Despite recent arrests, F4J Everyday Superheroes will continue to fight for equal parenting rights.. F4J Fathers 4 Justice Canada is prepared to continue their campaign to keep their issue front and centre in politicians minds. The need for equal parenting is seen in every aspect of our society, and the need is great and immediate.

Darcy Nogueira, 34, the man behind this Spidey's mask, was arrested by Toronto Police yesterday after he scaled a metre crane on a North York construction site. Bill M is a private member's bill that would amend the Divorce Act to emphasize the equality of parents. Police stopped work at the site due to safety concerns until the man came down.

Getting Away with Murder August 29, permalink The press has discovered that four children died in Arkansas foster care this year, but DHS refuses to provide details, shielding themselves behind a law protecting the confidentiality of children.
In any other situation a person concealing evidence of a death would be charged as an accessory after the fact, but not a bureaucrat. Even at that, Arkansas is ahead of Ontario, where we have nothing better than statistical estimates of the number of children dying in foster care.
Our list of foster deaths includes only one in Arkansas during the last year. Keyundra Smith, 22 months old, died in Eudora Arkansas on May 28, , attributed to the dubious shaken baby syndrome. Foster mom Eleisha Sykes has been accused.
But DHS has refused to release information about the nature of the deaths except to say that two of them are under investigation as maltreatment cases. Even after the State Police made an arrest in one of those cases on Aug. Which raises the questions: When is DHS justified in withholding information about foster-child deaths? What sort of information should it be able to conceal?
Is the public's need to know about the circumstances of the deaths outweighed by DHS's need to complete an investigation before putting details out in the open? The Times asked DHS for basic information about the deaths: What caused each child to die? What distinguishes a case that apparently involves child maltreatment from one that doesn't?
DHS said it can answer none of these questions. Past court rulings have drawn a line between information that can be considered part of an investigation and that which must be public record. Lawyers for DHS have denied that the case is precedent for its own child maltreatment investigations. Though the results of investigations may be revealed if they are determined to be true, the law makes it illegal to disclose unsubstantiated accusations of child abuse.
DHS lawyers argue that any information released about an allegation under investigation may violate that provision. Though it would be an uphill battle, said Rick Peltz, a professor at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock's Bowen School of Law who has written on the FOIA, the nondisclosure law might be challenged in court by arguing that information about child maltreatment cases analogous to that contained in a police report should be publicly available.
But Peltz doesn't think the law as currently written allows even basic information to come to light. Jennifer Ferguson, deputy director of the Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families, said that, while AACF doesn't deal with individual cases, it believes specific details about the deaths should be made available as quickly as possible.
She said she felt DHS' refusal to provide information suggests that the agency is covering something up. Policy Change in Texas August 29, permalink A lawsuit resulting from the seizure of children from Gary and Melissa Gates in has produced purported policy change in Texas. Now children will get a court hearing before child removal, except in emergencies. We are skeptical, because that has been the policy all along. Social workers nullified the policy by always checking the emergency box on the form.
Will this announcement really change things? The new standards, lauded by parental rights advocates and decried by prosecutors, arose out of a ruling late last month by a three-judge panel of the U. The court found that state and local officials who removed the children during a child abuse investigation may have acted improperly but were protected by government immunity. But the court set out new legal requirements for child abuse investigations in the three states covered by its jurisdiction — Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.
The memo, obtained by the Houston Chronicle and San Antonio Express-News, said the new policies must be followed to protect staff from being sued for monetary damages if children are removed in violation of the new policies. New standard In the majority of cases, the department removes based on immediate danger and then goes to court the next business day to ask a judge for an order to remove the child.
Under the new standard, the state must obtain parental consent or a court order prior to removal "unless life or limb is in immediate jeopardy or sexual abuse is about to occur," the memo states. Additionally, investigators now must weigh factors for each child living in a home before removing any of them based on allegations of abuse involving another child. The standard practice of removing all children in a household when abuse was suspected on any single child was the basis for removing more than children from a West Texas polygamist group in April.
The Texas Supreme Court in late May held that removing all the children was not justified based on allegations that a few underage girls were married to older men. Another key change discussed in the memo involves when CPS can take a child from school to a neutral location such as a Children's Advocacy Center for an interview.
The new policy requires parental consent, a court order or the belief that the child has been abused and probably will suffer further abuse upon his or her return home at the end of the day. Prosecutors and child advocates are worried that children will be left in dangerous situations, while parental rights groups are applauding the changes.
Williamson County District Attorney John Bradley said he believes the department's new policies are an overreaction to the ruling and will leave children unprotected. He said it will be more difficult to prosecute child abusers if child victims can't be questioned separately from their abusers.
Gary Gates, the Fort Bend County man whose lawsuit prompted the revisions, said the changes will protect families from having their constitutional rights violated. Thomas Sanders, the Sugar Land attorney who represents the Gates family, said the lawsuit was never about winning monetary damages from the state. Richard Wexler, executive director of the Virginia-based National Coalition for Child Protection Reform, said it's not that difficult to get a court order for removal.
He said the new policies will give investigators "a chance to stop and think whether there is something that can be done that is less traumatic to the child" than removing them from their home. The Gates family claimed state and local officials violated their rights when their children were removed from their home during a child abuse investigation. The investigation began in after a year-old son arrived at school with a plastic baggie containing empty fig bar wrappers pinned to his shirt.
According to the court opinion, Gates was punishing the boy who had an eating disorder that caused him to steal and gorge on food. After other siblings told of unusual discipline, all were removed in a "jail wagon" that evening. Gary and Melissa Gates said they never abused their children and a court ordered them returned home a few days later. The state dropped its investigation seven months later.
The federal appeals court said it is important to involve the state courts as neutral magistrates in decisions whether to remove children as early in the process as possible. He made it the subject of one of his columns, copied below. The result two weeks later was his arrest on a felony charge. It is dangerous to even write about child protection. While I learn about the matters and try to help others, I also learn about myself. The other day, I made a stupid and quite serious mistake that I want to share with you.
As a parent, I understand — as do most parents — how our children can say and do things that cause us to react in an emotional way. In our household, we call it "pushing buttons. We went out to breakfast the other morning at a restaurant.
As soon as he had finished eating, he demanded that we leave. I asked him to please be patient. I told him, not asked him, to wait. Same response from him.
