Bleachers Report: It’s over for Waterhouse

first_imgWaterhouse FootbalL Club got promotion to the National Premier League with Geoffrey Maxwell in charge in 1997. Quickly after promotion, they won the Premier League in 1998 and again 2006. They were perennial semi-finalists or finished as a top-four team every year. Last year, they were third in the League, the year before, they finished second to Montego Bay United and they fielded the best players in Jermain ‘Tuffy’ Anderson, Romario ‘Rum Rum’ Campbell, Tremaine Stewart, Damarley Oliver, Hughan Gray, Nicholy Finlayson, Evan Taylor, Richard McCallum. This prompted a rival coach to refer to them as the ‘Galacticos’ of local football. Their chairman is none other than Tank-Weld’s Bruce Bicknell; Ricardo Chin, the former KSAFA vice-president and president of Ricardo Chin Productions, was the president for six years; Felix Porter the general secretary; and Ainsley Smeikle the treasurer. These are very experienced administrators who charted a course for the team to win numerous local and national titles over the years. This year, they upgraded and changed president, replacing Chin with Fitzroy Vidal, and added Edwardo Cornwall, owner/manager from Metrodate Security, who is the former manager of Rivoli United Football Club Cornwall may yet go into the Guinness Book of Records for managing two teams that got relegated in the same season. Also, Porter was replaced as general secretary by former captain Mccallum. If you think that was interesting, it was the coaching changes that defied logic. They fired Anthony Patrick and employed former Rivoli United coach, Calvert Fitzgerald, the man who kept Rivoli in the Premier League for two seasons. Bleachers Report referred to him as a big coach with a little team. Going to Waterhouse, he was always going to be a little coach in a big team and so it proved. He had to walk away due to non cooperation from senior players. So Patrick came back, but with no success. So Waterhouse went overseas and employed Paul Young, the former Jamaica striker, who is a coach of some repute who had already done a stint at Waterhouse for a half season. For a time it looked good, winning KSAFA Jackie Bell KO matches, but the wins in the Premier League did not follow. Waterhouse wanted to strengthen the coaching team with Donovan Duckie, who also coached St Georges from Portland, Highgate United, Star Cosmos and Axum from St Mary, Montego Bay United from St James, Brazil from St Ann and also Waterhouse. Young refused. They already had Alex Thomas and player-coach Kevin Lamey, which is a nice combination. Kevin Lamey is 41 football years, Waterhouse already had on their roster 37-year-old Anderson and 33-year-old Devon Hodges, a total of 111 years of forward line. Bleacher’s Report will be presenting this to the Guinness Book of Records as the oldest forward line ever to play in any Premier League football competition in the world. They also bought back two of their former players, Theo Brown and Weston Forrest, who had been transferred to Tivoli Gardens FC, plus other players who cannot start on any other Premier League. Back to the coaching, after Paul Young left, Patrick came back for his third stint in one Premier League season, another Guinness Book of Records entry. This time, Duckie, Junior Francis and former Waterhouse legend, Hugh ‘Bingie’ Blair, who is now coaching Maverley-Hughenden in the KSAFA Super League, have all reappeared to help. Bleacher’s Report believes it is too late. How can the players relate to a coach who could not keep his job two times. Waterhouse have held up the League since it started and will remain so to the end. After the Harbour View match, the management has already given up and one was overheard singing a song with the arrangement SAD EYES, by Robert John’ ‘Looks like it’s over, you knew we could not stay (in the Premier League). Waterhouse getting relegated before May. We had a good run, why must the fans and players look that way. Bleachers Report chimed in, it’s ooooooover. Sad eyes, turn the other way, Bleacher’s Report does not want to see you cry. Sad eyes, you knew there would come the day when you and the Premier League would have to say goodbye.’ NOTE: Nicolas Beckett, who scored both goals on Sunday in Harbour View’s 2-1 win over Waterhouse, was a former resident of Waterhouse. Big up yourself Ricky Chin! You start to look good now. STRENGTHEN COACHINGlast_img read more

