Ex-Nebraska clerk praised for tornado work gets prison term

first_imgSTANTON , Neb. (AP) — A former northeastern Nebraska village clerk who was praised for her work in helping rebuild her community following a 2014 tornado strike has been sentenced to prison for stealing from the village. The Norfolk Daily News reports that 58-year-old Kimberly Neiman was sentenced Monday to three years in prison. The former Pilger clerk was arrested last year on multiple felony counts. In a deal with prosecutors, she pleaded guilty in November to one count of attempted theft in exchange for all other counts being dropped. Neiman was fired by the village board in February 2019, following a state audit that found more than $562,000 in questionable transactions and more than $156,000 in suspicious charges on the village’s credit card.last_img

Permit contact

first_imgThe Georgia Soil and Water Conservation Commission needs updated contact information for farmers who use irrigation in the Suwannee and Ochlockonee watershed in south-central Georgia. The University of Georgia Cooperative Extension can help provide it, says a UGA water specialist.Farmers there and across the state are required to place meters on their permitted wells to tally their water usage, said Kerry Harrison, a UGA Extension irrigation engineer. If the SWCC can catch up with them, the state will cover the cost ($1,000 per meter per well).The SWCC generally sends postcards to permit holders a year ahead to let them know about the meter installations in an area, he said. It’s now time to mail those cards to farmers in the Suwannee and Ochlockonee region.The Georgia Department of Natural Resources has an estimated 9,000 permits in the area. All contain contact addresses, but most are outdated rural-route numbers, he said. Those have since been changed to Emergency 911 addresses. But the changes were never shared with DNR.The SWCC wants the updated contact information for at least half the permit holders in the area by June 30. In 2003, UGA Extension agents within the Flint River Basin in southwest Georgia helped with a similar process. Less rushed, the update there took about four years to complete, Harrison said.Funding for this initiative was approved in late January. Depending on the actual number of updated contacts, the initiative will cost between $750,000 and $1.2 million. The money will pay for extra work hours and tools the county agents will need. “The agents already have full plates,” Harrison said. “They need extra resources to get this done within the time frame.”Along with updating addresses, UGA Extension agents will locate the water withdrawal site for each permit. That information will be given to Albany State University in Albany, Ga., to map the area irrigated with the permit.”The use of water in agricultural crop production is a very important element to ensure yields and subsequent farm profits,” Harrison said. “Hopefully, this effort to update agricultural permit contact information will not intrude on any farming operation.”UGA Extension covers information delivery from the UGA colleges of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and Family and Consumer Sciences to all 159 Georgia counties. Almost all counties have offices.The same system can be used to provide another government agency information, too, especially one that wants to improve lives or save folks money, Harrison said.Government agencies work best when they pool resources to aid Georgia citizens, he said. But the bureaucratic process can seem muddled, if not comical at times.”Hello, I’m with the gov’ment, and I’m here to help,” Harrison has joked about the initiative and the process when explaining it at meetings. But the initiative is serious. It’s sparked by the “Water Wars,” a decade-old negotiation between Georgia, Alabama and Florida over shared water rights.One skirmish in 2003 resulted in Georgia House Bill 579. It called for all agricultural water users to have a meter installed by 2009. The SWCC was given the task of implementing the metering program.”This effort is being undertaken so agriculture’s right to continue to use water in Georgia will be understood by other users of water in the state,” Harrison said.last_img read more

4 Teens Charged With Babylon Hate Crime Beating

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Four teenagers from Oceanside have been accused of physically attacking two men in what Suffolk County police said is being investigating as an alleged anti-gay hate crime in Babylon early Sunday morning.The suspects were walking on Deer Park Avenue when they asked the victims for directions to the Long Island Rail Road train station before the group jumped the duo at 3:30 a.m., police said.The alleged attackers punched, kicked and shoved the two men “while using slurs based on the suspects’ belief of the victims’ sexual orientation,” police said in news release. Police did not disclose the alleged slurs used.A witness called 911 and responding officers arrested 20-year-old Gregory Gilbert, Shane Buckley and Nicholas Battaglia, both 18, along with 17-year-old Justin Buckley.All four were charged with assault as a hate crime. Gilbert, Battaglia and Shane Buckley were also charged with gang assault. They will be arraigned at First District Court in Central Islip.The victims were taken to Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center in West Islip, where one was treated and released and the other victim was admitted in serious condition.David Kilmnick, CEO of the Long Island GLBT Services Network, called the allegations disturbing and frightening.“This incident reminds us that we need to be vigilant in combatting hate and homophobia and that there still is a tremendous amount of work to do to make our Long Island a safe and welcoming community for all gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people and families,” he said in a statement.Police are continuing the investigation.last_img read more

