A passenger on a JetBlue flight to Palm Beach International Airport from New York’s JFK has been positively diagnosed with the coronavirus, according to Palm Beach Fire Rescue.The plane landed around 8:30 p.m. last night at PBIA and sat on the runway for hours as first responders called the Department of Health of Palm Beach County.They say passengers who were near the patient were given instructions on monitoring their health at home. According to PBC fire rescue officials, crews at PBIA are sterilizing the containment area where passengers deplaned. That area was separate from the main airport terminal.The aircrew and 114 passengers were stuck on the plane for hours.Just before 11 o’clock, the two people in masks and gloves walked off the plane.About 30 minutes later, other passengers were allowed off.Within an hour, all passengers had deplaned and were told to monitor their health over the next couple of days. They were allowed to leave the airport without seeing a doctor.

Powered by Firework Jose Mourinho is enjoying what can be called a “gap year” from football management. The Portuguese has been in the football management scene since the last 20 years and for the first time in his career has found himself a not so busy start of a season, as he is without a club for now. The Special One has taken to punditry in the meanwhile.Advertisement Sky Sports had JM on duty for the Manchester United vs Chelsea game today and as usual the wise manager proved to be quite insightful. The discussion was mainly on the title chances of the big 6 clubs.Advertisement “Who can win the title? Four,” he replied. “Man City, Tottenham, Liverpool and Man City B team.”He added: “When I looked at the bench yesterday, the players not involved I think even the B team could fight for the title.”Advertisement On whether his former clubs – Manchester United and Chelsea could win the title, Mourinho said: “I don’t believe they’re going to resist in the title race.”He also added: “I want to say that the obvious thing, we would love United and Chelsea at that level. In football, sometimes unpredictable things can happen, but I think we all agree, a team last season that won everything in England last season and the European champions.” Advertisement
By Marion LynchLITTLE SILVER – The borough’s long dry spell is about to come to an end, with voters approving the sale of the first-ever on-premise consumption liquor license.The binding referendum was approved 801-736 in unofficial results posted by the Monmouth County Clerk’s office Wednesday.Resident Matt Kelly, who collected 500 signatures on a petition last year that led to the referendum, is happy with the results.“It’s a good thing. The people have spoken and now it’s up to the council to make something that works,” he said.As a homebuilder and 11-year Little Silver resident, Kelly says he has seen the borough’s demographics change.“Why isn’t there a place to get a drink in town?” is a frequent question he hears from young families who want to move into the borough, he said.Kelly told the Two River Times last month that if the license is approved he would like to build a family-friendly restaurant and bar on the west side of the railroad tracks. Kelly, along with his brother Michael, owns Oceanport-based Kelly Builders.“Whether I’m the successful bidder or not, the community wants this. It will be great for our town, great for our social lives, to stay close to home instead of having to go out of town to socialize or have a drink with dinner while you’re with your family,” he said.Mayor Robert C. Neff Jr. said the Borough Council is ready to move ahead with an auction for the license, but there’s some work to be done before a bar can open its doors.“This is not a full-speed ahead kind of thing. We will take our time and we’ll make sure it’s done properly,” he said.The council will have to vote to amend the current alcohol control ordinance, which doesn’t permit by-the-glass sales at any establishment.“It’s important for everyone to know that there will be several public hearings,” Neff said. “People will be able to voice their concerns. It wasn’t an overwhelming victory and there are people in town who have concerns about things like location, hours of operation, and the size of the establishment. All of those things will be considered by the council and the public will have a chance to be heard.”Next, the council will work with the state Division of Alcohol Beverage Control to hold a public auction of the license. Current law limits the issuance of one license per 3,000 residents. With a population of less than 6,000, Little Silver would be limited to one license, which would go to the highest qualified bidder.Neff declined to speculate on the potential windfall for the borough’s coffers.“It’s hard to tell. We don’t know what a license may bring at public auction,” he said.There are only two places in Little Silver where liquor is sold, The Little Silver Bottle Shop, which sells beer, wine and spirits and the Acme Market, which sells unrefrigerated beer and wine. Diners are permitted to bring their own beer and wine to drink in borough restaurants.Previous attempts to pass such a measure failed – once in 1976, when the measure lost by 800 votes and most recently in 1981, when it lost by a 2 to 1 margin.“Public safety will be paramount,” Neff stressed. “Everybody with a stake in the effects that an establishment like this will have will have an opportunity to be heard.”While official tallies weren’t yet available, Neff said voter turnout appeared to be high.He said that Borough Clerk Kimberly Jungfer reported there was steady traffic throughout the day at all polling locations, and that the referendum probably generated a fair amount of interest.Neff was elected to a second term as mayor in an uncontested race, along with incumbent councilmen David Gilmour and Glenn Talavera.“It’s a special privilege to be elected to a second term because of the people I work with. I can’t say enough about our employees and the other people on the council,” he said.Local 2015 election coverage on The Two River TimesUnexpected Results in a Historically Low Turnout YearGOP Takes Red Bank By 4 VotesIncumbents Ousted in HighlandsGOP Sweeps, Other Than Stunning Angelini and Casagrande Loss‘Quixotic’ Oceanport Mayoral Attempt SucceededLocal Election ResultsVoters Approve Liquor Sales in Little SilverVIDEO: Local Candidate DebateEvery Vote Counts (Editorial)
