Chronic wasting disease found in Guernsey County deer

Chronic wasting disease found in Guernsey County deer

The Ohio Department of Agriculture has confirmed a case of chronic wasting disease at a Guernsey County hunting preserve. It is the second confirmed case of the disease in the state.(Photo: Michigan Department of Natural Resources)The Ohio Department of Agriculture confirmed the diseased deer was found at Dakota Outfitters, located near Quaker City. The deer was recently transferred from a captive breeding facility in Holmes County, Walnut Hollow Whitetails near Sugar Creek.

Both facilities have been placed under state quarantine and will be subject to increased monitoring. The quarantine will remain in place until the state believes the disease can no longer be transferred from either facility.

“While the confirmed case is unfortunate, this proves the necessity of testing and monitoring the health of captive deer populations in Ohio,” state veterinarian Tony Forshey said in a statement.

Chronic wasting disease is among a family of diseases known as transmissible spongiform encephalopathies, which includes mad cow disease. The diseases are caused by misfolded rogue proteins called prions. The disease is always fatal, but the state reports there is no evidence it can be transmitted to humans. People are still encouraged not to eat an animal diagnosed or showing signs of the disease.

Ohio’s first case of chronic wasting disease was discovered in 2014, also at a hunting preserve. In that case, the state eventually euthanized more than 500 deer at a Holmes County facilitybecause of concerns of spreading the disease. The state found a total of 19 deer with the disease in that case, including 16 found when the herd was euthanized.

Hunting preserves allow customers to pay for the right to hunt deer typically bred at what are essentially deer farms. The deer are often bred for larger antlers. Dakota Outfitters website reads in part that the facility provides “a geologically superior place to breed and manage MONSTER whitetail bucks.”

There are 29 hunting preserves in Ohio and approximately 400 breeding farms, according to the Ohio Department of Agriculture.

The classic hunt at Dakota for a “super price for a super trophy” costs$4,500. The “Monster Hunt” for bucks scoring 261″ to 300″ costs $14,900. Larger buck hunts are offered, but prices are not listed online. Representatives from Dakota did not return a call seeking comment.

Chronic wasting disease has not been discovered in Ohio’s wild deer population. It has been found in the wild in Michigan, Illinois,Pennsylvania and numerous western states.

Chorley man given life sentence for murder

Chorley man given life sentence for murder

A MAN who strangled his partner, then put a 10 pence on her eye and wrote on her chest with her own blood has been given a life sentence after being convicted of murder.

Craig O’Sullivan, 40, of Chorcliffe Mews, Hollinshead Street, Chorley, admitted the charge when he appeared at Preston Crown Court.

Police were called at around 10.25pm on Tuesday, May 23 after the body of 30 year old Gemma Leeming was found deceased in a bed at her room at an address on Hollinshead Street.

A 10 pence piece had been placed on her right eye and the words ‘no brain’ written on her face in mascara and ‘you can’t have my brains’ on her chest. Police established that the writing on Gemma’s chest was written in her own blood.

O’Sullivan tried to cover the ligature marks on Gemma’s neck with make up and bought new clothes the day after the murder to try and negate forensics linking him to the killing.

Police also recovered a bag of clothing that he had tried to get rid of, including some of Gemma’s clothes stained with her blood.

Detective Inspector Paddy O’Neill from the Lancashire Police Force Major Investigation Team said: “Craig O’Sullivan is a vicious, manipulative and parasitic man, whose greed drove him to take Gemma’s life in the most sickening manner; all so that he could satisfy his addiction to Class A drugs.

“Witnesses told us that in the few weeks Gemma and O’Sullivan were together Gemma had been really happy. Other witnesses told us that at the same time O’Sullivan had openly told them that he was only with Gemma because she had a ready supply of controlled drugs.

“In the hours prior to Gemma’s discovery, O’Sullivan spoke to a local officer and showed her a picture of someone other than Gemma, claiming that this lady was the love of his life.

“On the night of the murder we understand Gemma had been paid a sum of money in O’Sullivan’s presence, and had also received a quantity of drugs that she was to sell on. Later that night we believe O’Sullivan strangled Gemma and stole the drugs and the money.

“He then went to considerable efforts to hide what he had done and to avoid detection. We believe he desecrated Gemma’s body in an attempt to persuade those who may judge him in the future that he was suffering from some sort of psychotic break down.

“Gemma’s life story is indeed a sad one and it is clear she made some bad choices. However, she had two children and a wider family who loved her and who hoped one day for a reconciliation with her. O’Sullivan’s actions have robbed them of that opportunity.”

choices for Longview retail scene

choices for Longview retail scene

Driving to Portland for a new stylish outfit isn’t always an option, and Michelle Philbrook hopes to give local women more choices for trendy new clothing without the commute. Her new boutique, Posh On Commerce, offers a mix of contemporary styles.

“Our lives are so hectic. We’re pulled in so many different ways that to run down to Portland to find a cute top at a last minute event because you’re going either on a date night or something popped up, we didn’t have a place to really shop like that,” Philbrook said Monday from inside her new boutique, which opened Oct. 15 at 1314 Commerce Ave. in downtown Longview.

“With us being so busy, we’re online, we’re shopping on the Internet. You don’t get to touch and you don’t get to feel that product anymore. Trying on is key. So that’s what I wanted: to bring that experience back to us, the women in town,” she added.

Immediately upon walking into the boutique, customers are greeted with light fragrance from burning candles, which emit scents such as Bourbon with vanilla and pumpkin spice.

