Champion sprinter POKER STAR goes for his fifth consecutive victory at Caymanas Park today, this against five opponents in the 3-y-o and up grade one feature for the Lady Geeta Trophy over 1200 metres.From the stables of 15-time champion trainer Wayne DaCosta, the classy 4-y-o gelding reports to the wicket after winning both races this season, beginning on January 2 with the St Catherine Cup over 1100 metres ahead of CAMPESINO and the Eileen Cliggott Memorial Trophy grade one feature over 1300 metres on February 20 at the expense of PHINEAS.Having been crowned Caribbean Sprint champion on Superstakes day last November, the son of Liquidity-Buyabook has not looked back and it will take a superlative performance from one of his opponents to lower his colours.PERFECT DRAWDespite having to carry topweight of 57.0 kg with Robert Halledeen aboard, POKER STAR will report just as sharp. And coming from a perfect draw on the outside, he looks hard to oppose in this sprint, despite the presence of the consistent UPPA TUNE and the 2014 sprint champion POTCHEEN, both conditioned by in-form trainer Harry Parsard.UPPA TUNE, the mount of promising claiming apprentice Bebeto Harvey from the convenient mark of 52.0 kg, will more than likely set off in front from the number one post position. But I doubt this American 7-y-o horse will be able to escape the chasing POKER STAR in the straight, leaving the back-to -form POTCHEEN, with Jevanne Erwin again in the saddle, to carry the fight late in the race.For obvious reasons, the choice has to be the Alexander Haber-owned POKER STAR.Other firm fancies on the card are BALLON D’OR in the opening race over 1700 metres; the well-forward debutante LOTTERY TICKET in the fourth for maiden three-year-olds; recent winner FORCE DE JOUR to repeat In the eighth; and ROUGH PATRICK for returning trainer Adin ‘Dreddie’ Williams in the closing race.

(AP Photo/Gerald Herbert)NEW ORLEANS — The New Orleans Pelicans weren’t concerned when the Cavaliers went 8 for 8 from beyond the arc to build a 13-point first-quarter lead.“It’s like the stock market,” Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said. “At some point, there has to be an adjustment.”ADVERTISEMENT Ginebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title “I thought we did some good things in spurts, but we didn’t sustain,” Cavaliers coach Larry Drew said. “We just have to buckle down and try to put four solid quarters together, which we haven’t been able to do.”Cleveland’s bench outscored the starters. Jordan Clarkson led the reserves with 21 points, Matthew Dellavedova had 17, Cameron Payne had 16 and Ante Zizic had 10 as the group totaled 75 points. Alec Burks led the starters with 17 points, and Collin Sexton added 13.“The problem tonight was not the offense,” Drew said. “It was the defense.”TIP-INSCavaliers: F Larry Nance Jr. did not play because of an injury to his right knee that he suffered a night earlier in a game against Indiana. … The Cavaliers allowed a season-high in points five days after the Pelicans handed them their most lopsided loss of the season, 133-98 in Cleveland.Pelicans: F Nikola Mirotic returned after a 12-game absence due to an ankle injury. …The Pelicans’ 41 points in the third quarter tied a season high for points in a period. … Davis made 12 of 13 free throws in the third quarter, setting a franchise record for both attempts and makes in a quarter.ROOKIE COMING ONJackson had a season high in points for the second consecutive game.

