Wolfsburg vs VfB Stuttgart: probable teams, match stats and LIVE blog! https://rencontre-latina.com/wolfsburg-vs-vfb-stuttgart-probable-teams-match-stats-and-live-blog/ Fri, 30 Sep 2022 04:32:25 +0000 https://rencontre-latina.com/wolfsburg-vs-vfb-stuttgart-probable-teams-match-stats-and-live-blog/

Wolfsburg are set to claim their first home win of the season when they take on winless VfB Stuttgart and new signing Dan-Axel Zagadou on Saturday (kick-off: 3.30pm CEST).

Click here for the Wolfsburg vs Stuttgart LIVE blog!

Wolfsburg striker Lukas Nmecha has scored three of his side’s five league goals so far but will play no role after leaving the German side early with a knee complaint. Former Stuttgart striker Omar Marmoush could lead the line for him as Wolves look to recover from a 2-0 loss to Bundesliga leaders Union Berlin before the international break. He could certainly be content to smash his Bundesliga duck for the campaign, as Niko Kovac’s side have picked up just five points from seven appearances so far. Austrian striker Patrick Wimmer has received another blow in training and it’s a doubt, but Denmark’s Jonas Wind could still come back in the running. Out of favor with Kovac, Max Kruse now has an injury which should keep him out for several weeks.

Stuttgart signed free agent Zagadou in mid-September, and the former Borussia Dortmund defender played 60 minutes in a friendly against Swiss side Grasshopper last week. Pellegrino Matarazzo has been cautious about Zagadou’s chances of featuring this weekend, but the American coach will be happy to have a little more help. Stuttgart’s 3-1 loss to Eintracht Frankfurt was just their second of the campaign, but it means they are one of only two sides – along with bottom club Bochum – yet to have won. With the visitors only ahead of Wolfsburg on goal difference, they will be hoping left-back Borna Sosa will shake off the fever to start. He hasn’t trained this week, after scoring a goal against Denmark that helped Croatia qualify for the UEFA Nations League finals.

Look: Stuttgart enjoyed their last trip to Wolfsburg

Match statistics

  • All three Nmecha goals in the Bundesliga this season have come at home.
  • Kovac has won three of his four meetings with Stuttgart as a coach, losing the other.
  • Wolves are winless in four home Bundesliga games since April 22 (5-0 against Mainz).
  • Marmoush scored three goals in 21 competitive games for Stuttgart last season. He has one in eight for Wolfsburg in 2022/23.
  • Stuttgart won last season’s corresponding game 2-0 in December. It was their first win at Wolfsburg since 2005 (13 matches).
  • The visitors have been involved in five league-leading draws.

Newsom signs abortion protections into law https://rencontre-latina.com/newsom-signs-abortion-protections-into-law/ Tue, 27 Sep 2022 21:54:00 +0000 https://rencontre-latina.com/newsom-signs-abortion-protections-into-law/

California Governor Gavin Newsom on Tuesday signed a package of 12 bills into law, establishing some of the strongest abortion protections in the country — a direct response to the US Supreme Court’s decision to void federal abortion safeguards earlier this year.

Collectively, the new laws aim to improve access and protect patients and clinicians by strengthening confidentiality safeguards, ensuring providers and patients cannot be sued or sued, and funding procedures and travel costs. for low income people. They also seek to strengthen the network of abortion clinics in the state as more and more patients from states where abortion is now strictly restricted or banned are seeking procedures in California.

Newsom first announced the signing privately to stakeholders, and Jodi Hicks, CEO of Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California, said many in the virtual room were emotional.

“It’s been a long year of hard work,” Hicks said. “You could see a lot of emotion and pride.”

The package was supported by the California Council on the Future of Abortiona 46-member coalition of reproductive rights and health and justice groups convened by Newsom in 2021 to identify abortion defects and recommend policy solutions.

“It’s certainly by design that we’re leading this effort and supporting our values,” Hicks said.

Without the council’s work throughout the legislative session, lawmakers would not have been able to respond so quickly to the Supreme Court’s decision, Hicks said. Many bills included amendments reacting to bans and restrictions announced in other states.

“My whole generation lived with Roe v. Wade being the law of the land, so it’s not like we have a map of how to navigate a system without those protections,” Hicks said. “It really took everyone coming together to craft this collection of bills to become a state of reproductive freedom and a beacon of hope.”

