On November 8, come on out to the Friends of the Muir Valley Benefit at the Land of the Arches Campground to spend time in one of Eastern America’s best sites for climbing, hiking, and simply soaking in a beautiful landscape.Named after John Muir, climber extraordinaire of the 19th century, founder of the famous Sierra Club, and outdoor preservation hero, the Muir Valley occupies over 400 acres of Kentucky land and features sandstone cliffs renowned across the country for their size, beauty, and top-notch climbing quality. It’s an incredibly accessible window to the world of outdoor sports: climbers and hikers of all levels can enjoy the scene, and admission is completely free. But because the area does not have an entrance fee or any other regular revenue source, the Muir Valley needs a little help from the people that care about it.This benefit event will support the Friends of the Muir Valley, a group that works to raise money for the yearly operating and maintenance expenses that the Valley requires. The society is also working towards obtaining ownership of the Muir Valley, and truly making the Valley the property of its people. At the Friends of the Muir Valley Benefit, with only a $5 donation, you can help the Valley thrive.You’ll also have the opportunity to meet two determined climbers well on their way to making outdoor sports history. Mark and Janelle Smiley, a married couple intent on completing the “Fifty Classic Climbs of North America” will be available at the benefit to explain their experiences, talk about what the Muir Valley means to them, and enjoy the fun right along with you. The Smileys have already climbed forty-four of the fifty top routes across the country, and are on track to be the first to meet the full challenge.Join these accomplished climbers, as well as everyday outdoor enthusiasts, to appreciate the Muir Valley and give back to an irreplaceable natural gem.last_img read more

California jury convicts former CU employee of insider fraud

California jury convicts former CU employee of insider fraud

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading » Following a three-day trial, a Los Angeles jury found a former credit union employee guilty Monday of 15 felony counts of conspiracy to commit insider fraud and financial institution fraud that led to more than $1.2 million in losses.Indira Mohabir, 42, of La Palma, who worked as a business loan processor from 2013 to 2015 at the then Western Federal Credit Union — now the $2.9 billion Unify Financial Credit Union in Torrance — is scheduled to be sentenced in April.Trial evidence showed that Mohabir opened in secret and without authority nearly $3 million in lines of credit for her online boyfriend, Phillip Cook, 51, who had been living South Euclid, Ohio during the three-year scheme. Cook quickly drew down on the credit lines opened by Mohabir, which led to more than $1.2 million in losses for the credit union, according to federal prosecutors.Through a dedicated hotline for business members, Mohabir met Cook and they quickly became involved in a romantic relationship. Cook lured the former credit union employee with flowers, promised to take her on exotic trips and mailed her gifts including a $50,000 check drawn on the credit lines that she earlier opened for him – a check that was intercepted at the credit union, according to trial evidence.last_img read more

Clippers’ Paul Pierce looking forward to final season

Clippers’ Paul Pierce looking forward to final season

first_imgPierce turns 39 in October and averaged career lows in points, rebounds and minutes a season ago and wrestled with the decision whether to join Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett in retirement or return for another year on the Clippers.“Why not give it one more shot?” he said.After working the NBA Finals as a television analyst, Pierce certainly had options for the upcoming year, and it wasn’t until August that he fully committed to any of them.I think that’s the hardest part, what people don’t understand is the summertime is motivation, how willing you’re willing to work for the upcoming season, and I think as older players, once you see that drive fall off in the summer, then I think it’s time to hang it up,” he said. “Early in the summer, I really didn’t feel like getting up, going to the gym, working out, but as the summer progressed and I thought about the year and I thought about the players, and I was like, last season kind of left a bad taste in my mouth with how it ended, how I played. So I just wanted to kind of go out on my own terms and have one more opportunity to win a championship with this group.”Pierce’s role won’t be much different from a year ago, with Doc Rivers saying he’ll probably spend more time playing power forward, fighting for minutes with Blake Griffin, new additions Marreese Speights and Brandon Bass, returning small-ball options Wesley Johnson and Luc Mbah a Moute and rookie Brice Johnson. PLAYA VISTA >> Paul Pierce sat on stage at the Clippers’ facility a year ago, with hopes on being a major contributor and dreams of bringing a title parade to the streets of Los Angeles.One media day later the tone was much different.Pierce, who earlier in the day announced that he’d retire from the NBA following the upcoming season, his 19th, joked with teammates and talked about soaking everything in on the last stop of his career before it finally wraps up and possibly being elected into the Hall of Fame.Instead of just focusing on rings, Pierce will take in the dinners, the jokes in the locker room and even his final media day. Like Pierce, Rivers, his longtime coach, will take stock of the little things in their final journey through a NBA season together.“You know, someone asked me what will Paul leave as a legacy, and I told — I think more kids should actually watch Paul Pierce play than some of the other players because of the way he plays,” Rivers said. “Paul is not going to be ina lot of highlights, but when you watch how he played, and fundamentally how well he played, I think that’s actually what kids should really watch is how he did it without using his athleticism that he actually has.”Clippers a superteam?Pierce, who was part of a so-called Big Three in Boston, knows plenty about the NBA’s superteam phenomena he helped start. In the East, there’s Cleveland, with Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love and, of course, LeBron James. The Knicks have cobbled together some older, injury-prone former stars to try and compete.Out West, Kevin Durant’s choice to join the Golden State Warriors certainly makes a super successful team (a NBA record 73 wins) even more super.But instead of being intimidated, Pierce pointed out the Clipper team, one with Blake Griffin, Chris Paul, DeAndre Jordan, J.J. Redick and Jamal Crawford, is pretty super too.“This could very well easily be what’s considered a superteam,” Pierce said.Rivers said he’s confident with the Clippers’ core and thinks they’re in contention.“I like our team. I think we can play with anybody, and we don’t feel like there’s a gap. But that’s all we have to prove, and I think everyone has to prove that. I know history very well in this league, and there’s been a lot of superteams put together, quote-unquote, superteams, and I know the history. I feel comfortable where we’re at.”NotesGriffin and Paul, who both had their postseason cut short with injuries, said they’re 100 percent healthy for the start of training camp Tuesday. …Griffin said the Clippers will discuss the possibility of joining the growing number of athletes protesting social injustices. “Whatever we do, I think we all agreed we’re going to do it together,” he said. “It’s not going to be one or two guys or an individual thing. I think we’ll make a statement as a team because that’s kind of always the best way to make a statement.” …The Clippers rounded out their training camp roster by signing Los Angeles native Dorell Wright and guard Xavier Munford. The Clippers have the maximum 15 guaranteed contracts for next season and would need to waive or trade a player to make room for one of the two. center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
