Chace The Great for Ash Wednesday Trophy

first_imgIT’S holiday racing at Caymanas Park today, with the well-supported nine-race programme featuring the Ash Wednesday Trophy over 1300 metres to be contested by 14 starters.Also on the card is the annual renewal of the $250,000 – $210,000 claiming race over 1200 metres for the Clifford Stewart Memorial Cup. Twelve horses have been declared, including top contenders BARS OF GOLD, CHEERS, ROYAL GIRL, MONEY MOVE and LIGHT BRIGADE, who bids for his fourth consecutive win and could well start favourite.The main focus, however, is on the Ash Wednesday Trophy, which should see the likes of CHACE THE GREAT, PROLIFIC PRINCESS, UNCLE TAF, TALENTED TONY K, down-in-class UPPA TUNE and champion two-year-old SOTOMAYOR making his seasonal debut in preparation for the April 8 2000 Guineas, for which he is the winter book favourite.All of the above should ensure a competitive race, especially with much speed present in TALENTED TONY K, UPPA TUNE and CHACE THE GREAT.I am expecting the Dwight Chen-trained 4-y-o colt CHACE THE GREAT to prove strongest entering the straight from his convenient mark of 53.0kg and former champion jockey Wesley Henry aboard.START FAVOURITEOver this trip, the speedy son of Greatness – Our Miss Ruth should not only start favourite, but justify the support in much the same way he did when notching his last win over the distance on September 25, slamming BERRANCA and BLUE DIXIE in the fairly good time of 1:18.2.Since then, CHACE THE GREAT has run some useful races for the most part. True, he was installed a howling 1-2 favourite to win over the straight-five course on February 11, but could only manage fourth, beaten 13/4 lengths by the much-improved KING D. He was badly drawn on the far side that day, however, and was not really disgraced considering that he drifted out badly after coming on to the main track.Having trained well and the distance now ideal, CHACE THE GREAT should stave off the late-closing grey colt SOTOMAYOR, who will not find the distance too short after winning his last race over a mile, the $4.25-million SVL Jamaica 2-Y-O Stakes, on Boxing Day. CHACE THE GREAT, however, appears that much fitter and is tipped to resume winning ways.BARS OF GOLD, who won decisively over 1200 metres last time out, should give his in-form trainer Gregory Forsyth and jockey Jevanne Erwin yet another winner in the Clifford Stewart Memorial Cup, while other firm fancies are FRANKENSTORM in the opening race over the straight, FEARLESS SAMURAI in the third, and BIG BLACK NATION to stave off PROUD PRESIDENT and FLYING MACHINE in the closing race over 1300 metres.last_img read more

Closure of Chronicle ‘Illegal”, Say WAJA, Welcomes PUL Suit

first_imgThe West African Journalists Association (WAJA) has welcomed the petition filed by the Press Union of Liberia to the Supreme Court of Liberia to reverse the arbitrary closure of the National Chronicle Newspaper.WAJA says it is disappointed that the Liberian Government has insisted on the illegal closure of the Chronicle Newspaper in an environment of heightened awareness for the rule of law.WAJA president Peter Quaqua said it is unfortunate that the Liberian government would choose the path of censoring the media while dealing with crippling Ebola crisis. The group calls on the Supreme Court to relieve the government of any additional embarrassment by ordering the reopening of the newspaper.The PUL last Thursday  petitioned the Supreme Court of Liberia for a writ of prohibition against the closure of the newspaper.On August 14, this year, heavily armed police officers invaded the premises of the National Chronicle Newspaper in Monrovia, shut it down and arrested two members of its staff who were later released.The newspaper has since been closed while its Publisher, Philipbert Brown, has been subjected to an endless police investigations.Government said it closed down the paper on national security concerns, in reaction to a series of stories linking the country’s Vice President Joseph Boakai to the alleged formation of an interim government to replace the administration of President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf.The Press Union wrote a protest letter to Liberia’s Justice Minister, Christiana  Tah on September 4, 2014, terming the attacks on the media as “bad omen for press freedom and government-media relations.”The Supreme Court Justice in Chambers, Kabineh M. Ja’neh, was scheduled on  Wednesday, September 24, to hold a mandatory conference with the parties at 2:30. But that conference has been postponed to today, Friday, September 26, 2014.According to a WAJA release, no level of emergency is a justification for governments to violate basic human rights.  The organization, therefore,  calls for the reopening of the newspaper.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

