Tedeschi Trucks opened the show, bringing a soulful blend of music new and old. TTB is touring behind their recently-released Let Me Get By album, playing a handful of music from the new release throughout their opening set.Widespread Panic came out next, firing on all cylinders for a rockin’ one-set performance. The show opened with John Bell on a “tiny gitar” aka a mandolin, for the performance of “Ain’t Life Grand.” They kept things rolling with “Weight of the World,” “Honky Red,” and more fan-favorites throughout the set. They also kept things really loose with a “Papa’s Home > Drumz > Machine Gun Jam > Papa’s Home” segment, putting the jam in their Southern jam set.With so much star power under one roof, a collaboration was inevitable. That came during the encore, when Derek Trucks emerged with Panic for versions of “Gimme” and “Surprize Valley.” The extended encore continued with Susan Tedeschi joining on “Me And The Devil,” before the band called on vocalists Alecia Chakour and Mark Rivers for a grand finale version of “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.” The Rolling Stones cover was a perfect finale to a great evening of music.
In an awe inspiring story of giving back to society, Dr. Bella Bello Bitugu, a former student of the Keta Senior High Technical School (KETASCO) and currently the Director of Sports of the Sports Directorate, University of Ghana Legon has fulfilled a long desire of making a significant contribution to his alma mater with the official commissioning of a sports court named after him (Dr. Bitugu Multipurpose Sports Court) at Keta, Volta region on Friday, 22nd March, 2019.A 1983 graduate of KETASCO, Dr. Bitugu is the current Chairman of The International Scientific Network for Sport for Development and Peace. He has served and continues to serve in various international roles as an academic (University of Innsbruck, Applied University of Kufstein, University of Krems an der Donau, all in Austria). He also worked and continues to work as an expert and consultant for the UN, Africa Union, the Commonwealth, UEFA, FIFA, European Union, the Austrian Government, the Government of Ghana and selected African and European NGOs and institutions.A role model for sports and education, especially for the youth, Dr. Bella has had a passion to come back to his roots and give back to the society that helped shape his early beginnings. This was a crowning moment of years of hard work and perseverance.The multipurpose court is first of its kind in Ghana for a second cycle institution in terms of size, purpose and funding worth an estimated GH 167,000. Dr. Bitugu Multipurpose Sports Court was constructed with funds from the Austrian Ministry of Sports, supported by the 1976 KETASCO Year Group, businessman and philanthropist Dr. Dan Mckorley (Macdan), Brigadier-General Dr. Chris Agbeka, Dr. Saviour Badohu and other individuals from the 76 and 83 Old Student Unions, among others. Welcoming dignitaries, chiefs, students and staff of the school, the headmaster of Keta Secondary School Mr. Charles Agbakey expressed his gratitude to all who had contributed to the success of the project. “I want to express our sincere gratitude to Dr. Bella and all other contributors who made sure that this project did not stall,” he said. The project coordinator Rev. Herbert Nuworkpor, could not hide his elation at the completion of the project having spent much time and energy on it. He declared, at long last the battle has ended!!!!”At long last the battle is over and Ketasco has overcome an infrastructural deficit. The project was made much bigger than originally projected which meant more funds were required. At the official commissioning ceremony, it was revealed to the admiration of all that the court had been named after Dr. Bella Bello Bitugu.Dr. Bitugu played a pioneering role in the construction of the court, directly and indirectly, sourcing for the necessary funding for the project. It was announced that the Ministry of Sports Austria had contributed about 80 per cent of the total cost of the project while some groups and individuals had also made some contributions whose names are acknowledged on the official plaque in front of the court.Dr. Bella rolled back the years and told the gathering about his early beginnings at Keta.“I was once here at Ketasco. In house 1, Quao House…Sports is supposed to bring people together and create a holistic and well-fashioned person for tolerance, understanding, time management, focus and perseverance,…qualities hardly taught in the classroom” he said to wild applause from the student body. He continued, “Ketasco has made me who I am today. I started by contributing in various forms to the school including books, internet, sports kits etc. I think we should give back to where we came from. I want to say thank you to my juniors and seniors, teachers and everyone.”“I am here to tell you that the court is ready to be used. I am very happy and this journey was a very long journey. This was a struggle. I see this as another favour from our God. Please note also that schools around as well as the community also have the right to use the court. The school management should design a procedure for outsiders to have easy access to the court.”Spurred on by their latest infrastructural addition, some students of KETASCO took to the court to showcase their skills in a special handball contest.Dr. Bitugu urged them to “Become the champions of basketball, volleyball, handball, netball, tennis and allow others from outside to use the court so Keta becomes a base to showcase Development through Sports… And he had a special message to the Austrian Ministry of Sports with whose support the project materialized.