As if spring break wasn’t exciting enough with all the beaches, boats, bikinis and beer, this year’s edition also happened to be one of the most exhilarating in sports.The official start of baseball and golf’s unofficial opening weekend with the Masters gave collegiate sports fans plenty to watch on the couch while recovering from the previous night’s binge — in sweatpants with Aloe Vera and the headache medicine of choice close at hand, of course.And it was truly a magical sporting weekend.While anyone who has had the privilege of walking Augusta National during the Masters will tell you it is a unique and wonderful experience, the fact is that without A) connections that would make Al Capone jealous, B) a bankroll that has you spotting cash to Mark Cuban or C) having no problem with committing armed robbery, the chances of a person getting the opportunity to be in the gallery at the Masters are on par with the Insane Clown Posse winning a Nobel Peace Prize.That’s what makes baseball so great.There is something magical about attending a Major League Baseball game. Not magical in the David Copperfield or Amazing Jonathan sense of the word, but magical like taking a trip to Disney World (so long as you get a picture with Donald and Daisy Duck), except that it costs less.For a total of less than 40 bucks and some minimal transportation, you could’ve seen the entire home opening series if you were in Miami, Atlanta or Arlington, Texas. Heck, if you were around Tampa Bay, Fla., the Devil Rays probably would have paid you to attend.But just because you have a couple of Jacksons in your wallet doesn’t make you prepared to properly take in a MLB contest. Here are some rules to taking in a baseball game:A cap is required apparelMuch like wearing goofy sunglasses at a poker table or a fanny pack (if you’re a middle-aged mom) to a theme park, a baseball cap is an absolute must at the ballpark. First off, you should want one anyway, either to root for the home team, block out the sun, fan yourself off or in the case of emergency, use it as a glove for catching foul or home run balls.Secondly, the cap is as much a part of baseball as the spitball and adjusting one’s crotch protection, being a key part of the national anthem (“Please remove your caps…”) and the late-inning rally, as you can’t don the rally cap if you don’t have a cap to begin with.Don’t want to wear a cap for fear of ruining your hairdo? Two words: Oscar Gamble.Peanuts or Cracker Jacks are mandatoryIt’s in “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” and is thus mandatory. Plus they go well with certain beverages, which are also a key part of baseball, segueing perfectly into…Heckle like there’s no tomorrowNo matter where your seats are, it is unlikely any opposing player will really be able to hear anything you say. In truth, heckling is meant more for entertainment for all those fans within earshot of you, plus it’s fun.Getting a whole section to start slow-chanting Hideo Nomo’s name is more of a blast than throwing water balloons off a 20-story apartment building.Try to be creative: A good example would be accusing the portly Dmitri Young of eating the AFLAC trivia duck.This is where the cold beverages can really help out. Just remember the best zingers are delivered sans vulgarities, since there are likely a bunch of little kids around. Speaking of which…Don’t kick the kidsBaseball is great for a lot of reasons. It’s spectacular because it is such a conversational game, with plenty of time to talk between pitches. It’s leisurely, not needing the active fan noise and participation from fans at all times like football and basketball (heckling not included of course) and generally is pretty calming.All of this makes it really easy for children with attention spans shorter than Brad Lidge’s leash to become the most irritating aspect of any trip to the stadium.While punting a 4-year-old might seem like a good idea, in the end it will ruin your baseball journey more than it will help, what with the ejections, lawsuits and probable jail time involved.Instead, if a child around you is losing his focus and eating up your patience, suggest some things his dad might get him.Within a half-inning, that father and son combo will be gone, at least for the short-term.While these are all important rules to doing a baseball game right, there is one rule that must be followed above all others:Boo Barry Bonds.Dave McGrath is a senior majoring in English and journalism. He witnessed Miguel Cabrera, Dontrelle Willis and Co. dominate at Dolphin Stadium over spring break (much like they are doing to the Brewers Monday). If you have a rule you’d like to add, you can reach Dave at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Two years removed from earning Frozen Four Most Outstanding Player honors and a year after winning her second consecutive national championship, University of Wisconsin goalie Jessie Vetter will finally carry the bulk of the load as the Badger net-minder this season, according to head coach Mark Johnson.”I think she’s in a position right now to carry the load a little bit here in the early part of the season,” Johnson said. “We’re going to ask her to do that.”As a freshman in the 2005-06 season, Vetter didn’t emerge as the top goalie until late in the season and last year she split time with senior Christine Dufour. Now though, only sophomore Alannah McCready, who got her first career start Saturday against Union, poses a threat to Vetter’s playing time.”She’s something that as a coach you feel very confident with, and she’s a big part of why we won two championships,” Johnson said of Vetter, an alternate captain. “She’s certainly going to be a big part of our success this year.”Vetter, in just two seasons as a Badger, has certainly played well enough to be trusted with the load. Last season while splitting time with Dufour, she recorded a laundry list of accolades