first_img In a statement, Groshong maintained that the attack was not unprovoked. He said, “However it may seem on video , the incident was provoked.” He did however express regret for his actions. “Although provoked, I should not have reacted in the way that I did and I am very sorry for my actions. I have never acted so appallingly in my life and I regret that this incident ever occurred. Furthermore, I had no knowledge that this disgusting behaviour of mine was being filmed.” Following the trip, Nick Brodie put the video online on his Facebook page and tagged a large number of Blues rowers in the video. The Boat Club President said he wasn’t able to explain his actions. He said, “I don’t really know why I filmed it or why I put it up on Facebook.” The video has subsequently been taken down. Brodie claims that he thought he’d limited the number of people who could see the video, but admitted that he was aware a lot of people had seen the footage. He said, “When I put it up I thought I’d restricted it to a certain number of people and it turns out everyone could see it. “ However, he confirmed that he was aware that people at other universities had seen the video and added, “I know loads of people have seen it.” Friends of some of the Blues rowers alleged that the rowers found the video hilarious. One said, “I think it’s disgusting that they filmed it and that they see it as some kind of amusement. I can accept the fact that this kind of thing happens, it’s just the fact that they put this on the internet.” Another added, “when I got shown the video the guy who showed me responded with laughter so I walked out of the room feeling pretty disgusted and sickened.” A large number of comments were posted under the video on Facebook, many from Blues rowers. In addition, Henry Sheldon, President of the Oxford University Lightweight Rowing Club, wrote on Brodie’s wall, “Thank you for posting that video of Colin, its [sic] considerably brightened up my day in the library. I literally laughed till I cried.” Brodie replied on Sheldon’s wall, “Its [sic] up there with the funniest things I have ever seen.” As a result of the incident the Imperial rower received a black eye along with a cut on his cheek. Friends of Mr Groshong suggested that the incident was out of character. One Blues rower who wished to remain anonymous said, “He’s not the kind of guy who’d go and get aggressive at all.” Nick Brodie added that Colin had “never punched anyone ever before.” Boat Club President Nick Brodie has been strongly criticised after he filmed a video of Lightweight Cox Colin Groshong punching an Imperial rower to the ground. Brodie subsequently posted the video on Facebook and acknowledged that “loads of people have seen it.” Friends of Blues rowers who were shown the video have branded it “disgusting” and “disgraceful.” The incident took place during a rowing regatta in Wroclaw, Poland two weeks ago. 8 teams, including one from Imperial College, competed against a Blues boat in the event, which was fully paid for by the Polish organisers. On the evening of May 11 all of the rowers went on a boat trip with a barbeque and bar. Following this, many of the rowers went on to a club. The incident occurred in the gentleman’s toilet of the club. In the build-up to the punch, Groshong was exchanging comments with a rower from Imperial College about St Catz and summer eights. One witness said it was a “jovial conversation which got heated.” There were “insults from both [and then] it got a bit more personal,” he added. Nick Brodie, who coxed the winning boat in this year’s Boat Race, said “it was provoked. It was a bit of banter, they were play fighting; they were both winding each other up.” Cherwell has seen a copy of the video recorded by Brodie on his mobile phone. The first person appears to say “walk away, walk away, walk away motherfucker” before punching the second person. The victim is knocked to the floor by the punch. He then gets up and asks, “What the fuck is wrong with you?” The first person continues, “You fucking smacked shit out of [insulted] me.” After around thirty seconds of shouting, in which the victim stands facing the camera, the video ends with an unidentified voice saying “Right, Colin, Colin, enough, enough.” last_img read more

first_imgLarry Phillips, center, of Shore Medical Center, accepts a case of medical grade masks from Andrew Moon, left, and Billy Godfrey. (Photo courtesy of Billy Godfrey) By TIM KELLYThe effort by a group of Ocean City men to purchase and deliver medical grade protective masks to aid the battle against the COVID-19 pandemic has been successful — and then some.Andrew Moon and friends Billy Godfrey, Tony Wilson and Steve McKusker recently located a source for the preferred “N95” masks and purchased and delivered 250 each to Cape Regional Medical Center in Cape May Court House and Shore Medical Center in Somers Point.As needed and appreciated as the donations were, the men realized the lack of protective gear was an ongoing problem worldwide in the fight against the potentially deadly virus. They wanted to keep the project going and continue to provide the masks. As a result, Moon put together a GoFundMe page.The results are nothing short of remarkable. The men set a goal of $3,600 to pay for a new order of the masks, and in less than eight days, generous folks pushed the total amount raised to $4,300, or $700 more than the goal.“The $3,600 was raised pretty quickly,” said Moon, who works with Godfrey at the Marr Agency Real Estate Group. “It was pretty neat to see that people were still making contributions when they already knew we had reached the goal.”With the proceeds, the men purchased 500 additional masks for each of the hospitals, Moon said. A portion of the extra money was used to purchase masks for OCNJ CARE, the nonprofit organization charged with organizing volunteers, identifying people in need and providing meals and other resources during this time of crisis.“That is awesome,” said Drew Fasy, OCNJ CARE’s chairman. “When Mayor (Jay) Gillian asked me to reorganize the group (it was suspended after fulfilling its original mission to aid victims of Superstorm Sandy) I couldn’t say no. The reward is seeing the very best in people as they respond to help those less fortunate. This group of men is a perfect illustration of that. These are guys who wanted to step up. They are putting their own health at risk to help others.”Fasy said his supply of the masks will be used by OCNJ CARE volunteers who deliver meals and other aid all around town.The other men in the group of friends are local business owners. Wilson, who is also a city councilman, has a plumbing business and McKusker owns Box of Rain Irrigation. All four of the men reside in Ocean City.Boxes of hospital grade protective masks purchased with the proceeds of a local crowdfunding campaign await pickup. (Photo courtesy of Billy Godfrey)Godfrey said the desire was to help alleviate the mask shortage, which has plagued front line medical personnel in the United States and elsewhere around the world in the battle to contain and eventually halt the epidemic.He said the men did not want to see a repeat of the situation in Italy, where news reports estimate one in ten of the coronavirus victims is a healthcare worker. With masks all but nonexistent there, doctors, nurses and other frontline personnel were treating infected people with makeshift masks or none at all.“We don’t want that to happen at the hospitals serving Ocean City,” Godfrey said in an interview prior to the original donation.Moon said the need at the local hospitals is critical as the institutions struggle with shortages of protective masks, gloves and gowns.According to Moon, the GoFundMe page will continue at least in the short term. To donate, visit“It’s a great feeling to see all the people who want to help and to give them a way that they can help,” Moon said.“It’s also gratifying to see the reaction of the people at the hospitals. They are truly grateful to receive these masks,” he added.last_img read more

