Gladbach-Cologne, suspended by Sabine, will be played on 11-M

first_imgThe Bundesliga match between Gladbach and Cologne, suspended this past Sunday due to the Sabine storm, already has a new date. As announced by the German league federation (DFL), the twenty-first day of the maximum German competition will be played on March 11 at 6:30 p.m. in Gladbach’s Borussia Park, coinciding in this way with the round of 16 of the Champions League. Borussia Dortmund will visit PSG that same day, but since neither Gladbach nor Cologne are playing European competition there were no problems when it came to setting the match in the middle of a Champions League day. The entries remain valid.last_img

Wenger gets better of Mourinho

first_img A disappointing game burst into life in the 54th when Xhaka, afforded plenty of space in central midfield following a throw-in, advanced and sent in a 30-metre (yard) shot that struck the turned back of Ander Herrera and looped over goalkeeper David de Gea. Welbeck, who was sold to Arsenal in 2014 to end a 13-year association with United, has now scored in each of his last three appearances against his old club after powering a header in off the bar in the 57th from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s cross. Mourinho made eight changes to his starting team from the 1-0 win over Celta Vigo in the first leg of the Europa League semi- finals on Thursday. The second leg is at Old Trafford on Thursday and Mourinho has suggested the European competition, which offers a place in the Champions League for the winner, is his priority for the remainder of the season. “Of course, we knew we were not coming in our maximum power,” Mourinho said. “Thursday is the match of the season.” It meant the 19-year-old Axel Tuanzebe was handed his Premier League debut, at right back up against Alexis Sanchez, and he performed excellently. Scott McTominay, a 20-year-old midfielder, came on as a second-half substitute for his first-team debut, while Paul Pogba – the world’s most expensive player – did not even come off the bench. United has not scored away to a top-six rival all season. Arsenal will climb above United with a win at Southampton on Wednesday. LONDON, England (AP): Arsene Wenger got the better of managerial rival Jose Mourinho for the first time in a league game as Arsenal beat Manchester United 2-0 in the English Premier League yesterday to keep alive its Champions League qualification hopes. Granit Xhaka, with a deflected shot, and former United player Danny Welbeck, with a bullet header, scored goals in a four-minute span early in the second half to end United’s 25-match unbeaten in the league dating to October. This was the 16th competitive head to head between Wenger and Mourinho – and the 13th in league play – since 2004. It has been a one-sided rivalry but, Wenger finally got a victory over the man who once dubbed him a “specialist in failure,” for a result that might end United’s chances of a top-four finish and leaves Arsenal with some hope. “Finally, I leave this (Emirates) stadium with Arsenal fans happy,” Mourinho said. “It’s the first time I see them smile, enjoy.” Arsenal moved two points behind fifth-place United with a game in hand, and is seven points behind third-placed Liverpool having played two games fewer, and six behind fourth-placed Manchester City, having played one game fewer. Wenger’s team has four matches remaining to earn a 20th straight season in the Champions League. “We still have a mathematical chance, but we need some help,” Wenger said. “But the best help we can get is by winning our own games.” DISAPPOINTING GAMElast_img read more

Mr. Lumeh said.LIVARTS Administrator, Mr. Leon Z. Wilson, reminded parents and students about the United Nations position on the Rights of the Child stated in the 1948 agreement declared in Article 26 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights “education should be compulsory and free for children”.

He said it also helps its practitioner see the good works of God and make it appear differently.He admonished the students that with the practice of arts, they stand a chance of being great people in society.The students thank all partners and sponsors for helping the schools administration, financially and morally for taking them thus far.They reassured their parents that they will all make a difference because arts is very important to them.The school which is made of a single classroom has a population of 31 students aging between 10 to 25.For his part, Mr. Henry Appleton, Director, for Vocational  Education at the Ministry of Education, in presenting the certificates to the students, admonished them to remain focused in their studies at LIVARTS. “The Ministry [of Education] places high priority on vocational education in the country,” he said. “Because it is through vocational education that any nation can alleviate unemployment”.He thank the donors and partners of the academy for their support to this initiative. He also commended the  administration of LIVARTS for working so hard to keep the school running.LIVARTS is a community-based specialized training program for disadvantaged children with support from the U.

