first_imgNursery and primary school students and teachers from across Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice) took to the streets in Linden on Friday as they brought the curtains down on this year’s children’s Mashramani celebrations with the annual costume parade.One of the floats during Region 10’s costume and float paradeGlittery faces and colourful costumes engulfed the streets as the procession pranced from the Five Corner area, along Republic Avenue before heading to the Mackenzie Sports Club (MSC). The costumes were designed under the theme: “Folklores in Guyana”. Gyrating to the sounds of Soca music, the students made their way along the path as hundreds lined the streets to get a glimpse of the spectacle. At the MSC, the displays of cultural themes were judged based on their originality and how well they depicted the spirit of Mashramani. In the nursery category, Pine Street Nursery maintained its position with first place. Coomacka Nursery placed second while Republic Avenue Nursery secured third place. In the Primary category, Amelia’s Ward Primary gained first place with their costume depiction, “Mermadaleons in action”, while St Aidan’s Primary placed second and Watooka Day Primary School copped third place.last_img read more

Clippers suffer a breakdown

first_imgNEW YORK – The New York Knicks spent the first half looking like the team they have been for too long: inconsistent on offense and ineffective on defense. Then suddenly, they turned into the team they think they can become. “When you’re on the road you can’t do that, because we all know teams will get back in it, start making some shots and getting their team back in it,” Thomas said. “They just turned it up and started making shots. They kept cutting into the lead and once they got the lead it was catch-up ball for us from there on out.” The Clippers got within threepoints in the fourth quarter, but New York regained control behind Crawford, who scored 10 points in the period. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Stephon Marbury scored 12of his 15 points in an early second-half run that overwhelmed the Clippers and turned the game around, sending New York to a 102-90 victory Tuesday night. Jamal Crawford and Eddy Curry each scored 23 points to lead New York, which shot poorly and defended worse in the first two quarters before controlling the second half of its second consecutive victory. center_img New York never led in the first half and trailed by as many as 12 points. But the Knicks stormed out of halftime with a 24-4 spurt, turning a 10-point deficit into a 10-point lead in a span of 9 minutes and handing the Clippers their second straight loss. Elton Brand had 22 points and 13 rebounds for the Clippers, who lost for the third time in 10 games and fell to 1-2 on their seven-game Eastern trip. Reserve Tim Thomas also had 22 points. “I thought that unfortunately the way we started the third quarter was the difference in the game,” Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy said. “Came out and went 0 for our first seven possessions and then made some defensive mistakes the other way, gave them some momentum.” Down 53-43 at halftime, New York scored the first 10 points of the second half, tying the score after the second of Marbury’s two consecutive layups with 8:24 remaining.

Chargers in limbo again

first_imgNFL: The team will practice in Arizona, then see where it plays Sunday against Texans. By Bernie Wilson THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SAN DIEGO – The San Diego Chargers boarded a plane for Phoenix on Tuesday night, not knowing where or when they’ll play their next game. Qualcomm Stadium is being used as an evacuation center. An estimated 10,000 people were there on Tuesday under smoky skies. “Our attitude is, we’re going to practice for three days, and give us a buzz and let us know where we’re going,” Smith said as the Chargers lined up at their headquarters to board buses to the airport. “Wherever it is, or whatever day it is, we’ll do the best we can to get a victory against Houston. That’s where it’s at.” The Cardinals have a bye Sunday, and their stadium, located in Glendale, is scheduled to host a motorcycle show Friday through Sunday afternoon. Qualcomm Stadium general manager Erik Stover said the building can be ready to host an NFL game by Sunday, but it all depends on when the fires are contained. “The longer it goes, the less likely,” Stover said. “We’re an evacuation site until we’re no longer needed.” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has been meeting with Chargers president Dean Spanos and others. Goodell said the options include playing the game in Los Angeles, at Arizona State’s Sun Devil Stadium – the Cardinals’ former home – at Texas Stadium in Dallas or Reliant Stadium, the Texans’ home field. The precedent for playing at Reliant Stadium would be the New Orleans Saints playing a “home” game against the New York Giants at the Meadowlands after Hurricane Katrina. That move was later criticized. Regardless, flying to Arizona is a drill familiar to 15 players on the active roster. Four years ago to the week, the Chargers were forced to move a Monday night game against Miami – and Junior Seau’s much-anticipated homecoming – to Tempe on short notice because of deadly wildfires. As it is now, Qualcomm was being used as an evacuation center and the air quality was awful. “It’s a little weird,” running back LaDainian Tomlinson said. “It wasn’t expected. Two times in my career. You’re just thankful you haven’t lost a house. This is the closest I’ve come to losing one, though. It was burning on my property line.” Tomlinson and his wife had to flee their suburban home early Monday. “I could see the fires coming,” said Tomlinson, the reigning NFL MVP. “You wake up at 4 o’clock in the morning. You get the phone call, `You need to evacuate.’ I see the sky was orange, so I’m like, `It’s serious.’ “You just adapt to it and deal with it. Everybody is. Look at all those people over there at the stadium.” Some 46 players, coaches and staff members had to evacuate, including Coach Norv Turner and quarterback Philip Rivers. Rivers said smoke was coming under the doors of his suburban home, and he and his wife and three young daughters got out before the evacuation orders came. He said his house was OK. “It was scary,” Rivers said. “A lot of us haven’t experienced it. A lot of us were not here in 2003. It’s such an unknown, too. You don’t know what it’s doing.” Rivers said the players are in a good frame of mind. “All our families are safe. That’s what’s most important. Obviously we feel for the people who were more directly affected. There is going to be a game this week. We’ve got to put all the focus there. From what I gather, we’ve all been able to do that.” The Chargers (3-3) are coming off their bye. After a three-game losing streak, they righted many of their early season wrongs by routing the Broncos, 41-3, in Denver and then beating the Oakland Raiders, 28-14.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Their superstar running back knows his home survived the firestorm. Their general manager hasn’t heard if he’ll have a house to come home to. While they spent Monday taking care of their families, it was time to get back to business. “We need to get ready to play football,” said General Manager A.J. Smith, who evacuated his home and doesn’t know if it’s still standing. The Chargers will practice at the Arizona Cardinals’ headquarters in Tempe today, Thursday and Friday. They packed for any eventuality, since the NFL and the Chargers are still debating what to do about Sunday’s game. last_img
