Increasing levels of second home ownership in the Yorkshire Dales have left the national park with a “flight of working-age people, school closures, loss of services and hollowed-out communities”, local politicians and campaigners have said. The Yorkshire Dales national park authority chairman, Carl Lis, said people looking to the area for a picturesque bolthole were stimulating the housing market and helping to create “a gaping affordability gap between house prices and local wages”. Around 1,500 properties in the Yorkshire Dales are second homes – more than 10% of the total housing stock. When Yvonne Peacock’s two sons were little in the late 1970s, their home of Bainbridge, a small village in the national park, was full of children. “There were loads of them. They all used to play out on the village green,” she recalls. “You don’t get that any more.” Peacock, now the leader of Richmondshire district council and a … [Read more...] about How second-homes boom is hollowing out Yorkshire Dales villages

The record books may not show exactly how Algeria won their first Africa Cup of Nations since 1990 and, in any case, it is probably best left to the imagination. Their performances over the past month merit the accolade and that much cannot be denied; the pity was that they dropped any pretensions towards making this final a footballing spectacle after going ahead through Baghdad Bounedjah’s heavily deflected early goal, the result being a tedious encounter that grabbed the attention only during those few episodes when it seemed Senegal might punish their voracious lust for attrition. It all amounted to a colossal riding of their luck but also a personal triumph for Djamel Belmadi, their impressive coach, who took the job only last August but has delivered a continental title where none was expected. He celebrated with his players, who raced towards a delirious 15,000-strong travelling support at full-time, while his childhood friend Aliou Cissé held a lengthy on-pitch … [Read more...] about Algeria claim second Afcon title after Bounedjah’s lucky strike sinks Senegal
The gunman, who died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, sneaked in through a fence and appeared to randomly target people at the conclusion of the Gilroy Garlic event. A gunman cut through a fence to avoid security and opened fire at Northern California's popular Gilroy Garlic Festival, killing three and wounding at least 15 before police fatally shot him as terrified people and performers ran for cover. One witness said he heard the shooter say he was "really angry." Gilroy Police Chief Scot Smithee said the gunman was armed with a rifle and sneaked in through a fence that borders a parking lot next to a creek. He appeared to randomly target people when he opened fire just after 5:30 p.m. Sunday, the conclusion of the three-day festival that attracts more than 100,000 people to the city known as the "Garlic Capital of the World."

While it was initially thought that a policeman fired the fatal shot that killed him, the Santa … [Read more...] about 3 People Dead, 15 Injured in California Festival Shooting
