bailey button chestnut uggs Kokom Bannock Shack keeps family traditions alive

A homegrown area business known for getting around is putting down some roots in Dryden.

Known far and wide throughout the Northwest for their authentic homemade fare through their mobile vendor wagon, Kokom Bannock Shack has established a sit down and take out restaurant at Dryden Golden Mile Plaza on Hwy. 17.

“We been trying to open a restaurant in Vermilion Bay since last summer and things just didn pan out,” said Racicot. “Then we found this place. We said, give it a shot and see where it goes. So here we are.”

Opening Oct. 2, the operation has run a brisk trade with word of mouth spreading fast.

“Better than we expected actually,” said Dowzwell.

“We were pretty overwhelmed for the first few weeks,” added Racicot. “On Friday nights we had lineups out of the door.”

Meaning in Ojibway, a sense of tradition and quality home cooking is the secret ingredient to Kokom early success.

“We make everything from scratch, gravies, our meatloaf, burgers,

soups everything,” said Racicot. “Our bannock is made to order. It a family kind of thing. My grandma taught my Mom to make bannock, my Mom taught me and now I teaching my daughters. We actually have three generations making the bannock back there. Probably 80 per cent of the staff are family.”

Of particular note is Kokom ties to the First Nations community. Now living in Waldhof, Dowzwell and Racicot hail from Eagle Lake and Lac Des Mille Lacs First Nations respectively. They use the wall space to showcase Native art.

“We sell it on consignment,” said Racicot. “A lot of the Aboriginal people are too shy and they don know how to get their work out there. We have art from all over Big Grassy, Thunder Bay, Kenora, Dryden, Fort Frances.”

In the short time they been open, Kokom has also drawn a nomination for Business of the Year from the Nishnawbe Aski Development Fund Business Awards.

Dowswell says there are plans to further evolve the mobile side of the business, a staple sight at regional pow wows and musical events like the Ear Falls Trout Forest Music Festival where they say they could have benefitted from greater capacity.

“We working on something bigger for mobile,
ugg booys Kokom Bannock Shack keeps family traditions alive
” said Dowzwell. “We trying to get a bus or something larger than the smaller pull behind shack we have now.”

A more efficient and better staffed mobile operation would allow them to take advantage of opportunities like a recent invitation to be vendors at the Winnipeg Folk Fest.

genuine cheap ugg boots known investment might have made the market plunge worse

half price uggs known investment might have made the market plunge worse

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) Investors have an obscure way to place bets that the market will stay calm. And for more than a year, they couldn lose. Stocks crept higher and higher with barely a bump.

But those bets suddenly went bad this week when the market took a terrifying plunge. And those little known investments may have made it worse.

Those funds are inversely linked to the VIX, a gauge of turbulence in the market. So when volatility spiked by a record 116% on Monday, the funds plummeted. It lost almost 100% of its value after the market closed on Monday. It had spiked 188% last year, during a period of unusual calm for the stock market.

Credit Suisse, which runs the fund, announced it would close it later this month, 12 years ahead of schedule. Credit Suisse said there would be “no material impact” to the bank.

A similar fund run by Nomura Securities is being liquidated after it crashed. And the ProShares Short VIX Short Term Futures ETF plunged 85%.

Some market analysts believe the implosion of these complex instruments, which are favored by hedge funds, may have driven the VIX higher and stocks lower than they otherwise would have been. The Dow plunged by a record 1,175 points on Monday.

“There is a feedback loop. It all snowballed,” said Michael Block, chief market strategist at Rhino Trading Partners. He said it “absolutely” contributed to the market turmoil.

The theory is that investors who suffered massive losses betting against volatility were forced to “panic sell” into the broader market, driving stocks down further. It became a vicious cycle.

“It spirals,” Block said. “Suddenly everyone is selling, and rather than give up your whole year of gains, you start puking as well.”

To be sure, the market wasn down just because of these complex volatility instruments. Fear returned to the market because of worries about inflation and spiking bond yields. But those concerns may not fully explain the severity of the losses.

“While it not the underlying cause,” RBC Wealth Management portfolio analyst Kelly Bogdanova said, the volatility funds “certainly fueled the move and made it a bigger move.”

The inverse volatility funds are not meant for casual investors. They are geared toward sophisticated speculators, hedge fund investors and other traders with deep understanding of hedging.

Whenever markets go haywire, some people blame the sophisticated computer programs that buy and sell stocks based on complex algorithms and formulas.

And while high frequency trading does often exacerbate volatile markets, Themis Trading Arnuk said this week turmoil didn begin there.

