SaskTel representative, Erin Lord explained that the donation of supplies was made through a “We See You” program which her company is a sponsor of.“The container comes as just one venture that the SaskTel We See You program has sent out of Canada. In 2006, SaskTel became a title sponsor of the program, We See You and since then the We See You program has produced many containers that have been sent to many different regions all over the world, some of those include; Kenya, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Nepal, Uganda and Haiti, and now its 12th container has landed here in Dominica”.SaskTel representative, Erin Lord with her gift compliments the National HIV/AIDS Response Programme.The goal of the “We See You” program she explained is to “connect youth and local corporate sponsors with nonprofit organizations in the international communities who can help provide medical and educational support to the most vulnerable people in their community”.SaskTel partnered with CANTO, who introduced them to the National HIV/AIDS Response program in September of last year.“SaskTel International did our part by filling a 40 foot long, 10 feet high and 10 feet wide container of medical, office and building supplies. We were able to offer the medical supplies for the container from a unique relationship with the local health authority in Saskatchewan, while the building and office supplies came from all SaskTel and SaskTel International employees who donated them from their homes and their work places. SaskTel International also did some fundraising in order to provide the response program to turn the container, which is a donation itself, into an office space,” Lord noted.CANTO’s representative, Tricia Balthazar who is Dominican born but residing in Trinidad, was instrumental in contacting an employee of the National HIV/AIDS Response Programme, requesting that she provides a list of supplies that they required.Chief Medical Officer, Dr David Johnson presenting a gift compliments the National HIV/AIDS Response Programme to CANTO’s representative, Tricia Balthazar.Balthazar noted that the company is pleased to partner with SaskTel for a second time in providing much needed assistance to a Caribbean island, the first being St. Vincent.Meanwhile, Chief Medical Officer, Dr David Johnson thanked both companies for their donation, especially during economic hardships. “We recognize that there is significant economic hardship worldwide and I know therefore that the Ministry of Health and by extension the National HIV/AIDS Coordinating Unit is very pleased that SaskTel has chosen Dominica and the National HIV/AIDS program to make this kind gesture”. He noted that the donation “will certainly go a long way in improving the lives of persons who are infected and affected with HIV/AIDS who are living in Dominica, not only those who are directly infected and affected with HIV/AIDS but also donation will also assist the Ministry of Health in improving some of the services that we offer to some of our clients”. Dr Johnson also complimented National HIV/AIDS Coordinator, Nurse Frampton for her efforts and dedication to improving the lives of persons living with HIV/AIDS.A special wooden clock shaped as the map of Dominica, with the flag of Dominica was presented as a thank you token to the representatives of SaskTel and CANTO.Dominica Vibes News

US women footballers will have to wait on their appeal against the dismissal of their equal pay lawsuit after a Tuesday ruling by federal judge Gary Klausner. US star Megan Rapinoe wears her jersey inside-out to hide the US Soccer Federation logo to protest for equal pay during the national anthem before a March 2020 SheBelieves Cup match against Japan in Frisco, Texas US District Judge Klausner had dismissed the players’ equal pay claim in their lawsuit against the US Soccer Federation in May. Lawyers for the women had asked him to enter a final judgment on that decision, which would have allowed them to take the case to the US Court of Appeals in San Francisco. But Klausner, who has scheduled a trial to begin September 15 on the players’ remaining claim of discriminatory work conditions, ruled that no appeal should go ahead before then – and that trial should not be delayed pending an appeal of the pay claim. “The granting of an immediate appeal will not eliminate the possibility of two trials or the possibility of successive appeals involving interlocking facts,” Klausner wrote Tuesday. “The court has declined the parties’ request to stay trial pending the resolution of any appeal. “And should a jury render a verdict unfavorable to plaintiffs on their remaining claims, there is no reason to think plaintiffs will not appeal that decision.” The US women, who clinched back-to-back World Cup wins with victory at last year’s finals in France, had based their claim for back pay in the disparities between prize money distributed by FIFA at the men’s and women’s World Cups. Klausner ruled in May that the women couldn’t prove pay discrimination because they had previously turned down an offer in Collective Bargaining Agreement negotiations to be paid along the lines of the US men’s team. He allowed claims of gender discrimination, such as discrepancies in areas of travel, housing and medical support to go ahead.

