Enda Stevens scores for Sheffield United as they defeat Norwich City 2-1

first_imgENDA STEVENS continued both his and Sheffield United’s excellent season as he nodded in a header to help them on their way to 2-1 win against Norwich City at Carrow Road.It was the 29-year-old’s first goal of the season as he levelled proceedings after Alexander Tettey had given The Canaries a first-half lead.The Republic of Ireland wing-back made a purposeful dart into the box to meet a cross from George Baldock with a powerful header.Baldock then got his name on the score-sheet just minutes later as some tricky footwork got him a bit of space just inside the box before he slotted it home.Stevens’ club and international teammate David McGoldrick had a fine too late on but blazed over as his frustrating time in front of goal continues as he still has not scored in the league this season.In spite of that miss, McGoldrick and Stevens have been two of the stand-out performers for both club and country this season whether it be for the high-flying Blades or Mick McCarthy’s less inspired outfit.IRELAND ANGLEJohn Egan also lined out in his usual centre-back spot.If Ireland are to qualify for Euro 2020 in March via the playoff route, all three men will likely have to continue their fine form.MOST READ IN SPORTTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battle’I ACCEPT’McGregor accepts Silva fight at UFC catchweight of 176lbs in huge super-fightTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramPicturedA CUT ABOVEMike Tyson shows two-inch cut ‘picked up in training’ ahead of boxing returnExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubToday was a return to winning ways for Chris Wilder’s team as last week their six game unbeaten run came to an end against Newcastle United.They now sit in 8th position just a point behind Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham and seven off fourth-placed Chelsea.With fixtures against Liverpool and Man City to come this month, wins like today’s could be crucial in keeping them in the top half of the table for the foreseeable future.last_img read more

2 taxi drivers carjacked

first_img…1 vehicle recovered during Police chaseCarjackers went on a spree Monday evening attacking two private-hire operators in separate incidents on the West Coast of Demerara (WCD) and East Bank of Essequibo (EBE). The modus operandi by the perpetrators has caused investigators to believe that they were either part of the same network or that the attackers were the same in both cases.The car which was stolen from taxi operator Harry NarineThe car retrieved by Police after hijackers abandoned itIn the first instance, two young males exit a minibus about 21:20h on Monday and hired taxi driver Harry Narine, 28, called “Danny” from the base on the Zeelugt Public Road to transport them into the New Scheme.Guyana Times was told by a relative of the victim that the men directed him to the back of the Zeelugt New Housing Scheme, which was reportedly dark. As he was driving in, Narine observed two men standing by a koker, but continued driving further into the scheme. However, after reaching some distance, the two passengers informed him that they had given him the wrong directions and asked that they turn around.The taxi operator quickly complied and as they were heading back out of the scheme, they again passed the two men at the koker and his passengers ordered him to stop. Immediately after, the two lurking men, one of whom was armed with a handgun, reportedly pounced on Narine and began hitting him about his head and body. The two passengers subsequently joined in beating the driver.The four men then dragged Narine out of the car and threw him into a nearby trench before escaping in the man’s silver-grey Toyota Premio car, bearing registration number PSS 9929.About an hour later, a similar incident occurred on the West Coast of Demerara; however, Police ranks managed to retrieve the stolen motor car after the hijackers abandoned the vehicle during a chase.According to reports, taxi driver Jailall Mohadeo, 30, of Cornelia Ida, was at his service base located at De Willem Public Road when two males hired him about 22:30h to transport them into CI New Housing Scheme.On arrival at their destination, the two passengers, along with two other armed men, attacked the driver and escaped with the man’s Toyota Premio car, bearing registration number PNN 1952.However, the suspects subsequently encountered a Police road block in front of the Den Amstel Police Station and immediately changed direction. This caught the attention of the ranks, who in turn pursued the vehicle.Shortly after, the suspects abandoned the vehicle and escaped into some nearby bushes. The lawmen have since taken possession of the vehicle, which is currently at the Leonora Police Station.Detectives are working diligently to apprehend the carjackers, whose actions appeared to have been well-coordinated.Last year, there was a spike in vehicular hijacking cases. The Guyana Police Force (GPF) had issued several notices previously, warning taxi operators of carjackers who have amped up attacks on drivers of Toyota Allion and Toyota Premio motor cars under the pretext of wanting taxis.last_img read more

