Therefore I am appealing to Commissioner Harris to assign at least two additional guards to the sub-district.”“Two guards are stationed in Ardnacrusha with the third recently retired and I understand that the process is already underway to replace him.”“Although in County Clare, the area is right on the doorstep of Limerick City. It has a high population base and is very urbanized in places.”“The rostering schedule means that for 40 per cent of the week there is no guard on duty. During this time, cover is provided from Mayorstone Garda station in Limerick City.However, in most cases, Mayorstone Gardaí do not get near   the communities that fall within the Ardnacrusha Sub-District because of pressures in the city suburbs and staffing limitations.”“I  recently met with Superintendent Derek Smart of Henry Street Garda Station, to outline my concerns for staff shortages in the district. Superintendent Smart and his senior colleagues have set up a specialized sex crimes unit which incorporates ten Garda personnel. However, he will not be able to free-up guards for deployment in Ardnacrusha Sub-District.”“Ardnacrusha needs at least two dedicated community guards and a full-time Garda presence for peace of mind and safety in the community,” Cllr Crowe declared.Other issues that will be discussed at Monday night’s meeting include neighbourhood watch schemes and home security.by Rebecca [email protected] Shannon Airport braced for a devastating blow Housing 37 Compulsory Purchase Orders issued as council takes action on derelict sites Print Limerick on Covid watch list WhatsApp Facebooklast_img read more

Watch Before It’s… Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Eerily poetic Book Nook to reopen Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Print Article Skip By Jaine Treadwell Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day When the dart hits a cemetery on a dreary October morn, that’s a bit eerie … and a bit poetic.Beulah Cemetery has the distinction of being the oldest cemetery in Troy proper. Beulah Primitive Baptist Church was organized in 1831. The church grounds were deeded in 1839 and the land on the east side of South Three Notch Street as Beulah Cemetery. With that historic designation, come some very interesting stories about the cemetery and its inhabitants. According to Bullard, John McIntosh was “buried by torchlight at night” at Beulah. Dendy Motes, who was born in 1798, had seven sons join the Confederate Army. Four lost their lives.Among the children buried at Beulah is Whitney Leroy Loe who died in 1847 at the age of one year. He is buried in the oldest marked grave in the cemetery. Two-year-old Park Lee died when her clothing caught fire when she was playing too close to a washpot during a hog killing in 1869.“There are many prominent people buried at Beulah including David Coskrey, who was born in 1808 in Belfast, Ireland,” Bullard said. “He and his family are buried in an iron fenced lot. Coskrey amassed a large fortune, according to his obituary, by ‘industry, energy and honest dealings.’”Bullard said some of the graves offer questions that cannot be answered.“Among them, graves that have either been protected or decorated with shells,” she said. “Many of the graves were mounds of sand and the shells could have been placed on them to keep the sand from being washed away during rains. I’ve not been able to find any information about the significance of the shells. A lot of trade went on between Troy and Pensacola so that’s probably why the shells were plentiful and why they were used for whatever reason.”Six simple iron markers mark the entrance of the cemetery.“There were seven at one time,” Bullard said. “I’ve not been able to find any information about them. They could have military significance but I don’t know what if any.”Although many of the graves have been lost to time and others are crumbling under aging weight, Beulah Cemetery, with its sloping bank and moss-covered trees, has maintained its beauty. The old cemetery is a quiet resting place, just off a busy highway, for those for whom it is their final resting place. Sponsored Content Published 11:00 pm Monday, October 1, 2012 Latest Stories Local historian Karen Bullard said that, at the center of the cemetery and the center of the folklore surrounding it, is the gravesite of Joel Winslett.“Stories handed down insist that in 1860, Mr. Winslett was buried sitting up in his favorite rocking chair, ” Bullard said. The gravestone seems to support the stories because, if Mr. Winslett were buried in a reclining position, he would not be well covered by the marker bearing his name.Beulah is the resting place of two doctors, 32 Confederate soldiers, several members of the Masons, veterans of the War of 1812, the Indian War and the Mexican War.

