A Florida community is on edge after a man carrying a pocket knife was able to enter a local high school and sit down inside a classroom.Derek Marlowe was arrested Friday and charged with trespassing, disrupting school functions and breach of peace.Police say the 51-year-old was intoxicated when he rode a bike to Spruce Creek High School in Port Orange and walked inside, “unchallenged.”Marlowe reportedly entered the high school through an unlocked door.The teacher activated his emergency alert button located in the classroom, which said to send assistance immediately.However, the school was not put on lockdown nor were any code red calls made.School district officials admitted that “at least some protocols” for security were not followed properly.The incident is now under review.Deputies say, Marlowe, who has an extensive criminal history, was rambling about testing security.
Jupiter resident and pseudo mayor, Andrea Hermann Cameron is know for being the and mother of “Bachelorette” contestant Tyler Cameron.She died unexpectedly this week at the age of 55 of a catastrophic brain aneurysm.Andrea Cameron was a “staple” of Jupiter, Tyler said. She moved to Palm Beach County in her late teens after her childhood in Schaumburg, Ill., near Chicago, he said.Always joking that she was a mermaid in a past life, Andrea loved Jupiter’s proximity to the ocean. She had a regular beach spot where she’d go with her dogs, Austin said.“That was her safe space,” he said. “That was where she would go to unwind.”Growing up, Tyler remembered, she’d regularly hold parties at her house on Marlin Drive. People joked that she should run for mayor, he said.Since her death, there’s been an outpouring of support for the Cameron family, Tyler said. That’s proof of how big of an impact his mom had on his hometown and beyond, he said.“She was a mom to so many.”

By Bruce Fuhr, The Nelson Daily Sports Leaf coach and GM Chris Shaw continues to tinker with the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League squad. The Leafs added 6’1, 190-pound winger Joel Stewart to the roster in a futures deal with the Spokane Braves. “(Joel) is a tough two-way player who can score goals and is a big-time agitator,” Shaw said Saturday when asked about his new recruit. “Guys (in this league) don’t like to play against him.” “I know the guys were saying when I told them I acquired (Joel) is about how they hated playing against that guy,” Shaw added. In 16 games this season with the Braves Stewart scored eight goals for 16 points. The larger stat may be Stewart’s 86 minutes in penalties. “He going to bring some secondary scoring as well as a little more toughness added to our team,” Shaw explained. Stewart is the latest deal for the rookie Leaf skipper. Last month Shaw acquired Kyle Alexander from the Flin Flon Bombers of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League. Alexander’s stay was a short one — two games before being traded south of the border to Helena, Mont.Shaw then picked up winger Evan Moir. The 6’2”, 190-pound Moir played with the Calgary Canucks of the Alberta Junior Hockey League. “With the core group of guys we have there might be one or two moves made,” Shaw said. “You never know what’s going to happen with injuries . . . . Right now we’re kind of hit with the injury bug so you’ve got to bring another player in when you’ve got a player out for four to six weeks.”[email protected]
By Bruce FuhrThe Nelson Daily SportsIf this keeps up Jordan Melanson may have a difficult time getting a tee time at a local tournament.The Granite Pointe golfer found the winner’s circle for the third consecutive time, capturing the recent 2011 Sunflower Open at the Castlegar Golf Club.Melanson shot a 2-under-par 142 to win the title by three shots over a Kelowna golfer. Lindsay Walker of host Castlegar was third.“This tournament I putted much better than the previous two weeks,” Melanson, winning in Creston and the Zone One West Kootenay Men’s Qualifier over Granite Pointe teammate Josh Coletti, told The Nelson Daily.“(I was able) to tighten up that in the first round.”Cam Proctor won low net honours.Melanson opened the two-day, 36-hole tournament with a first round even-par 72.During round two the Simon Fraser University golfer ballooned somewhat to a 37 on the first nine before going 3-under 33 on the final nine holes.“I chipped in for eagle on (525-yard, par 5) 16 to pretty much secure the win,” Melanson explained.Melanson’s formula for success hasn’t been anything out of the ordinary. He just keeps it simple and the ball in play.“I keep the ball in play (off the tee), hit shots into the green below the hole, make a good stroke and hope it goes in,” said Melanson, adding the distance game has been able to increase by 10 percent thanks to work of SFU assistant coach Jared Boddy.The recent string of success has Melanson feeling pretty good heading into the provincial golf tournament circuit.“The great start to the summer has proven to me that the work I put into my game all winter is paying off, as I’m gaining more belief in myself and raising my expectations,” he said. “I hope to qualify for the Canadian Amateur again, and this time be able to make the trip to Winnipeg.”The B.C. Men’s Amateur Tournament goes July 12-15 at The Dunes at Kamloops.Three other members of the Zone One West Kootenay team — Josh Coletti, Ben Gresley-Jones of Rossland/Trail and former Granite Pointe player Brian DeBiasio, join Melanson in [email protected]
