Pitch problems – ABCA president urges WICB to look into Sabina Park surface

first_img EIGHT-WICKET HAUL ST JOHN’S, Antigua, (CMC): Antigua and Barbuda Cricket Association president, Leon Rodney, has criticised the Sabina Park pitch and called on the West Indies Cricket Board to pay closer attention to the preparation of pitches for the ongoing Regional four-day championship. His calls come after Leeward Islands Hurricanes beat Jamaica Scorpions by 34 runs at the venue in a low-scoring affair that ended on the third day, despite the abandonment of the first day due to rain. Both teams were dismissed below 100 in their first innings, with Hurricanes managing 133 in their second innings, and Scorpions falling for 114 in pursuit of 149 for victory in the last innings of the day-night fixture. “If our first-class competition is going to operate like that, then the West Indies Cricket Board [has] to look into the preparation of the grounds, especially in Jamaica,” said Rodney, a former Leeward Islands coach. “There are just too many issues of that happening in Jamaica for us not to be concerned, and maybe the West Indies Cricket Board needs to give a special eye. “You can’t tell me that two first-class teams playing – one is out for 71, one is out for [56], one for 133 and one for [114] so there is not even 500 first-class runs in the match.” Bowlers thrived in the contest, with rookie seamer Jeremiah Louis finishing with an eight-wicket match haul and Test seamer Alzarri Joseph claiming five wickets in the second innings. All told, a mere 374 runs were scored across four innings, with only 12 double-figure scores registered, and a highest score of 47 by Test batsman Jermaine Blackwood in the Scorpions second innings. Rodney said based on Sabina’s recent history, there were obviously issues with the pitch which needed to be addressed. “When I was coaching Leeward Islands in 2010, as a matter of a fact, we had two games stopped in Jamaica and the pitch had to be reorganised,” he said. “And one was against Guyana, in Sabina, and then the England Test match that was stopped, so when I saw these figures, I was saying that something has to be wrong.” The second-round game at Sabina Park involving Windward Islands Volcanoes was also a low-scoring affair, but the second- and third-round games both saw totals of above 200 in every completed innings.last_img read more

Now is time for draft legislation, not green paper – Jagdeo

first_imgGreen paperThe Opposition has said Government’s Green Paper proves nothing unless they take the necessary steps to introduce draft legislation on the Sovereign Wealth Fund (SWF) which will guide how money from oil resources will be utilised for the country’s development.General Secretary of the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) and Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo said on Thursday that this is one of the reasons for the Opposition’s objection to the Green Paper, because the Opposition was expectingOpposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeodraft legislation instead.He said the time has passed for discussions on the model for the SWF, as the Government had adequate time to prepare for this sector for more than three years now.“Now to be confronted with a discussion paper takes us right back to 2015. And so they have failed to fulfil all of their promises of creating a framework for the SWF. So we are back to square one now… Now the Government wants to solicit views,” he stated.Another issues raised by Jagdeo is the model used in the Green Paper which ignores best practices around the world and dictates that there is minimal political involvement. Although Government has catered for an Opposition representative on the Fund, Jagdeo has already objected to this.He said, “If this continues and that will dictate what is in the legislation, we will oppose it because it will lead to numerous problems down the road and too many political involvement.”Jagdeo also added that the SWF would contain revenue from the forestry sector and the mining sector. “We thought this was independently transferred to the Budget…now they have a special legislation governing their holding of these funds outside of the Consolidated Fund”He was referring to monies drawn from two other sectors. “They don’t need separate legislation. This is minimal resources… We wondered why they wanted to include those resources too from forestry and mining combining them with the monies from the petroleum sector.”Jagdeo has also raised concerns over the total control of the Fund by the Finance Ministry. The Green Paper sets out preliminary plans on how the Government hopes to manage the revenue from oil and other natural resources, with clear objectives of the Natural Resources Fund.Jagdeo reminded that he had initial objections to Government’s plans for the Fund but now that the Green Paper has been made public, he finds the plans to be even more worrying.The document states that the Finance Ministry will be responsible for the overall management of the Fund, including requested withdrawals in the annual budget proposal.“…calculating the Fiscally Sustainable Amount; drafting the Investment Mandate; entering into the Operational Agreement with the Bank of Guyana and drafting the annual report and reporting on the Fund through the annual budget,” the document said.As such, Jagdeo said he disagrees with the Minister’s total control for various reasons, but zeroed in on Jordan’s silence on the signing bonus from ExxonMobil. “This is the same Minister who lied to the country about the US$18 million signing bonus, saying that Guyana never received it and never asked for it. He lied to Guyanese for over a year. And it is the same Minister who will now have full control.”Meanwhile, in the document, it sets out specific rules, including the Fiscal Rule, which caters for the development gaps, both in terms of human capital and physical infrastructure, that exist and the need to accommodate development spending via the National Budget.To oversee these decisions, the Government has recommended the establishment of a macroeconomic committee which would consist of five members, including a representative of the Finance Minister.In terms of the management of the fund, a sovereign investment committee would be responsible for advising the Minister on the investment mandate but would also include a representative.Further, the Green Paper states that the Bank of Guyana (BoG) will be the operational manager of the Fund. The Opposition Leader has already expressed deep concern about this proposal.Although the Government has catered for a representative from the Opposition to sit on the Fund, Jagdeo has already objected to this proposal, stating that politicians should not be included.Now that the Green Paper has been laid, it paves the way for the proposed legislation on the Sovereign Wealth Fund to be laid in the National Assembly which looks at addressing two main issues: stability of the economy and saving for future generations.last_img read more

