“This is an unusual case, but the state has previously shown that the defendant knew that her conduct was wrong at the time that she committed the charged offenses, and the state will be ready to do so again when the new trial begins.”
“Today is a most unusual day, because we have never lived it before; we will never live it again; it is the only day we have.
Today can be a healthy unusual day for you -- and for others -- if you take time to give someone a smile . . . to express a word of kindness . . . to lend a helping hand to someone in need . . . to write a note of gratitude . . . to give a word of encouragement to someone who is temporarily overcome with problems . . . to share a portion of your material possessions with others.”
“That's not unusual for a player to lose concentration if certain phases of the game go wrong for him. He put some pressure on himself to score. All players want to score as a part of their game. . . . I don't know where his confidence is. You either have it or you don't have it. It doesn't reside in your jockstrap or your brain. His confidence should be in his defense. That's where he plays and rebounds and hustles for us.”
“But he has shown to be a leader on this team. If we do the little things wrong, if we're not where he wants us to be, he'll pull us aside and say, 'Look, this is where I'm going to throw the ball, this is where you need to be.' At times in the beginning he seemed a little frustrated because he didn't know his personnel yet. But now, I think that he's starting to build some trust in us.”
