The local airport recorded another 8.9 millimeters of rain on Wednesday, unofficially bringing the running total through the first eight days of the month, to 47.7.That’s about 57 percent of the local norm for July, traditionally the wettest month of the year in this area, averaging 83.2 millimeters.Simon North, a crop insurance representative with the provincial Agriculture and Lands Ministry, says the rain has benefited local farmers in the area.- Advertisement -[asset|aid=1632|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=553988e5c6dda82201916da60f973154-Simon North 1_1_Pub.mp3]He says it’s too early to estimate how many claims will be filed this year compared to last.Now, even though the region has now received over 80 millimeters in the past 15 days, BC Hydro’s Dave Conway says, water supply levels at the Williston Reservoir are pretty close to normal and a spill this year is still unlikely.Advertisement [asset|aid=1633|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=553988e5c6dda82201916da60f973154-Conway-Williston Reservoir_1_Pub.mp3]Last July, the reservoir came close to its fill limit.

Smith let deputies into his apartment, where he was with his girlfriend’s 5-year-old daughter while the girlfriend was at work, Deeley said. Deputies had earlier indications that Smith and Martinez were involved in the shootings, got more information Friday, did more detective work over the weekend and obtained search and arrest warrants Monday, Deeley said. “They’re friends, though there is a considerable age difference,” Deeley said of the suspects. The men’s apartments are not the ones searched by deputies the day after the sniper attack, though they are in the same complex, across a field and dry Amargosa Creek from the car dealership. Deputies were led to the other apartments by bloodhounds set to track the scent from where rifle shell casings were found at a low block wall that borders the apartment complex. Marijuana was found at one of those apartments, where special-weapons deputies fired tear gas after hearing noise from a television set, although no one was home. Someone from the suspects’ apartments apparently visited that apartment, probably in connection with marijuana sales, Deeley said. “There was traffic back and forth between the two locations,” Deeley said. Deeley said deputies received a number of calls from people offering information and that someone may be eligible for $22,500 in rewards. Most callers said they had read or seen news accounts about the sniper attack or had heard about the rewards, he said. The reward grew Tuesday night to $22,500 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the sniper or snipers. Los Angeles County supervisors offered $10,000, the Lancaster City Council authorized a $5,000 reward Tuesday night, state parole agent Larry Dorsey offered $5,000 from his own pocket at the City Council meeting, and the Association of Los Angeles Deputies, a deputies’ union, put up $2,500. “Because of all the information in the media and news about the reward, we have gotten calls from individuals with information,” Deeley said. Smith was released from state prison in 1998. He had accepted a 15-years-to-life prison term in 1994 for second-degree murder, but an appellate court later reversed the murder conviction and he was convicted of manslaughter, Deeley said. Prosecutors said Smith and two companions, also deaf, lived in South Los Angeles but went to a Van Nuys apartment in 1992 to visit deaf friends. When they went to the apartment of a deaf woman they knew, they found Edward James Powell Jr., 27, with her. An argument broke out, possibly over Powell wearing the rival gang color red, and there was a fight that ended with Smith shooting Powell, prosecutors said. Smith’s attorney contended that police got faulty information from interviews with deaf people without interpreters. Charles F.

None of the deputies was hit. “We believe both were involved in the sniper attack on the deputies and employees at the Mazda dealership,” Deeley said. Deputies will not say what may have been the snipers’ motive. Smith and Martinez were arrested in simultaneous raids at 5 a.m. at the apartments, which are across a small courtyard from each other. Deputies broke open Martinez’s door when no one answered, but he was arrested without resistance. LANCASTER – A deaf convicted killer and a reputed teenage gang member were arrested Wednesday as suspects in a sniper attack three weeks ago on sheriff’s deputies. Val Smith, 35, who served six years behind bars for a 1992 Van Nuys killing, and 19-year-old Samuel Martinez, who deputies identified as a gang member, live in neighboring apartments within sight of the car sales lot where deputies were shot at Jan. 6 by someone with a semiautomatic rifle. “We’ve been watching both of them to determine if they both stay here on a regular basis,” said Capt. Carl Deeley, commander of the Lancaster sheriff’s station, after the pre-dawn arrests by a special-weapons team. Smith and Martinez were booked on suspicion of attempted murder and Martinez on a narcotics offense. Deputies said they found marijuana they believe was being sold from Martinez’s apartment. They didn’t find the .22-caliber rifle used to shoot at the deputies.