Documents detail Army’s effort to contain Tillman information

first_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Within hours of Pat Tillman’s death, the Army went into information-lockdown mode, cutting off phone and Internet connections at a base in Afghanistan, posting guards on a wounded platoon mate, and ordering a sergeant to burn Tillman’s uniform. New Army investigative documents reviewed by The Associated Press describe how the military sealed off information about Tillman’s death from all but a small ring of soldiers. Officers quietly passed their suspicion of friendly fire up the chain to the highest ranks of the military, but the truth did not reach Tillman’s family for five weeks. The clampdown, and the misinformation issued by the military, lie at the heart of a burgeoning congressional investigation. “We want to find out how this happened,” said Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., chairman of the House oversight committee, which has scheduled a hearing for Tuesday. “Was it the result of incompetence, miscommunication or a deliberate strategy?” It is also a central issue as the Army weighs punishments against nine officers, including four generals, faulted in the latest Pentagon report on the case of the NFL star-turned-soldier. Gen. William Wallace, who oversees training for the Army, is to report on possible punishments. He told Acting Army Secretary Pete Geren this week that he was working as quickly as possible on recommendations, but could provide no timetable, Army spokesman Paul Boyce said. In the meantime, promotions and awards have been suspended for the seven officers still in the Army, Boyce said. It is well known by now that the circumstances of Tillman’s April 22, 2004, death were kept from his family and the American public; the Army maintained he was cut down by enemy bullets in an ambush, even though many soldiers knew he was mistakenly killed by his own comrades. The nearly 1,100 pages of documents released last month at the conclusion of the Army Criminal Investigation Command’s probe reveal the mechanics of how the Army contained the information. For example, the day after Tillman died, Spc. Jade Lane lay in a hospital bed in Afghanistan, recovering from gunshot wounds inflicted by the same fellow Rangers who had shot at Tillman. Amid his shock and grief, Lane noticed guards were posted on him. “I thought it was strange,” Lane recalled. Later, he said, he learned the reason for their presence: The news media were sniffing around, and Lane’s superiors “did not want anyone talking to us,” he said. Inside Forward Operating Base Salerno, near Khowst, Afghanistan, a soldier heard the dreaded call come across the radio: “KIAs.” There were two killed in action, one allied Afghan fighter and one Army Ranger, identified only by his code name. The soldier checked a roster and discovered the fallen American was Tillman. He rounded up four others and broke the news but withheld Tillman’s name. Had this soldier wanted to share the news outside the tactical operations center, it would have been difficult. “The phones and Internet had been cut off, to prevent anyone from talking about the incident,” he told investigators. Nearby on the same base, a staff sergeant was in his tent when a captain walked in and told him to burn Tillman’s bloody clothing. “He wanted me alone to burn what was in the bag to prevent security violations, leaks and rumors,” the staff sergeant testified. The superior “put a lock on communications” in the tent, he testified. Other Army officers said this was probably a directive to the staff sergeant to keep the conversation to himself. Then he left the staff sergeant to his work: placing Tillman’s uniform, socks, gloves and body armor into a 55-gallon drum and burning them. Several soldiers and officers testified that the primary reason they destroyed the equipment was because it was becoming a “biohazard” and emitting a foul odor. Several Army officers who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan said pulling the plug on base phones and e-mail was routine after a soldier died. The practice was meant to ensure the family was notified through official channels, said Army Maj. Todd Breasseale, chief spokesman for ground forces in Iraq until last August. But the truth was quickly becoming evident to a small group of soldiers with direct access to the evidence. Two other sergeants who examined Tillman’s vest noticed the bullet holes appeared to