Tejon Ranch to ban lead bullets

first_imgA 270,000-acre private ranch in the Tehachapi Mountains, Tejon Ranch is a popular hunting ground. Just 23 California condors were alive 25 years ago, but thanks to a breeding program, the state’s condor population has risen to 70, according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Parts of Tejon Ranch are important feeding and roosting grounds for the giant vultures, said Jeff Miller, conservation advocate for the Arizona-based Center for Biological Diversity. The condors have been seen as far south as Placerita Canyon and Bear Divide near Newhall. Lead bullets remain a primary threat to the birds. Tejon Ranch’s ban on the bullets was applauded by environmental groups and the Fish and Wildlife Service. LEBEC – Hoping to protect rebounding condor populations, Tejon Ranch will ban hunters from using lead bullets on the massive property near the Los Angeles-Kern county line. When condors eat game felled by lead bullets, they risk ingesting the bullets and getting poisoned. A recent University of California, Santa Cruz, study backed up the threat posed to condors by lead bullets. “We know that hunters are really conservationists; they know the importance of balance in nature and the value of protecting endangered species,” said Barry Zoeller, spokesman for Tejon Ranch. “So we’re sure that they’re going to embrace this change on the ranch.” The ban goes into effect Jan. 1, 2008. Miller offered guarded praise for the ban. “It’s fantastic that they’re the first major entity to go lead-free for hunting,” he said. “But the flip side is they’re planning some major development … that’s going to devastate critical condor habitat.” Some 1,800 hunters a year visit Tejon Ranch, which is home to deer, elk, antelope, wild pigs, wild turkey and quail. Zoeller said an alternative to lead bullets are those made of copper and alloys, which he said work just as well. The delayed in the ban allows hunters to test those bullets, he added. alex.dobuzinskis@dailynews.com (661) 257-5253 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Extra dose of reality due on tube because of writers strike

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhicker: Clemson demonstrates that it’s tough to knock out the champAs a result of the now monthlong strike by the Writers Guild of America, almost none of the most popular shows on prime-time television will be offering new episodes to viewers after the first of the year, or for the near future. In their place on the networks’ schedules will be repeats or reality programs, some of them returning but many of them new – shows like “The Moment of Truth,” a Fox offering in which contestants are strapped to a lie detector and asked about their most intimate secrets on a national stage. The flood of reality programming will be the first repercussion that many Americans will see in prime time from the writers strike, an event that has drawn relatively little concern beyond Hollywood and Manhattan. But the strike looks likely to continue; talks between the writers and Hollywood studios collapsed Friday, with the sides still deeply divided. While late-night talk shows were almost immediately forced into reruns because of the strike, those shows draw a small fraction of the 40 million viewers who tune in to the prime-time offerings of the four major networks each weeknight. The strike-fueled growth in reality programming also has the potential to change the face of prime-time television for years to come. Reality programs generally do not employ union-represented writers. While the most popular dramas and comedies will resume production of new episodes once the strike ends, the strike could mean the end for several new series, like “Bionic Woman” on NBC or “K-Ville” on Fox, that have struggled to gain a regular audience this fall. TELEVISION: Networks looking for ways to fill void left by writers strike. Each year television viewers emerge in January from the traditional December blizzard of holiday specials and college football bowl games seeking new comforts from their favorite comedies and dramas, shows like “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Two and a Half Men” and “House.” Come January, however, they are more likely to be left to joust with the real-life “American Gladiators.” Just as the last writers strike, in 1988, helped to spawn a new form of verite entertainment epitomized by programs like “Cops” and “America’s Most Wanted,” the current writers strike will witness the debut of a number of new reality concepts. “The Moment of Truth” is but one of as many as 27 hours a week of reality programming that the broadcast networks are planning for the first quarter of 2008, according to schedules released in recent weeks and interviews with network officials. That appears to be the most ever for the relatively young reality genre and represents roughly a 50 percent increase from the 18 hours to 19 hours of reality programming that the networks have scheduled in recent seasons. New reality Among the new reality offerings is “Oprah’s Big Give,” a contest on ABC sponsored by Oprah Winfrey to see who can give away large sums of money to society’s greatest benefit. ABC has long planned to have the series premiere in early 2008, but its potential effect on the network’s ratings is now more important, given that the network’s most successful shows will be appearing in reruns. At the other end of the spectrum is “American Gladiators” on NBC, a revival of a late-1980s competition that pits contestants against professional athletes in feats of strength, and “When Women Rule the World,” a Fox series that features male contestants trying to survive in an environment ruled by women. Not all of the comedies and dramas in prime time will be repeats. Some returning series have long been scheduled to resume their run after the first of the year, including “Lost” on ABC and “Medium” on NBC. Some new series also had been set for premieres in January, including “Eli Stone” on ABC and “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” on Fox. In addition, some continuing series have one or more individual episodes remaining, including most of the police dramas on CBS. The deluge of new reality programming has become necessary because, in the weeks since the members of the Writers Guild of America stopped working on Nov. 5, nearly all comedy and drama series have shut down production for lack of new scripts. The writers are seeking a deal that will give them a share of the profits derived from the use of their material on the Internet and in other electronic media. Filling schedules The networks are now using the strike as an opportunity to fill their schedules with less-expensive reality programming. Leslie Moonves, the chief executive of CBS, said as much at an investor conference on Dec. 4. “We have added a number of reality programs to February,” Moonves said. “We have a lot of terrific plans, and ratings probably will not be as high without the influx of all of our great original programming. But by the same token, costs will be down considerably.” Laurie Ouellette, an associate professor of communications studies at the University of Minnesota, said that after growing steadily in the first half of the decade, the amount of prime-time programming devoted to reality shows had remained relatively flat since 2005. That was thanks in part to the emergence of a new crop of popular dramas, including “House,” “Desperate Housewives” and “Criminal Minds.” “But many of those programs are going to be in hiatus because of the strike,” Ouellette said. “And the networks are responding to the need to come up with shows that are a cost-effective solution to that problem.” Reality shows, which generally cost $1 million per hour to produce, are far less expensive than most prime-time dramas, which can cost $2 million to $3 million per episode. CBS is in many ways responsible for the recent growth of reality programming. After the initial success in 2000 of “Survivor,” the network’s groundbreaking castaway competition, the amount of reality programming in prime time grew steadily, from about four hours in 2000 to roughly 18 hours in 2005. After the first of the year, CBS will double, at least, the amount of reality programming on its schedule, to four hours from two this fall, including another installment of “Survivor,” the game show “Power of 10” and three hours of “Big Brother.” NBC will nearly double its amount of reality programming, to seven hours from four. The network has scheduled one of two hourlong installments of “Deal or No Deal” in the Monday hour formerly devoted to “Heroes” and given over the slot normally filled by “The Office” and “Scrubs” to a celebrity version of “The Apprentice.” And ABC, which has yet to announce formally details of its schedule for the new year, could significantly increase its reality programming from the five to six hours it has run this fall. The network is expected to bring back “Wife Swap” and “Supernanny,” schedule new editions of “Dancing With the Stars” and “The Bachelor” beginning in March, and add new series, including two more dance competitions. The ABC shows could account for as much as 11 hours of weekly programming, although it is unlikely that the network will schedule all of those shows concurrently. Fox, which schedules only 15 hours of prime-time programming per week, compared with 22 hours each for the other three networks, is keeping its total level of reality programming about steady at seven hours. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

