Patricia Anton, US teacher killed in Dominican Republic, found ‘peace and purpose’ on island

first_imgFacebook(CABARETE, Dominican Republic) — Patricia Anton, an American teacher who was found dead in the Domincan Republic, will be memorialized at the school where she devoted herself for what would be the last years of her life, her family said.A “peace park” will be erected in her honor at 3 Mariposas Montessori School in Cabarete, where Anton worked as a teacher for six years, her cousin Adrianne Machina told ABC News on Thursday.“Her life was so much bigger than her death,” Machina said.Anton’s husband, Patrick, said in a statement to ABC News that the peace park “will become a lasting legacy in the Cabarete community she loved so much.”Police this week revealed details on how Anton, 63, was found in Cabarete, a town on the northern coast of the island nation. However, the circumstances of her death are still not clear.She appeared to have been a victim of a robbery, as police noted items including her phone, computer and television had been stolen. Local police told ABC News Thursday that no one has been detained yet, but they have identified a suspect and an arrest is imminent.Yet for Anton’s family, they are trying to remember her for who she was and what she meant to the community. The Dominican Republic, her cousin said, satisfied her wanderlust and gave her the opportunity to work with children.“The Dominican Republic was her happy place. I think her dream was to retire down there,” Machina said. “The Dominican Republic really gave her purpose and peace.”Machina added that when bringing relatives to visit the island nation, she would be the one to reassure them it was safe.“The last thing she’d want to be is the poster girl for ‘Don’t go to the Dominican Republic,’” her cousin said.Anton’s husband, Patrick, said in a statement that he and his children — a 35-year-old son, a 31-year-old son and 28-year-old daughter — appreciate the support they have received during this time.“We encourage you to spread Patty’s message of kindness and good works,” the family said.Anton was born in Trieste, Italy, but was an American citizen who lived in Detroit and Traverse City, Michigan, before moving to the Dominican Republic around 2013.Calling her a “maternal mama bear,” Machina said Anton always wanted to help children and believed that both education and human connection could benefit any community.“If people want to do something that would be meaningful, stand up for the underdog and be kind to people who look different from you,” Machina said. “She was all about kindness and sweetness.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

Thursday Night Football

first_imgIf you are not a football fan, the Thursday night games have a way of ruining your normal TV watching.  This is the least of the problems created by these games.  An article in Sports Illustrated magnified the real problem of this.Because of the nature of pro football and the violent hits that players take, the games on Thursday night ramp up the number of injuries.  When you play a Sunday game (especially Sunday night), the body does not have time to recover.  With the added pressure of wanting to win your division, most players want to take the field and go back into action before their body is ready.   We know how many of these players are now living with the results of those lasting injuries.  Some cannot even walk.So, why do we have Thursday night games?  It is all due to the greed of the owners.  Being on television means big bucks.  None of the owners are in the game to lose money.  You can bet that not only will Thursday night games continue, but some owner will get the bright idea to play on Tuesday!last_img read more


Victor Moses coach threatens to leave Inter Milan

first_img Loading… Andrea Belotti was gifted the opener after Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanovic fumbled a corner at the Torino star’s feet at San Siro – heaping further misery on Conte and his stuttering side. But Inter – without Romelu Lukaku – rallied in the second half thanks to goals from Ashley Young, Diego Godin and Lautaro Martinez, who ended his five-game scoreless drought. Conte added: “I honestly think we started the game very well. Then there was this corner kick. It was a period where there was an incident and we conceded a goal. “I find it sensational that Samir messed up: he hardly makes mistakes. Overall, I think it was a game we dominated. read also:Conte: ‘Inter on the right track’ “The goal could’ve made us nervous and caused us problems, but we did well to score our goals. “We’re much less predictable than we were before as now we attack with more men. The result must crown the effort we put in and when it doesn’t, it disappoints me. “We’ve been punished excessively by certain incidents, but we’re on the right track: playing attacking football and overloading our opponents’ box.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Inter head coach, Antonio Conte, said he will not “hesitate” to leave if the club are unhappy, though the Italian remains committed to the Nerazzurri project amid question marks over his future. Conte joined Inter at the start of the season but there have been reports the former Chelsea and Juventus boss could leave at the end of the 2019-20 campaign. Doubts have emerged amid Inter’s struggles and Conte’s frustrations, with the team failing to fire since the Serie A returned last month after the season was halted in March due to the coronavirus pandemic. Inter leapfrogged Lazio into the second position in the table, eight points behind leaders Juve with six games remaining, following Monday’s rallying 3-1 win at home to Torino, and Conte was asked about his future. “I was called to Inter for a three-year project, to bring them back where they deserve to be,” Conte told Sky Sport Italia. “Inevitably, that takes time. I came here with so much enthusiasm. I have faith. “I started a three-year project and [my contract] lasts three years. After that, if they want to extend my contract… I’m happy, I know there’s a long way to go, but I don’t want to overstay my welcome. “If everyone’s happy with the job I’m doing, and I think that’s the case right now, from what I’ve been told, then I don’t see why we shouldn’t go on. “If they’re not happy with the job I’m doing then I won’t hesitate to step aside.” Inter have seen their Scudetto bid derailed following a home defeat to Bologna and a draw with Hellas Verona, and they fell behind in the 17th minute on Monday.center_img Promoted ContentPortuguese Street Artist Creates Hyper-Realistic 3D GraffitiA Hurricane Can Be As Powerful As 10 Atomic BombsThe World’s 7 Most Spectacular Railway StationsReal World Archaeological Finds That Would Stump Indiana JonesWhich Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?Who Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?Top 10 Most Romantic Nations In The World10 Risky Jobs Some Women DoBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For Them7 Of The Wealthiest Universities In The World7 Mind-Boggling Facts About Black HolesBest Car Manufacturers In The Worldlast_img read more
