To join him for the new band, Robinson recruited former Black Crowes members including guitarist/vocalist Marc Ford and bassist Sven Pipien in addition to Rich Robinson Band member Joe Magistro and lead vocalist, John Hogg. Next Friday, August 10th, The Magpie Salute will release their first studio album, High Water I, via Eagle Rock Entertainment (U.S.), Mascot Label Group (Europe/Australia/New Zealand) and Sony (Japan).

This marks the third pre-release High Water I single shared by the band, following the releases of “Send Me An Omen” and “For The Wind”.“John and Marc wrote Sister Moon,” remarks Rich Robinson in a press release. “Marc had originally written it on acoustic, but John took the chords and played them on the piano. It’s one of my favorite songs on the record.” You can listen to The Magpie Salute’s newest single, “Sister Moon”, below.The Magpie Salute – “Sister Moon”[Video: The Magpie Salute]Rich Robinson, Marc Ford, and John Hogg will celebrate the release with a string of special acoustic shows in Europe beginning this Sunday in Oslo, Norway and concluding with a sold-out London show on August 10th.

The vacant block of land at 49 Hedges Ave, Mermaid Beach, has sold for more than $4 million.A BARE block of land will go down in history as one of the most expensive on Mermaid Beach’s Millionaires’ Row after changing hands for more than $4 million.A local buyer already living in the suburb snapped up the slim 405sq m block at 49 Hedges Ave, which was one of the few remaining vacant sites on the strip.Marketing agent Tony Velissariou of Tony V said the buyers had plans to build on the site.“They’re planning to build their family home there,” he said.“I believe that Hedges Ave is becoming quite strong in the market place now and holding it’s own.

MORE NEWS: Age no barrier for woman who built her waterfront home MORE NEWS: Australia’s sexiest pool hits market The double block has a lot of history, dating back to when it was originally home to the “Elephant House”, which was knocked down by property investor John Pilkington in 2012 after he bought it for $9.5 million from former AFL footballer Rod Galt.Milk magnate Ken Lacey, entertainment entrepreneur Michael Edgley, singer Diana Ross and Gold Coast bookie Terry Page also have links to the property. The block and its vacant neighbour have a lot of history.Veteran property developer John Potter bought it and its neighbour at No. 47 as a pair in 2016.He splashed $7.7 million on the double block and had plans to build a multi-level apartment building.However, in 2017 he changed his plans and decided to sell the blocks separately.The property next door sold for $4.6 million in late 2017 to Highgrove Bathrooms founder Lindsay Sinclair, who had plans for a tri-level mansion, but it remains vacant.After selling his home at number 9-11 Hedges Ave to Clive Palmer for $12 million last year, Mr Potter decided to keep the block at No. 49, but then reneged on his plans after snapping up an old shack on the street.
– NDC launches investigationResidents of Atlantic Gardens are peeved at what appears to be the unlawful establishment of a ‘junkyard’ at Lot 169 Azalea Avenue, Atlantic Gardens, East Coast Demerara.Guyana Times recently visited the location and saw what appeared to be several dilapidated heavy-duty trucks parked on the Government reserve precariously close to the main roadway and old rotted truck cabins, trays, chassis and other vehicular parts on the once lush green plot.Parked trucks in Atlantic GardensParts of dismantled trucksOne visibly upset resident explained that he managed to get the Overseer of the La Bonne Intention/Better Hope Neighbourhood Democratic Council (NDC), Shevonne Savory, to visit the site and inspect the operations.He related that the Overseer confirmed that what was occurring was illegal and the NDC would take steps to have the operations removed.More than a month later, the situation has gotten worse.Residents are peeved at the eyesore the business has become, the apparent loss of affluence and value in their properties, as some even questioned whether Atlantic Gardens was still a residential area.Other residents took the opportunity to lambaste the NDC for not fulfilling its mandate of collecting garbage, weeding the drains and for turning a blind eye to littering in addition to condoning this disgrace.Upon enquiry, one resident mentioned that the owner of the property upon which the operations was established was only known as “Fat Man” and he owned a spare parts dealership situated opposite Apex School on the Public Road.Residents are claiming that the ‘junkyard’ would become a haven for thieves and animals, had the potential to be a public health hazard by adding to already unsanitary conditions, while polluting the environment with rubbish, which was already evident on the southern parapet, as well as obstruct traffic and pose a fire hazard through the use of welding torches to cut the metal.The daily traversing of heavy-duty vehicles was seen as bringing further destruction to the already severely potholed roads and damaged parapets.Damage to the parapets was clearly visible when Guyana Times visited, as heavy machinery was rolling upon the reserves to manipulate their overweight and over-sized cargo into position.InvestigationsThe Overseer who initially visited the site and suspected the operations to be illegal has resigned from her post with the NDC.NDC Chairman Zamin Shaw, when contacted, explained that an investigation was ongoing into the matter and assured residents that all steps were being taken to address the issue.Shaw said the NDC was unable to ascertain the owner of the property; however, a notice to clear the roadways was dispatched to a caretaker who often visited the property.Currently, the NDC is awaiting a response.Moreover, the Chairman said he was in the process of seeking advice from technical personnel on how to proceed with the matter, since not much substantial information has been gathered on the operations.
The agent of Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli claims his client is not yet thinking about making his move to AC Milan permanent.The Italian moved to the San Siro on a season-long loan in the summer after struggling during his first year at Anfield.Since returning to Italy the 25-year-old has been rejuvenated and he scored a stunning free-kick during Milan’s 3-2 win over Udinese on Tuesday.It has led to claims Balotelli may make his loan move permanent but his agent, Mino Raiola, says they will not discuss that until the transfer window reopens.“For me, in addition to the goal, the important thing is that today in Italy they are discovering how many punches and knocks the player must put up with and stay quiet,” Raiola told Italian news agency Adnkronos.“For me the behaviour and attitude are important, and this is the most positive thing. Then the goal – if you have the class that Mario has, many more will come. The important thing is his attitude.“Will Balo stay at Milan? The transfer market isn’t open now, so that’s not a concern.” Mario Balotelli 1
FINE GAEL councillor Terence Slowey has lost his appeal after being dismissed from the party over an alleged expenses scandal.The Ardara county councillor was booted out of the party on May 4th after a disciplinary hearing which heard how he claimed double expenses for two conventions in Cork and Kerry on the same day.Cllr Slowey claimed it was an honest oversight and that he immediately refunded more than €1,000 he received in expenses for travelling to the second convention. At the time Cllr Slowey refused to stand down from the party or his council position.He also said he had paid the price for the mistake as he had planned to stand in the last general election but could not do so because of the controversy.A meeting of Donegal County Council failed to ask for Cllr Slowey’s removal from the local authority despite calls from Sinn Fein for him to be expelled.However in a statement his own party’s disciplinary committee said Cllr Slowey had breached party guidelines. They said they had no option but to expel him from the party after he “acted in a manner detrimental to the interests of the party.”Cllr Slowey appeared before an Appeals Committee of the party last Saturday where he stated his case and his claim to b allowed back into the organisation.However Donegaldaily learned last night that Cllr Slowey had failed to have the decision reversed.A party source told us “The decision has been taken and that’s it. The appeal was heard but it was decided that to take him back would be detrimental to the party.“This is a new era in politics and we have to be seen to do the right thing. He may claim that it was an innocent mistake but the public may have had a different view.” EndsCLLR SLOWEY LOSES HIS APPEAL AGAINST HIS EXPULSION FROM FINE GAEL was last modified: May 17th, 2011 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:Cllr SloweyexpelledFine Gael
