His standard line was, family not for sale, but the rest is negotiable. in 1925, Maurice Seigel took over the family shoe store at 129 Dundas St. in 1954. To that store, he added a landmark warehouse at Clarence and York streets and settled in for decades of putting shoes on people feet.

Farmers, factory workers, businesspeople Seigel had shoes for everyone in one of the most competitive retail markets around.

In downtown heydays of the 1970s and 1980s, there were 16 shoe stores in a block and a half, Jeff Seigel remembers.

Seigel donated hundreds of pairs of shoes to the annual Hadassah Bazaar, and made sure immigrants moving to London got proper footwear, his son said.

Closing the downtown store in 1998 was a difficult decision, but his father realized the market had changed for shoes.

After retiring, main concern was making sure his wife was taken care of, working around the house, Jeff Seigel said.

In a testament to his father love of family and need to work hard, Jeff Seigel went in to his own shoe store on Saturday; he needed to take his mind off his father death: family is taking it very, very hard.

PASADENA, Texas (AP) ” The line snakes on and on, along a wall inside the shopping mall, each person in search of help after a hurricane swamped their town.

As they wait, they ruminate.

Samantha Cusson, a 31 year old mother of two, found out just before Harvey hit that she’s pregnant with a third. She worries about finding a doctor for checkups and wonders when the Subway shop she works at will reopen. When it finally does, she wonders who she’ll find to baby sit her girls after the storm scattered those she turned to, and how she’ll get to work, since her car was flooded. Her next check will be a pittance, the rent is already overdue, and there are no savings.

Most of all, she worries about shielding her children from the reality that washed in.”I can’t show it,” she said of her apprehensions. at the makeshift relief center in this community southeast of Houston, and already some 150 people are queued up for supplies. The line stretches through the mall entrance back into a deserted office,

where those who wait are presented a checklist of items they need, from toilet paper to blankets to clothing. They’ll wind through banks of cubicles where volunteers have sorted clothes into sizes, and amassed all sorts of things ” school supplies, dog food, walkers.

Beth Bronikowsky hopes to find a pair of shoes. After her apartment flooded, the 39 year old sloshed around barefoot until her stepfather found a pair of aqua shoes for her. She already had enough on her plate, having suffered a stroke that has her walking with a wooden cane and making frequent trips to the doctor. Now, she’s preoccupied with the loss of most of her belongings, not to mention the growing stink of mold at home and the nagging feeling she’ll have to find a new place.

Her mom, Norma Fexer, says she’s lucky to have only 5 inches of water in her southeast Houston home, but her carpets and floors were ruined. Fexer, 65, has no flood insurance and knows she’ll have to do the repairs piece by piece, all while worrying another storm could come.

sports polo shirts Group stole thousands of dollars of merchandise from store

Police said the group was stealing items from the Nike Store at the Merrimack Premium Outlets for about 90 minutes, making frequent trips in and out. Police said they brought their own bags, filled them up and left with more than $3,600 worth of sneakers and clothes.

“This is clearly not their first time doing it,” Lt. Denise Roy said.

“It would appear as though one person was in charge of placing the items in the bag while the others would stand around and cause a little shield for the person,” Roy said. “Then, the bag would be handed to somebody else. They would exit the store, empty it and come back.”

After nearly 90 minutes, police said, there was an unusual twist.

“When they were actually done with the shoplifting, one of the females entered the store again and indicated her child was missing,” Roy said.

Store personnel and mall security started looking for the child, but police said they don’t believe there ever was a child to begin with.

“Something could have spooked them,” Roy said. “Very likely, an employee approached them, so they left area, thinking to themselves, ‘If we cause this diversion, no one will coming looking for us.'”

polo stays He’s Puzzled About What Tie Goes With Shirt

The Color Purple: He’s Puzzled About What Tie Goes With ShirtPERSONAL STYLE THE FASHION ADVISER

February 12, 1998By Jean Patteson of The Sentinel Staff

QUESTION: I was given a purple dress shirt by my new girlfriend. She keeps urging me to wear the shirt, and I keep delaying. The truth is, I haven’t a clue what color tie to wear with it, but I don’t want to appear fashion impaired by admitting that I’m clueless. What color would you suggest?

