Terry Fincher (8 July 1931 – 6 October 2008) was an award-winning British photojournalist. His career took off in 1956 when he accompanied British forces that invaded Egypt during the Suez Crisis. He later did five tours of Vietnam covering the war there for the Daily Express, as well as reporting extensively from trouble spots in the Middle East and Africa. He was British press photographer of the year for 1957, 1959, 1964, and 1967, and runner-up in 1968 (as of September 2013, a still unbeaten record).
He was the subject of This Is Your Life in 1976 when he was surprised by Eamonn Andrews. Lake Osakis is a lake in Todd and Douglas counties in west-central Minnesota. The town of Osakis is situated on the southwest shore of the lake. The lake received its English name by translation from the Ojibwe Ozaagi-zaaga’igan, meaning “the Sauk’s Lake. The lake is supposed to have received its name due to a historical association with a small group of Sauks who, having been banished from their tribe for murder, made camp on the shores of Lake Osakis.
Osakis is a large prairie lake, with a surface area of 6,270 acres (25.4 km2) and a maximum depth of 73 feet (22 m). Gamefish present in the lake include black crappie, bluegill, largemouth bass, northern pike, pumpkinseed, smallmouth bass, walleye, and yellow perch. Osakis is an exceptional walleye lake; it has long been known as the “Mother Lake” because the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources uses a fishtrap on Bull Creek to obtain milt and eggs from walleyes for use in breeding and stocking programs.

Leading founders were Thomas Leishman and William Milligan, and the first secretary was James Cooper. Although always a minority within the Church of Scotland, the Society has at times proved influential. It grew out of the Church Service Society (founded 1865), but has not confined itself to interest in liturgies or form.
The Society was active in seeking and achieving Article 1 of the Articles Declaratory of the Constitution of the Church of Scotland, defining the trinitarian nature of the Christian faith and the “catholicity” of the Church. A notable congregation for its historic connections with the Society and with Scoto-Catholicism is Govan Old Parish Church, Glasgow. Twelve former Presidents of the Society have served as Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland.
King Kelly of the U.S.A. is a 1934 American romantic musical film directed by Leonard Fields. The film stars then popular singer Guy Robertson in his only feature film appearance. James W. Kelly (Guy Robertson) and his pal Happy Moran (Edgar Kennedy) are taking their all-girl-dancing troupe across the ocean to tour Europe, when Kelly and the mysterious Catherine Bell (Irene Ware), fall for each other, literally. When their backers pull out, Happy and Kelly manage to scrounge enough dough to get the girls back home; but, find themselves broke, in Europe, in a tiny country where the GDP is measured in mops.
Time is running out, as Prince Alexis, (William Orlamond), invades, from the neighbouring country, to seize the castle and marry the Princess. Their only defence is the women and their “Personality Mops”, when the army quits, over back wages; and, Kelly is being marched off in front of a firing squad. California Reclamation Districts are legal subdivisions within California’s Central Valley that are responsible for managing and maintaining the levees, fresh water channels, or sloughs (pronounced slü), canals, pumps, and other flood protection structures in the area.
Historically, a reclamation district represents former wetlands that were “reclaimed” for agriculture. The reclamation districts were created by acts of State Legislature, mostly in the early 1900s in order to allow land to be used for agriculture. For example, Reclamation District No. 1000 was created on April 8, 1911. Reclamation was usually accomplished by the introduction of levee systems along with other flood control mechanisms to prevent flooding in wetland areas.
