“It’s amazing to debut and mark in the first one you have”

first_imgBig debut: “Debuting first and scoring this goal is a dream.”How was the time to leave: “The mister had decided to support me, told me to go out and try to score something that thank God I have done” The player had been in the field for a very short time, since he had entered in the 87th minute of the match, to end up scoring the goal of his team’s victory two minutes after being on the field. The goal: “I have seen the opportunity to enter the space, it is true that Manu has given me a great pass and I have seen the option of finishing off the door. The truth is that when I have seen the option I have decided to hit it hard and I have closed my eyes in the beating, and when I have opened them I have seen the ball inside. ”Quarry Club: “I know that I am in a club that is committed to the people of the quarry, I am in the third team, but I have always had the support and confidence of the coach.”To follow the same: “My thing is to work and wait for my chance, so that’s my idea right now.”last_img read more

New generators for Anna Regina, Bartica

first_imgIn an effort to improve its delivery of service in 2018, the Guyana Power and Light (GPL) will be commissioning two new generators at Anna Regina in Region Two and at Bartica in Region Seven early in the New Year.Acting GPL CEO, Renford HomerGPL acting Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Renford Homer said new generators will be commissioned in Bartica and Anna Regina early next year, and new generations will also be commissioned in Canefield and East Bank Berbice (EBD) around September of 2018.“Even though we have received engines for Anna Regina and we expect to have engines for Bartica during the month of January, and we have started preparatory works at those locations, we will not be able to do that before the end of the year. But we have made provision, as far as generation is concerned, to again offer some comfort…to Barticians and some Essequibians along the coast,” he is quoted by the Department of Public Information as saying.Back in 2016, Bartica and Anna Regina had endured long episodes of power outage because multiple generators there had broken down unexpectedly. As a result, GPL had announced that four 1.7 MW generators were to be purchased – three for Anna Regina and one for Bartica. The Bartica and Anna Regina stations are managed exclusively by GPL.last_img read more

Schumacher mates earn top spots

first_img“To have a race car that goes down the race track four times, with the slowest of those passes being a 4.75, feels so good I can’t even describe it,” Scelzi said. “I don’t want to jinx myself, but usually when you go through qualifying like that you tend to have good Sundays. The exciting thing is we’re really not even going for low elapsed time, we’re just trying to get down the track each run.” Both men admitted they were caught up in the Funny Car drama involving John and Ashley Force. “Days like today make you stand up and watch,” Schumacher said. “I’m still a fan at heart and it was fun to watch every pass out there, especially in that last round. “I tell everyone that I’m just a big a fan of this stuff as they are. I really am. If you didn’t like watching that last session, I guess you don’t like drag racing.” CLASS IN SESSION Thanks to Joy Linehan’s second-grade class from Heritage Elementary in Phelan, word is out that Jack and Jenna Beckman are expecting their first child next month. The class, on a field trip to Pomona Raceway on Friday, gained the information during a question-and-answer session. Linehan, a sportsman drag racer, had asked the 18 students to prepare questions for the Beckmans, but the first was totally unscripted. “What a wonderful group,” said Beckman, who drives a Dodge for Don Schumacher Racing. “I tell you, you can’t mess up an interview with a second-grader. They’re curious, they’re great with the questions. They had some fairly technical ones, but they’re usually pretty easy to answer. “The kids had never been to a drag race. They knew their teacher raced and coming out here and seeing all the big cars I think made their teacher 10 feet taller in their eyes. So, it was a really neat experience.” Jack Beckman, a cancer survivor, said the pregnancy was a big surprise to the couple. “We don’t want to know if it’s a boy or a girl,” he said. “After going through the chemo I don’t care. I just want a healthy child.” BACK IN BUSINESS Jerry Toliver has done it once again. The Funny Car driver who introduced Mad magazine, World Wrestling Entertainment and Schick’s into drag racing, unveiled another first-time sponsor, Rockstar Energy Drink, for his return to the class after a two-year layoff. He hopes to have his Toyota on tour by March in Gainesville, Fla. Additionally, Toliver announced veteran tuner Dale Armstrong will serve as team manager/crew chief. “He’s been a mentor of mine,” Toliver said of Armstrong, who won five championships with Kenny Bernstein in the class. “He has given me a lot of confidence.” MANDELLA ELIMINATED Upland’s Tony Mandella was handed an early exit from the Winternationals. In his first start of the year, the 21-year-old was eliminated by Bernie Cunningham in round one of Stock eliminations. “He had a perfect light against me,” Mandella said, meaning that Cunningham left the starting line with a .000-second delay after seeing green. “When you get a perfect light, it’s one-sided from there.” Cunningham, whom Mandella called “a good friend,” was a tough draw in the first round. The 48-year-old Riverside resident is a nine-time NHRA national event champion for Valvoline Racing. Staff Writer J.P.

