Fred Arthur Schwartz of Boca Raton has submitted an application for readmission to the Bar with the Florida Board of Bar Examiners. S chwartz resigned from the practice of law in Florida pursuant to the Supreme Court’s Order of February 20, 1997, under an allegation of misappropriation of trust funds.The Board of Bar Examiners will conduct a public hearing on Schwartz’s application for readmission and all members of the Bar are invited to write to the board regarding their knowledge of Schwartz, particularly in relation to his character and fitness for readmission.If you wish to be notified of the time and place of the hearing, submit a written request to Kathryn E. Ressel, Executive Director, Florida Board of Bar Examiners, 1891 Eider Court, Tallahassee 32399-1750.Burton Award nominations sought Continuing its practice of public involvement, The Florida Bar seeks a new member of the public to serve on its governing board.The board member will replace Royce Walden of Orlando, whose second two-year term expires June 2003.Since 1987, two public members have served on the Bar’s 52-member governing board, after the Supreme Court of Florida approved the organization’s request to have nonlawyer representation on the board. Only seven other state bars — Alaska, Arizona, California, North Carolina, Oregon, Texas, and Wisconsin — and the District of Columbia have public members on their governing boards.A screening committee of The Florida Bar Board of Governors has been appointed to review the applications for the public member position, conduct final interviews and make recommendations to the Bar’s governing board during its April meeting in Kissimmee. The board will then recommend three persons to the Supreme Court of Florida and the court will appoint one of the three nominees to the board. The Board of Governors oversees the Bar’s lawyer discipline program, continuing legal education programs, legislative activities, and the overall administration of The Florida Bar.In addition to the two public members on the Board of Governors, one-third of all members of the 81 local grievance committees which hear complaints against attorneys are nonlawyers, as are one-third of the members of the 32 committees which oversee the Bar’s unlicensed practice of law investigations. These committees report to the Board of Governors, which in turn reports to the Supreme Court.Board members average 200-300 hours per year on Bar business depending on committee assignments. Although attorney members of the Bar’s governing board pay all expenses related to their attendance at six board meetings and other events held each year, nonlawyer board members are reimbursed for “reasonable travel and related expenses for attending official bar functions.”The new board member will serve a two-year term commencing June 27. Public members are not allowed by rule to serve more than two consecutive terms. Most of the Bar’s board is apportioned according to Florida’s 20 judicial circuits, with attorney members elected by lawyers in their locality. There are four additional out-of-state representatives. The other public member currently serving on The Florida Bar’s Board of Governors is Dr. Vivian Hobbs, Ph.D., of Tallahassee.Persons interested in serving as a public member may obtain the application form from the Bar’s Web site at or call The Florida Bar at (850) 561-5600, ext. 6802 to request an application to be mailed. Completed applications should be mailed to John F. Harkness, Jr.,Bar executive director, 651 E. Jefferson Street, Tallahassee, 32399-2300.

Grades: Wisconsin defense holding steady

first_imgShooting 66 percent from the field, Ryan Evans has put up 29 points for the Badgers through their first two games of the NCAA Tournament.[/media-credit]More than a week after March Madness launched, many Badger fans were left feeling surprisingly pleased with their team’s performance through the first two rounds.After bringing down a sharpshooting Vanderbilt team loaded with seniors – a popular underdog pick for a deep NCAA tournament run – Wisconsin advanced to the Sweet 16 for the second consecutive year. With the 60-57 victory Saturday, the Badgers now have a date with the Syracuse Orange, a No. 1 seed, to earn a coveted spot in the Elite Eight for the first time in seven years.Prior to knocking off the SEC Tournament champions, Bo Ryan’s squad routed its first round opponent, 13th-seeded Montana, in 73-49 fashion. After stringing together two of its better performances of the year, UW will attempt to take down a deep and talented Syracuse team that will be playing without 7-footer Fab Melo, the anchor of its vaunted 2-3 defense.Offense – 4 of 5The Badgers displayed typical inconsistency, shooting the ball with a great performance against Montana and a rather unremarkable one against the more athletic Commodores. Sinking 52.6 percent of their shots from beyond the arc and just under 48 percent from the floor against the Grizzlies, Wisconsin’s hot shooting allowed it to build a comfortable lead early and score an uncharacteristically high 73 points.Against a veteran Vanderbilt team that opened the game with four seniors on the floor, a team-wide effort left UW with a less impressive 41.8 percentage from the field and 30.3 percent clip from three-point range. Five players suiting up for the cardinal and white ended in double figures – Jordan Taylor led with 14 – in a game where forward Mike Bruesewitz scored at least 10 points for the first time since a Feb. 4 loss to Ohio State.Wisconsin’s swing offense operated smoothly against an overmatched Montana defense, with Ryan Evans leading the charge with 18 points. Taylor complimented Evans’ offensive performance with 17 points of his own, going 6-of-10 from the field and 3-for-5 from long distance.Defense – 4.5 of 5Despite boasting a pair of seniors in John Jenkins and Jeffery Taylor who average 19.9 and 16.1 points per contest, respectively, Vanderbilt’s two stars were held to just 22 points combined at The Pit.In one of their best defensive efforts of the year against a deep, quick Commodores backcourt, Wisconsin limited its opponent to an ice-cold 26.3 conversion rate from beyond the arc and 43.5 percent from the floor. A team that, much like the Badgers, often lives and dies by its three-point shooting, the SEC Tournament champion’s long-range shooting was more than 12 percentage points below its season average.Additionally, UW managed to control the pace and keep Vanderbilt from scoring 60 points for the first time since Feb. 22.In their first-round matchup with the Grizzlies, the Badgers’ defensive numbers shone even brighter, as they limited the Big Sky Conference champions to just 49 points in the contest. Wisconsin – who ranks top in the nation in scoring defense, surrendering an average of 52.9 points – never allowed Montana to build a rhythm shooting the ball.En route to keeping the Grizzlies below 40 percent shooting from all areas of the hardwood, forward Jared Berggren recorded seven blocks, setting a Wisconsin record for most blocks in an NCAA tournament game while anchoring a Badger defense that won the battle on the glass by a 37-21 margin.Bench – 2.5 of 5It was a rather unremarkable stretch among bench players for a team often criticized for its lack of depth, as the Badgers received only 22 points from non-starters in the wins that landed them in the Sweet 16.Although streaky guard Ben Brust hit two critical three-pointers that helped battle off a surging Vanderbilt late in the second half, he accounted for all 11 of UW’s bench points. Senior Rob Wilson, the Badgers’ most consistent bench scorer lately, missed all six of his shots and was scoreless despite his 23 minutes on the floor. Similarly, freshman Frank Kaminsky struggled to find his rhythm and missed all four of his attempts.It was a familiar story against Montana, as only two Badgers – Wilson and Brust – who left their seat on the sideline managed to create some offense. The senior guard, though converting on just one of his three attempts from beyond the arc, was 2-of-5 from the field and sunk all five of his free throws.Brust scored his only points on a late three-pointer after the game was decided and picked up three fouls despite only seeing 14 minutes of play.Player of the Week – Ryan EvansAfter leading UW’s scoring effort against Montana with 18 points and eight rebounds, Evans followed up with 11 points to go along with five rebounds against the Commodores, doing it while shooting an impressive 66 percent from the field over the two game stretch.While Taylor outscored the 6-foot-6 forward over the past two games, Evans proved more efficient with the ball in his hands as he continued to solidify his role as a great secondary scoring option to the Badgers’ senior point guard. Although his three-point shooting is still a work in progress, Evans went 2-for-4 from long distance against Montana and Vanderbilt on his way to scoring in double digits for the 14th consecutive game.Evans’ effort on the defensive side of the floor may have been of even greater value than his offensive production, as he played a central role in anchoring Wisconsin’s stingy defense. The redshirt junior’s greatest defensive test awaits this week against a Syracuse team loaded with experience and talent.last_img read more

