PORTLAND — Investigators found an “incredible amount of pills” to treat anxiety and depression at the home of a volunteer high school wrestling coach who last month killed himself, the teenage son of a woman he had dated and that woman’s boyfriend in rural eastern Oregon.Jason Huston also shot the woman, Andria Bye, the mother of the 14-year-old. She survived.Police say they don’t have a clear-cut motive for the Aug. 18 shootings. Hermiston Police Chief Jason Edmiston said pills found at Huston’s home appeared to be prescribed through the VA. Police have been told that Huston served during the first Gulf War but have not confirmed his military service.“We are navigating the red tape of the VA to try and glean additional information and we have no timeline on when that may take place,” Edmiston said Wednesday.Edmiston also released a timeline of events that matches up with what was described after the shootings that left James “JJ” Hurtado, 14, and Kenneth Valdez, a fellow volunteer wrestling coach at Hermiston High School, another volunteer wrestling coach, dead in separate places.Edmiston said Huston picked up Hurtado about 10 a.m. at a grandparent’s house. He then drove him to a spot near the Umatilla River and killed Hurtado with one round from a handgun. He then drove toward the home of Valdez. He parked at an apartment building about 11 a.m. and walked 100 yards to the home.
In the early days of her career, Evelyn Nagornyy has already faced obstacles on her path to fulfill her dream of working on the pit crew for a racing team.But thanks to a donation from Dick Hannah Dealerships, buying a tool kit will not be one of them.Nagornyy, a first-year student in Clark College’s automotive technology program, and other students enrolled in the school’s Dick Hannah Initiative for Technician Education at Clark College, received basic tool kits valued at $4,000. College President Bob Knight and Dick Hannah, founder and owner of Dick Hannah Dealerships, presented gleaming red tool kits to the students in a brief ceremony at the college’s automotive shop.“We’re really helping educate and train,” Knight said. “It’s going to better our community.”The program, which began earlier this year, pairs automotive technology students with the dealership to give them experience in the shop, as well as a beginning set of tools to help in their classes. In exchange, students must complete their degree program and serve an internship in a Dick Hannah shop for six months after graduating.Before they start taking classes and throughout their degree program, students also have paid internships at Hannah, giving them hands-on experience. Doing so “creates a bridge to industry,” said Jason Crone, and instructor and program coordinator for the automotive technology program.“Students get a foundation in the industry before they start taking classes,” Crone said.Gary Schuler, corporate director for Dick Hannah Dealerships, said the company benefits as well. Schuler worked with the college to launch the program, and said by investing in students, the company guarantees it has a trained workforce in the years to come.

Patrick Timm is a local weather specialist. His column appears Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. Reach him at http://patricktimm.com. Things are looking a bit better on the weather side of things as far as the heat and the dry weather goes. Westerly winds off the coast began their eastward movement late Wednesday into Clark County, helping to push the Eagle Creek Fire back into the Gorge.The smoke will be slow to dissipate as the smoke shield from all the fires over Washington and Oregon had pushed well offshore so that smoke out over the ocean will need to move inland and past Clark County before we see perfectly clear skies.There still may be some smoke at upper levels from fires in Oregon. We’ll cool down to 78 to 80 degrees today and Friday and mid-70s on Saturday with a risk of showers. No wetting rains are in the forecast.Beginning Sunday, high pressure will build and we’ll go back into the 80s through mid-week. East winds are likely to reappear on Monday, which may cause some hot spots to flare up and more smoke heading our way. If east winds get going enough, we could possibly see 90 degrees again.I am sure many of the fires in the mountains in all of the western states will not be out until the snow flies. Besides the fires in Washington and Oregon, wildfires in Montana are destroying hundreds of thousands of acres.
