NBC won’t let Baldwin quit

first_img“Alec Baldwin remains an important part of `30 Rock.’ We look forward to having him continue his role in the show,” NBC said in a statement Wednesday. Baldwin intends to fulfill his obligation to the show, a source close to the actor said Wednesday, speaking on condition of anonymity. Baldwin and ex-wife Kim Basinger have been embroiled since their 2002 divorce in a custody dispute over their daughter, Ireland, 11. It boiled over recently with Baldwin’s phone message for Ireland, berating her as a “rude, thoughtless little pig” for missing his call. – Associated Press 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Divorced dad Alec Baldwin, caught yelling at his daughter on a voice-mail message, said Wednesday he asked NBC to let him out of his “30 Rock” contract so he can devote his time to the issue of “parental alienation.” “If I never acted again, I couldn’t care less,” Baldwin said in a pre-taped appearance for ABC’s “The View,” scheduled to air Friday. The actor, in a transcript “The View” provided to The Associated Press, said he also wanted to quit “30 Rock” so the sitcom and the hundreds who work on it wouldn’t “be hurt by the situation.” NBC, however, quickly shot down the idea. last_img

MAN BOUGHT CANNABIS-GROWING EQUIPMENT IN LOCAL GARDEN CENTRE

first_imgA Bundoran man bought equipment to grow cannabis at a local gardening centre before building a mini-drugs factory at his home.Kevin Granaghan appeared at Letterkenny Circuit Court after Gardai raided his home and found an elaborate drug-cultivation centre at his home.Acting on a tip-off, Gardai kept Granaghan, 54, under surveillance for some time before raiding his home. When they eventually swooped on 16 St Bridget’s Terrace, they discovered almost €30,000 worth of cannabis plants and seeds in sheds and in the home of Granaghan.The court heard that Granaghan’s home and sheds was set up to grow the plants in special conditions.The windows had been specially sealed to keep out natural sunlight and the electricity supply had been bypassed using special copper wire.In the garden of sheds at the rear of his home, a total of 67 cannabis plants and other materials with a total value of €29,800.There was extractor fans as well as power packs, timers, switches and special watering systems to produce both make and female cannabis plants.Gardai said they did not believe that Granaghan was capable of carrying out such an operation alone but was taking the rap for others.When Gardai raided the house under the Misuse of Drugs Act on December 1st, 2010, the front door of the house was open.Judge John O’Hagan asked if there was any evidence to suggest that he was supplying cannabis around the area.Gardai said there was no messages on his mobile phone or different bank accounts to suggest he was supplying.However the discovery of weighing scales and sealed plastic bags containing cannabis suggested he was part of a sales operation.Judge O’Hagan adjourned the case for a year to see if Granaghan stayed out of trouble.“If he keeps his nose clean then I will consider giving him a chance,” said Judge O’Hagan.Barrister Desmond Murphy asked if his client could apply for his passport in order to visit Nigeria where he had a child with a woman there.However Judge O’Hagan said he thought Granaghan was doing well enough as the normal tariff for such an offence was three years.MAN BOUGHT CANNABIS-GROWING EQUIPMENT IN LOCAL GARDEN CENTRE was last modified: July 13th, 2012 by StephenShare 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:bundorancannabisdrugsKevin Granaghanlast_img read more

Deputies try out new tool

first_img Station deputies will start using the flashlights in the field on Tuesday, said Anderson. Over the next six-month appraisal period, deputies will be asked to complete a monthly report on their effectiveness, he added. “We are always trying to find better weapons that allow us to arrest someone without the use of deadly force,’ said Anderson. “Our hope is one will save a deputy’s life and the board of supervisors will recognize the importance and purchase them for all the stations.’ @tagline columnist:Debbie Pfeiffer Trunnell can be reached at (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3028, or by e-mail at debbie.pfeiffer@sgvn.com. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

PICO RIVERA — Deputy Martin Ibarra felt pretty good as he finished up his first training session in the use of the Sheriff’s Department’s new pepper spray flashlight. “It’s perfect,’ said Ibarra, who works at the sheriff’s Pico Rivera Station, one of the first three stations to receive the new tool. “You have a flashlight on one end and a quick response with the pepper spray on the other. I will feel safer having this in my hand.’ The TigerLight Non-Lethal Defense System flashlight was approved for department use by the county Board of Supervisors this month in a six-month pilot program. Deputies in Pico Rivera and the sheriff’s Century and East Los Angeles stations are the first to be trained in their use, said Steve Whitmore, Sheriff’s Department spokesman. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week The pepper spray flashlights are like having two tools in one, he said. “Deputies have previously carried flashlights and (pepper spray) canisters separately in their belts, so there are obvious benefits to this,’ Whitmore said. “We just have to see how it all plays out and if we can move forward after six months and give them out to more deputies.’ TigerLight provided about 500 of the 23-ounce flashlights to the Sheriff’s Department at no cost. At a training session this week for Pico Rivera Station deputies, Sgt. John Anderson touted the tool’s advantages. “Once you get the hang of it, you will be able to utilize it in a split second and knock someone to the ground with a minimum amount of force,’ Anderson said. “It’s no different than any other type of pepper spray and will affect a person’s eyesight and respiratory system.’ last_img read more

Interim bridge proposal approved

MONTEBELLO – In a special meeting Wednesday, the Montebello City Council voted to support the installation of a temporary bridge to replace the Beverly Boulevard bridge, which was damaged by fire on Nov. 1. Dave Pilker, head of the city services programs for Los Angeles County’s Department of Public Works, told the council that a temporary bridge could be in place in about two months for a total cost of $732,000. The county is administering the rebuilding project for the bridge’s co-owners, Montebello and Pico Rivera, which will cost an estimated $10.7 million. In addition, Pilker said the money could be reimbursed from federal funds already approved for the bridge’s complete replacement, a question that the Pico Rivera council was waiting for before making a decision on how to proceed. “We’re here to make a decision about it today,” said Montebello Mayor Bill Molinari. “Engineers from both cities have concluded it was a safe and viable option, and we want to make sure all related issues are in place.” Molinari called the special meeting Wednesday to push forward with the fastest solution. In a joint council meeting between the two cities last week, Pico Rivera resisted Molinari’s insistence on a temporary bridge before they had all of the information – in particular the reimbursable costs. Pilker said most temporary-bridge companies cited a six-month schedule for installation. Ascrow Bridges, a Colorado-based company that specializes in temporary emergency bridges, was the only company that had an available structure and was therefore able to reduce the time frame to two months. “We can continue to look for ways to expedite the process, but our original schedule is already tight,” Pilker said. The temporary solution helps return traffic flow to Beverly Boulevard while allowing construction of a new permanent bridge to continue. It will be placed along the north side of the existing bridge to span the burned-out section, providing one lane of traffic in each direction. Meanwhile, the south lane of the new permanent bridge will be constructed alongside. Plans to replace the bridge had been under way for several years and, by coincidence, money from federal highway funds had been approved for a complete replacement of the bridge on the same day as the fire. Molinari said the city of Montebello already has its share for the project – $1,039,000 – set aside in a separate fund. pam.wight@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3029last_img read more
