WASHINGTON – Rep. Charles Norwood Jr., a blunt-spoken Georgia Republican who sold his dental practice and ran for Congress at age 52, died Tuesday after battling cancer and lung disease. Norwood, 65, died at his home in Augusta, Ga., his spokesman said. House members debating the war in Iraq interrupted proceedings for two moments of silence in his honor. President George W. Bush, in a statement, described Norwood as “a good friend and a strong, spirited legislator who always stuck to his principles.” Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue called Norwood an “incredible example of strength and dedication” and ordered flags to be lowered at all state buildings. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

A feisty, tobacco-chewing conservative who loved to hunt and who railed against government bureaucracy, he beat Democratic incumbent Don Johnson in 1994 to become the first Republican to represent his eastern Georgia district since shortly after the Civil War. Norwood had a dry wit and rarely settled for diplomatic language. When a Democrat complained that Norwood cut off questioning at a mine-safety hearing last year, Norwood responded: “When you get in charge, you get to run the damn thing. Right now, you’re not.” He wasn’t afraid to criticize his own party when he thought it was veering off course. Last year he called Republicans who backed compromise immigration legislation “turncoats.”

SOUTH WHITTIER – The county Board of Supervisors on Tuesday are expected to authorize a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person who fatally shot a Norwalk man in December. The reward, to be voted on by supervisors at their regular meeting, is not the first to be offered in the murder of 21-year-old Paul Gomez, who was shot at an intersection in unincorporated South Whittier on Dec. 10, while he was riding in the passenger seat of a friends vehicle. Gomezs parents had offered a $1,000 reward in January. Paul Gomez was the second son the couple has lost to murder – both crimes so far unsolved, said his mother.

By The Associated Press KIEV, Ukraine – Ukraine’s Orange Revolution allies made a strong combined showing in Sunday’s parliamentary elections and looked poised to win a majority that could unseat the prime minister and steer the country more firmly onto a pro-Western course, an exit poll showed. The election was called early in an attempt to end a standoff between Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych and President Viktor Yushchenko and shake sense into the ex-Soviet nation’s politics after years of infighting. The independent poll showed Yanukovych’s bloc was the top vote-getter with 35.2 percent, but Yulia Tymoshenko, the fiery Orange Revolution heroine, followed closely with 31.5 percent.
AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Plaintiff Joaquin Aguilar Mendez filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court, alleging that Rivera, who was then a bishop in Puebla state, transferred a priest to Los Angeles in 1988 for nine months even though he knew abuse allegations had been lodged against him. The priest, Nicolas Aguilar Rivera, is no relation to the cardinal or the plaintiff. The judge’s ruling also dismisses claims against the Mexican Diocese of Tehuacan, where the cardinal was bishop at the time he transferred the priest. Rivera’s spokesman, Hugo Valdemar, told The Associated Press in Mexico City that the cardinal was pleased with the judge’s decision. “We are happy and satisfied that the judge confirmed what we have always said: This isn’t a case to be judged in the United States,” Valdemar said, noting the plaintiff had every right to present a complaint in Mexico. A lawsuit accusing Mexico City Cardinal Norberto Rivera of conspiring with Roman Catholic officials in the United States to shelter a pedophile priest was dismissed Tuesday. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Elihu M. Berle found Rivera could not be held accountable in a U.S. court because the plaintiff didn’t have enough evidence against him, said Mike Finnegan, the plaintiff’s attorney. “It was a legal technicality,” he said. “It didn’t reach any of the merits of the case and it didn’t get to the key issues in the case, which is Cardinal Rivera’s complicity in sending (the priest) to the United States as a child molester.” Steve Selsberg, an attorney representing the Mexican cardinal in Los Angeles, said the judge found no evidence of conspiracy after reviewing a year’s worth of discovery collected by attorneys from both sides. While it is The Associated Press’ policy not to identify people who allege sexual abuse, Mendez chose to come forward with his story. He said Tuesday that he was disappointed in the ruling, but planned to have his U.S. attorneys appeal the case.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

