FARMING ACCIDENT CLAIMS LIFE

 

Tragedy struck in a farming accident Monday morning, claiming the life of an Addieville basketball referee and former Okawville High School athlete.  27 year-old Nick Renegarbe died after falling into a grain bin. Renegarbe was working with his uncle on the family farm where he lived with his wife and infant child. Renegarbe and his uncle were working in the top of the large grain bin, leveling the corn out.  According to Washington County Coroner Thomas Coy, Renegarbe lost his footing and fell into the center of the corn bin, causing his death. The temperature inside the bin was 128 degrees. Coy said cardiac arrest and suffocation were the causes of death. 


WALL STREET BAILOUT VOTE

 

A historic vote, on Capitol Hill, took place Monday as the House of Representatives voted against the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008, popularly known as the Wall Street Financial Bailout, thus sending the stock market plummeting. Congressman John Shimkus voted against the bill explaining "I firmly believe that those who invest, assume risk, work hard, and are successful should be able to earn a return on their money and those that fail should not then come to the government for a bailout". He added, "This plan was both bad government and bad for taxpayers".
