RIVERSIDE – The Jurupa Valley girls basketball team is a giant among Lilliputians in the Sunkist League, but that doesn’t stop Jaguars coach Anthony Williams from setting game-to-game goals for his team. Besides a victory at Ramona on Thursday, Williams said he wanted his team to work on holding its intensity. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card Jurupa Valley came out with that hustle on both ends of the floor. On offense, the Jaguars opened the game with a 14-0 spurt and closed the first quarter on a 15-0 run. Defensively, Jurupa Valley used the press to cause turnovers and played hard on the defensive glass to hold the Rams (1-17, 0-3) without a field goal in the quarter. Ramona got two free throws from Marissa Saucedo and a free throw from Kristine Valentine to account for the scoring in the quarter. Before the game Williams said he wanted his team to control the boards and shoot 75 percent from the free throw line in addition to missing no more than two layups. Jurupa Valley had 37 team rebounds to Ramona’s 25 and the Jaguars made nine-of-14 free throw attempts (64 percent), which Williams said needed to be worked on. “We missed that goal, so they have consequences for those,” Williams said about his team’s missed layups. “We’ll take care of those in practice tomorrow.” Junior Jennifer Avila scored 12 of her 15 points in the first quarter to lead the Jaguars. Senior Tamara Wells and sister Lola, a sophomore, each added 10 points. Saucedo scored six points to lead Ramona. Jurupa Valley showed the intensity its coach was looking for in the opening minutes of a 71-17 rout. Even though the Jaguars (17-5, 4-0) didn’t keep that intensity for the entire game and missed more than the two layups that Williams set as a goal, he said it was still a good victory. “I just wanted to come out here and see some type of effort. We wanted them to come out and play hard,” Williams said. “I tell them that talent is going to go up and down, but hustle is universal. Everybody can hustle, so there’s no reason why we can’t hustle every time we come out on the floor.”

