Cowboys need to pay Ezekiel Elliott because ‘they’re running him to death,’ Eric Dickerson says “Our goal is to get deals done,” executive vice president Stephen Jones said on 105.3 The Fan earlier this week. “Our problem is we have a distribution dilemma. It’s our job to manage the (salary) cap, and we’re trying to divide the pie.”Other offensive stars including quarterback Dak Prescott and receiver Amari Cooper are in the final year of their rookie contracts, which has caused talks to shift from focusing on Elliott.”The money’s going out the door, it just depends on who gets what,” Stephen Jones said. Ezekiel Elliott contract: Cowboys star’s no deal-no play ultimatum ‘news to us,’ COO says Irvin acknowledged the team could still do well without the league’s leading rusher, but the former Cowboys wide receiver, who helped the team to three of its five Super Bowl wins, doesn’t think Dallas will see that glory again without the star in the backfield.“You may win games. You may sell tickets. And, you may make some money,” Irvin said. “But that nectar, you will not drink without Ezekiel Elliott.”Elliott earned his second rushing title in three years with 1,434 yards on a league-high 304 carries with six touchdowns last season, while adding 77 receptions for 567 yards with three touchdowns.He has been working out to stay in shape in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, according to multiple reports, but will not return to the team without a new deal, ESPN noted, citing a source close to the situation.But, the same report added, Elliott holding out into the regular season is not likely at this time. Dallas opens its season Sept. 8 against the Giants. Dak Prescott talks Ezekiel Elliott holdout: ‘Business is business’ Jerry Jones doesn’t seem to think the Cowboys need Ezekiel Elliott to win a Super Bowl, but one Dallas legend thinks otherwise.Michael Irvin recently voiced his opinion on Elliott’s holdout, which has stretched to the first week of the preseason, and Jones’ stance that Dallas can make it to and even win the Super Bowl without the two-time Pro Bowl running back. “I know for a fact before Jerry Jones leaves time and go to eternity, he wants to drink the sweet nectar of a championship again,” Irvin said, via TMZ Sports. “And, that nectar he will not partake in without Ezekiel Elliott.”Jones recently said “you don’t have to have a rushing champion to win a Super Bowl” as questions surrounding Dallas’ intentions to work out a new deal with Elliott heighten.

Facebook156Tweet0Pin0Submitted by SideWalkToday, SideWalk volunteers helped their 1,500th participant escape homelessness and move into a safe place to call home.“This is a big thing,” said Phil Owen, Executive Director of SideWalk. “People on the streets rely on SideWalk as the fastest path to leave homelessness behind, and we’re proud to have served so many people. We did this because of our committed team of volunteers and strong community support, and I want to thank them for keeping us going.”SideWalk’s Rapid Re-Housing program, started in 2012, helps on average about 300 people per year move into a new home. It offers advocacy, support, and small amounts of short-term rental assistance to help people experiencing homelessness overcome financial barriers to moving in to a safe place to call home. Roughly 80% of the people served via SideWalk’s Rapid Re-Housing program are still off the streets one year after placement. Currently, accounting for all costs such as direct cash assistance and overhead, it costs SideWalk on average $1,047 to help one person experiencing homelessness escape the streets – period.Indicating its continued improvement, SideWalk volunteers helped their 500th person escape homelessness in September 2015, after 3 years of operations. 4 years later, SideWalk volunteers helped another 1000 people.“We won’t rest on our laurels, though,” Phil Owen said. “While we’re proud of our accomplishments, we know the need for our work will continue. If you’re experiencing homelessness, SideWalk volunteers are here to help.” People experiencing homelessness can visit http://walkthurston.org/gethelp to learn more about SideWalk’s work and how their volunteers help.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Among the trombones, drums and flutes inside Cougar Stadium will be four local high school marching bands competing against one another, a rare event. With so many competitions around town, marching bands from host Hart High School and Saugus, Canyon and Valencia high schools usually jam in different competitions. Band students usually practice at school more than 10 hours during the week and often on Saturdays. This weekend’s event will show just how those long hours are paying off. “I’ve seen a lot of improvement,” said John Freeman, band director at Canyon. “The kids are taking a lot of ownership to the show.” Students at Canyon have gone from fumbling around on the field to taking precision steps since they began the routine in August, Freeman said. Last year, the high school scored fifth out of sixth at the event. Freeman expects this year will bring different results. For the Valencia High marching band, Saturday’s event is the third competition this year. Band director Bob Babko said participation in competitions is based on how well students’ musical skills progress. But the 85-member band already has taken first place at a Simi Valley competition in October and is off to a good start. “They work unbelievably hard,” Babko said. “We practice for hours and hours and hours.” At Hart High, the marching band hopes that high scores on Saturday and at another upcoming event will launch it to the championships. The 100-member band has won the championships in it division for the past three years. “They work very hard to achieve the success that they have,” said Anthony Bailey, director of bands.

SANTA CLARITA – Rat-a-tat-tat. Sis-boom-ba. Boom. Boom. Boom. Those sounds and more will fill the air Saturday as 36 high school marching bands bang, whistle and strum their way through an all-day competition at College of the Canyons. Known as Rampage, the 22nd annual event pulls high school talent from across Southern California, and teams compete for scores plus a shot at the December championships. Given a 15-minute time frame, each band performs a field show – the event often seen during halftime at football games. Shows are judged by the Southern California School Band & Orchestra Association, a Fountain Valley-based nonprofit organization that focuses on band programs.
