Court backs Smith burial in Bahamas

first_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Smith’s body has been stored at a medical examiner’s office since shortly after she died Feb. 8 at age 39. A cause of death has not been determined. Lawyer Richard Milstein, the baby’s advocate, said in a statement Wednesday after the ruling that the funeral was set for Friday. He declined to comment further, saying he wanted to “uphold the decorum and dignity that should be maintained throughout this process, for the sake of Dannielynn and the memories she will have of her mother’s funeral.” WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – A Florida appeals court helped clear the way Wednesday for Anna Nicole Smith to be buried in the Bahamas, saying evidence supports that it’s what the former Playboy Playmate wanted. Her estranged mother, Virgie Arthur, challenged last week’s ruling by Judge Larry Seidlin, who gave control of the body to an advocate for Smith’s 5-month-old daughter, Dannielynn. Arthur wanted to bury Smith in her native Texas. But Smith’s boyfriend, Howard K. Stern, had argued that she had wanted to be buried in the Bahamas next to her 20-year-old son, who died last year of apparent drug-related causes. The 4th District Court of Appeal agreed. The trial court concluded that Smith’s “last ascertainable wish” was to be buried alongside her son. “This finding is not essentially disputed,” the appellate judges said in their ruling. Arthur’s attorney, Roberta Mandel, said Wednesday morning that if the appeals court did not find in her client’s favor, she was prepared to appeal to the state Supreme Court, though an appeal was not immediately filed. Mandel did not immediately return telephone messages left with her office after the appeals court ruling. last_img read more

Chance of playing Everton motivating Sharks

first_img0Shares0000William Muluya passes instructions on to his players during a training session at the Uhuru Stadium in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania on January 24, 2019. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluDAR ES SALAAM, Tanzania, Jan 25 – The prospect of playing English Premier League side Everton FC in July is motivation enough for Kariobangi Sharks to win the SportPesa Cup here in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, head coach William Muluya says.Sharks showed their title credentials when they shocked Tanzanian giants Dar Young Africans (Yanga) 3-2 in the first round match on Tuesday and are now labeled as the tournament’s dark horses as they prepare to face Tanzanian side Mbao in Friday’s semi-final. But it is the prospect of facing an EPL side that motivates the young team which was only promoted to top tier football in Kenya in 2017.“It is a motivation to play Everton because everyone wants to test himself against the biggest teams at the biggest stage. Everyone is looking for it and the fact that we have an opportunity is driving force enough for us,” Muluya told Capital Sport during his team’s training session on Thursday.Kariobangi Sharks players enjoy a warm-up drill during a training session at the Uhuru Stadium in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania on January 24, 2019. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluWith a crop of players ranging from as young as 18 years, Sharks will be motivated to earn that chance to face Everton as it will give them an opportunity to be scouted as the friendly match to be played in July will be screened all over the world and watched by a myriad of scouts.But even before they can think of facing Everton, Sharks have a semi-final against Mbao to think about, the very same side that dumped out the defending champions Gor Mahia.Muluya is cautious of his approach against the side having watched them beat Gor on penalties and believes the Tanzanians are even way better than them.“It is a very good side. In this tournament there is no weak or strong opponent. We saw them against Gor and looking at its history, they are a side that loves beating the so called big teams. In the league they picked points from Simba and Yanga and as a matter of fact it’s a side much stronger than us,” Muluya chided.The tactician has at the same time stated that his side is not under pressure despite being labeled us one of the team’s to watch in the tournament and says all four side in the semi-finals have a chance of lifting the title.Kariobangi Sharks head coach William Muluya enjoyed a kick about with his players during a training session at the Uhuru Stadium in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania on January 24, 2019. