MAN TO SKATEBOARD THE LENGTH OF IRELAND STARTING IN DONEGAL!

first_imgA 24 year old skateboarder is to kick-off a fundraising trip tomorrow which will take him the length of the country starting in Malin Head.Edward Downey hopes the fundraising campaign will help provide a skateboarding park for Kilkenny.In the first step of many, Ed is embarking on a journey from the northmost tip of Ireland  at Malin Head to its most southerly point at Mizen Head. Starting tomorrow (THURS), Ed is aiming to longboard 412 miles in 7 days; breaking the existing record of 11 days.The website recording the event, details and progress is www.boardman.ie. This is an incredible challenge which will require outstanding physical and mental perseverance. Although the challenge is colossal, the effort will all be in vain if support cannot be rallied in his and the cause’s favour.Kilkenny is the most populous city/town in Ireland without a skatepark.Members of the skating community of Kilkenny struggle to obtain, let alone attain an area in which to practice their skills. Two groups, Urban Sports Kilkenny and Kilkenny360 were founded in recent years to support local skateboarders, rollerbladers and bmx-ers who have been campaigning for a skatepark facility for several years (extending into decades). Successive Kilkenny County Councils have voiced their support for the cause but have reneged on promises to deliver a skatepark. Recently, the aforementioned groups have taken matters into their own hands and need your support to make this dream of many a reality. MAN TO SKATEBOARD THE LENGTH OF IRELAND STARTING IN DONEGAL! was last modified: September 19th, 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:Edward DowneyMalin Headskateboard parklast_img read more

County’s biggest union in leadership quandary

first_img Durazo, the widow of labor chief Miguel Contreras, who spent a decade building the political influence of the County Federation before his sudden death last May, has strong loyalties within much of the union movement. With the threatened breakaway and lack of a solidarity agreement, some members of the County Fed executive board were believed to want a successor with more time to devote to local issues and little chance of leaving the umbrella union. Ultimately, analysts said the naming of a successor will be pivotal to future success of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who had long relied on Ludlow as a close ally in union issues. Jaime Regalado, director of the Pat Brown Institute at California State University, Los Angeles, said while he believes Ludlow had unique talents in organizing and encouraging people on issues, the greatest impact might be for Villaraigosa. “The mayor was counting on Ludlow as the one person he needed to cover for him with the unions as the mayor deals with other issues,” Regalado said. “The takeover of the school district, for one. Ludlow was able to give him support there. It might be more difficult to get someone to cover the mayor’s flanks on an issue like that. And, the unions need someone who will hold the house of labor together in Los Angeles.” Ludlow has long been a close ally of Villaraigosa – the mayor has variously compared their relationship to that of brothers or father and son – as well as having strong ties throughout the labor movement. Prior to his City Council election, Ludlow had worked for Villaraigosa and also as political director for the County Fed. So far, experts say the loss of Ludlow is a blow to the union but that the years of work by Contreras will help sustain the movement. Los Angeles long has been cited as an example of how traditional unions – building trades, painters and carpenters – have been able to work with newer union members, many from the service industries and government. Contreras was widely credited with bringing that unity together and Ludlow was seen as having the ability to keep the coalition together. Still, by not making an immediate decision on a successor, Regalado said it leaves the union in a quandary. “You have part of the labor movement who will wonder if they have a voice in the Mayor’s Office and others who are more concerned about the impact on their unions and their members,” Regalado said. “It is a drama that will be played out for all of us.” Jack Kyser, chief economist of the Los Angeles Economic Development Corp., said the situation puts the union in an awkward position. “The loss of Martin Ludlow is the loss of someone who grew up in the labor movement and understood it. … It will be a difficult time for anyone who comes in to take control with various contracts coming up for approval and with the year’s elections.” Parke Skelton, who managed Villaraigosa’s mayoral campaign, said he doesn’t believe the impact of Ludlow’s resignation will be long-lasting. “Labor in Los Angeles is bigger than just one person. What Miguel built will not easily be torn down or destroyed with one setback. Martin was there for less than a year and the strength of the union is in its past and will continue.” Rick Orlov, (213) 978-0390 rick.orlov.@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant The deadlock comes just days after Martin Ludlow resigned as head of one of the most powerful labor locals in the nation amid a federal criminal investigation into union campaign contributions during his 2003 City Council race. Ludlow reportedly is negotiating a plea bargain that involves heavy fines, restitution and a ban on serving in public office or a union leadership role. The abrupt resignation marked the second top-level change for the powerful union in less than a year and comes at a crucial time as national unions are facing a Wednesday deadline to sign solidarity agreements that would allow dissenting unions to work together. That breakaway has not affected – so far – groups such as the County Federation, through which the various unions have joined forces for years on political issues. But experts said the issue – in which hotel and restaurant workers, under their UNITE Here union, and members of the various Service Employees International Union locals voted to pull out of the AFL-CIO and form their own organization – might have led to Thursday’s deadlock. The perceived front-runner for the interim job was Maria Elena Durazo, head of UNITE Here in Los Angeles and a national vice president of the organization that is developing plans for a nationwide strike. Signaling potential divisions in the county’s biggest labor union just two days after its top leader resigned, officials emerged from a more than two-hour, closed-door session Thursday saying they had deadlocked over naming a successor. In a terse statement, Rick Icaza, president of the County Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO, said the union’s 32-member executive board was unable to agree on an interim secretary-treasurer to represent the union’s 600,000 workers across the county. “The process is governed by democratic principles and our discussions are continuing,” Icaza said. “It is not appropriate to discuss the details of the deliberations in public.” Icaza, who also is president of United Food and Commercial Workers, Local 770, took no questions and said the board would meet again in a week to try to resolve the issue. last_img read more