Long Island Man’s Alleged al Qaeda Recruiters Charged

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Federal prosecutors Tuesday unsealed a five-year-old criminal complaint accusing two Yemeni nationals of fighting for al Qaeda and helping Long Island-native Bryant Neal Vinas join the terrorist group in 2008.Saddiq Al-Abbadi, also known as Sufiyan al-Yemeni, and Ali Alivi, who also goes by the name Issa al-Yemeni, were both charged with conspiracy to murder United States nationals abroad and providing material support to al Qaeda. The federal complaint has been sealed since April 15, 2009.“There’s no escape from the reach of our law for violent terrorists, especially if they target our military,” Loretta Lynch, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, said in a statement.The pair was arrested in Saudi Arabia and brought to the US for trial, but the details of their apprehension and extradition were not available. Alvi appeared in federal court in Brooklyn on Sunday. Al-Abbadi’s first appearance is scheduled for Tuesday.Al-Abbadi and Alivi were both members of al Qaeda when they fought U.S. military forces stationed in Afghanistan, according to the court documents. In March 2008, the men traveled to the tribal areas of Pakistan, where they hoped to train and fight with al Qaeda, according to the federal complaint. It was during that time that they met Vinas and helped him join al Qaeda, court documents state.Credit: Federal Detention LetterVinas, who was raised Roman Catholic in Patchogue, was arrested by Pakistani police in 2008 and brought back to the United States. He has since pleaded guilty to helping the group plan an attack on the Long Island Rail Road. Vinas is one of four Long Islanders federal authorities have linked to al Qaeda: two were arrested before traveling abroad, and another, Samir Khan, was never indicted but he was killed in a drone strike in Yemen.It has been widely reported that Vinas, who still has yet to be sentenced, has been cooperating with authorities since 2008. The federal complaint is largely built on testimony from an unnamed cooperating witness who traveled to Pakistan in 2007 intending to join al Qaeda but was initially rebuffed by the organization. But Vinas is named in a federal detention letter associated with the case.In December 2007, the unnamed witness was taken to an al-Qaeda safe house in South Waziristan and vetted for admission, according to court documents. Alvi was also in attendance. An al-Qaeda leader suspected that the witness was a spy and refused his request to join the group.In March 2008, the federal government’s witness was staying at the same house with both Alvi and Al-Abbadi and learned that they were both members of al Qaeda, according to court documents. Al-Abbadi allegedly boasted about his time on the battlefield to the witness, displaying a scar and playing a video that showed him celebrating along with other fighters after a “successful attack,” the documents state.The two men and the witness apparently bonded. With the pair’s help, the witness had gained entry into al Qaeda, according to court documents. Vinas is the only American named in court documents who joined al Qaeda.During this time, Al-Abbadi and Alvi traveled from Pakistan to Afghanistan to conduct attacks against US military personnel, according to the complaint. Al-Abbadi is accused of leading a battle against US forces in Paktya Province in May 2008. A U.S. Army Ranger was killed and several others were wounded in the battle.Alvi eventually grew dissatisfied with al Qaeda senior leadership and left to join the Taliban. The facts of their arrest are still unclear.last_img read more

