LANCASTER – Five young men and three teenagers were arrested over the weekend in connection with a hate crime incident that escalated from the yelling of racial epithets to shots being fired, sheriff’s deputies said. The incident began about 9:20 p.m. Sunday when three white men, 18 to 19, in a Toyota Scion drove by three African-American male teenagers near 25th Street West and Avenue J and yelled a racial epithet. The Scion stopped at a nearby gas station and when the three teens walked by, one of the Scion’s occupants tossed a nickel at them, hitting one of the teenagers in the pants leg, deputies said. The teenagers retaliated by throwing rocks at the Scion and then left the gas station parking lot. The Scion drove by the teenagers again, and its occupants began yelling racial remarks and throwing rocks and bottles at the teenagers, one of whom was hit in the head and required treatment at a local hospital, deputies said.

Persons unknown produced a handgun, firing several rounds at the occupants of the Scion, not striking anyone,” deputies said. The Cadillac was stopped by responding Lancaster station patrol units, and a handgun was found in a hidden compartment in the car, deputies said. Deputies arrested people from both sides of the fracas, though no names were released Monday. “They don’t want to release any names at this time because of the ongoing investigation,” Deputy Rick Nolte said. “Because of the way the investigation is going, they are thinking that some people that were detained may be found not to be involved and maybe other people were involved.” Karen Maeshiro, (661) 267-5744 firstname.lastname@example.org 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Torbey, Dieringer each score two goals for DonsBy Paul LeckerSports ReporterMARSHFIELD — Wisconsin Valley Lutheran gave the Marshfield Columbus soccer team all it could handle for a little more than a half, but the Dons finally got their offense clicking and ran away with a 4-1 victory in a Central Wisconsin Conference match Thursday at Griese Park.The Dons’ powerful offense was held at bay for most of the first half as Wisconsin Valley Lutheran was able to push the ball out of its half of the field time after time.Coleton Schubring scored on a penalty kick in the 37th minute to give the Wolves a 1-0 lead before the Dons finally got things going.Evan Dieringer scored off an assist from Zach Olson with 2:23 to go before halftime to tie the game.After 10 minutes of scoreless soccer, Columbus’ Nadim Torbey countered WVL’s goal with a penalty kick of his own, and less than two minutes later Torbey scored again to put the Dons up 3-1.Dieringer added a goal on a long kick from the top right corner of the penalty box with 1:49 to go to provide the final margin.“We needed some more communication on the defensive end, we needed more supportive runs from the forwards, and we cleaned it up in the second half,” Columbus Catholic coach Jeff Edwards said. “The first half was really bad. No one was talking, and we deserved to be tied because we were not playing well.”With the victory, Columbus (12-3-1, 9-1 CWC) keeps pace with Central Wisconsin Conference leader Amherst/Iola-Scandinavia/Rosholt to remain one-half game out of first place. With four conference games remaining, including a regular-season finale Oct. 13 against the Falcons, Edwards said he is pleased the team is in position to compete for the conference title.“It will be interesting here,” Edwards said. “If we win out, we can win conference again. It would be nice to do. We’re expecting a good game with Pacelli here on Monday. We’re thankful for Northland Lutheran tying Amherst, and they have to still play them again, so who knows what will happen there.”Columbus hosts Stevens Point Pacelli on Monday at Griese Park.(Hub City Times Sports Reporter Paul Lecker is also the publisher of MarshfieldAreaSports.com.)Dons 4, Wolves 1Wisconsin Valley Lutheran 1 0 – 1Columbus Catholic 1 3 – 4First half: 1.

