We are covering communities that include Tivoli Gardens, Denham Town, Fletcher’s Land and Hannah Town,” she noted, while pointing out that approximately 400 children are expected to participate.“From the Ministry’s perspective, a total of 400 children between primary level and secondary level schools [will benefit] and this does not include the number that would be treated by the Early Childhood Commission (ECC), which will be looking at children zero to eight, while the Ministry will be looking at children aged nine to 18,” Mrs. McFarlane informed.A special instrument has already been developed to determine the extent to which the children were affected.“In terms of eligibility, an instrument was developed that helped us determine the extent to which the children were affected, because different children, based on their circumstances and other characteristics, are likely to respond in different ways,” she said.According to the Assistant Chief Education Officer, the camp will be structured on two different levels, depending on the results of the assessment.“We will have two level camps coming out of the findings of our assessment. For the children who are healing well on their own, we are going to be having play days, which will run for three weeks, Mondays to Fridays, then for the children who need special attention, we will have them in pullout camps, where they will be put in a programme which will have more psycho-social assistance from professionals,” she further explained.“The camp will focus on: getting the children to express themselves freely, rehabilitative services, life skills and citizenship education activities and rebuilding patriotism,” the Assistant Chief Education Officer added.In addition, at least 200 Counsellors have been trained with the assistance of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), to further assist the young persons, and a number of psychologists have also volunteered their services to the camp.The Ministry’s summer camp forms part of the Critical Incident Management Alliance, which was recently established by the Guidance and Counselling Unit to respond to the West Kingston incident. Some of the agencies involved include the Child Development Agency (CDA), the Child Guidance Clinic of the Ministry of Health, Sistren Theatre Collective, Early Childhood Commission, Rise Life Management Services and UNICEF.

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. – Leaning on his club, Matt Parziale crossed one leg over the other and placed the free hand on his hip. His caddie mirrored his position and used Parziale’s bag as his source of support. The two looked almost identical, just one older than the other. Being related will do that. Parziale’s dad, Vic Parziale, has been with his son throughout his entire U.S. Open journey, starting Monday and ending Father’s Day. Matt finished 5 over par Sunday to tie for low amateur at 16 over for the tournament. ”We do stand alike out there,” Vic said. ”It’s funny.” Said Matt: ”I don’t like it, but that’s how life goes.” He’s kidding. The idea of turning into his dad doesn’t scare him. ”He’s the best guy I know,” Matt said. ”If I can be half that good, I’ll be doing all right.” U.S. Open: Scores | Live blog | Full coverage It’s a classic like father, like son relationship. Matt, 31, is a full-time firefighter back home in Brockton, Massachusetts. Vic retired from the same station last year after 32 years. The two, obviously, also share a love for golf. ”He stinks now,” Matt said. ”I’d have to play pretty bad to let him win. He used to be much better than he is now.” Matt says he was 14 the first time he beat his dad. Vic says his son was 15. Either way, once Matt beat Vic’s 73 by a stroke as a teenager, it was game over. Vic never beat his son again. ”Golf skipped a generation for sure,” Vic said. ”Because I don’t play like him.” As the first mid-amateur to make a cut at the U.S. Open in 15 years, Matt’s second round was his best, carding a 73 with a birdie on No. 18 that guaranteed him a spot in the final rounds. On the last day, Matt shot a 75 to end up at 296, the same mark fellow amateur Luis Gagne scored. Will Grimmer was the only other amateur to make the cut, and he finished 23 over at 303. The tournament started with 20 amateurs. This was Matt’s first U.S. Open. He played at the Masters earlier this year, but did not advance after two rounds. Vic was his caddie there, too. ”Mostly, I just carry the bag and keep my mouth shut,” Vic said. His specialty is wind: Matt does go to his dad for advice there. It helped this week. ”I don’t get paid,” Vic said. ”I don’t want to be, of course. I just love doing it.” The two have worked alongside each other for as long as either can remember. After college at Southeastern University in Lakeland, Florida, Matt turned pro but called it quits after a couple years when it didn’t pay off financially. That’s when he became a firefighter. But Matt never fully gave up golf, regaining his amateur status and going on to win the U.S. Mid-Amateur championship back in October. Vic caddied, of course. ”It’s not something that happened over night,” Vic said. ”He just wasn’t lucky getting here. He really worked hard on his game.” Being a firefighter actually allows him to practice and compete often. Matt works two 24-hour shifts a week. He’s not returning straight to his full-time job immediately, though. His upcoming golf schedule is packed. Starting Wednesday, Matt will compete in the Northeast Amateur tournament. Then he’ll have the U.S. Amateur – after he gets married on Aug. 3 – and more. Wherever and whatever, Vic will be standing nearby. ”He’s always given me the opportunity to succeed,” Matt said. ”None of this is possible without his support and his help.”
