The proposed ban would threaten press freedom, RSF says. FranceEurope – Central Asia Protecting journalists Judicial harassment Receive email alerts to go further The bill’s controversial article 24 would ban journalists, media and anyone else from publishing or broadcasting photos or videos of police officers “with the aim of harming their physical or mental integrity”.The way Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin is interpreting the article clearly violates the principles of press freedom and the public’s right to be informed, RSF says. Speaking on BFMTV on 2 November, he said his promise that it would no longer be possible to disseminate the images of police officers and gendarmes on social media “will be kept because the law will prohibit the dissemination of such images.”Speaking on France Info on 13 November, he maintained the same ambiguity and referred to his intention to toughen the law, saying inter alia: “If you want to broadcast in an unrestrained manner on the Internet, you will have to pixelate the faces.”“Deputies are examining a bill that could considerably obstruct journalists’ work and undermine their ability to inform our fellow citizens about the behaviour of the police,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “We urge the parliamentary majority, especially the deputies of En Marche, to reject this provision in its current form and to make it clear that France must have no ban on filming and disseminating images of police in action except in extremely limited cases.”In its analysis of the bill, RSF had said that, while the risk of journalists being convicted on the basis of its provisions might be limited, the police could easily use it to arrest journalists who were filming them in the field and that this would restrict the right to inform.RSF had also pointed out that, in the event of a complaint about a photo or video that had been published or broadcast, prosecutors could potentially use the resources at their disposal – including searching the journalist’s home or office and examining their emails and social media accounts – to find comments critical of the police or police violence that could be used to claim an intent to harm and thereby obtain a conviction.France is ranked 34th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.

Source: GMP. (Marketwire – August 11, 2009) – Sherry Olson of Plainfield, Vermont, is the winner of the 2009 Ralph Nading Hill, Jr. literary prize awarded annually by Green Mountain Power and Vermont Life magazine. Olson’s winning poem, entitled “The Paper Cutter,” describes finding a skilled tradesman who takes pride in his work and always wants to do the right thing. While looking for someone to sharpen her paper cutter, she finds more: “I imagine his heart, not the bodily pumping one, but the one folks like to say, of gold, burnished and soft, something, almost, I might carry in my pocket, reach in and touch.”Mary Hegarty Nowlan, one of the judges and editor of Vermont Life commented, “Ms. Olson’s poem was selected as the winner because of the simplicity of the language, which was clear and not overwritten. Her description of Ben Corliss, who lives in East Calais, draws you in and rings true as you learn about someone who may do something simple, but whose graciousness and kindness make you think about how you approach the world.”Olson grew up in North Carolina and Kentucky and received a BA from Earlham College. She worked as a teacher and volunteer coordinator at Central Vermont Adult Basic Education for more than 15 years and now leads poetry workshops and reading discussion groups for people of all ages, some under the auspices of the Vermont Humanities Council. Her favorite assignment has been leading a weekly poetry workshop at the Dale Correctional facility, which she did for many years. She believes everyone can write poetry, and helping people discover the thrill of writing poems is very exciting to her.Olson’s first book of poetry, “Breakfast At The Wayside,” came out in 2000. She is currently putting together a second manuscript of poetry.”The Paper Cutter” will be published in the fall issue of Vermont Life, which will be available in bookstores and on newsstands in late August.Olson will receive a $1,500 prize for the poem. The literary prize is named for the late Ralph Nading Hill, Jr., a Vermont historian and writer and long-time member of Green Mountain Power’s Board of Directors.This is the 20th year that the Ralph Nading Hill Literary Prize has encouraged writers in Vermont and it is now considered by Vermont writers to be one of the state’s premier literary prizes. Entries may include essays, short stories and poetry.The selection was made by an independent panel of judges: Mary Hegarty Nowlan, editor of Vermont Life; Tom Slayton, past editor of Vermont Life; Tony Marro, retired executive editor of Newsday; Alison Freeland, a 1994 winner of the Ralph Nading Hill, Jr., award for her story, “Shadbush”; Brian Vachon, retired vice president of communications at National Life of Vermont and a former Vermont Life editor; and Steve Terry, retired Green Mountain Power senior executive.The deadline for entries for this year’s contest is November 15, 2009. The contest is open to all Vermont residents, including seasonal residents and college students enrolled in Vermont colleges. Entrants may be amateur or professional writers. The focus of the work must be “Vermont — Its People, the Place, Its History or Its Values.” Entries must be unpublished and less than 3,000 words long. Staff of Vermont Life or Green Mountain Power and previous winners are ineligible. Send entries to the Corporate Relations Department of Green Mountain Power, 163 Acorn Lane, Colchester, VT 05446.
