PRESS RELEASE STATEMENT BY VIETNAM VETERAN, JIM TURANO

 

I am ashamed of our current President. He surrounded himself before and after the election with very questionable people. Many have been fired, resigned or been indicted to date. Mr. Trump is the Art of the Deal, the master manipulator, and must be cognizant of everything going on around  him at all times. He did not get where he  is  because he is oblivious to all that is going on. Rather the nucleus  of it all.

He wants others to believe he knows nothing about nothing. He does not know what his son in law is doing, his son, his daughter, his own hand selected staff along with every meeting with Russian’s in the White house. His supporters currently are blinded by the cult like mentality or just plain similar wicked dual personalities.

He has insulted World Leaders, families who lost their loved ones in War, and our own hero Senator McCain not once but twice since Trump has been elected. A man who shows no respect to others can’t  be respected by me personally.

If the entire barrel in the White house has all rotten apples, Trump can’t be the only pure unspoiled apple in the group.

Reality is far from fake news. We as Americans must serve the Justice that has been prepared to right the wrong once and for all.

Gang, we changed a few games. Rain makeups.... Please check this schedule.... Check this site if it is raining the day of the game. AT 5PM we will post a notice IF games are cancelled for that day. If games are not posted as cancelled that day, and there referees AND both coaches agree that they should not be played then game will be played at another time. All players must wear knee pads at all times... while in the game or on the bench. Safety is our main concern. If a player feels that something is not safe, please do not play and immediately let a referee know. When players get to the game please fill out the score sheet that the scorekeeper will have. That was your name is printed correctly for the newspaper story. We will have Instagram players of the game from time to time. The league is sponsored this year by Arby's, Maspeth Federal Savings, Petro Fuel, MCClancy HS and Martin Luther School. IF for any reason your team gave a conflict that was not paid attention to by us please let us know immediately at heroes@queensledger.com. 20018 Heroes Schedule – Second 2 weeks - 5-29 to 6-7 BOYS 17U TUE 5/29 GUESS WHO SHOTS FIRED CROWLEY 1 5:45 TUE 5/29 ELITE 84 MCCLANCY CROWLEY 1 6:45 TUE 5/29 COUGARS HANAC CROWLEY 1 7:45 TUE 5/29 EBC DRAGONS FRONTERA 2 5:45 TUE 5/29 VIPERS CATHEDRAL FRONTERA 2 6:45 WED 5/30 MCCLANCY EBC CROWLEY 1 5:45 WED 5/30 QUEENS ELITE VIPERS CROWLEY 1 7:45 THU 5/31 EBC VIPERS CROWLEY 1 5:45 THU 5/31 QUEENS ELITE ELITE 84 CROWLEY 1 6:45 THU 5/31 HANAC DRAGONS CROWLEY 2 5:45 MON 6/4 MCCLANCY COUGARS CROWLEY 1 5:45 MON 6/4 DRAGONS CATHEDRAL CROWLEY 1 6:45 MON 6/4 EBS QUEENS ELITE CROWLEY 1 7:45 MON 6/4 ELITE 84 VIPERS FRONTERA 1 6:45 TUE 6/5 VIPERS GUES WHO CROWLEY 2 6:45 TUE 6/5 DRAGONS MCCLANCY CROWLEY 2 7:45 TUE 6/5 QUEENS ELITE SHOTS FIRED FRONTERA 2 5:45 TUE 6/5 HANAC CATHEDRAL FRONTERA 2 6:45 TUE 6/5 COUGARS EBC FRONTERA 2 7:45 WED 6/6 QUEENS ELITE GUESS WHO CROWLEY 1 5:45 WED 6/6 VIPERS HANAC CROWLEY 1 6:45 THU 6/7 SHOTS FIRED EBC CROWLEY 1 5:45 THU 6/7 DRAGONS ELITE 84 CROWLEY 1 6:45 ____________________________________________________________ BOYS 14U TUE 5/29 GOOD SQUAD VARIETY CROWLEY 2 5:45 TUE 5/29 KABACK VARIETY CROWLEY 2 6:45 WED 5/30 KABACK NYC APES CROWLEY 2 6:45 THU 5/31 KABACK GOON SQUAD CROWLEY 2 6:45 MON 6/4 GOON SQUAD NYC APES FRONTERA 1 5:45 TUE 6/5 KABACK GOON SQUAD CROWLEY 2 5:45 WED 6/6 NYC APES KABACK CROWLEY 1 6:45 _______________________________________________ BOYS 12U TUE 5/29 QUEENS ELITE MV EXPRESS FRONTERA 1 5:45 TUE 5/29 DELLACORTE QUEENS FINEST FRONTERA 1 6:45 WED 5/30 QUEENS FINEST M&E ELECTRIC FRONTERA 1 5:45 MON 6/4 MV EXPRESS QUEENS ELITE CROWLEY 2 5:45 MON 6/4 M&E ELECTRIC DELLACORTE CROWLEY 2 6:45 TUE 6/5 QUEENS FINEST MV EXPRESS FRONTERA 1 5:45 TUE 6/5 QUEENS ELITE DELLACORTE FRONTERA 1 6:45 WED 6/6 MV EXPRESS M&E ELECTRIC CROWLEY 2 5:45 WED 6/6 QUEENS FINEST QUEENS ELITE CROWLEY 2 6:45 We want to thank our Heroes league sponsors​: Think about patronizing them....

