ugg boots wiki Truck drivers upset over new requirement

PORTAGE (WKOW) Truck drivers are upset over a new mandate that requires their every move be tracked. Some are comparing the Electronic Logging Device to an ankle monitor for criminals.”They don’t want you to stop and take a nap,” said Brad Christianson “They just want you to go, go, go. You could be half an hour from home, but you’ll have to stop for a 10 hour break that makes absolutely no sense at all.”The devices tell truck drivers when they need to stop for breaks. Even if they’re not tired. Even if they don’t, they would be breaking the law. Some drivers say it will make drivers try to beat the clock. The devices are expensive,

ugg shoe boots Trump says Democrats are ‘AWOL’ on immigration

Trump is telling Republican party leaders and donors: “The Democrats are AWOL. . They’re missing in action. We have a proposal. We never hear from them.”

The White House has proposed creating a path to citizenship for up to 1.8 million young people living in the county illegally in exchange for billions for a border wall and dramatic cuts to legal immigration.

Democrats have blasted the plan and called it dead on arrival.

Congressional Republicans have gathered at a West Virginia resort in search of a winning election year agenda, facing the notion that the best they have to offer in 2018 may be a recitation of the tax cuts approved in 2017.

The legislators got a pep talk from President Donald Trump reliving passage of the tax bill and highlighting other GOP victories from his first year in office.

But the president offered no clear strategy for resolving the immigration and spending standoff that produced a three day government shutdown in January and threatens a second shutdown next week. And he offered no new policy details on infrastructure, prescription drug prices or other items he’s mentioned as ripe for attention in 2018.

scuffette ugg slippers Trump approves greater FEMA aid for 37 Florida counties

ugg riding boots Trump approves greater FEMA aid for 37 Florida counties

President Donald Trump on Wednesday approved Orange, Seminole, Lake, Osceola, Brevard and Polk counties to receive individual assistance from the federal government.

Qualified residents of 37 Florida counties can access aid including mortgage assistance and unemployment aid. They are also eligible for late fee forgiveness on JP Morgan Chase loan payments.

Osceola County today reported $66 million of damage the largest so far in Central Florida as part of damage estimates being tallied throughout the region aimed at determining federal aid efforts.

On Tuesday, a bi partisan congressional delegation from Central Florida wrote the president urging Orange, Osceola, Lake, Seminole and Polk counties to become eligible the additional layer of assistance.

“Given that the eye of the storm turned more eastern than expected and crossed over Central Florida, [some of] these counties experienced several hours of hurricane force winds, and should receive prompt consideration and approval for individual assistance,” wrote Congressman Darren Soto, D Orlando, in a letter signed by lawmakers including Val Demings, D Orlando; Stephanie Murphy, D Winter Park; and Dennis Ross, R Lakeland.

With the designation, residents also should be able to qualify for forgiveness on late fees being offered by lenders including JP Morgan Chase on its mortgages, auto loans and credit cards. The bank’s program extends through Sept. 24.

The speed and amount of federal aid that comes to Central Florida depends on everything from the amount of debris that gets carted away to how well counties prepared for the event.

Federal Emergency Management Agency officials said they have seen aid from past catastrophes begin to arrive in as little as a few days or as long as a few weeks. With counties throughout Florida seeking federal assistance on the heels of historic flooding in southeast Texas, federal relief could take longer than it has in the past.

Florida counties that had been added to FEMA’s “individual assistance” by Wednesday afternoon included: Brevard, Broward, Charlotte, Citrus, Clay, Collier, DeSoto, Duval, Flagler, Glades, Hardee, Hendry, Hernando, Highlands, Hillsborough, Indian River, Lake, Lee, Manatee, Marion, Martin, Miami Dade, Monroe, Okeechobee, Orange, Osceola, Pasco, Palm Beach, Pinellas, Polk, Putnam, Sarasota, Seminole, St. Johns, and St. Lucie, Sumter, and Volusia. The list was provided by Ross’s office.

Residents of those counties will have access to unemployment benefits, legal assistance, and temporary housing.

To tally damages, property appraisers this week headed to Central Florida homes and businesses that had reported damage to building officials or 911. After reviewing more than 2,399 properties in Orange, Orange County Appraiser Rick Singh estimated $34.4 million in damages. Lake County Property Appraiser Carey Baker estimated $8.5 million of damage.

