Manchester United says manager David Moyes has left the Premier League club after less than a year in charge, amid heavy speculation he was about to be fired.  United released a brief statement in its website today, saying the club "would like to place on record its thanks for the hard work, honesty and integrity he brought to the role."  United is seventh in the league, a season after winning its 20th championship by eleven points, and on course for its lowest league finish since 1990.  Ryan Giggs, who had worked as player-coach under Moyes this season, will take temporary charge of the club, but there has been speculation for some time over Moyes’ permanent successor.

News Briefs:

May 7th – that’s the deadline the City of Norfolk has given Woodland Park to make a decision on sewer service. At last night’s meeting of the Mayor and City Council, Norfolk City Administrator Shane Weidner said the communication between Norfolk officials and the SID #1 board has been good, but he is frustrated with the lack of action. Weidner told the Council that the SID board needs to act. The council voted unanimously to request that Woodland Park agree to a Memorandum of Understanding by May 7th, or proceed with building a separate sewer system to be operational by July of 2016. 

Gov. Dave Heineman was in Norfolk yesterday to discuss the just-completed legislative session, but local leaders wanted to talk with him about roads. Mayor Sue Fuchtman asked Heineman to convince her that using bonding to accelerate road construction is not a good idea, and City Administrator Shane Weidner asked what Northeast Nebraskans could do to get the Highway 275 Expressway project pushed up on the priority list. Heineman said he believes LB84, which sets aside a portion of sales tax revenue for road projects, will help speed up road construction in the state. 

A June trial has been set for a 23-year-old man accused of threatening three students at Northeast Community College.  John Ertzner pleaded not guilty on Monday in Madison County District Court. Officials say an armed man approached three students at the school early last month. A court affidavit says the students reported that the man followed them on a campus road and stopped next to them when they stopped, pointing a gun at two of them. Ertzner told an investigator he mistook the three for other men who'd chased him earlier in Norfolk. He said he'd put his BB pistol on his car console but didn't point it at the students. His trial is scheduled to begin on June 9.

 A Tilden man has been given 50 years in prison for trying to kidnap his former wife. Fifty-year-old Kevin Heldt was sentenced yesterday. He'd pleaded guilty to attempted kidnapping in exchange for prosecutors dropping several other charges. The judge credited Heldt with 337 days already served. Madison County Attorney Joe Smith says Heldt took his ex-wife from her home in May 2013 and took her to an abandoned farm. Smith says Heldt hit his ex-wife and terrorized her while demanding money. The woman later escaped when Heldt was distracted. 

An estimated 1,000 Nebraskans will receive insurance coverage for autism therapies under a new state law. Gov. Dave Heineman signed the bill into law yesterday, standing alongside two families with autistic children. The proposal allows for up to 25 hours per week of covered therapy until the insured person turns 21 years old. Required coverage would include applied behavioral analysis, a treatment method that has been shown to help autistic children learn to function better. Certain insurance plans will be exempt from the autism requirement, including those that are sold in the individual and small group markets under the new federal health care marketplace.
