He’s delivered enormous returns for his investors over the last decade and, as a result, is often referred to as ‘Britain’s Warren Buffett’.One way I monitor Smith’s trades is by studying the Fundsmith 13F filings. These are the US regulatory filings that large investment managers are required to complete every quarter. In these filings, managers list their long US equity positions.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Recently, Fundsmith posted its filing for the first quarter of 2021 so here’s a look at some stocks Smith has purchased for his funds recently.Fundsmith goes defensiveThe most recent 13F filing reveals Fundsmith increased its positions in a number of consumer staples stocks. These included Jack Daniel’s owner Brown-Forman, consumer goods company Church & Dwight, healthcare giant Johnson & Johnson, spices specialist McCormick & Co, and soft drinks giant PepsiCo. I think this is an interesting move by Smith. These are all relatively ‘defensive’ stocks. Typically, ones that tend to hold up well when the stock market is falling.To my mind, the fact Smith is adding to these kinds of stocks suggests he’s more than a little cautious about the market right now. Given the amazing run stocks have had recently, I think this is probably a smart move from the portfolio manager. If the market experiences a correction in the near term, these stocks could potentially provide Fundsmith with more than a degree of protection. There’s no guarantee they will do so though. Reopening stocksSmith didn’t only buy defensive stocks throughout the first quarter however. Another stock he added to during the period was Visa, the largest payments company in the world.I like this move. I think Visa should benefit from the reopening of the global economy and the return of international travel. For every $1 spent in physical locations globally, around 15 cents goes through Visa’s vast network. But it’s worth pointing out that Visa stock is quite expensive. So its high valuation (forward-looking P/E ratio of 36) adds a certain amount of risk.Smith also added to medical device maker Stryker during the period. This is potentially another reopening play. It faced challenges last year when elective medical procedures were postponed due to Covid-19. However, now that vaccines are being rolled out and procedures are resuming, the outlook for the company appears to be improving.A pet care stockFinally, it’s also worth noting that Fundsmith added to its holding in Zoetis, the world’s largest producer of medicine and vaccinations for pets and livestock. This stock is held in Fundsmith’s Sustainable Equity fund. And this move suggests to me Smith is pretty bullish on the outlook for the ever-growing pet care industry.

Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs December 10, 2012 at 4:33 pm Bishop Katharine, my prayers are with you and the people of South Carolina. May the peace and hope of God be with all of you. December 12, 2012 at 1:47 am Dear Bryan, quick question just for clarification…of what province of the Anglican Communion is ‘The Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina’ a diocese, as you understand it? Tags Presiding Bishop to visit South Carolina diocese Special convention in January will elect provisional bishop Randolph Charles says: Bryan Hunter says: December 11, 2012 at 10:53 am This article is chock-full of factual errors. Despite what TEC “fact” sheet says, there is absolutely nothing in the constitution or canons of TEC that disallows a diocese to leave TEC.Secondly, Bishop Lawrence has stated repeatedly that those parishes which choose to leave the Diocese of South Carolina and realign with TEC are free to do so and go with his blessing and well-wishes in order to re-form as they see fit. Whether they (or TEC) choose to follow TEC canons for creating a new diocese is no longer his concern. However, what these parishes are not allowed to do is to arrogate the identity of The Diocese of South Carolina (including its name, its diocesan seal, and its history). The Diocese of South Carolina (and its seal) are organized and registered under the corporate law of the State of South Carolina. The diocese is a legal entity with Bishop Lawrence and the Standing Committee registered as the leadership.Furthermore, this article suggests that the provisional bishop for this new diocese will replace the Rt Rev Mark Lawrence. Not so. Mark Lawrence remains the duly elected and installed bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina, an ecclesiastical and corporate entity that still persists during its 227 years of uninterrupted existence.Whatever new name the nascent TEC diocese in the Lowcountry of South Carolina chooses for itself, I pray God’s guidance and blessing upon it and the many friends I count within it as they choose their first bishop. Comments are closed. The Rev. Dr. W. Robert Abstein says: Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Ronald J. Caldwell says: Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ December 10, 2012 at 8:51 am This is great news for the Episcopalians of the low country. The slow train wreck in South Carolina has been happening for years if not decades so none of the recent actions of the old diocesan leadership is a surprise. The local Episcopalians and the national church had a pretty good idea and so were prepared. As soon as the diocesan leadership invoked the hitherto secret agreement of the standing committee to break from TEC if TEC took any action against the bishop, an Episcopalian steering committee was formed. Soon after the meeting on November 17 documented the diocese’s withdrawal from TEC, the Presiding Bishop accepted the renunciation of Episcopal Church orders by Bishop Lawrence. As soon as Lawrence was removed as bishop, the steering committee made a plan for a prompt diocesan convention to elect a new provisional bishop and standing committee. All of this decisive action has lifted the hearts of the faithful Episcopalians in lower Carolina. Now that the two groups have completely divided, the Episcopal Church can get on with the business of rebuilding a great diocese.

