timberland earthkeepers chelsea boots A night of nostalgia and emotion at latest Carlisle United

There was a moment, towards the end of a night of great humour and nostalgia, that the audience fell silent, and still. Mick Wadsworth was speaking from the heart and, for a second, it felt like his emotions might catch up with him.

Carlisle United’s director of coaching from 1993 to 1996 the Division Three title, Wembley and all was asked to name the things he most values from his long career. Medals aside, he first referred to personal inscriptions made by Sir Bobby Robson in a number of books that sit on his shelves.

Then he remembered some other writing. “I got a load of letters from Carlisle fans when I left, and I kept them in a file,” Wadsworth said. “They are amazing. Amazing. The connection in what those people saw how much it meant to them was far greater than what I perceived it to be.

“They are beautiful letters, poems, drawings, bits of art. I’ve still got them.”

Those gathered in Carlisle’s Old Fire Station for the second United “legends night” were rapt by this intimate disclosure from one of the club’s most celebrated managers. Around this time, a member of the audience spoke to thank Wadsworth for giving him, a Blues supporter, the chance to see his team at Wembley for the first time.

Applause broke out, and Wadsworth was touched. “Other than for family, I’d move here tomorrow,” the Yorkshireman said. “I feel at home in Carlisle.”

These were the most poignant moments in an evening otherwise studded with insight and dressing room comedy. Wadsworth was the final turn, treating the crowd to some gems from that transforming time at Brunton Park in the mid 1990s.

His first training session, for instance: interrupted by the sight of Michael Knighton “in full kit, ball under arm, like Brian Glover in Kes, jogging onto the pitch.” Wadsworth instructed groundsman Ted Swainson to ask Knighton to go back whence he came, using a few words too salty for a family publication.

Knighton also left behind by the team coach at Huddersfield after an Auto Windscreens game, on Wadsworth’s word was a ghost at this feast. The most controversial character in the Blues’ recent history also formed the context of Fred Story’s account of his own Carlisle ownership.

Story, who oversaw two promotions and very nearly a third, began by paying tribute to his predecessor, John Courtenay, the “crazy, fantastic Irishman” who had wrested the club from Knighton in 2002 and so brought it back to its supporters.

Story, who bought the club two years later, applied his business brain to the task of making United more professional; clearing debts, responding to the 2005 floods and building on the turnaround Paul Simpson had started towards the end of the Courtenay era.

His legacy was reflected in the warm reception he received as the night’s first guest. The building tycoon balanced his own memories with praise for certain individuals and bodies of people (Simpson could be a manager in “any industry”, Andrew Jenkins was a “legend”, while United’s staff were described as routinely hard working), while the former owner referred more than once to the special relationship that grew between club and fans during his tenure.

The night at Stoke, when Conference promotion was achieved and a classic “booze up” followed in Carlisle, was his most memorable time.

Inevitably, the bumps in the road had to be negotiated. Story was ready for the question about Neil McDonald’s sacking early in the 2007/8 season and seemed to relish the chance to dismiss “100 per cent” some of the lurid speculation that followed it.

“I know what the rumours are,” Story said. “But if there had been a personal issue, I would have addressed it in a personal manner. Business comes first, and I sacked Neil for issues as a manager.”

Story, without being specific on the “issues”, recalled how “conversations” with McDonald in the close season went unheeded. This saw him pull the trigger after a 1 1 draw at Walsall on the new campaign’s opening day.

“It was nothing personal. Was it the right time? No. That was a mistake. It made it very controversial and high profile. But the way I run a business is, if I think something’s wrong, I address it. I think Carlisle United benefited from that style.”

Story’s other admission was that he had allowed himself to be drawn into a “stupid war” with the United Trust, which led to two courtroom sagas. “Who won? The solicitors,” he said. “I think of the time, money and energy fighting that crazy, wasteful battle. It was a really sorry episode in the club’s history and I take some responsibility for that, because I should have risen above it.”

Kevin Henderson, a striker who also crossed the Courtenay and Story years, was excellent value on dressing room affairs. A reliable pro, he was one of the first men signed by Simpson to help rout the drinking culture which, Henderson said, was “ruining the club”.

The post Roddy Collins dressing room was, he felt, “a disgracewith a contingent of players that wouldn’t have got in Sunday League sides”. Henderson, out of favour at Hartlepool, had family ties of his own in Carlisle and enjoyed the opportunity to bring some overdue professionalism to an underachieving club.

