| Building Addition Update
In the previous BMustangs building report, I mentioned that while there were things being wrapped up, all should be in readiness for the opening of the new school year on August 13th. I did mention that the theater might be the lone exception and that it would be a photo finish if it were to be completed on time.
Development Committee Member Roger Keller assures me that everything, including the theater, will be in-play by opening day. On Friday, Marc Cetrulo of Hollaender Manufacturing was overseeing the installation of the railings in the theater, while a crew was busy anchoring the brackets for the seats, which are awaiting installation.
| Mustang SoccerStangs Take Two at Bluegrass Games,
Defeat North Hardin 4-0, West Jess 1-0
Sunday Game With Dunbar Cancelled Due To Inclement Weather
The Mustangs traveled to Lexington over the weekend to get some touches against teams they normally donít play from around the state. The Mustangs newest senior class, 10 in all took the field against North Hardin. This new crop took over right where last yearís group left off. They scored early and had a convincing 4-0 win. The first goal of the game came 41 seconds in when Senior, Jacob Frommeyer caught the keeper sleeping and out of position as he took a shot from just inside the halfway line that bounced over the head of the keeper and into the back of the net for the early 1-0 lead. The second goal of the game came in the 8th minute when the Mustangs got a corner kick. The corner was deflected and found the foot of Junior, Dylan Geiman who blasted the ball from just inside the 18 for the 2-0 lead. The Mustangs picked up their third goal when Senior, Gabe Roberts placed a great cross right to his fellow Senior, Nick Dierig who found the net for the 3-0 lead, which the Mustangs took to the half. The Mustangs put the nail in the coffin in the 61st frame when Sophomore, Cody Chisim sent a great ball to Jacob Frommeyer who took a left footed volley that sailed past the keeper for his second goal of the day.
The Mustangís Defense looked good as Jeff Paulin got his first shutout of the season. Defender and Senior, Mark Goller looked big and strong as he hit the weight room since last season. Senior, Dalton Linebach also played well coming back after a year off. Jacob Frommeyer, the Junior not to be confused with the other Jacob Frommeyer looked solid as well on defense.
The Mustangs picked up their second win of the day in a 1-0 contest against West Jessimine Colts. Last season the Colts made it to the Kentucky Sweet Sixteen, but lost to the Highland Bluebirds in the first round. The Mustangs going against a strong wind had many opportunities in the first half, but couldnít capitalize and the game was tied 0-0 at the half. The Mustangs would get the game winner in the 55th minute when Jacob Frommeyer sent a great corner to Mark Goller who headed it into the net for the 1-0 lead. The Mustangs defense held off the Colts in the final 15 minutes for the 1-0 win. Jeff Paulin looked strong in the net for a second straight game getting his 2nd shutout in the preseason. Mark Goller, Jacob Frommeyer and Dalton Linebach shut down the Colts to help secure the victory. Many Mustang players got in the games and without a roster not sure who all contributed. Coach Goller and staff did a lot of substituting during both games. The Mustangs vs State Champs Dunbar was cancelled due to Thunderstorms. Hopefully the Mustangs will get payback on their road to the State Championship later this year. The Mustangs next preseason match will be August 7th when they travel to Ohio to take on former Mustang, Tony Ripbergerís Madeira Mustangs squad.
|This Most Recent Israli/Palastinian War Bringing Back Some Tough Memories|
| Normally war, with the exception of the Vietnam Conflict back in 1967 which I had a secondary role in while in the Army, doesn't concern me. I don't always understand the whys and wherefores of who is fighting and exactly what they are fighting over, and am smart enough to realize that I have no control over it.
Back in 2009 I had the distinct privilege of visiting Rome, Greece, Turkey, Egypt, Israel and Palastine. There were no hostilities ongoing at the time and we tourists were free to visit the Via Dolarosa, the Western Wall, Bethlehem, go see the pyramids and travel downtown Cairo, Egypt.
The major conflict that has my attention is that which is taking place in Isreal where yesterday it was reported that peace truce had broken down and open hostilities were again underway, with over 1,000 casualites being inflicted - mostly civilians and children. It's the "civilians and children" piece that concerns me. I can put a face on those people. I came in contact with a group of Israeli kids while walking the Via Dolarosa (Way of the Cross), me being the American tourist and they coming home from school. They were fascinated by me, because I was fat. There are no fat Israeli Jews and I was somewhat of a novelty to those kids. I also saw the women, dressed in full Israeli garb walking the streets, living their lives. We were escorted by Israeli police, armed with Usis, but never ever felt threatened. In our travels skirted the West Bank, and visited Palastine where much of the shelling is taking place.
While looking at photos of the casualties/fatalaties, it is those same (type) kids and women, who are among the injured and dead, and the same (type) police tending to the injured and dead. Obviously, tourism has come to a screeching halt, and American jets are not even landing in Tel Aviv. Egypt lost the advantage of our visits a few years back when they overthrew the president and engaged in a civil war.
I now realize just how fortunate I was to be able to squeeze into thier window of peace and experience the things that I did. War in this day and age, especially that war involving civilians and children seems so barbaric in this day and age, yet rages on, and has for centuries, and probably will for centuries more. I also appreciate the security of the US, where I can sleep at night without the worry of being consumed by missile or mortar fire - at least for now.
On Sunday Pope Francis broke down while giving his Sunday noon address in St. Peter's Square, sobbing, "Stop, Please Stop!!!" I echo those sentiments.
