OWLS HAVE PLANNING PERMISSION GRANTED M.V. MOBILITY Mandaric added: “We are very proud here at Sheffield Wednesday to be part of such an important project in this community. “There aren’t enough words for me to describe this, especially when any community would be delighted to have something like this. “It is something that is not being judged by money and it will not single out the people that have money or don’t have money. It’s a totally social environment for people young and old to try to increase the quality of their lives.” With planning permission granted, the build is expected to begin this summer, with

a completion date around the middle of next year. The Sheffield Wednesday Football Club Community Programme is the football club’s charitable arm, established to support the development of cohesive communities

around South Yorkshire and increase engagement, training provision and support amongst its residents, working across the four key themes of health, education, participation and social inclusion.

SNODGRASS

I don’t understand fast food. I’ve been eating it for years but I seem to be getting slower and slower. I was at a wedding yesterday, and when the vicar asked “Is there anyone here who knows of any unlawful impediment as to why these two people should not be joined in holy matrimony speak now or forever hold your peace”, I spoke up. “The brides been sleeping with the best man for months” I announced, sending shockwaves through the church. It may have been a bit drastic, and a complete lie, but at least it got me out of getting married. ‘MP’s suggest reusing your bath water to help drought’. I tried it... My cup of tea tasted bloody awful. I was talking to the bloke in the mobile phone shop earlier about taking out a contract. I explained to him that it was for the wife, as she’s always on the phone and costs me far too much money. The contract was agreed and I left satisfied. It’s amazing the places you bump into professional hitmen these days. Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall, All the Kings horses and all the Kings men, Couldn’t put Humpty together again, As they had no method statement, risk assessment, permit to work or lifting plan. I was talking to a bloke in the pub. I said, “My mate watched the FA cup final in a box.” “Lucky b******d” he replied. “Lucky?” I said, “He’s the homeless guy who sits outside Currys.”

Weekly Psychic Article by Psychic Glynis

Questions and Answers about Spirituality PART 3 Q Why don’t we remember our past lives? A Now that would be mind blowing don’t you think? Say you had four previous past lives. Just imagine if in your past lives you were a thief, then your next life a judge, then a high bred lady and lastly a beggar. How would you handle all that knowledge?This is why we reincarnate into a different person each time. Watch out for the De Va Ju in your life, as it may provide a clue as to who you were previously. I find certain places attract me - for example Belgium and Whitby. I feel I have lived in these places before and I seem to know all the shortcuts through the alleys in Whitby.. Q When I die I want to donate my organs - will I know what’s happening? A This is a tricky question so I will say what I believe with the caveat that it is not written in stone. When we die our souls leave our physical body, which becomes just a shell. Do we really want to watch our organs removed from Heaven? I personally would because it would me great pleasure to save someone’s life. Hopefully it would enrich their life and enable them to do the things they have always wanted to do. As to the question therefore I believe it will be your choice. Q What are the Akashic Records? A Akashic is a Sanskrit word meaning `Sky` or boundless space. The Akasha Records are a collection of Mystic knowledge that has existed since the

beginning of time. The records are said to document everyone’s experience since creation. The Akasha is available everywhere, the flashes of intuition and knowing hunches that occur everyday are glimpses into the divine wisdom contained in the Akashic Records. Q What are Negative Energies? A I hear people say they have a negative energy attached to them. Psychics describe negative energies as a black aura but that is only an opinion. Unless the psychic can see and remove that black energy then that is open to debate. When clients come to see me I can see their aura - however I never see black - I see a grey aura. People carrying a grey aura are feeling low and everything is negative in their lives. If you are feeling positive in your life then no black energy can attach itself to you. Dark cannot enter light without it being destroyed. If you do feel you have an attachment then look to yourself and see what is horrible and grey in your life. A clear quartz removes negative energies from your life .Always wear it and place quartz around your home. Q Why do I keep having a reoccurring dream? A We are in an altered state when we sleep. The conscious mind is quieter but the subconscious is active. My belief is we are given messages via our sub conscious. Sometimes life events affect us and this is carried into our dream pattern. Also if we are wanting a question answered we will get the answer through our dreams. For a psychic reading please visit my website www.psychicglynis.com or text 078632353

She - The Mercury’s Monthly Health, Beauty, Fashion & More Feature

Health, Beauty, Fashion, Home & More Hello Ladies, and welcome to my very first SHE page. These pages are dedicated to all us women out there, and everything we love, like Fashion, Health, Beauty, Home, and Travel, which pretty much covers everything really!! I would love to hear from you, with any tips, advice, good buys, bargains, what’s on, anything that will help build this page into an interesting read. You can email me, mandy@mercurynewspaper. co.uk with your stories, and please don’t be shy; this is your chance to get things off your chest, or shout about some well deserved recognition. Well we have had an extremely wet April, and no doubt you are all just as fed up as I am, and need a boost to brighten up these dark days. Whether it’s a new haircut, a beauty treatment, a commitment to losing weight, a new outfit or booking a holiday, all these things really do get then adrenalin going and make you feel so much better. I even get excited buying a new lipstick. Now, you may think I am mad, but it was my birthday recently, and I asked the man in my life to buy me a course of Personal Training Sessions as my present. This was the boost I needed. Bless him he did, and do you know I cannot wait to get started. Whatever floats your boat I guess, but I did get some other nice girly things from him too so it wasn’t all torture. I have been a gym member on and off for years, haven’t we all? But I am on a mission at the moment to lose a stone in time for my holiday in July, so watch this space and I will blog my progress. Alternatively if you have any success stories, just like Aletia featured in our spotlight, then email me, I would love to hear from you. Prints are going to big this year apparently, so be brave and don’t be afraid to try them out, and lots of bling, but not too much at once. Jewellery makes a statement; Chunky, Tribal or metallic are all in this year.

