'Cake Boss' Buddy Valastro
During the proceedings, he testified with regard to his accomplices in his criminal activities. Rodgers, and other persons did conspire and agreed to destroy by arson buildings, vehicles and property. Darren Todd Thurston will have his sentencing hearing for his guilty plea on 14 December, The entire court testimony can be read in United States vs.
Both were charged with 27 counts each, but the charges were stayed in when investigators decided to drop the case rather than disclose documents concerning another investigation. Chelsea Gerlach and Stanislas Meyerhoff were arraigned in federal court in Eugene, Oregon on 27 September and they are to be sentenced on 14 December when they will also be sentenced for other arson-related crimes to which they pleaded guilty in July.
Stanislas Meyerhoff pled guilty to 54 charges related to seven separate attacks. Prosecutors recommended that he be sentenced to 15 years and eight months. Chelsea Gerlach pleaded guilty to 18 charges in five separate attacks. After being arrested, she apologized for the harm and fear created by her actions, which she said were motivated by "a deep sense of despair and anger at the deteriorating state of the global environment.
At the time of her arrest, she was selling drugs in Portland with her current boyfriend Darren Todd Thurston. Thus far, drug charges are not pending with either Gerlach or Thurston. Under their plea deals, they agreed to have charges from the Vail arson transferred from Colorado to Oregon to be settled along with their other cases.
They freely admitted to their participating in the firebombing fire to the Vail ski resort restaurant in as part of an Earth Liberation Front campaign. Rubin, remain at large. The arson at Vail, Colorado brought national attention to the secretive Earth Liberation Front and other similar domestic terrorist groups.
The firebombing of the ski lodge at Vail is just one of 18 separate attacks that took place in the Northwest between and that the ELF claimed credit. Lacey Phillabaum pleaded guilty to conspiracy, arson, and use of a destructive device that destroyed the University of Washington's Center for Urban Horticulture in On 19 August , Lacey Phillabaum was sentenced to three years in federal prison and three years' probation. Additional information and photos of Lacey Phillabaum can be found on the Official Lacey Phillabaum website that is maintained by some of her friends.
Under the plea agreement, she received a sentence of five to seven years. Her trial is scheduled to begin on 11 February On 08 November , Joyanna Zacher, Nathan Block, Daniel McGowan and Jonathan Paul represented by Attorney Lauren Regan from the Civil Liberties Defense Center, appeared in federal court and entered guilty pleas and accepted responsibility for their roles in a series of environmentally motivated arsons in Oregon between and All four pled guilty to arson and conspiracy charges involving 13 members of the Earth Liberation Front and the Animal Liberation Front with the condition that they would not have to provide information or testify against anyone now or in the future.
There has been a push to have these people sentenced as Terrorists under terrorist enhancement sentencing guidelines. But there are still people that will not acknowledge the actions of these people.
A government sentencing memo describes Meyerhoff as a career anarchist and recommends a sentence of 16 years. But civil rights attorney Lauren Regan from the Civil Liberties Defense Center says Meyerhoff got involved in environmental activism mainly to impress women.
Does Lauren Regan really believe what she is saying? Are these the actions that she finds impressive in a person? It could be true because when William Rodgers was 26, he met Chelsea Dawn Gerlach who was 16 at the time and he began a sexual relationship with her. A 26 year old man having a sexual relationship with a 16 year old girl. Does anyone see anything wrong with this? You have to wonder what Chelsea's parents thought about sending her to an Earth First!
This is just another example of the Liberal mindset that causes the public to have little faith in the legal system. We noticed that she did not mention that in her argument. It would be interesting to hear her explain away that fact. Meyerhoff's attorney, Terri Wood, says Meyerhoff and his co-defendants, acting as members of the Earth Liberation Front, took precautions to avoid injuring others.
And here we are selfishly thinking that their destructive activities were wrong. What were we thinking? District Judge Ann Aiken sentenced radical environmentalists to sentences that were called acts of terrorism. On 19 August , Lacey Phillabaum was sentenced to three years in federal prison and three years probation. At the sentencing, she cried in court, but composed herself enough to apologize to her victims.
Jonathan Paul was sentenced to 51 months for an ALF arson on a horse meat plant. To try and effect the changes by legal methods that they believed was the right course of action and policy never entered into their plans or strategy. They never considered using legal methods, but preferred to engage in illegal actions because of some romantic notion or just selfish motives knowing that the rest of the world is not behind them.
They see these acts as nothing but non-violent activism. But it does make you wonder how would they feel if these acts were aimed toward them? A federal appeals court upheld a sentence of nearly four years for Kendell Tankersley, part of a multistate arson spree directed at U. Forest Service offices and private businesses. She and about 15 co-defendants were members of the Earth Liberation Front and a Eugene-based group called "The Family ".
