Fugitive who killed couple dies in prison - Albuquerque Journal

Monday, March 27, 2017

Crohn’s disease, hepatitis C, and gout,” he said in court, according to a transcript of the proceeding.McCluskey on July 30, 2010, escaped from a state prison in Kingman, Ariz., along with inmates Tracy Allen Province and Daniel Renwick, with the help of Casslyn Mae Welch, McCluskey’s girlfriend and cousin. Days later, McCluskey and Province carjacked Gary and Linda Haas, both 61, of Oklahoma, from a rest stop along Interstate 40 just inside the New Mexico line.The couple were driving to Pagosa Springs, Colo., for a camping trip when they encountered the fugitives. Province told authorities that the three were tired of driving and sleeping in a sedan, and they targeted the Haases after seeing them with a pickup and trailer, according to a criminal complaint.McCluskey shot and killed the couple in their trailer near Tucumcari, and the group then drove the trailer to a remote spot in Guadalupe County and set fire to it with the couple inside.Province was arrested in Wyoming about a week later, and McCluskey and Welch were arrested in Arizona on Aug. 19 after a highly publicized nationwide manhunt.In 2013, federal prosecutors in Albuquerque tried McCluskey in a death penalty case. The prosecution was rare because New Mexico had already outlawed the death penalty at the time, but the state law didn’t affect federal prosecutions.A jury found McCluskey guilty of all counts after an eight-week trial and found that McCluskey was eligible for the death penalty. But a jury in the capital trial that followed was unable to reach a unanimous verdict, and McCluskey was sentenced to life in prison.Province is serving a life sentence in a state prison in Arizona. Welch is in a federal prison in Fort Worth, according to prison websites.

A Lost Landmark: Grace Lutheran's A-frame dismantled - Kdminer

Monday, January 16, 2017

Aaron Ricca.The A-frame sanctuary at Grace Lutheran Church on Harrison Street was dismantled Tuesday. It was built in 1964.After 53 years of confirmations, weddings, baptisms and funerals, a historic Kingman landmark is no more.The original A-frame Grace Lutheran Church on Harrison Street was stripped of its last board and nail Wednesday afternoon. The only remnants are the baptismal font and a large cross that let the heavens shine through the northern roof of the chapel.“It’s not just a building,” said Jan DuBois, 80, who moved to Arizona with her family from Iowa in the 1960s. “The church represented a vision of believers to start a congregation in Kingman.”Ground was broken April 26, 1964 on the site of Kingman Riding Stables owned by Flay Peterson. The first worship service was held that July.DuBois and Carol Hurst, also 80, were members of the early congregations. Before the church was built, they would attend services held at the Van Marter Mortuary downtown – now the St. Vincent de Paul thrift store.Lewis Equipment Services started meticulously tearing the structure down Jan. 3. Pastor Jack Williams said the building was condemned because, like many other historic buildings in Kingma

'Fresh start' for St. Patrick: Former church campus will be razed, given new life as housing - Omaha World-Herald

Monday, June 06, 2016

Sisters of Mercy.The existing church structure was dedicated in 1910 by the Rev. John Smith, yet another native of Ireland. Edward Flanagan arrived in 1913 and during a three-year stint opened a workingman’s hotel on 11th Street with parishioners providing food, clothes and linens. He went on to found Boys Town.During the 1920s and ’30s, parishioners held festivals across the street in the Western League Ball Park, the predecessor of Rosenblatt Stadium. The current school, gym and rectory were built in various years after the church.Woodling said the neighborhood is so old that a curb outside St. Patrick’s front door has a ring in it where horses used to be tied.Pews and other treasures from the church already have been sold or auctioned. A local collector bought the cherubs. Stained-glass windows went to Omaha’s St. Elizabeth Ann Seton and a few other churches.Woodling promised the church cornerstone to a longtime parishioner baptized and married there. He’ll allow tours before the wrecking ball.Meanwhile, sale proceeds helped St. Patrick’s sister parish, St. Frances Cabrini, to buy the former Christ Child facility to extend its grounds near 10th and William Streets. Many former St. Patrick families now attend Cabrini.As he did at St. Ann, Woodling plans to save bricks from the outgoing St. Patrick to offer families that want a keepsake.Looking ahead, he wants to set a foundation for yet another set of residents.“Hopefully we can create great memories — different, but great ones — for them as well.”Contact the writer: 402-444-1224;

