Question of the Day
‘Deadliest Catch’ crewman convicted
EUGENE — A crab boat deckhand who appeared on the “Deadliest Catch” reality-TV show has pleaded guilty to three Oregon bank robbery charges and been sentenced to nine years in prison.
The shackled 23-year-old Joshua Tell Warner apologized to tellers who attended the hearing Wednesday in Lane County Circuit Court.
The Register-Guard reports Warner robbed a Eugene bank in October 2007 before he joined the crew of the Wizard and robbed two other banks last year after his stint in Alaska.
Warner’s attorney, John Kolego, says the TV appearance led to his arrest. Viewers who recognized Warner as a suspect in the robberies called police last fall, and a warrant was issued. He was arrested in a traffic stop in East Peoria, Ill.
Western peak among endangered war sites
RICHMOND — The Civil War Preservation Trust’s 2010 edition of the nation’s most-endangered historic battlefields includes Gettysburg, the Wilderness Battlefield in Virginia and a Western entry.
That would be Picacho Peak in Arizona, which is slated to close June 3 because of state budget cuts.
It is among the top 10 most-threatened Civil War battlefields contained in the trust’s annual report, released Thursday.
The list of battlefields threatened by development or neglect includes some in states where the Civil War still resonates on the eve of its 150th anniversary. They are located primarily in the South and the mid-Atlantic.
