Albion almost took the lead within 60 seconds when Salomon Rondon’s header was parried away by Villa keeper Brad Guzan. But before the interval, Berahino stuck out a foot to steer James Morrison’s shot home.CHELSEA 2ARSENAL 0GOALS:- CHELSEA:ZOUMA 53; HAZARD 90.Chelsea won only their second Barclays Premier League of this season against nine-man Arsenal. Kurt Zouma headed the opening goal after 53 minutes before Eden Hazard’s shot flew in off Calum Chambers late on. But Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was furious after Arsenal defender Gabriel was sent off seconds before half-time for kicking out at Diego Costa. And then Santi Cazorla was given a second yellow card for a foul on Cesc F‡bregas.MANCHESTER CITY 1WEST HAM UNITED 2GOALS:-CITY: DE BRUYNE 45. WEST HAM: MOSES 6; SAKHO 31.Manchester City’s perfect start was punctured by West Ham, who added their scalp to that of Arsenal and Liverpool. Victor Moses drilled in his first West Ham goal with a low 20-yard shot which crept inside Joe Hart’s left-hand post. The visitors doubled their lead when Diafra Sakho hooked in from six yards. City’s record-signing Kevin De Bruyne fired in to halve the deficit, but West Ham held on to move intosecond place.NEWCASTLE UNITED 1WATFORD 2GOALS:-NEWCASTLE: JANMAAT 62. WATFORD: IGHALO 10, 28.Newcastle dropped into the relegation zone after Odion Ighalo’s double led Watford to a second successive victory. Nigeria international Ighalo, who has now scored 20 goals in 24 league games in 2015, claimed the opener after 10 minutes. The striker then took Troy Deeney’s pass to round Krul before the break. Daryl Janmaat gave Newcastle a lifeline.STOKE CITY 2LEICESTER CITY 2GOALS:-STOKE: KRKIC 13; WALTERS 20 . LEICESTER: MAHREZ PEN 51; VARDY 69.Leicester came back from two goals down to draw 2-2 at Stoke City and maintain their unbeaten start to theseason. Jamie Vardy equalised after Riyad Mahrez scored his fifth goal of the season from the penalty spot. Bojan Krkic, making his first start of the season, had given Stoke an early lead from Marko Arnautovic’s pass. Jonathan Walters doubled the advantage but Stoke are still searching for their first win of the season.SWANSEA CITY 0EVERTON 0GOALS:-NONE.Swansea and Everton emerged with a point apiece from a goalless draw at the Liberty Stadium. Everton had the better of a dull first half, although Swansea’s Bafitimbi Gomis came closest to scoring when skewing wide of Tim Howard’s goal. Both teams improved after the break, but Everton striker Romelu Lukaku twice shot over the bar when through on goal.SUN, SEPT 20LIVERPOOL 1NORWICH CITY 1GOALS:-LIVERPOOL: INGS 48. NORWICH: MARTIN 61.Daniel Sturridge made his first Liverpool appearance in more than five months as Brendan Rodgers’s side were held to a draw at home to Norwich.

UNITED: MARTIAL 34, 50; MATA 68.Anthony Martial’s great start at Manchester United continued as the £36-million striker scored twice at Southampton. United went behind when Graziano Pelle converted a loose ball. But Martial equalised and then took advantage of a terrible Maya Yoshida backpass to slot in a second. Juan Mata added a third and while Pelle headed a late second, Unitedheld on.TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR 1CRYSTAL PALACE 0GOAL:-TOTTENHAM: SON 68.Son Heung-min scored his third goal in two games to give Tottenham their first home Barclays Premier League win of the season against Crystal Palace. The South Korea international, signed this summer from Bayer Leverkusen, followed up his two goals in Spurs’ Europa League tie in midweek with the winning goal on the break. His low shot under Alex McCarthy came after Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris had made a superb save from Bakary Sako.last_img read more

Selanne starts, ends it

first_img“When it was 4-1 I was thinking, `What’s going on? There’s no intensity, no passion, none whatsoever,” Selanne said. “But it takes 20 guys getting frustrated to get their work boots on and start working. We started battling and the momentum totally changed for us. “Hopefully this is a turning point for us. I almost forgot how good it feels to win a game.” Penner made it 4-3 at 5:11 of the third off a rebound before Pronger tied the game on a disputed goal from the top of the left circle. Television replays showed the Ducks had used a hand pass to move the puck from the crease to Ryan Getzlaf on the wing before he moved the puck to Pronger, but the play was not reviewable. Three of Phoenix’s four goals and a near miss by Anaheim had been reviewed earlier in the game. Anaheim opened a 1-0 lead 3:33 into the game when Selanne scored on a rebound. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