This week, an Arizona judge reinstated a almost total ban on abortion dating back to 1864, and abortion clinics in Southern California are already prepare for an influx of patients.

newsom vetoed an invoice in the package last week, citing “lower-than-expected revenue” and the need for fiscal responsibility. This bill would have required the state to fund pilot reproductive health programs in five counties.

Although fiercely opposed by a minority of religious groups and conservatives, the measures crossed Democratic supermajorities in both houses of the legislature.

Voters will decide in November whether to add a state constitutional amendment protecting the right to obtain an abortion.

newsom has made abortion a central part of its re-election campaign, drawing on California’s reputation as a reproductive health “safe haven” in its frequent attacks on other states’ politics. Likewise, many seat-fighting Democrats jumped on abortion as the definition problem upcoming national and mid-term elections. In June, Newsom approved a budget investing more than $200 million in reproductive health services.

The most controversial pieces of legislation were AB 2223by Democratic Assemblywoman Buffy Wicks of Oakland, and SB 1142by Democratic Senators Anna Caballero of Merced and Nancy Skinner of Berkeley.

Wicks’ measure abolishes the requirement for coroners to investigate stillbirths and bars the prosecution of anyone who terminates a pregnancy even if the abortion is self-induced or occurs outside of the medical system. Protesters in front of the Capitol and conservative lawmakers claimed the legislation would legalize infaticide, which Wicks called “misinformation”.

Caballero and Skinner’s measure introduced the $20 million Abortion Convenience Support Fund to help women pay for travel, accommodation and other expenses that advocates say create barriers to abortion. access. Although the money was guaranteed in the state budget, Newsom has limited its use to California residentsa movement of abortion advocates rallied hard to knock down in the last days of the legislative session. Last-minute amendments to the health omnibus budget bill allow out-of-state residents to receive grants from the fund.

Caballero and Skinner’s measure also required the state to create a abortion information site detailing state laws and resources, which Newsom launched two weeks before the bill was signed.

Other measures in the package allow nurse practitioners to perform certain abortion procedures without the supervision of a physician; providing loans and bursaries to clinicians-in-training who are committed to providing reproductive health care in underserved areas; and prohibit California-based law enforcement, medical providers and technology companies from cooperating with law enforcement in states where abortion is criminalized.

Although California does not collect comprehensive data on abortionapproximately 154,000 abortions were performed in 2020, according to the Guttmacher Institutea national reproductive rights think tank that periodically surveys abortion providers.

Guttmacher believes California has become the closest abortion provider to 1.3 million women of reproductive age while other states institute bans. More conservative estimates suggest between 8,000 and 16,100 more women will flock to California for abortions, according to UCLA’s Center on Law, Reproductive Health, and Policy.

Are Jacksonville Jaguars, Trevor Lawrence finding their groove? – Jacksonville Jaguars Blog https://rencontre-latina.com/are-jacksonville-jaguars-trevor-lawrence-finding-their-groove-jacksonville-jaguars-blog/ Tue, 27 Sep 2022 10:04:38 +0000 https://rencontre-latina.com/are-jacksonville-jaguars-trevor-lawrence-finding-their-groove-jacksonville-jaguars-blog/

INGLEWOOD, Calif. — It has been 1,015 days since the Jacksonville Jaguars won a road game, a nearly three-year streak that ended Sunday with their 38-10 rout of the Los Angeles Chargers at SoFi Stadium.

The win matters for more reasons than just breaking a losing streak that dates back to a win over the Oakland Raiders on Dec. 5, 2019, in the last game played at Oakland Coliseum.

The Jaguars, who have won just four games combined the past two seasons, are starting to look like a team that could be in the hunt for the playoffs come December. With a 2-1 record, they currently lead the AFC South – a division that looks shaky at best.

“That’s it for this team,” head coach Doug Pederson said of the franchise’s fourth win in 19 games played in the Pacific Time Zone. “And that’s exactly what the guys were talking about, the guys who came here. It’s nice to get a road win against a great football team. Traveling across the country like that, it’s an honor for the guys in the locker room to have done that.

“I hope this is the start of things to come and [they are] is going in the right direction. »

That may seem a bit premature, as the season is only three weeks away and the Jaguars blew an eight-point fourth-quarter lead in a season opener loss to the Washington Commanders. But it’s the way the Jaguars have won the past two weeks that shows they could be for real.

