Hunting accident takes life of Seaman man

first_imgHomeNewsHunting accident takes life of Seaman man Seaman resident Greg Burns passed away in a hunting accident on Oct. 18. – Submitted photo An Adams County man was killed accidentally on Sunday, Oct. 18 in a hunting accident on the Adams/Highland County border.The body of Gregory Lynn Burns, 60, of Seaman was discovered late Sunday evening by a family member. Burns had gone hunting, but had not told his family. When he failed to return home they became concerned and began to search for him. He was found by a family member who called 911.The Highland County Sheriff’s office responded to the 911 call at 8:06 p.m.. Deputy Johnathan Malone arrived at the scene on Shaw Baker Road in Concord Township. Burns was found approximately 1/4 mile from the road in a wooded area.According to Deputy Malone who conducted an investigation at the scene, Burns had fallen about thirty feet when a cable holding his tree stand snapped. He was unresponsive, having suffered a severe skull fracture. The Mowrystown Life Squad took him to the Adams County Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced dead at 9 p.m.It’s not that deer hunting is unsafe, per se, but most bow hunters — and an increasing number of gun hunters — now hunt from elevated platforms and tree stands according to Howard Meyerson from the Grand Rapids Press.In his article titled, Tree Stand Accident Numbers Don’t Add Up Meyerson reported that the Ohio State University Medical Center published a 10-year study last year showing “tree stands are the leading cause of hunting injuries in Ohio.”Researchers were looking to “debunk the popular stereotypes that most hunting injuries are gunshot wounds,” the Medical Center announced when it released its study.The study examined 130 hunting accident cases at two central Ohio hospitals. Half were because of falls and 92 percent of those falls were from tree stands. Only 29 percent were injuries from gunshot wounds.Of those who fell, 59 percent suffered fractures: 47 percent had either lower or upper extremity fractures: ankles, legs, shoulders, arms and wrists. Another 18 percent had closed-head injuries and 8.2 percent “suffered permanent neurological damage.”“Most of the hunters were not wearing safety harnesses,” said Dr. Charles Cook, the lead author of the study and a trauma surgeon at Ohio State University Medical Center.

