first_imgAfter a scoreless third-period and first overtime period, Nelson got the chance they needed with a Columbia Valley defenceman fell at the visitor’s blueline.Piva jumped on the loose puck before roofing a shot over the shoulder of Rockies goalie Will McCreight.“I guess it was a little bit of luck,” Piva said. “When I saw he fell I got pretty excited. . .. I saw (Rockies goalie McCreight) cheating to the left side so then the top corner was open.”Dale Howell scored both goals for Nelson while Nicholas Wihak and Quinn Sobus replied for the Rockies.Nelson finished the game out shooting Columbia Valley 35-16.Ben Kelsch earned the win in goal for the Leafs.Nelson lost the services of sniper Andy Fitzpatrick in the second period after the Calgary native was involved in a dust up with Davin Burton to Columbia Valley.Both players were handed fighting majors and game misconducts.Friday in Fruitvale, Beaver Valley jumped to a 3-0 lead before rolling to a 4-2 victory.Tyler Hartman scored twice for the Hawks while Dylan Heppler and Aiden Browell added singles.Piva and Howell replied for the Leafs, out shot 35-26 in the contest.LEAF NOTES: The win allows Nelson to keep pace with the Nitehawks.

Jose must regret beating Spurs to Willian in 2013 as Chelsea ace punishes old boss

YMCA remains a local shelter

first_img(909) 483-9336160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The YMCA of Pomona Valley, which has served as a temporary homeless shelter for about a week, will continue to provide indigent people a place to stay overnight until March 15. The Winter Shelter Program, which runs from Dec. 1 to March 15 annually, had operated for years out of the Pomona Armory on Park Avenue. The armory is closing because the California National Guard unit based there has been assigned to Ontario. Last week, as reports circulated that funding for hotel vouchers as an alternative ti staying at the Armory was close to running out, a group of homeless people sought assistance, said Gilbert Saldate, a board member for the Coalition to End Hunger and Homelessness. On Thursday, Saldate was among a group of 30 , advocates for the homeless and county agency representatives who met at the El Monte office of Los Angeles County Supervisor Gloria Molina to address the matter. In that meeting, representatives of the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority said about $40,000 is still available, which, with the help of the YMCA, is enough to continue the program this season, Saldate said. Angie Castro, Molina’s senior deputy, said during December between 80 and 100 individuals sought shelter. During the same month, 30 families sought shelter assistance, Castro said. church members m_rodriguez@dailybulletin.com last_img read more

Once-hidden scenes from WWII give focus to Burns’ `The War’

first_imgI watched Ken Burns’ seven-night “The War” on PBS in the company of ghosts. Burns, who did such a fantastic job with the Civil War, baseball, jazz and the Brooklyn Bridge, spent six years on a 14-hour World War II documentary whose only problem was brevity. Still, PBS averaged 18 million viewers, which is a lot for them but nothing at all in a nation of 300 million – a nation, claims a recent U.S. Department of Education study, where half of our high school students believe that the United States joined Germany to fight the Soviet Union in World War II. I’m sensitive to this collective memory loss because I was raised in post-war America on the grim combat footage that fleshed out shows like “The Big Picture” and “Victory At Sea.” Which is to say that I’d already seen most of the images Burns used to render, as much as it can be, a war fought across an entire globe. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREChargers go winless in AFC West with season-ending loss in Kansas CityWhat I had never seen was what the government kept hidden even as that war bled into the next war and the next war and the next. I’m speaking of the dead. In my childhood, the World War II oeuvre featured only dead Germans and Japanese. Maybe for the first time, Burns showed dead Americans, our handsome young men lying still on stretchers, our sailors dropping from beneath flags into the sea, our boys frozen in death. In all, 292,131 Americans died in battle along with an unsung 9,512 merchant mariners. Still, even this horrific number made up only 2 percent of 25 million allies who died in combat and even a smaller fraction of the estimated 72 million who perished in a war spun out of control. Still, it is our dead that speak to us most eloquently. Burns knew this when he told his story through the lives of people from small-town America, from an America so isolated from the world’s horrors as to be unrecognizable. Kurt Vonnegut, the American writer who lived through the fire bombing of Dresden as a POW, said that he hated the Germans and Japanese, not for the war but because they turned us into militarists. “The War” turned out to be militarism run wild, an unadorned series of mass slaughters that annihilated the line between good and evil. It is a total blood immersion that brings to mind a line from the Rolling Stones’ “Sympathy For The Devil”: “I rode a tank in the general’s ranks when the blitzkrieg raged and the violence stank!” I met hundreds of men who survived that violence. Writing about these veterans was always gratifying and familiar. That’s because my childhood was shaped by them, by those shell-shattered boys staring out a thousand miles from foxholes, bunkers and beachheads in the Burns’ documentary. I wrote so many stories about so many survivors of this mammoth conflict that one colleague began calling me “our World War II correspondent.” I never did write it all down, of course, couldn’t write it all down. Still, I am sorry for missing the things that went unasked as a reporter and – long ago – when I was young and had no idea of the price paid by men like Ralph Campaloupa. Ralph was our Scoutmaster, an endlessly patient guy who would skillfully eat on camping trips with a killing knife that he carried on a web belt. I was 10 when I asked him – a common enough question at the time – where he served in the war. “North Africa, Italy, D-Day, all the way into Germany,” he replied, staring into the fire. I remember his words because I knew instantly that he was the real deal. I also knew that I wasn’t invited to ask any more of a man who had survived that bloody sweep of history. There were others. In junior high we had a history teacher, a man whom we’d make fun of – I’m ashamed to say – behind his back because he was missing his left hand. The fun stopped when we discovered that he lost the hand while trying take a fighter up during the attack on Pearl Harbor. And there was a coach, a tough guy with a steel plate in his head and another butt of our jokes until I saw him at a parade in his Marine uniform with a foot of ribbons on his left breast. But it has only been in recent years that men like this have finally opened up and probably because there is no longer a need to remain quiet as their comrades die at a rate of 1,000 per day. Through my friendship with George Ciampa, a Torrance D-Day survivor, I met several veterans recently, men who volunteered some of the terrible images that have haunted them for six decades. One recalled a scene on Omaha Beach, a single image out of millions. And maybe he was the only man to witness it, to glance back at the carnage as a truck loaded with GIs was turned into a towering cloud of blood by a land mine. “I wake up with that picture in my head,” he told me, a man finally free to cry.

