Former Astronaut & Senator John Herschel Glenn Jr. July 18, 1921 - December 8, 2016

Posted by: thepinetree on 12/08/2016 12:40 PM
Columbus, OH...John Herschel Glenn Jr. (July 18, 1921 – December 8, 2016), (Col, USMC, Ret.), was an aviator, engineer, astronaut, and United States senator. He was one of the "Mercury Seven" group of military test pilots selected in 1959 by NASA to become America's first astronauts and fly the Project Mercury spacecraft. On February 20, 1962, Glenn flew the Friendship 7 mission and became the first American to orbit the Earth and the fifth person in space, after cosmonauts Yuri Gagarin and Gherman Titov and the sub-orbital flights of Mercury astronauts Alan Shepard and Gus Grissom. Glenn is the earliest-born American to go to orbit, and the second earliest-born man overall after Soviet cosmonaut Georgy Beregovoy. Glenn received the Congressional Space Medal of Honor in 1978, and was inducted into the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame in 1990. With the death of Scott Carpenter on October 10, 2013, Glenn became the last surviving member of the Mercury Seven.

Sheriffs Uncover Burglary While Investigating Domestic Dispute

Posted by: News_Desk on 12/07/2016 05:01 PM
Groveland, CA...On Sunday afternoon just before 1 PM, Deputies responded to a residence on Elder Lane in Groveland for a report of an assault. A woman reported that her boyfriend, 29 year old Brice Johnson attacked her with a guitar and a bat. She stabbed him in self-defense and was worried that he may need medical attention. When Deputy Worthington arrived at the home, he noticed several windows and a glass patio table were broken. He knocked on the door several times and announced his presence. A man exited the home and identified himself as Brice Johnson. He had scratches on his face and blood running down the right side of his head, behind his ear. An ambulance was on the way to treat him but he advised the deputy he did not need an ambulance. The deputy notified Johnson that he had a warrant for his arrest in which he said he was aware. When Deputy Worthington asked Johnson if he lived at the residence and if it was his home, Johnson told him the home was given to him in a deed.

Elk Grove Man Honored For Helping Butte Fire Families

Posted by: News_Desk on 12/07/2016 10:34 AM
San Andreas, CA...When the Butte Fire ended, hundreds of people were left homeless. CCAR Charities Inc. began to receive offers of travel trailers that the owners were willing to donate, but frequently they were located several hundred miles from here and the need was for someone who could tow them to Mountain Ranch, especially since many of the trailers were fifth wheels, which require a pickup with the right hitch in the bed.

December 7th, 1941 "A Day Which Will Live In Infamy" FDR's Speech On Pearl Harbor Attack

Posted by: thepinetree on 12/07/2016 08:59 AM
Washington, DC...75 Years Ago today the Japanese Fleet conducted a surprise attack on our naval base in Pearl Harbor. In the attack which drew us into World War II, 2,403 Americans were killed and 1,178 others were wounded. Following is the full text of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's speech as delivered on December 8th. "Yesterday, December 7, 1941 - a date which will live in infamy - the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan. The United States was at peace with that nation and, at the solicitation of Japan, was still in conversation with its Government and its Emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific. Indeed, one hour after Japanese air squadrons had commenced bombing in Oahu, the Japanese Ambassador to the United States and his colleague delivered to the Secretary of State a formal reply to a recent American message. While this reply stated that it seemed useless to continue the existing diplomatic negotiations, it contained no threat or hint of war or armed attack.

Washington, DC...Today our prayers go out to the people of Oakland, California in the aftermath of this weekend's deadly warehouse fire – one of the worst fires in the state's history. While we still don't know the full toll of this disaster, we do know that an American community has been devastated, and many people – including young men and women with their whole futures ahead of them – have tragically lost their lives. I want to thank the dedicated first responders who have been working tirelessly for days to contain the situation, recover victims, and treat the wounded.
