Seymour Lawyer Faces Felony Count, Disciplinary Case

first_imgSeymour Lawyer Faces Felony Count, Disciplinary CaseDave Stafford for www.theindianalawyer.comA Seymour lawyer who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease faces a felony charge and a disciplinary complaint seeking his emergency suspension from the practice of law.Stephen S. Pierson, 69, was charged in July with a single count of Level 6 felony aiding, inducing or causing welfare fraud. A Family and Social Services Administration investigation determined that Pierson had paid an office assistant in cash so that she could receive food stamps and Medicaid benefits for herself and/or her children. The worker, Teresa Cantu, also is charged with Level 6 felony welfare fraud and Level 6 felony perjury, according to Jackson County court records.The charges allege the amount of the fraudulent benefits is $6,526.47. An FSSA investigator said witnesses said Pierson was paying Cantu at least $500 a week in cash that she failed to report in applying for benefits.Last month, the Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission issued a petition for an emergency interim suspension of Pierson’s license, recommended based on a vote of three-quarters of the commission members, in part due to the criminal charges.Additionally, the commission had been investigating grievances about Pierson for more than a year before filing a complaint. The commission’s complaint says Jackson Superior Judge Bruce MacTavish in June 2015 informed the commission that Pierson’s condition had left him impaired “to the extent that he cannot adequately represent his clients.”Former employees in Pierson’s firm and those who shared space in the office allege that Pierson represented them in personal injury actions and failed to fully remit settlement proceeds. They also allege that Pierson distributed assets from an estate without authority from the court, and that Cantu, who is not a lawyer, decides which cases to take, sets fees, prepares pleadings without supervision, and receives or splits fees from personal injury cases.Pierson denies the allegations or the commission’s characterization of witnesses’ allegations in a reply filed by his attorney, Don Lundberg. He moved that the petition be dismissed or a hearing ordered in a petition that characterized at least one witness as “a disgruntled former employee.”He noted MacTavish’s letter from June 2015 wasn’t furnished to the Supreme Court until Aug. 10, and the accusations against Pierson are “based on at least two and probably three levels of hearsay – the Executive Secretary’s, unknown members of his staff, and various individuals who purportedly made statements to unidentified members of the Commission staff.”Lundberg wrote that Pierson “cannot reasonably be expected to answer vague, second-hand hearsay allegations.”The commission noted Pierson’s Alzheimer’s diagnosis and said he asserted that his “symptoms have improved due to experimental medication he has received. The respondent’s statement is misleading, however, since he is part of a blind study in which some participants received actual medicine and some receive placebos. The respondent has no actual knowledge which group he is in.”Pierson in his reply “denies the commission’s mischaracterizations of his representations about the improvements he has experienced and that have been documented in the study.” Another filing argues, “What is misleading is the Commission’s attempt to characterize as misleading (Pierson’s) factually true statement that his symptoms have improved during the drug study.”Chief Justice Loretta Rush Wednesday appointed Robert C. Reiling as a hearing officer in the matter.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Notre Dame pilgrims spend Easter at Vatican

