St. Nicholas Splits with Greensburg: Greensburg takes 7th grade match, but St. Nicholas Claims the 8th grade match.It was a great night of volleyball on Thursday evening at Milan Elementary. Greensburg’s 7th grade defeated St. Nick in 2 sets with scores of 9-25 and 17-25. St. Nicholas top server was Ella Fledderman who served 12/12 with 4 Ace serves.The 8th grade match was intense.

St. Nicholas 8th grade won in 3 sets with scores of 25-13 and 25-24.After winning set 1 quickly, set 2 was a battle.

They slowly came back into the match. The score ended up at 24-24 with a 25 point cap.

Kathman and Gregg anchored the net. Katelynn Bischoff assisted with some setting duties and great defense, and Rachel Kraus played consistently all the way around. Ella Fledderman was able to attack the ball consistently and passed the ball well all evening. It was a total team effort all around.St. Nicholas plays their final match on Tuesday, September 30 at Milan Elementary.Courtesy of STN Coach Debbie Gregg.
It seems weird to say it, but the Lakers have played better this season without Kobe Bryant. Sure, Bryant has his five NBA championships, his fourth-place standing on the NBA’s all-time scoring list and countless game-winners. But as their 104-91 victory Friday against the Minnesota Timberwolves at Staples Center revealed, the Lakers showed they’ve thrived this season when they’ve depended on more than just one player who wears the No. 24 jersey. The Lakers lacked four healthy point guards, including Bryant, who will stay sidelined for the next six weeks because of a fracture in the lateral tibial plateau in his left knee. But Xavier Henry posted 21 points on 8-of-19 shooting at the position.Pau Gasol didn’t have his trusty sidekick in Bryant. But Gasol had 21 points on 10-of-15 shooting, 13 rebounds and eight assists. After hitting a 3-pointer that gave the Lakers a 95-89 lead with 3:58 left, Gasol lowered himself and exchanged high fives with Nick Young as the two traded smiles every step of the way. The exchange instantly went viral. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error It wasn’t always easy.Minnesota chipped away at double-digit Laker leads multiple times. The Lakers’ 19 turnovers also represented a few gaffes. Henry once dribbled off his foot at midcourt. Young once threw a lob pass that didn’t hit the rim. But the Lakers also provided plenty of energy to stave off Bryant’s absence for one night.“That’s how you should play. This is fun,” Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni said. “They have the best job in the world other than maybe mine. If it isn’t fun, something’s wrong.”Bryant didn’t attend the Lakers’ game Friday against Minnesota, and he and Steve Nash (back) will rehab in Los Angeles during the team’s two-game trip with stops at Golden State (tonight) and Phoenix (Monday). Jordan Farmar and Steve Blake will travel, but the Lakers estimated Blake will stay absent for five more weeks while nursing a hyperextended right elbow. The Lakers will re-examine Farmar’s strained left hamstring on Dec. 24 in hopes he could play Christmas Day against the Miami Heat at Staples Center.Can the Lakers make the playoffs with a depleted roster? “We can do that,” said D’Antoni, who estimated the Lakers would need to win either 45 or 46 games to secure a spot. That means the Lakers would have to go at least 34-23 through the next four months. “We got to be a little lucky and we’re going to have to start treading a little bit above .500 for a while,” D’Antoni said. “If we can do that, then we might get some calvary later on when we need it.” Tall task indeed since the Lakers currently rank 10th in a Western Conference, Then again, so is winning without Bryant. “When I turned, he was right there in my face. He got me going,” Gasol said. “We had some fun. That’s important for our team, especially with everything we’ve gone through.”After he ended his 25-point effort with a 3-pointer that put the Lakers up 100-91 with 1:59 left, Young drew imaginary guns back into his holster. Young also took several charges to ensure Lakers fans walked away with free tacos. “Hopefully, I can have the most charges at the end of the year,” Young said. “I think I’m winning.”Yup, the Lakers (13-13) are happy despite Bryant out of the lineup. They’re also 11-9 without him. Meanwhile, the Lakers went 2-3 during Bryant’s presence. He had averaged 13.8 points on 42.5-percent shooting, 6.3 assists and 5.7 turnovers with a noticeable dip in athleticism and ball handling. The Lakers still miss Bryant, mindful he was shaking off rust stemmed from rehabbing his left Achilles tendon for the past eight months. But in a season in which the Lakers have prided themselves on overachieving, Bryant’s latest setback only fed into his teammates’ resolve in overcoming the odds.
PNCR’s Vice Chair raceBy Michael YoungeYouth empowerment, building a stronger grassroots support base and continuing the work currently being undertaken by the current People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR) executive would be the core areas of focus if Annette Ferguson were to be successful in her bid to become the PNCR’s next Vice Chairman. The party’s 20th Biennial Congress is slated for August 17-19.Ferguson, speaking with Guyana Times on Friday, said she remains committed towards working very hard to ensure the PNCR continues to be a strong party which is capable of catapulting Guyana further into the 21st century by providing the highest quality of leadership and policies that could transform its socio-economic dynamics.“If victorious, I will continue in the same manner as I am right now, work hard and serve my people. However, with the assumption of office, it means greater responsibility and accountability to the electorate and party membership. And therefore my number one priority will be to deliver the promise I made during plea for delegates to elect me,” she said.For Ferguson, the core areas of focus would include, but not limited to, building a strong youth arm and strengthening of the women’s arm; the continuous mobilisation of the masses; the development of strategies for the sustainability of the PNCR, and the implementation of programmes so that members can be trained and be exposed to the ideologies and philosophies of the founder Leader.“Whether elected or not, I will continue to contribute my ideas and plans to thosePNCR Executive Annette Fergusonvested with the responsibility of taking this party forward. I believe our ideas and plans are sound and will greatly benefit the enter membership of the party as whole. Today we compete as comrades because we are both aspiring for an office where only one can be elected; however, after that we have to pick the pieces up and work together to the betterment of Guyana,” Ferguson said during the interview.Asked what inspired her to run for the office of Vice Chairman at such a young age, given that there are more experienced party members who feel entitled after waiting their turn, Ferguson explained that she accepted the nomination of her party group because she wanted to make a difference in the way the party is administered and response to the core interest groups that constitute the key demographics in the country.“…According to the 2012 Population Census report, approximately 64 per cent of Guyana’s population is 35 years and younger. You asked me what inspires me to run at such a young age; that ought to give you an idea. I bring balance and representation to the demographics of Guyana. Young people must be given a fair chance to govern and what better role to start in than that of the Vice Chairman where you provide support to the leader and also learn and at the same time, share fresh ideas and perspective,” she remarked.The PNCR executive who currently serves as the country’s Minister within the Public Infrastructure Ministry, also explained that she has been meeting with delegates from the various regions and has been putting forward her “case” to the party’s membership.“I believe we have done a good job in sharing our proposal and vision. The feedback is that we have generated enough interest and support from the membership… in terms of where is my biggest support base. It is a difficult question because we have been openly welcomed in the areas we have visited so far. For delegates who may still be indecisive, I solicit your support and will make a difference once given the opportunity to do so,” she explained.She even expressed satisfaction with the work being done by the Congress Committee so far to ensure that the event runs smoothly and is of high standard.“The bar has been set very high, but I am glad that we are on track with preparations. We want our delegates and comrades to feel please that they are part of a wonderful party with a solid legacy, so a lot of work has been done for this Congress. We have done everything that we can do for this Congress, so I am pleased with the preparations,” the PNCR Executive remarked.Ferguson insisted that the PNCR has a crucial role to play in building a modern democratic Guyana.“We are witnessing one of the greatest wealth discoveries of this country. And with the discovery of great wealth will come great responsibility in its fair and equal distribution. The PNCR is committed to ensuring every Guyanese gets a fair share of the pie and not just a selected few,” she added.Ferguson served as one of the representatives of the PNCR in the 10th Parliament and has held several other leadership posts in the past.
Anyone can participate in gold panning, all that is needed is precision, skill and endurance.(Image: South African Gold Panning Association) The competitors receive a gold pan and a bucket of sand in which a number of gold nuggets are hidden.

