Eight days before two Syracuse football players were stabbed at an outdoor barbecue on campus, Naesean Howard learned his football career was essentially over.

He met with Syracuse football director of player development Roy Wittke on April 8 and was informed he would not be allowed to try out for a preferred walk on spot. Howard said Wittke told him the decision was based on a report given to the new staff by former head coach Scott Shafer.

Howard said Shafer forced him to leave Syracuse two years ago after an issue with a tutor, the last in a string of off field issues with Howard dating back to a recruiting weekend in January 2014 in which Howard got drunk.

He transferred to Wagner last year but lasted three months before leaving the team and returning to Syracuse. He re enrolled at Syracuse University this academic year and worked two jobs to help pay for schooling, all for the sole purpose of being given a third chance to play football.

A week after that opportunity disintegrated, he walked into the outdoor party with a pocket knife and, police say, an intention to harm two former teammates.

As snow fell outside, Howard spoke for the first time about the circumstances surrounding his departure from Syracuse two years ago, his brief time at Wagner and his desire to return to the Syracuse football program.

His thoughts that Friday afternoon in early April offer a glimpse into his state of mind a week before witnesses said he ambushed Chauncey Scissum and Corey Winfield at a barbecue and repeatedly stabbed them.

Perhaps the most vexing question in this whole ordeal: Why those two?

Howard blamed Scissum and Winfield for an incident during a recruiting weekend in January 2014 that he believed poisoned his relationship with the coaching staff.

Howard said Scissum was his host for the weekend. Hosts are responsible for making recruits comfortable on their visits and ensuring they have a good time. It might mean introducing them to girls, taking them to parties on campus or just hanging out and answering questions about the school and football program.

Howard said he was at a party on South campus with Scissum and other recruits and players when Scissum poured Exclusiv vodka into his cup after Howard told him he had enough.

According to another person at the party, the person did not see Scissum pour alcohol into Howard’s cup. The source wished to remain anonymous because it did not want to get involved in a criminal matter.

Howard said he drank so much he blacked out. He said he was taken to a party at Schine Student Center and remembered Scissum and Winfield were with him when he left there.

Howard believed the two players recorded him on video being carried outside and acting drunk, but it’s unclear if the video ever existed or was deleted before coaches could view it.

“I’m thinking they were jealous of me the whole time,” Howard said of Scissum and Winfield. “They sent it to my phone. I don’t have it anymore. I was pissed off, so I deleted it.

“Maybe they’re jealous of me because I’m coming in with more speed than them. Maybe Chauncey knew I was better than him as a player, so he had to try something to hold me back.”

The next morning, Howard said Shafer and assistant coaches Chuck Bullough and Fred Reed spoke with him about the previous night.

Howard believed the incident was used against him when he arrived on campus later that summer and limited his opportunities on the practice field.

In a separate incident, Shafer suspended Howard for the week of practice at Fort Drum for being late to a team meeting.

Shafer called Howard into his office after the incident.

“My own department didn’t want you here,” Howard recalled an angry Shafer telling him as he slapped a cup of red juice all over his office curtains. “I brought you in here. I gave you a chance.”

Said Howard, the first player who verbally committed to Shafer in his first full recruiting class: “He put me on thin ice after Fort Drum.”

Howard worked on the scout team when he returned until he found himself at odds with Shafer again the week of the Notre Dame game in late September 2014, when Howard was accused of missing a tutoring session.

He said Shafer met with him the previous week and asked him if he wanted to transfer. Now, after the tutoring incident, Howard said Shafer informed him he couldn’t go to the Notre Dame game and would have to sit out practice the following week.

Howard said he met with his parents, Shafer, and a small group of football and athletic department staff members about being released from his scholarship.

“The final meeting I told everyone in the room, ‘I don’t want to leave. This is my favorite school,’ ” Howard said.

A mass for Kennedy, 38, and his wife, 33, will be said Friday at St. Thomas More Roman Catholic Church in New York City, the place where his mother, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, attended church.

A private memorial service for Lauren Bessette, 34, will be held Saturday in Greenwich, Conn., her hometown.

President Clinton, who will attend the Kennedy service with First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton, on Wednesday defended the resources that were committed to the rescue and recovery efforts after Kennedy’s plane crashed Friday night on a flight from New Jersey to Martha’s Vineyard.

“If anyone believes that was wrong, the Coast Guard is not at fault, I am,” Clinton said. “It was because I thought it was the right thing to do under the circumstances.”

The Kennedy family was notified of the discovery of the wreckage early Wednesday morning. The Coast Guard flew Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D Mass.) and his two sons, Rep. Kennedy Jr., 37, to Martha’s Vineyard to identify the bodies.

The bodies were then taken to medical examiners at Woods Hole, a port on Cape Cod. Wednesday the remains were being prepared for return to their families. Tuesday by a camera equipped remote operating vehicle, known as an ROV. Wednesday, the Coast Guard sent down two ROVs to scan the crash site. the first divers identified the three victims. National Transportation Safety Board officials said the wreckage containing the three victims’ remains were found less than half a mile from the estimated impact site.

The discovery occurred after the research vessel, named Rude, painted a three dimensional map of the ocean bottom, creating high resolution images. The recovery was aided by radar data calculations, performed by the safety board, that determined the aircraft’s “splash point.”

