0 Post a comment Wednesday, 8 August 2018 - Crime by Kristen Bounds - Reporter; Kingsbridge & Salcombe Gazette [email protected] A vandal has managed to kill at least four elm trees by drilling holes and pouring poison into their trunks. The trees are in a hedgerow alongside the boundary of the allotment on Bonfire Hill, Salcombe. Member of Salcombe Town Council and Salcombe’s tree warden, Cllr Mark Long, brought light to the issue, saying that the deliberate vandalism is “so blatantly obvious” and is left wondering what the vandal’s motive might have been.He discovered the holes, which are about chest height and in plain view, after a member of the allotment told him that the trees were dying. When he went to investigate, he saw that two of the trees had obviously been killed with the ivy running up them dead as well.

It was a big gamble, Mike Bezos, the stepfather of Amazon.com Inc. founder Jeff Bezos, recalled onstage during a 2015 event at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. “I want you to know how risky this is,” the son told his parents, “because I want to come home at dinner for Thanksgiving and I don’t want you to be mad at me.” He’s probably welcome to extra helpings of turkey — and all the gravy. One IPO and three stock splits later, his parents’ stake could be worth almost $30 billion today. That would make them wealthier than Microsoft Corp. co-founder Paul Allen, the 30th-richest person on the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

Members of the team run drills during Florida Atlantic University football practice at the Orange Bowl Field at Carter Park Saturday April 7, 2018 in Fort Lauderdale. (Meghan McCarthy / The Palm Beach Post) BOCA RATON — The start of fall training camp in college football has long been compared to Christmas in August. As the Lane Kiffin Train rides through South Florida, the gift of winning looks to become a permanent fixture at Florida Atlantic. Only two seasons removed from a 3-9 record under Charlie Partridge, the Owls have become one of the nation’s feel-good stories, led by Kiffin’s redemption as a head coach – and a six-year contract extension to go along with it – and American Heritage graduate Devin Singletary’s FBS-best 32 rushing touchdowns last year. The 2018 season features the highest expectations in program history, with the Owls coming off an 11-3 record and a Conference USA title. Billboards of Kiffin and Singletary promising … [Read more...] about Quarterbacks, transfers headline 5 storylines to watch in Lane Kiffin’s second training camp at FAU
