SMC magazine contributors share work at reading

first_img“Chimes,” the biannual art and literary magazine of Saint Mary’s College, will be released next week.  The magazine features various creative works from Saint Mary’s faculty and students ranging from first years to seniors.  Senior and co-editor Laura Corrigan said many students have two pieces in the magazine, which is the maximum accepted per student. Corrigan said she hopes the Saint Mary’s community will appreciate the pieces in this year’s edition. “We hope people will read and enjoy all of the pieces accepted this year and will be encouraged to submit next year,” Corrigan said.  “We also hope the writers’ hard work and creativity is accessible for others to enjoy.” Haemmerle said “Chimes” has had a long history – the first issue of the magazine was published in September of 1892. “The magazine has developed from being primarily a literary magazine to include art work as well,” Haemmerle said. “It also is published digitally on the ‘Chimes’ website.”  Haemmerle said that there were 36 poetry submissions this year, 19 of which were chosen for publication.  A chapbook was chosen as well, she said. The magazine received 22 fiction submissions, 10 of these were chosen, she said. Junior Landess Kearns said she is very excited about her poem, which will be published in this year’s edition. “I was thrilled when they chose my poem,” Kearns said. “It always it such an accomplishment to have work recognized by others, and I think that “Chimes” does a great job at selecting a wide variety of student pieces.” Corrigan said students and professors read both fiction and non-fiction pieces during the first official “Chimes” reading Thursday night in Spes Unica Hall at Saint Mary’s. Corrigan said attendance at the reading by both students and professors was better than expected. Sophomore Maria Monreal, senior Elizabeth Elsbach and sophomore Anna Fanelli read their pieces at Thursday’s gathering, where other writers shared their work as well. Elsbach said she has enjoyed being published in the “Chimes” multiple times through her years at Saint Mary’s, and likes seeing the literary talent in the community. She shared one of her poems at Thurday’s event, Elsbach said. “I read one of my poems called ‘Grinding the dregs’ at the ‘Chimes’ event,” Elsbach said. “It’s about sexuality and how people exploit it.  It’s always a pleasure to be chosen.” Senior Rose Franzen said she read one of her fictional short stories, entitled “My Brother’s Keeper,” about her brother coming back from active duty. She said she enjoyed sharing the story with others interested in art and creative writing. “I loved the reading last night because it is fun to share a creative piece with other people who love literature and art like I do,” Franzen said. Fanelli, a Humanistic Studies and German major, said that she enjoyed hearing the work of students from various majors. “I was shocked when one of the girls was a Biology major,” Fanelli said.  “It’s cool that not only English majors take part in this publication.”last_img read more

Chase Young explains why he’s exactly right not to work out at NFL Combine

first_imgChase Young isn’t looking for a gold medal in the Underwear Olympics, also known as the NFL Combine.Young, the best overall prospect in the 2020 NFL Draft, is also the best all-around athlete in the class. But in line with how he blossomed into an elite, dominant edge pass rusher at Ohio State, he’s all about being the best football player, not showing off as the best freak show. MORE: NFL Combine 2020 schedule, dates, workout times and records”Me and my team, we decided that, because the first day of (training) camp when I step on to the field, I want to be the best player I can be,” Young told reporters of his decision not to work out for NFL evaluators in Indianapolis on Saturday. “I don’t want to waste time being a Combine athlete.”For those expecting Young to run the 40-yard dash during Ohio State’s pro day on March 25, they’re also out of luck. Young will be doing only position drills related to him playing defensive end or outside linebacker, and not any of the speed or agility drills that parallel the main events of the Combine.The NFL deciding to take the Combine workouts to prime time hasn’t suddenly made more prospects want to jump through obligatory hoops for our offseason entertainment. In an era where draft hopefuls pull themselves out of meaningless season-ending bowl games to protect their futures, in an era of non-stop advanced training, it’s only natural to extend that to the Combine.Young doesn’t need to do anything in the pre-draft process to prove to anyone in the NFL what they already know: He’s a disruptive force of nature who can change the fortunes of an entire defense.”I definitely think I’m the best player in the draft,” Young said. “I think I showed it on my tape.” And then some. Young has provided plenty more conclusive video evidence, just not at the Combine. He continues to build on his legend with his real workouts with Gibson Performance Training in his home state of Maryland — not far from where he might be playing with the Redskins, who hold the No. 2 overall pick.PREPARATION IS KEY! WE WORKING! @youngchase907 pic.twitter.com/O8l5d8GMpJ— Gibson Performance Training (@GibsonTraining) February 20, 2020The NFL wants guys such as Young to help turn the Combine into a game-like event. Good for him for not obliging.We’ll just settle for watching Young rip up quarterbacks and ball-carriers for many years to come, soon enough.last_img read more
