______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Crenshanda Williams, 43, Houston, Texas 911 operator charged for hanging up on callers A 911 operator is accused of intentionally hanging up on callers during emergencies simply because she was not in the mood to help, according to Houston police. Crenshanda Williams has been charged with interference with an emergency telephone call, according to KIAH. Williams had been employed as a telecommunicator with the Houston Emergency Center since July 2014, and supervisors began to notice that her logs revealed an abnormally high amount of “short calls,” with a duration of less than 20 seconds. Supervisors investigated the recorded call logs, and found that thousands of calls had been disconnected by Williams between Oct. 2015 and March 2016. At least one of the calls was for a robbery and homicide, and two were regarding speeding vehicles, police said. Williams raised suspicion on March 12, specifically, when she allegedly hung up on several callers – the first call was ended immediately after she picked it up. During the second call, an operator — identified as Williams — is heard answering “Houston 911, do you need medical, police or fire?” When the male caller responded, “This is a robbery,” Williams is heard sighing before hanging up, according to court documents. Investigators tracked down the robbery/shooting caller, who confirmed someone hung up the phone the first time he called in, frustrating him, and he had to call back a second time. By the time police arrived, a person was dead. Investigators said that the following day, Williams hung up on several more people, including a security officer who was attempting to report a dangerous street racing incident. The operator, again identified as Williams, said “Houston 911, do you need medical, police or fire?” The caller only had time to say “This is officer Molten. I’m driving on 45 South right now and I am at ……” before Williams ended the call. Although the call was disconnected, the recording captured Williams saying, “Ain’t nobody got time for this. For Real.” The officer called in again, and a different 911 operator picked up and assisted him. Investigators reached out to the officer, who also confirmed the “hang up call” on that day, records show. Police say Williams admitted to disconnecting the calls because she “did not want to talk to anyone at that time.” Investigators said Williams’ actions prevented and interfered with the callers’ ability to request assistance during an emergency and charges were filed against her. Williams’ bond was set at $1,000. B L & M ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From Ada Re: Use data from other sheet on Excel work book Dear Webby, YES! Please tell us how to show data from sheet 2,3 4, etc on the top roundup sheet! Microsoft sure doesn't! Ada Dear Ada It is not really difficult at all, just a bit weird. In the late 80's Lotus sued Borland about allegedly copying their "Look and Feel", and later, when the big war between Microsoft and Borland started with almost monthly updates of even newer features, Microsoft used some rather weird ways to get the same thing done without doing it the same way. Linking in data from other sheets in a stack of woork sheets is easiest explained on an aexample. Make a stack of 3 or more worksheets and rename them by right clicking their tab and selecting RENAME to Jan, Feb, Mar, etc. Now imagine each sheet has your expenses and incomes, with a total on cell D 33 Go to cell D 33 on the MARch sheet, and enter a number. Hit Enter go back to that cell ALT I, N ENTER Type in a name, for example MARtotal ENTER Now that cell, where you have the totals for March, is named. Jump to the cover sheet, or JAN, or whatever you have named it, go to the spot where you need the March totals, type CTRL K Don't worry, it will get Microsofter yet! CTRL K lets you select a NAMED cell. That puts a rather useless link to that and it's name into the cell. Now, with the cursor on that cell, go up to the formula bar, and put an equal ign in front of the name, and *1 after it. That turns the name into a number, that you can use as a number to be summed together with others. Sometimes, it works even without the *1, however I continue using it. If the source number has a space in front or behind it due to sloppy copying, the *1 will produce an error message right there. That can save a lot of time troubleshooting at year end. Even though it is a weird way of going about it, it is well worth printing out this part or saving it. Sooner or later you will want to be able to use data, that is on different sheets. Have FUN! DearWebby I was at the drugstore and noticed a young male cashier staring at the pretty girl in front of me. Her total came to $16.42, and after handing over a $100 bill, she waited for change. "Here you go," said the cashier, smiling as he returned the proper amount. "Have a great day!" Now I placed my items on the counter. The tally was $62.79, and I too gave the cashier a $100 bill. "I'm sorry, Sir. We can't accept anything larger than a fifty," he told me, pointing to a sign stating store policy. "But you just accepted that last girl's hundred," I reasoned. "I had to," he said. "It had her phone number on it. Luckily the next check-out lane had a lady working there and after I wrote my phone number on it, she accepted the hundred dollar bill.

Daily tip from Removing Skunk Smell from House By Busy Family [1 Comment] My Morkie just got sprayed by a skunk because he would not leave the skunk alone. Thankfully when my Rottie was sprayed a few years back I found the solution of 1/2 quart hydrogen peroxide, 1/4 cup of baking soda, and 2 tablespoons liquid Dawn soap in an open container. Works wonders.

Here is a nice old classic to start the day: A tough old cowboy once counseled his grandson that if he wanted to live a long life, the secret was to sprinkle a pinch of gunpowder on his oatmeal every morning. The grandson did this religiously and lived to the age of 110. He left behind 4 children, 20 grandchildren, 30 great- grandchildren, 10 great-great grandchildren - and a fifty foot crater where the crematorium used to be.

____________________________________________________ A very zealous soul-winning young preacher recently came upon a farmer working in his field. Being concerned about the farmer's soul, the preacher asked the man, "Are you laboring in the vineyard of the Lord, my good man?" Not even looking at the preacher and continuing his work, the farmer replied, "Naw, these are soybeans." "You don't understand," said the preacher. "Are you a Christian?" With the same amount of interest as his previous answer, the farmer said, "Nope my name is Jones. You must be lookin' for Jim Christian. He lives a mile south of here." The young, determined preacher tried again, asking the farmer, "Are you lost?" "Naw! I've lived here all my life," answered the farmer. "Are you prepared for Armageddon?" the frustrated preacher asked. This caught the farmer's attention and he asked, "When's it gonna be?" Thinking he had accomplished something, the young preacher replied, "It could be today, tomorrow or the next day." Taking a handkerchief from his back pocket and wiping his brow, the farmer remarked, "Well, don't mention it to my wife. She don't get out much, and she'll wanna go all three days." ____________________________________________________ A fellow who’s just reached his 150th birthday was giving a press conference to the assembled media. "Excuse me, sir," one of the reporters said, "but how did you come to live to 150? "It’s actually quite simple," the old feller replied. "I just never argue." "That’s impossible," the reporter responded. "There must be something else, like diet, or meditation, or something. Just not arguing won’t keep you alive for 150 years! The old fellow stared hard at the reporter for several seconds. "Hmmm," he finally shrugged, "maybe you’re right." ____________________________________________________
