On June 27, Colombian police announced the arrest of a regional leader of the FARC guerrilla group who allegedly handled the politics of the kidnapping of French journalist Romeo Langlois, who was held for slightly over a month. “Within the last few hours, alias ‘Nury’ or ‘La Peluda’ [The Hairy One] was arrested, the political leader of the FARC’s Front 15 (…), an individual with a decisive role in the case of the kidnapping of the French journalist Langlois,” José Roberto León, director of the Colombian National Police, told the media. ‘Nury,’ whose real name is Yedmy Sánchez Suárez, “was the one who handled the political and media use of Langlois’s kidnapping. She has a great deal of political experience in directing large groups,” Colonel Carlos Vargas, commander of the Police in the department of Caquetá (in southern Colombia), explained. Sánchez Suárez, who was arrested in Florencia (the capital of Caquetá) following a tip, has been a member of the FARC for over 15 years, during which time she has been part of Fronts 14, 15, and 49, León said. This is the first arrest related to Langlois’s kidnapping, which took place on April 28, during confrontations between rebels of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) and the Colombian Army patrol with which the reporter was traveling. In order to save his life, Langlois surrendered to the guerrilla group, which treated him for a bullet wound in one arm and declared him a “prisoner of war.” Finally, on May 30, the FARC unilaterally turned the journalist over to a humanitarian mission, in which the group demanded that a special envoy of French President François Hollande be included. After being released in a town in the Caquetá jungle, Langlois said that the guerrilla group had wanted to turn him over quickly, but upon seeing the backlash generated by holding him, they decided to use him to “engage in politics.” By Dialogo June 29, 2012
When you go to see the Lady Bulldogs of Batesville play basketball this year, they will certainly have a different look. Before practice started, they were planning on 3 young ladies being in their starting lineup who are now injured with two of them probably out for the year. One tore an ACL, another broke her leg, and the third suffered an injury to her hip which required surgery. But like the old saying goes, “the show must go on”.When this season started, Batesville had 2 freshmen, 2 sophomores, and a junior in their starting lineup. Don’t let this deter you from going to see them play. The young ladies that are playing are very good athletes, but they are very young. This means that they will take their lumps early, but I am sure that Coach Cox and his staff will have them rolling before the season is very far along.Most of this years’ roster is made up of freshmen and sophomores. As any coach would say, “we may not set the world on fire this year, but watch out before these young ladies graduate!” Right now there are no seniors on this year’s team ready to play. In fact, there is only one senior on the team, and she is one of the injured.

The allegations of rape levelled at Neymar have dominated headlines and conversations in BrazilSao Paulo, Brazil | AFP | Police in Brazil probing rape allegations against football superstar Neymar have closed the case due to a lack of evidence, the Sao Paulo attorney general’s office said Monday.The police decision will be sent to prosecutors on Tuesday, who will have 15 days to evaluate the case, a spokeswoman for the attorney general’s office told AFP.A final ruling on the case will be made by a judge.A spokesman for Neymar said he was not able to comment on the police decision. Sao Paulo police are due to hold a news conference on Tuesday.Neymar has vehemently denied allegations he raped a Brazilian woman in a Paris hotel in May.The ugly affair, which has dominated headlines and conversations in the soccer-mad country for weeks, overshadowed Brazil’s preparations for the Copa America.Hosts Brazil went on to win South America’s showcase tournament earlier this month without their biggest player, who was injured in a warm-up friendly before the opening match.The scandal blew up on June 2 when Neymar published a seven-minute video on Instagram, where he had first been in contact with Najila Trindade, revealing that he had been accused of rape.In an attempt to defend himself against the allegations, Neymar’s video was accompanied by WhatsApp messages and images of his encounter with Trindade — without her consent, possibly breaking Brazilian law.– Police questioning –The drama quickly snowballed. Extracts of a televised interview with Trindade, in which she accused Neymar of “aggression together with rape,” aired just one hour before he was about to enter the pitch for the pre-Copa game between Brazil and Qatar. Neymar tore his right ankle ligament in the 20th minute, ruling him out of the tournament.In the following weeks, Neymar was questioned by police over the WhatsApp messages.He also appeared before police in Sao Paulo, where Trindade had filed her complaint at the end of May.As the case dragged on, police filed a defamation suit against Trindade — who was dropped by multiple lawyers — after she insinuated the force was corrupt.“The police are bought, aren’t they? Or am I crazy?” she told television channel SBT last month in response to questions over the police investigation of an alleged theft of a tablet device from her home that contained a short video she claims has conclusive evidence she was assaulted.Despite the seriousness of the allegations, polls have shown that most Brazilians believe Neymar is innocent.Controversy has followed the Paris Saint-Germain player, who flew back to France earlier this month.Neymar, who joined PSG in 2017, has made clear he wants to return to Barcelona.He has yet to feature during PSG’s pre-season tour in Asia and French media reported he will miss Tuesday’s game against Sydney in China.Share on: WhatsApp
