NBA: Anthony reportedly keen to stay with floundering Knicks

first_imgBen&Ben, IV of Spades, SB19 win big at 5th Wish Music Awards “I don’t think I have to speak on that,” he told ESPN.com. “I think I’ve proven that over the years, day in and day out.”Anthony’s comments came after the Knicks dropped a heartbreaker at Madison Square Garden, falling 108-107 to the Atlanta Hawks. It was the Knicks’ 11th defeat in their last 13 games.Hornacek, who shook up his starting lineup to include rookies Ron Baker and Mindaugas Kuzminskas, said Tuesday he’d look at more changes as he searches for a winning formula.He said Anthony, who has started at power forward for the past three games as Kristaps Porzingis battles a sore Achilles tendon, could stay there when Porzingis returns, with the Lithuanian starting at center and France’s Joakim Noah coming off the bench.“We’ve got to look at everything,” Hornacek said. “In the long run, we’ve got to look at hey, when KP comes back, will it change everything altogether and what it will do?ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ “Sometimes it’s a chance you have to take, but we continue to look over that.

One injured over Court Re-Possession Order

first_imgOne person was serious injured and the windshield of a vehicle was badly damaged last Friday during the execution of court order.One of the parties had gone to take possession of a building situated on Ashmun Street in Monrovia due to a court order.The structure is believed to be a portion of the Intestate Estate of the Late John W. Taylor that is being managed by one William A. Cisco, who is serving as its administrator.Magistrate Nelson Chineh, then Stipendiary Magistrate of the Monrovia City Court in 2009, heard the matter of the fake administrator title between William Cisco and one Koko Mayors, known as “Koko Cisco,’ where the magistrate established that the original administrator was William Cisco.His decision came after Koko was arrested and charged with theft of property and forgery by the Liberia National Police (LNP) in February 2010.It was however based on the 2009 decision of the court that the Cisco family last Friday decided to take possession of the building on Ashmun Street when the scuffle broke out.Speaking to the Daily Observer yesterday, Charles Cassell, one of the children, alleged that before he was attacked, he took two carpenters to the area to take off the roof of the building based on the court’s 2009 decision.According to Cassell, when they got to the location of the building, he met a group of men believed to have been hired by Koko Mayors, who reportedly prevented them from entering the compound.When he would not comply, Cassell said the other men allegedly jumped on him, started to beat him and broke the windshield of his father’s vehicle. Thereafter, he ran to safety at the Slipway Police Station.He further alleged that Koko’s men ran behind him until they all entered the station.“What shocked me was that the police detained me after Koko went to the station, ignoring my earlier complaint. I don’t know what is happening that if a man takes his complaint to police and without any investigation, the police detained him,” he said.He said it was based on his father’s lawyer’s intervention that he was released from detention.“We are afraid and we don’t know where to go for help, so we are calling on the government to intervene to allow us to get our legitimate properties,” he appealed. Prior to the incident, the Magistrate’s decision for Cassell to reclaim the property was made after the court withdrew the ‘power of attorney’ from Koko Cisco and he was charged by the LNP for theft of property and forgery.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Tottenham boss hails squad ‘character and personality’

first_imgTottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino praised his side’s “character and personality” after Harry Kane’s late equaliser rescued a 2-2 draw with West ham at White Hart Lane.The 21-year-old striker won a contentious penalty late on in the match, which led to Spurs’ equaliser, and Pochettino claimed that both teams have to accept the referee’s decision.“We’ve shown in a lot of games that we always believe and try to get the good result,” said Pochettino. “Today it is very important to say the team showed character and personality because it was difficult. With ten minutes to go at 2-0 down, the team showed character.“From my position it is difficult to give the right opinion, but we have to accept the referee’s decision.“It is not easy in the last moment, Harry is young and he has a very good potential but as always I am happy with his performance. He showed good personality to score and this is the most important thing.”With a hectic schedule of domestic and European football imminent for spurs, the former Southampton boss revealed his squad management will be critical.Tottenham face Fiorentina in the Europa League last-32 on Thursday before a wembley date with Chelsea in the League Cup final on Sunday.He added: “Now we need to be focused on the next game. They are all finals that we play that are going to play in a very tough period. It is important how we manage the squad.”last_img read more

