76ers to meet with LeBron James’ agent

first_imgView comments But the 33-year-old has interests beyond basketball and the massive Los Angeles market would give him a bigger stage and platform.The Lakers have a young, talented but inexperienced roster and they were hoping to land both James and possibly George. But the All-Star forward opted to stick with the Thunder and will sign a four-year deal when teams are permitted to finalize contracts on June 6.George’s choice could sway James to sign a short-term deal with Cleveland, but the Lakers are determined to get their hands on the four-time MVP.The Cavs, on the other hand, have been mostly operating in the dark. While there had been dialogue between Paul and Altman since the season ended, James had not given the team any sense of his plans. That’s made it tough for Cleveland to upgrade its roster, but the Cavs remain committed to bringing back James even for just one more year.On Friday, James formally became a free agent when he informed the Cavs he would not exercise his $35.6 million contract option for next season, making him an unrestricted free agent and the prize catch in the 2018 class.Now that some of the early dust has settled, the battle for him appears to be down to two teams: Cleveland vs. Los Angeles.Home vs. Hollywood.Wine-and-gold vs. Purple-and-gold.But while the Cavs and Lakers appear to be the front-runners for James, the Sixers aren’t ready to give up the fight. Well, at least young and outspoken center Embiid isn’t.Embiid posted a message on Twitter that seemed to be directed at No. 23 and what it might be like to walk in the footsteps of Lakers legends like Johnson, Kobe Bryant, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Wilt Chamberlain, Jerry West and Shaquille O’Neal. LATEST STORIES Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding James, who returned to Los Angeles from vacation Saturday before NBA free agency opened, will not take part in the meeting, the person said.The Sixers can offer James a chance to play alongside budding, young stars Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid as well as stay in the Eastern Conference, where the path to the NBA Finals is far easier than out West.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 crownPhiladelphia hasn’t hid its desire to land James, a three-time champion who would instantly make the club a championship contender. Earlier this season, James was flattered when a Pennsylvania company paid for three billboards in Ohio urging James to come to Philadelphia, where the club has been abiding by a “Trust The Process” mantra while rebuilding.Earlier Sunday, James had contact with the Cleveland Cavaliers, who are hoping to hang onto the best player in franchise history.

The 76ers defeated the Cavaliers 132-130. Mitchell Leff/Getty Images/AFPCLEVELAND — The Philadelphia 76ers are getting a chance to pitch their process to LeBron James.Representatives from the team will meet Sunday with James’ agent Rich Paul in Los Angeles, a person familiar with the plans told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the talks.ADVERTISEMENT Shortly after the 12:01 EDT a.m. start to free agency, Cavs general manager Koby Altman spoke on the phone to both James and Paul, the person said.James is also being pursued by the Lakers, who have enough salary-cap space to sign him and another star player.While there was a feverish flurry of activity involving big-named players in the opening hour of what has been billed as the Summer of LeBron, James did not announce where he’ll play next season and it’s not known if other moves, such as Paul George staying in Oklahoma City and Chris Paul staying in Houston, have affected his thinking.The meeting with the 76ers was first reported by ESPN.James isn’t expected to drag his choice out over several days. He knows what he wants and he’s very familiar with the Cavaliers after leading them to four straight NBA Finals since returning as a free agent in 2014 following four seasons in Miami. Because they own his “Bird rights” the Cavs can offer James more money than any other team — a five-year, $207 million deal.ADVERTISEMENT In fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’ Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Ambassador Sulunteh Identifies with Victims in Bong