first_imgROME – This Easter, more than 100 Notre Dame students studying in various locations throughout Europe went on pilgrimage to Rome for a weekend of sightseeing, prayer and reflection organized by Campus Ministry. John Paul Lichon, campus minister and retreats director, met the pilgrims in Saint Peter’s Square on Saturday afternoon to distribute tickets for the Easter Sunday Mass. Students from programs all over Europe – including in Greece, Spain, England, Ireland and Italy – reunited by the obelisk in the middle of the piazza, hugging, laughing and sharing stories from their travels. The pilgrimage is an annual event coordinated by Campus Ministry, which includes tours of Rome’s churches, admittance to the Easter Sunday Mass led by Pope Francis and the opportunity to reflect in the presence of Rome’s most precious relics, Lichon said. Easter is the most important feast of the year for the Church, Lichon said, but the pilgrimage will take on special significance this year. “We’ve been doing the pilgrimage for a long time, but it just turned out this year it was with the new pope, so that has been exciting,” Lichon said. “The main focus is truly to be on pilgrimage for Easter, to truly enter into Triduum.” Lichon said Campus Ministry offered two pilgrimage “tracks.” The full track includes three days of sightseeing and guided reflection, while the Easter Sunday track admits students only for the Mass in Saint Peter’s Square, Lichon said. “It’s been fantastic. There’re about 40 students doing the full track with us, and we did the whole Triduum service together. We did a bunch of churches together on Friday, we did Saint Peter’s [Saturday] morning and we’re going to do the Vatican Museum,” he said. “Then about 110 students are coming just for the Easter Sunday Mass.” Though the tours and photo opportunities excite the participants, Lichon said the goal of the pilgrimage was to engage in prayer. “Rome at this time is just crazy, and we wanted to create a space that was prayerful and reflective and truly enter into Triduum,” he said. “I think that’s what this week is really about.” Junior Caity Bobber, who is studying abroad in London, participated in all of the pilgrimage’s planned events. “We began [Friday] with morning prayer at the Coliseum, and we saw the Basilica of Saint John Lateran, where the skulls of Saints Peter and Paul are,” Bobber said. “It’s actually where the bishop of Rome is, so that’s the cathedral of Rome.” Each day of the pilgrimage is scheduled from 7 a.m. until late at night, while some days stretch past midnight, Bobber said. “Last night, the Stations of the Cross began at 9:15 p.m., but we met at 6:45 p.m. to wait for our spot,” Bobber said. “It was a jam-packed day.” Mary Coghlin, a junior studying abroad in London, said visiting the Holy Stairs held special religious significance for her. “I would say we were all surprised by that,” Coghlin said. “It’s 28 stairs taken from the office of Pontius Pilate, so when Jesus was walking to his condemnation, he was walking down those stairs.” Coghlin said Saint Helen, Constantine’s mother, moved the stairs and other elements of Christ’s crucifixion back to Rome. “It’s the original marble, and now they’re covered in another wood, and pilgrims go up each of these 28 steps on their knees while praying. It’s about a 25-minute ordeal,” she said. “It’s way more moving than you would expect. People did specific prayers, acts of contrition. Some people received indulgences.” The students also attended the Via Crucis, the Way of the Cross ceremony, held at the Coliseum on Friday night, Coghlin said. “It was candlelit and we were close to Papa Francesco and it was beautiful,” Coughlin said. “[In the ceremony] there was Italian and a lot of Latin, which was nice because you were able to say the Our Father in that. There were also a lot of Notre Dame people there, and it was a great day.” The group’s intense touring schedule didn’t leave the pilgrims much free time, but Lichon said the group purposefully walked a fine line between seeing Rome as tourists and visiting the churches as worshippers. “You visit the churches for a purpose, you don’t just walk in and take a picture,” he said. “You [try to] understand what this church brings to you in a special way. You ask, how is God trying to speak to you through this place?” Contact Meghan Thomassen at [email protected]last_img read more

