MANCHESTER: England head coach Chris Silverwood has vowed to put out their best bowling attack for the third and final Test against West Indies beginning Friday at the Old Trafford.The series currently stands evenly poised after West Indies won the first Test in Southampton by four wickets and England won the second in Manchester by 113 runs. “We want to win this game and will put out our strongest attack,” Silverwood told reporters as per Daily Mail. “I’ll speak to (national selector) Ed Smith and Rooty (skipper Joe Root) and we will make a plan. It’s never easy, and you’re going to get pushback, but if you’re in a position where you can leave out world-class players, that’s good for English cricket,” he added. England have so far resisted the idea of playing veteran pacers Stuart Broad and James Anderson together. Also the return of Jofra Archer leaves the team management with a lot of options while deciding on the playing XI. “It’s not as clean cut as that,” Silverwood said regarding Anderson-Broad potential reunion for the final Test. “I think it was right to leave Jimmy out of the last Test. We have to try to look after him so when he does play, he can perform for us. “We’ve been in touch with him (Archer) all the way through the Test. As we’ve said, we try to look after our players to the best of our ability. “Their well-being is our top priority so Jofra has been looked after and I think he’ll be glad to be back with us. He’s done his five days, his Covid tests are negative and he’ll integrate back into the squad,” the head coach added. England need to win the upcoming contest to win back the Wisden Trophy while even a draw for the visitors will help them retain the title as Jason Holder’s troops had earlier won the series in Caribbean Islands.

Already a popular destination for students looking for a bite to eat, the 29th Street Café building might also become a popular choice for students looking for university-owned housing.Home sweet home · The residences in the 29th Street Café building will soon be owned by USC Housing. Though plans for the building are tentative, the acquisition will supply USC Housing with 10 additional beds. – Ben Rolnick | Daily Trojan In late December, USC Housing completed the purchase of the building that includes the 29th Street Café — commonly known as the 2-9 — hoping to add about 10 more beds for students. USC Housing is currently working with contractors to determine exactly how the residential space will be used. It hopes to have students living on the second and third floors of the building, above the cafe, by Jan. 1, 2011.USC Housing purchased the 5,688-square-foot Victorian home, which USC has named the Hoover Street Residence (HSR), from alumni Edward and Ann Dorr, who chose to sell the property for financial reasons. The Dorrs’ real estate company, North University Park Properties, rents about 20 buildings in the USC area.The 2-9 itself is owned by Larry Odell, who bought the cafe from the Dorrs in 2008.Odell said the decision to sell the building was surprising and rushed.Ann Dorr contacted him and fellow tenant CDI Management, a property management company, in mid-November with interest in selling immediately, he said. At about the same time, Dorr contacted USC Auxiliary Services Associate Senior Vice President Dan Stimmler, who considers property sale offers before presenting proposals to the university president and cabinet for final approval.Neither tenant had interest in purchasing the building, leaving USC Housing with the opportunity to buy the property and become the new landlord.“The building presents some interesting challenges to convert as much as possible to student housing,” said Daniel Moran, associate director of North Campus Housing. “We want to explore improving as much as we can while being careful of dollars spent. We’ve got to work with the space provided and figure out how to best suit everyone, including the current tenants.”Moran said the planning process should be finished by May 31, with the construction of three double-bedrooms and four singles slated to begin in June.Besides Odell, a number of other tenants currently occupy the space.Three students currently live on the third floor of the building; two of them will be released from their leases after they graduate this semester. Moran said the third student would be provided alternative housing in the fall and would move back to HSR next spring.CDI occupies most of the third floor and part of the second floor, but its lease ends July 31.Odell’s leases for a second-floor office and the first-floor space containing the 2-9 expire mid-2013, but he could choose two five-year options after that.Despite daily offers from property sellers, USC Housing Director Keenan Cheung said HSR is USC’s first real estate purchase of the school year. One of the most important factors in choosing to purchase the building was that, unlike other properties, the HSR will not require much repair work.Cheung said USC was primarily interested in the building because of its location, but he added that the prospect of eventually having a restaurant in the building was also enticing.A USC Auxiliary Services survey issued Jan. 26 to students living in North University Park sought reviews of the 2-9. One question asks, “If you could make the 2-9 into any Mexican food restaurant you wanted, what would it be?”Odell said he has no involvement with the survey and said he’s unclear about USC’s intentions regarding the 2-9 when his lease ends.