first_imgFERNDALE >> With the time of possession skewed in the completely opposite direction, the Wildcats knew full well the chances they would get were that much more valuable.Even though they didn’t run many plays in the grand scheme of things, they made sure it was a red-clad party in the end zone time and time again on Saturday afternoon.Led by a five-touchdown day from junior running back Wyatt Coppini, the Ferndale High football team claimed its first win in convincing fashion with a 62-30 …last_img

Lackey trip report: Hoorn Mega – Game Over

first_imgGeocaching HQ staff will attend dozens of Mega and Giga-Events around the world, shaking hands, sharing stories of adventure, and of course, geocaching. Heather M (Heather Feather) is the Community Volunteer Special Programs Manager for Mega and Giga-Events at Geocaching HQ. She recently traveled to the Netherlands to attend the Hoorn Mega-Event. Here’s her trip recap.When planning for any trip, one of the first things I do is check out the weather report. (Heather Feather checks the weather!). For my visit to the Netherlands for the Hoorn Mega, the report was a little concerning: chilly, rainy, with winds up to 64km/h (40mph). It was March in North Holland after all, but those were still dodgy conditions. Luckily, the event details indicated an indoor homebase, but geocachers rarely hide from the elements. With all my favorite weatherproof staples and plenty of lackey tags packed, I prepared for a rugged weekend. Once my plane landed, the first item on my agenda was to meet up with the event host crew. As manager of Mega-Events at HQ, this is something I look forward to the most: meeting the faces behind the emails. After years of communicating with this crew, I was excited to finally meet them in real life. As I entered our meeting spot, my eyes caught a big table of smiling faces and bright red shirts. I knew I was in the right place! The Hoorn Cache Event is led by four core teams: Mar.Co, H.P.M, Team JoWi, and de Goesjes. Their efforts are supported abundantly by dedicated friends and volunteers. As we sat together that evening, I was eager to hear more history about the event, the location, and the team members. They had worked on events together for several years, and this was their 8th and final swan song. With the bittersweet theme of “Game Over,” this final event weekend was to throw one last celebration of their community, to honor their love for geocaching and their years together.  I was treated to a behind-the-scenes tour before the kick-off event started. With just an hour before people were to arrive, the team appeared calm and in great spirits. It was clear that their years of experience helped them hone in on many ways to make the event better and more enjoyable for their guests (and themselves!). For example, they designed their lab cache activities in clever ways that allowed large groups to participate at once and interact with each other. No small feat! Also, the layout of the space and specially designated areas was thoughtful and flowed effectively (as shown later when filled with people). It’s often these small things that can make all the difference when hosting hundreds of people at once in a limited space, and I was impressed by their planning, and trusted that the weather forecast wouldn’t make a big impact on the outcome of this event. During the kick-off event and the “big day” I met so many lovely new people, and caught up with some familiar faces as well. During my conversations, one frequent thing that stuck out to me was that there were so many truly connected cachers. It’s not uncommon for me to hear of the “geocaching widow” scenario – when one partner isn’t as into caching as the other person. With many of the folks I spoke with, it was actually the opposite. One couple said that they often cache together, but sometimes the ladies go off and do their own caching trip, and the men do as well. A family of four shared how they go caching with their twin teenage sons (one loves climbing caches and the other…does not). I loved hearing them share how they all found their own balance, showing that there are many ways to make geocaching your own. These are just a few examples of how people mentioned to me how they have been able to create meaningful connections with each other in unique and personalized ways. Be still my heart! When out caching, I met up with a crew of geobicyclists. I’d been stumped at a gadget cache earlier, and they kindly offered to assist. Back at the cache, they retold great stories of their group’s caching adventures over the years. Their fun stories remind me of the countless ways people are positively impacted by geocaching as a community through fun, zany excursions. That might seem obvious, but at HQ we often miss out hearing about the good times like these. It’s our job to help geocachers, so we often hear about issues and problems that need solving. When all is going well, people are out geocaching instead of telling us about how much fun they are having – and that’s the way it should be! Yet, sometimes I forget how geocaching really impacts people. At the Hoorn Mega, I met people who were eager to share stories of their amazing moments. It reminded me that the game is bigger than guidelines and the technical glitches I usually respond to in emails. It reminded me that geocaching is really about meaningful relationships, shared experiences, and supportive communities. I’ll fondly remember this last Hoorn Mega as a representative of the close-knit communities that can develop through this unique game/hobby/lifestyle. Finally, a big thank you to each of the event hosts for welcoming me into their fold for the weekend. I felt like family, which is more than I ever could have expected. See you on the trails!Share with your Friends:More SharePrint RelatedLackey trip report: GeoWoodstock XVIIJuly 2, 2019In “Community”An inside look into Mega and Giga EventsAugust 27, 2019In “News”Finding friends at Belgium Mega-EventSeptember 17, 2019In “Community”last_img read more

