first_img(File Photo)INDIANAPOLIS – More than a million dollars in federal aid has been provided to the state to assist local and state government and public service organizations recover from the January snowstorm.“Dollars are beginning to flow to replenish local and state government,” said Governor Mike Pence. “While it will take months for the federal accounting process to be complete and provide funds to the 30 counties that qualified for assistance, this year that started with a rough winter is looking a bit brighter today.”There are no Southeastern Indiana counties that have received support but state officials say more money will be distributed as applications are processed.  In all, 30 counties were granted federal public assistance and/or snow assistance.Public Assistance will pay 75 percent of eligible expenses for damage to roads, bridges, utilities, debris removal, buildings’ contents and equipment, water control facilities, parks and recreational facilities, and others, as well as emergency protective measures like traffic control and rescue operations. Snow Assistance will cover all eligible costs associated with snow removal for the 48-hour or 72-hour period with the highest costs.last_img read more

Injured Clarke pulls out of Masters

first_imgFormer Open champion Darren Clarke has been been forced to withdraw from this week’s Masters through injury. Clarke pulled a hamstring more than a week ago while on holiday on the Bahamian island of Abaco and will miss the season’s first major championship, which gets under way on Thursday. “It is with deep regret that I will not be able to play at Augusta this year,” Clarke said on his official website. “Playing in the Masters is one of golf’s greatest pleasures and I am very disappointed to be missing out.” Clarke pulled out of last week’s Valero Texas Open in the hope that further rest would speed his recovery, but intensive treatment twice a day failed to have the required results. The 44-year-old Northern Irishman, who missed the cut at Augusta last year on his first appearance since 2007, has yet to set a date for his return to action. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Cutting baseball was expected to save $500,000 a year. No other sports were eliminated, but there were to be other cost-cutting measures in the athletic department.Former players began a “Save BGSU Baseball” campaign shortly after the announcement the sport would be eliminated. The university said in a statement baseball could return if short- and long-term funding solutions can be secured to sustain the program the next three years and beyond. Athletic department spokesman Jason Knavel confirmed media reports that $1.5 million would need to be raised to achieve that goal. Knavel said no deadline has been set. Employees from across the organization are helping with the effort, which will try to produce about 60,000 masks per day. “I’m from Detroit. To be able to give back to the city that I was born in and give back to a city that has given so much to me is important,” said Reginald Woods, a ticket sales representative for the Tigers and Red Wings. “To continue the Tigers’ and Red Wings’ legacy of giving back to Detroit is special.”The masks will be donated to community groups and organizations that need them, as well as employees, franchises, customers, fans and guests.“To design, set up and activate a production facility like what we have here in less than two months is truly impressive,” said Eric Brasseur, who is overseeing the facility. “This was made possible by the collective efforts and adaptability of employees across our family of companies.”A spokesman for the effort said the project is following strict guidelines from the CDC, local and state authorities and other health organizations to ensure the safety of the staff. ___South Carolina men’s basketball coach Frank Martin says he has recovered from a case of COVID-19.Martin said he tested positive last month.

Spain bans gambling shirt sponsorships

first_imgShare Share Andrea Vota – Jdigital’s challenge of Spanish restrictions is led by logic and rationale August 13, 2020 Gambling companies will no longer be permitted to appear as front-of-shirt sponsors for La Liga clubs next season, according to a report in El Pais.Spanish Minister of Consumer Affairs Alberto Garzón has proposed a series of new draconian measures which will toughen up regulations on betting companies, including restrictions to sponsorship agreements and advertising exposure.Currently, eight clubs in La Liga feature a gambling company as a main shirt sponsor – Valencia, Alavés, Leganés, Granada, Mallorca, Sevilla, Osasuna and Levante.The ban follows the approval of laws as part of Spain’s ‘Royal Decree on Advertising’ which currently permits a four-hour advertising window for betting companies, but does not authorise any exposure out of the timeframe.In addition to the ban on shirt sponsorships, the new decree will prevent gambling companies from being allowed to sponsor stadium names nor any other aspect associated with the teams.Garzón had altered the wording of the ruling to state that “sponsorship in sports T-shirts or equipment will not be admissible”, with gambling companies already banned from featuring on youth shirts.The ban on using celebrity endorsements in betting adverts will also remain, however the inclusion of betting advertising on pitch perimeters ‘will depend on the regulation of each autonomous community’.Garzón anticipates that the bill will be in place for the start of the 2020/21 La Liga season, providing it gains the necessary approval in Brussels.

Five-star Zachary Evans commits to TCU after long-winding recruitment

first_imgEvans, who played at Galena Park North Shore High School in Houston, still can’t sign a letter of intent because he already signed one with Georgia. The Bulldogs, however, released Evans from that national letter of intent with no restrictions in January.  MORE: Alabama QB Taulia Tagovailoa in NCAA transfer portal, reports sayEvans, a 6-1, 210-pound back, has been compared to Adrian Peterson. He rushed for 3,268 yards and 56 TDs between this sophomore and junior seasons. He added 1,599 yards and 20 TDs as a senior.   Five-star running back Zachary Evans committed to TCU on Monday, according to a report from HornedFrogBlitz.com.  That ends a long-winding recruiting process for one of the most talented players in the class of 2020, and it gives the Horned Frogs their highest-ranked recruit ever, according to 247Sports.com.   Despite the talent, drama has followed the running back. He was suspended a few hours before the 6A-Division I state championship game in Texas for a violating a team rule involving cell phone usage. He signed with Georgia during the early signing period, but he was released from that LOI, which opened the recruiting process again.  Evans can enroll at TCU and not miss any time in the 2020 football season.  The Horned Frogs are getting a talented player at running back who will face high expectations given the school’s all-time leading rusher is LaDainian Tomlinson, who finished fourth in the Heisman Trophy voting in 2000. Tomlinson finished with 5,263 rushing yards and 54 TDs at TCU, both of which are school records.last_img read more
