E-mails warning of rapist are false

first_img“The Santa Clarita Valley sheriff’s station is encouraging the public to rest assured that had any attack of the magnitude being expressed in these e-mails actually occurred, a widespread public announcement would have been made with complete, accurate, timely and detailed information,” Harris wrote in a press release. pat.aidem@dailynews.com (661) 257-5251160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! A woman did report March 11 she was raped at her home near Copper Hill and Seco Canyon roads, but she has since recanted, saying she made the claim to get attention from her boyfriend, Sgt. Darren Harris said. Rumors about crime in Santa Clarita have been around as long as deputies can remember. But e-mail has helped spread them like wildfire. “It’s amazing what it can do,” Cambra said. “The ones we have seen were addressed to 40 to 50 people.” And with a mouse click on the “forward” button, the town was abuzz. E-mail went to a Santa Clarita City Hall employee, a Hart Union High School District staffer and a woman at Princess Cruises, among the city’s largest employers. Helping feed the panic was the escape earlier in the week of an inmate from the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic – the e-mailed warnings didn’t mention he was in for drug charges, not rape. Harris said that if a predator were on the loose, the public would be notified. SANTA CLARITA – A flurry of e-mails hit Santa Clarita on Thursday and Friday, warning of a rapist on the loose in Saugus and an intruder hitting homes in Valencia. Scores of soccer moms and working women were warned to lock their doors and windows and to be on guard outdoors at night. The Santa Clarita sheriff’s station fielded dozens of calls from what one official called an “e-mail frenzy.” So what’s going on in Santa Clarita, among the safest cities in the nation? “It’s not true,” Lt. Brenda Cambra said. “There’s one e-mail that says her brother’s a deputy, but none of these things in the e-mail are true.” last_img read more

Guardiola not worried about City players’ social media use

first_img0Shares0000Manchester City defender Kyle Walker teased Liverpool on Twitter after they dropped points against Leicester © AFP/File / Paul ELLISMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Feb 1 – Pep Guardiola is not concerned about the way his Manchester City players use social media, despite a post from Kyle Walker that appeared to mock Premier League title rivals Liverpool.Walker posted a picture of Harry Maguire on Twitter after the Leicester defender’s equaliser secured a 1-1 draw at Anfield on Wednesday, meaning that Jurgen Klopp’s side lead City by only five points, rather than seven. The tweet was based on a picture that became a popular social media meme during the World Cup, featuring Maguire leaning over a fence to talk to his fiancee.Walker tweeted the picture after Wednesday’s game with the caption: “So basically, they thought they were gonna go seven points ahead.”The City defender quickly deleted the tweet after receiving criticism but Guardiola suggested it was not an issue with him.“I don’t control them,” Guardiola said at his pre-match press conference on Friday. “I’m not concerned about tweeting or Instagram because I can’t control it“I don’t think it gives Liverpool extra motivation because of one tweet. The opponents do many things against us and nothing happens. The motivation is our game and that is what we have to do.”City faced the prospect of slipping seven points behind Liverpool after a surprising 2-1 defeat at relegation-threatened Newcastle on Tuesday, and Guardiola has told his players that he expects a significant improvement when Arsenal visit the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.A victory over Unai Emery’s side would put them two points from the top of the table, as Liverpool do not play until Monday, when they visit West Ham.“Of course we analyse our game to see what we have to improve on,” said Guardiola. “It will be different against Arsenal. We analyse what we’ve to do and don’t repeat what we did in the last game.”– Arsenal test –City face a busy Premier League week as they attempt to reduce Liverpool’s lead, with the Arsenal match followed by a trip to Everton on Wednesday and a home fixture against Chelsea the following Sunday.Guardiola is confident that City have what is required to cope with such a demanding schedule.“It’s the same situation as it has been in the last two or three months,” he said. “It happens and it’s not new.“It’s the only way I know, that after a negative result we need to focus on the way we play and the mentality. We have to say: ‘OK, it’s February 1. There are a lot of points to play for and many things can happen.’“The situation is simple, we improve the way we play, and with the details we didn’t do well, we have options to change that. It’s not new. The players know that.”France defender Benjamin Mendy is back in training as he continues his recovery from a knee problem but is not expected to feature against Arsenal.Mendy returned for the League Cup semi-final second-leg victory at Burton on January 23 after more than two months out but reported swelling after the game and has not played since.Guardiola said: “Really, I don’t know. After the minutes he played against Burton away, he had two or three days where he could not train. In the past two training sessions he was able to train, and we will see day by day.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Gary Neville brands Man United ‘rotten to the core’ following Mourinho claim

