Standing next to Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino and U.S. Rep. Michael Capuano at the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Charlesview Apartments at Brighton Mills in Allston Friday, Angela Holm drew on her childhood memories of the community.“I grew up in Charlesview, and it was my entire world,” said Holm, now a neighborhood coordinator in the mayor’s office. “I went to church every Sunday at Hill Memorial Baptist Church, took swimming lessons at the West End House, went to summer camp at Harvard Stadium and Girl Scout meetings at St. Anthony’s, and watched my friends play little league at Smith Park.”Holm said that sense of belonging and community in the old Charlesview Apartments was “the essence” of what brought elected officials, Harvard leadership, community leaders, and Charlesview representatives and residents together for the ceremony.“The new Charlesview Residences will serve as an anchor for this community, with the diversity of residents and strong ties,” she said. “I’m overjoyed to be here to celebrate this new beacon for Allston and Brighton.”The project’s first phase brings 240 affordable-housing apartments, a community center, 14,000 square feet of retail space, a half-acre park, and an expansive underground parking garage to the Allston-Brighton community. The community center will open by late July, offering workforce development and other programs for Charlesview residents and neighbors. Phase two will include 20 affordable home-ownership units.“Because the community came together, everyone has reached their goal of new housing, and it was desperately needed,” Menino said. “Harvard was a very important part of this, and we need to keep working together — that’s why we’re so successful.”Recognizing the leaders of the Charlesview Inc. board for their “courage, hard work, and determination” in the project, the Rev. Frank Glynn, the board chairman and pastor of St. Anthony’s Church, called them to the stage to be acknowledged. “The people standing here with me are outstanding to their commitment to the vision of Charlesview,” he said. “It is because of them that the dream of Charlesview has reached the heights of today.”Christine Heenan, vice president for Harvard Public Affairs & Communications, also emphasized the power of leadership and partnership. “This project was made possible in part by perseverance, but also by faith in what is possible when you stick with it and work together,” she said. “This project was also strengthened by the critical input of residents and the mayor’s office, who challenged us to do more, and do it even better.”Discussion of the new complex began nearly a decade ago, when representatives of Charlesview Inc. approached Harvard about a possible land exchange to replace the aging 1970s-era, 213-unit, low- and moderate-incoming housing development in Barry’s Corner.Working closely with residents, addressing concerns, incorporating their ideas into the project, and piecing together necessary funding involved multiple partners, including the mayor’s office, Charlesview Inc., the Community Builders Inc. (TCB), the Department of Housing and Urban Development, MassHousing, the Massachusetts AFL-CIO, and Harvard.The completion of the project, Capuano said, was “not just good for the handful of people who will live here,” but good “for all of Brighton, all of Allston, all of Boston, all of Massachusetts, and all of the country.”Thomas Gleason, executive director of MassHousing, noted that this was the largest project in the nonprofit organization’s nearly 50-year history.“It’s not just about the 240 apartments here, or the land swap with Harvard … it’s the transformation of this entire area. And not many teams could have pulled that off,” he said, adding that the project had come in under budget and before the two-year deadline established for the project. “This is what happens when people think outside of the box.”Bart Mitchell, president and CEO of TCB, which is the country’s largest nonprofit developer and owner of urban, mixed-income housing, emphasized that the spirit of places like Charlesview were part of what set Boston apart.“We work throughout the Northeast, the Midwest, and the mid-Atlantic, so I get to spend a lot of time in American cities, and here’s what all of them have in common: They wish they had the strength of Boston’s neighborhoods,” Mitchell said.Such places, Mitchell said, share “the conviction that strong neighborhoods are places of opportunity for people of all incomes, not just those that have the most … Allston is a great neighborhood, and Charlesview is a stake in the ground that it will remain such, for people of all incomes, throughout this century.”
