Relax, Willie Nelson Didn’t Give Up Marijuana

From The Shepherd Express:



“Willie Nelson stopped smoking marijuana” was the top news of the week for anyone interested in the industry, even making its way to mainstream news sources. After all, the beloved country musician is a lifelong activist for the legalization of marijuana, one of the world’s best-known potheads and owner of a legal marijuana brand, Willie’s Reserve. He is also, allegedly, the only man alive able to out-smoke Snoop Dogg. That is to say, it was a shock when the Red Headed Stranger publicly announced that he stopped smoking.
"I have abused my lungs quite a bit in the past, so breathing is a little more difficult these days, and I have to be careful,” Nelson said in an interview with KSAT. “I started smoking cedar bark, went from that to cigarettes to whatever, and that almost killed me.” He added, “I don’t smoke anymore—take better care of myself today.” Of course, the headlines came out immediately, claiming Willie Nelson was done with pot.
However, the marijuana icon is still getting high, his son confirmed in a Wednesday, Dec. 4, tweet: “There is a lot of articles going around saying my father is no longer smoking weed. It’s almost 2020, how people ingest cannabis has changed. Between vaping, edibles, gummies, drops, etc. I think it’s safe to say Willie will never stop enjoying Mary Jane!” The sentiment was echoed through the Associated PressWillie’s Reserve also took to social media, proudly claiming that Nelson will “never stop” enjoying marijuana: “No pigs in the sky, Willie’s still getting high! At 86, Willie Nelson demonstrates there’s more than one way to get high.”

12-year-old girl arrested for posting death list on Snapchat, sheriff’s office says

A 12-year-old girl has been arrested after she threatened to kill students at her middle school in Florida, authorities said.
The student was arrested Friday evening. She faces two counts of a written threat to kill and false reporting concerning a firearm, the Broward County Sheriff’s Office said.
The sheriff’s office says the girl attends Falcon Cove Middle School in Weston, a community about 20 miles west of Fort Lauderdale.
Around 7 p.m. on Friday, a Falcon Cove Middle School student and her parent alerted sheriff’s office deputies in Weston about a threat posted on Snapchat that included a death list with students’ names, authorities said.
Another threat was posted to Snapchat later on Friday that “indicated the students were not safe and that they would be killed on Monday,” the sheriff’s office said.
The 12-year-old admitted to making the false threats, authorities said, and was taken to the Juvenile Assessment Center.
Falcon Cove Middle School will operate on its normal schedule of classes and activities on Monday, said Nadine Drew, a Broward County Public Schools spokeswoman.

A church nativity scene depicts Jesus, Mary and Joseph as refugees separated in cages


(CNN)A California church is displaying a nativity scene depicting Jesus, Mary and Joseph as refugees in cages to draw attention to the conditions faced by migrants seeking asylum in the United States.
The Claremont United Methodist Church, about 30 miles east of Los Angeles, posted the photo on its website showing the three held in separate cages topped with barbed wire. The baby Jesus is wrapped in a silver foil blanket.
Lead Pastor Karen Clark Ristine spoke with CNN affiliate KABC about the scene outside of the church. "We thought about the most famous refugee family in the world, the family of Jesus," Ristine said.
In a Facebook post, Ristine said the display came from the idea of "What if this family sought refuge in our country today?"

