Windies coach banned from first 2 ODIs for ICC code breach

first_imgDubai: West Indies coach Stuart Law has been suspended for his team’s first two One-day Internationals (ODI) against India – on October 21 and 24 – following a breach of the ICC Code of Conduct during the second Test in Hyderabad.Besides the ban, Law was penalised 100 percent of his match fee and slapped three demerit points. This means his accumulated demerit points reached four within a 24-month period leading to the two-match ban.Law had previously received a 25 percent match fee fine and one demerit point in May 2017 for a similar transgression during the Dominica Test against Pakistan.“Law was found guilty of breaching Level 2 Article 2.7 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to ‘Public criticism of, or inappropriate comment in relation to an incident occurring in an international match or any Player, Player Support Personnel, Match Official or team participating in any international match, irrespective of when such criticism or inappropriate comment is made,” an ICC statement read.The incident took place on Sunday afternoon when Law, following the dismissal of Kieran Powell, went to the TV umpire’s room and made inappropriate comments.He then walked to the fourth umpire’s area and in the presence of the players, again directed inappropriate comments at the fourth official.“On Monday, Law admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by ICC match referee Chris Broad and, as such, there was no need for a formal hearing,” the statement further read.The charges were levelled by on-field umpires Bruce Oxenford and Ian Gould, third umpire Nigel Llong and fourth official Nitin Menon.

Governor Reynolds tours downtown Mason City to see recent accomplishments

first_imgMASON CITY — Governor Kim Reynolds and Lt. Governor Adam Gregg met with members of Main Street Mason City late Thursday afternoon, talking about the Empower Rural Iowa Initiative as well as touring the downtown area to see recent accomplishments and future goals of the downtown area.Reynolds says from the new businesses in Southbridge Mall, the new Multi-Purpose Arena, and the renovations downtown, it’s exciting to see what’s happening in Mason City.   “Impressive, exciting, I love the passion. I love the redevelopment that you’re seeing to the mall and how they’re thinking outside of the box and being innovative about bringing people downtown. The ice arena is phenomenal, it’s just incredible to see the young kids out there, and really the opportunity to through the tournaments to bring a lot of families and communities to Mason City, and that gives you an opportunity to showcase the great things that are happening here.” Reynolds says she talked with Main Street Mason City board members about ways to create more housing opportunities.   “How we can continue to look for opportunities to incentivize upper housing development, to take a look at these old buildings that we have that have so much character and they’re structurally sound, and how can we make sure that we’re renovating and rehabilitating them, and finding ways that we can do that that makes it cost effective for business owners to go in there and use the existing facility.” Reynolds says the state needs to take a closer look to make sure economic development programs are meeting their goals and expectations.  “A lot of times it’s taking existing programs that we have like the Challenge Grant and maybe providing a little bit more flexibility. So are we too narrow in what we’re using those grants for, and is there an opportunity moving forward to change them up just a little bit and provide some more flexibility that can really meet the needs of people that are willing to invest.”Reynolds made her comments to KGLO News shortly after talking to members of the Mohawk high school hockey team as they were holding practice at the Mason City Multi-Purpose Arena.last_img read more

Is a Food Truck Park In Store for Sandy Hook?

