Letters to the Editor for Tuesday, August 13

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionDems will deprive us of our freedomsWhen I was young, I was inspired by the words in the Declaration of Independence that proclaimed “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” That proclamation is different now, at least for the present-day Democrats in governments across the land. They advocate “abortion, dependency and the pursuit of political power.”  If you support abortion, are not worried about dependency and if you don’t mind losing many of your freedoms to the government, then be sure to vote for Democrats in 2020.Richard ColyerSchoharieSomeone rein in Trump’s obsessionsHow ironic that President rump is able to generate some patriotism so late in life after no such display 50 years ago, as shown on his bone spurs deferment.Some freshmen congresswomen, aka, The Squad, have stoked the patriotic president’s ire. He wished they return to their countries of origin: Massachusetts, New York and Michigan. Three of The Squad are originally from here. Trump’s Squad squawking is the same old venomous squawk, different day. His obsessive desire to malign and denigrate these freshmen representatives could be construed as a kind of perseveration associated with some kind of disorder or one with diminished capacity. This could be a very worrisome affliction that may warrant a professional evaluation. His obsessive “spew du jour” is toxic and divisive. Speaker Pelosi, Rep. Cummings, Rev. Sharpton and others are in his revengeful, unstable cross-hairs. A professional evaluation seems justified to assess if he is fit to be the president or is he a misfit?His Twitter assaults have become a repugnant read for this independent. Trump certainly qualifies as a man in need of supervision. Is anyone left in the White House to whom he will listen? Time for problem-solving, not making more.John CoffenbergDelansonBDS discriminatory;  condemnation validMatt Oill’s August 4 letter (“BDS ban violates right to free speech”) claims that the recent House approval of a bill condemning the BDS (boycott, divest, sanction) movement is an attack on free speech. The Gazette title refers to a “BDS ban.” Both are incorrect. People who want to engage in boycott actions against Israel are free to do so. The House bill simply, and correctly, identifies BDS as a movement that “promotes principles of collective guilt, mass punishment and group isolation, which are destructive of prospects for progress towards peace.” It was passed by a 398-17 vote, a rare and welcome bit of bipartisanship.Oill asserts that BDS doesn’t seek to “delegitimize Israel.” But that’s exactly the core mission of BDS. In 2013, Omar Barghouti, the BDS founder, said: “Most definitely we oppose a Jewish state in any part of Palestine.”Oill also believes that BDS does not “target the Jewish faith.” But in fact, BDS denies that the Jewish people have any historic claim to the land of Israel. What does it tell you about a movement that it claims there weren’t any Jews in ancient Israel? It’s worse than weird, no?BDS leaders and proponents engage in age-old anti-Jewish bigotry, like claims that Jews secretly control the world and care only about money. BDS receives funding and other support from organizations tied to known terrorist groups, most notably Hamas.Many well-meaning Americans want to believe BDS is a nonviolent rights campaign. But wishing doesn’t make it so. Jessica Hornik EvansAlplausMore from The Daily Gazette:Foss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesGov.

Needed team cohesion comes via traditional, unexpected avenues for SU men’s soccer

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on September 15, 2010 at 12:00 pm L.J. Papaleo’s teammates decided that of all the characters from The Lord of the Rings, he was one of the big trees, perhaps because of his 6-foot-2 frame. Brett Jankouskas took the liberty of designating himself Legolas, due to his desire to portray Orlando Bloom’s heroic character. Each of the other players watching The Lord of the Rings during the soccer team’s weekend away game at the Mayor’s Cup was also given a character. The sudden foray into The Lord of Rings is merely a blip on the screen for this young team in its first season under head coach Ian McIntyre as it tries to mesh. The movie won’t provide any wins. The character assignments won’t lead to any losses. But the characters assigned, based on each player’s personality and role on the team, were a small and unique part in bringing Syracuse’s chemistry together just that much more. Even if it was on a night when the players were stuck in a hotel in Oneonta, N.Y. ‘There are no distractions,’ senior midfielder Geoff Lytle said. ‘You spend the whole time together. I don’t know if you’d call it activities, but you do stuff together, eat together all the time, get to know your teammates.’AdvertisementThis is placeholder text The bonding is particularly important given the team has only 10 returning players. It is a must. The Orange hopes this strengthened sense of team will help in its game against American Saturday. The Eagles will be among the tougher teams SU will face this season. Its record of 2-2 perhaps does not do American justice. Its first loss came against George Mason, a team receiving votes towards a national ranking, and its second came against No. 5 Monmouth. ‘There’s a reason we set up some of these teams, which is to replicate some of our Big East schedule,’ McIntyre said. ‘American’s a good team. They’ve got some good players. They play a good brand of attacking soccer. It’s going to be a very difficult game on the road.’ Coming off a weekend away, however, SU is better equipped to face its next opponent. Assistant coach Jukka Masalin was in charge of room assignments for SU’s stay in Oneonta. The players did not know who they would be rooming with until they arrived at the hotel. Assignments were mostly random. Lytle said injured players were relegated to the floor because they were not playing, and some players slept on couches. Floor or couch, the movies ensued. In spite of some obscure sleeping arrangements, the team has also passed another milestone: its first win. The victory came last Friday against Northeastern on a free kick in overtime by junior midfielder Nick Roydhouse. McIntyre described the locker room after the game as ‘buzzing with excitement.’ Despite losing 2-0 to Columbia on Sunday, the effects of the team coming together have already been manifested on the field. Players are getting to know each other’s playing styles better as they spend more time together off the field. ‘I know now that Federico [Agreda] wants the ball to his feet and Fredrik [Forsman] wants the ball to space,’ Papaleo said. The fluidity of play on the field starts with the eradicating problems off the field. Last year’s team suffered a lot from intra-squad conflict. This year, however, Papaleo said the team is less cliquey and feels more like one unit. And Lytle said not only does this unity allow players to find each other better on the field, but it also makes practices better. ‘You don’t want problems to get in the way of team chemistry,’ he said. ‘If someone has problems with a certain player, that really affects training, that really affects chemistry on the field.’ Away games in general give the team an opportunity to bond. On the trip to Adelphi, the team followed a pep talk by McIntyre with a viewing of Titanic. The trip to American will provide the Orange with a seven-hour bus ride to become better acquainted. More of a traditional form of bonding comes with that bus ride. This team is not limited to Academy Award-winning movies. Lytle said that players do not have assigned seats on the bus but rather look for the seats in the best location. The random distribution allows players to mix, whether they are transfers, freshmen or returning players. The characters can mingle. ‘It’s nice to go away,’ McIntyre said. ‘Now, having said that, we’d like a home game.’ [email protected]center_img Commentslast_img read more

