Woodbury officials will be celebrating the opening of the city’s newest park – Valley Creek Park – on Tuesday.

The grand opening celebration will be 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the park, located at 11500 Valley Creek Rd. The event is free and open to the public.

The park’s most publicized feature is the Miller Barn, which was built in the early 1920s. The barn – the city’s last remaining barn – is a remnant from the days when Woodbury was a dairy-farming community, officials say.

Members of the Woodbury Heritage Society will be at the event on Tuesday to share information about the history of Miller Barn.

The park also is the site of the headwaters of Valley Creek, a protected trout stream, so city officials had to be “really thoughtful about that while planning the park’s amenities,” said Michelle Okada, the city’s parks and recreation director.

Other features include a playground and trail segments with connections to neighborhoods, Okada said.

Participants will be able to take a self-guided tour of the park during the event; a map will be available at the check-in tent near the playground. Guests visiting all five park features highlighted on the map will receive a frozen treat as a prize.

Parking is limited; participants are asked to bike or walk to the park if possible, Okada said.

Shame on Cleveland Browns for allowing and playing Deshaun Watson – The Denver Post

Shame On Cleveland Browns For Allowing And Playing Deshaun Watson – The Denver Post

It’s no surprise that the Cleveland Browns, who paid Deshaun Watson a guaranteed $230 million despite rampant sexual assault allegations, pitched him to quarterback in the season opener. Friday night’s preseason 24-13 against the Jacksonville Jaguars – while Watson’s six-game suspension remains on appeal.

But that doesn’t make Browns owners Jimmy and Dee Haslam any less shameful. And it doesn’t make it any less deplorable that they allowed Watson’s behavior and dishonesty with an internally staged apology with a team reporter before the game.

Judge Sue Robinson has previously ruled, as a jointly paid and appointed arbitrator, that Watson engaged in a pattern of sexual assault. She ruled that his “driving pattern” was “more egregious than any previously reviewed by the NFL.” She noted his “lack of expressed remorse”.

Watson, who has long refused to acknowledge wrongdoing or show contrition, suddenly waved the white towel — er, the white flag — during a four-question session with a Browns-affiliated reporter. But he wouldn’t answer questions about it from any other media after the game.

Nothing says transparency and I’m sorry like controlling the questions, the timing, the interviewer and the narrative, right?

“Listen, I want to say I’m so sorry for all the women I’ve impacted in this situation,” Watson told the team reporter in an empty hotel hallway before boarding the bus to the hotel. ‘crew. “My decisions that I have made in my life that have put me in this position that I would really like to find again. But I want to continue to move forward, to grow, to learn and to show that I am a real person of character and I want to keep moving forward.

Watson only returned crawling with his tail between his legs after NFL commissioner Roger Goodell tripled on the QB’s “predatory” behavior and the league’s pursuit of an indefinite suspension during a a special league meeting in Minneapolis.

Former NJ Attorney General Peter Harvey did not rule on the NFL’s appeal of Watson’s suspension on Friday — even though his decision is supposed to be “fast-tracked,” per the collective bargaining agreement. This allowed the Browns to play Watson in the exhibition game.

Prior to the game, there were also rumors that Watson was seeking a compromise on the final suspension and backdoor negotiations between the QB team and the NFL on common ground.

That’s still where legal experts thought it was likely to land, as the Daily News pointed out last week: a compromise that allows both the NFL and the players’ union to claim victories in this new disciplinary configuration.

Watson therefore completed 1 of 5 passes for seven yards on Friday. The stats don’t matter, though.

What matters is the moral failure of the Browns, their lack of decency, and Watson’s victims – who had to watch him try to play one in that empty hotel hallway.

ZACH ATTACKS

Zach Wilson’s right knee injury wasn’t the only development concern for the Jets on Friday night. His piece was equally disturbing and disturbing.

He looked at the receivers. He threw an interception directly to Eagles linebacker Kyzir White. He showed a lack of conscience by making that fateful cut on his run rather than going out of bounds in a meaningless pre-season game.

The stakes are high at Florham Park this season.

The return of the former No. 2 pick after a bone contusion and meniscus tear and continued development could soften the blow of another potentially difficult year for head coach Robert Saleh and general manager Joe Douglas.

But if he returns and plays like he did on Friday night – then the situation could quickly spiral into another dismal year without a silver lining, given the challenge of the schedule starting September 11 against the Baltimore Ravens.

And it wouldn’t shock anyone if Woody Johnson blew it all up again, if there was a repeat of last year’s 4-13.

