National Champs and those late decisions

first_img WATCHDOG Having said all that, the JAAA is always under this columnist’s searchlight, their efforts in promoting the sport and the welfare of its participants is always of high priority in this corner. This columnist has in the past been a ‘watchdog’, trying to keep the local governing body honest in its very important role. Although that oversight self-assignment has been disputed by previous administrations, as to its relevance, it is one that will not be arrested. Track and field, and its fortunes, are far too important to our people to allow a committed journalist that luxury. The fans yearn for it, utilise it to formulate their own thinking, and make their informed comments, either on popular social media or elsewhere. Without all this, it appears to be a widely held view that our athletes would not receive the attention and focus from administrators that their performances merit. This leads this columnist to the choice of team leader for the Pan American Junior Track & Field Championships, Edmonton, Canada, July 31 to August 2. The effort, energy and enthusiasm of long-time administrator Julette Parkes, the official chosen, has come under the scrutiny of Foster’s Fairplay since 1998. It was during her similar posting at the World Junior Championships in Annecy, France, that year, that the quoted assessment of the senior insurance executive was made. It came in the midst of a dire need for someone who could take our young athletes through the challenges of change of environment and different food choices, to compete against the best of the world. These were live issues to be addressed. “Happily, they found Julette Parkes, who has worked like a Trojan to keep these athletes properly nourished … she has worked assiduously with this team from the inception …. always with a smile, which belied the mammoth proportions of the duties which she undertook … the super efficient Parkes carried the burden of taking care of just about everything for her charges … the athletes were her babies, she mothered them, she fathered them, she saw to their every concern … the job was well done and one is left to ponder how could it have been achieved, if Julette Parkes was not called and so stoutly responded … take care of business.” Seventeen years later, from what is still being noticed on the local circuit, that assessment still holds. Go and do likewise, Miss. – For feedback: E-mail lauriefoster2012@gmail.com The Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association (JAAA) National Championships had its gloss removed on the last weekend in June, when arguably the two most anticipated events were shorn of a top-ranker expected to compete. The world’s fastest, Usain Bolt, duly registered, despite free entry to the Beijing World Championships, withdrew, a move to be repeated later by his scratching Diamond League dates in Paris and Lausanne. A pelvic area injury was cited, but only then. As fans were settling into a Boltless four days, spirits were further dampened by a heatedly debated announcement. It revealed that the new speedball, Elaine Thompson – with a 10.84 100m season’s best – would go to the blocks only in the 200m. As it turned out, it is difficult to accept that these last-minute decisions had no bearing on the less-than-anticipated patron support. 20/20 VISION Foster’s Fairplay will await the final of the women’s 200m event in Beijing, as any negative assessment as to the mindset of Thompson’s coach, the supremely gifted technocrat, Stephen Francis, could just explode. Call it 20/20 vision coming from this columnist, but the MVP Track Club boss has a rich history. He has already demonstrated that he can produce performances from athletes under his care that defy the thinking of ordinary mortals. The meet, which dualled as the Beijing World Championships Trials, had its spectator thrills, but was diluted somewhat by this columnist being denied access by the organisers. This episode will have its treatment on a separate forum. Various national teams, at both senior and junior levels, have been selected and have just completed or soon to embark on competition. The pursuit of the almost-mandated medals would have been on. Foster’s Fairplay wishes them all well.last_img read more

Stephens eyes 2nd Slam title, Halep 1st in French Open final

first_imgLacson: Calamity fund cut; where did P4 billion go? Sloane Stephens of the U.S. clenches her fist after defeating compatriot Madison Keys during in semifinal match of the French Open tennis tournament at the Roland Garros stadium, Thursday, June 7, 2018 in Paris. (AP Photo/Michel Euler)PARIS — When the French Open final was played a year ago, Sloane Stephens was nowhere near Roland Garros. She was in Chicago with coach Kamau Murray, working her way back from a foot injury that required surgery and sidelined her for 11 months.“Indoors on a hard court. Getting ready for grass. Barely walking. Playing tennis next to a bunch of 5- and 6-year-old screaming kids,” Murray recalled. “So to be here from there, I think, is rewarding, because those times were not easy.”ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES It was 5-0 by the time Muguruza eventually claimed a game.Muguruza’s last stand came at 4-all in the second set, a 13-minute game in which she held three break points. But she failed to convert any of those, and Halep held there, before breaking at love to end it.While the Romanian sometimes has trouble with so much on the line, Stephens has been perfect in title matches on the WTA tour, going 6-0.“I mean, there is no formula. I didn’t, like, try to do it. I’m not trying to break a record. It’s just how it’s happened for me,” Stephens said, “I think once I get going in a tournament, I’m pretty consistent, which is good. I just try to keep that going.”She had never made it past the fourth round on the red clay of Paris until now. This year, she was two points from defeat in the third round against Camila Giorgi of Italy before turning that match around.Stephens hasn’t dropped a set since.“When you make it out of that,” Murray said, “you build a little bit of confidence.”Like Halep, Stephens is an incredibly talented defensive player, and she kept stretching points Thursday until Keys would err.In all, Keys made 41 unforced errors, 30 more than Stephens.“It’s really tough to get any ball by her, but especially today, she was neutralizing so well. And she was hitting so many deep, heavy balls, that I really felt like I was having to go for a lot,” said Keys, who is now 0-3 against Stephens.

