Middletown schools kick off football season this weekend

first_img Former Middletown High School North and Monmouth University star defender Anthony Vazquez (#16) played for the Puerto Rico National Team in their friendly game with World Cup champion Spain. The Middletown native defended some of the best players in the world during the match that went to Spain, 2-1. Vazquez plays professionally with the Puerto Rico Islanders in the North American Soccer League. BILL DENVER EQUI-PHOTO When the NJSIAA added a fifth group classification—Group V— to its football playoff brackets, Middletown High School South coach Steve Antonucci and many others surrounding the program thought that would mean a move up from Group III to Group IV in Central Jersey for his team.“I thought originally we’d be in Group IV,” Antonucci said. “We’re the largest Group III (in Central Jersey). We still have a good amount of teams that have been in Group III, including (defending Central Jersey champion) Neptune and a lot of good Mercer County teams like Nottingham, Hamilton and Ewing.” Middletown South Long Branch High School, Manasquan High School and Holmdel High School have moved into Group III, according to Antonucci, who said that his team comes off a great, dedicated offseason program.“They got right into the weight room where we started seeing signs of improvement,” said Antonucci, whose team wrapped up a 7-3 season in 2011 with an opening-round state playoff loss to Northern Burlington County Regional High School.Crosstown rival Middletown High School North remains in Group IV and it lost prolific running back Joe Racioppi, who is off to a college career at Springfield College, but a solid supporting cast returns off last year’s 4-6 team.Both Middletown North and Middletown South play in the Shore Conference A North division, which added Colts Neck High School this season. Middletown South looks to regain the division title it won two years ago. Middletown North The Eagles and the Lions have a bye week during the opening week off the season and they will start their seasons the following weekend. Middletown North plays host to Brick Memorial High School on Sept. 14 at 7 p.m., while Middletown South travels to Brick Township High School on Sept. 15.Mater Dei High School (Middletown) has a good nucleus under third-year coach Steve Sciarappa after coming off a seasonending 35-29 victory over Keansburg High School on Thanksgiving for the team’s lone triumph in an injury-riddled 2011 season. That game has been moved this season to the Sept. 8 opener at Mater Dei, which plays in the Shore Conference B Central division.A closer look at the teams reveals: MIDDLETOWN SOUTH Mater Dei Junior Kyle Brey takes over at quarterback where his older brother, Howie, played before graduating in the spring and embarking on a baseball career atRutgers University.“[Kyle is] picking up the offense well,” said Antonucci. “He shows arm strength and is not fleet of foot, but he can help our running game.”Antonucci has introduced a “pistol” offense, a sort of spread set that shows one running back, three wide receivers and a tight end.Jake Ripnick, a senior who rushed for just under 1,000 yards last season, returns at running back and is joined by junior Jeremy Concepcion. Senior wide receiver Anthony Citarella looks like a leading target for Brey, as are juniors Andrew Wisialko and senior Eli Smith, who is a transfer from St. John Vianney High School who also can run the ball and start at cornerback. Taylor Hendrickson, a junior tight end, has drawn interest from NCAA Division I-AA teams. He also starts on defense at tackle.Antonucci said a young lineup held the Eagles back last season, but they showed signs of maturing later in the year. Staying healthy, especially on the lines, will be important for the team in 2012.Three starters return on the offensive line. Senior Mike Roibal, who is a 6-foot- 2-inch and 215-pound guard, will be joined by senior tackle Keith Wiley (6-3, 220) and senior center Dylan McCabe (5-10, 240), who is transitioning