Arkansas Funeral Home No Haven for Meth Lab

WALNUT RIDGE, Ark. —

A funeral home might be a place for eternal rest, but police say an Arkansas man saw an opportunity to build a methamphetamine lab undisturbed by the living.

There was just one problem – the funeral home was across the street from the sheriff’s office.

Officers say Robert Lee Lewis left the light on in the basement of the Higginbotham Funeral Home in Walnut Ridge on Dec. 3. Officers noticed the light on after hours and walked into the funeral home through an open door.

Inside, police say they found all the components necessary to build a meth lab. Officers arrested the former funeral home employee when he returned.

The 43-year-old faces several drug charges and is free on $2,500 bond pending a Jan. 21 court hearing.

A telephone number for Lewis could not be found Thursday night.  From officer.com

Utah Man Who Thought He Was Wanted Flees, Gets Arrested

SANDY — He ran from police because he thought he had warrants out for his arrest. Turns out he didn’t have any outstanding warrants at all.

But after leading police on a chase and hopping fences in an attempt to escape before eventually being bitten and caught by a police dog, a 37-year-old man ended up being arrested anyway.

Just after 1:30 a.m., a Sandy police officer spotted a car on 900 East between 9000 South and 9400 South and discovered that the driver didn’t have any insurance, said Sandy Police Sgt. Justin Chapman. The officer attempted to pull the driver over, but the man fled, believing he had a warrant out for his arrest.

The man abandoned the car near 100 West and 8750 South and then ran. He jumped over fences and ran through backyards, Chapman said.

A K9 from the Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Office was called and tracked down the man. The dog bit the fleeing man on the left bicep, causing only superficial injuries.

Randy Quigley was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail for investigation of fleeing, reckless driving, driving without a license and no insurance. Chapman said detectives were trying to determine Tuesday if the car he was driving was stolen or loaned to him by a friend.

Proposed fee on smelly cows, hogs angers farmers

MONTGOMERY, Ala. – For farmers, this stinks: Belching and gaseous cows and hogs could start costing them money if a federal proposal to charge fees for air-polluting animals becomes law.

Farmers so far are turning their noses up at the notion, which is one of several put forward by the Environmental Protection Agency after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 2007 that greenhouse gases emitted by belching and flatulence amounts to air pollution.

“This is one of the most ridiculous things the federal government has tried to do,” said Alabama Agriculture Commissioner Ron Sparks, an outspoken opponent of the proposal.

It would require farms or ranches with more than 25 dairy cows, 50 beef cattle or 200 hogs to pay an annual fee of about $175 for each dairy cow, $87.50 per head of beef cattle and $20 for each hog.  More HERE

So now the government and the greenie-weenies want to impose a cow-fart tax on farmers.    This would put many farmers out of business, but that is ok with this moonbat in the article:

“It makes perfect sense if you are looking for ways to cut down on meat consumption and recoup environmental losses,” said Bruce Friedrich, a spokesman in Washington for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

A voice of reason, US Rep Robert Aderhold, doesn’t think the fart-tax will be taken seriously enough to be adopted, but then again, weirder things have come out of Washington.

Jihad for Retards: Nail bomber blames ‘war on Islam’

Nicky Reilly has learning difficulties and Asperger’s Syndrome

Nicky Reilly, 22, from Plymouth, last month admitted attempted murder and preparing an act of terrorism at Exeter’s Giraffe restaurant in May.

The Muslim convert’s note insisted he was not “brainwashed or indoctrinated”.

On Friday, a court put back Reilly’s sentencing until 30 January to allow doctors to assess his mental state.

Defence barrister Kerim Fuad said several doctors were concerned that Reilly’s extremist views, which had appeared to have dissipated, could be triggered again in the future.

The court heard how dozens of customers fled in panic when three soft drink bottles exploded in the restaurant’s toilets on 22 May.

Reilly had intended to run out into the packed dining area but could not open the toilet cubicle door. The caustic soda devices detonated in his hands, leaving him badly injured.  More at Winds of Jihad
