Fresh from a controversial draw decision in New York against American Jason Sosa, Nicholas ‘The Axeman’ Walters arrived in Jamaica last Saturday for an extended holiday in his hometown Anchovy, St James. “I will be in Jamaica for about a month. I will be taking it easy for the first week or so, just relaxing after my fight with Sosa. After that I will be getting back into training with my dad, as I cannot afford to get out of shape now, as 2016 will be a big year for me,” he told The Gleaner. The Walters versus Sosa fight has been the talking point in boxing circles for the past few weeks, following the surprising draw decision in Verona, New York, on November 19, in which nearly everyone except the three judges thought that Walters had won easily. One judge had Sosa as the winner 96-94, while the other two judges scored it 95-95, for a majority draw decision. The punch statistics favoured Walters as they showed that he landed 436 of 610 punches thrown, while Sosa landed 121 of 225. Walters also hurt Sosa in the fifth round but did not go in for the kill. Commenting on the fight, Walters said that there was no doubt in his mind that he had won his first fight as a super featherweight, and that he did not see his opponent winning more than possibly one round. What he has learnt from this experience he said, is that he has to “knock out all my opponents, so as to avoid any more bad decisions”. His father Job, who returned to Jamaica with him after being in his corner for the fight, said that ” it was a very poor decision. I think that Nick won every round. That is behind us now, however, and we are looking to the future”. He went on to say, “I think that it was a blessing in disguise, as we got more publicity from this bad decision than when Nicholas beat Donaire to become super champion. Everywhere we went, Nicholas was mobbed. He received a great welcome when he returned to Panama, and when we landed in MoBay, the people were all over us. It has been good, and the important thing is that he is still unbeaten.” Walters is now 26-0-1. A decision that has to be made by the Walters connections is whether he will fight as a featherweight at 126 pounds or as a super featherweight at 130 pounds in 2016. He told The Gleaner that when he returns to Panama next month, he will sit down with his team, go through all the options and make the decision. ” I can fight at either weight” he added.
Tomorrow’s 11-race programme at Caymanas Park offers a Pick-9 carryover of $1.4 million, but both Super-6s start anew.The Pick-9 will embrace races three to 11, the first Super-6 from race one to six, the late Super-6 from race six to 11.We look at the first Super-6, which commences with the Cash Pot ‘Rake’ Trophy for four-year-olds and up over 1400 metres to be contested by seven starters, all native bred four-year-olds.With the likes of FIERY PATH, MONALISASMILE, HOMECOMING and FREE RANGE all expected to prove competitive, a close finish is anticipated.FIERY PATH, however, has the best credentials, having caught the eye when finishing four lengths second to UNRULY TEXAS in a fast-run one mile race (1.41.3) some days ago.FIERY PATH, who showed good speed until giving way to the winner early in the straight, finished seven lengths clear of the third horse, FREE RANGE, and with top apprentice Bebeto Harvey riding for trainer Donovan Plummer, looks the right choice over this shorter trip.The second race over 1300 metres for the Cash Pot Bonanza Trophy, should provide the steadily improving 4-y-o colt LEIGHTON REID from the stables of topline trainer Anthony ‘Baba’ Nunes with his second consecutive win.The Region of Merit offspring will have the services of bang in form claiming apprentice Dane Dawkins, and having broken the ice, should repeat at the expense of DIRECTOR DALEY (improving) and down in class MILITARY MOVE in a nine-strong field.DYSFUNCTIONAL, who was caught within shades of the wire by lesser fancied stable-companion QUEEN OF BAGDAD over 1300 metres recently, will relish the milder pace of the third race over 1820 metres, and with leading jockey Omar Walker retaining the ride from champion trainer Wayne DaCosta, should make no mistake.Fellow three-year-olds COUNTER ATTACK (Dawkins up) and GOLDEN GLORY are twin dangers in a field of nine.PRINCE KAMALI, with Harvey aboard, has been knocking at the door lately and should be good enough to stave off his only serious rival, BIG AL (Dawkins up) in the fourth race for maiden three-year-olds over 1100 metres, this for the Cash Pot ‘Play it’ Trophy.The last two races in the first Super-6 should be won by the Philip Feanny-trained 2-y-o debutante FORT KNOX (working well) with Ian Spence aboard, and in the sixth, LEEKOUT (beaten narrowly last time) with champion jockey Shane Ellis riding for new trainer Michael Marlowe in a field of 13 maiden three-year-olds.FIRST SUPER-6 FANCIES(1) FIERY PATH/FREE RANGE(2) LEIGHTON REID/DIRECTOR DALEY(3) DYSFUNCTIONAL/COUNTER ATTACK(4) PRINCE KAMALI(5) FORT KNOX/RADICAL(6) LEEKOUT/MA GRANDE