The Jaguars passed the Chargers by more than 100 yards, Lawrence threw for 262 yards and three touchdowns, James Robinson rushed for 100 yards and a touchdown, rookie Devin Lloyd intercepted his second pass in as many weeks and Dawuane Smoot forced a fumble which Foye Oluokun recovered.

More than the stats, though, it’s this: The Jaguars failed to return the ball, committed just two penalties and went on a 22-0 run after the Chargers kicked a field goal to reduce the lead the Jaguars to nine points at the start of the third quarter. It was the second week in a row that the team closed out a victory with a dominant second half.

The team seems to be coming together.

Lawrence has arguably been the best quarterback in the league for the past two weeks. His total QBR of 84.6 is second only to Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (87.0) and he leads the league in completion percentage (76.8%). He threw five touchdown passes and no interceptions in the Colts and Chargers routs – and it’s the second and third highest-rated games of his career.

In three weeks, he is sixth in the NFL in total QBR (72.9) and seventh in completion percentage (69.4). Above all, he does not return the ball (a single interception).

“Guys are doing a great job up front with protection,” Pederson said. “Guys are opening up and we had chances to take shots and complemented them on the field. There were opportunities [for explosive plays] and we hit them, and we were effective in the passing game. That’s all we can ask of our guys. It takes 11 [players] do it, but [Lawrence] was very efficient, very precise.

And the Jaguars haven’t made the kinds of mistakes that have characterized the franchise in recent seasons. They’re the NFL’s best plus seven in turnover margin (they were the NFL’s worst minus 20 last season), have just five penalties in the last two games (they’ve had 13 in of the first game and averaging seven per game last season), and converting 47% of their third downs in the past two weeks.

“We played a full game,” Lawrence said. “Stacking two weeks in a row is important for us.”

Going three weeks in a row would really be an indication that the Jaguars are for real, as it would mean beating the Philadelphia Eagles on the road. Along with the subplot of Pederson’s return to the city that he led to a Super Bowl title, there’s the fact that the Eagles (3-0) are probably the best team in the NFC and potentially the NFL.

The Jaguars have lost their last 18 games against NFC opponents since a win over the New York Giants in the 2018 season opener. Breaking that streak would have the rest of the NFL talking.

“I think the way we played, you can’t deny we’re a really good team,” Lawrence said. “But in the end, it doesn’t matter what it says about us. We know who we are. Our only goal on Sunday is to go and win the game, and it doesn’t really matter what other people think. Each week, we will prepare in the same way. We will be ready to play. »

Amazing Race 34 Recap – Premiere Live Blog https://rencontre-latina.com/amazing-race-34-recap-premiere-live-blog/ Thu, 22 Sep 2022 01:58:15 +0000 https://rencontre-latina.com/amazing-race-34-recap-premiere-live-blog/

The season premiere of The Amazing Race 34 airs tonight on CBS. Read a live recap here.

The episode begins in Munich, Germany at Nymphenburg Palace. Twelve new teams are ready to start the race. We meet some of them now. Luis and Michelle are a married couple from Miami. Derek and Claire met on Big brother last year and are now a couple. Tim & Rex are golf buddies. Rex is a former Buffalo Bills and New York Jets football coach. Will and Abby are childhood sweethearts who dreamed of being on Fantastic race. Quinton and Mattie are best friends and former NFL cheerleaders. Emily and Molly are long lost twin sisters who met a year ago. Linton & Sharik are a Jamaican father/daughter duo.

Phil gives them some information on the twists and turns of this season. He informs them that this stage will have a Scramble. This means that they can complete the tasks in any order they choose. He also reveals that there will be no matches without elimination this season. If they come in last place, they will be eliminated from the race. For this first stage, they will drive themselves in one of the parked cars made available.

The race begins and all teams sprint to their bags and cars. They open their clues and learn what to do. They must roll a barrel of beer through an obstacle course in Luitpold Park, saw a log in Biergarten Seehaus and smash a huge block of ice in Augustiner-Keller Biergarten. After completing all three tasks, they will have the clue to get to the Pit Stop. Teams receive instructions and proceed to their first chosen task. Aashta and Nina take too long to get together and are the last team to leave. We get to know some of the other teams. Aashta and Nina are engaged after meeting on a dating app. Marcus and Michael are brothers in the military. Rich & Dom are married motivational speakers.

