Thank you for your input. +10 Vote up Vote down WHS Grad · 356 weeks ago I thought I would share this too. “I feel like I have to share this. Not too long ago a young man who was from Clearwater lost his life because he drown and didn’t know how to swim. Before his young life ended this young man lost his mom to breast cancer. He wore a pink shirt every Friday in her memory. He never forgot the disease that took her life. Our high school football team is playing the high school football team of where this young man lost his life. I guess to some it seems pretty sad and easy to make jokes about someone who didn’t know how to swim and dies. So these individuals are sending messages about coming to our town this Friday and wearing floaties to make fun of this young man’s death. I say all this for a few reasons. Why is death funny? Especially for a young person to die. I don’t find that funny… So I am asking all those who live in Clearwater whether you go to the game or not. Lets take a stand and show this other community that death is real this young man’s death while tragic and sad stood for something. Wear pink…..shirt, pants, sweatshirt, whatever just in support and in memory of him. ” Report Reply 0 replies · active 356 weeks ago +6 Vote up Vote down guest · 356 weeks ago Thanks WHS Grad for the idea! We could wear pink too! To show that we aren’t all jerks, that we see the tragedy in a young life lost, that we do not see death as a joke. All week I’ve been worried about how we can go to Clearwater and not be seen as a town full of jerks. I thought maybe we just shouldn’t go, but that is so unfair to the 99% that are good kids, that don’t condone this twisted taunting. Why should they feel like we don’t support them? Maybe this is it ~ show Clearwater it is merely a small minority of people who find pleasure in others’ pain, and they are bullies, and they are raising bullies! WEAR PINK! Report Reply 0 replies · active 356 weeks ago +3 Vote up Vote down A parent · 356 weeks ago So sad that our young people have no consideration or respect for people. I agree, there is nothing funny about this! It’s tough to be supportive of our hometown when we have kids that have to do something stupid!! I think the game should be cancelled or forfeit due to disrespect. Maybe that would teach some that their actions are not acceptable. I’m ashamed to call myself a Wellington crusader supporter!!

Twitter,Instagram, Facebook to name a few have the ability to do a lot of damage very quickly. When you are a student athlete you are not just representing yourself but your school and community at all times. Not just while school is in session or a sporting event is taking place. At the college level it is stressed in no uncertain terms that you have to be aware and responsible for what you post as well as what others may post about you. It is stressed that you will be held accountable. I understand that there is probably not a specific policy to deal with this type of incident at the current time. Check around and see how others deal and address social media. Parents and students need to know this is a very serious and it’s not funny or a joke. It’s serious . How many of us as parents even know what are kids are tweeting or posting. Start with our own kids. Let’s educate the kids and parents.

The loser will likely be chasing rainbows for the rest of the season. Circle04006041240 Sept. 20AugustaWellington wins 19-10. by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Football districts begin this week for the Class 4A and 3A teams. Eight man teams continue to battle it out in their respective divisions… Augusta13.25015.16794226 Game night weather: There is rain in the forecast. But unlike two weeks ago, the rain is supposed to hit earlier around 2 p.m. There is still a 20 percent chance of rain at game time. Sept. 6GoddardWellington wins 34-28. The synopsis: It will be interesting to see how the football team reacts Friday considering the amount of peripheral activities surrounding the program this week. Let’s just say this author is having a hard time focusing on the actual game itself.But the reality is, a football game will be played Friday and it might be the medicine the community needs.This is the start of district play. Wellington has been out of the playoffs for the past two seasons, and would like to get back. In 2012, Wellington got off to a good start when it beat Clearwater 34-21.Clearwater and Wellington could be a barnburner. Both teams have beaten Augusta and Circle and lost to Andale badly. With Mulvane and Winfield in the wings, Wellington can’t afford to lose this game. It really is the most important game of the season. Oct. 11AndaleAndale wins 65-0. Central-Burden at Oxford (CJ Computer pick: Oxford) — The Wildcats hope to keep momentum from last week’s win over Sedan. Central-Burden has had no luck this season. Points Series history: Not so long ago, Wellington-Clearwater was an example of two programs so far apart on the spectrum that people didn’t want to watch the games because it would be such a blowout in the Crusaders favor. That changed in the late 2000s’ when Clearwater was giving Wellington all it could handle. Then Clearwater picked up wins in 2010 and 2011. This is now quite the battle as there is little separation between the two programs.

