A watershed on weddings

March 1, 2021


Tagged: , , , , , , , , , , ,

first_imgHarvard Overseer and legal scholar Kenji Yoshino ’91, author of “Covering: The Hidden Assault on Our Civil Rights” (Random House, 2006), said he was surprised by the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision Monday to let stand appeals court rulings that in effect allow same-sex marriages to proceed in five states. But he has no doubt about where the issue is headed. He spoke about the case and the issue by phone on Monday afternoon. GAZETTE: How surprised were you by the court’s decision?YOSHINO: I was very surprised, because the Supreme Court usually grants review when a federal court of appeals strikes down a state constitutional amendment on the ground that it violates the federal Constitution. So I was actually expecting that the court would review this case. The consequence of them declining the review is, as you know, that five states flipped immediately to having same-sex marriage, and then there are six others that will also quickly flip because they are governed by the courts of appeal whose decisions were left intact … So it’s a big step forward. It takes us from 19 states to 30 states, plus the District of Columbia, with marriage equality.GAZETTE: For a lot of onlookers, the court appeared to decide by not deciding.YOSHINO: Yes, even though it didn’t decide, it actually decided a lot for the country. Because taking us from 19 to 30 states is getting across the halfway mark, and that’s one indication of when the Supreme Court is willing to step in and impose something as the law of the land. That is, if you have a supermajority of states, then the court is much more willing to step in and sweep away outliers.GAZETTE: Public opinion has shifted dramatically in favor of gay marriage in recent years. Does the court watch political trend lines in arriving at its decisions?YOSHINO: They absolutely do. When was the last time the Supreme Court flipped a supermajority of states on a major social issue?GAZETTE: Do you think Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s comments about Roe v. Wade — that the court moved too far too fast — have come into play here?YOSHINO: I do think that’s one of the reasons why they’re proceeding so cautiously and so incrementally. At least the liberals on the court are. I don’t think the supposition is that they’re not going to vote for same-sex marriage as a constitutional right or as being protected by the Constitution when it comes to them. I think what they’re saying is, “We want to do this in a way that makes it stick. So we’re not going to take this until the last possible moment that we can take it.”GAZETTE: So what happens next? Are we waiting for another court to rule in favor of a ban on same-sex marriage, forcing the Supreme Court’s hand?YOSHINO: Exactly. When a circuit court of appeals does that — upholds a ban on same-sex marriage as constitutional — then that will create what’s known as a circuit split. … The Supreme Court can do whatever it wants, but the court is almost 99 percent sure to take that case. Because the Constitution can’t differ according to where you live. … And if two courts of penultimate resort have gone in the opposite direction, then people are living under that uncertainty, with no recourse but the Supreme Court. … The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals is most likely, because they’ve already heard oral arguments in that case, and the judges seemed like they were sympathetic to upholding the ban on same-sex marriage.GAZETTE: And you’re confident of the eventual outcome?YOSHINO: I do think that it’s inevitable that this will reach the high court, and I also think that it’s inevitable that the court will rule for what everyone calls a “50-state solution,” where same-sex marriage becomes the law of the land.This interview was edited for clarity and length.last_img read more

first_img Tags: C-NSgirls tennisliverpool While it might not have proven the landmark upset that it wanted the most, the Liverpool girls tennis team could still feel quite proud of the efforts it put up in its two matches against Fayetteville-Manlius.Eight days after earning a pair of points against the Hornets on Sept. 9, the Warriors again got on the board in Tuesday’s rematch at F-M, though it still resulted in a 6-1 defeat.Dominating their doubles match, Liverpool’s duo of Julia Schewe and Angelica Underwood rolled past Angela Iskander and Emma Zogg 6-2, 6-1, and the Warriors nearly got another doubles point. Moving to doubles, Schewe and Angelica Underwood blanked Eve Campitello and Olivia Cerio 6-0, 6-0, with Magnarelli and Morgans nearly matching them, defeating Angel Languaphay and Lauren Misco 6-1, 6-0.It took a bit longer, but Megan Polhamus and Lea Prusinowski got past Sandy Lin and Emily Pilz 7-5, 6-3, while Sheridan Bryerton and Kaia Wallingford won 6-2, 6-4 over Autumn Brown and Elizabeth Chase.Back on Tuesday, C-NS had taken a 6-1 defeat to West Genesee, Cartier earning the lone point in singles when she beat the Wildcats’ Angelina Allen 6-3, 6-3. In doubles, Lin and Misco went to three sets, but lost a 6-0, 6-7, 10-7 battle to Olivia Grome and Isabelle Wells.But the Northstars rebounded a day later in a non-league match against Cazenovia, beating the Lakers 5-2 in large part due to a singles sweep.Cartier rolled past Julia Knutsen 6-1, 6-1, with Feeney beating Nova Berger 6-2, 6-1 and Hibbard getting a 6-2, 6-3 decision over Baylee Pierce.Though Cazenovia claimed two of the doubles matches, Pilz and Abigail Bustin paired up to beat Regan Dauenhauer and Mae Sayre 6-3, 6-1, while Misco and Brooke Ten Brink won, 6-4, 6-4, over Katie Pavelchak and Emma Thornton.C-NS is home for back-to-back matches against Baldwinsville and F-M next week as Liverpool has its own match with B’ville next Thursday after taking on Syracuse East.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story center_img Olivia Magnarelli and Crystal Morgans led early, yet could not hold on to it in a 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 defeat to Alexis Ahn and Lexi Kellish. F-M claimed the other points in straight sets, including all three in singles, where Gabby Underwood battled in a 6-4, 6-1 defeat to Phoebe Wang.Two days later, it was Liverpool against the same Cicero-North Syracuse side it swept earlier this month. And the result didn’t change in the rematch as, again, the Warriors prevailed 7-0.Diana Kozenyatko got it going with a 6-1, 6-1 win over Krista Feeney, with Gabby Underwood beating Cambrie Hibbard by those same scores as Geiwitz went to three sets before defeating Sara Cartier 6-1, 3-6, 6-0.last_img read more

