HAMMOND RaeAnn Mills bobbed a brush in a bottle of nail polish the color of a Barbie doll box. She took her sister’s hand and smoothed a thin layer of “pink forever” over each nail.

Mills is 70. Her sister Sue Ellen Chalifoux is 67.

It was the first time they bonded over painting nails, a moment sisters usually share as teens. But the women never had the chance. They were 7 and 4 when life pulled them apart, and they say their reunion at Chalifoux’s Hessville home last month was only their second interaction since they were children.

A picture that made its way into newspapers in 1948 tells a piece of their story. In the image, four small children sit huddled on steps outside a home in Chicago, behind a sign that reads “4 Children For Sale Inquire Within.” Their mother pregnant at the time and wearing a floral dress turns her head and shields her face from the camera. Mills and Chalifoux are two of the girls in the picture.

One weekend in early May, Mills and her son Lance Gray traveled from their home in Washington, Ind., near Vincennes, to visit Chalifoux at the Hessville home she shares with her son, Timothy Charnote. They arrived with dozens of old photos and trinkets, fodder for storytelling.

“It’s one of the happiest days of my life,” Mills said.

The reunion was bittersweet, as Mills figured it would be her last time with Chalifoux. Chalifoux is dying from lung disease. She cannot swallow food or talk. She has spent all of June hospitalized and is on a ventilator.

Before she dies, she wants people to know the story behind the photo, Charnote said.

When Charnote was a child and acted up, his mother would warn him to be good or she would sell him, just like her mother sold her. He thought she was being facetious. Then he saw the photo.

It was published in The Vidette Messenger of Valparaiso on Aug. 5, 1948, with the caption,
ugg coquette slippers off siblings shown in old photo tell their stories
“A big “For Sale” sign in a Chicago yard mutely tells the tragic story of Mr. and Mrs. Ray Chalifoux, who face eviction from their apartment. With no place to turn, the jobless coal truck driver and his wife decide to sell their four children. Mrs. Lucille Chalifoux turns her head from camera above while her children stare wonderingly. On the top step are Lana, 6, and Rae, 5. Below are Milton, 4, and Sue Ellen, 2.”

No one knows how long the sign stood in the yard, whether it was long enough for the camera shutter to close or whether it was years. Some family members claim the mother was paid to stage the photo.

The photo was also published in newspapers in Ohio, Wisconsin, Michigan, New York, Pennsylvania, Iowa and Texas, among others, said Linda Herrick Swisher, public information coordinator for the Hammond Public Library. A story several days later in the Chicago Heights Star stated a Chicago Heights woman offered to open her home to the children and that offers of jobs, homes and financial assistance poured in.

Two years after it appeared, the children went in different directions.

Mills’ birth certificate shows she was born at her mother’s residence near 91st Street and South Commercial Avenue in South Chicago. She still has the brown and white checkered dress she wore and the torn green corduroy pants Milton Chalifoux wore the day they went to live with John and Ruth Zoeteman on their farm in DeMotte.

It was Aug. 27, 1950, and Mills claims she was sold for $2 so her mother could have bingo money and because the man her mother was dating did not want anything to do with the children.

Her brother was crying nearby, so the couple took him, too, Mills said.

She has no documents to prove she was sold and no adoption papers to prove she was adopted.

However, school yearbook pictures from DeMotte and later family obituaries support her claim that the couple changed RaeAnn’s name to Beverly Zoeteman and Milton’s name to Kenneth Zoeteman.

With the help of her son, Mills has been using social media to reconnect with siblings and build new connections with extended kin.

“I want to find family before I die,” she said.

During that search, the photo surfaced. “My brother (Milton Chalifoux) in Tucson somehow sent it to my email,” she said. “I got on there and said, ‘Good God. That’s me.'”

She doesn’t remember the picture being taken and has no recollection of her birth father. She said the Zoetemans raised her in an abusive, loveless home.

“They used to chain us up all the time,” she said. “When I was a little child, we were field workers,” she said.

