New Hampshire prison softball league connects Episcopalians and inmates in…

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Rector Washington, DC Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Press Release Service The Diocese of New Hampshire softball team poses for a photo July 16 outside the state’s Correctional Facility for Women in Concord before the team’s final game of the season in a league with a prison team. The league’s coordinator, Dan Forbes, is on the left, and standing next to him is Bishop Robert Hirschfeld. Photo: Dave Deziel/Diocese of New Hampshire[Episcopal News Service] Episcopalians may be familiar with Jesus’ assurance that “where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.” Members of St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church in Goffstown, New Hampshire, also know this: Two or three, however devout, are not enough to field a softball team.Whether they bring two, three or a full squad of nine or more players, the Episcopal softball team led by St. Matthew’s parishioner Benge Ambrogi gathers several times each summer in Jesus’ name to play against inmates at the state’s prison for women in Concord. If the visiting team is short on players, the prison team is big enough to provide a few substitutes.“It’s a ministry of presence. It’s a ministry of companionship,” said Ambrogi, who also works for the Diocese of New Hampshire as chief operating officer and canon for mission resources.He told Episcopal News Service in a phone interview that the players keep the conversation lighthearted, and the games are well attended by fans – fellow prisoners who are able and available to come watch. A recent game drew about 50 inmate players and fans, at a prison that typically holds between 100 and 200 inmates. “It’s a big social event for the crowd there,” Ambrogi said.Ambrogi coaches two teams: one from St. Matthew’s and one whose players come from around the diocese, which is based in Concord. Each team plays two games at the prison, officially known as the New Hampshire Correctional Facility for Women. The games are part of a larger league that includes four secular teams, including one from the local prosecutor’s office.The New Hampshire women’s prison team, shown in a 2013 Concord NH Patch photo, played at a detention facility in Goffstown before moving in 2018 to a new prison in Concord. Photo: Tony Schinella/Concord NH PatchSt. Matthew’s has been involved since the league started in 2002. Back then, female prisoners were held at a facility in Goffstown, near St. Matthew’s, and parishioner Barbara Carbonneau coached the congregation’s team. She handed the reins over to Ambrogi a few years ago but still plays. When she turned 83 on July 11, the inmates joined in singing “Happy Birthday” to her on the field.“They have fun when they’re out there, and we enjoy being there,” Carbonneau told ENS. “It’s just a good time, and it’s a good way to [encourage] Christian fellowship.”Carbonneau picked up the nickname “Barbed Wire” a few years ago, and the prisoners have an unofficial rule on their team: No one is allowed to get Barb out.Dan Forbes, a social work professor at Saint Anselm College in Manchester, organizes the league and serves as volunteer coach of the prisoners’ team. He said in an interview with ENS that the prison team’s pitcher once made the mistake of fielding a ball and throwing Carbonneau out at first.“My own team booed my pitcher for doing it,” he said.New Hampshire Bishop Robert Hirschfeld has been known to step into the lineup on the diocesan team, as he did July 16 at the team’s season finale. Hirschfeld’s predecessor, Bishop Gene Robinson, devoted a five-page chapter in his 2008 memoir to describing his ministry among the women of the prison, including participation in their softball games.“Let me tell you, these women play softball! It’s as close to a near-death experience as I ever hope to have. I fell over my own feet a few times and left the scene dirty and bloody. But I also fell in love with these women,” Robinson wrote in his book, “In the Eye of the Storm.”Prison softball looks just like regular softball. The field resembles other ballfields, except the outfield fence is topped with razor wire. The prison provides the equipment. Visiting teams are allowed to bring in only their gloves, hats and sunglasses. All other personal items are left with the guards before passing through security.After walking through a series of secured doors, the visiting team ends up on the recreational yard, which includes the ballfield. The prisoners join them, and the teams spend 10 to 15 minutes warming up, Ambrogi said. Team colors have changed over the years, with the prisoners going from purple to now red. The Episcopal team’s shirts now are blue.The blue shirts also feature the team’s motto: “Safe at Home With God.”The visitors bat first. A prisoner who Ambrogi guesses is in her 60s serves as the official scorekeeper. There are some familiar faces year after year; other prisoners are released before making it to their second season.Conversations between the visitors and the prisoners focus mainly on the game, sometimes including the weather. While other Episcopal ministries offer pastoral support for prisoners, that is not the purpose of the softball games, Ambrogi said.“It’s more of a friendly ministry,” he said. It also gives his players a brief opportunity to get to know the prisoners. “I don’t think that the everyday Joe in our churches has a lot of exposure to people that are incarcerated, and we might have a different perception of the type of people they are.”In fundamental ways, Ambrogi said, they aren’t much different from the Episcopal players.As for athletics, the inmates reveal themselves to be softball players who have had ample time to practice. “They play hard. They’re really good,” Ambrogi said before recounting a tough recent loss, 24-23, to the prisoner team.The games are played in the evening and last up to two hours. There are no strikeouts. Home runs are common, but the coaches advise against them. Too many home runs over the razor-wire fences and the teams won’t have any balls left to play with, Forbes said.Forbes, at 65, has many years of experience both supporting the prison – he once served on its advisory board – and coaching softball. As with the teams he used to coach when his daughters played the game, his prison team ends its games by lining up opposite their visiting opponents for hand slaps and expressions of sportsmanship.“Softball is life,” he said, explaining that the sport can teach lessons in teamwork, patience and relationship building.One prisoner told him she wanted to learn the game so she could play catch with her son once she got out. Another had no interest in the game but joined the team just because it was her only way to get time outside in the recreation yard. Prison life can be “soul-suckingly boring,” Forbes said.Because of inmate classifications, no one convicted of violent crimes is out on the field during the games, Forbes said, but he rejects arguments that such activities, for any inmate, are inappropriate in a setting intended as punishment for a crime. Those critics are seeing prisoners “strictly from an ideological point of view – a distorted belief system,” he said.Many of the inmates he coaches are struggling to turn their lives around after years of trauma on the outside, he said, and nearly all of them someday will become former inmates. For them to succeed when they return to the world outside, they need to learn how to build positive relationships, Forbes said.The softball games help.“The women understand that the community doesn’t reject them,” he said. “The [civilian] players understand that these women are not horrible people. It just really changes up how people feel about other people.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Morgan Stoddart finishes another great Scarlets team try