The death of a man whose body was discovered at an east Vancouver storage business last week was an accident, according to the Clark County Sheriff’s Office.“During the investigation, detectives determined that the death was a result of a tragic accident,” Sgt. Brent Waddell said in an email.The man was identified by police as 70-year-old Thomas Dunlap.The sheriff’s office declined to offer more details about how the death happened.Dunlap’s body was found at about 7:30 a.m. Dec. 15 in the parking lot of East Vancouver RV and Boat Storage.Sgt. Fred Neiman previously told The Columbian the body was spotted lying on the ground in an open drive-thru area.Responding officers deemed the death suspicious as they were unable to immediately determine Dunlap’s cause of death, Neiman said.
A Portland woman accused of threatening a loss-prevention officer with a handgun while shoplifting items from a Vancouver Fred Meyer made a first appearance Friday in Clark County Superior Court.Danyielle L. Cunningham, 38, appeared on a warrant for first-degree robbery and second-degree unlawful possession of a firearm stemming from the June 17 incident.Vancouver police were called for a brandishing at Fred Meyer, 2500 Columbia House Blvd., and learned that a loss-prevention employee, Bryan Edmiston, had tried to stop a shoplifter who then displayed a handgun, according to an affidavit of probable cause.The woman, later identified by police as Cunningham, loaded up merchandise in her cart and walked out of the store without paying. As Edmiston approached her, she told him, “You need to back up,” while showing him a firearm. “You need to back up or you’re going to get hurt,” she said, according to the affidavit.Edmiston said he backed off and watched the woman load the stolen items into a vehicle with Oregon license plates. She then drove off. The woman made off with food, shoes and a fishing reel, totaling $166.74, court records state.
A man who kidnapped and shot at a homeless man after ambushing him, his spouse and their dog inside their vehicle was sentenced Thursday to six years in prison.Paul R. Woodman, 48, no address provided, pleaded guilty Thursday in Clark County Superior Court to second-degree kidnapping, second-degree assault and harassment-death threats in connection with the April 1 incident.A co-defendant in the case, John Wayne Maxwell, 38, of Vancouver, is set to change his plea Oct. 12.According to an affidavit of probable cause, Vancouver police were dispatched at about 11:30 a.m. to the 6000 block of Northeast St. Johns Boulevard for a reported kidnapping. The reporting person, Jennifer Talbot, said that two men — one armed with a handgun — had kidnapped her husband, Mark Hayes-Hanley. The armed assailant threatened to shoot her husband and the couple’s dog if she called police.Hours later, Hayes-Hanley returned to the area from where he was kidnapped and was picked up by police. He was uninjured, the affidavit says. He told police he was sleeping in his parked car and awoke to two men, later identified as Woodman and Maxwell, standing on each side of the couple’s car.Maxwell reportedly escorted Hayes-Hanley from his car while Woodman pointed a handgun at the couple. Hayes-Hanley was then forced into the bed of the assailants’ pickup and was driven to a barn in the 10300 block of Northeast 119th Street, court documents state.
KALAMA — State and federal officials are responding to an oil spill on the Columbia River between Oregon and Washington.Coast Guard officials said the oily sheen was estimated at about 3 miles long Wednesday afternoon and appeared to be dissipating since it was first reported that morning.Officials said the source of the spill was no longer actively discharging into the river and pollution responders also determined that the oil was too thin to recover.The spill was first reported near Kalama and was moving downriver.Responders with the state Department of Ecology also went out on the water to collect samples to find the spill’s source.Officials said there have been no signs of animals in distress.
