Surprised by his answer, the Willey’s were thrilled to hear that Wright would partake in their new residential design.Save this picture!Courtesy of Willey House WebsiteHis first design added up to be too costly, so a bit of revision and rethinking led to the second design, a modest 1,200 square feet and costing around $10,000. It is primarily built of red brick and cypress wood, with the overall intention of maintaining visual connections between all of the central spaces. To do this, the living room and dining room were unified in a single space, while the kitchen was separated from them by a small group of shelves. This allowed for Mrs. Willey to keep an eye on the rest of the house while working in the kitchen. A hallway lined with bookshelves leads to the study, a small bedroom, bath and the master bedroom.Save this picture!The surroundings of the house are just as beautiful as the interior, with the floor length glass doors of the living room’s south wall allowing views out into the natural environment. In the shape of an acute triangle, a brick terrace lines the walls of the house. Above it rests a trellis which eases the transition from inside out. Wright’s design was a new concept, an important step away from the compartmentalizing of the house based on functions. Save this picture!Courtesy of Willey House WebsiteThe style of the Willey House is often considered a bridge between Wright’s Prairie School style houses and his later Usonian houses.In 1963 the Willey’s sold the home to a different family, who would later sell the home to a Wright aficionado that only occasionally occupied the home. Save this picture!Courtesy of Willey House WebsiteThe residence was eventually sold to the current owners, and upon their purchase they realized that the house was in major need of restoration.

Clarence Moses El’s 28-year quest for justice

first_imgClarence Moses ElBased on a talk given at a Workers World Party meeting in New York City, Dec. 18.Time cannot be returned to you, so how can 28 lost years ever be made up? How can you quantify such a long time into a material sum? The emotional damage and psychic trauma, the familial losses and funerals missed, the milestones passed by — birthdays, holidays, graduations, etc., all missed. Twenty eight years is a long time.But to be locked in a dungeon, with no freedom of movement, without the tenderness of loved ones, without being able to freely pass under the sun or night sky, and to lose 28 years. Every day behind a set of bars or large steel doors, to have to listen to the same clanging locking mechanisms, with the days moving at a quarter of the speed, living a torturous half life is nothing short of maddening.Imagine being under the above circumstances, having been arrested in front of your three-year-old son, charged, tried, convicted and sentenced without having been responsible for the crime. Imagine that the image of you being placed under arrest after a bike ride with your three-year-old would most likely stick with the young boy as he grew into a young man, away from you, without your loving parental guidance.This is what life has been like for Clarence Moses El since he was convicted in Denver in 1988 because of a premonition, despite there being no other evidence attributed to the act. It was a brutal assault and rape of a victim who initially said three names — L.C., Earl and Darnell — of men whom she thought may have attacked and raped her. None of the three was ever arrested or interviewed. But Moses El was arrested shortly after the victim claimed to see his face in “a dream” she had a few days afterwards.Semen was analyzed, but it was not a match to Clarence’s and should have ruled him out. It was more of a match to L.C. Jackson’s. However, the DNA evidence was stored, as the science was new and not very frequently used, not by the prosecution or defense.When Clarence Moses El, through Barry Scheck’s Innocence Project, won a court order to have the DNA evidence tested, the material, stored in a box marked “Do Not Destroy,” was tossed into a trash bin.This would be one of many callous, criminal acts committed by Denver officials that in a just society would lead to an investigation — not only of the police department that was responsible for maintaining and storing the evidence, but of the District Attorney’s office that refused to retry the case after the destruction of the evidence. There was later the conviction of L.C. Jackson for another rape (though he was the first person mentioned by the victim), and for failing to reopen the case after L.C. Jackson, in late 2013, confessed to the attack on the victim. The DA’s office even tried to suppress the confession by L.C. Jackson and intimidate him into changing his statement.Free him now!Now the entire unbelievable and unfortunate torture of Clarence Moses El, the interminable 28 years in cells, appears to be coming to an end. On Dec. 14, Denver District Judge Kandace Gerdes finally — months after an evidentiary hearing where L.C. Jackson’s statement was entered into evidence along with new blood evidence — vacated the original conviction and ordered a new trial.It is difficult to call this decision “justice,” not after so much time and loss. Imagine this were you and these years were taken, a moment at a time, taken while you sat, stowed away, surrounded by clanging locks, large metal doors and concrete, looking at the same colors and walls, and you are innocent. You live with the innocence, professing to it, believing in it, holding it. It is the blanket you pull up to your chin at night, and you fight so that your hope and struggle for freedom to live at full speed, to touch the people you love are no longer a dream.What if this were you? It has been Clarence Moses El’s reality, a living nightmare for 28 years.It is finally coming to a close, hopefully, for the case still needs to be dropped, and there is always the threat that the DA’s office will appeal the judge’s decision and push forward with a trial with no damning evidence other than a “premonition” — though there is a heavier amount of material evidence pointing to Moses El’s innocence.While Clarence and his family wait in limbo for this decision to be made, it is important that people of conscience call the DA’s office and demand that the case be dropped, that this sick farce be ended, that this 60-year-old man be allowed to walk free and return to his family.Twenty eight years. While not justice, this is a victory, a partial victory that will be complete when Clarence is free without the threat of another trial hanging over his head and when the state of Colorado pays for the years they took away from an innocent man.Call or email DA Mitch Morrissey at 720-913-9000 or [email protected] and tell him to drop the case against Clarence Moses El.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The program, which started in early 2013 as the Corn Rootworm Knowledge Program, provides merit-based awards of up to $250,000 per award per year for up to three years for outstanding research that will not only enhance the collective understanding of insect management, but help address significant challenges and issues in agriculture.“The valuable research that is being generated through this program will provide industry and academia further opportunity to enhance our collective understanding of insect management, leading to even more effective solutions for farmers in the future,” said Dr. Sherri Brown, vice president of science strategy for Monsanto and co-chair of the program.The IMKP is guided by a 10-person Advisory Committee that is co-chaired by Dr. Brown, and Dr. Steven Pueppke, associate vice president of research and graduate studies for Michigan State University. The committee consists of academics and growers, and provides guidance on integrated pest management, as well as recommendations for areas of basic research on insect resistance and management that would be of interest to growers, the academic community and Monsanto. Earlier this year, the program expanded its focus to include insects that are economically damaging to any U.S. row crop.“This IMKP grant will allow us to move our laboratory-based studies of the molecular mechanisms of gene silencing in insects into an actual field testing setting, which I couldn’t do with more traditional biomedical research funding agencies,” said Dr. Philip Zamore, professor of biochemistry and molecular pharmacology, and co-director of the RNA Theraputics Institute at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.The six awards granted focus on a number of items from addressing the management of insect threats such as whitefly, soybean aphid, and corn earworm resistance to creating a new model for determining how key risk factors affect the development of insect resistance in transgenic Bt corn. The award recipients are:Peter Ellsworth, University of ArizonaFelicia Wu, Michigan State UniversityJeff Gore, Mississippi State UniversityMatthew O’Neal, Iowa State UniversityTom Coudron, USDA-ARSPhilip Zamore, University of Massachusetts“I am very appreciative that the Insect Management Knowledge Program is providing a grant for our team to model how the most devastating pest of U.S. corn, the corn rootworm, develops resistance to insect control products, and how management practices can help combat this problem,” said Felicia Wu, university distinguished professor at Michigan State University.A listing of the winners and background on their projects is available on the Monsanto Insect Management Knowledge Program webpage.

