(Photo by Yasmin Goertzen, Contributing Photographer)ExpandOur journey was more than 500 miles and took two days to complete.We started at 5 a.m. on a Tuesday in Northridge and continued the following Sunday, ending in Laguna Beach.I’m a #GirlDad, so I took my daughter. Yasmin, 21, may not share my passion for basketball, but we share a passion for art. We’re both artists.The death of Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna and seven others in a Jan. 26 helicopter crash in Calabasas had a profound effect on not only our family, but we saw firsthand how it affected the Southern California community as we learned of the dozens of murals popping up on building walls throughout the region.

Because of traffic and time, we stayed just a couple minutes at each mural. My daughter navigated with the GPS while I drove.Finding each mural was like a scavenger hunt. The excitement built as we approached each site looking for the sometimes hard-to-spot prize.We were amazed, not only with the talent, creativity and emotion expressed in each mural, but also their sizes. One mural measured roughly 1,200 square feet. To fully appreciate such massive and amazing artwork in such limited time was impossible.But there was a reward. The further we got into our journey, the more we enjoyed the time together to reflect on our relationship and admire the love and bond that Kobe and Gigi had. As Yasmin appreciated, the murals weren’t just about Kobe.“They didn’t just focus on his career and how good he was at playing basketball. They also focused on the relationship he had with his daughter,” she said. “At this age, I sometimes forget how lucky I am to have loving parents and to be surrounded by that.”Each mural told an emotional story. And as a father, the emotions that welled up inside were strong.The legacy that Kobe left for his children, the deep admiration that Gigi had for her father and the passion they shared together for basketball is an inspiration for any father. The murals captured that.“People need to stop and appreciate more who they have around them, because you never know when they can be taken away from you,” Yasmin said.

LOAN TO HELP BUILD DONEGAL WASTE PLANT IS FAR FROM ‘CHICKEN FEED’

first_imgStormont will loan more than €10m for the construction of a digester plant in Ballybofey.The Northern Ireland government is to loan £9.3m towards the cost of a plant in Co Donegal to help deal with waste from Northern Ireland’s poultry industry.The anaerobic digester is being built near Ballybofey and will treat 25,000 tonnes every year.Biogas produced will be sent to Northern Ireland to help heat and power factories owned by manufacturing companies Bombardier and Montupet. The BBC reports today that the Northern Ireland Executive loan covers 40% of the £23m capital cost.The by-product from the process, called digestate, will be spread in forestry and on land near the plant.The agri-food industry said the absence of a long-term solution to the poultry waste problem threatened “the sector’s viability”.About 6,000 people work in the poultry meat sector in Northern Ireland and it is a major contributor to the economy. But finding a solution to the 270,000 tonnes of waste it produces a year has been a headache.Some of it is spread as fertiliser on fields, but it is high in phosphorous and Northern Ireland already has phosphorous-rich soils.The by-product from the process, called digestate, will be spread in forestry and on land near the plant.That means there is a danger that additional land spreading could lead to excess phosphorous running off into rivers or lakes and causing damage.The European Union has rules against that, which Northern Ireland must comply with. That is one of the reasons why the treatment plant is being built in the Republic of Ireland.The soil where the digestate will be spread has lower levels of phosphorous and can cope with the additional nutrients.The plant at Ballybofey already has planning permission and is licensed by the Republic of Ireland’s Environmental Protection Agency.Built by Williams Industrial Services, specialists from Mallusk in County Antrim, it is expected to be operational by March 2017.