By Mamadou DemMr. Abdoulie Tambadou, the Managing Director of the Gambia Ports Authority, yesterday disclosed to the ‘Janneh’ Commission of Enquiry that the total cost contributed by both GPA and SSHFC for the Gallia ferries, amounted to D335,110,690.00.The Ports MD testified that he was not aware whether the office of the former president has correspondence with regard to the procurement of the ferries.According to GPA MD, the expected cost for the construction of slipways for the ferries was $500,000.00 noting that the total cost for Kunta Kinteh was 7,726,200.00 Euros but was quick to add that the office of the former president was not involved in the procurement of the said ferry.Prior to Tambadou’s testimony, former Permanent Secretaries at the Ministries of Trade and Agriculture, were also summoned by the Commission with regard the acquisition of Mahindra tractors, in the form of a loan agreement between the Government of The Gambia and the Mahindra Company in India.Naffie Barry, the permanent secretary at Ministry of Trade, Employment and Regional Integration, told the Commission that in November 2005, a delegation comprised of Balla Gaye, former Finance Minister and the former Chief Executive Officer of then GIPZA, went to India for a conclave and during the visit, a loan agreement was signed for the purchase of tractors.According to Mrs. Barry, she and Kebba S Touray, signed the loan agreement on behalf of the then Minister Balla Gaye, after they were given authority to sign on behalf of the minister.She explained that part of the agreement was the supply of 500 tractors with guaranty as well as an assembly plant; that the total loan was $6.7 million which she said, was signed by the then permanent secretary at the Ministry of Agriculture, Suruwa B Jaiteh.Upon return from India, Mrs Barry said she forwarded the signed agreement to permanent secretaries at the Foreign Affairs and Ministry of Finance, as well as the Secretary General, office of the former president.Madam Barry further explained that it was based on the instruction of the Secretary General that the delegation was formed to visit India, after the Gambian consular had shortlisted two Companies for the procurement of tractors and that they decided to choose Mahindra; that the agreement was signed between the former Government and the Company.She recalled that upon their return from India, a report was made but she could not find the said report but was asked by the Commission Counsel Amie Bensouda, to find out and make it available to the Commission. However when shown a report by the Counsel, Mrs. Barry said it looked familiar but could not confirm as the one before the commission. PS Barry revealed that after recommending the Mahindra tractors, an agreement was signed on 12 April 2006, and the desire was for the tractors to be 500 units with the guaranty which she said, was signed by Suruwa B Jaiteh, the then Ps agric.She finally testified that she was informed that the tractors arrived but could not tell the Commission what happened to the said tractors, noting that she believed the purpose of the tractors was for the mechanisation of farming and creation of employment.Next to give evidence on the Mahindra tractors was Suruwa B Jaiteh, the former PS Agric who retired in 1998 but was on contract from 2005-2006, before he became a consultant.Mr. Jaiteh said during his capacity as Permanent Secretary 2, he was responsible for programs and budget, at the Ministry. He told the Commission that in 2006 they were summoned by the office of the former president to sign for the Mahindra tractors on behalf of Government, by the then Secretary General, Mambury Njie. Asked by Counsel Bensouda whether there was any proposal for the acquisition of the tractors by the Ministry, he responded in the affirmative noting that in India, they conducted an inspection of Companies regarding tractors and Mahindra was chosen to be the supplier of the tractors.Mr. Jaiteh further told the Commission that he signed for the acquisition of 500 tractors with Mahindra adding that by the time the tractors arrived, he was out of the system but arrangement was made with the Ministry of Finance for a consortium of Gambian entrepreneurs who can contract the tractors on loan.However, He said he did not know whether the consortium was formed because he was sent to jail but was informed that the former president took over the responsibility of the tractors and kept them at KGI.Kebba Manneh, Senior Manager, Technical Service at the GPA, also gave evidence on the Joint Venture Agreement for the purchase of Aljamdou and Kansala ferries.Momodou Lamin Gibba also testified on the Gallia ferries in his capacity as the then Managing Director of SSHFC, as well as PS Local Government, who continued his evidence on the land leased to the Gambia Milling Corporation and other matters.
