Hatch honors veterans, calls for support of Trump at Memorial Day service - KSL.com

Saturday, June 10, 2017

While Hatch spent the majority of his speech paying respects to those who have served or are currently serving in the military, he also made remarks regarding political divisiveness and a need for respect toward President Donald Trump."He's our president. And yes, I'm sure there are things that we probably don't like about him. But there's an awful lot of things you can like about him," he said. "One of them is that he was willing to run as an outsider, and someone who wasn't given much of a chance, and he was able to run for what he considered to be the principles of this country."I know him really well, and I can say, like others, with all his faults, if he has our support, he can do a great job," the senator said.Hatch also reminded attendees it's a "real privilege" to serve them in the U.S. Senate, even alongside members with whom he disagrees."When we disagree, we disagree," he said. "But we also many times come together in the best interest of the United States."Army Lt. Col. Forrest Cook, a military science professor at BYU, encouraged attendees at the service to remember the significance of Memorial Day — reminding them that the day is "an opportunity to recognize those who have fallen for our freedom."

Mom of baby who died at day care recounts finding him unresponsive - MLive.com

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

Korey's knocked out. I changed his diaper and he didn't even move,'" Reasonover said.When Reasonover picked her son up out of the playpen where he was located, she said she noticed teeth marks and bruises on his face."I picked Korey up and I'm thinking he's asleep and then his face tilts over," Reasonover said. "I'm saying 'What's wrong with my baby's face?' I'm thinking he's still asleep."She carried the baby, following a day care worker to the bedroom of the home's owner, Keysha Collins. That's when Reasonover said she and others started to panic."As I was walking I was saying 'My baby - he's not waking up! I don't think he's breathing,'" Collins said.She said she heard Korey gasp for air and Collins started performing chest compressions on the child while 911 was called."He never recovered," she said.The boy had teeth marks on his fingers and "deep bite marks" on his face, she said. Lewis said earlier that he didn't believe the child had any visible injuries.Reasonover said her 6-year-old daughter told her the suspect girl had placed Korey in a closet and that he was bleeding. Someone at the day care put him into a playpen, she said.State: No action taken against day care home where baby diedLewis said there are indications that the baby boy had been crying and that no one at the day care had come to him and so the 8-year-old addressed the situation. He said the children appeared to have been left alone for at least "a couple of hours."Reasonover said she believes people at the day care home tried to cover up the child's injuries, hoping Reasonover would take the child home so the care providers wouldn't be implicated.Reasonover's children, who also include a 2-year-old and a 7-year-old who were sleeping, had been going to Collins' day care facility for three weeks, she said. She found the home on the state's licensed day care web site, which indicates the day care facility is licensed for up to 12 children.Collins seemed attentive and normally was up and with the children when Reasonover arrived to pick them up after her third-shift job, Reasonover said.

Dallas theaters lose a directing titan with René Moreno's sudden passing - CultureMap Dallas

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

Dead at Plano’s Fun House Theatre and Film. Critics and audiences were spellbound at the clarity and comic snap the actors (ages 10 to 15) brought to the difficult piece under Moreno’s direction. Hallmarks of Moreno’s directing style were his attention to detail in all aspects of a production, and his ability to challenge actors to be better, no matter how good they thought they were already. Veteran Dallas actor Pam Dougherty starred in Moreno’s productions of Tracy Letts’ massive family drama August: Osage County at WaterTower and at Oklahoma City Rep in 2010. She called the director “a sculptor” who shaped every moment in a play, but in a way that left room for actors to be creative on their own. Playing a hard-drinking older woman in Contemporary Theatre’s 2012 production of The Night of the Iguana, Dallas actor Cindee Mayfield recalled in an interview that Moreno “challenged me to expand into unknown parts of myself and then supported and encouraged me. It was truly an unforgettable experience. He never lost faith in me." Critics often overused the adjectives “superb” and “brilliant” in their praise of Moreno’s directorial efforts, but only because there were no better superlatives. He won every local award for his work many times over. The DFW Critics Forum, which gathers annually to vote on honors for local productions, began giving Moreno an overall award for his entire season of directing assignments in multiple theaters. It was too hard to choose just one. Moreno had been scheduled to return to WaterTower this spring to direct Karen Zacárias’ Native Gardens, but it was announced a few weeks ago that David Lozano, of Dallas’ Cara Mía Theatre Co., would take over, making his directorial debut at the Addison theater. "We at WaterTower Theatre are deeply saddened by the passing of René,” says the company’s new artistic director, Joanie Schultz, in a statement. “He was an important artist in our WaterTower family, and directed work that had an impact on our artists and audiences alike. His presence is something that has marked us all and will remain with us always.” As news of Moreno’s passing was shared on social media, actors offered their memories of working with him. Indie film star Matthew Tompkins recalled being lured back to the stage by Moreno for Stage West’s The Seafarer in 2009. “What a fantastic, singular, powerful experience,” Tompkins wrote on Facebook. “[René] made all of us … better actors, better people, better HUMAN BEINGS.” “He taught me how to be a professional,” posted Kitchen Dog company member Michael Federico. “Making him laugh (and you had to earn it) felt like unlocking a superpower,” wrote actor and drama teacher Clay Wheeler, who was in Moreno’s 2011 Shakespeare Dallas production of As You Like It. Moreno is survived by his longtime partner Charles McMullen. The funeral will be 11 am on April 1 at Restland Funeral Home and Cemetery in Dallas, with visitation beginning at 10 am. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to your charity of choice. A public celebration of Moreno's life and work will be held at Dallas City Performance Hall on April 29 at 1 pm. “I love actors,” René Moreno once said in an interview for a series of profiles of Dallas’ most creative people. “I want them to be as honest as possible, as long as it's coming from a real place. I have such great faith in them. And if they have doubts, it's part of my job to make sure they learn to believe in themselves."...
