IS IT TRUE Attorney Scott Danks has been selected to be the next chairman of the Vanderburgh County Democratic Party?…Danks as it turns out was the only candidate to file for the office by the Wednesday deadline, but he still needs to get some votes to be installed as Chairman?… He will be running against “none of the above” in the caucus of Democrat precinct committee members?…with Democratic and liberal activists across the nation resorting to absurd stunts like showing their bare butts to a building and bashing out windows to express their distaste for the newly elected President Donald J. Trump, the Democrat Party is in need of some mature leadership?…the City County Observer believes that Scott Danks is a good man for the job as he has shown wisdom and good judgement to go with his well known tenacity?…the Democrats on a national level would be well served to get other people like Scott Danks into leadership positions and repudiate the street idiocy that seems to ignite somewhere nearly every day?…we wish Scott and the Vanderburgh County Democrat Party much success in being a good example of how to be an informed opposition instead of an inflamed one?…if at the national level the Democrats do not cease behaving like spoiled adolescents, they risk being out of power in all three branches of government for the foreseeable future?IS IT TRUE it has been several days since the Merit Commission concluded its hearings into the actions of three EPD officers during the arrest of a homeless man? …the hearing publicly exposed a deep divide between the men and women of the Evansville Police Department and their Administration?IS IT TRUE prior to the Police Merit Commission rejecting Evansville Police Chief Billy Bolin’s recommendation to terminate two officers and demote a third? ..serious questions were raised by the EPD rank and file officers as to transparency and impartiality of the Administration’s investigation into the incident? …its been alleged that evidence was presented that not only were the recommendations made before the investigation was complete, but the Administration deviated from the long established chain of command?IS IT TRUE we are told that many in the public are concerned about the divide between the officers protecting our streets and their Administration? …while this was a continual theme throughout the Police Merit Commission hearing, it was most evident in the public comments portion of the hearing when an EPD sergeant expressed that officers feel there was a “lack of leadership” within the department? …now that the hearing is over and the 2019 mayoral race is beginning to take shape, all eyes are on Mayor Winnecke to see if this alleged “lack of leadership” statement applies only to the Evansville Police Department or if it extends all the way to the Mayor’s Office?IS IT TRUE the former CCO contributing author Joe Wallace and his wife Karen will be joined for dinner tonight by former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice?…Wallace and Rice first met at Stanford University back in the 80s when they were both young energetic whippersnappers and should have much to talk about that they were both up to their eyeballs in?…perhaps the most activist thing that happened on campus back then was the establishment of a ragtag group called Mandella Free University that was demanding that Stanford divest it’s holding of all things tied to South Africa until Nelson Mandella was set free from the Robbin Island prison?…that worked like a charm as divestment drove justice without firing a shot, setting a fire, or breaking any windows?…Mandella went on to become president of South Africa and lead his country elegantly through troubled times of change?IS IT TRUE that the United Neighborhood Association is being downsized to one liaison employee and assigned to DMD? …it’s well known that the United Neighborhood Association has long been used to generate the “get out the vote” effort for the Winnecke political machine?IS IT TRUE that two Evansville City officials will present their views on what Evansville is doing to provide affordable housing for the City’s less fortunate at the next Southern Indiana Democracy for America Town Hall. Lots of “substandard” homes are being demolished under new programs like the Land Bank.

SOINDFA conducts monthly Town Halls on issues of importance to the Tri-State the first Wednesday of each month to provide a forum for citizens to express their views in a civil, moderated discussion.

