Publix asks customers not to openly carry guns

first_imgPublix is the latest retailer asking its customers not to openly carry guns in their stores.The Florida-based company has over 12-hundred stores across the southeastern U.S., including in some states where open carry is legal.The state of Florida does not permit open carry of fire arms within its jurisdiction meaning that anyone openly carrying a fire arm in public is performing an unlawful act, whether or not they have a permit.Individuals in the state are allowed to openly carry firearms when they are inside their homes or places of business.Publix follows other retailers such as Walmart and Kroger, who have made similar requests following mass shootings in multiple states this year.“Publix respectfully requests that only law enforcement officials openly carry firearms in our stores,” the store said in a statement.last_img read more

First lady delivers lunch to firefighters and families in DC

first_imgMelania Trump treated lunch amid the coronavirus pandemic.The first lady made a surprise visit with District of Columbia firefighters and emergency medical services personnel last week to deliver White House-prepared boxed lunches, tote bags, reusable face masks and hand sanitizer, her office said. She also met with police officers.Mrs. Trump had been making regular visits to schools, hospitals and other venues to promote her youth welfare initiative, “ Be Best. ” But after the pandemic forced classrooms to close and hospitals to bar visitors, it appears she turned to the White House kitchens for inspiration. The courtesy call came as President Donald Trump has made it clear that he stands with police and other law enforcement amid the nationwide calls for racial justice and changes to policing sparked by the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police.last_img read more

Lincolnshire comeback stuns Surrey on opening day of Women’s County Final

first_img Tags: Buckinghamshire, Cheshire, Gloucestershire, Lincolnshire, Norfolk, Surre, Women’s County Finals, Yorkshire 16 Sep 2019 Lincolnshire comeback stuns Surrey on opening day of Women’s County Final Lincolnshire battled back to secure a 5-4 victory against Surrey on the first day of the Women’s County Finals at Delamere Forest Golf Club, Cheshire.Despite being 3-0 down going after the morning foursomes, Lincolnshire were able to secure their first point of the week after winning five out of six available points in the afternoon’s single matches. The stand-out performance came from Meg Illingworth who won 5&4 over Gabby Shacklady.Lincolnshire’s India Clyburn, Billie-Jo Smith and Ellise Rymer all won by one whilst the game was secured by Helen McDougal on the 17th after beating Jessica Adams of Surrey by two.Lincolnshire Team Captain, Helen Dawson, said the team proved what they could do: “They believe in themselves, they believe in each other and this afternoon they proved they can do it. You have to be confident, we all think we’re going to win, we all hope we’re going to win, we’ll all do our best to win.She added: “[after the morning foursomes] I think we thought we had nothing to lose, just go for it and don’t play it too safe.”Defending champions Gloucestershire also overcame a foursomes deficit to pick up an opening day victory. In conditions preferable to the storms at Royal North Devon GC last year, Gloucestershire were able to dominate the singles after a slow start in the morning’s play.Although Ffion Tynan and Alex Saunders took the first foursomes 7&6, Norfolk fought back to take the remaining two foursomes points.However, in the singles it was a different story as Gloucestershire almost swept the board. Apart from Abigail O’Riordan’s 1up victory over Jess Brown, Norfolk were unable to stop the defending champions, with each singles win at least 3&2 on the day.Meanwhile, Yorkshire, who missed out on the last day in 2019, started off their campaign with a crushing 8-1 victory over Buckinghamshire to jump to the top of the early standings in Cheshire.Buckinghamshire were competitive throughout the morning foursomes and it was only late on that Yorkshire secured a trio of tight 1 hole, 2 hole and 2&1 wins.However, they couldn’t apply enough pressure in the singles to make any serious threat to the Yorkshire charge. Thalia Kirby’s 2 hole win over Lily Hurst was Bucks only highlight as Nicola Slater, Mia Eales-Smith, Beth Norton, Evie Cooke and Hannah Holden all picked up singles wins.Image courtesy of Leaderboard PhotographyView the full leaderboardlast_img read more

