Break out the ice bags, Fight Night #2 Saturday at Rod & Gun Club

first_imgHosting a fight card is a lot of work for Pinero and Company.The ring used at the Rod and Gun Club is loaned to the club from Cranbrook.Invites go out to all the clubs in the region as well as in the province of BC and Idaho and Washington State.Then there’s the set up, take down, selling tickets and security.But as Pinero sees it, the hard work all pays off in the end.“I think we’re going in the right direction,” he said.“The feedback we received from all sectors of the community, from police to social workers to high school  . . . everybody is just super happy with the results that they’re seeing .  . . . Not talking about boxing here. I’m talking about kids having a direction and a bit of focus in their lives and turning things around.”Nelson boxer, Bhodi Cartland couldn’t agree more.Cartland admits he may have been on a collision course, but is happy to now have a focus — and that focus is boxing.“Boxing gave me a place where I felt I belonged . . . a better sense of being in the community through just not just hanging out with my friends at a coffee shop or getting “high” it gave me better feeling of self worth,” said Cartland, getting a chance to box again against Joe Armstrong of Kelowna.The first bout in May was halted when judges felt the two adult boxers was turning into a street-brawl.Nelson Fight Night #2 goes Saturday at the Rod and Gun Club. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at the boxing club, Tribute Boardshop, Bia Boro Boutique and at the door.  Weigh in is at 4 p.m.First bout goes at 6 p.m. Boxing is coming back to Nelson.Actually the Nelson Boxing Club is flourishing very well, thank you very much, at its new digs in the basement under Pharmasave on Baker Street.So much that the club is preparing to host Nelson Fight Night #2, the second boxing card in less than a year Saturday at the Nelson Rod and Gun Club.“It feels real good to be able to fight again in front of my home town,” Elias Martinez said during a break in training this week at the Nelson Boxing Club.“Ya, I can’t wait to get back in the ring,” said Bhodie Cartland when asked about stepping back into the ring for his third bout of the year.Saturday’s card has more 11 bouts scheduled said Nelson Boxing Club coach Jesse Pineiro.Six bouts have local fighters stepping into the ring —  Ryan Lewis, Reil and Elias Martinez, Bhodi Cartland, Jeff Emmett and Krishan Lysenko.“I feel a lot more confident for this fight than I did in May,” said the 12-year-old Martinez, who faces Aaron Madriaga of North Vancouver.“The last time I was pretty sick the week before the fight and didn’t have very much time to train.“This time I’m healthy and feel very comfortable,” added Martinez, who is 2-2 on the season.Boxers are attending from Cranbrook, Kelowna, Revelstoke, North Vancouver and Burnaby.last_img read more

Calls for Govt to make serious investment in abuse survivors

first_imgThe leader of a network of survivors of institutional child abuse has called on the Government to invest more time and money in helping thousands of her fellow victims.On Saturday, a few hundred people – survivors, advocates and voluntary and statutory service providers – met in Trinity College Dublin to discuss what they call Ireland’s lifelong responsibility to the survivors of institutional abuse.Carmel McDonnell Byrne of the Christine Buckley Centre was speaking at a conference marking the 20th anniversary of the then Taoiseach Bertie Ahern’s apology for the State’s failure to protect children from all forms of abuse. On 11 May 1999, following the broadcast by RTÉ of the documentary series States of Fear, Taoiseach Bertie Ahern apologised on the State’s behalf, saying the Government believed the victims had been gravely wronged and that the Government “must do all we can now” to overcome the lasting effects of their ordeals.The conference was told by Ms Byrne, who represented the organising committee, that despite being innocent children, they had become numbers who were battered, brutalised, degraded, sexually abused, name-called, starved and worked from dusk until dawn, while no-one really “gave a damn” about them.She said that through self-advocacy in centres like her own, survivors had discovered their own skills and talents which they were never able to even dream about.She urged the State’s policy-makers and Government to be more mindful and compassionate and to reach out to help the most vulnerable to have a decent quality of life for the rest of their days. “Time and money has to be invested,” she added. “We deserve that.”Mrs Byrne urged the Government to establish a free genealogical service which would use DNA to help survivors to find their parents and siblings from whom they had been removed, frequently involuntarily.Calls for Govt to make serious investment in abuse survivors was last modified: May 12th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

