NEW YORK Baz Luhrmann’s big screen adaption of “The Great Gatsby” is shining a spotlight on Roaring Twenties glam fashions, from drop waist dresses and head scarves to crisp bow ties and spectator shoes. But you don’t need a wallet the size of Jay Gatsby’s to get the look.

There are plenty of choices if you want to dress head to toe or just spice up your wardrobe with a few accent pieces like a retro print head scarf.

Several big name brands that made costumes or accessories for the Warner Bros. film, such as Brooks Brothers and Fogal, are offering some interpretations for sale to shoppers. But to replicate the style of Gatsby or Daisy Buchanan, just mix and match, using items from a variety of stores like H and online marketplace eBay.

“Watch the movie, and then pick out items that evoke the era,” said Amanda Hallay, professor of costume history at LIM College, a fashion business college based in Manhattan. “Don’t be shy to get them secondhand.”

Hallay cautions however, to avoid buying overly beaded dresses that look like you’re wearing a costume if you plan to keep them for a while.

Some men may not want to buy the pale pink three piece suit the kind that Leonard DiCaprio wore for one scene in his role as Gatsby but they could still find a pink vest, pants or jacket to evoke the era, fashion experts say.

Here are four strategies to get the look without feeling like you came off a Hollywood movie set.

TURN TO THE MOVIE’S FASHION PARTNERS: Brooks Brothers made more than 500 men’s costumes for the movie,
kids timberland Get 'The Great Gatsby' look for less
and from those inspirations, created 50 styles to sell to shoppers.

They’re not cheap: Prices range from $60 bowties to $996 for a suit. Fogal, which also created hosiery for the movie, offers for sale several styles. The collection goes from $40 for knee highs to $125 for lacey stockings.

The advantage? They’re designed to look good together. “There isn’t a single item that looks out of place,” said Arthur Wayne, a spokesman at Brooks Brothers. “They are really classic, iconic pieces for us. It was really important they didn’t look like costumes.”

And you don’t have to buy a whole wardrobe worth. The company is selling suits as separates so rather than spending as much as $1,000 for the whole suit, men can buy just the pants or the jacket to get the look

MIX AND MATCH: You can pull together plenty of fashions and accessories that reflect 1920s glamour by just searching the racks of less expensive clothing stores. Half the fun can be in the treasure hunt.

For example, plenty of fashion stores offer such looks as drop waist dresses and head scarves, Hallay says.

Looking for a strand of faux pearls? Shop at low priced jewelry chains or discounters. Women can turn to moderate price shoe stores to get T strapped shoes with small heels.

SEARCH ONLINE: Search the Web for such terms as “retro print scarves” or “Great Gatsby fashion.”

The items start at $26 for a faux pearl necklace for women; for men, the items start at $29 for stainless steel cufflinks.

You should also turn to eBay, which has seen the number of searches for terms relating to Gatsby more than double since 2011. The average selling price for a flapper dress is $56,

while the average selling price for “art deco” jewelry is $91 Shoppers can get “spectator” shoes for $63.

“We get up there and ring everything in, and I’m $5.52 short,” Chelsea said. “And I literally had grabbed all the change I had in the car. I had no money on me, I had just my cellphone and keys, and I felt helpless.”

She told a disappointed Violet she’d have to put one of her new toys back until a nearby cashier stepped in.

“The young lady at the register next to us, she finished with her customer and then she came right over, and she was like, ‘No problem,'” Chelsea said. “Pulls out her little credit card she’s like, ‘I got this. I’ll pay for it.’ And I was like, ‘No, you don’t have to do that, we can put something back.’ She’s like, ‘No, it’s fine.'”

The cashier, Sheilla Nelson, said she didn’t think twice about helping out.

“It was just an instinct, because I like to do nice things for other people,” Nelson said.

Roger Provencher was so moved by Nelson’s kindness toward his wife and daughter, he decided to pay it forward. He went back to the Toys R Us and insisted on donating $552 100 times the amount Nelson gave Violet in the form of a gift card, to be distributed among future customers who might need help with their purchases.

timberland online sale Germans have hands to blame for Euro exit

You can hardly blame German bench boss Joachim Low for, perhaps, not feeling comfortable telling his players what to do with their hands. His infamous scratch n sniff moment will forever be ingrained in the minds of those who witnessed it.

But after watching Jerome Boateng Titanic like moment last weekend against Italy, it was shocking to see Schweinsteiger produce a similar handball that completely derailed Germany game one that ended Die Mannschaft European Championship.

was unfortunate we conceded the goal, Low said. was bad luck one minute for halftime. Of course we had chances. We didn score. Today we didn have the luck we would have needed. looked pained as Low replaced him late in Thursday night semifinal. The only reason he began this fixture was due to numerous injuries the Germans faced following their quarterfinal slugfest with the Azzurri.

Even so, the Germans were in complete control until Schweinsteiger raised his arm in first half stoppage time, the precursor to Patrice Evra glancing header striking the German veteran’s arm inside the penalty area.

It left Italian referee Nicola Rizzoli with a decision to make. Having conferred with his goal line official, Rizzoli pointed to the spot. The call was so delayed the reaction here was one of confusion followed by immense elation.

Golden Boot leader Antoine Griezmann converted the ensuing spot kick, raising the noise level inside Stade Velodrome to levels unmatched at venues across this country. It was a classic case of goals changing games.

“When we went out of the tournaments in 2010 and 2012, the sides that beat us were better than us, Low added. that wasn the case. We were better than the French other than the goals and the result. Germans appeared unstoppable up until the Schweinsteiger error, accumulating upwards of 70% possession and completing twice the number of passes. The French weren on the same level.

