Suicidal mom jailed after being found in car with her kids MINNEAPOLIS (AP) A Shakopee woman is charged with trying to kill her two young children during a suicide attempt by carbon monoxide poisoning. Melissa Anne Lebeau, 21, was charged Wednesday with one count of attempted first-degree murder. She was jailed in lieu of $350,000 bail.

CLOUD (252-8740) 3D Audit of NAACP faults former officers5 spending MINNEAPOLIS (AP) An audit released today found that some NAACP officers squandered money on limousines, personal trips, clothing and children's toys at a time when the civil rights organization was plunging into debt. Myrlie Evers-Williams, chairwoman of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People board, announced the findings after a 10-hour meeting with board members. "As the nation's oldest civil rights organization ... we owe the public an honest and forthright accounting of our finances," she said. The organization has been burdened by a $3.8 million deficit. The audit focuses primarily on three former NAACP officers: Benjamin L. Hooks, executive director for 15 years; the Rev. Benjamin F. Chavis Jr., who replaced Hooks in 1993 and was dismissed last year after spending $300,000 in NAACP money to settle a sexual discrimination lawsuit; and William F. Gibson, longtime chairman of the board. "We found a specific number of in stances in which officer travel and expens es made by the NAACP appear to be excessive or unreasonable in light of its fiscal position, its own policies and procedures regarding such charges, and in comparison to similar charitable organizations," the audit's executive summary said. "We have also noted specific expenses related to individuals that we have found to be unreasonable and excessive." That included $32,459 in personal expenses Chavis charged to the NAACP for items such as personal clothing, children's toys and plane flights for relatives, the report said. Chavis is negotiating the final amount and payback of about $25,000 in personal expenses, Evers-Williams said. The report also found that Hooks had $5,000 in undocumented trips. However, the audit also found that the NAACP owed Hooks $16,000 in back pay and benefits, to which the $5,000 would be applied, Evers-Williams said. Gibson, who lost to Evers-Williams by a one-vote margin in February, had the highest amount of questionable spending $111,930. "While some of this $111,930 could clearly, in our estimation, have been resolved had Dr. Gibson been responsive ... we believe that a number of these charges represent duplicative or double counted charges for which he has already been reimbursed," the summary said. I heard about this great new deal from Cellular 2000 of mi Cloud. Well.. not I'm really supposed to tell anyone yet. See, it until July 16,. ..Oh, just forget it. It's too big of a secret. Or wait, I could give you clues, and that way I wouldn't exactly be telling you. OK... it has to do with local people making long distance calls on their cellular phones. Don't tell anyone, but these phone calls can be anywhere in the continental United States, but no one is supposed to know about this. I'm so bad at keeping secrets. I want to tell you the rest. OH I just can't!. I can't tell you, Aughhhhh! (There, I Said It) But you know, if the calls are long distance, but the charges aren't, should we still call it long distance? Or should we call it...
