Grammy week seems to bring all sorts of surprises and storylines to the forefront of music news media. While some are not always pleasant—like Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer suing his band—others are exactly what we need.One such surprise is Iggy Pop and Cage The Elephant collaborating on “Broken Boy”, the lead track off CTE’s latest—and Grammy-nominated—album, Social Cues. The “Godfather of Punk,” who is a 2020 Grammy “Lifetime Achievement” recipient, added vocals to an otherwise unchanged “Broken Boy”.“Cage is a super high energy outfit, living the rock dream, so for a couple of fun minutes I was one of the boys,” Pop said in a statement. “Sounds pretty wicked to me.”Cage The Elephant singer Matt Shultz had many kind words to say about Pop in a statement of his own:He’s such a pioneer in so many fields: lyrically, culturally, poetically, visually, musically, and stylistically. Only a couple times in your life do you have the opportunity to share a moment with a visionary and beautiful human as he is. I’m grateful and blown away to have experienced and witnessed, not just his creativity, but also his kindness, humility, and humanness first hand. Such a testimony to the power of love.

LEXINGTON, Ky. – As Boston University played No. 1 Kentucky close deep into the second half of an 82-62 loss, it should have come as no surprise that Trinity High School alum Nathan Dieudonne played a key role in Rupp Arena.Nov 24, 2015; Lexington, KY, USA; Boston University Terriers forward Nathan Dieudonne (22) shoots the ball as Kentucky Wildcats forward Skal Labissiere (1) defends in the first half at Rupp Arena.The 2012 Mr. Kentucky Basketball did a little of everything for the Terriers, totaling 11 points, four rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 37 minutes.“I love Nathan Dieduonne,” Boston head coach Joe Jones said. “I just love his toughness. He’s just a winner. He just wants to win. He couldn’t care less about his personal stats. He puts winning ahead of everything.”Dieudonne totaled 10 points, five rebounds and four assists in Boston’s 2014 loss to Kentucky at Rupp Arena. As a senior at Trinity High School in 2012, he averaged 17.5 points and 8.3 rebounds per game in the Boys’ Sweet Sixteen at the facility to lead the Shamrocks to a state title. In the championship game, he recorded a double-double with 12 points and 12 rebounds.The 6-foot-7, 235-pound senior averaged 11.5 points and 6.3 rebounds per game for Boston last season. Through five games this fall, he is averaging 11.4 points and 5.8 rebounds per game.Dieudonne may not have any more games at Rupp Arena in his future, but Jones is not eager to lose his veteran presence in any game.“He’s the heart and soul of our team,” Jones said. “He just brings a level of toughness and competitiveness to the table. And we’re lucking to have him. He’s been terrific, someone that I’m going to really miss next season.”Email Jon Hale at [email protected] . Follow him on Twitter @JonHale_CJ .
The Bishops’ High defeated Cummings Lodge 2-0 yesterday in the GuyOil/Tradewind Tankers Secondary School Football League at the Ministry of Education ground. Natayah Smith and Malachi Richards scored for the Carmichael Street unit in the 30th and 53rd minute to clinch the vital three points in the 60 minute affair.The Bishops’ High was handed the perfect opportunity to break the deadlock after being awarded a penalty kick following an infraction inside the area on the stroke of halftime.Tasked with the responsibility from the distance was goalkeeper Smith, who placed his effort past his opposing number to give his side the deserved lead. However Smith would turn from hero to villain in the space of seven minutes as he was issued a red card for a clumsy challenge inside the box.The resulting error gifted the East Coast of Demerara unit a penalty kick. However the resulting spot-kick was denied by the substitute custodian as Bishops High maintained their slim lead.The contest was then sealed seven minutes before the end as Richards scored. It was a brilliantly worked goal, as a passing combination was finished off into the far corner by Richards from inside the 18 yard box. The tournament continues today at the same venue with another doubleheader. Complete ResultsGame-1 Cummings Lodge-0 vs the Bishops High-2Natayah Smith-30thMalachi Richards-53rd
“It was embarrassing when people tried to explain things to me at work and at stores and I didn’t understand,” he said. “I tried to learn by reading the newspaper and books, and watching TV. “Now, it’s a little door I opened. I see everything perfect.” Recognized at Wednesday’s graduation were seven high school graduates, 44 Adult Basic Education graduates, 50 GED Certificate recipients, and seven U.S. citizenship recipients. Phyllis Aeiko, a longtime El Rancho Adult School teacher, said she prefers working there than at traditional high schools. “In adult education, there are no discipline problems. Everybody appreciates what we do,” said Aeiko. “They come because they want to, not because they’re forced.” Less than half of the school’s 2006 graduating students attended the ceremony Wednesday because they couldn’t leave their work and family duties, said Aeiko. After Alfaro received his medal and shook the hands of El Rancho Adult School board members and Board of Education officials, he sat down. His 6-year-old daughter ran to him and tugged at his robe. He put the ribbon around her neck, and she showed it off to other children at the ceremony. “I’m the first generation of my family here from Mexico,” he said later. “I got my GED, so my son might be able to go to college and be a lawyer or something important to my family.” [email protected] (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3026160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Just three years ago, Alfaro, 31, couldn’t speak English. When he signed up for ESL and basic education classes at the school, he still had to wake up before dawn for work. After work, he went to school for class and to study. Now, along with other 2006 El Rancho Adult School graduates, he was being recognized for passing Adult Basic Education and English as a Second Language classes. Some graduates Wednesday received their high school diplomas, and others received GEDs. He still trips over past tense phrases and some words in English, but learning the language has changed his opinion of himself and his future, said Alfaro. PICO RIVERA – Jesus Alfaro took a deep breath. He knew the moment he had looked forward to for nearly three years would come in just seconds. Then, he heard his name spoken slowly, each syllable carefully pronounced in the microphone so everyone in the crowd understood: Jesus Alfaro. Standing near El Rancho Adult School graduates, Alfaro’s wife, daughter and son hollered and watched him walk to the podium to accept a gold-colored medal hanging from a red, white and blue ribbon.
