New Indiana Jones-Style Bar-And-Grill At Disney World

A restaurant will be opening this fall with the Downtown Disney expansion to Disney Springs – Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar.

The new restaurant will be aviation-themed.  Many will recognize the name Jock Lindsey as the pilot from the ever popular (and now Disney-owned) Indiana Jones films.

The restaurant will be found near Lake Buena Vista between Paradiso 37 and the Boathouse and will be a Disney operated restaurant, writes  It is set to open later this year.

Some fans on Twitter were confused about the focus of the bar’s theme, writes

People were wondering who exactly was Jock Lindsey, writes   He wasn’t as recognizable as other characters from the film series such as Sean Connery’s portrayal of Indiana Jones’ father, or Jonathan Ke Quan’s character of Wan “Short Round” Li.

Here’s some background on Jock Lindsey thanks to an Indiana Jones wikia (because sometimes that is as deep as you can get with information on fictional characters):

Jock Lindsey is the pilot and friend of Dr. Henry “Indiana” Jones Jr. Lindsey makes his debut in Raiders of the Lost Ark as the pilot who repeatedly gets Indiana Jones up and out of some difficult situations.

According to his wikia, Lindsey is a former stunt pilot who has left that business to freelance for Indiana Jones, taking him to the locations of his archeological sites and impending trouble.

The new bar will help Disney Springs – and essentially Orlando, Florida – attract more visitors to Central Florida, writes

Texas Police Patrol Park On Segway

Kamecha Johnston reported for duty in the evening, in the final hour before dusk.

She maneuvered a Segway around the twists and turns of Armstrong Park in Duncanville, Texas.  In nearly three months, she’s only fallen off the electric vehicle once.

In December, Johnston began work as the city’s first park ranger. A Duncanville patrol officer for about seven years, she volunteered for the city’s new job.

Now, Duncanville’s woods and green spaces are her domain. She visits all 17 parks every weeknight from 7:30 p.m. to 4 a.m.

“I wanted to make sure that my family, citizens and visitors have a safe environment at the parks,” said Johnston, who was a police officer and paramedic in the U.S. Army for eight years. “It was just something I wanted to do. [Other officers] made fun of me, saying I was going to get hit with a picnic basket and stuff like that. I said I’d do it anyway.”

As of Feb. 17, Johnston has written 83 citations and 11 incident reports and made five arrests in the parks. Typical incident reports could include vandalism and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The park ranger position is part of a Parks and Recreation Advisory Board initiative. The City Council allocated $63,141 in its budget for the job.

“[The park board] saw this as a positive step to make the parks safe for the community,” said Bart Stevenson, parks and recreation director. “I’m not aware of any specific issues. … They were being proactive.”

Before the park ranger job, there were calls about drugs and people in the parks after midnight, Johnston said. Park closing times range from 10 to 11:30 p.m.

She said there is vandalism in the parks and secluded areas on trails that patrol cars can’t monitor. Once, she was able to intercede after hearing claims of a man’s plan to commit suicide in a park.

When she’s on duty, she walks or rides the Segway down every path. At Armstrong, she checks the bathrooms and Kidsville Playground — a wooden structure that looks like a castle from a fairytale — for squatters.

“What I’m excited about is now that [Johnston] is in the park, it frees up an officer to do other things since she’s able to concentrate on the parks and what’s happening there,” Police Chief Robert Brown Jr. said.

Cleveland Boy With Fake Gun Dies

According to the AP, a 12-year-old boy brandishing what turned out to be a replica gun died Sunday after he was shot by a Cleveland police officer responding to a 911 call about a person waving a gun in a park.

Deputy Chief Ed Tomba said the officer fired twice after the boy pulled the fake weapon — which was lacking the orange safety indicator usually on the muzzle — from his waistband.

The boy did not make any verbal threats toward the officer or point the gun, but reached into his waistband and grabbed it after being told to raise his hands, Tomba said.

“That’s when the officer fired,” he said.

Police said the weapon was an “airsoft” type replica gun that resembled a semi-automatic pistol. The orange safety indicator had been removed, police said.
