The study had been done to determine the extent of a flood risk in the southwest part of Hartington during a downpour rainfall of around six inches that has a chance of happening in a 100-year period for this area. The nursing home, assisted living facility, a mobile home park and other areas in Hartington would all be affected if the storm occurred.
Currently water is draining down from 240 acres of land into a conduit tunnel at the intersection of Cedar Avenue and Court Street. A preliminary study showed two dams located on private property west of Highwy 57 currently act as the primary flood control for most of the 240-acre area.
Hubbard presented several options that would serve to control and manage the water flow along with the estimated costs. The report included improvements that would be made and paid for by the city but would be done on the ponds and land that are privately owned by former Hartington Mayor Bill Yates. Council members did not take action on the final flood control report a€“ the options and figures will be looked at and a decision will be made later. The worst weather skirted past Cedar County, but the area still recieved 2-4 inches of snow. Cedar County will be starting the process of looking for a new 911 system, according to Emergency Management Director Kevin Garvin. Elected Officials are required to complete NIMS training which can be done on line or in a classroom. NIMS includes planning and preparing for tornadoes, winter storms, earthquakes, floods, fires, terrorism along with other hazards. According to Garvin, in order for Cedar County to remain in compliance with the terms of previous federal grants, which include homeland security and roads, and to be in compliance to receive future grants, elected officials as well as the first responders must take the NIMS training. Garvin has been gathering information for an application for a Hazardous Mitigation grant that would be used to make improvements on the outdoor warning systems used in the county.
In other business, Chairman Marlen Kraemer put his name on an application for a grant from the Crime Commission. Cedar County is looking at receiving a little over $19,000 a€“ the county would be required to supply close to $7,500 in matching funds for the grant. Having a One and Six Year Plan in place is a state requirement and is needed in order to receive state and federal funding.

According to a report, Hartington had served 4,798 meals for the period of July-December 2010: Randolpha€™s facility was used even more as they provided 5,228 meals.
Keith DeJong, from Eisenbraun and Associates of Yankton, went over the One-and- Six-Year Street Plan with Council members at the Jan. Westfield Acres and the Nordby Addition are included in the proposed Street Plan, according to DeJong. Letters will be sent out to all of the downtown businesses inviting them to attend the meeting on the Downtown Revitalization Project.
In other action, subscribers to the local cable TV system will see a jump in fees starting March 1, the Council was told. A maintainer owned by the city backed into a city truck when snow was being removed from city streets during one of the recent snow storms, according to Mayor Brad Peitz.
Peitz had checked on the insurance and found there would be no coverage on damages done to the 1979 dump truck.
Council members talked about purchasing an additional truck for the city a€“ prices will be looked at before the figures are put together for the next budget.
Sidewalks that will be constructed to provide a walking path connecting the Community Complex to the Westfield Acres were discussed.

The Hartington-based publication is printed in Hartington, but the printing crew drives up every week from the Northeast Nebraska News Company Print Center in Osmond. The presses were rolling in Hartington Wednesday morning, however, and the print edition was expected to be in local mailboxes Wednesday afternoon. NORFOLK a€” West Point Central Catholic proved Saturday just how difficult it is to beat a good team twice.
This marks the second year in a row West Point CC has kept the Lady Trojans from claiming the championship hardware.
HARTINGTON a€” The Hartington Chamber of Commerce has rescheduled its February meeting for Tuesday night at the Main Street Bar dining room. One of the stars on the popular reality television seriesA  a€?Jersey Shorea€? has entered into an agreement to help promote a downtown Hartington business.
Nicole a€?Snookia€? Polizzi from the a€?Jersey Shorea€? TV show has signed a license agreement with Comfy Feet, which is owned and operated by Keith Eickhoff. It all began when Snooki appeared on the a€?Jersey Shorea€? TV show wearing a pair of pink Comfy Feet slippers. In a short time, Keith noticed a surge of sales for the pink and white over-sized slippers.
Comfy Feet, which is based out of the old Orwig Ford building in downtown Hartington,A  is developing a Snooki line of slippers that will include nine to ten designs. Ryan Eickhoff, Keitha€™s son, has designed the first five slippers for the line a€” neon slippers that come in green, lavender and pink, along with slippers in a leopard and zebra design. A website has been developed for the Snooki Slippers and plans are being put in place to market the line nationally. He will be exhibiting the Comfy Feet slippers at a booth in Las Vegas and Snooki will be at the booth signing autographs for people. Keith recognized an opportunity and mailed Snooki a couple more pair of Comfy Feet slippers.