GLENDALE, Ariz. – Teemu Selanne scored his second goal on a power play with 3:07 left in overtime, and the Anaheim Ducks rallied from a three-goal deficit to beat the Phoenix Coyotes 5-4 on Thursday night. Chris Pronger also scored twice and Dustin Penner added a goal for the Ducks, who beat Phoenix for the fifth time in six games this season and snapped a three-game skid overall. center_img Mathias Tjarnqvist, Keith Ballard, Owen Nolan and Oleg Saprykin scored for Phoenix, which has lost three straight. Selanne, who scored the game’s first goal, beat Curtis Joseph with a shot from the left edge of the crease into the top right side of the net for his 526th career goal. Selanne, who also had an assist, moved past New York Islanders great Bryan Trottier into sole possession of 27th place on the career goals list. Pronger started the Ducks’ rally from a 4-1 deficit with a power-play goal with 4.4 seconds left in the second period, beating Joseph on a blast from top of the left faceoff circle. “We need to get on a little bit of a roll, get some wins under our belt and get some confidence back,” Pronger said. last_img

Loney’s path is not easy to tell so far

first_imgVERO BEACH, Fla. – James Loney was talking, laughing and trying to be analytical after the daytime half of Wednesday’s Grapefruit League doubleheader, so there was no doubt he was alive. But the dark, orange circles ringing his irises made him look like one of the zombies from “Night of the Living Dead.” The Dodgers first-base prospect was wearing sunglass-tinted contact lenses, one of the latest innovations in optical wear. But even on a blindingly bright afternoon when the Dodgers fell 11-1 to the world champion St. Louis Cardinals before 4,525 at Holman Stadium, those uber-cool shades didn’t help Loney see any more clearly into his immediate future. “What I need to work on is (tracking) balls hit from that angle. When we take fly balls in practice, the guy hitting them is standing in the outfield with us. So one thing I want to start doing is having somebody hit me more fly balls from home plate,” said Loney, 22, the club’s first-round pick in the 2002 amateur draft. Ultimately, though, it might not matter. Loney’s spot on the team probably depends more than anything else on something far beyond his control – and far beyond anyplace his Grapefruit League statistics alone can carry him. After all, the first thing the Dodgers must have if they are to keep Loney is a roster spot to put him in. And that probably hinges on keeping only 11 pitchers, something the club likely will do because it won’t need a fifth starter until April 10. Saito returns Closer Takashi Saito, who has been limited in running but not in throwing by a strained right calf, made his spring debut, pitching a scoreless fifth inning. Loney had just played the entire game, going 3 for 3 with a walk to raise his spring average to .421 and his on-base percentage to .500. But he also had played the first five innings in right field, his first appearance there this spring but in no way his last, and he looked utterly lost in the process. Still, the ability to play multiple positions might end up being a deciding factor in whether Loney – the man who came to spring training perched more squarely on the proverbial bubble than any other Dodgers player – makes this club. center_img Cutting remark Although he had previously said the camp roster probably wouldn’t be pared down until after the final split-squad on March 15, Dodgers manager Grady Little now says that first round of cuts might come later this week. “With 58 players, it’s going to get harder to get enough work for everyone,” Little said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Prosecutor calls for priest’s conviction

