LeBron James won’t play much in preseason, Lakers coach Frank Vogel says

first_img“We saw a mismatch in LeBron and Anthony’s team really sort of had their way with the other teams,” Vogel said. “We had three teams out there, and those guys really performed at a high level on both ends of the floor.”The Lakers play in their first preseason game next weekend against the Warriors at their new arena in San Francisco, then the team will travel to China to face the Nets in two exhibition games.”I feel like we’re ready to play right now,” Vogel said. “We put a lot of stuff in, both offensively with our full offense and the variety of things you can do out of it, as well as a lot of our defensive coverages. We’ve had a really productive first couple of days, and I’m not worried about us not being ready to play games against Golden State or in China.” “We want to be intelligent,” Vogel said on playing James during the team’s six-game exhibition. “We want to get him enough reps to get him familiar with his teammates and get everybody on the same page, some cohesiveness. But certainly going to be intelligent and not overdo it in the preseason.”Intensity. Enthusiasm. Energy.Another good day of practice in the books. #LakeShow pic.twitter.com/CBmTtTSn2X— Los Angeles Lakers (@Lakers) September 30, 2019James, 34, is entering his 17th season in the league, is in his second season with the Lakers and is starting his first year under Vogel, who was hired by Los Angeles after Luke Walton was fired last season. Related News Clippers’ Paul George targets November return after offseason shoulder surgeries It also will mark Anthony Davis’ first year with James and the Lakers after he was traded to Los Angeles in a blockbuster deal in the offseason.Vogel explained he wants James and Davis to get used to playing with each other while minimizing any wear and tear before the regular season starts. He also said he is figuring out the lineup since the Lakers added Dwight Howard, Avery Bradley and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope in the offseason. Don’t expect to see LeBron James on the court much as the NBA preseason starts up.Lakers coach Frank Vogel said while James will play a little bit, the team would rather conserve him for the regular season.

(Updated) Sunday blog: Talking election, Manti Te’o, downtown development…

first_img4. True loveHere is the official Cueball definition of love. If you have a significant other who is spoon feeding you and cleaning up your messes because you’re old as hell and don’t know any better, then you have found your true love in life. Commentary by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Five Cueball thoughts, plus one,  for Jan. 20, 2013… 1. Election filing ends TuesdayI have no interest in giving lectures. I couldn’t care less if you vote, run for office, eat your vegetables, donate your time to community service or attend high school sporting events. You are an American and you are entitled to your life.So I’m going to make this a “suggestion.” Run for office.If you don’t like where you live and think things aren’t what they should be, do something about it. Run for office. Make a difference in the world.The filing deadline is this Tuesday at noon. If you are running for school board, file at the Sumner County Clerk’s office at the courthouse. If you are running for city council, file at the city clerk’s office of your jurisdiction.Remember, you can’t file tomorrow. The offices are closed for Martin Luther’s King Day. A list of filings can be found here.2. Signage….This came through the comments section for a Sunday Blog I wrote concerning the closing of “The Rock” restaurant a couple weeks ago. Since the story is older, not many people will see this comment, so I’m going to republish it here because it is so good…By Marsha EscandonMy husband and I were very sorry to see The Rock close, but to be honest, we were not surprised. The reason is exactly what Cue stated and that is advertising. We too kept waiting for signs to go up and none appeared. We moved to Wellington a little over 2 years ago and love it. However, one thing that has been troublesome for us has been the almost complete lack of signage. Businesses lack signs. Parks lack signs. Apartment complexes, churches, trailer parks, schools, etc. frequently have either no signs or inadequate ones. Living here has been a voyage of discovery. There is a feeling that “well, everyone knows where it is.” Well, everyone doesn’t. We encourage the City of Wellington and business owners alike to address this issue.3. Manti Te’o controversy….This week’s “media have-a-cow controversy,” concerns Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o, who plays a mean game of football but obviously has trouble with women – especially the imaginary kind. I particularly like this controversy because it includes two subjects I know a lot about: journalism and being unlucky in love in my youth.I fluctuate between those who think Te’o is a complete liar and those who think he got duped.My first inclination was he was duped. Why? Because when it comes to “love,” especially to testosterone young men there are no depths to stupidity.Love is cool. And if you aren’t getting love or finding love, then there is always a love story you can tell your friends.And with this Internet thing, it gives love a whole new dimension.Had there been Internet when I was 21, I could see myself getting caught up in a long-distance relationship. I could also see myself getting duped. And I could see myself trying to cover it all up like Te’o obviously did.But here is where I differ from Mr. Te’o. I was a dork! He’s an All-America linebacker. He could have had his pick of any cheerleader on Notre Dame’s campus!And that is why I think Mr. Te’o may either be a huge con artist, a complete moron, or a psychopath. And if I was an NFL owner, he would be one player I would steer away from. 6. Shout out of the weekThis week’s shout out of the week goes to the South Haven girls, who won the SCBL tournament as a fifth seed, over Argonia.Although Sumner Newscow loves Argonia and what Dixie Brewster has achieved there, we tip our hat this week to first-year head coach Eric Adams, who has made a nice transition from Wellington eighth grade basketball coach to high school Cardinal coach. The Cardinals broke a five-year Red Raider tournament championship streak. I have a feeling Argonia-South Haven is going to become quite a rivalry. 5. An idea to revive downtown.My family took a trip to Mexico this Christmas and we discovered a promotional tool that just might work for Wellington retailers.When we were walking the tour strips, Mexican retailers would greet us at the door with an interesting proposal. If we came into their store, they would give us free tequila shots.So how about it downtown owners? I can run a great ad blog for you. “Come down to Barbara Jons or the Gold Corner or Federal Tire or wherever and we’ll do tequila shots. Our treat!”Just thinking outside the box here.last_img read more

