A 4 The Sioux City Journal, Tuesday, December 18, 1990 Siouxland Liquor delivery met with arrest John Joseph Nilgcs, 28, of Jefferson, S.D., appeared in court Friday on allegations of transporting illegal quantities of liquor into Iowa. District Associate Judge LM. Goldblatt set preliminary hearing for Jan. 3. Nilges signed a S600 appearance bond. Police said Nilges was arrested in a sting operation with the cooperation of the Law Enforcement Intelligence Network. Nilges delivered the allegedly illegal quantity of liquor to a Sioux City address and was arrested there Friday morning. Police said the state seized the vehicle he was driving, owned by Miller Liquor Store of North Sioux City. "Periodically we are required to run a sting to get the attention of people willing to bring liquor into Iowa in large amounts, in violation of our statues," Police Chief Gerald P. Donovan said Monday. "This law applies to whoever brings it in, whether that person is working for a liquor store or doing it for himself. There is a limit to the amount the law permits." Drug charges bring sentence A Sioux City man convicted on drug charges this fall was sentenced Monday to four months in jail. James Wayne Carlson, 54, 100 Main St., was given the term by Woodbury County District Court Judge Phillip S. Dandos following his Oct. 26 conviction on possession of a controlled, substance, an aggravated misdemeanor. Carlson was originally charged with the class D felony of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance after sheriff's officials found him with an amount of marijuana in rural Woodbury County on Oct 2, 1988. One sentenced in defender's burglary One of six persons charged in connection with the Sept. 26 burglary of the Woodbury County Public Defender's Office has been sentenced to 10 years in prison. Gregory Richard Bradley, 19, a transient, received the maximum term Monday from District Court Judge Michael S. Walsh. The sentencing came after Bradley, as part of a plea agreement, pleaded guilty to one count of second-degree burglary. To be dismissed are two counts of second-degree burglary and one count of second-degree theft, all stemming from the September break-in of the Benson Building. Bradley pleaded guilty to the break-in of the public defender's office, in which a briefcase, keys, a compact disc player and discs were among items taken. Prosecuting Assistant County Attorney Brian Buckmeier said five persons remain scheduled for trial in connection with the break-ins and thefts, Siouxlander on 'Unsolved Mysteries' SOUTH SIOUX CITY The NBC Television series "Unsolved Mysteries" Wednesday at 7 p.m. will air the story of a South Sioux Ciiy woman's attempt to find out what happened to her grandmother, who disappeared 80 years ago. "I feel I'm going to find out something," says Geneva Fuchser. "I feel that the way this has gone and all I've been through to get to this point that something is going to come of this." Her grandmother, Conradina Wilhelmina Hcidtmann Olson, was last seen in 1910 boarding a train. Olson told her four children she was going to the doctor or the dentist and would return the next day. Fuchser believes her grandmother lies in an unmarked grave near Nevada, Mo. The woman buried in that grave was found dead with a bullet through her heart and was buried near the railroad tracks where she was found. Ex-Job Service official loses case DES MOINES (AP) An administrative law judge has upheld the firing of a former Job Service of Iowa administrator who an audit said was responsible for cost overruns totaling nearly $2.5 million. Hearing officer Susan Bolte denied the appeal of James Hunsaker's firing in January by Employment Services Director Cynthia Eisenhauer, who removed Hunsaker as supervisor of the Job Service's Cedar Rapids district. The action came after a state audit blamed a $1.1 million cost overrun in fiscal 1989 on his spending and hiring practices in his previous job as chief of Job Service's bureau of field operations. That was followed by a $ 1.4 million overrun in the year ending last June 30. Hunsaker's attorney, David Goldman, said he is surprised by. the decision. He said evidence showed Hunsaker already had been disciplined. Candidate files contempt suit LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Defeated 30th District Legislative candidate Paul Korslund of Beatrice filed a petition in Lancaster County District Court Monday asking that three members of the state Board of Canvassers be held in contempt for certifying incumbent Sen. Dennis Byars as the winner last week. Byars was the apparent victor in the Nov. 6 election with a 40-vote margin. Korslund went to court and succeeded in having Lancaster County District Court Judge Bernard McGinn order that 508 absentee ballots could not be counted because they were initialed, not signed, by election officials.

(AP) A startled jackrabbit sentry to the broken foundations of long-abandoned buildings darts across an empty field, his solitude broken by the tramp of booted feet. It's been a long time since this much interest was paid to the former Alliance Army Air Base, now home to the Alliance Municipal Airport, a golf course and a gun club. Two members of the Nebraska State Historical Society are trying to record the history of the Alliance base and the 19 other World War II vintage military installations in the state. Bob Hurst of Sidney, a member of the state's historic preservation board, and Tom Buecker, State Historical Society curator at Fort Robinson, are making an historic preservation survey of Alliance and the 11 other state airfields, the four ammunition manufacturing and storage depots and four major prisoner of war camps. The two recently completed their three-day survey of the Alliance airfield. "We're taking inventory," Buecker said, "to see what remains from the World War II period. It's what we call 'site reconnaissance.' We see what's left," Buecker said he and Hurst started in Alliance because it was close to home, but also because it was by far the largest of the 12 Nebraska airfields. "Here at Alliance, this was a major air base," Buecker said. "There's still a lot of (building) foundations and that type of thing." The two men have cataloged more than 600 structures. "At a lot of places, like the Harvard Air Base (near Hastings), they removed the buildings and farmed the ground." In its heyday, there were 11,600 troops stationed at Alliance including the 326th Glider Infantry, the 507th Paratroop Infantry, an airborne artillery unit, an airborne construction unit and several troop carrier groups, Buecker said, along with the base complement or permanent party. Many of the troops trained at Alliance participated in the D-Day invasion of Europe. The primary aircraft flown at Alliance were the C-47, the military version of a DC-3, and military gliders, Hurst said. "The C-47 was the tow plane for the gliders? ' But several other types of aircraft, including B-17 and B-26 bombers used the field for training. Buecker said the architecture of the base was not as historically significant as the purpose. "They were 'Theater of operation-type buildings' meant to be temporary and cost-effective.' Prior to the war, Buecker said, there was no need for training facilities like the Alliance airfield, but once the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, there was an immediate need. The field had to be built quickly. Construction of the site began in the fall of 1942 and was dedicated in August 1943. It was fully functional by the summer of 1943, Buecker said. . . i Sundays 12:00-5:00 Weekdays 9:30-9:00 Saturdays 9:30-5:30 613 Pierce St. Downtown Sioux City "ST T3- New, Exciting Fur Fashions at Fantastic Holiday Prices!
