  • Ex-Boy Scout chaplain gets long sentence on abuse charges

    first_imgSOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. (AP) — A 76-year-old former volunteer Boy Scout chaplain has been sentenced to serve 40 years in prison after pleading no contest to sexually assaulting six young men, including a developmentally disabled victim. James Glawson, of Exeter, was sentenced Thursday after pleading no contest to 11 charges. Glawson told the judge in court that prays every day for those he hurt. The state attorney general’s office says Glawson committed multiple acts of sexual assault against five victims beginning in the 1980’s when he served as a volunteer Catholic chaplain for the Boy Scouts and his most recent victim in 2019 was developmentally disabled.last_img read more

  • Basilica Choirs to perform ‘Advent Lessons and Carols’

    first_imgNotre Dame’s Basilica choirs will celebrate the season of Advent through music Sunday evening at their annual Advent Lessons and Carols concert.The concert will feature all Notre Dame Basilica choirs — the Liturgical Choir, the Women’s Liturgical Choir, the Folk Choir, the Basilica Schola and the Handbell Choir, senior Chris Siemann, a Folk Choir member, said. Each group will perform a choral piece related to Advent with biblical readings throughout the evening.“[The concert is] a good way to do Advent intentionally,” Siemann said. “Between … Lent and Advent, Lent seems much more intentional religiously because there are things you give up and things like that, so it lends itself more easily to intention. But this can be an opportunity to have people approach Advent with a different mindset.”Junior Abby DeMars, a member of the Liturgical Choir, said each group performing will bring a different sound and style of music to Sunday’s performance.“[Students that attend] are going to get a diversity of styles and different types of music, because you have [groups] ranging from Liturgical Choir, Women’s Lit, to the Basilica Schola — very different styles of music, all focusing on Advent and the coming of Christ,” DeMars said. “So it’ll be a beautiful evening showing the preparation for Christ.”But that diversity of style is what makes coming together to sing about Advent all the more beautiful, DeMars said.“All of the choirs that are singing, it’s like — this is our purpose, to make the Liturgy more beautiful and to show the beauty of God and His creation,” she said. “So we all get to do that, and we all do it in slightly different ways, but its all for the same purpose.”Siemann said Advent, the focus of the concert, is a reminder of what is truly important in the rush before Christmas break.“I think [the concert] would be a really good way to reflect and kind of get the bigger picture before finals week,” Siemann said. “Because there’s a week left before finals, and final projects and papers are looming, and that’s surely what’s on everyone’s mind. … It would be a really cool way to de-stress and get the bigger picture back.”That bigger picture is important, DeMars said.“I like that [the Basilica choirs] get to bring the season of Advent to Notre Dame, so it’s not just straight to the season of Christmas,” she said. “It’s specifically Advent Lessons and Carols, so it’s in preparation, which isn’t so much emphasized, because we want to do Christmas things, which is beautiful.“But there’s also something to be said about preparation and about waiting for the coming of Christ. … So I really like that aspect of [the concert]. And it’s in the evening so it’s kind of like a night prayer, waiting for the morning to come when Christ comes.”The Basilica Choirs will perform Advent Lessons and Carols this Sunday at 7:15 in the Basilica of the Sacred Heart.Tags: Advent, Basilica of the Sacred Heart, Basilica Schola, christmas, Christmas season, Folk Choir, Handbell Choir, Liturgical Choir, Women’s Liturgical Choirlast_img read more

Messi has told Barca that he wants to leave this summer and that the clause in his contract allowing him to exit for free is still valid due to the extended lockdown. However, the Blaugrana maintains the contract to June 2021 will stand and it’s reported President Josep Maria Bartomeu has even refused to meet with Messi to discuss anything other than an extension. A legal battle is on the way, with numerous clubs ready to swoop in and make the most of the situation.

