US Coast Guard urges those providing relief to take caution before heading to the Bahamas

first_imgWhile the US Coast Guard is extremely grateful for all the support from individuals and agencies who would like to lend a helping hand in the Bahamas, they are also issuing caution to those who are planning to make the trip themselves to deliver food and aid.Chris Haarer, the USCG auxiliary division commander wants the public to consider the facts before making the trip so that those who decide to go, don’t end up needing aid themselves:“Not only will there be no gas, but there’s no lodging, no food, no electricity, there’s probably very limited cell coverage,” said Haarer.“We certainly would like to discourage this and have everyone think ahead just think about all the destruction that’s taken place and what’s not available to the general citizen as they go over there,” Haarer continued.While the Coast Guard says they can not prevent people from going over to the Bahamas at this time, they did recommend that those who are considering making the trip, also check to make sure they will have all they need when they get there, including safety materials, a contact, food, water, and extra gas.If you can not insure these measures for yourself, consider donating to another agency such as FEMA, The RedCross, or Walpol who each have set ups in the area.Officials say they have also increased inspections for boats coming into inlets along the Florida Florida specifically checking for those attempting to relocate Bahamians without proper documentation.For more on safety tips and requirements contact the US Coast Guard via (305)415-6869.last_img read more

(AP Photo/Akron Beacon Journal, Michael Chritton)CLEVELAND (AP) — LeBron James isn’t ready to let his two sons strap on shoulder pads and a helmet just yet.The NBA superstar doesn’t want his boys, LeBron Jr. and Bryce, to play organized football because of safety concerns. He hasn’t ruled them out playing the sport in the future, but for now he’s insisting they stay off the field.“We don’t want them to play in our household right now until they understand how physical and how body demanding the game is,” James said following practice on Thursday. “Then they can have their choice in high school, we’ll talk over it. But right now there’s no need for it. There’s enough sports they can play. They play basketball, they play soccer, they play everything else but football and hockey.”James told ESPN.com (http://es.pn/11jvDtB) last week while the Cavaliers were in Denver that that he didn’t want his sons playing football because of the sport’s dangers. He’s made similar comments in the past to the Associated Press.“It’s a safety thing,” he said Thursday. “As a parent you protect your kids as much as possible. I don’t think I’m the only one that’s not allowing his kids to play football, it’s just that I’m LeBron James and it gets put in the headlines for no reason.”James often refers to himself as a football player when talking about making physical plays. He’s also a big football fan, and closely follows the Dallas Cowboys, Browns and Ohio State.The 6-foot-8 James was an All-Ohio wide receiver at Akron’s St. Vincent-St. Mary High School. This summer, he brought his boys to the Browns’ training camp, where they played catch on a side field as the team worked out.Before he concentrated on basketball, James said football provided a possible avenue for him to escape the inner city.“I needed a way out,” he said. “My kids don’t need a way out. They’re all right. I needed a way out when I was a kid. I tried to do whatever it took to get out. That’s my excuse.”last_img read more

Matt Saal, Oct. 12

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We have had a couple of showers. It has been a nice fall for getting stuff done. The rain definitely helped the wheat and the triticale that has been planted. We got most of our manure out. We still have a little bit to go and we will probably finish that up this week. We’ll have a little bit of tillage to do this week too.All the beans are off and pretty much all of the corn is done. The beans averaged around 39 bushels per acre. Everything is getting wrapped up early. With weather like this we don’t have to worry about getting stuck and we don’t have to worry about it being cold and wet.The triticale is looking really good. We chop it in the spring, put a little liquid manure on it and go right into corn. We have been doing that on a smaller scale for a couple of years. We try to chop and plant in the first or second week of May. I am still experimenting with the best way to plant the corn in that situation. We have tried no-till, strip-till and an AerWay after the triticale comes off. This year the strip-till worked best.We manage manure pretty intensely so we do not get into a problem. We try to stay on top of it. We had some wheat out this year so we only had to get from May until July with our manure storage. Really, the winter is the most difficult time to manage the manure. We basically can’t haul until the springtime again.We finished planting wheat a week ago Friday and it got a tenth or two of rain on it so far. Our fourth cutting was light but it will be good quality.last_img read more
