The109: Community hosts fundraiser to support injured Fort Worth officer Claire Girman printWhen a law enforcement officer can no longer report for duty, leave it to the community to bring support to the front line.Sherri Aaron, wife of Mansfield Police Chief Tracy Aaron, is the mastermind behind a fundraising event honoring the family of injured Fort Worth Police Officer Matt Pearce.Aaron and her team have organized a fundraiser for Monday, March 28 with city police associations and various Chick-Fil-A’s across the area to raise money for the family of Officer Pearce.“Chick-Fil-A is very good about being able to do fundraisers like this,” Aaron said. “They really do support the men and women in blue in law enforcement.”She said she and her staff would like to raise $50,000 for the family of Officer Pearce.The restaurant locations are donating 20-percent of their sales between 5 and 9 p.m. Monday to the family of Officer Pearce. Aaron said some locations are donating 20-percent of their sales from the entire day. T-shirts honoring the wounded officer will also be sold at the various restaurant locations, and donations for the family will be accepted.Aaron said the fundraiser will help support the officer’s family financially, as Officer Pearce continues his recovery.One reason this fundraiser is so important Aaron said is because it focuses on helping the family of an officer who has been injured, which is different than if an officer is killed in the line of duty. She said that while there are many foundations that support a family for an officer who is killed, that’s not always the case for one who is injured. Officers who are injured can receive worker’s compensation, but Aaron said that’s considered “nothing.”“A lot of officers have to work part-time, so if an officer loses all of his part-time, it puts a financial burden on the entire family,” Aaron said. “This [support] will help relieve some of the financial burden while Officer Pearce can hopefully make a full recovery.”Aaron said many have expressed wanting to get behind the fundraiser and the family of Officer Pearce.“When we first started preparing for the fundraiser, Burleson reached out to us expressing how much they wanted to be involved,”Aaron said. “Then, Benbrook contacted us, along with Fort Worth. It’s just been an outpouring of everyone wanting to help.”[View the story “Officer Pearce Fundraiser” on Storify]Aaron said law enforcement officers will be at each Chick-Fil-A location directing traffic.“The Police Officer Associations within these cities, they’re joining together,” Aaron said. “They want to stand shoulder-to-shoulder to show their support for the Fort Worth Police Department and for Officer Pearce.”Aaron said social media has been an effective way people are showing their support for the officer and his family and that the Pearce family has been keeping up with.“We chose the hashtag ‘#TeamPearce’ because we wanted people to take a picture with the shirt and tag it,” Aaron said. “It means so much to them to see everyone’s support and to see this event blossom throughout the community.”[<a href=”//” target=”_blank”>View the story “#TeamPearce” on Storify</a>]Officer Pearce is still recovering at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth, Texas.

More recently we were also the first airport in Europe to establish an airport sensory room for our customers.“This year we celebrated the 80th anniversary of the landing of the first passenger aircraft, and as a central core of Shannon Group, the airport continues to be a driving force for economic growth in the West of Ireland. It does this through the delivery of global air connectivity to enhance the region attractiveness as a location for FDI and indigenous companies and boosts the tourism industry by providing overseas visitors with gateway access to the Wild Atlantic Way.“Shannon was the birth place of aircraft leasing and today we are continuing to support Shannon’s aviation cluster through our International Aviation Services Centre (IASC).

The Royal College of Nursing has launched a safety awareness campaign toprevent sharps injuries in the workplace. A pilot study by the college in the 14 sites in England, Wales and Scotlandhas shown that in the six months from July last year, there were 455 sharpsincidents, of which 40 per cent happened to nurses. Launching the “Be safe, be sharp” campaign, RCN senior employmentrelations adviser Sheelagh Brewer said, “A sharps injury is not just aboutneedles. A sharp can be anything from a syringe, scalpel or broken glass to afragment of bone or a patient’s tooth.” The college has produced a campaign pack filled with information on how toavoid injuries. This includes a “pocket action card” telling nursesexactly what to do and who to tell if they are injured. It was up to key staff such as OH nurses, safety representatives andinfection control nurses to look at their workplace environment and assess therisk of suffering sharps injuries, and look again at what are the safestsolutions, she added.

Noah Coleman was taken into custody during a traffic stop for his alleged role in the death of White.The traffic stop happened just after 4:00 this afternoon along I-69 near the Covert Avenue exit. Two other people have also been arrested for assisting a criminal.In February, Derrick Butts, Charissa Robinson, and Mykel Blair were arrested and charged with murder, conspiracy to commit armed robbery resulting in death, and attempted robbery resulting in death.Investigators believe Robinson lured White to South Bedford Avenue to buy marijuana from him. Police believe the drug deal was arranged with the purpose of robbing White.Authorities believe Blair was the person who shot White during the robbery. White drove off, but crashed shortly after into a home on Washington Avenue. But Police say he told them “in my phone, she set me up” before he died.Police recovered 68 grams of marijuana in White’s vehicle.An investigation revealed Robinson stole the gun used in the shooting, and it belonged to her grandparents.According to the police reports a Snapchat video also showed Robinson displaying the gun and laughing.Investigators say Coleman was stopped by Henderson Police in the days following the murder and had six handguns in his possession.

The guns will be tested to see if any are connected with White’s murder.Blair, Butts, and Robinson are being held in the Vanderburgh County Jail.There’s no word the exact charges Coleman will face once he’s booked into the Vanderburgh County Jail.Previous StoryDeadly Crash Victim Alludes To Setup Before Dying CommentsFacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharecenter_img last_img read more

first_imgFood retailers are shielding customers from the full impact of soaring commodity prices, according to figures produced by the British Retail Consor- tium (BRC).The Shop Price Index, developed by the Consortium and administered by marketing information company AC Nielsen, showed that fresh food prices increased by 6.4% in May compared with this time last year, a rise from 4.5% in April. But the BRC noted that, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS), increases in the price of petroleum products faced by retailers amounted to 25.4% and therefore “consumers have experienced a comparatively small increase in the price of fresh foods”.BRC director general Stephen Robertson said: “Intense pressure from rising costs has pushed up the shop price of food, but it is clear retailers are continuing to shield customers from the full impact.”Meanwhile annual inflation for ambient food was 5.4% in May, compared to 5% in April. The BRC report said ambient food faced the same inflationary pressures as fresh foods, with the additional impact of rises in bread and cereal prices, which it added were “mainly the effects of shortages in soft commodities such as rice and grains”.The problems have been exacerbated, according to the BRC, by price controls and export restrictions imposed by up to 30 commodity-producing countries.last_img read more
