Man City captain hails club’s Champions League qualification

first_img The club have not had the best form in the group stages in previous years, but this time they have qualified with two games to spare 1 Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany breathed a sigh of relief as his side ‘finally’ stepped up to the plate in Europe.Two goals in the opening 11 minutes gave Manuel Pellegrini’s side the perfect platform to see out a vital 3-1 victory in Sevilla, with strikes from Raheem Sterling, Fernando and Wilfried Bony put them to the top of Group D, qualifying for the next stage with two games to spare.While progressing from the group stage has been a major hurdle for City in the past, last season they made it through only to face Barcelona in the first knock-out stage and duly made a swift exit.With that in mind, Kompany is keen for them to build on their progress so far and top the group in the hope of an easier draw.“The first feeling is ‘Finally’,” he said on BT Sport 2 as City could enjoy a truly special performance in Europe.“It’s a difficult group and for us to qualify with two games to go is an incredible achievement.“We need to go on. It would be a first for us to finish first in our group and that’s important because we have been unlucky in the draws before.”They are now one point ahead of group rivals Juventus, who drew at Borussia Monchengladbach in the other Group D contest. Manager Manuel Pellegrini changed his team’s shape by leaving out De Bruyne in order to feature Fernando, Fernandinho and Toure together in midfield, and enjoyed the results after revealing he had not been impressed with some of City’s recent displays.Pellegrini said: “I’m happy with the way we played, we scored three goals, missed three of four clear chances to score and we defended well.“I was not happy with the way we were playing in the previous games, so I’m happy with our form in this game.“The three midfielders – Yaya Toure, Fernandinho and Fernando – played well, pressed higher and our attack was really prepared. We played with one touch and moved into space, that was the reason we created so many chances.”last_img read more

‘Mirallas unhappy’ rumours untrue, insists Everton boss Roberto Martinez

first_img Everton forward 1 Everton manager Roberto Martinez has dismissed suggestions Belgian forward Kevin Mirallas is unhappy at Goodison Park.The 28-year-old has not started a Premier League game for the Toffees since the opening-weekend draw with Watford, and reports this week hinted he could look elsewhere for more regular football in order to boost his quest to make Belgium’sEuro 2016 squad.Mirallas moved to Merseyside in 2012 and in the summer he signed a new contract to keep him at the club until 2018 having scored 11 times last year.Martinez insists the forward remains an integral part of his plans and predicts he will have a big impact for Everton in the coming months.“It couldn’t be further from the truth,” Martinez replied when quizzed about the rumours.“Kevin has been a very, very important player while I’ve been at the football club. The start of this season has been challenging for him because he had a couple of niggles then he had the sending-off so wasn’t available for three games. But the way that he’s been working in training has been very impressive.“He’s improved as a footballer and it’s important for us that Kevin is fresher now going into the second half of the season and we’ll get the benefit from that.“Kevin Mirallas is a very, very important player for Everton – he knows that. What he needs now is to get playing time because the start of the season has been frustrating for him.”Martinez also stressed that keeping Mirallas and his team-mates together will be his main mission when January comes around.The form of this weekend’s opponents West Ham, along with Leicester and Southampton, has made the race for Europe even more competitive but Martinez will avoid the temptation to make any major changes in the transfer window.“We’ve got such a strong squad – the focus for us is to see how good we can be with the squad we have now,” he added.“We have enough time in the summer to see if we can bring players into the football club. All we want is to be as good as we can with the players we have, that I’m delighted with.“It will be very important for us to make sure the window that is going to open in the winter is to just give a bit more normality, to make sure the squad gets reaffirmed, looking at the younger groups more than the first-team level to make sure that we get a clear 10-month competition out of this squad.“It will be the summer when we reassess where we are and where we should go. I wouldn’t look at the winter as a moment to make significant changes.”last_img read more

Fourth blaze erupts in Santa Clarita

first_imgSANTA CLARITA – Firefighters battling three major wildfires in the Santa Clarita Valley had to deal with a fourth blaze that erupted today, but it was quickly doused with no damages or structures threatened. The so-called Meadow Ridge Fire was reported about 4 a.m. near San Fernando Road and Meadow Ridge Drive, the Los Angeles County Fire Department reported. Flames from the new fire scorched about 10 acres, but no structures were threatened and no one was hurt, authorities said.

