first_imgCHENANGO (WBNG) — Free milk was up for grabs at Chenango Forks Elementary School Tuesday night.Over 8,000 half gallon jugs of milk all donated by the Dairy Farmers of America.As many as 300 cars came through.And those who came didn’t even need to live in the district to get the free milk.”People are actually making two trips, they’re giving out to their friends, their neighbors, their relatives, it’s awesome,” says Chenango Forks Central School Superintendent Lloyd Peck. “We’ve seen people come through the line 2 or 3 times and we just see them giving it out to people they know.”Earlier this month, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced the launch of the Nourish New York initiative to buy food and other products from upstate farms and get it sent to food banks across the state. All this as farmers have had to dump their milk because of problems they face during the pandemic.last_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on April 12, 2019 at 6:05 pm Contact Anthony: [email protected] Alexa Romero walked off the field minutes after delivering one of her most dominant performances of the season. After asking how many strikeouts she had — 11, her second-most this season — she put her hands over her face.“Because I’m not that pitcher,” Romero said of her surprise.But on Friday, Romero was that pitcher.The combination of the wind and the spin kept her pitches moving and baffled the Duke hitters for the entire afternoon. Romero threw six shutout innings, fanning 11 Blue Devils, the third consecutive start in which she has struck out at least 10. While the Syracuse bats failed to register a hit until the fifth inning, Romero’s dominance propelled the Orange (18-20, 7-6 Atlantic Coast) over Duke (21-23, 8-8), 4-0, for their ninth win in 11 games.“I just really kept spinning the ball. I knew if I spun my ball as hard as I can, the ball was going to go somewhere,” Romero said. “It was either going to be really good or really bad, and fortunately it was really good. My stuff was really moving today.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWith winds gusting upward of 30 miles per hour, it took Romero a few batters to gather herself and deliver. Of Romero’s first eight pitches on Friday afternoon, zero were strikes.The sixth pitch, which Romero thought was right down the middle, was called a ball.“You’ve got to be kidding me,” she muttered.The next three batters all popped out, barely contacting Romero’s rise ball. She needed just five pitches to get out of the jam.Romero said she noticed on film that the Duke hitters like to crowd the plate. This meant she could work inside early in the count, running rise balls in on hitters, especially righties. Then, she could finish off hitters outside. The first inning, two of the three hitters that popped out weakly were jammed.Pitching into a strong wind the entire afternoon, Romero and pitching coach Miranda Kramer made adjustments during her pregame bullpen session. She focused on using more strength and power in her legs to push-off more and deliver the ball.After the first, she began a run of strikeouts. Romero only frequents two pitches, the rise and the curve, and both stifled Duke on Friday. Once she got into a groove, she moved pitches inside-and-out, up-and-down with ease. The second inning, she needed just 13 pitches to strikeout the side.In the third, after an opening strikeout, Romero allowed a walk and the only hit of the day with just one out. On one of her few mistake pitches, Romero threw a rise ball right down the middle to Deja Davis while leading 0-2 in the count. Davis singled to center, one of only four times the Blue Devils hit the ball out of the infield. While SU couldn’t break through and find open gaps and hits, Duke couldn’t muster solid contact most of the game.“Alexa doing that out there is the most comfortable thing to play behind,” senior Alicia Hansen said. “If it wasn’t for her the score could have been a lot different.”Even after the single, Romero needed just six pitches to down the next two hitters, as she fooled Rachel Abboud with a pitch right down the middle and Kristina Foreman skied out on a rise ball.When Duke again had two runners on from a walk and hit by pitch in the fifth inning, Romero struck out Davis and Abboud on seven pitches, not throwing a ball. Time after time, she pounded each edge of the strike zone. After each strikeout, Romero turned to the bench and dabbed with her left arm.The two strikeouts to end the fifth were the last real chance Duke had of scoring. In both the sixth and seventh innings, Romero now had a lead.“Getting those four runs felt really good. I knew I didn’t have to press really hard and really really hit the zone,” Romero said. “Having that little comfort helped a lot.”The SU ace didn’t give the Blue Devils any hope of a rally. The sixth and seventh innings required just 11 minutes of real time and 22 pitches. Six batters up, six batters down. Romero struck out the final two hitters with neither coming close to contact on their final swings. Commentslast_img read more

The 24-year-old Frenchman finished 0.415 seconds ahead of McLaren driver Carlos Sainz and 3.358 ahead of Racing Point’s Lance Stroll on a surreal-looking podium. All three drivers had never won a race and each had only one top-three finish to their name.Hamilton appeared on course for a comfortable victory from pole position but he was given the stop-go penalty for entering the pit lane when closed.The Mercedes driver finished seventh, 17.245 behind Gasly.Ferrari’s abysmal weekend continued as Sebastian Vettel had a brake failure on Lap 7 and he limped into the pits with his right-rear brake disc in flames. It was the four-time champion’s first DNF at Monza in his 14th start.His teammate Charles Leclerc had made it into fourth but lost the rear of the car under acceleration through Parabolica on Lap 25 and crashed into the barriers, causing the race to be red flagged.By that time Hamilton’s penalty had been announced. Hamilton had pitted immediately after the safety car had been deployed after Kevin Magnussen broke down but was unaware the pit lane was closed as the marshals recovered Magnussen’s Haas.Antonio Giovinazzi received the same sanction.(Image Credit: AP) last_img read more

