A Vancouver man suspected of intoxicated driving faces charges after he allegedly struck a pedestrian last week, according to the Portland Police Bureau.Robert William Leary, 37, was driving north on Interstate Avenue in Portland at about 8:45 p.m. Wednesday when he reportedly struck 23-year-old Ashley Wirth, who was walking in the bike lane against traffic, Portland police reported.Wirth suffered serious injuries and was taken to a Portland hospital for treatment. Police said she is expected to survive her injuries.Leary was booked into the Multnomah County Jail on charges of third-degree assault, hit and run, recklessly endangering another person, reckless driving and driving under the influence of intoxicants, police said.

Chris Horne, a deputy prosecuting attorney who provides legal advice to the Clark County council, began a work session on Wednesday by stating that there are no “silver bullets” to deal with the challenges posed by a state Supreme Court case that’s expected to significantly complicate water availability and possibly growth in Clark County.“There’s not going to be an easy answer that tells you you must go a particular direction or another one that says you don’t have to do anything,” Horne told members of the county council, staff and members of the public who attended a work session Wednesday.The topic was the state Supreme Court’s Hirst decision. Issued in October, the court’s ruling determined that under the state’s Growth Management Act, county governments must ensure that water is legally available for new developments before issuing building permits.The decision has particular consequences for permit-exempt wells. Those are groundwater wells that serve single homes or small subdivisions and are exempt from permitting requirements if they draw no more than 5,000 gallons of water each day. These wells often are used to accommodate growth in rural areas, and as a result of the ruling county governments must independently verify that these wells won’t affect minimum stream flows or water rights held by other property owners.Horne said that Whatcom County, where the case originated, adopted a moratorium on building permits in response to the ruling. Later this month, a new ordinance will go into effect in Whatcom County requiring the county to verify the availability of water before issuing building permits. Spokane, Okanogan and Pierce counties also have passed legislation in response to the ruling.
A fire Saturday afternoon damaged a unit at The Ridge Apartments off Northeast Minnehaha Street east of the Hazel Dell strip.The fire was reported at 3:34 p.m. at 6208 N.E. 17th Ave.Firefighters from Clark County Fire District 6 spent more than three hours at the scene.The American Red Cross reported it assisted one adult and two children who were affected by the fire.
The Bridgeview Education and Employment Resource Center is beginning construction on “an act of faith,” as state Rep. Sharon Wylie put it. That faith is placed in the state Legislature, which will need to pass a capital budget that includes money for the $3.9 million project.“We’re determined that faith will not be misplaced, that we’ll move forward and do the right things to help people in our community,” said Wylie, D-Vancouver, adding that “we couldn’t do this if we weren’t optimists. We’ll have, when it passes, the best capital budget for the state of Washington that’s ever been, in my opinion.”Although there’s no capital budget yet, construction will start in the next month on the center using a $1.7 million bridge loan from Heritage Bank that the boards for Vancouver Housing Authority and Bridgeview approved earlier this year. The loan, which is backed by the housing authority, will fill the funding gap until the capital budget is resolved.Nearly $2.2 million has been raised for the project. Jan Wichert, executive director of Bridgeview, said she hopes to get $1.2 million from the Legislature, and that the remaining $500,000 would be raised through a community campaign.So, what happens if the state doesn’t give the nonprofit the full $1.2 million?“We’ll probably go back and ask again,” Wichert said.The 8,500-square-foot center in central Vancouver aims to be a one-stop shop for services and supports that low-income households may otherwise have to zigzag across the county to access. A groundbreaking ceremony Monday celebrated the start of construction.
