Change is delayed but won’t be stoppedChange is delayed but won’t be stopped

Emma Jervis/ Press 22FINE Gael and Fianna Fáil can delay change, but they cannot stop it.That was the message from Sinn Féin TD for Limerick Maurice Quinlivan, who was responding to the announcement that Fianna Fáil, Fine Gael and the Green Party have negotiated a draft agreement for government.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Deputy Quinlivan also hit out at Leo Varadkar and Micheál Martin’s parties for excluding Sinn Féin from the government formation process. He believes this was an “attempt to deny change, to protect the status-quo and to continue with the same politics that have so badly failed workers and families”.“They have now reached an agreement on a Programme for Government with the Green Party. A programme that doesn’t mention Shannon Airport or the vital Cork to Limerick motorway. It’s lack of detail on huge issues like the living wage, health and housing are very concerning,” he said.The Limerick politician went onto say that the reality is that a government led by Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael – no matter who they are propped up by – does not represent the change that people voted for and will not deliver for workers and families.“Their record in government together over the past four years shows us exactly what they will do if this Programme for Government is endorsed by the parties involved.“What we need is a break from the past, not a repeat of it.”According to Deputy Quinlivan, that means rebuilding the economy in a fair and sustainable way, delivering affordable housing, delivering universal healthcare, making sure workers can retire at the age of 65, investing in our forgotten regions and delivering the type of real change required to tackle the climate emergency.“This will not be delivered by a Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael led government.“To those who voted for change, I say this – do not give up. The future is still there to be won. Sinn Féin will never give up because we believe that we are within touching distance of a better Ireland. Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil can delay change, but they cannot stop it.”Castleconnell-based Sinn Féin politician, Senator Paul Gavan takes the view that in joining Fine Gael in government, Fianna Fáil are nailing their colours to a very “right-wing” mast.“It’s a humiliating experience for many rank and file party members who are seeing the short term personal ambition of their parliamentary team trump the long term interests of their party and the country,” he claimed.Senator Gavan went on to quote Fianna Fáil Cork councillor Deirdre Kelly, who has described the new programme for government as “a continuation of the status quo on housing and rural life”.“People did not vote for more of the same failed policies, but that is what they are due to get, with much of the programme for government merely a restatement of existing Government commitments.”Senator Gavan also had criticism for the Green Party.”Green Party leadership are asking their members to sign up to a document in which the word ‘review’ is mentioned 127 times, ‘examine’ 68 times, ‘consider’ 44 times and ‘assess’ 24 times. It’s a vague and aspirational document, that suggests the proposed government will spend years reviewing and examining rather than delivering. It points to a certain naïveté on the part of the Greens, something they may well live to regret,” he predicts.

‘Why African Players Must Emulate Toriola’‘Why African Players Must Emulate Toriola’

