house of fraser handbag Homeless man freezes to death after being turned away from housing center

(WTEN) New York State is investigating after a homeless man died after being turned away from a housing center.

His name was Kendal Haight. For 18 years, he stayed at the Homeless Action Committee on North Pearl Street in Albany.

“Kendal was an incredible human being,”Executive Director Donna DeMaria said.”He helped staff out, he cooked all of the meals when he was sober. Staff called on him to help with everything.”

DeMaria said Haight was beloved by the staff but like many of those receiving housing, he battled with alcoholism.

On Dec. 7, Haight tried to enter the building.

“Kendal came to the door, and he was searched. A bottle of vodka was discovered,” DeMaria said.

Protocol does not allow anyone to enter the building with drugs or alcohol. He was given the option to either ditch the bottle or stay outside for another hour and finish it.

DeMaria said he chose the bottle and the cold.

“We would have let him in if he returned, but he didn’t,” she said. “That was the last time that we saw him.”

His body was found the next day. He had frozen to death overnight.

“Our staff, myself included, are grieving,” DeMaria said. “This is one of the biggest losses that we’ve had.”

The state has opened an investigation into Haight’s death and if the organization was out of line for turning him away.

Attorney Peter Scagnelli says HAC is fully cooperating.

“This should not destroy HAC,” he said.

Now, DeMaria wants to change the rules and prevent future tragedies.

“We have to come up with alternatives,” she said.

The state has not yet released any comment on its investigation.

Discount mulberry bag outlet uk Outlet Homeless Man Comes to Rescue of Columbia Police Officer

Columbia, SC (WLTX) A Columbia man received special recognition by the Columbia Police Department (CPD)for his brave efforts in helping with a recent arrest.

On Tuesday, a CPD officer was attempting an arrest of a man at the S Mart gas station on Elmwood Avenue.

The man was accused of punching the gas station clerk in the face and threatening to harm her and another person with a knife, while refusing to let them leave.

The officer tased the suspect and used pepper spray, but was not able to restrain him, until Cray Turmon sprung into action.

“I just went a total blank,” says Turmon. “I saw an opportunity to help this lady and I didn’t think about what could happen to me.”

Turmon was walking to the S Mart when he saw everything go down.

“I wouldn’t normally do something like that, but my instinct said just go.”

Because of his bravery, the officer was able to make the arrest. On Wednesday, CPD Chief Skip Holbrook awarded him with a certificate for his “extraordinary actions to preserve life and aid public safety.”

“I really appreciate all of the officers,” says Turmon. “This time I’m not on the other end of the law. I’m on the right end of the law this time.”

At one point in his life, Turmon says he was on the wrong side of the law. Former DUI arrests made him lose his license, job and his home. Now he’s with Transitions, working to get his life back on track. He says he was more than willing to help the officer.

“Good tackle! That’s what she told me, good tackle. I saw her again today and she said ‘I’m glad you were there.’ I said I was glad I could be a help.”

The man who was arrested at the gas station, Donald S. Brown, is now being held at the Richland County jail.

Brown’s been charged with attempted murder, armed robbery, kidnapping, possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime and resisting arrest.

mulberry heart keyring Homeless in Central Illinois

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. In Downtown Bloomington, business owners have expressed concern over loitering outside their stores. Advocates are working on solutions to help hundreds right here in our community.

If you ask what it like to be homeless in Bloomington Normal, Andre Moreno would tell you, “It just rough out here,”

“If you walk around this town at midnight, you see people all over the place,” Moreno explains. “Most of us are really good people. We just down on our luck.”

Moreno has spent the last four months living without a roof over his head.

“I slept in some goofy places,” he says. “Sleeping on the concrete ain good for you”

Moreno is one of nearly 250 people in Bloomington Normal dealing with homelessness at any one time. He explains he a carpenter by trade and hasn been able to find work because of an injury, leaving him with no way to pay for a place to live.

“You won go hungry here, because you can eat almost anywhere,” says Moreno. “The hard part is finding a place to crash. They only keep you so long at the Sali, Salvation Army.”

The Salvation Army Safe Harbor Shelter is the only shelter in town that allows people dealing with addiction or substance abuse to stay. There a constant waiting list

Director Gaby Bontea explains that the organization wants to help everyone that it can. People can stay up to eight weeks to help them get up on their feet.

