Environment Canada says the current cold spell will continue for at least another day, as its hourly readings already show another minus 29, at 1 a.m., 2 a.m., and 4 a.m. this morning. Yesterday’s high temperature was only minus 22.8 and today the forecast calls for something similar, with wind chill temperatures of minus 30 to minus 40.However, by tomorrow morning, the temperature should rise to minus 19 and then we can look for more snow – about five centimetres is the current estimate. By Friday, the high is predicted to get to minus 8 and by Saturday to at least zero, which also likely means, although the forecast makes no reference to it yet, a strong southwest wind.Getting back to snowfall and precipitation numbers, we added nothing more than a trace yesterday, but did make some minor adjustments to the monthly unofficial, running totals. The snowfall amount has been moved up to 40.9 centimetres, and the precipitation total to 38.7 millimetres, and they’re now about 10 centimetres and 10 millimetres ahead of the November norms.- Advertisement –
VICTORIA, B.C. – The Province is undertaking a comprehensive review of British Columbia’s Health, Safety and Reclamation Code to ensure B.C. has strong protections for health, safety and environment at mine sites.According to the Government, following a recommendation from the Mining Jobs Task Force earlier this year, the Province has created a Standing Code Review Committee to ensure that mining continues to be one of the safest heavy industries in B.C. and that regulations remain current and respond to the rapid pace of change in the industry.Michelle Mungall, Minister of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources, says the Government’s number one priority is safety and that they have invested $20 million over three years to hire more inspectors.- Advertisement -“Our government’s number one priority for this foundational industry is safety – for workers, our environment and communities. We’ve invested $20 million over three years to hire more inspectors on the ground and create a new independent oversight unit. The Standing Code Review Committee will help ensure that provincial mining regulations remain effective, innovative and world-leading.”Recently, Mungall appointed 12 mining professionals to the Standing Code Review Committee, which will be chaired by Al Hoffman, executive director, code review.Each member is appointed to the committee for a three-year term.Advertisement
Wojciech Szczesny Roma are reportedly in talks with Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny over a protracted one-year loan move, with a view to a permanent deal.The Polish shot-stopper has found himself down the pecking order at the Emirates Stadium after losing his place to David Ospina halfway through last season and the summer arrival of Petr Cech from Chelsea.While Ospina was tipped to be the one to make way after Cech – who will be the Gunners’ no.1 this season – made the short journey across London, it now appears Szczesny is the most likely custodian to depart.The 25-year-old has made 132 Premier League appearances for the north London club, but his reputation was damaged after being caught smoking in the showers following a 2-0 defeat at Southampton on New Year’s Day – a game in which he was at fault for both goals.Talks are allegedly ongoing with the Serie A side over a proposed loan deal, which could turn into a permanent move depending on his performances in the coming season.Szczesny had earlier fuelled speculation that he was heading to Italy by following a number of Roma’s players on Instagram. 1

Years ago Howard Jarvis spearheaded Proposition 13, which kept the city from taxing people right out of their homes. Voters are supposed to approve new taxes, but now the city of Los Angeles is doing end runs around Proposition 13 by tacking new fees on to everything. How many new cops has the mayor’s trash fees hired? Has money for new cops been pulled out of the budget and been replaced with the new trash fees? What has happened to that money? What is the city attorney doing while this goes on? Who is looking out for the taxpayers? These are just new taxes for things we are supposed to already be getting for our tax dollars. – Mike Leptuch Organizations making long-range conference plans need to check their schedules carefully. Prefontaine’s references to Hank Greenberg and Sandy Koufax are from another era and not relevant to the current issue. The LAUSD and city officials need to do much more than appeal to the CHSSA. They should lead other school districts in the state in pledging a boycott of the tournament. This would send a message to Prefontaine and her borderline anti-Semitic colleagues at the CHSSA. – Abraham Hoffman Valley Glen Appalled I was appalled by Sharon Prefontaine’s anti-Semitic comments about the “choices” that must be made by Jewish