first_img**For the latest on this story Click HereFort St. John Fire Crews are currently on scene as the Fort Hotel is on fire.- Advertisement -The fire started shortly after 5pm and continues to burn.  According to Fire Chief Fred Burrows fire crews will not enter the building and will let the fire burn itself out, but make sure that it doesn’t spread to other buildings.Crews are attacking the fire from outside with all of the fire equipment available in Fort St. John.  A north wind is blowing the fire and smoke back into the building which is making it more difficult to fight. The fire has caused a large power outage in Fort St. John as a major power line runs between the Fort Hotel and the Marc Joseph Buildings.  Power was cut because of the fire to an area from 114ave to the Alaska Highway and east of 100th street.  Power is expected to be back on by 9pm, but that could change depending on the fire.We will have more information as it becomes available.Advertisement Got a picture of the fire?  Send it our way contact@energeticcity-beta.mystagingwebsite.comlast_img read more

Oregon beats Arizona easily; Cal is up next

first_imgOregon will meet California in tonight’s semifinals at Staples Center. Porter, a 5-foot-6 freshman, shot 8-of-12 including 5-of-6 from 3-point range for 21 points. Brooks, the Ducks’ leading scorer, had all 16 of his points in the first 13 minutes to help put Oregon ahead for good. “It was our skill and quickness against their skill and quickness, and today we were a little bit better shooting the ball,” Kent said. “The last four games we’ve played them have come down to the last two minutes,” Kent said. “I thought this would be another of those games.” The teams split their last four games, with Oregon winning by five and three points and Arizona winning by two points twice. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Treatment plan for water delayed

first_imgSANTA CLARITA – Construction of a pump-and-treat system for contaminated groundwater near the Whittaker-Bermite site has been delayed, and it will not be running until next year, officials said. But at least the money to fund the system has been secured following last week’s announcement of a settlement with the current and former owners of the former munitions plant. The agreement could bring nearly $100million to local water agencies. The pump-and-treat system was supposed to be running by the end of this year, taking water from two wells near the 996-acre property and treating it at a plant near Lowe’s Home Improvement on Bouquet Canyon Road. But the plan has met with obstacles, especially negotiating a right-of-way for the pipeline between the two wells and the treatment plant, said Dan Masnada, general manager of the Castaic Lake Water Agency. Having the new pump-and-treat system up and running was part of the water agency’s long-term plan to meet water needs for the ever-increasing homes in the Santa Clarita Valley. “There are folks out there who say, `Hey, this is a lost supply; you shouldn’t count it.’ But that’s ludicrous,” Masnada said. The only question has been who would pay for the treatment, and that was resolved with the settlement. “Actually, the treatment mechanism is pretty simple,” Masnada said. About half the water supplied to homes and businesses throughout the Santa Clarita Valley comes from underground. Two aquifers, or underground water supplies, are found near the Santa Clara River: the relatively shallow alluvial aquifer, which is tapped by more than 30 wells, and the Saugus aquifer, which supplies water to about a dozen. But the river flows close to the Whittaker-Bermite site, a former munitions plant. Perchlorate, a rocket fuel component linked to thyroid problems, had migrated from the site into the groundwater. Four wells in the Saugus aquifer had to be shut down in 1997 because of pollution from the Whittaker-Bermite site. The pump-and-treat system is supposed to treat water from two of the wells that were shut down, Saugus wells 1 and 2. Those are at Magic Mountain Parkway near a fork of the Santa Clara River and at San Fernando Road and Magic Mountain Parkway. The Daily News reported last week the settlement ends a lawsuit with the current and former owners of Whittaker-Bermite and adds to a $10million agreement secured in 2003. It does not specify a total dollar figure, but it does set a 30-year payment schedule. The Castaic Lake Water Agency and other water agencies will receive an immediate payment of $22.5million, plus $10million for a “rapid-response” fund in case any additional wells become polluted by contaminants flowing down from Whittaker-Bermite. But the biggest chunk of the settlement will be $55million for cleanup of groundwater, especially the pump-and-treat system for Saugus wells 1 and 2. The amount could change, depending on inflation and technological advances. Optimistic plans Meanwhile, soil cleanup continues on the property itself. The owners and the California Department of Toxic Substances Control are working on a plan for cleaning up the groundwater that remains on the site. They hope to have a report by the end of the month on methods that could be used to treat the deep groundwater on the site, said Jose Diaz, project manager for DTSC. After that, the plan would still need to be reviewed by the public, and that is still months away. A decontamination method likely to be recommended for the site is pump-and-treat, just like the Castaic Lake Water Agency is doing off site, Diaz said. And the public will not be paying for it, he added. The development company SunCal and cleanup experts Cherokee Investment Partners are working to decontaminate the property that sits more or less in the middle of Santa Clarita just south of Saugus Speedway. City officials are excited about the prospects. A 3,000-home development was proposed there years ago, but newer proposals are completely different, city planning manager Lisa Hardy said. One idea is to take advantage of the nearby Metrolink station and build a transit-oriented village, she said. “We really see this property being a jewel of the valley,” she said. “So now we can turn our attention to taking this project to the next chapter.” alex.dobuzinskis@dailynews.com (661) 257-5253 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Dick Advocaat insists he does NOT plan on quitting Sunderland