But Moreno says there aren enough beds to help everyone.

“Once you get your confirmation card and stuff to get in, it could still take you a month to get in there, because a bed has got to open up.”

And Safe Harbor is one of only two emergency shelters in the Twin Cities.

Home Sweet Home Ministries also operates a shelter, which is almost always running at capacity. There no limit to how long someone can stay.

“As long as people are working toward their goals, they welcome to stay here,” explains Executive Director Mary Ann Pullins.

With the shelters full, many people have to make other sleeping arrangements, like tents, cars, or the sidewalks. Mareno says, despite negative stereotypes, most of the people dealing with homelessness are not dangerous.

“All of my friends that I hung out with, almost none of us steal or lie. Yes,
discount mulberry handbags Homeless in Central Illinois
we ask for money, panhandling, I won lie. You gotta survive somehow.” he says.

Lori Kimbrough, Director of PATH Homeless Services says, “Usually folks who are out on our streets . have a mental health concern or a substance abuse issue. Generally, they not going to be harmful to anyone except for unfortunately themselves.”

“A lot of us drink, like he was saying, stressed out, life on the streets,” Moreno admits. “If I got work, I probably wouldn drink.”

Downtown business owners have expressed concerns about people asking for money outside of their shops, and driving customers away. Kimbrough says business owners can always call her department and someone will come out to try and help.

“We try to get them a little at time to take a few services here and there,” she says.

But advocates agree the ultimate solution is creating more affordable housing.

“It would take an individual working two full time jobs at minimum wage to be able to afford a two bedroom apartment in Bloomington Normal,” explains Pullins.

Bontea adds, at Safe Harbor, “We have people that are progressing and doing well, but we keep extending their stay because they on a waiting list for housing.”

The road to more low income, supportive housing requires collaboration from advocates, residents and community leaders.

According to community survey over the last few years, the public cost to support someone who must live on the street can be up to $17,000, with visits to hospitals and jails. The cost to establish permanent affordable housing is estimated to be either equal or lower the the current price tag.

PATH has brought up the idea of a tiny house community. Pullins says affordable housing also has to have support systems in place, to make it more sustainable.

“We will never be able to have no one experiencing homelessness,” explained Kimbrough. “If we can say no one is experiencing homelessness for longer than 30 days, then I think that the light at the end of our tunnel. We done what we can do.”

Susan Bek, of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Ventura, smiles as she says a blessing over Ox, a mastiff at the Canine Adoption and Rescue League facility in Santa Paula.(Photo: RICHARD QUINN/SPECIAL TO THE STAR)Buy PhotoHomeless dogs at the Canine Adoption Rescue League received a special blessing on Saturday, when a handful of members from St. Paul’s Episcopal Church sprinkled holy water on each pooch.

Although the canines cannot speak for themselves, they know when someone is showing them unconditional love, Whitney said.

“They’re super thankful because many of them are here for a long time,” she said. “This is their whole world they don’t get to go home. They live here.”

The blessings with holy water were led by the Rev. Susan Bek of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Ventura. Before the blessings began, Bek blessed a bucket of water with help from two young children who are members of her congregation. With all of their hands in the bucket of water, Bek said a prayer to make the water holy.

“We ask your blessing upon all of the pets and stuffed animals who bring us such joy,” Bek said during the prayer. “We pray for those who are among us in this world and those who have passed on to the next.”

After the water was blessed, Bek and the congregation members blessed every dog on site by dipping a sprig into the holy water to sprinkle on each pooch.

On Saturday, all 86 dogs on site received a blessing, including Buffy, a 10 month old pit bull mix; Mac, an 8 year old American bull dog mix; and Loki, a 7 year old Chow. If the dogs weren’t in their kennels, their space also got a blessing.

The effort was in alignment with St. Paul’s ongoing blessing of the animals, which takes place every year at the chapel in Ventura.

“Every year we bless the animals as we remember the life and example of St. Francis,” Bek explained of St. Francis of Assisi, who is known as the patron saint of animals. “We always have a blessing of the animal’s service, and we always do an outreach project for animals.”

Beck added that “we bless and pray for people all the time. Caring for the animals and for all of creation is important, too.”