Yes, the divisions have been present, in one form or another, for decades — but it is now a time when the Diocese of South Carolina will begin to grow, anew, into representatives of Jesus, and serve the People of God, instead of themselves. How I wish I was closer so I could, somehow, be of assistance. Blessings to all from Riviera Beach, Florida December 17, 2012 at 6:27 am As a member of the Diocese of Quincy, I understand the pain that the Episcopalians are feeling. We are still recovering from the stealing of our churches under the leadership of Keith Ackerman. The people of the Diocese of Quincy are dedicated to the tradition of The Episcopal Church.Three years ago we went through what you are going through at this time. I was one of the people that was on the committee that worked to reconstitute The Diocese of Quincy. The Presiding Bishop was with us every step of the way. Don’t be dismayed over what the people that have left TEC are saying about The Episcopal Church. These people have an agenda that was started a long time ago. They feel that they are correct in whatever they say or do. They have been mislead and lied to for years, and at this time, there is nothing that you can say that will change their mind.In the Diocese of Quincy, the people where told that The Episcopal Church was evil and no longer Christian. I can site many statements that were made that will show you to what lengths they will go through to prove their point. The TRUTH never came from THEIR MOUTH. After a while, if you did not not do your own investigation, you would believe those lies.The Diocese of South Carolina will do just fine. During The Diocese of Quincy reconstitution, I was one of seven people that worked with The Presiding Bishop and her Staff. They offered us all the support and assistance that we needed.I like to tell this story to show the heart of The Presiding Bishop and Clay Matthews.My brother died in Virginia. The first day I was there, I received a call from Clay Matthews with condolences. He was calling to also tell me that he had contacted the Bishop of the Southern Diocese of Virginia to contact me. He wanted to make sure that I had pastoral care. A few hours later I talked to the Bishop and the Priest of the The Episcopal Church in Newport News, VA.. To this day, I have no idea how The Presiding Bishop or Clay Matthews were made aware of my brothers death. I cannot tell you how great it was to have this kind of support.I will be with you, as you reconstitute the Diocese of South Carolina on January 25 and 26, 2013May the Peace and Love of The Lord, be with you Always!

I am heartened and encouraged to read of the arrangements by leaders of the continuing diocese and by the presiding bishop. I suppose it has been no surprise to most, given that all this has taken place in the State that is at odds much of the time with much of the nation. But now I pray that the continuing diocese will be empowered by God’s Holy Spirit with a great sense of community as you all move forward with your work and ministries. Rector Albany, NY Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, December 10, 2012 at 4:19 pm My prayers will be with the Diocese of South Carolina as they choose new leadership for the good people there.

It may be a long and painful road, but I pray that all will be well and your good work will continue.