3 Caltech security guards to be honored

first_imgPASADENA – Three Caltech security guards will be honored in April for assisting the Pasadena Police Department in breaking up a suspected burglary ring, officials said. Doni Harrelson, Agustin Valadez and Ivan Gaor will be presented with the annual Award of Merit from the California College and University Police Chiefs Association for their cooperation last October, according to Caltech spokesman William Heim. Their work led to the arrests of William Demarest, 36, of South El Monte and Mark Roe, 33, of Altadena. It also helped connect at least 30 burglaries in Pasadena, Arcadia, Monrovia and Colorado last year, according to Heim. Throughout last fall, a series of unsolved burglaries occurred on Caltech’s campus, leading to thousands of dollars in property loss and leaving security guards on high alert, Heim said. Harrelson determined the latter suspect was on parole for previous burglary charges and may have been involved in those occurring around campus, according to Heim. Police then used the information to discover that the suspects were involved with several other burglars in the region, said Heim. Lt. Lisa Perrine of the Pasadena Police Department offered few details about the case, saying it is still under investigation, but said the security guards’ cooperation was fundamental to its success. “Detectives were very happy with the proactive and vigilant stance of the security guards at Caltech,” Perrine said. “Pasadena police were able to get suspects into custody. They assisted greatly in our case.” Valadez said he was pleased by the award. “It feels good. This will be the first award I’ve gotten in the civilian world,” said Valadez, adding that he received several such honors while serving in the Marines. mary.gurton@sgvn.com (626) 578-6300, Ext. 4461 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Valadez said he was patrolling the campus during his usual midnight-to-8 a.m. shift in late October when he noticed two men suspiciously checking doors on several buildings. Harrelson and Gaor then arrived and the three requested Caltech identification cards from the men, according to Valadez. “I thought there was a possibility they might have been graduate students,” said Valadez, 31. “But then one of them became aggravated and argumentative and the other one ran away.” Valadez and Gaor gave chase while simultaneously notifying Pasadena police. The man who fled was arrested by Pasadena police a day later, he said. The other suspect was taken into custody at the scene. last_img read more

Record rounds for Haas

first_img“I played well again,” said Haas, the tour’s player of the year last season. “I seemed to putt better. I felt comfortable over the ball.” Jacobsen, who had laser back surgery last week to repair disk damage caused from a hip replacement last year, followed his opening 66 with a 64. “I might have to shoot 61 to beat him,” Jacobsen said. “He is playing really well.” So is Jacobsen. “I came out with no expectations this week,” Jacobsen said. “It is overwhelming in the way I feel. I feel great and I’m real happy to be able to make some swings.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Polar bear cub’s a hot, new star at Berlin Zoo

first_imgHe’s only 15 weeks old, but the Berlin Zoo’s impossibly cute polar bear cub Knut already has become a sought-after media star in his home city with his own TV show and video podcast, a photo shoot with Annie Leibovitz and a long-awaited public debut scheduled in the coming days. Zoo officials were meeting Wednesday to discuss when the button-eyed cub, who has endeared himself by snuggling up to his own teddy bear and wrestling with a toilet brush, will be put on public view after building a following through the zoo’s Internet site and daily pictures in newspapers. “I think that people will be able to see the bear by this weekend,” Andreas Ochs, a veterinarian with the Berlin Zoo said on N-24 television, noting that he would have to be shown with his handler and only for brief periods. “Certainly, the public is going to have to be patient, as there will be a huge interest,” Ochs said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Fascination with the nearly 19-pound bear has only grown in recent days, after headlines generated by an animal activist who insisted that the cub should have been left to die after his mother ignored him and his brother – who later died – after their birth in December. They were the first polar bears born at the zoo in 33 years. Zoo officials intervened, instead, choosing to raise the cub themselves through bottle-feeding and keeping the cub in an incubator. The fuss over “Cute Knut” continued on Wednesday with the country’s largest newspaper, Bild, publishing a Knut poster, matched by Berlin’s own B.Z. tabloid. Knut, who recently posed for a photo shoot with star-photographer Leibovitz for an environmental protection campaign, will star in a TV series documenting his life on Berlin’s RBB public television station starting Sunday.last_img read more

