first_img“Women of Wonder” from left, Stormy Freese, of Cape May Court House, Shirley “Becki” Wilson, of Seaville, and Ocean City Library Director Karen Mahar hold their “shining star” awards. By MADDY VITALE Ocean City Free Public Library Director Karen Mahar was honored Thursday as one of three 2019 “Women of Wonder” during a luncheon at the Flanders Hotel.The award is from the Atlantic Cape Community College Foundation and Cape May County Women’s Commission.The other recipients are Stormy Freese, of Cape May Court House, and Shirley “Becki” Wilson, of Seaville.More than 200 attendees joined the honorees for the event.The event was opened with remarks by ACCC President Dr. Barbara Gaba, who told the audience that the women selected are fine examples representing the community and that the goal of providing scholarships to students so that they could receive a college education is one of the motivations of the award.On behalf of the program, the ACCC Foundation presented a $10,700 check to go toward scholarships.For Mahar, who has a long list of accolades for helping make the library such a success among residents and visitors to the resort, the honor was humbling.“I am so happy and honored to be here today. I congratulate Stormy and Shirley and I stand here with great company,” Mahar said, her voice choking with emotion. “Community connections are happening all the time in the library.”Karen Mahar, of Ocean City, tells the audience that she is in great company with the other two honorees.Under Mahar’s leadership, the library staff works closely with the community. The library partners with the City of Ocean City, the Ocean City Regional Chamber of Commerce, the police department, the Ocean City School District and local businesses.Throughout her career as library director, Mahar is responsible for all library programs and departments, helps establish and recommend policies to the Library Board of Trustees and prepares and plans the library budget.In addition, she recruits, hires, trains, supervises and evaluates a library staff of over 45 employees.Mahar offered some words of wisdom that she takes with her every day.“I try to maintain a positive attitude,” she said. “You have a choice every day of what your attitude will be. You cannot change the actions of others. You cannot change the inevitable. The only thing you can change is your attitude. Thank you for everything you have done to make our library a success.”She also thanked her family for being her “constant source of strength and motivation.”Prior to Mahar accepting her award, Cape May County Women’s Commission member Jacqueline Simonsen said a few words about her friend.“She is well-known and well-loved in the community. As director of the library, she fosters relationships and key partnerships,” Simonsen said. “Police are here because she has thought to herself, ‘I need to make sure kids are safe coming to the library,’ and she started a relationship with them. Libraries are alive, in part, because of people like Karen Mahar. … She is so deserving of this award.”For Shirley Wilson, whose career in social work spans many years, and her list of volunteerism is just as long, she told the crowd she is so honored and that she loves helping people.She has been a commissioner on the Delaware River and Bay Authority Commission since her appointment in 2012.She has also been active in a host of organizations and committees throughout her career.ACCC and Cape May County Women’s Commission members, along with Cape May County Freeholder Will Morey, pose alongside the scholarship fund check.Wilson serves as a member of the Atlantic/Cape May Supreme Court Committee on Diversity, Inclusion, and Community Engagement, the Mid-Atlantic Center for Arts and Humanities, Center for Community Arts Board of Directors and is the co-founder of REUNITE.The other honoree, Stormy Freese, is a microbiologist at the Cape May County Department of Mosquito Control.Freese began her career as a laboratory assistant at the county’s Mosquito Control Commission in May 2014 and became a full-time employee in January 2015.Since she began working at the commission full time, Freese has been involved with promoting STEM careers.She organized a Super Mosquito Scientist class for the Girl Scouts and has attended several career and STEM days at Dennis and Lower Township schools.She told the audience that she devotes time to telling young women it is OK to explore other career paths, as she did.“My family has been a huge support system,” said Freese, who had a baby just last week and insisted she would attend the ceremony. “I just hope to continue to do great things. It’s really an honor to be here with these two extraordinary women.”President of the Library Board of Trustees Jennifer Shirk, Karen Mahar, and Board of Trustees member Ron Denney share a light moment.last_img read more

first_img Read Full Story One hundred years ago, a young member of the Thai royal family gave up a promising military career to devote himself to the health and well-being of his people. As part of his new plan, Prince Mahidol Adulyadej of Songkla came to the U.S. to study public health at the Harvard-MIT School for Health Officers (as the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health was originally known).On Aug. 25, 2016 a symposium was held to honor the Prince’s contributions to public health and medicine in his country and to highlight the progress Thailand has made in public health and medicine over the past century, including improving drinking water, sanitation, and nutrition, and continuing more recently with adoption of universal health coverage in 2002. The event, held at the Francis A. Countway Library of Medicine, was co-sponsored by Harvard Chan School, Harvard Medical School (HMS) and the King of Thailand Birthplace Foundation (KTBF).Prince Mahidol earned a certificate in public health from Harvard in 1921 and later returned to Boston to study at HMS, where he earned his M.D. cum laude in 1928. Throughout his studies, he preferred to be known as “Mr. Songkla,” and kept his royal identity a secret from classmates.While at Harvard, the Prince negotiated an agreement with the Rockefeller Foundation to provide funding for education in medicine, nursing, and public health in Thailand. Upon his return home, he presided over substantial upgrades to science and medical facilities in Thailand’s universities and implemented national public health policies.last_img read more