first_imgShare this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) Liberia’s Ambassador to the United States, Canada and Mexico, Jeremiah C. Sulunteh, has donated 300 bags of 25kg rice to be distributed among Ebola-affected families and quarantined households in Bong County.Taylor-Town in Yellequlleh District and Barleketela in Salala District which were obstructed by the leadership of Bong County almost two weeks ago to control the spread of the deadly virus, received the bulk of the donation with one hundred bags of rice going to each of the affected districts.The Friends of Sulunteh leader in Bong County, John O. Flomo, asked representatives of the towns to convey Ambassador Sulunteh’s heartfelt condolences to the families who have lost loved ones to the disease.He said, though Amb. Sulunteh was far away and could not meet with the people on the ground, he however could hear their loud cry for support during this very difficult time.“Ambassador Sulunteh would have loved to be in Taylor-Town and speak directly to his people, but it is not possible now,”Mr.  Flomo said.He disclosed that since the outbreak of the virus in Liberia, Amb. Sulunteh has been looking critically at areas where he could intervene adding that the plight of Ebola affected families is one of those situations which almost moved him to tears.He said that recent media reports which brought to light the sufferings of Ebola suspects in some parts of the county  who went without food supplies for days and who are rationed four-cups of rice to each household a day when it is available regardless of their number, was key to his decision to get involved and assist.Mr. Flomo expressed the hope that the Ambassador’s intervention will draw the attention of the international community to the plight of those Ebola affected families and quarantined households in the county. He noted that people in quarantined homes left to starve will have serious implications for the Ebola fight. Flomo called on the international community, particularly WFP to focus on the feeding of Ebola affected persons and quarantined households.He pleaded with chiefs in the district and the county task force to urge the people of Taylor-Town and Barleketela to not only take maximum care to prevent infection, but to move vigorously to eradicate the Ebola virus entirely from their various communities.The disease, he lamented, has disrupted normal economic and social activities throughout the country and called on all Liberians to adhere to the Ebola key prevention messages to save lives and maintain the dignity of our country.Flomo, on behalf of the Liberian Ambassador, expressed the hope that the remaining one hundred bags of rice will go to Ebola affected families and quarantined households in other affected districts like Jorquelleh, Sanoyea, Salala and Fuamah maintaining that Sulunteh was also considering support to other vulnerable groups in the near future.Responding, the Town Chief of Taylor-Town, Peter Flomo, registered on behalf of the people of the area his profound thanks and appreciation for the timely intervention of Ambassador Sulunteh which he said would go a long way in alleviating the suffering of the people.He said the people of the area are not surprised at such intervention, noting that Sulunteh has always come to the rescue of the suffering people not only in Bong but Liberians generally.He assured Sulunteh that the people of Taylor-Town deeply appreciate the gesture which he said is coming at a time when it is needed the most and assured him that the donation will be used for the intended purpose.Yellequlleh District Commissioner Annie Reeves also expressed thanks and appreciation, saying that the people of the district consider Ambassador Sulunteh as one of their sons. Similar sentiments were expressed by Salala District Commissioner Karmon Kanneh.The donation is Amb. Sulunteh’s second intervention since the Ebola outbreak in March.It can be recalled that in September Amb. Sulunteh provided over three hundred bags of rice, an undisclosed amount of United States Dollars worth of disinfectants and cash donation to community residents and various taskforces in Bong, Margibi and Monsterrado Counties.last_img read more

Residents launch recall of Montebello councilmembers

first_imgMONTEBELLO – A group of Montebello residents has given official notice to three Montebello city councilmembers that they are launching a recall campaign against them. Representing Montebello Citizens for Honest Government, Anna Arriola hand-delivered a “notice of intent” to circulate a petition to the council majority of Mayor Norma Lopez-Reid, Bob Bagwell and Jeff Siccama at Wednesday’s meeting. Arriola said she and other residents were angry at the council’s actions in firing numerous department heads since they took power in the 2005 elections. “People feel fear and are uneasy with all these firings because there’s no discussion by the council about it,” Arriola said. “They never explain themselves, even though I ask a million questions. This machine that Norma formed has brought change too fast for the people. They feel threatened that the city is being destroyed.” Councilman Jeff Siccama said he supports the democratic right of the group to take action, but vowed not to be swayed in his efforts to make change that he thinks is best for the city. “I know I can’t make everybody happy,” Siccama said Thursday. “But I won’t get bullied into going against my principals and taking the city in a new direction like I promised.” 165Let’s talk business.Catch up on the business news closest to you with our daily newsletter.

Small blaze sparks action

first_imgCaregivers moved patients lying in rolling beds and sitting in wheelchairs, taking them down an incline and into the shade at the front of the hospital. A few elderly women in the rolling beds had linen over their heads to protect them from the sun. With everyone in the shade, caregivers stood by patients and attended to their needs. Patient Angelique Wynn, 27, who was in a wheelchair, said she went to sleep with a migraine and was awakened by nurses saying there was a fire. “I thought I was dreaming at first,” she said. “I’m upset because my dad’s going to come here and he’s going to freak when he sees all these cops.” Workers had been stripping paint from the roof with heat guns when the fire started, English said. Small portions of the roof and attic burned, and the fire caused about $85,000 in damage, she said. alex.dobuzinskis@dailynews.com NEWHALL – Workers stripping paint at the Santa Clarita Convalescent Hospital sparked a small fire Tuesday that forced the evacuation of nearly 100 patients, authorities said. The fire started about 1:45 p.m., and was quickly extinguished, said Stephanie English, a spokeswoman for the county Fire Department. Most of the building was still inhabitable, so by 3:15 p.m. nearly all the 92 patients at the hospital were moved back inside. About 15 patients were moved to nearby facilities operated by the company that runs the hospital, and two who needed life support were taken to Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital, English said.

