By Dialogo January 01, 2012 Marine leaders from Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, Uruguay and the United States participated in the 2011 MLAC. Leaders agree that this type of collaboration is key for security cooperation. Brigadier General Héctor Julio Pachon Cañón, commandant of the Colombian Marine Corps, told Diálogo that during the MLAC conferences “joint and combined strategies are designed and integrated to combat transnational crimes that affect the entire hemisphere.” General James Amos, commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps, told Diálogo, “Standing alone, none of us has all the answers to these complex challenges, but together we can combine our unique experiences for the mutual benefit of all.” The 2011 MLAC also addressed common security threats, such as narcotrafficking in the region, which extends beyond producer countries to the entire region, taking the form of violence and shadow economies that undermine economic growth. “We all agree that narcotrafficking is simply a threat that does not respect borders,” Peruvian Admiral Luis Ramos Vargas said. “It [narcotrafficking] does not limit itself to Peru, Colombia and Bolivia; all of the countries in the region end up becoming transit countries, places where the drugs are stashed in order to then be transported to Europe, the United States and Asia.” More than 5.7 million people in the Western Hemisphere are affected by natural disasters each year. Within the region that encompasses the Caribbean, Central America and South America, approximately three-quarters of the population are estimated to live in at-risk areas for health disasters, and one-third lives in areas highly exposed to hazards such as earthquakes and landslides. Adding to these threats, each country within the region also faces the impact of narcotrafficking. These dangers call for Marine Corps assistance that, at times, involves several countries’ forces working together. Integrating multiple Marine Corps units to confront these diverse challenges cannot take place for the first time after a disaster or in the midst of a hunt for a narcotrafficking group. That is why the region’s Marine Corps have regular meetings at all levels to collaborate on sharing information and training. Marine Leaders Meet Marines have a long history of working and training together to mitigate natural disaster conditions and the threat of narcotrafficking in the region. Since 2001, top-ranking Marine leaders have gathered every two years for the Marine Leaders of America Conference (MLAC), a relationship-building forum in which commandants discuss issues of common regional concern. During the last MLAC, held August 29 to September 2, 2011, in Lima, Peru, Marines discussed techniques and lessons learned from peacekeeping operations, humanitarian aid and disaster relief operations. Although regional Marine Corps have varying missions, the qualities inherent in Marine units assist greatly in providing security and augmenting the forces of the counterdrug authorities in the region. “The Marine Corps are very flexible units for their capability to deploy quickly, and can be a very useful tool for states,” said Captain Gerardo Priguetti, commandant of the Uruguayan Marine Corps. In Colombia’s case, working alongside other components of the National Navy, “[Marine Corps units] shows tangible results such as the interdiction of great quantities of liquid and chemical compounds used for the production of cocaine, as well as the confiscation of several tons of cocaine hydrochloride ready to be imported to other countries,” said Brig. Gen. Pachon Cañón. “This [conference] allows us to see, to open our minds to the realities of other Marine Corps,” said Capt. Priguetti. “These meetings allow us to help and to see different viewpoints to common problems.” Across Ranks Marines across Central America, South America and the Caribbean are going a step further, by also having a meeting among the senior enlisted leaders to consolidate their efforts against these security threats. Marine Corps senior enlisted leaders representing Chile, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and the United States met for the first time ever from April 4–7, 2011, at the Senior Enlisted Marine Leaders of the Americas Conference (SEMLAC) at the Círculo de Suboficiales military base in Bogotá, Colombia. SEMLAC is set to become a regular event, conducted at various locations throughout Central and South America, to forge strong relationships working toward regional security. The event was co-hosted by the Marine Corps of Colombia and the U.S. to provide senior enlisted leaders a forum to discuss regional security cooperation and training against the region’s threats. The meetings of Marine Corps leaders have provided multiple benefits in military collaboration: Professional exchanges among naval infantry forces in the region have increased, Marine Corps training programs have improved as a result of the collective lessons learned, and the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) has received enhanced naval infantry support.

