Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service] Though far from a good year, 2019 was a statistically better year for New Orleans, Louisiana: The city recorded 119 homicides, the fewest in nearly 50 years, further distancing itself from its reputation just a decade ago as the unofficial “murder capital” of the United States.But the recent decrease in deaths has not alleviated the human toll that violence, particularly gun violence, takes each year on the people of New Orleans. They still are murdered at a higher rate than residents of all but three other major U.S. cities. Their deaths still leave holes in the lives of surviving loved ones and the community.And their names continue to be added to the “murder board” at St. Anna’s Episcopal Church. Since 2007, the congregation has maintained and updated this memorial list outside the church in the city’s Tremé neighborhood just north of the French Quarter. The memorial now contains more than a thousand names of people killed in and near the city, and even with homicides decreasing, more than 100 new names are posted each year.“That’s still an intolerable amount,” the Rev. Bill Terry, rector of St. Anna’s, told Episcopal News Service by phone. “We have a large part of our community that lives in a deep longing and a deep and profound sadness,” he said, and the church’s lament for that loss of life transcends any public policy success extolled by government leaders.The permanent memorial at St. Anna’s, covering a fence next to the church, lists each victim’s name, age, date of death and method – “shot” is the most common – but it only covers 2007 to 2012 because the congregation ran out of room on the fence. So, the current year’s homicide victims are written in marker on a separate board attached to a nearby church wall. The congregation envisions a new memorial large enough to commemorate all the victims, by representing them as a sky full of stars on the ceiling inside the church.Joel Dyer calls it “Stargazers.” He is the local artist who came up with the idea for the new memorial and now is trying to raise money to install it at St. Anna’s, where he has been a parishioner for most of the past decade. The ceiling of the nave and sanctuary would be painted blue, and 2 1/2-inch gold stars would be arranged in a grid, with enough estimated room to memorialize up to 5,000 murder victims.“I thought ‘Stargazers’ would imply a little hope,” Dyer, 74, said in an interview with ENS, adding, “our hope is to keep our kids off that ceiling.”Artist Joel Dyer, a parishioner at St. Anna’s Episcopal Church, sketched the design on the left for a future Stargazers’ tribute to murder victims, which would be displayed on the ceiling of the church, shown in the photo on the right provided by Luigi Mandile.One star will shine particularly bright in the eyes of this diverse congregation on Esplanade Avenue. Robert Atkins, 21 years old when he was shot and killed on Oct. 20, 2016, grew up attending the church and had served as an acolyte since he was 5 – a “perfect little boy,” his mother, Althea Atkins-McCall, remembered in a phone interview.Robert Atkins, 21, was shot and killed in October 2016, less than two weeks after this photo was taken while he was attending his mother’s wedding at St. Anna’s. Photo courtesy of Althea Atkins-McCallThe connection between her family and St. Anna’s goes beyond a name on a memorial. “It’s a little deeper for me because we actually were very much involved in the church,” Atkins-McCall said, and though she now lives in Louisiana’s capital city of Baton Rouge, she still has “just a great appreciation for the level of commitment that Father Terry has for the community and the members of his church.”Atkins’ murder remains unsolved, and his mother is grateful for ways “of keeping my son’s name alive.” Though his killing was too recent to be included on the permanent list at St. Anna’s, Atkins-McCall donated a bench in his name that was installed next to the sidewalk in front of the church memorial, so anyone who visits can sit in contemplation and remembrance.Terry had only been rector at St. Anna’s a couple years when Hurricane Katrina dealt a devastating blow to New Orleans in 2005. Once a city of nearly 500,000 people, New Orleans lost more than half its population in Katrina’s aftermath as it struggled with recovery efforts, but the number of homicides remained high. When murders reached 209 in 2007, the city’s estimated per capita murder rate topped that of any other major American city.Early in 2007, thousands of people marched in New Orleans to protest the killings and what they saw as public officials’ inadequate response. After the march, Terry began talking to a deacon about what St. Anna’s could do. They came up with the idea of publicly naming each of the victims, and “we’ve really been doing that ever since,” Terry said.In addition to writing the names on a display outside the