“I used to own a Mexican restaurant, and I thought about making the 2-9 a Mexican restaurant,” Odell said. “But I have no intention of messing with anything because we are doing a huge amount of food here.”Cheung said there are no plans to change the 2-9, and the survey is aimed at learning about its food quality and selection.“We are taking over a building with a food venue we don’t control and wanted to learn more about the experience from the student perspective,” he said.Also unchanged is the inability to swipe USCards at the 2-9. Though Odell said revenues could increase more than $15,000 per month if he could accept USCard, Auxiliary Services only allows USC-owned restaurants to accept them.Adriana Arango, a sophomore majoring in public relations, said she wouldn’t want to see the 2-9 changed and wouldn’t be opposed to living above the 2-9 if it were affordable.“It would be strange to live on top of a food place because of the odors and the noise, but there’s demand,” she said.Michael Sahm, a senior majoring in business administration, said he agreed.“As long as it’s nice and affordable, I think people would be interested,” he said.Although the Los Angeles County Assessor’s Office valued HSR at $1.071 million in 2003, housing officials declined to comment on the purchase price.Moran only said, “We got the building gift-wrapped and handed to us, and now we’re trying to make the most of it.”
Senior forward Leah Pruitt (center) celebrates by embracing her teammates after scoring a goal in the 2017 season. (Emily Smith | Daily Trojan)After their 1-0 victory on the road against UC Irvine to start the season on Aug. 16, the Women of Troy will face off against Cal Poly for the home opener on Friday, Aug. 24 at 3 p.m. On Sunday, the Trojans will travel to Malibu for a 1 p.m. matchup against the Pepperdine Waves.It was a hard-fought battle for the Trojans at UC Irvine, but they managed to claim the victory. UC Irvine won the Big West Conference last season, and came in ranked first in the conference during preseason. To claim this victory on the road is an impressive feat for the Women of Troy and a solid way to start the season.“Today was a really tough battle against Irvine, they played extremely well,” head coach Keidane McAlpine said. “It’s exactly what we needed to start the year. We showed some toughness and got the goal that we needed in front of a great crowd on the road and found a way to win.”Redshirt junior Natalie Jacobs was the key player for the Trojans against the Anteaters as she netted the only goal of the game. Jacobs recently joined the Women of Troy as a transfer student from Notre Dame, where she led her team in goals in 2017. The goal was special for Jacobs not only because it helped the team win, but also because it occurred on her birthday. “Actually, I prayed, before [the goal], I’m not even kidding!” Jacobs said. “And then Leah sends a perfect ball, and I kind of blacked out for a second, and then it went in.”The goal came off of an assist from senior forward Leah Pruitt. Pruitt will play an important role for the Trojans this season, as she has already scored 10 goals and has assisted on 12 more in her career. She was a part of the 2016 team which won the national championship, and earned All Pac-12 second team honors last season.In the team’s first game of the weekend, the Women of Troy will host Cal Poly at McAlister Field at 3 p.m. on Friday. Cal Poly, ranked eighth in the Big West preseason coaches poll, had a goalless draw against Marquette last Thursday. The Mustangs are coming off of a 7-9-3 season last year, but the Trojans have yet to beat the Mustangs in their last three matchups. Senior defender Chelsea Barry is a player to watch for Cal Poly in Friday’s game. The talented defender was named to the Big West Preseason All-Conference team, and will look to lead her team from the back this season. She will try to keep a clean sheet against the Women of Troy on Friday and stop players like Pruitt from creating any chances at goal.Following the match against Cal Poly, the Trojans will face their toughest test of this young season as they travel to Pepperdine on Sunday for a 1 p.m. game. The Waves were ranked 18th in the preseason polls after winning back-to-back WCC titles and making the second round of the NCAA tournament last year. However, Pepperdine is yet to meet its potential this season, having been shut out against both Kansas and Texas Tech.Senior Hailey Harbison is expected to lead the Waves in this game. She was named the West Coast Conference Defender of the Year last year and this season, was named to the watch list for the MAC Hermann Trophy, the most prestigious award in women’s collegiate soccer, given to the best player in the nation. Trojans will look to continue their strong start to the season as they aim for another deep postseason run.