first_imgIt was a proud moment for Gartan National School today as they raised their fifth green flag in conjunction with an active flag. Deputy Pat the Cope Gallagher hoisted the two flags at the school on Friday morning.The Donegal TD said both initiatives play an essential part in creating awareness about protecting the environment and the importance of physical education and fitness towards our overall wellbeing.Pat the Cope said: “The green flag schools initiative creates awareness in our primary and secondary schools about the single biggest challenge facing each and every one of us; is how we manage the environment, how we deal with waste and plastics that we create and how we minimalize damage we do to our shared environment with that waste. “Unlike in the past, we now have record population levels on our planet, record levels of waste and no effective ways of dealing with the ever-growing mountains of waste.“We see this daily with the amounts of waste and plastics in our seas, oceans, countryside, it is alarming,” stated Pat the Cope.“Unfortunately, it is all due to human recklessness and poor understanding of how to manage our countryside and environment.“The green flag initiative is an important first step in instilling how to manage waste and to better care for our environment. Speaking after launching Gartan NS their active flag award, Pat the Cope said: “For the overall wellbeing of the student and for the physical and mental health of the individual, it is essential that we have the correct amount of physical education and exercise.“That is the reason why initiatives such as the active school flag are critical programmes nowadays to have incorporated in our schools.“I wish to commend and congratulate Gartan National School for undertaking both initiatives and for promoting these programmes within their school.“I fully appreciate that these measures take quite an amount of time, both school staff and management have been great advocates for these two initiatives,” concluded Pat the Cope.Gartan National School receives fifth green flag was last modified: June 7th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare 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

first_imgA festival and events organiser punched a taxi-driver in the face and then wrestled a female Garda who tried to arrest him in a row over the fare.Adam Laverty, aged, 27, appeared before Letterkenny District Court following the incident on December 20th, 2018. Laverty and a friend had hailed the taxi in Letterkenny and asked to go to Ballybofey and was told by the taxi-driver that the fare would be €30 which they paid.However, half-way to Balybofey the pair decided they wanted to go to Clady in Co Tyrone but the driver refused and said he was letting the men out.The men claimed they were being left in the middle of nowhere, hadn’t got value for their €30 and a row started.Solicitor for Laverty, of Drumboe Avenue, Stranorlar, Mr Frank Dorrian, said the men felt aggrieved and had been drinking.He also revealed how one of the men said “We could kill you here right now.”The taxi-driver then called Gardai to the scene and the matter became more enflamed.Laverty became aggressive and wrestled a female Garda against the patrol car before he had to be pepper-sprayed to be brought under control.Mr Dorrian said his client had no previous convictions and said he was a successful events organiser.Judge Paul Kelly said he took a very poor view of somebody who attacked somebody else while they were going about their duty.He ordered Laverty to pay €200 compensation to the taxi-driver and also make a further donation of €200 to the Garda Benevolent Fund.Festival organiser to pay compo after punching taxi-driver in face was last modified: July 23rd, 2019 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:Adam Laffertyfestival organiserGardaipunchStranorlartaxi-driverlast_img read more

first_imgIn the first of what is hoped will be a series of spectacular space missions in 2004, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory flew the Stardust spacecraft today on a wild ride right into the dusty coma of comet Wild-2 (pronounced Vilt-2).  Though the dust storm would have killed an astronaut at that range, the craft emerged on the other side unscathed, with possibly millions of dust particles embedded in its aerogel collector.  The first sample return mission since Apollo 17 in 1972, Stardust will parachute its capsule loaded with the precious cargo into the Utah desert in January, 2006.  During the encounter today, the mass spectrometer also worked well, and so did the camera.  About six dozen images were snapped of the comet’s nucleus from about 250 km (150 mi).    Elated by their picture-perfect enounter, the spacecraft team proudly displayed two detailed images of the nucleus at the press conference this afternoon, just 3 hours from the time they were taken.  They expect additional images still being processed may be even better.  The photos reveal a rough surface mottled by pits, with about five jets visible.  The pits, rather than being impact craters, may be sinkholes from collapse of underlying volatiles.  If this comet is like Halley and Borrelly visited earlier by Giotto and Deep Space 1, respectively, the surface is probably as black as asphalt, but data will have to be analyzed to nail down the actual reflectivity.  Principal investigator Donald Brownlee (Univ. of Washington) said that the jetting of volatiles and dust only comes from a few percent of the surface.    Project Manager Tom Duxbury explained that the spacecraft was named Stardust because comet dust is assumed to be pristine material from our star, the Sun, left over from its formation (although this assumption has been questioned recently: see 08/12/2003 entry).  Brownlee, co-author of Rare Earth (12/19/2000), a book that asserts intelligent life is rare in the universe, stressed that photographs and actual physical samples that can be examined in the lab are worth much more than mere ideas.  These first images were surprising, and more surprises are anticipated once the samples are returned to Earth.  Nevertheless, he reiterated the evolutionary theme Carl Sagan made famous, that humans, like comets, are also made of star dust.    Upcoming comet rendezvous missions include the European Space Agency Rosetta, launching (after previous delays) in February (01/13/2003), and NASA’s Deep Impact, launching in December.As expressed in similar headlines in the past, we congratulate those who succeed in risky missions to gather data, and we can hardly wait to see what the particles in the collector show, but the public should be “taught the controversy” when there is one.  If not all scientists agree that comets are made of pristine material, that should be mentioned, rather than making matter-of-fact statements to the press that comet material has been unprocessed for 4.6 billion years.    The phrase “we are made of starstuff” is a misleading half-truth.  Yes, our bodies have carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and other elements found in stars, but we know what Sagan and Brownlee mean.  They want us to believe that stardust aggregated into the Earth, and from the atoms on Earth, life arose and evolved upward into human beings by unguided, purposeless, undirected natural processes.  Such myths should be distinguished from science.  They would not get smiling nods at press conferences if scientists were expected to use disclaimers when preaching naturalistic philosophy: “According to my atheistic, naturalistic opinion, and according to the teachings of my tradition’s creation myth, we are all made of stardust.  Won’t you please join me in singing my favorite hymn, Godless Philosophy.” (Visited 9 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