first_imgDuro IkhazuagbeAfrican table tennis players have been urged to take a cue from Segun Toriola’s discerning qualities if they are to be anywhere near the feat the Nigerian star has attained in the game.Toriola who joined the elite Hall of Fame of athletes who have attended seven Olympic Games at Rio 2016, remains an ambassador of table tennis in the continent.President of ITTF Africa, Khaled El-Salhy, recalled Toriola’s sterling qualities while presenting an award to the Nigerian at the 2016 ITTF Africa Senior Championships holding in Agadir, Morocco yesterday. The Executive Council of ITTF Africa paid glowing tributes to Toriola for putting the continent’s table tennis on the world map as the first athlete in any sport in Africa to attain that height in the history of the Games.The ITTF Africa boss revealed that the decision to honour Toriola was taken by the Executive Council of ITTF Africa for his giant stride in the world.“It was the decision of the Executive Council to give such award to Segun Toriola, who is a legend of table tennis not only in Africa but also in the world following his great achievement of being the first African to make seven appearances at the Olympic Games from 1992 to 2016.“We also we believe that he has the chance to break his own record by making it to Tokyo 2020 with the quality he still possesses,” El-Salhy observed with enthusiasm.El-Salhy believes Toriola would serves as a role model for young players in Africa with his 100 per cent commitment to the sport on and off the table.“Toriola commitment to table tennis is 100 per cent and this is why he will remain an inspiration to young players in Africa.He is also an ambassador of table tennis when it comes to fair play. His excellent performance at every competition, couple with his humility, are traits that singled him out among other players in Africa,” ITTF Africa boss concluded.Meanwhile, ITTF Africa has unveiled the list of qualified teams for the 2018 World Team Championships holding in Sweden.In the men’s team list, Egypt and Nigeria qualified based on their performance at the Perfect 2016 World Team Championships held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in which they finished among the top 36 countries in the world.Togo also secured its place after finishing second in the fourth division at the Perfect 2016 World Team Championship in Malaysia.Others like Algeria, Congo Brazzaville, Tunisia, South Africa and Senegal qualified based on their results in the team event at the 2016 ITTF African Senior Championships.However, in the list of qualified team for women, Nigeria was missing following the absence of its female team at the ITTF Africa Senior Championships, with Egypt also topping the list based on the performance of her female players at the Perfect 2016 World Team Championships in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in which they finished among the top 36 countries in the world.South Africa, Tunisia, Algeria, Congo Brazzaville and Morocco qualified based on their result in the team event of the 2016 ITTF African Senior Championships.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Planting still stalled for most of OhioPlanting still stalled for most of Ohio

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Andy Rodefer, Preble Co.In the last two weeks we had about two days we could get in the fields. We got in and sprayed and spread some fertilizer. It was still touch and go because there were still some wet places. We have been getting just enough rain to keep us out. About every time it has rained we get about half an inch and it has been cool enough that it dries out pretty slow.I have one neighbor that did plant some corn a couple of weeks ago on some well-ditched fields. Nothing is up yet there and to my knowledge there is no one else around here who has planted anything. It is getting there but we need some warm weather coming in here again.There are definitely some fields in the area getting pretty green. We sprayed quite a bit last fall and ran our vertical till disk last fall. Where we did that the fields don’t look too bad yet, but the fields that have not been touched last fall or this spring are getting pretty green.This week is looking pretty good so far. We got .7 last Saturday and we are a couple days out before we can get back on for spraying or spreading fertilizer. If things hold together we might be able to get planting later in the week.We have planted in mid April before but it is usually not prime time until that first week of May or so. It looks like we might have a chance to do that if things shape up here.For the rest of this week’s reports, click here.last_img read more

Squatter’s rights being sussed out in the Ohio Supreme CourtSquatter’s rights being sussed out in the Ohio Supreme Court