Regardless of what they think of the currect TEC practice, our province of the Anglican Communion works from the bottom up. I believe we have to embrace the belief that the Holy Spirit will not allow the church to be led permanently into error. The time is not yet for unequivocal categorical condemnations.Just a minor correction, Bishop Kenneth Price was from the Diocese of Southern Ohio. Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC [Episcopal News Service] Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori is scheduled to join continuing Episcopalians in the Diocese of South Carolina Jan. 25-26 as they choose a provisional bishop.“We welcome the opportunity to have her with us at this important time in the history of our diocese, and it will be a privilege to share with her firsthand the energy and diversity of the Episcopal Church in the Diocese of South Carolina,” said Hillery Douglas, chairman of the steering committee for the reorganization of the diocese and senior warden of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Charleston, in a press release posted here.There will be a reception and other events involving Jefferts Schori on Jan. 25, according to the release, and she will then preside over the convention the next day at Grace Episcopal Church in Charleston as delegates elect a provisional bishop and choose people to fill other vacant diocesan offices.A nominating committee of diocesan Episcopalians is working with the presiding bishop to discern a bishop to nominate for the provisional position, the release said.Bishop John Clark Buchanan, who lives in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, and Bishop Charles vonRosenberg of Daniel Island, both retired Episcopal Church bishops, are listed here as advisers to the steering committee.A provisional bishop has all the authority and responsibilities of a diocesan bishop, but typically serves for a set period of time and is meant to be a bridge into the time when the continuing diocese is ready to elect a diocesan bishop or make other decisions about its future.For instance, the Diocese of Quincy, which elected Buchanan to serve provisionally, is actively discerning possible reunification with the adjacent Diocese of Chicago. And in Pittsburgh, continuing Episcopalians recently ordained and consecrated Bishop Dorsey W. M. McConnell to be the diocese’s eighth bishop. Bishop Kenneth Price, from the neighboring Diocese of Southern Ohio, served as provision bishop of Pittsburgh for three years.Fort Worth and San Joaquin have elected more than one provisional bishop over time. Bishop Rayford High is the Diocese of Fort Worth’s third provisional bishop, following Bishop C. Wallis Ohl and Bishop Edwin “Ted” Gullick. And Bishop Chet Talton is the Diocese of San Joaquin’s second provisional bishop, succeeding Bishop Jerry Lamb.Some of the continuing dioceses also had the assistance of bishops who served in consulting or assisting roles until they were able to convene to elect a provisional bishop.The continuing Diocese of South Carolina needs a new episcopal leader because Jefferts Schori said Dec. 5 that Mark Lawrence had renounced his orders. She and her Council of Advice agreed that in a Nov. 17 speech to a special diocesan convention, Lawrence said the diocese had left the Episcopal Church a month earlier when Jefferts Schori restricted his ministry on Oct. 17 after the church’s Disciplinary Board for Bishops had certified to her that he had abandoned the Episcopal Church “by an open renunciation of the discipline of the church.”When the day the board’s decision was announced, the diocesan Standing Committee said that the action “triggered two pre-existing corporate resolutions of the diocese, which simultaneously disaffiliated the diocese from the Episcopal Church and called a special convention.”Lawrence asked for and received affirmation from those at the Nov. 17 gathering of that departure.Lawrence and those he leads continue to say that he is still the bishop of the Diocese of South CarolinaAccording to a fact sheet posted on the Episcopal Church’s website: “Dioceses cannot leave the Episcopal Church. While some clergy and individuals may choose to leave, congregations and property remain in the diocese to be used for the mission of the Episcopal Church.”– The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service. Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI By Mary Frances SchjonbergPosted Dec 10, 2012 December 11, 2012 at 7:28 pm The Trouble is when the Episcopal Church’s leadership at the national level are no longer holding to the traditions of the Church, and then normal bread and butter Christians in the Episcopal Church no longer have natural or organic fellowship or unity. The Roman Catholic Church has included them in a special generous offer, and the majority of Anglicans in the world would welcome them, just not the North American Anglicans who are in communion with Canterbury. My prayers are with Bishop Mark Lawrence and the Christians he shepherds, he is put in a very hard position by a denomination that is now very hard to reconcile with traditional Christianity; Catholic, Protestant or Orthodoxy. The exodus from the Episcopal Church by ordinary Christians must indicate something is not right.

