Blessings on ya pal, Chaz Reply charles towne Don my friend, some of my favorite people are bears, but on the other side of that coin bears can be mighty unpredictable. But, on the other side of that coin people can be pretty unpredictable too! Oy vay, I am confused. Bless you pal, Chaz Reply January 7, 2019 at 5:17 pm Reply EJ, that poor soul had to be in his seventies and was likely a very lonely man. Dementia is on the increase worldwide. I thank Papa God that my darling is not mean. The memory loss is there but she is sweet. The bible tells us that if “we would have friends we must show ourselves friendly.” That is a pretty simple principle but most people are so defensive and ready to take offense at the least little excuse. Dear Papa God, please help us to treat others with love and compassion, the way we want to be treated! Blessings on you and your family, Chaz January 10, 2019 at 8:20 am January 6, 2019 at 11:09 am Inspiration  By Charles Towne                                                                                                                                                  It can be downright dangerous being around some folks these days, in fact, compared to some people, bears are very sweet, even-tempered, and sociable folks.I was in the local Ace hardware store the other day and as I walked down an aisle I stopped and moved aside to allow this stranger to pass.  And, with a scowl on his face, pass he did.  He bulled into me, none too gently shoving me aside as he did so, and brandishing his cane as if to hit me, he exclaimed, “Git the h–l out of my way, you… go on, git!”Now, as you can imagine my first reaction was surprise, after all, he darned near knocked me down, and in my own defense, I must say that it is not every day I am attacked by a blustering, bellicose and most belligerent rock troll!  And as you can imagine, my surprise turned to alarm as he brandished that heavy wooden walking stick in my face!Hey, I was in the hardware store to get a replacement for a left-handed farfanoodle for my conglammerated glammersnit that had klunked when it should have klinked, not to have some rock troll accost me and threaten to pulverize my noodle with his shillelagh!Luckily, the “gentleman” in question hustled past without smiting me, and as he went on his way he was mumbling something uncomplimentary about my ancestry.  This certainly surprised me because he obviously had information about my paternal stock that I was unaware of.After my encounter with Mr. Knee Andurthall a very nice Asian gent, having witnessed the unfortunate event, approached me, and with great concern asked, “You o.k. sir?”  I assured him that I was indeed, “o.k.” to which, while shaking his head, he commented, “That man clazy!”  And I most certainly had to agree, that man was definitely “clazy.”.In all of my years following and photographing bears, I have been bluff charged, cussed at, threatened, and run over, by them, but one might say that is what one would expect from bears, after all, they are bears.Yep, you can give me a bear any day.AN OUTDOORSMAN’S PRAYER Dear lord, please protect each of us from “clazy” people.  Help us to always treat others with kindness, mercy, patience and consideration.  Teach us father, reveal to us your will in all things that we may be a blessing, and never a curse to the others in your family.  Thank you father, thank you and praise you, In Jesus’ most Holy name I ask it, Amen.

Oh yes, how are the english lessons coming? Many blessings on you and yours, Chaz January 6, 2019 at 1:14 pm Reply January 11, 2019 at 8:20 am charles towne I have been discovering over time that when folks get upset and nasty for small offenses or none at all there is something besides my small infraction that is really at the root. Sometimes, like in your story, there’s no opportunity to discover what it is, but the question, “now what is really bothering you?” often opens the door for communication. In either case, these folks are in turmoil and quite in need of our prayers. charles towne Chaz my dear friend, everyone knows that when you need another left-handed farfanoodle for a conglammerated glammersnit, you go to a Tractor Supply store and NOT to a neighborhood Ace Hardware!Also, a shillelagh is an awsome cudgelusually of gnarled briarwood that the British government has classified as a deadly weapon! So count your guardian angel as being “on the job!” Further, I may be a bit prejudiced but not all people who use a cane are that contrary, just some of us! Last, I am forced by experience to agree with you, a bear or indeed any animal, is all too often to be preferred over human beings! A great story and a good lesson to start off the new year!