Marcus and Michael are the first to arrive at the Roll task. They fail on their first attempt and have to try again. Rich & Dom are the first to arrive at the Saw task. Marcus and Michael succeed on their second attempt. We also get to know Aubrey & David. They are ballroom dancers. They arrive at the Roll task at the same time as Derek & Claire and Will & Abby. Derek and Claire pass their first try. The other two teams must try again.

Emily and Molly arrive at the Smash task. It’s a roadblock. Molly chooses to do the task. Luis and Michelle also arrive, with Luis performing the task. They must chisel the ice until they reach the clue inside. Luis finishes it very quickly. Quinton & Mattie and Glenda & Lumumba are also coming. Molly also performs the task. As they go to their next task, Tim & Rex and Aashta & Nina are lost and haven’t started their first task yet.

Linton & Sharik arrive at the Saw task, and they complete the task faster than Rich & Dom. Dom is frustrated, but she tries to stay calm. Meanwhile, Aubrey & David and Will & Abby complete the Roll task. They head to the Saw task.

Quinton and Glenda complete the Smash Roadblock as Aashta & Nina and Tim & Rex finally arrive. Nina and Tim choose to do the Roadblock. We meet Glenda & Lumumba, a married couple with a big height difference. Nina and Tim finish the roadblock fairly quickly and can move on to their next task.

Linton and Sharik are the first to complete the Saw task, but Rich and Dom complete it soon after. After they leave, Derek and Claire begin the Saw task as Marcus and Michael arrive at the Smash Roadblock. Meanwhile, Glenda & Lumumba and Quinton & Mattie arrive at the Roll task. All teams perform their tasks without any problems.

Emily and Molly then complete the Roll task, and Saw is the only task left for them. Marcus and Michael only have Saw to finish, but they get lost along the way. Aubrey and David also get lost on their way to their next task.

Luis and Michelle, Aashta and Nina, Will and Abby, and Glenda and Lumumba arrive at the Saw task. While working on it, Linton and Sharik complete the Roll task. After Will and Abby complete the task, Aubrey and David and Quinton and Mattie arrive at the Roll task. Meanwhile, Derek completes the Smash Roadblock. Derek and Claire have now completed all three tasks. They can now go to the Pit Stop: Friedensengel. They need to find a monument that translates to Angel of Peace.

Rich & Dom and Tim & Rex are working on the Roll task. Tim and Rex finish it on their first attempt, but Rich and Dom have to try again. Meanwhile, Marcus and Michael get lost again on their way to their next task. Rich & Dom finally complete the Roll task after three attempts. Marcus and Michael finally arrive at Task Saw as Linton works on the Smash Roadblock for his team.

Derek and Claire arrive at the Pit Stop. Phil tells them the good news. Derek and Claire are team #1! They each earn $2,500. Glenda and Lumumba have completed the Saw task and later arrive as Team #2.

Aashta and Nina struggle with the Roll task while Tim and Rex complete the Saw task. Emily and Molly arrive at Task Saw while Luis and Michaelle arrive at Task Roll. Luis and Michelle complete the task, but Aashta and Nina are still in trouble. Meanwhile, Quinton and Mattie arrive at the Pit Stop as Team #3.

We see the rest of the teams working to complete their tasks, but Aashta and Nina haven’t completed the Roll task yet. It takes them five attempts to finally erase it. They are currently in eleventh place with Aubrey and David in last place after David cleared the Smash Roadblock. It’s a mad dash to the Pit Stop for the rest of the teams.

Linton & Sharik and Emily & Molly arrive at the Pit Stop as Team #4 and Team #5 respectively. Marcus & Michael and Tim & Rex arrive together next, and they are followed by Will & Abby. Rich & Dom join them as team #9. Later, Luis and Michelle arrive as Team #10.

It’s now between Aashta & Nina and Aubrey & David. One of these teams will be eliminated. Aubrey and David welcome Phil to team #11. They are prepared for bad news, but they see Aashta and Nina running away. They know they’re still in the running as the #11 team. Aashta and Nina finally arrive and Phil tells them the bad news. Aashta & Nina were eliminated from the race. They say they have no regrets and had a great time. Nina calls Aashta the light of her life. Aashta says they will laugh about it all their life.

