Once again we note, it is generally believed a price of eight dollars needs to be sustained for more than three months to instil confidence in producers to up their drilling programs. 22 parcels covering more than 15,000 hectares are expected to be on offer today, in the February sale of Oil and Gas land rights.- Advertisement -It will follow an encouraging January sale, which generated more than 13 million in bonus bids, almost double the amount of the January sale last year.However, today’s sale will have to do better than that to top last February’s sale of 17.6 million.In addition it’s not likely to come close, to the 2008 February sale which generated about 117 million.The price of natural gas yesterday dropped to 4.78 cents U.S.Advertisement We should find out today if the recent drop in natural gas prices, below five dollars per million BTU, has dampened the drilling interest of energy companies in Northeast BC.
Perhaps Nissan Open tournament director Tom Pulchinski should borrow the cap worn by Vijay Singh’s caddie, Paul Tesori, on the final day of the 2000 Presidents Cup. It read: “Tiger Who?” “It’s an excellent field,” said Pulchinski, the man charged with maintaining golf galleries in the Tiger-less tournament. “Anybody who’s interested in seeing PGA Tour golf at its finest can do that. “Phil Mickelson has a good following and since he hasn’t been here for a number of years, he’s going to be a very popular person to follow. “At a tournament like this, you can get up close to the players. You can watch them at the driving range. A lot of people have seen them on TV but not seen them in person.” The world’s top-ranked player won’t be in attendance for just the second time in his professional career. Yet, even with Tiger’s absence, there should be an abundance of good golf. Riviera Country Club traditionally has been home to some of the game’s greatest golfers. The L.A. Open, which later changed its name to the Nissan Open, was a hot spot for Ben Hogan, Byron Nelson, Jack Nicklaus, Fred Couples and the like. Even though it took Nelson 12tries to win here and Nicklaus never did, the stars always made sure to make Los Angeles a mainstay on their schedule. Usually, Tiger plays and Phil doesn’t. This year the Nissan doesn’t have No.1, but it has No.2 Furyk, No.3 Adam Scott, No.4 Ernie Els, No.5 Retief Goosen, No.6 Mickelson, No.7 Singh, No.8 Luke Donald and No.9 Padraig Harrington. Tenth-ranked Henrik Stenson is the other top-tier no-show. It’s not an even switch, but when the rest of the field is the best of the best, it might not be the worst thing that Woods is skipping the event for the first time since 2001. Organizers find themselves having to justify a field without Woods. But with this star-studded event, it’s not necessary. “Look, everyone wants Tiger in there,” Riviera general manager Michael Yamaki said. “I assume as players, they want him there too, because you want to go up against the best. He chose to do what he did, and we’re happy to have the field we do. Like anything else, when the king’s not there, all of a sudden it gives an opportunity for the next person to come up.” The next person could be one of the game’s brightest young stars, such as rookies Jeff Quinney or Anthony Kim, a Studio City product who is the tour’s youngest player at 21. The only Tiger sighting will be in Riviera’s pro shop, where a framed picture of him as a 16-year-old amateur, playing in his first event, hangs on the wall. When asked if the picture would come down since Woods won’t be playing, Yamaki said it would stay “until he wins the big one.” Once again this year, some other golfer will hold the trophy. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Frank Lampard made a name for himself with his exceptional goal tally at Chelsea and it looks like he has maintained his prolific scoring rate in MLS with New York City.The Blues all-time top scorer found the net after just 48 seconds on Friday night against DC United, although his side eventually succumbed to a 2-1 defeat.Lampard typically timed his run into the penalty area to perfection, doing well to rearrange his feet to steer the ball home after David Villa’s shot was saved.How much would Jose Mourinho love to have his old vice-captain back at Stamford Bridge now?
A Circuit Court judge has condemned five members of the travelling community for ‘taking the law into their own hands’ during an attack on a Donegal Traveller family at a funeral.Judge Rory McCabe made the comments after sentencing five men who pleaded guilty to charges of violent disorder in relation to a massive brawl that took place during a funeral ceremony in St Colman’s Church in Claremorris, Co Mayo, in 2011.The feud which took place in the grounds of the church at a funeral Mass on October 10, 2011, is said to be ongoing for the last 45 years between members of the five men’s family and a family in Donegal. Owen McDonagh of Saleen, Ballinrobe Road, Castlebar; Bernard McDonagh of 5 Knockthomas, Castlebar; Thomas McDonagh of 123 Manor Village, Castlebar; Gerard McDonagh of Saleen, Ballinrobe Road, Castlebar; and Charles McDonagh of 7 Garryduff, Castlebar, were before Castlebar Circuit Court for sentencing last week.Sergeant Regina Carley told the court that Mass started and members of the McDonagh family from Donegal were standing outside the church. When the defendants arrived at the church a ‘verbal assault’ on members of the Donegal McDonaghs ensued, with Bernard McDonagh shouting ‘let’s get it on. let’s get Owen Martin, he’ll do’.A number of fights took place with Gerard McDonagh and Charles McDonagh fighting members of the other family, while Bernard and Owen McDonagh were identified as having a major part in the incident. A slash hook, knife and hatchet were later recovered at the scene with one man subsequently having blood spurting from his head.Sgt Carley said people attending the funeral Mass feared for their own safety. A victim impact statement read out by State prosecutor Pat Reynolds detailed that the victim was now in ‘severe depression’ and was ‘frightened to answer the phone’.Bernard McDonagh took to the stand offering an apology to the victim’s family. “I’m sincerely sorry. I want to end this dispute today. There seems to be no stop to it,” said the 37 year-old.From the gallery, a member of the victim’s family could be heard rejecting Mr McDonagh’s apology. Before sentencing, Judge McCabe referred to the rejection saying ‘parties should think carefully about how they interact, and if the apology wasn’t accepted by the Donegal McDonagh’s they might take a different view if they were in the same position as the defendants’.The judge told the court that he could see how people would bring ‘flowers and Mass cards’ to a funeral but said there was ‘no conceivable reason for a slash hook, knife, and a hatchet’ to be brought.“This was pre-meditation at its most extreme,” added Judge McCabe.Owen, Thomas, Gerard and Charles McDonagh each received a two year prison term with the final year suspended, while Bernard McDonagh received a three year term with the final 18 months suspended.JAIL FOR GANG WHO ATTACKED DONEGAL TRAVELLER FAMILY AT FUNERAL was last modified: July 3rd, 2013 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:GANG WHO ATTACKED DONEGAL TRAVELLER FAMILY AT FUNERAL SENT TO JAILMcDonaghtraveller feud
