dr martens work shoes Boro fears are realised

And although the influential left back was at first hopeful that the injury to his left knee was not too bad he now fears that he has damaged ligaments.

And that could throw Borough, who have one of the smallest squads in the Dr Martens Premier Division, into crisis with manager Roger Ashby likely to have to bring in a player on loan.

A concerned Ashby said today: “It does not look too clever for Micky, he is in a lot of discomfort and was unable to go to work yesterday. He has been icing the injury but it has not made a lot of difference and he fears that he has damaged the knee ligaments.

“Our physio, Richie Norman, will take a good look at Micky tonight but, obviously, he has to be rated as extremely doubtful for Saturday’s home game with Weston Super Mare.

“And that would present us with a major problem as there is no other naturally left footed defender at the club and I would have to look at getting someone in on loan.

“But we do not want to get ahead of ourselves, the first thing is to assess the damage to Micky’s knee tonight.”

Striker Gez Murphy will be back for the Weston game after missing the Tiverton game as his wife gave birth on the morning of the game and young striker James Fox will be hoping to get another chance to impress after going on for the last halfhour at Tiverton.

The 21 year old, who was signed on a non contract basis last Thursday after being released by Tamworth, went on up front in a reshuffled team after Love was carried off following a crunching tackle with Tiverton sweeper Steve Winter.

And Ashby said: “James played up front alongside Kevin Wilkin and showed some nice touches, paces and a lot of promise. He is knee to impress and has an excellent attitude.”

flower doc martens Boro go top in slick win

Boro go top in slick winRampant Boro notched up their biggest home league success since Spring 2001 as they blitzed previously unbeaten Eastbourne at Manor Park on Saturday.10:19, 1 SEP 2003Updated16:44, 26 APR 2013And in doing so Alan Lewer’s boys stretched their own run to five games without defeat that takes them to the top of the Dr Martens Premier Division and very much among the championship favourites.Certainly on the evidence of this latest performance, Boro are going to be a tough team to beat with each department firing on all cylinders.Goals from influential skipper Neil Moore, Brian Quailey, his fifth in as many outings, Terry Angus and substitute Andy Corbett steered the slick moving Blues to an easy success and while the net bulged at one end there was plenty to drool over at the other where keeper Darren Acton and his defenders produced their third clean sheet of the campaign.But the man of the match offering came from wide man Stuart Whittaker who supplied most of the ammunition from which Boro’s pacy strike force of Brian Quailey, Gez Murphy and during the final quarter Andy Corbett, thrived upon.Whittaker’s corners, free kicks and crosses caused untold problems to an Eastbourne rear guard that came under constant fire during 90 minutes which had the Nuneaton faithful purring all weekend.Skipper Moore was full of praise for his team and especially Whittaker. He said: ?Whitty’s quality of crosses made all the difference. I could have two or three goals but I’m grateful for the one I got. It was a perfect corner and I met it just right. But this was a cracking team effort.Everyone played their part and though we were a bit anxious beforehand as Eastbourne were second in the league and unbeaten, once we went in front we were always in control. In the end it was a convincing victory and the scoreline flattered them.?It could have been a few more as we attacked almost non stop in the second half and created a lot of opportunities.?With the midweek 2 0 beating of Hinckley United still fresh in their minds, Boro started where they’d left off as they pressed forward from the first whistle with Whittaker posing an early threat as he surged into the area only to be blocked out.Stuart Tuck then had to clear hastily from the eager Murphy and when Love whipped in a cross Whittaker’s lopping header drifted fractionally too high.Acton then had to go low to his left to grasp Matt Smart’s cross shot before Boro piled on the pressure as the half progressed, keeper Lee Hook throwing himself to his left to turn aside a Murphy 20 yarder following a diagonal run and drive from the striker.And Hook showed his agility as he charged down Quailey’s turning volley after Whittaker’s free kick had deflected to the former West Brom frontman off the defensive wall.The Sussex side were beginning to show signs of cracks, Moore having an effort go over from a Whittaker corner but 90 seconds later the Nuneaton captain was to make no mistake as he rose high above his marker to plant another pinpoint flag kick from Whittaker downwards and into the net from the edge of the six yard box.Suddenly Manor Park was alive and bubbling as the Whittaker Moore combination almost scripted another successful tune but this time the central defender’s header flew to Murphy whose header grazed the paint off the top side of the bar.The second period began in similar vein to the end of the first with Boro pouring forward, Quailey rifling a deflected 15 yarder inches too high before the management duo of Lewer and Dave Norton were dancing in delight to celebrate a second goal.Michael Love, back to his best in the orthodox raiding left back slot, gained possession wide and clipped in the most appetising of crosses for the charging Quailey to thump a powerhouse 10 yarder header high into the rigging with the visiting back line left standing.Within seconds the limping Quailey was replaced by the darting Corbett and soon after Boro should have conceded a penalty when Love dragged Andy Ducille to ground yet referee John Cox somehow missed the incident and Boro duly benefited as two goals in 60 seconds sealed Eastbourne’s fate.On 79 minutes, Whittaker’s corner was half cleared to Fitzpatrick and he fed Angus on the right side of the area and the former Fulham man hoisted the most speculative of chips which totally bemused keeper Hook as the ball spiralled high into the air and sailed just inside the far post.The visitors were stunned and Boro took full advantage with Corbett tanking down the inside right channel and cutting back past Darren Baker to curl a delightful 15 yarder beyond the horizontal Hook and into the far corner of the net.

