Saturday almost had it all at Shawano

first_imgJoey Taycher won for the first time in his IMCA Modified career Saturday at Shawano Speedway. (Photo by A and H Photos)By Scott OwenSHAWANO, Wis. (June 10) — One night removed from a full moon, the Shawano Speedway al­most had it all … a nasty wreck, a first-time winner, sweet redemption following a nasty wreck and drivers coming from deep in the field.Joey Taycher got soaked in victory lane after his first career IMCA Modified victory. Travis Van Straten won his fourth local IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature of the season and Jason Ebert won his first Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod feature of the season.The IMCA Modified feature got off to a scary start as more than half the field was involved in a wreck at the end of the back straight away. Lance Arneson rolled multiple times before his car came to rest on its side. All drivers were okay though numerous cars were eliminated from action.Once the race got going again, Taycher and Matt McDermid raced side-by-side for the top spot before Taycher pulled ahead. Taycher led the rest of the race for his first career win in the divi­sion. McDermid held on to finish a strong second in only his third night back after a seven-year hiatus. Seventy-six-year young Jerry Muenster continues to amaze after a third place finish.Luke Uttecht led early in the IMCA Stock Car feature as Van Straten quickly raced to se­cond. Van Straten and Justin Jacobsen passed Uttecht to begin a battle for the lead. As the laps clicked away, Jacobsen made numerous attempts to find a way around Van Straten. Jacobsen tried the high line right on the wall and the low line right on the barrels, but to no avail. Van Straten held on to win the race, his fourth in a row. Dan Michonski came from 15th to finish third.The Northern SportMod feature was led early by Tyler Thiex but Ebert quickly moved to the front. Ebert led the rest of the way fending off a late charge by Lucas Lamberies for the win. For Ebert, it was sweet redemption after a nasty wreck a few weeks back. Lamberies, fresh off a big win in Davenport, Iowa the previous night, came from 18th to finish second. Jordan Barkholtz took third.last_img read more

Bel’s record play in WPGA event

first_img12 May 2014 Bel’s record play in WPGA event England U16 squad player Bel Wardle set a new amateur course record and claimed a runners-up place when she teed up for the first time against a field of women professionals.Bel, 14, shot a one-under par 71 at Dunham Forest, Cheshire, in the first of this year’s events on the WPGA One Day Series.Her score clipped a shot off the old record and left her in a three-way tie for second place and just one-stroke behind the winner, Claire Duffy of Test Valley, who used to play on the Ladies European Tour.Bel, from Prestbury in Cheshire, trains with the England Golf U16 North West Squad. She was quick to grasp the opportunity when the WPGA opened up entry to this season’s one day events to U16 and U18 girls from the regional squads.She was one of five squad players in the field and was joined in the top 10 by the new Durham ladies’ champion, Jessica Hall (Bishop Auckland), who tied for seventh place with a 74. Bel reached the turn at three-over par but came home in a sizzling four-under on the back nine.Her performance underlines a great run of form. She teamed up with Emily McBurney, also 14, (Royal Liverpool) to win the Northern Ladies’ Foursomes when it was held last month at Ringway in Cheshire. Then, just over a week ago, she was runner-up in the Cheshire ladies’ championship. Along the way she’s cut her handicap this season from 4.7 to 2.5.Her father, Paul Wardle, remarked: “Bel has definitely benefitted from being in the North West Squad and I think the hard work over the winter is paying off. She’s been very consistent this season.”Rebecca Wood, the England Golf Women’s Performance Manager, commented: “I want to congratulate all five players for taking up the chance to tee it up with the professionals in this first event and it is fantastic to see two players finishing in the top ten.“I have had enthusiastic comments back from players and I want to take the opportunity to thank the PGA again for providing this unique experience to the girls. Apart from the second event at Little Aston GC on Monday 19th May, there are spaces in the remaining events for regional U16 and U18 players to snap up and they should contact the Performance office for further details.”Click here for full results.last_img read more