How you wear something is just as important as what you wear, so no matter how good it looks on the hanger, if it doesn’t fit in all the right places, don’t buy it. You will regret it. And probably only wear it the once. Colourful shoes are huge this year, you can get a pair in every colour, in all shapes and heights, but only if you can walk in these killer heels. Ballet shoes are big in the summer, but if your’e like me, it has to be heels in the evening, not flats. If you really fancy a confidence boost, you need to come along to the Sitwell Arms at Renishaw, to the Dirty Dancing ladies event, it’s a fantastic night out, lots of girly fun and you come home with a complimentary gift bag. This is your chance to dress up, learn some sexy dance moves and enjoy a fun night out. See the main advert for more details, but places are selling fast so don’t miss out Hope to see you there, bye for now

ALETIAʼS STORY

It took me a couple of months to pluck up courage to go to a Weight Watchers meeting, because I was frightened of failing. I’d tried dieting before but the weight had always gone back on. I saw a photo of myself in the Christmas time and I was shocked. I was smiling on the outside but miserable on the inside, and I knew I deserved better and it was time to shine! At the time I was a single mum to 3 year old twins and being their primary carer, I knew I had to do something about my weight and my health, not only for my benefit but also for the benefit of my children too. To be there for their futures. At that first meeting I was at rock bottom. When my Leader made me feel at home, I burst into tears. But something clicked. I knew with her support, that of the group and the Weight Watchers tools I was going to lose weight for the last time. My Starting weight was 20 stone 1 and a half lbs and I am now at goal having lost 9 stone 9lbs. Losing all that weight has meant I have so much more energy and can do so much more with my family. Weight Watchers truly changed my life and because of that I am now a Weight Watchers leader myself and run 5 meetings a week in Sheffield. If you’re ready to start your own journey then come and join me. Weight Watchers, Because it works!

NEWS & INFORMATION

CHEAP CHIPS AS PART OF KITCHEN NIGHTMARES SUPERMARKET ROADSHOW

South Yorkshire shoppers can pick up cheap oven chips, as part of a major fire service campaign to drive down kitchen fires. South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue, in partnership with The Co-operative Group, will be handing out money off coupons alongside fire safety advice at a dozen food stores across the county. The events throughout May and June form part of the fire service’s latest efforts to reduce cooking related fires, which account for half of all the house fires it attends. The county’s firefighters tackled more than 300 cooking related house fires last year, making up 50 per cent of all the house fires in South Yorkshire. Many of those injuries were caused by old fashioned chip pans, which is why SYFR is using money off vouchers for oven chips to encourage shoppers to chuck theirs away. A similar initiative last year helped to reduce cooking fires in South Yorkshire by 13 per cent. Diane Malpass, head of community safety, said: “Cooking remains the biggest cause of accidental fires in the home, which is why we’re holding these events to speak to shoppers about basic good practice in the kitchen. “It’s perhaps hard to believe, in this day and age, that people still use chip pans. But our data shows they remain a real danger. You wouldn’t fill a container with flammable liquid and light a flame under it, yet using a chip pan poses the same kind of risk. “Oven chips or thermostat controlled fryers are much safer, meaning there is no need for people to continue putting their lives at risk in this way. Fire service staff will be visiting locations across South Yorkshire, including a dozen Cooperative Food stores- in Armthorpe, Bessacarr, Cantley, Edlington, Firth Park, Southey Green, Firth Park, Gleadless, Greasborough, Mexborough, Southey Green, Stannington and Thurcroft. They will be handing out vouchers and meeting shoppers, giving them tips to stay safe in the kitchen, including: Prepare - Keep electrical leads and fabrics well away from the hob and never use a chip pan Watch- Keep an eye on cooking at all times and never, ever leave it unattended Switch- Switch off cooking appliances when you have finished cooking and before bed For more information on kitchen fire safety or for a full list of dates when fire service staff will be handing out vouchers in store, visit www.syfire.gov.uk At the events, shoppers will be able to pick up advice on staying safe in the kitchen, money off coupons for oven chips and the opportunity to receive a selection of free giveaways, in return for signing up to the organisation’s free monthly e-newsletter.

HEALTHWATCH

HealthWatch must be established by Local Authorities as defined in the Government’s Health and Social Care Bill. It will include Health for all ages, Social care adults, Voice and influence, Quality monitoring, Provide/ signpost information and NHS complaints advocacy. At our Members’ Meeting on 3 May, Kate Register, Sheffield City Council explained Sheffield’s draft vision. Sheffield HealthWatch will be a strong local consumer voice that makes a difference to Health and Social Care provision on behalf of the people of Sheffield. Sheffield HealthWatch will be a network of networks that builds on the work of LINk. It will expand and utilise the existing expertise of third sector organisations and groups of people in Sheffield. It will provide a mechanism for diverse voices across Sheffield to be heard and ensure that where there are people who are seldom heard, HealthWatch will provide innovative ways to gather and include their views. It will be a respected and credible organisation that is unafraid to challenge service providers and commissioners. It will bring together robust, evidence based local intelligence that influences key decision making for Health and social care. It will ensure that every individual who approaches HealthWatch for information and advice, receives timely and good quality information for HealthWatch or one of its signposting organisations. It will ensure complaints advocacy for NHS complaints is available for all Sheffield people who request that support. Sheffield HealthWatch will be known within the city with an excellent communications strategy.