Two’s a Charm for Stephanie Dubois-Emond in Young Horse Series

first_imgFor the second time in a row, Stephanie-Dubois-Emond captured victory in the Six-Year-Old Division aboard the Canadian-bred EWSZ’s Jerevel.  The pair was one of only three to advance to the jump-off where they again jumped clear in a time of 33.64 seconds. High Graham of Loretto, ON also claimed victory at the second Young Horse Series event in a row, guiding Knock Out 3E to another win in the Five-Year-Old Division.  Graham was one of two entries to jump double clear, and his jump-off time of 40.76 seconds secured the win.  Knock Out 3E is owned and bred by KingRidge Stables.  The bay Canadian Sport Horse gelding is by KingRidge stallion Jamestown and out of a Class Action mare. Rounding out the top three was Judgement Day 3E, ridden by Ballard for owner and breeder KingRidge Stables in King City, ON.  The grey Canadian Sport Horse gelding had the third fence down in the jump-off, stopping the clock in 35.87 seconds.  KingRidge Stables bloodlines are prominent in Judgement Day 3E’s breeding, as the gelding is by Double Diamond and out of an Aerobic mare. The purpose of the Jump Canada Young Horse Series is to encourage the development of young show jumping talent and to give Canadian breeders additional incentives to breed superior show jumping prospects.  Competing on a level playing field, the horses are divided according to age and jump at a level suited to their development.  This careful development allows the horses to gain valuable experience and advance to the higher levels of show jumping competition with confidence.  The Jump Canada Young Horse Series also gives prospective buyers for the hunter and jumper markets an opportunity to view a large group of prospects in a competition setting. Beam P, ridden by Natasha Smith-Avery for owner Susan Perreault-Park of Tottenham, ON, was the only other entry in the seven-horse starting field to make it to the jump-off.  However, a wrong turn on course meant elimination and a third place finish.  Bred in Canada by Prima Warmblood of Mount Albert, ON, the bay Dutch Warmblood gelding is by Indoctro and out of an Emilion mare. Dubois-Emond riding EWSZ’s Cabamba received 45 jumping points after a rail down at the ninth fence on course.  Their style score of 40 points gave them a combined score of 85 points for second place. “She was really, really good,” said the 21-year-old of the bay Rheinland Pfalz-Saar mare owned and bred by European Warmblood Stallion Zentrum Inc. of Arva, ON.  “She actually jumped me right out of the tack, making me loose my stirrups, because she was blowing over the fences so well.  She always tries her hardest every time out and is just such a good-hearted mare.” EWSZ’s Cabamba is owned and bred by European Warmblood Stallion Zentrum Inc.  The bay Rheinland Pfalz-Saar mare is by Corrido de Chatillon and out of a Le Comte II mare. Stanley Stone, owned and ridden by Elliott Stone of Woodbridge, ON, finished a very close second with a clear jump-off round in a time of 33.66 seconds, just two one-hundredths of a second behind Dubois-Emond.  The bay Dutch Warmblood gelding is by Karandasj and out of an Ekstein mare. The second event in the central region of the 2011 Jump Canada Young Horse Series was held June 22-26 at the CornerStone Show in Palgrave, ON. Finishing third was Ballard aboard another Dutch-bred horse, Wennous, owned by the Looking Good Group.  Ballard and Wennous had the fourth fence down in the jump-off, crossing the timers in 31.43 seconds.  The eight-year-old Dutch Warmblood mare is by Orame and out of a Peter Pan mare. In the Seven and Eight-Year-Old Division, Wicoca, ridden by Erynn Ballard of Hillsburgh, ON, took the win with two clear rounds and a time of 34.12 seconds.  Owned by South Shore Farm in Mont-Saint-Hilaire, QC, the eight-year-old grey Dutch Warmblood gelding was bred in the Netherlands and is by Concorde out of a Capitol II mare. Dubois-Emond, who hails from Gurnee, IL, plans to campaign EWSZ’s Jerevel, who is by Daimier D’Adriers and out of a Rio Grande mare, for the remainder of the 2011 Jump Canada Young Horse Series.

