By Dialogo May 08, 2012 In the context of an international peace operation and its multidimensional character, deployed military units carry out a variety of tasks in accordance with their primary mission, but at the same time engage in cooperation activities in the deployment area for the benefit of the most vulnerable inhabitants of the area of responsibility. It is in this context that the Chilean-Ecuadorean Combined Company of Horizontal Construction Engineers has carried out an ongoing cooperation program with different entities with few resources, under the guidance of the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH), with the objective of supporting the directives of the UN’s office for civil-military cooperation – known in the international arena as CIMIC – in Chile. In order to implement these programs, which are primarily humanitarian-aid actions, the combined unit, under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Claudio Mendoza Oyarce, has identified tasks of vital importance for sectors of the population lacking basic services and material resources to meet their needs, especially those of children in irregular situations. These activities include the delivery of food, water, clothing, and gifts, recreational activities, medical visits, fumigation, and small-scale construction and repairs at schools and orphanages in the city of Port-au-Prince. All the activities done in this context are vitally important for the beneficiaries. “The aim is to maintain a hygienic environment for the children who live or study in the places where the Company does this work. Pest control, to reduce the risk of illnesses such as malaria and dengue – highly prevalent in Haiti – as well as gastrointestinal illnesses such as cholera and vector-borne acute gastroenteritis, is fundamental, and this is precisely what’s received special attention, with the aim of improving these children’s quality of life,” Captain José Sánchez Paredes, the unit’s health and CIMIC officer, indicated, since with the contribution in the health area, the delivery of potable water, and fumigation, it has been possible to achieve these objectives with the added value of providing moments of recreation for the children.
Chad Holladay raced to his career first Deery Brothers Summer Series feature win when the 30th annual IMCA Late Model tour concluded Saturday at West Liberty Raceway. (Photo by Mike Ruefer)WEST LIBERTY, Iowa (Sept. 24) – Chad Holladay won his first Deery Brothers Summer Series feature while Tyler Bruening became a first-time IMCA Late Model tour champion Saturday night at West Liberty Raceway.Holladay raced from the 15th starting spot to win the 50-lap finale for the 30th annual series, leading the last 28 circuits en route to the $2,500 Ideal Ready Mix Liberty 100 payday.“We had a good car, obviously. I was able to run the cushion where no one else was and found some bite on (turn) four. The cautions helped and we had a little bit of luck. It was a little bit of everything tonight,” he said. “A Deery Series win is something we’ve always wanted and we’ve come close a couple times. We’re hoping to pick up at the same place we left off next year.”Bruening made his charge toward the front from 21st starting and finished sixth. He’d gone into the day just a single point ahead of Jeff Aikey in the race for the series crown but the anticipated last-race drama disappeared when Aikey couldn’t make the call for the main event due to engine issues.Andy Eckrich, Matt Ryan, Joel Callahan and Chris Horn finished second through fifth, respectively.Jeremiah Hurst led early from the pole before Ryan settled in for a 14-lap turn up front. Callahan took over for six circuits. Holladay made the most of the higher line once he got in front and pulled away from the pack.The regular season track champion at West Liberty, Holladay’s previous best Deery Series finish came with a third place run on Sept. 3 at Farley Speedway.Callahan also topped the $2,500 to-win 50-lapper for pay only and $1,000 to-win Iron Man Challenge. He won the $250 Sunoco Race Fuels feature qualifier drawing as well.Top 10 drivers in point standings for the second half of the series will receive checks totaling $9,325 during the IMCA national awards banquet in November. Bruening’s share will be $2,500.The complete Liberty 100 program was held on Saturday after Friday’s scheduled program was postponed due to wet track conditions.Feature results – 1.