Rizzoli decision, though, was ultimately what decided this semifinal. The Germans took more risks after halftime, leading to Les Bleus enjoying a few more counter attack opportunities before the Germans produced another gaffe.

The world champs rarely compound mistakes with mistakes, but Griezmann game clincher midway through the second half signified what happened here Thursday night: The Germans, almost flawless through two straight major tournaments,
new timberlands Germans have hands to blame for Euro exit
beat themselves.

German fullback Joshua Kimmich inexplicably turned over possession close to goal before Shkodran Mustafi allowed Paul Pogba to dance by him. The French midfielder cross was misplayed by Manuel Neuer, who tipped the ball only as far as Griezmann.

The pint sized French forward rolled the ball into Germany vacated net to set up a mouth watering meeting between the hosts and Cristiano Ronaldo led Portugal on Sunday back at Stade de France, the venue France opened this tournament at.

did what we needed to today, French manager Didier Deschamps said. we were clinical. Hugo Lloris was great. He really was crucial when he needed to be. Mannschaft will point to key injuries as being a determining factor in this semifinal. Both Mario Gomez the only true No. 9 in Low arsenal and Sami Khedira, who Schweinsteiger replaced, were sorely missed.

But they still looked a shadow of themselves at this tournament. That they don have any strikers outside Gomez doesn bode well.

Thomas Muller again showed Thursday night he better suited playing beneath a target man and Mario Gotze, the false No. 9 Low began the tournament with, has fallen so far down Germany bench he next to the team physician.

had four important players we couldn benefit from, Low said. the side has done everything. We had a lot of courage. We invested a lot. There nothing blame them for. Germans will undoubtedly blood new options throughout World Cup qualification in hopes of finding more options up front in the wake of Miroslav Klose retirement.

The hosts, meanwhile, are all that stand in the way of Ronaldo achieving something he told reporters he this week.

Unlike the Germans, Les Bleus aren looking past the weekend, when this group of French players could become immortalized alongside this country all time greats. Griezmann arguably has already.

If he continues this goal scoring tear, his Bling goal celebration will be a welcome sight in Saint Denis.

And a lesson to Low and Germany that there a right and wrong way to use your hands at this competition.

LOW TALKS HANDBALLS

Joachim Low didn say it was a bad call.

But the Germany manager certainly seemed to indicate he didn like it after the French eliminated the defending world champs from this Euro.

Bastian Schweinsteiger game changing handball in first half stoppage time handed France an undeserved lead heading into the break.

Following an otherwise flawless first half, the Germans were suddenly behind the eight ball in a match they seemed in total control of.

timberland baby boots German trade surplus shrinks for first time in 8 years

leather timberland boots German trade surplus shrinks for first time in 8 years

Germany’s trade surplus shrank for the first time since 2009 last year as imports outpaced exports in Europe’s booming top economy, giving Berlin ammunition to ease criticism of its huge trade gap with other countries.

Germany routinely comes under fire over its massive trade surplus, with partners from Paris to Washington urging the government to address the chronic imbalance by doing more to encourage consumption at home, indirectly boosting other nations.

In what may go some way to silencing those complaints, Destatis said imports soared by 8.3 percent last year to an all time high of 1.03 trillion euros.

It marks the first time German imports have breached the psychologically significant trillion euro barrier, and comes as the economy is humming, wages are high and unemployment is lower than ever.

But Germany’s exporters are also on a roll, benefiting from a robust global recovery.

Exports shot up 6.3 percent to 1.3 trillion euros last year another fresh record.

“It’s the typical German success story when it comes to exports,” analyst Carsten Brzeski of ING Diba bank told AFP.

The latest snapshot of the country’s trade balance could make it easier for German policymakers to counter criticism of its massive surplus, he said.

“They can say: this is what you have been arguing for,” said Brzeski.

But insatiable appetite for German goods abroad means the irritation is likely to persist.

“For the critics, the reduction is far too little,” he said. “I expect the country will still have extremely high trade and current account surpluses in 2018.”

‘Unfair’

The 2017 figures showed that German demand was strongest for goods made inside the European Union, but there was also a nine percent jump in imports from the rest of the world,
timberland baby boots German trade surplus shrinks for first time in 8 years
including the United States.

Most of Germany’s goods sold abroad meanwhile were bought by fellow EU member states, accounting for some 750 billion euros, up 6.3 percent on 2016.

Looking ahead, observers say the recent strength of the euro may put the brakes on exports in coming months, as a stronger currency makes German goods more expensive abroad.

But Brzeski said exporters are unlikely to suffer much.

“German exports have always proven to be resistant to a strong euro,” he said.

He added however that the euro’s rise against the dollar in particular means Germany may “feel some negative impact” in its bilateral trade with the US.

US President Donald Trump has been among the most vocal opponents of Germany’s surpluses, calling his country’s trade deficit with Germany “unfair” and wondering aloud why there are so many German cars on American roads.

But he is far from alone.

European partners and global institutions like the International Monetary Fund have long urged the German government to spend and invest more to push up demand and boost growth in other regions.

German officials argue that the trade surplus reflects the strength of the “made in Germany” brand and insist there is little they can do to influence the spending of companies and individuals.

But those arguments have done little to stop the grumbling. Just last month, IMF chief Lagarde called on Berlin to relax its cherished budgetary discipline and help “reduce global imbalances”.

Merkel’s spending plans

Those pleas have perhaps not fallen on deaf ears.

The coalition pact unveiled by Chancellor Angela Merkel’s would be new government on Wednesday reaffirmed Berlin’s commitment to a balanced budget, but also pledged billions of euros in extra spending on education, childcare and internet infrastructure.