A natural raconteur, he painted familiar pictures of icons like Kevin Gray and Dennis Booth. Paul Arnison was another warmly recalled, not just as a fine pro but “the tightest man in soccer he would look under the bed to see if he’d lost any sleep.”

Henderson also remembered coming on as a substitute against Barnet with a secret brief to “do” the Bees defender Ian Hendon, who had been tormenting United. The resulting 50 50 clash saw Hendon limp off but Henderson carried off. “But that’s what we were. You would fight for each other, put yourself on the line.”

Tom Cowan was another committed customer from a similar period. He found the team spirit at Carlisle the equal of anywhere he had played, while the gallery enjoyed his anecdote about being knocked out cold against Halifax and trying to return to the pitch 10 minutes later, not realising he had already been subbed.

He also drew cheers when referring to a familiar foe: Stevenage manager Graham Westley, who had shouted vehemently in Cowan’s face after a foul in the 2005 play off final. “As soon as the final whistle went, the first person I saw was Westley,” the former left back said. “‘Get it up you, you ‘.”

Paul Thirlwell, from a more recent vintage, was next, describing how the “ginger prince” Chris Lumsdon made his decision to join Carlisle from Derby easier. United’s former skipper was amusing as he recounted the day against Millwall when he and Graham Kavanagh scored wonder goals to keep the Blues in League One.

The pile on, after Thirlwell’s goal, endangered his health, not least when Kavanagh took a running jump onto the mound. “Kav was about 16 clem at the time, as well.”

Thirlwell dwelt more seriously on good and challenging times. He described Peter Murphy as the man he’d most like by his side in a crisis, and Ian Harte as one of the best he played with. “He was so miserable, though either the pasta was too hard or too soft.”

He defended former manager Greg Abbott’s “body of work” in a climate of criticism, and felt successor Kavanagh, sacked in 2014, was a “good guy” who did not fail for a lack of commitment. Thirlwell, also joint caretaker manager with Tony Caig before Keith Curle arrived, confirmed they had been interested in the permanent post, “but it was never really on the cards”.

His conclusion, that Carlisle was a “fantastic place to play football” was shared by Derek Walsh, who threw light onto United’s turbulent years at the turn of the 1990s.

Chicago, Illinois (CNN) For Jewel Mitchell, it was the worst Christmas of her life, the pain so raw she secluded herself in her bedroom to shield her two young daughters.It was 1996, and the man she was supposed to marry the man her girls idolized had already been gone two years. But this Christmas, he was supposed to come home and pick up where they had left off:Walking Latoni and Latoya to school. Playing Chutes and Ladders with them on Friday nights. Taking their mother on dates to the lakefront to watch the waves of Lake Michigan dance.But Jewel’s fianc wasn’t returning to their home on Chicago’s South Side. Five days earlier, Dean Cage, had been sentenced to 40 years in prison for an aggravated sexual assault he said he didn’t commit. Jewel was his alibi. At the time of the attack, she said, he was asleep next to her.The day they’d planned to marry had come and gone with Dean in the Cook County Jail, unable to afford bond set at half a million dollars. When his trial date finally arrived just two months before this miserable Christmas Jewel listened to a young girl describe the man who brutally attacked her as she walked to her bus stop on a dark November morning. She was just 15.Those were difficult days for Jewel, but at least then she could still cling to the hope that the world would soon learn what she knew without a doubt: This was a case of mistaken identity.On the day of the verdict, family and co workers packed the courtroom to support a man who’d never been arrested before in his life. Jewel wore her best navy pantsuit and told her older brother: Today, my fianc is coming home.But the truth did not prevail. Two years after being arrested, Dean was declared guilty, and Jewel’s optimism was drained away,

her hope annihilated.She would put on a happy face to celebrate the holiday with her daughters. But the Christmas gifts she’d bought Dean, a boom box and a pair of black Timberland boots, lay on the bedroom floor, unopened.Behind the Scenes blog: Read the making of the story from reporter Stephanie Chen.Separated by bars, freedom lostIt is the most unlikely love story.When the world labeled her fianc guilty of a monstrous crime, Jewel refused to believe it. When the judge sentenced him to four decades in the Illinois penitentiary system, she stood by him.”I love him,” she would say. “It’s as simple as that. He was good to me and my girls. He’s a good man.”Ask a defense attorney how many clients profess innocence. Ask a prison warden how many inmates claim they are not guilty. The answer is the same: Denial is epidemic behind bars.”We get about 200 to 300 new letters a month” from prisoners who say they’ve been wrongly convicted, says one attorney at the Innocence Project, a national nonprofit that works to exonerate the innocent. Since its inception in 1992, the group has used DNA testing to overturn convictions of 244 inmates.By the time those prisoners won their freedom they had served an average of 12 years many had lost the bonds that would help them make a new life on the outside. One study shows marriages are three times more likely to fail when a man is incarcerated.There is no movie night or anniversary dinner when a boyfriend or husband is locked up. Even for women like Jewel, single minded about their loved one’s innocence, time tests the relationship. Women face emotional abandonment and the challenges of a long distance relationship. Sometimes financial responsibilities, the burden of single parenting and prejudice from outsiders drive them away.If Jewel stuck by Dean, she’d be the rare exception.Who would blame her if she simply moved on?A smile that lit up the roomThey met on an icy evening in Chicago in the winter of 1992.

