Fast birth

via Yahoo! News
Jereme Tauer Jr. was born at almost 100 mph as his parents hurtled down U.S. Highway 2 in northernmost Wisconsin in a Dodge Neon. His parents, Jereme and Lisa Tauer of Hurley, managed the birth without a doctor, pain medication or even stopping the car.

“We were just shocked,” said the baby’s grandmother, Billi Tauer of Hurley. “When (her son) called, he was so excited, and we thought it was just over the birth. He’s like, ‘Ma, ma, ma, we have a boy! We have a boy, we have a boy — and, and, and, you’re not going to believe — he was born in this car!”


The Navy has a saying for rough weather: “One hand for you and one hand for the ship.” (I won’t tell you the context. You can figure that out for yourself.)  In this case it’s “one hand for the baby and one hand for the steering wheel.” There’s more at the link.

Bet he didn’t see this one coming.

Tom Weber, a 22-year fire veteran, was put on administrative leave nine months ago after he was accused of asking an online psychic on a department computer whether he and others would be successful in getting rid of Middleton’s fire chief.

Fire Chief Aaron Harris discovered the query, and said Weber had exchanged e-mails with other people seeking to remove the chief.

Weber said he’s resigning effective March 31, and denied working against Harris. But he doesn’t dispute contacting psychics on department computers. A computer technician found other communications dating back three years.

“Everyone is entitled to their spiritual guidance,” Weber said.
