Vandals strike North Peace Museum

first_imgSjoblom said that the RCMP have been notified about the break-ins, but that they told her there’s not much they can do without surveillance footage or eyewitness reports. She said that the break-ins could be attributed to homeless persons nearby. Sjoblom said that this isn’t the first time the museum has been the victim of a break-in, saying that the last occurrence took place several years ago.Anyone with information about the break-in is asked to call the Fort St. John RCMP or Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) 222-8477. FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — Officials with the North Peace Museum are shaking their heads after two of the museum’s heritage exhibit buildings were broken in to over the weekend. Museum Curator Heather Sjoblom said that staff became aware of the break-in, which occurred on Saturday or Sunday, early Monday morning. She said that at least one person broke into the Allan House, the museum’s newest building, by pulling off the piece of plywood covering the doorway of the house. Sjoblom said that luckily the house is currently being restored, and that the vandals did no damage to the house’s interior, which has yet to be restored. However, she said that vandals did punch or kick in a panel on the front door of the Paddy Carroll/Peck Cabin to open the door’s deadbolt. Once again, Sjoblom said that the interior of the home wasn’t damaged due to its exhibits being displayed behind a chainlink fence. But, she said that the home’s front door will need to be replaced at an estimated cost of between $200 and $400. last_img read more

US waitress fired after reporting a mother who was drinking and

first_imgSidi Ifni- A waitress in the United Sates was dismissed after she called the police to report a woman who was breastfeeding her baby and drinking alcohol.Jackie Conners, an Arkansas waitress, was dismissed after reporting to police a woman who was drinking while breastfeeding her 7 month old daughter.Jackie Conners, who worked at a Gusano’s Pizzeria, spotted 28-year-old Tasha Adams ordering alcoholic drinks and simultaneously breastfeeding her 7-month-old daughter. The mother’s actions are “unacceptable,” Conners was quoted by the Daily Mail as saying.“Me, being a mom, and just seeing something like that and seeing a baby that can’t speak for itself, having a parent do something like that is just unacceptable,” she added.According to the Daily Mail, police rushed to the bar and arrested Tasha Nicole Adams, who is mother of three.The 28 year-old woman was convicted of causing harm to a minor, and she is expected to appear in court in January.But the pizzeria immediately fired the waitress.“Conners’ termination had nothing to do with the breastfeeding incident,” a manager at the restaurant was quoted by ArkansasMatters as saying.But the waitress argues that she was fired because she “took matter into her own hands.”The mother claimed that she did not do anything wrong.“I am really a normal person,” she was quoted by the same source as saying.Pregnant mothers are warned against drinking consuming alcoholic drinks for fear of bringing about birth defects.Adams reiterated that she did not commit anything horrible and that her family is all that she cares about.“I just want everyone to know I am not a horrible person. I have a family to take care of, and that’s all I care about,” she said.© Morocco World News. All Rights Reserved. This material may not be published, rewritten or redistributed.last_img read more
