Charles vonRosenberg, recién electo Obispo provisional de la Iglesia Episcopal en Carolina del Sur, promete durante la reunión del 26 de enero en la iglesia episcopal de La Gracia [Grace Episcopal Church] en Charleston, C.S., “guardar y cumplir, hasta el máximo de mi capacidad, las responsabilidades y obligaciones de este cargo, esforzándome en todo por ser un fiel pastor del rebaño de Cristo”. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg para ENS.[Episcopal News Service – Charleston, Carolina del Sur] Reunidos en una ciudad a la que apodan la Ciudad Santa debido a la tolerancia religiosa de sus fundadores y en una iglesia que ha sobrevivido a la guerra de Secesión, a grandes tormentas y a un terremoto, los episcopales de Carolina del Sur se enfrentan a su futuro.Los episcopales leales de la zona inmediata a lo que se conoce como la franja costera o baja [Lowcountry] de Carolina del Sur se reunieron el 26 de enero en la iglesia episcopal de La Gracia, la cual estaba adornada de flores y repleta de gente. Muchos participantes expresaron el deseo de que hubiese una recuperación y un nuevo comienzo.La jornada se inició con la Santa Eucaristía, durante la cual la obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori le dijo a la congregación en su sermón que “todos tenemos una responsabilidad de ser pastores, de ayudar a otros a encontrar su camino a través de las puertas de la vida abundante”.Refiriéndose al pasaje del Buen Pastor en el evangelio de Juan, ella instó a los episcopales que se encuentren con personas que han dejado la Iglesia Episcopal “a considerar que algunas de las ovejas pueden pensar que están escuchando la voz del Buen Pastor”.“También algunos sencillamente están exhaustos.  ¿Qué pasa con las ovejas que no están en el rebaño, que no saben que han de hallar un festín, descanso para el cuerpo y el alma y compañeros dispuestos a enfrentarse a los dictados de árbitros mezquinos o de lobos disfrazados de ovejas?Jefferts Schori contó la historia del piloto de un planeador a quien las autoridades locales acusaron de volar demasiado cerca de una planta de energía nuclear y luego lo arrestaron, pese a carecer de autoridad para hacerlo. Ella dijo que esa historia “es una muestra de las actitudes que hemos visto aquí y en muchas otras partes”.“Alguien decide que conoce la ley y sobrepasa cualquier autoridad que pueda frenarlo para dictar el destino de otros que pueden ser de hecho obedientes a la ley —y con frecuencia una ley para la cual este tirano local no es el juez”, agregó.“La mayoría de nosotros no vive en un mundo donde una sola persona es el árbitro último —porque, una y otra vez, hemos descubierto que las mejores decisiones se toman en comunidad con adecuado equilibrio de poderes”, dijo Jefferts Schori. “El poder asumido por una sola figura de autoridad con frecuencia es una receta para el abuso, la tiranía y la corrupción”.Sin embargo, agregó, “el debate es menos sobre quién tiene la razón y quién se equivoca en medio de las actuales controversias”.“Tiene más que ver con la manera en que lidiamos con los que discrepan: las otras ovejas del rebaño y la variedad de pastores que nos rodean”, afirmó.Haciendo notar que “el festín de Dios no precisa señales de exclusión”, Jefferts Schori dijo: “La mesa del banquete está servida con abundancia para todos, aunque resulta difícil participar del festín si uno está ocupado controlando la entrada”.La obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori corresponde al saludo de Hank Mengedoht, de 6 años, mientras su hermano Teddy, de 8, los observa, durante una recepción con ella el 25 de enero en la iglesia episcopal de La Gracia en Charleston, C.S. La madre de los niños, Katherine, dijo que ella y su marido, Dan, trajeron al evento a los niños y a Georgia, su hermanita de 20 meses, para “mostrar su apoyo” al liderazgo de la Iglesia Episcopal. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg para ENS.Ella suscitó el aplauso y una ovación de pie al concluir su sermón diciendo que Jesús ya estaba a cargo de la entrada “y la consigna es: ¡Vengan todos. Vengan al festín!’”.El texto completo del sermón se encuentra aquí.Más tarde, en el curso de la reunión, la Rda. Gay Clark Jennings, presidente de la Cámara de Diputados, le dijo a la asamblea que “la Cámara de Diputados y toda la Iglesia está apoyándolos en oración mientras ustedes renuevan, reorganizan, refrescan, reconstituyen y, ciertamente, resucitan la Iglesia Episcopal en Carolina del Sur”.Jennings le sugirió a los participantes: “cuando pueda parecer como si la gran amplitud de la convicción, de la experiencia y de la costumbre entre los episcopales amenazara aplastar vuestros anhelos de unidad y de claridad”, recuerden la reunión del 26 de enero y “la comunión de los santos que ha tenido lugar ante ustedes”.“Espero que estarán convencidos, como yo lo estoy, que nuestra amplitud anglicana es nuestro don particular de Dios y una gran bendición para la Iglesia Episcopal en Carolina del Sur”, dijo. “Sigan la vía media anglicana, y ella les llevará entre los extremos en compañía de cristianos de todas las tendencias y de todos los dones del Espíritu”.El texto completo de sus palabras se encuentra aquí.El orden del díaDelegados clérigos y laicos de nueve parroquias, 10 misiones y ocho “parroquias leales” tomaron asiento para la reunión. La expresión “parroquias leales” se refiere a las congregaciones en que algunos, pero no todos, los miembros han seguido al obispo Mark Lawrence fuera de la Iglesia Episcopal. Entre más de 600 asistentes inscritos también se encontraban los miembros de cuatro “comunidades de culto” que están en el proceso de organizarse, así como miembros de otras congregaciones que están sopesando su permanencia en la Iglesia Episcopal.Un cartel afuera de la iglesia episcopal de La Gracia en Charleston, C.S., que muestra el nuevo nombre adoptado por los episcopales leales en esa zona del estado, refleja la prohibición de que el grupo use el escudo de la diócesis. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg para ENS.Jefferts Schori declaró que había quórum y el primer punto del orden del día fue actuar con lo que el abogado Thomas Tisdale llamó “sobrada cautela y con el deseo de obedecer una orden de restricción temporal del 23 de enero que le impide al grupo usar el escudo diocesano y los nombres “La Iglesia Protestante Episcopal en la Diócesis de Carolina del Sur”, “Diócesis de Carolina del Sur” y “La Diócesis Episcopal de Carolina del Sur”.El grupo convino en usar el nombre “la Iglesia Episcopal en Carolina del Sur” en lugar de lo que Tisdale, más tarde electo canciller, llamó “lo que creemos que es nuestro verdadero y legítimo nombre”.Hay una audiencia fijada para el 1 de febrero sobre el mandato de la jueza de circuito de Carolina del Sur Diane S. Goodstein de prohibir a cualquier “organización, asociación o entidad individual el uso de nombres y marcas registradas que fueron reivindicadas por Lawrence y otros 24 líderes asociados con él. Más información acerca de la demanda legal se encuentra aquí.Los delegados en la iglesia de La Gracia eligieron por aclamación a Charles VonRosenberg, obispo jubilado de la Diócesis de Tennessee Oriental, como su obispo provisional. Jefferts