The letter also confirms the location of their future mailbox. Losier says Canada Post will keep residents up to date on the plan as it progresses.Concerns were raised about those with mobility issues receiving their mail when Canada Post first announced their intentions to scrap door-to-door delivery, but now the company has started an accommodations program that will work with special cases and suit their needs.This can even include delivery once a week if mobility issues make it too hard to go to a community mailbox.Any concerns about the community mailboxes can be directed to Canada Post at 1-844-454-3009.Advertisement Door-to-door mail will be a thing of the past in Fort St. John by the end of this fall, Canada Post says. The community mailboxes will come to Dawson Creek in 2016.The company sent letters to residents this week informing them that their keys for the community mailbox will be available soon. They are delivered by default, but can be picked up if requested.Fort St. John already has quite a few community mailboxes, for over 1,500 addresses, according to Canada Post spokeswoman Anick Losier. Since the mid-80’s, Canada Post has been implementing the community mailboxes as a primary mode of delivery for new developments, so now it’s a matter of looking at the older suburban core.- Advertisement -Losier says they’ve been busy working on transferring Fort St. John to community mailboxes earlier this year.“We’ve been busy consulting with residents and the municipality, who’ve been really helpful in the process. The whole process started with an online survey that residents got to provide us with their concerns, some of their comments and criteria in terms of their neighbourhood.We had a 20 per cent response rate, which is really phenomenal – and we’ve used that as a tool to plan where the community mailboxes will be located.”Advertisement
FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — The fundraising through the last Heroes Dinner has raised $2,250, which was donated to the Honour House.Dan Davies, a City Councillor and school teacher who also contributes to the Heroes Dinner Committee, says the dinner is to recognize members of the community who are recognized as heroes — whether they wear a uniform or not.“There’s a lot of heroes in our community,” he said, adding that the definition of a hero is different for everyone.- Advertisement -The formal dinner started five years ago, and usually features guest speakers — such as members of the Fort St. John RCMP.The funding raised through a silent auction at the dinner last year will help fund the Honour House in New Westminster. The home provides free housing for people in emergency services, military and veterans — and their families — while accessing medical services in the Lower Mainland.The house stays open for accommodations due to fundraisers such as the Heroes Dinner.Advertisement Davies has been to the house multiple times, and says the impact of having a home away from home when a medical emergency ‘makes the difference.’“You don’t want to worry about where you’re going to stay,” he said. “This takes care of that.”Davies said the next Heroes Dinner will be in June.

Marty gets down on bended knee to propose to Linda at 1,776 ft!DD Exclusive: A Donegal man has become the first person in the world to propose marriage on top of America’s new Freedom Tower.Marty Curran made the epic 104 storey climb to get down on one knee to ask girlfriend Linda Cribben to marry him – but almost didn’t make it.Marty, from Letterkenny arranged the trip with friends working in the Port Authority. But the well-known DJ admits his love for Linda almost never soared to new heights.“We had to walk up the last three floors and I was green. I just wasn’t taking the height very well at all.Linda accepts Marty’s proposal“Linda suggested I stay where I was but I couldn’t allow her to go on without me.“In the end I got through it and I was so glad that I did. It’s had to put into words what an amazing experience it was,” he said. Marty had arranged everything in advance and bought a ‘promise ring’ at a Letterkenny jewellery shop before traveling to New York with Linda.On St.Patrick’s Day morning, Martin was told the trip to the tower was on but could change because of the weather.Martin had hoped the best he could get was up to the 80th floor as the top of the tower at 1,776 ft was still under construction and closed to the public.Work on the One World Trade Centre (1WTC), which replaces the infamous Twin Towers, began in 2006 and will be completed at the end of this year.The couple had to wear special hi-visibility jackets, glasses and construction hard hats. The view from the scene of Marty and Linda’s special occasionThe couple took a lift to floor 35, then changed over to a hoist to floor 80 and then another hoist to floor 104. They then had to take the stairs to floor 105 – the roof!“I couldn’t believe it when Jim turned to me and said we were going to have a very good view – from the top.“Very few people have been to the top of the tower nevermind allowed brought up to propose marriage,” said Marty.Jim gave Marty his cue and Marty did the deed by going down on one knee – despite the freezing cold, horrific height and wind. Jim even managed to capture Linda’s reaction on camera and video.And thankfully Linda, who first met Marty when she was a cocktail waitress in Letterkenny nightclub Sister Sara’s ten years ago, said yes.The couple were also invited to sign a special steel beam which will remain in the Freedom Tower forever.The couple have yet to name a date for their wedding but Marty admits his love for Linda probably couldn’t reach greater heights.“Now unless we get married in space….” laughed Marty!LInda and Marty’s proposal will be forever enshrined on the Freedom TowerMARTY’S LOVE SOARS TO NEW HEIGHTS ON TOP OF FREEDOM TOWER was last modified: March 28th, 2013 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:Freedom TowerLInda CribbenMarty CurranproposalTwin Towers
PALMDALE – A Palmdale woman whose infant daughter was taken away by authorities and died in foster care has filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against Los Angeles County and the state. Laura Fleming was born Oct. 11, 2004, and died Nov. 21, 2004, after she was placed in a Palmdale foster home. “Defendants … breached their duty of care towards the deceased minor, Laura Fleming, by wrongfully and negligently removing her from the care of her mother (and) failing to insure the adequacy of the care and home environment provided (by the foster care provider),” the lawsuit said. The lawsuit names multiple defendants, including the county Department of Children and Family Services, state Department of Social Services and the foster care provider. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals County attorneys and a spokesman for the state social services department declined to comment, saying they had not seen the lawsuit. When mother Jamie Fleming filed a wrongful-death claim against the county in May, she contended that the Department of Children and Family Services had accused her of being a drug user when her baby was taken away, but that no evidence existed to back the allegation. The baby was born at Antelope Valley Hospital and within a week was placed with a foster mother in Palmdale. The mother’s attorney at the time said the baby was born healthy. Laura was pronounced dead Nov. 21, 2004, at the hospital after she was taken there when the foster mother found her unresponsive in a crib, coroner’s officials said. An autopsy was unable to determine a cause of death. Homicide investigators concluded that there was no foul play.
