Marketing Director Valerie Bates delivered a presentation to the Commission detailing how the bayside city’s municipal logo has evolved over the decades.The first design, a woodcut which prominently featured the historic Lighthouse, was created in 1926 by the Port Isabel Land Company. It wasn’t until some decades later that the more familiar design, which features the Lighthouse, the Queen Isabella Causeway and a sunset, was designed in the mid-20th century. Since then, the design has remained mostly unchanged, except for removing certain elements, such as a depiction of a shrimping trawler.Want the whole story?

Jones fears breakthrough could be wasted

first_img GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMES RELATED PHOTOS Brave Blossoms, Eddie Jones, Rugby World Cup, 2015 Rugby World Cup, JRFU Brave Blossoms coach Eddie Jones, seen here during a training session on Monday in Warwick, England, is worried about the future of the sport in Japan. | AFP-JIJI KEYWORDScenter_img LONDON – Japan coach Eddie Jones has fired a stunning broadside at the Asian nation’s rugby board, accusing it of holding back the sport and casting doubt on its ability to build on the Brave Blossoms’ breakthrough World Cup win over South Africa.Jones led Japan to its greatest rugby triumph just over a week ago, a 34-32 win over the Springboks that prompted nearly 20 million Japanese to tune in to its next match against Scotland, a 45-10 defeat. IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5 The win over South Africa was lauded as Japan’s “coming of age” as a rugby nation by pundits worldwide, but Jones was far less bullish about the 2019 World Cup hosts’ prospects.“The legacy now is how the Japan Rugby Football Union uses the win and how strong they are in developing good coaching systems and improving infrastructure to go forward,” the 55-year-old Australian told Kyodo News at Japan’s team base in Warwick, England.“This is like a balloon. It can be popped or it can be a real growth spurt. It’s entirely the responsibility of the JRFU.“To keep improving, things have to change. I couldn’t go back after the World Cup and do what I have done for the last four years because we are not going to improve enough within the current structures. I know enough about rugby to know that.”Jones, who coached Australia to the 2003 World Cup final, said the Brave Blossoms were not just a representative team of Japan’s top players, but also had to act as a development team and a casualty ward for their injured.“We’ve had to use it for rehab and keep injured players with us because we can’t send them back (to their domestic teams),” he said.“All those things have to change if Japan wants to be a serious rugby country.“One of the reasons I decided not to continue was because I didn’t think those things could change.”After four years in charge, Jones will quit Japan after the World Cup to coach the Cape Town-based Stormers in the Southern Hemisphere’s Super Rugby competition.His departure also means he won’t take up an appointment as director of Japan’s fledgling Super Rugby team which is to join an expanded 18-team competition next season.The new team is still unnamed, lacks a coach and has yet to unveil a playing list but Super Rugby’s governing body SANZAR confirmed it in the draw for the 2016 season released on Monday.“I am surprised Super Rugby is going ahead (with them) but maybe there were legal ramifications,” Jones said.“It just hasn’t got the right infrastructure in place to be successful and it could end up doing more harm than good.”Nadolo hit with banAFP-JIJILondon — World Cup chiefs handed Fiji star Nemani Nadolo a one-week ban on Monday for a dangerous tackle, ruling him out of a key clash against Wales on Thursday.The ban against the 196 -cm giant further tarnished the Pacific Islanders’ disciplinary record and was a huge loss for Fiji, with Nadolo having scored 16 of its 24 points so far at the tournament.He was accused of carrying out a high tackle during Australia’s 28-13 win last Wednesday. Rugby World Cup said Nadolo, 27, had denied the offense.A statement said judicial officer Chris Quinlan “was not satisfied” Nadolo had committed a spear tackle — where a player is lifted up and dropped head downward.But he was found guilty of the lesser charge of a dangerous tackle. Quinlan said he had reduced a two-week ban to one week because of “mitigating factors” including Nadolo’s “excellent disciplinary record.”In two matches Fiji has now conceded 24 penalties and had three players yellow-carded, while Nadolo follows flanker Dominiko Waqaniburotu in being suspended for a week. Waqaniburotu admitted to a dangerous tip tackle on England’s Jonny May.Following losses to Australia and England, Fiji is desperate to salvage some pride against a Wales side buoyed by its stunning 28-25 victory over England inspired by a kicking master class from fly-half Dan Biggar.Their woeful record has left the Fijians in no doubt they must get their discipline under control for the Pool A match against Wales or they will be punished by Biggar.“Certainly their goal kicking is spot on, so we’re going to have to be careful to be well-disciplined in our own half,” coach John McKee admitted on Sunday. last_img read more

Reigning champs Saroa Raiders retain netball crown

first_imgNetball Reigning champions Saroa Raiders have retained the crown in the Vitis Sinaugoro netball grand final after defeating Kwikila 37-35 over the weekend. It was a tough challenge that saw Raiders coming out victorious in the end. Kwikila led in the opening quarter before Saroa, who were fast on their feet with great defensive work took control of the game thereafter and continued to sink the points that contributed to their victory. Despite an even contest, it was Raiders who came out in the end to beat Kwikila by two points. Sponsor and director of Vitis Industries Vikki Mosin congratulated the winning team Saroa Raiders and presented them with a trophy and medals. She said the company has backed the competition because it believed in the sport and the development of its players. “Netball has been a sport that many girls and women in Central love to play but over the years the sport has begun to lose its support and thrill,” Mosin said. “With the backing of Vitis, we want to keep this sport alive, give it a boost and get more girls interested in the sport. If nothing is done, the sport will surely die out.” The company has been sponsoring the Sinaugoro netball competition with K20,000 annually. This year will mark the fifth and final year of the sponsorship. Mosin said that Vitis Industries has been a committed sponsor spending more than K100,000 in five years and “we are proud that we have brought this sport forward in the Rigo district”. “I want to thank everyone who has been a great support of this competition and, also to my family who have always stood by me,” she said.last_img read more

