Scott Israel, the suspended Broward sheriff who is running to reclaim the position, is now answering questions about his omissions in a past job application.Israel appears to have omitted details from an application completed while applying for the job of North Bay Village police chief in 2004, after serving as a Fort Lauderdale police officer since 1979.His leading opponent, Sheriff Gregory Tony, was appointed by Gov. Ron DeSantis in January 2019 to replace Israel.Tony, who was selected by Gov. Ron DeSantis to replace Israel in Jan. 2019, recently faced scrutiny as well, regarding issues such as his decision not to disclose his experimenting with LSD and a juvenile arrest on a murder charge in Philadelphia, for which he was later found not guiltyMeanwhile, Israel’s 2004 application was part of a background check by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. He wrote on the application that he had never been named as a defendant in a lawsuit and never had a lien against him.However, Israel had actually been named in two foreclosure actions, as well as twice as a named defendant in lawsuits against the Fort Lauderdale Police Department.Both foreclosure actions involved the same property. Israel was never served with a notice in the first one, according to records.“In the mid-1980s, Sheriff Israel lent money to a friend to buy a condo and co-signed the mortgage for him,” Israel campaign consultant Amy Rose explained in an email to the South Florida Sun Sentinel. His name was not on the title.She added, “Sheriff Israel never owned the property or lived in it. … It became apparent that Sheriff Israel and the Homeowners Association were only named as defendants to wipe out their interest in the property.”Please see a note from Sheriff Gregory Tony below. pic.twitter.com/0Q1BQR8Gia— Sheriff Gregory Tony 2020 (@sherifftony2020) May 3, 2020 As far as the police lawsuits, Israel again said he was never served and was unaware that he was sued.“During the time period these suits were filed [in the 1980s] Sheriff Israel worked as an undercover narcotics detective and it was common for the city to be sued for seizures,” Rose said. “All lawsuits against the city or an officer in his/her official capacity were served on the Police Dept. and handled by the City.”Both lawsuits were dismissed soon after they were filed, according to court records.On his FDLE form, Israel disclosed a 1975 arrest for trespassing at a motel in Key West. “Israel could have easily lied about his teenage arrest record because no documentation exists and generally it is very difficult for background investigators to uncover misdemeanor arrests,” Rose said. “Sheriff Israel has always disclosed this information as required.”Gov. DeSantis suspended Israel last year due to criticism of his handling of mass shootings at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.
IN racing, the newly introduced Sport Tuner division is regarded as one of the more closely contested classes and Daniel Deokie is gearing himself for just that, when the second National Race of Champions gets going on July 2.Deokie, who will also be competing in the group two class, feels as though he is ready and raring to take on the challenge of competing in two classes.He told Chronicle Sport, “I am mentally and physically fit as we speak. I’m heading into the second leg of the Race of Champions. I am ready to take on the charging force from the competition.”“Right now, after the first round, I lead the championship so guys are going to be coming for me hard. It’s not hard to see why, but come raceway, I’m not expecting an easy time,” he continued.“I never rule out and overlook any of the fellow drivers in my GP. It’s motor racing and anything could happen on that particular day,” he added.Deokie, who holds the lead at the sport tuner class with 75 points after round one, noted that there are not many alterations that need to made to his car, adding, “the car is working fine. We will be making a few fine changes to the suspension”.“What I can say is that I predict a good, quality day of racing and I’m also looking forward to it.He further thanked his sponsors Toucan Industries, Payless Variety Store, Scott’s Jewellery, D&G Foreign Auto, Robbie’s Jewellery, Emran and Raymond General Auto and Super 95 Gas for their continued support.The event is sponsored by Ansa McAl, Prem’s Electrical, B.M.

