Nancy Lee Cory

first_imgNancy Lee Cory, age 85, departed this life on Thursday, June 9, 2016 at her residence in Batesville.  Nan was born in Rhinelander, Wisconsin on May 19, 1931, to Jack and Rimah (Brandenburg) Cory.  She spent her early years in Rhinelander where her father was the editor of the Rhinelander Daily News.  That northern Wisconsin lifestyle undoubtedly led to her lifelong love for the outdoors, fishing and animals – she was never without a dog and usually had a cat or two thrown in for good measure.Nan attended junior high and high school in Columbus, Indiana.  After high school she took a factory job for one year to earn money for college.  She entered Indiana University in the fall of 1951, graduating in 1955 with a B.S. in Physical Education, Health and Recreation.  She taught physical education at Connersville High School for eleven years.  After receiving her master’s degree in guidance and counseling at Miami University she was hired as a guidance counselor at Union County High School in Liberty, Indiana in 1966.  She served in that position for 27 years, retiring in 1993 as the Director of Guidance Counseling. Nan lived in Brookville for nearly all 38 years of her teaching.  Throughout Nan’s life, one of her greatest delights was hearing from former students.  She moved to Batesville in 2005.  Nan wasn’t much of a cook, but she managed to convert that deficiency into a positive by turning her restaurant visits into opportunities to socialize.  Always upbeat, she loved to chat with the staffs of area dining establishments and learn about their families, pets and children.  Nan was a longtime member of Tri-Kappa and the Daughters of the American Revolution.  She also enjoyed her membership in the Ripley County Retired Teachers Association. Survivors include an uncle, Elmer Hoehn of Jeffersonville, Indiana and cousins Pat Hoehn, also of Jeffersonville, and Kathy (David) Gilmore of Houston, Texas.  Besides her parents, she was preceded in death by long-time companion Virginia “Ginny” Krause. Friends may visit with the family on Tuesday, June 14, 2016 from 5 to 7 p.m. at Cook Rosenberger Funeral Home, 929 Main Street, Brookville.  The Memorial service, officiated by Pastor Curtis Bond, will begin at 7 p.m. Memorial donations may be directed to the Franklin or Ripley County Humane Societies or to The Batesville Area Food Pantry.  To sign the online guestbook or to leave a personal condolence please visit www.cookrosenberger.com.  Cook Rosenberger Funeral Home and its staff are honored to care for the family of Nancy Cory.last_img read more

Dyche not worried by goal-shy side

first_imgBoss Sean Dyche insisted he was never worried about Burnley’s lack of goals after they ended their record drought. Jeff Schlupp and Riyad Mahrez twice put Leicester in front but the visitors battled back and Dyche insisted the goals would always come. He said “A lot was made of it. I know we’re creating chances but the rest of it is opinion. I thought we made a lot of good chances and it’s about the quality of chance. We want chances which are really open but we are making nearly chances. “It’s been coming and it was a moment of real talent from Ross and the first was a fantastic little clip from Scott Arfield to Lukas (Jutkiewicz) and Kites is on the spot. It was a really good move and it’s important we find that within our play.” It was a deserved point for the Clarets as they improved after last week’s 4-0 defeat at West Brom to move off the bottom on goal difference. “I was really pleased with the performance, me speaking about it wouldn’t be different if we’d lost, but the point adds a bit of gloss to it,” added Dyche. “We deserved a point. Whatever happens you have to move forward. I felt we were dominant.” But Leicester boss Nigel Pearson revealed his frustration after admitting he was annoyed at the Foxes’ failure to hang on at the King Power Stadium. Wallace struck deep into seven minutes of injury time to deny the hosts a second home win of the season. Michael Kightly scored the Clarets’ first goal in 10 hours and 55 minutes of action, setting a new club record by four minutes. Ross Wallace’s stoppage-time free kick salvaged a 2-2 draw as Burnley lifted themselves off the bottom of the Barclays Premier League. He said: “I’m annoyed today, we should win the game. We’re better than we were last season and I don’t think they are as good as they were on today’s performance but what they do have is spirit. “It’s disappointing to drop two points because whatever the circumstances are we should have won the game. I don’t think they caused us too many problems. “It was scrappy game, they didn’t come here to play any fluid football, they came to be difficult to beat. We didn’t do enough with the ball but we still looked comfortable. “It felt like a Championship game, there was not a great deal of fluidity to it.” Press Associationlast_img read more

New federal jobless benefits to include $400/week bonus, not $600

first_imgIowans who are collecting unemployment will see federal benefits extended under President Trump’s executive order, which he signed as the U-S House and Senate still disagree over a new COVID-19 relief package. Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley says the president’s plan is for Uncle Sam to pick up 75-percent of the cost of those updated jobless benefits, leaving states to pay the remaining 25-percent.“It would go $300 of enhanced federal money,” Grassley says, “and out of the $150-billion that went to states or their own money, they have to put up $100.” The added federal jobless benefits ran out July 31st and while they lasted, were providing many unemployed people an additional 600-dollars a week. Grassley says the new 400-dollars-a-week plan is the result of compromise.Grassley says, “That $400, I think, was probably selected because it was halfway between the $200 figure that was in the Senate bill and the $600 that we have right now.” The 400-dollar payments are on top of the regular state unemployment benefits, so some people are able to make more money by not returning to work. Grassley says 600-dollars was way too much and hurt businesses of all sizes as they couldn’t get people to come back to their jobs.“Maybe the $400 is still a disincentive for people to go back to work, but obviously it wouldn’t be as much of a disincentive as the $600,” Grassley says, “and I think it runs for two months.” Negotiations over the new COVID relief package fell apart late last week. Democrats propose spending some three-trillion dollars through their plan, the HEROES Act, while Republicans favor a one-trillion dollar rescue effort called the HEALS Act.last_img read more

