Man jailed for causing death of Nigel Hughes’ mother

first_imgBy Kizzy ColemanJuliano Seunarine, the driver who was charged with causing the death of Christobel Hughes, the mother of former Alliance For Change (AFC) Chairman, Attorney Nigel Hughes, was on Monday jailed for four years.The sentence was handed down by Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan following the conclusion of the trial at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.When he was charged in August 2015, Seunarine pleaded not guilty to the charge, which stated that on August 15, 2015 at Pike and Lamaha Streets, Kitty, Georgetown, he drove motor pick-up PPP 4641 in a dangerous manner to the public thereby causing the death of Hughes.In handing down her decision, Magistrate McLennan explained that at the time of the accident, the defendant, based on evidence presented, was under the influence of alcohol. The Magistrate stated that the Court has concluded that Hughes died as a result of the accident.As such, she added, the court is satisfied beyond reasonable doubt that the defendant is guilty of the offence.McLennan added that the prosecution proved its case beyond a reasonable doubt.The defence in a plea of mitigation petitioned for leniency, pointing out that the defendant, who is 28 years old, is the sole provider for his family, including an ailing mother.The Court heard that the defendant since the incident has spent two months in prison while being on remand.After listening to the defence, Magistrate McLennan sentenced Seunarine to spend four years in prison.

Hicks taking on sweet science while at Cal Poly

first_imgBut Cal Poly Pomona freshman basketball player Randi Hicks is actively participating in that exact combination of sports, though she’s a relative newcomer to the sport of boxing. Hicks, recruited to Cal Poly as a forward, averaged 17 points and 12 rebounds as a senior last season at Oxnard Rio Mesa High School. When you talk about multi-sport athletes there are many different sport combinations that come to mind. Boxing, basketball and track and field are not usually one of those, especially among women. She was also a pretty fair shot-putter for the school’s track team, making it to CIF-Southern Section prelims last year. When the basketball season is done, she plans on competing for Cal Poly’s track team and hopes to get a chance in the javelin and hammer throw. Although she loved other sports, Hicks’ love for boxing was constantly in the background. Her father, Kevin Hicks, who played football at the University of Oregon and was in camp as a punter with the Dallas Cowboys in 1984, used boxing training with his daughter, including hitting the heavy bag. This training helped cultivate her love for the sport. “My grandparents (whom she grew up with) wouldn’t let me box until I was 18,” said Hicks. When she reached that age last summer she put her training to use. “I was just hoping she would learn to protect herself,” Kevin Hicks said. center_img She’s done more than protect herself, winning all five of her bouts last summer in her 157-pound weight class while training out of the Oxnard Police Athletic League. “I trained for two weeks, and I (first) fought a woman who was 26 years old and had a lot more experience,” she said. Not only did Hicks win, but she found out she liked the hitting and didn’t mind being hit. “I have a lot of aggression, and this gives me a chance to deal with it,” Hicks said. She quickly gained the respect of Rocky Garza, the boxing coordinator for the city of Oxnard and a boxing trainer out of the Oxnard PAL. “When I first saw her, I thought, `this girl looks like a worker. She’s totally fit.’ … I thought she was going to ask about other activities,” Garza said. Garza found out she was interested in boxing and even had a knack for it. “She’s got a real passion for the sport,” he said. “I could tell she loves the contact.” Garza discovered he could push her in training like few others. She was already a student of the sweet science, and in two or three days, Garza was teaching Hicks things that most boxers wait a year to learn. “I’ve been around women’s boxing about the last 10 years or so,” Garza said. “She could be one of the best we’ve ever had in amateur boxing.” For now, boxing will have to take a backseat. Hicks did some two-a-day workouts with Garza when she was home around Christmas but her boxing will be largely limited to summers when she will continue to pursue amateur titles. That kind of work ethic is evident in her basketball, too. Hicks has played in only 14 of the Broncos’ first 25 basketball games this season, though she may miss the final two games of the season this week for a medical ailment that requires antibiotics. She’s averaging only 1.7 points and 1.4 rebounds but has made an impression on interim coach Michelle Fortier. “She’s the hardest worker,” Fortier said. “She’s improved a great deal and eventually there will be a payoff.” The boxing intrigues Hicks’ teammates and coaches. “I’d really like to see her box,” Fortier said. “She likes to lift weights a lot. Maybe with the two sports, her footwork will improve, since she has to jump rope (in boxing).” Fortier said she has more frequently seen soccer used to help basketball footwork, but doesn’t see why boxing can’t be helpful. But Hicks isn’t boxing just to help her basketball career; she loves it too. She is studying sociology and criminology at Cal Poly and wants to pursue a career in law enforcement. She’s already talking about going pro in boxing while working in law enforcement. “I like being strong,” she said. “I like things that require a lot of strength and I’m also interested in being a body builder.” Kevin Hicks isn’t overly worried about his daughter potentially going into an athletic career in a very physical sport. “I think I’d be scared more if she wasn’t in such good shape,” he said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Going green for St. Patrick’s Day

