Three more Grenada police officers charged in beating death

first_img Share Flag of Grenada. Photo credit: mapsofworld.comST GEORGE’S, Grenada — Three more Royal Grenada Police Force officers were charged with manslaughter on Sunday in the death of a Grenadian-born Canadian resident Oscar Bartholomew.Edward Gibson, Shaun Ganness and Ruddy Felix had been detained in custody since Friday before being charged.Two other police officers, Kenton Hazzard and Wendell Sylvester, were earlier charged with manslaughter on Saturday.All five police officers are due to appear in court on Tuesday.According to the Bartholomew family’s lawyer, more charges could be brought, as witness accounts indicate as many as eight officers might have been involved.Bartholomew, 39, who is originally from Grenada but a permanent resident of Canada, had returned to his homeland for an annual family visit. He died last Tuesday, after allegedly being beaten by a group of police officers.The incident may have resulted from a case of mistaken identity outside the police station in St David’s, when Bartholomew is said to have mistaken a plainclothed police officer for an old family friend and didn’t realize the mistake until after he ran over, hugged and lifted the woman off the ground.Although Bartholomew reportedly put the woman down after realizing his mistake, other plainclothed officers considered it an assault on an officer, and took Bartholomew inside the police station. While in custody, Bartholomew was allegedly beaten and later died in hospital of his injuries. His death certificate gives the cause of death as head trauma, including internal bleeding and skull fractures.The incident has caused a national and international uproar.

Enmore bowlers defend 103 to win T20 Cricket Festival

first_imgA large, colourful and vibrant crowd couldn’t ask for a better Sunday evening last as Enmore Community Centre Cricket Club (ECCCC) produced a clinical bowling effort to stun Strathavon in the final of the club’s anniversary T20 Cricket Festival.Playing at the Enmore Community Centre ground, ECCCC bowlers stoutly defended a total of 103 made in 17.2 overs, by dismissing Strathavon for a paltry 57 with two overs to spare.The 46-run victory for ECCCC meant the Bheemraj Ramkelawan-led side had exacted revenge on Strathavon, who won a T20 final between the two sides in 2016 at the Fairfield ground.The victory was perfect for the occasion, as it was the first time in the club’s history that floodlight hardball cricket was being played at the venue.Ramkelawan called correctly at the toss and swiftly decided to take first strike, a decision that paid immediate dividends as ECCCC raced to 44 off the first five overs. Openers Ramkelawan (21) and Imran Hassan (14) were particularly severe on anything remotely loose, giving their team a flying start.However, with both falling in quick succession, the innings went into decline, and had it not been for a quick-fire 22 from Navindra Gobin down the order ECCCC faced the danger of being dismissed for a double-figure total.Kevin Latiff and Naresh Samaroo bagged 3-17 and 3-19 respectively for Strathavon, whose batsmen were harbouring thoughts of an early night with such a small target to chase.The difficulty with batting under the light however, didn’t escape Strathavon and their batsmen made a mess of a run-chase that never really got started. Wickets tumbled like rolling pins in the face of some disciplined bowling from the ECCCC bowlers, led by spinner Christopher Surat, who claimed 3-10 off four overs.Satesh Jainarine kept a stranglehold on proceedings, conceding just six runs from his four overs and also claiming two wickets. For his superb bowling effort, Surat was named Man-of-the-Match.Strathavon had earlier qualified for the final following a 117-run whipping of Helena Number One and Two in the opening match of the day. Batting first, Strathavon took full advantage of a superb batting wicket and lightning fast outfield to pile up 205-4 from the allotted 20 overs.The nature of the pitch was demonstrated by the high number of sixes in the innings- 12 in total. Skipper Gobindram Hemraj, the elder brother of Guyana Jaguars batsman Chandrapaul Hemraj, led the way with a classy innings of 61, the left-hander cracking six fours and two sixes.Sewchand Budhu bludgeoned five maximums in a shot-filled 55, while opener Richard Chatura contributed 34 (3x4s, 2x6s). Ganesh Sugrim (22) and Zaki Salim (18*) did the finishing touches towards the back-end of the innings.K. Seedyal took 2-31 for Helena Number One and Two, who just couldn’t find momentum in the run-chase, falling for 88 in 19 overs. Mohan Ronald, who was eventually named Man-of-the-Match, was outstanding with the ball, claiming 5-18 from four overs. R. Ramkission made 20 and J. Persaud 19.In the other game of the day, Lower East Coast outplayed Upper East Coast by 61 runs in a 15-over contest. Man-of-the-Match Ryan Hemraj smashed a belligerent 52 (5x6s, 2x4s) to set up Lower East Coast’s total of 186-6, with Sunil Singh chipping in with 35 (3x4s, 2x6s), J. Wilson (26*) and C. McPherson (22).Ferron Kadir took 2-17 for Upper East Coast, who finished on 125-3 at the completion of the overs. D. Persaud made 43 (3x4s, 3x6s) and M. Bameswari 32 (4x6s), while S. Budhu had 2-11 off three overs.Regrettably, the other planned game between Enmore Masters and Everest Masters had to be called off due to unforeseen circumstances. Funds garnered from the event will go towards cricket development at ECCCC and the club’s upcoming trip to Trinidad and Tobago.The event was sponsored by Rajin Auto Paint, Nexa Autocolor, R.Kissoon Construction Service, Motor Trend Auto Spares and Repairs, Radesh Furniture Est. D&E Tent Rental, Trophy Stall, Cone Island, Banks DIH, SE Auto Sales and Auto Spares, Cricket Zone USA and Young Takers Sound System.last_img read more

