The National Weather Service has issued a fire weather watch for Clark County beginning this afternoon.Through Tuesday evening, lowlands of the county will experience heat, wind and low relative humidity that can cause fires, according to the weather service. Wind gusts could reach up to 30 mph.Outdoor burning is not recommended while the watch is in effect.The increased fire danger comes as hot weather is expected to hit the area this week. After a high of 86 degrees today, peaks will reach 94 degrees Tuesday and 93 degrees Wednesday, according to the weather service.“We’ll probably be very close to the hottest weather we’ve seen this summer, if not the hottest,” said Colby Neuman, a meteorologist with the weather service.On Tuesday’s date, the record is 98 degrees, while the record for Wednesday is 100 degrees.“It’s within the margin of error that it could either tie or set one of those records,” Neuman said.Thursday through Labor Day weekend, highs will gradually taper closer to 80 degrees, according to the weather service. Lows throughout the week are expected to hover between 60 degrees and 65 degrees.“There is, at least, some relief on the way,” Neuman said.An area of high pressure from the Pacific Ocean combined with easterly winds will cause the heat wave, Neuman said. Areas of the county more exposed to the winds — such as Vancouver, Camas and Washougal — will see less dramatic cooling down at night, while northern locations will experience more relief from the heat.
SKAMANIA — Completed in 1918, the mile-long trail to the top of Beacon Rock is the oldest part of Beacon Rock State Park, but it represents a small fraction of what the 5,400-acre park has to offer.Even if you’re not sure exactly what you want to do for the day, heading east from Vancouver to Beacon Rock State Park will give you many options.Thirty-five miles from Vancouver, the park encompasses inland and waterfront recreation, camping and day-use areas, as well as trails that welcome people, horses and dogs.Senior Park Aide Ian Navarrette said many people are surprised to find that the park is more than just the Beacon Rock Trail.Perhaps that’s because the parking lot for Beacon Rock Trail is right along Highway 14, and the other parts of the park are somewhat hidden down side roads.All of the access roads are west of the Beacon Rock parking lot.Every area offers unique features along with trails that differ in length and difficulty. Dogs are welcome in most of the park unless otherwise posted. Restrooms are found at each trailhead.
Americans across party and demographic lines overwhelmingly support expanded background checks for gun buyers and allowing law enforcement to temporarily seize weapons from troubled individuals, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll, as President Donald Trump and Republicans face fresh pressure to act.Although the poll finds a continued partisan divide on more far-reaching gun-control proposals, public opinion is firmly behind Democrats’ push for action as Congress returns to Washington on Monday. More Americans say they trust congressional Democrats over Trump to handle the nation’s gun laws, 51 percent to 36 percent, with independents siding with Democrats by a 17-point margin – a divide that could have political ramifications for the 2020 presidential and congressional elections.Democrats and allied activists have been trying to kick-start a national push for new federal gun restrictions for weeks, since the mass shootings last month in El Paso and Dayton, Ohio. Urgency dissipated as a six-week congressional recess wore on, but the deadly rampage in West Texas on Aug. 31 has reignited the issue.The Post-ABC poll finds 86 percent of Americans support implementing “red-flag” provisions, which allow guns to be taken from people judged to be a danger to themselves or others. And 89 percent support expanding federal background checks to cover private sales and gun-show transactions. Both measures are supported by at least 8 in 10 Republicans, white evangelical Christians, members of gun-owning households and other traditionally conservative groups.More far-reaching restrictions also have majority support, the survey finds, albeit by more modest margins. Six in 10 support a federal ban on gun magazines holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition.
