Teams for Courtney Walsh Award? – CHASE chairman urges consideration for units that fit selection criteria

first_imgChairman of the Courtney Walsh Award selection committee, Brian George, suggested that as the prestigious Award evolves, teams could be considered as possible candidates for selection. George pointed to the Sunshine Girls as an example of a team that truly epitomised the values and character of the Courtney Walsh Award, which is hosted by the Culture, Health, Arts, Sports and Education (CHASE) Fund. “As we talk about the harmonious development and contribution to country, and we consider the values of what the Courtney Walsh award stands for, teams such as the Sunshine Girls come to mind … . They are examples that truly epitomise the values and character of what the Courtney Walsh Award represents. I hope the committee will consider this going forward,” said George. He added that sports should represent fair play and respect for others. “Sports is more than just about winning and achieving great results on the field, but should represent fair play, respect for others and respect for the rules and harmonious development and contribution to a country,” the selection committee chairman pointed out at the 11th annual opening of nominations for the Courtney Walsh Award for Excellence. The launch took place at Cuddy’z Sports Bar and Restaurant in New Kingston last Thursday. In appealing to the wider community to send in nominations, George urged them not to always look for the obvious choice or be seduced into thinking that it is a popularity award, but rather to select someone in the sporting field who genuinely represents the characters of sportsmanship set out in the criteria for selection. Minister with responsibility for sport, Natalie Neita-Headley, said she noted with pride that apart from the resilience and excellence being displayed among our athletes, there was also the growing trend of humility, which was one of the main criteria for selection in the Courtney Walsh Award for Excellence. “It’s not about the beating of the chest, but being grateful to God, to their coaches and managers for guiding them this far,” noted Neita-Headley. She also expressed her gratitude to CHASE for partnering in the process of celebrating excellence in sports. outstanding achievement The criteria for selection stipulate that the awardee must be Jamaican and possess qualities that include a history of outstanding achievement in their chosen sport, with notable achievements in the calendar year preceding the award; a spirit of sportsmanship and goodwill; appropriate leadership skills; appropriate deportment, a high level of discipline and integrity, both inside and outside of the sports arena and humility even in the face of victory. The winner of the award will receive $500,000 and an exquisitely designed crystal trophy. Male and female athletes at the secondary level will again be recognised with an award at this year’s ceremony for both academic and sporting achievements. The first awards were presented in 2013. Winners will be presented with a cash award of $250,000 and trophies. Nominations for the award close on September 18, with the award ceremony taking place on October 15 at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel. The selection committee includes Mike Fennell, president, Jamaica Olympic Association (JOA); Horace G. Helps, senior journalist; Compton Rodney, JOA; Don Anderson, chairman, Institute of Sports; Dr Walton Small, president, ISSA; Donovan Bennett, secretary, Jamaica Cricket Association; and representing CHASE, Saleem Lazarus, Dr Winston Dawes and Fae Ellington.last_img read more

The footage also showed the suspect entering the home from the northern door and exiting via the back entrance, with two bulky bags and a bucket in his hands.According to information, the duo who lived in the upper flat of the property was last seen by the tenant on July 7, 2018.The 40-year-old woman told the Police that she recalled hearing footsteps about 21:00h on Saturday evening.

