womens ugg gloves Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 G1 Gaming Video Card Review

If you ware looking for an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card to purchase you will quickly find that there are 21 different models widely available from NVIDIA board partners in North America. Gigabyte alone has five different models to pick from as you haveGigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 Founders Editionfor those that are looking for the NVIDIA reference design and then four custom cards. The custom cards include the Gigabyte GTX 1070 Mini ITX OC model for Small Form Factor (SFF) builders, a GTX 1070 WindForce OC model as the entry level card, a GTX 1070 G1 Gaming aimed at gamers and then the GeForce GTX 1070 Extreme Gaming for those that are concerned with overclocking or what the highest clock speeds possible. Most gamers aren to pay a premium for the Founders Edition by NVIDIA and while we love the Mini ITX form factor the full sized cards are still the most popular cards sold. That leaves three full sized Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 models that gamers will be interested in picking.

The lowest priced Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 is the WindForce OC model at $399 and you can think of this as the entry level card with the lowest clock speedsand a GPU cooler with theleast number of fans. Up from there you have the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 G1 Gaming OC that has slightly higher clock speeds along with a beefed up GPU cooler for only $30 more bucks. Then for another $20 you have the totally decked out Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 Xtreme Gaming that has the highest clock speeds, largest GPU cooler, full RGB lighting and the longest warranty (to get 4 years you might register it right away).

The model that we be looking at today is the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070G1 Gaming as it is aimed at gamers and at just $429 it costs less than the Founders Edition model and looks to have some great features.

The card that we are looking at today is theGigabyte GTX 1070G1 Gaming and they styling of the card shouldn come as a shock to anyone. Gigabyte has stuck with a black PCB, flat black fan shroud with some orange accents that form an and black fan blades. Most gamers are happy with black and it doesn appear that the video card manufacturers are wanting to stray away from that color much these days.

The WindForce 3x GPU cooler has three 11 blade 90mm dust proof cooling fans (Power Logic PLD08010S12H) that are optimized for silent airflow. Gigabyte calles these 3D Active fans and claim that the raised triangle shaped edges help increase the airflow by up to 23% over a traditional smooth fan blade surface. The fans help dissipate the heat from twoaluminum finned cooling arrays that are interwoven with two large copper composite heatpipes that make direct contact with the GPU. The design looks to be well done and the GPU cooler does use athermal pad that makes contact with the MOSFETs to ensure the PWM components are kept at safe temperatures to ensure product longevity. Gigabyte is using a 6+2 power phase design for those that are concerned about having stable voltage output.

The Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070G1 Gaming is a fairly large card that measures in at280mm x 114mmx41mm (L x W x H), so at 11 inches in length you might want to make sure it fits in your chassis if you have a mid tower or some other smaller chassis. Along the top edge of the card the Gigabyte logo and the words Stop feature 16.8M color customizable RGB lighting with some neat lighting effects that can be managed through the Gigabyte Xtreme Engine Utility.

Like many of the other NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070cards on the market, the Gigabyte GTX1070 G1 Gaming features a semi passive fan design.

Along the top edge of themounting bracket you find the NVIDIA SLI interconnect for those that wanted to run two of these cards together for improved gaming performance. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 series doesn have SLI multi GPU support, so the GeForce GTX 1070 is the lowest priced Pascal GPU powered card to support SLI.

Gigabyte claims that they used their Gauntlet Sorting system for the GeForce GTX 1070 G1 Gaming to ensure higher overclocking than the GeForce GTX WindForce OC models. Gigabyte does have a dual bios solution in place on this card, but it an automated process where if one BIOS fails the card rolls over to the second one without you having to do anything.

The Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070G1 Gamingcomes with a full coverage black metal back plate to help protect the components on the back of the card and to add rigidity to the card to keep it from looking saggy on the far side of the PCIe x16 slot interface.

Gigabytewent with three DisplayPort 1.4 outputs as well as singleHDMI 2.0b andDual Link DVI I when it comes to video outputs. We aren going to bother showing you the box or retail bundle as you just get a quick start guide and a driver disc (who really loads drivers from a CD ROM these days anyway?).

