Haberdasher Hangs His Hat Again in Sea Bright

first_imgBy Michele J. KuhnSEA BRIGHT – In a sense, Brian George is back home.After three months in temporary quarters in Rumson, the longtime area haberdasher has moved his Northshore Menswear shop back to the borough in a new location at 1127 Ocean Ave.After refurbishing the space, George is now ensconced in a building he has nicknamed “big yellow.Brian George, owner of Northshore, stands in his new store at 1127 Ocean Ave. days before moving back to Sea Bright.“If you’re looking for us, just look for the ‘big yellow’ building,” he said recently with a smile as he was preparing to move back to Sea Bright.The store will continue to sell men’s “traditional clothing with a twist,” but is now reintroducing fashion for females. George previously sold women’s clothes but jettisoned that part of the business about eight years ago.When the official grand opening of Northshore is held on Saturday, April 6, George hopes to have space for four lines of women’s apparel – Vineyard Vines, Tori Richards, Island Company and Castaway. “My daughter, Mary, helped me put these lines together,” he said.Meanwhile, Northshore customers have been buying menswear in a makeshift store at 45 River Road in Rumson, in space meant for offices and using the men’s room to try on clothes.The space and his loyal customers have been good to George. The building is the same one he occupied 30 years ago – in three offices on the second floor – when he first opened his store and his customers have followed him there since his Sea Bright store at 1080 Ocean Ave. was substantially damaged and his entire inventory swept out by the tidal surge of Super Storm Sandy.“When the threat of the storm came, we never anticipated what would happen would happen, not in our wildest dreams,” George said. “The year before was Irene and all we got moisture.”Though he prepared for the Oct. 29 storm by putting merchandise higher up and boarding windows, the surge – coupled with extraordinary high winds – broke through. It filled the store with about 8 feet of water and then tore the shop’s contents out through huge gaping holes broken open by the tide along the building’s side wall.George’s merchandise and store fixtures, including two pool tables, were swept away.“I didn’t even have a chance to think … because we were going into the Christmas season. This is the retail business and the fourth quarter is 40 percent, sometimes 50 percent, of your sales and so I couldn’t afford to miss December,” he said. “I had nothing left.”George’s vendors were helpful and after about two weeks of planning and restocking he put together the temporary shop.George had flood insurance so he was able to pay the bills on merchandise that had just washed away and then started anew.He moved into the Rumson building on Dec. 1 and spent three months there. He closed the shop at the end of business on Feb. 27 and was expected to move the contents Feb. 28 and reopen March 1 in Sea Bright. “It has really worked out,” he said.George initially moved to Sea Bright about 10 years ago. He started in the building occupied by Cono’s Sea Bright Pizza, which he owned. When he sold that, he moved to 1080 Ocean Ave.Now he is in a building he has “always loved.” He calls it a “classic building … and it hasn’t changed much.”George has overseen the renovation of the space. There are white cabinets, hardwood floors, Oriental rugs and traditional mahogany furnishings.“I’m very proud of the way it looks … It’s nice and clean and kind of beachy,” he said. “We’re really excited.”George is a big supporter of Sea Bright. As an officer in the Businesses of Sea Bright group, he has high hopes for its rebuilding.“Believe it or not, behind the scenes in some of these buildings, there is cleaning up being done,” he said. “There is progress going on. But, the lifeblood of the town is in the downtown business district. Even the governor said, if the business district gets together, the whole town will feel better.”George is working to do just that.“I think Sea Bright will be better than ever. It’s just going to be a matter of time and people have to be patient.”last_img read more

Cricket will not forget Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi

first_imgFormer India captain Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi will be remembered for the touch of class which he brought to everything in life. An attacking batsman, fielder par excellence, astute captain and a true gentleman, he will be spoken of for his invaluable contributions long after his death.People talk of MS Dhoni as a bold captain.But Pataudi had, as early as 1968, instilled in the Indian team what it takes to win Test matches abroad. And even after losing an eye in a car accident, Pataudi fielded with aplomb.Unlike modern cricketers who don’t retire because of commercial reasons, he quit at his peak. Yet, he remained associated with the sport in various capacities, especially as the editor of Sportsworld, a well-known magazine.A regular at the capital’s Jaipur polo ground, ‘Tiger’ Pataudi couldn’t be missed on Sundays. His dress sense, famous hats and cigar were symbols of how he lived life, kingsize.last_img read more

