Vevay, IN—Bourbon leaking from a Jim Beam warehouse destroyed by fire Tuesday, in Kentucky, is making its way to the Ohio River near Vevay. Kentucky State environmental officials say they’re assessing wildlife impacts and doing fish kill counts along the waterways.The Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet stated in a release on social media that an “alcohol plume” from the bourbon runoff in the Kentucky River is approximately 23 miles long. They stated the bourbon should dissipate very quickly once it reaches the much larger body of water.Officials estimated about 45,000 barrels of bourbon were destroyed in the fire that started Tuesday.
Published on September 25, 2018 at 11:39 pm Contact Matt: [email protected] Florida State’s A.J. Westbrook towered over Nykeim Johnson. Westbrook, at 6-feet and 190 pounds, stood larger than the 5-foot-8, 163-pound Johnson. But that didn’t matter.After catching a bubble route, Westbrook tried to tackle Johnson near the line of scrimmage. But the slot receiver lowered his body and bulldozed through Westbrook, who could only watch the remainder of the play from his back.“You get a guy that size, you throw him a horizontal bubble and the first thing he does is run over a guy,” Syracuse head coach Dino Babers said. “I mean we got big guys that don’t run over guys. Here we’ve got a little guy running over a big guy and pushing it into a bigger run.”Johnson was tackled seven yards after the broken tackle at the ankles by 6-foot-3, 215-pound defensive back Jaiden Woodbey, but not before the Carrier Dome crowd erupted following Johnson’s trucking of Westbrook. Johnson has never let his size slow him. He’s only used it for motivation. But after suffering an injury during training camp, he didn’t have any idea that he’d be making this sort of impact early on in the season.In 2018, Johnson ranks third for Syracuse (4-0, 1-0 Atlantic Coast) in receiving yards. He ranked first when counting only the three games Johnson has played in. Despite not playing against Western Michigan, Johnson has been graded the fifth best receiver in the ACC by Pro Football Focus this season.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text After what Babers called a great spring training camp, Johnson was injured for much of the fall camp, unable to practice with the team. A pulled hamstring sidelined him for a month and a half, Johnson said, even forcing him to miss the season opener against Western Michigan.For weeks, Johnson couldn’t run routes and compete in game drills. While the rest of the receiving corps worked on developing chemistry with quarterbacks Eric Dungey and Tommy DeVito, Johnson rehabbed with lots of icing, heating and stretching, he said.“When I first got hurt it was really nerve-wracking,” Johnson said. “But I really had to just keep pushing, keep fighting every day, going to get rehab, going to get treatment, just making sure I was staying on top of the hamstring.”Laura Angle | Digital Design EditorWhat separates Johnson from other receivers is his speed and quickness. He’s a jitterbug, Babers said. Being just 5-foot-8, Johnson doesn’t have the same luxuries as 6-foot-5 Jamal Custis, where quarterbacks can just throw the ball upward in his direction because he towers over defensive backs. Johnson needs separation.“I know I’m not the biggest guy,” Johnson said, “so I have to check every little box and work on everything I can.”While hurt, Johnson couldn’t train his mobility. Instead, he only worked on his hands. So every day Johnson tested his press release — using his hands and leverage to create separation from defenders at the line of scrimmage — and his pass catching. Johnson sat stationary, having balls fed to him all over.When his hamstring healed near the end of fall camp, Johnson worked on his speed and quickness to get back into game shape. He ran long sprints, stop and start routes, anything he could to catch up to the rest of the unit. He worked extra with Dungey to build the chemistry needed between quarterback and receiver.After sitting out against Western Michigan, Johnson opened the 2018 season leading all SU receivers with 65 yards against Wagner. Having an extra weapon helped spread out the offense, Dungey said. Against Western Michigan, Custis was the only wide receiver with a catch. Against Wagner, six different wideouts caught passes, not including tight ends and running backs. Against Florida State, that number was four and against UConn it swelled back to six.Johnson is somewhat unpredictable for opposing defenses. With his size, teams may expect him to be used in the roles that his teammate Sean Riley is in. Standing 5-foot-8, Riley is used in many bubble and slant routes for short catches across the middle and on the edges. But Johnson is used everywhere. Against Florida State, Johnson drew a pass interference call racing down the sideline going up to fight in the air against multiple 6-foot tall defenders. Later, he caught a ball in the backfield before bullying through Westbrook.“(He’s) going out there and playing with the big dogs,” Babers said. “As a coach you have to appreciate that and as a teammate you have to appreciate that.”Dungey certainly does.“He plays like he’s 6’4”,” Dungey said.

