One of the most interesting weather forecasts came at the end of 2021 when the pig spleen forecast was released telling us what to expect weather-wise this winter and summer.

Jeff Woodward is the hog spleen forecaster at Cobler Farm near Gull Lake, Saskatchewan, and his predictions have proven to be quite accurate over the past year.

Again this year, predictions came from a single spleen from a free-range happy pig obtained from Jaime and Clint Cobler, raised near Gull Lake, Saskatchewan. Several Rates were examined, and this was by far the most revealing.

On December 20, 2021, the Prognosis was completed at my brother’s. No entertainment was present due to Covid restrictions. But to ensure accuracy, some spirits, namely aquavit, were tasted in the traditional Scandinavian way.

For a refresher course, in order to make a prediction, the spleen is divided into six equal parts, representing the months of the year from January to June. According to tradition, you cannot make a forecast outside of this time frame, or it breaks the rules. Violating Viking lore risks not entering Valhalla, so charlatans who might claim to make similar predictions might be cautious.

There is fat on the spleen which, when interpreted correctly, will tell you the temperature and weather forecast for the coming year. Any abnormalities in the spleen, such as bumps or scars, indicate cold weather or a significant weather event at that time.

Last year, the spleen had very strange characteristics, and we did indeed have an odd year with all the shenanigans in the USA with Donald Trump at the start of the year and with Covid in general. This year’s spleen is pretty mundane, meaning we’ll see a gradual return to a more normal way of life as we get past or get used to all the issues of Covid 19.

Based on the fat in this spleen, the winter and spring of 2022 will be colder than we are used to, and we will have more precipitation than normal.

Bear in mind this is a pig of climate change so even if the temperatures show colder than normal weather the elders will say it’s nothing compared to what we had used to living. It will start with below normal temperatures in January, but warm up considerably just before the middle of the month. After that it will get progressively colder and generally stay colder until the end of April. May and June will be about normal but will have little to no precipitation. Although it will be colder than normal, temperatures will be turbulent with drastic changes from the warm spells framed by cold and wind.

January February

January will start colder than usual for about the first ten days, as temperatures will remain very cold until about January 12th. After that, a significant warming trend will last about a week, then temperatures will gradually decrease again. Temperatures will drop each day until the end of the month, when they will warm slightly and stay warm for a few days. Abnormally cold temperatures on January 22 are to be expected.

The cooling trend will be accompanied by light snowfall and will add heavier snowfalls on January 26th. Temperatures will remain cold towards the end of January and into February.

Temperatures in February will gradually improve as the month progresses. Expect a warming trend on February 5 and 9, where snow and rain are again possible. There will be snow again around February 20, which could become a blizzard and again at the very end of the month and at the beginning of March. Expect chilly winds with the cold weather.

March April

March will start with snow at the beginning of the month and then again in the middle of the month. There will be one or two very hot days around March 12 which will be followed by snow in the next few days. In general, temperatures will gradually improve throughout the month, but it will be cold to colder than normal.

April will see continued improvement with temperatures remaining below normal but not as significant as previous months. Expect another episode of snow around April 7. April will tend to see average to above average temperatures until the very end of the month, then it will cool down considerably around April 27th. The spleen shows a major episode of snow and rain around April. 21.

May June

At the end of April, temperatures will drop very quickly to mild and more normal temperatures. There are episodes of rain in early May around May 2 and again around May 22 but shortly after, until the very end of June. June will be a normal month in temperature but dry until the end of the month.

“I used to cough to mask the sound of a fart, but now I fart to mask the sound of a cough.”

Noida/Ghaziabad: The Congress released its first list of 125 candidates, which included nominations for three seats each in Noida and Ghaziabad. For the Noida seat, the party has nominated Pankhuri Pathak, deputy chairman of the social media cell of the All India Congress Committee. Deepak Bhati Chotiwala, the national secretary of the Youth Congress, received the ticket from the Gurjar-dominated Dadri seat while district chairman Manoj Chaudhary was nominated from Jewar.
Pathak has been active in student politics since her days at Hansraj College, Delhi University. But she was then with Samajwadi Party. She has been on the student wing of SP since 2010, but moved to Congress in 2018.
It will be a tough fight for Pathak at the Noida headquarters, which is currently being held by BJP’s Pankaj Singh, the son of Union Minister Rajnath Singh. Singh in 2017 won the Noida seat by a huge margin. This time, the BJP has yet to announce its candidates for one of the seats.
Pathak, however, has been laying his groundwork over the past two years — raising issues about homebuyers, civic amenities and deteriorating law and order both on social media and on the pitch. When asked how confident she was of winning Noida, which is considered a safe seat for the BJP, Pankhuri said, “No seat should ever be without competition. No one should think he can’t be defeated. During all these years, the local MP has completely disappeared from his constituency. People had to travel to Delhi to meet him. Chotiwala, who will compete from the Gurjar-dominated Dadri seat, is himself a member of the community. Originally from Bisrakh, Chotiwala had in June 2021 distributed Gangajal door-to-door in the Dadri region as part of his “Gangajal sampark yatra”. His survey board will revolve around three questions. “The first is that the authorities do not pay attention to the problems of farmers. Second, although the region is an IT hub, they have failed to create jobs. The third problem is the authoritarianism of the builders. People here are troubled by backlogs, fraud and lack of records,” Chotiwala said. Chaudhary will also face a tough fight in Jewar constituency. Four-time MP Avtar Singh Bhadana is fighting for the SP-RLD alliance in Jewar, which is currently owned by BJP’s Dhirendra Singh.
Chaudhary, who is also part of the Jewar Kisan Sangharsh Samiti, has made his voice heard on different issues concerning farmers and around the international airport project.
Chaudhary has taken up the cause of four times compensation for farmers whose land was taken for the project. “The farmers were compensated by mutual agreement. Unemployment, cancellation of Dankaur as a block and damaged roads are also significant issues here,” he said.
In Ghaziabad, the party trusted the elders by announcing the candidates for three of the five seats in the assembly. For Muradnagar, Congress nominated Bijendra Yadav (53), an old hobbyhorse who has been with the party since 1988. “I have been in Congress for three decades. From an ordinary NSUI worker, I rose to the level of district president and AICC member,” Yadav said. “I am a known figure in Muradnagar. People have seen my work all these years and I have a good chance of winning this time,” he added.
Yadav is backed by a campaign from state party leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra. “Priyanka Gandhi’s campaign has stirred up the right kind of sentiment among us and exposed the BJP on several issues such as rising prices, unemployment and women’s safety. All the BJP has done is divide society along community lines,” he added.
Yameen Malik was sent from Loni, which has a large Muslim voter base. Malik is also the district chairman of the minority congressional cell. For the Ghaziabad seat, Congress gave the ticket to Sushant Goyal. The 48-year-old comes from a traditional Congress family and is the son of Surendra Prakash Goyal, who held the seat in 2002 and again in 2004 as a Lok Sabha candidate.

