Print Facebook CHILDREN in Limerick who have to suffer the pain of multiple injections daily have been given their best Christmas present ever with news that an end to their suffering is in sight. It was revealed this week that the HSE has advertised a post which is vital to the provision of insulin pumps for children with diabetes. Interviews are already being arranged for a diabetes specialist nurse who can teach children and parents how to use the pumps and now the post of dietician has also been advertised.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up This will make it possible for around 125 children and their parents to be trained in how to use the pumps without having to go to Dublin.Until now, the pump treatment could not be provided in Limerick because the specialist staff were not in place to teach families how to match the food their children eat to the amount of insulin which needs to be delivered by the pump. The pumps do away with the need for painful injections.Joe Saunders of Parents of Type 1 Paediatric Patients of MWRH Limerick said that the advertisement of the post is “very good news. This means the service can be provided in Limerick for the first time. It will be rolled out first for the under-fives but it means that there will be pumps available down the line for all the children who are suitable and who need them”.

Ocean City Mayor Jay GillianThe following letter is from Drew Fasy, chairman of the Committee to Re-Elect Mayor Jay Gillian, regarding an April 7 candidates debate at the Ocean City Free Public Library.Two men — incumbent Mayor Jay Gillian and challenger Ed Price — are running for mayor in the May 13 municipal election, but only Price attended the debate. In an earlier statement, Fasy said the mayor received an invitation for the April 7 debate only on March 24 and that the debate sponsors had run a newspaper ad announcing the debate without first confirming the mayor could attend.Read the counterpoint letter from Michael Hinchman, president of Fairness in Taxes, sponsors of the debate.Mayor Jay Gillian believes that open debate and discussion of the issues is an important part of our electoral process in Ocean City and is looking forward to two public debates during the campaign season. The first is a Candidates Forum sponsored by the Ocean City Community Association on Wednesday, April 23 at 7 p.m. at the Ocean City Free Public Library. The second is a debate jointly sponsored by the Ocean City Republican Club and the Ocean City Democratic Club on Wednesday, May 7 at 6 p.m. at Ocean City High School.Unfortunately, Mr. Hinchman is deciding to play politics over scheduling. The fact is that Mr. Hinchman’s invitation was received well after the other events were set and conflicted with a previously scheduled family commitment for Mayor Gillian that he had arranged around the other scheduled debates. Due to a busy calendar, as well as not wanting to dilute attendance for the other organizations who had planned in advance, it wasn’t possible to reschedule.Mayor Gillian is proud of his record of working with the community to overcome challenges and restore cooperation and teamwork to our local government so that the priorities of Ocean City residents are the focus, not bickering or grandstanding. And he looks forward to discussing the future of Ocean City at the two public forums and debates that are scheduled.Andrew FasyCommittee To Re-Elect Mayor Jay Gillian
Chelsea travel across London to face Tottenham at 5.30, so Manchester City have the chance to pile more pressure on the leaders when they welcome Sunderland to the Etihad. It’s fourth versus fifth at St. Mary’s where Southampton entertain Arsenal. Gunners boss Arsene Wenger puts the Saints’ fine season down to good recruitment. Prospective new West Brom manager Tony Pulis is expected to be in the stands for their trip to West Ham. Liverpool’s aim is three wins in a row today – Leicester are today’s opponents for Brendan Rodgers’ side. John Carver has the chance to stake a claim for the permanent Newcastle manager’s job when the Magpies face Burnley. Elsewhere, Hull face Everton, QPR go up against Swansea, and Crystal Palace make the trip to Aston Villa. Meanwhile,Scottish Premiership leaders Celtic are away to Partick at 5.30. Aberdeen could top the table by then – a win at home to St. Johnstone will see them replace Celtic for a couple of hours at least. The Tayside derby kicks off at 12.15 with Dundee United facing Dundee at Tannadice. Elsewhere, Hamilton take on Ian Baraclough’s Motherwell, Ross County face Inverness and St. Mirren play host to Kilmarnock.
Chelsea have confirmed that Jose Mourinho has been appointed their new coach.According to the club site, Mourinho has signed a four-year contract.Ron Gourlay, Chelsea FC Chief Executive, said: “I am delighted to welcome Jose back to Chelsea. His continued success, drive and ambition made him the outstanding candidate.“It is our aim to keep the club moving forward to achieve greater success in the future and Jose is our number one choice as we believe he is the right manager to do just that.“He was and remains a hugely popular figure at the club and everyone here looks forward to working with him again.”Mourinho brings three coaching staff with him in Rui Faria, Silvino Louro and Jose Morais. Each carries the title of Assistant First Team Coach and will work alongside current first team staff Steve Holland, Christophe Lollichon and Chris Jones.
