Attorney to conduct independent investigation into alleged hazing incident

News, Sports

January 16th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — An attorney representing three alleged victims of a reported sexual assault involving the wrestling team at Nodaway Valley High School in Greenfield says he wants an independent investigation. Two members of the wrestling team were arrested last week. Eighteen-year-old Mikel Anthony Feick and 17-year-old Jacob Wayne Schliessman, both of Greenfield, are charged with second-degree sexual abuse.  Fieck has been released from the Adair County Jail in Greenfield, on $25,000 bond. Schliessman plead not guilty to the offense last Friday, and has waived his preliminary hearing. He’s scheduled to appear in court Thursday morning (Jan. 19th). Schliessman is currently being held on $25,000 bond at the Juvenile Detention facility in Edlora.

Attorney Martin Fisher, of Adair said Monday, that he’s hiring the Critelli law firm in Des Moines to investigate the allegations. Police say the alleged assault occurred on Dec. 19th in the high school’s wrestling room. Local law enforcement and the school district are also investigating.

Iowa meat lockers overloaded with venison as deer hunting season ends

Ag/Outdoor, Sports

January 16th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

Iowa has more than 80 custom meat lockers that process farm-raised pork and beef, but at this time of year, they’re busy with another type of meat — venison. John Lawrence, a livestock specialist at the Iowa State University extension, says many consumers are turning to venison as the costs of more traditional meat products rise. He says as venison grows in popularity, it’s keeping many small town facilities busy. Lawrence says, “Particularly at this time of year, we think about deer season and the number of deer that are processed through these small plants to the point that if I wanted to have a hog butchered to put in my freezer, I might have to wait until February to get it in because they’re processing the deer from hunting season.” Although there’s nearly one of these processing facilities per county, many struggle to pay a competitive wage while at the same time being large enough to support any family members who may eventually take over. Lawrence says while these facilities have plenty of work for the next few weeks, it’s sometimes a struggle the rest of the year.

He says, “Many of those same business challenges we see in agriculture and up and down Main Street, and if we aren’t able to bridge those gaps and solve those problems, we see a lot of those smaller, family-owned businesses go by the wayside.” Lawrence says in some cases, the custom processor brings more business into town when people come to pick up their meat. According to the Iowa Department of Agriculture’s website, the state has 83 custom meat lockers, with another 38 state-inspected facilities.

Iowa AD: Coach’s Chair Slamming Crossed the Line

Sports

January 16th, 2012 by Jim Field

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa’s athletic director says coach Fran McCaffery went too far when he slammed a chair during last week’s 95-61 loss at Michigan State.

Gary Barta said Monday he supports the second-year coach and loves his passion for the game. But he said it’s important that “his passion doesn’t cross a line that distracts from our greater goals” and that’s what happened last week.

Barta said he’s spoken with the Big Ten Conference and McCaffery and “from all three perspectives, last week’s incident is done.”

The outburst started when McCaffery was whistled for a technical foul. During the break, he picked up the chair and slammed it to the court while yelling at his players. Video of his actions spread.

McCaffery said last week he had no regrets or apologies.

January 16th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

PEORIA, Ill. (AP) — Dyricus Simms-Edwards had 26 points and Taylor Brown scored 23 as Bradley snapped a nine-game losing streak with a 78-67 victory over Northern Iowa on Sunday. Walt Lemon Jr. added 16 points for the Braves (6-13, 1-6 Missouri Valley), who overcame a 16-point second-half deficit to win for the first time since Dec. 15. Johnny Moran and Chip Rank scored 15 points apiece for Northern Iowa (13-6, 3-4), while Jake Koch and Anthony James each had 11. Bradley, trailing 44-28 early in the second half, went on a 20-3 run that was capped by Brown’s dunk and put the Braves ahead 48-47 with 10:57 remaining. The game remained close until Simms-Edwards hit a 3-pointer with 2:17 left to break a 65-65 tie, and the Braves hit 10 of 12 free throws down the stretch to secure the victory.
