Teen hockey player returns to the ice after suffering traumatic brain injury in accident: ‘I feel great’

first_imgNovember 19, 2018 /Sports News – National Teen hockey player returns to the ice after suffering traumatic brain injury in accident: ‘I feel great’ Beau Lund Written bycenter_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailABC News(BOSTON) — Since he was a young boy, Gage Senter has loved hockey.Three years ago, Senter was a high school freshman in Merrimac, Massachusetts, when he made the varsity starting lineup as a center.“It was the most important thing for me. I just worried about hockey and I just worried about the game,” said Senter, now 18. “I didn’t worry about anything else.”He had dreams of playing hockey professionally but that summer, when he was 15, he was struck by a car at a crosswalk.He spent a month in a coma and was on life support for six weeks with a traumatic brain injury and remained in the hospital for nine months.When Senter woke up, he said, he thought his life was over, but it wasn’t.“My life was very different. … I just had to relearn how to walk. Relearn how to talk. Relearn how to eat. Relearn how to live life again. Relearn to learn of who I was again. I did it and I pulled through. … I just never gave up,” he said.Senter worked hard in rehabilitation for 22 months, determined to recover and to return to the ice.Stacey Sirotta, Senter’s physical therapist, said it had been “exciting” to see Senter’s progress.In March, seven months ago, he took his first shaky steps back on the ice. For Senter and his family, it was a victory. And, it didn’t take him long to get back to his old form.Sirotta said he was doing a great job mastering different aspects of skating.“It takes a lot of hard work. It takes a lot of determination. … He continues to get better and better,” she said.“I just love the feeling on my face,” Senter told ABC News. “I just love that cool breeze. I love skating fast. I love taking tight turns.”Senter also became a role model at the May Center School for Brain Injury in Brockton, Massachusetts, for other young people with serious brain injuries.“I help them just like I was helped,” Senter said. “I want my fellow students to get back to how they were before they got the brain injury.”As for skating, he said, getting back on the ice and playing hockey helped him feel like his old self, “but with the little lags.”“I feel great. I feel greater than ever to be back in this world,” he said. “I feel like everything is not how I would like it to be but I’m working and I’m making progress every single day and that’s what I have to say for everyone with an injury. … You can’t give up. Just keep trying.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Commentary: Impeachment, Frying Pan Or Fire

