At just 5’2″, the pound woman admitted that she is one of the shortest firefighters in the Jamaica Fire Brigade, but this makes her no less capable. But it is a challenging job. Another challenge she recalled was going on the scene of a fire at a store in Portmore where looters shoved her out of the way as she tried to douse the flames so they could get inside the blazing building to steal its contents.
Sutherland has a nine-year-old daughter whom she said is very unhappy when she has to work night shifts. However, she tries to make up for it when she is around by spending quality time with her.

Fighting for the chance to serve in the military by Mike Conneen AA Yesterday, the Pentagon unveilled plans to allow female service members to join combat battalions. Last fall, the military ended its “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, allowing gays to serve openly. Now another group of Americans is fighting to wear the uniform.

CBS News Those are the facts of the story, and every day since then, the entire community of Newtown — and all 26 families who lost a child or a loved one — have slowly tried to move forward. But Heslin and Wheeler are part of a small band of Sandy Hook families that feel they have no choice but to look back, to stare down an outlandish myth and the people who spread it.
