Wuestefeld, Rita

first_imgRita Wuestefeld , 90, of St. Leon, IN passed away on Sunday, December 16. Rita loved Christmas time…the decorating, all the lights, getting family together and celebrating the birth of Christ. Every year about this time she would make her trip to Hallmark and add to her dancing snowmen collection. Rita also loved to read and enjoyed sitting on her swing at night eating ice cream while watching the cows and the cars go by. Rita loved popcorn, and around Halloween Rita was known as the “popcorn lady” because she would bag it up and pass it out to all the kids.Rita leaves behind her sons Dennis (Joanie) of St. Leon, David (Betty) of St. Leon, Ron (Arleen) of St. Leon, Roger (Kelly) of Harrison, and daughters Diane Kaehler of St. Leon and Sharon Chaney of Colerain.

Great start for Republic pair

first_imgMartin O’Neill enjoyed a dream start to his reign as Ireland manager as Robbie Keane sparked a 3-0 demolition of Latvia. The two wide men ran repeatedly at the Latvia defence, while Hoolahan exploited the space in between the visitors’ defensive and midfield lines to good effect as the Republic dominated. They might have been ahead with just 12 minutes gone when McGeady intelligently squared a free-kick to Hoolahan to help it across goal to Keane, who uncharacteristically shot straight at keeper Vanins. But the one thing Trapattoni was able to rely upon most consistently throughout his five and a half-year reign was the Los Angeles Galaxy frontman’s ability to find the back of the net, and his enduring potency represents both a boon and a concern for O’Neill with few other members of his squad having shown any signs of being able to adequately replace the 33-year-old in the long-term. Keane was in exactly the right place at the right time to stab home from close range after McClean had flicked on McGeady’s 22nd-minute corner, and he might have doubled his tally within two minutes had Vanins not produced an important save. McClean dragged a 34th-minute wide of the left post and then sliced another wide of the right in the final minute of the half with Ireland in almost complete control. To their credit, Latvia refused to lie back and accept their fate and went close within seconds of the restart when first-half substitute Aleksandrs Fertovs sent a dipping long-range effort over Keiren Westwood’s crossbar. But it was the home side who continued to pose the greater threat and an off-balance McClean blazed over after Hoolahan had pulled the ball back to him. Vanins managed to beat away McGeady’s 63rd-minute strike, but with his defenders dropping ever deeper, he was seeing for more of the ball than he would have liked. But the Spartak Moscow man was not to be denied and he got his reward when he thumped a skidding right-foot drive into the bottom corner from 25 yards to make it 2-0. The victory was complete 11 minutes from time when Long tapped home Seamus Coleman’s cross at the far post just six minutes after his introduction. Fellow replacement Anthony Stokes drew a flying save from Vanins at the death, but the home fans filed out of the stadium more than content. Keane extended his senior international goal tally to 62 just 22 minutes into O’Neill’s first game at the helm, prompting namesake and assistant manager Roy Keane to punch the air in delight before returning to his seat on the bench. Aiden McGeady, who prospered under the Ulsterman during his time in charge at Celtic, extended the lead a with a well-taken second 22 minutes from time, just his third goal in 62 senior appearances for his country. Press Association The pair were applauded warmly from the Aviva Stadium pitch when they made way with 17 minutes remaining by a crowd who had turned up to witness the dawn of a new era for Irish football and were given just what they wanted to see. But there was more to come and substitute Shane Long capped a convincing performance with a 79th-minute third as the Latvians wilted in the face of a concerted assault. O’Neill made six changes to the side sent out by Noel King in last months’ final World Cup qualifier, a 3-1 victory over Kazakhstan, and Ireland, ranked 60th by FIFA, were simply too strong for 117th-placed Latvia. Indeed, had it not been for keeper Andris Vanins, the lead could have been significantly greater by the time the half-time whistle sounded with Keane heading to the dressing room knowing on another night he could have been doing so with a hat-trick to his name. There were plenty of pluses for O’Neill and his number two, few more pleasing than the contribution of former Derry City winger James McClean, who once again looked like the player who burst on to the Barclays Premier League scene in the week’s immediately after the manager’s arrival at Sunderland. The appointment of O’Neill and number two Keane has captured the imagination of a public which had grown weary of Giovanni Trapattoni’s conservatism, but the Ulsterman acknowledged in his pre-match press conference that the honeymoon period would last only 10 minutes. He may have been unduly pessimistic in his assessment, but he knows only performances and ultimately results will determine the success or otherwise of his mission, and the early signs are promising. The presence of playmaker and Wes Hoolahan in his starting line-up, as well as that of wingers Aiden McGeady and McClean, was a statement of intent, and one which was warmly welcomed by the home supporters. last_img read more