first_imgBy John INDIANAPOLIS – Soon enough, we’ll know how it ends.One of the curious things about the unfolding story involving the likely impeachment of President Donald Trump is just how many people on both sides know, know, know with absolute certainty how it will unfold.Trump’s diehard Republican defenders say there’s nothing there, that the impeachment proceedings are nothing more than presidential persecution. Many ardent Trump haters in the Democratic Party say this president has been dirty from day one and he’s about to get what he deserves.Well, soon enough, we’ll know.Part of the confusion stems from a lack of understanding about the impeachment process. In the first place, it is a political process, not a criminal trial.That makes the arguments advanced by the president and his devotees that his “due process” rights have been violated nonsense. If absent extraordinary circumstances, a president easily could face criminal charges, Donald Trump likely would have been indicted for obstruction of justice because of the way he conducted himself during Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election.But the fact that impeachment is not a criminal trial means the elected officials working through the process don’t have several centuries of precedent to guide them.In the two other times in American history, presidents have been impeached in the House of Representatives and tried in the Senate, members of Congress and the chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court have asked the same questions.What are we supposed to do?What are the rules?The Constitution is vague regarding those questions. Our founding document establishes with clarity that the House – and the House alone – has the authority to determine whether and how the impeachment process should proceed. It also makes clear that should the House pass by majority vote articles of impeachment, a trial in the Senate must follow and that two-thirds of the Senate must approve those articles before a president can be removed.But the Constitution is nowhere near as clear – beyond the reference to “high crimes and misdemeanors” – about what constitutes grounds for impeachment, much less removal from office.That vagueness probably was deliberate.The drafters of the Constitution were trying to walk a line.They didn’t want to make impeachment too easy or too convenient. They didn’t want presidents thrown out of the office and the results of national elections disregarded on a whim.But they also did not want presidents to think they were kings. They didn’t want America’s chief executives to think they could operate without restraint, that there was no way to curtail rampant abuses of power.In some ways, Donald Trump is the perfect test for the impeachment process.He may be the only person left in America who thinks the phone call in which Trump tried to pressure Ukraine’s president into digging up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden’s family was “perfect” and did not cross a line or violate a law.But the sheer shabbiness of the shakedown attempt creates its own line of defense.It’s a viable defense that, for all the wrong reasons and over the president’s objections, Republicans have landed upon and begun to advance.It goes like this: Yes, what the president did was wrong and even may have broken the law, but is it big enough to merit doing something that we Americans never before have done in our history – removing a president from office?That’s a momentous question.Either way, we go, a dangerous precedent will be set.If the president is removed, then we can expect impeachment to become a regular part of our lives. One look at the U.S. Senate, where the “nuclear” option now has become the normal one regarding Supreme Court nominations and the rules are rewritten on a regular basis, shows how quickly institutional safeguards can be eroded and then erased.But if Donald Trump isn’t held accountable in some fashion, he and all future presidents will know they can flout the law with impunity so long as their party controls at least a third of the Senate.Damned if we do, damned if we don’t.That’s where this story ends.How we get there is the question.Soon enough, we’ll know.FOOTNOTE:  John Krull is the director of Franklin College’s Pulliam School of Journalism and publisher of, a news website powered by Franklin College journalism students.The City-County Observer has posted this article without opinion, bias or editing.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Ocean City Lures Shoppers Downtown

first_imgBy Tim KellyIt was a typical warm summer beach day when the banner plane flew high above the waves.“Brush off the Sand and Shop Ocean City,” the advertising banner urged.Ocean City’s traditional tourism focus has always has been: beach, bay and Boardwalk. In recent years, local officials have made a more concerted effort to boost its downtown shopping district as an attraction to rival the others.Shopping is lauded as one of the top three reasons people visit Ocean City, tourism boosters noted, and with good reason.Asbury Avenue between 6th and 14th Streets comprises the main downtown shopping and dining corridor, with dozens of unique stores, shops, cafes and other attractions.In all, there are more than 100 clean, safe and centrally-located shops and cafes for visitors and residents to enjoy downtown. For many visitors who arrive from neighborhoods served by strip malls, big-box stores and chains, O.C.’s downtown is a happening.On Monday, we caught up with expecting mom Elizabeth Eshelman and husband Christian, of Lancaster PA, who will welcome a boy into the family in December.“We’re not looking (specifically) for baby things, but we might see something,” Elizabeth said. “There is a nice atmosphere here for shopping. It’s very relaxed.”“We like it that there aren’t a lot of chain (stores),”Christian said. “The people working in the stores are very nice. It’s not just the same five chains located around town like in some places.  It’s a much different experience,” he said.The Eshelmans are part of a growing trend, said Michele Gillian, Executive Director of the Ocean City Regional Chamber of Commerce.“There’s a big push to shop local,”Gillian said. “More people are understanding that if you shop local, you’re helping to keep local people working.”Expectant parents Elizabeth and Christian Eshelman said the shopping atmosphere is relaxed on Asbury Ave.It’s not just recognition of the downtown shops’ solid contribution to the local economy. Ocean City is proactive, turning shopping into an adventure year-round.  There are special activities and deals, themed events like a “Girls Weekend” for shopping, Black Friday promotions in November and much more.A stroll along Asbury can mean entertainment from face-painting to Mummers string band appearances. And with its wide variety of cafes and restaurants, shoppers can easily make a morning or afternoon of their shopping excursion.One of the nation’s first “vacation apps” for smartphone users enables people to obtain e-coupons, make cashless purchases and learn the complete schedule of downtown happenings. For more information, and a chance to win a free 7-day vacation, visit to download the app.  There’s also an aggressive TV advertising program and billboards on the Jersey-bound side of Philly’s Walt Whitman Bridge.Merchants appreciate the marketing efforts, said OC resident Candice Kolins, co-owner of Cruise Control Gear, a high performance sportswear company which recently invested in a retail store at 810 Asbury Ave. in the Stainton’s complex.A graphic from the Ocean City vacation app touts shopping on Asbury. (Photo courtesy )“We love Ocean City and we wanted to make our products available in our hometown,” she noted. “We’re excited to be downtown because (the city and Chamber) do a great job of getting out the crowds. It’s not just seasonal,” she said of the shopping scene on Asbury. “The City markets its shopping opportunities all year.  Also, the boutiques and shops are so varied you can find most anything you’re looking for. Downtown seems like it’s always bustling.”As for the banner plane?“(The banner) gives us the opportunity to let everyone know on our eight mile island about our downtown,” Gillian said. “Some people come in over 34th Street and they turn left, they never turn right (in the direction of downtown). We want everyone to enjoy the experience of shopping in an old-fashioned small town.”Hoy’s 5&10 is an iconic throwback store in OC’s throwback shopping district.Hoy’s 5&10 is a throwback to when thousands of towns across America had “five and dimes,” places where you could pick up a wide range of essentials at a reasonable cost.Rick Stogdale of Phoenixville PA, was perusing the amazing assortment of beach gear with daughters Catherine and Evelyn. He had already picked out for purchase a beach umbrella holder and a deck of cards.The girls were looking at stickers to decorate their bedrooms and Evelyn had found a bone-shaped sign featuring the name of their family dog, Parker.“We slept in today and then decided to come down here and pick up a few things,” Rick explained. We were pretty excited to find something with Parker’s name on it.”This didn’t come as a shock to Gillian.“Our downtown is a true gem of Ocean City,” she said of the vibrant community of locally owned businesses. Rick Stogdale and daughters Catherine (center) and Evelyn found vacation supplies at Hoy’s 5&10last_img read more

