Information regarding any potential suspects or even suspicious vehicles seen in the vicinity of the crime scene the night of the incident are all encouraged to be shared with the SPCA.Anyone with any information is encouraged to the South Peace SPCA Branch at 250-782-2444. Marcie Moriarty, GM of cruelty investigations for the B.C. SPCA gave a few more details about what was found on Tuesday.“The ice block, which looks to have been made from a large rubber bin, was left at the side of the road just a few doors down from where the corpse of the medium-sized black dog was found frozen inside a similar block of ice last year…It is absolutely appalling that a cruel incident like this would occur, but to have it happen again in the same neighbourhood is extremely upsetting.”The B.C. SPCA has obtained evidence from the site and is awaiting necropsy results of the deceased feline.- Advertisement -The SPCA is saying that unfortunately no one came forward with information from last year’s indecent, but is hoping that someone in Dawson Creek knows something that will help identify the individual responsible for this crime.Moriarty says that currently the SPCA investigation unit has no suspects, or evidence to any leads, but are actively searching out information.She said that last year there was no form of ID found on the dog, and hopefully some form of evidence or ID can be found on the cat following the necropsy.

Nestled in Pico Canyon’s rolling chaparral- studded hills, the town bears witness to history. Its namesake, Charles Alexander Mentry, was a rugged driller turned superintendent of a company later known as Chevron. Famous gusher part of charm Before its centerpiece gusher was capped in 1990, Pico No.4 gained fame as the world’s longest continuously open oil well. Monument markers remain at the well, named a national historic site. Once home to more than 100 families, all that remains are Mentry’s 13-room home, a one-room red schoolhouse and a barn. The conservancy is restoring the home and building trails with funds from county grants. In keeping with old-school practices, the group collected metal can lids to cover knot holes in the wood buildings. “To keep the bees and rodents out,” Skei said. Conservancy members stood toe-to-toe with firefighters in 2003, shielding the structures from being gobbled by a raging wildfire that tore through Pico Canyon. Skei has big dreams for the little town. “Ultimately, we hope this will be an event site as well, for community gatherings, weddings, picnics,” she said. Stevenson Ranch home tracts sprawl to within roughly a quarter-mile of Mentryville, and the 21,000-home Newhall Ranch project is planned to the north. Newhall Land and Farming Company, which owns Newhall Ranch, has dedicated about 4,000acres of mountainous terrain buffering Mentryville from the large-scale development. Skei said Mentryville will become a trailhead and trail hub when the Newhall Ranch trail is opened. Furry critters are already hip to the area’s wildlife corridors and habitats for the likes of black bears, mountain lions, bobcats, coyotes, mule deer and gray fox – every large mammal found in the Santa Susana Mountains. firstname.lastname@example.org (661) 257-5255160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Now, a conservancy group plans to spruce it up, aided by a recent $500,000 grant. Though not flashy, the improvements will make Mentryville more accessible to visitors. “Mentryville is close to our hearts. It’s a hidden jewel of Santa Clarita Valley history, and we know there are good things to come for it,” said Rory Skei, chief deputy director of the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy. Soon to be an isle of yore amid a sea of new homes, Mentryville will be groomed into a destination spot. Planned within the next two years are a park ranger’s home, public restrooms, walkways, picnic areas and interpretive signs for visitors.
The state has set $2.63 per square foot as the standard residential developer fee for financing school construction. In the Los Angeles County portion of the Antelope Valley, developer-fee revenue is divided among the Antelope Valley Union High School District and the individual elementary school districts within the high school district boundaries. Districts can charge more than the standard fee if certain conditions are met, such as having passed a school construction bond measure in the past four years and having 20 percent or more of classes in portable buildings. Six districts charge more than the standard rate. They are the Antelope Valley Union High, Eastside Union, Lancaster, Palmdale, Southern Kern Unified and Westside Union school districts. email@example.com (661) 267-5744160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

MOJAVE – A move to increase developer fees will likely return for more discussion after Mojave Unified School District trustees split on a 2-2 vote on whether to hike the levy that helps pay for school facilities. One of the two dissenting board members said she voted against the increase because it might discourage development in the area. “We’ve had problems in the past with growth,” trustee Connie Biehl said. “I feel that increasing developer fees discourages development. We want to keep it as low as possible so developers can come in and build new properties and increase enrollment.” Biehl and trustee Annette Edblad voted against hiking the fee levied on home builders from $2.24 per square foot to $2.63 per square foot, the amount set by the state.

