Jokic’s big night helps Nuggets hold off Mavericks

first_img“But I’m not going to say it’s a complete waste — we got a win. I’m proud of our guys for having enough fortitude down the stretch to get the win.”Harris finished with 25 points and Will Barton added 22 for the Nuggets, who won for just the second time in six games.Trying to address the issue of slow starts, Malone tweaked the starting lineup by inserting Barton and sending Mason Plumlee to the bench. The change worked as Denver led at halftime. That’s significant because it halted a streak of seven straight games in which the Nuggets trailed at intermission.Denver made protecting the paint a point of emphasis in this contest. When the Mavericks beat the Nuggets 122-105 on Dec. 4, they dominated points in the paint with 64. That figure comes with a caveat — Jokic was sidelined with an ankle sprain.This time, Dallas had 42.Harris and Jokic combined to score Denver’s opening 22 points, before Plumlee got in the scoring act with a free throw late in the first quarter.TIP-INSMavericks: J.J.

Jamal (Murray) is 20. That’s not an excuse, he’s 20 years old,” Malone said. “We have a lot of young players and we have to help them get through these tough times.”SPORADIC JOKICMalone isn’t worried about Jokic’s up-and-down performances. All part of his learning curve.“This is his third year in the NBA. He was a second-round pick. Now all of a sudden people want him to be Superman,” Malone said. “Very few players in NBA history come in their first, second and third year and put a franchise on their back.

Reconnecting Buutuo

first_imgWho can ever forget Buutuo? It is the Nimba town on the border with the Ivory Coast which Charles Taylor and his National Patriotic Front of Liberia (NPFL) entered on December 24, 1989 to fire the first shots of their invasion that ignited the 14-year Liberian civil war.That invasion led to the overthrow and execution of President Samuel K. Doe and scores of his closest associates, mostly from his Krahn ethnic group. Buutuo is also remembered because in 2011 the brave and daring President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, against the advice of her own personal security, waded through water to enter with her official vehicle. It was in fulfillment of her promise to the people ofBuutuo that she would visit them before the end of her first term.The grateful Buutuo people did not forget that first visit by a sitting Liberian President to their town. They and the Nimba people, just as they had done in 2006, gave the first term candidate Sirleaf their resounding endorsement for a second term.But what did they get in return? Is there anything tangible in their town, one of Nimba’s most remote, that they can point to in terms of development—a tangible reward for their historic endorsement of her to win two presidential terms?Our former Nimba Correspondent, now Assistant Editor C.Y. Kwanue, himself a native of Buutuo, confessed that no, there is not much to show.Not even the road leading into the town, which is now riddled with even bigger puddles of water than Ellen braved to enter Buutuo on September 26, 2011.In his story on Tuesday, Editor Kwanue quoted many, including Old Lady Annie Quelleh, who said that GOL had “totally neglected Buutuo.” We all can imagine and know the great hardship any town, in this case Buutuo, suffers when deep puddles prohibit anything or anyone from entering or leaving there. No way to take pregnant women or other patients to the nearest clinic, which is so many miles away; no way for either trucks or pick-ups (taxis are completely out of the question) to take Buutuo’s farm produce to the market. The Buutuo people live on their cocoa production. Without roads, they sell nothing, compounding the hardship. There is also no way to bring in urgently needed food items, nor medicines to the lone clinic in the town of 40,000 people; no way for textbooks and other school materials from the Education Ministry to reach Buutuo’s schools; no way for businesspeople to travel to or from Buutuo to do business.We are not talking of people like C.Y. Kwanue, who lives and works in greater Monrovia and has to travel to Buutuo to see his aging relatives there. We are talking about issues that are much more serious than vacationing or visitations—although these, too, could be critical for aging or sick relations. What kind of life is that, to exist in a place that is impossible to reach? When we talk about abject poverty and deprivation, that is it right there.We know of five persons who can make an immediate difference in Buutuo right now to bring urgently needed relief to its people. The first is President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf. She can order the second person, Public Works Minister Gyude Moore to deploy his engineers and yellow machines to go fix the road leading into Buutuo.The third person needed to rescue Buutuo is the politically powerful Nimba Senator Prince Y. Johnson. Everyone, including Ellen, knows that when Prince Johnson speaks, Nimba speaks! We know of no Liberian politician that can afford to ignore a call from Senator Prince Johnson.The fourth person relevant to this Buutuo conundrum (challenge, problem) is Defense Minister Brownie Samukai, himself with Nimba roots—his mom, Naankouh, is from Buutuo, and he speaks the languages, too, in addition to his paternal Kissi. Minister Samukai could easily engage his Engineering Battalion to go to Buutuo and help fix that road.The fifth person that can help toward making Buutuo accessible is Finance Minister Boima Kamara, who must come up with the money needed to empower Public Works and the Defense Engineering Battalion to come forward and fix the Buutuo road.Yes, Christmas and New Year are over, but the people of Buutuo remain critically trapped. All of us, but most especially the government, must come forward and DO something to bring speedy and urgent relief to Buutuo and our people who live there.

