Florida Woman Calls 911 After Fridge Breaks; Officers Bring New One

first_imgThe Martin County Sheriff’s Office posted about the situation on Facebook, writing, “Cheryl Nanartonis believed she was in crisis, her refrigerator broke down and her food was going to spoil. She said her resources were limited and she didn’t have the funds to buy a replacement.”“So Cheryl called 911. Although 911 is reserved for emergencies only, deputies were dispatched to Cheryl’s Jensen Beach home. They explained to Cheryl the importance of reserving 911 for emergencies only. But that’s not all,” it adds.The post continues, “Realizing how upset Cheryl was, they knew they couldn’t clear the call without taking action. So Deputy Marcum, Deputy Elliot and Sgt. Flynn made arrangements with the Jensen Beach Goodwill to donate a gently used refrigerator to Cheryl. The deputies even had it delivered, and Cheryl was back on track.”The Sheriff’s Office ended the post by thanking Sam Fincher and Peggy Brewer at the local Goodwill for helping solve Nanartonis’ problem.If you don’t try, you’ll never know! Courtesy: Martin County Sheriff’s Office/Facebook One Martin County woman recently called 911 for a different kind of “emergency.”When her refrigerator broke and she did not have the money needed to repair it, she decided to call the police and see if they could help. Why not, right?It turns out, that was a smart move on her part.Officers responding to the Jensen Beach home of Cheryl Nanartonis informed her that 911 is meant for emergencies only.Fortunately for her though, they also decided to figure out a way to help her.last_img read more

Middletown’s Unforgettable Thanksgiving Day Football Game

first_imgMIDDLETOWN – On Thanksgiving the township’s two public high schools come together – and then square off – for the traditional Thanksgiving Day football game. For years the game has also served as Senior Day, when seniors are recognized for their contributions to the football teams, band, cheer and dance teams. With both Middletown South and Middletown North knocked out of the NJSIAA playoffs, emotions were high at the game, the last hurrah for the students involved in their beloved Friday Night Lights. There was also romance. At halftime, Raritan High School history teacher Gregory Casha proposed to his girlfriend, Middletown South cheerleading coach Cristina Fox, surrounded by the cheerleading squads and lots of cheers from the crowd. Middletown South went on to win the game 21-7. Pamela Rogers, school board president, presented them with the coveted Middletown Cup.center_img Photos by Patrick Oliverolast_img read more

LVR Bomber great Greg DeVries in a class of his own — selected to U of Alberta Sports Wall of Fame

first_imgBy Bruce FuhrThe Nelson Daily SportsThe only player in Bomber history to have his number retired is now one of a few Golden Bear basketball stars to be inducted into the University of Alberta Sports Wall of Fame.L.V. Rogers’ grad Greg DeVries earned the elite honour during ceremonies in Edmonton in the fall of 2010.DeVries, back in Nelson City to watch his kids participate in the Cyswogn’Fun Triathlon during the B.C. Day Holiday weekend, talked about his recent achievement.“It’s pretty special to be recognized by the induction committee and join the elite list of University of Alberta athletes on the universities’ Sports Wall of Fame,” DeVries told The Nelson Daily.“It’s definitely the biggest in my career but right up there with having my number retired at LVR.”The Sports Wall of Fame honour is awarded to former University of Alberta Athletes who established outstanding achievements while participating in the University of Alberta Athletic Programs.DeVries, who graduated from U of A in 1996 with a Bachelor of Education, did more than just provide outstanding achievements. The 37-year-old Abbotsford math teacher was named MVP in 1995 and received national recognition twice as an Academic All-Canadian and twice as a Sport All-Canadian as a shooting guard with the Alberta Golden Bears Men’s Basketball Team.Under the guidance of head coach Don Horwood, he shattered the all-time leading scoring record at Alberta in December of his final season— the record now stands at 2,740 points — and also won the U of A’s Wilson Challenge Trophy and was named CIS National Championship First All-Star from 1993 to 1996.“It’s pretty special honour because the last basketball player to be inducted was in the 1950s and there have been a lot of great players to go through the Bears’ program since,”  explained DeVries, part of LVR 1992 Graduating class.“So for them to recognize me is quite humbling.”Of course, basketball is a team game. And while the individual achievements are nice, the real goal is to win the grand prize. DeVries was part of that special team in 1994. The Bears, under the guidance of head coach Don Horwood, posted an 18-2 record in the regular season en route to claiming the first-ever CIS Men’s Basketball championship with a 73-66 victory over McMaster at the Metro Centre in Halifax.During the run DeVries dropped in a whopping 35 points in a 89-85 overtime victory over St. Mary’s during the opening round of the tournament.“We were down by two with four seconds left and I made a shot to put the game into overtime,” DeVries said. “That was definitely a highlight for me and a coming out party as nobody really knew about me until then.”Nobody really knew about DeVries during his first few seasons despite coming to Alberta as one of the top shooters in B.C. High School Boy’s Basketball.At the AA provincials, DeVries, who once scored 82 points — a Bomber single-game record — during a home date against the Grand Forks Wolves, set many marks that still stand today.However, at Alberta the Bomber grad struggled to find any consistency until the end of his sophomore year.Once his shooting stroke started to click, DeVries became one of the most feared weapons in the Golden Bear arsenal.“This (honour) really out of blue for me,” DeVries, who teamed up with Steve Nash to form a heavyweight back court for a Basketball B.C. Provincial Team. “They have a lot of athletes on the wall of fame. I never imagined for one minute being part of it so being there be is pretty cool.”Retired from competitive basketball, DeVries had joined the ranks of father and coach.The father of three — Tyus, Abigail and Keyan — and married to wife Lisa is currently is the math department head at Abbotsford Collegiate School in the Fraser Valley.However DeVries still remains active on the sports scene as he coaches basketball and [email protected]last_img read more

