Facebook0Tweet0Pin0 Submitted by The City of LaceyHealth officials remind anglers, swimmers and pet owners to avoid lake algaeLong Lake is a popular swimming hole, located on Carpenter Road in Lacey.An algae bloom in Long Lake near Lacey that’s been lurking since late September has dissipated, and county health officials have lifted the toxic algae advisory at the popular lake. While the warning signs posted around Long Lake and at the City of Lacey’s Long Lake Park are now gone, county health officials remind people and pet owners to avoid any waters with visible algae.“Obviously our lakes are pretty quiet this time of year, but we want to remind people to steer clear of algae blooms if they’re a diehard swimmer, taking their dog for a swim or doing any fishing. Algae blooms are not just a summertime phenomenon,” said Art Starry, Director of the county’s Environmental Health Division.“We appreciate the county health department’s help with tracking this algae bloom and reminding residents to stay safe,” said Lacey Parks and Recreation Director Lori Flemm.While not all algae blooms are toxic, some algae can produce toxins that can harm the nervous system, the liver, the skin, and the stomach and intestines. Experts from the county’s Environmental Health Division recommend a few simple tips to help prevent illness from algae:Avoid swimming, wading, wind surfing and water-skiing in waters where algae blooms are present.Don’t drink untreated surface water.Keep pets and livestock out of waters with algae blooms.When fishing, catch-and-release is the safest practice. If you do eat your catch, clean any fish you catch thoroughly if you see algae blooms. Before eating, remove the internal organs, which may contain harmful algae toxins.Avoid areas of scum when boating and clean your boat thoroughly.For more information about toxic algae blooms and other water quality information, visit the Thurston County Environmental Health web pages at www.co.thurston.wa.us/health/ehadm/swimming/swimming_index.html.For more information about the City of Lacey, including Lacey’s parks and recreation programs, visit www.ci.lacey.wa.us.

MANDELLA DOUBLES DOWN IN SUNDAY’S WILSHIRERichard Mandella expressed cautious optimism about Moulin de Mougin and Indecise when they run in Sunday’s Grade III, $100,000 Wilshire Stakes for fillies and mares, 3 and up, at one mile on turf.Indecise was second in the restricted Wishing Well Stakes at about 6 ½ furlongs on the turf Feb. 8, while Moulin de Mougin was ninth breaking on the outside going a mile against males in the Thunder Road on April 4. It was her first start in seven months.The Wishing Well was run Feb. l8, and was the first race for Indecise in almost a year.“I haven’t seen the rest of the field so I don’t know how tough it is, but my two are pretty good in their own right,” Mandella said. “Moulin de Mougin has proven herself to be that good. The other mare is working her way up.”Mike Smith rides Moulin de Mougin, while Mandella protégé Flavien Prat pilots Indecise.“He was only 18 the first year he came to ride at Santa Anita, and he’s 22 now,” Mandella said of the up and coming Frenchman. “This is the fourth winter he’s spent with us, and each year, we hated to see him leave.“Now his visa is good for five years so he’ll be with us for the duration. He’s great kid and a real star in the making. I can’t take too much credit for his success. Anybody would want to ride him.”The Wilshire, the seventh race on an eight-race program: Moulin de Mougin, Mike Smith, 4-1; Thegirlinthatsong, Corey Nakatani, 8-1; $2,000 supplemental nomination Smoove It, Mario Gutierrez, 8-1; Blingismything, Tyler Baze, 9-2; Uzziel, Kent Desormeaux, 6-1; Sky Treasure, Joe Talamo, 6-1; Indecise, Flavien Prat, 9-2; and Birdlover, Rafael Bejarano, 5-2.

