Prospect, IL, native first picked the alto saxophone in the fourth grade when on “instrument day” he chose the sax, even though he didn’t know what it was. As a teen, he would use fake IDs to sneak into nearby Chicago nightclubs such as Kingston Mines to jam with blues musicians. Attending on a music performance scholarship at Southern Illinois University, Sommers began leading his own band. During Atlanta’s Olympic summer games, Sommers performed for the athletes in the Olympic Village. Sommers completed his industrial engineering degree at Southern Illinois University a semester early so he could get to Los Angeles and pursue his dream that much faster. To make ends meet, Sommers started moonlighting in modeling, appearing on the cover of a Harlequin romance novel and landing a small role on the CBS network soap opera The Young and the Restless playing the character Marcus. Being responsible for the visuals and the music for those spots, as well as getting things in on deadline and on budget, inspired Sommers to apply the same discipline to his music. The band had dates around Europe including a performance for Princess Stephanie. He wanted the sound and vibe of his first CD to be a combination of ’70s soul and ’90s production sheen.

Though Caitlyn Jenner, formerly Bruce Jenner, no longer uses her birth name and prefers female pronouns , she had not yet indicated at the time of this writing that she would like to be known by a new name or female pronouns, so this story refers to her as “Bruce” and uses male pronouns. By now, Bruce Jenner has revealed his struggle with gender dysphoria. I never would have dared to speak on this issue before he was comfortable enough to do so first.
It is, after all, his truth, so I knew he should be afforded the dignity to reveal that truth on his own time and in the way he sees fit. I have respectfully kept his secrets private and would have taken his confidences to my grave had he not spoken out. But now, many years into his remarkable life, he has spoken out. His legacy will likely be sprinkled with references such as “Olympian,” “decathlon gold medalist,” “world’s greatest athlete,” “son,” “brother,” “husband,” “father,” “grandfather,” “friend,” and, hopefully, “pioneer” and “trailblazer for the civil rights of the transgender community.
The sharing of my experience is meant to enlighten and inform — to lend a modicum of comfort and support for all those disenfranchised, struggling, discriminated against, searching souls. Bruce’s story, and his struggle, is uniquely his; my experiences with Bruce are commensurately uniquely my own. Following is a brief history of my time with Bruce — a life experience that shaped my existence immeasurably.

Volcan de Fuego, whose name means “Volcano of Fire”, spewed an eight-kilometer five-mile stream of red hot lava and belched a thick plume of black smoke and ash that rained onto the capital and other regions. The charred bodies of victims laid on the steaming, ashen remnants of a pyroclastic flow as rescuers attended to badly injured victims in the aftermath of the eruption.
It was the 3, metre 12, feet volcano’s second eruption this year. A British man who climbed a neighbouring peak the day before the eruption said he feels ‘fortunate’ to have escaped harm. AFP The eruption has killed at least 25 people Image: AFP The erupting volcano has killed dozens and injured hundreds Image: AFP The dead are mostly from farming communities just south of the volcano who were trapped by hot lava flow Image: Some 3, people have been evacuated from the area.
The Foreign Office has told Britons visiting and living near the capital, the city of Antigua and areas near the volcano to keep up to date with local officials’ advice. Richard Fitz-Hugh, a backpacker from Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire, spoke to the Press Association from ash-covered Antigua, around 11 miles from the erupting volcano.

Well, we all know Dee will forever call PT her “teammate” which is not wrong though, but. D To her defence, it’s something different if your gf is your teammate and high profile baller herself and the Aussie captain lol. Yeah, I feel for DT. It would be different for them to be “out” out, since they’re teammates, won championships, PT is a major baller, all that stuff. For better or worse, DT is still the biggest name in women’s basketball, with the most press.
While I’m not holding my breath for an announcement, I expect they will continue to get more open. With PT not playing, I think there will be less pressure.

But the findings come with several caveats that could bog down any effort to pass and implement single-payer in New York, particularly if Republicans continue to wield power in Albany and Washington. First, the Trump administration would have to grant a precedent-shattering federal waiver to redirect all federal, state and Obamacare funds used for Medicaid, Medicare and marketplace tax credits to the New York Health Act. That would supplant premiums, employer contributions and out-of-pocket costs.