LOS ANGELES — Until Tuesday night, the first game was just a day in the life.Remember last year’s openers? Portland 128, Lakers 119. And Denver 107, Clippers 98. And of course you don’t.“Whoever wins tonight, it’s going to mean nothing,” said Doc Rivers, the Clippers’ coach. “And the team that loses, it’ll mean nothing. But, having said that, you always want to win.”Game One was always the rocking motion that started the ski run, or maybe the 50K cross-country race. Quick starts rarely matter in a marathon, especially when 16 teams qualify to run another one. The Lakers actually started 2-2 but quickly found a groove and were 10-4. With Norm Nixon freeing up Johnson to play all over the floor, they ran and shot to thrill.On Nov. 8, McKinney and assistant coach Paul Westhead set up a tennis game near their homes in Palos Verdes, and McKinney’s wife had the car. McKinney took his bicycle. He crashed, fractured his skull, and would never coach another Lakers game. Nixon, among others, said “Showtime” was always McKinney’s creation.Now everything is Showtime, but until April, they’re all marking time.“I like what both teams did,” Ford said of the Lakers’ and Clippers’ offseason roster moves. “What matters, when you get to the playoffs, is who’s hurt and who’s not.”That answer is at the bottom of the hill. With one exception and one exceptional hug, you normally can’t see it from here. The nation was not tuned in, literally. CBS dared not show NBA games, even NBA Finals games, in Eastern prime-time.Still, CBS sent Brent Musburger and Hot Rod Hundley to San Diego for the 8:30 PDT tipoff.Four quarters later, the Lakers produced the snapshot that would launch five championships and, in its own way, would lead to the limousines and entourages of today.Abdul-Jabbar took a fanciful skyhook from just outside the foul line. It swished, the buzzer sounded, and the Lakers won 103-102.Johnson then invaded the force field that surrounded Abdul-Jabbar and gave him a tight, rolling hug. The theoretical had become tangible. Magic and Kareem would blend their uniqueness and put the Lakers back on the cover of Sports Illustrated and, eventually, Forbes.They won the 1980 championship. By the time they won again in 1982, CBS was no longer tape-delaying weekday NBA Finals games, or playing them on Saturday and Sunday afternoons to avoid a prime-time ratings licking. Joined by the Celtics (who won behind Larry Bird in 1981), the Lakers changed everything.“Before that game, we were Kareem’s team,” Don Ford said on Tuesday morning. “After that game, we were Magic’s team. Magic had that great energy. Kareem was probably the leading intellect of the whole league. It was some combination.”Ford was the forward from UC Santa Barbara. He still lives there, after helping broadcast Gauchos games all these years. He also was the in-bounds passer from the sideline on Oct. 12. Abdul-Jabbar said at the time that Ford was supposed to hit Magic on a lob, but when the Clippers cut it off, Ford went to the familiar port in a storm.“I don’t remember much, but I remember how deep that skyhook was,” Ford said.The next February, Ford was dealt to Cleveland along with a first-round draft pick in the 1980 draft. The Cavaliers gave the Lakers Butch Lee and their first-round pick in 1982. The Cavaliers’ pick became Chad Kinch. The Lakers’ pick became James Worthy. No need to explain further.On that night in San Diego, Free shot 19 for 29 and scored 46 points, without 3-point candy.McKinney rode his starters hard that night, long before “load management.” Johnson played 41 minutes in his first game and scored 26 points. Abdul-Jabbar scored 29 with 10 rebounds. Jamaal Wilkes added 19 points.Related Articles Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook and other NBA stars pay tribute to Kobe Bryant No matter what Kawhi and A.D. and LeBron did to each other at Staples Center in this one, nothing would be decided, except for the experiment to see how many cameras could squeeze into an empty postgame locker room.But there’s always an exception.On Oct. 12, 1979, the Lakers went to San Diego with cautious hopes. They had this rookie, Magic Johnson, whose smile and game could make any building a disco, and they still had Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who had put up joyless numbers all those years to no avail.They had others, too, and new coach Jack McKinney. Nobody was thinking NBA Finals yet. There were no red carpets.San Diego was home to the Clippers. They would play there five more years before Donald T. Sterling moved them to Los Angeles. But the Clippers knew they’d be entertaining, with World B. Free firing rainbows, and they’d actually won 43 games the year before.