Critics will also be cheered by rising salaries in Europe’s powerhouse, with Destatis announcing that real earnings grew 0.8 percent in 2017.

The country’s most powerful union IG Metall, which represents nearly four million workers, this week won a 4.3 percent pay increase from employers, setting the tone for similar wage hikes in other industries.

2. German politics: Europe’s top economy may be closer to forming its next government.

According to reports in German media, the opposition party SPD say it’s now open to coalition talks with Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Merkel has struggled to form a government since her election victory in late September and some fear another election could be required.

Meanwhile, a key measure of business confidence published by Germany’s IFO hit a record high in November. A survey of Eurozone purchasing managers released Wednesday showed a sharp jump in business confidence and hiring at its highest level in 17 years.

Investors cheered the news. Germany’s DAX jumped 0.2% and the euro gained against major currencies.

headquarters situated in Arlington, Va. A spokesman told the Dayton Daily News that the grocery chain is looking at sites across the state. The spokesman also said it is too early to forecast opening time lines or estimate how many stores could open in Ohio.

The chain, which is known for its discounted prices on food products, is focused on its first round of 10 stores that just opened in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. Lidl is also known for its private labels and innovative store layouts and it even sells but casual clothing.

Lidl is looking for possible new store sites in Texas, Ohio, Virginia, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey and Delaware, according to Lidl website. in the next year, and will open up to 100 stores on the East Coast by summer 2018.

Beavercreek Planning Director Jeff McGrath said late Monday that he had received an inquiry within the last two months from someone looking for potential sites for a grocery concept in the city, but the representative did not disclose what company he represented. There has been no follow up yet, McGrath said.

According to Lidl officials, potential sites should be: located within current targeted Lidl areas; a minimum of 3.5 acres to accommodate a 36,000 square foot stand alone store with room for at least 150 parking spaces; positioned in an established retail location; within a dense population area within three miles. Possible sites must also see traffic of more than 20,000 vehicles come through the area daily, and must be zoned for grocery retail use.

Lidl first opened in 1973, about 25 miles south of Frankfurt, Germany. The chain didn start expanding outside of Germany until the 1990s, and now Lidl operates more than 10,000 stores in 27 countries.

mens timberland boots sale uk German dialects

Some of the existing article’s sections could become different articles in their own right if we don’t want to lose that information.

One beef I have about it as it stands is that its too much like a linguistics textbook. One can go out and buy those. I think we should try to give the big picture here, and then refer people to other places for the gory details.

What do you all think? May I tackle this article? Will anyone be offended if I archive what’s here and, well, start over?Pat Palmer 13:05, 3 April 2007 (CDT)

I think that you should use {{speedydelete}} in this article. Versuri 13:20, 3 April 2007 (CDT)

I decided to go for it. This is likely to be a rather controversial statement, and I’m not sure it’s linguistically valid: one could just as easily argue that German is Dutch. Perhaps needs a rethink. John Stephenson 05:02, 4 April 2007 (CDT)

This appears to be something of a controversy; I have already heard from one other person (who is Dutch) objecting to the article, so I will reword it. Just to clarify in advance, however, I intend to claim (and defend if necessary) that from the viewpoint of comparative historical linguistics, there is no distinction in the dialect continuum between the regional Germanic dialects which now lie in the country of Germany and those which lie in the easterns reaches of The Netherlands. Please click on section 6 “19th and 20th century” for subsection “Dialects” and scroll down to the fourth from last paragraph, which states: “The demarcation between Dutch and German dialects is made on the basis of the standard language spoken in the region concerned. Venlo dialect is regarded as Dutch because the inhabitants of Venlo use Dutch in school and in “official” situations; the language of Krefeld on the other hand is treated as a German dialect because High German is the overarching standard language there.” Historically from a linguistics viewpoint, the dialects of Dutch speaking regions are within the same dialect continuumas the various regional Germanic dialects which lie across the river in Germany. The Dutch dialects, however, are in a continuum with the various regions inside Germany; these are called “West Germanic”. English is theoretically in the same continuum, but it diverged considerably more from the dialects now within Germany than those in Dutch territory did. German and Dutch have a common ancestor: Mittel Deutsch or Dietsch (guess where Dutch came from) but apart from that the languages developed in totally different ways mainkly because Germany didn’t exist other than as a collection of earlships and kingdoms contrary to the netherlands where a more centralized government, or trade center in the 15th and 16th century, became important. By far more important than the ‘peasants’ that called themselves germanes. To state Dutch is a German dialect means you know little about the gammar of both languages since they are rather different. It however is correct to state they have a common ancestor but developed differently. So please let’s just drop it. I am not saying (and I even included a disclaimer) that Dutch is German. Dutch is very close to Low German but the former is not considered part of “German” because of the political boundaries. Yet realize that the dialect of, say, Venlo is closer to the neighboring dialects of German than it is to Standard Dutch. Why is Swiss German considered German, when from a linguistic point of view it can be argued it is further removed from Standard German (prescriptive grammar) than many Dutch dialects? The history of both German and Dutch is much more complicated than Robert indicates. They do NOT both derive from Mittel Deutsch or Dietsch (in fact, “Mittel Deutsch” is a term that does not exist in historical linguistics). Neither Dutch nor German has only ONE ancestor because neither Dutch nor German is one language at present. Standard Dutch and Standard German are artificial grammars based on compromises of regional variants. The individual dialects have individual ancestors. Low German and High German have vastly different ancestries, though Low German and Dutch share a lot. The exact origin of Dutch remains unknown because Dutch combines features of so many different Germanic dialects (including Frisian, Old English, Saxon, and Low Franconian). High German dialects are a mix of Bavarian, Alemannic (including Swabian), East Franconian, South Franconian, and various forms of Middle or Rhine Franconian dialects. The modern language of German, or Hochdeutsch (Standard German) is mostly East Franconian with some Low German admixtures (very rough description). Michel van der Hoek 13:26, 30 May 2008 (CDT)

