Mark Hicks The Detroit News Published 11:22 PM EST Jan 17, 2019 Long before tackling cases as an attorney or ruling from the bench, Maureen Pulte Reilly was committed to forging a fruitful path through the law. “She wanted to do things that were helpful to the larger society and make a contribution to her community,” said her daughter, Kathleen Reilly. Mrs. Reilly, a former Wayne County Circuit jurist and state appellate judge, died Monday, Jan. 7, 2019, at Tidewell Hospice in Venice, Florida, after a series of strokes, her family said. She was 84. Throughout her long legal career, the Michigan native left a mark. As an attorney with the city of Detroit’s Law Department, she helped draft a zoning ordinance restricting the location of adult movie theaters in the city — a measure Mrs. Reilly successfully defended before the United States Supreme Court in 1976, according to a resolution that state lawmakers approved upon her retirement in 1998. … [Read more...] about Former Wayne Co., appeals jurist Maureen Reilly ‘exuded class’
1. ROMA: Filmed in lustrous black and white, predominantly in unbroken shots, Mexican writer-director Alfonso Cuaron's Valentine to politically volatile 1970s Mexico city is a masterclass in emotionally wrought storytelling and technical virtuosity.Yalitza Aparicio lights up every gorgeously crafted frame as maid Cleo, who works long hours in the home of businessman Antonio (Fernando Grediaga) and his wife Sofia (Marina de Tavira).Cleo's relationship with her martial arts-obsessed boyfriend (Jorge Antonio Guerrero) warps when he abandons her shortly after she becomes pregnant.Cuaron's script skilfully draws parallels between fractured family units on opposite sides of the class divide, enriched with ravishing cinematography and immersive sound design.2.

December 31, 2018 by lesleymurphy Leave a Comment Tough and lacking emotional development towards the beginning, the year was just getting started. It’s hard to judge it on the premature nature it exuded so early on, but as days turned into months, roses were shed and development was had. I grew older and wiser and out of bad habits. New lands were explored and familiar places were rediscovered. I manifested a change in direction and became a teacher of yoga. I took my first group abroad to Bali. I spread awareness about breast cancer. I gave back to the world, to Mother Nature, which has given me so much in return. Here are my 18 highlights from 2018! Puerto Rico If you’ve been following me for a couple of years now, you know a big piece of my heart lives in Puerto Rico. My first trip of the year (just like 2017!) was here with The Points Guy for more hurricane Irma clean up! Winter Games Hmmmmmm. I suppose I can’t exactly skirt over that time I went back on … [Read more...] about Looking Back at 2018: A Year In Review
Visit The Boston Globe Share on Twitter Share on Facebook Comment on this Scroll to top of page By Dave Barry December 30, 2018 We can summarize 2018 in two words: It boofed. We’re not 100 percent sure what “boofing” is, despite the fact that this very issue was discussed in a hearing of the United States Senate Judiciary Committee. All we know for certain about boofing is that it is distasteful and stupid. As was 2018. In spades. What made this year so awful? We could list many factors, including natural disasters, man-made atrocities, the utter depravity of our national political discourse, and the loss of Aretha Franklin. Instead, we’ll cite one event that, while minor, epitomizes 2018: the debut of Dr. Pimple Popper. This is a cable-TV reality show featuring high-definition slo-mo close-up videos of a California dermatologist performing seriously disgusting procedures on individuals with zits the size of mature cantaloupes. You might ask, … [Read more...] about Dave Barry’s year in review: Good riddance to 2018!