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluSharks were a relaxed lot during their pre-semi finals training session at the Uhuru Stadium with laughter and banter being served in equal proportion.Muluya looked calm throughout and even played in a small five-aside game as he looked to build the strong bond he has with his players.His sentiments are echoed by skipper Eric Juma who notes that the boys are calm and relaxed and will only be going in to play their own brand of football and enjoy the opportunity that comes with it.“This is a tournament and of course we want to win it, but we are under no pressure. The fact that people are labeling us as favorites is good because it shows they appreciate that we are a good team. That is a motivation enough for us,” the defender who came on as a sub against Yanga said.The ‘winning team’ during Kariobangi Sharks training session receives a ‘gift’ from assistant coach Charles ‘Korea’ Omondi at the Uhuru Stadium in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania on January 24, 2019. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluSharks has been on steady progress since 2016 when they had their first hugely successful year, reaching the semi finals of the Football Kenya Federation Shield and earning promotion to the top tier.In 2017, they reached the finals of the shield and finished within the top eight while last year, they finally won their first major silverware and represented Kenya in the CAF Confederations Cup.Muluya says the confidence they have picked up from the Confederations Cup has made them a more solid side and expects bigger improvement and more achievements from the team this season.“Playing Continental football was a big positive for us because it gave us so much psychological boost. We played under different atmosphere away from home and the players’ mental strength was built up and now, we believe there’s nothing we can’t face; small or big,” the coach also pointed out.Last year, the Kenyan side exited the tournament in the first round after losing to Simba on post-match penalties.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

DONEGAL LEAGUE – ALL THE REPORTS, RESULTS AND FIXTURES

first_imgDONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUEREPORTS Action from the Watson Hire Division One match between Castlefin Celtic and Cappry Rovers in the Donegal Junior League. Pic.: Gary Foy, Leaue PROSUNDAY 30-03-2014Brian Mc Cormick Sports Premier Division Kilmacrennan Celtic 0 Lifford Celtic 1This game was reversed to Greenbrae Park Lifford as both teams went in search of three points at opposite ends of the table. The first half was a fairly even affair with few chances. Marcus McDonald came closest to scoring for Lifford following an Alan Gethins corner. Kilmacrennan started the second half brightest without causing Lee White any major trouble in the Lifford goal. The game finally sparked into life as Ross Porter rattled the Kilmacrennan crossbar on the hour mark. The only goal of the game arrived after a Kevin Mc Brearty run and shot brought a fine save from the Kilmacrennan netminder only for Mark Neeson to finish the rebound to an empty net with 20 minutes left on the clock. For the remainder of the game Kilmacrennan pushed for an equaliser with Lifford countering, Alan Gethins had the final effort of the match with a fine volley from 20 yards only for the keeper to make a fine save. Battling performances from both teamsDonegal Town 3 Cranford United 2A late penalty from Conor Mc Monagle resulted in Donegal Town coming out on top in a crucial relegation battle at the foot of the table. Donegal started much the brighter and dominated the first half for long periods. Benny Byrne was a constant thorn in the side of the Cranford defenders and caused lots of problems early on. The opening goal came when Raymond Mc Groary’s free kick eluded everyone and slipped in at the back post midway through the first half. Donegal increased their lead on the hour mark when Benny Byrne brushed aside the Cranford centre half to power the ball home at the near post. Cranford battled hard and got back into it when Philip Buchannan flicked the ball home from a set piece. Buchannan then brought Cranford level with five minutes to go, finishing from twelve yards having earned the penalty himself. Donegal threw everything forward in