A Lisbon couple whose son was killed by a fatigued truck driver 22 years ago will continue their years of work advocating for safe highways as they head to Washington DC in the coming days for the National Truck Safety Conference.
Daphne and Steve Izer will join dozens of truck crash victims and their families at the Truck Safety Coalition’s biennial Sorrow to Strength conference Oct. 17-20. Victims and their families will meet with members of Congress and their staff to encourage lawmakers to reject anti-truck safety provisions under consideration on Capitol Hill, and to push for positive changes in truck safety.

Just What We Need More Government Oversight ~ Worked Great For Amtrak Employees, Claim They Worked 40 hours plus In One Day


Timesheets for employees of Amtrak are riddled with abuse, according to a recent audit report, with cases of workers claiming over 40 hours of work in a single day.
The audit released by Amtrak’s Office of Inspector General (OIG) Thursday found examples of abuse in the overtime system, which totaled nearly $200 million in overtime pay last year.
“[Calendar Year] CY 2014 timesheet data revealed trends and patterns that indicate potential fraud, waste, and abuse in the reporting of overtime and regular time,” the audit said. “Some of these trends and patterns may be justified because of the complexity of union agreement rules, the nature of jobs, and the functions employees perform.”

Democrats Out Stumping For Campaign Money While American Citizens Are Getting Shot: CHICAGO WAR ZONE: 20 SHOT, 5 DEAD SINCE FRIDAY, GOVERNOR MULLS NATIONAL GUARD

 Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel
by clyde

Breitbart is reporting that deadly violence has continued to rage on in Chicago since Thursday night’s mass shooting that left 13 wounded, including a three-year old boy who was shot in the head. Between Friday and Sunday morning, there have been at least 20 more shot leaving five dead and 15 injured. Police shot one man wanted in connection with a burglary, as he allegedly tried to drive his car into a police car.
The ongoing epidemic has prompted Chicago media to question Governor Pat Quinn about the need for additional support for law enforcement. Quinn told reporters there have not been any specific conversations about the use of Illinois State Police or National Guard to assist Chicago Police however did say he is “open” to it.
“I think anyone who saw what happened in Cornell Park [Thursday’s mass shooting of 13] the other night was horrified by the violence. I live on the West Side of Chicago. It is an area that has been inflicted with violence, and we’ve got to protect the people,” Quinn said.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel was traveling around the country, appearing on the Late Show and fundraising for Newark, New Jersey Mayor Corey Booker during last week’s string of violence. After releasing a statement about the Thursday’s massacre, Emanuel received strong criticism from his residents on the Mayor’s official Facebook page.
One resident said, “Mayor Emanuel, we need you to focus on Chicago and get off the world stage.”
Emanuel and Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy have continued to iterate Chicago murders have declined from 2012’s bloodbath year by 21%, while both continuing to for push for more gun restrictions to curb the ongoing “gun violence.”
Deonta Howard, the three-year old boy shot on Thursday night is said to be “recovering,” but will need some plastic surgery.
One south side Chicago resident told Breitbart News, the mass shooting occurred on a basketball court, “right underneath one the police crime monitor cameras.” He asked, “why haven’t the police released any of that footage, so people can help try to find the shooters?”
Chicago Police have not announced any arrests in that shooting.

How Much Truth About World Events Can You Handle Lisbon?

4Chan Finds False Flag Suspects In Boston Marathon Bombing?

Wednesday, April 17,

Wow! Amazing detective work is being done by the 4Chan Think Tank and the internet community to pull this Boston Marathon false flag apart. You got to check out these pictures that they have assembled. I’ve only put a few of them into this story of the amazing amount that they have going but you have to check out these official looking military guys with black backpacks. Has 4Chan nabbed the ‘false flag’ perpetrators, caught on camera? Some of the pictures below seem to show two ‘cats’ that don’t belong at this ‘festival’. Or do they? Check out the video I’ve added at the bottom to the story. What’s that all about? They are all dressed nearly the exact same way. We also know that the emblem on his hat is used by US Navy Seals, as well as Blackwater/Xe/Academi, the mercenary army of Monsanto.

"A Cut Above"; UPDATE 1-U.S. to allow small knives to be carried onto airplanes








* New rules go into effect April 25
* Changes to conform with international standards

* Flight attendants say change endangers passengers (Adds quotes from travelers)

By Deborah Charles

WASHINGTON, March 5 (Reuters) - The U.S. Transportation Security Administration said on Tuesday that travelers can soon bring small pocket knives on board airplanes for the first time since the Sept. 11 attacks, sparking outrage from flight attendants who said the decision would endanger passengers and crew.

The TSA said that effective April 25, it would allow knives with blades that are 2.36 inches (6 cm) or less in length and less than 1/2 inch (1-1/4 cm) wide. Other items that will be allowed on board again as part of a passenger's carry-on luggage include billiard cues, ski poles, hockey sticks and lacrosse sticks.

Items that had been prohibited like razors, box cutters or knives with a fixed blade are still not allowed on board.
TSA spokesman David Castelveter said the decision was made to bring U.S. regulations more in line with International Civil Aviation Organization standards and would also help provide a better experience for travelers.
"This is part of an overall Risk-Based Security approach, which allows Transportation Security officers to better focus their efforts on finding higher-threat items such as explosives," he said.

