(92 year old Levi Oakes of Akwesasne is honoured for his service in second world war.)Annette Francis APTN National NewsAKWESASNE N.Y — Close to 700 delegates, veterans and members of Akwesasne gathered in the sweltering heat Saturday for a historic ceremony on the American side of the Mohawk Territory.They came to honour 24 Akwesasne Mohawk Code talkers.Levi Oakes, 92, is the sole surviving code talker from Akwesasne who fought in the second world war.“I enlisted at the age of 18, and from there I went to Louisiana to be trained,” said Oakes.Oakes served in New Guinea and the Philippines.Code talkers used their language to communicate between allied troops. Enemy forces couldn’t decipher the language.According to New York Congress woman, Elsie Stefanik, the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe is one of 33 American Indian tribes being recognized for using their language to send coded messages.“I can’t think of a more fitting time to bestow this congressional medal, then on the 150th anniversary of memorial day, said Stefanik.”She said, for far too long their sacrifice went unnoticed, and they were instructed not to speak of their roles in the military campaigns.Oakes said he kept his role in the war from his seven children, until five years ago.His son Wally said he’s proud of his father’s accomplishments.“We weren’t sure when he would get a medal, we were just hoping before he left this earth,” he said.District Chief, Timothy Thompson said today’s ceremony is the result of a long process that began in 2011, it’s long overdue.“It’s about time that our elders and our families get recognized for their valiant efforts to secure peace, he said.”email@example.com
The state of emergency applies to the entire province and ensures federal, provincial and local resources can be delivered in a co-ordinated response to protect the public, which remains the provincial government’s top priority.During the 2017 wildfire season, the Province was in a provincial state of emergency for 10 weeks, from July 7th to September 15th. The previous provincial state of emergency before the 2017 wildfire season was issued in August 2003.“Public safety is always our first priority and, as wildfire activity is expected to increase, this is a progressive step in our wildfire response to make sure British Columbia has access to any and all resources necessary,” Farnworth said. “Taking this step will further ensure we can protect the public, property and infrastructure, and assist with firefighting efforts.”As of yesterday, there were 566 wildfires burning in B.C., with 29 evacuation orders affecting approximately 3,050 people, in addition to 48 evacuation alerts impacting approximately 18,720 people.The Province says that the extended weather forecast calls for continued hot and dry conditions, with a risk of thunderstorms in some parts of the province.Currently, more than 3,372 firefighters and contractors are actively engaged in fighting fires in all fire regions of the province. This includes 1,427 B.C. contract personnel, as well as 436 out-of-province personnel from Alberta, New Brunswick, Northwest Territories, Quebec, Saskatchewan, Parks Canada, Australia, Mexico and New Zealand. VICTORIA, B.C. – The B.C. government has declared a provincial state of emergency to support the provincewide response to the ongoing wildfire situation.Public Safety Minister and Solicitor General Mike Farnworth made the declaration at 8:30 Wednesday morning based on the recommendation from B.C.’s wildfire and emergency management officials.The state of emergency is initially in effect for 14 days, once issued, and may be extended or rescinded as necessary. The federal government has responded to and accepted British Columbia’s request for assistance. In the coming days, federal personnel and resources will be arriving in B.C. to assist with wildfire efforts.“Given the unpredictable behaviour of wildfires and the number of significant wildfires in all areas of the province, we’re bringing in the additional resources we need to keep people and communities as safe as possible,” said Doug Donaldson, Minister of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development. “We’re asking British Columbians to do their part and follow burning bans and restrictions to prevent human-caused fires.”The state of emergency gives agencies, such as the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development, Emergency Management BC, the fire commissioner and the RCMP, the authority to take every action necessary to fight the wildfires and protect people and communities.
