Olympian Kemoy Campbell regains consciousness … Family establishes GoFundMe account

first_imgAgent Ray Flynn has confirmed to The Gleaner that Jamaican distance runner Kemoy Campbell is conscious and has been talking.  Campbell had been sedated by doctors at the New York Presbyterian/ Columbia University Hospital after he collapsed, while competing in the 3000m event at Saturday’s Millrose Games at The Armory in New York.  The Olympian had to be treated and revived track side by medical and emergency personal and later rushed to the nearby hospital, where he has since been admitted in the Intensive Care Unit on assisted breathing.  Flynn told The Gleaner that as of Tuesday morning, Campbell is in stable condition and encouraged everyone to continue to keep him in their thoughts and prayers. “As of this morning, Kemoy is in stable condition in the ICU at New York Presbyterian/ Columbia University Hospital. Thank you to everyone for your continued support. Kemoy is awake and talking. Please continue to keep him in your thoughts and prayers,” Flynn shared. He noted that the athlete’s family was extremely grateful for the prayers and encouragement received and that they have established a GoFundMe account to help with his mounting medical expenses.  “Campbell will continue to be monitored and recover at the hospital for the foreseeable future. In order for Kemoy to continue receiving the best care and to offset mounting medical costs, we are asking for donations to help support him and his family during this challenging time. Any donation made to help Kemoy on his road to recovery is greatly appreciated,” Flynn said.  “Kemoy and his family are very grateful for the overwhelming support and outreach. The Campbell family would also like to express their gratitude for the team of doctors at New York Presbyterian/ Columbia University Hospital and the quick response of The Armory’s on-site medical professionals and doctors who assisted Kemoy and for the outpouring of support from the track and field community,” Fynn continued.

Investigators seeking suspect in 13 ‘blue sweater’ robbieres

first_imgInvestigators are asking for the public’s help in finding a man suspected of committing 13 armed robberies in Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties. Sheriff’s Deputy Anthony Moore said the robberies have occurred since October at different retail stores in many cities including Covina, Whittier, Montebello and San Dimas. He said they are being called the “blue sweater” robberies because the suspect wore a black and blue striped sweater. Moore saud the suspect pretended to buy something and when the cashiers went to open the registers he pulled out a handgun and demanded cash. The suspect is described as a heavy-set man in his early 30s, between 6 foot and 6- foot-3 inches tall and weighing 230 to 300 pounds. He is believed to be either white or Hispanic, has receding thin brown hair, brown eyes and possibly has a thin mustache and a goatee. 165Let’s talk business.Catch up on the business news closest to you with our daily newsletter.

Concerned Citizens for Caribou Recovery sends letter to Government regarding socio-economic impact

first_imgThe letter to the Government can be found on the Concerned Citizens for Caribou Recovery Facebook page. FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Concerned Citizens for Caribou Recovery has sent a letter to the Provincial Government concerning the importance of completing a socio-economic impact assessment on the Caribou Recovery Process.In the letter, the CCCR says they are in full agreement with the Peace River Regional District that a socio-economic impact should be completed before the draft agreements are finalized.According to CCCR, the business community that relies on the proposed areas will be affected by the Section 11 and Partnership Agreement.- Advertisement -Kathleen Connolly, Group member and Executive Director of the Dawson Creek Chamber of Commerce, spoke at the Draft Agreement Meeting in Fort St. John asking the Government to extend the deadline and that an independent assessment should be completed before any agreements are finalized.“The socio-economic impacts to our region could potentially be devasting. The Provincial Government has not started a socio-economic impact assessment for any part of our region today. So what we’re asking in our letter is that Government extend the amount of time that Government and citizens can respond to these concerns, that the Regional District can hire legal counsel if they require it, that they can do an independent socio-economic assessment that looks at yours and compare that data and make decisions and mitigations that will actually allow our communities to be able to respond in a manner that will allow them to mitigate for what is going to happen to industry, not only forestry but mining and the small businesses that will be impacted by it.”The CCCR says they support the Regional Districts in any measures that they choose to implement leading up to the required assessments being completed.Advertisementlast_img read more

