LAYTON, Utah A Utah toddler died from injuries that police say were caused by his mother’s boyfriend during a potty training incident.

Police were notified of the abuse when James Sieger, Jr., 2, was unresponsive and covered in bruises when he arrived at Davis County hospital on Saturday.

According to court documents, the boy was abused by his mother, Jasmine Bridgeman, 23, and her boyfriend, Joshua Schoenenberger, 34. Documents statethe abuse happened at Shoenenberger’s home.

“Certainly the Injuries looked like the result of abuse and the biological mother and her boyfriend were the ones who brought the child in and their stories were not matching up or making sense with what we were seeing,” said Layton police Lt. Travis Lyman.

Jasmine Bridgeman and Joshua Schoenenberger

Some of the abuse was a result of attempts to potty train the toddler, according to court documents. Lt. Lyman said the latest incident happened on Friday during a potty training incident.

According to jail documents,

the boy defecated in his diaper and the couple became furious, even taking the diaper off and smearing it in his face, according to KUTV.

Documents state Schoenenberger continued to beat the boy while Bridgeman went outside and smoked a cigarette.

“The biological mother did allow significant amount of abuse to go on without intervening, but also engaged in it herself,” said Lyman.

Police say the couple brought the boy to the Davis County hospital and reported he had almost drowned in the bathtub. The boy had internal bleeding, bruising to his legs, groin, arms and head.

“There are no words. There are no words what this baby went through and the pain he suffered,” said his Aunt Nicole Sieger.

His grandmother says she saw the boy at the store with his mom last month with a big bruise on his face.

“He had a bruise on his cheek a pretty big one,” said Krista Sieger.

Krista says she called Layton police to report it and the father says he called the Department of Child and Family Services, but nothing ever came of it.

“We could have stopped this whole thing,” said Krista.

“Very upset we have been trying for a long time to get those kids out of that situation,” said James.

Lyman says according to their records they did get a call from the grandmother on April 16,

but he says they tried to get back to her and make contact but were unable to do so. He says the issue was brought up to the Department of Child and Family Services but the mother’s whereabouts could not be found. No one knew where she was.

A spokesperson for the DCFS told KUTV that they are not able to talk about individual cases because of confidentiality reasons.

James Sieger says he was living with Bridgeman in Georgia four months ago and she suddenly just vanished with 2 year old boy and their 5 month old child. He did not know where she was at until his mother spotted them in the store in Utah.

October 05, 1992By New York Times News Service

Sitting outdoors in a football stadium during fall and winter games can be a chilly way to spend several hours. A blanket can help ward off the cold, of course. But now there is another way people can stay warm: They can climb into a bag.

Marvel Putnam, a retired circus tent maker, has designed a stadium bag that he said works better than a blanket for a person sitting in the stands. His invention, the Snug L Bun, is a nylon bag that slips over a person’s feet, legs and lower chest.

Although the pouch looks somewhat like a sleeping bag, it is designed to weigh less and to repel rain or spilled drinks. The bags weigh a pound or less; most sleeping bags weigh about three to five pounds.

“Sleeping bags are too big and bulky to take in and out of a stadium,” said Peter Hambly, the marketing director for Putnam’s company, Snug L Products, in Sacramento, Calif. “And if you stand up in a sleeping bag, it will ruin the bottom. The Snug L Bun has a heavy duty nylon bottom panel so you can stand up and cheer at a ball game.”

The bags, which are designed in one size to fit all, are 47 inches long. They include a drawstring at the waist for tightening around the lower chest or hips. The waist expands to 54 inches. The product, which has no lining, is designed to trap heat around the lower body and to act as a windbreaker. The fabric is treated to resist water and soiling.

The bag comes in three versions: Compact,
the north face massif jacket Beating chill at games is in the bag
which weighs six ounces and comes with its own carrying case sewn to the inside of the bag; Just in Case, which weighs eight ounces and tucks into a small separate waist pack, and Deluxe, which weighs a pound and is made of a heavier gauge nylon that is more durable than the other models.

The Deluxe, which comes with a carrying sack, has a zipper extending the length of the bag, making it easier to get in and out of. It has an interior pocket that holds a solid foam seat pad that is adjustable, so it can be centered for the best seating position.

