Cricket case hearing set for Feb. 2018

first_imgCourt dates have been set for the case involving the Jamaica Cricket Association, Kensington Cricket Club and St Thomas Cricket Association in relation to the staging of this year’s national two-day Senior Cup cricket competition. The dates, which were agreed to by the parties following a preliminary hearing at the Supreme Court yesterday, are February 21 and 22, 2018. St Thomas and Kensington, who filed the court action through their respective president and vice-president, Dennis Gordon and Wavell Hinds, are contending that the format used to stage the Senior Cup, which was recently completed, was unconstitutional. Their claims, according to court documents, are based on a cricket meeting that was held last year between participating cricket clubs and parish associations, who agreed to change the format of this year’s Senior Cup. The format, it is argued, that was agreed on was a two-tiered divisional tournament of eight and 15 teams, respectively. The existing format features a one division tournament of 23 teams. However, according to the JCA, while a cricket meeting was held, it was not an extraordinary general meeting, and after reviewing the two-tier proposal, it was decided, largely based on financial considerations, to stick with the existing format. St Thomas and Kensington, however, are claiming that the meeting was an extraordinary general meeting, and as such the agreements made should have been binding. Also, as part of the lawsuit, Kensington and St Thomas are also claiming loss of revenue totalling one million due their non-participation in this year’s Senior Cup. The Jamaica Defence Force defeated Melbourne CC by four wickets in the final of the competition last weekend.last_img read more

Olunga out to make amends for Stars

first_img0Shares0000Olunga in past trainingNAIROBI, June 25 – After fluffing enormous chances, Harambee Stars forward Michael Olunga will look to make amends when they host Ethiopia in next weekend’s 2016 CHAN qualifier first round return-leg in Nairobi.Stars have a huge task of overturning the 2-0 loss they suffered in the first-leg away to Walia Ibex on Sunday where Olunga was culpable for failing to convert two glorious opportunities in the first 20 minutes of the encounter. Olunga, who played as a lone striker blazed over a Noah Wafula cross with the keeper only to beat before seeing his 21st shot cleared off the line.But the Gor Mahia forward, who attained his second senior team cap, warned Ethiopia to expect a tough match since they will be playing at home.“It’s not hard overturning the deficit because in football anything is possible. Ethiopia utilized their chances and had home advantage but I’m sure we will make them pay like we did with Botswana in the Olympic Games qualifiers where we overturned a 3-0 deficit to draw 4-4on aggregate but got eliminated on the away goal.“Most of us were not used to playing under such huge crowd, the stadium was full to capacity so we had tension and before we realized we were a goal down but it’s a beatable side. We will make  the opportunities we missed count,” the Technical University of Kenya student told Capital Sport.The 21- year-old called on fans to turn up in large numbers, noting that it’s the only way that can motivate them as they seek to send Kenya to her maiden CHAN finals in Rwanda next year.“Ethiopia were boosted by the support from the fans we should do the same and I’m sure we will give them something to smile about.“This time we have a big opportunity to qualify for the finals because it’s every player’s ambition to participate in bigger competition, we want to make history,” the former Thika United and Tusker FC man stated.Bobby Williamson charges need three unanswered goals to advance to the second round where Sudan who were handed a bye awaits.The Scotsman is expected to make changes from the squad that travelled to Bahar with defenders, Harun Shakava, Musa Mohammed (Gor), Dennis Odhiambo (Thika United) as well as Bandari winger David King’atua who all missed the first-leg available for selection.The team will resume residential training after this weekend’s KPL second leg opener to prepare for the match scheduled for next Saturday at Nairobi’s Nyayo National Stadium.Earning ticket to Rwanda will be a major boost for Kenya who are expected to host the 2018 competition.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Miller looking super for super-G

first_imgThough winless this season, Maier is famous for his resilience, bouncing back from spectacular crashes and a near-fatal motorcycle accident in 2001. Switzerland’s Cuche, fourth in Val Gardena, Italy, was the 1998 Olympic silver medalist. Davis wins ruling: Olympic champion Shani Davis has won his grievance against U.S. Speedskating in a dispute over his failure to wear certain sponsor logos on his racing suit. Davis, who won a gold medal in the 1,000 meters and a silver in the 1,500 in the 2006 Turin Games, was awarded compensation equal to four months of the training stipend provided by U.S. Speedskating. The grievance was filed in 2005, and arbitrator Stephen B. Smith’s decision was announced Thursday. Also: As China prepares for the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, attention has turned to the Winter Games. He Zhenliang, the country’s senior International Olympic Committee member, said China should think about making a bid. The earliest possible bid would be for the 2018 Winter Olympics. The 2010 Winter Olympics will be in Vancouver, British Columbia. The 2014 venue will be selected in July, and the candidates are: Pyeongchang, South Korea; Salzburg, Austria; and Sochi, Russia. … A women’s group criticized Italy’s ski team for excluding Daniela Ceccarelli from the world championships less than three months after she gave birth to her first child. The Italy-based group Telefono Rosa said the exclusion was “an attack on a woman for only one reason – maternity.” Ceccarelli, who won the super-G at the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics, had a baby girl on Nov. 16 and returned to the World Cup ski circuit in mid-January. She has entered four World Cup races this season, with her best finish 17th in a super-G in Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy, on Jan. 19. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

