In 2006, the AV Women’s Conference established a distinctive and distinguished honor to acknowledge recipients for extraordinary accomplishments, service or inspiration. The inaugural awards were presented to two women who found success in nontraditional female positions. The Antelope Valley Women’s Conference is pleased to present its 2007 “Looking Beyond the Ordinary” award to the remarkable Mary Clarke, mother of seven children, who “began to feel she should be contributing somehow to something larger.” Clarke is now known as Mother Antonia, the Prison Angel. Appropriately, President Ronald Reagan had written to the award recipient saying he was amazed at her “devotion to a calling beyond the ordinary.” Pulitzer Prize-winning authors Mary Jordan and Kevin Sullivan chronicled Clarke’s story in a book called “The Prison Angel: Mother Antonia’s Journey from Beverly Hills to a Life of Service in a Mexican Jail.” “In March 1978, Mother Antonia sold her home and moved into the prison permanently. She spent a few months in a bunk bed in the women’s cell-block, and then the warden furnished her with her own cell.” Mother Antonia has dedicated her life to serving the murderers, rapists, drug lords, thieves and other poor suffering inmates housed at La Mesa Penitentiary. She says she does it “for the love of God and for the love of you all!” With compassion, Mother Antonia ministers to the prisoners’ physical and spiritual needs – praying with them and defending them from the vicious guards. Among her accomplishments over the last 30 years are: Convincing Bishop Posada of Tijuana to receive her into his order of priests who made prisoners the recipients of their ministry. The ceremony took place on Sept. 24, 1978. Bishop Maher in San Diego made her auxiliary to the bishop, as Catholic orders in the diocese were. last_img read more

  • Jose Mourinho misses out on top LMA award to Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe

    first_img1 Eddie Howe has been named Manager of the Year by the League Managers’ Association after steering Bournemouth into the top-flight of English football for the first time in their history.The 37-year-old, who was also named Championship Manager of the Year after the Cherries’ title-winning season, landed the top honour ahead of Jose Mourinho.Howe is the first manager from outside the Premier League to take the overall award since Steve Coppell, then of Reading, won in 2006.In comments reported on Bournemouth’s website, Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers, who presented the award to Howe, said: “He’s done a fine job, a remarkable job, and done it with style and humility.”Mourinho wasn’t left empty-handed, as the Chelsea boss scooped the Premier League Manager of the Year prize.The Portuguese took the top-flight award after a league and Capital One Cup double but did not attend the ceremony in London to collect it as he was at Chelsea’s own club awards event.He had already been named Barclays Premier League Manager of the Season despite not once winning the monthly award throughout the season.Despite the accolades coming his way, Mourinho was still complaining about a perceived lack of recognition for his side in his speech at Chelsea’s event.Mourinho said: “I don’t think my players got the respect that they deserve after what they did from day one until the last day.“And these are words that I really feel, serious words.”The LMA League One award went to Steve Cotterill after Bristol City’s title-winning season.The only divisional award not to go to the boss of the title-winning side was the League Two gong, which went to Wycombe’s Gareth Ainsworth despite his side losing the play-off final to Southend on penalties.Bradford City’s Phil Parkinson was named FA Cup Manager of the Year after his side beat Chelsea and Sunderland en route to the quarter-finals of the competition.

  • MACLOCHLAINN: POLICE AUTHORITY BILL NEEDS TO BE AMENDED OVER FENNELLY ROW

    first_imgDeputy Padraig Mac LochlainnSINN Féin’S Justice Spokesperson Padraig MacLochlainn says the Policing Authority Bill must now be amended and brought before the Dáil as a matter of urgency.The Donegal Deputy said changes were needed to the Bill in the wake of the controversy over the Fennelly Report.Speaking today, Deputy MacLochlainn said: “The Policing Authority Bill in its current form is fatally flawed.“The analysis of the Fennelly controversy by experts such as Mark Kelly of the Irish Council of Civil Liberties and Vicky Conway of DCU, have reinforced Sinn Féin’s policy in relation to the Policing Authority. “Sinn Féin submitted detailed amendments to the Bill when it was being debated in the Seanad.“The Government at the time rejected these amendments off-hand. The publication of the Fennelly report reinforces the need for the Sinn Féin amendments to be included in the Bill.“The Bill must be amended so that the Garda Commissioner is accountable to an independent Policing Authority as opposed to the Minister for Justice.“The Fennelly report shows that there are serious defects in the accountability structure in the Department of Justice where, incredibly, there was not one meeting between the Garda Commissioner and the Minister for Justice during the most critical months to face the administration of the Gardaí since the foundation of the State. “Furthermore, the Policing Authority Bill in its current form gives the power to the Minister for Justice, as opposed to the Policing Authority, in determining and dealing with matters of ‘security’.“The problem here lies in the fact that it will be the Minister for Justice who will decide what constitutes a ‘security matter’.“It is giving the Minister a trump card to deem any matter a ‘security’ matter, thus, allowing the Minister to take personal responsibility for dealing with that matter.“Sinn Féin believes that the role of differentiating between a matter of ‘security’ and other policing matters should lie with an independent member of the judiciary as appointed by the Chief Justice.“The Policing Authority as it is currently proposed by the Government would have had no effect in preventing any of the serious failings identified in the Fennelly report,” added Deputy MacLochlainn.
