I just wish the school board would have put on the replace list, new bleacher for the Middle School track. Those 2x8x12 are so weathered and very easy to fall threw trying to get to the top. Everyone sets on the bottom seats because no hand rails except at each end. A lot of Seniors I seen. I’ll bring my own chair next time. Bleachers are an accident waiting to happen.

Iowa parts ways with strength coach accused of mistreating players based on race

first_imgFerentz has been under scrutiny since the suspension, and he addressed those concerns at a press conference Friday. Ferentz, who took over at Iowa in 1999, is the longest-tenured coach in the FBS.”The biggest question to me is, why the blind spot?” Ferentz said Friday. “And I think every person has a blind spot. I’m sure every leader has a blind spot. The former players were very forthcoming. They were very direct, and just pointed out some things that perhaps gave me a new awareness.”Iowa also has hired a Kansas City law firm to conduct an independent review of issues and allegations relating to racial disparities within the program. Raimond Braithwaite will serve as the interim strength and conditioning coach. Iowa parted ways with strength and conditioning coach Chris Doyle on Monday.Doyle had been accused of mistreating football players at Iowa because of their race. He had been placed on administrative leave on June 6 after several former players shared social media posts detailing alleged mistreatment while playing for the Hawkeyes. Doyle had been an assistant with the Hawkeyes under Kirk Ferentz since 1999.MORE: Clemson’s Dabo Swinney shares message of support for Black Lives Matter protestsAs part of the separation agreement, Doyle will receive 15 months of base salary, which equates to “two separate lump sum payments of $556,249.50,” according to the university. He had been the highest-paid strength coach in the country, making $800,000 a year.He released a statement following the announcement:”Iowa City has been home to our family for 21 years,” Doyle said. “I am grateful Iowa football provided an opportunity to work with incredible players, coaches, and support staff. I have worked diligently to make a positive impact on the lives of student-athletes, support them as they speak out, and look forward to continued growth. I am confident that my record and character will be confirmed in the course of the independent review. The university and I have reached an agreement and it is time to move on from Iowa football. My family and I are looking forward to the next chapter.”last_img read more

In 2017, hosts Uganda did not recover from a day-one loss to Canada in the ICC WCL Division 3  and were relegated to Division four, where they won earlier this year, but after surviving another false start – this time against Malaysia.Wicket-keeper Otwani and bowler Charles Waiswa made sure there was also no repeat of the Uganda-Denmark thriller in Malaysia, where Uganda won by a single run, with the very last ball.After four catches by Otwani that ensured Denmark struggled from the start, bowler Charles Waiswa mopped up the tail-end with figures of four for 25 in 8.4 overs.Uganda’s innings had actually started disastrously, with Roger Mukasa out for a duck. Otwani stabilized the innings, hitting 15 fours in the 86 balls he faced before being caught, 12 shy of a century as Uganda charged towards a 166 target.He had done the damage with a man of the match performance to that point, and by the time he went off, Uganda was only 36 short off their target, at 130-5 in 28 overs.Denmark can be said to be the weakest of the sides Uganda will face in this tournament, but a winning start will give Steve Tikolo’s side the belief they need to match the very best.Up next is the United States, Saturday.  Denmark101000–1.296 All eyes on 2023 World CupThe 2018 ICC World Cricket League Division Three is an international cricket tournament that is currently taking place in Oman between 9 and 19 November 2018.

