Ronald survives and resides in Colorado. Other survivors include 5 grandchildren, 8 great grandchildren, and 2 great-great grandchildren. Also surviving is a very special friend and her caregiver, Carrie Noble of Versailles, IN .Early in her work career, Rosie worked as a server at the Evergreen Restaurant and then at the Dunbar & Bultman Dairy which had both been located in Osgood. She then became the owner and operator of a clothing store known as the “Little Folks Shop” from 1960-1964, in downtown Osgood. She and her husband also owned and operated their school buses and drove for the Osgood school , which then became Jac-Cen-Del from the late 1950’s thru the 70’s, and after doing this for 27 years she then retired.Rosie was truly a workaholic throughout her career, but was also a mother who gave selflessly and endlessly to her children. She was always extremely supportive and fair in raising her family.Rosie was a past member of the Osgood Eastern Stars and the Osgood Methodist Church.

Coming Off The Bench

first_imgThis is a follow-up to yesterday’s blog, “Alarming Trends”.  Two of my most valuable players when I was a varsity coach were Melvin Siefert and Scott Clawson.  Both of these young men were upperclassmen but played much better when they had a few minutes of bench time before they entered the game.  Both of them were able to analyze what was going on.  That way when they went on the floor they knew what they needed to do.Melvin Siefert played more minutes his senior year than any other player on my roster even though he never started a game!  That same analytical mind made Melvin one of the best coaches to ever coach in this area.  Scott Clawson did not follow into the coaching field, but he is an extremely successful businessman in his own right.  These two individuals along with several other upperclassmen that played for me were valuable assets and allowed our team to win almost 80% of our games.I am so glad they agreed to be on the bench!!!last_img read more

Mother’s kidnapp: Siasia shops for N75m

Madam Siasia, 76, was abducted mid-July at about 2am in Odoni, Sagbama Local Government Area of Bayelsa State. The former national team gaffer revealed that he has re-opened negotiations  with the men of the underworld to ensure his mother’s release. His words: “It’s a difficult time for me and the family. Mama has since been with the kidnappers and it appears I have been left to carry the cross alone. “I need help and I hope Nigerians rally round us in this regard. We had re-opened negotiations with them (kidnappers) and we hope we succeed in our quest for Mama to return home soon. “She had spent over one month with them and I’m presently sourcing for funds for the ransom as demanded. “A few guys have been of tremendous support to us and we hope we succeed in bringing her back soon.” Madam Siasia was also kidnapped in 2015 and the family parted with millions in ransom to free her.Tags: Madam OgereOdoniSagbama LGASamson SiasiaSuper Eagleslast_img read more


Bruce wary of wounded City

first_imgHull boss Steve Bruce has warned his side to beware a Manchester City backlash as the Tigers head into Saturday’s KC Stadium showdown looking to take a giant stride towards Barclays Premier League survival. Bruce believes two more wins will see Hull safe and knows many believe now is a fine chance to get one of them against Manuel Pellegrini’s men, who head into the game on the back of successive defeats to Wigan and Barcelona. But with City facing a sudden readjustment from dreams of a quadruple to needing a win to sustain realistic hopes of keeping up with league leaders Chelsea, Bruce has cautioned that they could be at their most dangerous. Bruce said: “A week ago everybody was saying can they make it four, and two months ago they were unbeatable. It’s coming down to that part of the season where you get cup shocks and different results. “But we have got to make sure we’re aware there could be a backlash, because of the talent they’ve got and they players they’ve got and the expectation that goes with being Manchester City. “They’ve had a difficult week and as always with these big teams, when they have had a difficult week they will want to come out fighting. They still have the league to play for so they will want to come here and turn us over.” The Tigers have been in buoyant mood all week after the FA Cup quarter-final win over Sunderland and will be able to recall cup-tied strikers Nikica Jelavic and Shane Long to their squad. City manager Pellegrini hopes top scorer Sergio Aguero will be out of action for no longer than a fortnight. Aguero was withdrawn at half-time after feeling a twinge in his hamstring during the midweek Champions League loss in Barcelona. City are still waiting to learn the full extent of the injury but an absence of two weeks would put the Argentinian out of the derby against Manchester United on March 25. Aguero underwent a scan on his return to Manchester and results are expected at the weekend. The 25-year-old missed five games with a hamstring injury in February but Pellegrini is hopeful the problem is not as serious this time. Pellegrini said: “Sergio will know on Saturday what he has. It is 48 hours after the exam when they will know exactly what he has. “I really don’t know, but I don’t think it is really very serious. I am hopeful he will (only) be injured for a couple of weeks.” Aguero’s latest problem is a blow to City as they bid to recover from FA Cup and Champions League elimination to gain ground in the title race. City have fallen nine points behind leaders Chelsea, but have three games in hand, while focusing on other competitions in the past three weeks. Pellegrini said: “We need to work hard with everyone, with the staff, with all the players. Now we must try to fight for the title in the Premier League.” City are also still without striker Stevan Jovetic and defender Matija Nastasic but Pellegrini was hopeful that “maybe next week they can be fit”. Right-back Micah Richards is also out with an unspecified knock. Press Associationlast_img read more


