first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Prophet River and West Moberly First Nations have new grievances they’d like to get before the courts regarding what they view as BC Hydro’s, questionable Site C dam construction tactics.At issue is Hydro’s recent application for a permit to extricate aquatic wildlife from a specific location along the Peace River in order to remove the water.However, the First Nations say Hydro, under fast track pressure from the Province, has indicated it can’t wait for the permit to be issued.- Advertisement -West Moberly First Nation Chief Roland Wilson believes the government pressure is deliberate, and calculated, to spend enough construction money, to influence the outcome of four unresolved court case challenges, three of them now the subject of First Nation’s appeals of earlier rulings.Chief Wilson also argues, even though the First Nations have grounds for another solid court challenge, based on the aforementioned work being done in advance of permit issuance, with the three appeal cases still before the courts, by initiating another one, the First Nations would add to what is already a heavy financial burden.Two of the First Nations pending appeal cases are in the provincial court system and Chief Wilson doesn’t expect dates for them before the federal case is heard, appealing a lower court constitutional rights decision.Advertisement It’s now set for September 14th in Montreal and he says while that wasn’t their location of choice, given the distance, they took it because it was the earliest date they could get.last_img read more

first_imgLight rain fell in the Southland this morning and was expected to intensify later in the day, prompting forecasters to issue a flash flood watch for fire-denuded areas of Los Angeles and Orange counties. The flash flood watch issued by the National Weather Service will go into effect in the region’s burn areas at noon and expire late night. The watch covers virtually all of Los Angeles County, except for the Antelope Valley, and areas of Orange County recently charred in the Santiago Fire. The rainfall, generated by a Pacific storm, could be heavy at times beginning this afternoon, NWS forecasters said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Over the years, as friendships formed and grew, it became the site of neighborhood dinner parties, where cocktails might be served at one home, appetizers at another, the main course across the street. For six Whittier couples, the 11100 block of El Arco Drive was even more than that: It was the nurturing ground of relationships that have lasted more than 50 years. Even today, decades after most of the group has moved away, memories of life on El Arco still draw them together. They meet several times a year to reminisce. “It was an unusual neighborhood, because we all were good friends,” said Anna Cook, 76, who along with her husband, Stanley, are the last remaining couple from the original group still living on El Arco. “We were all of different faiths, but we all got along,” she said. Bob Whittier remembers his years living on El Arco Drive as “good times” for a group of people who “all kind of grew up together.” The neighborhood was close-knit, the 78-year-old said, and the group of friends met often for parties, picnics and holiday events. “At one time, there were a few poker parties,” Whittier recalled. “The guys would start getting together to play poker, until someone started losing too much money. “But that broke up when the wives decided we shouldn’t play anymore,” he added. On Sunday, the group of friends carried on the tradition, meeting at a Marie Callender’s Restaurant in Whittier to catch up on life and talk about their expanding families. “Most of us were veterans just starting out families,” said Karl “Chuck” Freeman, who with his wife, Therese, moved to the block in 1953. “We watched our kids grow up and get married. Then the grandkids came,” he said. The Cooks moved to El Arco around the same time as the Freemans. So did Bob Whittier and his late wife Bonnie, and Donna and Al Broward, who now live in Newport Beach. Carol and Glenn Romine, who decades later moved to Temecula, and Jimmie and Chuck Hauser, now of Hemet, also moved to El Arco in the 1950s. Together, the group of friends have shared the good times and have supported each other through the bad times. Freeman recalled how the network of friends came together when his son died in 1956. “When my son died, I still had four kids at home, and I asked a couple of the gals if they could watch the kids while I went to pick up my wife,” Freeman said. “As we walked in the house, (we noticed) they put flowers in all the rooms, put fresh linens on all the beds, and where there weren’t fresh linens, they brought them from home,” he said. “And there was fried chicken and apple pie and more flowers on the dining room table.” As families grew, the El Arco neighbors began relocating to new places. Between the six original couples, there are 21 now-adult children. But their friendships, loyalty and regular reunions have continued. “When my wife of 50 years passed away, it was those people that were really there for you,” Bob Whittier said of his wife’s death in 1998. Whittier later remarried, and his new wife, Marci, has “come into the group just fine,” said Freeman. “I’ve learned that true friends are with you through thick and through thin,” said Whittier. “And you keep in touch.” araceli.esparza@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3024last_img read more