Tagged with: Awards North East Seventeen charities working in the areas of youth, welfare and community have won Weston Charity Awards this year.The winning charities receive their awards in a celebration event held today (14th June) at Thinktank, Birmingham Science Museum.This year’s Weston Charity Awards winners include Blackburn Youth Zone, which provides sports, art and youth work to more than 2,000 young people across Blackburn and Darwen, aimed at building confidence and raising their aspirations for the future, Family Help Darlington, which provides safe, temporary accommodation for women and children fleeing domestic abuse across the UK, and Focus Charity in Leicester, which provides volunteering opportunities to 340 young people each year that help them contribute positively to the community and to themselves.The Weston Charity Awards give small charities across the North of England and the Midlands unrestricted funding plus access to strategic support and mentoring from business leaders through the organisation Pilotlight.Gillian Murray, Pilotlight chief executive, said:“This is an opportunity for the Award winners to develop and hone the skills they need to ensure they can weather the storm and become more robust in today’s changing climate. They end the year-long Pilotlight programme with more resilient and adaptable organisations.”Steve Clark, centre manager of Hordon Youth and Community Centre, which won in 2015, said: Advertisement Weston Charity Awards announce 2017 winners AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis5 Melanie May | 14 June 2017 | News “After two years, our turnover has increased by more than 50% and we’ve more than doubled our capacity. Meanwhile, our knowledge has improved and our physical structure has changed. All of this was underpinned by the work we did through the awards. It has opened up so many doors for us.”The Garfield Weston Foundation launched the awards in 2014 to benefit charities in the North East of England and expanded their reach in 2015. Announcing this year’s winners, it said that the constantly evolving political landscape and uncertain economic environment were among the key factors impacting on the success of small charities today and called on small charities to develop ways to help them become more resilient. It has identified five areas of major disruption, which it says offer equal amounts of risk and opportunity, depending on how they are managed: politics, the economy, technology, trust and transparency, and increasing demand.Philippa Charles, Garfield Weston Foundation director, said:“We are living through a period of unprecedented change. Charities must be resilient and sustainable if they are to support people through such disruptive times. The better prepared charities are, the better placed they are to deliver the support needed. It is quite literally a case of adapt or die. This is why the Weston Charity Awards help charities become stronger, more effective and fit for the future.” 64 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis5 63 total views, 1 views today About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Representative Bob Goodlatte – House Judiciary Committee Chairman – pledged action on immigration reform legislation Thursday – saying the immigration issue needs to be solved and work is happening toward that goal. Goodlatte says committee members are working on four bills that address different components of the current U.S. immigration system – as well as the four the committee has already approved – which includes one on agricultural workers.

He says the committee has objections to the Senate bill – yet doesn’t want to kill the Senate bill. Goodlatte would like to see the full House vote on the committee-passed bills in October – but there’s no guarantee that will happen as the House agenda is full of other items.

Three other Belsat employees (cameraman Zmitser Soltan and the reporters Zmitser Krauchuk and Artsiom Bahaslauski) and Dzmitry Dzmitrieu, a photographer for the independent weekly newspaper Novy Chas, were arrested on 1 November while covering the protests, and one day later were declared suspects in a criminal case under Article 342 (“mass unrest”). On 13 November, security forces searched Dzmitrieu’s apartment as part of the investigation.Journalist detained by intelligence agencyKatsiaryna Barysevich, a journalist for the news website tut.by and one of the country’s best-known court reporters, has been held in a Belarusian intelligence agency (KGB) detention centre since 19 November. She was arrested while reporting on the death of Raman Bandarenka, who died in unexplained circumstances after his arrest on 11 November. Barysevich had quoted a doctor as saying that, contrary to what the authorities claim, no alcohol had been found in the blood of 31-year-old Bandarenka. The Prosecutor General’s Office then launched criminal proceedings against the doctor for “disclosing medical secrets” and “passing on false information,” and Barysevich was also arrested in the course of these proceedings. In September, criminal proceedings were initiated against Yahor Martsinovich, editor-in-chief of the weekly newspaper Nasha Niva, on charges of defamation. The case against him is based on an article published by the paper in which a well-known DJ claimed that deputy interior minister Alexander Barsukov had beaten him in prison. Police searched Martsinovich’s apartment on 23 September and confiscated technical equipment and data storage media. Martsinovich was interrogated by the Investigative Committee and remained in solitary confinement for three days. BelarusEurope – Central Asia Condemning abusesProtecting journalists ImprisonedWomenImpunityFreedom of expressionJudicial harassmentViolence Initially, the journalist was given seven days in detention for “participating in an unauthorized event and resisting state authority.” Five days later, she was charged under Article 342 of the Belarusian Criminal Code with “organizing and preparing actions that seriously violate the public order or actively participating in such actions” – a far more serious offence. She is now to remain in custody until 20 January, awaiting trial. If convicted, she faces up to three years in prison. Her husband, Belsat journalist Ihar Ilyash, was also arrested unexpectedly on 24 November. According to Belsat, he was not involved in the coverage of the recent protests. “The charges brought against Katsyarina Andreyeva clearly illustrate the travesty of justice to which journalists are subjected in Belarus,” said Jeanne Cavelier, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “The laws are abused and evidence is fabricated in order to hamper their work and reduce them to silence. Katsyarina Andreyeva and the other detained journalists must be released at once and the charges against them must be dropped.”Criminal prosecution for reporting on mass protets Organisation According to the Belarusian Association of Journalists, 367 media workers have been detained since the controversial presidential election on 9 August, and 78 of them have already served detention sentences. Eleven journalists are currently in prison. The association recently summarized the most serious violations of press freedom committed in Belarus in recent months in an English-language report. to go further News Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown At least nine journalists in Belarus are currently being prosecuted or threatened with criminal prosecution. Belsat journalist Darya Chultsova was arrested in Minsk on the same day as Andreyeva, and criminal proceedings are presumably also underway against her. However, according to the independent Belarusian Association of Journalists (BAJ), her lawyer signed a confidentiality agreement and therefore cannot even confirm whether a case has been opened against Chultsova, and if so, for which offences. November 27, 2020 Belarus: Journalistic work must not be criminalized RSF_en First case of several months’ detention for covering protestsA Minsk-based reporter for Belsat, a TV channel based in Poland that is aimed at Belarusian viewers, Andreyeva was arrested on 15 November in an apartment from which she was filming the crackdown on a demonstration in Minsk’s Square of Change. The owner of the apartment confirmed this in court. According to the journalist, the door was broken down and around ten security officers entered the apartment and took her away. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on the Belarusian regime to immediately release imprisoned Belsat journalist Katsyarina Andreyeva and to not use criminal proceedings to prevent media workers from doing their job.Andreyeva has been charged with participating in protests against President Alexander Lukashenko and faces up to three years in prison. Until now, reporters covering the mass protests in Belarus have been detained for no more than 15 days. Andreyeva is to remain in custody until at least 20 January, pending trial.

