A judge has warned a young Fanad man that he is on a slippery slope if he keeps drinking.Shane Friel of Ballyheerin was arrested by Gardai outside the Empire Nightclub in Downings on June 10th last.He was told to leave the area after an altercation involving other people. However, he failed to do so and literally fell on top of Gardai and was arrested at 3.15am.Solicitor Patsy Gallagher said his client was more of a nuisance than anything else and simply could not handle drink.He had not been out for months before being arrested and drink got the better of him.Letterkenny District Court heard how Friel, 20, was now back in school and didn’t go outside his house now.Judge Paul Kelly warned Friel he was “running out of chances” and ordered him to pay €150 to St Vincent de Paul.JUDGE WARNS DRUNKEN FANAD MAN HE’S ON A SLIPPERY SLOPE was last modified: December 11th, 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:FanadLetterkenny District CourtShane Friel
Colin Kaepernick is speculated to have been blackballed because of his national anthem protest. (Scott Cunningham/Getty Images Sport)Free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick is reportedly set to work out with the Seattle Seahawks a week after Pete Carroll revealed he’s considering him for a back-up role.Kaepernick has remained unsigned since he opted out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers in March and NFL Network reported the Seahawks will have him and other reserve quarterbacks work out Wednesday, May 24, a change of plans notwithstanding. Former Denver Broncos quarterback Austin Davis also is set to visit.Kaepernick’s rumored meeting adds fuel to speculation that he could be joining the Seahawks after Carroll was asked if the team is considering putting him and fellow free agent Robert Griffin III behind QB Russell Wilson.“We’re looking at everybody. We really are,” Carroll told “Brock and Salk.” “We’ve been tracking everything that’s going on, and we’ve got cap and roster issues and stuff like that that we’re still trying to manage properly. But, quite frankly, yes, we are looking at all those guys.”Seattle defensive end Michael Bennett believes Kaepernick, who stirred controversy after his season-long protest of the national anthem, would make a great addition.“I think a person that’s dedicating their life to creating change, why wouldn’t you want that type of leadership in your locker room?” Bennett told 710 ESPN Seattle. “Why wouldn’t you want a young person that’s dealt with people wanting to kill him because of his choices in life?“So, I don’t know why people feel like that is a problem.”

Let us concentrate on this game first and if we win, then we will see what fate brings and the draw sends us,” he added.“It would be a fantastic situation to find myself in, and I would love to do it, even if I only got a finger on the trophy.”“We are in for a big challenge,” added Hodgson.How Joe Ward thanks his faith for his football Manuel R.

He says his group wants to see a comprehensive state energy plan that would prioritize wind, solar and natural gas.“We have all of these resources in abundance, so let’s utilize more of them, and less dirty imported coal.”The group wants the state Public Utility Commission to raise energy efficiency goals for utilities, and it wants regulators to make rules cutting methane emissions from the oil and gas sector. The report says these and other recommendations would lead to new clean energy jobs and economic growth.Dr. Ramanan Krishnamoorti at the University of Houston says the jobs angle isn’t the best selling point for investing in renewables, because those jobs require higher-skilled workers than the coal industry. But he says renewables are increasingly attractive.“Wind and solar will increase because of market forces,” he says, “because of the fact that they have become price competitive, and because of an overall cleaner environment that they lead to.”Hall says at the very least, his group will feel good this session if lawmakers don’t pass bills helping the coal industry, and don’t make changes to the state’s competitive electric market.

Justices say it ran contrary to the state’s law on solid waste disposal.More #whatawaste. @Whataburger please go #foamfree.
