All aboard for Mother’s Day

first_img“I couldn’t sleep last night,” said Brown, who became guardian of two of his sisters, Brianna Petteway, 15, and Destiny Petteway, 12, after their mother was incarcerated for a second time. His other two sisters, China Petteway, 13, and Johnnycia Petteway, 16, live with other relatives. “This is my first time to see my mom in two years. She will be proud of me.” About 650 California kids hopped aboard similar buses Friday to visit five women’s prisons and celebrate Mother’s Day through an annual program created through the Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. Many have fathers in prison or who long ago abandoned them. Those living with remaining family members or in foster care typically lack reliable transportation to see their mothers in prison, especially because those prisons are usually in remote areas of the state. Once chance a year Shuffled among foster care facilities nearly all his life, Derric Brown recalls a brief time when he lived with his mom and life felt normal. He was in ninth grade and needed a note for school. Mom wrote it. It was the first time his mother had signed anything for school, a job usually relegated to guardians or his grandmother while his mom was in prison for selling drugs. Still grinning with pride about the memory of that day, Brown, now 22, wants his four younger sisters to have more traditional family experiences like that one – holiday gatherings, homemade Sunday dinners and movie nights. And on Friday, the five from Palmdale boarded a chartered bus with about 20 other children from the San Fernando and Antelope valleys on a 250-mile journey to Central California Women’s Facility and Valley State Prison in Chowchilla to celebrate what millions of others in the United States recognize today – Mother’s Day. In California, there are about 11,846 female inmates and 160,000 male inmates, Department of Corrections spokesman Bill Sessa said. For nearly all those on the buses, Friday was the one chance of the year to see Mom. Most are children of addicts who have seen their family lives derailed because of drugs. It was 5 a.m. when Brown’s bus pulled out of Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church in Encino and 11-year-old Isaiah Anderson rolled up and down the aisles in his heelies, trendy gym shoes with wheels in them. This was the second year on the bus for the sixth-grader and his 6-year-old sister, Lacresha Collins, to visit their mom, Janet Collins, who is incarcerated for drugs at Valley State Prison. The children live with their aunt, 42-year-old Brenda Collins, in Van Nuys, but Isaiah had concerns about the visit. “My mom is going to give me a talk,” he said. “I got in trouble at school, and she sent me a letter saying she wants to have a talk with me today.” For these moms, the connections with their kids serve as life preservers in their gritty prison lives, said Lupe Rios, prison family services coordinator. “You have to shut out what’s happening to survive here,” Rios said. “Contact with the outside world reminds them that there’s more to life.” Rios said the more contact the women have with their children, the less chance they’ll return to prison. Program buses kids But unlike visiting days each week at men’s prisons, there’s usually never a line of loved ones. Typically the men in their lives desert the women after they go to prison, said Sister Suzanne Jabro, who works for the nonprofit Women and Criminal Justice. In fact, men’s prisons have so many visits by moms, girlfriends and wives that a third visitors’ day was recently added. For women’s prisons, the state is using the $625,000 it would cost to staff a third visiting day to instead run an 18-month program to bus children four times a year to visit their mothers in Chowchilla prisons. Called Chowchilla Family Express, the bus made its first trip to the prisons March25. Jabro said the additional visits create much-needed connections for the children. “These kids are in pain,” Jabro said. “We have to do something about this. This is damaging people who are victims to all of this, and they are the children.” That means more trips for 16-year-old Kristian Daniels of Lancaster and her mother, Cora Murry, 43, who crammed a year’s worth of conversations about boys, school pressure and college plans into the four-hour visit Friday. Throughout the year, they stay in touch through letters but do not talk on the phone because calls from California state prisons cost about $1 a minute. The two struggled to say goodbye when their visit ended. “She’s growing up on me,” said Murry, who has about 10 more years left on her sentence. “When I left, she was my little girl.” As the Petteway girls caught a glimpse of their mother, Sharon McMillian, coming through the locked prison gates, the stony faces of Johnnycia and Brianna softened, and the two sisters cried. The family spent the afternoon deep in conversation. When it was time to leave, McMillian quickly hugged her kids and briskly walked away. “I don’t like goodbyes,” she said to them. “So I’ll see you all later.” (818) 713-3746160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Exclusive – Liverpool will finish higher than Man United this season, claims ex-Reds star

first_imgJason McAteer claims Liverpool will finish in a higher Premier League position than Manchester United this season.The Red Devils have been hotly tipped to regain their place in the top four, following a disastrous last season under David Moyes which saw them finish seventh.Louis van Gaal’s arrival, coupled with a superb pre-season campaign, has boosted confidence at Old Trafford, but McAteer believes Brendan Rodgers’ side, who finished second last tem, will again be looking down at their arch-rivals come the end of the 2014/15 campaign.“Liverpool will finish above Manchester United this season,” the former Anfield midfielder told The Sports Bar.“Man United have a good set of fixtures though and, by October, they will have only one of the top four from last season.“They should be sitting top of the league table at the end of October. Liverpool have got a bigger squad though.”last_img read more