WHAT CAN I DO COMMON DISEASES TO STOP WEEDS? Weeds are almost impossible to eradicate once they are growing through the roots of perennials, so target them early on. 1. Before creating the border try to eradicate the perennial weeds - roots and all - as far as you can. Thorough digging is the answer here. 2. After this, carefully remove annual weeds throughout the growing season. Do not hoe between perennials, as this can easily damage the roots of the plants. 3. Spread a layer of 3 to 5 cm of organic mulch on the soil between the plants to prevent weed seeds from germinating. Pre-packaged potting soil and compost are ideal for use as mulch and are guaranteed sterile. Ground elder, bindweed and horsetail are some of the most stubborn weeds, because each piece of root can grow into a complete plant again. By consistently and continuously hoeing everything that raises its head, you can ultimately eradicate them. You should regularly rake through gravel and chippings in order to disrupt weed growth. Back to top

MOSS IN THE LAWN Moss can be caused by: a. Shade; b. a section that is too damp; c. if there is too little air in the soil and the grass is cut too short. In these situations the grass struggles and will take a long time to recover. Moss grows much more quickly. Moss can be suppressed by generous feeding, amongst other things. The grass then grows so fast that the moss cannot compete. Lawns which suffer heavy traffic can be aerated by pricking holes in them with a garden fork. Brushing sharp sand into the holes keeps them functioning for longer.

The old adage that prevention is better than cure definitely rings true here. You can do a lot to prevent diseases in your plants. Plants which are happy are unlikely to sicken very quickly. Ensure good growing conditions for your plants, or better still: go for the right plant in the right place choose the plants which match the conditions in your garden. If, following your best efforts, plants nevertheless show signs of disease, it is best to obtain expert advice straightaway. Do this at your garden centre, through gardening magazines and clubs, gardening pages in newspapers or radio phone-ins. Consult books and the internet too

Here are a few pointers to help you get started if disease problems arise:

The Mercury Homes & Gardens Feature please

1. Roses With roses be particularly alert for black spot and mildew and combat these fungi as soon as they appear.

description to

2. Clematis Large-flowered Clematis in particular can suffer from wilt, a nasty disease which causes the shoots to die. Luckily they only do this above ground. Anything below ground remains healthy. This is why a Clematis is always planted a bit deeper than it is in the pot in which it was grown. If the disease strikes, it can regrow healthily out of the ground. Make sure you cut the diseased shoots back to ground level. 3. Fruit Fire blight is one of the most destructive disease in fruit trees. Pears are particularly prone to it. Sure signs of the disease are wilted, blackening twig ends. Dark-coloured, slightly sunken patches also appear on the trunk. Slime can sometimes ooze from the stems of wilted flowers (particularly during followon flowering in the summer) and leaves. Back to top Apples can be prone scab and mildew Silver leaf is the most common disease affecting plums. The upper surface of the leaf is loosened by this disease, allowing air to get underneath it. This gives it an unusual silver or lead-like discolouration of the leaf. It is an aggravating disease which can in time kill a tree. Gum formation can also be a problem in plums.

Vets advise all owners to get their pets vaccinated as a matter of course, yet around a fifth of dogs, over a quarter of cats and more than half of all rabbits have never received a primary course of vaccinations*, putting them at risk of life threatening illnesses. “Vaccination is a vital part of responsible pet ownership,” says PDSA Senior Veterinary Surgeon, Sean Wensley. “Every year vets treat pets suffering from illnesses that vaccinations could have prevented. It is heart-breaking for the owners, who in many cases simply didn’t appreciate the dangers facing their unvaccinated pets.” Diseases such as canine distemper, canine parvovirus, feline leukemia, cat flu, myxomatosis and rabbit haemorrhagic disease, can all be prevented, or the risks significantly reduced, by getting pets vaccinated. These preventable diseases can cause terrible suffering for pets and sadly, in many cases, prove to be fatal. Dogs can often have their first vaccinations from as early as six weeks of age, followed by a second set of injections a few weeks later, but ask your vet for advice regarding your own pet. Cats usually begin their vaccination course at 9 weeks of age, but, again, check with your vet. The sooner young pets are vaccinated, the sooner they can meet other animals outside their home, which is an important aspect of socialisation to ensure normal behavioural development. Rabbits are the UK’s third most popular pet, but they also come a firm third when it comes to preventive care and many owners simply don’t realise that rabbits should be vaccinated. Vaccinations can be given from around five weeks of age, and protect against two potentially fatal diseases: myxomatosis and rabbit haemorrhagic disease (RHD). Regular booster vaccinations are also necessary for all pets, as the body’s immune response gradually fades over time. Your vet will be able to advise you about this, especially if you have an older pet that has not been vaccinated for several years and needs to start the course again. This year, PDSA is again supporting Rabbit Awareness Week (15-22 September) and is encouraging all rabbit owners to find their nearest participating veterinary practice and take their rabbits along for a free health check. Participating practices can be found at www. rabbitawarenessweek.co.uk, where there is also lots of useful information about rabbit health and wellbeing. For more information on vaccinations for pets, download a free copy of PDSA’s Vaccinations leaflet at www.pdsa.org.uk/leaflets.