8 Mar 2013 Burlison’s title hopes are sunk at Kingswood Robert Burlison was denied a maiden overseas victory when he lost a sudden death playoff for the Kenako South African World Juniors at Kingswood in George. South Africa’s Jade Buitendag took the title on the first extra hole after both players shot a closing 68 to finish on 210, six under par, two strokes clear of the rest of the field for the 54-hole World Junior Series event. On the first playoff hole, the par five tenth, Staffordshire’s Burlison played safe off the tee. It seemed a good decision when Buitendag drove his ball into one of the deep fairway bunkers. However, Burlison cut his second shot into water short and right of the green, which allowed Buitendag to splash out of the sand and play his third shot onto the green. After Burlison had taken a penalty drop, he again missed the green right but managed to chip and sink a fairly long putt for a one over par six, which meant Buitendag had two putts to win, which he was able to do. Buitendag, from East London, held a two-shot lead playing the par-five 16th hole and at that stage was five under par for his round. However, the 16th proved a pivotal moment as Buitendag dropped a shot and Burlison birdied, leaving the pair level on six under with two holes to play. Burlison hit his second shot through the green on the 17th but then played an exquisite chip from the downhill lie to tap in distance for par. Buitendag two-putted for par and on the last both boys played excellent shots into a very tough back pin position. After Burlison had missed his birdie attempt, Buitendag’s 15-footer for victory shaved the hole which set up the play-off. England’s other representative, Bobby Keeble from Essex, finished joint 36th on 227, 11 over par. Burlison became the second England player in less than a week to be denied an overseas title following Neil Raymond’s defeat in the final of the Spanish International Amateur at La Manga last weekend. Leading final scores 210 J Buitendag (SA) 71 71 68, R Burlison (Eng) 72 70 68 (Buitendag won playoff at 1st extra hole); 212 P Kruse (SA) 74 71 67, B Follett-Smith (Zim) 72 69 71, HP van der Merwe (SA) 68 73 71. Other English score: 227 R Keeble 75 78 74
Martens, of Neptune, also believed a cultural change is underway. Fewer people are smoking and it’s for the better, he said.“You don’t see ashtrays in cars anymore, do you?” Martens questioned.Some people, though, think the law could be overreaching. That was Peter Lehmann’s opinion, a German citizen who was concluding a three-week tour of the East Coast at the Jersey Shore. He happened to be finishing a Seneca cigarette before paying the beach entrance fee.“It’s a bizarre thing,” said Lehmann. “We have seen all over the United States that it’s quite complicated.”“(Smokers) have to compromise all the time,” he added, “but to make it completely banned is too much.”This article was first published in the July 26-Aug. 2, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times. By Jay Cook | SEA BRIGHT – Melissa D’Anna was never a fan of smoking on the beach. And that was before she recently stepped on two lit cigarettes while giving surfing lessons in Long Branch.“It’s just a nuisance,” said D’Anna, the owner of Lucky Dog Surf Co. in downtown Sea Bright. “If you want to hurt yourself and your life, it’s your choice. But do it elsewhere.”D’Anna is just one of the many Two River-area residents who applauded a new state law signed by Gov. Phil Murphy last week that will ban smoking and vaping on all public beaches and parks across New Jersey. It’s set to go into effect in January 2019.Alongside other state officials in Long Branch July 20, Murphy said the law is designed to address public health issues and environmental concerns. “The Jersey Shore has always been one of the state’s, and indeed our nation’s, great natural treasures and a place for families,” said Murphy. “Today, we’re only strengthening our commitment to the Shore.”The bill is an extension of the New Jersey Smoke-Free Air Act of 2006 which prohibited smoking at any indoor public space or workplace. Smokers will no longer be allowed to light up on any municipal, county or state beach, park or forest.First-time offenders could be fined $250. A second offense may cost $500 and any subsequent time after that can cost $1,000.Municipalities and counties, however, can use local legislation to set up a designated smoking area not exceeding 15 percent of the beach. While there is some leeway designed in the law, it’s still a win for “fish and families,” said Cindy Zipf, executive director of Clean Ocean Action. Her organization conducts two beach sweeps annually and removed over 29,000 cigarette filters, 7,000 cigar tips, 1,100 lighters and 1,000 cigarette packs from nature just last year.