A federal appeals court has thrown out city of Seattle restrictions on telephone directories, finding that the big yellow books deserve full protection under the Constitution. Issuing its decision Monday, a three judge panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals found restrictions adopted by the Seattle City Council in 2010 violate the First Amendment protections on free speech. Meant to curtail the distribution of the often unwanted books, the city ordinance imposed fees and restrictions on publishers while also requiring that they inform residents they can register not to receive the books. Attorneys for the city had claimed the Yellow Pages and other, similar directories were commercial speech and, as such, didn't warrant the broadest protection offered by the First Amendment. A federal judge in Seattle agreed, but was overruled by the higher court's decision Monday. "Although portions of the directories are obviously commercial in nature, the books contain more than that, and we conclude that the directories are entitled to the full protection of the First Amendment," Judge Richard R. Clifton wrote for the unanimous panel. Opining in favor of the publishers, Clifton suggested the arguments put forward by attorneys for the city would undercut protections on free speech. While governments are better able to restrict "commercial speech" generally advertising prior court decisions have established a more complicated review is necessary when a publication contains both noncommercial speech and commercial speech. "The full First Amendment protection of newspapers, magazines, television shows, radio programs, and the like demonstrates that the inclusion of commercial material does not support treating those publications and broadcasts as commercial speech entitled to less First Amendment protection," Clifton wrote for the panel. "The First Amendment does not make protection contingent on the perceived value of certain speech," Clifton continued. District Court judge hearing the case would be expected to issue a decision in line with the appeals court ruling. The city may appeal the panel's decision and request review by a full panel of the 9th Circuit. Once again the 9th blew it. Let us all exercise our freedom of speech. and send them (the 9th) the phone books that we don't want. Suggest: Drop them in the mail, marked COD, with the return address of the company that sent them. I do NOT agree that they should get free speech. I also do NOT agree that I (we) should be required to listen to them (delivered to my door step). BTW: I do WANT the phone book, it offers features that the internet does not. Where the heck do they consider delivery of an unwantedphone book as freedom of speech? Isn't this a form of SPAM? If you have the right to inform the post office you don't want junk mail in your mailbox, why should this be different? The fact that people don't want the phone books, don't need the phone books, most have opted out of getting them, and now will possibly be force fed them again, just doesn't sit right. I currently have no vested interest in this planet and have no kids or plans for kids, so when I am gone, this rock can turn into ash and get sucked into the sun. Sorry, but there you have it. That said. A. I have a phone that I can speak to and get a number in seconds. B. Doesn't my right to NOT have someone trespass and drop a phone book off on my private property trump someone else's right to free speech? Especially if that other person is a company that makes a profit off of that Free Speech? I work out of town, for weeks at a time. a phone book sitting on my doorstep is a burglars dream. C. Just thinking of the distribution system that is required and the energy that is expended to get these items out makes my head spin. but come one. Do we really need to cut down thousands of trees, run factories day and night, ship thousands of pounds over hundreds of miles and then spew more fuel to drop off these unwanted books? Is this an issue of "Free Speech"? Sure. But is it right? Is this company not showing us they care more about profit than people? I SAY. "Let's allow the phone book back into our society BUT let's pass a law or running o whatever to only allow these books to be available from the office of those that make them. If you want one, you need to pick it up or ask to have it delivered." When the company realizes they are paying for storage of thousands and thousands of unwanted books, maybe then they will stop the insanity. Yes, print all you want, but you just can't go drop them off on doorsteps. And if they are allowed to restart this nonsense, I say we find a parking lot somewhere, create stacks of phone books in random pattens and invite people out to camp among them. Maybe once people get a visual that camping out amount stacks of phone books isn't as cool as a forrest or real trees, we can get past this idiocy. "A federal appeals court has thrown out city of Seattle restrictions on telephone directories, finding that the big yellow books deserve full protection under the Constitution. Issuing its decision Monday, a three judge panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals found restrictions adopted by the Seattle City Council in 2010 violate the First Amendment protections on free speech." I beg to differ. If they want to publish the books and leave them in a bin on the sidewalk, for anyone and everyone to take one as they please, that would be one thing. However to step onto private property and place the book there, forcing the resident to toss it out, even after they have stated they don't want it is different. Why couldn't anyone and everyone do the same to further their personal message and agendas? Could porn publications be showing up unsolicited? If I opt out, I shouldn't be force fed anything on (my) private