Veracruz, Monterrey advance

first_imgCARSON – Veracruz and Monterrey on Wednesday night advanced to the InterLiga finals, gaining some measure of consolation following fall Primera Division campaigns that closed poorly. Veracruz (2-1-0), which posted the worst record in Mexico’s Apertura season, edged Morelia 1-0 at Home Depot Center to win Group A in the annual winter tournament that determines Mexico’s final two entrants in Copa Libertadores, South America’s club championship. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa Anita It was a night short on drama, unlike Tuesday, when Guadalajara advanced to the final four after Omar Bravo scored deep into stoppage time for a 1-1 draw with Necaxa, sending a crowd of 26,253 into a frenzy. Wednesday’s attendance, with no marquee teams in action, was announced at 8,620, but the gathering appeared far smaller. Gustavo Biscayzacu’s second goal of the tournament, a 16-yard shot to the lower right in the 44th minute, was the difference for Veracruz, which went 3-8-6 last fall. InterLiga participation was determined by performances in the previous two championships, the 2005 spring Clausura and 2004 Apertura. The game was halted in the 70th minute when the stadium went black, the result, according to a Southern California Edison official, of a power surge that knocked out power in the area surrounding HDC. It took 16 minutes to get the stadium lights going, and the match resumed following a 19-minute lapse. Monterrey dominated much of the second game and went ahead on Ricardo Martinez’s 67th-minute strike. Pachuca (1-1-1) pulled even in the 86th minute on Nelson Cuevas’ goal. Gabriel Caballero preserved the draw a minute later, knocking away Gaston Fernandez’s shot after the Monterrey forward rounded goalkeeper Miguel Calero. Monterrey (1-0-2), a controversial loser in last month’s Apertura championship, also advanced to Sunday’s twin title games, pushing through with a 1-1 draw against Pachuca. On Sunday at 3 and 5:30 p.m., Veracruz will face Guadalajara, and Monterrey will take on crosstown rival UANL Tigres, a rematch of a scintillating Apertura semifinal, with the winners claiming berths in Copa Libertadores. The order of games will be determined today, but Guadalajara – the big draw – likely will play in the second final. center_img Pachuca finished the match with 10 players after Marvin Cabrera was red-carded for a violent foul in stoppage time.

MAN HID SHOTGUN BEHIND BATH FOR YOUNG ROBBERS

first_imgA West Donegal man who hid a sawn-off shotgun and other objects used in a number of robberies has received a suspended jail sentence.Maurice Boyle, 23, of Loughanure, pleaded guilty to the possession of the shotgun at his home on March 1st, 2009.Garda Paul Gallagher told Letterkenny Circuit Court that Gardai met with Boyle at a checkpoint and they agreed to go to his house. Gardai searched the house and found a rusted German shotgun behind the panel of a bath.They also found five spent cartridge shells as well as three unused shells, balaclavas and gloves.Boyle initially denied the gun was his at all and was interviewed on eleven different occasions.The court was told that Gardai suspected the gun found in Boyle’s house had been used in a series of robberies across West Donegal.Two local men Paul McEleney, 19, of Middle Dore, Bunbeg and Tadhg McKelvey, 18, of Loughanure, were previously charged with robbing McDevitt’s Service Station in Dungloe, Gallagher’s Topaz in Derrybeg and Templecrone Cope.Both men received Community Service Orders.The court heard how Boyle was dating and had a daughter with McEleney’s sister and felt a certain amount of loyalty to him.Boyle said he was embarrassed for his family for what he had done and apologised to the court.He also revealed how he had received a promise of a job in the UK and planned to move there, make some money and invite his partner and their four year old child to join him there.Judge John O’Hagan said he remembered the case of both McKelvey and McEleney well as he had been criticised by the public when he passed sentence.However he said he gave them a chance and as far as he knew both men had stayed out of trouble.And he told Boyle that he was also giving him a chance.“I propose to give him a chance. I hope that I never see him in any court in future. What you did was foolish, mad, crazy as young people do. I know a lot of people in Donegal were cross with me and sympathetic towards the young girls in the shop. It is my decision. You are not getting away with it. It could restrict your ability to go away,” he said.He sentenced Boyle to five years in prison but substituted it for 240 hours community service.At hearing.