This went on and on and on. I sent him to another table. I tried to ignore him. But my buttons were pushed. I stormed out of the restaurant and told him to walk the few blocks home. I got in the car and drove off. I was gone for several minutes, long enough to calm down./p>
Shirley was the charm. No doubt about that. Not normal at all. Multi-Millionaire, just doing it for fun? They win more than not. They say it takes money to make money. I grabbed a beer on the way upstairs then watched TV and downed it thinking good thoughts for about I doubt it will be long, though.
Thinking about it until I went to sleep. I sure am saying Wow a lot. How did she know I was having problems keeping from telling her I loved her?
I did know this, though. And definitely the last 8 or 9. I cleaned up and took off for home. I used my points at River City to set up a room there for Friday and Saturday nights. They do weekends, just more points. Oh, that brings back memories. So, I opened up the turbo mufflers a little getting on to 61 north and headed out.
Had them on the truck, too. I just loved the sound of open mufflers. Have since I was a kid. But, the city seems to be crawling that direction, so maybe they never will. I finally got home and got everything inside. Meat in the freezer and all that. George came around the corner and almost tripped me. Someday his need for attention and my need to stay on both feet are going to collide, and one of us is going to get hurt. I scratched his head and checked his food and water.
He just wanted to say hello. Then he took off for the family room and perched on his chair. At least I would have been. Maybe not so much now. I still love him, though. And I looked over and told him that. He yawned and licked his paw. I went to the office next to my bedroom and dug through some stuff, coming up with a couple of inch HP laptops. I also found the two tablets, one a Mini iPad and the other a plain old iPad Pro, but the small one.
Oh, in the bottom desk drawer. I set them aside in an old paper box to take back to Arnold on Friday. I threw in a couple company logo two gigabyte thumb drives, just for the hell of it. I doubt that walking into the University Admin offices with a bottle of straight mash whiskey is going to go over very well. Can you look up a couple applications for me and see if they are, nominal, so to speak. Yes, of course I know that. What do they show for birthdays. Her sisters middle name is probably Nancy.
Yep, real works of art. Not a good home life. Almost full rides, huh. Put me on hold and ask the Chancellor if they still want those new clippers in the main kitchen. How close are they now? Put a note in their files that if they come up here their bills are guaranteed by C3Tech.
STEM teaching certificates, but good teachers can teach anything. Yes, Jared, even stubborn old comptechs. Hey, not a word about this to the ladies, OK? Have Henry send Millie the bill for the clippers. You guys get ripped off soooo bad by that. No, you know better. Just the purchase of the clippers. What, three of them, right? Tell Henry - as soon as the weather clears. The week flew by. I researched a couple dinner clubs in South County that I could get the girls into and made reservations.
Three for Friday night at one, the fancy one, and two for Saturday night with a late seating and meal at the other. Shrimp cocktail salads for two. I wanted to feed them and do something besides a movie, so dancing sounds good. Hard to find a night club you can take teenagers into, but dinner clubs, you go in for dinner and stay in to dance.
Getting drunk, well maybe not so much, but definitely not both. Anyway, the one for Friday night is actually a country club, but we have reciprocal visiting by members. I really doubt they will, as nice as they dress. Are we going dancing then, I take it? I have reservations at a club on Friday for seven, dancing at nine, and more on Saturday for the two of us at nine-thirty, late meal of shrimp cocktail salad, and dancing after that.
You get off at nine on Saturday night, right? I guess I did sign up for this when I said yes, though. Yes, we can be dressed for that. What will you be wearing? I know just what to wear with it. I have three perfectly good guest rooms, though, two that share a bathroom between them.
I have too much to lose. The offer of the hotel is nice, too. Anyway, where are you staying when you come down? I have no idea what to say to that. You need to keep your hobbies and do things that are fun until we get close enough to make plans, OK. Oh Jeez, thank you for the thought, though.
You do realize that an emancipated year-old can get married here, right? That was the farthest thing from my mind. Even the guy I was with when I met you made me feel weird. I hardly ever wear jeans unless I wear them as armor. Unlimited calling and I love your voice. Look, when we talked over dinner on what, Sunday, was it?
I told you what I wanted. Have you gotten an acceptance letter from here yet? She has hers all lined up. I got an email late this afternoon that looks like another one came through, but it needs to be verified before I believe it and get all excited. Oh, you got my mind off it for a bit.
Not a lot to do here on the hill in the winter. No snow to blade, ground frozen, I just worked out a little in the gym room and organized the fridge.
Thought some more about Shirley. Screw it, I went to town. Jewelry store on the square. Maybe as a face. Browsing for anything with green in it, I found one I liked. Huge princess emerald with two good sized diamonds on either side and some baguettes under for trim. I asked the girl behind the counter how old she was, how tall she was, and how much she weighed. She laughed and I retracted the last question. Held my hand out to shake hers. Shot in the dark, I know. She wore a size 4. I asked her to make the one I was pointing to a size 4 and asked her how much it was.
She squealed a little. I think all ten or so people in the store looked over. They were on commission and she was there to help me. Shaking her hand told me she was about the same as Shirley. Anyhow, she just got another semester of school paid for.
Fourteen thousand, five hundred dollars later, I had a ring, to pop the question with, if I ever decided to, or thought maybe she wanted to. I did haggle with them until I got free lifetime cleanings with it. I knew from their ads they did it with all engagement rings anyway, so I was just playing.
Helps to establish a rapport with people you drop this kind of money on. It actually keeps them from taking advantage of you, or even trying, later on. One more wake up and I was on the way to River City and a date with an angel. Two, actually, but only one of them counted. I spent the evening in the kitchen making spaghetti with meatballs and sausage. Part for dinner and part to freeze for small meals for later.
Bachelors do that a lot. I was just trying to stay busy. Something to keep my mind off young Shirley. I put on some big band music from the satellite system just to make sure the joints and muscles would remember it.
Most of them were just local, country club, night club, restaurant and a movie, that kind of thing. I watched the news with a short sip of Aberlour. Called a certain redheaded angel. I really despised her being leery of me, let alone afraid of me. I apologized for making her cry. She chastised me for apologizing and we kissed off the phone call. Bed came soon after, and finally when I woke, I could pack and hit the road. The tux and the blue suit in the bag, put my gear together, and off we go.
