light blue timberland boots Julia Ullrich finds a home in musical theatre

Julia Ullrich is belting out “So Much Better” like someone auditioning for the lead in Legally Blonde the musical which is exactly what she’s doing.

Rhythm and lyrics are building to that one big, showstopping note, the high C over high heeled Jimmy Choos (in pink, of course).

The song, about landing an internship at a law firm, began: “Seeing my name in black and white, it’s like making love with you all night. No, wait! It feels so much better . . .”

It was coming. That “really giant note that’s super hard to sing.”

“I am so much better than . . . before!”

Ullrich got the part. Driving from her day job to the Michael J. Fox theatre in Burnaby for tech rehearsal, the former Seycove Secondary student reflects on Elle Woods, the Cosmo and effect character made famous by Reese Witherspoon.

“She’s kind of in her own world,” Ullrich explains. “Everything is given to her, she’s totally beautiful and has this super hot boyfriend and all of the things that anyone could want.”

But when her world view is upset (the super hot boyfriend dumps his Marilyn in search of a Jackie,) Woods is steadfast; blonde to the roots of her soul.

She has an assumption of success, Ullrich says, describing Woods’ mindset as: “I’m going to get the thing that I want, I’m going to do whatever I have to do . . . no problem.”

The Legally Blonde movie was not exactly burdened with praise upon release, with New Yorker critic David Denby calling Witherspoon: “a brilliant corsage bobbing in junk strewn waters.”

But there’s something about Woods’ refusal to be pushed from pink that resonates with viewers who routinely exhaust themselves with doubt.

“Sometimes we’re really good at talking ourselves out of things,” Ullrich says.

She speaks from experience, having once nearly talked herself out of a career in acting.

“I got a little bit conflicted towards the end of high school . . . ‘What should I do?’ ‘What’s the right thing?'”

She spent a year enrolled in science courses at UBC with her eye on a white coat and a stethoscope.

But it felt like a misstep, Ullrich says, explaining she wasn’t: “nearly as good at science as I thought I was.”

In an effort to take her mind off academics she’d also enrolled in a musical theatre class.

“I found a home there,” she recalls fondly.

Since then she’s battled Henry Higgins in My Fair Lady and endured the Diet Coke heads of Heathers: The Musical.

Having just graduated from UBC with a bachelor’s degree in education, playing a fellow university student in Woods feels somewhat timely, she says.

The musical’s choreography borrows liberally from the Broadway production, according to Ullrich, who explains that you can’t stray too far from the “poppy, super girly, cheerleaderesque thing.”

Head coach Todd McLellan even saw fit to give Khaira a look between Milan Lucic and Jesse Puljujarvi on the second line to start the last two games, a promotion few would have predicted when the year began.

I have confidence in myself bringing it out and doing things that I wouldn do at the beginning of the season. I happy with my growth so far. been a steady and much needed evolution for a team with a lot of holes to fill up front. That Khaira is able to play centre as well as wing provides even more options going forward.

But he is settling in nicely now, not just as a full time NHLer, but someone who seems ready to take on an expanded role with the team.

And with the season all but lost, the opportunity is presenting itself to really explore this situation and see what the high end of Khaira can be.

come into the season with a goal of just making the team, whether you play or (sit as an extra forward), said the six foot four, 215 pounder. moving forward throughout the season, there are little goals that you want to reach.

I want to be one of the guys who is a reliable player on this team. played plenty of centre in his career, Khaira brings the kind of versatility every coach likes to have up front.

I like supporting the puck in the middle and making plays coming out of the zone. the position is tougher up here, where opponents are much more capable of capitalizing on mistakes.

mens timberland sandals juice containers under bill introduced in Legislature

timberland europe juice containers under bill introduced in Legislature

Michigan’s 42 year old bottle deposit law could get an update under a bill introduced last week that would add water and juice bottles and cans to the list of containers subject to a 10 cent deposit.

“We need to increase our recycling rate in the state of Michigan. We’re falling behind,” said state Rep. Jon Hoadley, D Kalamazoo, the sponsor of the bill. “If we’re capturing more bottles,we’re keeping more things out of of our landfills and more trash off the road. And recycling saves energy.”

Since the bill was passed in 1976, Michiganders have paid the 10 cent deposit on bottles and cans for carbonated beverages, including beer, wine, wine coolers, soda pop, canned cocktails and mineral water, and about 97% of those containers have been returned for the dime refund.

The difference between the amount paid in deposits and the amount returned is captured by the state and 75% goes to a state environmental cleanup fund while 25% is returned to the retailers who sell the products.

The bill, which excludes milk products from the deposit, came in the same week that Gov. Rick Snyder announced plans to try and boost recycling efforts in the state, including providing recycling bins in all state facilities, expanding educational efforts to encourage recycling and reforming the state’s solid waste laws to slow the development of landfills in the state.

The proposal does not include a change in Michigan’s bottle deposit law.

“The governor said he wants to do more recycling and we want this to be something that he can lift up,” Hoadley said. “We know the bottle law works.”

timberland boots sale women judge says as she sentences Larry Nassar

LANSING, Mich. >> The former sports doctor who admitted molesting some of the nation top gymnasts for years was sentenced Wednesday to 40 to 175 years in prison as the judge declared: just signed your death warrant. sentence capped a remarkable seven day hearing in which scores of Larry Nassar victims were able to confront him face to face in a Michigan courtroom.

Judge Rosemarie Aquilina said Nassar to assault was precise, calculated, manipulative, devious, despicable. is my honor and privilege to sentence you. You do not deserve to walk outside a prison ever again. You have done nothing to control those urges and anywhere you walk, destruction will occur to those most vulnerable.

