By Tiffany Mayer, OSPREY NEWS NETWORK - Her official job title is hostess at the Russell Avenue Community Centre. But Grace Black would say “a little bit receptionist, a little bit secretary” would also do when it comes to describing what she does.

“It’s really a little bit of everything,” said Black, who has worked at the centre for 2 1/2 years.

Two weeks ago, a little bit of everything included tipping off authorities that a person with the same name as a person convicted of assaulting children was frequenting the centre, which is also a popular spot for youth.

Now a St. Catharines city councillor wants to recognize Black with a letter from council expressing gratitude for the job she does at the centre. (more…)

Rude behavior lands KC lawyer in jail

| at 11:03 am

ASSOCIATED PRESS - SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — An attorney’s rude behavior has earned him a four-month stay in the Greene County Jail.

Greene County Circuit Court Judge Tom Mountjoy sentenced Kansas City lawyer Carlos D. Romious to 120 days in jail last week because of Romious’ “rude and angry” demeanor toward the judge.

It’s unclear from court records what ultimately led Mountjoy to incarcerate Romious, but the judgment of contempt Mountjoy filed on July 24 outlines past outbursts by Romious in the judge’s courtroom.

Romious was representing Alton L. Vaughn, of St. Charles, in a jury trial for allegedly defrauding eight people from December 2003 to May 2005. (more…)

Jack Talk Blog, OUTSPORTS.COM - Jeff Kennett, the ex-premier of Victoria state in Australia, backed the firing of a trainer for the Bonnie Doon [Australian Rules] Football Club after it learned he was gay. He equated the trainer’s sexuality with being a pedophile. The Herald Sun newspaper reported Kennett’s defense of Bonnie Doon firing Ken Campagnolo (photo):

“The club felt that once this had been pointed out and you had this gentleman there who was obviously close to young men — massaging young men — it ran an unnecessary risk and that’s why it decided it was best that he not perform those duties again. So the club was trying to do the right thing,” Mr Kennett said.

“It’s the same if you have a pedophile there as a masseur, right? And you might say the pedophile would do no damage, but once it was pointed out to you, you have a duty of care to those underage children not to put them in a situation of risk.” (more…)
