‘Every kid deserves a bike’: 83-year-old Moncton grandmother on a mission

24/02/2019 Posted by admin

At 83 years of age, Barbara Elias feels like a kid every time her feet hit the pedals.

“I feel free. It’s like being in a sports car in slow motion.”

That’s why the Moncton grandmother is on a mission to share that sense of freedom with every child in her community.

In May, she started giving away free bicycles to underprivileged kids in Greater Moncton.

ChangSha Night Net

“I live near a housing corp and there are a lot of poor children there,” Elias said. “I saw a little girl riding a bicycle. She was about 10 years old and she was riding a bike for a five-year-old and her knees were around he ears.

“I said, ‘darling, you need a new bike’ and she said, ‘yes but my daddy went away and my mommy can’t afford one.’”

Elias says she was heartbroken and became determined to find that young girl a bike.

“Every kid deserves a bike and I truly believe that.”

She posted her request on a “Pay it Forward” community Facebook page and, in no time, got a response.

“I asked for a bike and, would you believe it, I got several bikes. So I had to find kids that needed those bikes.”

From then on, she was truly on a roll.

With the help of a local bicycle co-op called La Bikery, Elias turned on her obvious charm and recruited volunteers to tune up her donated rides for free.

“If I see a kid who has gotten their bike stolen, I say, ‘stop crying, guy, come on over and I will give you a bike.’”

Krysta Cowling, who runs the bicycle co-op, often helps Elias refurbish the bicycles she collects.

“The passion that she has… She is just so willing to give. It is really special.”

Elias’ backyard shed is now overflowing with bikes of all shapes and sizes that are destined for proud new owners.

She even takes in helmet donations.

“Kids are not always fussy about wearing a helmet but grandma Barbara says yes. You want your bike? You’ve got to wear a helmet and it works.”

She’s been able to match 80 kids with bikes so far. She says seeing their faces makes life a beautiful ride.

“This is amazing. A 12-year-old kid, a little girl, never had a bike in her life and she got a bike. That’s freedom.”

Maryland cop accused of threatening to arrest woman for sitting on picnic table

24/02/2019 Posted by admin

A Maryland couple is asking for an apology after a local police officer allegedly threatened one of them with arrest for sitting on a picnic table.

Ronshell and Ernest Shockley were watching their 13-year-old son participate in a youth basketball game at a local park in the town of Berlin, Md. earlier this year when, they say, Lt. Jeffrey Lawson of the Berlin Police Department harassed Ronshell for where she was sitting.

“When he got within arm’s reach of my wife, he put his finger in her face and said, ‘Sit down on that bench right,” said Ernest in an interview with WBAL.

The Shockleys said they were troubled by the officer’s tone and approach during the incident.

Ronshell, a local business owner, said she complied with his demand and asked him what rule or law she was violating.

“The next thing out of his mouth was, ‘Leave the park or I will arrest you,’” said Ernest. “I’m like, ‘You’re going to arrest us? Arrest us for what?’”

Signs listing the park rules do not mention or prohibit sitting on picnic tables, according to WBAL.

The couple said Lt. Lawson then called for backup.

“I was shocked. I was embarrassed,” said Ronshell. “I was humiliated in front my children, my neighbourhood.”

The couple went to the Berlin police station to file a complaint but were allegedly told that because the chief wasn’t in the office, they wouldn’t be able to file their complaint.

Ronshell and Ernest then went to the home of Police Chief Arnold Downing to find him and were eventually able to file their complaint at the station.

Nearly four months after the incident, the Shockleys received a response from Downing.

“The investigation was completed by an independent agency (Worcester County Sheriff’s Office) which sustained that a violation of Berlin Police Department policy had occurred during the incident. The Berlin Police Department has taken corrective action with the officer involved.”

WBAL reported the police department wouldn’t disclose what the corrective action was citing policies against the public information on police officers.

Global News reached out to the Sheriff’s Office for more information on their findings.

Lt. Edward Schreier at the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office called it a “personnel matter” and refused to discuss the issue.

“I was at a public facility, minding my own business, not violating any laws. He [Lt. Lawson] decided to harass me,” said Ronshell. “We want him reprimanded and we deserve an apology.

Convicted Bosma killer and aviation empire heir Dellen Millard is broke, court hears

24/02/2019 Posted by admin

TORONTO —; A convicted killer who is heir to an aviation empire told court on Friday that has no money to pay for his defence in two upcoming murder trials.

Dellen Millard, who was convicted of first-degree murder along with Mark Smich in the death of Tim Bosma in June, told court he has filed for legal aid.

Millard was in court as a judge tries to expedite the process for his legal aid application to ensure the two scheduled trials aren’t delayed.

Smich and Millard are scheduled to go to trial next September on first-degree murder charges in the death of Toronto woman Laura Babcock.

Millard is also charged with first-degree murder in the death of his father, Wayne Millard —; CEO of Millardair until his death in 2012 —; with that trial scheduled for March 2018.

Justice John McMahon held Friday’s court hearing to seek clarity on Millard’s finances because the convicted killer has yet to hire a lawyer for both upcoming trials.

Court heard Millard has a 50-per-cent stake in Millardair and Millard Properties, with his father’s estate owning the balance.

Those companies are now in court-appointed receivership, which means their assets are effectively frozen.

The Bosma family has filed a $14-million lawsuit against Millard and Smich, but court heard that process remains at a standstill because of the receivership proceedings.

Bosma vanished in May 2013 after he took two strangers for a test drive in a truck he was trying to sell online. His remains were found in an animal incinerator – dubbed The Eliminator – that police located on Millard’s farm in southwestern Ontario.

A Hamilton jury found Millard and Smich guilty of first-degree murder.

Millardair was founded in 1963 by Dellen Millard’s grandfather, Carl, who turned it into a multi-million dollar business – first shipping cargo and later as a passenger air transport service. After Carl died in 2006, his son Wayne took over.

Dellen Millard took control of Millardair after his father’s death, which was initially deemed a suicide. According to documents filed in commercial court, Millard is the beneficiary of his father’s estate.

However, Millard cannot inherit his father’s estate because he is charged with his murder.
