first_imgBut tens of thousands of Valley commuters have found the Orange Line to be a godsend during morning and evening rush hours. Except for an occasional dip – during summer vacation and the winter holidays – the busway has averaged more than 20,000 daily boardings since shortly after it debuted Nov. 1, 2005. To meet the demand, Metro plans to experiment this summer with 65-foot-long buses. Each could hold 14 more passengers than are held by one of the 60-foot-long buses now in use. The MTA could eventually use 80-foot-long buses, boosting the capacity to that of rail lines. Averaging 35 mph, the Orange Line makes the 14-mile trip in about 40 minutes. By comparison, the Red Line subway averages 32 mph, taking 29 minutes to travel between North Hollywood and Union Station. The subway makes up time, however, as it accelerates to 70 mph traveling under the Santa Monica Mountains between Universal City and Hollywood, said MTA spokesman Marc Littman. Potential use the key Robert Rodine, who co-chairs the Valley Industry and Commerce Association’s transportation committee, heralded the proposed Ronald Reagan Freeway connection. Commuters from Simi Valley and Moorpark need more alternatives, he said. “If the Orange Line is attractive enough to them, they will perhaps exit the freeway, park their cars and ride the Orange Line the rest of the way,” he added. Daniel Blake, director of the San Fernando Valley Research Center at California State University, Northridge, said the link could ease freeway traffic and air pollution, but he questioned how frequently commuters would use the busway. “As long as it would be used and not running empty, I think it would be terrific,” Blake said. sue.doyle@dailynews.com (818) 713-3746 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Metropolitan Transportation Authority officials propose extending the busway along the former railroad right of way that the agency owns along Canoga Avenue – land now holding used-car dealerships and auto-body shops. The MTA has included $300,000 for community outreach as plans for the bus line shape up. Lures needed If approved by the MTA board, construction could start by 2009 and be completed in three years. But luring people out of cars and onto public transportation could be difficult unless they have to cope with a long commute, high gas prices or costly parking fees, said Brian Taylor, director of the Institute of Transportation Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles. “Why would they use it?” Taylor asked. “For people with automobiles, it has to be worth their while to make the switch, and the time savings has to be strong.” The continuing popularity of the Orange Line has spurred MTA efforts to extend the 14-mile busway and connect residents living outside the San Fernando Valley with the hugely popular “subway on wheels.” A $6 million study is being conducted on a plan to extend the line – which now runs between Woodland Hills and North Hollywood – northward to the Ronald Reagan Freeway in Chatsworth. Transportation officials hope the connection would entice commuters from Santa Clarita or Ventura County to park their cars and climb aboard. “We’re trying to be better than cars,” said Walt Davis, Metro’s transportation planning manager for the San Fernando Valley. “We’re trying to get you from Point A to Point B faster.” Researchers in the multimillion-dollar study – expected to be completed by August 2008 – also are studying whether the busway can be extended north along Canoga Avenue to the Chatsworth Metrolink Station and whether there’s land near the freeway for a Park and Ride lot. last_img read more

first_imgA free seminar is to look at Donegal’s remarkable success in the Tidy’s Towns competition over the years.The County Donegal Heritage Office and the Donegal County Museum, Cultural Services, Donegal County Council in association with the County Donegal Heritage Forum and The Heritage Council will host the seminar on ‘Heritage in Tidy Towns’ in the Regional Cultural Centre in Letterkenny on Saturday, March 24 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.County Donegal has enjoyed success in the ‘Tidy Towns’ competition in the past with Glenties winning the overall title in 1958, 1959, 1960, 1962 & 1995 and Malin Town winning the overall title in 1970 & 1991. Participating towns and villages in the ‘Tidy Towns’ competition are awarded marks on the built environment, landscaping, wildlife and natural amenities, overall development approach, litter control, tidiness, waste minimisation, residential areas, roads/streets/back areas and overall general impression.The ways in which ‘Tidy Towns’ participants address built, cultural and natural heritage issues in County Donegal’s towns and villages influence the marks they are awarded and their performance in the ‘Tidy Towns’ competition.