Donegal record the largest fall in planning applications in 2014, according to the National Housing Construction Index.Donegal was one of nine counties which recorded a fall in planning applications in 2014, with a -15% decrease, the highest in drop in the country.Wicklow was the best performing county with a year on year gain of +35%, with Dublin (+33%), Meath (+30%), Cavan (+19%) and Westmeath (+18%) also returning significant gains. Nationally the residential construction sector in Ireland experienced mixed fortunes as the rate of growth fell sharply in the last quarter of the year.While both planning applications (+12%) and project commencements (+30%) recorded annual increases in 2014 nationally when compared to the previous 12 months in 2013, there has been a dramatic slowdown in the market from the beginning of the year.The data contained in the National Housing Construction Index is aggregated by consultancy Link2Plans from real time planning and project information in every local authority area, with the latest edition of the National Housing Construction Index tracking every project from January through to December 2014, and comparing it with the same period in 2013.According to Danny O’Shea Managing Director of Link2Plans, “Overall, a combination of a pent up demand and an increased confidence in the sector saw the residential construction sector in Ireland continue the recovery which began in the middle of 2013, with significant increases for the year in both planning applications (+12%) and project commencements (+30%) when compared to the same period in 2013.” Incredible gains not sustainable“As noted by Link2Plans at the time, the incredible gains from the beginning of 2014, which saw increases in project commencements of +132% and planning applications of +19% in the first quarter, were unlikely to be sustained for the entire year. The introduction of new building regulations on 1st March 2014, had a significant impact on the market and resulted in a huge increase in the number of project commencements being lodged before the new regime came into force” continued Danny O’Shea Managing Director of Link2Plans.Project Commencements halve nationallyDonegal recorded an increase in commencements of +50%, while, nationally project commencements for the entire year of 2014 fell by over a half from the middle of the year, with the number of project commencements falling from +66% to +30% when compared with the same period in 2013. The largest year on year gains across the country for project commencements took place in Westmeath (+67%), Cork (+66%) and Galway (+45%) with Dublin recording an increase of +30%.

They say if you want to get something done get a busy person to do it and in that regard Loretta certainly fits that bill,” he said.Cathaoirleach of Donegal County Council, Cllr Ciaran Brogan spoke of his and the Council’s delight at being part of this prestigious event and their commitment and dedication to continuing their strong links with the Irish diaspora.He spoke of the huge contribution made by the late Tip O’Neill to Irish affairs and thanked his family for maintaining their strong links with Donegal and never forgetting where they came from.Chairperson of the Tip O’Neill Irish Diaspora Committee, Cllr. Nicholas Crossan said there was always a ‘Céad Míle Fáilte’ for all visitors to Inishowen and Donegal, particularly members of the Irish diaspora. He also outlined why the Tip O’Neill Irish Diaspora Award now held such a central role in the county’s calendar of events. “The award serves two purposes; it acknowledges the life of Tip O’Neill while at the same time it recognises and celebrates the work and achievements of the broad Irish diaspora,” he said.Minister for Gaeltacht Affairs, Joe McHugh TD said it was important to appreciate what was happening behind the scenes and the leadership being shown at cross-border and at Donegal County Council levels by being ambitious in relation to building the network between America and Donegal.“I believe its Donegal’s time. We all known about the difficulties in the past but we see with the Wild Atlantic Way the benefits of tourism and our wonderful connections with people across the border and we need to build on those. The people from America and the American government have helped us on our way. “The minister also acknowledged the community and business leadership in Inishowen saying they were also part of the success story as well.Tip O’Neill’s son, Tommy, addressed the gathering on behalf of their family. He recited a poem his father used to use to remind him of who he was, where he came from and what his roots, values and life was all about. He said the O’Neill family were delighted that Ms Glucksman had won this year’s award.