Bath staged a stunning fightback to stay on course for the Premiership play-offs by beating West Country rivals Gloucester 31-20 at the Recreation Ground.

Gloucester led by 17 points entering the final quarter, but Bath moved second in the table after hooker Tom Dunn touched down twice in five minutes, before prop Lewis Boyce powered over and scrum-half Ben Spencer added a 78th-minute bonus-point score.

Fly-half Rhys Priestland kicked four conversions and a penalty, and victory over Saracens in their final regular-season game on Sunday week will be enough to secure a top-four finish.

Gloucester conceded 28 points during the final 19 minutes, and they could scarcely believe what had hit them.

Jamaica House gets ‘big upgrade’ after 26 years, opens new doors four blocks away

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — After 26 years in the same location near Virginia Commonwealth University, Jamaica House was ready for a new home. Now the popular local restaurant has opened its doors just four blocks away in Richmond’s Arts District.

Just a quick ten-minute walk between the old location of Jamaica House and the new location

After moving to Richmond from Brooklyn in the mid-1980s, Carena Ives, the Jamaican-born owner, said that delicious food was always the inspiration behind opening up a restaurant. With that in mind, she opened Jamaica House in July 1994 at 1215 W. Broad Street.

“I was hungry! I wanted my home cooking,” Ives said. “I wanted my mother’s home cooking. And that kind of led me down this path and here we are.”

Ives said that she didn’t have much of a choice to move

Thank you, Mr. President, for seeking to revive patriotism in schools

My teaching career started in 1979, just three years after the bicentennial of the Declaration of Independence, when the truths of the founding and the liberties of this great country were taught in the schools. About 20 years ago I compiled and wrote articles for children about Old Glory, the beautiful flag of the United States of America, because I wanted to build patriotism and share my love of America. I have friends from many nations and work daily with immigrant families who have risked so much to have a better life in this country.

From the beginning of my teaching career until now, I have seen the deterioration of the teaching of

A first look at Dawn Ward’s Warford Hall spa hotel

There are many strings to Dawn Ward’s bow. Most people will recognise her as the fiery matriarch from ITVBe’s Real Housewives of Cheshire, but her pursuits extend well beyond the follies of reality television with a business portfolio that has included a high-end property development firm, an interior design company, and a non-surgical clinic (the latter two of which she still runs).

For her latest venture, Ward is to open a luxury spa hotel in her famous home, Warford Hall. The impressive £14.5 million pile in Alderley Edge, designed by W. Roberts and dating back to 1867, is regularly featured on the show. Dawn and her husband, ex-Premier League footballer Ashley Ward, developed the 12-acre property into a family pad 13 years ago after it had previously been used for offices.

The spa hotel plans were approved by Cheshire East Council last week, despite resistance from neigbours who expressed
