By Sherry Koonce The News staff writer BEAUMONT — Jefferson County and the Texas Wildcatters are in a face-off this week while their attorneys try to determine how much time is remaining on the Southeast Texas hockey team’s contract. Whether the team’s contract is up for renewal now, or a year from now was the topic at a county commissioner work session Monday. Jeff Branick, assistant to the County Judge, said the county believes the team’s contract expires at the end of this season, probably in April or May depending on how many play-off games the team wins. The Wildcatters, said the team’s attorney John Burmeister, contend they have one more season before the original contract signed in 2003-04 is up for renewal. Burmeister said the contract would have expired at the end of the 2008 season, but because the team missed the 2006 season due of damage incurred to Ford Park by Hurricane Rita, the contract should be extended by another year. “Normally, 2008 would have been the last year of the contract, but the hurricane came in and kept the Wildcatters from playing a season,” Burmeister said. For the 2006-07 and the 2007-08 seasons, the Wildcatters were not required to pay the county for use of the Ford Park arena. Burmeister said the team will go back to the original agreement and pay $3,000 per game plus a graduated fee for every person attending thereafter. “From an operational standpoint, the county has had to subsidize hockey between 6,600 and $11,000 a game for the past two years, Branick said. Attorneys representing the county and the team plan to meet Tuesday to negotiate the contract, Branick said. In other matters, County Commissioners tabled for the third time, this time permanently, an agenda item that would have designated Precinct 1 Commissioner Eddie Arnold as the county’s representative on a sister-city trade mission to China. Arnold was to have traveled to Henan, China with a delegation from Port Arthur and a group of Southeast Texas business leaders. The group hoped of attract Chinese firms willing to invest in manufacturing businesses in Port Arthur. Arnold asked that the item be removed because he had been notified that Port Arthur Mayor Bobbie Prince would not be traveling to Henan, China because of security concerns in Tibet. If the trip materializes in the future, Arnold said he would utilize his vacation time to attend. Prince said she hopes the trip is only delayed, and that the political unrest in the region subsides so the delegation can go ahead with the trip at a later date. “With the state’s department travel advisory that is out right now, that poses a problem for me. Hopefully before the year is over we will have another opportunity go, but right now I don’t think that it is wise to make the trip,” Prince said. Her decision had nothing to do with the decision City Council made last week, she said. On Tuesday, the City Council voted 7-2 against funding the trip. Since then, Prince said alternate funding had been secured to pay for her travel expenses, but now that the advisory was issued, she will not be going. Prince said the advisory could be lifted as early as mid-April. Contact this reporter at [email protected]

The competition is aimed at increasing the diversity, quality, and standard of products available in craft markets. JIPO and the Ministry of Tourism and Entertainment, is hosting an ‘Authentic Jamaica Design Competition’. Story Highlights The creations should portray craft and design products which appeal to local and overseas buyers. In its continued bid to promote and develop the creative industries, the Jamaica Intellectual Property Office (JIPO), in association with the Ministry of Tourism and Entertainment, is hosting an ‘Authentic Jamaica Design Competition’, targeting artisans, designers, and producers within the craft sector.The competition is aimed at increasing the diversity, quality, and standard of products available in craft markets and designated craft areas across the island, and also to promote the importance of intellectual property protection of designs.Speaking with JIS News, Chairman of JIPO, Eugene Ffolkes, informed that the competition will not only foster creativity, but will focus on the linkage between intellectual property protection and the craft industry’s business structure and practices.Mr. Ffolkes explained that the creations should portray craft and design products which appeal to local and overseas buyers and tourists to the island and must be identifiable with Jamaica, through the use of indigenous raw materials and encompass connections to Jamaica’s culture and history.