Povilaitis said.

Nassar turned to the courtroom gallery to make a brief statement, saying that the accounts of more than 150 victims had me to my core. He said words can describe how sorry he is for his crimes.

He faced a minimum prison term of 25 to 40 years.

One of the first athletes to accuse Nassar of sexual assault was the last victim to offer statements at his sentencing hearing.

Rachael Denhollander is a Kentucky lawyer who stepped forward in 2016 after the sports governing body was accused of mishandling complaints of sexual assault. She said Nassar groped, fondled and penetrated her with his hands when she was a 15 year old gymnast in Michigan.

Denhollander statements to Michigan State University police put the criminal investigation in high gear in 2016.

have become a man ruled by selfish and perverted desires, she told Nassar, who worked at the university and USA Gymnastics, the governing body that also trains Olympians.

Nassar, 54, pleaded guilty to assaulting seven people in the Lansing area, but the sentencing hearing has been open to anyone who said they were a victim. His accusers said he would use his ungloved hands to penetrate them, often without explanation, while they were on a table seeking help for various injuries.

The accusers, many of whom were children, said they trusted Nassar to care for them properly, were in denial about what was happening or were afraid to speak up. He sometimes used a sheet or his body to block the view of any parent in the room.

The judge was unsparing in her treatment of Nassar. Aquilina has praised the victims who have appeared in her court since Jan. 16, calling them survivors, while also assuring them that their perpetrator will pay. The women have included Olympians Aly Raisman, Jordyn Wieber and McKayla Maroney.

baby timberland boots Judge rules search warrants valid in Pigeon bribery case

timberland womens coats Judge rules search warrants valid in Pigeon bribery case

A State Supreme Court judge has rejected G. Steven Pigeon’s efforts to invalidate search warrants executed on his home, cellphone and email accounts in 2015 and 2016.

Pigeon argued the warrants were illegally altered and that the judge who signed them was politically biased against him.

Justice Donald F. Cerio Jr.’s ruling deals a blow to Pigeon’s effort to have the nine count indictment against him dismissed. Pigeon, 56, a well known political operative, was charged in June with two counts of bribery, one count of theft by extortion and six counts of rewarding official misconduct.

The charges are related to Pigeon’s alleged bribery of former State Supreme Court Justice John A. Michalek, who pleaded guilty to receiving a bribe in June. Michalek was forced to resign from the bench and still awaits sentencing.

Last August, Pigeon’s attorneys filed motions challenging the evidence and seeking dismissal of the entire indictment. Cerio heard arguments in the fall on roughly a dozen defense motions and last week issued a 25 page decision denying all of them in whole or in part, clearing the way for the case to head to trial.

In the hefty filing, defense attorney Paul J. Cambria Jr. centered most of his arguments on the legitimacy of the warrants used to search Pigeon’s waterfront condominium in May 2015, and to review the contents of his cellphone and gain access to his Google email accounts.

Cambria said that handwritten alterations made to the warrants after Erie County Judge Michael F. Pietruszka signed them made the documents invalid. The changes fixed the floor number for Pigeon’s condominium at Admiral’s Walk and noted that the warrant was for the “home,” not “home office.”

Cerio called the changes, initialed by the judge before the warrant was executed, legitimate corrections.

“The court finds that it is the written application which need be subscribed and sworn to by the requested officer, not the search warrant,” Cerio wrote in his decision.

Cerio said Pietruszka had the prerogative to correct the errors on the warrant.

Cerio also found no merit to the defense argument that Pietruszka made the warrants invalid himself merely by signing them. Pigeon has called Pietruszka a “political adversary,” and a defense motion questioned whether he was “neutral and detached,” as required by law.

The arguments reach back to the 1990s, when Pigeon, the Erie County Democratic Party chairman in 1996, did not endorse Pietruszka for State Supreme Court. Pigeon’s candidate won, but two years later, Pietruszka won election to Erie County Court. At that time Pigeon allegedly tried to get Pietruszka to pay a $20,000 consulting fee for someone he never hired. Pietruszka didn’t pay it and, Cerio notes, “This particular matter was apparently, according to the submissions, resolved amicably.”

Cerio said he could find “no showing that any perceived bias, prejudice or unworthy motive” inspired Pietruszka to sign the warrants, and that there was no basis for the judge to recuse himself because of “matters which had occurred some thirteen to twenty years earlier.”

Cerio also denied a defense motion to see the entire warrant application, which the Attorney General’s Office argues contains information that is sensitive to its ongoing investigation.

The judge also ruled that the warrants were not “overly broad,” as Cambria alleged.

The warrants sought “any and all documents and records, whether hard copy or in electronic form, relating to Steven Pigeon’s unlawful lobbying on behalf of Nick Sinatra and any documents and financial records, whether in hard copy or electronic form, relating to Steven Pigeon’s involvement with the Western New York Progressive Caucus.”

Cerio said that by including computers and computer related equipment, a warrant also covered Pigeon’s cellphone, which Cambria had tried to have treated as a separate search location deserving of its own warrant.

Cerio also denied motions to disallow the warrant Pietruszka signed to have Pigeon’s email recovered from Google servers in California, and to the minutes and proceedings from the grand jury that indicted Pigeon turned over to the defense.

The email messages and other material were used by prosecutors to build a case that Pigeon was staying in close contact with then Justice Michalek when the judge was hearing a case involving a company represented by Pigeon’s then law firm. The indictment alleges Michalek kept Pigeon apprised of the status of the lawsuits, engaged in ex parte communications with Pigeon about them, and made favorable rulings to protect the interests of Pigeon, his clients and his business associates.

