We’re focused on getting better and getting out team ready for league play.”

England international Josh Hilleard has followed in the footsteps of players such as Rickie Fowler, Hunter Mahan, JB Holmes and Michelle Wie to win a prestigious American award. His feat in winning four titles in 22 days has been recognised with the Southern Golf Association’s Amateur of the Month Award for April. Other nominations included the amateur world number one Jon Rahm of Spain. Hilleard, from Farrington Park in Somerset, won the Berkhamsted Trophy, the Faldo Series Wales championship, the Hampshire Salver and the West of England Amateur, in a stunning run which has taken him to the top of the England Golf order of merit. Buford McCarty, secretary of the SGA, told Hilleard: “This run comprised an amazing string of victories, certainly an accomplishment worthy of this award and something you will recall for the rest of your life. Hilleard received the award from England Golf Performance Director, Nigel Edwards, at the recent England v France international, where he was joint top scorer, helping England to a 10-14 win. He remarked: “It’s a privilege – and always nice – to be recognised on a wider scale than you imagined. I had no idea that anyone would know about this in the States.” Previous English amateurs to win the award include Matt Fitzpatrick, now a winner on the European Tour, and Alice Hewson who has been selected for the GB&I team for next month’s Curtis Cup. The award is decided by a ‘Blue Ribbon’ panel of college coaches, sports writers and golf administrators throughout the US.

Facebook0Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Saint Martin’s University Saint Martin’s University will begin offering a new Certificate in Software Systems at its Lacey campus in late October, building on the success of its Microsoft Software and Systems Academy, a program currently offered in partnership with the Microsoft Corp. at the University’s Extension Campus at Joint Base Lewis-McChord’s Stone Education Center. The new certificate program is primarily designed to serve active-duty military and veterans but also will be open to others in the community, says David Olwell, Ph.D., dean of the University’s Hal and Inge Marcus School of Engineering. Final program approval was recently received from the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, making it fully eligible for financial aid through the Veterans Administration.Dean of the University’s Extended Learning Division Radana Dvorak, who has been instrumental in the program’s success at JBLM, said, “I am absolutely delighted that the NWCCU approved the certificate program and grateful to all my colleagues for working so hard to get this off the ground. It’s great news for our wider community population that includes so many veterans, service members and others who stand to benefit from this opportunity.” Olwell says the one-semester certificate course will be offered in the University’s new Panowicz Foundry for Innovation and the E. L. Wiegand Laboratories. Microsoft has equipped the classroom with cutting-edge computers and software. For veterans who have earned their certification, Microsoft also provides a comprehensive program to support employment readiness, including individual mentoring.Since it was launched in 2013, the certificate program at JBLM has proved highly successful, with 98 percent of its 141 graduates now employed in the industry. “They are successfully placed in excellent-paying, high-tech jobs with major employers such as Microsoft, Google, Amazon, and other industry leaders,” Olwell said. “The University expects to prepare students for similar career-focused success through this new certificate program on campus.”The first cohort of students on the University’s Lacey campus will begin in late October, and the next in February. In January, Saint Martin’s will begin a 42-week evening/weekend cohort, Olwell said. About 20 students will be enrolled in each group.For more information or to begin the application process, interested veterans and active-duty military can contact Robert Bone, manager of the Microsoft Academy at Saint Martin’s JBLM extension campus, 253-964-4688; [email protected] Others interested in the Lacey campus program can contact Computer Science Chair Mario Guimaraes, Ph.D., 360-688-2662;[email protected]
Impact on public schools is a concernBy John BurtonRED BANK – A plan to double the size of Red Bank Charter School is necessary in order to meet the needs of the entire community, said Meredith Pennotti, the charter school’s principal.But some traditional public schools supporters fear the increased size would compromise the budgets, resources and extracurricular activities for Red Bank’s diverse school population.And there are the taxpayers, who wonder what it would mean for their property tax bills – should the plan move forward.“The reality is this is not good for the children of Red Bank. It’s not good for the taxpayers of Red Bank. It’s not good for Red Bank,” stressed Jared Rumage, Red Bank superintendent of schools.