“The Ministry (Tourism and Entertainment) has created an authentic Jamaica Certification Mark…so persons coming to Jamaica will know that the products are actually from Jamaica,” the Chairman informed, adding that the whole idea is for visitors to get a wider mix of authentic Jamaican products and souvenirs.Mr. Ffolkes noted that the Ministry is spearheading an initiative to establish craft markets that sell only authentic Jamaican products that bear the mark or seal, with the first such market to be set up in Falmouth.Highlighting some of the rules of the competition, the Chairman informed that all entries must first be registered with JIPO before qualifying for competition entry and participants must be Jamaican residents.He noted, too, that submitted designs must be original work not yet in production for commercial gain or the public domain.Entrants’ designs can be from any of four categories – Souvenir (for example, key rings, paintings, and beach towels); Textile (use of fabrics such as cotton, denim, leather, or lace); Industrial (entries made of materials, such as cement, metal, porcelain, and recycled materials); and Natural (use of materials, including wood, straw, coconut shells, or semi-precious stones).In terms of judging and evaluation, the organisers will appoint a three-member judging panel per category, which will include a majority of practising craft designers and retail experts. Entries will be judged on originality and creativity; commercialization and business appeal, and economic benefits and impact.Prizes will include cash, loan facilities from EXIM Bank, consultation and support sessions with JIPO, and the Minister’s Trophy from the Ministry of Industry, Investment and Commerce.“Everybody who enters the competition is a winner as they would have registered their designs, become exposed to the industry and gain the opportunity to benefit from a lucrative industry,” Mr. Ffolkes said.The submission deadline is October 31 and persons may make submissions to JIPO or the offices of the Tourism Product Development Company (TPDCo).For further information on the competition, persons may visit JIPO’s website at www.jipo.gov.jm or call 946-1300/946-0789.
Bengaluru: A livid Virat Kohli on Thursday stormed into the match referee’s room and hurled abuses at him following Royal Challengers Bangalore’s (RCB) home defeat against Mumbai Indians (MI) in the Indian Premier League (IPL), which was marred by a glaring umpiring blooper that cost RCB dear, reports said. According to a report, right after the presentation ceremony, a furious Kohli barged into match referee Manu Nayyar’s room and used abusive language to let his displeasure known. As per the report, Kohli even told the match referee that he didn’t care if he was penalised for violating the code of conduct. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over ChandigarhNeeding 41 runs from 4 overs, RCB looked to be cruising against MI at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru before Jasprit Bumrah and Lasith Malinga tightened the screws on the home team and won the game for MI by 6 runs. But the game will be remembered for umpire S. Ravi’s failure to spot a no-ball off the final delivery of the match. With RCB needing six runs from the last ball to tie the game, Lasith Malinga bowled a dot ball, but replays showed it should have been a no-ball as he overstepped. Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced laterRCB skipper Virat Kohli made his displeasure known at the end of the game, saying that the teams were not playing club cricket and the officials needed to be more careful. During the presentation ceremony, Kohli said: “We are playing at the IPL level and not playing club cricket. The umpires should have had their eyes open. That is a ridiculous call (last ball). If it is a game of margins, I don’t know what is happening. They should have been more sharp and careful out there.” MI skipper Rohit Sharma too backed Kohli and said that these mistakes shouldn’t happen as they were game changers. “I just got to know when we crossed the rope. Somebody told me it was a no ball. These kind of mistakes are not good for the game of cricket, it’s pretty simple. In the over before that, Bumrah bowled a ball which wasn’t a wide. Those are game changers. There’s a TV up there, they have to watch what’s happening. It is as simple as that. “Players can’t do much. The only thing they can do is walk off and shake hands because it was the last ball. It’s disappointing to see that. I hope they rectify their mistakes like we do when we make mistakes,” Sharma rued. A senior official of the Board of Control for Cricket in India said the howler in Thursday’s match was waiting to happen since there have been no proper assessment and judgement. “What you saw (yesterday) was a symptom and not the disease. It has been two years since the Umpires’ Committee functioned. The process that was followed earlier was that the umpires were assessed during the year by a panel of former umpires who were on the Umpires’ Committee. “The committee members were also free to visit and see the assessment being done. All of that went out of the window once the Committee of Administrators (CoA) moved in lock, stock and barrel. Mistakes happened then too, but there was a system because of which the umpires were apprehensive since they were being judged,” the official said.
