Howell Lacy - Obituary - Legacy.com
Chesapeake, Virginia. Kent, or "Lacy" to his friends, is survived by his daughter, Cris L. Lacy and his sisters Ruth L. Smith and Kay L. Brinkley.Born in Georgia, Kent grew up in Farmville, Virginia to parents Howell E. Lacy and Nina C. Lacy - both of whom preceded him in death. From an early age, he had an innate acumen and curiosity for all things mechanical. These attributes were put to good useâ€¦first on Model A and Model T Fords, and later on his "first class" restorations of Austin Healeys. In the years between, Kent's driveway and garage were always occupied by something unique and unusual. Aided by his background in art and architecture during his tenure at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and Old Dominion University, he turned all of his cars into works of art. Influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright, Kent always favored "sleek, clean lines" over "things that look like they were made with a hatchet". In the 1970's, during Kent's stint at Everett-Waddy as a draftsman, one of his bigger projects was the interior design of the Norfolk International Airport. "Lacy" was a true Renaissance man. In addition to his grasp of art, architecture, and automotive, he was a pilot in t... Jan 26, 2018
Local resident helps to create Rose Parade float
I’ve never done anything like that, and it sounded interesting and fun. My daughter Angela Brinkley was home for a visit at Christmas with her family; and she said she’d go with me,” Bull said. “So I replied and told them we would come.”Brinkley teaches school in Louisiana and had a Christmas break, so they were visiting in Kerrville.The two of them packed suitcases and left Bill at home with their son, two 16-year-olds and a 12-year-old.Bull said they arrived in Pasadena the Wednesday after Christmas to find all the hotels booked full beginning Saturday, Dec. 30, when people with parade tickets were going to arrive. But they found a hotel room for the three nights before that.The next day they took a hotel shuttle to the “Rose Pavilion,” giant warehouses where the floats were being constructed.“Where are your parade tickets?” they were asked; and they had to say they didn’t have any. They were only going to be there three days, to work.They asked directions to the specific warehouse for the UPS float, and, at the booth outside the doors, got red t-shirts with their first names on the back, so the directors could yell instructions at the approximately 120 volunteers.The shirts were printed on the front with a graphic of the head of the sea monster float, nicknamed Bessie by the creators.‘Books Bring Dreams to Life’Watching the Rose Parade on television is one thing. That doesn’t convey the size of the float designs like being there to help glue on the flowers, Bull said.Here’s how the finished float, encouraging literacy, was described by UPS and the parade broadcasters.The main feature was a sea monster that appeared to swim down the parade route, su...

Hunting The Clintons: The True Story Behind Gennifer Flowers' $500K Payday
Flowers, a 40 year-old cabaret singer originally from rural Brinkley, Arkansas, population 4,000 (which also happened to be the hometown of Sheffield Nelson, one of two Republican candidates hoping to run against Clinton that year; the other was Rep. Tommy Robinson, a former sheriff).
Flowers turned out to be the only one of the five whom Nichols knew personally. They had recorded advertising jingles together and still used the same booking agent. And there was one more interesting coincidence: In early October, about two weeks before Nichols’s press conference, Gennifer Flowers had called the governor’s office seeking help in finding a state job.
Though Nichols had filed his lawsuit without benefit of counsel, reporters soon learned that he had met several times with the Republican state chairman, lawyer Bob Leslie, a confidant of Sheffield Nelson. Leslie said he and Nichols merely had lunch together and had never talked about the lawsuit. Nichols later told the Washington Post that Leslie had advised him about the legality of making the women’s depositions public.
Reprints of the Nichols complaint were readily available at Nelson’s campaign headquarters. Faxed copies began appearing at out-of-town newspapers and radio stations all over Arkansas, but received almost no attention. After a right-wing talk show host at a small Little Rock station allowed a caller to read Nichols’s list over the air, the station’s owner received a brisk letter from one of the women’s lawyers threatening a libel action. The incident was never repeated.
Headed for a quick dismissal in state court due to lack of evidence, the lawsuit was quickly forgotten in the wake of Clinton’s reelection.
Two days before Election Day, Nichols tipped his hand. At a meeting in a diner with Clinton press secretary Mike Gauldin, he offered to settle his lawsuit if the governor would arrange to pay off the mortgage on his house, and give him an additional $150,000. Gauldin brushed him off.
In December 1990, a supposedly distraught Flowers made the first of what would become a world-famous series of four telephone calls to Bill Clinton himself. She told the governor that the Nichols allegations were hurting her ability to get nightclub gigs, and that she was concerned about Republican efforts to smear Clinton. Unaware that she was taping him, he spoke freely. “I think [Nichols’s] suit will be dismissed now,” Clinton told her. “So I don’t think you need to worry about [being subpoenaed].”

