OBITUARY: Woman who took roles that challenged society’s rules on sexual conduct is recalled as a “no problem” star. By Jill Lawless THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LONDON – Deborah Kerr, who shared one of Hollywood’s most famous kisses while portraying an Army officer’s unhappy wife in “From Here to Eternity” and danced with the Siamese monarch in “The King and I,” has died. She was 86. “I have never had a fight with any director, good or bad,” she said toward the end of her career. “There is a way around everything if you are smart enough.” She was invited to Hollywood in 1946 to play in “The Hucksters” opposite Clark Gable. She went on to work with virtually all the other top American actors and with many top directors, including John Huston, Otto Preminger and Elia Kazan. Tired of being typecast in ladylike roles, she rebelled to win a release from her MGM contract and get the role of Karen Holmes in “From Here to Eternity.” Playing the Army officer’s sex-starved wife in a fling with Lancaster’s Sgt. Warden opened up new possibilities for Kerr. She played virtually every part imaginable from murderer to princess to a Roman Christian slave to a nun to adulteress. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

For many she will be remembered best for her kiss with Burt Lancaster as waves crashed over them on a Hawaiian beach in the wartime drama “From Here to Eternity.” Kerr’s roles as forceful, sometimes frustrated women pushed the limits of Hollywood’s treatment of sex on the screen during the censor-bound 1950s. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences nominated Kerr six times for best actress, but never gave her an Academy Award until it presented an honorary Oscar in 1994 for her distinguished career as an “artist of impeccable grace and beauty, a dedicated actress whose motion picture career has always stood for perfection, discipline and elegance.” She had the reputation of a “no problem” actress.
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Ohio’s county Farm Bureaus won eight of the 24 County Activities of Excellence awards presented by the American Farm Bureau.The awards celebrate unique, local, volunteer-driven programming and serve as models of innovation for local program development. The winning counties receive a grant to fund participation in the Farm Bureau CAE Showcase at the 2020 American Farm Bureau Annual Convention and IDEAg Trade Show in Austin, Texas in January. AFBF received more than 100 entries across all membership categories. “For Ohio to lead the way again with CAE winners speaks to the hard work and commitment of our county Farm Bureaus,” said Paul Lyons, vice president of membership for Ohio Farm Bureau. “These award-winning local community efforts being recognized on a national level is quite an accomplishment and we couldn’t be more proud of our 12 county winners.” Ohio winners were: Ashland, Wayne, Medina, Holmes: Safe Farms FacilityCurrent agricultural safety training sites in the state are limited due to inclement weather, size restrictions and high demand. Four county Farm Bureaus developed a partnership with a local Regional Training facility which is a nonprofit organization focused on educating first responders. The new Safe Farms Facility will offer training for grain entrapment/awareness and operations, confined space, rope rescue, high angle rescue, electrical emergencies, and pre-planning structures/building construction.Ashtabula: County Ag DayOver 1,025 first graders, educators and chaperones from all school districts and several home schools in the county were guided to interactive educational stations to learn about fruits, vegetables, gardening, livestock, grains, dairy products, alternative agriculture, farm machinery, and a MyPlate experience to guide them on a healthy nutrition path. The primary goal of this event was to educate first graders on where their food comes from and to showcase the different types of agricultural commodities which are being produced in the county and state.Belmont: School backpack programStudents are in need of food on the weekends when school meals are not being provided. For Belmont County, 260 backpacks need packaged with food each week and the schools expect this number to rise. County Farm Bureau trustees went into the community to ask for monetary donations, and letters were sent to Farm Bureau members within the county asking for their help. The county exceeded its $40,000 goal and the monies received were spent to package meals for this program. The funds are enough to provide meals for two years at the current need level.Carroll and Tuscarawas: Sowing the seeds for agriculture’s futureThrough a two-day field trip to educate about food, agriculture and environmental sciences careers, students took part in on-site demonstrations and were provided the opportunity to interact with the presenters, resulting in a better understanding about the jobs available. Students were also versed on what they will need to do to be prepared to pursue various career paths. Since many of these students had attended prior programs offered to educate them on the dangers of substance abuse, the event incorporated strategies on increasing students’ self- esteem.Highland: Ladies night outThe overall goal of this event is for Farm Bureau to host a fun evening of networking, shopping, and supporting local businesses while catering to female members with an educational