children, either forgo observance of a major religious holiday or forgo participating in a statewide educational competition. Her excuse is that Jewish board members initially failed to note the conflict in dates. Prefontaine’s comparisons with Sandy Koufax and Hank Greenberg are even more appalling. Koufax and Greenberg were grown men who chose to report for work, or not, on religious holidays. Koufax is considered to be a hero by Jewish children, Greenberg is not. California has no place for an Ann Coulter clone to be involved with our children in any way. Prefontaine must resign. – Jason L. Weisberg Los Angeles Not good enough Re “Man found guilty of killing couple” (Nov. 30): The case of the convicted murderer Gregory Miner points to a completely proper use of the death penalty. He and accomplices of unknown number and names viciously murdered two elderly people in their home. He could have been given the death penalty, but was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Good, but not good enough. The judge should have said, “Mr. Miner, if, in the next 30 minutes, you give the prosecutor the names of everyone who was with you in the Laskys’ house when the murders occurred, you will be allowed to live out your life in prison. Otherwise you will be sentenced to death by the most painful legal method available in the state of California.” – Sinclair Buckstaff Northridge Best, brightest I have no problem paying the salaries required to hire and retain the best and brightest to work in the public sector. These people provide the essential services we need and we shouldn’t underestimate the value of those services. The problem big city/county government has is the small “best and brightest” contingency does the majority of the work while the others’ effort ranges from good to taking up space. Until we rid ourselves of the Civil Service System the slackers and coasters hide behind, along with the automatic annual pay raises, we will always be overpaying public employees as a group. – Ken Berkman Agoura Hills Holiday blights I am both surprised and disappointed to see all of the holiday lights that have been displayed since the Thanksgiving weekend. Wake up, people! Haven’t you heard of the energy crisis? We are supposed to be saving energy, not using more of it. At least wait until the week before the holiday to turn them on. – Sue Kent West Hills160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

WASHINGTON – Out of ammunition and fleeing enemy fire at the Battle of Gettysburg, 19-year-old Union Sgt. Warren H. Freeman came on a big, badly wounded Confederate officer who asked to be dragged to shelter from the fire of his own side. “I declined for want of time and strength to lift him,” Freeman wrote a few days later in a letter home. Then the officer asked Freeman to take his handkerchief and wipe the sweat from around his eyes. Freeman, still under fire, did. “When exposed in this way to the hot sun and the perspiration starting out freely, it will soon form quite a thick crust and unless wiped from the neighborhood of the eyes it soon becomes very painful,” the young sergeant wrote his father. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinalsThree days of fighting in July 1863 in the Pennsylvania countryside left more than 50,000 soldiers dead, wounded, captured or missing. Freeman survived Gettysburg. It was his ninth battle, from the second Battle of Bull Run in Virginia in 1862 to the struggle for Richmond near the end of the war, fought from 1861 to 1865. His accounts made him the favorite Civil War chronicler for Margaret E. Wagner, a senior writer and editor at the Library of Congress. Wagner’s new volume, “The American Civil War: 365 Days,” has nearly 500 photographs, lithographs, paintings, drawings and cartoons from the hundreds of thousands in the library’s keeping. Many are rarely seen and some may never have been published, Wagner said. One photo, showing Freeman in uniform, is the frontispiece of a book published six years after the war – “Letters from Two Brothers Serving in the War for the Union to their Family at Home in West Cambridge, Mass.” Eugene Freeman was an engineer in the Union Army’s transport service; Warren served in the 13th Massachusetts Volunteers. “I don’t know what happened to him after that,” said Wagner, who quotes from him repeatedly in her book. She also cites the diary of Col. John Beatty – later a brigadier general for the Union side – who was angry at what seemed to be attacks by civilians in Alabama. “I told them that bushwhacking must cease,” Beatty wrote. “Hereafter every time the telegraph wire was cut we would burn a house and every time a train was fired upon we would hang a man, and we would continue to do this until every house was burned and every man hanged between Decatur and Bridgeport” – a distance of 77 miles. The pictures in Wagner’s