A contact was made with her agent and Snooki has signed a contract to promote the slippers.
The building on Broadway Street, which at one time housed the Orwig Ford garage and office space, is now overflowing with Comfy Feet slippers. Nearly 200,000 pairs of slippers are sold annually by the Hartington business that distributes the comfy house slippers. Comfy Feet has the slippers manufactured overseas and then distributes the slippers to specialty shops around the country where they are sold.
Walgreena€™s and many sports apparel stores, such as Pro Image, along with JJ Benjia€™s in Hartington stock the slippers.
The slippers appear in mail order catalogues, can be purchased from on-line stores and an order can be placed on-line at Hartingtona€™s Comfy Feet web site.
The slippers come in a choice of college and professional sports team logos along with a line of a€?animala€? slippers a€“ and now the Snooki slippers have been added. Comfy Feet has three full-time employees plus several temporary full-time workers who are employed during the Christmas season. He was doing screen printing and embroidery work when he ran across the slippers at a trade show.
He worked with both at first but within a short time he sold the screen printing and embroidery business to Jeff Benjamin and went full time with Comfy Feet slippers. In addition to the Snooki slippers, Comfy Feet has recently signed an agreement to produce a line of slippers for the a€?Animal Planeta€? TV show. His son Brandon is managing the business, located just west of Hartington on Hwy 84, that distributes comforters and bed sheet sets that have sports logos. The sub-contractor doing the construction on the water mains, sanitary sewer and storm sewer will be Plumbing and Electric, Hartington, and Hartington Concrete will supply the concrete for the street paving. A walking path will be built along the north side of the Community Complex fence, which will allow people to access the Complex from the new subdivision. The target date for completion of all the infrastructure work is scheduled for late August of this year and the lots will be seeded in grass shortly thereafter. According to the Abilene Texas Reporter News newspaper, Burcham landed on his head during the rodeo and the horse then stepped on him. I first saw them perform at the 2009 Tribes Hill Annual Meeting and Hootenanny at the historic Hammond House headquarters in Valhalla, NY.
Much of their work carries the style and emotional power of musical theater, something Ia€™m very fond of.
After they found out that they were all into music, they'd go over to Paul's house and play just for fun doing covers of Sheryl Crow, Bonnie Raitt and others. Outside of her positive chorus experiences, there were two stumbling blocks, one of them having a lasting negative effect. The next step she took was to enroll as a Theater major at SUNY (State University of New York), Fredonia, near Buffalo NY.
Around 1996, the three had been getting together to play at Paul's house for some time, eventually playing a few shows as The YaYas, but never took any of it too seriously. In 2003, they self-produced their first 10-song CD, Everything, co-produced and mixed by Ben Wisch whoa€™d produced the Grammy-winning album Walking in Memphis by Mark Cohn and additionally, other notable performers (Patty Larkin, Lucy Kaplansky, Jonatha Brooke, Red Molly). While Catherine is the lyricist for the band, she readily acknowledges the integral part that Jay and Paul play, sometimes helping her complete the songs, pushing her past hurdles in the narratives.
Paper Boats was just completed in September, and I was able to listen to the album before its release. The band moved to Mohegan Lake, near Peekskill, NY in 2005, and has become a part of the Tribes Hill community.
The YaYas will appear in Acoustic Live showcases at NERFA and wea€™ll be at the Postcrypt Coffeehouse for their October 1st show.


I thought Jay, wry humorist, was the joker in the 3-card hand until Paul started to tell his story. A  Jim showed great ability as a young rugby league player and was asked to play President Cup for Westa€™s at the tender age of 15. The objective of the study was to determine what could be done to contain the water upstream.
That, accompanied by 40-mile an hour wind gusts and below-zero temperatures forced area schools to dismiss early Monday and to call off school all together on Tuesday.
