“The Living Matrix”

movie:

directed and produced by

Harry Massey and Greg Becker

as informational medicine becomes more prevalent and mainstream, this movie talks about how different energy systems and information medicine are used in healing.

There are many other important definitions and studies presented in this movie. The definitions of “Energy Cardiology”, “The Placebo Affect”, “Meridian Lines” and more all point to a new way of looking at healing, in addition to the importance of conventional medicine.

From some of the world’s top geneticists and scientists, this film was masterfully crafted to hold interest, evoke emotion and educate viewers.

In the words of  scientist: Peter Fraser, featured in the movie:

“Healing is learning to correct the human body field so that it works according to the original blueprint”

The movie will be shown during the regular

Cop to Speak on Drug Prohibition Wed August 1st in Davenport PDF Print E-mail

Cops Say Legalize Drugs. One Tells Why.

Tony Ryan, a member of the board of directors of LEAP – Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (www.LEAP.cc), will speak on the effects of Drug Prohibition, at a 7:00 p.m., Wednesday August 1 forum at Central Perk Coffee House located at 226 West Third Street in downtown Davenport, Iowa.

LEAP is a 10-year-old organization, with 50,000 members, ranging from current and former law-enforcement officers to prosecutors to judges. Ryan served 36 years in Denver, Colorado’s police department before retiring as a lieutenant, in 2003.

Ryan was interviewed for a story in the Davenport based River Cities' Reader newspaper published on July 19, 2012. The full story is available online at: http://www.rcreader.com/news/cops-say-legalize-drugs-tony-ryan/

The article asserts that the price of the drug war has been undeniably high.  From a law-enforcement perspective, Ryan states police also pay a price beyond the actual costs of drug-enforcement programs. Narcotics officers have low morale, he stated in the interview. And “in law enforcement in general, the greatest source of complaints ... has to do with narcotics enforcement.” Further, the effort has failed in two key areas: supply and demand. Illegal-drug use now is at roughly the same level as it was 20 years ago, while prices have dropped for nearly all illegal drugs except marijuana, Ryan noted to the Reader.

The forum organizer, Mark Nelson, is hopeful to confirm the attendance and participation of area prosecutors, drug-court officials and potentially judges from Iowa's seventh judicial district.

The forum will begin at 7pm on Wednesday, August 1st at the Central Perk Coffee House in downtown Davenport and is free and open to the public.

Shootout Against Cancer 2012 - News Release PDF Print E-mail
News Releases - Local Events
Written by Don Stohr   
Thursday, 26 July 2012 15:46

OELWEIN, Iowa – Shooting sports enthusiasts from across the upper Midwest will enjoy a fun day of sporting clays competition on Sunday, Aug. 12 while raising thousands of dollars for the fight against cance.

Fayette County Conservation Club will host the fifth annual Shootout Against Cancer on Aug. 12, featuring a 100-target sporting clays course, lunch on the grounds, special shooting games, raffles and prizes -- all to fund cancer research supported by the University of Iowa Foundation.

All the day's events will be held on the club's grounds at Oelwein. Cost for the sporting clays course and lunch is $50.

The sporting clays shoot begins at 9 a.m., is open to all, and is designed for all levels of shooters from novices to veterans.

All participants will register on the club grounds the day of the shoot. Event organizers encourage shooters to register in three-person teams. Individual shooters can also register and be assigned to a team.

All teams must be registered, entered, and on the course by 1 p.m.

The Fayette County Conservation Club extends a special invitation to anyone interested in learning about and taking part in the game of sporting clays.

The Fayette club grounds are on the west edge of Oelwein off County Highway C50 (West Charles Street).  Signs will be posted with directions to the grounds and parking areas.

The annual Shootout against Cancer has raised thousands of dollars for cancer research. The 2011 Shootout drew 144 shooters and raised $7,810 for University of Iowa Foundation cancer research funding.

The 100-target sporting clays course will be designed and set up by sporting clays range designers Targets On The Move. The course will offer a variety of targets and will be fun for both veteran and novice shooters said Hugh Curtis, Fayette County Conservation Club member and organizer of the annual Shootout Against Cancer.

Raffle tickets for a Beretta A400 Xcel 12 gauge semi-automatic sporting clays target shotgun will also be available on the grounds for $10 each or three for $20.

“The Shootout Against Cancer is a fun event for shooters of all ages and ability levels,” said Don Stohr, club member and Shootout organizer. “In addition to raising funds for the fight against cancer, this is also an opportunity to get more people involved in the shooting sports."

For more information, contact Stohr, telephone 319-283-0217.