By Jay Cook |BELFORD – By all accounts, Dwayne Reevey is the kind of cop any police department would be lucky to have.He’s in the schools creating relationships with the youth, allows the kids in town to call him by his first name and has been known to play pickup basketball after school while still in uniform.That’s exactly why the greater Fair Haven community has rallied to support Reevey, 32, who grew up in town, during his recovery from a tragic July 4 swimming accident that left him with a broken neck.“Deep down, I was scared,” Reevey told The Two River Times from his Belford home this week. “For a second I thought I was going to die.”He and his family were celebrating Independence Day on Long Beach Island; they had a condominium there and were on the beaches all day. It was 5:30 p.m. and Reevey headed to the ocean after a sandy game of frisbee. He might have jumped into the water about 15 times that day, but this time he didn’t realize the tide had receded.Reevey, who stands at 6 feet 4 inches, jumped into a breaking wave in water that only reached his shins.“Immediately my eyes opened and I could see the water and sand,” he recalled. “My ears were ringing like that scene on the beach in ‘Saving Private Ryan.’ That’s when my fingers went numb. I kept telling myself, ‘get up, get up, get up.’ ”After a few moments of lying in the surf, Reevey mustered up the strength to stand and walk out of the ocean. He alerted his wife, Christina, that something wasn’t right. A first aid squad arrived in short order and Reevey was at Southern Ocean Medical Center in Manahawkin in under an hour.Thinking he only suffered a stinger or a muscular injury, Reevey was blindsided when a physician’s assistant informed him of the serious prognosis.He had fractured his C1 vertebrae in four places. He said every doctor told him he should be either paralyzed or dead. But remarkably, he wasn’t.“God gave me another chance,” Reevey said. “I definitely had angels looking after me that day.”Surgery soon followed. He was transferred to Jersey Shore University Medical Center, Neptune, and was admitted for seven days. Doctors installed a halo, a device where four screws are drilled into the first layer of the skull and connected to support beams for stabilization. Reevey was then moved to Riverview Medical Center in Red Bank to undergo five days of rehabilitation.Nearly two weeks after that life-altering leap, Reevey is back in the comfort of his own home with his wife, mother and 1-year-old son, albeit with some changes. His vigorous workout routine has come to a standstill as he can’t lift more than five pounds, meaning he can’t even pick up his son. Sleeping isn’t easy either, but Reevey has begun to find a groove. Soon after returning home July 16, Reevey started taking walks, brewed coffee and cooked his own eggs. He knows he’s lucky to be alive.“Now I just have a new perspective on life and how short it really is,” he said.Efforts to support the Reevey family after the accident quickly blossomed. He’s a Fair Haven native with roots dating back to the 1880s in the borough. A graduate of Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School, he went on to major in criminal justice at Rowan University, where he played soccer and basketball. Reevey joined the Fair Haven Police Department in 2010 as a 26-year-old and quickly became a friendly presence for the police in the local school district.Reevey’s closest friends dating back to his middle school days set up a GoFundMe account to provide financial help to his family. Remarkably, in only six days, 676 people donated $71,781 to help pay for the impending hospital bills.“It was one thing to just ‘like’ the post,” said his wife, Christina, “but for people to actually put themselves out there and do that was amazing.”Seventh-grade students from Knollwood School held a bake sale July 12 to fundraise for Dwayne Reevey, who teaches the Law Enforcement Against Drugs (LEAD) program to students in Fair Haven’s public schools. Photo by Jay CookHis impact on school-aged children is evident. Three young girls set up a lemonade stand fundraiser July 9 at the corner of River Road and Lexington Avenue. Later in the week, eight seventh-grade girls from Knollwood School held a homemade bake sale outside the ACME on River Road to raise money for his recovery.“We had him in fifth grade and we felt really bad because he’s one of our favorite police officers in town,” said 12-year-old Reilly Sullivan. “We just really wanted to do something.”Reevey said he’s been touched by all the personal sentiments and support from his small hometown.“I don’t know what to do to show all of my appreciation and gratitude,” he said. “I just feel like screaming to everybody about how happy I am and how much of an impact their support had on my mentality.”That mentality has kept Reevey focused on an eventual return to work. He’ll wear the halo for two months and, with no setbacks in his rehab, he hopes to return to light duty in mid-September.“He’s like a brother to us,” said Fair Haven police chief Joseph McGovern. “I’m pretty optimistic that he’s going to have a full recovery. It may take some time but he’s making progress.”That sense of normalcy will be welcomed with open arms, Reevey said. He’s eager to get back in the schools, protect the community and also fully recover to be there for his family.“I don’t know what they would do if I didn’t get out of the ocean that day,” Reevey said about his wife, son and mother. “Yeah, it’s scary, but it just means that I have to live my life to the fullest and keep doing what I’m doing.”This article was first published in the July 19-26, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.