Residents of Fourth Bridge, Herstelling, New Scheme, East Bank Demerara (EBD) are calling on the regional officials to pay heed to their current plight of having to daily traverse deplorable roads in the area.A section of the Herstelling Road which is causing much distress to residentsThe roads, for the past months since the rainy season commenced, cannot be used, thus, forcing residents to use alternative and very lengthy routes to get to and from their homes.This prompted several residents to reach out to Guyana Times. When this publication visited the area, it was observed that several sections of the roads had eroded severely leaving large water ponds throughout.According to one resident, vehicles are stuck in potholes daily.“Every single day some vehicle have to be pulled out from one of these holes because the road gone so bad that you can’t even let you try to drive through. Them holes this like river man, watch, we aint lying, tell me how anything can pass here?” the man questioned.One businessman said that because of the road’s condition, company trucks which supply him with goods for his grocery shop have requested that he find alternative means for getting his items delivered. The man noted that this is costly for him, which is causing him to lose profits.“Now tell me how that could work out for me? I can’t be vex with the people because watch at this here, how in heavens name will any vehicle pass through this? The people got a right to refuse to come in but while they refusing, its putting a strain on me and my business because now I got to find extra gas to make several runs to pick up my goods them on my own, all because we can’t get this road fixed” the businessman lamented.According to the residents, the area is relatively new and as such to date, the roads have not been properly built.However, they are calling for the Public Infrastructure Ministry to have some work carried out in order for the roads to be made useable.“We aint look for nothing fancy, even if they fill up these hole with bauxite and all right now it would be better because this here can’t work. We have children going to school, not everybody rich and have money to call taxi. My son does have to use bicycle and sometimes when he come home if you does see he condition. One day he deh trying to pass one of this whole and he fall in…” the man recalled.The residents are hoping for swift action to be taking to address their woes.
By Davina RamdassNew musical artiste Orlando Cummings, whose stage name is ‘Lil King’, is presently dominating social media with his songs, which are geared towards raising awareness on social ills.Lil King performing one of his original piecesThe 22-year-old singer sat down with Guyana Times on Saturday and explained that he developed a passion for music at just six years old. He recalled drumming and making beats while writing lyrics to accompany them, often defying his teachers’ rules. This often got him into a lot of trouble and resulted in his parents visiting him quite frequently at school.He admitted that he had not been too attentive to tuition from nursery all the way to primary school, but said he began focusing more on his education after entering secondary school.An exciting singer, Orlando Cummings was born at Lusignan, East Coast Demerara (ECD) but moved to Strathspey, ECD, where he grew up. King said that when he was younger, his friends would pay him to sing, and he sang so that he could raise enough money to buy cricket balls.“I had my group of guys. We used to enjoy playing cricket a lot, and in my videos you would see me showcasing cricket, because I always loved cricket, as much as I love music; and when I sang, the older kids used to come and pay me to sing, and at the end of the day I was able to purchase a cricket ball or something of the sort, and we’d enjoy our game,” the musician recalled.Although he tried his best to focus on his studies during his time in secondary school, King explained, he would often perform at school concerts, which would have the crowd quite hyped. Today, the humble young man said, he intends to make a difference with his music. In fact, realising that domestic violence is a major issue in Guyana, he said, he is currently working on a song to raise awareness of this issue.He advocated his conviction as follows: “Women are someone we are supposed to look up to. Sometimes they would say harsh things, yes; but you can walk away, you have a choice…they do something wrong (and) we don’t like it or can’t take it, leave”.Lil King is hoping that his messages can reach persons living across the globe. “A kid might wake up and he might say, ‘Man, I don’t know if anything is going to ever happen for me. What’s life gonna be like for me? Everything is going so tough’; but I am basically showing them that, ‘Hey, you can still do this; you don’t have to pick up a gun to earn something, you don’t have to pick up a knife and go and rob someone. You can put your head to it and say “I’m going to work hard”,’” the musician encouraged.As a matter of fact, these very thoughts have inspired the young man’s first release, ‘Be What You Wanna Be’. The single, along with a video, was released in August 2017 and has grasped the attention of many young people.Although he has since released other singles, the young musician did not hesitate to declare that he enjoyed working on that song the most. In the video, King is seen playing cricket with his friends in his community while sending his message of positivity.The spotlightBeing in the spotlight has its advantages, King noted. But even more so, it exposes musicians to a lot of negativity. Being a young singer/songwriter, he said, he always has to ensure that he keeps his guard up, and not allow the negative comments to cloud his mind.Very frequently, he said, young people would message him and send him encouragement, while others would attempt to distract him from doing what he loves best.