The Snug L Buns are available in limited quantity at sporting goods stores. The suggested retail prices are $25.50 for the Compact, $32.50 for the Just in Case and $39.80 for the Deluxe. For information on dealers, call Mr. Hambly at (916) 423 3990.

Mr. Putnam, who is 80, said he created his first stadium bag in 1965 for himself and his wife, Laura, out of canvas that he used for making circus tents. The couple took the bags to watch the San Francisco Giants play baseball at Candlestick Park.

“I did it to please my wife and to save me from freezing,” Mr. Putnam said. “Always in the third or fourth inning, the sun would go down, and then we would climb into them.”

Three years ago, he decided to design a bag to sell to the public. He introduced it to the market in August. “Fabrics in the early days were crude,” he said. “They didn’t do the job as well.”

The victory returns the Rams (16 7) to the semifinals and a rematch with the squad that broke their hearts at this juncture last year: Governor Mifflin.

Meanwhile, hearts were heavy in the huddle as the Bears broke postgame for the last time this year.

“I didn’t expect us to come out and play like we did, but you never know in this game,” offered coach Gary Wylde, largely winning the battle of emotions that most of his players were not.

“(Central Dauphin) is a very good team, a top four team last year with basically every one back,” he continued. “I wish we would’ve given them a little bit better game.”

The Bears (18 5) drew first blood as Abby Fosnot led off, doubling to right and scoring on Caryn Bailey’s one out single up the middle.

But the Rams answered in their first bats with Karli Boyer (2 for 3, 3 runs) doubling to the fence in right and scoring on a two out single by Emilee Salinger.

There was a moment’s confusion/hesitation on the ball by second baseman Sarah Brill and first baseman Emily Wylde, just long enough to turn a routine out into an RBI.

Erin Whitman then plated Salinger with a double to the gap in left and the Rams increased their advantage the next inning as Boyer singled in Haley Shutt and winning pitcher Taylor Henry (3 for 4, 3 RBI) blooped a two run single in front of, and off the glove of an onrushing Rachel Bair in short right field.

Henry’s hit was essentially the knockout blow as she held the Bears scoreless the rest of the way.

Fosnot would finish with two of E town’s five hits and Bair had a pair, but the closest the Bears came to scoring again was pinch runner Casey Berra getting thrown out at home in the fourth inning.

Henry finished with one walk and 13 strikeouts mixing rise and drop with good side to side movement.

It didn’t help that the Bears seemed to be entranced with the cozy dimensions of the LVC facility 190 down the lines,
the north face arctic parka sale Bears knocked out
220 to dead center uppercutting five fly balls to centerfield (one that was dropped by Boyer) and one to left.

“Unfortunately,” rued Gary Wylde, “we had some swings that I’m not used to.”

Nor was he used to the outing experienced by his pitcher, Katie Dunkelberger.

Dunkelberger, whose pitching was one half of the title winning formula last year, surrendered nine hits and walked seven. She labored through 117 pitches while not recording a strikeout.

It’s not that she was getting squeezed. She was seldom close enough to get squeezed, uncorking four wild pitches and several more that would’ve been wild had there been baserunners.

Gary Wylde was sympathetic in his postmortem.

“First of all, the kid’s a competitor,” he declared, mindful of the yin and yang of scholastic sports.

“I just respect her so much. I’d go to war with her. Even though maybe it wasn’t her best stuff, she just battled today.”

Also in Class AAA:

Lower Dauphin 3, Solanco 0: The Falcons opened up a one run game with two runs in the top of the fourth inning and outlasted the Golden Mares in a quarterfinal at Millersville University.

Pitcher Megan Donlan went the distance for LD, scattering five hits and striking out nine Solanco batters.

WAILUKU It came in the final minute of an eventual scoreless tie, but it was huge for the slim state tournament hopes of the Baldwin High School girls soccer team.

Bears goalkeeper Malie Kuia stoned a wide open shot by King Kekaulike Lyti Akinaka, who had found a through pass in front of every player on the field with the exception of Kuia.

MIFFLINTOWN Huntingdon, down 3 2 after four innings, scored three runs in the top of the fifth and rode the arm of relief pitcher Alex Mykut the rest of the way to a 5 3 victory over Juniata in the District 6 Class 3A baseball semifinals Tuesday afternoon.

