When asked how she goes about capturing the photographs that bring such emotion to the viewer, She stated, My goal is to recognize and understand the feelings and emotions that a particular image will elicit in other people as well as myself. If I get the view just right, then all of us will probably be pleased by that certain look on a puppys face, the colorful symmetry in a bit of forest, or even the unexpected hues seen in an old building.

MINDEN, LA (PRWEB) January 08, 2013
Where will you be on the weekend before Super Bowl? The action, New Orleans Appraiser David J. Goldberg announced recently, will be in Minden, a small town with a rich history in the northern part of Louisiana, where the contents of an historic home are being set out for sale on January 25.
The folks in Minden still talk about the more than 15,000 Confederate soldiers quartered at nearby Camp Magruder. They know the Red River as it today and know its history as a naval battleground between Yankees and Rebels. The January 25, 26, 27th Minden Estate Sale will give them something new to talk about. (http://estatesalelouisiana.wordpress.com)
One thing is the painting of a Civil War naval battle that was found in the attic of the house and is highly regarded as a visual documentary. Housed in a gilt frame, the large oil-on-canvas depicts canon fire erupting around two war ships while lifeboats of sailors flee a sinking ship. Although the artist is unidentified, the scene is thought to be of the Red River Campaign.
In talking about the upcoming Estate Sale, director David J. Goldberg said, “This sale provides an insider’s look at the lives a Southern family lived over many generations.” Highlights of the Estate Sale feature items from nearly all periods of style. (http://www.appraisalgroupusa.com)
For instance, two Colonial era portraits, ancestors of the historic home’s current owners, were most likely painted by a North Carolina artist before the family migrated to Louisiana. The woman is classic Americana, wearing a white cap and holding a prayer book. The gentleman, with a full head of blond hair, is clearly prosperous. Both portraits are in good condition and housed in elaborate gilt frames.
The 1870′s Gothic Revival bedstead, attributed to New York makers Pottier & Stymus has a high headboard and elaborate cartouche is surmounting an arched pediment. The foot board, lower of course, duplicates the motif.
Tiffany silver and Gorham sterling flatware, as well as a 35-piece set in original boxes, attests to grand occasions Always in style, interest is expected to be high.
Modern art by John Hulse, whose monochromatic water colors have sold at regional auction for as low as $ 500 and at Sotheby’s for as much as $ 10,000, will also be in the sale. The watercolor is of an elaborate gate opening onto field dotted with cactus.
Among the 20th-C. modern collectibles is Coca Cola memorabilia, including a vintage cooler.
Other highlights include a Hanson tubular grandfather clock with arched pediment, polychrome rolling moon face, and a brass and silver dial. There are three chiming tubes, all behind a glass door embellished with decorative wood.
Two exceptional French mantle clocks of white marble, circa 1850, are also destined for the sale, as is a black marble French mantle clock, and an 1876 Seth Thomas calendar clock.
There is also a wonderful Georgian style mahogany secretaire bookcase and an American Empire period armoire, circa 1835. An oak roll top desk with 28 fitted interior drawers and 8 pedestal drawers is an exceptionally unusual find.
Lighting includes an important bronze 18-arm chandelier, crystal candlesticks, a brass oil lamp and a wrought iron floor lamp, as well as crystal sconces and a pair of submarine lights.
A collection of North Carolina pottery, Japanese Imari, antique Chinese porcelains, an alabaster bust on a stand are are also listed among the more than 400 items to be sold in the 3-day estate sale .
According to Mr. Goldberg, the Minden, LA Estate Sale will be held on-site. There will be no Internet buying.
He promises that all is set to sell at fair market price. This is not a shop, but an estate sale; we want the walls and rooms bear when we leave Sunday,” he emphasizes.

Jostens Announces: Elmhurst College Running Back Named 2012 NCAA Division III Gagliardi Trophy Recipient
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) December 16, 2012
Elmhurst College (Illinois) senior running back Scottie Williams was named recipient of the 2012 Gagliardi Trophy Dec.12 in Salem, Va., as the most outstanding football player in NCAA Division III this fall. Sponsored by Jostens and the J-Club of Saint John’s University of Minnesota, the Gagliardi Trophy recognizes excellence in athletics, academics and community service.
Three other finalists were on hand at the 20th annual Gagliardi Trophy award ceremony: Zach Autenrieb, record-setting senior defensive back from Thomas More College (Kentucky), Luke Heinsohn, high-scoring senior running back/kicker from Washington and Lee (Virginia) and Nathan Wara, senior quarterback from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh.
Williams, a 5 foot-6 inch, 170-pound marketing major from Woodridge, Ill., was Offensive Player of the Year in the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin and helped his team advance to the second round of the D-III national tournament. He finished the regular season second in D-III in rushing with 173.2 yards per game, and seventh in scoring with an average of 13.4 points per game. The 2011 first-team Academic All-American has been active with the national Interfaith and Community Service Campus Challenge; Habitat for Humanity; the local Character Counts initiative; the Relay for Life fundraiser for the American Cancer Society; and a church bible school.
In nominating Williams, Elmhurst College president S. Alan Ray wrote: “In addition to being one of the best running backs in all of NCAA Division III, he is a dedicated student and a committed, inspiring community volunteerThis young man exemplifies the finest qualities of a Division III student-athlete.”
Background on the three other 2012 Gagliardi Trophy finalists includes statistics through the end of the regular season, academic major and community service:
Zach Autenrieb, Thomas More College (Kentucky) senior DB accounting major: National D-III leader with eight interceptions in 2012 (two returned for TDs); holds the D-III career record with 32 INTs. Honor roll student. Volunteer engagement includes Special Olympics and Relay for Life.
Luke Heinsohn, Washington and Lee University (Virginia) senior RB/PK business administration major: National scoring leader during the regular season (all divisions) with 180 points (21 TDs); kicked FG in 4-overtime win. Team advanced to the D-III national tournament. Off-field engagement includes American Cancer Society, Bike MS and directing a fellowship music program.

Record-setting senior wide receiver Michael Zweifel from the University of Dubuque was the 2011 Gagliardi Trophy winner.
Trophy candidates are nominated by their college president. A national committee composed of 38 former small college football players, business leaders, academicians and sports writers from around the country selected the final four candidates.
Launched in 1993, the award is named after John Gagliardi, Saint John’s legendary Hall of Fame head football coach who retired Nov.19 with 489 career victories, the most in college football history.
The trophy design features a sculpture of Gagliardi and a player representing the teacher-coach and the student-athlete in a classic one-on-one sideline consultation. Hand-cast in bronze on a polished wood base, the trophy stands nearly two-feet tall and weighs 64 pounds. The words “Division III Player of the Year” and “Honoring Excellence in Football, Academics and Community Service” are etched in glass on two panels flanking the figures.
About John Gagliardi
After 489 career victories in his 64 seasons as a head coach at the collegiate level, John Gagliardi announced his retirement Nov. 19.
“Seventy years [60 at SJU] is a long time to be doing the same job,” Gagliardi said. “Luckily, I’ve always been blessed with great players, friends, family and support to make it this far.”
Gagliardi will remain on staff until his current contract expires June 30, 2013. St. Johns hopes to name a successor later this month.
“Arguably, John Gagliardi has impacted the lives of as many young men as any individual in the history of Saint John’s University,” SJU President Dr. Michael Hemesath said. “His legacy of educating young men at Saint John’s is one that any coach or professor would envy.”
“The kind of loyalty and commitment John showed to Saint John’s and his student-athletes is rare and exemplary. It is an example of how John modeled good character and ethical behavior for his student-athletes and the community for 60 years.”
