JUNE 21, 2019 (BRIDGEPORT, NEB.)  — The Morrill County Sheriff’s is able to release additional details regarding the crash that claimed the life of Nebraska State Trooper Jerry L. Smith, #373, on Thursday, June 20, 2019.

At approximately, 7:36 a.m., the Morrill County Sheriff’s Office received several 911 calls in reference to a three-vehicle crash west of Bridgeport on Highway 26, near mile marker 59. The 911 calls indicated that one of the vehicles involved was that of a Nebraska State Trooper. Sheriff’s deputies arrived on scene at 7:39 a.m. MDT.

The crash occurred when a 2002 Dodge Ram, driven by MaryJo Decora, 60, of Bridgeport, was stopped on the highway waiting to make a left turn into the Oregon Trail Memorial Cemetery. Decora’s vehicle was struck from behind by a 2005 Mazda Tribute, driven by Derek Lacrete, 28, of Lewellen. Lacrete’s vehicle hit the back, driver’s side of Decora’s vehicle, causing Lacrete’s vehicle to veer into the oncoming lane, colliding head-on with a Nebraska State Patrol 2016 Dodge Charger, driven by Trooper Jerry Smith, 51, of Scottsbluff.

Trooper Smith was pronounced deceased on the scene. Lacrete was ejected from his vehicle during the crash and was also pronounced deceased on the scene.

The Morrill County Sheriff’s Office, Nebraska State Patrol, Morrill County ALS, Scotts Bluff County Sheriff’s Office, Wyoming State Patrol, and fire departments from Bridgeport, Bayard, and Broadwater all responded to the scene.

The crash is still under investigation by the Morrill County Sheriff’s Office with reconstruction assistance from the Scotts Bluff County Sheriff’s Office.

Funeral services for Trooper Smith are pending. Details will be released when appropriate.

CURTIS, Neb. – Ron Rosati, dean of the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture at Curtis, plans to retire Aug. 5 from NCTA. Rosati was tapped as head administrator for the University of Nebraska’s sole two-year institution in July 2013.

 

Before completing his University of Nebraska service at year-end, Rosati will serve as senior advisor for the Rwanda Institute for Conservation Agriculture (RICA) in Kigali, Rwanda. Opening in September, RICA is an English language institution dedicated to educating and inspiring a new generation of innovators in agriculture in Rwanda.

 

“Under Ron Rosati’s leadership, NCTA truly reached new heights in providing academic and financial access to higher education, as well as career preparation in the ag and veterinary technology industries,” said Mike Boehm, NU vice president for agriculture and natural resources, and Harlan Vice Chancellor for the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources.

 

“I want to thank Ron for his exemplary service and dedication over the past six years and wish him the best as he transitions into retirement.”

 

Kelly Bruns, director at NU’s West Central Research and Extension Center based in North Platte, has been named NCTA interim dean, while continuing to serve in his WCREC role. Bruns will lead NCTA campus administration with associate dean Jennifer McConville.

 

“It has been a privilege for me to serve NCTA as dean,” Rosati said. “The college is an exceptional place to work due to its small size, focus on agriculture and veterinary technology, and its emphasis on experiential learning.”

 

Rosati is a native of New York and has earned degrees in agricultural education and agronomy. He earned his doctorate from Iowa State, masters and bachelor’s from Cornell University, and associate degree from SUNY Farmingdale. Prior to moving to Nebraska, Rosati served in administrative capacities as provost at Southeast Missouri State University, provost at Alfred State College, State University of New York, and was a dean at Texas A&M University, Kingsville.

 

Rosati taught agricultural engineering technology and aquaculture for 19 years at Texas A&M University–Kingsville, Illinois State University, The Ohio State University – Agricultural Technical Institute, and Iowa State University.

 

Rosati led strategic initiatives at NCTA including a 28.5% enrollment growth from 2013-2018, increased fiscal strength from deficit to fiscal health, and added academic programs in agricultural welding, equine industry management, a general agriculture online degree certificate, and partnerships in dairy and poultry management.

 

“NCTA has been recognized nationally for the quality of its academic programs and the success of its graduates. It’s been very rewarding for me to work with the faculty and staff who are responsible for those successes,” Rosati said.

 

Other administrative progress at NCTA the past six years included developing new procedures and policies for advising, admissions, registration, student payment procedures, student transfers, academic catalogs, student and employee handbooks, and Title IX and ADA compliance.

