Endicott Mayor addresses trash guidelines mishap

first_imgThe guidelines were sent over to members of Endicott Code Enforcement by supervisor to Endicott Code Enforcement and Fire Marshall Brian Botsford. “[ECC] thought [Botsford] wanted it on right away because he said he wanted to enforce it, and so they put it on for him to enforce it, but he wanted to wait until he had a chance to pass it out so that’s why we took it down last night,” Jackson said.  The post, which listed guidelines from March 2019, sparked reaction from residents of the village, many of them voicing frustration and concern. ENDICOTT (WBNG) – Village of Endicott Mayor Linda Jackson says it was a communication gap that led to trash guidelines being posted on the village’s Facebook page. Jackson told 12 News the trash guidelines are not new, but village will start enforcing the rules to help make the area a better place to live. “We’re trying to all work together to just clean up the town, attract more people, attract more businesses and see where we go from there,” Jackson said. “I think Endicott should do the same thing with their yards and wit their properties. Is this how I want to portray it? Is this how I want people to think how I live?” Jackson said residents will not receive violations or tickets, but friendly reminders about the steps Endicott is taking.last_img read more

Better airlift needed for Caribbean, says tourism chief

first_imgJosef Forstmayr, president of the CHTA. Photo credit: jamaica-gleaner.comPARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas — Despite the region spending millions of dollars to secure airlift to the Caribbean, ticket prices are still too high and remain insufficient to sustain the industry, according to a tourism leader. Josef Forstmayr, president of the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA), addressing the opening of Caribbean Marketplace at the glittering Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island in The Bahamas, asserted: “There are no ‘drive-ins’ in the Caribbean – most of our guests arrive by air.”He estimated in 2010 the Caribbean governments “collectively paid US$45 million to secure airlift – only to find that our airlift is still inadequate and way too expensive for our visitors.”The CHTA president noted intra-Caribbean tourism “once represented 13% of the region’s tourism; as much as Canada. The combined population of Caribbean countries is 40 million. However, due to the lack of a competitive and truly regional airline, regional tourism has been suffocated by outrageous ticket prices and a cumbersome and ill-conceived network.”The CHTA chief also criticized bureaucratic procedures in the region: “Caribbean nationals cannot travel freely between their countries without being subjected to visas, long immigration lines and other bureaucratic indulgences that stifle any sense of hospitality, the Caribbean’s trademark.” Caribbean News Now Tweet Share Share 29 Views   one commentcenter_img Share Sharing is caring!

FIFA new rules: Ighalo in dilemma over Man U deal

first_imgRelatedPosts Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ EPL: Crystal Palace stun sloppy Man U EPL: Red Devils attack Palace Odion Ighalo’s future with Manchester United remained totally up in the air as Fifa’s latest contract guidelines add to his already difficult dilemma. The life-long United fan arrived at the club in February on a six-month loan deal from Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua, seamlessly slotting in at Old Trafford with four goals in eight games. The 30-year-old has on numerous occasions made clear his desire to stay at United, though his contract due to expire at the end of May and he has yet to be offered a permanent deal. With the footballing world currently at a standstill due to the coronavirus pandemic, Fifa announced on Tuesday they approve of plans to relax the regulations on contract expirations. In a statement, Fifa said: “With the current suspension of play in most countries, it is now obvious that the current season will not end when people thought it would. “Therefore, it is proposed that contracts be extended until such time that the season does actually end.” Fifa’s guidelines are not legally binding, however: if Ighalo is to stay at United, a deal will likely have to be worked out between the two clubs. This creates problems as Shanghai are ready to offer Ighalo a £400,000-a-week, two-year contract to return to China. Ighalo’s current deal is worth a reported £300,000 per week, a salary United would most likely be unwilling to pay – and matching Shanghai’s latest offer looks nigh-on impossible. Simply put, Ighalo would have to take a significant pay cut should he stay in Manchester, and how much game-time the Nigerian would actually get remains to be seen. While his form has been formidable, he has been playing in the absence of the injured Marcus Rashford who will surely return to the team as he regains fitness. Would Ighalo really risk his bumper contract to sit on the bench? Would United want to splash £15m for a 30-year-old on astronomical wages? Ighalo, after finding himself in a whirlwind dream at United, now finds himself in a real dilemma.Tags: FIFAManchester UnitedMarcus RashfordOdion IghaloShanghai Shenhualast_img read more

