The duo performed a strong paso doble for her tribute to Janet Jackson. In addition to being a huge fan of her music, Skai revealed that she wanted to honor the icon because of her activism. During her package, the Disney Channel alum detailed the racism she’s experienced during her life and revealed she has missed out on roles due to the color of her skin. At the end of her paso doble, “use your voice” was written on the back wall of the ballroom.In the second round, each duo competed in a dance-off challenge with another pair. Justina and Sasha danced the cha-cha to Lady Gaga and Beyonce‘s “Telephone” against Kaitlyn and Artem; AJ and Cheryl danced the jive to Ricky Martin‘s “Cup of Life” against Johnny and Britt; and Nelly and Daniella danced the salsa to Wham‘s “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go” against Skai and Alan.

That was incredible. We push you because we want you to reach your ultimate,” the judge told the pair. “Every line was amazing. Every lift. … Everything about it was amazing. Everything that we’ve been wanting from you was in this routine.”After her comments, Artem and Katilyn ran over to embrace Carrie Ann in a hug. The former Bachelorette also noted that even when the Hawaii native was a tough critic, she “knew it came from that place” of love, “even if it was hard to hear.”Kaitlyn Bristowe Artem Chigvintsev Receive Perfect Score DWTSKaitlyn Bristowe and Artem Chigvintsev perform on ‘Dancing With the Stars.’ ABCThe pair received a perfect 30 — their first of the season — and it wasn’t the only perfect score given on Monday night.

Baylee Douglass traveled nearly 300 miles to tryout for a softball team in high school

first_img Published on April 4, 2017 at 11:03 pm Contact Matt: mdliberm@syr.edu Baylee Douglass showed up to her second night of tryouts for the DeMarini Zephyrs, now the Aces, and was the only player asked to come back. Her father, Lynn, didn’t understand what was going on. There were some great players who tried out.After the tryout, Douglass sat next to her father in the family’s Honda Element. The two were an hour into their nearly three-hour journey from Kansas City to their hometown of Centralia, Missouri. DeMarini head coach Ryan Taylor told Douglass he would be in touch soon about whether she made the team. Douglass couldn’t wait any longer and after much pestering, Lynn called Taylor.Douglass made the team. In fact, she made it after her first tryout. Lynn asked Taylor if he just asked Douglass to come back the second night to pitch batting practice.“He kind of snickered and said ‘Yeah. She was on the team,’” Lynn said. “’We just wanted her to come back and throw a little batting practice.’ I was like ‘gosh dang it.’”Douglass was a freshman in high school then. Now Douglass is a Syracuse (17-12, 3-6 Atlantic Coast) transfer. The junior hasn’t played that much due to injury, appearing in only four games for a total of 7 1/3 innings. But before she transferred to Syracuse, she had to get on the Division I radar. And given that her hometown had about 1,000 people, Douglass needed to travel far distances to make that happen.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“At that point we were willing to do anything possible,” Douglass said.Seeing the opportunity, Lynn drove his daughter the 150-plus miles to try out for the team, and 150 miles back. After tryouts ended that night, Douglass was invited back for the second day of tryouts. When she got to the field, that’s when she realized she was the only returning player.Taylor saw a spark in that tryout that made him call Douglass back.“The kid’s 5’3, not that big, doesn’t have overpowering speed, but man she really spun the ball well,” Taylor said. “You kind of just have that gut feeling with players.”Douglass made the six-hour round trip from Centralia to Kansas City every Wednesday night, on top of a three-hour practice. Douglass and Lynn would leave around 2:00 p.m., and typically get home between 12:00-1:00 a.m.Despite the driving time, Douglass was punctual.“I could probably count in the four years she played the number of times she was late on one hand,” Taylor said.On the way there they’d stop at either KFC or Taco Bell in Concordia, about an hour shy from practice. On their drives home, Lynn would make sure to stop at a quick mart and grab ice for Douglass’ shoulder and elbow.For Douglass, the drives felt longer than they were. She suffers from motion sickness, which is one of the reasons why the pair drove down in an elevated Honda Element, allowing Douglass to see out of the front window, even from the back seat when her mother came for the drive.But this meant she couldn’t do homework or read in the car. Despite the limited time to do work, and constantly having to pick up from not having enough time, Douglass finished atop her high school class.The time commitment wasn’t just on Douglass, though, but her entire family. Taking time to drive to-and-from practice, spending money on gas, travel expenses and equipment accumulated a lofty bill.“For the amount of money we paid for Baylee’s travel ball career,” Lynn said, “we probably could’ve put her through just about any college and grad school.”Her impact on the game still remains with her former coach and the new DeMarini Aces. Douglass was the first player on the team to travel such a far distance. But after she joined, Taylor began expanding his recruiting.But the money, and time, paid off. Douglass played two seasons at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville with outstanding performances, winning the conference freshman of the year and was second-team all-conference her sophomore year. Now, she plays at SU.“My wife always said, ‘Lynn, we can’t afford to be on this team,’” Lynn said. “And I told her, ‘We can’t afford not to.’” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Wellington has 2 public tornado shelters; however you may want to find shelter at home