including being named a first-team All-American, leading the nation in goals against average and posting the longest shutout streak in collegiate hockey history at 448 minutes and 32 seconds.Emily Morris provides leadership as captainThe loss of last season’s seniors, including Dufour, Sara Bauer and captain Bobbi-Jo Slusar, has left the Badgers waiting for a new group of leaders to emerge.”Obviously, some of the players we lost, not only on the ice, but away from the rink, were important to our success for a couple of years,” Johnson said. “But the fun part of our business too is to watch kids develop, watch them mature, watch them take leadership positions as they grow in their stature and as they become juniors and seniors.”Johnson feels confident that in this year’s captain, Emily Morris, a former linemate of Slusar, the team has a strong and capable leader. “With Emily Morris this year as our captain, I’m very confident that she’ll do a good job for us away from the rink and off the ice with our players,” Johnson said. “She comes from a hockey background. Not only is she a very nice kid, but she’s a good player for us. So that gives you a little bit of ease, but every year is different, who’s going to step forward, who’s going to be your leaders. That just takes time.”Morris, one of three seniors on the roster along with Jinelle Zaugg and Mikka Nordby, didn’t score last season, but tallied nine assists while helping to anchor one of the nation’s best defenses.Success won’t change approachIn unchartered territory as the reigning back-to-back national champions, Wisconsin will try and enter the season with the same mindset that has served the team so well the past two seasons.”The approach is no different than it is any other year, the goal is certainly the same,” Johnson said.So far the approach has worked well as the Badgers notched 5-0 and 11-0 wins in the season’s opening series.”The things we talked about this past weekend with a young team is trying to create work habits, establishing those work habits early in the season, and then that ability to compete every night,” Johnson said. “If we don’t compete every night, the way the parity has come within our league the last couple of years, you’re not going to win. So you have to compete hard, irrelevant of who you’re playing.”That’s not to say that the Badgers aren’t aware of the challenges that success brings.”From a coaching standpoint, the bull’s-eye last year was certainly on the chest,” Johnson said. “Now I think it’s on the back too, so they’ve got it coming from both sides.”

Given the experiences of many in our country, the answer to that question is strongly in the affirmation, meaning, yes.Remember how the President had to fire the top management at the Liberia Water and Sewer Corporation little over two years ago? Why? The main water supply in White Plains, Montserrado County, was left without electricity and the city was without water for weeks. Yet, some LWSC staff members were selling their own water from trucks roaming the streets of Monrovia! How corrupt and unpatriotic can one be!Depriving their own people of water that these officials were paid to supply, not with their own equipment and resources, but those bought by government with hard earned taxpayers’ money.The President was thankfully DECISIVE in moving against these heartless and unscrupulous recreants and replacing them with honest, committed and well-meaning people.But what caused us to make this woeful recollection? A not-too-different situation is pertaining at another critical parastatal–the Liberia Electricity Corporation (LEC). Lands, Mines and Energy Minister Patrick Sendolo recently issued a stern warning to LEC workers, who cause unnecessary delays in connecting customers. The Minister said he was tired of hearing complaint after complaint from customers yearning for electrical connections but experiencing delay after delay that they cannot understand.Well, here is the problem. We have first-hand experience with LEC people who demanded money under the table before they could proceed with connections. Without that, there would be delay after delay, backed by one excuse after another and totally NO action until . . . We have heard similar stories from many Ministries, including the Ministry of Finance, where staff members would look endlessly for documents they cannot find until . . .Such people are patently anti-development. There are people who have complained that they are unable to pay their taxes without “scratching” some staff member’s back, or responding to their hungry cry because they complain “Empty bag can’t stand.”Are such GOL employees committed to their jobs, to their Ministries or Agencies and to the development of their country? The answer, obviously, is a resounding NO!Then how do we build a country?Minister Sendolo has a lot more to do to get LEC employees to be faithful to their jobs. Like all other Ministers and Agency Heads, at least those who are wholly committed to public service, he has to take decisive action and set examples. But more than that, he, and all other Ministers like him, need to develop a system of whistle blowers and seriously encourage them to be uncompromising in their vigilance.Minister Sendolo must also know that there are many private businesspeople, including Lebanese and Indians, who are peddling electric power around. Unconfirmed sources have long suspected that the “delay in connections” which the Minister is lamenting, may be due to kickbacks which certain government functionaries receive from these electricity peddlers.This situation makes one weep for Liberia–a country full of people who do not love their country but want to find every means possible to milk her for personal gain and deny, retard and frustrate and undermine any development effort their own government is trying to undertake.The time has come for government to start spying on her own employees if ever Liberia is to move forward.But can government find honest brokers– honest spies–or will she end up in a vicious circle of corruption?We think, however, that it is worth the try–empowering people to check on their mates.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
