Poker Star again

first_imgPOKER STAR confirmed his status as the country’s top sprinter at Caymanas Park yesterday with an emphatic victory in the annual renewal of the Eileen Cliggott Memorial Trophy over 1300 metres, the season’s first grade one trophy race.Installed a 4-5 favourite with four-time champion Omar Walker riding him for the first time, the classy 4-y-o colt from the stables of 15-champion trainer Wayne DaCosta won by 1 3/4 lengths from PHINEAS (7-2) under former champion Wesley Henry with old rival CAMPESINO (Paul Francis up) in third.Breaking smartly from the number-one post position, POKER STAR led briefly before giving way to the highly fancied American-bred UPPA TUNE (2-1) under champion jockey Shane Ellis. He came back strongly to dispose of topweight UPPA TUNE and, on entering the straight, quickened impressively to win going away.Owned by Alexander Haber and bred by Y.S. (1955) Limited, POKER STAR a 4-y-o bay gelding by Liquidity out of Buyabook, was notching his fourth consecutive win and his third over this trip since May of last year. In between, he won the November 14 Caribbean Sprint Championship and more recently, the St Catherine Cup open allowance race over 1100 metres on January 2. DaCosta said POKER STAR did what was expected of him … and more.”He was ridden with some degree of patience, having to run from the number one post position, but there was a lot to like about the manner in which he found another gear when PHINEAS came on the scene a furlong out, and so long as he remains healthy, he won’t be beaten for now,” said DaCosta.last_img read more

Dr. Walter D. Richards Hailed as National Hero

first_imgThe Rev. Dr. Walter D. Richards, Sr. has been described by many as a national hero.At his funeral at the First Baptist Church in Clay Ashland last Saturday, attended by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, other dignitaries and hundreds of sympathizers, Sheikh Kafumba Konneh, Chairman of the National Muslim Council of Liberia (NMCL), said in the early 1990’s when Liberians were fleeing their country by hundreds of thousand, it was DR. Richards and his darling wife, Ora, who worked tirelessly to establish to establish the the Buduburam Refugee Camp near Accra, Ghana. The camp became the largest haven for Liberians who were in the desperation at the pinnacle of the Liberian civil war.According to Sheikh Kafumba, “Dr. Richards’ life was full of services to mankind. He was a champion of peace and his service to the inter- Religious Council was marked with integrity,” Sheikh Kafumba added.The Liberian Official Gazette, signed by President Sirleaf and Foreign Minister Augustine Ngafuan and read by Chief of Protocol Rufus Neufville, said Dr. Richards served the nation and his people with distinction.“With the untimely and shocking home-going of Rev. Richards,” Mr. Neufville said, the family has suffered the loss of a true and gracious loved one, his church an outstanding prelate and preacher of the Word, the Liberian people have lost a resilient advocate, tower of strength and support; his comrades and associates, a reliable companion and the Government of Liberia a dedicated public servant and committed patriot.” Chief of Protocol Neufville recalled that for Dr. Richards’ commitment and distinguished service to humanity the government of Liberia decorated him with the distinction of Knight Commander of the Humane Order of African Redemption.Many Baptists saw him as a ‘hero’ but Cambridge University Scholar, Dr. Paul Gifford, in his book,Christianity and Politics in Doe’s Liberia: 1980-1990 lauded Dr. Richards as Liberia’s preeminent Christian Leader of his time. The Ralph Bunch Award was conferred on Dr. Richards by Dr. Leon Sullivan, founder of Opportunities Industrialization Center International (OIC) in recognition of Dr. Richards’ outstanding service to the OIC, which Richards was responsible for establishing in Liberia. LOIC has trained thousands of Liberians in vocational and technical fields and the program is still ongoing today.It was under Rev. Richards’ pastoral leadership at the First Baptist Church in Clay Ashland, which lasted for approximately four decades that the new church edifice was built and dedicated in January 1975. Dr. Richards worked for numerous institutions. As an educator, following his graduation from the University of Liberia, he served as principal of the Student Union Institute, a night high school run by the Liberia National Student Union (LINSU). He later served as principal of Rick’s Institute, a premier Liberian high school run by the Liberian Baptist Missionary and Educational Convention (LBMEC). Dr. Richards once served as Deputy Minister of Education and former president of LBMEC. He was a founding member of the Liberia Council of Churches (LCC) and pastor for several decades of the Salem Baptist Church in Brewerville.Paying tribute on behalf of the University of Liberia (UL) was the vice president for academic affairs, Dr. Momolu Getaweh. He said Dr. Richards’ service as Chairman of the Board of Trustees during some of UL’s most difficult periods was marked with dedication and hard work and his impact on the institution would not be forgotten. “This man you see lying here helped to save my life when former president Charles Taylor was planning to kill me,” Dr. Getaweh recalled.Walter Dossen Richards was born on August 24, 1934. He died on May 29, 2015 at the age of 84.In additional to the many tributes paid by various institutions, the board chairman of LOIC, Joseph Dorbor, hailed Dr. Richards as chairman emeritus of LIOC who loved God and gave unselfish devotion to duty, the welfare of his fellowman, which exceeded his personal wellbeing,”Dr. Richards, said Dorbor, taught us how to train people, create jobs and change people’s lives from hopelessness to hope and accomplishment. Walter David Richards, Jr., son of the deceased paying the family tribute, said, “Dad we love you and your legacy will forever live on. You played your part and it is now left with the family to keep that legacy on-going. “We are proud of you because of the life you lived which is manifested through all the tributes being paid,” he said.Dr. Jeremiah W. Walker, former president of LBM & EC, who delivered the funeral discourse, said Dr. Richards lived a faithful life. He lived a very simple life, he advocated for the rights of all and he was a man of humanity.”Among the many attending the funeral was business man and politician Benoni Urey, as well as Sister Mary Laurene Browne, president of Stella Maris Polytechnic.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