Diving to ailing coral, researchers test a tool for measuring how fast the reef is eroding. By Paul VoosenApr. 24, 2019 , 1:20 PM THE FLORIDA KEYS REEF TRACT—Earlier this month, outfitted in scuba gear and bobbing above lumpy brown coral 6 kilometers off Key Largo, Lauren Toth, a coral geologist at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in St. Petersburg, Florida, set out to learn just how much time Florida’s coral reef has left.Around the world, warming oceans are killing coral. In Florida, Toth and others have found, heat-induced bleaching is just the latest in a millennialong series of insults, which have brought the reef ‘s growth to a standstill and left it vulnerable to erosion and rising seas. As a result, the barrier reef—the third longest in the world—is not simply dying. It appears to be vanishing.At stake is a 320-kilometer-long bulwark that protects the Keys from waves while providing habitat for fish and a lure for tourists. Recent measurements by Toth and her colleagues have confirmed that the coral is eroding, in some places by several millimeters per year. Now, she and others are surveying the entire reef to learn how fast, and where, it is being lost.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)The recent toll of warming, disease, and pollution on Florida’s reef has been even heavier than on some other iconic reefs, such as Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. “We’ve lost 90% of our coral cover in recent decades,” says Erinn Muller, a coral biologist at the Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota, Florida. Some species, such as the fast-growing elkhorn coral with its distinctive wide branches, have nearly vanished. A host of others have died as a disease called stony coral tissue loss has marched down the Keys. “The last corals alive are getting hammered,” says Derek Manzello, an oceanographer at a Miami, Florida, lab of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.Yet Toth and her peers have shown that Florida’s corals haven’t been healthy for millennia. Core samples from the reef record that it stopped growing 3000 years ago. Florida’s reef lies near the northern temperature limit for corals, and Toth and her colleagues reported in a study last year that a cooling trend around that time likely made the waters more prone to cold snaps that would periodically kill off corals, leaving the reefs at a delicate tipping point.Now, although cold snaps still occur, global warming is bringing hotter summers, causing bleaching and mass die-offs. It is also raising sea level. Healthy corals readily cope with sea level rise, growing with the rising ocean. But Florida’s ailing reefs probably can’t keep pace. Anecdotes abound of patches of reef eroded flat to sand.Data, however, are rare, with one exception: In 1998, USGS scientists drilled rods into 12 dead coral colonies at one site here, hoping to gauge erosion. Recently, a USGS team led by Ilsa Kuffner and Toth revisited the rods and used the cement that holds the rods in place as a reference point. In work close to publication, they found that the dead corals are eroding by 5.5 millimeters a year—almost double the rate of global sea level rise—as they are chewed apart by parrotfish and other species.Toth is now trying to get a broader view by taking advantage of rods that Florida state scientists embedded at 46 sites up and down the Keys as reference points for an annual photographic survey. At many of these sites, the epoxy that cements each rod in place, once flush with the coral, is now sticking out because of erosion. To get more precise measurements, Toth and her co-workers developed a portable tool that can sit on top of the stakes.On this April morning, she and a colleague were testing the device, floating above boulder and mountainous star coral and massive starlet coral, with a fleeting sighting of one staghorn. Silvery chubs, red grouper, and snappers seemed to watch the scientists work. Each rod presented its own challenge. Some were covered with small fire corals, which the divers dislodged with taps of a hammer. Others had been coopted by sponges, or in one case had fused with the spine of a fanlike soft coral. When a coral might be damaged or a sponge squished, the scientists skipped measuring it.”The prototype works,” Toth said as she climbed back into the boat. In this case, the rods recorded little erosion—perhaps because the reef was already squat. “Once it’s flat, it probably doesn’t get targeted [by fish] anymore,” she said. This summer, the divers who conduct Florida’s photographic survey will use the USGS tool to measure about half the rods at each site, giving a more complete picture of the reef’s decline.For coral biologist Alina Szmant at the University of North Carolina in Wilmington, Toth’s work confirms the reef is doomed, as the assaults overwhelm a fragile ecosystem. “I don’t want to give up, but you have to be honest with yourself,” she says.A patchwork of restoration efforts, largely from nonprofit groups, continues on the reef, often aiming to replace dead coral with heat-resistant transplants. Backers should temper their expectations, Toth says: “If these reefs haven’t been growing for 3000 years, it’s going to be really tough to get reefs like exist elsewhere in the Caribbean.”Toth still hopes some living coral can be saved. But she says biologists need to introduce not just corals that can resist heat or disease, but also species that can build structure, like staghorn or elkhorn. It’s also time, she adds, to think about saving the reef structure and the services it provides, even if its coral dies. “How do we keep from losing what was built over the last 8000 years?” she says. “Because we don’t have another 8000 years to rebuild it.” DOMINIQUE GALLERY/USGS Scientists track Florida’s vanishing barrier reef