The Nazis closed down Jewish-owned businesses and began to round up the Jews for relocation to concentration camps for the Final Solution. Danish freedom fighters of all ages risked everything in daring, hurried rescue attempts of entire Jewish population.In the Number the Stars production, a young Annamarie and Kirsti Johansen flee from soldiers, interrogation, force dogs, personal danger, and loss of loved ones and their own fears as they try to help their friend Ellen Rosen escape across the ocean to Sweden and safety.In the “Terezin Promise” the play deals with the Terezin concentration camp and the Nazis who are in retreat, desperate to destroy evidence of their crime. While some prisoners escape hidden in the confusion of the retreat, Raja Englanderova remains to keep a promise she made to their teacher, Irena: she will not leave without the drawings and poems of the Terezin children. She convinces her friends and Hauns, the leader of the boys’ group, that they must find the buried bundles and hidden suitcase before the Nazis destroy the camp and them with it.“I went to the Holocaust Museum and saw some of the artwork and poetry from these children in the concentration camp,” said director Dorathea Kelly, drama director, debate and forensic coach. “It is exciting that the Wellington kids are bringing this adaption to the stage. They are loving the challenge of bringing a play that has a lot of depth.”The cast list for the Number the Stars are:Ellen – Cassidy Harringer.Kierstie – Allyssa Jackson.The Giraffe – Adam Hradil.Mrs. Johansen – Mehan McCarty.Mrs. Rosen – Courtney Luna.Papa Johansen – Julian Cornejo.Peter – Nate Ybarra.Soldier – J.J.

The Blood moon over Wellington…

first_imgMiss those, and you’ll have to wait until 2032–33. In a total lunar eclipse, the moon gets a red sheen as it passes behind the Earth into its umbra (shadow).“Since Earth’s umbral shadow is darker in the center than at the edge, the moon’s appearance will likely change dramatically with time as the total phase progresses,” NASA said in a statement. The blood moon starts to change from its silver color as it slides into the Earth’s shadow, NASA said.Sumner County residents saw the “blood moon” begin at 2:07 a.m., with the best part of the show — the total eclipse portion — lasting through 3:24 a.m. ET.There were a lot of people in eastern United States who were at the mercy of the cloud cover, which hid the show from half of the country. But not here in Wellington, where the sky was absolutely perfoect.People in the Americas will watch the entire spectacle while observers in the western Pacific will catch the second half of the event, NASA said. Europe and Africa won’t see much — the moon will be setting in most of those continents during the eclipse.Unlike solar eclipses, lunar eclipses are safe to view with the naked eye. No special filters are required to safeguard your eyes.Follow us on Twitter. By Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Those Sumner County residents who were wanted to brave the 32 degree night at 2 a.m. this morning were treated to a spectacular show – this one free of charge.In the south sky, there was a total lunar eclipse and the moon turned into a coppery red ball. The skies were perfect for such viewing in Sumner County this morning. The first faint traces of the Earth’s shadow began to fall across the moon’s surface at 1:20 a.m. The total eclipse — when the entire moon was bathed in Earth’s shadow started at 2:07 a.m. and lasted until 3:25 a.m.Ed Krupp, director of the Griffith Observatory told CNN that this is one of four lunar eclipses this year. North Americas will see a blood moon a total of four times Tuesday and October 8 this year, and April 4 and September 28 next year.“The fact that there are four lunar successions coming this year and next … is unusual,” Krupp said. “But it’s not the kind of thing astronomers get worked up about . It doesn’t really mean anything. It’s a chance arrangement of gravity and the motions of objects in the solar system, primarily the Earth and moon.”If you miss it Tuesday, there will be more opportunities.It’s the first in a series of four consecutive total lunar eclipses known as the tetrad. The phenomenon will repeat itself three more times in six-month intervals ending in September 2015.center_img Close Forgot password? Please put in your email: Send me my password!

