Two Fort St. John property tax review public meetings are scheduled for today, at the Quality Inn Northern Grand Hotel.As reported last week, Property Tax Ratio Review Commissioner Doctor Stanley Hamilton is conducting the independant review. It’s stated purpose is to determine if the way the city divides total property taxes among seven property classes should be adjusted. City Manager Diane Hunter says, one of the key issues is the business community still feels it is paying a higher precentage of the tax pie than it should… However, she says province-wide survey numbers suggest they’re better off in this city, than businesses in the majority of other BC communities….

Convincing Napoli to sell Higuaín, however, would be a stumbling block, while any move would likely depend on whether Liverpool can shift Balotelli in January. The Italian’s poor form means potential suitors are going to be few and far between, but if the Reds convince a team to take a punt on Balotelli; Liverpool would be wise to pursue their reported interest in Higuaín. What stands Higuaín in good stead is his prolificacy compared to Liverpool’s strikers. Only Sturridge (4.3) and Balotelli (3.9) are averaging more shots per league game this season than Higuaín (2.9) of all Reds players. Higuaín, though, can justify his frequent attempts to net as his goal return suggests. With the creative personnel available to Rodgers – Sterling, Coutinho and Jordan Henderson among them – Napoli’s Argentina international would thrive at Anfield. WhoScored.com give us the lowdown on a Liverpool target who could finally end their goalscoring woes. Check out lots more Reds stats at WhoScored.com.Liverpool’s recent utilisation of a 3-4-3 formation has certainly worked wonders for the Reds. Brendan Rodgers’ side are unbeaten in their last 5 Premier League games, winning 3, and after a turbulent start to the season, they have begun to find some form in a new system. While the front three may not be scoring as freely as Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge were last term, the attacking trio of Philippe Coutinho, Raheem Sterling and, prior to injury, Adam Lallana have impressed in recent weeks. Higuaín is widely regarded as one of the finest finishers in football and would certainly improve Liverpool’s attack. Only Carlos Tévez (11) and Mauro Icardi (10) have scored more goals in Serie A this season than Higuaín (9). Comparatively, Steven Gerrard (5) is Liverpool’s top goalscorer in the Premier League this campaign, 3 of which were from the penalty spot. Meanwhile, Liverpool’s 4 designated strikers – Balotelli, Sturridge, Rickie Lambert and Fabio Borini – have scored just 2 league goals between them this term. Mario Balotelli’s arrival in the summer was supposed to ease Suarez’s departure for Barcelona, though the acquisition of the Italian has been something of a disaster. Sturridge’s injury piled the pressure on Balotelli to succeed straight away, but he has not lived up to expectations at Anfield. Having failed to hit the ground running, Liverpool have been linked with a potential move for Napoli’s £30million-rated Gonzalo Higuaín. The Argentine boasts a statistically calculated WhoScored.com strength of ‘finishing’ and his goal-getting ability would suit Rodgers’ gameplan. Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain 1 The Liverpool attack is as effective as it has been all season, but lacks an out and out goalscorer to spearhead the offensive line. Once Sturridge returns from injury, he is expected to start in the centre of the front three, but lacks the necessary match fitness to repeat last season’s exploits. Lambert and Borini have underwhelmed – their respective WhoScored.com ratings of 6.29 and 6.15 are among the worst of every Liverpool player – while Balotelli has shown no signs that his woes in front of goal will ease any time soon. The 27-year-old is, more often than not, deployed in the lone striker role for Napoli, so would be familiar with the requirements of leading the attack in Liverpool’s recently favoured 3-4-3 formation. If the Reds can strike a deal to bring him to Anfield, and the Argentine was to quickly find his feet in England, Higuaín could well be the signing of the January transfer window.For more stats on reported Liverpool target Gonzalo Higuaín, click here to view his WhoScored.com player page

The city offered a $75,000 reward for information in the case. Investigators believe as many as 100 people witnessed the shooting. Police were seeking three suspects Monday in a shooting on a crowded street that left a 3-week-old baby dead from a stray bullet, authorities said. Luis Angel Garcia, 23 days old, was sitting in a stroller next to his mother when he was shot around 9:30 p.m. Saturday in MacArthur Park, coroner’s spokesman Craig Harvey said. The El Monte infant died about a half-hour later at California Hospital Medical Center. Another victim, identified as Francisco Clemente, 37, also was hit by a stray bullet, said police spokeswoman Sara Faden. He was in critical condition at a local hospital. “The cold-blooded murder of a tiny, defenseless newborn baby is a crime that we just can’t tolerate and won’t tolerate in the city of Los Angeles,” Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa told reporters at a news conference. “Anyone who is willing to gun down a man in cold blood in the middle of a busy, working-class neighborhood within inches of a newborn baby is a threat to everyone, everywhere.”
Sunderland’s Stadium of Light and West Brom’s Hawthorns saw the most excitement in another afternoon of Premier League football.Yannick Bolasie helped Crystal Palace to a 4-1 win over the Black Cats, scoring a ten-minute hat-trick to add to Sunderland’s miserable season. Glenn Murray scored the other, while Connor Wickham struck a consolation goal for the Black Cats.In the Midlands, Leicester stunned West Brom, who wore their 1968 FA Cup final replica shirts to honour former striker Jeff Astle, who died aged 59 in 2002. However, Jamie Vardy rescued three points in the dying moments as the Foxes came from behind to win.Darren Fletcher gave the Baggies the perfect start and Craig Gardner restored the lead after David Nugent’s leveller. Then Robert Huth pulled one back and Vardy sent the visitors wild at the end to clinch a 3-2 win. Leicester stay bottom but are now three points from safety.At St Mary’s, James Ward-Prowse, on at half-time, stepped up and put Southampton ahead from the penalty spot and then striker Graziano Pelle scored his first league goal since December in a 2-0 win against Hull.It was a happy return to White Hart Lane for Tim Sherwood as Aston Villa picked up a vital three points in a 1-0 win to move clear of the drop zone.Tottenham started well, but could not find a way through and so it was Villa who went ahead against the run of play. In-form Christian Benteke headed in the only goal of the game and just before half-time Gabriel Agbonlahor’s shot from 18 yards cannoned off the post.Villa could have been out of sight when Fabian Delph was through on goal, but Vorm denied the midfielder.Stoke pushed West Ham all the way at Upton Park and were rewarded when Marko Arnautovic equalised in the final minute of the game to earn a 1-1 draw.The Hammers started brightly and were ahead after ten minutes when Aaron Cresswell’s free-kick flew into the top corner giving Asmir Begovic no chance.