Published on April 12, 2018 at 10:23 pm Contact Charlie: firstname.lastname@example.org | @charliedisturco Facebook Twitter Google+ Comments Chris Slayton didn’t want to play football before high school.But he was big and his stepdad, Lem Slaughter, knew Slayton had potential. So he pushed him to pick up the sport freshman year.“(Football was) all I knew,” Slaughter said. “So I got all my boys into football.”When he stepped on the field, Slayton, who really never played sports competitively before, asked to play quarterback. He had played catch with Slaughter all his life. Throwing a football around the yard was really all Slayton knew about the game.Coaches rejected that idea, seeing Slayton’s massive frame, and placed him on the defensive line. When the season began, Slayton didn’t like the sport, he said. It confused him.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I wanted to quit,” Slayton said, “but my mom told me I couldn’t. (She) saw it in me.”Two years after asking to play quarterback, Slayton lined up on the starting defensive line at Crete-Monee (Illinois) High School. It was then Slayton realized the possibility of playing at the next level.Slayton lived in the gym and worked to become a “student of the game,” he said. The college offers poured in and Slayton decided on Syracuse. He now enters his redshirt senior year as the team’s active leader in career games played, tackles for loss, sacks and forced fumbles. But that progression into SU’s star defender wouldn’t have happened without his stepdad.“It was a shock for me to see him starting (junior year),” Slaughter said. “… He went way beyond our expectations.”Alexandra Moreo | Senior Staff PhotographerThat season set the stage for Slayton’s path. For the first time, Slayton played with confidence. He knew his potential. Once he worked on his techniques and devoted more time to lifting weights, the rest followed suit.Slayton dropped basketball and dedicated all his attention to football. At 6-foot-4, Slayton knew he couldn’t play power forward at the Division I level, Slaughter said. But his height would help him as a defensive lineman. During his junior year, Crete-Monee won the state championship with Slayton leading its defensive unit.As the Warriors blitzed through the season en route to a perfect 14-0 record, Slayton did the same on the defensive line. He finished the season with 61 tackles, nine sacks and three forced fumbles. He earned a spot on the all-conference team and was an all-state special mention.When he arrived at SU in 2014, Slayton weighed 288 pounds, according to 247sports.com. He redshirted his first year before appearing in all 12 games with four starts in 2015. By 2016, his redshirt sophomore year, he was a full-time starter.The key, Slayton said, was focusing more on technique. He used a shiver board, a pad that helps teach proper footwork and better blow delivery. The board simulates what it’s like to face an offensive lineman, and Slayton worked on his “punch” to help push back and get by opponents.“Just wanting to become a better football player all-around,” Slayton said. “Better leader, technician, all those things.”Since coming to SU, Slayton has added nearly 30 pounds and his workout numbers have skyrocketed. Former Syracuse defensive coordinator Chuck Bullough told The Daily Orange last year that Slayton was one of the strongest players on the team.Slayton estimates that he now squats 700 pounds, more than twice his weight, and can bench just north of 400.Adding that extra strength helps Slayton beat offensive linemen, he said, especially if the opponent didn’t use good technique off the snap. His stats correspond to his increase in strength. He finished second on SU with 8.5 tackles for loss in 2017 and knocked Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant out of the game in an eventual upset win over the No. 2 Tigers.After SU’s win over Clemson, head coach Dino Babers referred to Slayton as simply “three technique,” the position where he lines up on the defensive line on the outside shoulder of the guard because Slayton excels so much in that spot.Talia Trackim | Design EditorSlayton’s parents refer to him as a quiet, confident player. He has that “competitive edge in him,” Slaughter said, one that doesn’t die off until way after the game has ended. During high school games, Slaughter joked, Slayton would run off the field and straight into the locker room rather than stopping by the stands to say hello to his parents.But that competitive edge has led to Babers saying Slayton is a future NFL player. Throughout last season and into 2018, Babers has hyped up his star defensive lineman.“Slayton is an M and an N with an A in the middle,” Babers said this past week. “He’s the real deal.”Without Parris Bennett and Zaire Franklin in Syracuse’s front seven, Slayton is the new leader of the defense. Shortly after last season ended — a season without a bowl game appearance — Slayton said the graduating seniors told him it was his time to “run the show.”Nine years ago, when Slayton first picked up football, heading a Division-I defense seemed like something that would never happen.Now that quiet kid who wanted to play quarterback is the anchor on a Syracuse defense. And his name has circulated around the NFL Draft. All because his parents pushed him to never quit.
