T&T newsman stranded in DR
Passport lost on bus trip

hellish experience: Dale Enoch

TRINIDADIAN journalist Dale Enoch is now stranded in the Dominican Republic after his passport went missing.

The I95.5 FM Head of News and Current Affairs and his colleague, Head of Production Jerome Lewis, have been covering the aftermath of the catastrophic 7.0 earthquake which hit Haiti on January 12.

Enoch and Lewis left Trinidad and Tobago on Sunday to head to Haiti. The men boarded a Caribbean Airlines flight to St Maarten where they managed to get on a flight to the Dominican Republic, which borders Haiti.

In the Dominican Republic’s capital, Santo Domingo, the men boarded a bus operated by Caribbean Tours in order to enter Haiti.

’Once you take the bus you have to hand in your passport at the border,’ said Enoch in a telephone interview yesterday.

’We entered Haiti on Tuesday and we got back in the Dominican Republic yesterday (Thursday). I did not get back my passport when we returned. The bus company has refused to take responsibility for the situation. They are saying that they didn’t see the passport. That is ridiculous because I handed in the passport when I bought the ticket to Haiti.’

He added, ’It appears that there is a passport racket going on. Once your passport has a US visa in it, it is attractive.’

Enoch is now advising people going to Haiti to be careful before being trapped in a position like him.

’I was supposed to leave Santo Domingo on Thursday but I was unable to because I don’t have my travel documents. I lost all my bookings. Being trapped in a country is like being trapped in hell,’ he said.

Enoch has been in contact with the Minister of Foreign Affairs Paula Gopee-Scoon, who is assisting in getting him temporary travel documents.

He has also been in contact with the Consulate in Santo Domingo, who is waiting on the Jamaican High Commission, which is the closest to the Dominican Republic, to issue the temporary travel documents.

Enoch is hoping that before the end of the week he will receive the travel documents and be able to return home. Lewis has decided to remain with Enoch until the matter is sorted out.

Cops hold soca star in failed Central robbery
Carolyn Kissoon South Bureau

Thursday, January 21st 2010

   

A popular dancehall/ soca artiste was among three men arrested yesterday, following an attempted robbery in Central Trinidad.

Police said the men attempted to enter KC Confectionery’s headquarters as it was about to open for business around 8 a.m.

The candy factory is located along the Couva Main Road, near the police station.

But as the men were about to enter the compound, an employee raised an alarm and the suspects ran away.

Two were seen leaving the area in a silver Nissan Almera car. The third man got into a taxi.

A report was made at the nearby Couva Police Station, and an all-points bulletin was issued.

Investigators traced the registration number on the car and found it belonged to the entertainer, who lives at Enterprise, Chaguanas.

Acting Cpl Nelson and PC Khan, attached to the Crime Patrol Unit, spotted the car heading east along the Chaguanas Main Road. The car was intercepted at Egret Street, Lange Park, and a Montrose man was detained. The officers, acting on information, went to the Chaguanas Main Road where they arrested the 30-year-old soca artiste.

The third suspect was held in a taxi bound for Chaguanas. The three men were being questioned by police last evening.

They are expected to appear before several identification parades before charges are laid.

Ponting is Player of the Decade
Published: 15 Jan 2010

Ricky Ponting...top player of the decade

Ricky Ponting has been voted Player of the Decade by the overwhelming majority of a jury comprising former and current players and cricket writers. Ponting got 60 points (a first-place vote fetched three points, a second place two, and third place one), 23 more than second-placed Jacques Kallis. Adam Gilchrist was ranked third (29 points), while positions four to eight went to Muttiah Muralitharan, Glenn McGrath, Sachin Tendulkar and Shane Warne. West Indians Brian Lara, eighth, and Shivnarine Chanderpaul were the only two West Indians in the top ten.

Ponting scored more runs and centuries in both forms of the game than any other batsman in the decade, and he was the only one to go past the 9000-mark in both Tests and ODIs. In 107 Tests between 2000 and 2009, he scored 9458 runs at 58.38, and 32 of his 38 centuries. Ponting and Kallis, along with Mohammad Yousuf, were the only batsmen to average more than 58 in Tests in the decade. Ian Chappell, the former Australian captain who was part of the jury, said Ponting’s ability to survive difficult periods and also counterattack successfully, made him the best batsman of the decade. New Zealand captain Daniel Vettori said Ponting was the player of the decade “for his ability to dominate bowlers all across the world for such a long time.”

