Man accused of breaking into homes, filing paperwork to steal them

Man accused of stealing at least one Polson area home by breaking in, filing false paperwork
Apparently targeting homes either in foreclosure or about to enter foreclosure, Wilson would allegedly gain entrance, change the locks and file a flurry of bizarre paperwork - including "third-planet-from-the-sun" language in legal descriptions of the properties' locations - with the county clerk and recorder's office. The 53-year-old Wilson, who is being held in the Lake County Detention Center on $100,000 bond, was to be arraigned in District Court here Thursday morning. He is charged with three felonies (theft, deceptive practices and tampering with public records or information) and two misdemeanors (criminal mischief and false swearing) in regard to one of the houses in question. Lake County Sheriff's Detective Rick Lenz says the investigation continues into other Polson homes on which Wilson allegedly filed similar paperwork, and more charges could be forthcoming. The houses appear to include a home at which Wilson was allegedly living, another on which he was allegedly collecting rent, and one he allegedly attempted to use as collateral for a loan from a Missoula finance company.

Madison, WI D.A. threatens to prosecute teachers who teach sex ed

Juneau County DA warns districts on sex ed law - JSOnline
Madison — A district attorney is telling Juneau County schools to abandon their sex education courses, saying a new curriculum law could lead to criminal charges against teachers for contributing to the delinquency of minors. Starting in the fall, the new law requires schools that have sex education programs to tell students how to use condoms and other contraceptives. Juneau County District Attorney Scott Southworth said such education encourages sex among children, which is illegal, and could lead to charges against teachers. The new law "promotes the sexualization - and sexual assault - of our children," Southworth wrote in a March 24 letter to officials in five school districts. He urged the districts to suspend their sex education programs and transfer their curriculum on anatomy to a science course. "Forcing our schools to instruct children on how to utilize contraceptives encourages our children to engage in sexual behavior, whether as a victim or an offender," he wrote. "It is akin to teaching children about alcohol use, then instructing them on how to make mixed alcoholic drinks."

What's killing you in China today: Recycled Food Oil

Recycled Cooking Oil Found to Be Latest Hazard in China - NYTimes.com Last year NPR had a week-long series about life in modern China. One of the days was spent talking about the epidemic of toxic food--not in the too-salty and too-fatty American sense, but rather food that contains heavy metals, industrial lubricants, toxic waste, etc. This came right after Chinese corporations had been caught lacing milk and pet food with the toxin melamine to fool protein tests. Ever since I've been rather fascinated at how the thriftiness and new capitalism and shame culture (It's only bad if you get caught!) have conspired to make China into this perfect laboratory for deadly foods.
SHANGHAI — Regulators are investigating whether restaurants throughout China are creating food hazards by cooking with recycled oil, some tainted with food waste, and prominence given to the issue in the state-controlled media suggests that the problem could be widespread. The State Food and Drug Administration issued a nationwide emergency notice telling health bureaus to investigate the sources of cooking oil in mid-March. The notice came shortly after a professor and a group of students at Wuhan Polytechnic University announced that they had found widespread use of recycled oil in their region in an undercover investigation. The professor, He Dongping, asserted that recycled oil was being used to prepare 1 in 10 meals in China. Regulators are now searching for illegal oil recycling mills, and some health bureaus have begun releasing the names of restaurants and food establishments that were found to be using questionable oil. Last November, regulators in southern China raided several workshops for turning discarded waste — possibly even sewage — into cooking oil. . . .
