KIJHL gets it right after Leafs appeal suspensions

first_imgThe Kootenay International Junior Hockey League has never been big on promoting itself.However, league governors should be pleased to give themselves a pat on the back after correcting original suspensions following a January 29th game at the NDCC Arena between Nelson and Castlegar.Following the penalty-filled contest, as many as three Leafs had suspensions posted on the KIJHL website.However, after the Leafs appealed the rulings, the KIJHL, in consultation with BC Hockey Referee in chief Sean Rapheal, reversed the original decisions thanks to the beauty of having all games video taped by the home club.“The appeal process (was handled by) Referee in Chief, Sean Rapheal,” Neil Murdoch Vice-president Larry Martel said in an email.“He reviewed video from the game and overturned two of the calls.”Martel said the call to Leafs Levi Hulston and Castlegar’s Tyler Barrett were deemed correct.However, video revealed the calls to Matthew Sokol of Nelson as the instigator in a fight with Daniel Petten to be incorrect.“Sokol should have had a kneeing call that was missed but video shows Petten was the instigator not Sokol,” Martel explained.Martel also said in the fight between Rayce Miller of Nelson and Barrett, the scoresheet was changed to add instigator to Barrett.“The changes in the instigators therefore change the suspension as per the Junior B supplement,” Martel said. “Two of the three fighting majors and instigator calls were overturned by the referee in Chief Sean Rapheal, (with) BC Hockey,” Martel added.All three Leafs players were in the lineup for Friday’s game against Castlegar, a contest won 5-3 by Nelson.One step forward, two back for LeafsThe on-again, off-again, Nelson Leafs, well, took a step back after dropping a 4-3 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League decision to the Spokane Braves Saturday in the Lilac City.The setback comes after the team played one of its best games of the season Friday against rival Castlegar Rebels at the NDCC Arena.Nelson captain Rayce Miller scored twice and added an assist to lead the Leafs past the Rebels 5-3.Kurtis Redding rained on the Leafs parade Saturday, scoring two goals in the third period to snap a 2-2 tie.Miller scored a power play marker late in the frame but Nelson was unable to find the equalizer.Kyle Donaldson and Paxton Malone also scored for the Braves.Blair Andrews and Levi Hulston replied for Nelson.Spokane was the better team in the third period, firing 20 shots at Friday Hulston, Brendan Smith and Miller scored in the first period to give the Leafs a commanding 3-1 lead.Ed Lindsey cut the margin to 3-2 early in the second period but Miller and Andrews restored the lead.Lindsey and Tayden Woods also scored for Castlegar.Nelson, 18-25-0-0-2, returns to action Tuesday with a road date in Fruitvale against the Nitehawks.The game is the first of four games in six days for the Leafs as the Green and White plays out the KIJHL 2015-16 regular season.last_img read more

TRIPLE CROWN CHAMP VICTOR ESPINOZA TO ACCEPT 2016 SANTA ANITA GEORGE WOOLF MEMORIAL JOCKEY AWARD ON SUNDAY; MEXICO CITY NATIVE SELECTED BY A VOTE OF JOCKEYS NATIONWIDE

first_imgWOOLF AWARD TROPHY TO BE PRESENTED AFTER THE 6TH RACE SUNDAY AT SANTA ANITA ARCADIA, Calif. (March 10, 2016)–As America’s first Triple Crown Champion jockey in 37 years, Victor Espinoza helped Thoroughbred racing project a positive image far beyond the confines of the Thoroughbred industry throughout 2015, thus elevating the sport’s exposure and acceptance to a level perhaps not seen since the 1970s. Accordingly, Espinoza, a 43-year-old native of Mexico City, has been selected by a vote of jockeys nationwide as the winner of Santa Anita’s highly coveted 2016 George Woolf Memorial Jockey Award and he will accept the award in a Winner’s Circle ceremony following Sunday’s sixth race.“It’s quite an honor for any rider to be selected by his peers as the winner of such a prestigious award,” said Terry Meyocks, National Manager of the Jockeys’ Guild. “And I would like to congratulate Victor on this great achievement.”In addition to numerous national television appearances through the 2015 Triple Crown and last fall’s Breeders’ Cup World Championships, Espinoza also remained tireless in his efforts on behalf of cancer-stricken youth, donating 10 percent of his winnings to support pediatric cancer research at City of Hope, in nearby Duarte.With the Bob Baffert-trained American Pharoah providing the horsepower, Espinoza gleefully proclaimed himself “The luckiest Mexican on earth,” on national television following their win in the Belmont Stakes June 6.In addition to winning the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont, Espinoza and Santa Anita-based American Pharoah won last year’s Grade II Rebel Stakes, Grade I Arkansas Derby, Grade I Haskell Invitational and, in a performance for the ages, the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic by 6 ½ lengths on Oct. 31–all the while elevating the profile of jockeys nationwide and generating tremendous ratings on a consistent basis.Born on a dairy farm near Mexico City, Espinoza is the 11th of 12 children. A three-time ESPY Award winner, Espinoza has three career Kentucky Derby wins, three Preakness victories, three Breeders’ Cup wins and he’s taken 11 Southern California riding titles.First presented by Santa Anita in 1950, Espinoza is the 67th winner of the Woolf Award, which seeks to honor riders whose careers and personal character earn esteem for the individual and Thoroughbred racing. The remaining four finalists for this year’s award, which can only be won once during a rider’s career, were Joe Bravo, Javier Castellano, Gerard Melancon and Joe Steiner.last_img read more

