RUNAWAY Premier League leaders Manchester City returned to winning ways with a comfortable 3-1 victory over Watford on Tuesday.After a goalless draw at Crystal Palace on Sunday ended their 18-match winning run, City, who lead second-placed Manchester United by 15 points, took 38 seconds to get in front when an unmarked Raheem Sterling turned in a low cross from Leroy Sane at the back post.Belgian Kevin De Bruyne had a free kick tipped on to the bar and it was his low cross in the 13th minute which was turned into his own net by Watford defender Christian Kabasele to make it 2-0.Andre Gray tested Ederson after a rare break from the visitors but City wrapped up victory in the 63rd minute when Watford keeper Heurelho Gomes fumbled a low De Bruyne cross and Sergio Aguero pounced to slot home the loose ball.Gray got a consolation for Watford in the 82nd minute, slotting home a low cross from Andre Carillo.Tottenham Hotspur could afford to start Harry Kane on the bench and watch his replacement Fernando Llorente spearhead their hard-earned 2-0 win at bottom club Swansea City in the Premier League on Tuesday.Former Swansea man Llorente, enjoying a rare start as Kane recovered from a heavy cold, headed Spurs in front after 12 minutes, although he was clearly offside when meeting Christian Eriksen’s free kick.In incessant driving rain at the Liberty Stadium, Spurs looked largely in control until after the break when Jordan Ayew went close and Jan Vertonghen inadvertently deflected a Swansea attack against his own post.Yet Kane, brought on for the final 20 minutes, calmed nerves as he superbly set up an 89th-minute goal for Dele Alli that sealed the victory that lifted Spurs fifth in the table, above their local rivals Arsenal.Andy Carroll’s dramatic double lifted West Ham out of the relegation zone. The Hammers were trailing fellow strugglers West Brom until two goals from their towering striker – the second deep in stoppage time – secured a 2-1 win.James McClean had given the Baggies a first-half lead, but Carroll equalised with a trademark header and then buried an angled shot to leave the Baggies languishing in the bottom three.Seven of Albion’s weary starters against the Gunners kept their places, with Jake Livermore a late replacement for Matty Phillips who felt his hamstring during the warm-up.In the fourth minute of stoppage time Marko Arnautovic swept one final ball across goal and Carroll slotted in from the angle to secure a much-needed win.James McArthur and Luka Milivojevic struck to help Crystal Palace come from behind and continue their revival under Roy Hodgson as they beat Southampton 2-1 in their Premier League clash.Saints took the lead at a rainswept St Mary’s when Shane Long struck his first goal since February 2017 in the 17th minute, ending his drought by smashing home Jeremy Pied’s low cross from inside the area.Alex McCarthy made a superb low save to deny Christian Benteke as Palace pushed for an equaliser after the break, and they finally found one in the 69th minute when McArthur drove home from close range after Benteke’s flick-on.Then Milivojevic curled home a sumptuous winner from 20 metres from Andros Townsend’s cut-back with 10 minutes remaining to help Palace leapfrog their opponents and move into 14th, while Southampton drop to 17th, above the relegation zone only on goal difference, and departing to boos from their fans.

(AP) – Jubilant family members celebrated news early Wednesday that 12 miners were pulled alive from the scene of an underground explosion, only to learn nearly three hours later that they had been misled and just one miner actually survived. The chief executive of the mine blamed the stunning error on a misunderstood conversation overheard between rescuers and the command center overseeing rescue efforts. Families learned of the deaths from mine officials more than three hours after Gov. Joe Manchin said he had been told 12 of the miners survived the disaster. The sole survivor of the disaster was hospitalized, a doctor said. International Coal Group Chief Executive Officer Ben Hatfield told the families that only one miner, Randal McCloy, survived the explosion. Hatfield told the families gathered at the Sago Baptist Church that “there had been a lack of communication, that what we were told was wrong and that only one survived,” said John Groves, whose brother Jerry Groves was one of the trapped miners. At that point, chaos broke out in the church and a fight started. Hatfield said the erroneous information spread rapidly when people overheard phone calls between rescuers and the rescue command center. In reality, rescuers had confirmed finding 12 miners and were checking their vital signs, he said. “The initial report from the rescue team to the command center indicated multiple survivors,” Hatfield said during a news conference. “That information spread like wildfire, because it had come from the command center. It quickly got out of control.” Hatfield said the company waited to correct the information until it knew more about the rescue. On Tuesday, mine officials found extremely dangerous levels of carbon monoxide in the part of the mine where the men where believed to have been. The odorless, colorless gas can be lethal at high doses. At lower levels, it can cause headaches, dizziness, disorientation, nausea, fatigue and brain damage. Rescue crews found the body of a 13th miner earlier Tuesday evening and said they were holding out hope that the others were still alive, even as precious time continued to slip away. International Coal Group Inc. never confirmed that the 12 other men were alive. A relative at the church said a mine foreman called relatives there, saying the miners had been found. A few minutes after word came, the throng, several hundred strong, broke into a chorus of the hymn “How Great Thou Art,” in a chilly, night air. There were hugs and tears among the crowd outside the Sago Baptist Church near the mine, about 100 miles northeast of Charleston. The miners had been trapped 260 feet below the surface of the mine since an explosion early Monday. The body was found about 700 feet from a mine car, and it appeared the employee was working on a beltline, which brings coal out of the mine, said Ben Hatfield, chief executive officer for ICG of Ashland, Ky. Michelle Mouser of Morgantown said her family believed the dead miner was her uncle, Terry Helms. The mine car was empty, which led rescuers to believe the others may have been safe somewhere else in the mine. ___ On the Net: Federal Mine Health and Safety Administration: http://www.msha.gov ___ Associated Press writers Vicki Smith, Jennifer C.