During one robbery, she stole a washing machine, tumble drier, TVs, hair straighteners and even the linen off the beds, Letterkenny District Court heard.Inspector Michael Harrison detailed the incidents in front of Judge Paul Kelly.A charge of carrying out an arson attack on her father’s home at Rosskirk – to defraud insurance companies – was withdrawn after the court heard her father had since died.Inspector Harrison said Campbell, who is 42, stole a range of items from two holiday homes on the Lough Salt Road, Carrigart in September 2010.The homes belonged to a woman from the North and Campbell helped herself to €1,700 worth of goods including the washing machine, a laundry basket and a kettle.She also caused €300 damage to the property and emptied the oil tank.She struck again at Eelburn Caravan Park the following month, carrying out burglaries at two caravans owned by a man from Co Down.A TV, aerial, DVD player were among €560 worth of good stolen and €200 worth of damage was done to the properties.In another raid the following month at Croaghross – in November 2010 – she stole tools to the value of  €1,300.Campbell also admitted driving while disqualified and the theft of oil when she was stopped in Kilmacrennan in October 2010.Inspector Harrison said she had stolen goods worth €3,760 and caused damage to properties worth €900.Solicitor Frank Dorrian said his client had a “simplistic” approach to life and described the case as “sad.”He said Campbell hoped to pay back some of the money by letting land next month for which she would be paid €1,200.Judge Kelly gave Campbell as six month suspended jail sentence for the driving offences June 2011, suspended sentence for previous pointing out: “She was given a 20-year driving ban in July 2008.”The judge warned: “She is not to drive again.”He adjourned the sentence on the burglaries until December 9.REVEALED: WOMAN WAS BEHIND SPATE OF HOLIDAY HOME BURGLARIES was last modified: September 10th, 2013 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:burglarLetterkenny CourtPortsalonTheresa Campbelllast_img read more