ANSWER: Purple is a popular color in mens wear at present, and you shouldn’t have too much trouble finding a tie to go with your shirt. There are many shades of purple, however, so take the shirt with you when you go shopping for a tie to help you match the shades. Also, don’t be shy to ask the sales staff for their help and opinions.

Now for those color suggestions. If your shirt is:

Solid purple. Choose a tie that is a shade darker or lighter than the shirt and has a different texture or finish. For example, if the shirt is smooth and matte, look for a tie with shiny finish or nubby texture.

Mostly purple. Try a tie with a purple background, patterned in a contrasting color or colors.

A touch of purple. This may be the easiest choice. He is an easy going man, but his wife is a stickler for what’s proper.” The men and women in my office are real uptight about wearing the wrong thing and upsetting her. A: First of all, if your boss’s wife is such a stickler for what’s proper then she should know that a hostess should aim to make her guests feel at ease, no matter what they are wearing. If you and your colleagues make every effort to look nice, you should have no reason to feel uptight. So relax and enjoy the party.

But back to Florida casual.” Because Florida is an exceptionally casual place, and because a barbecue is a particularly informal kind of party, I would interpret the invitation to mean that it is OK to wear the most informal kind of dress jeans, shorts, T shirts, denim skirts, sarongs, sundresses, sandals, boots,
us polo assn shirts for men He's Puzzled About What Tie Goes With Shirt
boat shoes and so on.

Just make sure the jeans aren’t faded or torn, the T shirts don’t have risque slogans, the shorts and skirts aren’t too short, the sundresses too bare, or the shoes too worn. This is essentially a business event, after all.

If you prefer to play it safe, forget the jeans and sundresses. I suggest the men wear walk shorts or khakis, polo or sport shirts, and dressy casual shoes such as loafers. It doubtless would make a good impression on your hostess if they were to throw on a blazer or sport coat which they could remove after their arrival if your boss is jacketless.

Walk shorts and casual pants also would work for the women, as would casual but modest skirts and dresses, plus sandals or flat slip ons. Of course, keep the weather in mind.

And no one need shy away from bright colors and bold patterns. Those are always appropriate in the Sunshine State.

ucd water polo Hall of Fame seeks new ways to tell Packers’ story

design polo shirt Hall of Fame seeks new ways to tell Packers’ story

A Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame exhibit of Antonio Freeman’s shoes and gloves.(Photo: Jim Matthews/Press Gazette Media)Brett Favre’s induction into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame could have provided a financial windfall. But the nearly 50 year old organization decided instead to treat the event like all of its previous induction ceremonies. Mostly.

Granted, it did make 67,000 more seats available for the event, but the money from those tickets is going to charity.

“Even though it’s Brett, we didn’t want to get away from what we do every year,” said Perry Kidder, the Hall’s president. “We are not out to turn Brett’s induction into a money grab.”

Revenue from the sold out induction banquet will support the organization as it always does, but net proceeds from tickets sold to bowl attendees will be donated to the Favre 4 Hope charitable foundation.

Revenue from its two annual fundraisers the Packers Hall of Fame Golf Classic and the induction banquet funds the organization’s efforts to be the archivist and repository of Packers history. It also gets corporate sponsorship for events.

Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc. is a nonprofit independent of the Packers and is managed by a 20 member board of directors and a seven member executive committee. there are six remain on the board but cannot vote. Directors become emeritus directors when they turn 75. If they are in the midst of a three year term, they are allowed to complete it.

The organization’s bylaws allow up to 30 directors, but it’s not a figurehead appointment.

“We don’t take any letterhead directors. They have to work,” said Dennis Tattum, the Hall’s vice president and effectively its executive director.

For example, he said, the Hall can’t just use a Vince Lombardi quote because, Yogi Berra like, somebody said he said it.

“A lot of work goes into it,” Kidder said. “We can’t put a Lombardi quote in the Hall of Fame unless we know he said it.”

