A fine job is being done with the clean up.”Jackson said the workers are picking up roadway trash ahead of the “bush hog.”“The bush hog starts working at the top of the county and moves clockwise,” he said. “If the program continues to do the job that’s being done now, we need to increase the number of workers. A good job is also being done with weed control and the filling in of potholes.”In other business, the Commissioners approved maternity leave for Kelly Baron, an employee of the Pike County Sheriff’s Department. Wright said phase one of the restoration project will be to renovate the front 40-feet of the building for use as office space and to secure the walls of the back section of the approximately 80×175-foot building and put a roof on the entire building.The Commission also authorized Wright and Harry Sanders, Pike County Administrator, to meet with Alex Whaley, of Whaley Construction Company in Troy, to get an estimate on the cost of the project.Commissioner Joey Jackson, District 6, expressed appreciation to the county’s road department for the work being doing through the work release program.

Team SA shine – but no medals yet

first_img11 August 2008South Africa’s men’s 4 by 100 metres freestyle relay team were dethroned as Olympic champions on Monday in an astonishing final in which the first five teams bettered the world record that the USA had set in the heats.The South Africans had qualified for the final by finishing third in their heat, with the sixth best time overall. They clocked three minutes 13.06 seconds, which bettered their gold medal winning time in Athens by 0.11, and was also a new national record.The USA, swimming without their three fastest sprinters, showed amazing depth as they cracked their own world record of 3:12.46 with a time of 3:12.23. Australia and France also finished beneath the previous mark.Relay finalIn the final, the Americans included Michael Phelps, Garrett Weber-Gale and Jason Lezak, with only Cullen Jones retained from their team that qualified for the final. It proved to be one of the most eye-opening of all the events swum so far in Beijing.Despite their enviable depth, the Americans needed the fastest leg ever swum in a relay to reel in France over the final 100 metres. Lezak clocked 46.06 seconds with the flying start and hauled in Alain Bernard, who holds the world record at 47.50 seconds, to take the USA to victory in 3:08.24. The French touched a mere eight hundredths of a second later.The winning time slashed an astounding 3.99 seconds off the record that had been set in the heats.Australia took third, Italy fourth, and Sweden fifth, all under the old mark. Canada followed in sixth and South Africa’s Roland Schoeman, Darian Townsend, Lyndon Ferns, and Ryk Neethling finished seventh in 3:12.66, which was once again a national record. Great Britain finished eighth.Basson impressiveJean Basson excelled in the 200 metres freestyle heats, winning his race and recording the second fastest time of 1:46.31. US superstar Michael Phelps turned in the fourth fastest qualifying time.Basson then upped the excitement level considerably by winning his semi-final in 1:46.13. Two swimmers in the other semi-final bettered his time, but not by much, so a cracking final is on the cards. Phelps, in his quest for a record eight Olympic gold medals, made it through by finishing third.While South Africa’s swimmers have failed to win a medal in the pool, it is hard to criticise their performances, which have been littered with national and African records.National recordsGerhard Zandberg won his heat in the 100 metres backstroke in an African record of 53.75 seconds, which was the fifth best time of the heats. He couldn’t match that time in the semi-finals, clocking 53.98, which was good for only sixth and saw him fail to make the final.Riaan Schoeman failed to progress beyond the heats in the 400 metres individual medley, but his time of 4:14.04 was a national record. Kathryn Meaklim also couldn’t progress beyond the 400 IM heats, but she, too, set a national record, lopping almost four seconds off the previous mark in 4:37.11.Mandy Loots established yet another SA record in the heats of the 100 butterfly with a time of 58.61. It wasn’t good enough for her to go on to the semi-finals, but Lize-Marie Retief lowered the new record shortly afterwards to 58.20, which earned her a spot in the semis where she finished last in her race.The one-minute barrierCameron van der Burgh became the first African to break through the one-minute barrier in the 100 metres breaststroke in the heats with his time of 59.96 seconds. He was third in his race as Norway’s Alexander Dale Oen won in an Olympic record that was later broken in the final.Van der Burgh was not as sharp in his semi-final as he had been in the heats and his time of 1:00.57 saw him eliminated after he finished fifth in the second race.Suzaan van Biljon qualified for the semi-finals of the women’s 100 metres breaststroke by finishing third in her heat in 1:07.55, which was the fifth best time. The winner of the race, Australia’s Liesel Jones, set an Olympic record of 1:05.64 and then won her semi-final in a slightly slower time. Van Biljon was badly off song in the semi-finals, finishing in a time two seconds slower than her time in the heats, and in last place.Augustyn’s star on the riseIn the men’s cycling road race, won by Spain’s Sammy Sanchez over a tough and hilly 245 kilometre course, John-Lee Augustyn, one day shy of his 22nd birthday, excelled by finishing in 27th place. With his recent strong performance in the Tour de France and his gritty showing in Beijing, Augustyn has confirmed that he is a star in the making.Marissa van der Merwe finished 34th in the women’s road race, while teenager Cherise Taylor settled for 49th place.The SA women’s hockey team got their campaign off to a rough start against defending champions The Netherlands. They were crushed 6-0.Rowing hopesRower Ramon di Clemente kept alive his hopes of adding to the bronze medal he won at the Athens Olympics men’s pairs with Donovan Cech, who has since retired. He and new partner Shaun Keeling comfortably qualified for the semi-finals by finishing second in their heat.Keeling is confident they can challenge for a medal; he says they held something in reserve in their outing.Rika Geyser qualified for the quarterfinals of the women’s single scull by finishing third in her heat.Would you like to use this article in your publicationor on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

