By billing twice in one month the town can now send a water bill reflecting the previous month.If customers have trouble paying both bills in September a payment schedule can be set up on an individual basis.

The players were gregarious, the fans were all smiles and the sounds from the Spirit of Troy marching band were blaring in the vicinity.Pick-me-up · USC senior wide receiver Ronald Johnson (83) and redshirt freshman fullback Hunter Simmons talk with a child at the USC Childrens Hospital Los Angeles on Monday. The players were two of 16 football players to make the annual visit this year. – Photo courtesy of USC Sports Information This, however, was not the postgame celebration following the USC Trojans’ 48-14 rout of Cal inside the Coliseum on Saturday afternoon.Rather, the setting for this intimate gathering marked a far different experience for the Cardinal and Gold than any conference win could provide: the team’s annual visit to the USC Childrens Hospital Los Angeles.Just two days after the Trojans put on an aerial display against the Cal Golden Bears, 16 student-athletes from the football team, the USC Song Girls and members of the marching band made their way to the Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center to take part in a day that was defined not by sacks and touchdown passes, but simply by giving back.Decked out in their home uniforms, the players — which included senior quarterback Mitch Mustain, senior wide receiver Ronald Johnson, junior defensive tackle Jurrell Casey, senior tight end Jordan Cameron and reigning Pac-10 Special Teams Player of the Week senior kicker Joe Houston — were hands on from the moment they entered the door.From playing Connect Four to racing fire trucks, to USC-themed arts and crafts, the Trojans’ annual visit to the center was more than a glorified photo-op — it was a chance to step away from the limelight on campus and into the reality that many of the hospital’s patients face every day.“It’s always fun to see these kids, to see them light up,” Mustain said. “Being in a hospital is never fun, there is a reason why they are there, and issues they have to deal with everyday. A lot of it is serious stuff that they can’t even comprehend, so it’s nice to get them out of that element for a little while, and get them to do something else.”What began as a day characterized by community outreach ended up as a unique bonding experience for the players outside the white lines of the playing field.Although the initial intent of the visit was to raise the children’s spirits, hours later it was the players who said they left with a newfound appreciation that can’t be found in a jam-packed stadium or daily practices.“I’ve done this a number of times, but it doesn’t get old to me,” Johnson said. “These kids would love to be in our position, so to come down and talk to them and give them encouragement, it feels great to me. It’s what we need to do as athletes.”The team’s visit comes on the heels of a matchup with No. 1 Oregon on Oct. 30, giving the players a chance to represent the university off the field before they enter the biggest game they will face all season.According to Prater, despite a showdown with the Ducks fast approaching, the importance of the visit was too high to forgo, noting that, in addition to helping the children, the trip to the hospital also benefits the USC players themselves.“When you look back to when you were their age, kids are always looking up to somebody,” Prater said. “So to be in a position to be a model for these kids is inspiring for them and makes us look back and respect where we come from. It humbles us.”
Jalen Carey missed his first three shots on Saturday, including two 3s. In crunch time against long-time Syracuse rival Georgetown, Carey held the ball in the left corner with the shot clock under five seconds. Carey took a dribble, then stepped back behind the 3-point line. He gathered his feet and rose up, flicking the ball toward the basket. “It felt good” off his hand, Carey said. But it hit the rim, then the backboard, then the rim again. After rolling around, though, it fell through.“He had to take that 3,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said. “And it hit every part of the backboard and rim that it could. Fortunately, it stayed down.”Carey came back and swatted a shot at the other end in a key sequence in Syracuse’s (7-2) comeback 72-71 win over Georgetown (7-2) on Saturday. Although the freshman finished with just the lone basket, paired with four assists, he stepped up when Frank Howard sat out with foul trouble and eventually fouled out. Without the little plays Carey made in the second half, SU’s comeback could have come up short. With Carey’s 16 second-half minutes playing a part, the Orange scored 50 second-half points.“Trying to be a leader out there,” Carey said. “Still learning a lot of stuff, but it was a great win to be able to fight back and just show what we are as a team.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn the first half, Boeheim rotated through his bench unsuccessfully. Carey spent seven minutes on the floor but didn’t shoot and turned the ball over twice.At the break, Syracuse trailed by 13. Carey said the Orange had let missed shots get to them in the first half. The halftime message was simply to defend regardless of field goal percentage. Carey didn’t have to wait long to re-enter, as Howard picked up his third and fourth fouls, and the freshman checked in less than two and a half minutes into the second half.“Obviously we want to have Frank out there, he’s our leader, he’s our senior,” sophomore Oshae Brissett said. “But I feel like Jalen does a great job getting in there, staying poised and running the offense perfectly.”That’s when Carey began to attack. He drove right before spinning back toward the lane and dumping the ball off to Paschal Chukwu. SU’s 7-foot-2 center dropped the ball through the rim for a bucket.More Coverage 2nd half boost, hot shooting and more takeaways from Syracuse’s win over GeorgetownTyus Battle’s game-winner lifts Syracuse to win over former conference foe Georgetown Published on December 8, 2018 at 7:49 pm Contact Billy: [email protected] | @Wheyen3 Three SU possessions later, Carey pushed the ball on a fast break in the center of the floor. Brissett filled his lane along the left wing. As Carey reached the foul line, he stopped and led Brissett to the rim with a bounce pass. The sophomore forward finished off the glass, and Syracuse was within three.“Jalen did a great job pushing the ball, keeping them guessing, and it was easy to get those buckets,” Brissett said.However, the freshman moments that Boeheim referred to after the game occurred. Chukwu stole a pass, but then Carey turned the ball right back to the Hoyas. The 6-foot-3 guard air-balled a 3, well long, from the corner. The misses continued when Carey drove right and missed with his arm outstretched toward the backboard. There was contact, but no foul. The next trip, after a Georgetown 3, Carey took a 3 from the top of the key and missed. Boeheim sent Howard back in with his four fouls.“Jalen got open shots, and he’s not the right guy right now,” Boeheim said. “He doesn’t understand that yet.”Between that misfire and Howard’s foul out, less than two minutes of game time later, SU assistant Gerry McNamara spoke with Carey. He told the freshman that the next shot he’d take would “be a big one.” And McNamara told Carey, “I know you’re gonna knock it down,” Carey said.After Carey checked back in, he didn’t have to wait long for his shot. With about 2:35 to go, the ball was kicked to Carey in the left corner. Just like McNamara said, it was a big one. Just like McNamara said, Carey drained it, with a little help from a friendly home rim.“It’s so crazy,” Carey said. “It’s like he saw what was gonna happen before it happened … After the game he came up to me and said, ‘I told you.’”Saturday’s game was a lot different for Carey than the first game SU opposed an old Big East foe, Nov. 15 against UConn. That day, Carey scored 26, but Syracuse lost. Against Georgetown, Carey recognized a similarity in the physicality of another Big East opponent. But the rest varied. It wasn’t a homecoming for Carey in New York City but just a home game in the Carrier Dome. It wasn’t a career-high for Carey, but just three points. Most importantly to Carey, though, it wasn’t a loss. It was an Orange win.“I don’t think about who we’re playing against,” Carey said. “Everybody we play against, I’m trying to chop their head off.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+