To get the best user experience with the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 G1 Gaming you need to download a utility called Xtreme Gaming. This software allows you to control all your Gigabyte gaming devices (video cards, mice, keyboard etc.) and it also allows you to overclock the graphics card. The Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 G1 Gaming comes out of the boxin gaming mode, so if you want to run the higher factory overclock speeds you need to set it to OC mode. You can also choose to manually overclock the card and this utility allows you to adjust clock speeds, voltages, fan speeds, power limits and the temperature limit. You can also adjust the fan speed curve along with the LED RGB lighting color, styles and brightness. This application even allows you to log the data from the video card, so it is a very robust utility that comes in handy. We left the card at the default mode setting as that is how it comes out of the box and we figured most people will leave it like that especially if they don install this optional utility.

office ugg boots gifts Volkswagen Beetle she got on Oprah Winfrey’s TV show

Photo by Don Treeger / The RepublicanJo Ann Churchill, of Easthampton, is all smiles Thursday at Northampton Volkswagen as she gets behind the wheel of her new Volkswagen Beetle for the first time. She won the car on Oprah Winfrey’s last TV show.

WEST SPRINGFIELD Oprah Winfrey evidently doesn approve, but Nancy M. Amanti, of Westfield, has re gifted one of the talk show host most famous Things anyway.

This particular Thing is a Red 2012 Volkswagen Beetle gleaming on the showroom floor of Fathers Sons Inc. and the matching Coach brand handbag dangling from the driver side mirror. Amanti took possession on Thursday and immediately sold the car to the dealership for $20,895.

extra money I have I throw towards Hope for Limpopo anyway, Amanti explained. wouldn know what to do with all of these things. (Those other things, by the way, included Ugg boots, an iPad and LeCreuset cookware; Things became an annual treat for lucky Oprah fans when she gave away gifts of the she loves to her audience members.)

Photo by Mark M. Murray / The RepublicanNancy Amanti, of Westfield, looks over the brand new 2012 Volkswagen Beetle she received as one of Oprah Winfrey’s last ever Favorite Things episodes. Looking on is Damon S. Cartelli, of Father and Sons, Inc., the dealership that handled the delivery. She and her colleague JoAnn Churchill, each got a bug for their charity work with Hope for Limpopo an agency they started that on behalf of women and children in South Africia. Fathers and Sons paid Armanti for the car and will now sell it.

Amanti, Jo Ann Churchill, of Easthampton, and Churchill late husband Vaughn founded Hope for Limpopo in 1998 following the Churchills Peace Corps service in South Africa. Named for the Limpopo province of South Africa, the group raises money for Vhutshilo Mountain School, a school for AIDS orphans and the Thohoyondou Victim Empowerment Program, an agency that supports and advises women and children who are victims of sexual abuse and domestic violence.

Their good work got them invited to the taping of one of the final episodes of the Oprah Winfrey Show last November. At the time of the invitation, Amanti said, all they were told was that it was going to be one Winfrey final syndicated shows before moving to her own cable network and the show purpose was to honor Heroes.

then the curtain opened up, (and) we found out is was going to be a gift show, she recalled.

During a break in the show, Amanti asked Winfrey if she could give away the gifts or sell them to benefit their charities.

room got silent, Amanti said. was this sense that she was about to impart this life lesson. Oprah told me that in order to give, you first have to learn how to receive gifts.

Churchill, who picked up her Beetle (a silver version) at Volkswagen of Northampton, said she doesn know yet what she do with her car, donate it to the Limpopo effort or drive it in gratitude as Oprah would want. She currently drives a Honda CV, a model she says is good for driving in New England winters.

Delivery of the Beetles that came courtesy of Oprah to all her audience members from that show were being made across the country as part of a national promotion sponsored by Volkswagen of America.

The 2012 Beetle is a redesign. The cars get 22 mpg in the city and 29 highway with a 2.5 liter engine and have a sticker price of $21,655.

Churchill and Amanti spent time in South Africa this summer looking in on the progress both the school and the victim organization are making. The Thohoyondou Victim Empowerment Program now has a home for the victims to live.

they had to stay in the same room with their offender, she said.

Amanti said there is still much to do. The school has 20 or more students who have no financial sponsorship. need to keep that school open, Amanti said.

ugg classic short boot chestnut Gifts for New Jersey college students

Techie gifts like an e reader or an iPad, brand name boots, tickets to a sporting event or just some cold, hard cash, according to an informal poll of about 30 college students taken earlier this week by student reporters in a Feature Writing class at Kean University in Union.

Ugg boots topped the brand name gift list on the New Jersey campus.