Severity of TB case in health scare downgraded

first_imgJul 5, 2007 (CIDRAP News) – Experts have concluded that the Atlanta man whose case of drug-resistant tuberculosis triggered an international health scare in May has a less dangerous form of the disease than was previously believed. The change in Speaker’s diagnosis was good news for him and his fellow airline passengers. But the lengthy Jul 3 news conference pointed up the lack of a foolproof test for distinguishing between MDR and XDR TB and put the CDC on the defensive concerning its testing procedures and response to the situation. May 29 CIDRAP News story “Airline trips by resistant-TB patient trigger alert” Cohen said the CDC became formally involved in the situation on May 18, when Georgia public health officials told the agency that a patient with MDR TB had traveled out of the country. The CDC began trying to locate Speaker at that point, though XDR TB wasn’t diagnosed until May 22, according to the CDC timetable of the episode. Much of the news conference focused on testing issues. The CDC concluded Speaker had XDR TB after testing a bronchoscopy sample that had been taken in March at an Atlanta hospital, said Dr. Mitchell Cohen, director of the CDC’s Coordinating Center for Infectious Diseases. The test involved the “agar proportion method,” which is approved by the Clinical Laboratory Standards Institute, he said. Against public health officials’ advice, Speaker, 31, flew from Atlanta to Paris for his wedding and honeymoon on May 12, when he was believed to have MDR TB. After learning on May 18 of his trip, the CDC tried to locate him and warn him not to travel on commercial flights because of the risk of exposing others, according to an agency timetable of the events. On May 22 a CDC test indicated he had XDR TB. The patient, Andrew Speaker, has multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR TB), not extensively drug-resistant TB (XDR TB), experts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and National Jewish Medical and Research Center (NJMRC) reported at a press conference on Jul 3. A few days later, on May 29, the CDC publicly announced the incident in an effort to alert people who had flown on the same transatlantic flights as Speaker so they could be tested for TB. Soon afterward, Speaker was flown to National Jewish Medical and Research Center in Denver, which specializes in treating respiratory diseases. Previously, Speaker’s doctors were considering removing part of one of his lungs to cure him. Now, said Daley, “We’ve put surgery on hold for the time being while we build a strong treatment regimen with drugs that we didn’t have available before.” “This discrepancy or discordance of results happens all the time in drug susceptibility testing, including reference labs,” he added. “It’s not a new thing. It’s a frustration that we have to deal with. I don’t know why the first result at the CDC showed XDR TB and ours did not. There are a number of ways this can happen.” Speaker, in a statement read at the news conference by NJMRC spokesman William Allstetter, described himself as “incredibly relieved” by the change in diagnosis. “The truth is that my condition is the same as it was in early May, back before there was a huge health scare,” he said. He has been described as not yet having any symptoms of the slow-growing infection, which was discovered as a result of an injury-related x-ray last January. “This was repeated at the CDC and they confirmed our findings of multidrug resistant disease,” Daley said. However, he said NJMRC is still waiting for test results on a sample taken from the bronchoscopy specimen in March. The cure rate for fully susceptible TB is 95% to 97%, versus about 70% for MDR TB, Cohen reported. “With XDR, the chances of being cured are probably 30 to 40%,” he said. He added, “Many people out there who may have been exposed have been hearing that no drugs are available. . . . Now we know that there is something we can do for them.” “The original sample is no longer available for retesting. All subsequent samples from induced sputums have shown MDR [TB],” Cohen added. Daley said NJMRC used three types of tests, including the agar proportion method, on at least three samples from Speaker. “Out of all the cultures doing it three different ways, the results were consistent,” he said. “We were very sure of our results that this is MDR, not XDR.” In response to a question, Cohen at one point said the test that led to the XDR TB diagnosis actually revealed a mix of MDR and XDR strains, with XDR the smaller proportion. He added that the test does not yield a “yes or no answer” and is very complicated, in part because of how slowly TB organisms grow. In response to questions, both Cohen and Daley repeatedly affirmed that the public health response is the same for MDR and XDR TB. “From a clinical perspective this [difference] is important, but from a public health perspective, no, there’s no difference between MDR and XDR,” said Daley. The CDC still wants those who were on transatlantic flights with Speaker to get follow-up TB tests, Cohen said. The agency previously recommended that those passengers undergo initial skin or blood tests and then be retested 8 to 10 weeks later, since an initial positive test could reflect an earlier exposure to TB. CDC transcript of Jul 3 teleconferencehttp://www.cdc.gov/media/transcripts/2007/t070703.htm Dr. Charles Daley of NJMRC said the earlier XDR diagnosis indicated that only two drugs would be likely to help Speaker, but the change to MDR means several more may work. “We went from at the end of May basically two drugs to now all but three or four,” he said. The finding means it will be easier to treat him because more drugs are likely to work, but the CDC would have issued an international alert even if it had known the true diagnosis when Speaker was traveling in Europe, potentially exposing other airline passengers to the deadly disease, officials said. Cohen noted that MDR TB is resistant to the most commonly used drugs (isoniazid and rifampin) and can be spread to others. “Therefore the public health actions that CDC took in this case . . . are sound and appropriate,” he said, adding that the World Health Organization’s recommendations regarding TB and airline travel are the same for MDR and XDR forms. In his statement, Speaker acknowledged that health authorities must take difficult steps to protect the public at times, but added, “With great power comes great responsibility. In the future I hope they realize the terrible chilling effect they can have when they come after someone and their family on a personal level. They can, in a few days, destroy an entire family’s reputation, ability to make a living, and good name.” Speaker has had several negative sputum smear tests for TB, suggesting that his chance of spreading the disease to others is fairly low, according to the NJMRC. He is still under an isolation order from Denver public health authorities, officials at the news conference said. He also expressed hope that the change in his diagnosis will calm the fears of those who flew with him and that the whole episode will focus more attention on TB, which he said accounts for a quarter of the world’s preventable deaths. Cohen stressed that although MDR TB is less dangerous than XDR, it is still difficult to treat, requiring 2 years of “relatively toxic” drug treatment. “It’s very different from drug-susceptible TB,” he said. See also: Daley later disagreed about the test showing both MDR and XDR strains. “They did not find XDR and MDR really in the specimen,” he said. “It’s a very technical and complicated test and in trying to simplify it, I’m not sure that happened.” But Speaker and his wife changed their itinerary to elude health authorities and, after several flights in Europe, flew from Prague to Montreal. They then rented a car and re-entered the United States. The CDC finally located him on May 25 and ordered him into isolation, the first such action by the agency since 1963.