Schori instaló a vonRosenberg en el curso de la reunión y le transfirió a él la dirección de la misma.Un obispo provisional tiene toda la autoridad y responsabilidad de un obispo diocesano, pero suele servir por un período de tiempo determinado y se concibe como un puente hasta el momento en que la diócesis esté en disposición de elegir a un obispo diocesano o a tomar otras decisiones respecto a su futuro.Los episcopales en Carolina del Sur necesitaban un nuevo líder porque Jefferts Schori declaró el 5 de diciembre que Lawrence había renunciado a sus órdenes. Ella y su Consejo de Asesores estuvieron de acuerdo en que, en un alocución en la convención especial diocesana del 17 de noviembre, Lawrence había dicho que la diócesis había abandonado la Iglesia Episcopal un mes antes, el 17 de octubre, cuando ella había restringido su ministerio luego de que la Junta Disciplinaria para los Obispos le certificara que él había abandonado la Iglesia Episcopal “por una abierta renuncia de la disciplina de la Iglesia”.La Rda. Gay Clark Jennings, presidente de la Cámara de Diputados, conversa con dos mujeres el 25 de enero durante una recepción en la iglesia episcopal de La Gracia en Charleston, C.S. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg para ENS.El día en que se anunció la decisión de la junta, el Comité Permanente de la diócesis dijo que esa decisión “había provocado la activación de dos preexistentes resoluciones corporativas de la diócesis, las cuales simultáneamente desafiliaban a la diócesis de la Iglesia Episcopal y convocaban a una convención especial”. Lawrence solicitó y recibió ratificación de esa ruptura en la reunión del 17 de noviembre.En consecuencia, el resto de los episcopales [de la diócesis] necesitaban un nuevo obispo y una nueva nómina de líderes laicos y clericales, los cuales también fueron electos el 26 de enero.VonRosenberg, de 65 años, ha tenido nexos durante mucho tiempo con Carolina del Sur. Él su esposa, Annie, ya viven en la comunidad de Daniel Island de Charleston, donde él se jubiló luego de servir durante 12 años como obispo de Tennessee Oriental. Desde octubre, él ha servido con carácter voluntario, junto con el obispo jubilado John Buchanan, como asesor del comité directivo que se creó en octubre.“Estamos aquí un grupo de personas comprometidas con la Iglesia Episcopal, algunos tristemente desplazados de sus hogares espirituales, otros descubriendo una nueva vida en momentos apasionantes, y un obispo que creía que se había jubilado” —le dijo vonRosenberg a los reunidos. “Estamos aquí enfrentándonos a un futuro incierto y dependiendo de la fuerza y apoyo de otros y confiando en la gracia de Dios para el mañana que nos aguarda”.Él instó a reconstruir la Iglesia Episcopal en Carolina del Sur sobre el fundamento de lo que llamó las “virtudes crísticas” de humildad y amor, y que empiezan por buscar el perdón “por nuestro fracaso en lograr la unidad cristiana en nuestros tiempos”.vonRosenberg le dijo a los participantes que “como seguidores de Jesucristo, debemos reconocer que otros cristianos sinceros —ex episcopales— han escogido un camino diferente al nuestro. El suyo es una senda comprometida con Jesús tal como ellos entienden esa fe”.El texto completo de la alocución de vonRosenberg se encuentra aquí.En una posterior conferencia de prensa, el obispo sugirió que la recuperación podría comenzar cuando, en lugar de opinar ignorándose mutuamente, las personas empezaran a encontrar esperanzas en sus anteriores relaciones.