SBVC men take over first place in Foothill

first_imgBoth SBVC guards played all 40 minutes against Chaffey’s full-court press. Hurdle tallied 28 points on 11-for-18 shooting with six assists and six rebounds. McKinstry chalked up 13 points, eight assists, and six steals but did have 14 turnovers. “I was using my timeouts just to give those guys a break,” SBVC interim coach Gerry Wright said. “I told them at the half I was going to try and spell them but they said they were ready to go play 20 more minutes.” Chaffey, the defending conference champion, dominated the first meeting between the teams, winning 117-99. But SBVC took control in the middle of the second half and was not threatened after that. The game was knotted at 53 with 13:55 to go when the Wolverines went on a 13-0 run with nine of those points coming from Hurdle. He also nailed a 3-pointer with 8:43 left that made it 69-54 and the Wolverines never looked back. SAN BERNARDINO – San Bernardino Valley College is used to wearing down other teams. The same is true for Chaffey College. So something had to give as the teams battled for Foothill Conference supremacy Wednesday. Chaffey suffered a blow when 6-foot-10 center Kenny Hicks was called for two technical fouls and was ejected from the game with 1:25 left in the first half and the Panthers down 42-34. That ejection means he can not play Saturday against Antelope Valley, an opponent with a strong inside presence. All five SBVC starters finished in double figures with Johnny Barnes adding 17 points, 18 rebounds and three blocks in 38 minutes. Lewis Leonard chipped in with 13 points and Devon Davis added 10 with eight rebounds. SBVC had a commanding 53-37 rebounding edge and shot 56 percent (36-for-64). Chaffey shot just 34 percent (24-for-75) including 9-for-39 from long distance. Anthony Carson and Alywn Jordan led the Panthers with 14 points each. “We’re so used to winning that when we face some adversity we had some bad attitudes,” Klein said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Hundreds Pay Final Respects to Seymour Mullings

first_imgStory Highlights Mr. Mullings was laid to rest in the church’s cemetery, next to his mother, Victoria Mullings. Hundreds of Jamaicans, from all walks of life, travelled to the hills of Claremont, St. Ann on October 24, to pay their final respects to the late former Deputy Prime Minister, Seymour St. Edward “Foggy” Mullings, OJ, CD.Mourners filled the St. Matthew’s Anglican Church, where the official funeral service was held. Tents were erected on the lawns of the church to facilitate the large number of people that turned up at the 168-year-old sanctuary.Nature, as if recognizing the solemn occasion, provided a cool breeze, which gave some relief from the warm conditions.The funeral service began at exactly 11:00 am with musical prelude, featuring world renowned musician and entertainer, Stephen “Cat” Coore, and Norma Walters.Bible lessons were read by Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Portia Simpson Miller; and Leader of the Opposition, Andrew Holness, while former Prime Minister, the Most Hon. P.J. Patterson did the remembrance.There were tributes on behalf of the Claremont community by Lloyd Garrick; Mr. Mulling’s sister, Mrs. Phyllis Amber, on behalf of the Mullings family; and from Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries, Hon. Roger Clarke on behalf of the People’s National Party, all of which underscored the simple but exemplary life of the late Mr. Mullings.There was also a musical selection by Myrna Hague and poem by Mr. Mulling’s granddaughter, Rhianna Hemans.In his remembrance, Mr. Patterson described Mr. Mullings as “one of a kind”. He noted that “his sound upbringing and calm temperament made him uniquely fitted for the time and space, which he occupied in Jamaica’s political history”.Mr. Patterson stated further that the sharpness of mind of Mr. Mullings, his ease of manner and his love and respect for people as individuals, marked him as a man who no reasonable person could dislike.“This unassuming patriot has lived a life of service in exemplary manner and never deviated in the struggle to build a new Jamaica, triumphant, proud and free”, he added.In the Homily, The Right Rev. Robert Thompson stated that “perhaps what we will remember most about Seymour, is the fact that he never lost sight of his common humanity……no artificial distance existed between himself and others.”Rev. Thompson said that Mr. Mullings will also be remembered as a servant leader, one who built a network of relationships based on openness and trust.Following the service, Mr. Mullings was laid to rest in the church’s cemetery. He was buried next to his mother, Victoria Mullings, who died in January 1996.Mr. Mullings died on October 9 at the age 82, following a period of illness. His contribution to public life spanned some four decades, which saw him serving in the areas of health, youth development, foreign affairs, finance, and agriculture. He also had a three-year stint as Jamaica’s Ambassador to the United States.He first entered Parliament in 1969, and served until 1983, when his party did not contest the General Elections of that year. He re-entered Parliament in February 1989, and remained a Member until he retired in 2001.Mr. Mullings headed the Ministries of Health and Social Security; Finance and the Public Service; Agriculture; and Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade. Former Prime Minister, the Most Hon. P.J. Patterson did the remembrance.center_img Mourners filled the St. Matthew’s Anglican Church, where the official funeral service was held.

