first_imgCentral Arkansas was the most recent to contribute, and Black went on a shopping spree with a Wal-Mart gift card this past week. More than $25,000 was raised within 48 hours of the fire. Other gifts including clothing, furniture and bedding have allowed Black to move comfortably into his sister’s home. Nearly every conference school or individuals from member schools donated to the Coach Black relief effort. “My family and I want to say thanks to everybody for everything,” Black said. “It’s helped a lot.” “Coach Black is one of the most resilient people I’ve ever seen,” said NSU men’s basketball coach Mike McConathy, dean of SLC basketball coaches in his 19th season. “He has a great gift of being able to put things behind him and to move forward with enthusiasm. Coach Black’s deep involvement with NSU Athletics extends off campus. He is also actively engaged with both local high schools, his alma mater Natchitoches Central and St. Mary’s, and is a beloved figure around state and Southland Conference athletic circles. Southland Conference member schools and the conference office as well as countless NSU fans smiled back when Coach Black and his family were in need. More than $40,000 has been donated since Black’s grandmother’s house, which was his primary residence, burned in July. Coach Black also has another nickname, “The Commissioner,” for his far-reaching influence and impact. The 40-year-old returned to the home and helped them escape, garnering status as a “Hometown Hero” from the The Modern Woodmen of America. The organization made a donation to the Natchitoches Boyd and Girls Club in Black’s honor. Coach Black escaped a fire at his grandmother’s house before realizing his niece and his mother were still inside. “He has a tremendous support group in his family and also around this community. Coach Black is loved and revered by so many people. I’ve seen the outpouring of love from so many, and it’s because he is so giving with his love and affection to everyone who crosses his path.” He’s unofficially known as the assistant head coach for all sports with the unique ability to “fire” anybody and everybody he wants, only to bring them back within minutes. Coach Black was also honored as the Exchange Bank Demon Great of the Game on Sept. 13 during the home opening football game against Lamar. NATCHITOCHES, La. — Harris Ray Wilson, Jr., known affectionately at Northwestern State as “Coach Black,” is the first smiling face to greet opponents as they set foot in NSU’s athletics venues. Returning the kindness to Coach Black and his family is one more way the SLC is #SouthlandStrong.last_img read more

first_imgThe second part started colder, Granada grabbed the hope that gave the marker, with only that 0-1 against. Diego Martínez maintained the plan of the three plants, Kryptonite so many times of Cholo. If Vadillo kicked high a foul from the front, Atletico responded with a counter of Correa that ended up in Saul volley and a good stop Aaron. The Granada was gaining meters when Simeone tried to turn his team around. It was Lodi, who went away pointing at the clock, as fed up with that routine, so many times changed, inside Carrasco.Atletico had already locked himself in the cave, alone, without being pushed by Granada, giving him meters and ball. 54,113 people now held their breath at the same time. All weights there again, the Atleti desmadejado, the chances of Granada hanging around the area. Q20 minutes left when Oblak first appeared in the game. And thank goodness: he took out a soldier’s spur shot with his miracle hand that was wrapped in ‘Psychosis’ music. Suddenly he returned to weigh up his coat. That old rojiblanco vice of suffering for not killing the games. Cast belt, cast Koke, cast Vitolo, as if they had been them and not Granada with midweek game. And Diego Martínez who introduced more gunpowder: a defender (Martínez) and Carlos Fernández. The Atleti was only chasing shadows, rivals, gasping. Some whistle began to be heard. All weights had become a fear. Fear that they were whistles at the entrance of Lemar, to the fouls that Granada threw from the front, his corner in 89 ’, his corner in 91’. To the history of always, mark and back, although yesterday it was won, although at last this Atleti won again. The most intense, deepest Athletic, winner of each duelVitolo brushed the stick in one shot, the Granada had only threatened once, far shot, after a loss of Thomas. Koke kept filling all eyes, all plays. Koke asked her, played her, showed herself, assumed responsibility for the la C ’that leads to the arm. As such he saw the yellow one. No entry, no hands, no zancadillear. Just for marking territory, acting as a captain before Soldier, reprimanding him for his fault. At that time, Granada, without football, introduced the game in the mud. Faults, kicks, elbows, a whole catalog by Foulquier, Herrera, Soldier. The last one was played the second yellow ten minutes after the first by leaving the elbow behind and hitting Correa in the area. The referee saw nothing and neither did the VAR. The match was another. All divided balls, protests, stops. And Diego Martínez who had already changed his scheme, from 4-4-2 to the three centrals. He did not improve his game but did prevent Atleti from biting him. CardsReferee: César Soto GradoVAR Referee: David Medié JiménezYangel Herrera (25 ‘, Yellow) Soldier (26 ‘, Yellow) Koke (26 ‘, Yellow) Foulquier (35 ‘, Yellow) Thomas (67 ‘, Yellow) Vrsaljko (68 ‘, Yellow) Sundays Duarte (83 ‘, Yellow) Vitolo (85 ‘, Yellow) Victor Diaz (87 ‘, Yellow) Köybasi (89 ‘, Yellow ChangesCarrasco (58 ‘, Renan Augusto), Doors (58 ‘, Vadillo), Gil Dias (58 ‘, Yangel Herrera), Carlos Fernandez (74 ‘, Martínez), Lemar (86 ‘, Koke), Antonio Moya (86 ‘, Vitolo) Atletico got rid of what weighed tons. The weight of unmarked goals. The one with so many injured legs at once. How cold