She loved the written word and she shared her spirit through her words and her actions. All of us who knew Jean will miss her spirit.”Winnie Merle Helton holds a special place for Boutwell in her memory.“When I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1999, Jean and I were featured in an article in The Messenger,” Helton said. “Jean had breast cancer many years before and we talked about the difference in treatments. I got to know her through that experience.” By Jaine Treadwell When one person is missing the whole world seems empty. That’s the way “Tear Soup” author Pat Schweibert described the feeling of the loss of a loved one. And, that’s the way the family and friends of Jean Boutwell are feeling now.“Jean was the kind of person who sees the good in all people and in all situations,” said Mary Ann Casey, former director of the Colley Senior Complex. “Jean was such a vital part of our senior group. She had an incredible spirit and she took us all to a higher level.”Boutwell, a former columnist for The Messenger and active member of the community, passed away Thursday. Sponsored Content The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… The Saturday Night Dance group paid tribute to Boutwell this weekend.“We had a special moment for Ms. Jean and then the band played her favorite song, ‘Kansas City, Here I Come;’” Glenda Fayson said and added laughing, “I danced so hard for Ms. Jean that I couldn’t go to church on Sunday. She was one special lady.” Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Print Article Helton said Boutwell was an encourager who helped her through her battle with cancer. “Jean was a very giving person,” she said. “She gave to a lot of causes, not especially monetarily, but with her support. That is evident by her election to the Alabama Senior Citizens Hall of Fame.”For several years, Boutwell wrote a column for The Messenger and she often used her space to highlight the accomplishments of community members and to recognize the efforts of clubs and organizations to make Troy and Pike County a better place to live and work. She carried that same spirit to her close friends in a “birthday group.” “If she found out something that you had done or some recognition that you had gotten, she would send a card or call. She was a very giving person,” Helton said.Boutwell also loved to travel and she loved to dance. If the bus was loading, she was in line and, if the music was playing, she was on the dance floor. Beverly Casey, Colley Senior Complex activities coordinator, said what she enjoyed most were the Saturday night dances.“When the music started, she was on the dance floor and she was not shy about dancing. She would tap a man on the shoulder and say, “I’d like to dance with you.’ Everybody loved Ms. Jean,” Casey said. Published 10:50 pm Monday, May 13, 2013last_img read more

Syracuse prepares to welcome 5 top 150 recruits in Class of 2015

first_img Published on February 4, 2015 at 12:19 am Contact Matt: [email protected] | @matt_schneidman Coming off a program-record 16-4-1 season, Syracuse is getting set to haul in a recruiting class that has five prospects ranked in the College Soccer News top 150. Here’s a brief look at all five players ahead of Wednesday’s National Signing Day.Chris Gomez — Defender — Jamison, PennsylvaniaGomez, the 18th-ranked prospect by CSN, is the likely replacement for Jordan Murrell at left back. He plays similar to the former SU defender, noting his own knack to advance into the attacking third.“My defending has improved a lot, but my attacking has always been my main attribute, going up and down the left side,” Gomez said.SU’s top prospect has put on 14 pounds since Thanksgiving and has been working strictly on his leg strength with his trainer. On his own, he emphasizes everything else, including vertical jumping to improve his heading ability.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSaid Gomez: “I feel really, really, really good about next year and being prepared.”Miles Robinson — Defender — Boston, MassachusettsThe No. 40 prospect in this year’s class, Robinson is a right center back who could start if head coach Ian McIntyre chooses to go with a four-man defense instead of a three-back, as he did this year.Similar to former SU defender Skylar Thomas, Robinson doesn’t tend to advance into the attacking third much, but said his aerial prowess is what defines his game.“I’m definitely a player who likes the ball in the air,” Robinson said. “Maybe on corners (I’ll move forward), but I probably stay more in the center position like Skylar Thomas.”Robinson noted that McIntyre was looking for him to possibly take the spot of senior Tyler Hilliard on the back line. But now that Hilliard is returning for a fifth year, Robinson said it’ll be fun looking up to a veteran defender if he comes off the bench.Austin Aviza — Goalkeeper — Medway, MassachusettsWith Matt Stith graduating and Alex Bono now playing professionally, Aviza will be one of two goalkeepers on the roster along with rising sophomore Pat Castle.Aviza is the 106th-ranked prospect in the class and said the biggest thing he took from watching Bono was how much of a leader he was on and off the field.He stands 6 feet 3 inches, he said, and added that his height makes everything “10 times easier.” His ability in the air is what he called the strongest part of his game, and it’ll be something he relies on to try and be the starter in net for SU.“Obviously I have to fight for it and earn it, but I expect to do so,” Aviza said. “But it’ll be a battle and it’ll be well-fought.”Adnan Bakalovic — Forward — Syracuse, New YorkA local product, Bakalovic said that former Orange locals Bono and Stefanos Stamoulacatos inspired him to stay close to home.Bakalovic comes in as the 137th-ranked prospect in the class and enters a group of forwards that just lost Emil Ekblom. He said it’d be tough to crack the starting lineup but thinks he can get time behind Chris Nanco and Alex Halis.Ekblom preferred receiving the ball with his back to goal, but the style that Bakalovic likes is a closer resemblance to the returning starters.“I think the best part of my game is going at defenders on the dribble,” Bakalovic said in a text. “I can either go through the middle or go through the sides to take on defenders one-on-one.”Morgan Hackworth — Midfielder — Wallingford, PennsylvaniaWhat Syracuse loses in midfielder Nick Perea and Stamoulacatos, it seems to be gaining in Hackworth.The No. 140 prospect is a center midfielder who can play either defensive or attacking roles, though he hasn’t had much experience playing with five in the midfield as SU did last year.Still, he said the reason he drew McIntyre’s attention is the same reason that he can be effective right off the bat.“I really like to get on the ball,” Hackworth said. “I’m usually that guy that’ll get it and play it off really quickly. When Ian watched me play, he really liked that about me. I also have a pretty strong voice.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
