By Maddy VitaleGwen Wilson isn’t quite old enough to drive, but the Ambler, Pa. girl has some superb taste in wheels.Yet, it seemed as if she liked a 1960 Chevy Corvette for one reason and one reason only.“It’s red,” Gwen, 2, said before her mom Jolaine Wilson scooped her up in her arms.Gwen’s dad, Nick Wilson, didn’t seem to mind that his daughter wanted to linger by the car.He gladly picked her up so the two of them could get a closer look.“It’s a beautiful car,” Nick Wilson said.The Wilson family came down to Ocean City for the weekend to visit family and were excited at the notion of going to the Jersey Cape Region Antique Automobile Club of America show Saturday on the grounds of the Ocean City Tabernacle.Spectators had a variety of cars to look at during the car show.The show, in its 63rd year, usually features 150 or more vintage cars. This year, with a rainy forecast, there were fewer cars, organizers said, but definitely enough wheels to keep car buffs intrigued as they perused the vintage cars. Dave Blyler, the Jersey Cape Region Antique Automobile Club of America president, said he was surprised by the number of antique cars that made it out this year.“The weather cut back on the number of cars,” Blyer said. “But for this weather, the turnout is great.”A parade on the Boardwalk was scheduled for 2 p.m., but Blyer pushed it up an hour due to a prediction of rains coming late in the afternoon.Spectators got their fill of a variety of cars. Muscle cars from the1960s and ’70s were the favorites. The classic automobiles from the 1920s and ’30s also shared the limelight and then there was an impressive looking black Cadillac from the 1970s that made car lovers stop for a second look.The paint on this beautifully restored 1931 Model A Ford is called Washington blue.Blyer’s sister Greta Liston, of Upper Township, watched as her grandchildren took a seat in their great grandparents’ 1931 Model A Ford. Sisters Maeve, 2, and Mallory Liston, and their cousin Ava Greck, 2, all of Upper Township, waved and giggled, from the pristine, restored car.For Lori and Mike D’Angelo, of Doylestown, Pa., on vacation in Ocean City, the show was a perfect family event. Their children Vivian, 4, and Evelyn, 2, looked at the cars until one caught Vivian’s eye. It was a 1944 toy Jeep. “You like that?” Lori D’Angelo asked her daughter, before the family went to check it out.The little girl smiled.Lori and Mike D’Angelo and their children Vivian, 4, and Evelyn, 2, of Pennsylvania, have some family fun.Car buffs like Mark and Sandra Masky, of Rochester, New York, love going to car shows.Like Vivian, they had their eye on a toy of sorts.It was a 1963 split window Sting Ray.“This is my favorite car here,” Mark Masky said.The couple, on vacation in Wildwood, said they come to the car show in Ocean City nearly every year.“We think it is really a nice show,” Sandra Masky said. When asked if they owned any antique cars, they both laughed. “No, just a new one,” Mark Masky said with a chuckle. “But we really like the old ones.”Mark and Sandra Masky check out this old Sting Ray.Muscle cars are a favorite with car buffs.Cousins Mallory Liston, 5, and Ava Greck 2, of Upper Township, hop in for a “spin.”This 1960 Corvette is a beauty.A car enthusiast takes a look at this 1939 Ford.last_img read more

Gov. Holcomb unsure whether suspension will disqualify Hill from remaining as A.G.

first_imgIndianaLocalNews Google+ Twitter Pinterest Facebook WhatsApp By Network Indiana – May 12, 2020 0 249 Facebook (Photo supplied/State of Indiana) Governor Holcomb says he’s reviewing whether the suspension of Curtis Hill’s law license disqualifies him from remaining as attorney general.Indiana law requires the attorney general to be a licensed attorney. For 30 days starting Monday, Hill won’t be, after the Indiana Supreme Court unanimously suspended his license over accusations of inappropriate touching of four women at an after-hours party.The court reduced Hill’s suspension from the two months a hearing officer had recommended. More significantly, Hill’s law license will be reinstated automatically when the suspension ends June 17. That means he’ll be an attorney in good standing again when he seeks renomination at the Republican convention three days later. Without automatic reinstatement, the process of regaining a law license can take months.But that still leaves the question of whether temporary ineligibility disqualifies Hill from holding the office. Holcomb notes he supported a legislative attempt to clarify the situation. The bill passed by the House would have forced out an attorney general suspended for more than a month. If it had passed, Hill’s eligibility would be secure. But the Senate scuttled the bill, and the Supreme Court’s disciplinary order didn’t address the issue.Holcomb says he’s seeking a “quick turnaround” from his in-house legal team in researching whether Hill can remain in office. He notes he called for Hill’s resignation when the incident first came to light in 2018.State Republican Chairman Kyle Hupfer says “Hoosiers would be best served” by picking someone other than Hill, and says he has faith in the delegates. Senate Minority Leader Tim Lanane says the best way to clear up who’s in charge is for Hill to resign.The ruling is the latest chapter in a two-year legal battle which began with a party at a downtown bar following the midnight adjournment of the 2018 General Assembly. Representative Mara Candelaria-Reardon (D-Munster) and three legislative staffers from both parties had accused Hill of varying degrees of sexually charged touching and comments, ranging from groping one woman’s bottom to letting his hand linger too long on another’s back.The justices rejected Hill’s argument that his actions were normal political glad-handing or a natural outgrowth of a party atmosphere in a crowded bar. They say there’s “ample evidence” Hill met the legal standard for battery and says that inherently creates concerns about his fitness to practice law.But the court says other attorneys disciplined for battery or drunken driving had their licenses reinstated automatically at the end of their suspensions. The hearing officer, former Supreme Court Justice Myra Selby, recommended a harsher penalty largely based on Hill’s attacks on the investigation after it became public, arguing it demonstrated a lack of remorse.The justices say Hill twice went a “step too far” with news releases, one calling the accusations “vicious” and another suggesting one accuser was coordinating her story when the woman had actually asked a friend to proofread an op-ed column detailing her account. But the court says those statements don’t add up to a failure to take responsibility, and notes legislative leaders had described Hill as apologetic in a private meeting before the accusations became public.The Indiana Disciplinary Commission introduced several email exchanges among members of Hill’s political team, brainstorming more aggressive attacks on what one email called “leakers and liars.” But the court says Hill’s involvement in those exchanges was minimal and notes many of those proposals were voted down by other members of the team.The court did scold Hill’s attorneys and the commission’s attorneys for similarly over-the-top language in their briefs, with Hill’s lawyers accusing the commission of a lack of integrity and the commission claiming Hill had perjured himself at his hearing. The court calls both accusations “entirely unfounded,” and says the volley of “hyperbolic” language surrounding them was a “frustrating distraction.”Decatur County Prosecutor Nate Harter and Zionsville attorney John Westercamp are challenging Hill for the Republican nomination. Harter, who served on Hill’s transition team in 2016, released a statement saying the decision shows Hill “has lost the trust of Hoosiers and has compromised his ability to do the important work we deserve.” Twitter Google+ WhatsApp Pinterest Gov.
