Small cities are defined as incorporated cities within Thurston County with a population of 10,000 or less.On July 8, the Board of Directors of the Port Economic Development Corporation reviewed Finance Director Jeff Smith’s analysis of the cities’ applications, qualified the eligibility of the projects, and recommended that the Commission approve the funding awards.Here is how the cities will use their 2014 Small Cities Program funds:· Bucoda’s renovation of the historic Oddfellows Building into a community center will receive funds for the fourth year. Two rooms will be restored for a free clinic, museum and other uses.· Rainier will use the Port funds to plan for a waste water treatment facility so that commercial development can go forward in a cost-effective manner and generate new jobs.· Tenino will enhance the prospects of additional jobs related to tourism by using the Small Cities’ funding award to prepare a Tenino Park Master Plan.· Yelm is planning a new community center which will bring activity and regional customers into the historic downtown.

URUGUAYAN MARE GENEROSIDADE BLOWS OUT TOTE BOARD WITH 71-1 WIN IN GRADE II, $200,000 SAN LUIS REY STAKES; PEREIRA & LOBO TEAM FOR 1 ½ LENGTH WIN GOING MILE & ONE HALF ON TURF IN 2:28.80
ARCADIA, Calif. (March 13, 2016)–In a massive upset, 71-1 longshot Generosidade flew late to take Sunday’s Grade II, $200,000 San Luis Rey Stakes under Tiago Pereira by 1 ½ lengths while covering a mile and one half on a turf course listed as “good” in 2:28.80. Trained by Paulo Lobo, Uruguayan-bred Generosidade made her third stateside start today.“I was so excited because this is my (second) graded win in North America,” said an ebullient Pereira, who like Lobo, is a Brazilian native. “Generosidade was so good today. We sat behind, we let the pace go and the last three eighths, I was able to get outside and get up to win it.“Paulo told me to relax the first part of the race in the other three times I rode her (three) because she liked to do that when she ran in Brazil. But, in the three races she’s run here, they were not so good…Her last work was good and today she was too good for them.”The longest shot in a field of 10 older horses that included four females, Generosidade paid $144.80, $45.60 and $17.60.Owned by her breeder, Haras Phillipson, Inc., Generosidade got her fifth win from 16 lifetime starts and with the winner’s share of $120,000, increased her earnings to $206,894.“She’s a marathon horse,” said Lobo. “She loves the distance and we were looking for a mile and a half. She had her (recent) race (finishing sixth in the 1 ½ miles turf Astra Stakes here on Jan. 17). I think the rain helped me because she’s seven years old. She has issues, little problems, and the softer ground helped her.Trained by Ron McAnally and ridden by Tyler Baze, Chilean-bred Quick Casablanca rallied boldly from far back to be second, finishing a neck in front of Brazilian-bred Energia Fribby. Off at 10-1, Quick Casablanca paid $11.00 and $5.60.“I tried to thread the needle (at the top of the lane) and a horse stopped in front of me,” said Baze. “The horse is on the top of his game right now. He’s doing awesome. I can’t wait for the next one.”Ridden by Drayden Van Dyke, Energia Fribby, a 6-year-old mare, rallied wide-out and finished third, a neck in front of Highball. Off at 30-1, Energia Fribby paid $12.00 to show.Fractions on the race were 24.18, 47.61, 1:12.29, 1:38.20 and 2:03.83.There is a massive two-day Pick Six carryover into Thursday at Santa Anita of $548,670.

COLOMBO, Sri Lanka (AP):Sri Lanka cricket captain Angelo Mathews testified before police yesterday over a complaint that some national team players have been approached by a person with an offer to fix matches for money.Financial crimes investigators interviewed Mathews for several hours.”They wanted to know, as the captain, if I knew anything in detail. I answered all the questions,” Mathews said outside the police station. “We all want this game to be clean. Whoever has done something wrong, we want them brought before the court.”Mathews said the inquiry was only about the match-fixing approaches reported by players, not against the players themselves.”The cricketers felt really uncomfortable in the last few days because they were the ones who came forward and reported this to the ICC (International Cricket Council) and SLC,” Mathews said.The questioning came a day after Sri Lanka Cricket, the sport’s local governing body, suspended senior fast bowling coach Anusha Samaranayake for links with a practice bowler who is said to have brought the offers.Left-arm spinner Rangana Herath and opening batsman Kusal Perera reported the approaches to the authorities.Samaranayake, who has been working with the fast bowling academy for many years and helped in the development of many leading bowlers, has been suspended for two months pending an inquiry. The net bowler identified as Gayan Wishwajith has been banned from all cricket activities.- AP
