first_imgGwyneth Blair. (Image: Facebook)GREENSBURG – An 8-year-old girl is recovering after being struck by a pickup truck and her family says her courageous actions may have saved her uncle’s life.According to the Greensburg Daily News, a van driven by Mary Tichenor, 52, of Rushville, lost power to the brakes and rolled through a stop sign at the Washington and Ireland Street intersection Tuesday afternoon.Tichenor was unable to stop and struck a Chevy Pickup truck operated by Daniel Tempest, 56, of Greensburg.The impact forced the pickup onto the sidewalk on Ireland Street where Gwyneth Blair, 8, of Greensburg, and her uncle Hershel Blair, 26, were walking.Hershel has a shunt in his head and any head trauma could likely turn fatal, the newspaper reported.Gwyneth pushed her uncle out of harm’s way before being struck by the oncoming vehicle.

I just feel like, honestly, she’s a brave little girl,” Franklin said. “I don’t know what you call a hero honestly. Heroes come in all shapes and forms. She is definitely her uncle’s hero today.”“I just feel God has a bigger plan for her. If this is any indication of what she going to be like when she grows older I feel God has something really big planned for her.”Neither driver was cited in relation to the accident however, Tempest was cited for driving while suspended, according to the newspaper.last_img read more

Women’s hockey Border Battle just as competive despite lack of history

first_imgSenior forward Jasmine Giles and the rest of the Wisconsin women\’s hockey team is excited for another shot at Border Battle rival Minnesota.[/media-credit]No matter what sport it may be, a border battle between Wisconsin and Minnesota will always be considered a marquee matchup.In women’s hockey though, the Wisconsin-Minnesota rivalry has consistently featured some of the highest quality of play in the sport year in and year out. At least one of the teams has been featured in the NCAA championship game in each of the last six years.Interim head coach Tracey DeKeyser, who has been a part of the Wisconsin program since its inception in 1999, relishes in the rivalry’s intense, yet highly respectful atmosphere, which will reignite this weekend in the regular season finale.“It’s been a long-lived border battle since my start here in ’99,” DeKeyser said. “It’s always fun, it’s a friendly rivalry and our coaching staffs are very respectful. We enjoy playing each other — it’s usually a clean, fast-paced hockey game.”At 11 years, it may not be as old as other classic sporting rivalries, but since the two teams have often ended the other’s season, it has made up for age with high stakes.After the program’s beginning in 1999, the Badgers spent six years hurriedly catching up to the established Gophers program. For that time period, Wisconsin struggled to overthrow a Minnesota team that won national championships in both 2004 and 2005.After Minnesota’s second championship, however, a role reversal occurred and Wisconsin quickly became a thorn in Minnesota’s side. The 2005-06 season marked the arrival of Wisconsin as a women’s hockey powerhouse.In November of that season, the Badgers claimed their first series sweep against their neighbors and the momentum snowballed from there.The two teams met again in the WCHA championship in February, which Wisconsin won 4-1; later in March it was much the same story when the Badgers won their first national championship, casting down the Gophers in a 3-0 victory.“I think the favorite memory for most Badgers would be the first NCAA win in the Minnesota backyard,” DeKeyser said. “We won at Mariucci Arena for our first national title and it was just sweet justice. There were so many losses in the past.“And I say that in a friendly way, because they’re a great program and I respect what they’re doing up there.”Over the next three years, the Badgers would eliminate the Gophers from the WCHA playoffs three times, plus once more in the quarterfinals of the NCAA tournament.The latter is a game remembered vividly by junior forward Kelly Nash, who tallied a goal in the 3-2 overtime victory.“We went into overtime and it was intense,” she said. “We were all nervous in the locker room, we didn’t know that it was going to go that far but we scored right away. I’d say that was my favorite (memory playing Minnesota) because it meant a lot to our team to beat them, especially at that time.”Another chapter will be added to that history this weekend, and once again, the stakes are high.Wisconsin needs success to lock up a top-four finish in the WCHA and better their chances at an NCAA tournament birth, while Minnesota intends to seal up their first place position in the conference.The stage is set once again.To have such an important game come down to a road trip to the house of a big rival might seem like a nightmare for most teams, but not for the Badgers. Minnesota’s Ridder Arena is exactly where Wisconsin has won many postseason games against the Gophers, which has only amplified the rivalry even more.“I love playing there, it’s almost like playing at home,” senior captain Jasmine Giles said. “It always has a great attendance, and even though the crowd is cheering against us, it pumps us up that much more to play well.”There is little doubt the upcoming regular season finale will affect the postseason of both teams. Regardless of the outcome, it’s hard to imagine it will be the last time the two teams will see each other this season.“It always comes down to ‘see you in the playoffs, see you in the quarterfinals, NCAA Frozen Four,’” DeKeyser said. “Usually in the months of February and March we see the Gophers a lot.”last_img read more

Trojan secondary coach resigns in wake of reports

first_imgUSC secondary coach Willie Mack Garza has resigned, citing personal issues, the school announced Thursday.“I stepped down today from my coaching duties at USC,” Garza said in a statement. “I have some personal issues unrelated to USC that I need to address. I wish the Trojans the best and I am sorry I won’t be with them in what I know will be a very successful season.”Garza was not at USC’s mid-morning practice early Thursday, while it was in the midst of final preparations for Saturday’s season opener against Minnesota.Though the school declined to comment further, multiple reports released Thursday, including one from CBS Sports, said Garza’s resignation from his position directly stemmed from his involvement in an NCAA investigation centering on former scout Willie Lyles.Lyles, along with his lawyers, met with NCAA investigators Tuesday, when he disclosed that he had a previous working relationship with Garza. USC officials learned of Lyles’ connection to Garza on Wednesday, according to CBS Sports.The NCAA’s investigation of Lyles’ scouting services, which are allegedly connected to LSU and Oregon, is still ongoing.Serving as the defensive backs coach at Tennessee during the 2009 season, Garza arrived at USC along with coach Lane Kiffin, who accepted the position in January 2010.Garza’s relationship with Lyles, however, is said to predate his time at Tennessee.Former USC safety Sammy Knight, who played in the NFL for 12 seasons and has been on staff as graduate assistant, is expected to replace Garza on an interim basis.last_img read more

Iowa delegation reaction to president’s Oval Office speech

first_imgWASHINGTON — Members of Iowa’s congressional delegation say it’s time to end the partial government shut-down, but their responses to President Trump’s Oval Office address vary, based on their political affiliation.Republican Senator Joni Ernst said Democrats in congress “are playing games with the safety and security of each and every town in America.” In a written statement issued Tuesday night, Ernst said a wall will not only protect the southern borner, but prevent human trafficking and the transport of illegal weapons and drugs.Iowa Congressman Dave Loebsack, a Democrat from Iowa City, said the president seems obsessed with what Loebsack describes as “an expensive and ineffective wall.” Loebsack issued a written statement Tuesday night, saying it’s time for congress to stop “the bickering” and pass a bill that includes border security measures along with reform of the country’s broken immigration system.last_img read more