MP accuses Govt of creating Berbice Bridge toll’s uproar

first_img…urges Minister to meet with shareholdersAs the controversy surrounding the rise in the Berbice River Bridge tolls continues, Opposition Member of Parliament (MP) Juan Edghill has now come forward stating that responsibility for this issue lies at the feet of the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) Government.Edghill, who is the shadow Public Infrastructure Minister in the National Assembly, said the issue is one that has been blown out of proportion, even though it could be simply resolved. He feels it was deliberately brought about to sway votes at the upcoming Local Government Elections.“This Government can be accused and rightfully so, of seeking to create an environment of instability and to agitate in the Berbice region, as a way of getting some particular outcome around the Local Government Elections period,” he claimed.Edghill further stated that the grandstanding taking place between Public Infrastructure Minister David Patterson and the Berbice Bridge Company IncOpposition MP Juan Edghill(BBCI) is what he described as a “manufactured controversy.”“This is a plot that is hatched, developed and executed by the APNU/AFC Government and they are using their people on social media to see if they can blame the [People’s Progressive Party] PPP for it. But the only thing about PPP in that bridge is the Private Public Partnership.”The Opposition MP also questioned, “Why with such a crisis the Government has not yet sat down with the BBCI and have negotiations? Are they waiting for problems like the teachers having to go on strike and then the President comes in and be the big Godfather?”However, the point was made again that the Minister is fully aware that in order for the tolls for the Berbice River Bridge to increase, he has to sign the toll order. “Why is he pussyfooting and creating concern in the minds of the Guyanese, particularly the Berbicians…praying on their emotions?”The MP is convinced that Government’s involvement in this situation is transparent, especially given the fact that the chair of the BBCI who also happens to be the head of the National Insurance Scheme (NIS), Dr Surendra Singh is a supporter of the AFC.“Had the People’s progressive Party (PPP) been in Government, I can assure that a solution to take care of the shareholders, to ensure the viability and maintenance of the bridge, ensure that the bridge continues to serve its purpose would have been solved,” he asserted.Edghill feels that the “political game” used to create this issue could be resolved if only, the Minister and Government meet with the BCCI. He said consideration should also be given to having the shares in the company could be purchased and a total buyout is possible.“Stop playing politics, get the BBCI into your boardroom where you could sit andThe Berbice River Bridgetalk and interest of all served and a proper decision can be made,” Edghill said referring to Minister Patterson.The increases were announced by BBCI Chairman, Dr Surendra Persaud, during a press conference recently. According to Persaud, they were formally informed by Public Infrastructure Minister David Patterson that Government would not agree to their previous requests for an increase.As per the increases, cars and minibuses will now be charged $8040; pickups, small trucks and four-wheel drive vehicles, $14,600; medium trucks, $27,720; large trucks, $49,600; art trucks, $116,680; freight, $1680 and boats passing through the river will be charged $401,040.Patterson had called a hasty press conference after the news of the increase broke. There, he had informed the press that all options to stop the increases, including legal, will be considered.Since the announcement, several key stakeholders have been calling for Government to buyout the private investors’ shares in the BBCI to bring a permanent resolution to the issue.last_img read more

