first_imgVesnaandjic/iStock(HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif.) — More than 200 protestors gathered in Huntington Beach, California, in what was the latest demonstration in the United States against stay-at-home orders under the novel coronavirus pandemic.The “March for Freedom” event took place Friday afternoon at the intersection of Walnut and Main streets in the downtown area of Huntington Beach, about 40 miles southeast of Los Angeles.Some protestors held signs reading “Quarantine the sick, not the healthy!” and “Open Cali now.” One protestor wore what appeared to be a faux hazmat suit, donning a sign that said the virus was a “lie.” The event described itself as a march for “freedom, liberty and reopening the California economy.”Like other demonstrations across the country, some protestors struck a partisan tone and waved “Trump 2020” flags.Police said in a statement they were called to the scene and that while it was initially small, “it quickly grew to a group of over 200 people.”“We are asking our community and those that visit Huntington Beach to remember we are under an Executive Order by the State, which specifically states all residents of California should stay at home in an effort to help flatten the curve in regard to community spread of COVID-19,” Huntington Police said in a statement. “The more people are out and gathered in groups, the more COVID-19 will spread in our community and endanger lives.”Police noted that they understood “emotions are high and many are frustrated with the current Executive Order.” No arrests were made at the protest, police said.A stay-at-home order is in effect in California until further notice. The majority of the states in the U.S. have adopted some form of a lockdown to curb the spread of the coronavirus, or COVID-19.There are at least 706,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. and at least 37,000 deaths, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.Earlier this week, other protests took place in Michigan, Kentucky, Minnesota, Virginia, Utah, North Carolina and Ohio.President Donald Trump has responded to the protests, saying that “it’s been a tough process for people.”“You know, I told you, there’s death and there’s problems and staying at home too. It’s not just, isn’t it wonderful to stay at home,” Trump told ABC News’ Chief White House Correspondent Jon Karl on Thursday.Though Trump said at one point governors would be “empowered” to make their own plans for reopening their states, he struck a much different tone less than 24 hours later.“LIBERATE MINNESOTA!” “LIBERATE MICHIGAN!” and “LIBERATE VIRGINIA, and save your great 2nd Amendment. It is under siege!” the president tweeted on Friday morning.California Gov. Gavin Newsom has not responded to the protests directly, but he did tweet Friday urging people to stay home.“CA is flattening the curve — but we MUST continue to take this seriously. Stay home. Practice physical distancing,” Newsom wrote.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

first_img Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Five games into the season, he’s batting .471.“Maybe it just got me to say, ‘look, keep it simple.’ I’ve got a lot of other stuff going on, so when I’m at the field, all this other stuff I used to do, just put that aside,” Pollock said. “It’s like a pickup game of basketball. You go up there and compete. I feel pretty good up there. I feel like I can compete against the pitcher and put up some good at-bats.”Pollock’s two-run home run in the first inning against former teammate Robbie Ray (0-2) staked the Dodgers to a 3-0 lead. Corey Seager homered in the second inning to put the Dodgers ahead 4-0. By the sixth inning, the Dodgers led 6-1 and Ross Stripling (2-0) was well on the way to his second victory of the young season.Max Muncy went 2 for 4 and hit a solo home run of his own against left-handed reliever Alex Young. The Dodgers are 3-0 since leaving home for a three-city road trip and 5-2 this season.Stripling allowed four hits and three runs in 5 ⅓ innings. He walked two batters and struck out two. Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Until the Dodgers acquired Mookie Betts from the Red Sox in February, A.J. Pollock was slated to be the team’s highest-paid outfielder. His $15 million salary is more than that of Cody Bellinger, the reigning National League MVP, and Joc Pederson, who hit 36 home runs last year.For Pollock, who trudged through 86 games in an injury-plagued 2019 season, the 2020 season came with something to prove.Then sports took a back seat to life. One week after spring training was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic, Pollock began what he called a “wild ride.” His daughter, Maddi Mae, was born prematurely. In June, he tested positive for COVID-19. It wasn’t until last Saturday that his daughter was allowed to come home, 128 days into her young life.PreviousLos Angeles Dodgers’ Max Muncy waits his turn to bat against the Arizona Diamondbacks during the fourth inning of the Diamondbacks’ home opener baseball game Thursday, July 30, 2020, in Phoenix.

(AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin)ExpandParadoxically, all the turmoil helped Pollock focus on baseball. He went 2 for 5 with a home run and a double Thursday in the Dodgers’ 6-3 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. Starling Marte flied out to end a 14-pitch at-bat against Stripling in the bottom of the first inning. Ketel Marte’s solo home run in the third inning put the Diamondbacks on the board. Other than that, Stripling found little trouble until the sixth inning, when he hit Starling Marte with a pitch and allowed a run-scoring double by Christian Walker.“I was able to kind of keep my energy and strength throughout the outing, which I am encouraged by,” Stripling said. “There’s not a ton of swing and miss with this lineup. … I felt like my stuff was good. I held them at bay through five. Overall I feel good about the outing.”With David Price opting out of the season and Alex Wood on the injured list with shoulder inflammation – Manager Dave Roberts said Wood has been prohibited from throwing for a week – Stripling figures to remain in the rotation for most of a 60-game regular season. That’s fine with the 30-year-old right-hander, who has shuffled between the rotation and the bullpen his entire career.“(Starting) is kind of the best gig in the big leagues for sure,” Stripling said.Adam Kolarek, Joe Kelly, Brusdar Graterol and Pedro Baez worked 3 2/3 innings of scoreless relief. Baez was credited with his second career save.Pollock’s first home run of the season traveled an estimated 384 feet, according to MLB’s Statcast system. He doubled off Ray to begin the fifth inning and scored on a groundout by Seager, who finished with two RBIs.“I think I’ve gotten better and better at (compartmentalizing),” Pollock said. “I’ve had injuries. It’s kind of a similar situation with what’s happened with my daughter, trying to get her through the hospital. My wife’s frustrated. It’s day after day in a hospital. I’ve taken everything day by day, not getting too up or too down, getting your work done and not dwelling on stuff.“The situation I’ve been in, it’s forced me to put stuff behind me pretty quick. I’ve learned a lot.”Related Articles Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season last_img read more