Everton ask fans to rate Allardyce

first_imgThe former England boss has brushed off the criticism and recently told journalists asking about the abuse: “Your lives are really run by Facebook, Twitter and Instagram far too much.“You shouldn’t listen to speculating unprofessionals which is what you are doing to get your stories.”However, supporters have been given an official channel in which to air their views with Everton’s annual survey dropping through the letterboxes of the club’s fan panel.As part of the questionnaire supporters can have their say on whether they agree with the statement of: “I have a high level of trust in the current manager and coaching staff at Everton e.g. in making the right decisions to get the best out of the team.”Recipients are invited to rank that statement from one to 10.Fan surveys are common across Premier League clubs, but the results of the managerial question will be useful for Everton majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri as he considers Allardyce’s future.Allardyce, who has lifted Everton away from the relegation zone since replacing the sacked Ronald Koeman, is pushing ahead with plans for next season, confirming last week he has put his pre-season preparations in place.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Everton fans asked to rate manager Sam Allardyce © IKIMAGES/AFP / Ian KINGTONLONDON, United Kingdom, Apr 17 – Everton have asked fans to grade the performance of under-fire manager Sam Allardyce by giving him a mark out of 10 in a club survey.Allardyce has endured stinging criticism from Everton supporters unhappy about his direct style of football and the team’s inconsistent results since he took charge in November.last_img read more

Real popemobile on the auction block

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week The car also comes with possible papal possessions: carved wooden rosary beads, a box of wooden matches, a candy tin and a dashboard medallion bearing the likeness of St. Maria Goretti, the patron of youth, young women, purity and victims of rape. And just imagine the stories behind those dings and scratches. “It appears to me he was a pretty bad driver,” auction employee Rick Limpp said as he wiped fingerprints from a chrome bumper that shows obvious hammer marks from repairs. Kruse likes to imagine Cardinal Karol Wojtyla driving around Poland before he became pope in 1978, and later dressing in commoners’ clothing to head into the Italian mountains for rest, relaxation and reflection. That was before a 1981 assassination attempt prompted Vatican security officials to put the brakes on solo papal drives into the countryside. “No one would know it was him. Who would?” said Rita Bauman, another Kruse employee who was posting photos of the pope, the car and the Vatican around the otherwise undistinguished vehicle. “I think it was a clever disguise.” Kruse, based in Auburn, Ind., said he thought the car might fetch as much as $3 million in the auction. That would be considerably more that the $1,200 Kruse has said it might sell for on a used car lot, and almost 30 times the $102,000 that Illinois businessman Jim Rich paid the last time Kruse auctioned the pope’s car in 1996. Rich, of Sugar Grove, Ill., went to Rome to accept the keys from the pontiff. Rich was traveling to Las Vegas on Friday and planning to hand over the keys to a new owner today. Rich’s attempt to auction the car in June – shortly after Pope John Paul II’s death – was postponed due to a bankruptcy and ownership dispute between Rich and his father. The Escort, not to be confused with the bullet-resistant glass “popemobile” that became famous during John Paul II’s world tours, spent several years on display at Rich’s restaurant in Sugar Grove. It has been kept since June at the Kruse Automotive and Carriage Museum in Auburn. “While the car is a very inexpensive car,” Kruse said, “there’s a story that goes with it.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

There are too many nicks and dents, and too few frills on the boxy four-door sedan up for auction today in a Las Vegas casino showroom. It has no hubcaps, no air conditioning, no radio. The engine built 30 years ago at a Ford plant in Cologne, Germany, won’t even start. But just imagine the pope – whose hands blessed millions all over the world – clutching the padded steering wheel and downshifting while flooring the gas pedal and praying the little 1.1-liter engine would crest a steep Italian hill. “Christ had a donkey,” auctioneer Dean Kruse said as workers prepped and polished the car for sale at the Las Vegas Hilton. “This was a humble car for a humble man.” last_img read more