Kemar Roach proud of his 5-wicket haul vs England: Just tried to make them uncomfortable

first_imgBrief scores – West Indies (289 & 127/6) lead England (77) by 339 runs. Dowrich (27*), Holder (7*); Moeen (3/41). Full ScorecardEngland all-rounder Moeen Ali complimented the West Indies bowling attack after the visitors were skittled for 77 on the second day of the first Test in Barbados on Thursday.Ali was caught on the fine leg boundary for golden duck, one of Kemar Roach’s five victims on a day when the four-pronged Windies bowling attack produced a brilliant display.Roach did most of the damage, taking five wickets for 17 runs as he wiped out Rory Burns, Jonny Bairstow, Stokes, Jos Buttler and Moeen in a glorious spell after lunch. All of his wickets were concentrated in the space of 27 deliveries.”They bowled fantastically well with good pace,” Moeen told reporters in Bridgetown.The England batting line-up has quality all the way down to number 10, so even after slumping to 44 for three it was reasonable to believe the visitors would still eke out a respectable reply to the hosts’ first innings of 289.But when captain Joe Root was trapped lbw for four by West Indies counterpart Jason Holder, the writing was on the wall.England crumbled to be dismissed for the lowest total in a Test at Kensington Oval, leaving them with a first-innings deficit of 212 runs.Roach’s five wickets for 17 runs off 11 fiery overs came less than seven months after he returned 5-8 against Bangladesh.His fifth wicket was probably the best, Jos Buttler forced on to the back foot by a brutish steepler and feathering behind.advertisement”Today is one of those great days against a top side, so I’m proud of my achievement,” the 30-year-old said, his achievement made all the more sweeter by playing on his home ground.”I want to do that as much as possible for as long as possible for West Indies. It was a special, special feeling.”We just tried to make them uncomfortable. You never expect these days but they do happen. It’s all about doing it again in the final innings.”West Indies finished the day 339 runs ahead on 127-6 in its second innings after Ben Stokes and Moeen Ali led a spirited but seemingly hopeless fightback with the ball.last_img read more

San Diego County Gun Owners respond to shooting at Del Mar Fairgrounds

first_img DEL MAR (KUSI) – The San Diego County Gun Owners PAC has published an official statement in response to the shooting incident that took place during the Ice Cube concert at the Del Mar Fairgrounds.RELATED STORY: Armed suspect shot by deputy outside Del Mar FairgroundsTheir statement reads:“In response to the shooting at the Ice Cube concert at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, the San Diego County Gun Owners PAC calls on the 22nd Agricultural Board to discontinue events that invite violence and, instead, support events that promote family, safety, and law-abiding San Diegans, such as the Crossroads of the West gun show.“Where’s the moral outrage towards the Del Mar Fairgrounds and the Agricultural Association board of directors? The Agricultural Board permitted a rap concert performed by an artist with a history of glorifying violence, drug dealing, gang culture, and degrading women. Guess what happened? Sure enough, violence breaks out with a gun. Yet, the board is entertaining the idea, based on so-called moral grounds, of discontinuing the gun shows attended by thousands of law-abiding San Diegan families who learn gun safety. The board wants to close down or demand additional security for family-oriented events, but then they allow Ice Cube concerts.“Their hypocrisy is obvious: The fairgrounds board has lost all moral authority. We call on the board to realign their priorities with the rule of law and support events that promote safe, legal, responsible activities for families to enjoy, such as the annual county fair and the gun shows.”Michael A.