Manchester City paint Premier League blue with 2nd title in 3 years

first_imgSamir Nasri and Vincent Kompany scored the goals for Man CityManchester City won the Premier League for the second time in three seasons on Sunday, completing its campaign with a comfortable 2-0 victory over West Ham that lacked any of the drama of its previous title.The Engineer Who Fixed Man City’s WoesUnlike the stoppage-time comeback required in the 2012 title decider, goals either side of halftime by Samir Nasri and Vincent Kompany provided a more serene end to what had been an exhilarating season.”You can’t repeat what happened last time,” City goalkeeper Joe Hart said. “This year, we’ve really come on strong at the end when we needed to.”Two years ago, City won the title on goal difference ahead of neighbor Manchester United after coming from behind to beat Queens Park Rangers on the final day. Sunday’s victory, though, meant Liverpool’s 2-1 win over Newcastle at Anfield was meaningless as City finished two points above the Merseyside club.As soon as the final whistle was blown, thousands of fans flooded onto the Etihad Stadium pitch, setting off blue flares. For a club that has spent so much time in the shadow of United – last year’s champion – it was just the fourth time in its 134-year history that fans could celebrate a league title.Just 15 years ago, City was playing in the third tier of English football, but the club’s fortunes were transformed after the influx of Abu Dhabi cash following a 2008 takeover.Making this victory all the sweeter is the fact that United, which beat City to the title by 11 points last May, ended this campaign in seventh place after imploding in the post-Alex Ferguson era.advertisementAlthough City spent just 15 days at the summit during a campaign when the lead changed hands 25 times, Manuel Pellegrini’s side surged to the top when it mattered most. The 60-year-old Chilean is ending his first season in English football as a double winner, having already won the League Cup victory over Sunderland in March.However, the league title looked out of reach for City just weeks ago after losing to Liverpool at Anfield. However, Liverpool collapsed toward the end with a loss to Chelsea and a draw at Crystal Palace which meant City only needed a draw at the Etihad to secure the title.But after an edgy start, Nasri scored with a shot from outside the area in the 39th minute and Vincent Kompany added the second from close range shortly after the break to let fans celebrate for much of the second half.”Liverpool’s game against Chelsea, I think that’s the twist of the season,” Nasri said.All City required was a draw, but after an edgy start this energetic and attacking team seized on the opportunity to finish the season in style. Against an uninspiring West Ham, City was in complete control, calmly knocking the ball around the pitch.However easily City unpicked the West Ham defense, finding a route to goal was proving more difficult. David Silva, so dynamic in this title-winning side, lashed the ball over from distance and Aleksandar Kolarov had a long-range strike tipped over by goalkeeper Adrian.But the goal that settled nerves in the stands came in the 39th minute, with Yaya Toure teeing up Nasri, who took two touches before curling the shot into the net off the inside of the post.Although Silva was denied by the woodwork in stoppage time, City’s second came just four minutes into the second half. From a corner, the ball bounced off striker Edin Dzeko, and the unmarked Kompany swept in City’s 102nd league goal this season from close range.The captain slid across the pitch in celebration, and the party truly started in the stadium. Unlike the rollercoaster season finale against Queens Park Rangers here two years ago, it was job done for City.West Ham was never going to spoil these celebrations, and City is at the pinnacle of English football once again. The challenge now is retaining the trophy for the first time, and replicating the electrifying domestic form in Europe to conquer the Champions League.These title celebrations, though, could be short-lived in the City boardroom, with UEFA on the verge of imposing sanctions on the club for overspending in breach of Financial Fair Play rules.last_img read more

