Tivoli look to take pole position

first_img “We have a little break for the Caribbean Football Union Championships, and that is the focus at this point,” he disclosed. Meanwhile, Maverley-Hughenden’s coach Anthony Patrick praised his team for a disciplined approach against the defending champions. “The youngsters dug in and followed the game plan. We just didn’t create enough chances. However, it was important not to lose,” Patrick said. “We have 10 matches to go, so although we are in the relegation zone, it is a work in progress for the team,” he added. MBU moved to 43 points, while Maverley-Hughenden remained in 11th position on 22 points. Today’s games Tivoli Gardens will look to take sole leadership of the Red Stripe Premier League when they face Harbour View in the feature game of the National Stadium double-header, starting at 8 p.m. tonight. In the first game, last placed Boys’ Town will oppose Humble Lion at 5:30 p.m. The games are the start of this season’s Monday Night fixtures presented by the Independence Park Limited (IPL) and the Premier League Clubs Association (PLCA). The grandstand is the only section that will be open to the public with an entry cost of $500 per person. A win for Tivoli Gardens would push the Omar Edwards – coached team on to 45 points, ahead of Montego Bay United (MBU) and UWI FC, which are both locked on 43 points. Meanwhile, in their game yesterday, reigning champions MBU’s winless streak stretched to three games as they were held to a 0-0 draw against struggling Maverley-Hughenden at Constant Spring Complex yesterday. MBU ended the game with 10 players as referee Weston Coscly issued a red card to Allan Ottey in the 70th minute for violent conduct. The MBU team was unlucky not to come away with full points as they hit the post twice and also missed several clear chances. On the other hand, Maverley were clearly content to get anything from the game, frustrating the visitors with their defensively approach. MBU’s coach Dillan Thelwell says he is satisfied with the point on the road, particularly because his team had to play a portion of the second half with 10 players. “Based on the players available, I think a point today is good. We also went down to 10 players, so we have to give thanks for the point,” Thelwell told The Gleaner.

Man held in making booby traps

first_img“I don’t think he means anyone any intentional harm. He felt in fear for himself,” Deputy Public Defender Amy Konstantellos said. “It’s a sad case.” Daniels was sentenced to seven years in prison for a 1998 conviction in a Torrance case for possession of explosives in a public place and possession of destructive device materials, state prison records show. He was discharged from parole in August 2004. In the Torrance case, police stopped his car and found destructive devices, officials said. On April 7, the motel manager heard gunshots, went to check Daniels’ room and saw bullet holes in the door, LaForteza said. “He knocked on the door, and the defendant opened the door and the manager could see numerous wires, TV equipment, things that drew his attention. It looked like he was making a bomb,” LaForteza said. karen.maeshiro@dailynews.com (661) 267-5744 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Daniels told deputies he was making devices to kill people trying to enter his room, according to prosecutors. Officials said Daniels had been living at the Malhi Inn in the 200 block of East Palmdale Boulevard. He had previously resided in the Long Beach area. Daniels has pleaded not guilty to 11 counts, including discharge of a firearm with gross negligence, assembling and maintaining a booby trap device, possession of ingredients to make a destructive device, and felon possessing ammunition. He was being held in lieu of $2 million bail. His defense attorney said he feared for his life and wasn’t trying to hurt anyone. LANCASTER – A Vietnam veteran with a prior conviction for making bombs is facing similar charges after sheriff’s deputies found him holed up in a Palmdale motel room with four booby traps, ammunition, and components to make destructive devices. Bernard Leon Daniels, 55, had how-to books, including “How to Build Your Own Bazooka,” “Do It Yourself Gunpowder Cookbook,” and “Snipers,” and had set up a surveillance camera to monitor the parking lot outside his room, authorities said. Prosecutors said the door of Daniels’ room had four bullet holes, a sign he either tested a device or accidentally set it off, puncturing the door with shotgun pellets that traveled 200 yards out to busy Palmdale Boulevard, where they hit a parked car. “At his arrest, deputies had to contain the whole block and evacuate the whole motel and stop traffic on Palmdale Boulevard,” Deputy District Attorney Bernie LaForteza said. last_img read more

