Lottery Ticket to make winning debut

first_img (1) BALLON D’OR/SHINE (2) MAMETA/SONG ON TRACK (3) CAMOUFLAGE/BATIDOR DE MUNDO (4) LOTTERY TICKET (5) RUNAWAY GIRL/LIKE A LADY (6) FORCE DE JOUR/BIG GEORGE FANCIES The exotic bets start anew on tomorrow’s 11-race Caymanas Park programme after punters cashed in over the Easter weekend. Both Super-6s offer the guaranteed minimum of $750,000, the first commencing from race one through to race six, and the twilight six embracing race six to 11. We look at the first Super-6, which gets under way with a 4-y-o and up restricted stakes over 1700 metres to be contested by six starters, including the likely favourite BALLON D’OR, to be ridden by top apprentice Linton Steadman for top-line trainer Anthony Nunes. The former record-priced yearling at the 2013 TOBA yearling sale has finished second in his two recent races, failing by 1-1/2 to beat MIND SET over 1400 metres, a performance that gives him the edge over SHINE (running well) over what is a more ideal trip for him. The improving filly MAMETA, with Orlando Foster aboard, holds the key to the second race for maiden four-year-olds over 1100 metres following her good second to CHEXIMAKIT in the Al Gopie Memorial Cup over the straight last Saturday. MAMETA, a lightly raced 4-y-o filly by Storm Craft from the stables of Patrick Lynch, looked improved when running with Lasix for the first time six days ago and now pointed in the right direction, should lead home SONG ON TRACK and IAMALLABOUTTHEBEST in a field of nine. Six horses from the $250,000 $210,0000 claiming spread will contest the third race over 1500 metres. Down in class 4-y-o colt CAMOUFLAGE, with only 52.0kg for the services of 3.0kg claiming apprentice Bebeto Harvey, should have the measure of the consistent BATIDOR DE MUNDO with Jevanne Erwin aboard. These two look a cut above the others and it should be close between them. A field of 10 maiden three-year-olds is slated for the fourth race over 1100 metres, from which the well-forward debutante LOTTERY TICKET (Omar Walker up) is tipped to open her account right away. Trained by 15-time champion Wayne DaCosta, this 3-y-o bay filly by Seeking The Glory out of Just A Flutter has looked sharp at exercise, catching the eye on March 12 when galloping 1100 metres in a brisk 1:08.0 by 1:01.4. Only last Saturday, she looked easy in a 1000 metres gallop in 1:02.0, and with her preparation complete, should lead home fellow debutante AUNTIE RHONDA (Shane Ellis up) and FLYING MACHINE. The last two races in the first Super-6 should be won by another DaCosta-trained first-time runner RUNAWAY GAL, (working well) with Walker aboard, and recent winner FORCE DE JOUR under the improving apprentice Javaneil Patterson in the sixth race over the straight for high claimers. Their respective dangers are LIKE A LADY and BIG GEORGE.center_img FIRST SUPER-6last_img read more

