Judge orders Seminole Commission candidate Pernell Bush to repair damage to home

A judge ordered Seminole County Commission candidate Pernell Bush to move out of the home he shared with his estranged wife and pay for the damages he caused last month when he punched a wall 10 times, apparently in anger over earlier divorce proceedings.

Seminole County Judge Jessica Recksiedler also ordered the Democrat and his estranged wife, Jalyn Isley, to sell their two-story house on Emerald Forest Court near Sanford.

But Bush said Monday that he moved out of the home the day after the Sept. 14 incident and has since been living in Sanford’s Goldsboro community.

His new address is within commission District 5 — the seat he is seeking — which includes Sanford, Heathrow and a portion of Lake Mary. Seminole commissioners are elected countywide, but required

Dodgers didn’t want Astros using home clubhouse, glad A’s got top seed

Dodgers didn’t want Astros using home clubhouse in ALDS vs. A’s originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

MLB’s unprecedented season during the coronavirus pandemic ends with a playoff schedule where teams play at neutral sites across the country. 

The AL Divisional Series between the A’s and Houston Astros began Monday in Los Angeles at Dodger Stadium, with any home-field advantage in the best-of-five series extending only to the order in which the teams would pat.

However, when it came to where the Astros would have their lockers, the Dodgers didn’t want them placing their stuff in the home clubhouse.

The San Francisco Chronicle’s Susan Slusser spoke to a Dodgers employee on Sunday who made it very clear they were happy the A’s were the higher seed, forcing the Astros to use the visiting clubhouse.

“Yeah, we definitely didn’t want Houston in our clubhouse,” the employee told Slusser.

Kitchen Design Ideas That Are Chic And Functional – Kitchen Decor Ideas

Photographed by Ashley Batz.

There are plenty of design trends that are gorgeous, modern, and memorable — but do they actually meet your everyday needs? In our opinion, if you’re going to renovate and redecorate, the finished result should suit you aesthetically and practically, especially when you’re talking about the heart of the home. That’s why we think the best kitchen design ideas prioritize functionality above all else. 

Keep in mind: That doesn’t mean you have to put style on the back burner (no pun intended). It just means that whatever you decide to do, you should do it with consideration to your lifestyle. Do you have a big family that always ends up gathering in the kitchen? Do you like to spread out your tools and ingredients and cook in a wide-open space? Are you generally pretty clean and organized, or could you use some help in that department?

Back in the early days, simply surviving from March to the end of the school year was a feat all its own — so parents

18 Gift Card Ideas for Everyone in 2020

best gift card ideas to give 2020

khadija horton

Somewhere along the line, gift certificates earned a reputation—one they absolutely do not deserve, IMHO—for being lame gifts. I mean, think about it! If you had a choice between getting a weird present that you’ll inevitably regift or a money voucher to all your favorite places, you’d choose the money every time, right? Sure, shopping for a gift card takes minimal effort or creativity, but I argue that’s not a bad thing. Shopping for gift certificates takes all of two seconds, and you know the recipient is definitely gonna like it (you know, because they can buy p much anything?!). No time or money wasted.

But before you go off and stock up on a bunch of the same gift cards to give every person in your life, consider giving it a slightly more personal touch. Your dad most definitely shops at different places than your teenage sister,

Dr Saman Mir Sacharvi and Vian Mangrio, 14, were discovered at their home in Reedley in Burnley, Lancashire, by police on Thursday morning.

Two local men, aged 51 and 56, have been arrested on suspicion of murder, two counts of rape and one of arson with intent to endanger life.

A postmortem examination showed Sacharvi died from pressure to her neck and had been assaulted. Tests have shown her daughter, who was a pupil at Marsden Heights school in Nelson, was badly burned but the cause of her death is yet to be determined.

Emery Center renovation underway as The Children’s Theatre plots purchase of historic concert hall

CINCINNATI — Construction on The Emery Center, one of downtown Cincinnati’s most historic buildings, could start in 2021. The Emery Center, which sits on Central Parkway between Walnut and Clay Streets, is currently made up of 59 apartments, Coffee Emporium, office space, and a long-dormant theater.

The apartments will be renovated in phases starting in January, but the theater’s $30 million renovation will take longer by up to the three and a half years, according to The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati.

“In real estate, we call it ‘bricks and mortar,’ said the building’s new co-owner, Chris Frutkin. “Well, there’s a lot of bricks and mortar in this building. It just goes on and on and on, [there are] whole rooms we had no idea existed.”

Still a Lot of Workers at Home

This does not include those who were already working from home before the pandemic. Estimates of the size of this group range from the 5.7% of U.S. workers who said they worked at home when the Census Bureau asked them about commuting patterns in 2019 to the upwards of 20% who have reported working at home at least some of the time in recent years in two BLS surveys. Yet another survey, conducted in April, found that 14.6% of employed persons
