Meet the Court: Justice Harry Lee Anstead

first_imgMeet the Court: Justice Harry Lee Anstead March 1, 2002 Jennifer Krell Davis Regular News Meet the Court: Justice Harry Lee Anstead [Editor’s Note: This is the fourth installment in a series of brief profiles on the justices of the Florida Supreme Court as produced by the Bar’s Public Information and Bar Services Department. These profiles are to let Bar members and others get to know each justice as an individual.] Bar Public Information CoordinatorAlthough a Florida native, Justice Harry Lee Anstead’s maternal great-grandparents came to America to escape the great Irish potato famine and settled in Ohio.Justice Anstead loves to travel with his family, and has gone back to Ireland to research his roots. He and his family also enjoy doing home exchanges, mainly in Europe, but also in Canada and the U.S., too.“We go over and we are in a German’s home in Bavaria, a Frenchman’s home in France, or an Irishman’s home in Ireland and so on, and they come and stay in our home,” Anstead said. “My children make friends in the neighborhoods where we stay, so we now have a host of friends overseas, and now when our children travel they stay at these persons’ homes.”For stress relief, he also enjoys sports, including running, tennis, and basketball. Justice Anstead said his family “has always been my retreat, and travel has been a large part of that. But physical activity, as a poor kid growing up in a poor neighborhood in Jacksonville, the parks, the playing fields were my retreat, and they were a great place to grow up.. . . I grew up playing every kind of sport imaginable.”He has even returned to that neighborhood to play alumni basketball games at Andrew Jackson High School, although he admits that when playing against the high school’s exceptional current team, the young ones are handicapped so the alumni team has a chance.In law school, Anstead said, his relationships with his teachers were his most treasured experience.“I had sort of a double bonus as I started law school at American University in Washington, D.C., and it was at a particularly exciting time in our history.” Anstead started law school just a couple of weeks after John F. Kennedy was sworn in as president, and was personally challenged by the president’s idealism, and challenged to “ask what you can do for your country.”At American and then later at the University of Florida, Anstead had a “warm relationship” with the teachers and faculty.“I was so very impressed with their willingness to meet with me on an informal basis and discuss the law,” he said. “I regarded that as an especially valuable gift, their willingness to visit with me about the great issues of the day.”While serving on the Fourth District Court of Appeal, Anstead carried forth the example of the approachable teacher and became one himself as a frequent lecturer at the Nova Southeastern University law school. He concedes that he wasn’t the strictest professor in the area of neatness in the briefs that he graded, due to his own hardship when he was in law school from having to write his own papers in longhand. His eyes lit up when he described his effort to get other court of appeal judges to go to Nova and hold oral arguments for the students.“Most of the judges on the district court of appeal went on to serve as judges for competitions at the law school, later becoming adjunct professors or lecturers,” he said.At the Supreme Court, Justice Anstead saw his service as an opportunity to “bring all of the components of the justice system together, the law schools, lawyers, and judges who represent across-the-board who is responsible for the justice system, and so then together for us to think about who we are and what we are about.” His way of doing that was to create a permanent Center for Professionalism at The Florida Bar, and to use that as the foundation for spreading the word around the state. As a show of explicit Supreme Court support, they created the Florida Supreme Court Commission on Professionalism to determine policy and oversee the professionalism activities around the state.“The opportunity to do that and to have it work has been one of my great satisfactions,” Anstead said. “I am enormously proud of the lawyers and judges throughout the state who have embraced that and are making a difference.”His desire to make a difference is patterned after his role models — J.F.K., Justice Alan Sundberg, and Gov. Reuben Askew.“Governor Askew really was a person similar to Kennedy in that he set very high standards and was very idealistic. There was virtually a moral force to his leadership that was very appealing,” Justice Anstead remembers. “He was willing to take on important issues for the citizens of Florida and lead regardless of the current popularity of the issues, and he did it in a very responsible way.”Anstead’s idealism continues in his vision for the future for the court and in the young lawyers that he sees working for the court. He says that they “keep him fresh,” and his idealism speaks to encourage the citizens of Florida just knowing he is there.last_img read more