The four-team tournament will take place in January 2020 from the 8th to the 12th. The FA has yet to decide the hosting country.Starting in 2020 the Spanish Super Cup will have a new format and new date to be celebrated, according to the Spanish Football Association (RFEF) which announced the changes today.The new format will feature the best four teams of the Copa del Rey and the La Liga competition.If a team is in the Copa del Rey Final and in the top-two of the national competition, the place would pass down to the next team in the league.This means that the 2019 Spanish Super Cup will feature at least Barcelona, Valencia, Atletico Madrid, and Real Madrid.The tournament will also take place in January of next year, the first Semifinal will be played on January 8th, the second the next day, and the final on January 12th.The host country has yet to be decided, but according to RFEF president Luis Rubiales, there’s a possibility to take it to Saudi Arabia or the United States.“We are working on it,” said Rubiales according to Sky Sports.“Nothing has been signed. Saudi Arabia is an option and we have not denied that.”La Liga Betting: Match-day 4 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Despite it being very early into La Liga season, both Barcelona and Real Madrid have had unprecedented starts to their campaigns. With this in…“We are looking for the best thing for the teams and the players and the referees,” he added.“The United States is an option, we have had proposals from there too.”“We have to look for what would be best for everyone,” the president concluded.🗣 Alfredo Olivares, director de competiciones y de fútbol no profesional de la RFEF, explica el nuevo formato de competición de la #Supercopaℹ Más info: https://t.co/A4dFLu8VcA#AsambleaRFEF#SomosFútbol #SomosFederación📺 EN DIRECTO: https://t.co/tP49bARXDv pic.twitter.com/qWwkdVeKJa— RFEF (@rfef) April 29, 2019
Mick McCarthy couldn’t believe why would someone attack Ireland’s U17 international footballer Tega Agberhiere and his friends.Last week Ireland Republic U17 footballer Tega Agberhiere and two friends were attacked with a corrosive substance, sending him to the hospital where he is recovering from burns to his face and eyes.And today Ireland senior squad manager Mick McCarthy has publicly spoken about what happened to the underage prospect.“I was shocked to hear what happened to Tega and his friends in Waterford and I am sure I speak on behalf of everyone involved with football in Ireland when I wish them all well as they recover from the effects of this attack,” McCarthy said to the BBC.Report: England’s Rice gets death threats George Patchias – September 9, 2019 England International Declan Rice has received death threats.Rice a one time Ireland International, switched allegiances only this year. The West Ham United man played for…“I know Tega is a very promising young footballer and I hope and pray that he is back on the pitch in the very near future. My best wishes to Tega, to his friends and to their families.”He said: “It is very upsetting to hear about the incident involving Tega and I hope that he can complete a speedy recovery.”“Tega was in with us at Under-17 level and he had a great attitude as well as a lot of ability. All of the lads in the squad and the staff send on their best wishes to him and his family,” he added.“Tega worked with us with the Under 16 group last season and was part of the squad for the Victory Shield in Northern Ireland in late 2017 and for a doubleheader in Romania that same year. He came across as a nice, quiet lad who loved his football and I can only wish him well with his recovery.”
