BETHLEHEM, Pennsylvania – After the season was abandoned almost a year ago, the Lehigh men’s tennis team will return to the pitches for the season opener on Sunday. The Mountain Hawks will leave for Baltimore and face Loyola, Md. The planned start of the Mountain Hawks last weekend against Lafayette has been canceled.

Lehigh comes from a season they ended up 5-5. The Mountain Hawks started the first year with dominant wins against Saint Francis, Siena and Duquesne, before losing wire-to-wire matches against Drexel and Villanova. Just before the season was canceled due to COVID-19, Lehigh traveled to Orlando and took solid wins against Bentley and Carnegie Melon.

This year’s team returns with a wealth of talent from a season as Lehigh returns four of his top five players with Zack Elliott, Harry Wang, Gary Fishkin and Jacob Edelchik. The Mountain Hawks will also look for jumps by college students Matt Kleiman and Jeremy Learner. Elliott, Wang and Fishkin all got a 6-3 mark in 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in the singles. Jacob Edelchik and Jeremy Learner took five singles wins a season ago, while Matt Kleiman took four.

The four best Lehigh players also form a strong duo in doubles. The pairs Elliott / Wang and Edelchik / Fishkin achieved six wins each in the first two places in doubles. Learner and Steven Nazaroff finished 3rd with 3-1.

Coach Wouter Hendrix brought two newcomers to this year’s team: David Missry and Jordan Paul. Missry is coming to Bethlehem from Taylor Allerdice High School, Pittsburgh, while Paul is coming from Marlboro High School, New Jersey.

The Greyhounds have yet to compete this season but will face Chestnut Hill in their first game of the season on Saturday before hosting the Mountain Hawks.

Look back on Sunday night to see how the Brown and Whites first game of the season went.

With the school year 2021 in retrospect and freedom within reach, that’s what experts call it “100 Deadliest Days” for young drivers is now in session.

From Memorial Day to Labor Day, an average of seven people per day are killed in teenage car accidents, according to the AAA. Nationwide; more than 30% of deaths involving teenage drivers occur within 100 days.

With COVID-19 vaccines approved for teenagers and pandemic restrictions disappearing, teenagers will be right to want to reunite.

“After the CDC lifted many pandemic restrictions, young adults are eager to reconnect with friends, which means young inexperienced drivers will be spending more time on the roads.” AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins said in a press release. “This increases the likelihood that they will be involved in an accident and for every kilometer driven, the likelihood of new teenage drivers (aged 16-17) being involved in a fatal accident is three times higher than that of adults.”

According to the AAA, traffic accidents are the No. 1 killer of U.S. teenagers aged 16-19. Experts say six teenagers are killed every day “In accidents that can be completely avoided.”

In Florida, an average of 36 teenage drivers are involved in fatal accidents within 100 days. According to the AAA, an average of 158 people are killed in teenage car accidents each year; 40 of those who during the “100 deadliest days.” Over the past 10 summers, 400 people lost their lives in teenage car accidents.

?Young people lack the experience, skills and maturity of an experienced driver, which contributes to the fact that the probability of a fatal outcome increases not only for the young driver, but also for every passenger and for others on the road. ? Jenkins continued. “That’s why we all have a personal interest in making sure youngsters are safe behind the wheel.”

At Cape Coral High School, members of the Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) program do their best to pass the dangers or driving disabilities on to their classmates, especially during the prom and graduation seasons.

“Unfortunately, the students don’t have this fear, they consider themselves invincible.” said SADD sponsor of Cape Coral High School, Dianna Quay. “I hope our children (graduating on Saturday) make wise choices.”

Quay said Cape seniors had a chat about making the right decisions ahead of graduation night that Saturday and hope the message sticks.

“If we help a child think before they get into a car to drive, or even get into a car with someone under the influence of drugs, it’s worth it.” She said.

There are also concerns that the summer months are approaching and teenagers may want to be out and about more often.

