By Phoebe PrettymanThe American flag stood tall and majestically blew in the wind during this year’s Flag Day ceremony. People gathered around the flag located at the Ocean City-Longport Bridge Flag Area on Saturday morning. The crowd included local veterans as well as others who came to show their support. The themes of freedom and pride were expressed several times throughout the program. The event was hosted by the Ocean City Gardens Civic Association to honor local veterans. Patricia Watts, president of OCGCA, opened the ceremony by expressing her gratitude for the veterans and for those who attended the event. She was followed by a beautiful rendition of the National Anthem sung by Katie Gallagher. After that, multiple speakers, including Mayor Jay Gillian, Pastor Matt Stokes, Councilman Michael DeVlieger and former U.S. Ambassador to Panama and former Congressman William J. Hughes, delivered their own remarks.Former U.S. Ambassador and Congressman William J. Hughes addresses the crowd.Mayor Gillian started with the introduction and expressed immense thanks and gratitude for the veterans and current members of the military. He also thanked former Ambassador Hughes for his public service and for attending the event.  Pastor Stokes touched on the symbolism of the flag and how it encompasses so much pride. He gave an insightful invocation and then led the crowd in prayer.  Councilman DeVlieger spoke about how the flag represents freedom on many levels. He also pointed out that the U.S. Coast Guard had a large involvement during the storming of the Normandy beaches 75 years ago during the D-Day invasion. Since Ocean City is a coastal town, there are close ties with the Coast Guard.  Hughes first expressed his thanks to the Ocean City Gardens Civic Association, the event organizer. He also thanked the other speakers, the VFW and the American Legion. He noted that this year is the 244th birthday of the U.S. Army and acknowledged those in the crowd who fought for our country under that branch. The ceremony came to an end after representatives from the VFW and the American Legion raised and then lowered the flag. The flag flies majestically in the breeze.last_img read more

first_imgIbrahim Shuaibu in KanoThe Executive Chairman of Kano State Sports Commission (KSSC), Ibrahim Galadima, yesterday warned that there will be imminent shake up in the commission with the intention to weed out incompetent members of staff.Galadima who spoke during a handing over ceremony to mark his return to office after being handed a fresh mandate to chair the commission by Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, said: “I am still the Ibrahim Galadima that you know. Unproductive staff should be prepared for the exit doors.” He cautioned that, members of staff who are unwilling to change their unacceptable attitude to sports work to either change their mentality or quit.According to the former NFA Chairman, there would be mass redeployment of KSSC officials stationed within and outside the head office of the commission.Galadima stressed that the state sports commission would be further repositioned to pursue short, mid and long term sports developmental objectives of making Kano the hub of sports in the country.Galadima appealed to all employees of the commission to enhance their delivery capacity by pursuing technical and academic courses that would lead to improvement in their productivity.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Photo by Jessica Fitch.by Tracy McCue , Sumner Newscow — In basketball, they call it “getting into the zone” — that rare occasion when a basketball player gets so hot he/she can’t miss. But Baylee Booker, an Argonia freshman girls basketball player, wasn’t just hot last Friday night – she was record-setting, unstoppable, smoking, burn-the-gym-down hot.And she appears to be on her way to making the state record books.On Friday night, when the Argonia girls upset Flinthills 65-54 at home, Booker went 8-for-8 from beyond the 3-point line. She had scored 26 points for the game including a layup. After review of the books and looking at both the game films of Argonia and Flinthills, it was determined Booker never missed.Argonia girls head coach Dixie Brewster called the Kansas Sports Hall of Fame this week, and officials there say that there has never been a girl basketball player who has shot more than five three-pointers without missing.“You see players go 1-for-1 or 2-for-2 on 3-pointers a lot,” Brewster said. “But it is highly unusual to get one girl hitting 4-for-4. Baylee had eight of them. Incredible.”The girls basketball record for 3-pointers is 12, Brewster said. But even that girl wasn’t shooting 100 percent.The thing is, nobody realized such a record was happening at the time.Oh, everyone knew Booker was hot that night, for sure. And she was nailing her outside shots despite being sick with a stomach virus. She had to leave at one point in the fourth quarter to vomit in the locker room.But Booker came back and asked the coaches if she could play again. Brewster put her back on court and she hit another 3-pointer.“We were talking about it after the game and my husband, Dean, does books,” Brewster said. “I asked him if she had four or five 3-pointers, not really keeping track. We looked at the book, and holy cow she hit eight shots.”Then after some more talk, nobody could remember if she actually missed a shot.“We started looking at the film and the answer was no,” Brewster said. “She never did.”The thing is, there was no game plan to give Booker the ball and let her shoot. Jessie Tracy, a junior, is the team’s best 3-point shooter.“They were more focused on her,” Brewster said. “We have always told our girls, if there is a hot shooter, get her the ball. Baylee was hot that game, but never was that really the focus. It just happened.”Flinthills was in a zone defense most of the evening, and there was no box-and-one defense implemented on her when she started scoring. Booker is only 5-0 and her being a freshman may have made the opponent overlook her, Brewster speculated.For the Argonia girls, it was a huge win. The Lady Raiders knocked off the No. 2 team in the SCBL, which up to that point hadn’t lost in league play. The Red Raiders were 6-11 at the time and are now 8-11 after another win Tuesday against Oxford.Booker, who averages six points a game, had two points on Tuesday night against Oxford. Like getting that hole in one in golf, getting in a record setting zone doesn’t happen every ball game.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