That’s the worst-case scenario, though. For now, the Jets need to do their best to make sure they don’t end up there. To that end, Joe Flacco is not the answer to a competitive 2022 season in the AFC East, regardless of the coaching staff’s true affinity for the veteran backup QB.

So if Wilson is closed at some point, Jimmy Garoppolo certainly makes sense as a trade target. Saleh and offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur have had close ties with Jimmy G since their 49ers and Super Bowl LIV in 2019.

For now, Saleh deserves credit for how strongly the substitutes played for him in Friday’s second half, beating the Eagles 21-7 on their way to a 24-21 pre-season victory. But he must also fix mistakes like linebacker Quincy Williams’ late hit on Eagles starting quarterback Jalen Hurts, which Saleh called “extremely awful” and enraged Philly coach Nick Sirianni.

And he needs Wilson to play better.

AROUND THE LEAGUE

Tom Brady is taking an extended break from Tampa Bay Buccaneers training camp to “take care of some personal things,” head coach Todd Bowles said. Bowles said he spoke with Brady about the arrangement before training camp. Rumor has it that Brady may have negotiated a summer leave as part of his deal to come back and play for the Bucs in 2022. He definitely needs some rest after all this time he’s spent trying to coming out of New England and Tampa to play for the Miami Dolphins in recent years. It must have been exhausting. …

Bears linebacker Roquan Smith wants to leave Chicago in the final year of his rookie contract. The team removed him from the physically unable to perform list in response to his threat of detention. But he does not practice. Head coach Matt Eberflus encouraged reporters to ask Smith not to practice, but the Bears did not make Smith available to the media. And there’s a report from ProFootballTalk that a person claiming to represent Smith called other teams to assess a potential trade interest — someone not licensed by the NFLPA. Quite a show in the Windy City so far. …

Patriots running back James White retired this week with a hip injury. He should have won the Super Bowl LI MVP title on February 5, 2017, in New England’s historic comeback against the Atlanta Falcons. His stat line: 20 touches for 139 yards and three touchdowns, including the game-winning 2-yard run in overtime. Brady somehow got the award for going 43 of 62 for 466 yards, two touchdowns and an interception, even though White’s lag on the Atlanta defense was the X-factor that made it all possible. …

Athletes First player agent Todd France is in hot water. The US Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit ruled this week that France had ‘committed fraud’ in a previous arbitration of a claim by agent Jason Bernstein regarding the transfer of catcher Kenny Golladay from Bernstein to France in 2019 while with the Detroit Lions. This was first reported by Jason Morrin of Conduct Detrimental. Bernstein was suspicious because of an autograph signing Golladay attended — and Bernstein didn’t arrange — three days before their relationship ended. France denied in arbitration that he had been involved in signing autographs, but the circuit court found he was behind it all. People in the league are curious about what discipline France could face with the grievance tracing back to the NFL Players Association. He is a major player in the player representation space. …

Goodell and league owners approved the sale of the Denver Broncos franchise to the Walton-Penner Group for a North American sports record $4.65 million. Afterwards, owner Rob Walton took to the podium and thanked “Goodle”, mispronouncing the commissioner’s name. Hey, the checks have cleared. …

The Kansas City Chiefs cut DeAndre Baker from the Giants draft after inexplicably employing him for two seasons. He appeared in 10 games and started two. …

The Cincinnati Bengals’ Paul Brown Stadium is now Paycor Stadium after a new licensing agreement. …

Former Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch, unhappy as a player now considered a media darling, has been arrested in Las Vegas on suspicion of drunk driving. An arrest report said officers found Lynch asleep and smelling of alcohol in an “undriveable” sports car, with one front wheel missing and the rear driver’s side and other wheels badly damaged. He also said the officers “had to use a restraint chair to force a blood draw.” No doubt Lynch’s behavior will be excused in no time, and he will continue to be embraced by some media outlets eager to allow all of this. …

Chargers coach Brandon Staley skipped practice Tuesday to be with his youngest son, who was undergoing surgery to treat a broken toe and possible infection, Priorities in Order in LA…

Falcons rookie receiver Drake London, the No. 8 overall pick, left Atlanta’s preseason opener with a knee injury, although it apparently wasn’t serious.

THEY SAID IT

“I have such beef with them right now. They won’t let me choose mine [hat]. I don’t want to go overboard and get fined or anything, but believe me, I’m upset about this. –49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan, at KNBR 680 San Francisco, on NFL rules preventing him from wearing a hat from previous years on the sidelines during games.

