Naomh Conaill remember the late Manus Kelly on emotional night in Glenswilly

first_imgTHE NAOMH CONAILL GAA club made a donation in memory of the late Manus Kelly on a highly-emotional evening in Glenswilly.The gesture was made before Glenswilly’s first All-County League Division One game since the tragic death of the popular father-of-five, who lost his life while competing in the 2019 Donegal International Rally.Naomh Conaill players funded a donation of €250, which will go towards Donegal Down Syndrome – a charity that was close to Manus’s heart. Naomh Conaill Chairman David Kelch presented a cheque to Manus’s parents, Donal and Jacqueline at Pairc Naomh Columba.Glenswilly’s team included Leon and Caolan Kelly, while members of the Kelly family were among the large attendance at a game won by Naomh Conaill 3-19 to 0-13. Naomh Conaill remember the late Manus Kelly on emotional night in Glenswilly was last modified: July 9th, 2019 by Chris McNultyShare 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:2019 All-County Football League2019 Donegal International RallyCaolan KellyDonal KellyglenswillyLeon KellyManus KellyNaomh Conailllast_img read more

What you need to know about water quality regulations

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Who needs to be certified?By the law and regulations created with the passage of Senate Bill 150 in 2014 anyone in Ohio who applies fertilizer to 50 acres or more must be certified. This law applies to fertilizer (material having an analysis). If it’s manure, lime or other farm residue, you do not need to be certified by this law.If all of your crop goes through an animal before it leaves the farm, you don’t need to be certified, but I think it’s a good idea if you do go to the class and get certified anyway. How do you get certified?The Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) will certify applicators in Ohio. If you are a Licensed Pesticide Applicator in Ohio, you attend a two-hour meeting and fill in and sign the attendance form. Ohio State University personnel supply the education for this class. We hope you pay attention and actually learn something.If you are not a Licensed Pesticide applicator, then the process is a little different. You attend a three-hour class again from Ohio State University Extension and complete and sign the forms, submit an application and then pay a $30 fee to the Ohio Department of Agriculture.If you are a Certified Crop Adviser, you do not have to attend the fertilizer applicator training. We assume you have taken the exams, know about nutrient management and are already acquiring the required five hours of CEUs for NM (nutrient management), so you have the education. But you will need to show proof of your credentials and apply to ODA for the certification.If you are a CLM — Certified Livestock Manager — same thing. You already do the education, just show proof and submit the application to ODA.Find applicator certification training sessions from OSU Extension at: http://pested.osu.edu/NutrientEducation. Can I supervise a family member or farm employee to make a fertilizer application?Yes. A Certified Fertilizer Applicator can supervise a family member or farm employee without a certificate, if they are under your control and you supply instructions on where, when and how to apply the fertilizer. However, I cannot supervise my wife, since she is never under my control and she will not take my instructions — ODA may give me some leeway on this one.This is a long way down the road, but will I need to recertify and how will I do so?Folks are actually thinking ahead on this subject, and yes there will be a recertification process. Our first goal is to get the approximately 18,000 applicators trained in the two- or the three-hour program. This will need to be completed by September 2017, so the group we trained in late 2014 and early 2015 will recertify in 2018. Again, Ohio State University Extension will do the training and ODA will be the agency who will actually certify you in this process.In the future, for Licensed Pesticide Applicators the renewal or recertification will be done together in the same year. There is only one renewal fee and that is the same $30 you pay now for your Pesticide license renewal.For the non-pesticide licensed fertilizer applicators, this will be in the year of their first certification — 2015, 2016 or 2017. Then they will renew in 2018, 2019 or 2020, respectively. They will pay a $30 renewal fee. Do I need a nutrient management plan?The quick answer is yes. But it isn’t necessarily required.Included in the SB150 law is a provision that if:You are certified to apply fertilizerYou keep the records of application and weather at applicationAnd you develop and get approved a Voluntary Nutrient Management PlanThen yes a nutrient management plan can be used as part of an affirmative defense against a private civil action. This means that if you are sued by a neighbor for movement of nutrients off-site then being certified, having records and a nutrient management plan can be used in court to defend your actions. (I am not a lawyer, this is not to be construed as legal advice, I am just trying to pass on some education in the matter. As always contact your own lawyer for legal advice).The deeper question is, “Should you have a plan to manage nutrients?”And the answer is definitely yes. One way we think we can manage the nutrient loss problem is to know what nutrients we have available in our soils to understand what risk we have for loss of nutrients and to know how much we should apply to maintain our crops. With a nutrient management plan, we can answer the concerns and better manage nitrogen and phosphorus to reduce nutrient loss from our fields.Please contact your local Soil & Water Conservation District office to learn how to get started on a nutrient management plan. In northwest Ohio, some OSU Extension offices (Defiance, Fulton, Paulding and Wood) also have put plan writers on board. For the do-it-yourselfer, OSU has a Nutrient Management Workbook to develop your own plan, designed originally as a manure management tool. This also works for commercial fertilizer. Its available in hard copy at some Extension or SWCD offices and on-line at: http://agcrops.osu.edu/sites/agcrops/files/imce/fertility/NutrientManagementWorkbookRelease3.5.1.xlsm. I want to buy manure from a nearby livestock operation and they say I need to be certified to take the material?Yes, this is now true. As of July 2015 no person may apply manure from a concentrated animal feeding facility without a permit from ODA, unless you are a Certified Livestock Manager or you are certified through the Fertilizer Applicator Certification Training through the FACT programs that Extension is providing around the state. Again this is the two- or three-hour program we provide. Schedules are available at: http://pested.osu.edu/NutrientEducation. Records – what do I need to keep?Within 24 hours of nutrient application, record: Name of fertilizer certificate holder Name of applicator working under direct supervision of certificate holder (if any) Date of application Location (field ID, farm) Fertilizer analysis (such as 11-52-0) Rate of fertilizer application (pounds per acre) and total amount applied Fertilizer application method (surface-applied, incorporated, etc) Soil conditions For surface applications only: is ground frozen or snow covered? Temperature and precipitation during application and weather forecast for day following application.Oh, and keep those records of your nutrient application for three years. One very good place to get and print off the weather records and a forecast is http://weather.gov. I live in northwest Ohio – what does Senate Bill 1 mean?For applications of granular fertilizer (defined as nitrogen or phosphorous) or manure in the western Lake Erie basin, a person may not apply:(1) On snow-covered or frozen soil(2) When the top two inches of soil are saturated from precipitation(3) When the local weather forecast prediction for the application area contains greater than a 50% chance of precipitation exceeding: one inch in a 12 hour period for granular fertilizer one-half inch in a 24 hour period for manureunless the fertilizer/nutrient is injected into the ground, incorporated within 24 hours of surface application or applied to a growing crop.This affects all or part of 24 counties in northwest Ohio. Senate Bill 1 applies to manure application as well as fertilizer. Manure wasn’t necessarily considered in SB 150. Rumors have it that SB 1 will likely be extended to all of Ohio in the not too distant future.last_img read more

