first_img…ranch owner flees from policeA cattle farmer who owns a ranch in the backlands of Bloomfield Village, Corentyne, Region 6 fled with his employees on Sunday last (November 19) upon seeing a party of Police approaching; but one of his workers, a 27-year-old labourer of Tain Settlement, Corentyne, has been apprehended by the Police and is currently in custody assisting with investigations.The police say they had gone to the Bloomfield ranch after cattle farmer Nandkishore Tagram of Number 62 Village, Corentyne, Berbice had gone to the Number 62 Police Outpost on Friday last (November 17) and lodged a report that forty (40) head of his cattle, including calves branded with his registered brand — DON14 – had gone missing after they were left to graze outside of his ranch at Number 62 Village Backlands.Acting on information received, Police then proceeded to the Bloomfield ranch in the company of Tagram, but the ranch’s owner prevented the police party from gaining entry to the ranch to check if the animals were there.As such, on the following day, a larger party of police ranks returned to the Bloomfield ranch, owned by a resident of the neighbouring village of Letter Kenny, Corentyne; and on seeing the officers, the owner and some workers fled.According to the police in a statement, “twenty-three (23) of the missing cows, including three (3) calves, eighteen (18) of which bore the victim’s brand number, were recovered at the ranch.”The owner of the Bloomfield ranch is currently being sought by the police.last_img read more

Teen injured in fire at juvenile hall

first_imgThe fire did an estimated $15,000 damage. SYLMAR – A teen was injured today after a fire broke out at a juvenile detention center, fire officials said. The blaze, which investigators believe was intentionally set, was reported at 12:50 p.m. and damaged a one-story building at the Barry J. Nidorf Juvenile Hall at 16350 Filbert Street, said Brian Humphrey, a Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman. About 41 firefighters doused the flames – contained to a dorm room – within 30 minutes. The building did not have an emergency sprinkler system. A juvenile ward was rescued from the room, and was in critical but stable condition at a local hospital, Humphrey said. Four staff members were treated for smoke inhalation. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

New car to make 4-peat a challenge

first_imgNot that talent won’t factor in. Bourdais has plenty. “We do not know who is going to be strong yet,” Bourdais said Thursday in between test runs at Laguna Seca. “It’s too early to say. Especially since we have had a pretty rough start with bad weather and reliability issues. “It’s definitely hard to know who is going to be strong for the first two races of the season. Our team put in enough hours and hopefully, it is going to be rewarded. But we don’t have the safety of mind, to say, ‘Hey, we’ve got the car that’s won the last three straight championships.’ The series opener is April 8 in Las Vegas. It continues April 15 in Long Beach. Things have not gone spectacularly during testing. In late January at Sebring International Raceway in Florida, it rained half the time. During testing in the middle of February in Houston, it was worse. “It Houston, it rained just horribly throughout the test,” driver Paul Tracy said. The consensus was, out of four days combined at Sebring and Houston, drivers got about 1 1/2 days of dry testing. SALINAS – Champ Car’s new ride could bring a new series champion. Frenchman Sebastien Bourdais is coming back to try and become the first driver to win four consecutive series titles. But with the arrival of the new vehicle that includes paddle shifters, a new chassis and a new exhaust system, the playing field has instantly become more even. center_img Not ideal conditions for the testing of a new vehicle. Drivers having difficulty downshifting with the new paddle shifters – located on the backside of the steering wheel – were among the complaints. There appears to be no question that the new vehicle is going to make it more difficult for Bourdais to four-peat. Almost everything on the car, except for the engine, is new. “The most important thing about the new car is it is specifically designed for the kind of races that we’ve got, like Long Beach,” said Kevin Kalkhoven, series co-owner and tri-owner of Team PKV Racing. “And it’s going to be an opportunity for all the teams to start off on the same footing. New additionBourdais races for the popular Newman/Haas Racing team, which, as of Thursday, became Newman/Haas/Lanigan. It was announced that Mike Lanigan had become partners with actor Paul Newman and Carl Haas, who started Newman/Haas in 1982. Newman, looking good at 82, walked into the media room with a twinkle in his eye. He sat at the dais, then told reporters why he and Haas decided to add Lanigan. What about Rahal? Newman/Haas/Lanigan, it appears, is on the verge of formally announcing that Graham Rahal will be its second driver. Newman seemed perplexed about not being able to confirm that Thursday. “Apparently, lawyers have to eat, too,” Newman said. “As far as I’m concerned, it was a done deal two weeks ago.” Rahal, a senior in high school, is 18. He took second place at the Atlantic Series last year and now has moved up to Champ Car. His father, Bobby Rahal, finished second four times at Long Beach and won several series titles. Cali. in the house Pacific Coast Motorsports of Oxnard is the only Champ Car team from California. It formally competed in Gramd Am but has moved up to Champ Car. The new team unveiled its two cars Thursday and also introduced its first Champ Car drivers in the names of rookies Alex Figge and Ryan Dalziel. Figge, of Colorado, and Dalziel, of Scotland, are former Grand Am and Atlantic Car racers. “To think that we could actually show up here and put a ‘W’ on the charts would be a pretty impressive thing, I think,” said team director Tyler Tadevic said. “We’re just glad to be here and to be perfectly honest, this is a long-term plan and to have our name said in the same sentences as Newman-Haas and Forsythe, it’s just a dream come true.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Judge issues tentative ruling dismissing suit against KABC radio, host