Riley McGree is set to join Ange Postecoglou and Tom Rogic at Celtic, with the Scottish giants becoming favorites to sign the 23-year-old Socceroos midfielder.

The former Adelaide United star McGree is currently with Major League Soccer expansion club of the United States, Charlotte FC, after securing a successful loan agreement with England second division team Birmingham City.

McGree had been linked with a return to England, with Middlesbrough among those reportedly interested, but Postecoglou’s Celtic are now seen as his most likely destination.

Several outlets in the UK have reported Celtic interest with transfer fees ranging from Stg 2million (AU $ 3.8million) to AU $ 3million (AU $ 5.7million) intended to secure McGree’s transfer to Parkhead.

Postecoglou called McGree to the Socceroos squad in March 2017, but the South Australian was an unused player for the World Cup qualifiers against Iraq and the United Arab Emirates.

McGree made his national team debut last year, as a substitute in a 3-0 win over Kuwait in June.

He has since made seven Socceroos appearances and became a fan favorite during his time at Birmingham, scoring three goals in 30 appearances before his loan spell ended in December.

Postecoglou have already signed Japanese duo Reo Hatate and Yosuke Ideguchi in the January transfer window, giving the Hoops boss plenty of options in the midfield – including ace Socceroos Rogic – ahead of the second half of the season.

Passing the hammer: unofficial mayor of Hazelwood drops the mantle | News https://vintagetype.com/passing-the-hammer-unofficial-mayor-of-hazelwood-drops-the-mantle-news/ Sat, 08 Jan 2022 09:41:00 +0000 https://vintagetype.com/passing-the-hammer-unofficial-mayor-of-hazelwood-drops-the-mantle-news/ It was a daring daydream for a little girl in the 1950s, but Mary Ann Enloe always knew she would one day be mayor of Hazelwood.

It was a daring daydream for a little girl in the 1950s, but Mary Ann Enloe always knew she would one day be mayor of Hazelwood.

It was in his blood after all. She grew up listening to her father talk about city politics in the living room, on the porch or in the aisles of Ralph’s Cash Grocery.

“Dad always said it was the best place in the world to play politics,” recalls Enloe, whose father was mayor for 27 years, until the day he died.

What she didn’t know, of course, was that she would wear the hat for four decades, long after Hazelwood’s merger with Waynesville.

While Hazelwood ceased to be his own town in 1995, Enloe continued to wear the mantle of unofficial mayor – whether it was an institutional knowledge repository for the town’s seal keeper still in his possession. .

Now, at 81, she has decided it is time. It’s time to pass the torch to the next generation. And she couldn’t have found a better champion to lead Hazelwood into a new era.

At the bar “

Alex McKay may only be 34 years old, but he’s already known as Haywood County’s greatest historian. He is a prolific private collector of historical documents and tangible artefacts, but more importantly, a collector of stories, amassed for countless hours sitting with elders, soaking up their stories of life at the time.

McKay’s roots run deep in Hazelwood.

“All of my family have been here for generations,” he said. “They knew everything about everyone and everything that was going on. “

As fate willed it, he became a neighbor of Enloe a few years ago. The two soon found themselves spending afternoons on Enloe’s Porch – the same porch where Enloe’s father courted as a child.

“They often came to see Dad to discuss business. That’s what whetted my appetite for politics, ”recalls Enloe.

McKay had previously taken on Hazelwood’s lead role, ranging from personal wrapping streetlights with corn husks in the fall to heads of Waynesville speaking nicely for new strings of Christmas lights.

Most importantly, he’s a champion of maintaining Hazelwood’s identity.

“I want to live in a strong community. I know Hazelwood is that, it’s always been that, ”McKay said. “All these years since the merger, and we still feel like we are our own people.”

Last month, Enloe decided it was time to pass the unofficial gavel of the mayor to McKay.

“It’s exciting to see what he does and how well he does it. He’s what we need, ”Enloe said. “His heart is in it. “

Independent series

Enloe’s political career did not end when Hazelwood closed its doors as a town. She then reported to State House, County Commissioner and Alderman for Waynesville.

She won some and she lost some. But she never stopped fighting, getting up the day after an election defeat and stepping straight back into the ring.

“I always saw myself as a voice for those who thought they had no voice. People have always been my priority, ”said Enloe.

Enloe wasn’t the type to mince words and wasn’t afraid to rock the boat when needed. Intrepid to be the only woman at the table, her presence commanded and people listened when she spoke, even if they didn’t like what he had to say.

She attributes her strength and resilience in part to her father, Dutch Fisher.

“I was my father’s son,” said Enloe, who was one of the three sisters.

Yet the glass ceiling was omnipresent.

“My campaign slogan as County Commissioner was ‘the best man for the job is a woman.’ But some of them couldn’t handle it, ”she said.

Her husband died when her daughter was only 5 years old and she never remarried. As mayor, Enloe often had Libby chasing her at city council meetings, where she sat quietly in the audience while her mother ruled the city.