Alternaria leaf blight

first_imgPopular vegetables like broccoli and kale are among the crops that could be in danger from Alternaria leaf blight — a disease that can cause spots on some brassica crops and render them unmarketable — which has developed resistance to a once-dependable fungicide that Georgia farmers rely on, according to Bhabesh Dutta, University of Georgia Cooperative Extension plant pathologist.Dutta recommends producers stop using Quadris on brassica crops, which include cabbage, collards, kale, mustard greens and broccoli. The fungicide is the main one farmers currently use when treating for the disease. Although further research is required to confirm his hypothesis, Dutta believes a new species of Alternaria may be responsible for the outbreak of disease. The species normally associated with Alternaria leaf blight differs from the disease that has recently been observed in Georgia’s brassica fields.Tift County, Georgia, vegetable farmer Bill Brim is among the brassica farmers concerned about the development.“Alternaria has become resistant to Quadris, so it’s not as good as it once was,” said Brim, co-owner of Lewis Taylor Farms in Tifton, Georgia, which includes about 1,500 acres of brassica crops. “We’ve got a little bit left in our arsenal to use for Alternaria. We just need to get something back in there we can use.”Dutta is conducting a research trial evaluating different varieties of Alternaria leaf blight, along with different fungicide programs against this disease, at the Blackshank Farm on the UGA Tifton campus.Dutta, an assistant professor of plant pathology in UGA’s College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, emphasizes the need to develop an integrated pest management (IPM) program to fight Alternaria leaf blight, especially in broccoli and leafy brassicas.“We do have some other groups of fungicides that we’ll need to rotate, but considering how effective Quadris has been for our vegetable farmers, this resistance is a huge hit on our growers,” Dutta said.Alternaria leaf blight first became a problem in Georgia in 2016, but has gotten significantly worse over the past two years.“Alternaria is a foliar pathogen. Symptoms first appear on older leaves as small, dark spots that gradually enlarge with concentric rings. As the disease progresses, younger leaves can also become infected. In severe cases, infection can occur that results in rot on heads. Infection is exacerbated by humidity and extended periods of leaf wetness from overhead irrigation or frequent rainfall,” Dutta said.Farmers can employ alternative methods to help prevent the disease from becoming more widespread in their fields. Since the pathogen can survive in crop debris, Dutta recommends farmers bury their crop debris when their spring and fall crops are harvested.Because the disease propagates and spreads through overhead irrigation, growers should use drip irrigation or a form of subsurface irrigation to help reduce the splashing effect of the pathogen, Dutta said.Excessive rainfall Georgia in January and February led to outbreaks of the disease this year.“We have to try to manage this issue with good resistance-management techniques, such as rotating different modes of action in order to preserve the chemistries that we have,” said Jeremy Kichler, Colquitt County Extension coordinator. “Hopefully, if we implement good resistance-management strategies, then we can effectively manage this disease.”According to the UGA Center for Agribusiness and Economic Development, cabbage production in Colquitt County accounted for more than $42 million in farm gate value in 2017. Colquitt County, which produces approximately 6,500 acres of cabbage in the fall and spring, has experienced severe disease outbreaks.The production of brassica crops is a profitable industry for Georgia farmers. According to the UGA Center for Agribusiness and Economic Development, the state farm gate value for cabbage was $53.6 million in 2017.Georgia is not the only state experiencing problems with Alternaria leaf blight. As early as 2015, broccoli growers in Virginia’s Northern Neck region reported severe Alternaria head rot in fields where Quadris was the primary fungicide used. During 2015 and 2016, some growers experienced complete crop failures from this pathogen. Virginia Tech researchers led by Steve Rideout, director and vegetable plant pathologist at Virginia Tech’s Eastern Shore Agricultural Research and Extension Center in Painter, Virginia, have determined isolates of Alternaria that possess resistance to Quadris. To learn more about vegetable production in Georgia, see http://extension.uga.edu/topic-areas/lawn-garden-landscapes/fruits-vegetables.html.last_img read more

Woman who posted video of herself feeding black bear may face jail time

first_imgBody of missing Asheville hiker Chad Seger found Woman missing in Zion National Park for 12 days is found alive After Seger’s body was located, his family gathered near the search area to thank first responders. “We found him yesterday. It wasn’t what we wanted, but our minds are at ease,” Chad’s sister Chelsea told ABC 13 News. “I just wanted to thank Team 57. They found him. They pulled him out and they did their job.”  A California woman who went missing in Zion National Park while on vacation has been found alive after she was lost in the park for 12 days. Holly Courtier, 38, injured her head on a tree while exploring the park and became disoriented, her family said. She survived by staying close to water until rescuers could located and reach her. When rescuers did eventually track down Courtier, she was so dehydrated that she could take only one or two steps before collapsing. The body of missing hiker Chad Seger, of Asheville, was found Tuesday afternoon in the Shining Rock Wilderness Area of Pisgah National Forest, search and rescue officials said. The body was found in an off-trail area near the Art Loeb Trail. The cause of Seger’s death has not yet been determined. “The overwhelming desire to have a close encounter with a black bear is strangely more powerful than common sense,” Sevier County Wildlife Sgt. David Saxton told CNN. “Many people intentionally feed bears with little regard for the dire consequences to the bears and humans they leave behind.”center_img A woman who filmed herself intentionally feeding a black bear in Gatlinburg, Tennessee and posted the video to Tik Tok, may face up to six months in jail, the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency said. The 21-year-old woman from Virginia has been charged with illegally feeding a bear, a Class B Misdemeanor. Woman who posted video of herself feeding black bear may face jail time “She was very disoriented… and thankfully ended up near a water source—a riverbed,” Kailey Chambers, Courtier’s daughter, said in a statement. “She thought her best chance of survival was to stay next to a water source.”  Photo courtesy of Getty Images – by MattCudalast_img read more

