Miss Nevada, who is also a combat veteran, has been stripped of her crown and sash for refusing to remove her pro-Trump social media posts.29-year-old Katie Jo Williams of Las Vegas is accusing the Miss America pageant of dropping her over her support for President Trump.She says she is tired of being labeled a “crazy, right-wing” nut job because she wears a MAGA hat in one post.In a Facebook video, Williams said she was officially disqualified from this year’s pageant after being told she was too political on social media.The organization says their decision has nothing to do with the president, they just don’t allow contestants to make their political beliefs known on pageant-related accounts or engagements.According to their website, the Miss America contest is a “no politics pageant.”The Miss America pageant will be held this Saturday and will air Sunday, Sept. 9, on the ABC Television Network without Williams.The jilted contestant, Katie Williams, will join Jen and Bill live Thursday morning at 8:35 to talk about the Miss America pageant drama.
Comments Published on September 7, 2018 at 10:19 pm Nottingham opened its season with a road win at Rome Free Academy. That led into a home opener against last year’s sectional runner ups, Baldwinsville. But the Bulldogs (2-0) defended home turf with a 20-0 win over the Bees (0-2). Playing with its backup quarterback at the helm didn’t slow Nottingham, which led from start to finish in a statement performance. Facebook Twitter Google+
Wayne Chan defied the rain and wind to take top Best Net honours as the race for the title of 2018 Annual Club Champion continued at the Lusignan Golf Club this past weekend.LGC President Aleem HussainChan racked up a Gross 69 while in the Best Gross category, it was Lusignan Golf Club (LGC) President Aleem Hussain who landed in first place while two-time Guyana Open Champion Mike Mangal finished second and Pur Persaud third.Persaud continued to make a statement as he shot a net 72 to come in second with MACORP executive Guillermo Escarraga making a strong return to the Greens with a net 74 to finish in third position.The winner of the annual point competition gets a variety of prizes along with a full year of bragging rights and the competition was keenly contested in the early stages, but after winning the first four events, the Best Net Champion Title looks to be a shoo-in for Club President Hussain who has performed extremely well this year.There is still a battle for the Best Gross Title as Mike Mangal refuses to quit and with just two matches left to play, it might come down to the very end. The LGC has seen an increased number of tournaments this year and as more major companies join the sponsorship ranks, the game is becoming more popular, drawing the attention of all ages and genders.Meanwhile, the 2018 Guyana Open promises to be a major event with golfers from more than 12 countries expected to participate. Only 100 spots are available for this year’s event and golfers are urged to register early to ensure that they have a spot to contend.
