BRIDGETON – After spending 48 minutes on the sideline showing it, Dennis Conti couldn’t stop saying it. 

The first-year Buena coach had just seen his team come from behind to open the high school football season with an 18-7 road win over Bridgeton. You can forgive his exuberance after speaking to his team. 

“I love these kids,” Conti said. “Really, I just love these guys.” 

Conti came to Buena by way of Wyckoff. Somehow a North Jersey guy found common ground with the Chiefs.  

“When we first met him, it was completely new,” Buena quarterback Aretz said. “We were kind of upset because we had a bond without old coach. But coach came in and we started to like him immediately when he introduced himself. We developed a bond quickly.

South African label Sindiso Khumalo bases each collection on the life of an extraordinary historical Black woman.

With the pandemic keeping many presentations digital, Khumalo’s namesake label presented a fashion film to feature the new collection and honor the life of Tubman, who used the Underground Railroad to free dozens of slaves after reaching her own freedom in Philadelphia. The film shows a model wandering through fields and farmland, hinting at the landscape Tubman might have known as a child.

As France Mulls Another COVID-19 Lockdown, Dior Debuts On Tik Tok With First Major Live Paris Fashion Week Show

Guests arriving at the Dior Spring 2021 fashion show may have had a sense of dejá Vu. As the fashion flock traveled to Paris from Milan last February, Italy started locking down several regions, including the northern fashion hub town.
