    Volunteers Undergo Training For Animals Affected By Natural Disasters

    July 28th, 2014

    VILONIA, AR- A group of people in Central Arkansas are prepared to undergo training when it comes to emergency animal rescue. After the April 27th tornado, Faulkner County leaders say it became apparent there was no clear plan to help injured livestock or other large animals.

    This weekend in Mississippi, specialized veterinarians will teach Arkansas volunteers how to care for large animals in a natural disaster. Community members say its important to get more people trained so they know what to do and how to help, if faced with a similar situation again.

    We saw horses that were hurt, big cuts in them, says Donna Waugh, K9 Scent Trainer.

    Polk Bros. Park a reminder of haggling history

    July 28th, 2014

    I dearly hope that when the Polk Bros. Foundation bought the naming rights to a new park at Navy Pier, the $20 million purchase price was set by haggling.

    You know how that works? A seller starts with an asking price more than a little on the high side, and the buyer, shaking his head in disbelief, counters with an offer equally unrealistic. They go another round, maybe more, until they both budge and a deal is struck.

    So I can imagine Sol and Sam Polk rolling over in their graves if teams of high-priced lawyers in three-piece suits came to terms on the Navy Pier deal without one side crying: Youre robbing me blind! The other shouting back: This is my last offer before I walk!...

    Jersey City one of worst cities for recreation; Newark dead last: report

    July 28th, 2014

    Despite Jersey Citys burgeoning arts community and rapid growth in recent years, one website says it is one of the worst cities for recreation in the country.

    WalletHub.com looked at the general financial cost of recreation, park quality and the availability of entertainment and recreational facilities to rank Americas best and worst cities for recreation. Weather was also a factor.

    Out of the 100 largest cities in the United States, Jersey City came in at a very dismal No. 95. Its neighbor, Newark, came in dead last.

    Jersey City also came in ahead of Charlotte, NC, Fremont, Calif., Chula Vista, Calif. and Laredo, Tx.

    For those living in JC, this may come as a surprise...

    Recreation and Parks hosts Special Olympics tournament

    July 27th, 2014


    Lanes at the Albany Bowl-A-Rama were full Friday for a special tournament.

    The Recreation and Parks Department hosted the fourth Albany Strikers Classic Tournament.

    The invitation only tournament brought in more than 120 Special Olympians from all over Georgia.

    Organizers and athletes said bowling is a great sport.

    I look forward to this event every year because Special Olympics is near and dear to my heart, and its so much fun to be able to provide this great recreational opportunity for people with intellectual disabilities, said Kristin Caso with Recreation and Parks.

    I bowl Tuesday nights. Its relaxing. Its like my home, like...

    "Crash One: Broken Language" at Lawrence Fine Art

    July 27th, 2014

    Lawrence Fine Art will open Crash One: Broken Language at its East Hampton gallery beginning Thurday, July 24 with an opening reception Saturday, July 26 from 5-8 pm.

    Crash was one of the first of the 1970s subway writers to transition to canvas and helped pioneer the development of Street Art as a recognized art form. In 1980, Crash was signed by Sidney Janis, one of the first gallerists to promote “post-graffiti” artists. That year he also curated Graffiti Art Success for America at Fashion MODA in the South Bronx. This groundbreaking exhibition is viewed as a launching point in legitimizing the graffiti movement, connecting street artists with the downtown fine arts world....

    Site finds Cincinnati No. 1 in nation for recreation

    July 26th, 2014

    Wallethub.com analyzed the 100 largest US cities, looking at 24 metrics covering areas such as recreation costs, park quality and entertainment facilities, as well as weather conditions.

    The analysis found that Cincinnati was No. 1, giving it a No. 1 rank for recreation facilities, as well as golf courses per capita, and a No. 4 rank for park quality.

    Those helped the city overcome a 58th rank in weather.

    Cleveland was ranked at 18, Columbus was ranked 55. Lexington came in at 35th, while Louisville was 42nd. 

    Indianapolis was ranked 63rd.

    Media Anti-Semitism on the March

    July 26th, 2014

    Of course, Israel now knows Israel cannot tolerate a state next to it pledged to its extermination and the Palestinians are pledged to Israel’s destruction. No nation would accept that, but Israel is expected to. Sorry, those who wish for another Holocaust, but Israel will not march silently to its grave as the Abbas/Hamas axis puts in place its forces to bomb Israel from both sides.

    Everyone is screaming about the deaths of the Arab boys playing on a beach in Gaza by mistaken acts by an Israeli airplane. It was a tragedy, of course. But, no one ever mentions that Hamas is explicitly targeting only civilians.

    If you flip on the BBC, or open the New York Times, all you get is tales...