Jennifer Golland, a congregation member at St. Paul’s, participated on Saturday because she loves animals and wanted to support her church and perhaps look into adopting a dog.

“I want to show how valuable dogs are and to show that they matter,” said Golland, of Ventura. “They’re friends to people, they’re companions, and we have a lot of guide dogs that help people. They’re not just pets they have value.”

Congregation member Grace Dunlevy brought her two young children, including Jamie, age 2, and his big sister, Rosie, age 3.

“We believe in the value of all creatures and these ones especially because they’re homeless and don’t have families that love them,” Dunlevy said. “We talk about that a lot at home. We have two kitties and one is adopted from the streets. The initial connection was made a few years ago through the church’s reach committee, which is dedicated to finding ways to reach out to the world in the name of Christ and meet people where they are, in their everyday lives, with a message of love and hope. “We liked the idea, but were trying to come up with a project that every member of our church could participate in if they wanted.”

Discount mulberry bags on sale ebay Outlet Homegrown talent comes together for Aug

Homegrown talent comes together for Aug. 15 flood benefit stadium concertMike Bell, Calgary HeraldOn Monday morning, organizers announced the plans for Alberta Flood Aid which will take place Aug. 15 at McMahon Stadium. The preliminary lineup of acts includes homegrown talent Jann Arden, Corb Lund and Loverboy, as well as a host of other national and international superstars, such as Randy Bachman, Matthew Good, The Sheepdogs, The Sadies, Colin James, Johnny Reid, Tom Cochrane and southern Alberta based icon Ian Tyson. Comedian and Corner Gas star Brent Butt has been tapped as the host for the event.

All of the proceeds from Alberta Flood Aid will go to the Calgary Foundation’s Flood Rebuilding Fund, which was set up to support the long term rebuilding of communities in southern Alberta, including many of the hardest hit areas, such as High River.

On hand for the announcement at McMahon were Alberta’s minister of culture and community spirit, Heather Klimchuk, the chair of Alberta Flood Aid Peter Jurisic, and Calgary’s own Arden, who says she’s been heartened by the reaction by the city to the devastation and proud of her fellow citizens.

“I really am blown away how the community came together. . . ,” Arden said after reading the list of artists who would appear at the benefit.

“We live in a fast, quickly building city and everyone’s busy doing stuff. And when this happened it was that real small town sense of, ‘I’m your neighbour. I might live in Temple and you live in Midnapore but what can I do to help you, because we’re OK where we are?’

“It was so touching on a personal level, on every level of how people came together to help each other.

As for the star studded lineup thus far more acts are expected to be announced in the coming days that, too, is something she’s proud to be a part of, and vows to make her mark on it, in her own inimitable way.

“I’m having a bra specially made for this thing,” she said jokingly.

“We want to make this inclusive, we want it to be a community event,” said Jurisic of the ticket price for the concert, which he first conceived a mere 10 days ago. “We want to attract as many people as possible.”

For those unable to attend or who live outside of the southern Alberta area, talks are ongoing about securing a broadcaster or broadcasters to televise the concert, possibly giving it a telethon aspect, with discussions also underway to stream it live.

There are also plans to possibly hold coinciding concerts Edmonton and Winnipeg for which Calgary held a benefit for in 1997 when Manitoba was, itself, devastated due to flooding of the Red River with nothing yet confirmed.

“This is fluid sorry another bad pun but we’re gonna see what we can do to raise as much money as possible,” Jurisic said, noting it was important to get as much information out there as possible to make an immediate impact and start raising awareness.

And, in keeping with the theme of the community coming together, that also includes raising awareness of other flood relief benefits, that are or will be taking place in the city and surrounding area over the course of the next few weeks.

“There’s other events around, we’re asking you to support ours and others, we very much appreciate it,” Jurisic said. “We encourage you to promote and support all of the events that are going on.”

One of those that Alberta Flood Aid is loosely affiliated with is an Aug. 4 country music concert at the Jubilee Auditorium called Halo High Water, which will also be benefiting the Flood Rebuilding Fund. The concert is being organized by singer Tom Jackson, who will also perform along with other Canadian stars such as Paul Brandt, George Canyon, Jim Cuddy, Susan Aglukark, Carolyn Dawn Johnson, Dean Brody, Brett Kissel and traditional First Nation’s artists. It will also be broadcast on CBC TV and Radio, and the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network, with a telethon component.

