Dublin turns back Granada, stays tied atop EBAL standings with two games left

DUBLIN — With Dublin’s advantage over Granada down to one point late in the third quarter Saturday night, Donovan Cooks did what seniors aim to do on Senior Night. He took charge. Cooks scored on a three-point play. He followed that with another basket. Then, as time was about to expire to end the period, he launched a 3-pointer from the top of the arc. Swish. Yes, it was that kind of game for the bearded guard. Cooks finished with 25 points as Dublin — ranked ninth by the Bay Area News Group — held off eighth-ranked Granada 67-60 in East Bay Athletic League play. The Gaels improved to 17-7 overall and 6-1 in the league. Granada dropped to 16-7, 3-4 after losing its third consecutive EBAL game, all by single digits. Dublin coach Tom Costello couldn’t say enough about Cooks after his team finished a week that included road games against San Ramon Valley and Amador Valley without a loss. “Too many to list,” Costello said when asked about Cooks’ contributions. “Leadership, defense, rebounding, high IQ, hits big shots, wants the ball, hits free

Two deputies ‘relieved of duty,’ under investigation after Tyre Nichols arrest video release: sheriff

(The Hill) – Two deputies in Shelby County, Tennessee, who responded to the scene of Tyre Nichols’ arrest have been “relieved of duty” and are under investigation, following the release of footage on Friday night of the encounter that resulted in Nichols’ death. “Having watched the videotape for the first time tonight, I have concerns about two deputies who appeared on the scene following the physical confrontation between police and Tyre Nichols,” Shelby County Sheriff Floyd Bonner, Jr., said in a statement issued Friday night. Bonner added that both deputies have been relieved of duty pending the results of an internal investigation into their conduct. Lawmakers react to ‘brutal and violent killing’ of Tyre Nichols, call for justice after video of arrest released Five Memphis police officers were fired last week over Nichols’ death and were charged on Thursday with second-degree murder and other crimes.

Video footage of the ensuing incident released on Friday showed officers pepper-spraying, tasing and beating Nichols.  Those officers and others who later

Tyre Nichols remembered as beautiful soul with creative eye: ‘Everyone loved him’

On most weekends, Tyre Nichols would head to the city park, train his camera on the sky and wait for the sun to set. “Photography helps me look at the world in a more creative way. It expresses me in ways I cannot write down for people,” he wrote on his website. He preferred landscapes and loved the glow of sunsets most, his family has said. “My vision is to bring my viewers deep into what I am seeing through my eye and out through my lens,” Nichols wrote. “People have a story to tell, why not capture it.” Tyre Nichols videos show what happened in fatal Memphis traffic stop beating Nichols, a 29-year-old father, was on his way home from taking pictures of the sky on Jan. 7, when police pulled him over. He was just a few minutes from the home he shared with his mother and stepfather, when he was killed in what authorities have described as a brutal attack by five Memphis police officers, who have since been charged with second-degree murder and other offenses. “Nobody’s perfect, nobody. But he was damn near,”

Photos from the scene show the front of the vehicle severely damaged. No injuries were reported from this incident.

WARNING: The video below features graphic and explicit footage of the attack. Some viewers may find the content disturbing. SAN FRANCISCO, California (NewsNation) – In a call described as “chilling and bizarre,” David DePape, the man accused of the hammer attack on Paul Pelosi from last year, phoned into a television station’s newsroom on Friday to say “you’re welcome.” DePape, 42, called KTVU reporter Amber Lee from San Francisco County jail in California, where he is being held on charges of attempted murder and elder abuse. He has pleaded not guilty. DePape’s call to Lee, the news outlet said, was unexpected. He did not allow Lee to challenge his statements, or ask follow-up questions. During the call, DePape said he wanted to “apologize” for not going further in the attack. “I’m so sorry I didn’t get more of them. It’s my own fault. No one else is to blame. I should have come better prepared,” he said, according to KTVU.  Reverend calls for systemic change after Tyre Nichols’ death The attack happened on Oct. 28, while Paul Pelosi, husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, was

Why parents may see a smaller tax return this year

(NEXSTAR) – If inflation wasn’t bad enough, it’s shaping up to be a year of disappointing tax refunds for many people, perhaps especially for parents. Among the changes this year are sizable reductions to two tax credits that gave parents a financial boost on their refunds during the pandemic but are now being rolled back to previous levels. The child and dependent care credit, designed to help working parents pay for child care, was raised to a maximum of $4,000 for one qualifying individual, and $8,000 for two. As a refundable credit, you could still get the credit even if you didn’t owe any tax or have any income to report. Why you may receive a much lower income tax refund this year Unfortunately for parents, the expanded credit, instituted as part of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, has been reduced to a nonrefundable maximum of $1,050 for one qualifying person, and $2,100 for two. Another boon for parents last year, the child tax credit, has fallen back to $2,000 for children regardless of age. For 2021 filers, the credit was $3,600 for