He was arrested on 25 March after criticizing Lukashenko’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic in an editorial. Ten days after his arrest, Satsuk was released on condition that he check in regularly with the authorities. Satsuk was accused of having accepted bribes, for which he faces up to ten years in prison. The journalist was also investigated for fraud, but no official charges were brought against him.

Story David Raleigh. Andrew Moloney, Hook & Ladder.Photograph Liam Burke/Press 22THE operator of a Limerick mobile coffee truck who was threatened with prosecution after giving free drinks and food to frontline healthcare workers fighting COVID-19, said more needs to be done to help businesses survive the pandemic.Andrew Moloney, operations manager with Hook & Ladder catering company, said they received a letter from Limerick City and County Council on February 5th notifying them of a prosecution for breaching the Casual Trading Act.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The letter stated that the alleged offence related to the company operating “HAL”, their coffee truck, on the grounds of the University Hospital Limerick (UHL) and University Maternity Hospital Limerick (UMHL).Mr Moloney said he contacted the Council to explain they had not traded as they had not charged for the drinks and food, but the Council claimed it had evidence they had been trading.On February 15th, a representative of Hook & Ladder received an email from a council official which stated, “if you are giving out free coffees/teas etc to all customers then you are not in breach of the Casual Trading Act, and the Council will not be pursuing you under this legislation”.Mr Moloney said there is too much red tape for businesses especially under lockdown, and that the Council had jumped the gun.“We were providing a free ‘hug-in-a-mug’ to the frontline workers. We’ve been in the hospital unfortunately as a family for quiet a number of years, and we have seen what they do in there.”“We have seen that, pre-Covid (the hospital staff) were Trojans.”“Most recently, an elderly member of my family was in UHL. They went in there without Covid and came out of there without Covid, and the staff are doing fantastic work.”“Hook & Ladder have been offering free teas and coffees to frontline workers over the past year from our restaurants, so as we have a truck, and because a lot of (the workers) can’t come to us, we decided to go to them”, Mr Moloney, 29, explained.“We weren’t trading, and we can prove it, just ask the 600 hospital staff we served in UHL and the 300 staff we served in St John’s and the Maternity. They will all advocate that we did not charge a red cent for anything, so, we weren’t trading. Yet, our Council took it upon themselves to issue us with legal proceedings, in these times, which they appear to have backed down from.”Hook & Ladder have called for greater engagement with the Council to find a way of allowing mobile businesses operate during the pandemic.The company said it had investigated applying for a casual trading licence but that it only applies to one specific part of Limerick which is already well served by coffee operators.A Council spokesman said: “Limerick City and County Council does not comment in public about specific dealings between the Council and a customer. The customer can clarify any questions or queries they have with the Council by contacting us.”They said “all businesses must apply for permission to operate on a casual basis, and, currently, the only area in the city where casual trading is permitted is the area surrounding the Milk Market – Carr Street, Robert Street, Cornmarket Row, and portion of Ellen Street”.Independent Councillor Elisa O’Donovan has submitted a notice of motion that the Council would “extend event casual trading licenses during Covid restrictions to facilitate rate paying businesses to operate outdoor grated in specified areas”.In light of this the Council said it had decided “to refer the notice of motion to the Economic Development, Enterprise and Planning SPC for a review”.Healthcare workers in the UL Hospital Group, and at Milford Care Centre which provides palliative care, said they were grateful to Hook & Ladder.A UHL spokesman said: “We can confirm that free coffees/hot drinks were donated to staff on the dates in question on all three sites with the agreement of hospital management. We are grateful for the support so many local organisations and businesses have shown our staff during the pandemic.”Despite HAL being invited to trade at the Gaelic Grounds stadium, Mr Moloney said he was forced to close up after six hours trading today, following a visit from a council official who took a photograph of the mobile truck.Hook & Ladder owner, Oliver Moloney, tweeted HAL had been “kindly invited by the Gaelic Grounds on the Ennis Rd” and that “barista coffee, teas, & hot chops” would be “available from 10am”.A Council spokesman noted, “in general planning, legislation states that anyone operating a business on private property requires planning permission”.Andrew Moloney tweeted tonight “we were forced into the closure of our coffee van after a mere 6 hours of trade, we have decided to concede the battle, but the war for change in our city is only starting”.Limerick GAA did not respond to requests for comment.

