Sports not included in stimulus package – Deputy Sports Minister

first_imgGovernment did not include sports in its one billion cedis stimulus package for Small and Medium Scale Enterprises (SMEs), Deputy Sports Minister, Perry Okudzeto has revealed.“The stimulus package we know is for small scale and medium scale businesses, SMEs. Football or sports is not included in the package as we speak but discussions are on going,” he said on JoyNews’ Beyond the Lockdown show.This revelation is a blow to the Ghana Football Association (GFA), one of the major sporting institutions to have applied for support from the central government due to the Covid-19 pandemic. There’s been calls for government to extend financial support to sports, especially football. Sporting activities have been suspended since the President’s directive to cease all social activities that require large crowds as part of measures to control the spread of Covid-19.The lack of activities has had an adverse effect on the sector generally, with football seemingly the hardest hit because of the number of people it employs directly and indirectly.The GFA in their request to government indicated that their members fall under SMEs. CEO of Inter Allies, Delali Senaye noted in an interview with Joy Sports last month that football clubs are SMEs and should be supported by government. His claims were echoed by CEO of Data Bank, Kojo Addae-Mensah who said sports contributes five percent in revenue to the Ghanaian economy.However, in a response to the question from a viewer on the show, Mr Okudzeto said “We have received proposals from various federations on the state and the sort of their federations and the sort of help they may require going forward.“We are considering the proposals and at the appropriate time when a decision is taken on what support will go to particular federations those announcements will be made,” he added.last_img read more

Whicker: Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is another hot spot in Lakers’ summer of love

first_imgEL SEGUNDO >> He’s here because he won over Earvin Johnson. Both of them, actually.“He’s my favorite Piston,” Earvin Johnson Sr. told his son. “You need to go get him.”So the Lakers signed Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, big guard, economical with words, generous with minutes.General Manager Rob Pelinka likened this to the moment in the book of Genesis when the manna came down from heaven. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “This guy (Pope) brings us toughness, which we needed,” Johnson said. “He can be a little mean. You need that when you need to make that big defensive stop at the end of a game.”“We were told by a lot of people that we got a steal,” Pelinka said. “We were impressed with what other players said. There is a lot of respect in this league for him.”Caldwell-Pope’s career has been solid but surreptitious. He played just two years at Georgia, which was 15-17 his sophomore year. Even then he was the SEC Player of the Year in 2013, as the only double-figure scorer the Bulldogs had.“I was on a plane getting ready to take off when he called and told me he was coming,” said Mark Fox, the Georgia coach. “The flight attendant kept telling me to put the phone away.”Caldwell-Pope’s stoic, 9-to-5 mentality won over Fox. He also didn’t complain about being a one-man band. Eventually his daily grinding propelled him into the lottery..“When that whole process started he was supposed to be drafted late first round or early second,” Fox said. “Then when he began working out for teams, he blew them away.”Caldwell-Pope was picked eighth in that first round. Detroit fans were miffed because the Pistons snubbed Trey Burke, the hot point guard at Michigan. Their provincialism evaporated after one season.But to see how far Caldwell-Pope has come, one has to visit Greenville, Ga. Or find it. “It’s a no-stop-light town,” Fox said.Fewer than a thousand people live there, and his mother Rhonda used to drive him 45 minutes to Columbus, where his AAU team was based.Caldwell-Pope scored 40 points, with a busted and bleeding lip, to win a Class A playoff game for Greenville. The Patriots defeated Wilcox County, which featured Nick Marshall, who would quarterback Auburn to the 2014 BCS championship game at the Rose Bowl.Rhonda was here on Tuesday for her son’s introduction.“He was a hungry young man,” Rhonda said. “He wanted it. He’d leave in the morning and play ball and wouldn’t come until late at night. He played a little football but I’d say, ‘KCP, that is not your hobby. Basketball is your hobby.’“He was already quiet. He’d come in the house and say, ‘Hey, mom’ and then go to his room. But he knew what he wanted. I looked and saw what he became and I said, ‘God, you did it.’ It was amazing to see this young man in that position. It was an honor.”Several of the Lakers who won the Summer League title Monday night were on hand. Magic singled out Ingram for staying in Las Vegas for the duration, even though he was out with an injury after the first game.No parade route was announced and, sure, the Summer Lakers were playing against a lot of 12th men and G-League personnel. But they played appealing basketball, with connectivity and unselfishness, and they did win that final game without Ball.“If Lonzo got triple-doubles in the Summer League he’ll get them in the regular season,” Johnson said. “We’re already better. Our practices will be amazing. I’m telling people, you don’t want to miss a Lakers game this season.”Their  fans don’t need to be told. They’re just glad to see the outline of a heaven again. With bread.center_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersIt didn’t even matter that Caldwell-Pope can stage an Exodus next year, after this $18 million, one-year contract.He is a fifth-year player with gravity to his game, for a young team with airborne intentions.“I think being a better defender is more important to me,” Caldwell-Pope said. “I’m hoping to bring some leadership to the guys, get their motor going, seeing how they work. Bringing it out in different ways.”Granted, you don’t have to be Isiah Thomas to be somebody’s favorite Piston these days. Caldwell-Pope played four years in Detroit and played four playoff games. But he averaged 40.2 minutes in those four games. He averaged 36.4 minutes two seasons ago.He had just 86 turnovers in 76 games for Detroit last season and shot 35 percent from the 3-point line. He also guarded the top perimeter players, which means Lonzo Ball will not have to.last_img read more

