The performance has been hailed as Jamaica’s “best performance in the tournament ever”, with the local contingent scoring 782 points, behind top guns the United States (914), England (867) and Australia 818), respectively. Jamaica staved off challengers from highly rated Italy, South Africa and Venezuela teams for their top-four among the seven countries which competed.

Husthwaite, who finished second in the main Master Class event with a total 207 out of a possible 230 birds, said: “What they (Jamaica) achieved in Texas is like David beating Goliath. “They beat a team from Italy filled with world and national champions.

“He has done so much for the football program at Canyon and brought so much recognition to this community and the city of Santa Clarita,” said Ken Wheeler, who worked on the committee. But for many, Welch’s accomplishments go beyond his work on the AstroTurf field. “The bottom line is he’s a great teacher, not just in football but in life,” said Joe Zacharia, a defensive lineman for the Canyon Cowboys. “He taught me how to be a good man.” Still, the decision didn’t come without debate. Coach Cesar Arevalo faulted the Hart district for failing to publicize the stadium decision on the agenda. CANYON COUNTRY – Having put Santa Clarita on the sports map with a state football championship, Harry Welch will see his own name put on a map, as well. The Hart High School District board voted unanimously Wednesday night to name the newly remodeled Canyon High football stadium for the veteran educator and legendary coach. “When you quantify the number of kids Welch has touched in 37 years times the population of students at Canyon High, I think that warrants the naming of that stadium after him,” school board member Steve Sturgeon said. After a Daily News blogger suggested naming the remodeled Canyon High stadium for Welch, Canyon Country residents formed a committee to push the idea. It wasn’t long before hundreds of petitions and e-mails started flying. “If more teachers would have known, they would have been here,” Arevalo said. The Welch committee also failed to enlist faculty and staff members in the process, something Arevalo said he thinks could have altered the selection of Welch as the stadium honoree. “There are coaches that have worked longer than Welch, and consecutively,” Arevalo said. But for the majority of former students, team parents, friends and colleagues that crowded the Hart meeting the decision was a “no-brainer.” “As a 5-foot-3-inch, 115-pound football player, I wasn’t exactly the star of the team,” said Dan Garcia, who formerly played for the Cowboys. “But when coach Welch pointed out one of my tackles to the entire football team, that meant the world to me. “You are not just honoring him today, but every player who has ever worn a Cowboy jersey.” firstname.lastname@example.org (661) 257-5254160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

In April 2012, the B.C. government launched a two-year pilot project to expand the types of workers eligible for the PNP in the northeast region only.What makes this pilot project particularly unique to our region is that in all other parts of the province, the PNP only applies to those in the hospitality industry, but in the northeast, it applies to every sector across the board, such as retail and construction,“We would be in desperate shape if we didn’t have the ability in the Fort St. John region to compliment our Canadian workers with additional foreign workers,” concludes Bannerman. The pilot project was set to expire on March 31, 2015 but is available for an additional year.“Our intention is that we want to make this a permanent program as we move further along, and we know that the northwest, as they start developing some of the LNG projects and that sort of thing, they’re going to run into the same kind of critical employment problems we have in the northeast,” explains Pimm.Owner of the Fort St. John Canadian Tire Ross Bannerman is welcoming the news with open arms.- Advertisement -“In an area like Fort St. John, we always struggle to find the workers we need to properly staff our store and serve our customers,” says Bannerman. “The ability to hire and bring in Temporary Foreign Workers gives us the ability to top up and at least get us close to where we need to be for employment.”“We never stop hiring our Canadian workers.”The PNP is a program offering accelerated immigration to foreign workers and entrepreneurs who intend to live permanently in B.C. while already demonstrating the ability to become economically established and contribute significantly to the provincial economy.Advertisement
George Grahams insists it no coincidence that Arsenal have suffered from persistent injury problems in recent seasons.The Gunners seem to suffer more than their Premier League rivals when it comes to long-term injuries and Mesut Ozil, Olivier Giroud and Aaron Ramsey are among a host of stars currently on the treatment table.“I think they have got to look into it,” said former Arsenal manager Graham, speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“Arsene Wenger has always been revolutionary in the treatment of players and the conditioning of players. It is not just this year or last year, it is the last five years, they have had problems with injuries. They are non contact injuries – pulls and strains.“When you look at it, some of these players have been out for months. They have to be looking into the background of it.”

WOODLAND HILLS – John Waite, former frontman for the 1970s British rock band the Babys, got the Warner Ranch Park concert series off to a grooving start Sunday in front of thousands of music fans eager to welcome back the summer ritual. The set list for Waite and his backing band included his 1984 hit “Missing You,” a song written from the perspective of someone pretending not to miss a former love. “He’s got a unique sort of soulful voice for a white guy,” said Robert Fedor, 45, who makes the weekly concert in the park a summer tradition for him and his family. His 5-year-old daughter, Madison, and her two friends didn’t care that the music was a little before their time. They got up and danced while most of the audience was content to groove in the lawn chairs they brought to the outdoor venue.

Finally, they came to rest in a stable fashioned just for the procession. Charlotte Bonner, 85, joined in the procession for the first time with two friends. “I wanted to see what it was like,” said the Sylmar resident. “I thought it was unusual. It was interesting. It is a new way to celebrate the birth of Jesus.’ Patty Jimenez attended the event with several developmentally disabled adults to share with them a custom she’s known since she was a child growing up in Mexico. MISSION HILLS – Revelers joined Saturday in a candlelight procession at the historic Andres Pico Adobe in Mission Hills, re-enacting Mary and Joseph’s pilgrimage to find shelter before the birth of Jesus. On a chilly night, backlit by the moon, dozens of people took part in the ancient Mexican custom known as Las Posadas – Spanish for “shelter.” “We’re keeping tradition alive, … reliving history,” said Midge Gisel, president of the San Fernando Valley Historical Society, which organized the event. “It’s a labor of love. This is a community outreach.” Friends huddled together to keep warm, children wore ponchos to shield themselves from the cold, and people warmed their stomachs with coffee, hot chocolate and pan dulce, Mexican sweet buns. “For them, it’s something new,” she said. “I felt like I was back home.” Children also were treated to a visit from Santa Claus and a piata-breaking party. But most importantly, they were treated to a special lesson. “I wanted them to learn the story behind the birth of Jesus Christ,” said Gloria Alvarenga, who attended the event with three of her children. “Christmas isn’t only about presents.” Angie Valencia-Martinez, (805) 583-7604 firstname.lastname@example.org 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
