Police have confirmed some more details about a high-speed chase that ended with two people being arrested and charged with several offences in Dawson Creek on Sept. 3.A 19-year-old male driver, who police confirmed is from Fort St. John, was charged with dangerous driving, driving while disqualified, flight from police, assault with a weapon and possession following a chase, both in a vehicle and on foot, that started around 7 p.m.- Advertisement -Dawson Creek RCMP confirmed the assault charge is related to the suspect striking an officer with his vehicle during the chase. The officer involved was not injured in the incident.The male suspect has since been released from custody on conditions pending his first court appearance after appearing before a Justice of the Peace on Sept. 4.A 16-year-old female passenger was also arrested, but it is unknown if she faces any charges following the incident.The RCMP’s Peace Region Traffic Services initiated a pursuit of a black pick-up truck as the truck was traveling in excess of 160 kilometres an hour on Highway 97 north of Dawson Creek. As the suspect vehicle entered Dawson Creek city limits, detachment members initiated a series of road blocks to prevent the pursuit from entering busy streets.Advertisement The driver then abandoned the truck in the parking lot of the Ramada Inn and fled on foot with his passenger. Both were arrested with help from eye witnesses in the area.
WESTWOOD – Saying Los Angeles County is getting stiffed on voter-approved transportation funding, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa on Monday stepped onto traffic-choked Wilshire Boulevard and urged drivers to call Sacramento to push for change. At stake is about $1.8 billion that L.A. transit officials want for projects to relieve the region’s infamous gridlock – including money for a northbound 405 Freeway car-pool lane into the San Fernando Valley. The California Transportation Commission is meeting today to hold a public hearing on the list of proposed statewide projects, a meeting Villaraigosa and other local officials will attend. Funds would come from Proposition 1B, a $19.9 billion transportation bond that sailed through with voter approval last year. But the county could fall drastically short of its $1.8 billion request after the commission last week said the region could instead get just $327 million. The state panel is set to vote on the proposal Feb. 28. “No matter how you cut it, this proposal leaves Los Angeles commuters severely shortchanged,” Villaraigosa said during a press conference outside the Westwood Federal Building beside a delegation of other city and county officials. Afterward, he darted into and out of traffic on Wilshire as the signal changed, handing out yellow fliers to drivers with the heading, “CALLING ALL LOS ANGELES COMMUTERS!” “We were promised traffic relief. We voted for the bond,” the fliers read. “And we are paying for it.” At first, most motorists appeared bewildered at the sight of a man in a suit trailed by a gaggle of cameramen in the middle of traffic – until they recognized the mayor and his trademark smile. On Friday, the Transportation Commission announced nearly $2.8 billion worth of recommendations for 43 projects using Proposition 1B funds. With the measure approved last year, $4.5 billion was allocated to ease heavily congested roadways. Under that, the commission recommended $327 million for the region, a far cry from the $1.8 billion the Metropolitan Transportation Authority wanted. Caltrans endorsed $1.5 billion of the MTA’s request to help pay for highway projects countywide. On Monday, officials argued that the region – where nearly one-third of the state lives – is not getting its fair share of the money. Home to two major sea ports, Southern California takes on the additional burden of heavy truck traffic that arrives from all parts of the country. “We’re going to have to win,” said MTA board chairwoman and county Supervisor Gloria Molina. “We’re going to change their minds, and we will bring back our fair share.” The commission’s proposal excludes funding for the proposed 10-mile-long 405 Freeway car-pool lane between the 10 and 101 freeways. Commission staffers said they rejected the 405 project because its construction date was unclear in the application. They interpreted it to read 2011 – or later than other projects seeking funding. MTA officials, however, said that was a misinterpretation and that the project is slated to begin in 2009. It has received $130 million in federal funds, which could be jeopardized if construction begins later than planned. Commission Executive Director John Barna said the commissioners were working from written documents submitted by the MTA and Caltrans. Michael Turner, MTA government relations manager, said the commission’s proposals don’t stretch far enough for other projects, like widening the 5 Freeway to 10 lanes in southern L.A. County. The freeway spans 10 lanes in Orange County and squeezes down to six when drivers cross the county line. Officials asked for $387 million for the expansion and instead could receive $157 million – not enough to keep the project going, Turner said. firstname.lastname@example.org (818) 713-3746 Fixing the 405 The 405 Freeway has gone through various makeovers and funding incarnations over the past 17 years: 1990 – The 101-405 intersection is named the nation’s fourth-busiest freeway interchange. 