be from 5.56-caliber bullets _ signature American ammunition. An awful realization dawned on the sergeants, whose names, like those of others who testified in the investigation, were deleted from the recently released testimony. “At this time was when I had realized Tillman may have been killed by friendly fire,” one of them said. The other sergeant, who was higher-ranking, told him to “keep quiet and let the investigators do their job,” the subordinate sergeant testified. He was not to go “informing unit members that Spc. Tillman was killed by friendly fire.” This was the same reason top-ranking officers cited in trying to explain why they waited to tell the Tillman family: They wanted to have the definitive investigation results. Army regulations, however, dictate that the next of kin be informed of additional information about a service member’s death as it becomes available. Then-Col. James C. Nixon, Tillman’s regimental commander, ordered an investigation but directed that the information gathered be shared with as few people as possible until the results were finalized, acting Defense Department Inspector General Thomas Gimble found in a separate probe also completed last month. Nixon, now a brigadier general and director of operations at the Center for Special Operations at MacDill Air Force Base in Florida, said that he was not aware of all regulations governing such a case, and that his missteps were unintentional. Among the top brass at the Pentagon, Lt. Gen. Philip Kensinger, a now-retired three-star general in charge of special operations, represented the Army at Tillman’s memorial service almost two weeks after the soldier’s death. “He decided to withhold notification from family members until all facts concerning the incident could be verified,” Gimble found. Kensinger denied that he knew on the day of the memorial service that friendly fire was suspected. But investigators dismissed his claim as not credible and Kensinger could be punished under military law for making false official statements. Congressional investigators will try to determine how high up the chain of command the information lockdown went. The Army delivered several thousand pages of new documents on Thursday, military officials said. Gen. John Abizaid, then chief of Central Command, in charge of all American forces in the Middle East and Central Asia, testified that he did not learn of the likelihood of friendly fire until sometime between May 6 and May 13 _ two or three weeks after Tillman died _ because he was traveling in the Middle East. And a lieutenant colonel testified that he delayed briefing Central Command lawyers until more than a month after Tillman had died, in part because he feared leaks and did not want to be blamed as the source. But Abizaid visited Afghanistan within a week of Tillman’s death and spoke to Tillman’s platoon leader, then-Lt. David Uthlaut. Uthlaut has testified he did not suspect friendly fire until later. Abizaid’s trip to Afghanistan was not examined by Gimble’s investigators, according to spokesman Gary Comerford. Abizaid had no immediate comment. The new testimony and other documents do not identify who, if anyone, orchestrated the clampdown. Nor do they address whether there was a concerted effort to conceal the truth about the best-known casualty in the war on terrorism. Gimble said last month he found no evidence of such a cover-up. But when asked by a reporter whether he probed why the Army had not told the family in a timely fashion, Gimble said no. One soldier carried a particularly heavy burden of secrecy. Ranger Spc. Russell Baer had witnessed Rangers shooting at Rangers. Afterward, he was directed to travel from Afghanistan to the United States with his friend Kevin Tillman. But he was ordered not to tell Pat Tillman’s brother and fellow Ranger that friendly fire was the likely cause of the former football player’s death. He kept the secret, fearing he did not know the whole story. But in a personal protest, Baer later went AWOL and was demoted as punishment. “I lost respect for the people in charge of me,” Baer testified in an earlier Tillman investigation. He had gleaned “part of the puzzle” of Tillman’s death, but lamented that “I couldn’t tell them about it.” Five investigations and three years later, that information gap is what’s driving the congressional probe, which is also looking into misinformation surrounding the capture and rescue of Pvt. Jessica Lynch in Iraq.last_img read more

