Hosmer, Perez lift AL to 4-2 All-Star win, Series home field

Sports

July 13th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Eric Hosmer and Salvador Perez made sure the Kansas City Royals will start at home, sweet, home if they get a chance to defend their World Series title. The Royals duo homered off former Kansas City teammate Johnny Cueto during a six-pitch span in the second inning, Hosmer added an RBI single and the American League beat the Nationals 4-2 Tuesday night for their fourth straight win in the All-Star game.

David Ortiz found himself in the middle of the most touching moment at Petco Park, embraced by his AL teammates near first base after exiting his final All-Star Game. The popular Big Papi plans to retire at 40 after this season with Boston.

Kris Bryant of the Cubs led the parade of sparkling young talent with a first-inning home run. Dellin Betances flashed his 100 mph heat and Astros reliever Will Harris came on to throw a called third strike past Cardinals rookie Aledmys Diaz on a 3-2 pitch on the outside corner with the bases loaded to end the eighth.

 

Family sues Kansas City Chiefs over fan’s beating death

Sports

July 12th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – The family of a Missouri man fatally beaten in 2013 outside of Arrowhead Stadium, home of the Kansas City Chiefs, is suing the NFL franchise. The Kansas City Star reports the wrongful-death lawsuit was filed Monday in Jackson County on behalf of Kyle Van Winkle’s widow and his son, who was just weeks old when Van Winkle died.

Seeking unspecified damages, the lawsuit blames a lack of adequate security in the parking lot at the time Van Winkle was beaten during an altercation. The law firm behind the lawsuit says the lawsuit’s goal is to make Arrowhead safer for fans. The Chiefs have declined to comment.  Joshua Bradley of Independence has pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in Van Winkle’s death and is serving five years of probation.

Tips for when you want to cruise Iowa’s rivers from the DNR

Ag/Outdoor, News, Sports

July 12th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

Swimming, canoeing and floating the river on tubes is a summertime tradition in Iowa. But as relaxing and enjoyable as a river float is, it does come with an element of risk.
Iowa rivers are dynamic systems in a constant state of change and can hide obstacles just beneath the water surface. Todd Robertson, with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources Water Trails Program, said river users can enjoy the scenery while keeping an eye downstream to avoid any hazardous surprises.

images“We’ve had some reports of trees being blown over during the recent storms and blocking parts of different rivers. We would encourage paddlers and tubers to watch for fallen trees and other hazards that can pull you in and suck you under the water,” he said.  “This is the busy season for floating our rivers. When we have consistent hot weather, there is an increase in the number of paddlers and tubers and we want everyone to be mindful that our rivers are in a constant state of change.”

  • Robertson said there are a few tips to keep you safe on the river.
    Wear your life jacket: Life jackets, when properly fastened and cinched, have saved lives. Life jackets are mandatory for any child under 13 in any vessel underway in the state of Iowa.
  • Know the weather forecast: Always get off the water if lightening is in the area.
  • Recognize and avoid hazards: Most water incidents involve an obstruction – downed trees and branches create a “strainer” effect that can trap boats and people under water, sometimes leading to drowning. A bridge pier or boulder can get a boat pinned on its upstream side. Low-head dams can re-circulate, trap and drown victims. These hazards are most difficult to avoid at mid to high range flows.
  • Consider your experience: Novice paddlers and tubers generally have less control as rivers get swifter, and should factor in more caution.
  • Beat the heat: Dehydration, heat exhaustion stroke, and heat exhaustion can become serious problems in by mid-summer. Bring plenty of water on river trips, cool off periodically by getting yourself wet or swimming, use sunscreen, and for tubing or paddling trips make sure to choose shorter trips when the river’s flow is low.
  • Set the example for your kids: Be vigilant with kids in rivers, make sure they wear their life jackets before getting in the water, and explain to them the other safety points on this list.
  • Watch your kids: Even with a life jacket, be aware of common river hazards, and keep a watchful eye on kids in a river at all times, to help them avoid hazards such as woody debris and other objects, or low-head dams.
  • Other factors: You can improve your odds by not consuming alcohol, considering weather factors, and being vigilant about what’s around the next bend.

Atlantic heads to first ever State Softball Tournament

Sports

July 12th, 2016 by Chris Parks

The Atlantic Softball team gets to play in the State Tournament for the first time in the program’s 44 year history after a 2-1 win over Kuemper Catholic in Carroll on Monday night.

The Trojans got another strong performance from Ally Anderson in the pitching circle allowing just the 1 run on 6 hits with no walks and two strikeouts.  Head Coach Terry Hinzman said they dodged a few bullets throughout the night with runners on base but that was a credit to Ally placing her pitches well in the tough moments and the team playing good defense.  The teams traded runs in the second inning and Atlantic got the winning run in the bottom of the 6th.  With two youngsters on base Junior Gabby Jordahl stepped up and put a ball in play that forced Kuemper to attempt a double play that didn’t work out and allowed McKenzie Waters to cross the plate for what turned out to be the winner.  Ally Anderson took down the first three batters in the 7th to seal the win.

8th year Head Coach Hinzmann said it was a big win for the team and the program. He said it’s a credit to everyone that has contributed to the program over the years and he’s looking forward to see what they can do at State.