THE BATTLE FOR SHEFFIELD CASTLE 1644 The Molyneux Company of the Queens Lifeguard Regiment, a locally based Regiment of the Sealed Knot are proudly presenting the “Battle for Sheffield Castle 1644”. This exciting event will be taking place in Hillsborough Park, close to Hillsborough Library on the 19th and 20th May 2012. This will be an exciting prospect of 17th Century Soldiers helping raise money for 21st Century Soldiers. However, we do not glorify war, and at the end of each days battle we “raise the dead” to a round of applause. During this weekend of fun, there will be a “Living History Encampment” where you can meet members of the Sealed Knot who “Live the life of 17th Century Army camp followers and Officers alike”. There will be a number of displays throughout the day, culminating in an English Civil War battle re-enactment

between the armies of the King (Royalists) and the army of Parliament. The battle will have the excitement of cannon fire together with volleys of musket, not forgetting the hand to hand fighting between the blocks of Pike where anything can happen! The Living History will be open to the public from 10am, along with a funfair for small children,

CLUBHISTORIANS.CO.UK by Ruth Cherrington

Catching up with Old Comrades Perhaps it’s only to be expected that as ‘old comrades’ from the Second World War pass away (the Tommies from the First are sadly all gone), the clubs they established fade away as well. Many were the outcome of the desire of soldiers, and perhaps of their need, to hold onto the camaraderie of war -time when life was harsh and often short lived. Getting together with other ex-servicemen began after 1918 with many clubs established across the country by those who had survived the horrors. Most were open for others to join. After the WW2 more were set up and often there was affiliation to the CIU. Royal British Legion clubs could also opt to come under the arm of the CIU should members so wish. As the decades pass, so do the members and therefore the clubs, MAGIC AM by Trevor Thomas if we accept that course of events. In Liverpool, the Garston Old Imagine being one of the first Comrades Club has recently closed lucky people to set sail on board a new ship taking in new as well as the Woolton Royal sights and sounds.

Many clubs offer support and for injured service personnel through Trevor the Help for Heroes charity which has really grabbed the interest of club people who get up to all sorts to raise money. This is all to be commended and continued. But another way to help them and the wider community would be to keep the tradition of the clubs where there is a particular understanding of the needs and issues of returned service personnel. I’d rather there were no wars and no fighting- but whilst they still rage, those coming home need some form of refuge and clubs can play a big part here.

SHOCKOLADY 27/04/12 MOTORPOINT ARENA

REVIEW

Words by Katy Evans

Hold on to your neon flashing knee high boots, glittery eye shadows and sequin-clad skimpy leotards…Shockolady is coming to get you. Blasting her way onto the British clubbing scene, Russia’s very own pure pop vixen is ready to bolt her way into the charts with a brand new single, tour and Steps support experience all under her gold flashing sparkly waist belt…and who said power dressing was dead?! So before we get started, there are a few things you really should know about Shockolady. Number one, she’s currently on tour with British revival five piece Steps. Number two, the poor lass had to endure a full UK session with no other than Jedwood…live. And number three, the St Petersburg performer once covered T-Rex classic ‘Get it On’…and surprisingly didn’t murder it. O’h and she’s also massive in Germany… but so is a band called ‘Milking The Goat Machine’ so that really doesn’t count. ‘When I toured with Jedwood it was the most fun and opened hearted experience I’ve ever faced. For example, when you were coming to the back stage door to perform, Jedwood’s fans were already waiting for you for the signings, autographs, photos, everything. For Steps? Never can you see anybody at the stage door, before or after the tour. Different age group I don’t know?’ Whether this may be the case, Shockolady was pretty much the spot on support act for such a mixed bag of show attendees. Opening up with her unique take on ‘Get It On’ by Mark Bolan and co, the 5ft 3” performer is clearly a natural on the big stage. Not only does she know how to get the audience up on their feet, she’s a brave one to entertain a large majority of fans who’s primary aim is to see the headline act Steps. Evidently not fearing this, Shockolady does like any professional would and gives a tidy six song performance to her greatest ability. Speaking of her time on the road with headliners Steps, Shockolady can only sing their praises for a group with a string of consecutive top five chart hits. ‘I knew how massive (steps) were here, so when I knew I was supporting them I was so excited. I wanted to know more about the albums. I really enjoyed chatting with them and them to share their live experiences with me.’ A certified highlight of the performance came with the exclusive showing of Shockolady’s new song ‘I Like It Like That,’ a new avenue for the Russian star who has yet to collaborate with a British rapper. ‘(I like it like that) has been an interesting experience because it’s the first time I’ve ever done a track with a rapper. I’ve frankly never heard this kind of rapping, he’s kind of shooting from the gun. I remember the first time I heard it I was on tour and I thought O’h my gosh I like my song so much more! It was my first experience with collaborating with British song writers’ Check out the official website for Shockolady at www. shockolady.com for all the latest.

