Stay on target Ever since its announcement, the idea of a Joker origin movie made no sense. Well, it made financial sense considering the popularity of the character, but artistically it seemed to have little reason to exist. Everyone already knows about the Joker. His sketchy lack of history is part of his chaotic appeal, so why explain it? And of course Heath Ledger was so great as the character already he won a posthumous Academy Award for his work in The Dark Knight. Where do you go from there?Well for director Todd Phillips the answer is telling the origin of the clown prince of crime as a gritty 1980s character study inspired by Martin Scorsese classics like Taxi Driver and The King of Comedy. Getting an actor as committed to frightening physical transformations as Phoenix will surely help, as will the impressive supporting cast including Zazie Beetz, Marc Maron, Brian Tyree Henry, Robert De Niro, and Brett Cullen as an asshole Thomas Wayne.We’ll see how the Joker movie shakes out when it hits theaters October 4th.

Joaquin Phoenix Wanted Thomas Wayne Excluded From ‘Joker’ Script’Joker’ Earns High Rotten Tomatoes Score From Film Critics After the critical and commercial failure of DC’s first stab at its own cinematic universe, the other of the big two comic book companies continues to bounce back in fascinating ways when it comes to putting its characters on screen. Aquaman was dumb as hell but fun enough to make a billion dollars. The Shazam movie looks like the absolutely correct way to do a Shazam movie. Wonder Woman and Harley Quinn, the best parts of the pre-Justice League era, have new movies coming up.And now we’re already getting a new Joker played by Joaquin Phoenix, a way better and less insufferable actor compared to Jared Leto. Check out the newest trailer for Joker coming this October.

Before sunrise on Thursday, Jamie Spinelli and Thomas Eaton headed into the woods in search of the homeless. The caseworkers from Community Services Northwest ventured down muddy trails along Burnt Bridge Creek, through blackberry brambles and under freeway overpasses in an effort to find and count people staying outside.“Don’t worry. We’re not the cops,” Eaton said as he approached the first person they found, a 54-year-old woman.She was bundled in a sleeping bag under a bridge, sitting next to a few belongings. She said she was homeless because her Social Security income wasn’t enough to afford rent. Yes, she said, she had been homeless before. Yes, she was alone.Spinelli inquired about her education level, veteran and disability status, and added the information on intake forms. Thursday was the annual Point-in-Time count, a single-day census of homeless people and a requirement from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. It’ll take months for the numbers to be finalized.At last year’s count, there were 692 homeless people, including 228 unsheltered people in Clark County. People in shelters are counted, too.Spinelli and Eaton handed the homeless woman a plastic bag of hygiene products and supplies, as well as a bus pass and a flier about Project Homeless Connect. The resource fair for the homeless was at St. Joseph Catholic Church, and a shuttle from the men’s homeless shelter could take her there.The fair was another opportunity to get a more accurate count of homeless people.The fact that the woman has income but is homeless is a commentary on local rents, Spinelli said. She told Spinelli that she used to live at Courtyard Village, where dozens of low-income tenants were given 20-day notices to vacate. The complex has since been renovated, renamed Parc Central, and rents were increased.
A unique Vancouver institution that has lit up many lives with saleable skills and career possibilities is about to go dark. After 68 years, the School of Piano Technology for the Blind is preparing to shut down within the next few months.The school’s specialized niche has always drawn students in small numbers, and commencement ceremonies that used to boast six graduates have dwindled in recent years to just two, or even one. There are no students at the school now, executive director Cheri Martin said. The last two graduated in December.“We don’t have students,” she said. “We’ve done well in everything else. There’s no debt. We have strong assets. But we don’t have any students.”All of the nonprofit organization’s assets will be moved into a permanent endowment fund, named for founder Emil Fries, that makes “annual grants to organizations serving the blind and visually impaired community,” according to a statement. That plan was created in cooperation with Fries’ descendants, two of whom remain members of the board of directors. And, the tuning and repair business likely will continue as a private, for-profit business under instructor and technician Leal Sylvester.But the school itself is finished, Martin said. The property at 2510 E. Evergreen Blvd. will be sold, along with approximately 85 pianos and thousands of parts and tools that are still on hand.
The Dike Access Road onramp to northbound Interstate 5 in Woodland is open again.A landslide covered part of the ramp and forced the Washington Department of Transportation to close it last Wednesday.In addition to clearing the road, crews removed debris and trees from an adjacent hillside.
Residents in the city of Camas will vote Tuesday on a replacement emergency medical services property tax levy, and it’s one that should be pretty familiar to homeowners.The replacement levy is the exact same as the current levy: it will charge residents 46 cents per $1,000 of assessed valuation. The levy would start in 2019 and last for six years.“This is a funding system that has been in place since 1978,” Camas-Washougal Fire Chief Nick Swinhart said. “Then, it was 25 cents per thousand. Basically, we’ve had two increases since then. We’ve had very few increases since 1978, which I think shows that we’re able to be fiscally responsible and put it to good use.”The money is earmarked for emergency medical services, including ambulance services, equipment and salaries, Swinhart said.The vote requires a simple majority of 50 percent plus one vote to pass.The current levy brings in just shy of $1.4 million to the city of Camas, according to Cathy Huber-Nickerson, the city’s finance director. She said with rising assessment values, the replacement levy, should it pass, could bring in around $1.49 million a year to the city.She said the amount that comes in from the levy will depend on a few factors, such as where new construction pops up in the city or whether there’s a recession.The replacement levy would cost a homeowner $161 a year for a home valued at $350,000.
FEDERAL WAY — A tractor-trailer made a fowl mess when it rolled over in Washington state. It dumped about 40,000 pounds of chicken feathers across Interstate 5.Washington State Patrol Trooper Rick Johnson says the driver told investigators he fell asleep at about 3:30 a.m. Wednesday north of Tacoma and lost control of the truck, which hit a guardrail and overturned.The truck was hauling the feathers from a poultry facility to a rendering company in Vancouver, B.C.The Canadian company recycles animal byproducts into ingredients for items including pet feed and soap.The News Tribune newspaper of Tacoma reports traffic backed up for 11 miles as crews scooped up the feathers.Johnson said the driver would be cited for negligent driving.Tow is trying to upright the over turned semi now.

