Six-year vet Zachary Miller headed to Akron - Culpeper Star Exponent

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
Route 522 and turned to pit crew member Daniel Hunley with a simple message. “Look at the board, I’m going to Akron,” said the youngest of three Millers that became Soap Box Derby champions Saturday. Miller’s foresight proved true, as he held off Haven Kramb in the Stock Division finals and earned his second trip to the world championships in Akron, Ohio, with a time differential of .138 seconds. “The track was fast and I was kind of nervous, but I’m the Soap Box derby champion and it feels so good,” said Miller, 13. The seventh-grader at Floyd T. Bin...

Commentary: The view from Akron on LeBron James title - Sacramento Bee

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
It took seven questions for LeBron James' celebratory news conference to get around to us. He spoke about his journey, about being humbled by losing in the NBA Finals last year. The Akron native spoke about how much it hurt him to be labeled as "selfish" for his decision to leave Cleveland, and he insisted that he didn't take any shortcuts to this championship. Then the seventh question sent James' way in the early hours of Friday morning inside AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami was about us. "This question isn't intended to bait you or intended as some negative question," the ...

Mon, Jun 25, 2012

Mike Connell: End of the Underground Railroad - Port Huron Times Herald

Sun, Apr 22, 2012
Brown moved with his family to Hudson, Ohio. Brown’s first wife, Dianthe Lusk, also was from Hudson, as was Thompson’s wife, Alice. Hudson, located between Cleveland and Akron, also is where Thompson attended college, graduating with Western Reserve’s first class in 1830. William Lee Jenks, who published the definitive history of early St. Clair County in 1912, described Alice Thompson as Dianthe Lusk’s niece. (Page 2 of 5) “I’m afraid Mr. Jenks was relying on family legend in reporting this relationship, and it wasn’t accurate,” Frantz told me last week. She has spent uncounted hours exploring the family connections. From what she has learned, Alice Thompson and John Brown shared an aunt — a woman named Elizabeth Mills — although they were not related. “It is certain, however, that Rev. Thompson was personally acquainted with John Brown,” Frantz reported. «« »» THOMPSON SAW the St. Clair River for the first time in 1831 when he traveled from Detroit to Fort Gratiot on the steamer Argo. “This boat was a novelty in the way of steamboats, at least it would be so now in the eyes of a ship-carpenter,” he would write many years later. “It was literally what is called a dugout. It was made of two logs put together in the form of a large canoe, decked over, and on this platform was placed a cabin and the engine.” The region obviously made an impression, because he and his bride settled at Palmer, as St. Clair was known at the time, a few months after their wedding in 1832. The African-American heritage in St. Clair is as old as the community itself. One of the earliest settlers in the 1780s was a free black, Jean Baptiste Point du Sable, who eventually moved on with his Chippewa bride. They are remembered today as the founders of Chicago. Another early black settler was the indomitable Malinda Paris, who worshiped at the Congregational church founded by the Rev. Thompson in St. Clair. Paris was born in Kentucky in 1824. Her father was ...

