Two Women Arrested For Stealing Vehicle
(Le Mars) -- Plymouth County Sheriff's Deputies were called to a rural Hinton residence Tuesday evening for a suspicious vehicle that showed up on the property. After deputies arrived, it was determined that the vehicle was stolen from Sioux City. The deputies searched the farm yard and did find two females hiding in the wooded grove area of the residence. They were identified as Nelitta Rose Taylor, age 35 of Sioux City and Shelly Marie Wold, age 33, who gave the same rural Hinton address that the stolen vehicle was located at.
After further investigation into the incident, it is believed that Nelitta Taylor was responsible for the stolen vehicle. Both females were transported to the Plymouth County Jail where Taylor was charged with Possession of a Stolen Vehicle, a Class D Felony. Shelly Wold was arrested on an outstanding warrant from Woodbury County for Probation Violation on an original charge of Operating Without Owners Consent, an aggravated misdemeanor. The sheriff's office was assisted by the Sioux City Police Department. The Sioux City Police Department is expected to have further charges on Taylor.

Children's Museum To Launch Drive November 1st
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - The Children's Museum of Siouxland, which is still under construction in Sioux City, will launch its membership drive Nov. 1.
Museum Director Bob Fitch says the $6.9 million facility is expected to open in early February. Most of the museum's exhibits will focus on agricultural education, renewable energy and consumer science for ages 6-10.
Daily admission for the museum, open Tuesday through Sunday, will be $8. A family membership will cost $85 annually, and will give a family unlimited admissions during the year, plus some special perks.
Fitch also says the museum will be a member of the Association of Children's Museums. That will give Sioux City museum members reciprocal membership at participating museums, which usually means half-price admission.