The local team claimed first position and 16 medals – the most it has ever won – at the 2012 World Gold Panning Championships, which took place in the historic town of Pilgrim’s Rest in Mpumalanga, where gold was first discovered in 1873.Sibongile Nkosi, director of communications for Mpumalanga’s Department of Culture, Sport and Recreation (DCSR), confirmed that the local team outperformed Finland, one of its biggest competitors, to win five gold, six silver and five bronze medals. Finland came second, with 12 medals, and Sweden claimed third position with four medals.The gold medals went to South Africa’s Bianca Brower, Morele Keabetswe, The Tigers three-person team, Albie Nyschen and Mia Mason.“It is the first time that we got so many medals,” Nkosi says, adding that the team’s success will help to market the sport in South Africa.The South African Gold Panners Association (SAGPA) partnered with the Pilgrim’s Rest Museum and DCSR to generate more publicity for the sport. In 1997, the country participated in the South African Open Gold Panning Championships for the first time and since then, South Africa has hosted the world tournament twice, in 2005 and again this year.The South African events have also drawn competitors from the UK, Caribbean Islands, the US, Canada, Mozambique, Botswana, Switzerland, New Zealand, Zambia and Namibia.Precision and patienceGold panning is not an expensive sport to get into, but it does require precision, skill and endurance.“Many people don’t understand the sport. What makes our team so successful is that it is a sport where people have a passion,” Nkosi says. “You need a lot of time and patience to look for the nuggets.”The competitors receive a gold pan and a bucket of sand in which a number of gold nuggets are hidden. The winner must retrieve the most nuggets in the shortest time using the traditional gold panning technique.The number of nuggets in the buckets of sand is only known to the chief judge and participants are penalised for lost nuggets.Gold panning is a manual technique used to separate gold from other materials, and is considered the easiest method to search for gold.The technique isn’t commercially viable to extract large deposits, but these days panning is often marketed as a tourist activity on previous gold fields, such as those of Pilgrim’s Rest, where a lucky miner called Alec ‘Wheelbarrow’ Patterson first discovered the precious metal.Wide, shallow pans are filled with sand and gravel that might contain gold. The pan is then submerged in water and shaken, sorting the gold from the gravel and other material. As gold is much denser than rock, it quickly settles to the bottom of the pan.A gold rush for South AfricaMake no mistake; gold panning might be a relatively unknown sport but it isn’t a leisurely pastime for contenders.“The participants undergo training. It is just like training for the Olympics,” Nkosi says.The participants are competitive and skilled in the art of panning – not unlike many of the early prospectors who flocked to South Africa’s gold fields to make their fortunes.The difference is that in the competition there are only small grains of gold hidden in the buckets, and they aren’t of much value.The gold mining industry and the art of panning is part of South Africa’s heritage, and the 1873 gold rush to Pilgrim’s Rest was one of the iconic events that signalled the start of the gold industry in South Africa.What followed was the Witwatersrand gold rush in 1886.The discovery of a gold reef at Langlaagte Farm in the Witwatersrand was considered a significant find, which ultimately led to South Africa becoming one of the world’s largest gold producers in the world.These events led to the establishment of what is known today as the greater Gauteng region and the founding of Johannesburg, the economic centre of South Africa and the continent.Promoting the sportNkosi hopes that interest in gold panning will grow, as more people become aware of the sport.“We have the skills and the veterans who started the competition many years ago,” she says, adding that anyone can participate.South Africa is the youngest member of the World Gold Panning Association’s 20 member countries. Over the past 10 years SAGPA has made it possible for more than 80 South Africans to attend world championship events in Europe, Australia and Japan.
“The participants made an effort to inspire and educate individuals, schools, communities, corporate South Africa and policymakers to consider the environment and the challenges that we face as a nation and indeed as a continent,” says Ella Bella Constantinides Leite, director of Miss Earth South Africa.