“There were people who I later found out that they didn’t approve of a woman doing this sort of thing,” Enloe said.

Enloe didn’t wear a tie, of course, but instead flaunted her femininity with an elegant fabric bodice on her lapel – a plethora of them to coordinate colors with any outfit. The signature look matched her larger-than-life personality and followed her throughout her political career, first as mayor of Hazelwood and later as county commissioner.

“The night I was sworn in as mayor, someone sent me an orchid to wear. I decided it was a good look for me, ”said Enloe. “I still have a big, full picnic basket. “

A born fixer

While it has always been in her blood, Enloe was drawn to local politics sooner than she imagined. She was working at Dayco as a single mother in the early 1980s when whispers of corruption at City Hall landed on her doorstep.

Someone need to make Something, people implored him.

“So I answered the call,” Enloe said. “After I was sworn in, the first thing I did was take all the books and paperwork home and lay them out under my grand piano. I got under that piano and started looking and it just didn’t suit me. I quickly understood what I had found.

She forwarded the findings to the district prosecutor, which led to charges and a criminal conviction – including jail time for the author.

“To this day people still hate me because he was a boy from his hometown,” Enloe said.

However, Enloe’s skin is thick like a rhino. Once, at a Candidate Commissioners Forum in the 2000s, Enloe unabashedly told the crowded audience: “Some of you love me, and some of you wouldn’t mind if I fell. died here on the spot. “

Enloe never encountered a problem that she did not want to solve. In third grade, she began to wonder why the Hazelwood School didn’t have an American flag on its pole. It didn’t seem fair.

“So I did some research, I talked to people and I said, ‘How do I get a flag? “They told me to write a letter to the Woodmen of the World,” Enloe said.

The school soon had its flag.

“If I saw a problem, I wanted to fix it,” Enloe said. ” I’m always like that. It’s hard for me to tell that something is not in my boat.

The best of times, the worst of times

Enloe fondly recalls her childhood in the heyday of Hazelwood’s blue collar workers, when factory whistles rang out across town.

“I absolutely lived in the drugstore,” Enloe said. “We used to always say ‘You can do anything in Hazelwood except be buried.’ We don’t have a graveyard, but other than that we had everything you could want on Main Street.

She still remembers her first salary at Dayco.

“The first thing I did was go to Ms. Byson’s fashion store and open an account,” she said.

During Enloe’s tenure as mayor, however, Hazelwood had some tough times. The buzz of the main factories in Hazelwood began to die down and the backbone of the city collapsed.

“You couldn’t run a city on our tax base. There were times when I couldn’t meet the payroll, ”Enloe said.

The merger with Waynesville was the only way forward.

“Dad told me shortly before he died, ‘The day will come when Hazelwood will have to come under the wings of Waynesville,'” recalls Enloe.

Of course, she hadn’t realized at the time, in 1972, that the day would come on her watch. It was a tough pill to swallow, and a solution some still blame him for.

“There are still people in Hazelwood who don’t understand why I did what I had to do,” she said. “We just didn’t have the money. “

The rebirth of Noisetier

Hazelwood has experienced a resurgence over the past decade. The storefronts are full again, the sidewalks are bustling, and he’s even brought back his own Christmas parade.

Merchants of course played a vital role, but so did McKay. He never misses a meeting of Waynesville City Council, its silent presence bridging the gap and calling back ‘the other side of town’.

“He knows who to talk to to get things done,” Enloe said.

In typical Haywood County fashion, the two are linked. The two claim ancestry from the surnames of the Hazelwood mainstays – the McKays and the Fisher – who married along the way.

“My grandmother Fisher and her great-grandfather McKay were brother and sister. Guess that makes us second cousins? »Said Enloe.

“Second cousins ​​twice distant,” McKay interjected.

As the two swap stories about Hazelwood’s early days are passed down from loved ones, McKay prefaces them with things like “his grandmother and my great aunt.”

The two first met at a family funeral.

“Alex’s mom made a point of finding me and said ‘I want you to meet my son.’ I was just tickled. He was so handsome, ”Enloe said.

McKay, who is always on the hunt for historical puzzles, will call on Enloe for his institutional knowledge. Only, he does not call, still believing in the lost art of going to visit.

“Normally I just ran over there,” McKay said.

“I love it when Alex comes to see me,” added Enloe, who has outlived all of his close family. “We can just talk about Hazelwood forever. “

Notwithstanding the variations Covid-19 spits out at us as it tries to play spoilers with leagues and championships, among other more serious stuff, the march of time to another year means we sit down to determine who will lead. roost in the Gaelic world of 2022?

Since football normally includes all of Kilkenny counties, not to mention New York and London, it makes sense to start there rather than the 10 County competition that passes for the All Ireland Hurling Championship.

After Dublin’s unprecedented dominance to win six successive titles before succumbing to Mayo in the All Ireland semi-final last year, many questions remain unanswered.

For example, can Tyrone kick off and turn Sam Maguire’s fourth win into straight wins, given that they’ve beaten all of Dublin’s big teams by annexing the crown in 2021.

And what about Dublin? Unlike the super team Kerry of the 1970s and 1980s, which aged so long they couldn’t score for 35 minutes in the loss to Cork in 1987, the current Dublin squad have been rejuvenated almost every year. with the advent of new blood to go with established stars like Ciaran Kilkenny, James McCarthy and Brian Fenton.

Dan Morrissey of Limerick grabs the ball ahead of Robbie O’Flynn and Darragh Fitzgibbon of Cork in the All Ireland hurling final on August 22. INPHO / MORGAN TREACY

Dessie Farrell managed to win a title to add to Jim Gavin’s five, but with Jack Caffrey and Paul Mannion retiring last year, Stephen Cluxton unofficially retired along with a host of other alumni who stepped down. are withdrawn, he faced an upward trajectory to move the team forward.

