Two unidentified bodies and a car are found in an extremely remote part of Chaves County, New Mexico, now a Bovina family is mourning the loss of two loved ones.

The Chaves County Sheriff said he believes the bodies are likely connected to the car, which they traced back to Bovina.

Although the medical investigator and the Chaves County Sheriff Office have not confirmed the identity of these individuals,

The missing elderly couple was last seen alive in Bovina on January 19.

Nearly three weeks of unanswered questions for the Lara family.

“It been 18 days that we haven heard from our mom and dad, and not knowing where they were at,” said Ezequiel Lara.

Those questions came to an end Tuesday afternoon but it was not the news they wanted to hear.

“Chief of Police Joe Roscoe called me and gave us the news. It was one of the hardest moments in our life. Relief, anger,

sadness. Comfort came in. Relief probably was the biggest one,” said Lara.

The Chaves County Sheriff said the bodies were discovered by a local rancher near a two track ranch road. And says it appeared they had been dead in that location for a few days.

“We talking an extremely vast area, and the vehicle, from what I told,

was stuck in the stand. So once you get your vehicle, at one point you walk away and try to find some help, and it appears maybe that what happened at this point,” said Sheriff Britt Snyder.

dr martens shoes sale Big solar storm hitting Earth

dr martens logo Big solar storm hitting Earth

A colorful, spectacular showing of the aurora borealis greeted Sok, a CNN iReporter, and others at Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National park on Friday.

Greens and whites lit up the night sky, treating viewers to a once in a lifetime showing.

Thanks to a relatively strong solar storm, those living in northern parts of the United States had a chance to take in the vivid colors that normally can only be seen from extremely high latitudes.

Experts say the combined energy from two recent solar events has arrived, prompting the Space Weather Prediction Center to issue a strong geomagnetic storm watch for Saturday.

Wait. What a solar storm? Basically, the sun is a giant ball of gas: 92.1% hydrogen and 7.8% helium. Every now and then, it spits out a giant burst of gas that contains magnetic properties called a coronal mass ejection.

These ejections are sometimes associated with solar flares, the most explosive events in the solar system. The sun has released two ejections in the past few days,
dr martens shoes sale Big solar storm hitting Earth
and both are linked to solar flares. NASA says the second flare is an X1.6 class, putting it in the most intense category.

The energy from those two ejections is now hitting Earth. Space weather experts aren sure what this solar storm will do.

Earth atmosphere usually protects us humans, but you might want to keep a flashlight handy. Solar storms can knock out power, interfere with GPS and radio communications including those on commercial airliners and damage satellites.

on the ground really don have to worry, said Lika Guhathakurta, a program scientist with NASA Solar Dynamics Observatory. She said solar storms don affect humans on the ground, although astronauts could be at risk.

But don worry too much. NASA can take steps to protect the crew members on the International Space Station, and satellite operators can turn off sensitive sensors on satellites.

Should we be worried the solar storm will fry our smartphones or other gadgets? very unlikely, Dr. Petrus Martens, an expert on solar flares and a professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Georgia State University,
dr martens shoes sale Big solar storm hitting Earth
told CNN. course if we lose the (power) grid, that will eventually affect cell phones and the Internet as well. power grids and satellites, Martens says other possible impacts are:

Distortions in GPS readings of up to a few yards. That is not much, but it can be crucial for military applications; for example, targeting by drones.

Increased corrosion of long pipelines like the Alaska oil pipeline.

Homing pigeons going off course. (Martens is not joking about that one.)

Solar storms have caused havoc on Earth before. On March 13, 1989, a solar storm knocked out power for the entire province of Quebec for 12 hours. Power grids in the United States were affected but didn have blackouts. NASA says some satellites tumbled out of control for hours during what known as the Quebec Blackout. The space shuttle Discovery was in orbit at the time and had a mysterious sensor problem that went away after the storm, NASA says.

On the upside, solar storms also create beautiful aurora. Aurora watchers in the northern United States who are outside major metropolitan areas should be watching the skies the next few nights.

dr martens 1461 black patent Biofuels Plant To Locate in Sampson County

CLINTON Biochemtex will be locating its new cellulosic biofuels production operations in Sampson County. The company and its partners plan to create 65 new jobs and invest approximately $200 million over the next three years.