Dr. Nicole Adamson Explains The Benefits Of Chiropractic Care

first_imgFacebook81Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Dr. Nicole Adamson for Adamson ChiropracticDr. Nicole AdamsonLet’s get down to brass tacks…What does a chiropractor do?  Who needs to see one?  Most importantly, what is the benefit?  I have to answer these questions every day, and it’s a good problem to have in my profession.  Let’s explore these questions one step at a time.A chiropractor is a physician who specializes in manual medicine seeking to reduce pain and improve function.  We do this by stretching sore muscles, mobilizing stiff joints, reducing pressure on sensitive neurological structures and restoring the integrity of the musculoskeletal system.  We do all of this without surgery or drugs, and we get amazing results.  Patients who seek chiropractic treatments experience less pain, improved sports performance and increased function in their daily activities.Most people will tell you that visiting a chiropractor is scary, or that you should see a “real doctor.”  Let me ask you this:  if you have a toothache, would you go to your foot doctor?  Or if you had a broken leg, would you visit your dentist?  Of course not. That would be very scary, and you would have a negative experience.  But if you wake up with a stiff neck, or you get a back injury at work, or you pull a muscle in the gym you should seek treatment from a musculoskeletal physician – a real doctor that specializes in biomechanical injuries.  You should see a Chiropractor.Just like any other avenue of medicine, there are a lot of different types of chiropractors.  Some specialize in specific treatment protocols, some specialize in treating certain conditions, and even more specialize in family health and wellness.  Regardless of your diagnosis, there is one out there that will suit you and I recommend being proactive.  Get established with a chiropractor you like, have them check out any aches or pains and let them tell you their opinion. You don’t have to have an injury for a consultation.  You can go in for a wellness visit which is very beneficial so that your doctor can evaluate you at a “regular” level of function. Don’t wait for that day when you help your neighbor move a couch and you throw out your back and can’t move for a week.  Don’t wait for the day when you get rear-ended on the way home from the store and you have neck pain every morning.  Parents please don’t wait for your youth baseball player to blow out his or her shoulder after complaining for weeks that they are sore.  Start early.  Be proactive.  Get a specialist on your team that can handle these situations so you don’t have to visit a surgeon.Chiropractic care is very beneficial for patients experiencing general pain or stiffness, and it is very specific curative treatment for many acute, biomechanical conditions. If you have not been evaluated by a chiropractor, why not?  What are you waiting for?  Do something to improve your physical health and wellness and start with a chiropractic visit today.last_img read more

Olympia’s CIELO wins Library of Congress State Literacy Award

first_imgFacebook45Tweet0Pin0Submitted by the Secretary of StateCIELO, a nonprofit organization in Olympia that provides literacy support and resources to immigrant and refugee communities in the South Sound, recently received a Library of Congress State Literacy Award for their contributions to the promotion of literacy and reading in the state. The organization was nominated by the Washington Center for the Book, an affiliate of the Library of Congress Center for the Book and a partnership between The Seattle Public Library (SPL) and the Washington State Library, a division of the Office of the Secretary of State.“I enthusiastically applaud all of the staff and the more than 150 volunteers at CIELO for receiving this well-deserved award,” said Cindy Aden, Washington State Librarian. “CIELO is a bright light in the community, and is the only source for comprehensive all-ages literacy in the entire South Sound region.