The skinny on schools: Kids fitter while in class

first_imgHe said the study seems to point to the need for parents to be more involved, as well as to raise the idea of a longer school year and more after-school programs to keep children active. And schools should continue their efforts to promote good health, he said. “Trying to improve the quality of school lunches, getting the soda machines out of schools – those are still good approaches. But clearly the sources of children’s obesity problems lie outside of the school,” Downey said. For the study, Indiana University and Ohio State researchers studied the growth rates of the body-mass indexes of 5,380 kindergartners and first-graders. The data came from a National Center for Education Statistics survey that ran from fall 1998 to spring 2000 in 310 schools across the country. The university sociologists discovered that the youngsters’ BMIs increased on average more than twice as much during summer break, compared with the school year. That increase was even greater among black and Hispanic students and kids who were overweight at the start of kindergarten. INDIANAPOLIS – The nation’s schools – under fire for unhealthy school lunches, well-stocked vending machines and physical-education cuts – might actually do a better job than parents in keeping children fit and trim. A study found that 5- and 6-year-olds gained more weight over the summer than during the school year, casting doubt on the assumption that kids are more active during summer vacation. The findings don’t reveal what’s behind the out-of-school weight gain, but the researchers speculate it’s because the summer months lack the structure of the school year with all its activities and daily comings and goings. Doug Downey, an Ohio State University sociologist who co-authored the study, said that for many youngsters, the lazy days of summer might offer plenty of free time to eat snacks and lounge about watching TV or playing video games. Once kids were back in school, however, the monthly growth rate of their BMIs fell, and the growth rate gap between the overall population and the minority and overweight groups shrank, the researchers found. The study will appear in the April issue of the American Journal of Public Health. Betsy A. Keller, a professor of exercise and sport sciences at Ithaca College in New York, said the pattern seen in the study’s snapshot of the kids’ kindergarten year, summer break, and first grade is “irregular” and does not mesh with kids’ normal growth in height and weight. Keller said it clearly points to a summer gain in fat mass, although she said information from later school years is needed to see whether that trend continues. Overall, she said the findings point to the need for parents to become actively involved in encouraging their kids to develop healthy habits even as the push continues for schools to focus more on those same goals. “The big question in my mind is: What are the parents doing with these kids during the summer? Unless they’re paying attention to their child’s level of activity and diet, with each passing summer they’re just adding to the risk of them becoming overweight,” she said. “These are 5- and 6-year-olds, after all. So they’re not going to the grocery store – it’s their parents who are making these choices.” The study’s co-author, Brian Powell, a professor of sociology at Indiana University, said earlier studies have indicated that 5- and 6-year-olds with above-average BMI and BMI gains are at increased risk for adult obesity. Some 17 percent of U.S. youngsters already are obese, and millions more are overweight. Obese adults are at heightened risk of developing diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and other disorders. In recent years, criticism has been directed at schools for playing a role in that trend, leading nearly 20 states to enact some form of school nutrition legislation or to emphasize exercise goals. Nancy Chockley, president of the National Institute for Health Care Management Foundation, said the new research adds to the argument that parents must shoulder more of the responsibility for keeping their children in shape. Chockley said parents need to make time for regular family bike rides, walks, hikes or other types of exercise during the summer and beyond to help their kids develop good habits. “I don’t think this takes the heat off the schools. I think it spreads the heat around,” said Chockley, whose Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit group researches health care issues. “We ask a lot from the schools, but the fact is that’s the easiest environment to reach the most children. Reaching the parents is much harder.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!last_img read more

