KINGSTON Walking past Wyoming Seminary Nesbitt Memorial Stadium on Wednesday night, it would have been easy to think that Holy Redeemer was holding an intrasquad scrimmage.
That because the Wyoming Valley Conference boys and girls Senior Classic All Star games were held with the players donning red and gold jerseys, Redeemer school colors.
In a touching gesture, the teams wore the school colors in honor of Lauren Higgs, who played soccer for the Royals girls team this season and died during the season. The teams also wore Higgs initials and her No. 19 on the arm of each jersey.
my opinion, the soccer community is very close and it good to be tight knit whether you on opposing teams or the same team to have that soccer family,wholesale nfl jerseys boys or girls and we always need to be supporting other teams, said Coughlin boys coach Rob Havard, who coached the boys Red Team to a 1 1 win, 4 3 on penalty kicks, in the first game of the doubleheader.
the season it a battle, but realistically when all is said and done we all here for the betterment of the game and whatever we could do to help someone and honor their memory is great. the boys game was an unusually low score for the top seniors from the Wyoming Valley Conference, the girls game picked up the slack.
By the time the girls contest was seven minutes old, it had already matched the score from the boys game. The Pittston Area girls shined in the nightcap as Maddy Mimnaugh scored twice and Sam Mayers added one as the Gold Team topped the Red Team 7 4. Not a score that looked attainable after such a low scoring boys match prior.
guess there was all the best seniors in the league, Mayers said.
Fittingly, the first goal of the girls game was scored by one of Higgs Holy Redeemer teammates, Lydia Lawson, to put Red ahead 1 0. A few minutes later, Red keeper Gabby Tomasura, also from Holy Redeemer, made the first save of the game.
think it was really nice that they had a thing to remember her, Mayers said. A moment of silence was held prior to each game.
The Red Team took a 3 2 lead into halftime, and the match was tied 4 4 after Coughlin Emma Sukowaski scored her second of the match for Red, but a fast flurry of goals in the second half put the game away in favor of the Gold.
Hanover Area Alyssa Koneski and Dallas Ruby Mattson found the back of the net sandwiched around Mayers tally as the three were scored in a span of less than five minutes.
actually thought the other team was going to be better, so I guess they underestimated us, Mayers said.
In the opener, Valley West Mike Bazadona, who led the WVC in goals this season, gave the Gold Team the lead with 34:03 remaining.
Approximately 15 minutes later, Coughlin Henry Sanchez equalized. Sanchez and his Crusader teammate Juan Mendoza nailed the last two penalty kicks that sailed into the net to give the Red Team the victory.
CHEYENNE Last year, Abby Rich jumped into the fire for the Cheyenne East girls tennis team.
With a small, young set of players on the court, Rich elevated herself to the No. 1 singles position for the Lady Thunderbirds as a sophomore. She got a few wins over lesser competition but struggled at the state tournament, going 0 2.
In an effort to get better, Rich began playing more tennis at a high lever. She took part in the Wyoming Governor Cup, reaching the consolation finals in the women open division and winning the open mixed doubles consolation title with Cheyenne Central Logan Havens.
it was an adult tournament, I just figured it would be good match experience and just go out there and do my best, Rich said.cheap jerseys Posted in Cheyenne East, TennisTagged Cheyenne East, girls tennis, high school, Pine Bluffs, tennis, Wyoming
CHEYENNE It should come as no surprise to anyone who has seen her compete that Abby Urban spent most of the summer in the pool.
After finishing runner up in the 500 yard freestyle and the third in the 200 yard freestyle at the 2012 Class 4A girls state meet, the Cheyenne East junior used her time off from school to refine her swimming skills even further.
swam a lot, Urban said with a laugh. day we were in the water. her offseason training culminated with one of the biggest swim of her career the USA Swimming Zone Championship in Fresno, Calif.

CHEYENNE Amber Codr made a decision on how to spend a portion of her vacation early.
The Cheyenne South junior got word that the University of Wyoming would be hosting a diving camp this summer. Whether or not to attend was an easy choice.
year is my junior year so it’s really my year to make it shine if I want to go far with diving. And hearing that the college I want to go to had something promoting diving was really neat to hear about so I jumped all over it, Codr said.