first_img The case is expected to go to the jury today. Jayson B. claims he was sexually abused by Wempe between 1990 and 1995 at Wempe’s office at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and in two cars. As a young boy, he said, he would sit on Wempe’s lap in front of the computer while the priest typed with one hand and fondled him with the other. He testified that he played games on Wempe’s office computer and remembered the priest using a Windows program. On Wednesday, a technology expert who worked at the hospital testified that Wempe’s computer had not been equipped for video games nor could it run a Windows program. Jurors also heard from Ed Torres, a district attorney’s senior investigator whose written report on an interview with Jayson last March conflicted with much of what the accuser said on the witness stand. Torres admitted to errors in his report. He wrote that Jayson claimed to have been molested in the 1970s and ’80s. He said he knows now that Jayson wasn’t born until 1979. “I must have made a mistake,” the witness said. Wempe, 66, denies molesting Jayson but has acknowledged Jayson’s two older brothers were among 13 boys he abused in the 1970s and 1980s. The former priest cannot be prosecuted for those crimes because the statute of limitations has expired. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! A prosecutor urged jurors Thursday to convict a priest of sexual-molestation charges, depicting him as an unrepentant sinner whose crimes wrecked the lives of those he abused. With retired Catholic priest Michael Wempe watching impassively from across the courtroom, Deputy District Attorney Todd Hicks spoke of crimes against many men who have accused the defendant of molesting them. “In this case you can see what he has done to wreck lives,” Hicks said. “You have seen the alcoholism, drug abuse, failed relationships, confusion. You have seen questions and you have seen secrets.” He said many of the men who were molested as boys didn’t come forward until news of a church scandal in Boston triggered their memories. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card In his closing arguments, Hicks told jurors, “It’s time for the defendant to pay for his sins.” After three weeks of accusations from a parade of eight past molestation victims, jurors are being asked to decide whether one additional man, Jayson B., is telling the truth when he says he was abused by Wempe. The eight who testified and five others whom Wempe’s lawyers admit were abused decades ago are not the issue in this first trial of a priest whose past misconduct could not be prosecuted because of legal time limits. Jayson alone, now 26, has brought Wempe to court and his is the only case that could send the former priest to jail. Wempe’s defense lawyer spent the last day of testimony Wednesday casting doubt on Jayson’s veracity, suggesting he made up his story of abuse to avenge his two brothers who were abused by Wempe years earlier. Throughout the trial, the prosecution portrayed the 66-year-old Wempe as a pedophile who habitually preyed on young boys and the defense claiming he was cured during a church-ordered treatment in 1987 and never molested again. last_img read more

Four hope to unseat sheriff

first_imgFor years, Sheriff Lee Baca had a statue of a Buddhist warrior in his office, a gift from someone who thought the symbol of strength and peace reflected the sheriff’s character. But the statue now rests in the undersheriff’s office. “The undersheriff liked it, and I have a tendency when people like what I have, I give it to them,” said Baca, who faces four challengers in his June 6 bid for a third term. More recently, Baca videotaped a birthday message for Church of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard and wrote a letter in support of a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility outside Leona Valley with ties to the church. Baca, who holds a doctorate in public administration from the University of Southern California, is especially proud of creating the LASD University to help his employees obtain higher degrees; spearheading efforts to build a new crime lab set to open in January at California State University, Los Angeles; and the upcoming opening of a sheriff’s station in Palmdale. He also touts the creation of programs to rehabilitate substance abusers, spousal batterers and the mentally ill throughout the county. But Baca, who earns $249,603 a year, has faced accusations that he’s mismanaged his department’s $2 billion-a-year budget and allowed violence and racial tensions to fester in the jails, which exploded in rioting earlier this year. His opponents, including three members of his own department, say Baca made critical errors in suspending deputy hiring and closing jails a few years ago. The department is hundreds of deputies below its authorized strength, and Baca has granted early releases to more than 150,000 inmates, including thousands who committed violent crimes shortly after leaving jail. Challenger Paul L. Jernigan Jr., a sheriff’s sergeant, said he’s seen an increase in recent years in “frequent fliers,” repeat offenders who cycle in and out of the jails. “I find I’m handling the arrest of someone for the same crime I handled with them six months ago,” said Jernigan, an 18-year veteran. “When I question them, they said, `I only did 10 days in jail. I steal cars for a living and by the time you caught me again, I had stolen 30 to 40 cars, getting $200 to $400 a pop. It’s easy money.’ “It sends a message to criminals that crime does pay.” If elected, retired sheriff’s Capt. Ken Masse said he intends to go through the entire budget and eliminate waste and unnecessary programs, freeing up funds to hire more deputies and fix the jails. “I know from years of experience that there is a lot of waste,” said Masse, who was endorsed by the Association of Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs. He said the most important thing the department needs to do is restore its staffing levels. “In the last four years, more than 400 deputies have left the department to go to other agencies,” Masse said. “The morale in the department is the lowest I’ve personally ever seen it in my 35 years.” Opponents also criticize Baca for his plans to have inmates build a pond for employees at the North Facility at Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic. “When our people see him intent on building a meditation pond and building trails to walk on instead of trying to repair our infrastructure problems and not providing the resources and tools we need, they say our priorities are all wrong,” said Capt. Ray Leyva, a 25-year department veteran who oversees the North Facility and is vying for the sheriff’s job. If elected, Leyva said, he won’t seek a quarter-cent sales tax increase or a bond measure to raise money for law enforcement. Baca said those measures are still in the planning stages. “We have the money in our budget to get refocused on making infrastructure changes without going to the people for another tax increase, or up to a $750 million bond measure,” Leyva said. The only outsider running for sheriff is Glendale Police Department Lt. Don Meredith, who said he would focus on recruiting military veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. “In the city where I work, we have recruited a number of prominent and decorated veterans,” said Meredith, who has been a police officer for 34 years. “You can create an environment that is attractive to officers from throughout the country who would want to transfer here.” Baca said his challengers aren’t qualified for the job and noted that a recent pay raise and an aggressive recruitment campaign have reduced deputy vacancies from 1,100 to 700 now. He expects that number to fall to 400 by the end of the year. Baca said he’s already added 2,000 beds to the jail system and expects to add 1,000 more by the year’s end. “We’re rebuilding the entire jail system in the county so that we’re making more efficient use of our jail space,” Baca said. “We also have a current plan in place that allows us to enhance our unincorporated patrol staffing.” If re-elected, Baca said, he intends to continue to embrace all the cultures in the county. And as the official who would coordinate the response to any terrorist attack, Baca has made a special effort to reach out to the Muslim-American community. “Our strong premise in Los Angeles is that Muslim-Americans are the most capable of turning the tide against terrorism,” Baca said. “And we have a very vibrant leadership of Muslim-Americans in Southern California who are totally opposed to terrorism, and this is a very important social development that helps not only protect the United States, but Southern California.” troy.anderson@dailynews.com (213) 974-8985160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

