An eight week-old black lab mix puppy was stolen from the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League’s adoption center last week. The theft was spotted on surveillance cameras, as a man and a woman broke a lock at the facility to gain entrance.Rich Anderson, Executive Director and CEO of the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, said the missing puppy was not discovered until the next morning when the dog’s new owners came to pick up their new pup and it wasn’t there.Take a look at this surveillance video screen shot of the alleged thieves and see if you recognize the dog nappers.The rescue league is asking anyone with information to call the West Palm Beach Police Department.They are offering $500 for information leading to the puppy’s safe return. A Lake Worth Beach woman is still in shock after her dog was died pink and green during a visit to the groomer.Graziella Puleo intended for her dog Lola, a Golden Retriever and poodle mix, to get a buzz cut, teeth cleaned, nails trimmed and ears cleaned. Instead, Lola came out with dyed green eyebrows and pink ears.Puleo booked an appointment her dog to Amores Pet Salon Dog Grooming Day Care Boarding Spa in downtown Lake Worth Beach. Puleo says the problems didn’t end there. Lola’s eyebrows, eyelashes and whiskers were buzzed off and the dog appeared to have a burn around her belly and groin area, forcing her to take Lola to a vet to be treated for an infection.She said her nails were not cut, but instead ripped off. Her teeth were also left untouched.We reached out to the owner of Amores Pet Salon who admitted to dying the dog’s hair without being requested to do so.She said she wanted to do something nice for Lola’s owner and thought the surprise would make her happy.The owner gave Puleo a $150 refund and offered a complimentary future visit.

These include the European Boys’ Team Championships in Uppsala, Sweden and the Boys’ Home Internationals which will be staged in August at Killarney Golf Club in Ireland.Team manager Stephen Burnett said: “Throughout 2019, the performances from the boys have been outstanding with Conor’s results rightly earning a lot of praise and attention and the team once again winning the Home Internationals.“This is a new group which will gather for the 2019-20 season and we are hopeful that the lads fulfil their obvious potential in team competitions with England and in their development as individuals.“The focus is always on key targets such as the Europeans and the Home Internationals and we are confident that with this group of boys we have the talent and character to enjoy another terrific year.”MEET THE SQUADJACK BIGHAM (Harpenden GC – Hertfordshire): At 16 years of age, Jack tied 6th in the McGregor Trophy and 8th in the McEvoy Trophy in 2019.

By John Burton |RED BANK — A mid-morning crash of an SUV into the former Red Bank home of Visiting Nurse Association Health Group was continuing to snarl traffic into the early afternoon.A late model beige Chevrolet Tahoe, according to Red Bank police, traveling north on Riverside Avenue, ran into 176 Riverside Ave., a two-story structure located just south of the Route 35 traffic-signaled intersection. The crash occurred at approximately 10:20 a.m., according to police.The vehicle crashed through a window area, with the vehicle’s front portion became lodged inside the structure.According to Police Chief Darren McConnell, the SUV was being driven by an approximately 50-year-old male, accompanied by a female front-seat passenger in her 70s. The vehicle was registered to a Holmdel address. McConnell did not have their identities available.The two were transported to Riverview Medical Center to be treated for head and neck injuries that McConnell labeled “non-life threatening.”“It appears he just lost control of the vehicle,” McConnell said of the driver.The car accident attracted an unusual amount of media attention, with NJ State Police and Univision helicopters hovering overhead, and news crews from News12, CBS, NBC and other news outlets on the scene.The Middletown Emergency Services’ Special Services provided assistance and was bracing the building front facade to allow for the SUV to be removed, according to Red Bank Fire Marshal Stanley Sickels.That portion of the building was unoccupied at the time of the crash, Sickels said.The extent of the building’s damage was unknown at this point, he added.Emergency vehicles parked out front of the location, resulting in blocking one northbound traffic lane, backing up traffic on the heavily traveled Riverside Avenue.The location had been home to the Visiting Nurse Association until the organization relocated to Holmdel earlier this year.
