Eighty-year-old business Appleby’s bakery, based in Salisbury, will close this month so that owner Mark Appleby can have some time off “while I’m still young enough to enjoy it”.“They have been really nice people to meet every day and it has been a privilege to serve them,” said owner Mark Appleby of his customers. He went on to say that it had been a “difficult decision” to close the shop, but that he wanted to enjoy some time off.He admitted that he had “hardly ever taken a holiday”, despite turning 60 this year, but that he had mixed feelings about it. “We have been here so long. I have been brought up here. My whole life has been bound up with this business.“It has been a really difficult decision and not one I have taken lightly. We have had some customers coming in for 50 years and new customers coming from all the office blocks of businesses. They have been so understanding about us closing and have been wishing us well.”Family businessAppleby’s grandfather, Sidney, took over the bakery business from its previous owner in 1932. Three generations of the family have been involved since then, and Mark Appleby himself has worked there for about 45 years – the bakery still uses the same ovens that were installed in the shop in the 1920s.Of his time as a baker Appleby said: “I started helping out as I kid and enjoyed doing it. There was never any pressure to do it and I carried on.”He added: “Our shop is kind of like a pub – everyone knows each other and there is a bit of banter. I will miss the interaction with customers. We are shutting on our terms, and I would just like to thank everyone – the customers, staff, friends and family.”
Court modifies Rules of Criminal Procedure Appointed lawyers for defendants facing misdemeanor or municipal charges cannot always be dismissed even if it’s certified a conviction will not bring jail time.The Supreme Court made modifications to Rule of Criminal Procedure December 5 on that issue and that also affected pretrial motions, witness attendance, and subpoenas.Comments on the biennial rule amendment package from the Bar’s Rules of Criminal Procedure Committee focused on the misdemeanor representation issue. The court had asked the panel to file a supplemental report after initial comments were received.The court approved changes to Rule 3.111 and new Rule 3.994 to address appointed counsel. It allows appointed counsel for indigent defendants to be dismissed in misdemeanor and municipal code cases if no jail time will be imposed if convicted.But the court also set other conditions, including that the defendant must not currently be incarcerated, since dismissing counsel frequently causes a delay in starting the trial, and leaves the defendant in custody without counsel. Also, the defendant must be represented if probation could be imposed after a conviction and if violating that probation could result in incarceration.The court said those changes were necessary to comply with its recent rulings and with an opinion from the U.S. Supreme Court.On pretrial motions, the court added a note to follow Rule 3.190, which says the court may allow the case to be submitted to the jury and withhold ruling on the merits of a motion to suppress made during trial and on the motion for judgement for acquittal. If the defendant is convicted, the judge may then consider the motion to suppress along with a renewed motion for acquittal or a motion for a new trial.Rule 3.361 on witness attendance and subpoenas was amended to simplify the rule. “These changes provide a single contempt provision for violation of any provision of rule 3.361,” the opinion said. “The changes also clarify that any subpoena issued by an attorney of record of the clerk of court is enforceable through the court’s contempt power and that the attendance requirement for subpoenas is applicable to the production of evidence as well as testimony.”The opinion is Amendments to the Florida Rules of Criminal Procedure, case no. SC02-230. The full opinion text and changes to the rules can be found on the court’s Web site, www.flcourts.org. January 1, 2003 Regular News Court modifies Rules of Criminal Procedure
3News 27 February 2015A new study by scientists at Oxford University shows depression is responsible for 46,000 violent crimes in Britain a year, including murder, sexual assault and robbery.Experts undertook a huge study that discovered depressed people are three times more likely to commit a violent offence than the general population.The study looked at 47,000 people who were diagnosed with depression in Sweden and compared them with people who were not suffering from the mental illness.Researchers found that the three-fold risk even remained after allowing for a previous history of violence, socioeconomic background, substance abuse and previous criminality. &amp;lt;a href=”http://ad.au.doubleclick.net/jump/3news.co.nz/homepage;sz=300×250;key-values;tile=2;ord=123456789?” target=”_blank”&amp;gt;&amp;lt;img src=”http://ad.au.doubleclick.net/ad/3news.co.nz/homepage;sz=300×250;tile=2;ord=123456789?” width=”300″ height=”250″ border=”0″ alt=”Ad” /&amp;gt;&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt;Professor Seena Fazel of the university said: “This isn’t something that is talked about. We think the link between depression and violence has been neglected until now. The more symptoms they have the stronger the link becomes.“The most common crime is assault, but there are sexual assaults and murders.”http://www.3news.co.nz/world/depression-linked-to-crime-in-new-study-2015022707#axzz3T06cwm7g
