Third went to Onal Mitchell of Trinidad and Tobago in 48.72. ” I just came out and did what I had to do to win the event,” said Taylor.

Annual Rupununi Ranchers’ Rodeo launched

first_imgCow milking, calf and sheep roping, bareback bronco (horse riding), and bull riding were just a few of the activities to which thousands of local and overseas patrons were treated at the 2018 Rupununi Ranchers’ Rodeo on Saturday at Lethem Town in Region Nine, Upper Takutu/Upper Essequibo.The Easter weekend event, held under the theme “Young Ranchers-Into the Future”, saw cowboys and girls dressed as vaqueros entertaining the crowd with dances and bullwhip cracking.Scenes from the annual Rupununi Ranchers’ RodeoPresent were Minister of State, Joseph Harmon, along with the Minister of Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs, Sydney Allicock, and Minister of Business, Dominic Gaskin. Regional Chairman Brian Allicock and newly elected Mayor of Lethem, Kerry Jarvis, and members of the diplomatic corps were also in attendance.During his feature address at the opening ceremony, held at the Rupununi Ranchers’ Rodeo (RRR) ground, Minister Allicock spoke of the importance ofMinister of State, Joseph Harmon, sitting astride a horse; and Minister of Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs, Sydney Allicock, holding the reins, share a light momentpromoting such an annual event — which brings together not only the people from across the regions, but also persons from across the world, such as the United Kingdom (UK), United States (US), Canada and neighbouring Brazil and Venezuela.Minister Allicock said it is no coincidence that the event is held during Easter, an important festival in the Christian calendar that speaks of faith, resurrection and the promise of eternal life.“It tells us that in order for us to succeed in life, we sometimes have to roll away the stone that locks us away. Once that is done, we can use this opportunity to rise up with new vigour and purpose with the full extent of our dreams, realise our goals, and attain self-actualization,” she advised.The minister also noted that planning is crucial to moving the region forward. “As we celebrate this Easter, and more particularly this rodeo, we must reflect on our achievements and shortcomings as a region, and also look to the future through new, far-reaching lenses… The President often reminds us that this region is bigger than Costa Rica…We need to have discussions, planning, and by knowing exactly what is needed to move the region forward.”Minister Allicock reminded of the huge potential the region possesses. He urged those gathered to utilise the resources without destroying the environment, to generate income, and create employment.“Lethem is also the gateway to South America; soon we will have a new international airport that will serve as a regional hub. We also have the trail that will be developed into a road. This will open opportunities for more industries… We, as a Government, must equip our young people with the necessary skills for these anticipated developments.” He said the Green Enterprise Development Centre at Bina Hill will assist in that regard.last_img read more

More talks today on new USC Coliseum lease offer

first_imgThe Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Commission is scheduled to meet behind closed doors today to discuss USC’s latest proposal to lease the 84-year-old stadium. The university presented the proposal Monday, offering to keep playing football at the Coliseum, but only if the commission committed to make repairs at the stadium. Under the USC proposal, the university would take over operation of the stadium and make the upgrades itself if the commission failed to raise money for them. Todd Dickey, USC’s senior vice president and general counsel, wrote in a letter to commission General Manger Pat Lynch that the commission’s most recent offer — submitted Thursday — was an improvement over previous plans, but offered “no firm commitment on the part of the commission to repair and restore the Coliseum within any given time period.” USC’s lease to play its football games at the Coliseum ended with its Dec. 1 game against UCLA. Negotiations for a long-term lease were proceeding well until early October, when the commission notified USC it would need to raise rent by 10 percent — $108,000 a year — to cover costs handed down by the state, according to the Daily News. An impasse ensued, prompting USC to begin negotiations with Pasadena’s Rose Bowl for a one-year lease, beginning with the 2008 season, with an option for a second. Rose Bowl operators unanimously agreed Dec. 6 to delay making an agreement with USC, citing the need for UCLA, which has used the Rose Bowl as its home football stadium since 1982, to comment on a possible contract. USC has played at the Coliseum since 1923, the year the stadium opened. The commission is seeking to form a partnership with USC in selling naming rights to the stadium to pay for much of its renovation.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhicker: Clemson demonstrates that it’s tough to knock out the champ“Instead, your proposal appears to ask USC to commit to a long-term lease and to rely on the commission’s ability to raise sufficient funds through naming rights and sponsorship programs in the hope that the commission will be able to make the necessary repairs to the Coliseum someday,” Dickey wrote. “Should you not be able to raise such funds, USC would be left to languish in an ever-deteriorating facility rather than the state-of-the-art college football facility USC envisions and to which the Southern California community is entitled.” Dickey said in the proposal that if the commission wants to maintain control over the facility, it must commit to making stadium upgrades “over a very definitive time period.” The counterproposal sent to the commission gives the panel “the first opportunity to try to raise the funds and do the improvements itself, but if it cannot succeed, then the lease reverts to a master lease to USC and requires USC to raise the funds and do the necessary repairs,” Dickey wrote. “This proposal ensures that either way the community gets an improved Coliseum.” last_img read more

