Taylor and Spectra reach golf course deal

first_imgThe project has been in the works since 2006 and was completed in May, 2010.The pipeline from the plant to the golf course is just under 5 km in length. He says when the plan was first considered, the water was tested through the Canadian Water Quality Guidelines for Irrigation Water and it was found to exceed those standards.The golf course requires a significant amount of water and the water from the plant will be used to supplement rain water and the water they would have normally gotten from the Peace River, Cross added.[asset|aid=3009|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=02d2538063ee6f5102ffb9d6309e52da-Cross – Golf Course_1_Pub.mp3] The MLA for Peace River North, Pat Pimm, says the project is a first-class innovation.Advertisement Photo: Representatives from the province, the District of Taylor and Spectra Energy support a plan to use effluent from the McMahon Plant for the Lone Wolf golf course./ Kimberley MolinaSpectra Energy and the Lone Wolf Golf Club have teamed up to provide water for the Club’s irrigation.- Advertisement -The new water source means that the golf course will be using water from the Spectra plant in Taylor that is used for cooling the machinery.The water goes through a secondary effluent system and would normally be returned to the river but is instead diverted to the golf course, says Justin Anderson, operations team leader at the McMahon Gas Plant. He added that the water comes very close to meeting drinking water standards.This summer, the District of Taylor has already had several water restrictions in effect, so the benefits of this plan allow the golf course to use recycled water instead of taking potable water from the river.The golf course will have the ability to get more than 45 million litres of water per year, says Glenn Cross, the green superintendent of the Lone Wolf Golf Club.Advertisementlast_img read more

Cherry pickin’s arrived in valley

first_imgThe parade runs along 90th Street West, beginning at Leona School on Leona Avenue and heading north to Elizabeth Lake Road and then east to the Leona Valley Community Building. The parade theme is “Hip-Hip Hooray, It’s Cherry Day,” submitted by Hanna Clark, who will ride in the parade as junior grand marshal. Grand marshals will be longtime Leona Valley residents Tom and Judy Brundage. The Cherry Festival Craft Fair follows immediately after the parade at the community building, 8367 Elizabeth Lake Road. Besides country-style creations by local artisans, the fair will feature live music, a cherry pie-eating contest, games and 4-H Club equestrian events. Besides Shafer’s Villa Del Sol on Elizabeth Lake Road at Godde Hill Road, Sky Meadows Orchard on Elizabeth Lake Road west of 90th Street West is also expected to be open Saturday, Beeler said. Some orchard owners have scheduled June 17 openings, and others are waiting to see how their fruit ripens, Beeler said. Blessed with an altitude and climate suited for cherries, Leona Valley for decades has been home to cherry ranches that open their gates each spring so visitors can enjoy the country atmosphere and pick the fruit themselves. Visitors come from all over Southern California, and even from Japan and Europe. Beeler runs the valley’s oldest orchard, Hobart’s, whose oldest trees were planted in 1959. chuck.bostwick@dailynews.com (661) 267-5742160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The cherries have to have 71 days from bloom to ripe fruit,” Beeler said. Despite the lateness, this year’s crop is a bumper one, she added. The orchards avoided the spring frosts that in previous years have damaged the blossoms or fruit. “They have tons and tons of cherries,” Beeler said. The town’s annual Cherry Parade, which was scheduled months before growers knew the crop would be late, will be 11 a.m. Saturday. LEONA VALLEY – Mother Nature has cooperated – a little bit, anyway – ripening enough cherries for some Leona Valley orchards to open for Saturday’s Cherry Parade and Festival. Most of the town’s two dozen “u-pick” orchards will open in late June, because cool and rainy weather in March and April delayed the cherry blossoms, but at least two will be open by Saturday. “The serious pickers will be standing in line,” said Gary Shafer, whose 4,000-tree Villa Del Sol orchard includes 1,000 of the Brooks variety that ripen earlier than the Bings and Raniers predominant among Leona Valley orchards. Orchards’ opening dates will be reported on the growers association telephone hotline at (661) 266-7116. last_img read more

