Alaska’s Energy Desk | Energy & Mining | Environment | Federal Government | North SlopeInterior delays public comment deadline for ANWR oil leasingJanuary 30, 2019 by Elizabeth Harball, Alaska’s Energy Desk Share:Tussock tundra on Arctic Refuge coastal plain. (Photo courtesy USFWS)Following the government shutdown, the Interior department is giving the public an additional month to weigh in on its controversial plans to allow oil leasing in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.In a statement, top Interior official Joe Balash said the comment period is being extended from February 11 to March 13, in response to requests from Alaska communities and tribes, as well as nonprofits from across the U.S.Democrats in Congress who oppose drilling in the Refuge had also written letters urging Interior to extend the comment period, arguing the shutdown limited the agency’s ability to provide information to the public.During the government shutdown, Interior was continuing to plan meetings about oil leasing in the Refuge, leading to outcry from Democratic lawmakers and environmental groups. The agency later announced it was delaying the meetings, although the dates and locations had never been publicly announced.Interior finally released the meeting schedule today. The first takes place in Fairbanks on February 4. Other meetings are scheduled in the following days in Kaktovik, Utqiaġvik, Fort Yukon, Arctic Village, Venetie, Anchorage and Washington, D.C.Share this story:

News Bizarre situation as Ben Brennan breaks up Fianna Fáil-Fine Gael arrangement to take Graiguecullen-Portarlington vice-chair role The Laois link to the brutal murders of Keane Mulready-Woods and Robbie Lawlor By LaoisToday Reporter – 8th April 2020 Several people have been arrested in connection with the murder but only one, Gerard McKenna, of Rathmullen Park in Drogheda, has been charged.The 50-year-old was charged on February 28 with impeding the apprehension or prosecution of another person in relation to the death of the teenager – and he is in custody awaiting a trial.Robbie Lawlor had 124 convictions and was suspected of at least four major killings over the past 15 years.Since Keane Mulready-Woods’ death, he had kept a low profile until Saturday April 4 when he met his demise.36-year-old Lawlor, along with three other men, traveled to Ardoyne in Belfast to allegedly collect a drug debt.However, he was shot several times and died at the scene – with the other men who were with him fleeing the scene.Four suspects were later arrested and questioned by the PSNI. They were later released without charge.Irish Sun Crime Editor Stephen Breen explained the link to Laois further yesterday.Speaking to Midlands 103’s Will Faulkner, Breen said: “On Monday at around 2pm, Gardai from Portlaoise stopped a car on the M7 heading Southbound.“They arrested two women, aged in their 20s and 30s, and recovered €50,000 in cash.“And the suspicion is that this was part of the payment for the contract that was on Robbie Lawlor’s head.“This cash was collected in Dublin by a crime gang and it was to be delivered to Limerick to criminals who it is believed played a part in the murder of Robbie Lawlor.“So this seizure is significant and will form part of the overall investigation into who plotted to have Robbie Lawlor murdered.”Since then, Gardai have confirmed that the two women have been released.They said: “The two women who were arrested during a money laundering operation on the M7 in Laois on Monday, 6th April 2020, have been released without charge from Garda custody.“A file will now be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Upgrading of Airports will Boost Tourism – Pickersgill UncategorizedDecember 1, 2006 Advertisements RelatedUpgrading of Airports will Boost Tourism – Pickersgill FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Minister of Housing, Transport, Water and Works, Robert Pickersgill, has said that the capital development programme at the Norman Manley International Airport as well as infrastructural improvements to the Sangster International Airport, would be a major boost to the country’s tourism sector.“In less than two years, the Sangster International Airport will be unveiled as a truly first class international gateway to the world and will further serve to significantly augment the tourism product and enhance brand Jamaica,” Minister Pickersgill said.The Minister, who was speaking in the House of Representatives on November 28, said phase two of the capital development programme was completed since November last year at a cost of more than US$8.5 million, having commenced in November 2003, well ahead of the January 2004 commencement date. According to Mr. Pickersgill, improvements to the Norman Manley International Airport, answered calls for upgrading of the airport’s infrastructure, especially when there were improvements being effected on the airport in Montego Bay.The Minister said the major expansion programme at the Sangster International Airport was also being carried out in three phases at a value of approximately US$200 million, with phase two slated to begin next month at an estimated cost of some US$65 million.Major renovation to the departure lounge, ground floor ticketing area and the customs hall are expected to be the focus in this phase of the project.“It is to be noted that the new customs hall and arrivals and ground transportation halls will be ready by the end of January,” Minister Pickersgill said, adding that the remainder of the phase would be completed by June 2008.Outlining the features of the improved airport, the Minister said that “a new 11-gate concourse is now in place with the capacity to accommodate six wide body aircraft, complete with gate lounges, passenger loading bridges and 13 new retail and food outlets”.With respect to the Norman Manley International Airport, the Airports Authority of Jamaica, following Government’s policy to privatise its international airports, embarked on the extensive capital development programme.“This was timely as certain capital improvements will be unveiled in time for the upcoming World Cup [of Cricket] next year. [and] presently, construction is well advanced on the main terminal expansion project,” the Minister said.Mr. Pickersgill said the full project would be complete by October next year, adding that he had toured the facility this week, and observed that the project was on schedule.

