Jake Arrieta has become baseball's first 17-game winner in most emphatic fashion.  The Chicago Cubs right-hander tossed a no-hitter against the Los Angeles Dodgers, the second time in ten days the Dodgers were no-hit.  The Cubs won 2-0.  Kris Bryant's two-run homer in the first inning produced all the scoring.  Arrieta is now 17-6.  It's the Cubs' 14th no-hitter, and their first since Carlos Zambrano did it in 2008.  Arrieta is just the third visiting pitcher to toss a no-hitter at Dodger Stadium.  His no-hitter followed one that Houston's Mike Fiers tossed against the Dodgers on Aug. 21. 

The United States Tennis Association says Maria Sharapova has pulled out of the U.S. Open on the eve of the tournament because of a leg injury.  It's the second time in three years that the 2006 champion has withdrawn from the year's final Grand Slam event.  Sharapova has not played a match since losing to Serena Williams in the Wimbledon semifinals in July.  She withdrew from hard-court tournaments in Toronto and Cincinnati in August, citing a right leg strain.

News Briefs:

Officials in Cedar County say two people have been killed in a head-on crash on state Highway 12 near Wynot. The Cedar County Sheriff's Office says in a news release that deputies were called just after 3 p.m. Friday to the crash site three miles west of the intersection of Highways 12 and 57. Investigators say a car driven by 22-year-old Mollie Schieffer, of Fordyce, was eastbound when it crossed the center line and collided head-on with a pickup driven by 63-year-old Bradley Schumacher, of Crofton. Bother Schieffer and Schumacher were pronounced dead at the scene. The crash remains under investigation. 

The family and friends of a Laurel man who has been missing since July in Badlands National Park in southwestern South Dakota hope he will be found. Thirty-nine-year-old Joshua Jacobsen is believed to have entered the park on July 12, and his vehicle was found in campground on July 17. Authorities called off the search for him in early August. Christine Jacobsen-Bucy says it's hard to remain positive about her son's disappearance. Jacobsen had moved to Laurel about a month before his disappearance to take a chef's job at a new restaurant there. 

A Nebraska State Penitentiary correctional officer has undergone surgery for broken bones in his face after being attacked by an inmate.  The attack occurred Monday at the Lincoln prison.  Nebraska Department of Correctional Services Director Scott Frakes says the officer had ordered the inmate to stand for a search. Frakes say the inmate refused to comply, then hit the officer, knocking him to the ground and hitting the guard several more times. Other officers restrained the inmate and took the assaulted guard to a hospital. 

Nebraska 3rd District Congressman Adrian Smith has announced his opposition to the nuclear deal reached with Iran. Smith says he wanted to take time to study the issue before going public with his opinion. Smith says he believes lifting economic sanctions against Iran will ultimately lead to more money being funneled to terrorists. 

Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse and his colleagues return to Washington this month, and one of their first orders of business will be to procure a new federal highway bill. Sasse says it’s important that bill be long-term, because he says short-term patches waste millions of taxpayer dollars. Sasse held a town hall meeting in Norfolk last Thursday. 

A host of new laws are taking effect in Nebraska, leading to changes ranging from costlier marriage licenses to expanded opportunities for nonviolent prisoners to be released for parole and probation. A total of 181 laws took effect Sunday, three months after the Legislature adjourned. The marriage license change means fees will increase from $15 to $25.  Sunday would have marked the end of Nebraska's death penalty, but a repeal effort is likely on hold until November 2016. 

A Nebraska agricultural group is working with state lawmakers on a proposed tax credit for wind and solar energy projects. The effort fell short of passing last session but backers of the incentives say they'll try again in 2016. Nebraska Farmers Union President John Hansen says tax credits would help Nebraska to compete with other states while relying more on renewable, green resources -- instead of fossil fuels -- to power their homes.
