The Robinson Community Learning Center (RCLC) celebrated its 10th Anniversary Friday. The Center was established under the tenure of University President Fr. Emeritus Edward “Monk” Malloy. “This is a chance to celebrate and recognize that great things happen when good people pull together their knowledge and resources to help the young, old and everyone in between,” Malloy said at a celebration Friday. The accomplishments and collaborations of the Center were on full display Friday night at an open house held for the community. “It is always important to set ambitious goals, but also important to celebrate our successes,” University President Fr. John Jenkins said. Some of the programs based at the RCLC are a Lego Robotics team, an entrepreneurship program and a youth Shakespeare troupe. Charell Lucky, a student that participates in the youth Shakespeare troupe, performed Sonnet 40 and a scene from Henry VI. “The RCLC is a blessing for me and my family,” Lucky said. Take Ten, a violence prevention program in local public schools also celebrated. The RCLC is home to the program, which serves 16 schools in the South Bend Mishawaka community, as well as the Center for the Homeless, all Boys and Girls clubs and community centers. John Hess, a local principal, received the James A. Kapsa award for his work with Take Ten. “Take Ten works best when the principal steps up and is strong and instrumental to making Take Ten a success,” Ellen Kyes, director of the Take Ten program, said while presenting the award. Two members of the RCLC received an award for their participation. Isaiah Crudup won the James A. Roemer award presented to a youth participant that has excelled in the Center’s programs and Alfreda Redding won the Dr. Dale O. Grayson award honoring an adult in the RCLC education programs. The Renelda Robinson award, named after the community member whose name also sits over the RCLC, is given to a community volunteer that promotes learning and relationship building. Bridgett Mitchell received the award and was described as a volunteer who not only does the job, but does it with kindness. Two members of the Notre Dame community were also honored. Junior Caitlin Kinser received the Rev. Don McNeill C.S.C. award, which is presented to a Notre Dame student volunteer, for her dedication to the Shakespeare program at the center. The Arthur Quigly award is given to a distinguished Notre Dame faculty or staff member. This year’s recipient was Nicole MacLaughlin, a University Writing Progam teacher who partnered youth participants in the Shakespeare troupe and her students. She also received a grant that allowed her to take 25 Notre Dame and 16 RCLC students to Chicago to see Romeo and Juliet. “[The RCLC is the] heart and home of the east side,” Jasmine Brown, RCLC advisory board co-chair, said. “We need to be the visionaries of the future and the philanthropists of tomorrow.” Jay Caponigro, the current Notre Dame director of community engagement and first director of the RCLC, said he is confident the RCLC will continue on strong due to the great people and community that make the center what it is.
President Muhammadu BuhariNigerian President Muhamadu Buhari is in the United states for an official visit being hosted by president Barack Obama.Buhari began his four day day visit in Washington on Sunday where he is expected to hold talks with the President Barack Obama.The two leaders will talk about the threat posed by Islamist extremist group Boko Haram among other issues facing the new government of President Buhari.The U.S. is seeking to assist Nigeria in dealing with the menace that is Boko Haram, the militants, who have intensified their attacks since Buhari took office in May.The two heads of state will also likely discuss proposed political and economic reforms in Nigeria aimed at ending widespread corruption.President Buhari has been accompanied by a 33-man delegation, who will hold consultations with their U.S counterparts, and other events, aimed at building strong Nigeria-U.S relations.Also up for discussion during the visit is how the United States would help Nigeria track billions of stolen assets and increase U.S military assistance.This is Buhari’s first visit to Washington since winning the presidential election in March and assuming office in a rare peaceful transfer of power in Nigeria.Both the U.S. and Nigeria appear eager to improve relations after years of strained ties under President Goodluck Jonathan.Nigerian officials turned down some of the assistance the U.S. offered to combat Boko Haram, even after the militant group sparked international outrage with the kidnapping of more than 200 schoolgirls in May 2014.

A clearly outraged Councillor Fisher said he feels like he has been let down by the party who he has served loyally for decades.He told Donegal Daily “I can tell you one thing – this would not have happened if Bernard McGlinchey was still alive.“I was shafted by Fianna Fail and I don’t care who knows it. I was never asked to stand and I feel hurt by that.“What’s more is that my son David did plan to stand and run for election but he was not given a chance. “Although Fianna Fail held a meeting, the general card-carrying Fianna Fail supporters did not have a chance to select the candidates.“They were handpicked by these people from Dublin who know nothing about what the people in Donegal want.“My son David is a very well-liked young man and my history with Fianna Fail and my loyalty to them should count for something,” he said.The four candidates elected for the Letterkenny area are Ciaran Brogan, John Watson, Liam Blaney and James Pat McDaid.He added that he was genuinely serious that he and also son David are now considering standing as Independent candidates. “My phone has ben hopping now that the word is out that I have resigned from the party.“I am genuinely hurt and genuinely angry. I am deadly serious about standing as an Independent candidate and I have already received a lot of support from people I have spoken to,” he said.FISHER CONSIDERING STANDING AS INDEPENDENT AFTER BEING ‘SHAFTED’ BY FF was last modified: March 21st, 2014 by StephenShare 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)Tags:county councilfianna failVictor Fisher
SAN JOSE — Erik Karlsson is back on the ice, but he isn’t “close” to rejoining the Sharks lineup.Karlsson took his first-big step toward returning from a groin injury that’s sidelined him for 17 games on Saturday, skating for roughly 30 minutes prior to the Sharks optional morning skate.