Relative ease of learning German

While a consensus exists on the view that similar languages are broadly easier to learn because there’s less to be done I am not at all sure about some of the material in this passage and the previous one about active word building, specifically the idea that German kids can learn quicker through compounding. For example, how would they know that Handschuh means glove, and not hand shoe (a shoe that for some reason you put on your hand). Consider that you may be using your adult knowledge of the world to reject this interpretation, because children don’t necessarily know that shoes are not for hands. (To digress: do native German speakers take the view that there is no fundamental difference between shoes and gloves, because they both contain Schuh?) Is there any research on this? John Stephenson 05:23, 7 May 2007 (CDT)

I did think about where my information came from. First, I taught German to English speakers for about 4 years, so some of what I wrote is based on my own experience of learning German as an adult and then teaching it to quite a few people later. Second, I recall reading about some studies on this somewhere, but that was some years ago, and I don’t remember where. I will try to look into sources when I can. I think it might have been more a cognitive science source than a linguistics one. I only have university library access for a few more weeks (due to a course I’m teaching later this summer) but I will try to follow through. I appreciate your comments. If german is easy to learn for english native speakers the reciproke should be valid as well. Not the case. Since the structure of the languages are totally different speaking german on a high academic level is very hard, specially for english native speakers. Add to that the possibility to creat =e words on the fly by combining two independent nouns into a new word with a new meaning, as well as the fact that german, as well as dutch, use words that get their meaning only, and not before, in the context of a sentence I fail to see where the easy comes from. Contrary I would rather say: see how a german native speaker speaks english and writes english and you no doubt will agree to that. Easy to learn, maybe up to the level of 10 year olds but beyond no, I strongly disagree there. Und da nicht nur wegen meine Kenntnissen der Deutsche Sprache. English is notoriously difficult for non native speakers due to its huge vocabulary and odd spellings/pronunciations from many languages. German, on the other hand, has a relatively small vocabulary, and phonetic spelling. I’ve learned French, German, Spanish, Russian, Latin (and studied a few other languages), and I promise you that German is the easiest of all languages for native English speakers to learn, at least with good teaching and real practice it is. I’ve also taught German to English speakers for 4 years. As in standdarddeutsch is an invented word without ANY significant meaning. Germans know only Hochdeutsch (alsdo known as Hoch Deutsch) and dialect versions. Hoch in this way is the standard German, So please remove standarddeutsch as it is non existent. I thought maybe some new movement had come along.

knee high timberland boots Georgia sweeps Florida with 72

high timberland boots Georgia sweeps Florida with 72

Florida mystifying season of inconsistency continued Wednesday night at the O Center.

The Gators were done in by another second half collapse in a 72 69 overtime loss that broke more than a few hearts on Valentine Day.

There was no magic this time from senior point guard Chris Chiozza, whose last gasp 3 point attempt to tie the game at the buzzer and force a second overtime clanged off the iron as time expired.

Florida (17 9, 8 5 SEC), which had won back to back games, suffered its fourth home loss of the season. But it was how the Gators self destructed down the stretch that was most perplexing. Florida let an 11 point lead slip away in the final 10:05 and blew a seven point lead in the final 1:23.

“That’s about as tough an ending to a game as I’ve experienced,” Florida coach Mike White said.

The most critical mistake, junior guard Jalen Hudson being called for a travel on an in bounds play with Florida up 59 56 and 13.6 seconds left. That allowed Georgia a chance for a game tying shot, and Yante Maten delivered with a 3 pointer with 5 seconds left to send the game to overtime.

“We’ve struggled getting the ball in bounds all year against pressure,” White said. “This team lacks physicality as we’ve talked about. We’re in a one on one situation with one of their perimeter guys. If we get the ball in bounds to one of our two 90 percent shooters, the game is over . an absolute lack of discipline that’s on me.”

As for Maten getting an open look to tie the game and send it into overtime.

“Lack of communication, which is what we’ve struggled with all year,” White said. “Tonight’s game was an example of who we are. There are some great teams in college basketball and a handful of good teams that are great certain nights and very average other nights, and that’s who we are, because of those areas, focus, communication, lack of communication, lack of physicality.”

In overtime, Florida missed 5 of its first 6 free throw attempts, including two straight by Chiozza, an 87.3 percent free throw shooter. The empty trips allowed Georgia to build a 66 60 lead in overtime on an inside layup by Maten, dunk by Derek Ogbeide and a 3 pointer from Tyree Crump. The six point overtime lead was too much for UF to overcome.

Led by 23 points and 10 rebounds from Maten, Georgia (14 11, 5 8 SEC) snapped a three game losing streak and 14 game losing streak at the O Center, winning its first game at UF since 2002. The Bulldogs swept the regular season series for the first time since 1996 97.

Florida went close to eight minutes without a basket in the second half, allowing a 50 39 lead to whittle to 51 50 on an Ogbeide inside dunk with 3:33 left. The Gators were caught in a number of late shot situations in scoring just one point during a 7:29 stretch. Junior center Kevarrius Hayes was called for a pair of offensive fouls while redshirt freshman forward Dontay Bassett got called for basket interference on a putback attempt.

“They get into a great rhythm scoring in the block after making us defend for long periods and I was at a point where we needed to slow it down,” White said. “I was in fear we take a quick one and miss it, it’s going to be another Yante Maten layup, another Ogbeide layup, another Ogbeide putback. I thought we played tired in the second half offensively. I think Georgia had a lot to do that. It was our goal to make them guard a little bit as well.