However, the fact that his team – which suffered many negative reactions in training during Covid – also managed to get the longest rest in seven years in terms of the offseason may be a blessing in disguise.

I expect Farrell to see people like Brian Howard, Con O’Callaghan and Niall Scully refreshed when it comes to running opponents’ legs at Croke Park in the New Year.

That vital energy was lacking against Meath, whom they survived, and again against Mayo, which they did not.

So the warning signs were there; However, it would be foolish to rule Dublin out of these games as they still have arguably the strongest team in the country.

Tyrone’s rejuvenations without Mickey Harte under control were astonishing as co-managers Brian Dooher and Fergal Logan managed to turn bit players under the previous regime into All-Stars in their first year at the helm.

Of course, unlike Kerry or Dublin, Tyrone has to face the Ulster Championship where every match is potentially a trap. Earning this provincial title is similar to other counties winning all over Ireland, such is the level of intensity and rivalry between neighbors in this region.

There was a time when, in the event that counties canceled out in an “ordinary year of standards,” Kerry was inevitably the one to bring Sam home.

As they recently found out, that’s no longer the case as they haven’t been up to Dublin or many of the northern teams when it matters most.

So, in the event of such an emergency and despite the good work done under Peter Keane, the Kingdom County Council has pulled the rug out from under the incumbent for the past three years and installed Jack O’Connor as Head of team for the third time this millennium.

Sean O'Shea is one of the attackers who can deliver for Kerry.  INPHO / LASZLO GECZO

Sean O’Shea is one of the attackers who can deliver for Kerry. INPHO / LASZLO GECZO

In some ways, it’s hard to blame them as O’Connor has always delivered the goods both at the minor level and above when his county came to call them.

O’Connor was ratified alongside former stars Micheál Quirke and Diarmuid Murphy as selectors, with Paddy Tally also on board.

With Jack in charge, Kerry won the All-Irelands in 2004, 2006 and 2009 while losing runners-up in 2005 and 2011.

County President Tim Murphy sued O’Connor while he was still Kildare’s boss, but defended his reasons for getting him back. It was tough for Keane, who got along well with a lot of players, but when you don’t win the All Irelands in Kerry, you’re on a slippery slope, right?

O’Connor doesn’t need to be told about Kerry’s public reaction to failure and success – he’s been through both situations. However, what he arguably knows better than anyone else is how to put together a squad to win an All-Ireland. He had the opportunity to review his loads in training about last month and will test them at the McGrath Cup when they start against Limerick at Austin Stack Park in early January.

It doesn’t take a rocket to realize that Kerry is missing one or two remarkable defenders like the O Se brothers of yore. They could also find a younger version of David Moran in midfield. In most counties you could argue that good players don’t grow on trees, but Kerry is an exception and without a doubt with Austin Stacks coming into their county championship one or two good players can indeed be recruited. .

If so, with Clifford brothers Sean O’Shea and Paul Geaney, they have the caliber of attackers who can deliver.

With O’Connor’s pragmatism and the experience of a vital factor in their corner, Kerry may rightly feel more entitled to enter the 2022 Championship with a better chance of winning this anytime since their Last win there are eight championships against Donegal in 2014.

I think Dublin and Kerry will feel they have something big to prove in 22 as it will be difficult for Tyrone to maintain their form in such a prolonged campaign while for Mayo … they are still doing something. surprising thing but don’t earn an All Ireland, do they?

Galway stands on the 3 row path

The hurling championship feels like it’s in the grip of a team that is there for at least a few years. Limerick has dominated the league and the championships so overwhelmingly over the past two seasons that it’s hard to see who can dismantle them.

Brian Cody has already spoiled them by achieving a lot more with his semi-final loss in 2019 – but for that, they could now aim for four in a row. However, the caliber of the howler in Kilkenny isn’t what it used to be and although Eoin Cody looks like the new TJ Reid or Henry Shefflin back in the day, the problem for his manager is that the harvests black and amber of young howlers are not as abundant as in the early 2000s when Kilkenny sought new levels of excellence in hurling.

It may be that in the end, if John Kiely’s domination of Limerick is to be ended, it will be King Henry who will do it with his new pack in Galway.

A proven winner on the field, he followed with a successful stint as manager of the Ballyhale Shamrocks by winning the All-Ireland club championship.

His arrival in Galway has generated enormous interest among players and supporters and with his skill he is confident he can turn the near-men of the past five years into the winners they were in 2017.

Waterford and Tipperary will cause ripples along the way, but neither appear to have the ability to turn this tide into an unstoppable tsunami as Cork is stuck in the Losers Corner more than they would have liked.

Clare stagnated after winning her All Ireland under Davy, while Dublin also retreated, leaving no one really to attack Treaty domination unless the Tribes managed to do so.

Colorado Rockies News: Establishing a Rocky Mountain Hall of Fame https://vintagetype.com/colorado-rockies-news-establishing-a-rocky-mountain-hall-of-fame/ Sun, 02 Jan 2022 13:00:00 +0000 https://vintagetype.com/colorado-rockies-news-establishing-a-rocky-mountain-hall-of-fame/ The Rockies have been around for almost 30 years and during that time they’ve only pulled out two numbers, have one player signed up for Cooperstown (with another on the way), and that’s about it.

The Rockies have been around for almost 30 years and during that time they’ve only pulled out two numbers, have one player signed up for Cooperstown (with another on the way), and that’s about it. After hearing that Ichiro Suzuki was going to be inducted into the Mariners Hall of Fame in 2022, I couldn’t help but think it was time for the Rockies to create their own Hall of Fame team. Over the years we’ve seen a lot of players and individuals wear purple and do amazing things for the franchise and it’s time for the club to honor these people. So, let’s try to build the framework for the Rockies Hall of Fame.

Election criteria

Service time

First and foremost in terms of eligibility is the time of service with the team. For Rockies purposes, I envision five years as the ideal minimum for serious consideration for both players and staff. Some players have had solid three-year stints in Colorado, like Michael Cuddyer, but three years is not enough for some players to be considered Hall of Fame worthy.

