• $100 million for better football – Forbes

    first_imgWestern Bureau: It would cost the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA), the governing body for high-school sports in Jamaica, approximately $100 million to make competitions like the daCosta Cup and Manning Cup more desirable, said George Forbes, competitions director. Forbes, in assessing the just-concluded high-school football season, told The Gleaner that while its operations were satisfactory, there remains scope for large-scale improvements, particularly as it relates to playing surfaces. “What the general public doesn’t necessarily know is that ISSA is in need of cash to make competitions like daCosta Cup and the likes better,” Forbes said. “You take the playing fields, for example: We would have liked very much to be in a position to assist schools on that issue, as it would make for more technically sound players,” he stated. “But our budget is not healthy enough to go there.” “Unfortunately, we cannot do so, because we just do not have that amount of cash, which is why we still urge corporate Jamaica to come on board with us as associate sponsors …” Forbes added. ISSA currently gets approximately $30 million a year from title sponsors FLOW, which, according to Forbes, goes into printing jerseys for the approximately 120 teams that took part in the 2016 season. “In addition, each school is also allotted $80,000, and the referee groups also get paid for the season from that,” said Forbes. Seventy-seven schools took part in the 2016 daCosta Cup season; a further 38 teams participated in the Manning Cup. Cornwall College defeated STETHS for the rural area title, while Jamaica College claimed a fourth successive Manning Cup win. Forbes said he was pleased that in spite of challenges, such as a referee strike and postponement of matches due to the passing of hurricane Mathew that disrupted games particularly in the eastern end of the island, it was a successful season from an administrative standpoint for ISSA. “There can be no doubt it was a good season and a successful one when based on how things unfolded over the nearly four months-long competitions,” Forbes said.last_img read more

  • Golf roundup: James hits the mark, wins season opener

    first_img“I came out here fairly cold from the winter off and only started practicing this week,” he said. “It’s a nice surprise and gives me a lot of confidence.” James finished at 15-under 201 on The Old Course at Broken Sound in Boca Raton, Fla., and earned $240,000 for his third career victory on the 50-and-over tour. England’s Mark James won the Allianz Championship on Sunday in his first tournament of the year, closing with a 4-under 68 for a two-stroke victory over Champions Tour player of the year Jay Haas. James spent the previous three weeks skiing in the French Alps. Stadler double-bogeyed the 14th and 16th en route to a 74 and a 9-under total. Nick Price closed with a 68 to tie for 20th at 6 under in his Champions Tour debut. ALPG Tour Karrie Webb completed a two-week Australian sweep, winning the Australian Ladies Masters for the sixth time. The Australian star had a comfortable four-stroke lead through much of the back nine at Royal Pines before bogeying the 17th and 18th holes for a 4-under 68 and a two-stroke victory. European PGA Sweden’s Peter Hedblom won the Malaysian Open for his first tour title since 1996, closing with a 4-under 68 for a one-stroke victory over France’s Jean-Francois Lucquin.

Eaks (68), Morris Hatalsky (70) and Brad Bryant (69) tied for third at 12 under. James, tied for the lead with Haas and Craig Stadler at the beginning of play Sunday, birdied six of the first 12 holes to reach 16 under. James bogeyed the 14th to drop back to 15 under, where he stayed for the final four holes. James’ most difficult moment of the day came when he bogeyed the nine hole for his first bogey of the tournament. James took a calculated risk on the ninth when he took off his shoe to hit a ball out of shallow water, but only managed to chip it about 2 feet. Haas and Stadler also bogeyed the hole to stay one stroke behind. last_img read more

