Space junk lands on California farm
10/19/2018 9:00am

KINGS COUNTY, CA KMPH - A mysterious piece of space junk that fell from the sky in Southern California appears to have been part of a communication satellite.But people still arent really sure what to make of it.A bright flash lit up the sky over the region last week, around the same time apparently that a metal object was falling onto a Kings County farm.The discovery was made Saturday, on a ranch south of Hanford, CA, about half an hour south of Fresno.That same day, Naval Air Station Lemoore ruled out any connection.And while Space-X recently launched a Falcon-9 rocket from Vandenberg Air Force Base, this was not a fragment.One of the companys vice presidents said he was fairly certain it wasnt from them.The tanks are too short, the liner looks like different material, and it also looks like it went through an orbital reentry, he said.But, it could instead be the same object that made the bright light last Thursday. A video of that event appears to show a satellite making reentry.One satellite was tracked making reentry that day, and it came within a mile or two of where the metal object was found.The satellite communications company Iridium identified the object as a fuel tank.They said it belonged to a low-orbiting satellite that was launched in the late 90s and re-entered the Earths atmosphere.

Authorities search for driver of deadly Liberty Lake hit-and-run, parents concerned
10/19/2018 1:14am

A small memorial is growing in Liberty Lake Thursday night for a woman who was fatally injured after being struck by a pickup truck while crossing the street at Country Vista Rd. and Mission Ave. earlier in the day. The truck fled from the scene.Liberty Lake Police are continuing their efforts searching for that driver. Investigators say surveillance video shows a late 1990s or early 2000s red Dodge Dakota or Ram truck leave the area after the incident.The woman was rushed to Sacred Heart Medical Center where she later died.Police have not released her name, but John L. Scott Real Estate of Spokane Valley posted on their Facebook page, It is with deep sadness that I inform you our friend and Liberty Lake broker Marilyn Dhaenens was the victim of a hit-and-run incident and passed away this morning. News of the hit-and-run spread quickly, especially among parents whose children cross the very same street that Dhaenens did.Two of my kids walk across the street to go to their bus stops, said Tom Stanley, a parent. Obviously that gives me a little concern.I get really concerned watching the kids out here, said Kim Hadley, who lives in the neighborhood. We have kids on bicycles and moms on golf carts, and its really crazy on school mornings. Hadley says the city just put up flashing hawk lights to warn drivers of the busy crosswalk.Im assuming in the near future its probably going to require a signal or a light or possibly a roundabout like they did down the street, she says.Anyone who recognizes the truck or who witnessed the hit-and-run is asked to call Liberty Lake Police or Crime Check at 509 456-2233.

K9 Khan takes down two suspects in one night
10/18/2018 9:38pm

Spokane Valley Deputy Tyler Kullman and his parter K9 Khan apprehended and arrested two suspects at two different locations overnight Wednesday.The first incident occurred at 11:30 p.m. where deputies responded to a burglary in progress at a business located in the 6000 block of E. Broadway Avenue. The property owner was told a suspicious vehicle had been parked at the closed business.Deputies learned that vehicle belonged to an ex-employee who had been fired, 56-year-old Charles R. Culp. The owner stated the business was closed, no one had permission to be inside and requested deputies check on the business. After several PA announcements that went unanswered. Deputy Kullman, Deputy Michael Keys, and K9 Khan began searching the property. A short while later, K9 Khan focused on a stack of tires and knocked them over, revealing Culps hiding location. Culp was taken into custody without further incident and provided medical attention at the scene before being booked for second-degree burglary.Nearly four hours later around 4 a.m. Thursday, Deputy Kullman and K9 Khan were requested to assist SPD officers locate a suspect with several warrants for his arrest.25-year-old Matthew R. Olson had two confirmed felony assaults and two confirmed misdemeanor warrants for his arrest and was believed to be hiding in the basement of a residence on the 5500 block of N. Loma Drive.Upon arriving at the property and having several PA announcements go unanswered, Deputy Kullman deployed K9 Khan. K9 Khan began searching the area and making his way to a makeshift wall with a door and old headboards stacked against it. K9 Khan started barking and jumping at the door, knocking the headboards over, allowing him to gain access to the door and to apprehend Olson. Olson followed commands and was taken into custody without further incident. Olson later told Deputy Kullman he heard the PA announcements but decided to take his chances instead of surrendering and going to jail. Olson was also provided medical attention prior to being transported to Spokane County Jail for his multiple warrants. Get your weather forecast from people that actually live in your community.
