T.O. sqeaks out win over rival

first_img“I felt I was throwing well,” Smith said. “My pitches were working, and our defense played great.” The Lancers (5-0) showed no fear when it came to attacking Panthers standout Andrew Lambo. “We were going to go after him and test him,” Smith said. Thousand Oaks coach Frank Mutz echoed Smith’s sentiments. “When you attack the strike zone, good things will happen.” The Lancers exploited Newbury Park’s lack of a No.2 starter by scoring four runs in the third inning to take a 5-0 lead. Panthers starter Mike Scwhartz failed to record an out as he gave up a single to Collin Lavoie and walked Chris Hannick before issuing back-to-back RBI singles to Jett Bandy, who finished 3 for 3, and Jeff Johnson. Scwhartz was then replaced by Stuart Krock, who gave up a two-run double to Harrison Kain. “Their coach had a game plan. You have to tip your hat off to them,” said Lambo, 2006 Daily News Player of the Year. “We’ll be hungry now that we know what game plan they have. That’s a great team.” The lone bright spot for the Panthers (4-1) was the pitching of 5-foot-4, 109-pound freshmen Jimmy Sherfy. Sherfy, who pitched 22/3innings, inherited runners on second and third in the third inning, but he retired two batters to minimize the damage. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Hydro files for another injunction against Site C protesters

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — BC Hydro has filed an application for an injunction, asking the B.C. Supreme Court to prevent overnight camping and to evict opponents of the Peace River hydroelectric dam project camped outside its downtown Vancouver office.The protesters have been camped outside the office 24 hours a day since March 13. Hydro claims they’re trespassing and present a health and safety risk.- Advertisement -The statement says Hydro informed campers that they did not have permission to be on the property overnight on April 7, telling them they could express their opinions in a designated area during the day.The company adds they were asked to remove their tents, tarps, wood structures and latrine, but have not complied.Among the defendants named in the legal action is Kristin Henry, the protester who recently had to be hospitalized following a three-week hunger strike.A fellow protester, identified only as ‘Kenta’, says the developments in her case resulted in a change in Hydro’s demonstration position, as it was initially saying it was okay to protest.Advertisement Other news media interviewed protesters, who have denied accusations in the application they’ve been harassing and intimidating Hydro workers.But according to the Company’s notice of application, the protesters have damaged the property, intimidated employees, relieved themselves at the site, and used open flames near their tents, creating the potential for a fire.The encampment at the Utility’s head office began last month, shortly after a B.C. Supreme Court judge granted Hydro an injunction to remove protesters from the local area tent camp at the Site C construction site.last_img read more

Wantaway Liverpool star embroiled in fresh laughing gas scandal

first_img1 Raheem Sterling Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling has been pictured apparently inhaling laughing gas for a second time.The 20-year-old England international is seen in footage posted on The Sun’s website reportedly taking nitrous oxide – a legal high – while on holiday in Ibiza.Sterling was previously warned about his off-the-field conduct by Reds manager Brendan Rodgers, having been filmed taking the drug known as “hippy crack” during the football season.In April, Rodgers said: “For me it is something that when you are a professional sportsperson at the top level of the game, I don’t think it is something you should be doing. It is as simple as that.“As I have said before, young players make mistakes. As long as they learn from them, that is what is important.”After speaking to the player, Rodgers then told reporters: “It is [about] perspective as well. If you look at Raheem he didn’t do anything illegal.“It was something he will look back on in years to come and it probably wasn’t the wisest thing to do.”The revelation comes amid a contract wrangle between Sterling and Liverpool, who on Wednesday rejected a bid of around £40million from Manchester City with the club not inclined to sell for anything below their valuation of at least £50million.The Reds have always maintained they do not want to sell Sterling, who has two years remaining on his contract, but there is no doubt his situation on Merseyside has deteriorated since the youngster turned down a new £100,000-a-week deal in January.Agent Aidy Ward’s subsequent claim his client would not even sign for “£900,000-a-week” prompted Liverpool to cancel a scheduled meeting to reopen talks in May.He was then abused by Liverpool fans as he warmed up before the 6-1 defeat against Stoke on the final day of the Barclays Premier League season while he also given a rough reception by Irish fans during England’s recent goalless draw in Dublin.last_img read more