Ronaldo’s Portugal look to continue momentum against lowly Morocco

first_imgMoscow, June 19: Smarting after a last-gasp defeat to Iran, Morocco will have to deal with the peerless might of Portugal, spearheaded by Cristiano Ronaldo, who will attempt to follow up his World Cup opening game heroics when the two sides meet for a Group B clash here on Wednesday.Five-time World Player of the Year Ronaldo grabbed a hat-rick as European champions Portugal snatched a 3-3 draw against Spain in a heavyweight showdown in Sochi.It was Ronaldo’s 51st career treble, and the 51st in the tournament’s history, as the Real Madrid superstar became just the fourth player to score in four World Cups.In hot form, Ronaldo will once again look to continue his magic at the Luzhniki Stadium and haul Portugal into the last 16.“I am very happy, it’s a nice personal record to have, one more in my career,” Ronaldo was quoted as saying. “For me the most important thing is to emphasise what the team did against one of the favourites to win this World Cup.”Portugal are not widely regarded as one of the contenders despite their unlikely European success two years back.Portugal were less than impressive against Spain in the first game save Ronaldo who was the difference between the two sides.A world class free kick two minutes from full time sparked wild celebrations from the former Manchester United marksman and his team.Coming to Morocco, they did not concede a single goal in the final qualifying round as they sealed a return to the World Cup for the first time in 20 years.Not expected to make the knockouts, their slim hopes were dented when a 95th-minute own goal by Aziz Bouhaddouz gifted Iran three points.Herve Renard’s men face a monumental challenge, with games to come against Portugal and Spain.In defence, they have Medhi Benatia and Achraf Hakimi who will be wary of the threat Ronaldo possesses.Further forward, winger Nordin Amrabat has been ruled out of the clash after a clash of heads with Iran’s Vahid Amiri in St Petersburg on Friday.

FIFA Conference on Development starts tomorrow

first_imgDELEGATES for the 2019 FIFA FIFA Conference on Development will begin arriving today for the two-day event (May 14 – 15) at the Marriott Hotel.The Government of Guyana, through the Department of Tourism and the Tourism Hospitality Association of Guyana (THAG) will partner with the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) to host the conference which president Wayne Forde said will have the participation of every affiliated member of the Caribbean Football Union.Forde, in explaining the importance of the conference, said the full body of the FIFA Development Committee will be in Guyana, where one of the key areas of focus will be the implementation of a comprehensive regional schools football programme.The GFF president noted that during the visit of FIFA president Gianni Infantino to Guyana in 2017, there was an extensive discussion on a Regional Schools football programme with CARICOM Secretary-General, Irwin LaRocque, and the extent it could contribute on the overall development on the game in the Caribbean.The Development Committee, according to FIFA, shall deal with the Federation’s development programmes and shall devise and propose appropriate strategies, check these strategies periodically and analyse the support provided to member associations, confederations and zonal/regional associations in this regard.The FIFA Forward Development Programme was first adopted by the FIFA Congress on May 9, 2016 and it was to become not only a “step change” for global football development and the way we share the success of the FIFA World Cup with our member associations, but also one of the most prominent sports’ development programmes.FIFA Forward is built to provide 360-degree, tailor-made support for football development in each of our member associations and the six confederations and is based on three principles – more investment, more impact, and more oversight.last_img read more


