Luckain was rewarded, though, in the 200m after finishing second behind Yourie Lawrence of Naggo Head.Brianna Lyston of Southborough Primary broke the record in the Class One girls 100m final, clocking 12.47 seconds to better Sasha-Gaye Cunningham’s 2001 mark of 12.52.

Judge remind jury of responsibilities

first_imgPicture boy trial…closing arguments submitted As the third trial for double-murder accused Cyon “Picture Boy” Collier comes closer to its end, Justice Priya Sewnarine-Beharry reminded the jury of their responsibilities in the trial while State Prosecutor Tuanna Hardy and Defence Attorney Lyndon Amsterdam presented their closing address on Friday at the Demerara Assizes.Dead: Ray WalcottDead: Carl AndrewsCyon “Picture Boy” CollierIt is alleged Collier murdered two brothers, Ray Walcott, called ‘Sugar’, and his younger brother Carl Andrews, called ‘Alo’ in Victoria, East Coast Demerara, in 2006.Justice Sewnarine-Beharry reminded the 12-member jury that it was an offence to obstruct the course of justice, which is punishable by imprisonment, and urged the jury not to be in contact with any member of the family of the accused or others involved in the trial.Amsterdam, in his address refreshed the memory of the court that throughout the trial, there would have been “a long list” of discrepancies and conflicting stories among witnesses.Some of which he highlighted were issues of whether Collier was taken to the vehicle or underneath the house, or if the guys were drinking or not on the night of the killings.In addition to those ‘conflicting stories’ the defence counsel informed the jury that the accused has a presumption of innocence and it was up to the state to prove ‘beyond a reasonable doubt’ that Collier had committed the act.He closed by urging the jury to uphold the standards of fairness and equality while keeping an open mind when assessing the matter.State Prosecutor Hardy also informed the jury of what is expected for the state to prove in order to meet the standard of proof. She indicated that it was her responsibility to prove that the death occurred within a day and a year and was a result of injuries inflicted by the accused while the accused would have the intention to kill or inflict bodily harm.She pointed out that she had proven those criteria by providing evidence to support her position. The post mortem report indicated that the brothers died of gunshot wounds and were buried less than a month after their death.She went on to say that witnesses identified Collier as the man who pointed and fired the fatal shots at the brothers. While it was impossible to read people’s minds, pointing a lethal weapon with ammunition therein could be presumed to be with intent.Hardy further informed the jury that they should not be sidetracked by facts suggesting mere procedural inquires such as what was the accused wearing or whether they were drinking but focus on key points like the brothers were shot and killed, persons who had known the accused for years identified him as the shooter and the accused was found with guns.Collier is accused of murdering the two brothers in Victoria Village, ECD on September 23, 2006.Reports are a group of young men were playing dominoes at the Victoria four-corner when the two brothers were allegedly shot by the accused who rode up on a motorcycle.The brothers were rushed to hospital but were pronounced dead on arrival.The trial continues on Tuesday.last_img read more

Time is now for City in Europe – Kompany

first_img0Shares0000Captain Kompany urged Man City to finally launch a serious tilt at the Champions League title © AFP / SEBASTIEN BOZONBASEL, Switzerland, Feb 12 – Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany insisted on Monday that the “time is now” for his team to make a serious mark in Europe, but brushed off talk of winning a quadruple this season.Runaway Premier League leaders City face Basel at St. Jakob-Park on Tuesday in their last 16, first-leg, Champions League tie with the return game on March 7 in Manchester. Pep Guardiola’s side arrived in Switzerland on Monday full of confidence in the wake of Saturday’s 5-1 thrashing of Leicester which took them 16 points clear in the Premier League.But City have a score to settle in the knock-out stage of Europe after winning their group this term.“If ever there was a time that the team was to be comfortable in the competition, it’s now,” Kompany said.“I’m not going to say it’s a matter of time, because some teams never win it, but if it’s not this year, it could be next year or the next.“We’ll get there, I’m sure of it.”They lost to eventual winners Real Madrid in the 2015/16 Champions League semi-finals, then crashed out in the last 16 to Monaco last season.This term, Guardiola’s side have lost just once in 27 Premier League games — but Kompany played down any thoughts of a possible quadruple of Champions League, FA Cup, Premier League and League Cup titles.“The key thing I have noticed, and I am not saying if that will give us the four trophies or not, is the ability to switch on in this team,” said the Belgian centre-back.“There is no talk of the quadruple, but there is lots of talk of winning the next game… and the next… and the next.“I have never experienced this level of motivation, ambition and intensity throughout the team, but we have won nothing yet.”Kompany rejected the notion that City have struggled for confidence at Champions League level in past seasons.“I wouldn’t say we had an inferiority complex, but maybe a lack of experience in the past — for sure,” he said.“It’s a balance between not underestimating the weaker teams and not overestimating the stronger wins.“I don’t make a distinction between the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup. Can we win the next game? Yes, sure we can.”In the past, Guardiola has said City need to win the Champions League in order to be considered a top European team, a sentiment Kompany echoed.“It’s easy to make the statement, but going out and doing it means breaking into a well-established order,” said the injury-plagued 31-year-old.“Teams like Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern Munich, who often have gone far in the competition, many teams have tried to match them and failed.“We start with Basel tomorrow, it’s about measuring ourselves with the big clubs and beating them.”City manager Guardiola said Germany winger Leroy Sane has recovered after damaging an ankle ligament against Cardiff in the FA Cup at the end of January.“He has had one training session and he is young,” the Spaniard said when asked if Sane could play, while David Silva and Fabian Delph are also back training after injuries.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Council unanimously passes trash fee hike, city budget

