The lease, which expires in October 2008, includes provisions that the clinic not violate any laws. “The collective is operating in conformance with state and municipal law, but the difference is we’re not in conformance with federal law,” Brizendine said. Since the clinic doesn’t have the money to appeal an adverse judgement, it decided to shut down voluntarily, he said. “Obviously we’re disappointed, but what is really necessary is for the federal and state governments to come into alignment on the laws surrounding medical marijuana, he said. California voters in 1996 approved Proposition 215 allowing marijuana to be used for medical purposes. Marijuana use remains illegal under federal law. WHITTIER – There will be no more medical marijuana dispensed from the city’s only clinic after Dec. 31, the planning commission ruled Monday night. Additionally, the Whittier Collective, 12450-A Washington Blvd., has reached agreement with its landlord, the Phelan Family Trust – owners of the Washington-Whittier Medical Center – to vacate the site by that date. The dispensary had applied to extend its conditional use permit until Oct. 31, 2008, but that became moot after the landlord sought to evict the clinic. The attempted eviction because of a letter from the U.S. Department of Justice to the landlord threatening jail time and loss of property because it’s renting to a medical marijuana clinic, said Richard Brizendine, the collective’s attorney. The clinic has several hundred patients, said Bill Britt, a member of the Whittier Collective and executive director and founder of Association of Patient Advocates. “It’s so sad,” Britt said. “You’re getting sick and disabled people who had safe access who now are forced to go into the streets and buy it from criminals.” The Whittier Collective opened in September 2005. City officials learned of it while the council was debating an ordinance to allow, but regulate such clinics. The clinic opened in an area where the city didn’t allow medical marijuana dispensaries. firstname.lastname@example.org (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3022 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

One defendant was given death, the other life in prison Tuesday for the duo’s involvement in the murder of an elderly couple in La Habra Heights in 2001. Theodore Shove, who prosecutors said masterminded the killings, was given the death penalty, while Lewis Hardin, hired to carry out the murders, was given life without parole. Shove, 55, and Hardin, 35, were convicted of the 2001 beating deaths of Hubert “Bert” Souther, 81, and his wife, Elizabeth Ann, 79. Hardin’s lawyer, James Goldstein, said a life sentence was the outcome he and his client hoped for Tuesday. Deputy District Attorney David Walgren said he understands the jury’s decision. “But for Shove and his murder scheme, these murders never would have happened,” Walgren said. Walgren said the sentences will be a comfort for the family of the slain couple. “I’m just glad it’s reached a final resolution for the victims’ family,” he said. “They’ve been waiting for a long time to see a conclusion in this case – for six years.” email@example.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3029 firstname.lastname@example.org (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3026160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

You’re all set! “Our job from the beginning was to save his life,” Goldstein said. “We’ve done that now, so we’re grateful.” Goldstein said Hardin will request a new trial. If that request is thrown out, he will appeal his conviction. Shove’s attorney could not be reached for comment. Prosecutors had urged the Los Angeles Superior Court jury to decide on the death penalty for both defendants in the murder-for-hire case. The Southers’ badly beaten bodies were found in their home in September 2001. Shove hired Hardin to kill the Southers because he wanted the couple’s surplus hardware and tool business, Cal Aero Supply, according to prosecutors, who said the murder weapon was a tire iron.
Enda CraigBY ENDA CRAIG, MOVILLE: I can think of no other word that adequately describes what is happening here.They come into our communities like thieves in the night. They sneak in under the cover of darkness and by the time you confront them, having been woken by the jack-hammers, they are already well on the way to disconnecting your water supply, with one hand, while the other hand hovers over the button that will summon the cavalry, at full tilt, should you be so annoying as to tell them they are not wanted there.And so the abuse continues; for as soon as the cavalry arrive you will be subjected to another layer of abuse, as you are lectured and threatened with every son of a bitch new law, and by-law that was ever heard tell of; while at the same time the real law breakers can be seen and heard sniggering and laughing in their ‘well protected’ water holes. The ‘People’s Guardians of the Peace’ will see to it that Irish Water can disconnect your water without warning. No common-courtesy knock on your door even though it was agreed you were entitled to prior notice. They will break every rule in the Health and Safety book, show no documentation when asked to, and then, even when requested not to, install a water meter against your lawful wishes. And all of this, while totally ignoring the will of the people who are picking up the 650 million euro tab for this shambles and disgraceful abuse.It must be understood that this ‘modus operandi’ is by no means accidental. It is carefully planned and engineered by the sociopathic personnel in the upper echelons of Irish Water. This is designed to leave you helpless as they, and the powers that be, your so called elected representatives, trample and jackboot over your every right as citizens of what is supposed to be ‘a democratic republic’. This government now rules by diktat. And the worthless and shameless politicians, who have abandoned the people and now hide in the shadows, are facilitating this abuse.I say …. SHAME ON YOU.When the time comes around you will get the answer you deserve. This abuse must come to an end.It is only you ‘the people’ who can stop it.Enda Craig, Carnagarve, MovilleVIEWPOINT: IRISH WATER SNEAK INTO OUR COMMUNITIES LIKE THIEVES IN THE NIGHT was last modified: January 11th, 2015 by John2Share 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:enda craigIrish Watermoville

