first_img Top Searches Top Searches FootballPastorRichard Seas North Adams senior right hander Bryant Lung tossed a two-hit shutout on Friday as the Devils defeated Peebles by a final score of 9-0.By Mark Carpenter – An actual warm spring day greeted baseball fans last Friday afternoon at Peebles High School as the Indians and North Adams Green Devils took advantage to play a non-conference affair on the Indians’ home diamond. The story of the day turned out to be North Adams senior Bryant Lung, whose performance on the mound and at the plate led the Devils to a 9-0 win that brought them back to the .500 mark for the season at four wins and four losses.On the hill, Lung fired an absolute gem at the Peebles hitters, a complete game two-hit shutout, with 14 strikeouts and just two walks. At the plate, he pounded out a pair of doubles, going 3 for 5, driving home three runs and scoring a pair. The Devils in all totaled 12 hits as they picked up that fourth win of the spring, taking care of business early, scoring seven runs in the first two innings off of Peebles starter Franklin Myers.Moved into the leadoff spot. North Adams left fielder Dalton Gardner responded with a three-hit day, leading off the top of the first with a base hit and later scoring when Lung bounced into a fielder’s choice. The Devils then hung six on the board in the top of the second, giving their pitcher plenty of cushion to work with.Ryan Shupert led off with an infield hit, followed by a Noah Lung bunt single. A base hit to center by Gardner plated Gardner and a later two-bagger over the left fielder’s head by Bryant Lung brought home Ethan Thompson, who had walked, after Noah Lung had crossed the plate on a Myers wild pitch. A sacrifice fly off the bat of Tyler Horsley made it 5-0 and a single to left by Zach Osborne score Bryant Lung and the sixth run of the frame came as Thompson also raced home on an errant Myers pitch.With the big lead, Lung continued to mow through the Peebles lineup, striking out eight of 10 hitters in the second through fourth innings. The Devils picked up one more run in the top of the third, this one off of Peebles reliever Ridge Cluxton, as Bryant Lung doubled home Gardner, who had earlier singled.North Adams put their final run on the board in the top of the sixth when Bryant Lung led off with a single, stole second and third, and scored on a base hit by Colt Shumaker to make it 9-0. The Indians went down quietly in their final two at-bats and the visiting Devils left town with the shutout victory.“I thought Bryant really threw the ball well today,” said North Adams head coach Rob Meade. “He got behind in the count a few times, but always battled back and for us to be successful, he has to have outings like this for us.”“We shook up the lineup today and it seemed to help. I’m anxious to see how that works out going forward.”The only hits of the game for now 3-6 Peebles came off of the bats of Myers and Chase Meade, while the 12-hit North Adams attack was led by three hits each from Lung and Gardner. Lung was the winning pitcher, while Myers took the loss. The Indians did get solid relief job from Ridge Cluxton, who went five innings and allowed just two runs.Peebles’ Conner Browning (20) slides into second base as North Adams’ Ethan Thompson gets ready to make a sweep tag in action from Friday’s non-conference game at PHS.The Green Devils have been the “Road Warriors” of southern Ohio so far this spring, playing all eight of their games on the road because of construction issues on their home field. that was finally scheduled to change this week as North Adams was slated to host Ripley on Wednesday, Portsmouth Notre Dame on Thursday, and Lynchburg-Clay on Friday, all of course, weather permitting.The Indians are scheduled to host the Manchester Greyhounds on Thursday and then travel to Fairfield on Friday.N.