By Jay Cook |Rising sea levels through the next century may have Two River area residents concerned, but now they can have a role in mitigating any future damages.Stemming from a late February workshop in Red Bank, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) launched an interactive web mapping tool last week for homeowners, business owners, and officials alike to identify areas of interest in 15 Two River area towns so education and flood prevention tactics can soon follow.The web project comes from the NJ Fostering Regional Adaption through Municipal Economic Scenarios (FRAMES) initiative, funded by a nearly $900,000 grant from the federal National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).Towns included in the NJ FRAMES program are Eatontown, Fair Haven, Highlands, Little Silver, Long Branch, Middletown, Monmouth Beach, Oceanport, Ocean Township, Red Bank, Rumson, Sea Bright, Shrewsbury, Tinton Falls and West Long Branch.Residents living in those towns now have the ability to sign onto the associated website, www.TwoRiversOneFuture.nj.gov, and explore an interactive map with predetermined areas of interest – police stations, fire stations, municipal buildings, to name a few.They can also drop pins on other places with local significance, like a popular business, a little league baseball field, or a beloved outdoor concert venue along the water.“While we have collected plenty of great data on at-risk areas in these communities, this effort will help ensure we are focusing our efforts on the right places, and those that matter most to residents,” said Ginger Kopkash, DEP’s assistant commissioner for land use, in a news release.She said DEP could implement different flood mitigation methods along the Atlantic Ocean coast, as well as the Navesink and Shrewsbury rivers. Those methods could be “green infrastructure, living shorelines and hardening of critical infrastructure that would better protect these places and their surrounding neighborhoods,” Kopash said.Working with residents has been the crux of this campaign, something that NJ FRAMES management said they set out to do from the start.“I think the important thing about getting the public involved is that they were the ones affected by the storm, and have had varying success in recovery from it as well, up and down the shore,” said Liz Semple, DEP manager of the coastal and land use planning office, at the Feb. 23 open house at the Two River Theater.The interactive map also overlays varying degrees of anticipated rising tide growth by the year 2100. According to an NJ FRAMES report in June, the likely range for sea level rise is 1.7 feet to 3.1 feet, with low emissions. With high emissions, that range expands to 2.4 feet to 4.5 feet.Using the interactive tool provided by NJ FRAMES, a 3-foot sea level rise would provide for significant changes to the Two River area.Most of the downtown business district in Highlands would be under water, spanning from Gravelly Point Road to Veterans Memorial Park.Numerous waterfront residences in Rumson, Monmouth Beach, Oceanport, and Little Silver, along the shores of the Shrewsbury River, could all be subject to flooding.Shrewsbury River marinas, restaurants, and homes along Ocean Avenue in Sea Bright could also possibly be affected by rising water levels.NJ FRAMES’ team will be meeting with residents and businesses over the next week to gather additional input for the project: Thursdays by the Sea, Long Branch, Aug. 10; Sounds at Sunset, Fair Haven, Aug. 11; Red Bank Community Block Party, Aug. 12; West End Farmer’s Market, Long Branch, Aug. 17; and Coffee Hour at Booskerdoo Coffee & Baking Co., Monmouth Beach, Aug. 18.This article was first published in the August 10-17, 2017 print edition of The Two River Times.
No team in the Murdoch Division wants to face high-flying Beaver Valley in the first round of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League playoffs — especially a Nelson Leafs franchise which has been sent to the golf course by the Nitehawks the past four seasons.The Leafs and the Grand Forks Border Bruins kept their respective hopes alive of not finishing in the dreaded Murdoch Division fourth place by skating to a 5-5-overtime tie Sunday afternoon at the NDCC Arena.