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — This weekend is THE weekend for the Wellington wrestling team.The Kansas State High School Activities Association Regional Tournament in Winfield will start Friday at 2 p.m. This will determine which wrestlers move on to the Class 4A Regional at the Bicentennial Center in Salina on Feb. 28 and March 1.Wellington will be competing against Labette County, Andale, Andover Central, Augusta, Clearwater, Coffeyville, El Dorado, Independence, Mulvane, Pratt, Rose Hill, Circle, Wellington, Wichita Trinity and Winfield. The top four wrestlers from each weight division advances to state.“This will be one of the top two regionals in the state in Class 4A,” said Mitch McComb, Wellington head wrestling coach.So how many wrestlers does Wellington expect to qualify? Let’s just say, this just might be the best year Wellington has had since the Russ Decker days back in 1994.“I’m hoping we can get six qualified, and if we can pull off some upsets we could get as many as nine,” he said.Wellington hasn’t had more than two wrestlers since 2008 and that was three.The Crusaders will be taking 11 to the regional in the 14-weight bracket. Only Augusta is bringing a full squad. with 14 members. Andover Central and Mulvane have 13 and Andale has 12. See regional information here: The Crusaders will be open in the three lower ranks, but will fill out the weight classes from 126 to heavyweight.Wellington has six wrestlers seeded fourth or better, meaning they are projected to become state qualifiers. Andrew Pelkey at 145, Chance Hain at 170, Aaron Fair at 182, Taylon Lamkin at 195, Dalton Holt at 220 and Tyson Hodson at heavyweight – are all No. 4 or higher. Lamkin is a No. 1 seed.Five others: Brad Wiens at 126, Andrew Horn at 132, Graysen DeJarnett at 138, Ben DeJarnett at 152, and Joey Hayden at 160 are seeded No. 7 or 8. They have to pull off an upset or two to get into the final four.As a team, Wellington could get a trophy. McComb said Augusta will be the favorite and is unlikely to lose. But Wellington could finished second out of 15 teams.But everything has to go right.Here is a preview of each varsity Wellington wrestler per weight division.106 – open.113 – open.120 – open.126 – Brad Wiens, 14-18, is a No. 8 seed. McComb said his chances of getting into the top four are unlikely.132 – Andrew Horn, 24-13, is a No. 7 seed. From the start of this season, Horn was going to be stuck in a very tough weight class. A key match for him might be in the consolation bracket if he goes up against Cusick of Mulvane, who Horn has beaten once in three tries this season.138-  Graysen DeJarnett, 14-8, is a No. 7 seed. McComb said it would take a major upset in this division for DeJarnett to get to state.145 – Andrew Pelkey, 24-5, is a No. 2 seed. Pelkey should be fun to watch over these next two weeks. He was ranked No. 4 in the Feb. 20 Kansas Wrestling Coaches Association poll found here. McComb said the key match for him will potentially come in the semifinals when he battles Logan Elliott of Mulvane. If he wins there that will set up a showdown against No. 1 seed Jordan Mead, Independence, ranked No. 3.152 – Ben DeJarnett, 23-10, is a No. 7 seed. McComb said. B. DeJarnett has an outside chance but will have to score a big upset to get into the final four.160 – Joey Hayden, 18-15, No. 8 seed, like many in the lower ranks, have to pull an upset to win.170 – Chance Hain, 15-10, No. 3 seed. Hain has beaten every wrestler below him in the 170 pound division, and lost to the No. 1 and No. 2 seed. This will be one of the biggest weight divisions in this regional as there are 13 wrestlers.182 – Aaron Fair, 17-15, No. 4 seed. He was a fourth seed. He has lost to the No. 1, 2 and 3 seed wrestlers and won against the others with the exception of a wrestler from Pratt. That could be the boy Fair will face in the consolation semifinals with a chance to get to state. Like 170, this is a very big weight division with 13 wrestlers.195 – Taylon Lamkin, 28-5, No. 1 seed, is the favorite. He hasn’t wrestled four wrestlers in this division but he has beaten their common opponents. Lamkin is ranked No. 4 in the latest rankings.220 – Dalton Holt, 19-9, No. 2 seed. McComb said he has a chance to win his weight division.Hwt.- Tyson Hodson, 24-11, No. 4 seed. Hodson is predicted to qualify, but will likely wrestle a fifth seed from El Dorado in the consolation semifinals that could go either way.last_img read more

