It comes with a raft of features including a lunch room, study halls, animal shelters and horse yards.“This is a rare property with huge upside potential,” Mr Thomas said.“It’s a blank canvas for someone with a unique vision as there is plenty of flat land available to make further improvements and take this property to an entirely new level.”Mystery Mountain was developed by Jan and Garth Keppie, who bought the property in 1999 when it was a humble farm with a small rural residence offering spectacular views of the Coast. Check out those views from the deck. The couple enlisted architect Daryl Brown, of Burling Brown Architects, to design a new farmhouse to accommodate a major farm-stay business.The property comes fully equipped for the farm-stay market with amenities to accommodate up to 50 guests, including a lunch room, living areas, study halls and toilet and shower facilities.The nine-bedroom, 14-bathroom homestead comes with a fully equipped kitchen.“As a going concern, there is nothing of this scale available on the Gold Coast as a farm-stay facility,” Mr Thomas said.

Private Huisentruit Memorial Held To Mark 25 Years Since Disappearance

first_imgA private memorial service was held at KIMT on Saturday afternoon to remember Jodi Huisentruit. The former morning anchor was believed to have been abducted from the parking lot of her apartment complex early on the morning of June 27th 1995. Her body has never been found and the case remains unsolved. Kelly Boyle was a friend of Jodi’s who read a prepared statement from the Huisentruit family. “She frequently made the statement ‘oh I love life’. We often think of that and it gives us strength to move forward. Jodi loved meeting people. She treated everyone with respect regardless of where they were from and she would always take the time to listen and talk with them.” Boyle says the family remains hopeful the case can be solved. “Recently we watched a show that featured the case of a college girl who went missing from a small town in the state of Washington. Her body was found within a few days but the case wasn’t solved for 30 years. The evil man who abducted her lived just down the road from her mother’s house. Two gals from the small town had always been suspicious of him and didn’t get good vibes from him. If only they had pursued their suspicions more aggressively the case could have possibly been solved sooner please. Please don’t let us wait 30 years to solve our case.”) Boyle says you should talk with law enforcement if you believe you have information regarding the case. “If you are suspicious of anyone, please notify law enforcement, the DCI or the FBI. Even if you think your information seems insignificant, it may be the missing piece we are waiting for to help crack the case.”Doug Merbach was the news director at KIMT at the time of Jodi’s disappearance. He says there’s no way in the last 25 years that he thought the case wouldn’t be solved. “We would have thought something would been found out, something we’ve been solved, there would have been justice for Jodi. I think in this day and age we see a lot of people that aren’t getting justice and people that should be held accountable aren’t being held accountable, and some of that started with Jodi 25 years ago. She needs justice. We still have hope. We still have our prayers. We know organizations like are doing so much to keep her story alive and keep her story out there.”Merbach says law enforcement hasn’t forgotten Jodi’s case. “They’re still working. They more than anybody want this to be solved. I talked to Mason City chief of police Jeff Brinkley and they would love to get this solved. If you’re familiar with the case, you know there wasn’t a lot of evidence left at the scene on the day Jodi disappeared, and there wasn’t much to work with, and they’ve been fighting that uphill battle ever since. But we still have hope, we still have our prayers, and maybe someday Jodi can have justice too.”If you possibly have any information regarding Huisentruit’s disappearance, you can call the Mason City Police Department at 641-421-3636.last_img read more

PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNAIROBI, Kenya, Nov 14 – National Under-23 football team, the Emerging Stars, started off their Tokyo 2020 Olympic Qualification on a powerful footing hitting Mauritius 5-0 at the Kasarani Stadium on Wednesday evening.Goals from Johnston Omurwa, James Mazembe, Piston Mutamba, Sidney Lokale and skipper Joseph Okumu ensured Kenya put one foot into the second round of qualification ahead of the second leg of the tie to be played on November 18. Interestingly, four of the five goals were scored from headers.Kenya were clearly the top side in the evening encounter with the visitors not managing even a single shot at goal.Stars had a bright start and broke the deadlock after 13 minutes, Mathare United Omurwa thumping home a header from the edge of the six yard box after rising to meet a Yusuf Mainge corner from the left.Prior to that, Stars had good chances to break the deadlock, Ovellah Ochieng gaining some good ground on the left channel but his eventual crosses were not dangerous enough, all cut out.-Mutamba missIn the 19th minute, skipper of the day Joseph ‘Crouch’ Okumu made an adventurous run on the left from his central defensive position, lifting his head to cite Piston Mutamba in the box but the eventual cross was cut out.Mainge, assist provider for the opening goal tried to also get his name on the score-sheet in the 21st minute but his shot from distance went straight into the keeper’s arms.In the 25th minute, Stars had another shot on target when Mazembe’s cross from the right found Ochieng isolated at the backpost but his attempted volley was cut out for a corner by the keeper.Harambee Stars U23 winger Ovella Ochieng tries to go past a Mauritius opponent during their Olympic 2020 Qualifier on November 14, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluMauritius had their first sniff at goal in the 28th minute but instead of it ending up in their first shot on target it turned out to be the catalyst for conceding a second goal.-Counter attackSkipper Adel Langue’s shot from distance was deflected for a corner and from the resultant set-piece, it was disaster for his side. Ochieng picked up the long corner on the right, took on a daunting run before feeding Teddy Osok who swung in a well weighted cross that Mazembe nodded home.Stars kept the pressure, pinning Mauritius in their half and forcing them to defend nervously.Five minutes after going two up, the home side nearly made it three but Ibrahim Shambi’s shot from inside the box was deflected for a corner after being set up nicely by Mutamba.Some fancy step-overs from Ochieng at the edge of the box drifting in from the left saw him get some space, but his eventual shot went inches over the bar.At the stroke of halftime, the impressive Shambi should have made it three for Kenya when Mainge’s cross from the right found him unmarked, but he couldn’t put some weight on his header, the ball ending up an easy catch for the keeper.-Two quick goalsThe heavens opened in the second half with Mutamba nodding home the third just seven minutes after the restart, rising unchallenged inside the six yard box to connect to an Ovellah Ochieng cross.Four minutes later, substitute Sidney Lokale scored perhaps the easiest goal he would ever have, tapping home inside the box after the Mauritius keeper spilled Mainge’s shot right at his path.Head coach Francis Kimanzi made a double change bringing on England based Henry Ochieng and Jaffery Owito for Ovella and Mutamba.Stars continued dominating and Lokale missed a glorious opportunity in the 69th minute when Owiti’s pin-point cross from the right found him unmarked inside the box, but his tap went wide with only the keeper to beat.-Okumu goalBut two minutes later, skipper Okumu ensured Kenya pulled the game to safer distance nodding home at the back post after Mainge’s cross on his weaker left foot found him in a favorable position.Mauritius had a chance to draw back a level late on but skipper Langue’s shot came off the bar with keeper Brian Bwire well beaten.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