Designer gifts mentioned were Coach handbags and Michael Kors pumps. The Wii was also a choice as were Wii games. Amy Dombro, sophomore psychology major, said she hopes to get the Glee Karaoke for Wii.

friends and I watch Glee every Tuesday and we sing along, said Dombro. with this, at least we know the right lyrics. Deyna Jeckyll, a senior, said she is hoping for a trendy new bag that is also sensible. “I’m asking for a cross body bag, she said. I need to condense my purse into a smaller bag, rather than having to carry a wristlet around my wrist, it is so much easier just to have a wristlet size bag across my body. Plus they are cute!”

Many students were surprisingly practical, asking for gifts that could advance their careers or help them complete college.

“I would probably want a camera with a wide lens since I’m taking photography in the spring,” said Amber Brown, a junior.

Music student Mike Cohen said he is asking for a new guitar. graduating this year and I want to go into music professionally so I going to have to get some real professional equipment that works.

Shawn Albanese, a junior majoring in Secondary Education, said he wants a Kindle e reader where he can store many of his textbooks via downloads.

“I hope I get a Kindle because it’s nice not to have to lug a number of heavy textbooks around, Albanese said. you need is the touch of your finger and the book instantly appears right in front of you.”

And student Anthony Viera, who is Kean freshman class president, said a gas card is on his list gas is so expensive.

For those who want to give techie gift, students mentioned Mac laptops and the Blackberry. But apparently the techie gift this year is the iPad, said 19 year old Chris Riva.

“iPad is the hottest thing next to iPod, said the college sophomore “Laptops are not as popular anymore. It’s more about the iPad.”

When in doubt, the college kids said give money.

“It’s just easier. If I have it, I can spend it on whatever I want. I’d probably get clothes or sneakers,” said freshman Robert Rivera.

Of course, in a perfect world where money is no object, the gift choices change.

Dan Manuapelli, 23, said in an ideal world, he would want season tickets to the Yankees, I can hopefully see Derek Jeter get his 3,000th hit.”

For Steve Mendoza, a senior majoring in Media and Film, the dream gift now would be for someone to pay off all my school loans because having debt is terrible.”

Others want to travel. “I would love to go on vacation outside the country because my friends are always going to these great places and I’d love to have that experience,” said Vanessa Tobar, freshman majoring in Psychology.

Jake Clinebell, a junior, said he like to go to Disneyworld. want a night in that castle, he said.

But some gifts even money can buy. Sean Rella, 24, said his perfect Christmas gift this year would be a letter of acceptance from Seton Hall Law School.

Several students said they were already receiving their gifts everyday the chance to go to college. don’t really want anything from my mom because she helps me out all year long with my tuition,” said student Heather Pasco.

And Uhunoma Woghiren, a 28 year old student, said his favorite gift is to give to others. He said he intends to visit the Salvation Army and donate some clothes to the needy.

“Coming from a less privileged background, I know what it means not to have any thing as a gift during this period of festivities, he said. giving to this group of individuals will make me feel good.”

ugg mens slippers uk Gift inspiration this Valentine

We often celebrate Valentine’s Day at Waterside Shopping Centrewith a survey and this year is no different!

Earlier last week, we spoke with 100 shoppers, half men and half women, asking how their significant other could really make their Valentine’s Day extra special this year. Nearly everyone mentioned something more personal than the standard box of chocolates or bouquet of roses.

Some of you may be saying “there are only a few days left!” don’t panic! I’ve put together some ideas based on our survey results that will give you a bit of inspiration as you start planning the best way to your lover’s heart.

A Romantic Meal In

Valentine’s Day is one of the busiest nights of the year for restaurants. This means it can be really difficult booking at the place and time you really want. Instead of making your way into the city centre, why not split dinner duty with your partner by drawing straws so that one of you makes the main meal and the other makes dessert?

Whatever you do, be sure to go all out with fancy plates, napkins and candles to create the perfect romantic ambiance!

Next’s ‘Home’ section has some fabulous items to make your romantic meal extra special. For under 40, you can pick up heart shaped placemats, a tablecloth and even artificial flowers.

Pamper Your Partner

Nothing beats feeling like a king or queen, so why not spoil your spouse or partner? A spa day always goes down a treat, but if your budget won’t stretch that far, try thinking about how you can bring the luxury of a spa home with you. One idea is to make a pamper basket filled with bath bombs, bubble bath, herbal tea, lotions and oils, candles, a relaxing CD, a fresh white towel and maybe even a new robe or slippers. You could even go a bit further by spending some time researching massage techniques so you can really surprise them.

