Miss Nevada, who is also a combat veteran, has been stripped of her crown and sash for refusing to remove her pro-Trump social media posts.29-year-old Katie Jo Williams of Las Vegas is accusing the Miss America pageant of dropping her over her support for President Trump.She says she is tired of being labeled a “crazy, right-wing” nut job because she wears a MAGA hat in one post.In a Facebook video, Williams said she was officially disqualified from this year’s pageant after being told she was too political on social media.The organization says their decision has nothing to do with the president, they just don’t allow contestants to make their political beliefs known on pageant-related accounts or engagements.According to their website, the Miss America contest is a “no politics pageant.”The Miss America pageant will be held this Saturday and will air Sunday, Sept. 9, on the ABC Television Network without Williams.The jilted contestant, Katie Williams, will join Jen and Bill live Thursday morning at 8:35 to talk about the Miss America pageant drama.

Everywhere he’s gone, he is having a lot of success. I’ve learned a lot from him and now it will be interesting to go up against him,” he said.Asked if he sees it as a huge edge for Ginebra given his familiarity on Black’s system, Slaughter just said: “We’ll see when it comes to play. But if he forced me baseline and double from the baseline then I see that things haven’t changed much.”But more than anything, Slaughter is motivated by this chance to be a major contributor for what could be his first title.“I’m just really excited, but we got to stay on an even keel. Hopefully, we’ll get this first game. Hopefully, we can repeat it this year because we want it so bad,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT Frontrow holds fun run to raise funds for young cancer patients Fire hits houses in Mandaluyong City LATEST STORIES Nonong Araneta re-elected as PFF president LOOK: Loisa Andalio, Ronnie Alonte unwind in Amanpulo for 3rd anniversary Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice PLAY LIST 01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice00:59Old rivals Fajardo, Slaughter finally face off in the PBA Finals02:11CJ Peralta assures fair decision on Marcos poll protest vs Robredo01:37Protesters burn down Iran consulate in Najaf01:47Panelo casts doubts on Robredo’s drug war ‘discoveries’01:29Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games Greg Slaughter in his first game back since suffering an ACL injury 10 months ago.

Absolutely not.”Tettey added: “I love Rosenborg, they mean a lot to me, but I don’t want to go to Rosenborg as a 34-year-old who everyone just wants to remember how he was before. It gives me nothing, it gives the club nothing, it gives the fans nothing.”
The Minister said a hydroponics system at the Spanish Town District Prison, which was donated by the College of Agriculture, Science and Education (CASE), is being manned by prisoners who have now used the technology to grow vegetables feed themselves and their fellow inmates. Minister of National Security, Hon. Robert Montague, says the Government is committed to the rehabilitation and redemption of incarcerated persons in adult penal institutions. Minister of National Security, Hon. Robert Montague, says the Government is committed to the rehabilitation and redemption of incarcerated persons in adult penal institutions.Addressing a town hall meeting at the Everglades Centre in Parrottee, near Black River in St. Elizabeth, on November 9, the Minister said the Government is gravely concerned that many inmates, upon release, find themselves back behind bars not very long after.Mr. Montague pointed out that in order to address the challenges, the Government has beefed up rehabilitation initiatives in the seven adult prisons, introducing skills training such as furniture-making; food processing programmes, in collaboration with the HEART Trust/NTA, as well as literacy classes for those who are unable to read.He said the literacy levels of all new inmates are now assessed and even the game of chess has also been introduced in the prisons with the hope of enabling inmates to be better thinkers.“The rate of return in our prisons is over 40 per cent. In other words, 40 per cent of the persons in our prisons were there before,” the Minister noted.“We have to equip the prisoner with the skills to survive so he does not come back,” Mr. Montague said.The Minister said a hydroponics system at the Spanish Town District Prison, which was donated by the College of Agriculture, Science and Education (CASE), is being manned by prisoners who have now used the technology to grow vegetables feed themselves and their fellow inmates.He explained under his regime, the approximately 3,500 prisoners on the island will have to undertake some of the responsibility to feed and care for themselves, instead of tax-payers being made to shoulder all the associated costs attached to their welfare.“I have insisted as Minister, that the prisoners must produce at least one meal per week for themselves. And today, they are now at two meals per week. The tax-payers of Jamaica must get a break,” Mr. Montague declared.With respect to the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF), the Minister said the Government is “investing heavily into the training of police officers,” as the organisation is operating way below strength, due to retirement and resignations outpacing the recruitment of new trainees to fill vacancies.“The Jamaica Constabulary Force is operating at 70 per cent of its strength. The police lose an average of 500 police officers per year for the last four years,” Mr. Montague said.“When you count all the training, we are only training 550 per year. And the Government has taken a very aggressive line, because this Minister believes that we must bring the Police Force up to 14,435, which is the establishment strength,” he added.The Minister said the current strategy to increase the number of officers is in its early stages of execution, and will see 2,000 recruits being trained per year over the next three years at Harman Barracks in Kingston, Twickenham Park in St. Catherine and at the Mona Campus of the University of the West Indies.
