(AP) — Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston is under investigation in an alleged sexual assault reported nearly a nearly a year ago.The university and Winston’s attorney confirmed Wednesday that the Tallahassee Police Department is conducting an investigation.Winston has been spectacular for the No. 2 Seminoles in his first college season and the redshirt freshman is one of the leading contenders for the Heisman Trophy. He has passed for 2,661 yards and 26 touchdowns to help Florida State win its first nine games and move into position for a spot in the BCS national championship game.Tallahassee Police Department officials refused to answer any questions, although they did release a heavily redacted two-page incident report. The report does not mention Winston by name, but it says the incident took place between 1:30 and 2 a.m. last Dec. 7.It describes the suspect in the sexual assault case as being between 5-foot-9 and 5-11. Winston is listed by Florida State at 6-4.Timothy Jansen, a Tallahassee attorney, said Winston hasn’t been interviewed by police. Jansen said that at one point he had believed the matter had been resolved.“We basically hope it will be resolved quickly and that Winston will be exonerated and he will be able to focus all his attention on academics and football,” Jansen said.The school and coach Jimbo Fisher wouldn’t comment because the investigation wasn’t closed. The school also said there was no change in Winston’s status for the Seminoles’ home game Saturday against Syracuse.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Matt ReeseBanners are nice. Success is great. But really, at the end of each Ohio State Fair, it is really about the experience, lessons learned and the people. Though Caroline Winter from Pickaway County has had some success in showmanship and breed shows, those are not the first things she shares about what she loves about the Ohio State Fair.“I have been showing since I could walk. I love hanging out with my friends who are also my competitors,” the 17-year-old said. “In the show ring we compete, but if my friend beats me, I don’t hold it against them. Whatever happens in the show ring, we go get ice cream or play a game of cards — a very competitive game of cards.“Spoons is my favorite card game at the State Fair. We’ll get a big game going and it is a lot of fun. And, for the ice cream, you have to go at the right time because if you don’t the line is wrapping around the building. I go after I show to get a nice treat, cool off and look at the butter cow.”The fun at the Ohio State Fair is the culmination of months of long hours and dedication — something many fairgoers do not always understand.“I love how there are all sorts of different people with all sorts of different backgrounds who come to watch the show. They ask questions and I love talking with them about the cattle,” Caroline said. “A lot of people look forward to seeing the animals and learning about them. I love to talk about the daily care that goes into the animals and what it takes to show them and how much food they actually eat. It is fun talking to them about the animals. I like explaining what I do and why I do it. And yes, they do poop and I do have to clean it up.”This year Caroline (with some help from her older sister Christina) will have three Angus heifers, a Shorthorn cow calf pair, a Shorthorn calf, an Angus steer, a ShorthornPlus steer, and a Maintainer steer at the Ohio State Fair. Many hours go into the care of the cattle leading up to the State Fair but Caroline also has a long set of duties on her family’s crop farm and she trains for fall cross-country in her spare time.“In the mornings in the summer I start with feeding the cattle and getting them in the barn. We rinse every day. When my dad gets home we help with hay, planting, working ground, and harvesting in the fall,” she said. “In the winter we clean the barn and feed a lot of hay. We have a corn-wheat-soybean rotation with another 80 acres of hay — small square bales and big round bales. I help with hay all summer and I am always working with the cattle.”There is plenty of work to be done with the cattle while they are at the State Fair, but in comparison to the normal summer schedule for Caroline, the event is like a vacation.“With the breeding show during the first part of the State Fair, we are in and out so quickly there is not much extra time. But I like the people there, especially in the Shorthorn Breeders Association. They are so nice and friendly. They love their card games and they give out popsicles,” Caroline said. “With the market show later in the Fair, I only have three animals so I can relax a little more. When we are up at the State Fair with the market steers, it is like a vacation away from home and I am able to hang out with my friends and relax. There is way less to take care of compared to the Pickaway County Fair where I had two market steers, a feeder calf, two market lambs, a breeding ewe, and a market hog. Then I went right from county fair to the Shorthorn Junior Nationals in Tennessee. At the county fair or when I’m at home, I have something going on every day.”Of all the species Caroline shows, the cattle are her favorite, which makes her State Fair experience even more special.