Beyond literacy and education courses, CIELO also offers free mental health and crime victim advocate services.“We at CIELO are elated and humbled to be one of the ten national recipients of the Library of Congress Literacy Award! The innovative use of dedicated volunteers multiplied the impact and made the education programs possible,” said Dianna Torres Angulo, outreach coordinator for CIELO. “This really is a testament to what can be accomplished when a community comes together.”The Library of Congress Literacy Awards Program honors nonprofit organizations that have made outstanding contributions to increasing literacy in the United States or abroad. Only 10 organizations will be awarded nationwide in 2020. Since 2013, the Library of Congress Literacy Awards Program has awarded $1.9 million in prizes to 120 institutions in 35 countries.Washington’s Office of Secretary of State oversees a number of areas within state government, including managing state elections, registering corporations and charities, and governing the use of the state flag and state seal. The office also manages the State Archives and the State Library, documents extraordinary stories in Washington’s history through Legacy Washington, oversees the Combined Fund Drive for charitable giving by state employees, and administers the state’s Address Confidentiality Program to help protect survivors of crime.last_img read more

See which Indian pacer has passed a late fitness test and will play in…

Powered by Firework Indian pacer Ishant Sharma has passed his fitness test at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) and has been given the nod to join the national team in New Zealand for the upcoming two match Test series, much to the relief of skipper Virat Kohli and head-coach Ravi Shastri. On Saturday, India’s senior fast bowler thanked the NCA and their head Ashish Kaushik for his help during his rehab via social media while the Men in Blues look poised to test the Kiwis after their dismal performance in the recently concluded ODI series. Advertisement Picture Credit: India.com“It was a roller coaster ride for me after the injury on my ankle on the 20th January but with the help of Ashish Kaushik I managed to pull it off! Scans were a little scary, but today I am happy that I am fit ! Thanks Ashish Kaushik!  #recoverymode #recovery #postinjury,” Sharma tweeted.Advertisement The lanky pacer suffered a Grade 3 tear on his right ankle during a match between Delhi and Vidarbha at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in a Ranji Trophy game last month as medical tests confirmed that the fast bowler was out of the Test series against New Zealand and had been advised for six weeks of rest.“He has been advised complete rest for six weeks, so there is little chance of him playing the Test series against New Zealand next month. When he goes to the National Cricket Academy will depend on his getting into a position where he can walk properly,” DDCA director Sanjay Bhardwaj said after Ishant’s injury.The first match of the two Tests is scheduled to be played from February 21 to 25 at Wellington, while the second will start from February 29 to March 4 at Christchurch. The Indian team meanwhile, are currently playing a three-day warm-up game against New Zealand XI in Hamilton. You may also like:See which up and coming Indian batsman will replace Rohit Sharma in the NZ test seriesHere’s what Cheteshwar Pujara had to say about comparisons with Rahul Dravid Advertisementlast_img read more

Leafs look to start a new winning streak against Spokane

first_imgBy Bruce Fuhr,The Nelson Daily Sports EditorThe Nelson Leafs will be looking to get back on the winning track when the club plays host to the Spokane Braves in a Kootenay International Junior Hockey League contest Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the NDCC Arena.It’s the first meeting between the two clubs since Nelson ousted the Braves in seven games during last season’s KIJHL playoffs.The two teams enter the contest looking up the standings at the two front-runners in the Neil Murdoch Division — Beaver Valley Nitehawks and Castlegar Rebels.Expect the Braves (3-4) to be hungry for a win after Spokane lost 4-3 to Castlegar Sunday in the Lilac City. Meanwhile the Leafs (2-5) had a brief two-game winning streak snapped by the Fernie Ghostriders Saturday. “I don’t know what Spokane has but they always have a good solid team,” said Nelson assistant coach Jason Rushton.Rushton and fellow assistant Sean Dooley have been coaching the team while skipper Chris Shaw serves the final game of a three-game suspension. The Leaf coach and GM was suspended by the KIJHL for using “non approved — by Hockey Canada — players.Shaw was suspended after the Leafs played ineligible players in two games, Sept.18th against Grand Forks and Sept.19th against Penticton.“Spokane is generally a tough team at the start of the year so we just have to take the positives from this game (against Fernie), work hard and hopefully get some bounces,” Leaf veteran Gavin Currie said following Saturday’s game against the Ghostriders.Despite the record and playing on a team of young, inexperienced skaters, Currie is pleased with the progression the Leafs has made since the start of the season.“We’ve got some key injuries to some of the vets but you can see a lot of the D-men and forwards stepping up being huge players and just see them start to be more comfortable with their play on the ice and realize what they need to do to play at this level,” Currie explained.Next home game for the Leafs is Saturday, October when Golden Rockets visit the NDCC Arena.OVERTIME: Rookie Mitch Fowler leads the Braves in scoring with five goals and four assists for nine points. Rance Hughes also has five goals for Spokane. . . .Four players — Colton Schell, Connor McLaughlin, Gavin Currie and Nelson product Adrian Moyls — are tied for the lead in scoring for Nelson, each with six points.