“Every town and village in County Donegal has a built, cultural and natural heritage that sets it apart from other settlements.“The heritage of a town or village contributes significantly to its character and appearance. It reinforces our sense of place and reflects our sense of identity,” explained Joseph Gallagher, County Donegal Heritage Officer. “Our heritage contributes to the attractiveness of the towns and villages in which we live, work and visit, and to the ability of communities to attract visitors and tourists.“The built environment of our streetscapes is constantly changing and aspects of our heritage and village character can be lost in the process. The civic pride demonstrated by ‘Tidy Towns’ committees can do much to conserve the heritage of our towns and villages.”The aims of the free seminar are to: (i) raise awareness of the built, cultural and natural heritage of towns and villages in County Donegal; (ii) highlight the role that heritage plays in contributing to the character of our towns, villages and their streetscapes and in creating a sense of place; (iii) promote best practice in the care, conservation, management and maintenance of our heritage; and (iv) identify ways in which ‘Tidy Towns’ committees can protect, conserve and enhance the built, cultural and natural heritage of towns and villages.The event is aimed at existing ‘Tidy Towns’ committees as well as community groups, heritage groups, historical societies, communities and individuals interested in participating in the ‘Tidy Towns’ competition.Guest speakers at the free seminar will include: • Colm Murray, Architecture Officer with The Heritage Council who will provide advice on the conservation of the built heritage and streetscapes in our towns and villages, and outline the support available from the Heritage Council;• Sharon Eastwood from Woodrow Sustainable Solutions and a national adjudicator in the ‘Tidy Towns’ competition who will address the management of natural heritage and biodiversity in ‘Tidy Towns’;• Suzanne Tinney, Waste Awareness Officer, Donegal County Council who will give a presentation on waste minimisation for ‘Tidy Towns’;• Gordon Gaffney, Manager of the Investment Unit of Fáilte Ireland who will talk about the importance of heritage to our tourism industry and outline the new Fáilte Ireland ‘Tourism Towns’ initiative; and • Debbie Nesbitt, a National Adjudicator for the ‘Tidy Towns’ competition, who will provide an adjudicator’s perspective on the competition and will give advice on the adjudication process.The seminar will conclude with an open questions-and-answers session with the guest speakers. The free seminar will be opened by Dinny McGinley T.D., Minister of State, Department of Arts, Heritage & the Gaeltacht. The seminar is an action of the County Donegal Heritage Plan and is funded by Donegal County Council and The Heritage Council.The seminar is free and open to everyone but places are limited so early booking is advised.

first_img The critically acclaimed drama “Brokeback Mountain,” starring Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal, rode into the top 10 in its second weekend after distributor Focus Features expanded it to 69 theaters in 21 markets from just a handful the previous weekend. The love story between two cowboys finished in eighth place after taking in an estimated $2.4 million. It had an outstanding per-screen average of $34,194, by far the highest of any film in release. “Forget about it just playing to the gay community, it’s playing to everyone,” said Focus Features distribution head Jack Foley. “It’s a phenomenon.” “Brokeback,” which has taken in $3.3 million so far in limited release, appears to be on its way to setting a new box office benchmark for a gay-themed film. Foley said audiences have ranged from “baby boomers in the suburbs to the smart set in downtown urban areas to seniors in places like La Jolla and Phoenix, and the gay community is continuing to go aggressively.” Because of its unexpected popularity, Focus is scrapping its original idea to continue to open the film slowly and plans to begin adding theaters Friday in the suburbs of New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco, where the film has played through the roof. “This is lightening in a bottle, and we have to maintain the rollout in concert with the heat on the film,” Foley said. “We have to see if exhibitors can work with us, if they have screens available. I think a lot of them will make room.” Also in limited release, Sony Pictures Entertainment’s “Memoirs of a Geisha” expanded to 52 locations in 15 cities. It managed to earn an impressive $1.2 million, with