Mayor Bernero Issues Statement on President Obama's Plan to Reduce Gun Violence


Mayor Bernero Issues Statement on President Obama’s Plan to Reduce Gun Violence

 

(WASHINGTON D.C.) – Mayor Virg Bernero issued the following statement regarding President Obama’s plan to reduce gun violence in America:

 

 

“Mayors from across America are gathered today in Washington D.C. to advocate for immediate reforms in our nation’s gun laws. I am pleased to join them here in the nation’s capital, and I’m deeply grateful to President Obama for his strong and decisive actions today to help us reduce gun violence in communities across America. Requiring background checks for all firearm sales is absolutely critical to stemming the tide of illegal guns in the hands of criminals. Congress should act on this and the President’s other recommendations as an urgent priority. I am also very pleased with the President’s call for a national dialogue on mental health, which must expand beyond today’s debate about gun violence and lay the groundwork for real reforms that will finally help people with mental illness access the services they need.”

Healthy Living


Live, Love, Be Happy!!!

 


As the school year begins for many students and parents, the layers of stress also begin to pile on. However, there are a few key things that will help both parents and students transition into a smoother school year.

  1. Being organized helps to keep track of time and the things that are priority. Hanging up a calendar or to-do list for the family help with time management.
  2. Setting aside time for fun for the family will help reduce the daily stress of our busy lives. Having a game night, movie night  will implement togetherness.
  3. At the end of the day we all need a peace of mind; yoga, meditation and a nice shower or bath will help you unwind and relax for the day ahead.

​Just  remember that stress not only affects you, but it affects those around you and your daily performance. So just let it go... laugh

 

Check out this video for a junp start...

 

 

 

Have a Stress Free School Year from Power 96.5!!!

DEFENDANTS WILL APPEAR IN COURT TOGETHER FOR DEATH OF MSU STUDENT


Prosecution and defense went head-to-head in 54B District Court Tuesday as new details emerged about Detroit resident Dishon Tryan Ambrose, one of two men allegedly responsible for the death of MSU freshmen Olivia Pryor.

From State News:

 

In March, Pryor was found dead in her Hubbard Hall dorm room and MSU police determined both alcohol and criminal sexual conduct were factors.

Ambrose, 19, faces a felony charge of selling or furnishing to a minor causing death.

A second suspect, Marquez Dominique Cannon, faces charges of criminal sexual conduct, injury to an incapacitated victim, selling or furnishing to a minor causing death and criminal sexual conduct, force or coercion for Pryor’s death.

During his court appearance, Ambrose’s attorney Sheldon Halpern, argued to schedule his client’s pretrial for the week of July 30 instead of Aug. 14 – the same day as Cannon’s. Halpern said he did not want the two men to be presented as codefendants in the case because Cannon faces serious criminal sexual conduct charges.

Because Ambrose and Cannon have one similar charge – furnishing alcohol to a minor causing death – and both cases would require many of the same witnesses, Judge David Jordan ruled that both men will appear in court on Aug. 14 for a pretrial and Aug. 17 for a preliminary examination.

Halpern also argued to lower Ambrose’s bond from $250,000. He presented several letters from Ambrose’s friends, family and former employers to attest to his character.

Citing many of the letters, Halpern described Ambrose as “a young man who’s going somewhere” in life, using terms such as wonderful, trustworthy and compassionate to express Ambrose’s character.

“I know the remorse he feels is strong,” Halpern said on behalf of Ambrose, adding that his client and Pryor were close friends.

Debra Rousseau, Ingham County’s criminal sexual conduct prosecutor, argued there might have been a side of Ambrose his friends and family didn’t know.

“This is an ongoing investigation and new information is found every week,” Rousseau said.

Rousseau said there is sufficient evidence that although Ambrose did not commit the sexual conduct, he helped Cannon clean up the blood from Pryor’s rape, discard towels and clothes and provided transportation to leave the scene.

She said Ambrose has confessed to police that he furnished alcohol for Pryor and played the drinking games that led to her death.

“Due to his admission that he brought the alcohol with Marquez Cannon to the room and participated in those events, he is very likely to be convicted of this high-level severity felony,” Rousseau said.

Rousseau also cited as evidence Ambrose’s tweets regarding his feeling on rape which Rousseau said doesn’t appear to be the sentiments of the type of bright young man Ambrose’s friends and family had described in their letters.

Jordan said Ambrose has no prior record, no history of substance abuse and no mental issues, but because of Ambrose’s “dangerous behavior” and likelihood of being conviction, Jordan denied the request to lower his bond.
