Some classes were cancelled, however, because of the necessity of being in a particular classroom.“Our class was originally moved to the Multipurpose Building, but my professor had to cancel the class because she could not access her office that had material for class,” said Shane Murray, a junior physical education major. “Fortunately my professor says that we will be able to catch up in the next few weeks.”Students who have jobs at the Rec were concerned about missing work and pay. Jay Iorizzo, the director of campus recreation, addressed these concerns in an email.“All student employees who worked during the outage are being paid,” Iorizzo wrote. “We had some students stay late when we had no power.”Students who have regular workout routines were upset by the two-day outage.“I try to workout at the Rec a few times every week after class,” said Brooke Wissenbach, a junior interior design major. “It was frustrating to have it closed.”There is still no news on when a new transformer will be acquired.

Opinion: TCU should not support campus carry

first_img Previous articleOPINION: TCU should have campus carryNext articleA non-traditional student balances family and education Erika Simonson RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Twitter Linkedin ReddIt printErika Simonson is senior political science majorTCU’s duty is to create the best possible academic environment for our faculty, staff and students, and that is only achieved by remaining a firearm-free campus. Many argue that our Second Amendment rights should take precedent over our right to make our campus the best place for students and professors. However, a record of the minutes from the 1824 University of Virginia board meeting reveals that even Thomas Jefferson and James Madison agreed that universities should prohibit “the keep or use of weapons or arms of any kind, or [even] gun powder” on campuses. The right to bear arms on a private campus has never existed here. Therefore, opting out does not interfere with our Second Amendment rights, which seems to be the only ground the advocates of campus carry have to stand on.Our campus discourse should always remain free and without threat if we want to have the most productive academic conversations. The discussions that happen in real-world court rooms, town halls and judges’ chambers are protected by gun-free zones, so why should our academic discourse on campus be any different? Having even legal guns on campus increases the potential for them to be obtained by people who did not previously have access to a firearm. Professors fear they will not be able to grade students accurately or discuss certain topics in class because even now they are threatened with violence for these issues. Imagine those same outraged students with guns stolen from people on campus. One of the leading contributing factors to suicide is access to a firearm. We could be putting the gun in a depressed student’s hand.TCU police, veterans on campus and other students have expressed major concern in these areas, and rightfully so. While these concerns are just possibilities of having guns on campus, they are real disadvantages that outweigh the nearly nonexistent benefits of campus carry.

Deputies Shut Down Final Illegal Marijuana Dispensary

first_img First Heatwave Expected Next Week The final illegal cannabis dispensary in Pasadena was forced to close on Thursday morning.“This morning Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies evicted employees of the illegal cannabis dispensary known as Kush 20 House at 1644 E. Walnut Street and returned lawful occupancy to the property owner,” said Code Commissioner Jon Pollard.“A locksmith was on site to remove the ex-tenant’s locks and install new locks for the property owner.”The operators of Kush 20 House lost a court battle last week after a judge ruled against an ex parte motion that would have stopped the eviction.The city has fought to close illegal dispensaries for several years On Feb. 6, city officials announced they had closed 23 illegal cannabis dispensary permanently since August 2018.In a 2-1 decision in December, Pasadena’s Code Enforcement Commission formally ordered the closure of Kush 20 House.In 2018, voters passed Measure CC, the city’s highly regulated process which allows only six pot dispensaries — and only one in each of the city’s seven council districts — to operate legally in Pasadena.The measure also requires dispensaries to maintain strict distance limits from schools, libraries, churches and residential neighborhoods. Nearly 200 businesses applied to do business in Pasadena.In June, The Atrium Group, Harvest of Pasadena, Integral Associates Dena, Tony Fong, Sweetwater Pasadena and MME Pasadena Retail were picked from among 122 applicants vying for permission to sell marijuana in the city.So far only Harvey and Integral have received conditional use permits.After Measure CC passed, the City Council banned so-called “nuisance,” or non-permitted dispensaries from applying for business licenses under the city’s cannabis law.