The team’s assistant manager believes his team won’t “lose any sleep” over missing out on capturing the services of David Turnbull.Celtic was close to signing 19-year-old midfielder David Turnbull.The player was selected Scotland’s Young Player of the Year.And he had talked with the Scottish champions, but recently-promoted Norwich City have matched the proposal and the youngster might go and play in the English Premier League.But according to assistant manager John Kennedy, his team can still attract great players.“I definitely believe we can attract the calibre of signings we need,” said Kennedy to The Scotsman.“Everyone knows who Celtic is and we can’t compete with the big money in England, but we can compete with other European clubs.”“It’s also not just about talent – players coming here need to have the right mindset,” he added.“We were obviously interested in David, whom we rate very highly.”Johnston is disappointed after being injured Manuel R. Medina – September 11, 2019 Celtic winger Mikey Johnston was disappointed to miss Scotland Under 21 national team’s victories over San Marino and Croatia, and he hopes he can return to play soon.“He’s done very well at Motherwell and everything had been agreed between the clubs,” the assistant said.“It all came down to a difference between the player’s representative and the club because the offer we made him was fair – it was extremely good, actually, for a player at that stage of his career.”Kennedy concluded: “What we want is for players to be hungry and we also want them to come here for the right reasons, not just financially, and for a 19-year-old with less than a full season for Motherwell under his belt, the offer we made was very good.”“The reality is that, if players come here and do well, then they’ll be amply rewarded as the years progress.”📹 Lennoxtown: Access All Areas!Exactly one week before the first pre-season game in Austria, go behind the scenes at the #CelticFC Training Centre as Neil Lennon puts the Bhoys through an intensive double training session. 🔥 #TurnUpTheHeat pic.twitter.com/9EUqa3SUkg— Celtic Football Club (@CelticFC) June 19, 2019
The former club striker has been honest to say that money can be used to strengthen other areas of the squad.According to former Rangers footballer, Kris Boyd, the team should be looking to sell Colombian striker Alfredo Morelos.Boyd said this move would allow the team to strengthen other areas of their squad for the 2019-2020 season.“If I was Rangers I would sell him because I think that if you can get the money that teams might be willing to pay, you can go and maybe strengthen your squad or your first team with maybe three or four other players who can make a big difference,” Boyd told Sky Sports.“I think when Alfredo Morelos plays, he plays up there on his own.”“A lot of things go through him being that lone striker – he plays a lot for himself,” he added.“I thought Rangers last season towards the end, finished very strongly with Scott Arfield and Jermain Defoe up front.”Boyd explained: “It looked a totally different team. They looked like a team that was playing together.”Johnston is disappointed after being injured Manuel R. Medina – September 11, 2019 Celtic winger Mikey Johnston was disappointed to miss Scotland Under 21 national team’s victories over San Marino and Croatia, and he hopes he can return to play soon.“Captain James Tavernier record from the penalty spot was unbelievable last season.”“He brings so much more to the Rangers team going forward. He’s their outlet – he creates so many opportunities,” he commented.“We’re all caught up in this modern-day full-back. When you see his stats from last year in terms of crosses and opportunities created, his goals – I know a lot of them came from the penalty spot but you still need someone to stand up there and take them.”📺 Not a @RangersTV subscriber?

Neymar’s rape case has finally come to an end, with a Brazilian judge accepting prosecutors’ recommendation that there was insufficient evidence.Neymar has been at the centre of a rape investigation for most of this summer after Brazilian model, Najila Trindade, accused him of sexually assaulting her in a Paris hotel in May.The Paris Saint-Germain forward turned up at the Rio de Janeiro police station in June to testify against Trindade’s accusations. However, he has since remained silent on the case as investigators studied the evidence.After concluding that indictment wasn’t an option, however, public prosecutors took over the case on July 30.Eventually, though, they concluded there was a lack of evidence to support Trindade claims. So, judge Ana Paula Vieira de Moraes has formally closed the rape investigation against Neymar.“We decided in favour of the closing of the case because there is no sufficient evidence,” said prosecutor Flavia Merlini, according to ITV.Meanwhile, co-prosecutor Estefania Paulin added.”The police investigator asked her to plug her phone into a computer so she could see the video [supposedly showing an attack], but she [the alleged victim] didn’t want to do that. She also refused to hand over her phone, and later she said it had been stolen.”Opinion: Neymar needs to apologize to PSG’s supporters Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 After such a dramatic summer during the transfer window, Neymar truly needs to apologize to all the PSG supporters this weekend.When Neymar finished last…“The case will be closed as long as no new evidence is presented. If evidence comes up and we come to understand it is relevant and important, the case could be reopened.”Neymar, of course, has vehemently denied Trindade’s claims against him during the summer.The pair allegedly met through the social media platform Instagram before agreeing to meet in person in France.But Trindade claimed a drunken Neymar “became aggressive” and had non-consensual sex with her on May 15. After returning to Brazil, she then went to a Sao Paulo police station to file an official report.In an attempt to prove his innocence, however, Neymar released video footage of messages he exchanged with the model.While the 27-year-old insists his press team posted the images, he may still have to answer for possible cybercrime charges as posted them without Trindade’s consent.BRASILIA, BRAZIL – JUNE 05: Neymar Jr of Brazil reacts during the International Friendly Match between Brazil and Qatar at Mane Garrincha Stadium on June 5, 2019 in Brasilia, Brazil.