With an ever-expanding and evolving sound, the group has been lauded by fellow Portland-er Lyle Divinsky of The Motet as “one of the upcoming un-fuck-withables.” Their second studio album, HEATWEAVER, was released to critical acclaim late last year, and the ensuing tour dates and national exposure have since netted them a brand new deal with top beat-music tastemakers Alpha Pup Records in Los Angeles.Over the years, Jaw Gems has slowly adopted an intricate arsenal of instruments, including drums, bass, and dueling vintage synthesizers, a Roland sp404 and a Juno 106 analog synth, as well as more modern beat-repeating and sample-warping technologies. The versatility of the band’s tools, as well as the varying approaches of their members leads to a highly complex electro-hip-hop flavor on HEATWEAVER.Jaw Gems Offer Smoking Beats On New Album, “HEATWEAVER” [Review]Now, along with their new record deal, Jaw Gems is primed to release HEATWEAVER Remixes, a reimagined take on the group’s 2016 album, via Alpha Pup on Friday, October 13th.

HEATWEAVER Remixes will bring Jaw Gems fans both new and old a fresh crop of music, reimagining each of the album’s songs launching an expansive new era for the group. Each of the songs was remixed by a notable collaborator, from Break Science to The Russ Liquid Test to Milo to Brady Watt to T3, one of the founding members of pioneering hip-hop crew Slum Village.Old friends, new friends, friends from the road – HEATWEAVER Remixes is packed with Jaw Gems’ favorite beatmakers. As drummer DJ Moore explains, “Some of the tracks were remixed by people we’ve known since we were kids and other tracks were done by people we’ve connected with over the past couple years of touring.”Ahead of HEATWEAVER Remixes‘ official release this Friday, Jaw Gems and Live For Live Music are excited to premiere an exclusive early stream of the new album.
