______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Jaclyn Lindsay McLaren, also known as Jaclyn (Jackie) Jones, 36, Stirling, Ontario Ontario teacher freed on bail, faces 36 sex charges involving minors. A local elementary school teacher has been released from custody after being charged with 36 counts of sex crimes involving four minors. Jaclyn Lindsay McLaren, who is also known as Jaclyn (Jackie) Jones, 36, of Stirling, is free on a $100,000 bond. She appeared in a bail hearing Friday in Belleville court. Ontario Provincial Police confirmed the woman is employed as a teacher with the Belleville-based Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board. A ban on publication has been ordered to protect the identities of the complainants, four boys who were believed to have been students at the time of the alleged incidents. None of the allegations have been proven in court, nor, said the defence lawyer for the accused, has full disclosure of all information in the Crown's case been made to the accused and her lawyer. Ontario Provincial Police investigator Sgt. Peter Leon said the charges now involve four young people ages 12 to 15 and date from 2013 to 2016. Investigators say the incidents occurred in Tweed. Sources say it is believed the alleged incidents occurred when McLaren/Jones was a French teacher in Tweed. Sources also said she had been transferred out of that school in recent months, however. McLaren/Jones is charged with eight counts of sexual exploitation, six counts of luring a person younger than 16 and six counts of making sexually explicit material available to a person under 16. McLaren/Jones is charged with three counts of making child pornography and one count of making sexually explicit material available to children. She’s also charged with with four counts each of sexual assault on a person younger than 16, sexual interference with a person younger than 16 and making an invitation to sexual touching involving a person younger than 16. Police began investigating McLaren/Jones on Sunday Feb. 14. On Monday, Feb 15, they charged the teacher and she was held in custody until her release Friday in Belleville court. It is reported McLaren/Jones has been removed from her teaching position, but it is unclear if she is on paid leave while the matters are before the court. Represented by Belleville defence lawyer Pieter Kort, McLaren/Jones was released from custody into the care of her parents by Justice of the Peace Sam Cureatz. Cureatz ordered her not to have any contact with the four minors involved as complainants in the case or with any boy younger than 18. She must avoid public places where minors may gather and has been ordered not to possess a cell phone. Computers in her parents’ home were to be removed and McLaren/Jones is also banned from possessing weapons. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Helen B. Re: Possibly legit telemarketers Dear Webby A while ago you had some great advice about dealing with telemarketers. That works just fine and is a lot of fun with regular telemarketers. However, we also get calls from sales people from companies that we DO regularly buy supplies from. Naturally, if their salesmen call during busy times and try to practise their sales pitch on my receptionist, she follows your advice and either sends them to the rejection line or asks them if they like goats. She is a very sweet and otherwise very proper lady in her mid sixties and I almost wet my pants the first time I heard her do that. The problem is that some of our suppliers don't have a sense of humor and get into a snit about it. What solution have you got for salesmen of potentially legitimate suppliers who simply call at a too busy time? Thanks Helen B Dear Helen Your receptionist can simply tell them to send you an email. The flakey telemarketers don't have email, and the others you can weed out a lot faster than phone answering machine messages. Have FUN!

Making this cinnamon apple takes only a few ingredients, but technically, you could just use just apples for a super healthy plain one. Approximate Time: 3 hours Yield: 4 fruit roll ups Ingredients: 2 medium apples (I used 1 Gala and 1 Red Delicious) 1/4 cup water 1 Tbsp sugar 1 tsp cinnamon Steps: Preheat oven to 175 F. Peel and chop apples. Place them in a pot with water and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook for 10 minutes until they're soft. Cinnamon Apple Fruit Roll-Ups Add sugar and cinnamon. Give it a mashing, and cook another couple minutes. Cinnamon Apple Fruit Roll-Ups Place this mixture into a blender and process until smooth. Pour onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper (or a Silpat). Spread into a nice, even thin layer. Bake for 2 to 3 hours. It's ready when you touch it and it doesn't stick to your fingers. Let cool and cut into strips. They will easily peel off the parchment paper. I don't peel apples, ever! That's where the healthy stuff is. I just core them and then use a blender to purree the stuff. Because I am a diabetic, I don't use sugar. A very ripe pear sweetens it quite nicely. Once in a while, to get an interesting change, I toss in Anis seed or ground cloves. And I skip the water, since it just gets boiled away anyway. With a good blender, that has a "purree" setting,there is no need for water. Have FUN!