Why the US failed vs. El Salvador - ESPN

Sun, Apr 1, 2012
Forget the calls to fire Porter. That is a threat with no teeth, since the U-23 head-coaching job is a part-time gig anyway. Porter will return to his post at the University of Akron, running one of the premier college programs in the country. That doesn't preclude questions from being asked, however. Rarely has as much time and money been invested in putting an Olympic qualifying side together, with monthly training camps being held since December. The U.S. couldn't blame its failure on the vagaries of CONCACAF's Olympic qualifying format, either, as the Americans failed to navigate far enough to even subject themselves to a winner-take-all semifinal. The fact that the tournament was taking place in the cozy comforts of the U.S., rather than more hostile environs such as Mexico, only adds to the embarrassment. Tweet, tweet Don't miss a moment of the latest soccer coverage from around the world. Follow us on Twitter and stay informed. Join » So what happened? With the benefit of hindsight, it appears that Porter built his side based on the team he wanted to have, rather than the one he ended up having. Given that European club teams weren't required to release players, upwards of six U.S. performers weren't available to Porter. This resulted in a lack of defensive depth. Instead, he opted for a midfield triangle that was heavily reliant on a single holding midfielder. When that one player was Hertha Berlin midfielder Alfredo Morales, all was well, as evidenced by the way he repelled attacks in the 2-0 friendly win over Mexico, a pyrrhic victory if there ever was one. When Porter didn't have that player with a solid mix of bite and skill, the dominoes started to fall. The team tried almost too hard to adhere to his mantra of winning the ball back in six seconds once possession was lost, and sell-out, all-or-nothing tackles became the norm rather than the exception. The defense became more exposed, especially when facing the kind of speedy attackers used by El Salvador. Set pieces were conceded, and the U.S.'s frailty in this area became more pronounced. There were flaws in the plan as it related to the attack as well. In the latter part of the first half of Monday's match, the game opened up and the Americans got sucked into playing along, pouring too many numbers forward. What was needed was someone to dictate the tempo. Instead, the frene...

The dating game - Greenville News

Sun, Feb 19, 2012
Was it him, he thought, or was it just that hard to find dates? “I think Greenville itself, I feel like the social life, it’s a very coupled city,” says Walker, who grew up in Akron, Ohio. “At least for me, the singles-at-the-bar scene wasn’t what I was looking for if I was looking for someone to marry.” Walker is now engaged to Kate Nutter, whom he met through eHarmony. The dating market today is tough. Although we are more connected in some ways, changing social norms have meant changing the way we meet people, says Ingrid Sthare, founder of Together Dating, a matchmaking service in Greenville and a branch of the national eLove. Most of us no longer live in the same town we grew up in, she says, and we don’t necessarily meet our future spouse in college. Such transience and a greater focus on careers among both men and women mean many remain single into their 30s. “So what happens is they turn around at 30 and they say, oh my gosh, I’ve got to get serious about my personal life,” Sthare says. “And then it’s, oh my gosh, where am I going to go to meet somebody?” Starting over Sometimes, people don’t face that reality until 40 or 50. Matchmaking and online dating services are appealing to a new demographic of daters: those starting a new phase of their lives. In fact, Match.com’s largest demographic is those ages 30-49, and the site’s fastest growing demographic is people 65 and older. (Page 3 of 4) Together Dating’s Sthare has seen increased interest from those in their 50s, 60s and 70s as well. She attributes the growth to several factors. Many in the older demographics have been married before, often to high school and college sweethearts, have kids, and now in middle age have realized the marriage isn’t working. And so, they are thrust into the dating world again only to find it’s a little different. “We see clients who have been widowed or divorced and the whole dating world has changed so drastically since they were out there,” Sthare says. “I think it’s very haunting for them, so I think that’s why they want that additional help as well.” After trying to date around town after her nine-year marriage ended in 1998, Susan Sorrell finally turned to online. She logged onto Matchmaker.com, which in 1999 was one of the few online dating sites out there. She knew the stigmas attached (it’s for people who are desperate, it’s dangerous ...), but she also knew she needed a larger dating pool to choose from than Greenville. “My first husband was from this area, so I said I’m going to cast my net way out there this time,” Sorrell, 45, says with a laugh. After about three months she met John DeLeon, a divorcé working in the banking industry in Washington, D.C. The two hit it off, talking on the phone for hours every night for the next month. They decided to meet in Atlanta, a place John could fly into easily, and a place that was just a short drive for Susan. Sparks flew. And two weeks later they met again, and then they met each other’s families. It moved quickly, the two admit, mostly because when it’s the second time around, you know what you want, and what you don’t want. The ability to home in on whom and what you’re looking for makes online dating a good fit for many, says DeLeon. “But I think what helped us the most is we both had been married. So a lot of the feeling each other out, you go on instinct.” A new kind of fairy tale For many who meet online, just as for those who meet...
