Suzuki signed a one year deal in his return to the Mariners. (AP Photo/Matt York)PEORIA, Ariz. — Ichiro Suzuki’s wish was granted. He is back in the familiar white and blue jersey of the Seattle Mariners.“Even in the offseason when I would go back to Japan, I always came back to Seattle. This was my home … has always been my home,” the 44-year-old outfielder said through a translator Wednesday after finalizing a $750,000, one-year contract. “Somewhere deep inside, I wanted to return and wear this uniform again.”ADVERTISEMENT Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours City advances to Champions League QFs despite loss to Basel It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson View comments MOST READ Sea turtle trapped in net freed in Legazpi City UK plans Brexit celebrations but warns businesses may suffer Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Phivolcs records 2 ‘discrete weak ash explosions’ at Taal Volcano Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Phivolcs records 2 ‘discrete weak ash explosions’ at Taal Volcano GALLERY: Barangay Ginebra back as PBA Governors’ Cup kings Almost six years away, Suzuki returned to help patch an injury-depleted outfield on the team he played for from 2001-12.

Suzuki appeared in 136 games last year for the Miami Marlins and hit .255 with a .318 on-base percentage.“I still have things that I want to do and I want to accomplish,” Suzuki said. “I’m really thinking about this year and what the Seattle Mariners need, what I can do to help. Everything that I’ve gained, everything that I’ve done in my career, I want to just give it all right here in Seattle.” Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto said discussions about Suzuki’s return intensified about a week ago, when the club’s injury situation became a greater concern.“It did not take very long to put a deal together that brought Ichiro back home,” Dipoto said, adding that Suzuki’s presence will help a young outfield and veteran Dee Gordon, who is playing center field for the first time.“It’s huge for our club and our ability to step forward,” Dipoto said.Projected left fielder Ben Gamel is sidelined for at least a month with a strained oblique muscle, Right fielder Mitch Haniger is dealing with a hand injury that has limited his activity for a couple of weeks, and Guillermo Heredia is still in the final stages of recovery from offseason shoulder surgery.Suzuki underwent a physical in Seattle on Monday. His return is similar to the Mariners’ reunion with Ken Griffey Jr. in 2009 that was good for one year but had an ugly conclusion.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES Seattle has significant concerns about depth in the outfield. Other options were available, including free agents Jose Bautista, Carlos Gonzalez and Jon Jay.“Bringing him in, what he can do on the field, still think he’s got plenty left in the tank there,” Mariners manager Scott Servais said. “What he adds in the clubhouse I think is very, very valuable.”Suzuki is slated to play left field and will need a few days of workouts and batting practice before he plays in a game, Servais said.Suzuki had 2,533 hits with the Mariners, including 262 in 2004 when he set the big league season record. His trade to New York during the 2012 season was a stunning conclusion to his time in Seattle, but gave Suzuki the chance to play in the postseason for the first time since his rookie season.Suzuki reunites with former Yankees teammates Robinson Cano and David Phelps, and he played with Gordon and Phelps in Miami. Third baseman Kyle Seager, pitcher Felix Hernandez and hitting coach Edgar Martinez were Suzuki’s teammates in Seattle before he was traded.On Wednesday, a stall in the Mariners’ spring training clubhouse awaited Suzuki, situated between journeyman outfielder Kirk Niewenhuis and starting shortstop Jean Segura.