BAFFERT HAPPY WITH DRILLS BY DORTMUND, BAYERNBob Baffert was on Cloud Nine, literally and figuratively, Saturday morning after two ofhis star runners, unbeaten Santa Anita Derby winner Dortmund, and Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Bayern, worked at Santa Anita under regular rider Martin Garcia.Dortmund, in his final major drill for next Saturday’s 141st Kentucky Derby, worked six furlongs in company with Lady Bull in 1:13.60. Lady Bull was clocked in 1:15.40.Bayern and stablemate Cat Burglar worked six furlongs in company from the gate, each timed in a bullet 1:10.80.“I’m really happy with how they went,” Baffert said en route via air to Kentucky where tomorrow he will supervise a five furlong workout at Churchill Downs by Derby favorite American Pharoah, who will have Garcia aboard.“Dortmund just cruised around there. He’s pretty fit and doesn’t need much. He’ll gallop into the Derby.”Bayern, who has not raced since winning the Classic at Santa Anita last Nov. 1, likely will make his 2015 debut in the Grade II, $400,000 Alysheba Stakes at 1 1/16 miles on May 1, although the son of Offlee Wild is also nominated to the Grade II, $500,000 Churchill Downs Stakes at seven furlongs on May 2. Crack sprinter Private Zone is likely to run in that race.“He’ll probably run in the Alysheba,” Baffert said of Bayern.Also at Santa Anita on an overcast Saturday morning, Sunland Derby winner Firing Line, twice beaten a head by Dortmund, worked five furlongs with Gary Stevens up in 1:02.20.“I’m very happy,” said Simon Callaghan of Firing Line, a son of Line of David owned by Arnold Zetcher. “It was just to stretch his legs. He’ll get on the plane early tomorrow morning so we didn’t want to overdue it. He’s fit, looks good, everything seems ready.”Callaghan plans to leave for Kentucky on Tuesday.Reflecting on Firing Line’s two narrow defeats by Dortmund, in the Los Alamitos Futurity and the Robert B. Lewis Stakes, Callaghan said, “Our horse is doing very well; obviously, he’s run against very good company.“Dortmund won the (Santa Anita) Derby extremely well and I think our horse has progressed since then, so I think we’re going to Kentucky with a very good shot.”D’AMATO GOES FOR LAST TYCOON GOLD WITH DUOBack in the glory days of Army football, the Black Knights of the Hudson had thedynamic backfield duo of “Mr. Inside and Mr. Outside,” Felix (Doc) Blanchard and Glenn Davis.Phil D’Amato hopes for an equine version some 75 years later when he sends out Big John B from the No. 1 post position and Abbey Vale from the outside eight hole in today’s Grade III, $100,000 Last Tycoon Stakes for 3-year-olds and up at 1 ¼ miles on turf.Big John B, a 6-year-old gelded son of Hard Spun owned by Michael House, hasn’t raced since Nov. 1 when he finished ninth in the Breeders’ Cup Turf, having made the most of his outside No. 12 post position in the mile-and-a-half race.Abbey Vale, a 5-year-old Irish-bred son of Moss Vale owned by Andy Ellis, JR Riley Stables and Michael Sim, has won two of three starts in the U.S., each time coming from within shouting distance of the pacesetters.“I don’t think they’re going to hinder each other at all with their styles,” D’Amato said. “Abbey Vale might have a little more speed than Big John B, but it’s time to get him started. He signaled in his last two drills he’s ready to go.“Abbey Vale has always been highly thought of, so we’re going to give him a shot. He won pretty nicely the other day, so I think they’re both ready to go.”KENTUCKY DERBY GALA AT SANTA ANITA SATURDAY Fans can join the biggest Derby party west of Kentucky at Santa Anita next Saturday, May 2, a day filled with world-class racing, hat contests, mint juleps and live racing.Festivities include an Infield Beer-fest with live music from Seedless and a party in the Premium Gallop Out in the Club House East.

LONDON (AP):Aston Villa’s 28-year stay in the English top flight ended yesterday with a 1-0 loss at Manchester United, while Newcastle and Sunderland gave themselves hope of escaping the Premier League relegation zone by both winning 3-0.The threat of relegation ended some time ago for Chelsea, but an 11th loss of a feeble title defences was inflicted by Manchester City. Sergio Aguero’s hat-trick secured a 3-0 win that bolstered City’s position in the Champions League places.Relegation to the second-tier League Championship was confirmed for former European champions Villa in a season of turmoil that has seen the bottom-placed club collect only 16 points from 34 games. Marcus Rashford’s goal sealed Villa’s fate, while keeping United in touch with the top four.”It’s never nice to see it confirmed, but it’s been on the cards for a while,” Aston Villa defender Joleon Lescott told the BBC. “Now (that) it’s official, it’s a weight off people’s shoulders and we can go into the last four games with a bit of freedom and something to prove … and show the fans we still have a fight in us.”Villa have been in the Premier League since their inaugural season in 1992-93 and had been in the top flight in their previous guise for four years before that. Villa won the top tier in 1981 and followed it up by lifting the European Cup the following season, but were relegated in 1987.Villa, now owned by American businessman Randy Lerner, are likely to find it harder to make an instant return to the top division like they did in 1988.There has never been a worse time to be relegated from the Premier League. New television contracts kick in from next season, worth more than £8.3 billion ($12 billion) over three years. Teams are set to earn at least £100 million per season in TV and prize money.SLIDINGSCALEVilla are in line to receive around £65 million for finishing bottom in a sliding scale that sees the champions earn around £100 million.Newcastle and Sunderland are both scrapping to avoid missing out on the larger windfall from next season.Sunderland moved one point from safety by winning at Norwich and they have a game in hand over the eastern England club, who are immediately outside of the relegation zone in 17th. Fabio Borini put Sunderland ahead from the penalty spot in the first half, while Jermaine Defoe and Duncan Watmore netted after the break.Newcastle are two points behind Sunderland after beating Swansea, and Rafa Benitez’s team also has a game in hand over Norwich. Jamaal Lascelles headed Newcastle ahead at the end of the first half and there were late goals from Moussa Sissoko and Andros Townsend.Yesterday’s focus at the top of the standings was on the scrap for the fourth Champions League spot.City followed up their midweek victory over Paris Saint-Germain, who secured a Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid, by completing a hat-trick of Premier League wins for the first time this season.Aguero’s first two goals completed counterattacks launched by Kevin De Bruyne. The third came from an 80th-minute penalty after Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois was dismissed for clipping Fernandinho.City provisionally climbed above Arsenal into third place. United are three points behind Arsenal in fifth place and could have to settle for a place in the second-tier Europa League.The focus returns to the title race in the coming days. Today, Leicester host West Ham and third-placed Arsenal take on Crystal Palace. Tottenham, who are seven points behind Leicester in second, are at Stoke tomorrow.Elsewhere yesterday, seventh-placed Southampton remained in contention for Europa League qualification after drawing 1-1 at Everton. Watford climbed to 12th place by winning 1-0 at West Bromwich Albion, thanks to goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes saving two penalties after Ben Watson’s goal.
