Midfielder Vishinul Harris on Monday night knocked even harder on the door to a Reggae Boyz invite with another fine display as he spurred defending champions Arnett Gardens to a 2-1 win over leaders Portmore United in the Red Stripe Premier League.The 22-year-old could not have chosen a better stage than in front of a capacity crowd with national coach Winfried Sch‰fer in attendance. Blessed with the languid movement, deceptive skill of former national player and coach Theodore Whitmore at his best, Harris glided through opposition defenders at will and sprayed passes long and short, almost to perfection. The only ‘negatives’ displayed by Harris was a tendency to hold on to the ball a little bit too much, which contributed to his failure to score.For Harris, though, the important thing was getting the three points for his team.THREE POINT AIM”The three points are what we wanted. That was the aim before this match started, to get the three points, and we are happy that we got them,” the national Under-23 player said.The win pushed Arnett Gardens to 42 points, just one below Portmore United.Both of Arnett Gardens’ goals resulted from Harris assists. In the ninth minute, he made a slide rule pass to Leon Strickland, who collected with his back to goal, spun around and steered to the opposite corner from where goalkeeper Shaven-Sean Paul was rooted.For the second goal, which came in the 42nd minute from the boot of Newton Sterling, Harris found him with a long pass – which he collected while off balance – and managed to get the shot off while going down.Jovan East scored a beauty for Portmore United in the 48th minute to give them more belief, as Arnett Gardens hung on for the win.GELLING”The main thing in the camp right now is to push for another title and this win will help us as we are just a point behind Portmore now. We normally gel properly in about December so we are in a good spot to make a run now,” admitted Harris of his team’s standing.His own performance, he said, could have been better.”It was a good performance, but not for me, enuh. But I should have killed off the game before it got to stoppage time, and I am a bit disappointed with that,” said Harris, who failed to score after cutting through the backline and dismissing ‘keeper Paul, but hesitated in firing and had his eventual cutback blocked.The former Charlie Smith High School player said he was denied a clear foul in the dying minutes when he was cut down just outside the 18-yard box.”Actually, it was a foul. It was definitely a foul. My feet were hurting me, but I had to keep on pushing,” he said.Despite not adding to his goal tally, Harris said he showed national coach Sch‰fer enough to convince him that he deserves a look.”I think I would have shown him some of the things that I can do. Actually, I was the MVP for the game, so definitely I was the player for the night,” he said confidently.StandingsTeams P W D L GF GA GD PtsPortmore 22 13 4 5 27 17 10 43Arnett G 22 13 3 6 34 19 15 42MoBay U 22 11 8 3 34 13 21 41Humble L 22 8 8 6 18 17 1 32H View 22 7 9 6 23 22 1 30UWI FC 22 8 6 8 24 29 -5 30Cavalier 22 7 6 9 18 21 -3 27Boys’ T 22 7 6 9 23 30 -7 27Reno 22 5 9 8 20 30 -10 24W house 22 4 8 10 20 28 -8 20Tivoli G 21 5 4 12 23 30 -7 19Rivoli U 21 4 7 10 20 28 -8 19
Mr. Joseph Daffa Wiles, the manager of Greenville Port in Sinoe County where the alleged wreck was removed, yesterday told Criminal Court ‘C’ that he was finding it difficult to testify against his former boss, Matilda Parker, whose confidence he said he has enjoyed.Mr. Wiles, who testified as prosecution’s third witness, said Madam Parker in 2009 appointed him to his previous post.“I acted as port manager when one of our managers refused to take the assignment in Greenville and was dismissed in 2008. Then in 2009, Madam Parker confirmed me as port manager,” he recounted.Wiles almost broke down in tears when he said, “And so, it is a difficult day for me to have to be a witness in a trial involving my former boss, Madam Parker, whose confidence I enjoyed.” He consoled himself by saying “So I pray that God gives me the strength to say the truth and nothing, but the truth.” When he was asked by a state lawyer whether he has knowledge about wreck removal at his port by Denmar Enterprise, allegedly owned by Liberian businessman, Deneah Martin Flomo, Wiles responded: “I did not receive any communication from the NPA management telling me that Denmar Enterprise was going to remove wreck in my port.”Wiles further said that it was in January 2011 when Buchanan Renewable Energy (BRE) managed to lift a smaller piece of sinking vessel from the port.He said in 2012, another company identified as G-4 also removed a piece of the sinking vessel, but that “the larger part of the vessel is still lying in the basin in the port.”He explained how BRE and G-4 were both contracted to do the piece of work they did at the Port of Greenville. “The name Deneah Martin Flomo was never mentioned to me either by my management or the BRE to be associated with the work that they did there or they were doing there in January 2011.”