“I think everyone was so pent up that it will be a release and I’m not sure everyone will make the smartest decisions.” Kai said. “Uber is available, there is no excuse for no alternative but to get in the car or get behind the wheel when alcohol or drugs have been involved.”

AAA officials said understanding the risks and knowing the facts will help prepare both parents and teens for what can happen on the street.

Safety tips for teenage drivers from AAA include:

? Driving with passengers: The accident risks of young drivers multiply when they have young passengers. Set limits and enforce them.

? Driving at night: Night driving is more dangerous due to limited visibility, fatigue and impaired drivers on the road. This is a risky time, especially for young people. Limit the amount of time your novice driver spends behind the wheel at night.

? Do not wear a seat belt: Wearing a seat belt greatly reduces the risk of injury or death in an accident. Make a rule: everyone buckles up for every trip.

? Over speeding: Speed ??is a major factor in accidents for adolescents and adults. Teens must adhere to the speed limit and parents should lead by example and apply strict rules.

? Distracted driving: Teenage passengers are the biggest distraction for teenage drivers, but cell phones come second. Many teenagers admit to interacting with their phone and infotainment systems in the car while they are behind the wheel, despite the obvious dangers. Make a family rule that covers these and other distractions that everyone adheres to.

? Sleepy driving: Teenagers have difficulty getting enough sleep and often struggle with drowsiness. Sleepy driving is just as dangerous as driving drunk, and teenagers are at the highest risk. Make sure everyone behind the wheel has had enough sleep.

? Restricted driving: Driving impaired by alcohol and other drugs puts everyone at risk. Implement strict zero-tolerance rules with your teen and be a good role model.

Parents talk to their ready-to-drive teenagers about the “Behaviour rules” can play an important role in how your child behaves at the wheel. AAA experts said teach by example and minimize “Risky behavior” while driving can lay the foundation for a safe driver.

AAA also recommends enrolling teenagers for driving courses. AAAs “How to drive online” is a 25-hour supplementary course that teaches the rules and essential elements of safe driving in an interactive and innovative way. This online program is designed to ensure that safe driving habits are developed and maintained for a lifetime.

Freshpet looking for "Fresh in Show" in honor of Shelter Dogs

SECAUCUS, New Jersey, June 11, 2021 / PRNewswire / – During a week when the world is focused on perfect standards for dogs at the country’s largest dog show, Freshpet (FRPT) aims to spotlight those pets who don’t have a pedigree, but rather those who have emergency shelters get into our homes. Freshpet’s ?Fresh in Show? program encourages pet parents to share their fresh-faced shelter and rescue dogs and cats to highlight the love these pets have for their families. A grand prize winner will be featured on Freshpet’s social channels as part of the competition and will receive an annual supply of Freshpet food.

The winners will be selected at random. Multiple answers are welcome, but not required to win. The competition runs from now until the end of June. Freshpet will notify the winners via direct message in July. No purchase is required to participate.

The program follows the recent activation of Freshpet in new Yorkto demonstrate the long-term shelf life of dry dog ??food and highlight the value of fresh dog food over dry dog ??food. The brand hires new York Artist Will Kurtz to create a larger than life bulldog sculpture entirely from dry food with the title A Sad Kibble Dog “.

Mountain Hawks Set to Host Colgate in Patriot League Semifinals Friday

BETHLEHEM, Pennsylvania – The Men of Lehigh’s # 9 lacrosse team is ready for its second season as the Mountain Hawks host Colgate in the Patriot League semi-finals at 4pm on Friday at the Ulrich Sports Complex. With a perfect 8-0 league record, the Mountain Hawks will host the league semi-finals and the championship game for the first time since 2013. Army West Point and Loyola meet at 7 p.m. after Lehigh’s showdown with Colgate. Both games can be seen live nationwide on CBS Sports Network.

