FRAN’S VALENTINE QUOTES-SUNDAY, MAY 12, 2019

first_imgJOCKEY QUOTESJOE TALAMO, CORDIALITY, WINNER: “When I got back, I was surprised to see those fast fractions. It was a funny set up, the plan going in was to sit second, third or fourth, but when nobody went, we inherited the lead by accident. When the four (runner-up Queen Bee to You) came to her, I got a little concerned. Turning for home, she kicked on and was very impressive, her ears were up and she was doing it pretty easy the whole way, I just sat on her to the top of the lane and she fought really hard.”TRAINER QUOTESTIM YAKTEEN, CORDIALITY, WINNER: “We had a plan for her when we claimed her (Two starts back for $62,500 on Feb. 18), we just didn’t have a prep race, so that’s why we had to run her against those tough mares in her last race, but it worked out well for us. The 46 and two (fifths, for a half mile) didn’t concern me, but when she didn’t kick away at the quarter pole I thought they were going to swamp her. But she showed her heart and her determination, she’s a gritty mare. We are going to enjoy the moment. The Solana Beach Stakes(at Del Mar) would probably be our next target like she did last year.”NOTES: The winning owner is Donnie Crevier who resides in Costa Mesa, CA.last_img read more

DONEGAL CORONER REFUSES INQUEST FOR MISSING MARY BOYLE

first_imgThe acting Donegal coroner has refused a request to hold an inquest into missing Mary Boyle.The family of the six year old, who disappeared in 1977 at Cashelard, Ballyshannon, was hoping an inquest would reignite a Garda inquiry.But Dr Diarmuid Hegarty has contacted Mary’s twin sister Ann to say there was no evidence that the little Donegal girl was dead. It is understood Dr Hegarty took legal advice on Ann’s request but phoned Ann this week to say there would not be an inquest.Not all the Boyle family support the idea of seeking an inquest.Mary’s mother Ann does not want to accept her daughter may be dead and did not want to give the go-ahead for an inquest.The site at Cashelard which Gardai dug up in the search for missing Mary BoyleHowever sister Ann, 42, said she felt an inquest may aid any investigation into Mary’s disappearance. “There has been no sight nor sound of Mary in 36 years since she disappeared.“Nobody believes that she could still be alive. Most likely she is still somewhere on the mountain.“If there is no proof she is alive then an inquest can be held and a new Garda investigation launched, but the coroner told me there is no prospect of an inquest,” said Ann.There was concern among the Boyle family earlier this year when a new search of Cashelard took place.The dig took place in a field using a JCB and up to 14 Gardai.

The plaster casts also contain phosphorous that glows in the darkness of night. Words often used to describe the conceptual art: eerie, chilling, haunting. The hushed “congregation” now attracts thousands of tourists who have donated funds to replace the roof and restore the church to its former glory. To get another idea what the church is like from the inside, check out this spooky video.Over two dozen plaster figures are in the church.The cache owners had driven around the perimeter of the area many times until finally deciding to take a closer look. This inspired them to create a Mystery Cache to align with the mysterious nature of the area and introduce others to the beautiful region of Manětín. Located in the western part of Bohemia in the Czech Republic, Manětín makes you feel as if you’ve travelled 300 years back in time. Known for its exquisite beer, there’s also a Baroque chateau full of sculpture, paintings, and other works of art from the 1700s.The location for this geocache is definitely unusual, but the cache itself? Not so much. No ghosts or ghouls rush out and scare you when opening the container. But what an absolutely beautiful, bizarre, and wondrous place to discover through geocaching! LindencacherThis cache is on my watchlist for more than 3 years. This week Kidsgocaching and me took a trip to Karlovy Vary, Praha, Brno, Vienna and Munich and finally I can visit this cache and the church I’ve been waiting for so long. Petr, the guide, delayed a little bit and so we had time to walk around, take some photos and look for the cache. We found it quite soon – very nice made and suitable. After that we spent a hour in the church and took a lot of very nice photos. For leading us to this impressive location I leave a Favourite Point!Eerie, chilling, haunting.Jasi!!! (translated from German)Together in a group today we went to the Ghost Church. We were able to solve the puzzle and find the can well. Great idea! The area itself is quite spooky. In any case, it was a beautiful trip and I will again come here. Thank you so much for this great cache and eerily beautiful place.A view of the altar and apseHauffis (translated from German)This cache was the real goal of our holiday trip with Elmuerte. Well, actually it was the church we wanted to visit. A really great mystical place that was worth the long journey. For showing this church we leave a fav. there. Of course, we also found the corresponding cache and immortalized in the logbook.What does it all mean?Trackables don’t get spookedHave you found a “Lost Places” geocache? Would you dare enter this church? Difficulty:3Terrain:2 St. George’s Church.Lukova, Czech Republic is an idyllic country village with a population of 700. There you will find an old abandoned church from the 14th century that has seen better days. Local Petr Koukl knows the church well:There’s no question the [St. George’s] church has seen a lot: it suffered several fires, it was allegedly damaged by the Husittes, it was rebuilt several times. The last straw, though, was the collapse of part of the ceiling during a funeral service in 1968 which chased the mourners out. After that the church was closed and not reopened again.last_img read more
