Two women with outstanding warrants have added new charges to their list after they were found to be driving around town with a 16-day old infant on the floor of their car.The incident occurred in London, Kentucky Thursday.Officials say both 32-year-old Rebeca Jean Fultz and her mother, 69-year-old Charolotte J. Simpson were pulled over for outstanding warrants Thursday around 7:30 pm.While authorities conducted the arrest, Fultz informed them that her newborn was in the car. Officials reported that they could not find the infant at first, because she was not strapped into a car seat. The infant was later found on the floor of the vehicle between the passenger and front seat.Officials also reported that the infant was covered in ants, had a soiled diaper, and was laid amongst trash, an unsecured flat-screen television, and seemed to be having trouble breathing.The infant was taken to an area hospital where their condition was said to have since improved. The infant is still, however, being treated for dehydration, and will be turned over to social services.As for the child’s mother and grandmother, they have been taken to a local jail where they face child abuse charges along with their warrants.
FH woman celebrates first year selling sports equipment to femalesBy Anastasia MillickerKendra Boyd runs her A Chic with Stix store, which caters to female lacrosse and field hockey players only, from the top floor of her parents’ Fair Haven florist shop.FAIR HAVEN – Kendra Boyd has had a field hockey stick in her hand since middle school.The Atlantic Highlands native started playing field hockey as a youngster, gradually moving up to play at the high school level for Henry Hudson Regional High School then at the college level for the The College of New Jersey.Today Boyd is still playing but her passion for field hockey has not stopped on the field. Boyd is the founder and owner of the shop A Chic With Stix. Named after her recreational field hockey league, A Chic With Stix offers girls’ only lacrosse and field hockey equipment and apparel.Boyd, 25, said field hockey has always been her passion. She had a dream to set up a store to help educate female athletes – especially those playing field hockey and lacrosse – about finding the right equipment to help them succeed. So she set up shop above her parents’ garden shop, Boxwood Gardens, on River Road.Teaching health and physical education during the day at Carl Sandberg Middle School in Old Bridge, Boyd operates the shop in the evening with the help of her parents, Bill and Pam, and her sister, Christy.Located on the second floor of the two-story Victorian home, A Chic With Stix has a wall lined with a wide range of selections for female athletes, including lacrosse and hockey sticks of all colors and sizes, apparel in bright and fluorescent colors, shin guards and a rack of headbands decorated with lacrosse balls.Unlike large sporting good stores in the area, A Chic With Stix offers firsthand and personalized knowledge about the equipment, Boyd said.“In a large store, you order a stick or a lacrosse stick and you don’t get to try it out and sometimes people working in the large stores aren’t as knowledgeable. But here you can try out the stick and, if it’s your first time, I can show you how to properly hold it and size it,” Boyd said.Boyd also offers field hockey lessons.When the store first opened its doors a year ago, the shop initially offered only field hockey equipment. Today it has expanded its selection offering lacrosse sticks and apparel including some brands typically not offered in large sporting good stores such as Dita, Grays, Gryphon, TK, STX, Harrow, and deBeer.When first purchasing a stick, Boyd said she asks customers if they have played before. Then, based on their experience, height and athletic performance level sought, Boyd tells them the size and shows clients how to use the equipment.Kendra Boyd in her shop, A Chic with Stix, 807 River Road in Fair Haven.Hockey sticks range from $50 to $299 based on style and athletic level while lacrosse sticks range from $45 to $200 depending on brand, types of lacrosse sticks and heads. Teams can receive 10 percent discounts when they place a team order.Many local high school and middle school athletes, including those from Red Bank Regional, Rumson-Fair Haven, Red Bank Catholic and Manasquan high schools, come to try out and purchase sticks, Boyd said.Boyd attributes much of her business’ success to her parents’ and teammates’ support.Friends and members of teams have spread the word about her business by sending email messages to school athletic directors and coaches throughout New Jersey.“The girls I played with all throughout my years, alumni, and coaches at The College of New Jersey and Henry Hudson Regional High School have all been huge supporters and promoters for my store,” Boyd said.A Chic With Stix celebrated its first year anniversary in April. Boyd said the past year has brought many successes and she hopes to continue into the upcoming years.As for future plans, Boyd hopes to expand her business throughout the state by opening locations in North and South Jersey.A Chic with Stix is located at 807 River Road and is open from 3-6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays.Additional information is available on the store’s website at www.achicwithstix.com.