One small bag makes a big difference

first_imgJordan van der Walt’s campaign is now two years old and has helped to feed thousands of children. Prof Jonathan Jansen and Jordan, one of his mother’s favourite photos(Images: Lynn van der Walt) MEDIA CONTACTS • Lynn van der Walt   Jordan’s mother   +27 82 608 0199 RELATED ARTICLES • Fighting hunger on wheels • Help street kids the responsible way • Feeding bodies and brains • SA’s women farmers root out hungerLucille DavieHe’s only 12 years old and has already picked up several awards for his philanthropy. He’s Jordan van der Walt and his initiative has fed a million hungry tummies in two years.Jordan, a pupil at St John’s Preparatory College in Houghton, Johannesburg, started a school feeding campaign called Just One Bag back in March 2011, which has seen 100 tons of South African food staple mealie meal delivered to schools all over the country.It started after calls for the annual Easter egg collection to be made at the school – the donations would be delivered to underprivileged schools. But Jordan had a better idea – based on a documentary he’d seen stating that three-million children in South Africa go to school hungry each day, he felt that Easter eggs wouldn’t make a difference to those children and suggested to his principal, Patrick Lees, that instead of Easter eggs, perhaps each boy could bring a bag of mealie meal instead.Lees didn’t hesitate. Posters went up around the school, reminders were written in diaries, and bulk text messages were sent out. In just a few weeks five tons of meal were collected.Lees then challenged other schools in Johannesburg to join the campaign. “The response was overwhelming,” he said on Cape Talk radio.By the end of 2011 50 schools had committed to Just One Bag, 30 of them in Johannesburg, involving 30 000 children.It wasn’t long before the big food chains, like Spar and Pick n Pay, got involved, delivering truckloads of meal to the school. Soon truck companies came to the party and distributed the food to schools.Young philanthropist“Jordan has the biggest heart and he really cares for everyone. I am so proud of him and we are very honoured to have Jordan at St John’s,” said Lees.In 2012 the youngster received the Inyathelo Award for Children in Philanthropy, given by the South African Institute for Advancement, a non-profit trust promoting philanthropy. He said when accepting the award: “My project came about because of a feeling that I had in my heart, and when it comes to giving or helping, I believe that feeling is important – it has to come from within. We can think and devise all sorts of nice things to do for people, but if they don’t come from the heart, I feel that they are meaningless.”Jordan’s mother Lynn says he just wanted to show that children can make a difference. “He doesn’t understand the big fuss when you are helping children or people with food. How can we award people for giving?”She says Jordan has always been a generous child, giving to those less fortunate at every opportunity. “He is just a very loving, giving person. We are proud of him.”Television and radio appearances followed, and in December 2012 Jordan was named LeadSA’s Hero of the Month. LeadSA is a Primedia initiative, launched in August 2010, that encourages South Africans to “make a difference, do the right thing, stand up.”“It’s taught me that giving is supposed to be part of life and that we should all give and that no matter how big or small your idea is, always go and talk to an adult or your headmaster and tell them about your idea,” Jordan told Talk Radio 702’s John Robbie in an interview, just after receiving his Lead SA award.In December 2012 he was invited to talk to the University of Free State‘s medical graduates by its distinguished vice rector Prof Jonathan Jansen.He nervously stood in front of 3 000 students and said: “And so my challenge to you wonderful and talented graduates is to go out into South Africa and serve. Do it from the heart because you have a feeling inside you that makes you want to serve. Don’t do it for me, don’t do it for anyone else, do it for yourself because your heart tells you to.”He told them not to think that because they were now doctors, their role was to “become rich, drive fancy cars and live in big houses”. Instead they should be thinking differently about being a doctor. “The only way that you are going to enjoy it and live a fulfilling life is if you want to take on the profession for the right reasons and you do it with your heart.”Children helping childrenIn April 2012 Jordan was invited to speak to three schools in Bloemfontein, Free State. He told the pupils: “We can change the world for the better, even if it’s just the little girl or boy who you see every day on your way to school playing in the dust and being forced to beg for money or something to eat, make them an extra sandwich, donate your old clothes and toys and think for just one minute how you would feel if you had to go without many of the luxuries we all too often take for granted.“Children helping children, let’s show South Africans what we can do, let’s take a stand and make a difference.”Jordan says modestly when asked about the response to his drive: “I wasn’t expecting so many people to help with the project. Thank you for helping me.”Asked about being famous, he says: “I don’t feel it should be about me and being famous. All I want to do is to help children.”On the future of the campaign, Jordan says he wants “more children to help children”.His main ambition is to become a lawyer, but also to play sport.last_img read more