Neighbors still shaken by shooting

first_imgFew details have emerged about the victim, a self-employed handyman who neighbors say was an affable family man who moved into the neighborhood six months ago. Investigators are seeking three suspects, but say they’ve established no solid leads. The neighbor said he was friendly with Bright and described him as a congenial outgoing man who loved his family and took pride in maintaining classic cars. He openly wondered whether the crime was random, noting that he knows of no other remotely similar incidents. Bright was a self-employed handyman who moved his family into the area from Los Angeles about six months ago. LANCASTER – A quiet well-heeled west Lancaster neighborhood remained stunned and fearful Friday in the aftermath of a shooting death this week of a neighbor killed by intruders in his own home. “It just seems weird… why that house?” said one neighbor, who asked not to be named. “This is fish-out-of-water stuff.” Marvin Lee Bright, 39, was killed while investigating a disturbance downstairs as his family slept. It was shortly after midnight when shots rang out in the two-story house on West Avenue H-7. Bright’s wife and three children slept through the incident, sheriff’s investigators said. It’s a neighborhood where residents are worried about a spike in graffiti vandalism, not violent crime. “I still feel this is a safe neighborhood, but I’m incredibly shocked,” another neighbor said. gideon.rubin@dailynews.com (661) 267-7802160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Mourinho latest – Valencia ready offer as Man Utd target declares: I’ll be back

first_imgWill he, won’t he? The Jose Mourinho to Manchester United saga goes on, but if they want their man they will have to act soon.Mourinho, coaching a FIFA Legends team against a Mexican All-stars line-up this week, declared he will ‘be back’ in the summer.And, after Louis van Gaal saw the Red Devils’ hopes of a top-four finish dashed at West Ham on Tuesday, the speculation is back on.Last week, it was reported that Old Trafford chiefs had asked the Portuguese to wait another year for the job. But with Champions League football looking increasingly unlikely, United may be tempted to axe their Dutchman in order to bring the in-demand 53-year-old – despite a possible first FA Cup success in 12 years.They face fresh competition from Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain – who are continously linked with the two-time Champions League winner – while the Daily Star reports that Valencia are preparing to offer Mourinho a five-year contract worth £36m as they look to permanently replace Gary Neville.Mourinho told Sky Sports: “In July, I will be back.“So we are in May. May to July is nothing. I keep enjoying my life which I’m doing, keep enjoying my family. But in July I am back.”Mourinho, who was sacked by Chelsea in December after a disastrous Premier League title defence, continued: “It’s difficult because when you get a new club in this period normally the clubs have already done their work.“I give you an example. I’m not the Chelsea manager, but I organised the Chelsea pre-season in many aspects because I did that 10 months ago.“Clubs have their commercial, marketing departments always involved in everything. When a new manager arrives in May, June it’s very difficult to touch in some points, but we know that.” Jose Mourinho has been out of football since leaving Chelsea in December 1last_img read more

Work begins on the latest A.V. school

first_imgLANCASTER – Grading work has started on the Lancaster School District’s $18 million Endeavour Middle School, which will be built in phases to keep costs down. Once the site is prepared, 26 modular classrooms will be installed, and then construction of the permanent core building. “Construction of the permanent campus will start in the next couple of months,” Superintendent Steve Gocke said. “It will be a core building with classrooms, multipurpose room, administration, computer lab and library.” The district is receiving $18 million in state hardship funding to finance construction of the school at 45th Street West and Avenue K, but that is not enough to cover the cost of the entire project. The district cut down the cost by eliminating the gymnasium and half the playing fields and by bidding the project in phases, Gocke said. “It’s not enough. We need about $25 million to do it right,” Gocke said. The district will spend $1.9 million to purchase 26 modular classroom buildings and three modular restroom buildings for the school. The district hopes to open the school in early 2007. Sixth- and seventh-graders are now jammed into a former elementary school campus. “It’s a mess where they are at over at old Jack Northrop Elementary. It’s just too crowded,” Gocke said. The school now has 450 sixth- and seventh-graders. Adding eighth-grade in August will bring enrollment to about 750. Before work can start, the state Department of Fish and Game is requiring that the district hire a biologist to conduct a preconstruction survey of the site for burrowing owls and nesting birds. The cost is $1,570. “It’s to make sure the owl hasn’t moved in since the last time we tested for them,” Gocke said. The district first inspected the parcel for the birds as part of the site selection process and did not find any, he said. karen.maeshiro@dailynews.com (661) 267-5744 AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREOregon Ducks football players get stuck on Disney ride during Rose Bowl event160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