A man told how he could not carry the coffin of his dead mother to her final resting place because of a chest injury he received in a road accident.Letterkenny court.Declan Orr appeared at Letterkenny Circuit Civil Court this morning where he made a personal injury claim. The windscreen repair company owner revealed how his life had fallen apart since the accident which took place on June 22nd, 2011.The court heard how the 48 year old was driving from Letterkenny to Kilmacrennan when he was struck side-on by another car.Mr Orr, of Calhame, Letterkenny, received major chest injuries which he said are still affecting him today.He revealed how he has been forced to give up motor-rallying and also Kung Fu because of pain and despite trying to take up jiving, he could not do so because of the pain.Mr Orr revealed “My whole life fell apart after the accident. I used to do Kung Fu and my daughter drives a rally car and I used to sit on but I can’t put on a seat belt now.“Also just before Christmas my um passed away and I couldn’t carry the coffin,” he revealed.He said that almost three years later he still hears bubbling sounds in his chest at night and feels his chest is going to “cave in.”He also said that he has become “very crabbed” and finds it difficult dealing with people in business.Medical evidence was read into court stating that Mr Orr had suffered soft-tissue injury to his sternum.Barrister Miriam Reilly for defendants Vanessa Stewart and Stephen Browne said she accepted there were injuries but she was trying to clarify the extent of the injuries.She said that although Mr Orr had said he also had foot, shoulder, neck and arm pain, there was no medical evidence of this.In reply Mr Orr said he simply got on with his life and took pain-killers for the other pain but his chest was his real problem.Judge Mary Faherty said she was ruling in favour of Mr Orr.“I am satisfied that two and half years later he hasn’t recovered although medical reports state that a gradual reduction in symptoms will be anticipated,” she said.She awarded Mr Orr damages of €25,000 with special costs of €1,515.52 and also allowed barrister Fiona Crawford her costs.MAN WHO COULD NOT CARRY HIS MOTHER’S COFFIN AWARDED €25,000 FOR CHEST INJURY was last modified: February 26th, 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:accidentCostsDamagesDeclan OrrJudge Mary FahertyLetterkenny Circuit Civil Court

STEPHEN Kenny today quit as Derry City manager – planning to move with his wife and children back to Dublin from his home in Inishowen.His move to the job at Shamrock Rovers has been mooted for several days with Michael O’Neill landing the job as manager of the North.And Kenny took Christmas Eve to make his announcement. He is said to be very upset. His wife and children are said to love living in Donegal.Kenny met with the Derry chairman Philip O’Doherty today to confirm that he was quitting the club.“I met him this morning at 9.45 and his first words were ‘It’s time to go home’,” Derry chairman Mr O’Doherty told BBC Radio Foyle.“It’s very sad and Stephen was quite emotional himself. “The club are very disappointed but we understand that Shamrock Rovers are his hometown club and Stephen lived in Tallaght until he was 20 years of age.”The Derry chairman acknowledged that Kenny’s departure was a “very bad Christmas present”.“It took him a long time to make a dcision and I suppose that’s testimony to how close he was to the people of Derry.“But when the Michael O’Neill thing started to take place, we all suspected that there would be an approach.“It’s very disappointing but I can understand it too. “If it had been any other club, I would have been telling Stephen to wise up but Shamrock Rovers come from Tallaght and it was going to be an attraction for him.”Neighbours and Derry City fans in Inishowen say they will not part on bitter terms.One said today: “He was great for Derry. We wish him all the best.”SHOCK AS KENNY LEAVES DONEGAL BEHIND FOR ROVERS RETURN was last modified: December 24th, 2011 by BrendaShare 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:derry citydonegalInishowenshamrock roversstephen kenny