THEY have faces to melt the hardest of hearts.But someone decided to dump them in Mountcharles – and left them. Three of them managed to make it to the garden of a local woman who rescued them – she found two others later. “We arrived up today to collect the pups that seem to be collie x springers approx 9 weeks old. There are 4 females and 1 male,” said Ryan McCauley from Donegal Pet Rescue.“They seemed in quite good health, they had a wormy belly and wee bit nervous but other than that healthy. We looked around the area to see maybe a mother had been dumped with them but unfortunately there was no sign of her.“We walked around the local area and asked the neighbours if they had seen any dogs or unusual vehicles in the area but to no avail. We are hoping that these little cuties have wondered off by themselves but it is looking like someone dumped them in this location knowing they would be found rather than pick up the phone and ask a rescue organisation for help.“The pups were checked over and although two of them are a bit nervous of us they seem used to human contact so that puts the idea of being born wild out of the equation. “They got treated for worms and will get their vaccinations and chips in the next few days. We are pleading with the public for information on this case as it is quite strange to find healthy pups in an area where they will be found quickly.“We do get pups dumped that are unhealthy or too young to be away from the mum as the owner does want to look after them anymore but most people will call us for help.“We have had cases in the past were the pups were born in fields to a mum but these pups are used to human interaction and quite healthy so can’t be the case. We would like the public to please get in contact if they recognise theses pups or if they know the mum of these pups so we know she is safe and looked after.“The rescue centres are always under pressure but we will do everything in our power to help you especially young pups. There is no need to dump them off hoping they will be found. We have had no reports of missing pups or the rescue in the local area has had no reports of missing pups so we are assuming they have been dumped, but if these are your pups please get in contact with us. Can everyone please share so we can get the information we need on these pups and their mum. And please if you don’t want puppies then neuter your pets, dogs trust are running a free neutering and micro-chipping scheme for the month of July.” SHOCKING! HOW COULD ANYONE DUMP THESE PUPS? was last modified: July 15th, 2014 by John2Share 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:abandoned pupsdonegalDonegal Pet RescueMOUNTCHARLES
The Donegal branch of Diabetes Ireland was left disappointed following a meeting with the Department of Health and the HSE yesterday.The group had hoped for confirmation of a second diabetic care team at LUH but it was confirmed that this would not be feasible, and instead only one more Consultant Endocrinologist would be employed.Moreover, they were disappointed to learn that the newly advertised position for a Paediatric Consultant in Sligo University Hospital would only require the paediatrician to allocate 22 hours a month to diabetic care. Despite the disappointment, the group were delighted to hear that the HSE plans to reinstate a full-time dietician at LUH.Mr Paul Gillespie, speaking after the meeting said: “I was extremely disappointed over the lack of progress in addressing the serious crisis in Diabetes Care in Letterkenny University Hospital but would be following up all the relevant parties to ensure that the appropriate resources would be made available for diabetes services in Donegal”.Representatives from the Donegal branch of Diabetes Ireland along with Professor Hilary Hoey (Chairperson, Diabetes Ireland) and Dr Anna Clarke, Health Promotion & Research Manager, Diabetes Ireland), supported by Donegal politicians, met with Department of Health and HSE officials to discuss diabetes service developments in Donegal.The Minister for Health Simon Harris, who was to chair the meeting, was not available due to urgent pressing business in the Dáil but did meet the Diabetes Ireland delegation briefly in the hallway after the meeting and promised to discuss their concerns with his officials. The advocacy group had been seeking confirmation that a second Consultant Endocrinologist-led diabetes team for adult services would be made available for Letterkenny University Hospital, only to discover that the funding available would only employ a second Consultant Endocrinologist.A spokesperson says that they hoped a team of medical professionals, led by a second Consultant Endocrinologist, would be employed at LUH due to the amount of young adults transitioning from the paediatric diabetes service, making the already lengthy waiting time longer.Diabetes Ireland also highlighted the lack of dietetic services available for diabetes patients in the area, and the withdrawal of existing allocated diabetic-specific dietician time by management in Letterkenny University hospital over the past 6 months.They pointed out that a full-time dietician had been sanctioned over four years ago by the then Minister for Health, James Reilly TD, due to the impact on health for families in the critical need for carbohydrate counting for optimum daily glucose control.The delegation was informed, and welcomed, that a replacement dietetic post was now with the HSE National Recruitment Service and asked that the appointment be fast-tracked. In terms of paediatric diabetes services, it was confirmed that the vacant Paediatric Consultant post in Sligo University Hospital, which supports the Donegal Diabetes Insulin Pump therapy service, was also with the HSE National Recruitment Service.Diabetes Ireland was disappointed to hear that the post was again being advertised for a paediatrician into Sligo with a special interest in diabetes and would only entail a total of 22 hours per month of time allocated specifically to diabetic-care.A spokesperson for the group says: “This is not in keeping with the recommendations of the HSE approved National Model of Care for Paediatric Healthcare Services in Ireland or in keeping with the ‘Slainte – Future of Health Care Report’ (Sept 2017) and the prevention of the very serious complications for children and adolescents with diabetes. This post [in Sligo University Hospital] should allow 2.5 days per week allocated to the care of children and adolescents requiring diabetes/endocrinology support.“Diabetes Ireland is baffled as to why no paediatric endocrinologists (which is necessary for a Diabetes Centre of Excellence) had been applied for by the Saolta group given that there is a strategy to develop full diabetes centres of excellence in Sligo and Galway.” Diabetes Ireland is now seeking a further meeting the Saolta Management Group on all of these issues.Minister Joe McHugh TD added that there was need for clear lines of communication and action taken on all the points raised, which he and all Donegal representatives would pursue on behalf of the Diabetes Ireland Donegal branch.Diabetes Ireland “extremely disappointed” over “diabetes care crisis” at LUH following HSE meeting was last modified: November 24th, 2017 by Elaine McCalligShare 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:Diabetes IrelandletterkennyluhSaoltasligo university hospital
