A Roscommon woman is still fighting to get her dog back after it was seized by animal control.

As part of the deal offered, Hodges would have to pay a fine of about $2,500. Animal control seized Sadie after she wandered off her property. Animal control then got surgery on the dog's foot and wanted Hodges to pay for it. Hodges says that she never authorized the surgery and was already treating the dog at home, following orders from her veterinarian. Hodges says that two different veterinarians gave her the choice to not have surgery on Sadie and to let it heal with pain medication. Sadie was taken in late June and Hodges says she has not been allowed to see her. The trial is set to begin December 7th.

a Coleman man who crashed into a buggy, killing a pregnant Amish woman while he had THC in his system, won't be jailed. According to M-Live, yesterday afternoon Kevin Toner, 58, appeared before Gladwin County Circuit Judge Roy Mienk for sentencing. Though sentencing guidelines ranged from 19 to 38 months behind bars, Mienk gave him a one-year delayed sentence, meaning that in the interim he is to be monitored by Gladwin County's probation department. Toner in August pleaded guilty to one count of involuntary manslaughter in exchange for prosecutors' dismissal of operating a motor vehicle under the influence causing death. If he complies with the terms of his delayed sentence — no drugs, no alcohol, and completes an outpatient substance abuse program — he'll be allowed to withdraw his plea and plead to a lesser offense. Toner must also pay $1,378 in court fines and costs.

Mothership Rosetta lands on comet to complete mission
The mission is coming to an end as a result of the comet and the spacecraft’s ever-increasing distance from the Sun and Earth. It is heading out towards the orbit of Jupiter, resulting in significantly-reduced solar power to operate the craft and its instruments, and a reduction in bandwidth available to downlink scientific data. After consultation with Rosetta’s science team, it was decided that Rosetta would follow its lander Philae down onto the comet. The final hours of descent will enable Rosetta to make many once-in-a-lifetime measurements, including very-high-resolution imaging, boosting Rosetta’s science return with precious close-up data achievable only through such a unique conclusion.

Streaming Technical: The audio stream is broadcast in monophonically direct from our AM modulation monitor, you are hearing the same signal that is broadcast over the air (audio processing included). If you have an exceptionally good AM receiver with full 10kHz IF bandwidth, you will experience a hi-fidelity frequency response closely approximating that of the streaming service. WIOS's music is digitally "cleaned" and equalized to provide removal of most analog noise, clicks and pops along with crisper highs and deeper lows on older recordings where that range had been previously restricted.
