FOREST CITY — A member of the Winnebago County Board of Supervisors has been charged with public intoxication and carrying a firearm while under the influence.A Forest City police officer was dispatched to the Winnebago County Courthouse shortly after the conclusion of Tuesday morning’s meeting of the supervisors for a male that was possibly intoxicated.A criminal complaint says the officer spoke to 63-year-old Mike Stensrud of Lake Mills, and a breath sample that Stensrud agreed to provide to the officer showed that his blood alcohol level was .09. The complaint says the officer also examined a cup that Stensrud had and said the cup smelled of an alcoholic beverage. A video of the meeting, which you can see below, shows Stensrud drinking from a large plastic cup with a straw in it.The complaint also says the officer took a pistol out of Stensrud’s right pocket.Stensrud is scheduled to appear in court on June 24th.
Facebook20Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Rotary Club of OlympiaThe newly updated Cindy’s Closet at CYS Rosie’s Place offers youth a chance to find clean, gently used clothing at no cost.There are smiles all around these days at Rosie’s Place when their clients are in the need of “new” or clean clothes. Rosie’s is a teen drop-in center focused on providing services for homeless youth, as part Olympia’s Community Youth Services’ new Brighter Futures Youth Center at 520 Pear St. NE, Olympia.“Cindy’s Closet,” a name transferred from what began as a real closet in the original Rosie’s Place largely operated by CYS board member and volunteer Cindy Berger, is now an attractive outlet for donated duds where young people in need can expand their wardrobes.“It’s fantastic,” says Cindy. “When you operate largely without a budget, you scrounge a lot. When we started in the old building and kids would come in and pick out clothing items from a box on the floor or recycled bin we got for free. Having pristine display racks and shelving in the new building elevates everything and it really shows respect for the kids. They get to browse, and what I particularly enjoy about that is it gives me a chance to interact with them more, show people care about them and how they are doing. It is particularly gratifying to be able to go a little further in helping them understand and make the best use of the services available to them.”Rotary members, including retired professionals from all fields, very much enjoyed the day at Rosie’s Place. As Dr. Gerald Pumphrey, center above, recently retired president of South Puget Sound Community College said, “When you put together a group of Rotarians with good senses of humor and power tools, it is bound to be a very fun event.”The new Cindy’s Closet is the result of a District Community Grant from Rotary Club of Olympia. “The way it works,” says Rotarian Brian Martin, DSG Committee chair, “is we put up $2,500 in club funds which is matched by $2,500 from district, then volunteer Rotarian labor executes the project.”Development Director, Lynsi Polanco, explained, “This was a huge project that took a lot of resources to make it a reality. Rotary surpassed what we could have expected of their donation. The time and effort that was put into making Cindy’s Closet, the sorting area, and laundry room was a remarkable addition to a traditional donation.”“Brian was terrific,” according to Keylee Marineau, Rosie’s Place Outreach Director. “He worked with us every step of the way to be sure we got the outcome we wanted. He and his committee did all the leg work, purchased all the items, painted, assembled all the shelving and display materials, and got the washer and dryer delivered and set up. The value of their efforts probably doubled what we could have done had they just given us money.”Students from Olympia High School’s Interact Club, a Rotary sponsored service club, help paint Cindy’s Closet.The commercial washer and dryer accounted for more than half the grant budget, but clearly was a good investment. “It is used all day, every day,” says Keylee. “By having it in an accessible area, our kids can use it any time it is free, unlike the old place where they needed to find a staff member to unlock and relock the room. They love it.”Kadi Townsend, CYS Director of Administrative Services, called the project amazing. “It came at a perfect time for us,” she said. “Having Brian and the Rotary committee just take over that room and make it exactly what we wanted freed up a lot of time and resources we could dedicate to other aspects of the move into the new building.In addition to Rosie’s Place Drop-In Center and Street Outreach, the Youth Center also features an all new Young Adult Center and Gravity High School, a program to help drop-out students complete GED requirements and otherwise expand their educational opportunities.
IT + Project Management: A Love Affair klint finley Related Posts Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now You dial the conference call number. Or you can copy and paste it into Skype, or just click the link in your phone’s e-mail app. Then you have to enter your 12 digit conference ID number, or whatever this particular system calls it. If you’re on your phone and away from your computer, maybe you jotted it down on a piece of scrap paper. If not, you need to switch back and forth between your dialer and the app that the ID number.You punch in the number. You wait. Nothing happens. You realize you forgot to hit pound at the end. OK, pound. The robotic voice on the other end slowly, carefully reads the whole number back to you. Are you sure this is the number you meant to dial? Yes of course it is, stupid robot! You hit “one” to confirm. You wait. Sorry, this access code is incorrect. Please enter your 12 digit conference participant ID access code number followed by pound now. Arh, that wasn’t the right number after all. You try again, this time remembering to hit pound. The robot repeats it back to you again and you confirm. Finally, you enter the conference call, a bit late.Pleasantries are exchanged, the conference gets rolling and then…someone’s call gets dropped. Everyone waits for them to dial back in and run the access code gauntlet.Why do we still have to put up with this process in a time in which most of us are dialing in with sophisticated smartphones or from VOIP applications on powerful desktops? Sure, there are a couple alternatives. Many Web-based conference calls have VOIP option. But in my experience, the audio quality is usually unusably bad. I’m better off calling in with Skype than using the conference software’s native voice support.The conference organizer may also be able to dial-out to the participants. If everyone’s on Skype, someone can just call all the other participants to initiate a conference. WebEx has that call me back feature, if you’re willing and able to launch the application and login that way.But shouldn’t it be possible, since nearly everyone will be calling from some sort of technologically advanced device, to embed the access code into a link that could be clicked just once to dial into the conference? It might require partnering with carriers and handset manufacturers, but wouldn’t it be much nicer to click once to call a conference?There are a few third-party apps that try to mitigate the experience by letting you paste your conference ID into a specially designed conference call dialer, but I’d like a more seamless experience provided by conference call vendors directly, and without needing to download dedicated apps.I suppose this is the sort of problem unified communications is supposed to solve eventually. Why not solve it now, instead of in some magic time in the future when we’re all running interoperable UC platforms?Feel free to steal this idea, or to tell me about those that are already implementing it.Photo by Samantha Celera Tags:#Communications#enterprise Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of…