Renovated Mandela archive

first_imgThe Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory was reopened after a year of being closed for renovations. (Image: Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory) Chief exectuvie of the centre, Achmat Dangor, will be leaving his post at the end of June.(Image: Shamin Chibba) South African deputy president, Kgalema Motlanthe, said the centre measures how far the country has progressed.(Image: Shamin Chibba) MEDIA CONTACTS • Lee Davies  Communications Systems Co-ordinator  Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory  +27 11 547 5600 RELATED ARTICLES • Mandela exhibition goes to Paris • Robben Island revisited digitally • Mandela archive goes live • Mandela prison anniversary marked • Liliesleaf: keeping the memory aliveShamin ChibbaNelson Mandela does not belong to one institution; he is a global resource. These are the sentiments of Sello Hatang, the incoming chief executive of the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory.Hatang and five other speakers, including South African Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe, addressed an audience comprising stakeholders, international media and former anti-apartheid activists at the reopening of the facility on Monday, 27 May. It not only marked the reopening of the refurbished centre, but it was used to honour the outgoing chief executive of six years, Achmat Dangor, and commemorate the very day Mandela was sent to prison on Robben Island 50 years ago.Hatang said his tenure would be about building on Dangor’s work. More importantly, he would like to attract youth to the centre for educational purposes. “It is about how you can become responsive to new audiences that you were never able to reach, particularly young people.”South African youth felt alienated, he pointed out, and one way of dealing with this was to allow them to engage with Mandela’s legacy. “We need to help them identify how they can help build new legacies, their own legacies.”Social inequalities and unemployment were the causes of this sense of alienation; and this would only increase if youth unemployment continued to rise. However, Hatang insisted South Africa was not the only country experiencing this problem. “We have the same challenges as the rest of the continent and the world.”On the night, Curious Pictures donated to the National Archive a digitised film archive of the Constitutional Assembly’s deliberations on a new constitution for South Africa, which was recorded in 1996. The centre’s two major attractions include the former president’s office, which is left as is when he last used it in 2010, and the auditorium where he made his final official speech, “Don’t call me, I will call you”. The latter will be used for discussions on critical social issues such as HIV/Aids, freedom of information, and xenophobia. The centre will open to the public in September this year. Fulfilling a purposeAccording to Verne Harris, the centre’s director of research and archive, the facility would retain its purpose despite the change in leadership. It would continue to deliver to the world an integrated information resource on Mandela’s life, he explained. “This is not a legacy that belongs to one country or one institution. It needs to be opened up and interpreted in new ways by new generations and from people in other parts of the world.”The Mandela archive, Harris said, was fragmented and under different jurisdictions around the world. “Our objective is to document where those materials are and ultimately to ensure they are made available to the public.”He pointed out that the centre was trying to deconstruct the dominant narrative of Mandela’s life. Instead of focusing on the more commonly known facts such as his establishing a law firm with Oliver Tambo, his stay on Liliesleaf Farm and the Rivonia Trial, the centre wanted to present a complex story that had never been told. “We can tell you he studied 50 law courses at universities in his life. He failed 27. It just shows that he is a human being. He is flawed. He has weaknesses.”The institute was working on digitising Mandela’s speeches, the dictabelts, from the Rivonia Trial and all correspondence while he was in prison. Harris said every letter Mandela wrote or received was being copied by the state. “Such material desperately needs to be digitised as a lot of the documents are on old paper.”Motlanthe, who is a trustee of the Centre of Memory, said the archive’s material contained “important resolutions and dreams” that could measure the progress South Africa had made. “Distance in a temporal sense is managed by the future as projected by those who came before us. Thanks to this centre, scholars and researchers will keep on asking pertinent questions.”The deputy president reflected on his friendship with Mandela while incarcerated on Robben Island. “He had softened all the hardships of prison life.” Dangor’s life “shaped by a telephone call”Dangor turned to humour to say his farewells to the institution. He recalled the one thing that had led him to becoming its head: “A lot of my life was shaped by a telephone call.”His sister had called, he said, and had told him: “Madiba wants to see you.” Mandela had chosen Dangor to head the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund. But he declined the offer – it was only after meeting Mandela that he took the job. “He said to me: ‘You haven’t changed. You’re still as cheeky as ever. I hear you don’t want to work for me.’”Dangor had two pieces of advice for Hatang, which he had learned from Mandela. One was that while fundraising, “When someone makes a promise, you do not leave without the cheque”. The second was that for dialogue to take place, people who disagreed with each other had to be brought together. “When you get people together who agree with each other, that is not dialogue, that is a chat.”Apart from his work for the centre, Dangor has published five works of fiction and poetry, including Bitter Fruit, which was short-listed for the 2004 Man Booker Prize. His work has been translated into five languages.Dangor takes up the office of head of the Ford Foundation’s Southern African office in July.last_img read more
