For the past 17 months, the Cherry Circle Room has remained closed inside the Chicago Athletic Association Hotel (CAA) off Michigan Avenue; the windowless dining room was not ideal for adhering to pandemic safety best practices. But as autumn approaches, hibernation will finally end on Friday, September 24, when the Land and Sea department will reopen the restaurant with a new menu and a new team.

CAA offers a variety of bars and restaurants, including Cindy’s Rooftop, which only recently reopened. Land & Sea partner Pete Toalson said via email that they have intentionally decided to gradually reopen. The hotel began taking reservations for guests before reopening its second floor, which is home to the Cherry Circle Room and other venues.

“We started with the playroom, then we focused on the drawing room,” writes Toalson. “We just opened Milk Room a few weeks ago and have spent the last month focusing on menu development and staff training for the reopening of the Cherry Circle Room.”

Restaurant space is heavy on dark woods with a vintage sports club feel that draws steakhouse favorites like a 22-ounce, 30-day, dry-aged bone-in rib-eye ($ 95). The restaurant’s steak tartare and shrimp cocktail are other remnants of the pre-pandemic menu. The restaurant will initially be open for dinner only five days a week.

Cherry Circle has a few notable additions to their staff that pave the way for some new menu items. Alisha Elenz, nominated for a 2019 James Beard Award for Rising Star while working at Mfk in Lakeview and Bar Biscay in West Town, is the new Executive Deputy Chef. Most recently at Goddess & the Grocer, Elenz is joined by Jacob Sloan (W, Soho House) and new sommelier Anika Ellison (Spiaggia). Land & Sea has also promoted Rosie Estrada as Executive Pastry Chef, which ensures the continuity of the restaurant. They will all work under the direction of Land & Sea’s Director of Culinary Operations, Max Robbins, who is also the Executive Chef of Longman & Eagle in Logan Square.

New menu highlights include a roasted Mediterranean seabass during cooking, confit duck legs, and mushroom linguine that uses cashews to mimic cacio e pepe.

The restaurant bar cart, an element of service that many restaurants have retained in the midst of the pandemic, is back and specializes in Wisconsin supper club Old Fashioneds. The global cocktail program is inspired by The Old Waldorf Astoria Bar Book with modifications due to the repeal of the 18th century, a venerable book that dates back to 1934.

Cherry Circle’s return follows other reopenings. Earlier this month, Land & Sea reopened the Lost Lake Cocktail Bar in Logan Square with a new drink menu that takes the bar in a new direction with its signature tiki drinks.

Take a look at the menu below. The Cherry Circle room returns Friday.

Cherry Circle Room, inside the Chicago Athletic Association Hotel, 12 S. Michigan Avenue, open 5 pm-11pm Wednesday through Sunday. Reservations via Resy.

Dear Sir,

In November 2020, the Saint Lucia Sports Association proceeded with the election of its leaders. The meeting was held at the headquarters of Olympic House. This process allowed participants to vote for the people who they believed would serve the organization and do well in terms of athletes and work in athletic development on the island.

Because we were in the midst of the COVID pandemic, it would have been thought that this process would allow participants who could not be there in person, to participate via zoom or other means, however, this was not an option for the affiliates.

From what I understand, only one club did not participate in the process, however, the electoral process went smoothly. Reports indicate that the only club noticed flaws in the process and therefore felt uncomfortable voting.

From where. I asked a few questions:

Why is the process faulty? Why have other people not chosen not to participate in the process? Is there a constitution? Did they follow the constitution? Do we still have ghost clubs without athletes or executive members? Is this still a factor in our sports fraternity? What happened to the registration procedure (of clubs / organizations) with the Ministry of Youth and Sports?

Is the revision of the Constitution complete? At what stage is it?

The constitution of the SLAA allows for the establishment of a number of policies and committees. Are these committees functional? Is there a disciplinary commission? Who sits on this committee, is there a finance committee? Who sits on this committee? Is there a publication committee? Is there an appeal board? Is this information accessible to everyone? How do you find it?

Do the clubs that are part of this organization all have executive members, are they structured clubs and are they registered with the Ministry of Youth and Sports?

What is the place of parents in this whole process? Why are parents not actively participating in decision-making processes? Why are you or your executive excluding them?

Between 2020 and now, the Saint Lucia Sports Association has organized three meetings. Over the three meetings, a number of issues and concerns were brought to your attention. However, to date there is no communication from you or your team.

