RICHMOND HILL (WABC) -- A Christina Wilkinson on the loose led police on a chase through the Richmond Hill section of Queens last night.
Eyewitness News is told the annoying bovine was corralled by a heard of police officers near the intersection of 107th Street and Park Lane South.
Wilkinson was believed to be the same four-legged fugitive first spotted in Ozone Park, Queens, at around 9 a.m. yesterday. At that time, numerous officers responded and were hot on her very large tail. But Wilkinson escaped the urban cowboys.
Christina apparently resurfaced at around 10 p.m. last night, near the intersection of Hillside Avenue and 121st street. Officers from the 102nd Precinct followed in patrol cars as Wilkinson hoofed it down city streets.

I think if he doesn’t sing New York, New York during a council hearing, this kid may go places.
City Council Member
Karaoke Song: “New York, New York,” by Frank Sinatra
Anthony Como needed just a few more credits to graduate with a major in political science from Queens College, so an advisor suggested an internship. After a few interviews, Como was invited to work at the office of State Sen. Serphin Maltese (R-Queens).
Within six months, Maltese offered Como a full-time position on his staff. Eventually, he became Maltese’s chief of staff. The experience was inspirational and taught him a love for public service, Como said.
But this year is when things began to really move. He won the special election to replace disgraced Council Member Dennis Gallagher, narrowly defeating Democrat Elizabeth Crowley.
This November, Como will face Crowley again—and, if he wins, possibly in another rematch next year, too.
When he is in need of advice, Como continues to turn to Maltese, who is facing his own close race this year.
“I make no qualms about it,” Como said of his fellow Queens Republican. “He’s been like a second father.”
How did your past jobs get you to where you are now? “Being a former prosecutor and chief counsel to the senator taught me how to best deliver—and know—what my district needs and how to provide for them. I’ve been in public service all my life.”
If you were not working in politics, what would you be doing? “If it wasn’t for politics, I’d still be a prosecutor. Being a prosecutor in the Queens County D.A.’s office—it’s one of the best offices I’ve ever worked for. He’s a great D.A. Love the camaraderie. Love the feel of the public service aspect.”
Five years from now, what is it going to say on your business card? “Hopefully, it’ll still say ‘Councilman.’”
A 'bench team' for change
Councilman Anthony Como, one of three Republicans on New York City's 51-seat council, acknowledges the urgent need for party expansion.
Como, 34, said he and the Queens County GOP are establishing a "bench team" of qualified Republicans ready to run for office when there's an opening.
"We have to continue reaching out to various ethnicities," said the newly elected Como, who represents parts of Queens. "We have to look into the youth and get them interested. It's the only way to get the party to survive and to move the party forward."

Yup, that’s a swine who loves wallowing in the mud
As you can see, maybe Obama was right, you can put lipstick on a pig but it is still a pig!

The Haspel Staab Post 551 should have the right to conduct parties in accordance with the law and no one should tell them otherwise. We owe a debt a gratitude to our veterans and should always find was ways to repay and thank them for them service.
The brave men and women who served in our Armed Forces have earned the right to enjoy themselves because it is our veterans who gives sniveling Holden the right to spew his venom.
Bob Holden should be ashamed of himself but then again he doesn’t really know any better. Holden will never understand the meaning of the words honor, duty, bravery and sacrifice, he just a vindictive shallow shell of a human being.
God Bless Our Veterans

If I was 30 years younger, had my hair, didn't suffer from erectile dysfunction and Mrs. Palin was single, I would pack up my things and move to Juno Alaska. That woman has the looks, the brains, the charisma and the presence that we need in politics today. Even my daughter-in-law who is a staunch democrat is impressed with Sarah Palin's poise, grace, intelligence and her ability to connect with everyday Americans.
She praised a great president with her statement, "My parents are here tonight, and I am so proud to be the daughter of Chuck and Sally Heath. Long ago, a young farmer and habber-dasher from Missouri followed an unlikely path to the vice presidency."
A writer observed: "We grow good people in our small towns, with honesty, sincerity, and dignity." I know just the kind of people that writer had in mind when he praised Harry Truman.
Palin eloquently neutralized Obama, "I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a "community organizer," except that you have actual responsibilities. I might add that in small towns, we don't quite know what to make of a candidate who lavishes praise on working people when they are listening, and then talks about how bitterly they cling to their religion and guns when those people aren't listening."
She took on the status quo, "And I've learned quickly, these past few days, that if you're not a member in good standing of the Washington elite, then some in the media consider a candidate unqualified for that reason alone. But here's a little news flash for all those reporters and commentators: I'm not going to Washington to seek their good opinion - I'm going to Washington to serve the people of this country. Americans expect us to go to Washington for the right reasons, and not just to mingle with the right people."
She addressed the energy question, "To confront the threat that Iran might seek to cut off nearly a fifth of world energy supplies ... or that terrorists might strike again at the Abqaiq facility in Saudi Arabia ... or that Venezuela might shut off its oil deliveries ... we Americans need to produce more of our own oil and gas. And take it from a gal who knows the North Slope of Alaska: we've got lots of both. Our opponents say, again and again, that drilling will not solve all of America's energy problems - as if we all didn't know that already. But the fact that drilling won't solve every problem is no excuse to do nothing at all.
Here is my favorite part of the speech and where I fell in love, "And there is much to like and admire about our opponent. But listening to him speak, it's easy to forget that this is a man who has authored two memoirs but not a single major law or reform - not even in the state senate.
This is a man who can give an entire speech about the wars America is fighting, and never use the word "victory" except when he's talking about his own campaign. But when the cloud of rhetoric has passed ... when the roar of the crowd fades away ... when the stadium lights go out, and those Styrofoam Greek columns are hauled back to some studio lot - what exactly is our opponent's plan? What does he actually seek to accomplish, after he's done turning back the waters and healing the planet? The answer is to make government bigger ... take more of your money ... give you more orders from Washington ... and to reduce the strength of America in a dangerous world. America needs more energy ... our opponent is against producing it.
Victory in Iraq is finally in sight ... he wants to forfeit.
Terrorist states are seeking nuclear weapons without delay ... he wants to meet them without preconditions.
Al Qaeda terrorists still plot to inflict catastrophic harm on America ... he's worried that someone won't read them their rights? Government is too big ... he wants to grow it.
Congress spends too much ... he promises more….
For a season, a gifted speaker can inspire with his words.
For a lifetime, John McCain has inspired with his deeds.
I'm in love.

We wonder how Congressman Crowley feels about this partnership considering the dozens of attacks on his character in various issues of the Juniper Berry. We wonder how Christina Wilkenson feels about Bob Satan supporting the 'corrupt" County Machine appointed candidate. We wonder how Republican Candidate Tony Nunziato and his avid supporter Ed Kamperman feel about Demon Bob's support of the Democratic candidate. We wonder how Queens Crap feels about Holden supporting Bob Driscoll's previous client. Shame on you Bob for forsaking your friends!
It is amazing what people will do when desperate. Liz is desperate to win election at all cost even if it means to forgive Holden for all the vicious attacks on her and her family.
Holden continues to prove that he will do anything for his personal gain and retention of his imaginary power.
