first_imgPhoto: PxHereJAMESTOWN – Big changes are coming to Jamestown’s Labor Day Festival.Jamestown Mayor Eddie Sundquist tells WNYNewsNow as part of the city’s COVID-19 Financial Restructuring Plan, funding for festivals and special events have been put on hold.In a message to members of the City’s Labor Day Committee, the Mayor said instead of a large elaborate festival this year, officials will likely be working to host a scaled down gathering.“With the addition of COVID-19 making large gatherings difficult, and a large financial strain on the City from lost revenue, we have decided to forgo a large festival this year,” said Sundquist. “However, I want to let the committee know that I am determined to celebrate the men and women of labor in the Jamestown community.” The Mayor says even though this September’s celebration will be much smaller and “muted” then years past, the City still plans to honor those in the labor force.“Although this year may have to be a much smaller and muted ceremony, we will still honor the sacrifices people have made in pursuit of better working conditions and a better life, here in the City of Jamestown,” explained Sundquist. “As we get closer to Labor Day 2020, we will reach back out and have folks come together to talk about what a smaller celebration may look like.”Several other big community events scheduled for this summer have been canceled due to COVID-19 gathering restrictions, including the National Comedy Center’s Lucille Ball Comedy Festival and the Chautauqua County Fair.According to New York State’s phased reopening plan, large scale events and gathering will likely not be permitted until phase four, which is expected to occur in early July.

first_imgLEG-SPINNER Jeffrey Vandersay took 6 for 47 in the final innings to lead Sri Lanka A to victory in Dambulla. West Indies A were set a target of 333 but with no one even managing a fifty, the hosts wrapped up a 138-run victory, and with it the series 2-1.The chase had begun positively with Kieran Powell, who had briefly flirted with a career in baseball, back at the top of the order and kicking things off with a 41-ball 44. West Indies A were 124 for 3 – chugging along at a run-rate just under four – when Vandersay blitzed through their middle order to bowl them out for 194.He took two wickets in the 48th over, including that of captain and top-scorer Shamarh Brooks for 46, handed the opposition five of their six single-digit scores and completed his ninth five-for in 29 first-class matches.While the bowling they faced was good, West Indies A would rue the fact that they collapsed from reasonably strong positions. In the first innings they had Shimron Hetmyer – 94 off 91 balls, with 17 fours – and Brooks – 54 off 100 balls – doing well before they lost eight wickets for 104 runs to concede a lead of 75. In the second innings, West Indies lost seven wickets for 70 runs to concede the match.Another measure of where West Indies A lost the match lay in the number of partnerships over 50. There were eight overall – and they contributed only two of them.Meanwhile, Sri Lanka A had begun the game with an agenda-setting 133-run stand between openers Kusal Perera (69) and Sandun Weerakkody (79) in the first innings. It was key to building a total of 318.Then fast bowler Kasun Madushanka and left-arm wrist-spinner Lakshan Sandakan took three wickets each and left-arm seamer Lahiru Gamage chipped in with two to bowl West Indies A out for 243. All three were picked in Sri Lanka’s Test squad to play against Zimbabwe in Harare next Saturday.Sri Lanka A swelled a lead of 75 to match-and-series-winning proportions in their second innings with Weerakkody smacking 48 off 36 balls and Asela Gunaratne collecting 69 off 126 balls. Rahkeem Cornwall was the only opposition they faced, the off-spinner picking up 4 for 87 from 26 overs to finish with 23 wickets from three matches. (ESPN Cricinfo)last_img read more

first_img Harry Kane in action for Tottenham 1 Sam Allardyce believes Harry Kane went down too easily during Tottenham’s 2-2 draw with Tottenham at White Hart Lane.The Spurs striker won a penalty in the final minutes of the encounter in north London, after a challenge from Alex Song, and scored an equaliser to deny the Hammers all three points.Mauricio Pochettino’s side, who had trailed 2-0 with 10 minutes remaining following goals by Cheikhou Kouyate and Diafra Sakho, came from behind to gain a vital point in their search for Champions League football next year.“You can argue whether it’s enough contact from Alex’s arm or whether it’s not, but when you’re desperate like Tottenham are and you get touched, a player’s going to fall over and ask the referee to make a decision,” the Hammers boss told BT Sport. “Whether it’s the right decision or not, it’s the way football is today.“If we’re to learn anything by it, we have to do the same as what Tottenham do more often, because we stay on our feet and don’t get fouls and they get touched and go down and they do get fouls. In the end it’s make a difference.“But they’re so lucky today – one with the first goal and two with the fact Adrian saved the penalty and it’s fortunately – and unfortunately for us – come straight back to Harry Kane. It’s a bitter disappointment. (We had) an opportunity to have won by more.”last_img read more