I have made an effort to seek clarification from the club that my nephew is a member of, on how the athletes are selected to represent this country. I have been informed that athletes must meet the qualification standards set by the association’s technical team.

When to ask. what are the standards set for this sporting period – the answer was – “NONE.” If there is, it has never been shared with us.

I am very interested in sport – like me too – I am a former national athlete. I wish to express my regret for the way the Association continues to serve our young athletes.

There is no development program in place except for track and field competitions. There are athletes who show great promise – names that come to mind – Michael Joseph, Miguel Charlery, Ruben Nichlos, Hannah Charles, Julien Alfed, Naomi London, Armani Modeste. What are you doing as an Association to make sure these young athletes get the support they need? I have seen the return of Lynen Leonce-former CARIFTA Games medalist and people like Dylan Edwin etc.

Why didn’t we have a contingent at the NACAC U20/23 or the World Juniors U20? Didn’t Michael have a good time. From what I see in Nairobi, he could very well have benefited from this experience?

Are we dependent on schools in the United States to provide development opportunities? Is that right? Haven’t you noticed, along with your team, that very few of these schools prepare your athletes for you. They want their schools to win, so they recruit the talent?

By the time the athletes leave college, they are exhausted from the harsh regime of college sports.

Is your goal to win medals, if so why not focus on development which includes exposure. Exposure to competition, other training camps, etc.

I know of many situations where athletes have been put in compromising situations – the most recent was the 2019 CARIFTA TEAM. Yes, they ended up with two coaches who did not have the funding to provide them with their food needs. basic – since they had missed their flight? The question is; Who helped them? Was it another athlete? Or a politician who came to their aid? Where was the team leader?

Is it true that a parent questioned the validity of the results that were presented at one of the meetings held this year? Is it true that a person who has not competed appears on the results sheet as having raced and that a time is allotted to him? This is not a new phenomenon for SLAA. This has been going on for years. Why is there no improvement?

COVID 19 has surely impacted all sports around the world – however, athletics is a sport that can easily allow participation. But of course in Saint Lucia we are unique as we always have an HPITAL at George Odlum Stadium. How does this affect the development of our athlete? Do you care enough to do anything about it? If so, what does SLAA do? How do you make athletics possible for young future Olympians?

Over the years, SLAA has not encouraged parents to take an active role, they have not encouraged other agencies and organizations to get involved – my question is simply: WHY?

It feels like if you speak up, the athletes are VICTIMS. I have heard of cases where clubs or athletes are treated unfairly because they have talked about situations that we just have unfair in their minds. Would you rather they didn’t ask the hard questions?

WHY are they seen as a threat when they speak out? Why victimize? Why do you select athletes for major championships and choose someone who knows nothing about said athlete to be their coach? What is the rationale?

Without parents, you have no athletes. Without clubs and coaches, you have no athletes. The association is nothing without them. We need to find a balance to work together to develop sport and athletes.

Our children are our business. You do what it takes for them, and we will support you. Where are the PLANS for athlete development for the period 2021-2024? What financial or technical support or visibility do you intend to provide for the development.

What are your plans for young athletes? Where are our senior athletes? Why should they retire at 25, 28 and 30? Where is the development plan Mr. President?

Where are we going? COVID isn’t going anywhere in a hurry, we all need to learn to live with it. We have to start the work now, not tomorrow not the day after tomorrow, NOW !!

By Gary D. Robertson

Associated Press

RALEIGH – Senate Republicans on Thursday dropped a proposal to end oversight of interschool sports by the North Carolina High School Athletic Association, replacing it with constraints on group finances and transparency in decision-making activities .

A bill approved last month by the Senate Education Committee would have created a new state sports commission, its members chosen by the governor and legislative leaders, to take over the work of the association.

The measure was revamped, however, after complaints from Democrats and association allies that it would inject partisanship into high school sports and effectively end the NCHSAA, which began in 1913. The goal group nonprofit, linked to the University of North Carolina until becoming independent in 2010, has come under criticism in recent years from lawmakers and voters for its authority and considerable assets.

The amended proposal, which top association leaders still oppose, would essentially order the State Board of Education to reach a formal written agreement with the association by October 15 on how it would administer the athletics in the future.

“We have heard you and (in) this bill we are looking to reform, not destroy,” Senator Vickie Sawyer, Iredell County Republican and author of the bill, told the education committee. before it is approved by a voice vote. “It just sets a standard for the operations of a supplier that works for the Crown … this bill simply sets out a regulatory framework with reporting requirements.”

