Beach, Fabien Cousteau Ocean Learning Center and art teacher Laura Swan's "Stewards of the Sea," assisted by Long Beach High School student Harry Murphy. It brought members of the community together to make an environmental study of the debris found on our shoreline. Litter in various forms was removed and registered carefully to help preserve the beach's natural beauty and cleanliness.The middle school art students were requested by Cousteau to take the efforts a step further and make a "trash sculpture" from the debris that was collected. Thanks to the efforts of the beach maintenance crew, they assembled sanitized pieces of trash to form the image of a "sea person" that illustrates nature's magnificence while spreading awareness about protection of the waters. They appropriately titled the piece, "Salvaged Riva," as Riva means "from the shore" in French.Materials such as bottle caps, beach toys, plastic lids, balloons and more were thoroughly washed and separated into categories. The students used these, as well as natural elements like shells and driftwood, to create their design over a paper mache foundation. Even the backdrop, a painting featuring colors of the ocean, was a discarded item repurposed for the project."After almost three decades of creating art with my students, this piece was extra special," said Ms. Swan. "The artwork makes a strong statement of love for and destruction of our waters and how items that comfort us and make our lives 'easier' are sadly found in our seas."Fabien Cousteau, an aquanaut, ocean conservationist, and documentary filmmaker related to the famous Jacques Yves-Cousteau, joined New York State Assemblywom...

He did a great job."Arkansas' opportunity turned to nothing after first baseman Ryan Casteel popped up to catcher Sean Murphy, designated hitter Marcus Littlewood struck out, and third baseman Seth Mejias-Brean flied out to left fielder Tyler Ramirez to end the inning without a run and a 1-0 deficit."We know what we have to do," Taylor said. "We have to execute in situations like that, and when we don't, it's frustrating. You know, ain't nobody trying to get out, but it's been like that all year. We just can't seem to execute with people on base. It's why we lose when we lose, and we're better than that."Taylor, who hit .386 through May, batted a combined .197 in June and July. In his past nine games, he has hit .324."In baseball, sometimes you ride that roller coaster," he said. "Right now, I'm just confident. I haven't really changed anything. I'm just confident swinging at good pitches."Midland took a 1-0 lead with one out in the top of the first inning when center fielder B.J. Boyd hit a home run to right field.Two more runs came in for Midland in the fourth after Boyd led off with a single, second baseman Max Schrock was hit by a pitch, and Boyd scored on an error by second baseman Nelson Ward after he misplayed a toss from catcher Tyler Marlette when Schrock stole second. Schrock scored on left fielder Tyler Ramirez's two-out single for a 3-0 lead.Midland's lead was 4-0 after right fielder J.P. Sportman's sixth-inning single scored Schrock from third base.Arkansas managed a run in the bottom of the sixth inning when, with one out and runners on second and third, Mejias-Brean's sacrifice fly to right field scored Casteel.The Travs got another bases-loaded chance in the eighth inning.
