Our kids are as different as can be. Zooey is strong willed and obstinate. If  she doesn’t like it, she doesn’t do it. Case in point, eating her broccoli this evening at dinner.  No amount of prodding would convince her to do it, even if the reward was a piece of advent chocolate… though I […]

The Citrus Belt League boys basketball race looks a little different this season with perennial playoff contenders Eisenhower and Miller out of the league. And a team that has never won a league title before could be a top contender as league play opens next week. Carter was off to a 10-2 start through Thursday’s games. While that might be a regular start for many of the area’s top programs, it’s not for the Lions. In fact, Carter won only eight games all of last season, has never had a winning record and has never made the playoffs. Not only that, but third-year coach Gilbert Berry said the third-place finish in the Jurupa Hills Tournament is the program’s first trophy. “Without question, we are the favorite to win league. Our goal is to win league,” Berry said. “We are capable. Teams are going to be getting prepared for us.” The Lions are fun to watch although it might be a little frustrating for basketball purists. The Lions score an average of 93.7 points per game while allowing 76.7 points. “We’re one of the highest-scoring teams in CIF, but we give up more than most other teams,” Berry said. “We have the understanding that the ball (on offense) moves around to each other, but we haven’t really gelled defensively. They’re struggling to understand positioning.” Berry said he’s simplified the defense which began the season relying on full-court pressure, but gave up too many easy baskets. He now usually utilizes a matchup zone defense. On offense, he’s been reluctant to post individual scoring statistics to keep his players focused on team goals, but it’s still a struggle. “They all want to play the same way. They all want to be the guy,” Berry said. One guy whose game has taken a big step forward this season is Dar’vion Manning, a 6-foot-3 senior guard. “He’s a high-flier,” Berry said. “His work in the offseason translates onto the floor. He’s been able to fly above the rim.” Already one loss for Upland girls soccer team The Upland girls soccer team has already lost as many games as it did all of last season: one. Upland’s lone loss last season came in the CIF-SS Division 1 semifinals, but the Highlanders bounced back to win the CIF SoCal Regional title, finishing the season 22-1-3. This year Upland is off to a 5-1 start, dropping a 2-0 game to Los Alamitos, a perennial Division 1 playoff team. But coach Bo Whieldon expects the Highlanders to be in the thick of the Division 1 race, although there could be challenges in the Baseline League, especially from Rancho Cucamonga and Chino Hills. Upland is ranked No. 3 in Division 1. “We have most of our core back and we’ve already beaten Edison and El Dorado,” he said. “They always say, the next year after winning is way harder. It’s a lot of pressure.” One of the few growing pains for the Highlanders is breaking in a new starting goalie, sophomore Emily Vermillion. As usual, Upland schedules top tournaments in Orange County, with its next tournament the North Orange County Classic the week after Christmas. “We always want to do our best (in the tournaments), but we want to get the experience of playing the top teams,” Whieldon said. Holiday tourneys With many leagues now starting play the week before Christmas, holiday tournaments are reserved for the week after Christmas. San Gorgonio’s boys and girls soccer tournaments begin on Dec. 27, at 8:30 a.m. at the San Bernardino Soccer Complex and the three-day tournaments conclude with championship games on Dec. 29 at 1 p.m. San Gorgonio’s 24-team girls water polo tournament is co-hosted by San Gorgonio, Arroyo Valley and Indian Springs on Dec. 27-28, with the championship game at 2:40 p.m. on Dec. 28 at Indian Springs. The San Bernardino Kiwanis Tournament, steeped in tradition, and The Classic at Damien, which has quickly become one of the top tournaments in the CIF-SS, are two boys basketball tournaments that run Dec. 26-29. The Kiwanis is a 16-team tournament at San Gorgonio, Arroyo Valley and Indian Springs. The championship game is Dec. 29 at Arroyo Valley at 7:30 p.m. The Classic has four 16-team brackets and will be played in six gyms at five schools: Damien (two gyms), Bonita, Ramona Middle School, Life Pacific College and San Dimas. The Platinum Division includes Etiwanda, Chino Hills and Damien; the Gold Division includes Colony and Hesperia; the Silver Division includes Bonita, Diamond Ranch, Rancho Cucamonga, Diamond Bar and Claremont and the Bronze Division includes San Dimas, Ayala, Pomona, Alta Loma, Silverado and Kaiser.

Ramsey County Sheriff-elect Bob Fletcher named the final members of his leadership team Friday, including the addition of St. Paul police union president Dave Titus as his legislative liaison. Bob Fletcher and Dave Titus (Courtesy photos) Titus led the St. Paul Police Federation since 2001. He and the city’s mayor, however, have not met since Mayor Melvin Carter took office in January, according to Carter’s press secretary. Titus said at the beginning of the year that he was “confident a meeting will occur soon.” ADVOCATE FOR OFFICERS, FACED CRITICISM Through the years, Titus was an outspoken advocate for St. Paul officers — he pushed for better pay, saying they weren’t compensated as well as their counterparts from other departments; stressed the need for more officers; and highlighted the perils of their career. Titus also came under criticism, and some leaders called for his resignation, during the mayor’s race last year. The police federation issued a letter that criticized Carter for not providing police with serial numbers of guns stolen from his home in a burglary. In the same week, a flier from a political action committee — which was funded by the police federation and other groups — suggested a link between the stolen guns and recent gun violence in St. Paul. Then-St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman and others said the criticism of Carter, who is black, was racist and called on the federation’s board members to resign, which they did not. CHALLENGER IN UNION ELECTION A union election was previously scheduled for Jan. 8, which is the day Fletcher will be sworn in at sheriff. Titus was nominated for re-election at a union meeting in November and Sgt. Matt Koncar is also in the running for president. Titus called a special union meeting for next week. “I am still a nominee and I am not stepping down as your president at this time,” Titus wrote to federation members Friday. “However, the members will decide whether or not to re-open nominations for the position of president.” OTHER APPOINTMENTS AT SHERIFF’S OFFICE Other appointments by Fletcher include: Steve Lydon, who will be superintendent of the county jail. He worked at the Minnesota Department of Corrections for 22 years and also served nine years at the sheriff’s office. Kyle Mestad, who will be director of planning and policy. He has worked in the sheriff’s office for almost 10 years and will lead budget, human resources, procurement and planning services. Jim Moody, who will be an administrative assistant. He has worked for Ramsey County for more than 30 years and will provide administrative support for Fletcher and his leadership team. Mike Whisler, who will be program administrator for professional development. He has worked for the St. Paul Police Department for the past 17 years as an officer and sergeant and will lead professional development and serve as an executive officer for the chief deputy in his new role. The appointments will take effect on Jan. 7.[related_articles location=”left” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”automatic-primary-tag”]