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest House cats understand squatter’s rights. Just watch them. We just added a third one to our household, and he knows the cat rules about jockeying for the best territory in the house. Right now, that is in the kitchen near the space heater. In fact, he is now stretched out in front of my computer screen, blocking part of my view.Ohio actually recognizes a form of squatter’s rights, adverse possession, although it is very difficult to obtain land ownership this way. The elements of adverse possession in our state are exclusive possession, open, notorious and adverse use of the land for 21 years. All elements must be proven by clear and convincing evidence. A “quiet title” action is filed to claim ownership of land this way.The Ohio Supreme Court heard oral arguments in an adverse possession case in May of this year. The parties in Don Koprivec, et al v. Rails-to-Trails of Wayne County, 2016-0704, are waiting for a decision. The issue before the Court is whether the actions of licensees on property interrupt the “exclusive possession” of adverse possession.The property they are fighting over consists of eight miles of an old abandoned railroad corridor that runs through three parcels of land, owned by the Koprivecs (purchased in 1981), the Bilinoviches (purchased in 1996) and the Koontzes (purchased in 1998). The landowners exercised control and openly used the disputed property, regularly using it and caring for it. They posted no trespassing signs. They built structures. They ran out any trespassers.By 1970, the disputed property was no longer used for trains. The Railroad removed the wooden rails in 1989. A property manager of the Railroad inspected the property in the 1990s and 2000s. AT&T and Sprint were granted 15-year licenses, with two 15-year renewal options during ownership by the Railroad. In 2007, one of the licensees cleared brush on the disputed property.Rails-to-Trails of Wayne County, a non-profit, purchased this property from Norfolk Southern Railway in 2009, with the intent of converting it into a public trail. In February of 2011, the landowners filed a declaratory judgment and action to quiet title to the disputed property, alleging adverse possession. Rails-to-Trails promptly counterclaimed, asserting that the landowners were trespassing.Rails-to-Trails was granted summary judgment in the trial court, which means they won without having to go through a trial. The landowners appealed, and the Ninth District Court of Appeals dismissed the appeal for lack of a final appealable order. So the trial court again granted summary judgment to Rails-to-Trails, finding that the recorded licensing agreements between the Railroad and AT&T and Sprint and their related activities were sufficient to defeat the exclusive use element of adverse possession.The landowners appealed to the Ninth Circuit again. This time the appellate court reversed, finding that the trial court erred in granting summary judgment to Rails-to-Trails because the licensing agreements between the Railroad and AT&T and Sprint and their related activities were not sufficient to defeat the exclusive use element of adverse possession. One Judge held that the licenses were irrevocable and essentially easements.The Ohio Supreme Court accepted the case. And now the parties wait to see how the Supreme Court views the actions of the licensees. Adverse Possession is disfavored under Ohio law, but the facts and issue before the Court makes for an interesting case. Will the activities to install and maintain fiber optic cables, including a massive right-of-way brush clearing in 2007 be sufficient to defeat the adverse possession element of exclusivity? I will be looking for this decision.Meanwhile, if you are a property owner, think like a tomcat. Mark your territory, so to speak. In this case, if the Railroad had paid more attention to the disputed eight acres and made sure all neighboring landowners knew it was their property, this case would never have happened. Regular inspections and prohibiting and enforcing unauthorized use of the acreage would have stopped an adverse possession claim before it started and created years of litigation and thousands of dollars in legal fees.last_img read more

No alcohol was found in his system.ADVERTISEMENT Woods announced last month he had completed treatment at an out-of-state clinic to deal with his use of prescription medications.His 79 PGA Tour victories and 14 major titles both rank No. 2 all-time.

He would also have to attend a workshop where victims of impaired drivers detail how their lives were damaged and face other conditions. Since the program began four years ago, almost 2,400 defendants have enrolled, according to the Palm Beach County State Attorney’s Office.If convicted of DUI, Woods would have faced a fine of between $500 and $1,000, had his car impounded for 10 days and other conditions. He also could have been jailed for up to six months, although that was unlikely, received probation and lost his driver’s license for six months to a year.The DUI arrest was the first time Woods had been in trouble since Thanksgiving weekend 2009, when he plowed his SUV into a tree and a fire hydrant outside his then-Windermere, Florida, home. That led to revelations that he had multiple extramarital affairs and a divorce from his wife Elin Nordegren, the mother of his two children. He spent 45 days in a Mississippi clinic where he was treated for sex addiction.Woods was arrested at 2 a.m. May 29 about 15 miles from his home in Jupiter, Florida, when officers found him unconscious in his Mercedes-Benz, which was parked awkwardly on the side of the road and had damage to the driver’s side. It’s not clear how he damaged the car. Officers checked the area but didn’t find that he had hit anything.Woods didn’t know where he was when asked by officers, and he stumbled and swayed through a field sobriety test, police dashboard camera video showed. Woods told officers he was taking the painkiller Vicodin and Xanax, which treats anxiety and insomnia, to cope with his fourth back surgery in April.ADVERTISEMENT DILG, PNP back suspension of classes during SEA Games MOST READ View commentslast_img read more