A man who killed two friends after downing several drinks and then crashing into a lamppost has been jailed for five years and banned from driving for 15 years.Drunk-driver Dermot Dowd, 24, was behind the wheel when he lost control of a car outside Ballybofey killing Kiara Baird, aged 19 and Maria Wallace, aged 38. Dowd initially tried to claim that Ms Wallace, a mother-of-three, was driving the Citroën C3 car which crashed at Glenfin Road just after 4pm on September 21st, 2016.He later admitted drinking for hours in a local bar with the two women before getting behind the wheel.Letterkenny Circuit Court heard how both women had pleaded with Dowd to slow down but he continued to drive dangerously.Ms Baird died at the scene while Ms Wallace died a short time later in hospital after both had been thrown out of the car during the horrific crash.Judge John Aylmer sentenced Dowd to six years for dangerous driving causing death but suspended the last 12 months of the sentence stating the offence to be at the upper end of the scale.He also banned him from driving for fifteen years.Kiara Baird and Maria Wallace died in a crash. Pic by Northwest Newspix.On the charge of drink-driving, Dowd was sentenced to a further four months in jail but this is to run concurrently.The charges of driving without a license, driving while uninsured and another dangerous of dangerous driving were taken into account.Dressed in a grey tracksuit, Dowd showed no emotion when the sentence was passed down.Judge Aylmer expressed his condolences to both the Baird and Wallace families who were in court.The day on which the women were killed, September 21st, 2016, was the official ‘European Day Without a Road DeathThis was a campaign supported by the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport Shane Ross TD, An Garda Síochána, the Road Safety Authority (RSA) and TISPOL to support European Day Without A Road Death, known as Project EDWARD.The initiative had been organised by TISPOL, the Traffic Police network in Europe, and its aim is that nobody would die on the roads of Europe on that day.Dowd, of Donegal Road, Ballybofey, pleaded guilty last Tuesday to dangerous driving causing the women’s deaths, dangerous driving, drink-driving, driving without insurance and driving without a license.The court heard how both women had been studying a course with the Education Training Board (ETB) and had decided to go for a couple of drinks in Bonner’s Bar in Ballybofey.They met Dowd in the bar and they began drinking together.Around 4pm, all three got into Ms Wallace’s car and CCTV footage showed Dowd having a number of near misses before travelling out the Glenfin Road.A couple of minutes later he was to lose control of the car, hit a footpath and then strike a lamppost.Garda forensic evidence revealed that after it had rained, the road became dry and that weather was not a factor in the crash.Ms Wallace’s car was also in a serviceable condition and was not a factor in the crash on the road which is governed by a 60 kmph speed limit.The families of the two dead women sat in court listening to the harrowing details of how their loved ones died.In a victim impact statement, Kiara Baird’s mother Tracy told how they had moved from Dublin to Donegal to start a new life as they felt their neighbourhood was getting rough.She told how her daughter was a little naive and innocent and took people at face value but how she had the most beautiful smile and was always so happy.She said her life had changed forever since she lost her first-born child.“There will always be a big part of me missing with her gone. I really could never express how much I miss and love her, and how lost we all are without her.“I have lost people in my life who I have truly cared about, but the loss of Kiara was nothing I have ever experienced.“It’s like something broke into my chest and just ripped out my heart,” she said.Maria Wallace’s mum Mary McGonagle’s victim impact statement was also read into court.She said that all she wanted was justice for her daughter.“For me there is no pills or operation I could have to heal my broken heart.“All I do now is stand beside Maria’s grave and cry alone. I would have given anything to keep my coffin in her room to be near her and I still wish I could,” she said.Further victim impact statements were read on behalf of Kiara’s dad Andrew Blake while a poem by Maria’s brother Michael was also read out.His barrister Mr Colm Smyth, SC, said his client had often wondered why he was not killed in the accident.“He is troubled by the fact that he survived this accident and his two passengers did not.“He full accepts full responsibility and that he needs to be punished. But regardless of the sentence, he will be doing the sentence for the rest of his life,” he said.The court was also told that Dowd has 30 previous convictions for a range of offences including theft and the sale and supply of drugs but has no convictions for traffic offences.Drunk-driver who killed two pals jailed for five years and banned from driving for 15 years was last modified: February 4th, 2018 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) Tags:Ballybofey Dermot DowdcourtDEATHSdrink drivingKiara BairdMaria Wallaceprison
THE Greek debt crisis has sent markets around the world tumbling, sparking fears over our own bailout.But there’s one thing we will be getting from the Greeks this week which we will all welcome….their weather!That’s because high pressure over the continent is sending hot weather from Greece up over Ireland for the rest of the week, and perhaps beyond. And that will send temperatures into the 20s – and save us all a few quid on the oil and coal bills….for a few days at least.But it’s still 50/50 whether or not Donegal will actually see non-stop sunshine.RTE is reporting that our coastlines in Donegal – and some places inland – will see rain, mizzle, fog and mist between now and Friday. (If they’re wrong, you’ll know soon enough.) TV3 and the BBC thinks they are….they’re being a lot more optimistic for blue skiesAll agree we will get the warm humid temperatures, so all’s not lost. And if irishweatheronline.com is correct (and they usually are), they are predicting at this early stage that the high pressure could win out against the cold fronts to free up Donegal from any of that cloud and rain. And that it may last for ten days!It reports: “The main theme for the week will be a gradual warming trend affecting the eastern half of the country more directly as the western counties remain rather close to a persistent frontal zone with waves of moisture moving north, much of that offshore, but some coming inland about as far east as mid-Ulster south through Athlone to about Cork.“The warm spell should gain the upper hand over the cloud and showers by the end of the week and extend further west by next weekend to cover just about all districts by then. The situation is somewhat uncertain and a slight shift in the pattern or extensive low cloud could cut into potential record high temperatures that seem very likely to develop over parts of England and France, and could also develop in east-central Ireland at least on one or two days out of the period … and the warmth could last until the following weekend and some distance beyond that before gradually fading out in a resumed westerly flow that may eventually yield to a colder northerly.”So there you have it. Very warm is certain…just how much rain or sun that comes with it is the subject of much debate.We’re off to the all-night garage for some Factor 50!

Firefighters across Donegal have paid a touching tribute to Bernie Kearney, the woman who lost her house in this week’s flooding catastrophe.Bernie’s home in Urris was completely destroyed when a mudslide enveloped her home.Bernie was lucky to escape with her life after jumping out of a bedroom window. It has since emerged that kind-hearted Bernie recently looked after a number of firemen who attended gorse fires in her local area in recent weeks.A statement issued by Donegal Firefighters on the Inishwoen Penninsula last night said “The Donegal Firefighters Association were very saddened to learn of what happened to the house of a wonderful lady who stayed up all night making food and made sure every single Firefighter was fed who was fighting the Gorse and Forest Fires a few months ago.Bernie Kearney of Urris was lucky to escape from her home when it was engulfed by a mudslide.The DFA would like, on behalf of all the Firefighters, to offer Bernie any support they can give her in this difficult time.” Donegal firemen pay tribute to kind-hearted Bernie after house catastrophe was last modified: August 25th, 2017 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) Tags:Bernie KearneydestroyeddonegalInishowenmud
Thanks to a fortuitous Lions penalty, 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo avoided going from G.O.A.T. to goat in the minds of some on Sunday.Garoppolo seemed to throw an inexcusable interception with 3:21 left that appeared to put Detroit in position to overcome a 17-point deficit and stun San Francisco.Then came relief in the form of a yellow flag. Away from the play, a holding penalty was called on Quandre Diggs. Gone was Tracy Walker’s stunning interception and subsequent return to the …

