first_imgThe Ray Hickey Foundation will pay for pet adoptions by veterans at the Humane Society for Southwest Washington through the end of the month.This is an extension of a Veterans Day program, offering a way for veterans and active duty service members to come home to a loving animal every day.

Yacolt residents along Kelly Road want safety worries addressed

first_imgYACOLT — No one was hurt when a loaded dump truck and trailer barreled through the intersection of Northeast Kelly Road and Northeast Lucia Falls Road and into a creek bed last month, but the crash was another flash point for some residents in their long-running dispute with Clark County.David Rogers, who lives up Kelly Road not far from the crash site, has been lobbying the county for some kind of change in the road rules for years.On Feb. 9, the date of the crash, Rogers received three phone calls about the crash before he was out the door to see what happened.“The neighbors — we’re just tired of this,” he said. “Someone’s going to get killed.”Quarry neighbors have multiple concerns about the mining in the northern parts of the county, but traffic has been high on the list. It’s an old debate.In 2004, after a hearings examiner denied a permit, county commissioners voted to overrule the denial and a Superior Court judge affirmed their reversal, the county granted a mining permit to J.L. Storedahl & Sons to develop a quarry to provide aggregate from Yacolt Mountain.last_img read more

Cold wet spring means far fewer yellow jackets wasps

first_imgAfter a long, harsh winter, spring brought little comfort to man or beast in the Pacific Northwest. For proof, look no further than the regional wasp population.Wasps are a common sight during backyard barbecues and among gardens and trash cans in July and August. But across Washington, yellow jacket and paper wasp populations are down far below normal for this time of year, Washington State University entomologist Richard Zack said. The soggy, cold spring is largely to blame — or maybe thank.In a queen wasp’s life cycle, she will hibernate through the winter then emerge in the spring to build a new colony. At first she does the hunting to feed her few larvae until they’re old enough to do the work and she can stay behind to lay more eggs. For that to work well, the weather needs to be at least fairly dry.“When the spring occurs, they’re very vulnerable to the conditions,” Zack said. “If they find a place to start a nest but the weather is rainy and cold and they can’t go find prey, then they can’t survive. So the nest never really gets started, and for every nest that doesn’t get started, that’s a nest that won’t be there when it is nice.”With mid-summer upon us, outdoors lovers and picnic planners can relax a bit more knowing that there are fewer of the nuisance insects flying around. Because the predator’s population is down this year, there will likely be more insects of other varieties flying around.last_img read more

Clark County employment chills in October with 100 jobs lost

first_imgClark County shed 100 jobs in October, a slight blemish on an otherwise healthy regional economy.According to Scott Bailey, regional economist for the Employment Security Department, it’s not unusual for the county to rise and fall month to month. For example, Clark County lost jobs in August and then gained some again in September.“We have these months every now and then, and then we kick in with a big gain,” he said of the Tuesday jobs report.The unemployment rate, which is not seasonally adjusted, still fell by one-tenth of a percent to 4.4 percent. It’s the sixth consecutive month Clark County has posted an unemployment rate below 5 percent.Bailey added that the unemployment rate fell despite the loss of 100 jobs because they are measured somewhat differently. As far as gauges of economic health go, Bailey said, unemployment rates aren’t as useful as job growth, but they are similar.“Over a longer period of time, they tend to coincide pretty closely,” Bailey said.Without adjusting for seasonal trends, Clark County lost 1,200 jobs in October. That drop was led mainly by leisure and hospitality, which Bailey said is tied to the hiring trend of a specific company that he couldn’t disclose for privacy reasons.last_img read more

Oregon man sentenced in robbery of credit union in April 2017

first_imgAn Oregon City, Ore., man who robbed Vancouver’s Northwest Priority Credit Union in April 2017 was sentenced Wednesday to nearly five years in prison after pleading guilty to first-degree robbery.During the hearing, a prosecutor said that William Kelly III, 25, walked into the credit union, 11215 N.E. 28th St., wearing glasses and a “mid-career Michael Jackson hairstyle” wig then demanded, via note, money from a teller.Kelly disputed the charge but said he was pleading guilty because he believed there was enough evidence for a jury to find him guilty, taking what’s called a Newton plea. It’s treated the same as a guilty plea.He was arrested soon after the robbery, and investigators tied him to another robbery in Portland.According to court records, Kelly previously pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Portland to two counts of bank robbery and was sentenced to 30 months in federal prison. He was also convicted earlier this year in Clackamas County, Ore., of two counts of second-degree burglary, and was sentenced to 19 months in prison to run concurrently with his federal sentence.Clark County Superior Court Judge Bernard Veljacic sentenced Kelly to 57 months in prison, which will run concurrently with the Oregon and federal court sentences.last_img read more

