Indiana currently has no high school field hockey teams. Former OCHS standout and Indiana University player and grad, Danielle McNally, has started a club in Indiana – Crossroads Field Hockey Club – to bring field hockey to the youth of the state. They are hosting a free youth clinic November 18th for girls in grades 4-7 and are in need of new or gently used field hockey sticks.Sticks can be dropped off through November 10th at the home of Dave Allegretto – 9 Arkansas Avenue, Ocean City and the sticks will be mailed to Indiana to support the youth program. The AtlantiCare Foundation is supporting the effort and will cover the shipping costs.Field Hockey has taught many about dedication, hard work and the power of working together as a team. The game has given Ocean City players and the community much to celebrate and a donation will afford others the opportunity to love and learn from the sport.For more information contact Dave Allegretto at 609-602-1662 or [email protected] The 2014 Alumni Game
As Republican Congressional hopeful Jackie Walorski eyes Indiana’s Second District’s seat in the House of Representatives, she said she hopes to bring bipartisanship to a legislature too strongly divided across aisles. “Congress has a record low approval rating due to partisan gridlock and runaway spending that has resulted in an unproductive Congress,” Walorski said. “If I am elected, I will bring Hoosier common sense to Washington.” With the election depending on the votes of Americans without party affiliations, Walorski said in an email interview this week that her team has made a strong effort to appeal to voters who do not self-identify as Republican. “We have built an incredible grassroots team in the Second District, supported by a wide spectrum of Hoosier voters,” she said. “On the campaign trail, we continually hear from voters about their concerns with the direction our country is going. This election is not about political parties, it’s about sending an independent voice to Washington to work on bipartisan solutions to get us back on track.” Walorski said she considers the deficit and other economic issues to be of the utmost importance in this year’s election. “I will work to reduce our $16 trillion [national] debt by supporting a balanced budget amendment and reducing government spending,” she said. “The federal government must learn to live within its means, just like common sense Hoosiers.” Walorski said she will bring the same fiscal policies that helped Indiana restore its financial health while she served as a state representative from 2004 to 2011. “We did this in Indiana by working together to balance the budget, reduce wasteful spending and passing pro-business legislation,” she said. “Indiana successfully restored our AAA-bond rating, turned a deficit into a surplus and is now considered one of the best Midwest states to start a business. “I believe we can use this model in Congress to pass meaningful legislation to get our country back on track,” she said. For students at Notre Dame and across the country, Walorski said job growth and employment are the most important issues. “Many college graduates have difficulty finding a job when they graduate due to our sluggish economy,” she said. “With more jobs, college students are able to quickly enter the workforce and begin building their professional careers. It also makes it easier for students to start paying off their loans.” Indiana college students, she said, have been integral to her campaign. “I’m grateful that our campaign has received support from many local schools and universities, including Notre Dame,” she said. “Many students have volunteered to intern, make phone calls, go door-to-door and attend events for our campaign.” Engaging local politics is an important part of being an informed young voter, she said. “I think it is important for young people to engage themselves with the real issues facing our country,” she said. “All voters should learn about the platform of their local candidates and understand how their representation may affect their futures on all issues.”
The Frenchman has not enjoyed the best of times this season, but a run of seven wins from their last nine league games has put Arsenal back in the hunt for a top-four finish ahead of Saturday’s trip to Craven Cottage. Former Spurs boss Jol thinks Arsenal will end the season successfully. He said: “I admire him, he is an unbelievable manager. He is emotional, he wants to win but even this season if you look at them they have been under pressure. Then they had an unbelievable win at Bayern, they came back and other teams like Chelsea, Spurs and Everton are fighting for a top-three, top-four spot. They are doing it again and I think they will make the top four.” Arsenal have won just one of their last four trips to Craven Cottage and Jol sees Saturday as the ideal opportunity to make amends for Wednesday’s 3-0 west London derby defeat at the hands of Chelsea. “I can remember the team struggling here,” he said. “But, for example, we have done very well against Chelsea over the last four games and then we lost 3-0. “Arsenal have done ever so well the last couple of months. They are on the top now and they want to play Champions League football. “Hopefully we can get back to winning ways because that is important.” Fulham will welcome back influential midfielder Steve Sidwell for Saturday’s game after a three-match ban, although Sascha Riether is a doubt. Alex Kacaniklic could be involved after being recalled from a loan spell at Burnley, while Damien Duff, Ashkan Dejagah and Mahamadou Diarra are all unavailable through injury. Another unavailable player is on-loan Emmanuel Frimpong as he is ineligible to face his parent club. Press Association Fulham manager Martin Jol is confident that Arsene Wenger will again lead Saturday’s opponents Arsenal to a top-four finish.

Submitted by Washington State Liquor Control BoardThe Washington State Liquor Control Board (WSLCB) today issued the state’s first 24 marijuana retailer licenses. A complete listing, including contact information of the new retail licensees, can be found online within the Public Records section of the WSLCB website.The 24 applicants were notified via email early this morning that they were approved for a retail license. Once approved for a license, producers and/or processors are able to file a required manifest for transporting to retail locations. Following a 24 hour quarantine period, they may begin transporting products to retail stores. Marijuana retailers may begin selling marijuana at their discretion following receipt of product and entering it in to the traceability system.Businesses receiving their licenses today represent the first of 334 licenses allotted by the WSLCB for retail sales who have successfully completed the licensing process. Locations receiving licenses were selected by taking into account population, geographic dispersion and the individual applicant’s readiness to be licensed.Today’s issuance of the first retail licenses represents the latest step following nearly 18 months of establishing a tightly controlled and comprehensive system of producing, processing and retailing recreational marijuana. Highlights include:Crafting the rules governing Washington’s recreational marijuana system;Establishing a traceability system for tracking marijuana products from production to retailEstablishing a system and certification requirements for laboratories and testing procedures for labs testing recreational marijuana;Building and training marijuana licensing, enforcement and financial teams for administering and enforcing the law;Conducting thorough criminal and financial investigations of all license types;Developing a process for a third-party to conduct a double-blind lottery for establishing an ordered list of retail license applicants; andActively working with industry members, public agencies and community organizations to further public and consumer safety education.The WSLCB was especially concerned with the impact to children. There are strict rules regarding packaging, labeling and advertising to ensure they not appeal to children. In June, the LCB announced emergency rules that include a label and product approval process.WSLCB licensing investigators will continue to issue producer, processor and retailer licenses as those applications are completed. To date the WSLCB has licensed over 687,000 square feet of plant canopy for marijuana production, roughly the equivalent of a dozen football fields.For more information including summaries of the rules frequently requested lists please visit the LCB website at www.liq.wa.gov.