Young Sidney Rice was very impressive for the Vikings as he gave William Gay fits, grabbing 11 passes for 136 yards.The Steelers go into the bye week with a 5-2 record and will have extra time to prepare for the undefeated Denver Broncos. They would probably love to hand another undefeated team their first defeat, plus if they are undefeated when they face the Steelers, that will mean that they will have beaten rival Baltimore, taking them out of the title hunt. At 3-3, the Ravens desperately need the win to stay within striking distance of the Steelers and Bengals.The Bengals will also enjoy a bye week after destroying the Chicago Bears in one of the most impressive games of the season. They put it all together, offensively, defensively and special teams. Carson Palmer was flawless as he went 20 of 24 for 233 yards and five touchdowns. Two went to Chad Ochocinco who gathered in 10 catches for 118 yards while Cedric Benson kept the defense honest, compiling 189 yards on 37 carries, moving him back into first place in rushing yardage. The defense held Matt Forte to just 24 yards on the ground and forced Jay Cutler to the air 37 times, completing 26 for 251 yards. Barring a major injury, this team looks very impressive, they can beat you on the ground, in the air and defensively. The Steelers are going to have their hands full when they meet again at Heinz Field. The pressure will also be on the Steelers to continue to win because it’s going to take an exceptionally good team to beat the Bengals, if they continue to play the way they have in the first half of the season. Behind the two fourth quarter touchdowns by the defensive unit, a 77-yard fumble recovery by LaMarr Woodley and an 82-yard interception touchdown by Keyaron Fox, to secure a 27-17 victory, the Steelers (5-2) were able to keep place with the surprising Cincinnati Bengals (5-2) who embarrassed the Chicago Bears 45-10. The Steelers defense took matters into their own hands Sunday in the fourth quarter, not waiting for the sporadic offense. And even though the special teams tried to give it away they responded again with their second touchdown to remove the Minnesota Vikings from the ranks of the undefeated, while making a statement to the rest of the NFL that they are still the best in the game. TEXTBOOK TACKLE— Steelers linebacker James Farrior makes a textbook tackle on Vikings tight end Visanthe Shiancoe. GAME CLINCHER— Steelers linebacker Keyaron Fox is off to the end zone for a 82-yard interception return with one minute left in the game to clinch the win over the Vikings. FUMBLE RETURN— LaMarr Woodley of the Steelers picks up a fumble in front of the Vikings Brett Favre and returns it 77 yards for a touchdown in the fourth quarter. Fox also made a great play on the special teams before that series stopping Harvin in his tracks on a kickoff return, making sure he didn’t repeat his previous feat. The defense, headed by the linebackers, was outstanding throughout the game, bending, but not breaking, while holding one of the most potent offenses in the league in check. On the offensive side of the ball Ben Roethlisberger had a subpar game, completing just 14 of 26 passes for 175 yards while Rashard Mendenhall matched Peterson with 69 yards on just 10 carries. Hines Ward entered the game leading the league in receptions and yardage, but only caught one pass for three yards dropping him well behind the leaders in that race. Roethlisberger totally ignored him, going to Heath Miller six times for 38 yards, Santonio Holmes, two for 59 yards and Wallace three for 72 yards. The rushing game wasn’t much better, even though Mendenhall did look impressive at times. Willie Parker carried the ball once for two yards and Mewelde Moore four times for 14. OUT OF BOUNDS— The Vikings Benny Sapp applies a late hit to Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Sapp was penalized for the infraction. The defense shut down the best player in football, Adrian Peterson, holding him to 69 yards on 18 carries and forcing Brett Favre to put the ball in the air 57 times, completing 34 for 334 yards while allowing just 10 points. But a sporadic offense and poor special teams kept the Vikings close. After Woodley scored the first touchdown in the fourth quarter to seal the game, they thought, the special teams gave up an 88-yard kickoff return by Percy Harvin, that pulled the Vikings back to within a field goal, 20-17, a three and out by the offense put Favre and company back on the field to pull out the victory like they had done so many games this season on their way to a 6-0 record. But the defense once again would have none of that as Dick LeBeau’s men put constant pressure on Favre, stopped Peterson cold and stuck like glue to the wide receivers. Then came the big play, Favre hit his receiver Chester Taylor, but the ball bounced off his hands into the air and Fox, subbing for the injured Lawrence Timmons at linebacker, grabbed it out of the air and behind a special escort from his teammates, ran it into the end zone, giving the defense 14 points in the fourth quarter. This has been the dead zone for the Steelers this season, they have done nothing in the fourth quarter until this game. The Cleveland Browns continue to be one of the worst teams in the NFL as they fell to the Green Bay Packers, 31-3. Derek Anderson was 12 of 29 for 99 yards, while Aaron Rodgers picked the Browns defense apart, going 15 of 20 for 246 yards and three touchdowns, with Ryan Grant picking up 148 yards on the ground. Cleveland will face the Bears this week.