Exclusive – Former Liverpool boss backs Balotelli to shine

first_imgFormer Liverpool boss Roy Evans has backed new signing Mario Balotelli to start finding form soon and believes the Italian will fare better once Daniel Sturridge returns from injury.The Italian striker netted his first goal for the Reds in their 2-1 win over Ludogorets in the Champions League on Tuesday night, but it masked an average display from the £16million signing. Balotelli has failed to set Anfield alight in his three appearances to date, only one of which has been in tandem with Sturridge – the comfortable 3-0 win over Tottenham – on the 22-year-old’s debut.And Evans believes once the England star returns from injury in the next couple of weeks, the new signing will find his feet quicker.“Balotelli has still got a fair amount to prove,” the ex-Reds manager told Drivetime.“I think he probably misses the movement of Daniel Sturridge. He will make more spaces for Balotelli to get into. It’s very easy to be critical in the first two or three games, it takes a while.“Maybe at this stage he’s started to come a little too deep, but if he gets in the box he’s got that strength and ability to stick them in the back of the net.“He just needs to be a little bit more positive and maybe the team needs to be a bit more positive around him because the last two games have been poor in quality.“Daniel Sturridge has got great movement, he moves in and around different places. He’s not always up front. He likes to get down the flanks, he likes to come deep. And I think maybe if he plays with Balotelli they will be a good pair. His movement is vital to make space for Balotelli and for [Raheem] Sterling.”last_img read more

Voters on Hill lose out again?

first_imgDISTRICTS: Political boundaries provide residents with little clout and chances are fading for fairer 2011 plan. By Gene Maddaus STAFF WRITER The latest attempt to change the way California draws its political boundaries stalled in Sacramento this week, further diminishing the chances that the next redistricting in 2011 will be handled differently from the last one in 2001. That was disappointing news to officials on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, which offers one of the starkest examples of what can happen under a partisan redistricting plan. The Peninsula’s congressman lives 30 miles down the coast in Huntington Beach. Its state senator lives 20 miles away in Inglewood. Both are in very safe seats, robbing The Hill of any influence over elections and any real political clout. “The people of the Palos Verdes Peninsula have been shafted for so many years on this issue,” said Rolling Hills Estates Councilman Frank Zerunyan. “Enough is enough.” Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has made reforming the redistricting process a priority of his administration. He has threatened to oppose a Feb. 5 ballot measure that would extend term limits unless a redistricting reform measure is also on the ballot. But this week the Legislature adjourned without taking up redistricting, postponing any discussion of the issue until next year. “There was no will to do redistricting by the leadership,” said Sen. Alan Lowenthal, D-Long Beach, who has spearheaded several redistricting reform measures. “We’re getting closer and closer to the next decade. I don’t think you can count on the Legislature. The political parties really don’t want to give up the power they have to protect political incumbents.” The current boundary lines were drawn in 2001 by Michael Berman, a veteran Democratic consultant who lives and breathes redistricting. Working on a $1.36million contract from the state Senate, Berman crafted districts that would lock in a Democratic advantage in the Senate and congressional delegations. Congressional Democrats each paid Berman $20,000 to protect their seats. Republican incumbents supported the Berman plan because their districts were protected as well. It has held up remarkably well – in three elections, only one congressional seat has switched parties. (Another consultant drew the Assembly map for the Democratic Assembly leadership, and it is generally regarded as being less gerrymandered.) On the Palos Verdes Peninsula, the effects were readily apparent. In Congress, the Peninsula had been in a swing district. Jane Harman eked out a 1 percent victory over Republican incumbent Steve Kuykendall in 2000. Berman removed The Hill from Harman’s district – making hers a safe Democratic seat – and linked it up to Dana Rohrabacher’s solidly Republican seat in Orange County. “If Dana Rohrabacher were to try to walk his district, he would have to turn sideways and shimmy through Long Beach,” said Rancho Palos Verdes Mayor Tom Long. “A bunch of chimpanzees with crayons could draw better districts than we have now.” The new lines made it impossible for Kuykendall to try to win his seat back in 2002. His choices were to challenge Rohrabacher in a primary – as a moderate, he would stand little chance against an entrenched Orange County conservative – or take on Harman in a heavily Democratic district that no longer included his house. “I would have probably taken a crack at it,” Kuykendall said. “But after reapportionment it didn’t make any sense.” The Hill’s Senate seat had also been competitive. Moderate Democrat Betty Karnette had beaten a Republican by 3 percentage points in 1996. Before that, the district