Stage Summary

1st place: Derek and Claire

2nd place: Glenda & Lumumba

3rd place: Quinton & Mattie

4th place: Linton & Sharik

5th place: Emily & Molly

6th place: Marcus and Michael

WEATHER BLOG: When does the first autumn cold front arrive in Corpus Christi? https://rencontre-latina.com/weather-blog-when-does-the-first-autumn-cold-front-arrive-in-corpus-christi/ Tue, 20 Sep 2022 20:03:00 +0000 https://rencontre-latina.com/weather-blog-when-does-the-first-autumn-cold-front-arrive-in-corpus-christi/ Late summer and early fall bring strong anticipation for relief from the summer heat of S TX. Here’s a look at how cooler temperatures come in the fall

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — It’s a popular question that comes from a long, hot summer in South Texas — “When is the first fall cold front coming?” Cold fronts are one of those things where “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. This means that a cold front can happen, but is it cold enough for a particular person’s taste? NOTE: there is no “cool” faceplate 🙂

Instead of talking about when the first cold front crosses the Coastal Bend on average, let’s look at when certain temperature thresholds are reached. I broke down when the temperature drops below 70, 65, 60, 55, and 50 for the first time at any time of the day (usually not the afternoon highs). I then broke the data down into historical averages going back to the 1800s, the 30-year average (1991-2020), and last year (2021).

September is a month that usually brings the first post-summer temperature reading below 70°. For me, this is remarkable because it often stays above 70° all summer in Corpus Christi. For example, this year, it has not been below 70° at any time of the day since May 26. On average, mid-September brings temperatures below 70°, usually due to a less humid atmosphere, not necessarily a cold front. It hasn’t happened yet in 2022.

In late September and into October the fronts get a bit stronger and temperatures (usually overnight) will hit the mid 60’s. That doesn’t mean EVERY night will get there, these are just dates when the first time a temperature reading is below a threshold occurs.

During mid to late October/early November, temperatures can periodically hit the 50s or even the 40s overnight. Colder air filters further south as the days get shorter and the Earth’s axial tilt moves away from the sun in the northern hemisphere during winter, which means less direct sunlight and for shorter duration each day.

CURRENT FORECAST (SEPTEMBER 20) – A weak cold front will likely cross southern Texas early next week (September 26/27). Although not strong, it could keep daytime temperatures below 90 and overnight drop into the 60s by the middle of next week. A step in the right direction if you’re looking for relief from the summer heat; at least for a short time. It won’t be a cold front that makes the jackets stand out…not even close.

With nine consecutive losses, do the Panthers become eternal losers? – Carolina Panthers Blog https://rencontre-latina.com/with-nine-consecutive-losses-do-the-panthers-become-eternal-losers-carolina-panthers-blog/ Sun, 18 Sep 2022 07:00:00 +0000 https://rencontre-latina.com/with-nine-consecutive-losses-do-the-panthers-become-eternal-losers-carolina-panthers-blog/

CHARLOTTE, NC — There were no chicken wing giveaways at the dd Peckers Wing Shack on Tuesday.

Carolina Panthers coach Matt Rhule was not fired after losing to the New York Giants on Sunday.

But restaurant owner Justin Holland would have gladly fulfilled his free wings offer on social media (which could have cost him well over $10,000) if Rhule had been fired at 5 p.m. Monday.

It’s an example of how dire the situation is for the Panthers after an 0-2 start that extended their losing streak to nine in a row, the longest in the NFL and one short of the second-longest run in team history, ahead of Sunday’s home game against the New Orleans Saints (1 p.m. ET, Fox)

Holland blames Rhule, whose record is 10-25 overall and 4-13 at home since taking over as head coach in 2020, although owner David Tepper does not indicate a change is imminent.

“I got hacked,” said Holland, who started the promotion after Sunday’s 19-16 loss to the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium. “I had enough of it.”

Former Saints coach Jim Mora understands the frustration.

He took over a New Orleans team in 1986 that was the most inept in the NFL with 19 straight seasons without a win.

He arrived six seasons away from New Orleans radio personality Buddy Dilberto, first putting a brown paper bag over his head with the word “Aints” scrawled across the front during their 1-15 season 1980.

Saints fans quickly followed suit, and the fad spread to other markets and other sports with perennial losers.

“They were so hungry for a winner,” recalled Mora, who delivered a winning record in his second season.

Fans aren’t putting bags over their heads in Charlotte, but frustration is mounting from longtime supporters such as Holland, 50, who has been overwhelmed by the response to his promotion.

They fear Carolina will become a laughing stock.

“I try to support them,” Holland said. “I hang my flag every Sunday, but losers get old.”

The Panthers haven’t won at home in more than a calendar year, dating back to last season against New Orleans on Sept. 19. Such streaks often get coaches fired.

