Elementary students sing, make arrangements of Christmas music for Elizabeth Church Manor residents

first_img“I just love singing,” said Madilynn Sharpe, a 4th grader. “It feels good to sing and make other people happy.” 4th and 5th grade chorus students performed four different songs for two groups of senior citizens. Three of the musical arrangements they brought included instruments such as hand chimes, rhythm sticks and sleigh bells. Teachers say the goal of the event is to integrate music and the arts to build school and community connections. And to put a smile on the faces of Elizabeth Church Manor residents. The art students also shared gifts they created with residents. BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — Chenango Bridge Elementary students brought holiday cheer to residents of Elizabeth Church Manor Thursday morning.last_img

Allardyce backed by Collins

first_img A left-back is believed to be Allardyce’s next target, with Ipswich’s Aaron Cresswell rumoured to be on the brink of a move to east London, and Collins wants to keep up the good work from the West Ham defensive unit. “Defensively we did alright last season,” he added. “We had 14 clean sheets so like the gaffer has said we need to concentrate on scoring more goals – that is why he has brought in Teddy (Sheringham) to improve us in the attacking half so hopefully we can score more goals and get off to a better start. “We (the defenders) have all been here a while now and know each other’s game very well so whoever is asked to play knows what is expected of them – it is a great group of lads so hopefully we can start off well and kick on from there.” Speculation was rife that Allardyce, 59, was on borrowed time with the club’s owners after the previous campaign was tinged with periods of disappointment. Having led the Hammers to a top-half finish in 2012/13, Allardyce oversaw a barren run over the turn of the year and reacted angrily when his side were jeered off the pitch following a home win over Hull towards the end of the season, with many supporters questioning his style of play. Press Association James Collins believes the decision not to replace manager Sam Allardyce in the summer will be massively important for West Ham heading into the new season. Despite those issues, as well as banners being unfurled and opinion polls being held calling for his head, co-chairmen David Sullivan and David Gold have stuck by Allardyce, something Collins feels will stand the club in good stead. “It is great,” the Wales international told Press Association Sport. “As soon as the news came out over the summer the lads were delighted. He has done well for the last two years, we weren’t too happy last season but we finished 13th in the end. “He is so good, he sets out a plan for the whole season and how many points we need to finish as high as we can and improve on last year. “The first couple of years is always tough – you see teams stay up in the first season and struggle in the second year. Last year we weren’t too happy but a lot of teams would have taken that. “We are looking to kick on this year, the gaffer has already brought in a couple of new signings and I’m sure there will be more. “Not once has the gaffer ever told us to play direct. It is about winning football matches, before every game he works out the best way to win and that is how we go out and play.” Collins was speaking on the first day of pre-season training, with new signings Mauro Zarate and Cheikhou Koutate joined at West Ham’s Chadwell Heath training base by the likes of Kevin Nolan, Andy Carroll and Ravel Morrison, who is back with the Hammers having spent the back end of last season on-loan at QPR. last_img read more