“We feel we have a model that can be shared more in Red Bank,” for the educational community’s betterment, Pennotti said of the plans.In December, The Red Bank Charter School, 58 Oakland St., submitted a proposal to state Department of Education (DOE) Commissioner David Hespe in Trenton to increase enrollment and facility.Hespe is expected to make his determination toward the end of February, according to DOE spokesman David Saenz.The plan calls for doubling the school’s current student population to 400 from its current 200. That would be done over a three-year period period. In essence, it means adding an additional class of students per grade for the pre-K-8th grade school, according to Pennotti.For the past three years, Pennotti said the wait list for students has been “robust,” roughly 112 students, believing that filling the additional 200 seats is an easy call.The “clincher” for school officials in favor of seeking the expansion, according to Pennotti, was the availability of an adjacent property, 135 Monmouth Street, which the school would use for its S.T.E.M. (science, technology, engineering and math) lab and additional classroom and activity space.Another deciding factor for the school is recent changes in state education policy that allow other factors to be considered when evaluating students’ and families’ socio-economic status as part of admission.Charter school students are selected by an annual lottery, but siblings are accepted without submitting to the lottery. Last year, however, DOE officials changed the lottery to give more weight to family income and other factors, to give those students a better chance to be selected.“This will increase our ability to serve the economically disadvantaged,” Pennotti said.The charter school is increasing its community outreach by mailing a bilingual application to every residence in the community that also makes families aware of the changes in the lottery system, according to Pennotti.Concern about how a proposed expansion of the Red Bank Charter School could impact public schools drew people to the borough’s middle school auditorium Wednesday. They marched to the Borough Council meeting at Borough Hall. Photo: Tina ColellaThe fact that the charter school population is significantly less diverse than the public school population and the community at large has long been a source of contention. Early in the charter school’s history, which was established in 1998, the district Board of Education waged a lengthy and rather bitter legal battle arguing the school allowed for creating a segregated school district, providing for “white flight” from the public school – on the taxpayer’s dime. The lawsuit was eventually unsuccessful and the two entities had entered into a sort of separate peace, letting live and let live, until this development.Increasing the enrollment, fears Rumage, “It is fairly accurate to say that funding would double over that period.” And given the state finances, no one expects funding from Trenton to increase in an appreciable way, he added.The public school district is currently required to provide $1.67 million for the 2015-2016 school year to cover 90 percent of the cost to provide under state guidelines what is determined to be a “thorough and efficient education.” It is up to the charter schools to find the additional 10 percent of the cost and provide and upkeep a facility.Should the state education commissioner allow this plan, departing students will result in less state education aid to the district. And that Rumage maintained, would mean having to raise property taxes, likely to the maximum 5 percent cap, to cover some of the shortfall. And given those limitations, he said, the likely scenario would mean cuts to programs, possibly eliminating positions and abandoning some programs.“It will lead to cuts here that will be devastating,” Rumage said. “I can’t emphasize that enough.”Pennotti countered, saying state aid dollars follow the student, so that money wouldn’t have gone to the district anyway and any decision the charter school makes has no impact on the public school budget.“What happens to the tax rate is the decision the borough makes in its spending,” Pennotti argued, referring to the borough board of education. “We have no input in the school budget.”The charter school was established by activist parents in the late 1990s when Gov. Christine Todd Whitman signed the legislation allowing for such schools to operate. In Red Bank the school was in response to a failing public school district, with rundown facilities and dismal test scores.Charter schools are public schools but have greater freedom and are exempt from much of the bureaucracy that critics say bogs down traditional public education. This freedom, charter school supporters argue, allows for more creative and effective education and gives families a choice.Families braved bitter cold Wednesday night to express concern about proposed plans for a charter school expansion. Photo: Tina ColellaRumage insisted, “I’m not anti-charter school. I’m just anti-expansion,” at this point. He hoped the charter school would postpone the expansion to give the district time to evaluate its situation.Pennotti dismisses the idea of waiting. “Waiting for what?” she asked. “We waited for a promise of a new day from five superintendents,” to turn around the public schools in the 18 years the charter school has been operating. Pennotti maintained her school’s standardized test scores far exceed the public schools’ and “for the sake of the children we have to move forward.”Rumage, who has been in the district for less than two years, fired back that Pennotti