Nature’s latest punch kept Highway Department crews busy around the clock

first_imgJACKSBORO, TN (WLAF) – Two weekends ago, it was high flood waters, washed out roads and pipelines.  “This past weekend, downed trees and a county-wide storm were just as equally challenging because of the size of the trees,” said Campbell County Road Superintendent Ron Dilbeck.Dilbeck adds, “We had more than 50 trees down, mainly from the southern part of the county to the eastern part which is Oak Grove to Flat Hollow.  Eighty-percent of those trees were large trees that took utility lines down.”There were five crews working around the clock beginning before midnight Friday night.  A lot of the limbs and debris is piled up on edge of roadways around the county.  Beginning this morning, Campbell County Highway Department crews will be concentrating on picking up those limbs and debris this week.“Thanks to LUB for their continuous help,” said Dilbeck.  He also expressed appreciation to CCHD crews for their around the clock efforts.  (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 06/24/2019-6AM – PHOTOS COURTESY OF ROAD SUPER RON DILBECK)Share this:FacebookTwitterlast_img read more

Leicester City player says ‘yes’ to old club, Foxes not stopping…

first_imgNewspaper A Bola claims that when contacted by the Lions about the possibility of a comeback, the striker has responded with a positive answer.Slimani knows he’s not staying at Fenerbahce, where he has five goals in 25 appearances this season. And he’s not wanted by manager Brendan Rodgers at Leicester City either.A Bola says the Foxes are also in favour of the operation, and shouldn’t put obstacles in a deal which involves a loan with a buying option.Embed from Getty ImagesBut there’s still an issue in all this, which is Slimani’s salary. The newspaper claims that the striker currently makes €2.5m net per season, and Sporting can’t afford that.Slimani knows about the Lions’ situation, and would even take a pay cut. That’s why he will wait and see how far can the Lisbon side go in terms of wages. Leicester City loanee Islam Slimani has said ‘yes’ to a return to Sporting, according to the Portuguese media this Thursday. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

Ravens rule out Gillmore, three others for Thursday night

first_img(Updated: 2:30 p.m.)OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Desperate for their first win of the 2015 season as they face a daunting trip to Pittsburgh on Thursday night, the Ravens will be be without their No. 2 option in the passing game.Second-year tight end Crockett Gillmore (calf), left tackle Eugene Monroe (concussion), defensive end Chris Canty (calf), and wide receiver Breshad Perriman all were officially ruled out on Wednesday afternoon. Even before the official designation, the Ravens weren’t exactly giving a strong impression that Gillmore would be ready to return against the Steelers.“With Crockett being out, we have some young tight ends that we really love to coach,” offensive coordinator Marc Trestman said on Tuesday. “We love the development that they’re going through right now. We expect them to step up and play well for us.”After registering three catches for 40 yards in the first two quarters of Sunday’s loss to Cincinnati, Gillmore did not play an offensive snap after halftime as the combination of Maxx Williams and Nick Boyle took his place. The rookies combined to register five receptions for 63 yards on nine targets in the 28-24 loss to the Bengals.A passing game struggling to find reliable answers beyond No. 1 wideout Steve Smith can hardly afford to be without Gillmore, but head coach John Harbaugh expressed much confidence in Williams and Boyle to be able to pick up the slack.“I thought they both played really well. I thought they both did a really good job,” Harbaugh said. “These two guys are not two guys that it’s too big for [them]. They love being out there, and they just want to make plays. They’re tough, competitive. They’re physical. They kind of remind me of Crockett a year ago.”After being listed as a limited participant in light practices on Monday and Tuesday, Monroe was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday as he continues to go through the league’s concussion protocol. James Hurst is expected to make his third straight start.The second-year lineman has struggled mightily this season, ranking as the worst offensive tackle in the NFL in Pro Football Focus’ grading system.“Eugene’s been a starter for us, but James has played a lot of football as well,” Trestman said. “Right now — today — it’s James and we’ll see. Certainly, we need everybody. You always need everybody. Eugene is a big part of what we do here, so we’re looking forward to getting him back as well when that time comes.”Pittsburgh officially ruled out starting inside linebacker Ryan Shazier after he missed practices all week with a shoulder injury. Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (knee) already had been declared out on Monday as veteran backup Michael Vick will make the start for Pittsburgh.Steelers center Cody Wallace was listed as probable for Thursday’s game after missing practice on Wednesday due to an illness. Already replacing Pro Bowl center Maurkice Pouncey, Wallace will have his hands full with Ravens nose tackle Brandon Williams, and lingering effects from an illness certainly wouldn’t help in that task.The referee for Thursday night’s game will be Clete Blakeman.The Thursday night forecast in Pittsburgh calls for mostly cloudy skies and temperatures in the high 50s with a very small chance for precipitation and winds up to 10 miles per hour, according to is the final injury report for Thursday:BALTIMOREOUT: DE Chris Canty (calf), TE Crockett Gillmore (calf), OT Eugene Monroe (concussion), WR Breshad Perriman (knee)PITTSBURGHOUT: DT Daniel McCullers (knee), QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee), LB Ryan Shazier (shoulder), TE Matt Spaeth (hand)QUESTIONABLE: CB Cortez Allen (knee)PROBABLE: LB James Harrison (thumb), C Cody Wallace (illness)last_img read more