Huskies respond well to high energy practice

I think that’s how our team needs to be. You have to have a short term memory in sport. Sometimes things happen and that’s the way it is but the guys that can shake it off and get back in there and fight another day are the ones that we’re looking for,” he explained.The Huskies are still working to shore up their play in their own zone and get use to playing within their system before their home opener next Friday.- Advertisement -“We’re still working on our d-zone coverage. That needs to get a lot better as we’re allowing too many shots and too many goals. That’s not our identity; it never has been here. We’re not a run and gun team; we don’t want to run and gun. We want to play good, solid defence and take care of our opportunities when they unfold in front of us,” Alexander said.The home opener for the Huskies will be on October 17 against the Fairview Flyers. After that their next tilt will be on the road against the Beaverlodge Blades on October 22.last_img read more

‘Good luck to him!’ – Wenger says he RESPECTS Vardy’s decision to snub Arsenal

first_img Jamie Vardy in action for Leicester City 1 Arsene Wenger says he fully respects Jamie Vardy’s decision to remain with Leicester.Arsenal met the £20m release clause in the striker’s contract earlier this month and had been hopeful of luring him to the Emirates.But Vardy, whose 24 goals helped fire the Foxes to a stunning Premier League title triumph last season, has opted to reject their interest and extend his stay with the champions.Wenger will now have to look elsewhere for a new striker, but the Gunners boss insists he is not too disappointed to miss out on the 29-year-old.And he has wished the England international – who was playing non-league football only four years ago – the best of luck for the future.“I think Leicester have made a statement and Vardy will stay. We were on the case and interested, but not more than that,” the Frenchman told beIN Sports.“He has decided to stay at Leicester and good luck to him.“He came late to the game and in fairness Leicester bought him from Fleetwood and he has been successful. He is 29 and he has chosen to stay at Leicester. You have to respect that.”last_img read more