- No Comments on Notre Dame graduate killed in Sunday morning hit-and-run near campus
- Posted on
Updated Oct. 18 at 4:43 p.m.A 2014 Notre Dame graduate was killed in a hit-and-run on South Bend Avenue just outside of the Linebacker Lounge early Sunday, according to the South Bend Police Department.Police said Hannah Turgeon, 27, was crossing the street around 2 a.m. when she was struck by an unknown vehicle.The St. Joseph County Prosecutor’s Office held a press conference Wednesday to discuss progress with the investigation and to ask for the public’s help in locating the driver.Investigators believe Turgeon initially crossed the street for an Uber or Lyft, county prosecutor Ken Cotter said at the press conference.Hannah Turgeon’s LinkedIn profile picture. Turgeon is a 2014 Notre Dame graduate.After the crash, the vehicle turned left onto White Oak Drive and drove off.Police were able to recover more information with the help of nine area cameras, Cotter said. Both witness testimony and video indicate the suspect vehicle is a large, dark-colored SUV, similar to a Cadillac Escalade, he said.Chief deputy prosecutor Eric Tamashasky said camera footage from Melissa Cook Stadium revealed an anomaly in the vehicle’s tail lights.“This car appears to have a horizontal section of brake lights about where the bumper would be,” Tamashasky said. “Investigators believe, I think fair to say, that this is potentially an after-market addition to the car. So this isn’t a standard make-and-model configuration.”He said the public should note the driver may remove the modification.“Anyone that’s close [to the driver] may have seen this particular configuration and may even notice that it’s gone,” Tamashasky said.Nearby cameras also helped police track the vehicle’s path away from the scene.“We have a pretty good idea, with all the videos they put together, of where the car was initially coming from, when it comes out of Edison [Road], when it makes the turn onto South Bend Avenue,” Tamashasky said. Courtesy of St. Jospeh County Prosecutor’s Office A satellite view of the scene of the crash and the surrounding area.By Cotter’s estimation, nearly a dozen were close by when the crash took place. Anyone with information should contact the St. Joseph County Prosecutor’s Office, Cotter said.“We need your help,” he said. “So, if you know what had happened, if you were there — frankly, if you’re the person who was involved, we’re asking you to come forward.”Investigators used surveillance footage from Sweeney Julian Trial Attorneys, located across the street, to estimate police arrived within two minutes of the crash.“I was incredibly impressed with the South Bend Police Department’s response,” Cotter said.Turgeon’s family is offering a $10,000 reward for information resulting in the arrest or indictment of the driver, Michiana Crime Stoppers announced Friday according to the South Bend Tribune.Tips may be submitted online at michianacrimestoppers.org or by phone at 1-800-342-STOP or 574-288-STOP.Turgeon, a former resident of McGlinn Hall, graduated from the University with a degree in art history in 2014.Paul Turgeon, Hannah’s father and a 1981 Notre Dame graduate, said he and his daughter were in town for the USC game.Tags: Hannah Turgeon, hit and run, Linebacker Lounge, South Bend Police Department
I love this time of the year. Everyone decorates with pumpkins, old flowers get ripped out and mums go in. As much as I treasure Belgian mums, I must admit that there is something special about mari-mums. I would be quick to tell you that there is no such thing as a mari-mum but, in actuality, they were named a Texas Superstar twice, in 1989 and 2013.The mari-mum is really a concept, and a doggone good one. Mari-mums are large-flower marigolds, known botanically as Tagetes erecta, that are reminiscent of chrysanthemums. Many of them really look like the old-fashioned homecoming mums of the ‘50s and ‘60s, only smaller.These marigolds are often called “African marigolds,” although they are really from Mexico. The Spaniards took these treasured flowers of the Aztecs and planted them in southern Europe and northern Africa, where they absolutely flourished. They flourish for us, too, in the spring, but they totally dazzle when planted in late summer as a small bedding plant or larger transplants like you find at the garden center now.If you live in an area that is already flirting with frost, then you should wait to plant mari-mums until next year. Here in Savannah, Georgia, and the South Carolina low country, mari-mums can perk up a home quicker than just about any other plant.Mari-mums or the marigolds, if you will, typically produce flowers before chrysanthemums and are still blooming when frost actually takes them out. If you associate spider mites with marigolds, know that this is a summer plague. Blooming mari-mums are hardly a target as the cooler temperatures of fall diminish the spider mites’ reproductive rate.Here at the University of Georgia Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens (CGBG) at the Historic Bamboo Farm, we plant ‘Taishan yellow.’ The Taishan series made its debut with the Beijing Olympics in 2008. This extraordinary marigold is named after the sacred Mount Tai in China, and “shan” refers to “mountain.”Over the years, I have come to realize that I am a sucker for all of the Tagetes erecta marigolds, and several of their hybrids, when it comes to fall planting. Moonstruck is one such variety that produces huge, pompom-like flower balls. It’s funny, I can spot this variety from a great distance. There are two series that are absolutely stunning in their design, looking just like mums with their unique outer petals. They are ‘Lunacy’ and ‘Mumsy’ marigolds. There’s a fickle market for marigolds as local growers can only produce so many varieties to sell at garden centers. On the other hand, if you are a marigold nut like me, you can find the flowers of your dreams via catalogs. As you probably remember from your childhood days, marigolds are about the easiest flowers to grow from seeds.If you are looking for that fall festival-like flower for your landscape, then, by all means, consider the large-flowered marigold. Surprise your garden center and tell them the new name is mari-mum. Combine them with the fall-blooming salvia, asters, ornamental peppers and a pumpkin or two, and you’ll have cornered that October look. Follow me on Twitter @CGBGgardenguru.