The Bearcats, now 12 7, take on Central in the finals Friday or Saturday at PNG Park.

games in a row we come from behind and had a rally. We had an impressive offensive performance, and we stepped it up defensively, Huntingdon coach George Zanic said. Briggs did a great job on the mound, and Alex (Mykut) was untouchable in relief. We don use him much because he our catcher. We try to pick our spots with him, and he did a great job today. It really exciting for the kids to play in the finals. They are looking forward to it. It an honor to play in that stadium. Indians, who came in winners of 10 straight, ended the season with a 17 5 record and a Tri Valley League championship.

have no regrets. It was a great season. We would love to still be going on, but that the way it goes. Someone has to lose, Juniata coach Nick Beward said. are very pleased with the way the kids played all year long. We graduated seven seniors from last year. These kids came out this season, played hard, and we got to hang a banner out of it. drew first blood with two runs in the third. Casey Conner singled up the middle and went to second on a two out base hit to left by Nick Zanic. Nick Holesa ripped a double over the head of center fielder Zac Piper, scoring both for the early advantage.

Juniata evened things up with a two spot in the bottom of the frame, thanks to three straight walks issued by Briggs. After Huntingdon used the hidden ball trick to tag Korey Martin out at third, Nick Snyder slapped a grounder to short, and Indian Jamie Bailer ran into Bearcat shortstop Holesa, knocking the ball into the outfield, in what looked like interference on the runner.

Instead, the umpires called no interference,

ruling Holesa had time to make the play and Bailer didn run out of the baseline, so Snyder got credit for a two run infield single, and George Zanic picked up a warning from the umpires. The Huntingdon defense turned in a double play on the next at bat, which proved to be a big defensive stop in the game.

lost my cool on that play, no question about that. I thought it was a questionable call that didn go our way, but our kids fought after that, and they had my back. I appreciate it, Zanic said. gave up three straight walks after we scored two runs in the third and that was frustrating, but it wasn devastating. We had the hidden ball trick and then the double play, and that got us out of a jam. It came in a crucial situation, and that seemed to swing the momentum our way. added a run in the fourth for a 3 2 lead when Spencer Page got hit by a pitch, went to second on a passed ball and plated on an RBI single by Donovan Ranck.

The lead was short lived as the Bearcats scored three runs in the fifth to snatch control and re take a lead they never relinquished. Back to back base hits by Conner and Briggs and a bunt single by Nick Zanic loaded the bases. Holesa walked to score courtesy runner Jairus Werner, Jared Showalter singled home Briggs, and Holesa scored on a Juniata throwing error to first.

fifth inning is where we unraveled. We lived and died by our defense all year, and tonight Huntingdon just got the better of us in the fifth inning, and we didn bounce back, Beward said.

Mykut relieved winning pitcher Briggs and turned in a dominant performance. The Bearcat junior tossed three scoreless innings to pick up the save. He faced ten batters, one above the minimum, struck out three and walked none. Mykut threw 34 pitches, 28 for strikes. Martin (6 4) suffered the loss for Juniata.

wanted to get us into the district title game. That what was on my mind when I came in. I was throwing hard, and they couldn touch it, so I just kept throwing fastballs,

Mykut said. exciting to get to the finals. Everything is coming together for us as a team. 030 0 5 7 0

the north face upland jacket Beanie Feldstein brings the best friend to center stage in ‘Lady Bird’

the north face pullover Beanie Feldstein brings the best friend to center stage in ‘Lady Bird’

Beanie Feldstein plays Julie Steffans in this year’s stirring, soaring success “Lady Bird.” Cast as the lead of the school musical rather than her overzealous best friend,the titular Lady Bird (Saoirse Ronan), Julie is portrayed with a quiet confidence by Feldstein. Next to Lady Bird’s antics, she often steals their shared scenes with a depth of character not typical of the archetypal role of “best friend.”

“When I read ‘chubby girl who loves theatre and is a loyal friend,’ I was like, ‘yep that’s me,'” Feldstein told The Daily Californian in an interview.

Like her “Lady Bird” character, Beanie also found her own voice in the theatre.

Beanie discovered her own love for acting and musical theatre from a young age at a Los Angeles children’s arts center. Her mother signed Beanie up for her very first part the 18th Von Trapp child in what might be one of the most inclusive stagings of “The Sound of Music.”

The now 24 year old actress has since made it all the way to the Broadway stage, singing alongside the likes of Bette Midler in the latest incarnation of “Hello, Dolly!” on the Great White Way. Though she debuted on Broadway before “Lady Bird” hit theaters, Beanie’s work on screen as Julie landed Beanie her part in “Hello Dolly!”