Pigeon, in return, helped Michalek secure Buffalo Sabres tickets, offered to help a relative of the judge get a job, and promised to help Michalek get appointed to the Appellate Division of State Supreme Court. No such appointment ever happened.

timberland classic boat Judge rules against mobile home park owner

Residents in the Laguna Terrace Park Assn. will meet Friday to discuss the June 29 court decision that has left them in limboJudge Ronald L. Bauer ruled last month that the California Coastal Commission has final say over Laguna Terrace owner Steve Esslinger’s proposed subdivision of the property to convert it into a resident owned mobile home parkThe judge’s decision hinged on an unpermitted lot line adjustment in 1995 that the commission argued gave them jurisdiction over the landowner’s subdivision application a point Esslinger disputed”We would have been the beneficiaries if the court had ruled in Steve’s favor, but now we are in limbo,” said mobile home owner Peggy Ford. “Everyone is reeling.”

Members of the Laguna Terrace Park Assn. of mobile home owners were informed of the court decision on July 6 in an email from Boyce Belt, association president”At this moment, we do not have any word on any reaction from the park management other than, ‘We got our [expletive] kicked,'” Belt wrote. “We will be in discussion with them soon to determine what our next actions will be.”

Park Manager James Lawson had not returned phone calls from the Coastline Pilot as of Thursday. He has previously said that Esslinger would not appeal to the Coastal Commission”I was told if the court ruled in favor of the commission, Steve would pull out of the deal to sell us the park,” Belt said MondayThe mobile home park was listed on the commission’s closed session agenda for a meeting held Tuesday in Marin County”Two of our opponents are no longer on the commission,” Belt said. “I hope that will give the commission a new direction, but Penny Elia is still very active.”

Elia, a South Laguna resident speaking for the Sierra Club, was among the three names listed as communicators at the 2010 commission hearing where the decision was made that the proposed subdivision, approved by the City Council last year, was able to be appealed to the commissionPaul Esslinger, father of the property owner who has a long history of legal battles with his son, also supported the commission’s positionThe park owner challenged in court the commission’s decision that it has jurisdiction over the city’s approval of the subdivision of the park, which would allow the residents to buy the land under the mobile homesLaguna Terrace Park sits on 20 acres, split in 1995 from a 270 acre parcel, for which no coastal development permit was obtained.

timberland for babies Judge reduces bail for Maine woman charged in death of 4

Maine Superior Court Justice William R. Stokes has lowered bail for Shawna L. Gatto, the Wiscasset woman accused of the murder of her fiance’s 4 year old granddaughter, from $250,000 cash to $150,000 cash.

On Thursday, Stokes lowered Gatto’s bail during a hearing in Knox County Superior Court in Rockland.

Gatto’s attorney, Philip S. Cohen, argued for $100,000 surety bail, which would allow Gatto to post bail with real estate instead of cash. Cohen said Gatto is a low flight risk because her family lives in the area, including her mother.

If Gatto does make bail, she would remain under house arrest and would have to wear an ankle monitor, Stokes said. She would live with her mother in Wiscasset, as her bail conditions prohibit contact with her fiance.

She could only leave the home to go to medical appointments under the supervision of the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office. She could not have contact with children younger than 12.

[Wiscasset woman accused of killing 4 year old makes first court appearance]

The prosecutor, Assistant Attorney General John Alsop, said Gatto’s criminal record consists of a single conviction for shoplifting five years ago. Examinations of Gatto’s grandchildren, who were also in her care at the time of the girl’s death, did not show any injuries.

Gatto remains in custody at Two Bridges Regional Jail in Wiscasset.

Cohen said he might pursue another bail hearing after he receives discovery, or state’s evidence, from the Maine Attorney General’s Office.

Cohen and his co counsel, Jeremy Pratt, said the defense will gather more facts and await more information from the state. “We were essentially flying blind,” Cohen said of the bail hearing.

Gatto has been charged with depraved indifference murder in connection with the death of 4 year old Kendall Chick. She pleaded not guilty to the charge Jan. 12.

Chick lived with her grandfather, Stephen Hood, 53, and Gatto, her primary caregiver, at 19 Crickets Lane in Wiscasset. The Maine Department of Health and Human Services placed her in the home in January 2017.

The Wiscasset Ambulance Service responded to the home for a report of an unresponsive 4 year old girl the afternoon of Dec. 8. An ambulance crew brought Chick to Mid Coast Hospital in Brunswick, where she was pronounced dead.

Chick died of a blunt force injury to the abdomen that caused “lacerations of her pancreas” and other internal injuries, according to police reports. She also sustained blunt force trauma to the head and numerous other injuries, and showed signs of “chronic physiological stress.”

Pity the children.

Another family court judge has come out swinging against warring parents who waste money and court time taking their squabbles before a judge. In the latest instalment, Newmarket Superior Court Justice Heather McGee slammed a York region couple who together spent a $65,000 in legal fees just for an urgent motion to decide where their daughter should go to school.

the judge noted, her words dripping with exasperation.

After a number of scheduling errors, the judge agreed to hear the urgent motion on Sept. 1. Siding with the dad, McGee ruled the daughter should continue at her local school for the upcoming year.

Then came the question of costs. As the successful party, the father wanted his ex to cover his legal bill of $28,035; mom had already spent $37,509 on lawyers herself.

timberland footwear Judge keeps West Boca slaying suspect in jail before trial

Garry Pierre, 28, sits in a Palm Beach County courtroom on Oct. 27. He is charged with first degree murder in the July 30 shooting death of Christo “Sto” Maccius, 25. A judge Wednesday rescheduled Pierre’s trial to begin with jury selection March 13.

Garry Pierre, 28, sits in a Palm Beach County courtroom on Oct. 27. He is charged with first degree murder in the July 30 shooting death of Christo “Sto” Maccius, 25.

