SUSPECT IN CUSTODY!The suspect in the Anna M. Primavere homicide, COURTNEY DAWN GIBSON, has turned herself into authorities in Lebanon, Tennessee. pic.twitter.com/8qUqzAtdRE— Titusville Police FL (@TitusvillePD) February 27, 2020 Authorities in Titusville, Florida have arrested a woman after they found the body of a missing woman inside the trunk of her car.Anna M. Primavere who rented a room at a home on 4005 Trinidad Avenue was reported missing last Friday.During the investigation authorities say they went to the home and found the landlord’s child bruised, filthy, and eating dirt alone in the home.The child’s babysitter 27-year-old Courtney Dawn Gibson who should have been in the home disappeared. Police say she was nowhere to be found around the time Primavere went missing.Authorities later discovered surveillance video showing Gibson driving away from the home with a mattress on top of her vehicle.At some point during Gibson’s drive, the mattress fell off of the vehicle and onto the side of the road. Gibson then attempted to burn it but was unsuccessful. She then reportedly drove to her parent’s home in Lebanon, Tennessee where investigators later found her Wednesday.Authorities say Gibson refused to cooperate with the investigation and would not allow authorities to search her vehicle. Despite Gibson’s refusal, authorities were eventually able to search Gibson’s vehicle once they received a search warrant.Upon searching her car, police made a gruesome discovery. They found Primavere’s body inside the trunk of Gibson’s car. Officials say Gibson turned herself in on Thursday and is now being charged with child neglect for leaving a child and tampering with evidence for burning the mattress.It has also been reported that the man who Primavere was renting a room from at the home, Zongmu Wang, was also arrested. Investigators say Wong is the parent of the child Gibson was babysitting at the residence. Titusville police have charged him with child abuse. Police say they are still looking into whether Wang had a role in the death of Primavere.
Ever go through a frustrating time that perhaps forced you to behave in a somewhat harsh manner, to the point where you suspect you might be acting harsh and become self-conscious and worry if your colleagues are saying anything unflattering about you and your erratic behavior consequently worsens? (Exhale.)Some might call that paranoia.And it’s the scenario that comes to mind when I consider the recent behavior of Wisconsin’s football head coach Bret Bielema, which may surprise those not involved in Madison’s media scene.You see, every week, Wisconsin’s offensive players speak to the media on a specific day, usually Tuesdays.Last week, after dismissing new offensive line coach Mike Markuson after only two games on the job, no offensive linemen – except for captain Ricky Wagner – was made available to the media, along with Markuson’s replacement, Bart Miller.In all, only Montee Ball, Jeff Duckworth, Danny O’Brien, Jacob Pedersen and the rest of the offense’s assistants were available, when usually the entire offense is at the media’s disposal. No James White, Jared Abbrederis or Brian Wozniak et. al.Then, after benching quarterback O’Brien against Utah State Saturday, Bielema made all quarterbacks off limits this week. No Joel Stave, Curt Phillips or O’Brien (Not even Thad Armstrong!).But never fear. Bielema assured his weekly press conference-goers a starting quarterback has been determined and nobody will be talking to them about it.“They already know,” he said. “They already know what’s going on. You won’t talk to them, but they know.”There are two reasons why Bielema would shield members of his team from the media, neither of which I think are rational in these contexts: He’s either paranoid about dissent or overly-protective.Before getting into specifics, there’s a general reason for him not to behave this way. To describe it charitably, UW’s been disappointing in all three games this season. Its list of things to fix grows weekly. Fans are not happy and critics are feasting. By firing people, benching people and then keeping things hush-hush, one could reasonably question Bielema’s confidence in the team in several ways.He needs transparency. And there’s little reason for him to turn it down.If he’s paranoid about someone speaking out against him – why would he be? If there’s anyone who’s got something to pick with Bielema over this past week, it would presumably be Markuson, who’s out of a job.But in an interview with SiriusXM College Sports Nation after his removal, Markuson didn’t express any resentment. He said the firing surprised him, but didn’t slam his former boss like he could have. He also managed to say he thought O’Brien and Miller would serve the Badgers well.And Bielema has already allowed Stave and O’Brien to talk to the media since swapping the