timberland stockists uk A resident of Lismore takes on the trek to the Mount Everest Base Camp

As little as she likes to boast, Lynda Marie Grosvold has earned some serious bragging rights, for she has just returned from the roof of the world.

The adventurous Lismore local most recent trip saw her ascend over 17,000 feet to the Everest Base Camp (EBC) in Nepal, in a trip that took her through the extreme craggy heights of the Himalayas.

Aside from backpacking the West Coast Trail, Grosvold trip to the Himalayas has been her most exciting excursion to date, and biggest adventure thus far. inspired by stories of a previous hike done by two of her friends from PEI, who made the trek to the base camp before, and planned to do it again, wanted to accompany them on their next expedition so accompany them, she did.

did it three years ago, the basic up and down, to Everest Base Camp, and they said they do it again, because of the adventure and the people there, said Grosvold. said if they were doing it again, I love to go myself. They decided to go, and I signed up. she didn travel to the absolute summit of Mount Everest, Grosvold travelled a significant distance into the mountains, eventually reaching EBC after 9 days of steady hiking, and almost three spent on the return hike the descent being far quicker and easier than the ascent.

was all about putting one foot in front of the other, she said, adding that the true challenge was not only the steepness of the terrain itself, but the lack of oxygen that high up.

was a far greater challenge than sea level breathing, so it takes longer to get to base camp, Grosvold said.

The trip was slow going at times, as she and her hiking companions took the many hills and slopes they had to travel up slowly, and steadily.

just have to take little steps and breathers every once in a while; then a few more steps, said Grosvold.

Despite the challenging nature of the hike, Grosvold was undaunted by the prospect of hiking the Himalayas, since an outdoor person. I love adventure, and wasn nervous. My parents were more nervous than I was. big payoff of the adventure for Grosvold was the variety of scenery, with the hike starting out in areas with heavy trees and vegetation, and as you get higher, you get above the treeline,
timberland boot laces A resident of Lismore takes on the trek to the Mount Everest Base Camp
and it gets a little more barren, and there a lot less colour. There a lot of white, grey and brown. There dirt, snow and glacial material are all over the place. Her ascent to the EBC most definitely was.

According to Grosvold, was an amazing trek that challenge me both physically and mentally especially when my hiking teammates were helicoptered out due to one of them falling ill, due to a serious gastrointestinal illness. (They have, since then, fully recovered from that illness.) after resting, Grosvold friend condition did not improve, and the risk of dehydration reared its ugly head. Both Grosvold friend and her husband were airlifted out, leaving Grosvold to continue on her own, with a guide and porter. She forged onward with a guide and porter, eventually reaching EBC an amazing experience she wishes she could have shared with her fellow hikers.

Even Grosvold, herself, ended up dealing with a bit of illness, contracting the cough, a condition that entails respiratory irritation brought on by the lack of oxygen and cold conditions.

had a bit of a cold to begin with, Grosvold said, altitude doesn make things get better when you have a cold. her cough and friend illness caused some problems, Grosvold said the weather was cooperative with only one day of rain the last day. The final two days of hiking to base camp were much clear sailing, with beautiful scenery all around. was beautiful sunshine, and one day was windy. It was very cold in the morning, but as the sun comes up, you closer to the sun because of the higher elevation, so it warms up to about eight to 10 degrees, said Grosvold. can hike for a lot of the day in a long sleeved shirt. I didn need my jacket at any time other than first thing in the morning. addition to the weather, Grosvold was grateful for the trustworthy people of Nepal who assisted with the journey, and served as guides and porters.

people are amazing. They are so trustworthy, and there no fear at all being there. said perhaps her climb may inspire others to get outside, be active and try something new. I know this adventure has opened my eyes to a whole new beauty of our planet, and the mountains but most importantly it has made me more thankful for what I have, and what we have as Canadians, and take for granted. asked what her next step is, Grosvold said she love to return to Nepal, since would be awesome to do that trek again, and that places like New Zealand or Peru aren out of the question.