property. I think it's littering, I don't want any of that stuff on my porch. It looks like I am not home and criminals are looking. I guess the courts support the criminals by allowing people to litter at your house when you are out of town. Freedom of speech issue, that's a big stretch. My guess is the judge receives campaign donations from the phone book companies. Just another reason to have judges appointed, not elected. They cannot run on their record and most voters have no clue, we have to rely on the municipal league which is also compromised by lobbyists. I'll sum it all up for you Seattlelites that don't get it. You say you are trying to be green. You recycle. You buy a hybrid. You only buy overpriced organic foods (that really aren't that organic, you're the idiots that believe it) and you only shop at Whole Foods. Yet you don't give up any of the modernconveniences that are really ruining theenvironment.It's theequivalent of the fat guy that orders a Diet Coke with his Supersized fast food meal. Except in your case it would be like ordering a Diet Coke with 10 Supersized meals. You only choose to do what's right for theenvironment if it'sconvenient for you. Inactuality you are probably doing MORE damage to theenvironmentwith your brand new car, your iPad, your four trips to Starbucks every day. You're an idiot. Go ahead and get rid of the phonebooks. Pat yourself on the back. You saved a couple of trees but just killed 10 more driving to work. People in Seattle act like they care so much about theenvironment, they shop at Whole Foods, walk around with their iPads, want to create a law to ban phonebooks (most unused phonebooks get recycled anyways) but they have no problem sitting stuck in Seattle traffic in their cars and creating majorpollutionwhile sipping on their overpriced lattes. Get over yourselves already. If you want to do something about theenvironment take some personal responsibility and ditch your car. By the way, your computer, iPhone, iPad, was manufactured using child labor. Same with your "green" Nike shoes. That mean the local pizza chain, all take out places, all political info, nothing is allowed on private property. The pizza chains I don't like but I actually collect menus from takeout places and sometimes their specials intrigue me. I also think they have a right to advertise. If I'm a crook and wanna rip off your house and I see 5 ads hanging from your door I'm gonna know you're not home anyways. I called to opt out and they said "okay" but I still get them. One time my husband caught up to the guy delivering them and gave a whole stack of them back. Guess he was trying to get his point across but the guy just held on to them for the next week and dumped them on the hood of my husband's car. Enough wasting trees and the plastic bagging that goes around the paper to "protect it from the rain." 440892 307 Women Size Air Jordan 5 Retro Tropical Teal 2013 ,414571 003 Womens Air Jordan 13 Infrared Black Infrared 23 Black Nike Kobe 9 Low EM XDR Prelude 314996 005 Nike Air Foamposite One Concord 656503 720 Air Jordan Future Volt White Air Jordan 14 Retro White Sport Red Black Air Jordan 5 Light Graphite White Wolf Grey Air Jordan 6 Rings Powder Blue Nike Air Foamposite Onered Supreme Air Jordan Spizike Challenge Red Sailing does not require you to invest in a boat. at least not in the beginning. You can start off by taking up some form of sailing lesson and when you are ready to take to the waters, you can easily charter a boat. If you are still not comfortable, you can always engage the help of a captain and a crew if you choose to. When you believe that you are ready to commit, it is the time to consider buying or chartering a boat. Depending on your needs, your decision on whether to buy or rent will differ. For a start, it is often advisable to get a used boat as newcomers tend to make mistakes during the first few trips. When such minor accidents do occur, they will be much easier to bear if your investment has not been substantial. Besides that, it is also timely for you as a potential boat owner to learn how to take care of your boat. If not, you definitely have to factor the cost of hiring a boat mechanic to help you maintain your investment. Your boat is likely to be parked in your local sailing club. As such, you need to factor in the cost of membership fees of belonging to one too. Some clubs offer courses on helping you to learn sailing or the rules of the seas. It is advisable that you sign up for these courses. For sailing to be fun, you need to have the right clothing and footwear on deck. Shoes for example should be able to ensure your firm footing while being water resistant. At the same time, your life jackets and first aid equipment should be properly prepared too. Sailing in the sea can be an adventure as the weather can change drastically. It is therefore important that your clothings can be adaptable to such weather conditions. 440892 307 Women Size Air Jordan 5 Retro Tropical Teal 2013,Letting your older child take care of her siblings can be a really bonding experience for them as long as you do it right and don't take advantage Being trusted enough to babysit is a milestone moment for your oldest child and it's a chore that's left to many teenagers who are left home alone in the couple of hours between school ending and Mum and Dad getting home in the evening. Unfortunately it's all too easy for parents to take advantage without acknowledging the stress it can place on their children. Does he have the same respect for his older sibling? He might well be happy to sit and watch a DVD with her, but will he do what he's told when it's time to do his homework, shower and go to bed? You don't want a situation where your older child is having to use threats or force to get her sibling to co operate. Has she had a practice run?Don't