By Robyn DiPietro-Wells[Flickr, Fire Support Certification Exercise, by The U.S. Army, CC BY 2.0] Retrieved on Nov. 3, 2015In early September 2003 in Fayetteville, NC near Fort Bragg, my dogs and I were waiting out Hurricane Isabel. Being approximately 90 miles inland we didn’t need to evacuate and instead spent the day napping on the couch waiting for the weather to clear. At some point a loud crash rattled the house causing the dogs to bark. My very first thought was, “That’s strange. Why would they be firing artillery during a hurricane?” However, a few minutes later, I remembered my dogs never barked at artillery fire, so what was that loud crash? I went to our back window and saw a huge tree had fallen from the neighbor’s property into our yard, crushing our fence but missing our house. It was then I realized I was so accustomed to the noise of military life that I didn’t even think a crashing noise in the midst of a hurricane was anything but business as usual!Families around the globe, living in a variety of situations, deal with noise pollution all the time. A quick GoogleTM search for the definition of noise pollution and you will find that it is “harmful or annoying levels of noise, as from airplanes, industry, etc.” Living near an airport, a police or fire station, train tracks, or even in a busy city exposes families to noise pollution. However, military families living on or near an installation, even in remote locations, can also experience this as well. Our home was roughly 13 miles from the heart of Fort Bragg yet we also experienced blasts that shook our home.How does noise pollution affect children? How does it affect children with disabilities? Are those effects any different when the noises are coming from explosions or aircraft? Many military families report that most children get used to these noises the same way adults do. For some children who are new to an installation with many explosions they might startle, duck under their desks, or try to hide at first. However, with time they adapt. Some children develop a keen awareness and can tell the difference between a bombing run, sonic boom, an airplane on a flight path, and thunder. Other children find the noises exciting, especially when it comes from an airplane. They may want to look out the window or go outside because they imagine that one of their parents might be on that plane. For most military children, they learn early what the noises are and they adapt.For others, including some children with disabilities, these noises can be downright terrifying. For children with anxiety or sensory disorders, it can be very scary, especially at times when a parent is deployed. The child may become very scared because they are too young to understand how far away combat is or from where the noise is coming. One military mother reported that her daughter, who has an anxiety disorder, “would just scream and scream. And it keeps you up at night and breaks your dishes.” While a lot of families adapt to the noise, for many of the families with whom practitioners work this kind of noise pollution is a daily intrusion into the family’s life and overall well-being.How can you as an Early Interventionist or Early Childhood Special Educator support families and children like those described? What things do you as a practitioner need to know and understand to better serve these populations? In the upcoming webinar on Nov. 12, the MFLN Family Development Early Intervention team will discuss inclusive and supportive environments. Noise pollution will be one of the many issues our presenters will touch on.

Essential Reading! Get my 2nd book: The Lost Art of Closing “In The Lost Art of Closing, Anthony proves that the final commitment can actually be one of the easiest parts of the sales process—if you’ve set it up properly with other commitments that have to happen long before the close. The key is to lead customers through a series of necessary steps designed to prevent a purchase stall.” Buy Now I have asked this question here before, multiple times, and in multiple ways:If one were to watch a video of how you spent your time over, say, the last week, would they immediately recognize your goals?After watching the video, what would they believe is important to you from looking at the objective evidence of the physical actions you take throughout the day?In a workshop I was delivering, a young man told me that in order to do better work, he’d have to be provided a financial incentive. When I inquired as to why he would have to be paid more to do better work, he said, “I am money motivated.” He was taken aback when I insisted he wasn’t money motivated, and that he just wanted more money and was lacking the motivation.There is this old cartoon of a man standing in front of a wood burning stove, holding wood in his arms. The stove is saying to the man, “Give me more wood, and I will give you more heat.” The man replies, “Give me more heat, and I will give you more wood.”There is a certain order of things in this Universe, a law that we recognize as cause and effect. As far as I have been able to discern, there is no law of effect and cause. You don’t get the heat before you put wood in the stove, meaning you have to grab your ax and chop wood if you want heat. This law cannot be broken, but it is possible for you to break yourself against the law.For some, last week’s video would indicate comfort and entertainment was their greatest priority. For others, the video might indicate their goal was winning arguments about politics on social media. Most videos would show the individual drifting, being carried by invisible forces, with no real aim or goal.Watching the video of those who are motivated would provide evidence of their having blocked time, eliminated distractions, and doing the things that moved them towards the life they want for themselves and for their people. While there would surely be some comfort and entertainment sprinkled in, on balance, their week would look very different from the majority.The average lifespan for a man in the United States is 79 years, or 4,108 weeks. For women, that number is 81, or 4,212 weeks. I will allow you to do your own math here, but I will be very clear about the point of this exercise:Whatever your goals, whatever your dreams, whatever it is you want, whatever is most important to you, spend the few weeks allotted to you pursuing them with vim and vigor!
OAKVILLE, Ont. – An Ontario town council will continue Wednesday to hear submissions on a plan to demolish the historic Glen Abbey golf course despite its heritage status.Glen Abbey’s owner ClubLink filed an application Monday to demolish or remove the golf course and some buildings to make way for a mix of homes, offices and stores.ClubLink is battling local residents over its redevelopment plan for the golf course, which has hosted the Canadian Open 28 times.In August, the Town of Oakville voted in favour of designating Glen Abbey as a heritage site, giving it some protection under Ontario heritage laws.ClubLink has accused the Town of overreaching but says it will not appeal the heritage designation.Council heard Tuesday night from a number of groups opposed to ClubLink’s plans and will take up the issue again on Wednesday night.The company has applied to demolish the golf course and several buildings, but some sites, including stables and the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame and Museum, will remain.
