9 Sep 2019 Groves claims first home title with English Disability Open success Tags: Disability Open, George Groves World No. 1 George Groves claimed his first title on home soil when he beat a strong international field in blustery but dry conditions in the 2019 English Disability Open staged over the Gainsborough course at Stoke by Nayland.Groves, from Horne Park Golf Club in Surrey, carded rounds of 77 and 74 to claim a five-shot victory over veteran competitor Duncan Hamilton-Martin (St George’s Hill) on seven-over par 151 with Ami Bullock (Woking) taking third place a further four shots behind.The victory made up for the disappointment of being pipped to the title 12 months ago and it should also earn him a place in the field for the disability event being run in tandem with the European Tour’s season-ending DP World Tour Championship in Dubai on this November.“It was great to get my first English title under the belt,” said the new champion. “There’s a lot of competition out there for my world No. 1 slot and hopefully this is enough to secure my place to Dubai.“I really loved the course and the competitors here at Stoke by Nayland and am really happy with the result.”The English Disability Open, which was part of the England Golf championships calendar for the first time, was open to players who are eligible for the World Rankings for Golfers with a disability (WR4GD). It attracted 42 male and female competitors from across Britain, France and The Netherlands, including new players Ellie Perks (Hagley Golf Club) and George Blackshaw (Delamere Forest).During the competition there were other winners for the Net Category and Stableford Category:Net Category (handicaps up to 20.4): Tony Lloyd (The Shropshire Golf Centre) who scored a net total of one under par 143 for his two rounds.Stableford Category (handicaps above 20.5): Kevin Cook (LLanwern Golf Club) who scored 34 points and 29 points to win the title by two points with a total of 63 points.The presentations were made by John Williams, Past President of England Golf, and Susanna Rendall, Director of Stoke by Nayland Hotel, Golf and Spa.Jamie Blair, Inclusion and Wellbeing Manager for England Golf, commented: “This event truly shows that golf and the handicap system focuses on your ability as a golfer and not your disability.“Stoke by Nayland have been fantastic hosts and I would like to say thank you to the management, staff, members and volunteers who have embraced this event, creating a welcoming environment for players new and experienced and making it a huge success.“I would also like to say thank you to our referees and to the R&A for their support. Without them, we would not be able to run a championship that showcases the game at the highest level of competition for golfers with a disability in England.”View the 2019 results here
LONG BRANCH – Monmouth Medical Center has received a $1 million donation from the Tigger House Foundation to support the medical center’s response to the opioid overdose crisis, according to the medical center.The gift will fund a private consultation room in Monmouth’s Emergency Department. The newly-designed area will give patients and families dealing with substance abuse a place to meet with physicians, recovery specialists, patient navigators and counselors.Monmouth Medical Center is part of a state-grant-funded Opioid Overdose Recovery Program, which links individuals reversed from an opioid overdose with recovery support services and treatment after being seen in Monmouth Medical Center’s Emergency Department.Monmouth Medical Center will also work to honor the memory of “Tigger” Stavola through its efforts to reduce the stigma that surrounds the disease of addiction.