LOST IN NEW MEXICO Guyana’s Revlon Lake will have his hands full tonight as he tries to take out the No. 1-seeded boxer in the Wray and Nephew 2016 Welterweight Contender competition, American DeMarcus ‘Chop Chop’ Corley at the Chinese Benevolent Association auditorium. The bout, which will be over five rounds, is scheduled to start at 9:30 p.m. and will be broadcast live on TVJ. In the preliminary round of the competition Lake, who has a 9-13-2 record, eked out a majority decision over Anthony Woods, who fights out of The Bahamas. Corley, whose record is now 44 wins, 27 losses and a draw, scored a unanimous decision over Iwan Azore, who is also from Guyana. Corley is one of the most accomplished boxers in the competition and his record shows him going up against world-renown fighters such as Floyd Mayweather and Zab Judah in the past. Although he lost to those boxers, the fact that he was able to compete with them says much for his capabilities. After defeating Azore here on March 16, he engaged in a World Boxing Council (WBC) Interim Latino Lightweight title bout against Adrian Estrella in New Mexico on April 16 over 12 rounds and lost by majority decision. Two judges voted for Estrella and the other judge saw the outcome as a draw. On his return to Jamaica on Monday night, he declared himself to be “in great condition and ready to go”. If he follows the pattern of his fight against Azore, he will be making himself a difficult target. In that fight, he moved a lot and Azore was not able to build up any concerted attacks. Corley is undoubtedly a smart fighter and knowing that he will be giving away weight – since he is a natural lightweight – he is not going to engage in much action at close range. Lake will therefore have no alternative but to go after his man ,and it will be intriguing to see what could be a chess-type boxing match unfold. Corley has 26 knockout victories to his credit, but against a heavier opponent he will quite likely be aiming to build up points round after round and go for a decision. It promises to be an intriguing battle of wills. The winner tonight not only moves on to be one of the last four boxers in the competition, but will be guaranteed one of the main prizes. The winner will take home the Welterweight Contender 2016 title belt and purse money of $2 million. The other finalist will earn $500,000, while the third-place boxer gets $250,000 and fourth place, $200,000.

A spate of home invasions on the Corentyne has left some residents living in fear as to when the armed men would strike again. Over the past days, several home were broken into and families terrorised by the armed bandits who demanded cash and jewellery. In addition to the robberies, villagers are receiving death threats after they were able to see the face of at least one of the men who carried out the attacks. One man told Guyana Times that the bandits have been on the rampage in the Villages of Bush Lot, Nurney and Friendship – all on the Corentyne coast.One man died after he was shot in his Bush Lot home after bandits invaded and demanded money. The man died days after the shooting but to date, no arrests were made by the Police.Residents have expressed fear after three masked armed men turned up at their homes. At a popular bar at Bush Lot, bandits broke in and terrorised the family after which they escaped with cash and jewellery.Three weeks ago, three men removed five louver panes from a bedroom window of a house at Friendship. After gaining entry into the house, they held the owner at gunpoint and moved into a bedroom where they demanded the female occupant to hand over the cash and jewellery.The men, who were all masked, reportedly left after they collected $400,000 in cash and a further $200,000 worth in jewellery.Residents at Nurney have also reported that they were attempts to break into homes kin the community within the past two weeks.Last Thursday, a pensioner got up to use the washroom at about 02:00h and reportedly saw a hand coming from the roof of his house.The bandits had ripped open the roof to gain entry to the one flat concrete house. According to the pensioner, he was bound after which the men asked for the money from the rice he recently reaped.The man said he was beaten and a piece of cloth was stuffed into his mouth making it impossible for him to raise an alarm. The bandits took the $4000 he had in his home at the time.After some time, they dragged him onto the street and lifted him over his neighbours fence and told him to call out the neighbour.When the neighbour was called out, one of the men stood by the door but the neighbour who is a rice framer peeped through a window and called the Police.Meanwhile, as the men went to another neighbour who is a cash crop farmer, he was able to injure one of the bandits with a cutlass.The injured man repeatedly ordered his colleague carrying the firearm to shoot the farmer and in complying, he discharged a round in his direction. The Police arrived and heard two other gunshots a short distance away.There are reports that following that incident, the neighbour who was shot was receiving death threats.Divisional Commander, Assistant Commissioner Clifton Hicken told Guyana Times that several persons are in custody assisting with investigations into an incident at Friendship on Thursday.Meanwhile, he said in that attack, no firearms were used, only cutlasses. The situation remains tense in the villages on Bush Lot Farm, Bush Lot, Nuney, Friendship and sections of Kildonan.
