“We are thrilled that world-renowned acoustic guitarist Francis Goya will join us from Europe as the featured soloist of the New Jersey Youth Symphony Holiday Concert,” said Peter H. Gistelinck, Executive Director of Wharton Arts. “Collaborating with him is a real coup and we look forward to the flair and artistry his presence will bring to this concert.”

Said Artistic Director and Principal Conductor Helen H. Cha-Pyo, “Francis Goya’s music is beloved globally beyond cultural boundaries. I attribute this to his unique ability to communicate deeply through seemingly simple melodies that touch one’s soul and speak to the common human experience. I can’t wait to share the stage with Francis and the talented New Jersey Youth Symphony in presenting our annual holiday concert.”

“I am so excited to join the award-winning New Jersey Youth Symphony for this very special occasion,” said Francis Goya. “Performing with students, the professional musicians of tomorrow, is very dear to my heart especially as I recall the challenges of my own career path. I’m really looking forward to this concert and it is my way to give back to communities all around the world.”

Born to a family of musicians, Francis Goya touched the guitar for the first time at the age of 12. At 16, Francis Goya formed his first group (Les Jivaros) together with his brother who played the percussion, and several friends. In 1966 he became acquainted with producer Lou Deprijck, who joined Goya’s rock group, The Liberty Six (Later, Lou was also the producer for Plastic Bertrand and composed for him the hit song Ça plane pour moi which gained success all over the world). In 1970, Goya was invited to join the professional soul music group J.J. Band, with which he recorded two albums, the second produced by Brian Bennett, percussionist of The Shadows. This recording was made in London for CBS. Thanks to the J.J. Band, Goya took part in a tour all over Europe and Africa. He also became an in-demand studio guitar player, and played on stage with performers of different styles, such as Demis Roussos, The Three Degrees, Vicky Leandros, and many others.

In 1975, he released his first solo recording “Nostalgia,” which quickly reached top positions in the charts all over the world. “Nostalgia” was a tender and romantic melody written by Goya and his father. That was the beginning of his now very impressive international career as romantic acoustic guitar player. Goya continues to tour all over the world, from Asia to Latin America, South Africa, Western and Eastern Europe, and the US. Between each tour, he records at least one new album and that number has now already grown to over 50 albums and most of them have the status of a gold or platinum disc. As of today, Goya has sold over 8 million of his albums globally. He is also renowned as the artistic producer of many hit recordings and is the co-composer of “New York S***,” one the biggest hits of US-based rapper Busta Rhymes. Goya also conducted the Eurovision Symphony Orchestra in Rome in 1991 and in Millstreet in 1993, representing the country of Luxembourg. Francis Goya and his family currently live in Marbella, Spain.

Francis Goya’s music can be enjoyed on Spotify and YouTube. More about him at www.francisgoya.com.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. – In conjunction with the Eastern Intercollegiate Wrestling Association (EIWA), the University of Pennsylvania wrestling is pleased to announce a pair of former Penn grapplers have been selected for membership into the EIWA Hall of Fame. Clint Matter C'97 W'97 and Rick Springman EAS'02 Gr'09, will make up half of the EIWA Hall of Fame Class of 2023.

The induction ceremony will take place on Sunday, March 5, 2023, at The Palestra immediately prior to the finals of the 119th EIWA Championships.

Clinton Matter, C'97 W'97

Clinton Matter, from Delran, NJ, was twice elected captain and helped the program capture back-to-back EIWA team titles in 1996 and 1997, and was a 2x NCAA qualifier. He won two EIWA individual titles at 177 pounds and in doing so, he, along with his father Andrew (Penn State) and brother Brett (Penn), have the distinction of being the EIWA's first father/son/son title holders. Matter captained the 1997 EIWA championship team, who set an EIWA record for largest margin of victory with an 80.5 point advantage over second-place Lehigh.

Clinton was named an NWCA Academic All-American and the Class of 1915 Award winner as the top male student-athlete in Penn's 1997 graduating class. He earned dual degrees from the Wharton School of Business and the College of Arts and Sciences.

Following graduation, Clinton has remained an active member of the Penn, Philadelphia, and national wrestling communities. He currently serves as a member of Penn's Grapplers' Club Board, the Vice Chair and founding member of the Pennsylvania Regional Training Center, and the Vice Chair of the University of Pennsylvania's Athletic Board of Advisors. Matter is also deeply passionate about the Beat the Streets collective mission to empower youth through the sport of wrestling.

Professionally, Clinton has pursued a career in finance, operating in various roles across the global credit markets over the last 25 years. At present, he works as a Senior Investor Associate Fellow at Bridgewater Associates. Clinton and his wife Kourtney (Penn '98 and captain of the Penn women's swimming team) live in Summit, NJ and are blessed with four children.

Richard M. Springman, Ph.D., CAS'02

Richard Springman attended Norristown Area High School in Montgomery Country, Pa., where he recorded a 149-15 overall record. Always in pursuit of the pin, his record included 102 true falls, placing him third in state history. He was a 3x State place winner in Pennsylvania AAA States, State Champion in 1997, and a 2x All-American in USA National Freestyle Championships, among others. Off the mat, Springman attained academic success named as a 4x All-State Academic Team, 2x NHSCA Academic All-American, and 1st Team USA Wrestling Academic All-American in 1997.

Springman's combined athletic and academic prowess enabled him to pursue his collegiate career as a highly touted recruit at the University of Pennsylvania. Springman was a 4x EIWA Finalist, only the 16th wrestler in EIWA history with that achievement. He claimed the EIWA crown once while being a 4x NCAA Qualifier, 2x NCAA Semi-Finalist, and 2x NCAA All-American at 174 pounds. He would also earn two of the four EIWAs special championship awards in 2002, the John Fletcher Memorial Trophy and the Bill Sheridan Memorial Award. His undergraduate wrestling accolades also include being a Senior US Open All-American, placing fifth in freestyle, and qualifying for the US Senior World Team Trials where he placed fifth once again in freestyle.