Martha Rose Fry, a lifetime resident of Millhousen, Indiana, passed away on May 11th, three days before her 98th birthday. One of her friends recently wrote to her, “The day you were born, your family, our community and the world were given a great gift! You are a blessing to us all!”Martha was born on May 14, 1922, the daughter of George, Sr. and Clara (Ruberg) Walters. She was born at home and lived there until her marriage. She graduated from Napoleon High School in 1940. She married Omer Fry on May 14, 1946 at the Immaculate Conception Church in Millhousen. At the time of Omer’s death on November 1, 2008, they were married over 62 years. Both were members of this church their entire lives.Martha was a homemaker, starting at seventeen years of age, when she kept house for her dad after her mother died. She was always very active in her community. She was a member and volunteer for many organizations throughout her life. She was a member of the St. Anne’s Society and the Marion Township’s Fireman Auxiliary. She taught religion classes and was a Eucharistic minister. She was a 4-H club leader. She volunteered at the Decatur County Memorial Hospital. She worked hard, raising her children, and cleaning other’s homes. She still found time to be a great friend and caregiver to her family, friends and neighbors well into her late 80’s. She cared for an ailing aunt, her mother-in-law, her uncle and her father at different periods in her home. Visiting and bringing homemade treats to the elderly and sick was a lifetime commitment. Even in the past year, many have been touched by her kindness and attention.Martha was a very social person and loved being with people and having a good time. During her life, she enjoyed her Wednesday afternoon bowling league, several Euchre card clubs, as well as playing Euchre with relatives and friends. She especially loved dancing to Big Band music. She and Omer looked forward to dances at the Eagle’s in Batesville, but went to many other dance venues, as well. They were good dancers and won a dance contest for the waltz. She enjoyed the Adult Center for cards and for dancing. She really knew how to enjoy life and have lots of fun well into her late 90’s, dancing at her granddaughter Madelyn’s wedding this past November. She and Omer would dance in the living room while watching the Lawrence Welk program, her favorite show. They danced with grandchildren to their favorite music on their “hi-fi”. She would say it put her right back in the past and all the wonderful memories.Family was very important and the yearly Walters’ family reunion was sacred to her. She was a great cook. All the relatives looked forward to her baking, especially her pies. The kids loved her yummy cookies. She enjoyed travel and she and Omer loved travelling with their children and grandchildren. Some of her favorite trips were to see her nieces and nephews in Florida. She travelled to Hawaii with friends and dear sister-in-law, Leora Walters. She went out west with Omer and her nephew, David, and remembers that as a favorite trip. Mary, her niece, was the best tour guide on a trip to Washington, D.C. She visited relatives in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Florida. She spent weeks long winter visits to Florida. For several years, she was a doted-on guest of nieces Linda, Lois, and Mary. They provided a fabulous time.Martha is survived by daughter Diane (Steve) Simmonds of Greensburg and two sons, Daryl (Sue) Fry of Indianapolis and Greg (Diane) Fry of Avon, eleven grandchildren, Stephenie Ward, Darla Dawson, Stellanie Krimm, Dominic Simmonds and Macy Simmonds, Julie (Chris) Mennel, Amanda Fry, Madelyn (David) Eckhart, Heather (Josh) Masters, Nathan and Michael Fry and nine great grandchildren.

The 21-year-old is being linked with so-called bigger clubs increasingly regularly, but Albion head coach Irvine expects his key forward to see the bigger picture. “I think Saido has the maturity to realise if he keeps doing what he does he will make progress here and all sorts of things will open up at international and club level,” the Scot said. “If he keeps doing this, he will become a top striker and anything can happen.” Irvine, who rates the Burundi-born forward at well over £15million, accepts the club may find themselves fending off interest from Berahino’s suitors in January. “There’s a bit of time to go between now and then, but if he continues to do what he is doing other clubs will come in and test the water,” he said. “That will come down to what the chairman (Jeremy Peace) wants to do. But the club is in such a good position we don’t need to sell. I think the chairman will make the right decision. I wouldn’t like to see Saido go, but I have to be realistic as I know what the possibility is. “Our chairman is very strong and will only do what is in the best interests of the club, and we will have to see whether it comes to that. If things change for Saido and he’s done a good job for West Brom, we’ll be happy.” Irvine is not at all bored of the media attention the England Under-21 international garners. “I’ll be delighted if we’re still talking about Saido at the end of the season,” he said. “His movement is very good. I expected him to score when through on Monday and he’s going in the right direction. He’s got plenty of things to improve, but with his attitude and the way he is living his life I think he can only get better and better.” Berahino made a name for himself last season with a goal against Manchester United at Old Trafford. Since then he has established himself as one of the Premier League’s hottest prospects, and added to that reputation with another goal against the Red Devils in Monday’s 2-2 draw at The Hawthorns. Press Association West Brom sensation Saido Berahino is too mature to have his head turned by interest from the Barclays Premier League glamour clubs, according to his boss Alan Irvine.
Urano gave Willie Mullins cause for optimism when he led from the off to record an easy victory on his fencing debut in the McCarthy Insurance Group Beginners Chase at Cork. Mullins, earlier successful with Bosman Rule, said: “He wasn’t bought as a chaser and was bought as a hurdler, but maybe this is his job and he seemed to take to it well. “We thought he might be good enough to run in the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle, but he has had a disappointing hurdling career. It looked like longer trips were suiting him better, but maybe he is now coming to himself. “He could be a Power Gold Cup horse, but I hate making plans with him as he has disappointed in the past and I’d be happy if he just kept winning races.” Walsh added: “He jumped super, travelled fine and quickened up down the straight. We’re struggling to find what the key is to him and maybe he’s just a stronger horse now. H opefully he’ll go forward and he couldn’t have been any more impressive today. Only five went to post for the McCarthy Insurance Group Handicap Chase, but it provided a dramatic finish when the whole complexion of the contest changed at the third-last fence. Former Thyestes Chase hero Jadanli was in the process of running a big race when the veteran came down while leading, and he was soon followed by If Not For You, who held every chance at the time. That left recent Tramore scorer Bothair Clei in front with Sizing Coal breathing down his neck, and Daniel Murphy’s 5-2 shot proved to have most in the locker, going on to score by a length and a half under Philip Enright. Murphy said: “It was hard to know what would have happened with the two fallers, but he won snug enough. Press Association “There’s a handicap chase I’ve had in mind for him at Naas in February over two and a half miles for novices. He’s definitely able to step up in trip and he might make the four-miler at Cheltenham, although I don’t know whether he’ll go there. “My father bred him and I’d love to get him some black type as we still have the family.” Enright added: “The two falling at the third-last left me in front a bit longer than I wanted, but in fairness when Johnny (Burke, on Sizing Coal) came to me he picked up again. He wasn’t doing a whole pile in front but he kept galloping to the line.” Often frustrating during a hurdles career in which the ex-French gelding won just one race in 11 attempts, it could be a different story now as he made the switch to the bigger obstacles look easy in the hands of Ruby Walsh. The evens favourite barely put a foot wrong and stretched away going to the final fence to beat Drumlee by 13 lengths.
