Woman rescued in Sierra Nevada knew

Carson City, Nev. — A Nevada woman who survived six frigid days in the mountains said in an interview aired Monday that she had asked her boyfriend not to venture out for help after their Jeep became mired in mud on a back road. Paula Lane said she told Roderick Clifton they should stay with the vehicle and ride out the storm together. Instead, Clifton gave her a wave and walked away. “I knew I was never going to see him again,” Lane, 46, said on NBC’s “Today” show. Lane, 46, was still recovering from frostbite at a Carson City hospital. She was rescued Dec. 5 by her brother, Gary Lane,

Hmmm... barricaded road...get stuck... leave the vehicle and the GF behind. All of it, sadly, avoidable.

That almost always happens. It is better to stay where there is a little shelter (vehicle) that go out totally exposed. Plus, they could have helped keep each other warm while waiting. Geez

Abolutely avoidable. Don´t go beyond the barricade. The enviro-weenies love to offroaders do that so they can argue for closing even more land... Sad, but happens all to frequently this time of year.

Lots of bad thinking there....if you´re off roading in the mountains in winter, take a survival kit..they are cheap enough and easy to find. Why didn´t they make a shelter in the woods (see Boy Scout manual) and ride it out? Why did he leave the Jeep? Why were they on a barricaded road??? I mean the barricade was put there for reason, right?

Definitely Darwin Award material.

It probably looked like fun on TV. The People´s Republic of California is full of these folks. Signs, barricades, and rules are for everyone else. It´s a hell of a price to pay for ego.

Probably didn´t have enough money for good tires after scraping together the money to purchase an 89 Jeep. Sad story, bad planning and a number of bad decisions.

People tend to believe the
TV commercials about the abilities of the vehicles they buy. I can tell you, after many years personal experience with "out back" vehicles, they are not anywhere near capable of the things they show them doing in commercials. And, because of the TV hype, people die.

Very sad. I miss the Sierra Nevadas. They´re beautiful in the winter. They´re deadly if you stray off established roads, ski off established paths or otherwise try to cheat nature. A 1989 FWD vehicle doesn´t sound very durable, either.

Russia and Ukraine Agree on Steps
to End Crisis

Posted By: BaseballFan- 4/17/2014 5:16:56 PM     Post Reply
Russia and Ukraine struck a deal Thursday to end unrest in eastern Ukraine stoked by pro-Russian militants, Secretary of State John Kerry said. The militants must refrain from violence, lay down their illegal weapons and return seized buildings to their rightful owners, Kerry said. In return, Ukraine agreed to offer amnesty to protesters who had not committed capital crimes. Kerry called the agreement “a good day’s work,” but warned that the United States would impose further sanctions on Russia if it didn’t see progress soon. “None of us leave here with the sense that the job is done because the

DENVER — Authorities say a Wyoming college student who jumped to his death from a Denver hotel balcony ate more than the recommended serving of a marijuana cookie. Police reports released Thursday said 19-year-old Levy Thamba Pongi consumed a little more than one cookie that his friend purchased from a pot shop. The reports say a clerk told his friends to cut it into six pieces and eat one piece at a time. The friends did so, but it´s unclear from the reports whether Pongi heard the advice.

Banana Republicans: New Head Of
Virginia GOP on Eric Cantor’s Payroll
PJ Media, by David Steinberg    Original Article
Posted By: BaseballFan- 4/15/2014 3:11:20 PM     Post Reply
On a local website co-managed by Shaun Kenney, the newly appointed executive director of the Virginia GOP, a colleague of Kenney’s admitted last night that Kenney’s political fundraising and consulting firm is employed by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. Cantor is now campaigning to retain his seat in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District. Cantor’s challenger for the GOP primary on June 10 — Dave Brat — is politically on Cantor’s right, and is thus receiving national interest from conservative/Tea Party groups that are disappointed with Cantor’s record as majority leader. The magnitude of the revelation can not be overstated: GOP voters

Nahshon Shelton didn’t want to pay the 22-cent tax on his $1.79 two-liter of Pepsi on Saturday afternoon, Chicago police said. So he allegedly pulled a blue-steel Intratec .22-caliber semi-automatic handgun out of his Gucci satchel inside the convenience store in the 4000 block of West Madison Street where they tried to make him pay it -- and he threatened to kill everyone there, a prosecutor said. This "is my neighborhood, I’m tax exempt!" he would later allegedly tell the cops, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. “Man, you know what, I’ll keep it real. I had to put them in their

Hillary Clinton was the planned keynote speaker at the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy in San Diego on April 11 - but she´s cancelled her visit in the midst of planned protests from San Diego locals and military families. Protestors organized by "The Difference Matters" do not want the former U.S. Secretary of State to come because of Clinton´s role in the Benghazi scandal. "She is not welcome here in San Diego by so many of us. We don´t want her here," said Jan Iverson, a local mother and protestor. (Snip) Clinton´s office says she changed plans because of

DENVER – Denver Public Schools administrators believe they are the first school district in the nation to actively seek out people who were initially brought to the United States illegally to now teach in the classroom. "We look forward to increasing the number of great teachers who are in our classrooms and who are also role models for children who have similar cultural backgrounds and life experiences," Tom Boasberg, superintendent of Denver Public Schools, said. (Snip) But, Denver has a significant population of students who are undocumented, and Boasberg believes this effort will help serve those families.

U.S. Sen. Angus King, an independent from Maine, said he’s considering caucusing with Republicans if they win a majority of seats in the Senate during the midterm elections. Shortly after he voted with Republicans on Wednesday against the Paycheck Fairness Act, a piece of legislation that Democrats have prioritized ahead of the November elections, King was asked whether he might align with Republicans. Since he was elected in 2012, the two-term Maine governor has caucused with Democrats and voted with them on most issues. “I’ll make my decision at the time based on what I think is best for Maine,”

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

Thirty-seven percent think Obama lies “most of the time,” while another 24 percent say he lies “some of the time.” Twenty percent of voters say “only now and then” and 15 percent “never.” Click here for the poll results.