JAMIE JONES 28/04/12 THE PLUG

REVIEW Words by Jordan W - E

On Saturday 28th April 2012 the multifaceted tech house DJ, producer and co creator of the label Hot Creation with Lee Foss. Mr. Jamie Jones arrived in Sheffield to perform at Plug. Jamie has gone from London club resident in Fabric and Panarama Bar, to festival headliner in this summer’s Hideout Festival and Global Gatherings. Although he wasn’t able to bring the sun rays from his Ibiza jaunts, he was able to replicate his chilled rhythmic groove. Plug was filled to the rafters as Jamie single handily had the crowd at his mercy for most of the evening. In the last half of the evening he dropped his remix of Azari and iii Hungry for the Power only propelled the sell out Plug crowd into frenzy and left them wanting more. Being an avid follower of Jones, and clubber goer in Sheffield for several years, I firmly believe that Jones is one of the most successful DJ’s to grace the South Yorkshire lands.. Recognition soared within the music industry for his innovative sets and tight productions which reaped multiple awards. Named Best Dj by Mixmag and No 1 DJ of the Year by Resident Advisor, followed by Best Deep House DJ and remix of 2011at both DJ

It has been announced that Adam Yauch a.k.a. MCA of Beastie Boys has died of cancer aged forty seven. A tragic loss from one of the most influential hip hop rock groups to emerge from the 1980’s, this news came as a massive shock on 4th May with fans, musicians and industry professionals all emphasising their thoughts and kinds words to such a talented individual. Beastie Boys rapper Ad – Rock has spoken out about the huge loss of his former band mate on the groups highly viewed Tumblr page. Thanking all his friends and family for such love and support, Adam went onto say ‘…as you can imagine, sh*t is just screwed up right now. I’m glad to know that all the love that Yauch has put out into the world is coming right back at him.’ Chart topping rapper and world wide sensation Eminem has said in a recent press release that ‘Adam Yauch brought a lot of positivity into the world and I think it’s obvious to anyone how big of an influence the Beastie Boys were on me and so many others.’ Branded as the biggest selling rap group for over twenty years by the US Billboard, Beastie Boys have a collection of massive accolades along with awards and a hugely dedicated fan base since their formation in 1979. With their debut album ‘Licenced to Ill’ turning nine times multi platinum on 5th September 2001, Beastie Boys have sold over 40 million albums worldwide and achieved a string of number one hits across the globe. ‘You’ve Gotta Fight For Your Right To Party’ off the album has since been named in The Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame’s 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll, arguably one of the most notable tracks which has been covered by names from Coldplay, Blondie to Public Enemy and Kesha. Other tracks ‘Ch-Check It Out’ and ‘Sabotage’ all run much in the same vein and outline the bands humorously talented nature. Beastie Boys have racked up an impressive eight studio albums under their belt, all of which receiving huge critical acclaim. In 1998, the group won Best Rap Act at the MTV Europe Music Awards along with Video Vanguard Award at the MTV Video Awards in the same year. The three piece have four grammy’s to their name and having being nominated for over thirty awards throughout their life span make these rap legends one of the industry’s most influential acts. The final word comes from MCA’s biggest fan, Joel Madden of Good Charlotte who recently said that ‘…we wanted to dress like them, talk like them, and we wanted to make music like them…’ RIP Adam Yauch.

ARTICLE

round-up

by stuart renton It’s like all my Christmases have come at once this week, as “friend” to the nation, Kerry Katona, mistress of chavs and general “special” pharmaceuticals dispenser publically announced that Tulisa Contostavlos has no star quality. Still reeling from the news that she couldn’t be part of the Atomic Kitten reunion (at which the world breathed a collective sigh of relief), Katona, desperate for her next moment of fame is now resorting to taking pot shots at random celebrities to get her weekly press fix. Whether Contostavlos has any actual talent is a debate for another time (the answer is no), but it goes without saying that “Twinkle Twinkle” wallpaper has more star talent than Katona, who pointed the finger this week with the comment: ‘Without being rude, Tulisa has no star quality’. OK, let’s put this into perspective. On one hand we’ve got an X Factor judge who this week won FHM’s Sexiest Woman of the World 2012, has the current number one hit single, her own perfume range (which, unlike Katona, isn’t bottled from her own pores and sold on the black market) and is rarely out of the public eye, while on the other we have a drug-addled media whore whose only press attention comes from her own increasingly desperate insights into a private life no one cares about. I have just two issues with Katona’s statement. First, when anyone says ‘I don’t mean to be rude’ – it really means you damn well do intend to be rude, and, second, the irony of Katona saying another celebrity has no star quality was like saying Adolf Hitler was really just a misunderstood naughty boy and that whole thing with the Jews was just a horrible misunderstanding! It’ll probably wash over Tulisa’s head as she’s currently plastered all over the newspapers, unlike Katona, who is regularly pictured “plastered” in the newspapers… In other opinions, The Voice is supposedly about the singing, but it’s really about four judges with massively overinflated egos. It’s like a watered-down version of Britain’s Got Talent (but without the Botox). You have ninety seconds of singing and twenty minutes of pointless discussion with four people who clearly think a negative comment will destroy their career. “It was… pitchy”, Jessie J splurts out as though the words would infect the contestant with cancer. But if you thought Simon Cowell’s cronies were bad, The Voice judges are just weird. You’ve got Will I Am making nonsensical statements (which is really short of him being too afraid to say: ‘you’re crap, love’; you’ve got Jessie J spewing effusive praise on her acts and damnation on the rest, Lord Tom Jones name dropping at every opportunity (while failing to notice Death standing not far away and rubbing his skeletal fingers together gleefully), and Danny O’What’s-his-name alternating between bouts of apoplexy and gurning madly whenever the camera is pointed in his direction. In summary, it’s all gone a bit downhill, but kids, you too can have your own horrifically overhyped talent show, all for the bargain price of twenty million pounds. But if you take Katona with you, you can have it for fifty quid.

