dr martens 1460 boot cherry red Director and Roller Derby Girl

doc martens ebay uk Director and Roller Derby Girl

It’s been well established that Drew Barrymore is both adorable and a free spirit. Who else could show up to the Toronto premiere of her first directorial effort, the roller derby themed film Whip It, with a hair do that looked like something put together by a bored Jolie Pitt child during an unsupervised hour at the chateau? If this were Lindsay Lohan, Dr. Phil would be calling for an intervention, but when Barrymore dips the last two inches of her electrocuted looking blonde bob into skunk black, we assume her motive was not pretension or looming personal disaster, but rather some sort of unabashed joy we may not share, but which we can appreciate.

Whip it is a lot like that hairstyle. Even if a tale of female empowerment through roller derby is not your particular cup of tea, Barrymore delivers it with such a giddy good sense of fun that it’s easy enough to go along with. Moreover, she emerges as a sensitive director who, despite a tendency to make some overly romantic choices, knows how and when to let an emotional moment linger on the screen. Brooke, a faded beauty queen, would like her two daughters (Bliss is the older sister) to follow in her footsteps in the pageant world and then, after the triumph of coronation, go on to some greater future that while undefined, does not mimic her own fate of settling down with an amiable husband (Daniel Stern) in a shoe box of a house to raise children between shifts at the Bodeen post office.

Having Bliss become a queen of the Austin roller derby circuit certainly wasn’t on Brooke’s agenda either. But while mother and daughters are enjoying a girls’ outing to a clothing/head shop in Austin “pretty vases!” Brooke says approvingly to a case full of bongs a trio of tattoo ed and pierced women roll in on skates, mugging maniacally as they pass out flyers for the next weekend’s derby. Most teenage girls would have taken refuge from these R. Crumb style creatures behind the Doc Martens display but not Bliss. She is enraptured. (See the top 10 female sports heroes.)

The next thing you know she’s riding the Bingo bus from Bodeen to Austin to practice with her new team, the Hurl Scouts. They all have names that sound like Blind Vices from Ted Casablanca’s E! columns: Maggie Mayhem (Kristen Wiig), Rosa Sparks (Eve), Bloody Holly (Zoe Bell) and Smashly Simpson (Barrymore, cheerfully taking on the role of team idiot). Their coach is Razor,
dr martens 1460 boot cherry red Director and Roller Derby Girl
and he’s played by the third and least well known Wilson brother, Andrew. Juliette Lewis is fairly terrifying as Iron Maven, the star player for the Hurl Scouts’ rival team.

The only person who knows what Bliss is up to is her best friend Pash (Alia Shawkat), who doesn’t mind covering some of her shifts at the Oink Joint, either for the sake of the derby or Bliss’s budding romance with a hipster boy from a band, Oliver (played by musician Landon Pigg). “It’s a great name,” Bliss sighs, her usual reserve shattered by Oliver’s protruding hip bones and fervent attentions. “Yeah, if you like wayfaring Dickensian orphans,” Pash says wryly. Her cynicism sets the tone for how we feel about the romance, and Barrymore’s sweetly cheesy direction of two love scenes between Oliver and Bliss, one set in what looks like a wheat field and the other in a swimming pool, does not dissuade us from this. (See the top 10 fringe competitions.)

The arc of the sports movie is such that we know we’re going to have to sit through some defeats, some victories and a championship match, which of course turns out to be scheduled for the same night as one of Bliss’ beauty pageants. Barrymore does a capable job with these action sequences, although tiny little Page is not the likeliest of derby contenders and the sport has such a cartoon aspect that it seems about as likely to become a national craze as Barrymore’s Toronto hair style.