winter can be in León. All that weight that was the fear that hammered in the chest against Granada, the need to win again, while the Metropolitan unrolled that banner, ‘With you until he died’, the players made him that old Cholo motto. “To die mine die.” He jumped into the field like old Atleti did. He didn’t press, he bit. But Koke had returned and Koke has not only a flashlight on his legs, but also all the Cholo times. Not even five minutes had passed and the stadium was already screaming in the depth of the night the scream of the goal.Atletico had drawn in rhombus before a Granada with the head in another place, the Cup, the bench full of headlines, including the goalkeeper, Rui Silva, Aaron’s debut. Thomas was the anchor, Llorente on the right, Saul on the left and Koke hanging around the midpoint, behind the tips. Bands released completely for Vrsaljko and Lodi climbs. A tactical arrangement that swallowed Granada like a quicksand from the first ball. He lacked air and also luck. A clash between two Nasrid footballers who fell like bowling in a throw-in gave Koke the ball at the gates of the area. Plic, flashlight on and go to Correa. Goal. 60,000 people removed all weights at once. A deafening roar turned out. In the background, next to the banner with the face of Gabi was also raised that of Godin.last_img read more

first_imgVeteran athlete Ricardo Cunningham is hoping that his own self-drive and self-belief will help him to make the best of what is left of his time on the track. He has his sights set on a successful year in either the 800 metres or 400m hurdles this year. Thirty-six-year-old Cunningham is hoping that he will be able to make one last hurrah and qualify for the 2016 Olympics in Brazil. “I have been encouraged over the years to try the 400m hurdles. My personal best over the 400m is 46.20 seconds, and the 800m has given me a lot of strength, and this event (400m hurdles) is a combination of speed and strength. It’s just for me to work on putting both speed and strength together in order to improve over the hurdles,” he told The Gleaner. The former Racers Track Club athlete, now at Cameron Blazers, finished top of the field at the recent MVP Track and Field Classic. It was his second competitive 400m hurdles, and the many-time national 800m champion clocked 50.28 seconds, the third-fastest time of the night. Ansert Whyte (49.39) of Racers Track Club and his teammate, Javarn Gallimore (50.09), finished ahead of Cunningham. Cunningham explained that the aim is to “do whatever it takes to get in the top three at trials”. Despite being in what many would consider the twilight of an athlete’s career, Cunningham is aiming to outperform his younger rivals at the National Senior Championships in June. No doubt, it will be a much sterner test than his 800m pet event where he has a personal best of 1:47.14 minutes. “It’s a new event; it’s going OK. It requires a lot of technique, but I am enjoying it thus far. The focus hasn’t been shifted from the 800m as I am still preparing for both events. They go hand in hand.”last_img read more

first_imgThe late Reverend Maxwell P. Magbinne, a Baptist clergy referred to by members of the Fundamental Baptist Churches as “Hero of faith” was laid to rest on August 22. He died August 7 after a protracted period of illness.Having received the Christian faith as far back as the 1960s and staying therein during the good times and trials, the late Rev. Magbinne is praised by members of his denomination for roles he played in their blessed weddings; building many churches; leading many people to Christ; purchasing more properties for the Calvary Baptist Church, which he once led as a pastor; and reconciling the Fundamental Baptist Churches that almost fell apart in the 1980s.Tributes during the funeral indicated that Reverend Maxwell Magbinne was though cool-tempered, emotionally intelligent, and soft in speech; nevertheless, he could not compromise the truth for an individual’s interest.On this basis, his numerous admirers said he would use the Gospel to preach and speak the truth to the congregation without regard for anyone’s displeasure about the message he had to deliver.Sympathizers in their elegies did not end their tributes with the regular saying, “May his soul rest in peace,” but were confident that “His soul is resting in peace with the Lord.”“I knew him for saying the truth whether somebody likes it or not. As long as it was scriptural and rational for the good of all, the late Rev. Magbinne will speak it in his sermon and discussion with members of the church. He was a great man of God whose faith could not waver, and I know without condition, he is resting with the Heavenly Father,” a sympathizer elegized.In his tribute, Saye Magbinne, the Late Rev. Magbinne’s son, said for as long as he knew his father and mother, he never saw them fight. “Despite his old age and ailing condition, my dad could cover long distances during the war years just to propagate the Gospel in the interior, and no day could we be late for service. We were always punctual.”The senior pastor of Calvary Baptist Church, Rev. G. Larque Vaye, said in tribute delivered via telephone, “Rev. Magbinne was a devoted preacher, good husband to learn from, hero of faith, reconciler, development-oriented leader, a visionary and one without fear or favor when it comes to the truth.”Rev. William M. Kolaglaye, who delivered the funeral discourse, said “Rev. Magbinne, led the Calvary Baptist Church for years and purchased parcels of land, one of which the Calvary Baptist School is built on in the Fiamah Community.His widow, Mrs. Martha Magbinne, acknowledged how the two of them remained in good relationship since their marriage in 1971 and called each other ‘Mamie and Daddy’. “My husband remained faithful to his God even when he became very sick from 2008, and because he could not speak as a result of