Tankersley, then 28 and preparing for medical school, pleaded guilty in to charges including conspiracy to commit arson from through The court also rejected sentence appeals of co-defendants Kevin Tubbs, sentenced to more than 12 years, and Jonathan Paul, sentenced to more than 4 years.
Stanislas Meyerhoff Plea Agreement. Suzanne Savoie Plea Agreement. Sarah Kendall Harvey Plea Agreement. Darren Thurston Plea Agreement. Kevin Tubbs Plea Agreement. When Chelsea Gerlach was 16 she attended an Earth First! Rodgers, an instructor who referred to himself as Avalon.
It was at this retreat where she began a sexual relationship with William Rodgers who was 10 years her senior when she joined the Earth Liberation Front at age It was here where she was introduced to the world of the sabotage in the name of protecting the environment also known as "Monkey Wrenching". Rodgers later committed suicide in jail in after investigators persuaded one of its members to become an informant. Gerlach and nine others were facing sentences for their parts in the fires, which include forest ranger stations, meat packing plants, wild horse corrals, lumber mill offices, research facilities and an SUV dealer.
At first, prosecutors want a federal judge to declare them terrorists. This was something defense attorneys argued never happened in the other 1, arsons nationwide claimed by Earth Liberation Front and Animal Liberation Front. They continued to argue that adding this terrorist label was more about politics than prison time. Judge Ann Aiken will hear arguments on 15 May in U.
District Court in Eugene on a motion by the government to add terrorism enhancement to sentencing guidelines for the six men and four women who have already admitted to their role and pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy and arson.
These charges carry sentences ranging from three to 16 years. A ruling that adds the label of "terrorists" is will probably not add to the time they spend behind bars, but it could send them to tougher prisons. That's why this case is so very different. Prosecutors argue that although the defendants were never convicted of terrorism, they qualify for the label because at least one of the fires each of them set was intended to retaliate against government policy.
Forest Service plan to cut down trees burned by the Warner Creek fire. Activists wanted the trees left standing.
By , even though members of the "The Family" had gone dormant, at least temporarily, out of fear of getting caught, their sympathies had not changed. Gerlach bought numerous firearms at a Las Vegas gun show in that she cached and Daniel McGowan mailed out copies of a manual William Rodgers wrote on building detonators to underground distributors. The Defense filed papers countering that none of the fires killed or injured anyone.
They claimed that the terrorism enhancement is nothing more than an avenue for the government to claim a victory in its war on terror. Attorney for Stanislas G. Meyerhoff, Terri Wood said, "The Government has Attorney General Alberto Gonzales' political agenda to advance with this case, and nothing else to lose if the Court declines to impose the enhancement.
Attorney Terri Wood also said that by branding the defendants with Terrorism Enhancement will officially label them as "Terrorists" and from the Bureau of Prisons perspective, this will likely result in high security designations that will drastically increase the risk of physical and sexual assault against cooperating defendants like Mr. Meyerhoff enrolled in college in Virginia. McGowan worked for a women's advocacy law firm in New York City. After years of investigation that seemed stalled most of the time, investigators found one of "The Family" willing to wear a wire.
Jake Ferguson, with a pentagram tattoo on his head, searched out other Family members. The recordings provided investigators the evidence that they needed. After being arrested, McGowan told investigators he threw cream pies at the president of the Sierra Club, uprooted genetically modified corn, and how he helped plan the World Trade Organization riots in Seattle before joining "The Family" , in He admitted to his involvement in secret meetings and the setting fires at a lumber mill office and a tree farm.
Apparently his family did not know anything about his terrorist actions. His confession came as a total surprise to his sister, Lisa McGowan.
It's not the same thing. But the fact remains that it is Arson The exceptions are within the elitist Left-Wing thought process that does not see the law as being applicable to them. The truth is these are acts of Terrorism. The fact that no one was injured or killed was just a matter of luck. Firefighters are killed every year trying to put out fires. Take note how these arsonists never gave the people in this profession any thought or concern at all. These people "Firebombed" these buildings!
It was pure luck that no one was hurt. But success does come at a cost. Many people may be surprised to know that the two oldest Osmond brothers, George Virl and Tom, were born hearing impaired. In her book, Marie recalls how her daughter Jessica, whom she adopted, revealed that she was attracted to girls when she was 17 and that she is a member of the LGBT community. Marie was upset at first explaining that she did not want her daughter to have to get judged by others for her orientation.
That meant that he did not drink, partake in illegal substances, or even use swear words as it was in violation of his principles. Donny has said that he is proud that he resisted all of the temptations of the Hollywood lifestyle that so many other stars have taken part in which has often negatively affected their lives.
