The notion of “Senior Day,” a longstanding college athletic tradition, is nothing new to the Wisconsin women’s tennis team. But this year, as the squad prepares to graduate veteran Lexi Goldin, a small hitch has wandered into the time-honored ceremony.Saturday will mark the Badgers’ final home match of the year as the team looks to defeat a struggling Ohio State roster and bring a positive end to a regular season that has been marked by painful and stinging losses.The conundrum: Only six tennis players may participate in official singles matches and Goldin, as of late, has shuffled in and out of that cut. With team ace Caitlin Burke possibly slated to return from an injury hiatus this weekend, the cut turns even deeper as the lineup would shuffle down.When asked about this possible situation during a press conference Monday, UW head coach Patti Henderson seemed eager to keep her options open going into Saturday.”And if [Burke] was to be in, then very possibly that would be the case regarding Lexi Goldin as the lone senior on our squad,” Henderson said. “However, Lexi is understanding her role and her position within our program very, very well and doing a great job in that capacity.”Goldin has seen playing time this season — including this past Sunday against Illinois when freshman Erin Jobe moved to the sideline — but such has not been the norm. “Actually, she’s playing less than she’s played the last year or two,” Henderson said. “And again, in an individual sport where you’re either in or you’re not and there’s no in between, she has definitely handled the day-to-day practice situation, understanding her role in terms of being the one that’s the first in most of the time for us, and being prepared and taking any and every opportunity.”Even if Burke doesn’t return, it is possible that Goldin will not see action this Saturday. However, there is also a veritably ironic note to the idea that the lone Badger senior, who has spent most of the spring season chatting and listening to music alongside Burke on the sideline, may have her Senior Day fate determined by the health of that very teammate.
Bermuda’s Chief Justice Ian Kawaley Wednesday ruled that some sections of the controversial Domestic Partnership Act 2018 (DPA) were unconstitutional, paving the way for gay couples to once again marry in the territory. But even as he upheld the constitutional challenge to the DPA, the Chief Justice said that he was allowing time for the government to appeal the ruling before the new measure goes into effect.Inconsistent with Bermuda’s Constitution Delivering his judgement before a packed courtroom, Justice Kawaley, who steps down as Chief Justice later this year, said the sections of the act which revoked the right to same-sex marriage were invalid because they were inconsistent with provisions in Bermuda’s constitution which give the right to freedom of conscience and creed.His ruling came five days after the DPA came into effect, banning same-sex marriage in Bermuda but giving gay and straight couples the chance to enter into civil unions.Judgement stayed for 6-weeks The Government has an automatic right to appeal the ruling.The Chief Justice agreed to an application by Solicitor-General Melvyn Douglas to stay the effect of the judgement for six weeks until it decides whether to appeal, meaning the current ban on same-sex marriage will remain in place.The latest civil proceedings in Supreme Court were brought against Attorney-General Kathy Lynn Simmons by gay Bermudians Rod Ferguson and Maryellen Jackson and the charity OUT Bermuda.They claimed that the part of the DPA that reaffirmed that a marriage is void unless the parties are male and a female was unconstitutional.The DPA was approved by the island’s parliament last December, sparking criticism from human rights activists and UK MPs, including Prime Minister Theresa May, who said she was “seriously disappointed.”

