Power line failure creates rolling outages in Fort St. John

first_img“Now that we’ve looked at it more closely, we can see that we needed to actually affect a physical repair – replacing a section of the line,” Gammer explains.To ensure this repair is done safely and effectively, Gammer says B.C. Hydro now has to engage in the process of switching – temporarily expanding the outage area.“There are more customers out right now, but we’ll get those back on quickly and then the remainder will be back on, we’ve estimated roughly 6:30 p.m. local time tonight.”- Advertisement -Gammer concludes by reminding residents that the times posted are only estimates.“It may require that it is going to take more time.”Gammer suggest you check B.C. Hydro’s website or mobile app, ask a friends or family member in an area with power to go online, or stay tuned to your local radio news network for the latest details.Advertisementlast_img read more

The ultimate football stadium guide by the game’s biggest fanatic

first_img 7 2. MetLife Stadium, New YorkThis is the best stadium I’ve ever been to. Home of two NFL franchises: the New York Giants and the New York Jets. The 82,500 capacity arena opened in 2010 at a construction cost of approximately $1.6billion. I visited for a soccer friendly between Portugal and the Republic of Ireland on 10-6-2014. An awesome venue!1. Loftus Road, Shepherd’s BushMy second home and a lifelong love affair with my local football team from where I grew up. As the stands are really close to the pitch, there is no atmosphere quite like it anywhere else when Loftus Road is full and the place is rocking. I’ve currently been to 1,149 consecutive QPR home games – that’s every League, Cup, Testimonial and Friendly fixture since 28th April 1973.Follow Tony Incenzo on Twitter at @TonyIncenzo The train that sits behind Lokomotive’s goal Tony was in Naples to see Italy v Argentina at the 1990 World Cup 7 7 19. Laugardalsvöllur, ReykjavíkThis is the coldest I have ever been at a football match. With a gale force wind blowing, it seemed around -20° as I saw host team KR lose 3-0 to QPR in the UEFA Cup on 18-9-1984. In fact, the local people were advised to stay inside their houses that evening as a volcano was brewing in the mountain overlooking the stadium.18. Lenin Stadium, MoscowWhen I visited on 16-10-1985 for USSR 2 Republic of Ireland 0, it was the biggest crowd I have ever been in at a football match – a massive 103,000. This venue has since been rebuilt and is now called the Luzhniki Stadium. It featured heavily in this year’s World Cup finals.17. The Pontiac Silverdome, MichiganI went to one of the first ever indoor matches at a World Cup finals tournament on 22-6-1994. Switzerland beat Romania 4-1 before a crowd of 61,428 under the fiberglass fabric roof held up by air pressure. This unique venue was knocked down last year.16. Stadio San Paolo, NaplesI attended the World Cup Semi-Final between Italy and Argentina on 3-7-1990. This was an incredible occasion because Napoli star Maradona was playing for Argentina and he appealed for all the local fans to support him. So there were 59,000 Italians in the stadium booing Italy! Argentina won 4-3 on penalties after a 1-1 draw. 8. Anfield, LiverpoolWhen I was visiting all the 92 Football League grounds as a teenager, I deliberately left Anfield until last as I knew it would be a special experience. I went there on 31-1-1981 and saw Liverpool 1 Leicester City 2. Liverpool were invincible at Anfield back then but this pulsating match brought to an end their famous 85-match unbeaten home run in all competitions. I remember a Liverpool supporter screaming at me on the final whistle: “Don’t come back here for another 85 games!” I still have the signed number 7 shirt Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish presented to me that day as, at 17, I was the youngest person to visit all 92 grounds at that time.7. St Martins AC, GuernseyThis is where I saw my all-time highest scoring match on 30-06-2003 – Isle of Wight 20-0 Sark. It was part of the Island Games, which is like a mini-Olympic Games for small islands around the world. Sark only has a population of 600 so they did well to get a football team together. Their centre-half was 55 years old and the goalkeeper was only about 15, but he made a string of maybe 50 outstanding saves to prevent a world record score.6. Brian Wakefield Memorial Ground, NottinghamThe only world record for groundhopping was set on 20-3-2004. I joined 250 other football fanatics to watch five matches at five different football grounds in one day in the Central Midlands League around the Nottingham/Derby area…11:00am at Greenwood Meadows FC, 1:00pm at Pelican FC, 3:00pm at Dunkirk FC, 5:30pm at Sandiacre Town FC and 8:00pm at Graham Street Prims FC. This is listed in the Guinness Book of Records and we received certificates confirming the world record after the fifth game. I remember having a huge row with my girlfriend of that time because she wanted to go back to the hotel at the end of the second game at the Brian Wakefield Memorial Ground. But I told her there were three further matches to go and we had to complete the world record. Strangely enough, that day was the last time I ever saw her.5. Milltown, DublinI was born in Dublin and Shamrock Rovers were my nearest team. I first saw them play – at the ground popularly known as Milltown – on 13-9-1978 for a 2-0 win over Apoel of Cyprus in European competition. It was a lovely venue which was sadly demolished in later years. But I’ve been back to see Rovers play at their current home stadium in Tallaght – just around the corner from where I was born. In fact, when I commentated on the pre-season friendly between Shamrock Rovers and QPR on 2-8-2014, it was a career highlight for me.4. Stadiumi Qemal Stafa, TiranaI have visited 35 different European countries for football and my trip to Tirana was on 26-5-1993 to watch Albania v Republic of Ireland. It was such a primitive country that the whole experience was like travelling back hundreds of years in time. In fact, I had a huge rat in my hotel room and I called the police out to deal with it as the hotel manager was nonplussed. The three policemen who turned up chased the rat away into a hole in the skirting board and then asked if they could sleep with me for recompense. I politely declined.3. Feltham Young Offenders’ Prison, MiddlesexI got special permission to go inside Feltham Prison to watch a match between inmates team Phoenix FC and Hanworth Villa Vets in the Heathrow Airport Midweek League on 21-12-2011. I had to meet the referee and the away team in the car park an hour before the game. We then had to pass through four different security checks before reaching the football pitch. No cameras or phones were allowed inside the prison. The match itself was good and I formed the attendance of 1 (ONE!). There was another hour of security checks on the way out. Below, Tony lists his top 20 in a hugely fascinating – and hilarious – read.20. Bruno-Plache-Stadion, LeipzigI visited this relic of a venue on 23-7-2017 for Lokomotive Leipzig 3 QPR 2. The 96-year-old wooden grandstand is stunningly antiquated and the rest of the arena consisted of crumbling, fenced-in terraces. There was also a superb old train engine behind one goal as a nod to the club’s evocative name. 15. Vicarage Road, WatfordThe scene of another QPR promotion-winning match on 30-4-2011. That 2-0 victory against hosts Watford ended a seemingly never-ending 15-year absence from the Premier League for my lovely Rangers.14 Hillsborough, SheffieldI’ve made several visits to Sheffield Wednesday over the years. But the one match that particularly stands out is the day QPR clinched promotion to the Championship with a 3-1 victory on 8-5-2004. To see 7,000 Rs fans celebrating behind the goal on the final whistle brought tears to my eyes.13. Claremont Road, CricklewoodI grew up in North-West London and I was taken by my family to see my local club QPR as a child in the 1970’s. I’ve always supported the Rs as my Football League team, but when they were playing away from home I started going to see my local Non-League clubs – Hendon primarily, but also Finchley, Barnet and Edgware Town. Hendon’s ground at Claremont Road was where I fell in love with Non-League football in the 87 games I saw there. Sadly, it has since been demolished.12. Broadhurst Park, ManchesterI chalked up my 2,000th football ground visited on 31-8-2015 at FC United of Manchester 3 Curzon Ashton 3. I loved the fact that the FC United fans (as co-owners) had designed the stadium themselves. So they included a big covered terrace behind one goal and a standing paddock in front of the main stand. It was also a very friendly club and I must have shaken hands with most of the crowd that day as they gave me a warm welcome. Bringing the story up to date, I’ve currently been to a total of 2,233 different football grounds for matches. 7 If you are planning a trip with mates and want to take in a football stadium along the way, then the chances are @TonyIncenzo has been there.He’s worth talking to, which is what talkSPORT.com did to find out his favourite grounds. Tony sitting in the smallest purpose-built grandstand in world football Quite simply an awesome venue Loftus Road is Tony’s favourite ground Follow Tony on Twitter @TonyIncenzo 11. Civil Service Sports Ground, ChiswickI visited this little-known venue on 20-4-1983 for a ten-goal thriller which finished Inland Revenue 6 DHSS Newcastle 4 in the Civil Service Cup Final. The tall and rickety old wooden stand – which has since been replaced – shook every time someone got up from their seat.10. Wembley Stadium, LondonI’ve seen more than 100 matches at the new and old Wembley Stadium. But my favourite game there was on 24-5-2014 as my beloved Queens Park Rangers beat Derby County 1-0. This Play-Off final victory was quite simply the ultimate occasion as a QPR fan. A lifetime ambition of mine achieved to see the Rs win at Wembley. To do it with 10 men after Gary O’Neil had been sent-off and to score in the last ten seconds of normal time was unbelievable. In fact, when Bobby Zamora’s shot hit the back of the net right in front of 45,000 Rangers fans, that split-second was by far the happiest moment of my entire life.9. The Recreation Ground, HextonA hidden gem! I visited on 21-4-2013 for Hexton 4 Bushmead 1 and I sat in the smallest purpose-built grandstand in world football. It seats three people. This match in Hertfordshire was in the North Home Counties Sunday League Division Three. 7 7 7 Tony at FC United of Manchester last_img read more

