Comienza proceso disciplinario para la obispa sufragánea de Maryland debido a fatal accidente Cook con licencia administrativa mientras prosiguen las investigaciones de la policía y de la Iglesia Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Heather Cook, obispa sufragánea de la Diócesis de Maryland, permanece con licencia administrativa pendiente de los resultados de la investigación de un accidente fatal en el cual la policía dice que ella era la conductora [del vehículo responsable del accidente] Foto de Richard Schori.[Episcopal News Service] Heather Cook, obispa sufragánea de la Diócesis de Maryland sigue con licencia administrativa y la Iglesia Episcopal ha puesto en marcha procesos disciplinarios luego de su participación en un fatal accidente automovilístico en el cual ella temporalmente abandonó el lugar de los hechos luego de chocar y matar a un ciclista.El accidente, ocurrido el 27 de diciembre en el norte de Baltimore, y en el cual resultó muerto Thomas Palermo, de 41 años, aún está sujeto a investigación por parte de la policía local y no se han presentado cargos.“Actualmente estamos siguiendo el proceso disciplinario de la Iglesia, y ofreciendo atención pastoral”, dijo el 6 de enero Neva Rae Fox, encargada de relaciones públicas de la Iglesia Episcopal, al hablar en nombre de la obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori. “Tenemos a la obispa Cook, a la Diócesis de Maryland y a la familia Palermo en nuestras oraciones”.Ella añadió que “según los Cánones, los detalles del proceso se mantienen confidenciales”.El Título IV de los Cánones de la Iglesia Episcopal rige la disciplina eclesiástica de los miembros del clero. El Canon 17 del Título IV bosqueja el proceso disciplinario de los obispos.En el ínterin, la diócesis ha dado a conocer un informe sobre ciertos detalles concernientes al día de los hechos y a la investigación en las horas y los días que siguieron inmediatamente después al accidente.Tom Palermo, de 41 años de edad, padre de Sadie, de 6 años, y de Sam, de 4 años, era ingeniero de informática en el Hospital Johns Hopkins y también fabricaba estructuras de bicicletas por encargo.

Scott Slater, canónigo del Ordinario (Sutton), casi a las 3 P.M. del 27 de diciembre, “diciéndole que ella creía que había atropellado a un ciclista y que estaba en shock”. Slater llegó a la escena 10 minutos después y encontró el auto de Cook acordonado con la cinta amarilla con que se aísla la escena de un crimen y a ella sentada en un patrullero. Slater habló con los agentes sobre la llamada de Cook y luego llamó a Sutton y al canciller de la diócesis y abandonó el lugar.La policía de Baltimore llamó a Slater poco antes de la 5:30 P.M. para pedirle que pasara a recoger a Cook. Él así lo hizo y la llevó a su apartamento donde “centró su conversación, pastoralmente, en ella, como hija de Dios”, y oró con ella antes de irse.Dos días después, en la noche del 29 de noviembre, la policía de Baltimore le pidió a Slater que fuera a la estación de policía para hacer una declaración grabada. Y así lo hizo, decía el informe, respondiendo “todas las preguntas tan minuciosa y completamente como él podía recordar, incluidos los detalles de su conversación con Cook durante el trayecto en auto a su apartamento”.Slater no le proporcionó otros detalles al clero en la reunión “por respeto a la investigación de la policía, a la familia Palermo y a Cook”, decía el informe, que añadía que Slater no podía compartir su cooperación y la de otros miembros del personal [diocesano] con la investigación del [hecho conforme al] Título IV debido a su obligatoria confidencialidad.“Cook se encuentra ahora en buenas manos y está siendo atendida lo cual esperamos la ayudará en el trayecto a seguir”, decía también el informe.Palermo era un ingeniero principal de informática en el hospital Johns Hopkins, quien también fabricaba estructuras de bicicletas por encargo, según los informes noticiosos.Un improvisado monumento recordatorio ha ido creciendo contiguo al lugar donde ocurrió el accidente el 27 de diciembre, en el cual falleció el ciclista Tom Palermo luego de ser arrollado por el auto que conducía Heather Cook, la obispa sufragánea de Maryland.