Supporters of genocide bill seek to delay vote

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.“The Armenian community is in no way discouraged,” Papazian said. “Armenians are a resilient people.” The resolution at one time had a record number of backers. Support eroded rapidly, however, after a key committee approved it last month. With Pelosi supporting the bill, its arrival on the House floor became, for the first time in decades, a likely scenario. Turkey recalled its ambassador in protest, and threatened to block vital supply routes to Iraq if the bill passed. About 70 percent of air cargo headed to Iraq goes through Turkey. Meanwhile, tensions raged between the U.S. and Turkey over northern Iraq, where Kurdish insurgents had staged several attacks on Turkish troops. A resolution declaring the massacres of Armenians by Ottoman Turks a genocide will not be put to a House vote this year after an international furor forced the bill’s Southern California supporters to seek a delay. In a letter Thursday to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the bill’s lead sponsor Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Pasadena, asked her to postpone a vote, possibly until 2008. “We want to make sure that when we take up the resolution that we have the votes to succeed,” Schiff said. “I think we will. I think it’s only a question of timing.” Vicken Papazian, spokesman for the Armenian National Committee in Glendale, said he respects the lawmakers’ strategy decisions and remains confident it will come to a vote. Turkey had held back from invading in response to appeals from the Bush administration. But last week the Turkish parliament overwhelmingly granted the government permission to invade. “It’s pretty clear that they stumbled into a hornet’s nest greater than Adam Schiff or Nancy Pelosi probably ever anticipated,” said congressional scholar Norman Ornstein. “Clearly the support was slipping away,” added Bulent Aliriza, director of the Turkey Project at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington, D.C., think tank. But, he added, “I don’t think the issue is going to go away.” Schiff said he doesn’t think it will either. He contended the measure is likely to regain support once the immediate crisis in Northern Iraq is under control. Both he and Papazian dismissed the possibility that Congress will grow weary of the issue and the battles it inevitably provokes between lawmakers and the administration. “Genocide never loses its relevancy,” Papazian said. The resolution declares that 1.5 million Armenians were killed, forcefully deported and displaced between 1915 and 1923 in a systematic genocide. Turks acknowledge committing atrocities against Armenians, but object to the word “genocide.” They say Armenians were killed when they joined forces with French and Russians to attack Turks and attempt to take control of Ottoman lands. More than 20 other countries have recognized the massacres of Armenians as genocide. Meanwhile, Republicans who in past years blocked consideration of the resolution, on Thursday ridiculed Pelosi for agreeing to delay it. lisa.friedman@langnews.com (202) 662-8731 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Check out these local haunts to scare up some fun