“Biochemtex’s decision is further proof that the biofuels industry is positioned for growth across our state,” said Governor Pat McCrory in a press release announcing the company’s plans. “We have the qualified talent, strong business climate, and attractive quality of life that companies need to succeed. We also have the agricultural capacity and flexibility to provide profitable energy crop options for North Carolina farmers and cost advantaged cellulosic feedstocks for Biochemtex and the advanced biofuels industry.”

Biochemtex is a global technology solution provider specialized in biofuels and renewable chemicals. Biochemtex will operate in North Carolina as Carolina Cellulosic Biofuels, which was established in early 2013 as a Special Purpose vehicle for delivering the first commercial scale cellulosic bio refinery utilizing purpose grown energy crops in North America. This new plant will produce 20 million gallons per year of cellulosic biofuel from locally grown energy crops,
brogue doc martens Biofuels Plant To Locate in Sampson County
agricultural residues, and woody biomass.

“Cellulosic Biofuels development is bringing new jobs to eastern North Carolina,” said Commerce Secretary Sharon Decker. “Governor McCrory and I are committed to partnering with companies like Biochemtex to create jobs right here in Sampson County and throughout rural North Carolina.”

Salaries will vary by job function, but the average annual wage for the new jobs will be approximately $47,000 plus benefits. The Sampson County average annual wage is $30,

“Biochemtex is excited to bring our PROESA technology platform and our partners to eastern North Carolina,” said Guido Ghisolfi, CEO and owner of Biochemtex. “We’ve already engaged with regional farms and farmers for the supply of energy crops and we see great opportunity for growth and additional projects where regional infrastructure matches need.”

The project was made possible in part by a performance based grant from the One North Carolina Fund of up to $300,000. The One NC Fund provides financial assistance, through local governments,
brogue doc martens Biofuels Plant To Locate in Sampson County
to attract business projects that will stimulate economic activity and create new jobs in the state. Companies receive no money up front and must meet job creation and investment performance standards to qualify for grant funds. These grants also require and are contingent upon local matches.

“Biochemtex and various state organizations have worked long and hard on this major development utilizing sustainable new technologies and cellulosic energy crops and I’m thrilled to have the new jobs, corresponding agricultural demand and capital investment for eastern North Carolina,” said Senator Brent Jackson.

“I applaud the hard work that was done at making this jobs announcement a reality,” said Representative Larry Bell. “Our job ready workforce will serve Biochemtex well, and together we will boost Eastern North Carolina’s economy.”

Guys with Cushion Need Work Boots with Cushion

I a large guy myself and several years back I worked in a shoe store. One of the things I learned from a great boss was that proper foot support was the most important thing in a boot. Cushion, not in the fluffy sense, but in the sense that it cushions the blow to your joints with each step. When you are overweight, it becomes extra important to have that support.

As you search, be sure you get something with great support for your arches and something which absorbs heel shock, a major source of back and leg pain for guys. You will be thankful you did as the years go by. At the minimum, if you simply cannot afford a high end work boot with steel toes, be sure to spring for a good insert.

The Best Name Brands

Okay, I will admit this is an area up for debate. Some guys are loyal to a specific brand and others are not. Listed below are some of the best manufacturers of quality steel toe boots with good support for the feet, which is what overweight guys truly need.

Timberland: Often for under $90, they are not too expensive to fit into the mold of cheap steel toe boots for men. That said,
patent dr martens boots Best Steel Toe Boots for Overweight Men
they are of high quality. This company especially has pricing all over the board. Some are much higher, but almost always under $200.

Caterpillar: A slightly lower priced option, but still known for a good inner sole support and rugged tread with good wear and tear appeal. They will last you for a long time and give you comfort.

Bates: A somewhat lesser known company, they have been around for quite a long time now. You will not pay too much for these, but they have always received pretty strong reviews, especially as it pertains to foot support, so they are very good for overweight men.

Dr. Martens: The allure of Doc Martens boots is the insole, which is designed to mold and conform to the bottom of your foot, giving you good support. When you first try them on, they feel flat inside. It takes time for them to form to your foot. More than almost any other brand, you need to allow breaking in time before wearing them for long periods. They are high quality.

Chippewa: As a well known maker of quality genuine leather steel toe boots,
patent dr martens boots Best Steel Toe Boots for Overweight Men
you can buy with confidence. They have been around for many years and will likely continue to be one of the best around.

LaCrosse: LaCrosse steel toe boots are well known as one of the very best in the industry. Many hard working guys are very familiar with the name brand and have tried them on in the past. With good comfort and decent prices, often well under $150, you can find a good pair of work boots on a budget.