The nationwide movement that is inspiring and empowering all South Africans into active citizenship, received another boost today. Brand South Africa, under the #PlayYourPart programme, in partnership with IQbusiness, launched the #FlyYourFlag initiative at the IQbusiness annual Growth Conference on Tuesday, 9 October 2018 which was attended by 300 business, government and civil leaders.“We are extremely proud to be part of the #FlyYourFlag initiative that IQbusiness has proposed. The inspiring display of patriotism leading up to and during the 2010 World Cup, where everyone identified with the flag and wanted to be seen displaying the flag, infused a level of social cohesion that the country had not seen before. As proud South Africans, we need to recapture the spirit and pride of our rainbow nation and #FlyYourFlag” says Thembi Kunene-Msimang, CEO of Brand South Africa.The IQbusiness Growth Conference features exceptional thought leaders who provide practical advice on how to drive collective responsibility and participation in our country’s future.In his closing address, Adam Craker – the IQbusiness CEO – challenged all companies to reignite their South African pride by committing to flying a South African flag outside of all their branches, offices and other premises. “We are challenging business, government and civil society to show their commitment to the future of this country by proudly flying a South African flag. If we are serious about changing the direction of the country, we must look as much at ourselves as our new leadership,” says IQbusiness CEO, Adam Craker.Brand South Africa and IQbusiness will be the driving force behind #FlyYourFlag to address some of the challenges the country is facing:1. Job creation: The South African flags, flag poles and installation will be manufactured locally as part of the IQbusiness Enterprise Supplier Development (ESD) Programme.2. Flag ambassador: Flag ambassadors will be nominated, in each organisation, to be responsible for the flag; they will educate the community on its significance and how flags should be treated.3. Youth Empowerment: Roadshows will be conducted at all flag sites, on the importance of the South African flag and the etiquette accompanying it.
While Saturday’s top-billed matchups (specifically, Arizona-Ohio State and Kentucky-Cincinnati) looked sexier on paper than any in store on Sunday, day No. 2 of the round of 32 offers some solid games of its own — as well as fewer sleepers. Keep a particular eye on the trio of 2-versus-7 matchups, each of which should be reasonably competitive by the standards of this round.Here’s what else to look for:South RegionalGame to watch: No. 1 Duke vs. No. 8 San Diego State (a harmonic mean of 88.0) at 2:40 p.m. EDT on CBSUpset alert! No. 7 Iowa (27 percent win probability) vs. No. 2 Gonzaga at 7:10 p.m. EDT on TBSIN DEPTHDuke (85 percent win probability) vs. San Diego StatePlayer to watch: Jahlil Okafor, DukeAfter taking care of Robert Morris with ease in its opener, Duke moves on to face the slow-paced, defensively focused Aztecs. San Diego State has a tall team that ranks among the nation’s best at limiting opponents’ shooting efficiency and keeping them from getting to the line. But watch for Duke’s offensive rebounding (spearheaded by All-Everything center Jahlil Okafor) to offset some of SDSU’s defensive advantage. And when the Aztecs have the ball, scoring might be an ordeal. Neither of San Diego State’s two go-to guys on offense — Winston Shepard and Dwayne Polee — could even match the Division I average for efficiency when they ended an Aztec possession, a trend that figures to continue against a solid Blue Devils defense. Midwest RegionalIN BRIEFGame to watch: No. 2 Kansas vs. No. 7 Wichita State (87.6) at 5:15 p.m. EDT on CBSUpset alert! No. 5 West Virginia (55 percent) vs. No. 4 Maryland at 8:40 p.m. EDT on TNTIN DEPTHKansas (57 percent) vs. Wichita StatePlayer to watch: Fred VanVleet, Wichita StateWichita State’s offense clicked in the second half of its victory over Indiana on Friday, but the points may not come as easily against a strong Kansas defense that ranks ninth nationally in Ken Pomeroy’s schedule-adjusted ratings. The game may come down to whether Wichita State can execute its pick-and-roll — according to Synergy Sports, the Shockers’ pick-and-roll ball-handling efficiency ranked in the 93rd percentile of Division I schools; the Jayhawks’ defense was in the 85th percentile at stopping the play. At the other end, it’s worth watching whether the more interior-focused Kansas offense can adapt to take advantage of a Wichita State defense that dares opponents to move the ball around and shoot from the outside. West RegionalIN BRIEFGame to watch: No. 1 Wisconsin vs. No. 8 Oregon (87.3) at 7:45 p.m. EDT on TruTVIN DEPTHWisconsin (87 percent) vs. OregonPlayer to