A large crowd listens to Attorney General Jim Hood Tuesday evening during the Fifth Annual Mississippi Fallen Law Enforcement Officers Candlelight Vigil at the State Capitol Mall in Jackson. Attorney General Hood and Mississippi Association of Chiefs of Police hosted the event. Seven officers from Mississippi have lost their lives since last year’s ceremony. So far, Mississippi leads the nation in line-of-duty police deaths for 2015. Of the 44 fallen officers in 2015, five are from Mississippi, according to the Officer Down Memorial Page, which keeps track of such deaths. On Saturday night, Hattiesburg Police Department officers Laquori Tate and Benjamin Deen were gunned down during a traffic stop, catapulting Mississippi to the top of the list. Since Tate and Deen were killed over the weekend, many state and national public figures and political leaders have again called for an end to the violence against police. Every day, officers go out not knowing what the day will hold nor whether a "routine" traffic stop could end up being their last. Tim Rutledge, director of the Mississippi Law Enforcement Alliance for Peer Support, emphasized the crisis police are facing now.
" 'The migrant boat tragedy is not just Europe's problem,' a title by the 'Daily Maverick', a South African daily, silently screams. "The African Union communications department has been very busy lately, issuing statements on subjects as varied and diverse as the Sudanese elections, the killing of Ethiopian citizens by 'Islamic State' (IS) in Libya, the xenophobic violence in... Meanwhile, Melissa Bailey reported Tuesday from Perugia, Italy, for NiemanLab, "Before a dramatic capsizing sent European leaders scrambling to address an epidemic of migrant drownings, a team of independent journalists was quietly tracking the... "The journalists — a loose association of investigative reporters from across the continent — joined forces in 2013 to answer a seemingly simple question: How many people are dying trying to migrate to Europe. Kayser-Bril led a team of journalists to create The Migrants Files — a database and map showing how, when, and where migrants are dying. That was before April 18, when a boat of 950 Libyan migrants capsized in the Mediterranean, killing at least 800, and prompting European leaders to hold an emergency summit in Brussels and ramp up search-and-rescue efforts.
“What pays my bills is repair work,” Paulk said. The shop—500 feet from the San Andreas fault line and with a view of the San Juan Bautista Mission—has a heartbeat of its own with more than 500 clocks tick-tocking out a rhythm. Paulk’s journey into the world of clock repair work started in 1965 when he joined the Navy and put several years of experience repairing office supplies to use as an instrumentman on the USS Prairie. He calibrated steam and pressure instruments, and adjusted clocks, stopwatches and wristwatches. “I never worked on a clock ’til I got in the Navy,” Paulk said. After serving in the Navy, Paulk pursued a 27-year career working on computer hard drives before he eventually returned to his interest in time-telling instruments by starting a repair business in Oklahoma. Typically, Paulk’s customers are 60 to 65 years old and bring in clocks that they’ve had for a long time. Some clocks have been retirement gifts. “The young people hardly don’t wear watches anymore because it’s on their cell phone,” Paulk said. In fact, Yoshinaga takes Paulk’s view of the watch trend a step further and suggests that smart phones are great for alarms and casual time telling, but aren’t as classy as a wristwatch for younger people in a professional setting.
“To omit numbers and have an abstract object that moved on the wall was something no one was doing at the time,” he says. Once or twice a year he would design a group of about eight clocks, which would then be presented to Howard Miller and put into ...
