KARYANNA NOT IN JAIL RELEASED WITH GPS MONITORING

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 20 Nov 2014 – Karyanna Cox is not in police custody; the young woman, who allegedly attacked someone with a dangerous weapon according to the St Lucie County Sheriff’s office was since November 13th; last week Thursday released on her own reconnaissance or ROR(ed) with the conditions being that she would have to be monitored by GPS and must have no contact with the so called victim in the matter. Many were not happy about reporting of the story on the arrest of Karyanna Cox, a graphic design student at Indian River State College and some are expressing as much as the shocking case came to light late yesterday. Nonetheless, Magnetic Media has been in touch with the Port St Lucie County Courthouse where it is confirmed that 19 year old Karyanna was held for one night after being arrested on November 12th for a felony. We also learned that because the court has not yet filed the information including what precisely Karyanna will be charged with, there is no new court date as yet. While some are furious, others are calling for increased prayers for the country’s youth and its people as a barrage of unfortunate stories about TCI women living abroad have surfaced in the past four months. Two involved women likely coping with Postpartum Depression; one taking her own life after allegedly hurting her three-month old son, while the other is charged with the murder of her six-year old daughter; now Karyanna, a promising graduate of Clement Howell High who is an American citizen and who yesterday marked her 19th birthday is soon to be arraigned. Cox is the daughter of GSS Deputy Secretary Russell Cox; her mother, Kay Cox, is a teacher at Ianthe Pratt Primary.

Driver who killed teenage boy in Tierrasanta hitandrun sentenced to 4 years

first_img Posted: July 20, 2017 KUSI Newsroom, KUSI Newsroom SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A 20-year-old woman who had been drinking when she struck and killed a teenage boy in Tierrasanta, then fled the scene, has been sentenced to four years in state prison.Jessica Medsker pleaded guilty to hit-and-run in the March 9 death of 16-year-old Alex Funk. The defendant — who has no prior record — faces anywhere from probation to four years in prison. The conviction is considered a “wobbler,” meaning a judge could reduce it to a misdemeanor at the court’s discretion, said Deputy District Attorney Andrew Aguilar.Aguilar said 16-year-old Alex Funk and a friend were walking southbound in the fast lane of the 5700 block of Santo Road with their backs toward traffic around midnight on March 9. The victim’s friend managed to jump onto a median to avoid being hit. Funk’s family had moved to San Diego seven months before the accident, relatives said. A motorcyclist who was following Medsker estimated she was driving 60 mph in a 45-mph zone when her car struck the teen, according to Aguilar. Medsker was arrested six days later, about a mile from the stretch of road where the victim died. The defendant admitted taking sips from her boyfriend’s alcoholic drink at a La Jolla restaurant earlier in the evening, the prosecutor said.  July 20, 2017 Driver who killed teenage boy in Tierrasanta hit-and-run sentenced to 4 years in state prison Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitterlast_img read more

Bits Pieces Man to begin yearlong 12000mile bike trip

first_imgDavid Jones is getting ready to roll. And everyone is invited to see him off.At 10 a.m. Saturday, Jones will begin a 12,000-mile, clockwise bicycle journey around the edges of the nation. He’ll depart from homeless shelter Share House, 1115 E. 13th St., in downtown Vancouver.That’s because Share, Vancouver’s chief provider of services and shelter to the hungry and homeless, is the point of his journey. Jones, a former Share board member, means to raise money for the cause as he pedals. You can help by visiting his website, Rolling Across America, where it’s possible to donate to Share as well as toward Jones’ own expenses. Or just visit Share.Those expenses include video equipment — because Jones plans to conduct interviews and post them online. “I want to reveal in a very personal way what Americans think and feel about their country,” he says on his website. “I’ll be conducting interviews over these 12,000 miles and asking questions about each individual’s American experience, what they think and feel. And what are their challenges and solutions.” He’s even recruited Lisa Cicala, a Portland filmmaker and vice president of the Oregon Media Production Association, to rework his video footage into a feature documentary film.Vancouver Mayor Tim Leavitt will stop by Share House to wish Jones luck. Members of the Vancouver Bicycle Club and the Share board of directors will join Jones for the first few miles as he heads out of town — across the I-5 bridge and east along Marine Drive. Day one’s target: Government Camp. After that, he figures, there’ll just be a year to go.— Scott HewittBits ’n’ Pieces appears Fridays and Saturdays.

