Apoel are playing their last card tonight in Azerbaijan against Qarabag FK as a loss for the Cyprus champions will end any realistic hopes they may have of progressing to the knockout stages of the Europa League.This will be third time the two sides will meet this season as they also faced each other in August in the third qualifying round of the Champions League. In that tie Apoel managed to overturn a 2-1 deficit from the first leg in Nicosia by defeating the Azeris 2-0 at the Tofiq Bahramov stadium.The second leg in Azarbaijan was Apoel coach Thomas Doll’s first game in charge after replacing Paolo Tramezzani between the two legs. However things have not been going very well for Doll’s team since then as Apoel have yet to pick up a point from their opening two games of the competition, losing to bottom side Dudelange in Nicosia and to Sevilla in Spain. Their form in the domestic league has also been disappointing despite winning all three games they have played so far.Apoel’s press spokesperson Nectarios Petevinos was candid when asked about the significance of the game: “If we do not get something out of this game, then we can forget about progressing to the next stage,” he said “Hopefully a good result in Azerbaijan can kick-start our season not only in Europe but also in the Cyprus league where our performances have been problematic,” he added.Apoel will be without Argentinian midfielder Tomas de Vincenti while all other players are at the disposal of the German coach. Qarabag coach Gurban Gourbanov believes that his side will be better prepared for Apoel this time round as the element of surprise is no longer there. “They had just brought in a new coach and we did not how he would set out his players on the field,” Gurbanov said.Azeri midfielder Gara Garayev went a step further, saying: “This time there are no secrets, I am sure they have studied our style of play as much as we have theirs, but we do have the crowd behind us which I am sure will spur us on.”The game will be officiated by Slovakian referee Filip Glova and will kick-off at 7.55pm.In the other group A game, Sevilla will be strong favourites to register their third straight win in the competition against Dudelange.This game gets underway at 10pm.

A 74yr old club dancer, Mr. Joseph N. Quoibiah, has hit the dancing stages at nightclubs and public places in the commercially booming city of Ganta.In his retrospection, he said he began his dancing career at the age of 12, while in the fourth grade. “When people see me, they thought that I am foolish and not to myself, but it is not so. I love dancing and been dancing throughout my life,” he said.“I dance all music; and when I was very young, people hired me to dance for them in the clubs and public places those days,” he added, and continued saying: “I loved dancing and it is through dancing that I supported my family. Sometimes, when people see you dancing in the streets, they feel that you are not to yourself. But let me say that most of the people walking about are sometimes frustrated and need to get rid of the stress or frustration…When we are dancing, people give us money and share with us some of their personal belongings, because of the entertainment we offer to the masses. I dance jar music, Kenya, the Cuban Music, followed by Prince Nico, Bob Marley, just to name a few.”Dancer Joseph N Quoibiah, who is popularly known in Ganta as Michael Jackson, was born in 1942 in Belekpalah in the Loa Clan, now Nimba County. “I went to school and stopped in the 10th grade,” he asserted.“My wife and I were blessed with seven children: two died and the remaining five are all men and women now, some pursuing higher education. Unfortunately, I lost my wife three years ago,” he lamented.Pa Quoibiah said he is not ashamed of dancing, adding “It is part of me from my youth, even if I am in the village, I sometimes feel like dancing. I am proud to be a dancer, regardless of where I dance.”Oldman Joseph Quoibiah can be seen in many public places, mostly during the day, dancing. He sometimes dances at the nightclubs, too.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Grants-in-lieu of property taxes are given in out as a way to pay municipalities back for services that benefited government properties. In the past, it was the practice that one level of government did not tax the property of another level of government. However, beginning in the 1960s, the province began to recognize its responsibility to compensate municipalities for local services that benefited these properties, such as roads, sewers, and fire protection. The amount each community receives is based on the assessed value of the properties and the municipality’s tax rate. Each municipality sends a portion of its grant-in-lieu to its regional district, and those local governments use the money to help pay for local services. Fort St. John will be giving $11,048.45 to the Peace River Regional District. In total, $16.9 million is being distributed to 64 B.C. communities.- Advertisement –