I grew up fast. Marie Osmond is only human and just like everyone else she has had highs and lows in her lifetime.
She did not get to experience a normal childhood or dating life like many of her peers but she has said that she is at peace with herself. Marie is able to see the truth and now that no one can have it all. Part of being famous is having famous friends. This was the case for the Osmonds as Donny had a close friendship with the king of pop, Michael Jackson.
Osmond said that he recalls fond memories of the time he spent with Michael. One of those memories was at an award show when Donny was Many celebrities make various demands and Marie is no different.
Some celebrities might request a certain food on set or a separate dressing room. When Marie does shows or interviews, she makes sure to tell producers and lighting directors that she wants to be lit in an angle that shows her good side. This request is actually pretty understable and we bet Marie asks nicely. As we mentioned before, Jimmy had a very successful hit in the U. However, this is not the case and Jimmy claimed that he never saw a dime from his famous song.
Compared to what recording artists make today, this is very surprising. They earned the money through many different ways including television appearances, movies, and live concerts and performances. While they may have not made much from their album sales, we would not worry too much as it seems the family is doing just fine in terms of finances. While we hope Marie is not a diva, she did ask for a bigger dressing room for her show in the Flamingo hotel.
However she had a good reason. Marie wanted a larger room so that more kids could fit. Since she spent so much time there as it is her job and she wanted a place where her family could visit including her pets.
It looks like Jimmy did see some of his earnings eventually as he is known for buying the odd car. While he has not gone over board, He bought a DeLorean which is a recreation of the car from the hit movie Back to the Future. Many fans have wondered why Donny was always seen wearing purple socks. People came up with multiple theories for the socks and some said that it was his lucky charm.
She gave each of her children different color socks to wear so everyone could tell which brother it was. Maybe that is why Marie is concerned with how she is lit in interviews today! Could you imagine getting advice from the great Lucille Ball? Donny was a religious person and did not want to violate his beliefs. Because of this, Donny stayed away from the world of illegal substances. Good for you Donny! Donny was dating a girl named Tammy and his brother a girl named Debbie in The pair went to an Elton John concert one day, and Donny looked at Debbie and knew he would marry her.
He stole her from his brother and the two ended up married. Marie Osmond was not looking very fit when she realized that she needed to take off a few pounds — both for health reasons as well as for her career. So she started on the nutrisystem diet, lost dozens of pounds, and became their spokesperson.
Oddly enough, she started nutrisystem around the same time as joining a running club as well as working out six hours a day. Interestingly, it turns out that the second born son was the first one to get married and have kids. The first born son only did so later. Additionally, Donald Jr is over two decades older than the youngest son Joshua. Deborah and Donny Osmond have five children together, all sons. Marie Osmond fell into a deep depression after the birth of her first child Brandon.
She at first thought that it was your standard case of the baby blues, something which occurs due to the hormonal imbalance from having a child. But it turns out that this bout lasted a really long time, signaling that she had postpartum depression. Marie now talks about it a lot, unafraid to share her story with other women going through the same thing. When the Osmond family first went out to Los Angeles in order to score a record deal, the producer they were supposed to meet with was too busy to see the family.
So, the father decided to take the family to Disneyland. The children saw the Dapper Dan barbershop quartet and spontaneously began to sing with them.
The head of guest relations at the park was so impressed that he asked the kids to perform on Disney After Dark that night. By the time rolled around, the family was not doing especially well financially. With two album flops, the family decided to build a TV set close to their house in Utah and got going on filming the Donny and Marie show. The show was pulled after only a couple of seasons, and sadly, no other networks would pick them up. However, instead of declaring bankruptcy, the family just worked harder and pulled themselves out of debt.
Have you ever received an Osmond Band Disk before as a gift? Was it within the past 15 years or so? If this is the case then you might want to check and see when the disk itself was made.

Archived from the original on 2 February These diets are generally associated with higher intakes of total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol because the protein is provided mainly by animal sources.
Beneficial effects on blood lipids and insulin resistance are due to the weight loss, not to the change in caloric composition. High-protein diets may also be associated with increased risk for coronary heart disease due to intakes of saturated fat, cholesterol, and other associated dietary factors.
Archived from the original on 29 August The Heart Foundation found that subjects in research studies achieved more weight and fat loss on the VLCARB [Very Low Carb] diets than on the conventional low fat diets, but this was only in the short term. The Heart Foundation's major concern with many VLCARB diets is not their restriction of carbohydrate or increase in protein, but their high and unrestricted saturated fat content, which may contribute to cardiovascular risk.
