(AP Photo/John Minchillo)MASON, Ohio — Serena Williams bounced back from the most lopsided loss of her career, cruising past Daria Gavrilova 6-1, 6-2 at the Western & Southern Open on Monday.Williams, a 23-time Grand Slam winner who returned to the tour this year after the birth of her first child, needed just 65 minutes to dispatch Gavrilova. She’ll face eighth-seeded Petra Kvitova in Tuesday’s second round.ADVERTISEMENT “You’ve got to be able to go back-to-back,” said Williams, a two-time Cincinnati champion. “I don’t get byes anymore right now. I’m OK with it.”Williams lost to Johanna Konta 6-1, 6-0 in San Jose, California, before withdrawing from last week’s Rogers Cup in Montreal.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’Tenth-seeded Novak Djokovic regrouped after blowing a 3-0 second-set lead to get past Steve Johnson, 6-4, 7-6 (4).

Federer, seeded second, has won in Cincinnati a record seven times but hasn’t played here since winning in 2015. In 2016, he had a knee injury, and in 2017 he had back problems.“Cincinnati has always been a good tournament for me,” said Federer, the reigning Australian Open champion. “I was sad not to play here last year, and two years ago there wasn’t a chance. I’m glad to be back.”Even with the top-ranked Nadal missing, Federer liked the strength of this field, especially with Murray and Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic having recovered from injuries.“That’s why you have such a good, exciting draw,” Federer said before Murray’s match was over. “It’s a pity Rafa isn’t playing. He would have added massively to that part of the draw.”Grigor Dmitrov, the defending champion who is seeded fifth, was not entirely upset about Nadal’s absence.“When Rafa is missing, he’s missed, not so much by the players as much as the fans,” he said. “All joking aside, I love spending time with Rafa and practicing with him and playing with him. I would be the last person to say I wouldn’t want to play with him.”Monday’s first full day of main-draw competition opened with 13th-seeded Madison Keys holding off Bethanie Mattek-Sands 3-6, 7-6 (3), 6-4 to reach the second round. Wild-card Victoria Azarenka, a two-time Australian Open champion, also came from behind to beat Carla Suarez Navarro 6-7 (5), 6-2, 6-4.Tenth-seeded Julia Goerges was losing to Kristina Mladenovic 6-4, 3-2 when she retired because of a lower left leg injury. Advancing were Annett Kontaveit, Aryna Sabalenka, Lesia Tsurenko, wild card Svetlana Kuznetsova, and qualifiers Rebecca Peterson, Ajia Tomjanovic, Viktoria Kuzmova.On the men’s side, Sam Querrey ground out a 6-4, 6-7 (5), 7-6 (5) win over fellow American and ninth-seeded John Isner. Querrey gained an edge with a mini-break on the fifth point of the second tiebreaker when Isner sailed a forehand wide of the backhand sideline. Querry closed out the 2-hour, 7-minute match with an ace that survived a challenge by Isner.Kei Nishikori beat Andrey Rublev 7-5, 6-3, and 13th-seeded Pablo Carreno Busta topped Richard Gasquet 6-3, 2-6, 6-3. Other winners were Leonardo Mayer, Jeremy Chardy, Benoit Paire, Peter Gojowczyk, Denis Shapovalov and qualifier Bradley Klahn.

