Jim Sunny,some of the Africans arriving in Portland (Maine) had $600-$2,000 in rolled $100 dollar bills. They have a good network of information,because they knew that Portland was good place to arrive.

*Volodymyr Zhukovskyy* Whatever. Did this guy have a tox screen? Another question.

Jane,his name is Volodomyr Zhovoskyy.

Jane,as Howie just said,there are so many questions. This guy is 23 years old and has a record going back six years. Maybe he didn't need a CDL for a pick-up,but with multiple DUIs,how did he still have a regular license? I think justice will be served if he's put in a room with the Jarheads Motorcycle Club.

Darn! I took a nap and missed the first few minutes of Howie Carr. Hubby caught me up on the discussion about the pick-up driver who killed the bikers. He is an legal immigrant from the Ukraine. He has multiple (!) DUIs and other motor vehicle infractions. Mass.State Police found heroin residue in his house. After the accident and before returning to West Springfield he went to the beach! This is unbelievable! How did he have a driver's license,never mind a CDL?!

Exactly,OL! That is why if there is a hint of suspicion about this guy's legal status,Howie Carr will be all over it.

The NTSB is investigating the accident. The best coverage is the Manchester Union Leader. Law enforcement must have been overwhelmed by the carnage. Two of the injured were sent to the hospital in Berlin. Another is at Maine Medical Center. We are very familiar with that road. U.S. Route 2 is the east-west highway in northern New England,thru Maine and NH into VT. It is twisty and hilly and this time of year,busy.
Toggle Commented yesterday on Weekend Open Thread at JustOneMinute
Yes,OL. That is why I assume NH law enforcement told him not to go too far. He somehow got back to West Springfield between Friday night and this morning. I wonder why he wasn't detained in NH?

Good afternoon! Yikes Jane! Let's pray there isn't another Hurricane Charley! Update on the horrific crash that killed seven motorcyclists in northern NH on Friday. The seven victims were from three New England states,so this story has been huge up here. NH officials charged the driver of the pick-up with seven counts of negligent homicide. The man's name is Volodymyr Zhukovsky,age 23. He was arrested on a fugitive from justice charge by the Mass.State Police at his home in West Springfield,MA. He was not injured in the crash,but his pick-up was a burnt out shell of metal after the impact of the accident. Something doesn't smell right about this story. He wasn't charged immediately after the accident,but I assume NH law enforcement probably told him to stay in the state? How did he get back to Springfield from northern NH? I hope Howie Carr mentions this story,because my spidey sense is on alert!

Lizzie Warren sometimes switches out her blue jacket for red or purple or deep pink,but always wears black slacks and a black t-shirt or tank top under the jacket. I look forward to her jackets in the fashionable oven mitt pattern that Hillary wears. :)

Good afternoon! Sunny and breezy here,just perfect. Speaking of TR,hubby is reading "Becoming Teddy Roosevelt" about TR's time in the northern Maine woods. TR bonded with Bill Sewall,a North Woods lumberman. "A thin pale youngster with bad eyes and a weak heart" took the train from Boston to Mattawamkeag and by sheer strength of will, gained health and confidence during his time in the Maine woods. I've never seen hubby so absorbed in a book. :)

Ha,What I mean is that any connection to Portland or Bangor is unreliable. The last connection to Bangor gets in about midnight,which is a PITA. Don't get me started about winter travel! :)

The horrific crash that jim nj posted @ 6:09 is in all the New England media. The bikers were from the Boston area,some of the injured were transferred to Maine Medical. The bikers were going to the "Blessing of the Bikes" at the Oblate Shrine in Colebrook,NH. Law enforcement and other witnesses said the scene was "devastating." Terrible.

Good Morning! MM,that is interesting. The late flights out of DC to Portland or Bangor are often unreliable. One time I missed a flight from Charlotte to Bangor and was able to get a flight to Portland. Thank goodness it was summer, because I walked over to an airport hotel and the next morning hubby drove down to get me. Sounds like Angus made the best of the situation.

Happy Summer! The first day of summer here has been cool and rainy,so hubby burned brush. I'm running out of closets and cupboards to clean on these rainy days! It is going to be a short summer! For the sake of the tourists and the locals (who are desperate for good weather) I hope the weather improves.

Good afternoon! Ha,Howie Carr opened his show with the "M.T.A." song by the Kingston Trio,because the red line will be closed all summer after the recent derailment. He also talked to former Gov. LePage,who is very upset about the situation in Portland. He said the immigrant influx is draining money and resources from the needy elderly,children and homeless vets. LePage said,who could imagine that homeless people would be sleeping in front of Longfellow's house?

Okay. I'm freaking out. Last night and again this morning I received emails from somebody in a South American country who is either in jail or needs to pay a court fee,I don't know,because it is all in Spanish. The freaky thing is it is addressed to me, Marlene. I deleted the message each time. What is this??!!

Today is my mother-in-law's 89th birthday. She is looking forward to going to independent living and we are relieved that she will move in by September 1st. Her house up north is for sale and in a couple of weeks,hubby is assisting her in a moving sale. We are blessed that hubby's siblings are all in agreement about her arrangements. My own mother is in failing health,won't admit it and has a stubborn streak. One sibling-in-law has elderly parents that sit and drink all day and another sibling-in-law has a parent with dementia. Looks like "fun" times ahead for some of us.

Many years ago at our house in northern Maine,during a straight line thunderstorm,a tree uprooted and crashed onto the fence. I watched it all happen from the kitchen window and yelled,"oh sh*t,my fence!" Our neighbor was a young guy who was a meteorologist at the Caribou weather station.When he got home from work,I said,"Dan,I think we had a tornado!" He took pictures and other details and said it was a thunderstorm.

Wow,Momto2,that is big tree! We have a few "widow makers" in the woods that I have banned hubby from going near. He's calling a professional. There is a downed tree at the end of the stream blocking access to the river. As soon as the water recedes,it needs to be removed. Iggy,do you make house calls? :)

Good Morning! MM @ 7:05...yesterday Howie Carr interviewed the head of the Houlton (Maine) U.S. Border Patrol. He told Howie that some of the asylum seekers from Congo and Angola arriving in Portland have been found to have $600-$2,000 in rolled up $100 bills. He also told Howie that at least 50 of his agents have been sent to the southern border,as is the case for all the northern border sectors. Others are sent for month long deployments as needed.
