Cameron Michael Sobke, 21, pleaded no contest last month to involuntary manslaughter while driving under the influence of alcohol in the June 8 crash that killed Clarence Collingham, 50. On Friday, Shawnee County District Judge Charles Andrews sentenced Sobke to 12 years in prison. The earliest Sobke could be released would be in 10 years and two months. Shortly after the accident, Sobke’s blood-alcohol content was measured at 0.25 percent, more than three times the level considered evidence of intoxication. Sobke was convicted of drunken driving in December 2000 in Doniphan County and in June 2000 in Jackson County. __________________________ Development: Baldwin considering loan for new wastewater plant The Baldwin City Council Monday will consider approving a loan agreement with the state for the construction of a new wastewater treatment plant. The city plans to borrow nearly $3.2 million from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment to pay for the new plant, which will begin construction this fall. The city also received a $400,000 Community Development Block Grant through the state to offset the construction of the plant. The council also will consider approving an agreement with Douglas County for maintaining county roads within the city. The meeting starts at 7:30 p.m. at the Baldwin Public Library, 800 Seventh St. __________________________ Gasoline costs: Pump patrol finds low prices The Journal-World has found a gasoline price as low as $1.35 per gallon at Citgo, 2005 W.