“With the sheep or pigs, I only have a few months with them. With the cattle, I am working with them year round. You can really see the difference with them starting to trust you and you get this bond with them as they get used to you. Nugget is my Shorthorn cow I’m taking to State Fair. We have gone to many shows together,” Caroline said. “We did the BEST program and other state fairs. Before she had her baby we’d go out here in the lot and play tag. I’d sprint through the pasture and she’d run after me. In the stalls at shows I lay down beside her with my back at the front of the stall and she will lay her head right on me.”Her favorite part of competing with the cattle is showmanship.“I like showmanship. It doesn’t matter how good your animal is,” she said. “It is about how well you can present your animal. The judge is mainly focused on you and I like to show how well I can present my animal.”Caroline will have the unique opportunity to share her showmanship expertise and excitement for the fair this year as a part of the inaugural Dean’s Charity Steer Show on July 30 at 2:00 p.m. in the Voinovich Building. For the event, celebrity exhibitors — including some who never set foot in a show ring — will be paired with Ohio 4-H members to try their hand at showing a steer and vying for the judge’s eye. Donors can support each celebrity involved and proceeds go to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio.Caroline will be assisting Matt Barnes, a Columbus News anchor for NBC4 Today, as he makes his initial trip into the show ring to wrangle a steer.“Bill Tom from the Ohio State Fair came to me and asked if I wanted to do this at Beef Expo because I have exhibited for so long. I wanted to do this to return the favor of everyone who has helped me. And I know it is going to a really good cause. I actually know some families who have used the Ronald McDonald House. And it sounded fun,” Caroline said. “I always like teaching people about showing cattle and this gives me another chance to do that. Matt Barnes came down to our county fair to watch me get the steers ready for the show and then watched me show them. He asked some questions about the steers and did a short interview. He has no background with steers. I told him, you have to just relax.Columbus morning television anchorman Matt Barnes came to the Winter farm to practice his showmanship skills before the Dean’s Charity Steer Show. Photo provided by the Winter family.“If you get worked up, the steer will get worked up, so you have to be comfortable with them. Once he gets comfortable we’ll lead the steer around some and get the feet set a few times to practice. Then we’ll work on some more of the details. Matt seems pretty excited about it. He asked me if I’ve ever taught someone in one day before. I think he seems very willing to try. If he tries and gives his best effort then he will do pretty well.”Caroline is really looking forward to the event and the Ohio State Fair as a whole. She is hoping to celebrate some State Fair success with some cold, chocolate ice cream from the dairy building. And, like every exhibitor at the fair, she would love a new banner to hang in the barn, but Caroline knows the experience, lessons learned and the people make every year a success at the Ohio State Fair no matter what the outcome in the show ring.To find out more about the Dean’s Charity Steer Show and make a donation today at cfaes.osu.edu/deanscharitysteershow.Long months of hard work are an important part of taking competitive cattle to show at the Ohio State Fair.
AC Milan coach Gattuso concedes Higuain now closer to Chelseaby Carlos Volcano9 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveAC Milan coach Rino Gattuso has hinted Gonzalo Higuain is leaving for Chelsea this week.Gattuso was speaking after the Coppa Italia win over Sampdoria.He said, “We have a very honest relationship, we say things to people’s faces. There is great honesty. When a player makes certain choices, it becomes difficult to convince him otherwise. One can try.“At this moment, he is a Milan player and we’re holding on tight. I don’t know what will happen. We are honest with each other and I want him to maintain this attitude, which has never been lacking thus far.”Gattuso continued: “I’ve talked to him a great deal, but it’s hard to give advice, because the career of a player only lasts 13-14 years. It’s his mind, not mine. The most important thing is to talk as men, look each other in the eyes and speak the truth.“I haven’t figured out what Higuain is unhappy with, because I see him look content and involved in the locker room atmosphere. We’ll see what happens. If it was up to me, I’d keep him at my house and feed him my dinner.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say

National Coordinator of the Housing, Opportunity, Production and Employment Programme (HOPE), Lieutenant Colonel Martin Rickman, says the programme is seeking to increase partnerships with private-sector organisations, in an effort to expand its reach.“We invite interested organisations to make contact with the HOPE office located at the Office of the Prime Minister and indicate to us what their needs are in terms of skill sets, and we will discuss how best we can work out an arrangement wherein all parties will reap maximum benefits,” Lt.