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionMLK Day: We have a long way to goThe Jan. 21 edition of The Daily Gazette illustrated American racism well.Gazette first page: 1) A long article under the headline “Siena poll: Most say racism persists.” 2) A photo of a parade of largely segregated Union College students, celebrating MLK’s legacy. 3) A long article under the headline “Union students rally to MLK’s message,” continued on page 7 with large photo of Union College’s Dr. Gretchel Hathaway, minority dean of diversity and inclusion, lecturing on MLK’s legacy. First page Local Section: Three photos of fully segregated Americans acting “in the spirit of MLK.” Opinion page: Sympathetic letter suggesting NAACP change its name to eliminate the words “Colored People.”All reminders that earlier this month we celebrated the only national holiday we have that is based on a single person. (in itself racist?) If the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. were to return, I suppose he would be shocked to see what we have done to this nation in his name.From his famous speech: “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” What did we get: A nation ruled by “affirmative action,” judged by the color of the skin. That’s precisely what MLK wanted eliminated.This nation will never eliminate racism until we eliminate government racism and help each other on the basis of need, not government edict.Clyde MaughanSchenectadySidewalk plan has plenty of problemsWe are writing to express our concerns regarding the Schenectady Sidewalk Initiative Pilot Project that was rolled out on Ardsley Avenue, and is supposed to roll out in April on our street, DeCamp Avenue.Under this project, residents are expected to pay assessed fees to replace the sidewalks.On Ardsley, residents got “sticker shock” when their tax bills indicated that they were to pay nearly twice as much as they were told, now that the work is done.New bills are supposed to be generated to correct the error.When we were unable to obtain information from the city, The Daily Gazette provided information that allowed us to review expected fees for DeCamp residents; like Ardsley, the costs appear that they, too, will be close to twice what was projected by the city.Some streets have been upgraded in recent years, with no assessed fees, yet others have not. As of today, we still have nothing in writing on when the sidewalks will be repaired, what the paving schedule is or what the actual costs will be.It seems to us that this sidewalk project is not viable.Residents should not have to hound the city to get streets paved and get signed petitions to get sidewalks repaired under a special initiative, especially when downtown and many other streets exactly like DeCamp (Wright, Parkwood and Glenwood) are upgraded with no fees required from residents.This is Councilman John Polimeni’s initiative.

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Syracuse and Denver each threaten with explosive offenses. As they take turns trying to unlock each other’s defense Saturday night, the pace of the game threatens to take off.Each team can run and punish. Syracuse would love to play on the break. “It’s in our blood,” head coach John Desko said. Or the Orange can back up, slow down and go into gradual dissection mode. Denver can too.Both have picked apart zones this season.So while Saturday’s 5 p.m. final four showdown between Denver (14-4) and Syracuse (15-3) will inevitably ebb and flow with the speed of each team’s high-powered offenses, the Orange is comfortable playing at any pace. SU sees ways to expose the Pioneers in transition, like North Carolina did last weekend. But the ability to cut through Denver regardless of the nature of the game is part of the team’s identity heading into the season’s final weekend.“One of the things I like the most about our offense and our team this year is we can play at different speeds,” SU attack Kevin Rice said.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSo can Denver. It’s why the Pioneers score nearly 13 goals per game. Led by Canadian sharpshooter Wes Berg and Eric Law, Denver has failed to crack double digits in goals just once all season.“I suppose it could be a high-scoring game and we wouldn’t back down from that,” Desko said. “Although I see the offenses have been patient at times, both of them.”It’s why Syracuse will be especially tuned into the pulse of Saturday’s game.On Sunday, UNC tore into Denver in transition, pushing the Pioneers to the brink of elimination. The Orange has a keen eye on finishing the job the same way.“A lot of times they sub their guys off, maybe a little too many, so we definitely have to push in transition a lot,” SU midfielder Henry Schoonmaker said. “Like if you saw the UNC game, I think UNC had two poles score, d-middies score twice and I think four or five goals in transition. So I think that’s pretty key.”The Pioneers may rush to get its defensive midfielders off the field. And in doing so, may turn the ball over and leave themselves shorthanded at the other end. As a result, SU’s offensive midfielders are looking to their few defensive shifts as opportunities to score, rather than contain a man and sub off.Rice is most wary, though, of Denver’s faceoff specialist Chase Carraro. He won 17-of-26 faceoffs against the Tar Heels, making UNC’s fast-paced attack ultimately irrelevant. Carraro can almost singlehandedly grind SU’s offense to a halt and force the Orange to play a tighter, more meticulous game if possessions are few and far between.By Desko’s own admission, Denver’s an especially difficult team to prepare for.Regardless of what pace this national semifinal takes, though, SU believes it can win. The Orange and its coaching staff will break down the X’s and O’s of the Pioneers’ setup, project matchups and run from there – just like they do every week.At the same time, though, the Syracuse players know who they are as a team. They’re at the pinnacle of the game, and they’re ready to just play.“At this point of the year, you are who you are and I don’t think you’re going to change much, the style of who you are,” Schoonmaker said. “So you’re probably just going to play the lacrosse you’ve been playing.” Comments Published on May 22, 2013 at 6:57 pm Contact Jacob: [email protected] | @Jacob_Klinger_last_img read more

