(AP Photo/Anderson Independent-Mail, Mark Crammer)CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Pittsburgh’s Josh Newkirk saw the ball free on the floor about 10 feet from the basket and didn’t know whether to drive to the basket or just put it up, so he let his instincts take over.“I was just happy to pull up and it went in,” said Newkirk, who’s only jumper of the game forced overtime and rescued the Panthers who had trailed 67-62 in the final seconds. “It was my only shot, but the only shot I needed to hit.”Given new life, the Panthers (23-8, 11-7 Atlantic Coast Conference) quickly pushed out to a seven-point lead to win 83-78 in their first visit to Clemson.Lamar Patterson tied his career high with 30 points, including a 3-pointer with 3 seconds left to set up the wild finish to regulation. Damarcus Harrison couldn’t get the inbounds pass in cleanly to K.J. McDaniels near the baseline and Newkirk saw the ball bounce his way when Patterson tipped it. After the shot, officials used monitors on each side of the court to take a look and decided there wasn’t indisputable evidence to rule it had come after time ran out.“We were pretty sure it was a make,” said Pittsburgh coach Jamie Dixon, whose team was stung last month on a 35-foot game-winner by Syracuse’s Tyler Ennis in a 58-56 defeat. “I never came out of the huddle preparing for the overtime.”Patterson said the Panthers, who hadn’t led since midway through the first half, wanted to put the Tigers (19-11, 10-8) away quickly. He hit his fifth 3-pointer to take the lead for good and Cameron Wright added a pair of baskets to put Pittsburgh up 74-67.Clemson cut the lead to three points in overtime, the last at 81-78 on Rod Hall’s steal and layup with 18.8 seconds left. Wright then followed with the clinching foul shots at Pittsburgh moved to 4-0 in overtime games this season.Patterson said the team dug in during the final seconds instead of giving in to Clemson. “We had games where we lost at the end because there was time on the clock still and someone hit the big shot,” he said. “We know when the game’s over is when the horn sounds and not when there’s a couple of seconds left.”McDaniels had 24 points to lead the Tigers, who were seeking their first-ever 11-win ACC season.Wright had 16 points and Talib Zanna 10 points and 10 rebounds.Patterson was 10 of 19 from the field and matched his previous best set against Cal Poly this past December.For much of the game, it looked like the Tigers were in control.Clemson coach Brad Brownell slammed a white board in the huddle before overtime to get his players’ attention, sensing losing such a lead would deflate his players.“I guess you do this long enough, you see a little bit of everything. That’s one that’ll stick with me for a while,” Brownell said.Clemson was up 48-38 after Roper’s third 3 with 12:54 left. But Pittsburgh followed with an 18-8 run, highlighted by Patterson’s takeover. He had a basket, then a three-point play to draw the Panthers within in point. He struck for a 3-pointer 3 minutes later to cut Clemson’s lead to 56-54, then tied it moments later a fast-break layup.Patterson tied the game one last time at 60-all with 3:44 to go before McDaniels’ running jam put the Tigers up for good.This game featured a pair of teams heading in different directions. Pittsburgh was ranked much of the year as it opened 6-1 its first season in the ACC. But things have gotten tougher for the Panthers the past few weeks as they’ve gone just 4-6 heading into the season finale.Clemson, picked 14th out of 15 ACC teams when the season began, has been one of the league’s biggest surprises and has won four of its past five to keep faint hopes of an NCAA trip alive.It was also a game of contrasting styles with the high-pace, high-possession Panthers attacking whenever they saw a crack in the defense. The Tigers rely on their defense, ranked second in the country in fewest points allowed, and taking their time on offense.Pittsburgh got the better of things when the teams met up North in January with 76-43 victory.

