Jordy WeberDivision 5: Advertisement Coach Richard Stickel was encouraged with what he saw in his skaters, given it was the opening meet of the season.“It’s been really good; we’ve had some skaters really skate some impressive times especially for a first meet of the year,” he says. “Some of them are really getting a lot of the technical things like passing and stuff like that which is really tough to learn here.” Technical issues tend to be the main thing that stands out early on in the season. With that, Stickel says the improvement from last year to this year has been great. – Advertisement -“You always kind of wonder where they are going to be at technically. They’ve more than answered any questions you may have there,” he explains. “They’ve all gotten so much better in the last year and they all really, really look strong right now. I’m really surprised how good they look this early in the year.”Going forward, Stickel plans to work with skaters on enhancing their passing skills even further in short track events, given how hard the skill is to perfect. The team will now turn its attention to a Can Am long track meet in Calgary for the club’s older skaters.Below are the results from the Elks:Advertisementlast_img read more

Burbank airs ways to clean up soot

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREOregon Ducks football players get stuck on Disney ride during Rose Bowl eventUnder the plan, each of the city’s 26 construction vehicles would be replaced with cleaner-burning equipment by 2019, said Bob Van Hazelen, the city’s assistant general manager of fleets and buildings. The ordinance also would apply to private companies that contract with the city for work, officials said. The city’s policy would come in addition to a push by the California Air Resources Board to reduce emissions from construction equipment statewide. The draft of that proposed rule will be available for public review in October and is scheduled for board consideration in December. Under that proposal, construction fleets statewide would have to retrofit or replace equipment that violates the new standards. BURBANK – In an effort to clean up Burbank’s sooty air, the City Council tonight will consider setting strict rules for construction equipment used on municipal projects. The proposed ordinance would require all diesel-fueled construction equipment over 50 horsepower – from forklifts to earthmovers – to meet more stringent emissions standards than are currently enforced by various air quality control agencies. Burbank recently ranked sixth on a list of the nation’s top 10 cities with the worst soot, with diesel exhaust the main culprit, according to a study released by the South Coast Air Quality Management District. “We don’t want to be the sixth-sootiest city in the nation,” said Burbank Councilman Todd Campbell, who floated the idea in October. Campbell is also the director of public policy for Seal Beach-based Clean Energy, which provides natural gas for transportation. “It’s something that’s needed given all the development throughout the region.” The city has not yet estimated the cost of complying with its own ordinance. However, officials say it would cost about $468,000 to comply with the proposed state rules, including equipment replacements and engine upgrades – costs they hope to offset through grants. jason.kandel@dailynews.com (818) 546-3306 IF YOU GO The Burbank City Council meets at 6:30 tonight at City Hall, 275 E.

DANIEL TO LAUNCH DONEGAL’S AGE FRIENDLY STRATEGY

first_imgSinger Daniel O’Donnell is to launch the Donegal Age Friendly Strategy.DanielThe project will be officially launched in the Regional Culture Centre in Letterkenny on Friday next, May 22 at 2pm.This launch is an important milestone as it sets out a blueprint for how we will plan and develop communities in the coming years to ensure that Donegal is a truly great place in which to grow up and grow old. Speakers on the day will include Cathaoirleach of Donegal County Council, Cllr John Campbell, Catherine McGuigan, Regional Programme Manager, Age Friendly Ireland and Donegal County Council’s Chief Executive Seamus Neely.The strategy was developed following extensive consultation with older people across the county and aims to ensure that older people continue to be supported to play an active role in their communities.This strategy will be the driver of collaboration by a number of organisations who will work together over the next five years with a focus on improving the quality of lives of older people in Donegal.Older People themselves are central to this process. They are directly involved in this process through membership of Older Person’s Councils and Age Friendly Alliances.This strategy is a direct response to the views gathered from older people over the age of 55 years in Donegal. The values, vision, mission and strategic goals that will drive the Donegal Age Friendly County project come directly from the views of older people, service providers and the organisations taking part in this project.The model has been adopted from the World Health Organisation’s model of Age Friendly Cities and Communities Programme. This is part of the national roll out of Age Friendly Cities and Communities by Age Friendly Ireland.Speaking earlier this week Donegal County Council Chief Executive and Chairman of the Donegal Age Friendly Alliance, Seamus Neely said positive ageing and healthy ageing were in everyone’s interest.“The Donegal Age Friendly Strategy is one of the many ways that we, as a society, will realise the aims and aspirations of these two vital national documents. I am heartened to see the high level of involvement from the public, private, community and voluntary sectors in this initiative,” he said.The Donegal Age Friendly Alliance, which consists of representatives from all stakeholders who have an influence and impact on the lives of older people have crafted a strategy that is far-reaching in nature with a number of new cross cutting actions that will be delivered by a number of organisations over the three year implementation period. Many of the actions will have a very tangible impact on the county, while others, will be more subtly felt. This strategy is innovative in nature; it will see the implementation of national programmes that are new to the county such as the fall prevention programme and the Cúl Taca programme.It also aims to create brand new initiatives that build on the local resources of the county such as enterprise mentoring and an age friendly business programme. Also included are actions that will make a substantial impact on the lives of older people such as Age Friendly Town Planning, Age Friendly Hospitals and increased participation by older people in social, cultural and sporting activities.A critical component of the delivery of this strategy will be the creation of the County Donegal Older People’s Forum, which will be an extensive network of older people which will form part of the Donegal Public Participation Network.Implementation of the twenty one actions outlined in this strategy will obviously have a positive impact on the lives of older people and the collaboration between agencies and service providers that will occur through the work of Donegal Age Friendly Alliance and Donegal Older Persons Forum will also have longer term effects on the overall vision of making Donegal an age friendly county.