Mills said when she was in her late teens, she was kidnapped, raped and got pregnant. She was sent to Michigan to a home for unwed mothers and brought the baby girl back to DeMotte, but the baby was taken from her and adopted.

“At 17, I left home and I never looked back,” Mills said.

She deals with health problems now but focuses on the blessings, such as being thankful for the family she has and connecting with family she never knew.

uk ugg boots of when Trust will reopen the doors

Lancashire Teaching Hospitals Trust announced from Monday 18 April all A patients would be transferred to Royal Preston Hospital.

Wait times at A in Preston have increased and councillors have called for a definite timescale over when Chorley A will reopen.

The Trust said it had no choice but to close the department due to a lack of qualified doctors. It has put in place an care unit which it says can treat most cases, with serious incident patients transferred to Preston.

Lancashire County Council and Preston City Council released the statement below following an emergency meeting with the Trust on Friday (April 22) lunchtime.

They said: “We are extremely concerned by the on going closure of the A department at Chorley and South Ribble Hospital and are pressing for it to be re opened as soon as qualified doctors can be recruited.

“We want to see a clear action plan detailing what will be done to re open the department and a more definite timescale for when this will be done, and would call on the government to ensure that there is a supply of qualified doctors available.

“We also want answers to the questions many people are asking about what the future holds for both Chorley and South Ribble and Preston hospitals.

“If there is any consideration being given to closing the A service at the Chorley site permanently then it is important the Lancashire Teaching Hospitals Trust is upfront and outlines their plans for what the future could hold so we, and our residents, can provide our input.

Probably more than any other biennial, the 2018 Portland Museum of Art Biennial that opens Friday reflects our times and the chaos of the world.

Guest curator Nat May accepted the museum invitation and challenge to assemble the biennial with the idea that he would have the freedom and ability to choose work by artists who are thinking about a world that is much bigger than Portland and much wider than Maine. He was interested in representing diverse perspectives and putting a spotlight on artists he believes deserve the attention.

As he began his work,
toddler uggs uk of things worth our attention
May was struck by how different this approach was when he read about some of the distant past biennials at the museum that involved three person juries tasked with reviewing thousands of submissions and choosing a few dozen to represent the current state of contemporary art in Maine.

May rejected that approach out of hand. He found that process somewhat arbitrary and cluttered with impossibilities.

ugg boots uk kids of sitting out against former team

Of the three games he has been benched for, Wednesday night against the New York Islanders was no doubt the roughest on Matt Martin.

Shifted to the press box when coach Mike Babcock thought more flash than physicality was needed in Toronto lineup, Martin has seen the Leafs win twice without him and had to miss a game against his old team, the Isles. Martin, who was kept out with Toronto black aces after an optional practice shouted out some greetings as the Isles readied for their optional skate at the Air Canada Centre.

Martin might also miss Toronto game on Thursday in New York against the Rangers, the Isles most biter rivals, all of which Babcock took into consideration.

question, Babcock said when asked if his decision has gutted the proud Martin. and I talked about (sitting) the first day after the break. Everybody on the team wants to feel important. No matter what you say (as coach), they get rewarded with ice time, period. The rest is lip service. It still stings. Marty was a big part of that team, a big part of ours, but he not playing tonight. That the reality. When we sat down, he had an opportunity to talk and so did I. silver lining for Martin, whose role is largely to ride shotgun for the Leafs youngsters in case of rough stuff, might be to look at Dominic Moore experience. He was another veteran who stewed while Frederik Gauthier replaced him as fourth line centre, but ultimately Gauthier was demoted. Kapanen is a much more accomplished player, however opportunities to get back through injury or other circumstances often come unexpectedly.


February is here and with it,
real uggs on sale of sitting out against former team
the looming NHL trade deadline on the 26th.