first_img“This financial policy has never occurred before. It’s sending a clear message that we’ll be fiscally responsible and public safety is our first priority,” said Councilwoman Wendy Greuel, who drafted the policy. The city’s new $6.7 billion spending plan is an 11 percent, or $680 million, increase over last year. Some council members said this was one of the easier budget years, with few arguments over funding priorities. “None of us got all of what we wanted but all of us concur that this is the best financial blueprint for the city,” said Bernard Parks, who heads the council’s Budget and Finance Committee, which spent 50 hours on budget deliberations. kerry.cavanaugh@dailynews.com (213) 978-0390160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinalsCity Council President Eric Garcetti said city leaders have considered for more than two years whether to charge residents for trash pickup, prior to Tuesday’s uncontested decision. “We’ve had many discussions on the merits of the trash fee. We don’t feel there was a lack of discussion. I just feel there was a consensus by the time we got here.” Residents in single-family homes and small apartment complexes now pay at least $11 a month for their trash cans. The proposal would raise that fee $7 this year, with additional increases until the monthly bill reaches $28 in 2010. Within a month, the Bureau of Sanitation will send out public notices explaining the fee increase to 1.2 million customers and property owners. After a public comment period, the Council will vote to initiate the new fee. The trash fees will go into the city’s General Fund. As part of the budget, the City Council also approved a rule that the money should be spent first on hiring police officers and that the council cannot divert dollars to other projects without the approval of 12 council members. Without debate, the Los Angeles City Council passed a plan Tuesday to increase the monthly residential trash fee from $11 now to $28 by 2010 to pay for an additional 1,000 police officers. The fee hike and police force expansion were the centerpiece of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s proposed $6.7 billion 2006-07 budget, which the council passed unanimously. The budget, which takes effect July 1, includes funding for expanded library hours, gang-intervention programs and traffic officers to direct cars through the city’s busiest intersections. But public safety was the big-ticket item, with 40 percent of the budget spent on police and fire programs. The $17 monthly trash-fee increase, which will take place incrementally over the next four years, could start as early as September with a $7-per-month hike if it clears the last procedural hurdles. It will have the most immediate effect on residents of the new budget items. last_img read more

IRELAND CAPTAIN MURPHY: ‘WE’RE READY TO TAKE ON AUSTRALIA’

It’s been great catching up with everyone. We’re in Melbourne now and busy getting ready for the practice game on Sunday,” says Michael. “The weather here has been a bit overcast since we landed. It’s been around 14˚c for the last few days, but we’ve heard it’s going to hit the 20’s at the weekend.“After training yesterday, we visited the historic MCG (Melbourne Cricket Ground) where we met a number of the Australian based Irish at a special function.The MCG hosts both AFL and cricket matches and has a capacity of just over 100,000, making it the 11th biggest stadium in the world.“We also had the great pleasure of bumping into former Irish athlete and Olympic medalist Sonia O’Sullivan who now lives in Melbourne.

