By Joe ChapmanTOP ranked clubs in their respective associations, Georgetown’s Colts and Victory Valley Royals of Linden started their campaign ominously when the 6th Brushes Classic invitational championship began with the Colts recording a comfortable 71-56 win over Pepsi Sonics, while Victory Valley Royals dominated Retrieve Raiders with a 96-56 blowout, Saturday night at the Mackenzie Sports Club hard court.Among those to witness these opening matches were President of the Guyana Amateur Basketball Federation, Nigel Hinds, along with Monty ‘Tanner’ Profitt, the tournament’s major sponsor; former senior national standouts, James and Mike Brusche and Auric Tappin, all of whom now reside in the United States and are home specifically for this sixth biennial tournament which has at stake $300,000 for the winners, $200,000 for the losing finalists, and $100,000 for third place, along with several other trophies and prizes.Nigel Hinds Financial Services are also on board as a sponsor of this year’s Brusches Classic. .Colts and Royals disposed of their opponents to move smoothly into the semifinals which will be played on Friday at the tournament venue–the MSC hard court.In their opening game it was the Sonics who took an early lead when the first quarter closed out with them ahead 17-14, but the response by Colts, the reigning National Club Champions was a 22-15 performance-run which pushed them into the lead at half time 36-32.Pressing on their familiar run at opponents resulted with the third quarter looking familiar for the Colts who maintained control 55-42 before the final scores reflected some solid performances as the Colts won 71-52. This was behind a top score of 16 points from Dennis Niles, who also collected seven rebounds and two steals, Timothy Thompson contributed 14 points while Shelroy Thomas and Shane Webster added 13 and 12 points, respectively.M.

A suicide bomber from the Islamic State (IS) group was a Jamaican-born British citizen who was detained at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.The British fighter who IS claimed detonated a suicide bomb against Iraqi forces outside Mosul was named in British media as Jamal al-Harith, who was detained at the United States base between 2002 and 2004.An image released by IS and published on Monday by the SITE Intelligence Group was confirmed as al-Harith by his brother Leon Jameson.A photograph shows him smiling, dressed in camouflage clothing and appearing to be sat in a vehicle with wires and switches in the background..Harith, a Muslim convert of Jamaican origin, who was born Ronald Fiddler, was jailed in Afghanistan by the ruling Taliban because he held a British passport.After the regime was toppled he was arrested by US troops in early 2002 and sent to Guantanamo, where he alleged experienced beatings and inhumane treatment.When he returned to Britain in 2004 he was briefly questioned by police and released without charge.Harith reportedly travelled to Turkey and crossed into Syria in April 2014.The following year his wife, Shukee Begum, travelled to Syria along with her five children in what she said was an effort to convince her husband to abandon IS.Harith is numbered among several Jamaicans who have been linked to radical Islam and terrorism.Shortly after the September 11 bombings in New York, another Jamaican, Richard Reid, attempted to blow up an airliner with a bomb in his shoe. He became known as the shoe Bomber.Rishard Reid known as the ‘Shoe Bomber’ is now serving a life sentenceReid is now serving a life sentence in a Colorado prison.el-Faisal deported from Britain and KenyaMuslim cleric Sheikh Abdullah el-Faisal was deported from Britain to Jamaica after serving several years in prison there for inciting terrorism.

by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow â€” Three of the four Wellington men charged in the Jan. 31 vandalism of 21 downtown Wellington properties will serve at least 30 days in the county jail.Eli Schmideler, 25,; Dylan Pacchelli, 21; and Cyrus Cunningham, 21, all of Wellington have pled guilty to criminal damage to property; and must pay restitution of $5,698 to several downtown property owners.â€œIt is my hope that people will realize that if you are going to vandalize downtown property or commit a similar offense, you will be spending some time in jail,â€ said Sumner County Attorney Kerwin Spencer. â€œHopefully, we will have fewer similar crimes in the future.â€A fourth person involved in the crime, Eugene McCormick, 21, of Wellington is still at large and has an outstanding arrest warrant.â€œI am asking help from the public in notifying us of the whereabouts of Mr. McCormick,â€ Spencer said.The three adults made the out-of-court plea agreement on Sept. 4. They were each sentenced to one year in the county jail with probation to be granted only after they served 30 days in the county jail.The incident took place on a Friday at 4:45 a.m. when the boys allegedly went to Wellington Wal-Mart and purchased cans of spray paint and markers to use to deface buildings and other property in Wellington. McCormick, Schmeidler, Cunningham and Pacchelli were accused of painting and writing on the building walls – inside and outside buildings.Three of the four admitted to entering the unoccupied “Old Smith Building” or Glasco building at 102 S. Washington owned by Karl Braddick of Dallas. They allegedly passed through the fenced off area and went inside through an unlocked door. Once there, they allegedly painted on the walls inside the building. The estimated cost to repair these walls was $1,255, according to the criminal complaint docket.The four also allegedly spray painted garage doors and building at a Tom McAlister building at 112 S. Washington which would cost $829 to remove or cover up.The list of other vandalized properties included:Security State Bank, 101 N. Washington – $100.Allison Rusk, 116 W.

