THOMAS and CHRISTINA PALMERLEE

The Cannon House Office Building has its fair share of well-known faces, but there’s one popular character that waits patiently just outside its walls every evening in Washington. She has no interest in politics or the economy. She just sits quietly at the northeast corner of the building every night around 5:15, her big brown eyes searching for one thing: her friend. Her attention is unwavering. And when she finally sees him, she races toward him with a huge smile, her red hair flying. And then she licks him. It’s a simple moment of joy for Thomas Palmerlee [Albert Seward, Albert Earl, Albert Seward, Stephen Asa, Amos, Amos, David, Joshua, John, John] and his dog, Jedda. And a nightly tradition that has become a reason to smile for many more on Capitol Hill. Thomas' wife, Christina, has been bringing Jedda to First Street and Independence Avenue SE for several years where they wait for her husband, an associate division director with the Transportation Research Board, to come home from work via bus or Metro. The ritual is so expected that Congress could nearly set its watch by it. About 5 on any weekday, Christina ventures from their home on C Street SE with Jedda, red-haired Chow mix. Walking slowly due to her arthritis, Christina makes her way to the Cannon benches and pours Jedda a bowl of water. But the 9-year-old dog doesn’t go unnoticed by passers-by. Library of Congress employee Mark Brown has been stopping to say hello and pet Jedda for more than a year. "I don’t have dogs but I enjoy them," he said. He recalled running into Jedda and both her owners on a walk elsewhere in the neighborhood, and the dog wagged her tail excitedly when she saw him. "As long as she’s not focused on waiting for Tom, she’ll give you some attention," Brown said. The Palmerlees aren’t sure how their tradition began. "I think it’s just something we evolved into," Tom said. The Palmerlees, who met in college and married in 1963, came to the Capitol Hill neighborhood 30 years ago, and have been there ever since. They don’t have children but have had four dogs over the years. "I tell my wife, ‘People wouldn’t notice us at all without the dog,' " Tom said.

CINDA RAE and DAVID EARLE PARMELEE

Kaunda Magee was under guard in a McComb, Miss., hospital after eluding authorities for three weeks in Louisiana's Florida parishes and southwest Mississippi, allegedly breaking into camps and homes, raping a man, stealing a gun, tying up a woman, threatening people at gunpoint, exchanging fire with officers and shooting a police dog, The manhunt began after Magee reportedly invaded a home in Pine, La., and raped the male occupant, said Scott Blair, the chief criminal deputy for the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office. In a subsequent chase, shots were fired at deputies and a trooper. Ten days later, deputies located Magee and tried to take him into custody in Tangipahoa Parish, but he fled into the woods. Days later, Cinda Rae Parmelee, left, [David Burtis, David Valentine, Frank Ward, David Kirtland, David, David, Joseph, Joseph, Isaac, John, John] returned to her home near Kentwood, La., about lunchtime, and reached to open the curtain over a closet when a man grabbed her arm. Magee put a gun in her face, she said, then forced her to get down on the closet floor where he bound her with leather straps and sashes from bathrobes. He lowered blinds and locked the doors and windows in her house, she said. He then moved her to a bunk bed in a front bedroom, "so he could keep an eye on me." A nervous Magee was constantly checking out the windows to see if anyone was coming, she said. Her handyman, Turk, knocked at the door. She begged Magee not to, and eventually Turk left. During the nearly two hours Magee held Cinda, she said she witnessed his vicious as well has his kinder side. When her brother, David Earle Parmelee, called her cellphone, Magee pushed the phone to her face and asked who it was. Magee wanted to know if her brother would come over. "Not necessarily," she told him. "Good, because if he does, I will have to shoot him, Turk and you," Magee told her. "I can’t take those chances," he said and hung up her phone. At other times, Magee seemed concerned about her comfort, she said. "He asked me if I wanted something to drink, or a cigarette. At one point, he turned on the air-conditioner after he asked if I was hot," and became concerned she was cold, and covered her with a blanket. Magee was spooked a couple of times when Cinda’s parrot, George, in a cage on the porch, spoke. In the meantime, Turk had gone to David's nearby house and told him what he knew. After David's abbreviated phone call to his sister, he went over and found the screen door locked, which was unusual, and knocked on the windows. He let himself in through the front door and noticed the bedroom door was closed. When he reached to open it, Magee threw it open and shoved a gun in David's face. "One move, and you’re dead," David said Magee had told him, along with an expletive. David spun and ducked, and Magee warned him: "If you run, I will shoot you." But David bobbed and weaved his way to and out the front door, ran the length of the porch, and jumped over the railing; Magee never fired a shot. Meanwhile, Cinda, who had worked herself free, dived out of a bedroom window after discovering Magee had taken her .22-caliber handgun, which he is accused of later using to shoot a police dog. A few seconds later, Magee roared out of the driveway in her silver Hummer H3, right. Spotted by police, Magee ditched the Hummer and fled into the woods. Cinda said she was certain she would die: "I was wondering who I would see when I died." Magee remained hidden in Tangipahoa Parish woods until fleeing north into Mississippi in a stolen Chevrolet Suburban. The next afternoon, Richard Montet and a friend were working on a project in Montet’s yard when a Louisiana State Police trooper showed up to check a pair of trailers parked on Montet’s property in Pike County. When the officer walked toward one of the trailers, Montet heard a noise inside. Montet said the trooper entered the camper and he heard him order someone to "put the gun down!" Shots erupted and a moment later, Magee crashed through the camper’s back window. Magee then ran a few paces as the trooper came around the side of the vehicle, and Magee turned around pointing his pistol at them. Montet said his friend, who had picked up his wife’s "snake gun," fired the single-barrel .410, dropping Magee. Pike County Sheriff Mark Shepherd said Magee remained hospitalized with multiple wounds. District Attorney Rick Wood, of the 22nd Judicial District, said he would file papers to extradite Magee to Louisiana.