London, United Kingdom | AFP | Premier League leaders Liverpool could claim a first title for 30 years at Anfield after the initial batch of fixtures of the restart was announced on Friday.Jurgen Klopp’s men, with a commanding 25-point lead at the top of the table, were just two wins away from clinching the title before coronavirus forced the suspension of football in March.Liverpool’s first match back is against Everton on June 21. The Merseyside derby is due to take place at Goodison Park, less than a mile from Anfield, but a venue has not been confirmed by the Premier League.Crystal Palace will then visit Anfield three days later.Wins in both of those matches would guarantee Liverpool’s first English top-flight title since 1990.But if Manchester City lose at home to Arsenal on June 17, the Reds would be champions if they beat Everton.Liverpool City Council’s safety advisory group will meet next week to make a decision on whether the game can go ahead at Goodison or should be moved to a neutral venue.All remaining 92 Premier League games this season will be played behind closed doors, but there are fears that hosting the game in Liverpool could encourage supporters to congregate around stadiums.Palace’s trip to Anfield will kick off at 2015 local time (1915 GMT). Anfield will host Liverpool’s clash with Crystal Palace on June 24 Share on: WhatsApp The only other match that could be moved to a neutral venue from the first three rounds of fixtures is Liverpool’s visit to City on July 2.The mayor of Liverpool, Joe Anderson, voiced fears that “there would be many thousands of people who would turn up outside Anfield” on the day Liverpool’s long wait for a league title was ended.That has been disputed by the club, who said they have engaged with supporters’ groups to make sure social-distancing guidelines are followed.Aston Villa will host Sheffield United in the first match of “Project Restart”, followed by Arsenal’s trip to City on June 17.Manchester United’s visit to Tottenham will spearhead the first full round of matches spread over four days from June 19 to 22.Premier League chief executive Richard Masters said: “We know it won’t be the same without our loyal supporters in stadiums but, together with our broadcast partners, we are able to ensure fans can watch or listen to each match live from home.”“I am delighted we are able to take another positive step towards the season returning in just under two weeks’ time,” he added.
Facebook151Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Adopt-A-PetMeet Snoop Dog! He is a happy, super-smart, one-year-old, German Shepherd/Rottweiler mix who is in search of his own active and loving family. He has lived successfully with another dog and enjoys playing with mellow dogs (with supervision and after proper introduction). Because of his size (87 pounds) and high energy level, children in his home should be older, dog-savvy, and gentle. Snoop Dog enjoys leash-walks (the more the better), playing tether ball, inventing his own tennis ball games, and swimming.Besides being such a cool dude, he is considered handsome by the volunteers here at the shelter. Volunteers say that his chestnut-colored neck hair really sets off his black muzzle and pearly whites. If you are looking for a very nice dog, and can provide him with love, exercise, further training to satisfy his desire for knowledge, good chow, and a fenced yard, then perhaps we should set a “get-to-know” each other date.If you have further questions or would like to schedule an appointment to meet Snoop Dog in person, please contact the adoption team at Shelton Adopt-a-Pet. Emails are the preferred method of communication.Adopt-A-Pet has many great dogs and always need volunteers. To see all our current dogs, visit the Adopt-A-Pet website, our Facebook page or at the shelter on Jensen Road in Shelton. For more information, email [email protected] or call 360-432-3091.
Facebook180Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Westport WineryThis week we were excited to get the text that said, “Your Cabs are kicking a** in Hood River.” This the first time we were invited to participate in the Great Northwest Invitational Wine Competition held at the Columbia Gorge Inn in Hood River, Oregon.Photo courtesy: Westport WineryThe prestigious event offers twenty wine judges the opportunity to invite up to 100 wines each to compete for top honors. That means a win, is a BIG win!We had three 2017 Cabernet Sauvignons represented in this competition. Charterboat Chick, MV Endeavor, and MV Argonaut. All three received double gold medals (unanimous panel decisions).Our Cabernet Sauvignon “program” is one that our director of winemaking Dana Roberts has been nurturing for years. He is convinced that Washington State grows the best Cab Sauv grapes. For Dana, the best way to finish wine from his favorite vineyards is to age it in special French oak barrels. The results of this event proves that his passion is in the right place.To accomplish this feat we are fortunate to partner and collaborate with the top wine grape growers in Washington.Joe Hattrup, who owns both Sugarloaf and Elephant Mountain Vineyards in the Rattlesnake Hills AVA, grew the fruit Dana used to craft MV Endeavor—named after the dive boat Blain built at Westport Shipyard where he met his future wife Kim Irving. We also harvest Malbec, Mouvedre, Grenache, Syrah, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Merlot, and of course, our beloved Cabernet Sauvignon at Hattrup Farms.Charterboat Chick features 52% Cab from Conner-Lee Vineyard in the Columbia Valley AVA and 48% from May’s Discovery Vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills AVA.Photo courtesy: Westport WineryMV Argonaut (named after Blain’s first dive boat on Maui) is made from grapes exclusively grown at Conner-Lee Vineyard.During your next visit to Westport Winery Garden Resort you will see the new tasting room for Ocean’s Daughter Distillery.
