Woman steals patrol car, rams deputies' cars

Monday, 11 November 2013 11:35 Published in Local News

NEW MADRID, Mo. (AP) - Charges are expected soon against a woman accused of stealing a Missouri State Highway Patrol car and ramming it into two sheriff's department cars.

The Sikeston Standard Democrat reports that New Madrid County officers were called Nov. 5 to a truck stop on a report that a woman was acting strangely. Officers determined the 24-year-old woman did nothing wrong.

A short time later, officers found the same woman in a vehicle parked on an overpass. She was handcuffed and placed in a Highway Patrol car.

Sheriff Terry Stevens says the woman got out of the handcuffs and stole the patrol car. She rammed a deputy's car as she drove away and another during the chase. The pursuit ended when the patrol car became stuck in a field.

 

Health law's troubles give GOP a much-needed boost

Sunday, 10 November 2013 09:48 Published in National News

WASHINGTON (AP) — The health care law's seemingly endless problems are giving congressional Republicans a much-needed boost by helping them move past the government shutdown debacle and focus on a theme for the 2014 elections.

Republicans' approval ratings plunged during last month's partial shutdown and worrisome talk of a possible U.S. debt default.

Now the GOP is back on offense.

Republicans pillory administration officials at congressional hearings.

They note that millions of people are losing their medical insurance despite President Barack Obama's promise that it wouldn't happen.

And they point to the program's flawed enrollment process.

Conservative groups are pouring money into ad campaigns reminding voters that many Democrats had promised that Americans could keep their current insurance policies.

These groups are especially targeting Democratic senators facing tough races next year.

Silicon Valley tank collection heading east

Sunday, 10 November 2013 09:47 Published in National News

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — The family of a Silicon Valley engineer who amassed one of the nation's most extensive historic military vehicle collections is giving the tanks, missile launchers and armored vehicles to a Massachusetts-based museum that will preserve and display some of them.

Until now, the $30 million fleet of tanks has been refurbished and housed in seven storage sheds on a family estate up a winding, forested road above Silicon Valley; they are visited only under privately arranged tours.

But in a deal inked on July 4 and announced Monday in honor of Veteran's Day, the 240 pieces have been signed over to The Collings Foundation, which preserves historic military aircraft and now plans to add a new military vehicle museum at its Stow, Mass., headquarters.