We are passing on some of the cost a€“ we will not even be covering our increase for programming,a€? Dendinger said. Chris Schmidt would chip in with 12 points and eight boards, while Chad Boeckman had a solid night in the post and finished with 10 points. Devin Wieseler would erupt for six points and four points each by Austin Wieseler and Jackson Sudbeck helped the Blue Devils build a 41-20 halftime advantage. Four points each by Chris Schmidt and Devin Wieseler and a Randin Rawlings three pointer fueled another big 21-7 run that broke the game open as Wynot led 62-27. Terrence Heiser would hit apair of fieldgoals for Lynch and Micheal Wieseler connected on a trio of regular fieldgoals for Wynot as the Blue Devils maintained the 31-17 advantage after three quarters. Sophmore Nathan Wieseler came off the bench and used his size to score twice inside as the Blue Devils finished off the Eagles 44-23. Bailey Kuchta, Ashley Heine and Kelsie Higgins contributed eight points each to Wynota€™s offense. The Lady Trojans earned a 41-22 rebounding advantage, including 75 percent of all defensive rebounds.
Katelyn Dickes and Kendra Lammers also hit for double figures with 11 and 10, respectively. The schedule will depend on the weather, however, as Mondaya€™s game had to be moved due to s wind and snow storm and school was cancelled here Tuesday. Randolpha€™s Brittany White led all scorers with 15 points and Sara Kruger contributed nine points to the Lady Pirates offensive totals. Hartington answered with four points each from Megan Wolfe, Kassydi Jueden and Becca Heikes but still trailed by three points.
Winside got double figures from Megan Leicy with 13 points and Shelby Liebermann just missed with her nine-point effort.
They started with a 13-7 run in the third quarter fueled, by five points from Shelby Liebermann and four points by Nazya Theis as they cut the Wildcats in Purple lead to one points at 26-25. This time it was in the first round of Lewis and Clark Conference Tournament as the Lady Indians dominated the game and advanced with the 65-35 win.
Ponca got a three pointer from Korah Kramper and four points each from Megan Pollard and Lindsay Schnoor to race out to an 18-8 first quarter lead. Ponca continued their hot hand however, lead by four more points by Pollard and three points from Kayla Beacom they rolled to an big 33-16 halftime lead.
Rylee Rich hit a trio of fieldgoals and four points by Jordan Perkins fueled another 18-point outburst to push Poncaa€™s lead to a commanding 51-25 advantage.

He enjoyed attending his kidsa€™ activities and later on, his grandkidsa€™ activities as well.
The band in which she sings lead vocals, The YaYas, has just released a new album, Paper Boats. With her husband, Jay Mafale on guitar and old friend Paul Silverman on piano, she forms the point at which the lineup, in tandem, pushes its way into the listenera€™s heart.
Neither of his parents had musical ability, but his father played Sinatra records all the time. Her teachers were serious about teaching everything from folk singing, to sight reading and ear training.
The company would rearrange the space differently, according to need, sometimes in-the-round, often with the audience in close proximity to the actors.
He didn't pursue any type of musical performance during his 4 years at college, but his drive to play was persistent. He did some acting for fun and enjoyed the camaraderie of the other actors, continuing with the theater group after graduation. During this period, Jay and Catherine fell in love and in October of 1997, they got married. On their honeymoon, Catherine was thrown from a horse and two of her vertebrae were crushed.
Reaching back to their first CD, Everything, it was evident that they had something special. Catherine continues to do what she does best, writing songs that touch upon her personal experiences, but contain universal appeal, then express them with refined, passionate vocals.
Reaching back to their first CD, Everything, it was evident thatA  they had something special.
A Jack Gibson played 5 games, Arthur Summons 3 games, Don Parish 1, Bill Carson 1 and Kevin Smyth 5. During his time at Wests John went from a speedy, hard running and tackling winger into a very hard running, ferocious tackling Test playing second rower.But let us not get to far ahead of ourselves a€¦a€¦John was born at Kempsey (not Casino) on the 1-3-1947.
A But he promised me on his returnA back to the United States I would be the first media personality to interview him in New York City.A  I never will forget how confident he was that he would return victorious. Wynot senior guard Britney Heine would play her final home game for the Lady Blue Devils and finished with a seven-point effort. Tracy Peitz also posted a solid game, hitting for nine points and dishing out seven assists. Myranda Fischer would take care of that deficit as she drained a long range three pointer to tie the game at 39-39 and send it into overtime.
He was also a great cook, enjoyed his dogs, gardening, traveling, and watching birds, especially cardinals and hummingbirds. Her other hobbies included doing crafts, sewing, gardening, and baking those wonderful soft, chewy, chocolate chip cookies. That loss proved to be solid motivation for the Lady Jays, who played tenacious defense to defeat Cedar 45-28 in Saturday nighta€™s MidState Conference title game.