Kristina Hooper, chief global market strategist at Invesco, said there were “a lot of forces at work,” but the short volatility trade blowing up “certainly aggravated it.”

BlackRock, which has made a fortune on the boom in exchange traded funds, put out a statement Monday saying it “strongly supports a regulatory classification system” that would differentiate “plain vanilla ETFs” from the risky funds that imploded.

The good news is that unlike the risky mortgage securities at the heart of the 2008 crisis, these volatility instruments don change the overall economic environment.

ugg bags uk Know all that happened after Honeypreet

genuine ugg boots uk Know all that happened after Honeypreet

Honeypreet, whose real name is Priyanka Taneja, who remained fugitive for 38 days after she was booked by the Haryana Police on charge of sedition, was arrested on Tuesday from the Zirakpur Patiala highway, about 15 km from Chandigarh.

Police sources said that Honeypreet was questioned by the SIT officials and women police officials for several hours after her arrest at the Chandimandir police station here.

“She was evasive in her replies about her whereabouts and her role in inciting violence and providing funding to those behind the violence. We are interrogating her and will seek her police remand,” a police officer involved in the questioning told IANS.

Honeypreet complained of chest pain in the night and was taken to a hospital here where she was found to be fine by doctors.

A woman accomplice, Sukhdeep Kaur, who was accompanying Honeypreet when she was arrested on Tuesday, was also arrested on charges of harbouring the fugitive.

The Toyota Innova, in which they were travelling, has also been seized by the police.

The police had been on Honeypreet trail for nearly a month and raids were conducted in Nepal, Rajasthan, Bihar and Haryana. Chawla, who comfirmed her arrest, said that investigation would be done on where all Honeypreet stayed in the past few days and who all helped in harbouring her.

Refuting rumours that Honeypreet had surrendered and was not arrested, Chawla said: “It was not a surrender. It was an arrest.”

Assistant Commissioner of Police Mukesh Malhotra,
ugg bags uk Know all that happened after Honeypreet
who is heading the SIT constituted to probe the violence following the August 25 conviction of the jailed Dera chief, is questioning Honeypreet.

“We need to investigate her role in the Panchkula violence on August 25 and hence we will seek her police remand,” he added.

Earlier on Tuesday, Honeypreet, in an interview to a news channel, claimed that she was innocent. Describing the allegations against her as “baseless”, she said that she was falsely implicated in the sedition case.

Earlier, the Delhi High Court on September 26 dismissed her anticipatory bail plea.

“The plea is without merit. Honeypreet has been evading arrest in Haryana,” Justice Sangita Dhingra Sehgal had ruled on the plea of Honeypreet, who apprehended a threat to her life in Haryana.

A court in Panchkula had in September issued arrest warrants against top Dera functionaries Honeypreet, Aditya Insan and Pawan Insan.

All three were booked by the Haryana Police on charges of sedition, inciting violence and being involved in a conspiracy to help the Dera chief escape after his conviction by a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court on August 25 on two counts of rape of female disciples in 1999.

The Haryana Police had sounded an international alert against all three.

Honeypreet, in her mid 30s, has been the closest aide of Ram Rahim since 2009. Her ex husband Vishwas Gupta had alleged illicit relations between the two.

The woman who has been claiming to be Ram Rahim “adopted daughter” starred as the lead heroine in five films he directed, produced and acted in over a period of three years.

His rape conviction led to violence in Panchkula and Sirsa in Haryana, leaving 38 people dead and another 264 injured. Isolated incidents of violence were also reported from Delhi and several places in Punjab.

amazon uggs Kiwanis helps foster kids with needs and holiday wishes

The Friends of Foster Kids provides a Christmas for children in the foster care system who have been removed from their homes due to abuse and neglect and are placed in temporary housing or shelters. Many have no family and no place to live. Kiwanis, Optimist and Lions clubs help them with some of their basic needs, and some of their wishes.

The Utica Shelby Kiwanis Club recently received an update from Theresa Toia, the founder of the nonprofit Friends of Foster Kids, an organization the club supports in different ways.

Toia said that, from Macomb County alone, there are approximately 900 children in foster care each year. Many say they have never received a Christmas gift. So, at this time of year, volunteers try to get those wish list things into a Santa red duffel.

One young woman who was in foster care said she was amazed she got all three things on her wish list. In spite of her early life with a mother who was an addict, the young woman is now living independently and working at a counseling job.

Foster children need clothing like winter coats, boots and pajamas. They also need personal care items, pillows and blankets, duffel bags. They want toys and games and sports items. Some have never had a bicycle, a doll or toy truck, and the babies need development toys.

