Courtesy of Aidan Cook Residents of Hall of the Year Carroll Hall attended the Kelly Cares 5K in the fall semester 2020.Even though they lie on the furthest edges of the campus, the residents of Far Quad and East Quad won big this year in the Hall Council Presidents (HPC) Hall of the Year contest. For the 2019-2020 year, Carroll Hall won Hall of the Year, Dunne Hall won Men’s Hall of the Year and Flaherty Hall won Women’s Hall of the Year. Carroll Hall was built in 1906 before becoming a residence hall in 1967. The hall puts on a number of events every year including lake cleanup brigades and group workouts where they partner with other dorms, in addition to hosting their signature events: the Lakeside Music Festival and Carroll Christmas. Carroll’s hall president, senior Aidan Cook said these events were more successful than ever. “This year, the goal we set our eyes on was winning Hall of the Year. We wanted to show campus that our size and location were something to envy, not pity,” Cook said. Additionally, the dorm hosted guest speakers events alongside their Men’s Group discussion sessions. The dorm displayed impressive participation in GreeNDot training and won the highest Dorm Based Athletic Attendance Contest, both key components to the HPC’s point-scoring in the contest. They also had the most residents participate in the Kelly Cares 5K. Cook said the long walk to Carroll brings the residents together. “During this return journey,” he said. “We physically distance ourselves from the stresses of campus and classes and come together again in a home where we know, with no exaggeration, every other resident’s name and interests and story. Because of this, we can readily support each other and band together to achieve goals we collectively share.”Cook thanked the HPC and other dorm leaders.“Whether we collaborated with their dorms, sought advice from them in trying to plan new programming or built new friendships with them, these other campus leaders were always there for us to turn to,” he said. Carroll Hall rector Eric Styles said Cook and vice president, senior Jacob Stellon played a huge role in this year’s award, who collectively came up with the Carroll Kitchen food sales initiative. “This is my fourth year as rector, which means the current seniors started with me,” Styles said. “That makes them special to me. I know them really well and have asked much from them, and they delivered. We also had a higher number of seniors elect to remain on campus. It helps to keep the community more mature. They are looking toward their future, and the younger residents see that.” Both Stellon and Cook praised the participation of Carroll residents. “Our community was especially successful this year for a long list of reasons,” Stellon said. “But it all comes back to the fact that we, all 100 of us, worked hard to make it this way.”Built in 2016, the Flaherty bears have resided on East Quad for four years.“In my opinion, Flaherty Hall is so special because of the identity that we have acquired over the past four years,” Flaherty’s president, senior Catherine Dieckman said. “We are no longer being confused with Farley, nor are we considered just a boujeer form of Pangborn. Over the past four years, we have become a dorm that is home to fierce, strong, compassionate women.” Flaherty works each year with Beacon Children’s Hospital to fundraise for monetary and supply drives in addition to holding a DVD collection. They also have established a textbook exchange program, support the Boys and Girls Club of South Bend and the Center for the Homeless and boasted a percentage increase of GreeNDot participation from 19% to 28%. According to Dieckman, some of Flaherty’s most beloved traditions include their signature events such as Project Pumpkin Pie, an event in November where Flaherty’s residents bake 80 pies for the South Bend Center for the Homeless. “This is one of our favorite service events of the year, and we continued this tradition from when the Pangborn community moved into Flaherty,” Dieckman said.The hall also fosters an internal community through their weekly food services, Bearly Baked on Monday nights and Fronana on Thursday nights. Additionally, the hall hosts a barbecue called BearBQs in the fall and spring. “Our hall government makes all of the food, and our girls love it,” Dieckman said. In their presentation to HPC, Dieckman said she and her vice presidents focused on the improvement of their signature events, their work with Beacon Children’s Hospital and the diverse events they held with other dorms. Dieckman also created a one-second-a-day video showcasing the community and work of the residents of Flaherty Hall during her term, which was presented to HPC.