Cohen: Marrone’s punishments of Spruill, Rene hypocritical to no-nonsense approach

The once-proud program — it’s easy to forget Jim Brown used to run wild in Central New York — seemed to have plummeted toward a state of irrelevancy once the 20th century gave way to the 21st.It hit rock bottom under Greg Robinson, a laid-back coach with a laid-back approach, who handed out free time and perks “that winning programs should be given,” as former defensive tackle Andrew Lewis (Class of 2011) said.Only his teams weren’t winning. Rather, they were piling up losses at an alarming rate.“The previous seasons we were, what, 3-9, 4-8, 1-and-terrible and 2-and-terrible?” said Lewis, who is a vocal supporter of Marrone. “… At that point it was like here is our chance to start over new. The old way wasn’t working.”Marrone was the new way, the antithesis of his predecessor. He would restore his alma mater using discipline, which he wielded with a heavy hand. The result was a 28-player exodus in a one-year period from spring 2009 to spring 2010 as Marrone “definitely tried to send a message,” in the words of Lewis, to create the culture he wanted. Many players were dismissed while others chose to leave because of the ways Marrone’s vision clashed with that of Robinson’s.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAs he weeded out the players who wouldn’t — or couldn’t — buy into his philosophy, he developed a reputation as a no-nonsense coach. Any rule violation or misstep could be costly, as former fullback Adam Harris explained. That belief is reflected in former defensive tackle Lamar Middleton’s dismissal over an alleged curfew violation, he told The Daily Orange back in 2010. Marrone would not confirm or deny the validity of Middleton’s remarks when given the chance to comment after that season.But the most recent behavioral issue Marrone has faced — the arrests of running back Steve Rene and starting linebacker Marquis Spruill in early December —yielded a response from the head coach that is hypocritical when juxtaposed with his handling of disciplinary matters earlier in his career. That Spruill will suit up for the Pinstripe Bowl, albeit in a reduced fashion, after police reports indicate he laid hands on a police officer and almost struck an officer in the face when he kicked the door of a police van, is a disgrace.It probes the validity of Marrone’s professed commitment to ensuring his players are developing as people first, and football players second.“I would almost challenge that if that was exactly how it happened (with Spruill and Rene), there would have obviously been more punishment for the situation,” said Harris, who graduated in May. “… I know that when I was there, and if those events were true, then they wouldn’t be playing and they would pretty much be begging to still be on the team.”Perhaps, then, Marrone has changed his ways in regard to discipline. Or maybe he doesn’t believe the police report and newspaper articles derived from that report were entirely accurate. (Harris, who speaks highly of Marrone as a coach and an individual, questioned the newspaper articles.) Regardless, it deserves an explanation from the head coach.Both Marrone and Athletic Director Daryl Gross declined to comment for this column. Marrone issued the following statement through an athletic department spokesperson Saturday:“Our policy is to not discuss team matters outside of football as these matters are handled internally.”But when the internal handling begins to change, the coach would be wise to offer an explanation. There was a pattern established during the handful of previous arrests of Syracuse football players under Marrone, and this pattern was broken in the handling of the situation of Rene and Spruill.In the past, Marrone tended to suspend players almost immediately after they were arrested. It happened with Delone Carter, Jonny Miller, Marcus Sales and Terrel Hunt. The announcement was relayed in a statement that said the matter would be handled internally and then Marrone would announce a punishment, if there was one, at a later date.Marrone suspended Hunt for an entire spring season after he was charged with misdemeanor petit larceny in connection with stolen cologne from the Carousel Center. Sales was suspended for an entire season for charges that were eventually dropped. Carter was suspended nearly four months after he faced criminal charges for punching a fellow Syracuse student in the face. And Marrone suspended Miller immediately after he was arrested in connection with a robbery and assault.Applying this template to Marrone’s handling of the Rene/Spruill situation illustrates important differences. Neither Rene nor Spruill was suspended from the football program at the time of his arrest. Rather, each player will not be allowed to play “a significant portion” – whatever that means – of the next game for which they are healthy. In Spruill’s case, this is the Pinstripe Bowl, and for Rene, who is currently out with an injury, this likely means the season opener in 2013.Rene and Spruill had their cases adjourned until Jan. 30. But if police reports are to be believed, resisting arrest to the extent that a police dog is needed to secure the situation (Rene) and laying hands on an officer before kicking the door to a police van, nearly striking an officer in the face (Spruill) warranted a less-than-one-game suspension.What? Really? Under Doug Marrone?“It’s hard to say (if there has been a change in Marrone),” said the aforementioned Andrew Lewis, who missed the 2010 Pinstripe Bowl himself after violating an unspecified team rule. “I didn’t think Delone was going to return. I didn’t think Marcus was going to return either.“Every situation is different.”Apparently so. And this situation is the most different of all. It’s just too bad Marrone won’t tell us why.Michael Cohen is a staff writer at The Daily Orange, where his column appears occasionally.

