What a difference a week and a few extra players makes.The L.V. Rogers Bombers looked like a completely different team en route to a second place finish at the Eagles High School Boy’s Basketball Tournament Saturday in Golden.The Bombers suffered a heartbreaking 61-60 loss to Valleyview of Kamloops in the final of the eight-team tourney.However, witnessing a team compete after being completely out-classed the week before gave everyone on the team, including head coach Jeremy Phelan, reason for optimism heading down the stretch of the high school season.“This was a big boost of confidence for our guys making it to a final,” Phelan said.“Last weekend down to eight players along with missing a lot of our stronger players,” Phelan added.“(In Golden) we had a had deeper bench and Josh Matosevic and Isaiah Kingdon on the trip which helped us with our ball handling defence and scoring.”In the final, it appeared the Bombers were ready to sip from the championship cup when an excitable player received a costly technical foul in the final minute of the game. LVR had a 10-point lead before the Kamloops squad began to peck away at the margin.Trailing 60-59, Valleyview sank two free throws to grab the lead for good.“Valleyview didn’t pressure the ball so we were able to execute our zone offence,” Phelan explained.“We overloaded their 1-3-1 zone defence and picked them apart with our guys converting high percentage shots.”Bjorn Morris led the Bombers in scoring with 20 points while Ethan Perkins had 16 Isaiah Kingdon 11.The Bombers opened the tournament with a 64-51 win over Selkirk Storm of Kimberley.The Storm jumped on the Bombers early, building up a first quarter lead.But LVR found their running legs to overpower the Storm over the rest of the game.Morris was again the top scorer for LVR with 19 points while Hanno Southham and Sida Wang each had eight.LVR then outlasted Mount Baker Wild of Cranbrook 52-36 to advance to the final.Perkins was high man for LVR with 18 points while Morris had 11 and Kingdon eight.The Bombers, 6-5 on the season, are back on the road this weekend, this time back in the Okanagan at the Kalamalka Lakers Senior Boy’s Tournament.

The board believe Poch, 47, engineered his own sacking. Levy hopes Poch’s exit will persuade contract rebels to stay.Former Manchester United boss Mourinho, 56, wants the job and has alerted his coaching staff to be ready for Saturday’s lunchtime clash clash at capital rivals West Ham.However, former Juventus boss Allegri, 52, is also very keen and has already ordered his backroom staff to learn English.Poch’s sacking stunned football, with Tottenham legend Gary Lineker tweeting: “He helped the club to punch massively above their weight for years.“Good luck with finding a better replacement….ain’t gonna happen.”His departure came just hours after the club’s England midfielder Harry Winks had paid a glowing tribute to Pochettino.Spurs are set to fork out the £12.5million left on his contract after signing a five-year £8.5m deal a year only last summer.Poch’s coaching staff of Jesus Perez, Miguel D’Agostino and Toni Jimenez, were also shown the door.In the club’s statement Levy, said: “We were extremely reluctant to make this change and it is not a decision the Board has taken lightly, nor in haste. Regrettably domestic results at the end of last season and beginning of this season have been extremely disappointing.”Spurs are languishing in 14th spot in the Prem and were dumped out of the Carabao Cup by League Two Colchester.3 Daniel Levy hopes Poch’s exit will persuade contract rebels to stayCredit: News Group Newspapers Ltd3They also suffered a record-breaking 7-2 home Champions League defeat by Bayern Munich.Poch had spent a whopping £353.8m during his time in charge.Spurs academy coach Bradley Allen admitted: “I’m tremendously disappointed.“It’s really sad it’s come to this. You have to realise the job he’s done. Getting us to the Champions League final was an amazing achievement.”Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust issued a damning statement which took a swipe at the board’s decision to sack the Argentine.It read: “We’re shocked and saddened. Poch gave us many of our best moments as supporters, made Tottenham a force to be reckoned with again and forged a strong link with the fans.“Many of us thought he had earned the right to turn it around in the first sustained period of poor form we’ve had during his time at the club.“There are questions that must be asked of the board. Why was this decision taken at the end rather than the beginning of the international break?“We question whether the timing of the decision leaves the club with much choice in who takes over.“And is the manager solely accountable? How much has the board’s line on wages and transfers contributed to player unrest and disaffection?“How much did it contribute to the situation we now find ourselves in? And will it change to help support a new manager?”