Osceola County Deputy Property Appraiser Kenny Pennington’s said about $58.7 million of the county’s estimated $66 million in damages hit residential properties and $7.5 million affected commercial buildings. Some of the neighborhoods flooded included Sherwood Forest and the Good Samaritan community,

Property owners who apply for help from FEMA are expected to hear from the agency within 10 days to schedule an inspection that will determine the extent of damage. Assistance details: 1 800 621 3362.

uggs in sale Truck hit panhandler

A pickup struck a man panhandling on a median of Old Pecos Trail at the St. Michael’s Drive intersection and left the scene before police arrived, according to reports released Thursday.

The reports say a witness told officers the truck was traveling at a high speed when it took a wide turn and drove up onto the median, hitting the man Tuesday evening.

A woman who says she witnessed the incident contacted The New Mexican and said a woman driving the truck, as well as a female passenger, got out of the vehicle after the collision and “harassed, punched,

hit and threatened” her and attempted to grab her cellphone as she tried to get help for the injured man. The witness, who said the driver’s breath smelled of alcohol, requested not to be identified because she was threatened by the women.

Asked about the incident Wednesday, Greg Gurul, Santa Fe police spokesman, said police were still investigating the case and characterized it in a email as a “non injury accident hit and run.” He also said,
cheap ugg boots womens Truck hit panhandler
“We have no basis for the claim it was a DWI.”

Yet police reports released Thursday by Gurul say a witness reported the driver of the truck smelled of alcohol and that the man who was struck was transported to the hospital to be checked for potentially broken bones.

The police reports say the driver and passenger switched sides in the truck before fleeing. Another witness followed the truck and told police it pulled into a residential driveway in the 800 block of Old Santa Fe Trail.

Officer Richard O’Leary wrote in a report that he and Officer Brandon Deets knocked on the door of that residence but nobody answered. O’Leary wrote the last known address listed for the truck owner was in the 200 block of Arroyo Hondo Trail.

ugg collection Trump signals wider senior staff shake

McMaster as he works to surround himself with advisers more aligned with his populist agenda and. McMaster as he works to surround himself with advisers more aligned with his populist agenda and freewheeling style.

Inside the West Wing, McMaster appeared poised to soon depart following months of speculation about his standing, people familiar with the matter said.

The shakeups come as Trump enters the second year of his presidency buoyed by economic successes but weighed down by external distractions like the Russia investigation and ethics blunders by members of his Cabinet.

Outside advisers to the President have also felt out potential candidates to replace chief of staff John Kelly, a person who has been approached about the position tells CNN. Kelly departure is seen as less imminent than McMaster and Trump publicly praised his chief of staff on stage in California on Tuesday.

Trump has grown irritated with his embattled Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin and is now making plans to remove him from his post, two sources familiar with the move told CNN. He eyed Energy Secretary Rick Perry as a possible replacement, a person familiar with the matter said.

Earlier, Trump told reporters at the White House he was nearing his staffing ideal.

“I really at a point where we getting very close to having the Cabinet and other things that I want,” Trump told reporters on the South Lawn on Tuesday, moments after announcing he was ousting Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

A senior administration official said a further shake up of senior staff could happen as soon as this week. Other officials suggested a longer timeline, saying Trump could execute changes over the course of the next two months.

The White House didn respond on Tuesday when asked about McMaster standing, and last week press secretary Sarah Sanders said only that “the President national security adviser is General McMaster.”

“He a valued member of the President team and an important part of this process,” Sanders said on Friday.

Time is running short

Inside the White House, speculation has mounted that McMaster time is running short. But the timing of any potential departures has been tightly held, leading to a sense that Trump could tweet at any moment without forewarning to make personnel changes.

A spokesman for the National Security Council did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Aides highlighted Trump mention on Tuesday of Tillerson opposition to scrapping the Iran nuclear deal, a position he shared with McMaster. McMaster helped develop the plan unveiled last year that punted the Iran deal to Congress. Like Tillerson, he has been opposed to withdrawing the US from the plan, but has pressured European allies to make changes to the agreement brokered during the Obama administration.