Liverpool Host Man City in Tasty Top-of-table Clash

first_img“Teams that play like them can lose focus, but it never happened to City last year so they have all my respect. We have to be on our best to keep them away from our goal and create some chances in front of their goal.”Man City manager Pep Guardiola wants his side to keep improving when they play Liverpool, but insists no meeting between the sides is the same.“Every game is completely different,” he said. “In the Champions League, the first game we made a good performance except at the end of the first half. At home we made a very good game as well. It doesn’t matter that we lost.“They are a top side in the way they play. Liverpool beat a lot of sides not just City (last season). Liverpool is one of the two greatest teams in England. We try to be close to them. They are a top side and we try to be closer every time.”Liverpool are waiting on the fitness of midfielder Naby Keita after he was carried off with a back spasm during the Champions League loss to Napoli on Wednesday. Klopp was unsure whether he would be able to train ahead of the match.If Keita does not make it, Jordan Henderson is likely to start while Adam Lallana is back in full training after a groin problem.Kevin De Bruyne has a chance of featuring as Man City after returning to training following a knee injury.Benjamin Mendy is also back in contention after recovering from a foot problem but Ilkay Gundogan (hamstring) is doubtful and Fabian Delph is still on the sidelines. Claudio Bravo is a long-term absentee with a ruptured Achilles.Liverpool are unbeaten in 17 home matches against Man City in all competitions (W12 D5) since losing 2-1 at Anfield in the Premier League in May 2003.Man City have lost three matches against Liverpool in 2018, losing in the Premier League in January and two Champions League matches in April. They’ve only lost four matches in one calendar year against an opponent twice before, doing so against Grimsby Town in 1936 and Spurs in 1993.Both Liverpool and Man City are unbeaten in their opening seven Premier League games this season – this is the latest meeting between two unbeaten sides in the competition since 2011-12 when Man City and Newcastle met in their 12th game of the season.Liverpool have kept a clean sheet in each of their last eight Premier League home games – only in February 2007 (nine games) have they had a longer such run in the competition.Manchester City have lost only one of their last 25 Premier League away matches (W20 D4), though it was in this exact fixture last season (3-4).Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 24 home league games, the longest current run in the Premier League (W16 D8).City striker Sergio Aguero has played nine matches in all competitions at Anfield in his career (seven with Man City, two with Atletico Madrid), failing to score in any of those games, attempting just 11 shots and three on target.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Liverpool and Man City go head to head today as last season’s champions face their nearest challengers. The Reds got the better of Pep Guardiola’s champions in three out of their four meetings last season and the two are already early title favourites, with Man City currently first on goal difference.But Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes it is too early for title talk and has tipped this weekend’s opponents for another good season.“I don’t think it makes sense at this moment to think about the title. There are a lot of games to play,” Klopp said. “But, it is a home game against Man City and that is a tough one. Last year they were really special and I expect them to be like this again.last_img read more

