It has been freshly painted and rewired, new plumbing has been installed and it is styled to perfection.“On the outside it might look like a boat but on the inside, for all intents and purposes, it functions as an apartment,” Ms Kimber said.“People ask how I can get dressed and ready on a boat but it’s got a shower, a toilet and an iron to iron my clothes.

School Recess Today

first_imgThe other day I drove by one of our local schools when the kids were out on what we would have called the playground in my day.  What I saw was not what the fitness experts want to see kids doing.  There were a lot of kids standing around in small groups talking, a few kids were walking around a track, and a few were tossing a ball.  Back in my day, we couldn’t wait to get to recess or noon break so we could play baseball or kickball.  Before you hit the playground, you already had your teams chosen and you wasted no time getting the game started.  The game went on until, in my case, one of the nuns rounded you up and sent you back into the building.I know most schools today have a no-phone policy, but I still go by school buildings and see kids looking at something held in their hands.  Maybe they are so used to using their phone that they look at their hands even when they don’t have a phone in it.  I bet one thing, not many of the kids today go back into the building with any sweat beads anywhere on their body unless it is 95 in the shade and they are sweating just from standing around.last_img read more

(photo by Debra Hix)By Mike SpiekerBELLS, Texas (May 31) – The inaugural Red River IMCA Modified Tour produced its fifth different winner in as many nights Thursday at Grayson County Speedway.Chris Elliott started fifth and charged to the $1,000 payday and a berth on the Fast Shafts All Star Invitational ballot.“This feels so good,” said Elliott in victory lane. “We were working on this thing until 7:30 in the morning. The car has been really good, I just haven’t had any luck in the features. [Grayson County Speedway] is my type of place. This place is awesome. It was a lot of fun out there.”David McKay and Justin Radcliff led the field of 25 IMCA Modifieds to the green flag for the 25-lap feature. McKay grabbed the lead on the opening lap, but Radcliff came storming back to take the point on lap three. Matt Guillaume took advantage of a lap six restart as he raced into second.Elliott, who was the only car in the top five running the cushion, was making progress as he moved into third on lap seven. Two circuits later, Elliott found a way around Guillaume.A thrilling three-wide race for the lead broke out around the halfway point as both Elliott and Guillaume reeled in Radcliff for the lead. The lead trio went three-wide down the back straightaway before they all swapped lanes in turns three and four.Exiting the turn, Elliott made a textbook crossover move underneath both Radcliff and Guillaume to take the lead entering turn one.Once out front, Elliott found his groove up on the high side once again and set sail.At the line, Elliott topped Sustaire, Riley Simmons and Guillaume.Results – 1.

USC falls in final home stand of season

first_imgThe Trojans faltered on Senior Day as they dropped their 10th consecutive game of the season to Oregon at the Galen Center on Saturday, 78-63.Duck hunter · Senior guard Pe’Shon Howard led the Trojans with 20 points — 16 of which came in the first half — against Oregon. Howard entered his final home game at USC averaging 10.9 points per game. – Jojo Korsh | Daily TrojanIt was the last game that USC (10-19, 1-15 Pac-12) would play in front of its home crowd this season, as the team goes back on the road next weekend to finish off regular season conference play before traveling to Las Vegas for the Pac-12 tournament.For the Trojans’ five seniors, Pe’Shon Howard, D.J. Haley, Omar Oraby, Daniel Munoz and J.T. Terrell, it was the last game they would ever play at the Galen Center.These seniors would combine for 41 of the Trojans’ 63 total points  while junior guard Byron Wesley tacked on 12 points for USC in the losing effort.“[The seniors] played really good basketball and we saw that in the score, back and forth for 30 minutes,” said USC head coach Andy Enfield.Howard, who transferred to USC from Maryland this season, led USC with 20 points, three short of his career-high 23, in his final game at home.“Pe’Shon is really such a great player and he came out here and he really played his heart out,” Oregon forward Mike Moser said.Oregon (20-8, 8-8) once again was too much to handle for the Trojans, however, who lost their eighth straight to the Ducks.In addition to reaching the 20th victory plateau for the fourth straight year, Oregon also picked up its fifth consecutive victory on a rainy day that resembled the type of weather the Ducks are used to playing in back home.The Trojans stuck around for most of the game, as the two teams went into halftime tied at 36.At halftime, the 1954 USC Final Four team was recognized by Athletic Director Pat Haden for being the only USC team to ever reach the Final Four. But the good vibes from halftime did not carry over into second half.The last time the two teams played in Eugene, Ore., the Trojans led the Ducks by four at the half before Oregon pulled away to prevail 78-66.Saturday’s game would follow a  similar script as the Trojans trailed 61-60 with 9:21 to play, but the game slipped away in the final nine minutes, when Oregon outscored them 17-3 to pull away.“I was really trying to get guys going in the second half toward the end, being aggressive,” Howard said.But the Trojans just couldn’t keep up with the Ducks, turning the ball over 12 times in total compared to Oregon’s 10 and racking up 26 team fouls to Oregon’s 18.“I thought we were playing excellent team basketball,” Enfield said. “We were making the right plays, we were making shots, and then we turned the ball over four or five teams during that crucial stretch.”Moser was a force to be reckoned with for the Ducks in their scoring attack and on the boards, posting a double-double with 20 points and 12 rebounds to lead all players.Oregon had three other players reach the double-figure mark with Joseph Young tallying 16 points and Jason Calliste and Elgin Cook adding 13 and 12 points, respectively, off the bench.It has been a tough season for the Trojans, who went winless in the month of February and won only one game in January, against a respectable Cal team.“If you would have asked us before the season, we would have expected to win more games,” Enfield said. “But, at the same time, we have played some good basketball teams, but they deserve credit as well.”The ending to the 2013-2014 season resembles that of the 2011-2012 season, when the Trojans dropped 10 in a row to finish the season under former head coach Kevin O’Neill.Unless they can pull off a win against Washington State next weekend, the Trojans will finish the regular season at the bottom of the Pac-12 standings.“Besides our first five games, we’ve competed every game,” Howard said. “We go into every game looking to win.”Though the team was selected to finish 11th in the preseason conference polls, few people thought that USC would end up with only one or two Pac-12 wins under Enfield in his first season as head coach.The Trojans will try to stay out of the basement as they travel north to take on the Washington State Cougars and the Washington Huskies on March 6 and 8.last_img read more
