Soaring Eagle squeak by on last-second kick
Salt Lake Tribune, United States
The second one hit the post and bounced harmlessly to the Rice-Eccles Stadium turf. The third? That one was blocked. Twice Juan Diego drove inside the Hurricane 10-yard line and twice the Soaring Eagle went for it on fourth down rather than let Bentrude kick. Indeed, Friday’s Class 3A title game was a tough one for the baby-faced Juan Diego kicker. But if the junior almost cost his team a championship and unbeaten season with his misses, he made up for the mishaps when it truly counted. Bentrude’s 22-yard field goal with four seconds remaining lifted Juan Diego to a 21-18 win over Hurricane in a riveting matchup Friday morning. The kick was wobbly.
Windsor hits 6-month mark in tornado recovery
The Coloradoan, CO
Martens said the way the storm hit was, in many ways, a blessing for Windsor. “We were very, very lucky that we weren’t dealing with structure fires or explosions right away,” Martens said. “The hail that hit before the tornado had also given the schools time to get all the kids inside. “It could have been a lot worse. “Vazquez couldn’t offer enough praise to the community for the way it responded. “When I was touring that neighborhood in May, I remember thinking that lying at my feet were a lifetime of memories for so many families,” he said. “It’s hard to put into words what it felt like that day.
Hurricane Ike causes lag in justice system
Galveston County Daily News, TX
The trial of Ronald Lloyd Kenney – charged with intoxication manslaughter in connection with the August 2006 death of Daniel Gonzales III, who had cerebral palsy – was scheduled for Sept. But as Hurricane Ike barreled down on the Gulf Coast, Kennedy’s trial was rescheduled. 13, the hurricane slammed into Galveston, flooding 75 percent of the island’s homes and businesses and bringing court operations to a near halt. Now Kennedy’s trial has been rescheduled again – this time in December – partly because his defense attorney’s records were wiped out in the floodwaters, according to the Galveston County District Attorney’s Office. Kennedy’s attorney, Kevin Rekoff, declined to comment.
Volcano erupts in Nicaragua with small quakes
The Associated Press
The institute says Saturday’s eruptions pose no imminent threat to the surrounding population. The 5725-foot (1,745-meter) volcano is about 70 miles (110 kilometers) west of the capital, Managua. It neighbors the Casitas volcano, whose lake burst open during Hurricane Mitch in 1998. Some 2,000 people were killed. All rights reserved.
Golden Hurricane downs UMKC
Tulsa World, OK
It was worth the wait. The chants of “Jose, Jose, Jose, Jose” were let out from the 350 or so freezing University of Tulsa soccer fans and cut through the cold, crisp air Friday night. It was a chant the Golden Hurricane soccer supporters had been waiting all night to let loose. Jose Parada finally converted one of the numerous TU scoring chances with just over 10 minutes remaining to give fifth-ranked TU a 1-0 victory over UMKC in the opening round of the NCAA Men’s Soccer Tournament at the Hurricane Soccer and Track Stadium. “We just wanted to keep them constantly pressured,” TU coach Tom McIntosh said. “Even though we missed some of those chances and their goalkeeper kept coming up with big saves, I thought eventually we’d get our goal. ”
TU’s triumph established a new single-season win total with 16 and advanced the Hurricane to a round of 32 match at No.
Government investigating Ike worker complaints
Houston Chronicle, United States
“They, basically, just lied and manipulated everybody to the end. Under federal rules, laborers are supposed to get weekly pay, plus any overtime, for wages based on the job performed. The blue roof program is designed to provide temporary repairs for people whose roofs were damaged by the hurricane. Mike DeMasi, deputy director for project management in Corps’ Galveston office, said federal officials have heard complaints that worker rules were violated and that contractors were not withholding taxes as required. “We’ve heard a lot of those stories,” DeMasi said. “It’s unfortunate that these things happened. The Corps notified the Labor Department, which confirmed an investigation was under way but otherwise declined comment.

EMTs Tested In Mock Tornado Response
– A mock tornado tore through the Creighton University campus on Saturday as part of a disaster drill competition that brought emergency crews from all over the country. “They throw a lot of different stuff at you that you don’t get to see every day, so it’s a good experience,” said Ben Burbridge, of American Medical Response. Emergency medical technician students and competitors simulated a disaster to practice how they would treat injured patients.
