first_imgThe events date back to 11:00 hours on December 19 when the Civil Guard stopped the vehicle that Marcelo was driving at the height of PK 5,900, belonging to the municipality of Alcobendas, after they saw him commit a traffic violation. At that precise moment, the agents verified that the defendant had previously lost the validity of his driving license since the points assigned by regulation had already been withdrawn. Marcelo appeared on Thursday morning in the Alcobendas Courts and pleaded guilty to a crime against road safety, accepting a 10-month penalty with a daily fee of 350 euros, 105,000 euros in total, after the previous agreement that his lawyers closed with the Prosecutor’s Office.last_img

In his own time, Moore thrilled

first_imgOnce every week or two, Lenny Moore cuts away from his job as a juvenile services counselor to watch the Baltimore Ravens practice and chat with the players. Once in a while, one of the Ravens will surprise him. “Some of the younger guys actually knew who I was,” Moore said. “I was happily shocked. They’ve got all this stuff on TV, the playbacks and these guys identify. A couple of them have said, ‘Man, I saw you Mr. Moore, you were something. I didn’t know you could run like that.’ ” No matter where they line up, no matter how they’re given the ball, they seem to find a way to put it in the end zone – often spectacularly. That was Moore’s game, too. Angular, athletic and tall, at nearly 6-foot-2, Moore was also among the league’s fastest players, something he took pride in by taping over his high-tops so they looked like the sleeker low-cuts. Moore arrived from Penn State as a running back and averaged 7.5 yards per carry, winning rookie of the year honors. But his pass-happy coach, Weeb Ewbank, began to use him more as a receiver and – learning from Berry – Moore caught 50 passes for an 18.8 average in 1958, when Baltimore won the first of back-to-back NFL titles. In 1964, after a couple of injury-plagued seasons, Moore was returned to the backfield by coach Don Shula and scored 16 touchdowns rushing and another three receiving. He was named the Comeback Player of the Year and the Most Valuable Player in leading the Colts back to the championship game. When Moore retired after the 1967 season, only Jim Brown had scored more than his 111 career touchdowns, a total that still ranks ninth all-time. “He played on a team of stars, but he was something special,” Accorsi said of a Colts’ offense that led the league in scoring five times in 10 years and included Hall of Famers Unitas, Berry and tackle Jim Parker. “He was an electrifying player.” Moore, now 71, has relished the attention he’s received with Tomlinson’s run at his record. In a phone interview, he’s engaging, praises Tomlinson and seems eager to talk about anything – except himself. “You don’t get stuck on yourself because they forget about you quick,” Moore said. “The further back you go, the less you remember. It seems to be the whole societal norm.” So, he’ll sit in his living room today, just as he does most weekends, and watch football not much differently than others. “Wow, I’m just as excited as some of the other people at some of the things these players do,” Moore said. “I never put myself in their situation. If you asked me when I ran the ball, I never thought at all. My mind was perfectly blank. Whatever reaction I’d have, I’d have to go to the film.” Just like the rest of us. Elsewhere around the league in Week 7: When Pittsburgh plays at Cincinnati today in a game that will determine the shape of the AFC North playoff race, it will pit the quarterbacks with the top two passer ratings – the Steelers’ Ben Roethlisberger at 123.8 and the Bengals’ Carson Palmer at 113.6. They’ve combined to throw 20 touchdowns against two interceptions. Former NFL receiver Cris Carter, on HBO, talking about ex-linebacker Bill Romanowski, who took a turn on 60 Minutes to plug his new book, which acknowledges his steroid use: “He is a dirty player. When you go on the field with him at the beginning of a game or catch a ball he would tell you, ‘Carter, I am going to kill you. I am going to end your career. I am going to take your knees out.’ Now there are certain aspects of football that we all know. They are not your typical, average 9-to-5 jobs, but why do we have to get to the point that we have to accept stuff like this?” Vikings center Matt Birk, to Sports Illustrated, on reports that his teammates flew in strippers from out of state on the now-infamous boat cruise: “I think it’s a slap in the face to Minnesota strippers. Don’t they have a union?” Billy Witz covers the NFL for the Daily News.

Moore’s name is back in the news, dragged there by Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson, who has equaled Moore’s NFL record of scoring a touchdown in 18 consecutive games. If you haven’t heard of Moore, it’s probably because the closest anyone had come to his record, set from 1963-64, was O.J. Simpson, who had 14 in a row in 1975. The NFL was a different place when Moore starred for the Colts from the mid-’50s to mid-’60s. It was beginning its transition from a mom-and-pop operation, which paid so little that players worked in the offseason, to the multi-billion dollar cultural behemoth it is today. Moore, though, would have fit in quite well in today’s game. To anyone who watched football on television last weekend, there was little doubt who the two most dynamic players were: USC’s Reggie Bush on Saturday and Tomlinson on Sunday. center_img Mention Lenny Moore’s name around Baltimore and anyone worth a crab cake will tell you all about the Hall of Fame running back and receiver – or any other Baltimore Colt from the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s, be it icons like Johnny Unitas and Raymond Berry to foot soldiers like Rich Volk and Norm Bulach. Move outside the beltway and to the under-30 demographic, and a good many people wouldn’t know Lenny Moore from Lenny Bruce. last_img read more

