Sharon Carson | This week marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall rebellion in New York City, which began as a citizen uprising against constant police harassment.  On June 28th, 1969, at a gay bar called the Stonewall Inn, a wonderfully motley crew, in the “motley pride” sense of the word, declared that enough was […]

DESTIN, Fla. (CNN Newsource) – An Indiana mom is issuing a warning to beach-goers along the Gulf Coast. She says her 12-year-old daughter contracted a flesh-eating disease during a trip to Florida. What was supposed to be a fun family vacation… “Have a blast and enjoy the warm weather and the beach,” Michelle Brown said. …quickly took a turn for the worse. “Monday, we wake up to begin our day, and Kylie wakes up and she has pain in her calf on her right leg.” Assuming it may just be a charlie horse, they went on about their day. The next day, Kylie’s pain reached an unusual high, crippling her from walking. As they made their way back to Indianapolis, Brown called her doctor for an immediate appointment. “They notice she’s in extreme pain but they can’t really determine what it is that’s going on,” she said. Doctors noticed a pocket of infection behind Kylie’s knee, making her condition critical. She was diagnosed with necrotizing fasciitis — a very rare flesh-eating disease. “They were taking her into emergency surgery, trying to remove the infection from her leg,” Brown said. “In doing that, they were trying to save her leg and save her.” Brown says she hopes her story resonates with parents and that they’ll be careful this summer as they prepare for many beach-filled days. “There are warning signs but by the time you are seeing the warning signs, it’s running rampant in your body and it does damage very, very quickly.” Kylie is now home but she has a long road ahead. She can’t walk right now but after several surgeries and months of therapy, she should be back to normal.

DESTIN, Fla. (WKRG) — A family vacation remembered — for all of the wrong reasons. A 12-year-old Indiana girl contracted a rare flesh-eating disease at the beach in Destin a few weeks ago. It’s a nightmare this mom just can’t believe she’s living. One minute her baby girl is healthy and moving as normal. The next, she’s in the hospital having multiple surgeries and fighting for her life. What was supposed to be a family fun vacation, “going in hopes to have a blast and enjoy the warm weather and the beach,” said mother Michelle Brown. Quickly turned for the worst. “Going to bed on a Sunday and your daughter’s fine and then waking up on Monday morning and she’s sick,” said Brown. Brown says when they arrived in Destin, on June 7th. It stormed the first few days of their vacation.Luckily, the storms passed allowing them to save their trip. And finally, hit the beach. “The waves were extremely high. Too dangerous to get in the water. They had people patrolling the beach to keep people out of the water. We were only allowed to get in ankle deep.” Making the best out of the situation, they did just that. But what happens next rocked their world. “Monday, we wake up to begin our day and Kylei wakes up and she has pain in her calf on her right leg,” said Brown. Assuming it may just be a charlie horse, they went on about their day. The next day, Kylie’s pain reached an unusual high. Crippling her from walking. “At that point, I had to put her on my back and carry her around.” As they made their way back to Indianapolis, Brown called her doctor for an immediate appointment. “They notice she’s in extreme pain, but they can’t really determine what it is that’s going on.” The doctor then asked Brown to go home, pack a bag and take Kylei to the ER. Between that time Kylei’s condition escalated. “As they were doing the MRI, on her calf, they started to notice the infection had started spreading and running pretty rapidly through her body,” said Brown. Doctors noticed a pocket of infection was behind Kylei’s knee, making her condition, critical. Kylei was diagnosed with necrotizing fasciitis, a very rare flesh-eating disease. “They were taking her into emergency surgery trying to remove the infection from her leg. and doing that, they were trying to save her leg and save her because the infection was moving so rapidly,” said Brown. Days of surgeries and many months of therapy ahead, just so Kylei can learn how to walk again. Brown says she hopes her story resonates with parents to be careful this summer, as you prepare for many beach-filled days. “There are warning signs. but the time you are seeing the warning signs it’s running rampant in your body and it does damage very, very quickly,” said Brown. Kylei is now home, she tells me this was one of the most traumatic experiences ever. Her mom says she hurt herself on a skateboard before leaving for Destin and she believes that’s how she contracted this disease.

QUESTA, N.M. (KRQE) – It’s only June, but U.S. Capitol workers are going Christmas tree shopping in northern New Mexico. This year, it’s New Mexico’s turn to supply a giant tree for Capitol Hill. “I need to know my distance to the tree,” said a U.S. Forest Service worker. USFS workers are hard at work in the Carson National Forrest near Questa, trying to figure out how big this tree is. “This tree is 49 feet tall,” said the USFS worker. Sadly, this tree is coming up short—almost 21 feet short of what they’re looking for. “We’re selecting the 2019 US Capitol Christmas tree,” said Jim Kaufmann, Director of Capitol Grounds and Arboretum. This year, the USFS picked New Mexico to find a Christmas tree grand enough for the west lawn at the U.S. Capitol. But in this forest, they’re having a tough time finding the perfect tree. “I was really hoping the Forest Service was going to make my job easy, but they did not do that,” said Kaufmann. “They’ve made my job pretty difficult. They’ve showed me quite a number of really good candidates.” Capitol workers said they’re looking for a tree that stands out, and well, stands up straight, too. “It has to be straight because behind the Christmas tree will be at the Washington Monument,” said Kaufmann. The tree not only has to look good, but it also has to hold up thousands of handmade ornaments from New Mexicans showcasing all things New Mexico—like chile, hot air balloons, even Smokey Bear. “When we take that tree to D.C. and it gets stood up on the west lawn of the Capitol…that it’s clear that the collage of the ornaments on there, that it’s representing New Mexico well,” said USFS Deputy District Ranger Ricardo Martinez. Although they haven’t picked out a tree yet, they’re not ruling out any type of tree. Well, except for one. “Charlie Brown Christmas trees make good trees too,” said Kaufmann. “But unfortunately, we will not be getting a Charlie Brown Christmas tree.” Workers said they hope to find that Capitol tree by the end of the week. They will cut it down in November and then haul it off to D.C. For more information about submitting New Mexico-themed ornaments to the USFS for the Capitol tree, click here.

I was reading the Old STATS Baseball Scorecards and they had a leadoff Triple Crown. It consisted of On Base Average, Runs and Stolen Bases. This is logical as On Base Average relates to batting average, Runs relates to RBIs and stolen bases is like, but not as helpful to winning as home runs. I […]
