FOOLISH

first_imgThat vainness they flaunt with vanityAll day they carry like traveling luggageBoasting of fripperies that makes no senseDwelling in their follies high as WologisiSeldom will great words flow from their lipsSturdy postures but whiff of bravadoThey make great charlatans for our townGlimpse them in their assemblance of follySparkling in their garment of dullnessThat is that distinction that anger good folksWishing and praying a sense come soonGiggling as the resolve that is yet nothingShare this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

S.D. Horizon ends Ontario Christian’s season

first_imgBut it took more than a half for second-seeded Horizon to take control in an eventual 66-48 victory over sixth-seeded Ontario Christian in a CIF Division IV Southern Regional semifinal Saturday night before a standing-room-only crowd of about 1,000. “I think we ran out of gas,” Ontario Christian coach Scott Brummel said. “That run we made in the first half took at lot out of us.” “We started to get going at the end of the half, and I think halftime came at a bad time for us,” said senior Justus Jones, who tied for team-high honors with 12 points and had six rebounds. Horizon (24-6) looked to put the game away early when the Panthers took an 11-point second-quarter lead that was still 10 (30-20) after senior Marquise Carter (game-high 23 points) hit a 3-pointer with 2:38 to play before halftime. But Ontario Christian (25-6) scored the final eight points of the half, including a Jones steal and layup at the buzzer that brought the Knights to within 30-28 at halftime. But the tandem of Carter and Withey was too much for the Knights. Withey’s impact in the first half was on the defensive end, where he blocked five shots in the half. In the second half, he scored 10 of his 12 points. Ontario Christian’s run at the end of the first half came after Withey picked up his third foul and came out of the game. Withey did foul out, but it wasn’t until there was only 3:49 to play and the Panthers were up by 16. “We just could make our shots in the second half,” Brummel said. “We had some open looks.” Ontario Christian survived a 17-2 Horizon run in the first half, but an 18-6 Horizon run at the end of the third and beginning of the fourth quarter was too much for the Knights to overcome. “We’ve played a zone all year, and they did a good job of attacking it,” Brummel said. “What hurt us was their role players. Guys who score five or six points a night hit some big threes.” Sophomore John Oldengarm scored 12 points and senior Tyler Vanderzee added 11 for Ontario Christian. Jones, who played on the Knights’ CIF finalist team two years ago before winning the CIF-SS Division IV-AA title this year, was proud of the team’s accomplishments. “To be the best team in school history has been a blessing,” he said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

A glance at the wall of the gym at San Diego Horizon High School showed that Horizon was a three-time state champion, including the defending DivisionIV champ. The Panthers have also won six straight CIF-San Diego Section titles. center_img In contrast, Ontario Christian won its first boys basketball CIF section title in school history last week and got its first CIF-State playoff win on Thursday with an upset at Bakersfield Garces. And that was even before the teams took the floor and the Knights had to face Horizon’s seven-foot junior, Jeff Withey. last_img read more

2 men found dead in home

first_imgGRANADA HILLS – Two men were found shot to death inside a home Thursday, and police were searching for the killer, authorities said. A woman who lives at the house in the 17000 block of San Jose Street with her boyfriend and another woman discovered the two men dead about 2 p.m., said LAPD Detective Humberto Fajardo. The victims, both Latinos who appeared to be in their mid-20s, were found inside the home near the entrance, lying on the floor, Fajardo said. There was no sign of forced entry. The woman did not identify either of the dead men, so police could not confirm if either was her boyfriend. The men’s names were not released, and nobody has been arrested.

Soon after, the home’s owner fixed up the property and assured Williams that the next tenants would be an improvement because he found them through his church. Up until Thursday’s killings, Williams has had no complaints. “They’ve been model neighbors,” he said. Although police said one man and two women lived at the home, Williams said it appeared to him that two younger men, two young women and an older man lived there. In March, shortly after they moved in, the two young men helped Williams trim some trees that were hanging over from his yard into theirs, Williams said. The young men would offer a respectful wave when they saw their neighbors but wouldn’t converse much beyond that, neighbors said. “They stuck to themselves,” neighbor Justin Jameson said. “They weren’t the outgoing neighborly type.” rick.coca@dailynews.com 818-713-3329 For more news and observations about crime in Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley, check out the Daily News’ crime blog by clicking here.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Grove painful reminder of risks