One goal enough as Uganda Cranes tops Group E

first_imgCELEBRATIONS: Oloya (left) joins goal scorer Miya. PHOTOS KCCAUGGroup EUganda 1 Congo Brazzaville 0SundayEgypt v Ghana 7pmWhile many thought they should have scored more goals, Cranes captain Geoffrey Massa insists they did very well with the one shot past Congo Brazzaville.“Like I said before the match, all we need is a win. With the one goal we got, we got the win we needed and I am very satisfied,” Massa told the press, who wanted him to explain the many chances fluffed in the 2018 World Cup qualifier at Mandela National Stadium, Namboole.Uganda’s goal came early in the game, with a rampant Farouk Miya striking after a good combination with Luwagga Kizito in the 16th minute.Belgium-based Miya beat Wolfrigon Ngobo from inside the box  after passing unlocked the Congo defence.They did get some good chances after this, but the strikers, Massa especially, failed to find the net when it looked easier to score.Coach Milutin Micho Sredojevic weighed in by insisting Cranes results actually speak for themselves, saying Congo Brazzaville are not walkovers and should be respected. “Our aim was to create at least five chances, which we did. We knew we would miss some of them,” Micho said. He said thorough preparation was key to the current Cranes winning run, and said the team was still growing into the World Cup qualification matches.To those criticizing his team despite the win, Micho said, “you have a right not to like us, but please respect us.”He however lamented the poor turn up of fans. “I am not happy to see about 10,000 fans in the stadium to support a team that has qualified for the African Cup of Nations for the first time in a long time,” he said.The result put Cranes top of Group E.Standings  P W D L F A PtsUganda         2   1    1  0 1 0  4Egypt              1   1    0  0 2 1  3Ghana           1   0   1   0 0 0  1Congo             2   0   0  2 0 1   0LIVE FEED#MujjeTulumbe TweetsShare on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2last_img read more

Ohio State recruit shot 2nd time since April

first_imgYOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP)—An Ohio State football recruit was shot and wounded twice in two months, and authorities believe the cases are unrelated. Jamel Turner, 18, was left in critical condition by a shooting early Saturday in Youngstown. A 17-year-old girl was killed in the shooting.Police Capt. Rod Foley said the case apparently was unrelated to a drive-by shooting on April 16, when Turner was wounded. Foley declined to discuss a possible motive for the latest shooting, but said Turner and Tracy Banks, who was killed, apparently were intended victims of a shooter who fired from outside a house.Police were trying to determine Turner’s relationship with Banks.Foley said detectives had identified a possible suspect, but no charges had been filed.Turner was taken to St. Elizabeth Health Center, where he was listed in critical condition Saturday night with multiple wounds. Officials at the health center didn’t immediately return calls seeking a condition update for Turner.In the April shooting, Turner was riding in a vehicle with two others on Interstate 680 in Youngstown when a dark car with tinted windows pulled alongside their vehicle and began shooting. Turner sustained a gunshot wound to the lower left ankle and another to the right hip.Turner was a defensive standout for Ursuline High School in his hometown of Youngstown, but was declared academically ineligible last August. He enrolled in Fork Union Military Academy in Virginia, but left earlier this year.Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel issued a statement over the weekend saying that he was praying for Turner. Shelly Poe, a spokeswoman for the football program, said there would be no further comment Monday.Asked if Turner was still a recruit in good standing, Poe said, “He signed in February. That’s really where that is. Until he would report to campus we can’t really, I mean we don’t grade them by one way or another.”last_img read more
