SOUTH RIVER, Vanuatu, Dec 19 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) Each time teenager Freddy Sei hears the rumble of thunder, sees rains pound the earth in his small coastal village or watches strong winds whip palm trees, he is gripped with fear.

The 15 year old lives in Vanuatu, a Pacific island nation that two years ago was ravaged by monster cyclone Pam with Freddy watching as huts were blown away and water rushed in to submerge his village of South River on Erromango island.

“I was scared because the winds just took the houses away, there was heavy rain and the river banks was overflowing,” said Freddy, speaking through a translator.

“I’m scared that if it ever floods at night, it will come into my house and the flood will take me away. That’s one of my greatest fears,” said the small framed boy, one of nearly 200 residents of the isolated seaside community of South River vulnerable to flooding, landslides and rising seas.

A barrage of natural disasters across the low lying Pacific islands is inflicting lasting mental trauma on children, with one healthcare expert describing it as a “ticking time bomb”.

Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) depression, anxiety, and suicide tend to increase after a natural disaster, according to a March report by American Psychological Association (APA).

People who survive multiple disasters, such as those living in disaster prone areas, are likely to experience severe trauma, depression and other mental health problems, the APA said.

“After climate events, children typically demonstrate more severe distress than adults . Similar to physical experiences, traumatic mental experiences can have lifelong effects” and even impair brain development, said the report.

As climate change exacerbates the frequency and severity of natural disasters, mental health problems are going to worsen for children, said counsellor Sisilia Siga from Empower Pacific, a mental health service provider in Fiji.

“It’s going to get worse, if (climate change) continues. Especially with children since it’s hard for them to handle all these things that’s happening,” she said in an interview in Fiji’s capital Suva.

Siga said she treated villagers in coastal areas during the aftermath of Cyclone Winston last year, the worst storm ever recorded in the southern hemisphere, which crashed into Fiji, killing at least 43 and leaving tens of thousands homeless.

She said she saw many children too traumatised to swim in the sea again, or having flashbacks when there were strong winds or when the ocean was at high tide.

Psychologist Loyda Santolaria, who was deployed in disasters like the 2010 Haiti earthquake, said children are often left to their own devices in the aftermath of a disaster, since many parents are too busy trying to secure food and shelter.

“The parents are unable to cope in a natural disaster, neither are they able to support their children’s vulnerability and needs,” Santolaria, who now works in Vanuatu.

She said many of these children will grow up not knowing how to deal with these traumatic emotions and will become more susceptible to stressful situations.

This may lead to violence, depression, drug use or even suicide, said Alex Pheu, a mental health nurse working in Vanuatu’s capital Port Vila.

“It’s like a ticking time bomb. You have people who are scarred for life,” said Pheu.

“(Children) learn to live with it until someone commits suicide, or someone hangs themselves on a tree, which I’ve heard has happened.”

With few mental health workers in the Pacific region, Pheu said training villagers in psychological “first aid”, such as spotting signs of depression or anxiety before it becomes a full blown issue, could help to boost resilience.

“Prevention and detection that’s the most important thing we should aim for,” he said. “But we always come too late and when we try to undo the knots it’s very, very hard to manage.”

As for children like Freddy, living in a small community accessible only by boat, surviving the next inevitable flood or cyclone preoccupies his young mind.

“Climate change is getting worse,” he said. “I’m scared of it because there could be another flood and I don’t want that to happen.”

doc martens brown ‘The Little Mermaid’ swims into Wolf Trap

3989 dr martens ‘The Little Mermaid’ swims into Wolf Trap

“The Little Mermaid” is one of Disney’s true treasures, and the popular film was turned into a stage musical for Broadway back in 2008. Now, a touring production of the show done by Pittsburgh CLO, is making its way to Wolf Trap June 29 July 2.

