Narbonne still ineligible for playoffs

first_imgIn January, the panel ruled that Morghan had been in violation of its residency requirements and had been ineligible all four seasons. Narbonne was stripped of its 2004, 2005 and 2006 City Section crowns and had to forfeit its games during the time frame, and longtime coach James Anderson was prohibited from coaching at Narbonne for two seasons. Last Tuesday, Mike Medlock said he provided evidence that the family owns the residence, and his daughter’s mailing, bills and drivers license list the property as her address. Last Thursday, an L.A. City Section appeals panel ruled that Morghan, a 2006 McDonald’s All-American and current USC forward, was eligible for her first three seasons, and the ’04 and ’05 titles were re-awarded, but still said she wasn’t in her senior year. HARBOR CITY – CIF State officials declined to intervene in the case brought on behalf of the Narbonne High girls basketball team, which has been prohibited from competing in the upcoming CIF L.A. City Section playoffs because the team was ruled to have played an ineligible athlete in 2006. On Wednesday, parents, coaches and players learned that state officials had deemed last Thursday’s ruling by the L.A. City Section appeals panel on Morghan Medlock’s eligibility status for 2006 and the sanctions handed down were proper. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The playoff pairings will be announced this weekend. “I am not really surprised about the ruling,” Narbonne coach Tim Barnes said. “I don’t know how much more that we can prove. I guess they have got it in their minds that they are not going to believe the evidence the Medlock family presented.” last_img read more

Young will get the start

first_img“I was on a home visit, and I called my wife during the first quarter,” Brown said. “She told me, `It looks like Oklahoma’s going to kill them.’ And I said, `Hang on, sweetie, `Honey, I’ll see you soon.”‘ Oklahoma led USC 7-0 early in the game. But the Trojans scored 28 unanswered points and outscored the Sooners 38-3 the rest of the first half en route to a 55-19 victory. Pundits predicting a USC blowout today have cited the similarities between this game and that one in defending their predictions. “Obviously, the game last year was not, I would say, what we all thought,” Brown said. “It’s not what I would have thought. If those teams played 10 times, the differential wouldn’t be 55-19 every time.” walter.hammerwold@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2239 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Brown said his decision stemmed from Young’s performance in practice the past month and his veteran status. Young is a redshirt junior, whereas Charles is a freshman and Taylor is a sophomore. “We thought we’d put the older guy out there first,” Brown said. “But we’ve played all three backs, and they’ll play during the ballgame. BEVERLY HILLS – Selvin Young will be among the players taking the field for Texas’ first offensive play from scrimmage in tonight’s Rose Bowl. The oft-injured running back was named the starter by head coach Mack Brown at a press conference Tuesday morning. Young began the season listed first on the Longhorns depth chart but saw his time limited by a nagging ankle injury. Young had fallen to third string during the regular season behind emerging stars Jamaal Charles and Ramonce Taylor, both of whom averaged at least 7 yards per carry this year. center_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson“He’s just out there for the first snap.” The Longhorns platooned the three backs this season, with each getting between 72 and 114 carries. They are expected to share time today, along with short-yardage specialist Henry Melton. Young gained 416 yards on 89 carries this season and finished fifth in rushing. Brown said Tuesday he was on a recruiting visit during last season’s Bowl Championship Series title game at the Orange Bowl and did not see much of the first half live. He was shocked by the score when he got home. last_img