“Even though Flaherty Formal, Honey Week — our spirit week — and Flaherty Females Weekend did not occur this year due to the shortening of the spring semester on campus, our Bears still prioritized making memories in the small ways,” Dieckman said. The Men’s Hall of the Year, Dunne Hall, was built in 2016, on East Quad alongside Flaherty Hall. The Sentinels’ signature events include the DunneDance Film Festival — which was held over Zoom this year — and the Dunne Funne Runne. The dorm began a number of new initiatives this year including a parent’s weekend and a mentorship program for its first year residents. The Sentinel president, senior George Lyman said his favorite tradition is the dorm’s annual Jimmy Dunne feast week. “We started out the week with the whole dorm having a steak dinner at South Dining Hall on Sunday night,” he said. “For the rest of the week, we had a bowling night, a Spikeball tournament, a chicken McNugget eating contest and an informal formal at Jays Lounge. That week really brought us together as a hall and helped strengthen our community.” Lyman said the dorm’s presentation focused on improvement. “We wanted to show how much the hall community had grown in one year,” he said. “We talked about all the events that had been started in Dunne this year, like parents’ weekend, weekly service trips to Saint Adalbert’s and more and then talked about how we built on events already created.” Lyman said the dorm’s leadership saw over 100 people attend some hall councils, and he thanked Dunne’s rector Fr. Matthew Kuczora. “This is his last year as our rector, and it is clear to everyone who has lived in Dunne he is truly a special person and deserves some recognition,” he said. “We are going to miss him a lot next year, but the foundations he set up for Dunne will live on.”Tags: Carroll Hall, dunne hall, flaherty hall, Hall of the year, HPC, Men’s Hall of the Year, Women’s Hall of the Year
“The energy he lost having top hold his position could have cost him at the end, but he was brave. “He ran in the French Derby and Joseph thought he would stay, then he disappointed in the Irish Derby so we were a little bit worried, we didn’t really know what to expect. “I thought looking at him there that maybe he was running a little bit on empty at the end, but Joseph felt that he wasn’t stopping, so obviously what you are looking at and what he felt may be two different things. “I suppose we’ll have to leave it (Leger) open, the lads will talk and decide what they want to do, but he looks like he’s definitely getting a mile and a half so you’d have to be very happy with him. “If he was going he’ll go straight there, but the lads will decide that, have a good chat and see if it’s worth doing it or not. “It’s a little up in the air, but if he’s going he’ll go straight there.” Andrew Balding said of the runner-up: “We were very pleased with that run, obviously. “As he’s a gelding, he won’t be going for the Leger, but he could go for the Great Voltigeur at York if he’s OK. “He’s a lovely horse for the future.” Medrano was slightly disappointing for David Brown. He said: “He stayed on OK and he’ll be better over the Leger trip.” Highland Reel eventually ran out a determined winner of the Neptune Investment Management Gordon Stakes at Goodwood. Aidan O’Brien’s Irish challenger was the 7-4 favourite after finishing fifth in the Irish Derby and tracked the pacesetters into the home straight. Early leader Space Age began to falter inside the last half-mile, but Scottish moved powerfully towards the lead and Highland Reel was briefly short of room after being held in by Disegno. However, once the gap game, Highland Reel knuckled down to his task under Joseph O’Brien and wore down Scottish to score by a length and a half. Disegno was five lengths back in third. The winning jockey said: “I was out early enough and I had plenty of horse. When you have the horse, the gaps come. “He tried his heart out and had a nice position. “I was a bit worried early doors as we went slow, but in fairness to him he tries and he handles this track well.” Asked whether Highland Reel could be a St Leger candidate, O’Brien said: “He definitely could be. I never thought he’d need a mile and six (furlongs). He did well to win off a slow pace today.” O’Brien snr was guarded on a trip to Doncaster, but was not ruling it out. He said: “We always thought a mile and a half was going to be plenty far enough for him. “It was a tough enough race. He relaxed early and then he had to hold his position. Press Association
Facebook564Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Washington Governor Jay InsleeGov. Jay Inslee announced today that Colorado Governor Jared Polis and Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak are joining Washington, Oregon and California in the Western States Pact — a working group of Western state governors with a shared vision for modifying stay at home orders and fighting COVID-19.“In Washington state, our decisions are guided by public health data and science and this is a principle we share up and down the West Coast. Governor Polis and Governor Sisolak are taking that approach as well, and the addition of their states will strengthen this regional partnership and save lives,” Inslee said.