LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska prison officials are asking the courts to block an author's request to release drawings made by a child serial killer who was executed in 1996. Former television reporter Mark Pettit has been trying for 25 years to get access to drawings that John Joubert said depicted his fantasies to kill again. A judge sided with Pettit last month.

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - TD Ameritrade says it plans to invest $1.25 million over the next decade to help students prepare for careers as financial planners. The Omaha-based online brokerage says it hopes more students will consider the profession because the demand for financial advice is growing. Ten students have already received $5,000 scholarships and got to visit Wall Street.