  • Great staff is like a second family

    first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Matt ReeseI love our staff. I am so fortunate to have the chance to work with so many talented, kind caring folks. From the late Ed Johnson to the current Dale Minyo I have had the opportunity to work with (and learn from) some of the very best. What an honor and privilege!With so many summer events to attend around the state, we are very rarely all in the same place at once. And, with some staff changes this year, I thought the recent Farm Science Review would be a great chance to highlight our current fantastic staff and what they do for the team to keep you up to date. Bart and Sheryl JohnsonJohn Motter with the Ohio Soybean Council presented the Outstanding Achievement Award to Bart and Sheryl Johnson a few years back.We are like a family and they are kind of like the parents (or in Bart’s case sometimes an ornery big brother). Bart is the son of Ed Johnson who started the company. Bart heads up sales and fixes everything that goes wrong. Sheryl keeps everyone (most importantly Bart) in line and keeps the office running smoothly with billing and other extensive behind-the-scenes efforts.  Jeff Reese and Risë LabigOur dedicated marketing specialists Jeff Reese and Risë Labig put in many miles visiting with clients during the show.These are our two marketing specialists that seldom get credit, but without the incredible job they do serving our advertisers we would not get paid. To say I appreciate their tireless work is an understatement. I think they should both wear pedometers to calculate the miles they travel during the week of the Farm Science Review getting around to see everyone.  Beth CarperShe handles Traffic for Ohio Ag Net and a couple of other radio networks. This means she coordinates any radio order that comes in with the radio stations we work with throughBack in 2014, Beth and her husband Mike Carper were recognized with the OCA Industry Excellence Award, sponsored by Ohio’s Country Journal.our network. She does a great job keeping it “Traffic” and not a traffic jam. Beth also has plenty to sort out in the way of radio billing. She keeps all of this straight and I’m not sure how she handles all of those numbers and various accounts. That’s one reason I’m a writer. She helps with OCJ proofreading as well.    Kim LemmonKim has had endure working in the office beside me for 20+ years, which is a big ask of anyone. Our jobs on the print side of the business have undergone extensive change. We have both adapted with the times, though. Kim does MANY things including: layout andFor the last 20+ years (since June of 1999) Kim Lemmon and Matt Reese have worked with owner and publisher Bart Johnson at the OCJ.design for OCJ, web ads, website design, ad coordination with the marketing specialists, regular work with our great columnists, deadline setting (and enforcing), and numerous other things. Those of us who work for Bart understand that a substantial portion of our job description includes “and other.” This applies to no one more than Kim.   Dusty SonnenbergOn the Crop Tour, Dusty only came out of this Defiance County corn field with the two ears he went in with — there were none to sample from the plants.Dusty has been an amazing addition to our team. He has an extensive and impressive background in Ohio agriculture and he brings wealth of experience to his joint position with our team and the Ohio Soybean Council as he heads up the Ohio Field Leader project. You have already seen quite a bit of his fantastic work in the last few issues and there will be more coming from the CCA, farmer and former Extension educator turned huge asset to Ohio’s Country Journal. Dale MinyoDale interviewed Bill Lehmkuhl from Precision Agri Services Inc.Dale is the lead broadcaster for Ohio Ag Net and among the most well-known names in Ohio agriculture. He grew up in Noble County and enjoyed plenty of success in FFA, enough to catch the attention of Ed Johnson. Dale worked with Ed for years with ABN and now continues to work with his son Bart as “The voice you know with news you trust.”  Kolt BuchenrothDale and Kolt worked on afternoon programming during the FSR.Kolt’s passion for what we do, knowledge of technology, skills in video editing, and deep affinity for b-roll video make Kolt a valuable part of the team. He is still a student at Ohio State, but he has more radio and video experience than many much-older people in the industry. Kolt has an exciting future ahead and I really appreciate his tech-savvy wisdom when I can’t figure out how to do something. Dave RussellDave Russell interviewed Matt Hutchison from Seed Consultants, Inc.My marketing specialist brother Jeff Reese and I went to Cory-Rawson High School. Dave went to the same high school, just in a different decade. He brings a tremendous amount of farm radio experience to our team. Dave began in radio at WRFD in Columbus.
