Deliverance Baptist Church contributes to relief efforts

first_img Tweet FaithLifestyleLocalNews Deliverance Baptist Church contributes to relief efforts by: Dominica Vibes News – September 4, 2015 Sharing is caring! 983 Views   no discussions Sharecenter_img Share Share The Deliverance Baptist Church, in collaboration with partner churches in the United States, delivered one hundred and ten (110) care relief packages to the villages of Coulibistrie and Colihaut on Thursday 3 September 2015. The packages, which contained dried goods and water, were donated in an effort to bring relief to those affected by Tropical Storm Erika. In addition, over fifty (50) pairs of shoes were donated.Pastor of the Deliverance Baptist Church, David Serrant informed Dominica Vibes that the church has been trying to alleviate the stress of the situation following the passing of the storm. “On Sunday the 30th of August we delivered a number of packages to the Roseau Primary School where the people from Bath Estate who were affected are now being housed and we were able to present them with a number of food packages”.Serrant further stated that the food items which were delivered to Coulibistrie and Colihaut were all purchased locally and in the coming days the church will reach out to more communities to be a blessing to them.“We see this as an opportunity to express the love of Jesus especially to those who are in need at this moment”.Assistant Pastor Isidore Douglas presenting a package to an elder of the Coulibistrie ChurchHe informed that while the first part of the donations were funded by the church, majority of the funds are coming from friends in the United States who saw the devastation of the storm.Pastor Serrant said the Church, which has been instrumental in sourcing international donors and churches to help construct homes for those in need; this is the perfect opportunity to turn this into a long term project. “We are foreseeing a number of problems. Many of the persons who lost their homes do not have land any more and I am not sure if the authorities are going to allow them to build where they were,” he noted. “There is going to be quite a bit of relocation taking place, however we want to position ourselves that when we get the go ahead and people are able, that we will be there to assist as we have been doing in the past,” the Pastor explained.He said the Church sympathizes and empathizes with those who suffered lost to family members, loved ones and property. “There is fear and uncertainty of the future residing in the hearts of many persons. I want to offer a word of hope to them by saying all is not lost, out of the ashes they can rise and God is able to make something better out of them,” Pastor Dave encouraged.Fatal error: Theme at https://www.dominicavibes.dm/wp-content/plugins/image-gallery-reloaded/themes/classic/galleria.theme.min.js could not load, check theme path.– / 26last_img read more

900 AND COUNTING: Boeheim becomes 3rd coach in Division-I history to reach milestone win total with Syracuse’s win over Detroit