“I want to thank the Austrian Ministry of Sports, the Austrian Government and VIDC, Vienna and all the people involved in getting us here,” he said.The Dr. Bitugu Multipurpose Sports Court is well equipped to host the major indoor events such as basketball, handball, volleyball, badminton, table tennis among others.The entire South Zone Schools and Colleges Sports Association and Volta Region stand to benefit from the use of the facility. It appears the commissioning of the facility has come at the right time to solve a major infrastructural deficit and hundreds if not thousands of school children would benefit from the use of the Dr. Bitugu Multipurpose Sports Court well into the near future. —

0Shares0000Cristiano Ronaldo training with the Portugal squad near Moscow this week as they prepare for their World Cup clash with Uruguay © AFP / JUAN MABROMATASOCHI, Russian Federation, Jun 29 – The man who has marshalled the best defence in the World Cup so far will relish the task of trying to stop his old foe Cristiano Ronaldo when Uruguay and Portugal meet in Sochi on Saturday.The Madrid derby comes to the shores of the Black Sea in the last 16 with Uruguayan captain Diego Godin, of Atletico, and his club team-mate Jose Maria Gimenez coming up against Real and Portugal’s five-time Ballon d’Or winner. It will be a fascinating battle at the Fisht Stadium with Ronaldo, at 33, enjoying his best World Cup but Uruguay the only side to come through the group stage in Russia without conceding a goal.Godin is an expert at keeping clean sheets, as the leader of an Atletico defence that is the most formidable in the European club game — they kept 34 in all competitions last season — and of a Uruguay side that has not conceded a goal in 2018 in six games.Ronaldo, though, has already scored four times at this World Cup, including a hat-trick on his last visit here when Portugal drew 3-3 with Spain. That means he has 85 international goals, more than any other male European player in history.In the last two years, he has scored two hat-tricks for Real against Godin’s Atletico, having also emerged victorious in two Madrid derby Champions League finals.– More in their locker –But the rugged and brave Godin, who needed reconstructive dental surgery after having three teeth punched out in an aerial challenge with Valencia’s goalkeeper earlier this year, has succeeded in muzzling Ronaldo on plenty other occasions at club level going back almost a decade.Ronaldo wins a header in front of Godin in last year’s Champions League semi-final between Atletico Madrid and Real © AFP / JAVIER SORIANO“Godín is a star. He defends, commands, scores goals, wins titles, and does not miss a game,” said Diego Maradona recently.On Saturday, Gimenez — who scored Uruguay’s late winner against Egypt — is set to rejoin Godin in central defence after missing the 3-0 victory over Russia due to injury.Ronaldo, meanwhile, will look to get back among the goals having had a penalty saved in Portugal’s 1-1 draw with Iran. That, and the VAR-awarded late spot-kick for the Iranians, condemned the defending European champions to this tie rather than a meeting with the hosts in Moscow.Portugal surely would have preferred that, for while Uruguay continue to produce tough centre-backs, they are by no means completely reliant on them.This is a side with excellent, Italian-based midfielders in Rodrigo Bentancur, Lucas Torreira and Matias Vecino. And up front they boast two of the greatest goal-scorers of their generation in Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani.Suarez might lack the same sharpness of old, but he has still scored twice in Russia. One more and he will equal 1950 World Cup-winner Oscar Miguez’s Uruguayan record of eight goals at the tournament.– Overachievers –“They are a typical South American side,” said Portugal coach Fernando Santos.Captain Godin celebrates with Edinson Cavani after the Paris Saint-Germain striker scored in Uruguay’s 3-0 win over the hosts Russia © AFP / Fabrice COFFRINI“It’s not just in this World Cup that they have not been conceding goals. It has been like that for the whole of 2018. Oscar Tabarez is the longest-serving international manager. That means he has a very strong relationship with his players.”These two countries with a combined population of 13.5 million have long been overachievers on the international scene — the last decade under Tabarez has seen two-time former winners Uruguay reach one World Cup semi-final and win one Copa America, while Portugal triumphed at Euro 2016.And the Uruguayans hold their opponents in equally high regard, conscious that Ronaldo is supported by younger talents like Bernardo Silva and Goncalo Guedes.“We will mark him with the same respect we mark everyone, despite him being a superstar,” said Sebastian Coates of Ronaldo. “You don’t prepare a match just looking at one player.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