I stopped for flowers for the girls and was advised, since I had mentioned blue and Shirley answered with blue, that this blue corsage would work, with any blue, either as a pin or wrist wrap.
Looked to me like it would go with orange, as well. They may have been teasing me. When I got to the room, I set the flowers in the sink with cool water running next to them. I shaved and showered, then headed for the apartment. I was a little more than a little apprehensive. I missed my Shirley.
What was she dressed in? I hoped I danced well enough for her. I know kids do this stuff in school these days. She answered the door in a robe. I kissed her and offered her the blue corsage. She looked up at me, pulled me into the apartment, and closed the door. Then she reached up and pulled me down by the ear and kissed me again, then whispered in that ear that she missed me.
And she thanked me for coming back to her. SHE was thanking ME. Something was wrong with this picture. I wrapped my arms around her, lifted her up against me and spun her around telling her it was me that should be thankful to have her in my life.
Jenny came in and I presented her the off-white corsage. It worked with her red outfit just fine. I had a blue date and a red date. They took my jacket and hung it up. Sat me on the couch and offered me a juice or a water.
Jenny sat next to me and admitted being a little scared about being alone with me out in the country. No help around for miles, all that. She looked at Shirley and got a nod from my sprite. She passed her fingers over it, and frowned.
She started to tear up, but I grabbed her close and kissed the top of her head. Where ever you want. She was born a boy but was living as a girl. I told her everything was fine. If they would let me help them, it would all be fine. We sat for about half an hour, before they started moving around a little.
Why share this with me now? Not much reaction now. I looked at her, then at Shirley. Medical school looking for and helping transgendered patients with minor plastic surgery options.
She was afraid to go back to get it looked at. Too visible, with work and school and all now. Out in the country with no one to help. No one to turn to. We had a party to get to. I got them to smile and herded them into the bedroom.
Finally dressed, and glamorously so, in red and blue gowns, slit to just below the hip, and silver satin heels, I got their corsages pinned on and we took off. They were ready to get in and out of the Challenger, but the chariot awaited, and they were seated in comfort. Jen was still in the back seat, but she did comment on how comfortable the Q7 was. We got to the club, and all eyes were on us when we entered the dining room. The girls were definitely distracting. They swished through the room like royalty, getting envious looks from the women and not so innocent stares from the men.
I was proud to be with them. Our meals were excellent. They really took care of their members at this club. Their menus for dinner only had a few offerings, but what they had was well put together.
Private clubs are like that, sometimes. After we had chocolate suicide cheesecake dessert, the tables were cleared, and drinks ordered. The girls ordered ginger ale, not wanting to cause a ruckus if somebody asked for IDs. Very adult of them in my opinion. I had a water, myself, not really wanting to let any alcohol fuzz my judgment. Both of my dates were good dancers, and alcohol was not a necessity to have fun that night.
We danced almost every song, well, I did, with one of the girls or the other. There were a few men that approached them for dances, and Jenny accepted a couple while Shirley and I were out on the floor. Shirley accepted none of them, but I could tell she was courteous in her soft rejections. Much more mature than her seventeen years would indicate.
But then the degree you get from the school of hard knocks is an all-encompassing experience. My outing with the ladies was a complete success.
They enjoyed the night out as adults doing adult things with adult friends, and we got to know each other a little better. There were enough resources from welfare and support groups to keep her afloat long enough to meet Shirley and get the apartment together.
The grandmother assisted Jen in her transition, accepting her as a girl. The parents just used her as one. Crazy alcohol and drug induced family life, neglected child that developed survival skills, and a court order advising her parents to back away from her life.
They met that judge friend through the process and have been doing OK, at least surviving, ever since. Surviving with top of the line grades and dreams of college completely within grasp. Shirley did tell me she checked on that last scholarship, and was now completely funded for her first two years at the university near my home. She and Jenny had made the final decision to attend.
That would have been so I took the ladies home where they invited me in for a drink and a chat before I had to leave them to their beauty sleeps. They both worked full shifts tomorrow, noon to nine, with an hour for lunch. Yes, I talked them into having lunch with me. I established that they had no preferences or food allergies, so that plan was coming together. Jenny bid us goodnight after a while, and I made to leave, but was pushed back down on the couch.
She came back in wearing a big fluffy chenille robe about 3 sizes too big for her. She looked so damned cute. She was still in her hose and heels, though, and let me see them when she climbed up in my lap. Yes, she was teasing me with her legs, but it was innocent enough to be an acceptable step in the courting ritual.
It needs to be said. The ring size is a four. Oh God, this is tough. I have been in two previous, serious, long term, relationships.
The first was love. Two-way, unadulterated, mad, passionate, young, uninhibited, caring, sharing love. This feels more right, somehow, than that one, if you can believe that.
That one ended badly. Horribly for all concerned. The second was evidently not love, but a need for companionship that felt like love at the time, at least to me. Maybe comfortable would be a good word. It ended badly as well. As hard as I tried to please her, and therefore myself, it came to nothing.
My life from there forward. Shirley Brigitte Sanders, I love you, too. Just let it run and take us into the next stage of life. Tears gathered and fell down her beautiful face, across light freckles, down past kissable lips, where I caught them with my thumbs, then kissed those lips. I continued my diatribe. You said you will only be with your husband. I will only be with my wife. She put her head on my shoulder and sniffled, sighed, and then sobbed.
I just sat there holding her, rocking, until she stopped. I felt her relax, then sigh, like the weight of the world was lifted off her shoulders. She stayed there for about a minute, then raised her head. I want you, but I want that, too. Can I have both? I want you to realize your dream.
But, I want to help you get there. I want you to let me stand beside you the whole time. To be a part of you while you do it. Make it easier on you so we can have a life while you chase that dream, that goal. Wednesday, I think, after you called. She had to retype a paper on mine. Hers restarted, but did a disk check or something and she lost what she was doing. Looks like the hard drive is failing. I have two three-year-old laptops downstairs in the back of the car, that will help you two reach your dream.
They are just sitting around the house gathering dust. Will you take them and use them to study for your dream? If yes, that is on my terms. I get to help. Looking out the window, wishing you could look up the formula for toothpaste for an assignment in AP Chemistry. They were sitting in my office gathering dust. I have a newer one. A little bigger, too. Anyway, you and Jenny could use them. One is small and easy to carry, an iPad Mini, but it needs a loving home.