Lehigh has advanced to 10 consecutive Patriot League tournaments, the longest active streak in the league. The Mountain Hawks have advanced in five of the last eight championship games this season, winning titles in 2012 and 2013 before losing in the championship game in 2014, 2018 and 2019. Lehigh and Colgate competed in the 2013 and 2018 league tournaments – in semi-finals and quarter-finals – both Mountain Hawk victories.

The Raiders reached the semifinals on Tuesday with an 11-8 win at Boston University. Colgate was 7-4 back but scored six goals in a row in the second half. The Raiders are now 3-6, but all of their losses were competitive, including a 13-11 loss at No. 11 Army West Point in the regular season finals.

Lehigh goes into the postseason with 16: 8 in Villanova after his first defeat of the season. The Wildcats jumped 9-2 at halftime and didn’t want to look back. Two bright spots for the Mountain Hawks were graduate student Conor Gaffney and senior Teddy Leggett, who dwarfed 400 and 200 groundballs, respectively, in their careers. Junior Mike Sisselberger won 20 of 22 faceoffs with eight ground balls, becoming Patriot League Faceoff Specialist of the Week for the fifth time in a row and for the sixth time this season – a new league record. Sisselberger was named the league’s Faceoff Specialist of the Year on Tuesday – Lehigh’s second consecutive award winner (after Gaffney in 2019).

Head coach Kevin Cassese was also named Patriot League Coach of the Year for a second time (along with 2013, the last time the Mountain Hawks were # 1 overall). A total of seven Mountain Hawks All-Patriot League were named, with Junior Tommy Schelling, John Sidorski in the second year and Junior Anthony Tangredi were appointed to the first team.

Lehigh and Colgate met in the regular season, with the Mountain Hawks winning 15-10. After Lehigh took a 4-0 lead, the Raiders even pulled out with five, but Lehigh responded with 10 of the next 12 goals to take a 15-7 lead. The Mountain Hawks have won a total of six straight times and 10 of the last 11 against the Raiders.

Colgate participated in a number of competitive competitions this year. The Raiders were 2-6 in the regular season, but three of the losses were four goals or less, two goals to five, and one to six. Second-team All Patriot League winner Brian Minicus leads Colgate with assists (21) and points (36), while Mike Hawkins is right behind with 18 goals and 11 assists for 29 points. Thomas Colucci won 16 of 22 faceoffs on Tuesday, helping the Raiders to victory.

Colgate leads the all-time series 28-20, but the Mountain Hawks have won 10 of the last 11, starting with winning the 2012 Patriot League Championship in Colgate. The teams have played three times in the postseason since 2012 (also in 2013 in the semi-finals and in 2018 in the quarter-finals). Lehigh’s 15-10 win over the Raiders on March 28 was the Mountain Hawks’ sixth straight win. The last time the two teams played in Lehigh was more than three years ago in the aforementioned semi-finals. Colgate won the first ever meeting between the two schools in 1956. Lehigh’s first win came in 1960 with an 8-6 final.

If the Mountain Hawks win on Friday, they would advance to their third consecutive Patriot League Championship game, facing the winner from Loyola and Army West Point on Sunday at 12 noon

Mountain Hawks Set to Host Colgate in Patriot League Semifinals Friday

Story links

BETHLEHEM, Pennsylvania – The Men of Lehigh’s # 9 lacrosse team is ready for its second season as the Mountain Hawks host Colgate in the Patriot League semi-finals at 4pm on Friday at the Ulrich Sports Complex. With a perfect 8-0 league record, the Mountain Hawks will host the league semi-finals and the championship game for the first time since 2013. Army West Point and Loyola meet at 7 p.m. after Lehigh’s showdown with Colgate. Both games can be seen live nationwide on CBS Sports Network.

Lehigh has advanced to 10 consecutive Patriot League tournaments, the longest active streak in the league. The Mountain Hawks have advanced in five of the last eight championship games this season, winning titles in 2012 and 2013 before losing in the championship game in 2014, 2018 and 2019. Lehigh and Colgate competed in the 2013 and 2018 league tournaments – in semi-finals and quarter-finals – both Mountain Hawk victories.

