Courtois defends Chelsea’s doctors

first_img0Shares0000LONDON, October 13- Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois insists he has no complaints about the club’s handling of the head injury he suffered against Arsenal.Courtois was left dizzy and bleeding from one ear after sustaining the blow in a collision with Arsenal winger Alexis Sanchez during Chelsea’s 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge last weekend. The Belgium international was initially cleared to continue by Chelsea doctor Eva Carneiro, but was eventually replaced by Petr Cech more than 13 minutes later after his symptoms worsened.Headway, a prominent charity that supports those suffering from brain injuries, questioned Chelsea’s handling of the situation and whether the Premier League’s new regulations, which dictate players must be substituted if a concussion is suspected, were adhered to.But the 22-year-old, who played 90 minutes for Belgium in their 6-0 European qualifier win over Andorra on Friday, praised the work of his club’s medical staff.“The doctor of Chelsea did well, I think,” Courtois on Sunday told Sky Sports. “She asked me the questions she needed to ask and I could repeat immediately so I was feeling well and didn’t have to come off.“I didn’t feel I was knocked out but I was hit. I didn’t have a headache or anything, but after a few minutes I felt worse and worse.“Then I started to feel a little dizzy and I couldn’t see the ball any more and there was a little blood coming from my ear. Because I saw trouble, I went off.“I know you have to be careful, but I was not really knocked out.”Courtois underwent a series of subsequent tests in hospital, which forced him to join up with Belgium a day later than the rest of the squad.“I had some neck pains, dizziness, and headaches for a few days afterwards, so that’s why I stayed in England,” he added.“I had neurological tests to see if my brain was responding correctly and, after it was okay, I travelled to Belgium.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

No United-Xavi talks- Agent

He’s not planning on leaving,” he told Mundo Deportivo.“It is true I was in Manchester but not to talk about Xavi.”Barca will be looking to add to their two-point lead at the top of the La Liga standings when they host Eibar at the Nou Camp on Saturday evening.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000MANCHESTER, October 17-There is no truth in claims Manchester United have begun negotiations with Spain international Xavi Hernandez, according to the Barcelona star’s agent.The former World Cup winner has been strongly linked with a move away from the Nou Camp in recent months, with the arrivals of new coach Luis Enrique and playmaker Ivan Rakitic leaving Xavi’s inclusion in doubt.last_img read more

Lions Club aims to help communities

first_imgLions Clubs International Lions Clubs International is the world’s largest secular service organization with more than 1.4 million members in 200 countries around the world. The Lions Club was founded in 1917 by Melvin Jones, a Chicago businessman. Jones, whose personal code was “You can’t get very far until you start doing something for somebody else,” wanted successful colleagues to put their talents to work improving their local communities. Lions are particularly known for their work on behalf of the blind and visually impaired. This partnership began in 1925 when Helen Keller charged the Lions to be “Knights to the Blind.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhicker: Clemson demonstrates that it’s tough to knock out the champIndividual service clubs plan and participate in a variety of service projects, including hearing-related and screening projects. The Lions have doctors throughout the world who operate to save vision on those who would otherwise be unable to pay for these surgeries. Lions are also active on campus with Leo Clubs in many high schools and Campus Lions Clubs at the college level. Lions may sponsor scout troops. Young persons are able to learn to contribute their time and energy to community projects. The individual member is at the center of the organization. Membership is by invitation and the clubs look for successful people with ideas, motivation and the drive to make things happen. It is not a social club; but rather an organization to help others. Richard Prescott, president of the La Habra Host Lions Club, said the club has a busy schedule of year-round activities that requires members who are dedicated and involved. They are one of the larger clubs in this area, but still would welcome new members with fresh ideas and enthusiasm. To speak with him concerning the La Habra organization (“host” means that they have sponsored other clubs, now active themselves), call (562) 690-1506. Among activities that the club sponsors are the Corn Festival in August and the Easter pancake breakfast. This chapter sponsors the Boys & Girls Club, HBIC (Health for Brain-Injured Children), and local sports activities, in addition to the vision and hearing programs previously mentioned. The club meets from 7 to 8:30 p.m. every Tuesday, at the Westridge Golf Course in La Habra. People interested in membership may stop by to see the club in action, but are asked to call ahead.

Nelles deal is put on hold

first_imgWHITTIER – State Public Works Board members Friday put off approving the sale of the Fred C. Nelles Youth Correctional Facility to a developer, after receiving a letter from Whittier officials questioning the state’s bidding process. Whittier officials said the state should have agreed to do an independent appraisal of the 73-acre property in December 2005, after negotiations over the value of the land broke down between the city and the state Department of General Services. City officials believe the former correctional facility is worth $83 million. But state officials valued the property at $106.6 million. “The city of Whittier would very much like to avoid having to itself decide whether to commence legal proceedings in order to test the validity of any purported sale of the Nelles site,” James Markman, an attorney for the city, wrote in the letter the state board reviewed Friday. Bill Branch, spokesman for the state Department of General Services, said his department believes the state took sufficient steps to establish the property’s fair market value. “The department already has four appraisals and 13 offers as a result of going to bid,” Ron Joseph, director of General Services said during Friday’s meeting, according to Branch. “Another appraisal would not add anything to the information on record,” Joseph said. Joseph also said the state is financially motivated to quickly sell the land. Officials estimate the sale could generate $450,000 a month in interest. Helvey said he believes that is the main reason state officials selected Meruelo Maddux, which was willing to bid on the property without first learning what the city will allow to be built on the property. Helvey called it a “speculative bid.” “We don’t see the benefit of a speculative bid for the property and someone sitting on it or trying to build something not in the community’s best interest,” he said. Michael Bustamante, spokesman for Meruelo Maddux, said the firm will work with the city to create a development that fits the city’s best interests. “The chairman of the company, Richard Meruelo, is a resident of Whittier,” Bustamante said. “He grew up in Whittier and wants to make sure that whatever is developed there is best for Whittier and its residents.” Whittier city officials have indicated they want a mixed-use development of retail and housing, with at least a third of the Nelles land set aside for a big-box retailer. The city’s proposal would also include about 650 new homes, plus open space and provisions to preserve historic buildings on the Nelles property. The former youth prison was shut down by the state in 2004, after 104 years in operation. (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3022160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

State officials then selected Meruelo Maddux Properties, a developer that owns many properties in Los Angeles. Meruelo Maddux bid $107 million for the property. With the state’s selection, Meruelo Maddux was set to receive final approval Friday from the Public Works Board to purchase the land. Now the board, which meets in Sacramento, has scheduled a closed-door meeting with Whittier officials on July 14 to discuss their concerns. Although Markman’s letter to the state alluded to “legal proceedings,” City Manager Steve Helvey said the city is not threatening a lawsuit. “The City Council has not authorized the initiation of any lawsuit,” he insisted. “We have significant differences of opinion on the procedure. Once we disagreed on price, \ should have hired an independent appraiser to come up with a value.” last_img read more