MCGUINNESS – “THE PLAYERS WERE BETRAYED IN 2013 BY ACTIONS OF COUNTY BOARD”

first_imgJim McGuinness has placed the blame of Donegal’s disastrous 2013 campaign firmly at the door of the Donegal county board.Donegal were stunned by Monaghan in the Ulster SFC final that July – and they then suffered a humiliating 16-point loss at the hands of Mayo in the All-Ireland quarter-final. However, McGuinness feels the decision by members of the county board to insist on Donegal SFC games to go ahead during their Ulster campaign ultimately doomed the squad.For McGuinness – it was a betrayal to the players who had given everything for Donegal to ensure they took the All-Ireland title back to Donegal for the first time since 1992.McGuinness revealed that the club games created a bad buzz within the Donegal set-up – as players were taking skin off each other, and then had to train with each other a few days later.McGuinness said, “The boys went off to play in the club championship, and when they reported back, nine had fresh injuries. “Not only that, they were bringing the tension of club games back into the dressing room.“We were trying to recreate the same atmosphere as the year before, based on loyalty and respect for each other. And then they were going out on Saturday evenings marking each other and taking the skin off each other.“Several times we went to games and we’d see the boys boxing each other – three days later they were training together. We could feel ourselves control week by week.McGuinness recalled one training session at the AURA Leisure Centre which summed up the mood within the dressing room.“There had been club championship games on the Saturday evening. Glenties and St Michael’s had been knocked out, so about a third of our squad were physically and emotionally wrecked from that.“There was a bad buzz in the room. We could smell beer off the boys. And I could understand why they had gone out. “The club means a lot to them and it takes time to get over a big defeat. There minds were elsewhere and the mood was tense.“It was negative and oppressive – and it was difficult to shake. It was falling apart in front of us.McGuinness recalled his immediate feeling in the aftermath of that crushing loss to Mayo – and it was a feeling of ‘betrayal.’McGuinness said, “On the way down in the bus all I could think about was the fact we were humiliated by sixteen points in the All-Ireland quarter-final, even though our heads had been in the right place. “I had looked into the boys eyes. I knew they were keen. That was the part I couldn’t stomach. They had been betrayed. And none of us could believe the season was ending like this.“The boys pulled their bags from the back of the bus in the Diamond – and they could hardly look people in the eye because they felt ashamed of the way they had played.“The boys felt as if they had done something wrong. But it wasn’t their fault. It wasn’t their fault.MCGUINNESS – “THE PLAYERS WERE BETRAYED IN 2013 BY ACTIONS OF COUNTY BOARD” was last modified: November 5th, 2015 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:newsSportlast_img read more

HARPS FANS BLAST RTE OVER ‘POOR’ AND ‘NEGATIVE’ COVERAGE ON SOCCER REPUBLIC

first_imgFinn Harps supporters have expressed their disappointment at what they’ve described as ‘poor’ and ‘negative’ coverage from RTE on tonight’s Soccer Republic.  Former Republic of Ireland manager Brian Kerr set the negative tone by criticizing the club’s facilities.Kerr failed to applaud the stunning achievement made by Finn Harps this season, and instead chose to focus on the difficultly of the challenge that lies ahead for them next season.Kerr said the club needed to improve the facilities, dressing room and playing surface at the club – and also said they needed more players to survive in the Premier Division. Kerr said, “It’s going to be a big, big ask for Harps next season, and they’re going to have improve the facilities up there.“They need to improve the dressing room, the playing surface and the overall infrastructure.“They’re going to have to work extremely hard and they need to add more players to their squad, it’s going be very difficulty for them.“But they can take heart at what Longford Town and Galway United have achieved this season. The other members of the panel opted to focus on what next for Limerick – and overall simply overlooked the superb efforts made by all associated with the club.It left a sour taste in the mouths of some Finn Harps fans – who took to Facebook to vent their disappointment.Sam Hegarty posted, “Couldn’t give a fiddlers what the clowns on RTE have to say about Harps.“We’re up and looking forward to the crying. UTH.Hugh Boyle posted, “What a bunch of clowns. Nothing positive to say? Barely mentioned the fact a 17-year-old schoolboy scored a peach to send us into the Premier Division. “Would it not have been nice to focus on that, was looking forward to the coverage too and then we were given that.“People not happy we’re back, but we are the Harps and we don’t care!HARPS FANS BLAST RTE OVER ‘POOR’ AND ‘NEGATIVE’ COVERAGE ON SOCCER REPUBLIC was last modified: November 10th, 2015 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:newsSportlast_img read more