When it comes to betting on football, Chelsea offer great value

first_imgChelsea lost out to Manchester City at the weekend but could still be worth a bet for a trophy this season.When it comes to betting on football, there’s no doubt that Premier League leaders Liverpool have established themselves as the overwhelming favourites for the title this season.The odds on champions City retaining their crown have come in slightly following the win over Frank Lampard’s side, but oddsmakers still see Liverpool as the team to beat.Sites such as Bet365, Betfair and Betvictor are generally good places to place a bet and, while the odds on Liverpool are narrow at present, the likes of Chelsea and City should not be ruled out with sites like Betting.com and OLBG backing Chelsea for this weekend’s derby based on their recent form despite being unlucky vs. Man City.The win over Chelsea left Pep Guardiola’s men nine points adrift of Liverpool after 13 matches, while fourth-placed Chelsea are 11 behind the Merseysiders, whose nearest challengers at the moment are second-placed Leicester – few would have bet on that being the case at this stage of the season.Few would also have bet on Lampard enjoying such a strong start after inheriting a difficult situation when he took over as manager in the summer after leaving Derby County to return to Stamford Bridge, where he enjoyed such great success as a player.Chelsea had just lost talisman Eden Hazard, who got his dream move to Real Madrid, and were restricted by a two-window transfer ban imposed by FIFA for a breach of regulations on signing players under the age of 18.Youngsters deliveringHowever, the transfer ban led to a silver lining – with several of the club’s young players being given a chance to impress. For many years Chelsea fans have been dismayed at the lack of homegrown players coming through to the first team. But now there’s an abundance of them, which is in no small part down to the club being unable to make signings.The young batch includes Tammy Abraham, who had to bide his time while waiting for a chance at Chelsea. He impressed in the Championship while out on loan but seemed to have little prospect of making the breakthrough at Chelsea until Lampard showed great faith in him – even after a shaky start in the opening-day 4-0 defeat against Manchester United at Old Trafford.Abraham has responded by scoring 10 goals for the Blues this season and forcing his way back into the England reckoning. It’s been a remarkable success story and the striker continues to go from strength to strength.In midfield, Lampard has an abundance of options. One of them is Mason Mount, another academy product to have made a name for himself this season. With N’Golo Kante back from injury, Ruben Loftus-Cheek – another youth product – on the way back and Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic in fine form, plus Ross Barkley giving Lampard another option, the Blues are stacked with midfield talent. Young Billy Gilmout will also be one to watch in the coming years.Smart money could be on ChelseaFew teams in the Champions League, for example, boast that much firepower up front and creativity in midfield. The way Chelsea overcame Ajax in their group suggests they could well be a smart bet for the trophy, especially if the draw for the knockout stage is kind to them.Chelsea’s recent winning run – six in a row before the loss at City – showed they can also offer great value for moneyline bets – in other words, betting on the final score. Lampard’s side are consistent and for gamblers that’s important.They also offer value in the over/under market – essentially because they pose a threat going forward but have often looked vulnerable at the back. The loss of Toni Rudiger, who has played just once this season because of injury, has been a blow. It’s meant that Chelsea are likely to concede as well as score goals, so betting on at least three goals being scored in a Blues match is usually a sound investment, as the 3-1 defeat at City highlighted once again.That could change in the coming weeks for two main reasons. The first is Rudiger’s comeback, which should lead to the defence being shored up. The experienced German centre-back will surely make a difference. The second is the possibility that Lampard could yet be able to sign players sooner rather than later. A successful appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport would lead to the transfer ban being lifted in January rather than at the end of the season.In the meantime, though, gamblers should look to take advantage of Chelsea’s habit of producing goals at both ends.James is one to watchProposition betting is also popular when it comes to football – and here the emergence of another Chelsea youngster could be significant.Proposition betting covers certain things happening during a game, such as the first goalscorer, how many saves a goalkeeper will make and so on.Abraham’s record this season suggests he is always worth a shout for first goalscorer. But if you fancy more of a quirky bet, then make the most of Reece James’ elevation to the first team.Young right-back James was recently preferred to captain Cesar Azpilicueta and there is every expectation that he will eventually oust the older man from the team altogether.James has many notable attributes and one of them is his crossing. His delivery from the right is outstanding and could prove to be a big asset for Chelsea for many years to come. It could also be an asset for gamblers, because the chances are James will serve up more than a dozen accurate crosses in each game he plays. The odds being offered on a defender doing that are likely to be fairly generous, at least while James is a relatively unknown quantity among oddsmakers.Another potential win for gamblers to be aware of comes in the live betting stakes. Michy Batshuayi has had his problems at Chelsea but his goals-per-appearance ratio is actually very decent. When Batshuayi comes on as a substitute he is always worth a bet for next goalscorer!
