first_img100-year-old Ray Jenkins NamedVermont’s Outstanding Older WorkerESSEX JUNCTION, Vt. – H.F. ‘Ray’ Jenkins, who turns 100 years old on Tuesday, July 18, has been named Vermont’s Outstanding Older Worker by the Experience Works Prime Time Awards Program.The honor, presented to one working individual over age 65 in each state, is given by the non-profit organization, based in Arlington, Va., to highlight people who are still contributing to their communities and keeping themselves healthy by working.The announcement of the award was made by Vermont’s Lt. Gov. Brian Dubie on Saturday, July 15 at a special open house held at the Champlain Valley Exposition held to honor Jenkins as he approached his century-mark birthday.These award recipients are selected through an extensive grassroots effort in every state, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Selection committees look for individuals who best reflect the characteristics of leadership, lifelong learning, mentoring and community service, and who continue to make meaningful contributions in the work force.Jenkins, who lives in Colchester, retired as an engineer from IBM when he was 65. He has worked at the Champlain Valley Exposition for 27 years and is currently Maintenance Coordinator, working 40 hours a week as a seasonal employee (March 15-October 15). He oversees the work of three employees and coordinates the efforts to maintain the Exposition’s fleet of trucks, tractors, mowers, golf carts and other maintenance equipment.Jim Gometz, Director of Operations for the Exposition, described Jenkin’s work ethic as amazing. His ability to see the whole picture, isolate a problem and then come up with a workable solution is one of his greatest strengths. Gometz spearheaded the nomination effort earlier this year and feels the Experience Works made the right choice. “Ray has truly earned this honor. He is loved and respected by all his fellow workers and the community of friends he has made over the years working at the Exposition.”The Outstanding Older Worker awards will be presented to Jenkins and winners from the other states in Washington D.C. in October.For more information about Experience Works,visit www.experienceworks.org(link is external)last_img read more

Photos: Andre Ayew scores, Swansea draw Chelsea at the Bridge

first_imgGhana’s Andre Ayew had a fantastic debut for Swansea as they picked up a point at the Stamford Bridge on Saturday.The player was the only one of Garry Monk’s new signings to be selected to start the Premier League season opener and impressed from the outset, even though he was being marked by his former Marseille team-mate Cesar Azpilicueta.Champions Chelsea had gone ahead through Oscar when, just minutes later, the Swans were level. Ayew showed his predatory instinct to slot home after Thibault Courtois made a stunning save to deny Bafetimbi Gomis.Gary Cahill blocked Ayew’s first effort but the Ghana star was on hand to fire home the rebound.Sadly for the Swans, they were back behind less than two minutes later as Willian scored a fortunate goal, which ballooned off Federico Fernandez and gave the hosts a 2-1 half time lead.The game finished 2-2 as Bafetimbi Gomis leveled through a penalty in the pulsating game. Courtois had a day to forget as he was sent off. The Belgian rushed out to close down Gomis as he chased Jonjo Shelvey’s lofted through ball. But after the French forward knocked it round Courtois, the Belgian keeper dangled his right leg out and tripped Gomis.He was dismissed as Michael Oliver pointed to the spot.Andre Ayew made the move from Marseille in a highly-publicized move that saw him become the Swans marquee signing. On the live Sky Sports coverage of the game, Theirry Henry praised Ayew for his predatory instinct, saying: “He is not a winger, he wants to get in the action.”He took the goal really well.” Swansea’s next game is against Newcastle on August 15.Starting XIsSwans: Fabianski, Naughton, Fernandez, Williams (C), Taylor, Ki Sung-Yueng, Shelvey, Sigurdsson, Ayew, Montero, Gomis.Subs: Nordfeldt, Rangel, Bartley, Tabanou, Cork, Routledge, Eder.Chelsea: Courtois; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry (c), Azpilicueta; Matic, Fabregas; Willian, Oscar, Hazard; Diego Costa.
