Defending national champion Texas' road back to the NCAA volleyball final four runs through familiar territory in Nebraska. The Cornhuskers parted ways with Texas in 2011 when they joined the Big Ten. But the old Big XII rivals are on a collision course in the Lincoln Regional. The top-seeded 25-2 Longhorns take a 21-match win streak into their semifinal against 34-2 American this evening at 5:00. They'll play the eighth seeded 25-6 Huskers on Saturday if Nebraska beats ninth seeded 26-3 San Diego tonight at 7:00. Other regionals are in Lexington, Ky., Champaign, Ill., and Los Angeles. Winners move to the final four next week in Seattle. Texas beat Nebraska in a five-set match in Austin in September and has won six of the last eight meetings with the Huskers.

Northeast Community College is just one step away from adding two new programs of study for the college catalog. At yesterday's meeting, the Board of Governors gave approval to submit the programs to the Nebraska Coordinating Commission for Post Secondary Education. If accepted, both programs will begin in the fall of 2014. One of the programs is an associate of applied science program for those in the health care field: Health Information Management Systems. The other is called Diversified Manufacturing Technology, and provides an overview of the manufacturing industry.
Another bond refinancing will save the Norfolk Public School District about $100,000. Approval was given at Monday's Board of Education meeting to refinance about $4 million worth of short-term bonds from a 2005 issue. Director of Business Services Bill Robinson explained that local banks are likely to pick up the bond offering. He says the move keeps the district on track to be debt free by 2022. Earlier this year, the school district refinanced the rest of the 2005 bonds.
Classes C-2 and C-1 had the Johnny Carson Theatre spotlight yesterday at the State High School One-Act Play Production Championships. Hartington Public captured its third straight Class C-2 crown with "The Perils of Lulu." Pawnee City took runner-up honors, while West Point Guardian Angels finished third in the six-school field. Later, Malcolm took home Class C-1 honors with "Blues." Homer was runner-up, and Wisner-Pilger fifth. Judges honored Savannah Scoville of Hartington and Chase Grizzle of Pawnee City as outstanding female and male performers. Trenna Launsby of Homer and Marcus Manley of Louisville earned those same honors in Class C-1.

They’re followed in 45-minute increments by Gothenburg, Bennington, York, Pierce and Omaha Concordia. The Pierce play “After Midnight, Before Dawn,” is set for 11:30.
“Get Norfolk to Norfolk!” That was the rallying cry for Norfolk Senior High’s One-Act Play Production. After winning the district competition Saturday in Kearney, it's mission accomplished. Norfolk is performing “The Diviners” – about a mentally challenged boy during the 1930s depression, who has a special gift of being able to find water. Norfolk is one of four schools vying for the Class A state title. The other three: Lincoln High, Lincoln North Star and Gretna have all had success on the stage in recent years; Gretna is the three-time defending state champ. Lincoln High leads off the Class A competition at 2:00. Norfolk follows at 2:45, then it’s Gretna and North Star. Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for students.
