News

May 25th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

PAPILLION, Neb. (AP) – An Iowa woman has been convicted of trespassing and criminal mischief for smashing windows at a defense contractor’s building near Offutt Air Force Base south of Omaha.  Mike Pilmaier is a former Bellevue police officer, and he told the jury Tuesday that he found Jessica Reznicek, of Des Moines, near a baseball bat outside the Bellevue offices of Northrop Grumman on Dec. 27. Pilmaier says Reznicek told him she used it to smash windows and had gone to the building to get documents that she thought belonged in the public’s hands.

The Omaha World-Herald reports that Reznicek testified that she felt compelled to act because Northrop Grumman had weapons contracts with the U.S. government.  Three other people were with her that night, but their charges have been dropped.

May 25th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

The Iowa Western Community College baseball team won’t need Google Maps or GPS to find its way to Grand Junction, Colorado. The Reivers are headed to the NJCAA Division I World Series for the 10th time in the last 14 years and while the 11 and a half hour route remains the same, it never gets old. The Reivers not only have experience playing in the World Series but winning it as well. The will be in search of their fourth title since 2010.
