  • Red-hot Raptors complete L.A. sweep

    first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “We gave up 34 points in the first quarter and I thought that it was going to be a long night,” Toronto coach Dwane Casey said. “The second unit, Terrence and that group came in and changed the game; started getting into bodies and getting into players, being physical. I thought that changed the mentality.”The Raptors beat the Clippers for the fourth straight time, completing a second straight season sweep. It also marked the first time in franchise history the Raptors swept both Los Angeles teams in the same season, having beaten the Lakers in both meetings already.The Raptors’ winning streak is the second-longest in franchise history, one short of the team-record set in the 2001-02 season.“We are playing team basketball, so that’s how it goes,” Ross said. “It’s halfway through the season so we all know how to play. We all know where we like the ball and the tendencies of the other players, so it’s all about playing together.”Chris Paul had 23 points and 11 assists for the Clippers, and DeAndre Jordan had 15 points and 13 rebounds. JJ Redick added 17 points. TORONTO >> The Toronto Raptors used a stellar game from its reserves to cruise past the Los Angeles Clippers for their season-high eighth straight win.All-Star guard Kyle Lowry scored 21 points, Jonas Valanciunas had 20 and DeMar DeRozan added 18 as the Raptors beat the Clippers 112-94 on Sunday.Toronto’s backups outscored their Clippers counterparts 51-29 while shooting 57.6 percent and finishing with their highest total of the season. Terrence Ross led the reserves with 18 points on 5-for-7 shooting on 3-pointers for his fourth straight game with at least 10 points off the bench. Cory Joseph had 12 points, and Patrick Patterson and Bismack Biyombo added 10 each.center_img Los Angeles — which fell to 11-3 while Blake Griffin recovers from a strained left quad — led by as many as 13 points in the first quarter, but Toronto’s second unit sparked a change in the second quarter as they began the period on a 17-3 run to turn the game around and help the Raptors take a 62-49 lead at halftime.Clippers coach Doc Rivers didn’t mince his words when it came to discussing the performance of his bench players.“They were just awful,” he said. “I think that’s it. It’s rare when you lose by 18 points and your starters all have a plus. That doesn’t happen very often. Our bench has been good but tonight they were awful.”The Clippers got within four points at one point in the third, but the Raptors then pulled away again. With Toronto leading 78-71 with 1:48 left in the quarter, Joseph made a layup and DeRozan followed with a 3 in the final minute to push the lead to 12 heading into the fourth.“It’s not about the first unit, the second unit, it’s our team,” Paul said. “There’s been nights where the starters have come out and haven’t played well and the second unit has brought us back so I told us after the game that we’ve just got to find a way to put it all together.”NotesThe newest Clipper, Jeff Ayres played five minutes and had two points on free throws. Ayres signed a 10-day contract on Saturday. He had previously been playing for the Idaho Stampede of the NBA Development League, averaging 16.3 points, 9.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists while appearing in 23 games. The power forward has previously played in 220 NBA games with Portland, Indiana and San Antonio, winning a championship with the Spurs in 2013-14. … Before Sunday’s game, Paul had averaged 10.6 assists per game against the Raptors, the most of any player against Toronto in the franchise’s history.last_img read more