We are fortunate that lots of organizations support us, and we work from a donated building, with donated shelving, Toia said.

They include the Mount Clemens Kiwanis Club, and the Central Macomb Optimist Club.

The Shelby Macomb Daybreakers Kiwanis has been especially moved by Theresa Toia s effort to help Foster Kids, club president Nancy Nevers said. When you understand these children are often moved from family to family and perhaps don t even have their own pillow or blanket, it really tugs at your heart. Theresa has recently launched another project helping foster kids who have aged out of the program. Most people don t consider what happens to those kids who at 18 are cut lose and they are on their own. That program really got our attention. We all remember these kids at Christmas, but they need to be remembered year round and we are committed to do just that.

Friends of Foster Kids more than fits the Kiwanis mission statement dedicated to changing the world, one child and one community at a time. We are a global organization of volunteers, and our immediate focus is helping needy children in our community. Our members hands and hearts help those who cannot always help themselves.

A group of people called Chicks with Sticks knit and crochet, then donate items to Friends of Foster Kids.

We also sponsor the Chicks with Sticks in their philanthropy. We fund their efforts, Nevers said.

The Daybreakers meet two mornings and two evenings throughout the month.

The Optimist Club of St. Clair Shores recently hosted its second no sew fleece blanket making party. About 30 men and women came out to make blankets for foster children. Also, people dropped off blankets, sheets, pillowcases, pillows, clothing, toys, personal items, suitcases and duffle bags which will all go to the Friends of Foster Kids.

The Utica Shelby Township Optimists take 20 kids, Toia said. We have lots of support from Lions in general. The Shelby Township Lions Club just sent us a check. My husband is with the Utica Shelby Kiwanis. That s how I got introduced to them as a service club and that s why they have been aware of our organization from the onset. The Utica Shelby Kiwanis Club already had 15 kids wish lists, and they gave us $5,000 from their recent raffle, Dinner for Two Anywhere in World. All of these wonderful generous angels are working for these children.

We are trying to do Oakland County as well. Last year, we took care of over 1,200 children at Christmas. We got red cleaners bags with drawstrings and each child got a Santa bag gift specifically filled for them, she said.

We work with the Department of Human Services and others that deal with placement. We have lists with the child s first name, age, gender, size, and the children put down three wishes along with their special needs or interests. The little ones might get a LeapFrog and LeapPad, trucks and trains or set of LEGOs, Ninja Turtles and Batman, doll houses and baby dolls with strollers and diapers. Some love to build things or do arts and crafts. Each child gets to feel special, even if it s just for one day.

The older ones are asking for UGG type boots, iPads and other electronics with ear buds. The older ones rely on us for electronics. Without a tablet and WiFi you can t even apply for a job. You don t do that in person any more. In most cases, we re all they have. They ask for jeans and winter coats, Timberland boots the waterproof ones that keep your feet dry and warm and last forever.

They don t want the other kids at school to know they are foster kids from abuse and neglect. They want to dress like the other kids and want them to think they have families. Some can t stay in the same school system when they are moved around to different homes and facilities. They lose their friends and nothing is stable in their lives, even the caseworkers which have a great turnover, she said.

There was this 17 year old. All he wanted was Nike shoes. He opened his red Santa bag and just stared for a minute. We asked if there was something wrong and he said no, that he just had never received a wrapped gift ever in his life. When you think that volunteering isn t important, it makes you wish that you had been the one to wrap that gift with extra care and special ribbons.

This beautiful young man with a beautiful personality got a job and set himself up in an apartment. He got a car but has to drive a bike to work because he makes $1,200 a month and his car insurance is $3,800 a month. These kids can t get a family discount because they don t have families.

The older kids are what we have the largest impact on, Toia said. They are so generous with their younger siblings. They want to split their gifts with their little brothers and sisters so they don t have to struggle as much. They hover over them like a parent, she said.

Kiwanis sponsors shopping trip

The Utica Shelby Kiwanis Club is providing a special Christmas for 20 families by taking them on a shopping spree on Dec. 10 at a local Walmart store. The club is a sponsor of the Shelby Township Jingle Bell Run on Dec. 18 that benefits Utica area charities.

Brad Suggs, principal of West Utica Elementary School, recently expressed his appreciation for what the club does for the school paying for food for students, and reading books to them, providing more than $10,000 in books to the students, backpacks containing school supplies, providing business prospective on Career Focus Day. Members supported its running club, and STEM Program.