Clough unsure over future but admits interest in Nottingham Forest job

first_imgNigel Clough insisted he was unsure whether Burton’s 2-1 win at QPR will be his final match as Brewers boss – but admitted he is interested in a potential return to Nottingham Forest. Clough has been given permission to speak to Forest about the managerial vacancy at the City Ground, where he made his name as a player and his late father Brian achieved legendary status as manager.Asked if the victory at Loftus Road signalled the end of his second spell at Burton, Clough said: “I don’t know whether it is or not.AdChoices广告“There’s been an approach and we’ll sit down in the next few days and talk about it.“I’m not going to be naive enough to suggest to you that I’m not interested in a club I’ve got such a long association with. “Burton means a lot to me too. Timing in football is never good – it stinks at times. “There’s lots to think about and lots to talk about over the next few days. “The most important thing was to not let it get in the way of what happened today. This game has been the priority all along.”Burton’s win was only their second in nine league matches and lifted them out of the relegation zone.Luke Murphy’s stunning strike gave them an early lead and Lloyd Dyer doubled their lead early in the second half before Conor Washington pulled a goal back for Rangers. “The players have been great in training as always – you saw the work-rate,” Clough added. “It was important to get out of the bottom three and we’ve done that. “This game today was so important for the club. Whatever happens in the next few days happens.”  Ads by Revcontent Trending Articles Drink This Before Bed, Watch Your Body Fat Melt Like Crazy x This Bizarre Photo Caused Mayhem, Try Not to Gasp when You See Why x Easy Way to Generate Extra Income x Last Nights Episode Left Viewers Speechless! x 20 Heartbreaking Photos North Korea Didn’t Want Released x 39 Eye-opening Photos Smuggled out of North Korea x Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook Embed from Getty Imageslast_img read more

Technical director Emenalo leaves Chelsea

first_imgEmbed from Getty ImagesChelsea technical director Michael Emenalo has stepped down after a decade working at Stamford Bridge.Emenalo arrived at the club in 2007, appointed to the scouting staff by then first-team manager Avram Grant.AdChoices广告He was briefly assistant first-team coach to Carlo Ancelotti, replacing Ray Wilkins, a move which drew criticism given his lack of coaching experience, although he has since gained his Uefa Pro Licence.The former Nigeria international was appointed technical director in July 2011 and has led Chelsea’s scouting and recruitment, including the network of loaned out youngsters.His additional role as a key adviser and confidante of Blues owner Roman Abramovich sometimes caused consternation among the Chelsea supporters, particularly when Jose Mourinho was sacked in December 2015 – Emenalo blaming “palpable discord between the players and the manager.”But during his time at Chelsea, the likes of Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois, Cesar Azpilicueta and Willian were brought in from European clubs – although the club also drew flak over expensive flops and a lack of activity in recent windows.Emenalo said: “This has been a very difficult decision to make, but one I believe is right for both myself and my family, and the club.“I have had the privilege to work alongside some of the most talented people in the world of sport over the past 10 years, and I will depart incredibly proud of the achievements we have made.“I wish Chelsea every success and look forward to following the club’s future triumphs from afar.”Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck added: “Michael has had a tremendous impact on the club over the past 10 years and this is evident in everything we have achieved.

Man City open talks for signing, send official back with offer…

first_imgAs reported by Portuguese newspaper Correio da Manhã today, Txiki Begiristain held a meeting with the Lions’ football director Hugo Viana in Manchester last week.Manchester City would have asked the conditions to make the signing, and by making the first official approach, they have now taken the lead from Manchester United in the race for Fernandes.Correio da Manhã says that despite the midfielder’s €100m release clause, Sporting are demanding €70m for the sale. And since the club are in need of money, they are not in a strong position to negotiate much.Embed from Getty ImagesThe newspaper says that Viana returned to Lisbon with a bid from Manchester City, but it doesn’t sound like the move is being done now.They say Sporting’s intention is to let the ‘sharks’ battle among themselves so Sporting can benefit from the auction.Manchester United’s approach for the player is described as ‘shy’, so it looks like Pep Guardiola’s side are the first to open serious talks for a summer transfer.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameBuild a City, Trade With Your Neighbors, Play With Your FriendsForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoDating.comThe Most Handsome Guys In Hong Kong On This Dating SiteDating.comUndoPerfect-Dating.comAre You Ready to Meet Cool Guys in Tung Chung?Perfect-Dating.comUndoKeto减肥1個簡單的妙招一夜「融化」腹部贅肉(今晚試試)Keto减肥UndoStanChart by CNBC CatalystWill Blockchain Reduce the Global Trade Finance Gap to Reach the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals?StanChart by CNBC CatalystUndo熱門話題小心會長過頭…網友推爆:「真的長得超誇張!」熱門話題UndoSingles50Hong Kong: A 40+ Dating Site That Actually Works!Singles50UndoCoworking Space | Search AdsThe cost of shared office in Hong Kong might surprise youCoworking Space | Search AdsUndo Premier League champions Manchester City have reportedly made the first official approach for the signing of Bruno Fernandes from Sporting.last_img read more