If you take it and read on the bus, that is on my terms. Can you accept my terms? Are you wanting to help Jennifer, too? That she and Jen were close, so I was treating Jen as an extension of her. That placated her curiosity, so she succumbed to my evil plot. You need to know, with my background, that would scare me. I feel wonderful, now, in your arms. You are a very smart senior in high school with a job at a really cool store in the mall.
An older man is in love with you. Nothing in those statements will cause floods or famine in any part of the world. And, I love you. She has really nice legs. Doing that a lot tonight. I think that ship is sailing so you might want to share. I know that much. Kiss me, go back to the hotel, and text me when you wake up. This one is less formal, right? She pulled on my hand to help me stand. You have called me your Princess, after all.
That blue gown was a little And you are my princess, so dress accordingly by all means. I got back to the room, changed clothes and went back down to the casino. Got me a Select at the bar. The bartender told me it was a few minutes before last call, so I asked her for two. I went off to find a Jungle Wild II game, and doing so fed it my twenty and played a buck fifty for a while.
Little wins, nothing spectacular, but it kept me playing. I had a dollar sixty-five left in credit and pushed the spin button. Caught a bonus, and on the first roll, thirty dollars in frogs and wilds. Second roll, nothing but wilds and gold sun coins as far as the eye could see.
Third roll, wilds on the first four columns and mixed on the last. Some high end symbols. Fourth and fifth rolls garnered nothing and ninety cents, respectively. I cashed out with nine hundred and ninety dollars. Never has a guy been this lucky. Lucky in love, lucky in the slots, lucky in life. No date, just a promise to be there when the date rolls around.
I had half a beer left, stopped at a Mr Woo, dropped a twenty in it, and damn. I laughed, finished my beer and made for the ticket cash out machine. I remembered I had to put them in and cash them out separately so no tax alarms went off. Then pocketed well over a grand and made for the room. I had a plan. Could be second now. I woke to my alarm and texted her while I was still in bed.
She called instead of texting back. How are you today? You caught me with that one. I thought you said you googled me? It said you had an IT business or something. So you were gainfully employed. I told you I would, and I will. Shirley, I do love you and am serious about this. I want you in my life. Go eat breakfast, Mr. Richie Rich slot machine wizard. I hear the buffet there is good. Maybe you can treat me there someday. Maybe next Saturday before work.
You have a good day, and think about me once in a while. Oh, remind me tonight to take the computers in when I take you home tonight. I love you, too, Chuck. Thank you for being my prince. See you at lunch time. We get about an hour. At five in the food court. I just loved her voice.
I spent the morning goofing off and thinking about life in general. You know, possible honeymoon destinations, the normal thing. Who am I kidding?
God, what would I do if I scared her off tonight. I spent the morning doing market and investing research. Time flew by, thankfully. I ordered lunch, let them know it was to go for a lunch in a mall down the road at five, so they got on it and had it done with a smile. Just the way I want to see them. I rose and kissed them both, Shirley a little more and longer than Jen, but I fed them Chinese for lunch, and it was greatly appreciated.
Each of us had a little of each. My girls looked fantastic in their miniskirts, tights, and moderate heels. Young, but not too young looking. They told me they doubted it was on the way, but I insisted. Everything would be OK. I gave them each a kiss and a hug and watched as they walked back to work. Just before they went around the corner, Shirley turned and blew me a kiss. I smiled and blew one back.
Just like a young man would. She turned and ran to catch up with Jenny. I cleaned up our trash and pitched it, then headed back to the hotel. I called the club we were going to and let them know that 1, we might be a few minutes late, and 2, I would make it worth their while if that was OK. I stopped in the casino to burn an hour before dressing to pick up the girls. There was a big machine with rhinoceroses on it that looked pretty busy and fun.
Sliding in a twenty, I bet a dollar twenty and hit spin a few times. On the fourth one, I hit the bonus, then on the bonus hit a full screen of one animal or another twice, as well as some other big wins, and suddenly had another six-hundred-dollar ticket to cash in. I was wondering if my rewards card account showed how lucky I had been for the last week.
All because of my Shirley. I cashed in the ticket and went to the room. Looking to all the world like Mr. Blue suit, shirt, tie Well, black socks and shoes. I folded my jacket inside out in the back seat and headed off to get the girls. I was waiting for them at the door. Shirley was absolutely gorgeous. Her dress was full and showed her beautiful legs, and she was wearing four-inch heels with straps for dancing.
Shirley put her little bag in the middle between Jenny and my jacket. I know I appreciate it. Mine is going to quit. It ran another disk check program when I started it to check my mail this morning. Lost a few more sectors. I hope I can get my stuff off in time. I left it running, just in case. If you have trouble copying the files off, let me know. I have a guy who might be able to help. More on that later. You guys OK with that? Not going to turn down a free meal.
We got to the apartment took the computers upstairs. I gave Jenny the generic password all the accounts had been set to, and Shirley and I took off. I did, just a little, and quit when I hit some information that scares me. Is it going to cause you problems being with me? I could crawl in a shell and live to be a hundred and ninety-nine and not want for anything. I can do that. Thank you for caring, though.
How much did you find out? I also saw the plane. Takes a few hours to get anywhere in the country. What did you see about my background? No one doing what you were doing should have to come home to that.
I will never replace them. Does that make sense? The valet had the door open, but she waited for me. Where did she learn that? I helped her out and we went inside. Nope, no wonder at all. We just left a car in the middle of the road and walked in the building. I read a lot before work this morning, and some at work between customers. Especially once I saw the plane.
I figured I had a lot to learn. And, I want to learn from you as well. We stopped inside the doorway and I took her jacket.
I leaned down and kissed her. Feed me, talk to me, and dance with me. We have a busy night ahead, Love. We were shown to a table, off to the side, yet in the center of everything. Private yet we could get to the dance floor easily, after we ate. The band was already playing, but we needed to eat first. The waitress brought us drinks, we had ordered water with lemon, and I got a bottle of bubbly Moscato, then she brought the Shrimp Salads.
Lots of shrimp, all cleaned with no tails, and lots of crisp lettuce, tomato, cucumber, onion, cilantro, and boiled egg. Not a meal one would normally pick for a dinner club night out, but we were late, and this seemed handy. Plus, I was in the mood for salad and Shirley had agreed it sounded good. I poured Shirley a glass of wine and told her not to worry. It was a private club, and no one would care anyway. With dinner over, and the wine gone, I had the waitress bring a mini of Verdi Spumante.