“Our son, Rick Jr., who was known to friends and family as Tigger, was larger than life – he had a big heart and a special smile that would light up a room,” said Rick Stavola, who started the Tigger House Foundation with his wife, Lisa, in 2013 in memory of their son following his death from an accidental overdose. “If we can help prevent other families from going through what we did, we will have been successful and honored his memory. I believe this partnership with Monmouth Medical Center will help save more lives.”Bill Arnold, president and chief executive officer of Monmouth Medical Center, said “The statistics surrounding opioid use and overdose in Monmouth County are staggering. The generosity of the Tigger House Foundation will greatly assist Monmouth Medical Center in our efforts to combat this deadly epidemic.”The Tigger House Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to reducing the death rate of overdoses due to heroine and opiate addiction. The foundation also works to change public attitudes towards individuals who struggle with addiction by addressing the illicit heroine and opiate epidemic.Tigger House partners with government, law enforcement, legal and medical professionals to provide opportunities for rehabilitation and to halt the spread of illicit drugs through local dealers and prescription drug abuse. It maintains a 12-bed sober living house in Middletown. Managed by Oxford House, Tigger House is helping to establish sober-living housing throughout Monmouth and Ocean counties.“This heartfelt gift from the Tigger House Foundation ensures that patients and families struggling with addiction have access to the support they need,” said Tara Kelly, vice president of development, Monmouth Medical Center Foundation. “The work Tigger House and the Stavolas are doing in memory of their son is truly remarkable and will certainly make a difference in the lives of other families.”Last month, Tigger House announced a gift of $120,000 to Riverview Medical Center in Red Bank to fund an addictions counselor to be on call in the emergency room.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Glen Arnold, CCA, Ohio State University ExtensionSeveral livestock producers have inquired about applying liquid dairy or swine manure to newly planted wheat fields using a drag hose. The thought process is that the fields are firm (dry), there is very little rain in the nearby forecast, and the moisture in the manure could help with wheat germination and emergence.The manure nutrients could easily replace the commercial fertilizer normally applied in advance of planting wheat. The application of fall-applied livestock manure to newly planted or growing crop can reduce nutrient losses compared to fall-applied manure without a growing crop.Both swine and dairy manure can be used to add moisture to newly planted wheat. It’s important that the wheat seeds were properly covered with soil when planted to keep a barrier between the salt and nitrogen in the manure and the germinating wheat seed. It’s also important that livestock producers know their soil phosphorus levels, and the phosphorus in the manure being applied, so we don’t grow soil phosphorus levels beyond what is acceptable.If the wheat is planted at its typical one-inch depth and swine or dairy manure is surface applied there should be no problem applying 5,000 gallons per acre of swine manure or 8,000 gallons per acre of dairy manure. If the wheat is emerging when manure is being applied, there is the possibility of some burn to the wheat from swine manure, but this has not happened in fields I have looked at in past years. If the wheat is fully emerged, there is little concern for burning.If incorporating manure ahead of planting wheat, try to place the manure deep enough (at least three inches) so the manure does not impact the germination and emergence of the wheat crop. Another option is to incorporate the manure and wait a few days before planting the wheat. If incorporated, the opportunity to carry some of the manure nitrogen through the winter could allow for a reduction in the amount of topdress nitrogen needed for the wheat crop next spring.The application of 5,000 gallons of swine finishing manure could contain 200 pounds of nitrogen, 100 pounds of P2O5 and 150 pounds of K2O. The application of 8,000 gallons of dairy manure could contain 175 pounds of nitrogen, 60 pounds of P2O5 and 150 pounds of K2O. Manure nutrient content can vary tremendously from one manure storage facility to another but stay reasonably consistent from the same facility year after year.As always, print out the weather forecast when surface applying manure. Remember the “not greater than 50% chance of 0.5 inches of rainfall in the next 24 hours” rule in the western Lake Erie watershed. Also be certain to observe the proper setbacks from ditches and streams.
