California Wild Fires

 

 

Living in California comes with many advantages such as beautiful sights and many luxuries but falls short of perfect when involving the natural beauty of the state.

The natural beauty struck a wrong cord with local residents in Middletown, CA, where a severe drought caused a massive wildfire to create destruction. Demolishing over 400 homes through California’s Lake County, the fire has brought many locals to tears.

The destruction has resulted in one causality while the other 13,000 people were displaced. At 61,000 acres, it was only 5% contained late Monday. About 200 miles away, southeast of Sacramento, the Butte wildfire, about 30% contained, has destroyed about 80 homes and burned 71,000 acres.

Beauty Kills.

Many residents would say that they loved the way they lived and all the natural sights that came with it but what do they say now? When nature has turned the tables on them.

According to USA Today, this is what one residential couple went through in the mist of the wildfire,

Barloggi and her husband, Ken, were at a barbecue Saturday when the fire broke out. They rushed home to collect their puppy, Miss Belle, and Ken’s heart medication, but they found their evacuation blocked by downed power lines.

Their single-family ranch home survived, perhaps helped by Ken’s decision to plow the fields around their house. “We got extremely lucky,” said Corie, 48.

Unfortunately, many families experienced the opposite of Barloggi and her husband Ken as they had to gather their belongings in five minutes. Five minutes only gave the animal loving families enough time to only retrieve their pets.

The images of the beautiful California sky are now filled with the daunting visuals of ash and lost achievements.

To aid for the displaced residents the American Red Cross has opened two shelters in Calistoga, Calif., at the Napa Fairgrounds and a high school.

California a state of beauty can also be a state of tears, hurt and lost achievements as Mother Nature take her role in the world.

College Foot Sniffer

 

Who would think that a foot fetish would lead to an article in the news? But for a Florida University it has caused extreme caution in their libraries.

A man in his late 40s or early 50s has been spotted around the Florida International University Library multiple times sniffing the feet of female students.

According to many witnesses, the man will crawl under desks and lay there taking a sniff of feet. One witness stated, ““That is extremely bizarre. I don’t understand why someone would want to do that.”

The FIU police reported that the foot fetish suspect was acting suspiciously back on Saturday, August 29th. They have multiple phots of the suspect and hope that these images will bring him closer to an arrest.

The suspect is around 200 pounds and stands about 6 feet tall. He is bald with short gray hair and has a goatee. The last vehicle he was see driving was a scooter.

There were no reported injuries in the incident. A violation of privacy is what concerns many students at the institution. Students say that this incident will not keep them from the library but more cautious about their surroundings and what might be under the desks.

In general, college is a suspicious place where all ages and different backgrounds all come under one institution and you never know what can happen.

This is not only a local problem in Florida but a nationwide issue that needs to transition into a social problem. A social problem that demonstrates how educational institutions are becoming more unsafe every day.

Take this incident in Florida and apply it to the needs of security.

Where was the security of the campus? How does this incident look to High School seniors who hope to enroll in college?

Every day there is a new issue associated with safety issues on campus. Issues include but are not limited to, sexual assault, domestic assault, suicide, breaches in security, and etc. There has to be a nationwide plan to make college campuses safer and it will take the students, alumni, and society in all to fix this timeless issue.
