Rockford-based Strathman Veterinary Services Inc. says Dixon Comptroller Rita Crundwell owes more than $52,000 for services to 67 of her horses, according to documents filed in federal court this week.
The company’s attorney filed a motion to intervene in a federal lawsuit filed in early May to recoup those losses when U.S. Marshals sell those and 334 other horses that belong to Crundwell.
An Internet virus was used to steal more than $30,000 from a fund that pays Dixon Rural Fire Protection District pensions, Dixon police told saukvalley.com, and they have traced the virus to a person in Massachusetts,
At least some of the more than 400 prime quarter horses belonging to former Dixon Comptroller Rita Crundwell should go on the block at a multi-day, live public auction later this summer in Dixon under a proposal by the U.S. Marshals Service.
Using www.fedbizopps.gov,the Marshals Service has posted a dozen or so documents detailing the requirements to bid for the contract – including the fact that it is open only to small businesses.
16-year-old John Brechon was a shy teen, until he discovered others shared his passion of cubing. A familiar example of cubing is the popular Rubik's Cube puzzle game. But it is much more than that. There are cubes of all shapes and sizes, and for Brechon, it is about beating the clock to solve each puzzle.
"They time your solves and basically whoever has the fastest times wins."
Sounds easy, right? That depends on how skilled the cuber is, and in some tournaments, the cuber must solve the puzzle blindfolded.