The management of the Liberia Electricity Corporation (LEC) over the weekend honored the former Secretary-General of the West African Power Pool (WAPP), Amadou Diallo, for his dedicated role played at the corporation during his tenure.Prior to the end of his tenure, Mr. Diallo represented WAPP in Liberia and was assigned with the LEC to ensure that countries connected to the project were fully electrified.Joseph T. Mayah, LEC Deputy Chief Executive Officer, lauded Mr. Diallo, describing his tenure at the corporation as “praise worthy” since he was always available to listen to the plight of employees and advised them appropriately.The honoring ceremony was held at a resort in Monrovia on August 7.He assured Mr. Diallo that his good work at the corporation would always be remembered and appreciated by the people of Liberia.For his part, Mr. Diallo applauded the LEC Management for providing him the opportunity to work with them.He said LEC has been cooperative, ensuring that the dream to connect Liberia to the rest of the WAPP network to a single grid was realized.Mr. Diallo stated that with the help of LEC, the WAPP was energized as they handled problems related to the running of wires and other electric work in the country.“I’m so honored for this appreciation, and therefore, I remain grateful as you can see through my deepest appreciation to the LEC Management,” Mr. Diallo said.The program was climaxed with a gowning ceremony as well as the naming of Mr. Diallo as Mr. Tamba Diallo.Among those who attended the ceremony were Guinea’s Ambassador to Liberia Alhaji Abdullah Doré, Mr. Curtis Lavalle, Acting CEO of LEC, etc.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
As the clock winds down to the annual Mashramani float parade, the Social Cohesion Ministry is confident about receiving a high number of entries for the competition.Mashramani Committee Coordinator Andrew Tyndall on Wednesday expressed hope that the number of Mash bands will be high despite the low number of entries received so far.“We would have received 11 registration forms; also there are a number of agencies and private companies who would have been calling in for information of how they could be a part of the process,” he stated.When questioned about the small number of entries, Tyndall explained that this amount was common around this time of the Mash season. “Around this time this is what registration normally looks like, probably next week heading up to the 16th, a lot of companies will bring in their registration forms,” he explained.To date, the calendar of Mashramani activities is said to be “running smoothly”, with a number of major events such as the Soca Monarch, Calypso, Chutney, Panorama and the Children’s Mashramani competitions still to be completed. These events are all a prelude to the grand Mashramani float parade that will be held on February 23.This year, the float parade will have a new route, which will see revellers beginning on Thomas Lands, west of Albert Street, then proceeding on to the first judging point at the National Park, then the parade will proceed east along Thomas Lands, south into Vlissengen Road, then into D’Urban Park using the Vlissengen and Hadfield Streets entrance.
– 1 more body, another survivor discovered from 1st pirate attack– 6 suspects nabbed offshore SurinameAlmost one week after sea bandits attacked a 20-member crew, mostly Guyanese, in four boats off the coast of Suriname, there was another attack Wednesday night, in which a boat captain was killed and his crew members are missing.Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo with the relatives of the missing fishermen on ThursdayWhile details surrounding this incident remain sketchy, reports from Paramaribo reveal that this most recent incident occurred off the Coast of Matapica in the Surinamese waters. Secretary of the Visserscollectief (a fishermen’s association), Mark Lall, confirmed that the captain of the fishing vessel was killed while his crew members could not be accounted for.Nevertheless, he disclosed that the local authorities, including the Coast Guard and Police, along with several fishermen, had ventured out to the area to investigate. “If we are on the spot, we hope to get more clarity,” Lall told local media operatives. However, there have been no further details about the attack off the Matapica Coast.This most recent attack comes as Dutch authorities continue the search for the missing fishermen from last weekend’s horrific attack. Of the 16 fishermen who were initially reported missing, two have since been accounted for. One of them managed to survive five days after the incident while being injured, but only the body of the other fisherman was recovered.According to a statement from the Ministry of Justice and Police in Suriname, the fifth survivor of last weekend’s pirate attack near the Wia Wia Bank in the Atlantic Ocean was spotted on Thursday morning at Braamspunt by a passing fishing boat. The man has been identified as Cherwin Lovell, a Guyanese national.Survivor Cherwin Lovell“The victim indicated that he had walked through the marsh for five days in search of help, and arrived at Braamspunt this morning at 10.00 am. The man, who (has) injuries to his body, was caught by fishermen in the area,” the Ministry said.The statement went on to detail that the fishermen assisted the piracy victim and informed the Maritime Police, who later picked up the injured. He was transferred to Leonsberg, from where he was transported to the Academic Hospital for medical treatment.The Secretary of the Visserscollectief had said on Thursday that many details