Mollie Tibbetts’ father: ‘Don’t distort her death to advance racist views’

first_imgWOI(BROOKLYN, Iowa) — The father of Mollie Tibbetts, the 20-year-old woman who was allegedly murdered by an undocumented immigrant in Iowa, is speaking out against people using his daughter’s death to “advance racist views.”“The person who is accused of taking Mollie’s life is no more a reflection of the Hispanic community as white supremacists are of all white people,” wrote Rob Tibbetts in an op-ed published yesterday in the Des Moines Register.“To suggest otherwise is a lie,” he wrote.In a speech in Ohio on Aug. 21, President Donald Trump used Tibbetts’ death to attack the Democratic Party, saying that “any party that puts criminal aliens before American citizens should be out of office, not into office.”On Aug. 31, Donald Trump Jr. wrote an op-ed in the Des Moines Register in which he attacked democrats and the media, writing that “Mollie was murdered by an illegal alien and her murder would never have happened if we policed our southern border properly.”“I encourage the debate on immigration; there is great merit in its reasonable outcome,” wrote Rob Tibbetts. “But do not appropriate Mollie’s soul in advancing views she believed were profoundly racist.”Tibbetts, a rising sophomore at the University of Iowa, disappeared on July 18 after going out for a jog in the farming town of Brooklyn, Iowa. Following a search that lasted for more than a month, police arrested her alleged killer, Cristhian Bahena Rivera. Rivera has been charged with first-degree murder.Surveillance video led to the identification of a vehicle belonging to Rivera, and an investigation determined that he was one of the last people to see Mollie Tibbetts alive, police said.Rivera later admitted to getting out of his car and running alongside Tibbetts, police said. After Tibbetts threatened to call the police, Rivera allegedly told authorities that he got mad and “blocked” what happened next from his memory.He told authorities that he did remember dragging Tibbetts, with blood on the side of her head, into a cornfield, and leaving her there, officials said. Rivera later allegedly led authorities to Tibbetts’ body.Rivera faces life in prison without the possibility of parole if he is convicted.Tibbetts was buried on Aug. 23 in a funeral attended by over 1,000 people.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Prospective jurors to be questioned ahead of newspaper shooting trial

first_imgcsreed/iStock(ANNAPOLIS, Md.) — Hundreds of prospective jurors are headed to a Maryland courthouse Friday as jury selection begins in the trial of the suspected Capital Gazette newspaper gunman. On June 28, 2018, four journalists — Wendi Winters, Rob Hiaasen, Gerald Fischman and John McNamara — and a sales assistant — Rebecca Smith — were gunned down at the Capital Gazette newsroom in Annapolis in what became the largest killing of journalists in U.S. history.The suspected gunman, Jarrod Ramos, allegedly had a long grudge against the newspaper. Ramos, 39, facing charges including five counts of murder, has pleaded not criminally responsible — Maryland’s version of the insanity defense, reported The Capital Gazette.Three hundred potential jurors will begin the selection process Friday, filling out questionnaires, according to the Capital Gazette.Three days of jury selection is expected to start on Oct. 30.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Saudi Aramco to launch $75bn dividend ahead of IPO delayed by drone attacks