… Ministry awaiting results on seven more suspected casesPublic Health Minister Dr George Norton has stated that there are 35 confirmed cases of Zika Virus inPublic Health Minister, Dr George NortonGuyana, which is a significant leap from the initial seven.Speaking to Guyana Times recently, Norton stated that the Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA) has sent back a report stating that there are 35 confirmed cases of the virus. However, he noted that they are re-testing the results of some seven more cases before releasing a final report.Previously, there were only seven reported cases of the virus in the country and the Health Ministry had embarked on an aggressive fogging exercise to combat its spread. The ministry has also been distributing treated mosquito nets to all health facilities, including private medical institutions.The Zika Virus is transmitted by the Aides Aegypti mosquito, known to be aggressive daytime biters but also bite at nights. Symptoms of the virus include: fever, headache, joint and muscle pain, rash and sometimes swelling of the limbs. In rare cases, persons may experience vomiting, abdominal pains and diarrhoea.The virus can be passed on from a pregnant woman to her foetus, possibly resulting in certain brain defects. The virus has been linked specifically to a brain deformity called microcephaly, which results in the abnormal smallness of the infants’ head. This disorder results in incomplete brain development.Thus, the ministry has advocated that persons avoid getting pregnant during this time. And if they do, they do it at their own risk. The ministry had advised that all pregnant women attend each of the antenatal clinic dates and use mosquito nets.There are as yet no vaccines for the virus; however, the symptoms are treated symptomatically.Zika was first spotted in Berbice when a woman, 27, tested positive in January, 2016. The virus has since spread to other regions, predominately in Region Four.Dr Norton also stated that the four pregnant women who were tested positive with the virus are all recovering. He revealed that three of the mothers had normal deliveries and their babies showed no signs of brain defects. However, he stated that the hospital is still monitoring the development of the infants. The other mother aborted her baby in fear of abnormal childbirth.Presently, Brazil is still reeling from the effects of a massive Zika outbreak, which resulted in hundreds of babies being born with microcephaly. The eruption of outbreaks in various countries has caused the World Health Organisation to declare the virus a global health emergency.The WHO even convened emergency meetings to seek an end the spread.
Those steps at least would give some hope of a credible process for approving new developments – something City Hall is unable to achieve without radical reform.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! But the trouble with this idea is that it’s hard to believe that the public would be any better served if it became another function of an already dysfunctional City Hall. Indeed, it could turn into an administrative nightmare for the city because Los Angeles has scores of projects in the planning stages at any one time. As it is, council members continue to act as lords over development in their districts, which makes the role of the Planning Department largely that of a rubber stamp. So when residents feel a project will have dire consequences to their neighborhood, they can’t count on City Hall. Indeed, the HEIR process proposed by Weiss won’t necessarily make it better, just more politicized. This is a town where politicians hold press conferences to announce that trees are getting trimmed and potholes filled and then run off to a campaign fund-raiser to make sure they get re-elected without actually doing anything substantive. A better solution would be for the City Council to respect charter reform and give up its fifteen rights over development, empower the planning bureaucracy to stand up to the elected officials, and do away with political contributions from real estate developers and their agents. Los Angeles’ process for traffic studies and mitigations for new development is a mess – just as city officials want it to be. Many city residents are pushing for an overhaul of the way the city calculates the environmental impact of new developments. That’s the entry point for Jack Weiss, the embattled Westside councilman who wants to become city attorney. Beset by residents of an area afflicted by relentlessly slow traffic caused by overdevelopment without good planning, Weiss has proposed ending the system that allows developers to hire their own consultants to do environmental and traffic impact studies. Instead, the consultants would be hired by the city Planning Department, which would then bill developers for the cost of the studies. Such a change would tend to reduce developers’ control over EIRs, which some critics contend now look more like advocacy documents for the project instead of objective evaluations of environmental effects. For instance, opponents of the Point Vista housing project in San Pedro have taken issue with what they consider outdated data in that project’s traffic study.