Cowboys vs. Eagles final score: Philadelphia takes control of NFC East

first_imgMORE: Watch select NFL games live with fuboTV (7-day free trial)Quarterback Carson Wentz was stellar for Philadelphia, going 31-for-40 passing for 319 yards and a touchdown, leading an offense that didn’t commit a turnover. The Eagles scored on each of their first two possessions, taking a 10-0 lead to the second quarter.Dallas kicked a pair of field goals to cut the deficit to four points at halftime, but couldn’t pull any closer. A touchdown just before the end of the third period put the Eagles up 17-6, and the Cowboys offense never got it together.VIDEO: Cowboys-Eagles highlightsAfter not throwing this week due to an AC joint injury, Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott was a bit erratic Sunday. There were plenty of missed open receivers in his 25-for-44, 265-yard line.For the Cowboys to avoid total disaster and sneak into the playoffs, they will need to beat the Redskins and have New York upset Philadelphia next week. If not, it seems the Jason Garrett era in Dallas will come to an unceremonious end.Sporting News tracked live scoring updates and highlights from the NFC East showdown in Week 16 below.(All times Eastern.)Cowboys vs. Eagles final score Q1Q2Q3Q4FCowboys06039Eagles1007017Cowboys vs. Eagles live updates, highlightsFinal: Eagles 17, Cowboys 97:30 p.m.: Wentz hits Goeddert for a first down, and that should do it.

Philadelphia throws incompletions on third-and-1 and fourth-and-1. A bit questionable, perhaps. Dallas takes over on its own 33.5:09 p.m.: FIELD GOAL, Cowboys. Dak Prescott narrowly avoids a sack on third-and-10, then scrambles and the Eagles avoid surrendering a first down. A field goal makes sure Michael Gallup’s 41-yard reception earlier in the drive doesn’t go to waste. Eagles 10, Cowboys 3. Philadelphia took control of the NFC East on Sunday evening, avenging a blowout loss to Dallas earlier in the year by not allowing a touchdown in a 17-9 win over the Cowboys in Week 16.If the Eagles beat the Giants to close the regular season next week, they will win the division, and Dallas’ season, which began with Super Bowl aspirations, will end missing the playoffs entirely. End first quarter: Eagles 10, Cowboys 04:46 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN, Eagles. The Philadelphia defense got off the field, and the offense marches down the field again . This time, it ends with a 6-yard pass from Wentz to Dallas Goedert. Big start for the Eagles and Wentz, who is 9-for-11. Eagles 10, Cowboys 0.. @cj_wentz over the top to @goedert33 ! @Eagles take a 10-0 lead. #FlyEaglesFly📺: #DALvsPHI on FOX📱: NFL app // Yahoo Sports appWatch free on mobile: https://t.co/csMF3GLW6Z pic.twitter.com/jLLU3SXwcz— NFL (@NFL) December 22, 20194:35 p.m.: FIELD GOAL, Eagles.

