OREGON, Mo. (AP) - Authorities say no foul play is suspected in the death of a Nebraska resident found along railroad tracks in northwest Missouri. Holt County Sheriff Scott Wedlock says 59-year-old Shawn Sumpter apparently died of injuries from a fall. The death has been ruled accidental. He was from the Superior, Nebraska, area and had recently been at a Lincoln homeless shelter.

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - The Nebraska Supreme Court has reversed a trial judge's ruling that he did not have jurisdiction to hear a man's motion to withdraw his guilty plea years after he had already served his sentence. Francisco Rodriguez, of Omaha, was sentenced in 2004 to two years' probation for misdemeanor drug possession. Rodriguez said he pleaded guilty only after a former trial judge advised him that he could be deported if he pleaded guilty to a felony.

SIDNEY, Neb. (AP) - A 19-year-old Chappell (CHA'-puhl) woman has died in a traffic accident on U.S. Highway 30. Cheyenne County Attorney Paul Schaub (shawb) says the woman's vehicle ran into a westbound vehicle driven by a teenage boy. The accident occurred about four miles east of Sidney.

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - There are still about 1,000 student tickets remaining for Nebraska football, all of them in the south end zone. Nebraska plans to sell all 8,500 student tickets for sale. Student sales have lagged nationally in recent years.
