Elderly farmer near Bois D’Arc pulls gun on 3 thieves who came back for more Vance West believes the men recently stole $3,000 worth of property from him.
BOIS D’ARC, Mo. — An elderly cattle rancher recently came face-to-face with three thieves on his property, and he took the matter into his own hands. The thieves might have been arrested if Vance West had been able to get someone to help him.
Vance West, 92, is a veteran and father of three. He lives by himself outside Bois d’Arc on more than 100 acres.
“See, there’s where they left,” he told a reporter, pointing out tire tracks. “They will be back. I think they will be back.”

Chad Knaus should be worried about reputation as a cheater
By Jeff Owens | Friday, March 02, 2012 1:40 PM EST
Chad Knaus said Friday that he isn’t worried about his reputation after his fourth NASCAR suspension in the past 11 years.
He should be.
Because a vast majority of fans are fed up with Knaus and believe him to be a blatant cheater.
Whether that’s true or not – or fair or not – the facts are not on his side. The championship crew chief has been penalized for technical violations on Jimmie Johnson’s car nine times in the past 11 years. He’s been suspended four times and has won only once on appeal.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has officially taken away nearly all collective bargaining rights from the vast majority of the state’s public employees.
Walker signed the bill to do so privately Friday morning. He planned an afternoon news conference in the Capitol.
The explosive measure passed the Assembly on Thursday following more than three weeks of protests that drew tens of thousands of people to the Capitol in opposition. The Senate cleared the way for passage with a surprise move Wednesday that allowed them to vote on the bill without 14 Democratic senators present.
Walker has said if the bill didn’t pass up to 1,500 state workers could be laid off. He rescinded the layoff notices Friday morning.