Based on the hit animated 1989 movie, “Disney’s The Little Mermaid,” which itself is based on Hans Christian Anderson’s classic tale, the story follows headstrong mermaid Ariel, no longer content to live on the ocean floor under the rule of her father, King Triton. Convinced she’ll find happiness only on land, she sets off to find a world where she belongs, battling a cruel sea witch and finding true love along the way.

For the Wolf Trap dates, Diana Huley stars as Ariel, Mevlin Abston plays Sebastian, Jennifer Allen is Ursula, Connor Russell plays Flounder, Steven Blanchard plays King Triton and Eric Kunze is Prince Eric.

Broadway veteran and former Arlington native Allen Fitzpatrick plays Grimsby, Prince Eric’s caretaker and confidant, who takes part in the songs, “Fathoms Below” and “The Contest.”

Fitzpatrick attended St. Agnes and Bishop O’Connell High School and then headed to the University of Virginia for college. After graduating, he came back to the area to work for a few theaters that were in existence in the ’70s, and then headed to New York to try and make a name for himself.

And that he did. Fitzpatrick graced the Great White Way in 10 different productions, including “Les Misrables,” “The Scarlet Pimpernel,” “42nd Street,” and “Damn Yankees.” He’s also appeared in five national tours and more than 200 regional plays.

“We journeymen actors take whatever comes our way, and when this show came up on my plate, it seemed attractive and was a full year of employment, plus it’s a very good show,” he said. “The production is something I have been proud of in every city we’ve played. We started in Seattle last November and I really enjoy the role I’m playing and the people I’m travelling with.”

Until now, Fitzpatrick hasn’t done too much theater aimed at kids, noting not too many little ones are checking out “Sweeney Todd.” But he doesn’t think “Disney’s Little Mermaid” should be considered just a kid’s show.

“It may be geared a little towards young people, but we have plenty of adults who come out without any child accompaniment and are really very happy with it,” he said. “These are people who may have seen the movie when they were children themselves and want to re experience it.”

Of course, there are always loads of little girls who dress up like Ariel who come out to the performances and he’s thrilled that they are getting a taste of theater.

Although Fitzpatrick never saw the original Broadway version of the musical, he feels that this touring engagement may have solved some of the problems that kept the show from becoming a juggernaut on Broadway the way “The Lion King” had done previously.

“How you create the world under sea is pretty important to how the show feels and works and that production used roller blading to move the undersea life around, which may not have been a really good choice,” he said. “Our director reinvented the show with his own vision, which involved fish life and the mermaids moving around on wires and the effect is beautiful. Visually, it’s pretty stunning.”

The staged version also has many songs not in the movie, and the story is fleshed out a bit more.

“It moves along nicely and I think the story is a little clearer than it was in the movie,” Fitzpatrick said. “We have a slightly more degree of complexity explaining the back story of Triton and Ursula, and I think those who remember the movie will love this particular version of it.”

dr martens monkey ‘Skinhead’ Groups of White Youths Appear on Rise

The Huntington Beach Skins, which was formed over the summer and now boasts up to 25 members, is part of a new trend in Orange County gangdom: gangs predominantly made up of white, middle class youths called Skinheads.

“It’s like a gang in a barrio, but this isn’t a barrio,” said Stewart Smith, 17, standing among a dozen of his fellow gang members gathered in front of a 7 Eleven store during their lunch break from nearby Edison High School. “We’re American children. We’re not wetbacks or black or nothing like that,” Cornball said, echoing racist sentiments common among Skinheads, but denying that they are a white supremacist gang.

Known for their shaved heads and their unofficial uniform of flight jackets, shirts buttoned to the neck and black English work boots called Dr. Martens, Skinheads first surfaced in England in the 1970s, the result of social unrest and English working class resentment of immigrant workers.

Influenced by neo Nazism, the Skinhead movement has become an international phenomenon, with some members espousing white supremacy and racial violence. Others are merely embracing the anti establishment Skinhead style but not the white power philosophy behind the racist symbols.

Orange County’s Skinhead gangs are so new and loosely organized that many city police departments do not even know the white gangs exist in their communities.