Couple separated by Pacific Ocean — and coronavirus

first_imgFacebook(LOS ANGELES, Calif.) — Couple separated by Pacific Ocean — and coronavirusMark and Jerri Jorgensen unexpectedly found themselves in the middle of a global health scare — and thousands of miles away from each other.Mark Jorgensen was bemused to find himself, on Feb. 26, on the way to North Bay Medical Center in California in an ambulance followed by federal marshals, who “seemed a little excessive, but okay,” he wrote on Facebook.He had just tested positive for coronavirus.Meanwhile, on the other side of the Pacific Ocean, Mark’s wife, Jerri Jorgensen, already was in quarantine, in a Japanese hospital, having tested positive less than two weeks earlier.Mark, 55, and Jerri, 65, have unexpectedly found themselves in the middle of a global health scare — after doing little more than booking a vacation on the Diamond Princess cruise ship.The Utah residents booked the trip with friends to celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary, which was last fall, and their birthdays, both in January. They flew to Tokyo Jan. 20 and boarded the Diamond Princess to begin a two-week holiday that included stops in Hong Kong, Vietnam, Taiwan and Japan.At that point, news about the new coronavirus already was coming out of China, but the couple said they didn’t give it much thought.They had their temperatures taken in several ports as they disembarked, but beyond that the virus didn’t concern them.“I kind of poo-pooed the mask idea, to be honest,” Mark Jorgensen told ABC News. “We would never have guessed what would come.”Then, the last night of the cruise, Feb. 3, their bags were packed and waiting in the hallway when the ship’s captain made an announcement at dinner.One man, a passenger who’d disembarked in Hong Kong, had contracted the coronavirus, and no one could leave the ship for 24 hours — all passengers first had to be screened.The Japanese Health Ministry took over, and everyone on board had their temperatures taken. When the screening revealed more people had the virus, the entire ship was placed under quarantine.The Jorgensens documented it all on Facebook.‘I’ll call you when I know where I’m going to be’At first, the passengers were allowed to mingle, do ship activities, take their meals in the dining areas. That changed Feb. 5. The Jorgensens and their friends were confined to their rooms. Over the next few days, news of additional passengers coming down with coronavirus was announced over the loudspeakers.On Feb. 12, health care workers tested Mark and Jerri Jorgensen, swabbing their throats and noses.“We’ll take anything to break up the monotony at this point,” Mark Jorgensen wrote on Facebook.On Feb. 15, medical workers returned to their room and said Jerri Jorgensen had tested positive. She’d had a slight fever the night before but said she otherwise felt fine. The staff told her to pack a backpack, and within an hour she’d left in an ambulance.“I’ll call you when I know where I’m going to be,” she told Mark Jorgensen, rushing out the door. She was taken to a hospital in Fukuyama — a four-hour drive.Mark Jorgensen remained in Yokohama aboard the Diamond Princess, waiting for a flight organized by the U.S. State Department to shuttle home stranded Americans.“Mark could have stayed behind, but why?” Jerri Jorgensen said. After she tested positive for the new coronavirus, they couldn’t have seen each other anyway.Plot twistMark Jorgensen began his long journey home on Feb. 16. He waited hours for everyone on the ship to be unloaded, placed on buses to Tokyo International Airport. He arrived at Travis Air Force Base in California the next morning.Although still isolated, Jorgensen had a suite of rooms and was allowed to walk outside in a yard so long as he wore a mask and didn’t get too close to other people.The evacuated Americans were to be kept in quarantine for 14 days.Then, Jorgensen got the news he’d been dreading: On Feb. 25, he was told that he’d tested positive for the coronavirus. That’s how he found himself the next day on his way to North Bay Medical Center accompanied by federal marshals. The following day, he got moved again to Mercy Hospital in Folsom, which has better facilities to deal with him.He said he’s not sure how he caught the virus — possibly from his wife, possibly from another passenger on the plane home. The virus is thought to have a long incubation period.In order to be cleared to leave quarantine, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control requires that nose and throat swabs taken from a patient test negative for two straight days. If they test positive, they have to wait 48 hours for their next test.Time in quarantineAfter Jerri Jorgensen’s slight fever passed, neither Mark nor Jerri Jorgensen exhibited any symptoms, which is good but which also makes the quarantine time feel a bit unreal.