SEWARD, Neb. — Authorities say a 55-year-old Washington man has been arrested because pot was found in his car after a traffic stop in southeast Nebraska.
The Nebraska State Patrol says a trooper pulled over the car for speeding about 10 a.m. Sunday near the Crete exit off eastbound Interstate 80. A drug dog taken to the scene alerted officers to the odor of drugs. The patrol says more than 83 pounds of marijuana was found in the car trunk.
The car driver and lone occupant was identified as Kris Robertson, of Camas, Clark County. Robertson remained in Seward County Jail on Tuesday. Online court records don’t list the name of his attorney.

Principal attacked by student at Nathan Hale: Coming on the heels of attacks in schools, some fatal, we don’t like to hear that a local high-school student has assaulted a principal. The principal wasn’t seriously hurt and the student was arrested.
Cemetery vandalism: We scratch our heads and wonder why people do this. A 21-year-old man in Camas has been arrested in connection with knocking over — and breaking a few — headstones in a cemetery. Many of the headstones were in the cemetery’s pioneer section. Some other people might also have been involved in the vandalism. Like we said, we wonder.
We’re waiting for word on the cause of death. You’ve likely heard that former UW football star Reggie Rogers was found dead at his Central Area home yesterday. Rogers had a long history of alcohol abuse. He was 49.
Mars Hill on the move? Actually, the church wants to move to a Sound Transit-owned site in Bellevue. The church is asking members and supporters to email Sound Transit and suggest the agency put its rail yard somewhere else.
Immigration rally today: Immigrants and advocates plan a rally outside the Bank of America building on Fifth Avenue in downtown Seattle.

CAMAS, Clark County (AP) — Police say a Camas man who painted the fire hydrant in front of his house red became angry about a note from the water department that said it should be yellow, like all the other hydrants in the city.
Police say the 54-year-old man who found the note was drinking Monday and decided to confront the city employee who left it. He took a gun and went to the employee’s house.
Witnesses called police to report two men fighting and a gun on the ground. No shots were fired, and no one was seriously injured. Officers arrested the man with the red fire hydrant for investigation of assault.

U.S. Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler made a big personal announcement Wednesday morning: She and her husband are expecting their first child.
The 34-year-old Camas Republican is due at the beginning of October.
“This fall, there will be yet another person in Southwest Washington who will — for their entire adult life — get to explain: ‘No, no, it’s pronounced Butler,’ ” Herrera Beutler wrote on her official Facebook page. “That’s right — we’re expecting a baby!”
In the months to follow, Herrera Beutler will field advice from her female colleagues on how much time off she should take around her due date, said her spokesman, Casey Bowman.
“She plans to work as long as she is able and come back as soon as it’s practical,” Bowman said by email. “She’s talking with other members of Congress who have been able to successfully balance their young families with their congressional duties and is learning as much as she can from them about what works and what doesn’t.”
Herrera Beutler and her husband, Daniel Beutler, married in August 2009. They live in Camas.
Herrera Beutler was elected to her second term in Congress last fall. She is the fourth woman to serve Washington’s 3rd Congressional District, and she is the first of those women to have a child while serving in Congress.

Two adults have been rescued and one juvenile male is still missing after their recreational boat sank on the Columbia River in Camas.
The Clark County Sheriff’s Office says the boat had been carrying just three people, not four as previously believed, when it went down around 10 a.m. Monday. The two adults were rescued and treated for exposure.
Rescue crews from several agencies in Washington state and Oregon are searching for the missing juvenile. Authorities believe he was not wearing a lifejacket.
A witness reported seeing the small watercraft, which was anchored, become entangled in the anchor line and overturn, tossing the boaters in the water. This happened near Lady Island in Camas.
