Westjet Grande Prairie Expansion

first_imgAt a time, when many North America airlines citing skyrocketing fuel costs are trimming routes and suspending flights, WestJet is expanding its Peace Region service.The Calgary-based airline is responding to pressure from Calgary corporations and, adding direct year round service to Grande Prairie this fall.WestJet already flies directly to Grande Prairie out of Edmonton but, its service to Calgary includes a stop at Edmonton International.- Advertisement -The airlines public relations manager, Robert Palmer, says this region’s strong oil patch based economy is, driving the increased demand for direct service to Calgary.However, WestJet also plans on adding direct flights from Calgary to Kamloops and, increasing the number of flights to the airlines existing network of sunspot destinations.In this case, it cites as service increase factors the strong loonie and, the fact that an increasing number of Canadians own property, in the U.S. and the Caribbean.Advertisementlast_img read more

Imus firing may jeopardize charity

first_imgImus said he and his wife, Deirdre, are round-the-clock surrogate parents to the youngsters who spend a week at the property, nearly half of whom are from minority groups and 10 percent are black. “There’s not an African-American parent on the planet who has sent their child to the Imus Ranch who didn’t trust me and trust my wife,” he said on his show. “And when these kids die, we don’t just go to the white kid’s funeral.” Kansas horseman Rob Phillips says he still plans to give the ranch proceeds from a 500-mile charity race he’s staging this fall. But Phillips worries that without Imus’ radio forum, the ranch and other charities will suffer. Stamp said donations may increase in the short term because of the heightened attention – “the celebrity factor ratcheted up to a new level.” The Imus show’s annual two-day fundraising radiothon, benefiting the ranch and two charities that refer children to it, had raised more than $2.3 million as of Friday, according to Deirdre Imus, who hosted Friday’s show. But in the long term, Stamp predicted the firing would cause “irreparable harm.” The ranch’s list of contributors is not public information, but it has relied heavily on corporate contributions. The Reader’s Digest Foundation gave $1 million seven years ago, Imus has said, and American Express made a one-time, $250,000 donation nine years ago. Neither company is a contributor now, representatives said. General Motors Corp. said Friday it would continue donating Chevrolet Suburbans for the ranch. The Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey provides the doctors, nurses and “child life specialists” who attend every ranch session. “While there is no excuse for these comments, we cannot overlook all of the good he has done for families of Bergen County and across the nation,” the medical center said in a statement. The nearly 4,000-acre ranch, at the foot of a mesa about 50 miles from Santa Fe, features a re-creation of the main street of a 19th-century Western town, a swimming pool, an indoor horse-riding arena, an outdoor rodeo arena, and barns. Kids between 10 and 17 who have cancer or serious blood disorders, or who have lost siblings to sudden infant death syndrome, spend seven days at the ranch – in the summer, when Imus would broadcast from a studio there – at no cost to their families. They do daily chores, learn to ride and care for horses, and help feed cattle, sheep, buffalo, chickens, goats and donkeys. They stay in the main ranch house, a 14,000-square-foot adobe hacienda that the Imuses describe as an “architectural masterpiece.” The menu is vegan: no meat, fish, poultry or dairy products are served. It’s an expensive operation. The ranch hosted 90 children from March 2005 through February 2006 and spent $2.5 million – or about $28,000 a child – according to its most recent federal tax filings. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

RIBERA, N.M. – Don Imus’ banishment from the public airwaves also deprives him of a critical platform to raise money for the sprawling Imus Ranch, where children with cancer and other illnesses get a taste of the cowboy life. Before he was fired last week for calling the Rutgers University women’s basketball team “nappy-headed ho’s,” Imus pointed to the northern New Mexico ranch to make his case that he is “a good person who said a bad thing.” With Imus out of a job, some wonder whether the pipeline to charity money will eventually dry up. Just as corporate sponsors backed away from his radio show, “I think you’ll see a similar effect on the charity, where the corporate donors will find a less hot-button charity to support,” said Trent Stamp, president of Charity Navigator, a New Jersey-based charity watchdog group. last_img read more

West Ham turned down the chance to sign Yaya Toure this summer, insists Pellegrini

