Thurston County Family Justice Center Now Open
Facebook0Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Thurston County Family Justice CenterServices for domestic violence, sexual assault now in downtown OlympiaOctober 14, 2013 marked the public opening of the Thurston County Family Justice Center in downtown Olympia. This is a collaborative program of the Family Support Center of South Sound, the Thurston County Clerk’s Office, the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office, and the Thurston County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office. The Thurston County Family Justice Center provides advocacy for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault in criminal cases, assists with civil protection orders and civil family law matters, and provides referrals to social services and other kinds of support.The official opening of the Family Justice Center was highlighted by greetings from First Lady Trudi Inslee and a keynote address by Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson. Mrs. Inslee noted that the Thurston County Family Justice Center, based on a national best-practices model of service delivery, is only the second such center in Washington State; the first being the Crystal Judson Center in Tacoma.The Thurston County Family Justice Center gathers together law enforcement, legal experts, victim advocates and social service providers in one place, making it easier for domestic violence and sexual assault victims to begin to rebuild their lives with protection orders, emergency housing, child care resources, and other legal and social services. Currently, ten service agencies have signed on as partners with the Family Justice Center, including Joint Base Lewis-McChord Victim Advocacy Services, Monarch Children’s Justice and Advocacy Center and Washington State Adult Protective Services. “It’s important to have a collaborative and coordinated approach for domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking cases,” said Jon Tunheim, Thurston County Prosecuting Attorney. “Victims may become intimidated and discouraged if they are forced to go to six or eight different places and talk to a dozen different people to get basic help. Having one office in downtown Olympia makes it easier for victims to access the justice they deserve and rebuild their lives.”For more information about the new Thurston County Family Justice Center and information about services and assistance for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking, visit the Thurston County Family Justice Center web page at www.thurstoncountyfjc.org.
Sunil Gavaskar heaps praise on Shreyas Iyer; expects regular opportunities

Powered by Firework Legendary cricketer Sunil Gavaskar believes Shreyas Iyer is an ideal contender for the number four spot in ODI format than Rishabh Pant and that, he should be given a permanent place in the middle-order. His 71 from 68 played a crucial role in India’s 59 run win in the second ODI at Port-of-Spain on Sunday.Advertisement The former Indian skipper said, “If India get to a great start with Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma batting for 40-45 overs, then Pant at No. 4. But if it’s a question of batting for 30-35 overs, then I think it should be Shreyas Iyer at No. 4 and Pant at No. 5. Today he came at No. 5. He had plenty of overs. He had the company of his skipper, Virat Kohli. Nothing quite like it because the skipper takes the pressure off you.”Advertisement Iyer added a vital 125 runs partnership with skipper Virat Kohli (120). His innings helped India reach a respectable score of 279 for 7 in a match hampered by rain. The young batsman was in the playing XI at Guyana, but the match was washed out after 13 overs.“In the five matches, he played before this, he scored 2 fifties made a highest score of 88. He hadn’t done anything wrong to be left out of the World Cup. But that’s past. Now he has come back and made 71 in his first opportunity. If this doesn’t help him get a more permanent slot in the Indian middle-order, I don’t know what will,” Gavaskar added.Advertisement Advertisement

Extra games pay big dividends as LVR prepares for AA Field Hockey provincials
It’s always good to look on the brighter side of life.So when the L.V. Rogers Bombers suffered a crushing 1-0 loss to J. Lloyd Crowe Hawks in the final of the West Kootenay High School Girl’s Field Hockey Tournament, skipper Val Gibson took the positive approach.And the strategy paid off in spades as the Bombers not only qualified for the B.C. High School AA Girl’s Field Hockey Championships with Wild Card wins over Princess Margaret of Penticton and Surrey’s Southridge, but the players gains some valuable experience playing on a surface that will be identical to the provincial showdown.“The Wild Card games were a terrific chance for the Bombers to practice on the turf field and for the girls to gain some confidence,” Gibson said on the eve of the three-day AA tournament beginning Wednesday in West Vancouver.“It also allowed the girls to try moves that just do not work on grass.”LVR opened last week’s Wild Card tourney in Kelowna with a 2-0 win over Okanagan No. 2 Princess Margaret. Hailee Gerun and Jena Wheeldon provided the offence.The Bombers then dumped Fraser Valley No. 3 from Southridge by the same 2-0 score as Allie Zondervan and Chiara Chirico scored.Tara Yowek, a key to LVR’s success, backstopped the wins in goal.“Tara is very smart and very aggressive (and) manages the defence very well,” Gibson said of her star keeper.“She is fearless in goal but will need to control her emotions.”The wins power the Bombers to the tournament ranked ninth overall.LVR has been slotted into the four-team pool with Collingwood from the North Shore, Vancouver Island rep Shawnigan Lake Island and Little Flower Academy of Vancouver.Other players that must play well for LVR include midfielders Naomi Perkins, Hailee Gerun, Abbie Bourchier-Willans and Allie Zondervan along with snipers Emma Borhi, Jena Wheeldon, Lauren Walgren and Chiara Chirico.This is the second straight year LVR has qualified for the tournament after being shutout of the event since 2001.In 2012, the Bombers finished 10th after losing to Rossland in the final game of the tourney 2-1.