first_imgMcIntyre exploited a combination of anti-immigration sentiment and the nation’s fear of Islamic terrorists to “create a racist fury against Latino school children, teachers, administrators and staff at the school,” according to the lawsuit. Among other remarks to his listeners, McIntyre said “Is this a reconquista school?”; “This school is ranked the lowest of the low in the LAUSD and in the state of California”; and “Aztecs butchered and ate Spanish invaders. I wonder if they’re teaching that at ASDP,” according to the lawsuit. McIntyre said Aguilar’s job was to “keep his school, his madrasa school, open so they can train the next generation of Aztec revolutionaries,” according to the lawsuit. The radio host also used “code words” aimed at a target audience to rile up listeners and create a backlash against the school and Aguilar, the plaintiffs allege. As a result, they say, the school received many threats of violence, including a bomb threat that caused an evacuation of the campus. In a declaration submitted to the court on Oct. 15, McIntyre said he found the bomb threat against the school deplorable and offered $1,000 of his own money as a reward for bringing the perpetrator to justice. “That offer remains standing today,” McIntyre’s declaration states. McIntyre also denied his use of the word “madrasa” was meant to insinuate that the school was teaching students jihadist philosophy or instructing them how they could become revolutionaries. Although Aguilar appeared on other KABC radio shows, he refused to be interviewed by McIntyre, according to the broadcaster. Meanwhile, a man who aimed his car at KABC radio reporter Sandy Wells and snatched the newsman’s audiotape as he tried to interview parents and others outside the school on June 1, 2006, was sentenced in May to three years probation. Ramon Flores also was ordered to pay $174 to Wells — who jumped out of the way of the speeding sedan and escaped injury — and complete 400 hours of service on a Caltrans crew. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! A judge today tentatively dismissed a lawsuit brought by a Los Angeles charter campus against KABC-AM and its morning host, alleging he led an on-air, racist campaign against the school that led to a bomb scare. Academia Semillas Del Pueblo and its principal director of operations, Marcos Aguilar, filed the lawsuit May 17 in Los Angeles Superior Court, alleging slander and civil rights violations. Superior Court Judge Ralph W. Dau stated in a written ruling that the remarks made by “McIntyre in the Morning” host Doug McIntyre were opinion and not a “command to imminent violence or other lawless action.” After hearing arguments this morning from the attorneys concerning his ruling, Dau said he was taking the case under submission. He did not give a date for a final ruling. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREStriving toward a more perfect me: Doug McIntyre Aguilar attended the hearing, but McIntyre, whose program airs from 5-9 a.m. daily, was not present. Outside the courtroom, Daniel J. Bramzon, a lawyer for Aguilar and the school, contended that regardless of the final decision, Aguilar has made “a David and Goliath stand against hate speech.” James J. Moneer, another attorney for Aguilar and the school, argued the statute being used by the radio station and McIntyre to try and get the suit thrown out was never intended to protect the statements made by the veteran broadcaster. However, Seth D. Berlin, a lawyer for the station and McIntyre, said McIntyre’s show is not a hard-news broadcast, but one in which he freely gives his opinions on social issues of the day. Often those views are expressed through satire and rhetorical flourish, he told the judge. The lawsuit alleges McIntyre began criticizing various aspects of the school in May 2006, including its funding, curriculum, demographics, administrators and educational statistics, all in order to increase his show’s ratings. last_img read more