Softball stays road

first_imgThe Wisconsin softball team returns to action Friday when ittravels to Tampa, Fla. for the USF- Louisville Slugger Tournament. Hosting the tournament is the University of South Florida, ateam that defeated Wisconsin 4-2 in 2007. Among the other participants in thesix-team tournament are South Carolina, Wright State, Georgia Tech and Hofstra.?We?re going to have to bring it,? head coach ChandelleSchulte said. ?It doesn?t really matter who our opponent is right now; whatmatters is what we?re doing on the field.? Wisconsin opens the tournament Friday with games againstSouth Carolina and Wright State. Saturday, the Badgers will play back-to-backgames versus Georgia Tech and tournament host USF. Finally, they will faceHofstra Sunday morning before returning to Madison.The Badgers (5-5) will look to build on last weekend?sLouisville Slugger Desert Classic, which saw them go 3-2, including a 7-5victory over Cal Poly in eight innings. ?We?ve got a good base,? senior catcher Joey Daniels said ofthe team. ?[However], we have a long way to go to build on that base. It?sgoing to take time to adjust to everybody.?One of the keys to Sunday?s win was the performance offreshman pitcher Kristyn Hansen who earned her first collegiate victory in 4.1innings of work.?[Kristyn?s] win was huge for the team,? Schulte said. ?Weneed a three-man rotation, so it was important for our pitching staff.?Leading the way so far for the Badgers offensively has beenDaniels and junior infielder Ricci Robben, with team highs in hits and runsbatted in, respectively.However, noticeably absent from this year?s team is formerBadger and Wisconsin?s career home run leader, Katie Hnatyk. Last season, as ajunior, Hnatyk led the Badgers in home runs, RBI and slugging percentage ? allof which set UW single-season records. ?Katie decided that softball just wasn?t her passionanymore,? Schulte said. ?She wanted to do some other things; I supported thatdecision, and I wish her the best of luck.?While it has been a blow to the Badgers offense, Schultebelieves it has helped in terms of the dynamic of the team and the opportunityto get some other players to play.With six freshmen and only two seniors on the roster, gettingnew players in the game has been integral to the Badgers? success so far thisseason. ?We have a lot of young players,? Robben said. ?[However],we?re adapting well as a team, and if we continue to play together, then wewill have success like we have been.?The team is young, and with that has come a degree ofperseverance. In fact, the Badgers are 4-3 in games in which their opponentscores first, and they?re 1-1 in extra inning games.?They just keep fighting,? Schulte said. ?They called them the?Rally Girls? this week because every time somebody would score, we wouldcounter score.?Also contributing to Wisconsin?s success through 10 gameshas been its pitching staff. In addition to Hansen?s performance against CalPoly, junior Leah Vanevenhoven and sophomore Letty Olivarez have combined for a4-5 record in 65.2 innings pitched, allowing 30 earned runs and striking out 64batters.?Our pitchers have stepped up a lot more than last year,?Robben said. ?They?re finishing the games and getting the job done in a muchbigger role.?With record-breaking snowfalls and single-digit temperaturesin Madison this winter, the Wisconsin softball team, as usual, has been forcedto practice indoors and travel to warmer climates for games thus far. ?We haven?t gotten the chance to play in the sun,? Danielssaid. ?It?s a big adjustment, and it?s a lot of games, but we?re used to it.?While the Badgers have had the opportunity to travel to Utahand Las Vegas in the season?s first two weeks, they hope to gain muchexperience and confidence as they continue to participate in tournaments overthe next month.?We may take some lumps early, but we hope to compete in the Big Ten,?Schulte said. ?Our hope is that tough competition early will help us in the BigTen.?last_img read more

