He’s not 100% sure, but the 2022 ValleyStar Credit Union 300 is likely the end of the line for two-time Martinsville winner Timothy Peters…and it’s a complete circumstance for the veteran short tracker and Truck contender. Series.

The No11 is hyped to return to the Baileys’ car which saw Peters rise to prominence with his father, Tony, and team boss Marcus Richmond. So for Peters to do what he believes is his last green flag with his best friend in a car that represents their entire 22-year history together.

“At the end of the day when I look at this car, we started this journey years ago and it started here,” Peters said ahead of qualifying. “I think that’s gonna be it. I made a change in November to spend more time with my family, so I have to thank Kirk Ipock of Solid Rock Carriers, Misty and Marty Melo, Smith Davis Tire, Lawrence Heating and Hair , fire extinguisher system and everyone who helped me get back here for one last start with R&S Race Cars.”

It’s so hard to tell from practice as there are so many different agendas, with some teams scoffing and others focusing entirely on racing, but it looks like Peters will have a chance of winning a fifth Ridgeway grandfather clock. ‘

But Peters does not allow himself to dream of a home run during his last at bat.

“That would be cool but look at this place, 92 cars, it’s awesome,” Peters said. “There are 91 other competitors who might have something to say about it. Our aim is to lock ourselves in solidly in the show and be there on lap 200 because that is the main objective of this race.

Regardless of Saturday’s results, Peters has racked up a career that includes just one Cup start, two Busch Series seasons with Richard Childress Racing and numerous Truck Series championship seasons that included 11 wins.

DOUGLAS COUNTY – “We have completed all major tasks for the I-25 South Gap project,” said Tamara Rollison of the Colorado Department of Transportation.

Four years of work to improve the safety and smoothness of traffic on I-25 from Monument to Castle Rock, Colo., is scheduled to be completed by the promised deadline of November 2022.

The teams are currently finalizing the final details of the project.

Most construction barriers guiding lane changes were removed a year ago and traffic is benefiting from the new improved lane alignment.

Some of those miles of track required a final layer of paving. This happened over the past summer, mostly at night.

The crews also set up guardrails, drainage and technical infrastructure for the toll lanes.

Drivers have enjoyed free access to toll lanes for the past year.

The plan to start collecting tolls when construction is complete has been changed.

“The toll equipment has been installed. We still need an additional testing period to make sure everything works as expected,” Rollison said.

That means tolls probably won’t start until next spring.

Traffic flow was monitored throughout the year.

Design and engineering are working as expected.

There is a problem caused by the drivers.

“Yes there have definitely been issues with people riding the lanes, all the lanes in The Gap are too fast and it certainly presents safety issues.”

It’s all the lanes, but in the express lane the speeds are excessive.

This means more education and application even after the work is done.

There will also be plenty of notice before the toll starts.

PA

Prosecutors say Ryan Sawyer Mays was an arrogant young sailor angry at being assigned to deck duty after failing to become a Navy SEAL — and he made the Navy pay big.

But the prosecution has presented no physical evidence proving that Mays, 21, set fire to the USS Bonhomme Richard, a fact that defense attorneys plan to highlight at the sailors’ court martial that will is scheduled to begin Monday at Naval Base San Diego.

The July 2020 fire burned for nearly five days and sent acrid smoke over San Diego, damaging the amphibious assault ship so badly that it had to be scuttled. This marked one of the worst non-combatant warship disasters in recent memory.

Mays is charged with aggravated arson and willfully endangering a ship. He denied any wrongdoing.

Gary Barthel, a civilian attorney who represented Mays at a preliminary hearing to determine if there was probable cause to send the case to trial, said the Navy judge overseeing that process recommended that the case is not taken to court martial. But Vice Admiral Steve Koehler, the former commander of the US 3rd Fleet based in San Diego, who had the final say, ordered the court-martial.

Barthel said the Navy’s case relies heavily on the account of a fellow sailor who admitted to changing it several times. He said investigators ruled out that the lithium batteries were stored next to highly combustible materials such as cardboard boxes, in violation of ship protocol.

Barthel said he offered his services pro bono because he thought Mays wouldn’t be court-martialed, but he doesn’t have time with his full-time practice to continue representing the sailor, who uses a military lawyer. Still, he said he was speaking out because the Navy case was unfair.

“I think there are real questions about whether or not the fire was arson,” Barthel said. “And if it was deemed arson, there are questions as to whether Ryan Mays started that fire.”