Tony Greig, the former England captain, said there hadn’t been a modern allrounder who produced as consistently with bat and ball as Kallis did. “Jacques Kallis has been Sobers-like in respect of his all-round contribution for South Africa.” Lara and Tendulkar didn’t fare too well. Lara got just three points, after featuring as No 1 in one juror’s list. Of the 13 jurors who voted for Tendulkar, only three rated him as No 1. Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene, Matthew Hayden, Graeme Smith, Inzamam-ul-Haq and Mohammad Yousuf were among those who did not get any votes. Apart from Chappell and Vettori, the 38-member jury included Graham Gooch, John Buchanan, Tom Moody, Javagal Srinath, Geoff Boycott, Mushtaq Ahmed, Rashid Latif, David Lloyd, Ranjan Madugalle, Tony Greig and Geoff Lawson.

Ponting got 13 No 1 votes, eight more than Kallis. Gilchrist, who got seven No 1 places, lost out overall because he got only three No 2 slots as compared to Kallis nine. A clear indication of Ponting’s domination was that while he didn’t figure at all in nine juror lists, Kallis was missing from 20. A pointer also, to Australia’s pre-eminence as a team is that four of their players make it to the top seven.

Players' body mourn Shillingford's passing
Thursday, December 24th 2009

   

The West Indies Players Association (WIPA) expressed sadness yesterday over the passing of former West Indies fast bowler Grayson Shillingford.

Dominica-born Shillingford died of cancer early yesterday at age 65.

In a press release yesterday afternoon, members and executive of WIPA ’extended condolences to the bereaved relatives’ of Shillingford, the first Dominican to play for West Indies.

The fast bowler played seven Test matches between 1969 and 1972.

He took 15 wickets at an average of 35.80, with his best returns being three for 63 off 26.5 overs against New Zealand at Sabina Park in Kingston in February 1972.

WIPA President and Chief Executive Officer Dinanath Ramnarine described Grayson as ’a model cricketer, who displayed all those fine qualities both on and off the field that added lustre to the game’.

’He could never be faulted for lack of effort in whatever role he played in cricket,’ Ramnarine said.

’WIPA sincerely hopes that the fine legacy Shillingford has left, albeit in a relatively short Test career, will be emulated by all involved in West Indies cricket,’ added the WIPA CEO.

Retired ACP dies at guest house

KILLED: Mc Donald Don Ayres...

POLICE are awaiting an autopsy to find out what killed retired Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Rodwell Murray who died suddenly while at a guest house in Mount Lambert on Tuesday night. However, police sources say they believe Murray may have suffered a massive heart attack while in the company of a female friend.

According to a police report, at about 9.30 pm, Murray, 72, of Grace Gardens in Santa Cruz went to a guest house at Irvin Street with a 49-year-old woman. Police said that a short time later, Murray told his companion that he was not feeling well and collapsed suddenly. He died at the scene.

A party of officers visited the scene along with the District Medical Officer who ordered the body removed to the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex in Mount Hope.

An investigating officer yesterday told Newsday that while they believe Murray suffered a massive heart attack they are still awaiting the result of an autopsy.

In 1992, Murray publicly disclosed the existence of a drug cartel within the police service, which prompted then Prime Minister Patrick Manning to call in the British Scotland yard officers to investigate. Murray’s allegation was subsequently laid in the House of Representatives.

We all want to see T&T in a world cup with billions watching but then again countries are only guarantee to play 3 games anyways.. our present crop of players didn't get any contacts from WC 2006 tournament and i didn't think they would of gotten any for the up and coming tournament in 2010. Our level and style of play is not up to a standard to predict a guaranteed birth at a world cup for eg:Mexico or U.S.A.
 
We are not a power house in Concacaf at the moment and we must achieve that status first. The best time to watching your country play and develop is playing in your confederation zones so stop the blah, blah, blah for now.. enjoy the next 3 games and monitor our development in the very near future.

A film about Geoffrey Holder and his wife, prima ballerina Carmen, will be in the TTFF spotlight....

THE 2009 Trinidad and Tobago Film Festival (TTFF) will run from September 16-20. The theme, “You’re in Focus”, will take on some new initiatives, with Indian Cinema, Black British Cinema and Mexican Cinema and award winning feature films about the Caribbean by directors of the Caribbean which have been receiving international accolades.

This year a heritage element has been introduced to the TTFFl, which will focus on films from India, whose culture has influenced the Caribbean. Also on the agenda, is a showcase on the Black Filmmakers group (BFM), from London.

