Emergency Services Launch Appeal To The Public To Help Prevent Grass Fires

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to LinkedInLinkedInLinkedInScottish Fire And Rescue and Police Scotland are appealing to the public to take extra care during this period of hot weather to avoid any accidental grass fires.During hot and dry weather the risk of grass fires increases, but by being alert to the risk you can help prevent accidental fires.A Fire at Kelloholm this weekend was thought to have been started by discarded cigarette.When in the countryside• Making sure any barbecue or disposable barbecue is only used in a suitable location and is extinguished properly after use• Extinguishing cigarettes completely and not throwing cigarette ends on the ground• Not leaving bottles or glass in woodland – sunlight shining through glass can start firesLSO Middlemiss said: “As the warm and dry weather continues, so too does the risk of wildfire.“We have seen in the last week just how challenging these fires can become – many rural and remote communities are hugely impacted by these incidents, which can cause significant environmental and economic damage.“Livestock, farmland, wildlife, protected woodland and sites of special scientific interest can all be devastated by these fires – as can the lives of people living and working in rural communities.“We are appealing to people to take great care – it is crucial that people act safely and responsibly in rural environments and follow the countryside code.“Just one heat source like a campfire ember can cause it to ignite and if the wind changes direction even the smallest fire can spread uncontrollably and devastate entire hillsides.”SFRS Area Manager Bruce Farquharson is the chair of the Scottish Wildfire Forum.He said: “At the start of spring there is often a lot of dead vegetation leftover from last year – this fuel can dry out quickly with higher temperatures and lower humidity levels.“A great many people will be enjoying the outdoors in the good weather this weekend, we urge everyone to make sure that they don’t increase the chance of wildfire – be aware of the risks and follow the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.“Wildfires are a major threat to our wildlife and wild places. We encourage people visiting the outdoors to be extra careful, and check the advice in the Scottish Outdoor Access Code before starting a fire.“The public can help prevent wildfires by making sure they dispose of litter and smoking materials carefully while in rural areas.”AM Farquharson added: “Human behaviour can significantly lower the chance of a wildfire starting so it is crucial that people act safely and responsibly in rural environments and follow the countryside code.”The SFRS works closely with land managers, communities and other safety partners to prevent these incidents occurring.For further advice and information about wildfires and how to prevent them visit: /your-safety/wildfires.aspx or www.outdooraccess-scotland.com/last_img read more

HS Hockey: Kenston Bombers Top Strongsville Mustangs 2-1 in Overtime at The Pond

first_imgBy Anthony Alandt CHAGRIN FALLS, OHIO – The Kenston Bombers won a hard-fought hockey match in overtime 2-1 against the Strongsville Mustangs Sunday evening. The two teams faced off for the second time in as many days, as Strongsville pulled out the 4-2 win Saturday night over the Bombers.Strongsville jumped out to an early 1-0 lead after a goal by sophomore forward Kyle Czworkowski a little more than two minutes into the game. Kenston was unable to counter with a goal of their own, but maintained possession of the puck throughout the majority of the first 15 minutes and made the Mustang defense work.From the initial puck drop to the buzzer signaling the end of the first period, the Bombers kept their foot firmly on the gas pedal. Kenston’s aggressive approach in the first period was outmatched by senior goalie Luke Bell, who kept Kenston scoreless and amassed 12 saves.When the Mustangs were able to flip possession, they took advantage of their opportunities and shot a flurry of times at Kenston goalie Jason Hildebran, who saved 20 of the 21 shots at him.Junior Valentino Carriero was able to tie up the game for the Bombers at 1 after 1:33 of play in the second period off an assist from senior Tanner Mulhern. Strongsville had many more attempts to score in the second period, but Hildebran staved off every chance with impeccable blocking and saves. Both power play opportunities that came in the second period were unable to be capitalized on, as neither squad could muster a goal while it was 5 on 4. Bell, the goalie for Strongsville, finished by saving 27 of 29 shots on goal.Regulation ended with the score at 1-1 after a very defensive-heavy third period. Both the Mustangs and the Bombers had trouble getting anything to materialize and when they found some path to the goal, neither team was able to slip one by the goalies.With all the fans in attendance on their feet and the clock ticking down towards 4 minutes in the overtime, Carriero came through with his second goal of the game, winning it for the Bombers. Carriero picked up his 32nd and 33rd goal of the season, while Mulhern added his 9th assist of the year.Kenston remains atop the Red Central division as they improve to 6-1 in league play. They face off next at Rocky River on Friday. Strongsville falls to 5-3 in league play and stay behind the Bombers in second place in the Red Central division. The Mustangs will play at Benedictine on Friday for their next game. Related TopicsKenston BombersStrongsville Mustangs NEO HS Stafflast_img read more

Ivan Velchev-Kyustendil: Thousands of people have voted for me, do something…

first_imgSector D Tartar Ivan Velchev answered questions from disgruntled fans who accused him of speaking on behalf of all “Army men”. The ferment against him arose around the latest events in the capital’s grand.Here is what the Kyustendil resident wrote on Facebook: Petar Zhekov with a new attack on CSKA 1948: To be renamed!“The veterans of the club support Grisha Ganchev” “Because in the last few days known and unknown capacities are speaking on the topic of CSKA – should there have been a meeting or not, what did Ganchev say, what Naidenov, etc. will be as short as possible. I am tormented by a type of questions from such as “on whose behalf am I speaking at the meeting in question” and “why am I speaking on behalf of all the army members”.For those who ask, I answer – on behalf of several Sofia groups and over 40 fan clubs around the country, supporting CSKA. Thousands of people have voted for me to speak on their behalf and to represent Sector D. To those who are dissatisfied, try to give advice or do not like something, I will tell them to order and do something in the name of the favorite team. But outside of writing on social media. Make someone even realize that you exist, and then write, speak, and speak as a last resort. Until then, we will continue to act with the people around me in the name of the best interests of both CSKA and the united red community, “Velchev said on social media. Michaela: CSKA goes bankrupt on September 9, but will beat Levski in the Cup final“If a third CSKA appears, will they unite again?”last_img read more