1997 – The Daily News publishes a series showing that state transportation officials considered the interchange a low priority. January 1998 – Caltrans proposes solutions to ease congestion, including widening the northbound 405 by one lane, adding a lane to the transition ramp of the 405 to the eastbound 101 and reconfiguring the northbound 405 on-ramp at Sepulveda Boulevard. December 1998 – The state gives the 101-405 interchange projects funding priority. January 2002 – The southbound 405 car-pool lane over the Sepulveda Pass opens. December 2002 – Caltrans opens a new lane on the northbound 405, adding extra capacity on the downhill slope toward the 101. January 2006 – After an intense political fight, the federal government agrees to spend $130 million for the northbound 405 car-pool lane, and Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signs a bill to start construction by 2009 so the state won’t lose the time-sensitive federal dollars. February – California transportation officials recommend against budgeting the northbound 405 car-pool lane, possibly jeopardizing federal matching funds that must be spent in two years.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

A Duarte man who was barred from attending Irwindale council meetings has won his day in court and plans to show up at the City Council meeting tonight. A Pomona Superior Court judge ordered James Hunley on June 29, 2005, to stay 10 yards away from Edith Alvarado, a business clerk at Irwindale City Hall who also attends council meetings. If Hunley, 56, wanted public records, he had to make an appointment and have a police escort. A court of appeals judge on Feb. 16 reversed the lower court’s decision. “I don’t think the city’s interest is to keep citizens from addressing matters of public concern. This is a win for the little guy, because I went up against the big guns on my own, did my filings myself,” said Hunley. City Attorney Fred Galante said Hunley came into City Hall and was verbally abusive to Alvarado when she was alone with him. Hunley denies those charges. Galante said Alvarado was intimidated. “She didn’t feel comfortable arguing with him when no one else was around,” Galante said. Galante said it would be up to Alvarado whether the city appeals. Hunley has been a thorn in Irwindale’s side, continually challenging public officials over code enforcement issues and the right to public information. A federal judge on June 5, 2002 threw out a $92,000 lawsuit in which Hunley alleged Irwindale officials violated his constitutional rights by selectively enforcing code guidelines. Hunley was ejected from an Irwindale storage yard for having inoperable vehicles; he claimed then-Mayor Mark Breceda and other residents also stored inoperable vehicles on their properties but were never cited. In December 2002, Hunley filed a $5 million claim against Breceda and other city officials. firstname.lastname@example.org (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2108 AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

8 8 2. Put the selfie stick down – A lot of clubs have banned these thankfully. If you really want a photo to prove to people you were there, then just ask someone to take one of you before the game begins or at half-time when others arent trying to watch. 8 8 8. Mexican waves – why? – However bad your team is playing, surely there isn’t any need to resort to a Mexican wave. Thankfully, this seems to really only occur overseas or during international matches and anyway, hasnt the Prime Minister demonstrated that it doesnt look good? 8 6. Calling footballers by their first names – It may be a bit old fashioned, but talkSPORT is of the belief that if you don’t know someone personally then leave dont refer to them by their first name. Ibrahimovic isn’t that hard to say, is it? 5. Leaving the ground early – Surely youre not that desperate to beat the traffic. Especially given the price people are being asked to pay for tickets. Also, it’s nice when players applaud you for the support at the end (unless you’re the fan who moans at everything the team does for 90 minutes). Players have good games and they have bad games and support is not dependent on how well your lot are playing. 8 4. Using Twitter – Just watch the game, mate. Tweet whether you thought the goal was good or not afterwards. 