Fort St. John International Air Show this July

first_img“We are right on track for getting everything done, and we are looking forward to this nice warm summer that we’re going to have, and a great air show this year,” said Hamre. “I think we’ve got a great line-up this year. We’ve got a P-51 coming back, it’s such a popular plane that we’ve brought it back, but this time it’s going to do aerobatics.”Super Dave Mathieson is coming back, with his MX2, and John Melby with his Pitts S1-11B will join him in a dual show, which Hamre says will be amazing. Manfred Radius and his hang-glider is coming, as is Brent Handy, an ex-Snowbird pilot who is bringing his Pitts, a different model from Melby’s, to do an aerial display.“We have Stefan Trischuk, who is the youngest guy in the air show industry right now,” said Hamre. “He’s going to be a teaser.”- Advertisement -Air show attendees are also going to be treated to what Hamre called “the coolest ground act”, a lit up Chevy jet truck, which will be doing up to 230 mph on Fort St. John’s runway, and maybe even race somebody.To further light up the night, Hamre said the AV8FX team are lined up to do their pyrotechnics, but if the weather stays hot, they may not be able to perform.Ticket prices will be the same as last year, Hamre said and advance tickets will be on sale soon. Prices are $15 in advance for adults, $20 at the gate; $10 in advance for seniors and students, $15 at the gate; and children under age 10 are free. Also School District 60 will be handing out air show tickets at the schools, so parents are asked to please watch for these.Advertisement For more information on the show, visit www.fsjairshow.comlast_img read more

Tim Sherwood hints at Villa deals for West Brom and Spurs men

first_img1 Joleon Lescott Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood has refused to rule out late moves for Joleon Lescott and Emmanuel Adebayor.The pair have been targets for Sherwood during the summer and the manager remained coy ahead of Tuesday’s transfer deadline.West Brom will allow Lescott to leave once they complete a deal for Jonny Evans, having agreed a fee with Manchester United for the Northern Ireland defender on Friday.Tottenham, meanwhile, are desperate to get Adebayor off their wage bill and the Togo striker held talks with Villa earlier this summer over a move.“It depends how the dominoes go. Never rule it out,” said Sherwood, ahead of Saturday’s Barclays Premier League visit of Sunderland.“Domino effects happen but I wouldn’t like to talk about individual players. Joleon is a player who would be attractive to a lot of teams, just for what he gives you on an experience level.”last_img read more

Senators seeking more details from court nominee

first_imgWASHINGTON – The senators in charge of Harriet Miers’ confirmation are demanding more information from her before hearings begin, with one lawmaker describing the Supreme Court nominee’s answers so far as “incomplete to insulting.” The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Arlen Specter, and the top Democrat, Sen. Patrick Leahy, agreed on Wednesday to begin Miers’ hearings on Nov. 7. Specter, R-Pa., and Leahy, D-Vt., also sent a letter to the White House counsel asking her to more fully answer a questionnaire she submitted Tuesday. The senators also plan to ask the White House to provide information about Miers’ work for President George W. Bush, something the White House has said it will not do. “A number of Republicans have asked for nonprivileged information,” Specter said at a news conference. In her 57-page questionnaire, Miers answered questions about her legal career and background. She addressed issues such as how she would deal with court cases involving the Bush administration, if she were confirmed to succeed retiring Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. The senators said an official request for “nonprivileged” information from the White House would come after they saw Miers’ response to their new questions. The lawmakers want her to explain more about her temporary suspension from the Washington, D.C., Bar for nonpayment of dues and double-check that she submitted all of her litigated work to the committee. “The committee has, for example, identified additional cases not included in your original response,” they said. Miers, in her letter, also disclosed that her Texas law license had been suspended from Sept. 1-26, 1989, for late payment of bar dues. She said it happened because of an “administrative oversight.” Perino said Miers’ Dallas law firm inadvertently had left her and two other lawyers out of the bulk payment it typically made to cover its attorneys’ Bar dues. After the problem was discovered, the firm cut a check on Sept. 14, 1989, the administrative suspension was lifted and no penalties or disciplinary action were imposed as a result, she said. Specter and Leahy also want her to explain how she would handle cases dealing with the Bush administration, which she serves now as White House counsel. In her questionnaire response, Miers said she would comply with the “spirit and letter of the law … the Code of Conduct for United States Judges and other applicable requirements.” Specter and Leahy responded that decisions by a justice to withdraw from cases “are more complicated because they are not subject to further review. The committee would like you to address the issues specific to your situation.” The two committee leaders want the answers from Miers before Oct. 26. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Specter said he and Leahy “took a look at it and agreed that it was insufficient.” Miers, in a letter Wednesday to the committee, said she would “work to provide additional materials to the committee.” A White House spokeswoman, Dana Perino, said that since Miers was nominated, she has told Specter she had “years of files to go through and she would work to finish the questionnaire as soon as possible, but she would likely have to send follow-ups to provide additional information.” last_img read more
