Lyons hosts 17th 5k Mara Fox Run

first_img Buddie and Miller contacted alumni and businesses to further support this cause. With alumni donations, funds gained from race registration and sponsorships from several companies, Buddie said more than $3,000 was raised. These companies included Chipotle, Between the Buns, Outback Steakhouse and Luna Bars. PILLARS, a group on campus aimed at increasing alcohol awareness, and the Office of International Studies also worked to honor Fox’s memory by promoting the event. McCarthy said she is grateful to all participants, but especially Lyons rector Denise McOsker, who has helped continue the event every year. “I appreciate PILLARS coming in, and these young women putting in the amount of work that goes into this,” she said. “But I want to really thank Denise. She’s been a very happy, faithful person all this time.” The race itself was a 5k that stretched down South Quad, wound around Saint Mary’s and St. Joseph lakes and ended under the Lyons arch, a symbolic touch added by the co-commissioners this year. There was also a Fun Walk for non-runners. The male winners were seniors Michael Hogan, Evan Possley and Matthew Zak. The top females were senior Laura Lindsley, sophomore Alison Podlaski and senior Caroline Green. The top finishers from Lyons included freshman Meredith Houska and senior Katie Sample. Leading up to the race, McCarthy gave a speech in the Coleman-Morse lounge on Friday night about what happened to her daughter. Buddie also said Lyons sponsored a dance in the Monogram Room at the Joyce Athletic and Convocation Center. “The speech was fantastic,” Buddie said. “We’ve never had this before, and it was just a beautiful talk on what happened to Mara and why it’s important to run this race.” Every year, Fox’s family and friends come to the race. McCarthy said this year about 20 people came, and she said Fox would appreciate the cause her name has inspired. “Mara is with us here today. Her memory lives on, and for a good cause,” she said. “I know she would be pleased with that.” What started out as a chilly morning broke into an interlude of sunshine just long enough for the runners to weave their way around the 5k Mara Fox course Saturday. Over 300 people participated in the 17th annual Mara Fox Run sponsored by Lyons Hall, event co-commissioners Melissa Buddie and Erika Miller said. During this brief burst of warmth, runners and volunteers gathered to celebrate the life of Mara Fox, a freshman in Lyons Hall who was killed by a drunk driver on Nov. 13, 1993. Coming to Notre Dame from northern Virginia, Fox intended to study as a psychology and Spanish double major. The money raised from the run goes toward a scholarship that supports students to study abroad in Toledo, Spain, where Fox had dreamed of traveling, Fox’s mother Teresa McCarthy said. “We’re now sending a minimum of two students each spring,” she said. “One year we sent three.” Each applicant must write an essay about how they embody Fox’s characteristics and how they would help others while abroad. McCarthy said Fox instinctively knew she wanted to help others. “Eventually, when Mara got her degree she wanted to work with children in the Hispanic community,” she said. Pointing to her heart, McCarthy continued, “She just had this great love for people, and she knew it right from here.”last_img read more

‘Cemetery Lovers’ Mt. Upton couple work to preserve the memory of those who came before us

first_img“We love going to a cemetery to see what we can find, no matter where we go, even if we’re on vacation,” Dale said. Because Tina says, it’s those who are buried in places like Spencer Cemetery who we have to thank for the communities we call home today. “We put it all together this morning and then mortared in the base, that’s a typical repair job that we do,” Dale said Armed with a caddy and plenty of curiosity, they do everything from basic cleaning to full-on masonry repair. “We’ll clear the cemeteries, mow them, repair the stones, straighten the stones,” Tina said. They say they are always looking for new people to help out with the work, and are willing to train them as well. They do stress however that it’s important to have proper training and a knowledge of historic materials before attempting a repair. “They were the early settlers to this region and I always imagine what they went through and hardships they endured and we just feel like they deserve to be remembered” Tina said. “We especially like the old sandstone carvers from the early 1800’s because the work they do is unique and each carver is different, it’s folk art,” she said. “Sometimes it’s the only source document that these people ever existed, and when It’s on the ground it’s like they never were,” Dale said. Another component of their work is documenting the people who were laid to rest in a given cemetery, keeping their memory alive in digital space, not just the cemetery. Tina takes the time to research their lives and publish the information on findagrave.com as well as their personal facebook page. “If Tina is cleaning a stone, she looks at the names and the dates and she gets very interested ‘who is this person, where did they live, what did they do?” Dale said. Now they say you can almost always find them hard at work, preserving the memory of those who are no longer with us. In many cases they have no living relatives to look after their memorials, so it falls on the Utters to keep their memory alive. “You can find stones in here all the way back prior to 1800, we’ve got 1795, here’s 1796,” Dale said. Tina says their interest in carvers takes them to cemeteries all over. The Mount Upton couple met back in 2013, and were married in 2015. Tina says she’s been interested in cemeteries since she was five -years-old. Dale says it was meeting Tina and experiencing her passion for the subject that got him involved. It isn’t just repairs that the couple is interested in, they also dive into the artisans who made the headstones. This week it was Spencer Cemetery, nestled in a clearing in the trees on the on the banks of the Unadilla River, just over the bridge from Rockdale. Dale says he has relatives buried here dating back to the late 18th century. One descendant, Jonathan Spencer was a Revolutionary War Veteran. TOWN OF GUILFORD (WBNG) — On many afternoons you can find Dale and Tina Utter, tools in hand, working to refurbish headstones in cemeteries throughout the Southern Tier and beyond. On this day, they were working to repair an old stone that had broken into three pieces. last_img read more

West Brom reprimand for Berahino

first_imgWest Brom have taken action against Saido Berahino after the striker was videoed inhaling nitrous oxide in his car after the Baggies’ 3-0 defeat to Manchester United last month. Press Association The video, taken on March 8 and brought to light by the Sunday Mirror, shows the 20-year-old puffing the substance, otherwise known as ‘laughing gas’, from a balloon before slumping down over his steering wheel. Inhaling nitrous oxide is not illegal but it can pose serious health risks. center_img West Brom sporting and technical director Richard Garlick said in a statement released by the club: “I have spoken to Saido about the incident and told him in no uncertain terms that his conduct is not befitting a West Bromwich Albion player. “Saido knows he has made a mistake. He has apologised for his actions and has assured the club it will not happen again.” Berahino said: “This was very poor judgement on my part and not the right example to be setting. “At the time, I wasn’t fully aware of the serious health risks involved but now I know, I won’t be doing it again.” It’s not the first time a Premier League footballer has had to apologise for being caught inhaling the substance. Tottenham defender Kyle Walker was pictured using nitrous oxide days before England’s goalless draw with Ukraine in September. Drug advice website Frank says: “There is a risk of death as a lack of oxygen can occur when using nitrous oxide. “This risk is likely to be greater if the gas is consumed in an enclosed space or if a substantial amount is rapidly used.” Berahino is one of the most exciting young English players to have emerged this season, scoring eight goals in 30 appearances for West Brom since the start of the campaign. He was recently involved in a dressing-room row with team-mate James Morrison. Morrison apologised for hitting young striker Berahino who reportedly refused to say sorry for a mistake that led to Cardiff’s late equaliser in a 3-3 draw. last_img read more