The song, a€?All these Gifts,a€? is from that album, and epitomizes her command of the songwriting craft and her vocal abilities.
Once they found out about their mutual interest in making music, in small increments, their path revealed itself. When she was around 14 years old, as a Christmas gift, her mother purchased private lessons for her with a voice teacher.
Finding that she liked it, she performed through the rest of high school in some dramas and a couple of musicals. It gave Catherine a new, heightened confidence, having the audience right next to her at times. She'd lost the grandmother she sang with at age 14 and her maternal grandmother the year before her mom died.
I got my hands on Everything at the 2009 Northeast Regional Folk Alliance (NERFA) Conference.
Although no one else in her family had musical talent, her grandmother, who loved to sing, lived next door.
I got my hands on EverythingA  at the 2009 Northeast Regional Folk Alliance (NERFA) Conference. A Wests also did not play one game at the SCG in 1964.A Jim Cody played 17 games in First Grade and 1 in Reserve Grade. The lead singer begins, her voice with that little catch in it which always works its way past my defenses. During a 90-minute conference-call interview, amidst many laughter-filled moments, we learned about each membera€™s individual path and what brought them together. Given that there wasn't much money available for such things, it was for just one lesson per month and, to her, it was a special gift. However, during her senior year, her English teacher told her that the subject matter in her poems was immature and not worth writing about. Rehearsals were held mostly on Long Island and toward the end also in Manhattan, where Jay was living. She was confined, with a brace, to bed rest for three months, allowed to take a few steps once a day. In my December NERFA CD reviews, I wrote: a€?While Jay on guitar and Paul on keyboard are terrific, Catherinea€™s voice is the jewel in the setting. In addition to co-bills with Freda€™s band, Hope Machine and the YaYas, Fred and Catherine will be touring together this fall.
Geraldine attended Sacred Heart Elementary Catholic School, Yankton, and graduated from Mount Marty High School in 1946. The couple settled on the Kirscht family farm in Ostego Township, Wright County, Albertville, Minn. Hearing them again, on a number of occasions, their brilliance reinforced my initial impression. When he was 12, his parents took him to a Sinatra concert and he was thrilled to watch Buddy Rich drumming. During the third lesson, Catherine asked the teacher if she had a chance to become a singer. A lot of Souths Strathfield players like Denis Pittard, John Armstong and Nev Hornery to name a few went with Alex Smith. A year later, he was joined by Millie Willenbring, Constance, and they were married in 1938, at Ventura, Calif.
During her recuperation period, she had time to reflect, and she realized that singing was the most important thing in her life and she wanted to make a serious attempt to work at it full-time. She later moved to Omaha and worked for Mutual of Omaha for a few years and then moved back to Yankton, and worked at Sacred Heart Hospital as a receptionist until her marriage. They moved throughout central and southern California and in 1950 settled in Santa Monica and raised their five children. She worked 30 hours a week her first two years and didn't audition for anything the first year. She spoke to Jay and Paul about pushing for more gigs, so in 1998, they surveyed the musical landscape and began their serious run as a band. Kevin and Barbara began their lives together in Norfolk where Kevin worked for Central States Theater Corporation. Michael-Albertville School District for several years where she helped transport disabled students. After re-acclimating herself as a student, in her sophomore year, she started performing in plays again.
He worked with rehearsals for shows, so there wasn't time to practice the material a€” he just had to pick it up quickly. John was also playing rep football Group v Group.A 1965 A  Johna€™s life was about to change forever. In January of 2005, Wynelle came to Owasso and was currently residing at the Evergreen Care Center. In addition, she took a writing course, and in Carolyn Sobel, her professor, found a believer.
Then in 1992, they moved to Camanche, Iowa, and Kevin oversaw building and managed the new Cinema 8 Theaters, Clinton, Iowa.
Verna enjoyed gardening, flowers, sewing and needlework, bird watching and spending time with her sons, grandchildren and friends.
Ita€™s dreamlike, with Paula€™s keyboard ringing like chimes and Jaya€™s solemn guitar strum conducting a stately march. Eric organized for Billy Owens and Noel Kelly to visit and chat to John about playing for Wests in Sydney.