“Coloradans are working together to slow the spread of COVID-19 and have important information to share with and to gain from other states. I’m thrilled Colorado is joining the Western States Pact,” Gov. Jared Polis said. “There’s no silver bullet that will solve this pandemic until there is a cure so we must have a multifaceted and bold approach in order to slow the spread of the virus, keep our people safe and help our economy rebound.”“I’m honored to have the state of Nevada join the Western States Pact and believe the sharing of critical information and best practices on how to mitigate the spread, protect the health and safety of our residents, and reopen responsibly will be invaluable as we chart our paths forward,” Gov. Steve Sisolak said. “Millions of visitors from our fellow Western states travel to Nevada every year as a premier tourism destination and this partnership will be vital to our immediate recovery and long-term economic comeback.”Earlier this month, Inslee, along with California Governor Gavin Newsom and Oregon Governor Kate Brown, announced they would be working together under a shared vision for gradually modifying their state’s stay at home orders and fighting COVID-19.They listed three shared principles as foundational to the agreement:Our residents’ health comes first. As home to nearly one in five Americans and gateway to the rest of the world, the West Coast has an outsized stake in controlling and ultimately defeating COVID-19.Health outcomes and science – not politics – will guide these decisions. Modifications to our states’ stay at home orders must be made based off our understanding of the total health impacts of COVID-19, including: the direct impact of the disease on our communities; the health impact of measures introduced to control the spread in communities —particularly felt by those already experiencing social disadvantage prior to COVID-19; and our health care systems’ ability to ensure care for those who may become sick with COVID-19 and other conditions. This effort will be guided by data. We need to see a decline in the rate of spread of the virus before large-scale reopening, and we will be working in coordination to identify the best metrics to guide this.Our states will only be effective by working together. Each state will work with its local leaders and communities within its borders to understand what’s happening on the ground and adhere to our agreed upon approach.As part of the Western States Pact, the governors commit to working together toward the following four goals:Protecting vulnerable populations at risk for severe disease if infected. This includes a concerted effort to prevent and fight outbreaks in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities.Ensuring an ability to care for those who may become sick with COVID-19 and other conditions. This will require adequate hospital surge capacity and supplies of personal protective equipment.Mitigating the non-direct COVID-19 health impacts, particularly on disadvantaged communities.Protecting the general public by ensuring any successful lifting of interventions includes the development of a system for testing, tracking and isolating. The states will work together to share best practices.
TINTON FALLS – A new generation of civic-minded young women got to spend a day last week with political veterans who want to show them how to start making an impact in the world.The event at Monmouth Regional High School was sponsored by the 12th annual Running and Winning conference sponsored by the American Association of University Women (AAUW) of Northern Monmouth County, the Junior League of Monmouth County, the Greater Red Bank League of Women Voters of New Jersey and the Red Bank Chapter of Hadassah.“Women are 51 percent of the population and their voices should be heard where decisions are made,” said Marian Wattenbarger of the AAUW, at the day-long, nonpartisan event that brought together about 60 female students from nine area high schools and female legislators and policy makers from the Two River area. “And I would say the events in the last few years have clearly raised interest.” By Jay Cook | The conference zeroed in on educating young women about their meaningful voices and how they can make differences in their communities, said Linda Bricker, a member of the Junior League of Monmouth County.“To really affect change, sometimes you need to reach a point of becoming elected to a position to change laws,” she said. The best way to educate the younger generation, Wattenbarger found, has been to create a pipeline with current legislators, showcasing how women can be successful in politics.About 15 different female elected and appointed officials took turns meeting with the small groups of students during the morning session. The conversations ranged from issues in their towns or districts to their specific roads to elected office.Assemblywoman Serena DiMaso (R-13) took one of those unique paths. After moving to Holmdel in the early 1990s, she joined her local parent-teacher association and volunteered to be what she called “the cupcake lady.” She eventually worked her way up to the Holmdel Township Committee, then the Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders and most recently, the State Assembly. Wattenbarger and other members from the Running and Winning steering committee admitted they were expecting a trend, especially considering the Parkland, Florida school shooting on Feb. 14 and the 19th anniversary of the Columbine High School Shooting the day after the conference on April 20.