Upcoming games

first_imgSAUGUS (0-0) VS. ANTELOPE VALLEY (0-0) OF LANCASTER AT COC, 7:30 p.m. KEEP AN EYE ON: Kyle Monson, Saugus, DB – Monson’s job will be to make sure Antelope Valley doesn’t break long TDs, a difficult undertaking considering the Antelopes’ skill-position quickness. “We’re very concerned about AV’s speed,” Saugus coach Jason Bornn said. OUTLOOK: This should prove an interesting opener, especially for Saugus because there are a lot of question marks, as the Centurions feature new faces at most skill positions, including QB and RB. QB Nick Gauthier is under scrutiny after a sub par summer during which Saugus lost nearly every passing-league game. However, the Centurions are expecting a major boost from sophomore RB Ryan Zirbel, who’s considered the program’s brightest young prospect since Bornn took over four years ago. The strength of the team should be the OL, led by three-year starters Ramsen Golpashin and Shane Watterson, so if the group can help Saugus establish the run, the pressure will be off Gauthier, and that’s a game plan that probably makes the most sense. Injuries could be a problem for Saugus. WR/DB Ryan Gagliano (knee) is out, and WR/DB/PK Kyle Ernsberger (broken nose) will be limited to kicking duties after a weekend snowboarding accident. “When I found out Kyle got hurt while snowboarding, all I could say was, Are you kidding me?’” Bornn said. Saugus depends heavily on LBs Ryan and Justin McKillop, two of the league’s top defensive players. Defending Div. III quarterfinalist Antelope Valley (9-3 in 2005) must feel like there’s no place like home, as the Antelopes begin a six-game road stretch. Nearly every top skill player from last year’s team has graduated, though this year’s group includes six players who weigh 230 pounds or more. Antelope Valley, which has advanced to the section quarterfinals or better four times over the past five years, hasn’t faced a Foothill League opponent since a 2001 playoff loss to Hart. NOTRE DAME (0-0) OF SHERMAN OAKS AT CANYON (1-0), 7 p.m. KEEP AN EYE ON: Ben Armbruster, DL, Canyon – Canyon top’s returning pass rusher (10 sacks in 2005) needs to put pressure on QB Dayne Crist, who’s expected to make an immediate impact in place of former standout Garrett Green, now at USC. OUTLOOK: This should be quite a showdown, as two of California’s most storied programs go head-to-head. Since 2001, defending Div. II champion Canyon is 64-7 and Notre Dame is 63-4, including three consecutive Div. III titles from 2002-2004. Canyon, which has the advantage of a week-zero game under its belt, features J.J. DiLuigi, who has picked up right where he left off after rushing for 1,861 yards with a league-record 43 TDs as a junior. The BYU-bound RB rushed for 143 yards with three receptions and a TD in an opening 33-14 victory over Moorpark last week. DiLuigi benefits from a veteran OL, led by returning starters Nick Peterson, A.J. Wallerstein, Nick Madia and Marc Valdez. Defensively, Canyon’s top players include Armbruster, LBs Nic Jurado, Blake McMartin, Michael Loucks and Mike Spagnola and DBs Chris Kingsbury and Anthony King. Like Canyon, Notre Dame prefers to establish the run. Blazing fast RB Rodney Glass, a three-year standout, has graduated, but Thaddeus Brown should prove a capable replacement. Brown rushed for 276 yards and three TDs as a backup last season. WR Shane Horton (32 receptions, four TDs) is also back, along with key blocker Sam DeMartinis, who bolsters an impressive OL. Notre Dame’s other key players are WRs Mike Stanton and Ben Bruneau, DLs Wes Horton and Aaron Thomas, LB Anthony McDonald and DB Kevin Jusko. HART (0-1) AT MOORPARK (0-1), 7 p.m. KEEP AN EYE ON: Alex Pettee, QB, Hart – After a difficult debut in a 34-0 loss to St. Bonaventure, Pettee needs to prove himself. The senior completed 11 of 32 passes for 109 yards, no TDs and an INT – an average of just 3.4 yards per attempt. Part of the problem was blocking and poor communication with his WRs, but the onus is almost always on the QB in Hart’s four-wide passing offense, so Pettee must take the blame for a shutout loss. OUTLOOK: Such a poor opening performance wasn’t good news for a proud program that has won eight section titles, including five over the past eight seasons, but perhaps there isn’t much call for alarm because through the years Hart has started slowly during some of its best seasons. Plus, you’ve got to put things in perspective because defending Div. IV champion St. Bonaventure has won 95 of its past 99 games. That said, Hart, which committed seven turnovers last week, must execute much better, or the Indians will find themselves 0-2 because defending Div. IV finalist Moorpark is no easy mark. The Musketeers, favored to win the Marmonte League, feature one of Southern California’s top RBs in junior Darrell Scott (1,900 yards as sophomore), who rushed for 153 yards and a TD in a 33-14 loss to Canyon last week. Expect Hart’s Patrick Larimore, a dominant LB, to key on Scott. The touted 6-foot-3, 235-pound junior totaled 18 tackles against St. Bonaventure – the most productive debut for a Hart defensive player in coach Mike Herrington’s 18-year career. Hart’s other key player is RB Delano Howell, who rushed for 125 yards, caught five passes and averaged 31 yards on three kick returns last week. BISHOP AMAT (1-0) OF LA PUENTE AT VALENCIA (0-1), 7 p.m. KEEP AN EYE ON: Virgil Hill, WR, Valencia – Hill, Valencia’s leading returning receiver, is a breakaway threat who will look to keep Bishop Amat’s defense from focusing too heavily on Valencia’s star RB, Shane Vereen, who came through with a huge performance when the teams met last year. Hill, coming off spring knee surgery, caught eight passes in a 46-35 opening loss to Centennial of Corona after sitting out summer workouts while recuperating. “Virgil still has a ways to go,” coach Larry Muir said. OUTLOOK: After blowing a fourth-quarter lead last week, Valencia must shore up its defense, particularly the DL, which was missing returning starters Matt Diaz (shoulder injury) and Stephen DeBose (ineligible). Diaz should be back this week. “We’re trying to be as flexible as possible to move some kids around up front,” Muir said. Valencia hasn’t started 0-2 since the school’s inaugural season in 1995. The good news for Valencia last week was the emergence of new quarterback Graham Wilbert, as the 6-foot-5 junior passed for 339 yards and four TDs with no INTs. That was a huge statement because Wilbert wasn’t named the starter until three days before the opener. Valencia also features RB Shane Vereen, an All-America candidate who’s closing in on the Foothill League’s career touchdown record. Last week, Vereen rushed for 182 yards in just 15 carries and scored three TDs, including a 50-yard reception. Bishop Amat impressed with a 26-23 road victory over host St. Paul of Santa Fe Springs at “the pit” – which is never an easy to place to win. Dominic Gaisie’s 5-yard TD run with just over three minutes remaining was the difference. He finished with 62 yards on 12 carries. Valencia owns a 4-2 series advantage over the Lancers, including three consecutive victories over the past three years. WEST RANCH (0-0) AT MOJAVE (0-0), 7 p.m. OUTLOOK: West Ranch, a seniorless freelance program playing a full varsity schedule for the first time, would love to make the 150-mile roundtrip to the high desert a worthwhile opening venture, but it won’t be easy. Mojave has averaged eight victories over the past five seasons, and advanced to the section semifinals or better three times over the past four years. QB Jake Bernards and RB/LB Tyler O’Brien key West Ranch, which went 2-1 against varsity competition last season. SANTA CLARITA CHRISTIAN (0-0) VS. BETHEL CHRISTIAN (0-0) OF LANCASTER AT CANYON HS, SATURDAY 7 p.m. OUTLOOK: Eight-man competitor Santa Clarita Christian, led by RB/LB Garrett Borden, hopes for a good start after failing to qualify for the playoffs last season. The Cardinals play mostly night games for the first time this season in their new home stadium at Canyon High.