Distinctions / Counting statistics

In addition to service time, we will need to look at other statistical criteria for applicants. The Milwaukee Brewers have a Hall of Fame eligibility system where a candidate must meet at least one of nine conditions to be eligible to vote. I decided to simply incorporate their ideas into ours because they are very useful.

  • 2000 or more plaque appearances
  • 1,000 or more innings pitched
  • 250 or more pitched games
  • Winning the Most Valuable Player Award, Cy Young Award, Rookie of the Year Award, or Lifter of the Year Award (We’ll also keep ASG appearances and Gold awards in mind. Glove)
  • Manage a winning team
  • Be elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame (automatically included)
  • GM gets playoff appearance

While they are subject to change by appropriate action, they provide a good baseline for choosing who is eligible to be inducted into the Rockies Hall of Fame. The club could always decide on other requirements that someone should fulfill, like community service and the like, but that would be a good place to start narrowing things down to those worth inducing.

Location, location, location

Another question we need to resolve is where to put this thing. The obvious answer is finding a place in Coors Field to put it on, but that could still prove to be difficult. I’m not quite sure about the logistics and would rather leave that to those with the power and the insight, but somewhere in the central field lobby, I feel good if that was the case. Otherwise, McGregor Square could be a great place to put a Hall of Fame if it is not possible to place the exhibit in the stadium, it would be just disappointing not to have it conveniently located in the stadium like some others. teams did it.

Vote and ceremony

Regarding the vote, we can make a few options. The first is simply for the team to select the inductees themselves as they see fit. It’s the easiest fix, but we’ve seen how long it took the Rockies to take Larry Walker’s number off and we’d love to see more guys celebrated. The next option is for Colorado media members to vote on players while the club appoints a Hall of Fame committee to unanimously select non-players to induct. The final option is to publish a slate of nominees each year and allow fans to vote on who will be inducted.

The ceremony would then take place during the season at Coors Field. The Larry Walker weekend in 2021 was a perfect example of how the team can approach this type of event. Spend the weekend honoring and celebrating the players who are inducted, enjoy great promotional giveaways, listen to speeches and top it off with the unveiling of a plaque. The only other thing I ask for the celebration is that every member of the Rockies Hall of Fame receive a purple jacket. As an added bonus, host an ‘old’ game during the weekend celebration so we can track down fan favorites from the past.

The inaugural Rocky Mountain Hall of Fame class

The following is a list of people that I may have seen in the inaugural class, or would strongly consider being inducted at some point, but it is still not a complete list of people who could justify their inclusion.

Frames

  • Keli McGregor
  • Dan O’Dowd
  • Bob gebhard

Managers

Blake Street Bombers

  • Larry walker
  • Dante Bichette
  • Vinny Castile
  • Andrés Galarraga
  • Ellis Burks

Father Todd

The real number “2”

The number “5”

  • Matt Holliday
  • Carlos González

* A number retreat could also be considered. I mean the Yankees took out the number “8” twice.

Pitchers

  • Jeff Francois
  • Ubaldo Jimenez
  • Jason jennings
  • Aaron Cook
  • Jorge de la Rosa
  • Brian fuentes
  • Matt Belisle

Future inductees (after retirement)

  • Charlie blackmon
  • Trevor’s story
  • Nolan Arenado
  • DJ Le Mahieu
  • Jon gray
  • Germán Marquez

While the ideas in this article aren’t perfect, this is the concept the Rockies should start to implement. If we want even more honored guys, then build in a wall of honor that recognizes players who don’t quite meet the requirements listed in this article but still mean a lot to the team. Whatever the team’s decision, the point is that they need to better celebrate and recognize their story. We can no longer focus on just a few players and in the 2007 season we need to celebrate all of our history and remember the people who made Rocky Mountain baseball special.

What other players and individuals would you like to see in the Rockies Hall of Fame? Continue the conversation in the comments below!

2022 is finally upon us, so Bleacher Report decided to look back on the 2012 draft and rate every team. The Rockies had five players who made it to the major leagues from that draft and only one of them is still with the team. David Dahl and Eddie Butler were both first-round picks that didn’t quite work out the way the team wanted, Tom Murphy found a new home in Seattle and Matt Carasiti did his thing. The only player who has done decently is Scott Oberg, but unfortunately medical issues have put his career in jeopardy. Overall, the Rockies received a retrospective “C” for their rating.

Writing Book on Nordic Skiing History Inspires Author’s Move to Duluth https://vintagetype.com/writing-book-on-nordic-skiing-history-inspires-authors-move-to-duluth/ Fri, 31 Dec 2021 20:00:00 +0000 https://vintagetype.com/writing-book-on-nordic-skiing-history-inspires-authors-move-to-duluth/ But it wasn’t until he began research for his recently published book, “Winter’s Children: A Celebration of Nordic Skiing,” published by the University of Minnesota Press, that he, his wife and their two daughters moved of Osceola, Wisconsin, just outside of Duluth.

But it wasn’t until he began research for his recently published book, “Winter’s Children: A Celebration of Nordic Skiing,” published by the University of Minnesota Press, that he, his wife and their two daughters moved of Osceola, Wisconsin, just outside of Duluth.

The University of Minnesota Press recently published Ryan Rodgers’ book, “Winter’s Children: A Celebration of Nordic Skiing”. Steve Kuchera / Duluth News Tribune

For him, these were conversations with some of the area’s longtime skiers – Nordic ski coach Duluth East Bonnie Fuller-Kask, Korkki Nordic Ski Center co-founder Mark Helmer, Olympic ski jumper Adrian Watt. , the late Olympian and founder of Snowflake Nordic Ski Center George Hovland – who convinced him to head north in October 2020.

“It just made me think it was time to go up,” said Rodgers from his home on 10 acres of land north of Duluth which has a small network of trails for skiing and mountain biking. tires. “This is where I want to be. They think the same about this stuff. In addition, there are so many trails and the other recreational possibilities are endless.