170 KENTUCKY DERBY QUALIFYING POINTS UP FOR GRABS AS ‘RUN FOR THE ROSES’ LOOMS MAY 2 ARCADIA, Calif. (April 1, 2015)–Kaleem Shah’s undefeated Dortmund heads a field of six in Saturday’s Grade I, $1 million Santa Anita Derby, to be run at 1 1/8 miles. Trained by Bob Baffert, Dortmund comes off a 1 ¼ length win in the Grade II, 1 1/16 miles San Felipe Stakes on March 7, thus stamping himself as one of America’s elite Kentucky Derby candidates.A chestnut colt by 2008 Kentucky Derby winner Big Brown, Dortmund showed tremendous courage in winning head photos in both the Grade I Los Alamitos Futurity on Dec. 20 and the Grade III Robert B. Lewis Stakes on Feb. 7 and has many racing observers believing that his best is yet to come.Favored in all five starts, Dortmund has been the odds-on choice in his last four races and has been ridden throughout by Martin Garcia. An imposing sight at 17 hands, Dortmund took the San Felipe in gate to wire fashion and appears on the improve for Baffert, who seeks a record seventh win in the West Coast’s premier Kentucky Derby prep.With 170 Kentucky Derby qualifying points at stake (100 to the winner, 40 to second, 20 to third and 10 to the fourth place finisher), here’s a snapshot look at the field for Saturday’s Santa Anita Derby:–DORTMUND Along with stablemate, American Pharoah, Dortmund is considered the number one or two seed in the run-up to this year’s Kentucky Derby. A runaway first-out maiden winner going 6 ½ furlongs at Santa Anita Nov. 2, he made his next start going a one turn mile at Churchill Downs on Nov. 29, where he demolished a 12-horse allowance field by 7 ¾ lengths, covering the distance in 1:35.60.Owned by Kaleem Shah, Inc., Dortmund was purchased out of a 2-year-old in training sale last May for $140,000. A Kentucky-bred colt by Big Brown out of the Tale of the Cat mare Our Josephina, he has been perfect in all five starts and has banked $689,400.–PROSPECT PARK Although he didn’t break his maiden until his fourth start, on Dec. 27 at Santa Anita, this Kentucky-bred colt by Tapit is making up for lost time, as he followed a 5 ¼ length one mile allowance score on Jan. 30 with a huge second, beaten just 1 ¼ lengths, by Dortmund in the Grade II San Felipe Stakes March 7.“They won the battle, but we’ll win the war,” is how jockey Kent Desormeaux described Prospect Park’s San Felipe. Owned and bred by Pam and Martin Wygod and trained by Clifford Sise, Prospect Park earned a career-best 102 Beyer Speed figure in the San Felipe and has left many observers feeling there could be even better things to come in the Santa Anita Derby. Out of the Bertrando mare, Quiet Romance, Prospect Park is 6-2-2-1, with earnings of $166,570.—BOLO–Trained by Carla Gaines, this Kentucky-bred colt by the Dynaformer stallion, Temple City, ran a huge third in the San Felipe, which was his first-ever try on dirt. Beaten just 1 ¾ lengths by Dortmund, Bolo, who had won two consecutive races on grass leading into the San Felipe, appears to have thrust himself into the Derby conversation as a legitimate contender who may continue to improve with added distance.“Every time I’ve ridden him, he’s galloped out like a monster,” said Mike Smith, who regains the mount after opting for Ocho Ocho Ocho in the San Felipe.Out of the Chief Seattle mare Aspen Mountain, Bolo is owned by Golden Pegasus Racing, Inc. and Earle Mack. With a vastly improved 101 Beyer Speed figure in the San Felipe, Bolo, who like so many in the Derby field likes to run close to the pace, will hope to ration his speed at a mile and one eighth. He has two wins and a third from four starts, with earnings of $129,700.