We poured it into our glasses. Then I put my napkin on the floor. She covered her mouth with one hand, looked into my eyes, as I was kneeling, but never let go with the hand I was holding as I went down. Just before I saw them break free, I grabbed her napkin from her lap and dabbed under her eyes.
She moved her hand from her mouth and smiled. I was on one knee. Just let them fall. Let them show you how much I love you. I pulled the ring out of my jacket pocket, thumbed the little velvet box open with my thumb, held it up to her. Then the tears flowed. She leaned in to me to kiss me. I love you, you wonderful man. Be careful with me. I took the ring out and placed it on her finger.
I was in eighth heaven. Seventh was when she said yes. Then, I reached for the champagne and we toasted the event. She kept looking at the ring, and I have to admit, it looked really good on her. It looked right at home. The parts I needed you to know about before I asked. But, yes, we do. Some tonight, and some for the rest of our lives. Do you have a hankie? I was a boy scout in my youth. I hugged her, then I started crying, too.
We went back to the table an absolute salt watery mess, and talked for a bit. You evidently read about the first one. Jill and the baby. Harsha Marsha, I call her now. And if she tries to contact me, well Anyway, divorced for 8 or so. She filled that void I was talking about, but it came to be that what she wanted was my money, not the love or companionship I was looking for.
She laughed at the prenup, thinking she could beat it, and wound up with a boyfriend and her car. I tried to give her money in the prenup, but she had it voided and took me to court. I am not going to talk about time lines, dates, schedules, or any of that, other than if I get an idea I want to share with you. That will be primarily your job in our relationship.
To that end, we need to discuss living arrangements for after school is over. Do you have anything besides Jennifer tying you to the Metro? The plan as of now is for you two to take the two guestrooms with the adjoining bathroom. There are queen beds, desks, dressers, and walk in closets in each.
If you want to live on campus, we can do that as well. We good so far? A very pretty slow song was playing. We danced a nice box step, to a basic love song. A hold your lady close and move together song.
I enjoyed dancing with Shirley. She was quite adept and followed well. When she spun, the skirt rose and displayed dancing panties, full granny cut satin panties, and a garter belt with stockings. The set, the dress, the panties, and all, were actually made for dancing and for women who wanted to, and could dance that well, show a little skin and excitement in the dance. Maybe I need to meet this judge. In any case, the night was an absolute success.
We had a couple sodas later, and danced and talked the evening away. I knew something was on her mind, so I asked. If I told you that Jennifer was not expecting me tonight and that I wanted you to take me back to River City, what would you say? You won me with your love and kindness. The ring just shows me and others that you did so. To make you my husband. Chuck, darling, why pretend. As soon as you asked me and I said yes, I was your wife.
She wished me luck. Take your girlfriend and make her your woman? We finished the dance and walked back to the table. You can take me dancing again next weekend if you want. My first spanking when I was like six or seven, when I found out Jill died, and with you. Take me to your cave. A very happy couple, after a very successful dinner date. You need to be strong for me.
I read a lot. What I want to happen. And I think I know, at least I hope I know, what you want to happen. Do you have any idea how reasonable, and wonderful you sound, coaching an old man through having fantasy sex with an elven goddess of his dreams?
Slowly, quietly, calmly, and in every way I can think of, but under my terms. I know I will. We got to the hotel and went straight to the room She had her bag, and I had taken some refreshments up earlier. A six pack of Select, some chips and a couple granola bars.
Plus, there were bottles of water in the room. I put them in the fridge with the beer earlier. The rooms had little fridges in them, so that worked out pretty well. She smiled and pulled the sliding door closed. I heard the sink, the toilet, the shower, and the blow dryer all run in about an 8-minute period.
She was wasting no time at all. When she emerged, she was a vision. In a little green chemise. And cute little bare feet. She set her bag on the dresser, hung her dress in the closet, and pointed her thumb to the bathroom. She smiled at me again and I melted. Cole said in an exclusive interview with 7 News.
They were married last Friday. At the wedding reception at the couple's Walnut Street home, police responded to a report of an argument between guests. That's when police realized Elisha had the order of protection. Timothy was immediately arrested and jailed. He'll appear in Batavia City Court on Tuesday at 1 p. August 10, permalink Kenn Richard, executive director of Native Child and Family Services of Toronto, says his agency was not involved in giving custody of Katelynn Sampson to Donna Irving, the woman accused of killing her.
But reading between the lines tells a different story. He refused to say whether he had monitored the girl, claiming confidentiality under the Child and Family Services Act. These confidentiality provisions have never in the past prevented children's aid societies from talking when they wanted to.
Katelynn's mother says children's aid was involved with her daughter. So it looks like a case of CAS failure after all. However, Kenn Richard refused yesterday to say whether his staff had ever overseen the care of Katelynn by her mother, Bernice Sampson, or her subsequent guardian, Donna Irving, who, along with her boyfriend, Warren Johnson, is charged with second-degree murder. Richard said outside the agency's College Street offices, citing a Child and Family Services Act section that forbids identification of people involved in child-welfare proceedings.
Irving shared with Mr. Johnson in the Queen Street-Lansdowne Avenue area in the city's west end. Police said the girl had been sleeping on a bedroom floor and that her body showed signs of repeated abuse. Her mother has since said two child-welfare agencies, the Children's Aid Society of Toronto and Native Child and Family Services of Toronto, had been involved with the girl's care, but both agencies have refused to confirm or deny this.
Meanwhile, an autopsy has been conducted and tissue and toxicology tests on Katelynn's remains are continuing, although a cause of death has not yet been determined, said David Evans, Toronto's supervising coroner for investigations. A funeral service will be held on Tuesday at 1 p. Evans said it is too early to say whether Katelynn's death will be the subject of a coroner's inquest or examination by Ontario's Paediatric Death Review Committee, which operates under the auspices of the Office of the Chief Coroner for Ontario and reviews child deaths, including all those in which the child was receiving services from a child-welfare agency.