Additional Sessions Judge Dharmender Rana has permitted to release Jahan on 10 days interim bail from June 10 till June 19, so that she can attend her marriage function scheduled for June 12, 2020. The facts of her marriage were verified by Special Cell, Delhi Police. Jahan, also an Advocate, was booked by the Delhi Police for inciting a crowd and raising slogans of freedom during the anti-CAA protests in Delhi, on February 26, 2020. Subsequently, another FIR was registered against her under various provisions of IPC, UAPA, Arms Act and Prevention of Damage of Public Property Act. As per the interim bail plea filed through Advocates SK Sharma along with Lalit Valecha, Tushar Anand and Rahul Sharma, her marriage was already fixed with one Farhan Hashmi, for June 12, 2020. The plea also stated that she was merely a supporter of the ongoing peaceful protests and had been falsely implicated in the said case. It was contended that she had the Fundamental right to dissent against any unreasonable measure of the Government under Article 19(1)(a) and (1)(b) of the Constitution. “The applicant has committed no offence whatsoever, and the wild and baseless allegations being made against her are not only irresponsible and false, but have also caused serious harm to her reputation…At the bare perusal of both the FIRs, no overt act and no specific role has been ascribed to the applicant except allegedly making a statement “will die but will not move from the protest site . whatever the police do”,” her bail plea read. Her counsel further submitted that she had fully cooperated during the investigation and was no longer required to be held under judicial custody as the evidence, if any, to support the computation of alleged offences had already been collected by police during investigation. The court has granted her interim relief from on furnishing two sureties of Rs 1 lakh, with a direction to not tamper with any evidence or influence the witnesses in the case. Significantly, Jahan was granted bail by ASJ, Shahdra, on March 21, 2020, after he noted that “no overt had been imputed to her whereby she incited the crowd to take law in their hands and use force against the police.” However, another FIR was registered against her on the same day, for investigating the same alleged offence, “making a mockery of the judicial system by the investigating agency,” the bail plea states. Bail application was filled by Adv Lalit Valecha from Evision Legal Solution LLP, New Delhi. Next Storylast_img read more

Homestand Continues On Tuesday Against Bowling Green

first_imgAces and Falcons to tangle at 7 p.m.The third contest in a five-game homestand is set for Tuesday night as the University of Evansville men’s basketball team welcomes Bowling Green to the Ford Center for a 7 p.m. game.Evansville put forth one of its best efforts of the season on Saturday, earning a 72-67 win over Boise State for its second-consecutive win in the MVC/Mountain West Challenge after earning a road win at Fresno State a season ago.  UE led by as many as 10 points with four minutes remaining, but the Broncos roared back to tie it up before the Aces knocked down all six free throws in the final minute.  Jaylon Brown knocked down 11 out of 12 free throws on his way to a game-high 21 points while Ryan Taylor finished with 14.Willie Wiley made it 3-for-4 as he notched double figures for the third time in four games with 13 points against Boise State.  Over the last two games, Wiley has connected on 11 of his 13 attempts, including a 5-6 effort against the Broncos.  Wiley was extremely efficient, knocking down 6 of his 7 attempts on his way to 14 points; he also blocked three shots.Jaiveon Eaves had a nice game against Wabash, posting seven points on 3-for-7 shooting from the floor.  He was on the floor for 21 minutes while grabbing two rebounds and had two assists.  In the victory over Boise State, Eaves played just four minutes, but made it count as his triple in the first half got the Aces within two in the victory.Another freshman – Dru Smith – also played a pivotal role against the Broncos.  With 38 seconds remaining and the game tied, Smith hit a pair of free throws that gave the Aces the lead for good as they improved to 4-4 on the season.Bowling Green comes to Evansville with a 3-5 mark following an 85-56 loss at Cincinnati on Sunday.  Prior to that game, the Falcons won three in a row, including triumphs over Murray State and Morgan State.  Pacing BGSU is Wes Alcegaire, who enters Tuesday’s game with 13 points per game.  Just behind him is Zack Denny, who has notched 12.6 PPG along with a team-best 17 steals.In three match-ups in the series between the two schools, Bowling Green has a slight 2-1 lead.  The teams played a home-and-home in 2000 and 2001 with the Falcons taking both ends.  Evansville won the other meeting, which was played in Owensboro, Ky. in 1949.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Bill and Amanda O’Connor: A Father’s Day Story of Loss, Love and Hope