1 dead, 3 missing in piracy attacks

first_img– Captain thrown overboard; 5 arrestedA fisherman is now dead and three others are missing following attacks on three boats by pirates on theSAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESSAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESSAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESSAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESCorentyne River on Friday evening.Dead is Hemchand Sookdeo, 45, also called “Dread” of Number 55 Village, Corentyne, Berbice, Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne). His lifeless body was pulled from the muddy waters tangled in a fisherman’s seine on Saturday afternoon.Those missing are Dochan Sukra, 54, also called “Butcher” of Number 55 Village; Dhanpaul Rampaul of Number 67 Village; and “Boyo” (only name given).The Captain of one of the boats – Seepersaud Persaud, 43, of Corriverton – in which four fishermen were travelling, was rescued after being tossed into the Corentyne River.Divisional Commander, Assistant Commissioner Ian Amsterdam told Guyana Times that the Police have since locate a boat suspected to that belonging to the pirates at a koker at Number 65 Village and have since arrested five men.Meanwhile, the crew members of two other fishing vessels, which were also attacked on Friday night were said to be safe. Up to press time, they could come ashore since the tide was low.Reports indicate that the pirates attacked the vessels and in the process threw gasoline on the five crew members, threatening set them ablaze.The surviving captain told Guyana Times that there were five pirates but only three of them were masked. The men, he said, all carried cutlasses. According to him, the men approached his vessel and demanded that they hand over their catch. According to the Captain, he and his crew were forced into the pirates’ boat, which was anchored at the time.“When we deh ah drive to shore, they tie up two of me workman and they tell me fug throw over me wuk man an after me nah go throw them, he shove me over.”Recounting the ordeal, Persaud said he swam for three hours and reached another fishing boat and was rescued. He said that after he was rescued, the Number 66 Fishermen’s Co-op was contacted and a rescue boat was sent out for him.The attack on Persaud’s boat took place about five miles near Suriname waters.The boat which is valued at $6 million and powered by two 48 horsepower engines is still missing. The catch was valued at $120,000.Persaud, who has been in the fishing business for more than 15 years, said it was not the first time he was attacked by pirates. “I get attack plenty times but they never throw awe overboard before.”Meanwhile, the dead fisherman’s wife, Basmattie Sookdeo, said the father of four had previously been working on his sister’s boat but left and was making his first trip with Persaud. He left on Thursday and was expected to return on Sunday. She said that her husband has been a fisherman since the age of 15.According to his son, Tej Sookdeo, fishing was all his father could do. “All his life he is a fisherman. I know is a dangerous work and I always expect that something could happen,” he told this publication.Meanwhile, it was the third trip for Rampaul, whose main occupation is a cane harvester. The missing man’s wife told Guyana Times that because on some out of crop periods and no work available in the rice industry, Rampaul previously made two trips at sea in smaller vessels into waters that are not considered dangerous. This was his first deep water fishing trip.Meanwhile, Police have launched an investigation into the incident.“While ranks were investigating, they received additional information which gave a description of the boat involved and the amount of persons who were involved in the attack. As a result of that, we went to Number 65 foreshore where we saw a similar boat fitting the description. We arrested five persons who are in custody at this moment. Those persons are in custody and the boat is detained. We will be focusing to see whether we can restore the stolen articles which we know up to now is two 48 outboard engines. Based on that, we will conduct other raids to see if we can get information leading to the recovery of those engines,” Amsterdam explained told this newspaper.Investigations are ongoing.last_img read more

SARU will drive away investors – Jagdeo warns

first_img…as agency targets high-rise buildingsThe latest decision by Government’s illegitimate anti-corruption body to scrutinise owners of high-rise buildings in the country has great potential to drive away investors, former President and Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo has warned.Director of the State Assets Recovery Unit (SARU) Dr Clive Thomas said the agency, which is currently without legal framework, is in the process of mapping all the high-rise buildings with the aim of investigating their owners for tax evasion and money laundering.According to media reports, Dr Thomas wants to ensure that the money used to construct the buildings was clean, that the building is not a shell company, that the owners are paying their taxes, that the building is not being used as a conduit for corrupt activities, and that even the land was lawfully obtained.Dr Thomas contended that there is an underground economy in Guyana and Government is hell-bent on identifying the individuals involved.He said once SARU, which will be renamed the State Assets Recovery Agency (SARA), gets it legal framework, it will spare no time in going after these individuals.But the Leader of the Opposition warned that such actions will destroy the country’s economy as it will act as a repellent to investors.“These loose mouthed people are damaging our economy,” he said, referring to Dr Thomas. “The business community and ordinary people operate on government signals. If the entire government speaks as if it hates investment and investors, and if you put up a building, you’ll be subjected to a whole range of scrutiny by the Government, then investors are just going to withdraw, no one will want to invest,” Jagdeo explained.He also contended that there is absolutely no logic in targeting high-rise buildings in trying to track down tax evaders and money launderers.“What’s the logic? Let’s assume you have one five-story building and another person have 50 one-story building… he’s going to map the one five-story building and you’re subjected to investigation and another person has 50 properties around the city, but you won’t be going after that person. What’s the logic?” he highlighted.The former President cautioned that businessmen and even the ordinary citizenry act on government signals, and if government gives the impression that it is against investment, then investors and the ordinary man will respond in accordance – by withholding their money.“Sometimes you can get everything right. but if the signals are wrong about your intent then people act on signals; investors do so, as well as ordinary citizens and so we. I don’t have much hope that they would listen because of the arrogance,” Jagdeo lamented.Reports indicate that SARU already did an inventory of over 100 buildings in Guyana.last_img read more