Rio Ferdinand has backed Gareth Bale to be valuable asset for Manchester United, if he is to leave Real Madrid in the summerThe Wales record goalscorer has endured a frustrating season at the Santiago Bernabeu and has found himself on the fringes under Zinedine Zidane this season with both Isco and Marcos Asensio often being preferred by the Real coach in the starting line-up.While Bale got a rare start in the Champions League for Wednesday’s second leg against Juventus, the 28 year-old was substituted by Zidane during the break.But, despite his recent troubles at the Spanish capital, Bale has got no shortage of admirers with United being rumored to be planning a summer bid for the winger.Maguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…“For his talent, 100% [I would want him],” Ferdinand told BT Sport (via Metro).“If you get him at a decent price, but talent-wise there’s not doubting this guy. ‘But it’s just getting him out on the pitch every week is the problem. He hasn’t been able to do that.“He’s a huge talent. He’s had a bad season by all accounts from what they’re saying, their fans are disgruntled and not happy about him. He’s got 16 goals.“In the Premier League, I’d love to see him here.”
Former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson is expecting a “very tight” game between his former side and his native Sweden in Saturday’s World Cup quarter-finalThe 70-year-old became the first foreigner to take charge of the Three Lions in 2001 and led them into quarter-final appearances in three major tournaments before stepping down in 2006.Under Gareth Southgate, England have reached the last-eight of the World Cup for the first time since they were under Eriksson at the 2006 World Cup in Germany.But the ex-Lazio boss is not expecting an easy ride for them against his native Sweden.“During my time with England we met Sweden four times,” he said, according to The Express.“We lost once, and the others were draws and, going back before that, they have beaten England in big games.Crouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“It would be easier for England to beat Brazil than to beat Sweden. Sweden today are a very hard team to break down.“Their strikers are defenders when it’s time to defend and they can defend in their own box as well. Their running, their commitment, their physical work is incredible.”Luck will be a big factor for England this weekend.“England have a great chance to make a World Cup semi-final,” Eriksson added.“I can see a draw and extra time. England have set-pieces, Sweden will make some chances, but the game will come down to luck – the team that makes the most of their luck will win.“It will be very tight. My brain says England, though my heart says Sweden. But, in the last 30 years, how many times have England beaten Sweden? Not often – twice.”
Chelsea defender David Luiz is confident that Willian will remain at the club he “loves” for next seasonThe Brazilian winger has been the subject of interest for both Barcelona and, more recently, Real Madrid for a move in the summer transfer window, while Jose Mourinho is thought to have held a long-term interest in reuniting with his former player at Manchester United.But Willian himself has now played down talk of an exit from Stamford Bridge and Luiz is certain that his compatriot will be with him after Thursday transfer deadline day.“We are friends for a long time. Since the beginning, he told me he loved Chelsea,” said Luiz, according to Goal.“To leave Chelsea, he would have to do something totally out of reality, or if he really wanted to leave, or if Chelsea really wanted to kick him out. This is not the reality. Chelsea loves Willian, Willian loves Chelsea, so that’s great.Chelsea hat-trick hero Tammy Abraham hopes for more Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Tammy Abraham hopes this season will be his big breakthrough at Chelsea after firing his first hat-trick for the club in Saturday’s 5-2 win at Wolves.“He’s a fantastic player and a fantastic friend. I’ve known Willian since I was eight, so a long time. Willian loves Chelsea. He already showed his quality, so I want him to stay.”Meanwhile, Belgian duo Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois have been strongly linked with moves to Real Madrid this summer with the latter believed to be now on the verge of finally completing his long-awaited transfer.“Chelsea wants the best players to stay. They know Chelsea a lot, so they know what they’ve had here, the fun they’ve had here. Everybody loves them [Courtois and Hazard] and I hope they can stay,” continued Luiz.“Of course. I think Chelsea has a fantastic squad, with fantastic players. I want them to stay, because we have top players with confidence. [But] if they decide to leave, I think we will continue with fantastic players.”Chelsea will take on Lyon in their final pre-season game of the International Champions Cup at 21:05 (GMT +2).