Manchester City was down 2-0 at half time but ended up winning 3-2 against Swansea City in a game nobody will ever forget.Current English Premier League champions and leaders Manchester City found themselves in a very difficult situation.The Citizens were 2-0 down at half time, during today’s FA Cup Quarterfinal match.And they could have been kicked out of the competition, but they came from behind and ended up winning 3-2 to eliminate the Championship side.When asked about if this means Manchester City will continue to pursue the quadruple (winning all four titles they are participating at), manager Pep Guardiola was very honest.“Ask me at the end of April [about quadruple] and I will answer you,” Guardiola said to the team’s official website.“I want to congratulate the players and staff for being here at this stage. I am already satisfied.”“I know for the people it will be a big failure if we don’t win three or four titles, so I’m sorry!” he added.Liverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“Now we are going to fight every game after the international break.”“We played a good game in general. We made some mistakes and conceded goals,” he said.“We adjust something in a defensive way. Celina moved well between the lines and we defended better with two holding players.”“But we spoke in half time and said we need a goal and then hopefully the rest will be easier. The spirit didn’t drop,” he explained.“We started really well at the beginning but missed the last pass and last actions, that’s why we had problems. Swansea played good. But we started the second half very good, found a goal and after we created a lot of chances.”Está prohibido en este equipo rendirse antes de tiempo. Siempre peleando hasta el final 👊🏻It is forbidden in this team to surrender ahead of time. We always fight until the end 👊🏻 #cmonguys #cmoncity #SemiFinals 👉🏻 #FACup #manchestercity pic.twitter.com/5UHnrFc4MH— Nicolas Otamendi (@Notamendi30) March 16, 2019
The Argentinean legend could debut as a manager in the English Championship after completing his coaching diploma in Italy.Argentinean striker Gabriel Batistuta said goodbye to football in 2005 when he retired in Qatar playing for Al-Arabi.And since then, he has been studying to become a coach, and his first opportunity might come really soon.According to Football Italia, an unnamed source close to the former player claims he will become the next Middlesbrough manager.“Gabi has a fantastic record both as a world-leading player and technical director,” they said.Lautaro has a better start than Argentina’s greatest legends Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 11, 2019 After his impressive exhibition vs Mexico last Tuesday, Lautaro Martinez officially surpassed the start of Argentina’s greatest legends.We truly can’t stress enough incredible Lautaro…“He has discussed the potential of a move to England as his first managerial appointment and he is very keen to work with the right club next season.”“The future for Gabi is huge having completed his coaching badges last year and any club in England would be privileged to have him as their manager,” they concluded.Batistuta could replace Tony Pulis after he failed to take the team into Playoff spots this season.He received his coaching diploma eight months ago in Italy and is only allowed to manage teams that play in the second flight of the European competitions.If signed, he will cross paths with his former Argentina national team boss: Marcelo Bielsa who is leading Leeds United.
