The jury was not asked to decide which theory it believed. BURBANK, Calif. (AP) — Eight months after Robert Blake was acquitted at a criminal trial of murdering his wife, a civil jury decided Friday the tough-guy actor was behind her slaying. The jury ordered the former “Baretta” star to pay the children of Bonny Lee Bakley $30 million in damages. After eight days of deliberations, the jury determined by a vote of 10-2 that Blake “intentionally caused the death” of Bakley, who was gunned down May 4, 2001 in the actor’s car outside a restaurant where the couple had just eaten. The jury decided Blake’s handyman, Earle Caldwell, did not collaborate with Blake to kill Bakley. That vote was also 10-2 against. The vote on damages was 9-3. Blake, dressed in a black suit and tie, looked down as the verdicts were read. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The Children’s Monologues is a spoken-word performance piece of soliloquies and testimonies of South African children about their country, performed by some of the biggest names in international film and television. The show had its New York debut on 13 November 2017.The Alexandra pantsula dance group Via Vyndal were personally selected by director Danny Boyle to perform in New York, in The Children’s Monologues, on 13 November 2017. (Image: Via Vyndal Facebook page)CD AndersonThe show, first performed at London’s Old Vic theatre in 2010, features a host of Hollywood and British acting royalty performing the monologues. Previous performances featured stars such as Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Nicole Kidman.For the New York show, held at the famous Carnegie Hall, performers included Anne Hathaway, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Trevor Noah. The once-off show, a benefit for Dramatic Need, an international NGO that develops the arts across Africa, was directed by Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire).The New York show also featured South African music and dance, including the international debut performance by South African pantsula dance troupe Via Vyndal.A production of the show was also performed in tandem in South Africa on the same day. Acclaimed local theatre director James Ngcobo presented the South African performance with an all-female cast of top South African actresses, including Pearl Thusi, Fiona Ramsay and Lesedi Job, at Johannesburg’s famous Market Theatre.The monologuesThe monologues were written by South African children about their experiences of living in the country. The stories are both harrowing and joyful: ranging from cherished moments of youthful exuberance to indelible accounts of young people’s struggle against violent crime and detached patriarchy. The monologues are comic and tragic, real and imagined, poignant and traumatic.“The monologues are a vehicle for audiences and actors to connect with the children and to almost see inside the children’s hearts and provide a voice of assurance that their future is not bleak and that their circumstances do not define who they are,” Ngcobo said in the run-up to the performance.Critics reviewing the New York show were impressed. Roger Friedman from Hollywood 411 wrote that it was “a five-star night that beautifully captured the spirit of South Africa [and its people]”. The Hollywood Reporter called it “a powerfully emotional presentation”. A particular highlight for the Carnegie Hall audience was the energy of Via Vyndal.Via VyndalThe New York performance was the first time the troupe, from Alexandra in Johannesburg, travelled overseas.They were personally selected by Boyle following auditions across South Africa earlier this year. Boyle said he wanted a group that exemplified the spirit of South African youth culture and he felt the Vyndals possessed an authenticity that could not be recreated, in the same way Indian street performers in his award-winning hit film, Slumdog Millionaire, had done.Via Vyndal artistic director Sicelo Xaba told TimesLive that the group were proud to represent South Africa in New York. “This is not just important for the guys going; it’s also important for pantsula as a culture and a dance form.”Lead dancer Sandile Ngqulunga hoped that the international exposure would show global and local audiences that pantsula was a positive, nation-building art form, as well as lead to more opportunities for South African dance troupes at home and abroad.Source: TimesLive, Hollywood Reporter, WikipediaWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Ohio State senior offensive lineman Billy Price (54) talks to linemen Michael Jordan (73) and Jamarco Jones (74) prior to a play in the second quarter of the B1G Championship game against Wisconsin on Dec. 2 in Lucas Oil Stadium. Ohio State won 27-21. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Managing Editor for DesignOhio State offensive line coach Greg Studrawa took no time in changing the outlook of his new unit when he was hired prior to the start of the 2016 season. After switching the most experienced guard to the center position in each of his first two seasons with the Buckeyes, Studrawa could be in a similar position with junior guard Michael Jordan heading into 2018. The third-year starter at left guard was taking snaps for the Buckeyes as a part of the second-team offensive line during fall practice. The decision to play a guard at center has become something of a trend for Studrawa. Without an obvious answer to fill the center position in 2016, Studrawa moved guard Pat Elflein to the middle.The Pickerington, Ohio native ended up thriving, winning the Rimington Trophy as the best center in college football and taking home the Rimington-Pace Offensive Lineman of the Year Award in the Big Ten. Studrawa did not stop there. After Elflein departed to the NFL, the second-year offensive line coach made the switch again, this time with fifth-year senior guard Billy Price. The outcome was the same. Price won the Rimington Trophy and was named a first-team All-American at center in 2017. Having watched both Elflein and Price move from guard to the starting center, now fifth-year center Brady Taylor seemed to be in the position to seamlessly transition into the starting role as Ohio State’s first true center since Jacoby Boren in 2015. Despite being recruited as a three-star offensive tackle in the 2014 class, Taylor has played in 29 games for the Buckeyes, recording 55 snaps against UNLV and 41 snaps against Illinois last season. As the only true freshman to start during the 2016 season, Jordan was named as a Freshman All-American in 2016 and first-team All-Big Ten team member after the 2017 season. However, the move for Jordan could be because of something not related to the center position at all. With the main objective being to get the best five offensive lineman on the field at one time, Jordan, senior tackle Isaiah Prince and redshirt senior Demetrius Knox seem to be locks on the line. Also, after playing in 12 of 14 games last season, sophomore Thayer Munford seems to be in a good position to take a starting tackle spot. With four spots filled on the line, that leaves one: center or, possibly, left guard. Studrawa has linemen with experience to fill those spots, with junior Branden Bowen coming off of a leg injury, and redshirt senior Malcolm Pridgeon, who is in in his third season with the program. When it comes down to it, the final spot on the offensive line could come down to a simple question: who is the best lineman between Bowen, Pridgeon and Taylor? If it is Pridgeon or Bowen that takes the final spot on the line and Jordan moves to center for his junior season, Studrawa can be confident that it will work out just fine. He has the track record to prove it.