first_imgTagsTransfersLoan MarketAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say DONE DEAL: Peterborough sign Brighton defender Ben Whiteby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the lovePeterborough United have signed defenders Ben White and Daniel Lafferty on loan from Brighton & Hove Albion and Sheffield United respectively.Both players have joined the League One side until the end of the campaign.White, 21, spent last term on loan with Newport County and has featured for the Seagulls’ Under-21 side in 2018-19.Seagulls boss Chris Hughton said, “This move is one which allows Ben to play regular first-team football at a good level for his development. At this stage of his career it’s important that he continues to gain as much match experience as possible.“He’s someone who we’ve had around the first-team squad for the first half of the campaign, but with competition for places increased with the return of Dan Burn from Wigan, this gives him the chance to go out and play regular football at a level higher than he experienced last season.” last_img read more

Video: Devin Gardner Responds To Teammate Devin Funchess’ Dunk Video With One Of His Own

first_imgView of a Michigan Wolverines football helmet before their game against the Utah Utes.SALT LAKE CITY, UT – SEPTEMBER 3: View of a Michigan Wolverines football helmet before their game against the Utah Utes at Rice-Eccles Stadium on September 3, 2015 in Salt Lake City, Utah. (Photo by Gene Sweeney Jr/Getty Images)Apparently wide receiver Devin Funchess is not the only recent Michigan football player who can throw down. After seeing Funchess’ impressive dunk on Instagram on Sunday, quarterback Devin Gardner decided to make one of his own.Gardner’s dunks are definitely impressive, especially for someone who focuses on another sport, but we’ll have to award this impromptu Wolverine dunk contest to Funchess. That vertical leaping ability is sure to impress NFL scouts in the coming weeks during the combine and other draft preparation events.last_img read more

Football Wayne Davis announces transfer from Ohio State

Redshirt sophomore safety Wayne Davis announced his intentions to transfer from Ohio State to continue his collegiate career elsewhere via Twitter on Thursday.New Chapter #GodsPlan pic.twitter.com/O7KYcQeDi7— Wayne Davis Jr (@Waynedavis1_) May 10, 2018Davis had three years of eligibility remaining, but did not see meaningful time at Ohio State, and looked to be remaining on the sidelines for the upcoming season.A consensus four-star recruit out of high school, Davis redshirted the 2016 season, but appeared in only two games for a total of 10 snaps last season. He was listed as the 335th prospect in the 2016 class, the 33rd cornerback and No. 7 prospect in the state of Virginia, according to 247Sports composite rankings.Following Davis’ transfer, Ohio State is now down to 85 scholarships, the mandated number the NCAA requires from any college team.Davis was unlikely to see playing time given the depth of safeties at Ohio State. Junior safety Jordan Fuller, who has already been announced as a probable starter, will likely be paired up with either sophomore Isaiah Pryor, sophomore Brendan White or redshirt sophomore Jahsen Wint for the 2018 season. read more

