2Day in History

Today is Tuesday, June 29, the 180th day of 2010. There are 185 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On June 29, 1910, composer-lyricist Frank Loesser, who wrote the songs for such Broadway musicals as “Guys and Dolls,” ‘’The Most Happy Fella” and “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying,” was born in New York.

Ten years ago:
An overloaded ship carrying some 500 people, many fleeing sectarian violence in Indonesia’s Maluku islands, sank, killing all but 10 known survivors.

Five years ago:
  President George W. Bush, embracing nearly all the recommendations of a White House commission, said he was creating a national security service at the FBI to specialize in intelligence as part of a shake-up of the disparate U.S. spy agencies.

To protect and shoot

MADISON, Wisconsin (AP) — The chief forester in Wisconsin has turned himself in and paid a $263 fine for shooting a hen turkey out of season.

Paul DeLong says he made a mistake this spring when he mistook a tuft of feathers on the bird for a beard. He thought it was a male bird that could be shot legally.

DeLong heads the Department of Natural Resources’ Forestry Division, which manages Wisconsin’s forests.
DNR Chief Warden Randy Stark says DeLong turned himself in. Stark says a member of the public likely wouldn’t have been cited, but he decided to cite DeLong because he was a DNR employee and DeLong asked to be treated like any other agency worker.

The DNR says he won’t be reprimanded, though.

DeLong says he wanted to take responsibility for his error.

Camo-wearing bowhunters marry in tree in Iowa
ANAMOSA, Iowa (AP) — An Iowa couple whose passion for bowhunting encouraged Cupid’s arrow to strike wore camouflage to blend in with the wooded backdrop at their treetop wedding.

Forty-two year-old Kim Silver dressed in a silk gown made by camouflage specialists Mossy Oak, and her 61-year-old groom, Marvin Hunter, was dressed in camo shirt and pants at the Saturday nuptials.

They said their vows atop a tree stand hunting platform at the Anamosa Bowhunters Archery Club in the state’s northeast. The bride and groom occasionally punctuated the ceremony by firing arrows at targets.

Hunter said the couple had always joked about getting married on a tree stand. Silver said the pair they hunt together so much that the camo wedding “just seemed like the right thing to do.”

Man accused in machete chase near taco stand
SALEM, Oregon (AP) — Police say an 81-year-old man was arrested after he chased another man around a Salem taco stand while armed with a machete.

Salem police said Monday that Manuel Meza accused the taco stand owner of stealing a drill from his nearby business. When the taco stand owner denied it, Meza left and returned with a machete.

Lt. Dave Okada says Meza chased the unidentified man around the stand several times before officers arrested him on accusations of menacing and attempted assault. He was booked into the Marion County Jail.

There were no injuries in Sunday’s incident.
