Jamestown Tarp Skunks GM Says He Will Not Renew His 2021 Contract

first_imgShare:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window) WNY News Now File Image.JAMESTOWN – The General Manager of the Jamestown Tarp Skunks has chosen not to renew his contract as General Manager of the ballclub for the 2021 season.GM Frank Fanning says he plans to fulfill his July 1 Memorandum of Understanding with the team and is not aware of any new job postings at this time.Earlier this year the team postponed their 2020 season because of the COVID-19 pandemic concerns.Fanning released the following statement to local media Wednesday afternoon: “I enjoyed meeting a lot of people in Jamestown, there were some great times.” Fanning said. “I’m proud of the splash that the Tarp Skunks made. I so appreciate the renewed fan interest in baseball; every day I was here I had the fans in mind – especially the children and families.”“Baseball is sometimes a season by season sport for players, as we all know; and sometimes it is season by season for members of the front office as well. Even when there’s no season. For the most part, I was signed for one year to turn the franchise around, and I made good on my promise. The current global climate plays a factor into my decision too, it’s time for me to return home.”“On January 22nd, over 3 million people saw the name “Jamestown NY” and “Chautauqua County” hit their newsfeeds when the team relaunched the brand at Jamestown Community College. #SkunkJunk merchandise has outsold the last five total years of the prior grape logo, and many more millions of impressions have been made since the relaunch. Excitement has been generated with everything from merchandise specials, to a fundraiser for the St. Susan’s Center.”“We made Politico. That says it all. A collegiate team just crushing it. We had so many local businesses like Ecklof Bakery who got so excited about the brand – Chad just went to another level! Plus, the folks at Forte making an Oreo-skunk drink. We had fans sending in pictures of themselves wearing their #SkunkJunk. We’ve got great sponsors in PA and western New York who believed what I was talking about. It’s an easy sell when you and the client are both passionate about revitalizing Jamestown baseball and bringing it to another level.”“The ‘Tarp Skunks’ brand is a gift to Jamestown. It is so baseball-universal, and the groundwork is laid for the management group to continue to do something special with it. It requires serious work and attention to sustain. I remember late nights in the office, 2 or 3 in the morning, drawing the uniforms and caps and researching popular MiLB designs for apparel, preparing huge orders of merchandise. I remember meeting with Brandiose in San Diego to shoot ideas around, and working with Randy at the Jock Shop weeks before release to put together a wide-ranging first line of items. Some of this experience was really fun and exciting,” says Fanning.“There were obviously challenges, but I always felt like I could overcome anything. Now, it’s up to the Board of Directors to maintain that momentum and continue the positive trend, the goal was to give Jamestown something it never had before. Here it is. I wish them luck.”“I cannot leave without thanking some of the wonderful people I met: Randy Anderson at the CSHOF was helping with prospecting right from the start; Mayor Eddie Sundquist – a breath of fresh air to Jamestown, he had my back the whole time; my Assistant, Kyle Hammond, worked tirelessly at his first ever sports job and is a huge part of the success; Greg Peterson was always there for me too. George Sisson at JCC always provided a great dose of reality in all of our meetings. Randy Marsh and the guys at the Jock Shop are co-builders of this brand. And of course, the golden era is still represented through the knowledge, trustworthiness, and integrity of Russ Diethrick AKA Mr. Baseball.”last_img read more