first_imgJudge Blamo Dixon of Criminal Court ‘C’ on Tuesday January 7, found the First International Bank (FIB) guilty of stealing US$56,750 from the account of the Liberia Airport Authority (LAA).Judge Dixon also fined the bank US$10,000 and some of it executives US$300 each.The Criminal Court Judge’s action followed his denial of the bank’s appeal to quash the writ of arrest and indictment prepared against it by the government.Their appeal to quash the government’s writ issued against them was predicated (based) on their defense that grounds that they had restituted (paid back) the money.The bank was charged with theft of property, economic sabotage, criminal conspiracy, and misapplication of entrusted property.The charge stemmed from the bank’s transfer of US$56,750  from LAA’s account, to the  Melvin Johnson and Associates account held at the JPMorgan Chase Bank in the United State of America (USA).They admitted the allegation and restituted the US$56,750 to the court, when they first appeared before the court.But, ruling further in the matter, Judge Dixon declared that the bank should have filed its motion-to-quash to his predecessor, Judge Peter Gbenewelah, to whom the Bank had made restituted, according to the Bank’s statement. “It is true that the bank restituted said money to the court through Judge Peter Gbenewelah, who first heard the case. But, they failed to file that motion to ‘quash’ when Judge Gbenewelah was presiding over this Court,” Judge Dixon clarified.“Therefore, the motion is hereby denied and prosecution request for re-summoning the FIBank is hereby granted,” the Criminal Court Judge declared. “Prosecution is hereby ordered to publish the re-summon notice including the indictment in some newspapers and radio stations for four days,” he went on to rule.“The US$56,750 paid by the bank to the court as restitution will remain with the court.”“The Bank is ordered to appeal before the court on February 12 to commence the trial,” Judge Dixon instructed.The case came up in July 2013, when the LAA accused the bank of conspiring with Madam Ellen Corkrum, then managing director and transferred US$56,750 to the  Melvin Johnson and Associates account held in JP Morgan Chase Bank in the United States of America, which bears no authorized signatory to the LAA account.Notwithstanding, the bank did transfer that money to the account of defendant Melvin Johnson and Associates. Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgMACKENZIE, B.C. – Canfor announced Thursday more capacity reductions in Mackenzie and Prince George.The Mackenzie sawmill will be placed on an indefinite curtailment effective immediately due to the high cost of fibre and poor lumber markets. On top of that, Canfor says challenging operating conditions have made the mill uneconomic under current conditions.The Isle Pierre sawmill in Prince George will be permanently reduced from two shifts to one shift effective September 20, 2019. The capacity reduction, which is due to insufficient timber supply as a result of the mountain pine beetle epidemic and associated decline in the annual allowable cut, will enable the mill to better align its production capacity with the sustainable fibre supply in the region. – Advertisement -“We deeply regret the impacts that these capacity reductions will have on our Mackenzie and Isle Pierre employees, contractors, their families and the local communities,” said Stephen Mackie, Senior Vice President of Canadian Operations, Canfor. “The BC forest industry is continuing to face very significant challenges. None of our temporary or permanent curtailment decisions have been made lightly, nor are they a reflection on the hard work and dedication of our employees.”In combination, these curtailments will reduce Canfor’s annual production output by approximately 400 million board feet, which is in addition to previously announced reductions.last_img read more

first_imgThe ninth, 10th and 11th grades all experienced significant improvements in the dropout rate, but 12th-graders had 52 percent more dropouts compared with the year before. District officials on Monday said they did not know how much the new efforts would cost but said it would come out of the $10 million already allocated to the program. When LAUSD rolled out its Diploma Project in August 2006, the goal was to track about 20,000 at-risk students – even so far as going to their homes to get acquainted with the kids and their parents. This year, district officials said they were able to reduce that to about 17,000 students. Counselor Rochelle Morrison, who works out of Gardena High School, has been visiting students at home since the fall of 2006. “It’s a different approach,” Morrison said about the new campaign. “It could be a way to reach kids. It’s going to help us reach them, but we’re still going to have to do our best to bring them back.” Ultimately, district officials hope to reduce LAUSD’s dropout rate every year. The target for this year is a 5 percent reduction. District dropout rates have been estimated at anywhere from 23percent to more than 50 percent. Under the program, LAUSD has 80 diploma project advisers at 45 high schools and 34 middle schools to work with teachers and at-risk students to determine how to keep them in school – including through independent study, adult education classes or off-campus learning centers. “The message is come back. Come back to school,” Superintendent David Brewer said. “Do not stay out there and become a statistic in our society.” At Watts’ Jordan High School, where the district held the news conference Monday morning, there were about 20 students the dropout counselor was able to bring back to school. Rene Ahal, a diploma project adviser at Reseda High School, said the biggest challenge is