church, St. Anna’s began incorporating a reading of the latest victims’ names into Sunday services, which typically draw about 120 worshippers. Church staff members scour local media outlets each week for reports of killings and follow up with authorities to obtain information about the victims.Other churches asked to receive the names compiled by St. Anna’s, and now the lists are sent out every week by email, usually on Thursdays. They include people killed outside the city limits, in communities that are part of greater New Orleans.The church is “literally on the border between two worlds,” Terry said, between some of the city’s wealthiest neighborhoods and those struggling with deep poverty. That intersection is reflected in the congregation, which Terry said includes parishioners from a mix of backgrounds, many of them middle-class or low-income residents.Crime is driven by a range of factors, and fluctuations in crime rates defy easy explanations. Terry, though, noted that extreme poverty, an affordable housing shortage and limited job opportunities continue to plague New Orleans, and the local black community, which had made up a significant majority of city residents, has been greatly diminished since Katrina.The “murder board” at St. Anna’s Episcopal Church is only big enough to fit the hundreds of names of homicide victims from 2007 to 2012. The church is looking for a long-term solution to memorialize all the victims since 2007. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News ServiceThe church regularly gets visitors to the homicide memorial. Terry recalls a police sergeant who spent about 15 minutes one day looking over the names before approaching the rector in tears: “I saw four of my high school friends on your murder board,” he said.Mere numbers can dehumanize crime victims, Terry said, and “most of these people live in poverty. They have no memorials.” He thinks simply sharing their names is a step toward giving them some dignity in death, though the congregation doesn’t stop there. St. Anna’s also supports neighborhood children and their families through its Anna’s Place program, and it is raising money now for an ambitious expansion of those efforts called the Dodwell House.“The ‘murder board’ is a memorial. It’s a public spiritual statement to the world that life maters. But that’s not good enough,” Terry said. “We have to become disrupters in cycles of violence, so the Gospel begins to take shape in the community.”As the “murder board” grew to include more than a thousand names, the list stretched across the church’s fence, eventually running out of room. Terry said one option the congregation is considering is to reinstall the permanent memorial so it is configured to fit nearly 3,000 names, but that still would only hold the names of victims through 2017. The longer-term solution is the Stargazers project.The ceiling of the church is large enough to accommodate stars for all the victims since 2007. Plans also include a computer kiosk, so visitors can search victims’ names and find where on the ceiling each victim’s memorial star is displayed.And there will be room for the memorial to expand as more residents of the New Orleans area succumb to deadly violence.“It can be discouraging because it’s so common,” Atkins-McCall said.Her family was fortunate in many ways. She and her family immigrated to the United States from Guyana in 1989 and settled in New Orleans, where her mother made sure they attended church, first at Christ Church Cathedral and then at St. Anna’s.Robert Atkins, left, poses for a photo with the Rev. Bill Terry at St. Anna’s Episcopal Church, where Terry presided at the wedding of Atkins’ mother. Atkins had been active in the congregation for most of his childhood. Photo courtesy of Althea Atkins-McCall“We had this very strong Christian-based upbringing,” she said, and she instilled the same in her son, who was born in 1995.Robert Atkins was “everything you wanted in a kid,” she said, but tragedy struck early in his life. His father, who had been Atkins-McCall’s high school sweetheart, was shot and killed a few months after their son’s first birthday.Despite that loss, Robert grew into a gifted student who loved art and football, his mother said, and St. Anna’s “became home and became part of our family.”Atkins was taking a break from college in 2016 and working an overnight security job when he was murdered. He would call his mother after getting home from his shift, and when he didn’t call that morning, she grew worried. Later that day, she learned from his girlfriend that he had been shot in a car, pushed into the street and left for dead.The killing was all the more jarring because it came at a time of celebration: Less than two weeks earlier, Robert Atkins had been all smiles while attending his mother’s wedding at St. Anna’s. Terry, who presided at the wedding, later led a candlelight vigil with the family at the scene of Atkins’ murder.Atkins-McCall still holds out hope that police will find who killed her son, and she sometimes checks in with investigators, to see if they have any new information and to remind them that she still wants answers.When she gets discouraged, she looks back on her son’s last Instagram post, which she said seemed both to foreshadow his death and to show that his faith remained strong. The photo appeared to be of a page from a Christian devotional, leading with the sentence, “You are on the right path.”