It’s certainly cold enough for snow here in Charlotte, but as it usually is when we get this cold, it’s sunny and clear with nothing but blue skies and cold, cold, cold plus wind.

I miss living in a snowy climate. I grew up in the snowbelt of Northeast Ohio, and sledding, snowmobiling, ice skating & skiing are some of my favorite childhood memories. I’m the oddball who moved south with a melancholy feeling of loss when I left my promise of winter fun each year. We’re only two hours from quite a few nice ski resorts in the North Carolina mountains, and Ohio is still full of family and friends who would love visitors. There are snowy opportunities, but it won’t be a regular part of life. Part of me is sad that ETC won’t be immersed in winter life, that it’ll only be a rare & temporary experience for them.

Then I think about how long it takes me to get them into a single layer of clothes some mornings (there are many I give up and declare pajama days), and I want to kiss our mild winters here in Charlotte, NC. I’m talking a big, sloppy, right-on-the-lips kiss.

How many snow memories does one need, anyhow?

    Heber Springs Coach Johnette Goldman is one of a kind, a true trailblazer for the sports of cross country and track and field in Cleburne County and beyond. Goldman was awarded National Federation of High Schools Coach of the Year for girls cross country in a letter released to the school last week. Under Goldman s direction, the Lady Panthers have won six state championships in cross country (2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2012, 2013). The boys program, which she helps instruct along with head coach Dale Cresswell, has also won six state crowns (2004, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014) in the same span. Time nor space will allow me to list all the wonderful memories I have been blessed to experience while coaching at Heber Springs, said Goldman. Recollections of loading the team up in the back of my S10 two-door Blazer to run Bittle Road when it was dirt. I will ever hold dear the beaming tearful faces of champions. Never will I take for granted the hard dedicated work of so many great kids. There were those hurt faces that worked so hard toward a goal, yet the end result just fell a little short. It is a true blessing to witness the next generation coming through and watching our kid’s kids become good athletes in their own right. I will ever be indebted to the goodness people have shown our program and myself; indebted to the giving of time and self by so many parents and fans. The camaraderie and friendships being a teacher/coach at Heber Springs is beyond anyones hope. I am most richly blessed with wonderful memories and trust there are more ahead, added Goldman. Kind, unselfish, encouraging, dedicated, relentless and tireless are some of many words that come to mind when thinking of Goldman. She is a tireless worker, emphasized Heber Athletic Director Brad Reese. She is up here all the time. We tell her to take a break so she doesn t burn herself out. She burns the candle at both ends. She does what she needs to do for these kids whether it be treatment, individual work She is up here working with these kids during the summer with Dale [Cresswell] of course. They will load up and go on a bus somewhere to run two or three times a week during the summer. She is at their disposal pretty much 24/7. She has perfected her craft of coaching cross country and track and field, added Reese. Goldman pushes through each day at Godspeed a motto that rubs off on her athletes, who push themselves to the limit while competing whether at summer morning practice or a state meet. Page 2 of 5 – Godspeed is suppose to be a kind expression for one going off on a journey or new undertaking, said Goldman. I mean it as a pray of God s blessings to the young man or woman to whom it is shared, especially at an important meet. I think all this of late is an example of God s grace and mercy. He saves us, though we don t deserve it. Honors that I in no way deserve, but yet bestowed. I am grateful that so many athletes at Heber have not wasted the gift of talent. All good things come from Him. To God be the glory . Madi Fires, who had an integral role for two of the Lady Panthers state championships (2012, 2013), said it s an honor to have a chance to speak about such a special coach and person. I am both honored and intimidated to get to say something about Coach Goldman, because how can anyone put in words the kind of impact she s made on this community. I think I speak for the community when I say there is not an award you can give her that amounts to how amazing she truly is, added Fires. Goldman shies away from the spotlight, but as the coach of a program boasting 12 combined cross country state championships, she can t run from the fact she has positively impacted so many. Coach Goldman is the type of person that gets awarded a National Coach of The Year title and gives credit to everyone else because she doesn t think she is any more special than the next person, Fires said. She s not just a coach. She s the type of person you would be lucky to meet once in your lifetime, and I got to be with her for six years. Six years of her being off the clock and meeting me early in the morning and later at night so I could squeeze my run and lift in between volleyball and softball practices. Six years of her being my FCA leader and Christian example through her caring actions. Six years of her cheering on the sidelines during painful practices, WE ARE THE PANTHERS, THE MIGHTY, MIGHTY PANTHERS! Six years of her waiting at the end of the race telling me she was proud of me, whether I managed to get a PR or one of my worst