Nevada officials reach out to Dbacks on potential

first_img Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation In Week 1, the Cardinals won a hard fought game against their division rivals, the Seattle Seahawks. “We are coming off a win last week that was big for us, we hung in there and found a way to win, Whisenhunt said. “Now the next challenge for us is to go on the road against a good team.”Whisenhunt hopes that his team is mentally tough and will be able to handle the task at hand. Defensive coordinator Ray Horton called the difficult matchup a “measuring stick game” for the Cardinals. However, safety Kerry Rhodes doesn’t believe that is the case. He already feels that his team is one of the best in the league. “This game just presents another challenge for us,” Rhodes said. “It’s just another chance for us and another opportunity for us to try to get better.” Rhodes said the Patriots are tough to stop because “they have playmakers at every position.” With an abundance of threats on offense, quarterback Tom Brady has a lot of options when he drops back to pass. Defensive End Calais Campbell thinks that the key to the defense’s success is getting pressure on and hitting Brady. “Tom Brady gets rid of the ball really fast, he is a great quarterback, Campbell said. “In order to beat him, that’s what you have to do.” The Arizona Cardinals know that beating the Patriots on the road is a tall task for any team, but they are primed and ready for the challenge. “When you’re going against an opponent that you don’t have a lot of information on from games this year and that you haven’t played in a while, there is always that uncertainty,” Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt said. “But our guys have worked hard, they are prepared and that will hopefully allow us to play fast Sunday, and that’s what it’s going to take.” Comments   Share   D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ Last week, Brady was only sacked one time in a 34-13 blowout win against the Tennessee Titans.