Rodgers said he was drawn to the “philosophy of the outdoors” that he knew many others in Duluth also shared.

“It’s not about skiing. It’s about the ways to get out there and truly embrace the outdoors as a way of life – it’s skiing, hiking, biking, whatever, ”Rodgers said. “They are secondary to the ultimate goal of just being on the outside. “

And that is reflected in the book. It’s not meant to be a complete story documenting skiing, said Rodgers, “Rather, I wrote it for fun and to express the passion people have for Nordic skiing.”

The book traces the Scandinavian roots of skiing to the immigrants who brought it to the Upper Midwest. It chronicles the days when Duluth was the mecca of ski jumping with jumps at Chester Bowl, Lester Park and Fond du Lac, the decline of ski jumping after WWII and its replacement by downhill skiing. It captures the ‘cross country revolution’ of the 1960s and 1970s and the strength of the sport in the 21st century.

Archival photos are placed on most of the pages, some of which are from Adrian Watt’s private collection, a box Rodgers says he borrowed for over a year.

It started with Watt’s mother saving newspaper clippings of his accomplishments and later Watt added to them himself. The result is “at least 60 years of archival good stuff,” Watt said.

Watt, 74, who competed in ski jumping at the 1968 Winter Olympics in Grenoble, France, grew up in ski jumping at the Chester Bowl.

He said that he and all of his friends – whom he called the “old folks” of the sport – had read the book and called it “a trip down memory lane.”

“(Rodgers) would have information about someone and a name that you might have forgotten over the years,” Watt said.

And the book includes the stories of the older ‘oldies’ that Watt and his friends remember from their days of ski jumping at the Chester Bowl, such as Peter Fosseide, who still had his thick Norwegian accent and, along with Erik Judeen, helped to usher Younger skiers like Charlie Banks and George Hovland were skiing behind Fosseide and Judeen, mimicking their form, Rodgers wrote.

“There were a lot of colorful characters, let’s put it that way,” Watt said.

“As soon as someone picked up their skis, they would jump on them until they put their skis on,” Walter Teppen said of his dog, Spot, who in the 1920s entertained spectators by hurtling down the airstrips on modified skis under jumps. to Duluth and the Iron Chain. Contribution / Archives and Special Collections, University of Minnesota Duluth, permanent loan from St. Louis County Historical Society

The book focuses on the people behind the history of skiing.

It includes people like Banks, a store teacher and ski coach at Duluth Central High School who in the 1950s cut a network of private trails next to his home in Clover Valley, north of the city.

Rodgers writes that Banks would load the ski team into his station wagon and hit the slopes for practice. Banks’ wife Dorothy would often make hot chocolate for them after skiing before Banks drove them back to town.

Mark Helmer, who now runs the 10 kilometer single track trail system under the name Korkki Nordic Ski, gave Banks credit for passing on his love of the sport to the youth of Duluth.

“The fact that this has been documented and will go on for a while makes me happy because (Charlie Banks) was my best friend and still is,” Helmer told the News Tribune. “And to think that someone would write a book not only about Charlie and Korkki and what they did for skiing, but about all the people who have done so much to start the sport, that’s important, very important. . “

And Banks’ love for the sport included the type of outdoor philosophy Helmer passed on to Rodgers, ultimately prompting the author to relocate a short drive from Korkki.

As Banks got older, Helmer would invite him over for a ski. Banks said he was too slow and liked to stop and watch the tracks.

Helmer replied, “Me too. Let’s go.”

“It’s more than skiing, and I think it has to be said, it’s the love of being outdoors,” Helmer said.

Rodgers said he was happy to have interviewed George Hovland before his death at the age of 94 earlier this year.

Hovland, who skied at the 1952 Winter Olympics in Oslo, Norway, touched pretty much everything skiing in Duluth, described to Rodgers what it was like to be a kid watching the start of the Arrowhead Ski Derby, a five-day race that started at the Duluth Civic Center and ended in St. Paul for the St. Paul Winter Carnival. It was won by Fosseide.

The book also tells the stories of some of the girls and women who broke into the sport before Title IX.

Bonnie Fuller-Kask, now a Nordic ski coach at Duluth East, was one of them. In the late 1960s, she and her brother started skiing in the Twin Cities, but there weren’t many sports girls could officially join. just cheerleading. Her brother joined the school’s ski team and she trained with them, but she often needed her parents to drive her to practice while everyone else was on the bus, Rodgers wrote.

But things changed quickly, Fuller-Kask said. She graduated from Robbinsdale High School in 1973 and two years later returned to Robbinsdale as a ski coach.

By that time, a girls ‘team had been formed and it was as big as the boys’ team.

“The girls couldn’t conceive that there wouldn’t be women’s sports,” Fuller-Kask said.

The inclusion of girls and women in the sport is an important story to remember as it can often be taken for granted – she sometimes hears her skiers talking about Title IX as something that destroys both boys and men’s teams in the races. secondary schools and colleges rather than expanding opportunities for girls and women.

“Without knowing what it was like before, you might not be able to hold onto what you have now,” Fuller-Kask said.

And that, she said, is the importance of recording history.

“I think it’s a treasure for Minnesota that someone like (Rodgers) writes this book on the history of skiing, because at some point it gets lost,” she said.

The book is Rodgers’ first and derives from a 2019 article he wrote for the Minnesota Conservation Volunteer magazine on the history of cross-country skiing in William O’Brien State Park in Marine on St. Croix and how he ultimately fathered Jessie Diggins, who, along with teammate Kikkan Randall, won the first Olympic gold medal in cross-country skiing for the United States at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang, in South Korea.

With a few years of research, a move to Duluth, and a book to show it, Rodgers said he believes the future of competitive cross-country skiing is solid in part thanks to more snow-producing facilities and strong interest in high school programs across the state.

“Nordic skiing as a competitive sport – the future is bright,” said Rodgers.