  • MBB : Joseph sits out 2nd half; Jardine has strongest performance of season

    first_imgJim Boeheim typically starts the same five players in the second half that he uses to start a game. The Syracuse head coach has done so consistently in the early games this season. But against Colgate, the Orange head coach made a change.Kris Joseph, SU’s leading scorer entering Saturday’s game, did not start the second half while sophomore C.J. Fair took his place on the court. And while Joseph changed seats on the bench a couple times, he did not play at all in the second half.‘Kris Joseph hurt his knee a little bit in the last game and it hurt a little bit in practice,’ Boeheim said. ‘He could’ve played the second half, but it was sore and it was stiff so we’re just going to try to get him healthy for next week.’Boeheim was thinking ahead to the semifinals of the NIT Season Tip-off in New York City when SU takes on Virginia Tech on Wednesday. The Orange built a 33-point halftime lead Saturday against Colgate en route to its 92-47 romp in the Carrier Dome. And with the game well in hand by the break, the head coach felt it would be better to let Joseph rest his bad knee.The senior small forward came into Saturday’s contest averaging 16.7 points and 5.3 rebounds per game. He also led the Orange in scoring last year.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textJoseph had surgery on his right knee in the offseason but his left knee is the one that has caused some problems this year. He played 13 minutes in the first half Saturday, going 0-for-2 but making all four of his free throw attempts to finish with four points against the Red Raiders. He also had two assists, a rebound and two turnovers.The senior did not appear to be limping at all during the action and he had no trouble getting up to celebrate late in the game when the Orange’s walk-ons managed to score.And while Joseph has been a major part of the team early on, Boeheim said his absence in the second half provided another opportunity to give other players some experience.‘We got a lot of guys in there who aren’t used to what this is all about,’ Boeheim said. ‘Hopefully, we’ll be pretty well prepared going to New York.’Jardine has strongest performance of seasonFrom the get-go, this was a different Scoop Jardine. The ill-advised decisions of the season’s opening games were gone. The poise of a fifth-year senior shone through in its place.‘I’m really settling in to my role,’ Jardine said. ‘The first two games were kind of tough, trying to make things happen that weren’t there.’But Saturday, Jardine orchestrated the offense comfortably and efficiently. In only 16 minutes of play the result of a 92-47 blowout over Colgate Jardine had his best game of the young season for the Orange. He scored 11 points, dished out six assists and had three steals. And most importantly, he had zero turnovers.Within the first five minutes of Saturday’s win, Jardine’s play was markedly different from his first few games.After pulling in a rebound off a missed 3-pointer by Pat Moore with 17:34 remaining in the first half, Jardine took off down court on the fast break. A behind-the-back dribble led to a beautiful dish to Joseph. And though Joseph missed, it was the magnificent feed that stuck out.On Colgate’s next trip down the floor, Jardine stripped Raiders guard Mitch Rolls and took the ball all the way to the basket for the layup.Seconds later, he hit Baye Keita with a perfect one-handed shovel pass, resulting in a shooting foul.‘I don’t have to do it all on this team,’ Jardine said. ‘I know when my opportunities to score, I know when they’ll be there. But right now, we’ve got a lot of guys that can score. I just have to be efficient, get us in our offense and play great defense and just be that team leader.’Though the much-improved performance came in reduced minutes against Colgate, it was a positive sign for the Orange. Dion Waiters and Brandon Triche still combined for 25 points in addition to Jardine’s 11. The result was a strong collective effort from SU’s three experienced guards for the first time all season.‘But tonight, you’ve seen the Scoop Jardine that you wanted to see all year,’ Jardine said. ‘I’m going to be better.’[email protected] Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on November 19, 2011 at 12:00 pmcenter_img Commentslast_img read more

