Her story of her own self at 15, and what happened to her own mother, and how she had a fear of guns, then later the death of her own daughter, by an abuser with a gun. It is so tragic, and sad. Mama Mia Or maybe Tiki? October 23, 2017 at 8:44 pm LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply I should have called in to you all’s show, but I didn’t want to freak you both out…..!!! Take care, Mama Mia According to a gun violence website with over 2,000 independent sources throughout the United States, there have been 50,067 incidents of gun violence, 12,499 deaths, 25,522 injuries, 291 mass shootings, 248 law enforcement officers shot or killed, and 1,623 accidental shootings in the United States in 2017. Among those staggering numbers are 586 children under the age of 12, and 2,621 teenagers (ages 12-17) who were killed or injured by a firearm.***** It was a terrible week in Central Florida history. Two law enforcement officers from the Orlando Police Department and the Orange County Sheriff’s Office lost their lives. Markeith Loyd, a murder suspect on the loose for weeks was recognized by a witness at a Walmart on Princeton Street in Orlando. The witness told Master Sergeant Debra Clayton (who also happened to be at Walmart) of the Orlando Police Department. Clayton pursued Loyd but was shot and killed by him in that pursuit. Clayton was a 17-year veteran of the OPD and was a well-known community activist with a passion for children.Two hours later OCSO Deputy First Class Norman Lewis lost his life after a traffic crash at the intersection of Balboa and North Pine Hills Road in Orlando. Lewis was in search of Loyd when the crash occurred. He was 35 years old and had been with the OCSO since March of 2005. He was a member of the OCSO Motors/DUI Unit. He was a graduate of the University of Central Florida where he played football for the Knights.After shooting Clayton, Loyd stole a car, shot at another law enforcement officer, apparently fled into an apartment complex and disappeared into the Pine Hills/Rosemont neighborhoods. He was captured about a week later with an arsenal of weapons in a vacant house in Orlando but surrendered without a violent response.***** This week on LET’S TALK ABOUT IT with Rod Love and Greg Jackson, the co-hosts are taking on the issue of domestic violence, and its correlation to gun violence. Their guest is Stephanie Dixon-Daniels, the mother of Sade Dixon, who was the pregnant ex-girlfriend of Markeith Loyd who was shot and killed by Loyd in December of 2016.***** October 23, 2017 at 8:45 pm Mama Mia How is her name spelled, is it Teke?

The first time I tried to listen, I clicked on it, and all I got was music. I thought that it was a link to a recording of you all’s broadcast, but then I realized it was live, and it was not on a Monday at the time slot that you both are on.

Reply Those 16 states that take away the guns of people who have been issued injunctions to stay away from their victims, it is good in one way, but then again it may infuriate the abuser even more, and he may then go into a rage, much like a child, when their toys are taken away. Reply Reply So sorry to hear Rod talk about his own situation growing up in Miami. Also Greg, your college fraternity days, and the awful events of abuse within your fraternity brothers, and their brothers……do you think you and Rod may take on and discuss a different sort of abuse, the hazing incidents?

KGO-TV(San Francisco) — Newly surfaced video shows an Asian woman in her 50s brutally robbed at gunpoint in San Francisco in October 2020.The incident took place in the Sunset neighborhood. The woman, who only wished to be identified as Ms. Lee, according to San Francisco ABC station KGO-TV, said the attack occurred after she arrived at her niece’s home after having dim sum with friends in the Richmond District.Footage of the incident, which police are reviewing, appears to be taken from a security camera across the street and shows a white SUV pass by Ms. Lee, then circle back and stop near her. A person then jumps out of the van and grabs her.Lee falls to the ground and is heard screaming for help as the man pulls her bag from her hands and holds her at gun point, according to KGO-TV.She told the station that one suspect returned after the robbery of the handbag to take her jewelry and Rolex watch.“It really changed her so much, every time she talks about it, she cries,” her longtime friend Kathie Mar, who was at a restaurant with her earlier that day, told KGO.She said that Lee left the restaurant and was unknowingly followed for miles to the Sunset neighborhood.“She is definitely afraid to go out on her own now, to get in and out of her car, it’s scary,” Mar told KGO.The San Francisco Police Department is investigating the incident.The attack comes amid a spate of crimes against Asian Americans.The coronavirus pandemic and its suspected origins in the Chinese city of Wuhan is cited as having led to a fresh onslaught of anti-Asian discrimination in the United States that has waged on for over a year.From March 19, 2020, to Feb. 28, there were more than 3,795 hate incidents, including verbal harassment and physical assault, against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the United States, reported to Stop AAPI Hate, a nonprofit organization that tracks such incidents.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

