Instead, the gang members shot him in the back of the head and left his body on Miller Place Beach, where it was discovered by a beachcomber two weeks later, according to investigators.Lopez faces a possible sentence of up to life in prison, if convicted.last_img read more

Stats show we do need more gun laws

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion How many of the firearms in these categories are semi-automatic rifles, if any, isn’t clear.Based on the complete statistics that Mr. Kingsley chose to cherry pick, one thing is crystal clear: 9,616 murders, or 71 percent of the murders committed in this country in 2015, were committed by people with guns, and that percentage has been slowly but steadily increasing, up from 67 percent in 2011.These are the statistics that are used by someone trying to prove that we don’t have a gun problem and “more gun laws are not a solution we need.”Really?George FerroSchenectady  More from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationSchenectady’s Lucas Rodriguez forging his own path in dance, theater, musicSchenectady man dies following Cutler Street dirt bike crashFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen? After reading Don Kingsley’s March 19 letter, “More gun laws are not a solution we need,” I feel compelled to respond to his total misrepresentation of facts.Mr. Kingsley uses the FBI-published statistics on murder in the United States to make his point that guns, specifically semi-automatic weapons, are not a problem.The only statistic he gives regarding firearms is that 252 murders were committed by rifles. Here are the complete statistics as listed on the FBI site: Total murders committed in 2015 — 13,455. Of those murders, 9,616 (more than 71 percent) were committed by firearms.The breakdown of firearms used is as follows: handguns, 6,447; rifles, 252; shotguns, 269; other guns, 171; firearms type not stated, 2,477.  Mr. Kingsley assumes that “rifles” used are semi-automatic, but makes no mention of the “other guns” used and “firearms type not stated,” or more than 27 percent of firearm murders.In fact, he makes no mention of any murders committed by firearms other than rifles.last_img read more

TPT Declares Force Majeure at Richards Bay Terminal

first_imgSouth African terminal operator Transnet Port Terminals (TPT) has declared Force Majeure at its terminal facilities in Richards Bay following the strong storm that hit the region on Tuesday, October 10.TNT said that the decision was made due to the damage caused by extreme weather conditions which have impacted terminal operations.“These unforeseen incidents are beyond the control of TPT and TPT has no option but to invoke the provisions of the force majeure clauses in TPT’s commercial agreements and Standard Trading Terms and Conditions,” the terminal operator said.“Any claims arising herefrom will, therefore, be dealt with as such in terms of the applicable contractual agreements and Standard Trading Terms and Conditions.”The Richards Bay terminal, handling bulk and break bulk cargo, is situated in KwaZulu-Natal, a coastal South African province, which has been declared a disaster area by Premier Willies Mchunu after the storm that devasted parts of the province.The “mega storm” has caused severe damages to local roads, bridges, and utility infrastructure, according to local media.The heavy weather has seen winds reach the strength of up to 50 knots South Westerly at peak in places, and heavy rain causing flash floods.The Port of Durban was forced to shut down operations to marine traffic as several vessels got grounded, including one containership that drifted into the mouth of the port, blocking its entrance.Based on the latest update from Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA), progress has been made in clearing obstructions from the seabed of the port, bringing safety of navigation of vessels to 95%.Previous reports indicated that there were about three containers believed to have been lost into the water with the exact position unknown, posing a danger to navigation within the vicinity.“The latest results of the sounding surveys that were conducted indicate that there is no obstruction on the seabed that could pose risk to navigation along the Durban Container Terminal: Pier 1. However, sounding surveys are still in progress along the C-Shed area and in the interest of ensuring safe navigation of vessels, vessel movement is still suspended in this area,” the port authority said.Recovery operations and supporting terminal operators to restore normality are still underway.last_img read more

Under this JAO, a vehicle is colorumunder the following circumstances: Operators and drivers of colorumvehicles face stiffer penalties under Joint Administrative Order (JAO) No.2014-01 of the Department of Transportation. LTO-6 observed that colorum vehiclesusually operate during special occasions when lots of people travel. * disqualification of the operator –in case of a corporation, all its stockholders and directors – from operatingany kind of public land transportation * a PUV with suspended or cancelledCertificate of Public Convenience (CPC) and the Decision/Order of suspension orcancellation is executory * for trucks – P200,000 * a PUV with expired CPC and without apending application for extension of validity timely filed before the Board The penalties spelled out under JAONo. 2014-01 for the first offense are the following: PENALTIES “LTO-6 director Roland Ramos stressesthe importance of safe travel this Halloween. The public should avoid colorumvehicles.

