Emerald on Ellis at Greenslopes.Mr Thompson said while the apartments would be sold off-the-plan, the three homes wouldn’t be auctioned until their renovation was complete.The developer keeping the construction in-house, Mr Thompson said this gave them the ability to ensure good quality control from conception of the project right through until its completion.The three-storey project has been thoughtfully designed with all but two of the two and three-bedroom apartments facing north and enjoying city views.More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this homeless than 1 hour agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor6 hours agoMr Thompson said the standout feature of the project would have to be the rooftop pool.“It’s pretty amazing and rare to have a 16 apartment development with a rooftop pool where you’re only competing against 15 other apartment residents for use of that space,” he said.“It’s something special we can offer by saving money by building the project ourselves.”Remax United Vision selling agent David Cotterill said he was happy to be working with Siera Group on their latest project, having formed a good relationship with them over a number of years. Emerald on Ellis at Greenslopes is soon to be under construction with three Queenslander style homes to be renovated and 16 luxury apartments with city views and a rooftop pool.VIEWS and a rooftop pool almost all to yourself, this is the apartment complex for those that like their luxury but prefer not to have to share it with the world.Siera Group is gearing up to start construction on the Emerald on Ellis at Greenslopes, a project that will see the rejuvenation of three traditional Queenslander’s and the construction of 16 large apartments, most with city views and all with access to the rooftop pool.Siera Group owner Brent Thompson said the sites existing three houses would be moved to the east of the block and would all sit on their own 260sq m lot.“They will all be renovated within their traditional character and in respect to the way they were originally,” Mr Thompson said. Emerald on Ellis at Greenslopes.“We don’t just take on any builder or developer but we’re happy to work with Siera Group as they always take things to the next level with their standard and quality,” Mr Cotterill said.He said he was expecting strong sales from local residents, young professionals wanting to get their foot in the property door and empty nesters looking to downsize.“What we’re seeing is that people don’t want to stray too far from their own environment where they grew up or raised their own families,” Mr Cotterill said.“This project could also make for a very smart move for an investor, as typically in a complex of 16 you will see 13 or 14 owner-occupiers with only a couple of investors meaning that you’ll only ever be competing against a couple of apartments up for rent.”Mr Cotterill said Greenslopes was a rapidly changing suburb with a number of developments over the last few years driving a strong commercial hub with more cafes and small boutiques popping up in Stones Corner.Emerald on Ellis is located right next door to Stones Corner and only four kilometres from the CBD.

Remember the name Ivan the Terrible? Well just in case you don’t, according to www.biography.com, Ivan the Terrible was the grandson of Ivan the Great. Ivan the Terrible, or Ivan IV, acquired vast amounts of land during his long reign (1533-1584). Many believe him to have been mentally ill. One of his violent outbursts was perhaps the reason for his son’s death.On Sunday the Oakland Raiders had their own offensive outburst against the Black and Gold. Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor might as well have been the centuries old Russian Czar because in these Oktoberfest Halloween type times, on the first play of the game, he showed no mercy. He acquired vast amounts of land with his NFL record breaking 93 yard scamper appearing to be a long legged warp speed-like gazelle causing the Pittsburgh Steelers defenders to appear as if they were only a few steps from the “Shady Rest” geriatric long term nursing facility. That first play of the game might have just decapitated the Steelers chances to be playing any football besides “Madden” in February 2014. With that nifty little dash, Mr. Pryor rode the wind because as far as aerodynamics go, that was the breeze that carried him and his cronies to victory over the Pittsburgh squad. Whoever designed the defensive scheme must have been mentally ill for not assigning a young Pittsburgh defensive back to mirror the young Raiders QB from start to finish because aside from that “glorious romp” it was a struggle for the budding NFL superstar. After his unexpected, even shocking run, he only ran for 13 additional yards for the remainder of the game. However, the Raiders as a team had 38 carries for 197 yards, a hefty 5.2 yards per carry. Pardon me, would you happen to have any “Grey Poupon?” Oh but of course there had to be high browed naysayers in regards to doubting the “cerebral” abilities of Mr. Pryor and also his so-called “foot