that most at-risk students are so far behind in credits by the time they reach high school that they feel helpless. But Ahal said most also don’t know about the options available to them – including making up credits at community college or adult school. And Ahal said she also talks to them about how much money they can make and what kinds of jobs they can aspire to with high-school diplomas. “We expect to see changes, but the program’s only been in effect for the past year,” Ahal said. “Over time it’s going to make a big difference.” Saul Hernandez, 19, said that although he had trouble with drugs in the ninth and 10th grades, he realized he needed to graduate from high school to have a better future. Now, he said he hopes to tell his story through the Internet to help others who aren’t sure if they want to get a high school diploma. “I knew that if I wasn’t going to get a good education, I wasn’t going to make it in life,” said Hernandez, a father-to-be who expects to graduate from high school in June. “It could make a change for other students. They can see us as an example to not be a dropout.” naush.boghossian@dailynews.com Staff writer Paul Clinton contributed to this article.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! By Naush Boghossian STAFF WRITER More than a year after rolling out a $10million effort to keep at-risk students in school and to re-enroll those who have left, Los Angeles Unified’s dropout rate has seen little improvement. But the nation’s second-largest school district announced Monday it will expand its anti-dropout efforts to the Internet and radio airwaves and send even more counselors door to door. The new program – “My Future, My Decision” – is a broad effort that includes spots on 105.9 FM, a text-messaging campaign and interaction through popular social networking Web sites MySpace and Facebook. While district officials said they are still waiting for full-year dropout data to be released, the most recent numbers – which include two months under the anti-dropout campaign – show a dropout rate of 25.5 percent or about 1.4 percentage points higher than the year before. “We’re getting a lot of good information from principals and local district superintendents so I would expect to see the (dropout) numbers come down,” said Debra Duardo, LAUSD’s director of dropout prevention and recovery. “We don’t have the statistics for this year to measure how successful it’s been. ? We’ll see in a couple of months ? the impact of their work.” Duardo said the dropout rate increased in the most recent measures because it was the first year in which the state’s Exit Exam was a requirement for graduation, so 12th-grade performance brought down the total average. last_img read more

first_imgLOS ANGELES — LeBron James must have sensed something looming when he told ESPN The Magazine this month that he hasn’t yet acquired Kobe Bryant’s killer instinct. As if on cue, Bryant beat James and the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday by sinking three straight long jumpers over a 90-second span of the fourth period. Bryant’s final shot was over James’ outstretched hands with just eight seconds left and proved to be the deciding points in the Lakers’ 99-98 victory. James followed Bryant’s shot by missing a free throw that could have tied it and a 15-foot jumper that could have won it. Bryant reported no problems with the sprained wrist his sustained during Thursday’s game and expects to play today when the Lakers visit Golden State. Tonight’s game precedes Monday’s match up against the Miami Heat and Shaquille O’Neal at Staples Center and follows Thursday’s electric game against James and the Cavaliers. In other words, the Lakers have to guard against overlooking the Warriors. “We’re not overlooking them at all,” Bryant said. The last time we were up there we lost by like 40 points. You don’t forget stuff like that. It should be a fun game.” LOST IN TRANSLATION Lost in the shuffle of Bryant’s magical game-winning stretch against the Cavaliers on Thursday was the impressive game Lamar Odom put together. Odom had 20 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists, often going right at James on drives to the basket or post ups in the paint. “We liked a couple of match ups in that game where Lamar was concerned,” Lakers coach Phil Jackson said. As a result, Odom was more aggressive than usual offensively as the Lakers tried to take advantage of mismatches on James and Donyell Marshall. “It was a good game for Lamar and hopefully it’s something he can build on,” Jackson said. LAKERS at GOLDEN STATE Tipoff: 7:30 p.m. The Arena of OaklandTV/Radio: KCAL/9; XTRA 570Lakers (19-17) update: The Lakers are in dangerous territory in this game, as it’s sandwiched between Thursday’s playoff like game against Cleveland and Monday’s match up against Shaquille O’Neal and the Miami Heat. However, the Lakers are battling Golden State for playoff positioning, holding a two-game lead over the Warriors for the seventh seed. That’s enough incentive to stay focused in a big game against a division opponent.Warriors (17-18) update: The Warriors have been streaky all year, and right now they’re on one of their down streaks while losing four straight to fall under .500 for the first time all year. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Bryant just smiled. “I’ve just always been that way,” Bryant said. “Always. From the word go.” Bryant’s lust for winning hasn’t always made him the most popular person on or off the court. “It rubbed a lot of people the wrong way,” Bryant said. “But I didn’t care. That’s just who I was. It helped that I had my family and my father and my uncles telling me you just have to go out there and be competitive and do what you’ve got to do. And that’s how I was.
