Nadal remains on track for first Paris Masters title

first_imgReed aims for first Bellevue 5150 title LATEST STORIES Earlier in the third round, Juan Martin del Potro moved closer to securing the last spot for the finals by beating Robin Haase 7-5, 6-4.Del Potro, who lost to Roger Federer on Sunday in the Swiss Indoors final, is in 10th place in the race to qualify for the tournament. Only the top eight players will compete in London and there is one place left, to be taken in Paris.“I would love to reach London once again. It could be a fantastic moment for me,” said del Potro, who was way back in 47th place in the race before the U.S. Open. “I’m excited to keep improving for this kind of surprise.”Del Potro has a tough challenge next, against big-serving American John Isner.The ninth-seeded Isner, last year’s runner-up to Andy Murray, hit 25 aces as he beat sixth-seeded Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria 7-6 (10), 5-7, 7-6 (3).Seventh-seeded David Goffin of Belgium was through to the finals in London, despite a surprise loss to Benneteau 6-3, 6-3. The unseeded Frenchman reached the quarters of a Masters for the first time since Shanghai in 2014 in his final tournament before retiring.Goffin will have waited nervously on the result of Frenchman Lucas Pouille’s result against Jack Sock. But Pouille’s 7-6 (6), 6-3 loss to the American sent him through, at Pouille’s expense, making him the first Belgian to qualify for the season finale.“I would have preferred to have qualified by winning and Lucas is a friend,” Goffin said. “But I am still so happy to have qualified.”Dominic Thiem went out early again, falling to Fernando Verdasco 6-4, 6-4.Since losing to Del Potro in the fourth round of the U.S. Open, the fifth-seeded Austrian has won only two matches in five tournaments.

2008 race draws 2 hopefuls

first_img“The reason I’m running is not because the city is being run poorly, but I think the council has lost touch with the people on the street,” said Gutzeit, who is vice president of the Newhall County Water District board. “What I have loved about the water board is getting input from a lot of different interests and achieving a solution that works for everybody.” Gutzeit rates the city’s top issues as the Cemex mine proposed on the outskirts of town, community preservation in the older areas, and maintaining relations with the county. Past tensions in city-county relations seem to have eased of late. Councilman Tim Ben Boydston promised to be a place-keeper when the council appointed him in January to fill the 14 months remaining in Cameron Smyth’s term after Smyth headed to the state Assembly. Boydston promises not to veer from his word, though his affinity for the post has whetted his appetite. “I’m not saying I will not run in 2010 or for a different governmental seat,” he said. “In the long run, if I do stay in this I want people to know that my word is my bond and it means more than anything else.” Councilman Bob Kellar is serving his second four-year term and has said he will seek a third. Deputy City Clerk Susan Coffman said the trio have not yet applied for the job.

You’re all set! Spierer was the first sheriff’s office commander in Santa Clarita’s history and served 32 years in the Sheriff’s Department before retiring in 2001. A lively dialogue between the city and neighboring communities could spur annexations in coming years, and the Santa Clarita Valley is poised for substantial growth in the next two decades. Maintaining public safety tops the issues facing the city, Spierer said. “When we talk about quality-of-life issues – traffic, neighborhood preservation and jobs creation – you have to start at public safety,” he said later. “We need to take a careful look at how we can improve our position and make this an even safer community to live in.” A recent Money magazine survey named Santa Clarita one of the best places in the U.S. to live. Chemical engineer Gutzeit has joined the early race in part because fundraising for the expensive task takes time. SANTA CLARITA – More than a year before the next Santa Clarita City Council election, two high-profile candidates – who emerged as front-runners to fill a council vacancy earlier this year – announced Thursday that they plan to run for the two seats. Currently, one of those seats is held by an incumbent who plans to seek re-election, the other by an appointee who vows to keep his promise not to run. The challengers are Maria Gutzeit and Bob Spierer. Supporters at Thursday’s news conference kicking off Spierer’s campaign said his service record speaks for itself. “He was a great commander and police chief and did a fabulous job for our city, keeping us safe so we can enjoy our lives,” said Councilwoman Laurene Weste. last_img read more

Manslaughter convictions for 2 ex-cons

first_img“I’m a little disappointed but I think it was a fair verdict,” Sherwood said. The jury deliberated about four hours over two days. McCombs and Harris, who both have prior convictions, are scheduled to be sentenced May 31. McCombs faces up to 24 years in prison; Harris faces 13 years, Sherwood said. The shooting occurred after Wheston, Harris and McCombs argued at Wheston’s home, sheriff’s deputies said. At some point, the three walked into the kitchen, where investigators believe McCombs and Harris began shooting at Wheston. The two assailants fled through a rear kitchen door and sped off in a silver SUV that was found later in San Bernardino County. Six days after Wheston’s death, McCombs was arrested in Pasadena in an unrelated case on suspicion of burglary and possession of a handgun, officials said. The murder charge was filed later. Harris was arrested in October 2005 in Philadelphia by the FBI after sheriff’s homicide detectives obtained information that he was hiding there. McCombs had been convicted at age 18 of vehicle theft and later of assault with a deadly weapon. He was released from state prison six months before Wheston’s death. Harris, who had a 2001 drug conviction, was on parole from prison when Wheston was killed and had stopped reporting to his parole officer, detectives said. karen.maeshiro@dailynews.com (661) 267-5744160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

LANCASTER – Two ex-convicts were acquitted Monday of second-degree murder but convicted of voluntary manslaughter in the slaying of a man in his Lancaster home over what authorities said was a drug dispute. The trial was the second for Dwayne Harris and Kyle McCombs, who were accused in the January 2005 slaying of 22-year-old Eddie Ray Wheston. Wheston was shot dead in the kitchen of the home he shared with his mother in the 800 block of West Avenue H-14. The first trial ended in mistrial when Antelope Valley Superior Court jurors acquitted the two men of first-degree murder. Eleven of the jurors voted to convict the pair of sescond-degree murder while one held out for manslaughter. Deputy District Attorney Robert Sherwood noted that the victim was holding a firearm and there was some type of struggle that preceded the shooting. last_img read more

Troubled LA immigration center still closed

first_img The ACLU filed a lawsuit earlier this year aimed at stopping immigration authorities from forcibly drugging deportees. The suit cited an incident at the San Pedro facility. The facility lost its accreditation in August after failing to comply with mandatory standards. ICE said the problems were quickly fixed and did not prompt the transfers.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Meanwhile, immigration judges have approved the government’s requests to move the vast majority of the 299 pending cases from San Pedro to other courts around the nation. But immigration advocates say the transfers have added to the delays. “It’s pretty grim,” said American Civil Liberties Union attorney Nora Preciado, who specializes in immigration detention. “It just keeps them sitting in detention for no good reason.” The detention center is one of several nationwide to come under scrutiny from immigrant and civil rights groups. Last summer, a transgender Mexican immigrant with AIDS being housed there died while in custody. The family claimed the immigrant was improperly denied medical attention, a contention officials rejected. Officials don’t know when they will reopen a troubled immigrant detention center that was closed for preventive maintenance and forced the transfer of hundreds of detainees to other facilities. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials closed the center Oct. 22, saying the repair work would take at least a month. But they now say they don’t know when the center will be reopened and are still assessing the repairs to the sprinkler and hot water systems. The center, located in the San Pedro area of Los Angeles, housed more than 400 immigrants who were detained by authorities and face deportation. The detainees were moved to other sites in California, Texas, Arizona and Washington. Last week, ICE declined to discuss the future of the center, issuing a statement saying: “At this time, ICE is working with engineering and construction professionals to evaluate the extent of the work to be done.”last_img read more
