County man attacked by roommates

MOULTRIE, Ga. — A Colquitt County man was injured when he was attacked Sunday by his roommates when he tried to collect the rent they owed.

A Colquitt County Sheriff’s Office deputy was dispatched at 11:50 p.m. to Colquitt Regional Medical Center to investigate an assault.

There, Elmer Villatoro, with the assistance of a translator, told police that the three men, who were all intoxicated, attacked him in the area of their residence in the 300 block of Dogwood Drive.

Villatoro also was intoxicated, police said, and told them that the men who attacked him over the rent also took his cell phone so he could not call for assistance. He got a ride to Regency Village Drive, where he was picked up by an ambulance.

Villatoro had swelling to the face and head and he was bleeding from his mouth, police said.

Due to the head injuries and Villatoro’s impairment from alcohol, police said,

Back to the Future: New DeLorean Cars Coming in 2017

SIGN UP FOR OUR NEWSLETTER

The iconic DeLorean DMC-12 featuring its unmistakable gull-wing doors and stainless steel body will be introduced with a variety of upgrades, according to MLive.

Although best known among younger generations due to the Back to the Future films, DeLoreans are also known for their distinctive design and the troubled history of the company’s founder, John DeLorean.

The current incarnation of the DeLorean Motor Company, which has no connection to John DeLorean’s original company, was founded in order to service the active DeLorean enthusiast market. There are an estimated 6,500 DeLoreans on the road today, out of the total production of 9,000 cars.

The 2017 DeLorean will follow the design of the classic cars, but include a variety of improvements such as a more powerful engine, different wheels with better brakes, and updated electronics. DeLorean’s website includes a production blog providing updates on specifications.

DeLorean is planning to produce a

Salem doctor upgraded to fair condition after PDX airport accident – The Oregonian

Dr. Joel K. HopkinA Salem doctor was upgraded to fair condition today, close to three weeks after his legs were crushed between two vehicles at Portland International Airport.

The incident occurred at 10:30 p.m. April 5 outside the baggage claim area.

Lt. Bob Baxter, a Port of Portland police spokesman, said a 2003 Cadillac DeVille started the chain reaction.

Carolyn Kerr, 79, of Vancouver and her husband, Donald Kerr, 83, came to the airport to pick up a passenger, Baxter said. Carolyn Kerr, who had been driving, stepped out to look for the passenger, and Donald Kerr slid behind the wheel.

“Somehow, as Mr. Kerr moved across the seat, the vehicle was accidentally put into gear and began to move forward,” Baxter said. “He might have stepped on the gas pedal instead of the brake.”

Baxter said he did not anticipate any charges being filed.

Hopkin is a clinical assistant professor in the oral

2017 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD

2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD exterior 004

Chevrolet has announced that the 2017 Silverado 3500HD features a new air intake system that drives cool, dry air into the engine for sustained performance and cooler engine temperatures during difficult driving conditions. The patented intake system underwent extensive testing based on the most challenging real-world driving conditions to ensure competence and performance no matter the weather.

Hood Scoop

The new air intake system is marked by a dramatic hood scoop. Essentially an inlet at the front of the hood, the scoop provides 60 percent of the air to the Duramax diesel engine.

Cooler Air

The air provided to the engine is very close to the outside ambient temperature and much cooler than the air under the hood. Cooler air helps the engine run better under load, especially in conditions where engine and transmission temperatures can rise quickly. Running cooler allows the Duramax diesel to maintain full

Used LF3 Could Be The Perfect Crate Motor For Your Transverse-Engined Project Car

We can hardly wait to get our hands on the incoming Cadillac CT6 sedan, which seems set to replace the slow selling, front-wheel-drive-based XTS. While it’s tough to make a case to keep the soon-to-be-irrelevant Epsilon II-based sedan, we are sure to miss its available twin-turbo 3.6L LF3 V6 in the XTS Vsport model, which is good for a heady 410 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque.

Thankfully, the folks at Preownedengines.com have realized its potential and now you can buy your own used LF3 engine through them, without having to break the bank on a used XTS. (Yes, you can still find the LF3 in the Cadillac CTS Vsport in longitudinal form, but that’ll cost you even more.)

Introduced in 2013, the transverse 60-degree six-cylinder can easily fit into any Epsilon II-based vehicle, like a ninth or tenth-gen Chevrolet Impala or Buick LaCrosse, and you can likely

Portland’s new commuting toy: Robo-style ‘puzzle parking’

We’ve seen the future, and there are no parking valets.

Not human ones anyway.

At a 51-unit green apartment complex at Southeast 20th Avenue and Hawthorne Boulevard, developer Gerding Edlen is showing off the largest residential robo-parking system of its type in the U.S.

Portlanders can expect to see more like it soon, as building owners and managers increasingly turn to automated systems that stack cars, saving money and minimizing the amount of space needed for parking.

“Over time,” development manager Damin Tarlow said today, “people are going to realize this is a wonderful solution to a common problem.”

For decades, the car-park solution in high-density urban areas was to dig deep holes or go multi-story. So 20th century.

Instead, the new system at The 20 on Hawthorne building allows 29 cars to be parked in an area that would usually fit 10.

“Watch this,” Tarlow said as he

Canzano: WSU’s Mike Leach… "They want to ban smoking, but legalize marijuana?" – The Oregonian

Washington State coach Mike Leach said this week that votes in the Northwest that have created the legalization of marijuana havn’t changed the way he does business in Pullman.

He has a bigger issue with the hypocrisy of politics in general.

“We still test. If I catch ’em, I still cut ’em,” Leach said. “Your partying can’t get in the way with playing. I think marijuana does with football. The hangover guy comes back swinging the next day. A lot of times those marijuana guys, the whole energy to go whack somebody the next day isn’t quite there. I think it’s destructive for football. It’s probably helpful for some other stuff…. it’s not good for football. I haven’t had a problem with it.

“We test for it, if you’re dirty, I cut you.”

Leach gave a wide-ranging interview on Wednesday’s radio show. Podcast here.