What Has Happened To The United States of America?; NaturalNews: FDA quietly approves GM salmon over Christmas holiday...‏

Dear Lisbon Reporter and NaturalNews readers,
The U.S. federal government is pretty sneaky. Last year on New Year's Eve, President Obama signed into law the NDAA that "legalized" secret arrests, indefinite detention, the execution of American citizens, and other horrors of a police state. This year, during the Christmas holiday weekend, the FDA has approved genetically modified salmon to be introduced into the U.S. food supply.
Looks like it's time to stop eating salmon, huh!

Body found in Lisbon

Police to return to scene Wednesday
The Times Record
LISBON —  Maine State Police say the skeletal remains found early this afternoon in Lisbon Center may be those of 22-year-old Christiana Fesmire of Lewiston, who has been missing since July 2011.

Tampa Republican National Convention Under 'Lock Down' ?




Too Much Security at the Republican National Convention?

by Tim Young | Aug 28, 2012 | Categories: Featured.
There is no way to really describe how great it is to have Absolute Rights at the Republican National Convention for the first time in its history.
We have worked very hard and are very proud to be able to bring you the coverage you want to see from the convention.
One of the first things that no one can deny is different about this Tampa is its security.
Everywhere that you look, on almost every corner, is a sign that this town is under serious ‘lock and key.’  It’s almost as if the town is being run by martial law.
Whether it is large amounts of troops, or barricades on every corner, you get a feeling that it’s more than just you and your ‘friends,’ in town… something bigger is watching you.
We had an opportunity to take a look around downtown Tampa and speak to a few of the locals about what they were seeing.  We wanted to show you exactly what you were missing by merely watching the convention on TV.  On Sunday, the Absolute Rights team walked around town and uncovered what you may very well never see…
Watch the video here and you be the judge:

Lisbon Lawman's Legacy: His Way Or The Highway


HIS WAY OR THE HIGHWAY

On May 1, 2012 David T. Brooks presented his own feelings about the future of the Lisbon Communications Center. The entire presentation dealt with what Brooks wanted the councilors to know. But there were several simple facts which came out of this discussion.

  1. Brooks has been working on this proposal for eight years. In this eight year period, Brooks never gave any thought to what would happen if the Lisbon Communications Center were to be shut down. Instead of considering all aspects of the situation and coming up with a contingency plan for each scenario; he chooses to ignore the possibility of anyone not approving his proposal. This was very apparent by Brooks' continual repeating there is “NO PLAN”

     There is no plan because Brooks has never considered anything else. It is the Chief of Police’s responsibility to provide a contingency plan for each phase of his operation not the County Commissioners.

  2. The most simplistic action of all communications was not addressed by Brooks. The utilization of cell phones to communicate between Lisbon Departments was never considered by Brooks. 

  3. Utilizing “thumb drives” to update IMC, prepare logs or record data was never considered.

  4. Utilizing Duty Officers and Sergeants to check IMC, NCIC and checks and interstate inquiries were never considered. 

  5. The first responder on the scene could assess the situation and utilizing a preloaded cell phone call for any additional assistance.

  6. The bus driver who is busing our children to away events could utilize a cell phone to communicate any situation as necessary.

I commend Councilor Gina Mason for seeing right though Brooks' presentation. Councilor Mason asked how come the town could not utilize cell phones as a means of communications since we already are paying for them. Councilor Mason asked Chief Brooks numerous questions he was not prepared to answer. Councilor Mason had the courage to ask why he has not looked at alternative solutions.

It would appear that, it is Brooks’ way or the highway because Brooks has no contingency plans in place for any of the different aspects of the Police Department.  So for the past eight years, he is only concerned with what is best for Brooks and not this community. The dispatch situation affects all of the citizens of Lisbon because it deals with the response time in an emergency. In an emergency every second counts in determining life or death. The country has instituted a program called 911 in order to expedite the process in hopes of saving lives. 

 Our County Commissioners are trying to do the same by consolidating all the communications centers and eliminating redundancy within the process. A 911 emergency phone call goes to either Lewiston/Auburn 911 if received by land line or to the Maine State Police Barracks in Gray if received by cell phone. These calls are then relayed to the Lisbon Communications Center to dispatch Police, Fire, and Emergency Medical Services (EMS). 

No 911 calls come DIRECTLY to the Lisbon Communication Center. Let me repeat that: No 911 calls come DIRECTLY to the Lisbon Communications Center. 
The County Commissioners are trying to improve this process by eliminating the middle step. By dispatching Police, Fire and EMS from the point the call is received will eliminate having to call the Lisbon Communications Center and speed up the response time. In an emergency, time is critical and every minute/second can make the difference between life or death. Streamlining the process and saving lives should be the number one priority of everyone.

Why would you NOT want to speed up the process in an attempt to save as many lives as possible?

Get A Grip On Reality; NaturalNews: Human race being terminated by "scientific suicide" - here are the ten most dangerous experiments‏

Dear Lisbon Reporter and NaturalNews Readers,

As the impending Fukushima disaster frighteningly illustrates, the human race is on the verge of being decimated by what I call "scientific suicide."
In the name of "science," our world is being destroyed... and the fate of the human race is gravely threatened.
In what I'm calling the most important warning I've ever published, today I'm calling for a return to the Precautionary Principle and a halt to all nuclear power, GMOs, nanotechnology and other high-risk technologies until we can determine their long-term risk to the very survival of the human race.
