Peggy and Dwaine Brown were rudely awakened Tuesday night when a car smashed into their home.
KREM 2's Ashley Korslien spent part of Wednesday with the family.
Just before midnight, a man in a stolen car led police on a pursuit, which ended in the brown's front yard.
Glass shards cover the carpet and half the living room wall is boarded up.
Even though their house is in ruins, the browns are staying positive. They say they'll get through it together.
Police say 21 year old, Joseph wilder, was arrested and charged with "attempt to allude," and "theft of a motor vehicle."
Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
