A South African judge today found Oscar Pistorius guilty of culpable homicide, or negligent killing, in the shooting death of girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp and declared him not guilty of murder.  The judge said there was not enough evidence to support that Pistorius knew Steenkamp was behind a locked toilet door in his home when he shot through the door in the predawn hours of Valentine's Day last year.

News Briefs:

Temperatures are expected to drop into the mid-30s by sunrise Saturday, and some areas could even see light frost. WeatherEye meteorologist Allison Kinney says clear skies Friday night make frost more likely. She says by Sunday, cloudy conditions will once again help protect against freezing temperatures. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the average date for the first temperature of 36 degrees or below in Madison County is September 26th, while the average date for the first temperature of 32 or below is October 4th. The average high temperature for this time in September in Norfolk is 78 degrees, while the average overnight low is 52. Our forecast for today calls for a high of 57 and a low tomorrow morning of 36. 

The nation's corn and soybean farmers will harvest by far the largest crops ever this year, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said Thursday in a new report. Bigger crops have been expected this year as adequate rain and cool temperatures made for favorable growing conditions, but the new estimates far surpass previous records. Corn farmers are expected to harvest nearly 14.4 billion bushels of corn, up from last year's 13.9 billion bushel record. The 171.7 bushels per acre yield is significantly higher than the previous record set in 2009 of 164.7 bushels per acre. The soybean harvest estimate also moved upward to a new record of 3.9 billion bushels. The previous record was 3.4 billion bushels in 2009.  The per-acre yield is now estimated at record 46.6 bushels per acre. 

The challenger in the 40th District legislative race is pleased that his opponent has agreed to at least one joint appearance before the November 4th election. Keith Kube of Crofton says he decided to run against incumbent Tyson Larson.  Kube and Larson will take part in a forum Tuesday evening, September 23rd beginning at 7:30 p.m. in the O’Neill Community Center. Kube says he hopes he and Larson will have a chance to discuss their differences on Medicaid expansion, tax reform and other issues. 

The Norfolk City Council will be asked to approve the 2014-15 budget Monday night before sharing a cup of coffee with area citizens. On Monday night’s agenda is approval of a budget that requires a 2-cent increase in the city’s property tax levy. The levy this year is 22 cents per hundred dollars of valuation, and the proposed budget calls for a tax rate o 24 cents.  Most of the city’s budget comes from a 1.5 percent sales and use tax and from lease payments paid by the Nebraska Public Power District. Monday night’s meeting will begin at 5:30 in the City Council Chambers at 309 North 5th Street. After the meeting, citizens are asked to join Mayor Sue Fuchtman and at least one councilman from each of the city’s four wards for coffee and conversation. 

The children at the Wesley Child Daycare Center in Norfolk weren’t even born on September 11th, 2001, but that didn’t stop them from helping their parents and other adults commemorate the day that will be engrained in their memories for the rest of their lives. Norfolk Mayor Sue Fuchtman and City Administrator Shane Weidner both spoke at the brief ceremony at the Wesley Center playground.  Members of the Legion Riders and the Nebraska National Guard were also part of the program. 

Today's Tickler: 

Our basketball team doesn't need more “shooters”.  It needs more “makers”.