times yet, because I tried and that s all she ever cared about really, Fires said. Six years of her listening to my complaints and problems, and taking them on as burdens of her own. Six years of her begging to use the gift cards that the team got her, on us. I saw more dedication, love, persistence and motivation in one person in just six years, than I have ever seen in anyone in my entire life. She is the type of person I can only dream about being half as good as, and that s being pretty generous, said Fires. Page 3 of 5 – Although Goldman s title is girls cross country coach, she has made a major impact on the boys too, including former Heber stars Jake Sanders and Justin Smith. Both earned scholarships to run distance at UCA after completing stellar careers at Heber. Sanders time with Goldman helped him choose a career path. The constant love and support I’ve received from Coach Goldman through the years plays an enormous role in my decision to become not only a coach, but a mentor to many young student athletes, just as she is, said Sanders. What makes her such a great coach is she focuses her time on the mechanics of being a great runner, jumper or thrower, Sanders continued. She understands the sport more than anyone I’ve ever been around, and knows that first an athlete must become a student in their event if they want to succeed. Along with her coaching abilities, she is a great encourager and knows how to mold an athlete’s mind into always having a positive mentality about the upcoming race or event. I never went into a race without knowing I had a coach who believed in me in my years as a Panther. She made sure to keep us humble as a team and always told us, “Let your feet do the talking”, which kept our heads on straight and kept us focused on the race or event ahead, and ultimately led to the production of many great athletes and teams. There is not a soul who deserves this award more than Coach Goldman, because she truly is the nation s best track and field coach. So, congratulations to Coach Goldman, you’re an inspiration to us all, and I thank you very much for everything you’ve done and continue to do for me and every individual and team you coach, added Sanders. Smith, who ran for the Panthers from 2003-06, has many fond memories of working with Goldman. I am extremely proud to hear that my former high school cross country coach was named NFHS National Coach of the Year. None other is more deserving than this incredible encourager and leader. Coach Goldman s passion for running, love for young people, and unwavering dedication has impacted the life of so many in our community. My wife, Cassie Smith, and I ran under her guidance for several years. She taught us how to run, but more importantly, she taught us to always believe in ourselves. Congratulations Coach Goldman, you deserve it, emphasized Smith. Goldman logs about as many miles as most of her runners during a meet. During track/cross country meets you could always see her running from one side of the track/course to another, cheering on every one of us no matter what place we were in, said Smith. Page 4 of 5 – Smith also recalls Her and Cresswell always bickering at each other…In a good way, but very funny. She always came to school with a positive attitude. Reese said it s an honor to have Goldman at the school. We are just honored to have her here touching the lives of our kids and our athletes here at Heber Springs. She gives the kids and other coaches credit but she has been the main cog in the wheel here since Coach [Harold] Wilson left. Goldman arrived at Heber in 1980 after playing basketball and running cross country at UCA, where she graduated college. We did not start girls cross country until 1987, by the encouragement of Mr. Steve Choate and by the example of Coach Harold Wilson, said Goldman. He was taking his distance runners to meets as a prep for spring track. I was junior high basketball, junior high track, and assistant senior high up until then. Lewis Wallace, Joni Hamby, and Dennis Davenport had coached the senior girls basketball and track before that. Goldman continued. I am very grateful that Dr. John Vandiver, Principal Cecil Daves and A.D. Dennis DeBusk gave me a chance. I am thankful G.A. Lynn Daniels asked me to run XC at UCA when she found out I ran for basketball. I am thankful my high school basketball coach, Jessie Bradford, got us together one day after basketball season was over and asked if any of us would be willing to train for track. Goldman coached the Heber girls basketball team from 1980-95 before making the transition to cross country/track. Although she had already began preparing athletes for basketball through cross country. I was already used to running and racing the kids in the fall for cross country as we prepared for the basketball season coming up, playing ball through the winter months, and then switching to track after basketball season ended. My voice issues would no longer allow me to yell over all the noise in a gym, but I could still talk to a kid at an event or as he/she ran by me in a race. It was a blessing in disguise. XC/TF is a better fit for me. Goldman says Heber s success in cross country/track and field encourages the younger kids to reach their potential. The hard workers inspire me, said Goldman. I think the competitiveness is in them already. They just need a chance to let it out. I think they want to contribute to the tradition that is already been set by others before them. Page 5 of 5 – It is a challenge they set for themselves to see if they can be ranked with some of the Heber elite, added Goldman, who received the Arkansas Activities Assocation girls cross country Coach of the Year in 2013.