  • Latham reclaims senior crown with wire-to-wire victory

    first_img Lincolnshire’s Richard Latham completed a wire-to-wire victory in the English senior men’s championship at Kirby Muxloe, Leicestershire – beating the field by a hefty five shots.It’s the second time Latham (Image © Leaderboard Photography) has won the title and he commented: “It feels terrific, I am delighted.”He claimed his crown after a final round which had everything: a first tee wobble, a dramatic charge from a rival, birdies galore – and dogged determination from the new champion.At the end of it Latham, the general manager at Woodhall Spa, was level par for the championship, returning four-over 75 in the final round. The runner-up was David Niven (Newbury & Crookham), who set the final round alight with three birdies in his first five holes.Latham made a meteoric start to his senior career in 2013, but came to Kirby with a point to prove, after losing his England senior team place last year. “I have come out and proved I can still play, which is what I wanted to do. I was desperately keen to prove that to myself,” he said.He made his intentions clear with a superb first round of four-under 67, followed up with level par 71 at Rothley Park – the championship’s co-host – and at the start of the final round he held a seven shot lead over Niven, Chris Reynolds (Littlestone) and Andrew Stracey (Denham).But, such a big lead can be as much a challenge as a comfort and Latham was edgy on the first tee and ended up topping his opening drive. “It was probably the worst shot I have hit in my entire 40-year competitive career, but I did make a good bogey!” he said afterwards.A couple of unlucky breaks later and Latham was three over after four. Meanwhile Niven, a senior international, was charging – and the gap was narrowing.Latham showed his mettle with birdies on five and six, where he struck his shot of the championship. In the first round he had opted to lay up short of the water hazard in front of the green, but this time he went for it, arrowed his shot straight at the pin and holed the 10-footer. “I thought I’d better get a move on!” he said.Both players also birdied the eighth, but after that Niven’s charge stalled and Latham was able to extend his lead once more. He got back under par for the championship with a birdie on the long 17th where he played a superb approach to about 6ft, but the short 18th cost him a shot after he bunkered his tee shot.By then, though, it didn’t matter. He’d avoided paying attention to his rivals’ play but he did know he had a very comfortable cushion as he played the last.He paid tribute to his wife Lisa, for her support, and to his coach, David Ridley. “My coach told me ‘play for yourself, concentrate on what you are doing’ and that’s such sound advice. I gave very little thought to anyone else and concentrated on me.”The spectators, however, were well aware of the scoring as Latham and Niven – playing in separate groups – collected eight birdies between them.Elsewhere there was good play from Paul Plant who scored a final round 73, composed of 16 pars and two bogeys, which moved him into a tie for third place with David Nelson (Northenden). Fifth place was shared by Andrew Stracey and Keith Young (Ashridge).Click here for full scores 3 Jun 2016 Latham reclaims senior crown with wire-to-wire victory last_img read more

  • Rob Rice Homes for the Holidays: Dining Options

    first_imgFacebook0Tweet0Pin0 Rob Rice is Thurston County’s largest local home builder and was voted the Best of South Sound for 2013. He has built more than 3000 homes over the last 30 years. He and his wife Helena live in Olympia with their two sons; Alex Michael and Carson. Rob is a graduate of Washington State University with degrees in construction management and architecture. Submitted by Barb Lally for Rob Rice HomesHome buyers still seek floorplans with formal dining rooms which are found in many Rob Rice Homes.Family traditions… entertaining friends…celebrations with lively conversation…dinner parties and sharing good food—they all involve the dining room.What is your picture of holiday entertaining or a family gathering? Is it a dinner at a long table with linens and china? Or maybe you prefer a buffet line in the kitchen with football on in the family room and an open dining room where guests can choose their seat.No matter what your traditions or plans for the holidays, there is a Rob Rice Home with the perfect dining area to suit your preferred hospitality and your family’s needs.Formal Dining Rooms are not PasséRecent focus groups and surveys asked home buyers what they want in a home and many still want the traditional dining in a room separate from the kitchen.One recent survey this spring said that nearly two-thirds of home buyers want both a great room for casual dining and one or two more formal spaces.Formal dining rooms are for those who love to entertain, especially those who enjoy sit-down dinners with candlelight or a dimmed chandelier. For some, the formal dining room provides a place to decorate and dramatically set the mood.“The formal dining room is a great place to celebrate special family occasions and holidays,” says Lisa Poundstone, Home Staging® expert and owner of Design Smart Home Staging &A butler’s pantry is ideal for homeowners who entertain large groups.Redesign. “You can create different looks for each of the seasons by layering the table with different colors and textures using tablecloths, runners, placemats, chargers, dishes and napkins. The centerpiece, typically the focal point of the dining table, can be a simple vase with your favorite flowers or a more dramatic combination of candles and flowers.”The formal dining rooms available in some Rob Rice Homes are a place to display art as well as your crystal, china and silver. Tables for eight and family china hutches, often hard to place in other parts of the home, fit well in the formal dining area. In a pre-sale of a Rob Rice Home, a buyer would also have a choice of several lovely chandelier lighting fixtures.Both the Rainier plan and the home we call the Magnolia at Evergreen Heights, a conveniently-located community nestled into gently rolling hills in a country setting in Lacey, offer a formal dining room.And, in addition to their beautifully-designed kitchens with alder cabinets, stainless steel appliances, slab granite or quartz counters and hardwood flooring, these homes have a special “butler pantry” between the kitchen and the dining room with a granite countertop and a wine cooler that allow you to stage food and drink for a formal dinner and serves as storage for that special holiday dinnerware and any other items to graciously serve your guests.At Campus Highlands in the Meridian Campus amid the beautiful Northwest woodlands and a neighboring popular golf course there are three gorgeous quality-built homes that include formal dining rooms: the Riviera, the Sahalee and the one-story Valhalla.All of these homes have the potential for both formal and casual dining as they have a dining nook off of the kitchen as well as the open and light great room concept for the wonderful flexibility of entertaining and dining in two separate spaces.Open concept dining rooms are popular for more casual dining and family gatherings like the Spruce plan at Evergreen Heights.Open, Casual Dining According to the National Homebuilders Association report “What Home Buyers Really Want,” 66 percent of buyers said a dining room is either essential or desirable in their home.But that does not necessarily mean they all want a formal space. Many homebuyers today are looking for open floor plans, where the kitchen, family room and dining room share one space and a busy family can see and talk to one another.Many Rob Rice Homes have the great room concept and have kitchens with granite or quartz raised counters where family members can pull up a stool for breakfast. The popular Spruce at EvergreenHeights is an example of a one-story home with a stylish kitchen that looks out onto a bright great room for more casual dining.Rob Rice has the Home you WantFind the home that matches your wish list at any of the nine sought-after Rob Rice Communities throughout the area. You can also find a quality-built home on an individual, larger-sized lot outside of our communities at one of our Select Home Sites in ThurstonCounty.And don’t forget that the area’s top rated builder, Rob Rice Homes, can custom-build your home with features specific to your family’s lifestyle, including your dining preferences.last_img read more