first_img Yaya Toure won three Premier League titles, one FA Cup and two League Cups in eight years with Manchester City. He also won the Champions League and two LaLiga crowns with Barcelona 3 He was subsequently linked with a move to team-up with his former Blues manager at West Ham, but Pellegrini decided to look elsewhere.Toure’s agent Dimitry Seluk this week aimed a dig at the bottom-of-the-table Hammers, when announcing on Twitter that Toure was having a medical in London. 3 It’s not West Ham, 100%. Yaya is a champion. The last place is not for him 😃 https://t.co/eDGeI0EvFf— Dimitry Seluk (@dmitriseluk) August 28, 2018It has since been claimed he has agreed to rejoin former club Olympiacos, having undergone his medical with the Greek giants in London this week.But responding to Seluk’s barb, Pellegrini, who brought nine new players to the London Stadium this summer, said: “The words of the agent of Yaya were unfortunate.“I spoke with Yaya, I know how I appreciate him as a person, as a player.“I think he is a very good player. In the moment that we were doing our squad list, that position was covered by other players.“We needed money to bring in other positions, so I explained to Yaya clearly why he cannot come here but I hope he will find a good club, a big club, because he is a very good player. “I spoke with Yaya. He wanted to stay in England. When I was at Manchester City, he received an offer away from China, but he always told me he wants to stay here in England.“He continues to try to be here. I suppose West Ham was one option. For me as a manager also. But unfortunately that position was covered by other players.”West Ham face Wolves on Saturday desperate to pick up their first points of the season following three straight defeats.center_img Pellegrini added: “It’s the second game at home, we lost the first one against Bournemouth so of course we must win this one.“We knew before we start the season before we started we would have tough fixtures, we need points at home.“We made mistakes in the last home game but now we cannot allow to repeat that.”Striker Marko Arnautovic is fit despite picking up a knee injury against Arsenal last weekend. 3 Marko Arnautovic is expected to be fit for this weekend’s clash against Wolves West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini has hit back at Yaya Toure’s agent and claimed he turned down the chance to sign the former Manchester City star this summer.It was claimed Toure was looking to remain in the Premier League after leaving the Etihad Stadium this summer following an eight-season spell at City.last_img read more

`I’m thankful to be alive’

first_imgDOWNEY – Ask teenagers what they are thankful for, and you’ll probably get a list of their favorite video games and clothes – and maybe something deeper, like family and friends.Most of the boys and girls who spent Thanksgiving Day in custody at Los Padrinos Juvenile Hall on Thursday gave a different answer.“I’m thankful to be alive,” said 18-year-old inmate Francisco, who spoke in a soft voice as he filed out of the detention facility’s small chapel following a special holiday Mass. “If I weren’t here, I’d probably be dead.”Most of the other wards in the detention center’s special section for high-risk offenders also said they were grateful for surviving their violent pasts – and they expressed that sentiment in cards they created for relatives who will visit Sunday.As a special treat for the holiday, the wards – ages 13 to 18 – were allowed to sleep about an hour later than the usual wake-up time of 6:15 a.m. Also, no school was held Thursday. Normally, their classes begin at 8 a.m. and go until 3 p.m.The youths also were allowed to participate in recreational activities for most of the day, including basketball, television, and time for writing letters and making phone calls home.For about 200 youths who attend the institution’s Catholic services, a special Mass was held.Church services at Los Padrinos, whether Catholic or Protestant, are regularly attended, said Sister Theresa, who has worked at the facility for more than 30 years.But the religious services are also a time when Los Padrinos’ staff is on high alert. Regardless of their gang affiliations, the youths celebrate services together inside the Grace Shepherd Chapel. Even a hint of problems between the wards can cause the offenders to be expelled from the chapel, officials said.As evening rolled around, the youngsters feasted on a traditional Thanksgiving meal. Staff members arrived early Thursday morning to cook two dozen turkeys and prepare gallons of mashed potatoes, corn bread stuffing, pumpkin pie and punch.“Holidays are good and bad for them,” said Supervising Officer Jesus Pinado. “They’re happy to have the recreation time, but they’re also more likely to act up, get in fights. They’re not at home, and they get depressed.” tracy.manzer@presstelegram.com(562) 499-1261 AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

‘Report unfair food pricing’

first_img31 January 2003The Food Price Monitoring Committee has introduced a toll-free number in a bid to encourage consumers to report acts of predatory food pricing in the food production and supply sector.The toll-free number – 0800 203 216 – administered by the offices of the National Agricultural Marketing Council, is operational between 8am and 4pm on weekdays. An e-mail address, foodprice@namc.co.za, is also in place for this purpose.The Committee was established to investigate unjustified food price hikes and seeks to protect consumers from other irregular practices.Government instituted the strong eight-member committee – headed by Professor Johan Kirsten from the University of Pretoria and deputy chairperson Fikile Mazibuko of the University of Zululand – to ensure transparency around retail prices and their relation to actual costs.Other members include Josephine Hlophe-Nhlapo (Congress of SA Trade Unions), Lumkile Mondi (Transnet), Nonia Rampomane (National Consumer Forum) and Professors Johann Potgieter, Sbu Nkomo and Herman van Schalkwyk.According to Kirsten, consumers form an integral part of the probe, hence it is important that they become actively involved. “We want the public to be the eyes of the Food Price Monitoring Committee,” he said.The Committee’s terms of reference include monitoring the pricing of basic foodstuffs, investigating any sharp or unjustified price increases, determining the competitiveness of production operations, investigating price formation mechanisms within the value chain of basic foodstuffs, and recommending required productivity improvements.It is also expected to investigate collusive, discriminatory or unfair business practices in the basic food value chain, investigate and make recommendations on market inefficiencies and distortions, and investigate incidents of predatory pricing and monopolistic tendenciesSource: BuaNewslast_img read more