first_imgBY DONEGAL LADIES GAA: Monaghan v Donegal, Sunday 2:45pm, ClonesMonaghan make the short trip to St Tiernach’s Park on Sunday aiming to make history and become the first side to make it three in-a-row of Ulster senior titles and their seventh in all.Standing in their way will be Donegal who are looking their first title but stamped their mark on this year’s campaign with a highly impressive semi-final victory over Tyrone. Despite that 16 point, win they still enter the decider as massive underdogs against the league champions. Indeed this game is very much like last weekend’s clash between Kilkenny and Galway and everyone knows how that finished up so Donegal will take inspiration from that and will not fear the Monaghan challenge. The sides have met at this stage before with Monaghan coming out on top in 2004 and have been the queens of Ulster football. However, that elusive three in-a-row had eluded them in the past with Armagh ending their hopes in 2006. The Orchard county, along with Tyrone, have also failed to claim a third successive title in the past.Gregory McGonigle’s Monaghan defeated Tyrone the last day out with a superb all round performance. If Donegal are to overcome the odds they will be hoping their dynamic duo of Geraldine McLaughlin and Roisin Curran who between them hit 2-14 the last day are on fire again but they will be coming up against possibly the best full back line in the country at the present moment led by team captain Sharon Courtney.The battle between Monaghan’s Nicola Fahy and Donegal centre half forward Roisin Friel will also be one to watch. Midfield area will be crucial and interesting with Amanda Casey and Cora Courtney up against Aoife McDonnell and Karen Guthrie. While Donegal forwards are dangerous, Monaghan’s too are lethal with so many danger areas and score getters. Experience in finals is of utmost importance and Monaghan’s Niamh Kindlon gives plenty of that to her side. The Magheracloone ace is in sparkling form at present and along with players like Cathriona McConnell, Therese McNally and Ciara McAnespie they have match winners.The question is can Micheal Naughton’s Donegal rediscover their performance from the semi-final and will it be good enough to stop that elusive three in a row and stop Monaghan making history  Donegal and Monaghan have named their teams ahead of Sunday’s Ulster Senior Final clash.Monaghan – Linda Martin, Grainne Mc Nally, Sharon Courtney, Christina Reilly, Therese Mc Nally, Nicola Fahy, Aoife Mc Anespie, Amanda casey, Cora Courtney, Ciara Mc Anespie, Laura Mc Enaney, Ellen Mc Carron, Cathriona Mc Connell, Niamh Kindlon and Caoimhe MohanDonegal – Niamh Mailey, Orlagh Carr, Kelly Wilson, Nicole Mc Laughlin, Aoife watters, Grainne Houston, Therese Mc Cafferty, Aoife Mc Donnell, Karen Guthrie, Kate Keaney, Roisin Friel, Karen Feeney, Roisin Curran, Geraldine Mc laughlin and Ciara D shovlin. UP FOR THE CUP!

first_imgOatfields is bulldozed to the ground this week.Former journalist Amy Rose Harte made a stunning radio documentary which captured the last days of the famous Oatfields Sweet Factory in Letterkenny.In this specially-commissioned piece for Donegal Daily, Amy reveals how she felt when she heard the news that the famous building had been pulled to the ground this week.Amy Rose Harte  This week Letterkenny said goodbye to one of the town’s most iconic landmarks with the demolition of Oatfield Sweet Factory.Local wisdom had it that the Oatfield rooftops could be seen from almost everywhere in Letterkenny, regardless of where one stood.But no more.Oatfields, a global success story, was a major employer of the town for many decades, often seeing different generations of the same family coming through the factory doors to boil sweets, churn chocolate or make toffee for a living. Eventually it grew to become Ireland’s oldest and largest confectionary manufacturer, and over time Oatfield Sweets simply became synonymous with Letterkenny.The once proud sweet factory.Such was its inherent place in our local community that for many years, a large siren that rang from the factory site at various points of the working day served as an alarm clock for people in the town.Many of its products – Orange Chocolates, Eskimo Mints, Winter Easers, Liquorice Bon-Bons – remain firm market favourites, while Irish Butter Toffees and Emeralds have never waned in popularity.Oatfield was one of the first manufacturing factories Letterkenny ever had. With its origins in 1927, it survived numerous recessions, and outlived facilities such as Fruit of the Loom, Hospira, and UNIFI, the Donegal Baking Company and many indigenous businesses.Within the industry itself, it was seen as a leader and a maverick, particularly during its heyday – the 60s and 70s. It was among the first manufacturers worldwide to introduce centres to boiled sweets, while its decision to introduce pre-packing equipment in 1968 is heralded as kick-starting the tradition of pre-packing sweets in Ireland.In recent years, Oatfield was still producing 30 varieties of sweets which were ‘‘pure’’, as the company’s motto suggested. Approximately five tonnes of high-boiled sweets, two tonnes of toffee, two tonnes of eclairs and 1.5 tonnes of Emerald toffees were being produced at the factory every day, with recipes largely the same as they were when the company was established by brothers Ira and Haddon McKinney in 1927. The company’s range of high boiled sweets – Eskimo mints, brandy balls and orange chocolates – were produced on Mondays and Tuesdays, while Emeralds, Irish butter toffees and eclairs were made on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Production in recent times was semi-automated, in comparison to years ago, when the sweets were handmade.In its last few years, while a considerable amount of production was being outsourced to the UK, activity at the factory was quite high, and the 52-strong workforce had their hands full. This was due to a major redesign of the company brand, and a recession-related boost in demand for sweets.But recent commercial pressures meant Oatfield’s days were numbered, and it was closed by current owners, Zed Candy, in May 2012.This week marked the final chapter in the charmed history of the sprawling brown-and-mustard edifice that will never be forgotten.