Three staff members, led by business office manager Gwen Borga, handle day to day operations.

The Packers operate the museum, a task they assumed when the Hall of Fame moved to the Lambeau Field Atrium from the Brown County Veterans Memorial Complex in 2003.

The organizations work closely and are talking about extending their relationship for another 25 years.

“We basically understand each other’s needs,” Tattum said.

Artifacts there are thousands belong to the Hall of Fame. Many are not on display. The organization continues to collect uniforms, programs, photos, home movies and other items to document the team’s history. It’s a never ending quest, immeasurably abetted by the generosity of Packers fans around the world.

(Photo: Photo courtesy of Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame)

“We’ve been offered so many things, just as pure donation,” said Thomas Murphy, a member of the Hall’s board. “I can’t imagine the fans of any other sports franchise would donate so many significant pieces over the years.”

There are a lot of dedicated Packers fans and relatives of fans who believe the Hall of Fame is the best place for cherished items, but board members are considering something they’ve never done before: making targeted acquisitions to fill gaps in its collection.

“You’ll see things come up at some of these auctions and think maybe that’s something we should bring home to Green Bay,” Murphy said. “Where would that fill a key gap we may have?”

(Photo: Photo courtesy of Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame)

The group also has discussed a traveling Hall of Fame exhibit because so many artifacts aren’t being seen.

Artifacts are being bar coded and entered on a database, which will give the Hall and the Packers a better picture of the collection.

ralph lauren polo boat shoes Green Bay Packers tackle Bryan Bulaga out for season with knee injury

GREEN BAY The Green Bay Packers began Monday game against the Detroit Lions with their starting offensive line intact for just the second time all season. And now, after a serious injury for right tackle Bryan Bulaga, it will not happen again in 2017.

Bulaga dropped out of the game in the fourth quarter and will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury, according to coach Mike McCarthy. Bulaga limped heavily on his way to the bench and was later carted to the locker room after a brief evaluation on the sideline. The Packers ruled him out almost immediately, and a report from NFL Network said Bulaga tore the ACL in his right knee.

have bad news on Bryan Bulaga, McCarthy said Tuesday. very unfortunate. He will be lost for the season with his knee injury. He had a stretch of bad luck this year. It started with the ankle injury there in training camp. I feel bad for him. I thought he had clearly come off his best season last year. Tough news today. Bulaga tore the ACL in his left knee during a training camp practice in 2013, costing him the entire season, and underwent another surgery on the left knee after tearing cartilage in 2015, missing three more games.

Bulaga already had been sidelined three games in 2017 with the aforementioned ankle injury before reportedly tearing his ACL against the Lions. He also suffered a concussion earlier this season that did not cost him any playing time.

Without Bulaga, the Packers turned once again to Justin McCray to finish Monday game. McCray, who played in the Arena Football League before signing with the Packers during the offseason, received lofty praise from McCarthy last week as a player in the heart of MVP consideration if the team issued an award for the first half of the year. McCray has been asked to fill both guard positions and both tackle spots during the regular season, and in training camp the coaches worked him at center, too.

As tackles Jason Spriggs (hamstring) and Kyle Murphy (ankle) were placed on injured reserve, it opened the door for McCray to inherit the utility role crucial for every offensive line. The coaches have tailored McCray reps in practice to reflect his wide range of responsibilities.

definitely make sure I get enough reps everywhere, McCray said after the loss to Detroit. I stay after with (offensive line coach James) Campen to do some extra things, but I definitely feel comfortable wherever I get in at.

just go in there and work on the things we been working on all week. Make sure that we don have a drop off when I get in there. He was seen limping off the field under his own power with a member of the medical staff at his side, and the Packers announced it as an ankle injury.

McCray was in the facility Tuesday for treatment, according to McCarthy, and they will monitor his progress during the week.

be fine, McCray said after the game. is good. In addition to McCray, who has started multiple games this season, the Packers could turn to Spriggs, a former second round pick. The Packers have used one of their two designated to return spots on Spriggs, who injured his hamstring in Week 1, and he will be eligible to play next week against the Baltimore Ravens.

