Bexley woman uses stones and her art to spread love and kindness during pandemic
Randi Eisen is a resident who loves to paint stones to make them beautiful. Through this, she wants to convey that each stone is different, but the meaning is the same, and each rock is as bright and colorful as her.
This all started way before the COIVD-19 came. Her mom Denise Blank, used to love painting and giving these stones to others as a piece of happiness.
Both mother and daughter used to go around Bexley, leaving their kindness rocks at a different location from where many people would pick those stones, and it made Blank's day as she loved to give them to others more than painting them.
But in December of 2019, Blank passed away after having a battle with cancer.
"I know she lives within all of us, and she was a very positive person, and she loved the spread kindness," Eisen said.
Like Blank, Eisen also loves to do this.
Now she is using her art to spread messages, and now it works as inspiration for those who pick it.
Appreciation. Kindness. Love. These were the things her mother wanted, and Eisen's rocks aren't for herself. She doesn't sign it with her name else. She uses the signature "XOXO" to show her affection.

6th street bars hold a “soft opening” in hope of soon reopening the bars to public
Many 6th street bars are hoping to get a green light to reopen their bars from Governor Greg Abbott. As they had been closed for two or more months, they organized a "soft opening" on Friday night, but they did not serve any customers.
Some bars took down the plyboards they used to close shops, and musicians played music while the employees were working to reopen the bars.
These musicians included a DJ from Library and another artist from The Blind Pig Pub. The scene gave people the hope that things will get back normal soon.
A part of the "soft opening" was that the workers would stand outside the bars as if they were open, but they did not allow customers by saying, "I'm sorry, we're not open to the public yet."
Many bar owners in 6th street expect the governor to announce the opening fo bars on Monday. As May 18 is the date for Abbot to announce about reopening of Daycare and also offices, gyms and manufacturers can open their businesses with some restrictions.
In an interview on Thursday, Governor Abbott said, "Bars bring people together; bars have to operate counter-intuitively to what they typically do. Bar owners have reached out to us, saying they can operate like restaurants where people would be sitting at a table where they can be separate from others."

Republican lawmakers set out a list of priorities for when the legislative session resumes
Colorado Republican senators held a news conference Monday to outline some of their goals as next week's legislative session begins.
Approximately 20 Republican lawmakers stood on the capital 's eastern steps as many others participated using Zoom to reflect on the measures, they would like to see taken to support small enterprises, rural communities, seniors, and education.
Rep. Lori Saine says she would like to see any property tax reform in the form of a bill for small companies to encourage counties to reduce or lower interest rates for their properties.
Rep. Saine has supported the rise in the exemption from business property taxes and improvements to the wage gap for restaurants.
Meanwhile, Rep. Neville emphasized the need to preserve the exemption from senior homesteads, claiming it would definitely be the greatest challenge as lawmakers move to the city.
Rep. Garnett said he needs the Republicans' support, so he hopes to do as best as possible to secure issues like the exception from senior homesteads. Nevertheless, in a poor budget crisis, drastic cuts are falling to other services without government support.
The Legislative session is set to start following Memorial Day which will last three weeks.

EEUU sanciona a empresa china por sus lazos con aerolínea de Irán Mahan Air que "facilitan envíos a Venezuela" - Aporrea

9-05-20.-El Gobierno de Estados Unidos ha anunciado este martes sanciones contra una empresa china por "dar servicio" a la aerolínea iraní Mahan Air, sometida a medidas punitivas desde 2011 por supuestamente entregar armas a grupos terroristas. Las sanciones afectan a la compañía Shanghai Saint Logistics Limited debido a que, según Washington, "da agentes de servicios de venta para la aerolínea iraní, designada especialmente como terrorista global", según ha indicado el Departamento en un comu ... "China es uno de los cada vez menos países que acogen a Mahan Air, que entrega armas y terroristas en todo el mundo en nombre de Irán. Esta cooperación tiene consecuencias", ha dicho el portavoz del Departamento de Estado, Mike Pompeo. Estados Unidos designó a Mahan Air en 2011 por dar apoyo a la Fuerza Quds de la Guardia Revolucionaria de Irán y ha acusado a la aerolínea de "facilitar envíos a Venezuela para apoyar al antiguo régimen ilegítimo de (el presidente, Nicolás) Maduro". "Es igualmente preocupante que Mahan Air parezca estar transportando oro desde las arcas de Venezuela de vuelta a Irán, privando al pueblo venezolano de los recursos que necesita para reconstruir su economía", señaló Pompeo. "Como siempre, los régimenes autoritarios están más interesados en su propia supervivencia que en las necesidades de su pueblo", remachó. Cabe mencionar que el pasado 13 de Abril el vicecanciller de Venezuela para América del Norte, Carlos Ron, destacó que su país tiene derecho a fortalecer las relaciones con Irán para afrontar las consecuencias de las ilegales sanciones impuestas por Estados Unidos. "Para enfrentar las "sanciones" de EEUU, Venezuela tiene el legítimo derecho de cooperar con Irán y mejorar su industria petrolera. Actividades ilegales son las de EEUU y Colombia que planifican incursiones de mercenarios a Venezuela para derrocar al gobierno", indicó el funcionario a través de su cuenta de Twitter. Las tensiones entre Washington y Teherán han aumentado desde que Estados Unidos se retirara en 2018 del acuerdo nuclear de 2015 y repuntaron en enero después de que el Ejército estadounidense asesinara en un bombardeo en Irak al jefe de la Fuerza Quds de la Guardia Revolucionaria, Qasem Soleimani. *Con información de Europa Press