By the way, how much has this all cost us taxpayers to go ‘hard-core’ on some graffiti?? I would much rather my tax dollars be spent on arresting, prosecuting and jailing drunk drivers, druggies, pedophiles, rapists, and murderers. Good thing Wellinghole is a small spot in the road, because if it was a city of any size, all the courts, prosecutors, and law enforcement would get done is go after graffiti artists! Meanwhile, our esteemed county attorney and our court system doesn’t think twice about a slap on the wrist for drunk drivers, drug users, drug pushers, rapists, murderers, and pedophiles. In fact, wasn’t it just last week that I read on this site about a criminal being let go due to a hospital stay and then he vamoosed on the county attorney’s office, and he is still at large??? Hmmm, glad Spencer has his priorities straight. Graffiti artists=hardened criminals and a danger to society. Drunks, druggies, rapists, murderers, and pedophiles=just misunderstood individuals that deserve as many chances as they need. However, I can’t lay all this on Spencer….evidently, a select few in this town “help” the county attorney’s office decide whether graffiti is more dangerous to society than the other mentioned offenses. If you ever want to be taken seriously Wellington, get real and focus on the bigger picture instead of always wallowing in the petty stuff. smh Report Reply 3 replies · active 309 weeks ago +20 Vote up Vote down Credence · 309 weeks ago Guest, I assume you would have no problem with some “graffiti artists” coming to your place and doing a little creative art work on your property. The act of vandalism or destruction of private/public property is unlawful, plain and simple. If we overlook this “art” and do not prosecute the offenders, how long will it be before they move to committing something a little more violent?

