Revealed: Rowers in row with houseboat owners

first_imgOxford rowers claim they have been the victims of homophobic abuse and numerous attempts to force them from the river as tensions between rowers and houseboat residents escalate, Cherwell can report.Rowers from a number of different colleges allege that they have been targeted by houseboat owners who placed tacks on the towpath and thew eggs and tomatoes at them.Rowers have further alleged that residents have driven close enough to disturb the water in an attempt to capsize them, have intentionally driven into boats, and have hospitalised an Oxford town rower.These incidents have been brought up at the college rowing captain’s meeting, the minutes of which report that Oxford University Sabbatical Officer for Rowing Tom Coles “had been in contact with the police and the Environment Agency about the houseboats on the bottom stretch”.Describing one incident that occurred last term, University College team captain Ben Norbury told Cherwell: “Just as we passed the houseboats, our cox heard some splashes around our boat and then a bang as an egg hit our stern. Not really realising what was going on we kept rowing.“On the next lap, rowing up to the top again, in the same place, we saw two guys with a dog on the river bank. This time, apparently having depleted their stock of eggs, they just threw homophobic insults at us.“They began to follow us as we rowed to the spinning area, but gave up as we sped away. After spinning and rowing past them again we got similar shouting etc.”Norbury also claims that during one race last week a houseboat continued to sail down the middle of the river as a boat from St Catz college approached. The houseboat collided with the rowers as they turned, ripping off half the boat’s riggers. On rowchat.org, a forum for rowing discussion, one commentator said: “Barge driver clearly not a fan of rowing, ignored a load of marshals and then carried on afterwards without bothering to stop and see if anyone was hurt.”In a separate incident, a Wolfson college boat was intentionally rammed by a houseboat.Norbury believes that the boat that hit the St Catherine’s boat was only in Oxford temporarily, but that the boat that hit the Wolfson crew is permanently based here.Rowers believe that the houseboat owners hostility comes as a result of being disturbed by rowing crews, but could not understand why it had so suddenly developed this academic year.Mack Grenfell, a rower for University College, told Cherwell: “They claim that the antipathy is generated by us scraping/touching their boats with our blades.“I have been rowing for 3 and a half years, and I have got no idea why incidents are occurring now more than ever.“However, this happens relatively often unfortunately, but I think much less since all these major incidents. It’s odd though as to me this would be a minor issue.“My guess is that a lot of them hold resentment to the student population, or are just aggressive people.“Pretty much every day you’ll see loads of them drinking on the towpath, sometimes shouting at crews. Sometimes you’ll get a boat reeking of weed.”This was confirmed by Alastair, a houseboat owner resident on the Thames for over ten years, who said that rowers did knock into boats regularly and wake him up due to their use of megaphones to communicate, but that he accepted it as “part of life on the river”.He claimed that while most houseboat residents were content to share the river there were a small minority of “arseholes” who didn’t share that attitude, and that recently several “raging alcoholics” had moved their houseboat into the Oxford stretch of the Thames.Alastair alleged that they stole coal from other boats, threw beer cans around, and were regular drug users.Grenfell claimed the police “have a fat file on all the incidents”, but that they are unable to act as the water is not within their jurisdiction. He further stated that the incidents that took place of the towpath were considered by the police to be a “nuisance” and not worthy of investigation.Thames Valley Police have been contacted for comment.last_img read more

Did you miss these stories from Bayonne?

first_img× Change has been imminent since the Bayonne Board of Education (BBOED) voted not to renew the former superintendent’s contract last June, and imperative since the district’s financial crisis in November. Interim Superintendent Michael A. Wanko has made some big policy shifts since taking the position in July, most notably the decentralization of the academies and the introduction of deans. Much attention has been paid to the academies, but the reconfiguration of deans and vice principals will influence every student at Bayonne High School and could portend similar changes in the city’s grammar schools. Before Dr. Wanko arrived, vice principals were assigned to each of Bayonne High School’s six houses, performing both disciplinary functions and observations of instruction.Now, there will be four vice principals, each paired with one dean who will be assigned to each class level on a progressive basis, meaning each student will have the same dean and vice principal throughout his or her high school career. Click here for more.Without granting any validity to the lawsuits brought against Hudson County by two former Hudson County Sheriff’s Department officers, the county has agreed on a $120,000 settlement. The settlement puts to rest allegations by the officers that they were pressured to work on the reelection campaign for then- County Sheriff Juan Perez in 2010. Perez was defeated in the Democratic primary by the current sheriff, Frank Schillari. Perez currently serves as an at-large councilman in Bayonne. This is the fifth settlement the county has made in cases related to Perez’s term as sheriff. Click here for more. Bayonne held its annual National Night Out festival on August 1, this time on Broadway instead of its usual location at 16th Street Park. “Pull over,” one kid commanded to a crowd off festival-goers through a police cruiser’s built-in megaphone. Police officers chaperoned kids through demonstrations of their vehicles. Parents took pictures of their kids on a police motorcycle, in an all-terrain buggy, and the fan favorite, the cruiser. “My name is Car-la,” another kid joked through the megaphone as he blared the sirens. “I like to pretend I’m driving the car,” said Anaisha Melendez, 8 from the driver’s seat. Her mother, Debbie Diaz, said that she and her family were having a great time at the festival, which was completely free to the public, including bounce houses and food. “It’s a good thing for the community to come together like this,” said Diaz. “Everything [the police] do in town is helping us come together.” Click here for more.last_img read more