[url=]toms shoes outlet[/url] Hey everyone!I’m back! Did you miss me?Hope you all enjoyed the show last night. I thought it was a great one and honestly, if you had asked me two months ago, I didn’t think I was going to be part of it. When I initially decided to sit out this season, I meant it. I had this great opportunity with New York Spring Spectacular and I felt like it was time for a break from the show. But as time went on, I realized that I wanted to be part of the 20th season anniversary. I think some people were sort of disappointed at me leaving and to be honest, I was too. At a certain point, I was kind of bummed out and it didn’t feel right not to be part of that. I had been talking to producers about doing a guest performance during the season and I realized that I had Mondays and Tuesdays off, so I was like, “Maybe I can work this in, fly in for the Monday shows, fly back to New York Tuesday and rehearse there for the week.” I said it as kind of a joke, and they were like, “Yeah, we can look into it.” And then they came back and said, “We think it’s possible if we can find the right person.”Originally, I was supposed to be dancing with someone else and at the last minute, she pulled out. I’m not sure what happened. So then I thought I wasn’t going to do the show. Then, like two days later, they called and said, “We found somebody based in New York who is willing to do the travel.” Nastia is at NYU right now, so she has to be here in New York as well, not just because of me. We met and we hit it off. It was serendipitous and meant to be.We both knew going into it what the schedule is going to be like, so we’re prepared as you can be, I guess, for this. Nastia is busy too, not just with school, but she has other prior commitments. This week, she has to be in Vegas. A lot of people ask me if I think I’m hurting her by doing both shows and I would say no. Because for me, it’s about getting ahead and utilizing every moment I have. When I’m here with her, I’m rehearsing with her and creating a routine. We’re both excited to be part of the experience. We’re not really worried about the results. As you know with me, I want to create a moment and routines that will be remembered that will hopefully mean something to viewers. I also see this as a challenge and you know I love challenges! Last year with Amy was a challenge. Could I do this? Is this possible? Can I do 10 shows a week and travel back and forth? I want to try my best and find out.Page 2 of 3 – I will say that from a health standpoint, I will probably be more healthy this season because there is a sense of extra care when you have a lot on your plate. There’s more thought that goes into the planning and management. I literally have five meals a day now. I take vitamins and all sorts of stuff, so fingers crossed I won’t get my usual midseason illness!Nastia and I are getting along really well and I thought she was great in our foxtrot. Next week, we have the rumba and it’s to a really beautiful song. She has a lot of natural skill and ability, so I’m excited to see what she can do if we stay on. I think one of the weaknesses is the expectations place on her. I think a lot of people are expecting her to do well. That’s, of course, nice to hear, but that in and of itself is a weakness. When people are surprised by someone, that’s an edge. You might do something spectacular, but if people are already expecting it from you, it might not resonate as much as it will from someone you didn’t expect it from. It’s an advantage and a disadvantage. I think people will also want to compare Nastia to Shawn and Aly, which is natural. But it’s more incentive for me to push myself and come up with better choreography. I think everyone will find as we go along that they’re all completely different dancers, just like how they’re all completely different gymnasts.I loved the show itself last night. For me, the star was the packages. They were hilarious. They were so funny and I think you could see the extra effort that was put into them. We were joking that they looked like full movie productions. I thought everyone did well, which is tough for the first night. Tony was my favorite, just for wearing that outfit! I went up to him afterward I was like, “You are my hero. Only you could have the self-confidence to do that.” Actually, no, Mark definitely would’ve enjoyed that outfit too! It was a good opener for the season and the anniversary. I really am grateful to be part of it this season and being with this cast. Having working Amy last year, I have an idea of what it’s like to work with prostheses, but with Noah, it’s totally different. I give major props go to him and Sharna. That was an incredible routine. It’s moments like that that make me proud to be part of this show. Not many shows would have the courage to tell his story or they would maybe be afraid of making people feel uncomfortable. I’m really glad people can learn about Noah and hear his story and watch him do this show with such grace. He’s a true inspiration.Page 3 of 3 – As for New York Spring Spectacular, everything’s going smoothly. We’re in preview right now and we open next week. It’s a blast and I’m having a lot of fun. It’s a family show and it’s very whimsical and cartoon-like, so I have to be way over-the-top. I’m less worried about the dancing than I am the singing.

