Pyeongchang Olympics brings ‘real hope’ to divided Koreas, says Bach

first_imgLATEST STORIES Newsome sets focus on helping Bolts open new PBA season on right track Bach said it had been a “long and difficult journey” to organise an Olympics in Korea, whose two sides are divided by a heavily fortified border — just 30 miles (50 kilometres) from the Games site — and remain technically at war.Officials from France, Germany and Austria all expressed concerns about sending athletes as tensions spiralled last year, when North Korea fired a series of missile tests and exchanged threats of war with the United States.But Bach said: “In all the conversations we had, the Olympic Winter Games Pyeongchang 2018 were never put in doubt. On the contrary, we could always feel support.”“Despite the sometimes worrying political circumstances, we were always standing at the side of our Korean hosts and never talked of a Plan B,” he added.‘Impossible dream’ADVERTISEMENT Michael Porter Jr. stays patient as playing time increases MOST READ Ricci Rivero shuts down transfer rumors Nonito Donaire vs Naoya Inoue is BWAA 2019 Fight of the Year OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

North Korea’s participating in the Games and a unified team under the banner of peace seemed like an impossible dream then,” he added.North Korea is sending 22 athletes to Pyeongchang, along with a large number of officials and an all-female cheer squad.A unified Korean women’s ice hockey team, whose squad includes 12 players from the North, on Sunday made its debut ahead of the Games, losing 3-1 to Sweden in a practice match.The team has proved polarising in South Korea, where it has been blamed for a sudden drop in Moon’s approval ratings.While enthusiastic supporters cheered on the joint team, protesters chanting “Pyongyang Olympics!” also gathered outside, stamping on a picture of North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un and ripping up the blue-and-white Korean unification flag.

Professionals introduce students to classical music

first_imgFourth-grader Jacob Karnofel said the program opens up musical horizons for youngsters like him. “It’s something you can do as a hobby, or even a career,” said the 9-year-old from La Habra. “You also get to meet people and do a lot of good things.” araceli.esparza@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3024160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

You’re all set! “This is something that a lot of them don’t receive in the home,” said Dave Zofrea, a fourth-grade teacher at Lakeview. “Kids love music, and if we can get them exposed and excited for music early on, it does a lot for their learning.” Paris Logan, 9, of Santa Fe Springs got picked to help demonstrate the proper way to hold and play the oboe. “I think this is fun. There’s a lot of instruments I’d never heard of,” said the fourth-grader. Since 1988, the Rio Hondo Symphony Association has brought the program to Whittier and Rowland Heights area schools. The program receives funding from county Supervisor Don Knabe’s office, private donations and local cities. It serves children in Whittier and unincorporated South Whittier, Santa Fe Springs, Pico Rivera and Rowland Heights, officials said. SANTA FE SPRINGS – Buzzing like a swarm of bees, fourth-graders at Lakeview Elementary School puckered their lips Monday and pushed out strong, steady breaths of air. For a crash course in symphonic music, the students practiced embouchure – the mouth position used when playing a woodwind instrument. “You should buzz your lips without pushing your cheeks out,” guest instructor Laura Stone told the students. Principal oboist for the Rio Hondo Symphony, Stone and two other professional musicians visited Lakeview this week as part of the Rio Hondo Symphony Association’s Music Enrichment Program, which introduces youngsters to the world of classical music. last_img read more