Garry Pierre, 28, has been in custody since his Aug. 7 arrest in the violent death of Christo “Sto” Maccius, 25, a week earlier.

The victim’s friends and loved ones attended Thursday’s court hearing on Pierre’s request to leave jail before his trial, which is scheduled to begin with jury selection Nov. 30.

Maccius’ supporters, including his parents, Steve and Alison Rubin, wore T shirts in a tribute to Maccius that read, “Never give up; We won’t fail; stostrong.”

Pierre’s attorney argued there’s no evidence his client killed Maccius outside O’Connor’s Pub Package Store, 9900 Sandalfoot Blvd. west of Boca Raton, and therefore should be released on a “reasonable” bail before his trial on a first degree murder charge.

The July 30 shooting outside O’Conner’s Pub at 9900 Sandalfoot Boulevard in West Boca, left Christo Maccius dead. July 30.

Simon said Pierre was at a Pompano Beach bar, Singers Karaoke Klub, when Maccius was shot. The attorney also provided sworn statements from two men who claimed they were with Pierre, to dispute other witness accounts.

But Assistant State Attorney Terri Skiles tried to raise doubts about the alibis,
timberland earthkeepers jacket Judge keeps West Boca slaying suspect in jail before trial
and showed the judge surveillance video from O’Connor’s that shows Pierre was inside the establishment before the shooting.

Garry Pierre, 28, is accused of the murder of Maccius.

.

The prosecutor also said Pierre is seen on video leaving O’Connor’s seven minutes before Maccius was gunned down in the parking lot.

Kurt Lipinski, the lead Palm Beach County Sheriff’s detective on the case, testified Pierre gave him a statement admitting to being in the bar that night, but not being responsible for the slaying.

Detectives identified Pierre as the prime suspect, with the nicknames “Gucci” and “Gudda,” after receiving tips and reviewing Facebook profiles.

Two of Maccius’ friends, police officers Andrew Reynolds and Torrence Kearney, said they were at the bar when Maccius told them he recognized a man who was staring at him from a fight the two had four years ago, Lipinski said, citing a motive for the killing.

Reynolds, a 26 year old Coconut Creek police officer, testified it was Pierre who was staring at Maccius, and he was with Maccius at the same bar a week earlier when Pierre was also present. Maccius’ friends said they got to Kearney’s Dodge Charger and heard gunfire.

Reynolds testified he looked over to see Pierre shoot Maccius, then run away.

“I watched him do it,” Reynolds said. “There’s no doubt.”

Kearney, a Riviera Beach police officer, also testified Thursday that he had “no doubt” Pierre killed his friend.

After investigators shared surveillance images with the media, tips quickly led detectives to Pierre and two of his Facebook profiles.

black timberland Judge Dismisses CREW Emoluments Lawsuit on Technical Grounds

federal judge dismissed a lawsuit Thursday alleging that President Trump violated the Constitution’s emoluments clause because his hotels and restaurants do business with foreign governments while he is in office.

The plaintiffs argued that because Trump properties rent out hotel rooms and meeting spaces to other governments, the president was violating a constitutional provision that bans the acceptance of foreign emoluments, or gifts from foreign powers.

But Judge George B. Daniels of the Southern District of New York ruled that the plaintiffs, led by the government watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), lacked standing to bring such a case, saying it was up to Congress to prevent the president from accepting emoluments.

CREW said it plans to appeal the verdict.

“As the only political branch with the power to consent to violations of the Foreign Emoluments Clause, Congress is the appropriate body to determine whether, and to what extent, Defendant’s conduct unlawfully infringes on that power,” Daniels wrote in his ruling.

The suit was one of the most high profile efforts to take aim at Trump’s decision to hold onto his hotel and golf course business while in the White House. However, the president faces similar suits: one filed by a group of congressional Democrats and another filed by the attorneys general of Maryland and the District.

After the ruling, CREW issued a statement saying that “while today’s ruling is a setback, we will not walk away from this serious and ongoing constitutional violation. The Constitution is explicit on these issues, and the president is clearly in violation.”

The group’s suit, filed three days after Trump’s inauguration, alleged that the president had violated a little known, never tested provision of the Constitution known as the foreign emoluments clause. Written to prevent early America’s diplomats and officials from being swayed by gifts from wealthier nations, the provision bars officeholders from accepting a “present [or] emolument from any King, Prince or foreign state.”

CREW charged that Trump was violating the emoluments provision because his company continued to do business and seek benefits from foreign governments after he became president, including by leasing space to foreign entities in Trump Tower and renting ballrooms for embassy functions at the Trump hotel in Washington.

The lawsuit also alleged that Trump probably had violated another constitutional provision, the domestic emoluments clause, which bars presidents from taking payments other than their salary from individual states. Several state government officials have stayed at Trump’s Washington hotel or eaten at its BLT Prime steakhouse since Trump’s election.

The Justice Department, representing Trump, argued that CREW and its co plaintiffs lacked the standing to sue the president because none of them had been injured by his actions.

Government lawyers also argued that the country’s founders didn’t intend to stop presidents from selling things such as hotel rooms and banquet halls to foreign governments. official intended to buy favorable treatment.

During a court hearing Oct. 18 in Manhattan, Daniels seemed skeptical of that narrow definition. What if a foreign government wildly overpaid as a way of disguising a gift as a legitimate business transaction? he asked. He conjured up a hypothetical in which Trump owned a hot dog stand.

“That might be a present,” said government lawyer Brett Shumate.

Ultimately, however, Daniels ruled that the emoluments issue was meant for policymakers, not the courts, to decide.

