first_img“It’s a little stressful, but this community has shown to be very generous,” said Hansen. They collect money providing life-changing services to people in need. “We usually generate 20 percent of our budget during this time of the year so the red kettles are extremely important in our fundraising efforts and all of those monies stay here in Binghamton and in Broome County to service those people here at the local level,” said Captain Joseph Hansen with the Salvation Army of Binghamton. “Oh, I’m very hopefully we’ll meet the goal. I firmly believe this community will step up,” he said. (WBNG) — It’s a sound you know all too well when you’re out doing holiday shopping… Salvation Army kettle bells. If you are looking to donate, you can find kettles and bell-ringers at Walmart, Sam’s Club, Weis, and Price Chopper. “Year after year the volunteer issue is growing, just getting people to donate a couple hours at the stand.” “It is an option for people to come out. And I think as time goes on it will become more and more prevalent as people realize they don’t have to have cash to give,” said Hansen.center_img But this winter, the Salvation Army of Binghamton is at less than 30% of its campaign fundraising goal, with only about two weeks left. Hansen thinks an upcoming 24-hour kettle will help the organization reach its goal. That’s when one volunteer will be manning a kettle at the Vestal Walmart for 24 hours straight. It’s taking place December 20 starting at 4 p.m. Hansen says it’s not so much about the donors, but more so the lack of volunteers the area is seeing. The campaign ends on Christmas Eve, so there’s still time to raise money. And since the holiday season is about hope, that’s something Hansen is holding onto. He says people have actually been more than generous, especially considering ‘Kettle Pay’ was rolled out this year. That allows you to use your phone to make a donation. If you want to volunteer, you still can. Just reach out to the Salvation Army of Binghamton at (607)722-2987.last_img read more

Magath’s ranks bolstered by trio

first_img If Magath can mastermind back-to-back league wins for Fulham for only the second time this season, they will close to within two points of Norwich. And defender Jonny Heitinga is convinced the west Londoners can maintain their place in the Premier League. “You have to believe we can still do it, I believe we can,” he said. “The only thing that matters right now is the club’s survival – we just need to find the way. This is the first time I’ve been involved in a relegation battle, but you have to deal with the same pressures as when you are challenging for trophies. “Of course, the trophy for us will be staying up in the Premier League. It’s a real challenge but it’s up to us to play as well as we can between now and the end of the season.” Neil Adams insists his first match as Norwich manager will not on its own determine whether the Canaries retain their top-flight status. Adams replaced the sacked Chris Hughton on Sunday after the loss to West Brom which leaves Norwich five points clear of the relegation zone. Matches with Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal follow for the Canaries and many predict the losers of the Fulham-Norwich clash will be consigned to the drop. But Adams said: “I keep hearing the must-win, the one-game season. It’s a five-game season. We’re capable of beating anybody.” Adams, who last season led Norwich to victory in the FA Youth Cup, could invoke a seige mentality. “If people want to write us off, great,” he said. “We’ll be confident we’ll win games. If people want to give us no chance, fine. “We’re used to that. We’re down at the bottom end of the table with six, seven, eight other clubs who have been written off on a weekly basis. “(But) at Carrow Road against the big teams we’ve won games. “For these next four weeks, five games, we’ve got to leave no stone unturned and come what may, whatever happens, one thing we would’ve done was given it everything. “We’ve got to stay in this division this year. That’s the one and only goal.” Defender Michael Turner and Leroy Fer could be in contention to return after recovering from hamstring injuries and Wes Hoolahan is expected to be included in Adams’ first starting XI. Defender Sebastien Bassong should be fit following a knock, but Elliott Bennett (knee) is again involved with the under-21s. Fulham manager Felix Magath could welcome back three players for the crucial Barclays Premier League clash with fellow strugglers Norwich on Saturday. Press Association Defender Dan Burn is fit after a muscle problem with midfielders Scott Parker and Giorgos Karagounis also returning to the squad. Club-record signing Kostas Mitroglou remains sidelined with a knee injury but loanee Darren Bent could feature having missed the win over parent club Aston Villa last weekend. last_img read more