But she excels with people. Wiig, rapidly proving to be a solid actress and not just a comedian, has some memorable scenes, as does Shawkat, just coming off a radically different role in Amreeka. The relationships between Bliss and both her parents in particular are nuanced and very vivid. In every scene Harden reminds us that she is, deservedly, an Oscar winner, and Page manages to transcend the dangerous trap of her Juno role and make Bliss very much her own person. When Harden and Page are together on screen, whether feuding or struggling to understand each other,
dr martens 1460 boot cherry red Director and Roller Derby Girl
we’re riveted by the complicated and tender nature of their mother daughter bond.

dr martens slip on Diane Keaton reads from new memoir at Princeton Healthcare fundraiser

WEST WINDSOR Oscar winner Diane Keaton, perhaps best known as the quirky heroine of Woody Allen Hall, charmed a sold out fundraiser for the Princeton HealthCare System at the Hyatt Regency tonight with very human confessions about aging that actresses of her caliber seldom make.

Dressed in what has become her signature look a white turtleneck, wide leather belt, black and white houndstooth wool suit with ankle pants revealing black Dr. Martens boots she swooped into the audience of an estimated 1,000, first to read from her new memoir, Just Say It Wasn Pretty and then to answer questions from the predominantly female audience.

Running up from the back of the large conference room to its stage, she certainly didn look like the 68 year old, never married, self professed never surgically altered star. But her book, like the is Gold chapter from which she read, is all about accepting what comes with aging in what she calls the of her life.

Wishing she could ask her contemporaries how they cope with aging, Keaton read, they wake up every morning and, like me, look in the mirror with a big sigh? Do they ask themselves what old age is for? . . . No one wants to be called doddering or past their prime , or long in the tooth. No one wants to be reminded they no spring chicken. No one wants to be a dilapidated, broken down, beat up, out of date, cast off, worn out, stale example of a human being. We worked hard to become who we are. peppered her appearance with asides and jokes from her life such as asking for a train ticket and being given one for a senior citizen or envying actor Michael Douglas for not dying his hair one silver fox. memoir is filled with candid assessments of Keaton life, from the admission that she often wears hats because she is losing her hair to the fact that her somewhat eccentric style of dress is inspired by Cary Grant style menswear designs in black, white and gray. The mother of two adopted children, Dexter and Duke, she also states that she will never marry.

In between starring roles in such films as and Godfather trilogy, Keaton integrated romances with co stars Al Pacino, Warren Beatty and Woody Allen. There were others, but, in her book, Keaton singles out Pacino as the one who got away.

She writes: face, his nose and what about those eyes? I kept trying to figure out what I could do to make them mine, she writes. never were. That was the lure of Al. He was never mine. For the next 20 years I kept losing a man I never had. her audience tonight, Keaton shared a letter she wrote to Jack Nicholson, a longtime friend who had done her a favor. In an almost poetic way, she told him would she his back no matter what. As she read the passage, no one in the audience stirred.

dr marten boots ladies Do you know who heads the Vodafone account at Ogilvy

brown dr martens Do you know who heads the Vodafone account at Ogilvy

We mean, on the creative front. After Rajiv Rao quit the agency last year, the Vodafone business fell onto this gentleman’s shoulders.

To say Kiran Antony, 40, is a man of few words would be an understatement. Much like his creative predecessor, he is media shy, low profile and quiet, but heads the most high profile, high decibel and media prolific telecom businesses out there. Meet the man who has been running the Vodafone account at Ogilvy India for the past five months.

In July last year, Ogilvy India announced former national creative director Rajiv Rao’s exit from the agency; after spending 18 years at the agency, Rao, credited with cracking the famous Zoozoo campaign for Vodafone, went on to pursue ad film direction. Since then, Antony has taken over the reins of the account. We profiled the executive creative director’s journey so far.

Kiran Antony

Antony has been with Ogilvy India for 17 years. This is his first advertising job; he was an engineer before that. Prior to joining Ogilvy, he worked with a company (that builds machines) called Mechelonic Engineers for two years as a software engineer. He got his engineering degree from the Government Engineering College, Thrissur. We would have linked this profile to his LinkedIn page. except, Antony doesn’t have one. We happen to know he loves cooking, long drives, swimming, and playing badminton. and is passionate about sports in general.