In 1987, the new school opened in Windyhall and Eileen and her students enjoyed using the brand new gym.Mrs Mary McGrath who retired from Errigal College in 2007, told the audience of her happy memories of working with Eileen. She recalls that Eileen was always very committed in every aspect of her work, ranging from teaching P.E. to her leadership in the production and updating of Errigal College’s various policy statements. Mrs Cathy Rafferty, Irish teacher agreed with Mrs McGrath’s words. She also spoke highly of another of Eileen’s qualities: “Eileen wasn’t just a colleague; she was an advisor. She always spoke from the heart”.Speaking on behalf of the Co. Donegal E.T.B., Dr Martin Gormley spoke highly of Eileen’s contribution to the E.T.B. students and staff over the years.

Eileen saw an opportunity to combine Physical Education and entertainment, and trained her students to put on breath-taking gymnastic displays.Eileen as chairperson of the Errigal College Extra-Curricular Committee was responsible for organising and coordinating all sporting and extra-curricular activities within the College. The commitment and energy that Eileen brought to her job was reflected in the success of Errigal College in the annual Co. Donegal Track and Field Championships. School Principal, Mr Charlie Cannon spoke very highly of her chairmanship: “Eileen is always very busy but she always has time for extra-curricular meetings and activities. She always gives 100% and her commitment and positivity are contagious. She loves the school and the students and always wants to do her best. This has made her a perfect role model for the younger staff”.In 1997, Errigal College introduced a Post Leaving Cert course in Sports and Recreation Studies. Eileen was the coordinator of this programme and it is still running today. It has gone from strength to strength, giving graduates excellent career prospects. Many graduates have gone on to complete Degrees and Masters Degrees.Eileen’s career took a new direction in 2007 when she became Errigal College’s first Home School Community Liaison teacher. Her duties as H.S.C.L. were “to extend the friendly face of the school and build relationships with parents”. She explained that “the ultimate purpose is to maximise the child’s involvement and their retention in the education system”.Errigal College Prin.

She has worked closely with parents and helped them to develop their skills and potential. She did this by organising various courses in Cookery, Maths for Parents, Parenting Courses, Restorative Practices, Walking Groups, Coffee Mornings… and so much more thanks to Eileen’s 100% effort”.The READ LK programme was initiated in Errigal College in 2012. The aim of this project is to get as many people as possible to be reading the same book at the same time. Eileen was one of the leaders of this wonderful project and it has grown and grown. It is now known as READ DL. In 2014 she was one of the team leaders who accepted an award from the E.T.B. 2014/’15 was Eileen’s final year in Errigal College. However, instead of relaxing and winding down towards retirement, Eileen rolled up her sleeves and worked even harder.She was one of the small team who produced the ‘Errigal College – 100 Years Celebration’ centenary book. She spent long hours researching the school’s history and interviewing many people, before sitting down and writing excellent articles.The editor of the book explains “Eileen was literally an inspiration to the rest of us. Her love for Errigal College meant that she wanted to produce an excellent book. I’m glad to say that her hard work has paid off”. This wonderful book is available in many shops around Letterkenny, and is also available in the school office.In her role as Home School Community Liaison person, Eileen built many bridges between staff, students, parents and the local community. The invaluable network of relationships of parents and community are her parting gift to Errigal College. And they are only part of her legacy. She has contributed to the education and development of thousands of young people. Mr Cannon emphasised how much she would be missed and wished Eileen a happy and well-deserved retirement.TEARS AND EMOTION AS EILEEN RETIRES FROM ERRIGAL COLLEGE AFTER ALMOST 40 YEARS was last modified: September 3rd, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Eileen Maguireerrigal collegeretirementlast_img read more