Documents show US leaders misled public on progress in Afghanistan War: report

Senior U.S. officials knowingly concealed evidence showing a lack of progress throughout the 18-year war in Afghanistan, according to a cache of documents obtained by the Washington Post.
The interviews, obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request, span the Bush, Obama and Trump administrations and reveal U.S. officials frequently acknowledged the nation was wasting vast amounts of money attempting to transform and Westernize the nation.
“After the killing of Osama bin Laden, I said that Osama was probably laughing in his watery grave considering how much we have spent on Afghanistan,” retired Navy SEAL Jeffrey Eggers, a White House staffer in the Bush and Obama administrations, said in a private interview.
Interviewees also describe a deliberate disinformation campaign meant to spin discouraging statistics as evidence the U.S. was prevailing in the war.
“Every data point was altered to present the best picture possible,” Bob Crowley, an Army colonel and senior counterinsurgency adviser to U.S. military commanders in 2013 and 2014, said in an interview.
“Surveys, for instance, were totally unreliable but reinforced that everything we were doing was right and we became a self-licking ice cream cone,” he added.
In 2015, Ret. Lt. Gen. Douglas Lute, who served as a top advisor on the war during the Bush and Obama administrations, told government interviewers “We were devoid of a fundamental understanding of Afghanistan — we didn’t know what we were doing,” according to the Post.
Lute went on to lament the deaths of U.S. military personnel that he blamed on bureaucratic entanglements between the State Department, the Pentagon and Congress.
John Sopko, head of the Office of the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), which conducted the interviews, told the newspaper the documents demonstrate “the American people have constantly been lied to” on Afghanistan.
SIGAR conducted more than 600 interviews for a 2014 initiative called “Lessons Learned,” meant to avoid the mistakes of the Afghanistan war for future U.S. military campaigns. These included Americans, NATO allies and Afghanistan officials.
SIGAR has made several of its reports public, but those lacked the blunt language and grim assessments found in the new interviews. For example, one 2018 report simply said the U.S. strategy was “not properly tailored to the Afghan context, and successes in stabilizing Afghan districts rarely lasted longer than the physical presence of coalition troops and civilians.”
The newspaper obtained more than 2,000 pages of unpublished notes and more than 400 interview transcripts after suing SIGAR for them twice. Numerous names are redacted, and the Post has sued for the names to be revealed. While a decision is still pending, the newspaper wrote that it chose to publish them now amid U.S./Taliban negotiations.
“We didn’t sit on it,” Sopko told the Post. “We’re firm believers in openness and transparency, but we’ve got to follow the law. . . . I think of any inspector general, I’ve probably been the most forthcoming on information.”
The Hill has reached out to the Pentagon for comment.

DOT says I-94 work to finish in June; 4 lanes open by New Year's

From The Journal Times.com:


RACINE — Widening work on Interstate 94 is on schedule to be completely finished by June, but drivers should have a much easier time getting around by the first few days of the new year, according to Wisconsin Department of Transportation spokesman Michael Pyritz.

All four lanes of the interstate should be open — with an emergency shoulder — from Highway G in Racine County to Highway 142 in Kenosha County by the end of the month or very early January, Pyritz said. The north segment of the project, from Highway G to College Avenue in Milwaukee County, will have three lanes with a shoulder open all winter long, Pyritz said, with four lanes open in June.
It’s progressing well,” he said.
In August, the DOT said four lanes were supposed to be open between highways 142 and G by the end of October, but the unusually rainy September pushed those plans back.
The lanes should be open “in the very near future, probably T-minus a month,” Pyritz said. “Hopefully T-minus a few weeks, but Mother Nature will have more control over that than we will.”
The Interstate 94 North-South project was first planned a decade ago, in 2009. The entire project encompassed a 35-mile reconstruction of the Interstate from the Illinois-Wisconsin state line all the way to College Avenue.
About half of the highway was widened through Kenosha County, but budget cuts in 2011 under former Gov. Scott Walker effectively killed the project for several years.
It wasn’t until 2017, when the state lured Foxconn to Mount Pleasant with a bevy of incentives, that the project got funding to continue. And it came back fast-tracked, with a so-called “blitz construction” method.
Crashes doubled or even tripled in certain spots of the work zone, and more than doubled across the entire 18-mile span, a Journal Times investigation found. Through June this year, there had been more than 1,000 work-zone crashes, resulting in more than 200 people injured, since work began in May 2018.

