City replacing presidential portraits

first_img As a result, City Council member this week voted to mothball the portraits – but not the tradition. The plan is to purchase ready-made copies of presidential paintings on a computer disk, which can then be used to transfer the images onto more-durable vinyl surfaces, said officials, who hope to have the new images ready for display by this summer. “We’re trying to maintain the tradition,” said Councilman Hal Malkin. “It’s the Avenue of the Presidents. For more on this story, pick up tomorrow’s Whittier Daily News. LA MIRADA – Some of their faces have turned green, or are fading to white. A few noses are missing. Each July for the past 31 years, the solemn images of 42 U.S. presidents have watched over traffic along La Mirada Boulevard – known locally as the Avenue of the Presidents – from wood-framed portraits painted by the late local artist Cy Young. The unique seasonal display is possibly the only one its kind in the country, said Tom Robinson, director of community services. But now, most of the 4-feet wide, 6-feet tall portraits are clearly showing their age. Their paint is flaking away and discoloring. Even their wooden frames are deteriorating to the point where they could pose a hazard to vehicles. 165Let’s talk business.Catch up on the business news closest to you with our daily newsletter.

Cubs and D-backs toss out their best

first_img“He’s the most even-keeled guy you could ever meet,” Arizona catcher Chris Snyder said. “He’s not going to get too high, he’s not going to get too down on himself. He’s just going to go about his business, throw his game and whatever happens, happens.” Zambrano (18-13) didn’t allow a run in his last two outings, six innings in an 8-0 victory over Pittsburgh on Sept. 23 and seven innings in a 6-0 win at Cincinnati on Friday night, when the Cubs clinched the NL Central title. “He’s probably the most competitive guy I’ve ever met,” DeRosa said, “just a fiery individual who wants the ball in the big moment, and he’s going to get it.” Arizona won the season series with the Cubs, 4-2, but never faced Zambrano. It could be an eye-opener for the youngsters Diamondbacks manager Bob Melvin will have in his lineup. “We don’t have a lot of postseason experience,” Melvin said. “We’ll see how that plays out. Our guys are pretty excitable. They like to go out there and play.” Zambrano insists he won’t wear his emotions on his sleeve when he takes the mound. “I don’t want to be pumped up,” he said. “I just want to be calm and let the moment come, let the game come and pitch my game. I don’t want to be too excited. Sometimes when you are too excited, you’re trying to do too much, that’s when the problem comes, when you don’t have control of yourself.” This from a player who punched his catcher, Michael Barrett, in the dugout and then continued the fight in the clubhouse earlier this season. “Let’s talk about the playoffs, man,” Zambrano said. “Whatever happened in the past, let’s leave it there. I don’t like to remember bad things about my life and my career. What I like to remember is the moment where we are now. We are in a good situation.” Barring a sweep, the Diamondbacks will get another look at Zambrano on Sunday. Cubs manager Lou Piniella confirmed he’d bring the right-hander back on short rest to pitch in Game 4 at Chicago. The Cubs were a confident bunch when they arrived at Chase Field, although they said all the proper respectful things about an Arizona team that was outscored overall by its opponents and was last in the league in hitting. “From what I gather from the guys,” DeRosa said, “we really feel we have a shot to do this.” A World Series title would be the first for the Cubs since 1908 and would bring elation to a legion of long-suffering fans. “We realize if we’re the team to get it done how special it would be,” DeRosa said, “but we can’t worry about all that. We can’t carry the weight of 99 years and family traditions and all of that stuff. We just have to go out and play baseball and if it happens reap the benefits of it.” While downplaying talk that his team is a favorite, Piniella said “a team with experience probably should have a little bit of an edge, but we have a great deal of respect for Arizona, we really do.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Their common bond is talent, and their duel in the desert tonight will go a long way toward determining the outcome of the division series between Webb’s Arizona Diamondbacks and Zambrano’s Chicago Cubs. Chicago second baseman Mark DeRosa called Webb “one of the best pitchers in the game.” “But they’ve got to face `Z’ too, so it’s not going to be easy for them,” DeRosa said Tuesday. “It’s going to be one of those things where the first team to grab the momentum is going to have a nice day.” Going into tonight’s Game 1 of the best-of-5 NL Division Series, both aces are on a roll. Webb (18-10) is 10-2 since the All-Star break. He allowed two runs in seven innings Friday at Colorado in a 4-2 victory that clinched a playoff berth for the young Diamondbacks. It was the Rockies’ only loss in their last 15 games. BASEBALL: Arizona’s Webb and Chicago’s Zambrano look to provide an early jump in NLDS.