Making a big deal about baby car seats

first_imgMONTEBELLO – Bell resident Mirtha Ayala had already purchased a car seat for her newborn baby daughter Sarahi but discovered it was too big for a 6-pound infant. Most of the car seats she looked at were too big. It didn’t matter. On Friday, Ayala left Beverly Hospital in Montebello with a free car seat that was perfect for Sarahi. “A lot of mothers don’t want to go out and buy two car seats,” she said. “This way they don’t have to have a smaller baby in a larger car seat. It’s better for a baby to be in a seat that fits its size.” Barclay said Beverly Hospital began giving away car seats about three years ago, largely because of a law stipulating that new babies must go home in them from the hospital. “The guild just started donating them this year,” she explained. “Usually it comes out of the marketing budget, but this year it’s the guild \.” The Beverly Guild was founded in 1952, shortly after the hospital opened, to help support the private, nonprofit facility. “It’s a group of men and women who volunteer their time to the hospital,” Barclay said. “Each year they try to find out what the hospital most needs and they raise funds for it. This year, they chose to buy the car seats.” Barclay and Corali Nakamatsu, women’s services supervisor, said that the guild recently refurbished a delivery room and donated neonatal baby warmers. It also recently donated two vans to the hospital for patient transportation. “We have a very strong guild,” said Susan Antonisamy, volunteer services coordinator. “It’s a very busy, strong auxiliary arm of the hospital. Most members are from the community we serve and have lived here a long, long time. We have many of the original guild members still working for us.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Gomez celebrates Christmas Mass with inmates“This one is better than the other one,” the new mom said, gently fitting Sarahi into the blue car seat provided by the hospital’s guild. “The belt on the other seat doesn’t fit her well. I was scared she could come out, but this one is snugger.” Car seats for newborns are vital to their safety, but they can be pretty pricey, hovering around $100. That’s why Beverly Hospital’s guild, its fundraising arm, donated $31,000 to provide newborn-size car seats for every new mother who delivers at Beverly this year. The money will purchase about 1,900 seats. Cybil Barclay, head nurse of Beverly’s maternity center, said that the donated seats are specifically intended for smaller babies, under 20 pounds. last_img read more

Chavez looks to next election

first_imgALHAMBRA – Six weeks after the Nov. 7 election, the 2010 campaign for District 1 City Council has already begun. Alhambra candidate Carlos Chavez has conceded defeat after a preliminary vote recount in his race against Stephen Sham, but Chavez has also thrown down the gauntlet. The high school math teacher came up 90 votes short, but said Friday he would “definitely” run when Sham’s four-year term is up, and that he will support candidates in the next elections. “What does this all mean? It means that there are still issues to be raised in Alhambra,” Chavez said. “I am going to be active and I am going to see these political thugs in 2008 and 2010.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhicker: John Jackson greets a Christmas that he wasn’t sure he’d seeThe recount cost Chavez $3,200 a day.