Most people expect the Leafs to add a depth defenceman or forward or both, with their playoff aspirations much higher after last spring good stab at upsetting the Washington Capitals in the first round. Babcock hinted all around at his team having a strong finishing kick in its final 31 games to make general manager Lou Lamoriello pull the trigger. Last year, Lamoriello the young team with the low risk acquisition of centre Brian Boyle.

our job as a team to put as much pressure on Lou to help us, Babcock said. only was you do that is by playing, you don do that by talking. The more you look like you have a chance, the more opportunity you have for your general manager to help you. You can always use help, never been a team that didn need more. FARM CALL UP

As the Leafs prepared to depart for their Fathers trip, Mitch Marner was trying to come up with someone to take.

The well meaning Marner used his option to select another male relative who had been influential in his career, older brother Christopher. Unfortunately, the latter came down with mononucleosis the past few days and couldn be allowed to come into contact with the players.

As Christopher could not be in contact with Leafs players, Mitch hoped his dad, Paul, could make it again, but the latter could not get the time of work on short notice. The Marlies reached the AHL all star break leading the league with a record of 32 11 0.

watching games when I can, Babcock said. year hasn been as (convenient), but we watch on TV and their games are on in our room all the time. I talk to (coach Sheldon Keefe) and (GM Kyle Dubas) all the time and get a read on their players. Then we talk to our skills people who work with them all the time. I had an official breakdown again yesterday on everyone on their team.

don want to bring them up before they ready and usually when you do, they have to go down two or three times before they become an NHL player. Everyone tells you how great they are down there and they come up and they not that great. There is a big difference between speed and size and they have to figure out the link.

waterproof uggs uk of North Vancouver businesses considering leaving

genuine cheap ugg boots of North Vancouver businesses considering leaving

More than three quarters of respondents said they have employees who commute to the North Shore for work. But the same percentage said it is getting harder to retain staff because they are getting fed up with the drive or transit ride in.

“How can we ask people to work for our company when it takes them two hours to commute here?” one of the respondents wrote.

Goods movement is also an issue for 54 per cent of respondents. One business owner said couriers have come to refer to North Van as the “seventh circle of hell.”

Although 77 per cent of business owners said it was either unlikely or very unlikely that they’d consider closing because of transportation challenges, 40 per cent said they would consider relocating outside of North Vancouver.

One of those considering leaving town is Hatfield Consultants, which employs 70 scientists in the Harbourside neighbourhood. The company recently lost a couple long time staff due to their commute from the more eastern suburbs, said Martin Davies, Hatfield’s senior vice president in an email.

“Especially after the tolls were lifted from the Port Mann bridge,” Davies said. “They would like to live on the North Shore, but even with good jobs it is no longer within their means to do so.”

Other employers with better access to transit will have an easier time scooping them up, Davies added.

“Because the transit connections are so poor from the eastern suburbs to the North Shore, especially connections from SkyTrain lines, knowledge businesses like ours are at a clear disadvantage to firms in Vancouver, Burnaby, Richmond and Coquitlam, where rapid transit options exist,” he said. “Although we were founded on the North Shore and have always been here, we may need to move our office off the North Shore when our current lease is up if transit options and traffic do not improve.”

Reactions like that are distressing but not surprising, said Patrick Stafford Smith, CEO for the chamber.

“We’ve heard over the last three years through our discussions with business that transportation is the No. 1 economic issue,” he said. “I certainly think that affordability of housing, jobs and transportation are all linked together, so it’s a game of Whac A Mole trying to deal with each individually. I would expect a lot of this is not going to get better until we have a transportation solution that can allow North Vancouver to integrate with the rest of Metro Vancouver.”

The 2016 census found 41.4 per cent of the North Shore’s commuters come from elsewhere in the region a nine per cent spike since the last census.

Other employers don’t have a choice to leave. Liz Barnett, executive director of the North Shore Disability Resource Society, said she has a hard time keeping residential care workers. Of a staff of 220, only 50 employees live here.