48 Hours in Knoxville, TN

first_imgKnoxville, Tennessee has long been known (and winning as  Top Town 2015 in our magazine) as a fantastic base camp for exploring the nearby wilds of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Big South Fork National River & Recreation Area, the Obed Wild and Scenic River, and the Cumberland Plateau. However in 2016, this rapidly evolving city of 183,000 plus—home to the University of Tennessee—has more possibilities for outdoor adventures within its city limits than could ever be imagined. Last year the city crushed nation-wide competition to win a $100,000 grant from Bell Helmets which resulted in the construction of the Devil’s Racetrack, a wild and burly downhill gravity trail within the city limits that everyone won’t stop talking about. And with solid year-round work in land conservation and recreation promotion from local entities such as the Legacy Parks Foundation, Knoxville is fast becoming one of the hottest outdoor cities on the east coast.img_0527When you arrive:As soon as you pull into town be sure to go into the Visit Knoxville visitor center downtown (free parking) and pick up maps, information, merchandise, and more. This place and its staff  are a wealth of knowledge for the trails and outdoor opportunities all over the city. If you show up to the center during the lunch hour Monday-Saturday, you will even catch a free bluegrass or Americana show courtesy of the WDVX Blue Plate special.Also be sure to go by and pay a visit to the  Outdoor Knoxville Adventure Center. (I mean really…how many cities can say they have their own adventure center?) Situated on Volunteer Landing in the heart of downtown along the shores of the Tennessee River, this operation supported by the Legacy Parks Foundation is another essential hub of information and resources. Maps, clinics, bike/canoe/SUP rentals and more will assure that you never have a lack of outdoor pursuits at your fingertips while you’re in town.Outdoor Knoxville Adventure CenterOutdoor Knoxville Adventure Center: Photo courtesy of Legacy Parks FoundationDay One Adventures:Explore the South Loop Trail in the Urban WildernessSituated across the river and only 10 minutes from downtown, the Urban Wilderness is one of the crown jewels of today’s thriving outdoor scene in Knoxville. Consisting of 1,000 acres, 5 parks, and 42 miles of trails, this interconnected system of mostly single-track trails is a hotbed for running, hiking, and biking. The Main Loop of the Corridor is a 12.5 mile route that connects all of the various parks and their systems. A couple of must-see areas of the loop include the Hastie Natural Area which offers a lot for mountain bikers and trail runners and Mead’s Quarry with its beautiful lake where you can even rent bikes, boats, and stand up paddleboards from a seasonal booth by the trusted professionals at River Sports Outfitters. You could easily spend all 48 hours of your Knoxville time just playing in the Urban Wilderness.KUW Hastie park runnersTrail running in Hastie Natural Area of the Urban Wilderness:  photo courtesy of Legacy Parks FoundationClimb through the treetops at Ijams Nature CenterThe Ijams Nature Center is a beautiful and educational 300-acre preserve that falls within the Urban Wilderness.

More than 50 species of fish call this river home and the surrounding 360-acre park is Tennessee’s first birding park, complete with over 8-miles of trails and 180 species of birds. Before leaving town to explore this park, be sure to seek out fishing beta and any tips on pursuing the river’s smallmouth bass from the good folks at 3 Rivers Angler.Screen Shot 2015-07-20 at 1.10.00 PMFishing the French Broad near Seven Islands: photo courtesy of Outdoor KnoxvilleHike the tallest peak in the countyHouse Mountain stands prominently in a 500-acre natural area riddled with vertical bluffs, rock houses, huge boulders, and craggy overlooks that provide magnificent views of the Cumberland Mountains, the Unaka range, the Smokies, and downtown Knoxville.

Berger supports, gives analysis of CHOICE Act

Berger added that NAFCU was the only financial services trade association to oppose the CFPB having authority over credit unions. He noted that since the second quarter of 2010, the industry has lost 1,660 federally-insured credit unions – more than 22 percent of the industry.last_img read more

