Wilmington Little League Celebrates WHS Senior Riley Zaya


first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — This is the eleventh (and final) in a series of profiles celebrating the former Wilmington Little League’s seniors playing on the Wilmington High School baseball team. Little League’s motto is courage, character, and loyalty. Through playing with and against each other, these student athletes the embodiment of the motto.Riley ZayaThere is always that one kid who, when you watch them they look like they were born to be a ballplayer.  Riley Zaya is that type of kid.  He always seems to be in the right place, is fundamentally sound, and looks like he belongs on the baseball diamond.   He comes from a family of ballplayers and spent a lot of his formative years with his dad and brother at baseball camps, run by the coach of Reading High. He is also the kind of player who would run through a wall for you. He once gutted out an entire game with a sore arm, never letting the coach know so that he could help his team. Riley is a quick witted kid who knows how to keep everyone loose, but also knows when to buckle down and get serious.Riley began his WLL career in Rookie ball playing for the Yellow Jackets, coached by Fred Russell.  Once on the field, his skills and ability were evident to anyone who saw him play.  That first year on the small diamond was filled with many exciting memories.  He remembers getting his first hit, catching his first popup, turning his first double play, and turning a single into a double.   He remembers how much fun it was go to the field, get dirty and play baseball.Drafted by the Indians as a ten year old, he played his first season under Coach Jim Dee. His final two seasons he played for Coach Fred Russell.  The highlight of his Majors career was getting to play one season with his brother Connor.He was selected to play on the All Star tournament team each of his three seasons.  Other memorable moments included pitching a complete game, getting his first hit as a 10 year old,  and turning a game saving double play during a 11 year old All Star tournament game.  He really enjoyed playing for Coach Russell, and helping the Indians to the playoff semifinals during his final year in the Majors.  Riley played on the Indians with future Wildcats Jack Boyle and Jarred Aucoin.  He also always enjoyed marching in the Opening Day parade and hanging with his friends on the outfield fence watching the other teams play their games.Riley finished his WLL career playing two years in Juniors.  Along with the spring teams, he also played for the Jimmy Fund, Pony, and Northeast teams in the summer. He was a valuable contributor to the first Wilmington Middle School team. He helped lead the Wildcats to a 16-5 record and a trip to the semifinals of the playoffs. He also played on the 2016 Northeast team, which was the first Wilmington team to win a Northeast League Division championship.This will be Riley’s second year playing Varsity Baseball for the Wildcats, having competed at the Freshman and JV level for the his first two years. He was a member of the 2017 Middlesex Freedom division championship team last year.  He also played four years on the WHS Soccer team.Riley is thankful for all the years his mother Claire, Father Tom, brother Connor, and sister Mackenzie made the time to see him play. He is grateful to have gotten the opportunity to play that one year in the Majors with his brother.  He is planning on attending the University of New Hampshire in the fall to study business.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Buckey Does An Amazing Job Wherever She Dedicates


first_imgDear Editor,This letter is in strong support of Erin Buckley for State Representative in the 19th Middlesex!I’ve known Erin for nearly a decade. Together with her husband, we were some of the very first people to both maintain and grow the Tewksbury Hospital Trail System as a destination for dog walkers, mountain bikers, and hikers. She has always been a passionate woman when it comes to being involved in her community. I am never surprised by the amazing job she does wherever she dedicates her time, be it in the State House as a Legislative Aide or her work for the Republican party in the 2016 election cycle. I can recall seeing her holding signs in Tewksbury, as well as surrounding towns, somehow finding time to go above and beyond in her job with the MassGOP and still volunteer in numerous positions and for numerous causes.Erin finds the time. But not everyone does. We have an opposing candidate in the Republican primary whose empty excuse for only having voted once in her life was that she was too busy building her career. Well, Erin was busy building her community at that same time! During that candidate’s massive voting gap, Erin found the time to work, graduate from university with the highest honors, be accepted to the most sought-after internship in Governor Baker’s Office, and then dedicate herself, full-time, to her community and the political causes she values so highly.There is no excuse for a lack of participation, especially from someone pretending to an elected seat. Erin Buckley will continue to dedicate herself to both Tewksbury and Wilmington — and we will better better off for it! Come September 4th, vote Erin Buckley for State Representative!Steve BagleyTewksbury, MA(Correction: Wilmington Apple accidentally excluded the the writer’s name, which has been updated.)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

