3 young girls busted by the police for selling lemonade without business license

Selling lemonades under the table, cash only, no business license.
Looks like they're not getting criminal convictions due to their ages though.

Aaron Hernandez officially charged with the murder of his friend

Former New England Patriot Hernandez charged with murder - CNN.com

Quote:
North Attleborough, Massachusetts (CNN) -- Authorities charged former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez with first-degree murder on Wednesday, hours after police arrested him and the NFL team that once gave him a $40 million contract dropped him from their roster.
Hernandez is accused in last week's shooting death of Odin Lloyd, whose body was found in an industrial park area less than a mile from Hernandez's home.
Hernandez "drove the victim to the remote spot, and then he orchestrated his execution," First Assistant District Attorney Bill McCauley said in court Wednesday.
"He orchestrated the crime from the beginning, he took steps to conceal and destroy evidence and he took steps to prevent the police from speaking to ... an important witness," the prosecutor said.
A judge ordered that Hernandez be held without bail.

Defense attorney Michael Fee had said that the evidence is circumstantial and that bail should be granted so that Hernandez can return home to spend time with his fiancee and 8-month-old child.
"It is a circumstantial case. It is not a strong case," Fee said, arguing that Hernandez was not a flight risk and had cooperated with authorities.
Lloyd's family tearfully watched during Wednesday's hearing. They did not speak to reporters after leaving the courthouse.
Hernandez, 23, wore a white T-shirt when he appeared in court. He stood beside his attorney, his hands cuffed.
After the court hearing, Fee said Hernandez is "doing fine."
A gag order issued during the hearing stopped attorneys from providing additional details afterward.
The Patriots released Hernandez Wednesday after he was arrested and booked at a police station in North Attleborough.
Prosecutor: Surveillance footage shows Hernandez with gun
After days of secrecy in the closely watched investigation, the prosecutor's comments in court provided the first detailed account of Lloyd's killing and the evidence detectives have uncovered.
A jogger found Lloyd's body, riddled with gunshot wounds, in a secluded area of an industrial park near Hernandez's house June 17, McCauley said.
Investigators later found five shell casings at the scene. Inside his pocket, McCauley said, they found a wallet and keys to a car that Hernandez had rented.
Around 2:30 a.m. that same day, the prosecutor said, Lloyd was last seen leaving his Boston home with Hernandez in a silver Nissan Altima.
Less than an hour later, surveillance cameras at the North Attleborough industrial park showed the vehicle heading toward the remote area where Lloyd's body was later found, McCauley said.
"The car goes down there at 3:22," McCauley said. "Four minutes later, the car is visible again. During the interval between 3:23 and 3:27, people who were working the overnight shift hear gunshots."
Minutes later, surveillance video from Hernandez's home security system shows the former NFL player arriving back at his house with two other people, according to the district attorney. Hernandez appears to be holding a firearm, McCauley said.
"The defendant goes walking through the house with the gun in his hand. That is captured in the video. ... And they all go down to the basement," McCauley said. "Once in the basement, the surveillance gets shut off."
McCauley said the gun Hernandez was carrying in the surveillance video has not been found.
Investigation continues
For the past several days, investigators have been searching the area near Hernandez's home as they have investigated Lloyd's death. Authorities Wednesday said the investigation was ongoing.
In addition to the first-degree murder charge, Hernandez faces five weapons-related charges, including carrying a firearm without a license.
It was unclear whether there had been any additional arrests in the case.
"One critical part of this case that we don't know anything about at this point is the two other men (Hernandez is) accused of being with," CNN senior legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said. "Were they shooters? Were they involved? Will they flip against Hernandez? They are obviously key figures in this, and we'll watch how that unfolds."
In court on Wednesday, the prosecutor described what he alleged was a tense conversation between Hernandez and Lloyd inside the Nissan Altima and described what Hernandez and his associates had done at the scene of the shooting. He did not reveal how investigators had learned that information.
Inside the car, according to McCauley, Hernandez told Lloyd he was mad because of Lloyd's behavior at a Boston club they had gone to together several days earlier.
"There were certain things that had happened during the night that he was upset about and now didn't trust the victim," McCauley said. "He told him one of the things he was made about. ... At the club the victim had spoken to a couple of people, and the defendant told him that he was upset about that because he had some troubles with those people."
Victim's family reacts
Lloyd's sister, Olivia Thibou, told CNN last week that her brother and Hernandez went to a Boston nightclub together a few days before Lloyd's death.
Her brother was dating the sister of Hernandez's fiancee, she said.
She said she didn't know of any problems between Hernandez and her brother, who worked for a landscaping company.
Before Wednesday's hearing, Thibou said she was glad to hear about Hernandez's arrest.
"God is great," she said. "It's the best news I've had since my brother was killed last week."
House searched again
Patriots drop Hernandez
The Patriots -- who gave Hernandez a five-year, $40 million contract last year -- released Hernandez from the team before the charges against him were made public Wednesday.
"Words cannot express the disappointment we feel knowing that one of our players was arrested as a result of this investigation," the team said in a statement.
The NFL released its own statement, calling the involvement of a player in the case "deeply troubling."
Both the NFL and Patriots expressed sympathy for the victim's family.
Hernandez's lawyer broke his silence Monday, saying his client has been subjected to "a relentless flood of rumors, misinformation and false reports," including unsubstantiated accounts in some media outlets late last week that an arrest warrant had been issued in connection with the investigation.
On Wednesday, about a half-dozen plainclothes police officers went to Hernandez's house and then led him out in handcuffs. He was wearing a white T-shirt and shorts.
Death inquiry, silence from player and cops
Sheriff: Gang unit will investigate Hernandez's tattoos
Bristol County Sheriff Tom Hodgson said he expects life behind bars will be a major adjustment for the former NFL star.
Wednesday night's dinner at the Dartmouth House of Correction was chop suey green beans and a slice of bread, the sheriff said. Hernandez will only be allowed out of his one-person cell for showers and phone calls. Authorities will perform background checks on any visitors.
Hodgson said he met with Hernandez "as soon as he came in" to the facility and told him he'd receive no special treatment.
Asked how Hernandez responded, Hodgson said, "he did not seem nervous," adding he was "polite and respectful."
Hernandez is currently being held in the jail's medical unit while he undergoes further screening, including mental health, physical and security tests.
As part of the security screening, authorities will determine whether he has any gang affiliations.
"He had tattoos that our gang unit would be looking at ... to see if he's involved in any kind of gang," Hodgson said. "Doesn't mean he is."
The tattoos raise suspicion, the sheriff said, and investigators will follow up with interviews to further determine the significance of what they saw.
"He'll be treated no better and no worse than any other inmate," the sheriff said.