Current candidates under consideration to replace McMaster include Bolton, the former US ambassador to the United Nations under President George W. Bush; Oracle executive Safra Catz;
ugg boots baby Trump signals wider senior staff shake
National Security Agency Director Admiral Mike Rogers; and Stephen Biegun, a vice president at Ford Motors and a former senior staff member in the George W. Bush administration.

Bolton has met personally with the President several times, including during an Oval Office meeting last week. He has maintained his heavy presence on Fox News over the past week, including over the weekend and last night, praising Trump decision on North Korea and even encouraging a speedier timeline for talks with Kim Jong Un.

Kelly watch

Meanwhile, some allies of the President have begun identifying potential replacements for Kelly, whose strict management style has clashed with Trump more freewheeling preferences. It not clear, however, that Trump himself has held formal conversations with possible chief of staff candidates.

Officials said there is no solid sense of how long Kelly will last in the West Wing, where he brushed up against members of Trump family, including Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump. Kelly traveled with Trump on Tuesday to California, and was by the President side for most of the day as he toured prototypes for a border wall.

Trump hailed his top aide during remarks to US service members at a Marine Corps base outside San Diego, saying the retired Marine general is “doing a great job in Washington.”

But he suggested Kelly preferred life in the military.

“I think he likes what you do better than what he does, but he going a great job. He misses you,” Trump said.

Shulkin in quicksand

Shulkin standing in the administration has been in quicksand for weeks now as his agency devolves into turmoil, and though the White House press secretary maintained just last week that he has done “a great job,” Trump now wants him out.

Trump and his senior aides are frustrated with Shulkin because they believe he has undermined the White House on several occasions and is unwilling to work with other members of his agency who were appointed by the Trump administration, a source familiar tells CNN.

His status as the sole Obama holdover in Trump administration initially did not raise any issues,
ugg boots baby Trump signals wider senior staff shake
people familiar with the situation said. But the events of recent weeks made clear to Trump and his associates the importance of naming their own person to the job.

kids ugg slippers Trump arrives in Texas to reassure Harvey victims and marvel at crowd sizes

cheap real uggs Trump arrives in Texas to reassure Harvey victims and marvel at crowd sizes

Donald Trump touched down in Texas to survey the damage caused by Hurricane Harvey knowing that it involved a difficult political balancing act:don’t appear and potentially suffer the same barrage of criticism George W Bush faced in the wake of hurricane Katrina, do appear and risking affecting rescue efforts with rain still set to hammer the area for another two days.

Mr Trump was quick to praise the efforts of those on the ground during a visit to the town of Corpus Christi one of the cities near the coast that faced the brunt of Harvey while later visiting Austin. The presidential entourage avoided Houston and the surrounding area, where the vast majority of the more than 17,000 who had sought shelter were gathered, with the White House keen to stress that Mr Trump wanted to be “very cautious” not disrupt recovery efforts.

Meeting officials in Corpus Christi Mr Trump wore awhite”USA” cap, with his surname emblazoned on the back it is available on hiswebsite for $40. Accompanying her husband,Melania Trump’s matching cap was emblazoned with the word”Flotus” in upper case First Lady of the United States. At a briefing, Mr Trump made clear he wanted his response to set an example.

“We want to do it better than ever before,” he said.”We want to be looked at in five years, in 10 years from now as, this is the way to do it. This was of epic proportion”.

The President added: “Nobody’s ever seen anything like this and I just want to say that working with the governor [Texas Governor Greg Abbott] and his entire team has been an honour for us”.

Governor Abbott was, in turn, effusive in his praise for Mr Trump and his response, saying he had been in contact with the White House for the past two weeks.

Mr Trump later met a crowd outside a local fire station. “Thank you” he said to applause, “we love you, you are special, we are here to take care of you,” he said. “It’s going well.”

“What a crowd, what a turnout,” he called outto thehundreds of people gathered, although there appeared no expression of sympathy for victims of the storm.

Elsewhere,more than 3,500 rescues had taken place across Houston by Tuesday afternoon, with rising water still a major issue. The US record for rainfall from a tropical storm system was broken at the Mary’s Creek weather station, reaching 49.32 inches. The record had stood since 1978, and with further rain up to 12 more inches in certain parts of the Texas coast expected, officials are preparing for further problems.