New Traffic Ticket Amnesty Starts Monday

first_img A new 45-day amnesty for persons with outstanding traffic tickets gets underway on Monday (Nov. 27). Story Highlights “The Bill will facilitate the suspension of the relevant section of the Road Traffic Act to enable motorists holding unpaid traffic tickets that have become a matter before the courts to pay them at the offices of Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ),” he said. State Minister for National Security, Senator the Hon. Pearnel Charles Jr., who piloted the Bill in the Senate, explained that following the previous three-month amnesty, which ended on October 31, motorists had appealed for additional time to fulfil their obligations. A new 45-day amnesty for persons with outstanding traffic tickets gets underway on Monday (Nov. 27).Motorists with tickets issued from September 1, 2010 to October 31, 2017 can pay them without repercussion up to January 13, 2018.On Friday (November 24), the Senate approved the Road Traffic (Temporary Ticket Amnesty Number 2) Act 2017, which facilitates the new period of amnesty. The Bill was passed in the Lower House on November 14.State Minister for National Security, Senator the Hon. Pearnel Charles Jr., who piloted the Bill in the Senate, explained that following the previous three-month amnesty, which ended on October 31, motorists had appealed for additional time to fulfil their obligations.As with previous amnesties, Senator Charles Jr. said the objectives are to enhance revenue administration and collection; allow persons to clear their driving record; improve the efficiency of the courts; and reduce the number of traffic cases before the courts.“The Bill will facilitate the suspension of the relevant section of the Road Traffic Act to enable motorists holding unpaid traffic tickets that have become a matter before the courts to pay them at the offices of Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ),” he said.It will also allow for the suspension of the relevant sections of the Judicature Parish Courts Act and the Justice of the Peace Jurisdiction Act, thereby preventing the issuance of warrants by a parish court judge or a Justice of the Peace for the arrest of traffic ticket holders. In addition, motorists holding unpaid traffic tickets will be offered an amnesty in relation to penalty points being recorded against their driver’s licence.The State Minister noted that during the amnesty, motorists will not be denied the option of contesting their tickets in court, however, they will be required to abide by the decision of the court and cannot thereafter utilize the amnesty offer.He urged motorists to use the period to become compliant, warning that those who do not avail themselves of the amnesty “will be vigorously pursued by the strong arm of the law after the amnesty period is concluded.”The State Minister informed that the monies collected will be used to purchase vehicles, equipment and technology for the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF); strengthen the cyber security network; upgrade the ticket management system used by the TAJ and the JCF; modernize the methods used by the Ministry of Transport and Mining to enforce the new Traffic Act; and modernise the court system and hire more judges.In the meantime, Mr. Charles Jr. informed that security will be beefed up at the collectorates and additional cashiers put in place to deal with the large influx of motorists anticipated.The previous amnesty period, which ran from August 2 to October 31, resulted in payments of over $590 million from the processing of more than 260,000 tickets. In addition, 45,000 calls were made to the Traffic Amnesty Call Centre.Up to December 31, 2016, outstanding traffic tickets totaled in excess of $2.84 billion.last_img read more

Serena Williams Loses in Qatar Open Finals Gains No

Serena Williams, the future No. 1 player in the world come Monday, was defeated in the Qatar Open finals on Sunday by defending champion Victoria Azarenka 7-6 (6), 2-6, 6-3.Azarenka ended her 10-match losing streak against Williams to earn her 16th title. She had not defeated Williams since 2009, and had a 1-11 record against her going into Sunday’s final. But Azarenka has been on a roll lately, winning her last 14 matches, which included her second Australian Open title.“It feels incredible,” Azarenka told The Associated Press. “You know, this tournament is really great. … It had such a strong field going into it, and I’m really glad that in the end of the week I’m the one who’s holding the trophy.”Williams stumbled from the beginning of the match. She was unable to impose her fierce serve throughout the first set. Williams had a dismal 26 unforced errors. Despite her horrific start, Williams managed to stay in the first set of the game with a set point at 6-5 in the tiebreaker. Ultimately, Azarenka won the first set after Williams hit a poor forehand into the net.Williams managed to bounce back in the second set, capitalizing on her potent serve and forehand. Azarenka only managed to hit 39 percent of her first serves.In the final set, Williams had control of the first game. Azarenka fell behind quickly 0-30, but administered a comeback to take a 3-0 lead. Williams made one last effort to stay in the match by saving a match point at 5-2, but Azarenka clinched the victory when Williams hit a forehand wide.“I just wanted to fight and give it my best, give myself every opportunity I can,” Azarenka said.Williams saluted Azarenka’s performance, but it was apparent that she was not at her best. She was still recovering from a right ankle injury that bothered her at the Australian Open and appeared to be managing a cold. Williams needed three sets to beat Petra Kvitova in the quarterfinals.“This whole week, I just don’t think I played my best tennis, and I was fighting every match,” Williams told  The Associated Press. “I can’t play that quality game against a top player like Victoria. I have to be able to pick up my game, and I wasn’t able to do that today. I stayed at a two out of a 10, and I can’t play that low.”However, Williams smiled when asked about her return to No. 1 ranking in the world.“It was such a long journey, and after winning Wimbledon and the U.S. Open and the (WTA) Championships, I thought, I just don’t think I can win anymore,” she said. “I don’t know what it takes to be No. 1. So it was awesome to come here and achieve that goal.”Williams could easily lose the ranking next week in Dubai to Azarenka if she does not make it to the finals and Azarenka does.Another rematch would put the top two players in the world against each other once again. read more