Arsenal have moved ahead of rivals Manchester United in the race to sign highly-rated striker Kevin Mendez.Arsene Wenger has made an approach to buy the 18-year-old Uruguay under-20 international, who plies his trade with Club Atletico Penarol in his homeland.The Gunners have been tracking the teenager for some time and scouts have watched Mendez flourish in domestic and youth international football.Louis van Gaal’s Red Devils are also after the young striker but, according to Tuttomercatoweb, Arsenal is the Uruguayan’s preferred destination and the north London club could bid for his signature during the January transfer window.Penarol have made it clear they are reluctant to sell their teenage prodigy, tipped for big things by former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez, just yet however the Uruguayan giants may have no choice but to cash in if a big-money offer is received.Mendez burst onto the scene last year when he scored two goals in the 2013 FIFA under-17s World Cup. 1 Kevin Mendez [left]
Gabriel 1 Arsenal defender Gabriel has been handed a one-match ban by the Football Association after accepting a charge of improper conduct.The 24-year-old made headlines last weekend after clashing with Diego Costa and picking up a red card for kicking out at the Chelsea forward in the Gunners’ ill-tempered 2-0 defeat.The FA announced on Tuesday it had accepted Arsenal’s challenge to referee Mike Dean’s decision and withdrawn the three-match suspension, but the Brazilian defender has not escaped all punishment.Gabriel has accepted a charge of improper conduct following the fall-out from his clash with Costa and will serve a one-match ban at Leicester this weekend.The separate charge relates to his conduct after being shown the red card by referee Dean.“Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing, Arsenal defender Gabriel will serve a one-match suspension with immediate effect after he admitted an FA charge of improper conduct,” a statement from the FA read.“The charge relates to Gabriel’s behaviour following his dismissal in or around the 45th minute of the game against Chelsea on Saturday [19 September 2015].“The player, who requested a personal hearing, was also fined £10,000 and warned as to his future conduct.”The news is a blow to Arsenal ahead of the trip to in-form Leicester, but one manager Arsene Wenger admitted at the pre-match press conference he expected.“He was sorry for what happened and very disappointed, but he is a fighter and his attitude in training the whole week was completely focused and motivated,” the Gunners boss said.“If there is no punishment we are a bit lucky, if there is a punishment I have to take it.”
Re “Prop. R on ballot at least till Oct. 3” (Sept. 9): If the City Council would add a big-screen TV to all of the other cons that are included with the term-limit increase, it would almost certainly pass. We don’t have statesmen in government anymore; we have car salesmen. It’s what they want, not what’s good for the people. – Lawrence Vogelsang Tujunga AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe Christmas Truce of 1914 proved that peace is possible Ethics as a decoy Re “Prop. R on ballot at least till Oct. 3” (Sept. 9): Clearly Proposition R is City Council members’ cunning attempt to hide their self-interest in extending term limits within a desirable ethics ballot proposal. If council members are resolute for ethics reform, they could have approved such reform or placed it on the ballot on its own merit. Shamefully, the City Council elected to use “ethics” as a decoy to conceal selfish interest in extended term limits inside an ethics proposition and knowingly avoided the subject in the title. The original judge was correct in ordering the removal of this misleading proposition. The state’s 2nd District Court of Appeal has shamefully granted political favoritism to the council. If Proposition R does remain on the ballot, we the voters must defeat it soundly. – Mort Arditti Los Angeles Arnold’s remarks Re “Governor apologizes for remarks” (Sept. 9): Global warming, “hot blooded” Latinas – will Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s campaigns never end? California voters, please spare us from another four years of his disparaging leadership. – Louisa B. Caucia Montrose Fear mongering On Sunday, Sept. 10, the Daily News carried many articles about the 9-11 “terrorist attacks.” It made me wonder: Is the Daily News contributing to maintaining the fear factor among the U.S. population? Page 3 was a prime example, with its headline “New attack? Not if, but when.” Does all this mean that whatever agent of the U.S. government who planned 9-11 already has another trick up his sleeve? Enough is enough! Cut the hyperbole and the crapola. As a longtime subscriber of your newspaper (which I had considered usually fair and balanced in news coverage), I am disappointed that you have joined the fearmongers. – Bernard Soto Sherman Oaks Farm workers Re “Border crackdown rotten for farms” (Sept. 8): There’s a shortage