A CHURCH of Scotland minister has been sacked after several women accused him of “misconduct”. Rev Dr Elijah Wade Smith, 32, is said to have abused his position in Glasgow just four years into the job. Rev Dr Elijah Wade Smith has been suspended A special committee of the Presbytery of Glasgow launched a probe into the allegations earlier this month and upheld the complaint. Dr Smith, from California, USA, was removed as a minister last week following the disciplinary hearing. Mistress of randy Church of Scotland Reverend who cheated on his wife insists he deserves lifetime ban from pulpit A Church of Scotland spokesman said: “A Presbyterial Commission was convened to consider complaints against Dr Elijah Smith, who was then minister at Queen’s Park Church. “The complaints were upheld and a sentencing hearing was held on Wednesday, May 15. ‘The decision of the church court was to remove Dr Smith’s status as a minister.” The Glasgow minister was accused of misconduct by several women Dr Smith, described as one of the church’s rising stars, was ordained at Queen’s Park Church, Govanhill, Glasgow, in January 2015. He moved to Scotland to study for a PhD at St Andrews University and became the Church of Scotland’s second-youngest minister. The National reports his congregation at Queen’s Park were first told he had been simply suspended, without offering a reason. Before the decision of the Presbyterial Commission, the Rev Ewan Kelly, associate minister of Queen’s Park, said: “These are strange times we inhabit at the moment without our friend Elijah and our parish minister. “It’s so hard. We don’t know what’s happening and when or if he will return. Quite literally, we are in a time of wilderness.” Dr Smith, a passionater artist and musician, has been given the option to appeal the decision. He directed requests for comment to the Church of Scotland. [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN SCOTTISH NEWS” posts_category=”76″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] It’s not the first time a priest has been suspended over scandalous antics. We told earlier how a kirk minister was suspended for cheating on his wife with a married musician. Reverend Ian Bradley, 68, had “inappropriate intimate sexual relations” with the wo­man, including a weekend tryst at a cottage in Argyll. The retired uni professor, of St Andrews, was suspended for a year by Church of Scotland chiefs. His mistress later called for him to receive a lifetime pulpit ban.

I started my St Andrews journey in September 2011, when I arrived in Scotland for the very first time. With its long-standing, quirky traditions, strong sense of community and amazing academic opportunities, the University of St Andrews immediately made me feel at home. The Women’s Football Club soon became my second family, and opened up […]

After a series of rain-inspired postponements seven local baseball and softball teams will get back to their North Coast Section title pursuits tonight. For some, tonight will signal the end of a nearly two-week stretch since last playing a game. Patient Panthers One of those clubs which hasn’t taken the field in nearly a fortnight is the Big 5 Conference-champion McKinleyville High baseball team (20-3). After losing to Eureka 6-4 in extra innings in the Charles Lakin Tournament championship on May 10 the No. 1 seed in Division-IV has sat on stand by. Tonight the Panthers, after receiving a first-round bye, will host No. 8 Redwood Christian — San Lorenzo (18-7) in the tournament’s quarterfinal round. “It’s been tough with the weather,” McKinleyville’s head coach Scott St. John said. “But we’re pretty well set up inside our place so we’ve been able to get our hits and practice in. We’re ready to go.” Cameron Saso, who’s 7-0 with a no decision this season, will start at pitcher for McKinleyville tonight. The junior has tossed 66 strikeouts and given up just 38 hits this season. Redwood Christian advanced to tonight’s game with a narrow 6-5 win over No. 9 Kelseyville in its first-round game. McKinleyville’s No. 2 seeded softball team (20-3) likewise hasn’t played since claiming a Lakin tournament title on May 10. For it’s dominant season the Panthers received a first-round bye. It will play host to No. 10 Kennedy — Richmond (12-7-1) tonight at 5 p.m. Kennedy shutout No. 7 Piedmont 6-0 to advance to tonight’s quarterfinal game. “Our team has been preparing as usual. The weather has not been ideal but we’ve worked around it,” McKinleyville’s head coach Shanna McCracken said. “The girls have been putting in serious work. We plan to show up ready to play tomorrow and not take anything lightly.” McKinleyville has already tied the 2011 Panthers for the most wins in a single season (20) since 2004 (further records were unavailable before this edition went to press), and can surpass that mark with a victory tonight. D-VI dynasty In 2018 both the South Fork baseball and softball teams claimed North Coast Section D-VI championships. This season, both are No. 1 seeds in the division and are poised to give South Fork a repeat as dual-title champs. After first-round byes each will engage in semifinal contests tonight. No. 1 South Fork baseball (13-6) will host No. 4 San Francisco Waldorf (8-11) for the rights to play for the D-VI championship. The match up is a repeat of last year’s D-VI championship, which South Fork won by a 4-1 count. South Fork softball (14-9) will host No. 4 Emery (10-6) tonight in its semifinal-round game. As a No. 4 seed last season South Fork beat No. 2 Geyserville 22-5 to win a section title. D-IV baseball — No. 7 Piedmont at No. 2 Arcata After starting 14-0 — its best beginning to a season in more than two decades — Arcata High baseball (20-6) split its latter 12 games of the regular season, seeing three of its six losses come at the hands of McKinleyville — so it makes sense Arcata was rewarded the No. 2 seed in D-IV. After a first-round bye the Tigers will host No. 7 Piedmont tonight at 5 p.m. at the Arcata Ball Park. Piedmont (16-8) downed No. 10 Lick-Wilmerding in its first-round game. D-V softball — No. 3 Credo at No. 2 Hoopa Valley No. 2 Hoopa Valley (14-8) will look to advance to its second consecutive NCS semifinal round tonight when it hosts No. 3 Credo — Rohnert Park (8-3) at 5 p.m. Hoopa beat No. 7 University 8-5 in its quarterfinal round game on Friday while Credo downed No. 6 Head-Royce. D-IV softball — No. 6 Arcata at No. 3 Cardinal Newman The lone H-DNL team on the road tonight is Arcata softball. The No. 6 seeds will try their luck against No. 3 Cardinal Newman tonight at 5 p.m. Arcata (17-9) advanced to tonight’s quarterfinal round game with a 9-4 win over No. 11 Berean Christian on Friday while Cardinal Newman (19-4) enjoyed a first-round bye.

