    After five weeks, prosecutors Monday rested their disjointed and drawn-out double-murder allegations against U.S. Army Sgt. Brent Burke.

    Witnesses for the state spent more time reciting details of cell phone records, reading aloud evidence package labels and explaining dead-end leads than they spent tying Burke to the shooting deaths of his estranged wife, Tracy, and her former mother-in-law, Karen Comer.

    Knowing Jack

    Reading through this paper over the past few months I have noticed a series of articles from Associated Press reporters who have repeatedly tried to show Dr. Rand Paul and his positions as being extreme.