CCJ did not have to set specific election date – PPP

first_img…ruling clearly outlines 3-month constitutional timeline for elections…Court may have overestimated integrity of constitutional actorsWhen the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) delivered its ruling on the No-Confidence Motion, they were hopeful that local politicians would act responsibly. But according to the People’s Progressive Party (PPP), the regional court may have been too optimistic.Opposition LeaderBharrat JagdeoIn a statement on Sunday, in which the party called out Trade Unionist Lincoln Lewis for distorting the CCJ rulings, the PPP noted that the regional court overestimated the integrity of Government apologists.In his weekly column, Lewis had claimed that the September 18 deadline for General and Regional Elections emanated from Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo and others, but not the CCJ. The party made it clear that this was not true.“His assertions must be condemned as nothing but a barefaced attempt to mislead. He selectively refers to one sentence from the consequential orders granted by the Caribbean Court of Justice,” the party said in its statement.“Had Lincoln Lewis read the consequential orders, issued by the Court on July 12, 2019, in totality, he would have been clear on what is now the constitutionally mandated deadline for elections to be held in Guyana.”The party reminded that Article 106 (6) of the Constitution of Guyana mandates that General and Regional Elections are to be held within three months of the passage of a No-Confidence Motion. And the CCJ in its ruling made direct reference to this.“Paragraph six of the CCJ’s consequential orders states that: “Given the passage of the No-Confidence Motion on 21 December 2018, a general election should have been held in Guyana by 21 March 2019,” the party noted.“Further, the CCJ’s consequential orders goes on to add that, “The filing of the courtproceedings in January challenging the validity of the no-confidence vote effectively placed matters on pause, but this Court rendered its decision on 18 June 2019. The CCJ was clear that the clock on the three-month election timeline started on June 18, 2019 – meaning the deadline for elections to be held end on September 18, 2019.”General Secretary of the Guyana Trades Union Congress, Lincoln LewisLack of understandingThe party, therefore, questioned whether political opportunism or a lack of understanding could be behind attempts to confuse the CCJ rulings. The PPP pointed out that even though the regional court did not set a specific date, they pronounced clearly on the timeline within which elections should be held.“On Lincoln Lewis’ point that the Caribbean Court of Justice did not set a date for elections, he seems to miss the point that the Court pronounced on the timeline within which elections must be held.The party would recommend that he reads paragraph five of the CCJ’s consequential orders. It states clearly that… upon the passage of a vote of no confidence, the Article requires the resignation of the Cabinet including the President.”“The Article goes on to state, among other things, that notwithstanding such resignation, the Government shall remain in office and that an election shall be held within three months, or such longer period as the National Assembly shall by resolution supported by not less than two-thirds of the votes of all the elected members of the National Assembly determine.”The party also pointed out that the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) is itself bound by the Constitution and must abide by the constitutional provisions of three months. This is something the party has long criticised GECOM for not doing.“It would seem that the Caribbean Court of Justice overestimated the levels of integrity among the likes of Lincoln Lewis and others when, in paragraph seven of its consequential orders, it said ‘the Court must assume that these bodies and personages will exercise their responsibilities with integrity and in keeping with the unambiguous provisions of theConstitution bearing in mind that the No-Confidence Motion was validly passed as long ago as 21 December 2018,’” the PPP added.This comes even as Government has stated clearly that the President and Cabinet would not be resigning and that the President will not set a date for elections and dissolve Parliament until he is advised by GECOM.This advice may not be long in coming, as newly appointed GECOM Chairperson, retired Justice Claudette Singh has scheduled a meeting with her six Commissioners for August 15 – the day after the High Court rules on the legal challenge against GECOM’s House-to-House Registration.last_img read more

