U-P Railroad issues advisory to hunters

Ag/Outdoor, Sports

September 18th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

Officials with the Union Pacific Railroad are urging hunters to resist the temptation to hunt on railroad property this season. Wildlife will migrate and feed along the edges of freshly harvested fields, making these areas prime hunting spots. With many fields adjacent to Union Pacific tracks, hunters find it very tempting to hunt on or near the tracks.

Robert Morrison, Union Pacific Chief of Police says “Too many people have been injured or killed trespassing on railroad property over the years.” Morrison says a part of the “UP CARES” initiative, they want to remind hunters that “Walking on or near railroad tracks is extremely dangerous because you never know when a train will come along.”

Dale Bray, Union Pacific director of public safety says “It can take a mile or more to stop a train, and, by the time a locomotive engineer sees you on the track, it is too late to stop.” Bray says “Locomotives and rail cars overhang the tracks by at least three feet on either side of the rail. If you are too close to the tracks, you can be hit by the locomotive or a rail car.”

Hunters are not the only ones drawn to railroad tracks – hikers, bikers, fishermen and snowmobilers are, as well. Anyone choosing to walk on or near railroad tracks could be killed or injured by a train, and, people who enter railroad property can be arrested for violating trespassing laws.  They could serve jail time and/or have to pay a fine.

Chiefs RB Charles dings up reconstructed knee

Sports

September 18th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles dinged up the same knee that needed reconstructive surgery last season during Sunday’s 35-17 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Charles, who tore his left ACL in Week 2, carried only six times for three yards against the Bills. He could be seen riding a bike on the sideline and asking to play the rest of the game. Kansas City coach Romeo Crennel said Monday that the decision was made to rest Charles, who has yet to show the same burst that carried him to more than 1,400 yards rushing in 2010. Crennel said he expects Charles to be ready for Sunday’s game at New Orleans, another team that is winless through its first two games.

Cardinals beat Dodgers 5-2 with 3-run 12th

Sports

September 17th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jon Jay hit a go-ahead RBI double during a three-run 12th inning and the St. Louis Cardinals split of a four-game series against the Los Angeles Dodgers, beating them 5-2 on Sunday and regaining undisputed possession of the second NL wild card spot. John Ely (0-2) issued a leadoff walk to Matt Carpenter and Jay drove him on from second base with a line drive into the right field corner on an 0-2 pitch. Jay scored on an infield hit up the middle by Allen Craig and Yadier Molina walked with the bases loaded. Rookie Shelby Miller (1-0) pitched one inning for his first major league victory.

Spiller sparks Bills’ 35-17 rout over Chiefs

Sports

September 16th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) – C.J. Spiller scored twice and had 123 yards rushing in sparking the Buffalo Bills’ 35-17 rout over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.  Ryan Fitzpatrick threw two touchdown passes, including a 49-yarder to Stevie Johnson, and Leodis McKelvin scored on an 88-yard punt return – the second longest in team history – in the Bills’ home opener. Buffalo’s high-priced defense had five sacks and forced three turnovers as the Bills bounced back from a dreadful season-opening 48-28 loss at the New York Jets last week. Dwayne Bowe scored both touchdowns for Kansas City, both coming in the final seven minutes to make the score respectable. Coming off a 40-24 loss at Atlanta, the Chiefs opened a season 0-2 for the sixth time in seven years.

Iowa State rolls past Western Illinois 37-3

Sports

September 16th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Steele Jantz threw three touchdown passes and James White ran 56 yards for another score, leading Iowa State to a 37-3 victory over Western Illinois on Saturday night. Penalties and turnovers frustrated Iowa State at times, but the Cyclones still had enough to overpower their FCS opponent and start 3-0 for the second straight year and sixth time since 1981. Four of the five previous 3-0 starts led to bowl appearances. Jantz completed 19 of 26 passes for 209 yards, with touchdown throws of 16 and 5 yards to Chris Young and 22 yards to Aaron Horne. He was intercepted once and lost a fumble. Western Illinois (2-1) trailed 31-0 before Pat Smith kicked a 26-yard field goal in the first minute of the fourth quarter. Iowa State was playing its second-team defense by then.