FA: CUP Man City in FA Cup Stroll, Minnows Knock…

first_imgManchester City manager Pep Guardiola may have made eight changes from the team that beat Premier League leaders Liverpool on Thursday but still fielded a strong side for the visit of Championship side Rotherham, with Raheem Sterling, Riyad Mahrez and Gabriel Jesus all starting as playmaker Kevin De Bruyne returned from injury.Sterling made it 1-0 in the 12th minute and City then scored twice in the closing stages of the first half.Phil Foden, the England Under-21 international, got on the end of a cross from Ilkay Gundogan in the 43rd minute to score his first home goal for City before Rotherham defender Semi Ajayi turned the ball into his own net.Jesus made it 4-0 early in the second half before Mahrez, Nicolas Otamendi and Leroy Sane added further goals.“We are going to try and do well in every competition we play in,” Guardiola told the BBC.Turning to Foden, he added: “He missed some simple passes and he needs to be solid but he is young. When he attacks the central defenders he is incredible.”On Saturday, FA Cup holders Chelsea cruised to a 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest in what seems certain to have been Cesc Fabregas’s final match for the Blues.It was the same result as Manchester United beat Reading to make it five wins out of five under caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.Arsenal, the record 13-times FA Cup winners, won 3-0 at Blackpool, West Ham beat Birmingham 2-0 and Everton defeated Lincoln 2-1.Saturday also saw Championship club Bristol City beat top-flight basement club Huddersfield 1-0.Elsewhere, in an all-Premier League clash, Brighton won 3-1 away to south coast rivals Bournemouth.Second division Derby, managed by ex-England midfielder Frank Lampard, came from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 with Premier League strugglers Southampton.Newcastle were also held to a draw, 1-1 against second-tier Blackburn.For Leicester, it was Jamille Matt’s perfectly placed header after a pulsating run and cross from Robbie Willmott gave the Exiles the advantage against a side 74 places above them in the football leagues.Marc Albrighton hit the crossbar and Newport goalkeeper Joe Day produced a string of saves before Rachid Ghezzai smashed the Foxes level.However, Amond’s 85th-minute penalty after Albrighton’s handball sent the crowd into raptures as Newport produced one of the greatest results in their history.It is not an exaggeration to say Newport and Leicester are at completely opposite ends of the footballing scale. The year Leicester stunned the world under Claudio Ranieri to win the Premier League, Newport finished 22nd in League Two.The enormity of the achievement was shown in scenes of jubilation at full-time as Newport’s players sank to their knees and punched the air in delight while their fans went wild.Manager Michael Flynn hugged assistant Wayne Hatswell and his mentor, veteran manager Lennie Lawrence to celebrate a seismic result for the city.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Premier League champions Manchester City began their FA Cup campaign with a 7-0 thrashing of Rotherham yesterday but Fulham, battling to avoid relegation from English football’s top-flight, were beaten 2-1 by fourth-tier Oldham.Similarly, Newport County dumped 2016 Premier League champions Leicester City out of the competition at a raucous Rodney Parade thanks to Padraig Amond’s late penalty.Barnet ensured there would be a non-league presence in the fourth round with a 1-0 win away to second-tier Championship club Sheffield United.last_img read more

Uli Hoeness set to leave Bayern Munich role

first_img Source: RTE Uli Hoeness, the long-serving president of German soccer club Bayern Munich, is planning to retire and hand over his duties to a former Adidas Chief Executive in November, German daily Bild reported on Wednesday.Hoeness will not stand for reelection as club president and intends to also quit his role as supervisory board chairman, reported Germany’s largest selling newspaper Bild, which has proved credible in the past.According to the report, Hoeness intends to hand over his duties as president to former Adidas CEO Herbert Hainer, who is already a member of the club’s supervisory board.Bayern Munich was not immediately available for comment.World Cup and European Championship winner, Hoeness, served the club as a player from 1970-1979 and took over as general manager, and later president, immediately after his career.He is one of the most wealthy figures in German soccer.His departure, along with Oliver Kahn’s planned taking over as general manager starting in 2022, would mark the beginning of a new era at the club.Despite the club’s hegemony in Germany in winning seven Bundesliga titles in a row, Bayern have struggled to keep up at the international level.After last winning the Champions League in 2013, Bayern Munich have failed to reach the final again, with their elimination by eventual champion Liverpool in March in the round of 16 marking a recent low point.Hoeness, aged 67, was reelected in 2016 as club president after he had spent several months in prison for a multi-million euro tax evasion, a crime Hoeness admitted to German judges.last_img read more

