first_imgTHE Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board (TTCB) and the Queen’s Park Cricket Club (QPCC) have launched a joint investigation into the washout of the fourth Test between West Indies and India.The Windies were 62-2 in their first innings when heavy rain in Port of Spain on the island of Trinidad cut short play on day one at the Queen’s Park Oval.Despite sunshine and blue skies for the four following days, the outfield retained too much water for the pitch to be playable, with West Indies losing the series 2-0.As a result, India missed out on the 3-0 win needed to retain their place at the top of the International Cricket Council Test rankings, with Pakistan displacing them.The TTCB and QPCC will probe the circumstances that led to the lack of play, with the aim of avoiding a repeat in the future.“As hosts, the Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board (TTCB) and QPCC regret that limited play was possible in the fourth Test match between WI and India at the Queen’s Park Oval,” a statement from TTCB president Azim Bassarath read.“We have jointly launched an investigation to determine what occurred with a view to remedying the situation so that this does not occur in the future. “Once this has been done it will be presented to the WICB (West Indies Cricket Board). ”( read more

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisALPENA, Mich. — Over the past four weeks, 22 participants from 10 different counties in Michigan have prepared to become correctional officers. They’ve learned correctional law, ethics, stress management, and subject control among other things.Instructor Larry Thomson says that these students are now ready to enter any jail in the state and do the job. “I believe these students that graduated today are more than ready to go into the jails of their employment and do the job,” he said. “Certainly, we learn everyday. If there is a day that goes by we don’t learn something, then we probably haven’t done our job, but I’m very confident confident that these 22 young people will go out and do the job that’s expected of them.”Initially, the academy had been postponed due to COVID–19 concerns, and extra precautions were taken. Graduate of the academy and member of the Kalkaska County Sheriff’s Department Kayla Varney says that made learning a little different. “I don’t think it affected us too bad,” she said. “It was different. It was weird to mask up or glove up all the time. That was definitely different.”Now that they’ve completed the academy, these graduates are now able to work at any jail in the state. There were two graduates from Alpena County, one from Presque Isle and one from Montmorency.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: alpena community collegeContinue ReadingPrevious Enbridge responds regarding temporary restraining orderNext Health department warns of possible coronavirus exposure at a party in Alpena Countylast_img read more