Cheyenne Central senior offensive lineman Grayson Fleming
Cheyenne Central offensive lineman Grayson Fleming is expected to miss his senior season because of concussions, Indians coach Brick Cegelski said Friday.
The senior missed the final game of the Indians 2012 season after suffering a concussion during practice. He was concussed again at camp this summer.
Fleming was a first team All Class 4A selection. His return would have given Central four returning starters on the offensive line. As it stands now, the Indians return all stater Judd Stewart along with Grayson Sipe and Damon Macleary.
It was easy to find the Sheridan High football coaches during practice Tuesday afternoon. Not because they weren wearing helmets and jerseys but because they were all wearing the exact same wide brimmed fishing hat adorned with the team logo.
It not a new fashion trend, it a conscious decision by the coaches to reduce their own exposure to harmful UV rays while honoring a peer who is currently battling cancer.

Xanadu, the mega mall project in the Meadowlands that Gov. Chris Christie has called the ugliest building in New Jersey, will be getting a new name.
Jon Hanson, who headed a committee appointed by Christie to study the future of casinos, racetracks and Xanadu, told a gambling forum Thursday that the project will shed its Kubla Khan inspired name.
Hanson says he met with the latest developers, Triple Five, and told them the project does not mean anything to the average New Jerseyan.
in New Jersey knows what a Xanadu is, so you have to change the name, Hanson says he told the developers. can report to you there will be a name change. new name has yet to be picked out.
Last week, Christie called it the ugliest building in New Jersey, and possibly America. He said any deal to finish developing a troubled multibillion dollar retail and entertainment complex at the Meadowlands will have to include a new exterior.
The decor, which cost an estimated $40 million, has been a source of curiosity for motorists on the turnpike and a joke for late night comedians. It features rectangular panels of orange, brown, blue and lime.
Late last year, Triple Five, which owns the Mall of America in Minnesota and the West Edmonton Mall in Canada, signed a letter of intent with lenders to complete the development of the complex and possibly expand it.
Hanson repeated that possibility Thursday, saying are exploring ways that we can increase the size of that facility. about 10 miles west of New York City, next to the Izod Center and across a highway from the $1.6 billion New Meadowlands Stadium that is slated to host the 2014 Super Bowl, the decor of the complex has been a source of curiosity for motorists traveling the New Jersey Turnpike. But at malls with entertainment components, they spend three hours, he said.

Ariana Grande reportedly had a proposed performance at the White House rejected because of the outcry over her doughnut licking scandal last year.
WikiLeaks published thousands of emails on Friday that it had hacked from the Democratic National Committee, including one thread revealing Ariana was vetted prior to being booked to sing at a White House gala late last year.
Gawker reports the singer passed the criminal and financial record checks, but the background checks included a detailed report on the controversy surrounding the incident in which Ariana was caught on camera at a doughnut shop.
The Bang Bang hitmaker licked two doughnut she did not pay for at a bakery in California, and was also caught saying “I hate America”.
There was public outcry after video footage was released, as Republican congressman Jeff Duncan from South Carolina called out America’s “double standards” for not bashing the popstar over her candid words the same way it had presidential candidate Donald Trump over his comments regarding Mexican migrants.
The White House report also includes notes about Ariana blasting a fan over a homophobic remark about her gay brother Frankie.
In the leaked emails, staff member Kevin Snowden summarizes the vetting of the pop star, and wrote, “Video caught her licking other peoples’ dounuts while saying she hates America; Republican Congressman used this video and said it was a double standard that liberals were not upset with her like they are with Trump who criticized Mexicans;Cheap Jerseys from china cursed out a person on Twitter after that person used an offensive word towards her brother.”
Upon this review, White House employee Bobby Schmuck replied simply to the suggestion that Ariana perform at the presidential gala with, “Nope, sorry.”
Whitehall wages war on Canada geese
CHRISTMAS may be coming, but the geese are getting far too fat for the liking of the Government. And the Heritage Department has already shot 100 of them secretly at dawn on Bird Island in St James’ Park, the very place where they were first introduced to Britain from North America, as an ornamental species, by Charles II 325 years ago.
The numbers of Canada Geese, the football hooligans of the bird world, is doubling every eight years. Forty years ago there were only 2,000 in Britain, now there are well over 60,000, and by the end of the decade there will be around 120,000.
