Win some, lose some … a lot in a row for streaky Flyers

Published

on

By DAN GELSTON

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Check out all those consecutive Ws of late on the Philadelphia schedule, and the Flyers should seem like a team headed to the playoffs.

But check out all those recent Ls.

With a 4-1 loss to the Los Angeles Kings on Monday, the Flyers’ six-game winning streak came to an end. Not since the 1966-67 Toronto Maple Leafs has a team followed a 10-game winless skid with seven straight victories but the Flyers were close.

“You can’t win every single game right now,” Flyers forward Jake Voracek said.

Headed into Wednesday’s game against Detroit, Philadelphia is not in the postseason mix, just two points out of the final wild-card spot in the East. The Flyers like to say they aren’t as bad as the team that dropped 10 straight. But they haven’t shown many flashes of becoming a team that can reel off one or two more six-game winning streaks, either.

“If you’re losing, everything comes like a snowball,” said Voracek, who’s third in the NHL with 41 points. “You don’t feel comfortable to go to the third period with a two-goal lead. It’s really tough to do. And then you get scored on and you’re just like, ‘Here we go again.’”

Last season, the Flyers finished 11th in the Eastern Conference and became the first team in NHL history to miss the playoffs despite a 10-game winning streak.

“The results would say streaky, but we have played good hockey over the whole stretch,” coach Dave Hakstol said. “Now it’s about getting results and we got to look at ourselves and put our finger on a couple things we have to do better and that we are capable of doing better.”

Good enough to sneak into the playoffs?

Hakstol, in his third season, was considered on the hot seat during the 10-game skid until general manager Ron Hextall came out with a vote of confidence. Hextall was the one who made the bold decision to hire Hakstol out of college, in part because of his reputation for molding young talent. Hakstol has tried to balance a youthful mix of Shayne Gostisbehere, Travis Konecny and Nolan Patrick with a veteran core of Voracek, Wayne Simmonds and Claude Giroux.

Progress has been incremental. Veteran center Valtteri Filppula said changes to Philadelphia’s neutral-zone system have helped. And the Flyers have been more careful with the puck.

“Make sure they have to come 200 feet to try to get in our zone, which in the long run, it’s a good way to play,” Filppula said.

Brian Elliott, the NHL’s No. 2 star of the week after posting a 1.31 goals-against average in three victories, has been solid in his first season with Philadelphia.

“That’s a real position of strength for our bench and for the guys that are out on the ice,” Hakstol said. “It’s not just the things that you see on a nightly basis on game nights. Brian does such a good job on a daily basis of approaching his day of work. I think that is something guys can feed off of.”

The Flyers are trying to make their way in the toughest division in the NHL, the Metropolitan. Only eight points separate the last-place Flyers, with 14 wins, from the first-place New Jersey Devils. The Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins have 17 wins and 37 points, six points behind the Devils.

The Flyers hope the six-game streak was simply the start of better days ahead.

“I think it’s confidence, swagger, whatever you want to attach to it, is a big part of this game,” Hakstol said. “You can ask anybody, that’s a big part. You can be playing really well, but when you’re going good you just have that as a group you have that mentality that you’re not going to take less than finding a way to win a game.”

STRUGGLING PENGUINS

The return of goaltender Matt Murray from injury has not helped Pittsburgh, which has lost four of five and five of seven. General manager Jim Rutherford already acquired bottom-six center Riley Sheahan to fill a need but could soon be looking for bigger trades to shake things up.

GAME OF THE WEEK

The surprising Devils host the Blackhawks on Saturday in one of the final games before the Christmas break. Chicago took a five-game winning streak into Thursday’s game at Dallas.

LEADERS (through Monday)

Goals: Alex Ovechkin (Washington) and Nikita Kucherov (Tampa Bay), 23; Assists: Voracek, 33; Points: Kucherov, 46; Wins: Andrei Vasilevskiy (Tampa Bay), 21; Goals-against average: Corey Crawford (Chicago), 2.11; Save percentage: Crawford, .935.

Owner of Elite Tattoo Gallery in Jacksonville is accused of scamming tattoo artists across country

Published

on

The owner of Elite Tattoo Gallery in Jacksonville, North Carolina will soon have to answer to a lawsuit after she allegedly scammed dozens of tattoo artists out of thousands of dollars after she canceled an event.

In a Facebook post by Bryan Thomas, a victim of the alleged scam said Wednesday that in March of this year he signed up for an educational tattoo seminar called “The Impact Project.” Thomas said a ticket to the event cost him $1,600. He received an email earlier Wednesday about the event canceling, and there will be no refunds.