Women at the one-day Liberian Women National Political Forum (LWPF) held at a resort in SinkorBy David S. MenjorFollowing reports that all political parties vying in the October 10 polls are collecting thousands of US dollars from both female and male aspirants for primaries and fees at the National Elections Commission (NEC), the United People’s Party (UPP) has exempted female contestants by paying for their primaries.It may be recalled that some partisans of the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) resigned and crossed over to other political parties on grounds that their party was charging them huge sums of money to contest and manipulate the primaries.Speaking yesterday at a one day Liberian Women National Political Forum (LWPF) held at a resort in Sinkor, Monrovia, the chairman of UPP, T. Q. Harris, said women’s participation in national leadership is a priority at his political institution.“We are not receiving many female aspirants because of our commitment to pay for their participation in our primaries or help them settle all financial obligations with the NEC. This is what we need to encourage as a nation and work hard to let them feel the significance of being among us,” Mr. Harris said.He noted that women who will succeed to run on the UPP ticket would be qualified for such an honor and privilege, and have made proven and meaningful contributions at the level of their communities and districts.“Our country needs a transformed leadership and we have noticed that women in their good number will help in the crafting and implementation of developmental agendas when elected to the House,” he pointed out.Mr. Harris said his party is passionate about helping women succeed in their endeavors to lead.Although he did not say how much his party is paying for each female candidate, he said the UPP has made helping women an integral part of its political journey and will not allow to be held responsible for the failure of any competent and qualified lady not participating in the political affairs of the country. He expressed disappointment in parties that are marginalizing women and called on them to know that male dominance has been in existence for centuries, with very little success.Harris said presently his party has completed payments for both the primaries and the NEC for 16 female aspirants and is still looking forward to helping more women across the country.For his part, the chairman of the Coalition for Liberia’s Progress, Mr. Gabriel B. Saydee, said while it is true that women need help, they must also learn to be patient with their parties and work hard to merit consideration by delegates at primaries.He called on political parties giving women immense support to enter into a memorandum of understanding (MOU) demanding that they not leave the parties after winning elections.“We saw it around here with Mrs. Geraldine Doe Sheriff who won the Montserrado Senatorial seat on the ticket of the Congress for Democratic Change in 2014 but later left the party for her own best-known reason,” he said.Nine political parties, including CDC, LP, CLP, UP, UPP, among others, participated in the one-day political forum and agreed to support their female aspirants.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
ST. LOUIS — Pete DeBoer probably wants to burn the tape, a phrase he often uses when the Sharks throw a clunker out on the ice.A goalie switch up and the tweak to the backend couldn’t stop the Sharks from putting forth their worst performance of the season in a 4-0 loss to the St. Louis Blues Friday night.With Aaron Dell in between the pipes and Tim Heed making his 2018-19 debut in place of Joakim Ryan, the Sharks (8-6-3) got shutout for the first time since Oct. 8 and as they lost for the …