As “a friend” stated, everyone has a bad day once in a while, but the majority of us are courteous enough not to find it necessary to share our foul mood with others. On a side note, you should have called me as I have a spare left-handed farfanoodle for a conglammerated glammersnit I no longer need… Reply Dear NH, I guess I was feeling sorry for myself. You are so right. The world would be a better place if we were praying for each other wouldn’t it? Chaz Dimitri, my dear Russian friend, I am commenting on your comment about babushkas because your comment about babushkas is worthy of a comment, and not to comment about your comment about my comment about babushkas would, in its own right be a comment, therefore I am commenting, not about babushkas but on your comment about my comment about babushkas… I am so confused? Chaz It’s always catches us off guard when someone is unexpectedly rude or hostile. It’s good that you didn’t react or respond to him in like fashion. I find it sweet that the other man came up to you afterwards to check on you. It often seems to work that way. Cheers! WOW!! Bears and people…..yikes!Yes, I agree that many peopleact like bears, unfortunately.So many people are hurt from things that have happened to them throughout their life.Hurt people… hurt people.I agree with you that we must remember to pray, pray, praybecause we really have no idea what some people, or bears, are going through. charles towne Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 last_img read more

The selected charities will share in a total fund of €812,000 to continue their essential work with children and young people.Within the group of 16 charities, there is wide range of organisations of varying sizes making a significant impact already. Some examples of the programmes being funded are:— OPEN (One Parent Exchange Network), an organisation dedicated to offering support to lone parents throughout the country.— The Peter McVerry Trust which is committed to reducing the effects of homelessness, drug misuse and social disadvantage.Some smaller benefiting organisations such as Meath based charity ‘Third Age Foundation’ will receive funding to support their ‘Failte Isteach’ programme, a homework club which utilises the skills and experience of older people in the community to assist New Irish adults and children with the English language and cultural transition.The funding was announced in May 2007, and Vodafone Ireland Foundation was inundated with applications for available grants.