and others have mischaracterized the public school students’ achievements. “The big issue here is that people don’t know the full story,” and the strides the public district has been making over the years.The public school disproportionately faces more challenges than the charter school population. Ninety percent of the 1,410 students at the middle and primary schools qualify for (mostly) free and reduced cost lunch, a traditional measure of family income levels. The population also includes 33 percent of students who are limited English language proficient.By contrast, 52 percent of charter school are white (as compared to the 8 percent in the public schools), with a 4 percent population that is limited English-language proficient. The charter school population is 34 percent Hispanic; the public school population is 78 percent Hispanic. The number of charter school students who qualify for the free and reduced cost lunch is currently 38 percent.And some sources indicate that the per pupil funding results in the charter school receiving $2,000 more per student, per year.Julia Sass Rubin, an associate professor at Rutgers University’s Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, and an adjunct professor at Princeton University, has been studying Red Bank and its Charter School as part of her research on state funding of charter schools. Her analysis indicates the charter school has yet to live up to its potential even with its additional resources and continues to contribute to a segregated school district. “The data is pretty straightforward,” she said. “The district is underfunded relative to the charter school, under the current formula.”And when factoring in other variables, the larger percent of special needs students, among others, the divide is closer to $5,000 more per charter school student. And taking all of that into consideration, Rubin said, “if you look at all of those considerations, the charter school is really underperforming,” she said.In her final analysis, this expansion, “would either be devastating for the district or devastating for the taxpayers.”It should be noted Rubin has her detractors. In response to a report on charter school funding, enrollment and demographics she did with a doctoral candidate Mark Weber last year, the New Jersey Charter School Association, a charter school advocacy group, took Rubin to task. The association accused Rubin of having a personal agenda against charter schools.Rubin, this week denied that, offering, “Am I pro-public schools? Absolutely. But I’m not anti-charter school,” noting her daughter had attended a charter school for couple of years and Rubin had served on a nonprofit board that provided charter school facility funding.Rubin planned on providing her research to local educational and elected officials on Friday.This debate has spilled over into the political arena, as well. Mayor Pasquale Menna at this year’s annual reorganization meeting called it “The elephant in the room.”While the borough council has no formal say in the matter or decision, Menna plans to form a “blue ribbon committee,” of objective educational and financial professionals to evaluate the plan’s impact. Their report will be submitted to the DOE for consideration.In addition, on Wednesday evening the borough council was expected to vote on a nonbinding resolution asking the charter school to delay any actions until more information can be collected.Council sources said there was unanimous and bipartisan support for the resolution.
By John Burton |OCEANPORT — The Mazza family is looking to find out the extent of the contamination of its Port Au Peck Avenue property as it weighs possible future development.“We don’t have plans right now for what we’re going to do with the site,” said Dominick Joseph Mazza Jr. about the 6 ½-acre property his family owns at 275 Port Au Peck Ave., near Monmouth Park.Regardless of any future plans, the property owners are undertaking an investigation into how extensive the contamination is at the location, which in the past had been used as a dump site for the Mazza family’s primary business, Mazza Recycling Services, Tinton Falls.In recent years, the owners have proposed several possible projects, among them a single-family home sub-division and more recently a plan to use the location for a mix of two single-family homes and a commercial horse-boarding business. Those plans were eventually abandoned.Mazza and his environmental consultant made their presentation to Mayor John “Jay” Coffey, Borough Council and members of the public at the Sept. 7 council workshop meeting.“A lot people are here for this,” Coffey said, noticing the crowd attending the workshop.The Mazza family has retained Brinkerhoff Environmental Services, Manasquan, to conduct an investigation of the site to determine the extent of the contamination and “for the best way to address the problem,” said Laura Brinkerhoff, the firm’s president.The firm plans to excavate a series of approximately 2-by-4-foot pits over a period of time to gain a more comprehensive grasp of what’s in the soil, according to Brinkerhoff. “We’re going to map it out and monitor it,” she said.Brinkerhoff said she is awaiting permits from the state Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) to allow them to proceed with the testing.The property owners have applied for an investigative permit, which is forthcoming, according to Lawrence Hajna, a NJDEP spokesman, “to characterize the waste and determine the extent of the footprint of the landfill.”On about three of the property’s acres, located at the rear of the site, discarded house shingles containing asbestos have been found, Brinkeroff said. Asbestos is a prohibited known carcinogenic.