first_imgWESTERN BUREAU: Defending ISSA Western Conference double champions, Herbert Morrison Technical, will put both their Under-16 and Under-19 titles on the line, when they take on Cornwall College in the final of both categories. Ralique Grant and Devon Watson spearheaded the lopsided 106-58 win for Herbert Morrison, whose Under-16s brushed aside Muschett High 80-36, while Cornwall eased past Holland High 56-16. Cornwall’s Leacroft Lettman was the game’s high-point man, leading all  scorers with 14 points for Cornwall College. He also held five rebounds to go with four steals and two assists. Teammates Jowayne Jones added 10 points and two rebounds and Alwade Thompson chipped in with a handy nine points for the winners. Owen Rodney was the only player with a significant performance for Holland, with eight points, two rebounds and five steals. In the Under-16 semi-final against Muschett, Okieffe Noble was brilliant, topping all scorers with 20 points and 11 rebounds. The outstanding Shaqueal Benti also made himself useful with a 19-point, 13-rebound game, while Davaughn Campbell’s 12 points added to the huge margin of victory. In the senior category, Grant outlined his liking for the big games when he and Watson combined for 55 of Herbert Morrison’s total output. Grant had a game-high 28 points, while Watson finished with 27 points and seven rebounds. Tafari Vassell grabbed 16 points, 10 rebounds and three steals to help stave off the William Knibb charge in the final quarter. Herbert Morrison led from the opening tip-off and held a 49-23 lead at half-time and never allowed their opponents to close the gap. The best-of-three final takes place with Game One set for Montego Bay Cricket Club this afternoon at 4 p.m. (Under-16) and 6 p.m. for the Under-19s.last_img read more

San Francisco official charged in extortion attempt

first_imgSAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Federal authorities Thursday charged a rookie San Francisco lawmaker with fraud for attempting to extort $80,000 from a group of fast-food proprietors who had business permit troubles. The felony charge stems from an FBI sting that included the tapioca-drink shop owners delivering a $40,000 payment to Supervisor Ed Jew in marked $100 bills earlier this year, and promising to deliver the rest of the money later. Jew, 47, has acknowledged taking the money, but said he did so at the businessmen’s insistence and on behalf of a consultant he recommended they hire to help with their permit problems. But the owners of the Quickly chain of 12 tapioca-drink stores insisted it was Jew who first approached them with word of their permit problems. Tapioca drinks, also known as “bubble tea,” are popular beverages throughout Asia and San Francisco’s Chinese neighborhoods. Jew is charged with a single count of mail fraud. Authorities allege that Jew deprived his constituents of his “honest services” by attempting to shake down the owners of the Quickly chain of drink shops. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Both teams are currently sitting in 2nd place in their respective league tables after the weekends results.After a half time score of 1-07 to 1-03, favouring Cloughaneely, our reserves came out with a storming opening to the 2nd half which saw them score 2-05 within 15 minutes. However Killybegs then found their stride again and responded with 3 goals of their own within quick succession. Cloughaneely managed to maintain their distance however and finished with a comfortable 3-16 |4-06 victory.Seniors: Cloughaneely had the disadvantage of playing against a slight breeze for the 1st half. Killybegs were very strong defensively so every point was hard fought. Half time score was CCF 0-06 Killybegs 0-05; with 3 of CCF’s points coming from frees (2 from Denis Boyle, 1 from Shaun McGuire) and Cloughaneely’s top scorer of the day Paul Sweeney contributing the remaining 3. Just before half time Killybegs launched a long ball in to their full forward, however CCF’s keeper Shaun McClafferty expertly beat his opponent to the ball and cleared it to safety just before the half time whistle.2nd Half: Killybegs dominated the play for the first 20 mins of the 2nd half and got the opening point of the 2nd half 8 minutes in; however a lot of missed opportunities meant they failed to progress on the scoreboard and they scored their final 2 points within the dying minutes of the game. Shaun McClafferty again proved his worth in the 40th minute when he produced an excellent save to deny a powerful strike on goal. Cloughaneely began to come back into the game again thanks to a point from Paul Sweeney in the 48th min. This was quickly followed by an excellent run from Cillian Gallagher who passed the ball of the Shaun McGuire to register CCF’s 2nd point of the 2nd half. Darren Ferry and Denis Boyle contributed Cloughaneely’s final 2 points of the game in the dying minutes. However, just before the full time whistle the quick actions of Paul Sweeney and substitute John Harley earned Cloughaneely the only goal of the game.

This Vermont Park Is Going Off-Grid

first_imgA 908-acre park in southwestern Vermont will become the state’s first park to run entirely on solar power.Emerald Lake State Park, located in Dorset and not far from the New York State Line, has been plagued by an unreliable connection to the grid. Power lines are easily damaged by falling tree limbs, and repairs are difficult because of the rough terrain they have to cross.But by the time the park opens to campers and paddlers next spring, it should have an on-site system that combines photovoltaic (PV) modules and Tesla Powerwall batteries. As existing power lines are phased out, the park ultimately will have no connection with the grid.Green Mountain Power named Pika Energy of Westbrook, Maine, to design the system. Company President Ben Polito says that planning has just started, so it’s too soon to know how many PV modules and batteries will be required. The park surrounds the 20-acre lake and has 67 campsites and 37 lean-tos.The company said in a press release that Green Mountain Power is hoping the new off-grid PV system will cost 20% less than rebuilding utility lines and save as much as $8,000 annually in maintenance.“GMP seeks Pika Energy’s products as a solution to the ‘last mile’ problem of delivering grid services to customers whose location and landscape make traditional utility lines difficult,” the company said.The Tesla batteries earmarked for the Emerald Lake project are among the 500 Powerwalls Green Mountain Power plans to install around the state, Pika said. The batteries, to be delivered this fall, will bolster Green Mountain’s efforts to provide clean power to customers and reduce peak loads on the system, Green Mountain said in a press release.last_img read more