Inter Milan are currently placed fifth in the Serie A and Luciano Spalletti wants to create a pressure on Lazio and AS Roma by winning the upcoming game against Chievo.The experienced coach knows that his side are entering the most important part of the season and they have to win every single game to achieve their season goal – to qualify to the Champions League for the next season.The former AS Roma coach spoke about his side’s goals as he said, according to Gianluca Di Marzio:Report: Inter go top with win over Udinese George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Inter Milan are top of Serie A after beating Udinese to make it three wins out of three.Antonio Conte’s career at Inter Milan, could…”We have important objectives, but time is running out. We can no longer postpone things, we’re working well and on Wednesday we proved we’re in good health. We must give everything until the end of the season.”“We wanted to plate for a spot in the Champions League until the end, and here we are. Chievo knows how to handle difficulties and have experience, they know full well this time of year you must play a certain way to avoid relegation”
Luka Modric, Real Madrid’s midfielder, has voiced his opinion that Liverpool’s spot in the final of the Champions League is well earned and issued a warning for his teammates.The Reds are on their way to win their first Champions League since back in 2005 – it is to be decided on May 26 in Kiev.Report: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…Their opponents, Real Madrid, are most certainly the favourites to win the clash as they won the tournament three times out of the last four. However, former Spur Modric thinks they are a force to be reckoned with and they did not get where they are by chance.“They weren’t one of the favourites, but when you look at the matches they’ve played you see that Liverpool deserve to be in the final,” Modric said, according to the SportsMole. “They’re a good team, they have a great coach and a very difficult match awaits us. But we will be prepared.”
Juan Antonio Pizzi has admitted that he is keen to forget this “feeling of shame” as soon as possible after Saudi Arabia were thrashed 5-0 by the hosts Russia in the opening World Cup gameThe Russians proved to be too much for the Falcons on Thursday at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.Goals from Yury Gazinsky, Denis Cheryshev, Artem Dzyuba and Aleksandr Golovin sealed a convincing 5-0 win for the hosts.“The opposing team really didn’t have to make a huge effort to win this game,” said Pizzi, according to Sky Sports.“We have now to forget this feeling of shame and start thinking about the next match.”The Argentine coach conceded that the defeat will raise uncertainty over his future at Saudi Arabia.Scotland needs a hero: Billy Dodds Manuel R. Medina – September 10, 2019 According to former striker, Billy Dodds his country needs a hero to inspire future generations as the team’s hope to qualify to the EURO 2020 is small.“The way I feel right now makes that a valid point but whatever happens I’ve got my philosophy and I’ll try to do as best I can. I trust in our plans and I trust in my players and I trust we’ll have a better performance in our next game,” he said.Pizzi, who has been in charge for the last seven months after replacing the fired Edgardo Bauza in November, insists that the display did not do Saudi Arabia’s potential justice and has now urged his team to turn their focus to Uruguay in the next game.“This game should not be a point of reference. We didn’t play the way we planned to. It is left to us to be positive and start thinking about the next match,” he said.“I believe that we came into this tournament well prepared and the players were ready to show that they could play at the World Cup. We did not show today what we have done in our previous games.”Saudi Arabia’s match against Uruguay will take place in Rostov on June 20.
Former Juventus and Germany star Jurgen Kohler has questioned Cristiano Ronaldo’s big game recordThe five-time Ballon d’Or winner ended his nine-year stay at Real Madrid for a move to Juventus this summer.However, he has yet to find the back of the net in his three Serie A appearances.And Kohler, who won one Scudetto, one Coppa Italia and the UEFA Cup at Juventus, questioned Ronaldo’s ability to perform in the biggest matches.The 33-year-old didn’t score in last season’s Champions League final and has never managed to find the net in a knockout match at a World Cup following Portugal’s last-16 exit at Russia.“There are no two opinions about Ronaldo’s qualities. He holds many records in Spain,” said Kohler, as stated on AS.“He has managed to win the major trophies. You have to pay tribute to him.“However, I must say that you rarely see Ronaldo in the decisive matches.Vidic: “Ronaldo is the most professional footballer I’ve seen” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Nemanja Vidic opened up on how a 21-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo’s professionalism left him stunned at Manchester United.“Then he goes on to score the goal to make it 4-1, with a penalty, and wants to be celebrated for it. But that’s the way he is, too.”Despite the criticism, Kohler did acknowledge Ronaldo as a “true champion” due to his outstanding work ethic.“I talked about him to a lot of people,” he said.“Everyone is fascinated because he also works a lot on the pitch.“Only the true champions are willing to work more. That applies to Ronaldo.“That’s the difference between world-class players and the regulars.”Kohler spent four years at Juventus and he also played for Cologne, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.The 52-year-old was also a part of the Germany squad that won the 1990 FIFA World Cup and the 1996 UEFA European Championship.