A West Coast Demerara businessman is ready to move to the courts since he believes that Police, without authority, are unlawfully forcing minibus operators to remove their ‘wrap designs’.The proprietor of Unstoppable Auto Sales, whose only name was given as Danny, explained his misery and noted that the minibuses are only designed to “catch the passengers’ eyes”.A few of the wrapped minibuses at the Square of the RevolutionHe explained that he has several buses that work on the West Bank and West Coast of Demerara; and in one instance, when a Police Officer stopped his driver, he said he did not care whether the colours of the wrap design were on the registration or not, he wanted to see a “plain bus”.On Friday, Danny posted that one of his minibuses was detained at the Vreed-en-Hoop Police Station simply because of an ‘XO’ design was at the front of the bus. He noted that his ‘fitness’ was even revoked for the modest design.The businessman claims this type of Police behaviour is unlawful, and he even had one of his colleagues consult a lawyer on the issue.When Guyana Times contacted that colleague, who gave his name as Justus, he related, “We have a couple of buses working on the road because of course that’s a source of income for us, and we are getting some issues with the Police because they are telling us that they don’t want this stripe and that stripe, and all the colours on the bus are on the registration and I don’t know why they are locking up these buses, and we are losing a lot of days’ work. “I made contact with my lawyer, and we were seeking to get some advice as to why (this is so), and he was saying that as far as he knows, there is no law which says that you cannot have more than one colour on your vehicle or so”.Justus further stated that hundreds of thousands of dollars were invested to make the buses attractive to passengers. He argued that now more money will be spent to remove those designs and respray the buses.Contacted, Police Public Relations Officer Jairam Ramlakhan said he was unable to say specifically which section of the law dictates that minibuses should be plain-coloured.He therefore referred this publication to Traffic Chief Ramesh Ashram, who also failed to say specifically which section of law provides for buses to be plain-coloured. Ashram would say only that the provisions for this initiative are in the Motor Vehicles and Road Traffic Act 51:02.As such, the businessman is gearing to file his lawsuit against the Guyana Police Force via his attorney. He is likely to secure the support of the scores of drivers whose minibuses have been seized over the past few weeks. Back in March, a campaign was implemented to strip all minibuses that had wrap designs. The defaulting vehicles were taken to the Brickdam Police Station.The acting Traffic Chief had estimated that over 30 minibuses had breached the traffic regulations by possessing these ‘wraps’.Meanwhile, the affected drivers have related that the initiative has affected their livelihood, as they continue to lose money while their minibuses are parked.Citizens who use the buses as sole source of transportation also expressed their concern, noting that when the minibuses were not functioning, it was difficult to get to their destinations. However, the acting Traffic Chief noted that this could be avoided if the traffic rules and regulations are followed.Following this episode, minibus operators had staged a protest calling for the Police to put an end to the campaign. They said they feel they are being harassed. The vibrantly coloured buses were registered to the following routes: Kitty-Campbellville (40), Stabroek-South (41), Georgetown-Timehri (42), Georgetown-Mahaica (44), Stabroek-Albert (45) and Stabroek-Sophia (48).

9 september 2003President Thabo Mbeki wrapped up a hectic schedule of meeting with ordinary South Africans with addresses to religious bodies on Sunday.On Saturday, Mbeki addressed the Jewish Board of Deputies in Johannesburg, assured them of the government’s continued efforts to stamp out negative attitudes towards the community.Later on Saturday, the President opened an inaugural convention of South African Hindu organisations in Durban, saying all religions had a role to play in rebuilding the country from the destructive apartheid years.On Sunday, Mbeki attended the 93rd anniversary celebrations of the Zion Christian Church (ZCC) – an organisation that boasts about four million followers across southern Africa – in Polokwane in Limpopo province.Although Mbeki did not address the gathering – in line with the Church’s policy of being non-politically aligned – a statement from his office reiterated the government’s stance that all religious groups have a role to play in fighting poverty, moral decay and underdevelopment.“We, as government, have a responsibility to all people who fall victim to marginalisation, fear and disempowerment, and we cannot allow any section of the community to plunge into a permanent sense of unease and displeasure,” Mbeki told the Jewish Board of Deputies, adding that Jewish people would always have a home in South Africa.Mbeki told the Hindu community that unlike the apartheid regime, the democratic government recognises all religions and believes that religious organisations must be at the forefront of inculcating religious and moral values in society.“Given our divided history, religious organisations have an important role to play in the reconstruction and development of our country, especially in the welfare and civil society sectors,” he said.Mbeki said the Hindu gathering was another tribute to Indian human rights activist Mahatma Ghandi, who fought for the betterment of humanity. “Mahatma Ghandi’s championship of the cause of the harijans teaches us that we must act in support of the poor and marginalised.”In a statement released ahead of Sunday’s ZCC ceremony, Mbeki said the ZCC and other African churches have an important role to play in efforts to promote an ethical, righteous and moral society.He added that the Church’s message of peace, Kgotso ga ebe le lona (Peace be with you), “provides an important lesson for all South Africans that together we can forge a peaceful country that can provide food, both material and spiritual, and a better life for all”.Source: BuaNews