Last of Simiopolis

first_img He has, however, put years of work into the old colony house and the gardens that surround it on a nearly one-acre Pacific Street lot, south of Los Angeles Avenue and west of First Street. He, too, hopes the home can be moved to be moved to Strathearn Historical Park, and so, as he makes improvements, he is careful to preserve the historical details. An old-fashioned white picket fence runs around the property, extending to a neighboring house he also owns. Powell said he plans to do more work upgrading the area, while preserving its historic character. The old home is unique, with a definite custom appearance inside and out, but a tract house is still what it was in 1890, when Ninetta Eames wrote about her journey to Simi Valley in the Overland Monthly magazine. “There was something uncanny about this lonely village, with its mathematical likeness and precision,” said Eames of the colony houses in the development of Simiopolis. The developers sold the homes with advertisements stressing the area’s booming real estate market and wonderful climate, “delightfully cool and pleasant in summer, and free from frosts in winter.” One ad even showed a paddle steamer on the Arroyo Simi (about a block from Powell’s house), which was actually a dry gulch much of the year. The first tract-home buyers found in Simiopolis a town with no river, no schools or churches and no roads, like a Western movie set in the middle of nowhere. Eames stayed the night about four miles away from Simiopolis, near what is now Los Angeles Avenue and Stearns Street. There she found a grand old hotel designed by Samuel and Joseph Cather Newsom, architects of California landmarks such as the 1890 Piru Mansion and the 1884 Carson House in Eureka. She fell asleep, only to awake to “the unearthly howling of coyotes near my window.” About 1917, the old Simi Hotel was dismantled and the lumber used to built more homes in Simi Valley. Through much of Simi Valley’s history, Powell’s house was owned by the Printz family, which ran the postal and telephone services for the community. From 1904 to 1941, Rosa Arabella Printz was postmistress, and she and her three daughters eventually ran the town’s telephone service from their home. “The Printz family purchased two of the colony houses,” Havens said. “They lived in one from about 1904, and when it burned down (after one of the daughters knocked over a kerosene lamp), they moved to the other.” Bessie Printz, Arabella’s daughter, lived in the house before Powell and worked for the telephone company until her retirement. Powell calls the colony house a dream home, even though it constantly needs work and doesn’t have modern amenities such as forced-air heating and cooling. “You cannot bring furniture upstairs through the hallway, because the hallway is so narrow,” he said. A good deal of the house is made with square nails, which he saves if he removes them during his restoration work. He has also saved many old tools, pots and pans and other relics he has found around the property, sometimes displaying them like folk art on his wooden fences and tool shed. It all sets up a unique atmosphere on the land where Powell tends a sprawling garden. “When I first bought I had to jack up the east side, and recently had to jack up the west side to level it. An old pepper tree fell in the winds and slammed the garage to the ground. So the garage there is new, and I built a porch on it to match the house. It looks like a granny flat, but it’s just a garage. “I’ve redone the bathroom completely. I’ve redone the gardens. The mature trees came with the property. The pepper tree that went down was probably 80 to 100 years old. There were orange and grapefruit trees, and I’ve added avocados. “I’ve made it really comfortable.” Eric Leach, (805) 583-7602 eric.leach@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! SIMI VALLEY – Larry Powell found himself a dream home in what was once part of the valley’s first housing tract, a place called Simiopolis. The tract was made up of 12 identical “colony houses” that were partially assembled in Chicago before being shipped by rail and horse-drawn wagon to Simi Valley around 1889. They sold for about $300 each. Many of the colony houses burned down. Only two survived, including one on exhibit in Simi Valley’s historical park. The other, still on its original lot, is proudly owned by Powell. “About 18 years ago, I drove by and couldn’t believe it was for sale,” said Powell, a jack-of-all-trades who owns a landscaping business. “Three days later, it was in escrow.

I could live in a brand-new house, but it couldn’t be a tract house.” Simi Valley historian Pat Havens said she admires the work Powell has put into the home and hopes the structure can someday be moved to the Strathearn Historical Park, to be preserved for future generations. “I think it’s just marvelous that he treasures it, and it’s being preserved,” she said. “He’s kind of old-school – quite a guy. “The place looks really pretty there on the corner. It’s neat somebody is willing to live in the house, as old as it is. You can tell he loves it.” Powell has used construction skills he learned from his father to fix up other homes he has purchased in his Simi Valley neighborhood. last_img read more
