Now radio personality and real estate commentator Kevin Turner has sold his own family home – complete with its own sound-proof recording studio – for $785,000.The house at 31 Allan Street in Kedron sold under the hammer on Saturday, with three active bidders vying for the renovated three bedroom home.

Ms Copping said the lucky buyers were represented by a local buyers agent on the day. She said the buyers were from Sydney and were looking at renting the property.“We are seeing a bit more of that (buyers agents acting on behalf of buyers),” she said. “They are acting for the investors who see the value in the Brisbane market, but also the owner occupiers looking to move up, or for those professions that just don’t allow time for buyers to proactively look at properties.“Properties are selling quite quickly, especially in the inner north, which is sought-after because it has fantastic schools, transport links and amenities.”More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus12 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market12 hours agoPrior to the auction, and the election for that matter, Mr Turner told the Courier Mail that he was confident in the local market, and there had been strong interest in the property with big numbers through the open homes.

Mr Turner said the other advantage of the property was that it was in a pocket not zoned for units.“While there is a lot of density nearby … we’re in an area that is residential but benefits from the additional infrastructure in terms of cafes and shops.” The home has three good-sized bedrooms with built-in wardrobes and an ensuite to the main, a U-shaped kitchen and an open-plan living and dining area opening to the deck.Outside there is the separate studio space that could be used as a home office of teenager’s retreat. The property has a private backyard with established gardens and plenty of lawn space for the children or pets to play.

Kamryn McCool threw a shutout and the whole lineup was hitting as Franklin County got out to an early lead on Lawrenceburg and never looked back in an 11-0 victory on Monday.

“I don’t think we’ve played with fear at all this season,” said Martinez, who has won at the Emirates with Wigan in April 2012. “We beat Chelsea at home and to beat Manchester United away showed an incredible improvement to our performance from Manchester City (Everton’s only defeat of the season so far back in October). “I felt when we went to City we didn’t have the right belief in our performance but I think we showed that at Old Trafford. “Arsenal deserve a lot of respect because if you win 11 of your first 14 games you are the outstanding team in the competition. “We are looking at ourselves to try to use this as a terrific test to see how quickly we can improve and challenge these sides. “The Emirates Stadium is one of the hardest places to go and be yourself. “Arsenal as an attacking team are as good as it gets and their movement and forward play requires maximum concentration in everything you do. “From our point of view we are ready for that test. We are excited about challenging the best team in the league so far.” In Everton’s favour ahead of Sunday’s game is their defensive record, which is the top-flight’s equal best with Southampton at 13 in 14 matches. They have kept five clean sheets in their last six matches with only Liverpool having breached them in the 3-3 Merseyside derby. However, from open play Everton have not conceded since Yannick Sagbo scored for Hull on October 19 and Martinez said that shows how well the team is working. “The old cliche that defenders are there to defend and attackers are there to attack doesn’t work any more,” said the Spaniard. “In the modern game as a team you defend with 11 players and you attack with 11 players and it has been important that we work as a unit. “Everyone is really clear in the roles we have and at the moment we have terrific focus and intensity in our performances and that shows not only at the back but going forward. “We went to Old Trafford and we had a left-back in the 18-yard box scoring in the 86th minute – that shows the responsibility the players take in both roles.” Martinez said that team ethic extended beyond the starting XI, citing the case of Nikica Jelavic. The Croatia international has started just two league matches since Romelu Lukaku arrived on loan: one of those was against Chelsea when the Belgium international was ineligible to face his parent club and the other was the following week at West Ham when he was replaced at half-time by Lukaku who went on to score the winner. “He has been working incredibly hard behind the scenes,” said the manager. “Every player wants to start, you need to have that in your nature otherwise you will never be a professional footballer. “But in the same manner I think it has been key in pushing other players to be at their best. “He has been setting really good standards in training and he is a vital player for us. “People from outside look in and think it is about the players who start but there is a bigger picture than that. “Bryan Oviedo (who has scored twice in as many appearances standing in for the injured Leighton Baines) has been a really good example for any footballer who needs to be ready behind the scenes. “When you get the opportunity there are no excuses. Niki is in the same boat and is ready to help the team when needed.” The Toffees ended a run of 21 years without a win at Old Trafford in midweek and are now looking to break a similar, if slightly shorter, sequence on the Gunners’ home turf. Graham Stuart and Andrei Kanchelskis were the goalscorers when Everton last won at Arsenal in January 1996 but Martinez has brought a belief to the club – strengthened by the win over United – which raises hopes of an end to their misery in north London. Everton manager Roberto Martinez believes victory over defending champions Manchester United was ideal preparation for taking on current league leaders Arsenal. Press Association