watch: Frank Kaminsky, WisconsinOregon’s offense — far and away the strength of the team — came to the rescue against Oklahoma State in the round of 64 as the Ducks shot 55 percent from the floor to outgun the Cowboys in a 79-73 win. But securing enough stops to beat Wisconsin might be a struggle for the defensively challenged Ducks. According to Ken Pomeroy’s ratings, Wisconsin easily owns the best offense in the country, a unit primed to take advantage of Oregon’s weak shot defense and inability to force turnovers. The Ducks also lack the risky traits that sometimes help heavy underdogs chance their way into upsets. But one path the Ducks might navigate to victory is to force the tempo and make the Badgers play at their pace. Oregon had the 33rd-fastest offense in the country this season (as measured by seconds per possession), while Wisconsin had the third-slowest. East RegionalIN BRIEFGame to watch: No. 2 Virginia vs. No. 7 Michigan State (89.5) at 12:10 p.m. EDT on CBSUpset alert! No. 5 Northern Iowa (55 percent) vs. No. 4 Louisville at 9:40 p.m. EDT on TBSIN DEPTHVirginia (72 percent) vs. Michigan StatePlayer to watch: Anthony Gill, VirginiaVirginia didn’t exactly look dominant against a stubborn Belmont team Friday, and now the Cavaliers must face an even tougher opponent in Michigan State. The Spartans have the talent to stick with Virginia — they’d have a 37 percent chance of the upset here if we based our prediction on preseason ratings alone — and their coach is familiar with deep tournament runs. Plus, Virginia operates its offense at a veritable crawl, slowing down the game and inviting the kind of variance that can prove deadly for a favorite. But other than their snail-like pace, the Cavaliers play a sturdy style as upset-proof as any, relying primarily on two-point shooting, ball security, rebounding, and an old-fashioned big, tough interior defense. It all makes for a team with few clear weaknesses, something Michigan State will likely learn the hard way.Check out FiveThirtyEight’s March Madness predictions.
OSU coach Urban Meyer looks out to the field before the Spring Game on April 15. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Photo EditorOn April 27, Ohio State will watch its top cornerbacks from the 2016 season, Marshon Lattimore and Gareon Conley, learn their NFL destinations in the first round of the NFL draft. But the task of replacing those corners was set in motion when the season ended.The team has lost its top pair of corners, but cornerbacks coach Kerry Coombs said the position has the most depth he’s seen since his arrival at OSU in 2012.“I’m extremely excited about the totality of the room,” Coombs said Wednesday.He added that he is not sure exactly who will play. Junior Denzel Ward and redshirt sophomores Kendall Sheffield and Damon Arnette are all in the mix, as are sophomore Rodjay Burns and freshmen Shaun Wade, Jeffrey Okudah, Marcus Williamson and Amir Riep.Defensive coordinator Greg Schiano said he is unsure of how the younger corners will perform, and that while the team knows what to expect from of Sheffield, Ward and Arnette, there is an element of mystery with some of the younger players.“There’s so many responses that we don’t know yet, because they haven’t been in that position with us,” Schiano said. “How will they respond when they get beat for a touchdown? How will they respond when they have an issue in class or an off-the-field issue that distracts them? Will they be able to come out here and block it out? Those are all things you learn about newcomers that we have to wait and see.”The perk of having such depth at the position is that there does not always have to be a bonafide set of starters downfield. Last season, though Lattimore and Conley were deemed the starters, Ward frequently rotated in with the pair and, in the end, received nearly the same number of snaps as the two future first-round corners. Arnette, though he participated in fewer snaps compared with the other three, also found himself in on the action for much of the season.The strategy of rotating the corners to keep all of them fresh for nearly the whole game proved successful. But Schiano said there is no guarantee the defense will use that same game plan next time, though he and the rest of the coaching staff would like to try it out.“I could see that happening again this year, but it really depends on the development of our corners and how they do,” Schiano said. “We’re very, very hopeful between our incoming guys, between our guys who were here, that we will be able to have that rotation at the corner spot.”One important piece to the cornerback puzzle will be the development of Sheffield, who was rated as the No. 1 junior college cornerback transfer by ESPN before landing at OSU, and was considered a five-star prospect before enrolling at Alabama and later Blinn Community College.Sheffield was highly sought after by OSU out of high school, Coombs said, and that once Sheffield decided he was going to transfer from community college, the coaching staff knew they were going to push hard to add him to the team.