The lawsuit filed by the attorneys general in June also asks a federal judge to order that Trump stop violating the provision. In that case, the plaintiffs use a different logic to argue why they have standing to sue. They say that the District and Maryland have lost money because of Trump’s businesses, because the District owns a convention center and Maryland takes in tax revenue from a convention center and casino.

timberland youth boots Judge denies motion to remove Strother from Twin Peaks shootout cases

timberland careers Judge denies motion to remove Strother from Twin Peaks shootout cases

A visiting judge on Monday denied a motion from McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reynas office to remove 19th State District Judge Ralph Strother from presiding over two Twin Peaks shootout cases.

Noting that Strother already has voluntarily recused himself in one Twin Peaks case when he thought it was the right thing to do but he declined to do so in these cases, Judge Phillip Vick, of Denton County, denied the states motion.

The judge also denied defense motions seeking sanctions against Reynas office on the grounds its recusal motions were filed in bad faith and only for the purpose of delaying a defense hearing to disqualify Reyna from prosecuting bikers Jorge Salinas and Billy McCree, both members of the Cossacks motorcycle group.

Prosecutors Michael Jarrett and Brody Burks, who filed the motions to remove the judge last week, declined comment after the hearing. They filed the recusal motions only after Strother denied a state motion to delay the hearing and with witnesses with adverse testimony against Reyna waiting in the hallway.

Fort Worth attorneys Brian Bouffard and David Conrad Beyer, who represent Salinas and McCree, respectively, said the motion from Reynas office obviously was filed only to postpone a hearing on a motion to disqualify Reyna, a hearing at which Reyna and his assistants and former Reyna assistants were subpoenaed to testify. Feb. 8 before Strother.

While it was clear from the second it was filed that the district attorneys recusal motion was only for purposes of delay, we are, nevertheless, pleased that Judge Vick was able to see through Abelino Reynas charade,
timberland youth boots Judge denies motion to remove Strother from Twin Peaks shootout cases
the lawyers said in a statement. Any fair minded person must ask themselves why Mr. Reyna is so desperate to delay the truth about his actions from being brought to light.

The victims of the Twin Peaks incident and their families deserve justice. Those falsely charged in the Twin Peaks incident by Mr. Reyna in order to advance his own career deserve their days in court. And, McLennan County citizens deserve answers from Mr. Reyna. Those answers should be under oath and penalty of perjury given that the brave whistle blowers who have come forward did so in sworn affidavits which would subject them to perjury prosecution for false statements, they said.

Burks and Jarrett argued that they filed the motion to recuse Strother because two other judges had recused Strother in four other Twin Peaks cases and Strother agreed to recuse himself in a fifth. That appearance alone, they argued, could cause the man on the street to question his impartiality.

In the past, both prosecutors have opposed recusal motions against Strother filed by the defense, arguing that Strothers fairness and character are beyond reproach.

Reyna did not attend Mondays hearing and was not present last week when the recusal motion was filed. The state called no witnesses at the hearing, relying on briefs and arguments.

Brouffard and Beyer not only opposed the recusal motions, they sought sanctions against the DAs office for $2,000 in lodging and subpoena service expenses they and others incurred when last weeks hearing was canceled.

The attorneys asked why prosecutors waited last week until Strother denied their motion to postpone the Reyna disqualification hearing before filing the recusal motion if they truly thought Strother should be removed from the cases.

Vick asked why the motion only pertains to McCree and Salinas, prompting Burks to say that if he granted the states motion to recuse Strother, the state would file similar motions to recuse him in the remaining 70 or so Twin Peaks cases remaining in 19th State District Court.

Burks argued the state needed the continuance because it was given insufficient notice for the disqualification hearing. But Brouffard and Beyer countered that it was clear they only asked to recuse Strother so the disqualification hearing might be postponed until after the March 6 Republican primary, in which Reyna is opposed by Barry Johnson.

Former Reyna first assistant Greg Davis, retired police detective Sherry Kingrey and Waco attorney Brittany Scaramucci were waiting to testify last week at the hearing.

All have submitted sworn statements that said Reyna operates a two tiered justice system in his office that gives preferential treatment to his friends and donors,

that Reynas close friends were implicated in an illegal gambling operation Kingrey was investigating and that one of Scaramuccis clients delivered cocaine to Reyna.

timberland outlet store locations uk Judge boots lawyer for former Dale Chihuly worker off case

SEATTLE A federal judge has disqualified a well known Seattle attorney and her law firm from representing a man who says glass artist Dale Chihuly failed to credit him for artistic contributions.

Attorney Anne Bremner was representing Michael Moi, who worked for Chihuly for about 15 years. Moi sued Chihuly last spring, saying that Moi and others collaborated on many pieces that Chihuly sold for millions of dollars, but he never received credit or promised compensation. He is seeking millions of dollars. District Judge Robert Lasnik removed Bremner from the case this week at the request of Chihuly lawyers, who argued that she previously represented others who sued the artist. During those cases, they said, she obtained confidential information about Chihuly operations including attorney client communications to which Moi isn entitled.

The lawyers also objected to Bremner and her firm, Frey Buck, announcing in a news release that Chihuly had confidentially settled similar cases she brought against him for sums. counsel initial access to the privileged information may not have been wrongful, there is no dispute regarding its privileged nature, the judge wrote in an order Wednesday. can there be any dispute that counsel has knowingly used confidential information obtained through prior litigation to argue Moi case in the media or that they intend to use the information they obtained to benefit Moi in his litigation. and his wife, Leslie Chihuly, who runs his studio, have adamantly denied that Moi did any artistic work for him. They said Moi was hired as a contract handyman to perform cleaning, repair and light construction tasks. In February, before filing the lawsuit, Moi threatened to disclose information about Chihuly mental health he suffers from bipolar disorder unless Chihuly paid him.