of workers? Why don’t these farmers just drive to the local Home Depot or building-supply store and gather up a few dozen illegal immigrants who are always there looking for work? They’re there when I drive by. – John Gonzalez Saugus Many tricks Re “Gay-rights agenda has many tricks” (Their Opinions, Sept. 8): Every now and then, someone like Tad Cronn feels the need to warn the public about the wily homosexuals who seek to insinuate themselves into your nice clean lives and try to convince you that they’re as good as you – or even, as he puts it, “to hold up the gay lifestyle as a model to emulate.” This – which is utter paranoid nonsense, by the way – is what Cronn and others scornfully call “the homosexual agenda.” Of course, anti-gay pundits have their little tricks, too – like their incessant use of the long-discredited term “lifestyle” to trivialize gays’ very existence. If Cronn’s rant were about people of color “trying to pollute the white race” or Jews “conspiring to control the world through the banks,” it would never have been printed in a mainstream newspaper. – Kevin Dawson Tujunga Keep it natural Re “Chatsworth Reservoir” (Your Opinions, Sept. 10): Someone who has “an office with a view” – a view of the reservoir – would like to have it open to the public and wonders why it has not been so before. It has been tried and, happily, failed. Just look at the public parks and areas, especially if there is a body of water at the location. Look at the trash all over and the disregard for what Mother Nature has created and what some of mankind and womankind have managed to keep “natural.” I hope we never see hiking trails, picnic grounds, swings, skateboard sidewalks, etc., at Chatsworth Reservoir as it is one of a few places people have not yet been able to spoil. – Terri Andrews Castaic Politicizing 9-11 Re “Thwarting terrorism” (Your Opinions, Sept. 10): Thomas J. Reilly joins with Thomas Sowell and Ann Coulter in attacking those who lost loved ones in the 9-11 attacks, saying that they are “politicizing” their grief. I ask: Who has more right to speak up on what is done in the names of the victims than the victims themselves? Why isn’t Reilly decrying the politicizing of those attacks by Sowell and Coulter? What about President George W. Bush’s use of that tragedy to “justify” an illegal invasion that has cost the lives of thousands of American soldiers and hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqi civilians? Who is really acting irresponsibly in politicizing those deaths of 9-11? – David Holland Northridge Less commemorating Dec. 7, 1946, marked five years since the attack on Pearl Harbor. How many memorial ceremonies do you suppose there were to mark this anniversary? My guess is that more celebrations were held noting the fact that we had neutralized the militaries of Germany and Japan in less than four years. While the loss of life on Sept. 11, 2001, is still tragic five years on, we need a little less commemoration and a lot more retaliation if we are to win this war. The only thing that will eliminate a determined enemy is overwhelming force. – Mark Shipley Thousand Oaks Watching out The CBS special “Path to 9/11” was exceptionally good. I realize it was a docudrama, but so what? If it was remotely close to accuracy, then I hope we learn from our mistakes. If the bleeding hearts can’t stand the heat, then move to Pakistan – lovely place, by the way. And I am terribly sorry, but the racial profiling has to begin now. Terrorists, we know who you are, what you look like, and you’re not Irish, German, French, Spanish, Russian or from Nigeria; you’re Muslim. I know not all Muslims are bad or have a hatred like they portrayed, but many do, and we need to watch for them. As for Osama bin Laden: He’s under 100 million tons of rock, buried, and will never surface again. – Wynne Ritch Granada Hills Uncharted waters I see that former President Bill Clinton called upon ABC to tell the “truth” about 9-11. What’s next? Teddy Kennedy expounding on women’s rights or Enron’s Jeff Skilling on corporate ethics? Where was the former president’s ire over the inaccuracies and distortions of Michael Moore’s propaganda film “Fahrenheit 9/11”? I guess it depends on your definition of the truth, a territory unfamiliar to Bill Clinton – John Kurt Reseda What’s the payoff? Re “Global warming fact” (Your Opinions, Sept. 8): What is the Republican obsession with trying to disprove global warming? Conservatives have endlessly mocked left-wing conspiracy theorists on everything from the Kennedy assassination to 9-11, but when it comes to carbon-dioxide emissions destroying the planet, the right-wingers make Michael Moore look like a realist. Why would thousands of scientists around the world lie about this? How would they profit? For some ungodly reason, Republicans fight tooth and nail when it comes to their right to pollute our water and air – and destroy our future. Why? What’s the payoff? – Wil Jones Calabasas160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!
