Nevertheless, execution-style killings are clearly down, although U.S. officers caution against concluding that the death squads are out of business permanently.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The U.S. military has boosted the number of U.S. troops working with the police – and Mahdi Army chief Muqtada al-Sadr pulled many of his fighters off the streets under pressure from Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, his political ally. U.S. commanders have also said Sunni and Shiite extremists were shifting from the capital to surrounding provinces such as Diyala. All that may have also led to a drop in the execution-style killings. Bombings and other violence continue in the capital despite the crackdown; on Tuesday, three U.S. soldiers were killed by a roadside bomb on the southwestern outskirts of the city. The Shiite vice president, Adel Abdul-Mahdi, was slightly injured in a blast Monday that killed at least 10 people. And on Sunday, 41 people died when a suicide bomber blew herself up at a mostly Shiite college in eastern Baghdad. BAGHDAD, Iraq – The Baghdad security operation has been under way less than three weeks, but it has already registered a success: a sharp drop in the number of bullet-riddled bodies found in the streets – victims of sectarian death squads. The number of bodies found so far this month in Baghdad – most of them shot and showing signs of torture – has dropped by nearly 50 percent, to 494 as of Monday night compared with 954 in January and 1,222 in December, according to figures compiled by The Associated Press. Since the crackdown was formally launched Feb. 14, a total of 164 bodies had been found in the capital as of Monday, according to AP figures, which are compiled from police reports. The AP count showed 390 bodies were discovered in the same period in January. “The intensive security measures have forced the gunmen to leave Baghdad and quit throwing bodies in the streets,” said Kamil Abdul-Nour, a 42-year-old Sunni teacher. “Still, I am afraid that this phenomenon will appear again if the security measures end,” he said.
VICTORIA, B.C. – Halloween is this Thursday, October 31, and ICBC is reminding drivers to use caution and keep an eye out for trick-or-treaters as they roam the streets.According to ICBC, across B.C., 370 people were hurt in 1,000 crashes on Halloween last year, up from 290 in 2017.On Halloween night, when driving in residential zones, ICBC suggests that drivers travel below the speed limit. ICBC says children tend to have their minds more on treats than road safety on Halloween, so driving below the speed limit will give you more time to react if an excited child unexpectantly darts across the street.- Advertisement -In order to further prevent injury or death, ICBC also suggests that drivers should leave their phones alone and, for visibility, children should wear reflectors.For more Halloween driving safety tips, you can visit ICBC’s website.
Michel Platini has announced that he will not challenge Sepp Blatter for the presidency of FIFA.The 59-year-old Frenchman had been tipped to stand in next year’s election for the head of football’s world governing body.But Platini has decided to seek re-election as UEFA president instead, leaving the controversial Blatter free to serve a fifth term as FIFA chief.Platini’s decision comes as little surprise – standing against Blatter would have been an uphill struggle and would have meant the Frenchman not running for the UEFA presidency in March.There is, however, certain to be continuing pressure from Europe for FIFA to carry out more reforms and Platini remains unhappy Blatter, who was once his mentor, has reneged on his public promise not to stand for another term.Five of FIFA’s six continental bodies have already announced their support for Blatter, only Europe has publicly opposed him.Platini told a news conference in Monaco he felt passionately that he should stay with UEFA.He said: “Now is not my time, not yet. I want to complete what I have started and I want to go to the end of my contract with UEFA and if the federations wish I will still have a few years before this contract comes to an end.“I have thought long and hard but I never managed to convince myself that I had to go to FIFA.“I chose from the heart and on the basis of my passionate feeling.” 1 Michel Platini with Sepp Blatter
To celebrate the centenary of Letterkenny Golf Club, Declan O’Carroll will be launching his book “Letterkenny Golf Club – The Centenary Years 1913 – 2012 ” on Thursday 6th December. Only an author can truly understand the level of commitment and work it takes to produce a literary work of this nature.Over two years Declan compiled the history of the club and a photographic history with contributions from many people locally and further afield. You have already been issued an invitation to the launch at which, if you have not already pre-ordered a signed copy of the book, copies will be available to purchase for €25 for the hard back and €15 for the paper back. There will be a mulled wine reception on arrival and a trip down memory lane guaranteed. Celine Bradley will be tucking into her turkey this year after winning Turkey no. 14 with a very respectable