Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Injury updatesChone Figgins batted leadoff and played left field for Triple-A Albuquerque on Saturday, his third rehab game in as many days. Figgins played at third base Thursday and second base Friday. He could be cleared to return from his strained left hip flexor at some point this week.“We’ll get through that round (playing three different positions) and see what medical says,” Mattingly said. “They’ll evaluate where he’s at, what else we want him to do and go from there.”Scott Elbert could also be nearing a return after the left-hander pitched Friday and Saturday. It was the second time he’s pitched on back-to-back nights since his rehab began in June.AlsoThe deadline to sign players selected in the June amateur draft passed Friday. The Dodgers signed 33 of their 40 picks, including all of the first 18. … Matt Kemp struck out as a pinch hitter in the eighth inning, replacing Yasiel Puig. He’s 0 for 8 as a pinch hitter in 2014 and 7 for 46 (.152) as a pinch hitter in his career. … Carl Crawford’s RBI was his first since May 26. … Mark Ellis grounded out as a pinch hitter in the eighth inning and is 2 for 16 (.125) against the Dodgers this season. He’s batting .187 in his first season in St. Louis. Paul Maholm pitched admirably in Beckett’s absence, throwing six scoreless innings against the San Diego Padres on July 12. But Maholm seems unlikely to make the start in Pittsburgh on Tuesday, when Beckett’s turn in the rotation comes up next.Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said that Beckett wouldn’t even be on a lower pitch count than usual when he returns.“We’re always watching him,” Mattingly said. “Him and Danny (Haren) are kind of in the same boat. When they get into a certain range, depending on how they got there, the red flags are starting to go off.”Beckett is 6-5 with a 2.26 earned-run average in 17 starts this season, second on the staff to Clayton Kershaw. He’s averaging a little more than six innings per start.“If we have to get him to miss a turn somewhere in there, we’ll do that, but to this point he’s only missed one turn and he’s been pretty good,” Mattingly said. “We’re hoping we can do that again in the second half.” ST. LOUIS – Josh Beckett seems unlikely to miss another start after the right-hander threw a bullpen session Saturday morning at Busch Stadium without pain in his left hip.“I felt like my mechanics were a lot sharper than I was expecting them to be, and the actual feel of the bullpen, also the way my body felt, was better than I thought,” Beckett said.Drew Butera, who caught Beckett in the bullpen, said “that was as clean as I’ve seen him in a while.”Beckett tried to pitch through a left hip impingement until he went on the disabled list July 8. He then received a cortisone injection to relieve the pain. Because of how the Dodgers were able to reset their rotation around the four-day All-Star break, Beckett only missed one start.

Councilman Ron Beilke denied the job description is tailored to ensure Fuentes has a good chance at the city manager’s job. “The position has never required a college degree, going back to Courtemarche’s time,” he said. “We did not dummy down the position. We inherited this.” So far, 13 people have applied for the city manager job. The candidates will be narrowed to three after the Nov. 17 application deadline, said Beilke. Fuentes is not among the applicants, but he would be considered if he applies, added Beilke. “I feel he is highly qualified and I would consider him,” he said. — Debbie Pfeiffer Trunnell can be reached at (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3028, or by e-mail at [email protected] local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Councilman Gregory Salcido echoed that belief. “It looks like a certain consultant has written his own job description,” said Salcido, who opposed Fuentes’ hiring. “The fact that the education requirement has been left out of the flier causes me concern.” Fuentes was hired soon after the council fired longtime City Manager Dennis Courtemarche in May. PICO RIVERA — Wanted: One city manager. Experience: Should have a strong background in government finance and municipal administrative law. Salary: $150,000 a year. Education: No college degree is required. City officials have released job requirements for the vacant city manager’s position, but a paragraph labeled “ideal candidate” makes no mention of a college degree as a prerequisite. The listing does include a sentence saying a master’s degree is “a plus.” That omission instantly prompted critics of the City Council to charge that it was designed to clear the way for the city to hire consultant Chuck Fuentes to the post. Fuentes, who was out of his office and did not return calls, does not list any college degrees on his resume. His experience includes a job as chief of staff for Rep. Grace Napolitano,D-Santa Fe Springs, and serving as chief administrative officer for the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office.
18 July 2014 Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa rolled up his sleeves on Friday to paint one of the rooms of the Mahikeng Provincial Hospital in North West province. Accompanied by Cooperative Governance Minister Pravin Gordhan, Water and Sanitation Minister Nomvula Mokonyane and North West Premier Supra Mahumapelo, Ramaphosa painted a section at the hospital before handing over a machine that effectively treats patients with cataracts. The machine was donated by the private sector. Ramaphosa took his time to speak to patients and visiting relatives who had come to see doctors at the hospital. Armed with a black refuse bags, Ramaphosa and his delegation then led a clean-up campaign at two local taxi ranks in the Mahikeng CBD. The deputy president and ministers chatted to locals and shop owners as locals sang and danced in delight, bringing the city centre to a stop. The visit to the area was part of Mandela Day, the first to be commemorated since the Nelson Mandela passed away in December. On 18 July, Madiba would have turned 96. The United Nations officially declared 18 July as Nelson Mandela International Day in November 2009, recognising Mandela’s “values and his dedication to the service of humanity” and acknowledging his contribution “to the struggle for democracy internationally and the promotion of a culture of peace throughout the world”. Celebrated across the globe in honour of the late statesman’s birthday on 18 July, the day gives everyone the opportunity to emulate Mandela’s role as public servant though volunteering and community service.