World Cup 2018: Mbappe trolled for Neymar-like antics on the field

first_imgKylian Mbappe was trolled for ‘play-acting’ during France’s match against Uruguay in the quarter-finals of the 2018 World Cup in Nizhny Novgorod.The French forward, who has starred in this year’s World Cup for Les Blues so far, didn’t have a telling say in the quarters but his antics drew comparison with his club partner Neymar, who has been severely criticised for going to ground easily.Mbappe fell to the ground and wouldn’t get up in the 67th minute of the match, drawing boos from the crowd and soon hell broke out on the field as well. Diego Godin rushed to the spot and asked him to get up and he was soon confronted by the French players. Following that, all the players gathered around the area and a fight broke out almost before the referee and other officials managed to put an end to it and resume play. Mbappe accused Cristian Rodríguez of elbowing him and the Uruguayan was shown yellow. The French forward was also shown a yellow card for his role in the whole situation.REPORT | HIGHLIGHTSThis followed right after Fernando Muslera’s mistake from a Antoine Griezmann shot gave France the second goal. The rush from the Uruguayans players therefore was understandable. Play resumed and the game went on but the South Americans failed to score a single goal and were knocked out of the tournament.Mbappe was subbed off in the 88th minute, thus brining an end to his game on Friday. However, social media didn’t take his antics well and compared him with Neymar, who has been severely criticised for his behaviour in this year’s World Cup. According to RT Sport, the PSG striker has 14 minutes on the deck throughout the World Cup.advertisementAccording to the report, Neymar was down for five minutes and 29 seconds total in the match against Mexcio. The biggest interruption in the match came in the 72nd minute when he writhed about after Mexican Miguel Layun appeared to step on his ankle.Several trolls and memes have been circulating on the internet regarding the Brazilian and the 19-year-old Mbappe’s actions brought upon the same reaction. Clubmates at PSG, Mbappe was trolled for learning the ‘trick of the trade’ from Neymar.Kylian Mbappe channeling his inner Neymar Jr, singing (ala the late, great Whitney Houston)??????????I Learned from the Best, I learned from You?????? pic.twitter.com/E017PbK9rQSoogi Katende (@SoogiKatende) July 6, 2018Kylian Mbappe showing the world he’s graduated from Neymar’s school of diving.. pic.twitter.com/GdaDI6VqMVThe Football Arena (@BantsFootballFC) July 6, 2018Kylian Mbappe taking diving lesson from his club mate, Neymar.I’m happy France sent Uruguay packing tho #URUFRA pic.twitter.com/TLgUb0P9G3Highbee (@highbeely) July 6, 2018After France beat #Uruguay , Patrice Evra has told Kylian Mbappe not to copy Neymar’s flashy tricks.#WorldCupRussia #FRAURU pic.twitter.com/y32nDWdlVlsuleiman idris (@TimesNiger) July 6, 2018New entry to the #Neymar acting club is #KylianMbappe #FRAURGDarshan Suresh (@darshsuri) July 6, 2018Neymar JR & Kylian Mbappe#FRA #URU #URUFRA #WorldCup #WorldCup2018 pic.twitter.com/qFk048nKT4Komedi Futbol (@KomikFutbolcu) July 6, 2018Kylian Mbappé acting after a touch from RodriguezNeymar: Great job.

DOUBLE ACHIEVMENT FOR FAMILY COMBOS

first_imgWhen most people say `the family combo’ you think of KFC or your local fish and chip shop…but in this case I’m talking about the Australian Under 18 Development Camp.Remarkably, the group of 40 of Australia’s most promising Touch players contains 3 sibling combinations, with two of those being twins.There’s Steve Naughton and older brother Scott from the Southern Suns, quick stepping twins John and Maurice Kennedy and the Clarkson girls; Megan and Rebecca (good luck telling them apart!)All of the pairs are quick to agree they push each other competitively, each challenging the other and helping them to improve individually.“Being a twin often people assume there is rivalry, however in our case as much as we may look very much alike we are very different people with different personalities. We do not experience rivalry as such, but we are competitive and strive to do our best on every occasion and this brings the best out of each of us especially when we are playing together,” said Megan.The Clarkson twins are obviously excited about sharing this opportunity together. Rebecca, who represented QSST at the National Under 18 Championships, while Megan played for SunCoast, is excited about sharing the experience with her sister.“We’re both looking forward to having the opportunity to be coached by different people and to gain their knowledge and further insight into the game. We’re eager and ready for the intensity of the camp and the challenge of pushing ourselves to another height while improving our skill level,” said Rebecca. The Naughton brothers have shared their story with the Touch world before, having a story written on them at the 2005 National Under 18 Championships. When interviewed at that event, they were quick to agree that growing up together and playing together has definite advantages.“We both keep each other grounded, if one of us does something wrong the other isn’t afraid to let them know about it,” said Scott.“We read each other pretty well. Often we don’t even have to say anything and the other knows what we’re going to do,” said Steve.For twins John and Maurice Kennedy their selection alongside each other began with NSWCHS at the 2004 National Under 18 Championships.However, it was quickly put on hold when Maurice suffered a serious neck injury pre-tournament, an injury that could have ended his career right there and then.After two operations and extensive recovery and rehabilitation, Maurice was back on the Touch field, quick stepping his way to selection, again alongside his brother John for the 2005 NSWCHS side.They made their way to the grand final, where they were defeated by a red hot Southern Suns side, including the Naughton brothers.Despite the grand final loss, both John and Maurice were excited by their Australian selection and keen to make an impact at the camp. With all three family combos not only being pushed by the nature of the camp and the other players around them, the added incentive of competing alongside their brother or sister is also exciting.The Clarkson girls could be following in the steps of the Judd sisters, Barr sisters or Winchester girls.For the Naughton and Kennedy brothers, they could be the next Farrow brothers, McDonald brothers or Cheung brothers.Make sure you remember these young players, one day we may be seeing them taking the field for Australia together in a World Cup or Trans Tasman.last_img
