Barnes named ABA citizen of the year

first_img Barnes founded Sister Schubert’s Homemade Rolls in Troy in 1991. Her business actually started in her home kitchen when she began making homemade yeast rolls from her grandmother’s recipe.“It all goes back to my grandmother,” Barnes said. “I think that it’s ironic that her ‘Everlasting Rolls’ have had such a huge impact and, hopefully, will for some time to come.”In 2000, stock in Sister Schubert’s Homemade Rolls was sold to Lancaster Colony Corporation. While retaining an active leadership role as founder and vice president of Sister Schubert’s, Barnes set up the Barnes Family Foundation to fund her philanthropic mission. To date, the foundation has distributed more than $2.3 million to charities, scholarships, historical preservation and work with abandoned children.

Minor league baseball team takes down its tweet to Colin Kaepernick about Betsy Ross flag

first_imgA minor league baseball team in Tennessee sent an American flag-themed tweet to Colin Kaepernick on Wednesday. The team later waved a white flag of surrender.The Tennessee Smokies, the Cubs’ affiliate in the Double-A Southern League, were responding to Kaepernick’s disapproval of a July 4-themed Nike shoe that included a depiction of an early U.S. flag. The Smokies’ social team tweeted images of a so-called Betsy Ross flag that the team’s grounds crew drew in the dirt around second base. The team included Kaepernick’s Twitter handle and made reference to Nike’s slogan, “Just Do It.”  After the Twitterverse had its say, the Smokies deleted the tweet after and issued an apology to people who may have been offended. They did not apologize to Kaepernick.Regarding one of our recent tweets regarding @Kaepernick7 and our field design for tonight’s game, it was meant to be a light-hearted take on a current situation. We did not mean to offend anyone by it. If it did, we certainly apologize.— Tennessee Smokies (@smokiesbaseball) July 4, 2019MORE: Colin Kaepernick doll seen hanging by neck from truck Twitter commenters made sure everyone could still see the deleted tweet. Not to worry, I have a screenshot of you endorsing systematic racism and violating the flag code. pic.twitter.com/hXJmYEuaVL— (((Catherine))) (@pantone165) July 4, 2019The Wall Street Journal reported Monday that Nike halted the release of its Air Max 1 Quick Strike Fourth of July shoe after Kaepnerick, a Nike endorser and a former NFL quarterback, objected to the company stitching Betsy Ross flags into the backs of the shoe. According to the Journal, Kaepnerick associates the flag, which Ross supposedly helped to design in the 1770s, with slavery.The stars in the flag represent the 13 original U.S. colonies, who declared their independence from Great Britain on July 4, 1776, and fought the British army in the Revolutionary War to ensure that independence. The stars are arranged in a circle in the upper left corner.Kaepernick, 31, has not played in the NFL since the end of the 2016 season. He sparked a national firestorm that year with his protests of police brutality and racial injustice during the playing of the national anthem before games.last_img read more

It attracted 42 male and female competitors from across Britain, France and The Netherlands, including new players Ellie Perks (Hagley Golf Club) and George Blackshaw (Delamere Forest).During the competition there were other winners for the Net Category and Stableford Category:Net Category (handicaps up to 20.4): Tony Lloyd (The Shropshire Golf Centre) who scored a net total of one under par 143 for his two rounds.Stableford Category (handicaps above 20.5): Kevin Cook (LLanwern Golf Club) who scored 34 points and 29 points to win the title by two points with a total of 63 points.The presentations were made by John Williams, Past President of England Golf, and Susanna Rendall, Director of Stoke by Nayland Hotel, Golf and Spa.Jamie Blair, Inclusion and Wellbeing Manager for England Golf, commented: “This event truly shows that golf and the handicap system focuses on your ability as a golfer and not your disability.“Stoke by Nayland have been fantastic hosts and I would like to say thank you to the management, staff, members and volunteers who have embraced this event, creating a welcoming environment for players new and experienced and making it a huge success.“I would also like to say thank you to our referees and to the R&A for their support. Without them, we would not be able to run a championship that showcases the game at the highest level of competition for golfers with a disability in England.”View the 2019 results herelast_img read more
