Students jazz up Clark College

first_imgClark College’s Gaiser Hall roared with jazz and the din of hundreds of student musicians, representing more than 40 schools around Oregon and Washington, for the 57th annual Clark College Jazz Festival.Doug Harris, the new director of bands at the college following Richard Inouye’s retirement last spring, said that since he’s moved here in August, people he meets keep checking with him to make sure there would be a festival this year.“It’s part of the fabric of the community,” he said.The festival began in 1962, according to organizers, when Hudson’s Bay High School’s band director organized a one-day invitational performance for local high school bands. Vancouver and Evergreen high schools took turns hosting, with the early years’ trophies made from miscellaneous hardware and car parts.Now, the college expected to see more than 1,200 student jazz players, with more than 3,000 guests. Volunteers put in about 800 hours of work to make it all happen.Harris’ acquaintances’ concerns, then, might make some sense.“As far as I’m concerned,” it’s been a glorious success,” Harris said Saturday afternoon, shortly after the Clark College Jazz Band performed it’s last set of the three-day event.last_img read more

Ibrahimovic enjoying crazy start to Holloywood

first_imgZlatan Ibrahimovic has revealed that he is enjoying his new “crazy start” to life at Hollywood after scoring a brace in his debut for LA GalaxyThe star made an instant impact on his debut in the MLS last Saturday by scoring a 40-yard stunner and then adding a second later on, as Galaxy overcame a 3-0 deficit to defeat Los Angeles FC 4-3.After an injury-ridden season at Manchester United, where the former Swede international’s appearances had become increasingly restrictive, Ibrahimovic is delighted to be playing regular football once more.“Every movie has a good start; hopefully it has a good ending also,” said Ibrahimovic, according to Sky Sports.“It has been a crazy start, playing the first game and scoring two goals – expectations are very high.“I demanded a lot from myself, I put a lot of pressure on myself because every time I play I want to perform. I want to do what I know I can do.“It will take time to adapt to everything but I’m just happy I’m playing football after my injury. I appreciate every time I put on my boots.”When asked who should play him in a movie, Ibrahimovic said: “Probably somebody like [Sylvester] Stallone.”harry maguire, manchester UnitedMaguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…The forward admitted that he may be unable to watch the Manchester derby on Saturday due to the jet lag he is currently recovering from, as United will be looking to prevent their local rivals Manchester City from claiming the Premier League title.“I don’t know because of the jet lag, probably not at that time!

Hopefully things go well – let’s see if I’m awake.”But Ibrahimovic is confident that his former United coach Jose Mourinho will have a plan to spoil the celebrations for City.“I think they are pumped. They are looking forward to a game like that because obviously City are ahead by many points and the rest of the league is not playing for the Premier League trophy,” predicted Ibrahimovic.“They are playing for the Champions League and the places behind City so someone will want to give them a little shake like Liverpool did the other day.“I know the coach very well. He is very motivated for these kind of games and I’m pretty sure he doesn’t want them to become champions against him. He’ll make sure of that.”last_img read more

Mosquito Infestation Intensifies

first_img Zika spread by sex too, says Scientist Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppThe mosquitoes are breeding like rabbits and making residents miserable – that original apathy now turning to anger in some cases; most concerning though is if that means there has been any surge in cases of Dengue Fever and Chikungunya in the TCI. Cursory checks revealed that some stores are running out of Off and other Deet containing products as the mosquito problem intensifies… MM has been issuing scheduled spraying exercises by area by the Environmental health Department through WhatsApp and the reaction is interesting…. Residents are calling for the Dept to bring its ONE fogger to areas already completed and that’s mere hours after the spraying was done… this could mean, mosquitoes are breeding at such a rapid rate the lone team cannot keep pace. In North & Middle Caicos – again with one team – we understand, they have reverted to spraying to kill mosquitoes even during the daytime.

When the truth of the matter is they’re trying to throw someone under the bus.”Walkin said there is a lack of transparency and clear understanding of the financials at the country’s health plan.  “We cannot address our issues, because we don’t know exactly what is going on.  That is why persons in public life must be honest and must be able to clearly explain to the people in detail what they have a right to know.”Jas Walkin suggested what he believes needs to happen when it comes to medical care for those paying into the plan and their dependents.  “I want to know, what makes Jamaica’s facilities better than ours.

