No Comments

first_imgGovernor DeSantis made it official, Palm Beach County will begin a five-step entry into Phase Two reopening on Tuesday. Theaters and bars inside restaurants will be able to open first. In person learning in schools will follow after the school board, county commission or the Governor decides when to reopen brick and mortar schools…could take a week or more.Despite Palm Beach County Schools Superintendent Donald Fennoy objection, Palm Beach County commissioners agreed Tuesday to ask Gov. Ron DeSantis to move the county to Phase 2 by Tuesday, September 8th. The governor approved the measure.Commissioners also recommended Tuesday that the school board vote to postpone in-person classes on its own, a suggestion that the school board’s chairman dismissed as politically unfeasible.In doing so, the school board gave control of school-reopening to the county commission.If the school board wants to delay classes further without risking state penalties, it may have to place its hopes in PBC Mayor Dave Kerner once again.Kerner says he will make the pitch on the school board’s behalf and ask Governor DeSantis personally if he would let the county’s schools open a week later than September 14th.“I said, ‘Let me see if I can make that happen,’ ” Kerner recalled telling Fennoy. “I’m trying to get the best of both worlds here.”last_img read more

first_imgA sensational run from Usain Bolt saw him crush rival Justin Gatlin over 200 metres in 19.55 seconds and chalk up another sprint double at the IAAF World Championships.Both men flew out of the blocks but Bolt pulled away in the home straight, affording himself a smile and bumping his chest with his fists as he eased up crossing the line. Gatlin took silver in 19.74s, with South Africa’s Anaso Jobodwana snatching bronze with a new national record of 19.87s.Alonso Edward was the unfortunate athlete nudged off the podium, while Great Britain’s Zharnel Hughes ran a new lifetime best of 20.02s to take fifth.On Saturday, Bolt pipped Gatlin to victory over 100m – a result that could have been different had Gatlin’s technique not crumbled in the closing stages – but there was no doubt about the fastest man over 200m.It is the Jamaican’s third sprint double at World Championships, adding to his 100m-200m hauls in 2009 (Berlin) and 2013 (Moscow). Bolt also won the 200m in 2011 (Daegu), but was disqualified in the 100m final for a false start.  –Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM. Our hashtag is #JoySportslast_img read more