Gilan tomada de la página de Bikemore en Facebook.“Junto con la Diócesis de Maryland, expreso mi profundo pesar por la muerte del ciclista y ofrezco mis condolencias a la familia de la víctima. Oremos por el Sr. Palermo, por su familia y por la obispa Cook durante este dificilísimo momento”, dijo Sutton en una declaración que apareció en la página web de la diócesis el 29 de diciembre.Sutton confirmó en esa declaración que Cook conducía el auto que arrolló a Palermo y dijo que la obispa había abandonado la escena del accidente, pero que había regresado 20 minutos después “para asumir la responsabilidad de sus actos”. El obispo dijo que había puesto a Cook, de 58 años de edad, en licencia administrativa “porque la naturaleza del accidente podría dar lugar a cargos penales”. Ella seguía percibiendo salario y beneficios marginales conforme a la costumbre de la denominación, decía la declaración del 6 de enero.Sutton informó que había aplazado definitivamente su planeada licencia sabática debido al accidente y a sus secuelas.Sharon Tillman, directora de comunicaciones de la diócesis, dijo a Episcopal News Service en una entrevista telefónica el 2 de enero, que la policía le comunicó a la diócesis que podían pasar hasta dos meses antes de que estuviera disponible un informe sobre el accidente.David Irwin, un abogado que representa a Cook, le dijo a ENS el 2 de enero que su clienta está “consternada por la muerte del ciclista, naturalmente, y que está orando por él y por su familia”.El accidente sacó a la luz un incidente de tránsito de 2010 en el cual Cook fue arrestada por conducir bajo la influencia de bebidas alcohólicas y por posesión de marihuana.Según los archivos de la policía, un subalguacil del Condado de Caroline detuvo a Cook el 10 de septiembre de 2010 en la zona de la costa oriental de Maryland al observar que conducía a 46 kilómetros por hora por el borde de la carretera en una zona de 80 kilómetros por hora. Su auto tenía un neumático delantero destrozado.Los informes del incidente de 2010 decían que [el análisis arrojó que] Cook tenía un .27 de contenido de alcohol en la sangre. El límite legal en Maryland es de .08 por ciento. El agente dijo que se encontraron dos bolsitas de marihuana en el vehículo, junto con adminículos para el consumo de la droga, así como una botella de vino y otra de una bebida destilada.Cook se declaró culpable de conducir en estado de embriaguez en ese incidente y le suspendieron el cargo por posesión de marihuana. El 25 de octubre de 2010, un juez la sentenció a pagar $300 de multa y a libertad condicional vigilada. Un comunicado que apareció en la página web de la diócesis el 30 de diciembre, decía que durante el proceso de búsqueda que dio lugar a que Cook resultara electa obispa sufragánea en 2014, ella había “revelado todo” [lo concerniente ] al arresto de 2010 por el cual el tribunal le impuso “libertad condicional sin juicio”.“Después de una extensa discusión y discernimiento acerca del incidente, y luego de ulterior investigación, que incluyó un extenso examen de antecedentes y de [su] perfil psicológico, se determinó que este único error no debería de impedirle [a Cook] el que fuera tomada en consideración como [posible] líder”, decía el comunicado del 30 de diciembre.“Uno de los valores esenciales de la fe cristiana es el perdón”, decía también el comunicado. “No podemos predicar el perdón sin practicarlo y sin ofrecer a las personas la oportunidad de la redención”.La verificación de antecedentes y la investigación psicológica sobre Cook durante el proceso de búsqueda no fueron “ni más ni menos que aquellas a que se habría visto sometido cualquier otro nominado”, dijo Tillman a ENS.Cook fue electa el 2 de mayo de 2014 y se convirtió en la primera obispa de la diócesis cuando la consagraron el 6 de septiembre.

