Nothing wrong with asking for directions. A tough lesson learned by this Genius Award Winner.

A St. Paul community college student who threatened to “grab a shotgun” and shoot two women in the face when he couldn’t find the right classroom on the first day of school was placed on probation.

Ramsey County District Judge Nicole Starr also sentenced Paul James Mouton to 360 days in jail, but she stayed the execution of the jail-time so long as the 40-year-old remains law abiding during his two-year probation, court records say.

The sentence, which was imposed on one count of gross-misdemeanor level threats of violence, was handed down Wednesday. He pleaded guilty to the count in November.

Wanting to go on a quick trip, this Flatlander thought outside of the box. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Tommy Mecher stops to gas up in Wisconsin while traveling from Chicago to Bessemer, Michigan, last weekend. Mecher didn't have a snowmobile trailer and didn't want to pay for the extra gas to tow a trailer on the trip. (Photo: Tommy Mecher)

In what might have been the most Wisconsin thing to pop up on Facebook last week, photos and video of someone driving through the state with a snowmobile strapped to the roof of a car created a bit of a stir.

Turns out it was a guy from Illinois who was too cheap to get a trailer and pay for the extra gas to tow his snowmobile up north.