Lakers’ GM Kupchak plans to build for future, even at expense of Kobe

first_img“It can turn quickly, but a lot of it is out of our control,” Kupchak said. “I’d love to be able to put together a young team that can win 55 games next year, but it’s not that easy.”That uncertainty recently prompted Magic Johnson to criticize vice president of player personnel Jim Buss, including not giving Kupchak enough autonomy to run the Lakers’ basketball operations. “I have the same authority I had with Dr. Buss,” Kupchak said, referring to the Lakers’ former owner that passed away in February 2013. “Jerry West had the same authority as Dr. Buss. I have that same authority with Jimmy. Jimmy and I work very closely together. He does not make decisions in a vacuum.”Kupchak then explained why he found the criticism unfair.“Any decision that has or has not happened in the last two or three years that people have a problem with, I was involved or leading the way,” Kupchak said. “If there’s criticism, then it should be directed at me as well.”The Lakers have taken plenty of criticism for various moves. Following Phil Jackson’s retirement in 2011, the Lakers hired Mike Brown to coach instead of keeping assistant Brian Shaw. After firing Brown five games into the 2012-13 season, the Lakers chose Mike D’Antoni despite having a sitdown interview with Jackson, who won five of his 11 NBA championships here. After LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Pau Gasol rejected the Lakers’ interest last summer, they settled on mostly role players on one-year deals to secure financial flexibility for future offseasons. Yet, Kupchak downplayed the need to talk with Johnson about his criticism.“We have a really good relationship,” Kupchak said of Johnson, who remains an unpaid vice president with the Lakers. “He wants nothing more than this franchise to be on top.”Yet, it remains up for debate how long that process will take. The Lakers want to win as many NBA championships as possible. So does Kobe Bryant.But Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak revealed on Friday he will place higher priority this offseason on protecting the team’s financial flexibility and youth than ensuring Bryant a roster equipped to win an NBA championship for the 2015-16 season. Then, Bryant will return following a season-ending right shoulder injury in what could conclude a storied 20-year NBA career.“We have to start a new run, and that’s definitely going to include Kobe next year,” Kupchak said. “But to jeopardize the next five or seven years and bring in old veterans that make a lot of money, just to win one more year, because that’s Kobe’s last year or could be his last year, I’m not sure that fits into doing it the right way.”Bryant recently described the Lakers’ front office to GQ Magazine as “hell-bent about having a championship-caliber team next season, as am I.” Yet, Lakers coach Byron Scott believes Bryant will understand the Lakers’ long-term needs even if it comes at the expense of his sixth NBA title. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img “He was so much more patient than what everybody was saying,” Scott said of coaching Bryant. “That says a lot about him and the respect for the organization and his willingness to get us back on the right track. He knows it’s going take a year or two.”Scott also repeated Bryant could play after his $25 million contract expires following next season, presuming he stays healthy and the Lakers upgrade their roster. “He has to get back where he feels he can perform at a high level,” Kupchak said of Bryant, whom the Lakers said will return in nine months. “To really look beyond that, from our point of view, is not realistic.”The Lakers have enough cap space this summer to sign one max-level free agent, but they could face challenges plucking Marc Gasol from Memphis, LaMarcus Aldridge from Portland, Kevin Love from Cleveland or Goran Dragic from Miami. Yet, the Lakers can avoid sending their first-round pick to Phoenix as part of the Steve Nash trade if it lands in the top five. The Lakers will have a mid first-round pick from Houston stemmed from the Jeremy Lin trade. The Lakers also have rookies Julius Randle and Jordan Clarkson to develop.Scott believed the Lakers could field a championship-caliber roster next season, conceding he hopes the rebuilding involves a “sprint.” But Scott then added he’s a “realist” and predicted “it will takes us a few years”last_img read more