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.The holiday for centuries has had ghostly implications, with the night being prime time for wandering spirits to make themselves known. While some fear those spirits, others seem to get a kick out of scaring themselves with the possibilities. “There’s a thrill to going to a haunted house – late at night, while the clouds drift by the low-hanging moon and a dog howls forlornly in the distance,” Tangherlini said. “You go there because you’re being transgressive; you’re breaking the rules … And, of course, the ghosts are breaking the rules, too. They’re supposed to be dead, and yet here they are above the ground.” An Associated Press-Ipsos poll released last week found that 34percent of respondents said believe in ghosts. A smaller but still substantial 23percent say they have actually seen a ghost or believe they have been in one’s presence. Are ghosts real? Are they something to be feared? Here are some places where they’ve been reported. Check them out, then decide for yourself. HOLLYWOOD FOREVER CEMETERYWhere better to find ghosts than a graveyard? Hollywood Forever is the final resting place for stars such as Rudolph Valentino, Mel Blanc, Tyrone Power, Marion Davies, Douglas Fairbanks, director Cecil B. DeMille, murdered gangster Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel and many more celebrities. In 1926, when Valentino – a smoldering silent-screen star – died of peritonitis from a ruptured appendix, an estimated 80,000 weeping, screaming fans jammed the cemetery. Every year thereafter, a woman who came to be called simply The Lady in Black arrived on the anniversary of Valentino’s death to leave two red roses. There were a succession of Ladies in Black, from the daughter of a friend of Valentino’s to a woman who claimed the star was her mother’s unrequited love to actresses who sought publicity. The Glendale & Burbank Paranormal Group maintains the original Lady in Black still visits – a nighttime specter who emerges seemingly from thin air in the dark of night, visits Valentino’s crypt in the East Mausoleum, leaves two red roses, then disappears. “She is never disturbed and walks into the mausoleum at night, every night,” the paranormal group insists on its Web site, paranormal.meetup.com. The group also believes the cemetery’s ghosts include Virginia Rappe, who died of a burst bladder and peritonitis in 1921. Movie comedian Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle was charged with sexually assaulting her, but was acquitted after three trials. Yoga Kantah, chief financial officer for the cemetery, claims there’s nothing supernatural going on. “It’s not haunted,” he insisted, “We never had any ghosts here. The Lady in Black is real. She comes on her own.” Movies are shown weekly during the summer in the darkened cemetery, ending around midnight, and no specters have been reported by viewers, Kantah said. “I work late at night a lot and I’ve never had any bad experience.” Hollywood Forever Cemetery, 6000 Santa Monica Blvd.; (323) 469-1181; www.hollywoodforever.com. LEONIS ADOBE MUSEUMThe first time Diane Ramadan visited Leonis Adobe, she smelled the aroma of flowery perfume near the top of the stairs. She asked her companion what kind of scent she was using, but was told she wasn’t wearing any at all. That was her first contact with Espiritu Leonis, the wife of Miguel Leonis, a respected but ruthless landowner known to neighbors and business associates as El Basquo Grande or The Big Basque. Espiritu, the daughter of a San Fernando Mission Indian, was a widow with a young son when she rented her land to Leonis – the black-sheep son of a rich Spanish family. Miguel Leonis died in 1889 after a fall from a wagon in the Cahuenga Pass, and Espiritu died in 1906. Ramadan said the couple’s spirits still inhabit their two-story adobe. “I was in there two weeks ago and somebody was walking around upstairs,” said Ramadan, who manages the ranch. “But there was nobody upstairs. Maybe it was Miguel Leonis’ footsteps. Some people claim he’s still here. It doesn’t bother any of us, though. It doesn’t seem to be a scary ghost.” In fact, it may have been the ghost of Miguel that saved a volunteer who leaned over a balcony railing and nearly fell as it broke under her weight. “Strong hands pulled her backwards,” Ramadan said. “She always thought it was Miguel Leonis.” There have been seances in the house, and mediums have unfailingly reported that the main haunt is Espiritu Leonis, who died in her upstairs bedroom. Others have claimed to see a woman in a black dress looking out a second-story window. “It’s her house and she wants to make sure it’s taken care of,” Ramadan said. “We know when she’s around. There’s a smell … like jasmine or roses when things are good or she likes you … There’ll be foul smells when she doesn’t.” There are also frequent reports of a mysterious light at the top of the stairs. And visiting schoolchildren have claimed to see a large man, dressed in black and often wearing bandages, lying in bed in the room where Miguel Leonis slept. “He’s never done anything specific to make people afraid,” Ramadan said. “There’s no malevolence involved, just the presence.” Leonis Adobe Museum, 223537 Calabasas Road, Calabasas; 818-222-6511; leonisadobemuseum.org. DRUM BARRACKS CIVIL WAR MUSEUMMuseum Director Susan Ogle has never seen a ghost at what was once the westernmost outpost for Union soldiers, but she knows they’re there. “I’m not seeing them, I’m hearing them,” she said. And, most maddening of all, she smells them – the odor of cigar and pipe smoke often permeates the wooden building when she opens in the morning, striking fear in her heart because of the danger of fire. “I think they do that to drive me crazy,” she said jokingly. “And it does.” Museum workers and volunteers are not the only ones to encounter the