When both finished atop the Top Fuel dragster and Funny Car fields, respectively, the goal was achieved. Schumacher won his fifth No.1 at Pomona Raceway, and third in the Winternationals, with a run of 4.472 seconds at 331.36 mph. Scelzi saved the best for last, vaulting to the top Saturday with a pass of 4.692 at 333.49 on his fourth and final qualifying run. “Running four passes in a row like that is more impressive to me than being No. 1 qualifier,” said Schumacher, the U.S.Army-sponsored driver and the three-time defending champion. “We’ve had great moments here and we’d like to have another one tomorrow. It means a lot to leave the first race of the year with a win. “I’m already nervous about the first round; you can’t take anybody lightly.” Schumacher will face Joe Hartley, whose qualifying time of 4.795 made it the quickest Top Fuel field ever. “Our car is struggling down the track, a little sluggish,” Schumacher said. “It’s still moving around.” As opposed to Scelzi’s Dodge, which is just moving. center_img POMONA – For Tony Schumacher and Gary Scelzi, teammates for Don Schumacher Racing, consistency was the goal during qualifying for the NHRA Winternationals.

Dodgers icon is still looking for some respect

first_imgThe much-gossiped-about sex allegation, in the book chapter with his purported response when Gibson asks “what you’re looking for,” weigh heavily on a grandfather worried about his family’s feelings even as he suppresses a fight-back instinct in the hope the story will die away. His legs hurt, from a nerve in his back and maybe because of his weight, which is why the one-time Brooklyn pitcher who will turn 80 Sept. 22 called a spring-training-long pause in his perpetual speaker’s tour. But at his emotional home, in the world of baseball and the Dodgertown complex he’s been coming to since 1949, he seems to feel as fulfilled as he’s been in the 10-plus years since he managed. Amazing how good a proud man can feel when he works with people who talk and listen to him. It wasn’t always this way as Lasorda went from manager to general manager to vice president to his current position – third on the front-office roster below Frank and Jamie McCourt – as “special advisor to the chairman”; as the ownership changed hands from Peter O’Malley to the Fox Group to the McCourts; as GM’s office spun from Kevin Malone to Dan Evans to Paul DePodesta to Ned Colletti. On a sunny Wednesday, he drove and talked, telling the rare Lasorda story that lacks a punch line. “When I retired (in 1996),” Lasorda said, “Peter O’Malley told everybody, ‘He’s going to be able to help each of you, in all departments. But I don’t want you to overload him.’ That was the thing: They were going to utilize my expertise. Then a new regime came in, and they never wanted to utilize my expertise. They never asked me about players or anything like that. I always felt that’s not my problem, that’s their problem. I’m here to help, and if they don’t (want it), fine. “Then McCourt came in. When he was in process of getting the club, he said he wanted to see me. I flew to Boston, and I’ll never forget it – I froze my ass off. He said, ‘If I get the club, I want you.’ I said, ‘Frank, you got me.’ Well, he brought this feeling back to me. He talked to me, and he listened to me. “Bob Daly was here five years (running the Dodgers for Fox), and never once did he ask me about a ballplayer. And listen to this: Prior to that I must have had lunch with him 20 times, and he asked me about every ballplayer you can think of. So when he came in (as owner), I thought, ‘This guy’s going to lean on me.’ (The GMs) were nice to me, but they didn’t take me as I wanted to be. “I don’t want to be hanging around here just because of who I am. I want to be here because I can help and I know the game and I work at it and I go see the minor leaguers. . . . It means an awful lot to me.” Lasorda stopped the golf cart at a field where pitchers took batting practice, called over Chad Billingsley and gave the 22-year-old his standard speech about how “talent that is used develops – talent that isn’t used wastes away.” Driving away, he turned the principle to his own post-managing career. “I have the ability to help,” Lasorda said. “I don’t want to see that waste away.” Lasorda’s immediate successors in the dugout, such as Bill Russell, failed to see how they could show him the respect he craved without allowing him to run a shadow managership. Jim Tracy figured it out. Lasorda thanks the McCourts, GM Ned Colletti, assistant GM for scouting Logan White and manager Grady Little for making him feel welcome again. He recounted a conversation with Colletti during the Dodgers’ winter promotional caravan. “Ned called me aside and said, ‘I went you in the meetings, I want your advice,’ ” Lasorda said. “I went home and said, ‘Jo (his wife), he made me feel great today.’ “ White says Lasorda has been “like the father I didn’t have.” White’s dad died when he was a kid. “He’s helped me with how to handle things, scouting or handling personnel,” said White, who values Lasorda’s advocacy for the organization’s scouts and his role the famous voice in congratulatory phone calls to draftees and their parents. “He’s been huge in signing players.” White added: “I don’t want to tout myself, but I think I was smart enough to know he’s a resource. Why wouldn’t you?” Maybe the Babydol Gibson headlines were sent from out of the blue to force us to consider the complexities behind the cartoon image of Santa Claus Tommy. He’s still boisterous but can be seen nodding off as he watches games. One thing the McCourt regime has done for him is to keep an employee with Lasorda in every public moment. He’s a Hall of Famer (pleased to be told this week he’s the only Hall of Fame manager who was a pitcher), yet he hungers for the approval of the less-decorated members of the front office. Asked why, he said, “That is something I don’t know.” And he’s fiercely protective of his reputation, even though it’s probably damaged less than he thinks by the Babydol Gibson claim. In the hour or so I was with him Wednesday, none of the dozens of fans he encountered made any mention of that tempest. I asked if he’d be satisfied if people said: He may or may not have done it. Nobody ever said he was a saint. It’s a private matter for him and his family. Leave Tommy alone. “I don’t want them to say that,” Lasorda said. “I want them to say, ‘I know Tommy, and he wouldn’t do that.’ “ Indeed, he said he’s happy in his work again. Maybe this isn’t worth writing a book about, but amid last week’s tumult it’s worth his fans knowing that he seems to have attained the most important thing he’s been looking for. “When I left (managing), this was the way it was supposed to be,” Tom Lasorda said. “I don’t know what word I can use. (Frank McCourt) gave me my credibility back.” Kevin Modesti is a columnist for the L.A. Daily News, a sister paper of the Press-Telegram. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Put that in your dirty book, Babydol. “Respect, that’s a good word (for it),” Lasorda said one morning this week, describing his quest of the past decade. Lasorda spoke while steering a golf cart among the practice diamonds and gathering spots of Dodgertown, braking only about 400 times during our ride-along interview to sign autographs, pose for pictures, greet old friends, coo to little babies and exhort young ballplayers. I’d hopped aboard to find out how the Dodgers’ Hall of Fame ex-manager and eternal icon is doing since last week, when he was forced to deny the nasty innuendo in a kiss (and more)-and-tell memoir by self-described Hollywood Super Madam Jody “Babydol” Gibson.

