New Haven Register: New Haven basketball star shot dead

NEW HAVEN — A former Hillhouse High School basketball star who later played in college was shot to death early today.

Donnell Allick, 31, was shot as many as five times at about 1:45 a.m. at an apartment at 201 Diamond St. in the city's Beaver Hills neighborhood and later died at Yale-New Haven Hospital.

Two quotes jumped out from the New Haven story:

1. “Unfortunately he made a bad decision as a young man and he to spend some time in jail. But he came home and he was attempting to get his life back on track,” Carolina said.

Shouting yes…with a pumped fist is how I felt on the morning of Father’s Day when watching the weather report. My relationship with had always been similar to a golfers tool or resource. Now, its expanded to a partnership, often times dreading its advise and loathing the predictions. I’ve also learned more than expected about weather, no more shall I call on Janice Huff for explaining the mixture of warm and cold fronts meeting over Wildcliff’s waterfront.

So our first music concert was born on June 19th featuring The Helen Sung Quartet on Wildcliff’s lawn and seawater backdrop. At 80 degrees with warm breezes, attendance was at its best, as singles, couples and families from across Westchester County and even Fairfield CT joined in on a spectacular day.

Helen and her band performed for roughly ninety minutes to a very appreciative audience. Accompanying Helen was Yosvany Terry (Sax), Dezron Douglass (Bass) and Darrell Green (Drums). All of whom were on top of their game. And as requested of all musicians, she started the day with ‘My Favorite Things,’ a favorite of mine performed by John Coltrane.