search of a winner in the late stages and when Benny Byrne was pulled down inside the area Mc Monagle was on hand to clinch a vital three points for the Town. Good team performances from both sides. Referee: Liam FarrenSt. Catherines 2 Gweedore Celtic 2St Catherines played their final home game of the league campaign against Gweedore Celtic on a fine Spring day. The home side started the brighter and on thirty minutes Jason Noctor scored a header at the back post following a deep cross from the left. Both teams battled hard in the midfield area with some hearty tackles and tussles throughout the game.The second half saw The Saints start the well again and Barry Cannon made it two-nil when his shot from twenty yards found the top corner. Gweedore didn’t lie down and kept the pressure on the home side and on seventy five minutes Damien O’ Sullivan’s header found the net from a cross. The Saints had a claim for a goal waved away on eighty minutes, this spurred on Gweedore and they got the equaliser on eighty five minutes after a lapse of concentration, Damien O’ Sullivan on the mark again. Team performance both sides. Referee: Joe Mc HughRathmullan Celtic 4 Milford United 2 Rathmullan emerged with a deserved three points from the big local derby with Milford at the Flagpole. The Hoops hit the front thanks to an early goal from Kieran Gorman but this was soon cancelled out when referee Mick Lagan awarded the visitors a penalty.With a strong home crowd behind them the Hoops rallied in the second period and goals from Eamonn Sheridan, the immense Paddy Sheridan and talisman Dara Patton were enough to secure the win despite sub Peter Doherty’s goal for the Swans. The victory keeps Rathmullan at the top of the Premier Division with just two games left to play with Lifford still hot on their heels following their 1-0 win over Kilmacrennan.Watson Hire Division OneGweedore United 3 Kerrykeel ’71 F.C. 0 This game played in glorious conditions in Carrickboyle saw the home side claim the three points thanks to an excellent team performance and a hat-trick from Ciaran Mc Fadden. The game began with both sides going at each other however the home side broke the deadlock in the 5th minute when Ciaran Mc Fadden, who got the ball on the halfway, rounded two defenders and finished well past Mark Mc Conigley. Both sides gave very little away until the 28th minute when Kerrykeel were awarded a penalty. The resulting spot kick taken by Niall Doherty was excellently saved by Liam Mc Fadden who was excellent on the day. The game remained 1-0 until half time. In the second half the visitors started the brightest and went in search of their equaliser with good chances falling to Mark Friel and Colin Mc Conigley however Mc Fadden in the United nets saved well on each occasion. The home side had their own chances through Michael Connolly and Darren Ferry. The home side extended their lead in the 62nd minute when Darren Ferry’s excellent pass found Ciaran Mc Fadden who slotted past the oncoming Mc Conigley to make it 2-0. Kerrykeel were unlucky on a number of occasions when Mark “Sparky” Friel and Paddy Mc Granaghan could have pulled one back but it just wasn’t their day. United ensured the points in the 77th minute when Francis Gallagher did well on the right wing and his excellent cross was well finished by Ciaran Mc Fadden to get his hatrick and United’s third on the day. Good team performances by both sides on the day with the home side edging the match helped by their in-form striker Ciaran Mc Fadden. Referee: Paddy MelaughCastlefin Celtic 3 Cappry Rovers 3With both teams looking for all three points this was always going to be an entertaining game. After five minutes JP Malley chipped the visiting keeper after been set up by Damien Mc Anenny. Castlefin doubled the lead through Matthew O’ Rourke with an excellent strike from outside the box straight into the roof of the net. Castlefin created numerous other chances but were unable to extend their advantage. Cappry started to get into the game before half time as Aaron Kelly caused some trouble of the Castlefin defence with his dangerous crosses into the box. Cappry pulled one back straight after the restart as Darren O’Leary made no mistake from the penalty spot after a hand ball in the home box. Cappry did most of the pressing in the second half they found an equaliser on 60th minute when Kevin Mc Glynn found himself free at the back post to tap the ball into the net. Castlefin regained the lead on 65 minutes when PJ McMenamin found Matthew O’Rourke and O’Rourke then found Malley in the box and he made no mistake from close range. With five minutes remaining Cappry found another equaliser as a corner caused a scramble in a packed Castlefin box and Stephen McDermott made it three each. Both teams could have took all three points in the closing stages but had to settle with a share of the points. Referee: Marty Quinn. Best for Castlefin: Kieran Brennan. Best for Cappry: Kevin Mc Glynn.CT Ball Division TwoRaphoe Town 3 Ballybofey United 0Raphoe welcomed Ballybofey to the Deele College grounds on what was a fine day for football. This was a game the town had to win to keep their play-off hopes alive. Raphoe started well and played some fine passing football but were just lacking in the final third. The two Bogles were getting forward at every opportunity and kept the Ballybofey defenders on their toes. The breakthrough came just before half time when some great play from Jamie Gallagher on the wing took him around the defender and he found Stephen Craig who finished well. Raphoe kept the pressure on in the second half and had some great chances to get a second through Gallagher, Craig and Mc Brearty but credit to a very young Ballybofey team who kept going and had a few half chances through Kelly and Gregg. Raphoe got their second from the penalty spot when Paddy Gallagher scored. Paddy got the third when he scored from 30 yards. Good result for Raphoe with a fine team performance. Good team effort from a young Ballybofey outfit. Referee: Kevin LogueConvoy Arsenal 1 Drumbar F.C. 0It was a sunny spring Sunday afternoon and Convoy started off the brightest at Orchard Park. They maintained possession well but the final ball proved difficult on many occasions. On 25 minutes Ryan Carlin managed to get a shot off but found Drumbar’s keeper in fine form.Drumbar settled after this and the game was an even cagey affair for the remainder of the half. Convoy started the second half with an offensive attitude and Carlin was denied once again when the keeper came out on top of their one on one battle. Their persistence however was rewarded on 70 minutes when James Kee knocked down to Jason Toner who in turn teed it up for a terrific strike from John A. Kee which rifled into the roof of the net from 18yards. Following this Convoy pushed on in search of a second but Drumbar held firm. Overall an important three points for Convoy. Best for Drumbar: Darragh Doogan. Best for Convoy: Team Effort. Referee: Paddy MartinSATURDAYOld Orchard Saturday Division OneGlenea United Reserves 4 St. Catherines Reserves 0Glenea Reserves continued their unbeaten run with this well earned victory over St. Catherines. The home side started well and took the lead on 5 minutes when Dean Gallagher headed home a corner. Glenea quickly extended their lead when Padraig McGee converted from the penalty spot after a handball. The home side continued to dominate the game and their pressure finally paid off after 35 minutes when Eamonn McHugh got onto a through ball, beat last defender and fired home for the 3rd goal. In the 2nd half St. Catherines tried hard to get back into the game and came close to pulling a goal back only to be let down by some wayward finishing. As the half progressed the home side started to get on top again and on 65 minutes got their 4th goal when Eamonn McHugh was on hand to slot the ball home after it broke to him in the box. Glenea had a couple of chances to increase their lead but were denied by some good goalkeeping from the visiting keeper. Best for Glenea were Michael Mc Clafferty and Eamonn McHugh, while it was a team effort from St. Catherines. Referee: Martin Coll.Orchard F.C. 4 Castlefin Celtic Reserves 1Orchard started this game well and took the lead after 15 minutes when Chucky Sweeney stole the ball from the defender and raced in on goal and finished well from six yards. Orchard doubled their lead two minutes later. A great through ball from “Red” found Niall Bonner who finished the move off well. Castlefin pushed hard and had a few chances before half time but a well marshalled defence kept them out. Orchard started the second half in the same fashion as the first. Chucky Sweeney should have made it three only the keeper saved well. The game’s third goal came on 65 minutes when Niall Bonner hit a good volley from 12 yards and the keeper got a hand on it but couldn’t keep it out. Castlefin pulled a goal back shortly after this when there was a mix up in the Orchard