Okan Kocuk says that he wants to become a legend at the club after sealing a dream move to the Turkish giants from Bursaspor.Okan Kocuk is considered one of the most highly rated goalkeepers in Turkey. And after some sensational displays for Bursaspor, the youngster has definitely earned a move to one of the biggest clubs in Turkey.The youngster was very keen on making a move to Gala and even paid his former club €450,000 to free him from his contract. The youngster made 22 appearances for the Green Crocodiles last season and kept seven clean sheets.And while he was unable to prevent his team from getting demoted to the lower league, he had done enough to justify a move to the Turkish giants.Brusaspor’s relegation was something of a shock given that the club had only recently won the Super Lig title.UEFA Champions League Group A – Preview Boro Tanchev – September 6, 2019 Let’s begin with our Champions League group previews, starting with the Group A where we have two title contenders – Real Madrid and PSG.Now, Okan Kocuk is going to become the club’s second choice keeper behind Fernando Muslera. While displacing the Uruguay international would be tough, the youngster is definitely going to learn a lot from him.While speaking to reporters, the Turk said that he wants to make history for the club and thanked Fatih Terim for giving him a chance to do that.“Galatasaray is not my first club but the most special club for me. It is unbelievable to be here. Right now, I’m very happy and proud to be here. I really understood the value and weight this jersey carries when I came here. I would like to thanks Fatih Terim and Abdurrahim Albayrak for their help,” he said according to TRT Spor.Okan Kocuz also says that he will learn a lot from Muslera and goalkeeping coach, Claudio Taffarel.“Of course, the big goals do not end. I want to be a legend at Galatasaray. I will sweat and bleed for this shirt for many years.”
Morten Andersen says that it would be very difficult for Harry Kane to become a professional NFL player once he stops playing football. Harry Kane is a well-known NFL fan and is also the ambassador of the NFL academy in the UK. The game is in its infancy in England but the Tottenham striker has always harboured ambitions of playing the game one day as a kicker.“It’s something that in 10 or 12 years I definitely want to try,” he said.However, it appears that Harry Kane might never be able to play in the NFL or witness the Super Bowl as a player. According to NFL Hall of Famers Morten Andersen, the England international has no chance of playing in the US.While speaking to Bet ‘o Clock, the NFL legend said that Harry Kane wanting to play in the league is like him trying to take set-pieces for Manchester United.“For Harry Kane to become an NFL kicker, it’s not going to happen,” the Hall of Famer said.“Not to burst the bubble, as I would love to work with him. If I could have him for a month to train him to see how it goes.Report: Rooney talks Engalnd Kane and Guardiola George Patchias – September 12, 2019 Wayne Rooney has spoken of his England record, Harry Kane smashing it and Pep Guardiola for England.In an interview on his Wayne Rooney podcast…“But it’s like me becoming a specialist free-kick taker for Man United.“You need to be successful on 80% of your kicks in the NFL, and it’s not easy.“If Harry’s not going to make eight out of 10 kicks, it’s not going to happen. There’s a large number of guys hoping to make it as an NFL kicker.And the environment in an NFL game is also different with players dissing one another constantly.“Not only being able to deliver the ball, but you’re facing 11 guys across the line of scrimmage. They’re going to snort, spit and call him names to try and stop him.“You have to deliver from snap to kick in 1.2s – 1.5s through a target that is 16 feet 8 inches, and 10 feet above the crowd. Not forgetting the millions of people watching in the stands. Doesn’t it sound a bit ridiculous?”Clearly, Harry Kane is not going to cut it as an NFL player.
The European Club Association (ECA) will look towards the future to push the brand outside of Europe, according to Inter Milan’s Steven Zhang.Internazionale Milan’s Steven Zhang has been elected to the Executive Board of the European Club Association (ECA).And the Nerazzurri director is pointing towards the future.“The ECA is leading European football through a fundamental change,” he told the club’s official website.“I’m convinced that this journey must look at the global markets.”He added: “The appeal of the European clubs in Asia has immense potential that must be tapped into in order to satisfy the passion of the millions of fans who follow our main competitions.”Serie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….“I’m sure that I can make a contribution to building a bridge in developing relations between Europe and Asia.”“The development of European football cannot ignore young people and their ways of communicating which are: global, instant, digital and without barriers,” he commented.“I know that I’m very young, I speak their language. This is also why I think that I can contribute to the ECA in this project to change and innovate that it’s bravely taking on.”Ginevra, #ECA press conference @SkySport pic.twitter.com/oB8a4Xow6e— Francesco Cosatti (@FCosatti) September 10, 2019
