A Policeman, who allegedly told his son’s mother, “I will kill you and send you where your father is in the burial ground, your mother will come home and bury you,” was on Thursday charged and appeared at the Providence Magistrates’ Courts.Enoch JacobsEnoch Jacobs, also called “Doggie”, of Middle Road, La Penitence, Georgetown, appeared before Magistrate Judy Latchman and denied the three charges when they were read to him.The first two charges alleged that on September 19, 2019 at Hutsonville, East Bank Demerara, he used threatening and abusive language towards Annastatia Lewis.It was further alleged that on the same day at the same location, he assaulted Annastatia Lewis.According to the prosecution’s case, the Virtual Complainant (VC) was at home with her son, when Jacobs called and indicated he was coming to take the child for a haircut.The prosecution is contending that upon arriving, Jacob told the VC that he wanted her to accompany him; however, the woman refused. It was then, the prosecution’s case stated that Jacobs, realising the gates of the victim’s premises were locked, began to hurl explicit language towards her.The man allegedly became annoyed and jumped the woman’s gate and ran up the stairs. The court heard that the VC ran to safety and locked the doors, when the defendant allegedly proceeded to tell the woman that “I will kill you and send you where your father is in the burial ground, your mother will come home and bury you”.The woman’s cousin, who was at home, called the Police. The Police patrol arrived and the ranks instructed the man to leave the premises; however, as the victim was exiting the yard to enter the patrol vehicle, the man allegedly dealt her a slap.The man was subsequently arrested.The Magistrate, after listening to the facts, placed the father of four on $100,000 bail. The case will continue on October 15.The cop was previously charged in May for assaulting and threatening his wife at the Carnival Day parade on Vlissengen Road, Kitty, Georgetown.
Grand illusions, transformations, a disappearing banana, multiplying flowers, mentalism exercises, linking rings and a dancing scarf were among the magic feats performed at the first annual “Evening of Magic” benefiting the local Boys & Girls Club on March 10. More than 300 attendees helped bring in about $3,100 for the club. The show was put on by the International Brotherhood of Magicians of the Santa Clarita Valley. “I don’t recall seeing a show like this in our community,” said Jim Ventress, chief professional officer for the club and emcee for the evening. “It truly was a magical evening in Santa Clarita.” Magicians in the show ranged from 12-year-old Thomas Ellery, who performed onstage for the first time, to professionals with decades of experience. The International Brotherhood of Magicians ring is made up of residents from Palmdale, the San Fernando Valley and Santa Clarita. “It was an excellent family event,” said Valencia resident Denise Brown, who described her 10-year-old daughter as mesmerized with the program. “My daughter thought it was the coolest thing ever. She loved the kid magician and pointed out that he was only two years older than her.” The fundraiser began at 5:30 p.m. with an hour and a half of close-up magic. Seven performers set up separate stations and presented a variety of tricks using rubber bands, rope, sponge balls, a coloring book, currency, cards and other props as attendees roamed the room to watch. The two-hour stage show began at 7 p.m. For more information about the Boys & Girls Club, visit http://www.scvkids.org/. For more information about IBM, visit http://ibmring280.com/.

