Today’s toddlers spend 11 hours or more in daycare
Stuff co.nz 10 May 2015It is dark when Sarah Topsom wakes her children and it is dark when they get home.On a good day the alarm sounds at 5.15am, on a bad day it is 4.30am.Their daughters are dressed and bundled into the car. It can be up to two-hours in peak hour traffic to travel from Army Bay, north of Auckland, into the city centre.Once they arrive at work the children can be in daycare from seven to 11 hours before the journey home.On a busy day, Topsom is the first to drop the children off and last one to pick them up.“Sometimes you feel terrible because you run through the door with a minute to spare,” she said “But I’m not the only who thinks they’ll be the last one to pick up the kids.”This isn’t an unusual story.http://www.stuff.co.nz/life-style/parenting/68415296/todays-toddlers-spend-11-hours-or-more-in-daycare.html
Hearing set for Thursday on last week’s car 2-county chase and collision pursuit
By Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow â€” A hearing has been set for Thursday at 9 a.m. at Sumner County District Court for four Sedgwick County Latino men each charged with at least seven felonies in relationship to a two-county car chase and collision pursuit which occurred Wednesday, Feb. 6.The four men â€” Juan Castillo-Lopez, 18, Wichita; Domingo Olivas-Castillo, 41, Haysville; Albertico Castillo-Olivas, 24, Wichita; and Victor Lopez-Gomez, 28, Wichita â€” are each facing two counts of kidnapping; two counts of aggravated assault; conspiracy to commit aggravated assault; criminal damage to property; and aggravated endangering a child – all felonies.Â Sumner County Attorney Kerwin Spencer filed the complaints this week stemming from a four-car incident that started after an alleged altercation in Sedgwick County, which ended peacefully in Wellington at 2:46 p.m. in the Orsheln’s Store parking lot in west Wellington at 1203 W. Eighth.Spencer said the chase started over a debt collection dispute that involved Curtis Everhart, who lives in Sumner County. Spencer did not specify what the dispute was over, but he said an ensuing chase occurred in which Everhart, driving a black Lincoln LS, was being pursued by three vehicles that involved the four suspects. Everhart had a friend, Destiny Lovan, and a 1-year-old girl in the car with him.According to the complaint, Everhart’s vehicle was being boxed in by three vehicles: Domingo Olivas-Castillo, who was driving a F150 pickup; Victor Lopez-Gomez, who was driving a Lincoln; and Albertico Castillo-Olivas, who was driving a F-350 truck. Allegedly, Albertico hit Everhart’s Lincoln back windshield with either a pole or tire iron. Another alleged conspirator was involved with the breaking out window attempt.Domingo Olivas-Castillo allegedly crashed his car into Everhart’s car during the pursuit that went from Sedgwick County to Wellington to Mayfield and back to Wellington. All acted under the direction of Juan Castillo-Lopez the complaint said. No one was injured in the incident.Spencer said this will be a first appearance hearing to determine if the men need representation. He anticipated that two of the men will not need court-appointed attorneys because of their apparent financial status, Spencer said.Suspects arrested shortly after the two-county pursuit by Sumner County Sheriff deputies.
