I’ve been pondering on the different clothing styles you see here. All the Muslim women around wear something on their heads. But the similarities stop there. Older women usually wear long sleeve gowns which fall to their ankles. The material can be polyester or something natural, and some gowns are baggy sacks, some are graciously […]

One of three longtime employees of the Roseville Area Youth Hockey Association accused of pocketing thousands of dollars in cash from the Roseville Bingo Hall has admitted to the criminal conduct, according to her attorney. Bonnie Jean Harwell, 69, pleaded guilty last week in Ramsey County District Court to one count of aiding and abetting felony-level theft. Harwell’s attorney, Daniel Guerrero, said his client felt compelled to steal from the bingo hall because her boss and co-defendant in the case, April Borash, instructed her to do so to help support her gambling habit. The Roseville Area Youth Hockey Association shares the operation of the bingo hall with the Midway Speed Skating Club. “(My client) did not really benefit financially from taking the money, although she did take it,” Guerrero said. “Most of it went to April … She knows that what she did was wrong and she feels horrible about it and she wanted to take responsibility and put this behind her.” In exchange for her plea, prosecutors agreed to grant Harwell a stay of adjudication when she’s sentenced in June, Guerrero said. That means her felony conviction will drop to a misdemeanor on her criminal record assuming she abides by all the terms of her probation. Prosecutors also agreed to cap any jail time she receives to less than five days. Harwell, Borash and Borash’s daughter, Lea Vogelsang, were implicated in the theft-scheme last January after one of their former colleagues expressed concerns about missing money to one of the hockey association’s board members, according to the criminal complaints filed in the case. They are accused of failing to record sales of coupon books sold at the bingo hall and pocketing the revenue instead, exploiting what is described in charging documents as a lax record-keeping system. The coupons could be purchased to reduce the cost to play pull tabs at the bingo hall. While all three are charged with felony-level theft, Borash also faces a charge of theft by swindle. When interviewed by law enforcement, Borash initially said she took only enough money to reimburse herself for money she fronted to the organization, but she later admitted to stealing between $5,000 and $10,000 to help support her gambling problem, court records say.

Borash’s attorney did not respond to a request for comment. She has yet to enter a plea in her case. Her next court date is later this month. Vogelsang intends to plead not guilty, according to her attorney, Thomas Kelly. Her next court date is in May.

Die Gebrauchtwoche 15. – 21. April Disaster Porn ist ähnlich wie Herdprämie für die staatlich alimentierte Hausfrauenehe ein Begriff, der Kritikern gesellschaftlicher Missstände von den Kritisierten um die Ohren gehauen wird. Katastrophenpornografie bezeichnet nämlich den Hang vieler Medien, die Zahl der freigeräumten Sendezeit und Zeitungsseiten von Opferzahlen und Knalleffekten abhängig zu machen. Deshalb schaffen es […]

An example for hyperreal is Billie Jean by Micheal Jackson. The drums were played live in a single take. The bass guitar and strings are doubled with synthesizers to make richer and stranger timbres. The vocals include multiple layers of Michael Jackson’s voice. An example for a realistic is My Bonnie by The Beatles. You […]