It’s a lost weekend for Ice Dogs

first_img“The four power-play goals were a big factor,” Adduono said. “It’s tough to blame anyone on the PK. We just aren’t quick enough … and the goalie has to be your best PK guy.” Dave Borrelli scored the Falcons’ third power-play goal at 15:12 of the second to give Fresno its first lead. But the Ice Dogs’ Brad Bonello answered less than two minutes later. Then in the final minute of the second, Fresno’s Matt O’Dette scored his second goal of the game, a stoppable slap shot from the point that goalie Mike Brown allowed to slip through his pads. Ten seconds later, Adduono pulled Brown, who allowed five goals on 22 shots, in favor of Brett Jaeger, who stopped nine of 11. “That one can’t go in. That’s a back-breaker. (Soft goals) have killed us all year,” Adduono said. Luke Curtin netted his second power-play goal of the game at 5:40 of the third period, giving Fresno a 6-4 lead. The Ice Dogs’ Brandon Schwartz scored with 11:58 remaining, but 1:55 later, Fresno’s Brett Hammond netted the game’s final goal. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The reverse side of that is the games mean nothing if you don’t make them count. The Ice Dogs got to use one game in hand Sunday evening in their attempt to rally past Utah and Victoria and into the ECHL Kelly Cup playoffs. Unfortunately for them, it didn’t count as they fell to the Fresno Falcons, 7-5, before a Long Beach Arena crowd of 3,013. The loss capped a lost weekend for the Ice Dogs, who played very well at times but dropped all three games. center_img The Ice Dogs (19-30-3) still have four games in hand against Victoria, which holds the eighth and final playoff spot in the National Conference and has an eight-point cushion, and two against Utah, which remains two points ahead. “We are blessed with games in hand,” coach Rick Adduono said. “But we’ve had four chances at home like this to make up some ground and step to the forefront, but there is always some factor that kills us.” The factor Sunday was goaltending, at least in Adduono’s mind. “I thought our forwards played pretty well, generated chances and scored enough for us to win the game,” Adduono said. “You can’t give up seven goals.” The Ice Dogs had their highest-scoring first period of the season, with Andrew Winnik, Ash Goldie and Terry Harrison doing it against Falcons goalie Scott Stirling in the first 9:24. However, they also gave up three goals, including two of Fresno’s four goals on six power-play chances. last_img read more

We may not be golden generation but we are united: Kane

first_imgBoth Rio Ferdinand and Steven Gerrard claimed the reason they and the others who made up the so-called ‘golden generation’ fell short at successive finals was they could not shake off their different club rivalries when they joined up with their England team-mates.Kane, though, told the English daily newspapers this is not the case with the present group under Gareth Southgate — as many of them have played with each other at Under-21 level.“It’s not something we’ve had to deal with really — we all get on very well and have come through the ranks together,” said Kane.“We definitely don’t have that divide in the team any more.– ‘Lot of attacking flair’ –England manager Gareth Southgate careful not to heighten expectations © AFP / Paul ELLISKane also took issue with Ferdinand who told The Times last month his priority had been winning trophies with Manchester United.“It’s the one competition that everybody dreams of winning. That’s No 1.“I’d be surprised if the majority of players did not say the World Cup is the biggest sporting event in the world.“I’d love to win everything with Tottenham, but for me personally the World Cup outweighs them all.”Kane, who says his mum cried when he was handed the captaincy by Southgate, does not expect a repeat of the woeful Euro 2016 campaign which saw them beaten by minnows Iceland in the last 16 and cost then manager Roy Hodgson his job.“I’m confident it won’t happen (again) — I won’t say 100 per cent because you never know in football — but in this team we wear our heart on our sleeve.“We’re proud to be here, we will work hard, be energetic. First and foremost we will run around and do that aspect of the game. We have a lot of attacking flair that can do some damage.”Southgate, who experienced the pitfalls of international football when he missed a penalty in the shootout loss to old foes Germany in the Euro ’96 semi-finals hosted in England, did not wish to heighten expectations which has so often been a crushing burden for the national side.“We hope we can send people to work the following day having enjoyed our matches, I know what those tournament experiences can be like and we desperately want to bring that,” said Southgate, whose side have warmed up with wins over fellow finalists Nigeria and Costa Rica.“We know we are not the finished article, in fact we’re a long way from, but I think people see signs of progress and enjoy watching us and the manner in which we try to play.”Kane and England open their World Cup campaign against Tunisia in Volgograd next Monday, followed by dates with Panama and Belgium.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Captain Harry Kane says England approach the World Cup as a tight knit unit, devoid of the divisions that have hindered past World Cup campaigns © AFP / Paul ELLISLONDON, United Kingdom, Jun 12 – Captain Harry Kane says England’s bid to end their World Cup drought stretching back over half a century will not be undone by a divided squad.The 24-year-old striker said there were no cliques within the squad that flies out to Russia later on Tuesday seeking to emulate their 1966 predecessors in lifting the trophy.last_img read more

