SALT SPRING ISLAND BC – Beloved Canadian broadc

first_img SALT SPRING ISLAND, B.C. – Beloved Canadian broadcaster and humorist Arthur Black has died at age 74.A statement on his website says the former CBC Radio host died Wednesday at Lady Minto Hospital on Salt Spring Island, B.C., after a battle with pancreatic cancer.Black spent 30 years at the CBC, where he hosted the Saturday morning radio program “Basic Black” for nearly two decades until his retirement in 2002.He also had a syndicated newspaper column and won the Stephen Leacock Memorial Medal for Humour three times.Black won the 2006 medal for his book “Pitch Black,” took the prize in 2000 for “Black Tie and Tales,” and won in 1997 for “Black in the Saddle Again.”His other books include “Looking Blackward,” “Back to Black” and “Black by Popular Demand.”“The family is very grateful for the overwhelming messages of support and good wishes received during his struggle with pancreatic cancer,” says a statement on his site.“It will come as no surprise to those who have been fans of Arthur’s work that he faced it all with his own unique combination of defiance and good humour.”Black used wit and candour as he wrote on his blog about his battle with late-stage pancreatic cancer, calling it “the Mike Tyson of cancers.”“Hardly seems fair that PanCan bellies up to the bar next to me, spoiling for a brawl,” reads one entry.“I’m a clean-living lad, 74 years young, non-drinker, non-smoker. I eat an annoyingly healthy diet and I have a partner Lynne, who holds it all together and makes our world go ’round in every way.“But it’s not news that life — and death — aren’t fair. If they were I’d be signed up for the Old Timers’ Decathlon and Trump would be waving his diagnosis around yelling PANCREATIC CANCER??? FAKE NEWS!!!”Black, who lived on Salt Spring Island, joked that he wanted to call his cancer posts “Dead Man Blogging.”“But that sounded a little dark. And prejudicial,” Black wrote. “After all I could be cranking out this blog twenty years from now.”On the suggestion of a friend and neighbour, Black decided on the blog title of “Last Writes.”Tributes to Black flooded social media Wednesday, with many noting he was an institution on Canadian radio and a Saturday-morning staple.“We called him Art, as in ‘work of.’ Adored him as a colleague and as a friend. He, and his singular brand of humour, will be deeply missed,” CBC Radio host Shelagh Rogers posted on Twitter.“Arthur Black was a giant of @CBCRadio,” tweeted CBC “Day 6” host Brent Bambury.“His warmth remained long after he retired. A mensh, a wit, full of heart and empathy. I’m always inspired by how much he brought to our Saturday mornings.” Canadian humorist Arthur Black of CBC Radio’s ‘Basic Black’ dies at age 74 by Victoria Ahearn, The Canadian Press Posted Feb 22, 2018 9:15 am PDT Last Updated Feb 22, 2018 at 9:41 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emaillast_img read more

Engomi municipality seeks help to catch stray dogs

first_imgEngomi municipality has asked the state vetinary services and police help them catch a pack of stray dogs in the area.This is not the first time such a group is roaming the municipality. Last year ten dogs were caught which were believed to come from the north.“I would like to inform you again that after last year’s capture of the pack with enormous effort by the municipality of Engomi, a new pack of dogs is within the municipal boundaries of Nicosia. We believe that the handling of this problem requires specialised know-how which the municipality does not have as well as appropriate means. We ask you for your direct response, for coordination, joint action and cooperation,” a letter from the municipality said.The dogs come from the north via the buffer zone in search of food, the municipality believes, and when such a pack was caught last year one of the animals was seriously infected. The officials say they don’t have sufficient training to deal with this and are at risk.Legislation states that municipalities need to take care of stray dogs, but this case goes far beyond the capture of individual strays which they do on a daily basis, the letter continued.The public vet services, however, deal only with farm animals and with legislation, and recommend that local authorities should recruit the help of dog trainers and private veterinarians.Last year, Engomi officials were helped by a private vet, but they say the operation was carried out “under extremely difficult conditions with obvious dangers.”“The municipality of Engomi expects the competent state authorities to take the initiative to manage the situation, in cooperation with the local authorities. This problem also reconfirms the need for a serious study by the state and the establishment of a police force as exists in other countries,” the letter concluded.According to the state vet service, a licence for an anaesthetic gun is granted by police and the drugs used are prescribed by a private vet and paid for by the local authorities.You May LikeClassmates.comLook For Any High School Yearbook, It’s FreeClassmates.comUndoFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?

Waste management trial questions authority of court

first_imgThe court trying the waste management corruption case did not have the authority to examine a motion filed by the defence on Monday asking for procedures against two defendants – an individual and a company – to be terminated, claiming they had been tainted because an extradition order was issued on the wrong information, the prosecution said.State prosecutor Ninos Kekkos argued that the Nicosia criminal court must first decide whether it had jurisdiction to rule on the request before examining the substance of it.Kekkos said the request was essentially asking the court to examine the legality of a decision taken by a foreign court.On Monday, defence lawyer Chris Triantafyllides suggested that if the Greek court knew that the offence described by one of the charges had been allegedly committed in Cyprus and Greece, then, based on Greek law, it would not have issued an extradition order for Theofanis Lolos. He argued that one of the charges against Lolos and Enviroplan SA had been withdrawn because the related offence had not been included in the ones for which the order had been issued.Kekkos argued that issues of such nature did not fall under jurisdiction of the criminal court, wondering where the authority for examining the execution of European arrest warrants stemmed from, prompting the defence to file such a motion.The prosecutor added that the Cypriot authorities’ extradition request was based on witness testimony which doesn’t include any reference to offences being committed in Greece. The only reference to Greece concerned a meeting to decide on the scale of a bid.“The Republic appeared before the Greek authorities with clean hands, presenting the testimony in had before it,” Kekkos said.The court said it will announce its decision on Wednesday.The case revolves around waste management company Helector, the operator of two landfills – one at Marathounda, Paphos, the other at Koshi, Larnaca – which is alleged to have overcharged municipalities by reporting higher waste volumes while public officials looked the other way in return for backhanders.They – individuals and three companies – face 104 charges including conspiracy to defraud, bribery, abuse of power, breach of trust by a public official, conspiracy to commit a felony, money laundering, and obtaining money under false pretences.The current defendants are former Larnaca Mayor Andreas Louroudjiatis, Demetrios Patsalides (municipal employee), Michalis Pantis, Stelios Papadopoulos (civil servant), Antonis Kourouzides, Georgios Koullapis (pensioner), former head of the Paphos Sewerage Board Eftychios Malekkides, Nicholas Koullapis (doctor), Enviroplan SA, Lolos (chemical engineer), NE Midoriaco Ltd, and Helector Cyprus Ltd.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
