The BCB stands behind each of its players, and wishes them great success.The BCB has also expresses great concern that the highly talented Jonathan Foo seems to have fallen off the radar of the Guyana selectors. Foo is a natural talent who deserves a chance to showcase his ability, the BCB has said.He continues to perform well, and a talent such as his should not be neglected, but encouraged.

Macron Stadium Sky Bet Championship club Bolton have confirmed they have been served with a winding-up petition from HM Revenue and Customs over an unpaid tax bill.Wanderers’ alarming financial crisis has deteriorated rapidly over the past few weeks after it was revealed they had failed to pay their players for November, and now HMRC has rejected requests from them to be given more time to conclude a sale.Bolton had hoped they could conclude a takeover this week after drafting in financial advisor Trevor Birch to help long-time owner Eddie Davies, who is willing to wipe out £185million of loans owed to him, sell the club.However, with discussions still ongoing, HMRC has now acted to call in unpaid PAYE and VAT for the month of November.It raises the possibility of administration for Neil Lennon’s bottom-of-the-table side, who would have their entire total wiped out if they were to incur the 12-point deduction.A statement on the club’s official website read: “Bolton Wanderers can confirm that the club has now received a winding-up petition from HMRC in respect of unpaid PAYE and VAT for the month of November.“Despite requests from the club to HMRC to give it further time to either conclude a sale or raise additional funds, HMRC has proceeded with due process and duly served a petition.”Birch added: “Quite clearly the club remains in a critical financial position.“We will continue to try and finalise a sale or alternatively raise some short-term funds needed to give the club a breathing space and time in which to consider its options.” 1
Abraham Lincoln called upon “the better angels of our nature.” Theodore Roosevelt inspired us to be “the man in the arena.” FDR cautioned us, “We have nothing to fear but fear itself.” Soaring words that have echoed throughout the annals of American history. But move over, MLK, you might have “had a dream,” but you’ve got nothing on Los Angeles City Councilman Jose Huizar, who will keep the boys at Bartlett’s busy with his soon to be immortal words, “What about El Pollo Loco?” “Give me liberty or give me death!” “Remember the Alamo!” “What about El Pollo Loco?” “Would El Pollo Loco be included?” he continued. Stunned, the committee, Perry included, sat frozen like a low-carb, zero-trans-fat Jenny Craig entr e. “You can’t get healthier food than grilled chicken with the skin off,” continued Huizar, demonstrating not only a mastery of parliamentary rhetoric, but a commanding grasp of the El Pollo Loco menu. “It’s like he was a shift-supervisor or maybe even an assistant manager,” said a former El Pollo Loco assistant manager who accidentally walked into the meeting while looking for Laura Chick’s office. I know what you’re thinking. “Damn! The one night I didn’t go to the Planning and Land Use Committee meeting!” Don’t cry on my pillow. With Jose Huizar the magic just happens. Which is not to short-change Councilwoman Perry. Girlfriend should get her due. Let’s examine Perry’s quote of note: “We have a serious problem in my district with fast-food restaurants and the increasing level of obesity and diabetes.” Now, if we made this a fill-in-the-blank contest and asked Perry’s constituents to complete the sentence: “We have a serious problem in my district with __________.” How many folks do you suppose would answer, “fast-food restaurants?” I’d be high-balling it at 0percent. Rotten schools, gang murders, teen pregnancy, drug abuse, crummy housing, no jobs, lousy public transportation, did I mention gang murders? Any or all jump to mind as pressing, immediate priorities for the L.A. City Council, but leave it to Perry to tackle the really tough problems lesser leaders might dodge – the Egg McMuffin vs. the Bacon Breakfast Jack. This is just the latest outbreak in an epidemic of nitwit, feckless posturing and legislating by politicians who dare not stick a toe in the waters of what really ails Los Angeles. Jan Perry’s proposed fast-food restaurant ban for South L.A. is the legislative equivalent of junk food. She’s offering up a hollow solution to fight hollow calories. Americans are getting fatter, and diabetes among kids has never been higher. These are real problems. Perry’s solution is fake. It’s just another sugar-coated fix from the lie merchants of Spring Street. In Los Angeles, Burger King ain’t the only one’s serving up whoppers.

