  • College Mascots

    first_imgI had the privilege of meeting a young man earlier this summer who was Purdue Pete while a student at Purdue.  John is now a biomedical salesman who works closely with the Wound Care Clinic at the Hansen Center.  He is the answer to the Purdue trivia question “Who was the Purdue Pete who was arrested during a football game?”This may sound serious, but it really wasn’t.  As you know, mascots like to act like they are fighting during football games.  When Purdue Pete was feigning a punch, he accidentally slipped and actually hit the other mascot in the head with his hammer (a common prop).  The Security Police, not being sure of Purdue Pete’s real intent, separated the two and took Purdue Pete behind the stands.  As soon as they were out of sight of the fans, they simply advised him to remove the costume and disappear for the rest of the game.  No real arrest was made.Another interesting sidelight we learned is that Purdue mascots are not paid for any of their personal appearances.  They try out willingly knowing this.  However, John discovered that other mascots (such as the one at Georgia Tech) got paid several thousand dollars during the year for their personal appearances.  It would be interesting to know what other universities’ policies are.last_img read more

  • AH Celebrates Completion of New Borough Hall

    first_imgATLANTIC HIGHLANDS — “Finally,” said John Scheidt, president of Santorini Construction company, offering a sigh of relief and a smile of appreciation as the borough celebrated the completion of a two-year, $6 million renovation of the borough municipal building at 100 First Ave.Though a few small tasks remain to be done before the building is fully operational, Scheidt joined Mayor Frederick J. Rast III, the Borough Council, former mayors and borough employees in a New Year’s Day ribbon-cutting ceremony at the new facility.While the project was more expensive than projected and slightly behind the projected timeline, there were extenuating circumstances that contributed to the cost increases and delays, said Borough Administrator Adam Hubeny.Those included changes and upgrades the governing body agreed upon, and some snags related to utility work and issues with the weather, Hubeny said.The project came in at approximately $300,000 over the initial cost projections.Rast and the governing body decided to move forward with the renovation and expansion project back in 2009, to address long discussed concerns about the old borough facilty.Officials had admitted the municipal building, which contains its business offices, public library and police headquarters and dates back to 1970, had become too small to accommodate modern needs, did not adhere to handicap accessibility requirements, and had developed moisture and mold problems. Rast, with the support of the six-member council (four Republican and two Democrats), said it would be financially prudent for them to move forward with a plan to renovate and add additional space. He argued, given the economic climate many contractors faced, the borough would likely get very attractive bids and quite low interest rates, making it a propitious time to undertake the large project.“They had enough foresight to move forward with this project in difficult economic times,” the mayor said of the council. “They really saved a lot of money.”The borough also saved some money by taking an offer from the Avaya telecommunications company, which offered the borough office furniture from its closed Middletown facility. That, Rast said, probably saved about $100,000. Another cost saving measure, officials have said in the past, was for the local library to join the county system, with the county responsible for salaries and benefits.“Unless you’ve worked in construction, it’s difficult to appreciate a renovation as opposed to a new construction,” explained project architect Eli Goldstein. “And this was no ordinary renovation.”The project took the site’s existing 10,000 square feet and expanded it by another 8,000, officials explained when they broke ground on the project in March 2010. With the added space, “This building will allow us to grow,” and should continue to be viable for another 50 years or more, Hubeny said.And in the final analysis, Hubeny said, “You will be very happy as residents and taxpayers when you see what was done inside.”“We are happy with what we have,” said Police Chief Gerard Vasto of his new police headquarters.The old headquarters were built in 1970 and “built for 1970,” he said. Now, “Everything flows so well downstairs,” where the department will be situated, he said.“The officers will truly have a police headquarters that is truly functional,” the chief said, noting the department should be housed in the new facility within the week.Atlantic Highlands Mayor Fred Rast cuts the ribbon at the newly-renovated Borough Hall.last_img read more

  • Past sexual partner of Nova Scotia officer testifies at Garnier murder trial

    first_imgHALIFAX – A man who briefly dated Nova Scotia police officer Catherine Campbell was called to testify Friday about her prior sexual activity, as the defence closed its case at Christopher Garnier’s high-profile murder trial.The Crown alleges Garnier punched and strangled the 36-year-old Truro, N.S., constable inside an apartment after they met for the first time at a Halifax bar. The Crown also alleges Garnier used a compost bin to dispose of her body near Halifax’s Macdonald Bridge, where it was found five days later.In his opening statement earlier this week, defence lawyer Joel Pink told the 14-member jury that Campbell died accidentally during “rough sex” that she initiated in the early hours of Sept. 11, 2015.Garnier, 30, has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder and interfering with a dead body.Earlier this week, Garnier took the stand in his own defence, telling the jury that during sex play, Campbell encouraged him to choke and slap her.Before the witness took the stand Friday, Justice Joshua Arnold instructed jury members that they may decide to use the witness’s evidence to determine whether Campbell had an interest in rough sex.The man, who’s name is protected by a publication ban, told the jury he had sex with Campbell on two occasions, and at one point, he put his hand on her throat.When he was asked by Pink to describe for the jury how he did that, he opened his hand and placed it around the front of his own neck.Under cross-examination by Crown attorney Christine Driscoll, the man conceded that he did not put pressure on Campbell’s neck, and he agreed when Driscoll said his hand was on her throat in a “caressing fashion.”He agreed that she never asked to be choked.“She did not ask for domination? She did not ask for erotic asphyxiation? She did not ask for anything that you would think of as rough sex?” Driscoll asked.“No,” the man replied.The witness testified that Campbell wanted to practice wrestling with him following their second sexual encounter, and that they were partially clothed at the time.Pink pointed to a statement the man gave police after Campbell’s disappearance, in which he told them he had bruises after having sex with Campbell.But on the stand, the witness clarified his statement, saying he was bruised during the wrestling after they had sex.“It wasn’t during the sexual act,” said the man, the defence’s final witness.The man said he knew Campbell before their sexual encounters, and he said both were sober at the time. He said the last time he saw Campbell in person was roughly two weeks before her death.The man said they exchanged text messages and Campbell invited him over to her place on the evening of Sept. 10, 2015, hours before she met Garnier at the Halifax Alehouse. The witness said he did not meet Campbell that night.Arnold had earlier explained to the jury that the circumstances in which evidence of a person’s prior sexual conduct is admissible at a criminal trial is restricted to reduce the danger of prejudice and to protect their constitutional rights.“That’s because past experience has taught us that to this day, some still believe that a woman who has engaged in sexual activity with others is more likely to consent to sexual activity and is less worthy of belief. These assumptions are wrong and unfair,” said Arnold.“The evidence of (the witness) will be admitted for limited purpose. Depending on the testimony of (the witness), you may be permitted to use this evidence in determining whether you believe Ms. Campbell had an interest in rough sex.”Arnold told the jury they should not let the evidence of the witness influence their decision on any other issues in the trial.“In fact, I must warn you that you are prohibited by law from considering this evidence for any other purpose other than the one I have explained,” he said. “This is because this evidence may be very prejudicial if it is used for purposes other than those that I have described.”The Crown said it would not submit rebuttal evidence, which means the jury has heard all the evidence in the case.The trial resumes Monday, when the Crown and defence are expected to make closing arguments.Follow (at)AlyThomson on Twitter.last_img read more
