Governor Wolf Pays Tribute to Former Sen. Harris Wofford

first_img Press Release,  Statement Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf made the following remarks while paying tribute to former Sen. Harris Wofford today at his memorial service in Washington, D.C.:“Hello and thank you for being here today.“I’m here for two reasons: To pay tribute to a Pennsylvanian who honored the commonwealth by his service, and, second, to pay tribute to a human being who was an inspiration to me.“On both, I extend my deepest condolences to all who loved him, and I want to thank Harris’ family for sharing him with us.“His life story is a remarkable one. He seemed to always be where something important was happening – and as he lived his life – the important things that were happening had a lot to do with him.“Thus, he and Clair traveled to India soon after its independence, where they met most of the key leaders of that independence movement.“He was Father Hesburgh’s lieutenant on the Civil Rights Commission. He brought Gandhian non-violence to Martin Luther King Jr.’s attention. He convinced JFK of the need to take civil rights seriously, including his famous phone call to Coretta Scott King.“He helped Sargent Shriver found his Peace Corps. He was a college president – twice. He served in Gov. Robert Casey’s cabinet. He was a U.S. senator.“In all these things, he made our world a much better one, and it was truly a great thing that some of the chapters of his distinguished life had a connection to Pennsylvania.“All of us in Pennsylvania remember him with great appreciation, and we mourn his passing.“I got to know him through our shared commitment to the Peace Corps. He was one of its founders. I was a volunteer.“He was possessed by the idea – and the practice – of service.“From the Peace Corps to the Citizen Service Project to public service, he judged himself and the people he knew by their willingness to serve.“Like many others here today, I was privileged to know him. And, I was privileged to see firsthand how his passion for serving others made the lives of so many of us better.“As Harris said in his last words on the Senate floor, ‘My thoughts tonight are most of all on how lucky I have been; how very lucky.’“Actually, Harris, we who knew you were the lucky ones.” SHARE Email Facebook Twitter March 02, 2019center_img Governor Wolf Pays Tribute to Former Sen.

Lakers might need to delay Anthony Davis trade if Kawhi Leonard remains undecided

first_img Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs LAS VEGAS — In the closing minutes of the New Orleans-New York game on Friday night, the earth shook underneath Thomas and Mack Arena, making the scoreboard and speakers above the court gently sway.The NBA delayed the game for the 6.9-magnitude earthquake, which caused a temporary stir during the start of Las Vegas Summer League. But in the NBA’s larger picture, the day wasn’t about the landscape shifting, but about stagnancy.After the early flurry of commitments, the NBA had two near-silent days of free agency, as teams prepare to officially sign, trade and otherwise execute a host of moves on Saturday, when the moratorium ends.There’s only one problem: Kawhi Leonard. Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error The earliest the trade can be completed is Saturday at 9 a.m. PDT. Without Leonard’s commitment, the Lakers would likely delay the trade until he decides, according to an ESPN report. If he goes elsewhere, the Lakers would still be expected to spend their remaining cap space prior to the Davis trade, mining other parts of the market to fill out what is still a bare-bones roster.ESPN reported that the Pelicans, Hawks and Wizards are expected to cooperate with the Lakers if Leonard is still undecided Saturday morning. The trade date was agreed upon initially in the Lakers and Pelicans’ deal sending Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and three first-round picks for Davis. The deal was based on the Lakers using the $32 million in cap space created on a max free agent, such as Leonard or on other players available.Jared Dudley and Troy Daniels are the only committed minimum contract players so far. Others still uncommitted include Boston forward Marcus Morris, Toronto wing Danny Green, Golden State big man DeMarcus Cousins and several Lakers from last season, including Rajon Rondo and JaVale McGee. Notably, a reported Memphis trade with Washington is expected to add two more free agents to the market: guard Avery Bradley and center Dwight Howard.

The Lakers specifically are counting on signing Leonard into their $32 million max salary space, then executing their trade with New Orleans that will net them All-Star big man Anthony Davis. But until Leonard decides, the Lakers aren’t expected to complete the trade, meaning all the assets in the deal are left in limbo for the time being, affecting at least four teams. The Clippers and Raptors are also maintaining cap space for Leonard in hopes that he will sign.So far, that means a host of top draft picks haven’t been able to join their teams in Summer League: No. 4 overall pick De’Andre Hunter (going from the Lakers to the Atlanta Hawks), No. 10 Jaxson Hayes (Hawks to the Pelicans) and No. 17 Nickeil Alexander-Walker (Hawks to Pelicans) chief among them. The Lakers are also sending Moe Wagner, Isaac Bonga and Jemerrio Jones from last year’s class to the Washington Wizards, and once they’re on the Wizards’ roster, they might participate in Summer League.Related Articles Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions last_img read more