angler’s corner

PARKLANDS POND

DONCASTER

by Clint Walker

The last month has seen the release of some interesting bait products from a company I have an affiliation with. Devon based Pallatrax produce high quality baits with the emphasis on natural ingredients to complement what the fish we seek to catch actually eat, and three new products have been developed as additions to the range. First to be considered are the ‘Hidra’ baits which I’ve already mentioned as I’ve some good results when using them; dehydrated aquatic edibles are carefully prepared and packed before sale so that the angler can rehydrate them in water at leisure, but with the addition of colours or flavours to enhance the baits and provide that little ‘edge’ that may make all the difference. Hidra are available in three distinct forms; Brown Snail, Black Snail and Water Mussel. Next up is another interesting product with a multitude of uses, hence the name; Multi Purpose Powders (MPP). This one has five exciting ‘flavours, Aquatic Fly, Krill, Daphnia, Maggot and Silkworm and basically comprises the whole ‘beastie’ as a powder, but refined and concentrated. I’ve used these extensively too, and my preferred option is to combine the powder with a beaten egg to provide a potent paste which can be used directly on the hook, or wrapped around a pellet or boilie. The powders can also be used as an addition to ground baits and stick mixes, as a coating for glugged baits or sprinkled directly onto such things as maggots to increase the attraction in the area. Finally, the phenomenally successful ‘squab’ has had a makeover; previously available only in 10mm size, the line has been expanded to include 14 & 18mm baits. The pillow like shape makes them extremely difficult for wary fish to eject when hair rigged and they withstand the attention of nuisance fish very well. The new ‘Squabs’ are available in all flavours across the Pallatrax range, so take a look at www. pallatrax.co.uk for more information. Next weekend (12/13th May) sees an exciting couple of days up at Ladybower Fisheries, as they host their open weekend and I’ll be popping in to take a look and see what is current in the local fly angling scene. Owner David Smith has been in touch to invite me up, so after some discussions, we agreed to ask Gary Newman of Anglers Mail to attend for a session later in the month, and the resulting write up will be seen by thousands! I’m really looking forward to trying something out side of my ‘comfort zone’, fly angling is something I would like to know more about to see how I can get it to fit in with my coarse angling. I know many anglers ‘fluff chuck’ for pike and carp too, and I’d love to give it a go! Make the effort to get up to see what is going on, with demonstrations by start fly anglers and much more, it’s sure to be a grand day out. More news at www. ladybowerfisheries.co.uk

The Chester May meeting takes place from Wednesday to Friday and is always a pointer to good horses that will most probably run well at big meetings later in the year. It is therefore worth taking an interest in what runs there so I have provided some suggestions for each day. The weekend sees further Classic trials take place in the shape of the Lingfield Oaks and Derby Trials while there is NH action from Haydock and some very tricky handicaps from Ascot.

much a “pin job”. However I have again looked back to what they achieved last time out and have come up with a shortlist of: Bonnie Brae; Eton Forever; Brae Hill; Skilful; Norse Blues; Pastoral Player; Greensward; and Daular Dhar. Of the others Hawkeyethenoo, Smarty Socks, Advanced, Dimension, Lightning Cloud, Firebeam, Tariq Too, Benanndonner and Emilio Largo can all have a case made for them. Bonnie Brae can therefore be no more than a hopeful choice in a very difficult event. Haydock: 2.00 Pertemps Network Long Distance Handicap Hurdle, Class 2, 4yo+, 3m: Paul Nicholls’ American Trilogy gets a narrow vote over Donald McCain’s Tornado Bob in another very competitive race. However, lurking below in the possible runners, but needing another dozen above him to come out before getting a run, is Philip Hobbs’ Allthekingshorses who could possibly give them both a fright if getting into the race. Of the others Cucumber Run, American Spin, Cantlow, Ringaroses and Russian War are all capable of getting involved at the finish. 3.40 Pertemps Network Handicap Hurdle (registered as the Swinton), Grade 3, Class1, 4yo+, 2m: This renewal looks to be right up to the mark in this most open of races, which is often run at what looks to me to be a breakneck pace. Only 20 of the 42 entries will get a run and the vote goes to Donald McCain’s Red Merlin in a narrow verdict over Nicky Henderson’s Higgy’s Ragazzo and Evan Williams’Charm School – this one needs five to drop out to get a run. Lingfield: 2.10 Betfred Mobile Chartwell Fillies’ Stakes, Group 3, Class 1, 3yo+, 7f: David Wachman’s Experience is the selection in the hope that she makes the journey over from Ireland. If she fails to show up it could hand the prize to Boastful, who won last time out. Dreamwriter, Marvada, Appealing, Intense Pink, Dysphonia and Abishena make up the shortlist. 2.40 Betfred “The Bonus King” Oaks Trial Stakes, Listed, 3yo Fillies, 1m3f 106yds: Cape Safari gets a reasonably confident shout for this one. Alan Bailey’s filly ran second last time out behind Easy Terms at Pontefract, but that race was run on heavy going in a decent time for the conditions and that run could just have put an edge on her in time for this. Aidan O’Brien is represented by Devotion, Twirl and Soon who may provide most opposition for the selection. Of the others Finity Run, Toptempo, Colima and Gifted Girl are all worthy of their places in the line-up. 3.10 Betfred Derby Trial Stakes, Group 3, 3yo Colts and Geldings, 1m 3f 106yds: Many of the top stables are represented here but I fancy a horse from a smaller outfit. Rae Guest’s Ed De Gas is an unbeaten horse and although he only won a conditions stakes race at Catterick last time he did so in a pleasing manner, scoring by twelve lengths in a decent time for the ground conditions. He looks to be highly progressive and to be destined for better things. He gets the vote ahead of Cavaleiro, Goldoni, Call To Battle, Tower Rock and Main Sequence (this latter one is also unbeaten however and could provide most danger to the selection). Selection summary: Chester suggestions: Wednesday: 1.35 All Fur Coat 2.05 Cubanita 2.35 Shubaat 3.05 Tax Free Thursday: 1.35 Absinthe 2.05 Questioning 2.35 Mickdaam 3.05 Boris Grigoriev Friday: 1.35 Kyllachy Star 2.05 Bonfire 2.35 Sea Moon 3.05 Ballesteros Saturday: Ascot: 2.20 Ibicenco 2.50 El Torbellino 3.25 Bonnie Brae Haydock: 2.00 American Trilogy 3.40 Red Merlin Lingfield: 2.10 Experience 2.40 Cape Safari 3.10 Ed de Gas Good Luck!