He practically is racing at home, and a large crowd of Norwegian fans is expected to make the trip across the Swedish border. “He comes from a history of overall winners,” Miller said. “He’s super-disciplined. He’s strong and he’s big and he skis in five events. He’s the perfect contender. He’s a guy who could easily walk away from here with four or five medals.” Svindal has shown this course suits him, placing third behind Miller and now-retired American Daron Rahlves in the super-G at last season’s World Cup finals. “Of course I have a chance,” Svindal said. Maier is one of the best super-G skiers in history and practically was unbeatable in the discipline from 1997 to 2001. “Right now, my whole setup, my boots and skis are better than they’ve ever been before,” Miller said. “I feel as comfortable to jump on those as I have ever felt, which is super-important in super-G.” But there are a few good reasons Miller might not repeat – Hermann Maier, Aksel Lund Svindal and Didier Cuche. center_img Everything seems to be going Bode Miller’s way as he prepares to defend his super-G title at the World Championships today in Are, Sweden.

Eder fires pale Azzurri into Euro 2016 last 16

first_imgBut the Inter Milan striker had the Italy bench celebrating wildly on the pitch at the Stadium de Toulouse with a well-taken 88th minute strike after running on to Simone Zaza’s header to beat Andreas Eriksson at his far post.Italy, 2-0 winners over Belgium last week, now top Group E with six points, leaving Sweden, who had late claims for a penalty waved away, realistically needing to beat Belgium on Wednesday if they are to have any hope of making it to the knockout phase.After a mediocre display in Sweden’s 1-1 draw with the Republic of Ireland, all eyes were on captain Zlatan Ibrahimovic as the towering striker sought to make his mark by becoming the first man to score in four editions of the competition.But a cautious Italy restricted the former Juventus and Paris Saint Germain striker to few real chances in front of a huge army of yellow-clad Sweden fans.They were given hope after just two minutes when Ibrahimovic rose to meet a high cross, but Giorgio Chiellini cleared with his head.It was one of few real chances for Erik Hamren’s men in a tight first half that saw Italy strikers Pelle and Eder fail to shine on their few real forays up the park.Italy’s formidable three-man defence meant Gianluigi Buffon had little to do until he dived to collect Kim Kallstrom’s curling shot, and the Juventus ‘keeper was happy to see Olsson’s drive whistle past the post soon after.When Daniele De Rossi fouled Ibrahimovic in midfield, the striker got his head to Kallstrom’s 40-yard free kick but he was flagged offside.The Azzurri broke the monotony when Candreva collected Florenzi’s cross-field ball to fire in an inviting cross, but Erik Johansson was quick to intercept.At the other end Sweden edged closer, Sebastian Larsson chesting a long cross into the path of Celta Vigo’s John Guidetti only for the striker to skew wide.Italy started the second half in positive fashion, Pelle controlling Eder’s cutback from a Marco Parolo through ball, but his volley dipped over the crossbar.Parolo did well to control De Rossi’s pass and set up Candreva on the right, but the Lazio man’s drive into the area was collected by Isaksson, who got down quickly to smother moments later after another Candreva delivery.On that occasion, Eder was well out of position but it was Pelle who was replaced on the hour, by Simone Zaza.Minutes later, Florenzi’s high delivery across goal found Candreva at the back post, yet Isaksson again got down low to smother the Lazio man’s low first-time effort.Italian hopes looked to be dying out and the Azzurri breathed a sigh of relief when Ibrahimovic fired over from a yard out at the back post although he was ruled offside.Parolo raised Italian hopes on 82 minutes with a header that came off the woodwork.But it was Eder who rescued Conte’s men with a fine run that took him past the Swedish defence to fire the ball into the net with two minutes to play.0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Italy forward Eder celebrates his goal against Sweden in their Euro 2016 Group E clash in Toulouse on June 17, 2016.TOULOUSE, France, June 17 – Brazil-born striker Eder overcame an otherwise patchy performance to hit a cracking late winner in a 1-0 victory over Sweden that sent Italy into the last 16 of Euro 2016 on Friday.Eder, playing in his first major finals for Italy after being naturalised last year, came close to being substituted by Antonio Conte after a dismal opening half up front alongside Southampton striker Graziano Pelle.last_img read more