The popular People’s Choice Awards will also take on a new dimension, with cash prizes of $5000 to be won in the categories Best Dramatic Feature, Best Documentary Feature and Best Short Film. Additionally, there is a US$10,000 special jury prize for the best film that captures the Caribbean spirit, sponsored by the National Gas Company. The Trinidad and Tobago Film Company Award and $30,000 will go to the Best Locally Made Film.

This year, all films will get more airing time, as the TTFF has extended the number of screenings at UWI, in collaboration with UWI Film Programme, with two full days of screenings. MovieTowne in Tobago will host one full week of Festival films, StudioFilmClub moves up to four evenings, and late night screenings have been introduced at MovieTowne (Trinidad) for guest directors and festival favourites. Two films will launch this year’s gala opening ceremony at MovieTowne on September 15 – Rain and Queen of the Brands. There will also be a closing ceremony – a red carpet event, where the winners will be announced. The red carpet affair will feature on film the story of Geoffrey Holder’s life as a dancer with his wife, prima ballerina Carmen, in Carmen and Geoffrey.

Organisers are billing the closing gala as an evening of celebration and entertainment.

Football / Latapy names 22 for Costa Rica battle
« on: June 02, 2009, 03:25:02 AM »
Pro League top-scorer Baptiste among eight ‘locals’
T&T Guardian Reports.


In-form Joe Public midfielder Kerry Baptiste is among eight local players from the Digicel Pro League named by Soca Warriors coach Russell Latapy. Latapy, a former national captain selected a strong 22-man squad to continue preparing for Saturday’s 2010 Concacaf World Cup qualifier against Costa Rica at the Dwight Yorke Stadium, Bacolet, Tobago from 6pm.

Baptiste, who has been overlooked in recent times by national coaches currently leads the Pro League in scoring with seven goals in four matches. He scored hat-tricks in two recent warm-up matches for the Soca Warriors during a 10-0 win over a Tobago XI on Wednesday, and a 5-1 win over Tobago All-Stars on Sunday.

On Sunday, Yorke put the national team ahead in the second-half while Baptiste and Jason Scotland added the others. Five members of the T&T team were given playing time with the Tobago club on request of Latapy. The nippy Baptiste, who can also play on the right flank is joined in the squad by local talents Keyeno Thomas (Joe Public), Makan Hislop (United Petrotrin), Keon Daniel (Caledonia AIA of Morvant/Laventille), Densill Theobald (Caledonia AIA of Morvant/Laventille), Trent Noel (United Petrotrin), Hayden Tinto (Joe Public) and goalkeeper Marvin Phillip of W Connection.

The rest of the team includes out-of-contract duo, captain Dwight Yorke and Dennis Lawrence, Clayton Ince (Walsall), Jan-Michael Williams (Ferencváros), Marvin Andrews (Raith Rovers), Khaleem Hyland (Zulte Waregem), Chris Birchall (LA Galaxy) Carlos Edwards (Sunderland), Silvio Spann (Wrexham), Kenwyne Jones (Sunderland), Avery John (DC United), Cornell Glen (San Jose Earthquakes), Collin Samuel (St Johnstone) and Jason Scotland of Swansea City.

Yesterday, US-based duo Avery John and Cornell Glen, as well as Sunderland striker Kenwyne Jones, were expected to train with the team for the first time—giving coach Latapy a full compliment of players. The squad checked in at the Blue Haven Hotel, Bacolet yesterday.

Looking ahead to the match against the Costa Ricans, who T&T has never defeated in a World Cup qualifier, home or away, Latapy said, “We have had a full week and a little more time of preparations in Tobago with the 22 players that will be in camp going into Saturday’s match. “I’m happy with the response of the players to the training so far. We’ve had a chance to work on different things in relation to the way we would want to contest the upcoming match and from that aspect there were positive signs.

“We’ve worked on getting the players up to a physical level that is conducive to international football and for the remainder of the week there are other areas which we will work on which will get us up to state of readiness for the match.” The former Porto and Glasgow Rangers midfielder took over the coaching job on April 8, after the resignation of Colombian, Francisco Maturana. Samuel, who was a member of the 2006 World Cup squad in Germany is hopeful that he can help T&T pull off a win.