Number of hate groups in US hits all-time high: Report

first_imgPrathaan/iStock(NEW YORK) — The number of hate groups in the U.S. has reached an all-time high, even as membership in the Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazi outfits have fallen, according to a report by a legal advocacy organization that tracks them.The Southern Poverty Law Center’s annual “Year in Hate and Extremism” report counted 1,020 hate groups in the nation, an increase of 7 percent from the 954 tallied in 2017.The previous record for hate groups in the country was in 2011, when 1,018 were counted at the “height of a backlash” against the first black president of the U.S., Barack Obama, said Heidi Beirich, director of intelligence for the Southern Poverty Law Center.This year’s report showed that the number of hate groups has grown for four straight years.“This time period dovetails with [Donald] Trump’s campaign and then his presidency, a period that has seen a 30 percent increase in the number of these groups,” Beirich said.The Southern Poverty Law Center defines a hate group as an organization that in its principles or statements from its leaders attacks or maligns an entire class of people typically for their race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity.Several groups on the list have blasted the organization for political bias and exaggerating the threat of hate. Some organizations have also sued to have the hate-group label removed. In 2018, the SPLC publicly apologized and paid out $3.4 million to political activist Maajid Nawaz for including him on its anti-Muslim extremist list in 2016.California, the country’s most populous and solidly Democratic state, had the most hate groups with 83; followed by Florida with 75 and 73 in Texas, according to the report.The report also showed the number of white nationalist groups climbed 48 percent from 100 in 2017 to 148 in 2018.“These are basically racists who wear suits, khakis, and polos who argue for a white ethnostate, a white political space controlled by whites,” Beirich said.She said the number of black nationalists groups also jumped 13 percent from 233 in 2017 to 264 in 2018.“These are groups that are typically anti-Semitic, anti-LGBT and anti-white. They are very different than some of the white hate groups that we talk about often and track since they have virtually no supporters or influence in mainstream politics, much less the White House,” Beirich said of the black nationalist groups.The center’s report also found that for the third straight year, the number of Ku Klux Klan groups fell from 130 in 2016 to 51 in 2018, and the number of neo-Nazi groups fell 7 percent from 121 in 2017 to 112 in 2018.“The Klan has begun to be a part of the white supremacist movement that just isn’t attracting many folks to its message,” Beirich said. “It’s simply becoming less important, which is a big change.”The report shows as the number of hate groups has risen, so has the number of hate crimes.The FBI shows the number of hate crime incidents reported increased about 17 percent in 2017 compared with previous year.She pointed to a two-week period around the midterm elections in November when the country saw suspects professing to be white supremacists go on shooting rampages.On Oct. 27, Robert Bowers, 46 — who authorities said “made statements regarding genocide and his desire to kill Jewish people” — shot and killed 11 people at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh. Bowers is believed to have posted his intent to commit the massacre on the social media platform Gab, which is popular with white supremacists and the alt-right, investigators said.On Oct. 26, Cesar Sayoc, 56, was arrested on charges of mailing more than a dozen pipe bombs to prominent Democrats, other high-profile liberal figures and CNN. Sayoc called himself a white supremacist and was found in a van plastered with pro-Trump stickers, investigators said. He has pleaded not guilty to charges.On Oct. 24, Gregory Bush, 51, allegedly shot and killed two African-Americans at a Kroger market in Louisville, Kentucky. A grand jury charged him with murder and hate crimes because he allegedly targeted his victims based on their race, prosecutors said. Bush pleaded not guilty to the charges.Beirich said a total of 40 people were killed in hate crimes in the U.S. and Canada in 2018.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Rather Than Canceling, Beanstalk Music Festival Pivots To Drive-In Event