The last time the going at the Festival opened up with heavy ground, the first race was won by a 66/1 shot in Ikdam. The highlight of the opening day will see 8/13 favourite Buveur D’Air aiming to defend the Champion Hurdle, trained by the meeting’s most successful trainer Nicky Henderson, the reigning champion faces stiff competition in the much anticipated race from Faugheen. In a statement on the official twitter of Cheltenham Racecourse, Clerk of the Course Simon Claisse said this morning: “We haven’t had rainfall since about one o’clock this morning and the outlook is for a dry day, with temperatures up to about nine or 10 degrees. “The going on today’s Chase and Hurdle courses is heavy to soft in places, it’s the first time we have started on heavy ground at the festival since 1982, we had a bit of heavy in Gold Cup in 1989, so it’s been a long time since we had conditions such as this, but a dry outlook for the next couple of days, should be great for this afternoon’s racing.The first race is the Sky Bet Supreme Novices Hurdle, which begins at half one this afternoon; the current 2/1 favourite is Willie Mullins trained Getabird. However, the heavy ground has a history of being favourable to underdogs. The biggest market mover comes from the first race, in the form of six-year-old Summerville Boy, which has attracted a plethora of punting attention in the market over the last twenty-four hours.No less than twenty-four bookies have cut odds on Tom George’s horse winning the famous race. The horse can now be backed at 9/1 with Sporting Bet, but is as short as 7/1 with a number of bookies.Oddschecker spokesman George Elek said: “Given the concerns surrounding the going, it’s no surprise there’s been considerable movement in the market for Summerville Boy.“He beat Kalashnikov on heavy ground in his last run, so it makes sense that punters would back him and double the price of Amy Murphy’s Betfair Hurdle winner.” College OTT FloSports secures Gold Cup coverage with HBA Media February 26, 2020 Submit Restructured GVC sidelines Oddschecker affiliate services July 8, 2020 Oddschecker: ‘Unusual circumstances’ fail to hinder Royal Ascot traffic July 23, 2020

Ashantigold Coach Bashiru Hayford has called for calm amongst the rank and file of the club. The coach has made these calls after fear and panic besieged fans and management after their goalless draw with New Edubiase.The draw has seen the Miners lead cut to two points with some tricky fixtures yet to come for the Obuasi side.But Hayford has is convinced his side can still annex the league title.“Chelsea will also go away. We started with zero points, all of you must be aware. We started with zero points,” he said“[Chelsea] are coming and we are also going and they are chasing us. For me I don’t have a problem. The problem is that they have managed the gap so we also have to strategize and make sure we keep it.”He continued with a rhetorical question: “If we can maintain the two points or one point gap at the end, who will win the league? “So what is the agitation?”The former Medeama and Kotoko coach went on to question the faith of the fans citing biblical quotations for their actions.“There is something in the bible: ‘O ye men of little faith.’ Yes, O ye men of little faith!”What are the plans going forward for Bashiru Hayford?“I am not going to relent on my efforts at all. We train, we prepare for another fixture. This [draw against Edubiase] should not discourage us. Ashantigold’s next fixture is against defending champions Asante Kotoko at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi in what promises to be a cracking game.–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments by Amber Schmitz, Sumner Newscow â€”Â To give kids a better sense of what it’s like to own a pet, the Wellington Humane Society is forming the Junior Humane Society.“They will help with cleaning, so that they know what chores come along with owning a pet,” said Wellington Humane Society President Phyllis Todd. “We’re hoping to raise awareness of what it’s like to have pets.”Besides cleaning, kids will groom, walk, and give special attention to rescue pets, as well as hold kittens, brush horses and clean their stalls.“It gives the pets more interaction, which makes them easier to adopt,” Todd said.The first meeting will be held tomorrow, from 2-4 p.m. at Todd’s ranch, Pearly Gaits Ranch. They are hoping that the first meetings will get kids organized so they will have groups of 3-4 spend 1 1/2-2 hrs with rescue pets. There will also be another meeting in May. If you can’t make the meeting, contact Todd, and she will find a way to schedule your volunteer time.Todd said she has kids who are definitely interested, and knows they will have some to start the group with. If more are interested than needed at one time, she said they will probably run different volunteer shifts.“We’ve been talking for awhile about getting the youth involved with the society,” Todd said.In the past, kids volunteered to ride horses at Pearly Gaits, where the rescue animals live. Todd said this is how she developed the idea for the junior society.They are asking for children ages 12 and up who are interested in volunteering. Todd said that high school students who need to earn volunteer hours are also welcome, and their time will be kept track of. Todd hopes that a parent will be able to stay with each group and help, as she may get called away to take care of other business.“As an incentive, when each child gets old enough to apply for a job, I will give them a good reference letter if they do a good job volunteering for me,” Todd said. “It gives them good experience in addition to volunteering.”Todd said that the rescue dogs and cats will be monitored to make sure that they are safe for kids of that age.“When Dr. Heersche (of Wellington Animal Clinic) has some animals that are adoptable, he calls me,” Todd said.Kids will be working with the rescue pets, such as dogs and cats looking for new homes. Most of the animals come from the pound, if no one claims them, so that they won’t be euthanized. The society will ask that for an adoption fee covering the cost of spaying or neutering, so the new owners won’t have to worry about it.Parents will be required to sign a liability form, and there will be a $5 membership fee, which will go into the Humane Society’s fund for animal supplies.Recently, the Wellington Humane Society Rescue Barn was built at Pearly Gaits, after enough funding was raised, and will house more rescue animals.“We finally got our license and have a separate rescue room, and will be able to accommodate 6-10 rescue animals, depending on their size and type,” Todd said.If people would like to donate to the rescue barn, they can send tax deductible to Wellington Humane Society, P.O. Box 494, Wellington, KS 67152, or bring bags of food, cat litter, etc. to Pearly Gaits, and get a tour of facility while there.Follow us on Twitter.