When he joined Ogilvy India in 2001, he handled the Mid Day business. At the time, the creatives for this account were mostly print ads. So when did he enter the Vodafone (or Hutch, at the time) team? It was only in 2002 that he started working on the Hutch business, we learned during the course of a recent interview with Antony at the agency’s Mumbai office where he is based. that is to come up with ideas,” Antony tells afaqs!. About working with Rao, he adds, “I would give my ideas and obviously, Rajiv would add his thoughts and inputs. I learnt quite a lot. Sometimes you feel, after a certain number of years, you are ‘there’ and have the maturity to understand that the idea is good, but when you take that idea to Rajiv, he will have a completely different spin on it. You think your idea is great and then Rajiv would tweak it in a way that turned an average film into a good film. Rajiv always urged us to keep thinking till the film is shot. And sometimes, even beyond. I can never forget his famous words ‘Hard work never killed anyone’.”

Antony is quick to add that the inputs of Prakash Varma (director of Vodafone ads) helped heaps in this good to great process. “I have been part of almost every Vodafone shoot,” Antony smiles.

So, how has life changed post Rao’s exit? “Life has not changed much. My job is to wake up every day and ensure my team and I come up with good ideas that strengthen and build the brand. I have to continuously drive new age thinking and ideating on the brand,” says Antony, adding, “I do miss having Rajiv around, but I put to practice all that I learned from him over these years.”

When it comes to its media presence, Vodafone has given its consumers some memorable mascots; after the pug campaign, we saw the Zoozoo splash and most recently, the adorable Dhananjayans. Does a successful legacy put pressure on Antony? “There is always scope for bettering your work. The first time when the boy dog film (Hutch) came out, we all thought that no other film would ever better this film. But then came the Zoozoos and then Super Zoozoos, Zumis, Asha Bala and so on. This brand truly values creativity, it’s the reason why there is always magic waiting to happen.” he says, insisting that records always get broken.

About the handover process when Rao decided to move out of the system, Antony recalls, “It has been smooth. I have been working closely with Rajiv for over 17 years, right from our Orange/Hutch days. In the last few years, with Rajiv’s mentoring, I have been leading the integrated Vodafone team (advertising and digital). So, there has never been a formal handover process. There is no question of fitting into his shoes. They are too large to fill. I am happy to now have the opportunity to build on everything he helped create.”

Apart from his first account, Mid Day and his pet account Vodafone, Antony has worked on brands like Ceat, Federal Bank, IBM, Titan, Future Group, and Star Sports. Although 90 per cent of his time is dedicated to Vodafone, he gives 10 per cent of his time to make the one off film for his other clients, we learn. All our ads are different. ‘Lookup’ (digital campaign done a few months back) is a completely different story. Many mini products are involved and work on all these various parts is completely different. With Vodafone, it’s more like many brands in one. All our ads are different, yet the tone is the same,” he adds.

So why does the Vodafone account need so much attention? Antony says, “Vodafone is such a big account it needs your full attention. There is firefighting going on something or the other every day. Every circle (state) will have a different talk time/data plan, offers, festival ads, so we have our circle offices doing the work, but it all gets streamlined here, via the central team in Mumbai. We do quite a lot of films, but along with that, there are a lot of other things that go on to complete the communication. So besides mainstream, BTL and on ground, we have plenty happening on the internet. With close to 90 million subscribers on the Vodafone Zoozoo page, we have to keep the engagement going with posts, stories, contests, etc. It’s safe to say, there is never a dull day at Vodafone.”

Speaking of the Zoozoos, some are of the opinion that Vodafone overdid it with this theme. Shouldn’t brands keep an end date in mind when launching a new mascot? What’s the challenge? Antony says, “You need to keep refreshing the ideas. If you take the Zoozoos, for example, we had the original Zoozoo then after a year and a half, we brought in the Super Zoozoo he was Zoozoo in a superhero avatar. It was much more active, energetic, fun, and entertaining than the previous one. Then we got the little ones, the Zumies. Although, for the common man, it is still the Zoozoo. but still, it is a different flavour. So we need to keep improvising. Even Asha Bala ads were all set up in Goa, so this time around, we took them abroad. Next time we may just do something different with them.”

