first_imgCUTLER BAY, Fla. – A gunman opened fire on four Miami-Dade County police officers during a traffic stop Thursday, killing one and injuring the other three before fleeing and triggering a manhunt across South Florida. The officers were conducting burglary surveillance when they stopped the man because he was driving a car erratically, police spokeswoman Linda O’Brien said. The man opened fire with a high-powered weapon without warning and fled. It was not immediately clear whether the officers returned fire. TV footage showed several officers briefly surrounding a house, guns drawn, before moving on. Others swept through a grassy area on foot and picked through a garbage truck. Several schools were locked down during the search in Cutler Bay, in suburban Miami. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_img1 Olivier Giroud in action for Arsenal Juventus are lining up a shock move for Arsenal forward Olivier Giroud, claim reports in Italy.The Italian champions have made signing a striker their top priority this summer and will approach Arsenal about Giroud’s availability should they fail to land their number one target Edinson Cavani.Juve face competition from Chelsea for the Paris Saint-Germain striker and the French club will only be interesting in sanctioning a deal that includes Paul Pogba coming to the Parc des Princes. So now, according to Tuttosport, Juventus are exploring other options and are eyeing up an approach for Giroud.Despite going through an inconsistent spell recently, Giroud is still Arsenal’s leading goalscorer this season with 20 goals and remains a key figure at the club.But the French international has managed just two league goals in 2016 and is now second choice behind Danny Welbeck.Giroud’s contract with the Gunners expires in 2018 and Arsenal are unlikely to enter negotiations with any club unless they receive an offer in excess of £30m.last_img read more

first_imgPrimrose with some of her litter collection!Primrose Rankin is a lady on a mission!What started off as an attempt to do a quick clean up along her own road, has turned into a full scale clean-up for Primrose and her grandchildren.A nana with seven grandchildren, Primrose Rankin has spent every spare minute over the last number of weeks cleaning up litter and rubbish dumped by others. “Now that I have started I don’t seem to be able to stop” laughs Primrose Rankin.“When I walk or drive along the road the amount of rubbish is shameful and no-one else seems to see it. I contacted the Council a few weeks ago about getting some help to do a clean-up along our road and I got speaking to one of the girls who gave me the number of the Litter Warden Martin Roarty. Martin contacted me and that’s how I got started.”“I am amazed at some of the things people throw away along the road. For instance, I have picked up a roasting tin, with the spuds still stuck to it. Nappies, underwear, drink tins you name it, and you will find it along the road. One day I found a bag with 80 green beer bottles dumped behind a hedge. I couldn’t believe that someone would do that especially when there is a bottle bank where you can dispose of the bottles free of charge up the road. I just can’t understand the mentality of some people.” Primrose is employed as a carer with Home Instead and finds that even on her way home from work she is stopping along the road to pick up rubbish. “I was coming home the last night and I must have stopped about 15 times to pick up rubbish along the road” laughs Primrose.“This weekend I cleaned from the bottom of Killyclung along Rathdonnell where the school is until I reached Trentagh School, then to Boyles Fish Farm and then from Trentagh School up by Clooncarney to Terhillion and then from Trentagh School the whole way to Kilmacrennan. I collected 31 bags of rubbish. I will contact the Councils Litter Warden and he will arrange to collect this rubbish from me.”Primrose is very grateful for all the support she has received and her greatest support has come from her grandchildren.“I have taken Amyleigh (9), Brooklyn (6) and Kensie (6) out with me on a few occasions and they have been a great help. They can’t understand why people throw rubbish and litter along our roads and Amyleigh passed the remark that even though they are only children, they are cleaning up after adults who should know better. These people who drop rubbish and litter have no shame”.Primrose has no intention of stopping now and will continue on her quest for a cleaner, litter free countryside.Martin Roarty Litter Warden with Donegal County Council has commended the great work that Primrose has done. “The work that Primrose has done over the last few weeks is outstanding. Every time I get a call from Primrose she doesn’t have one or two bags of rubbish for collection but 10, 20 or 30 bags and it is just Primrose and her grandchildren doing the work. She really deserves full credit for all this work”. If you would like to take part in the Big Donegal Clean Up by organising a clean-up in your area contact the Council on 074 91 53900 for more information.DONEGAL WOMAN HAS COME UP SMELLING OF ‘PRIMROSES’ was last modified: April 18th, 2016 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:donegalPrimrose Rankinrubbishlast_img read more

Armagh were now very much now in defensive mode and difficult to break down.Jack Roarty and Noel O’Donnell led the charge and the young boys from Sentry Hill dug deep and slowly edged their way back into match and with points by Jack Alcorn, Jack Roarty and Shane Monaghan. After 28 minutes there was still 4 points in it but a goal by Seimi Breslin (St. Eunan’s ) after a flick by Calvin Aidoo set up a grandstand finish. St . Eunan’s forward Keelan Collier scored a great equaliser from 30 yards after a patient build up by St. Eunan’s to seal a dramatic comeback.In extra time Shane Monaghan scored an early goal for St. St. Eunan’s but St. Pat’s rallied and a great goal by Oisin Grimley squared the match..