Kindergarten is focus of PVP election

first_imgSCHOOLS: Candidates for the district’s board are divided over expanding extended-day program. By Paul Clinton STAFF WRITER Two sitting board members on the Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified School District are trying to thwart each other’s ambitions by supporting a pair of challengers in the Nov. 6 election. “When you start a program and you offer it at some schools, you have to think through that you’ll have to provide it at all schools,” said Vanden Bos. “But you have to have a stable funding source.” Candidates in the rather quiet race have also sparred over management of the district’s $77million construction and modernization plan. Tomblin has said the district is $10 million short of the amount needed to finish all 55 projects approved by voters in Measures R and S, which passed in 2005. Vanden Bos and de la Rosa discount that number, calling it guesswork, but concede the district needs to update project costs that are more than two years old. The district’s projects have been well managed, de la Rosa said. “Of the projects we have undertaken thus far, we are on time and on budget,” de la Rosa said. “All we have done so far is approve the next set of priorities. It’s our job to continue to evaluate and re-evaluate.” In the summer, the board will begin receiving an additional $600,000 from Measure P, a parcel tax renewed by voters June 5. The candidates say they’re also looking to improve curriculum and course offerings in one of the state’s highest achieving districts. Tomblin supports additional counselors and more vocational education. “All of our students do excellent, but vocational training is an area for a wide segment of our students that I hope we can expand on,” he said. Here are a few more biographical details on the candidates contending for two seats: Incumbent Dora de la Rosa, 45, lives in Rancho Palos Verdes. She won a seat on the the board in 2003, after successfully leading the campaigns for two ballot measures. Paul Neights, 43, lives in Rancho Palos Verdes. He’s the chief technology officer of Del-Jen Inc., a publicly traded company that specializes in education and career placement. Incumbent David Tomblin, 55, lives in Rancho Palos Verdes. He’s the president and chief executive of the Tomblin Asset Management Group Inc. in Torrance. He won election in 2003. As a board member, he helped start an after-school program at Palos Verdes High School, known as the Palos Verdes Institute of Technology. Larry Vanden Bos, 48, lives in Rolling Hills Estates. The entrepreneur and business executive is a vice president of Vernon-based Rose & Shore, a food processing business. His wife is Debby Stegura, the former co-president of the Peninsula Education Foundation. He graduated from Rolling Hills High in 1977. paul.clinton@dailybreeze.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Tomblin and Paul Neights, a technology executive, both say the district should immediately expand an extended-day kindergarten program now offered at four of the district’s 10 elementary schools. Neights believes the board hasn’t moved fast enough to implement a 20-to-1 class limit – a move that would require the district to hire additional teachers and perhaps add classroom space – across the board. “One of the frustrations we’ve had is everybody said kindergarten was a no-brainer,” said A.J. Poulin, who spoke for the unavailable candidate. “They weren’t doing anything to implement it.” On other other side, de la Rosa and Larry Vanden Bos, a member of the district’s bond oversight committee and Rolling Hills Estates planning commissioner, say a more cautious approach should be followed. They support the expansion once the district completes a curriculum review and proper resources are identified. last_img read more

The outfit ‘Trashparency’ made by Breenagh Golden, Shannon Collins and Chloe Lafferty ‘White Lightning’ made by Louise Brogan and Megan Barnett and ‘Osiris’ made by Diarmuid Drumm, Nicole Kelly and Coral Morning all made it through to the Grand Final.The outfits ‘Atlantic Queen’ made by Rebecca Quinn, Nicole Kavanagh and Shannon laird ‘Nailed It’ by Shannon McNamee, Rachel and Jessica Wood and lastly ‘Splish, Splash, Splosh’ by Courtney Downey, Louise Brogan and Rachel O’Donnell narrowly missed out on the shortlist.Louise Brogan from ‘White Lightning’ explained that their dress was made from shredded paper rolled into small quills, recycled crisp bags and broken CD’s. When her team began to make the dress they decided early on that they wanted to make a glamorous dress and they would take their time with it. They started in late October and finished earlier this year.She spoke about how long it took to curl up the paper using a quilling tool and each individual crisp bag had to be rolled up and cut into eight squares to make up the bottom of the dress. Louise said she and her team are really looking forward to the Grand Final. We would like to take this opportunity to wish all the teams good luck in the Grand Final which will be staged in the 3 Arena in Dublin on the 14th of April.DEELE COLLEGE STUDENTS SHOW ‘THRASHPARENCY’ FOR JUNK KOUTURE EVENT was last modified: March 10th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare 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:deele collegeEntertainmentFeaturesJunk Kouturenewslast_img read more