She also was coming off a lopsided victory in the quarterfinals a day earlier, overwhelming Sharapova 6-2, 6-1.But it took Muguruza quite a while to get going against Halep, who managed to keep sending ball after ball back over the net.Backed by fans who loudly chanted her first name between games, Halep went ahead 3-0 with the help of only one winner. Of her first 14 points, 13 arrived via errors by Muguruza — nine unforced, four forced.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding The times are good now.

Just one of those days where I think she played incredibly well.”There was a stretch after winning the U.S. Open that Stephens did not manage to do that.Ever.She endured an eight-match losing streak after leaving New York, going 0-6 for the rest of 2017 and then 0-2 to begin 2018, including a first-round loss at the Australian Open.“Life came at me fast after the U.S. Open,” said Stephens, whose late father, John, was the 1988 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year with the New England Patriots.She regrouped and got headed back in the right direction.

Bandits torch NIS WBD safe, cart off $6M

first_img− several questionedSeveral persons attached to the National Insurance Scheme (NIS) branch at Pouderoyen, West Bank Demerara (WBD), were taken into Police custody for questioning on Thursday, following a $6 million robbery in the wee hours of the morning.The robbery occurred sometime around 02:30h and the ordeal lasted for almost anBandits hit NIS Pouderoyen Officehour.According to reports reaching Guyana Times, six armed men entered the compound by cutting the chain-link fence in the rear, after which they attacked the two security guards on duty. The female and male guards were then bound and a service weapon, along with six rounds of ammunition was taken away from the male guard.The perpetrators also disconnected the alarm system, as well as the telephone lines before forcing their way into the building by kicking down the door. While inside, the men torched the safe and bagged the money before making good their escape.This newspaper understands that the Police in D Division (West Demerara-East Bank Essequibo) are now working on the theory that it might have been an inside job, stating that someone from the inside might have divulged information to the perpetrators, since the money was only placed there the day before.Guyana Times was told that the NIS Office is currently collecting payments from self-employed persons.Meanwhile, among those taken into custody for questioning were the male security guard and three other employees attached to the NIS Pouderoyen Office. Divisional Commander, Assistant Commissioner of Police Leslie James, told this newspaper that investigators have questioned nine employees in connection with the robbery.When this publication visited the scene, the office was closed for the day; however, many of the staffers remained in the building and were seen turning away pensioners who turned up to collect their monies.On the other hand, while none of the neighbours knew of the robbery until daybreak, one woman recalled hearing screams during the morning hours, but thought it was a domestic violence disturbance.“I woke up because I heard a screaming so I thought some man beating up his wife on the road. This person hollering and screaming and then all of a sudden it stopped, so I fall back to sleep. I did not get up, but then this morning my son told me that NIS was robbed and then I realised that it was the guard who was screaming,” the woman related. She noted for the past 13 years she has been living there, this is the first time such an incident has occurred.Meanwhile, investigations into the $6 million robbery are ongoing.last_img read more

GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO END SPECULATION ON STUDENT GRANTS FOR FARMERS AND SELF-EMPLOYED – TD