CHRIS PARMELEE

Slumping Minnesota has called up first baseman/outfielder Chris Parmelee from its New Britain, Conn., farm team in September. In his first at-bat in the second, Chris had a sharp single to center field. He added another one in the fourth, and then struck out and grounded out in his final two appearances in the team's 3-0 loss to the Chicago White Sox. The Twins made franchise history that night by starting three players who made their major league debuts in the same game: Chris, pitcher Liam Hendricks and center fielder Joe Benson. Chris and Benson, both 23, were called up from the Double-A Rock Cats. At his first post-game interview, Chris was succinct: "I'm here, I'm going to learn and listen to everything the veterans have to say. When I get in there, I'm going to play 100 percent. That's about it." The 6-foot-1, 235-pound left-hander was born in Long Beach, Calif., and was a standout at Chino Hills (Calif.) High School. The Twins selected him with their first-round (20th overall) pick in the 2006 draft. Since then he's played for the Fort Myers, Fla, Miracle, and the Rock Cats. Chris and Benson wanted to make a good impression for their debuts, but they ended up paying for it. Both wore suits and were fined $100 each by manager Ron Gardenhire for being overdressed. "They came in lookin' all nice, coming to the big leagues," Gardenhire told the Minneapolis Star Tribune. "I said: 'That's one-hundred bucks apiece because you just made me look bad in my blue jeans.' That was their first welcome to the big leagues." Chris hit a scorching .355, with four home runs, in his first 21 major league games.

  • Alan Parmelee, the Loveland, Colo., man is homeless -- again. In 2003, he was headed to the racetrack when he stopped at what was formerly a gas station at U.S. 287 and Colorado 402. That's where he first met Shelley Maul.They didn't see each other again until 2006, when Alan was living on the streets and Maul ran into him. He said Alan could park his van in the driveway of his home. That same year, Maul got a pacemaker. And to keep him from having to live in a nursing home, Alan offered stay with and care for him. Four months ago, Maul died and Alan was left alone in the home. Unable to pay the electric bill, Alan relied on candles for light. One left burning on the dishwasher started a fire that rendered the house uninhabitable. The Larimer Humane Society's Animal Control recovered Maul's 10 cats, unharmed. Thanks to the Red Cross, Alan spent the next three nights in a motel, and after that he'll continue working in the siding business with a Berthoud company and hunt for a new home.

OLIVER PARMLEY

Horry County Police Sgt. Oliver Parmley has been named Carolina Weekly's Public Servant of the Week. Oliver graduated from Conway High School and went on to major in criminal justice at Horry Georgetown Tech and Coastal Carolina University. Oliver joined the Conway Police Department in 1987, starting as a patrol officer and later was promoted to detective. "On patrol you interact with people every shift. In investigations, you get deeper into an issue with people, trying to help them. You have to be straightforward and make sure you do not mislead victims as to what you can and can't do. I always asked myself, 'What would I want to hear from someone if I was on the other side of the desk.' " Oliver moved to the sheriff's office in 1995. Initially, he was assigned to process serving and extraditions, and then moved to court security. Oliver now is in charge of security for the county's Judicial Complex. "Every day we find people who forget they have a pipe or a joint in their pocket or other things not allowed in the complex," he says. But checking items must be done carefully. "Just because a person is using a cane, we can?t assume it is just for walking. We have to check it to make sure it does not have a knife or other dangerous object concealed in it." Oliver credits his staff for keeping the courts and court personnel safe. "I establish the plan, but the people who work for me carry it out. All the credit goes to them. I learn from each one of them every day." He and his wife, Lytonia, have three sons -- Isaac, Shaquille, and Andre -- and a daughter, Jasmine.