–ONE LUCKY DANE The “Other Baffert” in the Derby field, this bay colt by 2010 Preakness Stakes winner Lookin At Lucky overcame a 4 ½ month layoff to win a one mile allowance by 9 ¾ lengths on March 19, a race that established him as a Derby contender. A 9 ½ length one mile maiden winner at Santa Anita three starts back on Oct. 4, One Lucky Dane was well beaten when splitting the field two starts back in the Grade I Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Nov. 1.Owned by Michael Lund Petersen, One Lucky Dane won in gate to wire fashion on March 19 and will no doubt show plenty of speed on Saturday under regular rider Rafael Bejarano. Out of the Boston Harbor mare Echo Harbor, One Lucky Dane sold for $490,000 as a Keeneland September yearling in 2013. He is 5-2-1-1 with earnings of $92,400.–CROSS THE LINE A troubled second, beaten 2 ½ lengths in the Grade III, 1 1/8 miles El Camino Real Derby on Feb. 14 at Golden Gate Fields, this colt by Line of David will try natural dirt for the first time in his initial foray at a track other than Golden Gate. Trained by Jerry Hollendorfer, Cross the Line rallied from off the pace to win the one mile California Derby Jan. 17 and will likely try to employ similar tactics on Saturday.The only horse in the field to have run a mile and one eighth, Cross the Line, who is owned by Hollendorfer, George Todaro, Live Your Dream Racing Stable, LLC and partners, will again get the services of Bay Area-based Juan Hernandez, who has ridden him in his three previous races–two of them wins. Out of the Mr. Greeley mare Beer Baroness, Cross the Line is 5-2-2-1, with earnings of $123,920.–BAD READ SANCHEZ A 10 length first-out maiden winner going five furlongs at Santa Anita on June 20, “Sanchez” has been idle since running third in the Grade II, 6 ½ furlong Best Pal Stakes at Del Mar and will try two turns for the first time. A longshot who could make the early lead, this Kentucky-bred colt by Warrior’s Reward is trained by Doug O’Neill, who won the Santa Anita Derby in 2012 with I’ll Have Another and in 2013 with Goldencents.Owned by J. Paul Reddam’s Reddam Racing, LLC, Bad Read Sanchez will be ridden by Mario Gutierrez, who rode Reddam’s I’ll Have Another to victories in the 2012 Santa Anita Derby, Kentucky Derby and Preakness. Out of the Pulpit mare Past Twilight, Bad Read Sanchez is 3-1-1-1 with earnings of $77,600.With all horses assigned 122 pounds, here is the field for Saturday’s Grade I Santa Anita Derby, to be run as the eighth race on an 11-race card, with jockeys and morning line in post position order: Dortmund, Martin Garcia, 3-5; One Lucky Dane, Rafael Bejarano, 5-1; Cross the Line, Juan Hernandez, 15-1; Bolo, Mike Smith, 4-1; Prospect Park, Kent Desormeaux, 7-2, and Bad Read Sanchez, Mario Gutierrez, 30-1. Special early first post time on Saturday is at 12 noon. Admission gates open at 10 a.m. In addition to the Santa Anita Derby, five other stakes will be offered: The Grade I, $400,000 Santa Anita Oaks, the Grade III, $150,000 Providencia Stakes, the $200,000 Echo Eddie Stakes, the $200,000 Evening Jewel Stakes and the $75,000 Thunder Road Stakes. –30–
In a historic prelude to the Beijing Olympics, China will be represented in its first Rose Parade float on New Year’s Day. “What a fabulous way to launch the Beijing Olympics year,” said Diane Dixon, senior vice president of Avery Dennison, a Pasadena-based company that is co-sponsoring the Olympics-theme float. “It’s historic. The People’s Republic of China has never had a float in the Tournament of Roses parade,” Dixon said. A formal announcement regarding the float was scheduled for Monday at tournament headquarters in Pasadena, whose sister city is the Xicheng district of Beijing. A delegation of the Beijing Olympic Organizing Committee was expected to attend. Dixon said the Chinese government was not paying for the float, which will roll through Pasadena on Jan. 1, 2008. The other co-sponsor is the Roundtable of Southern California Chinese-American Organizations. The Beijing Olympic Organizing Committee, however, is lending its trademarks and the Olympic symbol to the float, Dixon said. The theme of the 2008 Rose Parade is fittingly “Passport to the World’s Celebrations,” and tournament officials had hoped for China to