dr martens 1461 black Bring Uber back to Eugene

It is difficult to remember life before Uber. It saved me from constant subway delays and closures, public transit deserts, monsoon rains and late night excursions. It became something I could not imagine living without. Then I returned to Eugene.

Since 2015, the ride sharing service has been ousted from Eugene for failing to meet local taxi regulations, putting commuters at the mercy of public transit and a handful of taxi companies. But that could soon change. The Eugene City Council opened an opportunity for the company’s return by scheduling a work session this month to discuss changes to the city code to adapt Eugene to the new sharing economy. There has been speculation since 2016 about bringing it back, but now is the time for the city council to stop dragging its feet.

In a mid sized college town with limited public transportation options, Uber provides an opportunity for students and community members to take full advantage of what Eugene has to offer and create new job opportunities.

Ride sharing companies can be more convenient, safer and potentially lifesaving for a college town populated with students. The college culture of binge drinking puts people at risk for drinking and driving or not being able to return home safely. Although the University of Oregon provides two free ride programs, Safe Ride and the Designated Driver Shuttle, these programs and their taxi counterparts are plagued with long wait times,
dr marten rigger boots Bring Uber back to Eugene
and public transportation is also limited as the bus system stops operating at midnight. But scheduling a ride can be difficult if someone has already had one too many drinks. On demand rides from Uber can prevent this while alleviating overburdened services that already exist.

Reintroducing Uber to Eugene could also provide new job opportunities for students and other community members who have struggled to find employment. Students often accommodate their class schedules to fit their job schedule, sacrificing their education for a paycheck. Uber offers a self employment alternative, which expands total employment in cities and increases hourly wages for self employed drivers.

However, there has been some pushback from taxi companies. Threatened from the innovation that ride sharing apps brought to an industry that has not changed for decades, taxi companies around the nation have engaged in rent seeking to protect themselves and their profits from increased competition. But some companies followed Uber’s steps by introducing their own ride sharing apps. Local companies should be encouraged to do the same and adapt to the new sharing economy rather than be shielded from its effects.

Although Uber does bring numerous benefits to the cities it operates in, it does have some problems.

The company has tolerated a culture of sexual harassment, underpaid and mistreated its drivers and engaged in questionable business practices to damage its competitors.

Despite these problems, changing the city code to allow similar companies with better business practices to operate in Eugene, such as Lyft, will ultimately benefit the community. It is time for the city council to read the writing on the wall the sharing economy is here,
dr marten rigger boots Bring Uber back to Eugene
and it is time for Eugene to join it.

where are dr martens made Boys Town police ask for help in locating priest with episodes of dementia

Boys Town police believe the 91 year old was possibly traveling to a spiritual retreat house in St. Louis, the White House Jesuit Retreat House, located at 7400 Christopher Drive.

Officers said Stevens may be suffering from episodes of dementia. The Alzheimer’s Association said wandering is one of the most common symptoms.

Just last Wednesday, Omaha police said Clifford Priebe, a 72 year old man with dementia, went missing.

“Wandering occurs in 6 out of every 10 cases of dementia, so it’s very common,” said Elizabeth Chentland, director of communications for the Alzheimer’s Association. “Often times people will wander in the direction of their dominant hand and often times that can be a couple of blocks away from their home or cross country.”

Chentland said people with dementia often lose their sense of time, as well.

Boys Town police said Father Stevens does not have a cellphone.