Chihuly,
timberland for babies Judge boots lawyer for former Dale Chihuly worker off case
who began working with glass in the 1960s, is a pioneer of the glass art movement. Known for styles that include vibrant seashell like shapes, baskets, chandeliers and ambitious installations in botanical gardens and museums, he has long acknowledged that he works with teams of glassblowers and other artists. But the final artworks are his vision, his studio says.

Chihuly Studio said it did not have any comment on the ruling.

Bremner, who frequently appears as a legal analyst on cable news channels, has handled several high profile cases, including working on behalf of Amanda Knox, the American exchange student from Seattle who spent about four years in an Italian prison before being exonerated in the 2007 killing of her roommate.

In a text message, Bremner said she wasn immediately available to discuss the case. Ted Buck, a founder of the law firm, said the information Bremner obtained through the prior cases fell into a grey area: not clear that it was privileged material, and it not clear it wasn privileged material. he said, the firm respected Lasnik decision even if it disagreed. Bremner did not plan to appeal, given that judges have broad discretion over whether to disqualify a lawyer, and she was working on finding new representation for Moi.

The judge also ordered Bremner and the firm to return any confidential materials to Chihuly legal team and to refrain from disseminating it further.

cheapest timberland boots Judge allows plea deal that dismisses sex abuse charges against former Maine deputy

timberland cargo pants Judge allows plea deal that dismisses sex abuse charges against former Maine deputy

ROCKLAND, Maine A plea deal accepted Friday allows a former Lincoln County sheriff’s deputy to avoid retrial on 20 sexual assault charges in exchange for pleading guilty to a single misdemeanor count of providing a place for minors to consume alcohol.

Kenneth L. Hatch III, 47, of Whitefield entered his plea Friday to the charge just filed Thursday in Lincoln County Superior Court before Superior Court Justice William R. Stokes in Knox County Superior Court.

Stokes dismissed the 20 counts with prejudice, meaning Hatch cannot be tried on them again, and assessed the mandatory $1,000 fine. Assistant Attorney General John Risler, who prosecuted the original case against Hatch, asked for a 10 day suspended sentence, but Stokes said that was not an option and did not sentence Hatch to any jail time.

One of three alleged victims, who read a victim impact statement in the courtroom, said she was angry at the outcome. She said Hatch was “a monster” who betrayed her, leaving her fearful and suffering from panic attacks.

In November, jurors in Kennebec County found Hatch, 47, not guilty of two counts of sexual abuse of a minor and furnishing marijuana to a minor but said they were hung on the other 20 charges of sexual crimes involving three teenagers, some in his cruiser while on duty.

Stokes declared a mistrial on the remaining charges, which included sexually abusing three teenagers when they were younger than 16 and one when she was 6 and providing marijuana to them.

“He agreed to accept the misdemeanor for furnishing a place for minors to consume alcohol because he agreed to let his kids drink alcohol on his property, and obviously he knew other kids were there,” Elliott said Thursday. “He thought it would be safer to do it on his property than for them to be out driving around.”

One of three victims and the mother of another told Stokes on Friday they were angry and disappointed about the resolution of the case.

“Even though I knew coming forward would be hard and [do] irreversible damage to my family, I wanted to do the right thing,” one said, her voice shaking as she added that her family was “manipulate[d]” and she eventually grew addicted to opiates.

“It’s not fair,” she said. “I didn’t deserve any of this. I feel it’s unfair to not let us take him back to court we should have had a say this judgment gives a message that a police officer can touch a child for his own sexual gratification and get away from it.”

The mother of another alleged victim read her daughter’s statement, saying that even though she has moved away from Maine, “I will continue to live in fear because he’s still out there.”

Lynn Talbot, victim/witness advocate for Knox County, said neither the third alleged victim nor her mother thought they could speak on Friday.

Talbot, crying, told Stokes, “I worked with them for a very long time. This was very much a family betrayal the harm was significant.”

But Stokes said the original jury was “excellent” and had been “very severe[ly] deadlocked,” and a new trial would have been “very difficult.”

Because Hatch has been convicted of a misdemeanor, he will lose his certification from the criminal justice academy.

Risler said following the sentencing that the likelihood of convincing another jury of guilt beyond a possible doubt was small.

“The option I had to protect the people of Maine was to remove his ability to serve in law enforcement,” Risler said. “When he loses his certification from the criminal justice academy, it’s very unlikely he would ever be able to serve in law enforcement outside of Maine [either].”

Attorney General Janet Mills issued a statement on Friday afternoon, noting that prosecutors do believe the alleged victims.

“We support the victims, these brave survivors,” Mills wrote. “We believe them. Unfortunately, the jury did not find beyond a reasonable doubt that Mr. Hatch was guilty of these crimes. Fortunately, he will never work in law enforcement again.”

timberland wallets Journalism Professors Create a Portrait of Ruth Bader Ginsburg in New Documentary

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (LAW’59) turns 85 in March but has the energy of someone half her age. She works out twice a week with a trainer in the Supreme Court gym, doing pushups and planks, and lifting weights; travels extensively for speaking engagements and opera festivals, and had a small speaking role in a 2016 Washington National Opera production of The Daughter of the Regiment.

This January, she was a star at the Sundance Film Festival, where she watched the premiere of RBG, a documentary about her life that was co directed by Betsy West, Fred W. Friendly Professor of Professional Practice in Media and Society at Columbia’s Journalism School, and Julie Cohen (JRN’89), an adjunct in the school’s documentary program.

