The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee “
An eclectic group of six middle schoolers vie for the county spelling championship. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home life, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words hoping to never hear the soul-crushing, “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. At least the losers get a juice box. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a riotous ride complete with audience participation. This performance contains some adult content.

Today, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch and U.S. Attorney Steven M. Dettelbach announced Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office) funding awards to 11 agencies in the Northern District of Ohio, aimed at creating, and in some cases protecting, 43 law enforcement positions. Over $107 million will be awarded nationally, through the COPS Hiring Program (CHP), including $5.4 million in the Northern District of Ohio.
  • Boardman                $250,000                2 officers
  • Austintown              $125,000                1 officers 
“The COPS Office is pleased to assist local law enforcement agencies throughout the country in addressing their most critical public safety issues,” said Ronald L. Davis, Director of the COPS Office. “These grants are not simply about putting more officers on the street, they are about expanding the capacity of law enforcement agencies to engage in community policing.”
“The Department of Justice continues to back up its words with action, providing more than $5 million to keep Northern Ohio safe,” Dettelbach said. “This money will result in more officers on patrol in the Mahoning Valley, getting guns and drugs off the street while strengthening our community.”







Before There Was Cait, There Was Glenda


September 15, 2015: Rabbit Advocacy Network, House Rabbit Society, and SaveABunny, on behalf of tens of thousands of house rabbit lovers, are thrilled to announce the end of rabbit meat sales at Whole Foods Market (WFM).
Whole Foods Market's sale of rabbit meat began in Summer 2014 as a pilot program and drew widespread criticism from pet lovers across the nation, attracting dozens of protests at their stores as well as a petition signed by over 50,000 people.
A House Rabbit Society member and long-time Whole Foods shareholder traveled 800 miles to attend the annual Whole Foods Market Shareholders Meeting in Charlotte, NC today to speak on behalf of the bunnies being killed for the grocery chain’s meat case.  She does not consider herself an activist, but felt strongly that the shareholders meeting would be an integral outlet to bring up her concerns as both an investor in the company as well as a lover of pets. After her heartfelt plea to the Whole Foods leadership team, she was told by Whole Foods’ Chief Operating Officer, A.C. Gallo, that Whole Foods had decided to cease the sales of all rabbits by the end of 2015.
According to the 2012 American Pet Products Association (APPA) Pet Owners Survey, 2.5 million households now live with rabbits, who are now the nation’s third most popular (behind cats and dogs) furry pet. Their 2009-2010 survey found that 6,678,000 rabbits were kept as pets in the United States in 2010, and that number continues to increase.
Margo DeMello, President of House Rabbit Society, had this to say about Whole Foods’ decision: “We could not be more excited that Whole Foods has decided to listen to their customers, and pet lovers across the country, and ended their sale of rabbit meat. We thank Whole Foods for putting pets before profits. We hope that other grocery chains will follow in Whole Foods’ footsteps, and make a similar decision: that rabbits, or any pets, are not a viable meat.”
Tara Baxter of Rabbit Advocacy Network commented, “We are extremely grateful that a monumental amount of rabbit lives will be saved moving forward.  We hope that other grocery chains will follow suit so that the cruelty inherent in rabbit farming will cease forever. The undercover investigation done by Last Chance for Animals of the Pel-Freez rabbit farm proves that there is no humane way to farm and kill a bunny and that these animals suffer immensely when they should be treated like the beloved companion animals they are.”

Opening Ceremonies Include Blessing by Monsignor Siffrin, Food, Family Fun  

Café Augustine to Open in Newport Library on October 12 


YOUNGSTOWN – Café Augustine and the Public Library of Youngstown and Mahoning County announce the opening of Café Augustine, located in the Newport Library, 3730 Market Street, Monday, October 12. Opening ceremonies and a blessing of the Café by Monsignor Robert J Siffrin, V.G., begin at 10 a.m. and the event features free refreshments and family fun.  


Café Augustine is a four-month personal growth and work readiness program operated independently of the Library, but located in the café space in the Newport Library. Café Augustine aims to equip young adults age 18 through 24 with tools necessary to change their lives, in part by operating the cafe.  


“The Café utilizes 21st Century Success Principles curriculum, developed by the New Orleans Job Initiative. These address participants’ understand of workplace culture and are tailored for inner-city youth with little connection to the labor market. Life skills topics include making rational decisions, personal responsibility, personal/family finance, teamwork, dependability, ‘can-do’ consciousness, recognizing and defusing racism in the workplace, building relationships of trust, and more,” notes Reverend Edward Brienz, Café Augustine Executive Director.  


The cafe is working with and modeled after Cafe Reconcile, a cafe opened in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina. Chef Emeril Lagassi was instrumental in the start-up of Cafe Reconcile and has expressed interest and support of the Youngstown project.  


Students are mentored by restaurant staff at the café in five restaurant roles – stewards, floor service or wait staff, pantry chef, sous chef, and department chef.  


“Job placement is another role for the café, where students are offered a four-week paid internship at various local food-service providers who are incentivized and encouraged to retain the employees and to mentor them beyond entry-level employment,” says Rev. Brienz.  


Library Executive Director Heidi M. Daniel, says, “We’re very happy to have a café back in the Newport Library. We have been working with Father Brienz and the Café staff for the past several months and are pleased that the opening is just around the corner. We are excited to partner with Café Augustine on a program that helps young people fulfill their potential. We believe that what the Library offers in materials and services provide a similar opportunity, making this a wonderful partnership.”

Before There Was Cait, There Was Glenda

If all the hoopla (hmm, i think that's the first time I've ever used that) about Bruce to Caitlyn Jenner, isn't just about banking more money for the Kardashikingdom, but,  has helped people to be kinder to each other, then: good!

 I'm certain those claiming expertise in transgenderism will  certainly critique,  trash my words or, just  claim more expertise. Well, let me say, I have NO expertise, but, just a bit of experience. No, I'm not 'trans'. I have no hidden desire to be female, although my dear lesbian friend says "Louie, you're a lesbian trapped in a man's body." Maybe it's because I can  hang with the girls without being on the make. 

 Ah, but then there was Glenda!....
