Childhood friends take medals at Golden Age Games

first_img“We’ve all been friends forever,” Saldivar said. The three veterans also play in the Senior Softball League representing Pico Rivera. The team won a bronze medal in June in the Senior Olympics in Pasadena. “It was the first time the team placed in nearly 20 years of participation in the Senior Olympics,” said Saldivar, the more outspoken of the two. He encouraged Gallegos to “get off the couch,” and do something with his free time. Gallegos, who lettered in football, basketball and baseball at Bell Gardens High School, joined the softball team and used the pool as a way to rehab his legs. “I wasn’t moving too well,” he said, describing the use of his legs, which deteriorated due to severe varicose veins, a result of more than three decades delivering for UPS. Now he is moving much better. Gallegos was surprised by the caliber of athletes, especially the veterans who had lost limbs while serving their country. “There were some excellent athletes,” he said, citing a 97-year-old veteran who was a gold medalist in shuffleboard. Saldivar, who attended Montebello High School, was urged to be more active by De La Cruz after the death of his wife. “I needed to get out,” he said. He has medals from both games to show for his efforts. “Training is difficult, you have to give up that extra tamale at Christmas,” Saldivar said. He is already training for next year’s competition to be staged in Indianapolis. “Men train, women diet,” he said of his food and exercise regimen. Saldivar’s goal is to medal in four events, the maximum allowed. “I hope to be doing this for 30 more years,” he said. www.va.gov sandra.molina@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3028 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

They joined more than 600 men and women who served in World War II, Korea and Vietnam and participated in events ranging from swimming to shuffleboard. Gallegos said the games, dubbed “Heroes in Houston,” is to honor those who did not come home. “They are the real heroes,” he said. “They were so young and didn’t get a chance to live their lives.” In his second year competing, Saldivar won two silvers in swimming and a bronze in biking. Gallegos won a bronze in swimming. The two men, who met while attending Eastmont Junior High School in East Los Angeles and served in the Marine Corps, were coached by fellow veteran Dave De La Cruz, 61, of Alhambra. WHITTIER – Childhood friends George Gallegos and Manny Saldivar, both of Whittier, have shared times good and bad in the four decades they’ve known each other. They include weddings, the births of their children, working for United Parcel Service for more than three decades and the death of Saldivar’s wife, Christine, in January 2005. This summer the duo added medal-winners to the list. Gallegos and Saldivar, both 58, competed in the 21st annual National Veterans Golden Age Games in Houston Aug. 27-31. last_img read more

Hillary Clinton scares up some votes as ’08 costume of choice

first_img160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Once again, Hillary Rodham Clinton leads in a poll. This time, she’s the top choice when people are asked which major 2008 presidential candidate would make the scariest Halloween costume. Thirty-seven percent in an Associated Press-Ipsos survey this month chose the New York senator, the front-runner among Democratic presidential contenders. Fourteen percent selected former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who leads Republicans in national polls. No other candidate exceeded 6 percent. Clinton was the choice of four in 10 men and one-third of women. While a predictable two-thirds of Republicans picked her, she also was the choice of 18 percent of Democrats. Among members of her own party, that made her second only to Giuliani as the scariest costume. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.About one-third of independents, nearly half of whites and just over half of conservatives and white evangelicals selected her. Giuliani was the choice of 17 percent of men and 12 percent of women. About one-fifth of minorities and city residents and one-quarter of Democrats also picked him. While many conservatives have doubts about Giuliani’s candidacy because of his moderate views on abortion and other social issues, only 6percent of that group said they thought he would make the scariest costume. That is about the same number who chose Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill. Giuliani was also picked by 10 percent of white evangelicals, another largely conservative group that has had doubts about his candidacy. The poll involved telephone interviews with 1,013 adults conducted from Oct. 16-18. It has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.last_img read more

