  • Former Motörhead Guitarist “Fast” Eddie Clarke Has Died At Age 67

    first_imgThis morning, the music world is saddened by the loss of former Motörhead guitarist “Fast” Eddie Clarke. Clarke was the last remaining member of the “classic” Motörhead lineup, following the deaths of Phil “Philthy Animal” Taylor and Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister in late 2015.[Photo via Official Motorhead Facebook]As the band confirmed via an official Facebook post on their Facebook page this morning, “We are devastated to pass on the news we only just heard ourselves earlier tonight…Edward Allan Clarke–or as we all know and love him Fast Eddie Clarke–passed away peacefully yesterday. Ted Carroll (who formed Chiswick Records) made the sad announcement…that Fast Eddie passed peacefully in hospital where he was being treated for pneumonia.” Fast Eddie was 67 years old.Fast Eddie joined Motörhead  in 1976, soon after the band was founded by Lemmy and Philthy. Fast Eddie’s time in Motorhead produced some of the band’s biggest hits, including “Ace of Spades” and “Bomber”. He left Motorhead in 1982 and later formed the band Fastway.As fellow former Motörhead guitarist Phil Campbell notes in the post, “Just heard the sad news that Fast Eddie Clarke has passed away. Such a shock, he will be remembered for his iconic riffs and was a true rock n’ roller.”Adds latter-day Motörhead drummer Mikkey Dee, “Oh my fucking god, this is terrible news, the last of the three amigos. I saw Eddie not too long ago and he was in great shape. So this is a complete shock. Me and Eddie always hit it off great. I was looking forward to seeing him in the U.K. this summer when we come around with the Scorpions…Now Lem [Lemmy Kilmister] and Philthy [Phil “Philthy Animal” Taylor] can jam with Eddie again, and if you listen carefully I’m sure you’ll hear them, so watch out!!! My thoughts go out to Eddie’s family and close ones.”Watch Eddie’s solo segment and commentary about the iconic “Ace of Spades” riff from the Ace of Spades DVD extras below, via MotörheadBander on YouTube:Rest in peace, Fast Eddie.