Prosecution witness Petty Officer 3rd Class Kenji Velasco blamed his nervousness for the changes to his story and told the preliminary hearing he was now ‘100 per cent’ sure he had seen Mays go down to the lower vehicle storage area of ​​the ship on the day. fire.

Neither the military defense attorney nor the prosecution could be reached for comment.

Barthel thinks the Navy is using Mays as a scapegoat rather than admitting that it was solely the mismanagement of senior officers that led to the loss of the billion-dollar ship, or acknowledging that they blamed the bad person.

While investigators say Mays set the fire, a Navy report last year concluded the hell was preventable and unacceptable, and there were gaps in training, coordination, communications , fire preparedness, equipment maintenance and general command and control.

Navy chiefs disciplined more than 20 senior officers and sailors in what they described as widespread leadership failures that contributed to the disaster. The Navy spread blame across a wide range of ranks and responsibilities and directly blamed the ship’s three senior officers.

The ship was undergoing a two-year, $250 million upgrade in San Diego when the fire broke out. About 115 sailors were on board and nearly 60 were treated for heat exhaustion, smoke inhalation and minor injuries. The inability to extinguish or contain the fire led to temperatures exceeding 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit in some areas, melting sections of the ship into molten metal that sank in other parts of the ship.

Retired Navy Captain Lawrence B. Brennan, an adjunct professor at the Fordham Law School of Admiralty and International Maritime Law, said the prosecution had their work cut out for them.

“There are questions about identifying people in the vicinity of the fire and possible causes other than arson,” he said in an email to The Associated Press. and crucial evidence.”

The court martial is to last two weeks.

‘Enough!’: Furious Leicester fans call for Brendan Rodgers to be SACKED as winless start to season continues with 6-2 thrashing by Tottenham… with Foxes ‘defensively shambolic’ and confidence ‘at rock bottom’ “

  • Leicester City fans demand manager Brendan Rodgers be sacked immediately
  • The Foxes have been heavily beaten by Tottenham Hotspur as the winless run continues
  • Fans suggest the team are ‘defensively chaotic’ as goals keep coming in

Leicester City fans are furious with Brendan Rodgers and are demanding the manager be sacked by the club’s board following the loss to Tottenham Hotspur.

The Foxes had taken the lead against Spurs thanks to a Youri Tielemans penalty to fall behind after conceding goals from Harry Kane and Eric Dier.

James Maddison scored an equalizer for the side but a second-half slump left them scoring four goals as Rodger’s side lost 6-2 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Leicester City fans demand manager Brendan Rodgers be sacked by the club

The heavy scoreline meant Leicester had conceded at least five goals in successive top-flight matches for the first time since September 1980.

The defeat leaves the East Midlands side entrenched at the bottom of the Premier League table with just one point after losing six of their first seven games of the season.

The Foxes have enjoyed success of late, having made the Europa Conference League semi-final last season and winning the FA Cup in 2021.

But the drop in form has left fans furious as they demand change at the club and want to see the Northern Ireland manager leave his post at the King Power Stadium.

One said: “Suspect Rodgers will be sacked after this debacle. Eleven goals conceded in two games would be embarrassing enough for a promoted club, but for a club that only won the FA Cup last year. last and who made a European semi-final earlier this year…yuck.

Another said: ‘F**k this shit had had enough! Rodgers now!!! If you disagree, unsubscribe now and hold your bull shit dreams!! ‘

A third tweeted: ‘I really don’t see how Brendan Rodgers is surviving 6 straight losses especially the way it turned out. Defensively shambolic.

“Decent for the future but it’s not enough. Confidence is at an all time low. They are not bad players. I still strongly believe in that.

Notre Dame Football Team takes on Cal in this Week 3 game inside Notre Dame Stadium and here’s the info you need to tune in.

Notre Dame Football (0-2) is looking to turn its season around this Saturday when the undefeated California Golden Bears (2-0) travel to South Bend this weekend. Although Cal is undefeated at the start of the season and off to a strong start, and with the Irish struggling, Notre Dame is an 11-point favorite this week.

While many Notre Dame fans won’t agree with the Irish being the favorites with 11 points, it’s clear that Vegas has more faith in the Irish. Notre Dame will be without starting quarterback Tyler Buchner who suffered a season-ending injury last week against Marshall. Drew Pyne will now be QB 1 and will make his first career start at Notre Dame against the Golden Bears.

