Yorkshire and Gloucestershire were the winners on an ace first day at the English Men’s County Finals at Aldeburgh, Suffolk.Gloucestershire’s Nick Day provided the highlight with a hole-in-one on the 4th en route to a win in the morning foursomes. Then, the English mid-amateur champion followed up by delivering the winning point in the singles, taking the team to a 5-4 win over BB&O (Berks, Bucks & Oxon).Gloucestershire were put on the back foot after the three foursomes when only Day (pictured top) and his partner, Alex Ireland, managed to win. The hole in one helped, although BB&O’s George Baylis almost answered him, with a shot which ran round the rim of the hole before settling a foot away. “It couldn’t have been closer without going in,” said referee Graham Webb.However, the South West team quickly grabbed the initiative in the singles. International Joe Long rocketed off to win 7/5, followed by Joe Harvey who posted a score of 7/6 and then the 3/2 win of England player Mitch Waite.Gloucestershire needed one more point and Day provided it when he came out on top after a very close match against Tim Shin. “It was a real topsy-turvy game,” he said after finishing 2up.Day had been 2up on the outward half, only to drop behind around the turn. The par three 13th and 15th, which he played in birdie, par, changed his fortunes and gave him a narrow lead which he clung to resolutely as the pressure built.Team captain Gary Ward praised his team: “They were awesome. They really dug deep.”The day’s other match saw Yorkshire beat Lincolnshire 6.5-2.5 in an intriguing encounter. All of the Lincolnshire players work and play golf in their spare time; only one of the Yorkshire players has a full-time job. He’s Lewis Hollingworth, (pictured left) a PE teacher at Maltby Academy, Rotherham – and he played a key role in today’s victory.Hollingworth, playing in his first County Finals, teamed up with Sam Bairstow to give Yorkshire a 2-1 lead after the morning foursomes. They hadn’t been in front since winning the first hole, but they turned the game around when they parred the 17th to go 1up and then held on to win when the 18th was halved. The team’s other foursomes point was provided by Sam Rook and Bailey Gill, who also won 1up.In the afternoon Yorkshire were quick to put more points on the board with internationals David Hague and Gill both winning 6/4 at the top of the order.Then it fell to Hollingworth to take the team over the winning line on the 14th with his 5/4 win. “Darryl (team captain) said on the 13th tee that we were looking all right, but that if I could get over the line it would be good,” said Hollingworth, who duly obeyed orders with a pair of pars.The Yorkshire total was further boosted by Bairstow, who won 3/1, and by Rook, the county champion, who halved his game.Yorkshire captain Darryl Berry has enormous confidence in his players’ ability in the singles – although the big names in his team mean they’re always a target. “We have a lot of players who would be big scalps for other teams, but I’m always confident they will win. It helps for us to have those players because the whole team bounce off each other,” he said.• Gloucestershire secretary James McPherson and his wife, Carole, took the phrase ‘flying the flag’ to heart (pictured below). They carried their county flag around the course – while a contingent of BB&O players took pleasure in standing in front of it to block the view!Tomorrow Yorkshire will play BB&O while Gloucestershire take on Lincolnshire. 28 Sep 2018 Yorkshire and Gloucestershire forge ahead on an ace day Tags: Aldeburgh Golf Club, BB&O, County Finals, Gloucestershire, Lincolnshire, Men’s Golf, Yorkshire
RED BANK – Resident Carol Sullivan Schulte is encouraging the Parkinson’s community to learn about the potential benefits of exercise.Working with the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation (PDF) and nearby health-care professionals, she is hosting an educational forum, Parkinson’s Disease and Exercise: How to Improve Your Daily Quality of Life, from 9:45 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, June 5, at the Tower Hill Presbyterian Church in Red Bank.Schulte has been active in the Parkinson’s cause since her own diagnosis in 1996. In 2010, she completed an intensive three-day training to join PDF’s Parkinson’s Advocates in Research program. Her work with the program to speed new treatments for Parkinson’s includes community education about clinical trials. The exercise enthusiast is particularly passionate about research into exercise as a therapy for Parkinson’s.She has arranged for local experts, including Dr. Margery H. Mark of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, to discuss how exercise can help manage Parkinson’s symptoms and the different types of programs available locally. Topics to be discussed include personalized physical therapy programs and resistance training for strength gains.“I’m offering this forum to show the people in my community living with Parkinson’s how they can be more proactive in improving their daily living. Even if it’s just sitting in a wheelchair lifting weights, or walking around the block, you have to keep at it. Parkinson’s is not the death sentence we all think it is,” Schulte said.Robin Elliott, executive director of PDF, said: “We are inspired by PDF Research Advocates like Ms. Schulte who strive to educate people with Parkinson’s not only about research but on ways to enhance day-to-day life with Parkinson’s. She is a key partner in PDF’s mission to support the research and ideas that will improve the lives and futures of people touched by Parkinson’s.”For more information about Schulte’s exercise forum or the PAIR program, please contact PDF at (800) 457-6676, email@example.com or www.pdf.org.To register for the Parkinson’s Disease and Exercise, contact Schulte at 732-530-8032.

Irish Water has managed to fix just 380 of the 900 leaks targeted across Co Donegal this year.A huge amount of leaks across Donegal have still not been fixed.The figures are part of an overall countrywide breakdown found by an RTE investigation.Outside centres of major urban population like Dublin, Cork and Limerick, Donegal has one of the highest amounts of unfixed leaks. The disclosure comes as it was revealed that investment by Irish Water in infrastructure this year is set to be significantly lower than the average annual spend by Government over the previous ten years.Documents show the company’s capital spend on infrastructure up to November this year was €300m.The average annual spend by Government between 2004 and 2013 was €430m. Other documents show Irish Water is on course to fix the same number of leaks this year as were repaired last year.However plans to fix leaks in Co Donegal is considerably down.This is despite a massive water meter installation programme that the company said would help it to find leaks.However, the last two years has seen the lowest level of investment in water services since 1998.Investment peaked at €512m in 2009, but the Government spent just €275m in 2013, as it prepared to hand over the system to Irish Water.In the first 11 months of this year, Irish Water spent just under €300m. It is committed to investing €1.77 billion over the three years 2014, 2015 and 2016.On leaks, the company has predicted that installing water meters will help it to pinpoint where water is being lost.However, despite installing half 500,000 meters, it is on course to repair around the same number of leaks as last year, at just over 26,000.The company said it had made significant progress identifying and fixing some major water leaks and its capital spend will be €340m by the end of this year.

The strategy is to use the energy, the innovativeness of our young people to solve the burning social, environmental and economic problems, and that is what the CAP programme is about,” Mr. Holness said.The Jamaican team of high-school students – Deneka Pusey, Sophia Morris, Devonte Williams and Noel McDonald – emerged in second place at the 2018 staging of the Diamond Challenge for High School Entrepreneurs at the US-based university. They were awarded for their social venture, ‘Paradise Care’.It was designed to lead efforts in the collection of waste plastic, and its conversion into useable products. The students showcased a functional prototype of their first product, USAVER, a powerbank and lamp built from plastic bottles.The Diamond Challenge is an innovative entrepreneurship concept competition for high-school students hosted by the University of Delaware. The young entrepreneurs are trained to conceive, test and pitch ideas for a new social venture.The CAP is an initiative of the Government of Jamaica, through the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information, to respond to the number of learners who complete secondary-level education without any formal certification, and have not matriculated to post-secondary-level education or work.
