Email* SIGN UP Italy’s Sara Morganti has been voted the International Paralympic Committee’s best female Allianz Athlete of the Month for August following her incredible performance at the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games™ in Normandy (FRA).The Tuscany-born Para-Equestrian Dressage rider scored an outstanding Freestyle Grade 1a gold medal with her mare Royal Delight ahead of British Paralympic and reigning world champion Sophie Christiansen and Singapore’s most-decorated Paralympic athlete Laurentia Tan.Morganti, who also won Individual Grade 1a silver at the Games in Normandy, beat five champions to the top spot in the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) poll from the worlds of canoeing, athletics, swimming and sailing following a bumper month of global para-sport.Since her international début at the first FEI European Para-Dressage Championships in 2009 in Kristiansand (NOR), where she won Freestyle bronze with chestnut stallion Dollaro de Villanova, Morganti has gone on with Royal Delight to secure Freestyle bronze at both the 2011 Championships in Moorsele (BEL) and the JYSK FEI European Para-Dressage Championships 2013 in Herning (DEN). Since coming fourth at the London 2012 Paralympic Games in Greenwich Park, where her cherished nine-year-old mare was the youngest horse to compete, she has been trying to edge past her highly experienced rivals.With over 40 per cent of the votes, Morganti said: “I’m so happy that so many have voted for me – it’s incredible. The support of all these people will be an additional reason to focus on doing the best I can every single day. Before the Games in Normandy my dream was to qualify for Rio 2016, but after winning two medals there my dream is now to win a Paralympic medal. Obviously Royal Delight will have an extra portion of carrots for this new fantastic achievement!”Pole positionGreat Britain’s Jeannette Chippington (GBR), second in the IPC poll, was crowned a seven-time para-canoe world champion with two more titles at the 2014 ICF Canoe World Championships in Moscow (RUS), despite only taking up canoeing in 2012.Teresa Perales (ESP), voted third, won a staggering four gold medals at the 2014 IPC Swimming Championships in Eindhoven (NED), with Manuela Schaer (SUI) and Margarita Goncharova (RUS), coming fourth and fifth after each achieving four golds at the 2014 IPC Athletics European Championships in Swansea (GBR). Liesl Tesch (AUS) placed sixth in the IPC poll after scoring her first-ever world title with her partner Daniel Fitzgibbon at the 2014 IFDS Combined Sailing World Championships in Halifax (CAN).Lee Pearson, the ten-time Paralympic Games gold medallist in Grade 1b, who scored triple gold at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games™ 2014 in Normandy (FRA), and helped to secure Great Britain’s team spot at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games, was shortlisted for the best male Allianz Athlete of the Month for August, but was pipped to the post by the Ukraine’s Yevheniy Bohodayko who won seven gold medals at the 2014 IPC Swimming European Championships.The nominations for the Allianz Athlete of the Month are compiled from submissions by National Paralympic Committees (NPCs) and International Federations (IFs), with voting open to the public.