“I have never been in contact with any man called Martin Flomo in the Port of Greenville or anywhere else in Liberia,” the prosecuting witness said.Parker and her Comptroller Christiana Kpabar Paelay are being tried for their roles in awarding two contracts in the amount of US$837,950 to Denmar Enterprise for the removal of sinking vessels from the Port of Greenville and to provide security consultancy to port security, for which prosecutors claimed the money was paid but the work was never performed.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

The child’s mother’s boyfriend and the boyfriend’s mother were ordered last week by a Kern County Superior Court judge to stand trial on charges relating to the 5-year-old’s beating death. George “Bleu” Tyler, 27, is charged with murder and child abuse. His mother, Mavis Watson, 45, of Lake Los Angeles, is facing a count of aiding after a felony. Darion’s mother, Dionna Wheat, 22, has been charged with felony child endangerment and being an accessory after a felony. She is scheduled to appear for a preliminary hearing in May. All three have pleaded not guilty. Tyler remained in custody, while Watson and Dionna Wheat were free after posting bail. Darion’s father, Darnell Wheat, filed a $5 million wrongful death claim against Los Angeles County in February, alleging that the Department of Children and Family Services was negligent in the handling of the family’s case, contributing to the child’s death. LANCASTER – A Palmdale grandmother whose 5-year-old grandson was beaten to death is turning her grief into action, organizing a march to raise awareness about child abuse. The march will be held at 5 p.m. April 13 starting in front of the Lowe’s store at 10th Street West and Avenue K and ending at Lancaster City Park. “We are trying to bring more awareness about child abuse into our community,” said 49-year-old Annie Ray. “The more aware people are, we can prevent such a tragedy that happened to my grandson Darion.” Darion Wheat of Rosamond died in August. Authorities said Dionna Wheat originally told them that Darion died after she accidentally ran over him with her car in their Rosamond driveway. But an autopsy indicated Darion died from blunt-force trauma inconsistent with being run over by a car, Kern County officials said. Two months before his death, Darion visited Annie Ray and reportedly told his grandmother that he was afraid of his mother’s boyfriend. The grandmother said she found bruises on Darion’s 4-year-old brother and called authorities, but social workers allowed the boys and a toddler brother and infant sister to return to their mother. Investigators believe Darion was beaten to death Aug. 9, 2006, in his mother’s home. Ray had had custody of the older children until December 2005. Tyler had been under a court order to stay away from Darion and the two younger boys, though not the 8-month-old girl, who is his daughter, a Department of Children and Family Services report shows. Ray said in an interview with the Daily News that she was told the court order was issued when the children were returned to their mother because Tyler refused to be fingerprinted for a background check. Ray said a social worker told her the order had not been enforced because it was never served on Tyler. Social workers also told her visits to the Buckwheat Avenue home in Rosamond showed no signs a man was living there, she said. email@example.com (661) 267-5744160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

“Every time we agree on what needs to be done should be fulfilled. Am perturbed that this has not been happening,” President Kenyatta said.This comes in the wake of complains from athletes that are headed to the Commonwealth Games in Australia over lack of proper kitting and non-payment of allowances which brought a near go-slow to training, less than two weeks to the games.The head of state has said the country has an obligation to honour its sportsmen and women who raise the country’s flag high.He said sports federations, including the Athletic Kenya, Kenya Golf Union, Kenya Football Kenya Federation, Kenya Rugby Union, Cricket Kenya and Kenya Hockey, had to style up and ensure that they fulfil their mandate.President Uhuru Kenyatta poses for a photo with members of Team Kenya during the Commonwealth flag handover ceremony at State House on march 27, 2018.

