GLENDALE – Celebri-tant and reality show star Nicole Richie was charged today with misdemeanor drunk driving stemming from her wrongway trip down the Ventura (134) Freeway two months ago, Los Angeles District Attorney’s office said. Richie, 25, is slated to be arraigned Wednesday in Glendale Superior Court, said deputy District Attorney Edwin Greene. She will not have to appear in court. The daughter of singer Lionel Richie and star of “The Simple Life” arrested Dec. 11 after a California Highway Patrol officer said she drove her sport utility vehicle east on the westbound lanes of state Route 134, near the Buena Vista Street exit in Burbank. When officers arrived, they found Richie had stopped in the carpool lane, and she was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The district attorney also alleged Richie had a prior misdemeanor DUI conviction in June 2003.

Dusty Baker played for four teams in his 19-year major league baseball career. He managed four others.He was drafted, traded, signed as a free agent, granted free agency, hired and fired. In times of upheaval, he learned to follow the sun.These days that pursuit is both figurative and literal.Baker, who finished his playing career with the A’s, and who has served the Giants as a player, coach, manager and advisor, runs his own team now.

Junior center Amir Williams dunks the ball during a game against Iowa Jan. 12 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU lost, 84-74.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorThe night is darkest before the dawn, and for the No. 24-ranked Ohio State men’s basketball team (16-4, 3-4), that dawn might have arrived.After struggling through a four-game losing streak — the program’s longest since February 2008 — the Buckeyes got back on track with a 62-55 victory against Illinois last Thursday.Freshman forward Marc Loving said just getting a win helped raise spirits in the locker room.“Our moods are definitely a lot lighter than what they were during the four-game losing streak,” Loving said Tuesday. “I would say there’s been a lighter load going into the next game. I feel like a weight’s been lifted off of us, get a little monkey off our back. Going into this next game, we definitely have a mindset that we’ve got to execute and get stops defensively because that’s what we key on.”It’s been more than two weeks since OSU headed into a game off a win, and some players are hoping their problems have been fixed.Junior center Amir Williams, who saw his minutes decline during the losing streak, said a lot of time in practice has been dedicated to two things: defense and shooting.“We spent a lot of time these past few days working on our defense and a lot with our shooting,” Williams said Tuesday. “That’s mainly been a problem that we’ve had in the past, guys were just driving by us and not playing our principles on defense so we just got back to the basics and broke down what we had to do defensively to keep teams from scoring against us and just get up a lot of shots offensively. We’ve been putting a lot of time into shooting the ball.”Williams added that another four-game losing streak has to be prevented at all costs for a team with as high of goals like OSU’s.“We can’t take any team for granted,” Williams said. “This is a tough conference to play in night in and night out so we’re going to continue to build … That four-game losing streak is something that can’t happen to us again. We’re going to have losses and we’re going to win some games but we can’t just not show up to play like we did those last four games.”Next up, the Buckeyes are set to take on Penn State (10-10, 1-6) and will be hoping to contain their leading scorers, redshirt-junior guard D.J. Newbill (17.2 points per game) and graduate-senior guard Tim Frazier (16.5 points per game).OSU coach Thad Matta said despite the Nittany Lions’ record, they will not be overlooked by the Buckeyes.“You look at Penn State, they’ve been in every single game they’ve played this season and had some of the craziest losses I’ve seen in terms of the ball didn’t bounce their way,” Matta said Tuesday. “Obviously Frazier and Newbill have shown, not only this year but throughout their career, that they can go into an arena and get 30 on you … but you get a pretty good feel of who they’re trying to get shots for and we’ve got to do a pretty good job of locking those guys down the best we can.”The last time OSU lost to Penn State was Jan. 10, 2004. Tipoff is scheduled for Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Schottenstein Center.
Liverpool defender Andy Robertson has revealed what it feels like to be captain of the Scottish football team and how he communicates with his teammates.Due to his outward personality, Robertson would not be an obvious choice as the team’s captain. He’s not a ranter or raver and, at 24, still exudes the youthful enthusiasm that has carried him from amateur status at Queen’s Park to the highest echelons of European football.However, those attributes are why he got the nod from head coach Alex McLeish. He seems willing to take all the commensurate flak.“I feel extra responsibility when we come off the pitch as I have to help lift the boys and all the staff,” Robertson said, according to Daily Mail.“Everyone was down after that performance on Thursday. Fans can react negatively to me, that is all part and parcel of it. Since I was made captain, it has happened a bit more as they see me as a scapegoat.”Virgil van Dijk praises Roberto Firmino after Liverpool’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Virgil van Dijk hailed team-mate Roberto Firmino after coming off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 comeback win against Newcastle United.“I can take it on the chin. I have to up my performances. And if I can help even five per cent to get the lads right for the game against Portugal, then I will do that.”“It hurts. I was part of the team when Gibraltar came to Hampden and scored their first ever international goal.”“We went on to win 6-1 but all the players knew when that goal went in, we could have scored 12 and we’d still get negative reaction from the press and fans.”
Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppNassau, 07 Mar 2016 – Kirkland ‘KB’ Bodie, the musical artist who delivers tough messages to catchy rhythm and rhyme, released his latest Youtube salvo yesterday, taking aim at the government for threatening to replace important land use legislation with a weaker act that he fears fails to protect land or life. The song ‘Das What Real Bahamians Do’, written, performed and produced by ‘KB’, is the latest in a litany of the musician’s lyrics for the environmental movement Save The Bays and like the others, it puts the conscience of a country on notice.“Past songs like ‘Hold dey feet to da fire’ were important because they set the tone, making the point that people need to ask for and demand accountability,” said KB. “But today’s release dealing with the Planning and Subdivision Act was far more challenging. How do you make land use rights and responsibilities sexy? How do make the need for an environmental impact assessment for all developments something people relate to, make it fun, and translate the importance of the right to public consultation into a language that makes people care?”The Act has been a priority issue for Save The Bays, the grass roots environmental organization that has nearly 20,000 followers and friends on Facebook. Environmental attorney and consultant Romi Ferreira, a director of Save The Bays, has been spreading the message of the need to keep the 2010 legislation, speaking to Rotary and other civic organisations, appearing on radio talk shows, at public forums and in paid ‘Say No to PSA’ radio and print ads.“This bill, the 2015 Planning and Subdivision Act that would replace the 2010 Act that we all fought so hard for and was agreed upon, an Act that was passed unanimously, takes away the rights of Bahamians,” said Ferreira. “It takes away the right to be consulted. It is the legitimate expectation of a community to be consulted, to express its opinions and concerns and for those opinions and concerns to be considered before a decision is rendered that will alter that community’s future.”Under the proposed legislation, basic rights of public consultation would vanish and the decision to require an environmental impact assessment would be in the hands of a Cabinet Minister for developments of more than 100 lots despite The Bahamas having signed on to a global agreement to the contrary. The 100-lot scenario, says Ferreira, would only encourage developers to build in phases, 99 lots at a time.While Ferreira looks at the proposed legislation through the eyes of a senior lawyer who has taken environmental and public consultation cases all the way to the Privy Council in London, KB is hoping to get the message across in a way that touches a nerve with a beat that people can’t get out of their heads.“I don’ get it,” sings KB. “I don’t understand, why the government does give away our land…Y’all voted yes on the PSA, now ‘dat y’all in power, you wanna’ take it way…You shouldn’t change the rules when they don’t suit you, you shouldn’t change the law just for the few.”Save The Bays, which sponsors the music with a message and the production of videos appealing to tens of thousands of viewers, has picked up the pace for public online involvement of the environmental movement while partnering with several organisations that have long track records in environmental resource management. A petition to keep the 2010 Planning and Subdivision Act is on its website at www.savethebays.bs and a separate petition calling for Freedom of Information legislation and an environmental protection act along with other measures has already attracted nearly 7,000 signatures.

Cooper: “This ordinance is something I have believed in for a very long time. We have had mayors in this borough that were very qualified and we’ve had mayors that were not. So this is not an attack on this administration solely.” A public hearing will be held at the borough meeting on Tuesday. If it passes the assembly the question would go on the fall ballot for voters to decide on October 1. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Kenai Peninsula Borough has begun to scratch the surface on a debate on whether or not to move towards a borough management style instead of the current mayor style. In a ordinance put before the borough assembly, under a manager form of government, the mayor would still be elected areawide but no longer be the chief administrator of the borough. Instead, a borough manager would be appointed by majority vote of the assembly on the basis of administrative qualifications to serve as the chief administrator. Currently, twelve of the state’s 19 boroughs employ a manager to administer day-to-day operations versus a mayor. The ordinance was introduced by Assemblywoman Kelly Cooper, and Assemblyman Hal Smalley. The mayor would serve as chair of the assembly, still be able to participate in assembly discussions, may vote on assembly actions in the case of a tie, and may veto assembly actions, according to the ordinance.
