Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan

Meadow Lake is a city in the boreal forest of northwestern Saskatchewan, Canada. Its location is about 246 kilometres (153 mi) northeast of Lloydminster and 156 kilometres (97 mi) north of North Battleford. On November 9, 2009, it officially became Saskatchewan’s 14th city.

Meadow Lake is the main business centre of northwestern Saskatchewan and serves the many towns and villages as a regional shopping centre. It is the second-largest community in Saskatchewan’s Census Division No. 17, after Saskatchewan’s portion of the interprovincial city of Lloydminster. The city borders the Rural Municipality of Meadow Lake No. 588 and the Flying Dust First Nation No. 105 reserves.

Peter Fidler built Bolsover House in 1799 near „Lac des Prairies“, the first name given to Meadow Lake. In 1873 Metis families arrived establishing a Hudson’s Bay Company trading post, joined by other settlers in the early 1900s. The largest impetus occurred following a fire of 1919 and the exodus of some of the settlers during the Great Depression from the Dust Bowl of central and southern Saskatchewan to communities in the north.

For fur trade in the area see Beaver River (Canada). Peter Fidler of the Hudson’s Bay Company was told by Indian guides that Meadow Lake was a good place for furs. On August 30, 1799 he reached the mouth of the Meadow Lake River. The stream was so narrow and crooked that he almost despaired of navigating it. When he reached the Lake he found it so shallow and swampy that he had to proceed demi-chargé. Finding no good place on the lake he went up a river and selected a place about 1000 yards inland. He named it Bolsover House after his home town in England. The post returned only 190 made beaver in the first season so in 1801 it was closed and everything moved east to Green Lake House. The exact site of Bolsover House is unknown. There is a monument to Peter Fidler in Meadow Lake.

The Meadow Lake Indian Band was established in 1889 with signing of Treaty 6 to the north of Meadow Lake. This reserve is now named the Flying Dust First Nation.

The 1955 population was established as 1,978 by the Saskatchewan Business Directory and as 2,453 in the 1955 Golden Jubilee edition of Saskatchewan Business Directory. 2,216 given in the table is the average of these two population counts.

On November 9, 2009, it officially became Saskatchewan’s 14th city. The population is a matter of uncertainty. The 2001 census showed only a population of 4,582 persons living on 7.64 km2 (2.95 sq mi) of land – Saskatchewan generally requires a sustained population over 5,000 to qualify for city status – however, the city’s Community Profile indicates that an unofficial re-count by Statistics Canada in 2004 showed a population of 5,021. However, the 2006 census figure shows 4,771, while population figures cited in the Community Report and based upon information from Saskatchewan Health claim a 2005 population of 6648. By comparison, Melville, Saskatchewan still retains its city charter despite a population drop to between 4,200 and 4,300.

Meadow Lake is located in the middle of an area pre-historically covered by a large glacial lake also called Meadow Lake (Saskatchewan) formed from a receding continental glacier, of which only a fraction still exists. The lake is located on the east side of the city. The ancient lakeshore forms the Meadow Lake Escarpment, a significant terrain feature clearly visible looking south from many points in the city.

The area is a part of the Southern Boreal EcoRegion with the Northern Boreal EcoRegion to the north and the Parkland EcoRegion on the south. The neighbouring rural areas include Trembling aspen Populus tremuloides, White spruce Picea glauca, Jack Pine Pinus banksiana, Black Spruce Picea mariana and muskegs

Specifically Meadow Lake is situated in the Meadow Lake plain of the Boreal transition ecoregion in the Boreal Plain ecozone.

Meadow Lake experiences a subarctic climate (Köppen climate classification Dfc) that falls just short of being classified as a Humid continental climate (Köppen Dfb). The highest temperature ever recorded in Meadow Lake was 38.0 °C (100.4 °F) on 27 June 2002. The coldest temperature ever recorded was −51.7 °C (−61 °F) on 8 January 1930. A record snowfall occurred November 16, 1984, with 19

Meadow Lake was processing three million bushels of grain in 1953, the highest amount for a single Canadian community.

Currently the city’s heavy industry is dominated by the primary forestry industry and related service companies, including trucking and forestry management companies. The forest companies include NorSask Forest Products Inc., Meadow Lake Mechanical Pulp Ltd. and the Meadow Lake OSB Limited Partnership.

Meadow Lake acts as a business hub in its local area, providing services for the smaller surrounding communities of Dorintosh and Rapid View and surrounding reserves including the Flying Dust First Nation and the Eagles Lake reserve.