first_imgGary Neville has reacted furiously to reports Jose Mourinho could be sacked as Manchester United manager this weekend, and launched an amazing blast at the club’s hierarchy.The United legend accused the club’s board of “playing Football Manager with the biggest club in the world” in response to the Daily Mirror’s revelation that Mourinho is set to lose his job whatever the result of Saturday’s game against Newcastle – a report since denied by club figures. 2 Son ban confirmed as Tottenham fail with appeal to overturn red card huge blow REVEALED United have failed to win any of their last four matches and last weekend’s 3-1 loss at West Ham made this the club’s worst start to a league campaign in 29 years.Poor performances have been compounded by off-field problems, with the relationship between Mourinho and star Paul Pogba making unwanted headlines.But Neville is adamant that United should be sticking with the ‘Special One’ and suggested if anyone should go, it should be Ed Woodward.Neville continued: “At the end of the day this is now going on five or six years and I have to say that any manager – Jose Mourinho is one of the best managers in the world – and I think in this moment in time any manager would struggle in that football club, the way in which requirement is handled, the way in which it operates.“And enough is enough for me. I love that football club, I absolutely love it to death, it’s been my life, it’s given me everything, and I’m not turning on my football club, (but) I have to say something has to change and it isn’t the manager, it’s above that. 2 England’s most successful clubs of the past decade, according to trophies won “And I’m furious that we’re stood here thinking that there’s a report that’s broken out… journalists don’t break stories of this nature unless they’re absolutely certain.“I hope it’s not true, but if it is true I think it’s an absolute disgrace.“At this moment in time there is something rotten to the core in the decisions that have been made in the last four or five years and it has to be coming from the top. If I employ a person beneath me and he fails, eventually I’ve got to take responsibility. I’ve got to stand up and say ‘I’m not good enough to do this’.“The people in the boardroom who are overseeing the football operation are nowhere near good enough. They are not qualified. They are playing Football Manager with the biggest club in the world. Stop it. Put people in there who are qualified.“This is a big story that is breaking and tomorrow I might look stupid. But these thoughts still ring true.”You can listen to live and exclusive national radio commentary of Manchester United v Newcastle United on talkSPORT this Saturday, kick-off 17:30 REVEALED shining Oxlade-Chamberlain suffers another setback as Klopp confirms serious injury Where Ancelotti ranks with every Premier League boss for trophies won Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era? Should he indeed leave his post, the Portuguese would be the third manager to be axed by United since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013.Asked on Sky Sports if it would be the right decision to axe Mourinho, Neville responded: “No. To be honest I’m furious.“I’m furious going back three, four years ago when David Moyes was sacked, when it broke a day before to journalists.“I think of Louis van Gaal being sacked the evening of a cup final and finding out from other people. I think about how the club’s been operated.“If this is true, we don’t know if it’s true but if this is true and Jose Mourinho is going to walk out at Old Trafford tomorrow, as almost like a dead man walking, those fans will absolutely turn towards that boardroom. It’s unacceptable.“And I have to say that Jose Mourinho will get the biggest support he’s ever had in his life tomorrow I think in that ground. And I’ll be there to give it to him.“Because if this is true and it’s broken the day before it’s going to happen and he’s going to be sacked after the game or at the weekend, it’s an absolute disgrace.“Where’s the values and the principles of Manchester United if this is true?

HEARTBREAKING SCENES AS TRAGIC OISIN IS LAID TO REST

first_imgTHERE were heartbreaking scenes in the village of St Johnston today as hundreds and hundreds of mourners paid their respects at the funeral of popular local man Oisin Crawford, the man killed after taking ecstasy on Monday.The 22-year-old was one of five people affected by a dangerous drug being sold in the county.St Baithin’s Church in the village was packed to overflowing as they heard Monsignor Dan Carr plead with young people to stay away from drugs. “I would like to give a message today to our young people and the message is very simple – keep away from drugs,” said the priest at the end of the Mass.“Do not experiment with them; they are highly dangerous. Keep away from alcohol because alcohol is the first step towards drugs.”Monsignor Carr described how Oisin loved working with his father Seamus at the family tyre business in Raphoe.He loved stock car racing and got on with his dad more like two brothers than a father and son. The priest said he hoped the Crawford family did not feel alone at this time because of how the community in the area had come together to support them at this difficult time.Oisin was laid to rest in the adjoining cemetery, the cortege led there by a lone piper – with a guard of honour from his former school Deele College lining the route. HEARTBREAKING SCENES AS TRAGIC OISIN IS LAID TO REST was last modified: May 28th, 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:drugs deathEcstasyfuneralOisin CrawfordSt Johnstonlast_img read more

CLOSURE ORDER SERVED ON INDIAN/PAKISTANI RESTAURANT

first_imgA POPULAR Asian restaurant in Donegal has re-opened after a food safety probe.The Food Safety Authority served a closure order on Mr Gurpreet Singh of Monsoon Valley at the Retail Park in Bundoran on July 22.However the restaurant was allowed to re-open again on July 26 after complying with orders issued by the authority. Commenting on the latest Closure Orders, Prof. Alan Reilly, Chief Executive, FSAI, stated that vigilance is always required in relation to food safety and that the legal onus is on food businesses to act responsibly and ensure that the food they serve and sell is safe to eat.“Each Closure Order undermines consumer confidence in food safety which not only affects the food business involved, but the industry as a whole,” he said.“While most food businesses are committed to high standards for the health of their customers, this is not always the case. We’re urging food businesses to make sure that they have a food safety management system in place and that it is consulted on a regular basis and updated, where necessary, to ensure non-compliance issues and breaches of food safety legislation do not occur.”Details of the food businesses served with Enforcement Orders are published on the FSAI’s website. Closure Orders and Improvement Orders will remain listed on the website for a period of three months from the date of when a premises is adjudged to have corrected its food safety issue, with Prohibition Orders being listed for a period of one month.  CLOSURE ORDER SERVED ON INDIAN/PAKISTANI RESTAURANT was last modified: August 7th, 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:closure orderfood safetyFood Safety AuthorityFSAIMonsoon Bundoranlast_img read more