two. O’Brien, who already has experience losing a starting job while at Maryland, told reporters after the game he’d be “supporting the hell” out of whoever plays. He did also say he didn’t expect to be in a quarterback battle that week.As for Stave, when asked what he expected to come next after finishing the game versus Utah State, he simply said he didn’t know and wasn’t worried about it.So yeah, doesn’t exactly sound like either are about to make off-field headlines.It’s fine that Bielema doesn’t want to tell who the starter is, obviously. He probably just wants to keep his next opponent, UTEP, in the dark about what signal-caller they’ll be facing. And given the complete and total lack of creativity, inspiration and buoyancy the offense has shown against three unranked teams, the Badgers might just need all the strategic advantages they can get.But there’s still such a thing as being overly-protective and that means Bielema shouldn’t fence off his quarterbacks. If he were worried the media’s inquiries would distract whoever ends up being the starter, it’s puzzling why he would allow them to speak Saturday night.It’s not like we’re dealing with Big City media here, where they travel like schools of fish. Madison’s is a bit more modest in size and isn’t abrasive in interviews. In both situations, with the quarterbacks and offensive linemen, 10 or 15 minutes with the media would probably suffice and then everyone gets three full days to be hunky-dory by kickoff.There’s just something to be said about a coach who is willing to make tough decisions but is unwilling to allow those affected to speak on it.Unless the ship gets righted, the microscope will only focus more on Bielema. Should that happen, he would be wise to allow his players to speak, whether they have different opinions or not. Transparency is a healthy thing.Otherwise, I’ll keep imagining Bielema hiding behind a thinly leafed bush in the hallways of Camp Randall, waiting for two players to walk past so he can pop out with a wild look on his face and say, “what have you been saying about me”?Elliot is a fifth-year senior majoring in journalism and philosophy. Do you think Bielema should loosen up? Tell him about it via email ([email protected]) or twitter (@elliothughes12).
Both SBVC guards played all 40 minutes against Chaffey’s full-court press. Hurdle tallied 28 points on 11-for-18 shooting with six assists and six rebounds. McKinstry chalked up 13 points, eight assists, and six steals but did have 14 turnovers. “I was using my timeouts just to give those guys a break,” SBVC interim coach Gerry Wright said. “I told them at the half I was going to try and spell them but they said they were ready to go play 20 more minutes.” Chaffey, the defending conference champion, dominated the first meeting between the teams, winning 117-99. But SBVC took control in the middle of the second half and was not threatened after that. The game was knotted at 53 with 13:55 to go when the Wolverines went on a 13-0 run with nine of those points coming from Hurdle. He also nailed a 3-pointer with 8:43 left that made it 69-54 and the Wolverines never looked back. SAN BERNARDINO – San Bernardino Valley College is used to wearing down other teams. The same is true for Chaffey College. So something had to give as the teams battled for Foothill Conference supremacy Wednesday. Chaffey suffered a blow when 6-foot-10 center Kenny Hicks was called for two technical fouls and was ejected from the game with 1:25 left in the first half and the Panthers down 42-34. That ejection means he can not play Saturday against Antelope Valley, an opponent with a strong inside presence. All five SBVC starters finished in double figures with Johnny Barnes adding 17 points, 18 rebounds and three blocks in 38 minutes. Lewis Leonard chipped in with 13 points and Devon Davis added 10 with eight rebounds. SBVC had a commanding 53-37 rebounding edge and shot 56 percent (36-for-64). Chaffey shot just 34 percent (24-for-75) including 9-for-39 from long distance. Anthony Carson and Alywn Jordan led the Panthers with 14 points each. “We’re so used to winning that when we face some adversity we had some bad attitudes,” Klein said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Chaffey gave, as the Wolverines, led by the guard tandem of Lance Hurdle and Darrian McKinstry, weathered the storm and prevailed 90-76. The win gives SBVC (25-6, 12-1) at least a share of the conference title. It will clinch it outright with a win Saturday at Barstow. Meanwhile Chaffey (27-5, 11-2) will play Antelope Valley for second place at 3 p.m. Saturday.

I should have scored. It’s disappointing, but I feel proud as well.”The confidence levels are quite high because of last week (scoring twice against Tottenham) and I felt if I came on, I would make an impact.”I feel like I did but I feel like I should have scored as well.