Conference to focus on bullying

first_imgOfficials from the Children’s Planning Council’s Service Planning Area 7 said bullying is a serious problem, with studies showing that between 15 percent and 25 percent of U.S. schoolchildren are bullied with some frequency. The issue was of such concern to a parent group in Whittier called Fuerza Unida that they organized a small anti-bullying seminar with SPA 7 officials last year in Montebello, said Cynthia Robledo, SPA 7 council coordinator. “They wanted to have a conference this year because their aim is to form more anti-bullying policies at all schools, and let schools know of the resources available to them when it comes to bullying,” Robledo said. Parents worry that different schools react differently to bullying issues, resulting in uneven discipline that can send mixed messages to students Robledo said. Of particular concern to local parents is the fact that some schools simply suspend the bully, with no follow-up action or counseling. “That isn’t always the appropriate thing to do,” Robledo said. MONTEBELLO – An anti-bullying conference for families this weekend will take on issues such as anger management and the use of myspace.com, organizers said. Sponsored by the Los Angeles County Children’s Planning Council, the Anti-Bullying/Cyber-Bullying Conference for Families will feature workshops covering issues such as self-esteem, discipline, depression, MySpace, as well as issues related to bullying. Participants will divide up into three age-appropriate groups – parents, elementary school children, and middle and high school students. The conference is free and open to everyone. Lunch will be provided. Child care for children 2 to 5 years old also will be provided. Parents “would like to see some official process for dealing with this disciplinary problem, such as a counseling session, or help with connecting children with counseling so they can understand what they’re doing is wrong,” she added. Parent workshops will be held in Spanish, with an English translator; youth workshops will be in English, with a Spanish translator available.