Canada promises youth centre after Indigenous Affairs Minister meets with Attawapiskat youth

first_img(Indigenous Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett (4th from the left) met with leadership and community members in Attawapiskat Monday. Photo from Carolyn Bennett’s twitter feed)Annette Francis APTN National NewsATTAWAPISKAT — After getting off the flight from Timmins, Indigenous Affaris Minister Carolyn Bennett and NDP MP Charlie Angus headed to the centre of Attawapiskat to where a number of young people were waiting to have their say.The meeting began with an opening prayer and then went right into statements and questions from a number of young people like Robert Sutherland, 20, who was first to the podium.“Tell me why we First Nations live in third world conditions,” Sutherland asked. “Why is it so easy for the government to welcome refugees and offer them first-class citizenship in our country? When will Canada wake up and open its eyes to First Nations communities?”Bennett is in the community to meet with officials and to hear from youth and families. The open door meeting took approximately two hours.So inspiring #Attawapiskat Youth-nd4 secure personal cultural identity,youth centre,land-based prog,healing #cdnpoli pic.twitter.com/MfjB6ZpLc5— Carolyn Bennett (@Carolyn_Bennett) April 19, 2016In the end, the minister committed to a youth centre and programming. In addition, a youth delegation from across the region will be invited to Ottawa.“It is about us just deciding to work together. Listening to the youth. Listening to chief in council,” said Bennett. “What are their priorities and how do we make it happen across government departments and across jurisdictions.”Grinning ear to ear, Sutherland said he’s pleased with the first meeting. In spite the hardships in the community, there’s hope.“When they said they’re gonna approve our youth centre, our youth site, that’s the main goal to bring in some programs to bring back self-identity, activities, I’m happy and a lot of youth are happy,” said Sutherland.”We know crisis that is happening won’t go away overnight. We will not give up” Attawapiskat youth today pic.twitter.com/NfzIfhrPZE— Irwin Elman (@OntarioAdvocate) April 18, 2016The Provincial Advocate for Children and Youth, Irwin Elman, was witness to the meeting. Elman spent the weekend in the community, talking with families, children and youth.Elman said he sensed the young people felt good about the meeting, but he remains cautiously optimist.“The proof is in the pudding and I think we have to see what come of it,” said Elman. “A youth centre is very important, but they need to begin to make that real and start planning.”He said there’s a real deficit in the community including housing, and mental health supports. If you rest that youth centre on the foundation of services that perhaps don’t exist, that youth centre could have a hard time being successful.We had profound meeting with Attawapiskat youth. Will build youth centre, support programming, healing plans and youth delegation to Ottawa— Charlie Angus NDP (@CharlieAngusNDP) April 19, 2016Charlie Angus, the NDP Indigenous Affairs critic, called it an important beginning in ending what he called this “cycle of despair.”“I’m pleased we have something deliverable for the young people,” Angus said. “Is this enough given the extent of the crisis that has faced Attawapiskat? No, it’s not enough yet, but we have to start with this first step.”Speaking briefly after her meeting with the chief, Bennett noted larger issues such as the acute shortage of housing, the desire for a healing lodge as well as the ongoing concerns of the youth.All levels of government and departments need to work together to “provide hope and a plan,” she said.“The chief is very clear: we need to work no longer Band-Aid and piecemeal.”Shisheesh said he’s happy with what had been achieved.“The meeting was good and we’re getting somewhere,” he said.But how quickly anything will change remains to be seen. The youth centre, for example, did not carry an immediate dollar figure.In the interim, the youth of Attawapiskat said they’re tired of waiting for an acknowledgement of their struggles.A huge part of the problem, they say, some of them tearfully, is that young people have lost a sense of who they are.“If we can restore the self-identity to our youth, it gives them something to stand on, it gives them something that’s theirs, it gives them something good to live for,” Sutherland said.“We don’t ask for much.”afrancis@aptn.ca— with files from the Canadian Presslast_img read more