Rant.

Dumbass city planners. Do you seriously need greenspace for these medians?
Oh yeah, "let's not maintain it regularly, let it overgrow, then finally do it"

Dumbest idea ever thought of. This is not only hazard for drivers but a nusiance when the city gardeners have to block off both left lanes, to cut it down.

So this involves...more city employees ($$$), more accidents ($$$) - to add some green space between opposing traffic? Dumbass.

The idiot behind this should get a boot in the ass.

And now the viaduct might be gone....added unnecessary expense. To add insult, isn't the burrard street bridge going to be reduced by a lane each for cyclists/walking traffic?

TIA

So you just want to wander around Costco to see whats there and prices? Just tell the front gate person, you are going to the pharmacy, then just wander around. You don't need a membership for their pharmacy. IMO Costco membership is totally worth it, but I buy quite a bit of food in bulk, even living alone, I eat a lot, especially with my crazy gym schedule. They also have a lot of interesting products I won't find at save-on/safeway/etc...

I get all my meat there and freeze it. Ziplock bags in bulk too.



Also: Today I was downtown to pick up my kilt for a wedding (House of McLaren, $220 for the whole kilt and kaboodle, $30 off if you have your own shoes, same for the shirt) and I parked at the easypark just across the street. Went to pay after coming out of the kilt shop and discovered that since I'd only been there for like...15 minutes, they didn't charge me.

Score! +1 for easypark!

Yea I believe its something to do with how pharmacists aren't allowed to discriminate based on membership who they provide services to, so thats why you don't need a membership to use their pharmacy for prescriptions, apparently a lot of people do this because Costco has really low dispensing fees and generic drugs.

A 2 person household should be able to make a membership worth it, unless you two eat like rabbits and provided you have the cabinet/storage space for bulk stuff at home. Besides food, I also buy household cleaning supplies, toliet paper, vitamins, contact solution in bulk.

Another way you can do it is to have someone with a membership buy you a $5 Costco gift card, then you'd be able to enter no problem.

Costco isn't only good for bulk food, theres tons of things for around the house, garden, even clothing. It's just me and my wife, and we make plenty good use out of our membership.

We do have decent sized pantry...I'm veg, so our meat and dairy consumption isn't super high but for some reason I wasn't thinking about toilet paper, paper towels, etc. Same with office supplies now that I think about it.

Yeah, now I'm sold. Thanks again for the input