  • Parking Wars Continue in Red Bank

    first_imgRates To Increase in JulyBy John BurtonRED BANK – A recently instituted parking fee increase that goes into effect in July has downtown businesses and some elected officials crying foul and fearing its impact.Despite an outcry from the business community and from two of its own members, the Borough Council voted at its May 11 meeting to raise the fees for both on-street metered spaces and for those slots in the municipal-owned lots.Borough Councilman Michael Whelan, a Republican who took office in January, chairs the council’s parking committee and called the final ordinance “a compromise.” The final ordinance came after “hours and hours and hours and hours” of discussions with individual business owners and with the organizations for the business community – Red Bank RiverCenter and the recently established Red Bank Business Alliance, according to the councilman.The borough council vote for the ordinance was 4-2, with Whelan and fellow Republicans Mark Taylor and Linda Schwabenbauer and Democrat Kathy Horgan voting in favor and Democrat Ed Zipprich and independent Cindy Burnham opposing it.“It’s a fair compromise,” Whelan maintained about what was finally adopted by the governing body. Whelan also said that the conversations with merchants in the downtown business district found, “They respected us and we listened to them.”And Jay Herman, a member of RiverCenter’s executive committee, and a longstanding commercial property owner, echoed that respectful tone commenting that the council is made up of “hardworking, honest and sincere people who really want to do the right thing.”“But,” Herman continued, “We think it is a grand mistake,” believing it can’t help but have a negative impact on local businesses and the community.Anthony Barbero, chief operating officer of Industry magazine, whose wife owns and operates CoCo Pari, a Broad Street women’s boutique, was blunt, saying he believed the elected officials “should have their heads examined. They actually need help,” he said, believing this action hurts business and the entire community while they’re “fighting over quarters,” and lacking vision for the community’s future.The ordinance raises the cost of parking in the municipal lots to $1 an hour from the current 50 cents; on-street meters would jump from the $1 an hour to $1.50 per hour. Permit parking passes would also rise, going from $135 to $180 for a 30-day permit, from $200 to $275 for a three-month permit and from $400 to $500 for six months.Initially there were discussions about extending meter-feeding time past the current 6 p.m. to later in the evening; actually having higher rates than those just approved; and doubling the minimum cost to park in the lot from its current one-hour minimum. But these provisions were abandoned as part of the compromise Whelan spoke about. He also called the cost hike a “rate adjustment” given its been years since the meter price had been last adjusted; and even with the increases it’s less than what it cost to park in Long Branch or Asbury Park. (Asbury also requires paying meters until midnight.)The increases were broached in discussions between Whelan and the council finance committee, looking at ways to offset the expected tax increase when the municipal budget is introduced at the May 25 meeting to make the Trenton-imposed deadline for the budget.“Every time you do one of these things, it’s piling on, it’s making it worse,” for the business community, said RiverCenter’s Herman. “The result is, if fewer people are coming to town, the businesses don’t prosper.” And that, Herman explained, has a negative impact on the tax ratable base, hurting all taxpayers.Parking meters in Red Bank.“I seriously believe for every dollar that they raise from the added meter costs, they will lose several dollars in tax assessment,” Herman warned.Commercial properties now account for 49 percent of the tax base, according to borough information.Red Bank shouldn’t be comparing itself to other municipalities, Herman maintained. Instead, he said, “we should be looking at the smartest, most sophisticated owners of real estate,” such as those who operate shopping centers like the Grove, Shrewsbury, and Monmouth Mall, in Eatontown, who realize the benefit of no-charge parking.Whelan’s two members of his parking committee have also offered stern criticism of this move. Both Edward Zipprich, a Democrat, and Cindy Burnham, an independent (and former Republican), were “annoyed” – Zipprich’s word – at what they saw as Whelan’s unilateral move to meet with the finance committee and move forward with an ordinance the two had issues with. “Then we never heard from him (Whelan),” until the ordinance was introduced, Zipprich said.Zipprich and Burnham – long political foils who rarely agree on anything – shared their opposition on this. This is the first budget by the Republican majority, established in January and for Zipprich “They shouldn’t be balancing their budget on parking fees.”“I know finance (committee) is just doing this to balance the budget,” Burnham echoed, believing “the council should look at other means to cut costs and save money.”George Lyristis, a partner in the downtown restaurants the Bistro at Red Bank and Teak and active in the recently established Red Bank Business Alliance, vented his frustration. “Anytime you make it more difficult and inconvenient for customers to come into the downtown,” Lyristis warned, “you chase them away.”Most vexing for Lyristis is that the additional money raised by this increase isn’t specifically earmarked for parking and road improvement. Instead, “They put it in the general fund,” he said, adding, “So my customers pay for a tax hike.”Discussion of parking always ignites passionate debates as the town continues to look at remedies for its decades-old chronic parking space shortfall. And those discussions seem to always turn toward talks of a parking garage – long advocated by the business community and some elected officials, but traditionally opposed by homeowners who fear the cost’s impact on taxes. It again has become a focal point, especially for Whelan who insists he’s committed to bringing that plan to fruition by seeing a parking garage erected at the borough-owned White Street parking lot.“This council,” Republican-controlled – “understands it,” what it would take to get the garage built, Whelan said. And “We’ve had discussions” with private developers for a possible public/private partnership to build and operate, he continued.Whelan is so convinced that it will happen that he and other council Republicans are promising a “sunset provision” for the meter price hike, pledging on rolling them back if the garage project doesn’t move forward by the end of the year.That provision, however, is not formalized in the adopted ordinance.Herman, who has been down this road before in these discussions of a garage and parking remedies, takes a wait-and-see attitude on the rollback promise. “All it takes is for the council to say at the end of the year ‘Well, we didn’t figure on this,’ or ‘We didn’t count on that,’” and that promise will be left curbside, he said.last_img read more