defence and the Castlefin striker got in and finished from three yards. Orchard got their fourth on 85 minutes. A good ball from “Eddy” found Luke Friel who raced through and finished well from 5 yards. Best for Orchard were Andrew Doherty and Niall Bonner. God team effort by Castlefin.Mulroy Celtic 1 Glencar Celtic 2Two teams at different ends of the table played out a very entertaining encounter. Glencar fresh of an eight one victory last week picked up where they left off and pinned the home side back from the first whistle. They took the lead when the clinical Pajo Rafferty broke clear after a mistake in the home defence and cooly slotted home. They had a chance to double their lead ten minutes later when they won a penalty, Rafferty stepped up and brought an excellent save from Jerome Doherty in the Mulroy goal. Mulroy threatened on occasions and were unlucky not to equalise when a free kick found a spare man but the header drifted wide. With half time approaching Glencar made it two nil when a shot from the edge of the box sneaked into the bottom corner, Shane Hilly with the goal. Mulroy took to the field for the second half with a brisk breeze at their back and put Glencar under pressure. They pulled a goal back from a free kick twenty five yards out, Eamon Sweeney with a superb curling effort into the top corner. The home side with their tails up had chances to draw level, the best dropping to Paul Martin one on one but his shot flashed wide. At times the away side showed why they’re are closing in on the title with passing that was a joy to watch creating chances in the process. Good team performance from home side, Sully and Ray Quinn impressed for Glencar.Fintown Harps AFC 1 Erne Wanderers 5Amid cold conditions it was Erne Wanderers who opened the scoring when David Dolan scored in the first minute. In the 15th minute Erne’s Michael Ward furthered their lead when he made no mistake in front of the goal. Michael Ward then scored from a rebound of a free kick with 5 minutes left in the first half. Fintown tried hard to get a score on the board but all to no avail.The second half started better for the Harps when Shan Mc Millian took on the Ballyshannon defence and slotted into the back of the net. Micheal Ward then put two further goals into the Fintown net in the space of 10 minutes. The game finished 5-1 to Erne Wanderers. Team performance by both. Referee: Martin Mc ElhinneyGlencar Inn Saturday Division TwoArranmore United 2 Glenree United Reserves 2A draw was a fair result from this match on the Island. The first half ended scoreless as Glenree defended into a stiff breeze and dealt well with Arranmore’s best efforts. Glenree started the second half in blistering fashion when Damien Nelis finished brilliantly from 20 yards on 48 minutes. The lead was short lived however as the home side struck back on 52 minutes when Ruan Reynolds knocked home from 4 yards following good work from Declan Proctor, Arranmore took the lead on 56minutes when Benny Mc Garvey struck an unstoppable free kick from 30yards into the top corner, The home side had chances to finish the game off but did not take them. Glenree made them pay for this and deservedly got an equaliser on 80 minutes when John Mc Clafferty powered home a header from a corner. Both sides pushed hard for the winner but it finished all square. Fair result all round. Good team performances. Referee: Marty Quinn.Curragh Athletic Reserves 1 Gweedore United Reserves 2Curragh started well and should have opened the scoring when a Bernard Lafferty corner was nearly converted by Shea Hannigan. Gary Heaney kept constant pressure on the Gweedore backline but the defence stood strong. Martin Doohan scored a 30th minute penalty for Gweedore to give them the lead. They went further in front when Shaun Paul Mc Mahon scored in the 55th minute for Gweedore. Curragh started to press more and were awarded a penalty in the 60th minute. Justin Mc bride cooly converted the spot kick. Curragh then had good chances fall to Shane Elliott and Gary Heaney only for the keeper to save well. Best for Curragh was Shaun Maxwell. Team effort from Gweedore. Referee: Andrew Mullin.Donegal Town Reserves 1 Tullyvinney Rovers 0Donegal Town welcomed Tullyvinney Rovers to the Hospital Field on Saturday. This was a very keenly contested match. Donegal had chances through a glancing header from Ted Bustard and shots from Joe Mc Intyre and James Feighney but found the Tullyvinney keeper in excellent form. Tullyvinney to their