Statement on Governor Christie Ending Reciprocity Agreement

first_imgStatement on Governor Christie Ending Reciprocity Agreement September 07, 2016 Statement Harrisburg, PA – Jeff Sheridan, Governor Wolf’s press secretary, released the following statement on Governor Christie’s announcement of his intention to end the reciprocal income tax agreement between New Jersey and Pennsylvania:“Governor Christie has erred significantly in his decision to unnecessarily punish 125,000 Pennsylvanians and cost the commonwealth $5 million annually. This will also hurt our mutual interests in creating jobs and opportunity in the region. Governor Wolf continues to hope that Governor Christie will change his mind and reverse his decision today. Unfortunately, it seems that Governor Christie is committed to making Pennsylvania and our residents working in New Jersey suffer the consequences of his failure to enact a responsible budget in a bipartisan way.”Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolfcenter_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

It’s a Rasen Gimme for McCoy

first_img Press Association Pipe said: “He’s an inspiration to all the jockeys and to everyone in racing. “He’s marvellous for our sport and it’s just great we’ve got someone like him. “Now, he’s finally beaten me. All of us in racing are so proud of him for doing it.” Tony McCoy set a new personal best as victory aboard It’s A Gimme in the Betfred Summer Plate at Market Rasen took him past old ally Martin Pipe’s career total of 4,191 winners. McCoy had equalled the mark with the appropriately-named On The Record at Uttoxeter on Wednesday, and went one better as the Jonjo O’Neill-trained 2-1 market leader It’s A Gimme claimed the feature event of the day at Lincolnshire track. The perennial champion jockey cut a confident figure throughout the two-and-three-quarter-mile Listed event and slowly eased his mount into contention heading down the back straight. The seven-year-old looked likely to run away with the prize as he tracked the leaders into the home turn, but stable companion Lost Legend, ridden by Richie McLernon, gave McCoy and favourite-backers a real fright. There was little to chose between the O’Neill pair jumping the final fence, but in trademark fashion McCoy lifted It’s A Gimme home to triumph by a length and three-quarters. Mazuri Cowboy was third. A mud-splattered McCoy walked back to the weighing-room while It’s A Gimme received treatment for exhaustion. He said: “The horse is OK. He’s just tired. He’ll be all right.” McCoy said: “I was lucky Jonjo had a few in the race and put me on this one. This is a willing little horse, who kept finding for me. “The record was just a very personal thing between me and Mr Pipe. He set the standard and revolutionised training. He is someone I held in high esteem and we had great times together in my time as his stable jockey. “We’ve had a bit of banter pretty much since I’ve ridden my 4,000 winner. It’s only a personal thing and I will be putting in a satisfying call tonight.” McCoy was presented with a 20kg Lincolnshire Poacher cheese by the racecourse management in honour of his achievement. last_img read more

Nigerian Players Bank on Home Support to Win at Lagos Squash…

first_imgAmerica-based Babatunde Ajagbe believes home support would surely inspire Nigerian players to victory at the 2018 Lagos International Squash Classics.Ajagbe, a former champion of the tournament is not ruling out the home players claiming the title this year.“I believe Nigerian players can claim the title this year because we are all doing fine and everybody is looking forward to the tournament. This is our home and I am sure the support from the Nigerian fans will be helpful to all the home players in the competition. There is no doubt that Egyptians are very good but home advantage will come in handy for Nigerian players,” Ajagbe said. As the only Nigerian starting his campaign in the Main Draw of the men’s event, Ajagbe is optimistic that more Nigerians will play their way into the main draw (round of 16).“I am sure more players will come through to the Main Draw and for me I am aiming at the title again. I just took part in the Bermuda Open where I made it from the qualifying round to the last 16 where I was defeated by Bermuda’s Micah Franklin.I hope that competing in this kind of tournament has prepared me for the Lagos Classics. I am hopeful that I can win it this year and I hope the home support will be there for us,” he said.Ajagbe however, dismissed the Egyptians as threat, saying, “I don’t think we will give the Egyptians the chance to again dominate us at home and I personally believe they are no threat to my dream of claiming the title this year.“I am ready for them and it is also good that we are having quality players coming to feature in the competition,” he said.After the opening matches in the qualifying round, the eight players that will join the top seeds in the Main Draw will be decided today.Four slots each will be filled in the Main Draw of the men and women’ events.The $20,000 prize money PSA-certified tournament is sponsored by the Lagos State Government and organised by the Lagos State Squash Association with support from the Nigeria Squash Federation (NSF).Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

first_img“What happened right, I was sparring a lion, because I really want to take this camp seriously,” Joshua told Sky Sports.“It’s just been tough, difficult training. I’m a fighter so the scars and stuff – look at my hands and stuff.“That’s just another added war wound to my list of scars so that’s all it is.”Trainer Rob McCracken insisted he was pleased with Joshua’s preparations, despite Ruiz Jr being introduced as a replacement after Jarrell Miller failed a drug test.“It’s been a good camp.

He’s worked hard. Good sparring and good sparring partners as well.
