Entry Title Date
Cyprus August 5, 2014
Carl Levin, D-MI
"It is unfortunate that, four decades after the island’s division, we have yet to achieve that goal. It is long overdue that Cyprus be unified. And there are reasons today to believe that goal is closer. In February, U.N.-sponsored talks between Greek and Turkish leaders restarted after a 2-year halt. They agreed to a roadmap for further negotiations and, importantly, committed to build a positive atmosphere surrounding the talks, including important confidence-building measures designed to help ease 40 years of mistrust. Little over a week ago negotiators met and committed to progress on outstanding issues in advance of their next meeting on September 2."
Recognizing The Paxton Lady Cats As Class 1A Basketball State Champions And Honoring The Life And Dedicated Service Of Coach Randy Infinger August 1, 2014
Jeff Miller, R-FL
"The Paxton Lady Cats ended a spectacular season with a record of 26-3 to clinch this year’s state championship. The final game was played against Chipley High School on February 20, 2014, in Lakeland, Florida, with the Lady Cats claiming victory with a score of 39-34. Many of the exceptional plays leading up to the victory occurred in the final quarter of this tightly contested championship game. Senior Emily Murray scored a game-high 20 points on the strength of four 3-pointers, including a game-winning 3 pointer with just 38 seconds left on the clock. With their victory, the Lady Cats secured Paxton’s fifth girls basketball state championship, moving them into fifth place on the all-time Florida girls basketball championship list. Their latest state championship marks another proud moment in the sports history of Northwest Florida high school basketball."
Tribute To Nancy Olkewicz July 29, 2014
Harry Reid, D-NV
"Mr. President, I rise today to pay tribute to a Senate staffer who is retiring after 36 years of service. Nancy Pittore Olkewicz began her Senate career in February 1978 working for Senator Paul Sarbanes of Maryland, who was her home State Senator. She remained on his staff for 23 years, which included the birth of her three children. She values her time with Senator Sarbanes and is especially grateful for the opportunity to work part-time while her three children, Jenny, Brian and Eric, were small."
40Th Anniversary Of A Divided Cyprus July 29, 2014
Edward Whitfield, R-KY
"This past February represented a significant shift in the deadlock when both Cypriot leaders resumed long stalled negotiations and issued a joint statement outlining principles the two sides will use to work toward a reunification of Cyprus. Both sides have met regularly since this announcement and real progress is being made. That said, many controversial issues remain and the path forward will be a difficult one. This makes it even more important that the United States Congress, the Administration, the United Nations, Turkey, Greece, and other stakeholders remain engaged and continue to encourage expeditious, good faith negotiations on both sides."
Additional Statements July 29, 2014
Kelly Ayotte, R-NH
"What began in February 2004 as a family project started by Paul Moore and Carole Moore Biggio to support their brother—New Hampshire Army National Guard SSG Brian Moore, who was deployed to Iraq—has developed into a major volunteer effort. Over the past decade, MooreMart has sent more than 63,000 care packages to our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Their effort came to be known as “MooreMart,” because the soldiers receiving the packages remarked that the boxes “carry more supplies than WalMart.” It’s a clever nickname that is now well known in the Granite State"