When she died in 1858, all the stores in Troy were closed for her funeral,” Bullard said.Granny Love’s son, Capt. Andrew Pickens Love, was a Confederate veteran and Troy’s first sheriff. He is buried at Beulah Cemetery next to his mother.“Among the war veterans interred at Beulah Cemetery was Captain William Henry Strickland C.S.A., who had a secret handicap,” Bullard said. “He could not see at night. When fighting occurred at night, Strickland would detail a man to explain conditions to him and he would command as though he could see.” By Secrets Revealed Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

Andrew Cuomo’s virus restrictions, while a ban remains in place in New York City.Up to four people per table can now dine inside restaurants, up to 50% capacity, in seven so-called “orange zones” located in counties with some of the state’s highest rates of COVID-19 cases or hospitalizations: including Monroe County in the Finger Lakes.The decision comes a day after some Erie County restaurants won a preliminary injunction for themselves against the state’s enforcement of the indoor dining ban in yellow zones.Cuomo’s counsel Kumiki Gibson said his office disagrees with the decision and is reviewing it. She pointed to federal data demonstrating indoor dining increases COVID-19 spread. “While that process is ongoing, to ensure uniformity and fairness, all restaurants operating in orange zones can now operate under rules governing yellow zones,” she said.State Supreme Court Justice Henry Nowak said he couldn’t “find evidence that the state had a rational basis to designate portions of Erie County as an orange zone” and that the restaurants would suffer “irreparable harm” without the injunction.New York City’s restaurant industry is calling on Cuomo to also halt his indoor dining ban in the city. Manhattan has relatively low rates of cases and hospitalizations, though rates are higher in Staten Island.“Continuation of the indoor dining ban in New York City is divorced from any of the data and criteria the state has articulated and must be ended now,” NYC Hospitality Alliance executive director Andrew Rigie and executive director and counsel Robert Bookman said in a joint statement.It’s the latest lawsuit that has questioned Cuomo’s micro-cluster approach launched in October.Cuomo proposed imposing COVID-19 restrictions based on addresses of people testing positive, rather than statewide like last spring. Courts long deferred to Cuomo’s emergency authority, but restaurants and houses of worships have seen some success arguing Cuomo has gone too far.The Supreme Court barred Cuomo in November from enforcing 10- and 25-person attendance limits at churches and synagogues in Brooklyn and Queens hot spots. Cuomo called that decision “irrelevant” because he ended up easing restrictions in those neighborhoods.But in late December, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit ruled Cuomo’s attendance policy “discriminates against religion on its face” and ordered the federal district court to issue a preliminary injunction prohibiting enforcement in red and orange zones statewide. Cuomo’s office didn’t respond immediately Thursday to a question about the status of those restrictions.Cuomo’s Thursday announcement was welcome news for county officials and restaurant owners who question why Cuomo has kept only some orange zones even as cases rise elsewhere.“We’re very happy,” David Cleary, an owner of Pudgie’s Pizza Pasta & Subs, which has two locations in Chemung County, said. “We’ve been very patient the last 80-plus days. It’s good for all restaurants and dine-ins, especially mom-and-pop locations.”Critics question Cuomo’s data and say his approach leads to people driving outside zones to dine indoors. Cleary said other restaurants in Chemung’s orange zone started opening this week in defiance of Cuomo’s restrictions.“We really wanted to, but we’re trying to do what’s right and abide by the law,” he said, adding: “Now that we’re all able to open it’s easier.”New York now has no red zones and seven orange zones, even as nearly the entire state is seeing high enough positivity rates to qualify under Cuomo’s original red zone metrics. Cuomo hasn’t updated zones in weeks, and said in December he’ll shutter a part of the state only if regional hospitalization reaches critical levels.Red zones shutter nonessential businesses and outdoor dining, while orange zones only allow outdoor dining or takeout and limit gyms and hair salons to 25% capacity. Cuomo originally shuttered schools in those zones, but later allowed them to reopen if they launch testing programs.New York is far below the mid-April peak of COVID-19, but infections surged this fall and winter. The state now ranks 12th in the nation for its average of hospitalizations and new cases per-capita over the past seven days.In central and northern New York, Herkimer and Lewis counties have averaged a higher rate of new COVID-19 cases per-capita than Arizona over the past seven days. Long Island’s Suffolk County has a higher rate than California.And Cuomo’s approach has fueled disagreements between state and local officials, whose data can often differ, and confusion for residents.Chemung County’s own dashboard cites 210 active cases, 70 deaths of county residents and 57 residents hospitalized. But the state’s data — which doesn’t include hospitalizations by county — lists 107 deaths in total and 720 new cases over the past 10 days.County public health spokesman Vincent Azzarelli said he doesn’t know why the state’s fatality count is different. He said the county’s “active cases” are cases the department’s currently monitoring.last_img read more
