DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – Iowa Democratic Party officials have agreed to hire two high-profile lawyers to investigate the factors leading to a meltdown in the state’s lead-off presidential caucuses and how the party responded.The party’s State Central Committee voted during a teleconference call Thursday night to spend up to $50,000 to retain Nick Klinefeldt, a former U.S. attorney, and Bonnie Campbell, a former Iowa attorney general, according to The Des Moines Register. Both lawyers are Democrats.The committee approved the action despite concerns voiced by some of its more than 40 members that such an investigation should be headed by people with no affiliation to the Iowa Democratic Party and that more time was needed before starting such an investigation.Officials said they hoped the review would be completed in 45 days or less.The Iowa Democratic Party has been reeling since the night of the caucuses Feb. 3 when problems with a mobile app and other issues prevented it from releasing results. It took until Feb. 6 for the party to release what it called complete results, but The Associated Press hasn’t declared a winner because it lacks confidence in the accuracy of those numbers.On Wednesday, Iowa Democratic Party Chairman Troy Price announced his resignation, saying the party “deserved better than what happened on caucus night.”The State Central Committee is scheduled to name an interim chair Saturday.
Girl international Alice Hewson staged a stunning fightback to win the Critchley Salver by a stroke at Sunningdale. She was lying 23rd after the first round, when she shot five-over par 80 on the New Course. But she came straight back with a six-under 68 on the Old Course, which included two eagles, and she pipped Lincolnshire champion India Clyburn by a shot. Her father, Dominic, reported: “She was quite despondent after the first 18 holes, but she went out and did a few putting drills from Robbo (Steve Robinson, the head England women’s coach) to give her back her confidence – and she came out with all guns blazing.” The 16-year-old from Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, was seven under through 12 holes and, although she bogeyed 16 and 17, she signed off with a two-putt birdie on the long 18th. Earlier in the round Alice’s highlights included an eagle three on the first, where she chipped in, and an eagle two on the ninth, where she drove the green and holed her putt. She also drove the par four 12th and two-putted for a birdie. Alice was playing in the event for the first time and her preparations had been interrupted by torrential rain, which meant she could only walk the New Course in practice. So far this season Alice has been fitting her golf around her AS exam commitments. But, as the Telegraph BMW girls’ champion, she was able to play alongside Paul McGinley in the pro-am which preceded last week’s BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth. Also in the fourball was Telegraph boys’ winner, Ashton Turner (Kenwick Park), and commentator Andrew Cotter. “Alice played great,” said Dominic. “She enjoyed her England training immensely throughout the winter and she’d like to thank everyone for how much they have helped her in the off-season and taken her game forward.” Alice trains with the England Golf Girls’ Squad.

Dave Chappelle donates P1 million to Taal relief operations The KaTropa have had a relatively shaky performance this conference, pulling off close shaves against GlobalPort, Phoenix, and Ginebra before suffering a tough defeat to the Aces.Racela praised how coach Alex Compton was able to stable the ship for Alaska so far, and for him, it should be the benchmark for TNT in terms of playing consistently.“That’s something that we are trying to learn and in a way, be at the level of Alaska in terms of consistency when we play. Obviously we’re not yet there, but it’s still a long conference,” he said.Racela, however, expects the KaTropa to perform better in the coming games, beginning on Friday against Blackwater.“Moving forward, hopefully we get better as we go along. Again, you get three wins in four, where are we? Did you expect us to win all our games? So we should be happy,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT Winfrey details her decision to withdraw from Simmons film Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Nash Racela.

Christopher Tolkien, son of Lord of the Rings author, dies aged 95 Denmark gets an extra day off and plays Group D winner Croatia on Sunday evening in Nizhny Novgorod.QUOTABLE“The team that only got three points, Peru, probably played the best in our group,” Denmark coach Hareide, happy to advance from a tough pool.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. LATEST STORIES France was already sure to advance with two opening victories, and this result spread the happiness to Denmark and its thousands of fans who stayed to dance and cheer in an empty stadium.Less happy were the neutral fans in the crowd. Many Russians cheered the host team’s name and whistled misplaced passes and slow play as the game progressed with Denmark protecting its one point for a draw.It was the longest a World Cup had gone without a goalless draw since 1954, a tournament of 26 games which all delivered at least one goal.“We didn’t have to take risks to get better because this result was good for everyone,” France coach Didier Deschamps said.Deschamps rested six starters to put out a team that barely tested Denmark goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel until substitute Nabil Fekir tried two long-range shots.ADVERTISEMENT It was a mostly forgettable first major tournament start for France goalkeeper Steve Mandanda, who has been a backup at two World Cups and three European Championships. The 33-year-old made his only save in the 54th minute, spilling Christian Eriksen’s free-kick before pouncing on the loose ball.France’s first-choice goalkeeper and captain, Hugo Lloris, was among those given the day off. Midfielders Paul Pogba and Blaise Matuidi were obvious choices to sit after collecting yellow cards in a 1-0 win over Peru. A second yellow card before the semifinals triggers a one-game ban.“I want to have all my choices in the round of 16,” Deschamps said. His team lost rhythm with a different trio of attacking midfielders to support Antoine Griezmann and Olivier Giroud.Perhaps sensing it was time to make entertainment midway through the first half, fans created a wave that made three laps of the stadium.Whistles and jeers got louder after a misplaced pass in the 64th by France midfielder Thomas Lemar went off the field 10 yards (meters) away from any player.Only in the final 20 minutes, when Fekir and Kylian Mbappe came off the bench, did France show more pace and direct intent. They met a solid Danish defense content with the draw.KEY TO SUCCESSDenmark has a tough defense anchored by veteran captain Simon Kjaer, and a high-class goalkeeper in Kasper Schmeichel. Even the top World Cup teams will have difficulty scoring against the Danes.GROUP DYNAMICSFrance has won Group C and will open the round 16 on Saturday afternoon in Kazan, playing Group D runner-up Argentina.