They are aggressive, crowding out other waterfowl, and attack children trying to feed the ducks. They damage crops and strip the banks of ponds and lakes of grass.
Cursed with regrettable digestive systems, they produce prodigious amounts of slimy green excrement each bird deposits an inch and a half long dropping every three or four minutes.
They have no natural predators here (even foxes are reluctant to take them on). They can live for 12 years, and they are protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act.
They also have famous friends. The fight got so fierce that Rentokil, the company hired to carry out the cull, refused to do the deed, fearing ‘irreparable’ damage to its reputation.
The RSPCA decries ‘character assassination of a species’ while the RSPB says ‘Canada Geese should be innocent until proven guilty’. Chastened by this fiasco, Whitehall has set up a working group, including conservationists, hunters, bureaucrats and Wandsworth Council, to come up with a ‘humane solution’.
The group has just come up with the idea of coating the eggs with paraffin, but this is banned by the Ministry of Agriculture.
Park keepers in Milton Keynes take the eggs from nests, soon after they are laid, cook them in a tea urn and return them, thus fooling the parents into going to work on hard boiled eggs. Bromley Council puts trip wires around its ponds to stop the geese waddling on to the grass.
Privately many members of the working groups say that killing geese is the only effective solution. Hunters can already shoot them in the spring and summer, but are forbidden to sell their carcasses, and have had little impact on the population.http://www.cheapjerseysfreeshipping.cc And so far, the Government has been wary of ordering an organised slaughter.
The Heritage Department last week admitted to the Independent on Sunday that they had secretly shot 100 geese in St James’s Park in the early hours of one morning last July. Asked why it had not made it public, a spokesman said that was part of ‘the normal day to day management of wildfowl’, before confirming that it was ‘unprecedented’.
One senior Environment Department official has his own solution: he ate a Canada Goose for dinner last New Year’s Day. ‘People say they are inedible,’ he said. ‘They may taste a bit gamey, but they make jolly good eating.’

ATTAWAPISKAT, Ont. Even at the height of so called Goose Break and the depth of an ongoing attempted suicide crisis in this remote James Bay First Nation, Mary’s is humming along.
A steady flow of patrons, greeted by a friendly young woman, order coffee, sandwiches and other basic diner offerings, paying by cash or debit.
Located in a nondescript trailer typical of many Attawapiskat buildings, only an easily missed “open” sign signals the kind of enterprise and normalcy so easily obscured by the headlines that have grabbed international attention and the very real issues facing the community.
On the wall behind the handful of tables and chairs on one end, a large flat screen TV is carrying a slightly snowy version of a news channel from Winnipeg.
In many ways, Attawapiskat population 2,100 has all the trappings of any small town, wholesale jerseys from china including older folk lamenting the changing of the times.
“Nobody goes to churches any more,” a semi retired Mike Gull is telling a visitor. “But when somebody dies, oh, yeah, they pack the church.”
A short distance from Mary’s, down a badly pock marked road whose springtime surface, like all roads in the community, alternates between boot squelching mud, mini lakes and ice, a Northern store is doing a brisk business.
Part supermarket, part department store, Northern would not be out of place in any small town, although southerners might suffer serious sticker shock. A bag of milk goes for $7.99. A case of small pop is on sale for $22. Lines form at the two cash dispensing machines and at the checkouts, even though this is a slow time with the annual exodus to the bush known as Goose Break.
“Right now, everybody is busy hunting,” says Jacklin Kleter Sr. “Most of the families are going out, taking their kids out hunting.”
A few blocks away, the lone Pizza Pizza offers a euphemistically titled “family sized” pizza for $31. A couple of curious kids munch on fries. Outside, a bulldozer belonging to a local construction business growls away at clearing an over full culvert.
Somewhat incongruously in a community that requires about an hour to walk its perimeter, Kleter drives a cab part time. He arrived in 1981 from Moosonee, the nearest main centre about 225 kilometres to the southeast as the crow flies.
“I drive taxi for myself,” Kleter says. “It keeps me busy during the summer months.”
What you won’t find in Attawapiskat is a movie theatre, a busy community centre, or a town hall the band office, closed for Goose Break, is in a temporary trailer because the old permanent office is condemned.