from the guard position. New starters are junior tackle Jon Low (6-0, 195) and sophomore guard James Wilson (6-4, 230).On defense, 5-foot-10-inch, 215-pound senior Derek Noah is breaking in at the other tackle spot in the 4-4 formation. Seniors Eric Maynes (6-3, 215) and Brandon Joseph (6-0, 200) are new starters at end. Senior Ryan Patterson is a returning starter at inside linebacker, but the other three players— senior Justin Chenoweth on the inside with senior Rob Martini and Concepcion on the outside—are new to the lineup.Citarella is in his third season starting at safety, while junior Drew O’Connell is the other cornerback.Senior Luke Lawson (6-1, 215), who plays on the offensive line, and junior Connor Spreen (6-0, 200), who plays at defensive tackle, are backups who will be ready when needed.Senior Connor Ryan, a senior, was one of the leading kickers in the Shore last season and he will also punt. MIDDLETOWN NORTH Cody Thompson, who started at guard for the school’s high powered basketball team during the 2011-12 season, is starting again at quarterback this year for the football team, where he throws and runs well. Senior JaredMosier is the leading running back, while seniors Rob Spinelli and Nick Welsh are back at wide receiver. Juniors Brandon Piccini and Jake Betkowski are expected to see a lot of action at wideout, as well.“They are picking things up a lot faster and it seems a lot smoother than in the past,” said Lions coach Joe Trezza, whose team started 0-3 in 2011 and then went on to win four straight games before losing at the cutoff to Shore Conference A South champion Southern Regional High School. Ironically, the Lions lost in the state consolation playoffs to A North Division newcomer, Colts Neck.“Offensively, we spread the ball around enough that it will be hard to key on us,” Trezza said. “Our defense looks good, especially up the middle.”Two starters return on the right side of the offensive line—seniors Anthony Migliaccio, a 6-foot-3-inch and 285-pounds guard, and 5-foot-11-inch, 140-pound tackle Tom Klemm. Seniors James Corr (5-7, 240) at guard and Pat Anderson (6-1, 220) at tackle are on the left side of the line, while the center will either be senior Nick Corrado (5-8, 215) or junior John Quinn (5-7, 235).Senior Mike Gallucci (6-0, 245) anchors the defensive line in the 3-4 formation at nose tackle, and senior Kyle Gebhardt (6-0, 235) is back at end. Senior John Bacci (6-1 215) starts at the other end. Returning starters Spinelli and senior Dom Pedone will play at outside linebacker and inside linebacker, respectively. Junior inside linebacker Dan Napolitano, who sat out last season, and either senior Nick Wallace or sophomore Troy Thompson will start at the outside linebacker spot. Piccini and Betkowski are the cornerbacks, while Welsh is starting again at safety alongside junior Ryan McMahonSophomore Nick Banta, who saw a little action kicking in 2011, will see regular duty there and as the punter this season. MATER DEI The graduation of last season’s starting quarterback, Jesse Meyer, opens the position to players looking to run the triple option. The Seraphs’ options are senior Mike Farrell, sophomore Christian Palmer and juniorDerrick Lopez, who is a transfer from Rahway High School who will start at defensive back.Junior Sam Miles is back at fullback, while the halfbacks will include the candidates at quarterback who do not start there and sophomores Vincenzo Mezzacappa and Pat Donohue. Sophomore Jay Mandile is one of the two wide receivers, while the offensive line returns all five starters with senior Shane Sullivan at center, juniors Matt Eckert and Ron Perez at guard, and senior Brendan Donnelly and junior Sean Fraser at tackle.Senior Andrew Alexis, at 5-feet-11- inches tall and 315 pounds, is a big presence at nose guard with Donnelly and Sullivan starting at end. Miles leads the linebackers. Farrell and Donohue are cornerbacks, while Lopez, Palmer and Mezzacappa will rotate as the two safeties. BY WAYNE WITKOWSKI Correspondent last_img read more