Information Operations Brings Together Regional Experts

first_img The most senior IO representative in the United States also highlighted Colombia as a regional pioneer in mastering the use of the Internet and social media to have one unanimous voice, specifically against transnational organized crime. “The Internet is a vast space,” he said, “and we ought to take some of it back from our adversaries.” The opportunity allowed military representatives from Belize, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, Peru, El Salvador and the United States, all of whom are involved in building, strengthening and/or reinforcing IO capabilities in their countries’ forces, to openly discuss their specific situations, as well as their strengths and weaknesses to establish courses of action and collaboration opportunities to benefit each one individually as much as the entire region in the short, medium and long term. The Colombian delegation also took the opportunity to highlight the Colombian Army’s International Missions and Integral Action School, where IO doctrine is imparted along with those of Strategic Communications and Public Relations, among others, and offered that capability to their counterparts attending the SMEE. During three days of presentations, open and sincere discussions of each country’s situation, and sessions to pave the way ahead, representatives from 11 countries in the Americas came together at the U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) for a Subject Matter Expert Exchange (SMEE) on Information Operations (IO). Austin Branch, Senior Director of IO at the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy was also present at the conference. He urged participants to take advantage of the “real opportunity at hand for collaboration and work in unison that the event provided, but more specifically, to draw from the experiences that each particular country has to offer. “Don’t just sit back and talk about it,” he recommended. “Figure out what needs to be done, prioritize, and do them.” SOUTHCOM co-hosted the second IO SMEE from April 16-18, following the positive outcome of the first one held last year in Miami between Colombia, Guatemala, Ecuador, Panama and the United States. But this year, in addition to having twice as many countries in attendance, U.S. Northern Command (USNORTHCOM) joined SOUTHCOM as co-host, bringing with them the expertise of Canadian and Mexican participants that share the same threats and interest of making the entire American continent a safer region for all. More than anything, the conference offered a venue for each attending country to learn the way other partner nations tackle and respond to common threats that affect them all in very similar ways, including organized crime and its ramifications; illegal trafficking of drugs, weapons and others; gangs; and drug trafficking. It offered unique lessons learned and experiences from each participant nation that, according to Honduran Army Colonel Francisco I. Alvarez Urbina, from the operations and training department, made the event “the best conference” he had attended in his 27 years of service. For his part, Colombian Army Colonel Wilson F. Torres Pardo, Deputy Chief of Integral Action, as their IO initiative is called, discussed the whole of government approach Colombia has taken in this domain, resorting very actively to Twitter, Facebook, web pages and blogs to prevent rival attacks with the help of citizen participation, as well as to establish a positive relationship with the civil society through various public health, education and family campaigns throughout the country. “Because of our unique experience,” said Col. Torres Pardo, “we’ve learned that our operations must adapt to the changes that our adversaries undergo.” Meanwhile, his colleague, Lt. Col. Willy J. Oseguera Rodas, director of operations and training at the Honduran Army’s Joint Force Headquarters, agreed with his Belizean counterpart, Lt. Col. Louis E. Sutherland, Commanding Officer of the Belize Defence Force Support & Services Battalion, in that “these events are always good to share ideas and see what other countries are doing and how they carry out their operations.” By Dialogo April 23, 2013 In spite of the different terminologies that each country’s military and public security force gives its information operations, and the internal organization of each, the objective is the same: to involve the civil society in their actions, gain its trust and willingness to participate jointly in countering illegal activities; and unify efforts nationally, as well as across the region to have one unanimous voice against the actors of these.last_img read more