Photo by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netAllen Durham unleashed another colossal performance to tow Meralco to an 85-83 Game 4 victory to even up the 2017 PBA Governors’ Cup Finals at two games apiece Friday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.The hulking reinforcement muscled his way down low and scored the marginal undergoal stab off a Reynel Hugnatan assist with 46.6 seconds on the clock to capped off another amazing output of 28 points, 18 rebounds, two assists, two steals, and two blocks.ADVERTISEMENT Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles01:37Protesters burn down Iran consulate in Najaf01:47Panelo casts doubts on Robredo’s drug war ‘discoveries’01:29Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games MOST READ Ginebra fought back from 13-points down in the second half, turning a 63-50 deficit with 3:24 late in the third quarter to a 70-all tie with 7:48 remaining. Old reliables Mark Caguioa and Jayjay Helterbrand turned back the clock and paired up with Brownlee in staging that huge 20-7 blast abridging the final frames to set up the thrilling finish.The Scores:MERALCO 85 – Durham 28, Newsome 18, Hugnatan 14, Amer 11, Hodge 7, Dillinger 2, Caram 2, Faundo 2, Lanete 1, Tolomia 0.GINEBRA 83 – Brownlee 34, Devance 15, Caguioa 8, Aguilar 7, Slaughter 6, Cruz 4, Thompson 4, Ferrer 3, Helterbrand 2, Tenorio 0, Mercado 0.Quarters: 17-17, 41-40, 68-63, 85-83. “As always, it’s beautiful if it works. Our execution down the stretch was pretty good today, except for that last layup of JD (Dillinger). But everything went pretty smoothly,” said coach Norman Black of the game-winning connection between his veteran forward and the two-time Best Import. “The guys really focused in this time on what we did in the huddle as far as instructions were concerned, unlike in Game 2. And we made some big shots and some big plays down the stretch.”The Gin Kings still had numerous cracks at the basket, but Sol Mercado muffed his right wing trey, and Justin Brownlee botched his two attempts in the final 26 seconds off the game, none tougher than a missed one-hander at the buzzer which could have forced overtime.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutMeralco and Ginebra now go to a virtual best-of-three, with the remaining games to be played at Philippine Arena in Bocaue, Bulacan.

He wound up with 11 markers on a 2-of-4shooting from three, on top of three assists and two boards.Black said that Meralco really looked at Game 4 as a must-win. “If we go down 3-1, then it would have been very difficult for us to come back.”But with the two teams now on an even keel, the former Grand Slam-winning mentor can set his sights once again on finishing the “unfinished business” from last season’s campaign.“It’s just a great win for us to tie the series. That basically means we have at least two games in Philippine Arena now. So that should be very exciting. Big win for our program, big win for the series, to come back and tie them after being down 2-0. It’s a morale-booster for us and we really just have to see what we can do about giving our guys a little bit of rest in practice and making sure that we fix what we did wrong tonight and hopefully execute better in the next game,” said Black.Brownlee did all he could for Ginebra, firing 34 points, 14 rebounds, seven assists, and two steals, while Joe Devance got 15 markers, six boards, four dimes, and two steals in the defeat.ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
