Suspected cow thief, friends nabbed with gun, ammo

first_imgFour men have found themselves in hot water after an unlicensed firearm along with matching rounds of ammunition were discovered in a tractor in which they were travelling.The discovery was made after Police in search of a cow thief stopped the vehicle and conducted a search. Also found in the vehicle was raw beef.Reports are that on Saturday, a cattle rancher from West Coast Berbice reported that a man, whom he identified to investigators, stole his cow.The ranks then went in search of the suspect and found him along with three others in a tractor coming out of the backdam in their village.When the policemen approached the quartet and were about to arrest the suspected cow thief, it was discovered that an unlicensed .38 revolver gun was in the tractor, as well as the matching ammunition.However, while the suspected cow thief did not acknowledge or deny the accusation reported by the farmer, there was beef inside of the tractor.According to a police source, it is suspected that the alleged thief, who is a licensed firearm holder, is also the owner of the unlicensed firearm which was inside of the tractor.Commander of B Division, Paul Langevine on Monday confirmed that the four men were immediately taken into Police custody in light of the find.Up to press time, none of the men had admitted to ownership of the unlicensed gun with matching rounds or knowledge of the missing cow.However, investigations into the stolen cow and the unlicensed firearm continues.last_img read more

PORTSALON GOLF CLUB: LAST MAN STANDING SINGLES MATCHPLAY TOURNAMENT 2012

first_imgRoll up, roll up…this year’s singles Matchplay is calling all golfers in Portsalon to get their names in the hat for the revamped tournament in 2012. This is your chance to take on the best that Portsalon has to offer, one by one, until the last man left standing is declared the Portsalon Golf Club Matchplay Champion for the year. If the prestige of the that title isn’t enough, then how about free subscription for 2013 at your very own Top 20 ranked Irish links golf course.That’s right – the winner of this year’s Matchplay will take away a free subscription for 2013 at Portsalon. We are of course dependent on gaining the required entry to make this feasible for the club, so we encourage all members to get out their names down and entry fee paid ahead of the draw which will take place on March 30th.Entry is €15 per person and must be paid prior to the draw. Each round will be played over a calendar month, allowing sufficient time for everyone to get on the course and play their matches.As usual in the singles event, full handicaps will be applied and any matches not completed in time will be decided by a coin toss from the competition secretary. In an effort to dispel some of the tried and tested reasons of the ‘Ah sure I couldn’t win that off my handicap…’ brigade, we want to take this chance to bring to your attention some facts! The last four Matchplay events in Portsalon were won by two single figure handicappers, one mid-range handicap, and a high handicapper. Eamonn McConigley (7) and Johnny Strain (19) claimed the 2010 and 2011 Club Matchplay titles respectively, while Chris Williams (11) and Ryan McGettigan (8) landed Barton Cup glory.Research has shown the golfer that compiles the best score respective to their handicap will more often than not win on the day. The shots will come and go, and the man that keeps his head will win out.So the proof is out there…play your best game on the day and you will win. And of course, once you start beating the great and the good over 18-holes, feel free to knock on that team captain’s door and let him know you’re the man for him this summer as the club’s teams head out looking for glory across Donegal and Ulster.  PORTSALON GOLF CLUB: LAST MAN STANDING SINGLES MATCHPLAY TOURNAMENT 2012 was last modified: March 21st, 2012 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:Portsalon Golf Clublast_img read more

Art and soul

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week The old art is transformed into new art by the talented fingers and imaginative mind of the Whittier woman, who will be among artists featured at a fine-arts show and sale this weekend at the Diamond Bar Center in Diamond Bar. Art has been an essential aspect of Sullivan’s life since she was a 5-year-old kindergartner, she said. “The teachers had me lay down on the floor and they drew all around my body, literally tracing me. I remember taping the silhouette of my body in the window, so I could see it when I went by on the bus,” Sullivan recalled. Her fascination with art didn’t diminish between childhood and adult life. While attending Whittier High School, she balanced left-brain, right-brain talents and excelled in math, science and more technical academic classes, as well as the performance and visual arts. WHITTIER – Vicki Sullivan of Whittier breaks art to create new art. After being introduced to the work of third-generation potter Jon Price at an art festival, Sullivan imagined turning his vibrant creations into beautiful jewelry fashioned from ceramics. “I suggested he go to school to learn to do jewelry,” Sullivan recalled. “He said he didn’t have time. I did.” The suggestion swiftly shifted from thought to reality. She began buying Price’s seconds, breaking them up and using the shards to create jewelry. She uses a marking pen to determine which shards could be made into rings, necklaces, pendants and bracelets, and then uses a diamond-band saw and a diamond sanding disk to re-shape the shards into flat pieces for jewelry. Her first ceramic piece, created at age 13, strangely went from being a horse’s head to a Madonna and child, she said. “They say clay has a life of its own,” she said, chuckling. “I guess the clay decided it was a Madonna and child, not a horse’s head. Seriously, though, I must confess, I didn’t have technical skills at that time.” Despite her unskilled production, she was encouraged to pursue art by her parents, sister Valerie and brother Bruce. When her mother died, Sullivan found her first sculpture among her mother’s most precious artifacts. She graduated with honors from Whittier High School, was able to skip taking the Scholastic Aptitude Test and was admitted with honors to Rio Hondo College. There, the ceramics door opened and swung wide. “When I got to Rio Hondo, I was offered a whole world of art,” Sullivan recalled. In 1970, Sullivan started Earthy Endeavors, a company creating items made of clay for the gift industry. When she closed the Whittier-based business 13 years later, she had 60 employees. In 1984, she started a second art company, Clearly Creative, and devoted another 14 years to design, production and sales. Today, she and her husband operate Sullivan Studio in Whittier. “Art speaks to the soul,” Sullivan said. “I couldn’t live without it. My God is first. Art is second.” imani.tate@dailybulletin.com (909) 483-8544160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Face-lift spruces Valley’s old mall