HEALTH: SUPPORT FOR PARENTS OF CYBER BULLIED CHILDREN

first_imgANOTHER organisation is offering advice to parents in wake of recent suicides in the North West linked to trolls and cyber bullies.Parentstop has asked us to share the following information with our readers:Support and advice is available to parents in Donegal who are worried about cyberbullying. Whether you are concerned your child is being bullied or that your child is bullying others, Parentstop can help. The organisation shared the following advice on cyberbullying and how to talk about it with your child: Cyber (or text) bullying involves the use of web or social network posts; text messages; or phone videos/ pictures to embarrass, threaten, tease or ridicule someone. Cyberbullying is a behaviour issue, not a technology problem. It is the same as verbal or physical bullying but uses technology instead.If you are worried your child is being cyberbullied, let them know you are there to help, support and listen.If your child has come to talk to you about bullying, praise them for having to courage to do so.Advise your child not to reply to the messages. Save the messages (texts, photos, etc) as evidence of the bullying. Your child may also be able to use privacy tools to block the person/s who are bullying. Report the cyberbullying. If your child knows who is involved in the bullying (a former friend or someone in school) then get in touch with the school or the parents. You should also report the bullying via the service provider (for e.g. contact the mobile phone operator’s Customer Care or use the Report Abuse facility on Facebook). If the bullying is very serious (for e.g. racism, threats or harassment), you should also speak to the Gardaí.Ask your child to show you the phone tools and website they use to communicate with friends. Spend time getting to know and understand these websites/ tools as this will help you support your child if cyberbullying becomes an issue.Parents can help prevent cyberbullying by encouraging their child to respect others when texting and chatting online. Help them to understand that cyber and text bullying is as hurtful as bullying in person. It’s also important they understand how a joke is not always funny when shared online – it may come across as nasty or hurtful to others.Parentstop Manager, Patricia Lee, said: “We need to understand how our children are connecting and communicating today, welcome the benefits of technology by talking to them about the positives, and be prepared to support them if they come up against negative behaviours online. If your child is experiencing bullying in any way, he or she needs your reassurance, encouragement and support.”If you are facing this or any parenting challenge, get in touch with Parentstop. Parentstop is a free and confidential parent support service in Co. Donegal.

MURPHY: ‘WE WANT TO MAKE UP FOR ULSTER FINAL DEFEAT’

first_imgMichael Murphy playing with children at Glenswilly this week – Pic Geraldine DiverDONEGAL captain Michael Murphy has rounded on critics of his team and insisted he and his players are ready for battle with Laois this Saturday (5pm Carrick on Shannon).The Glenswilly man also dismissed reports in the national media that the players were tired from over-training.“When you get beat people make up things and says you didn’t do this or you didn’t do that,” said Murphy. “We trained hard. Any time we come we train hard, we train collectively and we train good. We have gone through everything preparation wise, the exact same way we prepared for every other game.“We didn’t perform. Monaghan performed and won an Ulster Championship. Champions, deal with it, move on and let’s get on the bandwagon, let’s get at it again and put the best foot forward for Donegal.“People maybe put two and two together, fair assumption fair enough point, but, nah, everything, the legs felt good, mentally we felt we were in a good place, we just didn’t perform.“Monaghan performed in all the facets and I’m going around in circles, but I’ll say it again, they out-defended us and the out-attacked us and we are going to have to out-defend Laois and out-attack Laois and try to score more than them and concede less. That’s it.” Murphy said he and the team met with Jim McGuinness and coach Rory Gallagher on Monday to discuss Sunday’s defeat.“There was a collective positivity. Everybody was there. Everybody was down naturally from the game,” said Michael.“But, everybody was still positive to put it right. We will train the way we always train, the way we always prepare.“Laois will be a huge game. They are coming off the back of a number of wins, good wins at that, and they will be fairly positive from people will maybe look at it as a different mindset.“It will be a tough game. Every qualifier is a tough game. It’s do or die now. “I think any team that gets beaten in a game is mad to go out the next day to try to redeem themselves. If you get beat, you want to try to put it right.“We’re going to prepare the exact same way we did before the Monaghan game, the Tyrone game and the Down game. We’ll prepare for it well, travel well.“We’ll try to get the result and get ready for the next game. We’ve been in the position many times where we’ve got beat and that’s where we are now. We’ll try to put it right.”MURPHY: ‘WE WANT TO MAKE UP FOR ULSTER FINAL DEFEAT’ was last modified: July 24th, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:MURPHY: ‘WE WANT TO MAKE UP FOR ULSTER FINAL DEFEAT’last_img read more