This season is different. We’re not in a title fight this time, and we’re not in the Champions League. We’ll be doing everything we can to bring the trophy home. This trophy is very important for us and for the club.”We’ve played each other quite a few times over the last few seasons. The rivalry between Monaco and PSG is a good thing for both clubs and for French football in general. There will be a good crowd, the stadium will be full, it will be a great occasion.”There are still two months left to play. We have another objective, which is second place.

Mbappes childhood hero revealed to be none other than Ronaldo

first_imgSix years before becoming one of football’s greatest ever young prospects, Kylian Mbappe was just another 13-year-old sitting in his bedroom surrounded by Cristiano Ronaldo postersThe French forward has set the world alight with his stunning Man of the Match performance in Saturday’s 4-3 win over Argentina.Mbappe’s searing pace proved to be too much for the Argentine defence to contain with a top speed of 38km/h having been recorded during that match – which surpassed Ronaldo’s record of being the fastest player at the World Cup at a top speed of 34km/h.The 19-year-old’s brace proved to be the decisive factor for France and he also won Les Bleus the penalty, which Antoine Griezmaan had scored.Mbappe’s father told France Football back in 2016 that the young star used to “spend hours watching videos of Ronaldo on the internet”.Kylian Mbappe, aged 13, in his bedroom – a shrine to his hero Ronaldo.

So it doesn’t really matter who is in front of us, we want to win.“I admired him when I was younger, but that ended. Now I go to the Bernabeu to play and to win.“From someone who has won five Ballons d’Or you can learn a lot. He’s a great player, but I have those here too. Neymar is here and I think he is very similar and is at practically the same level as Cristiano Ronaldo. I learn from [Edinson] Cavani as a goalscorer too.”Great picture of a young Kylian Mbappé in his bedroom.

At some point, he simply has to take control of the situation.“There’s no point blaming the team and saying we don’t get the best out of his qualities. No!

If we do very well and we are able to fight for the title, why not, but the most important thing is to get into the top four,” he commented.“I think if we have a review of the first six or seven months of the season, we have had a little bit of inconsistency when we lost some games to put us in the position we are in now, but we need to work hard, keep going and go on a good run. We are still in four competitions and we can reach our goals.”“I think I played some good and not so good games, but the most important thing is to play as a team, to complement our team-mates, to be organized and work together,” he continued.“I think in training we prepare the game in the best way and we need to reproduce that in the games.”I have chosen to join @chelseafc in 2016 as it has always been my priority. I want to thank the Management of the Club, the President and my agent for making this agreement possible. I am grateful to my teammates and to our amazing fans as the adventure continues.

Premier revels in victory in judgment on 12 storey development

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppThe People are well deserving of the opportunities the development will bring said the Premier, Hon Dr Rufus Ewing in a media statement today issued to express TCIGs gratitude in the ruling of the Chief Justice.CJ Margaret Ramsay Hale ruled in favor of the Government which argued that indeed consultation was sufficient and with changes to the Planning Policy, the wind was knocked out of the sails of the plaintiffs in the case.The Tuscany and the Venetian owners argued that their properties were adversely affected by the policy changes which would enable the 12 storey development to go forth and that consultation was anything but wide. I quote the Government’s release:  “However, the Government was and remains satisfied that consultation was in fact widespread and that interested persons were given ample opportunities and means to communicate and engage with the Government on the proposed amendments via stakeholder meetings, email, letters as well as through public town hall meetings.”Those policy changes which give the Governor and Cabinet greater power in deciding on what can or cannot be built in the TCI also increases the permissible height of apartments, condominiums and hotel buildings and increasing the density of the number of bedrooms per acre and based on the type of development in certain areas on Providenciales.  Grace Bay, Turtle Cove and Northwest Point are among the areas named in the amendments.
