Coke County, Texas

Coke County is a county located on the Edwards Plateau in the U. S. state of Texas. As of the 2010 census, its population was 3,320, its county seat is Robert Lee. The county is named for Richard Coke, the 15th governor of Texas. Coke County was one of 46 prohibition, or dry, counties in the state of Texas, but passed a law allowing the sale of beer and wine in 2005. From about 1700 to the 1870s, Tonkawa, Lipan Apache and Kiowa roamed the county; these tribes settled in rock shelters in the river and creek valleys, leaving behind artifacts and caches of seeds, burial sites, river shells and deer bones, flint knives and points. In 1851, United States Army post Fort Chadbourne was established to protect the frontier, the fort was manned until the Civil War; the Butterfield Overland Mail ran through the area from 1858 to 1861. Between 1860 and the early 1880s, the only settlers in what became Coke County were ranchers attracted to open grazing land. J. J. Austin established his ranch headquarters near Sanco in 1875.

Pate Francher settled in the area in 1877. In 1882, the Texas and Pacific Railway began providing service to San Angelo, settlers started coming into the region in somewhat larger numbers. Severe drought in the 1880s led to its attendant issues. State authorities settled the disputes. A few years the county was named after Confederate soldier, Texas leader, U. S senator Richard Coke; the Texas Legislature established Coke County in 1889, out of Tom Green County. The county was organized that same year, with Hayrick as county seat; the county's first newspaper, the Hayrick Democrat, began publication in 1889, but was renamed the Rustler. In 1891, after an election, the new town of Robert Lee became the county seat. Robert E. Lee had once served at Fort Chadbourne; that same year, the county's newspaper moved to the new county seat and was renamed the Robert Lee Observer. Dr. D. W. Key started the town of Bronte, named after English writer Charlotte Brontë; the town was named Oso and Bronco. A post office was granted in 1890.

Silver, named after Silver Peak Summit, was settled between 1880 as a ranching hub. Early settlers were S. M. Conner, R. B. Allen, W. G. Jameson, W. R. Walker. Dr. Joseph Eaton Reed was for 50 years the only physician. Oil discovery and related industries created a boom in Silver in the mid-20th century. After the oil camps closed down in 1966, Silver’s population slipped drastically. Tennyson, named in honor of the British poet Alfred, Lord Tennyson was established in 1892, it received a post office two years later. The Kansas City and Orient Railway built tracks north from San Angelo in 1907, which benefited Tennyson and Fort Chadbourne. Cotton acreage peaked in 1910, but plunged during the 1920s, because of a boll weevil infestation. Expanding during the same period was the production of corn, wheat and fruit trees; the county population declined during the Great Depression. Oil was discovered in the county in 1942, by 1991, 209,281,131 barrels had been taken from Coke County lands. Tax money derived from oil profits helped the county to improve infrastructure and public facilities and services for its citizens.

Oil production accounts for the major share of income for the county. In 1995 Louis Jones murdered United States Army soldier Tracie Joy McBride in Coke County after having kidnapped her from Goodfellow Air Force Base in San Angelo, Texas. According to the United States Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 928 square miles, of which 911 square miles are land and 17 square miles are covered by water. U. S.

Gandhinagar Airport

Gandhinagar Airport was a public airport serving the city of Nashik, in the state of Maharashtra, India until when it was taken over by the Indian Army to convert the airport into a Military Airbase.. Indian Airlines used to operate a daily flight between Nashik and Mumbai from 1972 to 1989. Vayudoot took over and operated a Dornier 228 till June 1992. For five years, there was no air service available from Nashik, till April 1997, when the Maharashtra-Span Air — a joint venture of state government and Span Aviation Ltd — inaugurated its daily service to Mumbai, it operated a 12-seater Beechcraft on the route as a part of the government's plan to connect important districts in the state by air. The service was abruptly discontinued on 30 June 1997; the airfield is now converted into a full-fledged Army Aviation Base where training is imparted to all candidates at the Combat Army Aviation Training School at Nashik. The Cheetah helicopter simulator has been set up at Combat Army Aviation Training School.

It is expected to reduce substantial cost in training and to reduce pilot risk during training. The simulator is designed to expose the trainee to different weather conditions like snow, rain and different terrains in addition to night flying training in handling emergencies, tactical handling of the flying machine, its different maneuvers and more; the project to install a simulator was proposed in December 2000 and approved in April 2002, with CATS Nashik chosen as the centre for installation. Macmet Technologies Ltd, which won the bid over Hindustan Aeronautics Limited, completed the project by 2005 at a cost of Rs 16.26 crore. After stringent checks, the facility was accepted by the army in December 2005. Ozar Airport

Larry Ashmead

Lawrence Peel "Larry" Ashmead was an American book editor who helped create 100 books a year featuring such authors as Isaac Asimov, Quentin Crisp, Tony Hillerman, Susan Isaacs, Michael Korda, Helen Van Slyke, at a string of publishers including Doubleday, Simon & Schuster, Harper & Row and its successor HarperCollins. Ashmead was born on July 1932, in Rochester, New York, he recalled having been a model for a Kodak photo and seeing an enlargement of his picture blown up to billboard size when visiting Grand Central Terminal and assumed that they did that for all visitors. When he was nine years old he heard a writer speak at a local library and was less fascinated by the author's writing than by the fact that he worked amid the skyscrapers of Manhattan editing books, he left after two years to serve in the United States Army. After completing his military service, he studied for a doctorate in geology from Yale University as part of a program where the cost of his education was covered by an oil company.

