They scored 24 straight after Vanderbilt jumped out to a 21-3 lead midway through the second quarter, their first comeback win since Sept. 27, 2003, at Kentucky.“Mistakes happen in football,” Scarlett said. “It’s how you fight through adversity and how you respond, and I think we responded really well.” Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew The finish was nearly overshadowed by an incident in the second quarter on a Florida punt return with SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey on hand to watch.An official held back Mullen as he yelled at Mason, who was near the Gators’ sideline after checking on the Commodore defender whose helmet was knocked off by a hit by linebacker James Houston IV. Both teams spilled onto the field, drawing unsportsmanlike conduct penalties.“We’re not going to get into that publicly at all,” Mullen said. “Derek’s a really close friend of mine, and I think we both, our sideline, we got to make sure our sideline we’re cleaner in that situation, and I’m sure he probably thinks the same thing. But there’s nothing carrying over from my end.”The penalty cost the Gators their leading tackler; Vosean Joseph was ejected for his second unsportsmanlike conduct penalty of the first half. Two people escorted an emotional Joseph off the field.Mullen and Mason hugged each other at midfield after the game. Mason said they talked.

HUGE RESPONSE TO DCCC PRESENT APPEAL BUT 1,300 CHILDREN STILL NEED GIFTS

first_imgThe Donegal County Childcare Team has revealed it has received requests from 530 families for presents for more than 1,300 children this Christmas.Percy with Donegal County Childcare Committee last year. Pic Clive WassonLast weekend the DCCC revealed it was saddened at not being in a position to meet all family’s requests such was the huge volume of requests.The team at Donegal County Childcare are delighted with the generous response to the Presents for Percy Appeal since the publication of the open letter by DCCC Manager Avril Mc Monagle on Sunday last on Donegal Daily. Avril said since Monday morning at 9am, members of the public have been dropping by the DCCC Office to lend a hand. We have had everything from small pocket money donations from children to larger donations from businesses.Transition year students from a secondary school in Falcarrgh are organasing a fundraiser as a school project, shop workers have set up collection boxes and local businesses have pledged donations.Anonymous individuals have made online donations, young people will be collecting outside a nightclub in Letterkenny at the weekend and Supervalue have put a number of collection points at different branches in place.Avril’s letter has been viewed almost 15,000 times on the DCCC Facebook page and has been shared widely. Unlike other appeals for general toys, the Presents for Percy Appeal is unique as it aims to respond to the actual preferred Santa choices of children themselves.DCCC and the 19 organisations operating as distributers for the appeal, actually purchase specific toys and gifts that children have requested. By taking this targeted approach, parents are prevented from getting into unnecessary debt.Avril said – currently we have requests on behalf of 530 families with 1,300 children.To date we have raised €18,000 but still have a shortfall of approximately €10,000. Although the appeal aims to provide a maximum allocation of €50 per child, some organisations have applied for as little as €12 per child. So every small amount makes a huge difference.A big thank you to everyone so far for supporting the appeal and to the Donegal media for helping us spread the word. If you would like to donate money to the appeal Cheques/Postal Orders can be made payable to the Presents for Percy Appeal, and sent to Donegal County Childcare, 10-11 St Columba’s Terrace, High Road, Letterkenny.

TANAISTE’S REFUSAL TO MEET FULLERTON FAMILY A DISGRACE – Mac LOCHLAINN

first_imgSinn Féin Spokesperson on Justice and Equality, Deputy Pádraig Mac Lochlainn has said that Tánaiste Joan Burton’s refusal to meet with the family of Cllr Eddie Fullerton is a “disgrace”.Deputy Mac Lochlainn said following new revelations on collusion, he had asked the Tánaiste during Leaders Questions to meet to listen to the Fullerton family’s concerns regarding the circumstances leading to his murder and the subsequent investigation by Gardaí.He revealed “I have since written to the Tánaiste to seek to arrange a convenient time. I have now received a reply from the Tánaiste’s office to inform me that the Tánaiste is too busy to meet with the family. I think her excuse is a disgrace. “In 1984, it was a Labour Minister, Liam Kavanagh, who refused to meet Cllr Eddie Fullerton in Leinster House. It appears that history is now repeating itself with the Labour Tánaiste not having the decency to afford the Fullerton family the time that they deserve.”He addd that despite the deep hurt caused to the family and the dismissive attitudes of state authorities, they have been relentless in their campaign for the truth.“They deserve truth and respect, not further provocation and dismissal. I don’t believe that Tánaiste Burton can’t find the time to help the family get to this truth.”TANAISTE’S REFUSAL TO MEET FULLERTON FAMILY A DISGRACE – Mac LOCHLAINN was last modified: July 1st, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalEddie Fullertonfamilymeetinglast_img read more