Two sisters who thought a dog was making noises near their neighbour bushes discovered something shocking: a filthy eight month old baby girl who survived three nights outside in a white plastic bag.

legs were just dangling in the bag. Her head was in the bag. Her whole head was covered all the way down, Kayla Seals told Elmira television station WENY.

Hoyt, who lives 20 miles from Elmira in Sayre, Pennsylvania, came here to visit a friend Saturday morning and left the infant in the bag under some bushes around noon, said Chemung County District Attorney Weeden Wetmore.

Police say interviews with neighbourhood residents identified Hoyt as the baby mother. Her public defender wasn available for comment. Weeden said Hoyt had no prior criminal history.

Kayla and Karen Seals found the baby early Tuesday afternoon. They called 911 and cleaned up the child. She was wearing clothing and a soiled diaper and had a rash over parts of her body, but showed no signs of other physical abuse, Wetmore said. High temperatures over those days reached into the 70s with a low of 48 degrees on Saturday night, according to the National Weather Service.

The baby, whose name was not released, was taken to a hospital for examination and transferred to Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, where she was in stable condition and may be released to social services officials as early as Wednesday.

Elmira police Sgt. William Solt called the two women sister came out off the porch and went to the side to the backyard of my neighbour house with a stick, thinking it was a dog, Karen Seals told the television station.

New York has a law that allows a parent to leave a newborn in a safe place, such as a hospital or fire station, without fear of being prosecuted, but it wouldn have applied to the 8 month old. The law was enacted in 2000 and amended 10 years later to increase the length of time when a newborn could be abandoned from five days after birth to 30 days.

Nine people were killed, including State Sen. and the Rev. Clementa Pinckney. Several of the victims were also ministers at the church, including Rev. Sharonda Singleton, retired pastor Dr. Daniel Simmons, and Rev. DePayne Middleton Doctor. The other victims were Ethel Lance, Cynthia Graham Hurd, Susie Jackson, Myra Thompson, and Tywanza Sanders.

Word of the shooting spread first on police scanners.

“A white male, approximately 21 years of age, slender, small build wearing a gray sweat shirt, possible hoodie,

blue jeans, Timberland boots, clean shaven,” Francis said.

That description quickly spread to the FBI and the state Highway Patrol as the search for the suspected shooter intensified. But police would later say he was not the suspect.

Elected officials across the state and church as well as community leaders started sending messages of sympathy and shock across Social media.

“We are just sick to our stomachs that this could happen in a church,” one bystander said.

Approximately 15 minutes later, a tense situation became even more stressful for those in the immediate area as police warn a bomb threat had been called in.

That threat, when turned out to be a hoax, did not stop people from coming to the scene, however. Over the next hour people were joining hands and praying for the victims and their families.

“We were able to determine there are eight deceased individuals at the church,” Mullen said. “Two have been taken to the hospital and one has died.”

“This is the most unspeakable and heart wrenching tragedy,” Riley said.

Mullin confirmed there were some survivors and turned his attention to the suspected gunman

“We have investigators out tracking leads and we will continue to do that until we find this individual who has carried out this crime and bring him to justice,” Mullen said. Mullen would not confirm at that point whether the church’s pastor, State Sen. and the Rev. Clementa Pinckney,

The first area of importance in the Asos email was the subject line before the email was opened. It stated up to 60% off party wear this title is catchy as it is coming up to the season where there will be a lot of Christmas parties and events, so customers may be looking or planning outfits for this busy period. Even if this isn the case they may be inclined to have a look anyway as 60% off is such a large discount. In seeing this email myself, I would have been tempted to see what was available even if I wasn committed to buying anything. to 60% off will not necessarily mean every item offered in that sale but it is the most attractive offer they have to portray.

Once the email was opened, the first prominent feature was the countdown clock showing how long the sale lasted. Instantly a time scale is put on the reader as they would feel pressure not to miss out on a possible bargain, or kick themselves later for having to pay full price for something they knew they would need at some point. It is quite a simple email on first look with only the clock, a small description explaining why this sale would help any possible party season challenges, a tick tock shop, another 60% off title and a now hyperlink. This appears to do everything the email set out to do which was click on to shop at Asos for the sale,
timberland boots pink A review of Asos
but there is no personalized touch for the customer, which I have experienced in other emails with buys or my name at the top.

