May 23rd, 2014 by Ric Hanson

IRVING, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys have signed fifth-round draft pick Devin Street to a four-year contract. Street is a receiver from Pittsburgh, where his 202 career receptions are the most in school history. He was the 146th overall pick earlier this month.

With Street signing Friday, the Cowboys have left unsigned only their top three draft picks. All five of their seventh-round draft picks signed during a rookie minicamp last weekend.

Unsigned are first-round pick Zack Martin, the offensive tackle from Notre Dame; second-round pick DeMarcus Lawrence, a defensive end from Boise State; and fourth-round pick Anthony Hitchens, a linebacker from Iowa.

DNR to hold meeting on Beaver Lake water quality

Ag/Outdoor, News

May 23rd, 2014 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is holding a public meeting to discuss the results of a study completed on the quality of water in Beaver Lake, located west of Des Moines in Dallas County. The meeting is set for 6 p.m. June 10 at the Raccoon Valley Bank in Adel.

The 34-acre Beaver Lake is on the state’s list of impaired waters because it has high levels of algae cause by too much phosphorous which impacts the recreation at the lake. The plan explores the amounts and sources of phosphorus and offers potential solutions to reduce those levels. High phosphorous levels often result from runoff of fertilizers from farmland.

After gathering comments, the DNR will forward a final plan to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for approval.

Former Harlan doctor pleads not guilty to sexual abuse charges

News

May 23rd, 2014 by Ric Hanson

The Council Bluffs Daily NonPareil reports a former Harlan doctor accused of sexually abusing a 10-year-old girl 15 years ago at Myrtue Medical Center, plead Not Guilty Wednesday, in Shelby County District Court. 81-year old Wing Tai Fung, of Scarborough, Ontario, Canada, was charged with second-degree sexual abuse, a Class B felony, for an alleged incident in January 1999. He allegedly molested a girl he was treating for a knee sprain at the hospital, according to a criminal complaint. If convicted, Fung faces up to 25 years in prison. A court date is pending.

Chicago police arrested Fung on April 28 at O’Hare Airport after he returned from Canada. He waived his extradition so the case could be tried in Shelby County. The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office is investigating other allegations of sexual abuse.

Former ISU basketball player sues woman who accused him of assault

Sports

May 23rd, 2014 by Ric Hanson

Former Iowa State basketball player Bubu Palo is suing the woman who alleged Palo had assaulted her. Palo was charged with two counts of sexual abuse following the accusations of a woman in 2012 who had been a classmate of Palo’s at Ames High School. He pled not guilty and the charges against him were later dropped. Palo was suspended from the Iowa State basketball team when the charges were filed and then reinstated once they were dismissed.

But the university suspended him a second time, citing student conduct rules, and Palo had to go to court to be reinstated to the team. The lawsuit says the woman and her mother intentionally used the legal system to harass Palo. It says his reputation was damaged and it cost him a substantial amount to investigate and defend himself from the charges. The suit does not seek a specific amount, but asks for a “just, reasonable and adequate compensation.”