But the measure requires several elements in the “memorandum of understanding”. Like a government agency, the association would be subject to state public records and open meeting laws. There would be limits on its share of state tournament revenue and on the fees of the more than 400 member schools.

The rules of the game and association penalty are said to be the subject of public comment and could be blocked by the State Board of Education. Appeals would be handled by an independent commission appointed by the board, not by the association. And the NCHSAA couldn’t restrict the recording of state tournament games by parents of athletes or school employees – a complaint filed by families during the COVID-19 pandemic when they couldn’t not attend in person. Unlike the previous version, private schools could still participate in association athletics.

“This legislation creates an atmosphere in which an organization can focus on the programming and organization of the games and the administration,” said Senator Michael Lazzara, Onslow County Republican and committee member. “I think it’s good for the state. I think it’s good for parents. I think it’s good for schools.

Association leaders, including Commissioner Que Tucker, said Thursday the bill was too prescriptive and failed to recognize reforms that NCHSAA leaders launched in the spring.

“We have always had an informal memorandum of understanding and we are keen to continue this work,” Tucker told the committee. “But what we would like to be able to do is continue this without coercion, without political influence.”

Colin Fegeley, athletic director at Green Level High School in Wake County, said he was “struggling to find many aspects of the bill that really put student athletes first.”

Senators traded verbal blows over whether Tucker and other board executives had contributed to the latest legislation. Senate Republicans met privately with Tucker and other NCHSAA leaders after the previous bill was unveiled and voted on by the education committee.

But much of the negotiations on the latest version took place with the State Board of Education, Sawyer said, because “respectively, I don’t know that it’s really important to get the contractor’s opinion on this. what should the contract be ”. Senator Gladys Robinson, a Democrat from Guilford County, said it was a bad move that encourages partisanship. Yet most members of the State Council are appointed by Democratic Governor Roy Cooper.

Senator Jay Chaudhuri, a Democrat from Wake County, suggested lawmakers downplay mandates and let the association and the board of education work out a deal. Otherwise, he said, “the unintended consequence of the bill could ultimately lead to the demise” of the association.

The bill now goes to another committee before it hits the floor of the Senate. Formal support from the House is also needed before he goes to Governor Cooper’s office.

In Gaelic, the motto on the crest of Pittsburgh Hurling Club reads “Near agus Misneach”.

Or, in English, “Strength and Courage”.

If you have seen what the sport of the howling seems at full speed, you understand why this is suitable.

If you haven’t, you can see it at the championship level this weekend in Indiana Township. It was then that the Pittsburgh Gaelic Athletic Association hosts its Midwest finals Saturday and Sunday at Founders Field, with action starting at 10 a.m. on both days.

Regional hurling and Gaelic football finals will take place. For pitchers, a national offer is on the line against teams from Rochester, Akron and Cleveland, with homestead Pittsburgh Pucas holding the seed after winning their four games this season and the previous championship in 2019, ahead of the coronavirus pandemic. .

If the Pucas defend their title, they will play for the national championship in Massachusetts on the weekend of August 19-22.

The Pittsburgh Hurling Club has been in existence since 2007 and operates out of Panther Hollow, near the Pitt campus. On their website, the Pucas say they typically have 25 members, this year aged 18 to 52, with Pitt acting as a solid power system for the team.

“It’s a chance for us,” said club president Sean Stayduhar. “The ones (the Pitt students) also play with us, the ones who stay for the summer. So every year we have young blood. … It’s really good for us to grow the club.

Hurling in the US typically has 13 players on the pitch (that’s 15 in Ireland, usually on slightly larger pitches). In the United States, fields are 140 to 160 meters long and 90 to 100 meters wide.

As in all sports, the rules are nuanced, but it is mainly a question of use a wooden stick (a hurley) with a wider flat front face to hit a hard ball into a goal for three runs or through the uprights above the goal for a run.

You can move the ball forward (sliotar) by dribbling it over the hurley while running, catching it with your hands, or throwing the ball with a baseball or tennis swing across the court to a teammate.

And there are a lot of contacts along the way.

“People who play lacrosse tend to always say it’s like playing lacrosse,” said team treasurer Cory Schemm. “But the baseball swing is interesting. In hurling, your hands are reversed. In baseball, your dominant hand is on the top. But when throwing your dominant hand is at the bottom.

