• Lazio and Naples postpone the return to training

    first_imgThere were tensions over the matter in the past week as the owners of Lazio and Naples did intend to return to work soon. Andrea Agnelli attacked President Claudio Lotito during the Series A assembly on March 13 (“You think more about the classification than the health of your footballers“He said) and yesterday Massimo Cellino, president of Brescia, did the same in the‘ Corriere dello Sport ’:”If Lotito wants the scudetto, let him have it. I am already thinking about the next course, nothing else“ Lazio and Naples, as expected, will not train again this week. The Roman club yesterday announced that the return to work was postponed ‘sine die’ due to the coronavirus emergency. Southerners, on the other hand, they had communicated during the past week first that the team would have trained this Monday, while on Friday the date was postponed to Wednesday.A formal communication, which caused a lot of controversy on social networks and will soon be replaced by another. The Azzurri players already knew informally that on Wednesday they will not have to go to the sports city of Castel Volturno, an inevitable decision in the face of the coronavirus emergency in the transalpine country, which today it has 63,927 total infected and 6,077 deceased.last_img read more

  • Stanley Pringle difference maker for struggling NorthPort

    first_imgRashad Woods may be the import but Stanley Pringle remains as NorthPort’s most important player.ADVERTISEMENT Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown “Of course, it would have been a lot different because even if we had a lot of injuries but if Stanley was there it helps me a lot also,” Woods said of Pringle, who finished with 26 points and seven assists in a 118-101 win over Columbian.The Batang Pier’s hopes of making the playoffs are bleak at 1-6 but Woods stays positive especially after the team got a much-needed shot in the arm.“[This win] just shows that we’re not a team that will lose every game and it can help us with our confidence. Confidence is all we need right now,” said Woods, who struggled with only 13 points on 5-of-14 shooting from the field and 10 rebounds.ADVERTISEMENT Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Yeng at heart: Guiao opens up on Gilas, Congress Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

  • Mickelson ready for new challenge

    first_imgPhil Mickelson is so enthused about how well he is hitting the ball that he was looking forward to tough, windy conditions along the ocean Friday at Pebble Beach. He didn’t get what he wanted, and had few complaints. Sutherland thought briefly about the course record of 62 at Spyglass, just long enough to snap-hook his 3-wood into the trees and out of play on the par-5 seventh. He reloaded with a two-stroke penalty, reached the green in two, escaped with a bogey and didn’t let one bad hole take away from his round. “Spyglass is one of my favorite courses in the world,” said Sutherland, who has played it countless times dating to his amateur days in Northern California. “I’d rather play there than Pebble Beach. But a 63 was not the score I was thinking about when I teed off.” Sutherland plays his best golf on the West Coast – his only victory was the 2001 Accenture Match Play Championship at La Costa – and was in the final group two weeks ago at Torrey Pines until he finished in a tie for 14th. “I’m very much aware I need to make a lot more birdies,” Sutherland said with a smile. Davis Love III made a quiet climb into contention with a 67 at Pebble Beach, but perhaps the biggest surprise came from the group behind Mickelson – 57-year-old Tom Watson, playing this tournament for the last time. Watson finished with a 68, leaving him six shots behind at 6-under 138. Allianz Champ. Craig Stadler eagled the par-5 18th hole for a 9-under 63 and a one-stroke lead, while Nick Price shot a 71 in his first Champions Tour round in Boca Raton, Fla. Mark James was second after a bogey-free 64. Andy Bean opened with a 66, and Tom Kite, Morris Hatalsky, John Harris and Bobby Wadkins shot 67s. Jay Haas and Loren Roberts were in a group at 68. Australian Masters South Korea’s Ahn Sun-ju shot a 4-under 68 to take a one-stroke lead after the second round in Gold Coast, Australia. The 19-year-old Ahn had a 12-under 132 total on the Royal Pines course. Australia’s Michelle Ellis was second after a 66. American Cristi Kerr, making her first start of the year, was 6 under after her second straight 69. Five-time champion Karrie Webb, coming off a victory last week in the Women’s Australian Open, was 5 under after a 68. Natalie Gulbis (73) was 2 under. Malaysian Open Thailand’s Chinarat Phadungsil shot a 5-under 67 to take the clubhouse lead during the rain-disrupted second round in Kuala Lumpur. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Mickelson only had to cope with the cold and rain – but not much wind – and that helped him sail to a 5-under 67 and a share of the lead with Jim Furyk at the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. “It was a good day. We got a pretty good draw,” Mickelson said. “It was a little windy the last three or four holes, but I’m not going to complain. We had a great day to take advantage of scoring.” center_img He had chances to score even lower, but three straight birdies on the back nine at tame Pebble Beach, and a simple up-and-down for birdie on the par-5 18th enabled him to catch Furyk and reach 12-under 132. Furyk also was pleased to see the flags drooping instead of flapping when he arrived at Poppy Hills, especially after seeing a forecast of 15 mph wind and heavy rain. The rain was brief and light, and he birdied all but one of the par 5s on his way to a 65. “I think we got out of it pretty good today,” Furyk said. “Hoping for the same tomorrow.” That gave the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am a good 1-2 punch at the top from the two highest-ranked players in the field. Furyk (No. 2) and Mickelson (No. 6) had a three-shot lead over rookie and Long Beach State alum John Mallinger, and Kevin Sutherland, who turned in the best round of the dreary afternoon by firing off 10 birdies for a 63 at Spyglass Hill. last_img read more