first_imgDonegal boss Jim McGuinness will derive little comfort from the fact Sligo could be without several key players for tonight’s important Allianz Football League Division Two encounter at Ballybofey.That’s because he know what it’s like – since the beginning of the season he has been without several players who were either tied to their universities or who were injured.McGuinness stresses that he has had just 17 fit players recently and that certainly makes him wary of the challenge that Sligo will post tonight. “Sligo is going to be a tough game, there is no doubt about that,” said the county manager.“But after the disappointment of the Dr McKenna Cup we are looking forward to it.”Noel McGee and Colm McFadden return to the squad for the game (throw-in 7.30pm).McGUINNESS WARY OF SLIGO CHALLENGE IN BALLYBOFEY TONIGHT was last modified: February 6th, 2011 by gregShare 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)last_img read more

Fabinho reveals who talked up Liverpool ahead of his transfer

first_imgFabinho has reported for pre-season training at Liverpool and can’t wait to get going.The Reds signed him from Monaco in a £40million transfer earlier in the summer and now have an incredibly powerful midfield. LIVERPOOL NEWS The passion Liverpool’s plans for pre-season ahead of first friendly against Chester ALL THE INFO MACHINE time for respect Watch James Milner begin his pre-season training in true James Milner style Liverpool told they should have signed ‘special’ Jordan Pickford before Everton center_img Henderson celebrating might just be one of football’s great sights Stat that shows Liverpool’s Henderson is England’s most important player Every single one of Liverpool’s 2018/19 Premier League fixtures REVEALED 🤙 @_fabinhotavares 🤙— Liverpool FC (@LFC) July 3, 2018Along with the Brazilian, Naby Keita joined an area of the pitch already containing Jordan Henderson, James Milner and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to name a few.And Fabinho said his compatriot Roberto Firmino added to the excitement of joining “one of the biggest clubs in the world”.“Firstly, [Roberto] sent me some messages saying that Jurgen Klopp had been following me for some time and liked my style of play,” he told FourFourTwo.“Then, when we were close to finalising the deal, he started giving me some tips about life in the city. He told me Liverpool was a fantastic place, just a little cold every now and again!”The midfielder said he needed little convincing about joining the club anyway and has already discussed where he might play under Klopp this season.“He said I might play in a few different positions but the plan is to use me in midfield and I’m available to play wherever he needs me. He left the best possible impression.“He told me the calendar is demanding in England and that he needs players like me. It was a huge honour to hear such a compliment and that’s what I wanted for my career – a move to a big club that knew they could count on me.“[The day I signed] was party day! [My wife and I] were both smiling at everything. I was really anxious during all of the negotiations, so when it was time for me to sign the contract I couldn’t have been happier – a dream come true.“When I was doing the medical exams, I couldn’t stop asking people, ‘When does it finally become official?’ You don’t sign for one of the biggest clubs in the world every day you know!“A club with Liverpool’s history wants you? Come on, you just pack your bags and go! It will be an honour to wear the famous red shirt. For a club like Liverpool, a good season means trophies.“Perhaps we can win the Champions League; we were so close to winning it last season. I’m optimistic about the future and I’m looking forward to winning a lot of titles with Liverpool.” One-touch rondo time at Melwood. 😮💨 #LFCPreSeason— Liverpool FC (@LFC) July 3, 2018Speaking about Fabinho and fellow new arrival, Naby Keita, Klopp told he is pleased to have them both there for day one of pre-season training because there is more for the new boys to learn. “They have to adapt to our style of play. We have nine games until the season starts and we will need them all,” he said. REVEALED last_img read more