book do not spare the sensibilities of viewers: A body, disemboweled by a shell, lies in the field at Gettysburg. Bodies are piled in a heap at Corinth, Miss., after a vain attempt by Confederates to regain a railroad hub they had evacuated. A row of skulls rests atop body parts unearthed at Cold Harbor, Va. The battle, toward the end of the war, was one that Union Gen. Ulysses S. Grant said he regretted because the short success of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee’s forces temporarily revived his side. Another of Warren Freeman’s letters said it was both strange and painful that death was mentioned so little in the army. “I remember one of our boys – he was in the same mess with me; he used to speak of some statistics of other wars, how many pounds of lead and iron it took to kill a man and how few were killed in proportion to the number engaged, and what a good chance there was to get off whole – his name was Henry Holden, and he was the first man killed in my company at (the second battle of) Bull Run,” the Union sergeant wrote. Wagner was the co-author and co-editor of “The Library of Congress Civil War Desk Reference” in 2002.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

RESERVE CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL: HUME -” I BECAME DISILLUSIONED WITH SOCCER, AND FELL IN LOVE WITH GAELIC FOOTBALL”
Sean Hume pictured in action for St Eunan’s College, is hoping St Eunan’s can overcome Dungloe in this Saturday’s Donegal Senior Reserve Championship Final.Former Aberdeen FC youth player Sean Hume has said Gaelic Football has been the perfect replacement for him after becoming disillusioned with soccer. Speaking to Donegal Daily ahead of St Eunan’s Senior Reserve Championship Final replay against Dungloe, Hume said that Gaelic Football provided the perfect platform for him after his experience in professional football turned sour.Hume signed for Aberdeen but failed to settle at Pittodrie, and despite the efforts of then Aberdeen manager Craig Brown to convince him to stay Hume was homesick and decided to return home. Peter Hutton snapped up the talented centre-half up for Finn Harps, and Hutton predicted a bright future in the game for the young Letterkenny teenager.However, Hume had fallen out of love with soccer, and simply wasn’t enjoying his football.Hume told Donegal Daily, “I just wasn’t enjoying it anymore, I was going to training with Finn Harps, and I just wasn’t enjoying it.“Now that’s not a reflection on the club, it was just me, I just wasn’t getting the same enjoyment from football as I had in the past. “To sign professionally for Aberdeen was amazing, but I just couldn’t settle over there.“When I returned to Harps, I was playing well, but as I said I just wasn’t enjoying my football.Hume retuned to his studies following his return from Scotland, and it was playing Gaelic Football with St Eunan’s College that he fell in love with the game.He’s been the star man for St Eunan’s Reserves all season, and his display in the final a fortnight ago was particularly eye-catching.“I’m really enjoying it, I’m loving it, and I’m fully focused on Gaelic at the minute. “We’ve had a great year, but we feel we left it behind us the last day, although we were mightily relieved to get a draw in the end up as we nearly lost it.“We’re confident we can finish the job this weekend, but Dungloe are an excellent team and it’s going to be another very, very close and tough game.Hume scored a number of superb frees in the drawn final a fortnight ago and his effort deep in stoppage-time secured a replay.However, Hume says he relishes the responsibility associated with taking frees. “I love that responsibility, I relish it, people were asking me was I nervous hitting that last free but strangely enough I wasn’t.“I was hitting them well, and I felt confident, it could come down to frees at the weekend so hopefully I’ll be in good form again on Saturday.Hume says for now he’s fully committed to Gaelic Football and hopes he can force his way into Maxi Curran’s senior plans at St Eunan’s.Hume sat on the bench against Roslea, he wasn’t used though as management knew if he played he wouldn’t be able to feature for the Reserves this weekend.However, with his free-taking expertise well documented he could be used in their Ulster SFC semi-final on Sunday.“Look I’m only 18, I’ve plenty of years ahead of me to play senior, I’m just focused on finishing the job on Saturday.“If I’m used on Sunday then great, but if not, I’ll just keep the head down and keep working hard.RESERVE CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL: HUME -” I BECAME DISILLUSIONED WITH SOCCER, AND FELL IN LOVE WITH GAELIC FOOTBALL” was last modified: November 14th, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare 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:AberdeenGAAnewsSean HumeSportSt Eunans