The Body Shop has loads of skincare and pamper products that come in a huge range of different scents for her we love the Spa Of The World Tahitian Orchid Massage Oil. And for your guy, there’s a Hemp Head To Toe Body Care Set.

You can also pick up a bath bomb and bubble bath for under 7 at Superdrug and some candles from New Look for 3 to create a relaxing bath experience. To top it off, Office has some comfy UGG slippers for your partner’s precious feet.

A Special Token Of Love

Nothing says love like a beautiful piece of jewellery to be treasured and worn for years to come but before you rush out to the nearest shop to buy the shiniest piece within your budget, take a step back and think about your partner’s personal style. Is she an earring kind of girl or more likely to wear a bracelet? Will he ever actually wear that necklace or would a watch be better? Do they prefer the colour of silver or gold? Give these things a bit of thought and they’ll be sure to love your gift.

Guys: sneak off to Goldsmiths next time you’re in the city centre to take advantage of their 50% off sale (only on selected pieces). Or if you’re on a budget and looking for something a bit more fun, Claire’s has some cute and funky earrings for under 5.

For him, Lincoln Watch Clinic, Saltergate, has a magnificent Storm Men Dualon Brown Watch for 179.99.

Treat Them To The Scent Of Love

Who doesn’t love smelling beautiful? If your man or woman has a favourite fragrance, it might be worth having a look to see if they’re running low and are in need of a new bottle. Or, if you’re feeling adventurous, spend some time in town testing some new scents in search of one that truly reflects the love of your life.

The Fragrance Shop currently has up to 50% off selected his and hers fragrances until Valentine’s Day. If you’re not sure where to start, pop in and speak with the team, who will be happy to help you find the perfect gift in your price range.

A Sexy Surprise

Nothing says Valentine’s Day like a little spice, so why not cap your day of love and pampering off with one final treat? Whether it’s steaming things up with a cute little lingerie number or some other kind of cheeky surprise, a bit of extra TLC could go a long way in ending Valentine’s Day in the most memorable and fun way!

Next’s Red Cara Lace Push Up Plunge Bra could make for the perfect sexy surprise for your partner. And guys, Next also has a range of pants in all sorts of styles from boxers to briefs. Why not surprise your valentine with a style they not used to seeing you in?

More importantly than anything else, Valentine’s Day is a chance to not only tell the special man or woman in your life that you love them, but to show them that love through action from buying a thoughtful gift or making dinner to pampering and spoiling them rotten.

If you need a bit more inspiration to make this year’s big day a bit more special, stop in at the Waterside and have a chat with the staff working for any of our retailers they are all always ready and willing to help!

ugg adirondack sale Gift ideas abound for the seniors on your list

ugg bag sale Gift ideas abound for the seniors on your list

It can be tricky to think of gifts for older relatives and friends. Often they insist they don’t want or need anything, but you still want to get them something thoughtful.

Who better to come up with ideas than staffers at retirement communities, social workers, shopping experts and, of course, seniors themselves?

First of all, they say, remember that everyone has different interests, lifestyles and needs. Your senior could be an active adult with lots of varied interests, or he/she may have experienced some physical or cognitive setbacks. And consider the finances. Some seniors have no money worries. Others do.

Your own budget matters, too, of course. If the gift you’d like to give costs more than you can afford, ask other family members to pitch in. Remember, you aren’t the only one who may want to offer your special senior a gift. And often, it turns out, the most appreciated gifts cost little or nothing.

Presence as presentsSometimes the most practical, useful and personalized gifts translate into “presence,” rather than “presents,” says Jackie Burch, executive director of Lancaster County Office of Aging.

“For example, help a senior with errands and transportation,” she suggests. “Older people often have limited mobility or no nearby family, so it becomes hard for them to enjoy basic tasks like holiday gift or grocery shopping.

“Or visit with or invite a senior to dinner for the holidays. Amidst the joy and excitement of the holidays, many seniors experience sadness and loneliness. A simple dinner invitation could go a long way to brighten someone’s day.”

Other suggestions involving “presence” include walking the dog or feeding the kitten, and helping with chores around the house. Create a coupon book, outlining such activities.

