BUSY SCHEDULE When Cavahn McKenzie died at the end of a 2014 cross-country race in Trinidad and Tobago, it was awful for St Jago High School. His teammates got the news as they contested the Gibson-McCook Relays and it crushed them. Their schoolmate, teammate and friend had left them for international duty and, tragically, never returned home. Unfortunately, the same kind of tragedy has visited St George’s College with the equally sad passing of their Manning Cup football captain, Dominic James. This time, there was a cruel twist as he died during a Manning Cup game, with spectators there to witness his last moments. Truly, for all present, it must have been a terrible moment. These gruesome things scarcely happen in sport which is entertainment for many. Yet, the grief felt by everyone has to jump-start new provisions to safeguard the health of athletes at every level. In this regard, the early announcement about heart-screening high-school student athletes becoming mandatory is most welcome. After McKenzie’s untimely passing in Trinidad and Tobago, Team Jamaica Bickle, that wonderful group of Penn Relay benefactors, has assisted with screening athletes and by donating machines – known as defibrillators – which are designed to restart hearts. This may have to become standard for high school, club and national sport. As a precaution, it may also be wise to extend the schoolboy football season into January. The present season squashes the Manning and daCosta Cup, the Walker Cup and Ben Francis KO and the FLOW Super Cup into a rapid-fire schedule that has teams playing three times in seven days, with complications if rainy weather intervenes. The schedule gets busy for the top teams, when the later stages of the Corporate Area Manning Cup and the rural area daCosta Cup commingles with the Super Cup and the Corporate Area Walker Cup and the rural area Ben Francis knockout competitions. The congestion is no one’s fault. There are far more eligible schools than in bygone days. Luckily, the solution is simple. The schedule could be relaxed by moving the Super Cup into January, the first month of the Easter term. That is a matter for another day. Right now, the Light Blues need our love and support. As with the St Jago case, James’ family and his teammates at St George’s College need counselling and the steadfast embrace of every Jamaican. At times like these, the only choice is to stand together. – Hubert Lawrence has made notes at trackside since 1980.

Performing will be jazz bands from La Serna, California, La Mirada, Santa Fe, Pioneer and Brea Olinda high schools. The bands will take the stage two at a time. A coin flip will determine which band plays first. After the two performances, the two bands will come together to play one last piece. “That’s the tradition and that’s the way we do it,” Nelson said. Terry Dawson, director for the Santa Fe High band, said his students are excited at the chance of showing off what they have been working on throughout the semester. Most of the bands on the bill have been preparing for the event since Christmas, local band leaders said. “The students look forward to it. It’s one of the highlights of the whole season,” Dawson said. This is the first year that bands from La Serna High and Pioneer High will be taking part in the event. After playing individually, both bands will come together to perform Harry James’s “Two O’Clock Jump.” “The students absolutely love it,” said Craig McKenzie, director of Pioneer High’s band. “It’s very easy to get the students motivated when you remind them that the battle of the bands is coming up. “They want to be their best because they know the audience is going be big – it’s all of Whittier,” he added. The Whittier Sunrise Rotary Club started the event seven years ago as a way to raise funds for its charitable activities, said Nelson. All the proceeds will be used to help music programs in local schools, as well as for other charitable activities. “It’s a win-win-win situation,” Nelson said. “The most important thing is that the kids get to perform for a very appreciative audience.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

WHITTIER – The glory days of the swing era will be revived Friday when six local high school jazz bands perform at a “Battle of the Bands.” But the concert, to be held at Whittier Area Community Church, is not really a battle in the strictest sense, organizers said. “Official winners are not part of the battle tradition,” said John Nelson, co-chairman of the event, which is presented by the Whittier Sunrise Rotary Club Foundation Inc. “There is no first, second or third. The competition is just the two bands sitting side by side, alternating pieces,” he said.