“They could work here, and we’re great employers, but for the same amount of money and similar work,
waterproof uggs uk of North Vancouver businesses considering leaving
they can work in Vancouver, Surrey, Langley,” she said. “Eventually they leave.”

The chamber is now calling for senior levels of government to come together and establish a rapid transit link that connects the North Shore to the rest of the Lower Mainland.

“That allows the best people to be working at the jobs they want to but also employers to have access to the pool of talent that’s out there.”

The good news is, one small but important step has already been taken, Stafford Smith said, with the launch of the Integrated North Shore Transportation Planning Project. North Vancouver Lonsdale NDP MLA Bowinn Ma is spearheading the project to bring together all three municipalities, the province, the federal government at both a political and staff level, as well as TransLink to get everyone working in step.

One of the items on the agenda is a study into a “multi modal Burrard Inlet crossing” a fixed rail link over the Second Narrows. City of North Vancouver Mayor Darrell Mussatto began raising the North Shore SkyTrain issue last year, as did North Vancouver Seymour Liberal MLA Jane Thornthwaite.

That’s going to take investment from taxpayers, Stafford Smith acknowledged, and lots of it. But he said, after 30 years of coasting, it’s time.

“We need the population to realize this will be the legacy of our generation. So far we’ve been living off the investments of previous generations and we need to accept the fact that this needs to be paid for,” he said.

Our current clag ups also throttle the efficiency of the port, which has knock on effects throughout the whole Canadian economy, Stafford Smith added.

And for those waiting with baited breath to see if a fabled “third crossing” for drivers to get downtown is on the business community’s wish list, it’s not.

“I don’t believe that building roads is going to build us out of this problem. When you build more roads, especially the likes of a bridge, all the surrounding road infrastructure is impacted too. I believe that’s just a domino effect to more problems,” he said.

Though we all certainly know the frustration of trying to commute now, Stafford Smith is warning about the longer term impacts.

“The big thing for me is that businesses in North Vancouver need to be able to plan their investments and right now, they see no future,” he said. “We’ll be left with the businesses that can’t move and a bunch of low paying jobs,
waterproof uggs uk of North Vancouver businesses considering leaving
service jobs that don’t provide the rich economy and rich diversity of services that we’ve got right now.”

Settje, who police have not yet located, is wanted for three outstanding warrants including felony assault, theft, and failure to appear in court.

Tarkington said the incidents on Jan. 13, the night Brown was killed, began when he heard yelling and banging on the garage door of his home.

Outside, Tarkington claims, was Brown’s girlfriend, who claimed Tarkington had called her, saying he wanted to “beat her up.” He says he tried to get her to leave but she refused.

From there, Tarkington says one of his roommates came outside and got into a fight with Brown’s girlfriend. After the fight, he says they went back inside and heard a loud sound.

“About five minutes later, there’s a big bang, like somebody took a shot, like somebody shot my garage door,” Tarkington said.

Tarkington said they called 911, and soon after, someone started pounding on the front door and smashing their windows. He then says he heard Brown yelling for them to come outside.

According to Tarkington, he and Brown used to be friends, but weren’t very close in recent years. He said he didn’t know why Brown’s girlfriend came to his home that night.

Once Brown started banging the front door and shouting, Tarkington claims, his roommate Aarron Settje woke up and came downstairs holding a gun. He then allegedly called out to those behind the front door.

“Aarron said, ‘Stop kicking the door, I have a gun.’ He said that same phrase four times, and [Brown] kept kicking the door,” Tarkington said.

“I said, ‘Aarron, if that door flies open, there’s no telling what they’re going to do.’ So, Aarron said, ‘If that door flies open, I’m opening fire.’ I said, ‘Hey, do what you gotta do.'”

Tarkington said Settje told Brown one more time to get away from the door, or else he would shoot, and Brown responded by saying “f you” and kicking the door again.

After that, according to Tarkington, Settje shot four times through the front door. Tarkington said they opened the door and saw Brown, his girlfriend, and another man who was with them fleeing from the front door. Settje then fired another three rounds into the air, Tarkington said.