Pochettino ignores talk of Wembley hoodoo

first_img0Shares0000Tottenham Hotspur’s head coach Mauricio Pochettino awaits kick off ahead of the English Premier League football match against Swansea City at Wembley Stadium in London, on September 16, 2017 © AFP / Glyn KIRKLONDON, United Kingdom, Sep 17 – Mauricio Pochettino says he is not worried that Tottenham’s Wembley woes will derail their Premier League title bid.Tottenham have now failed to win any of their three league games at their new home following Saturday’s goalless draw with Swansea. That followed on from a 2-1 defeat to Chelsea before being held by Burnley.Their home record at White Hart Lane, which is undergoing a rebuilding programme, was the foundation for last season’s challenge as they pushed Chelsea all the way.It could prove a different story this time around but Pochettino, the Tottenham manager, said: “It’s frustrating and we need to do better.“Everyone needs to clinical. We need to make Wembley our home. But we need to move on from this talk of a hoodoo.“Last season at White Hart Lane was fantastic, but that’s now history. We are here. We can’t compare this season with other seasons.“Clubs are different and we are different. We have a new squad, a different dynamic which we need to create to win games not just at Wembley but away. I’m not worried.“Once we have been here for one season and then we can maybe can say it’s a problem.”Tottenham were looking to score for the 30th consecutive home game but found Swansea a tough nut to crack.Swansea are destined for a relegation fight so Paul Clement admitted the precious point will go a long way to sealing their top-flight status come next May.“We had to defend well and we did,” said manager Clement.“We were complacent in our last game against Newcastle and I was proud of the physical effort they put in and strong mentality.“They were waiting for a mistake so we had to stay focused. We want that to continue now. As a collective group we were very good.“You want to be difficult to break down and then get a counter attack or a set-play. I’m confident in this group that if they execute what they did in training then they can do well.”Clement admits there is also more to come from new Bayern Munich loan signing Renato Sanches, who played an hour in his second game for Swansea.“He did more good things than bad and he is making that adaptation,” added Clement.“Germany is not as intense as the Premier League. It will take him time to get up to speed and we know that. Sanches is rebuilding confidence after a turbulent year at Bayern.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Mortgage industry suffers more layoffs

first_imgBy Dan Seymour THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK – Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. and National City Corp. said Thursday more than 2,000 workers will be laid off as the financial institutions scale back their struggling mortgage businesses. The moves represent just the latest wave of layoffs in the mortgage industry, suffering from decaying credit quality, slipping home prices, and a drainage of demand among investors and banks for home loans. Two weeks after closing its BNC Mortgage LLC subsidiary, Lehman Brothers said it is winding down some of its U.S. and U.K. home lending businesses. The Wall Street brokerage is laying off 850 workers, closing its Korean mortgage business, and folding its businesses in the U.S., Japan and Europe into a single unit called Lehman Mortgage Capital. Scaling down the business will cost Lehman Brothers $20million after taxes, the company said. National City, based in Cleveland, said laying off 1,300 workers and scaling back its mortgage business will cost about $200 million before taxes. The bank is cutting back on issuing home loans it cannot sell to government-backed agencies such as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Demand by institutional investors for mortgage debt not guaranteed by a government-sponsored enterprise has rapidly dried up in the past six weeks. National City also will suspend issuing home equity loans through brokers. The home equity unit and mortgage unit will be combined into one subsidiary. Because there is so little demand among investors for home loans, National City said it may have to keep some of its mortgage debt instead of selling it. When a bank elects to keep a loan, it must record its market value on its books. National City said it likely will record a $30 million accounting charge to reflect the lower value of loans it now holds. Punk Ziegel analyst Richard X. Bove wrote in a client note that National City’s loan write-offs are just the first example of “kitchen sink” quarters, predicting many banks will write off a slew of different kinds of loans to push them off the books. “National City is the first,” he said. “There will by many others.” Shares of National City fell 66 cents, or 2.4 percent, to $26.67 Thursday. The shares have lost more than a quarter of their value this year. Lehman Brothers’ stock fell 52cents to $53.83 Thursday. The stock has lost nearly a third of its value this year. Lehman Brothers and National City join many of the country’s biggest mortgage lenders in laying off workers to shrink operations.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

