ST JOHN’S, Antigua, (CMC): Director of cricket, Jimmy Adams, has urged players to use the upcoming first class season to stake their claim for a place at the higher level. The four-day season is set to bowl off on October 26 and Adams said the three-month season provided the ideal chance for youth cricketers and fringe players to grab the attention of senior selectors. “It’s an opportunity for the talented players in our game to stake a claim for a place in international matches,” said Adams, who took over from Englishman Richard Pybus in the post earlier this year. “It’s also an opportunity for us to see young players that have just come out of youth cricket and it’s another opportunity for us to showcase the depth of West Indies talent, so I am quite looking forward to the start of this four-day season.” The first class tournament will kick-off the West Indies domestic season, which also includes the Regional Super50 one-day tournament next January and the Caribbean Premier League at the back end of next summer. For the fourth straight year, the season will be played under a home-and-away format, which will again see 10 rounds of matches, a feature Adams said was key to player development. “This tournament is critical to our game in view of its length, since there are return matches. It provides so many opportunities for young players and for some that have been around for a long time to get a lot of matches under their belt,” said the former West Indies captain. “I think it is also good for the selectors to have an opportunity to see more of the players in different conditions, so it will throw up a lot of very, very useful information and give us a better indication about the quality of our players. Cricket West Indies has transformed the first class tournament into a professional franchise set-up from the old territorial format, with players on full contracts and the season extended to include home-and-away fixtures. Under the new stipulations, players can also move between franchises, and are selected out of a draft ahead of each season. This year, the season has been squeezed into three months – wrapping up January 21 – and Adams underscored the importance of player fitness to cope with the demands. Three-time reigning champions Guyana Jaguars will open the defence of their title against Jamaica Scorpions at the Guyana National Stadium, while Barbados Pride host Trinidad and Tobago Red Force at Kensington Oval and Windward Islands Volcanoes and Leeward Islands Hurricanes clash at the National Cricket Stadium in Grenada.

She was so depressed that she spoke of having trashed her house, he said. “She was an actress, was 40 years of age. I’m sorry, that’s sex discrimination, but that’s the way it is,” the witness said. DiMaio, a noted forensic pathologist, said Clarkson had been taking the painkiller Vicodin, which was in her system when she died, along with alcohol. And he said Clarkson had addiction problems which led her to consult a Screen Actors Guild Web site for counseling on drug and alcohol problems. In a note to one of her doctors, he said, she declared “she was at the end of her rope and could not function.” Clarkson was shot to death on Feb. 3, 2003, at Spector’s hilltop Alhambra mansion. She had taken a hostess job at the House of Blues when Spector, now 67, met her and invited her to come home with him for a drink after the club closed. Prosecutors have spent eight weeks focusing on the world of Spector, a legendary record producer who frequently threatened women with guns, according to testimony. The defense changed the focus to Clarkson. The deputy medical examiner who testified for the prosecution concluded that Clarkson’s killing was a homicide and interpreted her writings to show that she was “a hopeful person” and with plans for the future. DiMaio disagreed. He said that many people live with or conquer depression. but, “Most people who commit suicide are depressed.” Numerous law enforcement officers and forensic scientists called by prosecutors were unable to say conclusively that Spector fired the gun that killed Clarkson. DiMaio, the first defense witness, said he was sure Spector did not fire it and Clarkson did. He held his hands in front of his mouth and showed how she would have balanced the gun.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

LOS ANGELES – Lana Clarkson was a depressed, 40-year-old, out-of-work actress fighting health problems and “at the end of her rope,” according to a forensic expert who testified Wednesday that she was a candidate for suicide when she went to Phil Spector’s mansion and wound up dead. Dr. Vincent DiMaio, testifying for Spector’s defense in his murder trial, said he studied Clarkson’s e-mail correspondence, her date book and her medical records in addition to scientific evidence and concluded that she pulled the trigger on the gun that killed her. “She had financial problems. She was afraid of being evicted. In one of the e-mails she said she had no job skills,” DiMaio said. He said the tall, blond beauty who became a cult movie star in the 1985 film “Barbarian Queen” had fallen on hard times. She had broken both her wrists in an accident the year before she died. She had been plagued with persistent headaches that did not respond to drugs and “no one seemed to know where they came from,” he said.

SOUTH WHITTIER – Designers of the new South Whittier Shuttle route hope simplicity will be the key to the service’s success when it makes its debut later this month. The shuttle’s 11-mile route will “go into a lot of residential areas,” making it easy for riders to “walk to the bus stops from their houses,” said John Huang, Los Angeles County Department of Public Works’ programs development division. Huang spoke to residents at a meeting Monday about the new service. Vans will stop at doctor’s offices, shops and parks along the route, he said. Designers also made a point of keeping the route, which runs from the Whittwood Town Center to Sorenson Park in South Whittier, to about 55 minutes, ensuring that shuttle vans arrive at stops once an hour. “This shuttle is exciting news” for the community, which is not covered by any other public transportation system, Whittier County Community Coordinating Council President Ralph Pacheco said. The shuttle will cost 25 cents per ride, or $11 for a monthly pass. The service will accept MTA passes and will connect with MTA buses and trains. Two 18-passenger vans will operate on the line when the service begins, leaving from the South Whittier Community Resource Center for an inaugural ride on Jan. 21. In July the service will receive two new 29-passenger El Dorado EZ-Rider II Max buses, which will be purchased through a grant secured with the help of Rep. Linda Sanchez, R-Lakewood. At a community presentation Monday led by Huang, some residents said they hope the route eventually will be expanded. “It looks like they covered all the parks. Maybe next time they can do the schools,” Whittier resident Nancy Sullivan said. Huang said an expansion would depend on how successful the service becomes. The service would need 20-30 riders per route before officials would consider expanding it, he said. A kickoff celebration for the new shuttle service will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Jan. 21 at the Community Resource Center, 10750 Laurel Ave. People can ride the shuttle for free through the end of this month. The shuttle will run from 8a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 9a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.

THE controversial sermon at All Saints Episcopal Church in Pasadena shortly before the 2004 election was clearly intended to criticize President Bush. So what?The IRS has been investigating the church, claiming it violated its tax-exempt status by engaging in politicking. But that charge doesn’t seem to stick.While outright campaigning for or against politicians would be an obvious violation of the tax code, anything less ought to be fair game in how a church goes about its business.Preachers naturally talk about morality, and morality necessarily figures into every political decision we make — or at least it should. If religious leaders were to be kept from talking about issues such as war, abortion, the minimum wage or marriage just because these subjects also veer into the realm of politics, they wouldn’t be able to do their jobs.And when the IRS gets in the business of deciding which sermons are acceptable and which aren’t, we risk the danger of political targeting and religious harassment. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

It hurts me to talk about it.“I think it’s disgusting, honestly. I really do credit Raheem for coming out and standing up for himself and other players and speaking about it.“But, I just think that if a lot of football clubs and some of the players too can join forces to really put our heads to it and try to kick it out, it would be the best thing possible.”When asked if Sterling going public could be turning point in eradicating racism, the 21-year-old responded: “I hope so.