first_imgHere was Jim Boeheim, striding out of the tunnel, onto the court bearing his name for his 1,204th game as Syracuse head coach: his 900th win. At 68 years old, dressed for the occasion in his blue shirt and orange tie, the Carrier Dome crowd praised his every move with a magnificent roar.Appearing a few steps behind Boeheim came Dave Bing, the Syracuse legend, former teammate of Boeheim and mayor of Detroit. As college roommates, the pair spent countless nights in their room, dreaming and discussing their career prospects.On a historic, momentous evening, Bing’s presence was both heartwarming and nerve-wracking for the head coach who never envisioned this future as a lanky freshman walk-on in 1962.“When I went into the locker room he was already sitting there,” Boeheim said. “So that was the first time I’ve been nervous, in I couldn’t tell you. In a long time, anyway.”As Syracuse leapt out to a 19-point halftime lead, those nerves subsided a little, but Detroit stormed back late, nearly spoiling a night of celebration. Michael Carter-Williams made 5-of-6 free throws in the last 30 seconds to preserve a 72-68 victory for the No. 3 Orange (10-0).AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse’s 10th win of the season gave Boeheim his 900th all time, placing him alongside Mike Krzyzewski and Bob Knight as the only coaches in Division-I men’s basketball history to cross the 900-win threshold, beginning a celebration of the man who built Syracuse’s program into its current form.The game, despite how tight it got late, was not the main event for the 17,902 in the Carrier Dome. Syracuse legends like Bing and Roosevelt Bouie did not just show up for a random nonconference game in December. This night was about Boeheim.Bing spoke with Boeheim before the game, and they talked about their history and friendship. Bing traveled to Syracuse unbeknownst to Boeheim.“This was his 900th win and there’s no way, regardless of what’s going on in Detroit, that I wouldn’t be here,” Bing said.Fans were handed miniature, cardboard Boeheim heads on popsicle sticks with nine minutes remaining that read “Coach Jim Boeheim 900 wins” on the back. Most waved them back and forth at the final buzzer.Boeheim was presented with a commemorative plaque that held a Boeheim jersey with the No. 900, similar to the one he was presented a little more than three years ago after his 800th win, and was honored on the court alongside his family and team.Then the montage played on the Carrier Dome screens, featuring images from throughout Boeheim’s 36 seasons as head coach. Legendary coaches Krzyzewski and Rick Pitino offered congratulations, along with media notables like Mike Tirico and Dick Vitale.Boeheim coached and spoke as if the number did not mean much to him. It was just another game, another win. He coached with the same demeanor.The same actions: Stern face, hands on his hips, tucked inside his jacket. The only difference was the special attendees and postgame celebration.“Whether I’ve won 800 or 900 does not matter,” Boeheim said. “Whether I’ve won 800 or 700, the reason I won 900 is I stayed longer than I ever thought I would have.”Syracuse guard Brandon Triche grew up in nearby Jamesville. His uncle, Howard Triche, played for Boeheim. In watching the montage and reflecting on the moment, Triche said Boeheim means a lot to the community and many in the area look up to him.Of all Boeheim’s accomplishments that displayed on the video screen, Triche picked one out as most memorable.“The 2003 one, everybody going crazy, winning the national championship,” he said. “What was going through my head was, ‘Will I be able to get that chance, to hold up a national championship trophy?’”After the game, Boeheim reiterated that 900 wins, while a large number, is not meaningful to him. It just means he has been coaching for a very long time. He deflected credit for any of his wins to his players and the Syracuse community all evening.“I’ve had tremendous players for a long time and that’s how you win these things,” he said. “That’s how you win games, and you coach a long time you’re going to win a lot of games. It’s as simple as that. If you’re in a good place and I’m in a good place, I’ve always felt I was.”James Southerland, who led SU with 22 points Monday, watched the montage and celebration unfold next to assistant coach Adrian Autry. Southerland was a freshman when Boeheim won his 800th game, and asked his coach, “Where were you?” Autry came back by telling Southerland he was there for Boeheim’s 350th.From Bing, to Autry, to Southerland and the current Orange, Boeheim’s legend has lasted longer than either the coach or his college roommate imagined.“There were so many nights when we were roommates that we just sat up and talked and dreamed and had visions,” Bing said, “and I don’t think either of us ever thought that he was going to be the coach and win 900 games.“But here we are.” Comments Published on December 18, 2012 at 3:00 am Contact Mark: [email protected] | @mark_cooperjr Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Dougherty: Christmas mocks Wooden Award watch list with ACC dominance

first_imgRakeem Christmas blocks out all of the outside stuff.The Associated Press Top 25 polls, weekly awards, power rankings, watch lists. That stuff.But as Christmas dominated Clemson in a 13-point Syracuse loss on Saturday, it was hard for the rest of us not to think about the John R. Wooden Award midseason watch list that was released last Wednesday.Twenty-five players were named candidates for college basketball’s most prestigious individual award. Christmas wasn’t one of them — his 18.3 points and nine rebounds per game weren’t quite good enough.“The team isn’t rated. If we were in the Top 10 he’d be getting a lot of attention,” head coach Jim Boeheim said after SU beat Wake Forest on Tuesday, the night before the watch list was released.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“It’s that simple, the same thing every year.”Yet it’s not like Christmas and the Orange (13-5, 4-1 Atlantic Coast) are playing a mid-major schedule. The ACC is arguably the nation’s best conference and Christmas is getting harder and harder to ignore. And while a mid-year watch list doesn’t earn any team or player an edge on the scoreboard or in the standings, the omission of Christmas — who was named the ACC’s player of the week Monday for the second time this season — from the Wooden watch list is ludicrous.He is the only player who ranks in the ACC’s top five in scoring, rebounding, blocked shots and field-goal percentage. And that’s after averaging 5.8 points per game last year.“What I told our guys prior to the game, ‘I have a hard time believing that anybody in this league has improved more in the last year and a half than (Christmas) has,’” Virginia Tech head coach Buzz Williams said of his team’s game against SU on Jan. 3.To accurately assess whether Christmas should be on the Wooden watch list, let’s take a look at his competition.There are 16 guards and nine forwards on the Wooden watch list.Of the 25 players, only six are averaging more points per game than Christmas through Sunday. Of the nine forwards, only Duke’s Jahlil Okafor and Arkansas’ Bobby Portis are averaging more — and by just fractions of a point.Christmas separates himself even more with his rebounding, as just three players of the 25 are averaging more per game. That’s Louisville’s Montrezl Harrell (9.2), Okafor (9.3) and LSU’s Jordan Mickey (10.4). Many perceive Okafor to be the midseason frontrunner yet his numbers are nearly identical to Christmas’ despite playing three fewer minutes per game.That’s not to say that Christmas and Okafor are one in the same. But it is to say that it’s hard to imagine a group to be sane if it doesn’t consider Christmas as one of the 24 players that follow the Duke freshman.“He’s probably the best center in the country, that’s all I can say,” Boeheim said after SU’s loss to Clemson. “… They’re doubling him every time, they’re fouling him on every play and he just keeps playing unbelievable.”Boeheim’s assessment of Christmas’ national attention is spot on. Syracuse is scratching for Top 25 votes and hasn’t cracked the poll since the second week of the season. Only five players on the watch list were on four-loss teams when the candidates were released.Team success is how No. 1 Kentucky’s (17-0) Willie Cauley-Stein cracked the 25 while averaging 9.6 points and 6.7 rebounds; how No. 2 Virginia’s (17-0) Justin Anderson did with 14.5 and 4.4 rebounds per contest; and how No. 9 Iowa State’s (13-3) Georges Niang did with 14.9 points and 5.4 rebounds.But the Orange’s ongoing struggle, as a team that has lost forwards Chris McCullough and DaJuan Coleman for the season and can’t find consistent secondary scoring options, only amplifies Christmas’ dominance.Against Clemson, Christmas was constantly double-teamed and scored the Orange’s first eight points on his way to scoring a game-high 21 on 10-of-13 shooting. The rest of SU shot 2-for-15 from 3 and 11-for-44 from the field.During a season in which he has drawn the full attention of opposing defenses, Christmas has scored in single digits just once in 18 games and has six double-doubles. While there are other things that accentuate his overall performance — like how he has fouled out just twice and has been a rock in the middle of Boeheim’s zone — his raw numbers already set him far apart.Christmas isn’t dominating because of his team’s mediocrity; he’s producing in spite of it. A final Wooden watch list will be released on March 7 and we’ll see if the experts can figure that out.Until then, SU’s next game — Tuesday at 7 p.m. against Boston College — is always Christmas’ next chance to show that he belongs in the thick of the national conversation.Not on the outside looking in.“He’s not in the Top 25 in the country,” Boeheim said sarcastically after the Clemson game. “He can’t be that good.” Comments Published on January 20, 2015 at 12:20 am Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