Follow the Trace | ‘Flagging’ a dead horse

first_img The few anaemic reasons actually posited have been laughable. One popular sports analyst has argued vehemently that what Rodgers did with the flag was wrong because it is against “Jamaican culture” and that it was strange because it had never been done before at Champs. Other critics of the actions have opined that it was inappropriate and disrespectful to his new school and an insult to Jamaicans generally. I am still trying to extract some sense out of all that nonsense. One conspiracy theorist asked me personally why were other non-Jamaicans such Zharnel Hughes, from Anguilla, Delano Williams from the Turks and Caicos Islands; or Jorel Bellafonte, a Cayman Islands national, who were all prominent and popular champs winners, never given their national flags to display at champs? The conclusion of the theory being that Rodgers was given the flag to use to insult all the locals who were against him competing at champs. Again, the rationality of that theory escapes me. The spectacle of another show-stopping Champs showcase that resonated across the entire globe, with the very best of young Jamaican athletics talent on show, has not been given a fair chance to resonate, as the post-Champs conversation has been dominated by Ari Rodgers’ decision to wrap himself in the Ugandan flag. Jamaicans, from time to time, tend to display a false and exaggerated sense of patriotism when convenient to them. This is yet another such case of overkill. I have been trying now, without success for several days, to find a rational oasis in the vast desert of nothingness behind this issue. I must admit my failings. Here we go again, basking in our new national pastime of majoring in the minor, while continuing to ‘flag’ the a dead horse. LAUGHABLE REASONS It continues to be very surprising and indeed baffling that so many otherwise well thinking Jamaicans have expressed outright disgust, disapproval, and even concern about Kingston College’s Ugandan distance runner Ari Rodgers wrapping himself in the Ugandan flag while celebrating his victory in the 5,000-metre event win at the recently concluded ISSA/GraceKennedy Boys and Girls’ Athletics Championships. My personal befuddlement knows no bounds as to what the real or credible issue or issues could conceivable, to justify so many persons having a problem with a 16-year-old youngster domiciled many miles away from his African homeland, competing at Jamaica’s epic athletics championships for his new school in his adopted country, and in his moment of triumph, he chooses to parade the flag of the country of his birth. What protocol did he breach? What sensitivities did he offend? Contrast the possible motives behind this flag pushback by some Jamaicans, against the real-life scenario of Jamaican high schools that compete regularly at the annual Penn Relays in the United States, where Jamaican schools and colleges routinely display and parade the Jamaican flag while celebrating success on the track. How is what Ari Rodgers did differently in principle to what the Jamaican schools do every year at Penn Relays?last_img read more

Kings run wild in beating Lakers

first_imgLOS ANGELES – The good news for the Lakers is that center Kwame Brown’s return from an ankle injury is expected to shore up their defense for the season’s final 24 games, giving them a back-line anchor who might be the NBA’s strongest player. The bad news was that Brown’s return and the Lakers defensive resurgence didn’t exactly coincide Friday night, as the Sacramento Kings shredded their Pacific Division rival in a 116-108 victory at Staples Center. Three days off was all it took to break the Lakers’ rhythm after three impressive wins. The Kings built a 21-point lead in the third quarter and held off the Lakers despite Lamar Odom’s inspired play in the fourth. So ended the Lakers’ hope of matching a season-high with their fourth consecutive win. They also lost for the first time in eight games within the division and fell 31/2 games behind Houston in the race for fifth playoff spot in the Western Conference. The Lakers allowed a season-high 65 points in the first half and trailed by 17 points at halftime. They closed within 11 points in the third quarter before falling apart amid one breakdown after another. If the Lakers choose to watch the tape, it will start with Martin running Bryant off a screen and hitting a 3-pointer. Then there was Artest slipping past Odom to score after Miller grabbed an offensive rebound for the Kings. After that, Bibby connected on a 3-pointer and Miller drained another jumper. Miller’s 19-footer made it 83-62 with 5:20 left. As if that wasn’t bad enough, Brian Cook threw an outlet pass over Smush Parker’s head and out of bounds after pulling down a defensive rebound. The Lakers heard scattered boos in the quarter. The Lakers welcomed back Brown after he missed 27 games with a sprained ankle, but the team also disclosed that Luke Walton will see a specialist Monday about his sore ankle. Walton’s availability for the upcoming four-game road trip is uncertain. Brown played nearly all of the fourth quarter but did not score in 20 minutes. In addition, the Lakers played without Maurice Evans, who had started the previous three games but had been bothered by knee soreness all week. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!center_img The Lakers gave up 10 straight points to start the game, as well as big runs in the second and third quarters. The task won’t get any easier on Sunday, as the Lakers face the Phoenix Suns, the NBA’s top scoring team, to open a four-game road trip. If one play summed up Friday night, it came after the Lakers had closed to 104-96 with 31/2 minutes remaining. They had to get a stop, but miscommunication allowed Kevin Martin to get open for an uncontested dunk off a Brad Miller pass which put the Kings up 10. Kobe Bryant finished with 30 points and 10 assists in 40 minutes while Odom had 26 points, 13 rebounds and six assists. Odom totaled 13 points and nine rebounds in the fourth quarter, but the Lakers dug themselves an insurmountable hole. Mike Bibby led Sacramento with 33 points, while Martin had 20 and Ron Artest – who shaved “KINGS” into his head, with a star in the G – added 19 points. Aaron McKie hit his first six shots and had 12 points off the bench for the Lakers. last_img read more
