first_imgBy Don Martin IIWHITE CITY, Ore. (June 2) – After taking the lead from Preston Jones early in the race, Nick Trench­ard went on to victory in the 25-lap IMCA Modified main event Saturday at Southern Ore­gon Speedway.This was the sixth annual Roger Haudenshild Tribute race and the win paid $2,000 to Trenchard, new to the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot. It was also his third win in the big event.Jones paced just one lap before Trenchard made an outside pass to gain the lead. On the third lap, Albert Gill took second and Duane Orsburn made his way to third.By then, Trenchard was a straightaway in the lead, leaving behind him a good battle between Gill and Orsburn for second. Trenchard was working lapped traffic and in command when the caution flew on lap 11. Orsburn worked his way to second following the second restart.Trenchard set a rapid pace and soon had a straightaway advantage. The man making the charge was Dave Duste Jr., who had fifth on the last restart and took fourth from Jones on lap 17.Orsburn did a good job of handling the pressure in the battle for second, but Gill made a low pass on lap 22 to regain the position. Trenchard was never seriously threatened in posting an impres­sive victory.Gill was a strong second and Orsburn spun on the final lap as he was battling Duste for third. Duste claimed the third position, followed by Zach Fettinger and Jones.Trenchard added $200 to his total by winning the special 11-lap race.Fred Ryland was the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod feature winner.

first_img Published on December 14, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Ryne: [email protected] Quentin Hillsman rose to his feet on the sideline in anticipation of La’Shay Taft’s wide-open 3-point attempt from the left wing. Taft set her feet, received a cross-court pass and let it go.The Syracuse head coach then threw his arms in the air and tilted his head, trying to will the ball into the basket. But a split second later, his arms and head went down.It was Taft’s sixth shot of the first half against Coppin State. And it was her sixth miss.‘Some days we have on days, some days we have off days,’ Taft said. ‘It’s life, you know?’For Taft and Syracuse, it seems that nearly every game this season has been an off day from beyond the arc. The Orange (7-3, 0-1 Big East) is shooting a paltry 23.2 percent from 3-point range through 10 games this year. That dismal shooting performance has made Syracuse a one-dimensional team on offense, with a predictable strategy heading into each game. It’s something that has played a large part in SU losing three of its last four games.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse will try again to find its stroke on the perimeter against Xavier (3-5) at the Duel in the Desert on Sunday at 3 p.m. in Las Vegas. The Orange also plays Oklahoma (4-3) and Ohio (5-5) as part of the tournament.The Orange went 12-for-76 (15.8 percent) from long range in its last four games and relied too heavily on its inside game as a result. Every time down the floor, the first option is to get the ball to SU center Kayla Alexander and the forwards on the block.Without even a marginal threat on the perimeter, though, opponents have keyed on shutting down the inside, daring Syracuse’s guards to shoot as they packed the paint on defense. It was a strategy an inferior Coppin State team employed to give the Orange a scare in a 56-50 narrow SU victory last Saturday. But even as the turnovers piled up, Syracuse continued to throw the ball down low into traffic.‘We got in our high-low and when we didn’t get it, it would be a turnover and we were still were looking and were forcing it, pounding it in,’ SU guard Carmen Tyson-Thomas said. ‘Because when you’re not making shots, you have to do something else.’Looking inside proved to be the only option against Coppin State. So as Tyson-Thomas said, the Orange forced the ball into the post.On one possession early in the second half, Rachel Coffey came down the floor and scanned her options. She zeroed in on Alexander, who was fighting for position in the low post and lobbed a pass in her direction from the top of the key.But Alexander had already turned away and the ball fell into the waiting arms of Eagles center Jeanine Manley. Hillsman could only lean back helplessly against the scorer’s table, bewildered by the play as Coppin State rushed up the court for an easy bucket in transition.The Eagles knew exactly what to expect on each Orange possession. And it showed.Syracuse finished with 27 turnovers and went 17-for-70 from the field — its worst shooting performance of the year.‘The past couple games we haven’t really shot the ball (well) from the perimeter,’ Hillsman said. ‘But obviously we can see what those results are when you don’t. … So we need to get some balance and we need to get our guards scoring the basketball.’It starts with Taft. The guard arrived at Syracuse as a heralded recruit known for her accuracy from 3-point range. But in her sophomore season, that shooting touch has inexplicably disappeared. She is 15-for-71 from long range this season, a 21.1 percent clip.Her struggles were perhaps most obvious last Saturday against Coppin State. She missed all six shot attempts in the first half, and her off day continued after the break.After misfiring on her first two shots of the second half, Taft shot an air ball from beyond the arc on the left wing with just over six minutes to play. On SU’s ensuing possession, Taft revealed her frustration. Despite being outnumbered 1-on-4 on the break and with Hillsman urging her to pull it out, she forced the issue and missed a left-handed layup.It was her 10th and final shot of the night. Ten misses.‘I’m going through a little process now, trying to find the rituals and get a rhythm, see what works for me,’ Taft said. ‘I’ve got to do something consistent and have a good rhythm to getting things done. So that’s a process that I’m in now in trying to find myself and my game.’[email protected] Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