 

Increased appropriations by the Nebraska Legislature enabled significant campus progress in programs, student resources, and pay equity for faculty. New initiatives in public relations and recruiting, federal approval for enrolling international students, and reaccreditation were further benchmarks.

 

Bruns, who holds a doctorate in animal science, has served as director of WCREC since Nov. 2015. Jerry Volesky, longtime range and forage specialist, will serve as interim associate director at WCREC.

 

A national search will be launched to identify a new permanent dean of NCTA.

AUGUST 28, 2019 (CURTIS, NEB.)  — The Frontier County Sheriff’s Office, with the assistance of the Nebraska State Patrol and several other law enforcement agencies, has arrested a juvenile for making a threatening social media post toward Medicine Valley School.

The Medicine Valley Raiders finished 2018 with a 5-4 record and a playoff berth.  Flashing back to 2017 where the Raiders had a perfect regular season and a Semi-Final berth in the playoffs before losing to eventual Runner-Up South Loup.  The Raiders felt like the 2018 season was a disappointment.  Med Valley doesn't want to experience a 5-4 season again like last year, instead Medicine Valley is hoping they can use experience from QB Sam Heapy, and TE Quade Potter and others to help propel the Raiders this season and a deep run in the playoffs, but the Raiders know they have a tough schedule ahead of them.   Full Interview with Head Coach Scott Johnsen below.

Medicine Valley hosted Wauneta-Palisade in a Thursday night edition of High School Football.  Things were quite in the first quarter with a defensive battle going on by both teams.  It wasn't until the second quarter before Wauneta-Palisade put the ball into the endzone.  Medicine Valley would respond with their first Touchdown of the game right away to start the third quarter a 63 yd kick return by Sam Heapy gave the Raiders life as they were able to tie the game.  Then in the third and fourth quarters back and forth they went.  Medicine Valley has the lead thought by just two points in the final minute of the game.  Wauneta-Palisade faced with a fourth and goal from the Raiders 7 yard line, a pass thrown in the endzone falls incomplete and Medicine Valley hangs on to win in regulation 24-22.  Medicine Valley now improves to 1-1 on the year.  The Broncos now 1-2 on the season.  Next up for Medicine Valley is on Thursday to take on Leyton-Banner County.  The game will be played in Paxton.  Wauneta-Palisade next action will be at Bertrand on Friday.

PHOENIX (AP) — Tim Melville had to pause for a moment to clear his throat of some whipped cream.

He'd gotten the traditional condiment treatment in the showers from his Colorado Rockies teammates, in celebration of his first major league win.

Melville pitched seven innings of two-hit ball in his first big league appearance in almost two years, and the Rockies cruised to a 7-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

Melville, a 29-year-old right-hander with just six previous major league appearances who started this season in independent ball, limited Arizona to a first-inning double and a sixth-inning home run by Ketel Marte to go with four strikeouts and two walks. He also picked up his first hit — a two-out, fourth-inning single — and his first two career RBIs.

In April, Melville wasn't on a team when he came to a game as a fan at Chase Field.

"You win or you learn. I never look at it as losing," Melville said. "I've had a lot of ups and downs throughout my career and other opportunities in the big leagues. I'm very thankful for this one."

Melville was an emergency call-up from Triple-A Albuquerque earlier Wednesday to start in place of Jon Gray, whom the Rockies before the game placed on the 60-day injured list with a left foot fracture.

"I told him after the game, timeless. That's a throwback pitching style game. He could have pitched in the '20s, could've pitched in the '50s, '70s, '80s," Rockies manager Bud Black said. "That was fun to watch. A guy that understands how he gets his outs, how he changes speeds. He stayed just within himself and did his thing."

Colorado won the season series with Arizona, 10 games to nine. Alex Avila also homered for the Diamondbacks, who had their four-game win streak snapped.

The Rockies jumped on struggling Mike Leake (9-10) early with two runs on three straight singles and a fielder's choice in the first.

In the fourth, a hit batter, four singles and a sacrifice fly produced three more runs and a 5-0 lead. Leake got through five innings and was charged with five runs on eight hits. He's allowed 17 earned runs on 26 hits in 16 innings over his last three starts.

"Sometimes balls through holes can beat you," Leake said. "I got a little elevated towards that fourth inning. I could have stayed off the plate or more down."