…as Judiciary urged to “bell the cat”, be firm with GovtAfter hearing arguments on Monday that the precedent exists for the court to set a timeframe for elections, acting Chief Justice Roxane George has set August 14 as the date for ruling on the legal challenge against House-to-House Registration and related cases.Chief Justice Roxane GeorgeGECOM Chair Claudettte SinghDuring the hearing, former Attorney General Anil Nandlall cited the 2000 Esther Perreira election petition case. Nandlall argued strongly that this case sets a precedent for the court to set an election timeframe.At the time, Justice Claudette Singh had ordered that elections must be held by March 31, 2001. Singh, who is now Chairperson of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM), had also set out limitations on the Government’s conduct, including limitations on what legislation could be tabled.Making reference to this, Nandlall urged the court to intervene and noted that the Judiciary, as custodian of the Constitution, has a duty to act. At this point, Justice George acknowledged that the Judiciary does have an inherent power to act.The arguments that House-to-House Registration is mandatory did not find favour with the Chief Justice. This argument emanated from Attorney General Basil Williams. However, Nandlall pointed out and Justice George agreed, that the law says the Guyana Elections Commission may, and not shall, carry out the exercise. Confronted with his error, Williams professed that he “loves to stand in front of [Justice George] and learn.”The Chief Justice set August 14 as the date for her rulings on the challenge to House-to-House Registration, a case brought by Attorney-at-Law Christopher Ram, as well as Attorney General Basil Williams’ petition to strike out Ram’s case.Outside the court, Nandlall expressed hope that the court would be more firm with the Government this time around than on previous occasions, such as when Justice George heard the original case in January. He maintained that while President David Granger has to set an election date, all the Opposition wanted was for the Chief Justice to set a timeframe within which the President must set a date for elections.“The No-Confidence Motion was passed on December 21, 2018. The Constitution is clear. The Government has refused to comply with the Constitution. They came to the court. The court ruled that the motion was valid and ordered that sections of the Constitution be complied with. They did not comply with it. We asked the court then to fix dates for elections. The court refused. We then went to the court of appeal and the court reversed that.”“We then went to the CCJ. The CCJ said the Constitution must be obeyed and elections be fixed within the timeframe. But the Executive is simply disobeying. That is what I’m telling the Judge. For how long will we not bell the cat? For how long will we engage in these diplomatic exchanges and we’re not speaking about the elephant in the room. And I urge the court not to act with restraint. We are here because the court acted with restraint in January,” Nandlall added.Meanwhile, AG Williams reiterated outside the court that these matters were dealt with before and that orders not granted by the Caribbean Court of Justice cannot be granted by the High Court.House-to-HouseGECOM is currently undertaking House-to-House Registration, which was last conducted in 2008 and will see enumerators going in teams of two to three, from door to door in various communities across Guyana. The enumerators will present forms to registrants to fill up, as well as take fingerprints and pictures.It is understood that these enumerators work from 15:30h to 18:30h during the week and from 9:00h to 16:00h on weekends and holidays. The exercise is intended to produce a new National Register of Registrants Database and Official List of Electors.This means that everyone, regardless of whether they were registered before or not, must register anew at their place of residence between July 20 and October of this year. However, a No-Confidence Motion was passed against the Government since December 21, 2018, necessitating elections in three months.In addition, the requirement for proof of residency has produced alarm for overseas-based Guyanese to the point where a court case was filed earlier this year by an overseas-based Guyanese against House-to-House Registration on the basis that it would disenfranchise her. That case was later withdrawn out of the belief that GECOM would adhere to the recent Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) rulings which reiterated the need for elections in three months.It is because of this that Ram brought his case against GECOM. Ram is seeking an order compelling the Commission to stop their House-to-House exercise. Previously, Justice George had denied Ram’s application for an interim conservatory order to block GECOM from continuing its House-to-House exercise that began on July 20.Subsequently, GECOM Chief Elections Officer Keith Lowenfield through Trinidadian lawyer Stanley Marcus had sought the Chief Justice’s recusal on the grounds of a statement she caused her office to send out which they contended was biased.

PASADENA – A lawyer for a gay couple suing for the right to wed told a federal appeals court Tuesday that it’s unconstitutional to prevent same-sex marriage, but one judge appeared unmoved and two others said the case could die on procedural grounds. “Everything that is wrong is not discrimination,” said Judge Jerome Farris, part of a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The case was brought by two gay men who sued after being denied a marriage license in Orange County. They claim California’s ban on same-sex marriage and federal laws against it are unconstitutional because gays and lesbians are treated differently than heterosexuals. U.S. District Judge Gary Taylor last year ruled against the pair – Arthur Smelt and Christopher Hammer, both 46, of Mission Viejo. They appealed. Taylor ruled that the law “has a disproportionate effect on homosexual individuals,” but said the government’s desire to promote procreation is a valid reason for infringing on the rights of gays. Farris agreed with that assertion. “I think marriage is a bundle of sticks and sticks include procreation,” Farris said. Richard Gilbert, the gay couple’s attorney, said procreation is not the important element of marriage and Judge Sidney Thomas appeared to agree. “I don’t understand, really, the procreation argument,” Thomas said. After the hearing, Hammer said he would prevail all the way to the Supreme Court “if they acknowledge that we are human.” Still, the heavyweights of the same-sex marriage movement aren’t supporting the case but are backing instead campaigns in the state courts of California, Iowa, Washington, New Jersey, New York and elsewhere.