City might seek refunds from LAUSD

first_imgThe tension between the city and district over fees and services has been simmering for months. The LAUSD has sued the Department of Water and Power for allegedly overcharging the district $90 million for electricity, and the two agencies have battled over who should pay for streetlights and street widening at new school sites. The LAUSD argues that its voter-approved bond money can be spent only on classrooms, not needed sewers and street improvements. But city leaders have pushed the school district to address community traffic concerns with some funds from the $20 billion in school-construction bonds. The debate takes on a more intense pitch now, as Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is pursuing more power over the school district against the wishes of the LAUSD administration. Reed said while the district now can protect its school-construction bond money from city leaders who might use it for things other than classrooms, he fears that would change under Villaraigosa’s reform plan. “The city would always call the shots,” Reed said. “There would no longer be a healthy competition over agencies; it would simply be the Department of Water and Power and Department of Transportation using our bond funds in ways voters didn’t anticipate.” When asked whether the city should seek reimbursement for city services provided to the district, Mayor’s Office spokeswoman Janelle Erickson said: “The mayor believes we should be expanding our partnership with the school district, not limiting it.” Aside from the power struggle for the LAUSD, observers said public services often overlap and the city will get into tricky territory if it starts charging other government agencies for services. Pepperdine University Associate Professor of Public Policy Michael Shires agreed that $52 million is a lot of money to spend on services, but said it’s the city’s choice and thus its responsibility to pay. “That would be like California deciding it needs to build a nuclear submarine, building a nuclear submarine, and then trying to get the federal government to pay for it,” Shires said. “The city saw a need to fill. If a city chooses not to provide that service anymore, it’s within its discretion to do that.” Councilman Bernard Parks, who heads the City Council’s Budget and Finance Committee, wants the city to get paid for some of the services provided to the district. But, he said, he’s not willing to cut valuable programs – such as after-school programs, free lunches and on-campus gang intervention projects – if the LAUSD won’t chip in. “It’s one of those things we feel compelled to do. It’s a lot of money but I haven’t seen a program yet that we can say, `Yes, this can go away.”‘ According to the report, the city’s engineering, transportation, planning, community development, police, human relations, and water and power departments spend about $109 million per year for LAUSD support services. The LAUSD reimburses the city for about half of those costs, or $56.7 million, primarily for water and power bills and engineering fees to review school building projects. The city’s Recreation and Parks Department didn’t provide cost estimates for its services, but said the district uses city ballfields, gyms and pools. That leaves the city with roughly $52.3 million in unreimbursed services including: About $72,000 in waived engineering fees. About $9 million for crossing guards at busy intersections near schools. Some $3.8 million for maps showing walking routes to school and maintaining school warning signs and school loading zone signs. Nearly $15 million from the city’s general fund for the LA’s BEST after-school program and LA Bridges gang-prevention program. $5.3 million for 36 LAPD officers who respond to incidents at LAUSD campuses (they do other police work as well). $700,000 for booking roughly 2,100 suspects arrested by LAUSD police in the LAPD jail. $610,000 for mediation and conflict resolution training with LAUSD students, parents and teachers following school violence. In the city report, City Administrative Officer Bill Fujioka acknowledged the substantial costs but advised not to push for district reimbursement. Most of the services are part of the city’s core mission and responsibilities, he wrote. Plus, the school district partners with the city and provides its own services to city residents. “Requesting reimbursement for the city’s portion of the partnerships could undermine the cooperative relationship and ultimately result in a diminished level of service,” Fujioka wrote. kerry.cavanaugh@dailynews.com (213) 978-0390160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

It’s our belief that we have bent over backwards to be a good neighbor,” said Kevin Reed, LAUSD general counsel. Recalling City Controller Laura Chick’s high-profile campaign to audit the LAUSD, school board member David Tokofsky suggested that the city send the report and supporting documents to the district for review. “We have data on (the city) overcharging us. If they have data on services … let’s get those documents to our auditors right away,” he said. From crossing guards to conflict resolution training, the city spends more than $52 million a year for services that help the Los Angeles Unified School District, according to a city report released Friday. It’s a big bill, and some City Council members said Friday that they want the LAUSD to reimburse at least some of the expenses. “They need to start offering a hand back to us if they want to find some support around the city,” said Councilman Greig Smith, who requested the report last September after city staffers and resources were sent to help quell violence at local high schools. The violence came at the same time when the school district refused to build more parking or traffic controls at a proposed Granada Hills high school, despite community concern about traffic jams. last_img
