of those older neighbourhoods in the city, some homeowners are going to have some really tough decisions to make about whether their houses are worth putting that kind of money into, particularly if they can afford building a new house, he said.

going to be a lot of heartache going that forward. last Thursday and it will continue to be in effect until July 4.

state of local emergency gives us a number of powers that are able to help recovery in the municipality, Burrell said.

we give up those powers what it would do is slow down the rate of recovery.

The Act also states that in an emergency a municipality may take whatever actions or measures are necessary to deal with the emergency.

Burrell said being in a state of emergency allows the city to legislation, circumvent bylaws and allows for things that wouldn be done in normal situations.

For example, the powers allow the city to make emergency decisions such as lane reversals, alternate use of roadway, securing materials for rebuilding faster, etc.

For example, if there an urgent need to re enforc michael kors outlet e a fence, city crews go to the Home michael kors outlet Depot and steal their fence and use it to re en michael kors outlet force a fence in trouble without asking, the mayor explained.

michael kors outlet Homers sink Dickey in Jays los

Homers sink Dickey in Jays loss

Dickey was hoping this particular demon was behind him, a thing of the past.

But in a game where the Blue Jays entered with visions of a three game sweep, the old gopher ball came knocking on Dickey door again.

Haunted by the home run in his first season with the Jays he gave up a career high 35 Dickey was hammered for a couple more as the Houston Astros won Thursday series finale, 6 4.

They were the first home runs that Dickey, who was making his third start, has allowed this season, but that will be cold comfort for the knuckleball artist.

A knuckler is a capricious beast at the best of times and, on this night, Dickey had a great one going as far as movement goes.

It was darting and ducking all over the place and, early on, it looked to be a mosquito the Astros couldn swat.

But in the end, they ran into two they could handle a two run homer by Robbie Grossman in the fifth and then the back breaker, a three run blast by Jonathan Villar in the seventh, and that was the difference.

Still, if Dickey could have the same stuff, the same movement, the same control for each of his remaining starts this season, he take it in a heartbeat.

a real surprise when I have a knuckleball like that and have the outcome that we had, Dickey, 1 2 on the season, said. had really good command of it early on and walked a couple of guys there in the third I think (the second, actually) but I wasn going to go anywhere else because it was moving so much. I was throwing it hard. It felt great out of my hand. Then we had a couple of hiccups. It happened quickly.

not like things were michael kors outlet spiralling out of control. It was a double, a walk and then a homer (in the seventh) and the other inning (the fifth) it was another homer that produced all the runs.

got to take what was good about the outing, press forward and keep going. season, the Astros are a lot like the Jays in that they don win games when they don hit home runs and, on this night, they won in that department by a 3 1 margin.

Grossman homer was a bit of a surprise. Surprising in that Grossman is the Astros No. 8 hitter and the count was 3 0. On the season he had two hits in 33 at bats. So what is a guy hitting .061 doing swinging at a 3 0 pitch?

So much for old fashioned baseball.

Given the quality of his bread and butter pitch and the result, it made the results that much harder to swallow.

literally felt like I was going to throw a complete game early on, Dickey said. felt: this is great. I feel great. And some of the pitches they hit were pretty good knuckleballs.

was really disappointing, the outcome. Jays received a solo homer from Colby Rasmus in the fifth, his first of three hits which is a good sign. The Jays added three in the ninth, two on a two out double by pinch hitter Adam Lind.

So after their opening 10 games, they are 5 5 and could have had more. playing well and our pitchers are getting deep into games. Our bullpen should be fresh. We doing a lot of really good things and the hope is that you can put together a streak and put together another little streak.

got guys that are healthy. We got Jose (Reyes) that could be coming back soon. We got all kinds of good things going on. I think our focus is going to be on that. their opening 10 games michael kors outlet , the Jays will move outdoors for the first time this season when they embark on a nine game road trip with stops at Baltimore, Minneapolis and Cleveland.


The fifth inning ended in a bizarre manner for the Jays as third baseman Matt Dominguez clanked a ground ball by Melky Cabrera. The Jays left fielder, however, slipped and fell to the ground coming out of the box.

He recovered and raced to the bag but that allowed Dominguez time to michael kors outlet locate the ball and fire to first. Again it was bang bang and Cabrera was called out.

The Jays challenged the call and lost that one too.


With michael kors outlet his double down the third base line to lead off the first inning, Cabrera extended his hit streak to 10 games.

It is the longest hit streak to start a season since 2007 when Alex Rios hit safely in the opening 11 games. The club record for the longest streak to start a season is held by Vernon Wells who, in 2006, put together a 12 game streak.


Following the double by Cabrera, Maicer Izturis dropped a sacrifice bunt down and he was retired 1 3.

CLEVELAND (AP) Eduardo Escobar usually shows off his power during pregame batting practice.

On Monday night, he did some flexing in the 10th inning.

Escobar homered on Cleveland closer John Axford second pitch of the 10th, giving the Minnesota Twins a 1 0 win over the slumping Indians.

Escobar, who entered as a pinch hitter in the seventh, connected on a 1 0 pitch from Axford (0 3), driving it over the wall in right for his first homer since June 20 and fourth of his career in 344 at bats.

can swing it, we all seen that, said Twins manager Ron Gardenhire. watch him in batting practice, he hits them as far as anybody. It a big moment. It cool. You see the big smile on his face and everyone else. was the second straight gut wrenching loss for Axford, who gave up a three run homer in the ninth to Chicago Dayan Viciedo on Sunday as the White Sox rallied for a 4 3 win. In that game, Cleveland catcher George Kottaras homered twice, becoming the first player in franchise history to homer in his first two plate appearances, and Corey Kluber struck out 13.

pitch, Axford said of his fastball to Escobar that caught too much of the plate. unbelievable. It a shame that my performances have kind of ta michael kors outlet ken precedence over a great hitting performance by George and outstanding pitching performances by Kluber and Zach. Thielbar (2 0) pitched a perfect ninth and Glen Perkins struck out two in the 10th for his eighth save.

Escobar came in for Pedro Floriman and grounded out with two runners on in the seventh. He more than atoned with his game winning shot into the seats.

a great feeling to be able to come up with a big swing in that spot, he said. really happy for the team more than anything else. Indians, who only got two runners to se michael kors outlet cond base, had been the only team in the majors not to play i michael kors outlet n an extra inning game.

Cleveland has dropped eight o michael kors outlet f 10, and scoring is a huge issue. The Indians have scored three runs or less in 19 of their 32 games.

fairly inconsistent right now, manager Terry Francona said. in hitters counts, we not getting real good swings. I think when it team wide, everyone is trying to do much. It a good quality but we got to fight through it together and keep the line moving and we not doing that. teams got strong efforts from their starting pitchers.