INISHOWEN COMES TO GROUNDBREAKING AGREEMENT ON WATER METERS

first_imgThe historic meting and agreement on water meters in Inishowen is agreed.An agreement between MBC Builders (Gildea), Ballybofey and Inishowen groups opposed to water meters has been reached following a groundbreaking meeting.The meeting came about as a result of John Gildea, MBC Builders, recently contacting James Quigley, a local anti water charge campaigner from Buncrana.MBC Builders is one of two subcontractors contracted by GMC Sierra Ltd to install meter ready boundary boxes in place of old water stopcocks in the area.GMC Sierra Ltd have the main contract from Irish Water to install water meters throughout the north/north west of Ireland from Mayo to Donegal.At the meeting John Gildea of MBC Builders agreed that no work will be carried out on properties in Inishowen which have a sign up, indicating that they do not want a meter.The Inishowen groups agreed that they will not oppose MBC Builders working on properties which don’t have a sign up. The agreement is subject to the following conditions;1 MBC Builders will not work on properties who have a sign up indicating that they do not want a water meter installed..2 MBC Builders personnel will not try to coax or by any mean persuade any residents who does not want a meter or who has a sign up indicating so, to change their minds .3 MBC Builders will notify an anti water charge campaigner at least the night before work starts in any particular area.4 All work will be carried out within socially accepted times 7.30am-7.30pm Mon-Fri and 8am to 1pm Sat.James Quigley emphasised that this agreement is between us and MBC Builders. It is all about ‘signs’ on properties whose owners do not want a meter. If people have a sign up they will not get a meter or boundary box. There are some complicated technical issues in respect of work carried out by sub contractors and that carried out by GMC Sierra Ltd. We will be clarifying these issues later in our web page, the media and public meetings. We will also clarify other important issues that came up including the possibility that another contractor may come in after MBC Builders and finish the job or that this agreement paves the way for contractors to complete their job in Inishowen.For some time now campaign groups in the area have been calling for a sensible approach such as this to the water meter controversy.Mr Quigley said “We have repeatedly contacted Irish Water, GMC Sierra and An Garda Siochána to try to set up such an agreement. As far back as February we had a very successful public meeting in Buncrana where campaigners from Moneymore, Drogheda gave a talk on their successful agreement between themselves and contractors. I believe everyone in the packed audience that night were in agreement that we should go down this route.“I am glad we persisted and I am pleased that John Gildea of MBC Builders finally sees that an agreement such as this is the sensible way forward. This is an agreement that satisfies the needs of both sides. It is based on mutual trust and has already been proven in Moneymore and Cork and other parts Donegal that it can be a civilised solution to a difficult problem. All protest groups and Inishowen people should now get behind this new dispensation, give it a fair chance and demonstrate to one and all what can be achieved by reasoned negotiation.”INISHOWEN COMES TO GROUNDBREAKING AGREEMENT ON WATER METERS was last modified: July 18th, 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:donegalInishowenMBC Builderswater meterslast_img read more

ST EUNANS RETAIN JAMES GALLAGHER CUP

first_imgSt. Eunans retained the James Gallagher Cup today in very wet and windy conditions at O’Donnell Park.They came through the group stages at the expense of Ardara and a very determined Buncrana side. In the other group, Fanad Gaels emerged victorous as they saw off the MacCumhaills and Robert Emmets challenge.The final was of a very high standard and the lead changed hands on a couple of occasions in the first half. St. Eunans started the second half leading by a single point but with the aid of the elements, they pulled away to win the game fairly comfortably in the end.The clubs would like to thank Brian McCormick for sponsorship of the medals and to all who helped out on the day.

HEARTACHE AS SOCCER CLUB’S U-16 TEAM PLAYS AT HOME FOR LAST TIME AFTER LAND DISPUTE

first_imgBallybofey United Under-16 team who play Cappry Rovers todayTHIS is the U-16 Ballybofey United team – the last from the historic club to play at Finn View today after 85 years.The club must leave their grounds after being ordered by a judge to make way for a new Aldi supermarket in the Twin Towns.United – founded in 1928 – played at Finn Park until 1971 before moving home next door to allow Finn Harps to enter senior football. The ground is owned by the Butt Hall Trust, founded to promote education and community development.It has sold the ground to Aldi who handed over €1.6M for it.“We never objected to that,” said Gary Foy from the club.“We would never object to job creation in the Twin Towns; however we have a sporting lease and we expected to have been offered a new ground. After today’s last United game on these fields, we will be homeless and that is very sad for all the boys and girls who play from U-8 level right up to our men’s team.” The trust disputes the claim that United teams have played at Finn View since 1971.A judge has set aside €200,000 from the sale in case United take a new legal case for compensation.For the teenagers taking on Cappry Rovers today, they aren’t interested in legal disputes.They just want to play football.And today will be their last ever game at ‘home’.