Trustee Shawn Sprague was absent. Superintendent Larry Phelps said it is likely the board will take up the issue again at a future board meeting. He will have information about the fees other school districts in southeast Kern County are charging. “You don’t have to have developer fees. If you don’t, you have to find another way to fund housing for new kids that come in,” Phelps said. “We don’t want to stop developers, but we want to mitigate some of the impact (of residential development).” Developer fees do not bring in enough money to build schools but they can be used to pay for portable classroom buildings, Phelps said. Mojave has been growing by about 100 students yearly for the past several years, and housing construction in the two communities in the district, Mojave and California City, appears to be on an upswing, Phelps said.
Former Manchester United chairman Martin Edwards has revealed to talkSPORT how he was close to signing THREE England greats during his time at the club!Edwards spent 22 years in charge at Old Trafford and now holds the title of honorary life president, and he joined the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast on Thursday to reflect on his tenure and discuss Jose Mourinho’s current crop of Red Devils stars.But he also had a surprise for hosts Alan Brazil and Micky Quinn, admitting the stars he’d missed out on during his long reign at United, including three legends of English football – Paul Gascoigne, Gary Lineker and Alan Shearer.What an attack that would have made!Asked if there were any players he wished he signed during his Old Trafford tenue, Edwards told talkSPORT “There’s a few!“We nearly had Paul Gascoigne. We thought we got him, but in the end he went to Tottenham, and we also had the opportunity to get Gary Lineker before he went to Everton.“Alan Shearer was close. I’d done the deal with his agent and he told Alex [Ferguson] he wanted to come, but I think the problem there was Jack Walker.“Jack Walker [the owner of title rivals Blackburn Rovers] didn’t want Alan to come to United. He was happy for him to go to Newcastle, but for United it was almost ‘over my dead body’ for him.“Blackburn are only up the road, it’s a local derby and there’s no love lost between the supporters, so he didn’t come.”Listen to the full clip below! 1 Former #MUFC chairman Martin Edwards tells us the 3 players he missed out on signing while at the club.Imagine them in a Fergie side… 😱 pic.twitter.com/Dg1E3P75KK— The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast (@SportsBreakfast) September 28, 2017 Manchester United could have had an all-star attack under Sir Alex Ferguson in the 1990s

Share This!This week’s SATURDAY SIX takes a look at Six Family Friendly Desserts at Walt Disney World Your Kids Won’t Forget! Recent SATURDAY SIX articles have had us looking at some of the great drinks you can get at the WDW hotel lounges (such as the Northwest Exposure at Wilderness Lodge’s Territory Lounge or the Abita Flight at Port Orleans Riverside’s River Roost Lounge) along with some unique burger offerings on property including ESPN Club’s Old World Bavarian Burger or The Mad King at Splitsville. Today we are going to go straight to the end of the menu and look at some of the most unique, outrageous, and – at times – next level bonkers desserts on Disney property. So sit back, loosen up that belt on your pants, and let’s begin our list with…# 6 – “DESSERT”ED ISLAND (Todd English’s bluezoo)One of the most underrated dining experiences in all of “The World” is at Todd English’s bluezoo in the Dolphin at Walt Disney World. bluezoo is known for its world class bar that has one amazing cocktail after another (we recommend to start with the Burnt Orange or the Swedish Fish) but the restaurant’s dinner menu may be the true “best kept secret” at Disney. The Crispy Asian Pork Ribs appetizer is somehow better than the mouth-watering ribs at Morimoto Asia. On the way to the dining room, guests