“Mi esperanza”, dijo, es que la gente se dé cuenta de que aquellos que tal vez están en una posición diferente en este momento no son demonios, no dejan de ser cristianos, sino que han elegido un camino diferente”.El obispo dijo “en llegar a este punto y en avenirse a dialogar unos con otros como pueblo, es en lo que radica nuestra esperanza y donde creo yo que comienza la reconciliación”.En verdad, no todos los que asistieron a la reunión del 26 de enero, o de las casi 500 personas que asistieron a una recepción con la obispa primada la noche antes, han decidido adonde van a parar.Cheves Leland, delegada a la reunión de la iglesia episcopal de Santiago Apóstol [St. James] en Santee, le dijo a ENS que su congregación esta reflexionando respecto a su filiación. Santiago Apóstol es “una pequeña congregación en un pueblito” cuyos miembros no están todos de acuerdo respecto a qué rumbo seguir, afirmó.Ella con frecuencia ha votado contrario al otro delegado de la congregación. “Decimos que nuestros votos están divididos, pero nosotros no”.“Realmente no queremos que se produzca una ruptura y que alguna gente se vaya”, agregó. “Creo que hay un lugar para todos en la Iglesia y con Dios”.Julie Walters, directora del ministerio de los niños en La Gracia, sabe que ella está en la Iglesia Episcopal, tal como sus antepasados estuvieron hace seis generaciones cuando ayudaron a fundar La Gracia. Pero se encuentra enfrentada con sus vecinos episcopales. Ha tenido que defenderse “en la tienda de víveres y en la cancha de tenis” de acusaciones de otros episcopales que ella dice que “sólo escuchan una parte” de la historia.“Eso me resulta chocante”, dice, y agrega. “Odio este pleito más que ninguna otra cosa”.El pleito, dice ella, no es por cambios litúrgicos ni por distintas interpretaciones de la Escritura.“Es un pleito por quebrantar una regla… tuvimos la misma lucha respecto a la participación de las mujeres” en el liderazgo de la Iglesia, dijo Walters, cuya madrina, en sus propias palabras, fue la primera mujer en la junta parroquial de la Gracia y resultó blanco del desacuerdo.Elizabeth Jones le dijo a ENS el 25 de enero que ella tenía un sencillo deseo para el fin de semana: “que éste fuera el comienzo de la recuperación”.– La Rda.

Canned skunk

first_img October 8, 2017 at 5:46 pm Dear Mama Mia, Sure, I know everything and I am a veritable wealth of mis-information. I expect that what killed off the skunks was a terminal case of road-kill-itis. Florida was the first state in the union to outlaw the steel, leghold trap. It isn’t so much the steel traps that are cruel, it is the people that use them. There was a day when trapping was a way of life, it was how some people made a living but not so much any more. A wise man once said, “every creature is better alive than dead, men moose and pine trees, and he who understands it aright will rather preserve its life it than destroy it.” Chaz Reply It irks me to know that the National Wildlife Refuges allow these steel claw leg traps to be used, and the animals caught in them suffer horribly, and die a slow painful death, and these federal lands are set aside for the animals as a refuge, right….. Yeah, probably lots of animals are getting “road-kill-it is”….I have seen several black bears hit and lying on the sides of the roads. I guess that is the price of “progress”. Thanks for your response, Mr. Towne. As always, Mama Mia charles towne Reply October 13, 2017 at 4:16 pm October 9, 2017 at 8:29 pm October 12, 2017 at 6:02 pm What is the remedy to remove skunk smell if a person gets sprayed by the stinky? Are there any skunks here in Florida? Just wondering….. Mama Mia Mama Mia Mama Mia charles towne Charles Towne is first and foremost a Christian.

