The Texas Rangers claimed the American League West championship for the first time since 2011 by ripping Los Angeles, 9-2.  Cole Hamels went the distance on a three-hitter to finish 7-1 with a 3.66 ERA for the Rangers, who acquired him from the Phillies near the July 31 trade deadline.  The Rangers won each of his last ten starts as they roared past the Houston Astros to win the West by two games.  Texas will visit Toronto in a Divisional Series on Thursday.  The Astros will visit the New York Yankees in the Wild Card game on Tuesday night. 

Pittsburgh wrapped up home-field for Wednesday's National League wild card game against the Chicago Cubs by shutting out Cincinnati 4-0 yesterday.  J.A. Happ worked six innings and combined with three relievers on a six-hitter as the Pirates dealt the Reds their 14th loss in 15 games.  Pedro Alvarez smacked a solo homer, and Josh Harrison was 3-4 with an RBI and a run scored for the Bucs.

News Briefs:

The Nebraska Unicameral may be out of session right now, but state senators are busy working on legislation. Norfolk area Sen. Jim Scheer says one thing he is working on is school funding. Scheer says roads funding is also a top priority for him. He says he will also be working on some banking and security issues and on a suggestion that Medicaid payments be limited to Nebraska providers whenever possible. 

Governor Pete Ricketts says his decision to replace the head of the Department of Economic Development has nothing to do with ConAgra’s decision to move its headquarters to Chicago, even though the two announcements came on the same day.  While in Norfolk Friday, Ricketts said he realized while on trade missions in Asia that Nebraska needs to be marketed more successfully. 

Nebraska Sen. Deb Fischer gave a simple reason for voting in favor of the short-term spending bill that averted a federal government shutdown. She says she learned her first year in the Senate, in 2013, that shutting down the government doesn't accomplish anything. And Fischer says that if Congress failed to fund the federal government, money for veterans, Social Security recipients, and others doesn’t go out. Still, Fischer says these budget crises emerge, because Congress no longer follows the traditional budget process. 

The Nebraska Board of Education has approved seeking state funds for a schools health program to replace a private grant from a foundation that has been criticized for supporting Planned Parenthood. The board voted 7-1 on Friday for the move. The vote gives Education Commission Matt Blomstedt authority to ask state lawmakers for nearly $112,000 over the next two years for training school districts on establishing programs and policies covering a wide range of health topics.  The state money would replace a $75,000 grant from the Grove Foundation, which came under fire by critics who had concerns about the foundation donating to Planned Parenthood.  

Magnolias is coming back to its roots – in downtown Norfolk.  Magnolias’ owners Amy Renter and Rachel Kurpgeweit have purchased the building at 432 W. Norfolk Ave. that most recently was home to Smokin’ Buddies but might be best remembered as the long-time location of Tom’s Music House. Amy Renter says the building is more than 100 years old. The metal façade on the front of the building is scheduled to be removed Tuesday, weather permitting.