US flu season arrives early, driven by an unexpected virus



NEW YORK (AP) — The U.S. winter flu season is off to its earliest start in more than 15 years.
An early barrage of illness in the South has begun to spread more broadly, and there’s a decent chance flu season could peak much earlier than normal, health officials say.
The last flu season to rev up this early was in 2003-2004 — a bad one. Some experts think the early start may mean a lot of suffering is in store, but others say it’s too early to tell.
“It really depends on what viruses are circulating. There’s not a predictable trend as far as if it’s early it’s going to be more severe, or later, less severe,” said Scott Epperson, who tracks flu-like illnesses for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
There are different types of flu viruses, and the one causing illnesses in most parts of the country is a surprise. It’s a version that normally doesn’t abound until March or April.
That virus generally isn’t as dangerous to older people — good news, since most flu hospitalizations and deaths each winter occur in the elderly. However, such viruses can be hard on children and people younger than 50.
Louisiana was the first state to really get hit hard, with doctors there saying they began seeing large numbers of flu-like illnesses in October.
Children’s Hospital New Orleans has already seen more flu cases this fall than it saw all of last winter, said Dr. Toni Gross, the hospital’s chief of emergency medicine. Last month was the busiest ever at the hospital’s emergency department. Officials had to set up a triage system and add extra shifts, Gross said.
“It is definitely causing symptoms that will put you in bed for a week,” including fever, vomiting and diarrhea. But the hospital has not had any deaths and is not seeing many serious complications, she said.
Health officials tend to consider a flu season to be officially underway when — for at least three weeks in a row — a significant percentage of U.S. doctor’s office visits are due to flu-like illnesses. That’s now happened, CDC officials said this week.
The agency on Friday estimated that there have already been 1.7 million flu illnesses, 16,000 hospitalizations, and 900 flu-related deaths nationally.
The most intense patient traffic had been occurring in a six states stretching from Texas to Georgia. But in new numbers released Friday, CDC officials said the number of states with intense activity rose last week to 12. Flu is widespread in 16 states, though not necessarily at intense levels in each, the CDC said.
Last flu season started off as a mild one but turned out to be the longest in 10 years. It ended with around 49,000 flu-related deaths and 590,000 hospitalizations, according to preliminary estimates.
It was bad, but not as bad as the one before it, when flu caused an estimated 61,000 deaths and 810,000 hospitalizations. Those 2017-2018 estimates are new: The CDC last month revised them down from previous estimates as more data — including actual death certificates — came in.
In both of the previous two flu seasons, the flu vaccine performed poorly against the nasty predominant virus. It’s too early to say how well the vaccine is performing right now, Epperson said.
Epperson said there’s a chance the flu season will peak this month, which would be unusually early. Flu season usually doesn’t hit fever pitch until around February.
The early start suggests a lot Americans may be sick at the same time, said Dave Osthus, a statistician who does flu forecasting at Los Alamos National Laboratory. “This could be a precursor to something pretty bad. But we don’t know,” he said.
Gross is pessimistic. “I, personally, am preparing for the worst,” she said.