But, he later added: “The traditional style of skiing as the Norwegians historically enjoyed it – that pursuit where you get in shape and you get better and you improve your community and you get in touch with the community. nature – this is what we are working on. risk of losing. It is undeniable that the winters are noticeably warming.

EDITOR’S NOTE: This is the 18th story in the collection of stories compiled by the members of the Eveleth High School class of 1972 about the military service of their fathers and the service of their mothers on the Home Front. This week’s edition features the rest of a story about Walter Iver Sundstrom told by classmates of his son, Leon Charles Sundstrom. Readers are encouraged to submit stories about their military service or that of loved ones. —Jill Pepelnjak, Editor-in-Chief

The squadron assisted in the Tunisian campaign until all Axis forces in North Africa surrendered on May 13, 1943. Walter Sundstrom fought in Tunisia, Sicily, the island of Sardinia and in Italy. The map insert shows the May 14, 1943 take-off exits from Bizerte, Tunisia. B-17 Flying Fortresses headed for mainland Italy, while Walter’s B-25s and other 379th B-25s headed for their low-flying dive bombing mission to sink military ships. enemies moored at the port of Olbia, Sardinia. It was a typical mission.

A mission to Sardinia on June 1, 1943 had added excitement. “Sundstrom In Air Thriller: Walter I. Sundstrom, radio machine gunner sergeant on a B-25 Mitchell bomber, and son of Mr. and Mrs. John Sundstrom of that city, had an exciting experience in the Mediterranean on June 2 [sic]. He was part of the crew of a plane that was shot down by enemy fighters but continued to fly 325 miles of high seas, with one engine inoperative and a wing on fire before crashing into the sea ​​near the allied coast of North Africa. The plane was about 10,000 feet from its target, when enemy planes passed through their own heavy flak, to blow up the bomber before it dropped its bombs. With the opposition, the Americans were very lucky to survive. They landed their burning plane in the sea after reaching a point not far from their own base, got out of the ship, inflated their raft and quickly moved away. They were picked up by an Arab fishing boat which took them to the home of an Arab leader. Here they were treated for their cuts and bruises. (Source: Eveleth News-Clarion, p. June 1, 10, 1943.)

158749

On this June 1 flight, the flight surgeon, Major John L. Cogland, of Burke, New York, was an observer to study the response of crews to combat. He was quoted after the rescue about the enemy fire: “It sounded like the sound of hail. I stood there speechless when I saw the bullets rip through the engine and the left wing. Then a dozen bullets smashed the co-pilot’s window and one went through his parachute. When the radio gunner (Walter) announced that the fire had reached the wingspan of the main wing, Lt. (Charles W) Smith decided that we had to land at sea.Source: Baltimore Sun, p. June 2, 6, 1943.)

Cogland and other surgeons in the unit were tasked with motivating reluctant pilots to return to their planes after losing many squadron members on previous missions. To add credibility to this role, the unit commander required that a surgeon fly into the air as an observer with the crew every five missions.

The other crew members on this flight were First Officer Lieutenant Albert B. Farry, of Bradley Beach, New Jersey; the bomber, Lt. Benedict J. O’Meara, of DeWitt, Iowa; and the turret gunner, Master Sgt. Fred F. Hecks, of Tacoma, Washington. Less than a week after the June 1 forced landing, Lieutenant Smith’s crew were once again flying in a new aircraft and performing sorties again. Walt was promoted from Sergeant to Technical Sergeant (TSgt) on September 17, 1943. Technical sergeants are qualified to perform very complex technical tasks in addition to providing supervision.

On October 3, 1943, Walt received his 9th oak leaf cluster for his air medal. The Air Medal is a decoration awarded for isolated acts of heroism or meritorious accomplishment while participating in an aerial flight. A group of oak leaves is placed on military awards and decorations to denote those who have received more than one award discount.

On October 6, 1943, Walter was transferred to the nearest port of departure for his return to the United States. He was considered one of the “old folks” who had finally completed their coveted 50th mission. He was 29 years old. “In September 1943, the checkpoint (for the rotation of combat) for the crews of the B-25 was 50 sorties. “(Source: Combat Crew Rotation – WWII and Korean War – USAF Historical Division, January 1968.)

According to Walter’s obituary, he had flown over 52 missions outside of North Africa and received a Purple Heart.

“T / Sgt. Walter Sundstrom left for Atlanta, Georgia on Monday after a two-week visit with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Sundstrom, on Monroe Street. Sgt. Sundstrom returned to the United States after extensive homework abroad, having completed 50 “bombing missions”. He received the Purple Heart and several Oak Leaf Clusters. (Source: With our service men, p. November 4, 18, 1943, Eveleth News Clarion.)

After his return, Walt remained in the United States at various airfields. On February 2, 1945, while Walter was stationed at Alexandria Air Force Base, Louisiana, Leon’s parents received their marriage license. Walter received his separation from service with an honorable discharge on June 3, 1945. He was a life member of the veterans organization of the 57th Bomb Wing Association.

Timeless paintings is a CNT miniseries that features lessons from some of the country’s most iconic restaurants for having survived the test of time

A bakery that evolved into a coffee shop that became South India’s first air-conditioned restaurant, Bengaluru’s Koshy’s is more than a corner restaurant or iconic landmark; it is an emotion, a living organism, which breathes, which vibrates with life. Rooted in St Mark’s Road for nearly seven decades, recording every change in the city, he has seen countless stories unfold within its walls and the sweet parade of life with his unwavering gaze.

Koshy’s history dates back to the 1940s, when WWII prompted unemployed bank executive, P Oommen Koshy, to open a small bakery in the Cantonment area of ​​former Bangalore, rather than return to Kerala. . He made traditional English bread for the garrisons – which he nicknamed “army bread” – which cost an anna. From home deliveries of bread and cookies to bikes, the bakery has evolved into a department store on MG Road.