With the South Africa celebrating 150 years of Indian settlement, Cricket South Africa (CSA) hosted the biggest ever official reception for the visiting Indian cricket team in Johannesburg.”The official welcome reception for the Indian team is the biggest ever for any team that had visited South Africa,” Cricket South Africa (CSA) chief executive Gerald Majola said during the reception on Monday night.Apart from the players and board officials of both teams Indian Consul-General Vikram Doraiswami too was present on the occasion.During his welcome speech, CSA president Mtutuzeli Nyoka said that Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s men deserved No. 1 Test team spot.”This is a team that has over the last two years swept all before them. I think that by all accounts they deserve the number one status in Test cricket,” he said.Nyoka singled out Sachin Tendulkar for praise and saluted the champion batsman for his contribution to the game.”I want to say thank you to you (Tendulkar) for the many years of wonderful memories that you have given us. You are a true champion, a true hero. You are one of the most decorated cricketers playing today. I salute you as a sportsman, as a cricketer and as a human being,” the CSA president said.Nyoka also lauded the cricketing links between the two countries.”South Africa is what today because of its relationship with India. CSA is a vibrant, strong organisation not least because of the relationship it has with BCCI, and I hope our mission of friendship and brotherhood continues for a very long time,” he added.advertisementIn keeping with the jovial spirit at the reception, Indian Consul-General Doraiswami said, “We’ve always believed our cricket team is the best and rankings are just a matter of devious Western subversions. It’s good to have it finally recognised officially.”He also recalled how former South Africa paceman Allan Donald had given troubled times to the Indians during the first tour way back in 1992-93.”Thank God you don’t have White Lightning (Donald’s nickname) anymore!” Doraiswami said.- With PTI inputs
MONTEGO BAY – Scores of mourners and well wishers turned out to celebrate the life of former Educator and People’s National Party (PNP) Senator, Reverend Noel Keith Monteith, during a Service of Thanksgiving at the historic Carmel Moravian Church in Westmoreland yesterday (May 18).There were approximately 22 tributes which highlighted the outstanding contributions of the former public servant to the fields of education, politics, the Legislature, sports, the Church and the community.Among those in attendance was Prime Minister, the Most Hon.

Monteith’s widow and family, the Prime Minister stated that all who were associated with him have lost a friend, a legislator, an organizer, an administrator and a quiet political giant.“He had clear ideas about what was right and what was wrong and he never departed from his principles. He was a model of integrity and a beacon of service,” she said.Meanwhile, former Prime Minister, the Most Hon. P.J. Patterson, in his tribute, observed that all who spoke attested to the many facets of human endeavour with which Reverend Monteith was engaged and excelled.Giving a short synopsis of the history of the Monteith family, he said that the Thanksgiving Service was in celebration of a man of the very highest pedigree.Also bringing tributes were Custos of Westmoreland, The Very Reverend Canon Hartley Perrin; Hon. A.J. Nicholson representing the Senate; and Minister of Education, The Hon.

CALGARY – The same factors that have inflated the discount paid for Canadian oilsands heavy crude compared with U.S. oil are also driving a substantial rise in the discount for light Canadian oil, according to a report from accounting firm Deloitte published Tuesday.The difference between New York-traded West Texas Intermediate and Edmonton Light oil prices widened to US$7.32 per barrel in January, an 86 per cent increase over the average of US$3.93 per barrel in the fourth quarter of last year, Deloitte said.“We really only have one major market and that major market has been developing their own resources, requiring ours less and less,” said Deloitte partner Andrew Botterill, referring to the United States.“There’s optionality for them to buy Canadian oil volumes or not and when there’s that optionality, it ends up eroding value for Canada.”The lower relative pricing for Canadian crude is partly caused by pipeline capacity constraints as oil production rises in Canada, he said.A key conduit to the U.S. market, TransCanada Corp.’s Keystone pipeline, remains at lower capacity following a leak in November.Meanwhile, delays continue for all three major proposed oil pipelines to export more oil from Western Canada, including Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain expansion, Enbridge’s Line 3 replacement, and TransCanada’s Keystone XL.There’s also less room for Canadian crude in American refineries, which are running at a 13-year high of more than 90 per cent of capacity, because of strong U.S. crude oil production in 2017, according to the Deloitte report.Canadian price differentials are predicted to start to return to historic norms as the new Sturgeon Refinery northeast of Edmonton ramps up production this year, soaking up some of Alberta’s oilsands crude surplus, and as more refinery room becomes available in the U.S.The report adds that the Alberta government’s recent initiatives to encourage building partial upgrading facilities for oilsands crude, if successful, will also help free up more export pipeline room.About 850,000 barrels per day of Canada’s oil production is conventional light oil — the rest of the 4.5 million bpd total is mainly oilsands bitumen and upgraded bitumen, conventional heavy oil and condensate, a hydrocarbon liquid produced with natural gas.Companies mentioned in this article: (TSX:TRP)