In this week’s edition, we celebrate the game’s largest and loudest cocktail party; consider the new World Golf Hall of Fame standards; and question the rule – as well as the rule makers – following an untimely, and ultimately unfair, penalty last week in Dubai. Made Cut The Greatest Show on Grass. The mayhem that defines this week’s Waste Management Phoenix Open is not for everyone and a weekly dose of the madness is probably not in the cards, but it’s certainly entertaining. Few, if any, events could replicate TPC Scottsdale’s 16th hole and the atmosphere officials have created, but the scene does stand as an example of how officials can turn a golf tournament into an event. Although at different scales and for vastly different reasons, other events, most notably the Ryder Cup and last year’s PGA Championship, have produced similar scenes that should stand as a benchmark for other tournaments. Maybe the bedlam of the 16th hole isn’t a perfect fit for other events, but in a business that’s all about competition, both on and off the course, it’s a standard that should be the goal for every event. Made Cut-Did Not Finish (MDF) Your browser does not support iframes. Keeping pace. Byrson DeChambeau’s sluggish pace of play last week on his way to victory at the Dubai Desert Classic ignited an old debate on pace of play at the game’s highest level. “Guys are already so slow it’s kind of embarrassing. I just don’t get why you enforce some things and don’t enforce others,” Brooks Koepka told Golf Monthly. While the mad scientist’s endless calculations before hitting each shot can be, well, maddening, this isn’t a Bryson problem. This is a policy problem. Under the European Tour’s pace-of-play policy DeChambeau didn’t violate any rules. The PGA Tour’s pace-of-play policy is riddled with similar loopholes that make any real progress on this front unattainable. DeChambeau, and many others, might be the face of slow play in professional golf, but don’t blame the player, blame the policy. Hall Worthy. The 2019 World Golf Hall of Fame class will include Retief Goosen, Billy Payne, Jan Stephenson, Dennis Walters and the late Peggy Kirk Bell. Debating who is worthy of induction is always good fun, but this year’s class is more compelling because of the standard it sets. Goosen won seven times on the PGA Tour and collected two majors (the 2001 and ’04 U.S. Opens). By comparison Al Geiberger won 11 times on Tour, lapped the field at the 1966 PGA Championship and also won the ’75 Players Championship. He was also the first player to shoot 59 in a Tour event and yet he is not in the World Golf Hall of Fame. It’s not worth debating whether Goosen should be in the Hall because he soon will be. What is worth revisiting is the standard the South African’s induction has created. Tweet of the week: Although the World Golf Hall of Fame doesn’t seem to have any interest in including caddies in the mix it’s always a great argument. There are journalists, advocates and soon a former chairman of Augusta National in the Hall. Why not a caddie? Missed Cut Your browser does not support iframes. A line in the sand. The European Tour’s maiden voyage to Saudi Arabia has tripped a political wire that golf and golfers normally avoid. The death of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi in October and a CIA assessment that claims that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the journalist’s killing has turned this week’s Saudi International into much more than just another tournament. At issue is whether golf, in this case the European Tour, and the game’s best players, a list that includes the world’s top three (Justin Rose, Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson), should align themselves with a regime that finds itself under growing pressure from the international community. “I’m not a politician, I’m a pro golfer,” Rose said on Sunday before departing for Saudi Arabia. “There’s other reasons to go play it. It’s a good field, there’s going to be a lot of world ranking points to play for, by all accounts it’s a good golf course and it will be an experience to experience Saudi Arabia.” Rose’s point is valid and the European Tour is in the business of hosting events, not making political statements, but on this front golf seems to have come up short. Faced with a similar decision to play a lucrative tennis exhibition in December in Saudi Arabia, Roger Federer turned down the invite and the event was eventually cancelled. For tennis, the easiest thing to do was nothing. Penalty box. Golf’s efforts to streamline and simplify its rules took an unexpected and unfortunate detour last week when European Tour officials penalized Haotong Li two strokes during the final round of the Dubai Desert Classic. The penalty, which dropped him from third into a tie for 12th place and costs him $98,000, occurred when Li was lining up a birdie putt on the 72nd green and his caddie appeared to help with his read before stepping out of the line as Li built his stance. “I have spoken personally to R&A chief executive Martin Slumbers to voice my opposition to the fact there is no discretion available to our referees in relation to this ruling, and I will be making additional representation to the R&A in the near future to discuss the matter further,” European Tour CEO Pelley said. While the ruling was grossly outrageous and patently unfair, for Pelley to chide the R&A is misguided. The European Tour, as well as the PGA Tour, had representatives at the rulemaking table throughout this entire process. If Pelley felt so aggrieved by the language of the new rule he should have gone to the mat before it became the new law of the land.