THREE DECADES AND A FEW GREY HAIRS LATER FOR ST EUNANS ALL-IRELAND TEAM!

first_imgThe 1985 All-Ireland ST Eunans team.Most had heads of thick black or red hair.But 30 years later, most whose locks have greyed are thankful it’s even there.Indeed it’s a far cry form the streets of Letterkenny for the St Eunan’s College won the FAIS Senior Schools All-Ireland Soccer title. Members of the 1985 winning squad will reunite on Saturday to mark the milestone and relive the good old days again. Only two colleges (St Eunan’s and PCC Falcarragh) have ever won senior schools soccer titles in Donegal.A St Eunan’s team led by the likes of Colm McGonigle, Eunan McIntyre, Charlie Mulgrew and Pauric McDaid lifted the title in 1979 and three-years later Fr Michael Sweeney’s PCC side won the final in Belfield, Dublin. Johnny Kelly netted a hatrick for PCC in a side that included Sean Ferry, Eddie McGinley, John O’Brien, Hugh McFadden and Paul McGonagle.Thirteen years elapsed after the PCC win before St Eunan’s defeated Beneavin College 3-0 in the final at Finn Park. The manager of the St Eunan’s team was Mickey Houston, assisted by Eddie Harvey.The St Eunan’s team was: Andrew McGovern, Pascal Cullen, Tommy Ryan (captain), Kieran Mullen, Packie Dunnion, Peter McIntyre, Stephen McMenamin, Charlie Joe McGinley, Danny Doogan, Sean Reilly and Sean McBride. Subs; John Monaghan, Gerard McBride, Joe O’Boyle, Enda O’Donnell, Daithi Ramsey and Greg Cullen. The scorers in the final were Danny Doogan, Sean McBride and C.J.McGinley- ironically Peter McIntyre’s set pieces played a part in all three goals. The Beneavin side included the likes of ex-Dublin GAA stars Keith Barr and Charlie Redmond, Graham Kavanagh (Irish International-Schools) and the talented George Crampton.So, where are they now? Well the bunch didn’t do too badly for themselves when they left their former Alma Mater.Andrew McGovern is the Financial Controller at LYIT, Pascal Cullen is a teacher, Tommy Ryan is a businessman and Packie Dunnion is well known as the former joint proprietor of the Orchard Inn and property developer.Peter McIntrye (Peter Mac to those of us who know him well) is the joint owner with his wife Elizabeth of The Allingham Arms, Bundoran, Stephen McMenamin works for a private equity firm in New York while C.J is the deputy editor of the Donegal News.Danny Doogan runs a painting and decorating firm, Sean Reilly is a Pyschotherapist with the HSE while Sean McBride is a self employed wooden floor contractor. The 1985 team are being afforded a special welcome return to the college at 2.30pm for a meet and greet. They will play a light challenge match against a local select before retiring for a meal, presentation etc at the Mt Errigal Hotel around 6.30pm.After that, the plan is being kept a tightly guarded secret. But, don’t be surprised if you bump into a few old 1985 boys in local hostelries. Be kind and afford them a rant or two. After all, we’re all young at heart!.THREE DECADES AND A FEW GREY HAIRS LATER FOR ST EUNANS ALL-IRELAND TEAM! was last modified: April 23rd, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
