first_imgPENDLETON, Ore. (AP) — A dozen or so strangers braved the cold on a Thursday night in December to build snowmen in Billy Larsen’s front yard.That evening had been tough for 6-year-old Billy, who has autism. He learned that school was canceled the next morning because of weather and that meant his Christmas party at Sherwood Heights Elementary School wouldn’t happen either. Change is often difficult for children with autism and the first-grader took it hard, reported the East Oregonian (http://bit.ly/2h3kgx4).After her son and husband went to bed, Holli Larsen tried to think of ways to cheer up her son. He loves snowmen, she thought. He would smile if he looked out the window the next morning and saw a snowman. Building one herself, however, was problematic for several reasons — a sleeping husband who needed to get up early for his job and the chance of Billy awakening. Plus, she admitted, she was exhausted and didn’t feel like getting wet and cold.On a whim, Holli posted a message to the Real Pendleton Classifieds Facebook page that she would pay $20 to anyone who would come and “build my special need son a snowman right now. Want him to be surprised in morning. School was canceled tomorrow & Christmas parties, etc. This may help him.”Jared Wright and two buddies were sitting at McDonalds at the time. One of his friends saw the post and said, “Hey Jared, you can go make twenty bucks for gas.” Wright decided to head over, but on the way across town decided not to take the money because, well, “Christmas is a time for giving.”last_img read more

first_imgWASHINGTON (AP) — The United States hiked tariffs on Chinese imports Friday and Beijing said it would be forced to counterattack in a dispute between the world’s two biggest economies that President Donald Trump says he is prepared to escalate.Washington increased tariffs at 12:01 a.m. Eastern time on $34 billion worth of Chinese imports, a first step in what could become an accelerating series of tariffs.China’s Commerce Ministry said it would be “forced to make a necessary counterattack.” It gave no immediate details but Beijing earlier released a target list of American goods for retaliation including soybeans, electric cars and whiskey.Trump discussed the trade war Thursday with journalists who flew with him to Montana for a campaign rally. The president said U.S. tariffs on an additional $16 billion in Chinese goods are set to take effect in two weeks.After that, the hostilities could intensify: Trump said the U.S. is ready to target an additional $200 billion in Chinese imports — and then $300 billion more — if Beijing does not yield to U.S. demands and continues to retaliate.last_img read more

first_imgNEW YORK — An escalating trade war between the U.S. and China pushed stocks lower for a fifth straight day Friday on Wall Street and put the market on track for its worst week of the year.The U.S. pulled the trigger on higher tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods even as both sides continued to negotiate. President Donald Trump said in a tweet Friday morning that “there is absolutely no need to rush” on making a deal.Technology and industrial stocks had some of the biggest declines as investors fled to lower-risk holdings liked utilities and real estate stocks. Several companies with substantial revenue in China fell. Apple and Micron fell 3%. Boeing shed 1.2% and Caterpillar fell 2%.The higher tariffs from the U.S. and China’s response that it would take “necessary countermeasures” rattled investors who had been hoping for a quick resolution to the dispute. Confidence in that outcome had eased investors’ concerns this year, along with a more patient Federal Reserve and solid economic data. It all added up to help push stocks to their hottest start to a year in decades.The sharp decline this week also ramped up the volume on what has been a mostly muted year with no major market-moving news. Investors have been cautiously watching corporate earnings, but have been mostly surprised by solid results.last_img read more

first_imgForoyaa published a story under the caption “Police Accused of Maltreatment, Detention”The Police PRO called the Managing Editor to express that he was not pleased with the caption as it gives the impression that the police is engaged in harassment. The Managing Editor told him that the story will not be put online pending a review of the caption and content. The Managing Editor did exactly as promised in compliance with the paper’s adherence to the principle of publishing the truth in good faith in the public interest.However, once the PRO decided to jump the gun by putting his view online before it was posted online by Foroyaa, the Managing Editor had no option but to put the story online so as not to be appearing to be covering up. Those who cared to read the story should be able to see very clearly that the allegations made against the police were refuted by the PRO. Hence Foroyaa had no intention or interest in doctoring the story. Foroyaa however acknowledges that the caption could have better reflected the content of the story by adding that the PRO responded.Hence if the PRO is still interested in sending a rejoinder to Foroyaa for publication he is welcome to do so. Foroyaa has no interest in engaging in polemics with the PRO on a matter that its staff has no vested interest in publishing.last_img read more

You can’t achieve this if you are not at peace in the environment.“I’ve been here for six and a half years and I can say with certainty that we are a good group, with mature people and quality players, good relationships and an excellent atmosphere.“Of course, there are better and worse days, but the core strength of the group can’t be questioned.