0Shares0000Manchester City escaped with a fine after FIFA investigated the transfer of minors © AFP/File / Paul ELLISPARIS, France, Aug 13 – Manchester City have been found guilty by FIFA of breaking the rules on international transfer and registration of players aged under 18, world football’s governing body announced on Tuesday.The Premier League champions could have faced a transfer ban, but instead FIFA’s Disciplinary Committee fined City 370,000 Swiss Francs (Sh39mn). A FIFA statement said that the punishment “took into account the fact that Manchester City FC accepted its responsibility”.While confirming they were willing to accept the fine, City claimed the problems occurred before FIFA clarified the rules.The club said in a statement that the fine concerned “the international transfer of players under the age of 18, particularly in relation to their trial periods and participation in friendly games.”“The club accepts responsibility for the breaches which arose as a result of misinterpretation of the regulations in question. All of the breaches occurred before December 2016 when guidance on the interpretation of the provisions was issued, since which date Manchester City has been fully compliant.”Last year, FIFA cleared City of any wrongdoing over their 2016 signing of Benjamin Garre from Velez Sarsfield just after the Argentinian midfielder’s 16th birthday.Also in 2018, two players from the Right to Dream football academy in Ghana, Sierra Leone’s George Davies and Ghanaian Dominic Oduro, told Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten that they signed for City and played in youth matches before they turned 18. Both spent two years at the club.Davies last played for Riga FC and Oduro now plays for the Tampa Bay Rowdies in the United States.City are also being investigated by both the Premier League and the Football Association in England and by UEFA, the governing body of European football.The FA said in February it was looking into allegations that City paid £200,000 (Sh26mn) to winger Jadon Sancho’s agent when the player was 14 and still at Watford.FA rules state that young players cannot be represented by an agent until the year they turn 16.Sancho later left City for Borussia Dortmund. He is now an England international.UEFA is focusing on another area and investigating whether City has breached Financial Fair Play rules.City’s English rivals Chelsea are currently serving a one-year transfer ban after also being found guilty by the body in February of breaching regulations relating to the recruitment of minors.Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid have all served recent transfer bans for breaking FIFA rules on the issue.0Shares0000(Visited 35 times, 1 visits today)
Milos Raonic served his way into the third round of the Australian Open on Thursday with a pulsating 6-7(4), 7-6(6), 7-6(11), 7-6(5) victory against former champion Stan Wawrinka.In one of the best matches of the opening rounds, the 196 cm (6.43 ft) Canadian repeatedly served his way out of trouble against an opponent armed with an elegant as well as destructive single-handed backhand.The reserved Canadian raised his fists in triumph after his Swiss opponent misfired on his forehand on match point after four hours of intense play.Raonic, seeded 16, will play Pierre-Hugues Herbert in the third round.Always a pleasure, @stanwawrinka #AusOpen pic.twitter.com/97Ub8jrklk#AusOpen (@AustralianOpen) January 17, 2019NISHIKORI’S GREAT ESCAPEKei Nishikori made another great escape at the Australian Open on Thursday, surviving a second five-set battle and 59 aces from Ivo Karlovic to squeeze into the third round.The Japanese eighth seed was lucky just to be facing the big-serving Croat, having been two sets down in his opener against qualifier Kamil Majchrzak before the Pole suffered muscle cramping and retired mid-way through the fifth.Against Karlovic, however, Nishikori squandered a two-set lead before closing out a tense tiebreak to prevail 6-3, 7-6(6), 5-7, 5-7, 7-6(7) on a sweltering day at Margaret Court Arena.Dripping sweat, the former U.S. Open finalist slumped to his knees in relief, having had to save three break points at 4-4 in the fifth set to prevent towering 39-year-old Karlovic from serving for the match.What it means to survive an #AusOpen 2R five-set thriller pic.twitter.com/mYWHaEDr5oadvertisement#AusOpen (@AustralianOpen) January 17, 2019The first Asian man to ever contest a Grand Slam final, Nishikori joked that Karlovic served as many aces in the match as he would manage in a year.”Even after a few sets he was serving still really well, and there was, yeah, too many aces and (it was) frustrating, too, you know, for my side,” he told reporters.”I (would) rather do three sets, but today he was playing well, and first match, too, the guy was playing really solid.”I could (have) lost these two matches. So yeah, I just need to recover well. But, I mean, it’s only two matches, so I’m not too tired yet.”The 2014 U.S. Open finalist will nonetheless feel lucky to be alive, having squandered a 6-3 lead in the final tiebreak which has a new first-to-10 points format.Karlovic was also wasteful, thumping a regulation volley into the net that would have put him within two points of victory.The 6ft-11in (2.11m) Croat, the oldest man in the second round at Melbourne Park in over 40 years, was unable to serve his way out of trouble and Nishikori nosed in front with a searing return that proved too much for the net-rushing Karlovic’s lunging backhand.Having watched the ball fly past him 59 times from serving machine Karlovic, Nishikori closed out the match with two big first serves of his own, both down the ‘T’, to set up a clash with unseeded Portuguese Joao Sousa.A three-times quarter-finalist at Melbourne Park, Nishikori will hope to ride the wave of support from the army of travelling Japanese fans who chanted his name throughout the Karlovic match.”I feel more support here,” he said when asked to compare the four Grand Slams.”You can tell there are so many Japanese. And also many Asians. I’m sure I feel more comfortable playing this Grand Slam than (any) other Grand Slam.”Also Read | Madison Keys, Elina Svitolina advance to third roundAlso Read | Dhoni, Shaw and Bencic with Federer shine in #10YearChallengeAlso Read | Andy Murray slams Britain Lawn Tennis Association for failing to build on his success