At first glance, it seems the most difficult tactic to master would be to hurley dribble the ball or pick the ball up off the ground at full speed. But Schemm says you’d be surprised how quickly you learn these skills. For him, even though he played baseball growing up, the hardest part of the game to perfect is swinging the hurley in motion.

“For me it’s hitting with the left hand while running,” Schemm said. “I can hit right-handed by running in the right direction. But when you’re almost hitting while running, it’s pretty hard. Especially when you are also hit from behind. “

Or maybe the hardest thing could be playing on goal. Because howlers don’t wear a lot of gear – as Stayduhar describes it, basically a street hockey style helmet and cage. And goalkeepers don’t wear much more other than maybe shin guards trying to stop a ball that sometimes travels over 100mph.

“We were lucky,” Stayduhar said of the hiring of goalkeepers. “But usually the person who’s the goalie is a bit… on the sidelines. “

The unique nature of the game – something different to do – seemed to be the draw for Schemm and Stayduhar. Schemm says he was recruited by a friend a few years ago. Stayduhar says he stumbled upon the game simply while attending the annual Irish Festival in Pittsburgh, where the GAA still sets up a booth.

Despite the sport’s native roots and Pittsburgh’s Irish populace, Stayduhar says the team are surprisingly thin when it comes to Irish-born players.

“We actually have more Italian players than anything else,” said Stayduhar.

Stayduhar says when they meet teams with a more densely populated roster of Irish players, it’s a whole different level.

“New York, Boston, Philly, there’s a ton of Irish. Chicago too. These are the hotbeds, ”Stayduhar said.

And the Pucas are hoping Pittsburgh will be in that mix soon, too, with events like this weekend’s tournament acting as a large local stage for the game to recruit.

The Florida State University Board of Trustees created a new direct services organization at its Friday meeting, creating the Florida State University Athletics Association (FSUAA). The Board of Directors approved a Memorandum of Understanding (MOA) jointly developed by the FSU Sports Department and Seminole Boosters, Inc. to improve the alignment, transparency, coordination and effectiveness of the fundraising, operations, marketing and management related to sport.

The FSUAA Board of Directors will be made up of five voting members, including the FSU President as Chairman of the Board of Directors, the Florida State NCAA College Athletics Representative, and the President. of Seminole Boosters, Inc. The Athletic Director will serve as the General Manager (CEO) of the FSUAA and report directly to the University President / Chairman of the FSUAA Board of Directors.

“I am very happy that we were able to accomplish the creation of the FSUAA and I think it will strengthen both Athletics and Seminole Boosters, Inc.,” said Thrasher. “This structure is something that has been talked about at FSU for a long time, and I thank FSU Board Chairman Ed Burr, Booster President Doug Russell, David Coburn and Andy Miller for being creative and wisdom to achieve it. “

“The reorganization of Seminole Boosters and our athletics department will allow FSU to build on the historic success of both organizations,” said Burr. “The creation of the FSUAA will ensure that the priorities, mission and direction of Boosters, Athletics and Administration are aligned.”

The FSUAA will oversee all aspects of the FSU athletics program, approve budgets, strategic plans, develop policies regarding programming, facility funding, prioritization of projects and programs and be responsible for hiring, the evaluation and remuneration of the sports director.

Doug Russell, current President of Seminole Boosters, Inc. thanked President Thrasher and President Burr for their leadership and vision in creating the FSUAA stating that “the new FSUAA will allow Seminole Boosters and athletics to work more closely together to achieve our goals. This is clearly in Florida State University’s long-term best interest.

Andy Miller, President of Seminole Boosters, Inc., also praised the benefits of the new DSO, stating, “I believe we have developed a structure that will respond effectively to future challenges and opportunities.

The MOA reaffirms the governance structure and mission of the Board of Directors of Seminole Boosters, Inc. to lead the fundraising program and manage the assets and income donated and pledged to the company.

To create better alignment and coordination at the staff level, the President / CEO of Seminole Booster, Inc., will report to both the Booster Board of Directors and the Director of Athletics. Additionally, the Athletic Director will sit on several key committees of Seminole Boosters, Inc., including the Finance and Budget Committee, and – along with the University President and FSU Board Chair – will serve on Seminole Boosters, Inc.., Board of Directors and Executive Council.

The proposed changes are expected to be implemented by fall 2019 after approval by the Florida State Board of Directors and Seminole Boosters Board of Directors at their respective fall meetings.