The Fraser Valley Phantom needed a gritty effort to knock off Kootenay Wildcats in B.C. Female Midget AAA Hockey League action this past weekend in Langley.The Phantom, leaders of the six-team league with a 10-1-3 record, posted wins of 1-0 and 3-1 during a two-game weekend series.Kootenay, 4-9-2 on the season, is fifth in league standings.Mikayla Ogrodniczuk scored the only goal of the game late in the opening frame to spark the Phantom to the win Saturday in the series opener.Sarah Mex pitched a shutout in goal for Fraser Valley. Sunday, Kootenay got off to a great start, taking a 1-0 lead into the first period intermission on a goal by Paige Chapdelaine of Cranbrook.But Fraser Valley struck for three second-period goals — two coming in a two-minute span late in the frame — to erase the Kootenay lead.Kirsten Martin led the Phantom with two goals.Kealey McMurty, finishing the game with two points, scored the other marker for Fraser Valley.Morgan Flynn of Castlegar and Natasha Singer of Kimberley are the two Kootenay netminders.Kootenay, currently locked in a five-game losing streak, host a BC Hockey Midger AAA Hockey League tournament weekend December 13-15 in Nelson and Castlegar.The Wildcats open with a game against Prince George Courgars before facing the Phantom, West Coast Avalanche and Okanagan Rockets.The game against Okanagan is in Castlegar at the Arena Complex.
Chelsea have shown some promise in the early games under Frank Lampard but the bookmakers would have you believe the Blues are not capable of mounting a serious challenge for the Premier League title this season.Liverpool and defending champions Manchester City are still regarded as the division’s two stand-out teams – and that’s with some justification given the quality of their attacking football.The odds found at websites like Mighty Tips highlight that City and Liverpool are much fancied to battle it out in another two-horse race for the top prize.While Chelsea are not among the favourites for the title, they are certainly favourites for this weekend’s game at Wolves despite the Midlands side establishing themselves as a force to be reckoned with since coming up to the top flight.But could Chelsea be decent dark horses for silverware this season – perhaps in the Champions League, which begins next week?Attacking abilityThere are certainly signs that they are building a team with serious attacking ability – and that’s despite the current shortage of attacking options and the summer departure of Eden Hazard to Real Madrid.After a difficult start, Tammy Abraham has been in superb form in recent matches, suggesting he is capable of justifying Lampard’s faith in him and being the goalscorer Chelsea need up front.David McIntyre | With Willian and Pedro on their way back to fitness, new arrival Christian Pulisic finding his feet at Stamford Bridge and Callum Hudson-Odoi recovering from an Achilles injury, Chelsea have attacking players capable of giving any team problems.Defence can improveIt’s at the other end of the pitch where Chelsea have looked vulnerable – but that might be about to change.Kurt Zouma and Andreas Christensen have seemed vulnerable at the heart of the defence, but the imminent return of Antonio Rudiger could make all the difference. So too could the defensive midfield presence of N’Golo Kante, who has struggled with knee and ankle problems but is expected to be available after the international break.January signings?Lampard has of course been restricted by a transfer ban – but again Chelsea’s worries here might only be temporary.Reports have suggested that the club are increasingly confident that their appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport will be successful, paving the way for Lampard to make signings when the transfer window opens again in January.If Lampard is able to bring in a striker to complement Abraham and perhaps get an experienced defender in to shore up that leaky defence, Chelsea could well upset the odds this season.

About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Liverpool fullback Robertson: I’m bored of van Dijk praise…by Freddie Taylor10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveAndy Robertson has joked that he’s bored of talking about Liverpool teammate Virgil van Dijk. The Dutchman’s stature continues to grow with each impressive performance for the Reds.But one of his teammates is tired of hearing the noise.”I’m getting bored speaking about how good he is!” said Robertson after Friday night’s win over Wolves.”No, I’m only joking. He was fantastic.”We knew when we saw [Adama] Traore up top that he has got great pace. His pace and direction are a big threat and big Virgil did so well with him. We knew on the counter-attack they were dangerous.”I’m sure he will be disappointed he has not scored more goals but it was a clean sheet and his first Premier League goal – pretty much a perfect day for him.”He’s been brilliant [since joining Liverpool]. I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside him for the majority of time on the left-hand side of the defence. He’s just a great lad to have next to you – I’m not sure he will say the same about me!”I think we have had a good relationship, we work together. The whole back four does, whoever plays, his impact on the club has been good. I look forward to it continuing.”