will also pass by a unique circular rotisserie that makes the fish being grilled on it seem to dance on the coals. On the menu, this is presented as “this evening’s dancing fish.” So with a sense of style, originality, and wit you don’t often see in restaurants, it is no surprise that bluezoo also features a Must Try dessert.The “Dessert”ed Island follows the grand tradition of Disney as it actually is based on story. This story features “a chocolate boat filled with vanilla ice cream sailing the Jell-O seas to explore chocolate island.” If more stories were like that I bet Millenials would read more. All of the chocolate pieces, including the ship and sails, along with the palm tree, are actually made in-house at the Swan and Dolphin. Just a spectacularly fun way to end a meal. ($9.00)“Dessert” ed Island. (photo by Brandon Glover)One of the “dancing” fish.–# 5 – Everything Pop Sundae (Disney’s Pop Century)No one believes this when I tell them, but the Everything Pop food court at Disney’s Pop Century is hands-down the “restaurant” at Walt Disney World I visit the most. Why? Because it’s the one place at WDW where you can get a Sloppy Joe. We all have that favorite Disney food or snack. Some guests love their Mickey Waffles, some prefer the cheddar cheese soup at Le Cellier, and others keep coming back for the bread pudding at ‘Ohana, but for me it’s the Sloppy Joe at Everything Pop.Many SATURDAY SIX readers know of the Everything Pop food court because of the infamous Pop-Tart Sandwich. An inaugural theme park Turkey of the Year nominee, the Pop-Tart sandwich uses Pop-Tarts as the “bread” for a sandwich that has egg in the form of a hockey puck along with cheese and bacon melded together in a twisted form straight out of John Carpenter’s The Thing. But believe it or not, the sandwich is not the only item at the Everything Pop food court which uses Pop-Tarts. The Everything Pop Sundae features six flavors of ice cream, brownies, bananas, M&Ms, gummy worms, marshmallows, rainbow jimmies, chocolate fudge, caramel sauce, whipped cream, Maraschino cherries and Pop-Tarts sticking out of the top like monoliths. You may ask yourself “why, gummy worms?” That’s a very good question. ($10.99)Everything Pop Sundae. (photo by Brandon Glover)Everything Pop Sundae. (photo by Brandon Glover)Everything Pop Sundae. (photo by Brandon Glover)# 4 – Chocolate Extinction (T-REX Cafe)For our next dessert we are going to head on over to Disney Springs and into the larger-than-life T-Rex Cafe. With stunning fish tanks, gigantic moving dinosaurs, and an Ice Cavern room which constantly changes colors, the description of “sensory overload” still doesn’t properly get across the experience. It is going to take one heck of a dessert to draw your kid’s attention away from all that is going around them, but the Chocolate Extinction delivers on that end. Here is the description of the dessert:A gigantic portion of chocolate fudge cake served with ice cream, whipped topping drizzled with fudge and caramel sauces and sprinkled with Butterfinger crumbs. Enough for four!They had us at Butterfinger crumbs. In fact, we might have ordered a side of steamed asparagus with our entree if they sprinkled it with pieces of Kit Kat, or a baked potato with some powdered Snickers on top. The Chocolate Extinction itself is impressive, and you get a show when it is served. In the middle of everything on the plate is a container of dry ice that provides a great smoke effect that cascades over the food. There are several large portions of the fudge cake (think of giant brownies), and the Butterfinger crumbs sprinkled liberally around the plate were as good as advertised. We enjoyed the treat in the Ice Cavern room, and the changing of the lights combined with the smoke effect was really neat to see. Unfortunately, you do not get to keep the cool shaker which contains the dry ice, but you will get plenty of looks from neighboring tables when this is delivered to your table.