In , the committee took in 76 reports of deaths in cases where children's aid societies were involved, four of which were deemed homicides. As of March 31 of that year, the province's 53 children's aid societies had 26, ongoing child-protection cases on their books. Bedbugs Bite August 9, permalink Canada Court Watch reports that group home residents have to put up with bedbugs and repeated insecticide sprays. August 9, Court Watch has received inside information that a Toronto region group home has been infested with bed bugs on intermittent basis for over 18 months with the problem continuing as of today.
It has been reported that the children in care are being bitten while they sleep. Children have had their personal belongings and clothing thrown out and are being forced to sleep on the floor without blankets.
The residence has been sprayed numerous times but the bugs keep coming returning. Questions can also be raised as to how much pesticide have the children been exposed to in this CAS home after repeated spraying. If these conditions existed in a private home, CAS would likely apprehend children from parents, yet when these deplorable conditions exist within a taxpayer funded CAS facility, nothing is done. Children report being threatened with punishment by CAS workers if the children say anything to anyone about what they see going on in these homes.
Sounds like this CAS facility should be closed down permanently! Canada Court Watch entry for August 9, After she was found dead, DFS refused to comply with a state law requiring disclosure in the case of dead foster children. They said her death does not fall under the definition of a child abuse and neglect fatality. Then why was she in their custody in the first place? Cases like this there are lots in states with disclosure laws show why having state agencies care for children cannot work.
They ignore the laws not to their liking and cannot be made to comply, since judges cannot hand down rulings opposing the full power of the state. Children will continue to suffer, and state agencies will continue to thumb their nose at the law, until the system is reformed to leave most of the children now in state care in their families, with the few intractable cases left to private charity.
Nicole is a misspelling, all other news reports call her Nichole. Aug 8, California has a law requiring disclosure of the CPS files of children who die. So how did CPS comply with the law? They altered Jahmaurae's records. The obvious purpose of the disclosure law is to allow the public to see the failures of CPS, and correct them through political and legislative processes. The alteration of records subverts the very purpose of the law, and facilitates the preventable deaths of future children.
One early version of the report from the social worker, who began handling an allegation of abuse involving the 4-year-old on June 19, described the allegation as "unfounded," two sources who read the document told The Bee this week.
Another version obtained by The Bee described the allegation of abuse of the little boy as "inconclusive. A top county official said today she was unaware of the varying case files until The Bee raised questions, and that an inquiry had begun. The existence of differing versions of the case file sparked outrage among children's advocates who work closely with the agency.
Some had been instrumental in getting the new California law passed, which forces county child welfare agencies to open the files of children who die on their watch. Last week in Philadelphia, criminal charges were filed against two social workers involved in a case that led to the starvation death of a disabled year-old girl.
Workers there were accused by the grand jury of falsifying documents after her death to make it appear as though they had performed their jobs properly. In New Jersey, a children's advocates group sued that state's child protection agency several years ago for allegedly ordering case files to be altered.
CPS has conceded that it should have done more to protect Jahmaurae before he was killed, and suspended the social worker in the case. At the time, the agency said the social worker "worked in isolation and did not follow established department procedures, such as: It remains unclear who completed portions of the file.
CPS documents show the social worker evaluated the case after a doctor reported to the agency June 17 that Jahmaurae might be the victim of physical abuse. That doctor reported finding a painful swelling and bruise on the boy's chest the size of an adult fist.
CPS documents indicate the social worker tried to contact the boy and his mother on June 19, going to their Foothill Farms apartment. The worker went to the wrong apartment at first, the documents state, and when she found the right apartment no one was home.
She left her card on the door and returned to make another attempt at contact June 21, the documents state, and left her card again.
She finally made contact when the mother called her June 23, according to an early version of the case file that was not released by CPS. The social worker went to see the family the next day, and Jahmaurae told her that the bruise on his chest had come from a fight with his 3-year-old brother. He "denied being hit by anyone else," it said. At some point, the social worker filed a report that the allegation of abuse was "unfounded," sources said. In CPS jargon, "unfounded" means the report is determined not to be true, according to agency literature.
But another report on the case obtained by The Bee - also not the one ultimately released by CPS - does not reflect that finding. Instead, that version reads: This was evidenced by lack of disclosure from the minor that the mother's boyfriend had hit him.
Also, the minor's sic were observed jumping off furniture and throwing things at each other. However, the documents CPS eventually provided The Bee under the new disclosure law do not contain either the "unfounded" or "inconclusive" findings.
Instead, those documents show the allegation of abuse was "substantiated" on the day Jahmaurae died. Such a finding means "there is credible information to believe that child abuse or neglect did occur," CPS background materials show. The documents CPS provided also differ from an earlier version of the case file in other ways. An entire passage in the document provided by a source does not appear in the documents released by CPS, and the content does not appear to be the type of sensitive information that typically would be redacted.
That passage, dated June 23, , discusses what happened when the social worker finally heard from Jahmaurae's mother: The mother stated she was afraid that this social worker was trying to take her children. The mother stated she is new here from the Bay Area. This social worker told her that I have to see her and the children and do an assessment and then we would talk further. William Grimm, a senior attorney at the Oakland-based National Center for Youth Law, said he was deeply disturbed by the "unfounded" report on Jahmaurae.
The suspect in the case is year-old Jonathan Lamar Perry, a 6-footinch, pound man who was in the apartment with Jahmaurae and the boy's month-old sister.
The children's mother was at the hospital late that night with her 3-year-old son seeking treatment for an illness. Sheriff's investigators say Perry became angry at Jahmaurae and beat him to death, then called and reported the child had had a seizure and was unconscious.
Perry is charged with murder and child endangerment in the case, and also faces charges for the alleged abuse of the 3-year-old. He is being held in the Sacramento County Jail and has yet to enter a plea. Robert Wilson, executive director of Sacramento Child Advocates, said Friday he "would sure be interested to see how CPS explains" the different versions of the case file.
His office, whose attorneys represent children in dependency court, received the same version from CPS that The Bee was given this week. Fellmeth, a former prosecutor, said the California government code is "very, very broad" and makes it a criminal offense to alter a public record - even if that record won't be given to the public.
The proper way to make changes in public documents is to "overlay, or add the correction - not subtract or erase or alter. The three men will have a bail hearing tomorrow at the courthouse at Yonge Street corner of College at 10am.