WOODLAND — Rose & Thorn Boutique’s expansion in early August means more space for more local vendors to offer their wares, and ensuring that opportunity is afforded to those creators is part of why owner Andrea Duvall bought the shop.In November 2016, she came by what became the boutique and started talking to two of the vendors.“I didn’t know them from Adam,” she said, but they started talking about how the owner was looking to sell.The store sells almost all locally crafted gifts and, she learned, provides a creative outlet and side income for dozens of women.Then and now, they come from all walks of life, she said.One, she said, told her, “I would go crazy if I didn’t have this store, didn’t have an outlet.”A couple are single mothers, she said, who find and remake discarded items, or make entirely new goods, for a supplemental income and means to be creative.She had six children when she bought the store, seven now, so she can relate to wanting to do something other than child rearing or chores.“Some of these ladies are just stay-at-home moms,” she said. “They’d go crazy if they didn’t have something else to do.”She came home with the bill of sale and a shop.“Look, honey,” she recalled telling her husband. “I bought us a store.”He came around, she said.Since then, the store moved in its business complex, changed names and, in early August, added another wing.“We had a waiting list of, like, 50-something people, and people would constantly come in looking to join us,” she said. “But we didn’t have the space for them.”The added space means more vendors can set up and sell. The shop is organized like an antique mall, she said, even a co-op: Duvall and some vendors take turns working the till and helping customers. There are about 40 vendors.
Lucia Mercado spends her work shifts among giant cardboard boxes full of stuff.Old shoes, clothes, toys, books, obsolete technology and appliances — one can find just about anything in the heaping piles of things donated to the Fisher’s Landing Goodwill store.Donations — and profits — have been on the rise in recent years at many thrift stores as attitudes toward them have shifted and evolved. While some retail stores and chains have struggled to stay afloat, the resale industry experienced a boom as more middle class families accessed resale shops following the Great Recession, disrupting the narrative that only low-income consumers would set foot in them.Changing neighborhoodsMercado paused while at her pricing station at the back of the store, where she focuses on houseware items. That’s the most difficult pricing station, employees say, since it encompasses such a huge variety of objects. Mercado stopped to inspect a pink, LeapFrog-brand toy teapot with blue googly eyes and a purple top adorned with hearts.A new LeapFrog Musical Rainbow Tea Party set on Walmart’s website goes for $19.89. Mercado placed a $2.99 sticker on it and put it in a cart of items that would eventually be placed on shelves in the store.According to Goodwill Industries of the Columbia Willamette, the Fisher’s Landing store attracts some of the city’s best donations. That’s because as the population has grown, so have median household incomes. In 2016, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, the median income in Clark County rose to $62,879. For the city of Vancouver, that number was $52,004.

Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp has hailed goalkeeper Alison Becker as “exciting package” after he made important saves in their 3-1 victory at Burnley.Alisson was influential in the second half of Liverpool 3-1 win at Turf Moor, as he saved Ben Mee’s goalbound header and later launched a counter-attack that led to Xherdan Shaqiri’s goal which helped Jurgen Klopp’s side seal the game.The Brazilian has only let in six goals in 15 Premier League matches so far, and Klopp is happy with his contribution.“The best thing is not talking about a goalkeeper – that means he is without any mistakes,” Klopp told the club’s website.“But after the last game… again, he had a big, big part in the game.Crouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“After the game, I think everybody saw the goal Burnley scored should have been disallowed. It was a difficult decision, especially the offside.“That’s how it is. It’s the view of the ref or the assistant, in this case. But it was offside. Then he [had] both hands on the ball. That’s one thing.“The other thing is, he stayed in the game and when we were 2-1 up made a brilliant save.“And with the next ball, that’s his attitude – he doesn’t stand on his line or wait, he goes out and catches it, then counter-attack. That’s a really exciting package the boy delivers and it helped us a lot, of course.”