first_imgAs live concerts this summer continue to seem less and less likely, Beanstalk Music Festival has announced Beanstalk: At The Drive-In, a socially-distanced replacement for the scheduled festival, originally set to take place on June 25th–27th at Rancho Del Rio in Bond, CO. Beanstalk: At The Drive-In will take place that same weekend, June 26th–27th at the Holiday Twin Drive-In Theater in Fort Collins, CO.Related: Magic Beans’ Scott Hachey Reflects On Beanstalk’s Seven Years Of Growth, Change, Friends, & Family [Interview]The unique event will adhere to all State of Colorado and Larimer County social distancing protocols and will feature two nights of music from Beanstalk Festival founders and annual hosts Magic Beans. The lineup for Beanstalk: At The Drive-In will also include Kitchen Dwellers and Cycles as well as Colorado artists The Great Salmon Famine and Envy Alo. Current ticket holders will be granted admission for themselves, a guest and their vehicle with their 2020 Beanstalk pass. Tickets for the newly-pivoted drive-in event are available here.Holiday Twin Drive-In Theater opened in Fort Collins in 1968 and has provided Colorado’s Front Range with unique entertainment for over 50 years, being named among “the 25 most charming drive-ins left in America” by Architectural Digest.At the event, audio will be transmitted to attendees in their respective vehicles via short-range FM radio, while live performances will be seen on the theater’s two massive drive-in screens.“We’re lucky to be independent promoters with great support when it comes to our patrons, so it’s all about them,” said Beanstalk Festival promoter and Magic Beans guitarist Scott Hachey. “We’re resourceful and agile enough as a team to pivot and still provide a music experience that we think may end up being just as fun, and certainly more unique; I think that’s our niche. People are itching to get out and have fun, but also want the reassurance that the right precautions are being taken. Well this is it, here we go!”Related: Beanstalk Music Festival 2019: The Gift That Keeps On Giving [Photo/Audio/Video]Beanstalk: At the Drive-In will have a limited capacity in order to adhere to the drive-in theater’s layout. In addition, Beanstalk Festival producers have proactively decided to park attendees with an empty spot between each vehicle. While this will cut down on both capacity and profits for the event, organizers see this as the right thing to do to ensure safe social distancing and offer reassurance that the event is operating under an abundance of caution and care for the safety of all.Guests will be permitted to set up a “hang out area” directly adjacent to their vehicle that is safely distanced from other patrons. In adherence with typical drive-in admission policies, there will be no entry after 8:30pm in order to ensure that the safety & experience of all guests is the first priority. Festival and theater officials will be diligently ensuring adherence to all guidelines once on-site at the drive-in.Beanstalk Festival promoters urge patrons to reach out with any questions, as well as inquiries about refunds for tickets purchased for the Rancho Del Rio location if they do not wish to attend Beanstalk: At the Drive-In.Beanstalk Music Festival’s decision to convert to a drive-in-style event follows a new trend in the COVID-era music industry. Various European cities have already started hosting drive-in concerts with considerable success. American electronic producer Marc Rebillet recently announced the U.S.’s first drive-in tour, and Live Nation CEO Michael Rapino divulged that the promotion giant is looking into the drive-in model for more events in the near future.For more information on Beanstalk: At The Drive-In, head here.last_img read more

Unprecedented Coordination Between Aid Groups on Display in Haiti

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMore The good news from within the devestation in Haiti this week begins at the airport, where a U.S. Air Force ground control team worked around the clock to restore electric power and the control tower in Port-au-Prince to allow relief supplies, military troops and aid workers to begin pouring into the country from around the world. The U.S. Southern Command is operating the airport, running it around the clock to maximize the ability to get planes in, to unload them and to move them forward. Heavy-lift military cargo jets from the United States and planes from other nations as diverse as Iceland and China have unloaded relief supplies while military ground crews maneuvered forklifts piled high with pallets of goods — generators, vehicles, fuel, communications equipment, food, water, medical equipment and supplies, and shelters. The Navy’s USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier group arrived yesterday bringing 19 helicopters, critical in ferrying relief supplies to areas that cannot be reached over damaged roads. It also brought considerable medical capabilities. The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is sending 14,550 tons of food aid in multiple shipments, including 7,000 tons of rice, 4,550 tons of corn-soy blend and 3,000 tons of vegetable oil. The food aid, which is designed to feed 1.2 million people for two weeks, will be distributed by the U.N. World Food Programme and through private voluntary organizations. “Food aid will be critical in the coming weeks,” USAID Administrator Rajiv Shah said. “By acting quickly now, we can help those most affected by this disaster in their time of need.” (Above report includes material from America.gov) The Cluster Approach Makes its Debut in Disaster Relief The Haitian earthquake is the first major test of a new UN logistical system implemented after the Asian Tsunami four years ago — an effort to coordinate relief operations between aid organizations. And, while we see a wave of compassion around the world, with private donations pouring in, the coordination of international aid groups is just as inspiring.