LAPD to crack down on traffic laws, again

first_imgThe Department of Public Safety and LAPD will be conducting a second bike traffic enforcement effort today, despite sentiment from many students that the first crackdown was ineffective and unfair.The crackdown on bike traffic will focus on the intersections on Jefferson Boulevard at Hoover Street and at McClintock Avenue. It will mirror the enforcement effort on Sept. 18, when LAPD gave out about 120 traffic citations, according to DPS Assistant Chief John Thomas.Ticket to ride · An LAPD officer issues a traffic citation to at student by the intersection of McClintock Avenue and Jefferson Boulevard during LAPD’s Sept. 18 traffic enforcement crackdown. LAPD will again be ticketing in droves on Wednesday. – Nathaniel Gonzalez | Daily TrojanSince then, Thomas said, LAPD officers have sporadically come to campus and ticketed students, but Wednesday’s enforcement will be the first concentrated effort since September. Still, Thomas said he hopes the periodic citations have helped decrease the number of offenders.“We’re expecting them to write fewer tickets this time, meaning the behavior is changing and students are at least more mindful,” Thomas said. “If we write more of the same number we’re not having the impact we need to see.”Despite Thomas’ optimism, many students said they have not noticed a difference in biking habits.“People still ride against the traffic and in the intersections and they just hope they don’t get caught,” said Jeremiah Forkkio, a junior majoring in business administration.DPS Capt. David Carlisle, however, said the occasional citation efforts, even if they don’t make a noticeable change, help prevent collisions and other bike safety issues.“If we don’t occasionally take action to impound bikes or give tickets the problems get worse and worse,” Carlisle said. “When the resources allow it, we need to keep some control and order with the traffic flow.”Some students said they do not think it is worthwhile for LAPD to dedicate time and resources to patrolling the intersections.“It seems like LAPD has a lot more problems it could be dealing with than if USC students are walking their bikes in the crosswalks,” said Alicia Johnson, a junior majoring in French and neuroscience.But Thomas noted that it is LAPD’s South Traffic Division that enforces these traffic laws, and one of its primary tasks is ensuring traffic safety.“Students say the officers can be doing something more important, but traffic safety is one of the most important quality of life issues in the city of Los Angeles,” Thomas said. “We have two of the most problematic intersections in our division, so it’s a good use of South Traffic Division’s resources.”Other students argued that the cost of the citations is too steep given the magnitude of the violation.Rachel Fuhrman, a sophomore majoring in international relations, was given a $212 ticket in September for failing to obey posted traffic control signals. But Fuhrman argued the signs were not clear enough.“There was a sign that said, ‘Walk bike in crosswalk,’ which is pretty much illegible because the ‘bike’ part is graffitied out,” Fuhrman said. “It just says, ‘Walk in the crosswalk.’”Fuhrman said she thinks tickets should be given just to students who are bikingdangerously. She does not think students should be ticketed for coming to a near stop and then slowly entering the crosswalk.Still, Thomas said, officials must consider pedestrian safety when deciding whether or not to ticket.“The crosswalk is an extension of the sidewalk,” Thomas said. “But with the number of bikers causing the people walking to get out of the bicyclists’ way, we consider that disregard for the safety of others.”Thomas noted, however, that most of the citations issued were not for biking through the crosswalks, but for riding in the wrong direction.Geoff Montgomery, a sophomore majoring in business administration, said he received a $174 ticket for biking against the flow of traffic. Montgomery plans to appeal the ticket in court, however.“I think the city realizes that by making students jump through hoops, a lot of kids will just pay for it to avoid the hassle,” Montgomery said. “It would be one thing if it were a $30 bike ticket but it’s more than some speeding tickets that my parents have gotten.”Despite students’ wariness of the enforcement efforts, Carlisle said they are worthwhile if they make even a small difference — and he thinks they have.“We have noticed students walking their bikes in the crosswalk at Jefferson and McClintock and that may not have been the case in recent years,” Carlisle said. “It may be a small incremental increase in compliance but if that makes fewer accidents then we’re happy.”last_img read more


