A 30th minute try from Margaret Alphonsi, which followed some superb work by Woman of the Match Emily Scarratt, as well as a conversion and drop goal from skipper Katy McLean sealed the victory for the home side.England Head Coach Street said: “14 months of sheer hard work and preparation went into today’s performance. We were not satisfied with our performance in the world cup final and we had a point to prove as much to ourselves as anyone. We played some good expansive rugby and our big players stood up and put the work in all over the park. It feels great that all our hard work has paid off today.“All that said this is the start of a three test series against the world champions. Although I think we dominated most of the game and a lot of the areas, we have to keep this performance and momentum going. New Zealand are the world champions after all and there is no doubt that they will want to bounce back bigger and stronger on Tuesday at Esher, but we will be ready for that.”Unlike the World Cup final, England began the game with great control and attacked the Black Ferns hard. Nine minutes in and the visitors had not had a sniff in England’s half. The Black Ferns battled hard to regain control and they started to put pressure on England’s scrum but in the end they were penalised and England were awarded a penalty on 15 minutes. Fly-half McLean couldn’t make the penalty with her kick going just below the crossbar, but that didn’t put the home side off their stride.England continued to keep New Zealand in their half and came close to scoring after 20 minutes. Good line-out ball from Lichfield hooker Vicky Fleetwood saw lock Rowena Burnfield take it in. Alphonsi and Becky Essex both picked and drove, but in the end they couldn’t ground the ball with the Black Ferns defence holding firm.After 30 minutes though England secured a crucial try. Again, another well-worked line-out, with Tamara Taylor this time securing good, clean ball, saw the ball recycled out through La Toya Mason, McLean and then Scarratt who made a superb break with a great line cut through New Zealand’s defence. The Lichfield centre couldn’t make the try-line but Alphonsi was in support and blasted her way through to score. With McLean converting England took a 7-0 lead at half-time.New Zealand had their chances after the break when McLean’s kick was scooped up by wing Renee Wickliffe. Wickcliffe found space and ran through England’s defence but lost control of the ball close to the try-line when Scarratt came in and covered well in defence. England rang the changes as the 50 minute mark neared with Rachael Burford, Amy Tuner, Natasha Hunt and Laura Keates all coming on. And it unsettled New Zealand who nearly conceded a second try when Alphonsi got on the end of a clever chip from McLean, but again she was unable to secure the ball and ground it.McLean though continued to keep the scoreboard ticking over and stroked over a drop goal on 58 minutes to give the home side a 10-0 lead. England’s wingers, Michaela Staniford and Katherine Merchant, meanwhile continued to heap the pressure on New Zealand and Merchant came close to scoring after a 40 metre break, only for a tap tackle ten metres out to take her down.England and New Zealand are back in action on Tuesday for the second of the three match series at Esher RFC, kick off 7pm, before the final match on Saturday December 3rd, kick-off 2pm, at Esher RFC also.England15 Danielle   Waterman      (Worcester), 14 Katherine  Merchant       (Worcester), 13 Emily          Scarratt            (Lichfield), 12 Kimberley     Oliver  (Bristol), 11 Michaela Staniford     (Wasps), 10 Katy      McLean            (Darlington Mowden Park Sharks) (C), 9 La Toya         Mason            (Wasps), 1 Rochelle            Clark   (Worcester), 2 Victoria         Fleetwood     (Lichfield), 3 Sophie            Hemming       (Bristol), 4 Rowena Burnfield   (Richmond), 5 Tamara        Taylor(Darlington Mowden Park Sharks), 6 Rebecca            Essex(Richmond), 7 Margaret      Alphonsi        (Saracens) (VC), 8 Sarah   Hunter            (Lichfield).

A year on, India’s riot victims say justice still unserved

first_img WhatsApp Pinterest FILE – In this Friday, Feb. 28, 2020, file photo, a man gestures as a senior Delhi police officer speaks to a group of Muslims ahead of Friday prayers near a heavily-policed fire-bombed mosque in New Delhi, India. Many of the Muslim victims of last year’s bloody violence say they have run repeatedly into a refusal by police to investigate complaints against Hindu rioters. Some hope the courts will still come to their help. But others now believe the justice system under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Hindu-nationalist government has become stacked against them.