first_imgSaudi Aramco was revealed as the world’s most profitable company on 1 April when it released its debut bond, and has been expanding ever since with a flurry of acquisitions Saudi Aramco IPO announcement follows debut bondSaudi Aramco was revealed as the world’s most profitable company on 1 April when it released its debut bond, and has been expanding ever since with a flurry of acquisitions.The oil and gas giant generated a gargantuan $111bn in profit last year, comfortably topping second-placed Apple, which became the first company to be valued at more than $1tn in August.But drone strikes on its Abqaiq and Khurais oil facilities on 14 September have disrupted the plans for an IPO – initially tabled for 2020 or 2021.Chairman Yassir al-Rumayyan has said publicly that the stock market listing will still go ahead within one year – although Reuters has reported the incident is likely to delay the float while the firm works to rebuild confidence and restore production.Following the attacks, Saudi Arabia’s energy minister was quick to assure traders his country’s oil production would be back to normal by the end of September, while Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman said half the production lost as a result had already been recovered. US shale operators struggling amid the Saudi-led oil price war (Credit: White House/Shealah Craighead) Saudi Aramco has revealed plans to pay a $75bn dividend to investors in 2020, as it forges ahead with preparations for an initial public offering (IPO).A public float has been touted for some time, with a debut bond issued by the state-owned Saudi oil giant in April fanning the flames of speculation the firm was gearing up to go public.However, last month’s drone attacks on two of its key production facilities in Saudi Arabia have reportedly thrown its timetable into uncertainty.The dividend announcement is considered an effort to boost investor interest ahead of a future public offering, with the company still hoping to secure a market valuation as high as $2tn.A corporate overview on the Saudi Aramco website outlines plans for the $75bn shareholder dividend in 2020, as well as a “progressive growing dividend on a sustainable basis at board discretion”.Saudi Aramco added in the statement: “For the years 2020 to 2024, if annual dividends declared would have been less than $75bn, dividends to non-government shareholders are intended to be prioritised so that they receive their pro-rata share of a $75bn equivalent dividend.“In such case, the government will receive the remaining amount of dividend.”Aside from the dividend, Saudi Aramco also announced a change to its royalty payments scheme on Brent crude oil – with the marginal rate amended to 15% for prices up to $70 per barrel, 45% between $70 and $100, and 80% if the price rises above $100.last_img read more

What impact would Grexit have on UK housing market?

first_imgMany people believe Greece could now exit from the Eurozone after Greek nationals rejected the terms of an international bailout in Sunday’s referendum.By voting ‘no’, the people of Greece have not chosen to return to the drachma. This is not a vote for ‘Grexit’. But there are some European officials who have already warned that creditors could take the ‘no’ vote to mean that Greeks had rejected further talks.So far the UK housing market has remained largely unaffected by the goings on in Greece, thanks partly to the fact that the UK is not part of the Eurozone and so it has not directly contributed to bailing out Greece since the country got into trouble after the financial crisis.The UK has only really provided a fraction of the assistance indirectly through its membership and contributions to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), and as a consequence, Jones Lang LaSalle believes that it is unlikely that even if Greece did leave the eurozone the UK’s housing market would end up being adversely affected.Commenting on the implications of a ‘Grexit’ from the Euro, Andrew Burrell (left), Head of Forecasting at JLL commented, “Our view is that real estate will hold up well, even if the short term dislocation is dramatic. If a last minute deal cannot be secured, the prospect will be increased volatility, capital controls and rising bond yields, adversely impacting on financial markets.”As a result, post-Grexit, core European property markets, including the UK, should continue to benefit from plentiful liquidity and low financing costs.“Debt may become more expensive in peripheral Europe in the short term, but not in Germany, France and the UK.”In fact, Burrell forecasts that given the turbulence elsewhere, many international investors will continue “to be drawn to real estate”, including that of the UK housing market, “for its defensive qualities”.He added, “If the UK economy remains resilient, Grexit may even increase the attractiveness of the UK as a safe haven.”JLL Grexit UK housing market Andrew Burrell July 8, 2015The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

ARLA Propertymark Conference & Exhibition postponed again

Effectively the 2020 event has been cancelled.The new date for the event will be 27th April 2021, at ExCel in London’s Docklands, ironically the location of the London Nightingale Hospital, set up to accommodate Coronavirus victims.The event attracts over 1000 letting agents annually and over 60 suppliers to the industry and is seen as one of the industry’s key networking opportunities. The loss of the event will deal a considerable blow to the association’s income for 2020.A spokesperson for Propertymark ARLA said, “Because of the ongoing uncertainty in respect of large, publicly attended events taking place during this period, ARLA Propertymark Conference & Exhibition has been postponed until 27 April 2021.“We have worked closely with the venue, ExCel London, and our sponsors and exhibitors and the safety of all involved remains our highest priority.“A team from multiple departments at ARLA Propertymark work together throughout the year to plan and deliver our biggest national event. The decision to postpone is very disappointing and we appreciate that this delay is frustrating for all those planning to attend.“We want to thank all of our exhibitors and sponsors for their patience and we look forward to collaborating with them on our new date.“We can confirm that all existing conference registrations will be automatically transferred to the new conference date. If you have booked places at the conference on behalf of your colleagues and not provided their contact details, please pass this information on and refer them to the website.”https://www.arlaconference.co.uk/ARLA Conference 2021 ARLA Conference 2020 Propertymark ARLA ARLA conference postponed ARLA Conference Excel July 31, 2020Grant LeonardWhat’s your opinion?