But Deputy Probation Officer Mike Fleager, the white gang specialist for the county Probation Department’s newly formed Gang Violence Suppression Unit, has identified eight to 10 Skinhead gangs in the county, including the North West Orange County Skins, Los Alamitos Skins, La Habra Skins and Huntington Beach Hard Core. Each gang, he said, claims anywhere from a dozen to 50 members.

“Based on what I see out there, I think what we’re seeing is the Skinhead developing more and more into what we consider a classic gang,” Fleager said. “It’s an absolute trend. I don’t even know if the kids recognize it as a trend, but from an observer’s standpoint, you can’t deny the tendency.”

Jerome Kirk, associate professor of sociology and anthropology at UC Irvine, said, “We may be exaggerating not only the size and scope (of the Skinhead movement), but we may be exaggerating the elaborateness of the ideology.

“I think it’s easy to see the phenomenon it’s certainly visible, and they say some pretty scary things but I don’t think (some young people) know what they’re saying. They’ve found some phrases to get some rises out of straight grown ups. Some of this has the same significance as the swastikas favored by bikers. It’s a symbol, but what’s behind it is much shallower than something like Nazism.”

Still, he added: “I think we should have appropriate fear and respect for the dangerousness of some of the things they have to say. Countywide arrest statistics are unavailable.

Fleager maintains, however, that it doesn’t take long for Skinheads’ racist tendencies to surface at least among those he deals with.

“They may not classify themselves as white supremacists,” he said, “but when you talk to them, their philosophy oozes with it. They’re into the neo Nazi, they’re doing swastikas. They don’t like Jews specifically. It is a life style: They live it, breathe it, and dress it if they’re hard core Skinheads.”In California over the last year, Skinheads’ racist rhetoric has increasingly erupted into violence:

In San Jose, Skinheads terrorized a black woman by making racist threats and denying her access to a park.

In the San Francisco Bay Area, Skinheads threw a teen age boy through a plate glass window after he tried to stop them from putting up an anti Semitic poster.

In Chatsworth, police arrested eight members of the Reich Skins, a Skinhead gang that operated in the western part of the San Fernando Valley. Police said the group was involved in racial terrorism known as hate crimes for up to six months before the October arrests.

dr martens 10 eyelet ‘I miss my father terribly’

size 3 doc martens ‘I miss my father terribly’

When I was eight, I was at school watching a cartoon film [as a treat] on my principal’s birthday. We were enjoying the film when suddenly one of my uncles came and took me away. I was very angry with him. I just didn’t want to leave. I told him that I would complain about him to my father.

When we reached home there was silence in [the house]. My father was lying down. I thought, at first, that he was sleeping. I never thought he was dead. I had never seen a dead person so I guessed he was asleep.

I was too young to realise or understand the loss. But as time passed, I realised he would not come back. Forty years after his death, I realise the importance of October 10, 1964. He passed away early in the morning, around 1 am. But the news came post sunrise after the door was broken down to find his dead body.

A lot of theories have been put forth on why he committed suicide. But I think it was an accident. He had scheduled appointments the next day with [actress] Mala Sinha for Baharen Phir Bhi Aayengi and Rajsaab [Raj Kapoor] to discuss making colour films. He made poetry’

Guru Dutt: The man who couldn’t digest failure

He was to meet them and chalk out some plans. So I don’t think there was any reason for him to commit suicide. My father had sleeping disorders and popped sleeping pills like any other person. That day he was drunk and had taken an overdose of pills, which culminated in his death. It was a lethal combination of excessive liquor and sleeping pills.

Some people say the breakdown of his affair with Waheeda Rehman led him to commit suicide. I don’t believe is so. Their affair was over long before. Yes, he was having problems with my mother [singer Geeta Dutt] but nor do I think that was the reason. We were supposed to meet him the next day after school. Let people say what they want, but my personal view is that it was an accident.