The Raiders reached the semifinals on Tuesday with an 11-8 win at Boston University. Colgate was 7-4 back but scored six goals in a row in the second half. The Raiders are now 3-6, but all of their losses were competitive, including a 13-11 loss at No. 11 Army West Point in the regular season finals.

Lehigh goes into the postseason with 16: 8 in Villanova after his first defeat of the season. The Wildcats jumped 9-2 at halftime and didn’t want to look back. Two bright spots for the Mountain Hawks were graduate student Conor Gaffney and senior Teddy Leggett, who dwarfed 400 and 200 groundballs, respectively, in their careers. Junior Mike Sisselberger won 20 of 22 faceoffs with eight ground balls, becoming Patriot League Faceoff Specialist of the Week for the fifth time in a row and for the sixth time this season – a new league record. Sisselberger was named the league’s Faceoff Specialist of the Year on Tuesday – Lehigh’s second consecutive award winner (after Gaffney in 2019).

Head coach Kevin Cassese was also named Patriot League Coach of the Year for a second time (along with 2013, the last time the Mountain Hawks were # 1 overall). A total of seven Mountain Hawks All-Patriot League were named, with Junior Tommy Schelling, John Sidorski in the second year and Junior Anthony Tangredi were appointed to the first team.

Lehigh and Colgate met in the regular season, with the Mountain Hawks winning 15-10. After Lehigh took a 4-0 lead, the Raiders even pulled out with five, but Lehigh responded with 10 of the next 12 goals to take a 15-7 lead. The Mountain Hawks have won a total of six straight times and 10 of the last 11 against the Raiders.

Colgate participated in a number of competitive competitions this year. The Raiders were 2-6 in the regular season, but three of the losses were four goals or less, two goals to five, and one to six. Second-team All Patriot League winner Brian Minicus leads Colgate with assists (21) and points (36), while Mike Hawkins is right behind with 18 goals and 11 assists for 29 points. Thomas Colucci won 16 of 22 faceoffs on Tuesday, helping the Raiders to victory.

Colgate leads the all-time series 28-20, but the Mountain Hawks have won 10 of the last 11, starting with winning the 2012 Patriot League Championship in Colgate. The teams have played three times in the postseason since 2012 (also in 2013 in the semi-finals and in 2018 in the quarter-finals). Lehigh’s 15-10 win over the Raiders on March 28 was the Mountain Hawks’ sixth straight win. The last time the two teams played in Lehigh was more than three years ago in the aforementioned semi-finals. Colgate won the first ever meeting between the two schools in 1956. Lehigh’s first win came in 1960 with an 8-6 final.

If the Mountain Hawks win on Friday, they would advance to their third consecutive Patriot League Championship game, facing the winner from Loyola and Army West Point on Sunday at 12 noon

Border Patrol Arrests Over 100 in a Stash House

The evenings?s note-worthy report.

 In a joint law enforcement effort, Laredo Sector Border Patrol, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), and Laredo Police Department (LPD) worked together to shut down an alleged stash house that contained a large group of individuals being guarded by smugglers in south Laredo.

The incident occurred during the morning of June 10 when over 100 undocumented individuals were found inside the alleged stash house.  The individuals were identified as nationals of Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Ecuador, and Nicaragua.

All the undocumented individuals were taken into custody for further investigation.  None of the individuals were wearing any personal protective equipment (PPE) and all were medically screened.

The smuggling and housing of large groups of individuals in stash houses has not been deterred by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.  Stash house incidents such as this pose a threat not only to the people exploited by human smuggling but also to the people and safety of our Nation.

Take a stand against these criminal organizations and other potentially dangerous acts by reporting suspicious activity in our neighborhoods

Freshpet will notify the winners via direct message in July. No purchase is required to participate.

Swarthmore sticks with plan to bring retired military on campus as faculty

Swarthmore College will stick to its plan to partner with an organization that will host retired military personnel as visiting professors on campus, although some faculties and students have been pushed back, the president announced on Friday.