“A lot of people just view their world as an ashtray,” Zipf told The Two River Times this week. “But no longer is the beach going to be one.”Some areas would be exempt from this legislation. The private beach clubs lining Ocean Avenue in Sea Bright wouldn’t have to adhere, said Zipf. It would be up to the individual club to put a ban in.“It would be interesting to see if this would be a way for them to choose to either take part or not,” Zipf said of the beach clubs. “This is a step in the right direction.” The same goes for national parks, like Gateway National Recreation Area where Sandy Hook is located. Guidelines dictated by the National Park Service only prohibit smoking within 25 feet of and inside any enclosed structure, as well as inside government-owned cars and boats.Some beachgoers who spent the afternoon in Sea Bright this week were receptive to the new legislation, like Doug Rice, 62, of Rumson.“No matter where you are, somebody’s going to be down-wind,” he said, before hopping back on his bicycle. “The other (bad) thing is the butts that go in the sand all the time.”Mel Martens, who was working a shift at Giglio’s Bait & Tackle, welcomed the ban.“Being a former smoker and knowing people that’ve smoked for 50 years, having a designated area would make sense to me,” he added.
De Visser: I told Chelsea – do not lose Hudson-Odoiby Paul Vegasa day agoSend to a friendShare the loveChelsea adviser Piet de Visser has claimed former manager Maurizio Sarri was instructed to play Callum Hudson-Odoi last season.Sarri faced backlash from supporters and critics alike over his refusal to play Hudson-Odoi, who handed in a transfer request in attempt to join Bayern Munich.He recently a new long-term contract, and De Visser has hinted Sarri’s departure may have influenced that decision.”I enjoy young players. Lampard gives six or seven boys of the academy opportunities. That is the future,” de Visser told De Volkskrant.”Hudson-Odoi, he didn’t want to sign.”I told Chelsea: never lose Hudson-Odoi. He will be the new Hazard. But Marina [Granovskaia, Chelsea chief executive] said: he doesn’t want to sign.”And you know why not? Because Sarri didn’t play him. Then Sarri was instructed to deploy him, and he was their best player. And he signed for four [sic] years.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say

Priscilla WolfAPTN NewsFormer prime minister Paul Martin was on hand to launch a new project in Ile a la Crosse, Sask. called the Green House Project.The project is part of the Martin Family Initiative that has been working with schools across Canada for almost a decade.Martins says he sees Indigenous youth as an investment for Canada.“The Green House Project hopes to address many issue related to food, food security, and horticulture that disproportionately affects Indigenous Peoples and their communities,” Martin said. “The Greenhouse Project is a school- based program that introduces students to horticulture through hands on lessons and practices.“It seeks to complement a number of existing course areas for high school students including entrepreneurship, science, math, and nutrition.”The goal is to get the high school students skilled at growing their own food and sharing it with the community and area by using their entrepreneurial skills by building a business.“We all understand that food in the north is expensive and that often times whether its fresh vegetables or fresh fruit those things are not available as a result we have said one of the things we got to do in an entrepreneurial way is to build greenhouses,” said Martin. Green houses that can use solar energy and can be spread throughout the north that will create food security.”Youth in the community like Jeremy Corrigal, the local Junior mayor and president of the Students Representatives Council sees this upcoming Green House Project as encouraging for his community.“It’s a huge step in our community with making more partnerships with more people around the province and around the country.“It’s a big step for our school in general and getting the former prime minister of Canada here and helping us and being a partner with us that just an honour our community is that much more.”Jim Durocher, local president of the A la Bale Metis Local 21 says the project is important.“We are an isolated community. The Green House Project will allow students and participating community members to explore the usage of more advanced technology to sustain year-round growth,” he said.Durocher also thinks junk food has contributed to high rates in diabetes in his community.He sees this as a way to return to traditions and healthy eating.The program was developed with the input of Elders, leaders, educators and the business community to meet all the criteria for the students and [email protected]
