Here’s a perfect example of everything that is wrong with attempts to stamp out violence.From the Wanganui ChronicleAubrey Ivan James Wirihana-Curry was at home with the victim and their 6-month-old child on October 27 when an argument began, and he started smashing plates and punching holes in the gib board. He pushed his partner down and kicked her to the right side of her head, police prosecutor Sergeant Steve Hickey told the Whanganui District Court on Tuesday. She is four months pregnant, he said. When police arrived, Wirihana-Curry resisted arrest, saying he didn’t want to go to the station as he needed to look after his young child. He hit one of the officers in the face multiple times.So that’s…* Property damage* serious and violent assault* pregnant partner* violent assault of policeThe punishment? Well, if you can call it that…* 120 hours of community work (so 3 weeks)* nine months of ‘supervision’,* anger management courseMeanwhile, great mum who admits occasional smacks on the bottom gets 300 hours of community work and loses her career.We’re stuffed.
(REUTERS)-Mexico winger Hirving Lozano took advantage of an awful mix-up in the Russian defence to score an extraordinary goal which gave his side a 2-1 win and knocked the Confederations Cup hosts out of the tournament on Saturday.Russia goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev completely mis-read the situation after Hector Herrera sent a looping clearance 80 metres downfield from the edge of the Mexican area seven minutes into the second half.The ball bounced once about 25 metres from the Russian goal and, as Akinfeev and his defence dallied, Lozano bravely nipped in to head the ball over the goalkeeper from the edge of the area to send the CONCACAF champions into the semi-finals.Russia had raised the hopes of their fans by taking a first-half lead through Alexander Samedov but were quickly pegged back by Nestor Araujo’s equaliser on the half hour.Russia’s early exit from was another setback for next year’s World Cup hosts who also went out of last year’s European Championship at the group stage, when they failed to win a game and were regarded by many as the worst team in the tournament.Russia’s afternoon was completed in the 68th minute after Yury Zhirkov was sent off for elbowing and they were only saved further embarrassment by the video assistant referee who disallowed a third Mexican goal for offside.The video replay was also used in the 17th minute after Russian forward Fedor Smolov went down in the box after he appeared to come into contact with Araujo but the referee ruled against a penalty.Mexico dominated possession early on but Russia went ahead fortuitously when Samedov beat goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa just inside the far post after Mexico had failed to clear a header and midfielder Aleksandr Erokhin missed the ball as he was trying to shoot.Mexico defender Nestor Araujo equalised in the 30th minute with a looping header.The crowd seemed to sense that Russia had missed their chance and Lozano’s freak equaliser confirmed their worst fears.Mexico finished second in Group A on seven points, behind Portugal on goal difference. Russia were third with three.Russia coach Stanislav Cherchisov, a former national team goalkeeper, backed Akinfeev.“Every goalkeeper is entitled to commit mistakes and it is something you have to live with,” he told reporters. “Life will go on, this is sport and I am convinced he will remain on the national team and make his fans happy.“Passions are running high so it’s not the time to come to any conclusions,” he added. “I hope the players will use the experience to grow and develop.”

9 Nov 2012 Filey is England’s 600th GolfMark club Filey Golf Club in north Yorkshire has just become the 600th club to achieve the GolfMark, England Golf’s award for junior and beginner-friendly facilities. The GolfMark scheme, which incorporates Sport England’s Clubmark award, was launched in 2006. “We are very, very pleased to have GolfMark,” said John Spaven, who shares junior organiser duties with fellow member Trish Nicholson. “It’s extra special to be the 600th club and we are really pleased to receive this recognition. “It has been two years hard work and we appreciate the support we have had from Richard Brown, our regional development officer from England Golf.” The club has extensive links with local primary schools in Filey, Sherburn and Hunmanby and, with the help of the local Lions club, almost 200 youngsters are given a taste of golf each week on the academy course. They’re also introduced to members and to club life. In addition, Filey Golf Club offers free membership to youngsters, under the age of 18, who are the children or grandchildren of full members. The result is a thriving junior section with about 40 members and plans to encourage more girls to get into golf. “I think it’s very important to reach out in to the community and GolfMark will help us do that,” said John. Richard Flint, England Golf development manager, commented: “This is a fantastic milestone and shows the importance that golf clubs place on supporting junior and beginner golf. GolfMark clubs are also working closely with their County Golf Partnerships to help grow the game. ” County Golf Partnerships have recently nominated candidates for the GolfMark Club of the Year 2013 and the shortlisted cubs are currently being visited by the judges.

“What I really like about this team is the work ethic in practice and during all the games we played this season,” Maida explained.Maida said the players have also bought into the team philosophies needed to be successful at the junior level.“We’re also playing in a system the guys are buying into,” he said.“Everyone, including the veterans are buying into the system and the leadership group are leading the way which has led to our good start.”Leafs down to two goalies, and one of the names isn’t DefoeAnd then there were two.Impressive play in training camp and to start the season from 17-year-old backstop Cody Boeckman allowed the coaching staff to release former goalie Patrick Defoe.Defoe, from Kelowna, was penciled in as the starter prior to the season after putting together a 10-win season backing up Andrew Walton.However, the Cochrane, Alta., Boeckman stole the starting spot from Defoe with 1.00 goals against average in two games.Brett Soles of Cranbrook is the other goalie on the roster.Bad luck continues for ArcuriIf Blake Arcuri didn’t have bad luck the Nelson Minor Hockey product wouldn’t have any luck at all.After playing only 23 games last season, the 5’11”, 190-pound defenceman once again is watching from the sidelines to start the season.Arcuri is the only player on the roster on the sidelines with an injury as the Leafs enter the weekend healthy.New California recruitCenter Bryce Nielsen joined the Leafs last weekend.The Laguna Hills, CA native is expected to be in the lineup this weekend.

They’re a well-coached team so it should be a very good two-game battle.The Hawks have owned the Leafs the past two seasons after the Green and White took it to Beaver Valley the previous seasons when Maida and Simon Wheeldon coached the club.Leaf rookie a goal-scoring machineRookie Colton McCarthy is tearing up the league scoring goals. But the early success isn’t surprising Nelson’s coaching staff.“No not really,” said Maida when asked about the five-goals in six-game streak of the 16-year-old Salmon Arm sniper.“I watched him all through the spring and knew he’d do well with our team and in this league and he’s done everything I thought he would do.”McCarthy, in a three-way tie for the KIJHL goal-scoring lead, plays on a line with captain Colton Schell and Jacob Boyczuk. The trio leads Nelson with 14 points in six games.Players buying into Leafs systemIt’s week three but already Maida is smiling more than he did most of last season.Having the chance to put his mark on this team recruiting wise, the former Minor Hockey coach likes a lot of the 2012-13 Green and White edition.
