Segal doubles his pleasure at Group II championships

first_imgHornet sweeps 1,600-3,200; teammate Kwong wins high jump By tim morris Staff Writer Craig Segal had a near-perfect cross country season. The Holmdel High School harrier was undefeated through November, collecting a bevy of championships, including Monmouth County, Shore Conference and Central Jersey Group II. He even won his division at the famed Van Cortlandt Park in New York City. The undefeated season came to an end at the Group II state championships where he ran second to Haddonfield’s Chris Platt. There was plenty of consolation for Segal, as his Hornets upset Haddonfield for the state championship. However, that missed opportunity kept gnawing at him. The NJSIAA Indoor Group II state championships on Jan. 20 at Princeton University provided Segal with a second chance, and he made the most of it. The Hornet left Jadwin Gymnasium with not one, but two state championships, winning both the 1,600 (4:31.37) and 3,200 (9:49.76) meter races. He duplicated the double he had turned in just three days before at the county indoor championships at Red Bank Regional High School. “The cross country season motivated me,” Segal explained. “It did not end on a high note for me. I felt I had to win.” Mission accomplished as he easily ran away from the best Group II runners in the state to win his double. Both times surpassed what he ran at the county championships It was another first for Segal as he became the first Hornet to win an indoor state championship. “It feels good,” he said of the accomplishment. Winning a distance double in any championship meet isn’t easy, but what made Segal’s feat much more distinct was the lack of racing prior to the Group II state championships. Unlike the outdoor season, where runners can use dual meets for training, they jump right into the fire. The Monmouth County Championships were the first individual races of the year for Segal and then just three days later, he was at Princeton running for a state title. “It was pretty tough without any preparation,” he pointed out. “Both races were pretty difficult. I was relying on my strength from cross country.” Segal hinted that he will not double Sunday at the NJSIAA Indoor Meet of Champions, also in Princeton. he has not decided on. Which event he will participate in, the 1,600 or 3,200, “It’s going to depend on how I feel which race I run,” he said. Thanks to Segal’s double, Holmdel almost won the Group II title. The Hornets were ended by a single point, 37-36, by Bridgeton. High jumper Jonathan Kwong gave Holmdel 10 big points, joining his teammate as a state champion. Kwong defeated Monmouth Regional’s Barry Bostwick by virtue of fewer misses as both cleared 6-2. The Hornets got six more points from Charles DiFazio, who was third at 6-0. Matawan’s Uzoma Orji was second in the Group II shot put to his Shore rival Adam Kuehl of Monmouth, 57-9 3/4-54-5. Erison Hurtault, the county 400 champion, was sixth in the 400 (52.23) that was won by Scott’s Lance Wigfall (49.89). Latasha Dixon was third in the girls’ Group II 400 for the Huskies in 1:01.36. Bridgeton’s Shameka Speed was the Group winner in 59.03. The first six finishers in each event at the Group meets, plus five wilds cards taken from among all of the Groups, qualified for Sunday’s MOC. At the Group III state championships, Middletown South’s girls were fourth with 24 points. The Eagles showed their balance by scoring in a number of events. Nicole Lombardy was third in the 1,600 (5:10.36) behind the amazing Trotter twins of RBR, Amanda (5:05.71) and Katy (5:09.62). Kolleen McCauley was fourth in the 400 (1:00.05) which went to Halimah Bashir of Willingboro in a quick 58.9. Lauren Dike (2:24.12) and Tina Morrison (2:24.59) were fifth and sixth in the 800 that went to Katy Trotter (2:18.94). Lindsay Dike was fourth in the high jump (5-2) won by Oakcrest’s Lauren Graf (5-4). The Eagles’ 1,600-meter relay team of McCauley, Morrison, Lombardy and Lauren Dike ran a 4:11.36 in third place behind Woodrow Wilson (4:10.57 and Willingboro (4:10.57). The Group IV championships were held on Saturday in Princeton. Christian Brothers Academy’s Jeff Peterson came up with his best indoor race of the season in finishing second to Shannon Sherrer of Vineland in the 800 meters. Shannon cranked out a 1:57.21 on the 200-meter Jadwin oval with Peterson second in 1:57.56. The Colts’ Devin Barry was third in the 55-meter high hurdles (7.83) behind Trenton Central’s Irving Stills (7.74). CBA’s 1,600-meter relay team turned in a 3:29.98 and finished fifth. Vineland edged Eastern, 3:27.75-3:27.77, to win the Group title. CBA’s 16 points put the Colts in a tie for seventh place. Vineland was one point better than Eastern, 35-34, for the team state championship. In Group I, Mater Dei’s Lily Doyle extended her season to the MOC by finishing fourth in the high jump (5-0). The Group winner was Rebecca Baskinger of Butler (5-4). Before Sunday’s MOC at Princeton, area track and field athletes will have one more competition to get themselves ready, the Shore Conference Championships tonight at Red Bank Regional. This meet brings the best from Monmouth and Ocean counties together and the competition is as good as a Group state championship. Segal will use tonight’s meet to help him make the decision as to which race to run at the MOC. The meet will start at 5 p.m.last_img read more

