first_imgLocalNews Portsmouth Mayor describes murder of Zicak resident as “disgusting” by: – December 29, 2011 Share 90 Views   6 comments Share Tweetcenter_img Mayor of Portsmouth Cleve St. Jean. Mayor of Portsmouth Cleve St Jean has described the violent murder of 22 year old Tyson ‘Boyee’ Thomas which took place in that town on Tuesday afternoon as “disgusting”.On Tuesday, Tyson “Boyee” Thomas of Zicak, Portsmouth was fatally shot by a masked man whom the police have not yet identified.“It is really something that is disgusting, and the police and the community need to come together to help one another, to prevent these kinds of crime, be it just petty thieves, murder or another crime in the community,” St. Jean said.According to the Mayor, the entire community needs to play their part by providing information to assist the police with their investigations.“In order to solve any crime you need the community and you need information. As much as the police are playing their part in terms of investigating, we need to bring institutions close to the community and make people feel they are party of everything, because in order to solve any crime we need information from the community. We need to institute programs that the community is going to feel a part of the police and the police feel part of the community, so we can get information in solving crimes.”The Mayor further stated that one person’s action can affect the safety of the entire town and therefore calls on perpetrators to cease from committing these criminal acts.“We cannot have a town where persons can feel they can do anything; we cannot have a town where persons can feel they can murder or cheat or steal and it’s just ok because it’s not ok. One person affects the whole town. We have tourist in the town and besides tourist we the people need to feel safe.”The Mayor therefore calls on the perpetrators to “stop because their action is affecting everybody”.

first_img Pennant produced a wonderful 82nd-minute strike that curled over the wall and beyond goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen to secure a 1-0 victory in their Barclays Premier League clash at Upton Park. The 30-year-old winger’s contract was due to expire in the summer and he was expected to leave having been marginalised under former boss Tony Pulis, only for Hughes to give him a 12-month extension. “Jermaine has been excellent since I came to the club. I’ve always admired his talent, but he’s had his own problems and will tell you that himself,” Hughes said. “When I came in and there was a real possibility he could leave the club, I felt like I couldn’t allow that to happen. You don’t want him turning up at Stoke in a different shirt. “I felt it made sense to keep him at the club and work with him to see what he’s like as an individual and player. He hasn’t disappointed me. He comes in every day with a smile on his face. “His work’s good and you don’t score a goal like he did without putting extra work in on the training ground, which he does every single day. “In the past maybe he’s been judged before he’s had the chance to show what he can do. He’s let himself down probably as well, which he’ll admit to. “He’s in a different place in his life now and is enjoying his life. I’m delighted for him.” Pennant’s goal was the highlight of a frustrating match that dominant Stoke should have won more comfortably with Kenwyne Jones, Marc Wilson and Jonathan Walters failing to convert first-half chances. “I think everybody would agree that we deserved to win,” said Hughes, who is hoping to bring in an attacking player before the transfer window closes on Monday. Stoke manager Mark Hughes claimed Jermaine Pennant’s match-winning free-kick against West Ham proved why it was vital to keep him at the club. “From the first minute until the last we got the ball down, passed and moved. Overall we always looked a threat and the only criticism I’d have is we should have won more comprehensively. “We had to wait until the latter stages of the game and that great finish from Jermaine, but from our point of view it was almost the perfect away performance.” West Ham manager Sam Allardyce acknowledged it was a poor display after watching his side fail to seriously trouble Stoke keeper Asmir Begovic. “At home, I haven’t seen us play that badly since we’ve been back in the Premier League, sadly,” Allardyce said. “We have to accept that at this moment in time it looks like we’re still establishing ourselves in the Premier League. “We still can’t quite reach the level of consistency this league demands. It was a really off day for us, a bad day. Our back four limited Stoke very well. “But the front six in terms of creativity really wasn’t there. It really wasn’t good enough and we played poorly, individually and collectively.” Press Associationlast_img read more

first_imgBENDER: Conference-only is college football’s best hope for 2020The season is supposed to start Aug. 29, but that seems like a stretch given the state of the five most powerful conferences.  Here is a closer look at where each one stands:  ACC On July 29, the ACC unveiled a plus-one model for the 2020 college football season. Notre Dame, a FBS independent, will be a full member as part of that 10-game conference scheule. The Irish also are eligible to compete in the conference championship game, which is scheduled for either Dec. 12 or Dec. 19 at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte. Notre Dame will split its television revenue with the other schools in the conference, and that includes money generated from its NBC television contract. The schedule left room for one nonconference game. The conference announced that the first games will take place the week of Sept. 7-12, and the 11-game schedule will span a 13-week period with two weeks.  Big Ten  The Big Ten was the first to adopt a conference-only model for the 2020 season, announcing the change on July 9.  That means key nonconference games such as Michigan-Washington, Oregon-Ohio State and Notre Dame-Wisconsin won’t happen. The 11 nonconference games with the Mid-American Conference also are off the schedule.  The Big Ten plays a nine-game conference schedule (six intradvision, three crossover), so it will be interesting to see whether there are changes to the matchups.  Big 12 According to ESPN.com, conference will decide in late July how to proceed.  “As we go forward, we’re going to have our own set of criteria,” commissioner Bob Bowlsby said. “We’re mostly relying on the advice of scientists and doctors who are advising us. We believe the decisions ought to be made slightly later.” The Big 12 also canceled its plan for a virtual media day on Aug. 3. Pac-12 The Pac-12 followed the Big Ten’s lead and moved to a conference-only model for 2020 on July 10.  “Our decisions have and will be guided by science and data, and based upon the trends and indicators over the past days, it has become clear that we need to provide ourselves with maximum flexibility to schedule, and to delay any movement to the next phase of return-to-play activities,” commissioner Larry Scott said in a statement.  The Pac-12, like the Big Ten, plays nine conference games, but this year it won’t be playing in nonconference games that could have helped its College Football Playoff chances. The conference has not been represented in the Playoff the last three seasons and has the fewest appearances (two) among the Power 5 conferences. SEC On July 30, the SEC moved to a conference-only model for the 2020 college football season. Sports Illustrated first reported the news.  The COVID-19 pandemic continues in the United States, and it continues to impact the looming 2020 college football season.  The Power 5 conferences in the FBS have already shifted their views about a potential season, but not everybody is on the same page. The conference-only model is in effect in some places, but it is not a universal plan.  The SEC will begin play on Sept. 26, which is three weeks after the scheduled start of the college football season. The SEC will maintain its seven-team division format, and teams will play two more crossover games with the new schedule. In addition, the SEC has moved its conference championship game to Dec. 19. Traditional SEC-ACC rivalry games such as Florida-Florida State, Kentucky-Louisville, Georgia-Georgia Tech and South Carolina-Clemson will not be played as a result of the decision.last_img read more