LGBT Youth Drop-In Center opens in Woodside
by Jennifer Khedaroo
May 25, 2018 | 312 views | 0 0 comments | 2 2 recommendations | email to a friend | print
When Rosemary Lopez was 14 and attending Catholic school on Long Island, she came out. As an LGBT youth, she experienced a tremendous amount of bullying. Fast-forward a few decades, and Lopez is the new executive director of the AIDS Center of Queens County (ACQC), which last week celebrated the opening of a LGBT Youth Drop-In Center at 62-07 Woodside Avenue in Woodside. “There were no services back then and you would get ostracized by your family, but now we really want to see kids succeed,” Lopez said. “The world is different now. We’re getting more progressive, but you still see homeless kids because we all don’t have supportive families.” The center in Woodside will assist local homeless LGBT and at-risk youth by providing meals and hot showers, arranging spaces for napping, assisting in laundry, and helping to look for permanent housing. The center staff will also help young people go back to high school or college, as well as find work programs and provide job-search services. “A lot of kids coming into the center are from the city and Queens, and they are kids that you wouldn’t know are homeless,” Lopez said. “They’re on the subways and on the streets and we want to help. “There are no requirements or fees, just come in,” Lopez added. About five years ago, ACQC opened a drop-in center in Astoria. However, they found the location was difficult to access for many of the homeless youth. And due to the shelter’s shared space with a church, their weekday hours were limited and the center had to be closed on the weekends. However, the Astoria center was still a safe place for many homeless youth, helping about 15 people a day. The Woodside location also offers other services that complement their own programs. For example, the site is also home to the Mental Health Providers of Western Queens. Shirley Bejarano, ACQC director of Education and Prevention, said the center is making sure they are educating youth about getting tested for HIV and new prevention methods. Two and a half years ago, ACQC became affiliated with the AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), the largest global AIDS organization. “The highest percentage of young people who are homeless do identify as LGBT, and we need to make sure we have the safety net services available because it’s extremely important,” said Michael Camacho of AHF. The organization is already hearing from local schools who have homeless students. Lopez anticipates the Woodside center to begin helping 40 to 50 people a week before expanding. The center has two full-time staff members in addition to peers and part-time staff. “Not all of my team identifies and that’s why I think they’re so special,” said Cassildra Aguilera said. “If we had more people like my team, we would have healthier and happier young people.” Ikea Williams, who writes under the name Keys Will, performed two pieces from “Chrysalis: Not Quite The Butterfly,” which is about being homeless as an LGBT youth in Jamaica. Williams met Aguilera nearly 11 years ago at a drop-in center in Jamaica. Although the center wasn’t geared towards LGBT youth, it felt like it because there were so many young people there who identified. “Being here now, and seeing that this center is directed towards LGBT youth, it’s like we’ve come a long way,” Williams said.