Natasha Profeiro: Mastering the art of unique greeting cards creation

first_imgA few years after moving to the city, she began babysitting and it was then she decided that she needed to be more serious about her education. She sent herself  back to school and later began a career as a Spanish teacher at School of the Nations in Berbice.“Teaching was never something I really wanted to do. I tried many things and it just never fitted. I lost interest very quickly and one day I woke up and came with the idea of making handmade greeting cards. The first thing I did was to buy some cardboard and I used to cut them with a knife on a glass table and I made some cards. My friends and family bought,” she said.After she made the first set of cards, Natasha was encouraged to pursue her newest venture so she made the necessary investments and began her journey. She bought a machine to help her cut and shape cardstock she would use to create her masterpieces.Her work began to speak for itself and from there, it started to spiral to greater heights.“I love Christmas, so at first, I started with just Christmas cards, but then I started to make wedding invitations and all kinds of cards. Everything I made handmade after that. Anything you think I can do, I do. I have always been a crafty person and as a kid, I would always make cards with paper.“Christmas is the only holiday I prepare for and when I started making cards, I didn’t focus on birthdays and anniversaries so I later branched off into those areas.”So, if you are looking for a special kind of card for any occasion, particularly for the holiday season, be sure to ensure that it is from Natasha. She does not disappoint. “When I give someone a card, it is not just a card. It is art. It is unique in such a way that it becomes part of your home. It becomes something that you can put in your home. You can put it on your mantle or you can make it an ornament. My cards are not just something you read and then put away, I make them in such a way that they should be displayed,” says Natasha Profeiro.Natasha ProfeiroNatasha has been making handcrafted greeting cards for a number of years now and has cemented herself as one of the go-to creators in Guyana. If you have had the chance to receive a card made by Natasha, then you know that it ups the card game.Born in Venezuela of Guyanese heritage, Natasha moved to the North-West District in Region One (Barima-Waini) when she was nine. Her grandfather had just passed away and her father had to return to Guyana to take over the family business.Not knowing one word of  English, Natasha’s life was changed when she came to Guyana. She had to overcome the language barrier, but she persisted. At the age of 13, she moved from the North-West District to Georgetown, but because of her difficulty understanding the English language, Natasha did not really pursue schooling.last_img read more

Anxious Debuchy waits on surgery call

first_imgDebuchy’s reaction when he was carried off suggested that the injury was serious, potentially a fracture, but the 29-year-old has allayed those fears, although he did reveal ligament damage, which could see him go under the knife.The former Newcastle defender, who joined Arsene Wenger’s side ahead of the new season, wrote on Twitter: “No fracture but one broken ligament … I have to wait until Friday in order to know if I must have surgery.”The injury to his compatriot has added to Wenger’s defensive woes, with Nacho Monreal also currently on the sidelines with a back injury, while teenager Hector Bellerin was drafted in at right-back in the 2-0 defeat to Borussia Dortmund on Matchday 1 in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday after Calum Chambers was laid low by tonsillitis.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000LONDON, England, Sept. 18-Arsenal right-back Mathieu Debuchy will discover on Friday whether he requires surgery on the ankle ligament injury he suffered against Manchester City.The France international had to leave the field on a stretcher after sustaining the injury towards the end of the Gunners’ 2-2 draw with City at the Emirates on Saturday.last_img read more