It takes a lot of effort to participate in the variety of international competitions,” said the President.President Kenyatta told the team that whatever the Government has allocated in terms of allowances and rewards is their entitlement and they should not shy away from demanding them from federations.“There are things we agreed that need to be done for the rugby team, golf teams and other sportsmen and women, as we demand that they meet our expectations we also should do our part,” said President Kenyatta.Kenyatta spoke on Tuesday morning at State House, Nairobi, as he handed the team headed to Gold Coast, Australia the flag.The team will be skippered by World 1500m champion Elijah Manangoi.

Drake (5-2, 4-2 PDL) surrendered just 343 yards against the league’s top offense and the Drake defense continued to make big plays, including a 26-yard interception return for a touchdown by Jeran Proctor that accounted for the Bulldogs’ lone touchdown of the day. Danny Donley also booted a 28-yard field goal in the third quarter after a big hit by cornerback Jabari Butler forced a fumble to set up the score. Connor Willis led the defense in tackles with 11 on the afternoon.”Our defense made some big plays and forced some turnovers,” said Drake head coach Rick Fox. “That’s where we got our 10 points, but we were never able to sustain a drive and keep our defense off the field.”Along with the defense, Ross Kennedy’s punting helped keep Drake in the game as USD returned just one of his eight punts, and for a scant three yards at that, while three others were boomed inside the 20-yard line. He finished the day with an average of 40.4 yards per punt and a long of 49.San Diego’s standout quarterback Anthony Lawrence competed 21-of-32 passes for 227 yards and touchdown. He also recorded a rushing score as well. The Toreros’ defense held Drake to 254 yards and stymied the Bulldogs’ usually efficient passing attack all day, recording six sacks and multiple hurries on Drake quarterback Grant Kraemer. “We never got on track offensively and that set the tone for the game,” Fox added.Steven Doran had 96 yards of the Bulldogs’ offense on seven catches to continue his stellar season despite USD holding a 14-minute advantage in time of possession.San Diego scored on its second drive of the game when a 43-yard pass from Lawrence to Armstead set the Toreros up on the Drake 4-yard line. Drake’s top-ranked defense forced a fourth-and-goal situation, but Lawrence managed to carry the ball in to give USD an early lead. USD tacked on another score to end the first half when they recovered a Drake fumble on the Drake 9-yard line and four plays later Lawrence had another short carry into the endzone. The PAT attempt failed to give the Toreros a 13-0 lead at the end of the first quarter.Drake’s defense answered, as it has all season, to open the second quarter when Jeran Proctor intercepted a floating pass at the USD 26-yard line and weaved through would-be tacklers to score the Bulldogs’ second pick-6 in as many games. The defense made its presence felt again with a big stand on 4th down to thwart a USD drive in Drake territory. However, the Torero defense picked off a deep pass two plays later to take the momentum from the Bulldogs.USD capitalized on that error with a 62-yard sprint by Martinez to put the Toreros on the goal line. One play later, Terrence Smith carried the ball in from three yards out to put USD up 20-7 with 5:46 left in the half. That score held up to end the half despite Drake attempting to mount a drive in the in the final minute. Unfortunately for the Bulldogs, that drive ended when USD’s David Tolbert picked off a pass on the USD 7-yard line. San Diego racked up 245 first-half yards, including 114 on the ground against the Bulldogs’ vaunted defense.The Toreros added to their lead to open the second half when Lawrence completed a 42-yard pass to Michael Bandy to put USD up, 27-7, and effectively seal the victory heading into the fourth quarter.Drake remains at home for its next contest against Marist, Nov. 10, at Drake Stadium. The Bulldogs will honor the program’s seniors prior to the 1 p.m. kickoff of the final home game of the year. “We’re going to move forward in the next two weeks and play the kind of Drake football we normally play,” Fox added.
