The Merseysiders have traveled to Switzerland to face Sevilla in the Europa League Final with the winners also securing a place in next season’s Champions League group stages.Reds boss Jurgen Klopp lost several finals while in charge of Borussia Dortmund – including the 2013 Champions League decider against Bayern Munich – but he says that those failures have driven him on to succeed.Kick-off tonight is at 19:45.
FAIR HAVEN — “We don’t get the respect we should as crossing guards, that’s for sure,” said John Furiato, who spends part of every school day at the Hance and River roads intersection, making sure the young students make their way safely to Knollwood School, on Hance.After making that statement on Tuesday, Furiato thinks for a moment and then adds, “Well, except for the kids and their parents.”But Furiato received some special recognition at a regular meeting of the borough governing body last Monday, when the mayor and council honored Furiato for quick thinking on the job – quick thinking that very likely spared a child from being struck by a vehicle.“He’s a good guy,” Police Chief Darryl Breckenridge said about Furiato. “He did the right thing.”Mayor Benjamin Lucarelli presented Furiato with a proclamation, acknowledging that Furiato “made a split second decision to quickly step in front of the juvenile,” blocking the child from walking across River Road as a driver was attempting to make an illegal right turn to travel east on River, very possibly putting the child in harm’s way.As he does every school day, Furiato said, on Jan 24, he was helping the usual number of 60-80 kids make their way across the street to Knollwood school. The kids had proceeded, but one little guy, about 10, had arrived late, Furiato remembered, apologizing to the guard because he couldn’t find his bicycle helmet.Furiato was walking the boy across the street, when Furiato noticed a car, traveling north on Hance Road that was inching out into the intersection against the traffic light, looking to make a right onto River Road. As the driver continued to make the illegal turn, Furiato pulled the boy back and ste3pped in front of him, standing between the boy and the car. The car completed the turn and drove away.Another driver sitting at the light called police to report the incident, and the first driver was stopped by police and charged appropriately.“It just happened too damn quick,” Furiato said of the whole incident.The important thing, he stressed was that the child wasn’t hurt.Furiato, 75, is a lifelong Colts Neck resident, who has owned and operated small businesses for much of his life. He has been working as a crossing guard in Fair Haven since 2007. “It’s a big responsibility,” he said.“When these kids leave their yards, they’re my kids,” he said. “They’re my responsibility.”River Road is heavily traveled, putting pedestrians at risk of being hit by distracted and downright rude drivers, he said. “There are close calls every day,” he said, acknowledging some drivers “flip me the bird,” and yell obnoxious things.“I could get hurt if I’m not smart enough to get out of their way,” he said.But seeing the kids every day makes it worthwhile, he continued.And parents often express their gratitude, with small gifts at Christmas and the end of the school year.“They appreciate what I do,” he said. By John Burton Colts Neck resident and Fair Haven school crossing guard John Furiato was honored by the Fair Haven Borough Council last Monday for his actions in protecting a young Knollwood School student from being in the path of a vehicle making an illegal turn. Furiato helps some 60 to 80 kids cross safely to school at the corner of River and Hance Roads.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Scattered showers are back in over the state today, after most of the region picked up a few hours of rain free weather yesterday into last night. The action today features better chances this afternoon and evening than this morning, but the overall feel of the day will be wet. We look for a few hundredths to .4″with coverage at around 60%. Rain and thunderstorm action picks up for tomorrow, with rains of .25”-1” and 90% coverage. Then on Saturday we see another round of precipitation, mostly from I-70 southward. We can see thunderstorms near the Ohio River. Rain totals end up from .1”-4” in most areas, but down near the river we can see those thunderstorms trigger rains of half to 1.5″, and even some strong to severe weather. Coverage will end up being around 80% of the area from I-70 southward, but we have nothing really up north. Sunday starts with some lingering leftover showers in eastern parts of the state, in the morning, but that action gives way to some afternoon sunshine. Monday brings mostly sunny skies.Sun will be followed by increasing clouds on Tuesday, with scattered showers and thunderstorms showing up later in the afternoon and evening. We like rain totals from .25″-.75″ from I-70 northward and 60% coverage. Moisture fills in some more for next Wednesday, bringing another .1″-.6″ and 60% coverage. Then Thursday rain and thunderstorms will be moving through . That action stays mostly north of US 20 in the morning, but from midday through Thursday night into Friday morning, it moves through the rest of the state. Combined we see half to 2 inch rain totals there with coverage at 100% of the state. These days combined will bring another significant batch of rain to all of Ohio. The maps at right shows moisture from this morning through next Friday morning…8 day rain totals. Clearing works in for next Friday afternoon, and for now we can say we don’t expect any new precipitation through the weekend, Saturday and Sunday, the 11th and 12th. That takes us into the extended 11-16 day forecast window. Unfortunately, the dry period ends there, and at max evaporation, that means we lose .75” of moisture for the period, after picking up half to 2 inches immediately before…so, no net drying there.Showers return for Monday the 13th, coming in from the SW and spreading northeast across the state. Rain totals can be from .25”-.9” with 100% coverage. Then after a drier window from Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday, showers develop again for Thursday and Friday, the 16th and 17th. In that batch, we have moisture totals at .25”-1.5”, with the upper third of the range limited mostly to thunderstorm development. Still, it means we really do not see any good, sustainable drying over the state. Field work expectations still have to be pretty low through mid-month.
TORONTO – Canada’s main stock index dipped into the red Monday as minor U.S. stock movements saw Wall Street hit a new record high.The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index was down 4.47 points to 15,802.7.The commodity-heavy TSX had been up earlier in the trading day, with some of the lift coming from rising oil prices, said Allan Small, a senior investment adviser at Holliswealth.The November crude contract climbed 42 cents to US$51.87 per barrel amid rising tensions in the Middle East as Iraqi federal forces moved into the disputed city of Kirkuk and seized oil fields, prompting a withdrawal by Kurdish forces.“Oil was up quite a bit because of what’s been happening in Iraq — Iraq being the no. 2 producer of oil in OPEC,” Small said.South of the border, New York stock indices extended their record-setting run into a sixth straight week.The Dow Jones industrial average advanced 85.24 points to 22,956.96. The S&P 500 index inched up 4.47 points to 2,557.64 and the Nasdaq composite index gained 18.21 points to 6,624.01.While Monday was a relatively light day for earnings, the pace is slated to pick up on Tuesday and into next week, when the bulk of S&P 500 companies are scheduled to report quarterly results.“Obviously earnings are very key until we get the next political catalyst such as tax reform,” said Small.“Is the market expensive? I think that’s the question everybody is looking at,” he said. “I don’t think it’s extremely expensive. I don’t think it’s cheap but I think it’s fairly valued.”In currency markets, the Canadian dollar was trading at an average price of 79.81 cents US, down 0.27 of a cent.Elsewhere in commodities, the December gold contract gave back $1.60 to US$1,303.00 an ounce.The November natural gas contract was down five cents at US$2.95 per mmBTU and the December copper contract was up 11 cents to US$3.24 a pound.Follow @DaveHTO on Twitter.
