Paul Lloyd due for release from NORCOR Dec. 30

December 28, 2011

Paul Lawayne Loyd, 47, a transient who has been convicted of several local crimes and probation violations, is scheduled for release from NORCOR Dec. 30.

Beginning Nov. 3, Loyd, who traversed Hood River County by bicycle, was involved in several incidents of disorderly conduct toward individuals, trespassing, animal harassment and public intoxication.

As part of his sentencing, Loyd has been ordered to have no contact with anyone in Hood River County following his release and to leave the county immediately.

On two other releases, Loyd has failed to leave the county and was subsequently rearrested for probation violations.

Loyd's first Nov. 3 charges stemmed from two separate reported incidents occurring in the area of the DMV at the marina in which Loyd harassed and threatened an adult man and, later, a woman with children in her car.

Loyd rammed the woman's car with his bicycle during that incident. He then fled the scene. The Nov. 3 arrest followed reports of harassing horses and women in the area of Country Club Road.

During a Nov. 12 incident, Loyd damaged property, spit at people and returned to a local bar after being thrown out. His arrest followed additional incidents at a Country Club Road property where Loyd had been active during the Nov. 3 incident.

Loyd was arrested again on charges of probation violation on Nov. 23 within an hour after his release from NORCOR on a previous conviction.

Loyd is 5 feet 9 inches and 160 pounds, with brown short hair and some facial hair. He carries his possessions with him and has a silver bicycle.

Parkdale third graders sing "12 Disaster Days of Christmas"

Welcome to your sing-able Christmas gift list. What follows is an emergency rendition of “12 Days of Christmas” – for outfitting your home or car in case of snow storm, earthquake, flood or other emergency. Read it as a simple list, or sing it to the tune of “12 Days” – you know, as in “ … and a partridge in a pear tree…” Not to make light of it, but the song is a familiar framework for a set of gift ideas that you could consider gathering together, even if the recipient already owns items such as a bunch of coats, tire chains and flashlights. Stores throughout the Gorge are stocked up on all these items. Buying all 12 days might be prohibitive, but here are three ideas for checking any of the dozen off your list (notations follow, 1-12.) The gift items needed to stay warm, dry and safe are also coded to suggest items in your abode (A) in your car (C) or both (B). 12 Gallons of Water (A) 11 Family meals (B) 10 Cans of propane (A) 9 Hygiene bags (B) 8 Packs of batteries (A) 7 Spare coats (B) 6 Bright red flares (C) 5 Cozy blankets (B) 4 Tire chains (C) 3 Flashlights (B) 2 cell phone chargers (B) 1 And a crush-proof first aid kit (B) Price ranges? Here’s a few quotes for days Three, Two, Four and Nine: n A family gift of flashlights (three will run $15-30, Hood River Supply, Tum-A-Lum) n Cell phone chargers (two will run $30-60) n Tire chains (basic set, $30, Les Schwab, returnable if unused for the winter) n Family meals ($100 or so should cover the basics for three or four reasonably well-fed days) n The home kit should be kept in a handy place near an exit, and remember that water needs to be replenished every few months. If you have a solid first aid kit already, switch out the gift idea with “and-a-sto-o-u-t- tub-for it-all …” Otherwise, it’s a case of assembling your home or car kits and making sure all members of the family know what the resources are and how to use them (ie flares and propane). Emergency situations are at worst life-threatening, at best deeply uncomfortable if you and your family are left without power for an extended period, or traveling and find yourself in a situation where you need to wait out a storm, lengthy traffic delay, or other crisis. Notes on the 12 gift ideas: 12 – Gallons of water: that’s one per person in a four-member family to last for three days, the recommended minimum to be prepared for utility outages. 11 – Easy-open packaged goods, energy bars, dried food and nuts are good things to include for nutrition. Think of what your family of four needs for three days to stay fortified and hydrated (see number 12). Can-opener also recommended 10 – If you have a propane camping stove, keep extra fuel handy. 9 – Hygiene bags: put packaged moistened towelettes, toilet paper, and plastic ties in large garbage bags (for personal sanitation) Resource list courtesy of Hood River County Emergency Management, Barbara Ayers, manager/ 541-386-1213.
