Facebook EXPECTED to last up to three weeks, the trial continues of a man charged with involvement in a “drug factory” at a derlict manor house on the outskirts of the city in October 2010. 41-year-old John McCarthy, 87 Cliona Park, Moyross, has pleaded not guilty to the possession of a quantity of diamorphine valued at over €140,000, for sale or supply, on October 15, 2010 at Castle Park, Ballygrennan on the Knocklisheen Road, adjacent to the Clare border.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up John O’Sullivan, prosecution for the State, said that the accused stands charged of being one of three men involved in a “bagging division of a significant quantity of heroin”.The jury, sitting at Limerick Circuit Court before judge Carroll Moran, heard that the three men were allegedly found at the area known as “the four walls” at the derlict manor house at Castle Park estate, after a garda surveilance and intelligence tipped them to the location.The court heard from Detective Garda Viv Downey, who was conducting covert observations of the three men from a hedgegrow where he and a colleague had been located around lunchtime on the date in question.He said that he observed the three men walk from the opposite side of the field towards the four walls area, and he said that he had “no doubt” that he recognised the accused as being a member of the gang. He added that the identies of the other two men became apparrent to him later.The jury heard that Det Gda Downey was with Gda Mark McGauley at an “observation position” within the ditch and that they had a clear view.After the three entered the “Four Walls”, Det Gda Downey said that he, Gda Mark McGauley and three members of the Armed Rapid Response Unit moved to a second position before the broke cover and raided the area where the three men were located.The jury of eight men and four women heard that the State’s case was based on the visual identification of the accused and that the gardai involved in the incident could clearly identify Mr McCarthy.The court heard that when the gardai broke cover, Det Gda Downey said he found the other two men with weighing scales, bags, and other drug paraphenalia and that this made up a bagging operation where he believed they “were preparing heroin for the street market.Under cross-examination, defence counsel Bryan McCartney QC, put it to det Gda Downey as to why he didn’t say it to his colleague that he recognised the accused, that he did not take a picture with his phone or even send a text message as this would have satisfied the gathering of material evidence.Mr McCartney put it to the det garda that in fact he did not recognise John McCarthy and that he was too far away to identify the three men.As the trial moved towards the end of the first week, Garda Barry O’Brien, a member of the Armed Garda Regional Response Unit, said that he was the first to enter the area and issued the warning that the rapid response unit give.He said that he identified the accused as standing “no more than 20 metres away” in front of him.Garda O’Brien added that he saw two other men also directly in front of him and that they were involved in the bagging operation.As he and the others swooped on the area, the court heard that he saw the accused turn and run into a lightly wooded area, but that he “saw him for a split second”.Evidence contnued with the member of the armed unit saying that he “recognised John McCarthy” and pointed him out in court. Bryan McCartney QC, put to him the matter of identification in the case and that he was the only person to identify John McCarthy, but that he did not record any of this or what McCarthy was wearing.The trial continued this week with evidence from other members of the garda at the scene, as well as a garda attached to the mapping section of An Garda Siochana.The trial is expected to last three weeks in total.

The Blog, Weekly Update On Wednesday, after repeated failure and obstruction by GOP lawmakers, Governor Wolf announced that he will be taking unilateral action to manage Pennsylvania’s funds and called for an immediate vote on a severance tax that is widely supported by Pennsylvanians. This action will ensure the state can make its commitment to school districts and other providers of services.“I’ve had enough of the games,” Governor Wolf said. “In the absence of a compromise revenue plan getting to my desk, I am going to take action to manage our state’s finances.”Ensuring that Pennsylvania’s most vulnerable have continued access to affordable health care is a top priority for Governor Wolf. This week, the governor urged the U.S. Congress to reauthorize the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). Congress failed to act on extending the program before the September 30 deadline, leaving the health care of thousands of children at stake.On Friday, Governor Wolf was the recipient of the PA Breast Cancer Coalition’s Pink Ribbon Award. The governor was honored for his support of women’s health care and his administration’s introduction of no-cost 3D mammograms. Earlier this week, the Wolf Administration Acting Insurance Commissioner Jessica Altman reiterated Governor Wolf’s policy that 3D mammograms are covered by insurance under existing state law and must be provided with no cost sharing to Pennsylvania women.On Monday, Governor Wolf released a statement following on the terrorist attack and mass shooting in Las Vegas. The governor ordered the State Capitol be lit blue, gold, and green to stand in solidarity with Nevada and ordered all Commonwealth flags, along with the order for United States flags, to be lowered to half-staff to honor the victims of the attack.Governor Wolf’s Week, October 1 – October 7, 2017Monday, 10/2/17Governor Wolf Statement on Terror Attack in Las VegasWolf Administration Reiterates Policy on 3D Mammograms, Urges Support for Affordable Care Act to Maintain Preventive Service Coverage at No Cost to ConsumersGovernor Wolf Orders Flags at Half-Staff to Honor the Victims of the Las Vegas ShootingTuesday, 10/3/17Governor Wolf Urges Congressional Reauthorization of Children’s Health Insurance ProgramGO-TIME: PA Earns National Technology Honors for Cloud Security from State CIOsWednesday, 10/4/17Filipino American History Month, 2017Governor Wolf Draws Line in the Sand on Budget After Repeated GOP Failure and ObstructionGovernor Tom Wolf and First Lady Frances Wolf Recognize 8 Women as Pennsylvania’s 2017 Distinguished DaughtersThursday, 10/5/17Governor Wolf Announces $5 Million in Funding for NaloxoneFriday, 10/6/17Governor Wolf Receives Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition Pink Ribbon Award for Requiring Insurers to Cover 3D Screening Mammograms at No Extra CostHighlights from The BlogGovernor Wolf Takes Steps to Manage State Funds in Absence of Finalized State Budget (Round-Up)Highlights from TwitterHouse Republicans have repeatedly failed to agree amongst themselves on how to approach the budget.

Submitted by Nancy J. LaPointe for Navigate FinancialNancy J. LaPointeThe credit card commercials promote activities showing families racking up the debt with loved ones and claim that these moments are “priceless”. They do have one thing correct; time with our loved ones is priceless. Debt on the other hand has a tremendous price. Emotionally, and in turn physically, individuals and families are negatively affected by their debt load. At least a few times a month I sit down with someone who feels ashamed, sick, and frustrated — all related to their credit card debt load. Society and individuals are not attuned to seeing credit cards as instruments of debt, what is seen is the entitlement, the instant gratification of card use.Using credit cards as a convenience, is just that, easy. It is easy to use and also easy to abuse. A credit card with a $5,000, $15,000, $40,000, even $500 limit does not mean you have those dollars available, it is not your money. It means the credit card companies are willing to let you go into debt to them for that dollar amount. You get to use their money and in turn you owe them what you borrowed, plus interest. You’re in debt to them and they make it so easy.Credit card use needs to be thoughtful, with intention, and there must be a firm plan to cover that expense. Credit cards should be an item of convenience for you, not a revenue source for the credit card company. Running up debt, whether it be credit card, personal loans, etc, immediately, and over time, hinder your ability to accumulate wealth and to have options in your life.Debt, at select times, can help you leverage other’s money for your needs by increasing your opportunity for additional funds, or if abused, can prevent the loss of revenue producing opportunities. Too often, debt is just a ball and chain that gets heavier over time. There are ways to break the pattern and take control of the situation, but repeating the same activity will not help. Make the decision to not become a revenue source for your credit card companies. Facebook5Tweet0Pin0 Nancy J.