He has adopted the philosophy that to Live fully, laugh uproariously, love passionately, and learn like there is no tomorrow, is a formula for a long and joy-filled life. Reply October 8, 2017 at 5:56 pm Mama Mia Dear Mama Mia, right you are, animals need our protection but what I find disturbing is the fact that so many people care nothing for people and while fighting for animal rights. Adolph Hitler loved his dogs and would weep if one of them became ill and yet he was responsible for incredible cruelty to so many people, That seems so out of balance to me. Let us help our community to be a safe place for all of God’s children. Chaz You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here October 12, 2017 at 12:46 pm Be still and know I am God, act like a tree! Reminds me of when I was a child and grandpa took me in the woods and taught me to ” sit still and shut up! “! Sometimes there is a lot to be learned from stillness! Right you are, Mr. Towne. I have mountains of mail I get from animal non-profits delivered to my mailbox daily. I am sure the mailman hates me. I read all the about the animal issues locally, state wide, federally, and internationally. There are so many depressing things, that are hard to read, regarding how humans, use, and abuse the various animals on this earth. I send in what I can to help them, and sometimes get so angry, I cry over what I read, and pictures I view. I know these groups are not just trying to get cash donations, as they are truly trying to change the world, but it is overwhelming. I am thankful some people truly care about animals, and don’t want to harm them. Reply October 9, 2017 at 6:18 pm 12 COMMENTS I have never seen a skunk in the wild anywhere, and I don’t think I want to either…LOL People trap them in steel claw traps, is what I understand, in other states. So cruel. I detest that sort of thing on any of God’s creatures. Plus any kind of animal can fall victim to getting caught in those cruel traps. Do you know what kind of disease wiped the striped skunks out here in Central Florida? I see armadillos around town here, digging in yards sometimes, and have seen them as road kill. I understand they carry leprosy. I used to think armadillos were just a Texas critter….LOL Thanks for the outdoorsman’s prayer Mr. Towne, and I liked the part in the prayer about folks are sometimes like skunks…..hahahahaha! I used to hear people refer to skunks as pole-cats, are they same? I know you know all this stuff….LOL October 13, 2017 at 9:23 am Reply The Anatomy of Fear Mama Mia Reply Reply TAGSCharles TowneInspiration Previous articleOvernight Breaking News: Suspect shoots and robs victim in ApopkaNext articleMaking sense out of Las Vegas Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Reply Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Well, that is true Mr. Towne, about what you said about Hitler, and the fact that he had a heart for animals, but not for people. I, myself have compassion for both some people, not all, and animals too, but to me, animals don’t have a voice to speak up, and they don’t have the hidden agendas that some people have. Another thing is, while Hitler’s unspeakable evil acts cannot be explained, never doubt that the regular everyday person, that might be standing right next to you, or that you think you know so very well, is just as capable as committing equally evil acts also, whether you believe it or not. Reply Mama Mia, when enough people raise their voices against an evil, only then will there be change. It is my sad experience that for most of us we are not stirred for change until an evil jumps up and bites us in the behind. You want to remember that those slow painful deaths you speak of are fashion driven just as much today as they were fifty and a hundred years ago. As long as there are people willing to pay hard cash for elephant ivory for decorations, rhino horns for aphrodisiac, bear gall for faux medicine, and animal hides for vanity, injustice will occur. Chaz Reply October 9, 2017 at 9:24 pm Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter And I suppose it is the same with politics, medicine, and every other area of life, when people seek the easy way, the convenient way, the feel good way, they remain the same and the status quo prevails. Health is the same. We know that most of the time illness can be relieved by proper diet and exercise along with stress reduction but people are obviously brain dead because the average person would rather pop a pill, even when they know the pill has negative side affects. That is part of what is wrong with society, we want an easy way out, an easy, pain free, effortless solution. O.K. I will get off my soap box now before I offend some poor, dumb, deprived slob. Oops, I didn’t really say that did I? Chaz October 12, 2017 at 9:10 am charles towne charles towne Richard, sounds to me your grandpa had some moxie! The “make like a tree” thing works real good except when it doesn’t. Most animals are attracted to motion but out in the wild there are exceptions to every rule. Chaz Reply Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 October 9, 2017 at 9:45 pm charles towne Please enter your name here Reply InspirationBy Charles Towne         I have eaten some pretty nasty things in my life, but never skunk.  