MLB All-Star Game 2019: Actual baseball takes back seat in Cleveland’s celebration of the sport

first_imgCLEVELAND — If we’re being honest, the actual baseball played during the 2019 All-Star Game on Tuesday night wasn’t the most entertaining or exciting part of the multiple-day All-Star extravaganza near the shore of Lake Erie. And that’s OK.  MORE: Watch ‘ChangeUp,’ a new MLB live whiparound show on DAZNThe game itself was fine. The American League beat the National League 4-3. The NL’s eighth-inning rally — the Senior Circuit cut the deficit to just 4-3 on a two-run single by Mets rookie Pete Alonso — fell short with the tying run on third and the go-ahead run at second. The biggest theme of the game was AL pitchers striking out a bunch of NL hitters, 16 of them, including three each by game MVP Shane Bieber, Liam Hendricks and Aroldis Chapman.Shane Bieber.That’s it.That’s the tweet.#AllStarGame | #RallyTogether— Cleveland Indians (@Indians) July 10, 2019“We were nasty, man,” said Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman, who’s nursing a pectoral injury and didn’t pitch in the game. “It was a nice little win for the AL.”Turned out that Joey Gallo’s solo home run in the seventh inning, a line-drive that gave the AL a three-run cushion, was pretty darn important. In a season that’s been defined by incredible home run numbers, that was one of only two baseballs to sneak over the fence in the Midsummer Classic. Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon — who had been 0-for-8 in his first three All-Star Games — homered in the sixth and got the goose egg off the scoreboard for the NL, which he admitted was a nice feeling.  ‘Yeah! I mean, I felt like I contributed for the first time,” Blackmon told SN with a grin. “I wish I could have done something in that next at-bat, but it was still fun to be out there.”That “next at-bat” was in the seventh, when he struck out with the bases loaded, immediately before Alonso delivered his RBI base knock. He wasn’t the only NL hitter to flail helplessly against AL hurlers, of course. We already mentioned the 16 strikeouts.The contrast between Monday night’s frenetic Home Run Derby — Vlad Guerrero Jr. hit 91 homers himself, Alonso won the title and the eight guys combined to hit 312 homers — and Tuesday’s All-Star Game was hard to ignore. But, again, that’s OK. A record 91 bombs. 20 years old. 60 seconds 😳#PLAKATA 💥 | #LetsGoBlueJays— Toronto Blue Jays (@BlueJays) July 9, 2019The game’s an exhibition, a celebration of the sport. And to that extent, the week’s worth of events was mission accomplished in Cleveland. The excitement in the city, which did a fantastic job hosting, was hard to ignore, too. The Play Ball Park events were packed with families and kids — side note to MLB: Make this a traveling show that moves around the country and promotes the game, please —and the support inside the stadium was outstanding, too. Raucous cheers erupted anytime one of the hometown players did anything remotely good Tuesday night. Again, if we’re being honest, Bieber was probably given the MVP largely because the roars that increased with each of his three strikeouts in the fifth inning were, by far, the loudest of the game.  Together, we stand #CookieStrong. ❤️— Cleveland Indians (@Indians) July 10, 2019BENDER: Shane Bieber gave hometown fans a thrill on way to All-Star MVPThe Stand Up To Cancer moment, when Cleveland teammates Bieber, Francisco Lindor, Carlos Santana and manager Terry Francona joined Carlos Carrasco — who just announced that he has leukemia — was chill-inducing.“It was a message,” Lindor said. “It was a message to let him know, ‘We stand up for you. We will be next to you, as a team and as a family. We are next to you. We’re right there for you.’ And that’s all that matters. We all believe in him, we all believe that he’s gonna kick cancer’s butt, and he’ll be fine.”— Los Angeles Angels (@Angels) July 9, 2019And then there was Mike Trout running onto the field wearing uniform No. 45 in tribute to Tyler Skaggs, his Angels teammate who died suddenly and shockingly at 27 years old when the team was in Dallas to play the Rangers recently. Tommy La Stella, the other Angels All-Star, wore Skaggs’ No. 45, too. Another unforgettable moment that was more important than the actual baseball played in this exhibition — one no longer tied to home-field advantage in the World Series, thankfully — that was a celebration of the sport. And that’s exactly what happened this week, a worthy celebration.last_img read more