A major component of the Meadow Lake economy is the First Nation communities and their relative success. The Flying Dust First Nation, which directly borders the town, owns and operates many of the city’s most profitable industries, including direct ownership of NorSask Forest Products Inc., a portion of the Meadow Lake OSB Partnership, stakes in local trucking and service companies, and a sizeable farming operation which is currently limited to leasing the vast amounts of local property they own or have title on.

The community’s agricultural community is also sizeable, including both cereal production and ranching operations. The most pristine agricultural lands are closest to the city, whereas the surrounding areas become less suitable for farming and more amenable to ranching towards the north with the Canadian Shield, or east to the St. Cyr Hills. The city boasts one stockyard and two major agricultural equipment dealers.

The community is home to the SaskPower Meadow Lake Power Station.

The community is 40 km southeast of Meadow Lake Provincial Park.

Grand Park

Grand Park is a 12-acre (4.9 ha) park located in the civic center of Los Angeles, California. It is part of the larger Grand Avenue Project, with its first phase having opened in July 2012. Grand Park is part of a joint venture by the city of Los Angeles and Los Angeles County. It was designed and built by the Los-Angeles-based multidisciplinary design firm Rios Clementi Hale Studios. Park programming and entertainment, security and upkeep is maintained by the nearby Los Angeles Music Center.

Grand Park stretches between the Los Angeles City Hall and the Los Angeles Music Center on Grand Avenue. It is designed to be pedestrian friendly and connects Bunker Hill to the civic center

. The park plans include tree-shaded sidewalks, drought-tolerant plants, an interactive fountain plaza, performance lawns and courtyards, plenty of street lights, movable park furniture, and kiosks to encourage the walking and exploration of the area. City officials and some visitors have compared Grand Park to other well-established urban parks such as New York’s Central Park or San Francisco’s Union Square.

Prior to the creation of Grand Park, the area was already a public space with plazas, fountains and a Court of Flags.

By virtue of the mostly sunny weather, the park also features programs year-round. In 2012, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors allocated $3.3 million for the first year’s operations, mainly to cover logistics such as security and maintenance, with $100,000 for programming. Events will be coordinated by the Performing Arts Center of Los Angeles County, which also oversees the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Ahmanson Theatre, Mark Taper Forum and the Walt Disney Concert Hall. The inaugural event featured Bandaloop, a professed vertical dance company of aerialists, performing against the backdrop of Los Angeles City Hall. During the first six months, Grand Park hosted about 40 events. Some were bids for a mass audience, while others aimed to grab passers-by.

The Community Terrace features a large picnic table and lawn area for gatherings and viewing visuals projected on nearby wall of the Hall of Records. Open lawn space can be used for major public events such as New Year’s Eve celebrations and festivals.

Direct access to the park is available on the Los Angeles Metro Red Line and Purple Line at the Civic Center station. The park is also accessible via the Silver Line’s 1st Street/Hill Street stop or its Spring Street/City Hall stop. Several local, rapid and express Metro bus routes also share the same 1st Street/Hill Street stop at the civic center.

Construction on Grand Park began in 2010 and carries a price tag of $56 million. The park was paid for by $50 million from Related Companies, the developer planning the nearby building projects as part of the Grand Avenue Project. The park was supposed to be part of a later phase of a $775-million Frank Gehry-designed mixed-use development. But that changed when the Great Recession struck, undermining the condominium sales market that was a bedrock of the overall plan. Other phases of the project remained stalled amid the recession, but the park moved forward thanks to a special agreement between the joint powers authority overseeing the project and its developer.

The Los Angeles Music Center’s contract to operate Grand Park is expected to run until mid-2017; in addition, it earns in rents and fees charged to concessionaires and others. Routine security is provided by the Music Center’s security department

, and law enforcement services by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. In 2014, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved funding of $1 million for an independent nonprofit group, the Grand Park Foundation.

On December 31, 2013-January 1, 2014, „N.Y.E. LA“, Los Angeles‘ first major public New Year’s Eve celebration was held in the park. The event, which included food trucks, art installations, and various color and light shows, among other things, drew an estimated 25,000 spectators. At 11:59 p.m., a massive light projection onto the side of Los Angeles City Hall began, displaying various dramatic visual art before ultimately counting down to midnight with the crowd. It was intended to become an annual celebration, with the hope that it would rival other major cities‘ festivities in years to come (notably the ball drop in New York City’s Times Square)

Martinsyde

Martinsyde was a British aircraft and motorcycle manufacturer between 1908 and 1922, when they were forced into liquidation by a factory fire.

The company was first formed in 1908 as a partnership between H.P. Martin and George Handasyde and known as Martin & Handasyde. Their No.1 monoplane was built in 1908–1909 and succeeded in lifting off the ground before being wrecked in a gale. They went on to build a succession of largely monoplane designs although it was a biplane, the S.1 of 1914, that turned Martin-Handasyde into a successful aircraft manufacturer.

