Fair to return in October The Pike County Fair is coming to town October 5 through 9 and already excitement is building.Neal Sneed, president of the sponsoring Troy Shrine Club, said club members made the decision to host the fair based on Gov. Kay Ivey’s decision to remove the mask mandate on April 9 and the increasing availability of the coronavirus vaccines and positive indicators. “With the recent good weather, rentals at the Pike County Fairgrounds have been increasing. We had 17 rentals last weekend and 14 the week before,” said Kathy Sneed, club secretary. “Many people have been asking about the fair, hoping that it’s coming.  The Troy Shriners are excited and we are getting ready to go.”last_img read more

Letting religion in

first_imgWhen you see the word “veritas” standing alone, you likely think of Harvard. You probably even know that the word is Latin for truth. But what you may not know is that the University’s motto has decidedly religious origins.The word is a key to the Latin saying “Veritas Christo et Ecclesiae,” or “Truth for Christ and the Church,” Harvard’s original motto before it was shortened.With a nod to that venerable religious tradition, the Veritas Forum, a nonprofit founded at Harvard by a group of students, faculty, and ministers in 1992 to explore “life’s big questions,” asked two renowned political philosophers on Tuesday to discuss the hot topic: “Does religion have a role in public life?”Harvard’s justice guru Michael Sandel and Jean Bethke Elshtain of the University of Chicago Divinity School explored how the teachings of myriad faiths can help inform civic discourse.In his remarks, Sandel suggested that a public discourse that disregards moral and religious convictions is “a mistake.” Ignoring such input, said the Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Professor of Government, means we “cut ourselves off from a range of considerations that ought to matter in the way we govern our lives together.”Critics of the notion of a firm separation of church and state, he said, miss the point. “One of the strongest arguments for the separation of church and state is precisely to allow free scope for pluralist argument and engagement from all traditions — secular and faith traditions — in politics.”While welcoming competing voices and opinions encourages a “clamorous and contentious” debate, it also encourages a “morally more robust one than the kind we have become accustomed to,” said Sandel. “Rather than aspire to a toleration of avoidance,” he added, “we should aspire to a pluralism of engagement about hard moral, spiritual, and religious questions.”Sandel, whose most recent book is “What Money Can’t Buy: The Moral Limits of Markets,” offered the nation’s widening income gap as sobering proof of the need to include the “habits and attitudes and virtues that often find articulation and expression in various faith traditions.”He fears that those who are well off increasingly accept the assumption that they alone possess the talents and gifts that society values, and therefore they alone deserve the rewards. “That leads to a warped attitude toward one’s own success,” he said, “that is corrosive and overreaching.”“It’s the idea that merit, success, money, and wealth is the crowning virtue, that ‘I earned it, and therefore it’s mine,’ rather than being alive to the sense in which ‘I am the bearer of gifts that are not my own doing, and much of my good fortune may be thanks to that.’ And that … can support a notion of solidarity that is harder and harder to come by.”Elshtain, who was raised in the Christian tradition, said she “joined the community of those who chided those who believed,” while she was in college. She became a Deist while studying the Enlightenment. Ultimately, she realized that “much of what I thought I had rejected lived on and burst forth” in her writings, but also in her broader understanding of the world.Religious teachings, modes of thought “that helped shape the world,” should always be incorporated by wise political thinkers, said Elshtain, the author of several books, including “Sovereignty: God, State, and Self.”“In the West, one of those formative, formative movements and ways of being in the world is, of course, Christianity. We omit or forget this at our peril … we lose contact with the sources and the forces that have, for better or worse, made us who we are as persons and as a complex, diverse culture.”What’s needed to foster productive civic discourse, suggested Elshtain, is a type of toleration that recognizes the importance and validity of other forms of religious thought.  She offered the comments of Pope John Paul II during a visit to Kazakhstan in 2001 as an example of “an eloquent defense of toleration.”“When, in a society, citizens accept one another …  in their respective religious beliefs, it is easier to foster among them recognition of other human rights, and an understanding of the values on which a peaceful and productive coexistence may be based,” the pope said. “In fact, they feel a common bond in the awareness that they are brothers and sisters because they are children of the one God.”last_img read more

