Go Fund Me Campaign started for family who lost everything in house

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – A Go Fund Me campaign has started for a Fort St. John family who lost everything due to a house fire on August 5th.Greg Slack, Robyn Carr and their three children were luckily out of the house when the fire occurred at approximately 4:50 on Sunday. Fire crews were able to put out the fire within one hour but due to smoke damage, the house was unsalvagable.Fort St. John Fire Department Captain Marco D’Agostino explained that the fire started in the laundry room likely due to a build-up of lint in the dryer. D’agostino added that the family’s dryer had plastic tubes in the back which when exposed to excessive heat don’t react well. D’agistino went on to warn residents to check dryer lint deposits regularly so this doesn’t happen to their homes in the future.The family lost all their clothes, appliances, personal items, and children’s toys, making them have to effectively start from scratch.Anyone interested in donating to the Go Fund Me can click here.last_img read more

Ohio State junior starting pitcher Connor Curlis delivers a pitch Friday night against Nebraska in Bill Davis Stadium. Credit: Mac Connor | Ohio State AthleticsThe Ohio State baseball team (17-8, 0-1 Big Ten) got off to a hot start, scoring three times against Nebraska starter Luis Alvarado in the first two innings.But the Cornhusker ace blanked the Buckeyes over the next 6.1 innings and Nebraska (14-12, 2-2 Big Ten) finished off a 7-3 win in the Buckeyes’ conference opener Friday night.“We tried to control [Alvarado]’s rhythm a little bit, but he was pounding the strike zone,” head coach Greg Beals said. “Give his competitive spirit credit, because he got popped in the mouth early in the game and stayed in there and kept competing.”With no outs and a runner on first in the fifth inning, Husker junior shortstop Angelo Altavilla laid a sacrifice bunt attempt down the third base line. Third baseman Conner Pohl threw the ball away, allowing Nebraska sophomore center fielder Joe Acker to score on the throwing error. Altavilla later crossed home plate on a single by senior first baseman Scott Schreiber to give Nebraska the 5-3 lead.In the bottom of the ninth inning, a pinch-hit single, a fielder’s choice and a walk loaded the bases with two outs for Ohio State junior second baseman Brady Cherry. Nebraska closer Jake Hohensee shut down the opportunity and polished off his sixth save of the season with his third strikeout.Junior Connor Curlis started on the mound for the Buckeyes and was nearly unhittable through three innings, sitting down nine of 10 batters with four strikeouts. But the game began to unravel in the fourth inning.Schreiber smacked his team-leading seventh home run of the season, a no-doubter over the left field fence. Senior second baseman Zac Repinski kept things going with a one-out double to put two runners in scoring position. Both runners scored on a ground ball and a single to even the game at three.Curlis finished with eight strikeouts, surrendering three earned runs in 6.2 innings of work. Ohio State extended its early lead when redshirt junior designated hitter Nate Romans deposited the 1-0 pitch directly above the 400-foot sign in center field during the bottom of the second inning that put the Buckeyes ahead 3-0.“He came at me with the changeup first pitch and he didn’t hit with it, so I was sitting fastball and he left it up,” Romans said. “It’s kind of funny too, because we’ve got these new bat regulations and stuff and the wind was blowing in.”Nebraska scored two insurance runs in the eighth inning, closing the door on a potential Buckeye comeback. read more

Klopp defends Salah over diving claims

first_imgLiverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has risen to Mohamed Salah’s defence following allegations that he’s been diving to win penalties.The Egyptian forward has been at the centre of a growing debate over diving due to an apparent willingness to fall to the ground too easily in a challenge.As a result, several spot-kicks have come in Salah’s favour this term with Crystal Palace players even confronting him during Liverpool’s last game on January 19 when he was not awarded a penalty for falling to the ground.But Klopp is adamant that Salah would never dive on purpose and suggested that critics are only targetting him due to the fact he plays for a big club like Liverpool.“[Crystal Palace] was the first situation where he went down without [a penalty] and you speak about all the other situations as well,” said Klopp, according to FourFourTwo.“The other situations there is nothing to talk about – it is a penalty, done. If this is the first then why do we talk about?“There are other situations, much more obvious situations, that we don’t talk about and nobody is talking about because it’s not [Manchester] City, it’s not [Manchester] United, it’s not Liverpool, it’s not Arsenal or it’s not Chelsea.“All the others can do it from time to time and nobody really talks about it. It’s all fine.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“All the penalties against him were penalties, but people handle it like it was halfway diving – it was not. We don’t need blood for a foul in football. That’s all I will say about it.”Interestedly, Klopp then pointed out that Leicester City’s star striker Jamie Vardy falls to the ground in the same way as Salah does.The German made these comments ahead of tonight’s Premier League match against the Foxes at Anfield.“Did anyone talk to Jamie Vardy when, everybody saw [against Southampton], he jumped in? Is Jamie a bad person because of that?” Klopp added.“I don’t say now he is a diver. That is another situation.“You have them in the back, you are there, you feel something, do you have to go down?“Probably not. I don’t have to speak to players about obvious things. He knows that. Don’t go down in situations like that.”last_img read more