Tarkington fled the scene, because he said he has an outstanding warrant and did not want to be associated with the shooting. He said he doesn’t know what happened next.

“I have no idea what Aarron did with the gun, I don’t know where he went, I just saw me getting the hell away from here,” Tarkington said.

On Tuesday morning, Tarkington told KTUU that he planned to turn himself in for the outstanding warrant and tell police what he says happened on the night that Brown was killed. He was arrested hours later.

According to Detective Ross Henikman with the Anchorage Police Department, who is working on this case, Tarkington refused to surrender.

“I spoke with [Tarkington] today, and offered a number of ways for him to turn himself in, but as of this morning he declined those options,” Henikman said Tuesday afternoon.

Henikman said that APD is still working on investigating the case, but that the investigation may take some more time, as “a lot of people don’t tell the truth.”

Henikman said that because he spoke with Tarkington and not Settje, they “only have one side of the story.”

Henikman could not comment on confidential information to the case, but did say that only the two men were being sought as “persons of interest,” and not either of Tarkington’s female roommates, or Brown’s girlfriend.

Nora Morse, a spokesperson with APD, said, “Investigators believe they may have information about what happened that evening.”

Police are still looking to talk to Settje, and waiting for him to turn himself in. In a written statement Tuesday night, police said Tarkington was remanded on existing warrants after being located by APD.

At one time, as many as 11 members of the Waite family worked at the Elmira Correctional Facility.

Standing out in this long line of corrections officers was COD, or Corrections Officer Dan Waite.

Daniel G. Waite Sr., known to friends and family simply as Danny, ran thecenter gate, a security checkpoint where all of the facility’s traffic funneled through.

“He was the man you had to go to to get through the gate and you better have your ducks all in a row, or you weren’t going to get through that gate,” said Jim Waite, Danny’s nephew and fellow corrections officer.

Danny died on July 29. And of those 12 siblings, he was included in one of two sets of twins.

Family reunions at the Elmira Correctional Facility Clubhousewere huge, with Danny’s daughter Patti Paulo estimating 200 people in attendance.

“It was the best time,” Paulo said.

Danny Waite died on July 29. (Photo: Provided.)

Danny ran the family reunions, cooking and coordinating games such as softball and golf. And he didn’t let any bad behaviorslide with his nieces and nephews.

“If you got out of line, he’d grab you by the ankles and dunk you in the tub of ice water where the soda pop was,” said Jim. “And he did that to probably 20 of the kids if they wouldn’t behave.”

And Danny had three kids of his own, two daughters and a son.

“He was strict, but with good reason,” saidPaulo.

Summers werespent camping, where Danny taught his children to fish. Danny took his children to visit his twin brother, Donald Waite, in Boston each summer.

There is now one remaining Waite sibling,

William Waite of Horseheads.

A long line of corrections officersIn the 1950s, Danny began working for the Elmira Correctional Facility along with his brother, Elmer.

Elmer’s son, Jim, began working with his father and uncle in 1971.

But the Waite clan didn’t stop there. As many as 11 Waites worked in the facility, with jobs ranging from secretaries, to laundry workers and corrections officers.

“But Dan was, by far, probably the most prominent leader of his officers that they had out of the Waite family,” Jim said.

Despite being told he was too old to attend, Danny went to FBI School for defensive tactics in Albany when he was in his 40s.

“And he went there and he came out number one in his class,” Jim said.

When Danny returned, hetaught Physical Training and Defensive Tactics class.

At the Elmira Correctional Facility, Danny worked at thecenter gatethat inmates traveled through to get to their their housing, recreation, shops, school and the hospital. All of the traffic in the facility was funneled through center gate, which served as a security checkpoint complete with a metal detector andfrisking.

“He was a very strong, well organized leader of that area,” Jim said.

At one point, Dan turned down a joboffer for a sergeant position so he could stay at the center gate.