MLB Network documentary on ’80s Cardinals takes in-depth look at unforgettable, unique team

first_imgDon Denkinger, the first base umpire in Game 6 of the 1985 World Series, called the Royals’ Jorge Orta safe at first to lead off the ninth with the Cardinals leading 1-0. Orta, replays clearly and definitively showed, was not safe, as Todd Worrell caught the ball, with his foot on the bag, before Orta touched the base. From there, as John Tudor says in the documentary, “Then all heck broke loose.” A single, a passed ball, an intentional walk and a blooper later, and the Royals scored twice to win the game 2-1. Kansas City crushed the shell-shocked Cardinals 11-0 in Game 7. Andy Van Slyke summed up the thoughts of his Cardinals teammates — and Cardinals fans everywhere — with the above quote from the documentary. The latest thoroughly enthralling baseball documentary produced by the good folks running the “MLB Network Presents” series focuses on the Whitey Ball era in St. Louis: “Birds of a Different Game: The ’80s Cardinals.” The show makes its debut on MLB Network at 8 p.m.. ET tonight (Tuesday) and will be rebroadcast often (check the schedule here). From 1982 to 1987, the Cardinals, with manager Whitey Herzog enacting his brand of baseball and shortstop Ozzie Smith scooping up everything on the left side of the infield, made the World Series three times, winning once and playing Game 7s the other two years. This documentary looks at what made those Cardinals unique, what made them successful and what made them so damn entertaining.  MORE: Spring training reporting dates for all 30 MLB teamsThe Cardinals focused on speed and defense and gave only a passing thought to power. As Herzog says in the documentary, “Give us 10 singles, and we’re gonna entertain you.”It’s an eye-opening look at a successful team that looks very different than most successful teams heading into 2020. But would they be successful today? “I would love,” early 1980s Cardinals first baseman Keith Hernandez says with a big grin in the documentary, “to be able to put us in the league today and see how we’d do. They would have heart attacks.”Without giving everything away, let’s take a look at some of the highlights from the show. That’s Whitey Ball for ya1. Herzog, obviously, loved to be aggressive on the bases. In the 1982 season, seven players swiped at least 11 bags, with Lonnie Smith’s 68 leading the way. But here’s what you need to know about why Herzog’s philosophy was different: He would send anyone, at any time. If the moment was right, it didn’t matter. It’s just a moment in a montage in the documentary, but it’s a moment that illustrates Herzog’s philosophy in a better way than Ozzie Smith or Willie McGee or Vince Coleman ever could. In the 12th inning of a game against the Giants on Aug. 22, with St. Louis clinging to a narrow two-game lead over the Phillies in the NL East, the Cardinals loaded the bases on three singles — shocking, eh? — by Glenn Brummer, Ozzie Smith and Willie McGee. With two outs and David Green at the plate (he was batting .339 at the time), Herzog sent Brummer home. As in, he called for a strait steal of home plate by his backup catcher, a rookie who had exactly one stolen base in his career and never more than seven in any minor league season. The moment was right. San Francisco lefty Gary Lavelle had a slow, looping delivery to the plate, and Herzog knew it. He also knew the Giants would never see it coming. He was right. Brummer was safe, the Cardinals won the game and Whitey Ball triumphed again. 2. The 1982 World Series between the Brewers and Cardinals featured two lineups that were, on paper, about as different as could be. Milwaukee’s lineup — which earned the nickname Harvey’s Wallbangers — pounded out 216 home run on the season. The Cardinals hit 67. Brewers outfielders Gorman Thomas and Ben Ogilve combined for 73 themselves. George Hendrick hit 19 to lead the Cardinals; six — SIX — Brewers hit at least 19 homers. In the seven-game World Series, though? The Brewers hit five homers and the Cardinals hit four — two by rookie Willie McGee in Game 3 and two in Game 6 (Darrel Porter and Keith Hernandez). 3. In 1985, second baseman Tommy Herr had 110 RBIs and just eight homers. How rare is a HR/RBI combo like that? Well, in 1945 Dixie Walker had eight homers and 124 RBIs. Herr is the ONLY player since then to have at least 110 RBIs with eight or fewer home runs. Since 1981 (using the strike year to arbitrarily define the modern era), only three other players have reached 90 RBIs with eight or fewer home runs. Know who’s next on the list? Cardinals first baseman Keith Hernandez, who had 94 RBIs and seven homers in 1982.Oh, and in 1987, Herr had 83 RBIs and just two homers. Well, that would never happen today.1. In the 1982 NLCS, the Braves took a 1-0 lead into the bottom of the fifth inning, but with one out, the skies opened up and rain started. It didn’t stop. And because the Cardinals, the home team, didn’t have a chance to finish their fifth inning, it wasn’t an official game. And because it wasn’t an official game, the first 4 1/2 innings were just wiped out, as if they’d never happened. Today, the game would just be picked up the next day. Then? Sorry, Braves. The Cardinals swept the next three games to win the NLCS, by a combined score of 17-5. 2. In the 1982 World Series, future Hall of Famer Bruce Sutter, the Cardinals’ closer, pitched 2 1/3 innings in Game 2 and 2 1/3 innings in Game 3, both Cardinals wins. 3. 3. In Game 6 of the 1982 World Series, rookie John Stuper took the mound for the Cardinals, with his team trailing the Brewers three games to two. Future Hall of Famer Don Sutton was on the mound for Milwaukee. The game was delayed twice — once for 26 minutes in the fifth and again for 2 hours, 13 minutes in the sixth — but Stuper just kept pitching. He finished the game, allowing just four hits and one run in a 13-1 win for the Cardinals. His final pitch came five hours after his first pitch. Can you imagine that happening in today’s game? Quotable1. “Smith corks one down the line …”Can’t talk about the 1980s Cardinals without mentioning Ozzie Smith’s home run in Game 5 of the NLCS between the Cardinals and Dodgers, of course, or the call from Jack Buck — “Go crazy folks, go crazy!” The solo blast — the first of Smith’s career batting left-handed — gave the Cardinals a 3-2 win and sent the series back to LA for Game 6 with the Cardinals holding a 3-2 series lead.2. “That’s a big fly, bitches!”It would have been impossible to top Smith’s home run, but Jack Clark came close. The very next game, Clark’s two-out, two-on home run against Tom Niedenfuer — yep, the same guy who gave up Ozzie’s homer in Game 5 — put the Cardinals ahead 7-5 in the top of the ninth inning. The underrated moment of that moment? Dodgers left fielder Pedro Guerrero throwing his glove to the grass in disgust as he watches Clark’s no-doubt homer sail over his head. Writing about this moment (among other moments) today. Story soon …— Ryan Fagan (@ryanfagan) January 28, 2020And that quote? That’s what Clark said to his teammates, according to Terry Pendleton, as he jogged toward first base, as the ball cleared the wall in left field. 3. “At that point, we were blaming Don Denkinger for what happened.”last_img read more