In the 2008 general election, his party was defeated by the Democratic Labour Party .Arthur stepped down as party leader, but remained the Member of Parliament for the constituency of Saint Peter. He subsequently returned to lead the BLP in 2010, but he was replaced as party leader after the BLP lost the 2013 general election. BRIDGETOWN, Barbados – The Barbados government on Monday praised former prime minister Owen Arthur for his significant and meaningful contributions to the political as well as the socio-economic development of the island as well as the wider Caribbean Community (CARICOM). “I was with Owen in Jamaica when he signed in 2006 with tremendous pride the instruments that brought the CARICOM Single Market into existence. He was brimming with pride,” she said, recalling also how the former prime minister had ‘set out to and did master the art of politics. “His work will continue as we continue those preparations and will be built upon,”, Mottley said, adding that the coronavirus (COVID019) had severely affected his last assignment as the chair of the board of directors of the financially-strapped regional airline LIAT. “Indeed it was on this platform where duty met politics and policy in the national interest that he and I, we would anchor our most recent relationship and I thank him for meeting me here in the last 18 months. Barbados is observing three days of national mourning in his honour. CMC Arthur lead the ruling Barbados Labour Party (BLP) to victory in the 1994 general election and won general elections again in 1999 and 2003. “Despite being associated with party politics, in the last two years he freely offered advice and direction across the political divide,” the party added. He served as prime minister on three occasions between September 1994 to January 2008. He was Leader of the Opposition in Barbados from 1 August 1993 to 6 September 1994; and from 23 October 2010 to 21 February 2013. The main opposition Democratic Labour Party (DLP) in extending condolences, noted “as the longest-serving leader, who presided over a period of expansion for Barbados, he deserves his place rightfully alongside other noted nation-builders. “I asked him to serve in a number of key areas including in a jobs and advisory council, this came in the last year after he helped this government in the forging of a new industrial policy and in a review of the international trade options small island developing states as we prepared ourselves to be the smallest country to host an UNCTAD Assembly. “It was with a heavy heart that he and his board recommended the liquidation of LIAT (1974) Limited. Owen was conscious that he made the decision to increase Barbados’s participation with LIAT at the turn of the century…but that the scale of the impact of COVID and the state of the company as it is today would make that task virtually out of our reach and certainly as Barbadians given all that we now had to face with COVID.” She said he worked assiduously “to make this the new standard for political mobilisation and representation for all and we all followed”. Arthur, an economist, had been hospitalised earlier this month after suffering heart related complications. She told the nation that the late prime minister had discharged his duty “with distinction,” adding “he shall remain in that pantheon of Caribbean leaders and on behalf of the government and people of Barbados, we say thank you to Owen Seymour Arthur and to his family for service to a grateful nation and to a proud people”. In an address to the nation, marking the death of Arthur at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Mottley said her late colleague’s passion for the development of the region “coincided with his responsibility as the lead prime minister in CARICOM for the single market and single economy. “But he never in so doing compromised his economic training and his commitment at all times to sound policy. It was his hallmark. Owen from the earl 1990s moulded a new class of politicians in this country, and changed in many ways how those representatives would serve to better meet the changing needs…as they served their constituencies”. Mottley said Arthur was indeed the “man for all times” who never lost the thirst for public policy and that his counsel, especially on the Barbados economy “was rendered to all governments. Mottley said Barbados, and indeed the Caribbean is poorer for Arthur’s death, adding “his intellect was larger than life, his love of country as constant as the Northern Star,” she said.