About his plans for this account in the days ahead, Antony says, “TV will continue to play a big role for us. Through the Lookup campaign, we went online and asked people to go offline to take a break from their phones and spend time with their loved ones instead. We started off by creating the ‘Vodafone Phone Valet’ at a restaurant where diners were given the option to leave their phones with the valet and enjoy their meal/conversation, without being interrupted by the phone. We captured their reactions at the end of the night and compiled it as a video to inspire others to Lookup. We followed it up with Lookup films for Father’s day and Friendship Day with close to 60 million views. And you will see more Lookup activation/films in the coming months. It’s not a one off; it’s a philosophy.”

In the months ahead, we expect Vodafone’s ads to reflect a certain signature an Antony special flavour if you will. “Honestly, I am not as big as Rajiv to add my flavour to Vodafone,” signs off an ever so humble Antony, whose favourite Zoozoo ads are the Stock Exchange and Super Zoozoo films. Of course, the recent films that feature the Dhananjayans (Asha and Bala) also make the list.

If you are a Reddit user and like to read the PC Master Racesubreddit you might have noticed there is a thread going on about how to get a performance boost on your NVIDIA GeForce video card. The thread basically goes into detail about how to disable the NVIDIA Streaming Service that is used by NVIDIA SHIELD owners to stream their game titles.

If you don have an NVIDIA SHIELD this service doesn need to be running all the time and you can disable it manually by the method described below by the Reddit user lhikary.

Recently i found that my card was trying to stream games to a nvidia shield even though i dont own one and it was eating at my cpu and destroying my framerate in games however i found a way to close down this process. click the windows icon in the bottom left and search Next open up services and locate Streamer Service Open the service and stop the service if its running then disable the service. Do all this and hit apply and you be able to see a noticable framerate boost and drop in your cpu usage!

Legit Reviews contacted NVIDIA and found out that they are aware of this issue and how it is a small subset of systems that use GeForce video cards.

size 3 doc martens District Judge Neff questions sheriff’s stand on federal gun proposals

dr martens website District Judge Neff questions sheriff’s stand on federal gun proposals

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. District Court Judge Janet Neff is critical of Kent County Sheriff Lawrence Stelma, who recently said that President Obama’s proposed gun control laws “ignore the real issues” in dealing with gun violence.

Judge Neff surprised by Sheriff Stelma’s stance on federal law

Recently Kent County Sheriff Larry Stelma, was quoted saying that he will not abide by or enforce federal law which he determines to be unconstitutional. The comment was made in the context of discussion about proposed legislation concerning gun control.

After almost 43 years in the legal profession this came as a surprise to me. That aside, when the county’s chief law enforcement officer declares that he will not follow a proposed statute if enacted, the details of which are still nascent, he makes a mockery of the rule of law which he is sworn to uphold and it is a poor example indeed when he exceeds his proper role in such a blatant fashion.

I question whether there are other federal or state statutes which Mr.

Stelma deems unconstitutional or otherwise unworthy of his enforcement discretion. Perhaps he should publish a list. Both Governor Bobby Jindal and Karl Rove made this statement.

Karl Rove added that Republican party can’t simply be in mindless opposition to Barack Obama. Likewise, the pro gun crowd can mindlessly support the availability of these military weapons to civilians. Do they mindlessly believe this fulfills the intent of the Second Amendment? The subject legislators ARE mindfully fulfilling the sales objectives of the deep pocketed gun manufacturers lobby, however.

Being in opposition must be why some of the smarter conservatives are calling the GOP to wit, Mindless=Stupid.

We pay legislators to mindfully apply judgment and reason to add value in an intelligent way. Those in the NRA camp and their powerful support of gun manufacturers is one important reason that 20 innocent kids were slaughtered in Newtown.