Treasure Trunk to benefit MEND

first_imgNot in his wildest imagination did he think that opening his garage door to his neighbors 38 years ago would lead to something this big, Ed Rose says Wednesday, shaking his head. “Every time I drive by that 40,000-square-foot warehouse in Pacoima it blows my mind,” says Rose, the 68-year-old founder of MEND Meet Each Need With Dignity, the San Fernando Valley’s largest poverty-assistance agency. The charity Ed and Carolyn Rose started in the garage of their Mission Hills home in 1968 distributing donated clothing and furniture every Saturday to people in the neighborhood who had fallen on hard times has grown to a multimillion-dollar operation. Today, MEND feeds, shelters, clothes, and provides services to more than 38,000 people a month living below the poverty line. It has more than 2,100 volunteers and annual revenues that top $6 million from cash donations and in-kind contributions, says Marianne Haver-Hill, executive director of MEND. And next month, it will open The Treasure Trunk, an upscale thrift shop in Granada Hills, to sell new and slightly used items to raise funds to serve even more impoverished families living in the Valley. The next time someone says one person can’t make a difference, tell ’em about Ed Rose and his wife, Carolyn. From their one-car garage, they looked around their Northeast Valley neighborhood in the late 1960s and saw many neighbors who had less a lot less than they did. Carolyn, now a nurse at Kaiser Permanente Foundation Hospital in Panorama City, was a stay-at-home mom back then, raising five children in a Mission Hills home without enough bedrooms or bathrooms, but with plenty of love. Ed worked in the finance department at Lockheed, and at the core of their lives were their children and their church Our Lady of Peace Catholic Church in North Hills. Every Saturday morning, their garage door would go up, and anyone in the neighborhood was welcome to take whatever they needed. No questions asked. “Between the people at my work and churches helping us out, our garage was soon crammed with donated items,” Ed said. Pretty soon the Roses had branched out to other neighborhoods, local schools, and churches, looking for people who could use the donated items they had stored in their garage on Mayall Street. By 1971, one garage wasn’t enough. The couple expanded to other garages and rooms in three church parishes and centers. With some friends, they formed a board of directors, and MEND was born. All religions were welcome to join, and soon they did. It went from a garage to a now 40,000-square-foot warehouse in downtown Pacoima. The Roses still stay active, and volunteer at MEND and other local charities. “We still run into people who remember coming to our garage,” said Ed. “Most of them say they’re doing fine now, and they thank us for helping them through a tough period in their lives. It makes you feel awfully good.” After Carolyn retires from her nursing job next year, the Roses are looking forward to doing some volunteering at MEND’s new Treasure Trunk when it opens next month. They can use all the volunteers they can get, says Michele McDowell, who will manage the store. Two, three, four hours a day one or two days a week. Whatever you can afford to them, she says. “We’ll be selling new and gently used adult and children’s clothing, small household appliances, books and some sporting equipment,” McDowell said. Dennis McCarthy’s column appears Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday. dennis.mccarthy@dailynews.com (818) 713-3749 The Treasure Trunk will open May 17 at 16860 Devonshire St., Granada Hills. To volunteer, call Michele McDowell at (818) 896-0246. For information on donating items, call (818) 700-7044.

HEROIN ADDICT WHO HEAD-BUTTED EASONS SHOP ASSISTANT JAILED FOR 12 MONTHS

first_imgA shop assistant was head-butted and punched in the jaw when she tried to stop a man stealing a cash register at an Easons bookstore.Lee Mitchell, 31, had entered the shop at Letterkenny and tried to grab money from two cash registers.When a shop assistant tried to stop him, he head-butted her and then punched her in the cheek. The woman suffered a hairline fracture of her nose and also severe bruising.Two local men came to her rescue and tried to intervene but Mitchell managed to run off but was arrested the next day.Mitchell, of 3 Glencar Park, Letterkenny, was charged with both criminal damage and assault causing harm on February 11th last.Mitchell had been remanded in custody to appear at today’s sitting of Letterkenny District Court.He was also charged with two other robberies, both at the Glencar Express Shop in Glencar, Letterkenny on January 9th and 24th last.It was a shop which Mitchell visited three to four times a day.The court heard that during one of the robberies, Mitchell grabbed a bundle of notes amounting to €835 which was later paid to a drug dealer.Solicitor for the accused Frank Dorrian said Mitchell had been on drugs since he was 12 years old and had used a wide range of drugs and had now become addicted to heroin.He said he was not normally violent but the attack on the shop assistant was borne out of desperation.Judge Paul Kelly said he appreciated Mitchell addiction problems but said the public had to be protected.“This a horrific catalogue in this man’s relatively young life. I can’t have a lot of sympathy for him.“In this case a young lady was going about her job and suffered a nasty injury in her attempts to do just that. Whatever the motivation may have been for this, the public has to be protected,” he said.Judge Kelly sentenced Mitchell to a total 12 months in jail on the various offences.AT HEARING STRICTLY © 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailyHEROIN ADDICT WHO HEAD-BUTTED EASONS SHOP ASSISTANT JAILED FOR 12 MONTHS was last modified: February 20th, 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:donegaldaily.comEASONS BOOKSHOPHEROIN ADDICTLee MitchellLetterkenny District Courtlast_img read more

