Fishing the North Coast: Slow start to the steelhead season

first_imgIt’s been somewhat of a sluggish start to the winter steelhead season on the North Coast, and it’s hard to put a finger on exactly why. All of the coastal rivers saw a good rise onChristmas Day, but that influx of water didn’t bring much in the way of steelhead numbers. Granted, a handful of steelhead have been caught on all of the rivers, but not nearly as many as there should be considering the conditions of the rivers.Could this be the year we really feel the effects of the most-recent …last_img read more

Kalmadi should not stay IOA chief anymore: Maken

first_imgThe government has made it clear that it will strongly push to end Suresh Kalmadi’s reign as president of the Indian Olympic Association (IOA).Soon after Kalmadi’s arrest on Monday, the sports ministry wrote a letter to the IOA, asking it to find a replacement for him.”In keeping and maintaining the fair image of sports in India, the government would like the IOA to consider appointing an alternate president in place of the present incumbent for managing the affairs of the IOA,” the letter said.Sports minister Ajay Maken also said the government was not in favour of having Kalmadi.”What we have decided here in the sports ministry is that as soon as the official arrest of Suresh Kalmadi is announced by the CBI, we are going to write to the IOA that they should elect a new president,” Maken said.”When a person is in jail or has been chargesheeted, it would not be in the national interest that he should represent the country anymore,” he noted.Kalmadi has been heading the IOA since 1996. While most of the national sports associations have agreed to abide by the sports ministry’s guidelines that put a cap on the age and tenures of the sports association bosses, Kalmadi has refused to step down.Maken also warned the IOA of stern action if it did not adhere to the instructions. “We would also be writing to the attorney-general seeking his legal advice. The government can also take action on its own if the IOA fails to take any action against him,” he said.”advertisement”We will first write to the IOA to remove him and elect a president.Simultaneously, we will also write to the A-G seeking advice on the issue,” the minister added.last_img read more

$10 Million Resource Centre Opens in Eastern Hanover

first_imgStory Highlights The facility includes a community library, internet café, bathrooms and multi-purpose hall Member of Parliament, Dr. D.K. Duncan presented the group with a gift of $100,000 The JN Foundation would be dedicating resources to the centre Residents of Mt. Hannah and surrounding districts in eastern Hanover are to benefit from the opening of a resource centre valued at approximately $10 million in their area.The Mt. Hannah Resource Centre, established by the Mt. Hannah Primary School Past Students Association in collaboration with the Organization of International Development (OID), was officially opened on August 5, the eve of Jamaica’s 51st anniversary of Independence.The facility includes a community library, internet café, bathrooms and multi-purpose hall; and will benefit hundreds of students and adults from across the districts of Donalva, Mt. Hannah, Maryland and adjoining communities.Member of Parliament, Dr. D.K. Duncan, congratulated the Mt. Hannah Past Students Association and the wider community for “persevering together and achieving great things for the community.”He presented the group with a gift of $100,000 that will go towards further construction work on the resource centre.“In consultation with Councillor Lloyd Hill, we have decided that this is an appropriate venture for us to make even a small contribution of $100,000 to the project out of the Constituency Development Fund (CDF).  This is in appreciation for what you have together achieved for the benefit of many of this immediate community and surrounding areas,” Dr. Duncan said.Delivering the main address at the opening ceremony, Representative of the Jamaica National Building Society (JNBS) Foundation, Virginia Turner, said the activities at the Mt. Hannah Resource Centre are going to be successful because the entire community has “embraced and bought into the dream.”“We at JN Foundation firmly believe if you give persons the resources and you get them to buy in, that they are responsible for the development of their communities and if they are given the opportunities and the resources, then they can make changes in their societies,” Ms Turner noted.She pointed out that unless the young people and seniors alike are engaged in these tough economic times to get themselves trained and to become self reliant, the country will be in trouble.“I am therefore encouraging all citizens across this and adjoining communities to make the best use of the many opportunities that will be emerging from this resource centre. I am also encouraging the formation of senior clubs for both females and males, in order to bring out their creative and resourceful abilities.” she said.Ms.Turner noted that the centre has to make money to be sustainable. “If the centre is not sustainable after a while nothing will go on here, so be resourceful and the centre will benefit entire communities of the parish,” Ms.Turner said.She announced that the JN Foundation would be dedicating resources to working with the centre in the extensive structuring of programmes and activities in ensuring that members benefit as they prepare for the future.last_img read more