Safety Morgan Burnett also will be unavailable for Sunday game against the Bears, according to McCarthy. Burnett dropped out of the game with a groin injury in the third quarter and did not return. Lions: Week 9 photos.

Even as media planners are, by and large, dismissive of men’s magazines, Gentleman, Man’s World, and now IAGT from the Times Group insist the market is slated for big growthIAGT, the men’s magazine from the Times Group which hits stands this month as a bi monthly for Rs 30, displays an editorial orientation suggestive of the erstwhile Mantra, a fashion consciousness associated with Man’s World and a production quality reminiscent of Gentleman. Considering the meager space occupied by men’s magazines in India, it is perhaps inevitable for newcomers to step on to one another’s toes. At the same time, it has always provoked a bigger question: is there a market at all?

The two prominent names in men’s magazines Gentleman and Man’s World are certainly in sync with Bhaskar Das’ (director, Times Group) gutfeel of a social inflection point, and thus, the need for men’s magazines (though they don’t put it in those very words). They say the market is slated to grow big any time now. And that serious positioning platforms are only beginning to emerge. Man’s World, the most premium of the three (Rs 50), claims to have crossed the 40,000 copies mark in its first year. The 20 year old Gentleman, the oldest of the lot, has been restructuring itself under a new editor and publisher, to swap its earlier set of readers for new ones. It claims a readership of 3 lakh copies, citing a whopping ten readers per copy.

Media planners though, remain skeptic. “In my last six years in (media) planning, men’s magazines have been a catastrophic experiment,” remarks Atul Phadnis, associate media director, strategy, Starcom. One of the bigger reasons cited against men’s magazines is the fact that readership of most other magazines happens to be largely male anyway (including women’s magazines). “All magazines by default have a male readership,” says Rajib Sarkar, editor and publisher, Gentleman. Femina, one of the bigger names in women’s magazines, has a male readership to the extent of 40 per cent, according to Das.

“So when it comes to reaching out to men, advertisers already have vehicles that do that,” admits Sarkar. “Men have a wide range of interests and they would rather read about women than about themselves,” reasons Phadnis. Along with reading about women, the looking at women category (Debonair, Fantasy) has done considerably well. But proponents of men’s magazines argue that today, Indian men are displaying a need to read about themselves. It is dictated by changes in incomes and lifestyles brought along by a growing economy, they say. “Men are beginning to think beyond work,” says N. Radhakrishnan, editor and publisher,
polo gift set Has the time come
Man’s World. “Look at book publishing today,” he says. “Penguin has a new title virtually every week.” Sarkar looks at his audience in the top tier of Maslow’s pyramid. “Their immediate physical needs are all taken care of,” he says.

These publishers also cite growth in the related fields of men’s fashion and lifestyle accessories branded apparel, branded shoes, premium watches, perfumes, new automobiles as proof of business interest. But why should marketers of these products place their advertising with men’s magazines when they already use mainstream publications? Editorial environment. That is their weapon. “We call ourselves the third tier of magazines after news and current affairs, and business magazines,” explains Radhakrishnan. “The NRS study now has something called the MPX which measures the intensity of reading,” explains Sarkar. “It is about how emotionally involved you are with the magazine. That is where we score.” Das is in agreement. “Increasingly, advertising is judged by the impact it creates, besides reach and OTS. Advertisers are placing their ads given the expected level of audience engagement.”

That is where the players in this field are trying to carve out individual spaces before the action hots up. Gentleman’s Sarkar is an engineering and MBA student who had joined Express Publications (Madurai) as one of its first brand managers in 1996, before being made the publisher of Gentleman over two years back and given additional charge as editor last year. Sarkar is trying to reinvent a magazine whose circulation dipped below 20,000 copies at one point. “I had a good understanding of what revenues it could generate, and therefore, the cost structure we had to adopt,” he recalls. “I had to develop an impulse about where the brand should go.”