West Indies batsmen face big day in reply to India’s 631-7

first_img Share Image via: maharashtraspider.comKOLKATA, India — West Indies batsmen have a big day ahead of them on Wednesday when they resume their first innings on the third day of the second Test match at Eden Gardens. The Windies are 34-2 as they go in search of India’s mammoth 631-7.Kirk Edwards and Darren Bravo, who both played well last month in Bangladesh, will resume the innings when play re-starts at 8.30 am (11 pm Tuesday Eastern Caribbean Time/10 pm Jamaica Time).Team manager Richie Richardson, the legend and former captain, said he believes Wednesday could be a breakthrough day for some of the young batsmen in the team and backed them to post a big total as well.“We have got to bat the way India batted. It’s a very good batting wicket. India batted really well. We have got to bat the same way. It’s not going to be easy, the Indian bowlers are going to push us but I believe we have the ammunition to go out and bat for the next two days,” Richardson said.In India’s innings VVS Laxman produced a special knock — an unbeaten 176 not out off 280 balls. He added 224 for the sixth wicket with skipper MS Dhoni who made 144 with five sixes. On the opening day Rahul Dravid crafted 119 — his 36th Test century.“Usually, when you think about such a big total you are going to go, ‘Wow, that’s going to be difficult.’ But you have to assess the situation and tell yourself we can do it yourself too. If two guys get stuck in there and score centuries, then you can bat yourselves into a very good position,” added Richardson, who made 5,949 runs with 16 centuries at 44.39 per innings in 86 Test matches.“If you are batting on a turning wicket and you just stay in there, the bowlers are going to get on top of you. You have to show intent. That is what we have been talking about. You can’t just wait for bad balls as there aren’t going to be too many bad balls from the Indians. You got to take it to them. This is not to say you play rash shots or big shots. It is just that you keep looking for ways to score while keeping your wicket intact.”Richardson, who took over the position of team manager in January, has said he has been enjoying the job and has been encouraged by the level of commitment of the members of the squad. Richardson, who was a key member of the West Indies “glory days” team in the 1980s, said the systems are in place to chart the course back up the International Cricket Council’s rankings.“You can’t be best all the time. When you are down, you have to find a way to get back. In Sammy we have an exceptional leader and he has worked very hard and is doing a fine job. We have been showing that we have been improving all the time. We have no discipline issues. The guys are committed to training and working hard,” he said.Caribbean News Now Sharing is caring! 25 Views   no discussions Sharecenter_img Tweet Share NewsSports West Indies batsmen face big day in reply to India’s 631-7 by: – November 16, 2011last_img read more

Duterte warns Treñas: ‘Don’t turn away OFWs’

first_imgLast week, Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) transported to Western Visayas 266 OFWs (mostly seafarers) stranded in Metro Manila. Five of them turned out to be positive for the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Treñas subsequently said ships transporting repatriated OFWs would be turned away if the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) won’t coordinate with the city government. “Sumunod kayo sa magandang paraan, o pipilitin kong sumunod kayo. I don’t want to embarrass people,” the Chief Executive said. “Mahirap ito, this is a constitutional issue.” Duterte said he may be forced to “operate” through the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG). Meals of the OFWs who were quarantined at a hotel here were delayed, and there was no regular checking of their health condition, such as their temperature. (Fever is one of the symptoms of COVID-19.) “Sa city of Iloilo, hindi ninyo tinanggap ‘yung mga (returning) overseas Filipino workers (OFWs). Sir, mayor, nakikiusap ako sa inyo…magkakaroon ho tayo ng problema if you resist,” said the President in a televised address to the nation late Monday night. “I’d like to address local executives. It is your duty to help and protect your constituents. I have no quarrel that you want the contagion stopped right then and there at your doorstep,” Duterte said.  “But you know, OFWs are citizens of this country. Whether we like it or not they have this constitutional right to travel abroad and to come home after working there.” “If the OFWs have money in their pockets, I’m sure that’s intended for the family. (If they are stranded for far too long) mauubos ‘yang pera na ‘yan and they would go home with empty pockets. We do not want that to happen,” he stressed. According to the Maritime Industry Authority (MARINA), one batch would have 232 OFWs (Aklan, 28; Antique, 29; Capiz, 25; and Iloilo, 150) while the other batch, 301 (Aklan, 53; Antique, 24; Capiz, 30; and Iloilo, 194)./PN “Ang lain sa inyo kay plano-plano kamo, pag-abot sang problema itudlo ninyo sa amon,” said Treñas. During Saturday’s meeting of Western Visayas inter-agency task force on COVID-19, Treñas said ships transporting repatriated OFWs would be turned away if OWWA had not coordinated with the city government. Instead of prohibiting overseas Filipinos from returning home and leaving them stranded, President Duterte said, local governments should provide special facilities for them to complete their mandatory 14-day quarantine. OWWA did not have enough personnel, admitted its then officer-in-charge, Connie Binarao. “The national government, makinig kayo local executives, will insist you accept the OFWs,” said Duterte. Two more batches of OFWs are set to return to Western Visayas. MANILA – President Rodrigo Duterte issued a warning to Iloilo City’s Mayor Jerry Treñas.last_img read more
