Rare coin collection sale helps fund money museum

Monday, 18 November 2013 14:44 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A rare St. Louis coin collection that sold for $23 million at a two-day New York City auction began when the collection's 102-year-old owner received an 1859 one-cent piece nine decades ago from his grandfather.

Retired St. Louis lawyer Eric P. Newman only paid about $7,500 for the 1,800 piece collection sold at auction. Auctioneer Jim Halperin says the items represent just one-third of Newman's total collection.

Proceeds from the sale will go toward supporting the nonprofit Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. The society operates the Newman Money Museum, which is part of the Kemper Art Museum at Washington University in St. Louis. Newman is a 1935 law graduate of the school.

 

George Zimmerman arrested again in Florida

Monday, 18 November 2013 14:28 Published in Local News

APOPKA, Fla. (AP) - Officials say George Zimmerman has been arrested in Florida.

A Seminole County Sheriff's Office statement says Zimmerman was arrested Monday afternoon after deputies responded to a disturbance call at a house in Apopka, about 15 miles northwest of Orlando. Zimmerman will be transported and booked into jail.

The statement provided few other details, and it was not immediately known what charges he faced.

Monday's arrest was just the latest legal trouble for the former neighborhood watch volunteer, who was acquitted earlier this year of all charges in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin.

Zimmerman and his estranged wife were involved in a domestic dispute in September. Police said no charges were filed against either of them because of a lack of evidence.

That dispute took place just days after Shellie Zimmerman filed divorce papers.

 

In traffic stop chaos, NM officer fires at van

Monday, 18 November 2013 13:47 Published in National News

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A pair of New Mexico state police officers are under investigation and a mother and her 14-year-old son are facing charges after a routine traffic stop turned to chaos with the teen physically confronting one officer and another firing shots at a minivan carrying children.

Details of the recent stop emerged when KRQE-TV obtained dashboard camera video of the police cruiser that pulled the family of six over for speeding near the northern New Mexico tourist town of Taos.

The Oct. 28 footage showed driver Oriana Farrell disobey the officer's orders and drive off during the stop.

The 39-year-old Tennessee mother was pulled over again and the video shows two of her five children get out of the vehicle to confront the officer.

The mother and teenage son were arrested after a brief chase. She has since been released. It's unclear whether her son remains in custody.

Farrell's attorney didn't immediately return a call.