Keane accuses Man Utd players of ‘getting away with murder’

first_img“And then for some of them to down tools, shame on some of those players.“I’m not Mourinho’s biggest fan, don’t get me wrong but I just can’t tolerate footballers who just hide behind their agents, their pals in the media. It’s a bit of a joke, really.”Keane won seven Premier League titles, four FA Cups and the Champions League at United and believes any player unrest during his time in the dressing room would have been quelled.“The modern player, they’re not just weak players, they’re very weak human beings,” he said. “You can’t say a word to them.”He added: “It wouldn’t have happened in our dressing room just because of the fact we had good characters and good leaders. We wouldn’t have tolerated lads not putting a shift in.”Share on: WhatsApp London, United Kingdom | AFP | Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane has accused the current crop of players at Old Trafford of getting away “with murder” and of throwing Jose Mourinho “under the bus”.The Irishman’s broadside comes just days after Mourinho was sacked as United manager, having presided over their worst-ever start to a Premier League season.Former United player Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was this week named caretaker manager until the end of the season.Mourinho had reportedly fallen out with several of his first-team stars towards the end of his two-and-a-half-year tenure at the helm of United and Keane feels the behaviour of the players may be at least partly to blame.Speaking to BBC Radio 5 live, Keane said: “I do think the players obviously get away with murder. Just the way they hide behind the manager….They have thrown him under the bus.”“People said Mourinho has been falling out with players. Well, you would fall out with players, that’s the name of the game when players turn up overweight or players aren’t training properly and not producing.last_img read more

Photo courtesy Olympia Community SchoolThurston County’s oldest alternative secular elementary school will be all about “the new” this September – gleaming new child-friendly facilities, a newly added fifth grade, and now a new, highly skilled teacher.Joanna Gibson will join the Olympia Community School (OCS) to teach the school’s small fourth/fifth grade class. Gibson joins OCS from teaching fifth grade at Bordeaux Elementary in Shelton. She also taught at Lincoln Options in Olympia, the Montessori School of Northern Virginia, and the Twin Oaks homeschooling cooperative, also in Virginia. She holds a Masters of Arts in Teaching from Trinity Washington University in Washington, D.C., and an undergraduate degree from St. Mary’s College of Maryland.OCS students began the school year in a brand new building. Photo courtesy: Olympia Community School“We are thrilled to have Joanna join OCS,” said Jane Zerbe, OCS board president. “She is wonderfully suited to do what we do here – inspire, motivate, and challenge our kids. She will empower our students by nurturing their natural curiosity and desire to learn, their belief in themselves, and their ability to participate fully in their community with respect for self, others, and the earth.”“I’m excited to be joining OCS for many reasons,” Gibson said. “One big one is my ability to work one-on-one with each child when needed. My class will be small. In my experience, that is critical to effective teaching.”OCS class sizes never exceed 14 students to one teacher, which is significantly fewer than in public schools, where the number of students can be nearly double. Students at OCS enjoy a wide variety of activities and small class sizes. Photo courtesy: Olympia Community SchoolThe decision to add a fifth grade and become a complete elementary school is a natural progression “We are thriving. More parents are recognizing the value of an alternative elementary education,” Zerbe said.Founded in 1973, Olympia Community School offers two-year kindergarten beginning at age 4 through fifth grades to meet the demand for quality alternative education.The expansion is an exciting opportunity for the community, and OCS plans to host a Grand Opening event, as well as ongoing tours of their new facility.  Enrollment for the 2016/17 school year is nearly full, interested parents should contact the school at [email protected] or call 360.866.8047.last_img read more

Beacon Hill Country Club Earns Eco-Friendly Badge

first_imgBy Chris Rotolo |ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS – The game of golf is played among natural beauty, and Beacon Hill Country Club is doing its part to preserve and enhance its course and property. The ACSP provides an educational service to help existing golf courses develop effective conservation and wildlife enhancement programs, an effort that Mueller credits golf course superintendent Tim Meyer for spearheading. Earlier this month Beacon Hill Country Club received recognition in environmental planning from the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program (ACSP) for Golf Courses, a worldwide initiative administered by Audubon International which is designed to help golf courses and open green spaces maintain their property to higher and healthier standards.“This is certainly a designation that we’re ver y proud of,” said Alexander Mueller, Beacon Hill Country Club general manager. “It’s always been a goal of ours to maintain a course that is environmentally friendly and harmonious with nature, but with this program we saw an opportunity to increase our standards even further.” One club member, Robert Breeden, has been an advocate for ACSP enrollment and said he’s witnessed a concerted effort by his fellow members to live up to the standards set by the program.“I can speak for our membership when I say that we’re proud and thrilled to be ACSP certified,” Breeden said. “This is a significant accomplishment, a three-year process, in which we have to demonstrate environmental leadership in the golf industry. To do that takes an effort from all of our members. And now we have to continue to educate our fellow golfers and club members about the benefits of maintaining this effort.”A bird watcher as well as an avid golfer, Breeden spoke of the importance of not only maintaining the club’s efforts for a healthier environment but sustaining it for generations to come.“Cemeteries and golf courses are really the only green spaces left in suburbia, so we have a big responsibility to take care of ours and ensure that it’s taken care of when we’re no longer here,” Breeden said. “Part of the experience of playing golf is enjoying the natural surroundings. And being part of the ACSP is only going to benefit our grounds, our golfers and the game itself.”This article first appeared in the June 21 – 28, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times. Beacon is the 19th golf course in New Jersey to be included in ACSP and is the first course in Monmouth County to earn the designation.“There is a movement amongst courses taking place around the world, especially in areas of this country near the Everglades and in other coastal regions where people are really making an effort to take care of these sensitive environments,” Mueller said. “We’re excited to be piggybacking off those efforts and joining the movement.” After the environmental plan is designed, approved and implemented, properties in the program may apply for recognition in wildlife and habitat management, chemical use reduction and safety, water conservation, water quality management, and outreach and education by demonstrating they have met minimum requirements for each category.Once the course has been recognized in all categories, they are designated a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary. By joining and participating in the ACSP, Beacon Hill Country Club will be involved in projects that enhance habitat for wildlife and preserve natural resources for the benefit of the local community. These projects may include placing nesting boxes for cavity-nesting birds such as bluebirds and swallows, utilizing integrated pest management techniques, conserving water and maintaining food and cover for wildlife.With an 88-acre course that includes pockets of wetlands, several freshwater streams and irrigation ponds and various local wildlife, Mueller believes these projects will only be successful if the club’s membership adopts a similar mindset.last_img read more