Seniors speak upLancaster County seniors, it appears, don’t want to overburden gift givers. Their wish lists are modest

Rebecca Wise, activities director at Traditions of America, a 55 plus community in Lititz, queried residents, and all put a restaurant gift certificate at the top of their lists.

“They said they love going out, having somebody else cook,” Wise says.

“Somebody gifted my mother with a car detailing certificate last Christmas,” says Peg Porell of Manheim Township. “She loved that, and I think it’s a great gift for any senior who is still driving. I, for one, would appreciate theater tickets, restaurant and spa visit certificates.”

Aggie Romeo, a new Lancaster resident, asks for an E ZPass for the tolls plus a gasoline gift card to help with visits to her grandchildren in the New York area. She also lists a magazine or newspaper subscription “to be happily reminded of them with every issue.” Other ideas: a gift card for home cleaning and lightweight, battery operated tools (she loves her weed wacker, she says).

Karen Schultze of Gordonville asks for experiences. “Workshops and seminars rank high on my wish list,” she says. “Also a certificate to a favorite restaurant like Reflections, Carr’s or Log Cabin. Or to a nice B for a weekend away.”

Helpful giftsShopping experts from malls and stores have plenty of suggestions for senior gifts

For example, Ronald Grembowiec of Lancaster Computer Co., says a tablet with a user friendly touch screen and large font options is excellent for seniors, but he suggests including learning sessions with such a gift. “Older people are often afraid of getting into the digital world,” he says. “But we will come to somebody’s home and teach them how to get the most out of the the gadget.”

Clothes are often considered a boring gift, but Bon Ton’s Susan Head reminds us that many seniors go for years without anything new in their wardrobe. She suggests a packable winter coat that can go along on a trip, suitcase included. Or cozy Ugg slippers or Heat Holder Socks. And a nonclothes item: the Healthy Senior Nutri Ninja Blender, which can do smoothies, blended cocktails, soups and ice cream.

Monica Trego, general manager of Tanger Outlets, says seniors have definite favorites among the center’s many shops, including Yankee Candle, Talbot’s and Kitchen Collection, but this Christmas there will be 80 additional stores. Among them are the Book Warehouse and River Street Sweets, both sure to lure seniors.

Gardening tools especially designed for people with arthritis are suggested by Emma Gilsanz of Boomly, an online store selling items for seniors. She also likes the Bella electric ceramic kettle, which automatically cuts the power if there’s no more water left in it excellent for somebody who likes a good cup of tea, but might forget the tea kettle on the stove.

But most of all, she likes StoryWorth, which helps seniors record their stories through weekly emails, sent for a year, with questions that will inspire them to start talking about their lives. “What’s the bravest thing you’ve ever seen” and “Have you ever pulled a great prank?” Are two typical questions. Stories are securely stored on the family’s StoryWorth account and can be easily shared with family members. After a year, the StoryWorth team will create a hardcover book featuring all the stories.

If you’re still uncertain what to get for your senior relative or friend, ask him or her if there was ever something they wanted to do, but it never came to pass. That’s sure to be a jewel for present and future gift giving. It could be something as simple as a Sunday drive to Winterthur or a trip to Key West. Or it might be dance or music lessons.

black ugg boots size 5 ghost dressed as a sad clown in photo show

Shortly before Jay Procktor dad Larry Procktor died of cancer, his son made a proposition. The two were terrific friends and the son asked his father to pose for a formal portrait in a Burger Baron they loved, dressed as a sad clown.

That may seem strange and random, but when Procktor was young, his dad used to play saxophone in a clown marching band for corporate and family events. clown band would march in with their cymbals and their drums, and I would just jump under the table and grab my mom leg.

bawled my eyes out, he laughs. was horrifying. a decent dad, the elder Procktor subsequently tried to soften the blow. dad would put on the clown makeup at home, so I could see the transformation slowly but the same thing would happen. I just bawl my eyes out. later, as he sensed his dad getting sicker, Procktor had the idea for the clown photograph in Burger Baron. chemo, the third time it came back, I said to him, we going to do this, I think we need to do it now. said, why don we wait till after the treatment? And as hard as it was I was like, don know if there necessarily going to be an after. was sick and exhausted. It was a gift he gave me by doing that. where the story gets fascinating, and brings us to Procktor amazing performance art photo show, Good Grief, up at the Nina Haggerty Centre for the Arts through Feb. 5. For its photos printed on aluminum, over the course of five years, Procktor travelled as far as Boston and the south of France, dressing as a clown to confront his own feelings of something gigantic now missing.