OCEAN FM RAN UP HUGE LOSSES AFTER TAKING OVER FROM US – COAST FM

first_imgTHE company which once ran Ireland’s most successful radio station says it can make it a profitable franchise once again.Coast FM, owned by Mid-West Radio and who once had the franchise to cover south Donegal as North West Radio, has taken part in its latest bid to unseat Ocean FM from the radio dial.Both stations made pitches at a public hearing in Sligo yesterday. Former Donegal footballer Martin McHugh is among those backing the Coast FM bid.In its submission Coast FM said it had turned had profits of €970,000 during its 14 years as the franchise provider.However since Ocean FM won the franchise in controversial circumstances a decade ago, it has recorded losses of €765,300.It also said market share levels have slumped from an average of 51% in 2003 when North West had the license to just 29% in 2013 under Ocean FM. Coast FM claimed a “serious disconnect” has occurred between listeners in Sligo, North Leitrim and South Donegal in its local radio station in the last ten years.The new group says its primary objective is to provide a broad-format radio service targeting all adults with a particular focus on those over 25.It will also have an emphasis on “what’s Irish and local” and will implement “urgent and remedial strategies to increase listenership.”It plans to share relevant programming with Mid West Radio which it also owns, saying this worked well when North West Radio was on air.For its part Ocean FM says that what it is doing today “is the optimum mix” and “right for the tastes and interest of our audience.” It says it is the smallest local station in the country but its commitment to high-quality content has made it one of the most decorated.Ocean said it wanted to diversify its business to include new digital media.The submission lists the 24 shareholders of North West Broadcasting Ltd which trades as Ocean FM.More than 85% of the shares are held by eight individuals. These are: Padraig O’Dwyer (23.5%) of Letterkenny, CEO of River Media; John Keon (6.19%), Ballyshannon businessman; Ocean FM CEO Tim Collins (14.64%); Car dealer Martin Reilly (14.78%); Pat Clifford of Clifford Electrical (11.75%); Sean Grant (5.84%), a lecturer and consultant from Letterkenny; Tony Porter (4.23%), chartered accountant from Rosses Point; Noel Shannon (4.27%) from Newbridge, Communications Manager with Irish Water.OCEAN FM RAN UP HUGE LOSSES AFTER TAKING OVER FROM US – COAST FM was last modified: April 29th, 2014 by John2Share 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:BAIcoast fmocean fmradio licenselast_img read more