One recent afternoon, as the weather improves, couples thread their way around puddles that young children relish jumping in, while other kids ride bicycles and a plethora of scary looking but totally docile dogs romp around, ignoring the ubiquitous trash that litters the place.
Her favourite pastime, eight year old Shakira Koostachin says, is going to the park near the river or riding a bike.
“We play hide and seek.http://www.cheapnfljerseysonlineus.top Sometimes we go in the bushes,” Shakira says.
The one thing she really would like is to go swimming especially in weeks like these when the modern brick elementary school is closed.
“Most kids are wishing for a YMCA,” she says.
Apart from tracks that run short distances from the reserve say to James Bay or the nearby First World dump there’s nowhere to drive, except around and around Attawapiskat, which some folk like to do.
The isolation and acute housing shortage means almost everything doctors, teachers and everyday supplies has to be flown in, although an ice road in winter and barges when waterways are open are also used. And most pregnant moms still have to be flown out to have their babies.
Many residents small town friendly if somewhat shy are born and raised in the community. Others, like Norbert Witt, a semi retired professor of indigenous studies originally from southern Germany, are from away.
Technically, he says, Attawapiskat has improved from when he first arrived in 1989. For one thing, there is indoor plumbing and tap water, which most people consider a health hazard. On the downside, he says, people are losing their Cree language and the social cohesion has loosened, contributing, he says, to the current crisis.
Gull, however, scratches his head when asked about the rash of attempted suicides by young people that has again put Attawapiskat on the map.
“I wasn’t aware of what there was until I read it in the newspaper,” Gull says. “Nobody said anything to me how bad it was. Until I read it in the paper.”

Ontario won allow turban wearing Sikhs to ride a motorcycle without wearing a helmet, a decision the Canadian Sikh Association called disappointing.
Premier Kathleen Wynne wrote to the organization last week, saying she had struggled with striking the right balance between public safety and religious accommodation.
careful deliberation, we have determined that we will not grant this type of exemption as it would pose a road safety risk, she wrote in the Aug. 14 letter.
the safety of Ontarians is my utmost priority, and I cannot justify setting that concern aside on this issue. mandatory helmet law is based on extensive research that shows the high risk of injury and death for motorcyclists who ride without a helmet, she added. Cheap Jerseys free shipping Mortality rates have gone down 30 per cent and head injury rates down 75 per cent in jurisdictions with such laws.
Courts have also found that Ontario law doesn infringe on the Charter of Rights and Freedoms or the Ontario Human Rights Code, she said.
The association has been a strong advocate for an exemption and presented arguments, Wynne wrote.
the Ontario government has carefully monitored, and considered, the soundness of accommodating your position, drawing on relevant academic research, key legal decisions, and consultations with caucus and the community. organization said it felt let down by the Liberal government, which had promised to bring in legislation that would provide the exemption.
all our discussions and meetings and consultations, we were given the understanding, assurances, commitment that we will be moving forward on this, said Manohar Singh Bal, secretary of the association.
Members of all three parties as well as other high profile Canadian politicians, such as former premier Bob Rae, all support the exemption, he said. Former transportation minister Glen Murray promised to introduce a bill sometime in March or April this year.
premier has reversed her position, I will say, or has not followed through on the understandings and commitments that she gave, Bal said.
British Columbia, Manitoba and the United Kingdom have all enacted legislation that allows turban wearing Sikhs the right to ride a motorcycle, he said.
Wearing a turban is part of their religion and dress code, he said. They can go out in public without wearing one.
part of their very being as a person, Bal said.
Ontario Provincial Police allowed its uniformed officers to wear turbans long ago, but the province won grant Sikhs equality when it comes to the helmet law, he said.
mindboggling how they pick and choose where they want to accommodate Sikhs and where they don want to accommodate Sikhs, he said.
just like we at the mercy of the majority that they will pick and choose which rights we are entitled to and which rights we are not entitled to, and this is a classic example of that. a year ago, Wynne spoke out against Quebec controversial charter which aimed to impose restrictions on religious clothing and symbols on public servants.
Her government introduced a symbolic motion promising to oppose any bills that would restrict people freedom of expression and religion in public places, which was passed unanimously in the legislature.