The agreement is raising questions from local officials and community activists, who have a long history of opposing the expansion of flights at Moffett Field, a historic airport that was once under the supervision of the U.S. Navy, but was transferred to NASA in 1994. “The Google flights represent the possibility that the camel’s nose is under the tent, and that NASA is looking at opening up the use of the runways to help pay for it,” said Lenny Siegel, director of the Pacific Studies Center, a local nonprofit group that over the years has opposed various proposed expansions of civilian flights at Moffett Field. “The majority of the people in the community are against that.” Siegel said he was hoping NASA would provide clear answers about the agreement. “If they are doing science missions, that’s OK,” Siegel said. “If they are doing it just because they are rich and popular, it is not OK.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

SAN FRANCISCO – In the annals of perks enjoyed by America’s corporate executives, the founders of Google may have set a new standard: an uncrowded, federally managed runway for their private jet that is only a few minutes’ drive from their offices. For $1.3 million a year, Larry Page and Sergey Brin get to park their customized wide-body Boeing 767-200, as well as two other jets used by top Google executives, on Moffett Field, an airport run by NASA that is generally closed to private aircraft. It is a perk that is likely to turn other Silicon Valley tycoons green with envy as no other private jets have landing rights there. But it may not sit well with a community that generally considers itself proud to have Google in its midst. How did the two billionaires get such a coveted parking place for the jet, which is unusually large and rare by private jet standards? Officials at the Ames Research Center of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration said the agency signed a unique agreement last month that allows it to place scientific instruments and researchers on planes used by the Google founders. NASA gets to collect scientific data on some flights of those jets, which in addition to the Boeing 767-200 includes two Gulfstream V’s. “It was an opportunity for us to defray some of the fixed costs we have to maintain the airfield as well as to have flights of opportunity for our science missions,” said Steven Zornetzer, associate director for institutions and research at the Ames Center. “It seemed like a win-win situation.” NASA said it had already run one mission on one of the Gulfstream V’s, to observe the Aurigid meteor shower on Aug. 31. Moffett Field is nearly adjacent to Google’s Mountain View, Calif., headquarters, and the four-mile drive between the two locations takes just seven minutes, according to Google Maps. Other Silicon Valley executives have to fight traffic to get to their large jets parked at San Francisco or San Jose international airports or even farther away. Two private aviation industry executives said that parking two Gulfstream V’s at San Francisco or San Jose airports would cost between $240,000 and $360,000 a year, or more, depending on the parking location and the amount of fuel purchased. As for the Boeing, one of the executives, who asked not to be identified because his wealthy clients insist on privacy, said that most private jet facilities at large airports are not equipped to take in a jet that big. “It’s like if you lived in a condo and decided to own a semi,” he said.
A suspect wanted in the slaying of a man outside a Pico Rivera 7-Eleven last year is in custody, homicide investigators announced Tuesday. Michael Jaimez, 26, of Santa Fe Springs was apprehended after he fled police in Los Angeles when officers attempted to stop a vehicle for a traffic violation, police said. Jaimez and another passenger led police on a pursuit on the Long Beach (710) Freeway in the early morning hours of Feb. 23, said Los Angeles Police Department Officer Mark Phillips. As the vehicle fled from police, the occupants tossed two guns out of the car, Phillips said. Police used a spike strip to stop the car in Bakersfield. After arresting Jaimez, police discovered he was wanted in the Aug. 25, 2005, killing of Aron Adagio, 30, a videographer from Downey, who was shot outside the Pico Rivera 7-Eleven store. “We have a very strong case against Jaimez,” said Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Sgt. Alec MacArthur. Jaimez was allegedly shown on the store’s surveillance video on the night of the killing. He is seen buying a case of Budweiser beer just before the shooting. Jaimez and another suspect allegedly drove to the store in the 9300 block of Slauson Avenue early that morning. After buying beer, detectives allege that Jaimez shot Adagio in the head. Adagio also stopped at the store to buy beer. Jaimez allegedly fired shots at Adagio’s two friends, who escaped and later identified Jaimez as the shooter, said MacArthur. “We have no idea what the motive was,” MacArthur said. “It was a senseless shooting. That’s what makes it so