drop your teenager in the deep end: ease her in gently by leaving her in charge for an hour or so while you run some quick errands. Alternately, let her and her little brother or sister walk the dog together and get a behaviour report from your teen when they get back home. Is she familiar with the routine?Any Mum and Dad going out for a meal will take the babysitter through their children's routine: what happens when, and how. Don't just assume your older child will be aware of every single step just because she lives I the same house as you! It's likely she's been glued to the TV every time you've been singing that special song that guarantees tantrum free tooth brushing Does she know what's required?Make your expectations crystal clear to your older child: she needs to know exactly how she and her younger sibling are supposed to spend the time while you're out, and what the limits are. For example, you might prefer she plays with him instead of letting him watch TV all evening; and you might rather she didn't make phone calls to friends or lose herself in the Internet while she's supposed to be watching him. Can she cope with the emotional impact?Although babysitting can help older children bond more closely with younger sibling they may not usually have much time for, caring for young children is tiring and stressful at times. Regularly being left in charge of several younger brothers and sisters for long periods of time can seriously damage the sibling relationship, especially if it means your older child is getting no time to complete homework assignments and socialise with her own friends. Is she steady?How would she cope in an emergency? Is she sensible enough not to panic if anything happens that puts her and her siblings at risk and does she know how to contact the emergency services or your doctor in case of any accidents? Would she know what to do if her little brother or sister swallowed a poisonous substance, or was choking? Is she familiar with your fire escape plan, and does she know where the fire extinguishers are and how to use them? Before you leave her alone with her siblings, role play some emergency situations to ensure she knows what to do. Does she know CPR?It's probably one of the first things you'd ask a sitter for hire before you entrusted your children to her care but does your teenager know it, and does she have basic first aid skills?
Orders Over 99 For Freeshipping 440892 307 Women Size Air Jordan 5 Retro Tropical Teal 2013,Air Jordan 11 Low White Black Red MORE PHOTOS Despite the final score, the Jordan High boys basketball team pushed Poly to the limit on Thursday night and perhaps that's the best thing that could have happened to them. Roschon Prince scored 10 of his 20 points in the decisive third quarter and Chris Croom also had 14 points as the Jackrabbits ended the regular season by beating the Panthers 75 62 in a Moore League game at Poly High. The Jackrabbits (23 1, 12 0), who are second in the CIF Southern Section Division I AA rankings, end the regular season on a 20 game winning streak and they also stretched their Moore League winning streak to 38 games dating to the 2008 09 season. They will now wait until Sunday when the CIF Southern Section pairings are announced to find out their next opponent. Poly almost certainly will be seeded second behind top ranked Mater Dei. "Winning the CIF championship is one of our goals and I think our regular season has prepared us to do that," Jackrabbits coach Sharrief Metoyer said. "You have to win five games in the playoffs to accomplish that goal and we know those games are going to be grueling just like tonight. "Tonight was a very close game, and in the playoffs they're all going to be close games. Luckily for us, we made just enough plays to win. You have to give Jordan a lot of credit, they're tough." The Panthers (17 9, 8 4), who entered the night ranked 14th in I AA, led 17 15 after the first quarter but Poly came back to take a 34 33 lead at halftime. In the third quarter, the Jackrabbits took over. Prince gave Poly a 45 39 lead after he scored a basket and Jordan Bell followed with another hoop to go up by eight points. Moments later, Joshua Munzon made a 3 pointer, Prince followed with a three point play and Munzon made another 3 pointer and suddenly the Jackrabbits were up 56 43 with three minutes left in the third quarter. Jordan however wouldn't go down without a fight. The Panthers made a furious rally in the fourth quarter, shaving the lead to just five points at 62 57 with 4:49 left in the game after Deontae North scored a basket. They then cut the lead to 63 59 after Roderick Shannon made a free throw with exactly four minutes left, but Bell answered with a dunk and Reuben Strickland made a running jumper in the lane to push their lead back to 67 59 with two minutes left in the game. "They're way bigger than us," Jordan coach Joel Rosborough said. "Our tallest guy is 6 foot 1 and their length took over the game at the end. I'm proud of the way we fought back but we still have a long way to go. "Next up for us is the playoffs and we're going to have fun. This time of the year is a bonus for us and we're going to go out there next week, work hard and give it everything we got, and we'll see how far we can go." 440892 307 Women Size Air Jordan 5 Retro Tropical Teal 2013 Back to Main MenuWeather HomeToday Forecast5 Day ForecastSchool Event ClosuresBack to Main MenuCrime Safety HomePolice BlotterReported CrimesCity of SyracuseNorth Suburbs Oswego CountyEast Suburbs Madison CountyWest Suburbs Cayuga CountyCNY TrafficBack to Main MenuPhotos HomePhoto EssaysBuy Photo ReprintsYour PhotosBack to Main MenuVideos HomeNews VideosSports VideosHigh School Sports VideosEntertainment VideosLiving VideosChoose Freewill / Creative CommonsGarrett Dutton, better known by his stage name G.