Taylor has faith in Rooney Rule

first_imgPlayers union chief Gordon Taylor is convinced the PFA’s equivalent of the ‘Rooney Rule’ will address the lack of black representation in the management ranks. Press Association In conjuction with the Football League, the PFA is pushing ahead with its radical new Coaching Fair Play plan. Taylor hopes it will help sidestep the natural conservatism he feels has prevented the large percentage of black players in the professional game transferring into anything like an acceptable number of managers. There are presently five black managers from the 92 clubs and Taylor knows it is not enough. And thanks to Cyrus Mehri, who drove through the Rooney Rule in NFL, he feels a breakthrough has been achieved. “People are always more comfortable with other people who are the same as them; language, colour. It is almost defensive,” said Taylor. center_img “Owners have been more than happy to have black players on the pitch, and black managers from abroad such as Ruud Gullit and Jean Tigana, but the overall figures are not in line with numbers on the pitch. It is not going to happen overnight but we need more representation in senior positions. We need role models for black managers the same as we had for players. “It is a shock that racism is still a topic when we have made such progress but as we have seen with the crowd trouble over the weekend, we should never dream of slacking up on any of the issues we have made progress with, because the minute we do, it all comes out of the bottle again.” The final decision over whether the Coaching Fair Play Plan will be implemented rests with the 72 Football League chairman. Taylor is convinced this ‘bottom up’ approach is the correct way forward, just as it was with the new Financial Fair Play regulations. Talks with Football League chairman Greg Clarke have been constructive, and all parties see the benefit in an increasingly desperate drive for success. “The point has been made time and time again that clubs are paying fortunes in settlements for managers who have hardly had two minutes to succeed in the job,” said Taylor. “We are obsessed with instant success. It is like someone rushing into a supermarket to find a ready-made manager. You would think clubs would be pleased to see a panel of suitable applicants for a particular job, rather than it being done on a nod and a wink or some agent saying who is available. “If we are to encourage players to stay in the game, become the next generation of managers and work with UEFA to have a consistent qualification. You need to be able to give people a belief that having qualified they will be given a fair chance to get employment.” last_img read more

Patel the hero as Challengers surviveDhoni’s devastating display

first_imgROYAL Challengers Bangalore’s resurgence continued despite MS Dhoni’s heroics as Parthiv Patel’s final-ball direct hit earned the Indian Premier League’s bottom side a thrilling one-run win over leaders Chennai Super Kings.Patel (53) had underpinned the Challengers’ innings as they made 161-7, with Deepak Chahar, Ravindra Jadeja and Dwayne Bravo each taking two wickets apiece for Chennai.Dale Steyn then claimed two dismissals in the opening over of Chennai’s innings and, at 28-4 at the end of the powerplay, they had it all to do when Dhoni (84 not out) arrived, yet the 37-year-old dragged his team to the brink of victory with 24 runs off the first five balls of the final over.That meant Chennai needed two from the final ball to win with Dhoni on strike, yet Umesh Yadav’s delivery went through to Patel behind the stumps and he beat Shardul Thakur’s dive to run him out, clinching a third win in four for Bangalore.Du Plessis atones for drop in the fieldDhoni’s team started brightly, with Bangalore captain Virat Kohli out in the third over, yet Faf du Plessis looked to have made a costly error when he misjudged AB de Villiers’ shot to him at mid off and could only get his fingertips to the ball.De Villiers appeared in the mood when he reached 25 off 19 balls and he dispatched Jadeja’s shorter ball to the long-off boundary, but his compatriot did not put down another chance.It was one of two catches made by Du Plessis – who has now taken 10 in this year’s IPL – though his most impressive act was the role he played in removing Marcus Stoinis (14) as he shovelled the ball up to Dhruv Shorey while falling over the rope to claim a brilliant assist.Steyn sets the tone again as Dhoni’s effort comes up shortBangalore’s dismal start to the IPL campaign owed much to their feeble bowling attack, which has been rejuvenated since Steyn returned in a 10-run victory over Kolkata Knight Riders last time out.The Challengers had taken only three wickets in the powerplays of their first eight matches, but have now taken seven in their past two, with Steyn (2-29) and Yadav (2-47) laying the foundations again.Steyn accounted for Shane Watson, who edged to slip, and bowled Suresh Raina in the opening over, while De Villiers took routine catches off Yadav’s bowling to dismiss Du Plessis and Kedar Jadhav. That left Chennai 28-4, a position that ultimately proved too much to come back from despite Dhoni’s brilliance.Dhoni reached his half-century off 35 balls with one of his seven sixes. He then dragged his team into a position to triumph with three maximums in the final over – including one that went out of the stadium – but his failure to get bat on ball at the death allowed Patel to be the match-winner instead.last_img read more
