I only ended up getting through 44 days but I enjoyed the journey. I don’t feel guilty or like I failed. I will try it again some time. Simple as that. 🙂 Meanwhile, I’ve got to keep reminding myself that if I want to try something, I should try it. If I don’t finish something, […]

THE DUMBARTON DEMOCRAT

It was the opportunity of a lifetime to create a real town square of considerable aesthetic value and architectural merit for Dumbarton. As per usual, however, West Dunbartonshire Council blew it. This time, however, the officials are not to blame. The councillors chose to ignore the planners’s expensive advice and gave this project the thumbs […]

The Night Watchman

Blog note. Jesus indicated that ‘fearful sights’ (various natural disasters) would occur leading up to the time known as the Tribulation and Great Tribulation (a combined seven year period of great destruction on earth). Although these types of things have occurred in the past for centuries and thousands of years, they could be identified as […]

(Written in Spring of 2014, just FYI) I never thought that buying new furniture would result in a relationship that would leave an indelible mark on my life. All I was trying to do was find some antiques for my bedroom. I was changing its theme- less “African Queen,” more “1930’s glamour.” I did some […]

(L.E. Baskow/Las Vegas Review-Journal) @Left_Eye_Images A jury has awarded nearly $1.8 million to a Las Vegas man who lived for a decade without knowing that a 57-inch metal wire ran through his body after a surgical error. The verdict handed down late Tuesday for German “OT” Ortiz and his wife Angela Ortiz came after a weeklong trial against the cardiologist who performed a 2005 angioplasty, Mark Taylor, and his company, Heart Center of Nevada. “They are so grateful, as we are, to the jury and to the judge,” one of Ortiz’s lawyers, James J. Jimmerson said. “When justice prevails, it is a beautiful thing.” When a doctor told Ortiz in 2015 that he needed surgery to clear blood clots, an X-ray exposed the wire stretching down his aorta, from his chest to his thigh, according to attorneys Jimmerson and his son, James M. Jimmerson. Ortiz, 70, spent 22 years in the Air Force, receiving a Bronze Star, and has lived in Las Vegas for about 30 years, his lawyer said. He serves as a youth pastor at Cornerstone Christian Academy and Preschool. A year ago, doctors removed two-thirds of the wire for a heart procedure, Ortiz’s lawyers said, though more than 20 inches still stretch down his thigh. “He was forever changed when he learned about this wire,” James M. Jimmerson said. Ortiz was taken to the University Medical Center emergency room after experiencing shortness of breath almost 14 years ago. Doctors told him he had congestive heart failure and needed an angiogram, according to a lawsuit that Ortiz and his wife filed in 2016. In an angiogram procedure, a catheter is inserted through the bloodstream to distribute a dye that allows doctors to photograph blood vessels. In Ortiz’s case, when the catheter was removed, a guide wire remained in his body, the suit alleged. This is a developing story. Check back for updates.

    In the mid-1990’s, Earl Shorris met Viniece Walker in the Bedford Hills Prison. Shorris was there researching for a book on poverty, but Ms. Walker gave him more than he was prepared for. As I read about and hear discussions in Charlotte concerning a planned tax to support “the arts”, I thought of […]

A JUDGE at the Central Criminal Court has warned that it is an offence to publish anything identifying the two boys convicted of Ana Kriegel’s murder and anyone who does so will be “treated in the most serious fashion”. Representatives of Twitter and Facebook will appear in court tomorrow after it emerged that social media users had identified the 14-year-old boys despite an order by the trial judge preventing their being named and a provision under the Children Act that prohibits the identification of minors accused or convicted of a criminal offence. Two boys were yesterday convicted of the murder of Ana Kriegel Brendan Grehan SC for the Director of Public Prosecutions today raised a concern with Mr Justice Michael White seeking an order for Facebook and Twitter to remove from their platforms any material identifying the boys. Making the order, Mr Justice White issued a “trenchant warning” to any individual who decides to try to identify the boys, saying they will be subject to a contempt of court application and “will be treated in the most serious fashion”. Mr Grehan said the court has “unlimited powers” of detention and fine for anyone found in contempt of court. Justice White said the trial was a particularly sensitive one and nobody could be under the illusion that publishing the identities of the accused is not prohibited by the Children Act. He also made an order for Facebook and Twitter to appear in court tomorrow morning in relation to contempt of court proceedings issued against them. ORDER FOR MATERIAL TO BE REMOVED He further ordered that any material identifying the boys be removed from those platforms. Mr Grehan raised the issue, saying that lawyers for Boy B had contacted the DPP’s office and alerted them to images published on Facebook alongside derogatory comments. Counsel said some of the commentators seemed to be aware that there was an order made to protect the boys’ identities. Mr Grehan said the individuals who published the photographs can be identified but the images had been shared and it is not yet clear to what extent. He said it is the DPP’s view that the owners of Facebook and Twitter have a responsibility in respect of the matter and the DPP was seeking an order against those platforms directing them to remove photos or any other material that would identify either of the boys. [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN NEWS” posts_category=”2″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] The boys, identified in the media only as Boy A and Boy B, were convicted on Tuesday of murdering Ana Kriegel at Glenwood House, Laraghcon, Clonee Road, Lucan on May 14 last year. Boy A was also convicted of Ana’s aggravated sexual assault in a manner that involved serious violence to her. Both boys had pleaded not guilty and were convicted by unanimous jury verdicts on all counts following an eight-week trial. Ana Kriegel