SURPRISE ENGAGEMENT LED TO PEOPLE BEING FOUND ON BAR AFTERHOURS

first_imgA surprise engagement in a Stranorlar bar led to people staying on drinking later than they should have, Letterkenny District Court has been told.The court heard how Gardai heard noise coming from the Snug Bar on the town’s Main Street after 1am.When Gardai went to investigate, they found around 30 people on the premises. The licensee of the premises, Angela McConnell, of 15 Derry Road, Strabane, was charged with six counts of allowing alcohol to be consumed on her premises after hours and six counts of alcohol to be sold on her premises after hours.Defense solicitor Donagh Cleary said there had ben a surprise engagement in the bar that night and that was one of the reasons why patrons had been late on the premises.He said customers had ordered a mini-bus but there was a common problem with a lack of taxis in the Twin Towns area.He said Ms McConnell had been the licensee of the premises for eight years and had no convictions for after-hours drinking.Judge Paul Kelly was told that closing time on the premises was supposed to be 12.30am.Judge Kelly ordered Ms McConnell to pay €250 to Planet Youth and if the donation was paid he would strike out the matters.SURPRISE ENGAGEMENT LED TO PEOPLE BEING FOUND ON BAR AFTERHOURS was last modified: November 4th, 2014 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:donegalLetterkenny District CourtStranorlarThe snug Barlast_img read more

Innovative working space works at the CoLab

first_imgYou may not have heard, but the world of work is changing and, in Donegal, the CoLab, at Letterkenny’s Institute of Technology, is leading the way with its first class co-working space.The CoLab’s Centre Manager, Patsy Donaghy, says “I first came across the concept in Boston and, after researching it, I found that all the large cities across the globe were embracing the virtues of co-working and the mobile workforce.“Co-working allows companies and individuals to enjoy the perks of being in an office whilst paying considerably less for them. These aren’t the only perks though as co-working spaces also create networking opportunities, inspire creativity and improve work-life balance.” CoLab co-working space at Letterkenny’s Institute of TechnologyThe co-working space is also a fantastic place to network as you get to hear about what else is going on within the CoLab business community, which often leads to commercial collaboration.Chris Quinn, of Chris Quinn Design, an independent graphic designer who specialises in brand marketing within the hotel and tourism industry commented, “as I work online, I often send large files to my clients and the high-speed internet facility at the CoLab is essential to my business.”As one of the full-timers at the co-working space for the past year, Chris ruled out hot-desking as he wanted a space where he could leave his equipment and start work straight away, every day.Chris also enjoys coming in to an office daily as it gives him the structure that he needs to run his business successfully and says, “a major benefit of being here is that as the CoLab and co-working space has grown, so has my business as you naturally network with other businesses in the corridors”. Another co-worker, Nuala Carr, didn’t want to spend all her time travelling to and from her job with Jennings O’Donovan & Partners, an international company headquartered in Sligo. Nuala now commutes two days a week to the company’s Sligo office, and four days a week in the co-working space, which is only five minutes from her home.As an environmental scientist, Nuala carries out environmental impact assessments and project manages the planning phase of renewable energy projects and says, “although we work in teams and I work remotely, we keep in touch by emails and we will soon be using Skype as well.”One of the key attractions of the co-working space for Nuala is “the fantastic internet connection – as I get a lot done when I’m here as I have very little interruption and I can concentrate much better on doing my work”.Nuala has been at the co-working space for just over a year and was the first employee in her company to work remotely. Clearly, Nuala’s employers have recognised the benefit of this way of working and now two more employees have been given the green light to work remotely and are working at co-working spaces in other counties in Ireland.Working for a large Dublin-based, American multinational, Damien Blake spends most of working week in Dublin and, since moving back to Donegal with his young family, he needed to find a work-life balance. He’d heard about the co-working space and spoke to his employer about using the facility for part of the week, which they agreed to. Damien says that the “co-working space is vital as I live in a rural location where the broadband is poor.” Typically, his one day a week at the space is different to the rest of the week as he can put his headphones on and get more things done.That said, Damien also commented, “one of the great things about the co-working space is that there’s a strong network here and a good vibe where people come here to do work which is infectious – but there’s also a nice balance and everyone is very collegial.”Janet Harkin, a marketing professional, works at the co-working space four days a week for Policy in Practice, a UK social software consultancy business which helps people understand the UK welfare policies.As well the usual online communication tools, such as email, Janet also uses Skype and Slack technologies to keep in touch with her colleagues and clients and says, “it’s fantastic that I am based in Donegal, but work for a company in Westminster”. Originally, Janet worked from home, but her broadband wasn’t fast enough. She then found out through someone she knew at the CoLab that the co-working space was opening and said, “it’s absolutely brilliant to have these facilities so close to home, but still feel like you’re going to work in an office.”What you’ll get at the co-working spaceThe co-working space at the CoLab is a modern complex with an open floor plan design. Facilities include high-speed broadband connection, coffee room and meeting rooms, car park and a gym – all in a city centre location, plus we’re working towards operating 24-hour access in the near future.Currently, the CoLab is offering two months’ free for anyone who wants to try out the shared workspace and get a feel for this great working environment.Whether you need a space short term or long term, CoLab can offer great flexibility with their co-working space tariffs.For further information, get in touch with Patsy Donaghy on 074 9186703, or email him at patrick.donaghy@lyit.ie.Innovative working space works at the CoLab was last modified: October 25th, 2016 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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)last_img read more