Demands to fire SF police chief reach crescendo – he’s out

first_imgUpdate: Chief Suhr was fired on 5/19 after the SFPD killing of another Black person that morning, a 27 year old woman.May 16 – As the Frisco 5 ended their 17-day hunger strike, which had the sole demand to fire San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr, the campaign morphed into the Frisco 500. The Frisco 500 took over City Hall on May 6, when 33 people were arrested. This was followed by a 12-hour picket, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., around City Hall on May 9, with hundreds participating.That evening, an independent three-judge “Blue Ribbon Panel on Transparency, Accountability, and Fairness in Law Enforcement” announced scathing preliminary findings after a year-long study of the San Francisco Police Department. The panel was launched by San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon after last year’s revelations of racist text messages among SFPD officers. The panel’s findings were coupled with publication of more accusations of racist slurs by SFPD officers.All this led to declarations by five San Francisco Board of Supervisors on May 11 that San Francisco needed a new police chief. All sides are closing in on Chief Suhr with a resounding crescendo!Cops’ racist practices revealedSignificant findings in the panel’s draft release of May 9 to the San Francisco Examiner include:“The department engages in controversial ‘stop and frisk’ practices and there is a disparity when it comes to black and Latino citizens.”“Use of force practices and policing, which are undergoing major mandated changes, which include a federal review, following the Dec. 2, 2015, killing of Mario Woods, were found to be in dire need of updating. What’s more, the department’s internal data collection on use of force incidents is done in a way that discourages auditing and review from outside parties.”“There is no transparency in the disciplinary process … the disciplinary guidelines are outdated and there is little tracking of the outcome of discipline.”Investigations into police misconduct allegations by the department’s watchdog, the Office of Citizen Complaints, “rarely result in disciplinary consequences, and when they do, the discipline imposed is almost always mild.”Additional findings were reported during a panel presentation that evening (48hills.org, May 9):“Overall, the report shows, the department allows rogue officers to operate with impunity and there’s a profound lack of accountability at all levels.”“We find that the SFPD is, in fact, influenced by the [Police Officers Association] and the POA’s influence has been an impediment to open dialogue and sustained reforms.”Michelle Park Chiu, of the office of Morgan Lewis, said, “[The SFPD] ‘does not collect enough data to see if the use of force disproportionately impacts minority populations.’”“The discipline imposed by the chief of police is almost always mild, mostly just admonishment. There has not been one sustained complaint sent to the Police Commission (which can impose discipline of more than 10 days’ suspension) since 2012.”SF officials called for Suhr’s removalThe SFPD released details about another officer accused of racial slurs, which the Examiner reported on May 9. “Sgt. Lawrence Kempinski, a 17-year veteran who most recently worked in the Bayview Station, allegedly made the remarks in front of other officers who reported the incident. Kempinski allegedly said he only transferred to the station to ‘kill n—-rs,’ according to a source in the department.”This is on top of a Los Angeles Times report on May 7 that Gascon has thus far “identified 3,000 criminal cases that could have been affected by perceived bias by 14 officers” because of revelations of their racist, sexist and homophobic texts. “The texts,” the Times reported on April 3, “were exposed in a court filing during the trial of former SFPD Officer Ian Furminger, who was convicted and sentenced to 41 months in prison for corruption pending an appeal.”On May 11, Suhr’s dominoes were falling as four of 11 San Francisco supervisors, one by one, publicly announced their support for a new police chief. Supervisor Jane Kim called for a new police chief just before noon, reported the Examiner. Supervisors Dave Campos, John Avalos and Jane Kim called for Suhr to step down, reported 48hills.org at 3:30 pm. Finally, less than half an hour later, Supervisor Eric Mar joined the call for Suhr to resign.The community continues to pressure for Suhr’s removal. A press conference was held by the Frisco 5 on May 12, with three of the four hunger strikers. (Cristina Gutierrez, still recovering from fasting, was unable to attend.) A “Black and Brown Community Meeting” was held on May 14 to “unite and move forward with our goals for justice.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Bimonthly decides to suspend publication after receiving threats

The newspaper has had problems ever since it ran an opinion piece in mid-July that called President Paul Kagame a “sociopath.”“Ishema’s decision reflects the unease that independent publications often feel in Rwanda,” Reporters Without Borders said. “After being taken to task by the pro-government High Media Council, the newspaper apologized and its publisher was sanctioned. He has nonetheless continued to be the target of threats and a smear campaign and this has prompted him to temporarily suspend operations.”Gakire quickly apologized after the High Media Council, the state-run media regulatory body, ruled that the reference to the president as a “sociopath” was libellous. The newspaper’s editor, Didas Niyifasha, resigned claiming the article was published without his knowledge. At the same time, the Forum of Private Newspapers suspended Gakire for six months as a member.Gakire then lost no time in bringing out a special issue of Ishema with the word Imbabazi (Sorry) on the cover and virtually nothing inside but old articles praising the president which the newspaper had published in the past.The authorities and pro-government journalists hailed Ishema’s reaction and praised media self-regulation.But a member of the public complained to the High Media Council a few days later claiming he had been wronged by the newspaper. Then Ancilla Mukarubuga, a woman living in the Kigali district of Gasabo, said she had been shocked by articles published in Ishema and, in her neighbourhood, collected 1,500 signatures to a petition for sanctions against the newspaper. Finally, Gakire reported receiving serious threats in recent days.A debate about media self-regulation is meanwhile under way in Rwanda and a new media law is being discussed in parliament. It would transfer responsibility for media regulation from the High Media Council to a panel of journalists. As first step to creating this self-regulatory body, Rwanda’s journalists have just adopted a new code of professional conduct.