Neighbours end long-running bitter dispute over hedge

first_imgA bitter feud between elderly neighbours over a hedge has ended after a court heard one of them is now seriously ill.Pensioners Frank McManus and his wife Margaret appeared at Letterkenny District Court in connection with the row which has lasted a number of years. McManus and neighbour John Ferry appeared in court several times arising out of the row at their homes at Fernhill, Letterkenny.During the dispute allegations of threats to kill pets, damage property and other claims have been made.Mr McManus was charged with assault and causing criminal damage while his wife was charged with criminal damage.CCTV footage of the incidents between the neighbours was previously viewed by Judge Paul Kelly.It was claimed in court that the origins of the row happened after the McManus’ built a wall and allowed ivy and other shrubs to grow over it.Solicitor for the McManus’, Mr Frank Dorrian, said his clients had never been in trouble outside of this dispute and were very upstanding citizens and decent people.He said when they built the wall, they built it a foot inside their own boundary in the belief that they could grow ivy and shrubbery on it.The court heard that problems began when the couple built the wall believing this entitled them to the rights on the other side of the wall too.Since the wall was built the neighbours have appeared in court on several occasions as the feud rumbled on.Solicitor Dorrian said that his clients had told him that they would not be engaging in their “trivial behaviour” again as Mr McManus’ health had taken a turn for the worse.H said “Frank McManus has received a diagnosis. He has a very reduced physical condition. There is no way he is in a position to engage in any more conflict.“This diagnosis has also put this carry on in context for both of them.“It is a very trivial matter in comparison with the enormousdifficulties which now exist within their house.”Judge Kelly applied the Probation Act to Mrs McManus on a charge of causing criminal damage to Mr Kelly’s plants on September 27th, 2016.Frank McManus was ordered to keep the peace and be of good behaviour for one year and was fined €150 for criminal damage.Neighbours end long-running bitter dispute over hedge was last modified: April 11th, 2018 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:courtFernhillhedgeletterkennyNEIGHBOURSrowlast_img read more

HURLING: ST EUNAN’S SECURE SENIOR CHAMPIONSHIP WIN OVER SETANTA

first_imgDonegal Senior Hurling ChampionshipSetanta 0-7St. Eunan’s 1-10 St. Eunan’s scored a significant win in the Donegal SHC over last year’s finalists Setanta at the Crossroads. Given the very wet conditions from the outset, scores were always going to be at a premium. The first half was a low scoring affair. An early Colm Breathnach free for the away team was cancelled out by two strikes from Kevin Campbell and Bernard O’Brien. A free on 17 minutes and a fine point from play from Seán McVeigh edged St. Eunan’s in front, but a late 65 by Campbell left the teams level at half-time, 0-3 each. On the restart McVeigh and Campbell exchanged points before a long range free by Campbell on 39 minutes gave Setanta the lead. Playing with the wind advantage, however, St. Eunan’s gradually took control. With Conor O’Donnell, Adie Gaffey, Colm Flood and Seán McVeigh dominating affairs around the middle of the field there was constant pressure on the home defence, where Shane Gallen and Mark Callaghan were outstanding. Points from Conor McVeigh, Sean McVeigh and a Eugene Organ free put the visitors two points in front with ten minutes left. A Campbell free on 52 minutes was cancelled out by the game’s standout performer Conor O’Donnell, who won a puck out on his own half back line and finished off the move after an exchange of passes. The home team kept coming back and another Campbell free set up a tense finish. In the last three minutes, two further McVeigh frees opened up a three point gap. The Letterkenny team finally sealed victory with a goal in the final moments, when a Conor Parke shot found the roof of the net.Both teams go forward to the next match in the SHC round robin, with Setanta away to Burt and St. Eunan’s facing Mac Cumhaills. Setanta: Dean McDevitt, Brendan Tourish, Simon McMenamin, Mark Callaghan, Michael McGhee, Shane Gallen, Justin Browne, Richard Kee, Callum Waide, Colm Melaugh, Kevin Campbell (0-6, 0-5 frees), Bernard Lafferty, Bernard O’Brien (0-1), Niall Ewing, Conor Gallen.