Others say a financial crisis after Kagaz Ke Phool flopped led him to commit suicide. But he had made good money before that. Chaudhvin Ka Chand was one of the biggest revenue grossers in its time. He had made the film for Rs 1,800,000 and had earned Rs 4,800,000 from just the Bombay territory.

He had only two failures in life his first film Baaz, which he made in partnership with Haridarshan Kaur [Geeta Bali’s sister], was a failure and the other was Kagaz Ke Phool. Kagaz Ke Phool was a masterpiece in the way it was executed. Every aspect of the film is out of this world. People did not understand the subject in its time. They understand the importance of it now. It was way ahead of its time.

My father never wanted any of us to join the film industry because he knew about its insecurities. He showed his insecurity after he made Kagaz Ke Phool. He had started getting recognition but he was pessimistic. He was introverted and could not talk about his feelings to others. He was a very sensitive person and spoke very little.

If you see his initial films Mr And Mrs 55 or Aar Paar you will notice he played very enthusiastic [exuberant] roles. By the time he did Pyaasa he had developed maturity. He changed completely with different films. He then carried that forward. Pyaasa was originally called Kashmakash. He wrote the script during the struggle of his early days. The idea was always with him. He wanted to first establish himself before going the artistic way.

I don’t have many memories of him as a child. He was very fond of hunting. I went with him once to Kashmir and then again to Khandwa [Madhya Pradesh] with Johnny Uncle [Johnny Walker]. I fell into the Dal Lake in Srinagar twice and he jumped in to rescue me. He was a very reserved father, not an overly hugging type.

On our visit to the jungles of Khandwa our jeep broke down. We had to walk 15 kilometers to reach civilisation. I had a good time with him then. The biggest irony is he never won any awards. He never canvassed for awards. He never cared about them. Awards had lot of a politics behind them. He never wanted to be in that kind of politics. It is sad and unfortunate that he never got the recognition he deserved. Neither the media nor the industry gave him recognition then. Many reviews of his

films were nasty too.

The new generation has a lot to learn from him his dedication to work, the manner in which he worked on a subject, the way he used the trolley and camera. Though he aspired to make films without music he is still known for the best song picturisations in Indian cinema.

He was a reluctant actor. He never wanted to act but somehow he could not find the right kind of actors for his films and therefore he had to act in them. Shammi Kapoor, for instance, was supposed to do Aar Paar; Dilip Kumar was to play the poet in Pyaasa. He was a shy in front of the camera though he was always comfortable behind the camera.

If you see his films you will realise that they have not become irrelevant. All the problems of society he tackled are still relevant today. That’s why his themes seem fresh though 40 years have passed. People can still identify with his films. They enjoy seeing them again and again.

I miss my father terribly. I wish I could have learnt a lot of things from him. More than the loss of a father I miss a good director under whom I could have learnt things. I think of him every day. I run his company and see his films every day. You always learn something when you see his films each time.

Sybrina Fulton, mother of Trayvon Martin, spoke to Portlanders about her experience losing a son to racial profiling Monday night. April 13, 2015 (KOIN 6 News) Sybrina Fulton, mother of Trayvon Martin, spoke to Portlanders about her experience losing a son to racial profiling Monday night. April 13, 2015 (KOIN 6 News)

Trayvon Martin’s mother to speak in.

KOIN 6 News Staff PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN 6) Sybrina Fulton, the mother of Trayvon Martin, spoke in Portland Monday night about the loss of her son and the message she hopes his legacy will instill inothers.

The free event was sponsored by the YWCA of Greater Portland at Marantha Church on Northeast 12th Avenue.

Fulton, whose teenage son was shot and killed by George Zimmerman in an incident that sparked a nationwide debate about race,talked about transforming the tragedy into social change.

“It’s not a speech, it’s not a lecture,” Fulton said. “It’s a message.”

The mother of two shared the experience oflosing a son to the largecrowd Monday night. After Trayvon was shot, Fulton said she didn’t feel like she was going to make it.