He worked with his dad farming in Belden and then advanced his farming opportunities by moving to Neligh in 1978. Catherinea€™s voice floats, ethereally high over them: Please let him keep looking toward this horizona€¦When Ia€™m thinking of him, ita€™s twilight. He was told that he should play Rugby Union to beat the transfer fee that Smithtown might put on him.The story was if you played RU for 1 year you could move over to League and not incur a transfer fee.
One of Johna€™s flatmates was trying out for Easts Rugby League and told John to come along and try out for Easts.John met with Roy Flynn, the Easts treasurer at the time and the conversation went like thisa€¦a€?No chance, bring him back when he grows up!!!a€? John had just turned 18. This chat stayed with John and he always played that little bit harder when Wests played Easts.John, without a car, arrived at Ashfield park via public transport and trained with Wests. A My second week at the course I got in early and became bored while waiting for my homeboys. A My teammates and coaches were often challenged by my "Just give me the ball and get the hell out of my way" attitude. A I was not the best athlete on the field or on the court, but I thought I was.A When the game was on the line I wanted the ball in my hands.
I cana€™t find out the score but John tells me the Water Board boys won.A A The main event. Jim finds that players are far to friendly with the players from the other team during and after the match.

A A It was a hot evening and the constant in and out of the woods was not a pleasant undertaking. One team, drawn out of a hat, would have the luxury of playing the winner of the first playoff match.
What I thought would be a nine-hole outing turned into eighteen holes and a White House visit and a Presidential appointment in 1969. General William Rogers, Hattie, President Nixon and HBA Petey and I would become great friends and in 1965 we would meet again.

A I would become a Roving Leader (Youth Gang Task Force) for the DC Recreation Department and Petey would find his new home in radio at WOL. A A Ita€™s a bumpy, dusty drive beside the Macleay River just south of South West Rocks (home to Smoky Cape Lighthouse and a prison with a killer view, Trial Bay Gaol) to get to the big blue shed at Rainbow Reach, with potholes so deep you could fish in them a€“ but the drive is worth it. John Elfords oysters explode in your mouth, salty and creamy, with a lingering mineral aftertaste.Hea€™s been oyster farming here for a dozen years, is passionate about his product and the river he works and lives by, and reckons he wouldna€™t want to do anything else.

A There were other mistakes like someone thought a black Judy Holland was VP material---far from it. A It took a minute but in the meantime, he was making an effort to bring about change in his own way.
A But according veteran (32 years) sports writer Bill Rhoden of the New York Times, progress in sports media pressrooms around the country are on a slow boat to China.A His recent appearance on the widely acclaimed television news show Meet the Press, he said, "the NBA, NFL and MLB are still dragging their feet. Media pressrooms at Deadline are still the last plantations.A A Pioneering broadcaster and former NBA CBS basketball analyst Sonny Hill and now a sports talk show host on WIP Radio in Philadelphia said, "I am not surprised by Rhoden's statement, very little has changed in media pressrooms. A One of the problems there is no networking among blacks who have moved it up the ladder." A That is an understatement. A  The copy rights for Inside Sports is own by News Week Magazine and it is own by the Washington Post. A A First, there was a a problem with the PR Men from hell, Brian Sereno and Matt Williams. A A It was brought to my attention that Sereno was disrespecting the ladies of The Roundball Report.
A The meeting was set before a Wizard's game in the press louge but Scott Hall was the lead man. A He listened and we disagreed on some points but when we walked away from the table we were on the same page. A The community and everyone in it was a friend, the old and the young, the black and the white and the healthy and the lame. A I was honored to speak at his retirement held at the arena just before the Bullets moved to Washington and changed their name to the Wizards.A Denny Gordon was in ticket sales and it seem like he knew everyone who brought a ticket. A He was made the scapegoat after being sold out by his assisstant coach Bernie Bickerstaff and others. A The meeting revolved around a charity all-star game scheduled for the Bahamas, the island home of NBA star Mycal Thompson. A Magic Johnson was one of All-Stars participating.A Representatives from the NBA included VP Ron Thorne, Legal Counsel Gary Bettman and head of security Horace Balmer. A A Gary Bettman is the Commissioner of the NHL, Thorne is somewhere lurking in the NBA, Balmer has since retired and Magic is a role model for Black America?
A A The short lived existence of basketball legend Michael Jordan as a Wizard's player and Executive in the front office. A After the story broke he and several teammates made light of it during introductions of a game. A He was eventually suspended for most of the 2009a€“10 season.A The thing that I find disturbing about this Donald Sterling charade is that folks are acting like they were surprised by his rants against blacks. A A I also notice the same "Old faces and voices" are called on to respond to the racist acts by men like Sterling---when they are a part of the problem .