Good effort trying to be objective in this article. I would like to give a constructive feedback which could help in clearing things up.1. It is mentioned that planting trees in village common lands will have negative affects socially and ecologically. There is no need to even have to agree or disagree with it, because, you also mentioned the fact that Cauvery Calling aims to plant trees only in the private lands of the farmers. So, plantation in the common lands doesn’t come into the picture.2.I don’t see that the ecologists are totally against this project, but just they they have some concerns, mainly in terms of what species of trees will be planted. And because there was no direct communication between the ecologists and Isha Foundation, it was not possible for them to address the concerns. As you seem to have spoken with an Isha spokesperson, if you could connect the concerned parties, it would be great, because I see that the ecologists are genuinely interested in making sure things are done the right way.May we all come together and make things happen.Rare Amazon bush dogs caught on camera in BoliviaCarrot1 Feba very good iniciative to be fallowed by the ranchers all overSponsoredlast_img read more

Is Guyana overtaken by actors and comedians?

first_imgDear Editor,When you look at the Guyana landscape today the situation is pathetic and disgraceful to say the least. Items of foolishness and stupidity keep filling the air by the minute, that you have cause to ask yourself the question not, what will be the next event (that is already written up), but when would the next comedy take place.Take, for example, the Freddie Kissoon court matter, this comedy should have been struck off the court records long ago. But, this is Guyana where anything goes. After six years, a simple misdemeanour matter is still very much alive in a civil court, could you believe that?In fact, the matter is on to the point that the so-called victim is telling the court who to appoint to the bench to hear his ridiculous case. The story gets more hilarious when the alleged victim stated in clear-cut language that the two men held are “not the” individuals who threw faeces on him. Then why are we in court, why is there a court case? The answer to that question is, to have this pantomime show and to waste valuable time and money. If I may add the Government of the day who benefited from Freddie’s Foolishness may well have decided to get some more of his tantrums by re-opening a dead case to get some more amusement.Freddie, on the other hand, does not realise that this is the trick and has since kept up the pace thinking that he is still either “looking good” or “smelling good” from that “miasmic substance attack”. In either case, the pathetic situation that is Guyana continues. Such is the situation with Patrick Yarde and his begging bowl buddies in the GPSU. Do they honestly think that this Government was in any way serious when it promised them a 20 per cent increase for public servants? Far from it! Like Mr Rohee cogently puts it “meat for the boys and bone for the workers”. There is no PNC-led Administration past or present that has in any way – shape or form – been sympathetic or helpful to the workers. I urge my readers to review historical records and you will see those undemocratic and draconian stances taken by the PNC regime. The PNC-led Administrations take away from workers rather than give to them, and no one, I repeat, no one in the GPSU or otherwise can do anything about it.To think of it, Patrick Yarde and his comedian friends were very militant and aggressive during the time of the last Administration, making threats and carrying them out with strikes and other subversive acts, where is that militancy now? Has the Union lost its militancy? Seems that their militancy is for certain Governments and not others, sad situation indeed. Did I hear him say pay the public servants from the hidden accounts? Yes, I am absolutely sure that is what Yarde said, but were there hidden accounts in the first place? But aren’t these the same accounts the now Government, accompanied by their cheerleader union friends in the GPSU, said were stolen by the last Administration in one massive corruption scheme? How come these accounts are there now? Questions, and more questions in the Guyana Comedy show that is current. I must hasten to a close, but I would end on a sarcastic note just the way I’ve started “and they lived happily ever after”. Cheers to the “good life Guyana.”Sincerely,Neil Adamslast_img read more

