Yahoo! National News - Fri, 01/29/2016 - 03:16

Former U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Dennis Hastert is surrounded by officers as he leaves federal court after pleading not guilty to federal charges of trying to hide large cash transactions and lying to the FBI in ChicagoBy Mary Wisniewski CHICAGO (Reuters) - A federal judge on Thursday postponed until April the sentencing date for Dennis Hastert, convicted last year of a financial crime, because the former U.S. House speaker was still recovering from a stroke and life-threatening infection. Hastert pleaded guilty in October to a federal charge of "structuring" - evading bank reporting rules by withdrawing large amounts of cash in smaller increments - in a hush-money case stemming from allegations of sexual misconduct. The 74-year-old, once one of the country's most powerful politicians, went to the hospital in early November after a fall, his attorney, John Gallo, told U.S. District Judge Thomas Durkin.

The One and Only Lyle Lovett on eTown – 4.21.1996

E-Town - Fri, 01/29/2016 - 03:00

Over the years, we here at eTown have had the pleasure of welcoming the one and only Lyle Lovett to the eTown stage 4 times. One of which was the 2nd show that we ever produced all the way back in 1991!

Today we were digging into the ??eTown Archive? and stumbled upon this portrait of Lyle from his second visit to eTown back in April of 1996!

After sharing the picture around our offices, we all felt it was necessary to unearth an excerpt from that show for all of you eTowners out there! So kick back, relax and enjoy this performance from the legend himself.

The post The One and Only Lyle Lovett on eTown – 4.21.1996 appeared first on eTown.