Pegram, is in a pitched battle for Santa Anita’s Spring Meet riding title, thanks in the main to his remarkable success on two-year-olds.From nine mounts aboard “babies” this year, Maldonado has won seven, twice at Los Alamitos and five times at Santa Anita, including Saturday when he piloted Cioppino Pasadino to a 4 ¼-length score for trainer Gary Sherlock in the second race at an $18.40 win payoff.“He’s number one among 269 jockeys in two-year-old earnings this year with $241,645,” pointed out Pegram, “and he’s also first in wins on two-year-olds.”“I like being on younger horses,” said Maldonado, a refreshing presence in the Southern California riding colony. “It’s exciting. It’s like opening a Christmas present. You don’t know what you have until they run.“Riding good horses for trainers like (Mike) Harrington and (John) Brocklebank who always seems to do well with babies make it easier for me, and it helps to have a little luck at the break.“I got a off to a good start this meet. The last time that happened, at Hollywood Park, I won the title, so based on that, I think I have a good shot to win it here.“In past meets, it seemed I got off to slow starts and had to finish strong to catch up. Now I’m in a better position, up front with others trying to catch me.”FINISH LINES: Obviously, in quest of his third straight win in the Grade I, $400,000 “Win and You’re In” Shoemaker Mile next Saturday, June 4, worked six furlongs on Santa Anita’s training track Sunday for Phil D’Amato in 1:10.60.

For good measure, Unusual Heat also sired three horses that finished third . . . Hall of Fame jockey Alex Solis reflecting on icons Charles Whittingham and Bill Shoemaker, each with a stakes race named in their memory at Santa Anita: “They were two great people, two great horsemen and I’m very lucky to have ridden with Shoemaker and ridden for Mr. Whittingham.

I think he’s coming up to this race in good form.” . . . Congratulations to jockey Brice Blanc on winning his first race of the meet Saturday aboard Bert’s Melody for trainer Sean McCarthy in the Fran’s Valentine Stakes. “It’s been a little rough,” said the affable Frenchman. “I’ve gotten beat a couple of noses, so it was nice to win, especially for John Barr (Oakcrest Stable) and Sean.” . . .

SONGBIRD TAKES A MINUTE FOR SUNDAY BREEZEOn an overcast Sunday morning, Songbird, racing’s perfect filly, worked five furlongs on Santa Anita’s fast main track shortly after daybreak in a minute flat with exercise rider Edgar Rodriguez aboard.While published reports have mentioned the Grade II, $200,000 Summertime Oaks on June 18 as Songbird’s comeback race, trainer Jerry Hollendorfer indicated that was not written in stone, leaving the door open for other options.“I don’t have an agenda for her,” Hollendorfer said. “We’re taking it one work at a time. It wasn’t me who said we were going to run there. They said, ‘Was it possible?’ It is possible, but I didn’t pick that race.”Songbird, champion two-year-old filly of 2015 and easy winner of all seven of her races including the Grade I Santa Anita Oaks last April 9, has not raced since then. The daughter of Medaglia d’Oro is owned by Rick Porter’s Fox Hill Farms.Santa Anita clocker Dane Nelson had fractional times for Songbird of 24 flat and 48.20, with a six furlong gallop out of 1:13.20.“She galloped out good,” Hollendorfer said.