Melville executed a squeeze bunt in the sixth to drive in Yonathan Daza, and Charlie Blackmon drove in his second run of the day with a single after Trevor Story led off the seventh with a walk and stolen base.

Marte hit his 27th home run of the season in the sixth, a solo shot to right field. Avila took Jesús Tinoco deep in the eighth for his ninth of the year.

"The theme here is we never got anything going offensively," Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said. "I think we were prepared, we just went out of the zone (swinging) too often."

PAYAMPS DEBUT

Diamondbacks right-hander Joel Payamps made his major league debut and allowed two runs on four hits in three innings. The 25-year-old from the Dominican Republic also had three strikeouts, with his first one as a big leaguer coming against the Rockies' Garrett Hampson.

UP NEXT

Rockies: RHP German Márquez (12-5, 4.71 ERA) gets the call to open a four-game series at St. Louis on Thursday. Márquez is 4-0 over his last five starts.

Diamondbacks: After Thursday's off day, the Diamondbacks are off to Milwaukee for a three-game series with the Brewers in a matchup of teams trying to stay in the postseason hunt. Arizona has RHP Merrill Kelly (9-12, 4.63) set to start Friday's series opener. The Diamondbacks have lost five straight at Miller Park.

Nebraska will kick off the 2019 season on Saturday at Memorial Stadium, taking on South Alabama in an 11 a.m. game.

Husker fans will see limited changes at Memorial Stadium this fall as college football celebrates its 150th season.  One significant change to the Huskers’ game-day routine will be the Unity Walk path when the team arrives at Memorial Stadium to begin preparations for each home game.

Below is a closer look at what fans should watch for at Memorial Stadium in 2019:

Unity Walk

·         The Nebraska football team will arrive at Memorial Stadium approximately two hours and 15 minutes before home games (approximately 8:40-8:45 a.m. this Saturday). Fans are encouraged to gather on the East side of Memorial Stadium to welcome the team at this time.

·         The Unity Walk will have a slightly different path this season.  After proceeding through the East Stadium loop, the team will unload the buses near the bell tower on the south side of the loop.  From there the team will walk through the parking lot on the east side of the stadium, past the national championship and Coach Devaney statues outside and enter the stadium through Gate 20.

·         Fans will be alerted when the buses depart the team hotel by a short burst of fireworks at the stadium.  This will signal that the team will arrive at the Stadium in approximately 8-10 minutes.

Spirit Squad Changes

·         Fans will notice changes to the Husker Spirit Squad for the 2019-20 season, beginning with Saturday’s game against South Alabama.

·         The Spirit Squad will resume basic stunting and tumbling as part of its regular routines, enhancing the game-day experience for Husker fans.

Husker Nation Pavilion

·         The Husker Nation Pavilion will once again take place at the Ed Weir Track and as always will be free and open to the public. The primary entrance to the Husker Nation Pavilion will be on the South side of Ed Weir Stadium near the columns.

·         The Husker Nation Pavilion features various forms of family fun and games for kids of all ages. Inflatable games (weather permitting) will be a regular feature, including an obstacle course, quarterback toss, hoops tic-tac-toe, hoops hotshot, and baseball toss. Face painting will also be available.

Inside the Stadium, Husker Fan Shop satellite locations are near Gate 6 (West), Gate 14 (NE), Gate 12 (NW), the West Stadium Club and the East Stadium Club.

POW/MIA Chair

·         Each game this season, a decorated veteran of U.S. military service will take his or her post next to this unoccupied chair in honor of the more than 800 Nebraskans lost in combat, but whose fate remains “UNKNOWN.” The chair is located in North Memorial Stadium Section 33, Row 18, Seat 27.

·         Nebraska will salute all Veteran's and active military at the Oct. 26 game vs. Indiana.

The Husker Sports Network from Learfield/IMG College

·         The Husker Sports Network from Learfield/IMG College will once again begin its coverage of Nebraska football games five hours before kickoff (6 a.m. this Saturday). The network will continue with coverage for approximately four hours after the conclusion of the game, including an exclusive one-on-one interview with Head Coach Scott Frost.

Commercial Break Clocks

·         A clock showing the time remaining in each media break will again be visible in Memorial Stadium. The new feature will allow fans to know when game action will resume on the field. The commercial break clock can be found on the upper east ribbon board near the south end.
