The Golden State Warriors tasted defeat last night for just the seventh time in 43 games.  Chicago put an end to the Warriors' team-record 19-game home winning streak by beating Golden State 113-111 on Derrick Rose's jumper with seven seconds left in overtime.  Rose finished with 30 points and Pau Gasol added 18 points and 16 rebounds as the Bulls dropped the Warriors' NBA-leading record to 36-7.  Klay Thompson scored a team-high 30 points for the Warriors but missed a shot as time expired. 

Zak Irvin had 14 points and twelve rebounds and Michigan rode a strong second-half start to a 58-44 victory over Nebraska last night.  The Wolverines led 23-18 at intermission and blew the game open after starting the second on a 13-2 run.  Irvin closed the spurt with a three-pointer and the Cornhuskers never got closer than eight points the rest of the night.  Aubrey Dawkins added 13 points.  Shavon Shields had 14 points to lead Nebraska, which fell to 0-5 against Michigan since joining the conference before the 2011-12 season.  The Huskers were outrebounded 34-26.  Nebraska drops to 12-8 overall and 4-4 in the Big Ten while the Wolverines are now 13-8 overall and 6-3 in the conference.

News Briefs:

Officials for a Northeast Nebraska group dedicated to expanding Highway 275 between Norfolk and Fremont to four lanes, has commissioned an economic impact study.  4 Lanes 4 Nebraska executive director Josh Moenning says the study will be conducted by Creighton University economist Dr. Ernie Goss. He’s hoping the results will demonstrate the economic growth potential of a Highway 275 expansion.  Moenning says he and other 4 Lanes leaders have met with local and state officials over the last month, including Governor Pete Ricketts, who said during his 2014 campaign, that the criteria for prioritizing road projects should include economic- growth potential. 

If a significant snow or ice event occurs in Madison County in the next six weeks, residents may have to be a little more patient than usual about snow removal. At Tuesday's meeting, the Board of Commissioners declined to use emergency procedures to purchase a new truck for District 1 without the usual bidding procedure. But Commissioner Ron Schmidt said that the truck currently used to spread brine on District One roads was in such bad shape that it would never be used again. One of the other road districts has a dump truck with a blade that can be adapted in an emergency to provide de-icing service. 

Atty. Gen. Doug Peterson has created a new bureau: The Bureau of Agriculture, Environment, and Natural Resources. He says part of the new bureau's role will be to fight federal regulatory over-reach, which he says threatens Nebraska's economic well-being. Peterson says the new bureau will also work with other states to settle water disputes and will champion issues important to Nebraska agriculture. 

A manufacturer of travel trailers has announced plans to consolidate all of its manufacturing operations to Hartington in Cedar County. TrailManor will be closing its plant in Tennessee, moving operations to Hartington. A company spokesman says a service center will remain in Tennessee, but the Nebraska facility is larger and better suited to handle production of present and future TrailManor products. Northeast Economic Development, Inc., has provided a substantial amount of funding and administration to this project using a combination of funds. The project is estimated to create at least 20 jobs at the Hartington plant. 

Northeast Community College is stretching its wings again, this time opening a regional office in Ainsworth to serve the western part of the college’s 20-county service area. Besides the campus in Norfolk,  Northeast has the College Center in South Sioux City, extended campus facilities in West Point, and one under construction in O’Neill, and a regional office and coordinator in Hartington.  Northeast President Dr. Michael Chipps says the Ainsworth office will allow the college to bring services closer to constituents in the Keya Paha, Brown and Rock county area. Chipps says a part-time coordinator will be hired.