The world was taken by surprise when an utterly defenceless and unsuspecting lot of people gathered to offer prayers at New Zealand’s Christchurch mosques and were gunned down simply for the names they bore. The immediate reason for this terror attack is the gun laws that make it easy for civilians to possess firearms. This grave public concern seems to have been addressed rather promptly with the Prime Minister’s announcement to alter gun laws in the country and that there isn’t a better time to do it than now – remarkably a very distinct stand to take compared to the world’s bulldozing superpower, the USA. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern advocated a wider public health approach that seeks to reduce deaths from gun violence; instead of focusing on the unrealistic change in human behavior of possible murders, she assertively talks about creating an environment where people are less likely to fall victim to gun violence. Without the rhetorics of labeling perpetrators of gun violence as good or bad or unwell, she acknowledged the seriousness of the hazard of civilians possessing weapons and that it is an inherently dangerous thing and that guns must be made much harder to get. As much as the menace of gun violence keeps the discussions going, the underlying but still much too obvious matter of white supremacy is brought to highlight by none other than Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern herself. The popular rant of ‘terrorism does not have a religion’ was empty noise until now. Ms. Ardern’s compassion and leadership have directed attentions to the underside of terrorism: just intense intolerance for the ‘other’, without any labels of religion or ethnicity. Her empathy and solidarity with the targeted community have a set a formidable example of good leadership on the global platform. Her sensitivity to the bereaved and firmness against the perpetrator of the attacks who deserves no sympathy or attention, is for world leaders to appreciate and emulate.

Wide receiver Santonio Holmes is set to make his preseason debut for the New York Jets on Sunday night.The former Super Bowl MVP hasn’t played a game since his infamous benching in last year’s regular season finale.Jets coach Rex Ryan confirmed the news on Friday, saying that both Holmes and slot receiver Jeremy Kerley will face the Carolina Panthers. Their much-needed return should come as a big boost to a struggling offense that has failed to score a touchdown in the preseason. The Mark Sanchez-led first unit has yet to produce a point in eight possessions.“I hope it could be a big spark,” Kerley said. “Get some new legs out there and give Mark some [more] targets.”Holmes has been sidelined since being hit by cornerback Antonio Cromartie in an August 4 intra-squad scrimmage and suffering rib cartilage damage.The Jets’ only proven receiver returned to practice on a limited basis this week. The seventh-year pro from Ohio State started all 16 games last year, totaling 51 receptions for 654 yards and eight touchdowns.For his career, Holmes boasts 77 receiving plays of 20 yards or better and 17 that have been good for at least 40 yards. Two hundred fifty-six of his 338 career catches have gone for first downs.Holmes was named the MVP of Super Bowl XVIII after totaling nine catches for 131 yards and a touchdown to help Pittsburgh outlast Arizona, 27-23. Four of his receptions and 73 of his yards came on the game’s final drive, punctuated by his spectacular game-winning catch in the contest’s waning moments.Kerley has missed most of training camp with a slight hamstring tear.Ryan said he expects his starters to play three quarters Sunday, although both Holmes and Kerley will each be limited to about 10 to 15 plays.None of the Jets starters or backup quarterback Tim Tebow is expected to play in the team’s preseason finale against the Philadelphia Eagles on August 30.
5. How many points with OSU score?The Buckeyes are averaging nearly 45 points a game so far in 2013, while the Rattlers are only putting up an average of 18 a game. OSU’s young defensive players are improving with every game, and against a FAMU offense that has been struggling, Miller and company should get plenty of possessions. How much Meyer forces the issue offensively against the Rattlers will be vindictive of how much OSU visits the end zone, but scoring more than 50 points again is certainly not out of the realm of possibilities. 3. How much playing time will Braxton Miller get?Arguably the biggest storyline heading into Saturday is whether junior quarterback Braxton Miller or redshirt-senior Kenny Guiton gets the starting bid to lead the Buckeye offense. Meyer said Miller will play a limited role against FAMU, but it will be interesting to see how it figures into the equation against a Football Championship Subdivision team. Guiton has led OSU to a pair of wins in his absence, playing well enough to be named the Walter Camp Offensive Player of the Week after his performance against California. Meyer said his backup “has earned some time,” and in a game OSU should win, it is likely that keeping Miller out of harms way will be a top priority for the coaches. 4. Will OSU take this game seriously?After winning a primetime game last weekend at Cal, the Buckeyes return home for a noon matchup against the Rattlers. With another night game on the horizon just a week later when conference rival Wisconsin comes to Columbus, OSU’s focus on taking care of the task at hand is worth watching. Redshirt-senior safety C.J. Barnett said the team has all of their focus on FAMU, but if the Buckeyes score early and often Saturday, Meyer and company may have to work to keep them locked in to close out the victory.