It’s a great lesson,” says coach Kerry Soppet.Cade also fits into Soppet’s football philosophy nicely, reports the CC Times. “I don’t coach kids to win football games. I coach kids to be winners.”Cade was also crowned a homecoming prince and got to ride through the town in a convertible with a cheerleader on his arm. “Through it all, he beamed.”(READ the story, w/ photos, from Contra Costa Times)Story tip from Mike McGinleyAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMorelast_img read more

ABOTA Foundation program earns top award

first_imgABOTA Foundation program earns top award August 15, 2007 Regular News ABOTA Foundation program earn top award The Association of Educational Publishers recently awarded the Foundation of the American Board of Trial Advocates its Distinguished Achievement Award, which recognizes the best educational materials — such as books, periodicals, educational toys, and software — within subject categories and by audience.This year, Justice by the People, an interactive program developed by the Foundation of ABOTA to teach students about trial by jury, won the award for Social Studies Instruction for grades 6-8. The program is available at www.scholastic.com, a portal for school-based professionals.“More than five million Americans are called for jury duty each year,” said ABOTA Foundation President Joseph P. Milton of Jacksonville. “Many of today’s students will serve on juries someday. For most, it will be their principal way, other than voting, of participating directly in the democratic process. Jury duty will be an opportunity to offer great service, but also an awesome responsibility. The more jurors understand their role, the better they will be able to fulfill this responsibility.”The program was launched in 1998 to allow students hands-on experience with the trial process. The lesson plans and student reproducibles are designed to help teach students about the Sixth and Seventh Amendments and the importance of the right to trial by jury.“Our mission is to preserve the right to trial by jury. One of the scopes of that mission is to educate people about that constitutional right. We feel the best place to start is in the school systems,” Milton said.last_img read more

Cashman finds success after getting more playing time at linebacker

first_imgCashman finds success after getting more playing time at linebackerThe junior has played on special teams often times, but filled in for Jonathan Celestin last game.Jack RodgersJunior linebacker Blake Cashman goes in to tackle Maryland wide receiver DJ Moore on Saturday, Sept. 30, 2017 at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. Jack WarrickNovember 9, 2017Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintThere aren’t 125 Blake Cashmans on the Gophers’ roster, but that’s the goal for head coach P.J. Fleck.Cashman, an Eden Prairie, Minnesota native, had just 12 tackles and zero sacks coming into the Michigan game last week. He filled in for a hurt Jonathan Celestin, and had his best game of this season in the 33-10 loss. He made six tackles including a sack, and Minnesota’s head coach has been impressed by the junior.“That’s how you should play the game,” Fleck said. “If we had 125 Blake Cashmans, that’s the goal.”With a new coaching staff implementing new schemes and new players on defense, Cashman has made less of a mark as a scholarship player than he did last year as a walk-on. He played mostly on third down packages and special teams this year prior to the Michigan game.Cashman’s season-high performance was a bright spot in an otherwise tough game for the Gophers.“I was excited to get in there. It was a hard loss… I felt sick, we didn’t play well and that was definitely a game coming in to the Big House that you want to get,” Cashman said. “It gave me some confidence, and I can’t wait to hopefully get back out there and get some snaps maybe on first and second down if my number’s called again.”The Gophers defense has used Cashman mostly on third down packages this year, and the linebacker said he has around 100 snaps on defense, not including special teams.Celestin, another middle linebacker, has been dealing with a shoulder injury and Fleck said the speed of the Michigan running backs made him switch Celestin with an uninjured Cashman.   Cashman played all of last season without a scholarship. He tallied 45 tackles and a team-high 7.5 sacks. He is seeing less action this year as Thomas Barber, with 82 tackles, and Celestin, with 64, have most of the playing time at middle linebacker.“[Cashman’s] become more than just a third down guy for us,” said defensive coordinator Robb Smith. “He loves playing the game, whether it’s special teams, first downs, second down, third down. He loves playing the game and we love having him out there.”In this week’s game against Nebraska, Cashman will have the opportunity to play against old high school teammate JD Spielman. Spielman, went to Eden Prairie high school where he played varsity football with Cashman for three seasons. Spielman earned Minnesota’s Mr. Football Award in 2015, which is given to the best football player in the state. He also takes kick returns for the Cornhuskers. Cashman has played on Minnesota’s kickoff team this year, which means the two could clash on Saturday.“Hopefully, we get to start the game on kickoff and I’ll be able to go down there and try to make a play on [Spielman],” Cashman said. “That will be exciting. I’ll reach out to him at some point this week to talk to him, see him after the game.”Heading into this week’s game against Nebraska, Fleck said Cashman is the model for what he wants his Gophers teams to look like in the future.“If you could take Blake Cashman, and in three years down the road sit there and say that’s what the team will look like at every position? That’s my vision of the football team.”last_img read more