Addressing rural Ohio’s drug epidemic

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Rural Ohio has a heroin problem.The subject has been coming up more often lately in conversation and it even found its way into state policy for some of Ohio’s farm organizations. Heroin used to be considered more of an inner city drug, but now it is affecting the suburbs and rural areas of Ohio as well due to a number of factors.“This affects every rural community in the state of Ohio. Unlike other drug epidemics that we saw mostly focused in the cities, this is everywhere. It is in the suburbs and rural areas and it is many times more likely to be in the rural areas than in the cities. It kills four, five or six people a day in Ohio. It does not discriminate gender, race, income — everybody is susceptible to this. Your community has a heroin problem and you may not know it. It has swept across Ohio and we don’t know exactly why,” said Mike DeWine, Ohio Attorney General. “The Mexican drug cartels have a great business model. They grow the poppies in Mexico and transport the heroin across our southern border and then market it very well. You can get heroin delivered to you as easy and quickly as buying a pizza. What starts as a $15 a day habit may go to a $1,500 a day habit. Late stage heroin addicts may need 100 times more heroin than an early stage addict. Around 90% of the crime in every county in the state of Ohio is caused directly or indirectly by drugs and there is no easy way to fix it.“We need to be doing a much better job with education and prevention. We have had a cultural change in Ohio. When I was a county prosecutor in the late 1970s in Greene County, heroin was something that was not very often in our rural areas and suburbs. There was some psychological barrier that stopped people from doing heroin. Today that barrier is flat and we have to put that barrier back up. That will take a grassroots effort in local communities to rise up and do something about this. This issue is so bad that I have six people on my staff focused on working at the local level and education, prevention and treatment.”Andrea Fox from rural Fairfield County has seen the devastating impact of heroin first hand.“My daughter was born with a congenital kidney defect. It wasn’t identified until she was around 12 and by then a lot of damage had been done. She has been in chronic pain for a good portion of her life. The doctors prescribed narcotic pain medication from the time she was pretty young. She built a tolerance and she had multiple surgeries, which they said fixed the problem, but it was not fixed. After that, the doctors treated her as if all of her pain related behaviors were drug-seeking behaviors. And likely some of them were, though she did have legitimate pain. They were not giving her any more pain meds and she took matters into her own hands,” Fox said. “It started out with her trying to find prescription drugs in her early to mid 20s. Eventually those drugs didn’t work any more because she had built up a tolerance. When you compare the street price of oxycontin to a bag of heroin it is significant. You can get a bag of heroin for as little as $5. It ultimately becomes a financial decision and heroin is everywhere.”Finding resources for help with addiction can be particularly challenging in rural areas.“Trying to address this issue becomes very difficult. Franklin County has quite a few services in Columbus but even they don’t have enough resources and services. The outlying counties are very resource poor. Living in rural Fairfield County where there is an enormous heroin problem, but trying to get a child into treatment is difficult if you do not have money laying around to spend or extremely good health insurance. It gets really hard because there isn’t much assistance out there,” Fox said. “In Fairfield County I am not aware of any medication assisted treatment programs that take health insurance. They only take cash. Many people on heroin want to get sober but withdrawal makes them sick. So they continue to use to avoid being sick, and the resources to get sober are largely unavailable.”Along with the physical addiction, heroin can be mentally and socially devastating as well.“There are a lot of different behaviors associated with heroin. It is not always just the drug they are addicted to. It is also these behaviors. You really have to compromise yourself to do a lot of the things people do to obtain heroin. Many people compromise themselves and their principles to obtain heroin. It takes your self-esteem. It takes away your everything. Heroin kills your soul,” Fox said. “It is not a party drug. It is often a drug people come to as a last ditch effort.  Chronic pain issues are a big reason many people start with heroin. A lot of people also come to it through mental health disorders and other substance abuse issues. Some families are raised this way and that is all they know.“My daughter was doing it and my two boys saw it and kind of followed the same path. Their father is an alcoholic and that put them at much greater risk for addiction. Now they are both addicted as well.”The challenges in her family’s struggle with addiction led to the need for a career change for Fox.“I had custody of my daughter’s four children and I still had my youngest daughter who was a teenager. I was working mostly as a freelance artist, which was not a steady source of income. With the kids, I needed more steady income and I was thinking about how difficult this journey had been for me as a parent trying unsuccessfully to get help for my children struggling with addiction. There are so many things that go along with that —like not sleeping at night because you don’t know where your kids are. It is a heartbreaking situation for everyone,” she said. “I thought if I had to make a career change, it should be something that will do some good and something that I am good at. It seems like I have always been able to help everyone except my kids. I decided to look into the field of addiction studies.”She went back to Columbus State to get a certificate in addiction studies and complimentary health studies to accompany the bachelor’s degree she had already gotten. She graduated last year. Now she works as a mentor for the Stable Cradle Program of Maryhaven in Columbus and has certification as a chemical dependency counseling assistant.“I work with opioid-dependent women who are expecting. I am with them through their pregnancies and one year postpartum. I pick them up and take them to appointments. I also help connect them to community resources, provide some counseling and recovery support, help them discover new tools that they can use to help them stay strong in their recovery, and in a couple of cases, provide support during labor and delivery. I am their all-around resource person,” Fox said. “If there is any way I can help them get anything they need that is what I do. Right now I have 24 clients in Franklin County. It is a challenge that takes a lot of creative time management.“One of the biggest issues that is not addressed for these women is that it is hard to find stable, safe housing. Some are homeless. Some are living in houses with other substance users, which makes it extremely difficult to stop using in that situation. These women often do not have any community or a good positive support network they can count on when they need something. Sometimes they just need someone to talk to. I do what I can but ultimately what helps them the most is good, positive people they can go to when they are having a problem.”The job is challenging and, some days, very rewarding.“As hard as it can be sometimes, I don’t take my clients recovery or non-recovery personally. I give them the best services I can in a non-judgmental way. I treat them the same when they are using as I do when they are not. I try to never be negative about anything that is going on in their life. I search for the positive and sometimes it makes me really tired. Some days are really sad and I just need a hug,” Fox said. “I have seen some people make some really dramatic changes in their lives. I have seen women give birth to healthy babies and get to keep them. For me even if it is one person that changes their life it is a success. And it has been much more than one person. I think the Maternal and Infant Recovery Clinic and the Stable Cradle program does a lot of good and I am really proud to be a part of it.”In terms of addressing the drug problem on a larger scale, Fox said there are no easy answers.“A good place to start is with families and communities sticking together. I feel like there has been a trend for quite a long time when someone exhibits all of these negative behaviors that you put a lot of distance between you and them,” she said. “While that can seem like a really good thing to do, I don’t know that it always is. It only adds to the hopelessness for the individual struggling with addiction. I know how difficult it is to deal with people who struggle with substance use disorders and sometimes it can even be dangerous. Often, addiction stems from trauma or inner turmoil of some kind that has not been addressed. The behaviors of individuals struggling with addiction often leads to families and friends stepping away from the individual, which adds another layer of trauma. If at all possible, it is helpful when the whole family can get help, which helps them positively support their loved one with the substance use disorder.”And, though it has been a long and bumpy journey, Fox has not given up on her family either.“My daughter is doing amazingly well. She just turned 30. She is no longer incarcerated and she is making huge steps to getting her life back on track. She is excited about starting her life over sober. I think my boys are going to follow suit. It takes time. This problem didn’t happen over night and it won’t be fixed overnight either.”last_img read more