I amazed at the quantity of readers who fail to understand why anyone would want to possess an assault style rifle. It could be militiaman protecting our freedom or simply a homeowner defending his property and family.

These are dangerous times as a natural, social or economic collapse couple appear on the horizon at any moment. This scenario is more likely to happen than ever before. Without any form of defense, looters and marauding bands of scoundrels will roam undeterred. That is when you will want equal or superior firepower.

Sandy and Katrina left many defenseless only to witness a weak response from the government. On this path of mismanagement we shall certainly become an Obama nation.

For myself, last year was a medically bad year with three major surgical procedures. Each required more than an overnight stay in the hospital. In addition, there were two minor surgical procedures and several months in physical therapy.

For one day’s service, one person billed $1,725. My two insurance companies paid a total of $310 and my remaining portion is zero. Am I complaining? NO!

My point is without the two insurance companies, I would have owed the whole $1,725, so what happened to the $1,415 difference? Is this a tax rip off or just medical extortion of uninsured people? Obviously, this present system is non functional for the uninsured people. A truth in medical billing law may lower all medical costs.

The so called Obamacare law also may lower medical costs or more likely my initial over inflated bill will become the normal standard cost. What can be done? Perhaps someday Congress will get its act together. That does seem very doubtful, doesn’t it?

Is it necessary for George Aquino to preface his food review by crowing about his “swanky” accommodations at the JW Marriott, after which he continues with a review of four chichi Miami restaurants. We get it, George. We fully grasp that you are living in the rarefied atmosphere of privilege and perks that are not relevant to the majority of the newspaper’s readership.

In these dire economic times, the Press and its readers would be better served to have a food critic who focuses on such amenities as: “senior” discounts, buyone, get one offers, on line specials, etc.

I see why Congress nothing is accomplished in the House of Representatives, Congressman like Bill Huizenga who chose to pursue their religious views and not address the problems in front of them is the reason Congress doesn’t work.

Why does he even to address a situation that doesn’t affect him, abortion, that is a situation that falls on a woman’s shoulders. It is something that affects her body not the Congressman. His religion has nothing to do with another person he doesn’t know, it not his business, government should stay out of the way here. The person involved has their reasons and they aren’t my business or the Congressman. It’s bad enough he’s like Congressman Amash who votes the way he wants and doesn’t care about the feeling of the people of his district.

I detest the Grand Rapids Press for pushing this conservative 18th century mentality in Western Michigan. Perhaps, this why your readership is going out the window, you keep pushing these conservatives, you lost me when you thought Sarah Palin was a legitimate vice presidential candidate. I’m still laughing.

Two articles in the Sunday Grand Rapids Press about the MEAP test were well done. Scott Baker did an excellent job of explaining this issues and how we got here, although I am not sure that I agree that exempting students from the test is the best solution. Dave Sipka is correct that assessment is important. Teachers have always assessed their students, usually using quizzes and final exams. But to be helpful, assessments must be timely. The results of the MEAP tests are not timely. Results that are not received for months are not particularly useful and raise questions about the real purpose of the test. I agree with Mr. Baker that parents and other citizens should become informed and make their voices heard in Lansing. The wrong people are influencing our representatives.

dr martens school shoes Did An Ohio Woman Die In Memphis

cheap womens dr martens Did An Ohio Woman Die In Memphis


Police say Snider told them his wife died of natural causes and he her with nature by throwing her off the bridge. The results of the polygraph have not been released.

Hartville PD also conducted an electronic search of Snider 2017 Ford truck sync system, and they also used cadaver dogs. Evidence seized during that search is being analyzed.

Police say Snider still maintains that his wife body is in the Tennessee River. Philip Snider, who originally told police his wife died in the bluff city, now reportedly claims to have dumped her body in the Tennessee River.

Investigators were originally told 70 year old Roberta Snider died from poor health January 4th on the way to Graceland. Now police say Snider drove from Kentucky with his dead wife and dumped her body in the river on the way back to Ohio.

Police say Snider told them his wife died of natural causes and he her with nature by throwing her off the bridge.

