Kudos to library for Jamboree help

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionThe Schenectady County Public Library (SCPL) and Friends of SCPL are iconic institutions in the area’s educational and cultural life. I’m delighted that they are supporting The Reading Is Fun Program (RIF)’s first annual Grand Reading Jamboree, to be held in the historic Proctors Theatre complex, donated for the event, on April 21, noon to 4 p.m. RIF’s many volunteers promote early-childhood literacy by working on foundational reading and conversational skills and vocabulary with especially challenged 4-9-year-olds in pre-K, Kindergarten, and Grades 1-3 in the Schenectady City School District. The Jamboree is keyed to that mission. Friends is funding Nina Crews, a leading children’s-book author of color, to participate in the Jamboree and it’s defraying the cost of two costumed famous children’s-book characters, Cat in the Hat and Thing One and Thing Two. Another outstanding children’s-book author of color, Ty Allan Jackson, is joining Nina Crews at the Jamboree, to resonate with an anticipated large gathering, especially with those from Schenectady’s communities of color SCPL will issue library cards at the Jamboree and organize a book-nook with diverse literacy activities for young children and literacy information for adults.The Jamboree will be for about, and by Schenectady children — about getting and keeping them on the reading track, for all of their lives. In that interest, RIF has arranged for the outstanding Culinary Arts Department at the Steinmetz Career and Learning Academy, an off site part of Schenectady High School, to cater the event, which many children’s books and other items will be gifted to the youngsters.CDTA is donating buses for those needing rides and from the Jamboree.ALVIN MAGIDNiskayunaThe writer is founder and executive director of The Reading Is Fun Program (RIF).

Laudrup wants answers from Swansea

first_img “Chico will be involved in the squad, zero problems whatsoever,” Monk said. “We had a talk today. Things have been blown up and we have had a laugh about it. He is a good man.” The 34-year-old also attempted to play down the upheaval Laudrup’s exit would have on the club between now and the end of the season. “We’re all aware of what has happened this week. It has been a busy period,” Monk said. “I know the club and the players. Nothing here is new to me. We’ve lost players and managers in the past and we’ve dealt with that. “That’s (the) industry we are in. We’re used to those experiences.” Monk admitted the full-time job would be a dream role for him, even if it meant the end of his playing days. “My ultimate aim would be to manage the club, (but) I am not a player-manager. If I am in (the team), I might not be seeing things elsewhere. “If I have played my last game as a player, it would mean I have done well.” Just a year after leading the Swans to League Cup glory – the first major trophy in the club’s history – Laudrup was dismissed on Tuesday following a poor run of form. Veteran defender Garry Monk was named as caretaker boss in the Dane’s stead and, on the same day that he gave his first press conference in the role, Laudrup lifted the lid on his discussions with the League Managers’ Association. “I am deeply disappointed to have been dismissed as manager of Swansea City,” it read. “In particular, the manner in which it happened and the actions the club has taken since notifying me in the briefest of letters which gave no reasons why such hasty and final action was deemed necessary. “I am, of course taking legal advice and the LMA have already written to the club asking for a proper explanation as to why I was summarily dismissed. Three members of my staff have also been dismissed. “The club has informed me that I cannot visit the training ground to say my farewells to the players so I do that now through this statement. “Whilst league results have been disappointing of late, we are still 12th in the table and it is there for all to see the fine margins in the league this season in terms of points that separate 11 clubs.” Monk held his first training session on Wednesday and did his best to fend off some awkward questions from the press 24 hours later. One of those related to defender Chico Flores, who was involved in a training ground bust-up with Monk last month. The club have played down some of the more colourful accounts of the incident and Monk, a Swansea captain in all four divisions, insisted it would have no effect on his team selection. Michael Laudrup has revealed he is taking legal advice over his sacking as Swansea manager after being given “no reasons” for his treatment. Press Associationlast_img read more
