McCarthy signs for Palace

first_img Press Association The 25-year-old stopper, who made the move to Rangers from Reading in August and made three appearances in the top flight for them last season, joins the Premier League club for an undisclosed fee. The former England Under-21 international was delighted to make the move to Selhurst Park, and told his new club’s official website “I’m over the moon. “When I first heard about Palace’s interest I was excited because I really wanted to be back in the Premier League. “Towards the end of last season I started hearing little inklings about a move and then gradually over the summer things progressed and now, here I am.” McCarthy joined Reading as a 16-year-old, making 70 league appearances for the Championship outfit – also enjoying numerous loan spells – before leaving last summer. McCarthy, who was called up to Roy Hodgson’s England squad in May 2013 for the friendlies against Republic of Ireland and Brazil, is relishing playing his home matches at Selhurst Park. He added, “Every time I’ve played at Palace the atmosphere has been brilliant; the fans are excellent and they’re so passionate about their club. I’m really excited to be here.” McCarthy becomes Alan Pardew’s third summer signing following the high-profile capture of France midfielder Yohan Cabaye, plus the arrival of striker P atrick Bamford on a season-long loan move from Chelsea. center_img Crystal Palace have completed the signing of QPR goalkeeper Alex McCarthy on a four-year deal.last_img read more

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisALPENA, Mich. — A family is still grieving over the disappearance of their daughter. A close friend filed a missing person’s report of an Alpena County woman on June 12, 2012. Michigan State Police held a press conference Thursday to give a statement to the public, nearly seven years to the day after anyone saw or heard from Lisa Marie Knight.“Lisa was just a happy person, she just loved life,” said Lisa’s father Marc Knight. “She liked horses. She dearly loved her children.” Lisa has four children. The eldest is 20 and the youngest is 8-years-old.“We don’t have any peace,” said Marc. “We haven’t had peace since Lisa went missing.”Michigan State Police held their first press conference about Lisa Knight’s disappearance Thursday morning.Detective sergeant Steve Harshberger said, “Lisa was known to be alive at the residence of her ex–husband Lloyd Frey in Ossineke. That would have been on the evening of June 8, 2012.”Investigators haven’t found a shred of evidence indicating Lisa is alive.“We firmly believe at this point that she is deceased,” said Harshberger.Police see this case as an open sore. “Sometimes the community can kind of forget it and we don’t want that to happen,” said lieutenant Travis House.Lisa’s parents, Jean and Marc Knight, are still searching for answers and hope their daughter returns home.“We have to believe that there are people out there who know something,” said Marc. A break in the case would mean Marc could once again find peace, knowing his daughter can be laid to rest.The anniversary of Lisa Knight’s disappearance is Saturday, June 8.Police will award $1,000 dollars to anyone with a lead to the resolution of this case.

Not a bad idea to cash in on the big bucks and leave the hassels of protection to Sedgwick and Sumner Counties. And let the Sumner County Taxpayers foot the burden for prosecuting them. Best thing that the County Commissioners could have done at the time of the casino reviews would have been to let Sedgwick county annex in all of the rest of Mulvane in sumner county then it would have been where all the people of sumner county wanted it.

Trump Retweets Conspiracy Theory About Epstein’s Death

first_imgPresident Trump retweeted a theory over the weekend from comedian Terrence K. Williams regarding the death of Jeffrey Epstein.According to federal officials, Epstein was not on suicide watch at the time of his death. He had been on suicide watch last month, but was later taken off, a person familiar with the matter reports.A Clinton spokesman responded on Twitter to Trump’s retweet: “Ridiculous, and of course not true – and Donald Trump knows it. Has he triggered the 25th Amendment yet?” The 25th Amendment spells out a process for the president’s Cabinet to remove him from office.White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said on “Fox News Sunday” that President Trump “just wants everything to be investigated.”She also criticized people who she says are “trying to connect the president to this monster from years ago where they are seen dancing in the video,” in reference to an NBC News video of Trump and Epstein attending a party at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate on Palm Beach in 1992. Conway adds that those individuals “were actively, I suppose, flying around with this monster on his island…Perhaps there’s a public interest in knowing more about that.”Democratic Senator and Presidential Candidate Cory Booker, of New Jersey, says Trump is “using the same tactics and languages of the Russians, if you look at the intelligence reports about how they’re coming at our democracy.” Booker calls Trump’s actions “dangerous” and says the President has “been using the Clintons as a means for a lot of his false accusations.”last_img read more