first_imgThey could have LAPD lock up the writers and LaVar would come to the jail and hold a news conference as soon as they got out to explain which Lakers coaches, players, executives or opponents aren’t giving Lonzo his due.The Lakers can’t hope to stop LaVar. They can’t even contain him if they keep being so nice, as opposed to having someone – Magic Johnson is the one he might listen to – tell him to shut up already.From Jeanie Buss on down, the Lakers are gritting their teeth, increasingly unable to endure LaVar’s ceaseless jibes: Claiming they don’t know how to coach Lonzo; calling Luke Walton “soft” for “babying” him; belittling the organization’s commitment (“The Lakers should build around Lonzo. Why are they sitting him down and not starting him in the fourth quarter? This is why the record is raggedy”); zinging teammates such as Julius Randle for missing Lonzo on a fast break in the loss to the Warriors since he “had a wide-open layup or a 3-pointer!”Obnoxious as LaVar is, he’s irresistible to the press. The biggest story of the season hasn’t been Boston’s fast start or Cleveland’s issues. It was Lonzo falling on his face (relax, Laker fans, it’s way early) but mostly LaVar being LaVar.Local writers would be happy to ignore LaVar, knowing most of their readers just want him to go away. Nevertheless, national outlets – primarily ESPN – cover the team with audiences that can’t get enough of the Balls’ drama as if they’re the Kardashians, just without sex appeal. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersRelated Articles Lakers stay the course as LaVar Ball ramps up criticism of Luke Walton LaVar Ball has created a monster. Its name is LaVar Ball.Last week while he created (more) headlines, pulling middle son LiAngelo out of UCLA, saying he will take him and LaMelo, whom LaVar had already pulled out of Chino Hills High, to play together overseas, the Lakers began barring the press from the family area at Staples Center.The press called it “the LaVar rule,” since it was clearly meant to keep them away from the out-of-control paterfamilias who had become increasingly critical of the Lakers.If only silencing him was that easy, or possible … Jokes and concern circulate online after LaVar Ball pulls LiAngelo Ball out of UCLA center_img Put LaVar Ball in Parent Hall of Shame: Letters Coverage ripples through the internet fanned by social media, exploding in the mainstream press.USA Today, a relatively sober outlet, has a “Lonzo Wire,” recycling news about the family, noting – droolingly – that the Balls “have more than 6 million followers on Instagram, 900,000 followers on Twitter and 700,000 likes on Facebook.”Fill in your email and Lonzo Wire will send the latest developments to your account each morning!“If it has any connection to the Ball family, you will find it on Lonzo Wire,” USA Today promises. “And if you’re a Big Baller, you should find yourself here every day, too.”Gag me with a spoon.This isn’t about a basketball-playing family but a loud-mouthed, attention-starved father who at 50 still thinks he could have beaten Michael Jordan one-on-one. In lieu of Mike giving him his shot, LaVar runs his sons’ lives even as they become young men and, supposedly, prepare to leave home for the wider world.In the bargain the kids are powerless to resist, LaVar is usurping their adolescence, taking them from mere fame into notoriety. So, good luck.For all the fanfare, Lonzo is their lone NBA prospect to date, difficult as it has been with only occasional flashes that suggest immense potential, as in Thursday’s win in Philadelphia when he turned it up while 76ers fans booed him when he touched the ball.“I think he’s not going to be good, he’s going to be great,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said recently. “I really believe that. I still think he affects their team in unscripted ways where you’ll never see it in the stats. Very few guys in the league have that disease, where just their actions bleed out to the entire game. …“But it seems like he’s the target. … Sometimes I’m so happy I was such an awful basketball player as a rookie, I could just go out and play.”LiAngelo, called “Gelo,” became infamous in his own right after his prank-gone-wrong in China.Modestly talented on a pro scale, Gelo isn’t projected as an NBA prospect. Even LaVar says he informed his middle son bluntly that he doesn’t expect him to make the NBA, telling GQ – yes, the glossy men’s fashion magazine – “He’s going to be taken care of, either way.”Thanks, Dad. Who knows, maybe at 19 Gelo should hope for more in life than being “taken care of” as the slug of the family empire?LaMelo, who was to be a senior at Chino Hills, was highly ranked (No. 7 by ESPN, No. 17 by Rivals), although at his age and size – listed at a twiggy 6-foot-3 and 155 pounds with 2 or 3 inches seemingly made up of hair – the NBA is a long way off.Unfortunately, where Lonzo’s selfless game is blissfully untouched by his father’s grandiosity, Melo shoots whenever he sees daylight, scoring 92 points in one Chino Hills game, missing 20 3-point attempts in another when they lost by 52.Only 16, Melo is hardly best served by going overseas to play against grown men, much less being targeted by Euro-opponents who read Lonzo Wire, too.(Yes, players still follow this saga with the same disdain. “Daddy rules so he probably had no say-so,” Houston Rockets guard Briante Weber said of Gelo leaving UCLA.)Unfortunately for the Lakers, LaVar won’t ever be lucid, or gracious, or accept responsibility. Worst of all, he won’t ever go away.If LaVar made all this noise with his kid scuffling, imagine how much breast-pounding he will do if Lonzo becomes a star.Get ready for more: Whatever happens in Lakerdom for the next 10 years or so will be punctuated by LaVar’s self-serving comments about opponents’ unworthiness or Lakers clumsiness.With the Lakers’ investment in Lonzo, he’s akin to family, making it painful for them to think about confronting LaVar.That’s the danger. The Lakers will always be conflicted, hoping for the best. LaVar, who’s all about LaVar, never will be.Mark Heisler has written an NBA column since 1991 and was honored with the Naismith Hall of Fame’s Curt Gowdy Award in 2006.