first_imgFINISH LINES: Unbeaten champion Songbird is scheduled to work Sunday morning for a possible start in the Grade II Summertime Oaks at 1 1/16 miles a week from Saturday, June 18. Nominations for the Oaks close today . . . Trainer Simon Callaghan hopes to have 2015 Kentucky Derby runner-up Firing Line ready for the Grade II San Diego Handicap at Del Mar July 23 and a possible meeting with 2014 Kentucky Derby winner California Chrome. Firing Line worked five furlongs Monday in 1:02.60 . . . Trainer Doug O’Neill and owner/player Steve Young will be Tom Quigley‘s guests, 10:50 a.m. Saturday and 12:20 p.m. Sunday, in the East Paddock Gardens. Santiago Gonzalez9712161212%41%$637,917 Martin Garcia5274813%37%$413,200 NYQUIST COULD ‘STRETCH HIS LEGS IN WEEK OR SO’            Kentucky Derby winner Nyquist has settled in nicely at his Santa Anita headquarters after arriving late Sunday from Maryland, where he was upset by Santa Anita Derby winner Exaggerator in the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico on May 21.“He looks great,” trainer Doug O’Neill said Thursday morning of the son of Uncle Mo owned by Paul and Zillah Reddam. “He’s back on the track, he’s jogging two miles. We’re looking for him to stretch his legs and have an easy breeze in about a week or so.“He’s doing really well.” HIKING HITS THE TRAIL IN MARATHON STAKE            Hiking seems like an appropriate name for a horse about to run a mile and a half on turf, and that’s the case with the five-year-old mare entered in Sunday’s $75,000 Possibly Perfect Stakes for fillies and mares, three and up.“I think she’ll get the distance,” said Simon Callaghan, who trains the five-year-old bay mare for Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners.Although she’s never run that far in 18 career starts, 10 in the United States and eight in England, her style of running indicates it’s within her wheelhouse.She generally comes from well out of it and was third in an overnight race at 1 1/8 miles on turf May 5, prior to winning by a head under the same conditions on March 24.The Possibly Perfect, named for the Grade I-winning distaff star trained by the late Bobby Frankel two decades ago, marks the first added money race in the U.S. for Hiking. GRASS IS GREENER FOR PRAT IN RIDING RACEThrough 20 racing days, Flavien Prat and perennial Southern California riding king Rafael Bejarano are in a flat-footed tie for Santa Anita’s Spring Meet title at 23 victories each.Most of Prat’s wins have come on the turf, a surface on which he rode almost exclusively in his native France before coming to the United States, where he has become an international presence under agent Derek Lawson.Of Prat’s 23 wins, 16 have come on Santa Anita’s turf from 46 rides, 35 percent. He also has four seconds, seven thirds and grass earnings of $941,913. He has won seven of 30 on dirt, 23 percent, with five seconds and three thirds, for earnings of $253,858.But he’d better make hay while the sun shines because Santa Anita will offer no turf racing from June 20 through the end of the meet, July 10, when the course will be renovated.“In Europe we only ride on turf or on the training track, so that’s where I honed my skills on the grass,” said the 23-year-old Prat. “I’m getting good horses to ride and that builds my confidence. That’s the key: riding the right horse. I’m grateful to all the trainers, especially Richard (Mandella) who has helped me a lot.” Rafael Bejarano9723181724%60%$1,390,885 Mike Smith2455021%42%$373,666 FAST BELMONT TRACK SHOULDN’T HAMPER EXAGGERATORKent Desormeaux, who won the 2009 Belmont Stakes aboard Summer Bird, guns for his second on favored Exaggerator Saturday in the 148th Belmont Stakes, the final jewel in racing’s Triple Crown.Exaggerator won both the Santa Anita Derby and the Preakness on sloppy tracks, but Kent feels the colt owned in part and trained by his older brother, Keith, will acquit himself well on a fast track over the mile and a half Belmont Stakes distance.“The rain and sloppy track did give me a little more confidence in the Preakness,” Desormeaux said before leaving for New York, “because Exaggerator was tried and true on an off track (after capturing the Santa Anita Derby by 6 ¼ lengths in the slop).“The Belmont is longer than the Preakness (by 5/16ths of a mile), so nobody knows whether a horse will get the distance, but I’m hopeful that because Exaggerator’s been such a tremendous ride of late, and if he maintains his demeanor, I don’t see why he wouldn’t.”Post time for the Belmont is 3:37 p.m. Pacific Time. NBC’s telecast of the Belmont will start at 2 p.m. Pacific. Post time for the first of 11 live races at Santa Anita Saturday is 12 noon.