Right now, Brittan Golden is fighting to make the Arizona Cardinals’ roster.The speedy receiver has appeared in five games for the team over the last two seasons — none in 2014 — and though he’s made some big plays during training camp, is in no way guaranteed a spot.But then again, the 27-year-old West Texas A&M product wouldn’t even be in position to make an NFL roster if not for his mom and dad, who supported him every step of the way. “It wasn’t really football when I was young,” Golden told Burns and Gambo on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM Tuesday. “It was more baseball, basketball. I had a couple coaches tell me ‘it’s going to be easier if you want to play football,’ so I kind of came on later in high school.“But everything I did — it didn’t matter if it was a piano lesson, a basketball game or anything I went –my parents were 100 percent behind me. If I said I wanted to do that, it was ‘If you dream it, you can do it. Just go ahead and go after your goals.’”And yes, Golden said he learned to tickle the ivories.“My mom made made me take piano lessons for three years when I was young, so I had to,” he said. “It was three years, and then you could do whatever you want.”Golden will not be the next Ludwig van Beethoven, though, as he said about all he’s able to play now is “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.”And that’s fine for a Cardinals team that would rather Golden put on a show between the white lines than in a concert hall. Still, it’s possible Golden would be in the middle of a Major League Baseball season instead if not for his mom, who worked really hard to make sure he landed at a school that could help his career. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling “Actually I had a couple calls from Division III schools and NAIA schools for baseball,” Golden said. “Football-wise, I didn’t really get recruited. My mom went to searching and she went and got some highlight tapes from my high school coaches. She sent them in and they said, ‘Hey, we’re having an open tryout at West Texas A&M.’”Obviously the tryout went well, as Golden went on to become one of the best receivers the school has ever had. He left college ranked second in school history with 3,007 receiving yards and fifth with 165 receptions. He also had 33 touchdown catches, which was tied for sixth on the all-time list. Golden excelled on special teams as well, returning 30 punts for 274 yards and 10 kickoffs for 112 yards en route to being a first-team All-LSC selection as a senior after being named second-team as a junior.It wasn’t enough to hear his name called in the 2013 NFL Draft, but that hasn’t stopped his career from moving forward. Golden said if not for his mom he would probably be playing baseball somewhere right now. Instead he’s battling to make the team, and he’s fine with that.“I feel like [Bruce Arians] and the coaches do a good job of mixing and matching, and getting us in our best situation to succeed,” he said. “Every day I just try to get better and try to put my best foot forward and let the coaches know that I can play if I have to get in the game.” Top Stories The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact 0 Comments Share The 5-foot-11, 186-pound Golden feels like he is doing that, but understands his chances of making the team may come down to math. The Cardinals will only keep so many receivers, and with Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd, John Brown, Jaron Brown and J.J. Nelson all virtual locks, it’s possible there will not be room for Golden (or one of the other young receivers currently in camp).Prior to Floyd’s injury Arians had brought up the possibility of keeping six receivers, which would seem like good news for Golden.“Keeping six receivers is always good for the receiver room because we’re so deep in there and like I’ve said before, there’s so many receivers in there that could be playing anywhere, regardless of being a number two or number three on other teams,” Golden said. “But I guess it’s probably a good problem to have for a GM or a head coach to have six or seven guys that you’re like, they could all play somewhere; we have great depth so if we have to keep six, if God forbid anything drastic happens, we have somebody that can step up and play.” – / 19
