Batesville, In. — The National Council for Home Safety and Security has released their list of the “Safest” Indiana communities. The report is based on information from the FBI Uniformed Crime Report. Cities and towns with populations less than 10,000 were not eligible.A link to the full study is here.
He said: “I don’t like singling out individuals. “But in terms of the whole team – I thought the back four were outstanding. “I thought (Aly) Cissokho, playing his first game for us, was outstanding. “I could go through everyone. I thought Gabby’s (Gabriel Agbonlahor’s) pace was a threat for the whole game. “The three lads in the middle of the pitch, their energy was great. “The whole team performance was excellent. Really good things – a lot of pluses.” Having seen his side pull off an impressive 3-1 win at Arsenal at the start of a 2013/14 campaign which ended with seven defeats in nine games and a 15th-placed finish, Lambert sounded a note of caution over Saturday’s result. But he also emphasised that the feeling this time was “different”. Forward Andreas Weimann grabbed the headlines by notching the only goal of the game in the 50th minute with a shot that squeezed in off goalkeeper Asmir Begovic. But Lambert was keen after the final whistle to put emphasis on the collective effort that had seen Villa claim what was their first competitive win on the road since January 1. Put to him that the triumph at the Britannia Stadium made for a decent beginning to the season, Lambert said: “I said the same last year. “Our season went into freefall after we beat Chelsea (their last game before those final nine matches). “The injuries to Christian (Benteke) and Libor (Kozak) never helped us, and we just stayed up in the last few games. “But this year, it is a totally different feeling. I thought we were outstanding today. “I thought we deserved to win the game – after an initial 10-minute period, I thought we were excellent, everybody, the whole team.” Lambert now has Roy Keane alongside him in the dug-out after the former Manchester United midfielder was appointed his assistant manager over the summer. Keane lived up to his fiery reputation by jumping up a few times and making his feelings known. And Lambert, who insisted he was “not bothered” that Villa fans could be heard chanting Keane’s name rather than his own, said: “I’m not going to tell him to sit down – I’ll let someone else do that! “Roy has been brilliant since he has been here, a massive help to myself and the team. “I’m pretty sure anyone who knows him or saw him playing the game of football, knows he wants to win. “His own career was outstanding, close to one of the best players ever in the Premier League. And for me, as an assistant manager and a friend, he has been outstanding.” The goal came about when the ball broke off Stoke defender Erik Pieters to Weimann, who took a poor first touch. But it came back to him via a combination of Pieters’ team-mates Marc Wilson and Stephen Ireland, teeing the Austria international up to fire in off Begovic. Potters boss Mark Hughes admitted his men should have done better. “It is all about making sure if someone makes a mistake or the ball ricochets, then the very next thing is done correctly and we were probably guilty of consecutive errors there,” Hughes said. “Inevitably, goals come at the end of three or four mistakes. “We need to be better than that. It is a wake up call for us.” Stoke secured their best-ever Premier League finish of ninth under Hughes last term, and the Welshman added: “There was a lot of expectation on us today and maybe that has been tempered somewhat, and maybe that is no bad thing, because we know this is a season when we are going to have to work hard.” Potters forward Bojan Krkic was among several players on the field making their competitive debuts for their new clubs after summer transfers. Regarding the 23-year-old Spaniard’s performance, Hughes said: “It was important he got some game time. He showed glimpses in certain situations. “We need to be able to find him in those areas more often. We will have to make sure he plays in the right games against the right opposition and we get the best out of him. Today we weren’t able to.” Manager Paul Lambert felt Aston Villa were “outstanding” throughout the team in their 1-0 Barclays Premier League opening-day victory at Stoke. Press Association
NFL free agency rumors: Teddy Bridgewater to re-sign with Saints With Tannehill now on board, Titans general manager Jon Robinson said Friday the team will release Blaine Gabbert, who backed up Mariota last season. Tannehill, who will turn 31 in July, had been Miami’s starter when healthy since 2012, when the Dolphins selected him with the eighth overall pick in the draft. He started 11 games last season, completing 64.2 percent of his passes for 1,979 yards with 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Marcus Mariota has an experienced new backup. The Titans announced Friday they have acquired Ryan Tannehill from the Dolphins in a deal that also involves three draft picks. Tennessee will also get a 2019 sixth-round pick in the deal, with Miami receiving a 2019 seventh-round pick and a fourth-round selection in 2020. His departure leaves Miami with only two quarterbacks under contract: Jake Rudock and Luke Falk. “We would like to thank Ryan for his commitment to the Miami Dolphins over the last seven seasons,” Dolphins general manager Chris Grier said in a release. “Ryan is a tireless worker who always put the team first. We wish him the best with the next step of his career.” #Titans acquire QB Ryan Tannehill (@ryantannehill1) from the Dolphins🚨 Trade Alert 🚨 » https://t.co/toVdZoeC9R pic.twitter.com/zDr4xIEbuT— Tennessee Titans (@Titans) March 15, 2019Tannehill’s agents, who initially announced the trade on social media, said the veteran QB had signed a restructured one-year contract with Tennessee. The reworked deal guarantees him $7 million in 2019 and could top $12 million with incentives, NFL Media said. ESPN reported Miami will pay $5 million of that guarantee. Related News
AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersLuke Walton has said the Lakers (33-43) should focus on playing their own game rather than try to serve as a playoff spoiler. The two objectives inherently go hand-in-hand. Wins will benefit the Lakers and disrupt the natural order of the playoff race.That said, after scoring 83 points and losing to the 25-win Kings on Sunday, those victories might be hard to count on.“We’re going to have to play a lot better for the remainder of the season,” Walton said. “We’ve got some really good teams that are coming to town that are playing for something pretty significant. So we’re going to have to elevate our game a lot or it’s going to be a long six games to end the season.”Either way, Tuesday will mark the Lakers’ final game outside of Staples Center, with four of their final games home games and the finale against the Clippers a designated road game.“We just want to go out with a bang, period,” Kuzma said. “Whether it’s last road game or last home game we really just want to keep capitalizing, keep winning so.” HART OF TEXASHere’s a back-to-back-to-back you don’t see every day: After logging 26 minutes in the Lakers’ loss on Friday, Josh Hart was on a private jet to San Antonio to cheer for his alma mater Villanova in the men’s NCAA semifinals.In a locker room with diverse college representations, Hart found himself going into the finale of March Madness at odds with General Manager Rob Pelinka, who won a national title with Michigan in 1989.It raises the question: Can a rookie talk trash to the man who made the call to draft him?“That’s allowed,” Hart said. “I can talk trash to anybody – besides Jesus Christ, that’s the only one I will not talk trash to.”Hart was on the court when Villanova won the title in 2016. He described the run to the title as “the most fun you ever have playing basketball, especially when you win it.”“We were just having fun,” Hart said. “The Final Four can be a circus at times, but that’s some of the most fun basketball you’ll ever have.” SALT LAKE CITY — It will be at least another year before the Lakers are in the playoff race themselves. For a franchise on the rise, however, the final six games of this current campaign present an opportunity to play a hand in the fortunes of teams jockeying for postseason position.If teams such as the Jazz, Spurs and Timberwolves are going to reach the playoffs, the Lakers can at least make them earn it.“Every team is going to play their A-game,” rookie forward Kyle Kuzma said following the Lakers’ 84-83 loss to the Sacramento Kings on Sunday evening. “Because they’re trying to make the playoffs and trying to keep that seed, so for us we just want to win.”Starting against Utah (44-33) on Tuesday, the Lakers will only face teams in the Western Conference playoff hunt from here on out, although the Clippers (41-36) are perilously close to being eliminated and might be out of the race by the time they clash with the Lakers in the season finale.

Nikorima has been left out of the Broncos side to play South Sydney tomorrow with Brisbane coach Anthony Seibold saying he needed time to ponder his future.Seibold has said he couldn’t guarantee the out of form Nikorima a future at the NRL club beyond 2020.An announcement on Nikorima’s early release from the Broncos is believed to be imminent and Kearney confirmed the Warriors had offered Nikorima a four year deal from 2020 but Brisbane appear ready to let him go sooner although Kearney was sensitive about discussing Nikorima’s immediate future.”Whatever happens this year or (in the future) that’s in the (Broncos and Kodi Nikorima’s agent) hands and that’s all I need to say about that,” said Kearney.”I’m happy to talk about Sunday’s match and who’s available and who’s not available but that’s all I have to say on the (Nikorima) matter.”Senior Warriors players have dismissed concerns about Nikorima’s patchy form for Brisbane saying his arrival at the club would be a “great buy”.”I think it genuinely is going to be a great buy for the club,” said hooker Isaac Luke.Kearney was happier to talk about the NRL conceding a refereeing error effectively cost his side a win over the Melbourne Storm last week.The NRL’s head of football Graham Annesley said earlier this week that the referees made an error in awarding Melbourne a decisive penalty in the Storm’s 13-12 win.While frustrated Kearney said it’s good the NRL can admit the mistake “which wasn’t always the way in the past.””I get that everyone makes mistake but in that situation it was pretty tough to take given the circumstances of the game but you’ve got to live with it and I am hoping that we get a couple of those (decisions going our way) in the near future.