14 years on, some soul-searching questions for Rane

first_imgFrom whether joining Congress was a mistake to his disinterest in Delhi as Rajya Sabha MP, and from slamming the Shiv Sena leadership to candid confessions, the release of former chief minister Narayan Rane’s autobiography turned into a look at his political career with the political bigwigs present on Friday hinting that it would have been better had he not joined Congress, 14 years ago. It began with Mr. Rane’s long-time friend and Union Minister Nitin Gadkari recollecting the former’s decision to quit the Sena and join Congress. “I knew it was a mistake. I even told you so. As a friend I even tried to pursuade you to not join the Congress. Had you not joined the Congress, the history of this State would have been different,” said Mr. Gadkari while releasing the autobiography titled No Holds Barred. NCP chief Sharad Pawar released the Marathi version titled Zanzavat.Mr. Rane had a brief stint as chief minister in 1999 after the first BJP-Sena coalition government assumed office in 1995. In 2005 Mr. Rane quit Sena following his differences with the then executive president Uddhav Thackeray. He then joined the Congress and was reportedly promised a chief ministership which never happened. In 2017 he quit Congress to float Maharashtra Swabhiman Party and was made Rajya Sabha MP from the BJP quota in 2018. His jump to the BJP is blamed at the possibility of probe by Enforcement Directorate (ED). Mr. Pawar, asked in jest whether it was a mistake to quit Sena and join Congress. “Now let him decide whether it was a mistake or grave mistake,” he said. Reminding him of the promises made to him by Congress, Mr Pawar said, “We have spent our lives there. One should only remember the promise. No one knows whether it will be fulfilled or not,” he said, taunting Congress. Mr. Rane, however did not respond to points raised about him joining the Congress, but recalled his memories of Sena founder late Bal Thackeray and slammed Uddhav Thackeray saying he received everything on a platter. “I received everything without demanding. But one thing is sure, I did not become the MP by my choice. I knew that my time was being wasted at a time when I wanted to do much in the State,” he said.last_img read more