first_imgThough the National Park Service is interested in growing its food truck program, Yun was adamant that it would be in combination with a newly designed, permanent food-service facility, “to preserve some of the magic of the Sea Gull’s Nest.” Maintenance to the site was officially off the table once the concessionaire was unable to fund the cost of those repairs. A settlement with the park service was sought, upon which the contract was cancelled by mutual agreement later that year. The city of Asbury Park has also embraced the concept. But according to the National Park Service, the dilapidated structure’s demolition has left a blank canvas for something new to rise in its place. The development would have to be something that could structurally withstand a weather event similar to Sandy, or possibly, something that could outrun it. The Sandy-inflicted damage to the Sea Gull’s Nest was substantial but, according to Yun, at first the park service believed the structure could be rehabilitated. MIDDLETOWN –Super Storm Sandy claimed another victim this month when the iconic Sandy Hook watering hole and eatery, the Sea Gull’s Nest, was torn down. Yun noted the National Park Service has already implemented asimilar setup – a permanent and resilient structure with food truck selections– at its properties in Jamaica Bay, Queens and Staten Island. Daphne Yun, Gateway National Recreation Area public affairsspecialist, did not rule out an expansion of Sandy Hook’s food truck offerings. “My favorite food truck area is North Eats,” Middletown resident Ed Norris said near the site of a bulldozed Sea Gull’s Nest, referencing Asbury Park’s outdoor boardwalk food court, featuring a rotating cast of some of the area’s favorite food truck vendors. “They always have a good variety and you can’t beat the setting. If something like that could happen here, I’m sure it would be popular.” However, Yun added that the design of a fully-operational,dine-in restaurant setting would need significant tweaking if the facilityhopes to survive another catastrophic weather event like Sandy.center_img Expanded food truck offerings are being discussed, as is the construction of a more resilient and possibly removable, facility. The park service said its focus is to design with future severe weather events in mind. Photo by Chris Rotolo That was until an engineer was brought in to evaluate thesite in 2013 and determined the foundation to be irreparably damaged. The food truck craze has found a home in the Two River-area,with popular springtime events like the Middletown High School South Food TruckFest, Keansburg’s Taste of Spring Food Truck and Craft Beer Festival and thelarger, more diverse Jersey Shore Food Truck festival at Monmouth Park emergingas annual seasonal staples. “We definitely want to have some kind of structure there, onethat meets the needs of the beach patrons and has some of the same magic, butat the same time it will need to be more resilient. That could mean somethingwith a flow-through design, or something with components that can be removed,”Yun said. “We have had a couple of food trucks there over the past fewyears. It was something we started experimenting with in 2014 and we’d like tocontinue, and possibly grow that model in cooperation with some kind ofstructure,” Yun said. “This is a wistful moment in our hurricane recovery process,” Sandy Hook superintendent Jen Nersesian said in a media release. “Many good times were had watching the sunset from that deck. But it is a step forward to the next stage of building back, and building stronger and smarter for the future.” “We’ve had to consider the future while redesigning theseareas,” Yun said. “Altogether we have 60 miles of coastline that suffered lotsof damage. Resilient designs have been the key for us.” This article was first published in the May 16-22, 2019 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

Kootenay Cup within reach for Nelson after amazing showing in Kimberley

first_imgTeammate Dylan Gyr was close behind, earning silver (classic) and bronze (skate), while Rohan Moola persevered admirably through equipment difficulties to finish 5th and 6th. Ira McKimm, skiing as a Juvenile, pulled off two very impressive silver-medal finishes against national-level competition. Being on the road didn’t hurt the Nelson Nordic Ski Club as the Heritage City club experienced some great results during the Kootenay Cup Cross Country Race this past weekend in Kimberley.Under dazzling sunshine and brisk East Kootenay cold, over a dozen Nelson-area Nordic skiers competed against skiers from BC, Alberta, the Yukon and Washington State. In temperatures barely reaching minus 15 degrees Celsius (the minimum permitted for racing) seven young racers, aged 6-15, drew on their training to give some impressive and gritty performances.In the Atom Girls category, Aleah Smith brought home a 2nd place in her classic race (in a field of 20 skiers), and a 4th place in the skate race. Peewee Boys Kaelum Smith and Ollie Gyr earned themselves 5th and 6th places respectively (out of 15) in classic, and 6th and 4th in skate. In the Midget category Felix Barron clinched gold in the classic race and silver in the skate race. Eight adults from Nelson Nordic Ski Club also competed. In the Masters II Women’s category, Louise Poole came first in both the 20 km classic and the 15 km skate events.In the Masters II Men’s category, the Nelson team “owned” the podium, with George Edney just edging out Kim Poole and Jay McKimm for a one-two-three finish in the 15 km skate event.In the 20 km classic race, Kim Poole and George Edney came second and third respectively. Skiing in the somewhat shorter-distance Recreational categories and earning chocolate medals for their efforts, were Jennie Barron (gold), Sarah Waterhouse (silver), Janet Connolly (bronze), Erik Leslie (silver), and Kurstun Smith (bronze). The Jackrabbit and Track Attack skiers sincerely thank all their coaches – especially Kaj Gyr and Roger Fontaine, for their attention and encouragement at this event – and the hard-working wax tech dads, Erik and Kurstun.The team was also grateful to Kimberley Nordic Club members, who put on a generous and delicious spread of food for the racers on both days. Racing was not the only focus of the weekend. The skiers also enjoyed snow skating, hot tubbing, and a banquet with great food and dancing. “Just hanging out together was the best part,” said one young skier. The Kimberley races were the first two of the 2016 Kootenay Cup series, sponsored by TECK.The third set of Kootenay Cup races go this Saturday here in Nelson. All local Nordic skiers are warmly invited to join in the fun.To register, go to Zone4.ca and search for “Nelson Kootenay Cup”. Deadline is Friday Jan 15, 8 pm.last_img read more