By John BurtonFAIR HAVEN – A long operating independent insurance agency has continued growing with its acquisition of a Somerville agency.Boynton and Boynton, which has its main offices at 21 Cedar Ave., recently acquired another independent agency, the Genova firm, located in Somerville.It is the second acquisition and third expansion the firm has undertaken in the last two years.The state’s Department of Banking and Insurance’s Division of Insurance has approved the acquisition, which will operate as the Genova Insurance Agency, according to Boynton and Boynton.The Genova firm was established in 1967 by the father of Tom Genova, Anne Marie McDonough and Linda Casey, who now operate the location. The firm has specialized in personal insurance products, such as homeowners, auto, flood, as well as commercial and insurance coverage.The joining of the two will allow Boynton to provide additional depth of services for the firm’s clients, according to Jay Lynch, Boynton’s president and chief executive officer.“I am confident that the addition of the Boynton-Genova Agency will allow us to continue our growth in commercial and personal markets,” he said.“We’re always looking for opportunities to expand our presence,” said David Boynton, operations manager.“We always liked the Somerville area and, when this opportunity came up, we wanted to do everything we could to make it happen,” David Lynch said. “It just made sense for both firms.”McDonough said she believed the two firms’ histories and efforts would complement each other. “I believe together we have a bright future,” she said.“It helps us out on our end by being part of a bigger agency. We now have access to more markets,” McDonough said.As for Boynton, she said, “They now have a presence in this county. So it’s a good thing all around.”Boynton and Boynton has had a long history in the Two River area, beginning in 1930. The firm’s staff has grown to nearly 93 in its three locations with the recent acquisition.Before this move, the company’s largest acquisition was a West Conshohocken, Pa. firm, located just outside Philadelphia, that specializes in medical malpractice, according to David Boynton.
Story by Jenna Moldaver • Photos by Patrick Olivero |RED BANK – The streets of downtown Red Bank were alive and bustling early Saturday morning for the inaugural Red Bank Classic 5k, which drew about 1,000 runners and their supporters to the downtown.Among the participants were Gov. Phil Murphy and First Lady Tammy Murphy of Middletown, who surprised many in the crowd when they showed up in sneakers to run the race together.The event was hosted by the Red Bank Business Alliance and Red Bank RiverCenter. It raised about $20,000 for the Red Bank YMCA and the borough parks and recreation department.“A bunch of businesses and the Red Bank community got together and we decided we needed a community event like this and to bring a race back to town,” said organizer Angela Courtney, a member of the Business Alliance. “It just organically happened and it grew into this amazing event. We expected 500 people and got over a thousand.”While runners and their supporters gathered on Broad Street, local businesses showcased their products and services in Marine Park. Kitch Organic, Jersey Shore, Evolution Acupuncture and more set out pamphlets and samples under tents throughout the park. While the main action of the day took place a few blocks away, Marine Park was a site of relaxation, offering foot massages, paddle boarding and yoga for runners and community members to enjoy.A pre-race warmup offered by fitness professionals Mike Rodgers Jr. and Elizabeth Murphy guided the runners in stretches, offering motivational words as the race start neared.On each side of the throng of runners, supporters watched from sidewalks, taking pictures, cheering and holding signs like those of Red Bank residents Wallace and Messiah Woods, a father and son who made signs reading “Run Honey Run” and “My Mom is # Run.”Runners came in every variety: experienced, first-timers, solo and in groups. They ranged from under 14 to over 75. There was a special fun run for the younger set.The overall winners were Ean Jaffe, 17, of Holmdel (0:17:18.0), Kerry O’Brien, 34, of Belford (0:17:22.7), Anthony Scamardella, 19, of Red Bank (0:17:45.3), Sean Rath, 34, of Atlantic Highlands (0:18:20.3) and Abraham Calderon, 15, of South Amboy (0:18:36.2).The Murphys finished at 27:06, placing them in the top 25 percent of finishers.Of the 31 teams that competed, the top finishers were Sweetest Sins, Orangetheory Fitness, Shrewsbury First Assembly of God, Red Bank Eye and CrossFit TreeHouse II.More than 30 runners represented Red Bank Eye. The group of colleagues and customers donned team T-shirts with their enthusiasm. “Almost the entire office is out here,” said Eatontown resident Tom Sasso. All of the results have been posted and can be found at redbankclassic.com.The event brought together families, friends and the community at large, a feat Red Bank Mayor Pasquale Menna described as the primary goal of the race. He likened the lively event to his experience growing up with a particularly strong sense of community in Italy.“I was born and raised in Italy and I remember as a kid, everybody would meet in the piazza, the square, to eat or drink,” Menna said. “People would just walk around, meet their neighbors, talk, and it was a lively place. In a lot of respects, Red Bank is a little bit like that because we do have a very safe, active downtown and what you do see a lot is that it brings a focus on community.”Menna said this race, the first road race in Red Bank since the long-running George Sheehan Classic ended in 2015, is an important step in revitalizing this focus. He said he believes these types of events are essential in uniting a community.“All of a sudden, you realize that we’re really this small world and somebody who’s a different color, somebody who’s got a different faith, somebody who acts differently than you, they’re really just people,” he said. “They’re humans just like we are. It’s just a matter of mingling.”Throughout the morning, this community spirit pervaded moments both big and small: a woman extended her hand to her husband so they could cross the finish line together; a father pushed his infant son in a stroller for the entire 3.1 mile course; friends discussed the plight of uphill treks and unforgiving leg cramps as they reveled in post-race glory over bagels in Marine Park.From the volunteers handing out water bottles to the triumphant friends posing with medals at the finish line, Red Bank beamed with community pride.Road races may have taken a hiatus in the town, but community members tied up their laces once again without missing a step.This article first appeared in the June 21 – 28, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.