NDP MPP Jagmeet Singh, who introduced a private member bill to support the helmet law exemption, said he also disappointed in the Liberals and will continue his efforts to protect all articles of faith.
the Wynne Liberals are happy to pay lip service to civil rights, when the rubber meets the road, this so called activist premier is quick to deny the Sikh community rights recognized elsewhere, he said in a statement.

THE BAR room within Gary Stevens’s oceanside home at Malabar is his pride and joy. On its walls are South Sydney jumpers signed by the club’s greatest players, himself included, framed black and white images of the international second rower in his heyday and almost century old jerseys of his grandfather, Arthur Oxford, a goalkicking champion who played in Souths’ premiership team of 1918 as well as for Australia.
It is a collection of memorabilia to drop the jaw of a rugby league historian or Souths tragic. The only problem is that for Stevens the memories do not come flooding back.
A member of the Rabbitohs’ last grand final winning side in 1971, as well as the team that beat Manly to the old NSWRL title the year before, the former international forward shared the most formidable of back rows with Bob McCarthy and Ron Coote, not to mention a pack that also included John O’Neill, John Sattler and George Piggins.
Yet as a result of a perpetual issue with blood clots in his brain, Stevens remembers little if anything of the 1970 and 1971 grand finals. wholesale jerseys from china He believes his memory loss stems from a scrum gone wrong during a Test match against Great Britain at the SCG in the mid 1970s.
”When the scrum broke I was laying face down in the mud. It’s come back to haunt me,” Stevens said. ”I’ve now got a cloud of blood in my brain so I can’t remember too many things. I’ve got to keep taking these tablets every day of my life to thin my blood out. I’d rather have no leg than what I’ve got. I go to functions and I can’t remember people, I can’t remember stories and stuff like that. There’s no pain involved but my memory loss is terrible.”
Stevens lives a comfortable life. He is a picture of fitness, working out three times a week in a gym he has installed in his garage, and his sprawling home and the pair of German SUVs in the driveway are evidence that he did as well as a builder as he did as a footballer.
The memory loss is simply his Achilles heel. His short term memory is the worst. Stevens’s wife Kay took him to yesterday’s ex players function at South Sydney Leagues Club because he cannot remember the way to Redfern Oval. He had to give up the building game because he could not recall where he had put a hammer, ladder or anything else.
What hurts as much as anything, though, is the haziness his storied career with Souths, and later Canterbury, is now imprisoned by. Stevens speaks with unbridled passion about his 163 games for Souths from 1965 to 1976, about captaining the club in his final year there, about his first class lineage and about the 1971 grand final. The details do not readily come back to him, however. ”I can vaguely remember things. As soon as I try and remember it just goes,” he said. ”As soon as I start to think it goes hazy.”
Stevens will be at ANZ Stadium tonight, willing Michael Maguire’s team to upset Des Hasler’s Bulldogs and reach a first grand final in generations. He will do so despite the fact his own time at Redfern ended in acrimony. He played in 1977 and 1978 at Belmore before contracting hepatitis, he suspects through sharing water bottles and sponges in the dressing sheds, and retiring.
”I had 13 years with Souths, I was a Souths junior, and Canterbury treated me twice as good as what Souths did [at the end],” he said. ”The club was going bad financially and they wouldn’t buy us a drink or anything. I used to take the players after a game back to my place for a drink.
”At the end of the year, I played virtually every game and got the best and fairest but they got rid of me. Canterbury treated me like a god.”
That does not mean that Stevens is in any way sitting on the fence tonight. His family has been a famous one at Souths for nearly 100 years so his loyalties are not in question. ”I still respect Souths and I still follow them. It wasn’t the club that did it, it was the people that were in charge then and they’re all dead and buried,” he said. ”I’m still a Souths supporter, right down I hope they win the comp.
”I think they can do it this year. They’ve got to play their best football but I think they can do it.
”It’d be the greatest thing that’s ever happened.”
And if they make the grand final? ”I’m going to go to the game that’s for sure,” he said. ”And I’ll get some enjoyment out of it, whether I remember the game or not.”
The turkey was Benjamin Franklin’s choice for the United States’s national bird. The noble fowl was a favored food of Native Americans. When Europeans arrived, they made it one of only two domestic birds native to the Americas the Muscovy duck shares the distinction.
