Calaway Classic beef show honors memories and creates new ones

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Kayla Hawthorne, OCJ field reporterWhen the farming community loses one of their own, everyone comes together to remember the life that was lost.On Sept. 30, the Meigs County Calaway Classic beef show was held in memory of Joann Calaway, who passed away unexpectedly in November of 2017. Calaway was a 4-H advisor in the county for 44 years known for her commitment to all of the youth.“She ruled the barn with an iron fist and a soft heart,” wrote Anita Morrissey and Patty Aldridge, Calaway’s niece and sister.Calaway enjoyed watching her sons Rob and Jeromee show cattle and then her granddaughter, Maddy. With several grand and reserve champions, the family has been successful with cattle from their family farm. Maddy competed in the Calaway Classic.The Meigs County Beef Show was in conjunction with the Southern Ohio Showdown Circuit, which consists of 10 shows in different counties in southern Ohio. Members of the beef industry in the county tried to get a show in Meigs County for more than five years. The committee wanted an opportunity for the youth to show in their home county.“Joann was a part of this committee,” said Carolyn Kesterson, the president of the planning committee.When the spot for the tenth county opened, the committee applied and won. They knew it should be named for Calaway.“Joann made an impact on anyone she met,” Kesterson said.Kesterson said they had to pay a membership fee to the Southern Ohio Showdown Circuit, but the money from registration fees and the local sponsorship stays with the committee. The plans for the funds are to continue the show and to provide a scholarship for a child from Meigs County who shows beef at the Calaway Classic or at the county fair.With memorials such as these, the lives and legacies left behind will continue to support the youth and future of agriculture.last_img read more

Parents Urged Not to Give up on Troubled Teens

first_img Centre Manager at the Teen Hub located at the Half-Way-Tree Transport Centre in St. Andrew, Nicola Walker, speaks to JIS News, recently. Story Highlights Parents are being encouraged to not give up on teens, who display behavioural problems, but instead, spend quality time with them and seek professional help if necessary.Centre Manager at the Teen Hub based at the Half-Way-Tree Transport Centre in St. Andrew, Nicola Walker, in making the appeal, said that many of the issues, which cause difficulties between parents and their teenage children can be resolved through counselling.“Counselling does help, counselling does work. Sometimes it is a mental issue that the child is dealing with, or some other issue that is happening out there,” she said during an interview with JIS News, noting that entities such as the Child Protection and Family Services Agency (CPFSA) can assist.She said that some children, who are labelled “bad”, may have learning difficulties and will need professional help.“Sometimes the parents don’t know how to get the help, and that’s why we (teen hub) are here. Come and talk to us; we will see how best we can get help for your child,” she noted.Mrs. Walker, who interacts with scores of youngsters daily at the hub, told JIS News that they need the support of their parents to navigate the difficult teen years.As such, she is advising parents to sit and talk to their children, noting that such interaction helps to build harmonious relationships.“Explain to them why ‘I don’t want you to go to that party, why I don’t want you out late at nights.’ Just explain your fears so that they can understand that you are not being rigid, or don’t want them to have fun; but that some of their actions may have consequences that they are not ready to deal with. Just spend some quality time with our teen,” she stressed.Mrs. Walker noted too that some parents may be overwhelmed with the pressures of work and making ends meet, which may cause them to neglect their parenting role.“Just get your emotional and mental state straightened out and then help the child. They can be better children, they can do right, they will make mistakes, but it is not the end of the world, and the child is not bad. Don’t throw them on the streets. Your efforts will one day pay off when that child will be able to turn around and be of assistance to you,” she said.The Teen Hub was established in 2017 to offer services such as conselling, career guidance and support to youngsters, and their parents where necessary.It is a partnership involving the Ministry of Health and Wellness, the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information, and the AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AFH).last_img read more

The Thunders Big Men Could Stop The Warriors Lineups Of Death

9Paul | Redick | Crawford | Griffin | JordanLAC+0.21 8Curry | Livingston | Barnes | Thompson | GreenGSW+0.22 As you may have heard, the NBA’s most unstoppable units reside in the Bay Area, in the form of Golden State’s small-ball “Lineups of Death.” Assuming those lineups are intact for the Western Conference finals, the Oklahoma City Thunder will have an interesting matchup on their hands in a series being billed as a battle of big versus small. In contrast to the Warriors’ small-ball lineups, OKC’s two most common postseason units have contained the hulking frontcourt pairing of 6-foot-10 Serge Ibaka and 7-foot Steven Adams.When on the court together for the Warriors this season, Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Andre Iguodala, Harrison Barnes and Draymond Green scored the most points per offensive chance (1.26) of any five-man unit in the NBA,1Minimum 200 chances, averaged between offense and defense. allowed the 13th-fewest points (0.83), and had the best per-chance scoring margin (+0.43).And that’s only the deadliest variation of the Death Lineup. Golden State also owned five of the next 10 best lineups by per-chance point differential, all of which contained a variation of Curry, Green and either Thompson or Iguodala or both. Four of those additional lineups featured one of Golden State’s traditional centers, Andrew Bogut or Festus Ezeli, as the lone conventional big; the other was a small lineup that swaps out Iguodala for guard Shaun Livingston. 2Lowry | Ross | Patterson | DeRozan | ValanciunasTOR+0.37 11Curry | Thompson | Green | Rush | BogutGSW+0.21 With Curry injured for most of the first two rounds, those Lineups of Death haven’t spent much time fully assembled in the postseason. The Warriors’ most crucial three-man combos — Curry, Green and Thompson, and Curry, Green and Iguodala — have logged only 94 total minutes together in 10 playoff games thus far. (They still outscored opponents by 61 points in that limited playing time!) But after Curry returned for the closing two games of Golden State’s series against Portland, at least one of those trios was on the floor for 62 minutes — a total in line with the 27.7 minutes per game they spent on-court together during the regular season.All this is bad news for the Thunder because the Warriors have a history of going small to combat good teams with lumbering big men: According to the Lineup of Death’s origin story, the tactic was only fully realized last year when head coach Steve Kerr had an epiphany during the NBA Finals and moved Iguodala into the starting lineup. That’s when the record-setting Warriors really took off, first against Cleveland and then against the rest of the league. An inability to match up with the same strategy could end up being Oklahoma City’s undoing as well.But we shouldn’t assume the Thunder’s big lineup won’t be able to hold its own. During the regular season, only 19 five-man units2With a minimum of 20 chances, averaged between offense and defense. broke even against Warrior lineups containing both Curry and Green. OKC had two of them — No. 7 and No. 13 — and both were of the big variety that the team has been using extensively during the playoffs: Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant, Ibaka and Adams, with either Andre Roberson or Dion Waiters on the wing. So in the matchup of preferred lineups, the Thunder might not be quite as outgunned as it seems at first glance.Of course, there are a bunch of caveats to tack on here. We’re talking about only 60 to 70 chances of track record from the regular season, and lineup data is notoriously noisy anyway. Plus, even though the Thunder’s big lineup did stick with the Warriors, the Dubs swept the regular-season series anyway.But as an exercise in figuring out how a 31 percent underdog could fight those odds, things might begin with Oklahoma City’s ability to slow down Golden State’s Lineups of Death. And what extremely limited data we have right now suggests that they could fare better than most.Check out our latest NBA predictions. 3Curry | Thompson | Green | Iguodala | BogutGSW+0.34 Minimum 200 average chances between offense and defense.Source: NBA Player-Tracking Data 6Curry | Green | Livingston | Iguodala | EzeliGSW+0.27 1Curry | Thompson | Barnes | Iguodala | GreenGSW+0.43 LINEUPTEAMPTS/CHANCE DIFF 10Lin | Lamb | Kaminsky | Williams | HawesCHA+0.21 7Paul | Redick | Griffin | Stephenson | JordanLAC+0.22 5Curry | Thompson | Green | Iguodala | EzeliGSW+0.30 4Lin | Walker | Williams | Batum | JeffersonCHA+0.31 The NBA’s best regular-season lineups in 2015-16 read more