cold-blooded.” Another suspect allegedly with Jaimez at the time of the shooting has been identified. Deanne Ariza, 22, of Santa Fe Springs turned herself in to authorities on Oct. 20, 2005, after surveillance photos were released. She is awaiting trial and has been charged with accessory to murder after the fact. She allegedly drove Jaimez to the 7-Eleven. Jaimez was arraigned in Whittier Court and has pleaded not guilty. He is being held in North County Correctional Facility on $2 million bail. firstname.lastname@example.org (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3026 AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Minister Joe McHugh has launched a Safety Training extension to National Fisheries College in Greencastle.Minister McHugh said he was delighted to see first-hand the expert training BIM provides in the National Fisheries College in Greencastle and to meet the students that represent a bright future for our important fishing sector.“Our fishing sector is the lifeblood of many communities in Donegal and Greencastle in particular. Worth over €850 million annually, the Irish Seafood Industry has made significant changes in recent years to take advantage of the clear market demand for quality seafood at home and on our key markets. It employs 11,000 people, both directly and indirectly and is now recognised as the sector within our ‘Blue Economy’ that offers the most immediate potential for growth. “To realise this potential, Minister Coveney launched the first tranche of European Maritime Fisheries Fund in January. The schemes, to be administered by BIM, will provide an investment of €142 million to the industry over the next four years which is a positive development for the entire industry.“This investment will deliver greater added value, innovation, training and sustainability supports to the sector which will in return contribute increased employment and revenue to our coastal communities.”BIM plan to invest €1.5 million to build a Sea Survival Training Centre here on this site in Greencastle.The National Fisheries College in Greencastle.The new centre will include a state of the art simulator pool that can reproduce extreme weather conditions so fishermen can experience what it is really like to be faced with an emergency at sea. “I would again like to congratulate BIM on the exemplary training service they provide to the industry. This new development will deliver a bespoke training service to our fishermen and a safer industry as a result.”Also attending the launch, Fine Gael Councillor Bernard McGuinness, “I am delighted to attend today’s launch, the safety of our fishermen is of paramount importance and with additional training and innovation, the benefit to the industry is undeniable. I also want to commend Minister Coveney, and BIM on their excellent work in this area and highlight my support for this investment into our fishing sector, which plays such a vital role in Donegal.”MINISTER LAUNCHES SAFETY TRAINING EXTENSION AT GREENCASTLE COLLEGE was last modified: February 15th, 2016 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)
“I would get him out the door, absolutely. Not even a consideration.“Change the direction with this, Mourinho has got to be backed.“People talk about Woodward’s relationship with Mourinho – forget what you think you saw in the summer, because he gave him a new contract in January!“He is Woodward’s man and he needs to intervene behind the scenes to remove this player from the scenario and give the manager an opportunity to move forward.” “The logical thing is Pogba is sold and they move on in a better direction… …You can’t have a player sitting in the stands, wearing sunglasses at 10pm and leaving before the end of the game.” 😡🗣️@SJOpinion10 says #MUFC have no choice but to sell Paul Pogba!Agree? 🤔 pic.twitter.com/BZZs8Wxl81— talkSPORT (@talkSPORT) September 26, 2018 Speaking about the Pogba-Mourinho situation at Manchester United with talkSPORT host Jim White on Wednesday, he said: “We wouldn’t be having this discussion if Pogba was pulling up trees, if he was playing well, but he’s not playing well and he hasn’t contributed.“A myth has come out of the World Cup that he was brilliant at the World Cup, but he wasn’t!“He was OK at the World Cup. Mbappe was brilliant, Griezmann was brilliant and Kante was brilliant – Pogba was noise.“I think the logical thing is Pogba gets sold and Manchester United move on in a better direction than the one they’re currently going in.“You can’t have a player sitting in the stands, looking like Dr Dre in sunglasses at 10pm, watching the team and then leaving before the end of the game because it doesn’t suit him to be there.

Manchester United must back manager Jose Mourinho by selling Paul Pogba when the transfer window reopens in January, believes former Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan.The talkSPORT regular says the rave reviews Pogba earned for his performances at the World Cup were ‘a myth’ and that he has not delivered since returning to Old Trafford for £89million two years ago.