Not the ideal place for photos.–# 3 – S’Mores Baked Alaska (The BOATHOUSE, Disney Springs)We here at the SATURDAY SIX headquarters have had a lot of “extreme eats” at both Universal and Walt Disney World, so it takes a lot to impress us, but we’re still picking our jaws off the ground after seeing the S’Mores Baked Alaska at The BOATHOUSE. There’s a relatively good chance the Titanic sunk after striking an iceberg smaller than this GIGANTIC dessert. While the menu says it serves “four,” that is apparently theme park bloggers because six or more regular humans will have no problem sharing this behemoth. With a graham cracker crust, rocky road ice cream, and a “frosting” of sorts made out of toasted marshmallows and Hershey’s candy bar pieces, this Baked Alaska is a first ballot dessert Hall of Famer. Stuck in the middle of this beasts is a boning knife that would make Jason Vorhees jealous, and your server can cut the Baked Alaska into as many pieces as you would like.Make sure you plan a trip to The BOATHOUSE on your next Disney vacation. Whether you enjoy the incredible blueberry lemonade or Mint Julep at one of the three bars, the filet mignon sliders, or any of the amazing fresh seafood dishes, The BOATHOUSE has something for everyone. ($40.00)Baked Alaska. (photo by Brandon Glover)Baked Alaska. (photo by Brandon Glover)A piece of Hershey bar juts out amidst toasted marshmallow. (photo by Brandon Glover)–# 2 – Kitchen Sink (Beaches & Cream Soda Shop)The iconic Kitchen Sink sundae at the Beaches & Cream Soda Shop may be the most well known desserts at Walt Disney World. Served in an amazing replica of a kitchen sink (which sadly you can’t keep – or buy – but you can get a cute Mickey Kitchen Sink version), this sundae includes “scoops of vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, coffee, and mint chocolate chip smothered in every topping we have.” These toppings include fudge, butterscotch, strawberry, pineapple, and peanut butter toppings, a banana, a cinnamon spice and an angel food cupcake, marshmallow crème, a brownie, Oreos, a Milky Way candy bar, chocolate shavings, milk chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, chocolate and rainbow sprinkles, maraschino cherries, and a WHOLE CAN OF WHIPPED CREAM.What sets the Kitchen Sink apart from most desserts – outside of the E-Ticket dish it is served in – is that a small production is made when the sever brings it to your table. The overhead lights dim, special lights come on, and all the servers get in on the spiel. It’s a fun experience. What’s not as fun is that halfway through eating the kitchen sink, everything starts to form together. For a person like me, who doesn’t like mint ice cream, each and every bite has a hint of every flavor, including mint. There is also a Chocolate Lovers version available which uses just chocolate, cookies & cream, and vanilla ice cream flavors, with just the chocolate related toppings. If you haven’t done it yet, experiencing the Kitchen Sink needs to be on your Disney Bucket List. ($29.00)The famous Kitchen Sink.The famous Kitchen Sink with the even MORE famous Disney photographer Tom Bricker (along with a lovely lady who is clearly suffering from Stockholm Syndrome.)Kids LOVE the Kitchen Sink!More! More! MORE!The Kitchen Sink, finished.–# 1 – The 10 Gallon Challenge (Whispering Canyon)You now can be the rootinest tootinest cowboy in the wild wild west with a dessert served in a plastic cowboy hat. That’s right, making its Disney World debut just within the last month, the 10 Gallon Challenge at Wilderness Lodge’s Whispering Canyon is a true Frankenstein’s monster. Like the Kitchen Sink, the 10 Gallon’er features chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, and mint chocolate chip ice cream. However we then step into the Twilight Zone with the addition of chocolate covered bacon, a full piece of apple pie (whaaaaat?!), toasted marshmallows straight out of a campfire, cookies cupcakes, brownies, graham cracker crumbles, and basically anything else lying around in the kitchen. It is bananas, literally, because it has those too. As crazy a concoction as this sounds, it actually fits in with the overall theme of wackiness that you find at Whispering Canyon. A wonderful addition to the Disney family of