WADE CURTIS MILLER PLEADED GUILTY THURSDAY BEFORE DISTRICT JUDGE CATHERINE WILKING TO ONE COUNT OF UNLAWFUL ENTRY. THE CHARGE, A FELONY, CARRIES A MAXIMUM PENALTY OF 10 YEARS IN PRISON AND A $10,000 FINE.

UNDER AN AGREEMENT WITH PROSECUTORS, MILLER WILL LIKELY BE SENTENCED TO THREE YEARS OF PROBATION WITH AN UNDERLYING, SUSPENDED PRISON SENTENCE OF THREE TO FIVE YEARS.

ON NOV. 26, MILLER ALLEGEDLY WENT OVER TO THE VICTIM'S HOUSE AND URINATED IN THE VICTIM'S GENERATOR. AN ARGUMENT ENSUED, AND THE VICTIM THEN WENT BACK INSIDE HIS HOUSE.

MILLER REPORTEDLY PICKED UP A WOODEN POST AND USED IT TO BREAK THE VICTIM'S SLIDING GLASS DOOR. HE THEN ENTERED THE VICTIM'S HOME AND HIT THE VICTIM WITH THE POST.

MILLER REMAINS FREE ON BOND PENDING SENTENCING.

AS WE HEAD INTO THE SUMMER MONTHS, WE USUALLY SEE GASOLINE PRICES HEADIING UPWARD.

BUT, GIVEN ALL THE TURMOIL IN THE MIDDLE EAST WITH ISRAEL AND IRAN, WE USUALLY EXPECT OIL PRICES TO SKYROCKET.

BUT, WITH VACATION SEASON AHEAD, DEMAND, AND PRICES WILL SURELY GO UP.