“I’m behind you Lord!” Atkins wrote in the post. “You gotta trust him and trust yourself. Your time is NEAR.”“He was an awesome kid,” Atkins-McCall said. “Whatever God placed him here to do, it was accomplished.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

“There were a lot of new boys in the squad but we performed as a team, that’s why we overcame South Africa today,” Fiji skipper Jerry Tuwai said.Fiji beat Canada 40-7 in the quarter-finals before seeing off Ireland 38-12 in the semis, while South Africa edged New Zealand 14-5 in the quarters and England 29-19 in their last-four play-off.Fiji’s hopes of a fourth straight tournament win took an early blow when Sevuloni Mocenacagi was yellow carded from the kick-off for taking Justin Geduld out in the air.South Africa immediately made their numerical advantage count, Stedman Gans scything through the stretched defence for the opening try, Geduld converting.Fiji did well, however, to absorb the Blitzbok pressure when a man down, and showed just why they average just 23 passes per match such is the efficacity of their strike power.Tuisova, also part of the Fiji team that won Olympic gold in Rio in 2016 but not a regular on the circuit, muscled his way past some weak defence for a try, converted by Amenoni Nasilasila, to pull the Pacific islanders level.Paula Dranisinukula was the final recipient of an amazing display of off-loading rugby started by Semi Radradra, crossing for Fiji’s second try with Nasilasila making no mistake with a conversion in front of the posts.The Boks hit back when Ruhan Nel expertly took a high pass one-handed and rode a tackle by Dranisinukula to cross in the corner, Geduld missing the extras.But Fiji responded perfectly, Jasa Veremalua skilfully exchanging passes with Josua Vakurunabili to go over for Fiji’s third try, Nasilasila’s conversion taking the Fijians out to 21-12.Bok Zain Davids bounced through a couple of desperate tackles for a fine individual try to set up a dramatic finale, but Fiji won the restart and safely ran the ball out to seal the win.“I found it tough today but I got help from the boys and was hanging in there. I know we trust each other and finally we get the win,” said free-running Fiji back and man-of-the-final Radradra, who is quitting Top 14 club Toulon for Bordeaux-Begles next season.Ireland, a “non-core team” in their maiden Series appearance, marked a remarkable weekend by edging England 21-19 to take third place.Jordan Conroy scored a first-half brace of tries for the Irish, including one from 90 metres out, before Dan Bibby hit back with two of his own.England speedster Dan Norton then took his record career try tally to 295 when he crossed early in the second half.But Conroy showed all his gas by sprinting away for his hat-trick, Mark Roche nailing a tricky conversion to seal a memorable win.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Fiji lead the World Rugby Sevens Series standings with one leg of the competition to play © AFP / OLLY GREENWOODLONDON, United Kingdom, Jun 3 – Toulon winger Josua Tuisova scored a try to help fire Fiji to a 21-17 victory over arch-rivals South Africa to claim the London leg of the World Rugby Seven Series.With just the Paris leg of the Series to play, next weekend, Fiji now stand atop the standings on 167 points, with the Blitzboks in second on 160. New Zealand sit in third on 133.
Roberto Di Matteo faces competition from Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers for the signing of Theo Walcott from Arsenal, according to The Sun.It is claimed that Chelsea manager Di Matteo plans to make a formal offer for Walcott, but Rodgers is said to be desperate to capture him and plans to finance a £15m bid by selling striker Andy Carroll.The Sun also suggest Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich’s willingness to spend big this summer is leading other Premier League clubs to splash the cash in an attempt to keep up.Meanwhile, the Daily Mail say Chelsea captain John Terry has been told the FA will make a decision this week as they consider charging him with making a racial insult towards QPR’s Anton FerdinandThe Mail also say Chelsea are among the clubs interested in Birmingham’s 13-year-old sensation Foday Nabay and that Blues forward Daniel Sturridge can play in the Olympics after being given the all-clear following his bout of viral meningitis.This page is regularly updated.