CHRIS PARMELEE

For those keeping score at home, it was the old 3-2-6-1-5-3-4-6-8 double play. First baseman Chris Parmelee, right, and the New Britain Rock Cats hosted the Binghamton, N.Y., Mets in Double-A contest that has to be seen to be believed. In the top of the fourth inning, Allan Dykstra walked, Eric Campbell singled, and Raul Reyes laid down a sacrifice bunt to put runners on second and third with one out. Jose Coronado then hit a grounder to Chris at first -- and mayhem ensued. "It was strange, real strange to watch," said Rock Cats broadcaster Jeff Dooley. "Parmelee came home, and they were going to cut the lead runner down at the plate. Parmelee was in a rundown, and all of a sudden, you've got two guys at third. There was such a delay, one guy breaks back for second, the other guy breaks for home." Breaking for home was Dykstra, caught in a rundown between pitcher Brett Jacobsen and shortstop Deibinson Romero. Romero applied the tag for the inning's first out. But then Coronado was then caught between first and second, with Romero throwing across the diamond to Chris at first in an attempt to get him. But then Campbell broke for third, and the Rock Cats' defenders then turned their attention to him. Second baseman Steve Singleton threw to shortstop Chris Cates covering third, who ran Campbell back toward second before tossing to center fielder Joe Benson, who applied the tag to complete the double play. "It was a circus play, but it worked to perfection," said Dooley. The Rock Cats came out on top, 7-3. See the video. An aside: Chris has been hitting well this season: .277/.360/.413 with four home runs and 30 RBIs.

BRYAN PARMALEE

An art gallery may not seem like the ideal spot for a rock concert, but the Burlington, Vt., City Arts center served as the location for the release party of local two-piece Parmaga's new EP, "Ghost Pops." Said front man Bryan Parmalee: "It was amazing … memorable from setup to take-down." Though Parmaga has been a Burlington music staple for some time -- Bryan, right, and drummer Brett Fiorentino have been playing together on and off for more than three years -- "Ghost Pops" is their first professional album and the first for Angioplasty Records. Musical contemporaries and friends Joey Pizza Slice, DJ Disco Phantom and Ryan Power -- who also worked on the production of the album -- filled out the party's bill. According to Bryan, the band will be heading out of Vermont to get their name out. If all goes well, expect another release from Parmaga around the end of the year.

"My senior photography thesis revolves around one of the oldest methods of printing a photograph known as platinum printing," she said. "I ventured out of the traditional dark room, and instead have printed my photographs the 'old-fashion way' ... in the sun. Using a digital camera, I captured the motion of sports, and then printed my photographs as 'digital negatives' on transparent paper. The digital negatives then underwent the time-consuming act of being printed as platinum prints." Kali does not call herself an artist. "I cannot draw, paint, or sculpt. I can, however, manage to take a picture and I love the way the world looks through a camera lens." A portfolio of her submitted artwork can be seen here.

MICHAEL ELEAZER PARMLY

An interview with former head of the U.S. Interests Section in Havana Michael Eleazer Parmly pertaining to State Department cables published by WikiLeaks appeared in the Swiss daily Le Temps. Here are some of his quotes from the interview, which was published in French. "The documents prove that we have principles, ethics." Michael said of the disclosure, "but [WikiLeaks founder] Julian Assange broke the law by publishing confidential telegrams. Every business has its rules and is entitled to his secrets. Otherwise it's anarchy. Or voyeurism." As for the authorship of the leaked messages linked to him, Michael said he "wrote only 1 or 2 percent of the cables. It was important for me to make the staffers write. It was a form of apprenticeship. I personally did not write the cable on Fidel [Castro]'s health; I only validated it. It is the work of a person who had contacts with the hospitals and physicians. I hope she is never identified." Two dissidents, Vladimiro Roca and Elizardo Sánchez, were identified in a message: "These are two international figures. ... The damage is limited. If, instead, a little-known family man appears in a footnote, he could suffer the consequences of his life." He said that WikiLeaks has had a chilling effect on diplomats. "The publication of the WikiLeaks documents might discourage Cubans from talking to us. Our capitals could be less informed. Intimidated, the diplomats could censor themselves. If I had foreseen WikiLeaks, I would have reduced the production of documents in half. An effort to lower the level of [security] classification had been undertaken. Now, the [classification] 'secret' will again be reinforced."

Charles told Jackson County deputies he watched Webster finish dumping gas into the tank and planned to wait until the family got on their way again. A car driven by Mindee Marie Murphy, 26, of Tompkins Township struck Webster, his truck and Charles' truck about 6:20 p.m., according to the crash report. Webster, 73, of Springport, was killed.

"The pet carrier was just kind of stuck behind the tree here," said Joe, "and the dog was kinda' layin' out. I think the reward had a lot to do with it." The $10,000 must have convinced someone that Dakota wasn't worth stealing. "My wife passed away two months ago in October of cancer," said Volner, of Parson, Tenn. "We didn't have children. We had labs. This was her lab. Her dog." Volner, will split the reward money between Stuart Nelson Park and the McCracken County Humane Society.