For nearly 58 minutes Friday, Syracuse held the country’s leader in assists per game in check. But with just more than two minutes to play in regulation of a tie game, Clarkson’s Jamie Lee Rattray broke loose.‘I think when you’re a good player like that and you don’t have enough space to skate and go around you get a little frustrated,’ SU forward Margot Scharfe said.Rattray entered the game with eight assists and her two per game average were best in the nation. Ultimately, though, she was the beneficiary of a well-placed feed from a teammate and beat the Orange with a rare goal.After being shut down for 57 minutes and 19 seconds, Rattray, a sophomore, took a pass from Brittany Styner behind the Syracuse (2-4, 0-0 College Hockey America) defense to beat SU goalkeeper Kallie Billadeau for the game-winner. Though the Orange contained Rattray for nearly the entire game, it was a late momentary lapse that left SU on the short end of a 3-2 loss to Clarkson in front of 311 people at Tennity Ice Pavilion.On Sunday, Syracuse lost 4-2 to Clarkson on the road to finish out the weekend series.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Orange came out of the locker room a little flat on Friday but avoided falling behind. Clarkson hit the post three times in the first period, but SU was the first to score by way of Scharfe’s first goal of the season in the 12th minute.Though the Golden Knights answered six minutes later on a putback by Gabrielle Kosziwka, they failed to cash in on a power play with less than 40 seconds left in the first period.SU was able to kill off the penalty, leaving the Golden Knights — the fourth best power-play team in the country — visibly frustrated.‘If you’re on a penalty kill, if you kill it you energize the team,’ SU head coach Paul Flanagan said. ‘It energizes the bench and builds our momentum.’Especially frustrated was Clarkson’s star forward Rattray. With just more than 14 minutes remaining in the second period, Rattray collided with Billadeau and was sent to the penalty box for two minutes for interference. Later in the period, Rattray appeared to have beaten Billadeau for a go-ahead goal when the goal light went off, but the officials waved it off. After missing another opportunity, an exasperated Rattray threw her hands in the air.It appeared to be that kind of day for Rattray.Syracuse’s momentum continued to grow in the waning minutes of the second period when Nicole Ferrara and Shiann Darkangelo committed penalties within nine seconds of each other. This left the Golden Knights with a five-on-three advantage for 1:51.But the Orange penalty kill again stepped up, killing off the two-man disadvantage and keeping the score tied going into the third period.SU appeared to have successfully capitalized on its momentum throughout much of the third period. After outshooting Clarkson 15-8 in the second period, the margin stretched to 14-4 in the third.But despite outshooting the Golden Knights, Kosziwa again found the back of the net for Clarkson, this time on a slap shot that flipped over Billadeau and across the goal line.As the puck flipped up and over the goaltender, Kallie Goodnough was there trying to knock the puck out of the air. Though unsuccessful, the SU defender would redeem herself shortly thereafter.Less than seven minutes later, Goodnough gathered a loose puck and beat Erica Howe for a game-tying goal.‘That’s probably the most consistent effort we’ve put forth all year,’ Flanagan said.In the end, the Orange defense that had been steady had lost sight of Rattray. She couldn’t be held in check in the game’s closing moments and defeated Syracuse with her scoring ability as opposed to her well-respected passing.‘It was a great play,’ Flanagan said. ‘It was a beautiful pass, and we just didn’t have the coverage. We have to tighten up a bit.‘ … All in all, we can’t hang our heads. A lot of positives.’firstname.lastname@example.org Published on October 16, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact David: email@example.com | @DBWilson2 Comments Facebook Twitter Google+
Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Stiviano reminded Sterling in the audio that she is half Mexican, half African-American.“I don’t know if I’m surprised or not,” Rivers said.Sterling was once sued for for wrongful termination by former Clippers general manager Elgin Baylor, who accused Sterling of age discrimination as well as racism; the racism claim was dropped before the beginning of the trial, which ended in favor of Sterling.“I didn’t like the comments, obviously,” Rivers said. “I’ll tell you now I’m speaking on behalf of the team. The players are not going to deal with this issue. We had a great team meeting this morning about it. A lot of guys voiced their opinion and none of them were happy about it.”Johnson, the former Lakers star who is now part-owner of the Dodgers, sent out these SAN FRANCISCO — It’s no secret Clippers coach Doc Rivers abhors racism, so he was not in his typically jovial mood when he met with reporters Saturday after practice at the University of San Francisco.Rivers and his players, who will take on Golden State at 12:30 p.m. Sunday at Oracle Arena in Oakland in Game 4 of their Western Conference playoff series, were staggered by the alleged racist comments made by their owner Donald Sterling.TMZ early Saturday morning released a nearly 10-minute audio of what was allegedly Sterling scolding his girlfriend, V. Stiviano, for hanging out with African-Americans.This is one of many damaging remarks that centered on Stiviano having posed for a picture with Magic Johnson at a recent Clippers game: “It bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast … that you’re associating with black people. Do you have to?” tweets: “I will never go to a Clippers game again as long as Donald Sterling is the owner.“I feel sorry for my friends Coach Doc Rivers and Chris Paul that they have to work for a man that feels that way about African-Americans.”The NBA has launched an investigation into the situation.During halftime of the Indiana-Atlanta game Saturday, TNT analyst Charles Barkley said this will be the first test for new NBA commissioner Adam Silver.“L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling’s comments about African-Americans are a black eye for the NBA,” Barkley said. “(Silver) has to suspend this guy. This is habitual. He has already had the lawsuit for discrimination that he settled. So clearly he was doing something wrong. This is the first big test. (Silver) has to suspend this guy. He has to suspend this guy.”As for Clippers’ Chris Paul and Blake Griffin, they adhered to what Rivers said, that they would not address the issue at this time.“Basketball questions,” Paul said, when asked about Sterling.Said Griffin: “I mean, we’re here to play basketball. So what Doc said, goes.”
Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum For the seventh time in his career and the first time as a Clipper, Kawhi Leonard earned Player of the Week recognition from the NBA on Monday.For his play between Jan. 13-19, Leonard was named as the Western Conference honoree after averaging 38 points on 58.6 percent shooting to lead the Clippers (30-13) to three victories. Philadelphia 76ers guard-forward Ben Simmons earned the Eastern Conference honor.With fellow All-Star Paul George sidelined all week with a strained left hamstring, the businesslike Leonard averaged 4.7 rebounds, 5 assists and 2.7 steals, 1 blocked shot and shot 52.4 percent from 3-point range in that span, during which he logged 31 minutes per game.The forward from Moreno Valley made some personal history with a career-best 43 points in a victory over Cleveland, when he became the third player in the shot-clock era to score that many points in 29 minutes or fewer. Leonard also inserted himself into the Clippers’ record books, becoming just the third player in franchise history to score at least 30 points in five consecutive games. “He’s a superstar in this league,” Clippers forward/center Montrezl Harrell said when asked last week about Leonard’s impact on the court. “It’s not anything new to me.” “I try not to, because they change every other day,” said Williams, who is averaging 24 points and shooting 49.6 percent from the field in eight games this month, when George has played only twice. “At this point, it really don’t really matter.”On Jan. 13, the Clippers woke up as the fifth seed. One week later, they were in second, 4½ games behind the conference-leading Lakers – but just three games above the sixth-seeded Houston Rockets (26-15). The Clippers have 39 regular-season games left.“It’s too early to be looking at that stuff,” Moe Harkless said. “As the season winds down a little bit, maybe after All-Star break, we’ll probably pay closer attention to it. But right now, personally, I think it’s too early.”Center Ivica Zubac admitted he’ll have a look, but he insisted that he won’t dwell on what he sees.“We look at the standings,” he said, “but we’re also looking at the bigger picture and trying to improve every day.” For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 Clippers’ Paul George: ‘If I make shots, this series could be a little different’ Game 4 photos: Luka Doncic, Mavs shock Clippers in overtime Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error WHERE THEY STANDDon’t look now, but the Clippers woke up Monday as the second seed in the wild Western Conference standings.No, really, don’t look.The Clippers claim they aren’t. (Most of them, anyway.)“I couldn’t tell you where anyone is at,” Rivers said. “I know this: If we play better, the standings will take care of itself. If you don’t, I can look at them all day and they still are going to stay the same.”Reinserting George into the lineup would help take care of it. The Clippers are hopeful he can return from a now-five-game absence because of a strained left hamstring during this current trip, Rivers told reporters at Monday’s practice in Dallas.Meanwhile, veteran guard Lou Williams has said he too avoids peeking at where the Clippers stand.Related Articles On Tuesday, Leonard has an opportunity to equal his personal record of six consecutive 30-point-plus outings when the Clippers and the Mavericks face off in Dallas (5:30 p.m., Fox Sports Prime Ticket).Coach Doc Rivers all but predicted the 6-foot-7 star’s current tear, saying on Jan. 10 that Leonard – who took the summer off and, since the season began, has adhered to protocol calling for him to avoid playing back-to-back games because of an ongoing injury to the patella tendon in his left knee – was looking noticeably healthy and consistently stronger.“He is in a far better place now than he was in Game 1,” Rivers said after Leonard led the Clippers past Golden State. “You can see it with him, you can see it in the practices. It’s just going up, you can feel it, you can see it, he has a better thrust now.”Leonard, who is averaging career-highs in points (26.9) and assists (5.1) this season, said his coach had it right: “I feel better, I’m able to jump without it grabbing too much.”That’s been welcome news for the Clippers, who have leaned heavily on Leonard lately, especially in their three victories this past week over Cleveland, Orlando and New Orleans, when his usage percentage (the amount of team plays used by a player when he is on the floor) was 38.4 percent, according to nba.com/stats. That’s up from his season-long 33.7 percentage, which is a career-high.
