Arnold Palmer King of the PGA tour dies at 87

No Comments on Arnold Palmer King of the PGA tour dies at 87

first_imgArnold Palmer, a Pennsylvania greenskeeper’s son who became one of golf’s most charismatic champions and made millions of dollars by turning his popular “everyman” image into one of the most lucrative sports brands in the world, died Sunday at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Presbyterian Hospital in Pittsburgh, according to his longtime assistant Doc Griffin. Palmer was hospitalized in preparation for heart surgery, but Griffin said he did not know the exact cause of death. He was 87.         Palmer rose from a blue-collar background to become part of the sport’s royalty — he was colloquially known on the PGA tour as “The King” — and frequent playing partner of U.S. presidents. He left an indelible mark on the world of golf in the form of nearly 300 signature-designed courses, and Arnold Palmer Enterprises, which handled his endorsements and other ventures, helped make Palmer the first golfer to make his name a worldwide franchise.         Many credit Palmer with inventing golf as a televised sport, becoming the game’s first well-known star by helping to put a name and face to the game. Palmer’s vitality and boyishly handsome looks helped attract many new fans to the sport who watched on television. “I’ve got sex written all over my face,” Palmer once said.         Emerging as a superstar athlete in the 1950s, Palmer did not play golf courses; he attacked them. Armed with a brutish swing that more resembled a hockey slap shot than a daisy cutter, Palmer brought energy and zest to the staid game that men before him such as Bobby Jones and Sam Snead played wearing tweed coats and knickers.         Standing 6-feet-2, with broad shoulders, beefy arms and massive hands, Palmer was known for bombing drives off the tee and then stalking his ball down the fairway, striding long bounds while dangling a thin cigarette between his fingers.last_img read more

Common threads unite people at Amboy quilt show

No Comments on Common threads unite people at Amboy quilt show

first_imgCathy Green of Washougal has multiple quilting projects going right now, but that’s not uncommon for a quilter.“You’ve gotta get out of the fabric that’s in front of your face and look at some other things every once in a while,” she said while examining the quilts on display at the Mountain Valley Grange hall in Amboy, hung as part of the North Clark County Historical Museum’s 12th annual quilt show.Dozens of quilts, from heirlooms to original compositions, with all manner of block patterns and fabric choices, were on display at the grange and museum over the weekend.Among the quilts on display was a loaned “crazy quilt” from the late 19th century to early 20th century. Crazy quilts are typically made with a complicated, seemingly haphazard patchwork of varying materials, and embellished with elaborate embroidery.Green said it was her first visit to the Amboy quilt show, and that seeing others’ work is a way to find inspiration or work through a problem.“It’s a new way to look at something that I’m working on or thinking about working on,” she said.It’s also nice to see that not everyone is perfect, Green said, and that there’s always room to keep trying and improve.last_img read more

Slowmoving landslide near Oso closes State Route 530

No Comments on Slowmoving landslide near Oso closes State Route 530

first_imgOSO, Wash. (AP) — The discovery of a slow-moving landslide near the site of a 2014 Washington state mudslide that killed 43 people has prompted transportation officials to close a state highway until Thursday.Crews with the Washington Department of Transportation were notified last week about ground movement near Montague Creek along the south side of State Route 530 near the tiny northwestern town of Oso. On Friday, crews saw additional movement at the site and the road was closed as a precaution. The area is about 60 miles (97 kilometers) northeast of Seattle.Geologists say the mudslide is the “reactivation of small portion of a previous landslide,” said Shari Ireton, spokeswoman for the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.Officials believe that recent heavy rains most likely contributed to the ground movement.Authorities sent out a voluntary evacuation notice to about a dozen homes in the area.The new landslide is about two miles west of the site of a deadly March 2014 mudslide that buried the highway under as much as 20 feet (6.1 meters) of mud and killed the 43 people.Tiffany Robles told KOMO-TV she decided to stay at a hotel Friday night instead of taking a long detour to get to get home. The highway closure means people wanting to travel between Oso and the town of Darrington must take an alternate route that adds at least an hour to each trip.last_img read more

As job openings abound employers look to younger workers

No Comments on As job openings abound employers look to younger workers

first_imgWith a wave of construction worker retirements looming, the Southwest Washington Contractors Association took its job-recruitment plans to the drawing board.It came back with a coloring book.The six-page book, to be handed out at the upcoming Dozer Day, tries to charm boys and girls who might someday put on a hard hat. It tells the story of a child who falls in love with the industry and, decades later, starts a construction company.“It’s just to create awareness that construction jobs can be fun and rewarding,” spokeswoman Andrea Smith said.Many industries in Clark County would like to create awareness about jobs right now, as unemployment levels stay consistently low and companies say they can’t keep up with demand. Many are turning to youth to fill their ranks.Not every industry uses the same approach, but trades especially seem to be making the most concerted efforts to recruit new, younger workers.“The job market is really good. There’s a huge demand,” said Deken Letinich, area representative for the Washington and Northern Idaho District Council of Laborers. He added that he never misses a chance to talk at a high school.Meanwhile, educators and economic development organizations are trying to meet demand by revving up career and technical education — what today’s parents once knew as “vocational school.”Help wantedThe Southwest Washington Contractors Association isn’t the only one with a children’s book.

