Sources: Thunder’s Anthony to opt in, take $28 million

It didn’t work out as planned.The 34-year-old Anthony had been the headliner his entire career — he’s 19th in NBA history with 25,417 points — but he was more of a catch-and-shoot scorer last season instead of the isolation specialist he had always been. He averaged 16.2 points per game, but struggled at times in his new role. His playing time dwindled in the playoffs and he wasn’t happy. In Game 6 of the first-round playoff series against Utah that ended Oklahoma City’s season, he played fewer minutes than backup Jerami Grant.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownIt wasn’t entirely clear if Anthony would opt in. After the season, he said he prefers to play with the ball in his hands more and said coming off the bench is “out of the question.”“So it’s something I really have to think about, if I really want to be this type of player, finish out my career as this type of player, knowing that I have so much left in the tank and I bring so much to the game of basketball,” he said.

Thunder general manager Sam Presti said at the end of the season that he doesn’t expect Anthony’s role to change.“I give him an enormous amount of credit for the fact that he put both feet in,” Presti said. “I personally think he did an excellent job in his first year transitioning his game, working to becoming more of an off-the-ballplayer, being more reliant on other people to generate his offense, and sacrificing a lot. At the same time, I think every player is entitled to take a step back after the season, reflect on the year they had, and in his case have to make a determination about whether or not this is a role that he wants to continue to be functioning in.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next FILE – In this Feb. 13, 2018, file photo, Oklahoma City Thunder forward Carmelo Anthony pauses during the team”s NBA basketball game against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Oklahoma City.

Gov’t Constructs 500 Schools

first_imgIn her state of the nation address to the joint session of the Legislature at the Capitol Building yesterday, President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf disclosed that to date, her government has constructed 5,571 public and private schools, educating more than 1,579,058 students, 48.5 percent of them female. “Our three rehabilitated teacher training institutes and special programs have trained 15,345 teachers and the teacher verification exercise is well advanced in several counties,” the President said. With this effort, she said her government will finally keep the ghost buried, wherever they are, in the educational system or not. Regarding the newly constructed Monrovia Vocational Training Center (MVTC), she said it will board up to 200 students and accommodate up to 1,000 day students. President Sirleaf, whose speech was punctuated by rounds of applause from the audience, mainly the Unity Party supporters, said the Booker Washington Institute (BWI) in Kakata, Margibi County, is now going through an organizational change and operational assessment toward the achievement of the goal of becoming a junior college. She did not elaborate, but recently BWI Board of Governors inducted into office a new principal, Harris Fomba Tarnue, who is charged with the responsibility to supervise the institute’s transition process. The Klay Basic Agriculture Training Center, the President said, now hosts 150 boarding students, and is producing vegetables and other produce, which she said, enable the faculty and student body to feed themselves and have a surplus for sale. “The Tumutu Agriculture Training Center in Bong County is being reconstructed to host 200 students aimed at a similar objective,” the President added. She said more than 500 young Liberians have benefited from bilateral and capacity development scholarships abroad. “In our own universities and colleges, private and public alike, this administration has awarded almost 13,000 with scholarships or financial assistance,” President Sirleaf told the nation yesterday, adding, “We are proud of the record of progress for the University of Liberia.” At the UL, she said there are 31,000 students enrolled at four campuses – Capitol Hill, Dogliotti, Straz-Sinje and Fendell, all of which have new and improved facilities. The President announced that an unprecedented 35 percent of the student population is enrolled in the sciences, engineering and agriculture programs., a stark departure from the past.“We have converted Tubman Technical College in Harper City into our second state university – as Tubman University, which is providing high quality education,” noting that today, “we have eight universities, six operated by faith-based institutions.” She then expressed gratitude to all faith based institutions for their continued partnership in assisting the government, through the Ministry of Education, to educate the youth. She said that during the year under review, 18 community colleges were constructed, with eight four-year colleges, two established by her Administration – Bong Technical College and Harbel College respectively. “Of course those achievements are not without hurdles.” The President reported that constraints in finances and available professionals have led the government to limit an expansion, while other options are being examined that would achieve the objective of making higher education available to all geographic areas of the country. “Even with these achievements, we continue to identify new methods and approaches intended to improve the quality of education for our young people, including policies regarding accreditation, management structures and subsidies for all public and private institutions.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Maintaining Peace an Obligation of All Liberians