“I think of my life as sort of pre ‘Lady Bird’ and post ‘Lady Bird’ because it changed my life so much,” Beanie said.

Beanie says she was drawn to join the cast of “Lady Bird” in part because of the opportunity to work with Greta Gerwig on her first directing project. She shared her admiration for Gerwig’s previous screenwriting credits, such as “Frances Ha” and “Mistress America,” both of which also feature Gerwig as a central actor. This admiration for Gerwig’s unique vision led Beanie to sign on with the burgeoning auteur’s latest movie.

“This was Greta’s directorial debut, but you would never know it,” Beanie said. “It is so clear in knowing her how beautifully and uniquely she sees the world. She could not have been more giving.”

Like Beanie, “Lady Bird” also attracted several other up and coming Hollywood talents. Lucas Hedges, who starred in last year’s Oscar nominated drama “Manchester by the Sea,” plays Lady Bird’s first love. Timothe Chalamet, surrounded by rumors of a potential Oscar nomination for his part in this year’s “Call Me by Your Name,” follows as her second love interest.

“Lucas and Timothe are both in this film, on the rise, and [Gerwig] was able to get both of them,” Beanie said, considering those recent credits. “I think we will look back on this and think it’s really special that they were both in this film.”

This attention to supporting characters sets “Lady Bird” apart from other coming of age films. Smaller parts were written conscientiously by Gerwig in order to convey rich though little mentioned backstories within the brief time in which these actors grace the screen.

According to Beanie, what makes Julie in particular such a cathartic and relatable character for audiences is her deep loyalty to Lady Bird, and how Gerwig “gave Julie her own inner life outside of the film.”

Beanie reiterated the widespread praise for Gerwig’s careful writing, referencing one scene though there are numerous that gives a peek into Julie’s inner life. The moment comes when Julie lingers blissfully on a cast list featuring her name at the top seconds after Lady Bird, not receiving the part she desired, stomps away.

“[Gerwig] gives [Julie] her own quiet experience,” Beanie said. “[Gerwig] debunked the archetype of the best friend.”

The role of “best friend” typically functions as a setup to the main character’s storyline, resulting in something that resembles a persona, rather than a real person. In Gerwig’s vision, Julie not only responds to Lady Bird’s self destructive actions, she lives in her own storyline: messy, melancholic and leaving you wanting more. While Lady Bird’s behavior leads to hostility between the friends on screen, Beanie says her relationship with co star Saoirse Ronan was a friendship anything but hostile.

“We clicked instantly,” Beanie said. “We hung out and ate bagels at Greta Gerwig’s apartment we have the same sense of humor, we would quote ‘Bridesmaids’ to each other.”

Even more, in Ronan’s fictional mother Laurie Metcalf, Beanie found a role model. Metcalf, who shines as Lady Bird’s tough love matriarch, has had a long career straddling television, film and theater. While Beanie got her start on Broadway, she says she hopes to emulate Metcalf and expand her talents in new endeavors offstage.

“I have had the most joyous, special time discovering my love for the camera these past years,” Beanie said. “I feel incredibly lucky to be a part of bringing this film into the world.”.