The consequences of delay in hearing the elections petition

first_img– Delay and Silence has effectively sanctioned post electoral violence at the next electionBy Charles S. RamsonIn a few months, it will be almost two years without even a hearing of the election petition filed in Supreme Court of Judicature while in contrast, for example, Trinidad and Tobago has not only had a hearing but a ruling with a written decision and an Appeal filed and the dismissal of that Appeal by their Court of Appeal. The excessive delay in Guyana has damaged seriously the credibility and legitimacy of the judicial process as a non-violent means of settling election disputes.Charles s ramson jrThe consequences of this damaged process is extremely grave indeed. Disputes are inevitable in life and a non-violent means of solving those disputes is absolutely critical to our civilization. Courts have been the universal institutional creature specifically created, accessed, and applied for that very purpose – a non-violent means of dispute resolution. But, essential to its operation is the pillar of credibility, i.e. people believing that this institution will yield a result which is both impartial and expeditious.The excessive delay in hearing the election petition has the consequence that should there be another dispute arising out of a future election the people and its leaders will be less willing to initiate the judicial (non-violent) process resorting instead to the visceral mob response of taking to the streets in a violent expression of discontent.The likelihood of such is increased when one considers the historical fact that the only time we have never had post-election disturbances and/or riots post-1991 was when the APNU-AFC were declared the government by GECOM in May, 2015.Equally grave, however, is the silence of the NGOs, the political activists, political parties (excluding the PPP but including those of the parties in the coalition government), and the international community representatives. Why? This silence has effectively sanctioned post-election violence after the next election regardless of which side wins as the people have been imbued with the feeling that not only has the judicial (non-violent) option effectively been rendered otiose by virtue of excessive delay, but the representatives are not voicing their concern over this delay so as to put pressure on the judicial powers to expedite the hearing.In particular, the ubiquitous international representatives who made it their mission to be present and to issue statements and directives during and immediately after the May 2015 election such as “take your seat in parliament…” or strong statements to stop publicly complaining and have the claim of a fraudulent result heard in court have gone mute on the issue of the excessive delay quite possibly without appreciating the grave potential consequence of their silence.This delay along with the an un-concomitant silence should worry all Guyanese and all interested in the welfare of the Guyana especially now that Guyana is on the verge of being a significant oil and gas producer in the world. Global events in the last few years such as the Arab spring and post-election protests in the USA have shown what an angry mob can do to a country and how difficult it can be to control or predict outcomes.So any unrest and political destabilization in Guyana can destroy investment (both foreign and local) and investor confidence but also disrupt future oil supply to the world. “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter” Martin Luther King Jr.last_img read more

first_imgTHE BRITISH investigators who brought crooked criminal Francois de Dietrich to justice are appealing for conned victims to come forward.The Financial Services Authority in the UK has issued a public statement requesting investors to come forward. Donegaldaily understands that this is now the only way people who did give him cash will get their money back.In the statement, the FSA said: “We would like investors who had dealings with Francois de Dietrich or ETIC Solutions Ltd to contact us to provide details of their transactions.“This comes after we obtained a court order freezing their assets and requiring de Dietrich to provide certain information, which he has failed to comply with.“We obtained an order from the High Court in Northern Ireland against de Dietrich and ETIC Solutions Ltd (ETIC) on 27 October 2010, restraining any potential unauthorised activity and freezing ETIC’s and de Dietrich’s assets up to the value of £20.2m. “On 28 January 2011, de Dietrich was sentenced to 18 months imprisonment for contempt of court after he failed to disclose the whereabouts of his overseas assets as required by the terms of the High Court order, or respond to our requests for further information.”The statement went on: “Both de Dietrich and ETIC are believed to have been behind an unauthorised investment scheme.“The court order was taken out to preserve the funds and other assets held by de Dietrich and/or ETIC until the court decides whether he has broken the law. The court will also decide how much money, if any, should be returned to investors and other creditors.“Meanwhile, we are continuing our investigation into the activities of de Dietrich and ETIC.”The FSA also provided some answers to investors on whether or not they will get their money backOn this issue, the organisation said: “With the court orders in place, de Dietrich and ETIC may not accept money from, or pay money to, any person as part of the ETIC business. This includes a restriction on paying out funds to investors. “If you paid money to de Dietrich and/or ETIC and they did not have our authorisation to offer financial services, you will not be able to take a complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service or have access to the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.”The statement went on: “We need to identify all investors, so if you have not had contact with us about this matter you should call our Contact Centre on 00 44 845 606 1234 or email It will help us with this case if you provide your full name, a phone number, postal and email addresses.“Be aware that we are subject to strict statutory obligations of confidentiality, which mean we can only provide certain information to third parties. However, we will provide further updates on this case as soon as possible.”De Dietrich ran a dodgy get-rich-quick scheme – taking millions of euro from 200 investors in Donegal.
