We knew we needed to upgrade at the five [centre] spot,” he said. “We looked at a couple of teams in the league with solid five-men that we had difficulty guarding throughout the year. Everyone that had one, we had trouble with.”

New York came through again for Leslie. He found and signed Rhamel Brown, a 6-foot-8, 235-pound big man, who holds Manhattan College’s record for blocked shots.

GEORGE Beamon will be a “key” cog in Worcester Wolves’ system this season, according to head coach Paul James.

The American, who can fill in at guard or forward, was the last player to join up with Wolves ahead of the new campaign as visa and work permit issues delayed his arrival.

But James insisted it was worth the wait as he believes Beamon will be a “shining” light for the British Basketball League outfit.

WORCESTER Wolves have signed “exciting” American point guard George Beamon, but last season’s captain Marek Klassen has decided to leave.

Klassen, 25, who played a key role in Wolves’ impressive finish to the 2016/17 British Basketball League campaign has been snapped up by Turkish side Bakirkoy Basket.

However head coach Paul James is thrilled to have captured ex-NBA D-League player Beamon from Iceland Dominos League team AK Thor Akureyri.

JFOUND: Rosso, Alessandra [MC2014] field engineer on the Gov. Mario M. Cuomo Bridge



Alessandra Rosso

2017 08Aug 19 Rosso

WHO: Rosso, 25, is a field engineer from the Bronx and graduated from Manhattan College in 2014.

WHAT SHE DID: Rosso previously placed steel bars in concrete to make structures stronger. More recently, she’s been “stressing” the bridge’s stay cables, which has her working hundreds of feet in the air.

VIEW FROM ABOVE: “I was always impressed by the guys who would climb up with no reservation whatsoever but after the first month you’re right there with them and it doesn’t faze you anymore. I used to be scared to look over the edge and then by the end you don’t care anymore. It’s pretty amazing how far down you can see. You can see the weather coming when you’re up there. You can tell if it’s going to rain in an hour or so…It feels a lot hotter up there because there’s nowhere to escape. There’s not a lot of shade. And the wind. As heavy as the towers are they sway. It’s a little unnerving when you’re not used to it.”

JNEWS: Whelan, Michael [MC2014] is the NJ LD11 Assembly candidate



Beck Announces Her Selected Assembly Candidates In LD 11

*** begin quote ***

Senator Jennifer Beck announced that she has selected Ocean Township Deputy Mayor Rob Acerra and Red Bank Councilman Michael Whelan as the Assembly candidates who will seek to unseat rookie Democrat Assembly members Eric Houghtaling and Joann Downey in the 11th legislative district this November.

*** and ***

Whelan, 25, single, is a 2014 graduate of Manhattan College and a 2010 graduate of Christian Brothers Academy. He is an Account Executive in the property and casualty insurance industry where he services commercial accounts and small businesses. He defeated long time incumbent Michael Dupont for a seat on the Red Bank Council in 2015.

The councilman said that in his 14 months on the Red Bank governing body, he has led the effort to tackle tough issues that had been lingering for many years without progress. He cited two parking plans the borough has implemented, a new redevelopment plan and an additional K-9 Officer for the Police Department.

“I take great pride in my ability to reach across the aisle and get things done for Monmouth County. Legislators discussed the possibility of dredging the Shark River for 20 years – that project is now nearing completion. I vocally opposed and organized the citizens’ opposition to New Jersey’s gasoline tax increase, starting a petition that garnered over 20,000 signatures and hosted rallies all over my district. Underfunded school districts are a problem across the State, I have been able to secure additional funds for Red Bank and Freehold Borough. My office has personally assisted hundreds of individuals after Superstorm Sandy who were looking for guidance in the rebuilding process. My office has worked in tandem with the numerous non profits created in the district to reach out to Sandy-effected homeowners and get them back in their homes.