A He and Sterling were good friends because "Birds of a feather flock together." A  Check Magic's history out and you will discover the two have a lot in common. A Magic's claim to be a minority owner of the LA Dodgers is another sham (token black face). James Brown (CBS Sports) another mis-guilded brother claiming to be a minority baseball owner and an expert on racism. A He did finally admit on the late George Michael Show (Sports Machine) "I have no say in making baseball decisions as a minority owner." A His role as a minority owner is to be paraded out on Opening Day as the black face to read the starting line-ups. A A This is the same Michael Wilbon that I had at least two recent conversations about the use of the N word as a term of endearment. A I have to give him credit, he will at least talk to me face to face and not behind my back.
A I tried to explain that his rationale that his grandfather's use the word as a term of endearment does not make it right today. A I told him he should not go on national television saying it is okay to use the N word among friends and family. A It gives bigots like Donald Sterling the Green Light to do the same among his friends and family. A Plus, Michael told me he was not going to appear on the ESPN Show Outside the Lines because the white host had no horse in the race! A A I wish that Magic, James, Michael and the rest of the media experts would defer to black men like Hank Aaron, Dr.
A But they wear the battle scars and have been on the front lines of the civil rights movement in real life and in the sports arenas of America. A In other words, they have been there and done that.A I guess that is wishful thinking, especially when everyone wants to be an expert on television. A In the meantime, they don't know their asses from a hole in the ground but the beat goes on and on.
A Auerbach would go a step further in the 1966-67 NBA season, when he stepped A down after winning nine titles in 11 years, and made Bill Russell player-coach. A A trailblazers, RED AND DOTIE AUERBACHi»? ON INSIDE SPORTSA Russell would eventually be the first black to win an NBA championship. A There are far too many crying "Foul" and playing the victims in this charade, to include some NBA owners.A Let me start with my homeboy, the great Elgin Baylor who was the Clippers GM for over 2 decades. His teams were perennial losers on the court and in attendance, but he picked up his check every two weeks and kept his mouth shut.
A A In his deposition, Elgin spoke about what he called Sterling's 'plantation mentality,' alleging the owner in the late 1990s rejected a coaching candidate, Jim Brewer, because of race. A Talking about an organization needing a change of name and a face-lift---meet Leon Jenkins.A Jenkins seen above at a press conference trying to explain why the li»?ocal branch was honoring Sterling during the 100th Anniversary of the organization next month.
A A He explained the previous award had been approved by the man he replaced and he just went along to get along. A A Sterling won't be the first to sleep black and think white when it comes to sex, politics and money.
Slave owners lived by the credo and in modern day history there was the late Senator Strom Thurmond. A Nike NBA rep John Phillips and I met with VP Rod Thorn, League Counsel Gary Bettman and Head of League Security, Horace Balmer. A The meeting centered around whether Magic Johnson, Mycal Thompson and a group of NBA All-Stars would be allowed to travel to the Bahamas for a charity basketball game without league approval. The game had been played in the Bahamas the previous year without incident or controversy.A It was obvious that there was a power-play being made by the league office to cancel the game. Thorn open the meeting by asking who was going to be responsible if one of the players was hurt during the game? A Magic suggested that the topic of conversation just might be centered around an injury to a player. I tried to explain that playing the game was no different then one of the players participating in a pick-up game on a New York City playground in the off season. A What is this some kind of plantation?"A The room went silent and Horace Balmer the only other black in the room just shook his head and seem to be lost for words. A Thorn called off the discussion and promised to get back to us but he never did.A In the meantime, Magic Johnson disappeared and changed his number. A Mycal was a class act but his hands were tied when Magic decided to do his Houdini act.A Gary Bettman now runs the NHL, Ron Thorn is still in the NBA somewhere calling the shots, Horace Balmer has since retired and Magic is the face (black) in the middle of the Donald Sterling charade. A When all is said and done, the real victim despite all of her baggage is the girlfriend (The Whistle Blower) V. A NBA Commissioner Adam Silver during his annoucement as it related to the punishment of Donald Sterling apologize to black NBA pioneers Earl Lloyd, Chuck Cooper and Magic Johnson. A He reminds me of the controversial Celebrity Chef Paula Deen who alledgely use The N word to describe her love for black folks.