“I didn’t feel like I was going to have a normal life or a regular life after my son had been murdered,” she said. “I just want my life back.”

But after grieving, Fulton said she finally reached a breaking point. She said she realized it was her time to stand up for what she believed in.

“I told myself, you can do better than this, you can do better than just cry,” Fulton said. “I decided at that moment that I had to do more, I had to be the voice for my son.”

Fulton has sincecreated the Trayvon Martin Foundation, which aims to “create awareness of how violent crime impacts the families of the victims and to provide support and advocacy for those families in response to the murder of Trayvon Martin,”the nonprofit’s website states.

She said her son’s death was a reminder of the ugliness that still lives on in American society.

“I, too, wanted to believe that we had come much further than we did,” she said. “You cannot tell me that it was my son’s hoodie. so if I take the hoodie out of the equation, what do we have left? We have the color of his skin.”

Fulton reminded the audience that issues regardingrace relations in America are nothing new. She said because it’s an ugly, uncomfortable subject, it’s often swept under the rug. But that’s something she hopes to change.

Trayvon’s mother urged Portlanders to get involved in local politics and reach out to nonprofit organizations when they feel passionately about an issue.

“There’s something you can do,” Fulton said. “When you are upset about a story, a case, a tragedy that’s going on, I will challenge you to connect with one of those organizations.”

She said registering to vote, and voting in small, local elections, can make a big impact when it comes to societal issues.

“Make sure that you’re lending your voice, make sure that you’re lending your talent,” she said. “Because if you really want to make a difference and you really want to make a change, that change will start here with you.”

Trayvon Martin was 17 when he was shot in 2012. Zimmerman claimed he shot Martin in self defense, although Martin was unarmed at the time, and was found not guilty after a high profile trial.

dr martens black 1461 An Iron Fist in a Velvet Glove

doc martens shop wollaston An Iron Fist in a Velvet Glove

Ranjan Kapur, chairman, WPP India and ex managing director, Ogilvy India, passed away this afternoon. It was a cardiac arrest. A memoir by Mohit Hira.

My first meeting with Ranjan Kapur was some time in the third quarter of 2014, at the GroupM office in Mumbai.

He was already the Chairman of WPP India and I was running JWT Digital and Hungama Digital Services. This was the first meeting among some WPP agency representatives to kickstart WPP Stream in the country and, as part of the team that set up the inaugural event in India, I got to see Ranjan up close. Not for very long but in the few hours that I spent with him, he reminded me of a phrase the late Subhas Ghosal, Founder Chairman of Contract Advertising (and my alma mater) had used while cautioning some of us in the Calcutta office about Ranjan in the late ’80s: “Ranjan wears an iron fist in a velvet glove. Don’t let that suave demeanour fool you; he’s a Punjabi to the core and will make sure that O wins this pitch.”

And that is perhaps the best way to remember a man who, along with Mike Khanna of HTA (now JWT) and Prem Mehta of Lintas (now Lowe) formed the trinity of Punjabis that ran the most powerful advertising agencies out of Bombay. They were a rare breed of gentlemen in that cutthroat world of advertising where pitches were furious, and parties were fun. It was one such pitch that Mr. Ghosal had warned us about and so, in the 16 odd years that I spent at Contract, Ranjan, and his agency, was always a rival. A man to be feared and hugely admired, but from afar.

Until that meeting at the GroupM office over two decades later. there I was,
dr martens black 1461 An Iron Fist in a Velvet Glove
sitting at the same table with a legend I’d never met. As the weeks passed and WPP Stream eventually took place at Jaipur in February 2014, I would see a man who was as charming as he was demanding. He was acutely conscious of what Sir Martin Sorrell would have wanted Stream to be like on the world map as also completely Indian and proud of bringing a local flavor to the event. He was both, meticulous and strategic and totally at ease with just about every single participant. If he was tense, he masked it. If his body was weary, his mind was as sharp as it must have been in those years of his youth when he switched from being a banker to an advertising professional. He was a warm, gracious host, a storyteller par excellence and a chef extraordinaire. And, off the field, a painter, a sculptor and a punster. Anything but fearful.