Charter election includes proposed term increase for council

first_imgFacebook ReddIt National Night Out increases community safety Facebook Fort Worth’s cat population remains steady Tori Knox Tori Knox Linkedin ReddIt Twitter Teenage pregnancy rates remain high in Tarrant County + posts printFort Worth council members’ terms could be increased by residents in the charter election May 7.Currently, Fort Worth council members serve a two-year term after being elected into office. If Proposition 1 passes, the council members’ terms would increase to three years.The City Charter Review Task Force, whose recommendations also include increasing the number of council members and raising the salary of council members, recommended the proposed term increase.The task force compared Fort Worth with cities similar in population and style of government, said Mary Kayser, city secretary of Fort Worth.In the state of Texas, local government terms can range from two to four years, and Fort Worth’s city council has always stayed with two-year terms, Kayser said.The three-year terms would create more of an independent election cycle for council members, said Mattie Parker, chief of staff for the mayor and city council of Fort Worth.Under the current two-year terms new council members get seated on the council during the middle of the budget process which means they really only serve through one budget process, Kayser said.The budget process is a large part of what council members do, and with three-year terms council members would be a part of two budget processes, Parker said.The two-year term limits what council members can do, Kayser said.“There’s just not enough time to really complete some things that [council members] might have come forward onto the council wanting to do,” Kayser said.Parker said two years is too short because council members are always campaigning.“You want to encourage people to be focused on the topic and the issue at hand,” Parker said. “I think three years is a good compromise in many ways.”If Proposition 1 passes, the candidates who run in the May 2017 election will be running for a three-year term.The charter election will be held on May 7.