Football: Ambitious Zanzibar eye Ugandan scalp in Cecafa semis

Front Row (L-R) – Muzamiru Mutyaba, Derrick Nsibambi, Benjamin Ochan, Milton Karisa, Isaac MulemeNairobi, Kenya | AFP |  Zanzibar are challenging for a first Cecafa Challenge Cup title in 22 years following their impressive run to the semi-finals of the nine-nation tournament.The competition’s surprise packages take on holders Uganda in the last four in Kisumu on Friday, knowing that victory would send them through to the final for just the second time.“From the onset nobody gave us any chances of progressing this far in the tournament,” Zanzibar coach Hemed Suleiman said on Thursday.“From the performance we have had in all four group matches, we have outdone our expectations.”Zanzibar were in the same group as Tanzania, but while the mainland team suffered an early elimination, the semi-autonomous island side, which competes as part of Tanzania in CAF competitions but plays independently in this regional tournament, progressed to the semi-finals.Star midfielder Mudathir Yahya said they were reaping the rewards of the decision to begin team preparations well ahead of time.“Unlike in the previous competitions, this time round our players started two weeks earlier,” said Yahya, who scored the opening goal in a 3-1 defeat of Rwanda. Suleiman could even afford to rest eight of his first-team players in their final group match — a 1-0 loss to Libya.Despite the defeat, Suleiman is confident in the depth of his squad and is hopeful of beating Uganda, the record 14-time champions.Uganda needed a late goal in a 1-1 draw against Ethiopia to qualify from the group stage, but interim coach Moses Basena believes his team will shake off their recent struggles.“We have to win the game, which is a must win for us,” said Basena, who took charge of the Cranes when Serbian Milutin Sredojevic resigned in August.“We just have to play as favourites, counter all the Zanzibari plans and win the game.” Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

New Sand Replenishment Project to Begin Mid-July

August 4, 2020


Tagged: , , , , , , , , , , ,

first_imgBy John BurtonMONMOUTH BEACH – The beaches along the Mon­mouth County coast are going to get a considerable amount of help with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ replenishment project, slated to begin this summer.U.S. Representative Frank Pallone Jr. (D-NJ) joined Mayor Susan Howard and Sea Bright Borough Councilman William J. Keeler during a brief news conference Friday, May 3, to offer details for the planned $102 million federal project.Super Storm Sandy flattened beaches along the shore by as much as 5 to 10 feet and caused some of those locations, which were in need of work, to even further deteriorate, Pallone said.The replenishment project will be done in four contracts; the first will cover the Mon­mouth Beach-Sea Bright portion, said Jennifer Thalhauser, project manager for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, in a telephone interview.That first contract will be awarded by mid-June with work beginning mid-July.The four contracts – three scheduled to be done concurrently – will cover 21 miles of beachfront from Manasquan to Sea Bright, excluding Deal. The project is estimated to take about 215 days and will be paid for entirely by federal money, Thalhauser said.The beaches will get an additional 5 million cubic yards or more of sand, according to Thalhauser.Monmouth Beach Mayor Susan Howard on theborough’s beachfront.The project will obviously coincide with the summer beach-going season, but Pallone and Thalhauser said it was important to move quickly to restore the beaches to protect them and the area’s infrastructure from future storms. Hurricane season begins June 1 and continues through November.“The sooner we get it done, the better,” Pallone said.To accommodate beachgoers, Pallone said work will be done on closed 1,000-foot stretches of beach at a time.The purpose of the replenishment project is not to make sure there are nice beaches for vacationers, the congressman stres­sed. “It’s really to protect the infrastructure” with extended beach areas serving as storm breaks.During the 1992 nor’easter that caused severe flooding and damage in the area, ocean water came over the seawall and compromised Ocean Avenue/High­way 36. Last October, even with the devastation of Sandy, that didn’t happen.“The beach saved our town,” Monmouth Beach mayor Susan Howard said, explaining the flooding the community experienced was from the Shrewsbury River side.“As bad as it was for Sea Bright,” Councilman Keeler said, “if we did not have that sand [from previous replenishment projects] much of Sea Bright would be gone.”The projects actually save money in the long run and are approved by a rather strict cost benefit analysis done by the Army Corps of Engineers, Pallone said.The corps had done a replenishment project for much of Monmouth Beach’s 1.5 miles of beach in 2011. In November 2012, the corps completed the length of borough beach and continued on through the en­tire­ty of Sea Bright in a project approved prior to Sandy.The new project is intended to repair the damage caused by Sandy and restore the oceanfront erosion control project to its original template, designed by the corps in the 1990s, Thalhauser said.The federal money has been allocated from the Sandy Aid package approved by Congress earlier this year, championed by Pallone and New Jersey and New York federal lawmakers and governors.last_img read more