Dry Weather Continues To Challenge Firefighters As New Management Team Takes Over

first_imgHomer Electric Association joined firefighters Monday to inspect the transmission line corridor north of the highway, planning further fire risk mitigation this week before the line is turned back on. Crews have remained busy with mop-up and suppression repair along 18 miles of firebreak north of the Sterling Highway and along the East Fork Moose River, where they kept mopping-up hot spots and burning out green pockets of black spruce. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Last updated on July 5th, 2019 at 06:33 amThe Swan Lake Fire is estimated at 77,732 acres with roughly 454 crew members and is currently at 14% containment, according to Jonathan Ashford, a spokesman for the Alaska Incident Management Team there was no fly over measurement taken on Tuesday. Firelines east of the Sterling community have remained strong as hot, dry weather tested firefighters’ work. Hot, dry weather combined with dry black spruce stands will challenge firefighters all week. The Alaska Black Team is approaching the end of their assignment.  Type 2 Incident Management Team Northwest 13 shadowed the Alaska Team on Tuesday in preparation of assuming command of the fire Wednesday morning. Ashford: “There’s a lot that goes into that, but one that will remain in place is there has been a lot of communication over the last couple days. We have been discussing what has been happening, and what the goals are. The Refuge and other agencies involved have been a part of those discussions.”  Ashford: “You won’t see as much work along the highway while crews continue to work on that southwest corner as we try to complete containment line that heads up towards the East Fork Moose River.” Smoke and haze conditions on the Kenai Peninsula were moderate Monday.  Smoke remains a concern.  For smoke forecasts from Alaska wildfires, visit UAFSMOKE at http://smoke.alaska.edu. The Skilak Wildlife Recreation Area partially re-opened Monday to public use at Lower and Upper Ohmer Lakes, Lower Ohmer Campground, Upper and Lower Skilak Lake Campgrounds, and Upper Ohmer Lake Cabin. Skilak Lake Road, along with Jim’s, Upper and Lower Skilak landings remain open.  Contact the Refuge Visitor Center at 907-260-2820last_img read more

Firefighters Respond To Major Push In Swan Lake Fire As Heavy Winds

first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享These dry, windy conditions further dried out fuels yesterday and there was a marked increase in fire activity in several areas of the Swan Lake Fire. There was substantial growth in the Thurman Creek drainage, and in the Mystery Creek and Dike Creek drainages, according to the Division of Forestry. Large columns of smoke from these drainages were visible from Cooper Landing yesterday and are expected tobe visible today. After the cold front passes temperatures will drop but conditions will still be very dry. Smokeyconditions are expected to continue in Cooper Landing over the the weekend. This closure includes closures for the public use cabins at East and West Swan Lake, Trout, Romig and Juneau cabins. Aircraft will continue to drop water on an area of heat north of Upper Jean Lake and in an area northwest of Fuller Lakes. Aircraft working in these areas will be visible from the road and motorists are asked to be alert for vehicles stopped along the highway and be aware that dangerous conditions can exist when traffic flow is disrupted by vehicle stopping to view suppression operations.center_img These conditions are forecast to last throughout the weekend, prompting Refuge Managers to close the Fuller Lakes and Skyline Trails. The Chugach National Forest has implemented a closure on Resurrection Pass trail from the junction of Devil’s Pass south to the Sterling Highway. Updates will be posted as they are made available.last_img read more

Air Force Contemplating Moving up to 800 Personnel to Eglin AFB

first_imgAbout 525 personnel, primarily pilots and maintainers, attached to three units previously assigned to Tyndall AFB will be reporting to work at Eglin AFB, located about 70 miles west on the Florida Panhandle, over the next four months. The personnel are assigned to the 43rd Fighter Squadron, which trains F-22 pilots; the 372nd Training Squadron’s Detachment 4, which provides F-22 maintenance training; and the 2nd Fighter Squadron, which flies the T-38 Talon and provides air-to-air combat training. But officials are contemplating moving a total of 800 personnel through next summer to Eglin as part of the transition triggered after Hurricane Michael devastated Tyndall last month. The three units are expected to remain at Eglin for the foreseeable future.It’s not yet clear what the ultimate impact will be for Eglin’s host community, reports the Panama City News Herald. Some of the personnel moving to Eglin may opt to remain in the Panama City area, Eglin spokesman Andy Bourland said. Installation officials are talking to local school districts and real estate agents about the potential impacts resulting from hundreds of additional families moving to the area.Last week, six F-22 Raptors from Tyndall AFB’s 325th Fighter Wing arrived at Eglin, the first of 31 of Tyndall’s stealth fighters expected to move there.Air Force photo by Staff Sgt.