The Kootenay Ice had a Greater Vancouver Canadians squad that was primed for allowing two points to slip away.However, the Canadians played just well enough to sweep the two game BC Hockey Major Midget League series this past weekend in Castlegar.Greater Van defeated the Ice 3-1 Saturday and 4-2 Sunday. Kootenay took a 1-0 lead in the opener on a goal by Aiden Browell of Fruitvale.However, Greater Van tied the game before the period ended then scored twice to secure the win in the third frame.Sunday, Kootenay twice let one-goal leads slip away before the Canadians scored three times in the third to steal the win.Kadrian Klimchuk and Shawn Campbell, both of Castlegar, scored in the first and second periods, respectively.Four different scorers replied for Greater Van.Burk Solomon of Castlegar and Jason Mailhiot of Trail were in goal for Kootenay.Kootenay, dropping to 4-20-4, returns to action this weekend with a pair of games against Okanagan Rockets Saturday, 5:45 p.m., and Sunday, 9 a.m., at the NDCC Arena.
In the final game Saturday, Van Kozak provided steady play for the Chill to lead the Kootenay squad to a narrow 40-36 win over DiPP Basketball academy from Kelowna.Once again, the Chill got off to a quick start going up 16 points in the first half before the DiPP squad made a comeback late in the second half.Pulling within two points, DiPP put fullcourt pressure on the Chill who easily broke the man-to-man coverage and converted on easy transition.The win allowed Kootenay to capture the Co-Tournament Championship.Kootenay is back on the road this weekend, travelling to Kelowna to compete in the Kelowna Minor Basketball Association tournament.Chill U13 squad finish with 1-2 markKootenay Chill U13 Club team coached by Mike Nagle finished the Pro-Hops tournament with a 1-2 record.This was the first sanctioned tournament for many of the players.“The coaching staff and parents were very proud of the squad and the experience gained,” Phelan said.First game the Chill played the U12 DiPP Academy of Kelowna. After going up by 10 points in the first half, the Chill’s shooting cooled off and ended up dropping a hard-fought game 36-30. Second game the Chill played Pro-Hop U12/U13 of Kamloops and came away with the win, 46-20, with even contributions from the whole team. Third and final game, the Chill were up against a young but talented Kamloops Hoops team. The game was back and forth for much of the first half with each team taking leads, until the Kamloops Hoops squad implemented full court pressure.The inexperienced Chill had trouble getting the ball up the court with turnovers leading to layups in transition. In the end the Chill dropped the game 58-39. The Kootenay Chill Club Basketball Team continues its impressive run on the hardwood after finishing 3-0 at the Pro-Hops Spring Tournament this past weekend in Kamloops.The Chill, consisting of players from the Trafalgar Thunder High School program, posted wins against opposition from host Kamloops, Gibsons from the Sunshine Coast and Kelowna.Club basketball is played outside the high school season, allowing players and coaches to gain more experience in preparation for the next season beginning in the fall.Travelling with only eight players, the Chill gained some revenge on a Pro-Hops team from Kamloops that posted a 19-point earlier in the season by winning 56-26.“After preparing all week to play what we thought was going to be the same team Friday night at the Tournament Capital Centre (TCC), we played their U14 team and dominated start to finish,” said Chill coach Jeremy Phelan.Kelton Forte paced the Chill attack and was named Kootenay player-of-the-game.Second game Saturday morning, Kootenay overcame a strong pressure defence to defeat Gibsons 48-39.“After going up 16 points in the first half, SCBC made a comeback to tie the game at 32-32 late in the second half,” Phelan explained.“However, we ended up breaking their press and scoring easy baskets en route to the win.”Phelan said Mateo Katoaka and Nathaniel Pan earned player-of-the-game honours for Kootenay.