After taking an early 5-2 lead, the Lakers saw the margin cut to one, 7-6, by halftime, but for the rest of the game Tully found it difficult to get past an airtight Lakers back line as Nate Squires, returning in goal, stopped 14 of 22 shots he faced.Before going quiet late, Skaneateles had Hackler score twice and get three assists, with Wamp earning three goals. Grayson Brunelle also had two goals, with Powers adding a goal and two assists. Danforth and Evan Brunelle had the other goals.Marcellus was no. 5 in those same state Class D rankings, and proceeded to score 10 goals in the first quarter of last Tuesday’s game against Chittenango on the way to defeating the Bears 21-7.Even with all this production, it got spread around quite well, no one netting more than the four goals from Emmett Barry and three goals from Liam Tierney. Luke Ingianni and Zac Vanorder each had four assists, adding single goals.Mike Quick and Matt Connell both scored twice, with Mason Barney and Ryan Moses each netting one goal and one assist. A.J. Belvito had two assists as Dylan Lanning and Tighe Powell also had goals.On Friday, Marcellus visited Homer, and just like in the Skaneateles game at Tully, it proved close and tense before the road team pulled it out, the Mustangs edging the Trojans 7-6 in overtime.Down 3-2 at the half, Marcellus blanked Homer in the third quarter and built a 5-3 lead, only to have the Trojans make its own late comeback to push it beyond regulation, goalie Colin Perks making 11 saves.But the Mustangs got the OT game-winner past Perks as Tierney, with three goals and one assist, led the way. Barry got two goals and one assist, with Ingianni and Powell adding goals and Quick getting an assist.In a possible Class C playoff preview, state no. 8-ranked Westhill visited Alibrandi Stadium last Tuesday, where state no. 3-ranked Christian Brothers Academy jumped out in front and never got caught, beating the Warriors 12-7.Right from the start, Westhill attempted to play at a slower tempo, but that backfired when CBA struck three different times with two goals less than 30 seconds apart, building a 7-1 advantage by the third quarter.The Warriors did cut the margin to 7-4 late in that period, but after an exchange of goals the Brothers pulled away for good in the final minutes, led by Wyatt Auyer (three goals) and Preston Taylor (one goal, four assists).Only Will Delano and Charlie Bolesh scored twice for Westhill, with single goals going to Reilly Sizing, Jack Grooms and Mack Etoll. Aiden Felter finished with seven saves.Against J-E on Friday, Westhill won big, 15-3, gaining a 10-1 advantage by halftime as Delano had five assists to go with his lone goal and Sizing got three goals and two assists.Bolesh, Grooms, Ryan Gilmartin and Charlie McNitt each scored twice, with Ryan Durand and Liam Robb adding single goals. Wade Brunelle netted all three of J-E’s goals as Luke Pinckney got two assists.J-E played a day earlier and beat Watertown IHC 14-5, overcoming an early 2-0 deficit as it outscored the Cavaliers 11-2 over the course of the next two quarters.Brunelle led that charge, earning three goals and four assists. Griffin LaFleur scored four times, with Riordan Parker and Jeremiah Sparks getting two goals apiece. Deacon Hill, Cole Mullen and Joel Blasko had single goals.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story Overcoming 18 saves by Steve Tripp, Skaneateles had Evan Brunelle net six goals, with Grayson Brunelle, John Danforth and Nick Wamp each scoring three times.Brendan Powers netted two goals and two assists, while Colin Weeks, Massimo Capozza and Ryan Willard had single goals. Pat Hackler got three assists and Ben Spinelli had two assists.A Friday-night visit to Tully had the Lakers nervous for quite a while, the game close all the way to the end and Skaneateles needing some defense to hold off the Black Knights 10-8. With its recent strong play, the Skaneateles boys lacrosse team inched up to no. 2 in last week’s state Class D rankings, passing General Brown at no. 3 and only trailing Bronxville.Little that took place in the last full week of the regular season changed that trajectory, with the Lakers roaring through last Tuesday’s game with Jordan-Elbridge, putting together a 20-4 win over the Eagles.Already up 4-1, Skaneateles put J-E away with a 7-1 push through the second quarter, the Lakers shutting everyone out except Wade Brunelle, who had all four of the Eagles’ goals, Luke Pinckney adding two assists.
