2day in history
Today is Monday, Sept. 13, the 256th day of 2010. There are 109 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 13, 1970, the first New York City Marathon was held.

Ten years ago: With the government all but abandoning its case against him, former Los Alamos scientist Wen Ho Lee pleaded guilty in Albuquerque, N.M. to a single count of mishandling nuclear secrets; he was then set free with an apology from U.S. District Judge James Parker, who said the government’s actions had “embarrassed our entire nation.”

Five years ago: President George W. Bush took responsibility for federal government mistakes in dealing with Hurricane Katrina and suggested the calamity raised broader questions about the government’s ability to handle both natural disasters and terror attacks.

Musician rocks out hard
MADISON, Wisconsin (AP) — Wisconsin police say a street musician apparently upset by criticism of his music bashed a man over the head with his guitar, slammed another person into a wall and wrestled with an officer before being arrested.
Madison police spokesman Joel DeSpain tells The Capital Times that 31-year-old Brandin Hochstrasser, known as “Bongo Jesus,” was performing Thursday when a 54-year-old man knocked his music. DeSpain says the two argued and police were called when Hochstrasser began hitting his critic with his guitar.

DeSpain says Hochstrasser then charged the man, knocking him down. An officer used a stun gun to subdue and arrest Hochstrasser.

Online court records show no formal charges had been filed by Sunday.

A listed phone number for Hochstrasser couldn’t be found.

Minn. library gets book back after some 35 years
WINONA, Minnesota (AP) — Librarians at Winona Public Library were thrilled this week when someone returned a book that had been checked out some 35 years ago. The book is called “Small Voices: A Grownup’s Treasury of Selections from the Diaries, Journals and Notebooks of Young Children.” It’s a collection of journal entries that prominent public figures had written as children. Someone left it in the library’s drop-box as part of the its Amnesty Week for overdue books.

Reference librarian Robin DeVries said she’s thrilled to get it back.

Records suggest it was checked out in the early 1970s. But because the circulation system has since changed, it’s not clear who last checked it out.