In July 2005, Carol’s and Bob lives changed dramatically when their 15 year old daughter Sara died in a car accident. While coping with their loss, Carol and Bob searched for an opportunity to improve the lives of other children. a year after the accident, we felt we needed, in our lives, to make a difference, says Bob.The Leones had always spent time as a family in the outdoors and both of their daughters had been active in their high school outing club. Bob and Carol saw profound benefits to the girls well being from the experience. In 2006, Carol and Bob founded Teens to Trails, an organization dedicated to helping kids spend more time outside through high school outing clubs.They started by contacting area high schools and offering assistance in starting an outing club. assumed most students had the same type of access to outdoor clubs that my daughters had, says Carol. we could count on our hands the amount of schools that claimed to have one. Most schools didn have an outing club and some didn even know what one was. As they spoke to area schools, friends and neighbors, the idea started to catch on. With a growing network of outdoor oriented businesses, Registered Maine Guides, land managers and more, the support for their cause came to life. Thanks to Bob and Carol efforts over the past four years, over 40 schools have started an outing club.Teens to Trails also offers support to outing club advisors with weekend workshops. They plan Club Rendezvous which bring outing clubs from across Maine together for a weekend outdoors. The goal is to share ideas and foster a sense of community among Maine outing clubs. Bob and Carol also offer Scholarship in memory of their daughter. The award offers two area teens a full scholarship to attend a three week summer wilderness experience with the Chewonki Foundation.The success of Teens to Trails has encouraged the Leones to do even more. Carol and Bob believe that what they doing has the potential to spread even farther than Maine. love to link outing clubs all across the country together, says Carol. a dream off in the distance now but we going to stick around as long as we can to see it happen.Douglas Dear, Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, LaPlata, Md., is an advocate for the healing effects of fly fishing on wounded soldiers.While stopping by his local fly fishing shop in 2007, Douglas Dear heard about Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing (PHWFF), an organization helping disabled and wounded veterans and active duty soldiers rehabilitate both physically and emotionally through fly fishing. The organization was looking for a spot to host an event. Douglas got in touch with the PHWFF and offered his farm private trout stream for their next outing. grandfather was a West Point grad and served in World War II so I always had the utmost respect for the military, says Douglas.Founded in 2005 at Walter Reed Army Medical Center with the help of Trout Unlimited and Federation of Fly Fishers, PHWFF assists in the physical and emotional rehabilitation of military personnel through fly fishing and fly tying. The organization partners with federations across the country to offer local, ongoing support to area soldiers. program is inclusive rather than exclusive. Naturally, many of our participants were wounded or injured in war, but others were hurt while on active duty at base camps or at home, says Ed Nicholson, founder of PHWFF. Many participants also suffer from post traumatic shock, and the program is particularly effective in lessening their emotional turmoil.The program has reached over 2,000 soldiers since its start. At this year Fly Tie Event, PHWFF fifth annual fly fishing competition held at Dear farm, a PHWFF participant bravely spoke about losing his arm while on active duty. Everyone at the dinner was moved by the impact the program had on one soldier including Douglas. was a guy who was severely depressed. When he first started with us, he couldn tie a fly. Once he figured it out, he started challenging himself to try other things. Now he tells us there isn anything he can do with one hand.For Sylvie Fadrhonc, Telluride Adaptive Sports Program, Telluride, Col., a life changing injury turned an outdoor guide into an advocate for bringing the disabled outdoors.Months after beginning her outdoor career in Colorado as a guide and field instructor, Sylvie was in a car accident that left her paralyzed from the waist down. Not willing to give up her passion for the outdoors, she re learned how to ski, bike and rock climb using adaptive equipment. Her realization that she could still actively participate in the outdoors allowed her to pursue her dreams and led her to share this opportunity with others. She brought this enthusiasm to bear in Telluride, CO, where she works with the disabled community at the Telluride Adaptive Sports Program (TASP).The first thing you notice when looking at recent photos of Sylvie hiking, skiing and camping, is her big smile. Her positive attitude beams from every image. It obvious that she does not focus on obstacles. Even while still in the hospital, she looked for a way to ski that season. brother came to see me and told me not to worry, I still be able to ski, she says. the time I thought, great but I have to figure out how to sit up first. Less than four months later, Sylvie took her first adaptive ski lesson. doctors didn advise me to do it, but I was missing one of the best snow years in history so I had to get out there, she says.Less than a year after her accident, Sylvie contacted the Telluride Adaptive Sports Program (TASP), who welcomed her on staff as a volunteer coordinator. Over the course of her time with TASP, Sylvie has touched the lives of hundreds in the Telluride community and devoted herself to promoting the outdoors for the disabled.She helped initiate the first ever TASP Alaska Adventure for four adaptive athletes in conjunction with Mountain Trip Guides. Over the course of 10 days, Sylvie and her fellow participants went mountaineering, ski touring and salmon fishing across Alaska. This of a lifetime has become an annual event and each year the trip coordinators get requests to increase the challenges this year the athletes will summit Mount Dickey in the Great Gorge of the Ruth Glacier.Sylvie also helped create a program to spread disability awareness among fifth and sixth grade students in the community in order to help promote acceptance in area schools. of these kids come out and volunteer with disabled kids their own age once the program is finished. It powerful to see that happen, says Sylvie.There are many theories on how to lead a long, productive life, but Bates, 92, has found her formula: hiking and making the outdoors accessible to all. For the past 30 years, as a member of the Wonalancet Out Door Club, she and her fellow the Hill Hikers have been leading conservation efforts to protect hundreds of acres near New Hampshire White Mountains and construct miles of trails for public recreation. is nothing she rather do than be outdoors, says her daughter Connie Crooker.In 1981, and her husband had settled into retirement in Sandwich. Lib grew up hiking in the area, and her father Mac MacGregor was one of the first hut masters on the Appalachian Trail. When she overheard a group of local women talking about hiking, she naturally asked if she could join. Lib suggested to the group that they begin climbing 4,000 footers, working off an Appalachian Mountain Club list.To many, hiking 4,000 foot peaks may not be their idea of retirement, but Lib encouraged her new friends to think big and high. Her encouragement, leadership and talent for organizing groups became apparent. Since then, Lib and over 100 retirees in her area have gone climbing every Tuesday and refer to themselves as the the Hill Hikers, members of The Wonalancet Out Door Club. The members affectionately call Lib their den mother.Her idea of sharing the outdoors with others also led Lib to help conserve 2,000 acres of land along lakes, ponds and farms in her area. When the state gave the Sandwich money for conservation efforts in the late 1980s, Lib proposed the development of a hiking trail through town. Fred Lavigne, a member of the Wonalancet Out Door Club, recalls, would go out with a chain saw, a gift from her husband Charlie, and just cut her way through the woods, walking until she found great spots for the trail to pass through. It takes someone like Lib to keep projects like this going. It runs 18 miles long. still keep an eye on the trail today and make sure we maintain it, says Lib. Lib husband Charlie passed away in 1994 and Lib and her fellow hikers constructed a footbridge named Bridge in his memory. Last summer Charlie Bridge became unsafe for people to use. She hopes her next effort will be to rally her hiking cohorts and replace the 17 year old structure.Though Lib can no longer hike big ones, she continues to spend most of her time outdoors, especially perched on the hill in her backyard that her family calls Mount Lib. Even when she isn on hikes, Lib continues to meet up with her fellow hikers every week. group absolutely made my retirement, she says.Katie Zanto, Truckee, Calif., is an innovative educator who blends the outdoors with literacy training.Fueled by a great dedication to the environment and education, Zanto founded Adventure Risk Challenge (ARC), an innovative program that integrates wilderness challenges with literacy and leadership curriculum, and raises the aspirations of California high school students to think beyond graduation.