LAST DAY DRAW LEAVES BLADES IN THIRD MATCH REPORT www.sufc.co.uk

The Blades recorded a last day draw, with ten men, and in the process took the points tally to 90 to secure a playoff spot. Alan Gow disputedly gave Exeter the lead before James Beattie was sent off in the first half. The Blades hit back with goals from midfielders Lee Williamson and Kevin McDonald before Scot Bennett’s last gasp goal denied United maximum points. A total of 1,577 Blades, many in fancy dress as is tradition on the final day, were in Exeter to see the game, whilst thousands more were at Bramall Lane to watch live pictures beamed back. Boss Wilson made three changes to the starting line-up at St James’ Park, which included a new front line in the form of Beattie and Cresswell. Flynn also started, whilst O’Halloran, Porter and Quinn dropped to the bench. Despite the Blades supporters making plenty of noise, Exeter were the quickest out of the blocks. Noble fired over after good work from a throw-in, needlessly given away by the visiting defence, whilst on the break, after nine minutes, Nardiello’s shot was deflected onto the roof of the net by Collins. Williamson was the first in the referee’s book, after a late lunge on Noble, who recovered to smash the subsequent freekick over the crossbar. United, though, began to assert some pressure on the home side and caused problems from the first two corners. McDonald was unable to get enough power after Maguire had headed down the first and Beattie’s

glancing header from the second failed to find the target. The next two opportunities, on 17 and 19 minutes, both fell to Williamson. His header, from a standing start, was comfortable for goalkeeper Krysiak, who then came through the back of Cresswell as the rebound fell to Williamson, whose shot was blocked by a defender. It had been a good period for United but disaster struck on 24 minutes when the home side grabbed the lead. Whilst players and fans appealed for offside, GOW, from a position wide on the left, hit a first-time curler beyond the despairing dive of Simonsen. Next, Nardiello’s shot from the left was deflected wide by the studs of Williamson, whilst United hit back with two efforts that were straight at Krysiak - Maguire’s header from a corner and Williamson’s left-footer. But further problems were to follow for the Blades when Beattie was sent off for the second time this season, his foul on Dunne adjudged to be a red card offence by referee Linington. Doyle was also booked for protesting as Beattie trudged down the tunnel. However, after recovering composure, the ten men levelled with the next chance, which arrived on 44 minutes. McDonald’s crossfield pass paved the way and Lowton whipped in a cross from the right, which WILLIAMSON diverted past Krysiak. Before the break Exeter’s Dunne and United’s Simonsen were both booked as the referee took his card count to five, whilst soon after the interval Mr Linington was pointing back to the centre spot as the Blades took the lead. The first action of the second half saw United win a throw on the left, deep into Exeter’s half, and from Taylor’s delivery, the ball was fed back to McDONALD, who, from the edge of the box, saw his shot deflected beyond Krysiak’s left hand. Not disappointingly as far as United were concerned, the goalmouth action

somewhat curtailed with only Nardiello’s shot being blocked by the head of Collins the only noteworthy chance. Exeter used all three of their substitutes, whilst Porter replacing Cresswell at the midway point was Wilson’s first change. Maguire was the next to block from Nardiello, whilst United’s next chance, on 78 minutes was a Collins header from a corner by Williamson - in the aftermath of Krysiak’s save, he bowled out to a defender, which was cut out by McDonald, but the midfielder was unable to convert. Quinn and Hill replaced Flynn and Williamson in the final ten minutes and Exeter pressed for a leveller, with Simonsen forced to have two bites before collecting Noble’s long-range effort. Three minutes of added time saw Porter strike the bottom of a Stevenage post after getting past Archibald-Henville and Duffy, before the Blades were denied victory with a goal with the last significant touch. A cross from the right was well met by Nardiello, who forced Simonsen into a fantastic save, but BENNETT was ideally placed to nod home the rebound. There was just time for the Blades to restart before the referee signalled the end of the regular season. Exeter: Krysiak, Tully, Jones, Dunne (Bennett 47), Archibald-Henville, Sercombe, Noble, Nardiello, O’Flynn (Bauza 67), Baldwin (Duffy 66), Gow. Unused: Pidgeley, Fortune. Blades: Simonsen, Lowton, Doyle, Beattie, Flynn (Quinn 81), Williamson (Hill 85), Collins, Taylor, Cresswell (Porter 67), Maguire, McDonald. Unused: Howard, O’Halloran.

SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY NEWS 2011/12 OWLS SECURE PROMOTION MATCH REPORT www.swfc.co.uk

Sheffield Wednesday clinched automatic promotion into the Championship on the final day of the season at Hillsborough. The Owls went into the game knowing that a win would be enough to guarantee second tier football next term and did the necessary with a 2-0 win over Wycombe. Goals either side of half time from Michail Antonio and Nile Ranger settled a contest that the home side had largely bossed from the first minute. The game brings a conclusion to what has been a remarkable season for Wednesday and in particular, manager Dave Jones, who has steered his side to ten wins from his 12 games in charge. The stage was set for the Owls’ biggest game of the season with over 37,000 Wednesdayites packed into Hillsborough occupying all four stands. The noise was deafening as the players emerged from the tunnel, with the crowd making a fantastic atmosphere in S6. When the game got underway, Louis Laing had to be alert to clear from a dangerous Antonio centre after five minutes before Miguel Llera made an important block from Stuart Beavon moments later. Antonio had made a good start to match, as he saw a smart strike from the edge of the area deflected out for a corner before Mark Beevers headed the resulting flag kick just over the crossbar. Wednesday were beginning to assert their authority on the game and Antonio darted into the area before pulling back for Jose Semedo, who blasted over the Leppings Lane goal. Then came a double chance for Llera who was denied twice by two outstanding saves from Wycombe keeper Nikki Bull. First Bull managed to tip Llera’s strike from inside the box out for a corner before expertly guiding the ball over from the defender’s headed attempt.

Having bossed most of the opening 25 minutes, the breakthrough finally came for the Owls. Antonio managed to profit from a loose ball from 25 yards and used his electric pace to ghost past two defenders before applying the finish touch over Bull and into the net. That goal sparked joyous scenes at Hillsborough with all four stands bouncing in appreciation of what had been an encouraging opening to such a huge game. The Owls continued to ask the majority of the questions with little in reply from Wycombe. An offside flag then denied Ranger from doubling Wednesday’s lead as the on-loan striker tapped home the rebound from an Antonio hit. Keith Treacy’s strike flashed just wide of the target before the referee brought an end to the opening period. And Wednesday made the perfect start to the second half and went 2-0 ahead through Ranger. A superb delivery from Chris Lines right into the heart of the area picked out Ranger, who nodded home into the bottom corner - putting Wednesday well ahead in the race for automatic promotion. Gary Doherty then made a key block from Ranger, who would have almost certainly have doubled his own personal tally as Wycombe struggled to deal with the Owls’ attacking talent. Matt Bloomfield saw a snaphot sail wide in a rare Wanderers attack before Laing came to the visitors’ rescue at the other end, clearing Gary Madine’s header off the line. As time ticked down, Llera almost added a third but was thwarted by another superb save from Bull. And when the referee blew the full time whistle, it was scenes of sheer joy at Hillsborough with the Owls’ place in the Championship confirmed for the 2012-13 campaign. Owls: Bywater, Buxton, Batth, Llera, Beevers, Antonio, Semedo, Lines, Treacy (J Johnson 79), Madine, Ranger (Lowe 88) Unused substitutes: Weaver, R Jones, Prutton

JONES DELIGHTED AT PROMOTION GAFFERS REACTION www.swfc.co.uk

Dave Jones has hailed the players, the chairman and the fans following the Owls’ promotion to the Championship. Wednesday beat Wycombe 2-0 at Hillsborough to secure the second automatic slot to send a 38,000 strong crowd into delirium. And the success of Jones’ impact will be etched in S6 history after nine wins and two draws guided the Owls over the line. He said: “This is the reward for everyone at this football club. The players have been magnificent, they have listened to everything we have told them and this is their time, it is their day. “They deserve it, they really do. “And those fans out there are just incredible. They were superb today, as they have been since I arrived here. “I have been at a few clubs in my time and believe me, those supporters are right up there with the best. “And I absolutely delighted for the chairman. He has put everything into this club and now he has his reward. “He’s had some difficult decisions to make and he took some stick from a small section but he rode the storm. “This is his football club, it is now promoted and I couldn’t be any happier for him. I have so much time for him.” Performance-wise, Jones said all that mattered to him was the result after the Owls turned in a thoroughly professional performance at Hillsborough. He said: “The performance? I can’t remember how we played! No, all that

mattered was the result and we got it. “I won’t single any player out because they have all been just magnificent. We will get them all back on Wednesday before I close the place down for the summer. “But I will sit down with the chairman and we will talk about next season. I am ambitious, he is ambitious and this club is ambitious. “There is no reason why we can’t go all the way.”