At least 15 deaths have been reported, the latest being a policeman driving to work in Houston, while two major dams in the area are either overspilling or close to it. Some of the water from the reservoirs around the dams has had to be vented, flooding neighbouring areas, an unavoidable problem for local officials.

Mr Trump’s visit poses its own potential problems. Law enforcement, medical and other emergency officials are often wary of diverting critical resources to presidential security and logistics while major relief operations are still underway. Presidential visits require ordering hospitals on standby, closing air space and supplementing federal security detail with state and local officers. Some critics had called for the visit to be delayed a few days.

However, it is clear that Mr Trump and his White House staff are wary that he is facing his first major natural disaster and that delaying could mean not coming for months. Mr Bush’s administration never really recovered from the fallout from the devastation of Katrina, the storm that hit New Orleans in 2005. Critics said the rescue effort was bungled. Mr Bushtook a plane over the area,so not to affect rescue efforts,and was pilloried.

Criticism of the Trump’s had started before they even boarded Marine One from the White House. A number of articles appeared criticising the First Lady’s choice of footwear she appeared wearing black stilettos. Ms Trump’s communications director was quick to respond, hitting out at members of the media for being “worried about her shoes” during an “active and ongoing natural disaster”. By the time Ms Trump appeared on the ground in Texas, she was wearing white tennis shoes.

The George R Brown Convention Centre, which had been designated the initial dropping off point, now houses more than 9,000 people and Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner said his office had asked the Federal Emergency Management Agency for assets to allow the city to shelter another 10,000 people.

Other shelters were set up in Dallas, about 250 miles (402 km) to the north, for about 8,000 people, and Austin, 160 miles (258 km) west, to take in 7,000 people.

Karen Haughton said she had been in the convention centre since 11pm on Sunday, after she was rescued from her home as the water reached three feet and was still rising.

“I had neighbours who had a big boat and they were saving people and as they came past me,” she said.”I shouted to them, and they said they’d come back and get me, and they did,” Ms Haughton added.

She said she had been anxious about going to the convention centre memories of the horrors that took place inside New Orlean’s Superdome following Hurricane Katrina, are imprinted in the collective memory. Yet she said the facilities she had found were excellent, given the circumstances. “I’ve no complaints,” she said.

Marcia Chrane was forced to take shelter there after travelling from Dallas to Houston for a Coldplay concert and getting stranded after bus company Greyhound stopped its service. “Things are OK. I am going to be stuck here until the buses start again,” she said.

Kimberley Sowell was part of a group of threewith her son and partner. Theyhad only just arrived. Two hours earlier they had been brought in after being rescued from their apartment in the east of the city. She said the water had destroyed their home, and they had been forced to move into the house of a neighbour.

She said their home was destroyed but was pleased that nobody was hurt. “We’ve not been able to sleep for two days.”

Michael Albert was part of a group of around 40 people made up of seven families who had rescued themselves using two school buses. “The houses got full and we moved to a school. Then we came here,” said the 30 year old.

Stephanie Mata was nursing a four month old baby, Aurora. “It started on Friday. To start with we wanted to stay but then we decided to get out of there because of her,” she said.

There will be many stories like these in the days to come, with storm set to hit Louisiana on Wednesday, a day after the 12th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina whichkilled more than 1,800 people across the state. The National Guard is responding by potentially increasing the number of troops on the ground fivefold, with potentially up to 20,000 to 30,000 troops coming in from other states.

But the question over preparedness will linger. But the extraordinary amount of rainfall and flooding exceeded what state planners could have foreseen.

“So if you’re looking at an event that only occurs every few hundred years, the planning that would have normally occurred for that probably wasn’t here,” he said. “In many cases, the request for assistance, not only for the National Guard but federal forces, may not have been anticipated quickly enough.”

ugg i do Trump meeting with ‘Chuck and Nancy’ is back on ahead of shutdown deadline

(CNN) The on again, off again meeting between President Donald Trump and the top two congressional Democrats is back on, ahead of a Friday deadline to avoid a government shutdown.

In a statement Monday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California, said they would travel to the White House Thursday to meet with Trump and GOP Hill leaders to discuss the spate of year end issues that need to be resolved.