Chiquita landfill expansion sought

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 “We want to prevent premature closure to Chiquita. … We want to continue to provide environmentally sound and cost-effective waste disposal for the people in the community and the valley. … This will help postpone the anticipated shortage of cost-effective, in-county disposal capacity,” he said. The county Department of Regional Planning completed an initial application study in July and is preparing an environmental impact report, which could take at least a year, Dean said. But some residents of Val Verde, an unincorporated community of 1,500 people northeast of the dump, believe the expansion would compound their woes. They blame the landfill for a foul odor hanging in their neighborhood, which they have reported to health and air-quality regulators. Despite two nuisance citations from the South Coast Air Quality Management District, landfill officials deny the dump is the source. “Even right now, it’s hard for me to breathe,” said Natalie Tate, a 16-year Val Verde resident. “We’re completely against any more expansion that would cause us any more odor damage and any odor that’s not acceptable.” Bernie Torres, who believes the odor has led to breathing problems, said he is considering moving after 11 years in his home. “I’m entertaining the thought of selling,” he said. “You don’t just live next to a landfill. You live next to a troubled landfill. Even when it (cools) down, the sun still cooks the trash.” When county approval was given in 1996 for the dump to expand from roughly 160 acres to the current 257 acres, the Val Verde Civic Association struck a deal to avoid costly litigation: The association would receive $250,000 a year from the owner – currently Republic Services Inc. – with a 2 percent annual increase. The group, which has used the money to fund scholarships, parks and youth programs, expected roughly $6.8 million over 20 years. But early closure would reduce that. The expansion would include what planners are calling an “East Canyon” extension, northeast of the main canyon landfill, and a smaller “South Footprint” extension near the landfill’s office along state Highway 126. The environmental report’s scope foresees future developments, such as a 21,000-home subdivision at Newhall Ranch, south of Highway 126 and west of Interstate 5. It also calls for evaluating “optimization” of the landfill – with analysis of potential impacts of higher daily volumes and higher maximum elevation, up from 1,430 feet to 1,540 feet. “It’s really a way to frame maximum impact, which is not what we asked for in the application,” Dean said. The civic association president, Jim Stephens, said the group holds no position on the expansion plan, but he expects a contentious debate. “We know that, based on what happened last time, there are an X number of people who’ll say no; (they) don’t want this landfill expansion whatsoever,” he said. “There are others who’ll say: ‘It’s a done deal; let’s talk.’ “This is just the first shot. This will continue to be a big issue in this town.” The civic association will hold a community meeting on the proposed Chiquita Canyon Landfill expansion at 7 p.m. Oct. 13 at the Val Verde County Park clubhouse, 30300 Arlington St. Eugene Tong, (661) 257-5253 eugene.tong@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! VAL VERDE – Owners of the Chiquita Canyon Landfill have proposed a 98-acre expansion to meet the region’s waste disposal needs, and some area residents who have complained of odors from the dump are fearing the worst. Within a 592-acre site, the area used for waste disposal would expand from the current 257 acres to a total of 355 acres under a proposed revision of the landfill master plan. The owners also are seeking a permit allowing on-site treatment of wastewater and solids – sewage – prohibited under the current conditional-use permit from county government. Chiquita Canyon General Manager Michael Dean said Monday the 6,000-tons-per-day landfill still has room to grow, though under current limits it could reach capacity as early as 2013, about six years sooner than some previous estimates. Also expected to close the same year is Puente Hills Landfill, the county’s largest waste disposal site, which takes in some 13,200 tons of trash a day, Dean said. last_img read more

