A Year Of Classic Photographs From Dorn’s

first_imgWith its third annual calendar, Wheels & Wings, Dorn’s Classic Images (DCI) selected photographs that capture the Two River area’s good old days of planes, wagons, skates, classic autos, bikes and trolleys. The calendar has two “front” covers, both of them featuring shots of Red Bank Airport, which was actually in New Shrewsbury—now called Tinton Falls.Kathy Dorn Severini said, “Everyone seems to have a story about working at or flying out of the airport or dining at the Airport Inn next door. So the calendar’s proving to be very popular. I’m on one of the covers with my mom and dad, back in 1971, when the Dorn’s Tripacer (in the background) was the last plane to fly out of the airport on the field’s final day of operation.”The calendar includes memorable shots from its 10,000-image archive, of Red Bank, Fair Haven, Rumson, Highlands, Atlantic Highlands, Little Silver, Oceanport, Sea Bright, Long Branch, and Asbury Park. “We don’t always know the identity of all the persons depicted in the photos, but every year our customers get the satisfaction of recognizing friends and relatives and providing us with names,” says George Severini co-archivist with his wife Kathy and the calendar’s designer. He adds that, “This year, I again included more than one photo per month. There are so many beautiful photos to choose from.”“We’re proud that our calendar publication has become a tradition around the holidays. For six years our photos were featured in the Prown’s calendar as well as our independent version for the past three years. David Prown has always been a big civic booster for the area, and though he is not publishing his own calendar with Dorn’s images this year, he will be selling the calendars at his new location, Prown’s Doors and Windows, in Middletown,” Severini said.The calendars, which retail for $10, are available directly from DCI in Fair Haven and through the DCI Facebook page and on at They are also available at: Sickles Market, Little Silver; Bain’s Hardware, Sea Bright; Red Bank FrameWorks; Renaissance, Atlantic Highlands; Fair Haven Hardware, Fair Haven; New Corner Restaurant, Red Bank; and Monmouth Museum’s Holiday Boutique on the Brookdale Community College Lincroft campus.last_img read more

Dacres plans double at Nationals

first_imgEncouraged by good early form, Fedrick Dacres is considering a throws double at the National Senior Championship in June. Speaking on Saturday at the first JAAA All Comers meet of the season, Dacres says he intends to contest both the discus and the shot put at Nationals. A national record holder in the discus, the 23 year old University of the West Indies student has made progress in the shot including a reported mark of 21.49m. “Well for me, shot put is always fun, so I don’t take it as seriously, but if I can do it, I will”, he said to explain that the discus is his primary event. “I’m doing it to get the marks and everything”, he elaborated, “but I just don’t take it as serious as the disc.” Asked about a possible throws double at Nationals, the 2015 Pan-American Games discus champion replied, “I will do it at the Nationals because since I was young I’ve been doing it, so why stop doing it now when it hasn’t hampered me in any way?” “I’m going to see if I can make it for both”, he forwarded. Few successfully double at the global level but Holland’s Rutger Smith did place third in both discus and shot at the 2007 World Championships. Dacres promises that the Nationals will feature great competition in the throws. “It’s going to be very hot overall”, he predicted, “because you have shot, I can compete with the big man a bit so I’ll try to push him.” The ‘big man’ he referred to is 2015 World Championship shot put bronze medallist O’Dayne Richards. Regarding the discus throw, he said, “I think we have, you know, six guys who can get over 60. Dacres extended the national record in the disc to 68.88m at Excelsior High School earlier this year. He also expects great things from the lady throwers, led by Danielle Dodd and Kellion Knibb. Dodd and Knibb, both 2016 Olympians, have already set national records in the shot and discus respectively this season.last_img read more

Expanding areas of Ohio suffering from hot, dry conditions

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Mike Lutmer, Warren Co.We are very, very dry. The corn is rolled at the moment and the beans are starting to wilt. I am pretty concerned. Out in Hillsboro it has been wet. We had a two-inch rain where we farm over there and then another three inches within seven to 10 days. Here in the past month we haven’t even had a half-inch — maybe two tenths. We got a sprinkle Friday or Saturday but not enough to do anything. The ground is cracking really badly. The beans are still green and blooming but they are not putting anything in the pods.Last week the corn didn’t look too bad yet but we are starting to get some tip-back already. If we would get a rain this week it would help immensely. There is a 60% chance for tomorrow afternoon. I am not holding my breath but I hope we get it.If you go over to the Ohio-Indiana line the crops over there look phenomenal, but this area here in Warren, a little bit of Butler and some of Clinton counties is really dry. The rain keeps going north or south of us.The hay I am raking now is pretty thin. I would like to see another 10 inches of growth on it but it had already bloomed. The hay quality has been very good, there is just not a lot of it. We are on the tail end of second cutting now so we’ll see what happens.Somebody in Warren County near the Clinton County line had 60 acres of soybeans that had Palmer amaranth really bad and they had to bush hog it all. I don’t know how they got it. I have heard about problems in Ohio with that but not around here.For the rest of this week’s droughty reports click here.last_img read more