Salmo sports icon Art Field dies
The man never turned down a chance to coach a team or help out his community.Art Field passed away peacefully, with friends and family at his side, at the Trail Regional Hospital, July 14.Art Field lost out to a long struggle with diabetes and heart failure.“(Art) was one helleva guy dedicated to family, friends, community (and) education,” said close friend Lou DeRosa of Trail..“Art was one of those guys who was always there,” said Jack Closkey of Castlegar, who coached against the Salmo Falcons skipper.And many of the same accolades poured in on Facebook from friends and colleagues of the Salmo sports icon.Raised in East Vancouver, Art Field completed his BPE and MPE at the University of British Columbia.Being very active in sports — especially soccer and baseball — Art Field was very proud of the big block letters that he received in the two sports from the UBC Athletic Department.As a graduate with a teaching degree in physical education, Art Field taught in Kamloops, Vancouver, and for two years at Macdonald College of McGill University, before he and his loving wife Joan relocated to begin a lifetime of coaching, helping in the community and raising three children in Salmo.“I first met (Art) at Powell Street grounds during early 60s while attending summer school at UBC,” DeRosa explained.“ I was in the stands with my ball glove. He spots me and asks “You a ballplayer?” He invited me to join the team. I played with him there during two summers.”DeRosa said the two continued their friendship and was hired at Salmo Junior/Senior Secondary where Art was the vice principal.“I taught there for two years and enjoyed my time there,” DeRosa said.“I played senior men’s basketball for Salmo.”Guess who was the coach?Art Field.“He headed the senior basketball team there for perhaps ten years,” DeRosa added.Art Field was honoured with many coach-of-the-year awards during that time. Back in Salmo, Art Field was active in the Salmo Lions, swimming pool, ski hill, golf course, recreation commission and Salmo Valley Youth and Community Centre.He gave a great deal of his time to the coaching and sponsoring of school and community teams.That’s where legendary high school girl’s basketball coach Jack Closkey met Art Field.“You name the school sport . . . Art would always show up with a few Salmo kids and they would compete like tigers,” Clockey remembers.“Art was like those kids; a little rough around the edges but a big heart and a tough competitor.“(He was) a great guy and a true and unique individual.”When most people retire, they relax.Art Field just shifted into another gear as a Trustee on the Kootenay Lake School Board.“Art was a great character on the board,” said fellow Trustee Bob Wright.“His passion for rural education and physical fitness was something else. He fought very hard for full sized gymnasium’s in the district.”That fight put Art Field’s name on the new gymnasium.Art Field served as vice President, Agreements Chair, Teacher Advocate and Variance Chair for the N.D.T.A. and Vice President and President of the West Kootenay Administrator’s Association as well as well as earning the Celebration 1988 medals (Torch Run) and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Award.However, what Art Field loved the most was teaching.And his students respected his abilities; not only as an instructor, but a person they could turn to growing up.“Art was very talented athletically and a man with a big personality,” said Salmo grad Enzo DeLaurentiis.“For me he was a mentor and a role model.”“I remember he was our soccer coach. I looked forward to our scrimmage games at the end of our practices . . . we all thought we were soccer gods in our senior years … but it was only a matter of time before coach Field would dribble circles around us with moves that none of us had ever seen. . ..”“He was an amazing man who influenced many students,” DeLaurentiis added.So it goes without saying that Art Field wanted to do something, even after death.His last wish was that his body be donated to UBC.However, sadly the school was unable to accept this donation.Cremation has taken place and a celebration of life will be held in the fall for a Salmo Icon who will be deeply missed by wife Joan, son Morgan of Seattle, daughters Krista (Al the Keeper) of Port Coquitlam, and Megan of Kimberley, four grandchildren, Evan, Cole, Angela, Jacob, dog Clyde and many, many friends he touched during his travels.
