first_imgShare this:FacebookTwitter “When a big 18-wheeler comes rolling by here, it’s like the Wild, Wild West with big clouds of dust,” said David Bales, owner of Bales Buick – GMC.  TOP PHOTO:  Thick dust covers every vehicle on the Bales lot and has for several daysBales has a lot full of beautiful new cars and trucks.  All covered in ground up pavement dust.La Follette Mayor Mike Stanfield tells WLAF, “We run our sweeper each night, and the paving crew also runs a sweeper, but the particles of the ground up asphalt are so small, that it’s impossible to get it all up.  We’ve had a lot of complaints.”Campbell County’s oldest car dealer, Gamble Motors, fell under the dust bowl days before Bales Buick – GMC did and so did JR’s Used CarsBales explained that you must wash this off, because if it stays on too long, it will be very tough to remove.Stanfield explains that the paving project was to have actually begun on October 1st.  He estimates that it will be early December before the project’s completed.  Stanfield adds that the asphalt grinding and laying of new asphalt will stretch from Stop Light 10, at Cumberland Avenue, all the way to Charley’s Pizza, at the southwest city limits.Michael Hammons, owner of Logan’s Car Wash and a candidate for La Follette City Council, tells WLAF, “The dust is horrific.  Just take a look at Gamble’s Motors and JR’s Car lot. We’re having fewer people come in to the wash than what we should be with the beautiful weather. We’re down probably around 30% or more compared to what we should be.”You can barely see the price on the windshield of this Bales GMCBales Buick GMC staff members washed several vehicles Wednesday afternoon.  Time will tell how long they are able to remain clean.So.  Until the project is finished in a few weeks, the Wild Wild West keeps center stage.  (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 10/25/2018-6AM)last_img read more


From Italy: ‘Summit’ took place between Liverpool’s Klopp and Raiola to…

Posted On Sep 18 2020 by

first_imgAccording to the Italian website on Wednesday afternoon, the Reds’ hunt for a new goalkeeper to help fill the gap left by the most likely departing Simon Mignolet has taken them to the young Italian, which means Mino Raiola is involved.The Dutch super agent has been trying to get his client away from Milan for a while, and it appears Liverpool could be one of his solutions, as TMW report a ‘summit’ between Jürgen Klopp and Raiola took place a few days ago to discuss the matter.Donnarumma wasn’t the only topic of conversation between the two, either, as the pair also discussed the future of Justin Kluivert, currently at Ajax and linked with a move away from Holland this summer.Embed from Getty ImagesAs things stand, no offer has been made for the goalkeeper, but obviously that could change at any moment.Considering the faith Klopp has put in Loris Karius this season, it seems unlikely that another first-team goalkeeper would come in despite all the January rumours, but perhaps he only saw the German as the lesser of two evils.Unlikely, though.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

“The Walking Dead” star Seth Gilliam admits he was ‘Danai’d’ “Black Panther” spoilers from co-star Danai Gurira

Posted On Aug 28 2020 by

first_imgAMC/Gene PageBy now, it’s well known that Marvel Studios’ Black Panther is not only a box office smash, but a cultural “moment,” with African American moviegoers showing up to screening after screening wearing fashions that showcase their heritage.Two of those fans were The Walking Dead star Seth Gilliam and his son. The actor, who plays Father Gabriel on the hit show, tells ABC Radio, “I got some African beads and a wrist bracelet…And my son had his little Kente cloth as well and we went!”Much of the movie, which features a nearly entirely black cast, and was directed by Ryan Coogler, who is African American, is set in the fictional African kingdom of Wakanda.Gilliam tells ABC Radio, “I think it is a cultural phenomenon because it’s time. It’s time to see a different representation of  a certain sect of people in these large action-adventure movies — you know, not just one or two characters…but…to be…populated completely throughout the movie.”Gilliam joked that although The Walking Dead‘s Michonne, Danai Gurira, is in the movie, she wasn’t about to let slip any spoilers.“Couldn’t get anything out of her about it,” he laughs. “Like, ‘So, but what does it look like? But, but, what does Michael B…? But, but: Danai! Danai! Denai!’ Nothing. She would deny. She would ‘Danai’ you, is what she would do!”Gurira plays the fearsome Wakandan warrior Okoye in the film.  Gilliam says, “Aside from being proud of her…I was excited by the performance that she gave…I think she’s really compelling to watch.”Gilliam returns to AMC’s The Walking Dead this Sunday at 9 p.m. Eastern, for the series’ mid-season premiere.Black Panther was released by Marvel Studios which, like ABC News, is owned by Disney.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

William Jackson Harper says tonight’s ‘The Good Place’ season finale is one “near and dear” to him