score of 21 points. Marian O’Sullivan has added another bottle of wine to her arsenal with runner up 20 points on the front 9. One is hoping Marian does not forget her friends, when she hosts her wine and roses party over Christmas. Then again, Celine not satisfied with the turkey, went for the jugular in Turkey no 15 and came home with a bottle of wine to share with Mark. It is not known at time of going to print, what will happen the chocolates. That came courtesy of runner up to Eileen Keating who scored an excellent 18 points on the back 9 in pretty chilly weather to secure her Christmas dinner. Turkey and hamper competitions will continue to run until the Christmas party on 15th Dec. when presentations will be made.The one day Christmas Hamper Competition, not to be confused with the weekend running hamper competitions, will be played on Saturday 24th. There is a timesheet in operation and you really need to be out by midday if you want to get completed before light fades. The Ladies Club Annual General Meeting takes place on Thursday 29th November at 8pm. All outstanding prizes such as Bronze and Silver medals, Golf of the Year ( I wonder who that might be?) will be made. Of course we will also have our new Lady Captain take office on that night. On that note, may I express on behalf of the Ladies Club our warmest congratulations to Lady Captain Angela Kilgallen for an outstanding year 2012. Angela has represented the Ladies Club very well both at home and while visiting clubs throughout the year and her commitment to the position is reflected in the high esteem in which she is held, by all members of the club. Personally, I wish to thank Angela for inviting me to act as the Ladies Club P.R.O. Hopefully, everyone has had their news and results included in my weekly reports and I wish to extend my appreciation to the media for always making space to publish our news.

160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The NHL investigated a claim that Kings forward Sean Avery directed a slur toward Edmonton’s Georges Laraque during Tuesday’s game, but decided not to take action because of a lack of evidence. Laraque, who is black and a French-Canadian, made the allegation to Edmonton team officials, who then contacted the league office Wednesday. NHL vice president Colin Campbell talked to both teams and determined that no player on either side, or any official, heard a slur. Avery also denied the allegation. Campbell informed the teams that the league couldn’t corroborate either player’s story and therefore wouldn’t take action, and Laraque apparently has elected to not pursue the matter by filing a complaint. Avery and Campbell could not be reached for comment, but Kings general manager Dave Taylor said he spoke with Avery and Campbell and that the Kings consider the issue finished. “We looked into it and we took it seriously,” Taylor said. “We talked to Sean and he told us he didn’t make any comments, and the league looked into it as well.” Laraque, one of the few black players in the NHL, is a native of Quebec. Avery had already drawn the ire of many French-Canadian players for his comments about Phoenix’s Denis Gauthier last month. After Gauthier delivered a questionable, concussion-causing check to the Kings’ Jeremy Roenick in a preseason game, Avery said the hit was “typical of most French guys in our league with a visor on, running around and playing tough and not back(ing) anything up.” Avery, well known as the Kings’ top agitator, both physically and verbally, quickly apologized for the remarks. But among his critics was Edmonton’s Marc-Andre Bergeron, who told the Edmonton Sun, “I wonder if he’ll say that to Georges Laraque the next time he sees him.” Avery drew a written rebuke from the league for his comments, but no discipline. Voted down: The NHL players’ association is conducing an informal poll of all 30 teams to gauge support for a rule making visors mandatory for all players. The Kings took their vote Tuesday and unanimously were in opposition to mandatory visors, players said Wednesday. “I think it should be an option, but not mandatory,” said Pavol Demitra, who started wearing a visor after a potentially career-ending eye injury in 2000. “A lot of guys hate them. I used to hate them. I almost lost my eye so I started wearing one, but I would still feel more comfortable without it.” Team owners would like to see visors made mandatory, but collective-bargaining rules prohibit them from unilaterally making it a rule. Among the Kings’ 21 active skaters and one injured skater, eight are wearing visors this season. “If I was a GM and I was paying a guy a lot of money, I’d definitely want to make it mandatory,” said Craig Conroy, who does not wear one. “But as a player, I don’t think anyone should be forced to wear one.” Quick whistles: Coach Andy Murray said Valeri Bure, who has yet to play this season because of a back injury, could return to practice within a few days and is “probably a week away” from playing, barring any setbacks. … The Kings plan to honor Adam Deadmarsh, who announced his retirement last month, in a tribute as part of a March 20 game against Colorado, another of Deadmarsh’s former teams. Deadmarsh will attend the tribute.
