I walk the dogs over to the alley to assess the damage. one carport gone, neighboring garage (an older type – probably not big enough to hold a car) will probably be scrapped. The back addition to the house looks structurally sound but probably isn’t. Both neighboring properties’ siding is buckled and peeled. The WOW Internet /Cable guy is working on the lines (burned down) and I’m wondereing when SBC will get phone service going again. Thank god for ubiquitous mobile phones, cause there would’ve been a whole lot of 911 calls that didn’t get through last night.

On April 19, 2005, Oregon prosecutors filed aggravated vehicular homicide against Angelique Dipman, 27, a day after the death of 5-year-old Dameatrius McCreary.
The crash happened on a Thursday afternoon around 3:30pm on Starr Avenue in Oregon, USA. Police say a school bus stopped, with warning lights on and stop sign out, to let McCreary off the bus. Ohio laws require drivers to stop, but police say 27-year-old Dipman drove past the bus, and hit McCreary, throwing him several feet into the air. McCreary was taken by helicopter to The Toledo Hospital where doctors pronounced him dead.
"My prayers go out to the family," said Dipman as she was led into police headquarters by her attorney. When asked what happened, she reiterated, "I have no other comment other than my prayers go out to the family."
Police believe Dipman was on her cell phone at the time of the accident which may have distracted her. "You just don’t drive by a stopped school bus with the lights flashing unless there is some distraction in some shape or form," said Oregon Police Chief Tom Gulch. The mother of Dameatrius, Sandra TenEyck, agreed by saying "This woman was on a cell phone. She didn’t stop for a bus that had its stop sign out. I mean you have to see that. There’s no way."
Local News Channel 11 checked Dipman’s driving record and found her license has been suspended twice, she has been cited for speeding 4 times, and also received a child restraint citation in the past.
Dipman appeared for an arraignment in Oregon Municipal Court, pleading not guilty to the charge of aggravated vehicular homicide. She will be back in court on June 27th.
"I think you and I sitting here or anybody else is guilty of using a cell phone as we’re driving," said Mayor Marge Brown of Oregon. That’s why Brown thinks the city should consider enacting a law banning the use of cell phones while driving. "How many others are distracted by cell phones and usage? How many others are paying attention, either eating, doing make-up, radio blasting or on the cell phone? How many accidents have been caused because of that?" Brown asks.
In 2003, 33 states introduced bills that would ban the use of hand-held cell phones while driving. To date New York is the only state with such a ban. It went into effect in December 2001.
"Actual Driving And Talking Accidents" can be found on the website of the syndicated National Public Radio show "Car Talk."

Katy Perry and One Direction’s performances, Will Smith’s hosting skills and more have us pumped for Saturday night.
By Kara Warner
This year’s Kids’ Choice Awards are going to be as action-packed as ever, with Will Smith as host, two killer performers lined up and a slew of celebrities expected to be in attendance.
Here are the five things we’re looking forward to during the live show at 8 p.m. Saturday:
Katy Perry’s Performance
Perry is not only one of this year’s top nominees, but the “Teenage Dream” singer will also take the stage at USC’s Galen Center to present and perform. So what song will she sing? What will she wear? Will her hair still be blue? One of Perry’s biggest hits, “Firework,” is up for Favorite Song. She is also nominated for Favorite Female Singer and Favorite Voice in an Animated Movie for her role in “The Smurfs.”
A Host With Big Willie Style
Nickelodeon hit the jackpot of high-profile celeb hosts in landing Will Smith for their master of ceremonies this year. Although he’s one of the biggest stars around, it’s been awhile since we’ve seen the former Fresh Prince. We’ve seen a lot of his son Jaden and daughter Willow, who are becoming big stars in their own right, but we are psyched to see what Smith has planned as host. Will he be joined onstage by his kids? Will he incorporate a few of his famous friends into the act, like Tom Cruise? Will we get a sneak peek at new footage from the upcoming “Men in Black III”? We’ll have to wait and see.
One Direction Break Hearts Stateside
The cute and charming lads of “it” boy band One Direction will no doubt bring the house down with whatever they perform on the show. A word of advice to the lucky folks attending the show: Think about bringing earplugs to protect yourself from the enthusiastic, high-pitched screams that will take over the Galen Center the instant the British pop group takes the stage. And they’re not taking the opportunity lightly. “Kids’ Choice is the biggest night on Nickelodeon,” Niall Horan told MTV News about the magnitude of their appearance on the show. “All the big stars are going to be there, and when we found out it was just us and Katy Perry performing, we were like, ‘Geez, this is a big deal.’ ”
An Appearance By a First Lady
Talk about upping the style and class factor! The fact that the very well-respected FLOTUS will be on hand to present Taylor Swift with an award is a really big deal. Michelle Obama will honor Swift with the Big Help Award, in recognition of her philanthropic efforts, including work with U.S. tornado and flood survivors. Obama herself was the recipient of the award in 2010, in recognition of her Let’s Move! Campaign, which champions healthier lifestyles for kids. And, as if that weren’t enough to establish her Nick cred, earlier this year, Obama also appeared on a special episode of “iCarly” to promote her Joining Forces initiative to support military families.
Who Will Get Slimed?
On to the most intriguing and entertaining part of the annual awards show: Who will get slimed? Despite the sticky, icky and total-mess factor that is involved with being covered from head to toe in the network’s trademark green slime, it is considered an honor to get hit with the goo, which is said to be a mixture of green Jell-O, shampoo, oatmeal and flour. The illustrious list of previously slimed celebs includes: Katy Perry, Will Smith, Tom Cruise, Justin Timberlake, the Jonas Brothers, Jackson Rathbone and Russell Brand. So who’s going down this year? Traditionally, the host is a prime target toward the end of the show, so we can probably count on seeing Smith covered in green, but who else? Maybe Perry or one of the presenters — Chris Rock, Emma Stone, Andrew Garfield, Zac Efron, Victoria Justice, Big Time Rush or Cee Lo Green.
Don’t miss the Kids’ Choice Awards on Saturday at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Nickelodeon.