Hiring up after lull

first_img In October, employers added just 44,000 jobs, even fewer than the government reported a month ago. In September – the month that bore the brunt of Katrina, the most costly natural disaster in U.S. history – payrolls grew by 17,000, according to revised figures. While that was an improvement from the loss of 8,000 jobs previously reported, it still marked the weakest job growth in two years. The rebound in jobs follows other good economic news of late. A government report earlier this week showed that the economy grew at a robust 4.3 percent pace in the third quarter, its best performance in more than a year, despite the hurricanes. November’s employment gains were pretty broad-based. Construction jobs went up, partly reflecting hurricane rebuilding and cleanup. Retail, leisure and hospitality, education and health services, financial activities and even manufacturing were among those boosting jobs. Workers’ average hourly earnings increased to $16.32 in November, up 3.2 percent from the same month last year. That was the biggest rise since March 2003. When inflation is factored in, though, “workers are basically treading water” in terms of wage gains, said Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Economy.com. To keep inflation under control, the Fed has raised interest rates 12 times since June 2004. Another rate increase is expected Dec. 13. On Wall Street, the Dow Jones industrials closed down 35.06 points, as some investors worried that the Fed might push rates higher than had been anticipated. While Republicans hailed November’s job growth, Democrats pointed out that some workers and job seekers are still struggling. The unemployment rate for blacks jumped to 10.6 percent in November. That was up from 9.1 percent in October and was the highest jobless rate since February. “The possibility of obtaining a job and developing economic security remains out of reach for too many African-Americans and this negatively impacts every aspect of life,” said Rep. Melvin Watt, D-N.C., chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus. The unemployment rate for Hispanics rose to 6 percent in November, the highest since September. In an encouraging sign for job seekers overall, the average time that the unemployed spent searching for work in November was 17.7 weeks. That was down from an average of 18.1 weeks in October and was the best showing since July. Katrina slammed into the Gulf Coast in late August; Rita followed in late September. Those storms, which battered crucial oil and gas facilities, choked off commerce and destroyed businesses, and sent energy prices skyward. Wilma hit in late October. “The job market has clearly recovered from the setbacks and dislocations caused by the series of hurricanes,” said Stuart Hoffman, chief economist at PNC Financial Services Group. He was confident good job growth would be maintained in coming months. “We are back on track,” he said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! WASHINGTON – The nation’s businesses cranked up hiring in November after a two-month lull, a sign the labor market is back in the groove as the ill effects of the Gulf Coast hurricanes fade. Employers expanded payrolls by 215,000 jobs last month, the most since July. The unemployment rate held steady at 5 percent. The Labor Department’s fresh snapshot of the jobs situation, released Friday, suggested that employers are in a better hiring mood now that energy prices have retreated from record highs and disruptions to commerce from the hurricanes are easing. For President George W. Bush – confronted with some of the lowest job approval ratings of his presidency – recently improving economic news hasn’t helped his standing with the public. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals Seeking to change that, Bush embraced Friday’s employment report. “We have every reason to be optimistic about our economic future,” he said. “Our economic horizon is as bright as it’s been in a long time.” Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan and his colleagues, at their Nov. 1 meeting, maintained that the hurricanes would only temporarily crimp hiring. The employment report buttressed that notion. Greenspan, in remarks Friday, said despite the hurricanes that “economic activity appears to be expanding at a reasonably good pace as we head into 2006.” The hiring pickup came after two grim months for job seekers. “There’s no question that business confidence was paralyzed right after the hurricanes,” said Brian Bethune, economist at Global Insight. “Business leaders were looking at the situation and were a little bit uncertain how it was going to be resolved. So they put hiring plans on hold. Now that the proverbial smoke has cleared, they are saying: Let’s hire.” last_img read more