Tim Line as Batman on judge's roof. Girl Escapes August 8, permalink This story of a missing girl, Brittany Jeppesen, makes no mention of family, so we presume she has escaped from the "care" of the children's aid society. Brittany Jeppesen has been missing since July Brittany is described as 5- feet-8 inches tall and pounds. She has greenish-grey eyes, shoulder-length dark red hair and a light complexion She was last seen wearing a black and purple halter top with jean shorts, short green jacket with a peace sign on the back in black.
She was also wearing black flip-flops and was carrying a purple shoulder bag with the peace sign on it. Brittany is believed to be in the Sudbury or Toronto area. If you have any information with regards to the whereabouts of this child, please contact police. Lying to the public is not. Only after that route is exhausted is the child placed into a group home, Mr Dulmage is avoiding the consequences of his own financial mismanagement by resigning as of the end of In general, however, Mr.
Dulmage said more children are coming into care requiring the outside resources of a residential group home setting. The philosophy is to try to keep the child in his or her own home, a foster home or parent model homes, if possible. Only after that route is exhausted is the child placed into a group home, and those outside resources are more expensive, he said.
The bottom line is that both the child and the caregivers must be safe, Mr. Bob Connor of Connor Homes and his son Sean, who is second-vice-president of the Ontario Association of Residences Treating Youth, agree that there are more children with mental health issues such as those resulting from fetal alcohol syndrome or autism and who are developmentally handicapped.
But an association study has found that there is an average of four placements of a child elsewhere before the child ends up needing the care provided by hour staffing in a group home.
By the time the child gets the right placement they require more services Before the situation worsens, intervention and assessments should take place. And there should be line-by-line accounting of where the CAS's funding is being spent along the way, Sean O'Connor added.
The CAS has just undergone an in-depth service and financial review by the provincial government and the ministry has determined the children are being properly placed in group homes, Mr. The deficit is primarily due to purchasing these outside "group home" residential resources.
Dulmage Because children must be protected and that is the CAS mandate, there can be no waiting lists, he added. CAS even obliquely threatened them, suggesting the demonstration might be an inappropriate place to bring children.
Dugas and his friends were joined by around 30 fellow protestors of all ages, although some admitted to being there to support the young man's right to express his concerns in a peaceful and democratic way. Others clearly had their own agendas with the Children's Aid Society, although for the most part Mr.
Dugas's message remained coherently his. The protest proceeded despite a meeting held between the children and CAS executive director Colette Prevost on Tuesday. Perspectives on how that meeting went were decidedly different. Prevost said that while she met with the young protestor, it was difficult to answer many of his questions because they were very specific to one particular case-thereby being interdicted by the requirements of protecting the privacy rights of a ward of the CAS.
Dugas, in turn, was adamant that from his perspective the meeting was a complete wash. He said that he could not recall receiving answers to his questions even in general terms. Dugas said that the CAS had sent out a letter a copy of which was provided to the Expositor warning foster parents that the demonstration might be an inappropriate place to bring children. When asked if he had seen any 'bad people' at the protest, Mr. Dugas shook his head in the negative.
Dugas maintains that his primary concern is ensuring that the Children's Aid Society investigates where they place children thoroughly to ensure they are not putting the child at risk. His particular concern was about a young friend of his who was placed in a home where he understands there were drugs and alcohol being used. He maintains that the CAS did not act in a timely enough fashion to protect his friend and to remove the friend from that environment.
Prevost said that the decision processes under which the CAS operates are very complex, and difficult even for more experienced adults to understand. Prevost noted that the requirements of protecting and respecting the privacy of children can make communication in situations like these very frustrating for all parties involved.
But she stressed that, contrary to the impression being given by the protesting children and their supporters, there does exist a very stringent system of accountability for the CAS. While claims have been made that the CAS does not have a system of independent oversight, Ms. Prevost said that nothing could be further from the truth. The CAS internal complaint process provides a first level in an attempt to deal with a complainant's concerns. When that process does not solve the issue, Child and Family Services will review the matter in a provincially-mandated legal process.
In addition, every year a number of cases of the CAS receive a random audit to ensure that legal standards are being met by the CAS. Prevost clarified that the CAS concerns with the demonstration were more to do with the appropriateness of the venue as a means of communication.
Prevost said she would have preferred to see the demonstration held in a venue such as a school gymnasium. Killens went on to say that he is in support of an initiative to have the CAS placed under the purview of the Ontario Ombudsman's Office. Ontario, he claims, does not. Prevost was adamant that that point of view is not reflective of reality. The CAS, she maintained, is very closely monitored and reviewed.
Killens, in his capacity as school trustee, is currently working on a protocol for interaction between the CAS and the Rainbow board. He said he had been concerned over liability issues as there was no formal policy in place.
He praised the school board administration for their diligence in getting the policy in place. Killens expressed his disappointment at Algoma-Manitoulin MPP Mike Brown and the premier of Ontario, suggesting that the region's member of the Ontario legislature should have been at the protest and that the province needs to step in to ensure proper care is being given to the province's youth.
Off-Island media attended the event. With television cameras whirring, a TV journalist interviewed the young protestor and others on the scene.
Although a police cruiser drove past the demonstration twice during the hour, there was no overt police presence at the demonstration. Occupants of other offices at the building complex which houses the CAS were requested by the agency to park their cars at the far end of the parking lot to help ensure the children's safety.
Another group of young people was holding a demonstration at the corner of Highway 6 and Meredith Street-where they continued to wave their placards long after the central picket had closed down and everyone had gone home. Dugas said he was pleased with the turnout for the demonstration he had organized. He expressed some confusion over the online petition to have the CAS overseen by the Ontario Ombudsman.
Other vehicles simply honked in support as they drove past. Manitoulin Expositor follow continued to main story. Schaefer Defeated August 6, permalink Georgia state senator Nancy Schaefer, who spoke out against the abuses of the child protection system, has been defeated in an election.
And former state Rep. Gail Buckner unseated state Sen. Gail Davenport in the Democratic runoff. Butterworth, who will represent a northeast Georgia district, said he unseated Schaefer because he "had a team that could get our message out. By then Butterworth had already announced his candidacy. Buckner, meanwhile, was the Democratic nominee in a failed bid for the Secretary of State's seat in The Associated Press contributed to this report. A pending petition to remove eight children from their parents will be heard before Judge Barbara Walther on September The petition is to enforce a shotgun divorce — the mothers resisted a "safety plan" that required kicking the fathers out of the lives of the children.
