Sacco Foundation and the Township of North Bergen, held their annual back-to-school drive in August, distributing thousands of school supplies to local children on Wednesday, Aug. 29.The giveaway is held each year shortly before school starts, with residents invited to the Recreation Center to pick up whatever they need for the school year.Kids got to choose their own backpack from among hundreds of options, and fill it themselves with pens, pencils, markers, folders, notebooks, glue, erasers, sharpeners, scissors, rulers, and more.They picked up new uniforms, or traded in their old ones.Mayor Nicholas Sacco and Park and Public Property Commissioner Hugo Cabrera were on hand to open the doors to the Rec Center and meet with the hundreds of residents who lined up throughout the day to prepare for the school year.Funded largely by grants and donations, the event received contributions this year from CrossCountry Mortgage, Eye Contact Vision Center, Women of the Moose, and other local businesses and organizations.Present at the giveaway to provide free children’s book and other items were volunteers from the Frank A. Pinto Foundation. Sanitas Medical Center was also on site, providing free blood pressure and glucose checks and distributing free rulers, mouse pads, hand sanitizers, and bags.NB C.A.R.E.S. was prepared to provide school supplies to more than 400 families this year. Anything left over at the end of the event was presented to the schools for distribution.County contract with ICE to be terminated – eventuallyAlthough the details have to be worked out, an agreement between the Hudson County Board of Freeholders and religious leaders who are suing them should lead to the termination of the county contract to house immigration detainees at the county jail and end the lawsuit challenging the validity of the contract. The approximately 800 detainees are there while waiting hearings on alleged immigration issues. There are also approximately 400 criminals in the jail.Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise announced on Friday that the county would initiate a “Path to Exit” from its contract to hold detainees for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE).The detainees are awaiting hearings on alleged violations of federal immigration laws.Religious leaders from Jersey City and elsewhere filed suit against the county in Superior Court in late August, claiming the county violated the state’s Open Public Meetings Act when the freeholders voted in July to approve the 10-year contract.The freeholders had originally announced they would delay the vote, then suddenly reversed themselves and put the measure up for a vote without allowing members of the public and immigrant advocates time to comment. Many activists demanded that the county use an opt-out clause to void the contract.The “Path to Exit” would have the freeholders void the 10-year then vote on a new contract that would phase out the detainee program over a two-year period, with the goal of having no detainees housed in the jail by the end of 2020.The jail was built to house about 2,000 criminal inmates. Bail reform and other programs have caused the criminal jail population to fall to about 400. The contract with ICE, at $120 per day per detainee, had partly been used to offset the reduction of prisoners at the jail because the facility remains fully staffed. The deal was expected to provide an estimated $35 million a year to the county.Correctional officers unions and others have raised concerns about doing away with the ICE contract because it would likely lead to significant layoffs.To compensate for the loss of the detainee population, the county will seek to make agreements with other entities, such as the New Jersey Department of Corrections to house state prisoners in Hudson County instead of immigrants. By seeking agreements to house other prisoners, the county might be able to maintain the current work force.Freeholder Bill O’Dea warned the county that it may have to reduce staff in the future anyway, because there is a trend away from incarceration and towards providing other means of detaining prisoners such as house arrest and electronic monitoring.The freeholders anticipate voting on a resolution at their Sept. 13 meeting that would prohibit ICE detainees to be housed at the jail beyond 2020 “without freeholder consent.”The plan will also direct additional funds from the contract to be spent on services for ICE detainees during this transition period. Presently, free Legal Services are provided to all detainees for their civil detention cases.The amount, and into what areas those dollars will go, will be worked out in future meetings with the administration, members of the freeholder board and advocates for the detainees. A survey of detainees conducted by advocates may be authorized as part of the plan.“Just a month ago, I did not see a path that would allow us to move forward on a path to exit,” said County Executive DeGise. “I’m pleased that after what I have heard from state and federal leaders, I believe we have a consensus on how Hudson County can exit the contract in a responsible manner.”Freeholder Board Chairman Anthony Vainieri, who attended all of the discussions with County staff and the advocates, welcomed the Path to Exit plan.“Over the last month the county executive, my fellow freeholders, state and federal leaders and local advocates for detainees have worked constructively to make this exit plan possible, and I am proud of the work that has been done to arrive at this point,” said Vainieri. “I will urge my colleagues to support this plan because it represents a humane, reasonable approach.”One of the most prominent elected officials critical of the county’s contract with ICE, Hoboken Mayor Ravi Bhalla, welcomed the announcement from the county executive today.“With this action, the county executive and the freeholders have begun the work of dealing with this issue in keeping with our values, while dealing with the difficult realities of governing at the local level, and I applaud that,” said Mayor Bhalla.NB C.A.R.E.S. donates to Newark student programWhen Principal Akbar Cook of West Side High School in Newark discovered that a large number of students were chronically missing school because they were unable to afford to wash their clothes, he established a free laundromat right in the school.And when NB C.A.R.E.S. heard about the program, they immediately donated a large amount of detergent and brand new clothing to support the initiative. NB C.A.R.E.S. Coordinator Aimee Focaraccio traveled to Newark with the items on Thursday, Aug. 30 and delivered them free to the school.North Bergen Mayor Nicholas Sacco, as a politician, an educator, and a father himself, offered high praise for the program and for Principal Cook, pledging to continue working with the school to make life easier for the students.Registration open for fall programs at the LibraryThe North Bergen Free Public Library’s fall program registration for the main library, the Kennedy Branch, and the Guttenberg Resource Center began on Tuesday, Sept. 4, 2018.Registration is open to North Bergen and Guttenberg residents.

