Lesser Charges Against Nail Polish Driver Dropped

Lake County prosecutors have thrown out a traffic violation against Lora Hunt, the woman who struck and killed motorcyclist Anita Zaffke (pictured right) with her car while allegedly painting her nails. But that doesn't mean Ms. Hunt is free. Instead, prosecutors are examining more serious criminal charges against her. Michael Waller, Lake County state’s attorney, said, “We’re investigating to determine whether more serious charges can be filed." The reason she's not facing the traffic violation is a simple one: prosecutors worried that if she had pleaded guilty to the violation, they might not have been able to pursue more serious charges due to the double jeopardy statute of facing charges for the same crime twice. Just as they had last month, though, prosecutors are having problems with the vagueness of state law as pertaining to "distracted drivers." Waller said that new charges should be filed against Hunt in the next two to three weeks. [Sun-Times]


Happy Anniversary!! - 7 YEARS :-)

It is our 7 year wedding anniversary!!
I have to work the day of (Sunday the 7th) Therefore, we decided to celebrate on my days off - both Thursday night and all day Friday.
Thursday night was so wonderful. We started the night with a yummy margarita - then went down to the Las Vegas Strip and watched the romantic Bellagio Water Show. Then we went to a late night dinner at Terrible's Hotel and Casino. *(We choose that for ol' times sake)* Years ago when we lived here, we used to go down to the strip and party...ending the night with 1 am Steak n' eggs at Terribles.
Friday was so much fun!! We started with a delicious dinner at Outback, then off to the Las Vegas Strip for the Improv @ Harrah's. It was hilarious! We took a pic in front of the famous "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign and did some shopping of course.
