Warden Service spokesman John MacDonald said 33-year-old Ian MacDonnell jumped from a stopped motorboat to retrieve a water bottle that had fallen overboard. Most of Donnell Pond is located in Township 9, south of Route 182, and part of it is in Franklin. MacDonald said MacDonnell was traveling with four other people, two men, a woman and a girl, in a 16-foot Bayliner motorboat. Friends reportedly said that MacDonnell was not a strong swimmer. They reportedly threw a rope out to MacDonnell, but he was unable to hold on. He is presumed to have drowned. Authorities were notified just after 5:30 p.m. Sunday. Wardens responded to the lake along with members of the Hancock and Franklin fire departments. A search for MacDonnell began when authorities arrived on scene and continued until dark, according to MacDonald.

Police investigate reported EBT fraud

If you have a knack for quirky gadgets for your kitchen and home, like beautifully designed toilet plungers and top-notch martini shakers, you've got to shop 14th Street's funky home goods store with the so-Washington name of Home Rule. Greg Link opened the store with the intentions of keeping the name local while also reflecting the functionality and everyday nature of the store's merchandise. Originally Link was planning on calling the store DC Basics, but because the name was too similar to Basics Cafe on U Street, he sought out an alternative. While driving home from Charlottesville one afternoon, he was struck with a great idea to title his shop based on a pun on the 1973 congressional act. D.C. locals understood the name Home Rule, but Link couldn't help but laugh at how his non-resident family members didn't quite get it. About a year after the store opened, someone came in with an old bottle of vitamins with a Home Rule label on it, and informed him of a health food store in Adams Morgan with the same name.

"This meant that external hardware such as a button on a wheelchair headrest, a sip-puff tube or a blink detector could be hooked up to it," he says. "Exactly the same technology that Stephen Hawking uses. So what I was seeing was video footage of very young, profoundly disabled children who not too long ago would just have been lying there being cared for, now independently laughing, playing, doing the same things as their classmates. "Despite having close family with disabilities, I assumed that accessibility is a wasted effort." "The lives they would lead would be so different to even just one generation [before], all thanks to some relatively small advances in technology." Hamilton pushed to be more involved in projects for profoundly disabled people, and he looked to the more mature field of web accessibility for principles of openness and best practice that could be applied in game design. "I soon discovered that the vast majority particularly the things that benefit the largest numbers of people are easy," he says. "If thought about early enough, they are cheap, and through analytics and metrics I saw that they were used by large numbers of people, disabled and otherwise." He gradually moved further into the BBC's accessibility division while continuing to work on its children's games and websites, but he was frustrated at seeing developers consistently making trivial decisions over things like color and typography that excluded large swathes of players. Hamilton left the BBC in August 2011 with the intention of focusing on games accessibility as a career. He planned to fix these problems full time. Becoming an accessibility specialist is a standard career path in many other industries, he says, such as web, tourism, construction and town planning.

If I were to single one out, it would be the Sonoran Dogs only because I stumbled across them playing offstage in a jam session for what would grow to be only a couple of handfuls of people, myself included. As we sat around them, literally just a few feet away, they told us about their band and entertained us with their music. Summergrass Bluegrass Music Festival At the museum are farm buggies, vintage cars and trucks, and massive old harvesters. One of those, even though it looks old and completely worn out from decades of hard use and prolonged exposure to the elements, is in fact a brand new 1953 Harris Hillside Harvester partially wrapped in oiled paper packing. I was told that it was one of two that were purchased for use on a farm, and that shortly afterwards the purchaser passed away and it was never used. Several of the antique tractors are used to pull wagonloads full of visitors around the Carlsbad flower fields. Museum staff operate and maintain them. Also, there were several of the museums tractors on display in the agriculture area of the infield at this years San Diego County Fair. The steam engines on display date all the way back to the 1860s.

Ellsworth police received a report of suspicious activity near Shaws on High Street around 7:40 p.m. on Aug. 27. Officer Chad Wilmot responded, located a man and found that he was fraudulently using his EBT card, according to a police report. Lt. Harold Page said the man was emptying bottles of water, in order to then return the bottles and use the cash from the bottle deposit for other products. Page said police will forward their findings to an investigator with the Department of Health and Human Services. That agency likely would issue any potential charges, according to Page.