2012 was a rough year for the artist, known around town for his energetic, luminous portraits. First, he lost his best friend Sean Devine who endured the physical cocktail of nonprogressive muscular dystrophy and scoliosis. Procktor lived with Devine and provided home care for more than a decade. were basically a common law relationship, 43 year old Procktor smiles. much as I was a home care provider, he really took care of me. boom, five months after losing Devine, his dad died, too 82 years old.

because my dad was gone, I wasn done with him. I missed him. A year later I felt like doing this project,

as cheesy as it is, to spend more time with him. This whole process was coming to terms with the loss of those two guys, my closest friends who knew me better than anyone good or bad, right or wrong. 15 photos of and directed by Procktor (various others pressed the trigger) are striking, strange and beautifully revealing. From them we know the father loved his wife, swimming, skating, playing the sax with his friends. He also loved Peanuts, and the Charlie Brown connection has to do with an old timers hockey tournament cartoonist Charles M. Schulz founded in 1975 that he attended year after year, while the show title Good Grief came from a boat name found in a video the elder Procktor had shot. I saw it, it was such serendipity, just perfect, said the photographer.

One of the photos has sad clown Jay Procktor in the suit outside Fenway Park in Boston, his dad a Red Sox fan. In another, the artist is stone thrown from where (his father) grew up, knee deep in Lake Manitou, holding balloons. idea was to revisit places that were meaningful to him.

kept asking myself, just don get it, where is he? This sad clown is looking for him in all these places. And I found him in all these places. ask him if when he was shooting, strangers ever came up and asked to pose with him. He laughs, it more like they were afraid. to Procktor reaction to his dad as clown as a kid, that discomfort is actually naturally baked into this art show about death there a very clean metaphor here. not a happy looking dude in that outfit. It a little disquieting, and I don mind if people feel a little bit uncomfortable. hasn shown his family the 15 photos yet, waiting to present them all at once at the opening Saturday afternoon, where his dad longtime bandmate Larry Harris will play keyboards. Procktor performance photos end with the amazing photo of his father at Burger Baron as a sort of striking punchline: sad and wonderful. It extremely moving.

Jay Procktor’s last formal portrait of his father from 2011.

a school teacher, and no one really teaches us how to deal with grief our society doesn know how to handle it.

seems silly but it was literally like hanging out with him. There was a 40 year age difference between us, and I wasn a big sports guy, and he wasn into what I was into but we go for lunch and I take his photo because it was something we could do. notes, during the five year endeavour, did find him. I needed to feel it all the way and twist the knife. But the funny, stupid clown part of it was he was there all the time. I go out searching, but I didn really need to go anywhere because he right here.

ugg kensington 1969 boots black Gettysburg man faces multitude of charges after attempting to flee from West York traffic stop

WEST YORK A 22 year old Gettysburg man is facing multiple charges after allegedly attempting to elude a police officer who was trying to perform a traffic stop Sunday on the 1200 block of W. Market Street.

Tevin Najee Johnson, of the first block of High Street, Gettysburg, is charged with Fleeing or Attempting to Elude Police, Flight to Avoid Trial/Punishment, Possession With Intent to Deliver a Controlled Substance, Possession of a Controlled Substance, Possession of a Small Amount of Marijuana, Recklessly Endangering Another Person, Driving Under the Influence, Reckless Driving, Accident Involving Damage Attended Vehicle/Property, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Driving Under a Suspended License.

According to police, an officer driving behind Johnson silver Infiniti sedan noticed the smell of marijuana coming from the vehicle as it traveled westbound on the 1200 block of W. Market Street. The officer attempted to pull Johnson vehicle over, but after stopping for a moment at the 1900 block of W. Market St., Johnson allegedly made a U turn into the eastbound lanes of and took off at a high rate of speed,

according to the criminal complaint.

The officer pursued, observing as Johnson vehicle reached speeds up to 90 miles per hour, the criminal complaint says. Johnson allegedly passed several eastbound vehicles by swerving into opposing lanes, according to the criminal complaint. When the vehicle reached the intersection of W. Market Street and S. Richland Avenue, Johnson allegedly attempted a right turn, but struck another vehicle at the intersection, police say.