To my way of thinking a man would have to be pretty near starving to eat a skunk, and that’s putting it mildly.We were camping back on the state land several miles from Gladwin, Michigan up off Lame Duck Road. Lame Duck is aptly named because the darned road is so crooked one might get the idea it was laid out by a gimpy, one legged duck.  The area seems to be over-ran with wildlife.  Deer are rampant, as are beaver and nature’s clown, the otter.  There are black bear in the area but they are wise and secretive, staying away from man.  I’ve seen bobcat there, and it is such a delight to lay in your sleeping bag on a moonlit night and hear coyotes singing over yonder.It was late fall and the nights had turned frosty so the skeeters and no-see-ums were no problem. In other words, it was near onto perfect for just being, and enjoying life.We let the fire die down, crawled into our sleeping bags, and the next thing we knew it was morning.  It was so peaceful in my sleeping bag and I was trying to see fit to crawl out and start a new day when I heard something outside my tent.  There was a clunking sound, some scurrying around, and then a thud.  Suddenly one of the other campers must have climbed out of his tent.  I heard him say, “Hey!  What is that!  OH NO, A SKUNK!”Curious, I pulled on my pants and shoes and unzipped the door to my tent.   Sticking my head out, I didn’t see anything, so I stepped outside.“Where’s the skunk?”  I called.“He was just outside my tent door a minute ago!”  A camper called, “And I think there’s something wrong with him!”Just then something bumped against the back of my left foot.  I no longer needed to find the skunk, it had found me, and there was a tin can stuck on its head.(Skunks are really charming little critters.  One time I found myself surrounded by a family of skunks.  The little mama was taking her babies for a stroll and when I saw them I froze.  Due to the fact that their eyesight isn’t the best, I have found that imitating a tree is the best defense against skunks.  The little mama wandered over to me and I guess she concluded that I was a rock because she sniffed at my shoe, tugged at it trying to turn it over to see what delicious bugs might be hiding there, but then, unable to move the rock, she led her brood of skunkettes away, and I began breathing again.)Skunks are scavengers, and this little guy had been hunting for something to eat, and finding a can that some other campers had carelessly discarded in the woods, smelling some enticing odor, it had jammed its head into the can, thus becoming trapped.Without giving it a second thought I reached down and grabbed that can and lifted the can with its accompanying skunk off the ground.The skunk was pushing at the can with its little front paws and it was running in place with its hind feet and going nowhere fast.Then I thought, “What is this little guy going to think when his head comes out of that can?”No sooner the thought than the deed, for just then his head popped out of the can, and the skunk dropped to the ground.When it hit the ground, Mr. stinky squatted, and raised that banner of a tail threateningly.Imagining that I was about to be anointed, I froze, and made like a tree.The skunk, detecting no movement on my part, looked around, and walked closer.  Then it looked up into the tree’s face as if to say, “This is your lucky day, Buster!”Finally, without a backward glance; that black and white tail held proudly over its back, it ambled away.  And it didn’t even say thanks.Sometimes it is good to just remember the father’s words, “Be still and know that I am God.”AN OUTDOORSMAN’S PRAYER“Dear lord, help me to remember that it is just in the skunk’s character to spray before thinking and stink things up.  When I am dealing with your children, sometimes it is good to remember that folks are sometimes like skunks, they can respond in ways that are not always pleasant.  I want my life to be a sweet odor to you father.  I don’t want to offend you or your children so help me to be patient and kind and always think before I respond.  I love you father, and I know that you love me.  Thank you Papa, I ask this in Jesus’ Holy name, Amen.” Richard Sommerfeld Please enter your comment! LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply October 9, 2017 at 6:12 pm Oh Mama Mia, the only sure fire eradicator of essence of skonk is to bury the poor victim and then after six months dig him up, the only problem is he will still stink. Time is the only real cure. Tomato juice doesn’t help a bit, believe me, I know from personal experience. We have two skunks in Florida, the striped skunk and the spotted skunk. The spotted skunk is smaller, about half the size of the striped skunk. The striped skunk was at one time common in central Florida but due to a disease kill off several years ago he is now quite rare in our area. The spotted skunk is common up in the Ocala area. The skunk is really an endearing little guy until he decides you are a threat, in which case he is like some people and will go off half cocked in which case, YOU ARE IN TROUBLE!. charles towne Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.last_img read more