be represented. Floats are entered in the parade on behalf of a city, corporation or organization. The China float will be designed by Festival Artists Worldwide. “It’s a great way to bring attention to the Olympics, to showcase and highlight the cooperative relationship between the United States and China,” Dixon said. “We think that it will captivate and capture a lot of interest.” Approximately 40 million Americans watch the Rose Parade on TV, as well as millions of international viewers in 150 territories around the world, according to the Tournament of Roses. Avery Dennison, which makes products range from mailing labels to highway safety signs, has been expanding operations in China for the past 15 years and now has about 6,000 of its 23,000 employees based there.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Trade unions Unite and Mandate claim that 10% of people in Ireland are suffering food poverty – and Donegal is the worst-hit.The unions are demanding immediate Government aid for poverty relief organisations to help.In a county-by-county report produced today, they say that Donegal is the worst-hit with one-in-nine people affected in the county with the lowest income levels. The two unions want the Government to provide immediate aid to organisations providing food assistance to enable them to cope with Christmas demand.Unite Regional Secretary Jimmy Kelly said: “Food poverty in Ireland today is part of a policy-made disaster – austerity, and the collapse in incomes it has brought in its wake.“Organisations providing food assistance are stretched to their limits, which is why we are calling on the Government to immediately make €10 million available to such organisations,” he said.DONEGAL IS WORST-HIT BY FOOD POVERTY SAY UNIONS was last modified: December 15th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)

Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, right, tries to drive past Boston Celtics forward Jaylen Brown, left, during the first quarter of an NBA basketball game, Wednesday, Oct. 18, 2017, in Boston. (AP Photo/Charles Krupa)BOSTON — Giannis Antetokounmpo dribbled into the paint, spun to his left and found his path to the basket blocked by Celtics rookie Jayson Tatum.Instead, the Greek Freak fed the ball to Matthew Dellavedova beyond the arc for the 3-pointer that helped seal Milwaukee’s 108-100 victory over the Boston Celtics in the Bucks’ season opener on Wednesday night.ADVERTISEMENT “I passed the ball to Delly,” said Antetokounmpo, who had 16 of his 37 points in the fourth quarter— and the biggest assist of the game, as well. “And that’s what Delly does.”One night after a gruesome broken ankle just six minutes into the season cost Boston top free agent Gordon Hayward — perhaps for the entire year — the Celtics fell to 0-2 by giving up an 11-1 run that left Milwaukee with a 97-90 lead and under three minutes to play.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutAntetokounmpo added 13 rebounds, Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon scored 19 points and Khris Middleton had 15 points and nine rebounds for the Bucks. Dellavedova scored 15 points, including the 3-pointer with 45 seconds left after the Celtics cut the lead to two points.“I thought Giannis made a great play at the end, trusting his teammate,” Bucks coach Jason Kidd said. “Just to trust his teammate down at the end to make a play … he got off the ball and Delly made a big shot.” Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH Kyrie Irving scored 17 points on 7-for-25 shooting in his Boston debut, and Jaylen Brown had 18 in a subdued home opener for the Celtics, who underwent a near-complete overhaul over the summer even after earning the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference last season.Although Irving and No. 3 draft pick Jayson Tatum appeared in a Celtics home uniform for the first time, Hayward was left to wish them well in a pregame video in his hospital gown from his hospital bed. After cheering Hayward during his scoreboard appearance, the Celtics fans broke into a chant of his name during the first half.