CMLC seeks to protect farm, honor former owner
Blue Ridge Now - over 4 years
CEDAR MOUNTAIN — Except for the four years she attended college, Ruth Elaine Jones never left her parents' home and 59-acre farm on Solomon Jones Road until her untimely death in 2011 at the age of 56. “She could've left and moved anywhere,” said Jones' best friend, Beth Carden, who grew up half a mile up the road. “But she just loved her home and her family.” In her will, composed from her deathbed, Jones bequeathed her fifth-generation family farm to Carolina Mountain Land Conservancy, along with an undisclosed sum of money for upkeep and instructions to keep the property in its current undeveloped state. “I have no doubt that if Ruth wanted to sell the land and give the money to one of the children's groups she was involved with, she could have done that,” Carden said. “But it was so important to her to protect her land. She just wanted to make sure she could go knowing that it would be taken care of in a way her parents and grandparents would've been proud of.” To honor ...

Larry to head cast in city panto
Belper - almost 6 years
There is only one actor who can take on the role of a manipulative East End villain at the same time as playing one of the nation’s most sensible and loveable Dads in an award-winning comedy. Larry Lamb, original soap hunk and heartbreaker, star of stage and screen, EastEnders villain and Gavin’s Dad in Gavin and Stacey is to headline Derby LIVE’s pantomime for 2012-13, The Pantomime Adventures of Peter Pan as the dark and devious Captain Hook. In a career which began with Larry sailing the North Sea in the BBC’s Triangle, he’ll be docking the Jolly Roger at the Assembly Rooms later this year, bringing ship loads of pantomime-style nautical naughtiness in his battle to outwit and outmanoeuvre Peter Pan. Larry was voted Villain of the Year for his menacing portrayal of the ‘archetypal Mitchell’ in the BBC’s EastEnders. Having terrorised and tormented his family and neighbours, Archie Mitchell was finally killed off on Christmas Day 2009, in a programme watched by nearly 17...

BSkyB: Why we’re a fit and proper company
Yorkshire Post - almost 6 years
SATELLITE broadcaster BSkyB today insisted it “remains a fit and proper licence holder” as it remains under the glare of media regulator Ofcom. The watchdog is considering whether BSkyB should hold a broadcast licence in the wake of the phone-hacking crisis at News International, which is owned by BSkyB shareholder News Corporation. Rupert Murdoch, chief executive of NewsCorp, which has a 39% stake in BSkyB, was told in a report by a committee of MPs yesterday that he was “not a fit person” to run an international company. But BSkyB, which revealed a net rise in customers of 78,000 to 10.5 million in the three months to March 31, hailed its “positive contribution to UK audiences, employment and the broader economy”. mfl Page 2: 09:26 Shares in BSkyB were 2% higher as the update was well-received by investors. Richard Hunter, head of equities at Hargreaves Lansdown Stockbrokers, said BSkyB was “powering ahead” despite other “distractions”. BSkyB reported a 5% increase in revenu...

Local aces hoping for capital gains
The Evening Telegraph - almost 6 years
WERRINGTON Jogger Paul Halford will attempt to be the leading local in the London Marathon for the third successive year despite a less than perfect build-up to Sunday’s big race. The 38 year-old former Cambs Road League champion began the year with a successful warm-weather training trip to Portugal with former clubmates John Herbert and Michael Moore plus Cambridge’s Kye Liddle but in recent weeks has struggled with injury niggles. Injury concerns are the last thing any runner wants going into a gruelling event like the marathon but for Halford it’s nothing new and he’s proved in the past he can overcome such setbacks. An Achilles injury led Halford to consider not even starting last year’s race but he went on to break the magical 2.30 barrier for the first time and take the gold medal in the Welsh Championships, held within the race. Although the Welsh international doesn’t expect to repeat his time of 2.28.32 he hopes to go close to 2.30. Moore has also suffered injury proble...