NHL NOTEBOOK Waddell’s head now on block

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.As he did back in 2002 after firing Curt Fraser, the only other coach in Thrashers history, Waddell took over as coach, too, while searching for a suitable replacement. Without more success, and soon, Waddell’s job could be the next one in jeopardy. “Since the day I was hired, my job is on the line,” he said. “You are brought in here to have success. We started building something. I think we have something good going and I still believe that.” That begs the question, will there be any coaching candidate Waddell feels more comfortable with than himself? “Our schedule is a little bit hectic right now,” Waddell said. “There are some days off where I’ll be able to concentrate. On day games my attention has got to be on preparing this team. If I’m going to do it, I have to make sure I do the coaching end of it. “The timetable for me is not as important as making sure I get the right guy for this job.” From news services Don Waddell is back behind the Atlanta Thrashers bench, maybe for a lot more than the 10 games he spent there a few years ago. As the only general manager the Thrashers have known, Waddell has overseen seven seasons of mostly losing hockey. Atlanta reached the playoffs for the first time last spring after winning the Southeast Division, but was gone in a fast four-game sweep at the hands of the New York Rangers. That flameout, filled with curious goaltending decisions, was the beginning of the end for Coach Bob Hartley, who was dismissed this week after the Thrashers got off to an 0-6 start. His first stint as coach produced a 4-5-1 mark. Waddell didn’t rule out staying in the job this time for the remainder of this season. It is an interesting time for the Thrashers in an unsettled Atlanta sports landscape that is still rattled by Falcons quarterback Michael Vick’s legal troubles in a dogfighting scandal and extended down times for the NBA’s Hawks. “We are trying to do what we can to win hockey games,” said Waddell, his team a 5-3 victor over the Rangers on Thursday night in his latest debut. “I just felt we had to do something to get us back on track.” It was 50 years ago Friday that Montreal Canadiens star Maurice “Rocket” Richard became the first player in the 40-year history of the NHL to score 500 goals. Since then, 38 others have accomplished the feat – 14 all with the same franchise like the Rocket. The most recent member of both clubs is Dallas’ Mike Modano, who got there last season. Remembering Rocket Straka injured New York Rangers center Martin Straka broke a finger on his right hand blocking Zdeno Chara’s slap shot in the first period of the game against the Bruins on Saturday in Boston. It is unknown how long he will be out.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!last_img read more

CROOK FRANCOIS: I’M INNOCENT, HONESTLY!

first_imgCROOK FRANCOIS de Dietrich today issued a statement from his secret hideaway – but didn’t say if he would be handing himself into the cops.The on-the-run French fraudstar swindled millions of euros out of investors in a dodgy scam.The UK Financial Services Authority swooped on more than €20M of that cash last year. And the convicted criminal once based in Ballybofey is facing 18 months behind bars for repeated contempt of a Belfast court order for failing to reveal his worldwide assets. A warrant has been issued for his arrest.There’s just one problem – the crook is in hiding!Today he issued a statement via his lawyers in Belfast in which he claimed he was innocent of any dodgy activity….and DISCRIMINATION!!!And he said that nothing was his fault – it was all the fault of the FSA!!! The fraudster said: “In response to continued media speculation surrounding our ongoing dispute with the FSA we now wish to make the following facts known to interested parties.“Our position in relation to this matter has not changed since the charges were first levied against us. We stand firm in strenuously denying the claims of the FSA which have been magnified in various quarters, not least the media.“We are actively pursuing our defence to the allegations, and the negative implications these have had on a number of levels.“We are extremely confident that in due course, the FSA and sections of the media will themselves have many questions to answer.“We are acutely aware that there may be a racial motive behind this entire investigation – an INVESTIGATION ONLY, which has resulted in harassment, defamation of character, libel, slander, innuendo not to mention serious financial hardship for so many. “Far from hiding and refusing to deal with the issues, as portrayed in sections of the media, we are at present actively conducting our own intensive investigations.“This has a twofold strategy. Firstly, we are adamant that we will continue to fight back vigorously against the sanctions imposed by the FSA.“And secondly, we have established our own course of action to commence proceedings against certain journalists, media outlets and others who have inaccurately reported aspects of this case.“We also feel it important to reveal the truth about our relationship with the FSA. Contrary to the image being portrayed via the media, we are not in fact being elusive and uncooperative. “In fact, we would like the public to know that ETIC Solutions, through our team of representatives, have actually made countless attempts to meet with, cooperate with, and even make additional funds available to, the FSA, so that this matter may reach a more rapid conclusion in the best interests of all stakeholders.”The crook went on to make a number of defamatory claims about respected staff at the FSA which donegaldaily.com cannot repeat for legal reasons.He did add: “We conclude by stating to anyone with an interest in this matter, that we will leave absolutely no stone unturned in our own attempts to bring a satisfactory resolution to this entire case.”The fraudster made no mention of his prison sentence.CROOK FRANCOIS: I’M INNOCENT, HONESTLY! was last modified: March 23rd, 2011 by gregShare 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)last_img read more