first_imgSliabh Liag Distillers in Ardara is to submit a planning application to build a new €6 million distillery and visitor centre, which would bring Irish whiskey production back to the county for the first time in 177 years.Sliabh Liag, which produces An Dúlamán Irish Maritime Gin and The Legendary Silkie Irish Whiskey, submit the application to Donegal County Council today.Subject to approval, the construction of the distillery in Ardara is expected to start later this year, with distilling operations beginning in 2020. Led by company directors James and Moria Doherty and James Keith, the site will employ at least 40 people and has received the support of the community.It will have the production capacity of 400,000 litres annually – the equivalent of around 1,700 filled casks and more than 1.2 million bottles of whiskey.The company plans to create a number of brands, including Ardara and Sliabh Liag Irish single malt and pot still whiskeys, which will be heavily peated and “authentic to the style of 19th century whiskeys” from County Donegal.Plans for the new visitor centre include a poitín museum, exhibition space, tasting bar and shop. The site will be designed by Corner Stone Architecture to “complement the village and its natural surroundings”.James Doherty, managing director of Sliabh Liag Distillers, said: “The design of the development is a mix of contemporary and traditional finishes which complement the village of Ardara.“We have put considerable thought into the visitor experience and aim to create an opportunity for visitors to park in the village, walk along the Owentocker river, across a new footbridge and into the Show Field.“It is important to us that local businesses benefit from the footfall, and if we can get visitors walking in the village, increasing their dwell time, then so much the better for the entire community.”“Enhancing Ardara’s offering to its community and visitors has been a major consideration throughout the design process. “We intend to conserve the portion of the land nearest to the village as an open green space, with walkways and ponds providing a beautifully landscaped area to be enjoyed by everybody.”Sliabh Liag submits plans for €6m whiskey distillery was last modified: April 4th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare 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:ArdaracouncildonegalplanningplansSliabh Liag Distillerylast_img read more
