She does ride and we’ve not found any bad habits, so she’ll make somebody a good horse.”The other rescue horse available for adoption is a smaller, gaited pony.“She’s about 13 hands so she’s not a big mare,” Barnette said. “How well she rides, we don’t know. She is halter broke and handles. But we don’t know about her riding history.”Anyone who is interested in adopting one of these rescue horses is encouraged to call Barnette at 334-372-1333.“There will be paper work to do and a veterinarian reference is required,” Barnette said. “We want to know from the vet that these horses will be taken care of. We’re not going to take them from a bad situation and put them into a worse situation. We won’t do that.”The Barnetts participate in the care of rescued horses but they are not involved in any area of law enforcement.“We don’t go out and take people’s horses,” Barnette said. “But when law enforcement officers ask us to care for the rescued horses, we do.”The Barnetts got involve in rescuing horses in January when they offered to haul horses that had been rescued in Hope Hull.“They were Arabians and they were nothing more than skin on bones,” Barnette said. “They were in such bad shape that three of them died after they were rescued. We’ve participated in the rescue efforts of the Alabama Equine Rescue Society and the Alabama Rural Crimes Unit. We can’t stand to see horses mistreated.”For more information or to assist with the care of rescued horses, call 3334-372-1333.

Help create a vision for a beautiful park

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion Shenendehowa school district voters have an opportunity Dec. 5 to take another giant leap forward in securing and expanding a precious commodity: open space and greenery. A majority “yes” vote at Shen’s Gowana Middle School on that day will approve a negotiated agreement under which the school district will sell 34 acres of open land to the town of Clifton Park for eventual development into a park.This opportunity was made possible by a months-long regional effort and April referendum to reverse a Shenendehowa school board vote to sell the land for commercial development. Since that vote, school board and town officials have been holding meetings to determine the next steps. This effort led to an agreement for the town to purchase the land for $1.1 million. As part of that agreement, voters in the district get to have their say on final approval.I hope voters throughout the district understand the value of retaining this land to create a park for everyone in the region to enjoy for decades to come — preventing it from becoming part of the wave of commercial and residential development sweeping the community. Open space and parks improve the overall attractiveness and value of our community as a place to live and/or work. Let’s not let this opportunity pass.On Dec. 5, cast a “yes” vote that places our town among those Capital Region communities whose leaders, businesses and residents have had the vision to create beautiful parks, such as The Crossings in Colonie and Congress Park in Saratoga Springs.Mark MarchandClifton ParkMore from The Daily Gazette:Controversial solar project goes before Clifton Park Planning BoardFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesGame 7: Shenendehowa grad and Braves rookie Ian Anderson gets start with World Series spot on the li…last_img read more

NBA suspends Rockets’ Trevor Ariza, Gerald Green 2 games for entering Clippers’ locker room

first_imgGriffin intercepted Ariza and the two barked at each other before they were ejected with 63 seconds remaining in the game. Griffin departed immediately for the locker room, removing his jersey and tossing it to a fan as he left. Ariza lingered and had to be ushered away by team personnel.Austin Rivers said Wednesday he and Ariza spoke by phone Tuesday for 40 minutes and cleared up what both realized had been a misunderstanding in the closing moments of the game.Minutes before Griffin and Ariza were tossed, Griffin and Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni cursed at each other after D’Antoni became upset with Griffin, claiming Griffin bumped him as he ran down court. Ariza and Paul interceded on behalf of D’Antoni. Griffin and D’Antoni received technical fouls.Later, Ariza reached out and tore Griffin’s tights on a drive to the basket, drawing a foul.And later still, Griffin fired the ball off the back of Houston’s Eric Gordon while trying to save it from going out of bounds. Gordon glared at Griffin, who walked away without a word. Griffin didn’t need to toss the ball at Gordon because a foul had been called, halting the play.“I don’t think any of us were fearful that any of our guys would get anything,” Rivers said when asked if he was relieved Griffin was not suspended or fined for his role in the on-court incidents. “We were not involved in that in any way at all.”The Clippers and Rockets play again Feb. 28 at Staples Center. LOS ANGELES — Blake Griffin was in the Clippers’ starting lineup for Wednesday’s game against the Denver Nuggets at Staples Center, avoiding supplementary discipline from the NBA for his role during a heated ending to Monday’s victory over the Houston Rockets.Trevor Ariza and Gerald Green of the Rockets weren’t so fortunate. They will be suspended by the league for home games Thursday against the Minnesota Timberwolves and Saturday against the Golden State Warriors for entering the Clippers’ locker room after the game.Chris Paul and injured guard James Harden, who also entered the locker room after the Clippers’ 113-102 victory, will not be disciplined because they tried to act as peacemakers, according to the NBA. A fifth Rockets player, Clint Capela, was not suspended after an initial report of his involvement proved false.“Probably not, probably not,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said when asked if he agreed with the league’s decision to suspend only Ariza and Green, two players who don’t have the star-power of Paul and Harden. “(But), honestly, you know where I stand on suspensions. I don’t like them. “I always think it should just be fines, heavy fines. I don’t like anybody missing games.”Rivers was among those interviewed by the league during its investigation.“During the league’s investigation, which included more than 20 interviews with executives, staff, coaches and players from both teams, as well as arena personnel, it was determined that Ariza and Green entered the Clippers’ locker room immediately after the game and engaged in a hostile, verbal altercation with several Clippers players,” the NBA said in a statement.“The league’s investigation further concluded that Rockets players James Harden and Chris Paul followed Ariza and Green into the corridor outside the locker room in an effort to defuse the situation, and accordingly, discipline is not warranted.”Ariza and Paul, in particular, were upset with Griffin and injured guard Austin Rivers after tempers flared in the closing minutes of the game. Ariza exchanged words with the younger Rivers, who was standing in front of the Clippers’ bench in the closing moments of the game.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