At that inaugural Stream, I finally mustered up the nerve to tell him how Mr. Ghosal had described him ages ago. He paused, set down the cup in his hand and smiled. An endearing smile that started from his eyes and went all the way into the soul: “Coming from him, that’s a compliment I’d say!”

And now, up there, the two gents are probably shaking hands and downing a drink.

Rest in peace, Ranjan. The world and WPP Stream is poorer without you.

(Mohit Hira, once an advertising man,

is now a digital strategist who consults independently. He misses advertising but isn’t sure if the reverse is true.)

light pink dr martens An Interview with Rory Lambert Behind the scenes of Trepassey Junior High

dr martens black 1460 An Interview with Rory Lambert Behind the scenes of Trepassey Junior High

He studied Theatre at Sir Wilfred Grenfell College. I don need to look up any of these things because Rory has been one of the most lovely and entertaining people in my life since I met him in my late teens. With the recent debut of Trepassey Junior High he shows he still lovely, entertaining and downright funny as well. Joining him in this endeavour are fellow Grenfell Theatre alums Colin Furlong and Adam Brake. Rounding out the main cast is Daniel Payne, red haired musician extraordinaire.

After seeing the first trailer I started with the emails and texts: the episode going to be ready? What taking so long? Why did you guys do this anyway? So I like to thank Corner Brooker for giving me a much more legitimate medium with which to grill my buddy and maybe gain answers others would also like to hear. Surpassing just over 2500 hits in 2 days Trepassey Junior High appears to have found an eager audience. Here what Rory had to share with me:

Rory:Degrassi was one of my favourite shows growing up. Right fromThe Kids of Degrassi Streetright up to the made for TV movieSchool Out!(they even use swears in that one!). I also loved the fact that (other thanKids) they kept a solid continuity that travels intoDegrassi, The Next Generation. Mostly it was just great to actors that looked real; like people I could have gone to school with. And they took on real issues in a way that was relatively less cheesy than other shows at the time. Mostly, there something about it that captures what it meant to be Canadian at that time. It nostalgia, yes, but it also something to be proud of. And to celebrate.

Helen: Can you tell me a bit about the Children Television Sweatshop and Playing With Rhyme?

Rory:The Children Television Sweatshop was formed when I was in the Theatre Programme at Grenfell College. Years later Adam Brake, Miguel Doyle and Steve Oates and I filmed a silent film entitledNinja A Listen. This became a tradition for us, filming a summer short. Most of them were pretty tongue in cheek and REALLY insular. You really had to know the circumstances and the people to get it. For this one we decided to try and film something that was distinctly Newfoundland but more universal. Something that (we hope) a larger audience can relate to. Or, at the very least, an audience that doesn know who we are and laughs just because Lambert is doing that thing where he sticks his teeth out. Um totally rambling. So we decided to make Trepassey Junior High under the Children Television Sweatshop banner. The Degrassi series were all dubbed Playing With Time Production so we created With Rhyme At this point the is composed of original members myself, Adam Brake and Miguel Doyle with Colin Furlong, Daniel Payne and Johnny Cann.

Helen: I know it took little time to film but a lot of time to edit. How come?

Rory:Schedules were tight this summer and our shooting time got whittled down from a week to two days, really. So we had to get really specific about what and how we wanted to shoot. It involved myself and Adam Brake doing a lot of stick figure storyboarding. Editing was another matter. All the other shorts we created were shot with cheap digital photography cameras or with a $300 camcorder neither of which had great built in mics. So our previous productions were either silent or carried very poor audio; Children Television Sweatshop now with Dolby Hiss! This time the group really wanted to experiment with an external microphone and so we used a Zoom recorder to record nearly all of our audio. It was definitely a step up, quality wise. The time drain came up when we tried to marry the audio to the video. We using consumer grade editing equipment and we really had to bend the rules to get it to do what we needed, so trying to keep the audio synced to the scene was a big challenge. I sure someone more experienced could knocked it out way quicker. But we like to keep things in house because a) we like to learn and b) we have no $.

