first_img December 24, 2015 By: Frances Wolf, First Lady First Lady Frances Wolf,  Holidays,  The Blog This Christmas, families across Pennsylvania will gather at dining tables, in churches, and around Christmas trees; we will join grandparents, cousins, neighbors, and friends; we will bake cookies, sing carols, and enjoy the holiday… each in our own special way. As Pennsylvanians we come together through each of our own traditions. Read more about Wolf family Christmas traditions in this PennLive article.Check out this video from the annual Holiday Open House at the Governor’s Residence earlier this month.Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf SHARE Email Facebook Twittercenter_img In the Wolf-Donnelly family, we have come to cherish our Christmas traditions. They are nothing fancy, exotic, or spectacular — but they are our own, and I look forward to them every year.This year, we are blessed to have our daughters, Sarah and Katie, as well as Katie’s husband Jamie and their 10-month-old Golden Retriever puppy, at home in York County. They will come in from Brooklyn and San Francisco to spend Christmas with us.Sarah and Katie handle the baking each Christmas. Their Christmas cookies of choice are simple but delicious: classic chocolate chip, of course, and peanut butter with — what else — Hershey’s Kisses on top. On Christmas Eve, our family joins us at our home in Mount Wolf, and the girls and Jamie will exchange their gifts. But they have to wait until the next morning to receive their presents from Tom and me. Tom will turn on Handel’s Messiah, and we will take a look at what Santa brought that night. Later on Christmas Day, we visit Tom’s parents, and continue our celebrations there.While the cookies, the music, and the tree make our holiday bright and cheery, what is most important to me each year is being together.Merry Christmas from all of us in the Wolf family. May your holiday be filled with love, peace, and happiness. BLOG: Wolf-Donnelly Family Christmas Traditionslast_img read more

Is Serena Williams the greatest female athlete of all time?

first_imgby Kenneth MillerThe forever evolving rags to riches journey of the world’s No. 1 women’s tennis player Serena Williams is beginning to catapult into a sports stratosphere where only the elite athletes of all-time hang out.After winning her 9th singles championship in 2013, the younger sister of Venus Williams is not just relishing in the soils of her impressive U.S. Open championship, but also bidding to become the greatest female athlete in history.Don’t trip over your tennis racquets just yet, but after Grand Slam title number 17 to move to within 7 of all-time Margaret Court’s 24, the 31-year old who learned the game on the uneven asphalt courts of Compton is smoothly gliding into rare territory.From the time she was the No. 1 ranked on the junior United States Tennis Association tour at 10-years old when she blistered competition in rolling to a 46-3 record, Serena Williams loved the taste of winning.Daddy Richard rolled out the older Venus first, breaking age barriers at 14 on October 31, 1994, but while incubating the gem that was to follow at the same age in 1995.Now, all grown up and having surpassed Venus in the sibling rivalry and striking the fear of God into ever opponent she faces on any surface, grass, hard-court or clay, it’s time to examine her alongside the greatest female athletes ever.Keep in mind that Serena is far from being done as a professional tennis player and in addition to enduring a recent life health scare has also had to carry the weight of the murder of her sister Yetunde Price and the divorce of her parents Richard and Oracene.She has a combined 31 career major championships including doubles competition with sister Venus and four Olympic gold medals, including two singles.Her lofty credentials include winning 80 percent of her career tournaments, 79 of 99 and on every surface; 34 on hard court; 10 on clay; 6 on grass and 5 on carpet.Moreover, she has captured the most prestigious Wimbledon and U.S. Open championships five times each.Oh, by the way she owns a career .500 record against arguably the greatest women’s player of all time Steffi Graf.She has earned close to $60 million in prize money plus another $30 million endorsements for a cool $90 million.The only argument that anyone can have against Serena as the best female athlete of all time, is that she’s feisty, confident, soulful and sexy –all the more reason for me to love her.Many would consider the best female athlete to be Jackie Joyner-Kersee who was the first American to win gold for the long jump and the first woman to earn more than 7,000 points in the seven-event heptathlon. She’s ultimately won three golds, a silver and two bronze, making her the most decorated female athlete in Olympic track and field history.Following Joyner-Kersee would have to be the late Florence Griffith-Joyner, also known as “Flo Jo,” who starred at the 1984 Summer Olympics winning a silver medal in the 200-meter run. During the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, South Korea, Griffith-Joyner took home three gold medals and a silver. She still holds world records in the 100 and 200 meters.Althea Gibson opened the doors for Serena and Venus. Her great talent was in tennis, but in the 1950s, most tournaments were closed to African-Americans. Gibson kept playing until her skills could no longer be denied, and became the first African American to play at Wimbledon.“I have never regarded myself as a crusader. I don’t consciously beat the drums for any cause, not even the negro in the United States,” Gibson said of her pioneering efforts.Wilma Rudolph would certainly have to be in the conversation. Born a sickly child who had to wear a brace on her left leg, Rudolph She overcame her disabilities through physical therapy and hard work, and went on to Rudolph became the first American woman to win three gold medals at a single Olympics in 1960, at the Summer Games in Rome.Another track and field sensation Allyson Felix earned back-to-back Olympic silver medals at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. She earned her first gold that year, with the women’s 4-by-400-meter relay team. Felix became a three-time Olympic gold medalist in 2012; at the 2012 Olympic Games in London, she won two gold medals, in the women’s 200 and the 4-by-100-meter relay.Alice Coachman made history at the 1948 Olympics in London when leapt to a record-breaking height of 5 feet, 6 and 1/8 inches in the high jump finals to become the first Black woman to win an Olympic gold medal, but that alone would not even qualify her as best.Basketball icon Sheryl Swoopes would have to be in the mix. Swoopes was the first professional basketball player signed by the WNBA and was often referred to as the female Michael Jordan.Swoopes won three Olympic gold medals and is a multiple WNBA MVP. She is also the first woman to have a Nike shoe named after her.Another hoop star Teresa Edwards won four Olympic gold medals (1984, 1988, 1996, 2000) – an Olympic record — and a bronze medal (1992). Edwards also won the USA Basketball Player of the Year in 1987 and 1991.WNBA professional basketball player, Lisa Leslie-LockwoodCheryl Miller’s achievements on the basketball court are undeniable. She was a four-time All-American, and she also won three Naismith Player of the Year trophies while at USC.However, Lisa Leslie-Lockwood is probably considered the best basketball player ever.Leslie-Lockwood was a three-time WNBA MVP and a four-time Olympic gold medal winner. She was considered a pioneer and cornerstone of the league during her WNBA career. In 2011, she was voted in by fans as one of the Top 15 players in WNBA history.Billy Jean King won a wealth of Grand Slam titles in singles tournaments, doubles tournaments, and even occasionally in tournaments that she didn’t even attend, but it doubtful she could beat Serena.Let the debating begin, but in the meantime I consider it Serena-Love!Special to the NNPA from the Los Angeles Sentine– See more at: http://www.blackpressusa.com/serenas-world-is-tennis-diva-serena-williams-greatest-female-athlete/#sthash.vCqSt3yc.dpuflast_img read more