first_imgThe ideas offered by Ness U. Patria about ancient Greek politics (Voice from the South, 10-16 July) are fascinating. But do they fit modern times? Bohuslaw, the boyfriend I found on Place Lux, says: “Plato does not mention pink suits. We are in the time of pink suits.” Not where I come from, but maybe it’s true down South. France is now pinksuit-tastic. There is even a hybrid Frenglish word for them – les Pipoles – meaning people who are famous for going to openings of things. The Pipoles get up close to stuff, at all those openings. Like the Italian über-floozie Carla Bruni, who is about to publish a book and gets cross if anyone compares her new find, Nicolas Sarkozy, with the skin-tucked and hair-implanted Italian prime minister. “He [Silvio Berlusconi] is not a politician,” she writes in her new book. “Each to his own!” In spring there was a banlieu-style riot when the police tried to enforce some minor trading rule. We were told planning laws are also a joke in Milan. This is Berlusconi’s hometown – his father was high up in a bank. It had a reputation which is in another smelly rubbish-bag I won’t open. Even in north-in-the-south Milan, Berlusconi is just part of a system so corrupt that it doesn’t really matter if he’s officially in charge or if it’s someone else, because no one really is, apart from people it’s not safe to mention. But they don’t seem to wear pink suits or figure in the gossip columns. Rein F. Deer is away. Carla says she “doesn’t feel good” since Silvio got back into power. So will Silvio face humiliation when he makes his next public kissing assault on political leaders and their better-looking wives? Carla says show-business and politics have much in common. “Politics, it consists of actions and symbols but nevertheless also has a lot to do with image,” she told Le Parisien. “And we both benefit from the interest and attention of the media.” The pink suits can really make a dif-ference, down South. Or can they? Take Sophia Loren, who is an über-pinksuit. She comes from somewhere near Naples and a few weeks ago publicly appealed for Berlusconi to clear away the 2,000 tonnes of rubbish in the region’s streets, especially in Pozzuoli, where she was born and grew up. Berlusconi took his whole cabinet to see Naples’s rubbish-mountains after he was re-elected in April. It was a national emergency, he said. Nothing much hap-pened. Sophia said what she said. Nothing much more happened. Naples’s rubbish has been an official national disaster for 14 years. Rubbish-disposal is big business and is openly in the hands of the Mafia. This is a dangerous black bag to open, so I won’t (Sophia didn’t). All this is baffling for visitors from the North. Last weekend Bohuslaw and I went to rich, chic Milan, Italy’s north-in-the-south. Paolo Sarpi, the guidebook said, was a part of town full of charming shops and a nice place to walk. It’s now known as Chinatown and full of Chinese sweat-shops, like the backstreets of Beijing. last_img read more

first_imgData from a new government report show that if all the structurally deficient bridges in the United States were placed end-to-end, it would take you 25 hours driving 60 miles per hour to cross them.  That’s like driving the 1,500 miles between Boston and Miami.  And it’s a problem that’s close to home.An analysis of the 2013 National Bridge Inventory database released this month by the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) shows cars, trucks and school buses cross Vermont’s 251 structurally compromised bridges 344,436 times every day. The problem could get a lot worse, the chief economist for the American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) says, as states across the nation face a slowdown in reimbursements for already approved federal-aid highway projects in August. Without congressional action, Dr. Alison Premo Black says there will be no Highway Trust Fund support for any new road, bridge, or public transportation projects in any state during FY 2015, which begins October 1.”Letting the Highway Trust Fund investment dry up would have a devastating impact on bridge repairs,” Black says, noting the trust fund supports an average $59.6 million annually in Vermont bridge work.  “It would set back bridge improvements for years.””The bridge problem sits squarely on the backs of our elected officials,” Black says.  “The state transportation department can’t just wave a magic wand and make the problem go away.  It takes committed investment by our legislators.  Members of Congress need to come to grips with that.  Some of our most heavily travelled bridges were built in the 1930s.  Most are more than 40 years old.”Bridge decks and support structures are regularly inspected by the state transportation departments for deterioration and are rated on a scale of zero to nine—nine being “excellent” condition.  A bridge is classified as structurally deficient and in need of repair if its overall rating is four or below.While these bridges may not be imminently unsafe, ARTBA suggests they be sign posted so the public knows they have structural deficiencies that need repair.The ARTBA analysis of the bridge data supplied by the states to the USDOT found:Vermont ranks 43rd nationally in its number of structurally deficient bridges—251.Vermont ranks 31st in the percentage of its bridges that are classified as structurally deficient—9.0%.A list of the 10 structurally deficient bridges in Vermont that carry the most traffic daily is available in the “Economics” section of is external).Established in 1902, ARTBA is the “consensus voice” of the U.S. transportation design and construction industry in the Nation’s Capital.SOURCE WASHINGTON, April 24, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — American Road & Transportation Builders Associationlast_img read more