  • Differently abled persons given ‘agriculture experience’

    first_img…charged to use agriculture for entrepreneurshipThe Guyana School of Agriculture (GSA) on Wednesday welcomed a group of differently abled persons to their operation at Mon Repos, on the East Coast of Demerara (ECD) where first-hand information was provided on the dynamics of agricultural activities.Participants touring the facility during the visitThe initiative, called the Agr-Ability Programme, is the first of its kind and aims to attract persons with disabilities into the sector. It was made possible through collaboration with the National Council for Persons with Disabilities.Throughout the day, persons were given a tour of the facility and the countless areas of agriculture which can be pursued. The GSA ranges in a number of fields, including farming, livestock production, forestry, animal health, and agro-processing.Those who attended came from Regions Three (Essequibo Islands-West Demerara), Four (Demerara-Mahaica), Five (Mahaica-Berbice), Six (East Berbice-Corentyne) and 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice).Present at the event was Agriculture Minister with responsibility for Rural Affairs, Valerie Adams-Yearwood, who insisted that persons with disabilities should take advantage of such opportunities to advance their personal growth.Meanwhile, Coordinator Ganesh Singh urged the gathering to take up agriculture as a form of entrepreneurship. They have been trying to encourage more persons to get involved in such initiatives.Singh explained, “Over the past three to four years, we’ve been trying to get more persons with disabilities involved in agriculture. Whether it’s at the level of food processing or starting their own little farm, in ensuring that we start our own little business, become entrepreneurs and plant those two plots in your backyard”.He added, “We need to go in that direction and today could be the beginning of that. Some years ago, we started some hydroponics. With this visit, I hope we can definitely restart those initiatives”.This year, Agriculture Month is celebrated under the theme: “Sustainable Agriculture for Ensuring Food Safety and a Green Economy”. A calendar of activities were launched throughout this time. The main highlights include the National Tree Day observance at Ebini in the Upper Berbice River and World Food Day observance at Lake Mainstay, Wyaka, in Region Two.last_img read more
