  1. Thanks for the promo, Cole. The story is at Colin
  2. And this is also true when the political leaders are spoon feeding you their distorted version of the truth. A version they spent almost nothing selling the country and now that they are in power they continue feeding you. Colin
  3. Gone Missing ~ A Short Story by Colin Kelly. Sometimes mothers can be overprotective. What happens when that collides with what their children want? Featured stories are from our archive and we think you'll enjoy reading them again — or for the first time. Stand by Me ~ A Short Story by Grant Bentley. Some things in life defy explanation. Click here to read the hundreds of serial novels, short stories, flash fiction, and poems on the Codey's World site.
  4. I agree, Chris. There's nothing more that I can add to what Leonard Pitts says in his article and what you say in your post — other than I agree. Colin
  5. This is GREAT! It made me smile! Thanks, Gee. Colin
  6. Excellent story with a very happy ending. Except, I hope, for how the grandparents on the Lynton side feel about the results. Revenge can also be part of a happy ending. Colin
  7. Outstanding description of life! Colin
  8. The Education and Evolution of Maxwell Grant ~ A Short Story by Cole Parker. Time to buy Max’s first suit. Who could guess how that would turn out? Jimmy's New Life ~ A Short Story by Grant Bentley. Remember Jimmy? After his mother dies of an overdose, Jeff finds him walking down a highway during a blizzard and takes him in. Well, finally, we get a glance at Jimmy‘s new life, his new life with his new dad. A life without constant fear and hurt. If you haven’t read my story Jimmy yet, or if it was a while ago, I would suggest you check it out before reading this one. Featured stories are from our archive and we think you'll enjoy reading them again — or for the first time. Palm Sunday Magic ~ A Short Story by Ruwen Rouhs. This is a story of a student and a young farmer in a village at a time people still used carriages to go from one place to the other. Cars and planes had yet to be invented. The problems in the story are still relevant today. Click here to read the hundreds of serial novels, short stories, flash fiction, and poems on the Codey's World site.
  9. I agree. Unfortunately, the page linked from AD isn't found through the Wayback Machine ( Colin
  10. Codey's World has A Valentine Reflection — a collection of Valentine's Day stories from the past, including Des' story, of course. It's here: Colin
  11. THE LEGEND OF KIWAKAAZI ~ Chapter 43 Completes Book Four of a Novel by Nanak. This is an exciting combination of African folklore, mythology, fantasy, and adventure. The story revolves around a nineteen year old intelligent young scientist, Kiwakaazi, in ancient Africa. In Book Four we have to ask: How is thin, weak and naive Kiwakaazi going to survive against all of those that want to kill him? The epic and yet very spiritual journey of Kiwakaazi and other related stories have been captured in this story. Enjoy! A Valentine Reflection ~ An Anthololgy of Valentine Stories on the Codey's World website by Codey's World Authors and collected by Colin Kelly. This is the Codey’s World 2017 Valentine story anthology, titled A Valentine Reflection. I hope you enjoy reading these stories as much as I enjoyed finding them for you.

  12. An emergency protective order where there's demonstrable proof, like pictures or corroboration by independent witnesses, can be issued by the police in the case where a child has been abused. This type of protective order is limited in time (which may vary by state, though I don't have any of those details); in California it's good for one week. Then a permanent restraining order can be applied for and, if the judge agrees, issued by the court. In California a permanent restraining order can be issued with a term of up to 5 years; they can have a specific term or termination date, and they can be renewed by going to court. Note that the emergency protective order and the permanent restraining order have different names. Colin
  13. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit late on Saturday (February 4, 2017) denied an emergency appeal from the U.S. Department of Justice to restore Trump's immigration ban. This stay is temporary, and will be considered by the Court of Appeals on Monday. One step, but a good step. Colin
  14. I don't know how the Australian legal system works, but in the United States the police couldn't simply remove Peter from the house on the basis of Child Protective Services (because the boys aren't wards of CPS), or prevent Alan from having Troy and Bradley in the house if Peter was present, unless the evidence was presented to the District Attorney who then went to a judge who filed a writ to have him and the children separated. Alan and Peter would be able to appear at a hearing and provide testimony by Troy and by witnesses. What would be issued is a stay-away order for Peter, which means he could be at the house if the children were not present, or in school and at daycare. I assume that there's enough similarity in our judicial systems that, assuming this situation is resolved in Alan and Peter's favor, they could sue the Lyntons for defamation of character and if they win they could obtain a stay-away order preventing the Lyntons from being anywhere near the boys.