first_imgThe snow is on the way!Ireland’s most famous amateur weatherman is to send RTE’s weather-watchers a copy of his book for Christmas after they dismissed his theories.TV forecaster Evelyn Cusack launched an on–air dismissal of claims that plants and animals can help predict the weather.Postman Michael Gallagher reckons we’re in for a White Christmas.Evelyn claimed on last Friday night’s 9 o’clock news “People have been asking if we will have a cold winter, and I’m afraid we can’t tell you that as forecasting only goes between five and ten days ahead,” she told viewers. “But some people ask why we don’t use signs from nature? For example can animals predict not only the weather but earthquakes.“Well I’m afraid not! There have been studies done,” she said.And she finished her report by quoting scientist Carl Saga saying “It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion however satisfying and reassuring.”But postman Michael Gallagher, who predicted this week’s cold snap as well as a possible white Christmas, said RTE were wrong more often than not. “How did people tell the weather many years ago before we had satelites and all sorts of fancy gadgets – they turned to nature.“They cannot simply dismiss years of information gathering by generations of people in one news bulletin.“I am standing by my predictions and I’m going to even send them a copy of my book Traditional Weather Signs. They might even learn a thing or two,” he said.Last week Michael predicted a cold snap and today his predictions came through when Donegal and other counties in the North West woke to a dusting of snow.Michael said that is only the start of what will be a series of severe cold snaps which will bring snow throughout the winter. “We will also have snow in and around Christmas Day. I’m confident we will have a white Christmas in many places but you can never exactly pin-point it to a day,” he said.MICHAEL TAKES RTE FORECASTERS TO BOOK OVER PREDICTIONS! was last modified: November 19th, 2013 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:Evelyn CusackMichael GallagherRTElast_img read more


first_imgDonegal County Council has appealed to land owners and members of the public to exercise caution during the current period of dry weather and to take all necessary measures to prevent gorse fires and similar fires.Despite the current cold snap, very little rain is forecast in the coming days leaving shrubbery dry.With the current period of dry weather, gorse, heather and other undergrowth is extremely dry. Fires are likely to spread rapidly and get out of control causing unnecessary damage and putting houses, property and possibly life at risk. These fires also interfere with wildlife breeding and nesting and, in many cases, decimate the local wildlife population.Donegal County Council would also like to remind landowners and members of the public that under the Wildlife Act 1976 and the Wildlife (Amendment) Act 2000.It is an offence to cut, grub, burn or otherwise destroy any vegetation growing on any land not then cultivated between 1st day of March and 31st day of August in any year.This appeal follows information received from the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine which advised forest owners, managers and the public that high forest fire risk conditions now exist over parts of Ireland and that these conditions are expected to continue over the coming Easter holiday weekend. Despite the severe weather being experienced in many parts of the country, the Fire Weather Index forecast produced by Met Eireann for the period 27th to 31st March predicts high fire risk conditions for fire in many parts of Ireland. Low rainfall and moderate South-East or East breezes are forecast to continue for the coming days and will contribute to high fire risk conditions particularly in the South West, West and North-West of the country.Forest owners, farmers, rural dwellers and holiday makers are asked to be vigilant, to report any suspicious activity to the Gardai and to report any uncontrolled or unattended fires immediately to the Fire and Emergency Services.The Department also recommends that forest owners, managers and investors should consider the fire mitigation measures that they can put in place to help prevent loss or damage to forest resources through fire. COUNCIL ISSUES WARNING ON DANGER OF GORSE FIRES DESPITE COLD SNAP was last modified: March 28th, 2013 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:freezing weathergorse firesm Donegal County Councillast_img read more

It can be great craic when the games are on.“It’s a bit of a games room as well, I have a fusball table in it too so it’s a great little spot. “My wife has been very accommodating to be fair to her. She knows I’m United mad, and at least the stuff is out of the way in the attic!”Fergus also revealed how he will be able to fulfil a life-long dream on May 21st when he gets to walk out on the hallowed turf of Old Trafford for a match.Fergus said, “Every year there is a Football Aid charity match.