“Without Mark, it kinda sucks,” Jerri Jorgensen told ABC News. “But we could be in quarantine in the same hospital and have the same amount of contact.”The two FaceTime regularly with each other and with family and friends. Twice a week, Jerri Jorgensen wakes up at 1:30 a.m. Japan time to join her Pilates class in Utah.The first 2 1/2 days in Japan, Jerri Jorgensen didn’t have reliable Wi-Fi or a good phone signal. She said she felt very disconnected. She begged the hospital staff for a newspaper and was given copies of The Japan Times, a local English-language newspaper.“I would read them through three or four times,” she added.Then her internet access was restored.“It’s amazing how much we rely on technology,” she said. “If I were just here in isolation, I would lose a connection to the world … that’s when trouble hits.”She regularly exchanges messages with a representative from the Diamond Princess and a liaison from the U.S. Embassy. She also uses Google translate to communicate with hospital staff, none of whom speak English.Jerri and Mark Jorgensen’s Facebook livestreams have racked up thousands of views.The emotional connection is there, she said, but she hadn’t realized how important physical touch was until now. Jerri Jorgensen hasn’t touched another person since she said goodbye to her husband the day after Valentine’s Day.“I haven’t had a hug in a week and a half,” she said. “I haven’t felt the sun on my face for a long time, and that’s hard.”Both said despite the uncertainty and frustration, their quarantines weren’t as bad as they could’ve been — or perhaps as bad as portrayed by some media outlets. They said they’ve been treated extremely well by all involved health care workers, representatives of the CDC and employees of Diamond Cruises.Focusing on the positives and accepting what they can’t change, the couple, who run an addiction recovery center in Utah, are putting their teaching into practice.Sometimes, Mark Jorgensen said, he feels like a lab rat walking around a cage.“We’re walking biohazards,” he joked.Jorgensen said it was helpful to remind himself everyone’s doing their best, and with the virus being so new, no one knows what to expect. And because he’s not actually sick, sometimes it’s difficult to think about being so close to something so serious.Jerri Jorgensen has fallen into something of a routine to help pass the time.“It’s a choice,” she said. “I wake up every day and say, ‘What can I do to make today amazing?’”Apart from yoga, she’s caught up on Netflix series, been in contact with friends, read a number of books and racked up a few thousand steps every day dancing to 80s music in her hospital room.An ocean apart, but closer togetherJerri and Mark Jorgensen have spent a lot of time laughing about their situation on the phone.“We’re adding this to the uniqueness and craziness of our story,” she joked. “If I feel anxious, I’m going to go do a plank. That’ll take that anxiety right away.”That said, by the end of February, Jerri Jorgensen had enough me-time. She wants to get back into the world, including mountain biking in Utah. The CDC and Diamond Princess have organized a flight back to the U.S. on March 4. She hopes she’s on it.Mark Jorgensen has been moved around more than Jerri Jorgensen and hasn’t settled into as much of a routine. But he said he’s kept worry at bay by living intentionally, trying to take lessons from the whole experience.He said he thinks he and Jerri may have grown closer despite — or maybe because of — the distance.“Instead of going through life and taking her for granted, Jerri and I have been able to spend time talking to each other,” he said. “Rather than sitting in front of a TV screen, we’ve had some important conversations.”On Feb. 19, Mark Jorgensen posted a photo on Facebook of Jerri Jorgensen making a silly face after eating tofu in Taiwan. She hadn’t let him post it in January because she didn’t think she looked good.“During the past two weeks,” he wrote, “we’ve both come to better appreciate what really matters in life, and that doesn’t include how we appear to others. As evidence, I would offer our recent various interviews and videos. For what it’s worth, I always thought this picture was adorable. I’m glad more people can now see it.”An end in sightOver the weekend, Jerri Jorgensen posted a video on Facebook to say that she had finally tested negative, and the Diamond Princess was organizing for her to move to a hotel in Tokyo to wait for a flight home. The U.S. Embassy was working to take her name off the no-fly list. She was “bouncing off the walls giddy” to hear the news, and will make that plane back to the U.S. on March 4.Meanwhile Mark Jorgensen got a step closer to home, too. On Friday night, as his wife was getting the all-clear, he got transferred by plane to a hospital in Salt Lake City – his third transfer since leaving Travis Airbase on Feb 26.“I will be here for at least a few more days,” Mark said in a Facebook video over the weekend.He is still testing positive for coronavirus.“I had fantasies of those two pending tests coming back negative and them sending me home tomorrow, but I think deep down I knew that wouldn’t be the case,” he said.He has a backlog of tests being processed from each of the hospitals he has been at and he’s having nose and throat swabs every day.For the moment, it’s still a case of wait and see.