It was just a lot of little things all over . . . There were no fractures anywhere. He just needed a few months off.”Ashleyluvssugar last ran Aug. 22, 2015, finishing second in the Grade II Del Mar Handicap at 1 3/8 miles on turf. Prior to that he was sixth in Monmouth Park’s Grade I United Nations at the same distance, won the Grade II Charles Whittingham at a mile and a half on grass at Santa Anita last May, the Grade II San Luis Rey also at a mile and a half last March, and a Santa Anita overnight turf race at 1 1/8 miles early last February.Returning in a mile race can be interpreted in a variety of ways.“There are different kinds of miles,” Eurton pointed out, “like the Shoemaker facing Grade I horses, but that said, the Crystal Water is going to be tough enough against Cal-breds.”The field for the Crystal Water, race two of 11: Poshky, Fernando Perez: Zinvor, Santiago Gonzalez; Ashleyluvssugar, Rafael Bejarano; Boozer, Edwin Maldonado; Alert Bay, Tyler Baze; and Spirit Rules, Iggy Puglisi.

Heartbreaking picture of homeless boy sparks outrage from Donegal TD

first_imgDonegal TD Pearse Doherty has hit out at the government over child homelessness after a photo of a young boy eating dinner on the side of a street emerged online.The photo showed ‘Sam’, a five-year-old boy, eating food off a sheet of cardboard on the streets of Dublin.The image was shared by Homeless Street Cafe volunteers after a busy night in the city. “Can we really accept this?” the volunteers wrote.The Facebook post prompted Pearse Doherty TD to raise the issue in the Dáil today, accusing the Government of hiding behind figures instead of tackling the growing child homelessness crisis.Doherty said: “The volunteer group who met Sam made clear that his mother is trying her best to provide nutritious home cooked meals for her children. “Like so many parents of homeless children in this State, their emergency accommodation strictly forbids families from cooking meals for their children.“This is Sam’s life. Without a home, he is left without the comfort and security that should be the right of every child.“That is the life that Fine Gael have condemned nearly 4,000 children like Sam to.”Pearse Doherty TDDoherty said that homelessness and the housing crisis in Ireland today is a ‘national shame’.“The moral stain of child homelessness is creating a lost generation of children who are having their childhood stolen,” Doherty said.The solutions to the crisis, Doherty told the government, lie in Sinn Féin’s alternative budget: “Our alternative budget would have invested an additional €1bn in public housing, affordable rental and affordable purchase homes and introduced a rent freeze and refundable tax credit for renters.“These are the solutions that are needed to deal with the housing and homelessness crisis. Instead, you and your partners in Fianna Fáil chose to ignore these people in a budget without ambition, ideas or much needed investment that would have given workers and families a real break.”Heartbreaking picture of homeless boy sparks outrage from Donegal TD was last modified: October 17th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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)last_img read more
