Cold dog’s owner finds warm hearts

first_img“We just felt it was important to do this because it was so unbelievable how disgusting people could be,” Sullivan said. Sullivan said a neighbor who reported the burglary in progress could be eligible for a $1,000 reward from Lancaster city government for providing information leading to the arrests of five suspects in the case: a man, 20, and four minors, all from Lancaster. The reward is given in a conviction. Anyone with information about a suspected burglar or robber can call the sheriff’s tip hotline at (661)948-COPS. “I hope something good can come out of this whole incident,” Sullivan said. “If people see something that’s not supposed to be happening, call us.” [email protected] (661) 267-7802160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Holzer said she was overwhelmed by the deputies’ presentation Wednesday morning, noting that she had only been told in advance that station employees purchased toys for her dog. “It means a lot,” Holzer said. “The generosity in the Sheriff’s Department has been amazing, and it’s not just them. A lot of people have helped.” Edwards Air Force Base employees cooked dinner for her and repaired a broken door lock. A San Fernando Valley-based security company installed a free alarm service on Saturday. The $800 was raised by sheriff’s Deputy Melissa Sullivan and her partner, Deputy Lee Schriever, who responded last week to reports of the burglary at Holzer’s home. Sullivan found Roxy in the freezer. Sullivan said the donations she and Schriever collected far exceeded the goal of raising a few hundred dollars. A gift bag of toys for the dog also was presented to Holzer. LANCASTER – The contributions keep coming for the victim of a Lancaster burglary in which cold-hearted culprits put her Chihuahua into a freezer. Kimberly Holzer, a Lancaster woman whose tiny 2-year-old pet Roxy survived being left in an industrial freezer when Holzer’s home was burglarized on Jan.31, was presented $800 this week from Lancaster sheriff’s station employees. Holzer’s east Lancaster home was ransacked during the burglary, and the intruders destroyed $600 worth of new maternity clothes.

Warriors HQ: Why Warriors lost Game 3 despite Steph Curry’s breakout performance

first_imgStephen Curry may have played a career NBA Finals game last night, but he didn’t get backup from the other Warriors. That leaves Golden State in a precarious position as they wait for Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson to return from injury.Curry was a one-man band on offense for most of the Warriors’ Game 3 loss. He opened the game with 17 points in the first quarter, he had 25 in the first half, and he ended the contest with 47. And we should probably be grading that 47 on a curve, considering …last_img read more

East London housing project launched

first_imgSAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo material Social transformation Emerald Sky “We are also upgrading many of the 2 700 informal settlements which exist alongside almost every urban and peri-urban town, to address the squalid conditions of those living there,” he said. According to the Housing Department, settlements also contribute to the country’s social transformation programme of reversing “apartheid spatial planning” and to restore the human dignity and self-esteem of the country’s people. The Emerald Sky project is an innovative initiative aimed at providing affordable housing to people in need. Through it, the government provides grant funding to private developers to build rental homes for low- and middle-income workers in an effort to prevent the spiralling of slum houses in the cities. “You will notice that the new style social housing projects that we are building are on well-located and landscaped land, with access to social amenities such as education, transport, recreational facilities and others,” Zuma said during the event, which was also attended by Human Settlements Minister Tokyo Sexwale. 21 June 2010center_img “All human beings strive to obtain decent shelter in a decent community. That is why as government we are doing all we can to assist our people to obtain affordable and habitable shelter,” Zuma said during the launch of a social housing project in the East London suburb of Amalinda on Saturday. The government’s new housing approach will go a long way towards reversing the apartheid legacy in housing and social planning in South Africa, President Jacob Zuma said in East London over the weekend. The government has built over 2.7-million homes for South Africans since 1994, giving shelter to more than 13-million people. Zuma described the project, consisting of 656 units, of which 350 are already occupied, as an important addition to the government’s response to the need for accommodation. In addition, the government is making available a Guarantee Fund that will make it easier for working people to access a mortgage bond to build their own homes. It is hoped that the initiative could eliminate many of the reasons given by financial institutions for not financing the development of affordable housing. Zuma further said government plans to spend close to R15-billion this year on housing. This is being done in part through the provision of housing grants, with homes being built in more than 8 000 human settlements projects across the country.last_img read more

That camera just received a firmware update in October.The highly anticipated V2.0 firmware for the Panasonic GH5 is finally available. One of the newest features is the ability to record with an ALL-Intra compression, rather than using Long GOP. With all the excitement over this new addition to the GH5, many casual GH5 owners are flocking to the forums to find out what the fuss is about and if it is worth purchasing larger memory cards to film with the new compression format.You can read more about the GH5 V2.0 firmware update here.

BC Ferries Moves Forward with Green Investments

first_imgzoomIllustration; Image Courtesy: Pixabay under CC0 Creative Commons license Canadian ferry owner and operator BC Ferries is continuing with numerous investments aimed at reducing the company’s environmental footprint. In fiscal 2019, BC Ferries invested CAD 241.1 million (around USD 183 million) in capital expenditures.The company financed vessel upgrades and modifications, new vessels, IT projects, terminal building upgrades and terminal marine structures, reinvesting its earnings for the abovementioned period.As informed, BC Ferries’ consolidated net earnings stood at CAD 52.2 million (USD 39.6 million) in fiscal 2019, compared to CAD 59.9 million seen a year earlier.The company experienced its highest vehicle traffic levels ever in fiscal 2019, with passenger traffic levels being the second highest in the company’s history. Specifically, vehicle traffic increased 1.9 percent and passenger traffic 1.2 percent over the prior year.“High traffic volumes allow good financial results which enable us to expand our service to communities, renew the fleet, upgrade terminals, pay down debt and reduce future borrowing,” Mark Collins, BC Ferries’ President and CEO, commented.“These are essential for a sustainable and environmentally-friendly ferry system. Our CAD 3.9 billion 12-year capital plan addresses the need for a more resilient ferry service.”BC Ferries now has five vessels operating on liquefied natural gas (LNG). While still a fossil fuel, it is a cleaner and less expensive fuel source than the ultra-low sulphur diesel used for the other vessels. The cable ferry, which operates between Buckley Bay on Vancouver Island and Denman Island, has smaller power requirements than a traditional ferry, leading to a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions of approximately 50 percent.Moreover, the company currently has two Island Class electric battery hybrid ships under construction for service to coastal communities on Northern Vancouver Island. When electric technology matures and electricity is available in the quantities required, BC Ferries plans to operate them as fully electric ferries.During fiscal 2019, the company also re-introduced the upgraded Spirit of British Columbia into service. The vessel, followed by the second Spirit-class ferry, Spirit of Vancouver, underwent the LNG conversion in Poland.In May 2019, BC Ferries issued a request for proposals for technical services to reduce underwater radiated noise from its vessels. This is expected to help reduce impacts on southern resident killer whales.“Continued investment to reduce our environmental footprint is of great importance to BC Ferries,” Collins pointed out. “We are on a path to greater sustainability by continuously developing and implementing innovative and cost effective ways to minimize our impact on the coastal environment in which we operate,” he concluded.last_img read more