Kazmir described the sensation as feeling “like there’s a restriction there” on his left side, starting in his hip.“Having to manipulate my body just to get through an outing is definitely getting old,” Kazmir said. “I’ve come back from worse. I’m staying positive. I know what it takes for me to pitch to my full potential and I’m going to stay positive and keep moving forward.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Earlier in camp, Kazmir said he felt healthy again after an off-season of acupuncture treatments, deep-tissue massage sessions and an overhauled workout routine. But he has struggled to find his mechanics, working overtime with pitching coach Rick Honeycutt and guest instructors Orel Hershiser and Eric Gagne at various times.“There’s so many exercises we’re trying to do to activate muscles and keep everything loosened up,” Kazmir said. “It’s getting better. But it’s definitely a head scratcher when you throw a 30-pitch bullpen or you warm up and everything starts locking up on you.”Kazmir said he felt the tightness developing during his pre-game routine Monday. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said he was unaware of the issue until after Kazmir’s first inning. The left-hander was hopeful that he could work through the tightness but Roberts pulled the plug on his outing one pitch into the second inning and said he could see Kazmir’s loss of velocity (something that was also an issue at times last season).“I couldn’t fire my back side, I couldn’t fire my back hip, couldn’t fire my back leg so there was no power, no direction,” Kazmir said. “That’s a tough way to pitch.“It’s just something that we’ve tried to stay on top of but it really tightened up on me today.” SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. >> The physical problems that marred Scott Kazmir’s 2016 season might not be all behind him after all.The veteran left-hander left his second outing of the spring after throwing only one pitch in the second inning, complaining of the same tightness and lack of flexibility on his left side that he dealt with all of last season. Kazmir couldn’t get through two innings in his first Cactus League last week either. Kazmir was unable to maintain his delivery in that game, a problem he blamed on an overaggressive pre-game bullpen.After Monday’s aborted outing, the Dodgers planned to send Kazmir for a precautionary MRI – something that became a frequent pastime for Kazmir last year as he dealt with issues in his hip, back and neck eventually diagnosed as thoracic spine inflammation. That sent him to the DL in August, ending his first season with the Dodgers after signing a three-year, $48 million contract as a free agent.“The frustration’s through the roof right now,” Kazmir said after coming out of Monday’s game against the Colorado Rockies. “It’s something I’ve been dealing with for awhile. The treatment I’m getting, the exercises I do, everything I do and to be in that spot is definitely a head scratcher.”
Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said Friday the team’s “engagement” with Kyrie Irving is still on.To carry the marriage analogy a step further, Ainge even picked out a wedding date, so to speak: July 1, the first day of free agency. NBA trade rumors: Pelicans, Celtics ‘discussed extensively’ Jayson Tatum-for-Anthony Davis deal “The way I viewed the situation is that I think a lot of people, because of Kyrie’s announcement at the beginning of the year, thought that it was a marriage,” Ainge said (via ESPN). “And I think that it’s more like an engagement. And we’re going to get married on July 1. I think that engagement is still on, as far as I know.”Irving can become a free agent if he opts out of his contract. Irving told Celtics executives and fans last fall he wanted a long-term deal and verbally commited to being part of the Celtics’ future.But recent rumors have tied Irving to several potential “super-team” pairings elsewhere, including a possible reunion with LeBron James on the Lakers. One report last week cited an unidentified source saying Irving would be “genuinely interested” in playing again with James.Irving further pushed the “breakup” narrative when he said last week he’d do what’s best for his career, telling reporters “I don’t owe anybody s—.”When asked if he’d changed his mind about the Celtics, Irving said, “Ask me July 1.” NBA All-Star Game 2019: Kyrie Irving excited by LeBron James’ picks Perhaps it’s no coincidence Ainge also prominently mentioned that date.”In my individual conversations with Kyrie, we’re still engaged, but we really can’t make those vows, sign that contract until July 1.”Only time will tell if Irving remains as committed to the Celtics as they apparently are to him. Irving created a stir last week when he downplayed his long-term commitment to the Celtics, saying “I don’t owe anybody s—.”But Ainge told Boston’s 98.5 The Sports Hub he still believes the Celtics and Irving are on their way to the altar.

The Lakers’ own veterans – who are on one-year deals – largely faded in response, with Rajon Rondo going 1 for 11 from the field (three points) and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope going 2 for 9 (seven points). The team’s most recent hot hand, JaVale McGee, started a rugged 1 for 7 from the field before closing hot and finishing with 16 points and 13 rebounds in mostly garbage minutes.Related Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed Visiting the city where he played three years of college ball at the University of Utah, Kyle Kuzma had a splashier return (although slightly less crowd fanfare) than another college darling who came back this week, Jimmer Fredette. After a 12-point first quarter, however, the Lakers’ best available scorer slowed as he faced the full focus of the Jazz defense.The Jazz victory also kept alive another strange statistic: A LeBron James-led team has not won in Salt Lake City since 2011. Of course, this came with the asterisk that James never set foot within the state for either of the Lakers’ games this year.The Lakers have seven more games, and for most of them, the available roster will be like this: Various players resting, or sitting out with injuries ranging from serious to sketchy. There will be more opportunities for players such as Wagner, who had 13 points in his 20 minutes against Utah.

The loss also guaranteed that the team will finish under .500 for the sixth consecutive season – an uncomfortable statistic leading into what should be another summer of roster upheaval.Their biggest issue was dealing with Utah’s formidable frontcourt: Gobert and Derrick Favors combined for 42 points and four blocked shots. While the Jazz shot just 31 percent from long range, they rang up 58 points in the paint against the much smaller Lakers bigs, including Johnathan Williams and Moe Wagner. Joe Ingles nearly had a triple-double (11 points, 14 assists, nine rebounds) for the Jazz.For most of the second half until the fourth quarter, the Lakers were shooting worse on 2-pointers than 3-pointers. They finished just 38 percent from the field, most critically being outscored 27-18 in the third quarter.Luke Walton, who started his 24th different lineup this season, seemed envious of the Jazz’s stability.“When you have your team, the first year you can kind of put things in and then you start building layer on layer on layer, so you get a team like this,” he said. “The same with Denver now, or how Golden State was earlier where it just continued to get deeper into those levels.

