A nice article featuring my Uncle Steve who is running for a seat in the MI State House. VoteMarkel.com
This is as close to an episode of COPS as I want to get.
Yesterday, as I was leaving my parent’s tranquil neighborhood in Morgantown, WV I was nearly run off the road by an unknown person in a Honda CRV. My interest was piqued when I noticed he was being closely followed by a police car, lights flashing in full-on car chase mode. Not too far behind where a couple more cruisers in hot pursuit. I found out later they finally caught up with the allegedly stolen vehicle after an extensive chase.
Now I really want some ‘spike strips’ of my own.
Here are some local news reports on the incident:

I have received some pressure lately to join Facebook and/or Twitter. Mostly because people are concerned I’ve fallen off the face of the earth or worse. Instead of bending to peer pressure I thought an update to Stewsnews might be in order.
I cannot promise that I’ll be very regular with my posts; my life is just not that interesting these days. However, I’ll try my best to put something up even if is just the occasional photo.
I am still in the process of making cosmetic changes to the site. For now I am using the vSlider theme from iRui.ac with a slightly modified color scheme. Please bear with me as I try and make improvements. Comments are back up and running with an extra spam filter in place, let’s hope it works!
The new colors are only temporary, in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. Even though I am living in the home of China’s most famous beer I doubt I’ll be able to locate any of the green variety. Oh well.
After leaving Qingdao for my winter vacation last month my first stop was Korea.
Unfortunately, I dropped my camera my second day there so I do not have many photos. Luckily, I was able to get my camera fixed in my next port-of-call, Frankfurt. Due to a somewhat random chain of events my father was able to take some time off and meet me in Europe. We had a great time traveling around doing the museum-church-historic site-museum route.
