Delray Beach Police seek help for annual toy drive

first_imgDelray Beach police say they’ve been collecting hundreds of toys to give to kids, now they’re scrambling to get enough toys in time for Christmas.The annual Christmas toy drive has turned into a sort of Christmas crisis for police.“Once you open it up, you’ll notice you’ll immediately smell mold in here,” police spokesperson Ted White said as he was about to walk inside a metal shipping container.“You can see the presence of a lot of moisture, a lot of mold,” White said.Police say hundreds of toys being stored in a metal shipping container at the police station appear to be ruined, contaminated with mold. The toys were going to be distributed to underprivileged children for Christmas. White says police were not aware until now that the shipping container had leaks.“This is devastating because a lot of these toys were going to help more than 2,200 children in the community,” he said.Mold is clearly visible on some of the boxes. Police say a few new bikes can be saved, but they estimate about 3/4 of the toys will have to be thrown out.The toys came from collection boxes at dozens of local restaurants and businesses. John Goldstein, a retired teacher and school principal who now lives in Delray Beach, says he gave toys to the police toy drive this year. “Luckily, my children never went with a Christmas without toys and I can’t even imagine what it’s like for any child to go through any holiday, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa without the joy of toys,” he said.Goldstein says given the situation with the mold and the toys, he’ll try to donate another toy. “I feel that all children should feel the wonder of the holidays,” he said.Police hope people will see this story and drop off toys at the police station or at the more than 60 businesses in Delray that have collection boxes.They plan to start distributing the toys next Thursday.Questions? Call Delray Beach Police at 561-243-7841.last_img read more

Ashwin’s Mankading to Dhoni’s rage: Controversies that headlined IPL 2019

first_imgThe 2019 Indian Premier League is almost over. 4 teams have sealed playoff berths after 56 league matches and there was some riveting cricket played by all 8 teams. However, several controversies headlined IPL 2019 and they garnered a lot of public scrutiny.Kings XI Punjab skipper R Ashwin created a huge controversy when he Mankaded Jos Buttler in a tense game against Rajasthan Royals. While the likes of Eoin Morgan, Dale Steyn and Shane Warne slammed Ashwin, others like Murali Karthik and Harsha Bhogle argued Ashwin was well within his rights.What came as a bigger shock to Indian cricket fans was MS Dhoni’s action in Jaipur. He stormed on to the ground to argue with the umpires. He was fined only 50 per cent of his match fee and Virender Sehwag later said the IPL had missed an opportunity to set an example by failing to impose a sterner punishment.Then the umpiring howlers continued to haunt the IPL. Poor no-ball calls, angry captains and frustrated players were a common sight throughout the season.With the group matches of the 2019 IPL over, we recap a few of the most talked-about controversies from the 2019 IPL:R ASHWIN STIRS UP A MANKADING CONTROVERSY Jos Buttler became the first-ever batsman to be Mankaded in IPL cricket ( Courtesy by BCCI)Ashwin mankads Buttler – inarguably, the most talked about issue in IPL 2019. As soon as Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) skipper pulled out of his delivery stride to flick the bails at the non-striker’s end against Rajasthan Royals (RR) on March 26, the world’s attention was diverted at the IPL.advertisementWhile Buttler was left fuming at his abrupt dismissal, the act left fans and experts divided on the issue with some calling it against the spirit of cricket while others arguing that there was nothing wrong with it as the laws allowed it. Whatever side of the debate you might find yourselves in, one thing was clear – you just can’t ignore the IPL.MS DHONI STORMS ONTO THE GROUND RR found themselves on the receiving end of another potboiler when Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain MS Dhoni stormed on to the field and an animated discussion ensued between him and the umpires regarding a ‘waist-high’ no-ball call that was declined by umpire Bruce Oxenford after initially being given by his partner Ulhas Gandhe.Dhoni’s behaviour came under severe criticism with many arguing that he had no business in invading the field and debating the on-field umpires’ decision. Dhoni even got away with a fine of 50% of his match fees and the incident reaffirmed Dhoni’s hallowed status in the pecking order of Indian cricket.SEE THE TIME, ANYONE? IT’S PAST MIDNIGHTOne of the distinctive features of IPL 2019 has been that of matches often finishing past midnight and if you have a super over scenario then it went much more beyond that. This prompted many, including players themselves, to advocate for stricter timings and early finishes.RCB stalwart AB de Villiers famously suggested that ‘the IPL needs to get into the gym’. The outrage had the desired effect as the timings of IPL playoffs beginning May 7 were advanced by 30 minutes to ensure matches don’t stretch past midnight.WHEN KOHLI, DHAWAN MOCKED ASHWINIf one thought that Ashwin’s Mankading row would die down soon, they couldn’t be farther from the truth. Ashwin found his match in Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli who did not think twice before giving Ashwin a fiery expletive-laden send-off when the two sides met in Bengaluru on April 24. He also mocked Ashwin’s Makading act with gestures.This was also in response to Ashwin’s charged-up celebration earlier after Kohli fell to Mohammed Shami got the big fish for just 13, Ashwin was pumped up as he celebrated Kohli’s wicket with a lot of aggression.Just 3 days ago, when KXIP met Delhi Capitals, Shikhar Dhawan also mocked the off-spinner when he pulled out of his delivery stride with the DC opener at the non-striker’s end. Dhawan first bent on one knee and then did a bizarre dance while Ashwin bowled the next ball. Clearly, Mankad was still making the headlines, one month into the IPL 2019.VIRAT’s TRYST WITH NO-BALLS THAT WEREN’T. OR WERE! AP PhotoAs if RCB’s poor run in the ongoing season of IPL wasn’t enough, an umpiring error in failing to spot a no-ball from Lasith Malinga on the last ball with RCB needing 7 runs to win, brought Kohli to his wits end.After the match ended, Kohli blasted the umpiring by calling it ‘ridiculous’ while adding that ‘we are not playing club cricket’ and ‘they (umpires) should have been more sharp and careful out there’.advertisementIn RCB’s last match of this season, Kohli found himself at the receiving end of another wrong no-ball call when Umesh Yadav’s already expensive last over was made worse by the ensuing free-hit. Though this time, Kohli didn’t explode the same way perhaps because his team was already out of contention for the playoffs.ANDERSON ‘SHREDS’ ASHWIN. WELL…Okay, I know I’m flirting with overkill here but the impact of Mankading wasn’t limited to just India or Indian players as cricketers – both past and present – all over the world had something to say about the incident. England pace spearhead James Anderson went one step ahead when he shredded a picture of Ashwin in response to the incident.Also See:last_img read more
