Frequently over the past THREE YEARS Michael Obremski has called unsuspecting young girls in the Roanoke area, threatening to defile them.
A judge in Roanoke yesterday doubled Obremski's sentence for the string of obscene phone calls that the prosecutor said robbed these girls of their innocence.

A knife from a pair of murder suspects in 19-85 may now be a factor in another case that happened during that same time period.
(Yens Sir-ings) Jens Soering's attorney hoped the knife would exonerate him in the deaths of Derek and Nancy Haysom.
But it came back from the state lab this week withOUT any traces of blood.

Arnold plays Howard, a loving but often absent father who always misses the important events in his son's life.
To appease Jamie--Jake Lloyd--Howard promises to get him the thing he wants most for Christmas, a Turbo Man action figure.
The problem is that Turbo Man is the hot Christmas item and is sold out all over town.
In his search, Howard crosses paths with another desperate father--Sinbad-- as a stereotypical wacko Postal worker.
The two men engage in infantile and spiteful behavior trying to find a Turbo Man.
(-------------)


"Jingle All The Way" gets a "C+". The whole thing is pretty silly. Not to mention violent in a cartoonlike way.
But the conmen Santa scene and some of the climax at a Christmas parade almost make this one worth seeing.