Title race not over for Pellegrini

first_img Pellegrini said: “Every point we drop will be more difficult. “When you have mathematical chances you must try to continue fighting, but the most important thing is to trust in what we are doing, try to win the next game and we will see at the end of the season where you will finish.” George Boyd struck the only goal of the game with a sweet, low left-foot half-volley from the edge of the area just after the hour. The Scot had shot narrowly wide with a volley from distance just moments earlier. City did muster 21 chances but only got five on target and generally lacked energy and a cutting edge. TV pundit Jamie Redknapp claimed it was the type of performance that could get a manager the sack, but Pellegrini – who is coming under increasing pressure – refused to criticise his side. He said: “It was a normal performance. I don’t think we played very bad. We had three or four chances. Burnley had just one shot on target and scored one goal, but we need to create more chances. “I don’t think we created the amount of chances we need to score goals.” Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini refused to accept the title race was over despite another heavy setback to his side’s chances at Burnley. The champions crashed to a surprise 1-0 defeat to the relegation battlers at Turf Moor and remain five points behind Barclays Premier League leaders Chelsea, who now have two games in hand. City have fallen away alarmingly since pulling level with the Londoners on New Year’s Day and have won just three of their last nine league games. Press Association When it was suggested the performance should not be acceptable, Pellegrini, speaking in his post-match press conference, said: “I said it was a normal performance. We will try to improve and we must do it.” On Redknapp’s remarks he said: “I accept any different opinions of all people.” With the title looking a long shot, City could now face a battle to hold on to second place – or even their spot in the top four – with Arsenal just one point behind. Pellegrini brushed aside those concerns and instead turned focus to Wednesday’s Champions League battle at Barcelona. The Chilean said: “We are worried just about our team. We continue in second place, so we are not doing so bad. We have 27 points more we must fight for to try to keep this position. “From tomorrow we must trust in what we are doing and try to win on Wednesday in Barcelona.” Pellegrini revealed that James Milner missed the game to rest a knee problem but was expected to be fit to play at the Nou Camp. The mood in the Burnley camp was understandably different after a result that reinvigorated their survival hopes. The Clarets’ victory – despite some battling recent displays – was only their second in 13 games and pulled them within a point of 17th-placed Sunderland. Manager Sean Dyche said: “Our will and desire to be in the Premier League is all on show, but we won’t get too carried away. “We know there’s a long way to go. The players are grounded. “We haven’t been broken from defeat – we’ve been dented a few times – but this win reinforces confidence and belief. “It was deserved, I think. Overall I think we edged it. It was a close game, why wouldn’t it be against players of that calibre? I’m obviously delighted with the outcome and the performance. “I have said many times this season I think the players are improving. I think they are growing and learning at this level. “It doesn’t guarantee the future and there is still room for more, but this reinforces all the good work that has been done.” last_img read more

Wisconsin host exhibition with Platteville Sunday

first_imgMATTHEW KUTZ/Herald photoFor most coaches, early season exhibitions have relatively little meaning, but that is not the case with women’s basketball head coach Lisa Stone, who will be reliving an old conference rivalry this Sunday when the Badgers host the Pioneers of UW-Platteville.One of the first stops in Stone’s coaching career began at UW-Eau Claire, a fellow Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference member with UW-Platteville. There, Stone guided the Blugolds to an astonishing 277 and 59 record over 12 years, an .824 winning percentage.he Division I all-time mark is an .839 set by Pat Summit of Tennessee — not bad company.For Stone, scheduling these games is a way for smaller schools like Platteville to not only get the experience of playing a Division I team but also to give back to their conference.”Having been a part of that, I am an advocate of their conference,” Stone said. “It benefits the WIAC schools. It is a great venue to spectate, not only in Division III, but in Division I. The men are doing it, the women are doing it and I only think it’s going to grow in popularity.”Last Saturday the men’s team took on a different WIAC foe in UW-River Falls and will host a Division III opponent next Monday when they face Lawrence.Whether the Badgers are playing Marquette or UW-Parkside, Stone looks forward to these match-ups as a way for all Wisconsin teams to showcase their best.”To see some of the state’s best athletes, I think it’s a great showcase,” Stone said.The state of Wisconsin will definitely be well represented by both teams as a total of 25 of the 31 players on both teams hail from Wisconsin.UW-Platteville comes in after a year that saw it go .500 with a 13-13 record, but it has a very experienced returning group that will not be intimidated by the environment in Madison.”They have five seniors that are trying to make this a special year and what a way to start — to have an experience to play against Wisconsin in the Kohl Center,” Stone said.Also returning are six of their seven leading scorers from a year ago, including all-conference honorable mention forward Holly Kaiser, who paced the Pioneers with 13.7 points per game last season.However, the Pioneers will have to deal with a Badger team that has four seniors of their own. Three of those seniors make a living down low on the block, but in the new “swing” style offense Stone has implemented, all the post players have seen increased opportunities to make plays beyond the free throw line.”[The post players] have tremendous roles,” Stone said. “Within this offense they are going to step out. We need productivity inside and the five post players we have, have great blue collar work ethics and they are relentless in wanting to get better and with that good things will come.”This Wisconsin team has had an excellent off-season and four weeks of practice thus far. According to Stone, the extra hours in the gym and time watching film have really paid off.”This is the first year that I have felt that our team is as ready as they are,” Stone said. “In my mind we are ahead of any team I have had since I have been at Wisconsin.”As for the aforementioned rivalry between Stone and UW-Platteville, it has been more of a one-sided affair as Stone has an all-time record against Platteville of 23-2. She looks to continue that dominance at 1:30 p.m. this Sunday at the Kohl Center.last_img read more
