Man allegedly stabbed wife to death, threw her body out in the trash, police say

Broward Sheriff’s Office(SUNRISE, Fla.) — A Florida man allegedly stabbed his wife to death after she refused to let him move back in, and then threw her body out in the trash and left it to be picked up by the garbage truck, according to police.Joseph Traeger, 50, of Sunrise, was arrested Thursday night in connection with the Nov. 28 killing of Jeneen Catanzaro, according to the Sunrise Police.The case began as a missing persons investigation.Traeger called 911 on Dec. 2 to report his wife missing and told police he last saw her the morning of Nov. 29 when he left for work, according to the probable cause affidavit. Catanzaro’s mother told police she had not heard from her daughter since Nov. 27.Traeger told police they were married for 10 years, but were arguing over financial problems and faced “marital problems over the past year due to his heroin addiction,” documents said.Catanzaro had filed two domestic battery reports against her husband this year, the probable cause affidavit said.Traeger’s stepfather told police he had been warning Catanzaro about Traeger’s “violent behavior” for over a month, the probable cause affidavit said. The stepfather told police “he made Jeneen promise to call every morning when she woke up so he would know that she was alive,” the document said.Traeger first told investigators that Catanzaro told him to move out in October, but at her request, he moved back into the house on Nov. 28, documents said. He said he left for work the morning of Nov. 29, and then his wife vanished, the documents said.But police said video surveillance from the neighborhood showed Catanzaro come home on Nov. 27 and never leave the house again, documents said.On Monday, Traeger told investigators that his wife died accidentally; he said he saw her lying in a pool of blood on the kitchen floor, so he assumed she had a seizure and died from hitting her head, the probable cause affidavit said.Traeger told investigators he “panicked” and didn’t want to call police and “be blamed for killing her,” so he put her in trash bags and into the garbage bin for pickup, the probable cause affidavit said.Once the trash was picked up, Traeger said he went to a casino for the rest of the day.On Thursday, Traeger admitted to authorities that the story about finding his wife on the kitchen floor was a lie, the probable cause affidavit said.Traeger said he asked his wife if he could move back in, and when she refused, she grabbed the phone to call 911 because he wouldn’t leave, the probable cause affidavit said.Traeger told police he “snapped” and stabbed her with a knife, the probable cause affidavit said. Her body was later found in a landfill, the Sun-Sentinel reported.Traeger was charged with homicide, making a false report and destroying or tampering with evidence. It was unclear if he had an attorney.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved. read more

NYC’s American Beauty Is Officially Closing

first_imgNew York City late-night life will never be the same, as American Beauty closes its doors. Located in the music hub of Midtown Manhattan, the Grateful Dead-inspired music venue and bar was conveniently just steps away from Madison Square Garden and Penn Station. American Beauty’s motto was Live Music – Craft Beer – Free Pizza, making it a go-to with its enticing deal of free pizza with the purchase of any alcoholic beverage. Beyond the smart marketing, American Beauty has hosted some of the decade’s wildest concerts in NYC jam band history–creating a musical launch pad for up-and-coming bands, special one-off collaborations, and unique tribute sets that can only be found within the walls of New York City.Most notably, the venue utilized their geographic location as an opportunity to further host jam band fans during Phish and Dead & Company runs, creating an irreplaceable hub within the community that comes along with them. During the 2017 Baker’s Dozen run, the venue hosted pre-parties and after-parties nearly every night of the week, ultimately welcoming record crowds. With some of the best rock, jam, funk, bluegrass, and Americana shows that New York City has to offer all year round, the closing of American Beauty marks the end of an era.Read the venue’s full statement from the venue below:It is with a heavy heart that we announce our doors closed after December 31st 2017. Our home at 251 West 30th Street was purchased by Herald Square Properties in 2016, who are renovating the building and renting to new tenants. We’d like to thank our loyal staff, customers and every artist who’s performed on our stages for a magical run.Although it’s sad to say goodbye to our Midtown party factory for now, we are happy for the memories that will live on with those who experienced it. Fare Thee Well.last_img read more