belonged to moderate Republican Bob Beverly, who faced close races in his final two campaigns. With reapportionment, the conservative Peninsula found itself drawn into an overwhelmingly Democratic district based in Inglewood, Compton and Watts and designed to elect a black senator. Again, The Hill was connected by a ribbon through Long Beach – in places as narrow as a single street – to the bulk of the district. The result has been predictable. As far as local councilmen are aware, Sen. Ed Vincent has not visited The Hill since it was drawn into his district six years ago. “We’ve invited him,” Long said. “He and his office have not been very much in touch with our part of the Peninsula.” Asked if he had any relationship at all with Vincent, Long said, “No.” (Vincent, who has been ill, did not return calls seeking comment, nor did his staff.) Rohrabacher has at least been to events on The Hill since it was spliced into his district, but he, too, isn’t around very much. “The Hill people feel he doesn’t hear them and he’s not very interested in them,” Karnette said. “People in Palos Verdes would feel much better if they were with somebody from the South Bay area. That’s what they want. They don’t want somebody from Orange County.” Rohrabacher said that while he spends more time in Orange County and Long Beach than he does on The Hill, due to the distance, he does reflect the Peninsula’s political views. “People don’t elect members of the House of Representatives to go to their districts and hold their hands and go to social events,” Rohrabacher said. “They elect someone to go to Washington, D.C., and represent them in Washington.” As for the Assembly, the district was left largely unchanged in 2001. Out of 80 Assembly seats statewide, it was one of five that was considered competitive. But even there, demographic changes in Long Beach have made Republicans on The Hill increasingly irrelevant over the last decade. In the 1990s, Democrats held a mere five-point registration edge. As a result, the Assembly seat changed parties three times during the decade, usually by razor-thin margins. The Democrats’ advantage has swelled since then to a nine-point edge – due largely to an influx of Democrats in Long Beach – and the seat has become increasingly out of reach to Republicans. Kuykendall mounted a bid for the seat in 2004, but lost to Karnette by eight points. Karnette, who lives in Long Beach, will be termed out next year. So far no major Republican has announced for the race. In the last few years, an area that used to be contested and catered to has had to get used to being marginalized and ignored. Rancho Palos Verdes Councilman Steve Wolowicz blamed the redistricting for low voter turnout and reduced civic engagement on local issues. Long suggested that a lack of representation might explain why his city has received only $80,000 in emergency response funding since the Sept. 11 attacks. “We are right next to the ports and I think they are high-risk areas,” he said. Next year’s Senate race is likely to be a spirited contest between four seasoned office-holders. But Peninsula voters will be bystanders. “It’s very possible for the 25th Senate District to be decided without any of the candidates stepping foot on The Hill,” Wolowicz said. Absent a crystal ball, it is hard to foresee what will happen in 2011. If a Democrat wins the governorship in 2010, the party would again have a free hand to draw the lines as it pleases. If a Republican wins, a stalemate would probably throw the job of redistricting to the California Supreme Court, which appointed special masters to draw the boundaries in the 1970s and the 1990s. Paul McKaskle, who served as chief counsel to the special masters in both cases, said that example should serve as a model for reform. “They were concerned about the law,” McKaskle said. “They didn’t know much about politics. They were lawyers, and they approached it from a legal standpoint.” The law requires equal populations in each district, encourages keeping cities and counties whole, and forbids splitting up minority groups in a way that would dilute minority influence. “It was done without regard to party,” McKaskle said. “And there were – and not because the masters made any particular effort – a number of competitive seats.” The Assembly even switched over to the Republicans in 1994, before going back to the Democrats in the next cycle. McKaskle supports giving the job to an independent commission, but cautions that such a body would not be able to create a lot of competitive seats. Most areas are mostly Republican or Democrat. Creating a lot of swing seats would take more contortions than Berman performed in 2001. And as for the Palos Verdes Peninsula, it is not big enough to be guaranteed influence, no matter how the lines are drawn. It has only about 70,000 residents – one-tenth of a congressional district, one-thirteenth of a Senate district. The Republican Peninsula would probably be represented by Democrats even if Democratic consultants didn’t draw the lines. But at least they might have to work for it. “Would everyone get everything they want? No,” Lowenthal said. “You can’t get competitiveness in every district because of housing patterns. But you will get more competitiveness by being fair.” gene.maddaus@dailybreeze.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Fantasy Premier League: The 15 best value stars for your team