first_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! OK, you’ve found something green to wear, worked up a hearty thirst and wouldn’t mind a plate of corned beef and cabbage to go with the Guinness. But you’re not going to shell out a couple of grand for the cattle car to Dublin. So how to celebrate a passport-free St. Patrick’s Day on Saturday? First, a little background blarney. • St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated for the patron saint of Ireland, and one of Christianity’s most widely known figures, on March 17, the anniversary of his death in the fifth century. The Irish have observed the day as a religious holiday for thousands of years. • Green beer, parades and questionable fashion choices are American affectations. In Ireland, St. Patrick’s Day is a Catholic holiday — and green is considered unlucky. • The leprechaun, a Celtic fairy, has become entrenched as a symbol for the day. But you really wouldn’t want to run into one — they’re usually cranky little creatures (apologies to the Lucky Charms mascot). • Guinness is good for you! A few years ago, the American Heart Association found that the Irish beer with the black body and creamy head could be as effective as daily aspirin in reducing blood clots that cause heart attacks. • One of the best-known myths about St. Patrick is that he drove all the snakes from Ireland into the Irish Sea. Impossible — snakes have never been native to the Emerald Isle. • The Big Apple becomes the Big Shamrock each St. Patrick’s Day when around 3 million watch and 150,000 participate in the longest-running civilian parade in the country. • The Chicago River goes green each St. Patrick’s Day. The tradition began in 1962, when pipe fitters poured 100 pounds of green dye into the river. Today 40 pounds are used, enough to turn the river green for several hours. • The first St. Patrick’s Day parade took place not in Ireland, but in the U.S. when Irish soldiers serving in the English military marched through New York on March 17, 1762. Annual St. Patrick’s Day parades, like the one in downtown Los Angeles on Friday, have become a show of strength for Irish Americans. • It’s often said that everyone’s a little bit Irish on St. Patrick’s Day. But some are more Irish than others. The census shows 34.7 million U.S. residents claiming Irish ancestry, almost nine times the population of Ireland itself (4.2 million). Here are the parades, music joints and pubs to celebrate the day o’ the green. And because the high-spirited holiday takes place Saturday, you’ve got all day Sunday to nurse that hangover. MUSIC Local heroes the Young Dubliners appear at 9 p.m. Friday at the Key Club, 9039 Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood. (310) 274-5800; keyclub.com. Like the Chieftains, the Young Dubliners have been around for more than 20 years, blending Celtic sounds with contemporary rock. Celtic singer Ken O’Malley and his band the Twilight Lords settle in for their annual daylong show of traditional Irish folk and rock Saturday at Ireland’s 32, 13721 Burbank Blvd., Van Nuys. 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., followed by well-known singer-songwriter Colm Gallagher & Friends. (818) 785-4031; irelands32pub.com. No green beer, but Guinness on tap (and nobody’s complained yet). The Queen Mary Pub Crawl will shuttle people to three of Long Beach’s Irish pubs — Auld Dubliner, Gallagher’s and Limerick’s — on an old-fashioned English double-decker bus, starting at 1 p.m. Saturday. The final stop will be at the Observation Bar aboard the ocean liner, moored in Long Beach. Tickets are $59 to $89, which includes one pint of beer at each pub, snacks and a T-shirt. wantickets.com; click on Queen Mary Pub Crawl.