Off the Shelf: Conversations with Authors of Children’s Books

first_imgUsed with permission, J. MarlerThe Family Development Early Intervention team is always on the look-out for quality children’s books that help address some of the unique needs of military children.The following is an interview with Jerilyn Marler, the author of Lily Hates Goodbyes.  Jerilyn can be reached through her website.  This interview has been edited for length and clarity.What, if any, experiences do you and/or your book’s illustrator have with the military?I have been a military child, wife, and mother. My father was a Navy physician when I was a child. My first husband was in the Army during the first few years of our marriage and my current husband was in the Navy before we met. Also, my son was in the Navy for 12 years. After my father left the military, we moved to India where my parents worked at a hospital for 8 years. My sisters and I attended boarding school and would go for months—sometimes 8 or 9 months—without seeing our parents. I experienced separations of one sort or another throughout much of my childhood.My illustrator, Nathan Stoltenberg, has had no military experience but he has incredible artistic talent. Prior to us collaborating, he had never illustrated a children’s book and I had never published a children’s book.  We both, however, wanted to do so. We got along famously. Hanging on the wall over my computer is his original concept drawing of “Book Lily,” as I call her. I asked him to change the color of her hair and eyes, otherwise it was perfect.What made you decide to write this book? Was there some incident or experience that inspired you?I wrote Lily Hates Goodbyes for Lily, my 4-year-old granddaughter who was distraught by her daddy’s deployment aboard the USS MOMSEN. She was acting out and clearly hurting, yet she could not talk about her feelings or the experience of her daddy being gone. I wrote the text in Word with personal photos as illustrations. It was intended just for Lily. She really related to “Book Lily.” We talked about what “Book Lily” was feeling, what she did to feel better, and how it was okay to feel all of those things, even though they are sometimes scary. As I read pages from the book, my Lily would say, “Me too!” and not feel so alone. One night she asked me to sing the book to her. She drew pictures of her feelings. Her picture of sadness was particularly poignant. “Book Lily” helped my Lily trust that her daddy would come home and that they would have a happy hello. She even practiced how she would greet him by jumping from the bed into my arms. The book helped Lily so much that I decided to publish it for all young children who suffer through long separations from a loved one.Since my son was in the Navy, “Book Dad” wears a Navy uniform in the first version (the Navy version) of the book. I heard from parents who wanted a version of “Book Dad” in their branch’s uniform. It was not feasible to cover each branch of the military, so the illustrator created an All Military version with “Book Dad” wearing a generic battle dress uniform with no specific reference to any branch. That has been very successful.Following the publication of Lily Hates Goodbyes, parents asked for more suggestions of how to help, so I wrote Helping Your Young Child Cope with a Parent’s Deployment. I included many of the ways that Lily’s mom and I helped her feel connected to her daddy even though he was about a billion miles away. For example, Lily sometimes sat on my lap while I was at my computer writing an email to my son. She banged away on the keys “writing” to daddy. Then below what she wrote, I typed the translation as she dictated to me what she had written. Her daddy loved those emails.What message(s) do you hope that children and families receive as a result of reading your book?As a result of reading my book I hope children and families discover that whatever they feel is okay to feel, and that talking about feelings and how one copes with those feelings all matter. Children need a steadfast and loving adult to help them through the turbulence.  Children also need to trust that there will be a happy hello at the end of the separation.Have you received any feedback from military families after they read your book, and if so, what have they said?I love hearing from readers. Sometimes I receive personal messages through my website and sometimes they arrive as a result of reviews on Amazon. Lily Hates Goodbyes has been embraced by children all around the world because separations are not limited to the US military. Parents share how their children love “Book Lily” and how the book has helped them.  One mother shared, “The difference you are making in our lives and others in the same situation is just not measurable. I truly believe that your book is going to help us survive this deployment.” Family Readiness Groups have purchased the book in bulk for their personnel. I do not do any advertising; sales are entirely by word of mouth. With every purchase I rejoice that another child will find a friend in “Book Lily.”Do you have plans to write another book? If so, what is the focus of that book and when might we expect to see it?My 30+ years of writing, editing, and publishing are in nonfiction and technical material. I did not even realize that I had written a children’s book until I assembled the first version in a three-ring binder to read to my granddaughter Lily. I remember thinking, “Huh! Look at that! I wrote a children’s book!” The two versions of Lily Hates Goodbyes and the parent handbook were born out my passionate desire to help my granddaughter. I have kicked around the idea of other children’s books, but nothing has taken root…yet.Are there any other books that might be relevant for young military children that you would suggest?Oh gosh, yes. Night Catch by Brenda Ehrmantraut is sweet. Sandra Miller Linhart wrote Daddy’s Boots and Momma’s Boots. Kudos to her for covering both genders! I recommend searching for “military children books” on Amazon. The books I mentioned, and Lily Hates Goodbyes, will be on the list.This post was edited by Robyn DiPietro-Wells & Michaelene Ostrosky, PhD, members of the MFLN FD Early Intervention team, which aims to support the development of professionals working with military families.