The club says that every $10 donation purchases 36 snacks or purchases dozens of books for students or feeds a family of a half dozen packaged meals. Ten dollars purchases one backpack filled with school supplies; buys 10 water bottles for students participating in the after school running program, or purchases scarves, hats and mittens for two children.

Buy gift cards for foster teens

The Mount Clemens Kiwanis Club gift card drive for Macomb County foster care teens asks for $10 and $20 cards for restaurants, stores and malls and movie theaters. Cards may be dropped off to Jill Johnson at Printing By Johnson, 1430 South Gratiot Ave., Mount Clemens. Club members are ringing Salvation Army kettle bells on Dec. 10 and Dec. 17 at a Walmart store.

Starring Jennifer WEstfeldt, Heather Juergendsen, Scott Cohen. Directed by Charles Herman Wurmfield.

A LIKEABLE and witty romantic comedy, Kissing Jessica Stein is very much the product of its two leading actresses, Jennifer Westfeldt and Heather Juergensen.

As they (“they” because they speak virtually as a single person, even finishing each others’ sentences!) recall “as unknown actresses we were tired of all the thankless roles out there like the nagging girlfriend, the young mother, the adoring wife basically the “Honey, come to bed” roles.

“So in order to empower ourselves, we created our own juicy roles. We were inspired by Billy Bob Thornton, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, Ed Burns . . . all those hungry artists who insisted on being let into the game.”

So, Kissing Jessica Stein (originally entitled Lipschtick, a title the girls were sorry to lose, I feel) began as a play, or more accurately a night of sketch comedy, that ran off off Broadway in New York five years ago.

It began, they recall,
ugg bailey button triplet boots Kissing Jessica Stein 15
“as an idea for a skit in which two Laura Ashley clad girly girls’ meet at a day spa to negotiate how to become lesbians.

“It was broad and comic, but the more we explored the idea the more we began to shed the spoof and investigate the deeper underlying truth of our story. We discovered that this scenario was more common than we thought, that in our culture it seems that women are allowed to explore their sexuality more easily than men, and so they do”.

Kissing Jessica Stein then evolved into the tale of a sensitive, but neurotic and very straight, New York Jewish journalist, Jessica Stein (Jennifer Westfeldt), who, tired of the dating go round, on an impulse answers an intriguing personal ad in the “women seeking women” section.

It’s been placed by Helen (Heather Juergensen), the director of a trendy art gallery, and she’s also straight but bored with her many male sexual partners. When the pair meet, they immediately click and then muddle their way through an earnest but vaguely ridiculous, and often painfully funny, courtship that blurs the lines between friendship and romantic love. To Jennifer and Heather’s surprise “we thought no one had even seen this little play!” something of a bidding war began between various Hollywood studios for the rights to the play.

But after a period in “development purgatory”, they bought back the rights to their own work and begged, borrowed and scraped together the money to make it themselves, worried all along that what had seemed fresh and different when they conceived it had been overtaken by such “sex and the single girl” TV shows as Ally McBeal.

“We even had to take out lines we’d written because we heard those shows use the same one!” they lament.

The result, nonetheless, is a fresh feeling, agenda free little jewel of a film about taking a chance on romance, irrespective of prejudice or political correctness, that ought to appeal to people of almost any and every sexual persuasion.

ugg sheepskin gloves KISS demands interviewer remove Iron Maiden t

uggs westfield KISS demands interviewer remove Iron Maiden t

(KUTV) A video went viral Tuesday showing a 2012 interview with KISS, who demand the interviewer, identified as Gustavo, remove his Iron Maiden t shirt, saying “It doesn’t show respect.”

As Gustavo begins the interview, guitarist/singer Paul Stanley leans over, points to the Iron Maiden logo on Gustavo’s shirt and says, “I have a question to ask. KISS is K I S S. This does not spell KISS, Gustavo. You made a big mistake.”

Gustavo fights back, asking “Do you guys want every journalist to wear KISS t shirts when doing KISS interviews?” The band responds, saying that it’s about courtesy.

Stanley tries to clarify that they love Iron Maiden, “We love Steve [Harris], we love Bruce [Dickinson], we love Nicko [McBrain]. We love them all, but you’re at a KISS concert. It doesn’t show respect. You’re in our house.”

KISS drummer Eric Singer adds that “if you went to a Raiders game, you wouldn’t wear the other team’s jersey.”

Simmons finally approaches Gustavo and asks him to do him a favor by turning the t shirt backwards. Gustavo removes his t shirt and flips it inside out. The band applauds in response.

The band then awarded Gustavo with a free KISS t shirt, which he put on to finally conduct the interview.