first_img How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Mike Trout, with bat and glove, helps Angels end losing streak Dylan Bundy scuffles as Angels lose to Giants Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Roberts reiterated that there is no hard cap on Urías’ innings this season, but that he will return to the bullpen at some point.The Angels (15-16-4) didn’t put a runner on base until the fifth inning. By then, the Dodgers (14-15-3) led 7-0.Angels left-hander Patrick Sandoval was a late comer to the starting assignment, when Jaime Barría was optioned to the minors earlier in the day. Sandoval, who finished last season at Double-A after the Angels acquired him in the Martin Maldonado trade, was fed to the wolves: The 22-year-old Mission Viejo High product was tasked with facing the Dodgers’ projected Opening Day lineup.Sandoval struck out Corey Seager and induced a double-play groundout from Justin Turner in the first inning. The second inning was much more eventful.Related Articles Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Andrelton Simmons accepts Angels’ plan to come back gradually from ankle injury Urías’ innings will apparently be much more limited in 2019 than his skill. The 22-year-old lefty threw only 22 innings last year between the minors and the majors. He was perhaps fortunate to reach the majors at all after undergoing surgery on the anterior capsule surgery of his left shoulder.Not only did Urías need only 14 months to recover, he allowed only two runs in 10-1/3 major league innings to end the 2018 season. His innings will be guarded in 2019, and he is not in the Dodgers’ season-opening rotation by choice. Injuries to Rich Hill and Clayton Kershaw left the Dodgers with few options.So it is that Urías will debut Sunday against the Arizona Diamondbacks. If Urías pitches as efficiently as he did Tuesday, Roberts will be faced with another tough choice: let the kid pitch or stick to the plan? The choice might be more difficult for the manager than the pitcher.“In a regular season game and he’s throwing the baseball well, being efficient, there’s always that urge to get another one, get another one,” Roberts said. “But we have other good arms in the ’pen. We have to be mindful of the long view with Julio. At times it’s going to be a little bit difficult because when he’s out there he makes us all look good.”“I respect the plan and you’ve just got to take all the positives,” Urías said through an interpreter. “I was happy the way the fastball was working and overall, just happy.” PreviousAngels starter Patrick Sandoval, center, stands, on the mound after giving up an RBI single to Los Angeles Dodgers’ Justin Turner during the second inning of a preseason baseball game Tuesday, March 26, 2019, in Los Angeles, Calif.

He threw only 42 pitches, struck out four batters, then threw some cool-down pitches when it was all over. The Dodgers trounced the Angels in the Freeway Series finale 9-2 before an announced crowd of 34,162.The game was more a test of the Dodgers’ discipline than either side’s major-league talent. Clippers, Mavericks brace for the unknown in Game 4 Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Slumping Shohei Ohtani sits as Andrelton Simmons returns to Angels lineup Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season The Dodgers sent 11 men to the plate. Seven scored – three on a Cody Bellinger home run, two on a Joc Pederson double, one on a single by Turner and another on a wild pitch. All of the runs were charged to Sandoval, who recorded just one out in the inning before giving the ball to Jeremy Rhoades.Hansel Robles, who struck out the only batter he faced (Russell Martin), was the only major league pitcher to appear in the game for the Angels.The Dodgers tacked on two more runs in the fifth inning against minor leaguer Adrian De Horta. Max Muncy doubled and scored on an A.J. Pollock single. Pollock scored on a double by Martin.The Angels scored an unearned run in the fifth inning against Dylan Floro, the result of a fielding error by Muncy at first base. Matt Thaiss led off the seventh inning with a double against Dodgers pitcher Dustin May and came around to score on an RBI groundout. Thaiss (3 for 3, two doubles) accounted for half of the Angels’ hits.Both teams have a day off Wednesday followed by Opening Day on Thursday.

Temile Development Company of Nigeria Limited (Temile) has inked a contract with South Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Mipo Dockyard (HMD) for one firm and one optional 23,000 cbm liquefied petroleum gas  (LPG) carrier. “Whilst Temile has extensive experience in numerous sections of the oil and gas industry in Nigeria with particular interest in the offshore shipping and logistics sector, our entrance into LPG shipping is a new and exciting venture for us. We feel in very safe hands to have ordered a LPG carrier at Hyundai Mipo Dockyard and believe this will increase the local content of Nigerian investors in the LPG space,” Temile’s Chief Executive Alfred Temile said.According to S.Y. Park, the Executive Vice President & Chief Marketing Officer of Hyundai Heavy Industries, the order from Temile was secured under a competitive tender process in close co-operation with Nigeria LNG.The firm eco-design ship will be delivered within the first quarter of 2020 and then placed on time charter to Nigeria LNG Limited.Temile, a 100 pct Nigerian owned and managed company, ventured into the marine/offshore support vessels sector five years ago. The company’s fleet comprises of 16 offshore vessels all built within the last 5 years.last_img read more
