UPDATE: Northeast Nebraska man arrested after ramming trooper car with tractor

A 38-year-old Plainview, Nebraska man is being treated for a gunshot wound after ramming into a Nebraska state trooper's car with a tractor.  The State Patrol says the altercation started Tuesday morning with Aaron White when he caused a disturbance at his children's school and made several threats at a convenience store.  He then drove his semi-trailer rig to his farm near Brunswick and set it on fire.  Then he started up the tractor and ran into outbuildings, a vehicle, and fuel tanks.  When he rammed a patrol car, another state trooper fired and hit White.  He was flown to Mercy Medical Center.  The trooper was treated for minor injuries.

UPDATE: Penn says casino plans are 'blockbusters'

Penn National Gaming rolls out its proposals for a land-based casino.  At a public event Tuesday night, Penn, which owns the Argosy Casino, outlined two plans which are both Hollywood themed.  One plan would put a $160 million casino where the Holiday Inn on Gordon Drive now stands.  The other calls for a $167 million casino to go near the Port Neal interchange along I-29.  Two other groups are proposing casinos.  The Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission will decide who gets the gaming license next April.