Earth, Wind & Fire Becomes First African-American Band To Receive Kennedy Center Honors

first_imgEarth, Wind & Fire (EWF) made history earlier this week when they became the first African-American band to be inducted into the Kennedy Center Honors at the 42nd edition of the annual awards and performance ceremony this past Sunday, December 8th.Three of the band’s original members, Philip Bailey, Ralph Johnson, and Verdine White, were in attendance to accept the honor. Other recipients were singer Linda Ronstadt, two-time Academy Award-winner Sally Field, Grammy Award-winner Michael Tilson Thomas, and beloved children’s show Sesame Street—which is celebrating its 50th birthday this year.Related: Kennedy Center Announces 2019 Honorees: Earth, Wind, & Fire, Linda Ronstadt, MoreThe Kennedy Center Honors have been an annual presentation since 1978. The distinction is awarded to leaders in the performing arts for their longstanding contributions to American culture.Bailey commented on the group’s success in relation to being the first African-American inductees in an interview with Billboard in saying, “There are so many more African-American acts that are deserving and perhaps this can be the first of many more to come.”The Chicago-based multi-genre musical group has been making music for nearly 50 years. Formed in 1969, EWF is known for blending the smooth styles of R&B and soul with the energy and commercial elements of funk, rock, and jazz to become one of the more inventive and successful pop acts of the past several decades.As the gala convened in the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington D.C., singer Ralph Johnson paid respects to late EWF founder Maurice White, who passed away in 2016. “You can’t play any Earth Wind & Fire songs without Maurice’s DNA being on it,” said Johnson. “So he’s always here and we’re always celebrating him and his vision.”While it is difficult to get politicians in Washington to agree on much these days, a large group of lawmakers and cabinet members on both sides of the aisle were present to celebrate this historic event.When the Kennedy Center board chairman David Rubenstein mentioned the presence of members such as House Speaker and noted Deadhead Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), the room elevated and erupted with applause. Along with over 40 members of Congress, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Treasury Secretary Steven Munchin were also present.On the heels of their 50th year, EWF members hinted at the possibility of a new album, though they were hesitant to provide details. “We’re making a list, and checking it twice,” Bailey told Billboard. “You’ll hear about it soon.”The event will air on network television Sunday, December 15th, on CBS.[H/T Billboard]last_img read more

The musical food that sets the table for the ‘West Coast Boogaloo’ record sets the table for ‘Como De Allstars,’ as well,” Elgin Park said with Wednesday’s album announcement. “For better or worse we are the same band with the same objective: funky soul-jazz boogaloo that’s danceable, while simultaneously setting the stage for inspired improvisation.”“When we’re in a room together, we have such a great time and the music we make reflects that,” Park continued. “Getting the physical bodies together is almost impossible, given our schedules, but it immediately feels like it did back then.”The band shared the album’s lead single and title track to go with Wednesday’s announcement. The catchy song grooves along with elements of soul and tropicalia to make for a livening listening experience just in time for summer.

Asfaw is a medical doctor who has galvanized over 550 medical and non-health professionals in the U.S. and Canada to give their time and talents to address the profound health care crises in Ethiopia. With donations of money and time, he founded the nonprofit Ethiopian North American Health Professionals Association (ENAHPA). His prize, awarded on April 12, is a new car from Volvo for the rest of his life. One hundred semifinalists were also chosen from more than 4,000 nominations.A humble man but a brilliant surgeon, Dr. Asfaw has led volunteers from the health profession into Ethiopia on semi-annual medical missions since 1999.During the May 2005 mission, the delegation performed nearly 100 surgical procedures; conducted advanced training for 250 Ethiopian health care professionals; donated 32,400 books; and provided lifesaving medical equipment, instruments, and supplies to several specialized hospitals, three universities, and a leprosy research training center.Dr. Ingida Asfaw embodies the American dream of the impoverished immigrant who achieves extraordinary success and skill in their adopted land. But he also has educated a generation of health care professionals back in his native country and inspired others to reach beyond borders to bring hope to those in desperate need.ENAHPA serves 1700 adults and children living with HIV/AIDS by providing free anti-retroviral treatment and soon will include 8,000 more. The group supports orphans and maternity wards (with donations of sterile maternity kits) and is building a new Maternal and Child Health Care Center in the city of Awassa.In 1958, at the age of sixteen, Asfaw traveled two weeks from Ethiopia to America aboard a cargo ship, arriving with little money, but a big dream: to become a doctor and return to Ethiopia with healing hands. He has achieved his dream against extraordinary odds, always returning to his homeland to tend the needs of so many of its impoverished and suffering citizens.Ethiopia is the land of beautiful faces.