WE never thought that we would see the day when the Duchess of Cambridge hung up her prim dresses in favour of on-trend culottes and trainers. Kate has had a style overhaul this year, with the 37-year-old opting for more stylish brands and age-appropriate outfits. HRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attending the BAFTAs 2019 at the Royal Albert Hall in London This week alone, Kate scored a sartorial hat-trick, stepping out in three fashion-forward looks that have grabbed our attention. And it is all thanks to her new stylist and friend Virginia Chadwyck-Healey – nicknamed “Ginnie” – a former executive editor at Vogue. She stepped in after Kate’s regular stylist Natasha Archer went on maternity leave in December. And with Meghan tucked away with newborn Archie, now is the perfect opportunity for Kate to claw back the spotlight from the glamorous actress. Here, Fashion Editor Gabriele Dirvanauskas gives her verdict on some of Kate’s most eye-catching outfits from the past five months… and the lowdown on the woman responsible. February 27 Kate Middleton at the Empire Music Hall, Belfast The Duchess opted for this green metallic, lurex dress from Italian label Missoni to visit Northern Ireland. While pleats are a classic look, we loved the mermaid-inspired design. It was miles apart from Kate’s old tailored twinsets. March 12 The Duchess of Cambridge at Henry Fawcett Children’s Society The purple £800 Gucci blouse caused shockwaves – partly as Kate purposely wore it backwards. She ditched her usual skinny jeans in favour of wide-leg trousers and accessorised with a handbag instead of clutch. May 7 Kate at the King’s Cup Charity Regatta, South East London She dressed up as a sailor for a sailing event and it worked. The wide-leg trousers made another welcome appearance and she even substituted her beloved courts for trendy block heels. May 14 Duchess’ D-Day exhibition, Bletchley Park look Polka dots are hot this season, but critics argued the knee-high split was unseemly. Kate happily sported the £1,750 Alessandra Rich dress after Meghan’s actress pal Abigail Spencer wore it to the Duchess of Sussex’s wedding last year. May 19 The Duchess holding Prince George’s hand with Prince William, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis closely behind at the Chelsea Flower Show Kate usually sticks to upmarket brands but the floral frock she wore to unveil a garden she co-designed cost just £89 from high street store & Other Stories. It has since sold out, with savvy shoppers flogging it for up to £375 on eBay. May 20 Kate Middleton in her second floral frock at the Chelsea Flower Show Kate tapped straight into this season’s prairie trend with this £2,500 floral-print dress by the Canadian designer Erdem. She teamed it with on-trend espadrille wedges and her usual bouncy blow-dry was replaced with a bohemian ’do. Another great look on Kate at the Chelsea Flower Show It was another wardrobe win for Kate on Monday when she sported £69.95 brown culottes by Spanish label Massimo Dutti. She teamed them with a £255 broderie anglaise blouse by Brit brand M.I.H and £50 Superga trainers. What she used to wear Kate Middleton in November 2018 at the UCL Developmental Neuroscience Lab, London The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (front) and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex leave Westminster Abbey, London, after attending a National Service to mark the centenary of the Armistice last year Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge at last year’s Christmas party at Kensington Palace for families and children of deployed personnel from RAF Coningsby and RAF Marham serving in Cyprus So who is her super stylist? VIRGINIA “Ginnie” Chadwyck-Healey worked her way up to become Executive Retail Editor at Brit fashion bible Vogue over 12 years. The 36-year-old said her decision to leave the publication last year “felt like both a divorce and a rebirth”. She added that since then, her “heels are lower, the carb count is a little higher, the pace is a little slower, the freebies are a little fewer”. Virginia ‘Ginnie’ Chadwyck-Healey met Kate Middleton at St Andrews university and became her stylist after quitting her role as Executive Retail Editor at Vogue Ginnie studied history of art at St Andrews university, where she became close friends with fellow students Kate and William. [article-rail-section title=”most read in fabulous” posts_category=”24″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] While she may have hit the high street for Kate this week, Ginnie is nearly as posh as HRH – her dad is the third Lord Strathalmond and her Eton-educated husband, Oliver Chadwyck-Healey, is a buyer for the middle-class masses at Waitrose. The family upped sticks from London’s plush South Kensington to the Berkshire countryside three years ago, with daughters Nancy, four, and Maggie, three, where Ginnie is slowly changing the minds of her posh pals who think that “L.K. Bennett was the only place to buy work shoes”. Well, she has managed to convince one very important client . . .