Helen: When can we expect to see another episode?

Rory: Yikes, soon I hope! The first one has taken off way quicker and bigger than expected. We hit 1500 views in little under two days and we hoping it will continue to soar. Meanwhile we discussed a six episode arc that could come to fruition and Adam Brake has already started preliminary work on the script for Episode Two. Hopefully we can knock it out in the next month and schedule some shooting time! Maybe by Christmas? Now you know what to ask Santa for, I s Will other much loved characters make an appearance?

Rory:That would be great. I guess it will really depend on whether we branch off to create our own storylines or continue to parody existing Degrassi Junior High ones. I suspect the answer will live somewhere in the middle. Meanwhile, if you look closely at the background performers, you see a version of Spike!

Helen: For the pilot which scene presented the most problem during filming (for any reason)?

Rory:The toughest shot to get, in my opinion, would have to be the final scene outside of Lee house. That house we filmed at was on the main drag so we spent a lot of time standing there, waiting for traffic to go by so it wouldn interfere with the audio. Unfortunately, every car that passed was wondering what that crowd of skeets with the tripods and mics and cameras were up to.

Helen: Is there a blooper waiting to see the light of day?

Rory:There a LOT of footage and a few bloopers I would imagine. That might be a nice way to bridge the gap between Episode One and Episode Two. How did that make you feel?

Rory:Awesome! The more people that tweet it and share it the better! As of the time of this interview we rapidly approaching 2,000 views. That either means 2,000 people like it 1 person has watched it A LOT.

Helen: Can you give us even the smallest hint what we might see in an upcoming episode?

Rory:Hmm hard to say. We learn a little more about the by hopefully include Miguel a little more. The story of the fire in La Scie will definitely come to light and things might take a dark turn for our pack of skeets. We keep it light and fun and funny though. Or at least we keep writing things thatwefind funny. Hopefully everyone else will have a chuckle too.

Judging by the number of hits and the Facebook shares it seems a lot of other people find their writing funny too. As Rory said, when there is something new on the Trepassey Junior High front we be the first to know. Until then we enjoy the trailers and the pilot. Could Christmas come three times in one year? We will see!

dr marten heels An Effort to Better Manage Vacation Rentals in Newport Suffers Substantial Hiccup at City Council Meeting

Some time back the Newport City Council, reacting to growing neighborhood unrest with the growth of vacation rentals in various areas, decided to ask the city planning commission take the bull by the horns and begin to study and fix the problem find some workable and livable compromise.

But when the planning commission selected their new members on the remediation committee, some Nye Beach neighbors especially, accused the commission of appointing what could easily be described as appointing foxes to guard the hen house. Neighbors claimed that the planning commission selected a combination of vacation rental owners, real estate agents, along with lawyers which greatly outnumbered three residents who told the council Tuesday night that their interests were cast aside. Some of those neighbors pointed out that some of the newly appointed committee members don even live in Newport.

The city council was quite taken aback by this revelation and wondered aloud how this situation evolved, especially in light of their understanding that the guidelines they gave the planning commission was to select a VRD advisory committee that would reverse some of the problems posed by VRDs like noise, trash and parking problems, not to mention the loss of integrity and feel of a real neighborhood that they sorely miss.

Planning Director Derrick Tokos rushed in to defend the planning commission pointing out that the council had indicated they wanted balance in terms of VRD owners and residents as well as trying to mitigate typical neighbor VRD complaints. He said the planning commission thought they were fulfilling the desires of the city council.

It didn take the city council long to hone in on what they sensed was a misunderstanding between what the council wanted and who the planning commission selected to be on the VRD committee.

In the end, the council went in to damage control mode and, in fact, urged the planning commission to expand the number of members on the VRD Advisory Committee. Right now there 11.
