Mikel Arteta is adamant that Arsenal are trying their hardest to sign Houssem Aouar (Getty)Mikel Arteta insists Arsenal are trying their hardest to sign Houssem Aouar from Lyon before the end of the transfer window.Arsenal have already had multiple bids for the midfielder rejected by Lyon but the Gunners are expected to submit another offer before the window closes on October 5.Lyon rejected an offer of £32 million from Arsenal last week and are holding out for a fee closer to £55m.Arsenal have also attempted to include Matteo Guendouzi as part of their bid to sign Aouar, however, Lyon are not interested in signing the midfielder who is yet to make an appearance for the Gunners this season.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTWhen asked about a potential move for Aouar, Arteta replied: ‘Well, I am very confident in what we are trying to do internally. [I am getting] clarity and support from everybody at the club to try and improve the team if we can. ‘But most importantly as well, to get the right balance in the squad, for now and the way we want to evolve the squad in the future. We are all very much aligned but I’m afraid that I cannot give you any updates or news.‘I think it is a crucial moment because in the end it defines the people, the players, the balance and the quality that you’re going to have for the rest of the season.

The 51-year-old Rochester Hills resident said he hoped a strike could be settled quickly, but that union members were on the line to back the union and its bargainers. “We’re just here to support them,” said Coppinger, who said leaflets were passed out indicating that the strike was on. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Workers walked off the job and began picketing today outside some General Motors Corp. plants in Detroit after a late morning United Auto Workers strike deadline passed, but the union’s national leadership hadn’t publicly announced whether a strike had begun. The UAW had extended its contract for nine days after it expired on Sept. 14, but the negotiations became bogged down Sunday, apparently over the union’s quest to protect jobs by getting the company to guarantee that new vehicles would be built in U.S. factories. The UAW hasn’t called a nationwide strike during contract negotiations since 1976, when Ford Motor Co. plants were shut down. There were strikes at two GM plants during contract negotiations in 1996. Charlie Coppinger, who has worked at GM’s powertrain plant in Warren for 31 years, walked the picket line along with a handful of others shortly after the deadline passed.

ROSAMOND – State officials are planning to spend $650,000 to clean up contaminated soil and waste slag at a defunct auto salvage yard in Rosamond. The proposed cleanup is to dig up about 6,150 cubic yards of slag and soil contaminated with high levels of lead and arsenic and bury it on the property in a cell capped with asphalt, clay or concrete. The state’s Department of Toxic Substances Control is seeking public comment through Dec. 5 on their proposed cleanup method for S.R. Kilby, a 7.4-acre site at 2021 15th St. W. A draft plan can be reviewed at the Wanda Kirk Library, 3611 West Rosamond Blvd. Public comments on the plan should be sent to Ruben Medina, DTSC project manager, 1515 Tollhouse Road, Clovis, CA 93611 or e-mailed to [email protected] From December 1982 through January 1983, a towing company leased a Quonset hut on the site for automotive repair and salvage operations. From 1987 to the present, the Quonset hut has been used to store scrap airplane parts, according to a site history compiled by the department. Sometime before 1987, someone deposited slag along the entire western length of the site. The slag pile was 6 feet wide and 4 feet deep. Samples taken in 1987 showed lead concentrations as high as 41,300 parts per million – more than 40 times the level at which state standards require cleanup – in the slag pile. The state had the area fenced off and warning signs were posted. In November 1998, the DTSC ordered the property owner to investigate the extent of the contamination but no action was taken, according to state officials. The state spent approximately $175,000 on soil testing in 2000 to determine the extent and location of the contamination. The Kilby property is one of 34 sites in Rosamond and Mojave that came under the state’s review as part of an investigation into a cluster of nine childhood cancer cases that occurred in Rosamond between 1975 and 1986. No cause was ever identified for the cancer cluster, but the investigation revealed a number of sites contaminated by lead and other potentially cancer-causing chemicals.

The state also plans to cover the soil and slag with plastic sheeting to keep dust down until the contaminated material can be buried. Soil samples would be collected from the areas that have been dug out to make sure the contaminated material is gone. The dug-out areas would be filled in with clean soil. A deed restriction would be put on the property to ensure the material remains buried. “The site will be monitored,” said DTSC spokeswoman Jeanne Garcia. After reviewing public comments, the department will make a decision as to whether to approve the cleanup plan or amend it. If approved, the cleanup would begin this winter.

Cardale Jones Women Sports Fans 4Twitter hasn’t been the best place for Cardale Jones. There was, of course, the “I didn’t come here to play school” incident a couple years ago. There has also been the trolling of Joakim Noah and the transferring to Akron prank that upset some of his fans. Then, last night, the Ohio State national champion-winning quarterback appeared to mock women sports fans during the NBA Finals. Jones’ account tweeted the following last night: @CJ12_ @CJ12_ @CJ12_ Jones, though, claims he was hacked.I need to change my Twitter password— Cardale Jones (@CJ12_) June 5, 2015BTW, those wasn’t my tweets about females and sports, I don’t comment on race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, politics or gender, goodnight— Cardale Jones (@CJ12_) June 5, 2015people wait patiently just to see when you screw up, go stalk someone else’s social media— Cardale Jones (@CJ12_) June 5, 2015The “I was hacked” defense when some poor-tasting tweets are sent out is an unbelievable one in most cases, but maybe Jones is telling the truth.