The return of Carlos HydeAfter serving a three game suspension for his involvement in an incident at a Columbus bar in July, senior running back Carlos Hyde is set to make his return against Florida A&M. Hyde rushed for 970 yards and 16 touchdowns in 2012, and was set to return as Ohio State’s top running back heading into the year. While Hyde was serving his suspension, redshirt-senior running back Jordan Hall stepped up in a big way, and will start against Florida A&M while Hyde is left on the bench. Coach Urban Meyer has said he does not know who will be getting the majority of carries, so both backs are heading into the game shrouded in some mystery. Other running backs like freshman Dontre Wilson and redshirt-junior Rod Smith may see a reduced role compared to previous weeks because of Hyde’s return to the field. 2. Can Bradley Roby bounce back?Redshirt-junior cornerback Bradley Roby is typically a rock for the OSU secondary and is considered one of the top defensive players in the country. But against California he was burned by the speedy Golden Bear receivers, allowing two touchdowns in his first start of the season. After serving a one game suspension to start the year for his involvement in an incident at a Bloomington, Ind., bar this summer, Roby made a triumphant return against San Diego State the week before, but seemed to be in a funk against Cal. With the Big Ten schedule looming, Roby will need to be at his best if the Buckeyes are going to achieve their National Championship goals for the season. Playing well before next week’s date with Wisconsin Sept. 28 will be vital for Roby’s (and OSU’s) defensive confidence.
Urban Meyer watches the B1G Championship game against Wisconsin from the sidelines in the third quarter. Ohio State won 27-21. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorFive-star offensive tackle Jackson Carman had been Ohio State’s No. 1 target for months. He was the top-ranked player at a position of need and the top player in Ohio.In the end, Urban Meyer and his staff couldn’t seal the deal, and Carman ditched home for another top program — Clemson.Carman, along with defensive end Brenton Cox, safety Jaiden Woodbey and quarterback Emory Jones all left Ohio State for other programs in the final two weeks leading up to Wednesday’s decision date, leaving Meyer without even more transcendent talent than the 20 players that signed to his class Wednesday.On paper, the 2018 class is perhaps Meyer’s best ever as a head coach. However, it should not be overlooked. For a time, Ohio State had four five-star recruits with a chance at five. It ended Wednesday with two, while conference rival Penn State added its third.Carman wasn’t committed to Ohio State at any point in time like Cox, Woodbey and Jones. But it’s expected that the Buckeyes should land the top prospect in Ohio every year. Since Meyer arrived in Columbus, he has landed the top recruit in the state of Ohio every year with the exception of 2016 when five-star offensive tackle Tommy Kraemer went to Notre Dame. As for the other three, it’s difficult for a program to keep players who further from the school committed for a long time, when top programs close to home are knocking on the door.Woodbey, a five-star safety from California, committed in February, but flipped and signed with Florida State Wednesday. Cox, a five-star strong-side defensive end from Georgia, committed to Ohio State in April before decommitting Dec. 6 and signing with the Georgia Bulldogs Wednesday. Jones, a four-star dual-threat quarterback committed to the Buckeyes in July 2016, before flipping and mailing his letter of intent to Florida Wednesday.Those three decommitments in the last two weeks of the early signing period hurt Ohio State and have great implications.The first impact is the optics. Losing three players in less than two weeks, with two being five-stars and another being a highly rated dual-threat quarterback, makes it look as if the coaching staff is losing its touch. That’s probably not the case because Meyer has been an excellent recruiter his entire career and his 2018 class is still ranked as the top class. But given that Penn State landed a five-star Wednesday when Ohio State lost two, that’s added pressure for the Buckeyes’ coaching staff to hold onto prized recruits.Second, Meyer, and quarterbacks coach and co-offensive coordinator Ryan Day had to find a second option to Jones late in the process. Now, they ended with a solid option in three-star Matthew Baldwin from Austin, Texas, who led his team to a state championship game Saturday, but Meyer probably would’ve liked to not rely on flipping a quarterback late to have one for this recruiting class. Baldwin was previously committed to Colorado State.Ohio State’s depth at safety isn’t hurt too much with Woodbey’s departure from the class, but with Cox’s decommitment, Ohio State had to flip three-star Alex Williams from West Virginia just to have one end in the class. Without Carman, it has just one offensive tackle in four-star Max Wray. Both are positions of need.Meyer has already had discussions to play Williams at tight end, so Ohio State would only have three defensive ends for next season, pending a potential commitment from four-star Tyreke Smith. Wray is the fourth offensive tackle on next year’s roster.Ohio State finally beat Alabama in a recruiting class, but it limped to the first finish line Wednesday with key misses that can impact a program for years. That’s something Meyer will have to live with.