NY Auto Giant Raises $103K For LI Girl With Rare Disease

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Full disclosure: This story involves New York Auto Giant (NYAG), one of the five organizations that sponsor the Long Island Press website. Details about their involvement can be viewed here. Every Press “Patron” waives the right to pitch the Press or influence our non-sponsored editorial content. The subject of this article arose from a conversation between the principals of the Press and NYAG. We think you’ll understand why we decided to write it. Danielle Carney of Bayport calls the people of NY Auto Giant her “angels in heaven.” Ever since the day, four years ago, when co-owner Michael Brown read an article about Carney’s daughter Marisa in a local newspaper, the roads between the Carneys’ journey and NY Auto Giant intersected for good.Marisa Carney is a bright, energetic 8-year-old girl who suffers from a disease called ROHHAD (Rapid-Onset Obesity with Hypothalamic Dysfunction, Hypoventilation and Autonomic Dysregulation), which affects her ability to breathe for extended periods of time off of a respirator. Since she was diagnosed with this rare illness at 4 years old, her parents have been working tirelessly to bring attention to this disease and to help her. ROHHAD affects only 75 people worldwide. Because it is so rare, there is virtually no research or funding to finding treatment or a cure. The life expectancy of people with ROHHAD is just 13 years old. This December, with a generous donation of $100,000 from NYAG, brought a shimmer of hope to what had thus far been a very bleak outcome.“This is not a charity to us anymore,” said Anthony Fiore, NYAG director of marketing and advertising. “Marisa is like part of our family.”Since meeting Marisa when he started with the company three years ago, Tony has taken a personal interest in her cause. He stops at her house almost weekly on his way home from work. He even threw her eighth birthday party at the Sayville movie theater, a red carpet event where the children pulled up in limousines, dressed in ball gowns. The event raised $8,000 for Marisa. “When it comes to kids, man,” Tony said, his voice trailing off as he choked up. “There isn’t enough you could do.”Marisa Carney and her parents pose with a $103,250 check from NY Auto Giant to help the 8-year-old and her family in their battle with the rare disease ROHHAD.Marisa is currently being treated at the Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago by Dr. Debra Weese-Mayer, who named the disorder and is researching the genetic origins of the disease, which affects the hypothalamus—the part of the brain that regulates functions that are automatic in most people, including the nervous system, the metabolism, her breathing and her temperature. Marisa depends on a ventilator to breathe for all except four to five hours per day. But she doesn’t let that slow her down. “She mopped up my daughters in this dance game,” said Michael Brown, NY Auto Giant co-owner. “She was holding a ventilator.”Brown took an active interest in Marisa four years ago, when he came upon a weekend article in Newsday detailing her disease and struggle. Brown has twin daughters who are the same age as Marisa. The story hit home for him. “I came in and handed one of my general managers the paper and said, ‘Listen. I don’t know what we’re going to do, but you figure something out. I’m not letting this story sit on my desk. We’ve got to do something. This is a real kid. We donate to all these charities. I want to help this kid,’” he told the Press. Dr. Weese-Meyer is conducting a genetic study with approximately 20 children who suffer from ROHHAD. Both the children and the parents submitted blood samples. Weese-Meyer will study the stem cells of the blood to see if she can isolate any distinguishing abnormality in the children participating in the research. The outcome of the study could provide more information on the disorder and possible connections to obesity and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), a disorder, like ROHHADS, where the lungs suddenly stop automatically pumping, leading to death. Participation in the study did not come cheap. The Carneys needed $100,000 to be included. NY Auto Giant donated $25 for every car sold during November 2014. They met and passed their 5,000-car quota and presented Marisa with a check for $103,250 in December. “They just love our daughter and I’m so happy someone got the point of just—we want to save this girl,” Marisa’s mother Danielle told the Press in a phone interview. “We want to save Marisa. So for us, it’s a blessing that someone took an interest in us and this disease, and especially Marisa, because once you see her—she’s my daughter, but she’s amazing. Her spirit. Her love of life. Her wanting to just be 8. She’s not going to let this disease stop her from being 8. She lights up a room when she’s there. Marisa makes it very easy to want to help her.”Marisa Carney, an 8-year-old in Bayport who lives with a rare disease, painted this for NY Auto Giant co-owner Michael Brown to thank him and the company for raising more than $100,000 to help her and her family. It hangs above his desk in his office at NY Auto Giant.Michael Brown pointed to a framed picture in his office that Marisa painted for him as a thank you this December. “This kid is the most amazing human being I’ve ever seen in my life,” he says.To learn more about Marisa Carney or about how you can help, visit www.ROHHADFight.org.last_img read more

German court rules against school niqab ban

first_imgState law does not currently permit the authorities to impose such a ban, the court said in a statement.The teenager, who is studying retail sales, has “a right to unconditional protection of her freedom of belief” the statement added.Hamburg’s social-democratic education senator Ties Rabe immediately said that he would seek to change the state law. “Only if students and teachers have a free and open face can school and lessons function,” he told local media. German education laws are made at state level rather than by the federal government, but the case is part of a wider debate across the country.High profile politicians in the conservative CDU, the economically liberal FDP and the far-right AfD have all voiced support for a niqab ban in the past, but others remain divided on the issue.The state parliament in neighbouring Schleswig-Holstein failed to pass a ban on full-face veils in its universities and colleges on Monday, after the Green Party voted against it.Topics : A court in Germany ruled Monday against an attempt by authorities in Hamburg to forbid a 16-year-old schoolgirl from wearing a niqab during lessons.The ruling, which cannot be appealed, has fuelled debate in Germany over whether schools should allow the niqab, a facial veil worn by Muslims which leaves only the wearer’s eyes visible.Hamburg education officials had ordered the girl’s mother to ensure that her daughter did not wear the veil at school, a decision which an administrative court overturned on Monday.last_img read more
