first_img Share By Pamela Cody Special to the PRESSThe City of Port Isabel is using this logo on t-shirts they are selling at this weekend’s “Pachanga in the Park” event. Courtesy of City of Port Isabel.Port Isabel City Manager Jared Hockema relayed several announcements to the City Commissioners on Tuesday evening, regarding the ongoing fight against liquified natural gas (LNG) companies and a lawsuit against the city.Several LNG companies have been pursuing tax abatements and air permit applications from the city of Port Isabel, who have continued to steadily refuse and deny their attempts to do business in the area. On Tuesday evening, Hockema updated the city commission on the latest developments, as well as unveiled a new anti-LNG slogan. “We’re going to be having a hearing with the LNG in our case against the Rio Grande LNG on Thursday in Brownsville, and on Friday we’ll be traveling to Austin with our attorney for the mediation with that LNG company regarding that ongoing litigation.”Hockema continued, “We will also be having a booth at our Pachanga in the Park, regarding our opposition to LNG. As you know, (the Cameron County) commissioner’s court has an item on the agenda, I believe for next Tuesday or Wednesday, regarding the tax abatements for one of the LNG companies. So, we’re going to be selling shirts and bumper stickers at our pachanga, and they’re going to have a message on there that we’re going to be conveying to the commissioner’s court, which is “Don’t Pass the Gas, Say No to LNG.”Hockema also relayed news a lawsuit filed against the City of Port Isabel. “Speaking of litigation, once again, the city of Port Isabel has prevailed in a frivolous lawsuit. We had been sued by a local individual under A-Pro Towing and that lawsuit was dismissed with prejudice by the U.S. District Judge. So, that’s the second one in a row we’ve won in federal court in the last couple of months. So we’re very happy about that, that’s another problem that’s been solved.”Want the whole story?

first_imgCOLUMBIA, S.C. — Vanderbilt squandered a chance to pick up its first SEC win, falling 19-10 to South Carolina Saturday. Here are five observations from the Commodores’ loss.Turnovers getting worse: The offseason emphasis on limiting turnovers is wearing off. Vanderbilt committed five  against South Carolina after giving up three against MTSU in the previous game. The Commodores now have a turnover margin of minus-9, by far the worst in the SEC. Johnny McCrary has thrown 10 interceptions in 232 attempts, or one pick for every 23.2 passes. He tossed eight interceptions in 152 passes last season, or one pick for every 19 attempts.Defense carries load, again: There doesn’t appear to be any finger-pointing, but the defense continues to outshine the offense by a wide margin. The five turnovers resulted in three field goals and two punts thanks to some stingy play by the defense. The Commodores also contributed two takeaways — Stephen Weatherly’s fumble recovery and Jahmel McIntosh’s interception — but the offense did nothing with either opportunity.Vanderbilt doomed by turnovers in loss to South CarolinaMcCrary is the guy: Heard this one before? No matter what obstacles come, McCrary appears to be Vanderbilt’s quarterback for the foreseeable future. The patience of coach Derek Mason and offensive coordinator Andy Ludwig has been tested, and they’ve stuck with him. At MTSU, they left him in, and McCrary helped deliver a comeback in the final minutes. And when he piled up four turnovers in the second half Saturday, the coaches never flinched. He’s here to stay.Is Sims new “emphasis”? Darrius Sims rushed for a career-high 104 yards on just six carries and added three catches for 22 yards. He had runs of 29 and 41 yards and looked to be more of an option for Ludwig, who promised to “shift emphasis” in his offense in the final seven games. Sims said he learned more of the playbook during the off week and hopes to be utilized in multiple ways moving forward.SPANNING THE SEC: Check in for the latest news, notes, scores and more for one of college football’s best conferences! More receivers not better: Nine Vanderbilt players caught at least one pass for the third time this season, but there were no big individual performances or deep balls. Since having  a Vanderbilt record 240 receiving yards against Austin Peay, Trent Sherfield has been solid, but he was held to just two catches against South Carolina. The Commodores need a big-play threat in the passing game. If it’s not Sherfield, who is it?Reach Adam Sparks at 615-259-8010 and on Twitter @AdamSparks.