Danner: This one is clearly one of the very best, bar none. You will pay quite a bit more, but you will get rugged quality and great comfort with good support. Pricing varies, but you can find them under $120 and sometimes a little bit less, however, their very best work boots will run you around $300.

Keen: You can find quality with these boots and they are not terribly expensive, with some coming in under $80. They are a good choice, especially if you are on a budget.

Rocky: This is one of my favorite brands of footwear. I have always been very happy with the quality of their work boots and even their shoes. I am a heavy guy myself, and have found they foot support to be fantastic.

Georgia Boot: Whether you a logger,
patent dr martens boots Best Steel Toe Boots for Overweight Men
you work in construction, or you just want a quality pair of men steel toe boots, these ones are a good choice. Pricing is moderate with several right around $100 or under.

Remove the Insole

On some, this might not be possible. But, if it is, take it out and look at it. Is there a nice little raise where the arch goes? If you were to lay it down flat on a counter and push on the heel, does it seem to have cushion, yet spring back quickly into its original shape? If all of those things seem to be true, you probably have a really good pair of boots in your hand. The insole is a big part of what makes a more expensive pair, more expensive. It also the first point of contact with your feet as you take steps, so if it is made very well,
patent dr martens boots Best Steel Toe Boots for Overweight Men
it will reduce foot fatigue and stress to your joints.

Always Buy a Second Pair

If you are very happy with what you have now and find you are getting great support, hurry up and buy a second pair. If you don you run the risk of not being able to get them down the road. Footwear companies discontinue styles and models all the time. Don wait until it too late or you might have to start from scratch. Buying the best steel toe boots for overweight men can be rather tricky.

Bell Mobility was approved a permit at the regular general meeting of the Stephenville town council on Thursday to construct a 32.9 metre high monopole cell tower and a seven metre by 6.352 metre equipment building at 36 Missouri Dr. in Stephenville.The permit, which is subject to the approval of NAV Canada and compliance with all town regulations, received unanimous consent by all seven members of the Stephenville town council at Thursday’s regular general meeting.Fred Pottle, a business owner in the town who has a building located near where the tower is going up, wrote a letter of complaint about the proposed tower and said in short order a vice president with the company in Halifax replied to him in a two page letter.He said that letter outlined the reasoning for putting the tower at that location; however, Pottle said he wasn’t satisfied with the answer he received. He said the letter was copied to the Stephenville town council.He had suggested that in his view such a tower would not be conducive to the town’s skyline as the proposed location lies within the centre of professional buildings.Pottle said while he appreciated the prompt response, at the end of the day the contents of the letter were sugar coated and of the alternative locations they had this was the cheapest place to put the tower.

dr martens shoe sale Bilinguals gather for weekly conversations

COFFEE AND CONVERSATION. Linguists meet at The Goat Coffeehouse on Water Street in Eau Claire on a Thursday evening to talk, collaborate, and practice English and Spanish languages.

When Genero Leal or Rebecca Denney tell Spanish speakers about Habla en la Cabra, the language exchange group they volunteer with, Habla en la Cabra, they are met with confusion, or a chuckle. That because the literal translation of the program name is in The Goat. Things become a little clearer when he explains that English and Spanish speakers gather at The Goat Coffee House to help each other practice a second language at the group weekly meetings (5 7pm Thursdays).

Denney, now a mother and professional interpreter, started Habla en la Cabra in 2013 as she was about to graduate from UW Eau Claire. She was worried that once she wasn in language classes any longer, she would fall out of practice with her Spanish speaking. So she brought together a group of friends for weekly practice sessions at The Goat, 336 Water St. Soon after,
knee high dr martens Bilinguals gather for weekly conversations
she reached out to campus professors and arranged for students who attended the group to receive extra credit with their classes.

After Denney and Leal met, they worked together to maintain the meet ups, making sure that one or the other was in attendance each week to guarantee a Spanish speaker would be present.

Since then, the program has been adopted by El Centro de Conexi de Chippewa Valley, a nonprofit group dedicated to recognizing and promoting multiculturalism in the area. The organization has a network of volunteers who help Latin American locals access resources such as interpreters, support systems, doctors, legal counsel, and more. The organization sends volunteers to Habla each week, giving Denney and Leal more flexibility in their schedule.

