High Political drama unfolded early this morning in the vicinity of the old JAMINTEL Building on Duke Street in downtown Kingston, where Jamaica Labour Party supporters claim a motor vehicle full of Peoples National Party supporters “swung at them and crashed.” The four men were driving a brown Honda Odyssey van registered with a public passenger licence plate. One eyewitness, who refused to be named, said the motor vehicle passed up the road before and returned before swinging at a group of persons. “One of them, the man in the back get a serious injury. Them look bad and just look like them come on the road to show them bad. Him did a drive and smoke weed and look like him can’t drive,” she stated. “Officer, a want you put in your report that Portia bus crash,” one man clad in full green shouted to police which had gathered on the scene. The men have since been taken to the Kingston Public Hospital, where Sergeant Miller of the Motorised Patrol Unit said: “One of the injured men was admitted to the operating theatre, one suffered injury to his mouth and the most serious injury to his neck.” The driver wasn’t hurt and the injuries are not life threatening, but a female Inspector of Police for the Kingston Central Police division is imploring caution on the road. “I implore drivers to just adhere to the rules of the road,” she stressed.

Failure to pay the fine will result in him having to serve six months in prison.
He might now be California’s most famous rule-breaker, but Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger showed last week he can take a punch with the best of ’em. With 15 stitches closing a cut upper lip he suffered in a collision on his motorcycle – for which, it turns out, he doesn’t have a California license – the governor tried to joke about it with Sacramento reporters during a briefing on his budget proposal. “If I sound a little funny, it’s because I have stitched-up lips here,” Schwarzenegger said. “It all happened because of a motorcycle accident. A car pulled out in front of me – and I just couldn’t make a decision which way to go. “I knew if I turned left that the Republicans will get mad and I knew if I turned right, my wife will get mad. So I just crashed right into the car. It was the safer thing to do.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa Anita Schwarzenegger did not offer any excuses for his failure to get a license to operate a motorcycle. The governor said he had such a license in Austria, which he used when he lived in Germany. “When I came over here in the beginning, I used that,” Schwarzenegger said. “And, I just never applied for it. I never thought about it.” Since the accident, his staff has recommended he stay off motorcycles until he gets the license. Just in case you don’t get enough of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa – seeing him out there filling potholes, planting trees, recycling trees or cutting ribbons – he has begun his own electronic way to let you know what he is doing. The mayor last week debuted an electronic newsletter, called Our LA, featuring information on what he’s done since taking office, discussing various issues and inviting residents to take part. “We are trying for this to be more engaging that most newsletters,” an aide to Villaraigosa said. In the newsletter, Villaraigosa gives his response to newspaper editorials – the first deals with growth – as well as surveys of what people believe the mayor’s top priorities should be. It also has a section in which residents are asked to send in pictures of places or events that capture “the spirit” of Los Angeles. The rest of the newsletter offers various tips or notices of upcoming events. The mailing went out initially to city employees and those on the mayor’s office mailing list. Other can apply to get in by going to the mayor’s Web site at www.lacity.org/mayor and subscribing to Our LA. Officials with the city Ethics Commission said there are no restrictions on such communications. There is an undercurrent of concern developing among neighborhood council leaders as plans get under way to formally create a citywide neighborhood congress. Twenty-six of the city’s 84 neighborhood councils have said they plan to participate in the proposed neighborhood congress – scheduled for Feb. 4 and designed to create one voice for the groups on major issues. What is concerning some is the prospect of neighborhood councils turning against one another in a battle over power and jurisdiction. The concern is that what one neighborhood council sees as a local issue, another views as a citywide issue. One example frequently cited is Sunshine Canyon Landfill, where all the city’s residential trash is hauled. The environmental impacts are felt in Granada Hills, where the dump is located, while the cost of sending it elsewhere would be borne citywide. Ken Draper, editor of City Watch, the newsletter of the neighborhood councils, said the differences have far-reaching implications. “Regardless of one’s feelings about the emerging NC Congress – if it fails, that failure will alter dramatically the perception of the city and stakeholders of neighborhood council influence,” Draper said. On a separate track, a meeting is scheduled Saturday at City Hall for a second briefing of neighborhood council members on Villaraigosa’s planned budget for the coming year.