In determining the frequency ofoffenses, the LTFRB counts offenses against operators and not against aparticular motor vehicle or CPC. “Mostly, sila nagagwa kon kaagahon and like sining Undas, nagahingalit,”said Otayde. Hence, the second apprehension of avehicle belonging to the same operator, regardless of whether the first andsecond vehicle apprehended are included in the same or different CPCs, shall becounted as second offense. Also, if a private motor vehicleoperating as a PUV but without proper authority from the LTFRB is apprehended,the LTFRB shall, in addition to the abovementioned fines, impounding andpenalty, disqualify the registered owner – in case of a corporation, all itsstockholders and directors – from operating any kind of public landtransportation.

Lady Bulldogs Outlast Lady Tigers In 2-OT

first_imgThe Batesville Lady Bulldogs improved to 4-3 on the season and 3-1 in the EIAC after a 2OT Shootout win over the host Lawrenceburg Lady Tigers. In the first half, both teams battled for possession in the middle of the field for most of the game. Both defenses held strong and the goalkeeping was phenomenal for both sides. Lawrenceburg was able to take 7 shots in the half as Olive Cerniglia made 3 saves. Batesville had possession in their offensive third but just couldn’t connect that last pass to lead to goal. Ellie Cassidy had the best chance of the half with a rifled free kick that one bounced the keeper as she bobbled the shot initially but was able to get on top of it as the Batesville forwards crashed the goal. In the second half, both teams mounted several attacks and ended the half with 4 shots a piece. Batesville’s best chance came in the middle of the half as Lauren Gutzwiller got free on the left side and tried to chip the keeper as she came out for the breakaway but the shot sailed just over the top of the goal. Lawrenceburg hit a deep free kick and had another driven shot that Cerniglia was able to make quality saves on to keep the game scoreless. After two 7-minute overtime periods, the score remained knotted at 0. It was time for a penalty shootout and both teams have been in this position already this season. Lawrenceburg went first and drilled the shot into the side net. Liz Heidlage stepped up for Batesville and Lawrenceburg’s GK was able to push the shot into the post and the shot bounced out. Cerniglia came up big to turn the momentum back to Batesville as she got her hands on a high shot and pushed it over the bar. Ellie Cassidy stepped up and drilled a shot into the back of the net to make it 1-1 after 2 shooters. Cerniglia came up big with a diving save on Lawrenceburg’s 3rd PK. Carlie Werner confidently stepped up and shot it opposite of the keeper and into the side net. After another Lawrenceburg make, Olivia Knueven looked to put Batesville up 3-2. She did just that as she slipped the ball just inside the post. Lawrenceburg’s 5th and final shooter was in a must make situation and her shot ricochet off the crossbar. Coach Hartman commented on the team shutout saying, “It was a great team defensive effort to keep the shutout in regulation. Olive was a force in goal both during regulation and PK’s coming up with huge saves.”Batesville will be back in action at home on Thursday as they take on the Columbus East Lady Olympians. The JV game will start at 5:30 with a varsity kickoff around 7:00. The JV girls soccer team faced off against the Lawrenceburg Tigers Tuesday evening. The Bulldogs took an early lead with a long shot by Allie Savage from Maggie Weberding. Shortly after Savage’s goal, Bella Britch scored with a well placed shot assist coming from Jade Kopp. Batesville went into half time leading 2-0. The Tigers came out with a vengence and scored a quick 2 goals. The Bulldogs responded with a goal from Laney Flynn assisted by Britch, who kept high pressure and won the ball from the Tiger’s defense. Unfortunately,  Batesville tired out and lost their marks a couple times. This allowed Lawrenceburg to score two more times, taking the score to 4-3. The Bulldogs fell to the Tigers at the end of regulation time. Courtesy of Bulldogs Coach Kyle Laker.last_img read more
