    Stranded on buses overnight by a monster snowstorm that has shut down parts of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, hundreds of Catholic high school students from Nebraska and elsewhere nevertheless seemed to have things relatively in hand this afternoon. Returning from Washington D.C., where they took part Friday in the annual March for Life, they at least had food and water on board, said Tim McNeil, chancellor of the Archdiocese of Omaha. A nearby maintenance building gave them access to bathrooms. And while there was nothing resembling a chapel anywhere near the cars, buses and trucks stopped westbound between the Bedford and...

    This week, with 60-degree or warmer weather for Christmas Eve lasting into Christmas Day, you may feel a little guilty if you’re enjoying it. You may also be asking yourself if this unseasonal warmth is climate change in action. When the weather gets weird, we often have strong reactions to what’s happening out there. It may seem logical that if, somehow, humans hadn’t spewed trillions of metric tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere over the past century, we'd have a cold, snowy December as has often been the case in the past. Right? Wrong. This Isn't Climate Change. There...

    A young mountain lion had taken up residence under a farm porch in Nebraska.  Nebraska has a growing population of lions.  As with most predators, when the young reach adolescence, they are driven from the territories of their parents.  The choice is stark, the proverbial natural order without food stamps, or magical lemonade springs.  Find their own territory with enough prey animals to kill and eat; or starve.  Most starve. This lion was a bit smaller than most adolescents.  Perhaps its mother had been killed in a fight with another lion, or had been fatally wounded by a deer...

    A media source in Omaha is breaking a story.   Students can pose with guns for their senior portraits. The school board members did not think this was a controversial decision, along with 90 percent of the American public.   They voted for it 6-0.   I am surprised that it even came up for a vote. Perhaps I should not be, in our ever increasingly politically correct public schools, where nearly all initiative and responsibility have been taken from school boards and teachers by teachers unions and federal and state regulations.   Administrators are terrified to make any decision that might run...

    In an effort to make classrooms more gender-inclusive, teachers at a middle school in Lincoln, Nebraska were given teaching guidelines advising them not to use "gendered expressions" by calling students "boys and girls." The Lincoln Journal Star reports that the teachers have been advised to use more gender-neutral expressions like campers, readers, athletes or even purple penguins. The teaching handout called "12 easy steps on the way to gender inclusiveness" advised teachers to avoid separating students by gender, but instead by birth dates or preferences. For example, they could ask students whether they prefer skateboards or bikes, milk or juice,...

If this is the correct timeline, it would have been better for her to retrieve the pistol when the Dozer alerted.  It is not a good idea to leave an...

A number of Republicans are pushing to delay consideration of Hagel, the former GOP senator from Nebraska, requiring a 60-vote threshold on a procedural vote that Sen.

The incident occurred about 10 miles northeast of Ainsworth in Brown County. The hunter reported the shooting to a Nebraska Game and Parks Commission conservation officer. According to the hunter, the cat walked parallel to him at about 35 yards as he left his hunting blind, made eye contact with him, then circled in front of the hunter’s path. A subsequent investigation concluded the hunter was justified in killing the 150-pound animal. By law, a person may kill...

Applications for permits to purchase guns have increased by 43 percent since Friday, compared to the same time period last year. That means an average of 10 permits per day have been applied for to purchase guns. Also...

Bruning and his campaign remain mum when consistently asked if he continues to support Holder as attorney general in the wake of Operation Fast and Furious, especially with Holder’s demonstrable failure to comply with a lawfully issued congressional subpoena.

First, it threatens Don Stenberg, a proven conservative who is already leading incumbent U.S. Senator Ben Nelson (D-NE) in the polls. Gov. Heineman is a good guy, but by his own admission his heart is not in this race, and he's definitely no Don Stenberg. In fact, the Cato Institute recently gave Heineman a "C" grade...

    If a mountain lion had gotten to within 10 feet of me when I was 15 years old, I might have soiled my pants. Kudos to this kid for keeping his head and doing what needed to be done. From the Associated Press: LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission says a 15-year-old deer hunter shot and killed a mountain lion that was only 10 feet from him. The boy, of Wayne, shot the cougar Saturday near Creighton in northeast Nebraska. Officials say he was hunting a shelterbelt in Knox County and spotted the mountain lion 10...

    Omaha, NE – Some gun owners are saying “no” to proposed changes to Omaha’s gun registration rules, and the city of Omaha says “yes” to a new health care program. The city’s proposal to revise Omaha’s gun registration rules had gun owners from inside and outside city limits showing up in city hall—all hoping to convince the city council to shoot down what some say is “redundant” to current state and federal law. Omaha currently requires every handgun purchased within the city to be registered for a fee. “It duplicates the investigating that the state does with their purchase permit,”...

    A bill that clarifies the process of gun purchase application has passed the Nebraska Legislature, and it’s sponsor is “glad it’s done.” State Sen. Mark Christensen of Imperial said he sponsored the bill at the request of the Nebraska State Patrol. LB512 now assures that mental health records are more accessible in the sale of firearms in Nebraska. It makes records available to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System if they disqualify a person from owning or using a handgun. The District 44 senator said essentially LB512 assures second amendment rights. In the past, if a person had an...

    LINCOLN — Nebraska will keep its split electoral vote system for at least another year, thanks to a split vote in a legislative committee. The Government, Military and Veterans Affairs Committee was divided 4-4 in a straw vote on changing the system, State Sen. Bill Avery of Lincoln, the committee chairman, said Thursday. The informal vote marked the latest defeat for Republican efforts to return Nebraska to a winner-take-all system of awarding electoral votes. Sen. Beau McCoy of Omaha introduced the latest proposal, Legislative Bill 21. Since 1991, three of Nebraska's five votes have been decided by congressional district. The...