League Wide: Million Dollar Assistants and the Future of the Big 12

first_img“I don’t disagree with the whole thought that it’s in our interest that the Big 12 succeed,” Boren said before telling reporters how famously OU gets along with conference rivals Oklahoma State and Texas. “So, no, we’re not desperate to go anywhere else … While you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member. It’s a big ask from us to you, but it also comes with a load of benefits like ad-free browsing (ads stink!), access to our premium room in The Chamber and monthly giveaways.The other thing it does is help stabilize our business into the future. As it turns out, sending folks on the road to cover games and provide 24/7 Pokes coverage like the excellent article you just read costs money. Because of our subscribers, we’ve been able to improve our work and provide the best OSU news and community anywhere online. Help us keep that up. 10Horned Frogs Let’s take a look at some news around the league from this week. Million-Dollar MenTexas and Oklahoma became the first Big 12 schools to pay coordinators $1m plus this week.Just a day after Texas formally approved a record-setting $1 million annual salary for defensive coordinator Todd Orlando, Oklahoma countered Thursday with a contract making offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley the highest-paid assistant in the Big 12 and one of the tops in the country.Riley will be paid $1.3 million per season in a new three-year deal. [Austin American-Statesman]Two things stick out here, first: its interesting to see Texas finally start throwing their wallet around a little bit.Now, paying top-dollar for the former Houston defensive coordinator? Eh, not that splashy. It’d be more impressive to see them throw a stack of bills taller than the Texas bell tower at the Texas A&M defensive coordinator (or poach from someone).The Riley extension was a well-done, big boy move. The Sooners pay a premium and basically ensure that Riley will only leave for a better than average head coaching job.Stoops mentioned it’s been in the works for months, the timing feels a little responsive to their rival’s big payout to an assistant. Lord knows they’ve been a bit chippier than usual lately.Railroad from Raider LandIt’s hard to put a finger on what’s going on in Lubbock but a pair of receivers have left over the last few weeks.Texas Tech receiver Tony Brown announced he plans to leave Lubbock and transfer from Texas Tech via Twitter on Thursday afternoon.Brown is the second receiver to announce an intent to transfer after leading receiver from last year Jonathan Giles said he was leaving the program on April 28. [SportsDay]More troubling, a Texas Tech All-Transfer team is in the making. “I would just say that we’re, at this point in time, hoping the Big 12 will improve and succeed.” [TulsaWorld] Rebuilding the JayhawksForget Texas, apparently Kansas may be getting (a twinge) of buzz.I’m willing to make such a — cough — bold, risky statement based on the simple fact that, for the first time in quite a while, KU has options.Beaty has mined the transfer market for talent, and at least a few of his recent five-year recruits have shown promise. The result: some loose approximation of depth and position battles, particularly on an offense that has been destitute for years. [SBNation]We’ll spare you the details but a couple of Bama transfers on offense (wide receiver and tackle) to go with the Texas A&M transfer that followed David Beatty in Doug Meacham’s offense could mean something.They’ve had (somewhat) stingy defenses over the last few years but anemic offenses plagued hungry Kansas squads.center_img Gary Patterson (3): Patterson is in a similar situation as Dantonio. We all believe he’s a great coach, but he’s coming off a sub-par season. That recency bias has an effect on where he stands in these rankings, but his history suggests that he’s capable of another huge season with the Horned Frogs. [CBS Sports] In a perfect world: Texas Tech would be starting: Mayfield, Dauphine, Giles, Fehoko, Mitchell & Bethel in 2017. #WreckEm— Ben Rosas (@Benjamin_Rosas) May 11, 2017That’s a two-time Heisman finalist, a Biletnikoff finalist and four four-star recruits. When a coach is under pressure (as Kliff Kingsbury undeniably is), recruiting takes a toll. But internal exits?Could be anything. Generally it’s over playing time or discipline. Either way, impact players leaving heading into year five isn’t good.KingmakersIn CBS’ most recent ranking of Power Five coaches, the Big 12 found four within the top twelve. One was interesting. Not quite the reassurance Big 12 fans are looking for from one of their bell cows.The article looks at how the realignment will fire up a bit when the Big Ten’s media contracts expire in the early 2020’s. Concerning OU’s landing spot, here’s a good question.Key question: Oklahoma pres David Boren is 76. Will he hold the reins in 3-5 years, when/if (by his estimation, too) realignment cranks up?— George Schroeder (@GeorgeSchroeder) May 12, 2017 Patterson threw the Frogs on his shoulders and carried them into the Big 12, securing the financial viability of the program for the immediate future.  But No. 10 in the country?Either way, Stoops was at sixth, Snyder at ninth, Patterson at tenth and Gundy rounded off the group at twelfth. It’s been said but this guys do it as well as anybody with very little NFL talent.No Place Like (A New) HomeOU and Texas are the Big 12’s trophy brands. Much ado is being made this off season about one of those school’s options.last_img read more