Juanita VanWinkieJuanita Van Winkle of Salina, formerly of Argonia died on October 11, 2013 at the age of 93. She was born on November 16, 1919 on the family farm near Vandalia, Illinois, the daughter of Homer Erastus and Leah Ceora (Lousignot) Guffey. She was one of nine children.She attended country schools and was a graduate of Vandalia High School where she developed her love of bookkeeping which lasted her entire life. At the age of 19 she met Merle “Rip” Van Winkle, a young oil field worker from Kansas on New Year’s Eve December 31, 1938 and married him on July 5, 1939 in Vandalia, Illinois.Â During the early years of their marriage they traveled together for his job in the oil fields of Illinois, Wyoming, Missouri among other states.When Rip enlisted in the service of his country for WWII, Juanita did not stay behind in the Midwest. Instead, after he shipped out of San Francisco she drove their car down Highway I to Los Angeles where she independently rented an apartment and got a job working in a bank for the duration of the war. When Rip returned home she would have liked to stay in sunny California, however, his Kansas roots ran deep and she helped him to achieve his dream of becoming a “Custom Cutter”, traveling through Arizona, Texas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Wyoming, Montana and Canada, following “the harvest trail”. This work was mainly in the summer and fall so Rip signed up for auctioneer school to help provide for his family during the other months of the year. They worked as a team and she was his faithful companion until his death June 8, 1998 after being married 59 years.She stayed at the family home in Argonia until the fall of 2004 when Juanita moved to Salina to be closer to family and got to live in a brand new apartment, the first time in her life she had ever lived in anything that was brand new. It was as if Juanita had moved into a great sorority house with girls who came to be lifelong friends. Having her hair done and dressing sharply was important to her after growing up in poverty during “the great Depression”, which she said wasn’t so “great”. She proudly said “I would never wear a pair of blue jeans if I don’t have to”. Throughout her entire life a weekly color, cut and set was a highlight. After moving to Salina she stopped the color and her family loved the beautiful white hair that resulted. Although Juanita was the ultimate hostess for many parties and holiday gatherings, after cooking in the harvest fields for 37 years her favorite quip was “don’t mess up the kitchen, let’s go out to eat”. She would always enjoy shopping and then taking everyone out to eat.As people who knew her would attest Juanita loved to get a bargain. Shopping was one of her favorite sports and back in her younger days she wouldn’t leave home without the stiletto heels that she in later years scolded her granddaughter for wearing. It comforts us to know she went to the big shopping mall in the sky. Juanitaâ€™s devotion to her Christian faith was evident to those that knew her. She has read the Bible in its entirety every year since the mid 1970â€™s and completed this years reading the Bible just a few weeks ago.Juanita is survived by her daughter, Anita Gae Van Winkle Huntley (Jack Sheahon) of Salina, grandson Zachary Douglas Huntley of Los Angeles, California, granddaughter Jessica Rose Sheahon of New York City, New York and sister Doris Bruce of Sun City, Arizona.Â She is preceded in death by her parents, husband and siblings: Sisters – Darleen Pruett in 2006, Clara Bunyard in 2006, Alberta Bruce in 2010; Brothers – Dale in 1943, Nelson in 1991, Erin in 1993 and Laurel in 2006.Graveside services for Juanita will be held at 10:00 a.m., Friday, October 18, 2013 at the Argonia Cemetery in Argonia.A memorial has been established in her loving memory with the Women Helping Women, c/o Greater Salina Community Foundation, P.O. Box 2876, Salina 67401.To share a memory or leave condolences, please visit www.dayfuneralhome.info.Arrangements are by Day Funeral Home & Crematory, Wellington.
