The Lima News from Lima, Ohio (2024)

REGION OHIO The Lima News B2 Monday, June 27, 2005 You scream, I scream KELLI CARDINAL The Lima News Kim Shaner (right) of Lima, buys Big Dippers and Oreo Cookies and Cream with her daughter Courtney, 3. Ice Cream truck driver Lil Miller, of Lima, was jingling along Bahama Drive in Lima on a steamy Sunday afternoon. She is driving a north-end route for the first time this summer. PARKINSON'S from B1 wears western shirts because they have snaps. The buttons are too difficult for him.

"We would be out and people would say, 'Where's your horse," Vivian told the story. "When we saw the horse, Don said, 'I'm going to get that so when people ask where's my horse, I can say it's at home." While dismayed that someone would try to take or damage the horse that many in the city associate Don with, the couple says they still know there are good people in Lima. Just the other day, two strangers stopped to help Don when he had fallen from his scooter while outside. "We have decent, respectable people in the city of Lima," Don said. After Don was diagnosed with Parkinson's, he could barely walk, feed or dress himself.

He quickly took the attitude that he was not going to live that way, and his wife supported him. "Parkinson's is a sickness and I want to beat it. It's mind over matter," Don said. "To him, to just sit was not living," Vivian said. Just sitting is the last thing Don has done the last 36 years.

He used to bowl and golf, and even painted the couple's basem*nt. He still mows his own grass, and while heavily reliant on his motorized scooters, still walks some. Don' still does leg and arm exercises every night, as well as working with his face muscles. Many Parkinson's patients have little facial expression because the muscles do not work. "He has set for 36 years with a mirror to work those muscles, making faces, so he can keep those expressions," Vivian said.

Through his own struggle, Don continues to help others. He has worked through the Parkinson's Foundation for the past 10 years, offering advice on the Internet to people with the disease and their caregivers. "It's what I have learned," Don said, then demonstrating the best way for a person having trouble to get up from a chair. "It's just like any job, when you have been at it a long time, you learn Agents question, search expert lawyer in child p*rn CLEVELAND (AP) Federal agents looking for evidence of child p*rnography searched the home of and detained a former prosecutor who's become an expert witness for child p*rnography defendants, the man's lawyer said. Dean Boland, 38, of suburban Lakewood, is a former assistant Cuyahoga County prosecutor in Cleveland.

Boland was taken into custody Friday by FBI agents but later released, said his lawyer, Ian Friedman. Boland has expertise in digital-imaging technology and the ways p*rnographers use it to enhance and distribute photographs on the Internet. His work on behalf of defendants has brought increasing demnation from police and prosecutors. Friedman said he suspects his client's success as a courtroom consultant is the reason for the federal investigation, though he would not discuss the specifics of the FBI interrogation. Messages were left Sunday with the FBI and the U.S.

attorney's office in Cleveland. Friedman decried what he said was the message sent by his client's detention. "What it's saying is that any person wanting to help the defense in one of these cases is now being targeted by the government," Friedman said. "Here we have an educator, a teacher, an officer of the court being persecuted for something that is considered unfavorable in the public's eye. Agents came out of Boland's home carrying computers and bags of documents.

But the nature of the evidence confiscated was not known Saturday, and the search warrant was sealed. MEET Shanda Martz Funeral with 11 yrs. experience.