first_imgSunderland manager Dick Advocaat insists he will not be walking away from the club.The Dutchman replaced Gus Poyet as Black Cats boss in March on a short-term deal and steered them to safety last season.He duly signed a one-year contract to lead the north-east club during the 2015-16 campaign, but has been linked with a swift departure having recentlry criticised the club’s spending activity.But Advocaat, who is the bookmakers’ favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave his post, insists he remains fully committed to their cause and plans to see out the season.“I never said that I will quit this club. I hope I can stay until the end of the season,” Advocaat told a press conference ahead of the Black Cats’ league encounter at Aston Villa on Saturday, as quoted by several national newspapers.“Honestly. This is a great club, I really mean that. I have been at many great clubs but this is a really special one.”Sunderland have claimed just a point from their opening three games of the season, but Advocaat is adamant they will bounce back.“I have had a good talk with the president and also the players this week. The team will be there for me,” he added.“We did it last year [avoid relegation] and we will do the same again.

Kante could be key to Chelsea’s title chances

first_imgIf Chelsea are to challenge the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City this season then N’Golo Kante being redeployed in his natural position is a must.The odds are stacked against Chelsea winning the title – check out betting apps 2019 for more on that – but if Kante can return to his brilliant best then their chances will surely increase.And his brilliant best is as one of the finest defensive midfielders around, not the kind of swashbuckling attacking midfielder former manager Maurizio Sarri tried to turn him into.Sarri’s successor Frank Lampard will surely use Kante in his natural role, Chelsea fans can be assured of that.Injury worryThe immediate concern is over Kante’s fitness. A knee injury he picked up towards the end of last season has flared up again, leading him to return to London from Chelsea’s pre-season training camp in Japan.Lampard, though, is optimistic that the Frenchman will be available for the start of the new season.“I sent him home a few days ago. Even though I said how good the trip has been for someone who is in their rehab, I think it has been more beneficial for him to be at Cobham with the facilities we have there,” Lampard said.“It’s not a big backwards step that has been taken. He’s improving and hopefully by the time we get back and start training towards the weekend he will be in a position to pretty much join in with us.“I don’t like to get ahead of myself because he has not fully trained yet but the doctors are telling me [Kante should be OK].“It wasn’t being conservative with him, it was more to have him do the best possible work.“I am hopeful he will be ready for the start of the season and maybe it’s a [good] break for a player who has played so many games over the past few years at such a level in terms of output and energy.”Those comments will encourage Chelsea fans, whose side will begin the new campaign with an away trip to face Manchester United at Old Trafford.

First online fed cattle auction a success

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest At the end of May, something groundbreaking occurred for the livestock industry as Superior Livestock Auction conducted the first online fed cattle sale.“I would say it was a very successful day,” said Ed Greiman, chairman of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association’s (NCBA) Cattle Marketing and International Trade Committee. “There were 1,600 head of cattle sold, which is where many sellers thought the market was going to be.”The bigger news is that a lot of people were watching, so much so that the website hosting the sale went down as a result of too many people logging on.“This is all about price discovery — showing people that there is a cash market out there and adding to the fundamentals,” Greiman said. “We’re not worried about how much volume is on the sale, it’s really all about moving some cattle.”The glitches, that can be expected any time something new like this is attempted, will be worked out and Greiman said with each week that goes by, the online sales will go more smoothly.“I talked to some farmers, like myself, that had cattle in this initial sale,” Greiman said. “We all plan to put more in the sale next week and watch this effort slowly build.”The main goal for starting to sell fed cattle online is to provide transparency.“Three of the major packers looked at the cattle and were active on bidding,” Greiman said. “We also saw many regional packers taking part in the sale and the best part is we saw a lot of participation. Not one packer bought all of the cattle and we also had packers selling their cattle, which is good news too.”These new, innovative tools will lead the cattle industry in a new direction in the future and will give producers another avenue to sell cattle, rather than just putting them on a formula and handing them over to the packer. Greiman is hoping that lawmakers will take notice of the success of these new ideas for marketing cattle.“We need to be clear to Congress that cattlemen are trying to fix their own problem,” Greiman said. “So, if we need more price discovery and the industry needs to see what fat cattle are bringing, this is one of the solutions. The best part is that this is a solution that was thought up by cattlemen who are selling the cattle.”last_img read more

Confirmed: Twitter is Saving All Your Tweets, After All

first_imgForest fires in California, the plane landing on the Hudson river, the Mumbai hotel attacks – these historical events and many more have been recorded by everyday people on the ground, using Twitter. The historic record may be much, much richer as a result – but you can’t access it through search.twitter.com right now.Many people have worried that the inaccessibility of historical Twitter search results might mean that the messages weren’t being saved at all. Company co-founder Biz Stone told us otherwise by email today, though. Twitter is in fact saving all the tweets. You just can’t access them through search “right now.”We wrote to Twitter to inquire about the company’s stated plans to scrub forthcoming geolocation data from messages after 14 days. That plan is said to be aimed at avoiding subpoenas, though the publishing of the location data at all is opt-in in the first place.Scrubbed geolocation data after two weeks and no way to access historical information at all? That sounded like a pretty bum deal for a world-changing new communication platform. So we emailed to ask.This was the reply we received from Biz Stone: “We definitely save all the tweets although you’re right in noting that our search focuses more on newer content right now. And yes, the plan is to drop the coordinates after 14 days.“There you go. Now that Twitter is putting $100 million more into the bank, it would be great to see some of those resources dedicated to making information retrieval on the service a first class function. The future would be thankful.
