  • Fort St. John Cabbie Assaulted

    first_imgCst. Passarell says working as a cab driver has its inherent risks. She says drivers should make it aware that they do have transmissions available to their dispatch, and that itself could deter someone from attempting an attack.The RCMP is now looking for witness information and has yet to establish a motive for the attack and is taking public assistance calls at the local detachment 250-787-8140. A 24 year old Fort St. John man is in custody and a cab driver recovering from head wounds following an assault early Monday morning at an apartment complex at the corner of 86th street and 89th avenue.The RCMP says the attack occurred, at about 4 o’clock, when the cab driver was backing out of a parking lot just after picking up a man, who then allegedly hit the cabbie repeatedly with a metal weapon.The victim reportedly prevented any further injury, by grabbing the weapon and following a brief struggle, the assailant fled the scene. With the assistance of a police dog investigating officers were able to locate and arrest a suspect, who remains in custody.Scheduled to make his first court appearance today, he’s charged with assault with a weapon, assault causing bodily harm and obstructing a police officer.Advertisement – Advertisement -Cst.

  • LBSU has no O’s in offense

    first_imgAs a team, the Dirtbags hit .425 on the weekend. “The offense was big,” coach Mike Weathers said. “Brandon was on fire, Danny Espinosa had another great weekend, freshmen Steve Tinoco and Taylor Krick did some nice things, and Jason Corder hit a home run. “We played a lot of guys and got a lot of hits and was able to overcome Arizona State’s great hitting. We actually pitched pretty well considering the scores.” The Dirtbags have a rematch tonight at Jackie Robinson Stadium against UCLA. The Dirtbags beat UCLA earlier this season at Blair Field, and the Bruins have slipped to 8-9 after losing a series at Mississippi last weekend. Shane Peterson is a candidate to start for the Dirtbags, who usually use four pitchers or more in these early midweek games. They hit the road again this week for a three-game series at Wichita State. LONG BEACH – Some of the hits pounded out by Long Beach State last weekend against Arizona State are probably still reverberating around Tempe, Ariz. In the series win over the 11th-ranked Sun Devils, the Dirtbags scored 30 runs and smacked 48 hits, recording two victories and taking a lead into the eighth inning of the other. They scored 16 runs with a season-high 23 hits in a 16-9 slamming Sunday in a nine-inning game that took 4 hours and 32 minutes to play. First baseman Brandon Godfrey, who started the series with just three h its on the season, went 10 for 15 with four runs and four RBI in the desert and was named Big West Conference Player of the Week. center_img The one thing the ASU series failed to do was solve the riddle of the third spot in the Long Beach rotation. Andre Lamontagne got an audition Sunday and couldn’t get past the second inning. Freshman Adam Wilk relieved and pitched well despite giving up two runs. Reliever Andrew Liebel was stretched out again during the series and might get a start at Wichita State. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

  • Boyd puts Broncos on his back

    first_img Boyd broke through with a career-best 31 points and tied a Broncos’ record seven three- pointers, Cook added 22 points and the Broncos rebounded in a big way with a 99-76 win over Cal State Stanislaus at Kellogg Gym. The victory keeps Cal Poly within striking distance in the California Collegiate Athletic Association standings. POMONA — Greg Kamansky locked himself and his coaching staff in his office until 1 a.m. in search of answers after Cal Poly Pomona’s upset loss to Chico State on Friday. Jonathan Boyd and Dion Cook provided an easy solution Saturday. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa Anita “It was the result of team basketball,” said Boyd, who shot 9-of-11 from the field, 7-of-9 from beyond the arc and hit all six of his foul shots. “I was just fortunate to get some open looks and knock them down. . . . I just go out and play. I don’t look for career numbers. I just look to play in the parameters of (Kamansky’s) offense and defense.” Both aspects, of course, require the team cohesiveness that the Broncos (8-5, 4-2) lacked in Friday’s 76-61 loss to Chico State. Former Montclair standout Larry Gordon turned in his first career double-double (13 points, 10 rebounds), Billy Hofman dealt 10 assists and Cal Poly (8-5, 4-2) shot 60.8 percent from the field and 75 percent from the foul line in winning for the fourth time in five games. “We’ve got a tough three games on the road, we needed this win,” said Kamansky, whose team plays at fellow defending conference co-champion Cal State San Bernardino. “We just have to focus on one game at a time.” center_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

  • Epic week of tuna fishing for the North Coast

    first_imgAnd what a week it was! The onslaught began last Wednesday out of Crescent City and didn’t let up until Tuesday afternoon. From Fort Bragg to Brookings, and every port in between, boats loaded up on the tuna. Scores were all over the board, from high teens up to seventy for some boats.The numbers, however, seemed irrelevant. The best way to describe this level of fishing – everyone who went “got all they wanted.” I’ve lived in Humboldt for the better part of 16 years now, and I can’t recall a …last_img read more
