Sept. 30 is not so much an event as an accounting device. It is the end of the federal fiscal year. ? Congress’ principal annual duty ? is to pass the dozen spending bills that fund government operations, from the Pentagon to pest control, for the coming year. It is chronically unable to do so. Not one of the 12 bills has reached President Bush’s desk. ? The fact is, neither party has a particularly distinguished record (on budgeting). The last time all the spending bills were passed by the Sept. 30 deadline was in 1994, when the Democrats controlled Congress. The voters rewarded them by tossing them out. ? Congress (also) met the deadline in 1989 and 1977, and that’s it for the past 30 years. Various fixes have been proposed ? (such as) giving Congress 12 months instead of nine to craft a budget from what a president first proposes. ?
That 28-20 loss on Oct. 16 dropped the Patriots to 3-3 and included an uncharacteristic late failure by Tom Brady, who threw three straight incomplete passes with the Broncos leading by those eight points. “We made some improvements,” Brady said Monday. “We got some guys healthy, which has helped, and I think there has been more consistency in all phases of the game.” Linebacker Tedy Bruschi missed the Jacksonville game with a left calf injury and could play at Denver. He also missed the first game against the Broncos, the Patriots’ sixth of the season, then returned for the next game from a mild stroke suffered last February. Still, the Patriots are much healthier than they were the last time they faced the Broncos (13-3). Defensive end Richard Seymour and running backs Corey Dillon and Kevin Faulk missed that game but are back. The secondary is still missing safety Rodney Harrison, sidelined for the season, but is much more stable and productive. “It is playoff time and we had to take it to another level,” Samuel said That’s what makes the Patriots scary to the other three teams left in the AFC playoffs. That approach helped them win three of the past four Super Bowls. A win in Denver would leave them two victories shy of becoming the first team to win three consecutive Super Bowls. They even could be back home for the AFC championship game if they win and Pittsburgh beats Indianapolis on Sunday. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Three months later, on Saturday night, they return with a healthier team, a stingier defense and an NFL record of 10 consecutive playoff victories. New England trailed the Broncos 28-3 midway through the third quarter of that game after allowing completions of 72 and 55 yards and a run of 68 yards. They led to three touchdowns. But in their 11 games since then, they’ve allowed just four plays longer than 50 yards. Last Saturday night, the Patriots (11-6) came up with big plays of their own and beat Jacksonville, 28-3. They scored on a 63-yard pass play from Brady to Benjamin Watson and a 73-yard interception return by Asante Samuel. Wide receiver Troy Brown, sidelined for the Denver game, also scored a touchdown against the Jaguars. “There are things we need to improve on and get better by next week,” Brown said, “because it doesn’t get any easier from here.”

VALENCIA – Medical professionals could begin moving their offices as soon as this weekend into a new center in Valencia, one expected to compete with the long-established community hospital a mile away. Providence Holy Cross Medical Center, based in Mission Hills, is partnering with Facey Medical Group in opening the three-story, 80,000-square-foot Santa Clarita Valley Medical Plaza at the high-profile corner of Valencia Boulevard and McBean Parkway. Providence spokesman Dan Boyle said he expects Facey physicians to move in first. Dates have not yet been set for the outpatient cancer and imaging centers to open. Official opening ceremonies are scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Nov. 12. After the dedication ceremony, there will be free health screenings and other events. The center includes the $40 million Holy Cross Health Center with a cancer center, a surgery center, state-of-the-art diagnostic-imaging services and a laboratory where blood can be drawn. The medical plaza has an urgent-care center, physical therapy, a pharmacy and several offices that will house both specialists and primary-care doctors. Offices also have been reserved for family practitioners, internists, pediatricians, nephrologists, endocrinologists, gastroenterologists, rheumatologists and other specialists. Construction began on the center after Providence announced plans to compete with Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital for a share of the lucrative health industry in the fast-growing Santa Clarita Valley.
The submarine off Tory. Pic by Colm O’Brien.A fisherman described how his fishing boat had a close encounter with a submarine off the coast of Donegal – for the second time in less than a year!Seán O Briain, from Machaire Rabhartaigh, said that they were setting crab pots 14 miles northwest of Tory Island last Thursday when they saw the submarine coming towards them.The huge vessel then passed less than 200 yards in front of them. Sean revealed ‘Last Thursday about 11 am we were setting crab pots when we saw the submarine coming from the northwest. It went round in front of us, about 200 yards away.“We were doing a speed of about 7 miles, and although the general rule is that when a boat is setting pots or pulling pots, that other vessels are supposed to give us right of way, but not in this case, we needed to slow down to let the submarine pass.’Yesterday, Britain’s Ministry of Defence admitted that a Royal Navy submarine was responsible for dragging a trawler backwards off the Northern Ireland coast earlier this year.Seán told Radio na Gaeltachta that they had spotted a submarine around this time last year as well, and that on that occasion they also needed to slow down to avoid it. He said that they were lucky because they had daylight on both occasions and that they could see the submarine and change course to avoid it.Seán was speaking this morning on Adhmhaidin on RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta.FISHERMAN REVEALS HIS CLOSE ENCOUNTER WITH SUBMARINE OFF DONEGAL COAST was last modified: September 9th, 2015 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:donegalfishermansubmarine