CMC On Sunday, the Ministry of Health said that the third death in recent days, is an adult male who had pre-existing medical conditions. Active cases of the virus now stand at 36, with 22 new positive cases reported, bringing the number of confirmed numbers of the virus in the twin island republic to 519. In a clinical update, the Ministry of Health said of the 22 new infections reported, 14 tested positive at a private lab, six are pending epidemiological investigation, and two are contacts of recently positive COVID-19 patients. PORT OF SPAIN – Trinidad and Tobago has recorded an additional death related to COVID-19 bringing the number of related deaths to 11. The Ministry assured that all established protocols have been implemented and said that one more patient has recovered from the coronavirus, bringing the tally of people discharged to 140.
That wasn’t enough.“A lot of it is on Jeremy in getting guys to where they need to be and run their offense,” Scott said. “It’s on him as a point guard to get guys involved. But it wasn’t just Jeremy. It was the whole team.”Scott took aim on the Lakers’ one-on-one style of play. Young’s team-leading 23 points on 4-of-9 shooting and 13-of-13 mark from the foul line in 24 minutes off the bench marked a vast improvement from the 26.1 percent clip he had averaged in the previous five games. But Young picked up a technical foul with 4:03 left remaining after Jazz forward Enes Kanter set a screen. Hayward then converted on the technical before Derrick Favors scored on a reverse layup that put the Jazz up 89-83 with 3:53 left. But plenty of the focus reverted back to Lin, whom Scott has pushed to improve in his aggressiveness, playmaking and defense.Despite Utah guard Trey Burke scoring 20 points on 7-of-20 shooting, Scott said Lin “did a pretty decent job.” With Lin improving his shooting accuracy from December (35.7 percent) to January (49.3 percent), Scott credited his improved shot selection achieved by driving to the basket instead of settling for jumpers. But Scott sounded unsure if Lin could mirror Price’s toughness. “I’m not saying (Lin’s) soft or anything like that,” Scott said. “But Ronnie Price is a tough kid, period.”Lin’s take?“I don’t think I play soft,” Lin said. “I do everything I can to make everything as tough as I can and be hostile on both ends of the floor.”And to think, Scott said beforehand he “probably” would make changes in the starting lineup. All of which will provide plenty to talk about regarding the Lakers. That includes Bryant, of course. SALT LAKE CITY >> Kobe Bryant stayed put in Los Angeles, allowing the Lakers’ 36-year-old star both to rest and for reporters to refrain from asking persistent questions that coach Byron Scott believes have become “blown out of proportion.”“Everybody is always interested in what Kobe is going to do, and if he’s going to play,” Scott said. “I understand that part. But once it’s said and done, go on to the next subject.”The Lakers’ 94-85 loss to the Utah Jazz on Friday at EnergySolutions Arena offered plenty of other subjects to discuss. The main topic went beyond the Lakers (12-29) cementing both a three-game losing streak and the NBA’s fourth-worst record, two statistical footnotes that could worsen as the season prolongs. Jeremy Lin started at point guard while Ronnie Price sat to heal an aggravated right elbow. But Lin hardly made his case to retake the spot he once lost, posting only six points on 3-of-10 shooting, three assists and three turnovers in 30 minutes. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “I don’t think he’s been great,” Scott said. “I think he’s been OK. But I don’t think he’s been terrible, either.”Why?“It’s a tough system for him and playing with a hard-nosed coach and hard-nosed player,” said Lakers forward Nick Young, referring to Bryant. “But Jeremy is going to be all right.”Few would describe Lin, or the Lakers for that matter, as all right against Utah. The Lakers posted 19 turnovers and a season-low seven assists. Utah guard Gordon Hayward matched that assist total when he wasn’t scoring a team-high 31 points on 12-of-18 shooting. Bryant’s career-high 17 assists in Thursday’s loss to Cleveland featured him recording eight of them in the first quarter.“I would’ve loved to play better,” Lin said, “but I wouldn’t say it’s a lack of effort.”
