Coco’s house rules on ‘Probinsyano’ set Everton’s Wayne Rooney, left. celebrates scoring his side’s third goal of the game during the English Premier League soccer match at Goodison Park in Liverpool, England, Wednesday Nov. 29, 2017. ( Byrne/PA via AP)LIVERPOOL, England — Wayne Rooney claimed his first-ever hat trick for Everton with a stunning goal from his own half in a 4-0 thrashing of West Ham on Wednesday in the Premier League.Hammers goalkeeper Joe Hart unintentionally set up Rooney’s wonder strike in the 66th minute after racing out on the right-hand side of his area and sliding to end Everton’s attack. Or so he thought. Hart’s angled clearance went to Rooney who was still inside the center circle. Rooney blended control with power to send the ball traveling the entire West Ham half and over the heads of West Ham’s defense with Hart still stranded.ADVERTISEMENT It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson Hart also played a role in Rooney’s 18th-minute opener after bringing down Dominic Calvert-Lewin to give away a penalty. Rooney stepped up and sent the ball low to Hart’s right. The England goalkeeper did well to save it, only for the ball to loop back up for Rooney to easily head in an empty net.Rooney added a second goal 10 minutes later when the ball fell to him unmarked in the area and he calmly swept in a right-footed shot.West Ham had a chance to get back in the game after 58 minutes when Ashley Williams carelessly gave away a penalty after hacking Diafra Sakho down but Jordan Pickford did well to save Manuel Lanzini’s spot kick.Like Hart, Pickford dived low to his right. Unlike Hart, Pickford pushed the ball away from any danger.Ashley Williams headed in a fourth in the 78th.Everton is up to 13th with 15 points from 14 games.

A 26-year-old man was stabbed to death outside the White Castle Fish Shop, Hadfield Street, Georgetown in the wee hours of Saturday evening.Gordon Ross, 26, was reported found with multiple stab wounds to the body and four of his teeth missing. Hospital officials also claimed that he was badly beaten to the body.Crime Chief Wendell Blanhum told media operatives that an investigation has been launched into the stabbing incident, while noting that none of the man’s relatives have made contact with the Police or the hospital.He explained that based on reports, there was a crowd at the White Castle Fish Shop and the victim received several stab wounds about his body. He added that a taxi was stopped and asked to render assistance to the injured man and Ross was taken to hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries.Up to late Saturday evening, no one was arrested for the murder. However, Blanhum noted that they are attempting to make contact with the dead man’s relatives to get information about his background, and more importantly, whom he would have left home with on Friday evening.However, Guyana Times understands that a man of Rastafarian descent visited the Georgetown Public Hospital on Saturday morning to enquire about Ross but after he was told that the man had passed away, he ran out of the medical facility saying “jah rasta farai”.
CASTAIC – A long-controversial development proposal that holds the fate of a future high school got its first county governmental review Wednesday and was met with a lengthy list of concerns. Some parents, other residents and environmental advocates complained about what they called potential traffic problems and a lack of park space for the NorthLake site. Issues raised by the audience and the county staff prompted the Regional Planning Commission to continue a public hearing on the development until June20. “The commission felt that there were more issues with the proposed development than could be resolved in one hearing,” said Susan Tae, supervising regional planner. Tae said that while the commission understands the urgency in getting a new high school site, the panel is obligated to review the proposal thoroughly. Castaic resident and parent advocate Flo Lawrence said the parks are fine – if residents are in the NorthLake site. “My kids won’t be able to play in those parks,” she said. “We need something for the community.” John Kunak, a Castaic Town Council member, urged separating desires for a school from development issues. “No one is saying that we don’t want a high school. … But I am not willing to have a project with 4,000 new residences with no place for organized sports, no recreation activities, and with no other value to the community other than a high school,” he told the Daily News in an earlier interview. Rob Gapper, chief operations officer for the Hart Union High School District, said a Castaic High site is urgently needed. “We are very concerned with the delay, and there will be a point in time where we will have to decide whether we will pursue another site,” he said, adding that another site likely would cost the district more than it can afford. “The reason that NorthLake is a desirable site is it provides us with an income stream to build a school and with revenue that we will not have if we pursue a site that is not connected with a development,” he said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