Mayoral Canididate Gail Riecken Speech About City Finances

first_imgPlease take time and vote in today’s “Readers Poll”. Don’t miss reading today’s Feature articles because they are always an interesting read. New addition to the CCO is the Cause of Death reports generated by the Vanderburgh County Health Department.Copyright 2015 City County Observer. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare Thank you everyone for joining me this morning.In 2014 & 2015, Mayor Winnecke stood in front of the Evansville Rotary Club, and declared the State of the City to be strong.  However, it has become clear to me that the State of our City’s finances is anything but strong.Today, I want you to understand why we should all be concerned about our city finances.The starting balance of years 2013 going forward of the General Fund is plummeting.In 2013 & 2014, the Mayor spent more money than he took in, and he isn’t paying all our bills.  His administration are playing a shell game, moving funds from one city account to another at the right moment to show a positive balance.The Mayor’s Controller admitted this in a City Council meeting on April 13th.  He stated it was the administration’s “plan to have a positive balance”.   The pre-mature transfer of $2.5 million from the Water & Sewer Utility to the General Fund is but one example of shell game tactics.These shell game tactics have resulted in the city using today’s money to pay yesterday’s debts.So instead of fixing the leaky roof, we are paying for car repairs done 6 months ago.Following this trend, where do we end up in 2016?We must change the way we do business, and not let wasteful spending hold us back.The current administration has become all flash and no substance. Instead of looking at our dwindling General Fund Balance and trying to fix the problem, the Administration simply attempts to cover up the fact that a problem exists.  We can do better.The residents of Evansville need to hold their elected officials accountable.  The Mayor and his administration keep spending our money on irresponsible and foolish measures, which has cost the city millions of dollars.  These measures show a lack of leadership.  It is a lack of leadership that has placed us in the financial situation we find our city in today.It was a lack of leadership in the Mayor’s Department of Metropolitan Development that caused the city to drastically overpay to the tune of $535,000 for the old CVS Building on Columbia & North Main.It was a lack of leadership on the Mayor himself that lead to $200,000 in our tax dollars being thrown away to Earth Care Energy.  It was a lack of leadership that has led to the city spending at least $1.6 million on multiple failed attempts to build a Convention Hotel.The Mayor needs to be held responsible for the fact that the city’s funds are being mismanaged.  The buck stops with him.We as a city are on the brink of financial peril.  We must admit that we have a spending problem, and begin the work to fix the problem.  We need a leader who is willing to admit these issues that we face.  For if we cannot admit our problems, we cannot begin to solve them.We must ensure the financial future of our city.  I will work tirelessly as your next mayor to ensure this, not for ourselves, but for my children and grandchildren.  My two daughters,  Julia Belle and Katie, and my 3, soon to be 4 grandchildren, deserve the best Evansville we can give them.  It is our duty to leave our children and grandchildren a city better than it was left for us.Our moment is now.  Our mission is clear.  And our opportunity is in front of usThank you.Gail Riecken Candidate for the Mayor of Evansvillelast_img read more