Embed from Getty ImagesChelsea boss Antonio Conte was asked about a number of issues at his news conference ahead of Monday’s game against Middlesbrough. Here’s some of what the Italian had to say. Conte on Cesc Fabregas“I think he is playing very well this season. His level is very high, with great commitment, work-rate and behaviour for the whole season.“He is a top player and if he starts the game or comes in during the games I think he is always decisive for us.” On whether he can keep Fabregas happy at the club“I like to underline the concept: I must not keep happy a player – we must win.“I think that my target is to put in the mind a winning mentality – it doesn’t exist to keep the players happy.“I don’t want this, I want players who are ready to fight and put themselves in the team to win together. This is very important.” On reports Diego Costa could move to China“I don’t know. I don’t know about this. I think now it is very important that every single player – every single person who works for Chelsea – to be focused on the present.“The present is very important for us. The present is more important than the future. It is important to be focused, to be concentrated, to prepare in the right way for these five games until the end of the season.“I am not worried about this because I see my players every day and I am seeing the right concentration and focus.“The important thing is our target. Speculation to me is not important.” On Chelsea’s injury concerns“Thibaut Courtois trained today and yesterday. I don’t see a problem about him.“We are struggling with two situations, with David Luiz and N’Golo Kante, but there are three more days before the Middlesbrough game. I have the time to make the best decision about them.” On social media policy“I am a disaster in this situation, with social media. This topic is not simple to face.“I think every person must use it in the right way, with balance. When you use social media and you don’t have the right balance it is always dangerous.“You must use it in the right way. I don’t like to ban something but you have to have the right balance.” On facing Middlesbrough“There are two teams with desperation to find the result. Middlesbrough have to win if they want to stay here (the Premier League) next season. The same for us is that we have to win. For this reason I think Monday will be a good game.”See also:Conte on Pedro, Morata, Wenger’s comments and Chelsea’s search for playersConte on Bakayoko, Hazard, Pedro’s setback and facing SpursConte on Costa, youngsters, Stoke, Zouma and Chelsea’s ‘big challenge’ Ads by Revcontent Trending Articles Urologists: Men, Forget the Blue Pill!

Spain’s coach Vicente Del Bosque is a largely unheralded part of their success, but his ability to work with a squad of superstars and to get the best out of them has resulted in a stunning run of success. During 2009, the Swiss played nine matches, won four of them, drew four, and lost only one. Spanish-speaking football fans might want to follow Group H. Apart from the obvious attraction of the world’s top-ranked team, it contains two other Spanish speaking sides: Honduras and Chile. Switzerland The current European champions are blessed with talent and depth at every position. The vast majority of their players ply their trade in Spain, which helps when it comes to preparation. Those who are stationed elsewhere are with top European clubs. Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo material The only thing standing between the Spaniards and their making a big impact in South Africa is their previous failures in big Fifa tournaments, but many would argue that those days are now over following their victory in Euro 2008. Chile The world’s number one ranked team, Spain had their 35-match unbeaten run shockingly ended in the semi-finals of the 2009 Fifa Confederations Cup by the USA. However, that was the only setback they suffered during the year as they won the other 15 matches they played, scoring 47 goals and conceding only 12 along the way. Those excellent results earned Spain the title as Fifa Team of the Year. The Hondurans have some real class up front, with Genoa forward David Suazo and the very experienced Carlos Pavon whose record by the end of 2009 stood at an astonishing 57 goals in 96 internationals. Chile enjoyed an impressive qualifying campaign for South Africa 2010, finishing second among the 10 South American teams, behind only five-time champions Brazil, ranked second in the world. Spain’s play is composed and assured – one of the results of winning becoming a habit. Their defence is solid and unyielding, their midfielders