Examples of visitation in a Sentence

  1. Ryan Zinke:

    Growing up near Glacier National Park, I understand the value these places bring to local economies and in preserving our heritage, as we enter into a second century of service and visitation numbers continue to increase, we will focus on maintenance backlogs and ensuring these special places are preserved for future generations.

  2. James Joyce:

    When the Irishman is found outside of Ireland in another environment, he very often becomes a respected man. The economic and intellectual conditions that prevail in his own country do not permit the development of individuality. No one who has any self-respect stays in Ireland, but flees afar as though from a country that has undergone the visitation of an angered Jove.

  3. Hong Kong Disney:

    Lower visitation from mainland China and the region largely contributed to softer overall theme park attendance.

  4. Gilberto Valle:

    Valle gave Mangan full custody of their daughter while he was ensnared in the cannibalism fantasy case. Following his exoneration, he filed court papers in Nevada -- where Mangan now lives -- seeking visitation with his daughter. But Valle decided to drop the case last month after a judge told him he must pay his ex-wife’s attorney fees, the Daily News reported late Sunday. Valle admitted to spending $50,000 so far on the legal battle, and said he couldn’t afford any more. I've been completely cleared but that doesn't mean my life is back to normal, this is going to stick with me for the rest of my life. He added: I argued it's in the child's best interest to have a father. Kathleen argued, 'He might murder my daughter.' I don't think she really thinks that. The newspaper said Mangan and her lawyer are not responding to requests for comment. We have great concern that Ms. Mangan will be forced into a co-parenting relationship with a man who will continue to traumatize her through his very public persona as the 'Cannibal Cop,' her attorney had previously written in court papers. Valle, who now reportedly works in construction, recentlypublished his first book.