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card “We’re not here because of reckless driving,” City Councilman Frank Ferry said. “We’re here because of choices. … You have a choice to put a seat belt on. I don’t want any more stumps on this grove. We as a community are going to say `No more.”‘ An assistant principal at Saugus High, Ferry choked back tears during his remarks. “These aren’t tree stumps to me. This isn’t just another place in Santa Clarita to go to. When I look out there today, these kids are very much alive. I know that every single kid here who is forever young never got to reach their potential.” The Renolds brothers, their 17-year-old friend, Dominic Ianozzi, and a passer-by, Rodney “Rocky” Adams, 45, were killed in the high-speed crash. Marcus Lellan, the teenage driver of the car in which the friends were riding, later pleaded guilty to four counts of manslaughter. “When you lose your child, you lose your future,” Renolds said. “All the `what ifs’ – who would they marry, what would they be doing? You don’t ever find the answers.” Kristen Lucille Sander-Corbitt was 29 when she was killed in 2002 in a crash on San Fernando Road. She left behind daughter Arieahna, now 10, and twins, Brieahna and Jaiden, who were just 17 days old when their mother died. Therese Sander – Kristen’s mother – brought the now 3-year-old twins to the dedication for a tearful visit. “It’s very special,” Sander said. “It’s someplace they can come and mourn … My whole family’s deceased. My grandkids keep me going.” Diane Birones, who lost her 20-year-old daughter Michelle in a car crash in 1997, has turned her loss into a source of strength – she organizes support groups for parents also dealing with the death of a child. “It was very sad and heartfelt,” she said. “There isn’t a day goes by that I don’t think about her – sometimes with tears and sometimes with smiles.” Organizers, including the city’s Blue Ribbon Task Force on teen issues, plan to hold annual vigils at the memorial. “The kids drive so fast,” Sander said. “Hopefully, they’ll stop and reconsider.” Eugene Tong, (661) 257-5253 eugene.tong@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

SAUGUS – The warm breeze that blew during Saturday’s dedication of a memorial to local youths who lost their lives in the twisted steel and shattered glass of traffic crashes were a good omen for Alice Renolds. “I think the kids were talking to me,” said Renolds, whose sons, Timothy, 18, and Daniel, 15, were among four people killed Feb. 27, 2000, in a crash on Soledad Canyon Road. The $250,000 Santa Clarita Youth Grove memorial in Central Park consists of 56 tree stumps – nearly all bearing the name and age of a person killed in a traffic crash before reaching age 25, who are connected with the city either by birth, education or the location of accident. They branch out like sun rays, ringing a plaque in the center engraved with the vow, “No more names will be added to this memorial.” last_img

SINN FEIN SHOULD CHANGE ADVISERS OVER ECONOMICS – HARTE

first_imgLabour Senator Jimmy Harte says Sinn Fein are so confused when it comes to economics, they maybe should change their advisors as they cannot decide what 0.1 % of GDP is.He said the party’s recently published guide to the Treaty/referendum once again proves the incompetency of Sinn Fein’s economic arguments.“As with most of their arguments in the debate so far, they have made simple schoolboy errors. “On page 11 under the heading “Article 8” it states: ‘Failure to comply brings a penalty payment of up to 0.1% of Member States GDP. (This would equate to €500m on the basis of current Irish GDP)’.“However, on Page 13 regarding Article 8 it states: ‘Significantly the Court could impose fines of up to 0.1% of GDP which at 2011 GDP levels in Ireland would mean approximately €160m’.THe Letterkenny Senator said perhaps Pearse Doherty and Padraig MacLochlainn should get their calculators out and do the maths again, “can do better” would be their school report.“Their inability to analyse the issues and the figures shows that their sums do not add up again.So which is it – €500m or €160m? Where has the €340m gone. “As well as being anti Europe, they are now telling the faming community, the business community and the employers groups that they should vote No but these organisations are advocating a Yes vote as they see the folly of Sinn Fein’s arguments“This once again highlights how Sinn Fein’s arguments against the Stability Treaty are not based on sound economics and how they are cynically and deliberately confusing the issue. Sinn Fein is being selective and hypocritical in its arguments and the Irish people deserve more transparency and honesty in the Treaty debate.“A vital point Sinn Fein is missing in the debate is that the euro is our currency and this Treaty is in our interests. Their interpretation of the figures defies logic and this is yet another attempt by Sinn Fein to hoodwink the electorate not long after they failed to adequately quote economists on another leaflet just to justify their misleading stance,”.He added he was urging people to vote Yes because the Stability Treaty is an important part of Ireland’s response to the crisis in the euro. We cannot have stability and growth in Ireland without stability and growth in Europe. The treaty is not the solution to all our problems but it is an important part of the solution. SINN FEIN SHOULD CHANGE ADVISERS OVER ECONOMICS – HARTE was last modified: May 8th, 2012 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
