I’m looking at every player and I think Mesut, he has here the respect of every player.”Ozil, who was born in Germany to Turkish-origin parents, said he felt “racism and disrespect” — pointing the finger at German football authorities — in his no-holds-barred statement released over the weekend.The 2014 World Cup-winner said he was unfairly maligned over Germany’s group-stage exit in Russia, after some media highlighted a pre-tournament photo with Turkey’s strongman President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.“I am German when we win, but I am an immigrant when we lose,” Ozil wrote, adding: “Certain German newspapers are using my background and photo with President Erdogan as right-wing propaganda to further their political cause.”Germany’s football federation swiftly denied the allegation of racism, while Erdogan called Ozil to praise his decision — which follows a resurgence of the German far right.Ozil declined to comment on Wednesday as he took part in a training session at a private school in Singapore ahead of Thursday’s friendly against Atletico Madrid.“For him it’s one thing with the national team and another with us,” Emery said.“Normality is the best thing for him and I am sure he’s going to do a big season with us this year… it’s very, very personal and here I want to help him.“Everybody at the club is thinking like me to help him and to feel (good) here and express his quality with us.”Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech also said the players were keen to support Ozil, who smashed the club’s transfer record when he moved from Real Madrid in 2013.“What happened between him and the national team is his private matter so this is not an issue for us,” said Cech.“It’s something which is unfortunate for him but we will try to do everything so that he feels good, that he trains well so he feels good for the season, because he’s one of the key players.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)

But yes, there are areas where we can improve,” he said. “We need to do more to maintain our programs and retain school staff.” Both Elbling, 43, and Aparicio, 28, are middle-school teachers. But for Elbling, his motivation to run for the board is the same as his reason for becoming an educator. “Bottom line: I’m here to make a difference,” said Elbling, who teaches at Corvallis Middle in Norwalk. “I want to make a difference in individual student’s lives, and promote positive things for the cause of education in this district, and all districts in general.” EAST WHITTIER – It’s a race of the challengers at the East Whittier City School District on Nov. 6, when voters go to the polls to decide which two candidates get to serve the next four years on the district’s governing panel. Each of the four candidates – Carlos Aparicio, Michael A. Cirasole, Dimitri C. Elbling and Angel E. Gallardo – has at least a few years of professional experience in public schools under his belt. And with issues like declining enrollment and rising educational standards set by the federal No Child Left Behind Act, all four candidates say their knowledge and skills would be beneficial if elected. Gallardo, 45, a career and technical education coordinator at the Pomona Unified School District, has spent the past 22 years in education, holding titles ranging from teacher to high school principal. Elbling and Gallardo are endorsed by the East Whittier Education Association. Aparicio, who graduated from El Rancho High in Pico Rivera, said education has always been a big priority in his family. “Every child has the ability to succeed and just to move on and better themselves by focusing on education,” he said. “What’s most important, for myself, is that my children come to this district and I want to be involved in their education,” he said. “And working as a teacher has given me skills and experience that I can bring to the school board.” Cirasole, 59, has spent the last 26 years with the Los Angeles County Office of Education, overseeing school budgets to make sure districts remain fiscally sound. “I understand school-district budgets and the consequences of poor planning,” said Cirasole, a 55-year resident of Whittier. “More needs to be done to prevent the funding loss. And I believe having a safe and secure learning environment is the most important thing a school can provide.” firstname.lastname@example.org (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3051 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

A Co Donegal priest has gone on trial in the North on five charges of indecently assaulting a 14-year-old girl.Fr Eugene Boland, 66, originally from Moville denies assaulting the girl from June 1990 to June 1992.He is alleged to have committed the offences in a parochial house in Derry’s Galliagh area where the complainant did voluntary work. The allegations were reported to police in 2010.Prosecuting counsel Russell Connell told the Crown Court in Derry that the alleged indecent assaults involved the defendant rubbing the girl’s waist under her clothes, kissing her on the lips once in a passionate manner and rubbing her leg with his foot under a dining room table.He is also alleged to have asked her if she was having a sexual relationship with her boyfriend and asking her on one occasion if her trousers were buttoned.The prosecution barrister said the complainant later confronted him in the confessional where the defendant is alleged to have told her “despite being a priest we are still men underneath and we still think like men”.The prosecutor said when the complainant wanted to report the matter to a bishop the defendant is alleged to have gone down on his knees and apologised for the hurt he had put her through.Mr Connell said the allegations were reported to the police in April 2010.The defendant, with an address at the parochial house at Killyclougher Road in Omagh, was interviewed at Omagh police station and denied the allegations.When interviewed by Mrs Mary McCafferty, the designated diocesan officer in relation to complaints made against priests – the defendant is alleged to have described himself as a “touchy feely kind of person”.* Comments are closed on this storyMOVILLE PRIEST GOES ON TRIAL ON SEX ABUSE CHARGES was last modified: June 18th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)
LANCASTER – Testimony began Monday in the preliminary hearing for a former security guard charged in the 2000 murder of a Palmdale teenager at a Park and Ride lot he was patrolling. Raymond Lee Jennings, a 32-year-old Iraq war veteran who was arrested about a month after he returned home on leave, is charged in the Feb. 22, 2000, slaying of 18-year-old Michelle O’Keefe. O’Keefe was found shot to death behind the wheel of her blue 2000 Ford Mustang in the Park and Ride lot on Avenue S in Palmdale. Prosecutors said they would present witnesses to describe events leading up to the killing and the aftermath in what they called a “heavily circumstantial case.” In interviews with investigators, Jennings, working for a private security company under contract with the city, has denied killing her. He told investigators he heard gunfire and watched the Mustang roll backward but didn’t see the killer because his view was blocked by a parked van. Jennings said he called a supervisor and waited for her to arrive before approaching the car. Jennings was named in a wrongful-death lawsuit filed in December 2000 by O’Keefe’s parents but was not criminally charged until prosecutors filed the case Nov. 15, about two days before Jennings, a sergeant in the Army National Guard, returned home on leave. He was arrested Dec. 13 when deputies stopped his vehicle on a Lancaster street. Prosecutors in the past declined to file criminal charges, citing insufficient evidence, but said after charges were filed that proceedings in the civil case changed the “character of the evidence.” The gun that killed O’Keefe has never been found. In May 2002, members of a local scuba diving club combed the murky bottom of nearby Palmdale Lake but turned up nothing. The hearing is expected to resume today. email@example.com (661) 267-5744160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