first_img WhatsApp Previous county street sign design. Drivers traveling outside of city limits may notice that the color of some street signage has shifted from red to white. Ector County street signs are getting a new look in order to comply with the Texas Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices. The transition swaps red street signs with white lettering for signs with a white background and black lettering. Highways and Streets Director Evans Kessey said there are 4,868 signs in Ector County that will need to be replaced at a cost of about $1.2 million to increase public safety and comply with state requirements. He said this change is needed because the county has been out of compliance since 2003 and failure to adhere to signage standards could leave the county liable in situations where a crash occurs that could be attributed to inadequate, inappropriate or noncompliant traffic control devices. The TMUTCD states that the only acceptable alternative background colors for street signs other than the normal guide sign color of green are blue, brown or white. Major arterial roadways are the first areas in the county to receive the redesigned street signage and other areas will soon follow. The Ector County Highways and Streets Department has installed fewer than 200 signs since February at various intersections of arterial roads in the county. Two areas that have already been completed are Yukon Road from West Loop 338 to Grandview Avenue as well as Farm-to-Market Road 1936 from Interstate 20 to State Highway 302. After arterial roadways are addressed, the next phase will focus on residential areas of the county. Precinct 2 and Precinct 3 are expected to receive new sign installation first. Kessey said resources and staff are limited in his department so he is prioritizing areas that will need fewer signs replaced overall. “Part of Precinct 2 and Precinct 3 are in the city limits so we will do those faster as compared to Precinct 4 and Precinct 1,” he said. The majority of the 585 miles of roadway in the county is in Precinct 1 and Kessey said that factors into how long replacing signage will take. He said the department plans to complete the transition for all of Ector County by 2021. “One to two years is what we’re looking at, but the goal is to finish faster,” he said.

A Byrd and a pear tree

And, those who know Junior Byrd will know that it’s worth hanging around to hear.These days, as in most all August days for the last 42 years, Byrd is talking pears.He would wager his barber’s clippers that his pear tree, the one he “inherited” is one of the most prolific pear trees “anywhere.” Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Published 9:15 pm Wednesday, August 25, 2010 Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Email the author By Jaine Treadwell A Byrd and a pear tree Book Nook to reopen Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are…center_img Latest Stories Next Up“Just look. There’s a ton of pears, but ….”The “but” is that tons of pears have already been picked by folks from all around Troy and down as far as Brundidge.“They come from all over to get pears,” Byrd said. “But …” Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration There are plenty of pears on the ground for the birds and bees and any other living creatures that have a taste for the late summer fruit.“What’s so unusual about this pear tree is that it’s been here for … how many years, I don’t know … but I do know that the tree was here when I came and that was 42 years ago,” Byrd said. “How many years before that, I don’t know. But … I do know that it has not been watered in 42 years and, in all that time, it’s not had a bit of fertilizer put on it. And every year, it’s had a bumper crop of pears.”For at least 42 years, anybody who has wanted a pear to gnaw or a bushel to can has stopped by, unannounced and without feeling a need to ask, and gathered what they wanted or needed.“The tree was planted by the daughter of a Greek couple that moved here from New York,” Byrd said. “They owned Mary’s Café across from Synco Drugs and some of their kinfolks owned the Riverside Café .. but that doesn’t have anything to do with the pear tree except that the daughter planted it.” Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

They’re small and shaped more like an apple and they are good any way you want to fix them. Women like them because, when they are canned, they turn white, solid white. They look pretty in the jars and, like I said, they are some of the best pears you can eat.”Times have changed or maybe people just have forgotten or have never known what a treat a fresh picked pear can be. Anyway, it seems that today, there are more pears than people to eat them.“People still stop by … but not as much as they used to,” Byrd said as he surveyed the pears that have dropped from the tree.“The tree just can’t hold them all,” he said.“Has to let go … but they won’t go to waste. Something will come along and eat them.”And those who want to sample the goodness of the late summer fruit are invited to stop by and pick what they want. Nothing much is free anymore but Byrd’s pears are and you don’t even have to ask.last_img read more