DONEGAL LEAGUE: ALL YOUR REPORTS, RESULTS AND FIXTURES

first_imgDonegal Junior LeagueReports Glencar Inn Saturday Division TwoMilford United Reserves 4 Drumbar F.C. 0Milford secured a welcome three points with this comfortable home win. Milford started off well and created several good chances without testing the keeper. On twenty minutes Drumbar had a header cleared off the line from a corner. Milford went ahead through Ciaran Blaney. Blaney scored his second on the half hour, cooly finishing from close range. The third came after Drumbar failed to clear from a corner and Meckin fired to the top corner. The second half was a poor affair with Milford content and Drumbar failing to create much. Blaney rounded off his hat-trick with a delicate chip over the keeper to complete a good home win.Ramelton Mariners 2 Strand Rovers 2 Ramelton Mariners hosted Saturday League Two leaders Strand Rovers in this clash at Rab’s Park, Kerrykeel. Ricky Fisher scored the first goal in this rip-roaring tie. Both sides may be happy with a point especially with the Maghery men twice coming from behind to equalise.Cathal Boyle equalised on 56 minutes. Mariners then went ahead again through Corey Mc Cahill but Strand got a deserved leveller with nine minutes to go through David McCarron.Team efforts from both sidesBrian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionRathmullan Celtic 1 Drumoghill F.C. 2Rathmullan Celtic took an early lead, after soaking up some pressure, on 12 minutes when midfield maestro Marty McDaid powered home a thunderous header from a Kevin McDaid corner. It was a nip and tuck battle with the Hoops creating chances which they would later rue. Ephrim Mc Fadden and Kevin McGrath were both guilty of putting goal chances wide inside the area while Dara Patton saw his strike well saved by the Drumoghill shot stopper Paul McCauley on 42 minutes. With these missed opportunities, the visitors sensed an opening and just on the stroke of half time David Shovlin managed to back heel an equaliser inside the six yard box after a goal mouth scramble. In the second half McFadden was denied by a world class save from Drumoghill’s sub keeper Paul Harley, who replaced Mc Auley at half time. Almost immediately after that save Connolly mesmerised on the right wing before setting Patton thorough but he saw his effort go perilously wide of Harley’s right post. With the game entering the final quarter Drumoghill broke free. Shovlin was upended outside the box with a free kick the outcome. Terence Shields unleashed a pulsating strike from 23 yards out which thundered off the underside of the crossbar to break the hearts of the Hoops and win the high octane clash. Referee: Marty Mc Garrigle Cranford United 3 Lifford Celtic 3Cranford started the game the brightest and took the lead when Kyle Black put Seami Friel through and he finished well. Lifford grew into the game and equalised half way through the half through a Gethins’ goal. The second half was equally contested again and Cranford went ahead again through Kyle Black after a mix up in the box. Again Lifford pushed forward and equalised through a free header following a corner. Cranford went ahead for a third time, with ten minutes remaining, through a Seami Friel goal, his second of the game. Cranford tried to hold on for the win but Lifford equalised again through a Ryan Connolly goal that looked offside but the goal was given and the points were shared. Best for Cranford were Seami Friel and Kielan Mc Elwaine. Team effort from Lifford.Milford United 1 Kildrum Tigers 1Milford United suffered from another late equaliser on Sunday when they conceded in the 90th minute when Farmer headed home a right wing cross. In a hard fought victory, with both teams putting in good honest work after the Christmas Break, the best chance of the first half fell to Joey Cullen in the 1st minute but John Roulston blocked his shot on the line. Milford took the lead on 75 minutes when Roulston failed to hold Gary Merritt’s free kick and Mark Flood was quickest to react to tap home. As Milford looked like securing all three points they failed to clear the ball a cross was delivered and well headed home by Farmer the big Kildrum striker. Good effort by both teams. Gweedore Celtic 1 Glenea United 1Gweedore Celtic and Glenea United had to settle for a share of the spoils at An Screaban in this local derby on Sunday. Both teams will be happy with the point especially the home team having to play most of the second half with only ten men. Glenea dominated early on but could not break down a resolute defence well marshalled by Paul Mc Bride and Joe Bonar. Darren Mc Geever and Mc Glanaghey spurned good chances for the away team whilst at the other end Dan Mc Bride and Damien O’ Sullivan had chances for Celtic. The second half opened with Colin Ferry and Thomas Diver causing more problems for the Glenea defence and Mc Geever was a threat to the home team. The game changed in the 55th minute when Celtic were reduced to ten men following a second yellow for full back Mc Garvey. Despite this set back it was Gweedore who responded positively when Paul Gallagher’s speculative lob was fumbled to the net by Joe Coll. After this the away team took the game to Gweedore but despite dominating possession they could not carve out an opening. It took staunch defending and a number of fine saves from Mc Kelvey to keep the lead. The equaliser finally arrived with 8minutes remaining when Kevin Mulhern turned home Mc Geever’s cross. After that both teams seemed to settle for the point .Before the