According to ELIAS, Carolina is the 12th team in the last 10 seasons to go a full year without a win at home. Among the others – Atlanta Falcons, Cleveland Browns (twice), Dallas Cowboys, Detroit Lions (twice), Jacksonville Jaguars, New York Jets, Las Vegas Raiders, San Francisco 49ers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Tennessee Titans and Washington Commanders – all except Dallas and Cleveland have had at least four different coaches in that span.

Only the Giants (21-46), Lions (18-47-2), Jets (18-49) and Jaguars (16-51) have a worse record than Carolina since 2018.

So the Panthers, who haven’t had a winning record since 2017, look set to become an eternal loser.

Rhule, in the third year of a seven-year, $62 million contract, disagrees.

“Any thought of ‘There’s a loser mentality in this building’ is a lie,” he said. “Because if you’re in this building, you want to win.”

Panthers players who have been with other perennial losers don’t feel Carolina has reached the point of being listed with those other teams. Former New York Jets catcher Robbie Anderson said Rhule was not the reason for the slip-up.

“I’m playing this game for Coach Rhule,” said Anderson, who was part of the Temple team that Rhule returned to in his third season. “He receives a lot of criticism. It is not him. For me, knowing what we know as a team, he tells us what we need to do.

Panthers players and coaches think they’re about to turn things around and get the fans involved.

“Really, I don’t mind. I’ve faced boos in the past,” quarterback Baker Mayfield said. “We would like our fan base to help us with the energy. At the end of the day, if we perform, they are going to be loud for us. ”

Although Rhule didn’t allow the Panthers to break their losing streak, both losses this season have been close games, with field goals 58 and 56 yards in the fourth quarter, the first time this has happened. for consecutive weeks in NFL history.

“I just wanna make sure to say we’re close [to winning]” Rhule said on Sunday. “I believe in it with all my heart.”

Rhule explained Wednesday that he said “close” because “as a head coach you are responsible for the guys, their mindset and their psyche,” not as an excuse.

“Make no mistake, when we walk in here on Monday, there’s no, like, ‘Hey, it’s okay guys,'” Rhule added. “There are a lot of angry people here who are dying to win. …It’s a tough place to live. It’s a frustrating place.

“But at the same time, we’re, ‘We’re here.’ You have to fight to get out of it.”

Mora understands, but he would advise Rhule not to use the word “close” publicly. His 49ers speech summed up what closeness means to him.

“We’re close, and close doesn’t mean s—” he said. “And you can put that on TV for me.”

Cornerback Donte Jackson says players need to be smart and look past the “stories” of fans.

“Nothing they say or do will affect us here,” he said.

Safety Juston Burris played for the Jets and Browns, and so far he doesn’t resent the losing culture he experienced with those teams.

“With maturity, you learn to block out outside noise,” he said. “Once we start winning again, these people will come back.”

Anderson agreed.

“People like to find someone to blame for things,” he said. “[Rhule’s] at the top of the graph. It’s just what comes with his position and his job. Knowing what we know, he does what he has to do.

“…From our point of view, we are here.”

Holland hopes so. He wants to believe victory will come back like it was in 2015 when the Panthers had a 15-1 regular season record in the NFL and reached the Super Bowl.

But on Sunday, he was so frustrated that his emotions spilled onto Twitter and Facebook.

“To me, it looked like they needed a change, so I threw in my two cents,” he said.

The response on Twitter alone to a site that has 926 followers was 5,877 likes and 280 comments.

Holland can’t imagine what fans will say if Carolina loses on Sunday, tying the Panthers’ 10-game losing streak in 2019-20, five shy of the 15 straight to end the 2001 season.

“I usually get four likes,” Holland said. “So believe me, I’m not alone.”

West Seattle Blog… | Police, party, parks, more @ Admiral Neighborhood Association https://rencontre-latina.com/west-seattle-blog-police-party-parks-more-admiral-neighborhood-association/ Thu, 15 Sep 2022 06:58:00 +0000 https://rencontre-latina.com/west-seattle-blog-police-party-parks-more-admiral-neighborhood-association/

Want to connect with neighbors, businesses, other people at Admiral? The Admiral’s Quarter Association hopes to help and holds general meetings every two months these days to talk about it. Here’s what happened when the ANA invited anyone interested to grab a chair on Tuesday night:

ANA Vice President Joanie Jacobs moderated the meeting Admiral’s Congregational Church. As she said as she welcomed the dozen attendees, “We’re all here because we care about the Admiral Quarter.”