Former Mayor Callman Dies at 95

first_imgBy Rick MalwitzCharles S. CallmanRUMSON – Charles S. Callman, who served the borough of Rumson in scores of capacities, including two stints as mayor, died Monday, July 30, at his home at the age of 95, with his family at his side.“The borough was his hobby,’’ said his wife Lee Callman. “He just had this tremendous love for everything Rumson.“He loved the people, especially those whose families lived here forever and ever – the police, the firemen, the first aid squad, the people who’d lived here their whole lives,’’ Lee Callman said.In 1998, though he tried to talk the borough council out of it, the municipal courtroom at borough hall was named the Charles S. Callman Hall.However, he was more familiar to many as Chillie Callman, a nickname he got as a boy, when a classmate had trouble pronouncing Charles.Callman was born in 1917 in Bronxville, N.Y. His father, who earned degrees from Dartmouth College and MIT, taught him the value of education. Callman graduated from The Lawrenceville School and Princeton University.During World War II he worked at a munitions factory on Long Island, and when he and his wife moved to their present home in 1986, he survived a scare that Lee Callman is able to laugh at today.He discovered a suspicious shell in his belongings and called the police. Soon police and firemen arrived at his home and the shell was taken gingerly from the garage by workers in hazmat gear. “It was a dud,’’ Lee Callman said.Alex Williamson, a television producer in Los Angeles, remembered the man he called “Uncle Chillie” as someone who “loved a joke and had a mind like a steel trap.”Williamson said his father, the late George Wiliamson, considered Callman his mentor and best friend. The two were Princeton graduates and both worked in the financial industry.Some of Williamson’s fondest childhood memories were of Callman giving him a ride in one of his red English convertible sports cars. “I’m riding in the car with the man who’s the mayor and my godfather, andI feel so important.”Alex’s mother, Gay Williamson, recalled how she and her husband George often traveled with the Callmans. “I can still picture Chillie and George in a sailboat in the Barbados making up limericks,” she said.Callman retired as a vice president of Kidder, Peabody & Co. of New York. He established his first residence in Rumson in 1947, and helped shape not only the borough but the surrounding area.He was an original member of the Two Rivers Council of Mayors that included mayors from Rumson and 11 surrounding communities.Callman was elected to the council in 1958 and held the office until becoming mayor in 1962. He served his first term as mayor until 1967 and then served as chairman of the Rumson Planning Board from 1968 until Jan. 1, 1974, when he was again asked to rejoin the governing body as a councilman. He later served as mayor from 1989 until his retirement from public life in 2003.During his second tenure as mayor, Ann Rossbach served on the Rumson-Fair Haven Board of Education.“Whenever we, the board, and the mayor met, he was always asking questions about the students,” Rossbach said. “He always wanted to know about any issue, ‘Is it good for the children?’ He always wanted to know how an issue affected the taxpayer, but he was most interested in the students.”Lee Callman likened her husband’s style in public life to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. She said that he had the same blunt and honest way of telling the truth.In September 2003, the borough council adopted a “Resolution of Appreciation” to honor Callman. The resolution said his “record of public service speaks for itself. He is the most dedicated, extraordinary volunteer public servant in the history of the Borough. Chillie Callman’s dedication and love for Rumson and its residents are unequalled; his integrity, courageous leadership, intelligence, compassion and sense of humor have earned him the great respect and affection of his colleagues, the Borough employees, the volunteer Fire Department and First Aid Squad and the residents of Rumson…”Callman was a past president of the Forrestdale School PTA and an elder of the First Presbyterian Church of Rumson. He was a member of the Rumson Zoning Board of Adjustment and a longtime member of the Borough Planning Board. He was the first chairman of the Rumson Conservation Commission and was also the chairman of the Municipal Public Service Coordinating Committee, which was formed years ago to represent Rumson and seven neighboring towns in public utility and transportation matters. Callman was also the first Rumson representative to the Navesink River Munici­pality Committee, which was created to safeguard the Navesink and Shrewsbury rivers.Callman was very proud to be an honorary member of the Rumson First Aid Squad and the Oceanic Hook and Ladder Fire Company.He was a member of the Rumson Country Club, the Sea Bright Beach Club, the Sea Bright Lawn Tennis & Cricket Club, The Root Beer and Checkers Club, The Fat Men, the YMCA in Red Bank, the Rumson Ramp Club and the Pistol Club.Chillie Callman was predeceased by his parents and his first wife Portia.In addition to his wife, Callman is survived by his children, Patricia and Peter Morse, Charles S. “Chuck” Callman, Jr., Portia “Midge” Murphy, Amy Johnson Swanson and husband John, Elizabeth Ann “E.A.” Buck and husband Michael Norman, Raymond F. Johnson, III; and eight grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.Visitation will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. Monday, Aug. 13, at the Thompson Memorial Home, 310 Broad St. Red Bank. The funeral service will be 11 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 14, a.m. at St. George’s-by-the-River Church, 7 Lincoln Ave., Rumson. Burial will be private.In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial donations be made in his memory to the First Presby­terian Church of Rumson, the Rumson EMS or to St. George’s-by-the-River Church.last_img read more