It’s more commonly known as “The Whatever Eli Broad and Ron Berkel Want Rubber Stamp Social Club and Chowder Society.” But believe it or not, Los Angeles actually has a committee to oversee planning and land use, which is something to chew on as you circle Art’s Deli for the 38th time looking for a parking space. But we do have a committee, and at its most recent hootenanny Councilwoman Jan Perry – fresh off her triumphant negotiations with the ACLU allowing the homeless to sleep on the sidewalk in front of your house – earned another feather in her Wikipedia biography by convincing the committee to send her fast-food ban to the full council. “We have a serious problem in my district with fast-food restaurants and the increasing level of obesity and diabetes,” said Perry to the committee. And so the stage was set for Councilman Huizar’s moment in the sun. Rising to the challenge, Huizar gathered his thoughts. Those lucky enough to witness the event are conflicted; some claim Jose Huizar shot to his feet, others say he simply shouted from his chair, but all agree on the phrase itself: “What about El Pollo Loco?” A line like that would be enough for most politicians, but Huizar isn’t most politicians. The words came to him as if he was possessed by the spirit of Daniel Webster himself!

DES MOINES, Iowa – The Drake University women’s basketball team hosts its final regular season home game on Sunday afternoon when the Bradley Braves visit the Knapp Center. Tipoff is set for 2 p.m. and following the conclusion of the game Drake will honor its lone senior, Emma Donahue (Naperville, Ill.), on the Knapp Center court. Drake (18-8, 11-4 MVC) snapped a two-game losing streak with a big win over Loyola, 91-61, Friday night as the Bulldogs scored more than 90 points for the sixth time this season. All nine Bulldogs scored at least three points as the team was paced by junior Lizzy Wendell’s (Blue Springs, Mo.) game-high 27 points. Drake handed out 25 assists on 32 field goals, led by junior point guard Caitlin Ingle’s (Runnells, Iowa) game-high seven assists. Sophomore Maddy Dean (Jordan, Minn.) scored 17 points and grabbed eight rebounds. Freshman Sara Rhine (Eldon, Mo.) just missed her second straight double-double with 15 points and eight rebounds in only 18 minutes. Donahue scored five points and matched her career high in rebounds with 10. Sophomore Paige Greiner (Williamsburg, Iowa) added eight points, including a key three-pointer midway through the first quarter that broke a 12-all tie. Greiner’s three along with eight-straight points from Dean was part of an 11-1 closing run to the opening period as the Bulldogs led the rest of the way to the victory. Donahue is the first student-athlete Drake head coach Jennie Baranczyk has coached all four seasons since taking over the Bulldogs in April, 2012. Donahue played limited minutes her first three seasons with zero career starts, but started this year’s opener against Iowa State and has started every game since. This season she ranks second in the MVC in blocks with 50 and blocks average at 1.9 per game and is steadily climbing the career blocks list, currently with 80 to rank sixth all-time in program history. It’s been a special season for Donahue capped with being awarded the MVC State Farm Good Neighbor award earlier this week by the conference office. The award is given each sport season to 10 student-athletes who are in good academic standing and demonstrate good citizenship through sportsmanship and community service. Donahue is an excellent student with a 3.64 GPA in elementary education and is on track to graduate in December after student teaching during the fall semester. Bradley (8-19, 4-12 MVC) lost at UNI Friday night by a score of 65-41. Drake rallied to beat Bradley, 76-64, in Peoria, Ill. on Jan. 29. The Braves are led in scoring by Anneke Schlueter at 9.9 points per game. Drake closes the regular season with a two-game road trip next weekend with games at Evansville on March 3 at 7 p.m. and the season finale at Southern Illinois on March 5 at 2 p.m. Both games will broadcast on The Valley On ESPN3.