work” mechanics being a bit lacking, but you know what? The Raiders won a game that they shouldn’t have and that is all that matters. On the other hand, the Steelers running game (if you can call it that), produced the following numbers. Pittsburgh ran the ball 19 times for 38 yards for a 1.8 yard average per carry producing 1 touchdown. By the way, the Steelers longest run for the day was 8 yards. And Pittsburgh writers had the nerve to bash Mr. Pryor? Come and please relive a small bit of Pryor’s history with me. According to blogspot.com, as a junior basketball player in high school, “Terrelle Pryor averaged 21.5 points, 10.6 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 2.9 blocks and 2.3 steals per game. Has 1,064 career points. Terrelle Pryor was also named all-state in football. Terrelle Pryor as freshman averaged 16.5 points and 10.5 rebounds. Terrelle Pryor [also played] AAU basketball for the Pittsburgh Jots. As a sophomore Terrelle Pryor was selected to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review’s Terrific 25 East team. Terrelle Pryor was also selected to the Class AA second team by the Associated Press in football. As a junior Terrelle Pryor was a second team Class AA all-state selection. Before settling on Ohio State he entertained offers from Clemson, Connecticut, Florida, Miami, Fla., Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State, Pittsburgh and West Virginia. He is a versatile athlete that can multiple positions at the college level. Also before entering college all eyes [were] on Pryor, who was also considered to be one of the top junior basketball players in the nation [while continuing to grow] his football reputation as well. As a high school sophomore performing at his hometown high school Terrelle Pryor (6-6, 220) ran for 596 yards and 12 touchdowns, and passed for 647 yards and six scores. His play helped Jeannette go 8-2, 6-1.”The system bled and trampled on him like a ripened turnip. They assigned him value until they could make their thousands they turned on him like a pit bull in a butcher shop. Hey, before we focus on Pryor’s so-called “misdeeds and missteps” at The Ohio State University, lets spread the wealth around. Remember Maurice Clarett? Well according to an article written by Rusty Miller and published by the huffingtonpost.com on June 8, 2011, Mr. Miller wrote: “former Ohio State running back Maurice Clarett blames athletes rather than coaches and fans for the culture that created problems in the Buckeyes’ football program. Anything that any player goes and gets is all based on him and who he meets in the community.” Clarett questioned the foundation of big-time college football, where universities and coaches make millions off athletes yet the players get in trouble with the NCAA for accepting cash for autographs or memorabilia.“Why are they even in that position? Why is it that a university can profit $20 million, $30 million, $40 million and these guys are in the position,” Clarett said. “When there’s enough money to go around?” There is enough money to go around, but most owners seem to be tighter than a d–k’s hatband when it comes to paying Black athletes.” Nuff said, I’m out.(Aubrey Bruce can be reached at: [email protected] or 412-583-6741.)

The Nelson Leafs needed some late-game heroics to steal a point from the Columbia Valley Rockies in Kootenay International Junior Hockey League action Saturday night at the NDCC Arena.Jack Karran scored with 11 seconds remaining in the third period to pull the Leafs into a 3-3 tie with the Eddie Mountain Division squad.The single-point allows the Leafs to complete an early-season home stand with a 2-1-1 record.After netting a dozen Friday against Fernie, the Leafs fell behind early against the Rockies as Brennan Nelson and Joshua Antunes scored less than four minutes into the game to give the visitors a quick 2-0 advantage.Jackson Zimmermann, with his first of two on the night, cut the margin in half, with a goal on the power play late in the opening frame. Despite out shooting the Rockies 18-5 in the second period, Nelson failed to solve goalie Ben Kelsch. The former Leaf continually frustrated the home side shooters with some amazing saves.In the third it appeared Columbia Valley would have just enough offence to steal the road victory when Robert Butterwick put the puck past Quinn Yeager in the Leaf nets to give the visitors a 3-1 lead.However, Zimmermann scored with seven minutes remaining to set the stage for Karran to pot the equalizer.Nelson dominated the Rockies during the final 50 minutes of the game, out shooting the visitors 42-12 for a 52-21 game advantage.Kelsch was the obvious game star for Columbia Valley, which earned its first point of the season in four games.Karran took the player-of-the-game honour for the Leafs.Nelson, third in the Murdoch Division, now sets out on a three-game road trip with stops Friday in Spokane and Saturday in Creston.The Leafs travel to Grand Forks Friday, September 29th before returning home Saturday, September 30th to face the Creston Valley Thunder Cats at 7 p.m. in the NDCC Arena.