“My family and I are thoroughly honoured to be here today because Loretta Brennan Glucksman raises this diaspora award in my dad’s name to an even loftier height. Thank you very much for everything you’ve done, your decision, your leadership, your dedication and your passion, we love you,” he said.Presenting the award Minister of State at the Department of the Taoiseach and at the Department of Foreign Affairs with special responsibility for the Irish abroad, Jimmy Deenihan TD praised Donegal County Council’s foresight and imagination by being way ahead of the rest of the country when it came to incorporating the diaspora through various initiatives and enterprises.The five time All-Ireland winning Kerry footballer from Listowel also recalled his many meeting with the late Tip O’Neill describing his contribution to Ireland and Donegal as ‘immense’. He praised the family too for maintaining the strong link and ensuring the legacy lived on.Minister Deenihan also recalled his many meetings with Ms Glucksman over the past 20 years and how the benefits of her work and contributions had changed lives and communities all over the county.“There is no other woman that I can think of from America that has made such a huge contribution and no doubt that’s because of her strong connection with Donegal and also her love of Ireland,” he said.Ms Glucksman was also presented with a specially designed bouquet of flowers by Donegal County Council’s Chief Executive, Seamus Neely. Returning thanks to everyone Ms Glucksman said it was very special not only to be back where her roots were but to be brought there by the O’Neill Clan.She paid tribute to everyone involved in the event saying she was honoured, humbled and grateful for the award.The gala evening ended with MC Mac Grianna reciting a poem ‘Lauds for Loretta’ which was specially written for Ms Glucksman by the poet and playwright and the recipient of the 1995 Nobel Prize in Literature, the late Seamus Heaney.The guests were also treated to a very impressive recital of traditional and contemporary songs by the renowned Inishowen Gateway Choir.TIP O’NEILL IRISH DIASPORA AWARD NIGHT A HUGE SUCCESS was last modified: September 28th, 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:Loretta Brennan GlucksmanTip O’Neill Award

Cockhill started the brighter and took the game to their opponents from the kick off. Cockhill took the lead after 30 minutes when Liam O’Donnell crossed for his brother Aiden to finish from close range. Cockhill continued to press for a second but could not find the 2nd goal. Half Time 1-0 Cockhill.Cockhill got a deserved second when Jazza Mc Laughlin blocked an attempted Eunan Kelly clearance and ran from the half way to slot past McCauley in the Drumkeen goal. Cockhill almost got their third but McCauley made 2 great saves from Liam O’Donnell & Kieran Mc Laughlin. Cockhill’s 3rd goal came when a Gerry Gill cross was flicked on by William O Connor and the in rushing Malachy Mc Dermott might have got the faintest of touches to make it 3-0. A few different Cockhill players claimed the goal. At this stage the game was over as a contest and substitute Connor Keddy got a great headed goal from a Derek Doherty cross on 85 minutes. Conor Carlin almost got a consolation goal late on for Drumkeen but big keeper Gavin Cullen saved smartly with his feet. Cockhill’s veteran midfielder Liam O’Donnell gave an outstanding performance in centre midfield using the ball smartly and led by example with a high energy performance. McElwaine Nets Winner for RoversLetterkenny Rovers 1Fanad Utd. 0Letterkenny Rovers remain in contention for title honours after making hard work of defeating a well organised and youthful Fanad Utd at Leckview Park on Wednesday evening. Rovers now remain in third position going into the weekend games 6 points behind leaders Cockhill but with a game in hand.It was a game of two halves in Leckview with the first half devoid of any goalmouth action until the 38th minute. Fanad were dominating midfield and were attacking at ease and won a succession of corners and free kicks. Daire McDaids free was headed on by the lively Brian McVeigh before falling to Kevin Murray 6 yards out but somehow his shot was cleared by the home defence over the bar.. From the resulting corner by McVeigh it was Murray again who almost scored with his header gathered by Jason Quinn in the Rovers goal. Quinn again had to be at his best saving low to his right from a McVeigh free kick on 43 mins before Fanad had a gilt edged chance to take the lead right on half time. Again it was McVeigh who threaded