Freshman Johnson struggles to find shooting stroke

first_img Published on November 6, 2013 at 3:22 am Contact Stephen: [email protected] | @Stephen_Bailey1 Teammates agree B.J. Johnson is one of the top shooters on the team. They always mention him with Trevor Cooney.But in Syracuse’s two exhibitions this week, the freshman wing is just 1-for-11 from the field and 0-for-6 from 3-point range. He scored only two points — both on free throws — during SU’s 81-46 preseason finale win over Ryerson on Tuesday.“All you can say is just, ‘Keep shooting,’” Cooney said. “He’s a good shooter. He makes shots in practice and he’ll make shots in a game when he gets his shot.”Johnson quickly left the locker room after Tuesday’s game, but C.J. Fair said Boeheim berated Johnson for his defensive lapses against the Rams. Twice he and fellow freshman Tyler Roberson retreated to the same side of the court on defense. AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I think he got a little frustrated today,” Fair said. “Coach got on him about a defensive assignment. He knows the defense very well. He’s got to know that if you make a mistake you’ve just got to keep it going. “You can’t dwell on it if coach gets on you.”After missing both of his shots in the first half — playing a team-low three minutes — Johnson returned at the 8:37 mark of the second half.He bricked a corner 3 on Syracuse’s first possession, committed a foul at the other end of the court and missed a jumper to complete a miserable 35 seconds.Ninety seconds later, Johnson pump faked in the corner, drove and was fouled.He missed his final attempt of the game.“It’s frustrating when you’re a freshman, your time is limited and you’re not making a shot,” Fair said. “I can see where he’s coming from. “ Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Aileen seals senior title with birdie, birdie finish

first_img A birdie, birdie finish sealed a five shot victory for Aileen Greenfield in the English Senior Women’s Stroke Play Championship at St Enodoc in Cornwall.Greenfield, from Pyecombe in Sussex, came from a shot behind to beat Jackie Foster (Bishops Stortford, Hertfordshire), ahead of a three-way tie for third place.The new champion, who finished on 10-over par, has been very close to this title before, notably getting into a play-off in 2015 when she made her debut in senior ranks. The following year she was again runner-up.This time there were no mistakes and she adds the title to the English Senior Women’s Amateur which she won last year and she commented: “I’m over the moon, absolutely over the moon.”She trailed Foster, a two-times winner, by a stroke going into today’s final round and after two holes had dropped three further back. At the turn, Foster was still three shots clear, but it all changed on the back nine.Greenfield came home in two-under par, with three birdies in the last four holes, while Foster struggled back in six-over.“I didn’t look at the scoreboard, I was playing with Jackie but I hadn’t a clue about the scores, I’d just have got too excited otherwise,” said Greenfield.“It was just a game of patience. The front nine was playing a lot harder than the back and I got though those holes trying to do no worse than a bogey and then I hoped to get the birdies later on.”Third place was shared by Julie Wheeldon (Wakefield, Yorkshire), former champion Lulu Housman (Wyke Green, Middlesex) and Australia’s Sue Wooster.St Enodoc’s Caroline Hume-Kendall finished in a tie for 19th place.Click here for final scoresCaption: Aileen Greenfield, third left, with England Golf President Jenny Clink (next right) and other prize winners Tags: Aileen Greenfield, English Senior Women’s Open Stroke Play, St Enodoc 20 Jun 2019 Aileen seals senior title with birdie, birdie finish last_img read more