The Liverpool winger won six titles while he was with the German Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich but he got demoted with Stoke, something that marked his careerXherdan Shaqiri has won it all, from a national league to the UEFA Champions League, and the FIFA Club World Cup.But the Liverpool winger still remembers his worst defeat ever: getting demoted with Stoke from the English Premier League to the Championship.“Being relegated with Stoke was a very bad experience for the club and for me and I hope they can come back quickly. But despite what happened there, I am a Champions League winner. I think that deserves respect,” he was quoted by Sky Sports.“People should remember where I played before, the qualities I have, and what I have achieved in the game.”Crouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“I played for one of the biggest teams in the world in Munich and again I am playing for one of the big clubs,” he commented.“So I don’t feel any pressure from the Liverpool shirt.”“When I go back to Munich, the fans show me that I am loved. I want it to be the same here. Why not a second time?” he added.“I think I am settled now and showing my best form.”
The footballer signed for Manchester City in 2017, but is until now when he feels he’s playing his best football for the Citizens.In 2017, footballer Bernardo Silva decided to leave French Ligue 1 club Monaco and go to English Premier League side Manchester City.But is until now when he feels he’s playing his best.“When you change you need to adapt to the club, your new team-mates, the way the manager wants you to play,” he told Sky Sports.“It’s one more season so I am used to playing here, I am confident, I feel a better player because I have learned so much over the last year-and-a-half with my team-mates, the staff, and the manager.”Premier League Betting: Match-day 5 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Going into the Premier League’s match-day five with a gap already beginning to form at the top of the league. We will take a…“I think I am a better player than when I first arrived at Manchester City,” he explained.“You know when you arrive at one of the best clubs in the world it won’t be easy to play. The amazing players that we have in our squad, you cannot play all the games, it’s impossible.”“I wanted to come here but I knew it wouldn’t be easy to start straight away in the team and play all the games,” he added.“Now I am feeling good and helping the team and doing better than last season and I am happy with it. I want to keep going in the same way.”

E! News and others are reporting on the tweets coming since Sunday night’s Miss Universe pageant where Fennell was called as fourth runner up in the contest. The comments focus largely on her unique look and daring to sport a cropped hair-do over the flowing curly hair which is often typical of Miss Universe contestants. The ‘fakiness’ of many of the beauty ambassadors is catching spotlight… from reports on cosmetic surgery, to extreme hair extensions, to super white teeth… the world is buzzing about what is or is not right for a pageant which should reward natural beauty. One comment highlighted by E! News said at the pageant owned by mogul, Donald Trump is not giving Caribbean girls a fair chance. Meanwhile, the TCI braces for another pageant slated for early February. Malique Ferette, the first Miss Teen Turks and Caicos will leave this weekend for Guatemala and the global pageant there.

Hurricane Irma destroys Barbuda Radical rogues ruining Bahamas tourism reputation Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 24 Feb 2015 – A new Caribbean connection coming for the Turks and Caicos Islands as British Airways has announced that it will be changing its route into Provo. BA will no longer fly to the Providenciales International Airport from Nassau in The Bahamas; but now from Antigua. The flight will remain a once weekly commute, arriving in Provo shortly after 5pm and departing for Antigua two hours later; no day has been specified, but BA currently runs on Sundays. And while the flight will be upgraded from a Boeing 767 to a Boeing 777 which has a longer fuselage and broader wing span; the new route will prove somewhat problematic for the Filipinos who frequent the British Airways flight as now they will have to overnight in Antigua; because the continuing flight to London Gatwick is not until next day. The news has already prompted a visit by a Filipino ambassador of the region and the Filipino community says it will now have to be far more proactive when it comes to travel arrangements which will also now be more expensive. As for what prompted the move, London Air Travel says it is unclear, explaining online that: “It may simply be a more effective use of capacity. BA will continue to offer three classes of service (World Traveller Economy, World Traveller Plus Premium Economy and Club World Business Class) on the route. The new route takes effect March 29th.
