SACRAMENTO – Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has “reluctantly” agreed with President Bush’s request to send California National Guard troops to the Mexican border to help federal agents, he said Thursday. Schwarzenegger said he decided to comply with the federal request because he is concerned about border security, including terrorists, undocumented immigrants and drug smugglers trying to sneak into California. “It’s not my preference to send the National Guard to do this mission,” he said. “But under the circumstances, \ to help the federal government to secure our borders because that is our No. 1 concern. I’m extremely concerned about potential terrorists sneaking across that border.” The 1,000 Guard troops will be unarmed most of the time and deployed in a support role – building roads, repairing vehicles and operating surveillance cameras – rather than directly patrolling the border and detaining smugglers and illegal immigrants. “With fire season staring us in the eyes, there should be no rush to send California’s National Guard to the border for an unfocused mission designed to provide political cover for the Bush administration instead of a permanent solution to border security,” Nu ez said in a prepared statement. Both candidates for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination, Controller Steve Westly and Treasurer Phil Angelides, agreed with the criticism on similar grounds, linking Schwarzenegger politically to Bush and saying the troops are needed elsewhere to respond to natural disasters. At a state legislative hearing Wednesday, lawmakers expressed concerns that the state had not fully studied the impact of deploying the troops and what effect it would have if they are needed in case of a disaster elsewhere in the state. The state Office of Emergency Services said it would run through scenarios to determine the possible impact on disaster response. Schwarzenegger said the costs, estimated at $6 million to $8 million per month, will be fully reimbursed by the federal government. The troops could be sent to the border as early as July 15, and the agreement calls for them to withdraw by Dec. 31, 2008, even if the federal government has not met its goal of hiring 6,000 new Border Patrol agents by then. Guard officials said the troops will be asked to volunteer for the border duty, rather than be ordered, and they have already identified 700 volunteers. While the federal government has suggested two- to three-week rotations, Schwarzenegger said that does not make sense to him, comparing it to rotating surgeons in and out of an operation every two to three minutes. Instead, the majority of California National Guard troops will be asked to rotate every six to 12 months, though a smaller number of specialized units might rotate every two to three weeks. National Guard officials said the force overall has about 20,000 troops, including 2,200 stationed overseas. With 1,000 going to the border – to join about 145 that have previously been assigned to the border region to assist with customs, drug enforcement and the Border Patrol – guard officials said they feel they have enough remaining troops to handle a natural disaster or terrorist attack. email@example.com (916) 446-6723160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The governor’s decision comes more than two weeks after Bush asked four border states to deploy 6,000 Guard troops to help agents. The president has the power to federalize the troops and order such a move, but has so far asked states to voluntarily cooperate. Bush’s request has met resistance from California lawmakers, who expressed concerns it would take Guard troops away from critical duties such as responding to natural disasters and would create a potentially dangerous militarization of the border. Schwarzenegger had also expressed logistical concerns but said Thursday that most of his questions have now been resolved. Assembly Speaker Fabian Nu ez, D-Los Angeles, disagreed with the governor’s decision.
Ladies Gaelic Football County Under 16 A Final.Milford 2-03, St Eunan’s 2-14ST Eunan’s U16 girls were crowned County A Champions after a hard-fought battle with Milford under the lights at St Mary’s Convoy on Wednesday night. A stunning second half performance by the Letterkenny girls saw them lift the title with more than enough to spare in the end.Both teams came into the final, having despatched pre-tournament favourites, Eunan’s seeing off Termon by 11 points while Milford defeated reigning champions Naomh Conaill with ease in their semi-final.The final had all started so well for Milford when Megan Ryan netted in the opening minutes to get Marty Barrett’s girls off to a flying start.But the St Eunan’s girls were bolted into action, with Niamh Harkin, Claire Doherty and Niamh Walsh pointing to get them back in the game, Walsh hitting one point from an angle more than 35 metres out. Doherty hit an equally fine point from the other side after a wonderful 40-metre cross-field pass from Eunan’s captain Anna Flanagan.As the Eunan’s forwards took control of the game, Milford needed ‘keeper Alannah McFadden to be at her best as she pulled off a series of fine saves – stopping four clear goal chances.But when one of those shots re-bounded the effervescent Laura Crossan despatched a wonderful shot to the top left-hand corner of the net.Milford did launch a series of raids into the Eunan’s half, led by midfielder Taylor Doherty, but the black-and-amber backline of Katie McGovern, Katie Hasson and Sinead MacIntyre were resolute and keeper Hannah McMenamin pulled off two fine saves of her own.At the other end, the Milford defence struggled to cope with Eunan’s full-forward Shannon Cunningham who wasn’t to be denied a goal, finally blasting the ball past McFadden to give Eunan’s a 2-04 to 1-02 lead.The St Eunan’s girls completely dominated the second half, with sub Laoise Ryan adding two more points, the second at the end of a wonderful move involving 17 passes and nine team-mates. In a hard-fought game in which every ball was contested, the Eunan’s midfield duo of Anna Flanagan and Katherine Kelly were outstanding while half-forward Niamh Harkin was at the heart of so many of their attacks.Cunningham, Walsh and Doherty were all back on the scoresheet as Eunan’s hit ten points in the second half.Half-back line Ciara Bonnar, Laura Kealy and Grace Harkin put in a huge effort, intercepting Milford passes at crucial times.They helped restrict Milford to just two second-half scores, one a glorious goal from Kelly-Ann Buchanan who buried a shot in the bottom corner of the net seven minutes from the end. Eunan’s brought on Ciara O’Donnell and Caoimhe Kelly to help steady their nerves but the Milford goal was to be a mere consolation for a brave Milford team as Greg Harkin and Eunan Walsh’s Letterkenny girls ran out comfortable 2-14 to 2-03 winners on the night.Ladies Gaelic: St Eunan’s girls lift County U16A title was last modified: October 21st, 2016 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)
GARDAI were hailed as heroes today after a dramatic rescue.Officers managed to persuade a man who was threatening to throw himself off the Oldtown Bridge in Letterkenny last night from ending the scene.Up to six Gardai were involved in the operation as a heavy build-up of traffic began to gather at the busy junction. Gardai with hand-held torches directed traffic across the bridge as a friend of the man arrived on the scene to talk with him.“Gardai at the scene were very patient and persuaded the man not to throw himself into the river,” said one eye-wtiness.“Thank God they arrived on time. It was very distressing for people who came across the scene.“We just pray the man is all right now and is receiving the help he needs,” she added. The area was sealed off for more than half an hour as Gardai chatted to the man.Another eye-witness told us: “I was in town to pick up a few bits and pieces from the shop and came across this.“Gardai were very professional. This is the sort of unseen work these heroes do.“They saved a life and they deserve recognition for that.”© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights Reserved The copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailySell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.com DRAMATIC MOMENT MAN RESCUED FROM BRIDGE was last modified: November 26th, 2011 by BrendaShare 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:letterkennyrescue
