We want to continue on that platform,” he said.In the late game, Maverley/Hughenden will look to preserve their winning streak in Zone A. The Maverley/Hughenden team, under the guidance of coach Lijasu Simms, has won six games in a row to be on maximum 19 points.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The Best of the Buckeye Program, hosted by the Ohio Cattlemen’s Association (OCA) in conjunction with the Ohio Beef Expo and the Ohio State Fair, successfully concluded its fifth season. The program rounded out the year with 269 head of cattle nominated by 146 breeders.The Best of the Buckeye program recognizes top-placing Ohio bred, born and registered calves, along with the breeder and exhibitor, in each breed division at the two shows. This year a new event was created for breeder recognition sponsored by Sullivan Supply and Stock Show University. Thanks to these generous sponsors, over $10,000 was awarded in prizes to breeders in late August at the first annual Breeder Reception. Nominating breeders gathered in late August for an ice cream social, program and prize drawing. All attending breeders at the reception received a coupon for half off the price of a purchase of an e-blast to OCA’s membership to market their Best of the Buckeye cattle for the 2019 season.New this year, OCA offered a People’s Choice division for breeders and exhibitors to promote their Best of the Buckeye cattle from the Ohio Beef Expo and Ohio State Fair for friends and family to vote for their favorites. The social media campaign reached over 40,000 people and the winners were named at the breeder reception. Earning the people’s choice for the heifer division was Jacob LeBrun with his Angus heifer bred by Hall Cattle Company and topping the steer division was Hudson Drake with his Chianina steer bred by Grauer Show Cattle. Both the exhibitor and breeder of the People’s Choice award winners received a banner commemorating their win.The program provides Ohio seedstock breeders an additional marketing opportunity, creates a source for moderately priced show steers and heifers by providing a program with awards and prestige and attracts new participants interested in showing at the Ohio Beef Expo and/or the Ohio State Fair with the benefit of added premiums. Breeders are encouraged to use the Best of the Buckeye logo for use in printed and digital promotion of Best of the Buckeye eligible cattle.

National Conference (NC) president and Member of Parliament from Srinagar Farooq Abdullah said on Saturday that annulling Article 370 and Article 35-A will be tantamount to a constitutional coup.“Article 370 is essential and unassailable until a final resolution is reached. Yes, the Article was deemed to be temporary until the issue of the State was resolved. However, the issue is still lingering; therefore Article 370 will continue to remain in force,” said Dr. Abdullah in a speech in north Kashmir’s Handwara.He said the accession of the State took place in unusual circumstances. “The Maharaja who was rather vacillating then did not want to accede to any of the two dominions. He wanted the erstwhile state to remain free. Keeping in view the special circumstances, Article 370 was added to the Constitution of India,” he said.Dr. Abdullah said the uneducated rants of those who wanted to obliterate Article 370 were far-fetched, fanciful and devoid of any genuineness.He warned that if Article 35-A was annulled, “then all the successive presidential orders will get annulled automatically.”“The need of the hour is to make people aware of the consequences of repealing Article 370 and Article 35-A,” he added.
Senior Aam Aadmi Party leader and MLA from Sunam Aman Arora ridiculed the Punjab AAP leadership on Saturday over their remark that the party had lost all hopes of getting justice in the 2015 Bargari sacrilege cases.Hitting out at AAP MLA and Leader of Opposition in the Punjab Assembly Harpal Singh Cheema, Mr. Arora said that while there is no doubt that in the last four years successive State governments of Akali Dal-BJP and the Congress had “done nothing” to deliver justice in the cases, “it does not mean that AAP, which is the principal Opposition party in the State, should abandon all hope of delivering justice to the people”. “Before issuing such a negative and demoralising statement, the State leadership should not forget that AAP is a product of an agitation… had [party convener] Arvind Kejriwal left his agitation midway, Delhi would not have an honest and transparent government,” he said.Two persons were killed in the police firing in Behbal Kalan of Faridkot district in 2015, which followed the alleged sacrilege of the Guru Granth Sahib at Bargari.On August 30, Mr. Cheema and other party leaders had stated that AAP had lost all hopes of getting justice in the cases “given the way the probe by Central and State agencies was being pushed into oblivion”.