St. Louis Cardinals stun Clayton Kershaw, Dodgers in Game 1 victory

first_imgA game that began with a home run, turned on a benches-clearing fracas, and turned again on an unprecedented meltdown by Clayton Kershaw, left the Dodgers speechless. Manager Don Mattingly didn’t address the players after the game.Veteran first baseman Adrian Gonzalez didn’t address Kershaw. That would come later, he said.“There’s no words you can use right now,” Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis said. “Who knows if they even want me to pitch at this point,” he replied.This wasn’t quite the same as the Cardinals’ 9-0 blowout over the Dodgers and Kershaw to end the 2013 National League Championship Series. Kershaw allowed seven runs in that game too, making him the first pitcher in history to allow seven or more earned runs in consecutive playoff starts.This time, the announced crowd of 54,265 couldn’t retreat from the edge of their seats until Trevor Rosenthal struck out Yasiel Puig with the potential tying run at third base, ending the game.It was Puig who sparked the Dodgers by absorbing a 90-mph sinker from Adam Wainwright in his left shoulder in the third inning. Within seconds, Gonzalez was yelling toward Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina from the Dodgers’ dugout. Both benches and bullpens emptied onto the field, and coaches from both sides strained to hold players back from the brink of ejection.Gonzalez said he had seen enough. “They probably talked before the game, ‘we’re going to pitch inside and if we hit him we hit him, but we’re not going to miss over the plate’,” Gonzalez said. “They’re going to say it’s not on purpose, but come on. It’s Wainwright. He knows where the ball’s going.”Mattingly said he heard Wainwright say “my bad” at one point after the skirmish. Molina told reporters that Wainwright had no command over his fastball all afternoon. The veteran right-hander allowed six runs while walking one batter in 4 1/3 innings. It was the first time in 298 career games — including the postseason — that Wainwright had allowed 11 hits and pitched fewer than five innings. No one was ejected. The melee ultimately added to the bad blood in a simmering rivalry.After the scene calmed down, Puig scored on a single by Hanley Ramirez. Carl Crawford’s ground-rule double into the right field pavilion seats scored Ramirez, giving the Dodgers their first lead at 2-1.RBI singles by Puig and Matt Kemp (3 for 5) extended the Dodgers’ lead to 4-1 in the fourth inning. A two-run home run by Ellis, who finished 4 for 5, gave the Dodgers a 6-1 lead in the fifth.That merely made the Dodgers’ late meltdown even more improbable.“You always feel like he’s going to get out of it, he’s going to rebound,” Mattingly said of Kershaw.The manager went to the mound after the Cardinals scored a pair to pull within 6-4, but decided to leave Kershaw in with the bases loaded to face rookie Oscar Tavares. Kershaw struck out Tavares swinging, but Matt Carpenter ended an eight-pitch at-bat with a bases-clearing double. That gave St. Louis the lead for good at 7-6. Holliday’s home run off Baez extended the lead to 10-6.A two-run home run by Gonzalez off former Dodgers reliever Randy Choate sparked the crowd and pulled the Dodgers within 10-8.The Dodgers used a single by Ellis, a double by Andre Ethier, and an RBI groundout by Dee Gordon to score a run off Rosenthal in the ninth inning.After the game, questions about the Cardinals stealing signs and Kershaw tipping his pitches out of the stretch floated through the clubhouse. The Dodgers swatted down the conspiracy theories as quickly as they came.“I think that’s discrediting their team,” Kershaw said. “It’s just a cop-out.”Certainly something could explain the inexplicable. Before Friday, the Dodgers were 67-0 when scoring at least four runs with Kershaw on the mound.“I’m maybe a little shocked,” Kemp said, “but this isn’t going to hold us back.” The St. Louis Cardinals scored six runs off Kershaw in the seventh inning, erasing a five-run deficit in an eventual 10-9 win in Game 1 of the National League Division Series at Dodger Stadium. A three-run home run by Matt Holliday against reliever Pedro Baez put an exclamation mark on the Cardinals’ rally and stood up as the game-winning hit.Kershaw, the probable National League Cy Young Award winner — and possible MVP — found the words to describe the game. They just didn’t sound like anything he said en route to winning 21 and losing three during the regular season.“I feel terrible,” Kershaw said.And if his manager asks him to pitch Game 4 of the series on three days’ rest?center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Sheepherders to Rock Blossom Cove for Artiepalooza

