Dog The Bounty Hunter gets 2nd chance: A&E
Last Updated: Wednesday, February 20, 2008 | 2:04 PM ET
Bounty hunter Duane (Dog) Chapman will be returning to his reality television series, three months after a racial slur caused cable channel A&E to suspend it.
A&E revealed late Tuesday that production on Dog The Bounty Hunter will start up again but a broadcast date has not been set.
Duane (Dog) Chapman, seen here in Honolulu, Hawaii last year, had his reality TV series pulled because of a phone conversation in which he used a racial slur against his son's girlfriend.

"Over the last few months, Duane (Dog) Chapman has taken and continues to take the appropriate steps in reaching out to several African-American organizations in an effort to make amends for his private comments to his son which were released publicly," said a statement from the network.
"Since the premise of Dog The Bounty Hunter is about second chances — we have decided to give him one."
The show was taken off air last November after a private phone call between Chapman and his son Tucker was released in which the bounty hunter used the N-word to describe Tucker's girlfriend.
Chapman apologized several times publicly and to the African-American community, promising to make amends.
It was also discovered later that Tucker had sold a tape of the conversation to The National Enquirer.
The 55-year-old Chapman, based in Honolulu, Hawaii, is an ex-con himself.
He rose to fame in 2003 after capturing Max Factor heir and serial rapist Andrew Luster in Mexico, leading to his TV series.
The show follows Chapman, his wife Beth and their little posse of bounty hunters as they track down bail jumpers.
The show is seen in more than 10 countries.
This guy is slow. I wrote this blog over one month ago!!!
DUHHHHHHHH!!!!!! Yes, the cranes were from the Shipyard. Not the LNG Plant!!!
DUUUHHHHHHH!!!!! You don't think that the Irvings would allow a blogger inside their plant after an accident do you???
Here's the individual comment -
FYI... You must wear fall arrest equipment if you work more than 6 feet from the ground. You cannot be fired on the spot for not wearing the proper PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). There are steps to be followed before and employer can fire and employee.
Like any other work related accidents or incidents, an investigation must be conducted before any information is released...especially
when the accident involves a death.
Also, Charles there have been no cranes that have toppled over at the LNG site. The pics you have are from the old drydock when they imploded the old cranes. The incident with a crane was on the KWS site where a pile was dropped in the water.
So before anyone runs there mouth about the Irving's covering up accidents, get your facts straight before you post this non sense!!
You only make your self look like and sound like and ASS!!
Good hearted citizens getting ready to help feed the less fortunate at the Fredericton Soup Kitchen!!!
Yes...We wish to promote our tickets for the Cancer Society BUT WE DON'T WANT OUR PICTURES IN YOUR STUPID BLOG!!!!
SPCA apologizes after boy was 'traumatized'
Taken to room full of dead animals. 10-year-old had nightmares after taking the body of beloved family dog to shelter
IRWIN BLOCK, The Gazette
Published: 1 hour ago
When you are a child and have had a dog all your young life, the last goodbye is crushing
But that final, heartfelt departure became a horror story for 10-year-old Justin Miller-Clarke, who was ushered in to the SPCA last Friday to see how the body of his beloved dog, Marley, would be handled.
And now, an embarrassed SPCA has had to apologize to Justin and his family over the ''disposal'' of the beloved member of the family.
Email to a friend
Font:****Justin's mother, Jacqueline Miller, described the events that followed the family's discovery of the 10-year-old dog, a German shepherd-Rottweiler mix who died at home while they were out.
They did not know what to do with Marley so they called the
SPCA on Jean Talon St. W., which said it would accept the body.
"We drove there and a man helped carry our dog out of the car. He then asked if we would like to come with the dog to say our last goodbyes," Miller recounted.
"He then proceeded to take us into the basement of the SPCA.
I was confused; I thought he would take us to an exam room or something."
The SPCA worker led them to a chute, which he opened and said: "It's full."
He then took the family down a long hallway in a room with bins.
"I could see dead animals on the top of (the bins), and I could also see a dead and bleeding cat on a table," Miller recalled.
The SPCA worker then placed Marley on a cement floor in the room filled with animal carcasses and told the family it could say goodbye.
"I was in total shock, my 10-year-old son was horrified - we both had nightmares and cannot forget the images we were exposed to.
"My son is traumatized - he asked me why they are throwing out animals like garbage," said Miller, who is a psychologist and Vanier College teacher.
In response to these events, Montreal SPCA executive director Pierre Barnoti said: "I'm horrified that one of our employees would take someone to our cold room."
They are kept there before they are sent to be cremated at another facility, he added.
"It is very hard to see that your dog is included with other animals waiting to be transported for cremation.
"It's an error of judgment on the part of our employee, who should have been sensitive to a 10-year-old," he said, adding that he "personally apologized" to the family.
Now...that would be interesting but I believe it would take more that three officers to put down this blogger!!!

Who Is the Christ?

The Chair of Saint Peter, apostle
Matthew 16: 13-19
When Jesus went into the region of Caesarea Philippi he asked his disciples, "Who do people say that the Son of Man is?" They replied, "Some say John the Baptist, others Elijah, still others Jeremiah or one of the prophets." He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" Simon Peter said in reply, "You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God." Jesus said to him in reply, "Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah. For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my heavenly Father. And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it. I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven."
Introductory Prayer: I come before you, Lord, a sinner in awe of your great love and mercy. I believe in you, and I put you at the center of my life. I humbly put all that I am before you and, like the apostles, recognize my littleness before your grandeur. With the help of the Blessed Mother’s intercession, I place this meditation into your hands, trusting that you will give me the graces that I need most.
Petition: Lord, help me to recognize my complete dependence on you for grace to live according to your will. Help me to detach myself more each day from the enslaving clutches of sin and vice in my life.
1. Making the Faith My Own In today’s Gospel, Jesus asks his apostles to tell him who others say he is. Then he challenges them to take ownership and say who they think he is. Christ wants us to make an act of faith in him. He has called us to himself to be his disciples in a world that has labeled him everything under the sun. Today, people want Christ to be whom they feel comfortable with, but there is only one Christ for us to follow and worship, and that is the crucified Christ. Christ wants our hearts, not someone else’s opinion.
2. Acknowledging Christ before Others Peter acknowledges who Christ is by saying that he is the Messiah, the Son of the Living God. In other words, he is calling him God. This is a revelation to all, but it is one that Christ wants his apostles to understand and embrace completely, because it is essential to all he teaches them. Peter stands before his peers and says this in all confidence. He sets for us an example of how we are to respond before others, even perfect strangers. It isn’t always easy to stand up for our faith in Christ, in his divinity, especially since the world wants to take that away and make him simply one among equals. However, we preach Christ, the Only Son of God.
3. Your Reward Will Be Great in Heaven Maybe we won’t get a pat on the back or be praised by Christ like St. Peter was, but we can be assured that our testimony doesn’t go unnoticed. God our Father sees all and is pleased when we bear witness to his Son’s most holy name. As we journey through Lent, let us continue to offer Christ all that we are and to preach his name in season and out of season. Christ is counting on each of us to be his faithful friends and to be willing to embrace his holy Cross out of love.
Conversation with Christ: Christ, so often in today’s society people trample upon your most precious name. St. Peter, our first pope, gave witness to your divinity to the point of death. Our Holy Father continues to bear witness and inspire us all. I want to be a better witness of you, Lord, and allow people to see you in me. I want all souls to be saved and to know and love you fully. I thank you for being with me and strengthening me in the often difficult task of bringing you to souls.
Resolution: I will take advantage of an occasion to bear witness to Christ today.
