All the local news outlets are covering it.  All the daytime court-tv shows are covering it.  Isn't the FBI involved, too?  What else are you expecting?

I know it’s getting some play, but I figured it would be everywhere. Given the likely magnitude of what’s to come from thisn

I'm not sure she is innocent per se, but at the very least this whole thing is mismanaged, and potentially massively covered up. I don't see how she is convicted. 

 

potentially? I am sure it is just a coincidence that 2 people who were there that night destroyed their cell phones the day before they were ordered to be turned over.

It’s fascinating. I agree, I can’t see how she gets convicted. Too many weird things to not cast reasonable doubt.  The state police investigator was obviously biased too.

In the end it’s not whether she did it or not, it’s whether they proved she did it.  And that seems to be a stretch right now.

Just saying. It's such a bizarre and fucked up incident all around. I honestly feel for the family of the victim.....will they ever find out what truly happened?

I highly doubt it. too much to lose for the people that were actually involved.

Exactly! And larger and larger pieces of evidence just keep magically appearing in the yard WEEKS later. If those officers are really that incompetent, and far worse (DRUNK IDIOTS) she deserves to get off

I think biased is a huge understatement. They act like a pack of idiot high schoolers who now have a responsibility to public safety... that they couldn't give two shits about because of their pack mentality power trip

Should I do something to combat the heat? Water more? Not sure, haven't had them a long time, you have more experience than me.

What do you have growing there? I dont think about watering established trees unless my soil moisture sensor is down around 80-100cb. The roots can go down and find water.

Two apple, one peach and one pear, had them about 4-5 years now, never saw so much fruit this early except one year with the peach tree,

The hotel/casino I’m staying at in Green Bay is right between the airport and the GRB office. One of the people who came out for this conference walked from the airport to the hotel after his flight. I’m the blue dot.

Any forestry mensuration enthusiasts in here? I went across the river on family land to neighbor's property - cross the river - very rural (I snooped, don't tell!), and found the biggest Bigtooth Aspen I've ever seen. Not old growth, but (I think?) fairly old second growth - single stem exceeds 30" in diameter at breast height in forest that has much bigger single stem White Pines, and, to be frank, I I think it's over 120ft in height, but I can't confirm that, don't own the optical gear. I feel like that's pretty f'ing large for that species? Or no?

Try the big tree site from UNH extension.

Guilty as charged.
In 1991, while camping at Donnell Pond (a few miles east from Ellsworth) with my daughter, I saw several bigtooth aspen more than 30" dbh, just west from the pond and north of Schoodic Mountain.  From a timber aspect, bigtooth is a much better tree than quaking aspen - less defect, better form, longer lived.  Those big ones I saw 33 years ago were in a middle-aged stand (est. 60-70 yr) and might still be growing.  That area is almost impossible to reach for harvesting, and Public Lands has no plans to try, both due to terrain and its proximity to one of the heavily used recreational lake in that region.

Bigtooth leaves open 2-3 weeks after quaking, and the whitish-green "fur" on the undersides of the new leaves looks like silver from a distance.  In mid-May the clonal clumps can be spotted from miles away.

I learned em as tulip poplars, pretty sure it's the same thing. I've come across a few around here that really stand out compared to what's growing around them, beasts. Great as paint grade hardwood if you can get it clear and dried properly.

I'm going to measure this tulip poplar at my lake cabin in NW NJ when I head there in a few days. This thing is an absolute monster of a tree and one of the largest in the area. 

There are also some huge poplars here in Branford as well.

Bigtoothed Aspen and Tulip Poplars are two different trees.

Alright, I wasn't sure. I'm coming from a perspective of hardwood lumber in which they are both lumped in together along with a few other types just as 'poplar'. Always looking to learn more.