Advertisement Advertisement LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment It’s late afternoon in a warehouse near Inglewood and cast and crew of the modern-western sci-fi series Wynonna Earp are busy shooting a particularly dramatic scene.It is part of Season 2, which has been filming in Calgary and area since December and kicks off on the Space network on June 9. It’s surreal and claustrophobic and involves lots of shouted dialogue, sinister whispering and screaming. In fact, compared to the often playful, tongue-in-cheek tone of Wynonna Earp’s first season, this particular scene seems to be straying into horror-movie territory.Unfortunately, given that it will air near the end of the season, cast and crew are understandably cagey when it comes to explaining what is actually happening here. In fact, the preference is that we don’t mention the actor, character, setting or scenario involved. “Hey, I’m Wynonna, I got this,” says actress Melanie Scrofano, after a brief tete-a-tete with a producer about what she can and can’t reveal to a journalist visiting the set.OK, so what can we expect from Season 2?Long pause.“All the relationships that developed in Season 1 just get stronger and more complicated in Season 2 and I think that’s the strongest part of our story, the relationships,” says Scrofano, an Ottawa native who beat out hundreds to play the demon-fighting descendent of Wyatt Earp. “But there’s still tons of actions, there’s still tons of quips. It’s still really funny and we still don’t take ourselves very seriously. But there is a depth to the show that becomes apparent. What else can I say without spoiling?” Login/Register With: Facebook Advertisement Twitter
MONTREAL – Despite global business tensions, companies will continue to invest in technology and CGI Group Inc. is well-positioned to take advantage of the growing market, chief executive George Schindler said Wednesday.In his view, both consumers and other citizens want access to a more digital experience, prompting companies and governments to take action.“This is really not a situation where they can decide not to invest,” Schindler said during a conference call to discuss CGI’s fourth-quarter results which topped expectations and boosted its share price on the Toronto Stock Exchange.Spending on technology and use of outsourcing are expected to increase over the next three years, according to estimates from the information technology and consulting firm.Last year, CGI conducted a survey that suggested 40 per cent of companies wanted digital strategies for all of their businesses, compared to 12 per cent the year before. The survey involved 1,300 business people and leaders, as well as government representatives in 17 countries. Canadians accounted for 15 per cent of respondents.“In many cases, we find that companies are now changing their business through IT projects, not the other way around,” Schindler said.He told analysts that new technologies, such as massive data analysis and automation, are shaking up business models and stimulating spending.CGI ended the year on a high note with earnings above expectations in the fourth quarter, during which profits and revenues increased.Investors reacted favourably, as shares closed up 2.97 per cent at $81.47 on the Toronto Stock Exchange.For the three-month period ended Sept. 30, the Montreal-based company posted net earnings of $293.5 million, or $1.03 per share, a 40 per cent increase over the same period in 2017.Quarterly revenue reached approximately $2.8 billion compared to $2.61 billion in the fourth quarter last year.“The company reported constant-currency revenue growth of five per cent year over year, above our estimate of 4.1 per cent year over year, mostly due to stronger-than-expected revenues in Europe and Canada,” said analyst Maher Yaghi of Desjardins Capital Markets in a note to clients.Excluding non-recurring items, including a $22 million restructuring charge, adjusted fourth-quarter earnings increased 12.4 per cent to $ 309.8 million or $ 1.09 per share.The performance exceeded the expectations of analysts polled by Thomson Reuters, who expected adjusted earnings per share of $1.07 in the last quarter of the year.“We continue to see a market climate conducive to achieving our strategic aspirations of doubling CGI over the next five to seven years,” Schindler told analysts.Schindler did not express concern over the outcome of the mid-term elections in the United States, as Democrats seized control of the House of Representatives from President Donald Trump’s Republicans.Some observers say this could allow Democrats to block Republican efforts, particularly around government spending. CGI generates about 13 per cent of its annual revenue through contracts awarded to the U.S. federal government.For the full year, CGI generated net earnings of $ 1.1 billion or $3.95 per share, up 10.3 per cent from its 2017 financial year. Revenue soared by 6.1 per cent to $ 11.5 billion.Companies in this story: (TSX:GIB.A)
TORONTO — Hydro One Ltd. and Avista Corp. have formally requested that the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission reconsider its order denying approval of the $6.7-billion takeover of the U.S.-based energy utility.In a 34-page filing on Monday, the two companies say the commission erred in reaching its decision because it “misapprehended” the political risks that Ontario’s ownership stake in Hydro One poses to Avista, understated the value of the transaction’s benefits to ratepayers, and incorrectly based its conclusion about possible provincial interference with Avista upon perceived harm to Hydro One shareholders.Hydro One and Avista requested that the commission rehear the order to accept additional evidence, including a letter from Ontario’s deputy minister of energy and testimony from Hydro One’s new president and CEO.If a rehearing is granted, Hydro One and Avista requested expedited proceedings that conclude by the end of January, two months before the March 29 closing deadline in the merger agreement and subsequent expiration of Hydro One’s funding for the transaction.Washington state regulators had said they would not allow Ontario’s largest utility to buy Avista for fear the provincial government, which owns 47 per cent of Hydro One’s shares, might meddle in Avista’s operations.The U.S. regulator cited Premier Doug Ford’s move to force former Hydro One CEO Mayo Schmidt to retire, which was followed by the resignation of the entire 14-member board, as evidence that the province was willing to put political interests above those of shareholders, including those that own a majority of the Ontario utility’s stock.