talented as a unit and able to create opportunities, and their strikers have a cutting edge. They are, in a word, complete. Since that time they have continued to wrack up victory after victory and there has been no sign that they will slow down any time soon. Their team is sprinkled with experience, but overall they are astonishingly young, although many of their youngesters have played for some years on the big stage of the Uefa Champions League. End of 2009 Fifa ranking: 1Appearances: 12Best result: fourth place 1950Players to watch: goalkeeper Iker Casillas, defender Carlos Puyol, midfielders Xavi and Cesc Fabregas, strikers David Villa and Fernando Torres Spain End of 2009 Fifa ranking: 18Appearances: 8Best result: quarterfinals 1934, 1938, 1954Players to watch: defender Ludovic Magnin, midfielder Hakin Yakin, forwards Alexander Frei and Blaise N’Kufo Their star player is striker Alexander Frei. He is also captain of the Swiss and carries much of the burden of their hopes in South Africa. By the end of 2009, he had scored an outstanding 40 goals in 73 internationals. It is a record that places him in elite company. For instance, a player like 2008 Fifa World Player of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 22 times in 68 internationals. End of 2009 Fifa ranking: 37Appearances: 1Best result: first round 1982Players to watch: strikers Carlos Pavon and David Suazo, midfielders Wilson Palacios, Julio Leon and Amado Guevara 2009 was a busy year for Honduras. They played 24 matches, winning 15 of them, losing eight and drawing only one. They had particular problems with the USA, playing the Americans four times and losing all four. Chile is a young team with few players having reached 30 years of age. Yet, despite their relative youth, they’re experienced playing away from home, both in South American qualifying and in matches in preparation for the World Cup. In midfield, captain Amado Guevara will be one of the most experienced players in the tournament, with over 130 caps to his name. He is also a useful goal scorer in support of the strikers. Together with Torino’s Julio Leon and Wilson Palacios of Tottenham Hotspur, Guevara gives Honduras a strong midfield. In their only previous visit to the World Cup finals in 1982, Honduras surprised by drawing 1-1 with Spain and eventual group winners Northern Ireland before a 1-0 loss to Yugoslavia sent them out of the tournament. Once again, in 2010, they have a defence that is usually miserly and concedes on average just a goal a game. During the World Cup, much will depend on a trio of former Colo-Colo players who have since moved on to top European clubs: Matias Fernandez, now with Sporting Lisbon; Humberto Suazo, now with Real Zaragoza; and Alexis Sanchez, now with Udinese. Fernandez provides quality in the midfield and Suazo and Sanchez the finishing up front. Honduras End of 2009 Fifa ranking: 37Appearances: 7Best result: third place 1962Players to watch: goalkeeper and captain Claudio Bravo, midfielder Matias Fernandez, forwards Humberto Suazo and Alexis Sanchez Honduras secured a place in South Africa by finishing third in Concacaf qualifying behind the United States and Mexico after four rounds of qualifying. Along the way, they topped a tricky third round group also featuring Mexico, Jamaica and Canada. Switzerland booked their place in South Africa after topping a competitive qualifying group that also included Greece (which went on to secure a place in South Africa), Latvia, and Israel. In 10 matches, they conceded only eight goals. Speaking to Fifa.com, Hitzfeld commented: “If my father had known I’d be this successful as Switzerland coach – not as Bayern Munich or Borussia Dortmund coach – he’d have been overjoyed. It’s the place we call home, you see.” During 2009, they played 14 games, won eight of them, lost three and drew three. Those games included an outing against South Africa in Polokwane which Chile convincingly won 2-0 with South African-born winger Mark Gonzalez playing a starring role. The Swiss are coached by Ottmar Hitzfeld, who has won 18 major titles during his coaching career. Most of that time was spent coaching German giants Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich but, interestingly, he got his start in coaching in Switzerland with FC Zug in 1983. He coached in the country until 1991, also taking charge of FC Aarau and Grasshoppers Zurich. After a strong showing in qualifying and having last made it to the World Cup in 1998, when striker Marcelo Salas led the way, Chile will have high expectations of themselves. They’re a dark horse team that deserves some respect.
