UWF Baseball Takes Home Opener Against Mobile 6-4

first_img #1 Tampa 2/12/2016 – 6 p.m. CT Watch Live February 9, 2015 BOX SCORE: PDF | HTML PENSACOLA, Fla. – Ladeavon Matthews hit his Gulf South Conference-leading third home run of the season while Robert Lopez hit his first career home run as the University of West Florida baseball team defeated the University of Mobile by a score of 6-4 on Tuesday evening at Jim Spooner Field. Troy Brown was called upon to make his first collegiate start for West Florida as the freshman threw three innings and only surrendered one run on two hits against the Rams. Brown did experience some control issues in the second, walking three consecutive batters, however the Lakeland native was able to finish strong and get out of the inning only allowing one run. West Florida started its scoring right away, as a first and third double steal worked successfully for the Argonauts when Matthews took off for second base and Nic Strasser was able to swipe home on the throw down in the first inning. Jarrod Petree took over on the hill in the fourth and struggled to start with walking his first two batters. Mobile briefly took a 2-1 lead, however Petree was able to finish the inning strong and leave two Mobile runners on base. Petree would go on to pitch the fifth and sixth and ended his outing retiring nine consecutive batters. UWF put on strong offensive showings in the fifth and sixth, with the Matthews three-run blast coming in the fifth and Lopez’s two run homer coming in the sixth to give West Florida a 6-2 lead. Mobile was able to chip away with a pair of runs in the eighth but the rally attempt was halted when Sean Kennedy was able to get the last out of the eighth inning. “It was a good win, especially for our home opener,” said UWF head baseball coach Mike Jeffcoat. “Petree and Brown showed resilience, they pitched themselves into some jams and they were able to work out of it. We had bright spots offensively, Robert Lopez hit his first home run, Ladeavon (Matthews) hit a big home run for us that helped us on the offensive end tonight and I’m happy for the win here tonight.” Offensively, Strasser continued his hot start to the 2016 season with a 2-for-4 performance with a pair of stolen bases and runs scored. Three other Argonauts, including Matthews, Justin Ambrosino and Michael Savas posted multi-hit days as the Argos tallied 12 in the Tuesday night contest. UWF batted .342 as a team on Tuesday night while holding Mobile to only four hits and a .133 average. Petree was credited with the win on the mound for UWF after posting three innings of no-hit relief and striking out four. Josh McLaney was credited with his first save of the season, while Garrett Peek made his 2016 debut going 1.2 innings and surrendering one run on two hits. UWF now looks towards a pivotal nonconference series against the defending NCAA Division II National Champion Tampa Spartans. UWF and Tampa will play one game each on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with first pitch from Jim Spooner Field slated for 6:00 p.m. on Friday. Brandon Nagem is expected to start on the mound for the Argonauts on Friday. — GoArgos.com —  Print Friendly Version Live Stats Preview Full Schedule Roster Next Game:last_img read more

Daylight Saving Time Begins This Sunday

first_imgOne popular myth about Daylight Saving Time is that it was implemented to help farmers, but the 1996 Act which made DST official was actually supported primarily by retailers who saw an increase in sales when laborer had an extra hour of sunshine after work. Farmers largely opposed the change, because it gave them fewer hours to get their produce to market in the mornings. In the United States, 2am was chosen for the hour change because it is believed to be the most practical and least disruptive for businesses and travelers. Most bars have finished serving alcohol by that time and it is late enough to avoid changing back and forth between different dates. FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Daylight Saving Time starts again this Sunday at 2am, shifting an an hour of daylight from the morning to the evening. Set your clocks forward one hour to 3am in order to “spring forward” to Daylight Saving Time.center_img The golfing and barbecuing lobbies are now the most significant supporters of the time change, according to Professor Michael Downing, the author of ‘Spring Forward: The Annual Madness of Daylight Saving Time.’last_img read more