The white walls, wood style laminate floors and modern decor provide a minimalist backdrop for the store’s clothing. Philbrook worked with vendors to create exclusivity, which means the vendors have agreed not to sell to any other stores within 30 miles.

“I think truly to keep people from coming in the doors you have to create newness, freshness. Things that (a customer) has seen that she can’t get anywhere else,” she said.

Many of the vendors are from the Pacific Northwest, such as Shay Coco, a designer from Toutle. However a few items are from elsewhere, such as the TokyoMilk line of lotions and fragrances in scents with names like “Let them Eat Cake.” The back of the store has a display of Brazilian leather handbags and wallets made by the brand Hobo. Although Nordstrom still sells the brand’s wallets, the purses can now only be found at specialty stores,
choices for Longview retail scene
she said.

Philbrook says she tries to select items for a range of budgets. Tank tops can start at $16, blouses range between $29 to $44 and dresses can go up to $129.

“Just the feedback I’ve been getting since the minute we opened the store is that I have not had any hesitation on the pricing. People in Longview, women in Longview, are just hungry for new fashion, new avenues to buy things in,” she said.

The boutique’s inventory changes constantly as Philbrook only orders “one run” sizes. (She only orders one style in a range of sizes once. When they sell out, she won’t buy that style again.) That avoids running “into another woman wearing the same top,” she joked.

Philbrook worked in corporate retail for Victoria’s Secret, Bon Marche and Macy’s. Over her 22 years in the retail industry, she’s worked as a buyer, a director of staffing and district director. Two years ago, Macy’s consolidated and gave Philbrook the option to move to a different city or resign. After 15 years at the company, she resigned and took a year off with her children before getting her new business started.

She and her husband, John, spent about two months remodeling the store after taking over the lease in August. They did most of the renovation work themselves or with the help of friends. They invested about $10,000 into freshening up the space.

She now has two part time employees, but still spends a lot of time interacting with customers, something she missed at her former job.

“I think that’s truly key, and that’s what I love about being here every day with the customers that come in. When they’re asking for something, I can probably find it for them and . they’re just ecstatic. So it’s nice to feel like you’re being listened to when you’re shopping,” she said.

The East Meets West Festival will include a day for Africa, a day for China, and will conclude Sunday with a full day Italian celebration called Viva Italia Viva Edmonton, organized by the Italian Youth Association of Edmonton.

There will also be some friendly competition, including a pizza eating contest, a four on four soccer tournament, and a Nonna (Italian grandma) lasagna cooking competition.

Association president Francesco Sorgiovanni says there will also be plenty for the kids to do.

“We’re going to have crafts like the Leaning Tower of Pisa made of candy, we’re going to have soccer ball hats little things like that to encourage the culture,” he says.

China’s richest village Huaxi has it’s own replicas of world famous landmarks

China’s richest village Huaxi has it’s own replicas of world famous landmarks

Huaxi, with its 2,000 official registered inhabitants, has long been recognised as the richest village in China each resident having at least 1.6 million yuan (173, 844) in the bank.

According to , the village has transformed into a haven where every resident is entitled to benefits such as free healthcare, education, a home and cooking oil.

In order to receive these benefits, every resident has to work seven days a week usually in the town’s industrial plant.

Huaxi is home to a huge skyscraper dubbed the Hanging Village of Huaxi.

Reaching 328 metres (1,076ft) into the sky in Huaxi, Jiangsu province, its closest rival is 600 miles away in Beijing and it is 18metres taller than the Shard in Central London.

Despite such a small population, the latest tower to be built there is 52 storeys higher than its closest rival in Huaxi and has enough capacity to fit the entire population of the village.

The skyscraper stands taller than Paris’s Eiffel Tower (324m) and the Chrysler Building (319m) in New York.

It had taken four years for the work to be finished on the 74 storey hotel and residential block at a cost of 3 billion yuan (301m).

Some have compared the building as looking like a trophy because at the top there is a huge sphere made out of glass while others wonder if it is sustainable in such a place as Huaxi.

There are 800 suites in the structure and it can hold around 2,000 people. There is an exhibition hall, a revolving restaurant and rooftop swimming pools and gardens.

Big building for a village: Huaixi has shown off its extravagant side by constructing a giant skyscraper with a five star hotel inside

Architectural replicas have become particularly popular in China in recent years.

French landmarks, such as the Eiffel Tower and Arc de triomphe, are particularly popular for replica makers.

Most recently,

a small statuette of Lady Liberty has appeared in Yunnan, south west China, inside a hotel garden.

However, there’s also been an increasing number of replica Chinese landmarks appearing around the country.

They have far fewer visitors than the real tourist sites, giving travellers more opportunities for photographs.

We probably shouldn’t have giggled when our lovely Beijing guide referred to Adidas as a Chinese brand. The German sportswear label is as much a part of the sensory experience of her city as cigarette smoke and fermented bean porridge.

I remember having a similar feeling when I landed in Los Angeles. The McDonald’s, Starbucks and Hollywood signs that flashed by as I drove to Santa Monica were familiar as the backdrop of at least a dozen movies. The signs were an essential part of the city.

In Beijing, it was the labels Adidas, Gucci, Kappa,
China's intoxicating capital
Burberry, Converse that were everywhere. Again, it felt like a sort of homecoming, or perhaps it was more a feeling of having landed at the control terminal of the universe.

Beijing is a crazy city of contradictions.

High rise apartments beat them to the sun every day, but the lush canopies make Beijing appear green from the ground,

even though anyone arriving by air will note it’s actually covered with a thick layer of brown gas.

That probably wouldn’t be the case if everyone still rode rickshaws but now for every squeaky old thing there seem to be five shiny Audis.