The South Bay St. Patrick’s Day Parade takes place Saturday in Hermosa Beach. The parade steps off at the intersection of Valley and Pier avenue at 11 a.m., proceeds west on Pier to Hermosa Avenue and then south on Hermosa, where it will disband on Eighth Street. There’s also a festival Saturday and Sunday featuring a carnival, petting zoo, international food court, Irish dancing and music.

FORMER DONEGAL COUNTY MANAGER APPOINTED BOSS OF COUNTY DERRY

first_imgFORMER Co Donegal GAA manager Brian McIver has been appointed the new boss of Co Derry.The Tyrone native admitted that he never thought he would ever manage at county level again – because he never wanted to take on Donegal due to the time he had spent here.He spent last year as an adviser to the Down squad. The Ardboe man was appointed to the Donegal job in September 2005 and his side reached the Ulster Final in 2006 where they were narrowly beaten by Armagh.McIver’s side appeared to be making major progress in 2007 when they landed the county’s first ever National League title, beating Mayo in the final.McIver quit after but several Donegal clubs expressed the view that he should go.The Tyrone man said he had stepped down after effectively being presented with a “vote of no confidence”. McIver appeared to have the support of the Donegal squad but it became clear that a significant number of the county’s clubs felt that a change was needed at the top.“I am delighted to get the [Derry] job and I am looking forward to the challenge,” he said yesterday.“It’s a really big challenge. When I left Donegal I thought there would be no way I would manage at county level again.“I got on well with the Donegal players and didn’t think that I could manage against them.“I had a couple of years with Down and then I was involved with my son Paul, here with the Derry minors. When the nomination came, I didn’t have to think that long and hard about it.” FORMER DONEGAL COUNTY MANAGER APPOINTED BOSS OF COUNTY DERRY was last modified: September 9th, 2012 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:FORMER DONEGAL COUNTY MANAGER APPOINTED BOSS OF COUNTY DERRYGAAlast_img read more

Glenveagh National Park to receive €250,000 in funding

first_imgDuring his first official visit to Glenveagh National Park on Thursday, Minister of State Michael Ring confirmed funding of €250,000 in capital investment for Glenveagh National Park and wildlife reserves.Fine Gael Minister of State Joe McHugh said, “I am delighted with Minister Ring’s announcement today of funding for Glenveagh National Park, which is part of the Department’s Capital Programme for the National Parks and Wildlife Service, and is aimed at priority capital projects identified within the country’s six National Parks and 80 statutory Nature Reserves.“Over €160,000 has been allocated to upgrading works, which include bridge and road repairs as well as upgrading of waste water facilities, with a further €80,000 being allocated for the control of invasive species. This is fantastic news for Glenveagh National Park.” Glenveagh is a key signature point on the Wild Atlantic Way, the second largest of six National Parks, and the only National Park in Ulster.“289,000 tourists visited Donegal last year and spent over €83million, according to figures compiled by Fáilte Ireland’s Survey of Overseas Travellers for 2015, not taking into account local visitors. The list shows that Donegal received the eighth most number of tourists in the entire country, with many of these using the walkway and cycle tracks throughout the County, with many visiting Glenveagh’s Park.“Donegal Airport was recently voted among the World’s Top Ten most scenic Airports in the World, the Sliabh Liag Cliffs were voted “Most Impressive Site to Visit” by customers of CIE Tours International, along with our Lighthouses in Fanad Head and St. John’s Point receiving International recognition. As well as opportunities such as Star Wars filming coming to Malin Head earlier this year, and the recent Royal Visit by Prince Charles and Camilla to various parts of the County including Glenveagh Castle, Donegal has a huge amount to offer our visitors.“I wish to commend staff members at Glenveagh National Park for their interest and commitment to our environment and to preserving our natural wildlife and driving tourism to the park. I wish to also acknowledge the wonderful work going on in the Glenveagh Bridge House Education Centre, which I had the pleasure of officially opening in 2014, and the ongoing dedication evident here, in making the teaching of science and nature more attractive to our young people.” Glenveagh National Park to receive €250,000 in funding was last modified: November 5th, 2016 by Elaine McCalligShare 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)last_img read more