“Some people would tell you some really hurtful things, but you have to be strong; cause if you’re not, you’d want to quit, and if you solely love something, I don’t see why you should quit…let the bad comments slide”, he told the aspiring musicians.SupportLil King is grateful for his parents’ support, although he is still too shy to perform for them. The singer said his mother and father have been two of his biggest fans and motivators.Meanwhile, although he provokes his two elder sisters, he pointed out, they have played major roles in motivating and encouraging him as well.King mentioned his fans, without whom he said he would be nothing. His music videos can be viewed on his Facebook page @ Lil King.More importantly, the young musician thanked Brutal Tracks Recording for work with him and giving him guidance along the way.

0Shares0000“I think politically something will happen in the next 12 months to regulate and limit the transfer amount,” Wenger said in comments published by British newspapers Saturday © AFP/File / Ian KINGTONLONDON, United Kingdom, Sep 23 – Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes there will be a radical overhaul of the transfer market within the next year following the stratospheric spending of the close-season trading period.Paris Saint-Germain smashed the world transfer record to sign Neymar from Barcelona for 222 million euros ($266 million), while Premier League clubs spent £1.4 billion ($1.9 billion, 1.6 billion euros). German chancellor Angela Merkel urged the sport’s authorities to curb spiralling fees earlier this month and Wenger said the intervention of such a figure proved it was time for change.“Something will happen. It is for the first time that, politically, the German prime minister came out,” he said in comments published by British newspapers on Saturday.“I think politically something will happen in the next 12 months to regulate and limit the transfer amount.“You have to go one of two ways — regulate it properly or leave it completely open. But you cannot be in between.“That is where we are at the moment. That is only to the advantage of some clubs who can deal with rules in a legal way.“The regulation has to be stricter and clearer or open it completely: you can do what you want, provided you can guarantee you have the money to pay.“At the moment, we are a bit in between and that does not work.”Wenger believes the high fees will increase the likelihood of players running down their contracts and then leaving clubs on free transfers.Both Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil are in the final years of their Arsenal contracts.“With the amount of transfer levels and the expected amount of contracts the players want, you will have more and more players going into the final year of their contract,” Wenger said.“You will be in a position where you either extend for money you cannot afford or you go into the final year of their contract.“This season there were 107 players in the Premier League who got into the final year of their contract for the first time and you will see that more. The clubs want too much for normal players.“So what happens? The club cannot sell and doesn’t extend the contract, so more and more players are going into the final year.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
Donegal Pens brothers Ronan and Conor Mc GarveyThe McGarvey brothers of Donegal Pens have just made a major investment in their business taking it to a new level.Not to be beaten by the refusal of funding from state agencies due to their young age, the Loughanure boys have taken a huge step to further their business.Ronan, 17, and Conor, 14, travelled to the UK where they spent “quite a lot” of their hard earned cash on a new laser engraving system. The boys had been outsourcing their engraving work since last year but decided that it was time to look at in-house engraving.The newly installed Mantech laser machine now allows them to laser engrave names, messages, logos, etc on the wood part of their handmade pens. In addition to that they can also engrave glass, marble, tile, ceramics, aluminium, leather and many other materials. They have even personalised the flutes for the Mullaghduff marching band.The new system is one of just four from the long established UK based Mantech company’s laser systems that is operating in Ireland and the boys are excited about the new addition to their business.