Locals at inauguration share their experiences - New Castle News

Monday, February 06, 2017

It reminds me of FDR, when he hired his staff to work for $1 per year. They’re passionate and they’re experts and I get the same feeling.”CHRIS KINGMANFor Chris Kingman, being at yesterday’s Inauguration was a humbling, once-in-a-lifetime experience.As he stood in the crowd behind the reflecting pool at the Capitol Building, Kingman said he felt a sense of pride in the country.“There were smiles all around, and it was a peaceful transfer of power,” Kingman said.The New Castle High School graduate and funeral director with the J. Bradley McGonigle Funeral Home and Crematory was there with his father, Brian Kingman.The location where they stood — the red zone — to watch the events on a large screen was “much better than where we were originally going to be on the Mall.”The inaugural activities were exciting for both of them, Kingman said.“It was something we looked forward to for awhile,” he pointed out, adding the mood around them was very upbeat.“He (Donald Trump) spoke differently than what we are used to hearing. He spoke of God quite a few times and I thought that was very important.”The president’s message centered on bringing America back together again, Kingman explained.“I felt that he was addressing a unity for everyone regardless of skin color or political statements.”America coming first was another significant part of what the president addressed, Kingman noted, adding that there was mention of creating more jobs and restoring respect with other countries.In the area of the Mall and the Capitol, there were no protests going on and security was tight, Kingman pointed out. He was aware of some protesting occurring outside of those two areas but none seemed to get out of hand, he thought.Of Trump, Kingman said, “He truly wants to bring people together and never let the American people down. I’m enthused about his coming into office and the things he may do.”Tickets to the inauguration were a Christmas gift from Kingman and his girlfriend to his dad. The pair left early yesterday morning and traveled to the Washington, D.C. area by bus, arriving there about 7:30 a.m. They were scheduled to start for home late yesterday afternoon.AMANDA ‘MANDY’ THARPETaking a brief detour to her apartment in Virginia on Friday afternoon, Amanda “Mandy” Tharpe caught her breath between the inauguration, parade and the ball she would attend that nightA Neshannock Class of 2000 member, Tharpe is deputy legislative director and counsel in the office of Sen. Mike Rounds of South Dakota. Doubting that she could go from her home to Friday’s events due to the crowds and closed streets, Tharpe said she spent the night at the home of a friend who lives on Capitol Hill.“The streets were closed, clogged by a lot of people,” she said. “Anything you want to do this weekend you have to calculate that it will take extra time.”Tharpe said that at 8 a.m. she took her place on the West Lawn of the Capitol and waited for the noon inauguration. “They broke for lunch then the parade started,” she said. “We were right at the beginning of the parade. Trump was still in the car at that point. I heard that he and his wife did get out and walk toward the end of the route.”The rain, she said, did not dampen the enthusiasm of those around her.“It drizzled off and on but people were prepared for the weather. They pulled their ponchos out.”She said protesters never got close enough to disrupt inaugural proceedings.“When we got there, there were maybe 80 people trying to block the gates but people were able to get through. The police kept the protesters separate and as long as you had a ticket, you could get anywhere you wanted to be.”She said protesters were kept five to six blocks away from the parade route. “The police didn’t allow them to get too close.”This was Tharpe’s second inauguration. She said she attended the second George W. Bush inauguration in 2005.She said she was not within earshot to hear Trump and Vice President Mike Pence repeat the oaths of office. “We were close enough to see what they w
