An attorney for former Blue Lake Police Chief David Gundersen is asking a judge to throw out his client's battery and weapons convictions. A jury acquitted Gundersen earlier this year on two dozen counts of spousal rape. Instead, it found him guilty of lesser battery charges for taking nude photos of his wife without permission. He also was convicted of illegally possessing weapons. On Wednesday, his attorney argued in a motion that the verdicts were "contrary to both law and evidence."

Nov. 9, 2012 update: Tesla has responded to several of these issues. Please see below for details. Beyond the all-electric drivetrain on the Tesla Model S, a host of interior gadgets makes the car unique - most notably the giant in-dash screen, for navigating both the Web and the highways. But we've noticed a few electronic gremlins so far in our weeklong test drive.

Every battery needs recharging, and those that operate the Economy Hub are no exception. We'll be taking time off over the next two weeks. Blogging in that period will be sparse, on an as-needed basis only. Normal programming will resume on April 28.

As the world's first mass-produced gasoline-electric car, the Toyota Prius has become the iPod of hybrids. More than 2 million of these automotive icons have been sold since the Prius was introduced in 1997, with mostly minor changes to its aerodynamic profile. But that's about to change with the 2012 Prius v — a larger version that looks as if growth hormones were slipped into the tank. Due in showrooms in October, the v — for "versatility" — lengthens the rear cargo hold on the regular Prius and ratchets up the hatch, opening up far more space in the back 40 without sacrificing too many miles per gallon.