The friend, Jennifer Peterson, who had dropped her off, testified that she left the parking lot after O’Keefe got into her car, shut the door and turned on her engine and headlights. “I left when she was safely in her car,” Peterson said. “It was usually our practice to follow each other onto the freeway but she was going in the other direction to Palmdale High School.” With its engine running and the driver’s door opened, O’Keefe’s car had backed out of a parking space and rolled over the edge of a small concrete planter.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Williams was sentenced to death in 1981 for fatally shooting Albert Owens, a Whittier convenience store worker. He also was convicted of using a shotgun a few days later to kill two Los Angeles motel owners and their daughter during a robbery. While in San Quentin State Prison, Williams has been nominated five times for a Nobel Peace Prize and four times for the Nobel Prize for literature for his series of children’s books and international peace efforts intended to curtail youth gang violence. His case reached the justices following a February decision by the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. That court, as did the Supreme Court, refused to grant Williams another hearing based on his argument that prosecutors violated his rights when they dismissed all potential African-American jurors from hearing the case. The San Francisco appellate court had suggested he was a good candidate for clemency. The judges cited the children’s books he has written from prison, in addition to messages of peace he posts on the Internet. The California Criminal Justice Legal Foundation is urging against clemency, and no California governor has granted clemency to a condemned murderer since Ronald Reagan spared the life of a severely brain-damaged killer in 1967. SAN FRANCISCO — The Supreme Court refused Tuesday to take the case of California death row inmate Stanley “Tookie” Williams, a founder of the Crips street gang whose later work for peace won him Nobel Peace Prize nominations. Williams, who has been praised for his children’s books and efforts to curtail youth gang violence, likely will be executed in December if Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger does not grant clemency. The 51-year-old former gang member claims Los Angeles County prosecutors violated his rights when they dismissed all potential African-American jurors. Williams, who claims he is innocent, is in line to be one of three California condemned inmates to be executed within months. He was condemned for killing four people in 1981 and claims jailhouse informants fabricated testimony that he confessed to the murders. “We feel very strongly that this is an appropriate case for clemency because of what Stan has accomplished,” said Andrea Asaro, one of Williams’ attorneys. “Perhaps now he will finally get the punishment that a jury unanimously agreed he deserved,” said the group’s president, Michael Rushford. Williams and a high school buddy, Raymond Washington, started the Crips street gang in Los Angeles in 1971. Last year, “Redemption: The Stan Tookie Williams Story” aired on television, prompting thousands of e-mail messages to Williams from young gang members who said his life story helped them turn their lives around. “Today is a shameful day in the history of American jurisprudence,” said Barbara Becnel, a Williams confidant who edited Williams’ nine children’s books. “Today the U.S. Supreme Court has said in its ruling essentially that it is OK for a white prosecutor to kick all of the African Americans off of a jury.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Richie Wellens turned down a move to QPR before signing a new contract at Doncaster, the Yorkshire Post says.Having impressed for Rovers against Harry Redknapp’s side, and with his short-term deal about to expire, the 33-year-old midfielder was reported to be ready to move to Loftus Road.He subsequently signed an 18-month contract at Doncaster and it is claimed he rejected a six-month deal offered by Rangers.“I had one definite other option. But I wanted an 18-month contract,” Wellens told the Post.“When you get to 33, people are more bothered about how old you are than what you do on the pitch.“You speak to a lot of managers and they say: ‘If you were 28, we’d sign you’.”Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