Here are the highlights of what they talked about:

ADMIRAL JUNCTION FUNCTION: It’s been almost three weeks since that first street party. In an open discussion, one participant described it as a “good start”, suggesting that in the future more preparation time could be planned for businesses. The relatively last-minute planning was due to the grant that helped fund the party not being received very far in advance, Jacobs noted. She praised the companies that sponsored the entertainment. Bebop Waffle Shop owner Corina Luckenbach hailed the “great energy”. Jacobs said people who stopped by the ANA booth were happy to have something in their neighborhood. Another resident was happy to see “full to bursting” restaurants.

SOUTHWEST SECTOR POLICE: Lt. mike watson, second shift supervisor (day shift), was there. Nothing major is happening, he said. What are the main reasons for appeals in this area? he was asked. Car stalkers, auto thefts – he had a citywide stat on the latter, 483 all last year, 708 so far this year. What can people do? “Don’t leave any valuables in your car…have the steering wheel locked…send the police a video of any suspicious people you see on your home security video.” Please report everything, he urged – “we are a data-driven department”. A resident mentioned a chronic shoplifter he encounters frequently at a local store. “I’m sure he’s been arrested several times,” the lieutenant suggested. “He did,” said the participant. “There are several components to the justice system,” the lieutenant noted. In the back and forth that followed, the resident mentioned a recent encounter with the chronic shoplifter, but had not called the police. “Why not?” asked the lieutenant. “What’s the point? He’s gone.” The lieutenant resolutely insisted that reports be filed. Another resident mentions speed issues. “Did you ask SDOT for traffic calming bumps?” Yes, they worked with the city – and they are trying to organize themselves again. They also hope to get light in the area. After a discussion on road safety, Lt. Watson shared more crime statistics, city-wide – all major types, including property crime, are up double digits. Asked about staffing, he noted that the department had lost “about 400 officers.” He had no details about the southwest quarter. And morale? “We’ve been beaten a lot… (but) we’re hanging on.” What are the main types of incidents for which you have been called and for which you should not be? The lieutenant declined to answer that question directly, but offered some advice: “Even the most mundane (incident) can turn violent… give us a call.” One participant spoke of a person who appeared to be overdosing; SFD and SPD were called and the person said they didn’t want help. In that case, said Lt. Watson, they have no choice but to back down. Someone else mentioned a person who was shot in the neighborhood in an abandoned car that the police had been told about. If someone lives in his car, the lieutenant noted, there’s nothing he can do about it.

INACCESSIBILITY TO HIAWATHA: ANA couldn’t have summer concerts or even an outdoor movie at Hiawatha Community Center Park this summer, I was told that there would be work in progress… but there was none. Parks declined to send a guest to this meeting but sent information via email. The Official Timeline: Two projects remain slated for Hiawatha, the Community Center Stabilization Project – “They’re still waiting for a FEMA grant” – hoping to get grant approval in late September, would then proceed with the appeal of tenders, the works having to be carried out in winter. (In June, Parks told us they expected grant approval to be “shortly.”) Hiawatha Playground Renovation/Relocation – got approval in late July, hoping to bid this fall, build in winter. Next year they will have a backup plan if the Hiawatha projects are further delayed – probably Hamilton Viewpoint.

THE FUTURE OF ADMIRAL CHURCH: Anita Shaffer from the church board said they were continuing the conversation and had no new information to share – just that progress was being made. There was a poll Rev. Andrew Conley Holcom summarized some of the original conversations from four years ago. Planning dropped as COVID – then came focus on land trust; they talk with Farm CLT on viability. “Our congregation is really committed to staying in this neighborhood” rather than selling for the “large sums of money” the site would likely bring, Reverend Conley-Holcom said. He recapped the kind of affordable housing that largely goes unbuilt – 65-85% of the AMI. Something that fits into the neighborhood, as the pastor said. The church has been here since 1899 – “we want to remain part of this neighborhood, not outside of it.” They will have more community conversations when there is something more to discuss.

EVENTS TO COME: The Admiral’s District round or treat is scheduled for Oct. 31 from 3-6 p.m. this year…The next ANA meeting will be at 7 p.m. on Nov. 15…A “Beer Run of 0, 5K”, a sort of pub crawl, is being prepared for the start of next year. .