“It’s great to be back in the national team. I’ve been away for some time and with my club in Scotland, things have gone pretty well and I’ve been playing and enjoying my football. On Saturday hopefully we can get it right and bring home the three points. It’s a good opportunity for us to get back into the race for South Africa and there will be no better way of doing it [than] with three points from Saturday’s game against Costa Rica,” the St Johnstone player said. Following the match with Costa Rica, the Soca Warriors head to Mexico for another World Cup qualifier on June 10 at the Azteca Stadium, Mexico City.

T&T 22-man squad:

Goalkeepers

Clayton Ince, Marvin Phillip, Jan-Michael Williams.

Defenders

Dennis Lawrence, Marvin Andrews, Keyeno Thomas, Makan Hislop, Avery John.

Midfielders

Keon Daniel, Khaleem Hyland, Dwight Yorke, Chris Birchall, Densill Theobald, Trent Noel, Carlos Edwards, Silvio Spann, Kerry Baptiste, Collin Samuel, Hayden Tinto.

Forwards

Kenwyne Jones, Cornell Glen, Jason Scotland.

Football / Newsday : TT vs Mexico World Cup qualifiers on
« on: May 01, 2009, 12:17:12 AM »


By CLINT CHAN TACK Friday, May 1 2009

SPORTS MINISTER Gary Hunt yesterday remained hopeful that Trinidad and Tobago’s 2010 World Cup qualifiers against CONCACAF powerhouse Mexico will not be affected by the swine flu virus which has killed 159 persons in that country.

The “Soca Warriors” are scheduled to play the Tri Color in Mexico City on June 10 and again in Port-of-Spain on October 14.

Addressing the post-Cabinet news conference at the Prime Minister’s Diplomatic Centre in St Ann’s, Hunt said no discussions have taken place about postponing either of these matches because of the outbreak of swine flu in Mexico which has since spread to other countries.

The minister said whether those games proceed as planned depends on talks between the World Health Organisation (WHO), FIFA, the TT and Mexican football federations.

“Certainly we would hope that things would proceed as normal so that we could qualify for next year’s World Cup,” he said.

The Warriors’ next World Cup qualifier is against Costa Rica here on June 6. Currently, the situation in Mexico is bleak with their government indicating they were unable to host the Central American and Caribbean Swimming Confederation (CCCAN) Aquatic Championships carded for June 28 to July 5.

President of CCCAN, Orban Mendoza said “It is impossible to determine or guarantee the start of CCCAN Championships in Mexico City due to the risk that exists in contracting the virus.”

He added “It is for this reason that regrettably the CCCAN executive committee has cancelled these Championships in Mexico City and Cuernavaca, Mexico.”

The CCCAN executive committee has set a May 10 deadline for one of the member federations to host all of some of the five disciplines which are; swimming, synchronised swimming, water polo, open water swimming and diving. On Tuesday the Amateur Swimming Association of Trinidad and Tobago (ASATT) held discussions about finding a solution to the debacle with other federations working feverishly to find a solution. ASATT has deferred selections of its team managers pending a solution to the situation.

On Wednesday, the TT Under-17 team was cleared by the Health Ministry to go home, after they returned home from Mexico. The team had been participating in the CONCACAF Under-17 when the swine flu virus outbreak took place there.

Hunt also said preparations for this country’s hosting of the inaugural Caribbean Games in July were on schedule and within budget.

The minister said over 1,200 athletes have already registered to participate in these games.

WEBSITE RAISES MONEY TO FREE O.J.: Group believes he was wrongly convicted of robbery and kidnapping.
(March 18, 2009)
Email to a friend | Print Friendly Buzz up!

      *A new website is asking people to donate money toward funding an appeal in O.J. Simpson's robbery and kidnapping case.

      The Society Against Legal Injustice created the website because it believes the case was mishandled, according to CNN.com.

      The group lists what it calls errors in the case, including the contention that Simpson was targeted because of his controversial acquittal in the killings of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her companion Ronald Goldman in 1995.

       Simpson was sentenced in December to a maximum of 33 years for his role in an armed confrontation with sports memorabilia dealers in a hotel in 2007, and he'll be eligible for parole in nine years. The group estimates that an appeal would cost $1 million.     

       "The unfairness levied against O.J. Simpson in Las Vegas is something no citizen deserves," the site says. "O.J. Simpson is not a wealthy man anymore and is therefore largely at the mercy of the Las Vegas legal system."     

       The group says its goal is "to educate, promote and advocate against judicial discrimination." But the only case the nonprofit organization highlights on the site is Simpson's.
