BLOG: Governor Wolf’s Three 2016-17 Budget Priorities

first_img Budget News,  The Blog As we approach the 2016-2017 budget deadline, Governor Wolf has affirmed three priorities that are critical to providing smarter, long term investments in schools, social programs and public safety.Our commonwealth faces a massive deficit and the possibility of compounding future fiscal gaps if we don’t move Pennsylvania in the right direction by balancing our budget with sustainable revenue.Let’s take a closer look at the governor’s three priorities.Education FundingFunding our schools has always been, and continues to be, a top priority for Governor Wolf and his entire administration.As we approach the 2016-17 budget deadline, Gov. Wolf is fighting for a $250 million increase to basic education funding, as well as $30 million for early childhood education, and $30 million for special education.Addiction Treatment FundingGovernor Wolf has spent much of his past three months at roundtables across the commonwealth discussing local and statewide efforts to combat the opioid abuse and heroin use epidemic in Pennsylvania.Governor Wolf proposed $34 million in the 2016-17 budget. This funding would allow the state to draw down approximately $18 million in matching federal funds to implement 50 Centers of Excellence that will treat more than 11,000 people that currently are not able to access treatment.Deficit ReductionIt is a widely-acknowledged fact that a reliance on one-time fixes and delayed payments has led Pennsylvania into a dire financial crisis: a massive deficit that threatens our investment in schools, social programs and public safety.Governor Wolf is working with Republicans and Democrats in the General Assembly and he’s engaged them for their ideas to accomplish this task responsibly.

Ford looks to contribute as 6th man when Syracuse hosts Maryland Eastern Shore

first_imgSyracuse head coach Quentin Hillsman has reiterated the idea that his team has “seven starters.”Seven players play starters’ minutes, and all players on the SU roster play in the game.But Hillsman said that if basketball was a game played six-on-six, he would start sophomore Taylor Ford. The forward has excelled early in the season, taking the reins from the graduated Big East Sixth Man of the Year Carmen Tyson-Thomas.“We’re going to look for her when she’s in the game,” Hillsman said. “She’s a player that’s coming off the bench who should be a starter. Her performance coming off the bench has been tremendous.”On Wednesday night, Ford will look to continue a productive stretch as the Orange (3-0) hosts Maryland Eastern Shore (1-2) at 7 p.m. in the Carrier Dome.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“She’s been rebounding and hitting the open shot,” SU guard Brianna Butler said. “Right now she’s probably one of the best 3-point shooters on our team. She’s knocking down the open shots, she’s playing hard, and she’s doing exactly what coach needs of her and what the team needs of her.”With the graduation of center Kayla Alexander and the transfer of forward Pachis Roberts to Georgia, Ford’s minutes have skyrocketed. The 6-foot forward averaged just five minutes per game last season, yet in SU’s season-opener against Washington State this year, she played 25.In a game where SU took the lead for good with only 47 seconds remaining, Ford shot just 1-of-9 and finished with three points.“I think the first game at Washington State everyone shot bad, so it was one of those things where nobody shot the ball particularly well,” Hillsman said. “But Taylor is very capable of scoring the basketball and very capable of making plays for us.”Ford said the poor performance was due to some first-game jitters and because she rushed her shot.“I’m a pretty good shooter, so if I take my time, I’m good,” she said.In SU’s next two games against Dartmouth and Cornell, she was more than good.In 14 minutes against Dartmouth in the home opener, Ford finished with a career-high 13 points. She didn’t miss any of the four shots she took in the first half, all of which were 3-pointers.On Monday night against Cornell, Ford shot 2-of-3 from the field. Although she only played eight minutes, she finished with four points, an assist and a steal.Ford checked into the game at the 17:56 mark of the first half, and it took her just three seconds to score. Two minutes later, Ford made a slick pass inside to center Shakeya Leary, who made a turnaround hook shot. The basket gave the Orange an 8-7 lead — one it wouldn’t relinquish for the rest of the night.“The first game I was rushing ‘cause we were down,” Ford said. “… The second and third games I just took my time.”While Ford is just beginning to find her niche on the Orange, Butler knows the potential her roommate has. Ford and Butler have known each other for more than four years, having played together on the renowned AAU team Exodus NYC and at Nazareth Regional (N.Y.) High School in Brooklyn.Butler said Ford has always been aggressive and a force on the glass, and in the time she’s known her has become a better decision maker and quicker on defense. Ford has also extended her shooting range.While her minutes are unpredictable, what is predictable is her production. Excluding the game against Washington State, Ford is shooting 75 percent from the field and 80 percent from 3-point range.“She’s getting more comfortable,” Butler said. “Going from last year from playing little minutes and then this year playing big minutes for us, I think it’s more so each game she’s getting more comfortable, getting more relaxed and playing more of her game.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on November 20, 2013 at 12:31 am Contact Josh: jmhyber@syr.edulast_img read more

Duncan Hamilton becomes first three time winner of William Hill SBOTY award

first_img William Hill accelerates transformation agenda to overcome COVID realities August 5, 2020 Gamesys tops list for GambleAware Q1 donations July 10, 2020 Submit Share Related Articles Duncan Hamilton has become the first author to win three William Hill ‘Sports Book of the Year’ (SBOTY) awards, as judges recognised his biography of cricket correspondent Neville Cardus as 2019’s best sports literature.Yesterday at London’s Horseguards Hotel, William Hill judges presented Hamilton with his third SBOTY award, having previously won in 2007 for ‘Provided You Don’t Kiss Me’ and 2009 for ‘Harold Larwood: The Authorized Biography’. Praising ‘The Great Romantic: Cricket and the Golden Age of Neville Cardus’ – judges stated that Hamilton had presented a comprehensive biography of a writer who would change the way sports journalism and writing was viewed and understood.Writing and reporting on cricket during the 1940-70s, Cardus’ work would transcend sports audiences at a time of great social change within UK society.Amongst those who venerated Cardus were PG Wodehouse, John Arlott, Harold Pinter, JB Priestley and Donald Bradman.Alyson Rudd – The TimesIn The Great Romantic, Hamilton demonstrated how Cardus popularised cricket writing. In Cardus’ words, to people who ‘didn’t know a leg-break from the pavilion cat at Lord’s’ he became a star in his own right with exquisite phrase-making, disdain for statistics and a penchant for literary and musical allusions.Alyson Rudd, Chair of SBOTY Judges, commented: “The judges were bowled over by the quality of the writing and the way in which Hamilton brings to life the characters that defined cricket between the two world wars. The author explains that Neville Cardus was unknowable but this book does a very fine job indeed of guiding us through his career and motivations.” StumbleUpon SBC Magazine Issue 10: Kaizen Gaming rebrand and focus for William Hill CEO August 25, 2020 Sharelast_img read more