Froome to leave Ineos for Israeli team after golden decade

first_imgSerious injuryAfter winning the Vuelta a Espana — for the second time — in 2017 and the Giro d’Italia in 2018 Froome held all three Grand Tour titles but his star has since waned.He was seriously injured when he crashed at the Criterium de Dauphine in June 2019 and spent months in rehabilitation, missing that year’s Tour de France.Froome’s teammate Thomas emerged as the 2018 winner of the Tour while Colombian protégé Bernal claimed the 2019 title when he was just 22.He only returned fully to the saddle in February this year at the UAE Tour, which was cut short due to the coronavirus pandemic.Earlier this year, Froome said his hunger for a fifth or even sixth Tour de France victory remained undiminished.”My dream is to retire having won more Tour de Frances than any other rider,” he told French daily L’Equipe.He needs one more to equal Eddy Merckx, Jacques Anquetil, Bernard Hinault and Miguel Indurain, who have all won it five times.This year’s Tour, postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic, is set to be raced from August 29 to September 20.Brailsford has overseen seven Tour de France wins with Team Sky and Team Ineos, with Bradley Wiggins claiming the first one in 2012.Team Sky, backed by Rupert Murdoch’s media empire, were known for Brailsford’s meticulous and innovative application of “marginal gains”, the theory that many small advantages in areas as diverse as wind resistance, diet and sleep quality can add up to a significant improvement in performance.However, their image was clouded in controversy over so-called therapeutic use exemptions. A damning British parliamentary report said the team crossed an “ethical line” by using the loophole to administer drugs to enhance performance.Sky were caught in a long-running doping controversy that began when Froome returned an adverse doping test, for elevated levels of the asthma medication salbutamol, on his way to victory in the Vuelta a Espana in 2017. He was cleared 10 months later.Froome said that during the 2015 Tour de France a cup of urine was thrown at him following accusations he was doping. He has always maintained he is a clean rider.Team Sky became Team Ineos last year to reflect their new sponsor, the chemicals giant owned by British billionaire Jim Ratcliffe.They have had plenty of detractors within cycling for tactics that many believe stifle racing.Their superior budget allowed them to employ riders who would be leaders elsewhere in a support capacity and effectively shut down attacks in the biggest races, something that has proved unpopular with many, particularly in the Tour de France. Israel Start-Up Nation will this year become the first Israeli team to compete in the Tour de France. The team, funded by Israeli-Canadian billionaire Sylvan Adams, took over the World Tour license of Swiss operation Katusha-Alpecin this year.”Chris is the best rider of his generation and will lead our Tour de France and Grand Tour squad,” said Adams.”We hope to make history together as Chris pursues further Tour de France and Grand Tour victories, achievements that would make a serious case for Chris to be considered the greatest cyclist of all time.” Chris Froome is to leave Team Ineos at the end of the season to join Israel Start-Up Nation, ending a decade-long partnership that produced four Tour de France wins.Froome, Britain’s most successful rider, won the Tour de France four times in five years from 2013 in the colours of Team Sky, which last year became Team Ineos.Team Ineos boss Dave Brailsford hailed seven-time Grand Tour winner Froome as a “great champion” but said it was the right time to part ways.  He said Froome, 35, was keen to have sole team leadership but Team Ineos, with fellow Tour de France winners Geraint Thomas and Egan Bernal in their ranks, were unable to give that guarantee.”Chris’s current contract comes to an end in December and we have taken the decision now not to renew it,” Brailsford said.Kenya-born Froome said: “It has been a phenomenal decade with the team. We have achieved so much together and I will always treasure the memories. “I look forward to exciting new challenges as I move into the next phase of my career but in the meantime my focus is on winning a fifth Tour de France with Team Ineos.” Topics :last_img read more

