Crime: Ottawa credit union robbed at gunpoint Friday morning A man armed with a handgun robbed an Ottawa credit union Friday morning. The suspect described as a middle-aged white man, wearing a dark blue jacket, a blue ball cap with an emblem on the front and eyeglasses at 9:30 a.m. entered Midwest Regional Credit Union, 1602 S.

Steve Williams, the current secretary, is up for a job with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in the Bush administration. His confirmation is pending before Congress. Hayden served as governor from 1987 to 1991. He was then defeated by Joan Finney and then went to work in Washington, D.C. __________________________ America responds: Officials discuss potential response to terrorism Local officials will have two opportunities next week to discuss how Douglas County would respond to terrorist attacks.
