2Day in History

Today is Sunday, Jan. 23, the 23rd day of 2011. There are 342 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Jan. 23, 1961, word reached the world that the Portuguese ocean liner Santa Maria, with some 600 passengers aboard, had been seized in the Caribbean by two dozen hijackers led by Henrique Galvao, an opponent of Portugal’s leader, Antonio de Oliveira Salazar. (The drama ended on Feb. 2 with the surrender of the hijackers off Brazil.)

Ten years ago: California energy officials eked sufficient power out of tight West Coast electricity supplies to avoid rush hour blackouts as lawmakers scrambled to make longer-term deals to buy power.

Five years ago: Ford Motor Co. said it would cut up to 30,000 jobs and idle 14 facilities in North America by 2012.

Packers bar to roast bear

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A St. Paul sports bar owner is showing his support for the Green Bay Packers in Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears in a very literal way — with a bear roast.

The co-owner of Tiffany Sports Lounge, Blake Montpetit, says he plans to cook a 180-pound black bear Sunday in a pig-roaster over hickory and charcoal. He says his cousin shot it in northern Wisconsin during bear hunting season, which runs in September and October, and then froze it.

Montpetit says he planned to serve the meat to customers, but the state health department rejected the plan because the meat is unprocessed. Instead, customers can take photos with the roasting bear.

After the game, the meat will go his cousin’s party in Somerset, Wis.

Woman accused of sickening roommate with eye drops
OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) — A 22-year-old woman is accused of putting eye drops in her roommate’s water bottle to make her sick.

Luciana Reichel, of Brookfield, is charged with placing foreign objects in edibles, a felony.

According to a Winnebago County criminal complaint, Reichel’s roommate was nauseated and had diarrhea, loss of appetite and fatigue in October. Her doctor couldn’t explain the symptoms.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that Reichel told someone she had spiked her roommate’s water and laughed about it. That person told the victim, and police got involved.

Reichel allegedly said she was inspired by a scene in the movie “Wedding Crashers.”

Reichel could face up to 3 1/2 years in prison if convicted.
