She is about to embark on a trip to Haiti, one that as originally cancelled recently.“When we originally planned to go, the President of Haiti was due to step down from his position and wasn’t showing any signs that he was going to do so. This caused many protests and road blocks to be set up all over the country, some protests turned violent. After discussing with World Vision staff that are on ground in Haiti, we came to the decision that it would be safer to postpone.”- Advertisement -Taylor has made 2 major donations that will help children in Haiti. $5,000 was given to World Vision, for the Jaques Ramian School Project and $10,000 to @Freethechildren to help with the building of the Manac School Project which is also in Haiti.Taylor lists her new goal as trying to see how many girls she can send to school before she herself graduates high school in 4 years.Advertisementlast_img read more

Louise Breslin (owner of Laveesha) says an infusion of the following statement pieces can be incorporated into your workwear, as well as evening wear to escape the monotony of 9-5 attire. Laveesha founder Louise Breslin and her mother BredaPearls The word “pearl” traditionally conjures images of the sherry swigging brigade and sorority girls in matching twin-sets.

Laveesha curated a collection of pearl pieces with vintage-inspired designs that exude old Hollywood allure while simultaneously embracing edgier Karl Langerfield influences.

Lancaster reveals budget plans

first_imgLANCASTER – For the first time, city officials will offer the general public a briefing on the municipal budget. The 2006-07 budget briefing will be 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday in council chambers, 44933 Fern Ave. “Community involvement requires community knowledge,” the city said in an announcement of the public briefing. “It is the city’s goal to create an environment conducive to business success, residential happiness and visitor interest. By providing a shared-knowledge approach to budgeting and planning, the city hopes to accomplish that goal and further ensure that it creates a community of the people.” A public hearing on the proposed budget was held on May 23 before the City Council. The City Council is scheduled to adopt the budget at its meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2The proposed $219.7 million budget, up 6.1 percent over last year, adds 29 positions in the public works, parks, planning and other departments, primarily to help serve the estimated 5,400 residents who moved into Lancaster over the past year. The proposed budget includes $18.4 million for public safety, up from $15.5 million in this year’s budget. Part of the increased spending is due to escalating costs for police service. The city is planning to add eight new deputies to its Sheriff’s Department contract. Five will be for what is called target-oriented policing in which deputies tackle particular crimes or problem areas rather than handling general calls for service. Two will be motorcycle deputies to enforce traffic laws. The eighth will be an investigator to deal specifically with domestic violence. The proposed parks, recreation and arts budget is $12.3 million, up from $11.6 million this year. Among the changes being proposed for the upcoming fiscal year will be a series of four downtown street festivals instead of one. The budget includes $71.6 million in construction projects. Among those projects is the $5.6 million James C. Gilley Park, to be built north of Lancaster Boulevard downtown. Plans for the 14-acre park include two soccer fields, two softball fields, basketball and handball courts, and walking paths. The construction portion of the proposed budget also includes $4.5 million to repave streets, $5.4 million for drainage projects and $4.5 million for improvements to the area adjacent to the municipal baseball stadium to accommodate hotel and retail development. james.skeen@dailynews.com (661) 267-5743160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

CUSTOMS INVESTIGATE ‘HUGE RISE’ IN OIL SPILLS

first_imgREVENUE officials are investigating a possible link between a huge rise in the number of oil spills on Co Donegal roads in recent weeks – fearing that many were caused by illegal laundered fuel smugglers.Sources inside the government organisation say there has been a massive increase in the illegal trade as legitimate oil prices continue to soar.They are working within the multi-agency Cross Border Fuel Fraud Enforcement Group (CBFFEG) which was established in 2008 specifically to deal with the illicit trade in mineral oil in the border area. There have been more than 20 major oil spills on Co Donegal roads in the past month.Sources say many of them were probably caused by fuel spilling from illegal tankers.We understand that a major cross-border drive has been ongoing now for several weeks to track down laundered diesel plants and the trucks used to transport the fuel.Tanks of fuel are often hidden inside huge trailers. A spokeswoman for the Revenue Commissioners admitted that tracking down illegal fuel poses serious challenges.“It can be difficult to establish that diesel oil on sale at forecourts is, in fact, laundered fuel,” she said.Some operators dealing in laundered fuel mix the illegal product with genuine diesel to disguise its presence at the forecourt.“Often, the initial indicators may be a damaged fuel pump or other mechanical problems caused by the residue of acids left in the laundered oil,” the spokeswoman said.The organisation has appealed for information on the fuel smugglers.