first_imgVermont Gas Systems Inc,by John Herrick is external) Regulators want to reopen an approved permit for a natural gas pipeline project through Addison County due to an escalation in cost estimates. The Public Service Board will seek a remand from the Vermont Supreme Court for a state permit it approved in December for a 41-mile pipeline from Colchester to Middlebury. The permit is also under appeal by a Monkton landowner.The board said the latest cost estimate to build the project — $154 million, up from the original $86 million — is sufficiently large to warrant further investigation. The Department of Public Service, which represent ratepayers, also wants to reconsider the costs and benefits of the pipeline.The board plans to file the request for a second remand with the high court Friday, according to last week’s order. The board could revoke, change or leave untouched the project’s permit. In the order, the board denied requests by landowners to halt constructionVermont Gas spokeswoman Beth Parent said the company supports the board’s decision to request a remand.Site work being done last fall in Williston for the VGS pipeline. VBM photoOn July 2, Vermont Gas announced a 40 percent cost increase(link is external) to build the pipeline. Pipeline opponents called on regulators to reconsider the company’s state permit, aiming to alter the project or stop it altogether. They argue that air source heat pumps will reduce residential demand for natural gas. They also cast doubt on the credibility of the company’s cost estimates.The Public Service Board then received a remand from the state Supreme Court and held a hearing on the case, but was not convinced by opponents. On Oct.10, the board decided the project was still good for the state, leaving the permit unchanged in light of the cost increase. The Department of Public Service said at the time the project was still a good deal(link is external) for the state.On December 19, the company announced a 27 percent increase(link is external) in the cost of the project to a total of $154 million. Construction costs (link is external)were the principal reason for the increase, and the company still has contracts out to bid at a time when construction is in high demand, it said.The company says its latest cost estimates use different cost categories than previous estimates. The company says it is impossible to directly compare certain original and current budget items. Parent said the change was made because the company is now using industry standard cost-estimate methods.Pipeline opponents again want the project to be reconsidered. They argue heat pumps have continued to grow and oil prices have dropped — together offsetting potential customers and therefore chipping away at the benefits of the project. They also are concerned the cost estimates need greater scrutiny. The Department of Public Service wants to take a closer look now at the costs and benefits of the project.Vermont Gas, argues the project is still a win for the state. Since the last remand, the company released a report detailing hundreds of jobs associated with the project. It has also said that, despite low oil prices, the project still generates nearly $175 million in energy savings over 20 years.The company also said the board could review the new cost estimates without a remand.PHOTO: Members of the Vermont Public Service Board, from left Margaret Cheney, James Volz and John Burke.

first_imgThe Nelson Selects came out on the short end of a 3-2 score in the U12 Girl’s bronze medal game of the 13th annual Little Bear Youth Soccer Tournament Sunday in Revelstoke.Nelson lost to the host Revelstoke squad by the single goal in the medal round. The tournament was the first time this season the Selects played in an eight-vs-eight event. Normally the squad plays 11-a-side so the players needed to adjust to net size and different positions. Still the squad, led by the offensive showing of Emily Graeme, Amy Hodgson, Emma Wheeldon and Laurel Halleran, played well against much older teams. Nelson finished the tournament with 1-2-1 record, with the highlight of the weekend coming against Canmore Blacks. The Selects scored a 1-1 draw against the silver medal winners from Alberta. Nelson defeated Canmore Reds before losing to Kootenay South 3-1. Graeme paced the Selects attack with four goals while Hodgson added a pair. Wheeldon and Halleran each scored singles. Emma Gregorich was solid between the pipes all weekend for the Selects. The Revelstoke tournament is the final Rep event of the season. However, the future looks bright for this team — which plays three 10-year-olds on the field — as most of the squad is back for another season.last_img read more

first_imgTo the Beaver Valley Nitehawks, it’s not what you do in the first three months of the season it’s what you do in the last three months.The defending Kootenay International Junior Hockey League champions won for the ninth consecutive time by posting a 4-2 decision over Murdoch rivals Nelson Leafs Tuesday at the Hawks Nest in Fruitvale.The win opens a four-point gap in the Murdoch Division for Beaver Valley over second-place Nelson.Former Leaf Walker Sidoni provided the offence for Beaver Valley, scoring twice and adding two assists to lead the Hawks.