“As soon as I found out that he was becoming available again — I can’t remember exactly how, if it was internet or whatever – I reached out immediately,” Coombs said. “I began the process of recruiting him at Blinn right away really hard, and thankfully, he chose to become a Buckeye.”The oldest of the newcomers, Sheffield brings in an element of experience that many of the younger cornerbacks lack. As a junior college transfer, he had time playing in game situations, and Schiano said the key for him will just be to get the hang of things the more he participates.Freshmen might be counted on quite a bit in the defensive backfield in 2017 with no one player really standing above the rest of the pack.If those four incoming freshman are going to find success, they will not only need to familiarize themselves with OSU’s defensive style, but also work on making the transition from pure athletes to specialists at their respective positions.“In high school, you can get away with just being a great athlete. You can do it the way you’re coached, or maybe you can do it another way and still get away with it,” Schiano said. “Here, the people they’re going against are so good that if they don’t do it exactly the way they’re instructed, it’s hard to be successful.”

Ohio State senior forward Dakota Joshua (8) takes a shot against Minnesota on Feb. 15. Ohio State lost 4-3. Credit: Nick Hudak | For The LanternThe No. 2 Ohio State men’s hockey team (19-6-4, 12-4-3 Big Ten) saw its seven-game winning streak ended after Minnesota (12-14-4, 9-9-3 Big Ten) pulled out the 4-3 victory.Minnesota was consistently ahead of Ohio State throughout the match: every time Ohio State came within striking distance, the Golden Gophers countered to maintain the lead.The Buckeyes had a rough time going up against Minnesota in the beginning, but eventually found their stride in the third period where almost all of the action of the night took place. Junior forward Ronnie Hein said the team struggled to find momentum after going down early.“We know we’re a great hockey team and we’ve come from behind before,” Hein said. “Even when we were down one we weren’t worried about it. I thought we were actually playing pretty well before they had that first goal and then we shut down after that.”This weekend matchup against Minnesota was particularly special with it being Military Appreciation Weekend. To honor this, the Buckeyes wore jackets honoring United States troops and an induction ceremony for new Air Force members occurred in between the first and second period.“I think it’s pretty obvious,” head coach Steve Rohlik said. “We’re pretty thankful to be able to do what we do because of what they do.”Both teams began to pour on the points during the third period. It began when Minnesota junior defenseman Ryan Zuhlsdorf scored Minnesota’s third point midway through the period. Ohio State responded with a goal of their own only minutes later when junior forward Sam McCormick scored his first goal of the season, making the score 3-2. This was followed by a quick retaliation from Minnesota when sophomore forward Scott Reedy netted the Golden Gophers their fourth goal of the night. With only 3:35 left on the clock, freshman forward Quinn Preston cut the deficit to one when he sent a puck straight into the Golden Gophers’ net, bringing the game to 4-3.The Buckeyes pulled their goalie in the last remaining 30 seconds of the game but were unable to even the score, ending their seven-game win streak.Both teams played more aggressively in the second period than in the first. Midway through the period, Minnesota’s freshman forward Nathan Burke managed to advance its lead to 2-0. With 15.5 seconds left on the clock, Ohio State shortened the Golden Gophers’ lead when senior forward John Wiitala, assisted by junior defenseman Gordi Myer and junior forward Carson Meyer shot a puck straight past their defense, netting the Buckeyes their first point of the game.Ohio State only managed three shots on goal in the second period.The first period was relatively uneventful, with the only major highlight being Minnesota’s senior defenseman Jack Sadek putting the first goal on the scoreboard with 3:16 to go in the period. While Ohio State led in shots 7-5, Minnesota ended the period leading in points 1-0.“Probably playing our worst first two periods of the year,” Rohlik said. “That’s a start. We got our second shot-on-net in the second period right at the end when we scored the goal with 15 seconds to go.”No. 2 Ohio State plays Minnesota for a rematch in the Schottenstein Center at 6 p.m. Saturday.