Police have not yet said if Snider faces any charges. They are searching for the body.

A missing person mystery: an Ohio woman vanished on a trip to Graceland. The woman husband claims she died as they pulled into Memphis, but no one can find her body.

According to police, the husband also hasn been able to recall key pieces of information.

Police say Roberta Snider husband said the 69 year old was in poor health January 4th when they left Hartville, Ohio, for a road trip to Graceland. According to Philip Snider, they spent the night at a hotel in Kentucky, and then drove to Memphis the next day.

Philip Snider told police Roberta died as they pulled into Memphis, so he flagged down an ambulance near the Graceland Day Inn and his wife was taken away.

The Local I Team found proof he checked into the Day Inn hotel next to Graceland. We talked to the clerk who checked him in.

“He said he had misplaced his wallet or something, so he said could he use his wife credit card, so I said no big deal,” said Juanita Walton, hotel clerk. “I didn see the wife I didn see nobody but him, so I don know if she was in the truck or not. All he wanted to do was go get his car washed.”

The police chief in Hartville, Ohio, told the Local I Team he believes Roberta Snider was in Memphis, but at this point he doesn know if she was dead or alive.

We checked. Police and fire officials do not have any record of Roberta Snider or any Jane Doe being picked up by an ambulance or taken to a hospital.

dr martens vegan boots Doc Does Some Sole Searching

gold doc martens Doc Does Some Sole Searching

Sales are way off for Dr Martens footwear the giant soled combat boot and assorted shoes that came to mean so much to the kind of people who wished not to be entirely understood.

The fashionably rebellious have, of course, moved on from the combat boot seen in the mosh pits of yore. Hard core punks, skinheads and Goth kids are still bitter about the decade long sellout of their beloved Docs, to the point where the shoe became widely seen on The Man (who bought them at Macy’s and wore them to work, in a bloody cubicle. It’s like the skinheads say: Oi!).

Dr Martens’ parent company, the R. Griggs Group, in addition to announcing that it will close one of its three factories in England, put forth some ideas to “shape new perceptions about the brand.” Soon it will be coming up with shoes that will be lighter in weight, different in style, prettier. (It will continue to make the “1460,” its trademark black, eight eyelet, lace up boot of 42 years, along with other classic styles.)

“We’ll always have a core group of consumers, but there were opportunities to evolve. I don’t think we evolved enough,” Bobbie Parisi, global brand director for Dr Martens, says from her office in Portland, Ore., which will always, come rain or rain, be a chunky boot kind of place. “There is still a lot of opportunity for us to evolve. In my own mind, the brand name stands for self expression, and we think there’s a way for that to be carried on.”

But self expression is a difficult thing to bottle and sell to 5 million selves, which is how many people bought a pair of Docs last year. (Dr Martens says sales will be “well down” this year; some industry observers say it could be half.)

Just as Levi’s 501 jeans and Adidas track suits and Lacoste tennis shirts have all learned a thing or two about the ebb and flow of a finicky phenomenon called “retro,” Dr Martens will probably learn the hard way that what goes around comes around and then it has to leave again.

It can take a page from Puma, Dr. Scholl’s, Clarks or Hush Puppies any number of footwear brands that clung to a core market in wan times and are once or twice thrown back into hipster consciousness for a wild ride.

Inasmuch as it’s a story about one business hitting a slump, the Doc Martens falloff is a larger tale about a philosophy of life being in trouble. Decades never quite begin and end according to the calendar, yet there is delayed evidence that the ’90s are over: planes hit skyscrapers, Internet whiz kids are moving back into their parents’ houses, and nobody is rich anymore except the rich.

And Doc Martens, as we knew them, are passe.

Shoes are small now. There is daintiness, color, whimsical shapes yes, in the men’s department, too.

It all began when Klaus Maertens, a German medical doctor, injured a foot skiing in the Bavarian Alps. Recuperating, Maertens and engineer Herbert Funck designed an air sole shoe to take the load off. They marketed the shoe locally, and eventually sold the patent to R. Griggs Co., shoemakers of London. The first pair of black boots with the thick, patented, heat sealed sole and distinctive yellow stitching were made in 1960.