a terrific per-screen average of $23,748 and a 12th-place finish. “Geisha” will expand to 1,400 theaters Friday, said Rory Bruer, Sony’s president of distribution. “Exits have been terrific, and we’re very excited heading into Friday,” Bruer said. In all, the weekend’s top 12 films took in $121.2 million, 22 percent more than 2004’s top dozen. But year-to-date revenue remains about 5 percent behind last year, according to Exhibitor Relations Co. “This is the way we want to finish the year,” Dergarabedian said. “You have a mix out there right now with ‘King Kong’ and ‘Narnia” leading the charge as we expected. Then ‘Brokeback’ doing $34,000 per theater tells you that there are movies for every audience. It’s what moviegoers should love about the holiday season.” Dan Laidman, (213) 978-0390 dan.laidman@dailynews.com TOP MOVIES Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Exhibitor Relations Co. Inc. Final figures will be released today. 1. “King Kong,” $50.15 million. 2. “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe,” $31.2 million. 3. “The Family Stone,” $12.7 million. 4. “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,” $5.9 million. 5. “Syriana,” $5.5 million. 6. “Walk the Line,” $3.6 million. 7. “Yours, Mine & Ours,” $3.4 million. 8. “Brokeback Mountain,” $2.4 million. 9. “Just Friends,” $1.95 million. 10. “Aeon Flux,” $1.7 million. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake Kong’s box office revenue jumped 40 percent from Friday to Saturday, suggesting strong word-of-mouth traffic that could set it up for a robust holiday run. Second-place “Narnia” weathered the arrival of “Kong” well with an estimated weekend gross of $31.2 million. The film has now taken in $112.5 million to date and is well-positioned to continue to perform solidly through the holidays. “To hit $100 million and to get it in the ninth day is great,” said Chuck Viane, president of Disney’s Buena Vista Distribution division. “I think every day this week you will see us ramp up a little.” The 20th Century Fox new release “The Family Stone,” starring Sarah Jessica Parker, Diane Keaton and Dermot Mulroney, opened in third place with an estimated gross of $12.7 million. “It’s a great start,” said Bruce Snyder, Fox’s president of distribution. “Fifty-one percent of the audience was females over the age of 25, and that’s usually the toughest audience to get out on a Friday night.” “King Kong” roared loud enough and beat his chest hard enough at the nation’s movie theaters over the weekend to grab the fourth-biggest December opening in history with three-day ticket sales of $50.15 million, according to estimates released Sunday by Universal Pictures. “Kong,” directed by Peter Jackson, opened below expectations Wednesday but rebounded to do blockbuster business on Saturday, achieving a five-day total of $66.2 million. Only the second and third chapters of Jackson’s “Lord of the Rings” trilogy and Disney’s “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe” had bigger December bows. “Obviously there were huge expectations placed on this movie,” said box office analyst Paul Dergarabedian, president of Exhibitor Relations Co., a box office tracking firm. “This is a word of mouth film that’s going to play for many weeks to come. This one is not about a sprint to $100 million.” last_img read more

first_imgSt Michaels got their league campaign back-on-track with a hugely impressive victory over league champions St Eunans at O’Donnell Park earlier this afternoon. Colm McFadden was in stunning form as St Michaels powered past the challenge of St Eunans earlier this afternoon.St Michaels recorded a comprehensive 3-15 to 1-09 victory over the Letterkenny men who struggled to cope with the lively inside forward line of Colm McFadden, Oisin Langan and Michael Langan.17 year-old Michael Langan scored 1-2 from play, and was a constant menace to the St Eunans back-line. Oisin Langan expertly dispatched his two goals and was lively throughout the game, while Colm McFadden was in irresistible form.McFadden scored some sensational points particularly in the second-half, and the St Eunans defence were helpless in their attempts to stop the 2012 All-Star.The first-half was a close affair with both sides enjoying lengthy spells of dominance.Rory Kavanagh was excellent in the first-half and scored 1-2 in the opening period, but a goal from Michael Langan ensured St Michaels led by a point at the interval. In what was an excellent opening half of football, the only contentious moment was the decision by the referee Shaun McLaughlin to award Michael Gallagher with a black card.Gallagher was adjudged to have cynically dragged down Rory Kavanagh as the Donegal star powered down on goal.It appeared that Gallagher