I can go on,” Joerger joked.With Philadelphia clinging to a four-point lead with 3 minutes remaining, Embiid blocked Willie Cauley-Stein’s layup attempt. Two possessions later, Embiid rejected Barnes’ close-range try before hitting a short jumper of his own to make it 121-114 with 1:45 remaining.“At the end of the day, I think Joel Embiid made two defensive plays that were terrific,” Joerger said.The Kings were playing one night after a 126-120 loss at Boston, a game in which they had a 17-point first-half lead.Against Philadelphia, Sacramento played from behind from the outset.

A tribute for the late Dr Cheddi Jagan

first_imgBy Rev Gideon CecilA great soul was born on Guyana’s soil,From parents who lived in poverty tears and toil.His path was rough from his birth to his death,Where he lived and died for his nation in no regret. He struggled for all Guyanese to be free,In sweat and tears he fought for our liberty.For us to always remember the Father of our Nation,He fought for one and all without discrimination.  If we will understand our hero Cheddi Jagan,And give each other love and a helping hand.We will live as one people and one nation,With the same destiny for our souls to be free.Let’s remember our liberator and mourn together this day, And join our hearts together to sing and pray.For us to remember he was a man of patience,He ruled our nation with a clear conscience.If we will comprehend this great son of our soil,And emulate his vision to walk an extra mile.We will build a bridge over hate, greed, and war,And live in love to reach heaven’s twinkle stars. O great soul of my country; you came and went away!For this nation to think of your great name and pray.In the ages to come your words shall be our song,For us to remember you for our souls to be strong.You left this nation to mourn and weep for you,And my soul to think of you in everything I do.O what manner of faith you possessed for 28 years!When you struggled for my nation in blood and tears.Your name will be a light in every Guyanese heart,And your words of wisdom shall never depart.Your face we will remember as a smiling rose, And your immortal words even though your eyesare closed.May you be like a Lincoln, Gandhi, and Nehru?As a true statesman in everything you do.So long as history lives, your name will live,As the Father of my blessed country Guyana.You liberated a nation for a new nation to be born,For us to remember Cheddi Jagan as a noble soul reborn.last_img read more

Turf’s taking over

first_imgLA VERNE – Bonita High School’s football stadium will be given a $1 million makeover later this year. By a 4-1 vote, with Councilman Steven Johnson dissenting, the City Council on Monday gave the green light for synthetic turf to be installed at the school’s Glenn Davis Stadium. The Bonita Unified school board is expected to approve the contract at tonight’s meeting. “It’s a win-win situation,” said Gary Rapkin, Bonita’s superintendent. “This will help the athletic teams, the P.E. classes and the community.” The six other fields, frequently used by youth and high school teams, require a rest period that allows for the grass to grow back, they added. City and district officials said that having synthetic turf will alleviate the pressure placed on the other fields. Nearly 7,000 students practice and play on the fields, which have suffered from constant use and insufficient rest time. By the end of February after the football and soccer seasons, the football stadium is “down to bare dirt in some areas,” said Robert Ketterling, Bonita High School principal. Ketterling said parents voiced concerns regarding potential injuries because of the uneven playing surface. “There are significant height differences as you move across the field,” he said. Councilman Dan Harden said improving the condition of the sports field was an issue he dealt with 14 years ago when he ran for office. “We worried about accommodating 800 kids who play soccer,” he said. “There is far more pressure on this field and we had to deal with it.” Hacienda-La Puente, Baldwin Park and Claremont are some of the schools that have installed synthetic turf on athletic fields, according to school officials. caroline.an@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2108 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The project – with a $1.01 million price tag – will be paid through state and county grants, and money from the city’s Park Development Fund, which includes fees paid by residential and commercial developers. Replacement costs will be shared by the city and school district, said Bob Russi, assistant city manager. Both sides split the $50,000 maintenance fees for all sports fields. City officials said work on the field will begin in July and is expected to finish in early September. Upgrading the field was a key finding for the revised Parks and Community Services master plan, which highlighted 17 areas of parks improvement over the next five to 10 years. With a life cycle of 10 to 12 years, the upgrade to synthetic turf will allow sports teams to practice and compete on the field nearly year-round, city officials said. last_img read more

Redondo chalk walk

first_imgBeever’s pavement portraits usually take about four days to complete, and he hates the first day – “the tedious bit,” he called it – because it requires painstaking steps to ensure the perspective is perfect on the drawing. His trippy pictures rely on an art technique called trompe l’oeil – French for “trick the eye” – that employs optical illusions to paint or draw objects that look real. Beever views his cement canvas through a camera lens perched on a tripod. He’ll add a tentative chalk stroke, check through the camera again, and then erase with a damp sponge if needed. The camera, he said, lets Beever “cheat” the tendency of the human brain and eye to simplify what it perceives, he said. The result is a well hole so realistic passers-by might walk around it to avoid falling into the earth – like a drawing he did in 1997. Or Beever’s first-ever three- dimensional chalk venture about 12 years ago: a prone woman with her leg kicked skyward, an image so perfectly scaled that a cheeky passer-by might try to get fresh with her. Beever studied fine arts at the University of Leeds, but turned to street art after graduation, he said. “I wanted to travel and find some way of collecting money,” he said. “Sidewalk art seemed to be the answer.” And for years, Beever made his living that way – drawing on public pavement and accepting donations from passers-by. “If you want to make money, you have to be good,” he said, listing a series of pictures that didn’t go over so well with his audience: the elephant man, Strasburg Cathedral, and Abraham Lincoln and George Washington in Venice, Calif. Humans most like looking at pictures of people, Beever said – hence a fetching woman in a swimming pool in Redondo Beach. “It’s a cliched view, but I accept that,” he said. “I think she’ll have to be blond.” These days, Beever works purely on commission, and now has hit the big time as a camera crew followed him around Thursday in Redondo Beach. He’s featured in a new television series called “Concrete Canvas,” set to air next month on Gallery HD, a television network dedicated to the visual arts. The series documents Beever creating chalk drawings in 10 world cities, from New York to Berlin to Mexico City. Appearing on the show has quadrupled Beever’s chalk drawing output – from a typical five pictures a year to about 20, he said. Beever will work on his pool lady picture through Saturday. He attracted a few bystanders Thursday, but he’ll probably draw the most attention today when he begins adding vibrant colors and details to the picture. The television cameras make Beever more nervous than an audience, but he said passers-by can be a tough crowd. “Sometimes, everyone will stand around and ask, `Is this all it is?”‘ he said. andrea.woodhouse@dailybreeze.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! By Andrea Woodhouse STAFF WRITER Sure, what your kids scrawl on sidewalks is cute, but what Julian Beever can do with chalk will blow your mind. The British artist – deemed the “Pavement Picasso” for his three-dimensional, anamorphic renderings cast on concrete – has set his artist’s eye on the Redondo Beach pier as his latest canvas. As fishermen cast their lines into the ocean and sea gulls flew overhead Thursday, Beever shuffled around the pier and sketched the ghostly outline of a woman floating in a swimming pool. So totally Los Angeles, he figured. “I wanted something outdoor, opulent, self-indulgent and sexy,” Beever said. “So I’m drawing a three- dimensional, heart-shaped pink swimming pool with a lady lying on a lilo, sipping a cocktail, which to me is a very Los Angeles image,” he added. last_img