Kohli was good with his shot selection: Gambhir

first_imgLeading the side for the first time, India captain Gautam Gambhir on Sunday lavished praise on centurion Virat Kohli for scripting a 40-run win over New Zealand in the first ODI, which also helped the hosts take a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.”Virat batted exceptionally well today. After losing the toss, our plan was that someone needs to go and get a hundred and he did exactly the same. He was good with his shot selection. Overall, I am satisfied with the performance of the team,” said Gambhir, who also scored a quickfire 38 at the top to give the team a sound start.”Both batsmen and bowlers chipped in with useful contributions. R Ashwin bowled brilliantly, pacers Nehra and Sreesanth were equally good. Virat, Yuvraj and other batsmen were also good. We hope to continue the momentum in the fixtures ahead,” said the dashing opener.Asked about captaining the side in the absence of regular captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who has been rested for the series ahead of the tough tour of South Africa starting next month, Gambhir said, “Leading the side was a great feeling and I am happy to start with a win.”Man of the Match Kohli, fresh from his back-to-back centuries in Ranji Trophy, struck a neat and chanceless 105, an innings which was laced with 10 boundaries. This was his second consecutive and fourth overall one-day ton.The Delhi-lad said he has brought some changes to his aggressive style of batting and is now concentrating more on the singles and twos.advertisement”It feels good to get a century. I just want to make the most of my outing. After the Sri Lanka series bad patch, I got enough backing from the team and coach to deliver the goods and, these days, I am more into analysing my game.”I am concentrating on holding one end and let others do their bit. I am converting more singles and doubles these days. It’s good to score runs and help your team post a good total on the board,” he said.Meanwhile, New Zealand captain Ross Taylor said losing three-four wickets in the middle stage of the innings cost them the game.”Everything did not go right for us today. In the middle stage, we lost three-four wickets that made a lot of difference. It’s a disappointing result for us and we hope to pick up from here,” Taylor said.”We came pretty close in the end but overall efforts seemed to be little short. Virat batted well and took the game away from us. We hope to play better in the series ahead,” he added.With inputs from PTIlast_img read more

Report: Malaga 0 Atletico Madrid 1

first_imgMalaga 0 Atletico Madrid 1: Griezmann narrows gap at top to six Nicholas McGee Last updated 1 year ago 01:08 2/11/18 Griezmann-Cropped Twitter (@Atleti) After a tumultuous end to their win over Valencia, Antoine Griezmann was back celebrating as Atletico Madrid beat Malaga 1-0. Antoine Griezmann should be firmly back in the good graces of Atletico Madrid fans after he fired them to within six points of LaLiga leaders Barcelona with a 1-0 win over bottom club Malaga.Griezmann had been jeered by Atletico fans for slowing play down instead of looking for another goal towards the end of their 1-0 win over Valencia last time out.He reacted angrily to those jeers, but both he and the Atletico supporters had reason to celebrate less than a minute into Saturday’s contest at La Rosaleda.