Libertarians Independents And WriteIns Here Are Texas NonMajor Party Options in 2018


first_imgBob Daemmrich for The Texas TribuneA “vote” sign in a yard in west Austin on March 6, 2018.Today’s Texplainer question was inspired by reader Karen.Hey, Texplainer: I don’t like the Republicans or Democrats running in 2018. What are my other choices?For Texans who aren’t fans of either of the nation’s two major parties, writing in a random person — or meteor — may sound appealing. (Yes, voters in 2016 cast ballots for Giant Meteor, Deez Nutz, Oprah Winfrey, Harambe or just left a somber message like “America U R Broken.”)No, those votes don’t count. But you still do have some real options besides the chosen Democrats and Republicans.Third party candidatesTexas Libertarians have fielded a candidate in nearly every statewide race this election season, according to Mark Tippetts, the party’s nominee for governor. A full list of the Libertarians that will be on the ballot this fall can be found on the party’s website.In order to get their candidates on the general election ballot without a petition, third parties must have at least one candidate win more than 5 percent of the vote in a statewide race during the previous election cycle. Libertarian petroleum engineer Mark Miller barely cleared that hurdle for his party in 2016, winning 5.3 percent of the vote in the race against Railroad Commissioner Wayne Christian.“We’ve maintained ballot access throughout the state by running candidates and getting the percentages needed,” Tippetts said. “It is a really good feeling to have ballot access and it really takes away the argument of the Democrats and Republicans that they are the only ones you can vote for.”Despite enthusiasm from the state’s only third party to clinch ballot access this year, a Libertarian has never won a statewide race in Texas. According to Tippetts, however, winning an election this fall isn’t the only goal. Rather, he hopes to prove that third parties can compete against the nation’s two major parties and have at least one Libertarian statewide candidate earn enough votes to ensure they’ll be on the ballot again in 2020.“We must maintain ballot access and we have enough statewide candidates running that I think we should be able to do that,” Tippett said. “We believe we have the best platform and the best principles, but we also realize a party grows little by little and our intent is to keep the party going and maintain ballot access.”Independent candidatesCandidates unaffiliated with a political party are allowed access to the general election ballot as long as they file the necessary paperwork and gather a certain number of signatures — depending on the office sought — from people who didn’t attend either the Republican or Democratic party conventions this year or vote in either party’s primary.“It’s up to their personal campaign on how they want to portray themselves [but] when you’re an independent, you haven’t attended the convention of another party,” said Sam Taylor, a spokesman for the secretary of state’s office.Independent candidates were required to register with the appropriate office by June 21. This year, eight candidates are registered as independents — seven in congressional races and another vying for a state House seat. None are running for statewide office. Independent U.S. Senate candidate Jonathan Jenkins missed the filing deadline for the November ballot.Here’s the full list of independent candidates: Ben Mendoza in El Paso’s 16th Congressional District. Benjamin Hernandez and Kesha Rogers in Houston’s 9th Congressional District. Scott Cubbler in the 2nd Congressional District in the Houston area. James Duerr in Texas’ 27th Congressional District along Texas’ Gulf Coast. Kellen Sweny in the Houston area’s 22nd Congressional District.center_img Write-in candidatesFive parties in Texas made an effort this year to get November ballot access — America’s Party of Texas, the Christian Party of Texas, the Green Party of Texas, None of the Above and the Texas Independent Party. However, none of the parties secured the nearly 50,000 valid signatures needed for ballot access this fall.There’s a last-ditch effort these parties can utilize, however: filing a declaration of write-in candidacy. The window to file declarations opened on July 21 and will close Aug. 20, Taylor said.As of Friday, Taylor said, only one candidate had filed a nominating petition: Samuel Lee Williams Jr. (who will appear on the ballot as Sam Williams). According to his campaign filing, Williams is running as a candidate for the Independent Party against Democrat Veronica Escobar and Republican Rick Seeberger in the race fill the U.S. House seat that’s being vacated by Beto O’Rourke, D-El Paso.But don’t be surprised if more write-ins file to get on the ballot over the next several weeks. Jan Richards, a Green Party of Texas candidate for governor, told The Texas Tribune she plans to send her paperwork to the secretary of state’s office in the final days leading up to the declaration deadline — but first she said she needs to collect the $3,750 needed to be eligible as a write-in. She said she wasn’t aware of other candidates in her party that planned on doing the same.“My own platform represents the needs of a large number of Texans,” Richards said. “There’s a huge number of people who could be served by a candidate like me. What I’m trying to accomplish is talking about issues relevant to people — like education, universal healthcare and workplace improvement.”Andy Prior, the former state chairman for America’s Party of Texas who’s the party’s nominee for land commissioner, also said he’s considering filing paperwork to be an eligible write-in. According to its website, America’s Party supports a pro-life and pro-liberty platform.“I plan on making a final decision probably this week, which would give me two weeks to get everything done that would be necessary,” Prior said.Spokespeople for the Christian Party of Texas, None of the Above and Texas Independent Party did not immediately respond to requests for comment regarding their plans for the November election.The bottom line: For Texans who don’t want to vote for either the Democrat or Republican on the ballot, there are other options available. Libertarians fielded a candidate in nearly every statewide race this year, and there are eight eligible independent candidates running. Neal Katz, in Texas House District 6 in Tyler. Martin Luecke in Texas’ 25th Congressional District, which spans from Fort Worth to Austin. Sharelast_img read more