first_img4. College Football playoffs… Speaking of Condolezza Rice, she was part of the College Football Playoff committee who selected the top four teams in the playoff system which ended up being No. 1 Alabama vs. No. 4 Ohio State and No. 2 Oregon vs. No. 3 Florida State. I’m not sure why Rice is involved. This all seems beneath her.My top four teams would have been: 1. Oregon, 2. Alabama, 3. TCU, 4. Baylor. But I’m just a little bald headed old man from Wellington, Kansas. Of course the CFP committee won’t give two hoots to what I have to say.I miss the old days when the conference champions played one another on New Years Day. But this new system is great. Division 1 football has obviously needed a playoff system for years. Now it has one.Now it seems like there isn’t enough. Soon we will have eight playoff team. It will soon have 16. I’m guessing in 10 years.And I can’t wait. A 16-team playoff system would be astronomically fun. It would be better than the NFL. 5. Shout out of the week…To the Christmas shoppers who give our local retailers a nod this holiday season. After all Wellington, this is your town.Follow us on Twitter. 3. Linn Hibbs…Linn HibbsIf I was Barbara Walters and was picking out “10 of the most fascinating characters I ever covered in my journalism profession,” former Wellington football coach Linn Hibbs would most certainly be on it.Hibbs resigned from Shawnee Mission Northwest with a 7-21 record this week. I felt bad, because his legacy in Wellington has been cemented here. Too bad another school district was unable to take advantage what he had to offer.It is hard to speculate what may have gone wrong at Shawnee Mission Northwest because I’m not there. But it seemed like a no win situation from the start. The Cougars were part of the Sunflower League that sports the best teams in Class 6A where recruiting amongst public schools is rampant, SM-Northwest is a soccer school, and it might have not been a good fit from the start. Hibbs aggressive style of coaching might work in Wellington but may have not been as effective in the Kansas City suburban school. That’s just my educated guess.I hope the best for Hibbs and hope he continues to coach, because we know what happens when he has the talent and the support of the community to make it work. And nobody gave a better Crusader Club speech than Mr. Hibbs. 2. Honor’s classes… Essentially, Rice said, “school should compete to be good.” And that reminds me how important offering honor’s classes are to high schools — not just for the students but to the schools itself. Sometimes it is all about perception.Of all the controversies the Wellington school board has been involved in the past four years, how it handled the honors program and the weighted grade point average has angered me the most.Two summers ago, the board had dropped the locally instituted honors program, upon the recommendation of then Wellington High School Principal Dale Adams and did so with little forewarning to the teachers teaching that class or the students taking those courses.Since that point Adams and USD 353 have initiated a few advanced placement honors classes which is a good thing. But there was a year there when there was none for students to take. How do you explain that to children trying to get into a four-year institution – who will be sending a student transcript without an honors class?I do like the fact more AP classes are offered but it is essential USD 353 continue to move forward with offering more challenging educational opportunities for our students – especially those who need those classes to achieve their goals.center_img by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Five Cueball thoughts for Dec. 7, 2014 – i.e. Pearl Harbor Day…1. Condoleeza Rice…My idea of a rock concert? I would have loved to shake my booty last Thursday night to Condoleezza Rice at the Wellington Area Chamber of Commerce annual meeting at Century II in Wichita.Condolezza RiceRice is infinitely smarter than the Commander in Chief she worked for and should be the first woman U.S. President – although it is more likely to go to you-know-who.Rice made an interesting point during her speech (see story here). She stated the biggest threat there is to national security is the disparity of K-12 education and she prescribed vouchers at least as a temporary solution. Rice also said she can still look at a ZIP code and tell which students will get a quality education and which won’t. I have long advocated vouchers — not so much for wealthy parents — but for those who can’t afford a private education otherwise. Vouchers will inevitably serve notice to the public school system and force it to step up its game.In Wellington, I’m not sure vouchers will have much of an effect. We do not have a private high school. We do have the Wellington Christian Academy – an excellent private school for Kindergarten through eighth grade. But I don’t perceive a mass exodus of students from the public school system with vouchers here for a couple of reasons: 1) Our public elementary schools are good schools; 2) Those who want to go to WCA are already attending WCA.Now if WCA was to expand to a high school, you may see significant movement with vouchers – not because our high school is bad, but there is a tendency for parents to want a private education for a myriad of reasons I can’t even begin to touch here.Vouchers will definitely hurt the “bad” public school systems – like those in Wichita. The thing I like best about vouchers is it gives every student the right for a quality education. And every U.S. student “should” have that right. Close Forgot password?

Nothing against those that want their child to have a private education but some of the best learning has nothing to do with books but people. How about the state just fund education responsibly and watch it work.

Why is it a sure thing that students will receive a quality education at a private school? What do you base your opinion on? I think Ms. Rice’s statement of being able to tell the quality of our education by the zip code is an assumption…..and you know what happens when we assume, right?

I can not afford to send him to private school. I wish I knew what the solution was.

The state constitution prohibits funding private education if the organization of it, is to teach in any way religion. Even though the CA is privately funded and not through any religious institution that I know of, it still teaches the precepts of Christianity.

Stop promoting students who can’t read or do basic math facts. Grade on a bell curve – there shouldn’t be dozens of straight A students. It’s not going to be as popular as the “everyone medals” mindset, but it couldn’t possibly produce worse results.

However, they do have 4 or 5 former players that have been drafted into the NFL over the past 15 years(a couople actually have Super Bowl rings). Something NO other SMSD school can say. The NW area also has a number of fathers that have acually played college football at top 25 D-1 schools, not to mention the fathers from lower D-1 and 1aa and D-II This makes it very hard to tell parents that they really are not seeing what they are seeing on the field.