Divers found all three bodies in or near the fuselage in waters 116 feet deep and seven miles off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard, near the town of Aquinnah. The plane’s wreckage was strewn over a 100 square yard area of the ocean floor.

The divers saw “twisted wreckage, wires, seats, the kind of things you could imagine that would be the result of an high impact at water,” said Coast Guard Rear Adm. Richard Larrabee.

He added that an 8 to 10 foot portion of the fuselage had been recovered, which had the plane’s serial number, N9253N. The plane’s wings and engine had been separated from the fuselage, suggesting a violent impact. Officials from the safety board and the Federal Aviation Administration have said the plane was descending at a rate of more than 5,000 feet a minute at the time of the crash.

A “water ram” effect equivalent to the force of 2 pounds of TNT exploding was likely unleashed when Kennedy’s plane hit the water’s surface, according to Dale Ridder, a marine forensic expert. Ridder, a member of the Marine Forensic Panel, based his assessment on FAA radar data showing the plane’s rate of descent, estimated speed, angle of entry and the weight of the aircraft.

“On impact, two jets of water will enter the engine compartment through the cooling air scoops in the nose, and the engine will be driven back into the baggage compartment,” said Ridder, a retired Army officer who specialized in marine explosions.

He concluded that Kennedy, his wife and her sister most likely died instantly. Medical examiners performed autopsies on the victims Wednesday night to determine the official cause of death.

In a second dive Wednesday afternoon, divers removed the bodies from the water. The recovery divers were equipped with tools to cut away pieces of the aircraft to extract the bodies from the wreckage, a Coast Guard spokesman said.

The memorial services and funeral arrangements apparently were being made by Sen. Kennedy, the family patriarch since the death of his brothers, President John F. Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy more than three decades ago.

In a perfect world, all manufacturing processes would have no appreciable impact on the environment. We all want this, but it is unrealistic to expect no impact. As with other industries, the Pulp and Paper sector has worked to improve its environmental footprint.

At Northern Pulp, the impact of effluent (wastewater) has been reduced by significant ongoing improvements dating back to the 1990s. Since taking over the Abercrombie mill in 2011, Northern Pulp has been making efforts to be as eco conscious as present technology allows. The disconnect for the public, however, seems to be the perception that simply creating a closed loop (zero effluent) system in the proposed new effluent treatment facility will solve all environmental issues, and that Northern Pulp is not willing to create such a system because of its hefty price tag. The reality is bleached Kraft mills (which is what Northern Pulp is) cannot be zero effluent. It is not a question of money, rather a result of current technology limitations.

There is a substantial difference between bleached and unbleached Kraft processes. Northern Pulp is a bleached Elemental Chlorine Free (ECF) Kraft system, one that produces effluent streams that cannot be recycled in the process. The majority of effluent produced by the process comes from the bleach plant, which is why an open system is required.

Some unbleached Kraft mills can operate in a zero effluent configuration. An example is the Visy Tumut Kraft mill, New South Wales, Australia. This mill operates a closed loop system where all of the wastewater is land applied through irrigation for agriculture. In Canada, unbleached Kraft production represents less than 10 per cent of bleached Kraft production.

the mid 70s, the Great Lakes Paper Company in Thunder Bay, Ontario, attempted to install a closed loop system in its bleached Kraft pulp mill, Guy Martin, KSH Solutions explains. a number of issues, the process was abandoned.

Other bleached Kraft mills around the world have attempted, and failed, to implement closed loop systems since then. The difficulty stems from the buildup of chlorides and minerals in the pulping process. Chlorides originating from the bleaching process cause equipment corrosion, just as the same chlorides naturally occurring in seawater corrode metals. Calcium salts and other minerals are naturally present in both wood and water and lead to significant equipment scaling issues, as homeowners with hard water can attest.

are a few mills, such as Paper Excellence Meadow Lake Pulp Mill in Saskatchewan, that operate a Bleached Chemi Thermo Mechanical Pulp (BCTMP) mill with a closed loop effluent system. BCTMP is an entirely different pulping process, which provides a completely different product than that of a Kraft pulp mill, explains Martin.

BCTMP employs heat, mechanical action and a pre treatment with chemicals to separate cellulose fibers rather than chemically dissolving the lignin holding fibers in the wood matrix, such as Northern Pulp Kraft process. Because lignin is still present in mechanical pulp, it produces a weaker, lower grade of paper that yellows over time. Mechanical pulp bleaching is accomplished with hydrogen peroxide and/or sodium hydrosulfite. Two mechanical pulp processes were permanently closed in Nova Scotia in part due to the decline in newsprint markets (Bowater Liverpool and Port Hawkesbury PM1).

The addition of Oxygen Delignification to reduce bleaching chemicals by 30 to 40 per cent will have a very positive impact. The Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment (CCME) guidelines stipulate that all effluent parameters should meet background concentrations of the receiving water in less than 100 metres from the outfall. As effluent has been flowing into the Northumberland Strait for 50 years without diffusion, the new treatment facility and diffused outfall will reduce impact on the Strait, according to Martin.

proposed new treatment system for Northern Pulp will be a modern Activated Sludge (AST) system that mills, industries and municipal facilities throughout the world have in place to treat wastewater, Martin says. This system will replace the current Aerated Stabilization Basin (ASB) technology.