On Feb. 11, Ginsburg came to Columbia for an Alumni Association sponsored women’s conference called “She Opened the Door,” where she was interviewed by CNN’s Poppy Harlow (CC’05). in mathematics. Circuit in 1980 and the Supreme Court in 1993. She founded the Women’s Rights Project at the American Civil Liberties Union in 1972 and was the first woman to be a tenured professor at Columbia Law School, where she taught from 1972 until 1980.

She wasthe second woman named to the Supreme Court, after Sandra Day O’Connor, and today is the longest serving Justice. She survived two cancers without missing a day on the bench and has said she will continue to “do this job as long as I can do it at full steam.”

“Had she not been a Supreme Court Justice, she would still have a big place in history for what she did for women’s rights and for gender equality,” said West. “Her Supreme Court chapter makes it all the more relevant today.”

The documentary begins with Ginsburg looking straight into the camera as she quotes 19th century abolitionist and feminist Sarah Moore Grimk, “I ask no favor for my sex. All I ask of our brethren is that they take their feet off our necks,” words she also quoted in her 1993 Senate confirmation hearing, after she was asked about her views on women’s rights.

In her nearly 25 years on the Supreme Court, Ginsburg has become known for her impassioned dissents in cases involving equal pay, voting rights, access to contraception, and abortion rights, among other things. She came to be widely embraced as the Notorious RBG, the title of a 2015 biography inspired by a fan blog on Tumblr.

“She’s this huge icon, people really love her, yet there’s this amazing back story that people just don’t know, even her big fans don’t understand the history,” said Cohen. “The other part of the story that people don’t know is a love story,” added West. “She had a surprisingly supportive husband whom she married as a very young woman, who was successful in his own right but ultimately stepped back from his career when it became clear that she was on a trajectory to become a federal judge and possibly a Justice.”

West and Cohen, both documentary filmmakers who each had interviewed Ginsburg for other projects, decided more than three years ago to make a film about her life. In producing the film, they interviewed more than two dozen of Ginsburg’s friends, associates and family members, as well as former President Bill Clinton, who nominated her to the Supreme Court in 1993, and Senator Orrin Hatch (R Utah), who was the ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee at the time.

Ginsburg’s children,

Jane Ginsburg, the Morton L. Janklow Professor of Literary and Artistic Property Law at Columbia Law School, and James, a classical music producer in Chicago, are also interviewed, recalling what she was like as a mother. There are home movies and still photos from Ginsburg’s early years, photos and video with her husband, Martin, who died in 2010, and footage of her public appearances.

How West and Cohen got access to a Supreme Court Justice and the people around her is a lesson in perseverance. When they first approached Ginsburg with a proposal, the reply was in effect, “Thank you very much for this idea, but not yet.” Because she didn’t say “no,” they began having informal conversations with people around her to try to reframe the proposal.

A few months later, in 2015, they wrote Ginsburganother letter with a more specific proposal. “We basically said we don’t need to bother you right away for an interview, but we’d love to start talking to your former colleagues and friends and putting together the full picture of your life,” West recalled. They included a list of people they wanted to speak with. Ginsburg replied that she might be ready for an interview in two years and added a few names to their list. “We took that as a kind of green light, a flashing green light,” said West.

They got development funding, and later full support, from CNN Films. Amy Entelis (JRN’79), an executive vice president of CNN Worldwide, is an executive producer of the documentary.

Ginsburg did sit down for an interview in 2017, and also allowed them to film her at the gym, watching operas, and in her home, where the documentary shows her working at her desk and looking at family photographs with her granddaughter.

Ginsburg burst out laughing when the filmmakers showed her clips of Kate McKinnon portraying her on Saturday Night Live, which she had not seen before. She opens a closet to show them the decorative collars she wears with her black judicial robe one for majority opinions and another for dissents.

West and Cohen sat across the aisle while Ginsburg watched their film for the first time at Sundance; she hadn’t asked to see it before. When it started, with the overture to Rossini’s Barber of Seville in the background, they heard her whisper to the friend sitting next to her, “Well, I like the music.” They watched as she laughed, and occasionally dabbed her eyes with a tissue. In a question and answer session afterward, Ginsburg said she was moved by the film.

The film ends with a clip from Ginsburg’s 1993 confirmation hearing. “The spirit of liberty that imbues our constitution must reside first and foremost in the hearts of the men and women who compose this great nation, a community where the least shall be heard and considered side by side with the greatest,” she said, quoting Learned Hand, a renowned federal judge of the early 20th century. “I will keep that wisdom in the front of my mind as long as I am capable of judicial service,” Ginsburg added.

St. Joseph’s beat Eureka 3 1 at Paul Berra Memorial Field by turning a one goal deficit into a one goal lead within 10 minutes on opportunistic goals by Courtney Benning and Kassie Flynn.

PHOTO GALLERY: St. Joseph’s vs. Eureka

The defending state champion Angels (22 0), who pushed their winning streak to 39 games, got a game clinching goal in the 56th minute from Kelly McLaughlin off Tess Aiello’s second assist of the game.

St. Joseph the No.

Eureka (19 4 2), the 2013 state champion, withstood an initial onslaught by St. Joseph’s that featured five early shots and took its 1 0 lead against the run of play.

Abby Pulliam broke free for a shot that was saved by St. Joseph’s goalkeeper Kelsey Ponder and pushed off the post, but Jessica Haller followed up and finished the chance to put the Wildcats in front.

What could have been a frustrating situation for the Angels instead seemed to ignite a response.

“What we were so proud of our girls was they didn’t freak out,” Angels coach Maureen McVey said. “I was like, ‘What, there’s how many more minutes left in the game?’ And we saw what was happening, so we knew we were going to get our opportunities. I didn’t think we’d tie it up as fast,
timberland long boots Joseph's surrenders early goal
but they did.”