Sacked Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho played down rumours that he will return to Real Madrid as manager.The Portuguese professional football coach added that he is happy where he is right now despite losing Manchester United job.“When a manager or a player returns, it’s because they did something positive,” he says as quoted in AS.“I felt that when I arrived at Chelsea. When a professional returns or is offered a return to a club, it’s a tremendous honour. It’s not a blind bet, the club are trying to bring in a player or manager that they already know, who was already there and if they offer it is because they know the value of this person.”Mourinho: “Lionel Messi made me a better coach” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho believes the experience of going up against Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi at Real Madrid made him a greater coach.Mourinho signed a three-year deal as manager of Manchester United in May 2016 and won the Community Shield, the League Cup and the UEFA Europa League in his first season in charge of the club.United finished second behind their city rivals in 2017/18 and lost the FA Cup final to Chelsea.Mourinho laws sacked from Manchester United in December 2018, leaving the club in sixth place after 17 matches.

This comes after a warrant of committal was issued for Mr. Archer on April 4th, 2017. Magistrate Derence Rolle-Davis had since then delayed the case until Tuesday 11th April 2017. Archer was said to have paid all his outstanding fees on April 5th, 2017.However, instead of being released today, Mr. Archer’s stay in Her Majesty’s Prison was extended. In court last week, Archer’s lawyer Barry Sawyer and his associates were told to have his defense on charges of intentional libel and threats of death ready. However, it is now being said that Archer’s present sentencing is due to an outstanding civil matter in court number 13 from 2011. Many of Archer’s supporters are now left infuriated as they worry that he may not be able to vote and say that the timing of this arrest immediately after the announcement by Prime Minister Perry Christie on the election date is suspicious. Archer is the man Perry Christie ‘flipped the bird’ at during a PLP public rally in February. Supporters have signed a petition for Omar Archer’s freedom, stating the activist has been arrested on dubious charges and his constitutional right to speak is being infringed upon by this incarceration without bail.

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has heaped praises on Cristiano Ronaldo after the Portugal international’s performance in the club’s win against Cagliari.The Italian gaffer praised Ronaldo’s leadership skills as the Italian champions beat Cagliari 3-1 for their 10th win in 11 games to maintain their six-point cushion at the top of Serie A on Saturday.Argentine Star, Paulo Dybala scorer within the opening minute of the game, before a Filip Bradaric own-goal gave Juventus a two-goal cushion after 39 minutes, two minutes after Joao Pedro had equalized for the visitors.Ronaldo failed to add to his seven-goal league tally for the Turin outfit with the former Real Madrid man hitting the woodwork before next week’s UEFA Champions League game against former club Manchester United.However, the 33-year-old’s pass across goal set up Juan Cuadrado for his first of the season in the 87th minute in the Allianz Stadium.“He has always been a leader and an extraordinary player, as you saw from the assist he put on Cuadrado’s foot,” said Allegri, according to AFP.Fiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.“These are different players who in the decisive moment always come up with a goal or a great pass.”Juventus have 31 points from 11 games with nearest challengers, Inter and Napoli both on 25 points after the same number of matches played.It is the best ever start to a season for the Bianconeri, who have drawn just one game so far in the league this season.Earlier today, Luciano Spalletti’s Inter Milan crushed Genoa 5-0 to reclaim the second spot on goal difference ahead of Napoli, who had eased past Empoli 5-1 on Friday and keep the pressure on the seven-time reigning champions.But Allegri insisted: “This isn’t good enough.“We have to defend better, we concede too many goals and risked letting in an equaliser in the 85th minute.”
The former owner died tragically after a helicopter accident and for Leicester City’s goalkeeper he was the best boss everLeicester City’s owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha died tragically after his helicopter crashed outside the King Power Stadium.And for the Foxes’ goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, he was the best boss one could have.“If you look back at my career, I’ve had to constantly prove myself and be compared to others. Constantly having to prove I am good enough,” Schmeichel told Sky Sports.“Then came a guy who said he believed in me from the first minute. He said he’d seen me play and just gave me the platform.”Maguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…“I’ve been here nearly eight years now and that says a lot about the stability here and the belief he had in me,” he commented.“Having gone from nine clubs to just being at one club, I was searching for someone who believed in me – he and his family did.”“It’s very easy to be caught up in this world of money, fame, and fortune. He is a guy who has done all that and doesn’t care about it. He only cares about helping people,” he added.“It just speaks to the man that he was. He didn’t need to buy a football club. That’s never a good business investment.”