'Welcome To The Club!' - Brighton Troll Manchester United After Brentford Thrashing As Piers Morgan, Jamie Carragher And Simon Jordan React To Dismal Collapse

When Manchester United lose 4-0, the footballing world will always talk about it – but you know it’s bad when you get trolled by Brighton.

Erik ten Hag’s side fell to the shocking result against Brentford on Saturday night with the first half littered with David De Gea’s mistakes, seeing the Red Devils lose 4-0 in 35 minutes.

While De Gea was to blame for the opening goal in particular, mistakes by Cristiano Ronaldo and Christian Eriksen also contributed to United’s collapse.

Thomas Frank’s side undoubtedly deserve credit for such a win, but it was Man United’s performance that had everyone talking.

In addition to individual errors, Ten Hag’s side rarely seemed able to handle the physical threat that came from the Bees, with 5-foot-9 Lisandro Martinez tasked with scoring Ivan Toney during the first half.

Gary Neville predicted on Sky Sports that Brentford would look to use long throws into the penalty area to create panic against United’s small defenders, and then looked – for once – lost for his words as the Red Devils were “intimidated” by the London side.

The distance covered was also a huge area where the Ten Hag team fell short, covering only 95.6km as a team compared to 109.4km for Brentford.

The shocking manner of the loss certainly got fans, pundits and even football clubs talking on social media.


Here’s the best of the reaction to United’s 4-0 loss to Brentford.

Yankees need Clay Holmes to rediscover the dominant form that made him an All-Star

Yankees Need Clay Holmes To Rediscover The Dominant Form That Made Him An All-Star

BOSTON — It was here a month ago that Clay Holmes was named an All-Star. The reliever had dominated through his first 38 appearances of the season and it was obvious that he (and his 0.46 ERA) would be making his first Midsummer Classic.

It was also here at Fenway Park that cracks began to show.

He took his second blown save of the year here on July 9 and since then things have been a roller coaster with him. In the 11 games he’s pitched since then, the 29-year-old has allowed 10 earned runs and walked nine.

When asked if Holmes is still his closer, Aaron Boone wasn’t enthusiastic.

“We’ll see. I mean I’m trying to get him in the best positions to be successful,” the Yankees manager said after the Yankees’ 3-2 loss to the Red Sox Friday night. “We’ll keep working to get him right and consistent.”

The Yankees have few options if they don’t.

Aroldis Chapman is waiting in the wings. He’s made eight straight scoreless appearances after a season and a half of struggles. The 34-year-old has been used very carefully since his return from the injured list, where he spent six weeks with an Achilles issue and working on getting his delivery ironed out. He has been used primarily against the bottom of the opposing lineup, against weaker hitters.

Jonathan Loaisiga, who had five saves last season when Chapman struggled, has been inconsistent this season. Their most reliable relievers aren’t here right now. Michael King is out for the season after fracturing his elbow and Ron Marinaccio, who had earned Boone’s trust for high leverage innings, is in Triple-A because of a roster numbers crunch.

Needless to say if the Yankees are to get out of their current downward spiral — having lost eight out of their last nine games, they have to get Holmes back to the dominant reliever he was — whether he pitches in the ninth or not.

Pitching coach Matt Blake said that he had seen signs of progress over the last week.

“There was a little spell there where the command was a little bit suspect with the sinker and you were seeing lower zone rates, lower strike grades, the slot was dropping a little bit. And then we just talked about just kind of narrowing up his base at the set and kind of getting him to just be a little bit more directional as well,” Blake said of Holmes.

Holmes is basically using too wide a stance before he went into his delivery and it is causing him to be “overly rotational,” which results in his pulling or yanking pitches out of the strike zone.

“Yeah, and a lot of times there was like an aggressive rotational move that was pulling them off line,” Blake said.

When Holmes is missing the strike zone it’s a real problem. That was his issue in Pittsburgh, where he had a walk rate of 17.9 in his rookie season. Falling behind in counts basically makes his sinker less effective.

“I feel like I’m pretty close. I’ve thrown a lot of close pitches and competitive pitches, but when I find myself behind in the count a lot, I’m not able to get them to put [the ball in] play and those walks have been hurting me,” Holmes said. “I think it’s just a matter of just getting back to what made me good and when I was doing that, I was being aggressive in the zone early and I think when I get ahead of hitters… they have to swing the bat and make some different decisions.

“And so I don’t know, I don’t feel like I’m far off but again, those walks, they’ve been hurting me. So this can’t happen.”