“The greatest concern is the disturbance of the ground,” on the site, given the nature of the contamination, Coffey said. Area residents have said in the past they feared the asbestos would be released into the environment, posing a health risk.Brinkerhoff attempted to allay those fears, telling the audience and governing body no excavation would be done on windy days and NJDEP would be monitoring the process. And when the borings were completed the pits would be covered with about two feet of clean fill.Neighbors again voiced reservations about the contaminations and other environmental considerations, such as wetlands on the property, which backs up to a creek, and nesting eagles.“We have to concern ourselves with the runoff,” from the site, said Karen Long, a Revere Drive homeowner. Whose home is in the vicinity of this property.“We’re investigating to see if there is a bigger problem,” Brinkerhoff said.NJDEP’s Hajna said, “What we believe to be in the landfill is construction and demolition waste.”And Long, who has lived in the area for many years, recalls others finding an old auto chassis, auto batteries, and an old water heater, among other debris. Long accused the Mazzas of “negligence across the board.”“Your family’s not doing the right thing,” Long told the Mazzas.The Mazza family has owned the property since the 1920s, Dominick Mazza said. Over the years, they considered constructing age-restricted housing and the borough land use board had previously approved a subdivision plan to create 12 separate residential lots, but the plan never moved forward.In April 2016, the owners again appeared before the board seeking a use variance to permit the construction of two homes and a stable and exercise area that could accommodate as many as 12 horses. The property owners withdrew the application without explanation in May 2016, but had faced opposition from residents who objected to a commercial use for the residential area and the concerns over the contamination.Borough officials said they would keep residents apprised of developments with the property investigation, reporting updates on the borough website. Residents within 200 feet of the site would be directly notified of any activity, as required by law.This article was first published in the Sept. 14-21, 2017 print edition of The Two River Times.

15 September 2015Sibella the cheetah died early in the morning in the Samara Private Game Reserve near Graaff-Reinet after a clash with a duiker buck it was hunting. The cheetah suffered a deep wound to its abdomen.Born wild in North West province, Sibella was rehomed in Samara in 2003. It had been captured and tortured by hunters at the age of two. Sibella died on Friday, 11 September.“Lying at death’s door, she was fortunate enough to be rescued by the De Wildt Cheetah and Wildlife Trust. She owes her life to the five-hour surgery and dedicated rehabilitation that ensued,” said Margie Varney, Samara general manager, said at the time of the relocation.Sibella began a new chapter in December 2003, when it was released on to the Samara game reserve. The release surpassed all expectations.Samara Private Game Reserve lies 20km southeast of Graaff-Rienet in Eastern Cape. It encompasses not only the Karoo mountain complex and parts of the Great Escarpment, but also sweeping plains to create a unique area for wildlife, including four of South Africa’s seven natural biomes. It is home to a variety of buck, birdlife and smaller carnivores, including the African wild cat and brown hyena, but is most famous for its Cheetah Metapopulation Programme, managed by the Endangered Wildlife Trust, of which Sibella was the most fruitful participant.Sibella reared an astonishing 20 cubs in four litters at Samara, alone contributing to a 3% increase in the wild cheetah population in South Africa.According to Varney, Sibella was a consummate mother, giving birth on steep mountain slopes to evade other predators, and always making sure the cubs had enough to eat and were well-protected before going out on their own.Sibella had shared an extraordinary bond with humans. “With the birth of each new litter, when the cubs were old enough to leave their den, this wild cat dutifully presented to her human guardians her latest bundles of fur. The degree of trust she vested in human beings, walking to within just a few metres of them, was simply astounding – her past suffering at the hands of her tormentors all but forgotten,” Varney said.On the official Samara blog, a simple message from Varney and the rest of the reserve team offered some final words on the loss of Sibella: “We mourn her loss but seek comfort in knowing that she lived and died in a wild environment. We feel incredibly privileged to have been witness to the life of this exceptional cat.”On social media, wildlife photographers, conservationists and ordinary people from around the world posted heartfelt messages and photos of Sibella, queen of the Karoo cheetahs.Rest in Peace, Sibella . @samarakaroo #cheetah #SouthAfrica http://t.co/WW1CxNXHLC— Marcy Mendelson (@MendelsonImages) Septemb er 11, 2015Iconic “matriarch’ Cheetah Sibella dies http://t.co/6bleCsbg55#Op4Cheetahs #Sibella pic.twitter.com/HmBxga9Enk— #Op4Cheetahs (@Op4Cheetahs) September 12, 2015Ah.