Biocenter_img EHS names new boys’ soccer coach – July 13, 2016 WINTER HARBOR — In a fast-paced world, time seems to stand still on the Grindstone Neck golf course.The course not only embodies the characteristics of traditional tracks, it unites a community through memories.Grindstone Association will celebrate the 125-year anniversary of its golf course with a scramble on Friday, July 29.Festivities will start at 11:30 a.m. and include lunch, a shotgun scramble, a hole event and cocktails. RSVP by July 18.This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textBuilt in 1891, Grindstone Neck ranks among the 100 oldest golf courses in the nation. The course, which is open from May through October, features views of the harbor and Frenchman Bay. Golfers can see the ocean from all nine holes.Golf originated in Scotland centuries ago before coming to the United States. Courses initially followed the terrain and incorporated natural elements into the game. Now, Grindstone Neck Chairman Doug Dick says most of the good golf courses are “immaculate” without a grass blade out of place — but not Grindstone Neck.“This is the way it used to be,” Dick says. “We don’t have sand traps like most golf courses, but we’ve got our own hazards.”Those hazards include rocks, tall grass, wind and fog.Dick, who summers in Winter Harbor, says he has played a lot of golf over his lifetime, and he has met people who belong to the finest clubs in the world.“They talk about how this is their favorite,” Dick says of Grindstone Neck. “Because it’s not manicured, a lot of crazy things happen. It’s a throwback.”Golfers (from left) Steven Kampmann, Doug Dick, Custis Swope, Edith Dixon and Kevin Conley spent Thursday morning reminiscing about the Grindstone Neck golf course at the yacht club in Winter Harbor.

Dick and four year-round locals — Edith Dixon, Custis Swope, Steven Kampmann and Kevin Conley — spend Thursday morning reminiscing about the course inside the Grindstone Neck Yacht Club.Conley, the course’s superintendent, grew up caddying for Grindstone Neck for $1.50 a game. He and the other caddies would kill time playing cards or baseball on the first fairway. While working, they would bet sodas on which golfers would win.“When you’re 11 years old and all your friends are down here caddying,” Conley says, “there was nothing better.”Conley caddied for Swope and Dixon as well as Kampmann’s parents. He said one of the funniest matchups was Kampmann’s mother and a local Conley called “Mr. Pepper.”“His mother was the best golfer, and Mr. Pepper,” Conley hesitates, “didn’t do so well.”Conley recalls one time Kampmann’s mom asked Mr. Pepper, who “used to swear a lot,” if he wanted to continue after he pounded the ball into the ground on the fifth hole.“He turned to the caddies and said, ‘We might as well keep up the comedy for them,’” Conley says, smiling.Generations of locals have their own stories about the course.“The great thing is that my kids and my grandchildren are all playing golf in this community,” Swope says. “A lot of them learned to golf here.”Kampmann recalls a comment he made to his son, who was 9 years old at the time, while the pair waited their turn at the third tee: “Someday, if you ever get married, I can’t imagine a better place to ask someone.” Years later, Kampmann’s son proposed to his wife on the third tee.Grindstone Neck Association will celebrate its golf course’s 125-year anniversary on July 29. PHOTO BY TAYLOR VORTHERMSKampmann says that, just the other day on the golf course, he and his sons ran into someone who used to caddie for Kampmann’s dad.“They never met my father,” Kampmann says of his children. “What I love about this is the continuity of relationships.”Dixon values the memories she has golfing with her late husband, Fitz Dixon. She says he notched four holes-in-one on the course before passing away in 2006.“Being a small community, we all kind of do everything together,” Edith Dixon says. “It can be an expensive thing to keep up. But if we didn’t have it, we couldn’t function.”“It ties the town together,” Conley adds.Conley tears up when discussing what the course means to him.“I’ve spent practically my whole life here,” he says. “Now, I have a 5-year-old son who gets to come to work with me. It’s very special. He’s going to grow up around this like I did.”Find more information about Grindstone Neck at grindstonegolf.com.