Fort St. John Fire Department respond to morning gas leak

first_imgJust before 8:30 a.m. this morning members with the Fort St. John Fire Department responded to a gas leak in the Garrison Landing area. Fire Chief Fred Burrows said the cause of the leak was from a contractor excavating a hole when he made contact with a gas line, causing it to rupture.The role of the department according to Burrows is to set up precautionary suppression equipment and isolate the area to protect the public while Pacific Northern Gas locates a shut off valve in the neighbourhood.There is always the potential for ignition when a gas line has been ruptured Burrows said, as the bigger the gas line is, the more static electricity is built up because of the plastic material. Self ignition through the static is possible. An external source is not required.- Advertisement -Homes that were neighboured to the excavation were evacuated. The situation has since been resolved and department members were on hand for just under an hour and a half.last_img read more

Kitchen Design

first_img This article is only available to GBA Prime Members Every decade, kitchen design becomes more complicated. It’s gotten to the point where some residential designers subcontract the work to a specialist.If you are a humble owner-builder, do your kitchen preferences even matter anymore? Of course they do. If you’re building a house, you should certainly have a say in matters affecting kitchen design — even if your ideas are different from those of the experts. The basics Before we focus on details that make a kitchen green, let’s quickly review the basics.The oldest kitchen design principle concerns the triangle between the refrigerator, sink, and stove. According to traditional wisdom, you want this so-called “kitchen triangle” to be fairly compact (but not too cramped). Most sources advise that each leg of the triangle should measure between 4 and 9 feet. Ideally, your house design keeps foot traffic away from this triangle. (In other words, the normal path from the living room to the stairway shouldn’t be through the kitchen.)These days, cooks realize that the kitchen sink serves two functions: food prep and clean-up. Larger kitchens sometimes separate these functions by providing two sink stations — one station (usually near the refrigerator) for food prep, and the other (usually near the dishwasher) for cleanup. If you have this type of kitchen — a good kitchen to have if your family includes two cooks — your triangle has become a quadrangle.Some families use their microwave oven as often as their range, and these families claim that their microwave deserves status as an important apex in the kitchen geometry. If you agree, then your quadrangle has become a pentagon.Of course, you’ll need to plan for adequate counter space on the handle side of the refrigerator, on both sides of the… Sign up for a free trial and get instant access to this article as well as GBA’s complete library of premium articles and construction details.center_img Start Free Trial Already a member?

Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin ruled out for the rest of the season

first_img Reuters LondonJanuary 22, 2019UPDATED: January 22, 2019 18:24 IST Hector Bellerin went down clutching his knee while challenging for the ball against Chelsea on Saturday (Reuters Photo)HIGHLIGHTSHector Bellerin suffered a knee injury against Chelsea on SaturdayBellerin will have surgery to repair the injury to his left knee and is expected to be out for up to 9 monthsArsenal next host Manchester United in an FA Cup fourth round tie on FridayArsenal right back Hector Bellerin has been ruled out for the rest of the season after sustaining an anterior cruciate knee ligament injury in Saturday’s 2-0 Premier League win over Chelsea, his club said in a statement on Tuesday.Bellerin will have surgery to repair the injury to his left knee in the coming days and the Spain international’s rehabilitation is expected to take between six and nine months.The 23-year-old, who was making his first start after returning from a calf injury, went down clutching his knee while challenging for the ball in the second half and was carried off the pitch on a stretcher.His injury is another blow to manager Unai Emery, who had already lost defender Rob Holding for the rest of the season to a similar knee problem last month.The Spanish coach said he had players to fill in for Bellerin and was unlikely to dip into the transfer market to sign a replacement, having previously said he could only take players on loan in the January transfer window.”We have Ainsley [Maitland-Niles]. He can help us by playing like a right back or a right winger. And also, [Stephan] Lichtsteiner is another player,” Emery said.”I don’t forget [Carl] Jenkinson… he played some matches and if we need [him], he is okay to help us.”Arsenal next host Manchester United in an FA Cup fourth round tie on Friday, before returning to Premier League action against Cardiff City at home on January 29.For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