component. Utilizing a large barn on the fairgrounds, a wide variety of vendor booths were set up at one location for a more enjoyable shopping experience for attendees. Raffle tickets were sold for approximately 25 different items to raise funds for a local charitable organization.Paulding, Putnam, Van Wert, Allen: Agricultural district sign up daysTaking a proactive approach to help members protect themselves from legal battles from a potential “rights of nature” initiative, Farm Bureau decided to hold Ag District Sign Up Days. These sign up days gave county Farm Bureau members a chance to learn more about the initiative and how it might have impacted their farm and what Ag Districts could do for them. Each county worked with its county auditor and Ohio State University Extension to give informative presentations, and there were multiple computers, printers and workers set up to help attendees complete their Ag District applications correctly.Ross: MADE on the farmThe county Farm Bureau saw the growing problem of substance abuse and lack of local resources to address the issue and took action with Drug Free Clubs of America. M.A.D.E. (My Attitude Determines Everything), a nationally recognized drug prevention and education program for youth. There are eight local M.A.D.E. chapters in the county. Trustees saw the success of M.A.D.E. programming and resolved to raise funds to support local chapters with an annual M.A.D.E. on the Farm fundraiser event.Warren: Feed our neighbors support our futureThe county Farm Bureau wanted to find a creative solution to be a contributor to the 4-H sale at the fair and at the same time help a larger group of people. They created a new program called, “Feed Our Neighbors Support Our Future.” This program encouraged new businesses to participate in the hog sale by also giving them the option to donate the hog they purchased at the auction to a food bank. This innovative program helped solve two major issues: inviting new businesses in a rapidly urban-growing county to participate in an agriculturally focused 4-H auction and helping a rapidly growing population of people living in poverty.
Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has told the depositors of the scam-hit PMC Bank that he would discuss the issue of their distress with Prime Minister Narendra Modi when he meets the latter on October 13. A group of Punjab and Maharashtra Cooperative (PMC) Bank customers met Mr. Fadnavis on Friday after an election rally he addressed here to campaign for BJP candidate and sitting MLA Sanjay Kelkar, who is contesting from Thane City constituency. Aggrieved depositors put forth their woes to the CM, who gave them a hearing, but said he could not give them any assurance as the Model Code of Conduct was in force.Mr. Fadnavis said he would be meeting Mr. Modi on October 13, and he had already prepared a brief on the PMC Bank issue for the meeting.“After the elections on October 21,we will follow up on this issue and ensure that the bank is bailed out at any cost. It will not meet the same fate as the other co-operative banks,” he said. PMC Bank is facing a crisis after an alleged ₹4,500 crore scam came to light last month. The RBI had capped withdrawals from the bank at ₹1,000 and later increased it to ₹25,000 following protests by depositors.The bank had allegedly lent over 70% of its ₹ 9,000 crore in loans to near-bankrupt realty player HDIL.

WASHINGTON — Not even the New York Mets’ stopper could bail out a suddenly stagnant offense.Jonathon Niese lasted just four innings in his shortest outing since last June in the Mets’ 5-2 loss to the Washington Nationals on May 16.“He certainly wasn’t in a great rhythm when the game started, I didn’t think,” Manager Terry Collins said of Niese, who allowed all five runs, three earned. “We know Jon Niese (2-3) is a guy that, when things don’t go good, he’s one of those guys who will step up and put an end to it.”The Mets snapped a 22-inning scoreless streak, their second longest of the season, with two runs in the fifth off Nationals starter Tanner Roark (3-1).But Daniel Murphy missed a ninth-inning tying home run by inches, sending the Mets to their third straight loss and their ninth in a row against the Nationals.“I thought it had a chance,” said Murphy, who instead watched as Jayson Werth made a leaping grab at the wall to preserve Rafael Soriano’s ninth save. “In my heart of hearts, I knew it was going to be close. He crowded me just a little bit. He got it on me just a hair.”Niese allowed eight hits and two walks, and threw 84 pitches in his shortest outing since June 20, 2013 at Atlanta, when he left after 3 1-3 innings due to injury.Tyler Moore had two hits and drove in a pair of runs, and Scott Hairston had an RBI double and a single for Washington, which scored three runs in the first and two in the third.The Mets’ defense hurt Niese early as the first three Nationals hitters reached safely and scored. After Denard Span singled, third baseman David Wright misplayed Anthony Rendon’s grounder for an error.Werth then singled home Span, and Washington added two more runs on a sacrifice fly by Wilson Ramos and a fielder’s choice grounder from Moore that might have been a double play. But the ball was bobbled briefly by second baseman Murphy.“David misplays a ball, I misplay a double-play ball, so we kind of put him into trouble,” Murphy said of Niese. “I thought he settled down nicely after that.”With two outs in the third, Hairston doubled home Ramos and scored on a single by Moore to make it 5-0.