first_imgBeloved NYC-based trio Moon Hooch has announced plans to release their third-ever studio album. Titled Red Sky, the new release will hit the shelves on June 10th, powered by the band’s creative approach to dance music. Somehow, with two saxophones and a drummer, Moon Hooch is able to turn any performance into an electronic-feeling dance party, and their extensive musical backgrounds never fail to entertain those in attendance.From a band that got their start busking in the NYC subway, this new LP is sure to capture the band’s development and musical refinement. Saxophonist Wenzl McGowen spoke about the new release in a statement, saying, “What we discovered playing in the subway is that the more focus and the more energy you put into the music, and the more you listen to everything around you and integrate everything around you into your expression, the more the music becomes this captivating force for people.”By bringing in Moog synths and EWIs (electronic wind instruments), Moon Hooch has been able to diversify their approach while staying true to their overall sound.

first_imgElection Commissioners Brian Abram and Norman Green demonstrate absentee ballot drop box that is available in Mayville and will be at Early Voting Sites in Dunkirk and Lakewood during operating hours. Submitted image.MAYVILLE — The Chautauqua County Board of Elections has received a record number of applications for absentee ballots.Election Commissioners Norman Green and Brian Abram say the Board has received 10,000 absentee ballot applications, easily surpassing the previous record of 4,000 applications.“We have received over 10,000 applications and true to our word, over 10,000 ballots have been mailed to voters,” Green said. “The same day we receive an application is the same day we mail a ballot to the voter. Our staff stays until the job is done every evening and fortunately the over time is being covered by grants that we have secured that is covering pandemic related expenses.”“We have easily passed our old record of about 4,000 absentee ballots issued. We are still a month from the election,” added Abram, “so the number of ballots issued will continue to increase.” Chautauqua County has 79,055 registered voters and expect a 70% voter turnout, or about 55,000 voters. A total of 5,147 of the 10,000 ballots have already been returned as completed to the Board of Elections.The deadline to request an absentee ballot by mail is two weeks from Tuesday, on Oct. 27.The deadline to apply in person, or by agent, is 5 p.m. Mon. Nov. 2nd at the Board of Elections, 7 N Erie St. Mayville. Ballots must be returned to the BOE or postmarked by election day, Nov. 3.Ballots may be returned via the U.S. Mail delivered to the Board of Elections Post Office Box or dropped at the Board of Elections drop box located at the Mayville Board of Elections. A drop box will also be available during operating hours at Early Voting Sites at the Chautauqua Mall, Lakewood and at the County Fairground, Dunkirk. Voters or their agents may also drop absentee ballots at any of the county’s 49 poll sites on Election Day.“Agents who deliver ballots to the Board of Elections, early voting sites, or Election Day poll sites are generally neighbors, friends or relatives,” Abram explained. “Voters are using agents to bring ballots this year because of fears about the reliability of the U.S. Post Office. We find these fears to be unfounded, but it’s our job to deliver services that voters want.”Early votes and Election Day votes will be tabulated and posted unofficially at after the polls close at 9 p.m. on Election Day.The Board of Elections will be opening absentee ballots seven and thirteen days after the election and adding those votes to the Election Day totals, along with provisional affidavit ballots for voters who have moved. The reason for the delay is that Chautauqua County is part of the statewide voter registration database. The board must wait for the state to research millions of voters to determine if any county voter has moved since voting absentee and at the same time, absentee ballots have until seven days after the election to arrive in Mayville. Military and overseas voters have thirteen days for their ballots to reach the elections office.The Board of Elections will certify results before Thanksgiving, Nov. 26.

President Trump’s 2018 and 2019 budgets also called for no funding for grants, but that was beaten back by lawmakers.The CDFI Coalition offers an online toolkit for advocating for the fund, and attendees at the CDFI Roundtable on March 11 at the CUNA GAC, coincidentally held moments after the budget proposal was released, were urged to tell their story to lawmakers while Hiking the Hill and beyond.
