October 24, 2014 Genius Award No Comments

TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .

Alan Knight, 47, a British man who faked being in a coma for two years to avoid facing a court date.
Knight was facing a trial for having stolen $64,000 from the bank account of an elderly neighbor with Alzheimer’s disease.
Knight claimed to be quadriplegic and so sick he sometimes fell into a coma.
He checked himself into a hospital to avoid court appearances, saying he was having seizures.
The suspect’s wife, Helen, was in on the scam saying she had obtained a doctor’s letter certifying he was “quadriplegic and in a comatose condition, bed-bound at home” after a neck injury.
However, surveillance photos showed Knight shopping, going on vacations and acting normal.

AND THEN THERE’S …..

Georgia Horrocks, 22, a British woman who is selling her imaginary friend on eBay.
Horrocks said, “My psychiatrist recommended that I say goodbye to Bernard (her imaginary friend).”
Horrocks is trying to receive some financial compensation for the sale of Bernard, but it is more important that he finds a good home.
Georgia hopes to sell Bernard for about £200 pounds ($320), and plans to send him to the highest bidder via imagination.

OR HOW ABOUT …..

Decoris “Red” Rucker, 24, and Chris “Crazy Chris” Hackett, who shot up a Texas house party because they lost at beer pong.
Rucker and Hackett were among a group of five men who became upset after losing a backyard beer pong game.
After a female opponent celebrated in their faces, the men ran from the home while firing wildly at party-goers.
An 18-year-old woman was shot in the thigh during the gunfire.
Cops charged the gunmen with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

OKAY, ONE MORE …..

Karla Farmer, 18, whose shoplifting arrest is a tad more embarrassing than most.
The items she swiped from a South Carolina Spencer’s Gifts included: Rock Hard erection cream, handcuffs, and Deep Throat desensitizing spray.
Mall security subsequently detained Farmer and handcuffed the teenager when she fought with them and tried to flee.
When police searched Farmer’s purse, they recovered the Spencer’s merchandise, as well as a bra and two pairs of underwear apparently stolen from a Victoria’s Secret.

Book about growing up in Bootheel to be sent to area schools

October 24, 2014 Local No Comments

Southeast Missourian

A collection of stories titled “Canalou: People, Culture, Bootheel Town” soon will be delivered to area schools by the Center for Regional History at Southeast Missouri State University.

Richard Montgomery of Sikeston, Missouri, made a $7,500 gift to the center to ship 500 copies of the book in November to schools throughout the region.

Montgomery is a longtime friend of the book’s author, Dan Whittle, a native southeast Missourian who lives in Tennessee. He spent much of his career as a newspaperman covering local, national and international events. Dr. Frank Nickell, former director of Southeast’s Center for Regional History, convinced Whittle to publish a book about his life and his stories. The Center for Regional History published the book in 2013.

“Canalou: People, Culture, Bootheel Town” may be purchased for $20 at the Center for Regional History, from Amazon.com and at local bookstores, including the Book Rack and the Sikeston Depot Museum.

Post Secondary institutions to work together 

October 24, 2014 Local No Comments

In an effort to better serve the communities in southeast Missouri, the only two higher-education institutions are burying the hatchet and working on a new partnership.  The presidents of Three Rivers College and Southeast Missouri State University recently sat down to share plans for the future.  TRC Spokesman Jonathan Atwood tells KZIM KSIM by the middle of the next semester, Southeast will have a new office on the main campus in Poplar Bluff.

A good example of the new relationship is the name chosen for their partnership with Mineral Area College in Cape Girardeau—the Cape College Center.  Atwood says the presence on TRC campus will allow students to get hands on experience without having to relocate.
