Rita, when sunlight reflects off clouds, the small diameter of the water droplets scatters the light so it appears white in color. But when the clouds are thick enough, sunlight is completely blocked and the clouds appear dark because we are seeing the shadow of the clouds. When sunlight reflects off of clouds at an angle, such as about sunset only some colors are reflected. That's when clouds can appear blue, red, or orange depending on their thickness.

Patrick Ferron - Green Bay Press-Gazette COURT REPORT Genuine judge, a real conviction By Ed Treleven Wisconsin State Journal A Wyoming follower of a bizarre alternative legal system was convicted Wednesday of serving phony summonses to a Dane County judge and other officials in 2002. Russell Gould, 30, will be sentenced today by Dane County Circuit Judge William Foust, who found Gould guilty of six counts of simulating legal processes on Wednesday after a short bench trial. Gould, of Arapahoe, Wyo., " was charged last year, along -with Janice K. Logan, 47, of Chatham, 111., and Jason Zellmer, 24, of Oconomowoc, with serving documents that purported to be summonses to the "Di-Strict Court of the Unity-States of Our World" to Circuit Judge Moria Krueger, Assistant District Attorney Lana Mades, Clerk of Court Judith Coleman and three Madison police officers. The papers threatened legal action, including prison, if they did not appear before the , court, in which Logan purported to be a judge. A criminal complaint alleged that the three were avenging Zellmer's 2001 disorderly conduct conviction before Krueger. Logan is now serving a two-year prison sentence while Zellmer received a suspended sentence. But Assistant Attorney General Roy Korte told Foust he favored a sentence that keeps . Gould out of prison but assures he is closely supervised to keep him from doing anything similar again. Korte said Gould was involved in similar actions against a federal judge in North Carolina and a circuit court judge in Wyoming. "I strongly believe that Mr. Gould needs some substantial degree of supervision and control," Korte said. He said Gould's family "would like nothing more than for him to release himself from the outside influence of David Wynn-Miller," who invented the Unity States and its legal system. Wynn-Miller's legal system uses an odd twist of the English language, mathematically interpreted, with strict punctuation and syntax rules and hints of maritime law. Korte said in addition to probation, he would recommend no more than three months in the Dane County Jail for Gould in addition to the seven months he has served since his arrest last year. Gould's sentencing hearing will continue today after state-required notification of victims in the case, including Krueger, Mades, Coleman and the police officers, is completed.

Platteville won't push fine for protest sign Associated Press PLATTEVILLE City officials won't block a motion to dismiss a disorderly conduct citation against a man who displayed a protest sign reading , "F U G W" as President Bush's motorcade passed by. Andrea Baker, an attorney for Frank Van den Bosch of r Montfort, said City Attorney Brian McGraw agreed Wednesday not to oppose her motion. The final decision will be up to Grant County Circuit Judge Michael Kirchman. Baker argued that the $243 citation violated Van den Bosch's right to free speech. "It's good that the city attor ney at least understands the law if the police don't," Van den Bosch said. According to Baker's motion, the incident happened as Van den Bosch was standing with his sign along a street in Platteville waiting for Bush's motorcade to pass May 7. Bush made campaign stops in La Crosse and Prairie du Chien that day. r (Sea fu w I Get $7 off your next Valvoline Instant Oil Change when you place an ad in Drive during the month of May.
