Dear Editor,As an Everett, I was irate to learn that my family’s name was used in an attempt to smear a political candidate. The Everetts were long time residents of Wilmington. My mother ran a successful dancing school and donated proceeds to help build the Health Center. My father volunteered for years in Little League, Pony League and Pop Warner. He helped to build the Little League field by the Police Station and a skating rink behind the South School. I grew up in Wilmington and taught for 30+ years as Miss Everett, Mrs. Mosca, or Mrs. Farrar.The name Jack Everett comes from the Urban Dictionary. As copied from the Urban Dictionary:“Jack Everett – a strong leader that sticks up for other people and he will always put others first. lovely eyes and hair. good at sports, he isn’t arrogant, girls drop even when he is standing. he will fight to protect his friends and family”Perhaps, the person who hid behind a cartoon character and our name sees this as themselves. However, I question their integrity. Our family will fight to protect our friends and family, which is why I am writing this. We do not want to be attached to negative campaigns.For 63 of my years, I have lived and/or worked in Wilmington. I am invested in Wilmington. I am angry that our family name has been used in this way and to have been called on this by another hurts all the more.I hope that the people of Wilmington will vote on Election Day and will vote wisely.Sincerely,Sheryl Everett FarrarLike Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

PixabayAll holy books including the Bible, Quran and Bhagavat Gita state that life after death is a reality, and humans begin their eternal journey only after taking their last breath. Even though medical science has not found solid proof of that substantiates the view narrated in these holy books, many people who faced near-death experience (NDE) claims that afterlife is a reality, and people will live in the form of souls after their death.Now, a woman named Serena has shared her near-death experience testimonial on NDERF (Near Death Experience Research Foundation) website and it has emerged as the hottest debating point among spiritualists and medical experts. In the testimonial, Serena has shared her NDE experience while she was just two years old.Sharing her NDE, Serena revealed that she saw her grandfather during the time of her death. The NDE victim also claimed to have seen a bright light that does not hurt eyes during those moments.”This light was extremely beautiful and heavenly. The light was extremely bright and yellow, but yet dim. I can describe it best if you can imagine an extremely bright light that does not hurt your eyes. This light was surrounding everything. It felt as if my visual area was very restricted. I could not see the start and the end of the light, I could only see right in front of me. In the centre of the light, there was my grandfather,” wrote Serena in the NDE testimonial.Serena also added that her grandfather was very happy to see her, and he apparently smiled at her.”My grandfather looked so happy. He was smiling very brightly, looking at me with tender and loving eyes, like somebody who truly loves me. I think the smile was open, in the sense that he was showing his teeth, so, it was a huge smile,” added Serena.Serena also made it clear that the entire near-death experience was quite pleasant, and she lost awareness of her body.Even though spiritualists consider the experience of Serena an irrefutable proof of an afterlife, experts have brushed aside the view, and they claim that it is a property of the human brain that is resulting in these visual hallucinations. As per medical experts, during the time of life-threatening events, oxygen supply to the brain will be reduced, and at this time, the human brain embraces a survival technique which is the root of all these visual hallucinations.
Sunrisers Hyderabad, placed 4, will take on Mumbai Indians, placed 3, on the points table. A win for either team could well seal their spot in the playoffs, but both sides will aim for a top two finish which makes the battle an interesting affair. Delhi Capitals lost their game on Wednesday which gives Mumbai Indians a great chance to aim for the number 2 spot, and SRH, minus David Warner, will be a slightly weakened side.Predicted XI of both sides: Rohit SharmaIANSMumbai Indians: Rohit Sharma(c), Quinton de Kock(w), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Krunal Pandya, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Rahul Chahar, Beuran Hendricks, Jasprit Bumrah, Lasith MalingaSunrisers Hyderabad: Martin Guptill, Wriddhiman Saha(w), Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson(c), Vijay Shankar, Mohammad Nabi, Abhishek Sharma, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, K Khaleel Ahmed, Sandeep SharmaFantasy tips and suggestions: Kane WilliamsonIANSWicket-keeper: Quinton de Kock has been superb for Mumbai Indians at the top of the order and should once again hold the key in the powerplay overs against the SRH pace bowlers. Kane Williamson could use spinners against him and this could be his biggest threat.Batsmen: Rohit Sharma has found his groove in the last couple of matches and in this crunch match, the skipper has to play a decisive knock for this side. Also, Ishan Kishan, who might play in this match, will hold the key against the SRH spinners.For the Sunrisers, Manish Pandey has to step up and continue with his good form for his side, more so in the absence of David Warner. Also, Martin Guptill, who might replace Warner, can be picked and can be the differentiating factor in the playing XI.All-rounders: Hardik Pandya has been in blistering form for Mumbai and should once again be the key man for the hosts, more so in the death overs. Also, he has to take up more responsibility with the ball.For SRH, Mohammad Nabi can be a good pick, as he more often than not picks up wickets in the powerplay overs. Also, he can be used as a pinch-hitter in the batting order.Spinners: Imran Tahir is a definite yes. Also, young Rahul Chahar has been a revelation for Mumbai this season and should get the nod to feature in the playing XI.Seamers: Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah – two bowlers who love bowling with each other will have to be the wicket-takers for their respective sides if they have to clinch the match and make it to the playoffs.
