#JaVotes2016: Disabled at risk of being disenfranchised

first_imgThe disabled and elderly in eastern St Thomas have been finding it challenging to cast their votes, as nothing has been put in place to facilitate them accessing the polling stations. One such voter, 80-year-old Zeris Baker, who was pushed in a wheelchair to Port Morant Primary and Junior High, which housed six polling stations, had to be lifted in order to cast her vote. “They could put up a ramp and make it a little easier for persons with disability to come out and vote. But a so wi get it, so we have to take it,” Baker, who almost fell as she tried to stand said. Baker, who has a heart condition, said she had not intended to come out and vote, but was convinced to do so. “Mi sick wid mi heart. Doctor say mi not to tired, vex or frighten out miself and if I can help it I muss not stress and mi alone not to be at home,” Baker revealed. “But my friends call me and said they were going to send a taxi for me and I said I couldn’t come, but they said they were sending it, so I came.” The Jamaica Labour Party’s Delano Seiveright is trying to wrestle the seat away from the People’s National Party’s Fenton Ferguson.last_img read more

ISSA plays down Taylor’s call for schoolgirl cricket

first_imgCompetitions Officer of the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA) George Forbes says that while the idea is noble, it is currently not feasible for female cricket to be played at the local high-school level. This follows calls made by West Indies Women captain Stafanie Taylor. This, he says, is as a result of the current lack of interest by high school girls to play the sport, as well as funding, which, he says, will be key if the situation is to be changed. “It’s not feasible for us to play a girl cricket competition, as currently there are few girls and schools who have expressed an interest in playing,” stated Forbes. “In fact, I don’t know any school that has more than two or three girls who are interested in playing cricket. “Then there is the matter of funding. We don’t even have enough money to play age-group cricket for our boys, much less to take on schoolgirls cricket at the moment,” he added. ISSA currently stages cricket competitions for high school boys at the Under-14, Under-16 and Under-19 levels. Girls, however, are allowed play in two of these competitions – the Under-14 and Under-16. But they are barred from participating at the Under-19 levels due to what ISSA expressed as associated “dangers”. TAYLOR A BENEFICIARY Meanwhile, Forbes, who pointed out that Taylor herself was a beneficiary of playing at the Under-14 and Under-16 levels, said his association would be open to supporting a feasibility study to ascertain whether schoolgirl cricket was viable. “It is the duty and responsibility of the Jamaica Cricket Association (JCA), not ISSA, to do such a feasibility study to determine whether there are enough girls and schools available to participate,” he said. “ISSA acts on the interest of students wanting to play a sport, and, until there is evidence to suggest same, we can’t act. “If after their study and the JCA then comes to us and say we have identified girls in four or five schools who are interested, then it would be something that we would be willing to look into.” Taylor, in the aftermath of West Indies Women ICC World Twenty20 triumph last week, stated: “We need to go into the schools and try to get girls to come out. “I think we do have girls who are interested. It’s just that you don’t have anyone to push it.” – Jermaine Lannamanlast_img read more