Ticat veteran, who had never been here before, walked hesitantly across the track at Alumni Stadium looked around a little dazedly at the garish, checker board end zone, and said, ‘so this is home, eh?’Make the best of it, because the slightly bemused, fish out of water, expression that was on many of the Ticats’ faces as they filed off their buses from Hamilton dressed in practice gear and carrying their pads is the same expression that visiting teams will have this year. Only they won’t have the rest of the season to get used to it as the Cats do.field advantage at Guelph started Saturday morning with that bus trip, and you could tell that partway through the Cats’ black and gold practice, they had become accustomed to their surroundings. There is still a game day procedure to go through, true, since the Cats, and the opposition, will dress in specially modified portables near the adjacent field house.And that’s not as rinky dink as it sounds. The locker rooms are huge, bigger than at Ivor Wynne. (of course your bathroom is bigger than the visitors’ room at Ivor Wynne was).the team gets the tour of the facilities off the field, and realize how much work went into refurbishing this stadium and how so many little details were anticipated, it’s likely to give them a lot of faith in the organization. And that’s never a bad thing for a football team.Anyway, Saturday was an important step in getting a leg up on the visiting teams who have a slight advantage to start with since they’ll stay in Guelph, about a mile from the stadium, while the Cats have to bus up on game day. Not that it’s an arduous trek from Hamilton, and it can have its unifying forces too, sort of like a moving locker room speech. But the biggest leg up on this, as the organization knows, is to get a few wins under the belt early. Then this really does become a home field.

mulberry shepton mallet Holocaust survivor to speak at Memorial Center in Farmington Hills

The Holocaust Memorial Center Zekelman Family Campus in Farmington Hills will observe International Holocaust Remembrance Day on Jan. by Holocaust survivor Henry Friedman, who creates sculptures that convey his experiences in concentration camps.

Attendance at Friedman talk is included with museum admission.

Friedman was born in 1924 in Rastenberg, Germany. He was 16 when he was sent to the first of seven concentration camps. He and two brothers were liberated from the Mauthausen Gusen camp in Austria by American troops in May 1945.

In 1960, Friedman began sculpting figurines using his welding skills. He later shifted the focus of his art, creating sculptures as a way of conveying his personal experiences during the Holocaust.

Three of Friedman sculptures, Soldiers, and Moley Rachamim, are featured at the holocaust museum, 28123 Orchard Lake Road, in connection with the new exhibit, Through Ashes, which runs Jan. 21 March 27.

Soldiers serves as a memorial to honor the American soldiers who gave their lives in World War II. The base is composed of rifle barrels that point toward the viewer, symbolizing the horror felt by those exiled by the Nazis. The front of the sculpture depicts an extermination camp containing a gas chamber and crematorium; behind it lies two Jewish stars and a cross. These religious symbols are meant to represent the many religions practiced by those who lost their lives serving in the military. Above lies a soldier angel carrying souls into heaven.

is framed by armament, just as the Jews were surrounded by the armament possessed by the SS and Gestapo inside the ghettos. At the top of the piece, there is a family enclosed inside a Jewish star. The star and Jewish family are engulfed by flames coming out of a swastika in the center of the sculpture. The people open mouths are crying for help. At the bottom of the piece lies a gas chamber accompanied by misleading signs. Overhead, there is a skull symbolizing death in the extermination camps. In the center of the piece, there is a hand with the letters inscribed. These letters are identical to those on Friedman that marked him as an inmate in a Konzentrationslager.

While working on Moley Rachamim, which translates to God have mercy, Friedman had the idea to sculpt a Jewish cemetery as the central focus of the piece. However, this soon evolved into an extermination camp. As Friedman stated, extermination camp is a Jewish cemetery. The base of the piece depicts the stars and galaxies that make up our universe. Above lies the angel of death taking the souls of the murdered people to heaven. In his arms lie two thunderbolts with a Torah scroll above. On top of the Torah lies the extermination camp surrounded by handmade barbed wire.

Through Ashes is an exhibition of works by artist Bruce Gendelman, who captures the Holocaust through a series of textural oil paintings and photographs. The exhibition conveys the role of contemporary art in educating new audiences about the Holocaust in the upcoming era, when all Holocaust survivors will be gone.