Gonzo’s got a Monica problem

first_imgWhy can’t these Monicas just keep their mouths shut: Monica Goodling, the former Justice official who resigned under a cloud of controversy in the federal prosecutor firing scandal, testified this past week that she may have done something illegal by asking judicial applicants their political leanings. “But I would still consider hiring them if they were a Democrat,” admitted Goodling. “I just wouldn’t hire them if they voted Democratic.” Justice Department add: After Goodling’s testimony, members of Congress said they were considering issuing a no-confidence resolution against Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. President George W. Bush said the no-confidence vote would only increase his confidence in Gonzales. “In fact, if Gonzales admits to wrongdoing and is found guilty in a court of law,” said the president, “I’m giving him a raise.” Depends what the meaning of `never’ is: Congressional Democrats, who for months have been saying that they would never submit an Iraq war funding bill without a timeline for withdrawal, submitted an Iraq war funding bill without a timeline for withdrawal. Democrats claim the bill still has teeth. “Of course, the teeth are actually dentures,” said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, “and even they are rotting.” “We still consider it a victory,” said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. “Hey, stop laughing!” “American (alien) idol:” Simon Cowell has announced plans for a countrywide search to find someone who actually likes the proposed immigration bill. “With President Bush and Senator Kennedy the only two we know of who back the bill,” said Cowell, “we might need two years to find enough contestants to get the show started.” “I’m only being honest,” he added. Former President Jimmy Carter said he was misquoted when he reportedly said that President Bush was the worst president in history. “What I actually meant was that President Bush is the worst president in English. His math isn’t all that good, either.” Ain’t technology great? For those whose TIVOs shut off before the last five minutes of “American Idol” Thursday when the winner was named, the winner for 2007 is … oops, sorry. Column ran long. into Steve Young is the author of “Great Failures of the Extremely Successful” (www.greatfailure.com).160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The Gospel according to “The View:” In an attempt to get Rosie O’Donnell to shut up, “The View’s” Elisabeth Hasselbeck took thence a stone from her shepherd’s bag, put it in her trusty sling, and slung it, so that the stone sank deep into O’Donnell’s forehead, felling the colossal former comic. Unconscious, O’Donnell’s mouth wouldst not cease braying so that Hasselbeck stood on top of O’Donnell, drawing her sword from out of its sheath and lancing O’Donnell’s mouth away from its mooring. Whilst held above Hasselbeck’s head in seeming triumph, the severed orifice still spake, saying, “I’m right.” Let us pray. Getting ready for the inevitable: With the pump price of gas rising 37 cents in the last month, including 11 straight days in May, the California Lottery Commission announced plans to offer the top prize in the Super Lotto in cash or a gallon of gas … whichever is more. They’re just too fabulous: The military has kicked out 58 Arabic-language experts because they were gay. “Sure, we’re short on Arab translators,” said Gen. Hednbut. “But what if one of these guys translates something gay and we don’t even know? I don’t read gay. Or what if someone catches gay from them? Or what if they start playing Liza Minnelli CDs in the barracks? I just don’t want to be responsible.” And an hour later you need to march in another parade: For the first time in the history of the Rose Parade, China will be represented with a float on New Year’s Day, 2008. “The float that will come from either column A or column B is not actually considered a float,” said parade coordinator Rose Petal. “It’s more of a green tea.” Gore in the balance: Former presidential candidate and Vice President Al Gore is said to be considering entering the Democratic primary. An Internet vote taken last week showed Gore would win a race with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. “Of course, he’d win a vote on the Internet,” said a Clinton staffer. “If Hillary invented the Internet, she’d win, too.” last_img

Watch Out WiFi, Here Comes MiFi

first_imgRole of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement The pocket sized MiFi is capable of connecting users and devicesIn addition to being a portable Internet hotspot, the EVDO blog notes that the MiFi has an onboard Linux processor capable of hosting software applications and additional content storage capabilities via MicroSD. Novatel claims the internal battery will provide over forty hours standby and up to four hours of active use on a single charge, and that certain configurations will support applications like auto VPN, automatic syncing of e-mail and remote management capabilities.The MiFi will be available in the first quarter of 2009 through a variety of retail outlets and Engadget reports the MiFi should be priced under $300. Novatel Wireless last week announced it will release the MiFi, a portable wireless router that will deliver wireless 3G data network access to multiple users in a small area. Much the same size as a credit card, the sleek looking MiFi will let users select access to EVDO or HSPA high speed data networks.This “cloud” of high-speed Internet connectivity that MiFi offers can be shared not only between users, but between devices such as laptops, cameras, gaming devices and multimedia players. Perfect for carpooling and relieving boredom in the back seat during that long road trip with kids – think Nintendo DS or Sony PSP – the MiFi will support up to five users simultaneously.

first_imgA retired police officer was arrested Saturday after a shooting outside of a Home Depot store in Riverside, California. It started when a man was allegedly running out of the big box store shoplifting.

He didn’t and was driving away when the retired police officer fired two times at the car. Police say one of the bullets grazed the suspect’s neck. He then drove himself to a nearby medical clinic where workers then called police.- Sponsor – The police, looking into the shooting, later determined it was not justified. They arrested the retired police officer for assault with a deadly weapon.