WASHINGTON – Legislators questioned federal officials Friday about their plans to tighten the country’s pipeline safety rules following numerous high-profile spills and explosions during the past year, asking whether the lead agency overseeing energy pipelines had been overly cozy with the industry.The agency’s highest concern is public safety, and reform proposals pending before Congress will give the government the authority it needs to prevent accidents, Cynthia Quarterman, administrator of the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, told a congressional committee.“Having spent time with the employees within the agency, I know they may have concerns about upper-level leadership but in terms of their commitment to the mission, it is the highest thing on their mind,” Quarterman testified at the hearing. “To a person, their concern is the safety of the public.”It will likely be months before investigators determine what caused an oil pipeline to rupture near Billings, Mont., on July 1, spilling about 1,000 barrels of crude into the scenic Yellowstone River. The spill fouled dozens of miles of shoreline and backwaters.Committee members also quizzed Quarterman and other panelists about a Pacific Gas & Electric Co. natural gas pipeline explosion last year in San Bruno, Calif., that killed eight people, injured many more and left 38 homes in smoking ruins.Also mentioned was the rupture of an Enbridge Inc. pipeline in July of last year in southwest Michigan, which spilled more than 800,000 gallons of oil into the Kalamazoo River.“The industry has been driving policy,” said U.S. Rep. Jackie Speier, a California Democrat whose district includes San Bruno. “We’ve got to make it safe for the consumers, for the ratepayers.”Michigan Republican Rep. Fred Upton, who chairs the Committee on Energy and Commerce, compiled a large list of witnesses including several members of the oil and gas industry, but testimony from ExxonMobil Pipeline Co. was postponed for a second hearing next Thursday.Quarterman said the Montana accident has focused her agency’s attention on preventing pipeline failures.She previously said it will likely be August or September before water levels in the river are low enough to exhume the section of damaged pipe responsible for the spill.It could take two months after that before investigators identify a cause, and her agency won’t know for certain how large the leak was until it examines records at the company’s control room in Houston, she said at another congressional hearing Thursday.

But, not for the first time has this Government forgotten about Donegal when it comes to allocating state funding . Failing to allocate one single cent in funding to Donegal is unprecedented and smacks of an anti Donegal approach in allocating funding by Minister Ross , it is self evident further funding is urgently required for our roads stated Pat the Cope.It is time this Government treated Donegal as an equal amongst the other counties rather than the piecemeal approach they have adopted towards us as a county. I am calling on Minister to reconsider his earlier blunder and make a specific allocation for Donegal without further delay – we in Donegal require nothing more or less than our fair share of funding but that is something this Government has failed to do concluded Pat the Cope Community Enhancement Programme open for applications Facebook Google+ Twitter Pinterest News, Sport and Obituaries on Monday May 24th RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR WhatsApp Google+ Arranmore progress and potential flagged as population grows Loganair’s new Derry – Liverpool air service takes off from CODA Nine til Noon Show – Listen back to Monday’s Programme WhatsApp