desserts, YEE-HAW! ($27.00)10 Gallon Challenge. (photo by Brandon Glover)10 Gallon Challenge. (photo by Brandon Glover)10 Gallon Challenge. (photo by Brandon Glover)–HONORABLE MENTION – Chocolate Cream & Crunch (Morimoto Asia)A dessert as beautiful as it is tasty, the Chocolate Cream & Crunch at Morimoto Asia features “mandarin orange jelly, dark chocolate gelato, and hazelnut chocolate crunchies,” but the real draw here is OREO TEMPURA. That’s right, deep fried Oreo is finally rescued out from the Minnesota county fairs and brought into the Orlando fine dining market. ($14.00)Chocolate crunch with Tempura oreos. (photo by Brandon Glover)–DOUBLE SECRET HONORABLE MENTION – Contemporary Signature Chocolate Monorail (Disney’s Contemporary Resort)Available exclusively at Disney’s Contemporary Resort (through the in-room service menu), the Signature Chocolate Monorail dessert is what separates Disney from the rest. Even the drawing of The Contemporary on the plate is made out of chocolate (we should know, we licked it clean.) You need to place an order for the monorail dessert at least 24 hours ahead of time, but it is something that can truly make your stay at The Contemporary extra special.

Share This!While watching the wait times at Animal Kingdom’s new(ish) Pandora attractions and Hollywood Studios’ new Toy Story Land attractions, we turn our attention to Epcot for an update on an ongoing analysis. The question is this:Our family wants to see Soarin’, Test Track, and Frozen Ever After. If we arrive at park opening, what do we do first and which one should we FASTPASS?If this sounds familiar it is because we covered this on “Which Ride to Ride First at Epcot” back in February. We had a whole team of touring planners arrive at park opening (some at the main entrance, others at the International Gateway) to try out all the different ways to tackle Epcot in the morning. Spoiler Alert: Test Track went down in the first hour.We still learned a lot though, and it turns out that Test Track going down is a common enough occurrence that it affects the theoretical optimal plan for Epcot.We know a lot about ride closures. We have 200,000 wait times in our database that reflect an attraction status other than “open”. We see how these unscheduled closures impact the wait times during other parts of the day. Our wait time models do a good job adjusting for these closures, but when it comes time to predicting a wait time in the future, we always assume that a ride will be open and stable. We do this knowing that sometimes the ride will not be open when you arrive, at which point we recommend to skip to the next step and come back later.At Test Track this assumption is wrong 40% of the time. That is not a misprint. Our database shows that Test Track experiences at least one report of “offline” on 40% of days since 2011. That’s a lot! If you look at the last 12 months it is double that at 81%! Check out Steve’s report of attraction closures and what to do about them.But, it gets worse. Test Track can operate at reduced capacity before, after, or instead of going offline. This is one key to the puzzle that we were missing. Sometimes our guests and our in-park researchers have reported actual wait times at Test Track much greater than expected in the first few hours after park opening. Our trusty Morgan waited 110 minutes when the posted time showed 40 minutes. God bless Morgan.So, for the first time, we have created a model that assumes a ride will go offline at least once during the day. If you have seen wait time forecasts for Test Track go up recently, that’s why. We think this approach makes sense for Test Track. The 60% of days when it operates without going offline our wait time forecasts may be too high and your touring plan will gain some minutes to use later. But, for the 40% of days when it does go offline your touring plan will be better prepared.Personally, I also think this research makes a strong case for selecting Test Track as your FASTPASS choice at Epcot. Test Track is a must-do attraction at Epcot and trying to fit it in as a standby attraction after a closure is a difficult feat. If you hold a FASTPASS for it and it goes down, at least you get a “magical” FASTPASS to use later (although it will not be accepted at Frozen Ever After).