ghosts. “Many of our neighbors say that they hear wagons and horses during the nights, coming up and down the streets.” From 1861-71, Camp Drum housed about 7,000 Union soldiers whose job it was to keep the Confederates from moving west from Texas to seize the port at Wilmington. After the war, the camp’s hospital cared for thousands of soldiers and others before it closed. The complex was later used as a high school and then as a rooming house before it was targeted for demolition. Community groups saved the former junior officers’ quarters, which became a museum in 1987, but about 20 others buildings were destroyed. Some of the museum’s ghosts, Ogle believes, may be linked to the presence of an original Gatling gun – the first “machine gun” – used by the Union Army. The gun was donated to Wilmington Cemetery as a monument to Civil War soldiers, but it was stolen in the 1960s. It was found in a nearby dump in 1987 and its authenticity was verified. Drum Barracks Civil War Museum, 1052 Banning Blvd., Wilmington; (310) 548-7509; www.drumbarracks.org. QUEEN MARYThere are said to be more ghosts aboard the Queen Mary, which ferried millions of passengers across the Atlantic during her oceangoing years, than any other Southern California site. There were at least 49 documented deaths aboard the ship, not counting an unknown number of wounded soldiers who died during World War II, while the Queen was transformed into a troop ship dubbed the “Grey Ghost” because of its gray camouflage paint. There have been hundreds, if not thousands, of reports of lights turning on and off, doors opening and closing, items being moved, disembodied figures gliding up and down corridors. “I think the thing that is extraordinary about the Queen Mary is there’s such a concentration of spirits,” said Lovetta Kramer, vice president of marketing and communications for the Queen. For years, there have been reports of a ghostly woman in white in the Queen’s Salon; unseen, giggling children in a forward storage room; glimpses of two women in 1930s-era bathing suits, with the sounds of splashing water and wet footprints on the tile near the tourist-class swimming pool, which has been drained for years. A man and a woman in vintage clothing are seen wandering the corridors, only to disappear abruptly when approached. Even smoke from Winston Churchill’s cigar is sometimes smelled onboard; the British prime minister secretly used the ship as a seagoing headquarters during the war. The largest and most tragic loss of life came on Oct. 2, 1942, when the Queen, sailing in a mandatory wartime zigzag pattern to elude Nazi ships, collided with her escort, the British cruiser HMS Curacao. That ship went down, killing 338 British soldiers and sailors. Many ghost-hunters have left sound equipment in the ship’s bow and recorded pounding noises and sounds of men yelling for help. The Queen, which sailed on her maiden voyage in 1936, was retired from service and purchased by Long Beach in 1967. It opened in 1970 as a seagoing museum and a hotel. But Room B340 – reportedly haunted by a murdered purser – remains closed to occupancy because it’s full of disturbances: Lights and water faucets turn on and off by themselves. Knock on the door, some say, and the door knocks back. Still, the spirits seem benign. “They seem to be just aboard ship, as they were (before their death),” Kramer said, “and they’re just carrying on.” Queen Mary, 1126 Queens Highway, Long Beach; 562-435-3511; www.queenmary.com. STRATHEARN HISTORICAL PARKVisit the original St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church in Simi Valley and you just might see the specter of an elderly Latina, wearing a black lace mantilla, carrying a rosary, weeping near the back of the church, where the baptismal font used to be. Or you might get a glimpse of a man reportedly murdered there many years ago, come back to find his killer. That is, if you believe myriad of Web sites that list the old church among the haunts of Southern California. On the other hand, “I’ve never heard a peep,” said Colleen Janssen, marketing and outreach specialist for the Simi Valley Recreation and Park District, which has included the 1902 church as part of a historical village at Strathearn Park, in the 100 block of Strathearn Place. The Web site theshadowlands.net/places/california2.htm insists that the woman is often seen at night in the now-empty sanctuary and that the scent of her perfume often wafts through the building. People have also reported seeing “a tall stranger” out of the corner of their eye. Whenever either is approached, they vanish, theshadowlands says. Originally located at Pacific and Second streets, the church was moved to its current site in 2002 and is now used for weddings and other social gatherings. “I would think if it moved, whatever (ghost) might have been in the building would have stayed at the original site,” Jensen said. “There are two homes there now.” Strathearn Historical Park, 137 Strathearn Place, Simi Valley; 805-526-6453; www.simihistory.com.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Many years later, the Catholic Church – which honors the departed by celebrating All Souls’ Day on Nov. 2 – sought to do away with the pagan beliefs in favor of Christianity. “The Reformation could not eradicate long-held local beliefs in wandering spirits of the dead,” UCLA professor of folklore Timothy Tangherlini said in an interview. “So they (church officials) did what anybody does when they need to align two seemingly incompatible beliefs: They made a compromise, saying that ghosts were essentially in league with the devil and, through the equation `ghosts equal satan,’ they could then accommodate widespread belief in ghosts.” That led to recognition of Hallow E’en, as it’s called in Ireland, meaning All Hallows Eve, or the night before All Saints’ Day, Nov. 1. last_img

