No Surprise Here: Another Wintry Mix Headed to Long Island

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Apparently Mother Nature has not heard our desperate pleas—or maybe she’s enjoying this winter onslaught a little too much. As has been the norm this winter, another storm is barreling toward Long Island, bringing with it a wintry mix of snow, sleet, and freezing rain. (Sigh.)Snow will begin falling around 4 p.m. Sunday and could hang around until Monday morning, forecasters said. Nassau and Suffolk counties could see 1 to 2 inches of snow in most areas, with the North Shore potentially tallying an extra inch. Basically, Sunday could be another messy day on the Island despite minimal accumulation. And then there’s the matter of the deep freeze that has enveloped the Island for several weeks. The forecast calls for a high of 32 degrees Sunday, but the wind chill could make it feel like 15 degrees, the weather service said. If the Island is lucky, the mercury could rise to a high of 37 on Monday, before plummeting into the teens in the evening. And don’t look now, but warmer temperatures are on the horizon.Meteorologists are already predicting a high of 47 on Wednesday, with rain also in the forecast. Unfortunately the brief warm spell could end Friday, when the mercury is expected to drop below freezing once again.On the bright side, at least this isn’t Boston.

Los Blancos are currently in negotiations with Jose Mourinho’s side over a double deal for Gareth Bale and Sergio Reguilon, with the former on loan and the latter on a €40m transfer. Alli was initially linked with a switch to the Spanish capital as part of the deal to bring Bale back to North London, however, Real Madrid are not considering any type of offer for the England star. One of the primary reasons for Real Madrid declining to enter negotiations for Alli, are his salary demands countering against their continued contributions to Bale’s contract.Advertisementcenter_img Read Also: Messi, Ronaldo missing from Champions League awards shortlist Rumours are starkly contradictory over how much of Bale’s salary Real Madrid will pay after his move back to the Premier League, with estimates ranging from 50% to zero.

Yorkshire golfer is England Golf’s Volunteer of the Year

first_img15 Mar 2017 Yorkshire golfer is England Golf’s Volunteer of the Year Yorkshire golfer Jenny Davies, who devotes countless hours to junior golf, has been honoured with England Golf’s Volunteer of the Year Award. Jenny, the junior organiser at Bondhay Golf Club, was presented with the award at last night’s England Golf Awards at Lord’s. The runner-up was Simon Bacon of Radcliffe-on-Trent Golf Club, Nottinghamshire. The Awards shone the spotlight on great moments and achievement at all levels of English golf and Jenny was honoured alongside Olympic champion Justin Rose, Masters champion Danny Willett and Solheim Cup player Charley Hull, as well as other players and heroes from the grass roots game.  “I’m part of a phenomenal team and I’m accepting this for all volunteers,” said Jenny, who is featured in a specially filmed video. “It’s the strength of volunteers which makes golf such a great sport.” Jenny was a founder member when Bondhay opened 25 years ago and, although she likes to keep a low profile, she volunteers widely in the club and is also the vice-chairman.   Her passion is for the junior section, which she revived four years ago, using her skills from a 40-year career as a PE teacher – and her enthusiasm for family golf. When Jenny first joined the club she involved her daughters, Jo and Becky; now Becky and her husband, Justin, are the club professionals and closely involved with the juniors. Jenny’s enthusiasm, coupled with support from other members, has created a section which has about 30 members playing on the main course and a flourishing group of beginners on the par three course. “There’s so much satisfaction is seeing the development of skills and also the growing confidence and ability to mix with people. It’s fantastic to be able to witness that,” said Jenny. The youngsters get excellent opportunities, both at home and away. Masters champion Danny Willett was a member of the club as a junior and has worked with Bondhay and two other local clubs to run Wee Willetts, offering a par three golf tour to youngsters without handicaps. Willett attends an annual presentation, most recently turning up in his green jacket and accompanied by Sky, BBC and ITV – to the delight of the youngsters. Bondhay is also one of six Dukeries clubs which play off in a competition for juniors with handicaps.  At home, one of the highlights of the year is Junior Week, featuring five days of competition, with each main course event mirrored on the par three course. But Jenny doesn’t just focus on the juniors – she introduces their parents to golf as well and provides time for the adults to play at the end of junior competitions. Bonday Ladies’ Captain Pat Crabtree sums up: “She’s wonderful, it’s not just the juniors, it’s the whole club.” Click here to read more about the England Golf Awards Jenny Davies receives her award from England Golf Chairman Graham Yates (Image © Leaderboard Photography).last_img read more

Messy democracy

first_imgSome folks in Chatsworth saw the list of candidates on Saturday’s neighborhood council elections as a threat to the burgeoning democracy in the community. A local private school, Sierra Canyon School, stacked the ballot with a slate of six of its own employees and even more supporters. While this is strictly legal – the council’s bylaws don’t ban slates – it seems wrong, like it will create an imbalance on the council of 21 stakeholders in the neighborhood. And no doubt the new members of the council, when they are certified, will change its dynamics, and maybe even push their school’s interests, zoning changes and whatnot, before other things. However, the worriers have got it all wrong. This election is not a sign of trouble, but one that democracy – hairy warts and all – needs greater public participation to grow strong and healthy in Chatsworth. In an ideal world, a newborn democracy would work perfectly. Elections would be well-organized and fairly represent the diversity of the electorate. Candidates would be free from bias and be working solely for the common welfare. Everyone eligible would vote their conscience, and all would be well in the world. But as we know from centuries of trial and error, it doesn’t work that way. Democracy is chaotic, particularly in its infancy, and sometimes falls into the hands of special interests. Slates arise to push agendas. They in turn spark other slates and interests to keep them in check, and so on and so forth. That is what will likely happen in Chatsworth. If enough stakeholders think the new makeup of the council stinks, they may be so moved to get involved. And the neighborhood council will be richer for it. In fact, the growing neighborhood council movement in Los Angeles should be so lucky if every council found itself with stakeholders clamoring to join the advisory panels. Sure, this brand of grass-roots, participatory democracy might be a tumultuous mess – but it’s a beautiful one that works. As Winston Churchill so accurately described it: “Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all the others that have been tried.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Weekcenter_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