[url=]true religion[/url] Speaking in Swaledale on Thursday where he made five speeches, one of them at Reeth to a gathering of 65 people, Mr Keith Schellenberg prospective Liberal candidate for Richmond, criticised the apathy and inaction of the Government in failing to give practical help to rural communities over the last 13 years. During the last ten years there had been a drift away from the land of ten per cent. The Government’s agricultural policy was quite inadequate despite their assurances to the farming community. At present the farm worker was poorer off than any other section of the community and he did not have any alternative to farm work. The small and medium-sized farmer had a poor profit potential for any money he had invested in his farm would give a better yield if put in Government securities or ordinary industrial shares. The whole issue as far as agriculture was concerned was the fact that large combines supplying the farm with feeding stuffs and fertilisers, and the big commodity buying organisations, siphoned off the profit that was really due to the farmer. The consequence was that the profits of these organisations were something in the region of four times that of the ordinary farmer. If the farmers themselves adopted a more business like attitude to the purchase of land they could help themselves a great deal. Land was being bought by farmers at twice the price that could normally be justified by any commercial undertaking, said Mr Schellenberg. The Government had made no effort to attract light industry to the market towns which were an essential supplement and alternative to agriculture. They had also made no effort to solve the problem of providing adequate public transport for rural areas. They were quite content to allow people in rural communities with no strong voice, to fight against the sort of situation where water rates were something like six to seven times as high as in other parts of the country. z [url=]burberry scarf[/url]

If a journalist copies even part of a sentence without attribution, their credibility is destroyed and future employment is in question. But companies can falsify ingredients in food that put people at risk, and no one seems to care.I understand that the political pendulum is swinging toward deregulation and a more efficient government. I am a big fan of being frugal. There is no reason to waste money. But it seems like there is a better way to increase efficiencies than ignoring food fraud.The Food and Drug Administration has some regulatory authority and some recent moves have forced restaurants to list calorie counts on menus.But consumers still have no idea what they are buying when they go to a restaurant or grocery store. Reading the label means nothing.The U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention (USP) keeps a public database at that documents instances of adulterated products or falsified labels. They added more than 800 products to that database last year. That锟絪 right. There are 800 new products in addition to a frighteningly large database.Manufacturers are cheating the system in order to maximize profit margins.

They are sometimes feeling the health effects of some blend of coconut and palm oil.Milk is diluted, spices are mixed with fillers, and fish are mislabeled to get around FDA warnings and prohibitions.How many people enjoyed college and professional football games last weekend with a big bowl of chili flavored with 锟絚hili powder锟?that was full of dried beets to add the characteristic red color without spending the extra money on chili powders?We have the infrastructure in place to prevent a significant portion of these frauds.