Cannes: Bollywood actress Diana Penty made a sparkling debut with a glittery gold ensemble at the 72nd Cannes Film Festival. For her look, the “Cocktail” actress chose a ravishing mini golden tassle dress by Greek fashion designer Celia Kritharioti. Diana, who is a part of the film gala as part of an association with vodka brand Grey Goose, paired the dress with embellished sheer golden knee-length heeled boots by the same designer. The 33-year-old actress attended the grand Chopard party with nude make-up and lips. She completed her look with sleek middle-parted hair. Apart from Diana and actress Kangana Ranaut, Huma Qureshi will be seen at the Cannes red carpet for the brand this year. Diana began her modelling career in 2005. She made her acting debut in 2012 with the romantic-comedy film “Cocktail”, and later featured in films like “Happy Bhag Jayegi”, “Lucknow Central”, “Parmanu – The Story of Pokhran” and “Happy Phir Bhag Jayegi”.
Klay Thompson, the star shooting guard for the Golden State Warriors, unambiguously took a knee to the face in the team’s Wednesday night game against the Houston Rockets. After that, everything got a little muddled — not only for Thompson, but also for the doctors who are being asked to explain why their test didn’t keep him out of the game.The team’s doctors gave Thompson a concussion evaluation after the injury and cleared him to return to the game. Thompson didn’t get to play (he was still bleeding and wasn’t allowed on the court), and now that looks like a lucky break. In a postgame interview, Thompson said he was “feeling a little dizzy,” and the team confirmed that after the game, he had concussion-like symptoms and will need to be retested before he can play in future games.The NBA concussion protocol requires any player who is suspected of having a concussion to have an immediate neurological evaluation. The NBA uses both a modified version of the Sport Concussion Assessment Tool (SCAT) and the Cogstate Computerized Cognitive Assessment Tool (CCAT). And according to their clinical trials, both tests do pretty well at detecting concussions accurately.The SCAT combines the results of tests of balance, cognitive function and other concussion indicators into a single score. According to a 2015 study, the SCAT has a sensitivity (successfully detecting concussions in people who really have concussions) of 96 percent. The NBA’s modified SCAT is probably somewhere in the same ballpark, but it’s hard to know for sure because the league hasn’t made public its modifications to the test. The study used a threshold of a 3.5-point drop from an earlier, baseline SCAT score to identify a concussion. If the NBA uses a different figure or focuses on a SCAT subscore instead of the overall figure, the accuracy of the test might change.The CCAT is a computerized test (you can try out a practice version here) that gives players four tasks (sort cards by color, remembering which cards you’ve already seen, etc.) and checks to see if they do badly on at least two of the challenges. According to a 2014 study, the CCAT successfully flags 96 percent of players who really have concussions.So, if the tests are pretty accurate, why wasn’t Thompson identified as possibly concussed until after the game?It’s hard to say, especially without information on the NBA-specific protocols, but sometimes tests are less accurate in real life than they are in a trial. Or a concussed player could just be unlucky; 5 percent or so pass a screening test in error.If Thompson hadn’t mentioned that he felt ill, questions might not have been raised about whether the test failed. Players are a check on the test, but they may not feel free to speak up if they’re passed in error.What happened to Thompson is a reminder for the NBA to audit its methods to make sure that the assessments it is giving players are working as well as they did in the clinical trials. That way, players can trust their doctors, and the fans can trust the league.Update (3:25 p.m., Friday, May 29): On Friday afternoon, the Warriors said Thompson had suffered a concussion, and would not return to the court until he is symptom-free and cleared under the NBA’s concussion protocol guidelines.