A pizza delivery man has been ordered to participate in the Pro-Social Drivers programme after being charged with dangerous driving. Shaji Matthew, 46, with an address at Caislean Court, Castlefin appeared before Letterkenny District Court charged with dangerous driving. Mr Matthew, an employee of Domino’s Pizza was charged with dangerous driving in relation to an incident which occurred on the duel carriageway near Raymoughy, Letterkenny on the 23rd of December.Inspector Goretti Sheridan told the court, “Gardaí observed a red corolla with a delivery sign on its roof pull up on the hard shoulder on the duel carriageway close to the Manorcunningham roundabout.“He then performed a U-turn on the road and headed back down the duel carriageway in the wrong direction.“He then proceeded to also drive around the roundabout in the wrong direction which was obviously extremely dangerous in both incidents.Solicitor for the defendant Patsy Gallagher told the court, “My client had received a call that his wife had taken ill – and had been rushed to hospital.“He basically dropped everything and decided to head immediately to the hospital to attend to his wife.“He obviously made a big error – but was in a bit of panic after the phone call he had received and didn’t think.“A disqualification would adversely effect his employment – and I’d appeal to the court for my client to participate in a Pro-Social Drivers programme.Judge John Faughnan directed the defendant to participate in the four-week driving programme but adjourned the matter until July 18th.PIZZA DELIVERY MAN DROVE AROUND ROUNDABOUT IN THE WRONG DIRECTION was last modified: January 19th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:dangerous drivingDomino’s Pizza DeliveryincidentRoundaboutShaji Matthew
FROM NEIL DOHERTY AT CELTIC PARK: AROUND 300 Donegal fans of the Hoops made the long trek to Glasgow today – and saw Celtic overcome a stubborn Heart side by a single goal.And they would have seen one of the most nerve-wracking ends to a game here in a long time, when Hoops keeper Fraser Foster saving a last-minute penalty to maintain the 1-0 win, three points and a gap closed on Rangers who had beaten Hibs 2-0 in Edinburgh earlier in the day.Celtic manager Neil Lennon singled out the contribution of goalscorer Victor Wanyama in the 1-0 victory. The Kenyan’s 72nd-minute wondergoal added to his growing reputation as a passer, defender and all-round reader of the game. He went on a rare solo run and fired in a stunning goal from 25 yards.Lucky? Genius? Who cares?“It was a brilliant goal,” said Neil Lennon afterwards.. “He hasn’t been showing that.“His shooting is normally as bad as mine, but I’m delighted. It was a great finish and I thought we thoroughly deserved the win.” Goalkeeper Fraser Forster then pushed away an Eggert Jonsson’s penalty with 60 seconds remaining to secure the three points.“We were the dominant tream, and it’s always a worry at 1-0, but I thought we dominated the game for long periods,” said Lennon.“Hearts made it difficult – they packed the midfield and I thought Marius Zaliuskas had a great game in the midfield.“They fought for everything and credit to them for what they’re going through (most players haven’t been paid for more than a month).“They showed admirable fortitude against us, but I thought we played well. “It wasn’t vintage Celtic, but it was gutsy and there was some good performances.”Lennon was also puzzled as to how referee Calum Murray arrived by his decision to award a late penalty for Hearts, as television replays were inconclusive over the incident between Wanyama and Maruis Zaliukas that determined the spot-kick.“The ref is saying it’s a handball, but I’ve seen it again,” said Lennon.“Wanyama went up for a header with his arms, but he hasn’t touched it with his hands – Zaliuskas headed it, so I don’t know how Calum had a good view of it because he couldn’t see it from that angle. “If you look where the ball has ended up, it’s impossible for him to hit it with his hand and direct it that way.“But Fraser was due a save and it was a magnificent save.“We were patient and we got a wonder goal and the three points, which I felt was thoroughly deserved.”ENDSTHE HOOPS REPORT: PERHAPS LENNON’S LUCK HAS FINALLY TURNED AFTER WIN OVER HEARTS was last modified: December 10th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:CELTIC V HEARTS DECEMBER 10 2011hoops reportvictory
Termon GAA club chairman Joe McDaid has issued a unique (and brave!) challenge to all club members ahead of its 5K road race on July 12th. Joe claims that he will beat any person that is over half his age.McDaid claims he is 40 (no laughing now) meaning anyone over 20 and below 40 can challenge.Eligible club members expected to take up the challenge include county panelist Michael Boyle as well as former county players Grainne McDaid, Paddy McDaid and Maureen O’Donnell.Ineligible due to being underage are Geraldine McLaughlin, Petra McCafferty and Ryan McDaid. The real threat is understood to come form Paddy McDaid who recently posted a 22.30 – a few seconds outside Joe’s 21.59 during his last 5K.The gauntlet has been thrown down but Joe is still refusing to say what he will do if he is beaten.However, there is talk that he will buy a round of drinks for all participants at the Lagoon.Whatever the outcome Termon are hoping as many people can sign up on the night as possible.It’s all in a good cause – the development of the underage teams at the club.

A young Donegal man has entered the Irish professional wrestling circuit and dreams of becoming the best in the world.Steve Campbell, who is from Falcarragh, returns to his hometown this Saturday night at 6pm in the PCC Falcarragh to star in a wrestling event.Steven, who now lives in Goath Dobhair,plans to go to the top in the IWW wrestling world. The well-known Falcarragh man admits that some people are skeptical about wrestling.However he says that unless someone jumps into the wrestling ring, they will never know how toiuh the sport is.‘’Theres no easy match in IWW. The roster is full of talent and former champions. Every training session can be a real tough battle but I love the challenge.“I need to prove myself against the best wrestlers in Europe like Mandrake, Captain Rooney or the IWW International Heavyweight Champion, The Supermodel. I don’t just want to be a pro wrestler, I want to be the pound for pound best wrestler ever one day and IWW best place to start.,” he said. Steven says he thinks he got the inspiration for wrestling from watching the other stars with his brother Bryan on TV.The former LYIT student, whose wrestling name is Cambo, is certainly no flash in the pan.He spent seven years learning mixed martial arts and also kickboxing.He says he is hopeful a large crowd comes out to Falcarragh to cheer him on come Saturday.‘’I like to think that all of Donegal is my home, not just one area. I live in Gweedore, went to secondary school in Falcarragh, I’d always hang out with my friends in dunfanaghy and I went to college in Letterkenny. IWW holds shows all over the country but I can’t wait to wrestle in front of my friends and family in my hometown area.’’ DONEGAL MAN ‘WRESTLING’ WITH HIS CONSCIENCE OVER CAREER CHOICE! was last modified: April 30th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)