Company Launches Online Marketplace for Off-Duty Cops in Olympia

first_imgFacebook0Tweet0Pin0Submitted by CopsForHireCopsForHire (CFH) is an online technology platform marketplace that allows individuals and businesses to hire off-duty cops for private and public events. Founded by Seattle-area entrepreneur David Bluhm and retired Pierce County Sheriff’s Deputy Andrew Finley, CFH provides a streamlined solution for law enforcement jurisdictions, the officers who work off-duty and the customers who need police support for their events.Olympia was selected as the location to launch their start-up to take advantage of specific economic growth and hiring opportunities while avoiding the regional traffic challenges impacting the Seattle and Eastside areas. The market for off-duty cops is large and growing. There are approximately 780,000 commissioned law enforcement professionals in the US today and 43 percent of them work off-duty.Presently, requests by businesses and individuals to hire an off-duty cop can be a fragmented and oftentimes frustrating experience. Streamlining this process between law enforcement and the communities they serve will help ease the growing tensions that currently exist. CFH provides a complete end-to-end solution, including detailed reporting, for all participants in the marketplace.The CFH solution is free to law enforcement to use while providing a technology platform to recover the costs to the public of resources used in the act of off-duty details. Recovering resources such as fuel, the use of a vehicle, boat, ATV or even a K-9 all represent good stewardship in terms of having clients pay for the use of these public assets when utilized for their private events. The business model is transaction fee based in exchange for hosting the marketplace and providing a secure process for the posting of jobs, managing law enforcement profiles, handling payments, and ensuring department policies and terms are adhered to.CFH recently completed a Seed and subsequent Friends and Family Series A investment round, and is now currently expanding the team and preparing for an immediate Series A1 growth round.CFH is working today with the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office (TCSO), and plans to go live with the online marketplace in support of their off-duty details in the coming weeks.CFH is hosting an Open House on April 30 from 2:00 – 6:00 PM to officially launch their business and provide live demos of the solution to community leaders, affiliated partners, present and future investors as well as local supporters of their efforts.

Reno relieved to escape relegation

first_imgWESTERN BUREAU:It all looked good when Girvon Brown tapped home from close range to give UWI FC a 60th minute lead against FC Reno in yesterday’s Red Stripe Premier League match at the Frome Sports Complex.Although the university team went on to win 2-1, they failed in their objective to land a semi-final spot.The result was equally bittersweet for UWI and FC Reno, the latter, in particular, because of their struggle to avoid relegation, which neither Rivoli United nor Cavalier SC were able to accomplish.It was palpable relief for Michael Graham, the Reno coach, after news filtered through that Cavalier had lost 0-1 to Tivoli Gardens FC.”I can’t tell you how relieved we are to know we are still in the league. We started as planned in this game, but lost our way after not taking advantage of that missed penalty opportunity,” said Graham.”It was a good enough game for us to win, but we just never got that second goal we wanted so badly. I am still grateful because next season will see us in the league,” added Graham.PENALTY SAVEDReno should have opened the scoring when the usually reliable Rondel Morris had his penalty kicked easily saved by national invitee Amal Knight for UWI in the 40th minute.He would regret missing from the spot as Brown was on hand for a simple tap-in at the 60th minute.Reno were again awarded a penalty, but this time the responsibility fell to Afiba Chambers and he found the equaliser in the 62nd minute.Just as Reno were looking at scoring another to take the game away from UWI, the visitors pounced. Anthony Greenland found space at the top of the Reno penalty area and he struck a beautiful curling shot that left the Reno goalkeeper beaten in the 75th minute.Marcus Gayle, UWI’s head coach, was disappointed as 49 points was only good enough for fifth, while Reno’s 34 points was as lucky as it gets, keeping them in tenth place.”Although disappointed at not making the semis, I think it was a terrific, wonderful first season in the league for us. Now we can build on this and become a major force in years to come,” stated Gayle.last_img read more

Anna Regina Municipality Pound back in operation

first_imgAfter being out of operation for a long period, the Anna Regina Municipality Pound is back in operation.This was revealed by the town’s Mayor, Rajendra Prabhulall during its statutory meeting on Thursday.Residents, especially drivers within the township, had been complaining of the many stray animals roaming the roadways, especially at nights and causing many accidents which were not reported owing to the unclear ownership of the animals.The Mayor said that as a result of the non-functioning of the Pound, the stray animals became a threat to road users, but with it back in full operation, the issue would be addressed.The newly-elected Mayor pledged to look at all avenues of development within the township. He called on Councillors to be friendly with their constituency, to work closely with the residents, especially the business people, and, most importantly, to make time to go out and listen to the many problems that residents face and deal with them in a holistic manner.last_img read more