“Again, I thought we had some stuff in the paint after we made them guard for certain lengths in the second half to where we just didn’t finish or get to the foul line.”

Forward Egor Koulechov appeared to save the day, converting a three point play to put Florida up 54 50 with 2:36 left and a 3 pointer to give UF a 57 50 edge with 1:23 left, but Crump hit a 3 pointer to cut UF lead to 57 53, then Maten hit a 3 pointer to pull the Bulldogs within 59 56.

Koulechov and junior guard KeVaughn Allen led Florida with 19 points apiece. Freshman guard Mike Okauru added 14 points off the bench. is probably the toughest loss that we’ve had all year because we felt like we were getting in a groove,” Koulechov said. “We’ve got to go back to the lab now and get the groove back again. That’s all we can do.”

Chiozza struggled, going 2 of 14 from the field and finishing with 5 points. Hudson, UF’s leading scorer at 15.7 points per game, went scoreless

“That’s not Chris Chiozza,” White said. “He wasn’t the only guy.”

Florida struggled from the field early, making 7 of its first 25 shots. But the Gators were able to sustain the defensive intensity they showed in clamping down South Carolina last Saturday.

After a Juwan Parker jumper put Georgia up 18 15, the Gators held Georgia scoreless for a 5:02 stretch during a 9 0 run. Allen first 3 pointer of the game tied the score at 18, while a transition layup by Stone off a steal from Koulechov put Florida up 22 18.

Florida then extended its lead to 24 18 on a pair of Stone free throws, but Georgia rallied, cutting UF lead to 24 23 on a three point play from freshman forward Rayshaun Hammonds. Okauru, who provided another nice left off the bench with 9 points in the first half, sank a corner 3 pointer to put UF back up 27 23.

Allen was able to continue his strong play off the bench, finding sophomore center Gorjok Gak for an inside layup to put Florida up 29 25. Allen then made a pair of free throws after taking a hard foul along the sidelines, and made another 3 pointer to give Florida its biggest lead of the half, 34 25. The Gators took a 34 27 into halftime, overcoming shooting 32.3 percent from the field by limiting Georgia field goal percentage to 34.8 percent.

Florida dealt with foul trouble throughout the first half. Chiozza, junior center Kevarrius Hayes, redshirt freshman forward Dontay Bassett and Hudson each picked up two first half fouls. By attacking the Gators inside throughout the half, Georgia got to the free throw line 14 times in the first half and drew 11 UF fouls.

The shooting of two Georgia correctional officers Tuesday morning was caught on video, according to Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills, who declined to go into details.

Law enforcement continued to search into the evening for the two inmates who shot the officers and escaped from a bus during a routine prisoner transfer.

GBI director Vernon Keenan said the reward was $30,000 for each man and he expected that amount to increase as more people and organizations want to help. In addition to the GBI and FBI, the Fraternal Order of Police and the Georgia Department of Corrections contributed to the reward.

“That’s reported to the state of Florida and that’s to ensure that no unsafe levels are bio accumulating in the fish,” says Thompson.

Not only that, the company is required by the state to improve their water treatment at the mill.

timberland vouchers Georgia mother of 11 claims domestic abuse in divorce case

Now, after the imprisonment of the father and the removal of the children from the home, the mother has filed for divorce and is citing spousal abuse on her husband’s part.

A temporary hearing for the Divorce Law action has been scheduled for March 31.

Christine Long, who has been accused of not providing proper child care, says in her divorce complaint that her husband, Jeremy Long, continually abused her and the children, some of whom allegedly resulted from marital rape. According to Christine Long, Jeremy Long refused to let her leave the family home, resorting to stomping on her feet with boots before he went to work and forbidding her to own a pair of shoes. He supposedly also refused to give his wife access to

prenatal care while she was pregnant.

County investigators took the children away in July. Jeremy Long Georgia Family Lawyer has since been charged with child cruelty and is currently in prison in Burke County.

“Conditions in the home were prison like,” Christine Long’s divorce lawyer,

Jack Long, told WJBF TV in Augusta, Georgia. “There weren’t enough beds. There was never enough food.” He added: “The situation was so desperate, my client and her children really didn’t have any options, other than to stay.

“We can easily define this as torture in a very basic sense,” Jack Long told the station. “The woman is in such shock,” Al Wright, the church’s pastor, explained about women in abusive situations in an interview with WJBF. “So she doesn’t know what to do. Then again, when children come along, she really gets trapped.” He added that every woman in such a situation should get herself and the children out of it as soon as possible: “She owes that to herself and her family. You don’t have to stay in that situation of abuse.

timberland ladies snow boots Georgia Man Sentenced for Identity Theft Charges

Peterman, III said, “Identity theft is one of the most prevalent crimes in the United States today. The results can be devastating, depriving the victims not only of their money but of their reputation, credit rating and peace of mind. People who prey on their fellow citizens in the manner of Mr. Lee are nothing more than predators. Hopefully this prosecution and sentence will send the message to others who might be similarly inclined that they will be punished to the fullest extent of the law when caught.”

“Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in the nation. Secret Service remains committed to aggressively investigating those responsible for committing identity theft for the purpose of defrauding the nation’s financial system. Victims that have their personally identifiable information (PII) stolen have their lives invaded in a way that often causes long lasting financial consequences. Along with our law enforcement partners we will continue to pursue those committing these crimes,” said Clint A. Bush, Resident Agent in Charge, Albany, Georgia Resident Office, United States Secret Service.