first_imgSunday Oct 17, 2010 Morgan Stoddart finishes another great Scarlets team try Scarlets went down to a heavy defeat against the Leicester Tigers in the Heineken Cup earlier today at Welford Road. Despite the 46-10 loss though, they did manage to score another great try for the second week running.It’s perhaps a bit strange singing the praises of a try that was scored before taking a 46 point hiding, but on it’s own it was a great effort and they spread the ball and stayed in support for a number of pinpoint passes to go to hand. Last week it was Rhys Priestland, this time it was Morgan Stoddart who got on the end of the flowing team move.After the first half it was all Leicester though, who scored some great tries of their own. Matt Smith, Martin Castrogiovanni, Ben Youngs, Thomas Waldrom, and Tom Croft all scored tries as they pulled away from the Welsh region. Croft scored twice himself.Toby Flood did the rest with two penalties and five conversions as the home side put themselves about the park, featuring some clinical play from scrumhalf Youngs, and a few trademark charges from powerful wing Alesana Tuilagi.Some of the other tries from the game will be posted in this rounds Best Tries compilation sometime during the week.

The Wallabies snatch dramatic win over Wales at the death

first_imgWednesday Jun 20, 2012 The Wallabies snatch dramatic win over Wales at the death Wallaby replacement back Mike Harris came on and kicked a penalty with time up to give Australia a dramatic 25-23 win over Wales in the second Test in Melbourne. Despite Wales coming close this time, the Wallabies have secured the series 2-0. Harris came on for Berrick Barnes, who had been having a great game and kicking well. A problem with his hip meant he went off in the final ten minutes, making way for Harris, who this season has been one of the best kickers in Super Rugby.When the penalty came, he stepped up and cooley slotted it, breaking the hearts of the Welsh after they looked like claiming their first win over the Wallabies in Australia in 42 years.“It’s every player’s dream, to win the match with the final kick,” said Harries. “It was awesome and I am really glad it went over and we got a different result to Scotland.”Harries got his chance after Welsh number ten Rhys Priestland had kicked possesion away with roughly a minute left in the match, a decision that the forwards weren’t happy about.“I remember hearing Ryan Jones shouting ‘no’ at the top of his voice. It wasn’t what the forwards were planning,” said Sam Warburton. “I can understand why the backs might have wanted to kick it but from a forward’s point of view I would have wanted to back our contact skills and keep the ball.”Wales will get another opportunity for a win in the third Test, in Sydney.“Wales are a very good side. They give you nothing and they take their scoring chances. They showed that in the Six Nations and they showed it again last weekend,” said Robbie Deans.“While they can no longer win the series, they can still achieve something only one other Welsh team has ever achieved by winning in Australia. And they have that opportunity in front of them with no real downside – nothing to fear so to speak, as the series is beyond them,” he said.Kurtley Beale will make his return to Wallaby colours, despite the 23 year-old facing a police charge for assault. He missed the first two games with a shoulder injury, but during that time got involved in a scuffle with security guards at a pub in Brisbane.He will start at fullback, while Adam Ashley-Cooper moves to the wing to replace Cooper Vuna.Below are highlights of the game, and you can also watch the whole thing again hereADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