Last year?s decision to partner with the Chamberlain Project sharply divided the Delaware County School. Supporters said it would broaden views and enable discussion and debate about a large, influential institution in America, the kind of debate that should be held on a liberal arts campus.

Opponents, including several student groups, said it was unfair to create a special path for military officers to work as visiting professors. At a faculty meeting last month, 83 out of 150 attendees passed a resolution calling on President Valerie Smith to withdraw from the partnership. Swarthmore has 251 faculty and faculty with voting rights.

In her message to campus on Friday, Smith defended the integrity of the partnership.

“Ultimately, I drew from the college’s mission and my fundamental belief that our ability to engage in exchanges of diverse and often conflicting views is critical to the liberal arts, not to rule them out,” she wrote. ?I was specifically thinking of one of the college learning objectives created by our faculty, where we commit to: ‘Students will explore different cultures, ideas, institutions and means of expression in order to enable them to critically examine their own perspective. ‘ ?

She also said that college participation should not be tied to blanket approval of any defense policy or military action to implement it.

The project, launched in 2016, is named after Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain, a professor at Bowdoin College who was also a Union officer in the Civil War. The aim of the organization is to bridge the ?civil-military gap? and to train future leaders from the fields of civil society, culture and economy through the armed forces. The scholarship holders teach two classes, supervise students and take part in school activities. The project is funded by the Jennifer and Jonathan Allan Soros Foundation. Jonathan Soros is the son of progressive billionaire George Soros.

Other participating colleges are Amherst, Barnard, Bowdoin, Hamilton, Oberlin, Vassar and Wellesley as well as Lehigh University in Bethlehem. Anyone can accept or reject a scholarship holder recommended by the project. If accepted, the project pays 50% of the cost and the college pays the rest.

Those who opposed the partnership were discouraged by Smith’s decision. A faculty member contacted by The Inquirer said she was “too sad” to even talk about it.

Another, Lee Smithey, professor of peace and conflict studies and sociology, said he and others were disappointed “especially since the president’s decision raises questions about faculty leadership and the history, mission and values ??of the college.” But he added: “I am grateful for the extensive commitment of students, alumni and lecturers on this topic.”

BETHLEHEM, Pennsylvania – Lehigh head coach Fran Troyan has announced the Mountain Hawks team award winners for the 2021 season, a campaign in which the Mountain Hawks made the championship round of the Patriot League tournament for the fourth consecutive year.

Junior Jaelynn Chesson received the Outstanding Athlete Award, which is given to the player who makes the most outstanding athletic contribution to the team’s performance. Chesson was a First Team All-Patriot League and Second Team NFCA All-Region Award winner. She started all 34 games in right field, hitting .389 and leading the Patriot League in doubles (16), home runs (eight) and RBIs (50). The 50 runs are the second highest single season in school history. Chesson finished the year in fourth nationally place in both doubles per game and runs per game.

Carley Barjaktarovich received the Scholar-Athlete Award, which is given to the student athlete who best embodies the ideal of the academic athlete. The junior shortstop was Patriot League Scholar-Athlete of the Year for softball and has a cumulative grade point average of 3.84 as a marketing major. On the field, Barjaktarovich received the awards of the first team of the NFCA All-Region, was the second team of the All-Patriot League and won the defensive player of the year award of the league. Barjaktarovich led the league with a .471 batting average, 57 hits and 19 stolen bases.

Senior Third Baseman Payton Alsobrooks received the Coaches Award, which is given to the person who has made a significant contribution to the well-being of the team in terms of recruitment, improvement or special leadership. As team captain along with Barjaktarovich and Junior Karsen O’Rourke, Alsobrooks was Lehighs most experienced player and led the Mountain Hawks both on and off the field. As a four year contributor to the Braun-Whites, Alsobrooks hit .239 as a senior with 10 RBIs and had 84 hits and 40 RBIs for her career.