Moments later Lwesibawa sent in a cross from the left but was tipped over by Mutumba.Tooro were asking all the questions at this stage and Captain Willy Kavuma squandered the best chance of the first half, blasting over from close range after the home side failed to deal with Lwesibawa’s long throw in.At the other end, Yasin Mugume tried his luck from distance but his effort was dealt with comfortably by Tooro goalkeeper Joel Mutakubwa.Five minutes to the break, Hakim Ssenkumba was booked for tagging back Musa Mukasa as the right back tried to kick-start a counter.At halftime, neither side would find the break through with the scores deadlocked at 0-0.A minute into the second half, Steven Bengo beat two Tooro players down the right but his left footed shot went wide and over.With six minutes of the second half played, Tooro made the first substitution of the game with Willy Kavuma replaced by John Byamukama.Moments later, Tooro’s Lwesibawa was shown a yellow card for decent after a foul was called against his side.Wakiso also made a substitution of their own with Adul Karim Kasule replacing Mugume.On 63 minutes, Kasule was booked for a nasty foul on Tooro left-back Issa Mubiru, becoming the third player to go into the referee’s book.With a break through not looking like coming anytime soon, the home side made two two quick-fire changes which saw Kiwewa and Ivan Ntege replace Bengo and Duff Lubobi respectively.On 71 minutes, Tooro Allan Kayiwa failed to pounce onto a loose ball in the Wakiso area, scrapping the ball wide from close range following Lwesibawa’s corner.Tooro missed to chances in succession, first Lwesibawa shooting over from just inside the area and then Lumu heading wide off a free-kick from the right.With 6 minutes to play, Ndugwa had a speculative effort fly agonizingly wide after he was teed up by Ntege, 25 yeards from goal.On 88 minutes, Mahad Yaya unleashed a ferocious strike from distance which rattled the cross bar with Mutumba clearly beaten. Omvia could not pounce on the rebound as he was instantly flagged offside.Tooro brought on Baker Buyala to replace Omvia straight after.With the game headed to penalties, Tooro introduced Joshua Kalisa in place of Musa Mukasa in their final change.During penalties, Tooro missed twice as Mubiru’s effort was saved while Byamukama struck the cross bar. For Wakiso, they converted all their spots.Victory sees Wakiso reach the semi finals of the competition on the first time of asking.Comments last_img read more
