New White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany to make her Debut

first_imgThe new White House press secretary will take to the iconic podium on Friday and hold her first formal briefing by someone other than the president for reporters in more than a year.Kayleigh McEnany who had been the spokeswoman for President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign, and who is a frequent guest on the South Florida Morning Show, took over the job last month. Former Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders discontinued the practice of speaking for the President in March of last year, and her successor, Stephanie Grisham, did not hold any briefings. Grisham was also acting ast the First Lady Melania Trump’s press secretary.The president himself has spoken regularly from the podium during the coronavirus pandemic, and often holds court in the Oval Office or on the South Lawn with Marine One helicopter blades spinning in the background.McEnany is a University of Miami alum and a Harvard Law School graduate and she expected to brief reporters this afternoon.last_img read more

The Looney Rule

first_imgMay Day, May Day, red phone ringin’, red phone singin’, head coach going down, no head coach gone down. No, folks this is not one of the scenes from the Black cinema classic, “Pootytang” that I happened to steal from the cutting room floor a few years ago.This is some reality TV type craziness. Pitt hired Mike Haywood, who led Miami (Ohio) to the MAC championship during the 2010 season after Dave Wannestedt resigned as the Panthers head football coach under duress. Now less than a month after he was hired as the first African-American head men’s football coach in the history of the university, Haywood has been unceremoniously dismissed as a result of some serious “felonious” domestic battery charges levied against him.Many Black folks on the streets of the city of Pittsburgh were expressing anger and frustration as a result of the firing of the now former “hire.” You cannot really say that he was Pitt’s coach. Heck the man never coached a game.If Mr. Haywood is guilty of the violations that he is accused of and the “glove” does fit, not only is his firing justified; is it possible that the assistant coaches that followed him to the University and who are now unemployed have the right to file a civil suit(s) against him for punitive damages?Please take a closer look at the lives he has damaged behind his own selfish actions and lack of spiritual, mental, moral and physical discipline.Haywood had the audacity to say this about his dismissal; “It isn’t fair. The truth will eventually come out.”No “mad” Mike; what isn’t fair is the stress thrust upon a group of assistant coaches not realizing that they were being loyal to a master of stupidity. Think about the men who sold houses to buy houses having to probably look for apartments, uprooting their families just because you fooled them into believing in you.Mike Haywood strutted into the Steel City crowing like a cock in a henhouse on Easter but he exited the Fort Pitt tunnels stumbling, fumbling and mumbling without ever coaching one single game. His “future” body of work now lies cold on the pavement of reality without life and the scene of the crime only outlined by the “chalk talk” of his misrepresentations.One former staffer with the university had this to say in the aftermath of Haywood’s dismissal. “I was very disappointed when they hired him. He was from a small school with only two years’ experience and the first was miserable, so he only had one year of being a proven winner as a head coach. He did have a few years as an assistant but he never stayed anywhere very long to prove himself. I feel sorry for him. He needs to try to land a job as an assistant again somewhere; maybe Charlie Weiss will give him something at Florida.”For his stupidity Mike Haywood does not deserve another coaching position, at least not in the near future. How does; “welcome to McDonalds how may I help you, sound to you?” No Mike wait on the next person, I’m still looking.(Aubrey Bruce can be reached at: abruce@new­pittsburgh­courier.com or 412-583-6741.)last_img read more

Nicklaus confident Woods will break majors mark

first_imgNicklaus went through several major droughts in his career.He didn’t win for more than three years between the 1967 U.S. Open and his next title at the 1970 British Open. He went through a similar stretch after his win at the 1975 PGA Championship, not winning major No. 15 until the 1978 British Open.Of course, Nicklaus’ longest major-less run was a nearly six-year period until his dramatic final title at the 1986 Masters when he was 46 years old.Nicklaus said one major difference between his run and Woods’ chase is the national attention. Nicklaus didn’t even consider the historic context of his run until 1970 when a golf writer mentioned he had just won No. 10 — and the fourth of his six green jackets — at the 1972 Masters and trailed then-leader Bobby Jones by three.“I never worried about it,” Nicklaus said. “I wasn’t thinking about records at the time.”Woods’ goal was crystal clear from the time he began and has been a focus of media and fans. His drought is one of golf’s most captivating stories and something he won’t escape until he breaks through again,  Nicklaus said.“Each time you don’t win, obviously, makes it harder,” Nicklaus said.These days, the 73-year-old Nicklaus spends most of his recreation time on the tennis court  instead of the golf course. He said tennis is everything that golf is not for the casual player — quick, inexpensive and easy to learn.Nicklaus said golf is losing patrons because it takes too long to play, is difficult to pick up and can be costly.“We’re losing people and need to find a way to stop that,” he said.Besides, Nicklaus needs the free time to keep up with his 22 grandchildren, who seem to have an athletic event for him to attend nearly every day. His grandson, Nick O’Leary, is tight end for No. 8 Florida State tight and he caught three touchdowns in the Seminoles’ season-opening, 41-13, victory at Pittsburgh earlier this month. Nicklaus said he attends all the Florida State games and expects to be back in South Carolina next month then the Seminoles play at No. 3 Clemson on Oct. 19.Nicklaus said on his last visit to his college Ohio State, he spoke with Buckeyes football coach Urban Meyer and told him he’d already gotten tickets to the BCS title game in Pasadena, Calif., next January.When Meyer protested about jinxing Ohio State’s title run, Nicklaus joked, “Urban, I bought the tickets for Florida State. I hope you get there,’” he said. “He got a big kick out of that.”Should the Seminoles and Buckeyes meet in the Rose Bowl, there won’t be any split loyalties.“I’ll root for my grandson,” Nicklaus said.

(AP Photo/Charles Rex Arbogast)by Pete IacobelliAP Sports Writer  CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Jack Nicklaus remains confident Tiger Woods will surpass his mark of 18 major titles despite facing a level of competition the Golden Bear says as good as any that’s ever been in golf. Nicklaus was in Charleston for the opening of a pizza restaurant, in which he and son Gary are investors. Nicklaus said he’s never wavered from believing the 37-year-old Woods will eventually pull out of his majors drought — he hasn’t won one since the 2008 U.S. Open — and win the five titles necessary to move past NicklausThese days, Woods “has as many good players as we’ve ever had in the game,” Nicklaus said.With recent major champions like Rory McIlroy, Adam Scott and Phil Mickelson playing top-level golf, the chances of one player dominating several majors in a short time as Woods did at times in achieving his 14 titles becomes less likely, Nicklaus said.Still, Nicklaus doesn’t waste much time worrying about holding on to his achievement.“If you look at it realistically, Tigers’ probably got another 10 years of top golf,” Nicklaus said. “That’s 40 majors. Can he win five of them? I think he probably will.”last_img read more