Springman obtained his Bachelor of Science and Engineering (BSE) in Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics (MEAM) from Penn's School of Engineering and Applied Science and would follow in fellow inductee Clinton Matter's footsteps by winning the Class of 1915 Award as the top male student-athlete in Penn's 2002 graduating class. His academic achievements were recognized by the wrestling community by appointment in two separate years to both the Academic All-Ivy and NWCA All-Academic Teams. Soon after his undergraduate degree, Springman returned to the University of Pennsylvania to obtain his MEAM doctoral degree, during which time he was a volunteer coach for Penn's wrestling team and ran his own wrestling clinic to give back to the sport that had given him so much.

Dr. Springman entered the energy sector where he quickly advanced to the position of Senior Vice President of International Projects and Executive Committee Member at Holtec International, responsible for Holtec's international business and five oversees operations centers. He also holds three patents at the company and has contributed to the development and (nuclear) licensing of numerous products. Springman now lives in Media, Pa. with his wife Laura of 11 years and their three children.

The 119th EIWA Championships will take place on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania at The Palestra. The two-day tournament is set for March 4-5 in University City. Tickets for the championships will go on sale to the general public on December 9.

Refresco fined $49,724 for 'serious' violations at Wharton bottling plant

The world's largest beverage bottler has been fined $49,724 by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration for "serious violations" that could endanger employees at their plant in Wharton.

Employees of the Refresco bottling factory and community groups rallied outside the facility on Nov. 15 to demand better working conditions and recognition of their union. A week later, OSHA began a series of inspections at the plant that continued through last week.

An OSHA citation and notification dated May 19 lists four "serious violations" including wet walking surfaces on four occasions, employee exposure to continuous noise levels at 217% of the permissible action level exposure limit, failing to document the basis for determining that all hazards in a permit space had been eliminated, and failure to certify that propane-powered forklift and electric pallet jack operators had been trained and evaluated.

Refresco claims to be the world’s largest independent bottler for retailers and branded beverage companies in Europe and North America, producing more than 30 million liters of drinks per day. It employs about 4,000 workers in 31 facilities, 26 located in the United States,

Workers at Refresco in Wharton bottle and ship beverages such as BodyArmor Sports Drink for Coca-Cola, Gatorade by Pepsi, Juice Bowl, Arizona Iced Tea and Tropicana juices.

A majority of the 250 workers there voted in June to join the United Electrical, Radio, and Machine Workers of America union. The majority Latino workforce cited unsafe working conditions, treatment by supervisors, low wages and long hours as reasons for starting the union.

"Refresco is committed to the health and safety of its employees," a Refresco spokesperson stated. "As part of these efforts, the company continues its cooperation with OSHA. Refresco welcomes this opportunity to further review and enhance workplace health and safety at its Wharton facility."

In 2015, OSHA cited the plant for eight serious violations, including two "willful violations" for not providing hearing tests for workers exposed to prolonged noise.

The company has until June 13 to abate the current violations and June 19 to pay the fines, or risk incurring additional penalties, interest and administrative costs.

At the November rally, Anthony Sanchez, a machine operator at Refresco for the last 15 years, said employees were "working in unsafe conditions, with low salaries."

"It's been four months since we had our union election," Sanchez said. "Refresco ran an aggressive anti-union campaign to intimidate and try to silence us and now is refusing to negotiate with our union.”

8th District Legislators Urge Public to Voice Opposition to Road Permits in Wharton State Forest

8th District Legislators Urge Public to Voice Opposition to Road Permits in Wharton State Forest In recent virtual public meetings, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection has floated the creation of permits for using the roads in Wharton State Forest. “Visitors and residents of the Pine Barrens have never had to pay to use the roads in Wharton State Forest and shouldn’t have to at any point moving forward,” said 8th Legislative District Senator Jean Stan...

8th District Legislators Urge Public to Voice Opposition to Road Permits in Wharton State Forest

In recent virtual public meetings, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection has floated the creation of permits for using the roads in Wharton State Forest.

“Visitors and residents of the Pine Barrens have never had to pay to use the roads in Wharton State Forest and shouldn’t have to at any point moving forward,” said 8th Legislative District Senator Jean Stanfield. “This is government overreach and something that New Jersey residents already pay for with their highest-in-the-nation taxes.”

Stanfield and her assembly counterparts, Assemblyman Michael Torrissi and Assemblyman Brandon Umba, chastised the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) for holding virtual meetings on such an important topic to the people of their district.

“If the state thinks paid-for vehicle permits are what’s best for the users of Wharton State Forest, then it should hold in-person, public meetings and face the people. But I guarantee you, you’re going to see a bunch of pissed-off Pineys come out to give them a piece of their minds,” Torrissi said.

The first virtual meeting was held on September 27, where the DEP announced intentions to create a mandatory permitting system for vehicles that use the 125,000-acre park’s giant interconnection of dirt and marked roads.

The Department has stated it envisions a system at Wharton similar to the Mobile Sport Fishing Permit system at Island Beach State Park, which mandates residents pay $195 annually for vehicle access to the park in order to fish.

“This not only affects drivers who drive the park for recreational use, but hunters and fishermen who use their vehicles as a means of getting to proper locations. This plan needs to be shut down, and I urge all residents to voice their opinion on it, one way or the other,” said Umba.

Residents can write a message to the DEP by using its contact page here – https://www.state.nj.us/cgi-bin/dep/contactdep_general.pl

Or fill out its park use survey here – https://nj.gov/dep/parksandforests/wharton/