TRAINER QUOTES PETER EURTON, KOBE’S BACK, WINNER: Did you see how he came out of the gate? He broke too fresh, and that was good. He’s just good right now. He’s the best he’s been in so long. Gary hustled him a little bit and then he kind of let him fall back.”“He’ll probably run next at Churchill Downs on Derby Day (May 7 in the Churchill Downs Stakes at seven furlongs).” TYLER BAZE, COASTLINE, SECOND: “I had a beautiful trip. I didn’t really know how much he would eat the dirt, but I watched the replays from his dirt races and it looked like he had handled dirt in the face just fine. I really kind of let him run his race. I wanted to be patient with him going from six and a half down the hill to seven eighths, I think the distance is never a question with him, but I wanted to make sure I timed it right – especially when I had to thread the needle through a haystack. He ran really good.” JOCKEY QUOTES FLAVIEN PRAT, CALCULATOR, THIRD: “I had a good race, he [Calculator] had his shot and he was a little bit aggressive on the back side. That’s my only regret but overall, we had a good trip. He’s a good horse and he’s going to improve anyway so I’m happy with that race.” GARY STEVENS, KOBE’S BACK, WINNER: “It was the best he’s ever broken. I’ve been aboard him in a couple of workouts in the mornings, before his last race and again last week and there have been a few times that he’s wanted to go after horses in front of him and I’ve let him. What I found out is that he’s not only a great stretch runner but he’s a good turn runner. And that wasn’t the case last year. With a little time off and the addition of blinkers he seems a lot more focused.“He’s running on the turn so he’s gaining ground and doesn’t have to work so hard in the stretch. It gives me a lot of confidence. I knew at the half-mile pole that they were all in deep water and that’s a pretty good feeling.”“Pete’s got him figured out.” NOTES: The winning owners Lee and Susan Searing of Rancho Cucamonga who race as C R K Stable.

The opportunity for elite training with National coaches and players is fairly common for those touch players living in New South Wales or Queensland. However, for the smaller and more isolated touch regions such as the Northern Territory, the opportunities are fewer. Held once every twelve months, the Northern Territory Elite training camp is one such opportunity. The training camp has been run for the past seven years and this year brought 26 athletes to Darwin for the camp, which was run from June 24-26. The athletes were between the ago of 13 and 18 years and traveled from Darwin, Alice Springs, Katherine and Maningrida. Kerry Norman (current Australian Womens Open coach), Peter McNeven (past Australian Mens Open coach) and also Australian representatives Bo De la Cruz, Tony Eltakchi and Peter Stoddart, all made the trip to Darwin. Isobel Appo from Northern Territory Touch, says the idea behind the camp is to give the players three days of intense training and education in what is expected of an elite player. The camp included hydration and fluid lectures, fitness assessments, skill sessions and other activities. A little bit of fun was also scheduled in, with the players taken to the small town of Batchelor one morning to train, before heading to the beautiful Litchfield National Park for a swim. Local touch coaches were also invited to attend the camp, with the presence of Australian coaches a great opportunity to help develop their knowledge and skills. “All our athletes and coaches and our Association really appreciate the opportunity to have the Australian coaches and players give their valuable time and help which we see as an excellent tool in the development of touch at the elite level,” says Ms Appo.

Ex-Spurs boss Redknapp: Why’d Pochettino want to start again at Man Utd?by Paul Vegas9 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has questioned whether Mauricio Pochettino would want the Manchester United job.The rumours have understandably upset Spurs fans, although Redknapp believes it is far from guaranteed that Pochettino will accept a move to Old Trafford.“It’s a difficult one,” Redknapp told BBC 5 Live. “He’s obviously getting very, very well paid where he is. It’s a good club, they’ve got a great training ground. They’ve got a brand new stadium coming.”He’s got a good team. He’s got to go and build a team at Man United. For me they’re still way short of being a team that could win the league again. I think the back four needs absolute surgery there.“I still think they’re quite well short of where they want to be. So I don’t know — does he jump ship and go and start again and look to rebuild there where he’s absolutely loved at White Hart Lane?”It’s a difficult situation for him I’ll be truthful I would think his life’s pretty good at the moment. He’s absolutely there idolised by the fans. I think it would be difficult for him to leave personally. Even though Man Utd is an amazing football club, we all know that.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
