If the fashion for iced biscuits had been on the wane, The Biscuiteers have single-handedly made it their mission to revive the tradition in the UK.Having been inspired by highly decorated biscuit creations on a visit to New York, founder Sarah Moore and partner Stevie were inspired to start a bakery business in 2007. Now supplying many of the upmarket department stores in Britain, Moore has put pen to paper to share some of their product inspirations.As befits a largely gift-orientated business, many of the ideas here are seasonal, with clever twists such as biscuit advent calendars. While there are plenty of fashion cookies (dresses and shoes), it’s not all cutesy, with blokey biscuits for dads.With the Royal wedding approaching, why not try the ingenious bunting biscuits: Union Jack-decorated and hanging along a cord?
The Sunman-Dearborn Middle School Trojans hosted the Franklin County Wildcats for two explosive football games on Tuesday evening.The 7th grade squads were first to battle, but it ended up being a one sided fight. The Trojans had 257 total offensive yards on the night. The Trojan quarterback was 4 for 4 in the air with 87 yards, and the ground game saw 22 carries for 170 yards. Leading rusher was Devon Donawerth who averaged over 11 yards per carry. Four Trojans found the end zone; Devon Donawerth (2TD), Andrew Struewing (2TD), Trevor Becker (1TD) and David Badescu (1TD). The Wildcats did score one touchdown on a long run, however when the clock finally ran down, the Trojans had won the contest 40-6.Up next was the 8th grade teams and the result was much the same as the 7th grade. Isaiah Wheat led the offense to 265 total yards to the Wildcats 76. Wheat completed 6 of 11 passes for 142 yards, and handed to ball off 18 times to multiple Trojans for another 123 yards. Four Trojans punched their way into the end zone; Alex Maxwell (2TD), Liam Jones (1TD), Eric Rosemeyer (1TD) and Jack Hutchins (1TD). The Wildcats showed signs of scoring late in the game with great efforts, notably from Adam Mohr, but the Trojan defense was too much to overcome. The night ended with a 34-0 Trojan victory.Both teams face very tough Ryle, Kentucky, teams this Thursday.Courtesy of Trojans Football Director of Operations Stewart Durham.
He hopped to Kitante Hill School for a year and then Ntanda College School. By Senior Four, he was again spotted while playing for Nsambya Old Timers by the Late Lukwago to join SC Villa. It was a dream come true the youngster.“I dint know that I would even ever get a chance to play but Coach Micho had seen great potential in me,” he says.It is here that Onyango started to get opportunities for the national team and under 20s. He, however, kept in school at Kampala Citizen’s College School and later joined Makerere University Business School until he dropped out to go play for St George in Ethiopia. Then he moved to South Africa for Super Sport Mpumalanga Black Ace and on to Mamelodi Sundowns. Onyango says he has matured in attitude as a player at Sundowns and achieved a lot. He is considering a coach career when he retires from active playing.He maintains that Ugandan football still lacks building foundations through soccer development academies that can help feed into the many soccer clubs.“It is good to mould and train our own material rather than just picking up mature players because clubs are demanding but also the passion of football must be worked on not only for the national team but for all clubs and teams,” he says. He is married to a longtime friend, Barbra Namubiru with whom they have four boys.Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2 Kampala, Uganda | AGNES NANTABA | He is the only goal keeper and the first Ugandan to achieve the feat of African-based Footballer of the Year, to which he was voted in January 2016. The final tally saw Dennis Onyango pick up 252 votes, compared to 228 votes for second place Khama Billiat. He was also ranked as the tenth best goalkeeper in the world in list for 2016 compiled by the International Federation of Football History & Statistics. Even with such heights, 33 year old Mamelodi Sundowns and Uganda Cranes goalkeeper maintains a low and humble character.“I was raised in a very poor family so we earned most things through other people’s kindness,” he says, “Football is like any other occupation that requires discipline and respect of other people because you bank on their support.”At a young age, Onyango picked on goalkeeping after admiring then great goalkeeper Sadiq Wasswa who is now a coach. At the time, Onyango started playing for Sharing Youth Centre.He says although footballers are still famous today and support for the game is big, it is nothing like it was in the past.“Back then people would even leave work early to go and support their teams,” he says, “I also wanted to be famous.”When big teams like Express FC, KCCA, Villa and others were playing at Nakivubo Stadium in Kampala, Onyango would be among the thousands of spectators. Eventually his persistence paid off for then young goal keeper as football earned him bursaries and scholarships. In primary seven, Onyango left Railways Primary School and joined Greenland Islamic Primary School soon after being spotted as a talented sports boy. Sports soon affected his academic performance but he did not give up. His father, who saw education as the only path to success was always negative about the football, but Onyango had an uncle and mother who supported him.

An avid fisherman recently made an annual return to Clear Lake and wound up reeling in a potential all-tackle world record.Vacaville native and chiropractor Sean Moffett was fishing for trophy bass on his boat Saturday morning accompanied by his wife Stacy to celebrate their 29th wedding anniversary.Instead of a monster bass, however, he unexpectedly caught a mammoth catfish that was far too big for his 18-inch net. “I saw the tail come out of the water and it was a dinosaur,” Moffett said. …

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest A U.S. District Court this week dismissed a lawsuit brought by the Humane Society of the United States and other activist groups against the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, alleging the agency would not regulate confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs).The groups requested in 2009 that EPA begin rulemaking under the Clean Air Act (CAA) to regulate air emissions from CAFOs. The U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia Circuit threw out the case because the plaintiffs didn’t give EPA 180-days’ notice of their intent to sue, which is required by the CAA. In 2006, nearly 1,900 pork producers and other livestock and poultry farmers entered into a series of legally binding consent agreements with EPA, settling what the agency believed were issues with air emissions associated with livestock production.Part of the agreements was a study of emissions from farms. Purdue University conducted the study and gave the data to EPA, which has been reviewing it and working to develop a tool producers can use to estimate air emissions. That process was impeded by the same activist groups that brought the lawsuit when they opposed efforts by the livestock industry to help set up a science advisory panel of experts in animal systems to assist with EPA’s effort. The agency’s existing science advisory board issued findings on the emissions data in 2013, saying they were “unreliable.” HSUS indicated it would refile the lawsuit after providing the 180 days’ notice.