Among the donations, Costco provided hundreds of pounds of apples and carrots for the horses, according to Twitter.Among the most needed items are muck buckets and pitchforks; shavings; feed, alfalfa, timothy and Bermuda; lead ropes and halters; blankets; and hooks and clips, according to the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club. The club said air mattresses, clothes, toiletries, gloves, and blankets and bedding are needed for stable workers.Related Link: At least 25 horses killed as Lilac Fire spreads through North CountyThe horses are being kept in more than 40 barns in the backstretch of the racetrack, which can hold 1,600 of them.The thoroughbred club, which operates the two annual horse racing seasons at Del Mar, joined Santa Anita Park and The Stronach Group, owners of San Luis Rey Downs, in establishing a GoFundMe account to aid those impacted by the fire at the training facility. It can be accessed at www.gofundme.com/thoroughbredcare.In just six hours, the account had raised more than $292,000.The American Association of Equine Practitioners also has a website for those wishing to donate toward relief, at www.foundation.aaep.org/disasterrelief.The California Horse Racing Board said individuals at San Luis Rey risked their lives by trying to free the horses from their stalls and herd them into the safer infield area and training track. One worker who documented his efforts on Facebook of trying to release horses at the center as the fire neared was being lauded on social media as a hero.Meanwhile, workers and volunteers at Del Mar and nearby ranches that had taken in horses from San Luis Rey were still working to identify some of the equines as some continued to search for missing horses and others made grim discoveries.LRF Racing Club, which lost its 2-year-old colt Oddsmaker, announced on Twitter that one of its 4-year-old fillies, Riri, was still “unaccounted for,” then later posted the bleak news that they had “lost a 2nd horse.” Massive volunteer effort at Del Mar brings supplies to more than 800 horses, other large animals evacuated by Lilac Fire Updated: 3:28 PM December 8, 2017 The horse community is uniting to support the horses and humans affected by the tragic fire at the San Luis Rey Training Center.

It’s just horrible,” Koch told TVG. “There’s a lot of people out there who are really sad and I’m one of ’em.”Harris D. Auerbach initially tweeted that there was “still no word” on the whereabouts of the 4-year-old colt Puig after the blaze, then tweeted less than a half-hour later, “Unfortunately, Puig did not make it and perished in the Lilac Fire at San Luis Rey Downs. RIP handsome boy. I am completely gutted.”But Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners’ missing filly, Onassis, turned up at Del Mar on Thursday night.Eclipse’s president, Aron Wellman, posted his own first-hand account online of finding the filly after he headed to Del Mar to help the equine evacuees and “resigned myself to refraining from the selfish mission of finding the one horse Eclipse had stabled at San Luis Rey to simply being a small part of contributing to the greater good.”” … I was overcome with emotion and wrapped my arms around her sweaty, hot, veiny and pulsating neck, and draped my body onto her shoulder,” Wellman wrote in the posting on Eclipse Thoroughbred’s website about finding her at Del Mar. “In an almost surreal turn of events, Onassis was there for me. She was reassuring me. She was comforting me. A 2-year-old filly who had been through hell and back and seen and lived pure horror was consoling me.”He wrote that “there were tears of joy aplenty as trainers, owners and workers were reunited with their horses who could be identified … and, there were tears of sorrow as sad reports trickled in from 1st-hand sources.”Also found was Rockingham Ranch’s Richard’s Boy, which placed second in the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint at Del Mar last month.”I’m just overwhelmed with gratitude for all the volunteers who are at Del Mar right now and to the amazing @Twitter horse community who has helped get the message out. I’m so (grateful) for all of you,” Rockingham manager Brian Trump said on Twitter.last_img read more

Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah all set to get muchdeserved rest

first_imgKohli and Bumrah have played leading parts in India’s success across formatsGLYN KIRK/AFP/Getty ImagesThe two most valuable cricketers in Indian cricket at the moment – Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah – are all set to receive a well-deserved rest after performing with incredible consistency over a prolonged period of time. Kohli has been India’s leading batsman while Bumrah the most important bowler in all three formats since late 2017 and the two have rarely missed a series or tournament.These two will now be given a break during India’s tour to West Indies which follows the World Cup. As per a report put out by PTI, both these men would not be selected for the limited-overs leg of the tour. The two-match Test series that will be played after the limited-overs contest are bound to be considered more important as it is part of the World Test Championship that is scheduled to get underway.”Virat and Jasprit will certainly be rested for the three-match T20Is and three-match ODI series. Virat has been playing since the start of Australia series and Bumrah’s workload management is also paramount. They will join the team before the Test series,” PTI reported an anonymous senior official of the BCCI as saying. Indian team’s tour of West Indies begins in early AugustTwitter/BCCIIndia’s tour of West Indies begins in early august. The final of the ongoing World Cup will be played on July 14. As can be clearly understood, there will be a relatively short period for recuperation that Indian players will have. The first Test begins on August 22 and the practice game preceding it would take place on August 17-19 in Antigua. Kohli and Bumrah will join the team prior to it. Last year, Kohli had been rested from the Asia Cup ODI tournament which took place in UAE and Rohit Sharma given the charge of leading the Indian side. India emerged victorious in that tournament. Bumrah, on the other hand, missed the ODI series in England due to an injury. Since then, both have been playing regularly. Nobody can grudge them a few days off.last_img read more