A  How should we expect her to know if she has never walked in our shoes ?A  When it is a part of your DNA it is difficult to rid yourself of the gene.A  A One morning I was watching Ms. This award was longed overdue and I wonder why it took the NAACP so long to finally recognized Mr. Belafonte in accepting the award asked, "Where are today's black leaders?A  Our children's blood is still running in our streets---there is work still to be done.
The coalition stated it will urge President Obama to mention an urban jobs plan in his state of the Union speech on February 12th----Good luck! Ben Carson of John Hopkins University Hospital.A  His prayer and message was centered around health care, the economy, American debt, and tax reform, thus taking dead aim at President Obama's platform for the nation. Carson spend 25 minutes talking about the nation's ills and solutions with the President sitting less than 5 feet from him.A  When all was said and done, President Obama was not looking so Presidential! Carson set the record straight from the very beginning.A  He made it clear he was not taking any wooden nickels. In 2010, he became that series' youngest driver and the first black driver to win a race at Greenville-Pickens Speedway. A close friend of mine that has been partially paralyzed by strokes, pays for aids to "help". If they show up, they usually just sit and do nothing, root through her jewelry and personal effects, and some have been caught stealing jewelry. One was there when she collapsed with another stroke, and instead of calling for help, she called her boyfriend and left, leaving her patient to manage on her own.
It runs M - F from 10am - Noon and starting on Monday July 22 will repeat from 4pm - 6pm each day. My opinions about Tiger Woods or any other issue are mine and I could give a damn about what Feinstein or anybody else things about them. In their prime at theA Washington Post, they were among the best sports writers in the country.
A I was up close and personal with the sports department.A Kindred and Chad were talented writers but you could not trust them, Cornheiser and Feintstein's talent, they easily blended in with the landscape of the paper. A Feinstein called Wilbon the biggest ass kisser in sports media, if that is true he had great teacher in Cornheiser.
A When Solomon tried to kick Cornheiser to the curve (fire him) in the 80s he was able to move to the Style section of the paper.
A One black female Washington Post columnist wrote a book titled "Plantation on the Potomac." A She was describing her employer. A Hopefully, they were asked to participate and were of the same mindset as Wilbon not comfortable with Mr.
A Goodell makes more than any player in the NFL and he never has to make a tackle or catch a pass.A The owners recent pay out to the players for injuries suffered on their watch was peanuts compared to the billions they make year in and year out. A When he refused a request by his mother to cease using the word and a similar plea by poet Myra Angelo. Martin Luther Kinga€™s 1963 march on Washington and 46 years since his assassination in Memphis, Tenn.
With the high-scoring Macauley, elite passer Cousy, and new prodigy Sharman, Auerbach had a core that provided high-octane fast-break basketball.
In the next years until 1956, the Celtics would make the playoffs every year, but never won the title. Brown was desperate to turn around his struggling and financially strapped franchise, which was reeling from a 22a€“46 record.[5]A The still young but already seasoned Auerbach was made coach.
A Nike NBA rep John Phillips and I met with VP Rod Thorn, League Counsel Gary Bettman and Head of League Security, Horace Balmer.A The meeting centered around whether Magic Johnson, Mycal Thompson and a group of NBA All-Stars would be allowed to travel to the Bahamas for a charity basketball game without league approval. A He was right on point.A To this day I think Magic had a previous discussion with the league office.
James Gholson, Red Auerbach, Biff Carter, Jessie Chase, Morgan Wooten, Everett Cookie Payne Sr., Frank Bolden, Dr. Leo Hill, Roper McNair, Earl Alfred, Maxwell Honemond, Tilman Sease, William Roundtree, Charlie Baltimore, Jaky Mathews, Ferdinand Day, Nick Turner, Walter Brooks, Ted McIntye, and my saviors, Dave Brown and Bighouse Gaines.A  They knew their Xs and Os, but more important, they were there for our highs and lows.A  Where have all those flowers gone? We never could have made it without them.I have given up on the Pigskin Club, but keeping hope alive for the DC Recreation Department and the Roving Leader Program.
BELL 12-25-1940---8-1-2013A A GOOD COP WHO BROKE THE CODE OF SILENCE IN THE WASHINGTON, DC POLICE DEPARTMENT. A The real Serpico is seen leaving the Bronx Courthouse alone after testifying before the Knapp Commission on wide spread police corruption in the department. A In the old days police A would carry a "drop knife---an inexpensive weapon cops would bring along on patrol to drop onto or next to suspect that they had taken out so that they could say that he had threaten them.
