Suit to stop sale of Marilyn Monroe memorabilia close to resolution

first_imgA company formed by Marilyn Monroe’s heirs to oversee the property assets of the Hollywood icon reached a preliminary agreement with a man to stop his sale of Monroe memorabilia, court papers obtained today show. Marilyn Monroe LLC filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court against Millington Conroy on Oct. 25, the same day Judge David P. Yaffe issued a court order stopping Conroy from selling fur coats, purses, perfume bottles and even financial statements that once belonged to the actress. Laura A. Wytsma, an attorney for company, filed additional court papers Nov. 13 stating both sides were nearing a final resolution of the case and that the restraining order would remain in effect until then. According to the suit, Conroy obtained the items from his mother, Ruth Conroy. Ruth Conroy was the sister-in-law of Inez Melson, who was once Monroe’s personal assistant. Melson was the special administrator of Monroe’s estate for a year after the actress’ death in August 1962, the suit states. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Dude can carry a grudge.It’s been more than eight months since Fergie’s squealing, overwrought, comically dramatic rendition of the national anthem at the 2018 NBA All-Star game.

Water quality workshop

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Ohio has been fortunate that weather patterns this summer have been moderate and the Harmful Algae Bloom (HAB) levels have not reached the levels of the past two years. Extremely high temperatures combined with heavy storm events can quickly cause HABs to return. Shallow lakes, such as Grand Lake St. Mary’s and the western basin of Lake Erie are particularly vulnerable to HABs due to the ability of sunlight to reach the floor of the water body and accelerate the growth of algae. And phosphorous levels in the soils, whether it be from farm fields, golf courses, failing home sewage systems, or lawns and landscaping will always be potential contributors to this problem. Rainfall runoff from our land picks up any available phosphorous and empties it into our lakes and streams. Phosphorous is a fertilizer which contributes to the growth of algae. To learn more about water quality and algae blooms in particular, plan to attend a workshop addressing these topics on Tuesday, Aug. 2 at 7:00 pm at the Orange Township Hall, 1680 E. Orange Rd., Lewis Center. OSU Extension Biologist Eugene Braig will be the featured speaker who will address HABs and answer questions. Most importantly, we can all learn about how we can work together to reduce the phosphorous runoff causing algae blooms. The workshop is free; however please register with the Delaware SWCD by calling the office at 740-368-1921 or email [email protected] Reservations are due by July 29, 2016.last_img read more