Who plays on ‘Thursday Night Football’ tonight? Time, TV channel, schedule for Week 14

first_imgMORE: Watch Cowboys vs. Bears live with fuboTV (7-day free trial)Thursday night’s game will have a relatively significant impact on the NFL playoff picture. While a loss to the Cowboys technically would not eliminate the Bears, it would all but end their chances of earning a wild-card spot in the NFC. Either the 49ers or the Seahawks, both 10-2 heading into Week 14, will take one wild-card spot. Unless the 8-4 Vikings free-fall over the next few weeks, they likely will earn the second.The Cowboys, of course, amazingly still lead the NFC East and are slotted in the No. 4 seed for the playoffs. They need to beat the Bears in Week 14, though, in order to maintain their one-game edge over the Eagles, who host the hapless Giants on Monday night.Below is all the info you need to watch “Thursday Night Football” this week, including the TV channel and kickoff time for Cowboys vs. Bears.Who plays on Thursday Night Football tonight?Dallas Cowboys at Chicago BearsKickoff time: 8:20 p.m. ETIn both our picks against the spread and our straight-up NFL predictions for Week 14, Sporting News is projecting a Cowboys win over the Bears on Thursday night. Below are the explanations.Pick against the spread: The Cowboys and Bears each played on Thanksgiving last week with different results, as the former was upset at home and the latter rallied to win on the road. Chicago and Dallas’ defenses aren’t as daunting as expected, so it comes down to which quarterback you can trust to make some big plays off the better success in the running game. That’s easily Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott. The desperate Cowboys will dig deep for a much-needed road win against an opponent with the same (6-6) record. Pick: Cowboys win 23-20 and cover the spread.Straight-up prediction: Most assumed this would be a matchup of Thanksgiving Day winners, but only the Bears took care of their business last week. The Cowboys’ loss to the Bills has them back down at .500 with the same 6-6 record as that of Chicago. Yet because the Bears are all but out of the NFC North race and the Cowboys amazingly still lead the NFC East, the home team has more to lose in Week 14. That will lead to an inspired effort from Matt Nagy’s bunch, but on a frigid Chicago night, Dallas will benefit from a more effective rushing attack and more efficient quarterback play. Pick: Cowboys 24, Bears 20.MORE: Full betting preview for Cowboys vs. BearsWhat channel is Thursday Night Football on?TV channel (national): NFL Network, FoxTV channel (Dallas): KDFWTV channel (Chicago): WFLDLive stream: fuboTV”Thursday Night Football” broadcast rights in 2019 are shared between Fox, NFL Network and Amazon Prime.Thursday night games on Fox this season are called by the network’s lead broadcast team of Joe Buck and Troy Aikman, sideline reporters Erin Andrews and Kristina Pink, and rules analyst Mike Pereira. In 2019, “Thursday Night Football” generally features intriguing matchups, even if the quality of play takes a dip as a result of a short week for the participating teams. That’s part of the reason the NFL can continue to get away with forcing teams to play a few days early each week. As long as fans care to scan their TV channels for “Thursday Night Football,” the league will give the people what they want.This week on “Thursday Night Football,” the Bears will host the Cowboys in a game scheduled to kick off at 8:20 p.m. ET on Fox and NFL Network. Based on the relatively small point spread attached to this game, Chicago vs. Dallas is expected to be tight. The 6-6 Cowboys are 2 1/2-point road favorites over the 6-6 Bears. Andrea Kramer and Hannah Storm are the voices for Amazon Prime’s broadcasts.WEEK 14 NFL PICKS: Straight up | Against the spreadThursday Night Football TV schedule for 2019All “Thursday Night Football” games start at 8:20 p.m. ET.WeekDateMatchupTV channels4Sept. 26Eagles at PackersFox, NFLN, Prime5Oct. 3Rams at SeahawksFox, NFLN, Prime6Oct. 10Giants at PatriotsFox, NFLN, Prime7Oct. 17Chiefs at BroncosFox, NFLN, Prime8Oct. 24Redskins at VikingsFox, NFLN, Prime9Oct. 3149ers at CardinalsFox, NFLN, Prime10Nov. 7Chargers at RaidersFox, NFLN, Prime11Nov. 14Steelers at BrownsFox, NFLN, Prime12Nov. 21Colts at TexansFox, NFLN, Prime14Dec. 5Cowboys at BearsFox, NFLN, Prime15Dec. 12Jets at RavensFox, NFLN, Primelast_img read more