Council receives restitution

first_imgPICO RIVERA – The City Council has collected $14,000 in restitution for money lost during the investigation of former Councilman Carlos Garcia earlier this year. Garcia pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of trying to influence a government decision in July, for getting favorable city treatment last year for food distribution firm BakeMark Inc. Although the city originally sought $50,000 through a request to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, it was repaid only about $14,000. The money came from county funds. “I personally think the city should have got the entire amount,” Mayor Ron Beilke said. “But it’s time to put this behind us.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREStriving toward a more perfect me: Doug McIntyre The $14,000 is just $18 short of what would have been paid to the city by BakeMark without Garcia’s intervention. The company owed $14,018 for unpaid business license fees. The District Attorney’s Office deemed it inappropriate to seek the remaining $36,000 for the city, which included staff hours spent pulling records and testifying before a grand jury and legal fees. Garcia was investigated because he had allegedly encouraged BakeMark, which had done business with his packaging company, to challenge the fees with the city. Garcia pleaded guilty after losing re-election in March 2006. He was ordered to pay a $10,000 fine and a $3,000 penalty, and was restricted from running for office for four years. Garcia said he is on a payment schedule with the city and plans to stay out of politics. center_img “Believe it or not, I’m a good guy,” Garcia said. “My feeling at this point is that they should really focus on the issues that they have and leave me alone.” Beilke said it was important to resolve the issue and move forward. “I actually think this is the most important item on the agenda tonight,” Beilke said at the meeting on Tuesday. “It deals with the corruption of a city official.” Garcia insists that his guilty plea was a matter of practicality after he was not re-elected. Councilman Gregory Salcido spoke at the meeting on Garcia’s behalf, saying he believed that although the former councilman pleaded guilty and should take responsibility for that, he did not intentionally deceive the council. “I would never characterize Carlos as corrupt,” Salcido said. Garcia said he was treated harshly in the situation because of political competition. “The whole issue I think was blown way out of proportion and definitely tilted against me,” Garcia said. airan.scruby@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3029160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

QUEUES SLASHED AT LETTERKENNY POST OFFICE AS UNIONS DISMISS IDEA OF MORE OUTLETS IN TOWN

first_imgAN POST have introduced a new computer system and added extra staff to slash queues at Letterkenny post office.The move follows a petition signed by more than 1,000 people calling for satelite post offices in the town.But the Communications Workers Union says it is convinced any new post offices in the town will only lead to job losses at the head post office on the town’s Main Street. Well-known local union representative Charlie Kelly from Glenswilly said last night the CWU is totally against new postal services in Letterkenny.“The opening of a Sub Office anywhere in the town is privatisation and would lead to the loss of jobs at the Head Post Office on Main Street,” he said.He added the long queues experienced recently as a result of increased welfare payments and the economic situation initiated the call for a sub office.But he said this was a situation which was being addressed for some time now. “The Union and the Company have been in negotiations for sometime regarding this. The Company has installed a new computer and opened another position during peak business hours.“This has improved the queuing during the past week. Talks are ongoing between the Union and the Company,” he said.EndsQUEUES SLASHED AT LETTERKENNY POST OFFICE AS UNIONS DISMISS IDEA OF MORE OUTLETS IN TOWN was last modified: February 22nd, 2011 by StephenShare 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