He did not complete his Ph. D, though he was expected to work for the company after completing his education, he decided to abandon the field, making what he called the "only bold decision of my life", he went to work as an assistant for Doubleday, where his scientific education led him to be given an assignment to work on a book written by Isaac Asimov in which Ashmead identified many errors that he pointed out to the author. Though Asimov was able to show in all cases that his writing was correct, he was impressed that anyone would devote so much attention to a manuscript and asked that Ashmead be assigned to edit his books. Asimov dedicated both the Old and New Testament volumes of his book Asimov's Guide to the Bible to Ashmead. Ashmead would place advertisements in newspapers in towns where he was going to visit and would listen to proposals for books, he was receptive to book ideas generated by co-workers, ended up publishing several books for Kate Morgenroth, a fellow employee at Harper to good reviews.

He met business executive Helen Van Slyke at a dinner party and ended up publishing several of her books, which sold in the millions. While visiting London, Ashmead saw a proposal for a book about the Oxford English Dictionary, going to be rejected by the publisher. Ashmead said "I can make this a bestseller" and worked with the author, Simon Winchester, to create the bestselling book The Professor and the Madman. Susan Isaacs credited him with the success of her books, saying in addition to "finding what was wrong", Ashmead "also knew what wasn't there." Michael Korda, a novelist, editor-in-Chief of Simon & Schuster and whose books were edited by Ashmead, said he had "possibly the most clear and precise idea of what should be a book and how to get at it that I've known in an editor" and credited Ashmead with publishing 100 books a year, when many could only produce 20 each year. After retiring from the editing field, he wrote the 2007 book Bertha Venation: And Hundreds of Other Funny Names of Real People, published by HarperCollins, featuring such people as Hedda Lettuce and Stan Dupp, as well as a dentist named Dr. Fang and Jaime Cardinal Sin of the Philippines.

A resident of Stuyvesant, New York, Ashmead died at age 78 on September 3, 2010, in Columbia County, New York due to pneumonia. His partner, Walter Mathews, had died in 2004. In 2010, The Ashmead Award was created to nurture the career of a promising young editor in the field of book publishing, as an effort to recognize and continue the tradition of Ashmead’s long history of mentoring young editors and helping them develop their careers in publishing. Winners of the award are given a scholarship to attend the Yale Publishing course

Wroxeter

Wroxeter is a village in Shropshire, which forms part of the civil parish of Wroxeter and Uppington, beside the River Severn, 5 miles south-east of Shrewsbury. Viroconium Cornoviorum, the fourth largest city in Roman Britain, was sited here, is being excavated. Roman Wroxeter, near the end of the Watling Street Roman road that ran across England from Dubris, was a key frontier position lying on the bank of the Severn river whose valley penetrated deep into Wales, on a route to the south leading to the Wye valley. Archaeology has shown that the site of the city first was established about AD 55 as a frontier post for a Thracian legionary cohort located at a fort near the Severn river crossing. A few years a legionary fortress was built within the site of the city for the Legio XIV Gemina during their invasion of Wales; the local British tribe of the Cornovii had their original capital at the hillfort on the Wrekin. When the Cornovii were subdued their capital was moved to Wroxeter and given its Roman name.

This legion XIV Gemina was replaced by the Legio XX Valeria Victrix which in turn relocated to Chester around AD 88. As the military abandoned the fortress the site was taken over by the Cornovians' civilian settlement; the name of the settlement, meaning "Viroconium of the Cornovians", preserves a native Brittonic name, reconstructed as *Uiroconion, where *Uiro-ku is believed to have been a masculine given name meaning "werewolf". Viroconium prospered over the next century, with the construction of many public buildings, including thermae and a colonnaded forum. At its peak, it is thought to have been the 4th-largest settlement in Roman Britain, with a population of more than 15,000; the Roman city is first documented in Ptolemy's 2nd century Geography as one of the cities of the Cornovii tribe, along with Chester. Following the Roman withdrawal from Britain around AD 410, the Cornovians seem to have divided into Pengwern and Powys; the minor Magonsæte sub-kingdom emerged in the area in the interlude between Powysian and Mercian rule.