The typical method for designing a house would assign rectangular rooms with specific functions and lay out them. Such a design produces a series of rooms of similar size and causes monotonous spatial experiences. Our approach was to avoid the conventional design practice and to create a structurally rational but spatially heterogeneous house. Save this picture!Courtesy of Alphaville ArchitectsOn the assumption that there is a human being within the optimal spatial coordinates resulted from the site and living requirements, we used Voronoi line segments that divide equally the shortest distance to create spaces.The actual trial and error involved the full use of 3D-CAD. First, the building’s shape was squashed in a parallelogram in order to keep an adequate distance from the site’s borders. Second, the center wall was folded to divide the space into two, diagonal to the site on the first floor and parallel to the site on the third floor. Next, the floors were skipped, and. The final step was to slope the roof. In this way, various spaces came to be created so that continuous changes can be experienced as one moves along or through the bent wall. (the way of folding diagram) Save this picture!DiagramsThe slits on east elevation that run from first to third floor introduces direct light into the space reflecting the folded wall beautifully through the highly rational structure with minimum wall girders. At the same time, the slit on west elevation bring indirect light through the openings from behind the folded wall. Therefore while the space along the folded wall is an interior space filled with direct light, it also has an outdoor- space-like feeling facing folded walls with shining openings reflected by indirect light. (light distribution diagram) Save this picture!Courtesy of Alphaville ArchitectsWe imagined a life in a building situated in a medium-density city where multiple buildings are connected via exterior in a loose relationship among man, building and nature, unlike in a city where each building is confined to each specific site. In that sense, although what we proposed here is a single family house, this design model is also applicable to larger buildings such as collective housings, offices, or multi-use complexes in a rational and versatile way.Project gallerySee allShow lessContemporary Jewish Museum Presents Stanley Saitowitz: JudaicaArticlesmodeLab Strip Morphologies II WorkshopArticles Share Projects Save this picture!Courtesy of Alphaville Architects+ 15 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/180254/house-folded-alphaville-architects Clipboardlast_img read more

Mire’s unjust arrest and conviction violated media freedom. Arrests are used to get journalists to censor themselves and play along with authorities.——————————————————————————–14- 08- 2010- Abdifatah Jama Mire, the deputy director of a radio station based in Bosaso, in the semi-autonomous northeastern region of Puntland, was sentenced to six years in prison in a summary trial in Bosaso today for interviewing a local rebel chief linked to Al-Qaeda.Mire and seven other journalists employed by radio Horseed Media FM were arrested when heavily-armed police raided the station and suspended its transmissions at 5:20 p.m. yesterday, shortly after it broadcast an interview with Sheikh Mohamed Said Attom, the commander of a group of Islamist militants who are fighting the Puntland government in the Galgala area.The journalists were taken to Bosaso police headquarters where they were interrogated by regional police chief Col. Osman Afdalouw and other senior officers. They were all released yesterday evening except Mire. The media were barred from the courtroom during today’s trial, which lasted just a few minutes.“Mire’s jail sentence and the arbitrary detention of his seven colleagues for several hours yesterday constitute flagrant and deliberate press freedom violations by the Puntland authorities,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We call for his immediate release.”Puntland’s deputy information minister, Abdiqani Salad Gurey, told Agence France-Presse that Mire was sentenced to six years in prison and a fine of 500 dollars for violating Puntland’s anti-terrorist laws.Horseed Media executive director Mahad Musse said he did not understand why the media were being targeted for covering the fighting between the Puntland forces and rebels led by Sheikh Mohamed Said Atom in the mountainous district of Galgala. The authorities welcomed it when the local media broadcast government statements and punished them when they interviewed the opposition, he said. “This is totally against the freedom of the press in Puntland,” he added.A Horseed Media FM representative told Reporters Without Borders that the station intended to file an appeal against Mire’s conviction later today.Nuh Muse Birjeb, a journalist working for Voice of America’s Somali-language service, was meanwhile forbidden from working in Puntland by the region’s government earlier this week.