“We’re glad the White House has reached out and asked for a second meeting. We hope the President will go into this meeting with an open mind, rather than deciding that an agreement can’t be reached beforehand,” the two Democrats said in a joint statement, referencing a tweet from Trump that blew up their last scheduled meeting when Trump said he doubted he could reach a deal with “Chuck and Nancy.”

That negative assessment from Trump caused Schumer and Pelosi to abruptly back out of the meeting, which was held without them. Photographers were invited in to take pictures of the empty chairs where they were supposed to sit.

Trump and lawmakers have a long to do list before the end of the year, including wrapping up the GOP led tax reform effort, reaching deals related to keeping the government funded into the new year, and possibly passing two health care bills that are tied to the repeal of the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate, which is part of the Senate passed tax bill.

“We need to reach a budget agreement that equally boosts funds for our military and key priorities here at home including the opioid crisis, pension plans and rural infrastructure,” Schumer and Pelosi said in their statement. “We have to provide funding for community health centers and (the Children’s Health Insurance Program), as well as relief for the millions of Americans still reeling from natural disasters. And we must also come together on a bipartisan deal to pass the DREAM Act along with tough border security measures. There is a bipartisan path forward on all of these items.”

They added, “As negotiations with our Republican counterparts continue, we are hopeful the President will be open to an agreement to address the urgent needs of the American people and keep government open.”

In a TV interview Sunday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell still ecstatic by the Senate’s narrow passage of tax reform early Saturday morning dismissed the notion that the government might shutdown in the next few weeks over disagreements with Democrats.

“It’s just not going to happen,” the Kentucky Republican told ABC News.

McConnell, aides say, is reluctant to permit a shutdown on his watch. A destructive shutdown could raise doubts in the minds of voters about GOP stewardship of Congress and steal positive attention from tax reform, which still has significant hurdles left before Republican leaders hope to send to the President by Christmas.

The GOP led Congress is expected to pass by Friday a two week funding bill to keep the government operating through December 22,
girls ugg Trump meeting with 'Chuck and Nancy' is back on ahead of shutdown deadline
the Friday before Christmas.

Passage of a short term bill will give “the House and Senate time to complete their work on a long term solution,” McConnell said in floor remarks Monday.

If they do, they would likely pass another stopgap bill until early next year, which would give lawmakers time to draft the agreement into legislative text so it can be formally adopted. That bill, aides say, likely would keep the government running through September 30, 2018.

“Nobody should want to see a government shutdown,” Schumer said on the floor Monday, adding that only Trump has suggested, in a tweet, that a government shutdown might be a good way to fix Washington.

Democrats, while in the minority, still have substantial leverage in the talks. That’s because some conservative Republicans in the House may vote against a spending deal, forcing GOP leaders to rely on Democrats to pass it. The same is true in the Senate where 60 votes would be needed for passage. That means Republicans would need the support of at least eight Democrats to get it approved.

But Democrats know they can’t overreach. They could suffer the wrath of voters if they overplay their hand and get blamed for an unnecessary government closure.

Democrats and Republicans remain at loggerheads over two key issues, which if resolved, could lead to a broad year end deal.

The first point of contention is how to raise mandatory budget caps on funding for defense and domestic programs. Republicans are anxious to raise defense spending but Democrats insist that in return domestic programs must get an equal boost.

They are also at odds about what to do about DACA Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals the Obama era program that allows children brought to the US illegally to stay in the country. While there is a bipartisan push to resolve the emotionally charged issued, many Republicans insist any DACA legislation also include robust new border security funding.

“The negotiations are continuing,” said Sen. Dick Durbin, D Illinois, perhaps the Senate’s most vocal advocate for allowing the DACA participants, commonly known as Dreamers, to stay in the US. “We want to make sure we’re setting the stage for getting this done in December before we leave.”

But top Republicans want to push off action on DACA until early next year, because Trump gave Congress until March to act.

“I don’t think the Democrats would be very smart to say they want to shut down the government over a non emergency that we can address anytime between now and March,
girls ugg Trump meeting with 'Chuck and Nancy' is back on ahead of shutdown deadline
” McConnell said in the interview. “That’s a very untenable position.”
