About 30 minutes after the Salisbury men’s lacrosse team lost for only the sixth time in 18 trips to the NCAA Division III tournament final, 8-6 to Wesleyan on May 27, Jim Berkman was neither depressed nor bitter. In fact, the coach called the 2018 season “one of the most enjoyable years I’ve ever had at Salisbury.” Recently, Berkman elaborated on that statement.
“Losing all the goals that we did and all the stars on offense, to do what we did in 2018, I don’t know of any other coach that wouldn’t have traded for that,” he said. “It was a great season. The kids worked hard. They were all good teammates. No one gave up on each other. They kept pushing. It was just a really fun group to be around the entire season.” Berkman produced two examples for his sentiment. Senior midfielder Garrett Reynolds finished with 38 goals and five assists, but before the Sea Gulls’ postseason run, Berkman informed the Havre de Grace resident and Archbishop Curley graduate that he was being bumped down to the second line. And junior goalkeeper Anthony Stavrakis made five starts before being replaced by sophomore Brandon Warren.

Modern-day lacrosse is relatively new to Maine, on display at several small colleges and an increasing number of high schools in central and southern parts of the state. But 31-year-old Corey Hinton is taking the game back to those whose descendants played the original version of the sport centuries ago, often as a tool of diplomacy between Indian tribes. “There are stories of games being played between the Passamaquoddys and the Mohawks in Saint Andrews, New Brunswick,” said Hinton, a member of the Passamaquoddy Tribe based in Down East Maine. He grew up in New York, but his father’s side of the family originally was from the Pleasant Point reservation — or Sipyak — located between Perry and Eastport. “There’s one game in particular that people talk about. I don’t know all of the backstory there, but I know that the Mohawks wouldn’t have traveled all the way up this way unless there was something to be resolved, and this was a way that conflicts were resolved.”
You don’t grind, you don’t shine.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?
Air travel with your furry companion just got a whole lot easier thanks to the installation of a permanent pet restroom at Terminal D in Philadelphia International Airport this week. The new “Animal Relief Area” is the first of several that the airport plans to unveil over the next couple of years. One is slated to open in Terminal E in late 2019, with others for terminals A-West, B, and C expected by 2020.
If you're traveling through #PHLairport with your furry friend, a new permanent Animal Relief Area has opened in Terminal D near Gate D-3. There are Animal Relief Areas inside every terminal and outside as well ➡️ https://t.co/9z7fLsr2t1 pic.twitter.com/IsSOZDtS5q— PHLAirport (@PHLAirport) June 21, 2018
The dream of boldly going where only a few have gone before has inspired hundreds of people to sign up with space tourism companies like Virgin Galactic. But Nasa astronaut Anna Fisher, who made history by becoming the first mother in space, has warned many are unprepared for the rigours of spaceflight and the toll it will take on their bodies.
Dr Fisher said she was sick for the first two days of her mission on the Discovery space shuttle in 1984 and said she was concerned that people paying hundreds of thousands of pounds did not fully appreciate what might happen.
Speaking to The Telegraph as she was made godmother to the new Viking Orion ship, she said: “The one thing I am concerned about with tourists in space is people thinking you can just get on a rocket and just go into space. “It’s not like riding a commercial aircraft, not at all, and I can see all these problems with people up there and throwing up and messing up somebody’s flight that they paid $250,000 for.