Sen Cantwell praises volcano resources

No Comments on Sen Cantwell praises volcano resources

first_imgU.S. Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., addressed a new law that will dedicate more resources to volcano monitoring during a Thursday visit to the U.S. Geological Survey Cascades Volcano Observatory in Vancouver.The National Volcano Early Warning and Monitoring System Act, which was signed into law last week as part of a massive land management package, directs resources into early warning and monitoring systems. The idea is to give scientists the tools to provide faster, more accurate information in the case of an emergency.The law allocates $55 million over five years to beef up volcano monitoring systems with more sensors, seismometers and GPS devices. It also combines the network of five volcano monitoring stations nationwide into a single system in an effort to ensure 24/7 coverage and standardize the monitoring process.“We definitely can’t stop volcanoes from erupting. But we can put better tools in place to give the communities and scientists in place better information,” Cantwell said, addressing a room of scientists and local policymakers. “And from that, our local communities can develop better communication and response plans.”Bart Hansen, Vancouver’s mayor pro tem, also attended the event. He said that Southwest Washington’s growth since Mount St. Helens’ major eruption in 1980 means that the stakes are even higher now.last_img read more

VAR will have a big influence on World Cup – Lopetegui

No Comments on VAR will have a big influence on World Cup – Lopetegui

first_imgSpain manager Julen Lopetegui believes that the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) will have a major “influence” on the World Cup this summer and believes that there is no point complaining about the technologyThe International Football Association Board in Zurich in March gave VAR their unanimous approval and voted for the system to be used permanently.While goal-line technology was used in the previous World Cup in Brazil in 2014, this will be the first time that VAR will debut in world football’s biggest competition and will be used by the match officials to determine whether any errors were committed in regards to decisions for penalties, goals, straight red cards and mistaken identity.Lopetegui, who will be hoping to erase Spain’s previous poor display in the 2014 World Cup with a strong run in Russia, believes that due to the players having a lack of experience with VAR it will have a heavy influence on games and he will be making sure his squad is fully prepared for the system.“It’s certainly an important issue, no doubt about that,” said the 51-year-old told AS.David Villa, SpainQuiz: How much do you know about David Villa? Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to test your knowledge about Spanish legendary forward David Villa.“VAR is going to influence and condition lots of games at the World Cup. For example, using it will mean stopping and starting games; that in itself has an effect on the continuity and rhythm of them.“Spain like to have long spells with the ball and wear down their opponents, so we’ll need to be ready for what is a brand new situation for us. Of course, we’ll make sure we are fully prepared for VAR and all its various scenarios, for when matches are stopped and then started again.“I’ve analysed where VAR is in use and see that there are usually a lot of goals scored just after stoppages for it, which shows that teams make full use of the break in play and concentration of their opponents.“But there’s no point in complaining about it as we must be ready for VAR. We’ll be studying it with the players and making sure they are prepared. It’s something we do need to take into account.”Spain has been drawn in Group B for the World Cup with Iran, Morocco and Euro 2016 Champions Portugal.last_img read more

United are believed to be in the race for Pochettino after sacking Jose Mourinho last week.

This time, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of National Security, Peter Turnquest has reported that the government is now faced with $150M of collateral calls left by the previous Christie administration.That is to say, that during their 5-year tenure, the Christie-administration made calls/demands to banks or other financial institutions to request collateral and/or payment for debt/loans/contracts they needed to have funded. Collectively, these were in excess of $150M and not repaid, thus leaving the new Minnis-administration in a risky fiscal position.Consequently, Turnquest revealed, “The Government is now required to provide a minimum of $70 million by the first week of July to meet this collateral call.” During his contribution to the 2017/18 Budget Debate in the House of Assembly last Wednesday, Turnquest also reported that the total outstanding payments of The Bahamas Treasury was $161,283,514.04.The Deputy Prime Minister also stated, “The Ministry of Finance was partially successful in negotiating temporary waivers but the obligation has not gone away.” He added that the figure owed may increase in the event of any further negative ratings action.  As a result, Turnquest admitted that employees and vendors have had to wait an “inordinate time for payment.”However, despite Opposition Leader Phillip Brave Davis’ initial questioning of the Government’s decision to borrow such a large fund, Turnquest said he was grateful that they have decided to accept this position, explaining “the emergency borrowing authority was the only prudent thing this administration can do to protect the financial reputation of The Bahamas.” Story By: Kay-Marie Fletcher #MagneticMediaNewscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Recommended for youlast_img read more