Warriors’ Andre Iguodala offered Lakers’ rookie Brandon Ingram perspective on bench role

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error After all, Iguodala accepted a bench role for the sake of winning an NBA championship after already cementing his resumé as an All-Star and U.S. Olympic gold medalist. Iguodala maintained “it wasn’t that hard” to accept a bench role with the Warriors under those circumstances. Yet, he revealed to Walton the complexity of his internal feelings.“‘Luke, I dreaded that,’” Iguodala said. “‘But I’ll give the guy some words of wisdom so he’ll play hard for you.’”Iguodala also sounded open toward providing Ingram advice for another reason.“I’m a fan of the kid. It’s easy, especially when you got a guy that’s willing to take some advice. You want the best for him,” Iguodala said. “Anybody else, I’m like ‘No man.’ I’m not giving (feedback) to these young kids these days. They don’t listen.”Ingram did, though. “It’s him buying into a role,” Ingram said of Iguodala. “He embraces it and all he cares about is winning.” Ingram called the offseason call with Iguodala “really brief.” Ingram added that he did not ask Iguodala specifically about coming off the bench. Yet, their talk still centered on how to thrive on a loaded depth chart.“‘You’re good,’” Iguodala told Ingram. “‘You’re so far ahead of where you think. But keep having that mindset.’”Iguodala later praised Ingram’s humble demeanor and contended that “offensively, he’s light years ahead of me.” Iguodala then predicted the “sky is the limit” for Ingram before calling on him to become more assertive without playing selfishly. Meanwhile, Ingram has admired Iguodala’s on-ball defense and ability to create deflections, qualities that earned him the 2015 Finals MVP. “I’m still learning how I can affect the game in different ways,” Ingram said. “Offensively, I think it will become easier for me with coming into the lanes and picking my spots. But defensively, I’m doing really well.” Ingram posted a career-high 16 points on 6-of-12 shooting, three rebounds and three turnovers in his first NBA start on Wednesday against Golden State. Before that, the Lakers liked how Ingram handled his bench role without complaint. His workload also gradually increased in ball handling, posting up, defending and finishing games.That growth can be partly traced back to Ingram’s phone call with Iguodala. “The NBA is a crazy world, especially when you’re as young as some of these young guys are,” Walton said. “It’s important to have relationships with some older vets that have been around.”center_img LOS ANGELES >> As Lakers forward Brandon Ingram ran up and down the court during Summer League play, plenty of focus centered on his physical readiness. Behind the scenes, Lakers coach Luke Walton worked on something else to ensure Ingram’s foundation became sturdy. When Walton talked with Golden State forward Andre Iguodala in Las Vegas, their conversation went beyond reminiscing about playing together at the University of Arizona, or Walton serving as an assistant at Golden State the previous two years. Mindful that he planned to bring Ingram off the bench to start his rookie season, Walton talked with Iguodala about offering perspective to the Lakers’ No. 2 pick. “Andre is a one of the smarter players I’ve been around,” Walton said before the Lakers hosted the Warriors on Friday at Staples Center. “He cares about the game of basketball and he does things the right way. I felt that Brandon could learn a lot from him.”last_img read more


Ex-Liverpool man: Gerrard and Carragher ‘didn’t like Benitez that much’

first_imgStephane Henchoz has told talkSPORT he is not surprised Rafael Benitez is having problems at Chelsea.And the former Liverpool defender claimed that Anfield stalwarts Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher “didn’t like him that much” when the Spaniard was in charge at the Merseyside club.Benitez guided Liverpool to their 2005 Champions League triumph while their manager and remains a popular figure among their fans.But he is deeply unpopular among Chelsea supporters and there have been reports he has fallen out with players at Stamford Bridge, which Benitez and Blues skipper John Terry both recently denied.And Henchoz said: “I think he’s a very good manager in that he knows a lot about football and the details.“The only problem for me is his man management and I’m not surprised things aren’t going so well for him at Chelsea.“I think he has some arrogance about him. The way he speaks to the players and the way he treats the players is not always the best.“Even if you are professional you still would like the manager to have a few words and speak a bit with you. Rafa Benitez only speaks to you when he needs you or wants something from you.“And I know that even Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher, who spent a lot of time with him, didn’t like him that much.“When Chelsea signed him as manager, I was sure that things would not go smoothly.”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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more