Viroconium may have served as the early post-Roman capital of Powys prior to its removal to Mathrafal sometime before 717, following famine and plague in the area. The city has been variously identified with the Cair Urnarc and Cair Guricon which appeared in the 9th-century History of the Britons's list of the 28 cities of Britain. N. J. Higham proposes that Wroxeter became the eponymous capital of an early sub-Roman kingdom known as the Wrocensaete, which he asserts was the successor territorial unit to Cornovia; the literal meaning of Wrocensaete is'those dwelling at Wrocen', which Higham interprets as Wroxeter. It may refer quite to the royal court itself, in the first instance, only by extension to the territory administered from the court; the Roman city was rediscovered in 1859. A replica Roman villa was constructed in 2010 for a Channel 4 television programme called Rome Wasn't Built in a Day and was opened to the public on 19 February 2011. At the centre of Wroxeter village is Saint Andrew's parish church, some of, built from re-used Roman masonry.

The oldest visible section of the church is the Anglo-Saxon part of the north wall, built of Roman monumental stone blocks. The chancel and the lower part of the tower are Norman; the gatepiers to the churchyard are a pair of Roman columns and the font in the church was made by hollowing out the capital of a Roman column. Additions to the church incorporate remains of an Anglo-Saxon preaching cross and carvings salvaged from nearby Haughmond Abbey following the Dissolution of the Monasteries; the west window, bearing figures of St Andrew and St George, designed by the workshops of Morris & Co. is a parish war memorial, as is a brass plaque listing parish men who died serving in World War I, one of whom, Captain C. W. Wolseley-Jenkins, has an individual memorial plaque in the east end. St. Andrew's is now managed by The Churches Conservation Trust. St. Andrew's parish is now united with that of Eaton Constantine. A. E. Housman visited the site and was impressed enough to write of "when Uricon the city stood", the poem ending "Today the Roman and his trouble Are ashes under Uricon."Bernard Cornwell has the main character of The Saxon Stories visit Wroxeter in Death of Kings, referring to it as an ancient Roman city, "as big as London" and using it as an illustration of his pagan beliefs that the World will end in chaos.

The village had a football team, Wroxeter Rovers FC. In 2017, the club was renamed to "Shrewsbury Juniors FC", in order to provide a senior football team for kids progressing through the club's junior football system to take part in after the age of 16-17; the club compete in the Shropshire Premier League.

Law of Connecticut

The law of Connecticut is the system of law and legal precedent of the U. S. state of Connecticut. Sources of law include the Constitution of the Connecticut General Statutes; the Fundamental Orders were adopted by the Connecticut Colony council on January 14, 1639 OS. The fundamental orders describe the government set up by the Connecticut River towns, setting its structure and powers, they wanted the government to have access to the open ocean for trading. The Orders have the features of a written constitution and are considered by some as the first written Constitution in the Western tradition. Thus, Connecticut earned its nickname of The Constitution State. Connecticut historian John Fiske was the first to claim that the Fundamental Orders were the first written Constitution, a claim disputed by some modern historians; the orders were transcribed into the official colony records by the colony's secretary Thomas Welles. It was a Constitution. However, this Order gave men more voting rights and made more men eligible to run for elected positions.

The first revision of the early laws and orders of Connecticut was not printed. Prior to the revision of 1672, printed in 1675, the laws and orders of the General Court were promulgated only by manuscript copies, they were recorded in the public records of the court, in the town records, it was made the duty of the constables of the several towns to publish such laws as should be made from time to time, annually, to read the capital news at some public meeting. The laws were few and simple, yet they were such as the exigencies of the commonwealth required, such as may be supposed to exist in the infancy of civil governments; the Connecticut Supreme Court struck down the "Blue Laws" in 1979 as an unconstitutional breach of the due process and equal protection clauses of the United States Constitution. Since the famous constitution of 1818 was adopted, revisions to the Connecticut General Statutes have occurred at intervals of a few years. In 1835, references to judicial decisions were printed for the first time.

The districts were rearranged in 1842. Booth, served again in the same way in 1864; this revision was known as that of 1865. Before many years had passed, the need of another revision was felt, another commission was appointed to make a new revision, with the view to classifying and supplying omissions and giving notes and references according to its judgment. Many ancient titles which had become obsolete, as Concerning Slavery Taverners, the like, were left out; this was the revision of 1875. The Constitution of the State of Connecticut is the basic governing document of the U. S. state of Connecticut. It was approved by referendum on December 14, 1965, proclaimed by the governor as adopted on December 30, it has been amended 31 times. This constitution replaced the earlier constitution of 1818, it is the state's second constitution since the establishment of the United States. An earlier constitution dating from colonial times, the Fundamental Orders of Connecticut, remained the basis of government as Connecticut gained its independence from Great Britain, existed as an independent polity, joined the United States.

The Connecticut General Statutes are official General Statutes of the U. S. state of Connecticut. Revised to 2017, the statutes contain all of Connecticut's public acts and certain special acts of the public nature, the Constitution of the United States, the Amendments to the Constitution of the United States, the Constitution of the State of Connecticut, including its 31 amendments adopted since 1965. Locally elected representatives develop Local ordinances to govern cities and towns; the town ordinances include noise control and zoning guidelines. However, the State of Connecticut does provide statewide ordinances for noise control as well.