SIMI VALLEY The City Council is boosting funds for the Police Department and graffiti removal and is upgrading the city’s computer system in a $65.7 million budget that is about $630,000 larger than last year’s.Higher-than-expected sales tax revenues and other factors helped give the city a $1.8 million budget surplus from last year.Officials expect about a $2.3 million-a-year increase from sales taxes at the Simi Valley Town Center, which opened in October, but said they are being cautious about spending the money before they have a clearer picture of the revenue.The new Simi Valley spending plan was approved Monday for the 2006-07 fiscal year beginning July 1. It also includes improvements for the Police Department, including $30,000 for new freezers to hold biological crime evidence, a new radar trailer to check vehicle speed and $131,000 for new electric stun guns to help the city’s 125 officers subdue violent suspects.The city already increased police patrols in last year’s budget to hold down response times, and those patrols will continue.Other spending increases this coming year include $95,000 to staff graffiti abatement and other problems, including illegal signs. The funding is temporary because officials hope they can eliminate the problem.The budget also includes $58,000 for putting council meetings live on the Internet through the city’s Web site and money for a consultant to help city officials improve the Web site overall.Paranick said Simi Valley had expenses that were paid off last year, allowing city officials to save money this coming year. A $1 million upgrade to the city’s computer system was paid off last year, along with $1.4 million to finish upgrading the city’s radio system for police and other agencies.Meanwhile, the Moorpark City Council adopted a $13.4 million general fund budget Wednesday, about $1.1 million more than last year.Increases in property taxes and sales taxes helped lead to a $2.4 million surplus last year, officials said, adding that new retail developments in the city expected to be completed in the coming year will boost sales taxes even more and probably result in another surplus by next June.Part of the savings from last year came as a result of budgeting about $326,000 for more police under contract with the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department. The positions were not filled last year because of staffing problems.The city plans in the coming year to boost emergency preparedness using a federal grant and enhance the city’s computer system with about $100,000 in firstname.lastname@example.org(805) 583-7602160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

He said the couple was estranged at the time and sleeping in different rooms, and not intimately aware of each other’s lives. “The way I read this transcript is she’s simply not certain,” he said. “She’s clearly wrestling with memory issues.” Chief Deputy District Attorney Joan Risse said that the computer from Karr’s house must have been working, since a Sonoma County detective was able to find the five illicit images on its hard drive. Karr’s defense team also is seeking to invalidate the search warrant that led to the seizure of the computer, claiming a detective failed to disclose that his confidential informant suffered from bipolar disorder, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

SANTA ROSA – Prosecutors withheld evidence that might have led to the dismissal of child pornography possession charges against former JonBenet Ramsey slaying suspect John Mark Karr, defense lawyers told a judge Tuesday. Karr’s attorneys said prosecutors deliberately withheld a September interview with his ex-wife, Lara Knutson, in which she told them the computer from where they found the five allegedly illegal images did not work at the time of his arrest. Karr’s attorneys are seeking to have the charges against him dismissed. Arguments in the case were delayed Tuesday while his lawyers asked a judge to order prosecutors to turn over more evidence. They are expected to resume today. Karr, 41, is accused of having five images of child porn on his computer when he was arrested in 2001. If convicted of the misdemeanor offenses, it is unlikely Karr would face jail time, as he already served time when first arrested five years ago, prosecutors have said.
