HASTINGS, MI — An organized protest against Barry County Sheriff Dar Leaf may have been canceled over safety concerns, but that didn’t stop residents from showing up to show support or denounce the sheriff.

Individuals and crowds of people began to gather more than an hour before Tuesday morning’s Barry County Board of Commissioners meeting to express their views on the sheriff and, if space allowed, get inside the meeting to voice their opinions.

Leaf came under fire for having shared the stage at a Grand Rapids rally in May with militia members, including one who’s since been arrested for the alleged governor-kidnapping plot, and for controversial comments he made after the arrests last week.

With capacity limits maxed out indoors due to social distancing protocols, some 40 people listened from speakers outside the community foundation center as public comment was given Oct. 13.

More spoke in favor of the sheriff than against, as nearly a dozen individuals praised his constitutionality, loyalty and dedication to the community, many doing so to much applause.

Leaf supporter Joel Ibbotson said he knew many people who vehemently oppose Leaf’s personal politics, but publicly advocate for him as sheriff.

“Simply put, his personal politics do not get in the way of his public duty to the Constitution of the United States,” Ibbotson said. “He was elected constitutionality by we the people and has run the office in a way to serve the people not to arrest them.”

Olivia Bennett, who organized the protest against Leaf, asked commissioners to pass a resolution asking for Leaf’s resignation.

Bennett, who is transgender, spoke using her legal name, Cody Hayes.

“Unlike others in my county, I believe safety to be of the utmost importance,” she

WAUKESHA, WI— Waukesha County Board of Supervisor’s Finance Committee will hold a public hearing on the 2021 budget at 8:15 a.m. Wednesday. The public hearing will be held in the County Board committee room which is located at 515 W Moreland Blvd Room AC130, according to a news release.

If the public cannot attend the hearing, they are encouraged to submit comments on the budget by emailing: [email protected] Comments received will be distributed to the County Board of Supervisors.

County Board Supervisors have until November 4 to propose amendments to the budget. The budget is adopted at the board’s November 10 meeting.

If the Waukesha County 2021 budget is approved, the tax rate will drop to the lowest level since 2009.

Waukesha County Executive Paul Farrow announced his 2021 executive budget to the Waukesha County Board of Supervisors in late September.

The budget invests in public safety and economic development while falling under the state levy cap and cutting the county tax rate for the seventh consecutive year. The Board of Supervisors is expected to pass the final budget in November, according to a news release.

“Our history of conservative budget practices and AAA bond rating has allowed us to weather the COVID-19 storm with little change to revenue,” Farrow said in a previous news release. “This budget supports Waukesha County’s goals of creating a safe, economically vibrant community for residents while keeping taxes low. More than half of new tax levy will go toward public safety. Infrastructure projects geared toward long-term safety, efficiency and economic development are also heavily supported.”

If the budget is passed as-is, the tax rate will drop from $1.82 to $1.76 per thousand dollars of home value, the lowest since 2009.

The 2021 budget allocates a large portion to public safety, including $600,000 in new

History is littered with women brought undone by the actions of men, women who have seen their lives upended when their partners behaved like scoundrels.

But Gladys Berejiklian?

Will she become the third premier of New South Wales whose career is ended by events before the Independent Commission Against Corruption?

It seems likely.

The revelations of Berejiklian’s “close personal relationship” with the former MP for Wagga Daryl Maguire, who is before the commission over allegations of corrupt conduct, have come as a bombshell.

Even more astounding is that the relationship, begun in 2015, continued until August this year. This was after Berejiklian sacked Maguire from the Liberal party, forced him to sit on the crossbench and prevailed on others to get him to resign as the member for Wagga Wagga.

The allegations against Maguire are in the public domain and in substantial detail.

In her press conference on Monday after giving evidence to the commission, Berejiklian said she continued the friendship because Maguire was in “a very dark place” and he had lost everything. She is appealing to the desire of all of us to support friends.

But she is the premier, and she sets the standards of her government.

Among the conduct under investigation is whether Maguire ran a business, G8way, out of his parliamentary office, offered visa services to Chinese business partners and was involved in paid lobbying for various landholders, including one at Badgerys Creek, the site of Sydney’s second airport.

Over several hours on Wednesday Berejiklian, a notoriously private person, had her personal life laid bare, as the counsel assisting, Scott Robertson, played telephone intercepts of her personal calls with Maguire during 2017 and 2018.

Berejiklian is single. Maguire is now separated. This is not a question of morality. It is one of judgment: whether Berejiklian

(Reuters) – Boston Red Sox owner John Henry is in talks with RedBall Acquisition Corp to take his famed sports holding company Fenway Sports Group LLC public, a person familiar with the matter told Reuters late on Friday.

The deal being discussed would merge Fenway Sports Group with RedBall Acquisition Corp and will value the owner of the Liverpool Football Club at around $8 billion including debt, the source said, asking not to be identified.

The talks were reported earlier by the Wall Street Journal newspaper, which said the discussions are in the early stage and could still fall apart.

The newspaper also said RedBall, which raised $575 million in August to buy businesses in sports and sports-related media and data analytics, plans to raise an additional $1 billion to buy a stake in Fenway Sports Group that will not exceed 25%.

RedBall, a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC), is co-chaired by former Goldman Sachs banker Gerald Cardinale and baseball executive Billy Beane, who shot to fame with Michael Lewis’s book “Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game.”