“Like he told us before the game, we got that message — before the whole arena got the message — he’s fine,” Celtics guard Terry Rozier said. “Personally, it was tough seeing, but I think we’ll be fine. We’ve just got to adjust.”But the team was unable to make up for the absence of the player who was expected to be their key offseason acquisition when he signed a four-year, $128 million contract to rejoin Brad Stevens, his college coach, in Boston.The Celtics trailed by seven heading into the third quarter before scoring 14 of the next 16 points, taking a 69-64 lead on Irving’s 3-pointer from the top of the key. But the Bucks regained the lead with six minutes to play, holding Boston without a basket for about five minutes.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ View comments LATEST STORIES Fire hits houses in Mandaluyong City BSP sees higher prices in November, but expects stronger peso, low rice costs to put up fight Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Man Utd boss Solskjaer assures matchwinner Rashford: Zico, Maradona also missedby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was happy for matchwinner Marcus Rashford after victory over Leicester City.The England international was under pressure taking the early spotkick.But having missed his previous penalty against Crystal Palace, Rashford converted for the only goal of the game. It was a relief for Rashford and his teammates, with United having missed two of their previous four penalties won this season.However, despite the outside pressure, Solskjaer insists there was never any extra demands coming from him for United’s No10.After the victory, Solskjaer told VG: “Every striker has been penalised. I’ve seen Diego Maradona and Lionel Messi miss. Michel Platini and Zico, my favourite player of all time, missed in the same match.”You just have to have enough confidence to take it again next time. What is the worst that can happen?”Victory over Leicester has United now sitting in fourth place on eight points after five games. It marked United’s first win since the opening day thumping of Chelsea.Solskjaer was also asked by reporters from the Norwegian outlet about Rashford’s performance. The United manager admitted he was delighted with the player’s commitment against a very competitive Leicester City.On Rashford’s form, Solskjaer continued: “He offers something to the team. He knows we didn’t give him enough opportunities to run through their back line. He’s getting more mature. He knows it’s not just about goals.”Today it was all about teaming up, we had to defend, and it was good to see that we were able to defend ourselves from deep without conceding any chances.”- updated September 16 About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
Ohio State received its 2014 National Championship rings earlier today, and the Buckeyes began showing them off online. The Twitter account for ESPN’s SportsCenter used OSU wide receivers coach Zach Smith’s ring picture in a tweet, and cited the assistant in the process. A Michigan fan on Twitter responded to the tweet by acknowledging that this is the Buckeyes’ eighth claimed national championship, while the Wolverines claim 11 over their program’s history. @LeadFoot_Lads82 @SportsCenter @CoachZachSmith @DMike94 WOAH DUDE ONLY 3 MORE TO MATCH MICHIGAN.— Us Against The World (@MichiganTorei) March 27, 2015Smith was tagged in the Michigan fan’s response tweet, and decided to come up with a comeback of his own, rather than stay silent. What Smith did was take a screenshot of Wikipedia’s listing of national champions during the poll era (1936-present). During that time frame, Ohio State has four more titles than Michigan, because the Maize and Blue claim a handful of championships from the turn of the 20th century.