Minutes before the wrap of summer transfer window, Newcastle United signs a two-year contract deal with defender Federico Fernandez from Championship side Swansea City.Fernandez arrival to Newcastle makes him the seventh close-season addition to the club. Fernandez joined Swansea in 2014 and made more than 100 Premier League appearances for the Welsh club, who were relegated last season.The Argentine was playing under Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez before moving to Swansea, when the latter was in charge of Italian side Napoli.“I know Federico well… and it was an easy decision to bring him here,” Benitez told Newcastle’s website.Virgil van Dijk praises Roberto Firmino after Liverpool’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Virgil van Dijk hailed team-mate Roberto Firmino after coming off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 comeback win against Newcastle United.“He is experienced, a very good professional and he will add competition in defence.”The both clubs refused to disclose officially the fee paid for the 29-year-old, but local media reported it to be around £6 million ($7.7m).“It was a long day but I’m really happy to be here,” Fernandez said.“It’s a new challenge in my life and I’m very excited to meet all the players and staff here.”
Roma director Monchi bemoans lack of changes the 3-3 draw with Atalanta and hopes it can be Patrik Schick’s year.After Monday’s 3-3 result, AS Roma manager Eusebio Di Francesco changed to a 3-4-1-2 formation.“It’s true that some things didn’t go well against Atalanta and it was right to change, but we also have this squad in order to have options.“The Coach decided who was ready to play this evening and has the alternatives at his disposal,” Monchi told Sky Sports Italia.[via Football Italia]Gasperini reveals why he rejected Inter Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Atalanta manager, Gian Piero Gasperini, has revealed why he rejected Internazionale Milan’s job proposal over the summer transfer window.Monchi was full of praise for young support striker Patrik Schick.“Schick is still young, he had a wonderful season at Sampdoria and stepped up to a club with more pressure. I think this year he arrived better physically and psychologically, so we can hopefully see the results on the pitch. We’ve all got a lot of confidence in him.“It’s true that we got some things wrong on Monday and had to make adjustments to the defensive movements, so the Coach chose to go with three at the back.”
Spain had spoiled England’s World Cup hype after beating their host 2-1 at Wembley and Kane was not pleased by the referees last minutes decision.Kane was not happy that the Dutch referee Danny Makkelie had not granted England’s equalizer which came in the closing moments of the game.It was England’s first game after they had played in the semi-finals at the World Cup tournament in Russia. The referee had refused to grant a point for England and had instead awarded a foul in favour of the Spanish goalkeeper David de Gea for a slight contact he made with Danny Welbeck.Crouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.It was Spain first win under the new coach Luis Enrique.Nation has a report of Kane’s displeasure: “In the big moments you need the referee to stay strong, but unfortunately he has bottled it.“Big moments you need a firm referee who don’t, under the pressure, get wrong decisions, basically.”
Inter Milan captain Mauro Icardi feels that Gonzalo Higuain is the missing piece of the jigsaw that AC Milan have been missing over the yearsThe first Milan derby of the season between Inter and AC will take place on Sunday evening in the Serie A.Both teams are chasing a spot in the top four in the league table and, crucially, a place in the Champions League for next season.As such, the game at the San Siro is being billed as a must-see in Italy with fans and former players alike curious to see how the battle between the club’s two Argentine strikers plays out.“It’s the game the city most looks forward to,” Icardi told Sky Italia.Karsdorp reveals he had too much stress at Roma Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 The Dutch defender has been with the Gialorrossi since 2017, but he has not enjoyed his time in the Italian Lega Serie A.“Of course it’s only three points if you win, but the important thing is to play a great game and give consistency to what we’re doing. If we win, we’ll work better in the aftermath.“Milan have great players, with experience and who have been playing in Serie A for a long time.“If I had to choose one I’d say Higuain, because he scores so many goals. He’s what Milan were missing.“I don’t see a rivalry, he’s had a great career and he’s a great striker. We’ll be against each other in the game, but I’m calm and looking to do my best.??”Asked if he can beat Higuain and Cristiano Ronaldo as this season’s top scorer in the Serie A, Icardi replied: “I don’t like to talk about those things at the start of the season, I’ll try to give my contribution and then we’ll see in May.