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppTurks and Caicos, April 18, 2017 – Grand Turk – Historically today, the Turks and Caicos will hear the financial plan of a new government which is led by a lady, who also happens to be the country’s Minister of Finance, Investment and Trade, Hon Sharlene Robinson.It has been 13 years since the People’s Democratic Movement as Government has laid out their fiscal strategy for the Turks and Caicos Islands, and while the budget is said to have a continuation of many PNP projects there are allotments which the PDM is touting as characteristic of what their party deems important to national development.In a debrief this morning, Speaker of the House of Assembly, Hon Dwayne Taylor shared with Magnetic Media that coverage of the session will be wide with live streaming online at Facebook courtesy of Life Productions, on Digicel Play Ch2 also courtesy of Life Productions; on radio via Radio Turks and Caicos which also has live audio streaming from its website and aired over Ch53 on the PTV network and there is live coverage by 4News on the Digicel network.Hon Taylor said he anticipates 100% attendance by all elected and appointed members of Parliament for the convening which opened at 10am and opening prayer is by Rev. Claire Robinson. Acting Attorney General, Dr. Michael Dillon will be sworn in to fill the ex-officio role of the AG in the House of Assembly, as Hon RhondaLee Braithwaite-Knowles is absent.The Appropriations Bill 2017-2018 will be presented by Premier Robinson, a rebuttal by the Leader of the Opposition PNP or a designate will follow.    “It is expected that debate on the Budget will take up most of the proceedings and we expect that the Bill will go through all three readings today,” explained Speaker Taylor.While you never know, the Speaker said he expects there to be no hiccups in HOA operations today, and announced that within this fiscal year it is expected that the House of Assembly will again be relocated for 3-4 months for repairs, which includes the leaky roof of the NJS Francis Building, which is where parliament is housed.  The building is a part of an already heralded ‘green project’ by the PDM Administration.Two other bills are on the agenda for a possible first reading, and the hot button issue of service charges to hospitality workers will see the Private Members Motion requesting an amendment to the law likely to a second reading within this session which runs until this Friday, April 21, 2017.The Premier does have the prerogative to re-order the agenda, so things could change explained the Speaker.  On the order paper, five questions from the Opposition; four from Leeward and Long Bay Hills member, Hon Akierra Missick and one question from Appointed member for the PNP, Hon Royal Robinson.The House of Assembly is currently in session.#MagneticMediaNews#HOAinsession#historicdayinTCIHouseofAssembly Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:#historicdayinTCIHouseofAssembly, #HOAinsession, #magneticmedianewslast_img read more

No mail for GrandTurk PDA leader blasts PDM Administration

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#TurksandCaicos, February 19, 2018 – Providenciales – After weeks of Grand Turk residents not being able to receive any mail from overseas and the family Islands due to long outstanding debts to the local airline, frustration is now escalating as residents feel that enough is definitely enough.This is yet another example of neglect at unprecedented levels that the people of these Islands are now suffering as tensions are growing and there seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel.A visit to the post office today to check for mail proved to be yet another futile one as there was still no mail transported from Providenciales, the port of entry and redistribution for international and local mail from the family Islands to the Grand Turk post office.  While the internet and private courier services provide for much of today’s communications, there are still important business and family communications and transfer of parcels that are done via air and surface mail through the government post offices in these islands.Let us hope and pray that this problem would soon be solved and Grand Turk people will once again have postal service to and from that island and be relieved of some of the frustration that is now commonplace.Release: Oswald Skippings Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:last_img read more

Alan Webb seeks Chevy franchise

first_imgAlan Webb confirmed Thursday that he is negotiating to purchase Curt Warner’s Vancouver Chevrolet dealership and move the brand’s operation from its Mill Plain Boulevard outpost to state Highway 500, near the city’s largest concentration of auto dealers.July 31 will be the last day of business for Curt Warner Chevrolet, according to a notification letter the company sent to its strategic partners and vendors.

High river levels prompt bridge lifts

first_imgTraffic on Interstate 5 was congested this morning earlier than usual, the result of a bridge lift that occurred at about 6 a.m.The familiar annoyance has become more frequent of late because of high water levels in the Columbia River. This morning, the Columbia stands at 17.38 feet, well into the 16-foot flood stage. Federal law gives marine traffic the right-of-way at the bridge, though bridge lifts on Interstate 5 will not occur during peak weekday freeway travel – from 6:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday.At its current level, any flooding from the river is not expected to cause much damage. The National Weather Service predicts to the river will rise by Saturday to between 17.8 feet and 18 feet.Motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists using drawbridges to cross the Willamette River in Portland will also encounter delays due to increased bridge lifts.last_img read more