30 Questions in 30 Days: Most picks in 2016?
DAN SALOMONE: I think it could be a race down to the wire between middle linebacker Jasper Brinkley and safety Landon Collins, last year’s team leader in this category. In his nine games as a starter in 2014, Brinkley notched 65, which would come out to around 116 if he started all 16. Meanwhile, Collins had 112 as the first rookie safety in Giants history to start an entire 16-game schedule. With that said, I’ll go ahead and give the edge to Collins, who could be in line for a big Year 2.>> VIEW GIANTS TRAINING CAMP SCHEDULELANCE MEDOW: In three of the last five seasons, a safety has led the team in tackles, and I think that position will continue to set the tone in 2016 with Landon Collins staying atop the leaderboard. Last season, Collins had 112 tackles (84 solo, 28 assisted) in 16 games as a rookie. With more comfort in Steve Spagnuolo’s defense and, potentially, this year’s third round pick Darian Thompson lining up next to him as a centerfielder, Collins will be in position to make plenty of plays this season.Question 16. Which 1-on-1 matchup are you looking forward to seeing at training camp?JOHN SCHMEELK: This one is easy for me: Ereck Flowers vs. Olivier Vernon. I watched Odell Beckham Jr. take on Janoris Jenkins in the spring, but now I want to see the big guys go at it. My favorite part of training camp is watching the one-on-one O-Line/D-Line drills. Flowers is coming into his second season and is healthy after playing on a badly sprained ankle as a rookie. Vernon is a premier pass rusher. It will be a great test to see if Flowers is ready to take a big jump from his first year to his second.DAN SALOMONE: Weston Richburg vs. Damon Harrison all day long. The best part of training camp is the first day of pads, and those two will be the center of my attention. That’s 648 pounds of action right there. We saw them go at it last year as opponents in the Giants vs. Jets game, but now they’ll be fortifying their respective lines as teammates. An underlying storyline is both are on the verge of breakout seasons that could lead to individual honors down the road.>> VIEW GIANTS UNIFORM SCHEDULELANCE MEDOW: During training camp, my focus will be on the trenches where there will be plenty of battles between the offensive line and the new-look defensive line. The one matchup to watch is defensive end Olivier Vernon against left tackle Ereck Flowers, which will be a preview of what to expect in practice all season long. It will be a great test for Flowers, who is entering his second year in the league and looking to solidify the left side of the offensive line.Question 17. Who is the most improved team on the Giants’ schedule?JOHN SCHMEELK: This is a really tough question. I’ll have to go with the Dallas Cowboys. They were not themselves last year due to injuries to their two best offensive players, Tony Romo and Dez Bryant, and their best cover cornerback, Orlando Scandrick. If those three players come back healthy, along with the addition of Ezekiel Elliott, the Cowboys should be closer to their 12-4 record two years ago than their 4-12 season last year. The Baltimore Ravens getting healthy in the same way, including the return of Joe Flacco, puts them in this conversation as well.DAN SALOMONE: The past two seasons haven’t been great for the Saints, but don’t sleep on a team that is used to double-digit win totals. Drew Brees is still Drew Brees and led the NFL in passing yards last season. But the main concern has been the defense, which finished last in scoring and ... (Giants.com (blog))Apr 22, 2016
Christine Huddleston, founder of Room in the Inn, dies at 83
She and her late husband, Clyde, started the program in 1985. "She was a very accomplished lady," said Room in the Inn assistant director Georgene Brinkley. She considered Huddleston a mentor and a friend -- a friend who didn't sugarcoat the truth. She said Huddleston's most famous aphorism was, "You have to be compassionate, but call a spade a spade."
"Christine was just a jewel," said Jane Sharp. "She just did a marvelous job." Before starting Greenhouse Ministries she and her husband Cliff were active with Room in the Inn, during its early years. "Now, she was a tough mama," said Sharp, "but she was passionate."
Many who stayed at the shelter went on to complete their educations, and when they did, "she went to every single graduation," said Brinkley.
A minor traffic accident in December 2013 triggered a stroke, leaving her wheelchair-bound, and Huddleston retired from her post as director a year later, Jan. 1, 2015.
In addition to her role with Room in the Inn, Huddleston also worked in local government.
"I first knew of Christine when she became the first woman to be elected to the Rutherford County Commission," Steve Cates told WGNS this week.
She had co-owned Murfreesboro Flower Shop with her son C.B., which opened in 1981. "She was involved pretty heavily, I'll tell you that," said Da... (Murfreesboro Post)Sep 11, 2015
An Oxford Floral Company Designer's Dream Wedding
I’m the only one with a living grandparent. So, having that in my bouquet all day made it special.”
How did you pick “the dress?”“I went to Lows in Brinkley, Arkansas with my sister, mom, step mom and friend, Jessica. I had tried on about 20 dresses and found one that was in my “budget and fit.” My sister, manager of a bridal store, hated it! She decided she wanted to go pick out my dress herself. Twenty minutes later she returned with two sales associates, an arm full of dresses, and a full size mannequin off of the display with a dress on it. Eventually, I got around to trying on the mannequin dress and instantly fell in love. On one hand, it was way over my budget, on the other hand, I had to have it, it was… “the dress.” I began thinking of payment plans and telling my step-mother, “hold on- let me call the bank and see what I can pay now and how I can work this out.” As if the bank would give me a loan for the dress of my dreams. Thats when my step-mother looked at the sales associate and said the three golden words, “we’ll take it.” Needless to say, we did not take out a dress loan, I left that day with the dress paid for and it arrived six weeks later.”
How did the two of you meet?“We knew each other in High School but we weren’t friends. When I moved home from the University of Alabama I went to work at a flower shop Clark was working at. We we’re friends at first and started dating about 3 months after I started working there.
What is your proposal story?“We went to Nashville for the Ole Miss bowl game and stayed for New Year’s Eve downtown. It was cold and miserable and I wanted to leave, but Clark insisted on staying for the fireworks. When midnight rolled around, I felt someone tap my shoulder and that’s when Clark asked me to marry him and I said yes!”
What inspired your color scheme/theme/flowers?“Being a floral designer I see weddings and flowers of all types. My biggest thing was wanting everything different. I wanted a different venue, different dress, different flower concepts. I always knew where I wanted my wedding and reception.”
What were you looking forward to the most about the wedding and married life?“The one think I looked forward to at my wedding was seeing Clark for the first time. We wa... (HottyToddy.com)