The case was investigated by the United States Secret Service and the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office. Assistant United States Attorney Robert D. McCullers prosecuted the case on behalf of the Government. There, he sold them the personal identity information of around 1,100 unknowing victims.

“This is one case where one arrest has potentially identified 1,100 victims. That’s very unusual to find that kind of reach on a case”, says Lt. Stryde Jones, with the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office.

Jones says that while Lee was from Statesboro, the victims are mostly from out of state.

“These are 1,100 lives that were going to be ruined, at least for a short period of time, and at bare minimum, an inconvenience to try to get their credit history straightened out”, he says.

Local residents say this arrest makes them worry that their personal information could be being sold in another state.

“I’m constantly buying stuff online and putting my credit card in places, so yea, it’s scary,” says Valdosta resident, Tabatha McGee.

“I kind of want to be a little more mindful of where my information goes, and where I put it at,” says Valdosta resident, Leslie Ingram.

Jai Lee has been charged with multiple counts of identity theft. Jones says his office is working with the Secret Service to find out where the information was initially compromised.

Lee was brought here, to the Lowndes County Jail last night, and appeared before a Magistrate Court today. No word yet on whether or not he received bond.

News Release: Lowndes County Sheriff’s OfficeJune 26, 2014

VALDOSTA, Ga Wednesday afternoon, investigators from the Special Operations Division and the Criminal Investigation Division along with agents from the United States Secret Service arrested Jai Lee following an undercover operation.

Lee had been communicating with agents and agreed to sell the identification information of unknowing victims. As agreed upon, Lee delivered the package which was intercepted by investigators and examined. The package contained the personal identification information of approximately 1,100 different people.

Jai Lee was taken to the Lowndes County Jail and booked on multiple counts of identity theft. He will appear in the Magistrate Court this afternoon where a bond will be considered.

Sheriff Prine stated that Sheriff’s Office investigators and Secret Service agents will be continuing working to contact the victims and identify the source where the information was initially compromised.

timberland boots on sale Georgia freshman has powerful bloodlines thanks to mom

girls pink timberland boots Georgia freshman has powerful bloodlines thanks to mom

Milan Richard’s bloodlines are rare and powerful.

His parents, Bill and Veronica Richard, were track All Americans in 1981 and 1982, respectively, at the University of Georgia. Bill, who is 6 foot 3, starred in the 110 meter hurdles, while 5 7 Veronica was a standout sprinter.

Well, Bill got his wish, because Milan has developed into a powerful 6 3, 200 pound freshman two way end at Calvary Day (Savannah), a Class A school with 400 students in grades 9 12. He has played mostly JV this year, but has appeared briefly in four or five varsity games, getting in on a possible 40 plays. He made eight tackles in one JV game.

“I just look at him and he is so much better than I could have thought of being at my age,” Bill said proudly. “He has broad shoulders and narrow hips. He has an 82 inch wingspan and wears size 14 shoes. He’s going to be (at least) 6 5.”

Because the family is so close knit, Herschel Walker never gets any special treatment when he comes home to visit. Milan knew his uncle was famous, but his eyes were opened wide when he began writing a research paper about him in sixth grade.

“I knew he was famous, but I didn’t know what the numbers were,” Milan related. “I started adding up his numbers (yards gained), then divided and when they popped up on the calculator . But he’s still Uncle Herschel whether the numbers were there or not.”

Milan (and everyone around him) wants to be the first Milan Richard and not the second coming of Herschel Walker. He did wear his uncle’s famous uniform No. 34 in Pop Warner football, but he began to create his own identity when he switched to No. 71 entering middle school and now he wears No. 81.

“I’m still my own person,” Milan affirms. “I’m not trying to be like him, because I know I never will be like him. There’s not really (any pressure), because I am my own person and I know that’s what he wants.”

Herschel Walker, who was just 5 9 and chubby as a freshman at Johnson County (Wrightsville),
timberland boots on sale Georgia freshman has powerful bloodlines thanks to mom
told MaxPreps, “We want him to have his own identity. Milan has to be Milan. Milan may be better than Herschel. We don’t want him to limit himself.

“He certainly has a lot of potential. It’s up to how much will he work. He’s thinning out and getting a great upper body. I would love to see him play tight end. He’s got the speed and hands.”

Asked about giving advice, Herschel replied, “I may suggest something to him. I don’t want to overload it or make it a coaching session. I just want him to have fun.”

Herschel has an 11 year old son, Christian, who wants to be a gymnast.

“He may get too big, but you don’t tell a kid he can’t do something,” Herschel said philosophically.

Herschel gave Milan his first taste of celebrity at age 10 when he came back for the University of Georgia homecoming game and took him on the famous “Dawg Walk” with the players from the team bus into the locker room. Last summer Milan took his first step toward national recognition when he attended the Football University Camp in Orlando, Fla., He did so well that he was among the elite invited to the Top Gun Camp in Williamsburg, Va., where top players competed from all 50 states.

The multi talented youngster has played baseball since his T ball days and once hit a 320 foot home run. He also plays basketball where he is a standout rebounder and has a 32 inch vertical jump. Milan said he has drawn strength from his faith which has also helped him be be a better leader.

“That’s one thing I get titled,” he said. “I know I’m the guy who can do it (make big plays) and in some situations has to do it. Being labeled a leader, everybody expects you to do it.”

Mark Stroud, third year coach of the Cavaliers, agrees that Milan “has got some leadership potential. He’s got all the physical makeup to be a tremendous player. He runs very well and is going to be a very strong, physical kid. He can be a dominant player. We want him to be Milan Richard and not play in anybody’s shadow. We try to make it low profile for him.”

The Cavaliers lose eight seniors to graduation this year and Stroud sees the possibility of Richard being a two way starter, but he’ll have to fight for his positions next year.