Foto de Eileen M. Gilan tomada de la página de Bikemore en Facebook.El 31 de diciembre, la diócesis exhortó a sus clérigos y a sus laicos a participar en un recorrido conmemorativo de Año Nuevo en honor de Palermo organizado por dos agrupaciones de ciclismo locales. El recorrido comenzó a las 3:30 P.M. en Bishop Square Park, adyacente a la catedral episcopal de La Encarnación [Episcopal Cathedral of the Incarnation]. Luego de un momento de silencio, los ciclistas se dirigieron hacia la escena del accidente, en el No. 5700 de la Avenida Roland, para colocar una bicicleta conmemorativa blanca, a la que le llaman “bicicleta fantasma”, en honor de Palermo.Directivos de Bikemore y Bike Maryland [los dos clubes de ciclismo] estuvieron de acuerdo en que los miembros de la diócesis pudieran publicitar y promover la participación en el recorrido conmemorativo, explicó Tillman.“Ellos nos invitaron; no querían que nos quedáramos fuera”, señaló ella. “La comunidad ciclista en Maryland, especialmente en Baltimore, es muy pujante y ellos en verdad tienen ahora un gran pesar y nosotros estamos compartiendo su duelo. Queríamos estar con ellos, pero sólo si nuestra presencia no empeoraba las cosas”.Algunos funcionarios de la diócesis abrieron el centro diocesano, así como la catedral, para que los ciclistas pudieran dedicar tiempo a la reflexión silenciosa, a calentarse y a usar los lavatorios, añadió Tillman.La misa funeral de Palermo se celebró el 3 de enero en la iglesia catolicorromana de la Inmaculada Concepción [Immaculate Conception] en Towson, Maryland. Sutton le pidió a los miembros de la diócesis que se unieran a él en un momento de oración silenciosa y de reflexión a las 10:00 A.M. de ese día en el momento en que comenzaba el funeral de Palermo.A Palermo le sobreviven su esposa, Rachel Rock Palermo; su hija Sadie de 6 años y su hijo Sam de 4, así como sus padres, según un obituario del Baltimore Sun. Algunos miembros de la familia han iniciado una recaudación de fondos para los hijos de Palermo.En la declaración del 6 de enero, la diócesis instó a las congregaciones a designar la ofrenda de un domingo para el fondo de la familia Palermo y a continuar orando por la familia Palermo y por Cook.– La Rda.

The Fed originally reported a 2.5-point pickup in the index for September.The index covers 19 separate indicators, including the national unemployment rate, average hourly earnings, and the transition rate from unemployment to employment.The Fed’s release follows the latest employment situation report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which put the U.S. unemployment rate at 5.8 percent in October as employers added 214,000 jobs. The news was mixed overall, however, as wages continued to stagnate.With the latest measure, the LMCI continued its now 28-month growth streak, though increases in the last few months have been modest compared to spring. The index’s growth topped out this year in April, when the Fed reported a gain of 7.1 points.The Fed does not report on the index’s overall value.

In April, this year, the bench comprising Justices Deepak Gupta and Aniruddha Bose held Vijay Kurle (State President, Maharashtra & Goa, Indian Bar Association), Rashid Khan Pathan (National Secretary, Human Rights Security Council) & Nilesh Ojha (National President, Indian Bar Association) guilty of contempt. On 6th May, the bench sentenced them to to undergo simple imprisonment for a period of 3 months each with a fine of Rs.2000/-. The court had further observed that the sentence shall come into force after 16 weeks from the date of the order i.e. 6th May, 2020, when the contemnors should surrender before the Secretary General of this Court to undergo the punishment. This is why the contemnors filed an application seeking to extend the time for surrendering in view of ongoing pandemic.The bench heard these applications and observed:Miscellaneous application Nos. 1435, 1436, 1437 have been filed by the contemnors to extend the time for surrendering in view of ongoing pandemic. Grounds other than the lockdown conditions have been raised in the applications which are not germane for deciding these applications for extension. However, in view of the prevailing conditions due to COVID-19 pandemic, we extend the time for surrendering by another 16 weeks. Applications stands disposed of accordingly. An application challenging Registry Order was also heard by the bench which it reserved for judgment.’Scurrilous and scandalous’ allegations against judgesThe contempt was initiated against the trio after a bench comprising Justices RF Nariman and Vineet Saran took suo moto cognizance of a letter sent by Bombay Bar Association and the Bombay Incorporated law Society. The bench observed that an attempt was made by the contemnors to “terrorize and intimidate” the judges.The trio were held liable for ‘scurrilous and scandalous’ allegations against Justices R F Nariman and Vineet Saran over their order sentencing Advocate Mathews Nedumpara guilty of contempt in March 2019. “Though the alleged contemnors claim that they are not expressing any solidarity with Shri Mathews Nedumpara nor do they have anything personal against Justice R.F. Nariman, the entire reading of the complaints shows a totally different picture. When we read both the complaints together it is obvious that the alleged contemnors are fighting a proxy battle for Shri Nedumpara. They are raking up certain issues which could have been raised only by Shri Nedumpara and not by the alleged contemnors Nedumpara”, the bench of Justices Deepak Gupta and Aniruddha had observed. “There is not an iota of remorse or any semblance of apology on behalf of the contemnors. Since they have not argued on sentence, we have to decide the sentence without assistance of the contemnors. In view of the scurrilous and scandalous allegations levelled against the judges of this Court and no remorse being shown by any of the contemnors we are of the considered view that they cannot be let off leniently”, the bench observed while sentencing them. The court had also observed that it was a concerted effort to virtually hold the Judiciary to ransom. In its recent judgment holding Advocate Prashant Bhushan guilty of contempt, the court has extensively referred to observations made in this case [Re: Vijay Kurle & Ors] to hold that the source of power of Supreme Court for proceeding for an action of contempt is under Article 129, and that power is not in any manner limited by the provisions of the Contempt of Courts Act, 1971.Click here to Read/Download OrderRead Order Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