Yet by the early 20th century, wild turkeys no longer roamed over much of their traditional range. They had been wiped out by hunting and the disappearance of their favored woodland habitat.
Wild turkeys typically forage on forest floors, but can also be found in grasslands and swamps.cheap jerseys They feed on nuts, seeds, fruits, insects, and salamanders.
Wild turkey reintroduction programs began in the 1940s, and the birds were relocated to areas where populations had been decimated but woodlands were recovering. Such efforts worked so well that wild turkeys now live in areas where they may not have occurred when Europeans first reached the Americas. Today, flocks are also found in Hawaii, Europe, and New Zealand.
Only male turkeys display the ruffled feathers, fanlike tail, bare head, and bright beard commonly associated with these birds. They also gobble with a distinctive sound that can be heard a mile (a kilometer and a half) away.
Females lay 4 to 17 eggs, and feed their chicks after they hatch but only for a few days. Young turkeys quickly learn to fend for themselves as part of mother/child flocks that can include dozens of animals. Males take no role in the care of young turkeys.
Domestic turkeys have white tipped tails because they are the descendants of a Mexican subspecies that was taken to Europe for domestication in the early 16th century.http://www.cheapnfljerseysonlinez.top The feature distinguishes them from most modern wild turkeys, though captive diet, lifestyle, and breeding have caused other physical discrepancies.
Why You Feel Dizzy When You Stand Up
The dizziness occurs because of a transient drop in blood pressure. When you stand up quickly, a gravitational force pulls blood toward your feet.
In order to compensate, your nervous system kicks into overdrive, increasing your heart rate and tightening up your blood vessels to try to maintain your BP, says Dr. Gibbons.
But if your blood vessels stay too relaxed, the process becomes delayed. As a result, low blood flow to the brain causes you to feel dizzy and lightheaded for a few seconds.
You more likely to experience this if your blood pressure runs naturally low or if you take BP medications that relax your blood vessels.
Other things that may cause it: lying down for a long time or being dehydrated.
That why it common to feel dizzy or lightheaded when you stand up while you exercising, or after you stagger out of bed when you sick with the flu, says Dr. Gibbons.
Usually the dizziness only lasts for a few seconds before it subsides. That totally normal and nothing to worry about.
But if you notice yourself getting dizzier the longer you stand, you may have a more serious problem.
would suggest that the blood pressure has dropped and is not recovering, says Dr. Gibbons.
A drop in systolic blood pressure top number in a BP reading at least 20 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) after standing for 3 minutes counts as a medical condition called orthostatic hypotension. This affects mainly the elderly, though an estimated 5 percent of people under 50 suffer from it, too.
And it something you want to get checked out right away: People with orthostatic hypotension were significantly more likely to die over a 10 year follow up than those without the condition, a recent study from Dr. Gibbons found.

Orthostatic hypotension can lead to fainting and falls, which can cause injury, but the condition also signals that something in your body isn working properly, says Dr. Gibbons.
It may point to diseases like diabetes or Parkinson both of which can damage your nerves and disrupt your body blood pressure regulation.
So if you notice you always feel dizzy when you get up that it gets worse the longer you stand an appointment with your doctor.
He or she can measure your BP to check for orthostatic hypotension. It may be a simple fix like changing the medications you currently taking, or your doctor may run further tests to find out if there a larger underlying cause.
Wild geese do not increase flight behaviour prior to migration
Hypertrophy of the flight muscles is regularly observed in birds prior to long distance migrations. We tested the hypothesis that a large migratory bird would increase flight behaviour prior to migration, in order to cause hypertrophy of the flight muscles, and upregulate key components of the aerobic metabolic pathways. Implantable data loggers were used to record year round heart rate in six wild barnacle geese (Branta leucopsis), and the amount of time spent in flight each day was identified. Time in flight per day did not significantly increase prior to either the spring or the autumn migration, both between time periods prior to migration (5, 10 and 15 days), or when compared with a control period of low activity during winter. The lack of significant increase in flight prior to migration suggests that approximately 22 min per day is sufficient to maintain the flight muscles in condition for prolonged long distance flight. This apparent lack of a requirement for increased flight activity prior to migration may be attributable to pre migratory mass gains in the geese increasing workload during short flights, potentially prompting hypertrophy of the flight muscles.