Posted On Aug 28 2020 by

first_imgColleen Hayes/NBC(NEW YORK) — William Jackson Harper plays the indecisively funny moral philosophy professor Chidi Anagonye on NBC’s The Good Place. As the actor gears up for the season three finale tonight, Harper tells ABC Radio he’s often thought about how this amazing show will eventually end.“I’ve definitely, asked myself those questions. I know that our creators have a definite endgame in mind,” he says. “They have the whole thing mapped out in their heads. I don’t know how much I want to know, though. Because when we’re making the show, we get the scripts week-by-week and we read them and sort of go on the ride before the audience gets to go on the ride. And that’s a lot of fun.”Although Harper enjoys the show’s roller-coaster ride, the actor acknowledges every good season must come to an end. Harper teases that tonight’s “special” season finale will once again leave fans wanting more.“I think one of the things that our show does really, really well is it ends the arc… like in our finales,” he says. “But it leaves things very open and makes you want to come back. And I don’t feel that this finale will be an exception.” “It’s going to be a pretty special episode,” he adds. “It’s really near and dear to me.”   The Good Place, also starring Kristen Bell, Ted Danson, Manny Jacinto and Jameela Jamil, airs tonight at 9:30 p.m. ET on NBC.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Utah Utes football: Utes shake off slow start with an ‘efficient’ offense

Posted On Aug 14 2020 by

first_imgSALT LAKE CITY — Everyone knew that the Utah football team would beat Northern Colorado in Thursday night’s opener with a good chance of pitching a shutout, which the Utes did in a 41-0 victory. The big question was how the Ute offense would look under new offensive coordinator Brian Johnson and how quarterback Jordan Wynn would play, coming off his shoulder injury of a year ago.While the Ute offense didn’t exactly light it up, it was “efficient” as coach Kyle Whittingham put it, and overall he was pleased with how his offense performed.The offense produced 414 yards and Wynn completed 19 of 27 passes for 200 yards with an interception early in the game.”I was pleased with the offense, other than the slow start,” Whittingham said. “Once the offense got in rhythm I thought they played clean football and the execution was good and very few penalties. Jordan threw the ball efficiently and John White did his thing.”The Utes’ favorite play was White up the middle as it was a year ago when he ran for more than 1,500 yards on the year (he had 119 Thursday). But the Utes also showed off a diversified passing attack that resulted in nine different receivers catching passes, led by tight end Jake Murphy’s six catches for 78 yards and two touchdowns.Johnson wasn’t exactly doing cartwheels about his first game as an offensive coordinator, but was happy on the whole.”We left a lot of stuff out there and have a lot of stuff to clean up,” Johnson said. “But I’m glad we got the win and we played well in the red zone.”Whittingham praised Johnson’s performance in his debut as the youngest offensive coordinator in the country.”You’d never know it was his first game as a coordinator,” Whittingham said. “It went very smooth. I was conversing with Brian the whole game. He called a good game, mixed it up … I thought it was a good start for him.”Wynn threw an interception on Utah’s first drive of the game when he floated a pass towards DeVonte Christopher that was picked off by UNC’s Courtney Hall. But he settled down after that and except for a few misses, was on target before being taken out after three quarters.”I didn’t like the way I started out, but I bounced back and completed a lot of passes,” Wynn said. “I’d like to score more points, but we moved the ball and handled the situations correctly.”The Utes used freshman Travis Wilson in two early red-zone situations and both times he scored, the first time from three yards out and the second from six yards out.Johnson brightened up when asked about his freshman, saying, “It was good to get him in there.”Wilson also played most of the fourth quarter and completed his two passes for 11 and 10 yards and also made one of the most popular plays of the night when he hurdled a UNC defender on a called running play.”Travis Wilson gave us a few things … and was poised,” Whittingham said. But he wasn’t thrilled about his 6-foot-6 freshman trying to jump over defenders.”Hurdling people? Probably not.”Email: sor@desnews.comlast_img read more

Powered by Firework Chelsea’s prized summer signing Jorginho has impressed during his so far brief time at Stamford Bridge, and while the Italian national team midfielder was almost confirmed to head over to Manchester City, who were courting the Brazilian all through the summer window, his mother eventually helped him move to London.Advertisement Jorginho moved to Chelsea for a £50 million fee in the summer of 2018 after spending over four years time in Italy at Napoli. And while the idea of a reunion with his former Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri, who was now at Stamford Bridge as well, was big enough of a factor in the move, the Brazilian’s mother played a pivotal role in deciding her son’s next footballing destination, and Jorginho has been really happy with how things have turned out, as he has started 19 of the 20 League games Chelsea played this season.“My mum was a big influence in me coming here. Every decision, I speak to my mum and this one was the same. My mum has always been by my side for every decision I take,” he said, adding that the move has been helped by having Sarri in the dugout.Advertisement “I think it is easier for me because I know how he works and I know what he wants from me on the pitch. It has made me coming here easier. I think he has already changed a lot.”The 27-year old is also a firm believer that his Chelsea teammate Eden Hazard is als the best player in the world.Advertisement “With the potential he has, if he wants, he can be the best in the world,” Jorginho explained.Read also:-Real Madrid reportedly ‘agree deal’ with Chelsea over potential Hazard sale Advertisementlast_img read more