PM Launches Project to Assist Youth in Majesty Gardens

first_imgSeveral unemployed young persons from Majesty Gardens in South West St. Andrew are to benefit from the implementation of a training and income generating initiative, valued at just under $12 million.Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Portia Simpson Miller, on Tuesday, May 14, launched the ‘Income Generating Opportunities for Unemployed Young People through Linkages with Established Micro, Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (MSMEs)’ project, at the St. Andrew Settlement in Majesty Gardens, Kingston.The Jamaica Exporters’ Association (JEA), in collaboration with the St. Andrew Settlement, will execute the project, which is being sponsored by the Jamaica Social Investment Fund (JSIF), with funding support from the European Union Poverty Reduction Programme (PRP).The Prime Minister encouraged beneficiaries to take full advantage of the opportunities for self development. She told them that through participation in the project, they will be embarking on a path that could change their lives forever.“Not long from now, I want to hear of exporters graduating from this programme,” Mrs. Simpson Miller told the participants.She urged them to pay attention to the training and never give up, no matter how difficult it gets.“You are on a path and you are destined for success. No matter what, no matter how frustrating it might become, continue your programme and ensure you graduate. It is critical. It is about self development. You must be able to stand tall and shoulder to shoulder with people anywhere in the world,” the Prime Minister added.The project will provide vocational training and internships for persons between the ages of 18 and 35 in areas such as creative craft from recyclable materials, and traditional craft; dressmaking; tailoring; crochet making and design; woodwork and carpentry; and jewellery making.The beneficiaries will also be exposed to business readiness training, which include basic accounting and record keeping, marketing and sales, inventory management as well as basic computer applications, to equip them to carry out basic research and communication on the internet. They will also receive training in business communication, office deportment and etiquette skills.Managing Director of JSIF, Scarlette Gillings, said the project is expected to be implemented over a five-month period.In the meantime, General Manager of the JEA, Jean Smith, said the objective of the project is to provide support for young people in Majesty Gardens.“We anticipate that these beneficiaries, through the empowerment tools and the programmes that will be provided, will be able to contribute in a more meaningful way to the development of their families and to their communities and also to the wider society, both in terms of the Industrial community here on Spanish Town Road and to the wider Jamaica,” she said.The original target number was 25 young persons. However, JEA President, Andrew Collins, informed that this target has already been exceeded, explaining that in several instances the training sessions have close to 50 persons.“This speaks to the desire of our young people to acquire income generating knowledge and skills, which can make them workplace ready or which can be used to become young entrepreneurs,” Mr. Collins said.“We are convinced that at the end of the programme we will have some beneficiaries entering the export sector, either as entrepreneurs or through employment in existing export companies,” he said.Contact: Andrea Brahamlast_img read more

Wont apologise for honest opinion

first_imgMumbai: Taapsee Pannu has said that she will not apologise for her “double filter” comment about Kangana Ranaut, for which she has faced flak from the latter’s sister and spokesperson Rangoli Chandel. The whole argument started when Kangana’s sister Rangoli Chandel attacked Taapsee on Twitter. “Kuch log Kangana ko copy kar ke he apni dukaan chalate hain, magar pls note, they never acknowledge her, not even a mention of her name in praising the trailer. Last I heard, Taapsee ji said Kangana needs a double filter, and Tapsee ji you need to stop being a sasti copy,” Rangoli tweeted in the reply. Also Read – I have personal ambitions now: Priyanka”Seriously, I will not apologies for my honest opinion. I did not know that she has a patent on curly hair because I born with curly hair, and my parents are responsible for that. So, I cannot apologies for that either. Rest, I do not know what else I have copied,” said Taapsee, further adding: “However, if I am a copy of a good actor like her (Kangana) – and I always maintain that she is a good actor – I take it as a compliment. I am also called ‘sasti’ (cheap). Yes, I am not the highest-paid actor, so that way you can call me ‘sasti’.”last_img read more