GAA: MALIN 2-16, CLOUGHANEELY 0-01

first_imgMALIN 2-16 0-1 CLOUGHANEELYMalin recorded an emphatic win over an out of sorts Cloughaneely side in Connolly Park on Saturday evening, their 21 point winning margin, coupled with St Eunans victory over N Conaill was enough to see the Inishowen side qualify to the quarter final stage at the expense of last years beaten finalists.The home side dominated the opening exchanges but were finding scores hard to come by until a Paul Mc Laughlin point finally raised a white flag. Brendan Mc Laughlin doubled his sides advantage moments later after a great run through the middle by Declan Walsh. It wasn’t long before Michael Byrne increased the lead from a 45, By now Malin were in the ascendancy, and those early match nerves were banished when Gary Farren broke up a Cloughaneely attack and fed Stephen Mc Laughlin, the pacy attacker left defenders trailing in his wake, before laying the ball off to Terence Doherty who coolly slotted home past Mc Clafferty in the visitors goal. Anthony Kelly quickly added a point from play and one from a free to extend his sides advantage before Paul Mc Laughlin brought the first half scoring to an end to give the home side a healthy 1-6 to 0-0 lead at the interval. Malin began the second half in the same vain they finished the first and within minutes the lead was 12 points, thanks to 2 points from StephenMc Laughlin and one from Terence Doherty. Cloughaneely got the first and only point 8 mins into the 2nd half when a high ball was expertly fielded by Paul Sweeney and the full forward fired over with his back to goal. Any hopes of a fightback from the Falcarragh side were dashed after quick fire points from Brendan Mc Laughlin and Michael Byrne pushed Malin further ahead. Declan Walsh notched his second point of the night, before a brace from the impressive Brendan Mc Laughlin gave Malin a 1-14 to 0-1 lead going into the final stages. Cloughaneelys misery was compounded when a 50 metre from the boot of Anthony Kelly, somehow managed to find its way into the back of the net. Points from John Gerard Mc Laughlin and Michael Byrne brought the action on the pitch to an end. The night of drama was not over yet for Terence Colhouns side has they had to endure an agonising wait of 5 mins injury time in O Donnell Park, until finally the final whistle was sounded in Letterkenny and the news that Malin were into the last 8 was greeted by loud cheers form the large home following. Malin: Declan Lafferty; Daniel Greene, Damien Harkin, Finbar Collins; Ciaran McColgan, Declan Walsh (0-1), Paul McLaughlin (0-2); John G McLaughlin (0-1), Anthony Kelly (1-2, 1-1f); Stephen McLaughlin (0-2), Michael Byrne (0-3, 0-1 45’), Brendan McLaughlin (0-4); Terrence Doherty (1-1), Seamus Houton, Garry FarrenSubs Used: Jason Doherty Gerard Greene Seamus Doherty Cloghaneely: Sean McClafferty; Michael Lynch, Kevin McFadden, Ciaran McFadden; Martin Ferry, Eamon Curran, Declan McGarvey; Martin Maguire, Michael McCausland; Damien Ferry, Sean McGarvey, Sean Maguire; Denis Boyle, Paul Sweeney (0-1), Leo O’BrienSubs Used: John Mc Garvey Shane Ferry GAA: MALIN 2-16, CLOUGHANEELY 0-01 was last modified: June 30th, 2013 by BrendaShare 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)last_img read more
