Team of the Week: Penfield Patriots

first_imgTeam of the Week: Penfield Patriots By PAUL GOTHAMWeather cut a swathe into the local high school (and Triple-A for that matter) baseball schedule over the past seven days. That didn’t stop a few Section V squads from getting a jump start on the season while spending time south of the Mason-Dixon Line.The Penfield Patriots ended their spring break trip with a 3-1 mark including a dramatic win in extra innings to close the week. Andrew Ebersol turned in the third strong starting pitching performance of the week for Nick Marcin’s Patriots. Ebersol allowed one run on six hits over six-and-a-third innings of work. The senior hurler fanned 11 and walked none. Gage Ziehl made a game-saving play at third in the bottom of the seventh going to his backhand to take away a sure hit down the line with winning run in scoring position. The freshman led the top of the eighth with a double and scored as Penfield went on to win, 4-1. Ziehl started and set down five on strikes over 4.2 innings in Penfield’s 10-3 win over West Seneca East (VI) in the season opener. Ziehl finished 2-for-3 with double and three runs scored in the opener. Ben Harrison surrendered one hit over six innings in Penfield’s 10-0 win over Notre Dame (WVA) on Thursday. The junior struck out three without a walk.WE DIDN’T FORGET ABOUT … McQuaid Jesuit Knights – The reigning Class AA champs and NYS semi-finalists went 5-1 on their trip to Dodgertown in Vero Beach, Florida. Erik Johnson and Ryan O’Mara both turned in complete-game outings for the Jesuit Knights. O’Mara scattered four hits, fanned six and walked none in a 4-0 win over Johnson Central. Johnson allowed one run on six hits in a 4-1 win over Marion County (OH). The senior left-hander struck out 10 without a walk. Hunter Walsh hurled six scoreless in a 7-0 win over West Jessamine. Batting out of the two-hole, Ben Beauchamp collected four multi-hit games and scored eight runs and drove in four.Canandaigua Braves – Dale Werth’s club only logged only one game, but the Braves made the most of it pulling out 5-4 win at Irondequoit. Playing without 2017 First Team All-County selection Seth Vigneri, Canandaigua held off a late Irondequoit rally for a win in the season opener for both teams. Junior Mike Sculli fanned 11 over 4.2 innings of work, and Connor Fisher picked up the win in relief hurling two-and-a-third scoreless. Fisher also delivered the game-winning RBI in the sixth. Jordie Johnstone finished 3-for-3 with two doubles, two RBI and a run scored.  Canandaigua Braves, Junior Mike Sculli, Nick Marcin Patriots, Penfield Patriots Leave a Reply Cancel ReplyYour email address will not be published.

‘From the conventional to the cunning’: Gauke takes on criminal gangs in prisons

first_imgLord chancellor David GaukeSource: AlamyIn his first public speech since taking office two months ago, Gauke told an audience at the RSA (Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce) in London that drugs are the biggest cause of prison violence.Gauke said gangs are exploiting the emergence of psychoactive substances such as ‘spice’ – which can be sold in prisons for more than their street value – and targeting a literally ‘captive market’.Pages of fake legal letters purporting to be from a prisoner’s solicitor are soaked in drugs, Gauke said. Paint in supposed children’s drawings to parents in prison are laced in liquid psychoactive drugs. Some offenders deliberately breach licence conditions so they can return to prison to smuggle in drugs. ‘From the conventional to the cunning … these criminal gangs will stop at nothing to maintain their access to such a lucrative market,’ Gauke said.The lord chancellor announced that, as part of a £14m investment, the government is setting up an intelligence and serious organised crime team to work with the National Crime Agency to identify gangs and stop their ability to operate in prisons. Technology is being installed in 30 prisons to enable officers to download data from seized phones.Gauke said he wants to rethink prisoner categories, looking not just at the length of a prisoner’s sentence but also their behaviour in prison, ensuring that ‘ringleaders’ are cut off from their network. He also announced that he is convening a cross-governmental group of senior ministers, with the prime minister’s ‘full backing’, to work across departments to reduce reoffending and its annual £15bn cost to society.Gauke stressed the importance of showing prisoners that the ‘path of further criminality only leads to more punishment and less freedom’. Highlighting the importance of incentives, the justice secretary said he witnessed, during his tenure as secretary of state for work and pensions, how a ‘mixture of incentives, support and sanctions’ can influence behaviour. Lord chancellor and justice secretary David Gauke has declared war on criminal gangs who have become increasingly brazen about how they smuggle drugs into prison.#*#*Show Fullscreen*#*#last_img read more

Death on First Street. In My Little Town.