Blame game intensifies as big cuts loom

first_imgHow budget cuts could affect Washington stateThe White House compiled the numbers from federal agencies and its own budget office. The numbers reflect the impact of the cuts this year. Unless Congress acts by Friday, $85 billion in cuts are set to take effect from March-September.As to whether states could move money around to cover shortfalls, the White House said that depends on state budget structures and the specific programs. The White House did not have a list of which states or programs might have flexibility.Some examples of programs that could be cut in Washington state:EDUCATION:$11.6 million for primary and secondary education, putting 160 teacher and aide jobs at risk. In addition, about 50 fewer schools would receive funding.$11.3 million for education of children with disabilities, jeopardizing the jobs of 140 teachers, aides and staff.Around 440 fewer low-income students in Washington would receive aid to help them finance the costs of college.About 1,000 children would be cut from Head Start and Early Head Start services.ENVIRONMENT:$3.3 million to help ensure clean water and air, and prevent pollution from pesticides and hazardous waste.In addition, Washington could lose $924,000 in grants for fish and wildlife protection.MILITARY:Furloughs for 29,000 civilian Department of Defense workers would reduce gross pay by $173.4 million.Army base operation funding would be cut $124 million.POLICE:About $271,000 in grants that support law enforcement, courts, crime prevention and education, corrections and community corrections, drug treatment and enforcement, and crime victim and witness initiatives.EMPLOYMENT:$661,000 for job search assistance, referral and placement.CHILD CARE:Up to 800 disadvantaged and poor children could lose access to child care.VACCINES:2,850 fewer children will receive vaccines.DOMESTIC VIOLENCE:$143,000 for providing services to victims of domestic violence.SENIORS:$1 million for providing meals to seniors.PUBLIC HEALTH:$1.7 million in grants to prevent and treat substance abuse.$642,000 to help respond to public health threats including infectious diseases, natural disasters, and biological, chemical, nuclear or radiological events.WASHINGTON — The White House and Republicans kept up the unrelenting mudslinging Sunday over who’s to blame for roundly condemned budget cuts set to take effect at week’s end, with the administration detailing the potential fallout in each state and governors worrying about the mess.But as leaders rushed past each other to decry the potentially devastating and seemingly inevitable cuts, they also criticized their counterparts for their roles in introducing, implementing and obstructing the $85 billion budget mechanism that could affect everything from commercial flights to classrooms to meat inspections. The GOP’s leading line of criticism hinged on blaming Obama’s aides for introducing the budget trigger in the first place, while the administration’s allies were determined to illustrate the consequences of the cuts as the product of Republican stubbornness.last_img read more

Benton selection fuels anger among public

While commissioners meet in the evening on the first Tuesday of every month, on other Tuesdays they meet at 10 a.m. If there’s a fifth Tuesday in a month, they do not meet.Wednesday evening, Vancouver resident Elizabeth Pfenning did something she’d never done in 28 years as a registered voter.She contacted her county commissioners, writing in an email that she was “outraged” Republican commissioners Tom Mielke and David Madore “would so blatantly disregard the hiring process” in naming state Sen. Don Benton, R-Vancouver, as the county’s director of environmental services.“If there is urgency to the hiring for this position, then streamline the process for one time only,” she wrote in part. “Interview candidates and let their qualifications stand for themselves. Don’t rewrite the job description to tailor it to a person who is clearly unqualified for the position as defined. That exemplifies political cronyism, and our county deserves better than that.”Pfenning, a teacher/librarian at Hearthwood Elementary School, said Thursday she sent the email after complaining about the commissioners’ decision to her 19-year-old son. Her son asked her what she was going to do, and she answered she didn’t know what she could do.last_img read more

Jean Stapleton TVs Edith Bunker dies at 90

first_imgNEW YORK — Jean Stapleton, the stage-trained character actress who played Archie Bunker’s far better half, the sweetly naive Edith, in TV’s groundbreaking 1970s comedy “All in the Family,” has died. She was 90.Stapleton died Friday of natural causes at her New York City home surrounded by friends and family, her son, John Putch, said Saturday.Little known to the public before “All In the Family,” she co-starred with Carroll O’Connor in the top-rated CBS sitcom about an unrepentant bigot, the wife he churlishly but fondly called “Dingbat,” their daughter Gloria (Sally Struthers) and liberal son-in-law Mike, aka Meathead (Rob Reiner).Stapleton received eight Emmy nominations and won three times during her eight-year tenure with “All in the Family.” Produced by Norman Lear, the series broke through the timidity of U.S. TV with social and political jabs and ranked as the No. 1-rated program for an unprecedented five years in a row. Lear would go on to create a run of socially-conscious sitcoms.Stapleton also earned Emmy nominations for playing Eleanor Roosevelt in the 1982 film “Eleanor, First Lady of the World” and for a guest appearance in 1995 on “Grace Under Fire.”Her big-screen films included a pair directed by Nora Ephron: the 1998 Tom Hanks-Meg Ryan romance “You’ve Got Mail” and 1996’s “Michael” starring John Travolta. She also turned down the chance to star in another popular sitcom, “Murder, She Wrote,” which became a showcase for Angela Lansbury.last_img read more

