Flyers lose 6-1 to the Grande Prairie AthleticsWith the series tied up 1-1, Thursday night’s game three shifted back to Grande Prairie, in front of an unusually large crowd at the Coca-Cola Centre.But, the Flyers played possibly their worst game of the season, allowing the Athletics to take control, and by the end of the 1st it was 2-0 Athletics.- Advertisement -The A’s kept playing hard during the second and doubled their lead by 2 points for a second period score of 4-0 Athletics.Ryan Bjorklund replaced Chad Vizzutti in the Flyers net to start the third, in a bid by coach Brash to start the team, but it had little effect, as the Flyers looked tired and unfocused. It looked like it was going to be a shutout for the Athletics, but David Alexander managed to get the Flyers on the board late, in the only bright spot in an otherwise long and forgettable night. The Athletics definitely earned the win, keeping the Flyers to the perimiter all game, and allowing very few goal-scoring opportunities. Grande Prairie went 3/5 on the powerplay, including two goals from Mike Mohr, while the Flyers went 0/8 with the man advantage, including an extended period of two-man advantage late in the second. The Athletics now take a 2-1 lead in the series, with game four on Saturday night, again in Grande Prairie.

All infirmaries across the island will be outfitted with closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras, says Minister of Local Government and Community Development, Hon. Desmond McKenzie.Speaking at the inaugural Youth Mayors’ Forum, held at the Clarendon Municipal Corporation in May Pen on November 22, Mr. McKenzie said the cameras should be in place at all the infirmaries by the end of 2020, adding that “the one we started in Hanover is not a one-off situation… . It is going to become a permanent feature”.The forum was held as part of the activities to commemorate Local Government and Community Development Month in November.In keeping with the Month’s theme, ‘Protecting the Vulnerable…Establishing Hope through Local Governance’, Youth Mayors from around the country presented their concerns and recommendations to the Minister on the state of infirmaries.Among the many recommendations made by the Youth Mayors is for the 24-hour protection and surveillance of infirmaries, along with professional training of infirmary staff.“In a Bill that was tabled recently, the decision is made already that in order for you to be employed at a certain level within the service, you have to ensure that you can acquire the requisite qualifications to deliver service to those who are in the care of the State,” the Minister said, in response to the recommendation on training.