Tennis: Serena’s Plaudits for Rule Change to Protect Mothers

first_imgSerena Williams has praised the introduction of more ranking protection for new mothers on the WTA Tour.Players coming back from childbirth or injury can use their previous ranking to enter 12 tournaments over a three-year period.In addition, they will not face a seeded player in an opening round. “I think it’s great,” said Williams who gave birth to daughter Alexis Olympia in September 2017 and returned to action in February 2018.“Women that are younger can go out there and have kids and not have to worry about it, and not have to wait until the twilight of their years to have children, and I think it’s a really great rule.”Williams, 37, was not seeded at the French Open, her first Grand Slam appearance following her return, but was given a seeding of 25 for Wimbledon, despite being outside the top 32 in the rankings. She is now ranked 16th and will be seeded for next month’s Australian Open.The WTA’s rule change comes after the organisation canvassed the opinions of players earlier in the year.World number one Simona Halep and five-time Grand Slam champion Maria Sharapova had both offered their support to Williams, but others like Petra Kvitova, Victoria Azarenka and Johanna Konta expressed reservations.Williams added: “I think having gone through the experience myself really opened my eyes. Would have I done it sooner had there been different rule changes? I don’t know. But now there is an opportunity, people don’t have to ask that question.”The 23-time Grand Slam champion will be in action against sister Venus in Abu Dhabi on Thursday in her first match since September’s US Open final defeat by Japan’s Naomi Osaka. That match was overshadowed by her outburst at chair umpire Carlos Ramos, whom she called a “liar” and “thief”.She was docked a game for verbal abuse following a point penalty for racquet smashing and a code violation for coaching. She was subsequently fined for her outbursts.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Serena Williamslast_img read more

Growing apples is a family effort at Springhill Fruit Farm

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Like the core of an apple is at the center of the fruit, family is the core of Springhill Fruit Farm owned by Jeff and Laura Burrer of Shiloh. Named for the fresh water river that feeds the 24-acre Richland County orchard, Springhill Fruit Farm was originally acquired by the Burrer family in 1968.“My dad and mom, Kenneth and Mary Jane Burrer, purchased the orchard from a man named Ray Weaver,” Jeff said. “Ray stayed here for a year and helped my dad learn the ins and outs of an orchard. Prior to that, my dad was a small grain farmer.”Kenneth and Mary Jane raised their five children on the orchard. Out of all the children, it was Jeff that showed the most interest in the orchard. He began running the orchard in 1998 and in 2004, Jeff and his wife Laura purchased Springhill Fruit Farm. Since then, it has really been a family effort to grow and maintain the operation. All three of Jeff and Laura’s children worked on the farm growing up and they still continue to help as adults.“It was such a great place to raise our children,” Laura said. “We get to be with each other and spend a lot of time together, especially in the fall. We can’t imagine not doing this.”Originally when Jeff and Laura purchased Springhill Fruit Farm, they thought it would be more of a side job. They both had full time jobs off the farm, but the orchard continued to increase in business every year. Jeff is now retired from the Shelby Fire Department where he worked for 21 years and Laura is working part time as a registered nurse.“We are super fortunate that our kids all have jobs that allow them to still spend their days off here at the farm helping us,” Laura said.Their son, Ben, is also a full time firefighter, their daughter Mandy is an occupational therapy assistant, and their youngest daughter, Megan, is a flight attendant.“We also feel blessed that our kids are so interested in the farm too and that this is a priority to them,” Laura said. “There is a group of employees that return every year that also become a part of the family. We have an Amish family that helps us every year too.”Although the orchard itself cannot grow in acreage, the Burrers have been focusing on maximizing their productivity on what land they do have. Every other year, they plant about 1,500 new trees to replace older trees.“We are planting semi-dwarf, smaller trees so that we can fit 600 to 800 trees in an area instead of just a couple hundred trees. These big trees here are sometimes 30 to 40 years old and are starting to max out on their production so it’s important for us to keep adding new trees to the orchard,” Jeff said. “Listening to our customers is really important — that’s how we decide what types of trees to plant. Our most popular apple is yellow delicious, so we have enough trees to make about 2,000 bushels of yellow delicious apples. We also planted around 50 new plum trees a few years ago that should be in full production in the next year or two.”The Burrer family built a new pole barn in 2010 that houses the retail store, a 2,500-bushel apple cooler and a work area for sorting and grading apples. They currently grow 27 different varieties of apples, five varieties of peaches, three varieties of plums and three varieties of pears. They also grow nectarines, pumpkins, squash and offer sweet cider made from their apples.“This past growing season has been great for us despite some setbacks. We are expecting a 10,000-bushel crop of apples this year,” Jeff said. “We had a lot of rain in the spring so that caused issues for fruit growers across the whole state with having to battle scab and other diseases. We are fortunate to have had limited insect issues this year though.”Burrer uses integrated pest management systems on the orchard. They set insect traps that are checked every week to monitor populations of harmful bugs. They also promote predatory insects, suchBen Burrer is a full-time firefighter who still helps his parents on the orchard.as spiders, in the orchard to limit insecticide sprayings.“A huge problem we had this year was that we got some major hail in the middle of May. It was a wind driven hail so it was falling almost sideways,” Jeff said. “When we started picking our earlier varieties of apples, only 15% to 20% of what we were picking were good apples. When the hail came in May, the fruit were approximately 3/8 inch in diameter, so the small nicks and cuts on the fruit then grew into some giant holes as the apples got bigger.”The later ripening apples are significantly better than the earlier varieties.“As we are getting later into the season, we only had about 50% of the crop being damaged,” he said. “We just had a lot of cider apples this year and second-grade apples.”The Burrers were pleasantly surprised to see that the peaches faired the best.“We had a very large peach crop this year that were not as affected by the hail damage, so that’s pretty exciting,” Jeff said. “We are having a big apple crop too this year, so if you’re going to have major issues like we did this year, it kind of balances itself out. “The Burrer family sells the majority of their produce in their retail store. Less than 25% of their crops are sold wholesale to local grocery stores and farm markets.“Our farm has a lot of return customers every year and they look forward to coming out and getting fresh apples,” Laura said. “We do a lot of our marketing through Facebook and then every year we send out about 400 letters in the mail letting people know our tentative picking dates for all the apple varieties. Really though, most of our customers hear about us from word of mouth, which is nice because it means that people are talking about us and have good things to say.”Springhill Fruit Farm also values giving back to the community.Megan Burrer works in the sales area that features a wide variety of products.“Community is very important to us and we try to help out as many local organizations as possible. We donate a lot of apples and cider to different church organizations and FFA chapters,” Laura said. “We also donate a lot of apples to local food pantries. People really like to get fresh fruit.”The harvest schedule is rigorous and it has to be timely to maximize the quality of the crop.“Yeah it’s definitely fresh,” Jeff said. “Essentially, our crops own us. If an apple variety is ripe and needs picked, I only have a few days to get that type of apple picked. Peaches are even more finicky, sometimes I only have a one- to two-day window to pick them. It requires a lot of work and sometimes I have to cancel plans, but when the fruit is ready, it’s ready.”Springhill Fruit Farm is open from Mid-August through Thanksgiving annually.“I think it’s important for people to support their local orchards when they get the chance,” Jeff said. “Whether you’re in Ashtabula County or Hamilton County, if you have an orchard in your area you should visit them to buy apples and fruit. Ohio is not an easy place to grow fruit in, so the support means a lot to local farmers.”last_img read more