With the help of his friends, Koshy rented land behind the cathedral on the corner of St Marks Road and moved his bakery. In 1952-53 he opened the ‘Parade Café’ next door, unaware that it would become the most iconic and beloved restaurant in Bangalore.

Koshy’s has remained virtually unchanged since 1952. Elders might notice the subtle shift from rattan chairs and gingham-covered tables dressed in monogrammed silver sugar bowls and tea pots, to wood, formica and moss furniture. Still, the overall unpretentious and comfortable ambience of the waiting room at this colonial relic retains its charm.

While people love the noisier, no-air-conditioning section with its squeaky old fans and walls adorned with black-and-white photos of Bangalore’s wonderful old-world landmarks, the Jewel Box Café is the slightly more expensive and private air-conditioned annex. The revolutionary addition in 1962 was the first AC restaurant in South India with a live band and dance floor. An old jukebox sang songs for four annas!

Personalized and friendly customer service is the top priority, as brothers Santosh and Prem do not see themselves as “owners or bosses” but as simple keepers and custodians of a heritage passed down from their grandfather. They took over the reins after the death of their father and uncle. Santosh, the introvert, prefers to stay behind the scenes, running operations sitting behind the billing counter.

Prem, the most amiable and talkative, comes to each table to watch the diners and regale them with stories and anecdotes. The quintessential restaurateur, Prem is the face of Koshy’s and diligently cares for every guest. “I was only eight years old when my grandfather gave me the job of keeping the place clean in addition to selling cakes and chocolates at the bakery during Christmas.”

Lesson 1: Stay Consistent

Elders and privileged friends receive a plate of potato smileys, puffy daddy’s triangles, or the famous “bread butter” – oblong, chewy sliced ​​buns from Koshy covered in soft butter, on the house. The menu is an exhaustive mix of 968 items covering typical Kerala dishes that celebrate family roots, colonial favorites, Anglo-Indian and Continental dishes, and global cuisine from family travels. The food is classic, no fuss or frills – signature roast chicken, club sandwich, fish n ‘chips, Spanish omelet, mutton chop, all day English breakfast and Kerala specialties like egg appam, pork Kerala or beef fries, fish biryani, fried shrimp or Sunday special of appams lace and stew.

The consistency and authenticity of the recipes keep people coming back time and time again for familiar flavors they grew up with. Coffee lovers swear by their strong black coffee, a secret blend of Coorg, Chikmagalur and Kerala heritage, brewed in the same old bell metal coffee filter for over 46 years. Their snacks are also a huge hit, especially the crispy, puffy chicken cabbage, available at the nearby Koshy’s Bakery, alongside breads, gingerbread cookies, pastries, pies and chops.

Regulars know exactly what they want on and off the menu and are known to be territorial. May God save the poor at the corner table near the window or the wooden pillar… because he ignores the stabbed looks of a regular who wanders to discover a stranger in “his” or “his” favorite place. Bible tarot card reader Protima Bedi and Dolores Pereira were notoriously possessive, fiercely crowding out any intruders.

Almost two centuries. Five GeeVee Police Reserve officers, with 195 years of service between them, are retiring. Reservists are duly sworn in, uniformed, and armed officers who work alongside regular officers – the difference is that Reservists work part-time. Congratulations from the community to Mike Walsh (48), Larry Aguilar (44), Jerry Eason (44), Michael Hooker (42, full time and reserve) and Todd Tripp (17). “Seeing them in uniform at special events or riding with one of our officers to help keep our community safe will be sorely missed,” said Chief Alex Gammelgard, who warmly congratulated the Reservists during the Ministry Christmas party. “We can never express our gratitude deeply enough, but on behalf of our entire community, we thank them for their service…! “

“I’ve always loved the Halloween patrol, show kids the other side of law enforcement, ”says the retired Reserve Sgt. Mike Walsh, who was the GVPD’s longest-serving reserve officer. “We dressed in costumes and patrolled the treat areas to make sure the kids were safe and no one was being bullied.” Another of his favorite memories is participating in police combat marksmanship competitions, in which Mike has regularly won “awards and trophies”. Since starting with the department in 1973, Mike has worked for five chiefs of police (for the alumni that counted: Knuckey, Seck, Mouser, Foster and Gammelgard). “In the old days, we didn’t have portable radios and we only communicated from the patrol car radio,” recalls Mike. “Work is much safer now, with better communication, instant access to research such as a suspect’s background, bulletproof vests and cages in cars…”



No matter how many times loyal Hallmark “The Christmas Card” viewers enjoy the film, they get dizzy when they watch and record reruns. Registration is essential; rare DVDs of the film sell for hundreds of dollars. There are several “Christmas Card” groups on Facebook, where fans discuss the details and question the characters’ motivations: “Did Cody leave early in the morning? If he left after talking to Paul, then why didn’t they notice that his bike had left on his way home from church? The film was shot in NevCity and tourists from all over the world travel here in tribute. That’s why this year, the NevCity Chamber of Commerce has linked its website with information and a map of the locations featured in “The Christmas Map” (http://www.nevadacitychamber.com/the- christmas-card) …

“The Christmas card” Author Joany Kane reveals that the screenplay was inspired by his actual events. “At the end of 1998, I was working on a Christmas romance screenplay,” writes Joanie. “I had the general idea, a soldier serving overseas receives a Christmas card from a young woman and it touches him so much that he goes to meet her and thank her. The week between Christmas and New Years, I started a new job in a sawmill office in western Massachusetts. On the first Friday of 1999, a lumberjack entered the mill and for me it was love at first sight. Once Joanie finished the script, she handed the first printed copy to this lumberjack. She and Dave have lived happily ever after for over two decades. Joany says the story originally took place in Vermont, but “Nevada City turned ‘the Christmas card’ into magic and I will be eternally grateful to the city and the community…”



Because she’s getting so many questions about where Hallmark’s “The Christmas Card” was shot in Nevada City this year, the Chamber of Commerce has posted some useful information and a map on its website.