first_imgIn August 2014 the band played its first Artiepalooza and raised about $3,000 for David’s Dream & Believe Cancer Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides financial assistance and wellness services to New Jersey families impacted by a cancer diagnosis. “Never in our wildest dream did we think a boater would give up their boat to a band. But (Artie) said ‘Great! Let’s do it.’ And he meant it,” said Sheepherders guitarist Steve Warendorf, the organizer of Artiepalooza. “We lost Artie, but it’s important to us that we keep his memory alive and that’s what we try to do each summer.” “Artiepalooza is a wonderful way to honor a man and celebrate the life of a person who loved his friends, family and was passionate about the local waterways. And the event is done in a way that is respectful to marine life and our living shorelines,” Zipf said. The amount raised from Artiepalooza increased each summer and so did the number of spectators flocking to the event. At the last Artiepalooza in 2017, an estimated 250 or more vessels were on hand. Though Warendorf said he expects the event to continue to grow, there are no immediate plans to expand or move Artiepalooza to different or multiple locations. After the band got the boot, they were invited to Natsis’ boat for food and drinks that night, a meeting that sparked a great friendship and several performances on the back of Natsis’ boat that by summer’s end drew close to 70 vessels. MIDDLETOWN – A friend and husband gone too soon has spawned one of the Navesink River’s most treasured summertime traditions, due to return this Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. when the Moroccan Sheepherders bring their brand of rollicking rock ’n’ roll to Blossom Cove for Artiepalooza. For the fifth time in six years – last summer was interrupted by a rainstorm – the band will take to a seafaring stage on the second-story deck of a yacht and, from the stern, will play an eclectic collection of electrified cover tunes to a flotilla of local boaters and kayakers who attend the event. The event’s namesake is Artie Natsis, a boating enthusiast who, with his wife and Artiepalooza cofounder Feli, befriended the band after an unfortunate dismissal from a set of scheduled gigs in 2012. Zipf said the event is an example of fun passive boating, rather than the aggressive boating done by fast-moving recreational speed boats and jet skis sometimes seen slicing through the river systems. Aggressive boating can endanger wildlife, like terrapins and dolphin pods who visit the Navesink and Shrewsbury rivers during the warm weather seasons. They can also create wakes that erode shorelines. According to Warendorf, the Sheepherders were booked to play three shows at Ross’ Dockside Steak and Seafood House, but customers “were complaining that we brought too many people out to the show. It was getting too loud for them. So we were fired.” “He really showed no signs of it in the beginning, but that winter is when he got really sick,” Warendorf said. “At his wake we came up with the idea for (Artiepalooza).” However, Cindy Zipf, executive director of Clean Ocean Action, said she hopes the concept will continue to catch on with other recreational boaters. After getting to know the Natsis family better, Warendorf learned Artie was living with cancer. He died in April 2013. “It’s about doing everything in moderation and being respectful and mindful of where you’re having fun. Everyone needs to be mindful of their location on the water for the protection of themselves and the environment,” Zipf added.last_img read more
