6] – A
friend, Brendan Walls, was to move out of a rented home on March 1. So he
is still looking for housing and wants to live south of the Baltimore beltway,
east of US 95 and north of Route 214. Do you know of a house or apartment
in the Annapolis area with as much peace and quiet as I can get for no more
than $1800 a month? He does not mind pet sitting, house sitting, keeping
someone company or community living. Let me know if you have a lead on a
home or apartment for Brendan to rent. Thanks for giving this your
consideration. Reach Max at 410-323-1607 or mobuszewski 2001 at Comcast dot
7] – Here is the Go Fund Me link through which you can
help Adel Al Manthari get the medical attention that he desperately needs: https://gofund.me/1a5fac07. Please contribute as soon as possible because he will not be able to
get treatment until $10,000 is raised.BanKillerDrones.org is
raising funds to help him. WESPAC Foundation is the fiscal agent
for BanKillerDrones.org. In March 2018 Adel Al Manthari was grievously injured in a U.S.
drone attack in Yemen that killed four of his cousins. The five men were
driving to the village of al-Aqla to witness a land transfer. They never made
it. Tens of thousands have been killed and maimed by U.S. drone attacks.
Adel survived, but now his health is in jeopardy because he can’t afford
the medical care he needs.
Library workers are forming a union, Pratt Workers United. We are seeking pay
equity for all, safer working conditions, benefits for part-time workers, and a
voice in decisions that affect our work.”