first_imgBy Tim Hay, Wellington Fire/EMS Chief — There are only two public tornado shelter locations in the city of Wellington.They are located at Sumner Regional Medical Center at 1323 North A (enter on the southeast side)….…and Sumner Care Center Nursing Home 1600 West 8th (enter on the west side).The old junior high located at 311 North A is no longer a public shelter as the building was sold to a private entity.  The City of Wellington encourages the public to find primary shelter in their home or business during a tornado warning as there may not be time to drive to a public shelter.  Locations to shelter in the home or business are a basement, interior hallway or bathroom without windows.Other locations to seek shelter are a neighbor, friend or family with a basement.  Make sure you have arrangements to gain access to their home or business in the event they are not occupied.  Those who live in a mobile home are encouraged to leave the mobile home regardless as mobile homes are easily damaged or destroyed by high winds or tornadoes.If you are in a vehicle and do not have time to seek shelter exit the vehicle and find shelter in a low lying area.  Tornado sirens are only efficient as outdoor warning devices.  They are not meant to be heard in structures or vehicles.The public must stay vigilant at all times when threatening weather approaches.  Tornado sirens are sounded when the national weather service includes the City of Wellington or the Wellington Lake (which can be sounded individually) or when an emergency responder visually confirms a tornado.When a tornado siren sounds or the national weather service issues a tornado warning for our area the public is encouraged to seek shelter immediately.  There are “no” sounding of the sirens for an all clear.  The public must decide when it is safe to leave shelter based on media reports and other information.  Visit the City of Wellington website, http://cityofwellington.net/, periodically for news and shelter information.

We’ve now lost that, and there will be a large gap in leadership during the hiring process for SRMC, which will be lengthy.

He was the administrator at Morton County Health Systems in Elkhart before coming to Wellington with over 20 years of hospital administrative experience.In his three years, Hernandez helped pass a half-cent sales tax initiative for SRMC, assisted in the hiring of a new surgeon, implemented the “March to Million” program which was to collect $1 million in cash, and helped increase the volume of accounts receivable payments. The following is Hernandez’ official statement: I have submitted my resignation this morning to the HCA Board for my position as President and Chief Executive Officer for Sumner Regional Medical Center. I have accepted the President and Chief Executive Officer position for the Coffey Health system in Burlington, Kansas and will start there on September 21.  I want to thank the Board for giving me the opportunity to lead the hospital for the last three years.  Small hospitals are struggling all across America but if those of us who continue to believe there is a place for them, continue to work for them, they can survive.  There are of course issues that will always be factors, like location, that may always hinder some of the change that is required, but we must continue to fight for the same benefits that other small hospitals can and do get! I also want to thank the community for allowing me and my family to become a part of it from the beginning. We are so blessed to have the quality medical staff that exists in our hospital and those who come and do outreach clinics here in Wellington.  You are the best and I will truly miss working with you. And finally, to the staff, who I often refer to as the best I ever worked with,  THANK YOU for everything!  We have grown a lot together over the last few years, the struggles and the successes from them are all due to your efforts and commitment to Sumner Regional Medical Center. Please keep up the great job you do every day!Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more

Michigan will not have full Big House if college football happens in 2020

first_imgThe Big House will not be at full capacity in 2020.  Michigan announced Wednesday that attendance will be reduced or games will be played without fans if there is a college football season in 2020. As a result, there will no season tickets for football.   Michigan Stadium is the largest college football stadium, with a capacity of 107,601. On May 20, Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh addressed the logistical problems of filling a stadium of that size with fans while trying to play a game.  MORE: Four things we’ll miss in 2020 with a conference-only schedule”You could definitely test both teams and the officials, but can you test 100,000 fans coming into a stadium?” Harbaugh said. “Probably not. Heck yeah, I would be comfortable coaching a game without any fans. If the choice was to play in front of fans or not play, I would choose play in front of no fans.”   The Big Ten moved to a conference-only scheduling model last week, the first Power 5 conference to make that move.   “We have been working closely with a wide variety of leaders to ensure a safe and healthy environment for our student-athletes, coaches, fans and support staff associated with a game at Michigan Stadium,” Michigan athletic director Warde Manuel said in the release Wednesday. “We will follow the direction that all of these agencies and experts continue to provide during this challenging time.”Michigan also announced decisions regarding ticket policies.  Season ticket-holder status and location will be retained for 2021, according to the university. Tickets for home games in 2020 would be sold on a game-by-game basis if there is a season, and sales would be limited to season-ticket holders and students. All ticketing for sporting events will move to a mobile platform.last_img read more