credit put Donegal under sustained pressure until half time and had shots from Renato. Donegal net minder James Mc Daid was in sparkling form making three vital saves. Donegal kept the pressure on in the second half and their hard work paid off when James Feighney beat the off side trap and he finished cooly under the body of the Tullyvinney keeper. Donegal pressed on from this and Chris Hegarty went on a surging run and found himself one and one against the Tullyvinney keeper who made an excellent save. Donegal welcomed back Daniel Mc Hugh after a lengthy lay off. Best for Donegal were Chris Hegarty, Joe Mc Intyre, James Feighney and Daniel Mc Hugh. Team performance from Tullyvinney.Milford United Reserves 2 Keadue Rovers Reserves 1Milford came out on top in a closely contested match at Moyle View. Milford had the better of the opening twenty minutes but we’re unable to test the keeper with some great defending from Keadue. Milford took the lead on thirty minutes through Ciran Blaney after good work by JJ Fleming. The second half began at a frantic pace with Keadue pushing forward and Milford trying to hit them on the break. Keadue got a deserved equaliser on sixty minutes when they scored from a free header from a corner. The game was end to end for the last 20 minutes with the winner coming in the eighty fifth minute when Brendan McGinley got on the end of a Johnny Sweeney corner. Good game of football from both sides.RESULTSSATURDAYOld Orchard Saturday Division OneGlenea United Reserves 4 v 0 St. Catherines ReservesOrchard F.C. 4 v 1 Castlefin Celtic ReservesMulroy Celtic 1 v 2 Glencar CelticFintown Harps AFC 1 v 5 Erne WanderersGlencar Inn Saturday Division TwoArranmore United 2 v 2 Glenree United ReservesCurragh Athletic Reserves 1 v 2 Gweedore United ReservesDonegal Town Reserves 1 v 0 Tullyvinney RoversMilford United Reserves 2 v 1 Keadue Rovers ReservesSUNDAY 30-03-2014Brian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionKilmacrennan Celtic 0 v 1 Lifford CelticDonegal Town 3 v 2 Cranford UnitedSt. Catherines 2 v 2 Gweedore CelticRathmullan Celtic 4 v 2 Milford UnitedWatson Hire Division OneGweedore United 3 v 0 Kerrykeel ’71 F.C.Castlefin Celtic 3 v 3 Cappry RoversCT Ball Division TwoRaphoe Town 3 v 0 Ballybofey UnitedConvoy Arsenal 1 v 0 Drumbar F.C.WEDNESDAY 02-04-2014 K.O. 6.45 p.m.Watson Hire Division OneCappry Rovers v Bonagee UnitedSATURDAY 05-04-2014 K.O. 2p.m. (Unless Stated)Old Orchard Saturday Division OneFintown Harps AFC v Mulroy CelticCastlefin Celtic Reserves v Ramelton MarinersSt. Catherines Reserves v Glencar CelticOrchard F.C. v Erne WanderersGlencar Inn Saturday Division TwoCurragh Athletic Reserves v Arranmore United (K.O. 1p.m.)Tullyvinney Rovers v Glenree United ReservesCranford United Reserves v Gweedore United ReservesSUNDAY 06-04-2014 K.O. 2p.m. (Unless Stated)Ulster Junior CupClonmany Shamrocks v Gweedore CelticBrian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionLifford Celtic v St. CatherinesKilmacrennan Celtic v Rathmullan CelticWatson Hire Division OneKeadue Rovers v Drumoghill F.C.Cappry Rovers v Dunkineely CelticCT Ball Division TwoRaphoe Town v Deele HarpsWEDNESDAY 09-04-2014 K.O. 6.45 p.m.Watson Hire Division OneCappry Rovers v Castlefin CelticGlencar Inn Saturday Division TwoMilford United Reserves v Glenree United ReservesDONEGAL LEAGUE – ALL THE REPORTS, RESULTS AND FIXTURES was last modified: March 30th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Donegal Leaguelast_img read more

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! ALTADENA – Up the long and winding stretch of North Fair Oaks Avenue Sunday, the legendary, bohemian Zorthian Ranch was flooded with people in all manner of colorful costumes and bursting at the seams with rock ‘n’ roll tunes, chili, beer and even bubbles for the Doo Dah Parade Queen tryouts.Unlike the Rose Queen, the queen for the 29th Occasional Pasadena Doo Dah Parade could come in any gender or age, taking on almost any form imaginable. The winner, 23-year-old Cherie Flores of Los Angeles, entertained the judges by swirling blazing poi balls on a chain.A role that celebrates individuality, the Doo Dah Queen is expected to represent, well, everything. Tom Coston, president of the Light Bringer Project that bought the rights to the parade from creator Peter Apanel in 1995 for $2, said the queen should be “a little kooky, a little wonderful, a little beautiful, a little funny and a little sexy.”With everyone from Abraham Lincoln to Uncle Fester from “The Addams Family” to a self-proclaimed “Desperate Non-Housewife” on hand Sunday afternoon, the judges had their pick of the litter. For her first Doo Dah Queen tryout, “Jumpin’ Joan” Dow, 41, of Sierra Madre came dressed as not-your-average cheerleader, wearing a bright blue wig and matching lipstick, a yellow jersey, giant fake, pointy breasts and an electric blue skirt. She carried and waved blue and yellow pompoms.