Armed Men Allegedly Poison New Georgia Well

first_imgResidents in New Georgia on Somalia Drive Road have alleged that some unknown individuals are poisoning wells and hand pumps “to kill [them] in the name of Ebola.”Mr. Franklin Friday, who spoke to the Daily Observer, reported that at about 4 a.m. Monday, August 4, they saw two gigantic individuals (unknown), armed with guns, using a medical syringe and attempting to drop a liquid substance into the well that is being used by thousands of homes in the area.As a result, Mr. Friday noted that people in the community are afraid, because he said many people are dying from these deadly acts and claiming that it is “Ebola.”According to him, after noticing the unusual acts by these individuals, they immediately contacted their lawmaker (Rep. Saah Joseph) to look in the matter.When Rep. Joseph arrived, he brought along with him some officers of the Liberia National Police (LNP) and instructed them to lock the  well and contact other relevant government agencies to conduct testing on these wells. If proven to be contaminated, the community will launch a serious investigation into the matter.Also speaking, Buston Kolliegbo, who resides in the area, said that the Ebola issues have become so alarming that the whole nation has been affected economically and socially.  There is a complete breakdown of citizens’ health care because of the different ways in which the problem is being tackled.“Nobody is having exact information as to the diagnosis and everybody is confused. So the [well poisoning] incident that happened yesterday at the [New Georgia] junction is a wakeup call on the government, especially the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare (MOH&SW), to test the water in every well,” Kolliegbo suggested.     Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