Habla en la Cabra is open to English and Spanish speakers of all skill levels and dialects; Spanish speakers with many different regional accents attend,
knee high dr martens Bilinguals gather for weekly conversations
giving ample opportunity for non native speakers to learn about the language nuance. The only rule is that attendees be respectful of others, and critique kindly, so that no one is discouraged during the learning process. Typically, five to eight people show up to each meeting.

When the group first started, Denney showed up with themes, handmade flash cards, and miniature lesson plans. However, she quickly realized that conversation is king. The group would often become distracted with social conversation. She believes it is the sense of casual community that appeals to language learners. love that it doesn feel like a class, she said.

see these people really excited about learning, and that gets me really motivated, Leal said. Some participants drive all the way from Stanley to practice.

While Habla has typically been a place for people who speak Spanish as a second language to learn,

more and more people who speak it as a first language have been coming to The Goat to learn or improve upon their English. Denney and Leal hope to encourage this growth, as it promotes El Centro cause as well as their own goal to exchange language.

dr martens kids shoes Best Comfortable Shoes

Sure, we’re slaves to fashion but not when it comes to our feet. Give us a pair of clogs or some close toed Birkenstocks and we’re delighted, style be damned!

Turns out, you can have both comfort and style. We were waltzing through life, happy in our brown clogs and our gray Birks, until we happened upon the selection at the Shoe Mill. The shop stocks a wide supply of the black, gray and brown basics, but we could take to the runways in leopard spotted Danskos, flowered Dr. Martens boots, bright blue Simple sandals a rainbow of arch support.

The Shoe Mill has the best selection of comfortable shoes we’ve seen anywhere. The sandal clad employees practice what they preach and offer knowledgeable assistance besides. We’d bet our bright red, closed back Danskos on it!

A few years ago, Charles Nolan quietly opened his shop in the basement of the venerable Luhrs Central Building across from Patriots Square downtown. He had a concept the hippest men’s shop in town, and that was about it. Advertising budget? Hardly. Neon signs? Not in this lifetime. Word of mouth? You betcha. These days, Charles who doesn’t even have a phone in his downtown haberdashery counts several Phoenix Suns as regular customers, and his clientele is growing by the month, eager to buy his primo Italian suits, his slick shirts, his excellent selection of ties. But Charles isn’t just a clotheshorse. A major league jazz fan, he collects CDs, then sells them to his customers for a mere 10 bucks apiece. Finding this gem of a store isn’t easy. But once you find Charles in Suite M, around the bend from Tony’s Barber Shop, you’re in for quite a sartorial treat.

The aromatic world that exists behind the plain looking fa of this local chain stimulates all five senses, and possibly even your sixth. In what’s best described as organized chaos, bins of exquisitely scented candles beckon you to dig and sniff and explore. The on premises craftspeople work endlessly to turn out high quality candles with new and unusual fragrances to suit every taste. Explore the nooks and crannies for an eclectic selection of candleholders and treasures brought back from the owner’s frequent buying trips. And check out the shop’s “container fill” program, which allows you to design your own creation for the price of the wax. Plan to shop early during the holidays, as lines have been known to form at the door of these popular gift buying destinations.

Although lots of ladies only shop for a new swimsuit once a year, foxy Phoenician women consider bikinis a year round wardrobe staple. This shop on North Scottsdale Road has the most fun, edgiest collection in town, ranging from modern day Gidget florals to the barest Brazilian string bikinis, from brands like Body Glove and Bebe. It’s hard to pick just one style when you have to choose among satiny blue leopard, neon flames or sparkly camouflage prints. The prices are reasonable enough to leave you with cash to buy a Hawaiian pattern wrap and some sequined flip flops, too. If you’re feeling exhibitionist, you can even find something suitable for prancing around like one of the babes next door at Babes Cabaret a lace and rhinestone g string with a pair of black patent platform stiletto mules, the classic frilly maid’s costume or the naughty plaid schoolgirl mini kilt, complete with matching plaid thong.

Who gets a rush out of visiting a fabric store? At SAS, the answer is anybody looking for the thrill of a good bargain, the delight of an unexpected find or simply to supercharge the creative juices. Stocked to the rafters with discounted merchandise, this labyrinthine shop is like a candy store for aspiring fashion designers. Dig through bolts of satins and silks, twills and tweeds of every hue. Let your mind wander as you consider 50 different types of lace. Then ogle the incredible assortment of trimmings. Boxes of vintage look buttons, rolls of shiny ribbons and mesh, barrels full of straight outta the ’70s embroidered patches, and various zippers and snaps are there to hook you. We dare you to walk out of the store without a single new idea for a project.