Sarkar began by cutting costs last year. The staff was restructured, production costs rationalized, new MBAs recruited for space selling, and the editorial changed drastically to resemble Gentleman’s first phase under founder editor Minhas Merchant. “It is an awareness magazine for men,” explains Sarkar. “It is awareness riding arts and culture.” The literary bent coming into the magazine and the declining gloss is a far cry from the days of Gentleman’s second editor, Manek Davar. “I almost call it a book zine,” says Sarkar. “Manek positioned it for lifestyle and leisure. He tried to make it like GQ. We made a mistake of becoming more like GQ and Esquire. In India, we can’t get Esquire’s circulation to match its content and production quality.”

Man’s World’s head of marketing, Nikhil Seth, sure believes he can. He says Man’s World tries to match Esquire on all possible fronts. If Gentleman is more of a ‘read’ magazine, Man’s World attempts to be a ‘look read’ magazine, according to Radhakrishnan. Given its glossy production quality, Rs 50 was the minimum cover price that the magazine could think of. “The editorial treatment is more tongue in cheek,” believes Seth. One of the magazine’s other strengths, says Radhakrishnan, is its resource pool of columnists that contribute. “We are carrying excerpts from Ruchir Joshi’s latest book which is out only later this year,” he adds. The 164 pager comprises 30 32 paid ads, claims Radhakrishnan. A prominent part of Man’s World’s editorial canvas comprises personality pieces.

The distinguishing factor for IAGT, claims Times’ Carol Andrade, would again lie in the editorial treatment. “Men can be addressed as louts, lads and lords,” she says. “We are taking everyone into consideration.” Times’ confidence is also explained by the half a year old Bombay Times JLT (just like that), a youth (15 22 year old) magazine bearing tremendous resemblance to JAM (just another magazine). “We are selling 16,000 copies in Mumbai,” claims Das. “There is no individual room for youth in most marketers’ plans, but he commands an attitude.”

“This segment will grow as an option for marketers looking for very niche marketing opportunity,
polo gift set Has the time come
” believes Radhakrishnan. He explains niche in terms of both the circulation numbers and the editorial scope before men’s magazines. This is again where all three are in agreement. Big numbers for men’s magazines still remain a distant dream. Loyalty of readership is something all three will be gunning for. But only if each begins to exude a distinct personality.

polo blue for women Group sues city over clothing donation bins

finish line polo boots Group sues city over clothing donation bins

A California nonprofit group filed a federal lawsuit against the city of Denton last week, saying city officials violated constitutional protections of free speech, equal protection and due process by effectively banning clothing donation bins in the city limits.

The Green Education Foundation, which is based in San Jose, California, is known for providing environmental education programs to schools. The foundation refurbishes shipping containers to serve as its free standing donation bins. It powers the bins with solar panels and outfits them with cameras and other electronics to monitor donations and conditions at the site.

The foundation has about 85 bins placed in other cities around the country and in Texas, including nearby McKinney and Colleyville. The nonprofit group sells the donated goods clothing, shoes, books, toys and other household goods for about 38 cents a pound to help fund its programs.

The foundation estimated it has lost, and continues to lose, donations in Denton because the city staff effectively has banned the bins, according to court documents.

The city has not yet been served with the lawsuit. City officials declined to comment further on the case, according to city spokeswoman Jessica Rogers.

In July 2014, the foundation applied for and received a special waste hauler’s permit to place a donation bin at the Denton Crossing shopping center, near Loop 288 and Brinker Road. From August to December 2014, residents put more than 61,000 pounds of clothing,
polo blue for women Group sues city over clothing donation bins
shoes, toys, books and other goods in the bin.

Soon after issuing the permit, city staff members notified the foundation the city would revoke the permit and not renew it for 2015.

Staff members told the foundation the permit had been issued by a new employee who didn’t know donation bins were not allowed in Denton, according to court documents.

The City Council hasn’t banned donation bins by ordinance, nor does the city’s development code regulate donation bins.

Instead, the city requires groups such as the Green Education Foundation to apply for a special waste hauler’s permit.