Criminal charges against Ministers…expresses alarm over info leaks at SOCUThe Transparency Institute of Guyana Incorporated (TIGI) on Monday said that it remained concerned about the nullification of charges by the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) and perceived witch-hunting by law enforcement agencies.TIGI expressed the belief that a legal challenge could be mounted against the DPP’s discontinuance of the criminal charges which the parliamentary Opposition had filed against several Government Ministers.“TIGI believes that any current or former Government official or employee who mismanaged or misappropriated State resources should be held accountable and where appropriate be made to make amends inclusive of returning what was taken or given away.”According to TIGI, as long as there is merit in the matters identified, alternative motives are of little importance.In April, public misconduct charges were filed against Finance Minister Winston Jordan; Public Infrastructure Minister David Patterson; and Public Service Minister, Dr Rupert Roopnaraine by former Attorney General Anil Nandlall as the attorney, and Opposition Member of Parliament (MP) Juan Edghill as an applicant.They alleged a breach of the Procurement Act in relation to the expenditure of $906 million in public funds to a private company, Homestretch Development Inc, for construction of the controversial D’Urban Park Project, which has, for some time now, been a contentious issue.Jordan and Patterson were jointly charged with misconduct and abuse of public trust for having allegedly authorised the payment, while Dr Roopnaraine, who was a director of the company, was charged with alleged misconduct and the abuse of public trust for having received, in his capacity as director, the $906 million in public funds while serving as Minister.The charges were discontinued, just days after the dismissal of another set of charges against Government Ministers Volda Lawrence and Dr George Norton over the sole-sourcing of more than $600 million in drugs and other pharmaceuticals and the rental of a house in Sussex Street to be used as a drug bond at a cost of $12 million monthly.The DPP’s grounds for dismissing the charges had included the failure to file a police report. But Nandlall had affirmed that there was nothing in the law prohibiting the filing of charges without the Police being alerted and according to TIGI, it has also found nothing to justify the DPP’s decision.“There are legitimate questions to be answered in relation to the Sussex Street pharmaceutical bond deal, procurement in the health sector and the D’Urban Park Project. TIGI agrees that the proper procedures must be followed in all legal matters. However, there are unanswered questions about the path taken by the DPP to disallow the charges against current Ministers of Government,” TIGI declared.“We have also been unable to verify that such provisions are made in the law, notwithstanding the powers of the DPP articulated in Section 187 of the Constitution. We, therefore, believe that the decision of the DPP can and should be challenged in court. Such a challenge will clarify the appropriate procedure and serve as a guide for future actions.”Witch-huntingThe group went on to express concern over the perception of witch-hunting hanging over the heads of the State Assets Recovery Agency (SARA) and the Special Organised Crime Unit (SOCU). This perception has remained prominent especially as, to the public’s knowledge, the Agency has never investigated members of the current Government.The group also pointed to the inappropriateness of the threats SARA executive Eric Phillips had issued against Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo in March of last year.“SARA’s mandate is too important for it to be compromised by any single individual,” TIGI indicated. “We are also floored by the fact that SARA was burglarised and wonder at the confidence this inspires in its international partners and in Guyanese.“SARA is in need of a clear and transparent policy on case selection and on the basis for deciding whether to pursue civil or criminal prosecution, and on the circumstances under which it will allow individuals to return assets and avoid prosecution.”When it comes to SOCU, TIGI expressed alarm over the headlines and apparent leaks concerning the arrests of former Government officials. According to the transparency body, SOCU must address these issues or it will continue to be seen as a tool used to embarrass the former Government.