This combination isn’t likely to inspire a national chain anytime soon, yet it has the appeal of a toy filled dream. Tucked inside an inconspicuous lab like brick building, the wooden, glass fronted cabinets give this place an Old World flavor that leaps from Galileo to This Old House. In one corner, old planes, chisels, saws, augers and plenty more are carefully displayed; in another are the beautifully cast and finished wood and metal planes in which St. James specializes. Across the store are those magical telescopes, including binoculars, for viewing the far away up close. If you want to talk optics, eyepieces, or the best way to see the next eclipse or that wobbling orb Mars, ask for Warren Kutok,

Good thing for us that Simon Nisanov left his native Uzbekistan in the early ’90s and landed here in the Valley we’d hate to have to travel to the former Soviet bloc country just to get a shave and a haircut. And we’re pretty sure that we couldn’t get one we liked as well from anyone other than Simon or one of his colleagues at this unassuming little shop stashed in a small plaza just behind an old IHOP. Simon and fellow ear lowerers Arsen and Tatyana know their way around scissor and clipper cuts, beard trims, even straight razor shaves, and the shop comes fully equipped with all the bells and whistles loved by those of us who prefer a good old fashioned barber shop to any sort of salon. There’s a wall rack stuffed with magazines, kitschy, outdoorsy wall art, corny joke plaques, a TV droning out brawling talk shows, and, of course, pictures of square jawed models displaying coifs that you, too, can sport. So stop in for a trim. Simon and pals are true Legends of the Follicle.

Michelle Lombardi knows hair. She’ll quickly assess yours and, in short order, can turn what might be a mop into a functional, optimally attractive ‘do. Michelle offers cuts based on what looks best on you, not on her latest whim, and her always flattering cuts grow out nicely, too. and San Francisco every few months just for one of Michelle’s trim jobs (you know she’s good if you can’t find a better hairdresser in San Francisco). The added bonus? Unlike many of the people in her profession, Michelle is a charming, down to earth working mom who won’t trouble you with grating gossip or ask you to be her personal therapist while she’s snipping your split ends.

But even in this rarefied category, there are places that stand out. Take your stressed and tired bones to the Phoenician’s Centre for Well Being (we had to shave points off their final score for the affected spelling, but they still win) and stay all day. Not only are the treatments excellent we recommend a “therapeutic” massage at $110 for 50 minutes, despite the ominous brochure warning that it’s “not recommended for a first time treatment” but the locker rooms are spacious and invite lolling and loitering. To splurge, try the Sanctuary package a body treatment (such as a wrap), a massage, a facial and a manicure/pedicure, at 50 minutes each, plus lunch, for $485, all gratuities included. Do not leave before spending, oh, a good half hour in the “Swiss” shower. And take a nap in the Meditation Atrium. Sure, you could nap at home, but there’s something about that tinkling fountain, the tropical foliage, the terry cloth robe . . .

For such an unnecessary indulgence, a pedicure can be an awfully routine, ho hum affair, more like a visit to the dentist that must be patiently endured than a delightful way to play hooky. If one is to spend money on such things, one should leave feeling pampered and a bit guilty. Carrie O’Hare clearly understands this. Her pedicures are like spa treatments, and bear little resemblance to the services provided by the many strip mall nail factories around town. The lucky subject reclines nearly horizontally in a tilting chair, is given a heated neck pillow and bean bag to cover her eyes (or his Carrie does men’s pedicures, as well). The lights are lowered, and the rest is, well, nap time unless you’d like to converse, because Carrie is lovely to chat with. But no small talk is required; just relax and look forward to great looking, scrubbed, trimmed and paraffin dipped toes.

Hair knows no shame. It’s a wild and unruly creature that answers to no one and grows wherever it likes, without regard to appropriateness. Unwanted body hair has found a formidable (if gracious) foe in Jennifer Ann Tumolo. Jennifer waxes and tweezes anywhere you want, with a gentle hand and a firm technique, leaving behind a meticulously tended patch of smooth skin. With acute attention to detail, she adjusts both wax and waxing methods to accommodate changes in hair thickness and skin temperature. Thanks to her expert knowledge of skin care (facials are actually her specialty), even the most radical amount of hair removal has little effect on your freshly exposed epidermis. With reassuring words and a professional tableside manner,

He took some photos of the gull on the ground and in flight and sent them to a birder friend who specializes in gulls, who confirmed Edsall suspicions.