surrounding the man’s survival were unknown at the time. Guyana Times understands that apart from a possible broken arm and a few lacerations about his body, the man is recuperating well.These six suspects, believed to be Guyanese, were nabbed offshore SurinameMeanwhile, the hunt is on for the other missing men. On Wednesday, the search party had spotted three bodies but only one was recovered. It was explained that the rescuers had to abandon the operation to retrieve the two other bodies because of the thick mud. However, it was reported that they returned to the area the following day, but there has since been no further update.Among those Guyanese who are missing from last weekend’s incident are: Ramesh Sanchara; Ganesh Persaud, Vickey Persaud, Glenroy Jones, Bharat Heralall, Ralph Anthony, Randy Burnette and Tiaknauth Mohabir.Meanwhile, six persons — all believed to be Guyanese — are now in custody and are being grilled in connection with the attack on Saturday. One was nabbed by fishermen on Thursday morning and handed over to the Police, while the five others were apprehended later in the day.Guyana Times was told by some fisher folks on the Corentyne in Berbice, Region Six, that last weekend’s attack was a vendetta. Several persons operating out of the Number 66 Fishermen’s Co-op related to this newspaper that the Guyanese fishermen operating in Suriname have a rift amount themselves. This is as a result of the availability and accessibility to licences to operate in the waters of the Dutch-speaking nation.Back in Guyana, for the first time since the incident occurred, President David Granger on Thursday condemned the action, calling the incident a “great massacre” and a “tragedy”. He told reporters that local authorities are working with their Surinamese counterparts to bring the perpetrators to justice.He went on to say that this incident has had an upsetting effect on Government’s anti-piracy efforts, which have been successful of recent. Since last year, there has been only one piracy attack recorded.On the other hand, Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan has said that while Government is concerned over the horrific act, and is getting cooperation from the Surinamese authorities, there is only so much that can be done at this point in time, since the Surinamese officials would first have to do their investigations.Meanwhile, Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo on Thursday afternoon met with the aggrieved families of those fishermen who are missing from last weekend’s attack, which has been described as one of the most horrific piracy attacks in recent history. During the meeting, the families expressed concerns over the lack of support from the Government.
Colin Murray is joined by Perry Groves and Justin Moorhouse to discuss the day’s news, with a twist, and to reflect on Sunday’s World Cup final.
AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa Anita “Look for resale prices to continue rising, but not quite as fast as over the last several years,” said Jim Link, the association’s executive vice president. “Even the slightest increase in inventory, which hit rock bottom last year, will slow the increase in resale prices while giving buyers a little leverage to negotiate.” There were 1,059 active listings at the end of December, a 16.8 percent increase from a year ago. The number represents about a three-month supply at the current rate of sales, but short of the five-month supply or 1,525 listings that would favor neither buyer or seller. “Supply and demand is the major thing,” said Peggy Mueller, president of the association’s Santa Clarita Valley Division. “There is just not that many properties, and Santa Clarita is so close the the San Fernando Valley. It’s the nicest area that have new homes still, and we are just not making any more land.” Real estate sales generated in excess of $2.9 billion for the Santa Clarita Valley economy in 2005, the association said. The figure does not include related services such as escrow, title, inspection or home improvement. A total 3,726 single-family homes closed escrow in 2005, down 3.7 percent from the record 3,869 homes sold in 2004. Condominium sales tallied 1,771, a 4.9 percent increase from the 1,689 sold the year before and the second highest sale on record. SANTA CLARITA – The median price of a Santa Clarita Valley home hit the $600,000 mark in December, capping a year that marked an 18 percent surge in prices in an area that remains one of the county’s “affordable” communities, a monthly real estate survey said Tuesday. The December single-family home median price represented a $5,000 or 0.8 percent increase from the month before and a 15.6 percent jump from the same period a year ago, according to the Southland Regional Association of Realtors. The median condominium price was $389,000 – a 1 percent increase from November and 17.9 percent higher from December 2004. The 2005 median price for both houses and condos held on for a fifth year of double-digit percentage gains. For single-family homes, the median was $564,600 – a 18 percent jump from 2004. The median price for condominiums was $356,242 – a 16.6 percent increase. Just don’t expect this trend to continue into 2006, experts say. Record-high prices and rising interest rates are expected to slow sales in the coming year, though experts believe resale prices will likely continue to rise between 5 percent to 10 percent, slightly ahead of inflation. Mueller, who has sold real estate for 30 years – the last 12 in the Santa Clarita Valley – said the region remains a good value for buyers looking to relocate from the San Fernando Valley. “For what you get, it’s much more reasonable in the valley because you’re getting newer,” she said. “The only big obstacle we have is the traffic.” Eugene Tong, (661) 257-5253 email@example.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