Well-known Co Donegal writer Denise Blake will read this Friday at the Irish Writers’ Centre (1pm) as part of the Lunctime Readings.She was born in Lakewood Ohio in 1958 and returned to Ireland with her parents and family to live in Letterkenny 1969.Her first collection of poetry, Take a Deep Breath, was published by Summer Palace Press. Her second collection, How to Spin Without Getting Dizzy, was published in Spring 2010. She is a regular contributor to RTÉ’s Sunday Miscellany and her work is in five Sunday Miscellany anthologies. She read as part of Poetry Ireland Introductions series, Out to Lunch readings and took part in the Clé Author and Publisher library tour. Her work has been published in The SHOp, Poetry Ireland Review, The Stinging Fly and West 47.She is a founder of the Errigal Writers’ Group and received an MA in poetry from Lancaster University through the Poets’ House. She has wide experience of giving creative writing workshops in national and secondary schools in Donegal as well as working with adult groups.Here is a questions and answer profile with Denise.When did you start writing poetry? Firstly, I know the moment when I started to love poetry, it was when I read Seamus Heaney’s poem, Docker. We were studying the poem as part of the English segment in a foundation course in Magee College and I loved the imagery in the line; He sits, strong and blunt as a Celtic cross. It was the first time that I could see into a poem for myself. The course was to be my return to education but instead it was my awakening to poetry. I was in my thirties and I had young children. I would never have considered writing a poem before that time. I started reading poetry and writing my own pieces. I was so thrilled with myself when I started producing work. The excitement of seeing new words appear has never left me. There were two strong forces in Co. Donegal at the time – The Killybegs Writers Group and Letterkenny Writers Group – so there were people who were supportive and showed great encouragement. Eventually a group of us evolved into Errigal Writers and we still meet twice a month.What’s been the greatest obstacle to becoming (and remaining) a poet?The “who do you think you are?” chorus sitting on my shoulder. But the question could be; what has helped you stay writing? This is a great country for writing and I have had so much support, starting with my local community. There isn’t a week goes by that I am not asked “are you still writing?” by someone who is willing you on. When we first started Errigal Writers we organized Gerard Byrne to give us workshops and the Irish Writers Centre helped us out. We continued to bring other established writers to Donegal over the years and they have all treated us with a professional respect. I was lucky to be chosen for the Writers Workshop in UCG ( as it was then) with Paula Meehan as our facilitator. You can’t get a more professional, and yet compassionate, person to work with. I was fortunate also to be able to do the MA course in the Poets’ House in Falcaragh. There are so many established writers who are generous with their time and energy. I’m on the directory for Poetry Ireland’s Writers in the Schools and that experience is wonderful.What gets you started on a poem—idea, image, personal experience?The greatest motivation I have is being a member of the Errigal Writers. When I know we are due to meet things start moving in the back of my mind for a while. I become more aware of my surroundings and more susceptible to imagery around me. I will read more poetry in those days and watch performances on you tube. And then I try to find a silence that lets creativity come into the room. I have found my favourite type of moleskine notebooks and I always write the first drafts in longhand. I just love that moment when the first draft is finished. How did you go about getting your poetry published?You have to get work published in magazines; Poetry Ireland Review, the Stinging Fly, The SHOp were the magazines who first accepted my work. I also had pieces on Sunday Miscellany and I love recording for radio. Again I’m fortunate in that Joan and Kate Newmann of Summer Palace Press have a home in Donegal. They used to hold wonderful workshops and readings in their home in Kilcar. Eventually they accepted my manuscript and published Take a Deep Breath in 2004. They put so much work into the editing process that it is a gift when the book is published. My second book , How to Spin Without Getting Dizzy came out in 2010.You are very involved in community-based projects, how did this happen and why is it important to you?I’m not as involved as I should be but I live in Co. Donegal, we don’t have organisations running readings and workshops on an ongoing basis so the Arts Scene kind of works from the earth upwards. Our Arts Officer, Traolach O’Fionnain is very approachable and he encourages us to create events. There were times in the group energy where we needed to perform, or meet other writers, or work with established writers or publish work, so the only thing for it was to organise it ourselves. North West Words is a group who now hold readings with featured writers and open-mic on the last Thursday of every month. I do think there is a hunger for poetry readings here. Are festivals a good outlet for poets?Festivals have the funding for organising events and advertising. Anything that gets poets and writers performing in an area is good.Do female poets face particular challenges? Do young male poets seem to have a higher profile?Yes. But whether that means that female poets face more challenges I’m not sure. It is a very long road.What are you writing next?I’m writing poems for now. That is what is coming when I put the pen to paper and I’m grateful for them. Hopefully it will shape into a third manuscript.Any advice for emerging writers?Love what you are doing. Work at the craft. Read. Be prepared for the long distance not a sprint. Don’t be crucified by rejections. Look carefully at the word emerging, it carries hope and a future. It isn’t: never-going-to-happen writers, but emerging. I love the feeling that anything can happen once you are writing and sending out work.WELL-KNOWN DONEGAL POET TO READ AT IRISH WRITERS’ CENTRE was last modified: March 29th, 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:DENISE BLAKEIRISH WRITERS’ MUSEUM
