Theft Austin Creeps reports his black Samsung cell phone taken from where he hid it outside the Adams County Courthouse on 7-16. Maybe the courthouse needs to install a bank of lockers like they have at Scotties: Go in with something you're not supposed to have, like your cell, and you can put in a quarter, lock it up, and grab it on your way out.

However, being a "veteran" of the fight over gun rights (on the side of gun rights), I've seen plenty of videos like this one showing police "repressing" or "abusing" the guy with the camera, based on the video posted by the guy with the camera.

Lightning Safety Awareness Week Kicks Off June 22

1 month ago by Bryan Nichols

Campaign draws attention to hazards and preparedness measures

June 22 – 28, 2014 marks Lightning Safety Awareness Week – an awareness campaign to learn about the lightning hazards of summer and the preparedness actions you should take when storms threaten.

During the week, FEMA’s Region V office in Chicago will be distributing lightning safety tips as well as important information about protecting your property in a storm and staying safe while at a park or anywhere else outdoors when lightning is near. 

For even more readiness information throughout the week, follow us online at twitter.com/femaregion5 and facebook.com/fema. Individuals can always find valuable thunderstorm and lightning information at ready.gov/thunderstorms-lightning or download the free FEMA app, available for Android, Apple or Blackberry devices.

FEMA’s mission is to support our citizens and first responders to ensure that as a nation we work together to build, sustain, and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate all hazards.