By Jay Cook |SHREWSBURY – Lunch Break has been serving hot meals and providing services to Red Bank’s underprivileged for over three decades.But for their anniversary this year, the nonprofit Red Bank institution will extend its offerings beyond the pantry.By the end of next summer, Lunch Break will open its first Life Skills Center – a one-stop shop for those in need to attain personalized guidance towards a high school diploma or support for an entry-level job in the workforce.“We have been helping people with their most immediate needs for 35 years,” said Lunch Break’s executive director, Gwendolyn Love. “We’re excited to be able to take this opportunity and build it into something that’s going to be life-changing for many of our clients.”Lunch Break received approval from Shrewsbury’s planning board last month to completely gut and renovate a 1,250-square-foot former real estate office at 648 Broad St. into the agency’s only satellite location.That location will serve as a services hub for all of Lunch Break’s clients, many of whom are looking to break the cycle of hunger and joblessness, Love said.Gwendolyn Love, the executive director of Lunch Break, and Sharda Jetwani Love, Lunch Break’s program director, will be spearheading the non-profit’s new Life Skills Center opening later this year in Shrewsbury. Photo by Jay CookSharda Jetwani Love, Lunch Break’s program director, said the Life Skills Center is a “job readiness program helping those who are unemployed, underemployed or just looking for more skillsets to help them attain a level of financial stability.”When the center opens later this year, Jetwani Love said it will offer soft skills like interviewing tips, résumé guidance and prep for GED programs. Local representatives from the education, business and development sectors will make up a steering committee to help find the best methods of assistance.Jetwani Love said the Life Skills Center will provide a personalized experience for each of its clients. If someone is looking to attain a high school diploma, Jetwani Love said there is a pathway established with Brookdale Community College in Lincroft to reach that goal. For those on governmental assistance, representatives from the Monmouth County One-Stop will be easily accessible for help in finding employment.Lunch Break has also created pacts with numerous successful businesses in Monmouth and Ocean counties where graduates of the Life Skills Center can get an entry-level job and rise through the ranks. Some of those companies are Sickles Market, soon opening on Red Bank’s West Side; Meridian Healthcare; Sunrise Senior Living; and at any of the 11 local Home Depot branches in the two counties.“You may come in entry level but there’s a pathway to work up the ladder in the organization,” Love said. “That’s golden. It’s how you get into self-sustainability.”Shrewsbury Mayor Don Burden said there are “no negatives at all” for the Life Skills Center opening in the 2.3-square-mile town neighboring Red Bank.“They’re reaching out to surrounding communities outside of the Red Bank base, which I think is very helpful, and I’m hopeful some of the work they’ll be doing there will result in some of these people finding employment in Shrewsbury,” Burden said.Lunch Break is busier than ever in its 35 years operating in Red Bank. Just last year, Love said the nonprofit served 80,000 hot meals; delivered 70,000 meals to homebound clients; had 10,000 visits to the client choice pantry; and have anywhere between 750 and 850 people a month visit for the pantry.“Wouldn’t it be wonderful if our numbers were dwindling on the food services side and growing on the life skills program side? That’s the goal,” Love said.Lunch Break has been offering job searching services to its clients, but not to the extent expected at their new facility. The internet café at its headquarters at 121 Drs. James Parker Blvd. has been used for job researching and employers post opportunities on a job board there. The organization also offers a suit-provision program where clients can schedule to get a fitted suit for an interview.Jetwani Love said she anticipates the Life Skills Center to be busy when doors open.“You trust us enough to come here and get your food, back to school supplies and your toys,” she said. “Why not step in and see how we can help you with budgeting or getting clothes for an interview?”Love said it’s been a total community effort to open the center. A volunteer with Lunch Break who works for JP Morgan Chase helped broker the lease for the Life Skills Center. Love said Lunch Break will lease the building for 11 years at the price of $1 a month. Maser Engineering, a Middletown firm, provided engineering services pro bono for the planning board applications. Metrovation partner Chris Cole, whose group owns The Grove in Shrewsbury, will provide landscaping services and decorations for the Life Skills Center.Lunch Break will apply for grants to Home Depot to pay for the building renovations and Habitat for Humanity will also provide the manpower for the cleanup.And with those relationships, Love said Lunch Break will not only continue its longstanding mission, but also expand it as she sees fit.“Lunch Break is just really excited to embark on this new direction,” Love said. “We think that it just makes sense.” This article was first published in the Feb. 8-15, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.

Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter Ed Lenderman Ed Lenderman, San Diego County tripling spending on programs that fight substance abuse disorders March 26, 2018 SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – San Diego County is looking to triple spending on addiction treatment from $54.6 million to $179.6 million, officials announced today.The Board of Supervisors on Tuesday is set to vote on a Substance Use Disorders Treatment Delivery System aimed at assisting low-income residents facing addiction in addressing the systemic damage the disease inflicts on them, their families and their communities.The move comes amid a rise in deaths attributed to addiction, which is closely linked to other mental illnesses and homelessness, county officials said at a news conference. “We want to get people into drug treatment,” Supervisor Ron Roberts said.“It’s affecting our homeless; it’s affecting, you know, our jail population; it’s affecting people who are in treatment all over the county. We want to do a better job by having a comprehensive system.”The additional funding will expand the county’s existing provider network of case managers, counselors and residential recovery facilities and increase the number of residents served. Methamphetamine was the number-one cause of drug-related deaths in San Diego County and was at an all-time high in 2016, according to the medical examiner’s office. Other leading factors in drug-related deaths were opiates, benzodiazepines and alcohol.At 10:30 AM Monday morning, County elected officials joined treatment providers, health care experts and federal and local criminal justice leaders to unveil a comprehensive, “Substance Use Disorders Treatment Delivery System.” Posted: March 26, 2018