Paintin’ the Town

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Greg Lamp Progressive Farmer ContributorYou might say that murals are part of the DNA in Faulkton, a typical small, rural community in north-central South Dakota. However, the newest and most impressive mural can be seen from miles away. The unlikely canvas is a concrete grain elevator owned by Agtegra Cooperative.But, make no mistake, once you get past the gigantic elevator artwork, you can find other murals around this town of more than 700. Multiple frescoes are tucked away on the side of the quilt shop, inside the town’s carousel, on a walking path downtown and even in the county courthouse.Still, the stopper is the gigantic mural painted last summer by Australian artist Guido Van Helten.“Our local businessman, who we call Aussie Dave, showed us a silo his friend Guido painted in Australia. We were impressed and pitched the mural idea to our arts council—and got a go,” said Troy Hadrick, rancher and president of the volunteer Economic Development Corp. for Faulkton.Van Helten, who happened to be in Florida, was then invited to Faulkton to discuss the mural project and, ultimately, agreed to paint it.A CLEAN CANVAS“He told us the old paint on the elevator wouldn’t hold, so we rounded up three pressure washers and a lift. Guido and our volunteers began blowing off the old paint,” Hadrick explained. “It took us three weeks because we had to patch over the holes and then whitewash the entire elevator before he could start. We used the same high-quality paint that’s used to paint the White House, which should last more than 20 years.”Van Helten started painting last August and finished a month later. Total cost: $75,000. Funding came by way of grants from the South Dakota Farm Bureau, GROW South Dakota, the South Dakota Arts Council and private donations from the community.“We didn’t know what the design would be. He didn’t show us a sketch,” Hadrick said. “He’s an artist, and I guess he had to feel it in his soul.”The mural depicts a young boy on one side, a young girl on the other and the two passing their cowboy hats on the third.“Five little boys in town think it’s them. But, Guido based images off people in general, nothing exact,” Hadrick said.After approval from Agtegra, the project took off. Co-op manager Marvin Hutchinson said painting in the summer was the right time, because it caused little disruption to their daily business.“It’s a big canvas, but we could see a lot of progress every day,” Hutchinson said. “Now, a lot of out-of-state people stop, even buses. Instead of going on I-90, they’re driving through our town to see the mural. While here, they buy gas and go to our local stores. It’s helped us and even our surrounding towns.”To avoid traffic-safety issues, three viewing stations were built to clearly see each side of the mural.MORE PROJECTSVal Helten — who specializes in using grain elevators and silos as canvases — has painted murals around the world, from Dubai to Chernobyl. “Artwork can serve as a means to bring a community together in understanding one another in new or different ways,” he said. “Faulkton is a great introduction for a broader project I’m working on in smaller rural communities in the U.S.”Recently, he painted another elevator in Fort Dodge, Iowa, and has plans for other U.S. locations, including Minnesota and South Carolina.For more images of Faulkton murals and to see a time-lapse video, visit https://youtu.be/…; https://youtu.be/….