first_imgFianna Fáil Spokesperson on Education and Skills, Charlie McConalogue TD, has called on the Education Minister to end the speculation surrounding his plans to proceed with changes to the third level grant systems for farmers and self employed workers.Minister Ruairí Quinn previously confirmed that plans to include capital assets in the means-testing for third level grants are at an advanced stage.Deputy McConalogue commented: “Minister Quinn confirmed in May there are plans to include capital assets in means testing for third level grants. Since then we have heard nothing and the Minister’s silence on this is deafening.  As the number of opposition voices to these plans grows, including many on the Government backbenches, Minister Quinn’s refusal to comment is leading self employed and farming families to the logical conclusion that he has determined to go down this road. “He needs to immediately clarify what his intentions are, the college year is due to get underway very soon and students deserve to have the reassurance that they will not end up losing the grant. If the Minister’s mooted plans were to be implemented, many students from farming and self employed backgrounds, would have to review whether they could afford to complete their third level education.“It is a retrograde step to include capital assets in any means testing for these grants. The true test of whether someone is eligible for a grant has to be their income, not the notional value of assets. If Minister Quinn proceeds with this policy, it would discriminate against farming families and self employed workers on low incomes who are dependent on state support to send their children to college.“There are many families who have land or a business that are earning very little in the current climate, and their low income means they are struggling financially.“There is no doubt that this policy will put third level education out of the reach of many younger people from self-employed and farming backgrounds. The long-term economic and social effects of this are considerable. The Minister needs to move to end the speculation on the Governments position on this as families have to prepare for the upcoming academic year.” GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO END SPECULATION ON STUDENT GRANTS FOR FARMERS AND SELF-EMPLOYED – TD was last modified: August 9th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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

DANIEL IN TEARS AS HE SAYS FINAL FAREWELL TO HIS BELOVED MOTHER JULIA

first_imgSINGER Daniel O’Donnell choked back tears today as the people of Kincasslagh came out in their hundreds to say a sad farewell to his mother Julia.Hundreds of mourners turned up for the funeral of the gentle 94 year old who lived for her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.The coastal church of St Mary’s in Kincasslagh was packed to capacity an hour before the funeral mass was due to begin. The church nestles on a small hill overlooking the sea with Owey Island in the distance where Julia and her late husband moved from to the mainland to marry and have children.Daniel O’Donnell’s wife Majella comforts him at his mother Julia’s funeral today. Picture by Joe Boland.No less than eleven priests concelebrated the funeral mass.They included Fr Brian Darcy, Fr John Joe Duffy and chief celebrant Fr Brian Logue who was present at Julia’s husband Francie’s funeral almost 50 years ago.Julia’s remains were brought into the church by her sons and daughters James, John Bosco, Daniel, Margaret and Kathleen. Daniel’s wife Majella and a large following of family followed close behind.A large wreath of white roses and lilies sat on top of Julia’s coffin.Parish priest Fr Pat Ward said his mother always asked him after funerals how many priests were at the mass.He said his mother would have been proud of how many priests turned up to concelebrate Julia’s funeral mass.Fr Logue, a local priest, returned from Scotland to conduct the service at the request of Julia. Julia’s remains are brought to the church today with her native Owey island in the background. Picture by Joe Boland.He said Julia was simply a wonderful mother who had many talents including knitting and composing songs.“The children were also blessed, as I would know, with a wonderful father Francie. I have no doubt now that he and Julia are together again in the Kingdom of God.“She was a gifted and talented person. She was very well known for her knitting, she knitted for the Pope, she knitted for the Queen and she received ‘thank you’ letters from both of them.”To laughter from the congregation, he joked: “I cannot count the number of clerical black socks she knitted for me. “She was also a composer of songs. When Daniel was nine years old he was at our home in Kincasslagh he offered to sing a song for us and it was called ‘there’s a shop at the corner called Logues’. My father’s shop.“It was the first ever recorded song by Daniel. We still have the tape, the very first recording. And the studio it was composed was Logue’s kitchen.”He looked at Julia’s coffin and said “Now Julia, I’m going to bid you farewell.“Whenever I reach the golden gates, I hope, I hope you will be there to welcome me with a new pair of socks…and a song. One day I will meet you and we will sing together again.”The funeral hymns, in both Irish and English, were sung by Daniel’s close friend Mary Duff.Julia’s grand children and great-grandchildren read the prayers of the faithful.Among the prayers was a request to pray of the staff of Dungloe Community Hospital where Julia was so lovingly cared for in her final days before she passed away in the early hours of Sunday morning.Among those in the packed congregation was hotelier and Donegal GAA All-Ireland winning manager Brian McEniff and Daniel’s official biographer Eddie Rowley.Throughout the mass Daniel managed to remain composed but broke down in tears as his mother’s coffin was led from the church.Outside the heavens had opened into a gentle drizzle as Julia was led to her final resting place at nearby Belcruit Cemetery alongside her husband Francie.With her island birthplace in the distance through the mist and rain, Julia O’Donnell’s long journey had finally come to a peaceful end.DANIEL IN TEARS AS HE SAYS FINAL FAREWELL TO HIS BELOVED MOTHER JULIA was last modified: May 21st, 2014 by John2Share 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)Tags:daniel o’donnellfuneralJULIA O’DONNELLKINCASSLAGHlast_img read more