made a genuine attempt to win the ball and correct the decision would’ve been to award the free.The decision to show Gallagher the black card angered the large following of St Michaels supporters who felt the decision was harsh and unnecessary.However, once Oisin Langan found the net ten minutes into the second-half there was no way back for St Eunans as St Michaels powered on. St Michaels had a number of impressive performers on show, with Christy Toye, Ciaran Gallagher, Antoin McFadden and Michael Cannon controlling the game from the middle sector of the pitch.For St Eunans Rory Kavanagh and Eamon Doherty performed well, but Maxi Curran will be worried by his side’s collapse in the second-half.St Michaels will be delighted with the victory and the manner of the performance, especially after losing both fixtures last weekend to Ardara and Malin respectively.ALL COUNTY LEAGUE DIVISION ONE: ST MICHAELS IMPRESSIVE AS THEY POWER PAST ST EUNANS was last modified: June 8th, 2014 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:GAAnewsSportlast_img read more

first_imgFurther pressure has been mounted on the Government to finally sign off on a Mica Redress Scheme at the next cabinet meeting this Tuesday. Senator Pádraig Mac Lochlainn says the scheme should be fully funded by the state as is the case with Pyrite Resolution Scheme.Last week, Joe Morgan, Chairman of the Mica Action Donegal committee, called on homeowners affected by the block defect to come together and support planned action in Dublin.  Speaking on Sunday, Senator Mac Lochlainn said: “There can be no more excuses.“The cabinet must finally sign off on a redress scheme for the thousands of Donegal householders affected by the mica defective concrete blocks.“I have met with a huge number of people across north Donegal over the last number of weeks in advance of the local and European elections on May 24th.“So many families are affected by these crumbling blocks and they have waited for far too long for a scheme to help them make their homes safe”. “A clear message that I am also receiving from those local families is that they consider any suggestion by the government of a percentage financial contribution as deeply unfair, considering that over 1000 families in Dublin and north Leinster have had their homes made safe under the Pyrite Resolution Scheme without being asked to make a financial contribution.“I have relentlessly raised this with the responsible Minister, Damien English and indeed, recently, with An Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar in the Seanad.“This Tuesday’s cabinet meeting must be the one that finally does the right and fair thing.”‘Time for cabinet to sign off on Mica scheme’ – Mac Lochlainn was last modified: May 12th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare 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)last_img read more

first_imgBrentford meet Newcastle on Saturday for the first time since a League Cup tie in September 2001. Here are five potential battles we think might be all-important at St. James’ Park.John Egan v Dwight GayleBrentford’s summer capture began his career at Newcastle’s local rivals Sunderland, but never made a first-team appearance. He has played every minute for the Bees so far this season but will have his hands full against Gayle, who has scored seven goals in nine league games.Scott Hogan v Jamaal LascellesHogan can match Gayle’s tally, albeit in 11 games, and will represent Brentford’s primary threat to a Newcastle defence that is prone to the odd lapse. Lascelles has been made Newcastle captain and is one of only three players to have featured in every league game so far, with Rafael Benitez keen to rotate.Ryan Woods v Jonjo ShelveyWoods and Shelvey will arguably be the two best passers of the ball on the pitch, both playing the ‘quarterback’ role and setting the forward players away. Bees man Woods was an unused substitute against Wigan, having been suspended for the 4-1 win over Reading, but is expected to return to the line-up.Andreas Bjelland v Matt RitchieWith Callum Elder ruled out with knee ligament damage, and summer signing Rico Henry still recovering from explorative surgery on a dislocated shoulder, Bjelland will continue to cover at left-back. Along with Gayle, Ritchie has been Newcastle’s most impressive attacking player this season.Dean Smith v RafaelBenitezThis time last year, Benitez and Smith were in wildly different jobs – at Real Madrid and Walsall respectively. Now they meet on equal terms with just four points separating the two sides. Smith was recently linked with the Aston Villa job – he could further enhance his reputation by outsmarting ex-Chelsea boss Benitez.  Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