a lovely ball through to Daire McDaid. Amidst cries for offside from the Rovers bench the Termon man ran clear and only had keeper Quinn to beat but he seemed to hurry his effort and his shot went agonisingly wide of the left hand post. Letterkenny never troubled the Fanad keeper at all in the first which would have been worrying for manager Trevor Scanlon.Fanad started the 2nd half were they had finished the first and Jonathan Minnock did well to block an Adam Serrinha effort after delightful through ball from Caolan McDaid on 50 minutes. However the game seemed to change on the hour mark. A super free kick by Owen Morrison hit the bar before rebounding to Aaron O’Hagan who missed with his header from 6 yards with the goal gaping.. This seemed to galvanise Morrison and Rovers and from then on in they had numerous chances to take the lead. Morrison was the architect behind all of Rovers moves showing some neat touches and vision which created plenty of problems for the Fanad defence. On 66 minutes his perfect weighted ball found Oisin McMenamin and the former Harps man will be wondering how he blazed over from 6 yards out. On 72 minutes Morrison sent Stephen O’Donnell away and his inch perfect cross was met by substitute Matty Harkin whose header was superbly tipped over by young Fanad net minder Shane Graham. Jonathan Minnock then had a free kick narrowly wide after Morrison was fouled as Rovers turned up the heat. Fanad did have a good chance through Daire McDaid on 74 minutes but in the end his tame shot was easily gathered by Quinn.After another great save by the Fanad keeper from a low Oisin McMenamin shot the goal the home side craved arrived on 84 minutes. Substitute Darren McElwaine’s initial effort was smothered well by the home defence before the ball was crossed in where John Doherty was waiting. His header brought a top notch save again from Graham who did superbly to palm the ball away but this time the ball fell to that man McElwaine and he easily slotted home from 4 yards. Letterkenny did have a late scare when Daire McDaid had a shot from 20 yards on 90 mins which just went wide of the Rovers goal.Rovers manager Trevor Scanlon may consider this the best result of the season for his side given the circumstances while Fanad manager Michael Deeney will be delighted as to how his side performed especially in the first half and has a lot to build on at Traigh-a-LochLetterkenny Rovers: Jason Quinn, Barry O’Donnell, Neil Lloyd, John Doherty, Johnathan Minnock, Glenn Gallagher, Aaron O’Hagan, Oisin McMenamin, Jason Doherty, Owen Morrison, Stephen O’Donnell.

Rovers had their chances also-Matt Harkin had an effort well saved by Ciaran Gallagher. Conor Harkin had a great chance of scoring in the 55th minute but for an excellent save from Letterkenny Rovers net minder Jason Quinn. Matt Harkin should have done better shorty after with a effort but the best chance of the game came in the last minute of the 90 when Oisin McMemamin rounded Derry City keeper Gallagher but he somehow blazed the ball high and wide over the crossbar.Derry City Reserves: Ciaran Galagher, Caolan McLaughlin,Conor Barr, Dean Jarvis, Ryan Harkin, Conor McDermott, Paul Ramsey, Aaron McCauley, Rory Patterson, Conor Harkin, Mark Timlin.Letterkenny Rovers: Jason Quinn, Kieran Doherty, Neill Lloyd, John Minnock, John Doherty, Glen Gallagher, Matt Harkin, Aaron O’Hagan, Darren McElwaine, Oisin McMenamin, Owen Morrison.Referee. S.TonerCockhill Squeeze Past BonageeBonagee Utd. 0Cockhill Celtic 1With their two nearest challengers, Derry City & Letterkenny Rovers, pairing off against one another in Buncrana, Cockhill Celtic knew a victory was of the utmost importance yesterday in Bonagee, and they did indeed gain all three points but they were made work for it by a well organised home side who will feel aggrieved at the manner of defeat. The reigning champions started the game very well, with the pace of both Conor Keddy and Jimmy Bradley causing the Bonagee defence all sorts of problems. Cockhill Celtic scored the only goal of the game in the 11th minute, when a mistake by Daryl McDermott from a Keddy cross was thumped home by Liam O’Donnell from inside the area. Bonagee almost equalised ten minutes later when Anthony Appiah raced into the area to force Gavin Cullen to make a great double save, and the same player again was just inches wide when he connected with a Kevin Barr header across the face of the goal. Chances were scarce for both sides for the remainder of the match, the only ones of note were a long range effort from Mal McDermott for the visitors and a Noel O’Donnell chance near the end of the game. Team performances from both sides.