Milan has a favorite player in all three pro sports Ray Lewis in the NFL, LeBron James in the NBA and Albert Pujols in the Major Leagues. He has a B plus average in the classroom and believes that good grades are the key to a college scholarship.

“If I take care of my grades, the sports will come,” he said.

With both parents and a famous uncle having attended the University of Georgia, is there any choice of college for Milan?

He’s got plenty of time to decide, but he said that even if he chooses another college, “It would be tough, but I think I’d still be able to sleep in my own bed when I came home.”

timberland baby clothes Georgia fixes tax hike on leases

timberland shops uk Georgia fixes tax hike on leases

The Georgia Legislature has fixed a glitch in a new state tax law that disproportionately penalized auto leases.

The remedy came a bit late the new tax took effect March 1; the change is dated March 6. But customers who leased a vehicle in the state in the first few working days of March can apply for a refund for any additional taxes they may have paid, officials said.

Before the fix, the new Georgia state sales tax levied a 6.5 percent tax on leased vehicles at the time of the deal and another 6.5 percent tax on each monthly payment. On vehicles purchased with a loan or cash, the 6.5 percent tax is levied only at the time of the deal.

As amended, the tax on leases still applies up front, but the tax on monthly payments is dropped, according to a bulletin from the Georgia Department of Revenue.

The American Financial Services Association, a Washington based trade group that represents financial institutions,
timberland baby clothes Georgia fixes tax hike on leases
including auto lenders, supported legislation to remove the additional tax on leases, which the group has said appeared to be inadvertent.

Other groups that came out in favor of amending the tax were the National Vehicle Leasing Association, Georgia Automobile Dealers Association, Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, JM Family Enterprises and the Georgia chapter of the National Federation of Independent Businessmen.

Georgia’s new state sales tax on autos, passed in early 2012, replaced sales taxes that varied county by county. It also imposes Georgia’s first sales tax on private auto sales from one individual to another.

Russell Westbrook, Paul George lead Thunder to win while Carmelo Anthony sitsplay

Thunder win on Westbrook’s birthday (1:10)On Russell Westbrook’s 29th birthday, the NBA MVP records 27 points, six rebounds and five assists in Oklahoma City’s 112 99 win over Dallas. (1:10)FacebookTwitterFacebook MessengerPinterestEmailprintcommentOKLAHOMA CITY On his 29th birthday, Russell Westbrook took the floor with some extra flash, sporting a pair of striking, blaze orange shoes bright enough to light the entire arena if the lights went out.

His first half didn’t match the neon Jordan 10s, though, with a muted nine points on 2 of 10 shooting featuring a series of missed jumpers, including an air ball. As the horn sounded at halftime immediately following an awkward turnover, Westbrook shook his head and clapped his hands together. He returned 15 minutes later fresh with new footwear, a pair of black and blue Jordans, the blaze orange ones presumably in a trash can at the bottom of Lake Hefner. (They weren’t actually; they were sitting neatly in the bottom of Westbrook’s locker after the game.)

Westbrook’s third quarter in the new kicks: 16 points on 4 6 shooting, including 3 of 4 from 3, sparking the Thunder’s 112 99 win.

“They were working,” Westbrook said of the orange shoes. “They were fine. Just decided to switch.”

It’s not unusual for Westbrook to switch things up at halftime he changes his full uniform at halftime of every game but he clearly was looking to clear his head and start anew in the third quarter. As Westbrook likes to do, he created a little game within the game with the Mavericks bench, apparently telling them he was going to do . something.

After his first 3, a straightaway pull up, he glared right at the Mavs bench and said, “That’s one.” A few possessions later, Westbrook splashed from deep again, and the Mavs called timeout. and the Sunshine Band.

Earlier in the game, Salah Mejri rejected what would’ve been a posterific dunk from Westbrook and gave a little finger wag in the MVP’s direction. In the third quarter,
timberland shoes kids George lead Thunder to win against Mavericks
Mejri was isolated on Westbrook on a switch, and Westbrook nailed another 3 to extend the Thunder’s lead to 16. It meant Westbrook and Paul George were rolling as a superduo, reminiscent of the way things used to be for Westbrook a few seasons ago when another certain superstar played alongside him. And much in the same manner of how so many of those Thunder wins would go, Westbrook was the spark to ignite the Thunder, and George was the gasoline to blow it wide open.

Russell Westbrook and Paul George combined for 64 points on Westbrook’s 29th birthday in Oklahoma City’s 112 99 win over the Mavericks. Layne Murdoch/NBAE/GettyFollowing up a 42 point game on Friday, George poured in 37 on 12 of 22 shooting, including 7 of 12 from 3, with 29 coming in the second half. Asked what went through his mind when he found out Anthony was out, George didn’t hesitate.

“More shots,” he said, with a laugh. “Nah, I’m just playing.”

There was probably a little truth in the joke, as George looked comfortable, especially as he and Westbrook fed off each other to run away from the Mavs. George has talked about rhythm and how he’s trying to get adjusted to playing with someone the caliber of Westbrook, and after a loss in Denver a week ago in which he took only one fourth quarter shot, the Thunder held a closed door meeting in the locker room to talk some things out. A big part of the message came from Westbrook and Anthony: They wanted George to be the star he is.

“Just having a talk with Russ and Melo, just having a sit down, and I just left everything on the table. ‘What do you guys need from me and what can I do better?'” George said. “And as you’ve seen over these past two games is where the direction of that convo went, and that was just to come out and be me, be special, on both ends, be aggressive and look to attack at every opportunity.”