Col. Rickman pointed out that there is a desire to reach a larger number of unattached youth in the short-term, thus minimising any likelihood of their involvement in illicit activities.“In order to achieve this, we need the assistance of entities that are willing to participate by offering apprenticeship opportunities to our participants,” he stated.The National Coordinator noted that engagements through the initiative are mutually beneficial for both the host agency and the worker.He explained that projects that would have been earmarked for completion by the entity can sometimes be executed at a fraction of the allocated budget by recruiting the services of interns.“Participants in the programme have, so far, been engaged in the areas of: Customer Service, Digitisation, Maintenance, Vector Control, Garment Manufacturing, and the National Service Corps, among others,” Lt. Col. Rickman informed.He also stated that in many cases, the hosts are particularly impressed with the performance and dedication of the recruits they have received through the programme.The first batch of participants are expected to be certified and participate in a graduation exercise by mid-year.

MONTREAL – The Port of Montreal started 2018 with hopes of another record year for cargo traffic as the Canadian free trade agreement with Europe begins to bear fruit.Canada’s second-largest port anticipates cargo traffic increasing about four per cent after ending 2017 up almost seven per cent at a record 38 million tonnes.A strong economy, growing business with Asia and reversal of Enbridge’s 9B pipeline contributed to last year’s strong results, port CEO Sylvie Vachon said Wednesday.“The fact that the economy will be stronger will be very positive for that kind of cargo,” she said in an interview.Last year marked the first full year of operations for a new container terminal that will eventually handle 600,000 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) per year. The port is pushing for approval of another terminal that would accommodate 1.15 million TEU containers per year starting in 2021 or 2022.Vachon said U.S. President Donald Trump’s threat to end the North American Free Trade Agreement is prompting transporters to look at developing other markets, notably Europe because of the new trade deal.“It will be gradual but positive for us,” she said of the European trade agreement.The Port of Montreal is also coming off a record year for cruises with the anticipation of growing that business by another 14 per cent to 130,000 passengers in 2018. More than 50 ship arrivals brought more than 114,000 passengers to Montreal last year, up 33 per cent over 2016 and up 140 per cent compared with 2011.The growth resulted from more cruises stopping to mark Canada’s 150th birthday and the 375th birthday celebrations of Montreal’s founding and the cruise industry’s interest in adding new destinations.The preliminary traffic results were released at an event awarding a gold-headed cane to Capt. Rakesh Kumar of the container ship Ottawa Express. The cane has been given annually for 179 years to the first ocean-going vessel to reach the Port of Montreal without a stopover.Kumar said he’s docked in Montreal about 60 times, but never experienced the extreme cold weather that has gripped much of the continent in recent days.However, the frigid conditions haven’t hurt the port operations.“For sure for the people who work outside it’s difficult, but with the Coast Guard who do a very good job to break the ice, for the moment everything is OK for the Port of Montreal,” Vachon said.The same can’t be said for the St. Lawrence Seaway where ice on the U.S. side has caused five ocean vessels to remain in the Cornwall-to-Kingston area and will force the waterway to close a few days later than normal for the winter season.“Once we see those ships complete that portion of their transit they should be clear to finish the Canadian section and exit the St. Lawrence Seaway,” said Seaway spokesman Andrew Bogora.Although the final tally for St. Lawrence Seaway traffic is expected to be released next week, Bogora expects the momentum of the year was maintained in December. As of November, cargo traffic in the first 11 months of the year was up around 8.5 per cent.The growth was largely attributable to a 35 per cent increase in iron ore tonnes destined for Asia. General cargo was up 28 per cent and dry bulk 12 per cent. Grain was down 10.5 per cent.