Child protectors are fond of saying that children get a court hearing before removal from their parents except in cases of imminent danger. They conceal their habit of checking the imminent danger box in every case. In hundreds of parents interviewed, and thousands of cases examined on the internet and in news archives, this is the first hearing prior to child removal.
It takes a supreme court ruling to get child protectors to comply with the law on the scheduling of hearings. Foster Child Dies with Name August 6, permalink The Ontario press has departed from its usual silence and is reporting full details and names in the death of a child in non-parental care.
At least initially, it appeared to be a case of foster care without involvement of the child protection system. In other stories, the press has learned that a court made the foster mother, Donna Irving, the legal guardian of the now-dead child, Katelynn Sampson.
Donna Irving, charged with second-degree murder in the death of Katelynn Sampson, is seen in this court sketch. Social Worker Pay Rates August 5, permalink Philadelphia teenager Danieal Kelly had cerebral palsy, making her too much trouble to care for. Her mother let her die of starvation. In this kind of case, social services pleads for more money and power to prevent similar future tragedies.
At the same time, they make any social workers who should have been on the lookout for the remunerative case into scapegoats. Nine social workers have been suspended in Philadelphia. The Philadelphia Daily News has assembled a list of the nine with their salaries. It looks like social workers are anything but poor.
If you want to see the whole story of the child being shamelessly exploited in a bureaucratic power grab, it is in the grand jury report pdf, from the Philadelphia Inquirer or our local copy.
Don't go there if you are squeamish. Poindexter was suspended last week after being criminally charged in the case. Danieal was the second child to die on his watch. Poindexter was one of five social workers under her supervision.
The grand jury concluded that Walker essentially enabled Poindexter to brush off multiple abuse complaints, including allegations that Danieal's father beat her. Walker also was aware of complaints that Danieal wasn't in school or receiving medical care, and that neighbors heard her screaming.
She didn't require him to complete required investigative reports, according to the grand jury. Instead of ensuring that Poindexter did his job, Poller disposed of abuse complaints related to Danieal by marking them "unsubstantiated" in the DHS database, the grand jury says.
It concluded that Poller falsified records in Danieal's case to cover up the "nonperformance" of Poindexter, Walker and herself. She was responsible for ensuring that employees at MultiEthnic Behavioral Health, an outside contractor, did their jobs, specifically enrolling Danieal in school, getting her medical care, and connecting her with services for her cerebral palsy.
Sommerer had Danieal's case for 10 months before she died. The girl had not started school or seen a doctor during that time, the grand jury found. Every three months, Sommerer was required to visit Danieal's family and make sure that the children were safe. On a June 29, , visit to the home, Sommerer told grand jurors that she didn't enter the room where Danieal lay in bed.
The grand jury concluded that Sommerer backdated a report to cover up her negligence. In grand-jury testimony, Hawk admitted that she did not review the DHS file on the Kelly family until after Danieal died. Hawk claimed that she discussed the case with Sommerer and kept progress notes from the meetings, but no records were found to support her claim. Davis' job required him to review the Kelly case in June But he failed to do so, the grand jury concluded.
Mond gave Sommerer an "outstanding" performance review three days before Danieal's death. While Sommerer visited the Kelly family five times as required, she failed to notice "the girl was being starved to death," the grand-jury report concluded. He has been with DHS since During grand-jury testimony, Brown defended Sommerer's job performance, saying that she had met the "minimum expectations in case management. During the investigation into Danieal's death, Mayo testified that she never spoke with Sommerer, Mond, Davis, or Hawk about the case.
Mayo, year DHS employee, "made excuses for the employees' outrageous lapses and for her own failure to administer any consequences for failing to do their jobs," the grand jury concluded. Jersey Child Dump August 3, permalink Children's agencies in Britain shipped unwanted children to Jersey and kept no further records. No one knows how many survived and how many perished.

He ran into Manor Road, in the heart of the community, and was taken to safety after stopping a passing police car. The rabbi, on a four-day trip to London from his New York home, said: I decided it was getting too crowded, so I went outside. I saw them sending text messages and calling more people.

In Craig's case, the bleeding on his brain and behind his eyes, looked just like bleeding caused by Shaken Baby. Steve Smith was not allowed to stay in his own home for the sixteen months he spent proving his innocence.
Charges were eventually dropped. Laposata believes in cases of potential Shaken Baby Syndrome, the medical community should perform a whole battery of blood tests rather than performing the simplest or most common tests to be absolutely certain of whether there's been child abuse.

Fireproof Foster Home Needed July 28, permalink Winnipeg children's aid is looking for a foster home for a girl arsonist who intends to repeat her offense. Her attitude is the outcome of five years in foster care.
Dad can't stop her since, according to an earlier news story, he is in jail. Children's aid often does not notify the foster family of this kind of behavior, so another home could soon be in ashes.
Judge Michel Chartier sentenced the girl to two years supervised probation and released her into the custody of Child and Family Services. Where she will end up living is not clear. At a sentencing hearing earlier this month, a CFS worker said the agency has no secure placement for the girl and that jail was likely the safest place for her.
She has been in the care of CFS since she was eight years old. She is expected to be lodged in an "emergency placement" until long-term accommodations can be arranged. In an interview with police, the girl, then 12, said she "had fun" setting the fire and that the family who had been preparing to move into the home "can go to hell.

Facebook Defaced July 24, permalink Chris Carter reports that his Facebook account, containing stories about children's aid, was deleted in June. Now who would do a thing like that? Below is his email to a discussion group on the incident, copied with his permission. As for the question ending the email, we have heard of many attempts by CAS to get rid of internet criticism, some after legal action, as with Cathy Norris, some by direct threat to an ISP or site owners without legal action.

Anyway sometime in early June I logged onto my page and all of the info had been deleted. I contacted facebook and they formally and officially informed me that: I printed out the emails facebook and I exchanged and brought them into the Waterloo Regional Police Service's Division 2.
Detectives Howard Mark and Melinda Kuzyck interviewed me, accepted the material and promised to look into it. I've asked for updates a couple of times since then. I'm visiting them today to press for an update. I'll let you know what happened. Have you ever heard of a CAS taking action against an individual or group like that which occurred to me?
Respectfully, Chris Carter Source: They have systematically excluded participation by members of the public in observing, and participating in, CAS policy making. In your response, you made references to two provisions of the Corporations Act s.