On Sunday, even with Anthony sitting, it looked like it’s supposed to when stars as bright as George and Westbrook play together. It capped a nice Nov. 12 for Westbrook, a day the Thunder are now 4 1 on. So what did George get Westbrook for his birthday? As George always is on the court,
timberland shoes kids George lead Thunder to win against Mavericks
his answer was velvet smooth.

timberland edinburgh George De La Cruz found guilty of murder

timberland boots George De La Cruz found guilty of murder

AUSTIN (KXAN) After six days of testimony and nearly seven hours of deliberations, a Travis County jury returned a verdict more than five years in the making. George De La Cruz was found guilty Wednesday evening for the murder of Julie Ann Gonzalez, his estranged wife who disappeared in 2010 and has never been found.

A punishment phase will begin Thursday to determine an appropriate sentence for De La Cruz. The newly convicted murderer ever so slightly dropped his head when he heard the word from Judge Cliff Brown.

But despite the guilty verdict, Gonzalez mother, Sandra Soto, said it brings no closure and gives her no hope that De La Cruz might finally reveal what happened on March 26, 2010, when the 21 year old mother disappeared.

is a coward, said Soto, her eyes filled with tears after the verdict. has always been a coward. Gary Cobb said that in his experiences, guilty parties are unlikely to reveal information after a verdict. In the punishment phase, Cobb said the state will seek a sentence of life in prison for De La Cruz and would not entertain deals for a lenient sentence in exchange for information about Gonzalez fate.

A guilty verdict brings a sense of justice to the family, but not closure. Soto says it is still not the answer.

goal has always been to find Julie; that has always been the goal, said Soto. to convict George, but to find Julie. This isn about George I need to know where my daughter is. since Gonzalez disappearance in March 2010, the case has garnered national attention including an appearance on the Dr. Phil Show. In that episode, De La Cruz failed a polygraph test.

De La Cruz is on trial for the murder of his estranged wife who has not been seen since March 26, 2010. With no body and no murder weapon having ever been recovered, the state reminded jurors direct evidence is not required for a murder conviction. Instead, they asked the jury to consider all of the circumstantial evidence which included testimony of a troubled marriage, a new lover, cell phone and internet tracking, and an unexplained trench in De La Cruz’s backyard shed.

“All of those things by themselves don’t mean anything,” said prosecutor Gary Cobb. “But when you bring all that circumstantial evidence in together it means something. You can hide a body, but you cannot hide the truth.”

Continuing Coverage: George De La Cruz Murder Trial

Defense attorneys used their closing argument to emphasize the state’s burden of proving beyond reasonable doubt De La Cruz knowingly and intentionally killed Gonzalez and did it in Travis County. Attorney Robert McCabe said the state’s case had too many holes left to be filled.

“You convict based on facts. Not feelings. Not fantasy,” said McCabe. “When you convict on emotions, feelings, and fantasy, innocent people get convicted.”

Keith Lauerman, also part of the defense, shared with the jury the biggest reasons innocent people end up in prison. Those reasons included emotion, shifting the burden of proof to the defense and adopting the imagination of prosecutors.

“Emotion overrides our logic and the evidence we hear because we want to do something because we are emotional,” said Lauerman. “The reason innocent people get convicted is because juries do not follow the law.”

The defense said De La Cruz’s behavior and the timeline of events on March 26, 2010 make it implausible to think he committed the murder and disposed of the body in an area where it has yet to be found. Testimony heard earlier in the trial said De La Cruz had family at the home the night of Gonzalez’s disappearance.

“He invited people into a crime scene. This horrible crime has happened at his house and George acts completely normal? Cousins come over, they hang out all weekend?” said McCabe skeptically of the state’s narrative. “What patterns of his behavior changed? Are these actions of a murderer? Absolutely not.”

The state’s argument recalled testimony several witnesses gave painting a picture Julie Ann Gonzalez was a devoted mother who would never leave her 2 year old daughter Layla behind. She was also excited about the future with her new boyfriend, something they believe gave De La Cruz the motivation to kill.

“Who would have known Julie Ann’s choice in a man would prove to be fatal,” said prosecutor Monica Flores.

Evidence heard during the trial suggested someone was accessing Gonzalez’s cell phone after her disappearance and that it was happening in the vicinity of De La Cruz’s home. Other evidence seemed to point to De La Cruz possibly accessing her MySpace page and making postings in an effort to deceive.

“He had the intent to kill Julie Ann the moment that shovel hit the dirt,” said Flores.

De La Cruz’s internet and Xbox usage constituted a significant piece of the state’s case. Witnesses testified the defendant’s video game hobby was a major source of problems in his marriage to Gonzalez. Sandra Soto, Gonzalez’s mother, said he played even while his wife was going through contractions the day their daughter was born.

“Julie is hanging in there, she is in pain and this fool is over there playing on some game console. He could not even turn off the games to watch the birth of his daughter? Come on,” said Cobb.

The love of video games can also be used as evidence of De La Cruz’s role in Gonzalez’s murder according to the state. A wireless expert testified his Xbox usage compared to other days dropped considerably on March 26, 2010, the day Gonzalez disappeared.

“The only thing at that point that would make him put down those games is getting rid of Julie,” said Cobb.

Julie Ann Gonzalez mother testifies

Shedding tears before she even reached the witness stand, Sandra Soto testified about raising her daughter Julie Ann Gonzalez, the last days before she disappeared, and her hopeful yet desperate plea for her daughter safe return and answers to what happened five years ago.

Sweet, playful and a beautiful heart is how she described her daughter, who received a scholarship to attend St. Edward’s University. But after becoming pregnant, Gonzalez realized the necessity of a career job and dropped out of school to become a pharmacy tech at Walgreen’s.