“I pumped them up special for today,” she told an onlooker, pointing to her enormous chest. Dow supporters Karen and Brian Utke, 45, brought their 7-year-old son Joe, whose hair was spiked up and dyed in a green, red, orange and blue rainbow of sorts. All three wore tie-dyed T-shirts.“We wanted to let kids know that adults can unwind, too,” said Karen Utke, an admitted child of the ’70s herself, of why so many children were in attendance. Little did many of the attendees know that there was a narrowly avoided protest. Sue Behrens and her sister Ellen Hoffman, both of Sierra Madre, were co-Doo Dah queens in 1993, back when the queen was chosen by Apanel. Behrens said she planned to protest the fact that none of the queens from 1993 and prior, when Apanel was in charge, had been asked to be judges since the Light Bringer Project took over the parade.But at the last moment, Behrens got the call to be a judge.“I have a picket sign all ready,” she said, laughing. Her boyfriend, Steve Vargas, was playing guitar Sunday afternoon with his band, Horses on Astroturf, at the ranch. molly.okeon@sgvn.com(626) 578-6300, EXT. 4496last_img read more

Jetstar losing loyalty battle  as on-time reliability slumps

first_imgAustralia’s biggest low-cost carrier Jetstar has lost its long-held mantle as the most reliable budget carrier to its smaller rival, Tigerair. As the Qantas subsidiary used to do to Tigerair regularly, Jetstar has been trounced in the latest month’s on-time performance figures for June 2016.And it’s no one-off result. Jetstar now lags the field by a considerable margin in who is likely to get you to your destination on time, even though Australia, with its relatively benign year-round weather, leads the world for airline punctuality.In June, just 73.4 per cent of Jetstar’s flights arrived on time and even fewer, 70.9 per cent, departed on time, which is defined as less than 15 minutes after the scheduled time.It’s the airline’s worst performance since December 2015, when only 68 per cent of Jetstar’s flights arrived on-time. Those are the sort of numbers that Tigerair use to rack up before it was taken over by the Virgin Australia group in October 2014.However, since the takeover, Tigerair – grounded in 2011 for safety breaches – is not only making money for the first time under new boss Rob Sharp, but is defying gravity for a budget carrier by contending with and sometimes leading the full-service carriers in punctuality.In June, 80 per cent of Tigerair flights arrived on time – nearly seven percentage points clear of Jetstar, its major rival for cheap holiday flying and no-frills interstate air travel.Overall in June, Virgin was Australia’s most reliable airline, shading Qantas 85.4 per cent to 84.8 per cent for on-time arrivals.“We don’t shy away from the fact our punctuality hasn’t been up to scratch in recent months,” a Jetstar spokesman says.“While we have had some poor months, for the first five months of the year our on-time arrivals were running at around 80 per cent.“We know it’s critically important to our customers and we’re working hard behind the scenes to improve our performance.”One of the reasons Tigerair is still so small in Australia is that it developed a poor reputation for reliability in the years before the Virgin takeover, when it was controlled by Singaporean interests.Tigerair Singapore is now part of the Singapore Airlines (SIA) group and has a new lease on life as the main feeder carrier for SIA low-cost subsidiary Scoot, which flies a fleet of Boeing 787 widebody jets, mostly around Asia and soon to Europe.Tigerair Australia has a fleet of just 17 narrowbody jets (14 A320s and three 737s used to fly longer routes to Bali from Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth), compared with Jetstar’s fleet of around 70 planes, including 11 787s.The Virgin group announced earlier this month that Tigerair would transition to an all-737 fleet as part of strategy of simplifying its fleet. Virgin has around 80 737s in Australia and no A320s apart from those operated by Tigerair.last_img read more