NBA commissioner Adam Silver (Keith Allison/Flickr)NBA Commissioner Adam Silver believes even after Donald Trump’s inauguration on Jan. 20, players who oppose him should still carry on the tradition to visit the White House post-championship.Silver made the statement while speaking to The Guardian in London before the Global Games match between the Denver Nuggets and the Indiana Pacers Thursday, Jan. 12.“If a team came to me in the current situation and asked for my view on whether they should go, I would say go, whether it’s President Obama or now President-elect Trump,” Silver said. “Donald Trump, the private citizen, I don’t know well, but I have known him for many years as a fellow New Yorker. He has been to many Knicks games over the years and I’ve been to several games with his daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner. I have no reason to believe he won’t continue to be supportive of the NBA.”But for many NBA players, it’s not a matter of Trump supporting the league but his divisive political rhetoric. Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard Iman Shumpert told Complex in November 2016 that he would not visit the White House under Trump’s administration.“I can’t get caught up in the racial, sexist bull—- he’s got going on,” Shumpert said. “That’s his personal thing.”And when the Cavs visited the White House that month, forward Richard Jefferson declared on Snapchat that the team would be the last to carry on the tradition begun 54 years go.“I don’t plan on forcing them to do anything that will be viewed as political in nature,” Silver told The Guardian of player’s personal politics. “But I think as we have done historically, we encourage players to have those conversations with each other, with us and become informed on the issues.”Silver echoed such support in July 2016 when the WNBA’s Minnesota Lynx and New York Liberty protested the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile by police and the aftermath. However, he would have preferred that the teams not modify their uniforms in the process.“I actually think it demonstrates that these are multidimensional people,” Silver said. “They live in this society and they have strong views about how things should be. So I’m very encouraging of that.”But when it came to whether or not NBA could hop onboard San Fransico 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s national anthem protest, Silver expressed his preference that all athletes remain standing rather than sitting or kneeling.“It would be my hope that they continue to stand for the national anthem,” he told ESPN in October 2016. “I think that is the appropriate thing to do.”

After months of speculations about the future of Kylian Mbappe and Neymar at Paris Saint-Germain, the reigning Ligue 1 champions have issued a statement regarding the allegations they will have to sell one of their starsThe French newspaper, L’Equite, have been the first one to state the Parisians will have to renounce their headline performers due to the UEFA Financial Fair Play regulations.After making the duo the two most expensive players of all-time, it was though PSG will have to sell one of them to balance the books.Soon, the media all across Europe have been reporting PSG won’t be able to keep holds of their stalwarts unless they break the FFP rules.Furthermore, this Friday, L’Equipe dropped the bombshell by saying the Parisians have already reconciled with losing one of Neymar or Mbappe to prevent UEFA from implementing sanctions.Now, Paris Saint-Germain have released a counterstatement via their official website, accusing L’Equipe of making false allegations.Neymar responds to PSG criticism with a stunning winner Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Despite all the backlash he got today at Parc des Princes, Neymar responded by scoring a stunning winner vs Strasbourg.We all knew that Neymar’s…“In an article published this Friday evening on its website, L’Equipe dares to say ‘PSG is ready to lose Kylian Mbappe and Neymar Jr to avoid [FFP] sanctions.“Beyond denying this misinformation, ridiculous and only aimed to create once again a tough relationship between our club and media, PSG is wondering, once more, about the main goal of L’Equipe and its underlying thought about its editing work concerning PSG.“There are so many examples of this kind of news aiming to bring a bad atmosphere around the club. Last one in date, last Wednesday, matchday against Strasbourg, with a frontage which pretended there was a ‘Cavani issue.’“In passing, regarding the incredible amount of frontpages involving PSG in this daily newspaper, proof of the club’s fame, PSG is asking itself about the schizophrenic behavior of L’Equipe and its hierarchy.”Widely-recognized as the most devastating attacking tandem on the planet, the Frenchman and the Brazilian have notched 78 goals and provided 26 assists altogether since their blockbuster transfers in the summer of 2017.