After first look the email continues further to another 2 pages. The article by Chadwick states that some companies like the fashion industry do produce longer mailings, for example, this email has taken a catalog approach. Timberland boots were advertised at the bottom of the page. This agrees with management comments stated in the Chadwick article that the longer an email appears the weaker the subject matter gets.

The other aspect that was included as you scrolled down the email was pictures and animation which made the email seem brighter and more interesting. As a result of this I wanted to keep scrolling through whereas the top page felt more clinical and to the point. twinkling stars for a Christmas advert, as they questioned whether they resulted in any more through I felt that it did add something to how visibly attractive or interesting the email was but wouldn have necessarily visited the website as a result.

region moms, dads, children and people just trying to survive.

A couple of guys from Brooklyn who are hoping a small token of love will make some of their lives just a little more comfortable.

“Hey, how you doing, could you use a blanket?,” they ask a 64 year old homeless man who goes by the name “Chuck Norris.” “We got this blanket for you,” Nick Fiorito told him, handing him a warm, fuzzy, purple blanket. “We came all the way from Brooklyn to deliver it to you.”

RELATED: Woman turns trash into art to help the homeless

“It makes me feel good to know there are people out there that care about the homeless,” Norris said to Nick and his brother Mike.

The two have given out nearly one thousand blankets to homeless people in New York.

“I will take that. I love that. I love blankets. It’s a soft one. I will cuddle up,” said Melvina Jenkins, 40, grabbing one of the blankets and rubbing it against her face with a giggle.

With every blanket, they’ve included a handwritten note. “We don’t know what you’re going through, but we want you to know you matter to us,” said a homeless man named Jarvis, reading from one of the messages.

“There’s a little note on there letting you know there are people that care about you and you’re not alone,” Nick Fiorito tells Anton Mitchell, who said he’d been living on the street since 2010. “Thank you big guy,” Mitchell tells him.

“Only thing I’m going to say is everybody needs a little love,” said Jarvis.

They call themselves the happyFreaks. They’re social engineers, Silicon Valley entrepeneurs, who decided that, like the old Greek Stoic philosophers, doing good would give their lives more meaning.

Each blanket costs $15, and they’ve raised $15,000 so far.

A blanket and a note is just a small thing. “I would like to have a home,” said Anton Mitchell. But he took the blanket for now.

The brother’s social media videos have helped them fund “Blankets of Hope.” They are encouraging people to launch their own giveaways, and they ask them to include a note that says, “We believe in you.”

PGA Tour caddie Paul Tesori has detailed information in his Augusta National yardage books that he accumulated in 10 years of caddying in the Masters Tournament, but he isn’t worried about revealing some of the secrets to other caddies and their players.

“That’s nothing for me to hide,” Tesori said.

“Before they let us walk the golf course, I might have been a little more fretting about some of the information because it took me so many years (to compile it).

“But now, they let the caddies go out (and walk the course) without the players, so most of the caddies have good information.”

Chapter 2: Caddies turn the page

These days, there’s a lot more than numbers in the yardage books used by veteran caddies in the Masters.

Caddie Paul Tesori has added eight pieces of information only three of which involve yardages to his copy of the book provided by Augusta National.

He charts the wind direction that day, whether it is an uphill or downhill shot, the yardage to the front of the green, the yardage to the pin, what club was hit, how the club was hit, the distance the shot flew in the air and where the shot finished.

That’s a far cry from the pre 1970s,
amazon timberland boots A page from a pro
before yardage books. Back then, Augusta National caddies memorized yardages from landmarks such as trees.

“When I caddied, I knew what the yardage from that tree on the right side of the trap on No. 1 was to where the pins would be,” said 71 year old Augustan Jerry Beard, who caddied in 26 Masters (1956 65 and 1967 82) and helped Fuzzy Zoeller win the 1979 Masters as a Masters rookie.

The advent of yardage books did away with “landmark yardage.”

“Why would you want to use a landmark that is way over there when you can use a sprinkler head that is right here?” asked Mike Cowan, who will be caddying in his 30th consecutive Masters this year.

Jim Mackay has caddied for three time champion Phil Mickelson in all 20 of his Masters appearances. He said he has cataloged every one of Mickelson’s shots in the Masters, but because of the advances in the golf ball and equipment, “95 percent of those numbers have become unusable.”

Mackay has kept every yardage book from the Mickelson years in the Masters, with those from the three victories stored “in a special place in my closet,” he said.

“What I have that I really like for me, as a caddie, is the pin sheets,” he said. “You can go to them and see he had 212 (yards to the pin on his second shot) on (the par 5) No. 15. It helps you remember the shots from his wins there.”