‘IT WAS A DREAM COME TRUE TO MEET MUHAMMAD ALI’ – SAYS DONEGAL MAN

first_imgTony Kelly from Greencastle with Muhammad Ali donegaldaily.comA CO Donegal man has described his meeting with Muhammad Ali as “a dream come true.”Tony Kelly, from Greencastle, now lives in Louisville, Kentucky, where his wife is Megan is from. The couple met when Megan was working at an organic farm in Inishowen during a trip to Ireland.Twenty-four-year-old Tony knew Muhammad Ali lived in the city; but never dreamed he would meet him. Until last Friday that was, when Tony knocked on his hero’s door – and got to meet sporting and boxing legend.“I have always been a massive Muhammad Ali and never thought that I would ever get the chance to meet the legend,” plumber Tony told Donegal Daily.“But if the opportunity ever arose that I would take it. It was just my lucky day on Friday that I was across the road from his house.“When my work mates told me it was Ali’s house I was a bit suspicious but then I started to believe them. I said ‘feck it’ it, i’m gonna call down. “So at lunch time I walked to his door and knocked,Yolanda, his wife, answered the door and I explained to her that I was a huge fan of Ali’s and it would be a great honuor to be able to meet him.“She told me that Muhammad was unavailable at the moment and to call back in an hour’s time, and that he would be delighted to meet one of his Irish fans as he is proud of his Irish heritage.“An hour later I called back and was welcomed in to their home and Muhammad was sitting on his chair I introduced myself and said hello, he said hello back, and we posed for a few pictures.“They all said how lucky I was as they spend very little time in that house and it was just a case of right place right time.“Muhammad Ali has fans all over the world and he is such a people person that they didn’t mind me calling by, but it was just a ballsy move that paid off for me and I got to meet a true living legend.” Legend!‘IT WAS A DREAM COME TRUE TO MEET MUHAMMAD ALI’ – SAYS DONEGAL MAN was last modified: January 20th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:GreencastleMuhammad AliTONY KELLYlast_img read more

At sea: Family, friends learn about Navy life

first_imgSAUGUS – There once was a time when Jeanne Garcia brought her young daughter to work. Now it’s mom who’s tagging along with her grown child to see firsthand what she does for a living. And in this case, it’s aboard the Navy’s aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan, where Shannan Wilson works as a master at arms in security. Although it’s a first for mother and daughter, the pair are participating in an annual Navy outreach program known as Operation Tiger, a cruise that connects thousands of family members and friends with loved ones at sea to see for a few days how they sleep, eat and live while on duty for months at a time. The Saugus woman boarded the ship on Thursday with about 1,300 other moms, dads and friends. Leaving from Honolulu, the boat is scheduled to dock on July 6 in San Diego. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2“My daughter told me not to bring anything nice or white,” Garcia said as she carefully considered what to pack, as it all must fit in a small locker on board. “I’m just so excited.” Garcia and Wilson haven’t seen one another since October. In Santa Clarita, Garcia is among 800 to 900 mothers of military personnel, according to the local chapter of Blue Star Mothers. The club serves as a support network, promotes patriotism and assists veterans in town. Debi Duke, Blue Star chapter president, said one of the most difficult issues military parents face is not regularly seeing or even talking with their children. “You can’t just call them, and they call you. You can’t just pop in and visit for a birthday or anniversary,” Duke said. “It depends if they can get a weekend pass or leave.” At sea since January, the 21-year-old Wilson writes e-mails home daily and calls every few months with stories of her travels to the Middle East, Hong Kong, Australia and Guam. But staying in touch wasn’t always that flexible, especially during Wilson’s basic training three years ago in the Midwest when she, like other recruits, couldn’t regularly phone home. Garcia hopes that on this trip – where they’ll sleep in the same room on bunk beds – they can make up for some lost time. She’s eager to see all of the things she has visualized through the e-mails and phone calls: her daughter’s room, her friends and the life that she has created for herself in the Navy. “However it goes, it’ll be something I can share with the grandkids,” she said. “And I intend to take lots of pictures.” sue.doyle@dailynews.com (661) 257-5254160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