The event is an Indianapolis event organized by local Jacksonville Elite Tattoo Gallery owner, Melissa Ferranto.

According to the Impact Project website, the four-day conference was supposed to be held at the downtown Hilton in September, so artists could collaborate and learn how to best run a successful business.

Impact Project flyer.

Tattoo artists say they received an email Wednesday that “the event and all future events are canceled indefinitely due to unforeseen tragic matters and extreme circumstances. The funds for the ticket sales have been used for the forward progression of the conference” and says they cannot refund any tickets.

READ EMAIL BELOW: 

Email artists received.

Many of the artists say they have contacted their financial institution to dispute the charges, but some are way out of the time frame they can file a dispute.

Fox59 in Indianapolis spoke with a local tattoo artist who said “everything looked real and legit,” but that all changed the night he received an email about the event canceling and that there would be no refunds. (click HERE for their story)

News In Onslow reached out to Melissa Ferranto and she released this statement to us BELOW:

Dear Colleagues, I want to start out by apologizing for the delay in getting this email sent. Please don’t mistake the delay in communication for a lack of concern for what has transpired. We care deeply about each person that has been negatively affected by cancellation of the event.

My intention is to be completely forthright about why the event was cancelled and all other relevant matters. However, instead of providing a piecemeal explanation at this time, I have been advised to wait until I can provide a thorough statement, including an accounting of funds and a final resolution.

Please rest assured that we are working diligently on a remedy. Thank you for your patience and understanding. I send out my sincerest apologies to everyone involved.

Sincerely,

Melissa Ferranto Representative of the Impact Project, Elite Tattoo Gallery and Body Piercing Studio, LLC

Ferranto told News In Onslow that she is represented by an attorney.

Man who killed Sheldon Prawl in 2013 will spend nearly 50 years in prison

Published

on

“Sheldon tried to kill my sister,” Carleton Davis said to Prawl’s mother Beverly Daley as she read her impact statement to the court. 

“I have not only lost one child but two children, and if it was up to me, Davis and Cheri would receive the death penalty,” Daley said.

It took two weeks of trial and nearly 6 hours total of deliberation for a jury to convict 38-year-old Carleton Davis in the death of Sheldon Prawl. 

Today, Carleton Davis, 38, was found guilty of second-degree murder and felony concealment of death. Judge Imelda Pate told Davis that he would spend nearly 50 years in prison. He was sentenced to serve a total of 38-to-48 years in prison. Davis killed Sheldon Prawl in 2013 and put his remains in two-cement filled foot lockers outside a house in Detroit, Michigan. Police later found Prawl’s body after a neighbor reported a bad odor coming from the backyard. 

Davis sister Cheri Davis, has also been charged in the case. She was the girlfriend of Prawl. She has been charged with felony destruction of bodily remains to conceal a death, felony conspiracy, felony accessory after the fact, and felony common law obstruction of justice and she is out of jail on bond. 

Here’s what Carleton Davis had to say to the court before his sentencing BELOW:

Man accused of killing Sheldon Prawl in 2013 won’t testify, evidence is circumstantial

Published

on

A man accused of killing Sheldon Prawl in 2013 will not testify in his murder trial.

Carleton Davis, 38, of Georgia, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 23-year-old Sheldon Prawl.

In court, Assistant District Attorney Mike Maultsby said that Prawl was last seen on Halloween in 2013 and, shortly thereafter, 35-year-old Cheri Lee Davis, Carleton Davis‘ sister, reported him missing. Prawl’s body was found in Detroit, Michigan dismembered in two separate containers filled with cement on May 30, 2014.

In the States closing argument Wednesday afternoon, they spoke about the relationship between Davis and Richard Jackson, who lived next door to the home Prawl’s body was found. Jackson and Davis were pulled over in Brunswick County in 2014 on unrelated drug and gun charges.

“The case is a circumstantial evidence case. The circumstances, in this case, proves without a reasonable doubt that the defendant killed Sheldon Pawl,” Maultsby told the jury. 

Maultsby talked about how Prawl and his mother Beverly Daley spoke every other day and on October 31, 2013, she received a text message from Prawl’s phone saying “Travel, talk to you soon.” Davis said in her testimony that she gave it a few days before she contacted Cherri Davis, Prawl’s girlfriend on November 2, begging her to make a report to the police about her son missing. 

In the state’s closing argument, Maultsby told the jury that “Carleton Davis had a motive to end the life of Sheldon Prawl because he did not like what he did to his sister.” It took the state 58 minutes to argue their closing to the jury and the defense will argue their closing at 1:30 PM Wednesday afternoon.