    first_imgTAXPAYERS have been left to pay a €15,000 ‘parking’ fee after a dispute between two Co Donegal brothers over a slurry tanker.Letterkenny District Civil Court heard how Jeffrey McKinney and his brother Brian had fallen out over the ownership of the tanker.But when Jeffrey McKinney broke into the farmyard of Brian’s home and took the tanker a theft complaint was made to gardaí. Detectives seized the Belmac 2100 tanker and it has been in a private compound yard since, costing gardaí €15,000 in fees.Garda Darren Carter told the court that he responded to a report of a theft from Brian McKinney’s home at Knockbrack outside Letterkenny on April 8 last year.Brian McKinney was away working in Scotland but his wife and brother-in-law reported that a padlock on a gate to the farmyard had been cut. He said a tractor and a car parked in front of the slurry tanker had been moved and the tanker was missing. Other pieces of equipment were also reported missing including a Honda generator and some saws.Garda Carter said Detective Tom Kilcoyne was asked to help the investigation and the detective later stopped Jeffrey McKinney towing the slurry tanker using a New Holland tractor loaned to him by Drumkeen farmer Norman Woods.He said Jeffrey McKinney claimed ownership of the tanker; however gardaí had been forced to seize the item while an investigation was carried out.He said he subsequently interviewed Brian McKinney who said he had paid for the tanker and produced a receipt to prove it.Jeffrey McKinney told Judge Paul Kelly during the court hearing into the case that he had paid half of the original €8,000 cost of the tanker. He said he had sold cattle to do so.He also claimed his brother Brian had told him that if he settled a €3k repair bill later he could keep the slurry tanker. He also produced a hand-written letter which he claimed was signed by Brian in which the ownership was jointly agreed.But Brian McKinney told the judge this wasn’t the case, insisting he had purchased the tanker. He said he was the rightful owner of the tanker.He also said the hand-written letter produced in court was a forgery.Judge Paul Kelly agreed, noting that letter produced in court was clearly a photocopy as there were no indentation marks on the paper and the punch-holes in the paper were also copied.The judge said Jeffrey McKinney had believed it was “perfectly acceptable to take the law into his own hands” by taking the tanker in the first place.He said Jeffrey McKinney could have gone to court to claim ownership in the first place. He said his story had “no credibility” and he ordered that the slurry tanker should be returned to Brian McKinney.Inspector Goretti Sheridan asked that the tanker be collected from the compound where it was being kept “today if possible as it’s costing us a fortune”.Judge Kelly asked how much storing the tanker had cost the State.“It has already cost us €15,000 and we want rid of it as soon as possible,” added the inspector.TAXPAYERS’ LEFT WITH €15,000 ‘PARKING’ BILL AFTER BROTHERS FALL-OUT OVER SLURRY TANKER was last modified: July 8th, 2016 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:BROTHERScourtKNOCKBRACKletterkennyslurry tankerlast_img read more