O.C. Schools Celebrate First Day with Pep Rally and Cheers

first_imgBy MADDY VITALEInstead of just opening the doors in the ordinary, regular, and lackluster way some districts begin a new year, Ocean City celebrates with a party of sorts.Pop music played as students got off the buses at Ocean City High School on Thursday morning. School staff, led by Jill Berenato, Kathy Sykes and Kelly Halliday, who used bullhorns to call out hellos to students, began the opening day festivities. Schools Superintendent Dr. Kathleen Taylor, High School Principal Matt Jamison and Athletic Director Geoffrey Haines were some of the administrators who greeted the students.From left, Schools Superintendent Kathleen Taylor, freshmen Lane Michael and Valentina Asenov, Athletic Director Geoffrey Haines and Principal Dr. Matt Jamison.Some 1,200-plus students poured into the festive entrance to the high school, where banners welcomed them along with a host of teachers and other staffers.School staff wore T-shirts that read “100 percent,” showing students how much the district is behind them.The school marching band performed as students headed into the hallways. Some students chatted with friends they hadn’t seen all summer.It was time for school, to see favorite teachers, coaches and classmates.Noe Olmedo, 15, of Ocean City, is looking forward to his freshman year.“I think it’s going to be good,” said freshman Noe Olmedo, 15, of Ocean City. “It’s different from Intermediate School. I have a football game after this. We should do well. We’ve had good practices.”Lane Michael, also a freshman, summed up the feelings for some on the first day. “I’m excited and a little nervous at the same time,” she said.And the celebratory mood of the students extended throughout the district as the Intermediate School and Primary School each had their own festive beginning to the new school year.Primary School students get ready for a new year. (Photo credit: JASM Consulting)“Each of the schools welcome the students in a celebratory way,” Dr. Taylor said. “This is what we are about, positive support for our children. This is a great opening day.”The students are not the only ones who receive warm welcomes by the district.Jamison said a few years ago, when the district decided to do the pep rallies and celebrations for opening day, it was to show staff and students how much the district cares.“We want the students and our school staff to know we want them there and we are behind them,” he noted. “Instead of just opening the doors, why not do something better to start the school year?”Students head into school, while district employees wearing “100 percent” T-shirts greet them.School staff lined the hallways there to answer questions from the incoming students. All of them wore their “100 percent” shirts.Greg Wheeldon, who heads the media department at the high school, is executive producer and advisor for the school’s broadcast, “Current OC.”He said he is looking forward to the new school year and big things from his students in Current OC.“I’m excited to get things started,” Wheeldon said with a smile. “Our Current OC will be played in the classrooms this year.”The marching band gets the students pumped.Sgt. Pat Randles, Officer Jen Elias and Officer Colby Meloy, (back), of the Community Policing Unit, stop in the school on their patrols.District staff, from left, Kelly Halliday, Kathy Sykes and Jill Berenato, lead the pep rally.Greg Wheeldon, of the media department, with school librarian, Sara Maimone.

Child falls from Sugarloaf Mountain chairlift

first_imgCARRABASSETT VALLEY – A child fell approximately 20 feet from a chairlift at Sugarloaf Wednesday afternoon; the 8-year-old girl was transported to Franklin Memorial Hospital where she was then LifeFlighted to Eastern Maine Medical Center. The event occurred around 1 p.m.Sugarloaf Communications Manager Noelle Tuttle said the girl was loading at the mid-station lift with her mother and apparently didn’t get completely on the chair before heading up the mountain.“We’re not sure exactly what happened, but the chairlift operator noticed they were struggling and was able to turn off the lift,” Tuttle said.The employee was then able to place a “catch net” beneath the girl. Tuttle said the girl reported some back pain, but was otherwise apparently uninjured. When paramedics arrived on the scene, however, they realized the girl had a pre-existing medical condition that raised concern and made the decision to call Life Flight.The girl, who lives in Maine, was reportedly wearing a helmet.An investigation into the incident by the Sugarloaf Ski Patrol is ongoing.last_img read more

Former College general counsel Cristal Brisco was appointed as magistrate for the St. Joseph Circuit Court and began serving in that role since July 16, according to a June press release. McCampbell most recently worked as deputy Title IX coordinator and director of diversity, equity and inclusion at Indiana University South Bend, according to the release. She also served as general counsel to Lincoln Memorial University, a private, liberal arts university in Tennessee from 2011 to 2015. McCampbell attended the University of Tennessee for both undergraduate and law school. McCampbell also served as trial counsel for the Knox County, Tenn. Law Director’s office. This role enabled her to serve as in-house counsel to Knox County Schools, “a district with 88 schools and nearly 60,000 students,” the release said.“I am grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the Saint Mary’s tradition of educating women with a sense of purpose and social responsibility,” McCampbell said in the release. “The values of community, faith and justice that infuse the College will be a continual source of inspiration.”Tags: general counsel, Nancy Nekvasil, Saint Mary’s Collegelast_img read more