If you spot him, please contact the Boys Town Police Department at 402 676 8797.

The Alzheimer’s Association just released its 2018 recommendations for dementia care practices. Chentland said they include new strategies and tips aimed at helping nursing homes, assisted living facilities and other long term care facilities provide quality, person centered care for those living with dementia.

“These recommendations say that no matter what the stage is of the person living with the disease, you have an opportunity to employ tips and strategies that engage them in communication, that focus on their abilities,” Chentland said. “That’s really what these new recommendations do. They focus on a person’s abilities in ways that we haven’t done before.”

ANNAPOLIS Women supporting each other as only they can is one of the resounding expressions of gratitude heard from the 23 women each one of the Faces of Courage honored at the annual Bosom Buddies Ball. The Stevensville nonprofit celebrated the lives, stories and courage of each of those 23 women at a gala Saturday,
size 5 dr martens Bosom Buddies Ball raises
Jan. 13, at The Westin Annapolis and raised $120,000 net all of which will go directly toward raising awareness and the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer, said Bosom Buddies Charities Board Chairman Biana Arentz.

This year’s honorees were both from Queen Anne’s County, Dee Dee Murphy from Grasonville and Christina Cugle from Chester. Murphy was diagnosed with breast cancer in December 2016 at the age of 69. Her cancer was detected early because of her commitment to faithful yearly mammography. “Breast cancer has no age limit,” said Murphy, “but it is what each of us [the Faces of Courage] have in common.”

As Murphy spoke to the guests assembled Saturday evening, she said she believes the most important factors to bolster recovery are early detection and a strong support system. “Bosom Buddies supports us and keeps us well,” sids Murphy.

In 2015, at the age of 39, Cugle was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer. Cugle’s doctors recommended genetic testing, and she learned she was a carrier of the BRCA 1 gene mutation a gene that significantly increases a person’s risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer.

Cugle said her life was normal, routine before her diagnosis. Before cancer, said Cugle, her biggest fear might have been career failure, but now her greatest fear is not being there to raise her child. After 18 months of intense treatment, including chemotherapy, a double mastectomy, reconstructive surgery, a hysterectomy and physical therapy, Cugle is a breast cancer survivor and a director of Bosom Buddies Charities.

“Cancer takes your mortality clock from somewhere in the far distance and puts it right in front of your face,” said Cugle. Hers is one small piece of a bigger story, she said. In 2017 a quarter million new diagnosis of breast cancer were made. Through Bosom Buddies, AAMC and other facilities can provide state of the art care, she said, due to the generosity of their supporters.

Funds for this years ball are targeted mostly for a 3 D Tomosynthesis machine for Anne Arundel Medical Center, Arentz said. Tomosynthesis is a new advancement in digital breast imaging. A replacement for the standard mammography equipment, Tomosynthesis is able to capture a three dimensional image of the breast by taking more than 10 images from different angles of the breast, whereas a mammography is made up of only four images.

At the gala, 265 guests enjoyed passed hors d’oeuvres and camaraderie before dinner, perusing the many silent and live auction items including a Piaggio Typhoon 50 Scooter donated by Mike Eichorn and Chesapeake Cycles, dinner for eight and overnight stay for four couples at the Kent Narrows waterfront, and the chance to win a rose gold necklace filled with pink sapphires and diamonds.

First lady of Maryland Yumi Hogan also attended as a guest, posing for photographs with the committee before the event. She and the Governor have been great supporters of Bosom Buddies Charities, Arentz said, and he was the honorary chairman at last year’s event.

Arentz said she loves the fact that this charity was started on the Eastern Shore and is largely represented by directors from here. Also, one of the Faces of Courage, Laurie Rasinski from Kent Island was the founder of Cancer Comfort Angels and the 2012 Honoree. Rasinski passed away a few years ago; both she and Brenda Dean Abel from Centerville also a Face of Courage and honoree in 2010 were there Saturday evening with them in spirit, said Arentz, adding, they are both an inspiration to many of the women there.

The foundation is the fulfillment of the long time dream of another Queen Anne’s County resident Susan Ponchock. After surviving the diagnosis of an aggressive type of breast cancer, the trauma of surgery and stem cell transplant, chemotherapy and radiation, Ponchok made a vow to give back and Bosom Buddies was born.

This year Bosom Buddies Charities celebrates its 11th anniversary. Through its fundraising efforts and the support of local business and individuals, the charity has raised more than $1.5 million to date.