The right fielder made… read more 12PrevNextStartStop NEW JOURNEY: Mack Gibson retirement celebrated Skip Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day “I’ve worked for and with the greatest people in the world,” he said. “My clients are like family and I’ve formed close and lasting friendships. I have the best partners and we have excellent working relationships. Everything is in place for me to ‘finally’ retire. “Mary and I want to spend more time with the grandchildren, go to the beach and travel. I’m looking forward to being more involved in the arts and I’d like to read a good book every now and then. Retirement is not a sad occasion so I’m going to have some fun.”Gibson’s’ partners said it has been a privilege to have been mentored by Gibson through the years. “Mack’s knowledge of tax law has served our firm over the decades,” Stubblefield said.   “He has encouraged us as partners, as well as employees, to be engaged within our community with our professional skills and personal involvement. Stubblefield first met Gibson in the fall of 1975 when she was the treasurer for Alpha Delta Pi Sorority at Troy State University.“Who would have thought when I first met Mack in his office on Brundidge Street that we would have ended up working together,” Stubblefield said. “We have been friends, employer, co-worker and partners. It has been my honor to call him friend and partner all these years.”    Jinright, who started with Gibson & Carden in 1991, said he, too, has been fortunate to work with Gibson.“Mack has been a mentor, partner, and a friend for the 27 years we have worked together,” Jinright said. “We are all so grateful for his leadership of our firm.  Mack has served his clients and our community for a long time and his retirement is well deserved.” Gibson gave Hipps his first job out of college in 1990. “Since that time, Mack has provided us all with leadership and guidance over the many years of tax law changes, accounting rule changes, and seen us through a myriad of complicated client transactions,” Hipps said. “Our firm has enjoyed continuous growth and seen too many birthdays for us all.  I know Mack’s retirement has been a long time coming and I hope that it will provide him the ability to enjoy the many rewards for his professional diligence and hard work that existed throughout his career.”Phillips, laughingly, said any time he was asked when Gibson was retiring, his response was, “He’ll probably die at his desk. If he went home, Mary would probably kill him, just like Joy would me. But grandchildren tend to change things.”Gibson hired Phillips in January, 1978, and Phillips said it’s been a terrific 41 years.“I can’t begin to express my appreciation, nor can I repay the debt I owe for Mack’s guidance and everything he’s done for me over the years,” Phillips said. “We all wish him and Mary nothing but the best. I’m sure Mack’s retirement will be an enjoyable one.”And, if others have anything to say about it, Gibson won’t need a rocking chair.“Mack is one of those individuals who can’t sit around and do nothing,” said Marsha Gaylard, Pike County Economic Development Corp, president. “Mack has a lot to offer the community and I’m sure he will stay involved. He has been involved in the furthering of the arts in Pike County and is very active in his church, First Baptist, and as a member of the Troy Rotary Club.“Mack has been a tremendous asset to Troy and I expect him to continue to be involved and make a positive impact on our community. Mack is one of the most personable and loveable people you will ever meet,” Gaylard said. “We’re blessed that he came ‘home’ from Texas.”Wiley White, exhibition coordinator at the Johnson Center for the Arts, said if it had not been for Mack Gibson, there would not have been a JCA.“Mack led the charge for the board with his eye on the goal of having a cultural arts center in Troy,” White said. “He provided the leadership for our fundraising efforts and kept a positive and encouraging attitude, always.”White said Gibson plans to stay active in the arts and he is personally interested in the continuation of musical events at the JCA.“Mack will continue to be actively involved in the arts,” White said. “He will continue to support the ideas and efforts to move the arts forward. We all wish him the very best in his retirement and look forward to continuing to work with him in the community.” The partners of Gibson and Carden hosted a retirement reception for founding member Mack Gibson at the Johnson Center for the Arts on Thursday. Gibson has seen his profession migrate from hand-written ledgers to automated software systems and is long enough, Gibson said.“Everything has its point in time and my time has finally come to retire,” Gibson said. “I’m going to do it.” Gibson has slowly cut back on his workload in recent times.“People would ask my partners if I had retired and they would say, ‘No, but he sure acts like it,’” he said, laughing.Gibson will officially retire at the end of December but he will be around “if needed.” Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Latest Stories Sponsored Content Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are… Email the author Print Article Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration “You can’t do something for 50 years and just walk away,” he said. “I have enjoyed every minute of my practice and treasure the relationships I have formed over the years. The years have been so enormously fulfilling. I have no regrets. Now, I’m looking forward to the things that I might do. I’m not one to sit around. I love being involved in the cultural arts and I want to be involved in other things that are important to me, the church, city and community. I believe I can still contribute and I want to do what I can, all I can.”Gibson said he is leaving his clients in good hands. His partners, Beth Stubblefield, Darren Hipps, Ross Jinright and Allen Phillips, are all Troy University graduates. They know the community and they know their clients.“I’m the only odd one,” Gibson said. “I grew up in Glenwood but I went to college at Baylor in Texas. When I graduated, I wanted to come home and that was the best thing I ever did. If I hadn’t come home, I might never have found Mary.”Building an accounting business from the ground up was not easy. The workweek was seven days and many late nights but Gibson said he wouldn’t trade away those times.