“This is a time in which there is clearly polarization in the country,” said Wattenbarger, “but we come together and are all committed to helping women find their voices.”Women legislators from the Two River area spoke with high school students about their paths to elected office. Some of the officials who attended were, from left to right, Fair Haven Councilwoman Susan Sorensen, Hazlet Deputy Mayor Sue Kiley, Monmouth County Surrogate Rosemarie Peters and Atlantic Highlands Mayor Rhonda Le Grice. Photo by Jay CookNEW JERSEY AND WOMEN LEGISLATORSNew Jersey has been one of the more progressive states for women involvement in politics over the last decade. Data from the Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers University indicates the Garden State ranked 16th for the most female legislators at the state level: 29.2 percent of the state Legislature and Assembly is female.Both of New Jersey’s first two lieutenant governors are women – Kim Guadagno and Sheila Oliver – and female officials comprise a third of Gov. Phil Murphy’s 24-member cabinet. Additionally, 82 of the 566 municipalities in New Jersey, or 14.5 percent, are led by female mayors.While figures may be increasing compared to years past, many involved in the Running and Winning steering committee hope more women in Monmouth County step up.“We are intelligent, compassionate, organized and innovative,” said Sue Flynn, also of the Junior League of Monmouth County. “Having more women in leadership positions can only make our country and the world a better place.” “They need to have a role model, somebody that has been there, done that, and is honest with them,” DiMaso said of her message to the young girls. “It’s not always easy. There are days the laundry doesn’t always get done or your dinner’s later than it should be and it’s OK. You’ll come out on the other end.”Involvement in the community is key, stressed Red Bank Borough Councilwoman Kathy Horgan. The longtime Democrat jumped right into volunteer work after moving there in 1999 and has not looked back.Horgan, the only female on Red Bank’s governing body, believes more women should take a chance and get involved in public policy.“What I want women to know is that they can make a difference,” said Horgan. “I know, that sounds trite, but it’s true. Women are nurturing, more willing to compromise and listen.”This article was first published in the April 26 – May 3, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times. High School Girls Encouraged To Consider Politics | And those young women got a taste of the action. After meeting female councilmembers, mayors and state assemblywomen, the girls broke off into 14 smaller groups to discuss changing specific policy important to them.They were tasked with petitioning a mock school board about an ongoing, concerning issue. The possible choices were about mental health issues in school, school safety, environmental issues and increasing inclusivity.The one topic that garnered the most attention – considering current national events – was mental health awareness in students. Eight groups focused on that issue.
By Bruce Fuhr,The Nelson Daily SportsThe Mount Sentinel Wildcats took it on the chin at the UBC/O High School Girl’s Volleyball Tournament Saturday in Kelowna.The Cats finished in the bottom half of the 50-team tournament, dropping five of six matches in the process.“Not really sure what happened, but we just didn’t play well (compared to last weekend) and the only explanation that makes some sense is that we are a very young team (5 grade 10’s),” said coach Joe Moreira.“On a positive note we did play good teams –not great teams – and we did extend a few matches to three sets, but for the most part it was very difficult to recognize the team on the floor.”“Same uniforms as last week but very different play,” Moreira added.The Cats started the weekend getting swept in two games by South Kamloops. Next up, Correlieu from Quesnel. The same result, just in this match Mount Sentinel was able to take a game, losing 2-1.Princess Margaret of Penticton they defeated the Cats in straight games 2-0 before NorKam of Kelowna outlasted Mount Sentinel 2-1.“This was the crossover (game) and it kind of stung because we lost 16-14 in the third,” Moreira said.Vernon made it five straight losses for the Wildcats, beating the Kootenay squad 2-1. Moreira’s squad managed to finally win a match, dumping G.W. Graham of Chilliwack 2-0.“On another positive note, we are back in Kelowna at Best of West tournament (Friday),” Moreira explained.“This event is very much like the UBC-O tournament – lots of teams and some very strong teams. We clearly hope to be more competitive.”[email protected]