first_img 15 5. Jack Butland (Stoke) – Value rating = 20.9 – An outrageous £4.5m pick at the start of the year has blossomed into £5.3m point-winning machine. Nine clean sheets and 12 bonus points make him one of the best goalkeepers around. He’s got an assist to his name, too! Classic Stoke. 15 15 15 15 6. Petr Cech (Arsenal) – Value rating = 20.8 – Undervalued by the Fantasy Premier League price-setters at the start of the season, the Arsenal goalkeeper has been outstanding. His 12 clean sheets and 12 bonus points make him a great purchase at £5.9m. 15 15 2. Odion Igalho (Watford) – Value rating = 23.7 – The Nigerian goalmachine has been one of the surprise stars of the season. A natural finisher, he’s hit 15 goals this season, while assists and a stunning 25 bonus points have enhanced his value. He’s still available for just £6.3m. 1. Riyad Mahrez (Leicester City) – Value rating = 25.8 – It was probably obvious but the Algerian star, and one of the players of the year, has been a point winner all season. He’s amassed 32 bonus points on top of those accrued by scoring goals and making them too. He started the season worth £5.5m and is now up to £7.1m. 15 8. Charlie Daniels (Bournemouth) – Value rating = 20 – Perhaps a shock player on this list, the ex-Tottenham man is a penalty taking defender capable of grabbing an assist with his dangerous crossing, but most importantly Daniels gets bonus points with 14 coming his way this season. Not bad considering his price is £4.6m and only 4.6 per cent of managers have picked him. 3. Heurelho Gomes (Watford) – Value rating = 22.5 – Once a laughing stock at Tottenham, the Brazilian has rebuilt his reputation at Watford. He’s always making saves giving him an extra point a game than most other players. He’s just £4.8m and worth considering as an alternative if you and your rivals have the same shot-stopper. 15 15 12= Hugo Lloris (Tottenham) – Value rating = 18.7 – Spurs’ excellent defending has surprised many this season and it’s benefited those who took a risk on the Frenchman. At £5.2m Lloris is good value for money with nine clean sheets to his name. 4. Jamie Vardy (Leicester City) – Value rating = 21.4 – When it comes to the Fantasy Premier League it’s no Vardy, no party! 15 15 9. Kasper Schmeichel (Leicester City) – Value rating = 19.8 – Unsurprisingly, the Danish goalkeeper makes the top ten having kept eight clean sheets. He also is good for an extra point thanks to the amount of saves he makes. 15 With 13 Premier League games to go before the season ends, the race for Fantasy Premier League titles are just as exciting as the real thing (almost).At this point in time it’s crucial to have the right men for the job and a wildcard is pretty handy, too, and this could be an opportune time to freshen up your squad unless you’ve already cashed in your golden ticket.Stars like Sergio Aguero, Alexis Sanchez, Harry Kane, Mesut Ozil and Raheem Sterling might form the core of your team but you also need some cheaper players to keep your team’s price low.So who are the best value stars in the Fantasy Premier League? talkSPORT takes a look.Click the right arrow about to find out which players provide the best value for money…*Fantasy Premier League’s value rating is calculated by dividing points won by the player’s current price 12= Jose Fonte (Southampton) – Value rating = 18.7 – Solid as a rock, Fonte has helped the Saints keep five clean sheets in five games, making him one of the best value stars around. Capable of a goal too, he could be a handy player to pick at £5.3m. 15 10. Troy Deeney (Watford) – Value rating = 19.8 – The Hornets captain has scored six goals and made eight assists this season. At £5.2m he represents superb value and has been selected by just 4 per cent of managers. He’s a wildcard, for sure. 14. Craig Cathcart (Watford) – Value rating = 18.3 – Cathcart has been a key part of the Hornets’ defence during their outstanding performances this season. He’s worth a punt at £4.6m, especially given the fact Watford have kept nine clean sheets and only 2.6 per cent of teams have selected him. 11. Dele Alli (Tottenham) – Value rating = 19.2 – This starlet needs no introduction, as Alli has been a key member of Tottenham’s title bid and is a snip at £5.9m. 15 15. Scott Dann (Crystal Palace) – Value rating = 18.1 – Who are the best value stars in the Fantasy Premier League? Value ratings are calculated by dividing points won by the player’s current price and here, talkSPORT looks at the best purchases beginning with Eagles defender Dann. He might not be recording many clean sheets at the moment but he’s scored five goals and registered an assist so far this campaign. You can pick him up for £5.8m. 7. Robert Huth (Leicester City) – Value rating = 20.7 – Manchester City couldn’t handle the Huth last weekend and the towering German is racking up the points in the Fantasy Premier League too. His recent goalscoring form has aided his impressive tally, which has benefitted from the Foxes’ clean sheets. last_img read more

Annoying words from ’05 lexicon

first_imgDETROIT – No up-or-down vote necessary: Everyone from persons of interest to first-time callers will agree that 2005 offered more than its share of irritating words and phrases. Lake Superior State University on Saturday released its 2006 “List of Words and Phrases Banished from the Queen’s English for Mis-Use, Over-Use and General Uselessness.” But please, don’t call it “breaking news.” That and 16 other linguistic nuisances were selected by a university committee from among almost 2,000 nominations. The small academic outpost in the Upper Peninsula community of Sault Ste. Marie has been compiling the banned-words list since 1976 to attract publicity – and certainly not to offer anyone “talking points.” The committee also targeted such gems as “hunker down,” which it noted is used by news media “in reports about everything from politics to hurricanes.” “If they don’t do anything, we don’t need their acronym,” wrote Josh Hamilton, of Tucson, Ariz. The school has banned nearly 800 words over the years, including “metrosexual” (2004), “chad” (2001), “baby boomers” (1989) and “detente” (1976). 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