There’s nothing wrong

first_imgI love the Orange Line. I grew up in England and all I knew until I came to the U.S. 40 years ago was buses, trains, my bicycle and walking. I rode the bus on its opening weekend. Most people out here don’t understand how to use the bus. Pay attention: A red light always means stop. Read the signs: No right turn means exactly that. There’s nothing wrong with the Orange Line. The problem is the people who use it. Young people, give up your seat to the elderly or handicapped. Parents, let your young child sit onyour lap if there are no more seats and an adult gets on, male or female. At least offer your seat to them. Listen when the driver makes an announcement. Pay attention, people. It’s a new day. We have more much-needed public transportation. Let’s make it work for everyone. Judith A. Serafin Valley Village Pre-election preaching Re “Church under fire from IRS for pre-election preaching” (Nov. 8): IRS agents better roll up their sleeves and pretend they’re working now that they’ve threatening to repeal the tax-exempt status from All Saints Episcopal Church in Pasadena because of two anti-war sermons before the 2004 presidential election. Let’s try to be fair here. If they can go after this church, next on their list must be Jerry Falwell, James Dobson and the Catholic Church of every archbishop who declared John Kerry persona non grata for his pro-choice stand on abortion, and every church, synagogue, temple and mosque in this country. Those sleeves will have to be rolled up mighty high because there are so many houses of worship to go after. Sandy Sand West Hills And the winner is … Re “President takes a jab at Chavez” (Nov. 7): On Nov 6, Bush spoke in Brazil about the choices Latin Americans must make regarding their future. On one hand, they could choose “representative government, integration into the world community and a faith in the transformative power of freedom in individual lives.” Alternatively, they could choose “to roll back the democratic process of the past two decades by playing to fear, pitting neighbor against neighbor and blaming others for their own failures to provide for the people.” Too bad that Bush chose the latter for this country. David Holland Northridge There he goes again Re “President takes a jab at Chavez” (Nov. 7): Why does George W. Bush have to go around the world stirring up trouble and inciting new hatred for the U.S.? Can’t we just get along? Alda Pearson Valencia Oil profits Re “No mystery to rising oil profits” (Their Opinions, Nov. 7): While supply and demand are not without some merit, it seems to me that if this were indeed the case, the oil company’s profits would be proportionate to the increase in the price per barrel of crude. Instead, these companies have raked in record profits. There is definitely something wrong here even taking into consideration the increase in demand due to refinery shutdowns, Hurricane Katrina, and the added markets from India and China. Yes, the government is also profiting to the tune of $1.34 trillion in revenues, according to Lowry, but what would you expect when the government is run by oilmen? Laurent Jean Burbank Silencing opposition Re “Judge Alito no crazed ideologue” (Viewpoint, Nov. 6): Bill O’Reilly blames the acrimony in this country on the “liberal press.” If the press is so one-sided, why do they allow Bill to broadcast on TV and write newspaper columns? And why are the talk shows on radio so slanted toward the “conservative” view? The conservatives are the ones responsible for most of the acrimony. A prime example of attempts to silence disagreements with the “conservative” point of view is the name-calling they resort to. A big part of the problem in today’s society is the conservatives not wanting to hear or read, or have their children hear or read anyone who disagrees with them. Irving Leemon Northridge Rioting in France Re “Chirac vows to restore order” (Nov. 7): France is reaping what it has sown. For years France has been criticizing Israel for its treatment of the Arab intifada. They have even gone as far as to call suicide bombers “freedom fighters.” Well, now they have their own intifada and they are calling for zero tolerance. I guess it is a lot easier to tell others to turn the other cheek than to do it yourself. When will the countries of the world realize that Israel is the beginning, the training ground, for what will eventually spread to every other country in the world? What will it take for the world to wake up? Tobi Ruth Love Thousand Oaks President with guts Re “Chirac vows to restore order” (Nov. 7): It’s a shame that so many Americans can’t see beyond the ends of their noses, as proved in the opinions columns. We are deeply embroiled in a global war with Muslims, but such people can’t see over Iraq, which is just one battle. Look at France to see what war with Muslims looks like. It’s a shame the French leaders don’t have the guts to stop it. We Americans are so lucky to have a president who sees the whole picture and does have the guts to protect us. Ralph Smathers Newhall Complacency Re “Chirac vows to restore order” (Nov. 7): While the situation in France is both distressing and worrisome, and could easily spread to other European countries, do we in the USA understand that we, too, have an immigration problem in this country that needs to be addressed before it gets completely out of hand? Complacency seems to be the order of the day here in America and an attitude that matches “this rioting couldn’t happen here.” Wake up; it’s just around the corner. Pamela Franklin Granada Hills Head Start Re “Atrocious program” (Your Opinions, Nov. 7): I’d like to answer Richard Detana’s question about “Why is free preschool for low-income families necessary?” Although you characterize Valley Head Start program an atrocity and nonsense, parents struggling to earn a living often must both work to pay the bills. It is incredibly offensive that you assume these people don’t want to raise their own children. Preschool is a fantastic benefit for the parents in terms of socializing and preparing these kids for their future education and place in society. It affords these folks the ability to earn the money it takes to raise a family. Robert Stachowiak Reseda Money well spent Re “Atrocious program” (Your Opinions, Nov. 7): I would like to take a minute to cheer up the reader who complained about the money spent on Head Start. We only spend a fraction of the money spent in a week in Iraq to send thousands of our poor kids to preschool. Also, a child who attends preschool is much more likely to do well in school later on in life. So think of the Head Start program as an investment and cheer up.