first_imgCllr. Tiawan Saye Gongloe, a rights activist, on Sunday, July 3, notified 47 twelfth graders who completed their 2015/2016 academic work at Ricks Institute outside Monrovia, that Liberia’s dependency syndrome has hindered her national development. The promotion of dependency instead of laying a firm nationally-driven foundation for national development is a betrayal of the promise upon which citizens elected the present administration, he told the graduates.Cllr. Gongloe was delivering the keynote address at the institute’s closing convocation in the Washington Chapel Auditorium in Virginia, Montserrado County, on the topic, “Keeping the Promise of Maintaining Peace in Liberia: An Obligation of All Liberians.” The ceremony was jointly held for both 12th grade and kindergarten completing students. “This betrayal of promise “has created hopelessness, a lack of trust and respect for the government of Liberia and its functionaries” in the minds of every citizen across the country,” Gongloe said.The former Labor Minister told the students that if the government allows the situation to continue, it could undermine peace and cause a breakdown of law and order, thereby necessitating a return of the United Nations peace keeping forces to Liberia. The United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL), which started in 2003 following 14 years of civil war in the country, ended on June 30, 2016.“We must not let this happen to us. We must do nothing to undermine our collective security,” Cllr. Gongloe warned.Addressing the 12th graders, he said, “Emerging leaders in Liberia must commit themselves to keeping the promise of maintaining peace by making a solemn vow not to be like their predecessors who failed to keep the promise of upholding the values that promote and maintain peace.”He said the students must vote for leaders who, by their track records, have demonstrated consistency in what they say and do and therefore have the ability to keep the promise of maintaining peace in Liberia.Cllr. Gongloe added: “Do not follow the politicians, because doing so for short term benefits is the same as undermining the peace, stability, security and progress of our country.”“I advise you to choose your noble model wisely. Do not admire those who in a few months after getting into public office become so filthy rich as though they are money magicians,” he urged the students to a round of applause.In their separate valedictorian addresses, two of the 12th graders (a male and female) who topped their class, said for a high school student to be successful and make it to the end of the semester, requires a lot of effort and sacrifices, which can be achieved by the student if he or she has self-confidence. Therefore, students Shaynpue N. Guzeh and William Lawrence said their completion of the high school process should motivate their colleagues and other Liberian students to build self confidence and stand firm and work hard to battle the notion that the country’s school system is substandard and subservient to other systems of education. Ricks Institute’s Principal and Chief Administrative Officer, Rev. Dr. Olu Q. Menjay, expressed gratitude to the parents and all those who made Sunday’s closing convocation successful, especially the guest speaker, the Liberia Baptist Missionary and Education Convention, members of the Ricks Alumni Association, and partners for their support, which enabled the institute to realize a delightful 2015/16 academic year.“As we strive to promote learning through methods that encourage service, discipline and creativity, it is our hope that parents and guardians will provide the necessary resources and encouragement that will enable their children to go through a process that ensures holistic transformation,” said Dr. Menjay.

“Squatting is not a poor people thing” – GLSC Head

first_img…says tough action to be taken against offendersThe Guyana Lands and Surveys Commission (GLSC) plans to ramp up its work to remove squatters from across the country, as it has now been inundated with reports of incidents with affluent people in society also being accused of partaking in this illegal practice.GLSC Commissioner Trevor BennGLSC Commissioner Trevor Benn told Guyana Times on Tuesday that it has been observed by the Commission that there have been rampant squatting taking place along the reserves in Georgetown. Benn said along the area stretching from Bourda to Mandela Avenue every single land owner has extended their fence.“And these are people with knowledge, money and who should understand that they should not squat. One of them is a senior businessman, who even went to the courts to prescribe for the land,” he explained. He added that as a result of this illegal act, the Mayor and City Council of Georgetown did not have access to clean the reserve which is posing a major problem to keeping the area clean.Benn said, “So, squatting is not a poor people thing. It’s everybody squatting. It has become rampant and it has to stop and we will go after people as much as we can. We have a no-compromise policy when it comes to squatting.“People should not squat. The law said so,” he asserted.The Commissioner noted that the GLSC recognised that people have been forced in many cases to squat because of the length of time it takes to process land application. “We have applications here dating back to the early 1990s that haven’t been processed and we have hundreds of new applications we receive from new applicants, so we are under pressure,” he told this publication.According to him, in an effort to move on with their lives, some of these applicants have taken it upon themselves to squat. “However, this is not just people who are really desperate for a piece of land and they squatting, many business people with lots of money, with lots of land already owned, have been squatting forcing their way on lands and we have seen that only recently here,” he further added.The Commission said it observed that there was a significant increase in squatting along the Linden-Soesdyke Highway and in Port Kaituma among other areas. Squatting has taken place on lands already leased for industrial, commercial and residential land use, and on reserves, which constrain development of some areas and delay processing of land applications.The Lands Commission also observed that squatting has been facilitated by persons illegally selling lands in various areas and squatters pay money without receiving titles or agreement for the lands. The Commission has said that all squatters, including those who are encouraging squatting, would be prosecuted and new squatter settlements would not be regularised.last_img read more