She had earlier reported that Pagan had threatened to kill her as the result of a domestic dispute and was afraid to return home by herself with her two-year-old child.As a result of the homeowner’s concern members of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department and West Baden Springs Police Department responded to the residence and entered the home with a key provided by the homeowner.The responding officers were also aware of an unrelated misdemeanor warrant for Resisting Law Enforcement that had been issued for Pagan’s arrest.When they entered the home the officers discovered Pagan was, in fact, in the home.The officers asked Pagan to surrender himself and he immediately displayed a handgun and retreated into a bedroom and locked the door.The officers did not immediately confront Pagan, opting to leave the home and establish a perimeter and summon additional assistance.Within the following hour additional members of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department and members of the Indiana State Police, inclusive of SWAT team members and state police Hostage Crisis Negotiators arrived at the scene and spoke with Pagan through the evening and early morning hours trying to encourage Pagan to peacefully surrender.As the morning of Nov. 6th drew near, Springs Valley School officials were notified to arrange for an alternate school bus route to assure safe transportation of school age children that lived within the area.Negotiations continued through the day and into the afternoon, even as Pagan made efforts to obstruct the view into the home by placing a mattress in front of a window.Despite this, the Orange County Sheriff, Josh Babcock, offered to move to a place of personal jeopardy to speak with Pagan and implore him to surrender.When it became apparent Sheriff Babcock was not going to be successful in convincing Pagan to surrender, members of the state police SWAT team removed the door from the opposite side of the home. This action was taken since it was known Pagan was on the other side of the house, and if necessary to enter the home it would make entry tactically safer for law enforcement.It is believed when Pagan heard the door being removed he retreated back into the house and one gunshot was heard from within the home.Troopers then quickly entered the home where Pagan was discovered incapacitated with what appeared to be a gunshot wound to the head.Officers at the scene began rendering first-aid to Pagan as an ambulance that was already near the scene as a safety precaution responded as well.Paramedics from the ambulance, along with a state police officer, and medical personnel from an Air Evacuation helicopter that had been summoned to the scene worked for more than 30 minutes to try and stabilize Pagan while he was in the ambulance. Despite everyone’s efforts Pagan was pronounced deceased in the ambulance.Orange County Coroner Aaron Kempe arrived at the scene and preliminarily ruled Pagan’s death as a self-inflicted single gunshot wound to the head. An autopsy for Pagan has been scheduled for Nov. 7th.Further comments about the official cause of death will be made by the Coroner at a future date once the results of the autopsy have been finalized. A 34-year-old French Lick man apparently shot himself after a standoff with police at a home in West Baden Springs. Dead is Angel L. Pagan, 34, French Lick. Monday evening at approximately 6:00 P.M., the Orange County Sheriff’s Department was called by Destiny Mitchell the homeowner of 10090 West County Road 160 North, West Baden Springs, to report that she believed Pagan.