SA para-cycling team shines in Europe

first_imgThe announcement of the team is expected by the end of June. Never before had a South African cyclist achieved the feat. Strong performancesApart from the medallists, South African riders who performed particularly well in the World Cup series included T2 tri-cyclist Yusthin Lintnaar, who claimed one fourth and two fifth place finishes. Although track racing is her preferred discipline, her world class all-round cycling capability was proven by the bronze medal finish she achieved in the Merano road race and, more remarkably, by the UCI World Cup leader jersey she won for the overall best-performing rider in the European leg of the UCI Para-cycling Road World Cup series. Roxy Burns (C4) used the European UCI road World Cup series to prepare for the 2013/2014 track World Championships. South Africa’s national para-cycling team returned from Europe on Tuesday evening having earned a number of accolades in back-to-back UCI Para-cycling Road World Cup races in Merano, Italy and Segovia, Spain. Announced himself with a bangGeorge Rex, the 2013 T1 tri-cycling national champion, was selected to the South African team with the aim of introducing him to international racing. He announced himself with a bang, claiming silver medal finishes in both the time trial and road race events in which he competed in Segovia, and set the platform for a successful international career. “For many of our riders competing in a World Cup in Europe for the first time, the experience was a revelation, and they are motivated to better their current times,” said team manager JC van der Walt. The South African team to compete in the 2013 UCI Para-cycling Road World Championships in Canada during August/September will be selected on the basis of rider performances in the just completed European World Cup series. While former Formula One driver Zanardi’s stamina and strength made him a deserving winner, his one-of-a-kind, aerodynamically optimised hand-cycle certainly assisted him in clinching the sprint finishes. center_img Pipped at the postHaving positioned himself well to achieve sprint finish wins in both races, he was pipped at the post on both occasions by Paralympic gold medallist Alessandro Zanardi. H4 hand-cycle world champion and Paralympic silver medallist Van Dyk demonstrated his road-racing prowess by claiming silver medal finishes in both the Merano and Segovia World Cups. H2 hand cycling time trial specialist Stuart McCreadie picked up a fifth place finish in Spain and H1 hand-cyclist Justine Asher shone before a serious accident during the Merano hand cycle relay race left her with bone fractures in both legs. The team equalled its previous best tour tally of podium finishes with four silver medals and one bronze medal. Medal winners included Paralympian cyclists Ernst van Dyk and Roxy Burns and their rookie team-mate George Rex. ‘Very satisfying’“Even for those riders who did not win medals, they improved their performances and bettered their personal-best average times. Watching them race was very satisfying and it was a great tour for the team,” Van der Walt said. 20 June 2013 Van Dyk was very satisfied with his performances in Italy and Spain, feeling they confirmed his potential to retain his UCI road race world champion status. He will defend the title in Canada later this year. SAinfo reporter and Cycling South Africa)last_img read more

Dwyane Wade helps Heat top Mavs in likely final Dallas game

Grace Poe files bill to protect govt teachers from malicious accusations “I said, ‘You have those days, right?’ But those are the scary days, those days that you can mess around and be like, ‘Well, I can keep playing.’ And then it’ll be a day that you’re like, ‘No, there’s a reason why I’m retiring.’”Nowitzki and Wade, both added to this weekend’s All-Star game to recognize their decorated careers, entered the final game before the break together midway through the first quarter , which eased the boos on a Wade farewell tour that has been well-received everywhere else.There were some boos as they took the court, but those were quickly drowned out when many in the crowd stood and cheered two players mostly relegated to supporting roles on mediocre teams after so many years of leading championship-chasing franchises.“There was a lot of obviously Wade fans in the building, well-deserved,” Nowitzki said.The true reaction of Dallas fans to Wade came later when they booed the 13-time All-Star whenever he touched the ball. The Mavericks have always thought Wade was the beneficiary of questionable calls in the 2006 NBA Finals, which the Heat clinched with a Game 6 win in Dallas.ADVERTISEMENT PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games PLAY LIST 02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games02:11Trump awards medals to Jon Voight, Alison Krauss LATEST STORIES ‘We are too hospitable,’ says Sotto amid SEA Games woes “We just had a little laugh about it,” Wade said. “It’s moments when you go through this, for me this is the last dance and there are certain games, there’s certain ones that are a little bit more special.”Nowitzki smiled when asked about the exchange after the game. “I was like, ‘That’s bringing some bad memories back.’ He had to laugh. He’s like, ‘Yeah, I had to do it man. This is the building where everything started for me.’”TIP-INSHeat: Finished with seven players in double figures.