“Bad pitch selection poorly executed,” said Niese, who saw Hairston send a 1-2 fastball into the left-center gap. “I wish I had that back, it would be different.”Following consecutive shutout losses to the Yankees and four scoreless innings against Roark, the Mets finally broke through.Lucas Duda opened the fifth with a single and went to third on Anthony Recker’s double off the wall. Duda scored on a groundout by Ruben Tejada and Eric Young’s double brought home Recker to pull New York within 5-2.Then with two outs in the ninth, Juan Lagares and Young both walked, bringing up Murphy. He hit Soriano’s first-pitch fastball deep to right. Just not deep enough.“I thought that was a homer when he hit it,” Collins said. “I thought it was farther than that. Obviously on the replay it was right next to the fence, still over the fence, but I thought he hit it better than that.”The Mets finished 1 for 7 with runners in scoring position.The game was delayed briefly when a fan came onto the field near the Nationals’ dugout and ran from first base around to home with one out in the ninth. He was tackled by a security person just behind home plate, drawing cheers from the crowd.(IAN QUILLEN)TweetPinShare0 Shares

Cabinet has received a submission from the Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries, seeking to reverse plans to sell the Agricultural Marketing Corporation (AMC) complex on Spanish Town Road in Kingston. The complex was previously used to package exports and process produce for local distribution. Portfolio Minister, Hon. Audley Shaw, who says the nine-acre property was put up for sale in January 2016, reiterated plans to transform the complex into a modern agro-processing facility. Story Highlights Cabinet has received a submission from the Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries, seeking to reverse plans to sell the Agricultural Marketing Corporation (AMC) complex on Spanish Town Road in Kingston.Portfolio Minister, Hon. Audley Shaw, who says the nine-acre property was put up for sale in January 2016, reiterated plans to transform the complex into a modern agro-processing facility.The complex was previously used to package exports and process produce for local distribution.“We are creating a modern agro-processing centre [under] a public-private partnership [arrangement so] that every young person who wants factory space will be able to get it at the AMC. We need to create the factory and refrigeration space,” he said.The Minister was speaking at the 2019 Jamaica 4-H Clubs National Achievement Expo, at the Denbigh Agricultural Showground in May Pen, Clarendon, on April 5.Mr. Shaw indicated that other agro-processing centres will be established across the island.Among these, he said, are GraceKennedy Limited’s establishment of a food-processing centre at the Denbigh showground; the old National Meat and Food Distributors facility in Lydford, St. Ann, which will also serve as a logistics centre; and a facility in Williamsfield, Manchester.“There will also be establishments in the west, because places like Caribbean Producers Jamaica (CPJ) want to come on board to work with us in processing as well,” the Minister added.Meanwhile, Mr. Shaw congratulated the Jamaica 4-H Clubs for its role in promoting agriculture among the youth, noting that it has provided scholarships valued approximately $70 million over the past three years.“It has disbursed 600 bursaries and scholarships to students pursuing agriculture at the secondary and tertiary level,” he pointed out.The Jamaica 4-H Clubs movement is the second largest globally, behind the United States of America, with approximately 1,050 clubs and over 11,000 members.Meanwhile, Mr. Shaw has endorsed a suggestion by the organisation’s Executive Director, Dr. Ronald Blake, for Jamaica to adopt new food sources as part of the thrust towards achieving greater food security.“I think this needs to be looked at carefully. We need to have an open mind on this,” the Minister said.Dr. Blake, in his address, announced that for the Expo’s staging in 2020, a prize will be awarded to the parish introducing a new food source.He also highlighted several of the organisation’s recent achievements, notably the provision of scholarships to students attending the College of Agriculture, Science and Education (CASE), training initiatives, and the establishment of 567 school gardens.The Executive Director expressed gratitude to the Government of Japan for funding support, through the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), to transform 70 school gardens into climate-smart plots under the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP).“I am (also) happy that our Youth Entrepreneur Programme is doing well, as we have recruited 155 young Jamaicans and we are going to be training them in partnership with HEART/Trust NTA, which is investing over $30 million in the programme,” he said.Dr. Blake informed that once the youngsters demonstrate a penchant for farming, they will be “assisted with the venture capital inputs to start their own businesses”.The Expo, which was held under the theme ‘Eco-based Adaptation Strategies: a 4-H Response to Climate-Smart Agriculture’, saw the crowning of the 2018 National 4-H Boy and Girl of the Year, each of whom received a grand cash prize of $1 million.Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries Minister, Hon.