STABLE NOTES BY ED GOLDEN (FRIDAY, JANUARY 27, 2017)
MIYADI HAS TWO FOR THE MONEY ON SATURDAYTrainer Steve Miyadi has two horses entered on Saturday’s Sunshine MillionsDay card at Santa Anita featuring five stakes offering $1 million for California-bred or sired horses. They are three-year-olds Mr. Hinx in the $250,000 California Cup Derby at a mile and one-sixteenth, and Ms Wayaka in the $200,000 California Cup Oaks at a mile on turf.Both are longshots, but Miyadi recognizes that “you can’t win if you’re not in.”Mr. Hinx, owned by longtime Miyadi client Gary Barber, is coming off a handy six furlong maiden win, while Ms Wakaya, also owned by a longtime client, owner/breeder Tommy Town Thoroughbreds, had issues breaking from the rail when she was a well-beaten fourth in the one mile Soviet Problem at Los Alamitos Dec. 17.“Mr. Hinx has speed and is stretching out,” Miyadi said, “and there’s other speed in the race, but the horse is doing well.“Ms Wakaya was sort of looking around after breaking from the one hole in the Soviet Problem, and while she wasn’t going to beat the winner (Sircat Sally, who scored by 12 lengths), she did improve her position and might have been closer.’The Oaks, race five: Cash Prize, Chantal Sutherland, 20-1; Cioppino Pasadino, Joe Talamo, 30-1; How About Zero, Mario Gutierrez, 15-1; Bella Luma, Rafael Bejarano, 10-1; Adios Call, Norberto Arroyo Jr., 12-1; Ms Wayaka, Kent Desormeaux, 20-1; Miss Sunset, Martin Garcia, 12-1; My Pi Romancer, Flavien Prat, 3-1; Sircat Sally, no rider, 9-5; and Princess Roi, Corey Nakatani, 5-2.The field for the Derby, race nine: Tribal Storm, Rafael Bejarano, 8-1; Ann Arbor Eddie, Mario Gutierrez, 5-2; Mr. Hinx, Norberto Arroyo Jr., 10-1; Hot Smoke, Joe Talamo, 8-1; California Diamond, Kent Desormeaux, 5-2; Six Point Rack, Stewart Elliott, 12-1; and Colis Gold, Martin Garcia, 2-1. VAN DYKE SUFFERS BROKEN ARM IN RIDING SPILLDrayden Van Dyke was at Huntington Memorial Hospital Friday morning after suffering a compound fracture to his right arm following a two-horse spill in Thursday’s fourth race, according to his agent, Brad Pegram.The 22-year-old jockey underwent surgery shortly after arriving at the hospital in nearby Pasadena, and was thankfully cleared of any injuries to his head, neck and spine.Van Dyke, champion apprentice jockey of 2014, had five wins, nine seconds and two thirds from 51 mounts at Santa Anita through Thursday. He was aboard the pace-setting Tawny when the filly went wrong turning into the homestretch.Rally Back, trailing Tawny, could not avoid the fallen horse, unseating jockey Chantal Sutherland, who escaped injury and was working horses Friday morning.Rally Back had only superficial injuries. Bob Baffert2653419%46%$398,246 SPECIAL FIRST POST TIME SATURDAY IS 11:45 A.M.In an effort to better accommodate both the inaugural running of the $12 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational from Gulfstream and a 10-race Sunshine Millions/California Cup card locally, Santa Anita has moved first post time Saturday to 11:45 a.m. HORSEMEN VARY ON PEGASUS PICKSLess than a month into 2017, the Race of the Year is here. It unfolds Saturday atGulfstream Park where Horse of the World Arrogate meets Horse of the Year California Chrome in the inaugural $12 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational at 1 1/8 miles.Opinions on which of the two Southern California-based champions–Arrogate, 2016 Male Three-Year-Old Eclipse Award winner–and California Chrome, 2016 Horse of the Year and Older Dirt Male, varied in a random sampling of Santa Anita-based trainers, as noted:Richard Baltas: Chrome. He’s been training at Gulfstream; Arrogate has not.Alexis Barba: I’ve got to go with Chrome. I loved Arrogate as a three-year-old, but I’ve got to go with ‘the man.’Rafael Beccera: California Chrome 100 percent.David Bernstein: Arrogate might be the best horse but Chrome might have a tactical advantage because he’s been training there and it’s a mile and an eighth.Simon Callaghan: It’s a coin flip, I think.Jack Carava: I like Arrogate based on the post positions, but on training, both are prepared to give it their best shots.James Cassidy: Arrogate. The 12 hole