The Mahaica Mahaicony Abary-Agricultural Development Authority (MMA-ADA) is now threatening to take legal action against scores of farmers within Region Five (Mahaica-Berbice), who utilise drainage and irrigation services but fail to pay required charges for same, as agreed.General Manager of MMA-ADA, Aubrey CharlesThis intention was disclosed by General Manager of the MMA-ADA, Aubrey Charles on the sidelines of a signing ceremony between the Authority and the Guyana Public Service Union (GPSU) on Tuesday.The General Manager, whilst engaging the media on the challenges faced by his entity pointed out that rice farmers within the Mahaica-Berbice region have adopted a habitual behaviour of not paying service charges on time. He added that farmers presently owe in excess of $1 billion for irrigation and drainage services.“Farmers are required to pay charges for the management and maintenance of all drainage and irrigation works. One of the big challenge that we face currently is farmers are not paying their rates in a timely manner. Matter of fact, farmers currently owes the MMA in excess of one billion dollars and that is causing a big strain on the Authority [to] maintain all the drains, canal structures with the limited resources that are available at our disposal,” Charles stated.The MMA-ADA official further explained that a number of farmers have recently begun expressing worries over the rapidly deteriorating state of main roadways into rice lands. But according to him, the roads cannot be fixed without monies being spent. Nevertheless, Charles made mention of the Authority’s efforts to rehabilitate the roadways given that the farmers account for over 45 per cent of the country’s overall rice production.“A group of farmers came and they met with me, and they were pointing out the deterioration of the road network. I had to inform them that the maintenance of all the drainage and irrigation as well as the roads, it cost about fourteen million dollars per month and the farmers are not paying, they’re way behind the fourteen million which it cost to operate and maintain the system….So, on one hand, the MMA is trying its best so as to make the roads accessible and on the other hand, we appeal to farmers to pay their charge,” he explained.On this note, the General Manager underscored that the MMA-ADA will take legal action against the farmers to have them pay in full the outstanding monies owed to the entity. This, however, is the Authority’s last choice but will be resorted to if the monetary figures keep increasing“Of course yes, that option is last resort and we have been appealing to farmers, we’ve wrote them letters and as we speak, we have a list which we are fine-tuning it and those persons whose name appear on that list will be taken to court so that we can have our monies to run the system.”

The former Atletico Madrid, Liverpool and Chelsea striker finished his career at Japanese club Sagan Tosu after joining the J-League side last year.“I have a high demand of myself — I always want to be honest and perform at the level I think I should,” said Torres, who scored Spain’s winning goal in the 2008 European championships and played a key role in their 2010 World Cup triumph.“Knowing my body and listening to my body, I think, especially mentally, that time (when I can’t perform at the top level) is not far and I wanted to end my career in a good way before that happens.Sagan Tosu forward Fernando Torres (L) and Minoru Takehara (R), president of the J-League football club Sagan Tosu, leave after a press conference in Tokyo © AFP / Kazuhiro NOGI“I always gave everything I had and I still will give in the next two months,” added Torres, whose last game will be against former Spain team mate Andres Iniesta’s Vissel Kobe on August 23.Torres tweeted his retirement on Friday, saying: “After 18 exciting years, the time has come to put an end to my football career.”He left Atletico last summer to play in Japan after returning to his boyhood club in 2015 but has struggled with form and injuries.Torres, dubbed “El Nino” during his heyday, played 334 times in total for Atletico, scoring 111 goals.He made 142 appearances for Liverpool, finding the net 81 times in his prime, before joining Chelsea where he scored 45 goals in 172 matches for the London club.Fernando Torres, dubbed “El Nino” during his heyday, played 334 times in total for Atletico, scoring 111 goals © AFP/File / Roberto SCHMIDTAsked about the future, Torres told a news conference in Tokyo he would continue in an advisory role for Sagan, likely identifying Spanish youth players for the Kyushu club.He also did not rule out becoming a manager or coach back in Europe.“I just need time to spend with my family and think about my next step — I don’t know if it will be coaching or managing,” said Torres, who named his former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard as the best he had ever played alongside.“I think I will study both things, and just wait for the call.”Torres also remains open to the idea of another emotional return to Atletico in the future, after earning his coaching badges.“When I was a kid, I got a calling to become a football player,” said Torres.“I’m sure this kind of calling comes too.

We believe Klopp will continue to reward Wijnaldum and allow him to keep his place in the Reds’ first XI.Fabinho himself has indicated that he’s been told he will have to compete for his place if he is to earn a spot in Liverpool’s first team.“When I came to Liverpool I knew this competition would exist in midfield,” the Brazilian explained, “And I think it’s really good for the team.“If anything happens to a player, there’s adequate cover. During pre-season I played alongside a variety of different players and we blended really well. So, overall, I think it’s a good thing for the team.” silverware ALTERED Meanwhile, Palace also got off to a good start, picking up three points at Fulham with a 2-0 victory.The Reds will be looking to keep up their 100% start and stay in touch with Manchester City who are top of the league following their impressive 6-1 demolition of Huddersfield on Sunday.The match, which is an 8pm kick-off on Monday, will be an interesting test of Jurgen Klopp’s resolve, as Fabinho has now had more time to prepare himself for a Premier League start, but the manager could surely have no justification for displacing Georginio Wijnaldum after a competent performance against West Ham.Here’s talkSPORT’s predicted line-up: NEW ERA How Arsenal could line up in Arteta’s first official game in charge – Ozil return?