Accused Carjacker Dodges Train During High-speed Police Chase Through PBC

first_imgShe told police that she picked up Johns, who she knew simply as “JJ,” from a Super 8 motel in West Palm Beach. Johns allegedly became aggressive at some point during the drive. That is when he made the woman switch seats with him, took her car keys and also tried to smash her phone, the police report explains.The woman also said that Johns pushed her from the car near a business park and sped off again before she was completely out of the vehicle, which resulted in bruises to her hands and knees.Johns took off again when a Boynton Beach police officer noticed the vehicle and tried to pull it over.“The suspect vehicle led several police officers on a high speed pursuit accelerating to speed over 90 mph through several different cities including Lantana” and crossed in front of an oncoming train in an attempt to evade officers, the report states.Police deployed spike strips, which deflated the car’s tires near Abbey Road in West Palm Beach.Johns was arrested without incident and was identified by the alleged victim. He was released from the Palm Beach County Jail Wednesday after posting a $53,000 bond, and is due back in court on June 11. A local man is facing felony charges, after an apparent carjacking in Boynton Beach ended with a bizarre car chase.Authorities say 32-year-old Jaron Johns, of Wellington, led officers on a ride Tuesday, after he allegedly forced a woman out of her car and stole it.The probable cause affidavit states that Johns reached speeds exceeding 90 mph through residential neighborhoods from Boynton Beach to West Palm Beach.He crossed railroad tracks ahead of an oncoming train to lose police officers who were chasing him.Johns was arrested when the chase came to an end on Tuesday evening. He has been charged with carjacking, fleeing and eluding and driving on a suspended license.The incident started when the unidentified woman gave Johns a ride.Courtesy: Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Officelast_img read more

(Image: Play Your Part / Owami Women)The Owami Women Play Your Part Recognition Awards celebrate women who are socially and economically responsible, influential and engaged at a local community level.Women have played an important part over the years in relieving many of South Africa’s social, economic and political challenges, and many socio-economic achievements have been made thanks to the combined energies of women from different walks of life.

Witsel agrees Dortmund deal ahead of €20m switch

first_imgAxel Witsel is set for his first crack at one of Europe’s top five leagues after agreeing a move from Tianjin Quanjian to Borussia Dortmund.Belgium international Witsel will sign a four-year deal with the Bundesliga side after they agreed to pay his release clause, which is believed to be in the region of €20 million (£18m/$23m).He has long been linked with some of Europe’s biggest clubs, but his career has generally taken routes less travelled.