first_imgCOLUMBIA – Their smiling faces were side by side in the weekly University of South Carolina media notes, and the duo often found itself bookending the offensive line in two-tight end formations.But with Rory “Busta” Anderson’s injury-plagued season over, Jerell Adams has seen his workload — and his importance to USC’s offense — increase.“I’m getting a lot more reps in practice — a lot more,” Adams said as the Gamecocks prepared for Saturday’s game against Miami in the Duck Commander Independence Bowl in Shreveport, Louisiana.Adams, a junior, has a career-high 20 catches for 274 yards this season. He started four games as Anderson struggled with triceps problems that culminated in a season-ending injury against Clemson on Nov. 29.“I’ve got to be more of a leader, knowing that Busta’s hurt,” Adams said. “It feels pretty good to get more reps. Hopefully it carries over to game time.”While additional responsibilities are given to Adams on offense, there’s a special teams task that won’t be taken away. The 6-foot-6, 242-pounder has been a fixture on kickoff coverage this season.“I like doing it,” Adams said.USC hopes to end disappointing season on a positive note in Independence Bowl.He compared sprinting down the field on a kickoff to catching a ball over the middle.“You’re doing the hitting, so it’s a big difference,” Adams said. “You don’t have to worry about five people coming at you.”He said the opportunity came when the coaching staff gave an open invitation to the team.“We have tryouts for kickoff, if you want to go down and hit somebody,” Adams recalled. “So I tried out and I made it.”Adams has registered four tackles this season. His combination of size, speed and willingness to hit creates an intriguing matchup against a Hurricanes linebacker corps led by NFL prospect Denzel Perryman.“Miami looked pretty good on film,” Adams said. “Hopefully I’ll get the best of them.”The Gamecocks’ offense lines up in a variety of formations, using anywhere from no tight ends to three. Adams and Anderson would often be on the field together.“We know we don’t have that” for the bowl game, said co-offensive coordinator Steve Spurrier Jr.Sometimes Anderson would be joined by Cody Gibson, converted to tight end from offensive tackle.“Cody Gibson’s done a good job in there in what his role will be,” Spurrier Jr. said.Lacking Anderson, the Gamecocks have had to eliminate some of their two-tight-end packages, according to Spurrier Jr.“Jerrell’s certainly a talented player and we’ve got a lot of stuff in for him,” he said. “We’re spotting him around the field to give him an opportunity to make a difference in this game.”Mike Davis to opt for NFL after Independence Bowl.last_img read more

first_imgBarcelona want to offload the midfielder and earlier reports suggested the Toffees and West Ham United are vying to sign the player.Two days ago, we covered a report from Mundo Deportivo, who explained the 25-year-old has agreed personal terms with the Merseyside club.It was also claimed the Hammers are willing to offer more than Marco Silva’s side are ready to pay the La Liga winners for the player.Saturday’s edition of the same newspaper has a report on the former Valencia man and it’s stated Gomes ‘may be the first to leave’ the Camp Nou in the summer transfer window.Both clubs are mentioned again.Embed from Getty ImagesManuel Pellegrini’s side completed the signing of Pablo Fornals from Villarreal on Friday and therefore, in principle, Everton have ‘no competition’ in securing Gomes’ services on a permanent transfer. Mundo states Everton are trying to lower the price as Barca are demanding €30m for Gomes. Apart from that, the Spanish champions and the English side ‘agree on almost everything’ for the midfielder to return to Goodison Park.With Barca wanting to offload Gomes and the latter and Everton keen for the transfer to go through, there is a hope the deal could be completed soon.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Strategy Game is AddictiveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoDating.comTop Successful Single Men in Tung ChungDating.comUndo熱門話題小心會長過頭…網友推爆:「真的長得超誇張!」熱門話題UndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoMisterStocksThese Hilarious Photos Were Captured On The SubwayMisterStocksUndoKeto减肥1個簡單的妙招一夜「融化」腹部贅肉(今晚試試)Keto减肥UndoSmart Tech TrendOver 55?

first_imgThere’s a claim in the Spanish media that Norwich City loanee Ibrahim Amadou is on the verge of leaving the Premier League side. The Cameroon international joined the Canaries on loan during the last transfer window from Sevilla, but he’s hardly figured since his arrival at Carrow Road.Estadio Deportivo have reported on the latest developments regarding Amadou’s future with Norwich City and they say he’s close to signing for La Liga side Leganes.It’s claimed Leganes have a good relationship with his parent club Sevilla and this should help to get a deal over the line, with Norwich City also agreeing to the transfer.Amadou signed for the Premier League side on a season long loan deal, with an option to buy, but it seems his stay at the club is coming to an end.He’s made just 11 league appearances for the English side and could move on before the deadline to get regular first team football elsewhere.NDby Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must Have.Forge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoCNN with DBS BankThe New Role Banks Are PlayingCNN with DBS BankUndoSmart Tech TrendOver 55?