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The first and most economical approach (a.k.a. save money) to manage many of the pathogens that impact soybean in the state of Ohio is to pick varieties that have the right resistance package.If the resistance is effective then there is no need for any further measures during the season. The soybean plant can take care of itself, especially during years when conditions are favorable for disease development.We routinely use both resistant and susceptible varieties/germplasm in our test locations. Germplasm are soybean lines that may have come from another country or are in the breeding pipeline of a public breeder — they are not quite ready for “prime time” but the genetics are on the way to keep improving soybean varieties. A major contribution to soybean development from the public land grants has been the assessment and genetic discovery of key genes that contribute not only to yield but also to disease, pest, and abiotic stress reduction.Here are some examples from our studies in Ohio. Sudden death syndromeI don’t talk about this disease too often, as it is mainly limited to a few geographic regions in this state, is very sporadic and unpredictable when it will occur, is associated with soybean cyst nematode and the yield losses have not been as impressive as other pathogens. However, we have evaluated new germplasm every year as well as some of the seed treatments to address this. Here is some data from 2014 when disease symptoms were severe. Test A. Examined the performance of two cultivars with SCN resistance but one is SDS susceptible (Cultivar A) and the second is Resistant (Cultivar B).Soybean VarietySDS severityFinal YieldCultivar A30357.9Cultivar B1.761.6 Test B. Evaluated the performance of soybean germplasm for resistance to SDS. These are the checks, and this test demonstrates the variability in disease levels that we seem to face here in Ohio.Checks20142015Resistant A2.84.4Resistant B2.2ntResistant C0.6ntSusceptible A27.8ntSusceptible B44.428 Disease severity of sudden death syndrome is measured first by the percentage of the plants within the plot that have symptoms of the disease followed by a score for the severity of the symptoms. The score ranges from 1 to 9, where 1 is no disease; 2 to 5 based on the amount of the yellow and necrotic spots on the plants; 6 to 8 based on the amount of defoliation; 9 is based on the amount of prematurely dead plants. nt indicates that the line was not tested. Sclerotinia white moldThe resistance levels to this pathogen have slowly been improving over the years to the point that it is really hard to show the benefit of mid-season fungicide applications. From 2014 we evaluated four cultivars in a field with a long and sordid history of white mold.VarietyPercent Incidence Sclerotinia stem rot (no. of plants killed prematurely) 2014Loc A-2015Loc B-2015A8NtntB29NtntC3100D3600 Frogeye leaf spotThis leaf pathogen has a wide range of responses among northern cultivars. For the most part many of our varieties have resistance,however there are a few that are highly susceptible and do require a fungicide treatment mid-season. This year we had two varieties planted at Western Research station and within the study they were placed throughout the study to measure the levels of disease within the field. As you can see, the response was consistent across the field.VarietyPercent leaf area affected by frogeye leaf spot 1234A0.30.10.71B3.34.05.74.8 Phytophthora root and stem rotThis disease is most common on poorly drained soils and we have recovered or found plants with symptoms in all of Ohio’s soybean production regions, it is not just a northwestern Ohio problem. The key to managing this disease is with host resistance, which is a combination of Rps genes and partial resistance (also known as tolerance and field resistance). This past year under heavy flooding and disease pressure, several of the new public varieties had significantly higher yields than some of the older standards. These varieties were also planted in 30-inch rows near the end of May, received between 15 and 20 inches of rain within 2 weeks after planting.CultivarResistance packageDefianceBu/APauldingBu/AConradno Rps genes/high partial resistance (PR)13.87.2DennisonRps1k + 3a, high PR25.318.2KottmanRps1k+3a, high PR20.423.3LorainRps1c, high PR25.021.6Sloanno Rps genes/low PR10.86.8StreeterRps1c + 3a, high PR22.320.1SummitRps1k + 3a, high PR24.020.4 For each of these diseases, companies use a different scoring system for resistance and on top of that, each company uses different values. For example, for Phytophthora, companies will list which Rps gene(s) are present in the variety. For Ohio, the gene stacks of Rps1c + 3a; Rps1k + 3a provide the best management, followed by single genes Rps1k, Rps3a, and Rps6.For partial resistance towards Phytophthora, Sudden Death syndrome, frogeye leafspot or white mold, the scoring is very different. Most often it is on a 1 to 9 scale and depending on the company, 1 can be great or it can be dead. The only way to tell is to read the fine print in the tables.