The US president’s tirade against NFL protesters culminated in an unprecedented show of defiance on Sunday when a large number of mostly black players dropped to one knee during the national anthem.Other players stood with arms interlocked while “The Star-Spangled Banner” was played in stadiums across the league.The playing of the national anthem is customary before sporting events in the United States.Trump has sought to reframe the meaning of the anthem protests as an unpatriotic gesture which shows disrespect towards the United States and its flag.“Sports are interlaced with the issue of race,” Jay Coakley, a professor of sociology at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, who described sport in America as “racially segregated.”“We have created a system of sports in the US that reflects our society,” Coakley said. “Eighty percent of the different US sport teams in the last Olympics were either all-black or exclusively white. Sports where fans are the more mixed are the NBA and NFL.”In the NFL, around 70 percent of players are black, compared with 75 percent in the NBA.By contrast, there are only around 30 black players in ice hockey’s National Hockey League, which is followed mostly by a white audience on television. A 2013 survey by Nielsen found that 92 percent of NHL viewers were white, with only three percent black.– Embracing ice hockey, NASCAR – Trump rescinded a White House invitation to the NBA champion Golden State Warriors and its star Stephen Curry © GETTY IMAGES NORTH AMERICA/AFP/File / EZRA SHAWOn Sunday, a day after announcing that the Golden State Warriors would not be welcome at the White House after star player Stephen Curry expressed misgivings about attending, Trump warmly praised the NHL’s Stanley Cup winners the Pittsburgh Penguins.“Please to inform that the Champion Pittsburgh Penguins of the NHL will be joining me at the White House for Ceremony. Great team!” Trump tweeted.While the US leader’s main focus has remained with the NFL, with a lengthy barrage of tweets taking aim at players who protest, he also found time to praise NASCAR, the most popular form of motorsport in the United States.“So proud of NASCAR and its supporters and fans,” Trump wrote on Twitter on Monday. “They won’t put up with disrespecting our Country or our Flag – they said it loud and clear!”White viewers make up 94 percent of the television audience for NASCAR, according to Nielsen’s 2013 study, against only two percent black viewers.The sport, which is most popular in the conservative South, has often seen Confederate flags — considered by some as a racist symbol — at its motor-racing stadia in recent years.According to Colorado academic Coakley, Trump’s juxtaposition of praising ice hockey and NASCAR while simultaneously antagonising the NFL and NBA is no coincidence.“He definitely did it on purpose — he knew he would get support from his base,” Coakley told AFP.“I don’t expect hockey players or golfers or NASCAR drivers to lock arms.“His comments are tied with the racial issue: he says that players that take a knee are not real Americans — but players that take a knee are mainly black,” he added.Trump for his part insists that there was no racial dimension to his critique of the protesting NFL players, whom he described as “sons of bitches.”“This has nothing to do with race or anything else,” he said. “This has to do with respect for our country, and respect for our flag.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Buffalo Bills players kneel during the national anthem before their NFL game against the Denver Broncos on Sunday © GETTY IMAGES NORTH AMERICA/AFP/File / Brett CarlsenWASHINGTON, United States, Sep 28 – Donald Trump’s feud with black athletes in the NBA and NFL has drawn attention to the racial fault lines which divide sport in the United States, analysts say.Trump triggered a firestorm of controversy last week after taking aim at American football players who knelt during the national anthem to draw attention to racial injustice. He later revoked a White House invitation to the NBA champion Golden State Warriors.
Eunan Cunningham, Manager of Fiontarlann Incubation and Enterprise Centre. PIC BY PAUL DOHERTY.An incubation and enterprise centre located in the rural Gaeltacht area of South West Donegal is home to a number of exciting, creative new businesses as well as being home to local enterprise and community support organisations. Local Carrick born, Eunan Cunningham, manages the centre known as Fiontarlann Incubation and Enterprise Centre in Baile na Móna, Cill Charthaigh, Co. Donegal, which was the result of a collaboration between WestBIC and local community organisation, Aislann Chill Chartha Teo.Fiontarlann Incubation and Enterprise Centre is a catalyst for creative and innovative enterprises in South West Donegal. The centre provides a wide range of business and innovation supports, mainly provided through WestBIC, and is a strong base for start-up businesses with onsite mentoring support to business owners to help them to grow and expand their businesses. Start-up capital through Business Angel Investors is also available to enterprises through the HBAN network, managed by WestBIC in the area.Speaking of his role and his experience in developing enterprise and supporting local entrepreneurship in the community, Eunan says, “I project managed the centre from concept to its official opening in 2008. The support from Údarás na Gaeltachta and the International Fund for Ireland secured the vital funding required to build, finish and promote the centre.“An Fiontarlann is currently home to six tenants, these include WestBIC, Donegal Local Development Company (DLDC), Tír Boghaine Teo, Whitepark Engineering, Accubook, and Orwell & Browne. Together we are working for the benefit of sustaining and creating employment in the area by providing a wide range of business and enterprise supports.”