New Seasons Market roof now home to bee colonies

first_imgAn estimated 50,000 or more bumblebees, as well as some honeybees and ladybugs, were discovered dead June 15 at a Wilsonville, Ore., shopping center. After an investigation into the deaths — which occurred just two days before the start of National Pollinator Week — a Xerces Society specialist learned trees in the parking lot had been sprayed with a pesticide containing dinotefuran in order to control aphids.Hundreds of dead bumblebees were also found on June 24 in Hillsboro, Ore., in a clump under a tree sprayed with Safari, the same brand used in Wilsonville.On June 27, the Oregon Department of Agriculture temporarily restricted the use of 18 neonicotinoid pesticide products that contain dinotefuran while it continues to look into the mass deaths.The Washington State Department of Agriculture denied a request on June 6 from Thurston County to stop the use of neonicotinoid pesticides on ornamental plants. WSDA Director Bud Hover told Thurston County commissioners in a letter that he’ll work to sponsor a study to evaluate potential risks of such chemicals.“Because it has not been established that this use is a significant contributor to the decline of honeybee colonies in Thurston County or elsewhere in the state, the proposed use restrictions are not appropriate at this time,” Hover wrote. “But I can assure you that your petition has caught my attention and I will be watching this issue closely.”last_img read more

Special enrollment offers alternative to COBRA

first_imgWashington Healthplanfinder is offering a limited special enrollment period for those who are currently covered by COBRA but would rather purchase a plan through the state-based insurance exchange.People who purchase plans through the exchange may be eligible to receive tax credits to help cover the cost of insurance coverage — something not available with COBRA. COBRA allows people to temporarily continue to participate in group health insurance after leaving an employer’s plan, but the cost is generally much greater than their former contribution.“Switching to a plan on Washington Healthplanfinder can, in some instances, save a person hundreds or thousands of dollars,” said Michael Marchand, exchange spokesman. “For many people, COBRA may have been their only option, and it may have been an expensive option.”Completed applications must be submitted to the exchange, www.wahealthplanfinder.org, by 11:59 p.m. July 1. Washington Healthplanfinder does offer special enrollment throughout the year for people with qualifying life events, such as getting married, having a child, adopting a child, involuntarily losing health coverage, moving to a new coverage area or aging out of a parent’s plan.Limited window to enrollThe exchange requires verifying information — a marriage certificate or birth certificate, for example — to confirm the change, Marchand said. Residents have 60 days from the date of the qualifying life event to enroll in a plan through the exchange.last_img read more

Jayne Another Reagan Todays GOP wouldnt welcome him

first_imgIt always is inspiring.As the seat of American government and the embodiment of the American Dream and the cauldron of so much of our nation’s history, Washington, D.C., always is inspiring. So, as we recently took a family vacation to the nation’s capital, I was confident that I would be struck by a column idea along the way. I just didn’t expect it to come from our tour guide at the Capitol building.“We get calls all the time from people saying, ‘Why can’t we have another Ronald Reagan?’ ” said the young woman, an intern from the office of Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Camas. “Some people just want to vent, but they wonder why we can’t have another Reagan.”This, I suppose, is predictable. For three decades now, Reagan has been viewed as the pinnacle of modern conservatism, as the model for the Republican Party, as the man who made it morning again in America. He was the first president of my adult life, winning re-election in 1984 by capturing 49 states and 59 percent of the popular vote.And while I can understand how Reagan is lionized by the right, I can’t help but notice that many modern Republicans have distorted and bastardized his legacy to suit their own desires.As political activist Mark McKinnon said: “Ronald Reagan was long thought to be the most conservative of Republicans. And by any standard today he is the most popular Republican in modern history. Yet he raised taxes 11 times, supported a ban on assault rifles and the Brady Bill, which mandated background checks, and established amnesty for 3 million undocumented workers.”last_img read more
