Required fields are marked * First Heatwave Expected Next Week The Pasadena Police Department’s Traffic Section will be conducting a DUI Checkpoint on Friday, January 25, 2013 at an undisclosed location, within the city limits between the hours of 7:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m.The deterrent effect of DUI checkpoints is a proven resource in reducing the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol or drug involved crashes. Research shows that crashes involving alcohol drop by an average of 20 percent, when well-publicized checkpoints are conducted frequently.Officers will be contacting drivers who pass through the checkpoint, for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment. When possible, specially trained officers will be available to evaluate those suspected of drug-impaired driving. Drivers who are caught driving impaired can expect jail, license suspension and insurance increases, as well as fines, fees, DUI classes and other expenses that can exceed $10,000.In 2010, over 10,000 people were killed nationally in motor vehicle traffic collisions that involved at least one driver or motorcycle rider with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08% or higher. In California, this deadly crime led to 791 deaths because someone failed to designate a sober driver. “Over the course of the past three years, DUI collisions have claimed 3 lives and resulted in 58 injury crashes, harming 82 of our friends and neighbors,” said Pasadena Police Chief Phillip L. Sanchez.According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), checkpoints have provided the most effective documented results of any other DUI enforcement strategy. Based on collision statistics and frequency of DUI arrests, DUI Checkpoints are placed in locations that have the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence. Locations are chosen with safety considerations for the officers and the public.“DUI Checkpoints have been an essential part of the phenomenal reduction in DUI deaths that we have witnessed since 2006 in California,” said Christopher J. Murphy, Director of the Office of Traffic Safety. “But since the tragedy of DUI accounts for nearly one third of traffic fatalities, Pasadena needs the high visibility enforcement and public awareness that checkpoints provide.”Funding for this checkpoint is provided to the Pasadena Police Department by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The NHTSA reminds everyone to continue working together in bringing an end to these tragedies by calling 9-1-1 to report drunk drivers.

Whitmore ‘deeply honoured’ – St James PC names two roads after former Reggae Boy

first_imgWESTERN BUREAU: Former national football star, Theodore ‘Tappa’ Whitmore, was one of nine prominent St James residents to have roads renamed in their honour at a ceremony hosted by the St James Parish Council at the Montego Bay Sports Complex on Tuesday. “I am deeply honoured and extremely privileged to be among the list of persons to be recognised by the St James Parish Council in such a significant way,” said Whitmore, who represented Jamaica with distinction in the 1998 World Cup Finals in France. “To have a road named after me is truly humbling. “I have spent most of my adult life dedicated to something I love, which is football. Not many people have the awesome blessing of getting up each day and working in an environment that fills their heart with such satisfaction,” continued Whitmore. “Therefore, it is my fervent desire to continue to serve my country and community by contributing in all ways I can to uplift those with whom I come in contact with, but more important, the less fortunate.” Whitmore also took the opportunity to make an impassioned plea for greater investment in the youth, citing the recent successes of two of St James football clubs. “On Saturday, the Granville Football Club won the Western Confederation Super League and Montego Bay United won the Red Stripe Premier League on Sunday,” said Whitmore. “These two championship successes have brought great pride to the west and are sterling examples of how community programmes can provide a positive alternative to our youths. “That is why I am convinced we can turn things around for our young men and women and (help them) regain their self-esteem through dignified work and community interaction.” He continued: “As I accept this gesture by the parish council, I do not only do so with a grateful heart, but also with a call for renewal in community development and greater investment in our young people.” Whitmore was one of nine honourees at the ceremony, which named 10 roadways in Montego Bay after prominent Montegonians – living and deceased – who offered exemplary service to the city through business, politics and sports. The two roadways named after Whitmore are: Theodore Whitmore Crescent, the section of roadway from the Howard Cooke Boulevard turning on to the Montego Bay Road and then right at the first roundabout in the southerly direction, passing the Catherine Hall Shopping Complex (MegaMart) to the second roundabout; and Theodore Whitmore Close, the section of roadway from Theodore Whitmore Crescent to the Montego Bay Sports Complex Bleachers’ Car Park. The other eight newly named roadways in Montego Bay are: – A.G.S. Coombs Road, named after the late former Minister of Communication and Works A.G.S. Coombs. – Arthur Gilchrist Boulevard, after the late former Mayor of Montego Bay Councillor Arthur Gilchrist. – Charles E. Sinclair Road, after the late former Mayor of Montego Bay Councillor Charles E. Sinclair. – Clarence Nelson Drive, after the late former Custos Rotulorum of St James Clarence Nelson. – Francis Tulloch Road, after businessman and former Minister of Tourism Francis Tulloch. – Glaister Dehaney Close, after businessman Glaister Dehaney. – Maffessanti Drive, after developer and builder Guiseppe Maffessanti. – Dr Marco Brown Road, after retired medical practitioner Dr Marco Brown.last_img read more