“Carrick is my home, I went to school here, then went off to college and was delighted when I got the opportunity to return home to work for WestBIC having worked for a number of years in the private sector. I often thought of those who had emigrated, including members of my own community and family, and that with the right supports in place they could return home and develop their businesses. These supports and opportunities are now available for those who wish to return and there are already examples of people who have returned home to South West Donegal to set up their business.” “South West Donegal is more than just my home. The natural beauty and environment and the sense of community here, makes this part of the world feel like it is the most special place on earth to live. The enterprises that have grown here are thriving and have created and sustained employment in the area. Companies in South West Donegal are now doing business globally with some of the biggest brands in the world including Ralph Lauren and Chanel and many of the world’s top international airline companies. I believe that it is partly due to the creative inspiration that is abundant in this area.” says Eunan.“I see more and more entrepreneurs and emerging creative talent, many originally from the area, reaching out to their home county for support with their ideas, in the hope that they can create a sustainable business and return home and base themselves here to live and work. It’s also very exciting to see traditional craft and textile industries based here continuing to redevelop and transform their businesses to compete on a global scale.”“For example, two members from a local family have based their businesses in Fiontarlann for research and development purposes and are getting the support they need to achieve international success.”“Our plan for the future is to grow the Fiontarlann to full capacity, continue to inspire and support potential entrepreneurs to set up business here in the area and to create additional good quality employment, whether it is directly or indirectly.” concludes Eunan.Ends – Photo Caption : Eunan Cunningham, Manager of Fiontarlann Incubation and Enterprise Centre.DD BUSINESS FOCUS: SOWING THE SEEDS FOR CREATIVE ENTERPRISES IN SOUTH-WEST DONEGAL was last modified: May 23rd, 2016 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)

Cole’s anecdotes about basic training have come to life for Chad, who found himself doing some of the same things his friend did “without realizing it.” Things like sneaking a catnap under the bunks because he was sleep deprived. While Chad was away, Lynette gathered up the mementos – which include pictures of Cole in Iraq, at his memorial service, his graduation – and mounted them in a shadowbox frame. Whitaker’s enlistment reverberated beyond his own house. It churned up an emotional minefield at the Larsen home. “In a way I feel like I’m reliving it again. He’s an MP in the same boot camp,” said Christi Larsen, Cole’s mother. She knows the drill for when Chad is on active duty. “I’ll probably deal with it the way I (dealt) with our son. I’ll bake cookies, send care packages, write letters.” Unlike Whitaker, Cole talked nonstop about joining the military, Larsen said. “From the day he could talk,” she said. “He started going to the recruiting office when he was 15. I think he bled camouflage.” Larsen still unearths her son’s little green Army figurines when she gardens. On Tuesday nights, she enters a cyber-world with other women who have lost children or husbands in war. In a chat room they bare the thoughts and frustrations that only people in their circumstances can feel. Whitaker will continue his studies as a business major at California State University, Northridge, until he is called up for active duty. — Judy O’Rourke, (661) 257-5255 firstname.lastname@example.orgWant local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake “It was pretty much a shock,” said Chad’s mother, Lynette Whitaker. “We said, you can’t bring him back by doing this. We were scared to death the same thing could happen to our son.” The Whitakers and Larsens, who live a couple of homes apart, moved in at the same time, when Chad was 2 1/2 and Cole was 3. Whitaker said Chad had always been college-bound and never talked about joining the service. For Whitaker, her son’s decision to follow Cole to the military brought fear that gave way to acceptance and respect for her son’s choice. “I admire him – seeing the pain of Cole’s loss, how devastating that has been to us as a community on this street – that he’s willing to do this.” Larsen was 19 when he died, the second of three soldiers from Santa Clarita claimed by the Iraq war. Two other friends enlisted in the Army at about the same time as Whitaker, but one was rejected because of a knee injury. CANYON COUNTRY – The 20-year-old college student needed to find the perfect way to honor his lifelong buddy, Army Pfc. Cole W. Larsen, who died in November 2004 in a vehicle accident in Iraq. The assemblage of mementos neatly pieced together in his room was one way, but it lacked a certain something. So Chad Whitaker upped the ante: He enlisted in the Army Reserves. “I talked about joining with my buddy Cole,” Whitaker said recently, the day after returning from five months of basic training in Missouri. But a relationship with a girlfriend intervened. “After he passed, I made my final decision.” The punk rock-loving teen turned 20 while he was away, on Nov. 6. His superiors helped him celebrate by demanding 20 push-ups. His enlistment came as news to his parents, who were on vacation when he joined.

It’s a photograph of the 1936 – 1937 senior team – the year Aodh Ruadh won the Donegal Senior Championship against Gaoth Dobhair by 3-8 to 4-2.These boys, if alive today, would be almost one hundred years old.Do you recognise any of these men in the photo?