8 3. Filming a moment such as a goal celebration – How can you contain yourself enough to bring out your mobile and film the players celebrating? How are you not jumping up and down, screaming with delight yourself? And when are you really going to watch that video of a free-kick being taken again? The same goes for FaceTiming or using Skype to chat to a friend who isn’t there. Are these the most annoying things football fans do?Here are a few ‘crimes’ supporters commit and talkSPORT.com feels they should cut them out.THE REALLY ANNOYING THINGS FOOTBALLERS DOLet us know if something else really winds you up.Get in touch with talkSPORT on Facebook here.Or on Twitter @talkSPORTRemember, this is just a bit of fun, which is why we didn’t feel the need to include things like fighting, punching police horses and just being an idiot. 1. Half and half scarves – Unless you’re a tourist searching for a souvenir, talkSPORT.com cant see any real reason why you would want to touch something associated with the oppo? Its just not right. We all have friends on the other side of the divide but when youre at the game the only thing that counts is winning, right? Rivalry makes the game what it is and friendship can be resumed afterwards on the bus home. 7. Pub commentators/experts/managers – First, there’s the money you have to spend then there’s where to stand in order to see the telly considering youre unlikely to hear the game. What about the people who think everyone wants to hear what they would do if they were the manager? Although there is that HUGE satisfaction of watching someone storm out of the pub in a strop because his lot have lost. 8

Tis the season — to be mindful, according to Donegal Crime Prevention officer Sgt Paul Wallace.Sgt Wallace has compiled a list of tips for ensuring that our festive season is not turned into a festive nightmare. The lead in to the busy Christmas period is identified as an ideal opportunity to promote crime prevention and encourage awareness. Although it is the time of the year where the majority of us will practice the tradition of giving gifts, unfortunately the majority of burglars view it very differently and see the festive season as an opportune time to break into a home.To help prevent burglaries from happening over the festive season the Garda Community Relations Bureau would like to share the following tips.Going Away For the Festive Holiday• Avoid discussing any holiday plans or planned Christmas outings on any types of social media or in public where strangers may hear or view details of your absence from home. • Make your home look like someone is living in it.• Cancel any newspaper or milk deliveries.• Trusted neighbours and friends may be able to help you by collecting your post, opening and closing curtains and they could park their car in your driveway.• Leave important documents and valuable items with other family members or a bank. Alternatively lock them in a safe.• Do not put your home address on your luggage when you are traveling to your holiday destination. A work address will suffice if you want to label your luggage. • If you normally leave valuable bicycles or similar items in your shed, consider putting them in the house.• Check the locks on any gates or sheds and upgrade/replace if necessary. Make sure anything that can be used by a burglar to gain entry to your property i.e. garden tools are safely locked away.• Make sure that you lock all outside doors and windows and set your house alarm if you have one.At Home • Lock and bolt your doors and windows.• If you used a ladder to put up outside decorations remember to put it away after, preferably in a locked shed. Remember bins and ladders could be used to access first floor windows by a potential burglar.• Remember never leave any presents or valuables where they can be seen by a burglar i.e. in view of a window! Consider putting presents under the Christmas tree early on Christmas morning.• Keep out any unwanted visitors ‐ it is always a good idea to have a door viewer or chain fitted to your front door especially in the holiday season where you are likely to receive more visitors to your home.• Consider fitting exterior lights with sensors in the garden and front of your house. This will help to deter a burglar as they are more confident when working in the dark.• If you are expecting a parcel, make sure someone is there when it is delivered, or ask a neighbour to take it in. Avoid having it left on the door step.• Keep keys, mobile phones, purses, wallets and other valuable items locked away out of sight.• Don’t leave your keys in the door at any time.• Never leave keys in view of the windows or doors.• Once you’ve opened all your gifts, don’t leave the boxes on view outside to advertise your good fortune to criminals.DONEGAL GARDAI HELP PUBLIC TO HAVE A SAFE AND CRIME-FREE CHRISTMAS was last modified: December 19th, 2013 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:CHristmascrime preventiondonegalSgt Paul Wallace
