She wanted her ex-husband to die with a happy thought; she told him Trump had been impeached - Washington Post

Monday, May 01, 2017

He had been bedridden the past several months, Teresa Elliott said. The two, who didn't have children, remained close friends after their divorce.Michael Elliott was a longtime Democrat and was very interested in politics; a “CNN junkie,” he was appalled by the current political climate. He found President Trump to be a “loathsome individual,” Teresa Elliott said. Asked what, specifically, her ex-husband had said about Trump, she replied, “Nothing that you could print.” [‘Prediction professor’ lays out eight reasons Trump could be impeached] She said she gave her ex-husband the false news because she wanted him to die with a happy thought.Whether Trump would be impeached has been a subject of public discourse since before the November presidential election.Allan J. Lichtman, an American University historian who predicted that Trump would become president, had already made the case for his impeachment. He told The Post's Peter W. Stevenson in September that if elected, the real estate mogul would be impeached by a Republican Congress that would rather have a President Pence.Now, just a few months removed from when Trump took office, Lichtman has written a book: “The Case for Impeachment.”Professor Allan J. Lichtman of American University was one of the few professional prognosticators to get President Trump's election win right. In his new book, he says Trump could be impeached. (Peter Stevenson/The Washington Post)“This one is not based on a system; it's just my gut. They don't want Trump as president, because they can't control him. He's unpredictable. They'd love to have Pence — an absolutely down-the-line, conservative, controllable Republican,” Lichtman told The Post. “And I'm quite certain Trump will give someone grounds for impeachment, either by doing something that endangers national security or because it helps his pocketbook.”A February national poll by Public Policy Polling found that Americans are evenly divided about impeaching Trump. Two weeks earlier, 35 percent favored impeachment. That number went up to 46 percent by Feb. 10.READ MORE:Professor who predicted 30 years of presidential elections correctly called a Trump win in SeptemberThe campaign to impeach President Trump has begunImpeach Trump?

Cause of death a mystery as remains of Tampa airman are returned from Turkey - Tampabay.com (blog)

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

Family could not stay with troops at Incirlik, then, after the aborted coup, the base was surrounded by angry Turks. Power was cut. There was no water, or air conditioning for 10 days. The base remained tense even afterward, more so with the U.S. missile strike April 7 on an air base in Syria and with the ongoing campaign against Islamic State.Still, to his fellow airmen, Gardner remained a ray of sunshine, his sister said."He tried to turn every situation, especially the frustrating ones, into a song. There has been an outpouring of love and his friends tell me that even in the worst possible situations, CJ was always there to make you smile."Contact Howard Altman at haltman@tampabay.com or (813) 225-3112.

Former Utah Senate, farming boss 'Cap' Ferry dies; colleagues recall him as a 'quiet' leader, loud dresser - Salt Lake Tribune

Saturday, April 08, 2017

Ferry, a farmer and rancher from the northern Utah hamlet of Corrine, to be his agriculture commissioner. Bangerter had served as House speaker when Ferry was Senate president. Ferry remained in the agriculture post until Bangerter left office in 1993.Bangerter died two years ago, but his lieutenant governor, Val Oveson, recalls Ferry as an accomplished administrator who led the way on farmland-preservation programs and irrigation initiatives."He was a great leader," Oveson said.Haven Barlow, who logged 38 years in the Senate, said rarely did a measure Ferry supported fail. "He was very effective at getting his bills passed," Barlow said.Former House Speaker Nolan Karras said Ferry's secret was his humility."That's what drew people to him," Karras said. "He wasn't a showoff. He got things done because he was so approachable."While the adjectives "humble," "quiet" and "low-key" fit Ferry's personality, he also was known for his unusual choice of clothing."He wore a red plaid tuxedo to the governor's galas," said longtime lobbyist and former Weber County Commissioner Spencer Stokes. "That got attention."He also used his wardrobe to send signals about key legislative events, Stokes added. "He had this loud, wide tie that had dollar signs all over it. He would wear that tie on the day the budget figures were to be released."Ferry was born Sept. 22, 1932, and grew up on a farm in northern Utah. He graduated from Utah State University and, with his wife, Sue, ran a large agriculture business, raising cattle and growing alfalfa. He won the Outstanding Young Farmer award in 1958 and was the Future Farmers of America's "Honorary State Farmer" in 1975.After he left state government, he and Sue built a lobbying business with as many as 20 clients during legislative sessions.The Ferrys developed an international market for their beef and enjoyed a warm relationship with the Taiwanese government, which reached out to individual states after the federal government no longer recognized Taiwan as the official Chinese government.

Kenneth Donnelly

Saturday, April 08, 2017

Ryan, watching and playing sports with Keith, traveling across the country with his wife Judy, and spending time with his grandchildren in his favorite spots in New Hampshire and Maine. He was an avid reader of history and historical fiction, and had a passion for politics. Everything he did, he did with all his energy and heart and there was no challenge too great to overcome. Ken was known to all who knew him first and foremost for his devotion to his family and as a fighter for those without a voice. Throughout his career, he fought to save others, protect the most vulnerable in our society, and give voice to working men and women across the Commonwealth. He was a staunch believer in the role of unions and government to protect workers, and he was well known for his efforts to advance justice and equality for all people no matter their race, religion, national origin, or sexual identification. As such, he treated all with whom he met with dignity and respect, and over the many years he worked as both a union negotiator and state legislator, he earned back in return the respect and admiration of both his allies and his adversaries. Senator Donnelly championed many causes during his career, from increasing access and quality to mental health services for all; to funding for workforce training for the unemployed and underemployed; to more protections for homeless families and retirees on fixed incomes; to women’s’ access to healthcare; and to the creation of a criminal justice system that was fair for all. Through all these diverse efforts, Senator Donnelly never sought the accumulation of personal credit; but rather he was dedicated to the causes he believed in and the people he represented, and he brought his tremendous energy, courage, and passion to changing many lives for the better. Visiting hours will be held at Arlington Town Hall Auditorium, 730 Massachusetts Avenue, April 7, 2017 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. A funeral mass will be held at St Eulalia Parish, 50 Ridge Street, Winchester, on Saturday morning, April 8, 2017, at 11 a.m. Relatives and friends are invited.

'He belongs to Alaska': Adventurer, wilderness conservationist Ken Leghorn dies at 62 - Juneau Empire (subscription)

Monday, May 01, 2017

Juneau. Even just a couple weeks before his death, Leghorn was still making trips and helping set up fundraisers for the center.He remained as active as he could in his final months, whether it was assisting with a shipment of fish from Sitka to Washington, D.C., for a fundraising dinner there or going to a show at Folk Fest. When he had to stay in the house, he set up his bed in his living room to gaze out the large window there to watch birds.Leghorn had previously served on the board at Audubon Alaska, a conservation nonprofit based in Anchorage, and Audubon planned an event in May where Leghorn would blog about the birds he was watching from home.Now that Leghorn is gone, Audubon is inviting others to record the birds they see, in honor of Leghorn.The fact that he was so active and involved in his final months wasn’t lost on Warner. The past few months weren’t easy, but she made sure to visit a few times and call her father often. She ensured him that the lessons he taught her, such as being sure to treat others with kindness and understanding, had stuck with her.Seeing Leghorn’s legacy continue through his vast collection of friends has also stuck with Warner.“You’ll always have those connections and you’ll always have those people who can be there with you or for you,” Warner said.Those people have come out in droves in recent weeks, many of them telling stories akin to Skaggs’ anecdote from that sailboat two decades ago. Those connections, more like family than friends, were happy to be part of his adventures,