first_imgMichael Blygen’s hat-trick rescued Boys’ Town from embarrassment against lower leaguers Maxfield Park, in their Locker Room Sports KSAFA/Jackie Bell Knockout game at Collie Smith Complex yesterday.The home team surrendered a two-goal lead to the Major League outfit, which came back from two-nil down to level at 2-2. But two late goals from the former Tivoli Gardens striker saw the home team win 4-2.After a dour and goalless first half, Boys’ Town went in front just before the hour (59th) when Blygen flicked the ball over the Maxfield goalkeeper and it fell into the goal. Minutes later, Chavanney Willis made it 2-0 when he latched on to a through ball and slotted home.However, the visitors responded minutes later when Romaine Mullington was on the end of a good build-up to tap the ball past the Boys’ Town custodian. And before Boys’ Town realised what hit them, Nico Reynolds, Maxfield’s best player, equalised with a rasping shot from the edge of the box.Maxfield nearly went ahead in the 80th minute, but referee Carvel Banton adjudged that the ball had not crossed the goalline. Then on the counter, Boys’ Town went straight up field and Blygen capitalised on a loose ball to make it 3-2.The former Humble Lion and Rivoli player sealed the win two minutes from time when he broke away and calmly slotted home.Blygen spent the second-half of last season in the Dominican Republic, but missed most of that campaign through injury.”So far in the Premier League, things have been very disappointing. I hope this will be a stepping stone for me to get more playing time and deliver for my team and try to help them make the top four,” he said.”Last season, I joined Boys’ Town in January, then went on a trial overseas in Dominica Republic. I made the team and played three matches, but injury got the better of me. But this season I am back, so I am just taking it a step at a time and doing my best and see what happens.”So I hope this hat-trick gives coach more confidence in me because I have always worked hard, but the team has been up and down; we are not being consistent. So I hope that this is a stepping stone for me to get time on the pitch,” he reasoned.Coach Andrew Price is also hoping this is a turning point for his striker.”I hope that this will be a catalyst for him (Blygen) to assist us in the third round. Boys’ Town always play better football in the third round, and we are preparing ourselves assiduously to really make a good run and see where it leads us,” he declared.Yesterday’s resultsBarbican 1 UWI 0Waterhouse 2 Maverley/Hughenden 1Boys’ Town 4 Maxfield 2Today’s games3 p.m. August Town vs Bull Bay at UWI Mona Bowl3 p.m. Olympic Gardens vs Real Mona at Cling Cling Oval3 p.m. Rockfort vs Cavalier at Rockfort3 p.m. Cooreville Gardens vs Arnett Gardens at Duhaney Park7 p.m. Harbour View vs Tivoli Gardens at Harbour View Stadiumlast_img read more

first_imgSrinagar: In a major operation, Jammu and Kashmir Police on Wednesday gunned down a top Lashkar-e-Taiba militant who was responsible for attacking a leading apple trader’s family in which a girl child had also been injured. Some policemen were also injured in the exchange of fire but are said to be out of danger. Asif Maqbool Bhat was killed in a brief shootout with the police and security forces in Sopore around 9 a.m. “When we intercepted Bhat today (Wednesday), he attacked us. He threw a grenade at us. A few police personnel were injured but they are out of danger. In the ensuing encounter, the militant was neutralised,” Director General of Police Dilbag Singh said in a press briefing. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details He said Bhat had attacked the family of Haji Hamidullah Rather, a prominent fruit grower of Sopore and a resident of Dangerpora area, on September 8. “The militant fired at the family members of Rather, injuring four of them including a girl aged between four and seven years. The girl is admitted here in a hospital. Other members of the family were also evacuated from that place.” The girl was Rather’s daughter Asma. Bhat, and his associates, had also shot and injured a migrant labourer, identified as Shafi Alam, the same day, the DGP added. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday “The injured boy has been brought to a Srinagar hospital. I am told that his condition is fine and he is likely to be discharge any moment.” Bhat was also responsible for making use of over ground workers (OGWs) to print and publish posters threatening people to stay away from the fruit business, not to open shops and refrain from normal day-to-day activities, he said. “We were watching those activities. We were after these people who are involved in this. Eight people who are indulging in this kind of activities were apprehended by Sopore police along with the computers and other equipment they were using for printing those threatening letters and pasting them at various locations.” The DGP said that Bhat, along with two other fellow militants Sajjad and Mudassar, was very active in the area over the last one month and had created a lot of terror. “They were roaming around in villages, going to the people and threatening them, telling them not to go for daily chores… So we were tracking him.” On a specific input, police, along with other security forces, laid some “nakas” (checkpoints) close to Sopore town, the DGP said, adding Bhat was challenged to stop when he came. “Bhat, however, did not stop and threw a grenade on our party in which couple of our police personnel were injured but they are out of danger. He was later neutralised in the encounter. “With the killing of of Bhat, I believe that the area will heave a sigh of relief. The terror which he was creating there would be taken care of to some extent. We also know his other two associates and we are after them. We will see it in the near future. We will take care of them,” he said. The elimination of the top LeT member comes two days after the police, along with the army and other security forces including the Central Reserve Police Force, busted a terror module of the LeT in the Sopore area with the arrest of eight militants. Sopore’s Senior Superintendent of Police Javaid Iqbal said the men had hatched a conspiracy to print posters threatening locals from venturing out of their homes, either for trade, travel, schools or office. They used to distribute these posters in local villages.last_img read more