Fishmonger left devastated after theft of €5,000 boat engine

first_imgA fisherman and fishmonger has been left devastated after becoming the latest victim of a crime-gang carrying out engine thefts in south Donegal.Seamus McHugh is struggling to make ends meet selling fish around the various markets and stalls in his native county.But he is now counting the cost after heartless thieves stole the engine from his boat which was moored at Port Pier, Inver on Tuesday night last. The Yamaha engine is worth up to €5,000 and is not insured as insurance companies will not insure boatowners because they are vulnerable when the tide goes out.The theft is the latest in what has become a spate of such expensive engine thefts in south Donegal.One man had three engines stolen at Bruckless Pier.Seamus said there is no question that the thieves are well organised. “I had the bolts welded onto the engine as well as a lock and they still managed to get it off.“They knew exactly what they were at and they were even looking at other engines nearby with a view to stealing them at a later stage.“People have said to me that not everyone would buy a stolen engine that was being sold cheaply;y but who is to say that they are being sold on locally and not overseas?” he asked.Many have suggested installing CCTV along piers but because of privacy laws Donegal County Council has so far not installed cameras.Seamus said he is lucky that he can make ends meet as he has a business trading in fish which he can fall back on. “As much as it is so annoying and has set me back I can continue to make a living as a fishmonger.“But this kind of thing could have stopped someone from making a living. It’s just not on,” he said.Seamus also revealed that he could not get insurance for his engine.“Because the tides my engine is left exposed and the insurance company would not entertain me,” he added. Seamus operates his fish trailer at various parts of Donegal including Letterkenny and also at his shop at Mountcharles.Anybody who may know of there whereabouts of his engine can contact Seamus and speak to him personally.Fishmonger left devastated after theft of €5,000 boat engine was last modified: May 25th, 2019 by StephenShare 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

School Water Often Goes Untested for Lead

first_imgSchools in 35 states are not required to test their drinking water for lead,  research by The Center for Green Schools has found. In the remaining 15 states and the District of Columbia, testing may be encouraged rather than required, and not all states require that parents be notified of the results, U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) said. The report, “Perspectives on State Legislation Concerning Lead Testing in School Drinking Water,” said that federal laws do not offer any protection to students from possible exposure to lead in water available at school. State laws that address the issue are very recent, the USGBC said in a release, with the earliest law enacted in Ohio just two years ago.RELATED ARTICLESIs Your Drinking Water Safe?Is There Lead in the Water of Your Green Building?Piping as PoisonStudy Finds EPA Lax in Protecting California WaterManaging Lead Paint Hazards Lead is a dangerous neurotoxin that can hinder brain development in children. Federal law requires that regulated water systems test both the supply and representative outlets for contaminants, but it does not require local authorities to test water in the schools. The Center for Green Schools, part of the USGBC organization, said the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has issued guidance for reducing lead exposure in schools, but makes it voluntary. “The result of the existing federal regulatory framework is that without state action — whether administrative or legislative — many school outlets will not be tested for lead,” the report says. “Without identifying and addressing elevated levels that may be present in schools, any exposure of students and staff to lead will continue unabated.” The report notes that a 2006 recommendation from the EPA suggested that remediation begin when lead is found in concentrations of 20 parts per billion (ppb). But a rewrite of the “3Ts for Reducing Lead in Drinking Water” announced last month has no specific remediation trigger. Instead, schools were directed to consult with local and state authorities and emphasized that there is no safe level of lead for children, according to the report. A survey by the U.S. Government Accountability Office this year said that 43% of school districts had tested water for lead. Forty-one percent had not tested, and the remaining 16% didn’t know one way or the other. The Center said that the 16 testing laws it reviewed are a “promising start” and offer an opportunity to other states to find “even better, more efficient” ways of ensuring students are not exposed to lead.last_img read more