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is reportedly planning on sitting Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi together in the presidential box for the 2018 Copa Libertadores finalThe Santiago Bernabeu will host the second leg of the final between Argentine giants River Plate and Boca Juniors following the events of the past few weeks.The final was postponed last month after a group of fans attacked the Boca team bus as they travelled to El Monumental stadium.This caused South American football’s governing body (CONMEBOL) to make a shocking announcement that the Copa Libertadores final would be staged in Madrid instead.Now AS reports that Perez is plotting Ronaldo’s return to the Spanish capital this Sunday, where he plans to have the Portuguese star sit alongside long-time rival Messi.Match Preview: Barcelona vs Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Is derby time in La Liga, as Barcelona welcomes Valencia to the Camp Nou Stadium tonight at 21:00 (CET).The Spanish FA (RFEF) and CONMEBOL both fully support Perez’s proposal with Messi now expected to attend.However, Ronaldo is yet to confirm his plans to make a return to Madrid given the manner of his departure this summer.The five-time Ballon d’Or winner confessed in an interview in October that Perez was the main factor behind his exit from Real Madrid as the Spaniard no longer valued him.With Juventus facing Inter Milan in the Serie A on Friday though, AS expects Ronaldo to take the chance to make a return to Madrid this Sunday.
For Nigel Clough, a single goal against Manchester City would suffice to make his team very happy after losing 9-0 in the first leg of the Football League Cup Semifinal.Manchester City defeated Burton 9-0 in the first leg of the Football League Cup Semifinal.The small Football League One club could not compete against the English Premier League side.And they are set to play tomorrow again in the second leg.For Burton boss Nigel Clough, a single goal would suffice to make his side very proud before being eliminated from the competition.“It will be about little milestones and pride of course,” said Clough to the BBC.“If one of our players could score against one of the best teams in Europe then that would be a milestone for us.”Premier League Betting: Match-day 5 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Going into the Premier League’s match-day five with a gap already beginning to form at the top of the league. We will take a…“And it would be a wonderful individual milestone for whoever got a goal.”“It will probably never happen again. To beat the team’s we have beaten to get here and end up in the last four with Manchester City, Chelsea, and Tottenham – three of the best sides in Europe,” he added.“It’s amazing, really, and the fact that the semi-finals are over two legs helps emphasize that.”Burton Albion defeated Premier League side Burnley, and Championship teams Aston Villa, Nottingham Forest, and Middlesbrough to be able to play against City.The team was founded 69 years ago and last season played in the Championship before being relegated.The Brewers have never been able to reach the Premier League.
With late goals from Aymeric Laporte and Gabriel Jesus in each half, Manchester City got three points in an early match against Everton at Goodison Park.Manchester City had a unique opportunity to reach Liverpool at the top this Wednesday with one more match played, the Citizens faced Everton at Goodison Park in an early match due to the Citizens’ League Cup final fixture against Chelsea.Manager Pep Guardiola knew how complicated this away match was going to be, he even expected that his boys would suffer a great deal to get the result but he already has them used to getting the best out of themselves in difficult situations.It’s games like today’s the ones that tell you how much Pep Guardiola has learned from English football, he knows that the style of football that his teams have doesn’t always work and there are times when you have to get your “hands dirty” a little bit.Knowing that Marco Silva’s squad was going to play defensive football at home because they wanted to get a good result, Guardiola still decided to line up his best possible starting XI and still attempted to play that offensive style that has made him so famous in modern football.But Everton refused to give in throughout the whole 90 minutes, they denied most efforts from the attacking force that Sergio Agüero and company were leading.FULL-TIME | YESSSSS! We dig in deep for three precious points!