DeSantis: COVID-19 Dashboard Designer Faces Cyber Sex Harassment Charges

first_imgJones pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor stalking charges. She listed the Florida Department of Health (DOH) as her employer upon her arrest.DeSantis says Jones is not a scientist nor the chief architect of the online dashboard. He adds that she holds degrees in journalism, communications, and geography.“She was putting data on the portal which the scientists believed didn’t believe was valid data,” DeSantis explains. “So she didn’t listen to the people who were her superiors.”Jones has a Ph.D. in Geography from Florida State University, a Master’s degree in Geography and Mass Communication from Louisiana State University, and a Bachelor of Arts degree from Syracuse in Geography and Journalism, according to a resume posted on FSU’s website.Florida’s COVID-19 portal is designed and operated through a data mapping software from a company called ESRI. An April 2020 article on their website says Jones led the creation of the state’s COVID-19 dashboard.“She put [her] work on hold and quickly created a COVID-19 dashboard,” the company’s article says. “She spent the weekend compiling cases data and configuring the dashboard.”Gov. DeSantis says the data on the dashboard is transparent, and, “Any insinuation otherwise is just typical partisan narrative trying to be spun.” The woman who designed Florida’s COVID-19 dashboard and was later fired is also facing an open criminal investigation for sexual cyber harassment and cyber stalking, Gov. Ron DeSantis announced on Wednesday.Rebekah Jones told West Palm Beach television station WPEC this week that her termination was “not voluntary,” adding that she was taken out of the job for refusing to censor data on the online dashboard.She claims that officials directed her to “manually change data to drum up support for the plan to reopen.”However, the governor says that Jones was actually released for insubordination, and repeated that during a visit in Orlando with Vice President Mike Pence on Wednesday.“She didn’t listen to people who are her superiors,” explains DeSantis. “Come to find out she’s also under active criminal charges in the state of Florida. She’s being charged with cyber stalking and cyber sexual harassment.”A Tallahassee police report states that a man claimed to be a victim of revenge porn by Jones last summer. He told police that he had an injunction against Jones for a year. It expired recently. Additionally, the man alleged that Jones posted naked pictures of him online, and that she shared the content with his employer and family.Yesterday, Florida received a big dump of test results, which yielded about 500 new cases out of more than 75,000 results for a statewide positivity rate of 0.64%.— Ron DeSantis (@GovRonDeSantis) May 20, 2020last_img read more

Football Bees break early skid, defeat West Genesee

first_imgEven with back-to-back losses to start 2019, the Baldwinsville football team understood that the important work would commence when Class AA-1 division play got going.Armed with both the harsh lessons of the previous two weeks and a newfound urgency, the Bees welcomed West Genesee to Pelcher-Arcaro Stadium Friday night and battled its way to a 20-12 victory over the Wildcats.WG graduated most of its starters from the 2018 team that reached the Section III final. Like B’ville, the Wildcats had lost to Horseheads, but had recovered to defeat Corcoran 28-12 a week later.A big moment came early, with the Bees pinned on its own one-yard line. Instead of the ground game, Braden McCard threw 32 yards to Pat May, and the momentum shifted as McCard later scored from one yard out.B’ville’s defense kept the Wildcats quiet until the middle of the second period, when a 40-yard pass from Braeden McNeil to John Benson set up Exavier Brumfield’s one-yard touchdown plunge..But the Bees blocked the extra point and quickly answered with a drive of its own, McCard ending with a seven-yard scoring toss to Cameron Jessen. The extra point had B’ville in front 14-6, where it stayed at halftime.Late in the third quarter, WG put together another solid drive that quarterback Braeden McNeil finished by scrambling four yards for a TD. Again, the Bees were able to stop the tying conversion attempt, Pat May tackling Brumfield just before he could dive past the goal line, so it was 14-12.Controlling the clock, B’ville moved to the Wildcats’ 30-yard line, where Letizia made his biggest run of the night, following perfect blocks as he dashed to the end zone with 5:35 to play. All told, Letizia ran for 152 yards on 24 carries, accounting for a majority of the Bees’ total of 228 yards on the ground as Willie Strong added 57 yards on 12 carries.Though the Bees missed the two-point attempt, its defense made one more big stop to cap a solid performance in the wake of allowing 72 combined points to Jamestown and Horseheads.Letizia, aside from his contributions in the ground game and special teams, also had a team-high nine tackles, seven of them solo. Kolby Hahn was close behind with seven tackles as Dan Widrick had five tackles.B’ville now looks to build upon its 1-0 league mark when it visits Rome Free Academy next Friday at 7 p.m. The Black Knights come off its biggest victory in years, having stunned defending sectional Class AA champion Cicero-North Syracuse 34-27 in its league opener.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story Tags: Baldwinsvillefootballlast_img read more

