The Trackers will officially begin preparations for the new season towards the end of the month as the squad’s tryout camp will be held August 23-25 in Taylor. Brinsky’s credentials with B.C. Hockey made him ideal for the job according to Trackers General Manager Brant Leer.“Shawn is a long time B.C. Hockey high performance coaching coordinator and coach. Shawn has received the highest levels of high performance coaching with B.C. Hockey as well as being involved in B.C. Hockey high performance programs,” he said.Brinsky said being able to lead a team behind the bench is a unique opportunity and he hopes his teachings will help players not only this season but as they continue playing hockey in the future.- Advertisement -“Being a Head Coach of any team is a privilege. To have an opportunity to surround yourself with 18 or 19 hockey players that are like minded and working towards the same goal is an exciting thing. Hopefully to have some of these players move on in hockey and to think that maybe there’s something we did that assisted them, I don’t think there is anything more rewarding than that,” he explained.As for what kind of team will be on the ice, he admitted that will be dependant on the style of players that make up this season’s roster.“It can’t be addressed until you take a look at the team structure. I can say I want to be an offensively minded coach and develop a system around that but the reality is if the horses I have in the barn aren’t of that make then you have to adjust. The better way to approach it is to take a look at what we have in camp. There is so much that’s still undetermined,” Brinsky stated.Advertisement

The Samaritan Center, 280 Royal Ave., provides breakfast, showers, clean clothes and counseling from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. Monday through Friday. The Public Action to Deliver Shelter sites began operating Nov. 1 in Simi Valley, offering overnight shelter beginning at 8 p.m. to the homeless at the following locations: Sundays – Knights of Columbus Hall, 1255 E. Patricia Ave. Mondays – Seventh-day Adventist Church, 1636 Sinaloa Road. Tuesdays – Trinity Lutheran Church, 2949 Alamo St. Wednesdays – Simi Valley Presbyterian Church, 4832 Cochran St. Thursdays – Simi Valley Community Church, 2000 Royal Ave. Fridays – Our Savior Lutheran Church, 4191 Cochran St. Saturdays – United Methodist Church, 2394 Erringer Road. SIMI VALLEY – The homeless are hard to find in Simi Valley, but come winter, some 150 people seek overnight shelter at churches in the area. Six congregations and the Knights of Columbus participate in Simi Valley’s Public Action to Deliver Shelter program, which opened Tuesday and will run through the end of March. “Most other shelters (in neighboring communities) open in December, but the weather can be cold and wet in November,” said John Purvis, who has been the director of the PADS shelter program since 1995. “People think of this community as affluent, that there are no homeless people here in Simi Valley. But over the course of a typical season, we will have around 150 people registered to use the program,” he said. On any given night, about 20 people of all ages take refuge in the shelters. They come from a wide variety of circumstances. Sometimes there are families with small children, sometimes people in their 70s. “The program is church-based. I find it personally gratifying that all of the teams are coming back this year,” Purvis said. “It’s an indication they found it to be meaningful.” The overnight shelter program is held in conjunction with community dinners held at various churches, including an annual Thanksgiving dinner at St. Peter Claver Catholic Church, 2380 Stow St., for senior citizens, parishioners and homeless people in the area. The Samaritan Center, 280 Royal Ave., is open to the homeless from 7 to 11 a.m. weekdays, offering breakfast, showers, laundry facilities and a chance to socialize. Virginia Nelson became the center director a year ago and has been working to expand services to include counseling, social services and help in finding education and jobs. She said she already has seen increasing numbers of homeless people gathering at the Samaritan Center since the weather has turned colder. “Always in the wintertime, we have people coming from everywhere – it’s amazing. In the last two weeks, we’ve had more calls than you can imagine about when this shelter program will open,” she said. Nelson said the Thanksgiving events for the needy are rewarding for the volunteers and help make the community aware that some people in Simi Valley are homeless. Gina Acosta said she has been homeless and is glad the sleep sites are open when the weather turns cold and wet. “When it rains, it’s beautiful” to take refuge at a shelter, she said. “The sleep sites are wonderful, excellent,” agreed Oscar Aguilar, who said he also uses them occasionally. Mary Reid said she has been homeless off and on, sometimes sleeping in her car or camping, and she appreciates the chance to come to the indoor sleep sites, especially when it is raining. About 30 to 40 homeless men and women come to the Samaritan Center each day. Nelson said her eyes were first opened to the need more than 10 years ago when a friend invited her to help feed the homeless at Thanksgiving. Counseling is offered by graduate students from the Michael D. Eisner College of Education at California State University, Northridge. It’s administered by Jodi McIntosh, who said it has been successful in helping people deal with their problems, including several with drug or alcohol problems who got into rehabilitation programs. “I’m working hard at educating the homeless rather than just giving them a handout,” Nelson said. “We found out that two men working with the counselors were veterans who didn’t know they were eligible for pension benefits. One had served in the military for 18 years, but he could hardly handle talking about it. He actually cried. With the help of Lutheran Social Services and a representative of the Veterans Administration, we were able to help.” Some of the homeless people have been participating in painting workshops, and a new gardening program is planned to help beautify and maintain the center. One homeless man makes his own rings, which he shares with others there. “Art is a relaxing thing,” McIntosh said. “It taps into a deeper plane in a person.” The center has struggled this year after the loss of a $125,000 federal grant that ended last December. But new volunteers and donations have allowed it to remain open, and Nelson hopes more people will become aware of the programs and offer help.

It’s just a disgrace.”No-one from Donegal County Council was immediately available for comment last night.