The Carlyle S. Beals. The Beals Prize was originally awarded to provide a grant for travel to a General Assembly of the International Astronomical Union (every three years). In 1988, however, it was first awarded in its present form: to a Canadian astronomer or an astronomer working in Canada, in recognition of outstanding achievement in research (either as a specific achievement or as a lifetime of research). The recipient shall be invited to address the Society at its Annual Meeting. To be considered for the award, nominees must be current CASCA members in good standing.

An award is now considered every second year, in even numbered years. No letter should exceed three pages in length. No other material should be submitted. Please submit nomination packages entirely in electronic form to the Chair of the Awards committee. The deadline for submissions for the 2016 award is Nov 20 2015.

Dr. in Astronomy from the University of Toronto in 1975. After holding positions at the University of British Columbia, the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory and the University of Calgary, Dr. Pritchet has been on faculty in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Victoria since 1982. He was Department Chair from 1995 1998, and the chair of the 2010 2020 Long Range Plan Committee for Canadian Astronomy. Dr. Pritchet is currently an associate fellow of the CIfAR Cosmology and Gravity program as well as the principal investigator of CANFAR, which coordinates astronomical computing resources across Canada.

Dr. Pritchet’s research in observational cosmology combines the best available technology with sophisticated analysis techniques. His discovery, along with Sidney van den Bergh, of RR Lyrae variable stars in the Andromeda galaxy is recognized as a vital contribution to fixing distance scales in the Local Group. He is a leader of the Supernova Legacy Survey that has provided precise measurements of dark matter and dark energy in the Universe, and he initiated the close galaxy pair study in the Canadian Network for Observational Cosmology redshift survey. He has also produced important results on galaxy mass profiles, globular cluster distributions, and stellar populations of galaxies in the local universe. Dr. Pritchet has mentored over three dozen graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, and has also made important contributions to astronomy education and outreach as a Galileo lecturer of the International Year of Astronomy and the initiator and primary organizer of Vict