Cop Serves As A Liaison To Latino Community

first_imgStory and photo by John BurtonRED BANK – “It wasn’t easy. We didn’t have much,” said Sgt. Juan Sardo, with the Red Bank Police Department, remembering back when he and his family arrived in the U.S. and settled in the borough.Those who come from other countries, just like anyone else, travel different paths in life. Some take on the challenge of starting and operating a business. Some continue to work for others. Sardo helps others as a police officer. And with his background, language skill and sensibilities stemming from his background, he serves as a voice for many in the increasingly diverse community that Red Bank has become.Sardo, who is assigned to the patrol division, is among a number of the 42-member department who are fluent in Spanish, assisting the large Latino population that has been growing for the last approximately 20 years.Sardo serves as the department’s liaison to the Latino community, often taking on the responsibility of communicating with the community putting forth department information that would benefit those residents. That mission is often done in cooperation with St. Anthony of Padua Roman Catholic Church, 121 Bridge Ave., which is responsible for a considerable amount of outreach to the Hispanic community.It’s Sardo’s own life story that provides an added layer of insight into the plight of the recently arrived.“With my background I can communicate better with the community,” he offered. “Not only communicate,” he continued, “I can relate to them.”Sardo was just 6, and didn’t speak a word of English, when he and his family left Venezuela for the U.S. His father, an Italian national, was a soldier in the Italian Army during World War II, who immigrated to the South American country following Italy’s surrender and married and started a family.In 1979 the family moved and settled in Red Bank. However, Sardo’s parents divorced and his father moved away and is no longer in the family picture.“It was really hard,” for him, his mother, Dianora and his three siblings, Sardo remembered. “You had to adjust to a different language,” and culture. Sardo acknowledged the language barrier led him to having to repeat a primary school grade at a time when there weren’t many Latinos in the community.“She raised the four of us cleaning houses in Rumson,” with the money not going far enough, Sardo said. “There was a lot of sacrifice.” School shopping meant visiting the former Monarc thrift shop on Monmouth Street.Growing up, though, “My mom instilled in us really good values.” And that included an appreciation of hard work, he said. “We learned responsibility quick.”At 12 he got his first job learning to make pizzas at Luigi’s Pizzeria and went on to working in just about everywhere in town where pizza was made, including Mr. Pizza Slice and The Brothers, still operating today.Today he continues that work ethic, by using his off time from the department working as a real estate agent. In the early 2000s he and another officer opened a hair salon, Que Bonita, on Shrewsbury Avenue, with Spanish speaking stylists, catering to the Hispanic community. They sold the salon a few years later.Sardo has been with the department for 19 years, working in various bureaus. “There’s no better work than police work, for this,” he said, where he can offer help and protection for the entire community.He mentors every other week at Lunch Break soup kitchen and food pantry, helping community members having difficulty making their way. “This is what I’m all about,” noting his strong religious faith, instilled in him by his mother, has been a grounding influence for much of his life. He is a member of the First Assembly of God Church, Shrewsbury, where Sardo transports some children to Bible study.In 2005 he received the Law Enforcement Award from the NAACP of Greater Red Bank; and in 2015 he was inducted into the Red Bank Regional High School’s Distinguished Alumni Hall of Fame.The Hispanic community can be victims of crime, taken advantage of by the unscrupulous and dangerous. However, “They have a fear coming forward reporting a crime,” especially those whose who may not be here undocumented.That’s not an issue for local law enforcement, he tries to make clear to the community. “Policy is we don’t ask,” about immigration status in that context, he explained. If it’s not exactly a law enforcement issue, he explains, what can people do to address it.“For me there’s only one race – the human race,” he said.Sardo has been married for 20 years to his wife Nohemi, has two children, Juan Jr., 13, and Javier, 10, and lives in Ocean Township.He may not have been born here, but Sardo has come to appreciate his home. “This is the best country in the world. My country.“I thank God every day that my old man decided to come here.”last_img read more


first_imgRAFAEL BEJARANO, LUMINANCE, FOURTH AS EVEN MONEY FAVORITE:  “She broke a little slow, so I didn’t have the position I wanted to have early.  She tried really hard, but those fillies didn’t stop.”  TRAINER QUOTES JOCKEY QUOTES            STEWART ELLIOTT, GLORYZAPPER, WINNER: “She ran really well in her last out (her only start on turf) but she just didn’t have that turn of foot on the grass, like a lot of grass horses do. Phil knew it and said he would put her back on the dirt and shorten her up a bit. That’s what she’s good at.“With the way she ran today…she got tested and she fought to win, so I could see the Breeders’ Cup as a possibility.”             PHIL D’AMATO, GLORYZAPPER, WINNER: “She gave us a good performance. She’s always a fighter, she always pushes on. Stewart did a great job. The four (favored Luminance) broke a little slow so Stewart put Gloryzapper into the race early and she fought everybody off.“I love her in this scenario. When she has her head in front of the rest of the opposition, she loves the fight. She loves to hold them off. Passing horses, she’s just ok, but she loves to be in the mix and fight them off.“We’ll see what’s next. Maybe the Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Sprint but, we’ll see. We’ll see how she comes out of it.” NOTES: The winning owners are A.C. Hebert, of Vinton, Louisiana, who races as Hebert Bloodstock, Andrew Leggio of Metairie, Louisiana and Peter Peluso of Glen Head, New York.last_img read more

UN declares 18 July Mandela Day

first_img12 November 2009The United Nations has declared 18 July “Nelson Mandela International Day”, in recognition of the former South African president’s contribution to global peace and freedom.The resolution, to commemorate Mandela’s long-standing commitment to promoting conflict resolution, race relations, human rights, reconciliation and gender equality, was adopted by the 192-member UN General Assembly on Wednesday.Nelson Mandela International Day will be observed annually on 18 July, Mandela’s birthday, starting in 2010, when the former anti-apartheid leader will turn 92 years old.By adopting the resolution, the UN expressed its appreciation for “a great man who had suffered for the sake of people everywhere”, said General Assembly president Ali Treki, recognizing Mandela’s 27-year imprisonment, most of which was spent in the notorious Robben Island prison off the coast of Cape Town.After his release from prison in 1990, Mandela became the first president elected in a fully representative democratic ballot in post-apartheid South Africa, holding office from 1994 to 1999 in accordance with the country’s Constitution.Speaking at an event to mark Mandela’s 91st birthday in New York this year, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said Mandela was “a living embodiment of the highest values of the United Nations.“He inspired people across the world, and across the generations,” Ban said, paying tribute to Mandela’s contributions to a democratic, multi-racial South Africa and his tireless efforts to promote peace and human dignity worldwide.“May we all continue to benefit from his wisdom, his good works and good humour for many years to come.”Source: United Nationslast_img read more
