Cowboy star Prine to walk the ‘Walk’

Prine, who played cowboy Andy Guthrie in the 1960s television series “The Wide Country” and acted in other series and movies, will join James Arness, Rhonda Fleming and Robert Horton in ceremonies April 28, receiving a bronze saddle along San Fernando Road in downtown Newhall. In a common bond with his fellow nominees, Prine was a guest star in Arness’ show “Gunsmoke” and joined Horton in an episode of “Wagon Train.” He also worked on “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman” as well as films such as “Chisum” with John Wayne and “Bandolero.” The Walk of Western Stars honors film, stage, television and radio performers who worked in the Santa Clarita Valley, many of them at the Melody Ranch Motion Picture Studio at which the City of Santa Clarita Cowboy Festival is based.

GOLF NEWS: NOEL FISHER IS THE NEW CLUB CAPTAIN AT OTWAY

first_imgOtway Golf News:The club AGM was held last Friday night in the clubhouse, where a range of issues was discussed, but as is all too common in most golf clubs these days, finances was the main topic for discussion.Ramelton’s Noel Fisher took over the reins as club captain from Martin Duffy, and will start off his year with a drive-in to be arranged soon, so watch this space for the next update. Dessie Crerand continues in his position of President, Paddy Lynch carries on as Secretary, Denis Friel as Treasurer, Brendan Gallagher & Dave Hughes as Competition Secretaries, and Martin O’Reilly as club Pro. The only position still looking for a volunteer is that of Handicap Secretary, which should be of interest to any member curious about learning more about the intricacies of calculating Standard Scratch and cutting handicaps ! Full training will be provided to the lucky volunteer, but members should remember that the club belongs to them, and everyone should make an effort to contribute to it’s running. Good luck to all the officers in their new posts, and hopefully we can all look forward to another exciting and eventful year on the wee links of Otway !

MAC LOCHLAINN SLAMS ALLEGED HARASSMENT OF GARDA SERGEANT McCABE

first_imgPadraig Mac LochlainnSinn Féin spokesperson on Justice, Pádraig MacLochlainn TD, has today expressed his concern over reports relating to the continued harassment against Garda whistleblower Sgt Maurice McCabe.Deputy MacLochlainn said: “I am very concerned to hear reports that Sgt Maurice McCabe is still experiencing a campaign of harassment due to his role as a whistleblower. “It is entirely unacceptable that this should happen once, never mind on a continued basis and it is important to note that senior Garda management have a legal responsibility to protect whistleblowers and to thoroughly investigate these reports. “If we are to develop a culture in the public and private sector that facilitates whistleblowers to come forward and shines a light on wrong doing, malpractice or corruption, then it needs to start now.” MAC LOCHLAINN SLAMS ALLEGED HARASSMENT OF GARDA SERGEANT McCABE was last modified: April 12th, 2014 by John2Share 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:harassmentPadraig MacLochlainn TDSgt Maurice McCabelast_img read more