Revology Builds Classic Cars You Can Use Every Day

The Revology 1966 Mustang GT convertible on the road. Revology photo

Let’s say you love the looks of the first 1964 to 1966 Ford Mustang. After all, who doesn’t? The company sold more than 1.28 million of them in those three years, and the model has since become one of the most popular American classics. 
But suppose you want to commute in your first-generation Mustang. That’s when you discover the drawbacks of 1960s technology, including vague handling, marginal brakes, inefficient air conditioning, high fuel consumption, and a near total lack of safety equipment. That’s why Revology exists. The Orlando, Fla.-based company builds new/old fastback and convertible 1960s Mustangs that look original but perform like modern cars.
Do you love the car chase Mustang from the movie Bullitt? Well, the car was a 1968 GT fastback with a 390-cubic-inch engine and a four-speed manual, and it was undoubtedly rough idling, very thirsty, and brutal. 
But how about a tamed Mustang? Revology offers a track-focused 1968 Mustang R Spec 2+2 with the latest 460-horsepower “Coyote” V8, a smooth-shifting six-speed manual, AP Racing brakes, a Borla exhaust, and other “serious go-fast hardware.” It will run rings around the Bullitt car, and you can drive it anywhere while listening to the modern Bluetooth-enabled infotainment…for $235,500. The company offers a variety of other models, including early convertibles and Shelby GT350 and GT500 performance cars. 
Inside the Mustang GT. Revology photo
For $178,500, Revology will sell you a 1966 Mustang GT convertible, with either a manual or automatic transmission, and it will come with such features as CFC-free air conditioning, keyless entry, four-wheel disc brakes, and bright LED headlights. For $6,750, your car can be equipped with a full nappa leather interior, and there are many other options. 
Penta talked to Tom Scarpello, the former Ford and Nissan marketing specialist who is Revology’s founder and CEO. “Our customers are mostly male, though some are female,” he says. “Typically they are in their 50s and 60s and grew up with muscle cars.” 
Scarpello said Revology’s buyers come in four categories: “Been there, done that” customers, who have owned Ferraris, Singer Porsches, or Koenigseggs, and want the latest thing; serious collectors, who may also own faithfully restored classics; “reward to self” clients who have worked hard, built businesses, and raised kids, and now perhaps want their old Mustang back; and “experience seekers,” who like the fact that the car gets looks (more than Ferraris!) when cruising in the Hamptons. One reason people buy Revology cars is because they want to actually drive them.
High-dollar classic restorations are nice to look at, but often a challenge on the road. And they’re frequently too valuable to risk in supermarket parking lots. “Some of our clients use their cars a lot,” Scarpello says. “We had a customer pick up his GT500 here in Orlando and drive it home 3,000 miles to California.”
According to Scarpello, “The amount of work to make a car look good is one thing, but to make it actually function is quite another. Our cars are built to be driven, and we do the work to make them drivable in any weather, with nothing bottoming out or scraping.”
The modern powerplant in Revology's GT350. Revology photo
Revology says it was the first company to be licensed by Ford to produce copies of its cars, though others (such as Gateway Bronco) also have that privilege now. Revology cars come in two varieties, those based on original Mustangs with Ford VIN numbers and complete recreations with Revology’s own numbers. For customers, there’s probably not too much difference between them, as in either case, the cars go through total transformations. Just about any trim or body part for classic Mustangs is available today.
Life would be simpler for Revology and other manufacturers if a provision passed by Congress and signed by President Barack Obama as part of the 2015 highway bill would go into effect. The low-volume manufacturer program would allow each small company with total production of 5,000 or less to sell up to 325 from-scratch replicas each year, provided their engines are certified for current emissions. 
Today, restorations of old cars aren’t a problem, but ground-up recreations that don’t meet federal standards for crash testing, airbag installation, and other hurdles are classified as “kit cars,” which complicates their sale as complete, turn-key vehicles. The companies have to sell them as incomplete chassis, with separate powertrain installation. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) was slated to issue regulations by December 2016, but three years later they have still not appeared.

“This has really hampered my business,” says Lance Stander of Superformance, which builds high-quality replicas of Shelby Mustangs, Cobras, and other cars. The trade group Specialty Equipment Market Association ( SEMA ) sued the Department of Transportation in October, urging Secretary Elaine Chao to “expeditiously implement” the law. Asked about the lawsuit, a NHTSA spokesman responded via email, “The agency is aware of the filing, but does not comment on matters relating to pending litigation.”
Scarpello says he’s “obviously disappointed” by the drawn-out approval process. “We see the legislation as providing a lot of economic opportunity to companies in an emerging segment.”

Foxconn's Terry Gou visits Milwaukee after Trump tells him to 'bring more jobs to Wisconsin'

Foxconn Technology Group founder Terry Gou visited Milwaukee on Friday, just one day after a meeting with President Donald Trump that included discussion of the company’s much-watched Wisconsin project.
Speaking to some 500 people gathered at the Hilton Milwaukee City Center for a Foxconn holiday reception, Gou said he had come from “a working meeting at the White House.”
Foxconn’s former chairman, who stepped down earlier this year to run for president of Taiwan but still has a hand in company affairs, attended a White House holiday party, then met privately with Trump in the executive residence.
Foxconn’s stated plans to build a flat-screen plant in Racine County, invest $10 billion and create 13,000 Wisconsin jobs were a key topic between Gou and Trump.
The Foxconn project, which stands to receive an unprecedented level of Wisconsin taxpayer support, has been unfolding slowly and is eyed skeptically by many in a politically charged environment.