“What an incredible trio of winners for our program,” said Troyan. “Payton had to be one of the best leaders ever, Carley combines high-profile softball and high-profile academics at the highest level, and Jaelynn literally came into play more often with runners in goal position.”

The Mountain Hawks overcame a 2-6 non-league start with 14-8 in the Patriot League game and finished second in the league standings. Lehigh won nine of his last 10 regular season games, finishing the year 18-16 overall. The Mountain Hawks lose just two seniors, Alsobrooks and Allyson Dibsie, from a team that made the Patriot League tournament title round for the fourth consecutive year.

She started all 34 games in right field, hitting .389 and leading the Patriot League in doubles (16), home runs (eight) and RBIs (50). The 50 runs are the second highest single season in school history. Chesson finished the year in fourth nationally place in both doubles per game and runs per game.

Carley Barjaktarovich received the Scholar-Athlete Award, which is given to the student athlete who best embodies the ideal of the academic athlete. The junior shortstop was Patriot League Scholar-Athlete of the Year for softball and has a cumulative grade point average of 3.84 as a marketing major. On the field, Barjaktarovich received the awards of the first team of the NFCA All-Region, was the second team of the All-Patriot League and won the defensive player of the year award of the league. Barjaktarovich led the league with a .471 batting average, 57 hits and 19 stolen bases.

Senior Third Baseman Payton Alsobrooks received the Coaches Award, which is given to the person who has made a significant contribution to the well-being of the team in terms of recruitment, improvement or special leadership. As team captain along with Barjaktarovich and Junior Karsen O’Rourke, Alsobrooks was Lehighs most experienced player and led the Mountain Hawks both on and off the field. As a four year contributor to the Braun-Whites, Alsobrooks hit .239 as a senior with 10 RBIs and had 84 hits and 40 RBIs for her career.

“What an incredible trio of winners for our program,” said Troyan. “Payton had to be one of the best leaders ever, Carley combines high-profile softball and high-profile academics at the highest level, and Jaelynn literally came into play more often with runners in goal position.”

The Mountain Hawks overcame a 2-6 non-league start with 14-8 in the Patriot League game and finished second in the league standings. Lehigh won nine of his last 10 regular season games, finishing the year 18-16 overall. The Mountain Hawks lose just two seniors, Alsobrooks and Allyson Dibsie, from a team that made the Patriot League tournament title round for the fourth consecutive year.

VFW Post 4174: It?s an honor! | News, Sports, Jobs

I’m sure we’ve all been somewhere before seeing an honor guard at a funeral, state ceremony, guarding a national monument, parade, sporting event, or even a marathon. However, the main purpose of the honor guard is to render funeral honors.

But the honor guards also serve as guardians of the colors by showing and accompanying the national flag on many ceremonial occasions. They serve as ambassadors for the recruiting effort and are usually military in nature. Each branch of the military has its own official honor guard training team. Service academies, as well as college and university ROTCs and high school JROTCs, are another division of the honor guard.

In the military, the honor guards are not normally used, but members can be individual as needed. The general criteria for becoming an Honor Guard for All Armed Forces are six feet for men and five feet, 10 inches for women. This reasoning arose because it offers consistency between all five common service platoons. In principle, any military unit can act as an honor guard.

To be eligible for the presence of an Honor Guard, a member of the military must either have died on active duty or be a veteran with an honorable discharge who has passed away. The gun salute and taps, along with the ceremonial folding and handing over of the flag, are a very poignant part of a military funeral. However, a 21-gun salute is only fired in honor of a national flag, a sovereign or head of state of a foreign nation, a member of a ruling royal family and the president, ex-president or elected president.

If you watch our honor guard at VFW Post 4174, you will find that these veterans, although they are no longer in their early teens, will proudly walk bigger with every step. They find it an honor to escort a fallen comrade’s flag, and while honoring the veteran’s merits, they continue the military?s beloved lesson by staying by their comrade’s side until the end.

It is an honor to be part of an honor guard and all veterans are welcome to join as part of the unit.