Gwenigale Faces Senate’s Contempt Trial Today, Asked to Present Medical Certificate Indicating His State…

first_imgFollowing a week of reprieve from enraged Senators of the 53rd Legislature, embattled Health and Social Welfare Minister Dr. Walter Gwenigale is expected to face the Senate plenary today with his lawyer, to show reason why he should not be held in contempt by the Senate.The Senate’s decision last Tuesday to hold Dr. Gwenigale in contempt, came in a report by the Senate Committee on Health, submitted to plenary on October 15, 2014 in which he (Dr. Gwenigale) is  allegedly accusing the Liberian Senate of being supportive of the strike action by health workers.The health workers were threatening for the third time  in one year to go on strike, in demand for the reinstatement of their dismissed president Joseph Tamba, and secretary general George Williams.The Senate Committee on Health was meeting with Minister Gwenigale to enquire why he had refused to reinstate the two leaders.The Health Minister’s outbursts during the meeting with the committee on Health, headed by Senator Peter Coleman as contained in the report to plenary, did not go down well with the lawmakers, who immediately ordered the Secretary of the Senate to write and invite Minister Gwenigale to face the Senate plenary.However, after receiving the citation and waiting in the Senate Cafeteria for the most part of the day, Dr. Gwenigale was finally summoned in the Chambers and informed that he was before the Senate to answer contempt charges, and reminded him that he was entitled to a lawyer if he so desired. His appearance was then postponed to afford him the chance to face the Senators along with his lawyer.But to the amazement of the lawmakers and the dozens that gathered in the Senate gallery to witness Dr. Gwenigale’s appearance, the Senate Secretary read a communication from the embattled Minister, informing the Senators his inability to appear, citing poor health.In that communication to the Senate plenary dated October 17, 2014, Dr. Gwenigale said he was unable to appear as requested by the Honorable House of the Senate due to health reasons which could also not permit him to travel along with the President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf during her recent trip to Lofa County.“After my appearance before the Senate last Thursday, my blood pressure went up, and it is still up with mild headache. Appearing before you again tomorrow will further increase my pressure.Dr. Gwenigale’s letter continued: “I kindly request that you reschedule my reappearance to a time when my health condition has improved. I thank you for your understanding and cooperation…” After hours of debating the Doctor’s communication, a motion was proffered by Sinoe County Senator Nyenpan requesting that the communication from Dr. Gwenigale be received by the Liberian Senate, and that his request be granted to the effect that he appeared before the Senate on Tuesday (October 28, 2014), and that he brings along medical certificate indicating his state of health during the period of his illness.An authoritative source within the leadership of the Senate informed this newspaper yesterday that Dr. Gwenigale will make his long-awaited appearance before the plenary today.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

How I strived for greatness—and failed—in front of LeBron James

first_imgLOOK: Loisa Andalio, Ronnie Alonte unwind in Amanpulo for 3rd anniversary In life, there are moments when you just want to turn back the clock a few minutes and get a do over like a video game.ADVERTISEMENT Speaking of LeBron, the great Cavalier arrived just after the warm ups. Decked in a grey t-shirt, black shorts, and his size 16 “Silver Bullet” Soldier 11s, James had the chance to oversee our training, which was also witnessed by hundreds of fans inside the facility.As the fans in the stands tiptoed and craned their heads to get a good view of The King, he was within my arms length and I took the golden opportunity to strike a conversation with him.Photo by Sherwin Vardeleon/INQUIRER“Hey ‘Bron, what’s up?” I asked the 6-foot-8, 250-pound legend in front of me.“I’m good, how are you?” he asked back.I wanted to say things were peachy, but after a few rounds of this world-class training that has put LeBron in the best shape of his life in his illustrious NBA career, I was beat and it showed—it was hard to miss the sheen of the glimmering sweat from afar (my other friends from the media noticed).ADVERTISEMENT SEA Games in Calabarzon safe, secure – Solcom chief WATCH: Streetboys show off slick dance moves in Vhong Navarro’s wedding Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Sports venues to be ready in time for SEA Games PLAY LIST 00:59Sports venues to be ready in time for SEA Games01:27Filipino athletes get grand send-off ahead of SEA Games00:50Trending Articles01:37Protesters burn down Iran consulate in Najaf01:47Panelo casts doubts on Robredo’s drug war ‘discoveries’01:29Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games E.T. returns to earth, reunites with grown-up Elliott in new ad  LATEST STORIES MOST READ As the drills went into full swing, I seemed to be getting worse. I missed four more layups after hitting the first. Then when it was time to do the jumpers, I airballed my next shot and bricked the other. When we were asked to stop on the right wing, make a move and go for the layup, I only made one in four tries.Clearly, I wasn’t a picture of greatness.What made things more embarrassing was LeBron saw that I sucked. It’s not every day that the NBA’s most dominant player, whose first order of business in a foreign land is to go straight to the gym and work on his skills, get to witness me throw bricks in an event that was all about “striving for greatness.”LeBron always preached of hitting that peak form. Unfortunately for him, my cholesterol-filled sweat glistening off of me isn’t exactly an image to behold as I chased my breath harder than I could solve a math problem.Maybe my nerves weren’t with me or I just didn’t get enough sleep. But shortly after the workout, when the Gilas players breezed through their drills under James’ scrutiny, the most I could do was remember the disappointment I gave LeBron and how I need to work harder next time.I guess that’s what LeBron’s striving for greatness mantra is all about—you can’t get everything perfect on your first try (and in my case, the second, third, fourth…) but how you bounce back from adversity is what counts.In my case, after screwing up royally in front of the King, I didn’t get a second chance. Like missing the context clues your date gave you, I blew it.Now let me get my do over button. Catriona Gray spends Thanksgiving by preparing meals for people with illnesses That moment for me came last Saturday.With just three hours of sleep and mind fresh from grad school torture, I headed into the opportunity of a lifetime to workout with LeBron James.
