John Fabien also succumbed to his illness on June 22nd, 2012 and was also granted an official funeral on July 7th, 2012.Elford Henry who served as the parliamentary representative of the Wesley constituency as well as in local government, died on July 13th, 2012.Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, Roosevelt Skerrit noted that all three men sacrificed their time towards Dominica’s development.“All of these gentlemen made sterling contributions to Dominica’s development; whether it is agriculture, whether it is in politics, whether it is in religion, whether it is on the economic development and social advancement of Dominica. Madam speaker, you could say in large measure that they all died with their boots on, working in the vineyard and laboring in the vineyard for Dominica’s development. These are all men who committed their entire working life to Dominica’s development”. He said further; “I could always count on them for their good counsel, their advice and their support”. Former prime minister and president of the United Workers party Edison James, who rose to offer a message of condolence, remembered Henry for his work in the Banana industry, explaining that he was a “stalwart in terms of the management” of that sector.According to James, one of Henry’s major roles during his work in the banana sector was controlling leaf spot; a disease which severely affected bananas some years ago.Former minister of health, John FabienParliamentary representative for the Wesley constituency, Gloria Shillingford, remembered Henry as a leader who served his constituents well and made a mark on the entire country. “Henry was a leader and motivator when he represented his people in Parliament very well and we remember him as a no nonsense person, but as a person who loved his people and represented them. He was a very, very positive person madam speaker, a person who spoke his mind, and was not afraid of doing so, and a person who also gave political advice. I knew him not only politically but as a friend. He was one you could depend on to lead you in the correct way”.Meanwhile, Minister of Health, Julius Timothy, said he might have been the only Member of Parliament who had the privilege of serving with all three men during his political career.“I am probably the only one here who served in parliament with all three, that is Charles Maynard, John Fabien and Elford Henry. Between 1980 and 1985, Elford Henry and I were in fact the flag bearers of the Labour party in the senate, and Elford Henry and I we also worked on the National Bank board together, we were very, very good friends”.Timothy revealed one of Henry’s sayings which he cherishes; “If you don’t have, you should always wish that your friend had as that is the only way you can enjoy it and I remember that up to this day”. UWP senator, Ezekiel Bazil, who is from Wesley, noted that Henry was a community man and devout catholic who served with distinction.“I knew him very well as a local catholic and in fact a lay minister of the Catholic Church. I knew him as a community man who has served the people of the Wesley, Woodfordhill constituency with great distinction in central government and also for a lot of his life in local government”. Leader of the Opposition, Hector John said, Henry was known for being a “very jovial, friendly” man who gave good advice. Henry also served as the chairman of the Banana Trust Unit, he was the operations manager of the Dominica Banana Marketing Corporation and at the time of his death he was a member of the Wesley Village Council.Domincia Vibes Newslast_img read more

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Manan Vohra was undergoing a tough phase in his cricketing career. He was dropped from the Punjab side for the Ranji Trophy games. His performances in the Vijay Hazare Trophy, in which his highest score was 27, left him in a precarious position. Royal Challengers Bangalore, who had picked him in the 2018 Indian Premier League, had released him and there was a possibility that the 25-year-old from Chandigarh would not be part of the IPL in 2019. In the recent auction, Vohra was not attracting any bidders until Rajasthan Royals snatched him at his base price of Rs 20 lakhs.After he was picked by the Royals, Vohra emotionally thanked and expressed his gratitude to the Rajasthan Royals. Speaking exclusively to News Nation, Vohra opened up on the emotional rollercoaster that he was undergoing at that time. “Personally, when you want things to happen, they do not happen. When I felt my time was right, things were not going well. Being dropped from the Ranji Trophy and an inconsistent run in the one-dayers had made me nervous. It is like that phase of life where I had to fight hard to get certain things done. When I was picked, I was really happy and grateful to the Rajasthan Royals,” Vohra said.Read More | BCCI announces cash reward for Kohli brigade after win against AussiesRajasthan Royals will be the third franchise for Vohra, having played before for Kings XI Punjab and Royal Challengers Bangalore.

However, the pride that we feel right here is different to the feeling that the 15 guys in Australia are feeling. Their sense of pride will be in a totally different level,” Vohra added.With the IPL being played before the World Cup which will be held in England in 2019, Vohra said this edition gives youngsters like him a chance to shine. “The World Cup is a priority for all the other senior members who will be headed to England.