WWII airmen remains found

first_imgMOJAVE – Bones of two World War II airmen who died in a 1944 bomber crash will be flown to Hawaii for identification after 62 years lying forgotten in the Mojave Desert. A military POW-MIA investigation team spent a month excavating among the sagebrush and creosote bushes about 1 1/2 miles west of Mojave, where the shallow craters and bits of broken airplane parts left by the four-engine B-24 bomber’s impact were disguised by regrown vegetation and years of trash dumping. “We do have the remains of at least two individuals,” Kern County Deputy Coroner Kelly Cowan said. “We also have dog tags and other personal items and coins.” The Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command team will fly the remains back to their headquarters in Hawaii for identification, if necessary using mitochondrial DNA obtained by tracking down maternal relatives, command spokeswoman Maj. Rumi Nielson-Green said. She said she did not know if the Army has located relatives. The wreckage and remains in the desert west of Mojave were found last summer through the work of amateur “wreck chasers,” who scour the wilderness for old crash sites. Don R. Jordan, who operates a Web site about airplane wrecks in the mountains and deserts of California and has co-written a book about them, discovered the B-24’s crash site after a search that began in 2001. Through old records, Jordan learned the bomber had left March Field in Riverside County on a training flight to and from Redding, in Northern California. At about 8:15 a.m. April 9, 1944, Mojave townsfolk and Marines at the Mojave Marine Corps Air Station saw the bomber spin out of a cloud and smash into the ground in a giant explosion. The crash was blamed on pilot error. That the wreck site still contained remains of crew members was discovered when Jordan and another wreck chaser, David Schurhammer, returned at the request of the niece of the plane’s radio operator. She wanted a piece of radio equipment and sand from the crash site to sprinkle on the grave of Sgt. Michael Rudich, whose body had been buried in 1944 in Charleston, S.C. Jordan, a California City resident, said he assumes other crash sites he has found and written about since the mid-1970s also contain remains, if only because of the difficulty of collecting everything after a violent crash. “A crash that horrendous, you aren’t going to find everybody; you aren’t going to get everybody,” Jordan said. “I don’t go out there to dig. I consider myself a storyteller.” Kern County coroner officials found more bones during an examination last August, and in May the military search team came out for what turned into a monthlong operation. In the meantime, somebody had dug into the site looking for artifacts. The military team excavated an area about 40 feet by 30 feet, digging up to three feet deep, Cowan said. Most of the bones were found about two feet deep in the crater left by the nose, but some were as much as 15 feet away. Because the Mojave case involved men who were accounted for, it was not a typical investigation for the POW-MIA command, which has 425 personnel tasked with finding and identifying 88,000 military personnel missing from World War II onward. The unit operates the world’s largest forensic anthropological laboratory. This case was also unusual because it involved recovering bodies in the United States, though there have been other similar recent incidents. Most notable was the discovery last October on a Kings Canyon National Park glacier of the frozen body of an aviation cadet killed in a 1942 crash. Last fall, the unit identified a body found in the Cascades Mountains in Washington as that of a pilot whose P-38 fighter plane disappeared in 1942 and recovered the remains of two Navy aviators who had been buried in 1945 near the remote crash site of their Dauntless dive bomber. During World War II, it was not uncommon for airmen to be buried at crash sites if they were in locations from which in the days before helicopters it would be difficult to carry out the bodies. “It is not a regular occurrence,” Nielson-Green said of discoveries in the United States. “In the last year it’s happened more frequently than we had in the last 10 years.” chuck.bostwick@dailynews.com (661) 267-5742160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Donald Orth and gunner Sgt. William Mahan, Cowan said, left behind when the bodies of their eight crewmates were removed from the wreckage of the bomber that spiraled into the desert and exploded April 9, 1944. Why Orth’s and Mahan’s remains were left isn’t known, but they were riding in the big plane’s nose, which presumably was buried the deepest by the impact. Part of the men’s remains were apparently collected and returned to their families in 1944, Nielson-Green said. Kern County issued death certificates for Orth and Mahan back in 1944. Cowan said she assumes authorities were pressed for time to recover bodies, as inexperienced crews crashed hundreds of planes in and around the Antelope Valley while training for combat. “The only thing I can guess is we were at war and these things were crashing right and left,” Cowan said. last_img read more

But for those of us who were, we needn’t have worried as Donegal came out in the second half to dominate.Frank McGlynn’s brilliantly take 50th-minute goal soon settled nervs and extended their lead to six points.Down were now struggling to keep up with the fitter and more determined Donegal side, with players refusing to be intimidated by some unsavoury Down behaviour off the ball.Colm McFadden was immense – top-scoring with six points, all of them lovely finishes. Man of the match though was Mark McHugh who had a fantastic game for Donegal today.The strong-running McGlynn also had a superb game for the holders.The win puts Donegal in the All-Ireland quarter-finals while Down must regroup for next weekend’s four-round qualifier against Tipperary.The result probably flattered Donegal in the end – a fact acknowledged by captain Michael Murphy.DONEGAL 2-18 [McLoone 1-0, McGlynn 1-0, Bradley 0-1, McBrearty 0-1, Declan Walsh 0-2, David Walsh 0-1, McFadden 0-6, Murphy 0-1, McHugh 0-2, McElhinney 0-2, Bradley 0-1, McLaughlin 0-1]DOWN 0-13[Doyle 0-4, O’Hare 0-2, Rogers 0-1, McKernan 0-1, Laverty 0-1, McCartan 0-1, Hughes 0-1, Maginn 0-1, Brannigan 0-1]Donegal: P Durcan, P McGrath, N McGee, F McGlynn, Declan Walsh, K Lacey, A Thompson, R Bradley, R Kavanagh, David Walsh, L McLoone, M McHugh, P McBrearty, M Murphy, C McFadden.Subs: M McElhinney for David Walsh, C Toye for McLoone, D McLaughlin for Bradley Down: B McVeigh, D McCartan, D Gordon, D O’Hagan, A Brannigan, B McArdle, A Carr, A Rogers, K King, D O’Hare, K McKernan, L Doyle, M Poland, B Coulter, C Laverty.Subs: E McCartan for Coulter, C Maginn for Carr, D Hughes for O’Hare, Coulter for McKernanReferee: J McQuillan (Cavan)HOW DONEGAL SAW OFF DOWN IN CLONES DECIDER was last modified: July 22nd, 2012 by BrendaShare 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)last_img read more