An evening with a music legend

first_img “In teaching, you get to pass along what you love to do. Some of those rockers were never given chordal training because there aren’t a lot of chords in rock ‘n’ roll. I’m helping teach them the basics.” Picking up a guitar, she started to scat vocally while her fingers flew over the strings, picking out familiar licks from her days of working with Quincy Jones, Ritchie Valens, Sam Cooke and the Righteous Bros., as well as the clubs of South Los Angeles in the 1950s. “Back before rock ‘n’ roll, there were some hot jazz clubs in L.A. I felt safer on Santa Barbara Avenue than I did in North Hollywood,” she said. “It didn’t matter if you were black or white, if you could play jazz.” She said the Watts riots and peace marches of the 1960s – as well as the advent of surf music and rock ‘n’ roll – changed everything. Clubs closed up and the money trail turned to studio work. “I laid down tracks for Glen Campbell and Leon Russell and all sorts of young kids who were big singers that graduated into stars, but they couldn’t read music well,” she said. “None of us (studio musicians) really wanted to be stars, so the record companies wouldn’t show us, but the money was good. VALENCIA – K.C. Manji, head of the music department at College of the Canyons, can’t believe her luck. On Oct. 28, her childhood idol, legendary bass player Carol Kaye, will play with the college’s symphonic band and jazz ensemble. “The very first bass guitar book I got was one written by her,” Manji said. “She’s my hero. This woman is really a legend in her field. It’s simply an honor to have her perform with us.” Kaye, an upbeat 70-year-old grandmother now, lives in a quiet neighborhood in Newhall but shows no signs of slowing down. She answers an average of 150 e-mails a day from fans and musicians looking for advice or tips on their craft, information she willingly shares. “You have to give when you’re older,” she said. “I’m not slowing down. In fact, I’m speeding up. “They didn’t want to tell the people that there were a few old farts playing the music. All the cute young guys were in front, but we were the ones who cut the hits.” Her resume of bass, electric guitar and jazz hits is too long to fit on one legal-size piece of paper, but such names as Ray Charles, Ella Fitzgerald, The Supremes, Henry Mancini, the Doors, Simon & Garfunkel, the Beach Boys, Mel Torme, Tony Bennett, Stevie Wonder and Barbra Streisand jump off the page. She was the sound of the menacing truck in fledgling filmmaker Steven Spielberg’s “Duel,” just one of the hundreds of movies and TV shows she’s scored, making hers a nameless sound you’ve heard a million times. “If you have listened to the radio or watched TV since 1958, you’ve heard Carol Kaye,” reads her Web site. “A bunch of bad movies were saved by brilliant scores,” she said. “In those days, before synthesizers, we worked with live musicians and had great composers like Lalo Schifrin, John Williams and Billy Goldenberg. It’s just not the same anymore. Now each instrument comes in by themselves and lays down a track and everything’s mixed together.” Raised by musician parents, Kaye was working her craft at the age of 9, playing jazz and bebop guitar. “Jazz didn’t pay the bills, though, but studio work did,” she said. “I worked as a cost accountant, then technical typist during the day and played my music at night.” Married and divorced at an early age, she found herself with three children to raise. Despite an offer to go on the road with George Shearing, she chose to stay in the studio and work from gig to gig, fueled by caffeine and vending machine food, but making a decent living. “Working with the guys was the best thing in the world,” she said. “I grew up poor, but it’s easy for a woman if she has her act together. When you’re good at what you do, sex doesn’t matter.” Her dedication to studio work has left her with a lifetime of memories of working with other musicians that are legends in their own way. She recalls Valens’ silent warmth and the energy of Mel Torme and Joe Cocker. When she was ready to lay down tracks for a new TV show featuring Bill Cosby, she looked at the blank piece of paper composer Quincy Jones laid in front of her. “There’s nothing here, Q – what do you want me to do?” she recalled. “He told me, ‘I want you to play what you feel,’ and that led to the theme everybody knows. I’ll be doing that one at the concert at the college.” These days, she does studio work “once in a blue moon,” choosing to focus on club performances and other live appearances. But she yearns for the day when musicians filled the hall to combine their talents and passions to make a hit. “When you play hungry like we used to do,” she said, “you’re gonna have fantastic music.” For information on Kaye, visit www.carolkaye.com.