Vallence – Taxpayers to pay for Labor’s toxic soil mess as foreign-owned contractors eligible for grants
Vallence – Taxpayers to pay for Labor’s toxic soil mess as foreign-owned contractors eligible for grants Liberal Party VictoriaTaxpayers to pay for Labor’s toxic soil mess as foreign-owned contractors eligible for grantsIn Victorian State Budget hearings today, the Andrews Labor Government confirmed taxpayers would be left to foot the bill to clean up the millions of tonnes of PFAS toxic soil dug up from the Melbourne Metro and West Gate Tunnel projects.Earlier this year, the Labor Government sneakily rushed through new regulations exempting foreign-owned tunnel contractors from paying any landfill levy on the toxic PFAS soil they’ll dump on Victorian communities.Last week in a shock announcement, the EPA confirmed it had revoked environmental management plan approvals for the three toxic soil dumps it had approved in Bacchus Marsh, Bulla and Ravenhall, because it’d failed to follow proper legal process.Today, Environment Minister Lily D’Ambrosio, confirmed that the foreign-owned tunnel contractors would be eligible for taxpayer funded grants of up to $47 million dollars to remediate PFAS toxic tunnel soil in so-called ‘field trials’. The revelation came through questioning today by the Shadow Environment Minister, Bridget Vallence, in the Public Accounts and Estimates hearing.Victorians will be left to pay hundreds of millions of dollars to make this PFAS toxic soil safe, but not before dumping it on the doorstep of communities near homes, schools and fruit and vegetable farms.Not only are the Melbourne Metro and West Gate Tunnel projects billions of dollars over budget and years behind in completion, but Victorians are left to pay for the toxic mess.As stated by Shadow Minister for Environment, Bridget Vallence:“It’s outrageous that Victorians will be forced to foot the bill to clean up the millions of tonnes of toxic tunnel soil.“The Andrews Labor Government won’t rule out raiding funds from the Landfill Levy to clean up this toxic mess. They’ve confirmed that tunnel contractors would be eligible for taxpayer funded grants of up to $47 million dollars.“Not only are the Melbourne Metro Tunnel and West Gate Tunnel projects billions of dollars over budget and years behind schedule, but Victorian taxpayers will be dumped with the cost of cleaning up Labor’s toxic mess.“This Labor Government has been caught out trying to dump of millions of tonnes of toxic PFAS soil without public consultation, removing appeal rights to VCAT and rushing through environmental approvals for dump sites near homes and schools without the legal power to do so.“Labor doesn’t care about the environment or people, and cares more about finding sneaky ways in their budget to keep foreign-owned tunnel contractors happy.” /Public Release.

AARHUS, Denmark – Thorbjorn Olesen was in a strong position to secure the final qualifying spot on Europe’s Ryder Cup team despite making the cut on the number at the Made In Denmark event on Friday. Only a victory for Matthew Fitzpatrick or Eddie Pepperell can deny Olesen the last automatic spot in the Europe team via the world points list, but the English players were far off the lead after the second round at Silkeborg Ry Golf Club. Pepperell shot a 3-under 69 and was 5 under overall, eight strokes behind leader Christiaan Bezuidenhout of South Africa. Fitzpatrick shot 68 and was a stroke further back. Full-field scores from the Made in Demark They both need big weekends in central Denmark to deny Olesen a first-ever Ryder Cup appearance under the captaincy of his compatriot, Thomas Bjorn. The biggest 36-hole deficit made up by a winner this season is nine shots, by Alex Noren at the French Open. ”It will take a silly low weekend,” said Fitzpatrick, who made his Ryder Cup debut in 2016 at Hazeltine. ”If I could shoot a couple of 64s then I would have a chance.” Olesen shot 69 and made the weekend on the cut mark at 2-under 142. ”I feel like I am very close to shooting a low number,” Olesen said, ”and playing the way I have been for the last three months or so.” Bezuidenhout made eight birdies in a 65 that left him on 13 under, tying Bradley Dredge’s tournament record after 36 holes. Bezuidenhout was two strokes ahead of Ryder Cup vice-captain Lee Westwood (65) and first-round leader Jonathan Thomson (69).
A Flathead County resident has filed a lawsuit against Montana’s commissioner of political practices regarding the release of information about the previous commissioner. Edwin X Berry filed the suit against James Murry, the recently appointed commissioner of political practices, on March 6 in Flathead County District Court. The lawsuit seeks to compel Murry to release information on former Commissioner of Political Practices David Gallik, a request the current commissioner denied last month. Gallik resigned in January after a dispute with his staff went public. Gov. Brian Schweitzer appointed Murry as the new commissioner in early February. The allegations against Gallik include falsifying time payroll records and doing work for his private law practice while in state offices. In the lawsuit, Berry’s lawyers – Matthew Monforton of Bozeman and Timothy Baldwin of Kalispell – write that Berry had filed an ethics complaint against Gallik in October 2011 alleging various ethics violations. On. Feb. 21, Berry requested any documents evidencing Gallik’s work for clients other than the state while on state time and any documents about the former commissioner’s alleged misconduct. Murry denied the request, writing in a Feb. 23 response that because Berry’s complaint was pending before a hearing examiner, Murry would be unable to provide the documentation outside of that process. However, Monforton argues that a public records request is a separate matter from an ethics violation hearing, and Berry has the right to ask for the documents as a member of the public. “All the documents we are requesting involve evidence of misconduct by the former commissioner,” Monforton said in an interview last week. That would preclude any refusals for privacy, he said. In an interview with the Beacon, Murry said his office has 40 days to officially respond to the lawsuit once it was served on March 8, but the office intends to make available any public information. There are potential privacy concerns, Murry said, because if Gallik has clients from his private law firm involved, they have a right to having their privacy protected. “That’s the kind of thing that we’re most concerned with,” Murry said. The commissioner of political practices’ office is consulting with its counsel about the lawsuit, Murry said, and its response will depend on that advice. Murry is not an attorney; he was the executive secretary of the Montana State AFL-CIO from 1968 to 1991. “We’re doing everything we can to make information available to everyone that’s entitled to that information,” Murry said.