game a minutes silence was held in memory of James Gallagher who lost his life the previous Sunday. Best for Celtic were Devine, Dan & Paul Mc Bride and Joe Bonar. For Glenea Mulhern, Mc Geever and Gallagher stood out. Referee: Kevin Logue.Watson Hire Division OneGweedore United 1 Lagan Harps 4This game played in Carrickboyle saw the visitors claim the 3 points after a good second half performance from a highly confident Lagan side. The home side got off to a good start playing good football with a number of early chances however it was Lagan who opened the scoring in the 11th minute against the run of play when Chris Toner tapped in from close range. United continued to play well with good chances falling to Francis Gallagher and Ciaran Mc Fadden however Damien Mc Fadden in the Lagan nets did well on each occasion. The home side got a deserved equaliser in the 39th minute when Michael Connolly scored from close range following a good free kick by Paul Duggan. In the second half Lagan got an early goal when a defensive mix up and a deflected cross from Austin Marron rolled over the line to make it 2-1 in the 52nd minute. United responded fairly well with Odhran Molloy hitting the cross-bar and Michael Connolly also going close but it just wasn’t United’s day. Ciaran Mc Fadden then hit the post in the 72nd minute for the home side. The visitors extended their lead in the 75th minute when Stephen O’ Donnell hit a good shot from 25 yards into the top corner of the net. In the 88th minute Chris Toner made it 4-1 when he chipped the United keeper from close range. Chris Toner and Conal Mc Conigley played well for Lagan. Referee: Michael ConnollyKilmacrennan Celtic 2 Keadue Rovers 0Kilmacrennan started off brightly in a game that was switched to Ballyare. They could have taken an early lead after Aidan Sweeney was sent clear but Keadue’s keeper came out on top. Keadue sprung to life after this with a few efforts on goal but neither side could break the deadlock in an evenly contested first half. Kilmacrennan dominated the start of the second half and their efforts were rewarded in the 69th minute after a good ball from substitute Aidan Friel found the head of the prolific Garry Gorman who’s header gave the Keadue’s keeper no chance. Keadue pressed hard but Kilmac’s back four held out complimented with a great performance from Darren Toland. Kilmacrennan were denied a second goal when Christy Conaghan’s shot came back of the post. Kilmac then deservedly doubled their lead in the 88th minute after a pin-point ball from Kevin Mc Menamin found Declan O’Donnell at the back post and he headed the ball back across goal to the inrushing Aidan Sweeney who in turn had no trouble finding the back of the net.Keadue continued to play their game and came close to halving the deficit with a shot that struck the underside of the crossbar. Both teams played well in what was an entertaining game in difficult playing conditions. Best for Kilmacrennan: Christy Conaghan, Seamy Peoples. Best for Keadue: Team performance. Referee: Michael MulhernCT Ball Division TwoBallybofey United 0 Deele Harps 2Emmet Catterson and Darren Gillespie got the goals that won this match for Deele Harps. Having lost regular goalkeeper Willie Curran during the pre-match warm-up Deele probably though that a draw would be a very good return from their trip to Ballybofey United, who had been in decent form prior to the Christmas break. The securing of all three points was not alone a great boost to their season but reward for a performance against the odds. Ballybofey dominated the first half without making a breakthrough and when Gillespie flighted Deele’s second home from the halfway line, with the home keeper out of position, the writing was a on the wall for the hosts. It is back to the drawing board for Ballybofey if they want to quickly get their promotion push back on track while Deele will look to build on this victory.ResultsGlencar Inn Saturday Division TwoMilford United Reserves 4 v 0 Drumbar F.C.Ramelton Mariners 2 v 2 Strand RoversSunday 04-01-2015Brian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionRathmullan Celtic 1 v 2 Drumoghill F.C.Cranford United 3 v 3 Lifford CelticMilford United 1 v 1 Kildrum TigersGweedore Celtic 1 v 1 Glenea UnitedWatson Hire Division OneGweedore United 1 v 4 Lagan HarpsKilmacrennan Celtic 2 v 0 Keadue RoversCT Ball Division TwoBallybofey United 0 v 2 Deele HarpsFixturesSaturday 10-01-2015 K.O. 2p.m. (Unless Stated)Downtown CupArranmore United v Strand Rovers ( k.o. 1p.m. )Milford United Reserves v Glenree United ReservesRamelton Mariners v Mulroy CelticCranford United Reserves v Glencar CelticKeadue Rovers Reserves v Glenea United ReservesCastlefin Celtic Reserves v Tullyvinney RoversOrchard F.C. v Curragh Athletic ReservesErne Wanderers v Drumbar F.C.Fintown Harps AFC v St. Catherines ReservesSunday 11-01-2015Brian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionMilford United v Rathmullan CelticKildrum Tigers v Donegal TownGlenea United v St. CatherinesCranford United v Gweedore CelticCappry Rovers v Drumoghill F.C.Watson Hire Division OneWhitestrand United v Copany RoversKeadue Rovers v Dunkineely CelticLagan Harps v Castlefin CelticKerrykeel ’71 F.C. v Curragh AthleticCT Ball Division TwoDeele Harps v Bonagee UnitedLetterbarrow Celtic v Raphoe TownBallybofey United v Glenree UnitedEany Celtic v Convoy ArsenalDONEGAL LEAGUE: ALL YOUR REPORTS, RESULTS AND FIXTURES was last modified: January 4th, 2015 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:Donegal Leaguelast_img read more