In 1915 they renamed the company Martinsyde Ltd and became Britain’s third largest aircraft manufacturer during World War One, with flight sheds at Brooklands and a large factory in nearby Woking.

Martinsyde began manufacturing motorcycles from 1919 after buying the rights to engine designs by Howard Newman which included a 350 cc single and a 677 cc V-twin with an unusual exhaust-over-inlet layout.

The 680 engine was fitted into a diamond-type frame with Brampton forks. Martinsyde had to overcome problems with components before their new range could be launched, initially under the trade name of Martinsyde-Newman until the third partner Newman left the company. Newman was also involved in manufacturing and designing the Ivy (motorcycles). The motorcycle twin had a hand gear change and a three-speed gearbox built under licence from AJS. The Martinsyde’s engine was very flexible and became popular for off-road trials competition, where the singles quickly gained a reputation for reliability, at Brooklands, where Martinsyde won the team award in 1922

, and the Scottish Six Days Trial.

Martinsyde motorcycles were offered with sidecars and the Martinsyde 680 was followed by a 500 cc model in 1920, with a sports version in 1921. In 1922 Martinsyde produced a 738 cc sports V-twin, named the Quick Six which produced 22 horsepower (16 kW) and was capable of 80 miles per hour (130 km/h). The engine featured their normal overhead exhaust and side-valve inlet, but Ricardo pistons

. Martinsyde were experimenting with new designs, including valve gear controlled by leaf springs, when their Woking factory was destroyed by a fire in 1922, forcing them into liquidation having produced over 2,000 motorcycles. The company’s motorcycle manufacturing rights were purchased by Bat Motor Manufacturing Co. Ltd, who produced a number of twin-cylinder motorcycles in 1924 and 1925 before ending production.

Martinsyde-designed aircraft included:

A number of surplus Buzzard airframe were later built up with a new engine, the radial Armstrong Siddeley Jaguar, by the Aircraft Disposal Company (ADC) and sold as the „Martinsyde ADC.1“ in 1924. A development of the F.4 was also made by the ADC: two „ADC Nimbus“ were produced as prototypes. The company also manufactured the BE.2c and S.E.5a aircraft under sub-contract.

Pleito de los Regidores perpetuos

El pleito de los Regidores perpetuos es un hecho histórico ocurrido en la isla de La Palma (Canarias, España), entre febrero de 1768 y diciembre de 1771, por el cual el gobierno municipal de su capital, Santa Cruz de La Palma, fue el primer ayuntamiento democrático de España en ser elegido por sufragio popular (1773) frente al sistema oligárquico de los regidores perpetuos que habían gobernado hasta ese momento.

El origen del pleito fue el real auto promulgado en 1766 por el rey Carlos III de España, por el cual los vecinos de los ayuntamientos que superasen los dos mil vecinos podían desempeñar temporalmente dos cargos, conocidos por Diputado del Común y Síndico Personero del Común. Estos cargos

, sin derecho a voto, tenían como función la defensa de los vecinos y la vigilancia de la buena administración.

La causa fue promovida por el comerciante Dionisio O´Daly, elegido síndico personero en 1767 y revocado, por el Consejo Capitular de los citados Regidores, al ser extranjero de nacimiento, y por el abogado de la misma isla, Anselmo Pérez de Brito, que llevó adelante el proceso, al presentarlo en el Consejo de Castilla (1768) donde acusaban a los regidores de malversación de caudales públicos y otros desmanes. El 3 de diciembre 1771, el Real Consejo acordó que se „aboliera el gobierno de los Regidores perpetuos, destituyéndolos, y disponer que en lo sucesivo fuera elegidos con carácter bienal, por sufragio“.

Fue el 2 de enero de 1773 cuando los regidores cesaron de sus cargos. „El día anterior, se reunieron los vecinos para designar los 24 electores que habían de elegir a los regidores bienales“ (un propietario

, un administrador de Aduanas, un médico, un abogado y un comerciante para Síndico Personero). „Los depuestos regidores vitalicios y sus descendientes siguieron luchando por el apego de sus anteriores cargos pero ninguno pudo volver a obtener título alguno de regidor perpetuo“

Sobre el término central por el que es conocido popularmente este hecho histórico, Primer ayuntamiento democrático de España, el profesor de la ULL, Adolfo Arbelo García, aclara que ese término democrático era inexistente en el siglo XVIII, por lo que sería incorrecto hablar de primer gobierno municipal democrático de España, sino que se trata de un proceso de elección „único y singular“ que, sin embargo, no tiene nada que ver con lo que conocemos por democracia a día de hoy .