Here’s how you can watch Notre Dame football in Week 3

Who: Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs California Golden Bears

When: Saturday, September 17, 2022

Time: 2:30 p.m. ET

Where: Notre Dame Stadium, South Bend Indiana

TV set: NBC

Direct: Fubo TV

This Saturday will be gut testing time for the Fighting Irish football team, with their backs to the wall and playoff hopefuls out the window. This game will show what kind of leadership and heart this football team has this week.

I think Drew Pyne could be the leader the Irish team and offense need right now. Look for the Irish to rally around Pyne and do whatever it takes to claim victory on Saturday. It won’t be an easy task for a struggling Irish attack against a very stingy and well-trained defensive team. I think it will be a rock fight for 4 quarters but eventually I think the Irish will pull it off and finally get the #1 win of head coach Marcus Freeman’s career.

Department store sales rose 74.8% in the first six weeks of the new fiscal year – sales at the same time last year were hit by COVID-19 closures – and rose 21.8 % compared to pre-pandemic levels.

Mr King expects strong Christmas trading, but said he was concerned about the state of consumer confidence – especially if the Reserve Bank were to raise rates again on October 4.

“We are concerned about what can happen to the consumer, but we have built a business that has agility and flexibility because we are not dependent on one type of product or one type of category,” said he declared.

“We are able to adapt the activity according to what the client is doing. We are cautious, but we are convinced that what we offer to the consumer is an excellent value proposition.

Despite pressure on households from rising mortgage rates and energy bills, buyers continued to spend. Myer’s strong fiscal 2022 results mirror those of other retailers that reported results in August.

Underlying net profit rose 16.5% to $60.2 million for the year ended July 30, hitting the high of expectations. Its net profit rose 5.7% to $49 million after including restructuring costs, reduced floor space and asset write-downs.

Full-year sales rose 12.5% ​​to $2.99 ​​billion from $2.66 billion the year before, which included an additional week of sales. Same-store sales jumped 15% during the year. Excluding significant items, earnings before interest, amortization and tax impairment reached $400 million.

The board of directors has declared a final dividend of 2.5¢ per share to be paid on November 7. The department store chain, founded in Bendigo in 1900, has reinstated its dividend to half-year results – the first in four years.

Shares of Myer fell 1.3% to 63¢ on Thursday after rising ahead of the results.

Investors mutual fund manager Simon Conn was happy with the payout and said the market needs to revalue Myer given his strong performance and his online and data assets or “someone will take him out.” “.

Myer’s online revenue reached $722.8 million, up 34%, and accounts for about 24% of group sales.

Mr King called Myer’s loyalty program a “diamond in the rough” which he has no intention of selling. About 71% of sales come from the Myer One loyalty program, which has 6.6 million members. It also taps into a younger customer base, driven by new brands, Mr King said.

“We were looking for new and expanded partnerships to help leverage Myer One by leveraging these partnerships as they provide a new source of customer growth and significant revenue streams both in-store and online,” said Mr. King told analysts.

This week, Myer announced a new frequent flyer partner, Virgin Airline’s Velocity, joining CBA as a partner.

Chief Financial Officer Nigel Chadwick told analysts that gross operating profit margins were reduced in 2022 due to a further reduction in inventory at the end of the year and increased transport costs due to transporting its private labels to Australia.

Myer’s new robotic fulfillment center is expected to be fully operational in the June quarter and will benefit online retail by reducing fulfillment costs, which will help improve margins.

Mr Chadwick described Myer’s balance sheet as “rock solid”: Myer went from having net debt of more than $100 million for the whole of 2018 to positive net cash of $186 million dollars in 2022.

The South African owners of rival David Jones said in late August that the department store chain had also seen a rebound in sales and profits in recent months.

There has been a flurry of corporate activity in the department store arena with Goldman Sachs testing the waters with potential David Jones buyers.

Myer’s longtime suitor, Solomon Lew and his Premier Investments, increased his stake to around 23% of the company’s shares in early August. The veteran retailer is now seeking a seat on the board and has appointed Terry McCartney, who is a non-executive director of Premier.

Mr King said any shareholder with such a large stake deserved a seat on the board.

Some market watchers think Mr. Lew is happy to keep climbing up Myer’s stock book every six months until he vies for control. Others say that if Myer shareholders elect Mr. McCartney to Myer’s board, Mr. Lew could make a move for the company.

A week ago, another wealthy investor took a 1.2% stake in Myer, with the deal handled by boutique broker Aitken Mount Capital Partners.

Myer meanwhile bolstered his defense by naming Jefferies Australia.