A Today you don't even need to do that; all that you have to do is justify the use of deadly force if you are a police officer is to say that you feared for your life, for whatever reason. If the victim dies, that just means there will one less witness around to contradict the test-lie. A In the case of Officer Michael Slager of the North Charleston police, it appears he was being extra-carefulto cover his tracks.
A Probably he could have gotten away with simply declaring, as he did in the radioed report, that Walter Scott "took my taser," and that would have probably have sufficed to exonerate him. A But Slager having shot Scott eight times in the back--as everyone can see in the now famous video--perhaps felt that he needed a little help explaining what he was up to. A So apparently dropped his Taser next to Scott's body, which would obviously help to make the case that Scott "Took my taster."A If you think that what happen in North Charleston is a unique case, its not. A Only recently, in another case, a policewoman in Pennsylvania first Tasered a black man then shot him twice in the back as he lay face down in the snow. A Unless honesty is rewarded more often then corruption, the police will lose credibility altogether. A I wrote a letter to President Bill Clinton in 1994 addressing this very issue, saying that honest cops have never been rewarded, and maybe there ought to be a medal for them, he wrote back but nothing change. A If enough testi-lying is uncovered, then who is going to believe the police even when they are telling the truth? A A Until now the shoot first fear of my life mantra has eliminated any cause for concern in the taking of life by police. A When a civilian committs a crime, every nuance is looked at, the better to "throw the book at" the suspect. A The other day I got a letter from a journalist in Argentina who was complaining about police and judicial corruption there. A I wrote back to him, there are good cops, even where you live, but if the good cops don't want to be painted with the same broad brush as the bad cops, they need to come forward and expose the guys who are doing bad things. A Take New York City detective who was caught on camera recently abusing an Uber driver with threats and foul language, A This was truly disgusting behavior. Yet predictably enough the detective union leader, Michael Palladino, was out there making excuses for him, suggesting that, well, it was only one incident, and everyone has a bad day. A Afterward Police Commissioner William Bratton announced he was removing the detective's shield and placing him temporarily on desk duty while an investigation is conducted . A But this man needs to be demoted to uniform at the very least, or "back in the bag" as we use to say. A Imagine what he is capable of doing under the cover of darkness if he can talk to someone like that in broad daylight.
A There are plenty legitimate incidents where police believe, correctly, that their lives are in danger. A I was in a few of those situations myself during the course of my career.A But unless the police forces and society as a whole take action we're not going to be able to distinguish between the legititimate claims and made-up testimony. A A long time ago Norman Rockwell painted a famous picture of a friendly neighborhood cop bending down to help a little boy. A For example; I could name someone who is a great athlete but a lousy human being or I could name someone who is a great human being but not a great athlete. A Heading the list is Muhammad Ali (The Greatest), Red Auerbach (NBA), Dave Bing (NBA), Lenny Moore (NFL), Bert R. Sugar (Boxing), Lee Jones (NBA), Roy Jefferson (NFL) and Harold McLinton (NFL), finding pro athletes like them today are far, few and in-between.
A And that is a sad commentary when you think about the hundreds of men and women I have interviewed on Inside Sports and worked with as a youth advocate (Kids In Trouble).
Moore, LB Dave Robinson (2013 NFL Hall of Fame inductee) and WR Roy Jefferson host KIT toy party. A Sam Jones (NBA), Lenny Moore (NFL) and Roy Jefferson (NFL) participate in KIT clothing drive for needy children at Union Station. A Bert Sugar (Boxing) receives KIT Life Time Achievement Award and Dave Bing (NBA) pays tribute to KIT Saturday Program All-Stars.I had the opportunity to hear an interview on Sirius A XM Radio (channel 126) on the Maggie Linton Show recently, her guest was NFL Washington Pro football player, wide receiver Peirre Garcon.
A I have not been very impressed with todaya€™s pro athletes and their give back commitment to their family, friends and community.
A He has three older sisters making him the youngest and the only one born in the United States.His father died when he was 4 years old leaving his mother to raise him and his 3 sisters alone. A My background is similar to Peirrea€™s, my mother had to raise 4 boys alone with an assist from Grandma Bell.