As oil companies destroy Houston, community challenges Valero

first_imgIn Houston, a city choked by oil refineries and regulatory capture, people are fighting back against one of the largest contributors to the climate crisis. Regulatory capture is when a regulatory agency, founded to advance the public interest, instead promotes the commercial or political aims of the industry it is supposed to regulate. This struggle has many obstacles. Oil corporations have stacked the bureaucratic deck in regulatory bodies like the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. When companies violate laws, putting the public in harm’s way, the worst they face is a fine from the TCEQ — and that happens less than 10 percent of the time. Austin, Texas protest, 2011Not only are multibillion-dollar oil companies causing serious health issues and even premature death for people living near their plants, they now contribute to the substantial increase in the number and strength of hurricanes that have destroyed cities and displaced many. Houston is particularly positioned in this struggle. The largest city in the U.S. by area, around 640 square miles; it is the fourth largest U.S. city by population. Houston is connected by massive and ever-expanding highway systems due to a rapidly increasing driving population in a city with meager public transportation. Houston’s latest highway expansion will increase the number of already hundreds of thousands of cars on the road, causing more air pollution. Pollution has been shown to affect primarily working-class communities of color, while highways have destroyed homes and schools and displaced people in historic Black freedmen’s towns like Independence Heights.Pollutants flood oppressed communitiesThe Houston Chronicle reported Oct. 24 that pollution after Tropical Depression Imelda, which brought 40 inches of rain in 72 hours, was particularly gnarly, although after any flood the petrochemical plants pollute with little to no consequence. “Initially, about a dozen facilities reported unauthorized releases from Sept. 18 through 21, triggered by electrical outages, the failure of floating roof tanks and equipment malfunctions caused by flooding from the storm. … Together, these companies concentrated in Harris, Jefferson and Brazoria counties reported releasing toxins, including cancer-causing 1,3 Butadiene, benzene and ethylene oxide.” These chemicals are not safe for humans at any levels, but the companies have yet to provide any response to the people affected by them.Oil executives and shareholders reside in Houston’s west and north sides. Most of the refineries are in the east end of Harris County, near the Houston Ship Channel. According to the Texas Environmental Justice Advocacy Services, the community directly in harm’s way includes “a dense and significant population of people of color, particularly Latinx, and low-income residents, as well as large numbers of community members who face increased vulnerability to health effects from air pollution due to their young or old age. Community confronts ValeroOn Oct. 8, the TCEQ held a public hearing about Valero’s operating permit renewal number 1381, which would allow the continued release of highly toxic hydrogen cyanide at Valero Refining-Texas, L.P. in Houston’s Manchester community. The hearing was at the community center across the street from the plant. One of the first to speak during the question and answer session, Manchester resident Armando Hernandez asked the panel of Valero and TCEQ representatives why his brother, father and friends have all gotten sick and died. He stated that Manchester residents were people, “not laboratory rats.” The panel and room were silent after his plea for help. A teacher at nearby Furr High School, Sandra Palacios, brought dozens of her students and all their research with them to confront the panel and hold them accountable. Palacios pointed out that the permit application was incomplete — and that high school researchers are held to a higher standard than Valero. She also mentioned that the bilingual outreach for the public hearing consisted of a tiny ad in the local Spanish newspaper with an incorrect date. Palacios’ students followed their teacher’s lead, catching Valero representatives in at least one lie over a mistake in their paper: Valero’s lead community relations specialist Michael Walter and Valero attorney Arnoldo Medina contradicted one another. A senior student, identified as Ms. Cabrera, called out Valero for not using its $93.9 billion in annual profits to have accurate frontline detectors and better means of rapidly communicating with the majority Latinx community in case of emission events. Cabrera listed the harmful and fatal effects of multiple chemicals Valero’s plant releases regularly and warned that this was just the beginning of her and her community’s fight against both Valero and the TCEQ. She saw clearly that this struggle is not a contained one, as “air spreads out” and affects everyone — although locals feel it most acutely.Not only do oil corporations like Valero, Exxon, Shell and many others owe reparations to the Houston residents they are poisoning and lying to, they owe reparations to climate refugees displaced by a climate crisis that is only heating up.  These egregious crimes against humanity are steeped in oil and blood.Also heating up is the anger of oppressed peoples, who know what they are facing is unjust and fatal. But the struggle to do more than survive is a powerful one, generating the need for a new future free from fossil fuel production.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