Interim Appellate Court Clerk Replaces SmithDave Stafford for www.theindianalawyer.comLong-serving Indiana appellate court clerk Kevin S. Smith resigned recently, and former deputy clerk Greg Pachmayr is now serving as interim clerk.The transition came without announcement, and Smith appears to have stepped down in mid-March. Appellate court opinions last bore Smith’s official clerk stamp on March 16. Subsequent opinions are file stamped with a generic, unsigned seal from the clerk of the Indiana Supreme Court, Court of Appeals and Tax Court.Smith, who served as clerk since 2006, could not be reached for comment Friday. A source familiar with the situation said Smith had resigned to pursue career opportunities in private practice. He was admitted to practice in 1997 and had a career in private practice prior to his tenure as clerk. Pachmayr was admitted to practice in 2009 and prior to serving as deputy clerk had worked in the Indiana Professional Licensing Agency.Duties of the clerk include maintaining documents filed in appeals, collecting case filing fees that are deposited in the state general fund, and issuing orders and opinions from the appeals courts. Among other duties, the clerk also maintains the roll of attorneys, collects and distributes attorney licensing fees, and in conjunction with the Board of Law Examiners, twice annually administers the oath of attorneys to new lawyers.Smith’s resignation comes amid numerous pending departures and changes in the leadership of the Division of State Court administration. The courts announced in February the creation of a new office of judicial administration to be led by a chief administrative officer and a fiscal officer. Friday is the deadline for applications for those positions.Longtime Division of State Court Administrative Executive Director Lilia Judson is acting as interim CAO and plans to retire after facilitating a transition to the new CAO. Likewise, Friday is the final day for David Remondini, interim executive director of the Division of State Court Administration.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail
Is being a pro kayaker as carefree as it sounds? It’s amazing. I live in an old RV and travel around the country for a couple of months every year. We bounce between apartments, houses, and the RV. I spend part of the year in Colorado and part of the year in Chattanooga. I like seeing new places. I like the unexpected.Is it tough to make ends meet as a boater? There’s very little support, even for the national team, so I’m basically all on my own. I’ve sold Christmas trees out of the R.V. I sell smoothies for 10 days every summer in Iowa for the Bike Ride Across Iowa. Right now, I’m a waitress at a fine dining restaurant. It’s surreal to think about kayaking while popping open a $200 bottle of wine for someone’s dinner.How do you like to train? I love to stand up paddleboard. Here in Chattanooga, I’ll paddle upstream on the Tennessee. It’s really good for your core, upper body, and balance. I like to find different ways to train. I can hit the gym and run a little, but I get bored. Last night, I tried Aerial Yoga, which is like Cirque de Soleil kind of stuff. You’re hanging from the ceiling, wrapped in fabric. It was amazing.What’s the secret to freestyle kayaking? Patience. Making a fool of yourself is a big part of freestyle. You’re not going to get a trick the first time. It’s going to take hundreds of attempts. And you’re always trying something new, different, harder. It definitely takes patience. But it’s worth it. I know that if I can do a McNasty in the last 10 seconds of my heat, it can change the competition for everyone.Watch film of Mills surfing and flipping on the Gauley. Freestyle paddling champ Haley Mills. 2010 was a banner year for 27-year-old Haley Mills. The Kentucky-born freestyle kayaker, who spends her winters training in Chattanooga, scored a third-place finish at the Teva Mountain Games, claimed the USACK National Freestyle Championship title, and earned a spot on the U.S. National Freestyle Team. Mills shared the ups and downs of pro kayaking while she prepares for the World Freestyle Championships to be held in Germany this June.

QPR face Birmingham City at St Andrews today, with Sandro in contention for his first start since May.The Brazilian midfielder made his first appearance of the season when he came on as a second-half substitute during Rangers’ 4-3 win against Bolton before the international break.Having impressed in that game and in training since, Sandro is pushing for a starting place.