“We explored this option for quite some time but the price of some of the basic laser systems we looked at exceeded €12,000 and that just wasn’t within our budget. We were put in touch with Mantech UK and travelled over to see their high end equipment and soon realised it was what we needed. “We underwent onsite training at their facility, and following some negotiations on price, we returned to Loughanure with the new system for somewhat less than €12,000,” said Conor.The boys looked at several machine options and finally went with a model that can both engrave and cut a variety of materials. It has an engraving bed size of 600 x 400mm that will allow them to carry out many other projects in addition to engraving their pens.They were fortunate to secure a very large corporate order for pens recently and decided they would reinvest the proceeds and put it towards the funds required for the new system.“It was a huge sum of money to be handing over but we decided that we would take the plunge and add a new dimension to our business. Unfortunately our age restricts us from receiving any grant aid or financial support which we feel is ridiculous. It’s not much of an incentive for young entrepreneurs when funding agencies won’t entertain you because “you’re too young” but that isn’t going to stop us in trying to bring Donegal Pens to a new level,” said Ronan.It took a bit of time for the boys to get accustomed to the new equipment but they have finally ironed out all the issues and are now up and running with the latest addition to their business. “So far we’ve had a lot of enquiries and orders for both personal and corporate gifts. The fact that we can engrave company logos etc is a huge bonus as businesses like to use our pens as corporate gifts. Our options for engraving and cutting are basically unlimited so we are excited about this new chapter for Donegal Pens,” added Conor.Donegal Pens are now stocked in just under forty outlets in Ireland and three in Germany, and the new engraving option is also available on www.donegalpens.comDONEGAL PEN BOYS WRITE ANOTHER CHAPTER ON THE ROAD TO SUCCESS was last modified: July 20th, 2014 by StephenShare 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)Tags:DONEGAL PENSengraving system

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! It appeared that incumbents, along with two newcomers, were leading in early returns Tuesday night in school board elections in the East Whittier, South Whittier and Whittier City school districts. East Whittier City School District With three seats at stake, incumbent school board members Paul Gardiner and Christine Chacon Sullivan and challenger Armando Urteaga led challengers Michael J. Brady and Edmund Velasco.An opening was created when Bob Ehlers chose not to seek re-election.“I’m pleased with the results, obviously,” Gardiner said. “I like to think I’ve done a good job. You know with school district board members, I’m not sure how many people in the district have an idea what I might have done.”Sullivan stressed the need for more parent involvement in the schools.Brady said his teaching experience at a struggling middle school that has managed to raise its test scores would be a valuable asset to the school board.Urteaga, a school administrator, said one of his first priorities would be to look at the budget again to see if the district could free up money for after-school programs.Velasco, a professional musician, has been a fervent supporter of arts in education. He has worked with a local elementary school to keep music programs going despite a lack of district funds.Gardiner, Sullivan and Velasco were endorsed by the local teachers’ union, the East Whittier Education Association. South Whittier School District Incumbents Deborah Pacheco, Sylvia Macias and Tim Schneider led opponents L.H. “Butch” Redman and Layla Avila.During their campaigns, incumbents Deborah Pacheco, Sylvia Macias and Tim Schneider each stressed the need for stability in the district, where millions of dollars in voter-approved bond money is being used to upgrade and modernize schools.Redman had charged the school board with being unresponsive to parents and vowed to change that.Avila, an educational consultant, said she ran primarily to help guide the district as it faces increasingly tougher state and federal academic accountability standards.She cited improving test scores, increasing parent involvement and making sure the district has high-quality teachers in every classroom as her main goals. Whittier City School District Incumbents Javier Gonzalez and Ken Henderson and challenger Linda Small were leading challenger Efrain An opening was created when board member John Peel decided not to run for re-election.“I’m pleased that Ken Henderson and myself are winning,” Gonzalez said. “I’m hopeful that all the work we did we will get positive results.”Aceves outspent all four of his opponents, pumping about $9,000 into his campaign, compared to less than $1,000 spent by each of his opponents, according to their campaign spending reports.
