FFS!

Just lost £500 on poker and got really steamed. A dirty 88 vs 44 on 567 flop. 3 on river all money in on flop. Did a further £300 on WH blackjack.

Why does this always happen after a good streak? Been playing like a dick.

Thoroughly fucked off.

Because you are a degen, always will be. Thought you were playing 25p/50p. You play horrible, the hands u posted with the q10hh the other week was shocking and so was the 44 one the other week.

Get it sorted out, doesn't matter how 'good' you are if you can't play withing your limits and steam often you will ALWAYS go bust.

Missing woman's skull ID'd from 1997

Article Text:

By MIKE WIGGINS
The Daily Sentinel

A skull found earlier this month in northwestern Colorado has been identified as that of a Grand Junction woman whose husband was a suspect in her disappearance seven years ago, authorities said Friday.

Sabrina Bebb-Jones was last seen in the city on Sept. 16, 1997, and she was reported missing two days later. Police launched an in-depth investigation and considered her disappearance a homicide. But her husband, Marcus Jones, rebuffed efforts to question him about his missing wife, and detectives hadn't received any leads in the case for years.

A rancher discovered the skull on Oct. 2 while driving cattle near the summit of Douglas Pass in western Garfield County. Investigators brought the skull to Dr. John Bull, a forensic odontologist in Grand Junction who used dental records to identify it.

It's unknown how Bebb-Jones, 31, died. A search party returned to the area where her skull was found to look for more bones but didn't find any.

The Garfield County Sheriff's Department, which is conducting a joint investigation with the Grand Junction Police Department into Bebb-Jones's death, announced the identification in a release Friday but released no other information. Sheriff Lou Vallario and Undersheriff Tim Templon could not be reached for comment Friday afternoon.

Bebb-Jones, who along with her husband owned the Hotel Melrose on Colorado Avenue at the time she disappeared, was last seen in Grand Junction leaving the hotel in a van with her 3-year-old son. A young English woman staying at the hotel reported her missing Sept. 18, 1997, telling police that Jones said his wife left town after the couple argued Sept. 16 at Mesa Mall.

Jones and the 3-year-old left Grand Junction on Sept. 17, telling the English woman they were going to look for Bebb-Jones in Las Vegas, where she was raised and had family.

The next day, Jones, the boy and a woman checked into a motel in Salina, Utah. Motel and restaurant workers identified the woman with Jones as Bebb-Jones.
Six hours after checking in at the Salina motel, Jones and his son checked out and drove to Las Vegas.
On Sept. 21, the child was found alone in a Las Vegas hotel room and was taken into custody by Nevada child protective services. The next day, Jones attempted suicide by shooting himself in the head in another hotel room.

The Hotel Melrose remained closed for most of October while Jones remained in Las Vegas trying to get his son back. He returned to Grand Junction in November to resume running the hotel.

In December, he applied to be a conservator for his wife's possessions, which included a van, the hotel and a house. He was granted conservatorship in May 1998.
Later that summer, Jones sold the Hotel Melrose and moved back to his native England to be with his son and mother.

With the discovery and identification of Bebb-Jones's remains, Grand Junction Police Chief Greg Morrison said detectives have turned over reports and evidence to Garfield County, the lead agency in the investigation.

Morrison said the break in the case should begin providing some closure to Bebb-Jones's family and a direction for investigators in a case that was cold for a long time.

"Now, at least her fate is known to us," he said. "It's no longer a case that's in limbo. We have a case with focus and direction."

Hotel Melrose


A | A | A

Another installment of our threshold to history series.

Take a peek into the historic Melrose Hotel, now known as the Melrose
House.

It just celebrated its 100th birthday and is the last remaining hotel from historic downtown Grand Junction.

Today it's part bed & breakfast, and part hostel, but its history, still haunts it.

11 News reporter Lisa McDivitt explains.

"All the rooms have their own antiques, dressers or furniture of some kind in it. We are going to do a remodeling, and when we do, we'll get it back to how it first was."

For the past two and a half years, Michelle Awbrey and her husband, Jeremy, have managed the Melrose House on Colorado Ave.

"It was constructed in 1908 by James William Ponsford and his two sons. In 1911, the property next to the building was purchased and the hotel was doubled in size after that."

Throughout the years, the hotel has been constantly updated.

"By the late 1920's, every room had running water, which was a very rare commodity in a town of Grand Junction's size."

But despite upgrades to keep up with the times, the hotel still holds on to much of its past.

It remained in the hands of the Ponsford family until 1993, when it was purchased by a married couple – the Bebb–Joneses.

And after the mysterious death of Sabrina Bebb–Jones... the hotel was sold again in 1998 to its current owner, Joya De Pasquale.

Now the hotel has new managers... who, along with the current owner are working to restore the place to its original charm.

"We will be redoing the whole exterior of the hotel. It will still have the same look, but it will be improved to give it its face lift the facelift it really needs and deserves."

Other restorations that have already been done include this candy machine that they brought back to life.

And two old fashioned telephone booths – one on each floor.

The 28 antique–filled rooms, include nightly suits, extended stay rooms and a hostel that's been occupied by visitors from all over the world.

The guests say they appreciate the homey and historic feeling

"It's really cool, actually. Cause you kind of look back in time and kind of think about how it was back then."

But there is one guest who some say has never checked out.

Former hotel owner Sabrina Bebb–Jones, who was murdered in the late 1990's, and whose case is still unsolved... is said to haunt the hotel halls.

"People say that she's still in here, watching over the place, and that's the shadows they see or that's what they hear. And that's our little ghost story."

And while some claim they've heard her and seen her shadow.
Others are more skeptical of spirits, but still willing to believe.

"There might be one or two upstairs, lurking around, so you gotta kind of watch for them. They might pop up every once in a while."

The hotel managers say all the ghosts are friendly...and the stories add to the mystique of the place.

And with the help of a grant from downtown Grand Junction, they plan to restore the building's façade in the next year.