With weed legalization in neighboring states, Wisconsin employers are rethinking marijuana policies

From JSOnline:

, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

The laws about marijuana in Wisconsin aren't changing. But recent legalization of recreational marijuana in neighboring states and shifting societal norms are causing employers to rethink how to treat cannabis use. 
Calls to MRA's human resources hotline about workplace drug testing increased in recent months. Employers are asking just how exactly the changing tides will affect them. 
"It's still a little hazy," said Michael Hyatt, human resources government affairs director at MRA. Pewaukee-based MRA is one of the largest employer associations in the country, with more than 4,000 member organizations. 
Legal sales of recreational weed began Dec. 1 in Michigan. In Illinois, legal marijuana sales start on the first of the year. The legislation allows anyone over 21 with valid state ID to purchase marijuana from licensed dealers. 
Michigan and Illinois are the 10th and 11th states to allow recreational marijuana. 
Even with the legal sale of marijuana, landowners can ban cannabis use and employers can prohibit employees from having THC (the psychoactive agent) in their systems.

The verbal and mental abuse Alderman Sandy Weidner received from former Mayor John Dickert in public meetings - and that continued abuse under Mayor Cory Mason and City Attorney Scott Letteney needs to be properly addressed - and Sandy needs to be exonerated and reimbursed for her legal bills, pain and suffering.
It has already been determined by the WI Court of Appeals that CITY OF RACINE is a lawless actor - Racist, and unlawfully took away the property and Business of an African-American male - whose name is Thomas Holmes and DBA Park 6.
In the action CITY OF RACINE took against an African-American Male - the Complainant - then Chief of Police Kurt Wahlen - admitted that he was not cognizant of the requirements of law (as that he would have to swear his Complaint was true) and then claimed that he couldn't remember if he swore to the statement or not. So CITY OF RACINE has a Police Chief - Kurt Wahlen - who DOESN'T know the law and has a faulty memory. Those are the facts.
What has to be determined next - is why John Dickert, Cory Mason, and Scott Letteney want to abuse, prosecute and persecute Alderman Sandy Weidner for asking questions and dissenting.
I eagerly await the Courts decision.

Forth Worth Doughboys - Nancy Jane

REAL. RACIST. RACINE.

From Racine WI - Sin City:

Perhaps former RUSD Superintendent Ann Laing was correct when she stated:
“African American families don’t know how to make good choices for their children”
But then again – City of Racine refuses to apply the written rule of law fairly and equally – see:
2012 WI APP 123 COURT OF APPEALS OF WISCONSIN PUBLISHED OPINION
Case No.: 2011AP2282
PARK 6LLC AND THOMAS J.HOLMES, D/B/A PARK 6, PLAINTIFFS-RESPONDENTS, V. CITY OF RACINE,CITY OF RACINE COMMON COUNCIL,CITY OF RACINE PUBLIC SAFETY AND LICENSING COMMITTEE AND KURT WAHLEN, DEFENDANTS-APPELLANT
Words have meaning.
See: ‘Moral question of our time’: Area officials, business leaders talk race
Actions always mean more than words – because most Men and Women seem to be natural born liars.
In 2012 WI APP 123 COURT OF APPEALS OF WISCONSIN PUBLISHED OPINION
Case No.:  2011AP2282 Complete Title of Case:  PARK 6LLC AND THOMAS J.HOLMES, D/B/A PARK 6, PLAINTIFFS-RESPONDENTS,      V. CITY OF
RACINE,CITY OF RACINE COMMON COUNCIL,CITY OF RACINE PUBLIC SAFETY AND LICENSING COMMITTEE AND KURT WAHLEN, DEFENDANTS-APPELLANT
The Man whose rights were violated went by the name Thomas J. Holmes DBA (Doing Business As) Park6. He is an African American Male.
The Defendants – who violated his rights – took his property – and his Business – by UNLAWFUL means  are:
1. CITY OF RACINE
2. CITY OF RACINE COMMON COUNCIL
3. CITY OF RACINE PUBLIC SAFETY AND LICENSING COMMITTEE
4. KURT WAHLEN (then Chief of Police)
So when I say that when the State Sponsored Terrorists who violated the rights of African American Thomas J. Holmes have been properly prosecuted and incarcerated – then we can talk about race in Racine – I am justified and proper. Stop disguising the hate and cover-ups.Fair is fair – equal treatment under law is the law – even though City of Racine refuses to act that way.