Just more than four minutes after falling behind, St. Joseph’s tied the game 1 1 on a goal similar to Eureka’s opener. Benning crashed the goal off the left wing and finished the rebound of a shot by Aiello that had been saved by Eureka goalkeeper Erin Roth.

The Angels broke the tie in the 18th minute on Flynn’s goal. The senior won a battle against a Eureka defender about 40 yards from goal, broke in all alone and finished her chance for the game winning goal.

“I missed the first one I got,” said Flynn, who had one of her team’s early chances when the game was scoreless. “Then I was like, ‘I better put this one in or my butt’s going to be on the bench.’ ”

The Wildcats also were causing St. Joseph’s some discomfort during a stretch of the second half that ended with McLaughlin’s goal in the 56th minute. Still, they got two corner kicks in a quick sequence not long after while continuing to stay in the game.

But a two goal deficit was too big of a mountain to climb, especially considering the opponent.

“You get one of them quick, they come back with everything they have and that’s exactly what they did,” Eureka coach Gary Schneider said. “We just didn’t hold on.”

timberland bomber jacket Jose Alfredo Ruiz’s cocaine cowboy boots hit the auction block

Back in 2007, the FBI busted two meth dealers in Burnsville and went through their ledger. They found a debt owed by Jose Alfredo Ruiz, the owner of El Primo in St. Paul, for $17,000 worth of drugs.

[jump] Ruiz was trying to wipe out his debt by moving a little cocaine. He arranged to buy five kilos with what turned out to be an FBI source. When Ruiz stored the coke amongst boxes of cowboy boots in the store’s basement, the entire inventory became subject to seizure when Ruiz was arrested by the Metro Gang Strike Force in 2008.

While Ruiz was sentenced to six years in prison, his merchandise languished in police custody while the Metro Gang Task Force was being investigated for a host of charges, including excessive force and stealing seized property. Though the task force was dismantled in 2009, the probe ended in September with no charges filed.

Which means the doors have been thrown open on the rootin’ tootin’ treasure trove of El Primo’s Western wear. And it ain’t just a bunch of dime store coveralls, neither.

No Fools, No Fun

It isn easy keeping up with Norah Jones. But it always worth the effort. Including this time. The eclectic Grammy winner latest musical detour after a pop album with Danger Mouse, a country disc with Little Willies and an Everly Brothers tribute with Billie Joe Armstrong retraces her steps back toward the rootsy end of the spectrum. Joined by Sasha Dobson and Catherine Popper, Jones digs into a mixed bag of country, folk and Americana fare, including classics by everyone from Roger Miller and Tom Paxton to Neil Young and Wilco, along with a few like minded originals. Better still, they all decorated with twangy minimalism and close honky tonk harmonies a la Pistol Annies minus the trailer trash trappings. No foolishness, indeed. But enough fun to make you hope they keep it up.

Now they really getting somewhere. After taking the whole hipster indie rock duo thing about as far as they could on their first two albums, Kingston singer guitarist Paul Saulnier and drummer Benjamin Nelson light out for new terrain with their third album. By expanding not only their horizons but also their studio lineup with a synth bassist and keyboard player and continuing their quest to augment their mighty wall of guitar onslaught, ramshackle crash bash and yelping deal breaker vocals with more focused songwriting and stylistic variety they end up with their most expansive and listenable disc to date. Don be left behind.

‘Weird Al’ YankovicMandatory? No. But formulaic? No doubt. Yankovic 14th full length delivers the same assortment of kitschy pop chart parodies as ever Iggy Azalea Fancy becomes the home repairman theme Handy; Lorde Royals is now an ode to Foil; Robin Thicke Blurred Lines polices Word Crimes, and so on along with the usual double time polka mini medley and an epi rock closing track. If that sounds like your idea of good time, dive right in.

Mary of Magdala and The Serpent. Here, it was trickier cos we didnt have time to establish the guides they had to pop in and hit the ground running. So we created a little greek chorus of J pop chicks, very Shinjuku fashion each with a distinct flavor : from gothic Lolita to andro camouflage chick to babydoll cutie.”>

The audience is lured to the Courtyard, where Act 2 unfolds. Most of the show is spent here 5 scenes in total, beginning in 1851 in the Parisian nunnery (cue candlelight, handbells and wimples rosaries prayerbooks galore) and ending in the here and now.

As the act begins, the cloister is abuzz because the nuns have heard that there’s a letter from Malaya requesting Nuns, to start a convent, for the purpose of. (Trivia : the letter was written by Father Beurel of SJI fame) They all pray that it might be them that gets to go.(Note the handbell girls kneeling in the background ? They flank the courtyard and provide a truly delightful tintinnabulation during the cloistral numbers!)

Juxtaposition is fun! In this number “Did You Hear?”, the rapping chorus and the nuns alternate while sharing the space. I LIKE!

Fast forward to the Sea Nuns Mother Pauline and 4 young nuns set off, and the chorus sings a ballad (quite possibly everyone’s favorite song I’m so glad we tried the ballad form its hauntingly poignant and sadly beautiful. The repeated refrain is :

The journey started out so well

The day began with clear blue skies

The journey started out so well

The sisters began with hope in their eyes.

Theatrically speaking, this is one of my favorite moments. 2 of the nuns carry a carpet bag, from which 4 huge linen sails are pulled (like a magic trick) and suddenly, there is a SHIP ! Just a diamond of sails catching the wind, held in place by the 4 nuns, captained by Mother Pauline. So simple, so striking, so richly symbolic of how the mission depended SO entirely on the 5 of them that they literally were the ship.
