admin No Comments

first_imgAs Onda Cero advanced, Carles Pérez will travel to Italy on Tuesday to sign the contract that will join Rome in the coming seasons. The giallorosso club has seduced the striker and has reached an agreement with Barça, which he will pay 13 million euros for the transfer. In principle, and according to the statements of Petrachi, sports director of Rome, no repurchase option for the azulgrana. Carles Pérez will be Barça’s third casualty in this winter market after Todibo and Aleñá, assigned to Schalke and Betis respectively. Setién told the player on Friday that they did not have him while the club was already negotiating with the Romanian club, where Carles Pérez will not have easy play with extremes like Kluivert or Under. Barça still does not incorporate a single player in the winter market and has already lost three.Carles Pérez, given as an example of love for some colors recently, is already another merchandise in the history of the Barça club. Barça’s treatment of the player has surprised Carles Pérez himself, his surroundings and the partner.last_img read more

first_imgA Liberian man, who collapsed while watching Arsenal losing to Chelsea on Saturday afternoon, was pronounced dead by doctors after he was rushed to a local clinic in Monrovia.According to eyewitnesses, shortly after the game ended in favor of Chelsea with 2 over Arsenal, the elderly man, only identified as Fofana, fell to the ground.“Fofana apparently had a heart attack when the final whistle sounded,” an eyewitness told this newspaper, following the stampede that ensued after the match, at a video club on Benson and Lynch Street in Central Monrovia.The deceased, a resident of Clara Town, was a professional tailor, who worked as president of the Fofana Tailoring Shop on Benson Street, neighbors said.Paramedics, who arrived at the video club around 2p.m. and took the man to the clinic, confirmed his death.An eyewitness, who claimed to be a Chelsea fan, said Mr. Fofana’s death was a tragedy, because he was a loyal member of Arsenal Club. It was also reported that a van conveying Mr. Fofana’s body to a local mosque was reportedly involved in a crash on Broad Street, Crown Hill.Meanwhile, in keeping with the Moslem tradition, the remains of Fofana were reportedly buried yesterday morning. On the game itself Coach Jose Mourinho was full of praise for his players, following Chelsea’s 2-0 win over Arsenal at Stamford Bridge Saturday.The Blues scored twice in the second half, through Kurt Zouma and Eden Hazard, to secure a much-needed three points, and it was no more than the team deserved having been much the better side.The visitors had both Gabriel and Santi Cazorla sent off, but Mourinho preferred to focus on the qualities of his own side.“It was a very good performance, a deserved victory, I’m happy with the performance and points,” Jose Mourinho, Chelsea’s Manager said after the match.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

HOUSEHOLD TAX: SINN FEIN LAUNCH ONLINE BID TO WOO FIANNA FAIL

admin No Comments

first_imgSinn Féin has launched a bold ‘people power’ campaign in an effort to persuade Fianna Fail councillors to back a motion on the household charge.Cllr Jack Murray’s wants Donegal County Council to officially refuse to collect information from utility companies in order to pursue those who haven’t paid the the €100 tax.But he needs the support of Fianna Fáil to succeed. Now TD Padraig Mac Lochlainn is supporting his party councillors in an online bid to woo Fianna Fáil.He posted a link on his Facebook page giving contact details for all councillors and urged voters to “ask them to support Sinn Fein’s motion” on the household charge tomorrow.Speaking to donegaldaily.com at the weekend Cllr Murray said: “Unfortunately at the last sitting of Donegal County Council, Fine Gael were facilitated by their Mayor to filibuster throughout the meeting in order to block my motion from being discussed.“While their childish and undemocratic stunt succeeded in blocking a debate on the motion, they did not prevent me from reading it out. Therefore the motion stands and will be discussed on Tuesday. “Two independent councillors have already confirmed that they will support me. With the support of Fianna Fáil the motion will succeed.“The vast majority of people in Donegal have not paid the household charge. They have not done so because it is unjust. They understand that it will not pay for council services and are fed up paying new taxes in order to bailout private banking debt.“This motion is about protecting their privacy. It would be wrong for the council to access ESB bills and social welfare information from families in Donegal.“I understand that some members of Fianna Fáil agree that the council should not do this. I hope that they will support me on Tuesday.”Meanwhile homeowners could face €300 installation charges for their water meters.

Santa Fe High marks 50th anniversary

admin No Comments

first_imgSANTA FE SPRINGS — Santa Fe Springs High School opened its campus 50 years ago, the same year Mickey began greeting guests at Disneyland and Quaker introduced instant oatmeal. “When I came here (in 1957), there didn’t used to be a parking lot.” Chuck Zetzman, 67, of Cerritos, said. “When it would rain, they would call off school and then build ramps with planks of wood to get us off the campus.” Almost five decades and about 150,000 graduating students later, Janice Hernandez was crowned the 50th homecoming queen at Friday’s game against Whittier High School. “We had longer practices getting ready for this weekend. We wanted the alumni to say, ‘Wow,’ ” said Ellen Bechtold, 16, a Santa Fe Springs Pepster who cheered on the Chiefs Friday. “My fondest memories were running cross country and attending meets in other communities,” Barcelo said.’ He said the campus, now connected by cement walkways and surrounded by trees and grass, used to be blacktop. “I like the way it looks. It gives it a nice atmosphere,” he said. “It reminds me of a university.” The display of yearbooks in the library showed more subtle changes that have occurred on campus. The 1955 yearbook shows photographs of an organization called the Constitution Writers and a German Club. The 1967 yearbook includes a photograph of the “Kleat Kleaners,” – a group comprised of girls who supported the football team. By 1975, the German Club is no longer featured, but the school had added a Saddie Hawkins dance to its list of activities. In the 1981 book, girls begin to take up a few pages in the sports section. Skimming through the 2004 yearbook, which is now entirely in color, it appears that the Saddie Hawkins dance is no longer a annual event. “I remember High Jinx (a talent show) and football games,” Judy Buckley, 55, of Mission Viejo said. “And Saddie Hawkins dances were always a lot of fun.” “I really like (the anniversary celebration). It shows how united Santa Fe Springs is,” Lisa Meacham, 17, said. “It makes you happy to be a chief knowing that your part of something and that you’re always welcome back.” Correspondent Bridget Schinnerer can be reached at (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3027.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