  • Women’s soccer looks to bounce back

    first_imgFancy footwork · Senior midfielder Jamie Fink started all 21 games as a junior en route to earning All Pac-12 honors and will look to help her team back to the NCAA tournament in her final season. – Kenneth Rodriguez-Clisham | Daily TrojanThe USC women’s soccer program may not be ranked in the NSCAA Division I national preseason top 25, but there is a serious chance that the Women of Troy will be in the mix for the national title this season.The team’s 2014 season came to a screeching halt in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, as the Women of Troy were close to advancing but fell to Pepperdine on penalty kicks following a 1-1 draw. Losing a penalty shootout in the NCAA Tournament is as painful as it gets, but it often makes a team stronger in the long run.USC appears to be ready to make the leap from a top-tier team to a true national title contender. It would not be the first time such strides were made in the program’s history.In 2007, the Women of Troy won the National Championship, the first and only national title USC has captured since the program’s inception in 1993.That being said, it is not merely blind optimism leading the wave of positivity surrounding the 2015 installment of USC women’s soccer. The pieces are in place.It all starts with second-year head coach Keidane McAlpine, a veteran who guided the Trojans to a 12-6-3 record in his first season at the helm. McAlpine made his way to Troy from Washington State, where he was named Pac-12 Coach of the Year in 2013 for his outstanding work with the WSU Cougars.Exactly one-third of the Trojans’ roster is comprised of seniors, meaning there will be no shortage of experience and leadership in the locker room this season. The squad also welcomes a talented batch of freshmen, all in-state products with the exception of Swedish import Olga Langenskiöld.Savannah Levin, a junior who is capable of playing in the midfield or up top, praised the team’s camaraderie as the 2015 season approaches.“I am really excited for this season because the team’s chemistry on and off the field continues to grow,” Levin said. “Having a tight-knit team makes you want to compete for each other that much more.”Looking back at the Trojans’ 2014 season, something is immediately apparent: McAlpine and company sure knew how to take care of business in non-conference play. The team opened with nine non-conference games, losing just one of those fixtures and outscoring their opponents 29-7 in the process.One of the team’s most impressive wins of the 2014 season came in the form of a 2-1 win against Notre Dame in South Bend. The Irish claimed the No. 9 ranking in the country prior to the match, but the Trojans prevailed despite the fact that they were in enemy territory and were trailing at the half. Winning such contests early in the season can provide a team with tremendous momentum as it enters conference play.It is also worth noting that the Women of Troy recorded two wins that day, one on the pitch and one on the recruiting front. Morgan Andrews, a midfielder for the Irish that day, has since transferred to USC and figures to be an integral member of the team moving forward. Andrews, who started every game during her two years with Notre Dame, was dominant for the Irish. She had six goals and five assists last season, playing her way to Second Team All-ACC status.Andrews, a two-time Gatorade National Soccer Player of the Year recipient as a prep star in New Hampshire, is one of three transfers USC has reeled in this offseason. Sydney Myers and Amanda Rooney, formerly of Santa Clara and North Carolina, respectively, will join the Trojans’ midfield along with Andrews. The trio will bolster what was already a strong midfield corps.As new faces enter the picture, though, some members of the team inevitably fade out of the equation.Among the departures is standout goalkeeper Caroline Stanley, leaving a void between the pipes. Senior Faith Sugerman, sophomore Julia Murphy and redshirt junior Sammy Jo Prudhomme are all worthy candidates as successor to the goaltending throne.The team opens play against Texas Tech and Florida State in Albuquerque, New Mexico on Aug. 21. The Seminoles are the top-ranked team in the land after winning the 2014 National Title, but FSU is not the only elite team the Trojans will face before jumping into conference play. The team will also travel to Durham, North Carolina in early September to take on perennial powerhouses Duke and North Carolina.Though the fans may like to look ahead at the schedule in search of the marquee matchups, the team takes things one game — even one drill — at a time.“We have a new team motto this year that refers to sticking in the moment and dedicating ourselves to that time,” Levin said. “I think continuing to build on what we’ve learned so far and focusing on the details will help us continue to improve.”last_img read more
