Just like de old lady, some MPs really worried!

first_imgDe Bellcrier met an ordinary old lady de other day and during de conversation, she seh how worried she is if Uncle Donald is to win de upcoming elections. I tell she that Uncle Donald is a past President and he not running fuh elections. She tell me I don’t listen and that she mean Uncle Trump. She expected me to know which Uncle Donald she was talking about. Not wanting fuh argue about that, I ask if she is a US citizen. She said no and she is a citizen of East Coast. She worry because she gat family in Uncle Trump country (now she specify) and if some of the things come through he seh he gon do if he win, de lil small-piece she does normally get from foreign, could dry up like how business drying up in GT. De business people worried too!What come out from the conversation is that no matter how far something deh, it still affecting yuh, just like how de sun deh millions a miles away and it does bun you pun a sunny day. Is de same way some Olympic athletes who live in lands far away from Brazil worry about de upcoming games! But with big events like that, de show does always go on! One show that going on and going on really big, is de CPL! Warriors fans was worried in de first game which was a thriller! But like true champions, de Warriors come through and erase de fans worries! De other teams now worry about Guptil and de rest of de Warriors! De Bellcrier seh keep dem worried Warriors! While de lady worrying about something far far away, some worrying about things right here!Plenty people happy over de recent big oil find that making international news and putting de country in a positive spotlight. But others worry about de process and how de wealth would reach de masses. While dem teking comfort that is early days, dem worryiness not going away easy. Dem seh while oil does bring plenty wealth, it does also bring other things. Dem not sehin what is de other things! Also, word is that smoking in public places here might soon get ban. Smokers worried, especially dem who must get nicotine very often! Don’t be surprise if de smokers ask for a commission of inquiry to determine what is a public place. Apparently, dem who most worry is some MP’s who must “light up”! Dem worry because Parliament is at Public Building! So is both de ordinary lady and some law makers worry! Some hollering that is an example of equity in de country! Ting-a-ling-ling!last_img read more

Special order

first_imgAthletes ages eight to 80 will compete in 10 different sports at the event, Dawn Brooks said. “Kids love them,” Brooks said. “When a police officer walks up to them and talks to them, their faces just light up.” Sheriff’s deputies will serve food on Wednesday. CHP and Corrections officers will serve on Thursday. “Anytime we can help children, it’s always going to be a worthy cause,” CHP officer Henry Ross said. “I think it’s good for the children, and it’s good for the community.” gideon.rubin@dailynews.com (661) 267-7802160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

About 500 such athletes will compete June9 in the 2007 High Desert Special Olympic Games at Antelope Valley College. “It’s fantastic,” Antelope Valley Special Olympics fundraising coordinator Dawn Brooks said. “It’s a show of support from the community that’s not just the family members. That they’re giving their time for the kids that they don’t have to. “It’s good P.R. for us and for them.” Brooks said her 11-year-old daughter, Kaylin, who suffers from Down syndrome, will compete in the Special Olympics for a fourth year. In past years, she said, Kaylin has given any medals she has won to law-enforcement officials in appreciation of their help putting on the games. LANCASTER – Law-enforcement officials rely on tips from the public every day in their crime-fighting efforts. Later this week, they will need the public to help a local charity. Officials from three agencies – the Sheriff’s Department, the California Highway Patrol and the state Department of Corrections – will serve food at a Lancaster eatery to raise money for the Antelope Valley chapter of the Special Olympics. All tip money raised during lunch (11a.m. to 2p.m.) and dinner (5p.m to 9p.m.) hours on Wednesday and Thursday at Marie Callender’s will benefit local athletes with disabilities. last_img read more

first_imgFINE GAEL is still considering expelling Cllr Terence Slowey from the party, donegaldaily.com has learned.The Ardara politician refused to resign from Donegal County Council despite admitting he claimed double expenses for two meetings in Kerry and Cork on the same day in 2008.Members of the county council discussed the matter on Monday but no action was taken against Cllr Slowey who paid back more than €1,000 he over-claimed from the incident. Sinn Fein whip Mick Quinn said that while Cllr Slowey was a very decent man, such actions could not be accepted and called for him to resign.However Cllr Slowey said he had made a genuine mistake and had no intention of giving up his seat on the council.A meeting of the Fine Gael Disciplinary Committee held two weeks ago has yet to make a decision on Cllr Slowey.A well-placed source told donegaldaily.com that the matter is far from over and that Fine Gael are determined that such incidents do not overshadow their image as they ”enter a new era of politics.” “The issue is still very much a live one and we are certainly not sweeping it under the carpet – far from in it fact.“Cllr Slowey’s future within the Fine Gael party is still very much in the balance and nothing has yet been decided about his future membership of the party.“We cannot say too much more at this stage but the message has to go out that Fine Gael will not tolerate such matters – even if Cllr Slowey claims it was a genuine mistake,” said the source.EndsFINE GAEL STILL CONSIDER FUTURE OF SLOWEY WITHIN PARTY was last modified: April 28th, 2011 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) Tags:ArdaraCllr Sloweylast_img read more

Last-second TD lifts Miller over Ike

first_img With his team down by three, but with the ball at the Eisenhower 5 and the final seconds ticking off the clock, Tyree called for Springer to spike the ball, hoping to have two seconds on the clock to kick the game-tying field goal. Instead of throwing the ball into the ground, Springer got the snap and took off for the goal line, scoring as time expired, and giving Miller a 27-24 Citrus Belt League victory over Eisenhower on Friday night. FONTANA – A third-string quarterback is not normally supposed to ignore the play calls of the head coach. But A.B. Miller’s A.J. Springer did, and coach John Tyree did not mind. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 “I was going to spike it, but saw three … two.. one…,” Springer explained to his laughing coach after the game. It looked like Miller was going to slam the door earlier in the fourth quarter. Springer hit receiver Rudy Sanchez for a 34-yard TD pass, putting the Rebels up 21-17. Eisenhower’s potent run game, led by senior Courtney Randle, kept attacking, but Miller’s defense held into the fourth quarter. The Rebels (2-3, 1-1) had the ball inside the Ike 30 with more than six minutes left, but they failed to convert on a key fourth down play, seemingly opening the door for Ike to come back. They did just that, using nine plays, all rushing, before Randle took one in from 27 yards out, putting the Eagles on top 24-21. center_img There was only 1:41 left in the game, but the sophomore Springer, making his first career start, made the most of it for the Rebels. “When you change horses mid-stream, you’re gonna get your feet wet … we finally found a quarterback who can get it done,” Tyree said. Springer started the final drive with two key option carries, then hit Lawrence Akwaboah for a 27-yard pass, putting the ball on the 3. Two failed runs seemed to set up the spike and field goal attempt, before Springer made his fateful decision and scored the game-winning touchdown. “I felt a little pressure. But I thought if I want to be a starter, this is what starting quarterbacks do,” he said. Springer threw for 116 yards and a TD, while Randle rushed for 214 yards and three TDs for Eisenhower (2-3, 1-1). 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