first_imgPANORAMA CITY – It’s been a long time since the Panorama Mall passed for chic, but the Valley’s oldest mall is returning to its swanky former self. Its old, wooden parquet floor has been ripped out and replaced with more modern tile. The Macerich Co., which bought the mall in 1979, has brightened the interior and dumped $1 million into making it over. In coming months, it will spend again to fix up the old roof and rework the weathered exterior. While the monetary amount pales in comparison to the hundreds of millions of dollars spent to open the new Simi Valley Town Center or to renovate Westfield Topanga, it’s had an immediate effect in brightening up what was for years a dark, uninviting place. “This company believes in this community and knows that it will get its investment back,” said Chris Facas, vice president of property management for the Santa Monica-based Macerich. “It’s a huge investment, but it’s just a start for what we’re going to do in the next few years.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals The mall, which began as an upscale center anchored by a Broadway department store in the early 1950s, fell out of vogue long ago as its high-toned tenants pulled out. But what it lacked in panache, it made up for with numbers. Largely because of its two-story Wal-Mart and Latino-oriented electronics and home appliance retailer La Curacao, the mall still draws 7 million shoppers a year. It logs $400 in sales per square foot, a respectable number in Southern California’s competitive retail scene. “The changes in the mall look tremendous, symbolic of what’s going on in the surrounding community,” said Councilman Alex Padilla, who represents the area and cruised the mall with buddies as a teen. “This reminds us of what we’ve become and where we’ve come from. The Panorama Mall holds a special place in our hearts.” With the cosmetic improvements, which also include new tables and chairs to make the space more welcoming to residents, Macerich hopes to lure new tenants to round out its mix of national names and independent stores. “I like what they’ve done,” Roberto Torres, a 26-year-old construction worker who lives nearby, said in Spanish. “There’s more people, it’s more entertaining. If it looks better, more people will come now.” Brent Hopkins, (818) 713-3738 brent.hopkins@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Donegal families are living in fear of vulture funds – McConalogue

first_imgThe proposed sale of a vast swathe of loans by Irish banks to vulture funds should not proceed, says Fianna Fáil TD for Donegal Charlie McConalogue.The Donegal Deputy has outined his party’s plans for the prevention of loan sales to so-called vulture funds which are ‘unregulated and unaccountable’. He said that Donegal homeowners are living in fear of being evicted as such funds are less likely to engage with customers.Deputy McConalogue said, “It is evident that banks have shown very little willingness to work through their non-performing loan book. Instead of selling their loan book and outsourcing their dirty work to vulture funds, the banks should be providing sustainable and reasonable solutions for customers willing to cooperate with them. “It is clear now that vulture funds are lining up to buy portfolios of loans from the main banks in Ireland. It is expected that these portfolios will involve SME loans and buy-to-let investment properties. However, the Government has allowed these funds to go completely unregulated in Ireland.“Recently it has emerged that both AIB and Permanent TSB are taking steps to sell large swathes of their mortgage loan books to unregulated vulture funds. The Government has the power to stop this from occurring considering the Irish State has a majority stake holding in both banks.“These vulture funds are accountable to nobody and are completely beyond the reach of the Central Bank. There are many families across Donegal who have fallen behind in their mortgage and are living in fear of losing their homes because they say it is almost impossible to engage with these firms. These funds’ sole interest is in the property, they take no account of social concerns.“Fianna Fáil is opposed to the banks selling their loans to unregulated vulture funds. The banks should not be selling Irish loans to unregulated vulture funds. We will be bringing forward legislation to ensure these sales do not take place,” concluded Deputy McConalogue.