Facility In Cook Inlet Sold In Order To Truck LNG To Fairbanks

first_imgFacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority board of directors unanimously approved a financing plan to sell a liquified natural gas facility in the Cook Inlet as part of a plan to truck LNG to Fairbanks. The gas contract is for 3-years, which starts January 1. Construction on the LNG storage, plant expansion, and other components should allow for more natural gas to flow to Fairbanks in 2020. The agreement with Hilcorp would secure a long-term supply of Cook Inlet Natural Gas. The goal is to bring cheaper energy to about 8,900 customers in the Fairbanks area. The $331.2 million financing plan would sell the asset in the Cook Inlet to the Fairbanks North Star Borough’s interior gas utility.center_img Details of the plan include the sale of Fairbanks Natural Gas and its Titan LNG plant on Point MacKenzie, as well as passing of the gas supply contract AIDEA secured with Hilcorp Energy, in September.

Op-Ed: Domestic Violence Will Never Be Tolerated

first_imgForty-five years?Ridiculous. To my colleague, who bravely and selflessly shared his own personal and real time story and trauma of domestic violence – thank you.  To every survivor who marches, lobbies, writes letters, shares their story and takes it steps further by fighting in communities to across the state to keep yourselves and your neighbors safe – thank you.  You matter.  YOU matter.  Let’s work together, every community, every group, every neighborhood, every person, to make it clear that domestic violence will never be tolerated. Only last week I was startled awake after 3 a.m. by a house-rattling “bang!” It was him. He was in the hallway outside my closed bedroom door, beating my mother. My mother screamed and, smothered by darkness and too terrified to move I cowered beneath my blankets, trembling as I had so many times more than 45 years before. He is the monster under my bed, saboteur of my dreams. His résumé includes schoolteacher, felon and, more recently, retired country “gentleman.” He is a specter of my past, a stalker who lurks within waiting to spring into view and set my heart pounding. He is the Devil at my doorstep, progenitor of my greatest fears. Most poignantly, though, his blood is my own. He is my father. That is how a colleague of mine— a professionally successful and well-regarded associate, and a middle-aged survivor of domestic violence— described a recent nightmare. Similar frightening dreams, once common, haunt him less frequently now, he says. But the scars remain. And the horrors reflected above, along with others far worse, will remain with him – and his mother, and his sister – forever. Healing from domestic violence is a lifelong endeavor. Changing societal acceptance in Alaska requires collaborative partnerships. The real actions needed are more efforts with a targeted eye on supporting victims and keeping Alaskans safe. Under this administration, the following partnerships and actions are underway:More federal funds than ever before have been awarded by Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault (CDVSA), a council within DPS, to 26 emergency shelter and victim services programs throughout Alaska, from Emmonak, to Craig, to Kotzebue, to Nome and moreNew funding is being released from the CDVSA to support Child Advocacy Centers, trauma informed child victim mental health and legal support services$6 million will be released to rural communities by DPS in partnership with the federal government to improve public safety infrastructure like holding facilities, office space for peace officersMore troopers hired in the last ten months than has been brought on during hiring cycles for more than a decade (DPS anticipates even more troopers, another 50, will be hired in calendar year 2020)Laws to protect victims and hold offenders accountable were passed, and a repeal of the catch and release, offender friendly SB 91 was finally realized.All backlogged sexual assault kits, including those collected decades ago, will be processed by September 2021A prosecutor and an investigator dedicated to cold cases have been hired to bring justice to families related to the previously unprocessed sexual assault kitsIn the last nine months, three arrests were made in conjunction to decades old missing/murdered cases in which the victims were women The impulse is to sneer and shout: Let it go already! Take responsibility for your life and move on, for Christ’s sake. Stop blaming your father. Be a man. Perhaps those jeers are his; the voice delivering them, after all, sounds familiar. But the fear is imbedded deeply within, like a virus. And it’s not going away. Ever. The heart-racing terror I felt in the wee hours last Tuesday was as sheer and stark as any imaginable. The roars and screams, the breaking glass and panic of decades ago were not nightmares. They were real. These survivors are the walking wounded of an undercurrent that spans all cultures and corners of our society. There is no community, gender, nor race spared. The ripple effects may crippling and long-lasting. Children who witness or experience violence in their homes are at a higher risk of substance abuse, incarceration, depression, health issues, and suicide. Physical, verbal, and emotional abuse in domestic relationships is endemic to Alaska – our cities, suburbs, and rural areas – and prevalent nationwide. Each year, millions of Americans are threatened, beaten, or sexually assaulted in their own homes by family members or domestic partners. Victims include women (59 percent of adult women in Alaska experience intimate partner or sexual violence in their lifetimes[1]), children (nationally, 1 in 15 children are exposed to intimate partner violence each year, and 90 percent of them are eyewitnesses to this violence[2]), and men (1 in 4 men nationwide have experienced some form of physical violence by an intimate partner[3]). Despite this great work underway, there is so much more to be done. Let’s make this October, which Gov. Dunleavy proclaimed as Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the beginning of a new age. The challenges Alaska faces are real but not insurmountable. Often, well intended words are spoken or put to paper that talk about changing the societal acceptance, ending domestic violence, and supporting survivors.  The question is, how can we halt a blight that has smoldered behind closed doors for decades?