10 months agoDyche’s bully reality: How Arsenal & Emery passed their latest test

first_imgTagsOpinionAbout the authorChris BeattieShare the loveHave your say Dyche’s bully reality: How Arsenal & Emery passed their latest testby Chris Beattie10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveCOMMENT: Intimidation? Stand over tactics? That is, literal stand over tactics? Oh no, not on this Arsenal. It may’ve worked in the past. But as Sean Dyche and his Burnley discovered on Saturday. Unai Emery and his players are a very different proposition today.They tried, did Burnley. They really did try. Going into the game, Dyche promised Emery and Arsenal a dose of reality. “Reality tactics”, he dubbed it.And the Clarets manager was good to his word. The visitors threw everything at Arsenal. Wrestling. Stamping. As Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang remarked after his two goal performance, “Yes, it was a physical battle, it was really, really hard”.But this lot are no southern softies. Not when you have players like Sead Kolasinac and Sokratis ready to fight your corner. Not when even your manager is ready to give the opposition an earful. But they did try, did Burnley.Not once. But twice. Twice Ashley Barnes did his best Sergio Ramos impression, wrestling Sokratis to the Emirates turf. The first time ended with Barnes having the Gunners defender in a headlock. That was only after he had stood over his marker. But Sokratis was never going to be intimidated. Indeed, it was his reaction to Barnes’ antics that helped the Clarets striker escape a booking.Barnes only received a short word from ref Kevin Friend – no doubt helped out by Sokratis, as he put an own arm around his shoulder before asking, almost laughing as he did, “what dya think ya doin'”? The pair would be at it again later in the game, this time in the middle of the pitch. But just as before, they broke up without Friend brandishing a card.Then it was Matteo Guendouzi’s turn to be tested. But even this 19 year-old from France wasn’t to be cowed. Barnes – again – was the instigator, stamping a prostrate Guendouzi square on his chest. Again, there was no action shown by Friend. And for all the complaints about diving from Dyche in the aftermath, Guendouzi’s reaction was more Roy Keane than Neymar. Just as Sokratis had previously, Guendouzi’s response went some way to Barnes avoiding punishment. That Dyche complained about diving from the home team was baffling given the spot fires sparked around the pitch by his No10.But perhaps he was still coming down after copping it from Emery at the final whistle. A team reflects it’s manager. And this one – like so many on the pitch – is no shrinking violet.To be fair, this wasn’t Emery’s fight. And there really was no need for the Arsenal manager to get involved. But he’d had enough. Enough of Dyche’s bellowing. Enough of his complaining. Grabbing Dyche’s arm, he let him know what he thought of his antics. The pair squared up. It wasn’t Barnes versus Sokratis. But Emery wasn’t going to turn the other cheek.On paper, Arsenal should always be defeating Burnley at the Emirates. And the 3-1 scoreline stuck to script. But the manner of how these three points were achieved tells us everything about today’s Arsenal.They’re not a nasty team. Nor an overly physical one. But there’s a presence about them. There’s a bit of steel in there. From Soka and Seo to the kid from Lorient. You’re not going to intimidate this lot. There’s enough heavy duty in there to allow attacking players like Aubameyang the room to do their thing.Gary Neville, the former Manchester United captain, has branded past Arsenal teams, the ones of Arsene Wenger, as “soft”: “Technically they were as good as anything we’ve seen in England in my time. But there are all kinds of attributes that make up a football side and they didn’t like it when the contest became physical.”You always felt you had a chance against them because you could get about them, bully them.”And you fancy Dyche went into Saturday’s trip with the same sentiment.But this is a very different Arsenal from the team of the past decade. And the manager is certainly a polar opposite to what Dyche had grown used to finding upon Burnley’s visits to North London.As those around the Pemier League are fast realising. Emery’s Arsenal can outplay you. And outfight you. Whether it’s on the pitch. Or by the touchline. You can’t intimidate this lot. Just as “reality” snapped back at Dyche on Saturday.Dyche & Emery having a disagreement at FT. #twitterclarets#UTCpic.twitter.com/6Bi28yhv4p— TurfCast (@TurfCastPodcast) December 22, 2018 last_img read more