🔵 0-2 💙 #EVEMCI #mancity pic.twitter.com/hCmdsATX09— Manchester City (@ManCity) February 6, 2019The two goals from Manchester City came at the end of each half in the least expected way, the first one was during a set-piece that David Silva commanded from the final third of the pitch.His cross went straight to the box where defender Aymeric Laporte was waiting to strike the ball with a header, the effort was well-placed and it gave the Citizens the momentary lead before going to the dressing rooms.The second half was going to be more of the same, an extremely defensive Everton with very few chances created and Manchester City having the ball and the Toffies defence always on point to block any attempt from Pep Guardiola’s team.Striker Sergio Agüero made a tremendous effort throughout the whole time he played for City, but he wasn’t able to get another goal this time and he eventually left his position for Brazilian Gabriel Jesus to play the final 10 minutes of a very complicated match.The young striker was the player who decided the match in the end, he scored after Kevin de Bruyne recovered a ball on midfield and assisted him with a clinical pass between the lines.Liverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.Jesus got the ball in the back of the net with a header, it came during a second attempt after his initial shot was deflected by the goalkeeper.That one meant a lot! 👏🔵 0-2 💙 #EVEMCI #mancity pic.twitter.com/R17LLrAt4F— Manchester City (@ManCity) February 6, 2019After that final-minute goal from Jesus, Manchester City was able to get the top of the Premier League table again for the first time since December 15th, 2018.The Citizens have struggled during the current season against Liverpool but this early fixture grants them the chance of getting back to the top and apply pressure to the Reds for the upcoming match they have to play next weekend.But things are not as chipper and easy as they appear for City, they still have the complicated task of winning next Sunday’s Premier League match against Chelsea at Etihad Stadium. Liverpool on the other hand, have a relatively easier match against Bournemouth on Saturday at Anfield Road.Guardiola is right about many things, he was perfect to say that this Premier League season will be very competitive because there are several squads that won’t stop fighting until the very end of the season.The Citizens don’t only have to worry about Liverpool, they also have to look out for what Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, and Manchester United do in the final part of the competition.Rock solid and a towering header!@laporte brought the 🔥 tonight!🔵 0-2 💙 @sure #mancity pic.twitter.com/IbLquM78zZ— Manchester City (@ManCity) February 6, 2019Can Manchester City win the second consecutive Premier League title or who will win by the end of the season?

Former Juventus manager Marcello Lippi believes that Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival could not have been better timedThe five-time Ballon d’Or winner stunned the football world by leaving Real Madrid for a €112m switch to Juventus in the summer.Ronaldo recently revealed that the Real president, Florentino Pérez, no longer valued him and so he decided to leave.While his old employers struggle in his absence, Ronaldo has made an impressive start to life in Italy.The Portugal captain has managed seven goals and five assists in 10 Serie A games.And Lippi thinks that Ronaldo’s timely arrival has given Juventus a brilliant boost as they chase an eighth straight league crown and a first Champions League title since 1996.Fiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.The veteran Italian coach also suggests that a Ronaldo from three years ago wouldn’t have been as effective as he is now.“Juventus signed him at the right time,” Lippi told Courier Dello Sport, via Express.“His impact is unbelievable.“If the Bianconeri had signed him three years ago, he would’ve had a much less impact than now.”Ronaldo also recently spoke of his hopes of winning a record sixth Ballon d’Or this year.Juventus will host Cagliari on Saturday at Turin with kick-off to start at 20:30 (CEST).

For an athlete, the ones made off the field are the hardest, and I find myself in another one of those moments now,” Villa said via Goal.“Throughout my career, I have always listened to my body, people around me, and my instinct most of all.”“In those moments of doubt, I hope that a sign, a detail or something gives me clarity. A new challenge awaits, Asia.”“I take care when making such big career decisions, I need to know a club really wants me,” he added.“I love to feel welcome and I felt that from Vissel Kobe. That’s a big reason. “When I got the offer from Vissel I called Iniesta and my wife called Andres’ wife.”“The city of Kobe, the wonderful times with family, hearing about the club’s togetherness and their project – I got a good impression of the club from Andres.”“He was my team-mate as well as my friend for many years. It’s great that I can challenge myself in a new project with him,” he concluded.Quiz: How much do you know about David Villa?