Café 84 adds two international options

first_imgStriving to offer a better variety of food — specifically, international cuisine — USC Hospitality has opened two new restaurants to Café 84.Choices · Students purchase a meal at Café 84’s newest addition, Wasabi Sushi. Daphne’s Greek Café has also been added to the venue’s roster. – Courtney Sandlin | Daily Trojan Hospitality has added Daphne’s Greek Café and Wasabi Sushi, getting rid of The Grill to make space.Director of Hospitality Kristian Klinger said the idea was conceived in November last year, and officials decided to do the work over winter break to avoid coinciding with the construction of the Ronald Tutor Campus Center, which will be in its final stages this summer.“We will be pretty busy next summer with the campus center so we wouldn’t have as [many] resources available,” Klinger said. “This was the perfect time.”Klinger said Wasabi Sushi was chosen because Hospitality received feedback from students that they wanted sushi options beyond the packaged, refrigerated sushi available around campus.Hospitality is also aiming to turn Café 84 into a hub of international food, Klinger said, and he hopes the changes to the venue reflect this goal.“It’s going to be more of an international facility; it’s very diverse and we want to continue to offer that,” Klinger said.Café 84 was chosen for a face-lift because with The Lot closing at the end of the school year it was the only restaurant area that hosts multiple food vendors, Klinger said.Aside from the two new eateries, Café 84’s look has changed slightly, incorporating new posters and menus. The restaurant has also added cereal and changed its pasta recipe.Takako Lee, a senior majoring in communication, said she expects more people will start going to Café 84 with the new additions.“I love sushi, so I’m excited there’s a new place to get it from,” Lee said.Stephanie Shum, a junior majoring in business administration, said she is happy USC Hospitality is adding new options for students.“It’s good because some of the things they had here they have at The Lot, so it was kind of redundant,” Shum said. “Restaurant variety allows students to eat at different spots on campus.”Jonathan Igner, a senior majoring in business administration, said he believes these additions could have more people staying on campus to eat.“It’s cool to have new options,” he said. “I’ve been here for four years, and you get tired of the same thing and you have to go off campus to get something different.”last_img read more

Fast reaction: 3 takeaways from Syracuse’s Elite Eight win over Virginia

first_imgCHICAGO — Top-seeded Virginia (29-8, 13-5 Atlantic Coast) looked the part of a No. 1 in the first half, but the Cavaliers collapsed in the second and Syracuse (23-13, 9-9) escaped with a 68-62 victory on the heels of Malachi Richardson’s 23 points and a 15-0 run to advance to the Final Four.Here are three quick reactions from a comeback for the ages.Freshman sensationTo describe Richardson in the second half, you’d probably need a word not in the dictionary. He scored just two point in the first half. Two. Erratic drives and missed layups. Complaining to the referees.He’s been good in second halves after poor first halves this season, but nothing like this. Nothing even close. He had 21 points in the second half and put the Orange on his back with cold-blooded 3-pointers and dives over the scorer’s table to save Syracuse possessions.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe freshman tied a career-high with 23 points and led a charge back from 16 points down to solidify the Orange as one of college basketball’s Final Four teams.London bridgeVirginia point guard London Perrantes entered Sunday’s game shooting 48 percent from the field, but two early misses provided some hope for Syracuse to catch a break from falling victim to his efficiency from behind the arc.But the top of the key was Perrantes’ real estate for the rest of the first half, as he knocked down five 3-pointers — four from straight on while he was wide open — in the first 20 minutes to open up a 14-point UVA lead at the break.He hit one more from the same spot in the second half, but played no factor in holding off Syracuse’s comeback while finishing with only three second half-points.Moving the rockOn Saturday, Perrantes said Virginia would put Malcolm Brogdon at the foul line to attack Syracuse’s zone, but it was Isaiah Wilkins who operated from the stripe in the first half. He was often the starting point of an eventual Perrantes 3, and Virginia then zipped the ball around the perimeter before either an open shot or a feed back to Wilkins before a bounce pass dumped to Anthony Gill down low.In the second half, Brogdon was put at the charity stripe and drew two defenders almost every time he received the ball. That opened up more shots from outside, a kick out for a Darius Thompson 3-pointer and dumps down low and for a Mike Tobey two-handed flush. Virginia’s rapid ball movement through the crevices of the zone picked apart SU’s defense.When SU pressed with less than 10 minutes to go in the game, it disrupted Virginia’s methodical pace, and the Orange was able to cut its deficit by chunks. Then Syracuse took a lead, and never looked back. Comments Published on March 27, 2016 at 7:11 pm Contact Matt: | @matt_schneidman Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