NoHo rising

first_imgMoney and concrete are rapidly replacing a generation of talk and expectations in this wannabe artsy community, long the stepchild of downtown Los Angeles and star-studded Hollywood. The buzz has escalated with NoHo Commons — a $200 million complex of lofts, apartments and shops at the core of the Arts District — and with the new NoHo Tower, a 15-story condo and retail project along Lankershim Boulevard. But now, within the next month, work will begin on what is expected to be the area’s signature project: development of up to 2 million square feet in a commercial-retail-residential mix worth hundreds of millions of dollars. The lynchpin development, on 16.5 acres owned by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, would be the largest in NoHo and includes the possibility of a business park for nearby entertainment companies, live theaters to complement the existing arts community, open space and streetscape, a refurbished historic train depot, about 400 new apartments and extensive retail and commercial projects. “I think (the MTA property) has really the possibility of creating a town center (in NoHo) where there is none,” said Roger Moliere, MTA executive officer of real property management and development. “It will spur economic development like crazy. People can live and work and shop there.” Moliere said that as NoHo Commons has emerged with Community Redevelopment Agency assistance, and other residential and commercial projects have gotten under way, the community has reached “critical mass.” Since 2001, Community Redevelopment Agency spending in the NoHo redevelopment area — which includes the MTA property — has soared sevenfold to $35 million, the most of any redevelopment area in the city. In return, rising property values driven by projects in the area are expected to generate an additional $50 million for redevelopment over the next five years. “This was an optimal time,” Moliere said of efforts to develop the MTA property. “I looked at it and said, Let’s hit this one … hit while the iron’s hot.’” Moliere said selection of a development team for the MTA property is expected to begin within 30 days with a request for qualifications. Finalists will then be asked to submit full proposals. Development of what now is a parking lot and largely vacant land could begin in about two years. The land would be leased to the developer, and the MTA might also negotiate a percent of the project’s gains. County supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky, who represents NoHo and as an MTA commissioner led efforts to block plans for apartment complexes on the property, said the site’s location near the subway and Orange Line busway have boosted its development potential. “There’s no other site in Los Angeles today at the convergence of two transit lines that offers this opportunity,” Yaroslavsky said. Yaroslavsky is holding out for a top-notch development that would act as a magnet for the area. “We have to take a long, 50-year view. … This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and we can pick and choose when the lifetime begins,” he said. Councilman Tom LaBonge, whose district includes the project, said the convergence of the subway and busway could boost the East Valley much like the four-level freeway interchange boosted downtown in the 1950s. LaBonge said he would like to see more residential units as well as retail and commercial, while restoring an old train depot on the site. “These are the last key parcels,” LaBonge said of the MTA property. “We have to make sure we do the right thing and balance the proper development and density.” Bruce Ackerman, president and CEO of the Economic Alliance of San Fernando Valley and a CRA commissioner, said his biggest concern is that the MTA property might be leased mainly for residential development. “If housing is too attractive, it could get the nod over commercial, and we don’t want to see that. (There needs to be) some mixed use,” he said. About 1,500 residential units currently are under construction in NoHo, with about 100,000 square feet of mixed-use and commercial properties under way. For the MTA site, Ackerman said he already knows of several interested developers. And Moliere said he also knows of several large development companies that would be lured by the unusually large size of the property in an area ripe for growth. Rick Caruso, CEO of Caruso Affiliated, a major developer who completed The Grove in Los Angeles, said he wasn’t familiar with the MTA property but has heard about NoHo’s growth. That’s prompted Caruso, who previously has passed on development opportunities in the area because of crime and other concerns, to say he’s ready to take another look. “You’ve got a lot of density out there. If people are focused on it and there’s new housing going in … (when) there’s a lot of energy and focus it’s worth looking at it.” Yaroslavsky said such interest is a “good barometer” that the NoHo development landscape has changed even as the giant downtown redevelopment areas are winding down. The Central Business District, for example, closed in 2000, freeing up over $240 million to the county, city, schools and special districts. And the Bunker Hill redevelopment area spent just over $25 million in fiscal 2005, but mainly to retire debt on old land acquisitions. Robert “Bud” Ovrom — the architect of Burbank’s economic takeoff who moved from head of the CRA, where he had pledged to jump-start NoHo, to Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s Deputy Mayor of Housing and Economic Development — said development of the MTA property will define NoHo for decades. “You couldn’t assemble a site that big today,” he said. The largest MTA parcel — 10.5 acres containing the subway entrance — is bounded by Cumpston Avenue to the north, Fair Avenue on the east, Lankershim Boulevard to the west, and Chandler Boulevard on the south. The remaining 6 acres run to Tujunga Avenue near Chandler. Meanwhile, to the north in another redevelopment area within NoHo, plans are afoot for turning the aged Valley Plaza shopping center into a $560 million mega-mall involving developer J.H. Snyder Co. With the backing of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, that project is envisioned to include new housing, stores and restaurants. While some residents have concerns there will be too many apartment buildings included in the project on the nearby Laurel Plaza property, with too great an increase in traffic and other impacts, officials are watching closely. Councilwoman Wendy Greuel said she wants the “super majority” of residential units in the development to be owned, not rented and said traffic and other impacts will be addressed. “NoHo is an area that’s blossoming,” Greuel said, whose district includes the plaza. “This is a project that was stagnant. … (Now) this is a top priority.” Sol P. Ajalat was one of those lured to the area by its promise. Ajalat moved his law firm from Burbank to a NoHo highrise along Lankershim Boulevard about a year and a half ago to take advantage of the reasonable rent while banking on the development boom. “The reason we moved into this building was in anticipation of all the changes,” said Ajalat, whose offices were initially surrounded by vacant land but now are surrounded by new housing projects, a crane on the skyline and construction crews. “What was attractive, the area was still depressed, but we knew it would go up,” he said. The mood in the streets has changed, too. “Now there’s an invigoration,” he said. Longtime resident Guy Weddington McCreary, whose family was among community founders in 1886, worked on a master plan for revitalization of the area in 1968. McCreary said he wasn’t sure he’d live to see the day when North Hollywood would boom again. “It feels like our long-term hopes and aspirations are coming to reality. … Right now we’re at the right time, at the right place, for this vision to take place and happen. “We’re finally there. You like to see … at least before you die, it booming as it used to be.” — Beth Barrett, (818) 713-3731 beth.barrett@dailynews.com AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