(AP Photo/Rick Bowmer)ExpandSALT LAKE CITY — Looking at the bench across the court, the Lakers saw a playoff-bound team that was well-oiled and well-defined. The Jazz have won 45 games this year, and have started their ideal lineup 53 times – a lineup that helped guide them to the second round of the postseason last spring.Looking at themselves was a completely different exercise.In their latest loss, a sleepy 115-100 game that droned on late Wednesday night at Vivint Smart Home Arena, the strongest dichotomy between the Jazz (45-30) and the Lakers (33-42) was continuity. After returning almost all of their cast from last season, the Jazz are positioned to succeed again in April, while the Lakers are merely playing out the string of their season with half of their roster – and the notable absence of LeBron James.“They’re a great team, a team that’s played together for a long time,” said Kyle Kuzma, who scored a team-high 21 points for the mostly shut-down Lakers offense. “Those guys know how to play together.” Utah’s offense featured an abundance of movement and screens, while the Lakers spread the floor and often stuck with isolation plays. The result was 33 assists for the Jazz, a 58-38 advantage in points in the paint and a 16-2 advantage in fast-break points.The most chemistry the Lakers showed at any point came from their end-of-the-bench players, who have spent most of their minutes in the G League this season. An Alex Caruso alley-oop from 10-day contract player Scott Machado was a highlight in a mostly forgettable evening.

By Jay Cook |Rising sea levels through the next century may have Two River area residents concerned, but now they can have a role in mitigating any future damages.Stemming from a late February workshop in Red Bank, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) launched an interactive web mapping tool last week for homeowners, business owners, and officials alike to identify areas of interest in 15 Two River area towns so education and flood prevention tactics can soon follow.The web project comes from the NJ Fostering Regional Adaption through Municipal Economic Scenarios (FRAMES) initiative, funded by a nearly $900,000 grant from the federal National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).Towns included in the NJ FRAMES program are Eatontown, Fair Haven, Highlands, Little Silver, Long Branch, Middletown, Monmouth Beach, Oceanport, Ocean Township, Red Bank, Rumson, Sea Bright, Shrewsbury, Tinton Falls and West Long Branch.Residents living in those towns now have the ability to sign onto the associated website, www.TwoRiversOneFuture.nj.gov, and explore an interactive map with predetermined areas of interest – police stations, fire stations, municipal buildings, to name a few.They can also drop pins on other places with local significance, like a popular business, a little league baseball field, or a beloved outdoor concert venue along the water.“While we have collected plenty of great data on at-risk areas in these communities, this effort will help ensure we are focusing our efforts on the right places, and those that matter most to residents,” said Ginger Kopkash, DEP’s assistant commissioner for land use, in a news release.She said DEP could implement different flood mitigation methods along the Atlantic Ocean coast, as well as the Navesink and Shrewsbury rivers. Those methods could be “green infrastructure, living shorelines and hardening of critical infrastructure that would better protect these places and their surrounding neighborhoods,” Kopash said.Working with residents has been the crux of this campaign, something that NJ FRAMES management said they set out to do from the start.“I think the important thing about getting the public involved is that they were the ones affected by the storm, and have had varying success in recovery from it as well, up and down the shore,” said Liz Semple, DEP manager of the coastal and land use planning office, at the Feb. 23 open house at the Two River Theater.The interactive map also overlays varying degrees of anticipated rising tide growth by the year 2100. According to an NJ FRAMES report in June, the likely range for sea level rise is 1.7 feet to 3.1 feet, with low emissions. With high emissions, that range expands to 2.4 feet to 4.5 feet.Using the interactive tool provided by NJ FRAMES, a 3-foot sea level rise would provide for significant changes to the Two River area.Most of the downtown business district in Highlands would be under water, spanning from Gravelly Point Road to Veterans Memorial Park.Numerous waterfront residences in Rumson, Monmouth Beach, Oceanport, and Little Silver, along the shores of the Shrewsbury River, could all be subject to flooding.Shrewsbury River marinas, restaurants, and homes along Ocean Avenue in Sea Bright could also possibly be affected by rising water levels.NJ FRAMES’ team will be meeting with residents and businesses over the next week to gather additional input for the project: Thursdays by the Sea, Long Branch, Aug. 10; Sounds at Sunset, Fair Haven, Aug. 11; Red Bank Community Block Party, Aug. 12; West End Farmer’s Market, Long Branch, Aug. 17; and Coffee Hour at Booskerdoo Coffee & Baking Co., Monmouth Beach, Aug. 18.This article was first published in the August 10-17, 2017 print edition of The Two River Times.
No team in the Murdoch Division wants to face high-flying Beaver Valley in the first round of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League playoffs — especially a Nelson Leafs franchise which has been sent to the golf course by the Nitehawks the past four seasons.The Leafs and the Grand Forks Border Bruins kept their respective hopes alive of not finishing in the dreaded Murdoch Division fourth place by skating to a 5-5-overtime tie Sunday afternoon at the NDCC Arena.