The foundation is one of several nonprofits that operate clothing donation bins. Some bins are operated by for profit businesses.

But all are trying to capture some of the estimated 21 billion pounds of textiles clothes, shoes, bedding and more that people discard into landfills around the country each year.

Because the bins are unattended, they can become eyesores as donations pile up around them. Sometimes, the bins get tagged with graffiti.

Some donors get upset when the bins aren’t clearly marked and they discover their donation went to a business and not to a charity.

Donations to other charities, such as Goodwill Industries and the Salvation Army, have declined in some communities after donation bins are installed, according to Daniel P. Dalton, the foundation’s attorney. These troubles have triggered some cities to step in and try to restrict or ban free standing donation bins, like the ones the foundation operates.

Some of those bans and restrictions already have been challenged in other courts. Whether the city or the charity has more case law on its side remains to be seen.

The foundation is asking the court for an injunction, so that it can re install its donation bin at Denton Crossing. The foundation is also asking for $75,000 in damages and for a judgment that says banning this kind of donation bin violates First Amendment protections.

lakewood ranch polo club HEADStrong Foundation benefits from Essex Tech boys lax game vs

DANVERS Goals were hard to come by Saturday night.

Just when it appeared as though the game might be headed to overtime, visiting Northeast Regional scored a late one to edge Essex Tech, 6 5.

The two teams played the game for the HEADStrong Foundation, a nonprofit that helps raise funds for those suffering from cancer. Nearly $1,800 was raised for the cause.

Lime green was the color of the day, with coaches wearing bright T shirts with the color, while several players on both teams donned lime green socks. Hawks attackman Brandon Swaczyk went one step further, wearing lime green shoes and netting on his stick to match.

Essex Tech (now 6 7)had some good chances to tie it up in the final two minutes. Their best bid came on a scramble for a loose ball in the Knights’ crease, but before anyone from the home team could jam it home, Northeast goalie Jack McIntyre raked the ball away from his crease.

The Hawks called a timeout to settle things down,
pocket polo shirts HEADStrong Foundation benefits from Essex Tech boys lax game vs
but as a steady rain fell they were unable to get another good shot on net before time expired.

After the two teams shook hands, players went to the middle of the field for a team picture of both the Blue (Essex Tech) and Gold (Northeast).

“This was a tough one to lose. Goals were certainly hard to come by all game,” said Hawks coach Jeff Comeau.

“All year long we’ve had a good team effort, and this one was no different. Midfielder Hunter Lane (assist) gave us a big spark all game and pushed the pace in transition. Gino Bonaventura and Jake Heath were solid on defense, too.”

The Knights (4 4) took an early lead, but the Hawks scored three unanswered goals in the third quarter to knot it up at 5 5. It remained tied until late in the final quarter when Anthony Vozzella fired a long shot past Essex Tech goalie Ryan McGregor for what proved to be the game winner. It came two seconds after the Hawks had killed off a penalty for unnecessary roughness.

Swaczyk scored a pretty goal with just over a minute gone when he scooped up a ground ball and raced in alone for a quick 1 0 lead. But Knights captain John Keats answered with the next three scores before Essex Tech captain Tom Anderson took a pass from Swaczyk and beat McIntyre to cut the deficit to 3 2 at the end of the first quarter.

The only goal in the next 12 minutes was by Vozzella, giving Northeast a 4 2 lead at the half. McGregor made a huge save on Mike Mangino in the final 10 seconds of the second quarter to keep his team close.

Keats notched his fourth of the game with four minutes gone in the third quarter, but the Hawks went on a run by scoring the next three goals to knot it up. Anderson had two in the span of two minutes for the hat trick before Brendan Ahern fired in a long shot to make it 5 5. McIntyre robbed Swaczyk in the final minute of the quarter to keep the game tied.

Penalties killed some of that momentum as ET was called for infractions three times in the final 12 minutes.

“(Long stick middie) Will Connolly had a strong game. He and Hunter allowed us to go on that run in the third quarter to get back in the game,” said Comeau. “That Kent is a great player for them. We played him in tight all game, but he was able to get away.”
