Making memories for autism

first_imgVALENCIA – Instead of their feet doing the walking, scrapbook lovers will be using their hands, hearts and minds Saturday to support families affected by autism. The Crop for Autism Awareness and Research event will allow participants to get together to preserve their special memories from 9a.m. to 9p.m. at Christ Lutheran Church, 25816 Tournament Road, Valencia. Proceeds will benefit the Santa Clarita Autism Asperger Network. “It’s like a charity walk, but instead of walking around, everyone is going to be scrapbooking all day,” said Sara Meissner, event organizer and a member of the SCAAN board. “It’s just a lot more fun than going on a walk, and you get something done.” Participants can sign up for a half day or a full day of scrapbooking, and those with errands to run during the day can come and go. Registration is $40 for a full day and $30 for a half-day and includes the crop lunch, snacks, drinks and prizes. Registration is encouraged, but walk-ins will be allowed, Meissner said. sharon.cotal@dailynews.com (661) 257-5256160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! About 50 people are expected to attend the third annual event. Meissner, who has a 5 1/2-year-old daughter with autism, plans to catch up on scrapbooking family portraits Saturday. “It’s a way to do something you enjoy with your friends while raising money for a really good cause,” she said. “I think the people who come feel really good. They get something accomplished, and they’re also helping out families here in Santa Clarita.” SCAAN is a volunteer organization that helps families affected by autism in the Santa Clarita Valley. The group provides monthly support groups, a monthly newsletter, conferences, social events, information on local resources and other services. Those interested in participating in the Crop for Autism can call Meissner at (661) 296-9531, e-mail info@cropforautism.com or visit www.cropforautism.com. Families affected by autism are encouraged to call to learn more about SCAAN. “A lot of people don’t know about us, so every year when we have events like this we find new families who need help,” Meissner said. last_img read more

MALIN IN SUPERB FORM AS THEY DEFEAT URRIS IN PRE-SEASON COMPETITION

first_imgTOM FARREN MEMORIAL CUP                                                                                                                 Malin 2-14 Urris 0-16Malin beat Urris in their second match of the Tom Farren Memorial Cup at Connolly park in perfect condtitions on Saturday evening on a scoreline of Malin 2-14 Urris 0-16. Kevin McLaughlin’s early free was canceleled out by an Anthony Kelly free before Urris went ahead from Ryan Doherty after a good score from a cross field ball. Kelly responded with two frees and another free from Darren McLarkey to edge Malin two ahead. Kevin McLaughlin kept Urris in touch after winning a turnover and making no mistake from the right. Dan McDaid worked a short free and turned to score from the right to keep Malin ahead though it was short lived as Urris came back through a Ryan Doherty score from distance and then McLaughlin did well from a long range free to put the Urris men up. Darren McLarkey scored from play off his left before Conor Bradley and Gary Farren fired over to leave the game all square at half time 0-07 to 0-07. Paul McLaughlin opened Malin’s second half account from the throw in with an effort from distance. Conor Bradley replied again for the visitors. Anthony Kelly scored again after the busy Christopher Doherty won a free . McLaughlin then caught a great ball above his head before jinking and turning to score another leveling point. Malin then pushed on and in the ‘championship quarter’ they hit 2-02 to Urris’s 0-01 to effectively put the game to bed. Paul McLaughlin started it off with a well hit 45’ and then Darren McLarkey  scored to stretch the lead to two. The same player got the key goal soon after as Malin stretched out to 1-11 to 0-09. Urris almost replied right away when Michael Grant pointed when a goal chance might have been on. Danny McCarron then swiveled and scored a second goal for Malin to move 2-11 to 0-09 ahead. In fairness to Urris they responded with seven out of the next ten scores but Malin had done enough to get their first victory in the competition and remain unbeaten in their pre-season campaign to date.

DONEGAL ABUSE VICTIM HAS EMOTIONAL MEETING WITH SMYTH CASE MAN

first_imgA VICTIM of crazed Donegal paedophile priest Eugene Greene had an emotional meeting with a victim of child abuse monster Brendan Smyth, donegaldaily.com can reveal.Martin Gallagher was abused by Raphoe diocese priest Greene in Gortahork.Brendan Boland was abused by Smyth and has caused a storm in the Catholic Church this week after revealing that Cardinal Sean Brady failed to warn parents of other victims. Both men were 11-year-old boys when they were raped by priests.And we can reveal the two met for the first time in Belfast this week – despite the fact both appeared separately in a BBC documentary on sex abuse in the Catholic church which was broadcast on Tuesday.“We were at the Nolan Show programme and it was great to meet Martin,” said Brendan Boland.“In a way we both went through the same things. It was good to meet; and good to talk about what happened. “The abuse which went on was horrible and I know now it was bad in Donegal so it was good for me to meet Martin (pictured below) and the retired detective Martin Ridge and discuss things.”There is growing speculation that Cardinal Brady offered to quit his position in 2009 – and will quit this weekend if the Pope agrees.“He should go,” said Co Louth man Brendan.“He needs to acknowledge his errors and do the right thing.”Meanwhile donegaldaily.com has been inundated with messages from readers confirming they were asked for money to give to Eugene Greene on his release from prison in 2008. There is outrage that supporters of a paedophile who raped children could benefit financially from his attacks.Donegaldaily.com has been conducting a new investigation into Greene and how the authorities handled the case – if you have information it can be emailed in confidence to info@donegaldaily.com. We will only contact people who wish us to do so.DONEGAL ABUSE VICTIM HAS EMOTIONAL MEETING WITH SMYTH CASE MAN was last modified: May 4th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Chewing on Evolutionary Stories

first_imgFish chew by sending their food on an assembly line to the back of the mouth.  Mammals chew by positioning food for the teeth.  Can evolution explain this difference?  Science Daily was sure of it.  “Evolution has made its marks — large and small — in innumerable patterns of life,” The article said.  “New research from Brown University shows chewing has evolved too.”  When one looks for the evidence that chewing has evolved, though, one only finds blank spaces filled in with the assumption that evolution must have done it. The article described chewing differences between fish and mammals in some detail, but when it came to the evolutionary explanation, these statements were offered without evidence.  See if they are convincing for a Darwin skeptic: The evolutionary divergence is believed to have occurred with amphibians… The difference in chewing shows that animals have changed the way they chew and digest their food and that evolution must have played a role. … lungfish, which is believed to represent an early stage in the transition of some species from exclusively water- to land-dwelling. Next came the task of figuring out where, when and with what species the divergence in chewing emerged. The thinking is that the transition likely occurred among amphibians. That makes sense, [Nicolai] Konow said, and he plans to look next at amphibian chewing. “They’re still locked to the water for reproduction,” he said.  “But you have some that become all terrestrial.  And that’s the next step on the evolutionary ladder.” Konow and his team did not offer any evidence for transitions between the chewing modes, other than to infer that “evolution must have played a role” in the change, and that “the transition likely occurred among amphibians.”  In passing, though, Konow admitted that “The distinction between fish and mammal chewing is likely there for a reason”.  He did not pause to consider whether reasons belong to teleonomic explanations, such as intelligent design, or whether reasoning is even derivable from evolutionary theory. How many times have evolutionists promised goods and handed us promissory notes?  More than we would like to chew on.  Don’t lend credibility to them any more till they pay up on past obligations – which will be never, because the collateral is held by IDBT, Inc.