Jansen’s strikeout of Hernan Perez in the 11th was his 36th of the season without having allowed a walk all year, setting a major league mark.Both teams combined for 42 strikeouts.But Bellinger had the biggest hit after lining a 1-2 fastball from Feliz (1-5) into the right-field bleachers to break the 1-1 tie. Yasmani Grandal had tied the game with one out in the ninth by lining a 3-1 fastball from closer Corey Knebel over the wall in right-center. Lost in the late-inning power surge was the duel between starting pitchers Kershaw and Jimmy Nelson. Domingo Santana had the only run off Kershaw, hitting a 1-0 fastball down the middle of the plate deep to left-center to ending a stretch of 20 in a row retired by the lefty. It was a rare mistake in a game in which Kershaw fanned a season-high 14, one off his career high. MILWAUKEE >> Cody Bellinger homered in the 12th inning off Milwaukee Brewers reliever Neftali Feliz, salvaging a 2-1 win Friday for the Los Angeles Dodgers on a night when ace left-hander Clayton Kershaw recorded his 2,000th strikeout. Kenley Jansen (3-0) pitched two scoreless innings for the win, stranding the potential tying run at third with one out in the speedy Jonathan Villar by striking out Orlando Arcia looking and getting Travis Shaw to pop out to short. The Dodgers pulled out a win and a couple impressive mound milestones, too. Their pitchers set a franchise record with 26 strikeouts, breaking the previous mark of 22 set on Aug. 8, 1972 in a 19-inning loss to Cincinnati . Nelson was just as effective for the Brewers, tying a career high with 11 strikeouts and allowing five hits over eight strong innings. Kershaw counterKershaw recorded his 2,000th strikeout in 1,837 2/3 career innings. The Dodgers said he was the third-fastest pitcher in major league history to reach the milestone. Pedro Martinez reached the plateau in 1,715 1/3 innings, and Randy Johnson was next at 1,734 innings.Trainer’s roomDodgers manager Dave Roberts said that left hander Alex Wood (shoulder) could start throwing by the end of the weekend, and that tests on Wood’s AC joint came back negative. Wood might return for the Dodgers’ series next weekend at home against the Reds, Roberts said. … Tests on left hander Adam Liberatore (forearm) revealed no nerve or ligament damage, and Roberts said the reliever would probably be sidelined a couple weeks after going on the 10-day DL on Wednesday.The Brewers Ryan Braun is running on a treadmill for the first time since going on the DL for a left calf injury, though the outfielder says there is no timetable for his return. Braun went on the 10-day DL on May 26, the second time he had been sidelined this year for the injury. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
Chelsea have held talks with Roma over a potential deal for Petr Cech, according to Italian media reports.It was reported this week that Roma are interested in the 32-year-old goalkeeer, who has been linked with several clubs after losing his place to Thibaut Courtois.And Il Tempo say preliminary discussions between the two clubs over a possible move for Cech have progressed well.On Friday, Goal.com reported that Chelsea had snubbed an approach from Fulham for Mark Schwarzer – because of the apparent possibility that Cech will leave.Schwarzer, who recently turned 42, left Fulham in 2013 after five years at Craven Cottage and joined the Blues as back-up keeper.The Australian stood in for Cech last season and is now third choice, with Thibaut Courtois establishing himself as number one.Fulham were reported to have tried to take Schwarzer on loan for the rest of the season.Blues boss Jose Mourinho is said to have been reluctant to let him go as Cech’s departure would then leave Chelsea without experienced cover for Courtois.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook

Star TribuneFour off-duty police officers on post at the July 9 Minnesota Lynx WNBA basketball game quit their positions after seeing the players’ T-shirts, which demanded “justice and accountability.” The message was made in the wake of the police shooting deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile last week. Their deaths reportedly led to the Dallas shooting, in which five officers were killed, Atlanta Black Star reported.According to the Star Tribune, the four team captains – Seimone Augustus, Rebekkah Brunson, Maya Moore and Lindsay Whalen – donned the shirts to honor victims lost in last week’s events. The group held a press conference in Target Center explaining the wardrobe was chosen to encourage an end to racial profiling and continued wearing the T-shirts during their warm up that night.“In the wake of the tragedies that have continued to plague our society, we have decided it’s important to take a stand and raise our voices,” Brunson said in the conference. “Racial profiling is a problem. Senseless violence is a problem. The divide is way too big between our communities and those who have vowed to protect and serve us.”Four off-duty police officers left the job when they saw the black shirts, which read “Change starts with us, justice and accountability” on the front. Philando Castile and Alton Sterling’s names were on the back with a Dallas Police Department emblem and “Black Lives Matter.”Star TribuneLynx coach Cheryl Reeve supported her team members’ political action.“In order to enact change, when you see an injustice, you can’t stand idly by,” she told Lynx Radio Network. “I think it was very thoughtful of them and, as usual, I’m very proud of them.”Minneapolis Police Federation president Lt. Bob Kroll backed the officers who walked out.“I commend them for it,” he told the Tribune.He added the four officers removed themselves from working future games, but he did not know who they were.“Others said they heard about it and they were not going to work Lynx games,” the police union head added.Kroll accused Lynx players of perpetuating “false narratives” since 2014, as some allegations of police misconduct leading to Black deaths were denied.“Rushing to judgment before the facts are in is unwarranted and reckless,” he said before claiming only four officers worked the game because the team has “such a pathetic draw.”However, Saturday’s game in Minneapolis saw more than 7,600 fans in attendance.