MSU’s Prescott talks first impression of Kelly

first_imgOle Miss transfer quarterback Chad Kelly is fighting to be named the starter this season, and likely has the edge in athleticism.Ole Miss transfer quarterback Chad Kelly is fighting to be named the starter this season, and likely has the edge in athleticism.HOOVER, Ala. – Dak Prescott spent three days competing alongside Chad Kelly at the Manning Passing Academy this weekend.The Mississippi State quarterback isn’t about to dub his Ole Miss counterpart a changed man or his best friend, but he’s not about to call Kelly his nemesis either.That’s because Prescott, who faced throngs of reporters Tuesday at SEC Media Days, says he honestly doesn’t know Kelly.“It’s hard just to get to know a person in just a few days. I think anybody can put on a fake for three days. I’m not going to say he was doing so,” Prescott said. “But I’m not going to sit here and try to judge him or try to tell you how I feel about his personality, because honestly I don’t know him. I feel like he’s a good guy. He’s doing the things he needs to do.”Prescott did say, however, that he thought Kelly could “spin” the football pretty well from what he saw during the different drills in Thibodaux, Louisiana.They’re two quarterbacks in two very different situations.Kelly, who transferred to Ole Miss from junior college this winter, is in the middle of a three-headed quarterback competition. He’s also working to change his story as the ultra-promising prospect who simply couldn’t stay out of trouble.Prescott enters the season as the conference’s top returning quarterback after setting 12 school records last fall.Contact Riley Blevins at rblevins@jackson.gannett.com.

Postmark La Follette hosts documentary viewing

first_img(Left to right) Anaia Roberts, Aleeyah Roberts, Ayiana Roberts, Patrician Goins and Jordan Heatherly.  Students not pictured:  Lucianna Cole and Keola Morton.LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – Postmark La Follette hosted the premier viewing of the Smithsonian Institute Traveling Exhibition Service Program Stories: Yes.   There were seven students of varying ages who spent the five Saturdays in February learning the base structure of preparing and making a video presentation. Each student received a “Postie” for the  work they did.   La Follette native Gabe Crutchfield, who is an editor with WBIR, was the glue that held this together with his knowledge and editing capabilities.  Crutchfield spent eight hours on the final edit of the interviews.This project was to focus on a variety of Campbell Countians of all age groups and delve into a series of questions to discover the differences in the way they grew up in Campbell County, their education experiences and who they are.  The mentors only gave them guidance as to these specific areas.  These young people took the ball and ran with it.  They listened, and they asked pertinent questions based on the responses from those being interviewed.  It was evident in the result.More than eight hours of video interviews were tuned into the education area of the community for this event.  Postmark will continue using the individual interviews that were videotaped in the upcoming Round Table Discussion.  Bradley Smiddy will be the project director for this event. A date of when this will start will be announced later.  The interviews will continue to be used in a variety of ways to share with the community.The final video presentation will be sent to the Smithsonian by the end of the month and then be posted on Postmark La Follette and WLAF’s Youtube channels.   (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 03/18/2020-6AM)Share this:FacebookTwitterlast_img read more