first_imgThe berries tasted different. The blueberries and cranberries didn’t look the same either.When elders from Fort McKay near Alberta’s oilsands went to their traditional picking areas, things just didn’t feel right. They knew something was off. But what?The First Nation’s questions eventually grew into a collaboration with university-based researchers that brought botanists out on traditional berry-picking trips in an attempt to use western science to investigate community concerns.Sure enough, the elders were right. Berries closer to the oilsands were different.That effort to unite the white coats and the bush jackets was so successful that the Alberta government is extending the model into fish and wetland projects.“We have a lot of scientists working in the area, but they don’t always get to meet the elders and learn from them,” said Jenelle Baker, a botanist who helped direct the research. “A lot of the scientists that are doing that are having some pretty big, almost life-changing moments.”Reconciliation between Canada and First Nations is playing out not only in legislatures and courtrooms but in labs across the country. Research grant applications often require provision for what is called traditional ecological knowledge and Indigenous communities have a growing influence on what questions are explored.It isn’t always easy. Differences between science rooted in European ideas and the conceptual tools of Indigenous people are real and both parties still sometimes struggle for common ground.“Anything science can’t measure on the x and y axis, they tend to disregard,” said Elmer Ghostkeeper, an engineer, anthropologist and member of the Alberta government’s Indigenous Wisdom Advisory Panel — a group charged with bringing Indigenous perspectives to environmental monitoring.“Everything is about measurement and anything you can’t measure is not scientific,” said Leroy Little Bear, a University of Lethbridge professor and another panel member.On the other hand, individual experience and oral history isn’t always enough, said Andrew Derocher, a University of Alberta polar bear biologist with extensive field experience.“There’s been a push to try to move the traditional ecological knowledge into the science and that has not worked very well. They are two very different entities.“Traditional ecological knowledge isn’t feeding directly into the scientific questions that we have anymore.”Science isolates a variable, notes its behaviour under controlled conditions and extrapolates that into a general rule. The scientist stands apart, neutrally observing.Indigenous people have been more interested in relationships between many things at once as they interact in the real world. That real world includes the observer.“I am nature,” said Ghostkeeper. “I am the environment.”That perspective inevitably includes feelings and values — love for a place, for example. “Science can’t measure love,” Ghostkeeper said.But those feelings and values are real and they matter. In Fort McKay, they were what started the whole study.“They have subtler indicators of contamination,” Baker said. “Often, that involves symbolic, spiritual contamination.”Sometimes, science itself causes the contamination. Inuit have long objected to polar bear research that involves tranquilizing, handling and taking samples.“It is very disrespectful to the animal,” said Paul Irngaut of Nunavut Tunngavik Inc., which monitors the Nunavut land claim. “It goes against our beliefs and it goes against our values.”And even in successful collaborations, Indigenous concerns sometimes leave scientists nonplussed, Baker said.“If we’re doing a traditional land-use assessment and we’re talking about the landscape, what happens when someone brings up the serpent that lives under the muskeg?”Still, both scientists and Indigenous leaders understand they have a lot to offer each other.“We welcome science,” said Irngaut. “It enhances our knowledge.”Derocher credits Inuit hunters with invaluable advice about bear behaviour and habitat.“We’re talking to people who have been on the land for decades,” he said.Fred Wrona, Alberta’s chief scientist, said Indigenous input has been at the heart of research programs he’s worked on.“It’s important for us, when we’re reporting on the condition of the environment, to understand the values of that environment,” he said. “It’s broadened my perspective. A classical western scientist, you tend to look at components in isolation from each other and try to understand all these pieces.“The Indigenous perspective has always reinforced the importance of understanding relationships between components of the environment.”Ultimately, western and Indigenous viewpoints may not be that far apart. Little Bear points to the findings of quantum physics, which conclude that the observer and the observed are part of the same system and that the only constant in the universe is flux.“A subatomic particle, isolated — which is the western approach to science — doesn’t have much meaning. It’s only when you take that particle and relate it to something else that it begins to have meaning.“We may measure. But we also have to relate.” — Follow Bob Weber on Twitter at @row1960Bob Weber, The Canadian Presslast_img read more