Dramatic rescue: The surfers being brought onto the lifeboat this eveningSurfers got into difficulty this evening at Tullan Strand in Bundoran and were being swept out to sea when a member of the public spotted the situation and quickly called the emergency services whilst two other surfers went to his aid.The pagers of the volunteer crew of the Bundoran Lifeboat were set off at 18:05 and by 18:10 the lifeboat was in the water and and proceeded at full speed to the scene. Arriving at Tullan Strand, the three surfers from Dublin were quickly located with the help of RNLI shore crew who had been deployed by land. The lifeboat took all three on board and proceeded back to the lifeboat station.The casualty had taken on a lot of water and had oxygen administered to him on his return to the lifeboat station where a waiting ambulance transferred him to Sligo General Hospital for further observation.Volunteer Crewman Brian Faulkner said: “Once again we are thankful to a member of the public who called the Coast Guard and made the alert.“A lot more people are using the water in these good weather conditions and we’d like to remind everyone to be safe in the knowledge that if they do get into trouble in the water that we are on call 24 hours a day 7 days a week – call 999 or 112 and ask for the Coast Guard if you see anyone in difficulty in the water or on the coast.” DRAMATIC MOMENT BUNDORAN RNLI RESCUED DUBLIN SURFERS OFF DONEGAL COAST was last modified: August 9th, 2014 by John2Share 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:bundoranDublin surfersrescueRNLI
An Inishowen man has been ordered to pay €300 to an animal charity after local residents complained to Gardaí about ‘pit bull’ type dogs roaming around a housing estate without muzzles or chains.Martin O’Connor, of 34 Donagh Park, Carndonagh, was charged with having an uncontrolled dog at Donagh Park on September 23, 2018, when he appeared before a special sitting of Buncrana District Court. He was also charged with having no muzzle for the dog, no identification collar and no chain on the dog at the same location.Defence solicitor for Mr. O’Connor, Philip White, said his client accepted the charges, although he claimed it was a case of ‘who let the dogs out’.Garda Conor Mulkerrins told the court that he received a report about two ‘pit bull type dogs’ roaming around the Donagh Park housing estate and causing concern to residents.He said he went to the estate at 12.05pm on September 23, 2018, and there were two dogs loose in the estate. He said he believed they were a Staffordshire Bull Terrier breed.“The bitch was brown and white and the male dog was white,” Gda. Mulkerrins said.“They were unsupervised and had no muzzle on them. Residents informed me this was an ongoing issue within the estate with the dogs and children were afraid to play out in the estate.”Gda. Mulkerrins said he returned the dogs to number 34 Donagh Park after being informed that is where they lived.“The side gate of number 34 was open and there was no one home,” he said.“There was a compound built behind the house for the dogs but it was unlocked.“There did seem to be a lot of money put into building the structure but the gate was a bit flimsy – it could have been opened but also the dogs are big dogs they could have opened it themselves,” Gda. Mulkerrins surmised.He said nature and look of the dogs made people feel understandably uneasy, however he said he had no problems with them.“I used to own big dogs so I would be used to them,” he said.“When I put the dogs back into the house they just followed me. There was no problem with them.”Solicitor White said when Mr. O’Connor and his partner left the home that day the dogs had been locked into the compound. He said there had been complaints from residents about dogs barking.“When he left the dogs were secured and the compound was kept contained,” Mr. white said.“Mr. O’Connor believes someone let them out because of the complaints and then called the gardaí. He has since put a padlock on the compound so only he can let them free.“For us, it is a case of who let the dogs out?”Mr. White said Mr. O’Connor no longer lives at the property and has since moved to Derry, with the dogs. He said he works as roofer and has always kept and cared for animals.“They’re always leashed and muzzled when they are out and in all usual circumstances.”Judge Paul Kelly told Mr. O’Connor that he hopes he had learned from this experience in court.“Dog owners frequently have a different outlook on their dogs than the rest of the world,” said Judge Kelly.“These are potentially very dangerous animals and could be very frightening to other people, especially children.”Mr. O’Connor said he had a child himself and there was no issue with his pets.However Judge Kelly said the dogs could lose control easily.“They might be placid and docile creatures with you and your child but what if someone does the wrong thing in the housing estate, they lose control and the next thing a child is left with half its face falling off,” said Judge Kelly.“We’ve seen it happen too many times.”Judge Kelly ordered Mr. O’Connor to pay €300 to animal charity the ISPCA by November 19. He said he would strike out the charges against Mr. O’Connor on this occasion if the receipt was produced.Judge warns dog owner – “A child can be left with half its face hanging off” was last modified: October 9th, 2019 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:CarndonaghcourtDOGfinedMartin O’Connormuzzle
