    It is time to put those rakes, mowers, clippers and brooms to work getting your place spruced up for spring during the annual city-wide cleanup that starts Monday and continues through Friday.
    During cleanup week, city residents can take unwanted furniture, brush and other junk to the traditional location, about one-quarter of a mile east of Flowserve on East Jefferson Street, from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.
    The same rules apply as in recent years, according to City Manager Marc Maxwell.
    “No household hazardous waste will be accepted, which means no tires, no batteries, no paint and no chemicals,” Maxwell said. “The list of items that will not be accepted includes appliances with refrigerant in them. We will take them, but they have to be certified that the refrigerant has been safely removed.”
    Maxwell said the city would have employees on hand at the collection site to help with unloading when they can, “but be prepared to unload your own trailer.”
    The cleanup is open to non-commercial city residents only. A city utility bill and photo identification will be required to unload.

 
Dike man receives 10 years on federal firearm charges PDF Print E-mail

A 29-year-old Dike man, Kerry Lynn Sanders, was sentenced Wednesday to 10 years in federal prison for firearms violations, according to U.S. Attorney John M Bales.
    Sanders pleaded guilty in December to possession of a stolen firearm.
    According to information presented in federal court, Wood County sheriff's deputies had stopped Sanders for an outstanding arrest warrant in March 2013.
    After the arrest, deputies took inventory of Sanders' vehicle and discovered a 20-gauge pump shotgun behind the driver's seat. Sanders admitted that he “knew he possessed the shotgun without consent of the owner and with the intent to deprive the owner of the shotgun.”
    A federal grand jury indicted Sanders last September for possessing the shotgun after having been previously convicted of multiple felony offenses including theft, attempted evading arrest with a vehicle, possession of a controlled substance and aggravated perjury. Federal law prohibits convicted felons from owning or possessing firearms or ammunition.
    According to U.S. Attorney Bales, this conviction is yet another important outcome from Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a national priority of the United States Department of Justice. PSN is designed as a partnership between federal and local law enforcement to reduce violent crime and gun-related crime through the vigorous enforcement of the criminal provisions of the federal firearms laws.
    The case was investigated by ATF and the Wood County Sheriff's Office and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jim Noble.