is a big problem (for Chrome). It’s a short run to the first turn, and it’s not like there’s a bum in the one hole.Ben Cecil: I’d like to see Chrome win but I’m probably leaning towards Arrogate.Vladimir Cerin: I just hope it’s a good race.Phil D’Amato: I give Chrome the edge. At Los Al (Winter Challenge) he was eight wide (actually six), so I don’t think the post matters.Neil Drysdale: I like ’em both. I’ll take either one of them.Ron Ellis: Chrome, because Arrogate hasn’t been able to maintain a normal training schedule.Peter Eurton: Chrome with the outside draw.Neil French: I’m leaning slightly towards Arrogate.Paddy Gallagher: I just want to see a great race.Mark Glatt: Arrogate.Jorge Gutierrez: I think Arrogate is the best horse in the country but California Chrome is the best horse of a lifetime.Bruce Headley: Chrome. Years ago Art Sherman galloped the best horse (Swaps) and now he trains the best horse.Dan Hendricks: Chrome, just off the pace with a stalking trip and then blow by them.Eric Kruljac: If I had to bet my life it would be Arrogate, but I’m 100 percent behind Chrome emotionally.Ian Kruljac: At a mile and an eighth, Chrome.Jerry Hollendorfer: Both are California guys; I’d like to see one of those win it, so whichever one wins is fine with me. I think they have to beat Chrome, even though Arrogate beat him before (by a half length in the Breeders’ Cup Classic). I think people are trying to say Arrogate’s not ready, but Bob (Baffert) wouldn’t take him back there if he wasn’t.Marty Jones: Chrome. Going with the Cal-bred.Steve Knapp: Arrogate. He’s got a better post.Brian Koriner: Chrome is too tough.Craig Lewis: It’s a coin flip.Mike Machowsky: I’d like to have either one.Ron McAnally: Arrogate. If I said Chrome, Baffert would choke me.Mike McCarthy: It looks like a great race. I just don’t know who, though.Sean McCarthy: Arrogate, but I’d like Chrome to win it.Gary Mandella: The post positions aren’t good for either horse, but I’d say Chrome.Richard Mandella: They’re both very good. I couldn’t pick between ’em.Alfredo Marquez: I love Chrome. He’s been at Gulfstream and had works on the track. Steve Miyadi: I just hope it’s a great race.Hector Palma: California Chrome. The distance is shorter and it’s better for him.George Papaprodromou: Arrogate. I think he’s the better horse.Jorge Periban: Chrome.Dean Pederson: I give Chrome a slight edge. He didn’t have to train through adverse conditions. Face it: this is Chrome’s all-in race. Arrogate has the whole year ahead of him, but never underestimate Baffert.Marcelo Polanco: Chrome is the better horse. He’s been there and he’s acclimated.John Sadler: It’s pretty close. Maybe Chrome goes out on top.Gary Sherlock: I think the distance favors Chrome. I don’t think he’d beat Arrogate going a mile and a quarter.John Shirreffs: I’m a Chrome fan.Cliff Sise Jr.: It’s 50-50. It should be a good race right down to the wire.Gary Stute: A mile and an eighth suits Chrome better. Arrogate’s better at a mile and a quarter.Eddie Truman: Chrome at a mile and an eighth. If it was a mile and a quarter, I’d go with Arrogate. Chrome will be rolling this time, not sitting there waiting, but Arrogate’s just been spectacular, the way he’s looking.Kathy Walsh: I’m pulling for Chrome. It should be a fabulous race. Arthur did a helluva job giving the horse to the world.Howard Zucker: I love Chrome. I think the distance favors him.The field for the Pegasus, the 12th and last race, with a scheduled post time of 2:44 p.m. Pacific Time: Arrogate, Mike Smith, 7-5; Prayer for Relief, Florent Geroux, 50-1; Neolithic, John Velazquez, 30-1; Noble Bird, Julien Leparoux, 25-1; War Story, Antonio Gallardo, 50-1; War Envoy, Luis Saez, 50-1; Shaman Ghost, Jose Ortiz, 20-1; Semper Fortis, Tyler Gaffalione, 50-1; Keen Ice, Javier Castellano, 12-1; Breaking Lucky, Luis Contreras, 25-1; Eragon, Edgar Prado, 50-1; and California Chrome, Victor Espinoza, 6-5.Whether Chrome or Arrogate is the post time favorite remains to be seen, although an argument could be made that whichever horse is the chalk, the price could be closer to 4-5.NBC will air the Pegasus live from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. PST.