WASHINGTON (AP) — Protests were largely peaceful and the nation’s streets were calmer than they have been in days since the killing of George Floyd set off sometimes violent demonstrations against police brutality and injustice against African Americans.An earlier curfew and efforts by protesters to contain the violence prevented more widespread damage to businesses in New York City overnight. As of Wednesday morning, arrests grew to more than 9,000 nationwide since the unrest began in response to Floyd’s death May 25 in Minneapolis.There was a marked quiet compared with the unrest of the past few nights, which included fires and shootings in some cities. Many cities intensified their curfews, with authorities in Washington also ordering people off streets before sundown.A block away from the White House, thousands of demonstrators massed following a crackdown a day earlier when officers on foot and horseback aggressively drove peaceful protesters away from Lafayette Park, clearing the way for President Donald Trump to do a photo op at nearby St. John’s Church. Tuesday’s protesters faced law enforcement personnel who stood behind a black chain-link fence put up overnight to block access to the park.“Last night pushed me way over the edge,” said Jessica DeMaio, 40, of Washington, who attended a Floyd protest Tuesday for the first time. “Being here is better than being at home feeling helpless.”Pastors at the church prayed with demonstrators and handed out water bottles. The crowd remained in place after the city’s 7 p.m. curfew passed, defying warnings that the response from law enforcement could be even more forceful. But the people were peaceful, even polite. At one point, the crowd booed when a protester climbed a light post and took down a street sign. A chant went up: “Peaceful protest!”Pope Francis called for national reconciliation and peace, saying he has ’’witnessed with great concern the disturbing social unrest” in the United States in recent days.“My friends, we cannot tolerate or turn a blind eye to racism and exclusion in any form and yet claim to defend the sacredness of every human life,” the pope said during his weekly Wednesday audience, held in the presence of bishops due to coronavirus restrictions on gatherings.Trump, meanwhile, amplified his hard-line calls from Monday, when he threatened to send in the military to restore order if governors didn’t do it.“NYC, CALL UP THE NATIONAL GUARD,” he tweeted. “The lowlifes and losers are ripping you apart. Act fast!”Thousands of people remained in the streets of New York City Tuesday night, undeterred by an 8 p.m. curfew, though most streets were clear by early Wednesday. Midtown Manhattan was pocked with battered storefronts after Monday’s protests.Protests also passed across the U.S., including in Los Angeles, Miami, St. Paul, Minnesota, Columbia, South Carolina and Houston, where the police chief talked to peaceful demonstrators, vowing reforms.“God as my witness, change is coming,” Art Acevedo said. “And we’re going to do it the right way.”More than 20,000 National Guard members have been called up in 29 states to deal with the violence. Not in New York City, where Mayor Bill de Blasio has said he does not want the Guard, despite an offer from Gov. Andrew Cuomo.On Tuesday, Cuomo called what happened in the city Monday night “a disgrace.”“The NYPD and the mayor did not do their job,” Cuomo said at a briefing in Albany.He said his fellow Democrat underestimated the problem, and the nation’s largest police force was not deployed in sufficient numbers, though the city had said it doubled the usual police presence.Tuesday marked the eighth straight night of protests that began after a white Minneapolis police officer pressed his knee against Floyd’s neck while the handcuffed black man called out that he couldn’t breathe. The officer, Derek Chauvin, has been fired and charged with murder.The mother of George Floyd’s 6-year-old daughter, Gianna, said she wants the world to know that her little girl lost a good father.“I want everybody to know that this is what those officers took,” Roxie Washington said during a Minneapolis news conference, her daughter at her side. “I want justice for him because he was good. No matter what anybody thinks, he was good.”Some protesters framed the burgeoning movement as a necessity after seemingly incessant killings by police.“It feels like it’s just been an endless cascade of hashtags of black people dying, and it feels like nothing’s really being done by our political leaders to actually enact real change,” said Christine Ohenzuwa, 19, who attended a peaceful protest at the Minnesota state Capitol in St. Paul. “There’s always going to be a breaking point. I think right now, we’re seeing the breaking point around the country.”“I live in this state. It’s really painful to see what’s going on, but it’s also really important to understand that it’s connected to a system of racial violence,” she said.Meanwhile, governors and mayors, Republicans and Democrats alike, rejected Trump’s threat to send in the military, with some saying troops would be unnecessary and others questioning whether the government has such authority and warning that such a step would be dangerous.Such use of the military would mark a stunning federal intervention rarely seen in modern American history.A senior White House official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the president is not rushing to deploy the military and that his goal was to pressure governors to deploy more National Guard members.Nine states and the District of Columbia held presidential primaries on Tuesday, testing the nation’s ability to run elections while balancing a pandemic and sweeping social unrest. Joe Biden won hundreds more delegates, nearly enough to formally secure the Democratic presidential nomination.Also Tuesday, Minnesota opened an investigation into whether the Minneapolis Police Department has a pattern of discrimination against minorities.
Should they overcome that obstacle, the Nigerians will probably face 1976 champions Mouloudia Alger of Algeria, who reached the second-tier CAF Confederation Cup last-eight this season.North African clubs have dominated the Champions League for decades and the odds are against MFM, a club bankrolled by a popular pentecostal christian organisation.Defending champions Wydad Casablanca of Morocco, who edged Ahly 2-1 overall in the 2017 final, begin their defence against Stade Malien of Mali or Williamsville of the Ivory Coast.Malien won the Confederation Cup in 2009, but have never made the group stage of the Champions League in countless attempts.Williamsville are another club set to compete in the Champions League for the first time and inexperience could count against them when they tackle Stade.Record eight-time champions Ahly should not be unduly troubled by Kadiogo of Burkina Faso or Mounana of Gabon, who fell to Wydad this year after a first-round penalty shootout.After failing to reach the last two group stages, five-time title-holders TP Mazembe of the Democratic Republic of Congo should brush aside Ngaya of the Comoros or Songo of Mozambique.Share on: WhatsApp Plateau United FCJohannesburg, South Africa | AFP | Nigerian clubs Plateau United and Mountain of Fire and Miracles must clear intimidating hurdles if they are to reach the 2018 CAF Champions League group stage.The draw for the preliminary and first rounds in Cairo Wednesday delivered both debutants in the elite African club competition with tougher rivals than they would have wished for.National league winners Plateau drew fellow newcomers Eding Sport of Cameroon in the preliminary round with the two legs scheduled for successive weekends in February.Should United survive, they will confront Etoile Sahel of Tunisia, one of 10 teams in the 2018 line-up who have won the Champions League, during March.Etoile stunned overwhelming favourites Al Ahly of Egypt in the 2007 title decider by winning 3-1 in Cairo after a goalless first leg.Unlike Plateau, the Tunisian outfit are vastly experienced African campaigners and the only winners of all five present and past CAF club competitions.They reached the Champions League semi-finals this year, then imploded in the return match against Ahly and suffered a 6-1 thrashing in Alexandria.Etoile were among five former champions to receive byes into the round of 32 and will be expected to eliminate Plateau or Eding.Mountain of Fire and Miracles, whose club title is easily the most eye catching among the 59 title hopefuls, drew Real Bamako of Mali.
Wisil clocked a time of 11.86 seconds and carried the PNG flag proudly around the BSP stadium after her race to the chanting and cheering of 15,000 spectators.“I was a bit nervous before my race in front of my home crowd but I got settled in and focused on the race and winning,” said Wisil.Younis Bese from Fiji won silver with a time of 12.27 seconds while third place also went to another Fijian in Sisilia Seavula who clocked a time of 12.55 seconds.

Sergio Aguero made it 2-0 soon after, before he exchanged passes with Silva to fire home a third.

Aaron Ramsey’s clever back-heel flick gave the visitors the lead, but his side were handicapped by the departure of Francis Coquelin, sent off for two yellow cards. Spurs replied with goals from Toby Alderweireld and Harry Kane before Sanchez levelled late on.WATFORD 0 LEICESTER CITY 1 GOALS:- CHELSEA: TRAORE 39th.

BOURNEMOUTH: TAYLOR OG 28th; KING 70th; DANIELS 90th.Newcastle’s place in the Barclays Premier League is in danger after a dismal performance against fellow strugglers Bournemouth.