Welcome back, Lydia

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 Kennard was replaced with Kim Day, whose main task was to ram through Hahn’s LAX plan before election day, even if it stood no chance of ever being fully carried out. The result was a half-commitment to a half-baked plan that security experts say didn’t address safety and no one in the city liked other than those who would profit from it. Luckily, it’s not too late for the city to extract itself from this bad plan. Villaraigosa opposed most of Hahn’s plan during his campaign, except a few immediate safety issues like fixing the runways. He says he’s still feels the same way and supports regionalization. So far, those have only been promises. But the reinstatement of Kennard is a hopeful sign that the $11 billion fiasco that Los Angeles nearly got stuck with has been permanently derailed. Welcome back, Lydia. The airport and the city of Los Angeles will be better for your return. With the re-hiring of Lydia Kennard to head Los Angeles World Airports, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has, with a single action, repudiated his predecessor’s grandiose scheme to massively expand Los Angeles International Airport. Kennard, LAWA’s whip-smart former executive director, was run out of the job in 2003 after enduring years of an imperious Airport Commission led at the time by developer and attorney Ted Stein, who was doing the bidding of then-Mayor James Hahn until the investigations of pay-to-play contracting led to his resignation. Kennard was too decent to make a federal case out of her maltreatment and didn’t really have to. That’s because nearly everyone in the region shared her skepticism over Hahn’s $11 billion LAX modernization plan, as well as her belief that a regionalized approach was best. Her resignation was a loss to Los Angeles. Kennard was largely credited with the tight security at LAX before and during the 9-11 crisis. Considering that LAX has been high on the list of terrorist targets, there’s a good chance that Kennard’s leadership has actually saved lives. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

DAMNING REPORT ON DONEGAL ‘NOT GETTING PROPER COVERAGE’ – CAMPAIGNER

first_imgA RURAL regeneration campaigner has hit out at the coverage given to new damning evidence of Donegal’s declineCharlie McCafferty says the CEDRA Report, which was launched last Monday received muted media coverage and generated little political debate, so far.“The four Political Parties in Donegal have said nothing yet, as far as I can ascertain. There has been no local or national discussion, a full week after the publication of the CEDRA Report, regarding the fact that County Donegal is at the bottom of the Irish Unemployment table,” said McClafferty, a publican in Churchill and independent election candidate. “A previous Teagasc presentation also showed that 4 of the 7 worst National Unemployment Blackspots were in just one County alone- County Donegal.“The CEDRA report was compiled by independent specialists, economists and Departmental staff following a laudable and widespread public consultation process.“The CEDRA Report’s launch was one of Rural Ireland’s biggest opportunities to highlight its crippling disadvantages and focus on the Report’s excellent Recommendations and potential solutions,” he said.The full Report is available online at www.ruralireland.ie The CEDRA Report contains two introductory prefaces, from Minister Hogan, T.D., Dept of Environment and Local Government and Minister Coveney, T.D., Depart of Agriculture, Food and the Marine. The Report was launched in the Museum of Country Life, Castlebar, by An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny, T.D. Minister Hogan, T.D., has indicated a willingness to attend the Seanad, in order to discuss the Report findings with Senators, after the Easter Dáil recess.“Why is one of the main findings in this extensive piece of research, relating to the spatial spread of National Unemployment in 2011, not given a full page Map, or even a half page map, like other less relevant findings?” asked McClafferty.“Why are the three Unemployment Maps, squeezed into Figure 9, on Page 35, not given a range of colour codes for separate categories, like all other maps in this report?“Did it not strike anyone that the exceptional extent of unemployment across County Donegal warranted a mention in the Report’s text?” asked McClafferty“I have written to the Teagasc research team to inquire how much influence the Department of Environment officials and/or Minister Hogan’s special advisors had on editorial decisions regarding the presentation styles used to minimise the visual impact of the Unemployment ‘Black hole’ on Page 35, that is County Donegal? “I have also written to the RTE TV NEWS Editor to enquire if a news item, on the publication of the CEDRA Report, was filed by their Western Correspondent and staff attending the launch, and if so why it was not aired?“The RTE Six O Clock TV News on Monday 14th April covered up to 19 news and sports items that evening, including stories from the USA (3), Ukraine (2), Nigeria and South Africa. Yet for whatever reason, Rural Donegal and Rural Ireland were somehow deemed not to be news worthy!“The Taoiseach was quoted as saying “The Government has a plan for rural Ireland” and that “Change for the better is coming”. The people of Donegal keenly await an elaboration of his unknown Master-plan and I humbly remind him that, “Up Here it is Different – we Still Export Our Young People”.“The Taoiseach may wish to re-read the CEDRA report and re-examine the scale of the economic challenges facing Donegal. He may even wish to consider a growing momentum for a discreet Government Led Donegal Regeneration Programme, if only to tackle the extent and unfortunate burden of the Donegal Live Register on the National Taxpayer, regardless of his Cabinet’s heretofore indifference and lack of compassion for Donegal’s Emigrants,” he added.