India’s batsmen plundered runs and spin spearhead Ravichandran Ashwin got among the wickets against Sri Lanka but it was the resurgence of paceman Ishant Sharma that probably pleased captain Virat Kohli most ahead of their tour of South Africa.Sri Lanka had lost 9-0 to India across all formats a few months back and were therefore never expected to provide the ideal preparation for what will be a challenging trip to South Africa for the world’s top-ranked Test team.After the rain-curtailed opening match at Kolkata’s Eden Gardens ended in a draw, Kohli’s men crushed the visitors by an innings and 239 runs in the second Test, matching their biggest winning margin in the longest format.India’s batsmen compiled up a mammoth first-innings total against Sri Lanka’s toothless attack, while the spin duo of Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja combined to pick up 13 of the touring side’s 20 wickets in Nagpur.But it was Ishant’s match haul of 5-80 that the skipper described as the standout bowling performance of the match.”Even on this wicket, to have that kind of bounce and trouble the batsmen regularly, I think Ishant was outstanding,” Kohli said at the post-match presentation on Monday.”Although the spinners obviously did a good job for us, I think Ishant was the standout bowler in this game.”India’s biggest victory margin until Monday’s win was against Bangladesh in Dhaka in 2007, a Test in which Ishant made his debut as a 18-year-old.The lanky right-arm paceman was marked as the future leader of India’s fast bowling attack and while he has gone on to play 78 Tests he has failed to live up to those lofty expectations.advertisementAfter falling behind Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav in the pecking order, the emergence of Bhuvneshwar Kumar as a swing bowler has only made it tougher for Ishant and his chances have largely come due to the unavailability of other fast bowlers.He played three out of four Tests against Australia earlier this year after Shami was ruled out with a knee injury but played no part in three Tests in Sri Lanka in July-August, though he kept himself fit and in form by picking up 20 wickets in four matches for Delhi in the Ranji Trophy.Ishant would probably not have played in Nagpur had Bhuvneshwar not withdrawn from the final two Tests to get married and Shami was not ruled out due to a slight injury concern.In Nagpur, he extracted good bounce and movement from a batting-friendly track, which could prove crucial in South Africa with India set to face wickets that are expected to aid the faster bowlers.”The way Umesh and Shami and even Bhuvi were bowling was tremendous. I didn’t take much wickets in the last 12 Tests I played, specially in India. They deserved to get a chance before me,” Ishant said after Monday’s win.”The problem for me was the wicket column was always empty. But now I am getting wickets, I am felling pretty good about myself.”It’s a healthy competition the way everyone is performing. When you get an opportunity you have to take wickets.”