Eastern Ventura County’s room to grow runs low

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Two deals, one big and one small, on opposite sides of the Conejo Grade, say a lot about the commercial market in eastern Ventura County. It looks a lot like those in the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys. Tight, with not much room to grown. “The real issue is that there is no land left,” said Michael Foxworthy, executive vice president and regional manager of GVA Daum’s office in Camarillo. Foxworthy represented Canyon Mesa Inc., which recently sold 28 acres in Westlake Village to Westlake Plaza Center East LLC, a joint venture between Steadfast Business Properties of Newport Beach and Amstar Group of Denver. Maury Panza of Collins Commercial represented the buyers and terms were not disclosed. And it might be a long time before a deal like this is seen again, Foxworthy said. This is likely the last big site that can be developed between Sherman Oaks and Santa Barbara, he said. “We’re running out of land and we’re going to run out of buildings.” This development group is going to add to the supply, though. It’s planning Westlake Plaza, an eight-building complex consisting of 482,215 square feet near Townsgate Road and the 101 Freeway and Lakeview Canyon and Westlake boulevards. Foxworthy said that the vacancy rate in the Conejo Valley and Ventura Plain is 7.1 percent, and it’s 5.7 percent in Westlake Village. That means those markets are considered at capacity. So once these buildings are up – construction should start early next year – tenants should follow. “In the few days since Steadfast has acquired the property, we have already begun to receive calls from interested parties,” he said. The project would draw businesses from the West San Fernando Valley and the Westside of Los Angeles. John DeGrinis sees the same kind of market dynamic on the other side of the Conejo Grade in Camarillo. “We’ve run out of land virtually everywhere,” said DeGrinis, a senior vice president of Colliers Seeley International. “We’ve really approached build-out in a lot of areas of our region.” That assessment applies to space for industrial and commercial projects. One of DeGrinis’ latest transactions illustrates this predicament. He worked on the sale of one of the last parcels of undeveloped land in the Camarillo Ranch Business Center at 4011 Camino Ranch. His client, Howard California Properties, paid $2.3 million for the 2.94-acre site. That’s neither a big parcel nor a big price. But big does apply, in this case. The deal worked out to $17.85 per square foot, which DeGrinis believes is the highest price paid on this basis for raw land in Ventura County. The land had already been approved for development of a 48,526-square-foot building, so that will save his client some time, and created additional value for the seller. “All he has to do is go to the city, pay his fees and up we go,” DeGrinis said.

Mbarara City hope to bank on previous win as Kyetume come to town

(PHOTO/File)Mbarara City will hope to bank on their slim victory over Onduparaka on Tuesday as they welcome Kyetume to Kakyeka Stadium on Friday for a StarTimes Uganda Premier League game.The Ankole Lions had gone six games without a win, losing four in that run, but managed to grab all the three points against the West Nile side in form of a 2-1 win ending the unwanted run.Forward Solomon Okwalinga was the hero on Tuesday meaning all eyes will be on him for another winning performance. Okwalinga scored both Mbarara’s goals, with the second coming in added time.Brian Sseyondo is still in charge of the team as caretaker, and he will hope that Tuesday’s victory motivates players and goes ahead to restore confidence.Winning tomorrow is going to be a tall ask though as the side hasn’t been able to register back to back victories this term, however, with Kyetume as the opposing side, the Ankole Lions will look to achieve that.Although with mixed results, the visitors who early this week parted company with coach George Best Nsimbe enjoyed a promising start to their maiden season in top flight, impressing with their displays. The debutants have actually amassed five wins, however, their performance has dropped.They have lost their last two games, conceding ten goals while scoring just one in those two games. Before their 7-1 massacre by Onduparaka, the side had let in just eight goals. Only Vipers, KCCA and SC Villa had conceded less, but now they head into tomorrow’s game as the third joint worst defenders in the league along with their hosts.Kyetume sit ninth in the league with 16 points while Mbarara are four places and three points down.Comments last_img read more

Report suggests EPA, Corps exceeding authority on WOTUS

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe (R-Oklahoma), chair of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, released a report detailing examples of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Army Corps of Engineers’ efforts to expand their jurisdiction over U.S. waters beyond Congressional intent. The report is the result of the majority staff’s investigation into how EPA and the Corps are interpreting and implementing their authority under the Clean Water Act.Although the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals has ordered a nationwide stay on enforcement of EPA’s Waters of the U.S. (WOTUS) rule, the report demonstrates that EPA is, in fact, enforcing the rule and expanding its jurisdiction.“When Congress passed the Clean Water Act, their intention was to create balanced, practical policies to protect America’s water resources. NCGA supports the goals of the Clean Water Act, and we remain committed to working with the EPA and other stakeholders to protect our water resources,” said Chip Bowling, National Corn Growers Association president. “But this report suggests that EPA is trying to expand its authority unlawfully and demonstrates that the Waters of the U.S. rule does not work. The rule does not provide farmers with the clarity and certainty they need.“That’s why we are asking Congress to once again take up S. 1140, a bill that would allow the EPA, the Corps, farmers, and others to collaborate on a better WOTUS rule that makes sense for everyone. Let’s work together on a new rule that gives farmers the certainty they need while protecting America’s water resources.”In 2015, 11 Senators wrote to the EPA and the Corps that they reserved the right to support efforts to revise the WOTUS rule, should EPA enforcement erode traditional exemptions.Click here for the full report.last_img read more