CUs committed to DEI, concerned with ‘one-size-fits-all’ proposals

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr The credit union system has a shared commitment to advancing diversity and inclusion, but has concerns about proposals that would require employment diversity data from all institutions regardless of size, CUNA wrote to the House Financial Services Subcommittee on diversity and inclusion Wednesday. The subcommittee conducted a hearing discussing diversity and inclusion (DEI) accountability at large banks.The House Financial Services Committee also released a report in conjunction with the hearing that evaluates bank and savings and loans holding companies with more than $50 billion in assets. However, CUNA is concerned that the legislative recommendations and proposed bills stemming from the report would apply to all financial institutions regardless of their size.“While the Committee has fashioned its data reporting, public disclosure, and board diversity requirements based on an assessment of the practices and resources of institutions with $50 billion or more in assets, credit unions have an average of $286 million in assets by comparison,” the letter reads. “Currently, the median number of assets under a credit union’s management is $35 million. Thus, credit unions have significantly less resources to accomplish diversity and inclusion initiatives than large banks and, accordingly, should not be judged using identical assessment criteria or subjected to identical obligations.” continue reading »last_img read more

ESPN’s Jay Bilas on Jim Boeheim’s suspension: ‘It doesn’t make any sense’

first_img Published on December 3, 2015 at 2:49 pm Contact Matt: [email protected] | @matt_schneidman Facebook Twitter Google+ Jay Bilas has spoken with numerous NCAA administrators and not one can justify Jim Boeheim’s suspension. The Syracuse head coach isn’t allowed to communicate with players or coaches for a full month while he misses nine games. On Thursday, the NCAA announced that Boeheim starts serving the suspension this Saturday at Georgetown instead of the beginning of conference play.“Well it doesn’t make any sense,” Bilas told The Daily Orange on Thursday. “The game suspension is just a shaming device so going further than that strikes me as being unjustifiable.”It’s been nine months since the NCAA first handed down punishments to Syracuse for violations stemming from as far back as 2001. The meat of the violations were basketball and football players being overpaid at the Oneida YMCA, missteps with the university’s drug policy and changing the grade on one of former SU center Fab Melo’s papers.The actual investigation lasted about eight years and Boeheim is just now learning of his final punishment, two days before the suspension kicks in.“This is an incredible waste of time and resources,” Bilas said, “and the punishment was totally disproportionate to the violations.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBilas repeatedly called the ruling an embarrassment for the NCAA. He labeled the organization as the “perfect system of non-accountability for administrators.” The NCAA found Boeheim guilty for a lack of institutional control, deeming him responsible for the happenings at the YMCA, with the drug testing program and in the meeting to change Melo’s grade.Bilas compared Syracuse’s situation to that of a regular classroom: If a non-athlete is accused of academic impropriety, the professor doesn’t get punished. Only the student deals with judicial boards and faces punishment. In this case, Boeheim, who granted, has a more watchful eye over his players than a professor does over their students, shoulders the brunt of the discipline.“So now a coach is going to be responsible for everything that goes on at YMCAs? That makes no sense,” Bilas said, “and the coach is responsible for the complexity of a drug policy? That makes zero sense.”Boeheim was supposed to be in control of everything, per the NCAA, and that’s why he is being punished. Now, he’ll be in control of nothing for 31 days.The NCAA found him unable to promote an atmosphere of compliance, one of several vague terms Bilas sees the NCAA leaning on to dole out punishments without concrete reason.“Atmosphere of compliance, what the hell does that mean?” Bilas said “Like you can spray something or hang up an air freshener and then you’ve got the atmosphere of compliance?”Boeheim doesn’t know how he’ll fill time during the month he can’t have contact with the team. He only has two days to prepare his staff for the 31 days without him. Mike Hopkins will now debut as Syracuse’s interim head coach 25 days sooner than he planned.The NCAA wants to publicly shame coaches, Bilas said, as it’s done with Boeheim. His suspension was moved up from conference play because the NCAA initially “abused its discretion,” which Bilas called a “blistering indictment on the process.” The backlash from him and others that’s resulted after an eight-year investigation finally coming to an end, however, is shifting the fault back on the governing body of college sports.“These are not complex issues of law that you’re dealing with on some sort of federal court or federal court appeals level,” Bilas said. “This is really simple, straightforward stuff and it’s just yet another embarrassment for the NCAA.” Commentscenter_img Related Stories Jim Boeheim: I had no involvement with underlying violations of this caseESPN’s Jay Bilas on Jim Boeheim’s suspension: ‘It doesn’t make any sense’Storify: Social media reacts to NCAA’s decision on Jim Boeheim’s appealRead the full NCAA report on Jim Boeheim’s appealMike Hopkins will coach his 1st game ever on Saturday against Georgetownlast_img read more