Stranded National boxers and footballers in care of Government

first_img..says Director of Sport, Christopher JonesBy Ras WadadaTHE plight of two national footballers and four amateur boxers, stranded in the USA and Cuba respectively, have been comforted by the timely intervention and assistance of the Government of Guyana, according to the Director of Sport of the National Sports Commission, Christopher Jones.Speaking to Chronicle Sport, Jones related that, “The welfare and protection of the two footballers and four boxers are being adequately taken care of by the Government through the direct involvement of the Guyana Consulate in Miami as it relates to footballers; and in Havana, the Ambassador has made available to the boxers the Villa used by the Guyana Embassy to house visitors”.Director of Sport, Christopher Jones“I can safely say that the athletes are under the care of the Guyana Government and that they and their families have been informed as it relates to the current situation, and I am in contact on a daily basis. As soon as the present situation is improved and our airports are opened again, they will be returned home safely, but rest assured they are in good care even as it relates to the present global pandemic COVID-19”, Jones assured.Footballers– Jeremy Garrett and Curtis Kellman– on football scholarships in the US became stranded in Miami when they were denied boarding their confirmed booked flights to Guyana on a Caribbean Airlines flight with a stop-over in TT. The Trinidad- bound flight was only taking natives on board and this was on the eve of the two International Airports here being closed to incoming flights. The two are being housed and fed at a hotel in Miami. Their expences are being covered by the Guyana Consulate.The Amateur Boxers also met their unexpected circumstances on the eve of the Timehri and Ogle Airports  being shut down and at the end of their stint which lasted just over two months. The four National and Caribbean Champions – Kevin Allicock (Bantamweight), Colin Lewis (Light Welterweight), Desmond Amsterdam (Middle Weight) and Dennis Thomas (Light Heavyweight) –  departed Guyana for Cuba on January 4th,  to fine-tune preparation training for the Olympic qualifiers, compliments of a tri-partite effort among the Guyana Boxing Association (GBA), The Guyana Olympic Association (GOA) and the Guyana Government.In an invited comment, President of the GBA, Steve Ninvalle expressed appreciation for the Government of Guyana for readily coming to the assistance of the pugilists and concurred with the pronouncement of the Director of Sport.“We are happy and most thankful that the Government of Guyana has quickly come to the assistance of the Boxers and we feel more at ease knowing that they are comfortable and in good care in Havana after being safely removed from Santa Clara where they were in training.Of course, nothing is more comforting than being at home with your family. It is going on four months these guys have been away, but the uncertainty of the current situation globally, it might be a blessing they are in Cuba. I am in constant communication with them on a daily basis and am happy to report that they are all in good health and comfortable”.Director of Sport, Jones added that ‘the Guyana Embassy in Cuba is working closely with officials at the Jose Marti International Airport in Havana with regards to getting the boxers out on the earliest flight back home, but that is also dependent on when the International Airports are opened again here in Guyana’.last_img read more

Chevy’s struggles keep Penske out of Indy 500 pole shootout

first_img FOLLOW US Written By SUBSCRIBE TO US WATCH US LIVE First Published: 16th August, 2020 07:33 IST COMMENTcenter_img Last Updated: 16th August, 2020 07:33 IST Chevy’s Struggles Keep Penske Out Of Indy 500 Pole Shootout And when the gun finally sounded, the most successful team in race history found itself shut out of Indy’s nine-car pole shootout for the first time since the format debuted in 2010. It’s also the first time Team Penske hasn’t had a car start in the first three rows since 2002 Associated Press Television News One by one, Roger Penske’s four drivers took their shots during Indianapolis 500 qualifying Saturday.Each time, they returned frustrated or flummoxed, futilely searching for answers.And when the gun finally sounded, the most successful team in race history found itself shut out of Indy’s nine-car pole shootout for the first time since the format debuted in 2010. It’s also the first time Team Penske hasn’t had a car start in the first three rows since 2002.“Not a chance, not a chance,” Will Power said disgustedly after posting a four-lap average of 229.701 on his four-lap run. “One of the slowest cars ever. We ran less down force than Josef (Newgarden) and it was slower. So that’s it, man, that’s what we’ve got. At least we can focus on the race now.”The 2018 Indy winner made two more attempts but wasn’t any faster. Penske’s other drivers — three-time 500 winner Helio Castroneves, defending Indy champion Simon Pagenaud and two-time series champ Josef Newgarden — continued making attempts, too.Nothing worked.Newgarden qualified 11th on the three-car, 11-row grid. He’ll start on the inside of Row 5 next Sunday. Power wound up 22nd with a 229.701, Pagenaud was 25th at 228.836 and Castroneves will be 28th — the worst starting position in his 20-year career at the Brickyard. He posted a 228.373But unlike 25 years ago, when Al Unser Jr. and Emerson Fittipaldi did not qualify for the race, this was not just Penske’s problem.The Chevrolet-powered cars struggled all day, with Honda engines claiming the top five seeds and eight of nine shootout spots. Marco Andretti had the fastest car at 231.351.Rinus Veeky, the 19-year-old Dutch rookie, was the only driver standing in the way of a Honda sweep. He was sixth at 231.114.“It was my fastest lap ever at Indy,” he said. “I haven’t done too many laps as a rookie, but I feel really happy. I had a good car at high speeds, so I already knew what the car was going to do. It just felt great and I didn’t have any problems at all.”That was a rarity for the Chevy drivers.VeeKay’s teammates, three-time pole winner Ed Carpenter and Conor Daly, qualified 16th and 18th. Carpenter also owns the team.Tony Kanaan, the 2013 Indy winner, is starting 23rd, and JR Hildebrand, the 500 runner-up in 2011, qualified 32nd after avoiding the wall during his only attempt of the day. Two-time world champ Fernando Alonso never had a chance, either.“I was happy with the run and I think it’s what we have at the moment,” the Spaniard said after qualifying 20th at 228.768 in his Chevy. “We knew this morning or maybe yesterday, we were not going to be real good with the boost. So we said let’s focus on the race car.””The obstacles for Penske’s team kept getting worse.“Obviously, we are working on it,” Castroneves said after making the first of three qualifying runs. “We’ve got to see if we can find something, just to find it. However it’s going to take at least two to 2 1/2 hours to cool down this car to see if that’s possible. We’re going to try. Otherwise, we have a very good car for the race.”Things went so poorly, Newgarden and Power were back in line when Hildebrand, the last driver to make an attempt, finished his run.When that didn’t work, Team Penske returned to its garage where crew members and engineers watched television coverage, looking for a glimmer of hope.That moment came when points leader and 2008 Indy winner Scott Dixon improved his morning time during a mid-afternoon run, sending he Penske crew back back to pit road. They tried everything, at one point even attempting to time a run under cloud cover.Castroneves told NBC he finally figured out what was wrong on his ensuing run. But in a seemingly fitting conclusion to the day, Castroneves was still in line when time exprired.“At least we can focus on the race now,” Power said. “We’ll work on the race car and then we’ll see.”Image credits: AP LIVE TVlast_img read more
