Saturday at The Rock

first_imgWhen most Georgians think about Rock Eagle, images of 4-H’ers enjoying summer camp come to mind. But long before Rock Eagle 4-H Center was established, the property was home to an extended pioneer family, a bustling country inn and a large working farm. Visitors can visit the pioneer site during the next session of Saturday at the Rock, which is set for Oct. 19 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at the center in Eatonton. As part of the Georgia 4-H Environmental Education Program, a turn of the century homestead was recreated at Rock Eagle. “The authenticity of Rock Eagle’s pioneer site transports visitors back in time. Participating in traditional homestead activities brings awareness to youth and adults alike about the differences of life in the early 1900s,” said Matt Hammons, Rock Eagle program coordinator.The center’s interpretive staff gives tours of a renovated saddlebag house, a smokehouse, teaching garden, a chicken coup and more. Visitors can even tend the garden, use hand tools and pump water. Participants should wear comfortable shoes as there is a half-mile hike to reach the site. This Saturday at the Rock session is appropriate for all ages and costs $5 per person. Advanced registration is required. For more information, call Hammons at (706) 484-2862 or email him at [email protected] Saturday at the Rock programs take place the third Saturday of each month, excluding December.

U.S. Targets New, Emerging Drug-Trafficking Gangs in Colombia

first_imgBy Dialogo February 11, 2011 The Narcotics Section of the U.S. Attorney’s Office has created a special unit dedicated to dismantling emerging drug-trafficking criminal gangs in Colombia, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Miami announced on 9 February. The U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida, Wilfredo Ferrer, said that this new investigative section is designed to identify gangs (Bacrim) that have arisen in Colombia to fill the power vacuum left by the fall of the Norte del Valle cartel and the dismantling of the paramilitary United Self-Defense Units of Colombia (AUC). “The United States government will not rest until we eradicate the BACRIMs and destroy their ability to ply their trade, as we did the former drug cartels,” Ferrer said. On 8 February, a Miami grand jury returned an indictment against Diego Pérez Henao, alias Diego Rastrojo, a thirty-nine-year-old Colombian believed to be the leader of one of these new criminal gangs, known as “Los Rastrojos” [The Stubble]. The indictment charges Pérez Henao with conspiracy to manufacture and distribute large amounts of cocaine, in the knowledge that it would be illegally imported into the United States. If found guilty, Pérez Henao would face a maximum sentence of life imprisonment, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Miami indicated. U.S. charges are also pending against eight other members of these gangs, the office added. Colombian “law enforcement’s success in removing the leadership of the major Colombian drug trafficking organizations has resulted in smaller groups, or bands of criminals, coming together to continue large-scale importation of cocaine into the United States,” the special agent in charge of the DEA office in Miami, Mark R. Trouville, indicated. “Los Rastrojos” are one of seven criminal gangs, made up in part of former paramilitaries, operating in Colombia today. The regrouping of drug traffickers in these emerging groups is a concern for and one of the priorities of Juan Manuel Santos’s Colombian administration, which relies on strong U.S. support for the fight against drugs.last_img read more

Jerry Jones uses a weirdly gruesome analogy to describe Cowboys contract issues

first_img Dak Prescott turns down $30M per year offer from Cowboys, report says Jones’ response didn’t exactly clear things up.”Picture you were a driver of a car and you had a wreck and your hand was almost severed off, but you didn’t understand your anatomy,” Jones said, via The Dallas Morning News. “You look down, you’re spurting blood, you open the door, and run to the woods, and either die bleeding to death or shock. The educated man looks down, knows his anatomy, squeezes and knows his best chance is to wait for help. That’s because he’s been there a lot and done that. So I’m squeezing and waiting for help.” Related News Wait, what does that mean? Jones didn’t clear that up, either.”Pull it out of my …,” Jones said. “We’re having an anatomy lesson. The best one of all. I wish I were that quick.”It’s unclear who is going to “help” or how that will aid in the Cowboys’ contract issues. Elliott has two years left on his rookie deal, but has been absent from training camp and reportedly has threatened to hold out for the season if he doesn’t get his desired deal.Prescott reportedly turned down a contract that would pay him $30 million a year and instead is seeking a deal that would average $40 million a year.Both Prescott and Cooper said at the start of training camp that they aren’t worried about their contracts.Still, with the Cowboys’ camp in Southern California ending Thursday, the team isn’t close to a deal with any of the offensive stars.But Jones reiterated his stance, this time with a little clearer analogy as he pointed to the recent past as an example of when things go wrong relative to the salary cap, pointing when the Cowboys were forced to release franchise sacks leader DeMarcus Ware after the 2013 season. He signed with the Broncos and won a Super Bowl ring. “It’s not like me going out here and buying something that I have to decide whether I want to just spend to have that,” Jones told reporters (via “That’s not it at all. It’s that I’ve got to realize that I can let a DeMarcus Ware out of here because I don’t have enough money because I paid it to too many others.”That’s happened to me, and I don’t want it to happen again. And we’ve got some top talent here.”Translation: The bottom line is still the bottom line. Michael Irvin thinks Cowboys need Ezekiel Elliott to win another Super Bowl O.J. Simpson weighs in on Ezekiel Elliott’s contract, Antonio Brown’s return to camp Jerry Jones has used odd analogies a time or three to describe football, but this one might take the cake.While at training camp in Oxnard, California, Jones on Tuesday was asked about the contract situations with quarterback Dak Prescott, running back Ezekiel Elliott and receiver Amari Cooper.last_img read more

Arraignment delayed for DUI suspect

first_imgSerrato is accused of hitting Martin Granado Jr. of Whittier on July 25 as he walked home on Lambert Road, west of Mills Avenue in the unincorporated area of Whittier, according to CHP reports. If convicted, Serrato faces a minimum of four years or a maximum of 10 years in prison. Ramirez also continued the young woman’s bail of $100,000. Sitting in the back of the courtroom taking in the proceedings were more than a dozen of Granado family members and friends. Deputy District Attorney Robert Britton did not fight the defense’s continuation request. • Photo Gallery: Martin Granado funeralWHITTIER – The arraignment Thursday for a Pico Rivera woman charged with gross vehicular manslaughter in the death of a 15-year-old California High School student while intoxicated was continued to Oct. 4. The attorney for defendant Melissa Serrato, 27, asked Judge Daniel P. Ramirez of Whittier Superior Court, Division Three, for the continuance to give a defense expert time to go over the evidence. “We need a little time for our expert to go over the evidence collected because we believe it shows the charge against my client is wrong,” attorney Stephan A. DeSales, said outside the courtroom. “It’s not unusual for the defense to want a continuance to have their experts go over the evidence,” he said. By law, Britton said, his office cannot disclose details about the case until after the preliminary hearing. According to CHP records, Serrato was heading west on Lambert in a 2007 Toyota Matrix at about 40 mph when she hit Granado, who would have been a sophomore at Cal High this fall. He later died of his injuries at UC Irvine Medical Center. Serrato was administered a breath test at the scene but authorities have not released the results. For the Granado family, the younger Martin’s death was the second they endured in a week’s span. The elder Martin’s cousin, Ralph Granado, 55, of Covina was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver July 20 on the San Bernardino (10) Freeway. He was rear-ended by a Toyota Yaris, and the impact knocked him off his motorcycle. As he tried to stand up, Ralph Granado was fatally struck by another vehicle that fled the scene. Authorities are still looking for the driver of the second vehicle. The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the death of Ralph Granado.