Parents of Central students request funding for new school building

first_imgThe School Board was receptive of Parson’s comments, and thanked the parents of the school for organizing this.“We’ve been trying on many fronts, and continue to do that,” said Trustee Jaret Thompson.The biggest funding announcement recently from the Ministry of Education, regarding this district, was the announcement of a brand-new school. “We are somewhat reassured that the school board trustees consider Central school safe, but we are still waiting for recent inspection information to confirm that.”Ecole Central School is over 70 years old, and the staff and students have been in what Parsons calls a ‘decade-long state of limbo’ waiting for the Ministry of Education to develop a plan for a replacement school — which has topped the Capital Budget of the School District each year recently.“It stands to reason, it would not be number one if the condition of the school didn’t warrant it.”In this district, other elementary schools have received funding for upgrades, and Parsons acknowledges the school’s current building isn’t a practical choice to receives millions of dollars worth of upgrades.Advertisement FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — Frustrated parents and guardians of Ecole Central School students sent the School District 60 Board of Trustees 101 signed letters in total, regarding the state of the school’s aged building.Their request is for the Provincial government to allocate funds for a new school to be built — sooner rather than later.The school’s PAC president, Sarah Parsons, presented the message to the board on Monday night.- Advertisement -“As you are well aware, there are a number of significant issues regarding the building and school site,” she started, and began to list the faults of the current school’s building.She says the top floor of the school is not wheelchair accessible, the basement floods, the roof leaks, it has poor insulation and overheats, the gym floor is buckled, the electrical system is ‘overloaded, outdated and inadequate,’ has improper drainage, and the school likely contains asbestos that could be harmful.“Obviously these issues could have serious impacts on the health and safety of our students, teachers and staff,” she said.Advertisementlast_img read more

Exclusive – Manchester United will NOT win the title next season, claims Redknapp

first_imgLouis van Gaal will not bring inspire Manchester United to Premier League title glory in his debut season, according to QPR boss Harry Redknapp.The new Red Devils manager held his first press conference on Thursday and revealed he would not make any new signings until he had fully assessed his current squad over the next four weeks.The Dutchman wants to win the title in his debut season at Old Trafford but  Redknapp cannot see that happening without ‘four fantastic players’ arriving in addition to the signings of Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera.“Van Gaal’s got a good track record but they need players,” he told the Sports Bar.“He needs to bring four or five players in at least to get them back to where they were under Alex [Ferguson], where they were winning championships because they look well short of that at the moment.“Certainly at this stage you wouldn’t want to bet on them winning the league next year. I wouldn’t see them winning it next year unless he suddenly pull three or four fantastic players out of the hat.”Redknapp pointed to the strength of title rivals, Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal as evidence that United will struggle to immediately reach the top again after David Moyes’ disastrous reign.“I wouldn’t see them being as strong as Chelsea or Man City,” he added. “I think Arsenal have made a great signing [in Alexis Sanchez] so they could get a lot closer next year.“It’s quite open. I would love to see Liverpool have another great season but they’ve lost an incredible player [in Luis Suarez], he’s irreplaceable really.”last_img read more