first_imgBill and Amanda O’Connor at OCHS Graduation  by Tim KellyOn this Father’s Day, Bill O’Connor received the same precious gift from daughter Amanda that he has received every day since September 11, 2001. The gift of life.“People are so kind when they talk about what I’ve done for Amanda,” said O’Connor, 54, a resident of the Gardens section of Ocean City. “The truth is she gave me more than I can ever give her. Amanda gave me purpose and reason to go on.”Amanda was just two years old when her mom, Bill’s wife Diana J. Vega O’Connor, was among the nearly 3,000 people murdered in the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, Pentagon and the crash of a passenger airliner in a Pennsylvania field.Since then the challenges have been numerous for father and daughter. But perseverance, a family bond, and Ocean City New Jersey turned a tragic story into one of healing and peace.Diana, the 15th of 16 children from a Brooklyn family and only the second in her family to graduate from college, was a Managing Director at Sandler O’Neill and Partners, an investment banking firm located on the 104th floor of the World Trade Center’s South Tower.Amanda’s graduation cap honors her mother, Diana, with her photo and prayer card.She always had a head for organization and for finance, Bill said, but in the tough world of Wall Street, Diana was the one employee who faced the pressure and the challenges of each day while singing at her desk. Known for her upbeat personality, generosity and strong devotion to family, Diana was just 37 years old on September 11.At the time Bill was an educator in the New York City public school system, the Dean of Students at Leonardo daVinci Intermediate School and the holder of two masters degrees. He loved his job and his students, but when Amanda had separation anxiety during pre-school, Bill decided to shelve his career and become a fulltime Dad.“Her pre-school teacher put a chair out in the hallway and I sat there for a week,” Bill recalls. “Amanda would run out of the classroom every 20 minutes to make sure I was there. I’d hug her and usher her back in. That is when I decided she wasn’t going to be raised by a nanny or a baby sitter or even a different relative.  I was going to do the best I could, and that meant it was going to be a fulltime job.”16 years later, Amanda is a proud graduate of Ocean City High School and an aspiring actress. Before moving to Ocean City as a freshman, she had been enrolled in four different New York area schools and could not find her niche.“I couldn’t fit in anywhere” Amanda said. “Everywhere we looked there were memorials to 9-11 and people identified my Dad and I as victims. People were very nice, but we did not want that to be our identity.”Bill and Amanda had first vacationed in Ocean City when Amanda was five years old. “Ocean City was the one place where we could find peace,” she said.  “There weren’t memorials everywhere and nobody knew we had an association with 9-11 unless we said something about it.”Father and daughter returned frequently to Ocean City, and the stays kept getting longer and longer.“We stayed one time for six weeks, and I finally said to my Dad ‘Why don’t we start over in Ocean City?’ My Dad gave up his home, his friends, his career, for me, and here we are.”“It was definitely a great decision,” Bill said. “There are so many things for Amanda to do here that she could not take advantage of in New York. The beach, the boardwalk, riding her bike around town…Ocean City provided the perfect atmosphere for her high school years.”Amanda’s gratitude to her Dad is palpable. “My Dad is the one who always invited my friends over to the house.  When we got hungry at 1 a.m. he would get pizza or run to Wawa.  He was great with me but also with my friends.  He would give them rides, buy them meals, buy their tickets when we went to the movies.  He would do whatever it took.”“I do a lot of waiting,” Bill said with a laugh. “I wait at school, at the mall, at the boardwalk.  It’s worth it though.  She gives me so much.  When I look at Amanda, my wife is alive.”Diana J. Vega O’ConnorNot only is there a strong physical resemblance to Diana, Bill said, Amanda has inherited many of her mom’s mannerisms.“One time I held Amanda in a blanket and her leg kicked outside of it, just the way her mom used to kick her leg out from under the blanket in bed. It was nothing conscious or something she tried to do, but it was such a reminder of my wife. I look at Amanda and see things like that all the time.”Last week father and daughter completed a major segment of their journey when Amanda graduated from OCHS. She fastened her mother’s photo and prayer card to her graduation cap.“I felt that my Mom was with me, and that she was really proud of my Dad,” Amanda said.Amanda has a full scholarship offer from Iona College in New Rochelle, New York, where Bill and Diana met and fell in love. But first she will pursue her dream of becoming an actress with studies at the prestigious Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute.Amanda spent a semester there last year, attending classes on the weekends during her regular senior year studies. She plans on spending one year at the institution’s New York location and the second year in West Hollywood. She is learning virtually every aspect of acting on the stage and screen.  Upon completion she will have an Associates’ degree to go along with her training and experiences, which she may use toward a four-year degree.Bill plans to continue supporting his daughter’s efforts, including a move to the West Coast when the time comes.“I owe my Dad everything, “Amanda says. “I definitely would not be the same person without all he has done for me.”For Bill’s part, there are no regrets.“There were difficult times, sure, and I think that’s true of all parents and particularly all single parents,” he says.“Looking back on it all, I don’t think I would change a thing.”last_img read more

Marcus King & Benji Shanks Join Blackberry Smoke for Incredible “Liz Reed” At Summer Jam [Video/Photo]

first_imgLoad remaining images On Saturday, June 23, the Allman Brothers Band Museum at the Big House hosted their annual Summer Jam. The event was scheduled to happen at the Kingsland Farms in Hawkinsville, GA, but was moved to the Macon Centreplex without much information as to why. Thankfully, the air conditioning was an added bonus to the one-day event that saw performances from Atlanta rockers Blackberry Smoke, blues-soul singer/songwriter/guitarist The Marcus King Band, and Richmond, VA’s jammers The Trongone Band. All three acts have a musical connection to the music originated by the Allman Brothers Band, so The Big House Summer Jam served as somewhat of a continuation of their legacy.Some of the highlights from the 2018 Big House Summer Jam included Marcus King’s father (Marvin King) joining the band for a few songs. Blackberry Smoke also invited special guest guitarist Benji Shanks to join them for several songs, as well as guitarist/vocalist Marcus King for covers of Black Crowes‘ “Wiser Time” and the Allman Brothers Band’s “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed”, both of which just about blew the roof off the place.