Amgen bicycle tour rides into officials’ hearts

first_img alex.dobuzinskis@dailynews.com (661) 257-5253 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! As crews took down Amgen tour banners from bridges in the city Monday, the talk in shops along the race route was about how Saturday’s event affected business. Traffic was jammed at the Valencia Crossroads shopping center, at Valencia Boulevard and McBean Parkway. Adam Dreyfus, salesman at Wilshire Home Entertainment, saw a line of cars 100 yards long, and the jam lasted for hours and kept customers away, he said. “For us it was not good, but I think overall it probably brought a lot of people who hadn’t been out to this valley, so I think it was pretty cool,” Dreyfus said. Santa Clarita will put in its application with tour organizers to host the event again next year, said Gail Ortiz, spokeswoman for the city. The Amgen tour is the most attended cycling race in the United States. “I was just absolutely thrilled to death with that entire program,” Kellar said. SANTA CLARITA – City officials were so pleased with how this weekend’s Amgen pro bicycle tour played out that they want to host it again. In the coming weeks, the city will analyze sales-tax figures and talk to Santa Clarita restaurant, hotel and shop owners to find out how much of a financial boost the televised Tour of California provided. But officials said Monday that they already know it got the city noticed, drawing a crowd of between 150,000 and 200,000 spectators. The event also jammed traffic, and officials say if the event comes back they will work on their traffic plan. “Economic development is huge when you have those (numbers of) people coming to the community, and I would hope that everyone would be pleased to have this come back to our city,” Councilman Bob Kellar said Monday. “And a little minor inconvenience on the road once a year is not that big a deal.” last_img read more

Simi Valley considers landscaping waterway after ignoring it for decades

first_img“There is a ton of potential down there. It’s really quite charming,” said Simi Valley City Councilwoman Barbra Williamson, who rides her bicycle there regularly and has been pushing for the project to beautify the arroyo. “We want to incorporate parks into the setting of the arroyo, where mothers can go with their children, where you can go for running, walking and bike riding.” A task force made up mainly of officials from the city and the Rancho Simi Recreation and Park District is working with a consultant to prepare some beautification proposals. “At this point it’s kind of a collage of ideas,” said Jeff Ferber, a landscape architect and principal with the RRM Design Group, hired by the city to work on the project. Officials hope to hold a public meeting in about a month to show some concepts to local residents and get their ideas. Right now Arroyo Simi doesn’t appeal to as many people as it could, with homes, parks and businesses backing up to the waterway, rather than banks decorated with lush greenery and colorful landscaping, Ferber said. “You have decades and decades and decades of people turning their back to the arroyo,” he said. “It’s not very friendly right now. You don’t have the sense it is inviting.” He spoke to city officials at a recent planning meeting and offered improvements – pedestrian bridges, walkways, stairs and overlooks, including one featuring cascading water near the old Pioneer Cemetery. He showed how parklike walkways could be extended off the arroyo to Simi Valley Historic Park and along Tapo Canyon Creek, which leads past Sycamore Drive Community Center into a historic neighborhood around the Simi Valley Cultural Arts Center. He also suggested expanding the nearby Rancho Simi Community Park to reach out into the arroyo and said the old hospital property across the arroyo at Erringer Road could be developed commercially to face the waterway. In the 1800s, developers hoping to lure investors from back east portrayed the Arroyo Simi as a beautiful river full of big fish and enough water to float a paddle-wheel steamer. The early settlers, however, found the arroyo to be a nearly dry creek bed most of the year and a raging torrent during winter rains. Because of development, there is now almost always a little water running through the arroyo, which can still turn into a rush of whitewater during storms. Flood-control experts have spent millions of dollars trying to create a safe channel for the arroyo so it won’t overflow its banks and flood homes and businesses. Ventura County Watershed Protection District officials have warned there are still spots that could be inadequate to handle what is called a “100-year flood,” or one that has a 1 percent chance of being equaled or exceeded in any given year. Safety will continue to be the first priority, officials said, but much more can be done to make the banks of the river more inviting, including some relatively low-cost improvements to parks, and walkways that could be built with already-available funding. “Once you start creating an awareness of the arroyo, people will care more about beautifying it,” Williamson said. Some residents who live along the arroyo might be opposed to the beautification effort out of fear that it might attract crime, city officials said. But Ferber said studies show that crime rates go down rather than up in neighborhoods with such projects because the trails result in more members of the community watching out for each other. “There are a lot of schools and parks with potential for connecting those public places to the arroyo as a kind of necklace,” he said. “It makes it easier that the Arroyo Simi is not a concrete (channel) like the Los Angeles River. The bottom is natural.” While some parts of the Arroyo Simi are lined with rocks to stabilize the slopes and have concrete grade-stabilizers along the bottom, other parts look almost completely natural, with sandy bottoms and plants and trees along the shore. The Arroyo Equestrian Center, Vista Del Arroyo Park, Frontier Park and Rancho Simi Community Park are some of the recreational facilities already situated along the arroyo. Improvements have to be affordable, Councilman Steve Sojka said, but they can also be imaginative, stirring community interest in the arroyo as a gathering place, Councilman Steve Sojka said. “The potential is huge,” he said, “but a lot of people don’t even know about it.” eric.leach@dailynews.com (805) 583-7602160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Now, community leaders are launching an effort to give the arroyo a face-lift. last_img read more