Breakfast on the run boosts Greggs’ takings

first_imgCatering to Brits breakfasting on the run has helped push Greggs’ profits up by nearly 8% in the last year.The chain has sold more than 10 million breakfast rolls since it launched the breakfast meal deal last February, and has also seen strong growth in its hot drinks – helped by new coffee machines serving freshly ground Fairtrade coffee. Costing 40% less than branded coffee chains, the drink had proved increasingly popular with customers, reported Greggs, and machines would be rolled out to all 1,487 shops this year. Preliminary results for the 52 weeks ended 1 January 2011 show pre-tax profit up 7.9% to £52.5m on sales up 2.1% to £662m, compared with the same period in 2009. However, with a record 93 new shops opening last year, like-for-like sales rose only 0.2%.Chief executive Ken McMeikan said it was planning for marginally positive like-for-like sales growth: “Performance in the year to date is in line with our expectations, with total sales increasing by 3.8% including like-for-like sales of 0.4%.”McMeikan added: “While 2011 will see further pressures on consumer spending and rising global commodity prices, our strong value positioning, excellent products, outstanding staff and clear strategy for growth mean we are well-positioned to deal with this challenging environment.”  He said Greggs had continued to improve supply chain efficiency, which allowed it to increase the number of shops that could be supplied from its existing bakeries. A five-year plan in 2009 aimed to reduce the cost of supply to shops by £10m, but through consolidation of manufacturing into centres of excellence and investment in more efficient processes, it had delivered savings of £1.4m in 2010, ahead of the original plan.  Alongisde the 80 planned new openings, Greggs aims to extend new design refits outside the London area, to include 60 across the UK.>>Greggs adds to meal deals>>Greggs accelerates shop expansion rateslast_img read more

first_imgShortbread brand Paterson’s has hit its target of raising £100,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support in a single year.The brand formed a partnership with the cancer charity last year and pledged to donate a percentage of proceeds from the sale of special promotional packs.The funds will support Macmillan in its work to provide services such as information and support centres for people living with cancer and their families.“The response of our customers across the UK has been phenomenal and we are grateful for their support in helping us reach this amazing milestone,” said Paterson Arran sales and marketing director Allan Miller.“The funds raised have the potential to power 2,000 hours of support at Macmillan centres; a vital resource for those affected by cancer and their loved ones.”In April this year, Paterson’s announced that it reached £75,000 for MacMillan Cancer Support and initially set the £100,000 target for July this year.Debbie Sumner, senior partnership development manager at Macmillan Cancer Support, thanked Paterson’s for being committed to supporting its fundraising target.“The incredible amount raised will help us to continue delivering essential help and support to the growing number of people living with cancer across the UK, and ensure that life with cancer can still be a life.”last_img read more

Béla Fleck And The Flecktones Were Pure Magic For Capitol Theatre Debut [Full Audio]

first_imgIt was Future Man that hit the nail on the head when he was introducing Béla Fleck, calling the banjoist an absolute master and visionary for wanting to bring the banjo into jazz music. The Flecktones are heady jazz through and through; don’t let Fleck’s bluegrass tones fool you. The band recently reunited for their first shows since 2012, playing a short but sweet two week run on the way to Telluride Bluegrass Festival. Their stop at the Capitol Theatre was a work of beauty, treating fans to an instrumental odyssey that captivated at every turn.At the crux of the Flecktones is incredible musicianship. Aside from the band’s namesake, the band features brothers Victor and Roy Wooten, the latter best known as “Future Man.” Additionally, multi-instrumentalist Howard Levy has made his return to the Flecktones. Levy was a founding member, but left in the 1990’s and was replaced by Jeff Coffin. As Coffin joined the Dave Matthews Band, it was up to Levy to help rekindle the “original” Flecktones magic. Fortunately, the group had a lot to say when they hit the Cap.All four are tremendous musicians, bringing a unique slice to the tight-knit core of the band. Fleck alternated between a traditional and custom electric banjo throughout the night, while Victor Wooten offered some funky tones with his arsenal of basses. Futureman kept the rhythm rocking with an incredibly unique instrument, dubbed a drumitar. Somewhere between a drum machine and a guitar, Futureman would stand up at times and sit down at others, but one hand was always rocking along on that drumitar. Rounding out the ensemble was Levy, who alternated between piano and harmonica primarily, at times peppering the music with juice harp or other percussion tactics.To attempt a description at the music would do it an injustice, because the sheer talents of each member came together to go well beyond the sum of its parts. Together, the four musicians captivated for a full two set performance, keeping fans at the edge of their seats throughout the show. There was a unanimous feeling of reverence from the crowd, as the four awe-inspiring musicians led listeners through an aural journey.Thanks to taper Kevin Antaya, we can listen to the whole show. Tune in below.If you have the chance to see this band live, do not miss it. They are truly masters of their craft, and seeing them perform was a true gift.[Photo by the Capitol Theatre]last_img read more