Dorothy Jean (Amrhein) Boyle, of Newberry, FL, and formerly of Brookville, IN

first_imgDorothy Jean (Amrhein) Boyle, of Newberry, FL, and formerly of Brookville, IN, was born on March 6, 1928 in Brookville, a daughter to Clarence and Anetia (Kuehn) Amrhein.Dorothy grew up on her parents’ farm in Brookville, along with her six siblings.  She learned housekeeping skills and worked on the farm, milking cows and harvesting produce and crops.  As a young adult, she worked at Rex Manufacturing Company in Connersville, IN, and at the Jay Garment Company in Brookville, where she sewed clothes.Dorothy first encountered her future husband, Marvin Boyle, at Brookville High School.  They were married on February 5, 1951, in Biloxi, MS, where Marvin was stationed in the Air Force.  In 1959, they moved to Bradenton, FL, due to a job opportunity for Marvin.  Dorothy was a homemaker there and also a waitress at a local diner.  Upon Marvin’s retirement from the Merchant Marine, they moved to Live Oak, FL, where she assisted with managing a 64 acre farm on which they raised quarter horses for racing and rodeo.  Eventually, needing to downsize, they moved to Newberry, FL, in 2016, with their youngest daughter, Arlene, and her family.Over the years, Dorothy enjoyed country music, embroidery, sewing, bingo, playing cards, and enjoying family and friends.  She loved traveling to various places around the country and world, and visited every place (except Korea) where her oldest daughter, April, was stationed in the Army.  Dorothy also traveled with her youngest daughter, Arlene and granddaughter, Kayla to barrel races and rodeos around the country.  She loved the many times that she took her daughters back to Brookville to visit family.  Dorothy was a life-long Catholic, and very dedicated to her faith.On Thursday, April 30, at the age of 92, Dorothy passed on at Ayers Health and Rehab Center in Trenton, FL, with her daughters at her side.Those surviving who will cherish her memory include two daughters, Arlene (Larry) Price of Newberry, FL, and April Boyle (Elizabeth Feeser) of Harrison, OH, one granddaughter, Kayla J. Price of Newberry, FL, one sister, Don Lou (Harold) Back, one brother, Ray (Evelyn) Amrhein, and 19 nieces and nephews.  She was preceded in death by her husband of 67 years, Marvin Boyle, her parents, and sisters Ruth Kirschner, Norma Knecht, Rita Riehle, and Betty Glaub.A private rosary and service will be held at the funeral home Friday for immediate family and graveside services will follow in Maple Grove Cemetery at 2:30.Any memorial contributions can be directed to the Shrine of St Jude in Chicago, or to St Jude Children’s Research Hospital at www.shrineofstjude.org and www.stjude.org respectively.  To sign the online guestbook, please visit www.cookrosenberger.com.  A Mass and dinner will be scheduled at a later date due to COVID-19 restrictions.last_img read more