illness, he only said ‘hallelujah’ when people came around him.” Their union was blessed with six children. The late Rev. Maxwell Magbinne retired from active preaching in 2008 when he became paralyzed and dumb from hypertension. Though sick for a protracted period of time, family sources say he took his last breath on August 7 when his last cherished daughter, Nienbei mysteriously died after two days on the first job she got after completing college. The daughter was immediately buried. According to family sources, he convulsed in grief and tried to voice out, but could not because of his condition. “It was from the convulsion that he also passed away right after the little girl’s death,” a family member said.Reverend Maxwell Magbinne was born on September 9, 1948 in Yuula, Bong County. He would have been 67 years old this year. He is survived by his wife Martha who he married in 1971; five children, ten grand children; four brothers and three sisters; all living in Liberia. His profile indicates that upon completing high school, he became interested in preaching the Gospel, thereby leading him to attending the Mid-Baptist Mission Bible Institute in Tappita, Lower Nimba County in the 1970s.Upon completion, he became actively involved with evangelizing and planted churches in Monrovia and other parts of the country.He was also privileged to travel for seminars and conferences to the United States where he gained much experience in church administration.He is recorded for leading the Calvary and Beawo Baptist Churches on 18th Street and using his leadership skills to acquire properties for them, something members count on to describe him as a true visionary.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgPALMDALE — A stepped-up Antelope Valley crime-suppression effort has damaged the critical infrastructure of several prominent criminal street gangs, a sheriff’s official said. Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Lt. Bobby Denham said an undisclosed number of gang members who serve in leadership capacities were arrested in the Antelope Valley Crime-Fighting Initiative. Denham, who has been assigned to coordinate the program, acknowledged targeting criminal street gang leaders to be a key component of the initiative. He said the arrests were a significant development in the Antelope Valley’s ongoing crime-fighting effort. “Organized criminal activity is directed through some of these individuals in leadership roles,” Denham said Wednesday. “By arresting these individuals, it makes an impact.” Denham would not identify the “decision-makers” or the gangs they represent, but he said the arrests involved gang members in leadership positions in both Lancaster and Palmdale. The crime-fighting initiative has produced more than 300 felony and misdemeanor arrests since it was launched March 20 on orders from Sheriff Lee Baca, Denham said. The program has resulted in the arrests of 24 known gang members. Sheriff’s deputies have also cited 27 known gang members and established contact with 91 others. Denham would not reveal a timetable for which specific locations will be targeted, but he said the suppression effort will include Lancaster and Palmdale, and surrounding unincorporated areas including Littlerock, Quartz Hill and Lake Los Angeles. — Gideon Rubin (661) 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_img Genoa goalkeeper Mattia Perin Liverpool target Mattia Perin is unlikely to leave Genoa before the end of the season, according to the player’s agent.The goalkeeper has been linked with a switch to Anfield after a series of stunning displays, although Matteo Roggi says he has not had any contact from Liverpool.And he says Perin, 21, wants to stay at Genoa until the end of the season unless an ‘undeniably good’ offer arrives in the winter transfer window.“I think it’s normal that when you do well, big teams tend to be interested. But at the moment I haven’t heard anything from Liverpool so I think it’s only a rumour for now,” Roggi told“Mattia is one of Genoa’s finest pieces, but logic leads me to state that he will stay there until the end of the season.“He needs to in order to keep growing at what he feels like his home. And that’s what he thinks too.“Obviously in football, you can never say never because if in January somebody came with an undeniably good offer, then he would leave.” 1last_img read more

first_imgGuardiola is famously a disciple of Marcelo Bielsa, the legendary Argentinian coach, who was appointed Leeds manager over the summer – an appointment that shocked the footballing world.Prior to the campaign getting under way the Whites were backed to win promotion from the Championship and return to the top flight for the first time since their relegation in 2004, and they have started the season brilliantly to further support these claims.Bielsa’s side sit first in the division, ahead of Middlesbrough on goal difference, with the two top of the table rivals drawing 0-0 last week to both continue their unbeaten starts to the season. 3 Cardiff and Preston play out stalemate in Championship early kick-off GREAT NEWS Getty Bannan penalty helps Sheffield Wednesday strengthen grip on play-off place Delph is one of one many to believe this is the year Leeds will get back into the Premier League, having been impressed by his former club throughout the early stages of the campaign.“I’ve been watching closely and I’ve been really impressed with the way they’ve been playing,” Delph told talkSPORT.“The fan base there is absolutely incredible so if you’ve got a team that’s doing well, with fans like that behind you, it’s always going to give you that extra push.“I’m quietly confident that Leeds will get promoted this season.”Not only have Leeds been securing a number of impressive results, they have been doing so by playing some of the most breath-taking football ever seen in the second tier.