Essential Reading! Get my 2nd book: The Lost Art of Closing “In The Lost Art of Closing, Anthony proves that the final commitment can actually be one of the easiest parts of the sales process—if you’ve set it up properly with other commitments that have to happen long before the close. The key is to lead customers through a series of necessary steps designed to prevent a purchase stall.” Buy Now There is tremendous value in outcomes-based thinking. One of the reasons people struggle to produce the results they’re capable of is that they lack goals, and a focus on the outcome. For example, maybe you want to win a new deal. But you don’t win a deal. Instead, you do all the things necessary to produce the outcomes that eventually result in a prospective client signing a document that makes them an actual client. While it’s critical that you have your outcome in mind, it is the execution of the inputs that allow you to execute that outcome. Winning on the inputs is part of the domination strategy.Inputs = OutputsThe following inputs are in a particular order to make a specific point about inputs and outputs.Meetings: If the outcome is a scheduled meeting with your dream client, certain inputs provide a reliable action plan to create that output. The inputs for booking a meeting include:Researching your dream clients to develop a theory about why they may need to change,Nurturing the relationships over time to become known as a value creator,Using a professional pursuit plan that allows you to persist long enough to obtain that meeting, as well asThe language choices that demonstrate that your client will not be wasting their time when they meet with you.Oh, and then there are cold calls.Without these inputs, you will not produce the output. Too little activity around these inputs is also a recipe for poor outcomes.Engagement: If you want the outcome that is your prospective client deciding that you are a person worth engaging with to change some result, there are many inputs you need to leverage.How you open your first sales call and set an agenda for the meeting provides your prospective client with some idea as to what it’s going to be like to work with you.The types of questions you ask and the insights you share demonstrate the quality of your thinking and approach, another critical input.Your ability to help your dream client understand where they are in time and space, as well as the ideas they should explore to improve their situation, are inputs.Weak inputs lead to poor outcomes.Control the Process: Your ability to describe and control the process is an input to your ultimate result.The ability to ask for and obtain the commitments you know your dream client must make to initiate change and produce better results precedes the result you create. If you can’t ask for and obtain the commitments, either you or your dream client will skip steps, miss commitments, and struggle to move the initiative forward.Allowing your client to control the process is the same as agreeing to a request for a proposal, in which you have no say in what comes next or why even when your advice would produce a better result for your prospective client.No more pushy sales tactics. The Lost Art of Closing shows you how to proactively lead your customer and close your sales. Inputs again equal outputs.Poor Inputs, Poorer OutcomesThere are two areas of inputs you need to consider when you want a particular—or better—outcome. The first is whether you are generating enough input, a measure of activity. The second, and sometimes even more important, is the effectiveness of the contribution.If you want meetings, too little activity will make it challenging to achieve the outcomes you want. If you want more meetings, increasing the activity (inputs) invariably leads to better results, which is why so many sales managers ask for higher activity. When a lack of action results in little input, the right answer is to turn up the volumes.It’s an enormous mistake to look only at the activity as an input. All you need to know this is true are the paragraphs above that describe inputs of greater difficulty and skill than a cold call. The effectiveness of the contribution is equally important, and in some cases, even more critical. It is no good to have a poorly executed first meeting with a client.Having poorer first meetings with a client only does more damage faster and across a larger group of prospective clients. Your effectiveness in having client conversations is an input.A Two-Prong Approach to ImprovementIf you need better results, you can pursue these two strategies simultaneously. You can increase your activity while also improving your effectiveness. Of the two, many people believe generating more business is their real challenge when in truth, that is the easier of the two. Improving your effectiveness requires intentionality, time, energy, and a willingness to change your approach—even when it is uncomfortable.Pursuing improvement in both areas is almost always faster than more effective than choosing only one.If what you are doing now would produce the result you need, you’d already have that result. If you are not achieving that result, you need to focus on increasing and improving your inputs.
