The Lincoln Journal Star reports that eleven Nebraska football players received black jerseys yesterday, as a new coaching staff went back to the routine of handing them out prior to the season.  Five defensive linemen got them in Jack Gangwish, Maliek Collins, Vincent Valentine, Kevin Williams and Greg McMullen.  Two linebackers received the honor in Josh Banderas and true freshman Dedrick Young.  Four defensive backs received shirts in cornerbacks Daniel Davie and Joshua Kalu and safeties Nate Gerry and Byerson Cockrell.  Two players who are listed atop the depth chart at their positions, linebacker Michael Rose-Ivey and cornerback Jonathan Rose, did not receive Blackshirts.  Whether this connects to the five suspended players Nebraska will be without for the opener has not been said.  Husker head coach Mike Riley will announce the suspended players later in the week. 

The Nebraska volleyball team has moved up in the Division I AVCA Rankings from fifth to a tie for fourth place with Florida.  The Huskers are 3-0 on the season after earning wins in the opening weekend over Tulsa, Grand Canyon, and Pittsburgh.  NU will be in action next when they play Texas on Friday and Oregon on Saturday in Austin, Texas.  Penn State remains first with Stanford and Texas second and third respectively.

News Briefs:

Norfolk firefighters spent Tuesday’s early morning hours battling a warehouse fire at the Appeara building at 218 W. Braasch Ave.  According to Captain Steve Bettendorf, firefighters were dispatched a little after 3 a.m. Tuesday, to fight the blaze that was burning mostly paper and textile products in the building’s northeast corner. Bettendorf says the fire is under investigation. 

A federal judge in North Dakota is allowing arguments over the scope of his injunction blocking a new rule that would give the federal government jurisdiction over some smaller waterways. U.S. District Judge Ralph Erickson in Fargo last week issued a temporary injunction requested by North Dakota and 12 other states, including Nebraska, to stop the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Army Corps of Engineers from regulating some small waterways under the Clean Water Act. The EPA said the injunction applied only to the 13 states that sued. But North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem, who filed the injunction request, says his reading of the ruling was that it applied to all 50 states. The judge gave attorneys until Tuesday file briefs on the issue. 

Death penalty opponents are vowing to continue their fight, even if capital punishment makes the ballot next November. Danielle Conrad with Nebraskans for Public Safety says the group will be closely monitoring the verification process, but it appears the group supporting the death penalty has more than enough signatures to make the ballot. Conrad says the group’s general election campaign will appear much the same as its anti-petition “Decline to Sign,” campaign.

The possibility of a government shutdown looms over Congress as it prepares to go back into session later this month. Sen. Ben Sasse says Washington is addicted to what he calls “short-termism.” Sasse calls shutdowns “stupid,” but says 12 Senate appropriations bills that have come through the committee process are being filibustered, and that that it’s led to a form of “brinksmanship,” where shutdown becomes possible. 

Monday was the last day of operation for the pharmacy portion of Lloyd’s Drug Mart in Norfolk. Owner Chris Vincent says Lloyd’s pharmacy will be closed for inventory Tuesday, and customer records and information will officially be transferred to the CVS pharmacy at 1301 W. Norfolk Ave.  Vincent says challenges associated with new health care laws are the reason he decided to sell the pharmacy portion of his business. 

Beginning Monday, receiving cost share from the Lower Elkhorn Natural Resources District for flow meters on irrigation systems will be tied to participation in the NRCS EQIP. At last week’s meeting, the board voted to end the 50-percent cost share on the meters.  The deadline for signing up for EQIP is Friday, October 16th. 

Anytime is train time. That’s according to Nebraska Central Railroad’s Manager of Safety and Training Taylor Kelley. Kelley says train traffic will start to increase in September as harvest nears, then October, November and December are their spike months. Kelley says engineers will be blowing their horns, trying to be a visible as possible, and asks that every time you approach railroad tracks always assume a train is coming.
