Ozanam benefit recognizes its achievers

first_imgby Malik VincentPeople gathered on May 21 to recognize the contributions of both current and former Ozanam alumni, coaches, volunteers, and sponsors at its benefit dinner at Damon’s Grill and Sports Bar, Downtown.Vince Sims of WPXI-TV served as the evening’s Master of Ceremonies and conducted the silent auction. Some of the items sold included a ‘legends’ basketball signed by several greats, or what they refer to as “legendary alumni” that have participated in the program over the years. Another was a wood-burned art rendering by OZ’s executive director Curtis Cureton. There was also a raffle that included an autographed football signed by Robin Cole, Mike Meriwether, Mel Blount, and Craig Bingham—to name a few, as well as other sports-related items. OZANAM STAFF AND ALUMNI—Front row, from left: OZ Executive Assistant Darelle Porter, Alumna Dr. Mary Myers, Girls’ Program Director Karen Hall, and Executive Director Curtis Cureton. Back row, from left: Alumnus Chuck Crummie, Dwight “Ice Man” Clay, Jennifer Bruce-Scott, Chuck Franklin, Kirk Bruce, and acclaimed actor Lamman Rucker, who served as the event’s keynote speaker. “Until Ozanam gets the proper funding, it’s going to be a struggle,” program alumni Dwight Clay said. “Now, you can see that they’re on the right track to developing that type of leadership and following but they still need the funding.”Referred to as, ‘the Iceman’, Clay hit the game-winning shot to end UCLA’s NCAA Division I men’s record-longest 88 game winning streak back in January, 1974—a mark that still stands today.“As a young man, Ozanam prepared us intellectually, worldly, and skillfully in sports to take that beyond the Hill District boundaries,” Clay said. “It was just another vehicle presented to young men such as myself to utilize to continue my growth.”Dr. Mary Myers, who is now coordinator of Student Organizations at Cleveland State University, was one of the first female players in Ozanam to play with boys in the mid- ‘70s. Her Archerettes played together in the OZ summer league and then met later on in the regular-season at Fifth Avenue High School.From there, she took her talents to star at the University of Kansas.“We didn’t lose much, in fact, I don’t’ think we lost at all,” Myers said. “The time I spent with Ozanam earned me a scholarship. It provided me with an opportunity for exposure and an environment to cultivate. “Myers, who refers to the late Ozanam founder Karl Kohlman as ‘Daddy Kohlman’, said he was a “disciplinarian” who enjoyed girls basketball and who applied the idea that she called the “each one, teach one rule.”Cureton mentioned that the organization plans to continue Kohlman’s vision, financially, pursuing opportunities for funding by continuing to conduct community events and by obtaining more corporate sponsorship.“Back during the Kohlman era of Ozanam, many of its ventures were funded by his own organization. The Catholic Diocese (who was a key supporter, during that time) assisted with things such as the maintenance of the Community Center.”He feels one long-term solution to any financial difficulties is to build its alumni base and for it to campaign for more such gateways to gain such funding.Native son Lamman Rucker, an Ozanam alumnus, served as the event’s keynote speaker. In his address, he made several references to his pride in hailing from Pittsburgh and how he’s applied his experiences with the OZ program to his life.“Ozanam has been a pillar in the community, and in particular to the Hill District, for many years,” Rucker said. “It was a big part of my childhood. It’s as if your own family asked you to come back and asked you to tell what they mean to you. The fact that I’m here right now is a similar thing.”The famed actor moved to New York after earning his masters from Duquesne to fulfill his stage and screen aspirations. After performing in the theatre, he obtained work in television series, such as: “All of Us,” “House of Payne” and “Meet the Browns.” His major movie credits, to date, are Tyler Perry’s “Why Did I Get Married?” and “Why Did I Get Married Too?”“I can look around and see some of the results of that work we put in back in the OZ days,” Rucker said. “The other guys are here doing great things, whether it’s teaching, coaching, active in business, politics, (etc.). We’re all peers, so it’s no surprise that they’re thriving. I know them and that’s the way it’s always been. It’s good to see that they’re the same people that they were back then… (Their success) is no surprise.”(Malik Vincent can be reached at [email protected])last_img read more

Beckles urges WICB to implement Patterson Report reform

first_imgVice-Chancellor of the University of the West Indies, Professor Sir Hilary Beckles, has urged the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) to implement the most crucial reform aspect of the Patterson Report.Telling the WICB president Dave Cameron that reform was the “duty of his generation”, Sir Hilary pointed to Carlos Brathwaite’s heroics of four sixes off the first four balls of the final over in the men’s final which fired West Indies to victory over England and stressed that it was now left to the regional governing body to complete the process.”All that is now required is for the WICB, president and directors, to complete the over,” Sir Hilary said in a letter to media.”There are two balls left to face, one is to accept the governance reform that calls for the Council of Stakeholders as set out in the Patterson Report, and the other is to recognise that by accepting the governance interdependence of cricket and society is not to lose autonomy.”The players have done their job on the field. It is now for the president, whose heart resides in cricket as much as any one of us, to do his and lead his board boldly into the rest of the decade with public support and popular legitimacy.”The Patterson Report, commissioned by the WICB and authored by former Jamaica Prime Minister P.J. Patterson, was produced in 2007, but its main recommendations have been ignored by the WICB.Among these proposals are the implementation of a Council of Stakeholders, comprising 23 members and, according to the Report, “representative of a wide cross section of stakeholders and will determine policies and strategies and provide guidance for the development of West Indies cricket”.This council would appoint the president, vice-president and the executive directors.West Indies cricket is being destroyed by “internal conflict and acrimony.”Without this reform, West Indies runs the risk of being razed to the ground by internal conflict and acrimony,” he pointed out.”The golden monument we have all built as a tribute to our cultural tenacity and collective wisdom must come first. This is your task, Mr President. It’s a duty of your generation.”Noticeably, Sir Hilary made no reference to the most recent Caricom-commissioned Governance Report, which last year called for the “immediate dissolution” of the WICB.Speaking last November after the report was made public, Sir Hilary said he believed institutions like UWI and the WICB needed to be “preserved for posterity”, but also adapt to changing times.- CMClast_img read more

Crying Piccolo Player Sums Up Villanova’s Loss To NC State

Well done.Villanova wildcat till I die, through the smiles and the tears— Roxanne Chalifoux (@roxiechalifoxie) March 22, 2015Earlier: Saturday night, Villanova became the first 1-seed to go down in this year’s NCAA Tournament, falling to 8-seed NC State in a thriller, 71-68. The Wildcats had trouble on the offensive end all night, shooting just 31% overall, despite Darrun Hilliard II catching absolute fire toward the end of the contest. After it was over, Nova fans were understandably upset. One was taking it a bit harder than most, however.As the game ended, TBS’ cameras panned to a girl in Villanova’s band playing the flute piccolo. She couldn’t control the tears rolling down her cheeks. Video of the incident has gone viral.It’s a tough way for Villanova to lose, but the Wildcats still had an incredible year. Hopefully the young fan can take some solace in that.More: The 64 Most-Annoying Fan Baseslast_img read more