The Spanish Football Federation explained, through its Secretary General, Andreu Camps, that its plan to decide on the European positions for next season is due to the need to anticipate events, anticipating that the Spanish League could not finish at the same time as the rest of the European ones due to a higher incidence in the country of the coronavirus pandemic and did so outside the deadline established by UEFA for the admission of teams.“The RFEF wants to have homework done In case, in the event of a suspension of the competitions, he received the request from UEFA to request the Spanish clubs that would have access to the European competitions next season and Spain were in a unique contingency that was not shared by other countries. In other words, we must anticipate a hypothesis where the other countries could end up and we cannot. Imagine that only positives occur in our competition and not in others, which could end, unlike us. Now is the time to foresee all contingencies, ”said Camps.“In this way, before the competition resumes, the Delegated Commission of the RFEF has been agreed leave a plan designed in order to give certainty in an extreme scenario such as not being able to finish the competitions so that all the clubs know the new scenario that faces “, added Thus, with a view to accessing the Champions League, the first four teams would be proposed according to the classification of the last day of the First Division prior to the deadline in which there is an equal number of games played by the 20 teams.For the UEFA Europa League the fifth and sixth ranked with the same criteria above. Third place in the Europa League would be determined based on the following circumstances:– If the final of the Copa del Rey has been played, the champion would go, unless he is among the first six in the First Division. In that case, if the Cup champion were among the first six and, therefore, already classified, the team that occupied seventh place in the First Division would go.– If the final had not been played:a] If the two clubs are in the top 6 positions and therefore classified, it would be seventh in the regular competition.b] If one of the two was classified among the first six, the other finalist would go.c] If neither of the two finalists were in the top six, it would be the one between the two finalists in the league competition.In the event that the final of the Copa del Rey has not been played, the teams with the lowest score in the league competition would or would play the previous stages.

Dear Editor,At the risk of being characterised as “absurd”, “nonsensical”, and “foolish”, I would like to address the deficiencies in Dr David Hinds’ article captioned, “It is the role of Government in Guyana to directly and indirectly create employment for its citizens”.Hinds anchors his arguments in the “thinking of Jagan’s PPP, Burnham’s PNC and Rodney’s WPA”. Guyanese must be thankful to the CIA and British for their machinations in removing Jagan because Guyana would have been reduced to a Cuban style dictatorship. While Burnham wreaked havoc on the Guyanese economy experimenting with nationalisation, price controls, etc, Jagan deemed it “old wine in new bottle” and offered “critical support”. Rodney was the ideological twin of Robert Mugabe. His death [whether by his mishandling of explosive or treachery] saved Guyana from the faith of becoming another Zimbabwe-style disaster.Hinds seeks to liberate Guyanese from “four centuries of economic and political bondage” and advocates Government determining “who gets what, when and how”. Replacing massa with Government does not liberate Guyanese from “economic and political bondage.” Not massa but Government will take care of everything. Instead of liberation, Hinds institutionalises the dependency mindset of the plantation slave.Hinds fails to grasp the complexities of the Guyanese economy. Accordingly, he believes that Guyana is a “mini-private sector that is mostly engaged in “buying and selling” and does not have a “thriving and diverse private sector”.On his way to Buxton, Hinds should take a detour to Ogle. He will see the nascent Guyanese aviation sector. Furthermore, Hinds is clearly oblivious to all the construction that has taken place around the country, totally disregards the mining, timber, hotel, rice, sugar, bauxite, etc. Instead, he wants Government to determine “who gets what, when and how”. Guyanese will do well to remember the privation that they experienced with socialism. The ETB, co-op stores, KSI did not deliver for the Guyanese populace.Hinds, at his most dangerous, advocates the economic equivalent of “crack cocaine” – that is cash transfer to the poor. While this proposal sounds appealing, it reinforces the very dependency that he so desperately wants to overcome. Hinds should take a refresher in primary school proverbs – Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. The Government of Guyana should focus on education – build schools, award scholarships to study abroad; invest in hospitals; build roads, sewer systems, electricity grids, water, etc. Doling out cash is not the role of Government.It is time Guyanese reject the snake oil peddled by Hinds and his ilk.Sincerely,Roger AllyFort Lauderdale