WABC-TVBy JOSH MARGOLIN and AARON KATERSKY, ABC News(NEW YORK) — The son of a federal judge in Newark, New Jersey, has been shot and killed, and her husband shot and injured in an attack at the family’s home, according to law enforcement sources.The judge, Esther Salas, was not hurt.Francis “Mac” Womack, the mayor of North Brunswick, New Jersey, told ABC News that the judge’s son has died.The condition of the husband was not immediately known, Middlesex County Prosecutor Yolanda Ciccone told ABC News.The judge’s son opened the door to the family’s North Brunswick home at about 5 p.m. Sunday and was immediately shot, sources said.“He was shot through the heart,” Womack said.The son was a freshman at Catholic University.The judge’s husband was then shot multiple times, according to sources.A suspect “remains at-large,” a law enforcement official said.Investigators have preliminary information that the shootings were carried out by someone dressed as a FedEx driver, according to multiple law enforcement sources.“We are aware of the media reports and are fully cooperating with investigating authorities,” said FedEx Spokesman Jim Masilak in a statement.The mayor said investigators are now “trying to get a hard make on the vehicle” to try and track the suspect.“As a judge, she had threats from time to time, but everyone is saying that recently there had not been any,” said Womack, who is personal friends with the judge and her husband.In a statement, the FBI Newark office said, “The FBI is investigating a shooting that occurred at the home of Judge Esther Salas in North Brunswick Township, New Jersey earlier this evening, July 19. We are looking for one subject and ask that anyone who thinks they may have relevant information please call FBI Newark at 973-792-3001. We are working closely with our state and local partners and will provide additional updates when available.”The New Jersey State Police, the North Brunswick Police and the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s office are also involved in the investigation. The U.S. Marshals have been called to provide the judge with a security detail, according to a law enforcement official.Judge Salas had received threats in the past, the sources said.Authorities are investigating whether there is any connection between those prior threats and the shooting, or whether it possibly involved the husband’s work as a criminal defense attorney.“I know Judge Salas and her husband well, and was proud to recommend her to President Obama for nomination to New Jersey’s federal bench,” New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez said in a statement. “My prayers are with Judge Salas and her family, and that those responsible for this horrendous act are swiftly apprehended and brought to justice.”Salas is the first Latina to serve on the federal bench in New Jersey.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