FULL SERIES COVERAGE “That should put the old myth about traffic issues away forever,” Texas Motor Speedway President Eddie Gossage said. “Long lines of traffic are a thing of the past and the improved access along the speedway’s most important highway will certainly catch the attention of fans.”The near completion of the DFW Connector project, one of the most complex construction projects in Dallas/Fort Worth history, has untangled an eight-mile stretch of highways 114 and 121 that run through nearby Grapevine. The construction project has made steady progress in alleviating traffic problems since it first began in October 2009.The completion of the DFW Connector project in October also will provide improved traffic flow for fans traveling from Dallas and points west of Texas Motor Speedway.“We used to tell our Dallas fans to take I-35E North to Denton and then take I-35W South to the speedway,” Gossage said. “We don’t have any hesitation to tell fans now to take 114 West from Dallas all the way to the speedway. The improvements have made it smooth sailing for fans.”Road improvements also have continued to take shape closer to the speedway with the Highway 114 Construction Project and Highway 114/170 expansion project, which surpass a combined total of $53.3 billion.The Highway 114 Construction Project targets the stretch of highway west of I-35W and covers the road east of FM 156, including a key segment in front of Texas Motor Speedway. The $18 million project will expand the two-lane road into a four-lane frontage road and is set to be completed at the end of next year.The Highway114/170 expansion project will provide a revamped interchange to improve traffic flow and alleviate congestion at the intersection of 114 and Trophy Lake Dr. in Trophy Club. The project begins at the intersection of Business Highway 114 and continues west, just beyond Westlake Parkway and Trophy Club Drive. “We appreciate the hard work and ongoing efforts of the entire team at the Texas Department of Transportation,” Gossage said. “These projects go a long way in enhancing the fan experience.” View all photos View all articlesView all videos FORT WORTH, Texas (Sept. 23, 2013) – Road improvements totaling more than $1.1 billion along Highway 114 will provide substantial advances to the ingress and egress of traffic flow for race fans visiting Texas Motor Speedway.The improvements along Highway 114 – the speedway’s main thoroughfare for fans east of Texas Motor Speedway – have continued to take shape as some projects will reach completion by November’s AAA Texas 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series tripleheader weekend while the balance will be complete before the April 2014 NASCAR race weekend. The additional lanes along Highway 114 are expected to further improve the traffic flow during the AAA Texas 500 weekend and beyond.

By Dialogo December 21, 2011 Three Bolivians and two Peruvians were arrested with more than 1.5 tons of cocaine destined for Bolivia and Europe when a residence was searched in the region of Arequipa (in southern Peru), the Peruvian anti-drug police announced. The operation took place on December 18 in the Mariscal Cáceres district of the province of Camaná, where the drug traffickers had succeeded in camouflaging 1,320 kilos of the narcotic in the house’s patio. During a second intervention, the police seized 274 kilos of cocaine hidden in a tanker truck headed for the Bolivian city of Santa Cruz. “This is an international organization that was trying to get the drugs out of the country to Bolivia by land, in order to then send them to Europe by plane,” the director of the police, General Raúl Salazar, told the press. Salazar stated that three Bolivians (two men and a woman) were arrested in the operation and that the drugs are estimated to be worth 80 million dollars in Europe and 120 million dollars in Asia. The Bolivians were identified as Alejandro Condori Salvatierra, Primitiva Silita Fernández, and Ernesto Vidal Arce. In the last four months, the anti-drug police have arrested more than 20 Colombians who were trying to transport cocaine to the United States and Europe. A UN report stated in June that the area planted with coca – the raw material for cocaine – increased in Peru for the fifth consecutive year in 2010, rising to 61,200 hectares, compared to 59,900 hectares in 2009 and to the 62,000 hectares planted in Colombia.