He’s also got a $1 million campaign war chest – more than twice as much as his four challengers combined. “It’s tough to unseat an incumbent, but when you have challengers with little resources, it’s an enormous task,” said political consultant Rich Lichtenstein. During his two terms in office, the sheriff has sought to change the reputation of a department with a racist and sexist past and open it up to public scrutiny with the creation of the Office of Independent Review, which oversees internal investigations. last_img

LETTERKENNY CHAMBER CALLS FOR CANDIDATES TO MAKE INFRASTRUCTURE THEIR NO.1 PRIORITY

first_imgThe Letterkenny Chamber is asking the business community and the voting public to insist that infrastructure and access is the top priority for all incoming public representatives. Letterkenny and the North West has many needs but none more so than basic access to the region.There are a very wide range of candidates and each has their own top priorities. Over the last few weeks we have seen Ministerial visits and on every occasion we have asked that they prioritise access to Letterkenny.Sometimes we feel this is falling on deaf ears however we believe that the newly elected members of Donegal County Council must place access as their top priority and must bring pressure to bear on central government to enable this County and town get the roads that its business community needs.Letterkenny Chamber President Gerard Grant explains why this is such an important issue, he told Donegal Daily, “Back in 2008 we were promised that we would be driving on the A5/N2 in 2015 by the Transport Minister.“We are now in 2014 and the A5/N2 is still in public consultation. “The road link to Dublin is the main arterial route for many of our businesses in dealing with customers, suppliers and for transporting goods to and from the region.“It is used when executives from the US Headquartered companies come on regular visits to Letterkenny and it is the first transport link experienced by prospective investors and it is simply not fit for purpose and borderline embarrassing, he added.Grant points to the motorways being built connecting the main cities in the south to Dublin, but Letterkenny and Derry remain cut off.Secondly he points out that the Government is projected to spend almost €370m linking up two sides of the Luas in a city already served by bus, light rail and tram which is scheduled to be finished in 2017.Grant concluded, “The investment and infrastructure deficit in the Northwest needs to be addressed once and for all if economic recovery is to be a reality for every region in the country. “As the new enhanced council forms in June we believe they have a strategic role in the development of this region and they will need bring their influence to bear on this issue.“Letterkenny Chamber takes every opportunity to lobby government and TDs on the serious infrastructure deficiencies that are affecting the North West.“Potential County Councillors hoping to represent this region must do all they can to support us.LETTERKENNY CHAMBER CALLS FOR CANDIDATES TO MAKE INFRASTRUCTURE THEIR NO.1 PRIORITY was last modified: May 14th, 2014 by StephenShare 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:BusinessElection CandidatesLetterkenny ChamberLocal electionsnewsPoliticslast_img read more