first_imgThe Merseyside derby, which will be played at Goodison Park on Sunday, has been given some extra spice by Richarlison’s comments. Speaking to Youtube channel Desimpedidos, the Brazilian had a lot to say about the rivalry between Everton and Liverpool.His quotes have been widely covered, but ended up also being twisted or cut a little bit. So we thought it’d be better to put his statements in full, all in the same story.It started with journalist Bolívia asking Richarlison about the derby, quizzing him if the rivalry is like ones in Brazil.“Ah, I think even bigger. The rivalry is very heavy. When it’s derby day here, the city stops. Whoever wins has a party and whoever loses goes to the coffin. Here it’s like that,” said Richarlison.“Last year we lost in the 94th minute, it was a huge disappointment because we were doing well in the league, we were fighting for a Champions League spot, and suddenly that defeat came. The dressing room was bad. That defeat came and the team lost confidence, we started losing some games. So the derby here is very important to win during the year.”Asked if Liverpool are the most hated team in the Premier League, he said: “Oh, I don’t know. I think so. Also because the guys come from a good sequence, they are fighting every year for the Premier League, just like Manchester City, last year they won the Champions League. So it’s a team that everyone wants to beat.”Embed from Getty ImagesThen Richarlison was asked if Virgil van Dijk is as good as people say, and contrary to many reports, the Everton player did say good things about the Liverpool defender.“Yeah. People talk a lot about him. He’s a great defender, yes, but I’ve dribbled past him, see? I’ve gone past hm. He was chosen there among the three best in the world, with good reason, he had an excellent season last year. Great defender, yes, I have to agree. But I think there are better defenders.“Thiago Silva, Marquinhos on the same level. Another one? Sérgio Ramos.”Then Bolívia mentioned that Richarlison and Van Dijk came face to face in a recent derby, and asked him if things had got ugly, if he’d exchange punches with the Dutchman, or if he’s too big.“Oh, I could (laughs). Am I running away? Running is worse, right? It’s part of the derby. The derby here is tough. I was trying to win a little time by getting into trouble. It didn’t help, they scored the goal in the last minute.”Regarding an argument he had with Trent Alexander-Arnold in another derby, Richarlison said: “Yeah. That was another game. The referee had already whistled and I made a slide tackle. He jumped up and left his foot on my thigh and I had to face him so I wouldn’t leave it aside. “I only got to his face, because last year I only touched the guy like that, I was sent off and I was suspended for three games. I learned from the mistake”.Richarlison was also asked if he plans to move to a club in the top six next season. He says he’s been receiving offers, but is happy to stay at Everton.“Several proposals arrived in the middle of the season. Barcelona, Manchester.”Asked if they were concrete offers, with contract length and salary, he confirmed it.“Yes. And then the club decided to hold on because I also didn’t want to leave the team like that in the middle of the season. It’s bad to leave your teammates like that. I even renewed the contract. I’m happy here, I prefer to stay here.”Questioned if he was moved by Barcelona’s interest, he said: “Oh, absolutely. Barcelona, right, man. One of the biggest teams in the world. Of course it moves us, but I think the happiness part weighs a little.”by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameThe Most Addictive Game of the Year 2019Forge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoHero WarsGetting this Treasure is impossible!

Tampa hockey players, who had already done it twice after 0: 1 and 1: 3, failed to play again.Nelson received a pass from Bovillier, which he managed to do so only a second time after catching the puck in the opponent’s area, and sent the puck past Tampabeja goalkeeper Andrejs Vasilevskis.Jean Gabriel Pažo hit the puck into the empty net 36 seconds before the end of the match. After the last goal, “Islanders” player Matt Martin and Tampabeja hockey player Barkley Gudrov managed to draw their hands, ending the mini-fight with Martin’s advantage.In the NHL quarantine “bubble” at the Islanders goal in Edmonton, 34 opponents’ throws were stopped by goalkeeper Semyon Varlamov, while Vasilevsky dealt with 31 opponents.Lightning, whose goal was scored by Sergachev, Ondrome Chamber and Tyler Johnson, broke a series of six victories.The Tampa Bay team is striving to reach their first Stanley Cup final since 2015.“Lightning” had to play without right-back forward Alex Kornorn, who was disqualified for an unauthorized technique by hitting Nelson on board in the second game. Tampabeja also missed Breidena Pointa, his main center-scoring goalkeeper, who was injured.The Dallas Stars will meet the Vegas Golden Knights on Saturday. In the series with a 2-1 lead is the “Stars”.Toronto and Edmonton first hosted a 24-team elimination tournament, with the Stanley Cup continuing with 16 units.