This high school cannot proceed on its own because of a lack of access, and the commission realizes that is unfortunate,” Tae noted. She said the commission will immediately review only the first phase of the NorthLake proposal from developer SunCal, but this review will include all of the grading and infrastructure that would be needed to break ground on Castaic High School. Ray Pearl, SunCal’s head of development and government relations, said Wednesday’s hearing was a step in the right direction. “We knew the hearing would be continued, and we are pleased to get the formal hearing process started.” Pearl said SunCal will now meet with planners to work through concerns, and he thinks there is community support. He presented the commission with copies of more than 500 e-mails supporting the development. SunCal’s plan includes 24acres of park space: a community recreation center on 3.7acres, paseos on 4.5acres, a lake-view park with pedestrian access on 7.2acres, and 8.6acres dedicated to 14 homeowner association parks.

Photographer Gareth Wray captured this stunning image of Inishsirrer Island, a small piece of land about a mile off the coast of Gweedore.Strabane native Gareth has a passion for the Irish landscape, and frequently photographs Donegal in all of its natural beauty and shares it along with a historical context of the area.During the week he uploaded a stunning picture of Inishsirrer Island along with a few paragraphs on the history of the island. He says that the island, which now lies deserted, was once a prosperous fishing community, and although it now lays empty, remains of “abandoned cottages, shops, and a small harbour echo its bustling past.”He adds; “When I stare over this small island that is nowadays sadly left to the elements, I try to imagine how life may have been here back in the day.”“One can’t help but feel a strong sense of admiration towards its once hard working community during the good times that have now sadly long passed… but I’m sure those memories and tales will never be forgotten and will be passed down throughout the future generations.”To check out more of Gareth’s work you can find him on Facebook or on his website.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. – USC claimed it never worried the officials would end Saturday’s game with Notre Dame winning, even when fans and the Irish players stormed the field and the clock showed no time remaining. But they knew what they would do if the refs declared the game over after quarterback Matt Leinart fumbled at the 1-yard line. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week “I heard the whistle blow, I wasn’t really worried about it, but I saw the fans,” he said. Leinart scored the winning touchdown on the next play. Reed out: Tailback Desmond Reed tore knee ligaments on a kickoff return and is expected to miss the rest of the season. Reed’s knee got stuck in the grass, which was extra high at Notre Dame Stadium and irked the Trojans’ tailbacks. “I think that’s what happened,” White said. “It definitely affected me,” tailback Reggie Bush added. “A couple plays, I pushed off and I got stuck. They obviously did it on purpose.” The only other injury for USC was cornerback Alex Gomez’s broken thumb. Go for the green: Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis had the Irish don green jerseys for the first time since Nov. 2, 2002. Notre Dame dropped to 3-4 overall in green jerseys but was 3-0 against USC in that color before Saturday. The move was such a surprise, Notre Dame managers didn’t even know. “They didn’t even tell us, I saw them put them out before the game and I went, ‘Are you serious?’ ” one manager said. Weis said he made the jerseys during the summer. “I thought maybe if we made it to a bowl game, it would be a nice way to fire the kids up,” Weis said. “This game was like a bowl game. If you could have seen how fired up when they went back into the locker room and saw them.” Special guests: Oaks Christian of Westlake Village quarterback Jimmy Clausen and tailback Marc Tyler attended the game as guests of Notre Dame after flying to Chicago following Friday night’s victory over Fillmore. “I don’t really have a favorite team,” Tyler said. “I just like players.” Longest play: Bush’s zigzagging is becoming well-known in every game, but he outdid himself on a punt in the second quarter. He ran 20 seconds off the clock eluding Irish defenders and ended up losing 11 yards on the play. Also: USC won its 14th straight game over an Associated Press top 25 team. … The Trojans have won 39 of their past 40 games, 40 of the past 42, 42 of 45 and 46 of 50. Pete Carroll is now 48-9 overall at USC. … The Trojans trailed at halftime six times during their 28-game winning streak. … USC has allowed two punt returns for touchdowns this season. … USC gained a season-low 476 yards against the Irish. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