There were dark skies overhead at times but thankfully the only shower of rain was at half time, Drumkeen created a few early chances with Philip Whyte heading wide and Cassidy having an effort saved by Shane Graham and Conor Carlin also shooing wide, Fanad took the lead on fifteen minutes when Brian McVeigh headed home from a free kick out near left corner flag, The lead was short lived as the home team equalised almost immediately when Gary Patton fired home a Darren Cassidy cross, Drumkeen had further opportunities in the first half with Kelly heading over the bar and Carlin having a couple of efforts, Fanad also had a chance near the end of the half when Adam Ferrina shot wide when he was played in by Oisin Hassett after beating the Drumkeen off side trap. Drumkeen started the second half well and went ahead on forty seven minutes when Darren Cassidy fired home from the edge of the box despite the keeper getting a hand to it it still went in at the bottom of the post. Drumkeen were on top now and got a third when Carlin got the goal his overall play deserved, Drumkeen’s fourth goal was a controversial one, Darren McCready took a quick free kick from outside the box which went in, Fanad claimed they were not ready as the referee had not blown the whistle to take the kick but referee Vincent McLaughlin allowed the goal much to the annoyance of the Fanad contingent. Cassidy got his second and Drumkeen’s fifth goal after a great move involving several players, Fanad pulled one back from the penalty spot when McVeigh got his second of the game, Gary Patton got his second when he finished well after a pass from Carlin, Darren Cassidy completed his hat trick with another well worked goal involving several players. There were no more goals in the last few minutes, this was a good display by the home team and they played some nice football, to their credit this young Fanad team kept playing right to the end, DRUMKEEN: Paul McAuley, Justin Deasley, Benny Bonner, Mickey Carroll, Eunan Kelly, Philip Whyte, Darren Cassidy, Darren McCready.

Fulham require a big second half effort after conceding two soft goals from set-pieces against their relegation rivals.The Whites began on the front foot but Dimitar Berbatov fluffed the biggest chance on eight minutes, slicing wide from Sascha Riether’s cross.Sunderland, who had been happy to sit back early on, soon took a foothold and went in front when Johnson curled a free-kick through the grasp of Fulham keeper David Stockdale.The Premier League’s basement club doubled their lead just before the break as Johnson pulled a free-kick back for Ki Sung-Yeung, who fired through a crowd of players.Fulham will be disappointed they didn’t make their possession and territory dominance count early on.Berbatov, who had earlier mistimed a header from a corner and sent it straight at Vito Mannone, somehow managed to squander what transpired to be Fulham’s best chance, after Riether’s cross had found the Bulgarian unmarked.Phil Bardsley saw a deflected low drive pushed away by Stockdale in Sunderland’s first chance but Fulham continued to look the better side.Adel Taarabt blasted a shot straight at Mannone after jinking into the penalty area when he perhaps should have squared it.Sunderland took the lead on 28 minutes when Johnson was adjudged to have been fouled by Steve Sidwell 20 yards out and the former Manchester City winger beat Stockdale.John Arne Riise then gave away the free-kick from which Ki scored, with Fulham slow to react to Johnson’s cut back.Fulham: Stockdale; Riether, Senderos, Amorebieta, Riise; Duff, Parker, Sidwell, Dempsey; Taarabt; Berbatov.Subs: Kasami, Kačaniklić, Richardson, Hughes, Dejagah, Etheridge, Bent.