As the officer arrived at the intersection, he observed a man, later identified as Johnson, exiting the vehicle and fleeing south on Richland Ave., the criminal complaint says. Johnson ignored several commands to stop before finally sitting down in a parking lot on the 900 block of W. King Street, where he was taken into custody, according to the criminal complaint.

Johnson allegedly told police he was on the run. Police confirmed that there were arrest warrants for Johnson out of Adams and York counties. He was also found to be driving under a suspended license.

Police searched Johnson vehicle and allegedly discovered a small amount of marijuana on the driver side floorboard, a marijuana roach in the center console, two baggies of suspected crack cocaine concealed in a jacket in the rear of the car, and three digital scales, the criminal complaint says.

i heart ugg Getting Personal

Getting Personal is an email Q with a local personality. Getting Personal appears first in print., in Sunday editions of The News Gazette. In the Jan. 15 newspaper, we’ll have a chat with LaDonna Wilson, a teacher and the drama director at Central High School. I am a night owl, however, and combine a little TV watching with my hubby and some laptop work until at least midnight.

What do you do the first hour of the morning?

Eat breakfast while watching the national news with my husband. Then it’s a trip to the hot tub to keep my flexible frame working.

What did you have for lunch today? Where? With whom?

A fresh lettuce and veggie salad with chicken teriyaki strips. On our glorious four season glass sun porch built with loving hands by my husband, with a great view of our backyard and all the leaves yet to be gathered ‘ere the winter storms begin. My husband of nearly 16 years, a retired building contractor. He’s the reason we have seven additions on our house since we moved here in 1996.

“Best” of anything is always difficult. But my dad was the music instructor at our high school, so I have many wonderful musical memories marching band, choral and solo contests, learning to play a snare drum cadence (when the drummers didn’t show for a parade) so the band could march on Memorial Day. Because our high school burned down three weeks before graduation, the senior class used several venues in our town of Savanna as classrooms. It was a little preview of what it would be like in college. We graduated on our athletic field, and I played for my own graduation, having recorded “Pomp and Circumstance” on the church’s pipe organ.

Tell me about your favorite pair of shoes.

Being prone to go barefoot when I can, I’ll rifle through my closet and tell you there are three pairs my Ugg bedroom slippers, my Saucony shoes (for walking my country road, where many Chorale ideas are generated) and my black satin 4 inch heels with a rhinestone clip, which are fun to wear at performance events for very short periods of time.

What does a perfect Sunday afternoon include?

There’s that “perfect,” “best of” question again. Sunday evenings are rehearsal times for The Chorale, so there is usually some prep work going on. But on a balmy, sunny day, a quick drive through a favorite restaurant and a picnic at Lake of the Woods is always a welcome Sunday afternoon activity.

Was there one book you read as a child that you still cherish? Own? Read?

I think my mother introduced every baby she ever knew, including her own two children, to the Peter Rabbit series, and I have tried to continue that tradition. I certainly own many of the Peter Rabbit series. McGregor’s garden in the yard, set up just exactly as you see it in the book, tipped over pot and all. At each point in her home, which was a site of one of her drawings, was a copy of the book opened to the exact page where the picture occurs in the story a very nice touch.

Where on earth are you dying to go? Why?

I’d love to walk the Milford Trek in New Zealand to see the countryside and to prove I could do it.

Tell me about your favorite pet.

All of my adult life, I’ve owned Shetland sheep dogs Shelties for short. My idea of a good time in Ireland was visiting a working sheep farm and watching those animals have their way with the sheep. Such bright dogs and easy to train.

Have you discovered as you matured that you are becoming like one of your parents? Which one and how?

Yikes! Another difficult question. I suppose matured is the operative word here. I’ve always been more like my dad in coloring, temperament and interest in music. Some might say I’ve “mellowed” over time and become a bit more like my mother. She was gracious and not fault finding. I think my mom thought I was a bit too curious and perhaps too ready to speak in a straightforward manner. I’d like to think I have some of the best qualities of each of them. Maybe that’s a question those who know me best should answer.

What would you order for your last meal?

I think I wouldn’t be too hungry knowing what was coming. But I am a pizza lover.

What can you not live without?

Another trick question! What do I think I can’t live without? My computer, my telephone, television, communication of all kinds.

Whom do you have on your iPod?

What’s the happiest memory of your life?

It’s hard to beat giving birth to three healthy children who are well and prosperous and contributing to society according to their special gifts.