Triple TownFree – iOS, AndroidMobile games have grown increasingly sophisticated, to the point where games that used to live only on consoles like the Xbox and Playstation are now rendered beautifully on your smartphone.

Horn$6.99 – iOS, AndroidOnly Zynga would have the audacity to charge $6.99 for a mobile game on iOS and Android.

Turns out, those monsters are the blacksmith’s fellow townspeople, transformed by some weird curse. Battle your way through with your decidedly odd sidekick in a game that is both an epic adventure and role-playing-game (RPG), all in one. 2. IngressFree (Invite Only) – AndroidOne of the most intriguing games to hit any mobile devices this year, Ingress is still only in invite-only mode but. When reviewing Ingress, I thought that the game, from Google’s Niantic Labs, had the potential to truly define what a mobile game could be. It employs augmented/alternate reality, location and social features through a unique massive-multiplayer setting: the real world. Hack portals, control Exotic Matter, battle for the Enlightenment or the Resistance. Ingress can be mildly addictive (and somewhat dangerous) once you get your hands on an invite. 6.

Dominating the app-store charts, a good game can make mobile developers millions of dollars, or at least keep them in business to take a stab another stab at greatness.Another positive factor for mobile games in 2012 is that most major independent and major game studios now release games on both iOS and Android – and sometimes other platforms as well. This means smartphone users can get the best games no matter which leading mobile platform they use.Apple and Google have shared their leading iOS and Android games for 2012.

Naught also employs the gyroscope on your mobile device to allow you to control your character by manipulating your device to let gravity pull you further down the rabbit hole. 7. SHADOWGUN: DeadzoneFree – iOS, AndroidSome of the best games of the personal computer era were first-person shooters. Games like Doom featured original point-of-view of the action and extreme violence. In the mobile era, first-person shooters are becoming more sophisticated, easier to control, employ better graphics and… remain incredibly violent. SHADOWGUN: Deadzone is one of the best in this category for 2012. It is interesting and fun, a little cheesy and in your face. Put it all together and it’s one of the best free games you will find on a mobile device. What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … dan rowinski Related Posts 1.

In a major embarrassment to the BJP, a former Trinamool Congress MLA in West Bengal denied any association with the party within hours of her being named as its candidate for an Assembly byelection in the State.Manju Basu was to be the BJP’s candidate in the Noapara Assembly constituency in North 24 Paraganas district, where polling is scheduled for January 29.“I have no idea how the BJP announced my name. I have not received any communication from the BJP State leadership about this and came to know about it from the media,” Ms. Basu told The Hindu. She, however, admitted that she had held several meetings with BJP leaders Kailash Vijayvargiya, national general secretary, and Mukul Roy.Following the gaffe, the BJP declared that Sandeep Banerjee, the party’s president in the district, would be its candidate in Noapara. The Assembly seat fell vacant following the death of Congress MLA Madhusudhan Ghosh last year.Mukul Roy in a spotThe development has put Mr. Roy in a spot as the State BJP leadership made it clear that it was he who approached the former Trinamool MLA to contest. “Ms. Basu is an old acquaintance of Mr. Roy. He persuaded her to join the BJP and contest the bypolls. I do not know anything about her,” BJP State president Dilip Ghosh said. He alleged that it was “Trinamool’s intimidation” that forced Ms. Basu to suddenly “back track”.Accepting responsibility, Mr. Roy said “the incident was perhaps the outcome of his adventurism”. A senior BJP leader admitted that there had been a “serious miscommunication” between the Central and the State leaderships.Trinamool leadership denied the allegation of intimidation. “Mukul Roy tried to break the Trinamool, but ended up losing his credibility,” said Food and Supplies Minister Jyotipryo Mullick.