Their magic number for reserving their spot dropped from nine to six, with two points coming off for the victory, and another point dropping off when seventh-place Cedar Rapids lost to Green Bay in overtime.The Jacks, now 29-22-2 and in third place in the USHL’s Eastern Conference, will play another road game in Madison on Saturday night.The Jacks took a 2-0 lead with a pair of goals by Vincent de Mey, at 9:09 of the first period and 3:23 of the second. de Mey, whose second goal came on a Madison power play, now has 19 goals on the season.Madison responded with four unanswered goals to take a 4-2 lead. The first came from Cade Borchardt at 6:58 in the second period.

DFS Hockey January 18

first_imgTonight’s line up has some super stars with a mix of young talent.At center I picked Mathew Barzal who right now is the favorite to win rookie of the year; who is playing a Boston Bruins team that played last night. Barzal has a combined 47 points in 46 games, and has had 10 points in his last five.I then picked from the dark side taking Sidney Crosby as my second center. Crosby has been red hot with five straight multi point games and has 13 points in his last five games plus he’s only $6,900 I’ve never seen him that cheep before.Other options I would recommend Mika Zibanejad $6,500, Nicklas Backstrom $6,400 and Nathan Mackinnon.My wingers tonight are Alex Ovechkin, Dominik Simon and Riley Smith. Ovechkin is coming off a bye week, and still leads the league in goals, so hopefully he is well rested and ready to put up a lot of points tonight playing against New Jersey’s back up goalie.Simon was my value play only costing me $3,800. He is currently on the top line in Pittsburgh playing along Crosby, so looks for him to score a goal with Crosby’s passing ability. Then my last winger is Dustin Brown. Brown is playing on the top line for LA, and playing a Pittsburgh team that has let in a lot of goals the past few games with Matt Murray leaving the team to take care of family issues. Brown is also second in points for the Kings.Other good options are Brad Marchand $7,300, Rick Nash $5,500, Jordan Eberle $5,500 and Nikita Kucherov.My defense is a little cheep, but could have great value. I picked Nate Schmidt and Samuel Girard. Schmidt is playing on Vegas’s top line and is on the power play, and Girard is only $3,000 who is on Colorado’s top power play as well. Girard despite only just playing his first NHL game a few days ago the rookie produced three points in his debut.Other options are John Carlson $6,400, PK Subban $5,800 and Kevin Shattenkirk $5,800My flex is JT Miller who is on the second line and second in points for the Rangers playing a last place Buffalo Sabers.My goalie in net tonight is Pekka Rinne. Rinne is playing the last place team in the West, and Rinne stopped 25 of 26 shots in his last start, and currently has the sixth best save percentage in the NHLOther good options are Braden Holtby, .Please follow and like us:last_img read more

Where is ‘College GameDay’ this week? Location, schedule, guest picker for Week 4 on ESPN

first_imgThe set of ESPN’s popular morning show, “College GameDay,” unfolds on Georgia’s campus on Saturday for a ranked matchup between top-10 teams when No. 7 Notre Dame comes to face off against Kirby Smart’s team.The orange and black trailer will roll up to Myers Quad, a popular tailgating destination just outside of Sanford Stadium. The decision to come watch the Bulldogs take on the Fighting Irish seemed a logical choice for the Saturday morning show to host its show since it is the only matchup of top-10 teams taking place in Week 4. There are other ranked matchups this weekend, however, with No. 13 Wisconsin hosting Big Ten rival No. 11 Michigan and No. 17 Texas A&M hosting No. 8 Auburn.WEEK 4 PICKS: Straight up | Against the spreadGeorgia will face its first ranked team of the season when it faces Notre Dame, but it will certainly not be the last one. The Bulldogs will travel to Gainesville on Nov. 2 for a matchup against No. 9 Florida. Then two of its final three games of the regular season will come against ranked teams, facing No. 8 Auburn on Nov. 16 and No. 17 Texas A&M on Nov. 23. Georgia will travel to both Auburn and Florida, and it will host the Aggies.Notre Dame will also face its fair share of ranked teams this season, but Georgia will be the first one on its slate. Next week, Notre Dame will host No. 21 UVA. On Oct. 26, it will travel to Ann Arbor, Michigan, to face No. 11 Michigan.Both teams figure to be in the playoff picture after they have made one appearance in the past two seasons. Georgia went to the National Championship game in 2018 and lost to fourth-ranked Alabama. Notre Dame made an appearance for the first time last year and lost in the Cotton Bowl to eventual national champ Clemson. For either team, a win on Saturday would mark a strong entry to their respective CFP resume when the committee is evaluating teams at the end of the year.MORE: Full betting preview for Georgia vs. Notre DameWhere is ‘College GameDay’ location for Week 4?Location: Athens, Ga.Matchup: No. 7 Notre Dame at No. 3 GeorgiaThis will be the fourth time the “College GameDay” set will roll onto the campus in Georgia, with the most recent occasion coming in 2013 when the Bulldogs hosted No. 6 LSU.
