Sheriff’s office officials link rise in suicides to drug addiction, ‘cyclical’ trends – News – southcoasttoday.com

NEW BEDFORD — Brandon St. Pierre signed his name on the “New Commitment Housing Classification” form at the Ash Street jail on April 24, 2000. Above his signature appears three classifications. A check mark was inked beside “General Population: No problems expected.” The document appears as part of 526 pages associated with the Fall River native’s institutional records at Bristol County Jail and House of Corrections. The documents, obtained by the Standard-Times through a public records request, reveal the 15 years that followed St. Pierre signing the document were mired with constant problems, ending when correctional officers found him hanging from a window on May 6, 2015 in Cell M-03. He was 32. St. Pierre’s suicide represents one of 14 in the last decade at Bristol County correctional facilities, according to Sheriff Thomas Hodgson’s office. Eleven suicides have occurred under Hodgson’s watch in the last five years. In a 15-year period, from 1998 through 2012, the Bristol County Sheriff’s Office reported 10 suicides. The spike follows a statewide trend where Massachusetts ranks fourth in the country with 32 suicides per 100,000 state and federal prisoners. The national avera...

Cool Stuff: Mondoids Figures Bring Movie & TV Monsters to Life in a Gross Way /Film

Get a look at the first wave of Mondoids figures available now. Above is just the first series of Mondoids. In case it’s not clear, Mondo explains exactly what they are: “They’ve come from the planet MONDOIDA to make friends and eat snacks. Too bad their true form is too GROSS to look at!

Stroll around the beautiful cities of Lisbon or Bordeaux, and it is likely that you will

Stroll around the beautiful cities of Lisbon or Bordeaux, and it is likely that you will be as enchanted by the beautiful pastries as you will be by the wine. Pastéis de Nata, the delicious custard tarts which date back to before the 18th century, are thought to have been invented at the Jeronimos Monastery in the Confeitaria de Belém area of Lisbon, and cannelés, the spool-sized pastries which taste of custard and rum, are attributed to the city nuns from Saint Eulalia church. Apart from divine intervention, they both have something else in common. They are a by-product of winemaking. Many winemakers use egg whites to ‘fine’ wine, port and sherry, which is a way of clarifying the wines before they are bottled, and historically the surplus egg yolks were donated to convents who used them to make pastries and desserts like tocino del cielo. The egg white attracts and catches any cloudy particles in the wine, and when this debris is removed, all the egg white goes with it, so there isn’t a trace of it left in the wine. However, because it is used in the process, it doesn’t comply with the vegan diet. It’s not the only animal-related product which is u...

Driver’s view: Suffolk farmer rates his 2018 Landquip CV228

We asked five operators to run through the good points and bad points of their self-propelled sprayers and explain why they picked them. This time we’re focusing on British-built machines from Sands, Househam, Chafer, Landquip and Bateman, all with tank sizes of between 4,000 and 5,000 litres. It’s a 5,000-litre Landquip CV228 fitted with 24m Pommier aluminium booms. It arrived last spring replacing an eight year old CV225 with a 3,500-litre tank. With increasingly tight weather windows through that period we needed more capacity to make sure we got round everything without compromising timeliness. To further take the pressure off, we’ve also moved back to using 50% granular nitrogen, hence the decision to stick with 24m tramlines to guarantee accuracy from our Kuhn Axis spreader. Being just 30 miles from their HQ, we get excellent back-up should anything go wrong and their staff know the machine backwards. When we’re deep in that busy spring bottleneck spraying 14-18 hours a day, we can’t afford any downtime so having them on the doorstep is a godsend. Like our old machine, the new sprayer uses a Househam skid-unit – chassis, engine, transmission and cab – with the Landquip sp...

My experience/love affair/complex relationship with kayaking has taken a new turn this season. Where as, in

My experience/love affair/complex relationship with kayaking has taken a new turn this season. Where as, in the past I was always up for new and innovative things and gadgets that would put me “on the fish,” I now seek to simplify, simplify, simplify! That’s right! Oh, sure … I could haul off and upgrade with dual-purpose sonar options that would also serve for ice fishing. I could invest in a pedal-drive unit from one of the big companies. Or, perhaps, I could buy one of those kayak-specific trolling rigs that could propel me from one end of the lake to the other without having made a single paddle stroke. And indeed, I could justify all these bells and whistles based strictly on my age. Throw in my current physical condition, mental state and emotional inconsistencies and these options appear to be almost mandatory. However, I could be wrong, but I do believe kayaking comes under the realm of “paddling sports,” where by one actually uses a paddle to physically propel one’s craft through the water and currents in quest of fish, game or wildlife observation. But I’m not. So, with that, I had sought during the off season to improve my upper body strength so I co...
