Seems as though the two escapees from Black Rivers Falls brutalized a 71 year old convenience store clerk before their arrest Wednesday morning in Florida. Video tape shows James Misleveck and James Newman entering the store around 9 Sunday night, grabbing the clerk by his shirt from across the counter. The second suspect holding a knife, went around to the back of the counter where the clerk was standing. He opened the cash register and the second suspect grabbed the drawer from inside the register.

 

 

The first suspect also came around the counter, grabbed the man and threw him to the ground. He then proceeded to hit him several times in his head and stomach while he lay on the ground.  The second suspect, holding the register drawer set it down out of view of the camera. He then came back to where the clerk was, kicked the victim in the head and struck him several more times. The victim was initially transported to a hospital with serious injuries. Charges are pending in Hillsborough County, Florida now as well.

The driver was slowing down to a crawl, stopping at unmarked intersections, and spinning his wheels...

Those are the clues that a Sparta policeman used to pull over Paul Olson on suspicion of drunk driving two years ago. Olson claimed that the cop had no good reason to have him arrested, and tried to have his second O-W-I conviction overturned as a result. A Wisconsin appeals court disagrees with Olson. The court upholds the conviction, noting that the officer also smelled alcohol on Olson, heard him slurring his speech, and watched him walk unsteadily.

Too late to sue a Minnesota priest for clergy abuse...

The Minnesota Supreme Court makes that ruling in dismissing a lawsuit filed against a former priest with the Diocese of Winona, Thomas Adamson. James Keenan of Savage, Minnesota says Adamson abused him in the 1980's, and he just remembered the abuse recently. The high court says the statute of limitations expired before Keenan filed his suit. The diocese supports the court ruling, arguing that repressed memories are not generally reliable for making charges of priest abuse.

Bangor Post Office Nearly Ready To Reopen

Written by

Residents of Bangor may soon be able to go back to their old post office...

Bangor village president Greg Peterson says renovations at the Post Office are just about complete, and he's just waiting for word from regional postal officials on when that building can reopen. Mold and a mildewy mess led the feds to shut down the post office back in January.  But Peterson says the building's landlord has done the necessary repairs and will pay the bills, thought to total around 100-thousand dollars. Postal services were moved to the Hansen's IGA store shortly after the shutdown.

How much of a part did Christina Lorenz play in the death of a friend and the dumping of his body in La Crosse last August?

Families of Lorenz and victim Tony Du Charme have widely different views, which came out in court yesterday when Lorenz was sentenced to prison. Du Charme's relatives accuse Lorenz of being the main supplier of the drug that killed Tony, and they claim she called the shots on how to dispose of his body. Lorenz's father, Belmont, says police records show those claims are not true.

 

A charge of hiding Du Charme's body was dismissed when Lorenz entered a guilty plea to the homicide charge last April. Another person arrested in the case, Cain Moss, is waiting to be tried for first-degree reckless homicide.