Dallas took Game 6 in Miami to win the series.For those who forgot, there were plenty of Twitter posts before the game noting the irony of Wade missing Miami’s shootaround because of an illness in what should be his final Dallas appearance.Wade, who went on to win two more titles with James, was healthy enough to play, and had some vintage moments in the first half. He hit a 3 over Nowitzki before the smooth-shooting 7-footer answered with his familiar one-legged fadeaway over Wade at the other end.“There’s a great karma to each one of them,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “As soon as Wade got his opportunity to go one-on-one against him in the corner, you just knew that somehow Dirk was going to get him with an opportunity on the other end.”Some of the loudest boos for Wade came with him dribbling out the final seconds of the first half isolated on Dallas rookie Jalen Brunson. Wade swished a jumper over the two-time NCAA champion from Villanova to finish the half with a team-high 14 points.The Heat took control without Wade in the third quarter, with Josh Richardson scoring six of the first eight points on a 12-0 run that extended a one-point lead and put Miami ahead by double digits for good.Richardson scored 14 points, and Dion Waiters had 20. Justise Winslow had 11 points and 11 rebounds.Dallas rookie sensation Luka Doncic had 18 points, 12 rebounds and nine assists.

Sammy Hagar To Be Honored By Adopt The Arts

first_imgOn Wednesday, January 31, 2018, Adopt The Arts (adoptthearts.org), the Los Angeles-based charity that preserves and creates arts programs in U.S. public schools, will honor rock icon Sammy Hagar (Van Halen, Chickenfoot) for his humanitarian work at their annual Rock Gala at the historic Avalon Ballroom in Hollywood.EMMY award winning actor Jane Lynch will host the epic night featuring once in a lifetime musical performances and a live auction with priceless experience packages that will help fund music programs in LAUSD elementary schools.Adopt The Arts Co-Founder, Grammy winner Matt Sorum (Guns N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver), will take the stage to salute Sammy Hagar with an all-star lineup of some of the biggest names in Rock N Roll including STEVE STEVENS, (Billy Idol), MICHAEL ANTHONY (Van Halen, The Circle), FRANKY PEREZ (Apocalyptica), DUFFY (The Cult), STEVE LUKATHER (Toto), KENNY ARONOFF (John Mellencamp), PHIL X (Bon Jovi), STEVE SALAS (Rod Stewart), and ROBERT DELEO and DEAN DELEO (Stone Temple Pilots).Tickets to the event are now on sale with prices ranging from $100-$500 each. For more information and to purchase tickets click here.ADOPT THE ARTS – a 501c3 non-profit funding arts programs in public elementary schools – was founded by musician Matt Sorum (Guns N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver) and activist Abby Berman and works to preserve arts programs in U.S. public schools. To raise awareness, ADOPT THE ARTS honors individuals who’ve had a long-lasting impact on music culture and who inspire young musicians to follow in their footsteps. Actress JANE LYNCH was the first celebrity to lend her support to ADOPT THE ARTS and is on the Board of Directors; the advisory board also includes: Slash, John Stamos, Billy Bob Thornton and more.According to Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), 50% of elementary school children in the district are not receiving arts education of any kind. As in many school districts around the country, LAUSD has been slowly eroding its commitment to arts education, reducing the budget incrementally. The LAUSD district also estimates that 80% of its student body is living at or below the poverty line, which means the vast majority of these elementary school children will not have access to the arts outside of school.“Adopt the Arts was born out of the frustration for my own children losing education in the arts,” explains ADOPT THE ARTS Co-Founder Abby Berman. “When the system is failing, we have to take action. With influential people like my Co-Founder Matt Sorum adopting schools, we can preserve this valuable component to childhood development, which is also known to boost test scores. Because Federal and State funding is falling short, the responsibility is upon us as concerned parents and citizens to ensure we’re raising a new generation of healthy and well-rounded individuals.”ADOPT THE ARTS Co-Executive Director and Co-Founder Matt Sorum adds, “We’re starting in our own backyard here in Los Angeles, and we’ll continue to adopt schools across the nation. We believe that art is a universal and necessary language that unites us all, regardless of our backgrounds.”last_img read more