No. 5 McNeese Advances With 7-2 Win Over No. 8 Texas A&M-Corpus Christi
McNeese got on the board first in the top of the second by virtue of a Dustin Duhon single that dropped in front of A&M-Corpus Christi center fielder Nick Anderson, knocking in Carson Maxwell. The ensuing at-bat resulted in a Reid Bourque groundout that allowed Julian Gonzales to score and double the Cowboy lead. The Cowboys added one more for good measure in the seventh as Dickerson nearly singled through the left side, but it was deep enough to drive in Nate Fisbeck and put McNeese on top 6-0.BSB: Stretch time in Sugar Land, and @McNeeseBaseball has stretched its lead to 6-0.

The decision puts the Cowboys one win away from competing for a Southland Conference Tournament title for the first time since 2003. In the final frame, the Cowboys put ducks on the pond with a pair of hit batters and a Fisbeck double, setting up Dickerson’s RBI infield single to push the lead back to five. Cowboys starter Rhett Deaton (8-4) earned the win after only giving up one earned run over 7.1 innings with four strikeouts. He carried a no-hitter into the fifth, when Nick Anderson reached on a leadoff bunt single, but Deaton responded by retiring the next nine batters in order.BSB: Cowboys’ starter Deaton through 6 innings: 1 hit, 0 ER, 3 K, 1 BB, 71 pitches.

In the top of the fourth, McNeese put up a trio of runs on a balk with runners on the corners that brought Jake Dickerson home, followed by a Duhon double that plated Maxwell for the second time of the game. Two batters later, another two-bagger off the bat of Payton Harden scored Duhon for a 5-0 lead. The noon CT game tomorrow will pit A&M-Corpus Christi against first-round opponent Incarnate Word with the winner to face McNeese at 7 p.m. and the loser forced to go home.

If Pochettino, 47, were to resign or be sacked following the team’s poor start to the season, Tottenham’s options for an immediate replacement would be limited.Pochettino himself is a long-term target of Real president Florentino Perez.And it could be a neat solution for all concerned if he went back to Spain to take charge at the Bernabeu, with Mourinho replacing him at Spurs.3 Poch is under pressure after a nightmare start that has them down in 14th place.Credit: PA:Press Association HARRY REDKNAPP insists Spurs would be crazy to sack Mauricio Pochettino.Boss Poch is under pressure after a nightmare start that has them down in 14th place.3 Harry Redknapp insists Spurs would be crazy to sack Mauricio PochettinoCredit: ReutersHe faces a crunch derby clash at West Ham on Saturday but Redknapp — who managed both clubs — has warned Tottenham not to boot him out.Harry, 72, said: “He’s a fantastic manager. You are only as good as your players and they need to pick up their form.“It would not even come into the equation for me to get rid of him.”Spurs are without a Premier League win since September and defeat at the Hammers will ramp up the pressure on Poch, just 5½ months after he led the club to the Champions League final.And SunSport revealed Jose Mourinho is keeping a close eye on the Spurs situation — despite believing the Real Madrid job will be his if he wants it.Mourinho has been linked with a Bernabeu return for several months because of Zinedine Zidane’s struggles in his own second spell at the club.The former Chelsea boss, 56, told friends he is confident of being offered the post if and when Zidane goes.But the TV pundit also confided he would not necessarily accept, partly because of the possibility of taking over at Spurs.3Most Read in FootballTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticREF RELEASEDChampions League ref Vincic released by cops after arrest in prostitution raidKEANE DEALEx Man United youth ace David Jones says Roy Keane negotiated a contract for him
