Quotes

The ACLU letter, written by staff attorney Candice Sirmon, said "John Doe's religious faith is Rastafari, and wearing his hair in dreadlocks and not cutting his hair is central to his religious beliefs."
There is no cost to attend Cinema Paradise. "This event is free of cost, so it is open to one and all. I know that because of economic constraints, film festivals would usually charge a fee. But because of the generosity of our sponsor, we wanted to make it free for the people of Portland so that they can come and enjoy what we have in store" Less told The Gleaner
"The police notified his son and initially see his death as by natural causes (speculative heart attack). This so far has been the conclusion, as he was well dressed and all his personal effects were returned that was on his person" the post read in part
Backing up these statements, United Auctions auctioneer, George Purves said: "This sale just gets busier and busier every year. We had more sheep and buyers with a lot more from the south compared to previous years. Sheep were well bid for throughout with the top commercial men looking to breed Suffolk cross ewe lambs willing to go to £1500 and £2000 for rams" added Mr Purves