  • Donegal man who raped 14 year old is jailed

    first_imgA Donegal man who forced his way into a property and raped a 14-year-old girl in England over 40 years ago has been jailed for 19 years. John Doherty, who lived in Coventry at the time but now resides in Malin Head, pleaded not guilty at Warwick Crown Court to three charges of raping the under-age girl.According to the Coventry Observer, the jury took less than two hours to find him guilty of all three charges by unanimous verdicts. The offences took place in the 1970s when Doherty, who knew the girl’s family, was in his 20s.Knowing she would be alone after getting back from school while her parents were still at work, Doherty turned up at her Coventry home, confident she would let him in.But on more than one occasion, once inside he pushed her to the floor, he pulled down her underwear and raped her.The Warwick Crown Court heard how when she then tried to stop him getting in, looking out for him as she got home and locking the door, he took to parking his van away from her house. Doherty, now aged 76 years, then hid, and as she looked round and tried to get inside he jumped out as she was putting the key in the door, pushed her inside, before again pushing her to the floor and raping her.Afterwards, he warned her that if she told anyone what he had done, no-one would believe her when he denied it.Jailing Doherty, and ordering him to register as a sex offender for life, Judge Buckingham told him: “You were an adult. You were well-aware she would be home alone after school.“It was your arrogance and confidence in your ability to keep this secret that led you to take these risks.“She was a virgin at the time you began to rape her, and she was in her own home. It has caused her extreme psychological harm. “You have lived all your life commanding the respect of your family, friends and colleagues – but it was all a lie. They knew nothing of the truth.”Donegal man who raped 14 year old is jailed was last modified: August 26th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare 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)last_img read more

  • Website Targets LEED Program

    first_imgGreen is no simple businessThe Green Building Council also rebutted the broadside.“We can tell you that the recent claims made by the fictitious organization ‘Environmental Policy Alliance,’ which runs LEEDexposed, are false,” the USGBC said via email. “As a recent report by the District of Columbia states, Washington’s commercial buildings are exceptionally efficient, scoring on average 77 out of 100 on the ENERGY STAR scale, well above the national median score of 50.“Commercial buildings in the District of Columbia have reduced their energy consumption by an average of six percent from 2010 to 2012,” the statement continued. “These positive results are due in large part to the District’s use of LEED, the most widely used global green building program.”Johnson calls the LEEDexposed site an example of “astroturfing.” That phrase describes the antics of organizations that pose as grassroots outfits when they are in fact bankrolled by big corporations trying to to get their message out.Whoever might ultimately be funding the LEED-bashing site, it’s not the first time the U.S. Green Building Council program has come under attack. It’s been center-stage in such diverse public spats as the ongoing squabble over timber certification to a well-publicized lawsuit filed by Henry Gifford in New York over LEED’s energy-efficiency claims.In the end, it’s about who gets the competitive edge as green certification gains ground in the marketplace. The U.S. Green Building Council is, after all, competing with a variety of other building-rating programs, such as the Green Globes initiative mentioned at LEEDexposed. A war of words will help determine where the green certification money goes. Does energy use intensity matter?Among the writers who objected to the method as well as the message was Lloyd Alter at the Treehugger website. He focused specifically on assertions that large, privately owned LEED-certified buildings in Washington, D.C., had a higher energy use intensity (EUI) than did non-certified buildings. The conclusions evidently were extracted from a report issued by the District of Columbia late last month.EUI makes a lousy point of comparison, Alter wrote in a blog posted at Treehugger on March 7, and it’s no mystery why LEED-certified buildings might score higher.“In fact, this is often the case,” he says, “because LEED buildings are newer and modern office planning packs people in more tightly, with more computers, so that they use more energy per square foot … On its own, EUI isn’t a very useful metric; a bunch of rich old fossil fuel lobbyists in big corner offices are going to use a lot less energy per square foot than the kids packed into the USGBC headquarters.”Alter makes the connection between LEEDexposed, a group called the Environmental Policy Alliance, and Washington lawyer Richard Berman, as does Sara Johnson in an an article she wrote for Architect. Berman has a long history of taking on unpopular causes for corporate clients and was the subject of a 60 Minutes segment entitled “Dr. Evil”. A Washington lawyer and public relations powerhouse who has railed against everything from the Environmental Protection Agency to Mothers Against Drunk Driving now has the LEED building standard in his sights.At a website called LEEDexposed, the building rating system developed by the U.S. Green Building Council is attacked on a number of fronts: for its “questionable science,” its “arbitrary point system,” and its cost to taxpayers.It didn’t take long for the website and some of its claims to make a splash.last_img read more