Syracuse falls to Notre Dame 31-15 despite forcing 5 turnovers

first_img Published on September 28, 2014 at 12:03 am Contact Phil: | @PhilDAbb EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Durell Eskridge thought he had a pick-six.Early in the third quarter, the safety saw a throw coming and he darted behind Will Fuller, looking to snare a pass with the whole field ahead of him. Instead, Fuller hauled it in easily for a first down and Eskridge was all alone, going the wrong way.Syracuse’s night didn’t go too differently.“They beat our rumps today. Simple as that,” head coach Scott Shafer said. “Sometimes you’ve just got to say, ‘We got beat.’ And we did.”On a national stage, Syracuse (2-2) stood in its own way. A flurry of penalties and lack of offensive execution stunted the Orange’s hopes of reaching the end zone throughout the first three quarters. The result was a 31-15 victory by No. 8 Notre Dame (4-0) over SU at MetLife Stadium on Saturday night, seen by an audience of 76,802 in person and many more watching on ABC.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAlthough the Syracuse defense came away with five turnovers, the Orange offense couldn’t do enough with them to keep up with the Fighting Irish.“It was pretty tough,” running back Prince-Tyson Gulley said of the UND defense, “but it was nothing that we couldn’t handle. We just didn’t show it, we didn’t get the job done.”After Brandon Reddish dove to intercept a ball off the ground, a false start set the Orange back. SU then punted the ball back after a scoreless first quarter, and Notre Dame scored the game’s first points on the first possession of the second half. On Syracuse’s first chance to match the Fighting Irish’s lead, a Brisly Estime false start stalled out another SU drive. A wide-open Fuller downfield turned into a 72-yard touchdown for Notre Dame on its first play of the next drive, which put Notre Dame up 14-0. Syracuse finally reached the red zone late in the second quarter. After two carries by Adonis Ameen-Moore went nowhere, right tackle Michael Lasker — filling in for an injured Ivan Foy, who never returned — pushed UND’s Romeo Okwara and was hit with a personal foul penalty that backed Syracuse outside the 30-yard line and into a third-and-33.A Terrel Hunt scramble set up a manageable field goal from walk-on freshman Cole Murphy, which slightly cut into the Fighting Irish’s lead. “You really have to focus in (in the red zone),” left tackle Sean Hickey said, “and everyone on our line has fallen victim to that. We’re all guilty of it and we need to fix it.”During SU’s first second-half possession, Hunt threw a pass off his back foot intended for Estime, who was never open. Matthias Farley picked it off and cut off another Syracuse drive that threatened to reach the red zone. Notre Dame cashed in the turnover for seven points and a 21-3 lead.Even after a 42-yard Riley Dixon run on a fake punt, the Orange turned the possession over on downs when its line couldn’t get enough push on a Hunt sneak that fell inches short of the first-down marker.“It’s frustrating,” Shafer said about his offense’s struggles. “That’s why I love football. It’s frustrating, but what the hell? Let’s go. We’ve got to move on.”The SU offense did finally reach the end zone on a Hunt 7-yard run, and the defense followed suit. Eskridge finally got his pick-six, returning an ill-advised Everett Golson pass 29 yards for a score and cutting UND’s lead to 28-15 late in the fourth quarter.But at that point, Syracuse’s shot at upstaging a national contender was gone before it could ever materialize.“It’s not a moral victory. We thought we could play with them,” Hickey said. “I think we forget pretty quick. We’re not a team that’s going to dwell on what just happened.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more


Defensive lineman Chris Slayton at the core of Syracuse’s improved defense

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Comments Published on October 16, 2017 at 2:12 pm Contact Matthew: | @MatthewGut21center_img No longer is Chris Slayton named Chris Slayton. Instead, Syracuse head coach Dino Babers calls the redshirt junior, “Three technique,” a reference to his defensive tackle position on the outside shoulder of the guard.“That’s the position he plays and he plays the position like a grown man in a grown man’s league,” Babers said Monday. “He is the key to what we do on defense.”On Clemson’s final offensive play of the first half Friday night, Tigers quarterback Kelly Bryant tried to scramble up the middle before he was wrapped up. Slayton threw him to the turf, knocking Clemson’s leading passer out of the game.Slayton spearheaded the SU (4-3, 2-1 Atlantic Coast) defense in its massive upset of the defending national champion and then-No. 2-ranked Clemson (6-1, 4-1). Syracuse held CU ball carriers, who entered Friday averaging 237.3 yards rushing per game, to 113 yards on the ground. The 6-foot-4 Slayton led SU in clogging the gaps.As a freshman in 2015, Slayton played in all 12 games. He bulked up a year ago and started all 12 games as the only returning tackle. Last year, Slayton had four sacks and tied for the team lead with 10 tackles for loss. One of his biggest contributions occurred at Connecticut, where he helped set up senior linebacker Zaire Franklin’s big goal-line stop and force a turnover on downs with about six minutes left in the 31-24 win.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAndy Mendes | Digital Design EditorFormer Syracuse defensive coordinator Chuck Bullough told The Daily Orange last year that Slayton had made a name for himself as one of the strongest players on the team. Slayton said in fall camp that a focus this year was applying more pressure to quarterbacks, which he has done.He picked up a forced fumble Sept. 9 against Middle Tennessee State and chipped in six tackles in a competitive loss at then-No. 25 LSU. Through seven games, Slayton ranks 11th on SU in total tackles with 17, but he slots in at second in tackles for loss (4.5), behind only Parris Bennett, this week’s ACC Linebacker of the Week.With fellow defensive linemen Josh Black and Kendall Coleman still out due to injury, there is an added onus on the defensive line, Slayton included. He has exceeded expectations.“He’s going to be a professional football player,” Babers said. “He’s outstanding.”Other notes from Babers’ press conference:On the No. 2 receiver battle, which remains open to Jamal Custis and Devin C. Butler: “I’m looking for a guy to take the position. Just to flat take the position.”On junior tight end Ravian Pierce, who ranks third on Syracuse in catches and has 165 receiving yards over the past two games: “It’s how people are playing us. They’re doing more things to take away (Ishmael) and Ervin (Philips), which gives other people opportunities to exploit other parts of the defense. It’s just part of the chess game.”On the Miami matchup: “You’re playing another undefeated team in the Top 10. Another storied program. We’re playing them at their place, it’s going to be a difficult game.”last_img read more