Hearts boss not angry at Kingston

first_imgHearts manager Csaba Laszlo says he understands why midfielder Laryea Kingston flew home to be with the Ghana squad despite carrying an injury.However, Laszlo admits he would have preferred Kingston not to have made the 4000-mile trip with the 28-year-old not featuring in the friendly with Tunisia.The Hearts boss is now looking forward to Kingston returning to fitness.“For me, I don’t have any bad relationship with Laryea,” said Lazslo “I protect him and my players always.”The Ghanaian FA had reportedly wanted Kingston in Accra so his country’s team doctors could examine the extent of his thigh injury, a decision said to have angered Laszlo.But the Hungarian denies any animosity toward the player, insisting he was simply worried about the potential aggravation to Kingston’s injury. Kingston has missed Hearts’ last five games for Hearts and is due to return from Ghana on Monday.“If Laryea Kingston is back and he trains and is injury-free then he will play because he is a very important player, ” added Laszlo.“The player must understand that, if he has quality, I would like to see this quality on the field but for the team.“I like individual players, individuality can win a game, it can decide a game but not always.“You can take the ball alone, take the ball in circles and hold the ball and people will applaud you. “But I would like to see the team being applauded and not one person.”Source: BBClast_img read more

Tuks coach calls for swimmers to be cleared for training

first_imgSouth Africa’s top swimmers will need to return to the pool soon, according to Tuks head coach Rocco Meiring, if they are to regain their best form in the build-up to next year’s Tokyo Olympics.With the national lockdown having restricted swimmers to dryland training for the last eight weeks, Commonwealth Games 200m breaststroke finalist Kaylene Corbett was struggling with hip and knee injuries, TuksSport confirmed.“When the lockdown started, she continued to give 100% when training,but it was on land and she ended up paying for it,” Meiring said of Corbett, who had qualified for the 2020 Tokyo Games before it was postponed by a year.“It is going to take time for her to fully recover and regain confidence in her body’s abilities.”Meanwhile, World Championships 200m breaststroke silver medallist Tatjana Schoenmaker was battling to stay motivated with no return to competition in sight.“You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to realise it is going to have a severe impact on her performance,” Meiring said.“I don’t even want to contemplate what will happen if another four to six weeks elapse before she is allowed to swim.”While government was expected to lift some lockdown restrictions in July, athletes had not yet been given the green light to return to full outdoor training.Meiring, however, felt the nation’s elite competitors would need to be given some leeway if they were expected to perform well at the Tokyo Games.“We need to be bold, brave and daring for our athletes, not desert them and leave them in a hole that they cannot climb out on their own,” he said.For more news your way, download The Citizen’s app for iOS and Android.last_img read more
