Journal aims to stoke 
interest in Midwest history
Former police officer who 
robbed bank gets 9 years

OMAHA, Neb. - When T.V. Golden set out to bring a modern irrigation system to parched northwestern Nebraska in the late 19th century, some of the more established settlers objected, fearing that acknowledging the problem would stanch the flow of immigrants who had turned the area into a "young Ireland."

MILWAUKEE - A former Mukwonago police officer who robbed a bank in 2010 while he was still on the force was sentenced this week to nine years in federal prison. Alvin J. Brook, 44, had walked into an M&I Bank, ordered the three employees into the vault area and pointed his department-issued Glock handgun at their heads, prosecutors said.

victims of tragedy, crime