first_imgA few weeks ago, I was at a conference in the downtown of a small U.S. city. The subject was retail, and, specifically, the future of downtown retail. Brick-and-mortar retail. It was the day after the United States Supreme Court ruled (South Dakota vs. Wayfair Inc.) that Internet retailers can be required to collect sales taxes, even in states where they have no physical presence.According to a report in the New York Times, Marty Jackley, South Dakota’s attorney general, called the ruling a big win for “Main Streets across America.” He said the decision could be particularly significant for rural areas where local businesses have been hit hard by competition from online retailers.So there I was, in a town of roughly 80,000 inhabitants. In a county of perhaps 140,000. In a citizens-participating, standing-room-only discussion of retail’s brick-and-mortar future in a lovely hotel right on First Street downtown.We talked about what makes specialty retailing go in these days. About “authenticity” in retailing and what it means, about lessons from the so-called digital natives.Yah, yah, yah.Then a hand went up, and a deeply-felt concern was expressed about the future of the local hardware store. The type of place, evidently, with grit on the floor, and a long-time proprietor who could find you a metric-sized left-handed whaddycallit in a shake of a lamb’s tail.From the description, it sounded like the kind of place that oozed with unique merchandise and expertise. The kind of place that solved problems, and not just sold stuff. The kind of place my grandfather Burkholder visited for fun.Authentic? Absolutely. Cherished by customers?  No question. But in this touristy area, the rent continues to go up. It’s horribly tough to find good help. The next generation went long ago to the big city. And a developer thinks the hardware store’s location would be great for another hotel.There was a pause.And then I asked for a show of hands from the 200-plus individuals in attendance. Nearly all locals.“How many of you are Amazon Prime members?”At least half of the attendees’ right hands climbed into the air.Hmm.Sorry, Mr. Jackley. This is not about price. It’s not been about price for some time.According to the Times, Amazon already collects sales tax in the 45 states that have one, and Wayfair already collects sales tax on roughly 80% of its orders.June’s Supreme Court decision is not going to slow down a high-speed train that long ago left the station.With the clear exception of deep discount retailing, today and tomorrow’s value proposition is all about ease of ordering, convenience of payment, and a global expanse of merchandise opportunity.All delivered to your doorstep.In the next hour or so.I didn’t have an easy answer for the small town. Do you?#IamIntellast_img read more

Commentary Covering the Buckeyes from a new perspective

I have been covering the Buckeyes since the beginning of the 2013 season, and I’ve seen every play through a camera lens. But the Big Ten Championship against Michigan State was different.This time, I was not taking photos on the field, seeing as only two of The Lantern’s three photographers were allowed on the field, per Big Ten rules.It was 12 games into the season, and I have been on the sideline for 11 of them, since I did not travel to California earlier in the season, and it has been all the same to me.It’s my job.I go to each stadium, grab my cameras, head down to the field and do my job before heading to the post game press conference to film OSU coach Urban Meyer, all the way up until the team’s 24th win.But this game was different.Not only did I not have a camera lens in front of me during the Big Ten Championship game, but I didn’t get to see Meyer talk about winning either.It was an entire new experience for me as sports journalist.I stood in the press box as the game began, instead of sitting by the Buckeyes end zone anticipating the kickoff with the rest of Lucas Oil Stadium. Instead, I was with countless other reporters, fingers hovering over their keyboards, ready to analyze the first play of the game.I saw the Buckeyes and the Spartans begin the game from a birds eye view, I could see everything happening, against just what was through the lens of my camera.It was almost like a culminating moment for me, the sign that the season was winding down and my football coverage at The Lantern was coming to a close. As I watched these athletes on the field, each snap was one snap closer to it being over, for me and for them.Regardless of a win or a loss, one more game would be all there was left in this season.One more, and it was over.Time for me to leave the 2013 football season behind, and move on to coverage for other sports and move towards graduation in the spring. It was also time for some of these athletes to finish their college football careers and move onto graduation, and even the NFL for some.If I would have been told a year ago that I would have covered the Buckeyes all season, I wouldn’t have believed it. I’ve been incredibly fortunate for the opportunities working for The Lantern has provided me.And this game pulled it all together for me.I saw the game from high above and even throughout the stadium when I took some time during the second half to go watch the game from the fans point of view.I watched the Buckeyes and their fans look defeated when the clock hit zero and they were handed their first loss in just under two years.I watched players walk into the locker room in tears, something I have never seen while covering this team.I sat front row and watched Meyer tell the media he was proud of his team, despite the loss and the missed chance at the BCS National Championship Game.I covered what was probably my last game for the Buckeyes, and I saw the entire experience from a whole new light.What felt like the end to my football coverage at OSU, I’m sure felt like the end to many players as well. It was almost like a sign for me that while it was great while it lasted, it’s time to see what’s next.It’s time to go see something new, and from another new point of view. read more

Simeone wont underestimate Real Madrid and Barcelona

first_imgAtletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone doesn’t want to fall under the trap of underestimating Real Madrid and Barcelona’s recent form.With Real Madrid and FC Barcelona getting so many unexpected results lately, one could easily fall under a trap and underestimate both squads, but not Diego Simeone.The Atletico Madrid manager gave a press conference this Saturday ahead of the Colchoneros’ La Liga match against Real Betis on Sunday, the Argentine coach analyzed the club from the city of Sevilla and recognized they have improved vastly in the last couple of seasons under Quique Setien.But the press wanted to know what he thinks about the bad moments that both Real Madrid and Barcelona are going through right now in La Liga, ‘Cholo‘ responded on the same line he’s always done when they ask him tricky questions.The manager thinks that underestimating both squads this early in the season would be a mistake.“Every single league in Europe except the Italian where Juventus are at a steady pace, are very closely competed and that is very healthy for European football,” said Simeone when quoted by Diario AS.David Villa, SpainQuiz: How much do you know about David Villa? Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to test your knowledge about Spanish legendary forward David Villa.“This gives every single team a bigger possibility to compete against anyone, every single one of them interprets football in their own way, many of them believe that they grow from having a solid defense and we all know that it’s not easy winning anywhere these days.”“Real Betis’ biggest growth was on their defense, that’s for sure. It’s complicated to analyze the championship after only ten games.”“After the match in Vigo we grew more, we don’t want to look anywhere else. The squad is more regular during the moments when we control the ball, and the quality comes after that,” he concluded.📡 🎥 | #ATMFLASH🎙 @Simeone shares his views ahead of #AtletiRealBetis#AúpaAtleti pic.twitter.com/ClkXA7Vhha— Atlético de Madrid (@atletienglish) October 6, 2018last_img read more