After that, no marketing plan could have intuited the slow path to high fashion that the boots took. London Mods wore them, and so did the police officers who chased their scooters. The first punks wore them, and so did the skinheads. The ska bands wore them, and the Goth kids wore them. The second coming of punk wore them (or wore the Converse All Star sneaker, now no longer made in America but in China), and the widely defined “grunge/alternative” universe heat sealed the shoe’s fate. By then, a pair of boots cost $120 or more, millions and millions were sold, and there’s not much punk about that. In everyone’s rush to be alternative, the Dr Martens lost its angry credibility.

But Bobbie Parisi isn’t about to give up.

She describes the new Dr Martens campaign and talks about some of the new sandals. The soles are about one quarter of the thickness of the old Dr Martens sole, she says. A kicky pair of thong sandals craftily incorporates the logo seen on the loop on the back of the original 1460 boot, “and there are lots of colors.”

doc martens for sale Disappointment as ABP buy Eling Wharf site with ‘huge potential’

That is the fear of Totton and Marchwood Councillor David Harrison following the announcement that port owners ABP had acquired Eling Wharf in a multi million pound deal.

“I’m extremely disappointed at this turn of events. This is a site with huge potential,” said Cllr Harrison, who represents the area on new Forest District council.

Over the past five years previous owners Burt Boulton Holdings (BBH) had been discussion with the council and residents over plans to build housing and a supermarket at the 41 acre site a scheme which the developers said could create 350 jobs.

“We could have got rid of the those horrible containers which overshadow the quay and had a beautiful waterfront walk. Now that’s all been ditched in favour of more intensive use of the site for port related activities.”

Cllr Harrison added that the previous plans for the site had included new access, leading directly off the A35.

Currently huge containers lorries are forced to use narrow access roads,

including High Street, round the clock.

ABP says their purchase of the wharf “is designed to secure employment and the key role the wharf plays in supporting the Port of Southampton”.

ABP Southampton Director, Alastair Welch explained why the port had decided to buy Eling Wharf.

“Port users have increasingly relied on Eling Wharf to support their operations as the port has become busier.”

There are 24 tenant businesses on the site and Mr Welch said ABP would support their work. An event where tenants can meet members of the ABP Southampton property team is planned.

“As we progressively enhance the site over the next five years, we will work with the council to explore longer term options for Eling Wharf,

” he said.

In medieval times the wharf was used for shipbuilding and there was a thriving timber trade. In more recent times a number of industries occupied the site including a chemical works and coal importers.

dr marten work boots Details still murky on meth dealer’s escape

dr martens kids Details still murky on meth dealer’s escape

As News 18 told you exclusively on Friday, Lafayette police are looking for Travis Nichols after he was medically released to an Indianapolis Hospital last month.

We’re still getting answers as to how this happened.

Nichols didn’t even show up to his own jury trial. Benjamin Grieser doesn’t understand why anyone would think a convicted meth dealer would obey a court order to stay in the hospital without security.

“I think that’s very frightening,” said Grieser. “It’s an inmate, what do you think? If he has a chance to escape he might take it.”

Ultimately, it was Tippecanoe Superior Judge Randy Williams’ decision to medically release Nichols on his own recognizance. But according to court documents, the prosecutor’s office did not object. Last week, Harrington said his office doesn’t typically endorse the medical release of felons.

“As I said Friday, ethically I can’t speak about the facts of this case and generally speaking that’s our policy, I have been able to retrieve the file mark time stamps of the pleadings so you can get a more, you can see as in real time things transpired back on Dec. 12,” said Harrington.

Email and court time stamps show prosecutors were told Nichols was already medically released, intubated, and being airlifted to Indianapolis at the time. Harrington says objecting wouldn’t have changed this situation since it was already underway.

“That’s a really big loophole I guess in our system, I don’t really know too much about it,” said Grieser.
