2 teenagers injured in Cadiz shooting – Sun.Star

TWO teenagers were injured after they were shot by a laborer at Cabahug Street, Barangay Zone 4 in Cadiz City, Negros Occidental on Monday, police said.

One of the victims was identified as Allan Gonzaga, 19, of Barangay Zone 6 while the name of the 17-year-old victim was withheld by the Cadiz City Police Station.

Investigation showed that Gonzaga was walking with his friends, including the minor, after they attended an alumni homecoming event in their school around 1 a.m., when 22-year-old Rommel dela Torre fired at them.

Dela Torre reportedly used an improvised shotgun and fled.

Jealousy motivated De la Torre to commit the crime after he saw his ex-girlfriend together with one of the victims, investigation further showed. (GYM)

British Sailing announces squad for new Olympic cycle – Eurosport.com


In a statement released by British Sailing announcing the crews for the upcoming Olympiad, Shaw – who won bronze at Beijing 2008 – has announced she and partner, US sailor Brad Funk, are expecting a baby in June.


The 33-year-old, a three-time World and European medallist in the RS:X, is hoping to return to action towards the end of the year, giving her plenty of time to mount her quest for a second Olympic medal.


“Brad and I are so excited to be expecting our first baby!” she said.
“We’re all doing really well and the timing is perfect in that it will hopefully allow me a great run-in to Tokyo.


“Obviously there will be a lot to get to grips with once the baby arrives, but I have great support and I believe I still have what it takes to compete at the highest level.


“There’s a fantastic team at the British Sailing Team who can help keep me in shape and get me back up to fitness when the time is right.


“Countless other mums pursue successful careers, including in sport, and I’m really looking forward to that challenge.”


Elsewhere in the squad, multi-Olympic medallists Nick Dempsey and Saskia Clark will be absent from the RYA’s World Class Programme for the first time since 1998 and 2001 respectively after calling time on their Olympic careers.


Clark’s gold-medal winning helm in the 470 class Hannah Mills is enjoying a new challenge competing in the 49erFX women’s skiff, with a view to forming a permanent partnership later in the year.


In the same class, Rio Olympians Charlotte Dobson and Sophie Ainsworth have formed new partnerships, with Dobson teaming up with Saskia Tidey, and Ainsworth with Kate Macgregor.


World champions Nick Thompson and Alison Young will continue their pursuit for further glory in the Laser and Laser Radial events, while Dylan Fletcher and Stuart Bithell have joined forces in the 49er.


Olympic champion Giles Scott is taking a sabbatical from the Finn to focus on this year’s America’s Cup.


“Our athletes have really hit the ground running in 2017,” said RYA Olympic Manager Stephen Park.


“We’ve just concluded our first winter training camp in Cadiz and a number of sailors are about to compete at their first Sailing World Cup regatta of the year out in Miami.


“The first year of the Olympic cycle is always an exciting one with new teams looking to establish themselves and some of the younger talents who’ve been knocking at the door aiming to show their own intentions towards the next Games.


“It’ll be fascinating to see what unfolds.”

New courthouse security doors approved in Cadiz – Martins Ferry Times Leader

<!–

–>

CADIZ — New security at the Harrison County Courthouse was one of the issues discussed by Harrison County commissioners on Wednesday.

Commissioners heard from Harrison County Judge Thomas Shawn Hervey about installing security doors, which cost about $11,000 apiece, at two locations inside the courthouse. Hervey said he is bringing the issue to the attention to commissioners since they discussed it at the Oct. 12 meeting, and he believes the issue “got put on the backburner.”

“It’s something we really believe needs done,” Hervey said.

The plan calls fro two sets of security doors to be installed; one near the engineer’s office, and one upstairs, which would deny access to the small courtroom near Hervey’s office. He said currently all security in the courthouse is located on the second floor of the building, which is not a lot for a three-story building.

He added since a verbal “yes” was given on the project in October, he would like the work to begin as soon as possible, adding it would probably save money to install both sets at once. Commissioners voted to approve the installment of the doors, while also tabling the discussion about upgrading the security cameras in the building until Commissioner Paul Coffland had time to look it over.

The commissioners then entered an executive session to discuss personnel matters. After 15 minutes, the commissioners returned to regular session, with no action taken.

Commissioners then heard from Doug Crabtree, representing the Harrison County engineers. Crabtree brought an amendment to the roadway maintenance agreement with Sunoco Pipeline, who said that they require the use of an additional county road for their vehicles; the amendment was approved by commissioners. Crabtree also announced that portions of Ohio 799 will be shut down for a period of time to allow work on two bridges in the area; the work is expected to be completed in 120 days. The work will impede trucks from getting to four well sites, and trucks were asking to use another county road to get to the locations. Commissioners approved the request.

The commissioners also approved appropriations for the health department, as well as travel requests and vouchers for the Department of Jobs and Family Services.

The Harrison County Board of Commissioners meets at 10 a.m. every Wednesday in the Harrison County Courthouse, Cadiz.

Tourism commits funds to parks and rec | News | The Cadiz Record – Cadiz Record

BY MARY GARRISON MINYARD mgarrison@cadizrecord.com

The Cadiz-Trigg County Tourist and Convention Commission has voted to commit some 25 percent of its funding to a proposed parks and recreation committee.

The move came Thursday during a regularly scheduled Tourism commission meeting. The effort, should an ordinance to impose the committee be passed, would allocate 25 percent of restaurant tax collections to the committee to execute on plans that would typically fall under the umbrella of a parks and recreation department, such as the recently proposed multi-use practice facility at the Trigg Recreation Complex.

The committee, as proposed in a motion originating from Cadiz City Council but passed on to tourism, would be a joint commission consisting of appointees from Tourism, the city and County. Funding diverted from Tourism would include the 5 percent presently allocated to the city for collecton and disbursement of the restaurant tax.

Commissioner Kevin Atwood, who introduced the motion to the commission, said he felt the proposed commission should have at least two members appointed by Tourism, as the commission would be providing the largest percentage of funding toward the effort.

“Unless everybody is putting in an equal amount of money — for example, if Tourism is putting in 20-25 percent of this deal — I think Tourism ought to be represented with more than one member,” Atwood said. “I think Tourism ought to have two because we’re putting the bulk of the money in, that’s the only thing I would propose differently.”

City Council members attended the meeting to express their support for allocating the funds, as well as voice concerns some have said they’ve had from residents on how the restaurant tax is used. Moving forward public projects such as the multi-use facility, according to Councilman Brian Futrell would provide something concrete for residents to see in terms of how the tax is used.

“A lot of our folks in the city are asking about the city restaurant tax,” Futrell said. “â ¦ A lot of them don’t understand about the advertisement part and how important that is. â ¦ I understand how important that is to you guys and our community about bringing folks in here to spend dollars. It impacts all businesses and helps our community grow as well. We’re not here to take any of that away from Tourism â ¦ we’re just here to work to show something from that restaurant tax from local people that are contributing with it.”

The Tourism commission voted unanimously to contribute funding toward a parks and rec committee, should it come to fruition. The proposed five-member board would include members appointed by the mayor and Trigg County Judge-Executive.

Neither the city or county had met to hold a public vote on the committee as of press time.
