Today is the eighth day of Kansas wheat harvest reports, presented by the Kansas Wheat Commission, the Kansas Association of Wheat Growers and the Kansas Grain and Feed Association.

Scattered showers rolled through Kansas on Tuesday evening, causing a pause in the Kansas wheat harvest. Severe weather conditions hit the eastern two-thirds of the state with gusty winds and a confirmed small tornado in Ellsworth. Farther west, rain totals weren’t very high, but lower temperatures, high humidity and overcast weather meant the harvest was still late to rain for many growers on Wednesday.

Prior to Tuesday’s rain, Kansas Wheat staff stopped at the Hamilton County harvest field. Jason Ochs, who farms near Syracuse, was cutting a field of hard white wheat that came in dry at nine percent moisture with a good test weight of 61.5 pounds per bushel.

Yields for the zone are reported at nine to 25 bushels per acre, but anything over 20 bushels per acre would be a stretch for this part of Kansas due to extreme drought throughout the growing season.

On the county line between Stafford and Reno counties, farmer Randy Fritzemeier was about halfway through the wheat harvest before a quarter inch of rain cut through Tuesday night.

Yields are disappointing in the low 30 bushels per acre, but the wheat is one of the best qualities he has cut with test weights of 61 to 64 pounds per bushel. Despite below-average yields, Fritzemeier was surprised at the quality of the harvest. He had to replant fields due to heavy rainfall during planting, but the weather became so dry that the December 15 storm filled the house with dirt. This spring brought about 1.5 inches of rain during heading and an additional 4.5 inches as the grains filled in, helping to complete the harvest.

He had scheduled a bespoke cutting crew to help him finish the wheat harvest, but with the crew’s delays, Fritzemeier said he would continue to cut until they arrived.

Farmers expect to get back into the combine cab as soon as field conditions allow, likely after triple-digit temperatures on Thursday and Friday.

MANAUS, Brazil — A Federal Police investigator said late Wednesday that a suspect confessed to shooting and killing an indigenous expert and a journalist in a remote part of the Amazon and took officers to where the bodies were buried .

Police told a news conference in the Amazon city of Manaus that the prime suspect in the case confessed on Tuesday night and detailed what happened to the couple who went missing on June 5. They said more arrests would soon be made in the case, but gave no details.

Federal investigator Eduardo Alexandre Fontes said Amarildo da Costa de Oliveira, 41, nicknamed Pelado, told officers he used a gun to kill Indigenous expert Bruno Pereira from Brazil and the freelance journalist Dom Phillips of Britain.

“We would have no way to get to this place quickly without the confession,” Torres said of where police recovered human remains on Wednesday after being driven there by Pelado.

Torres said the remains should be identified within days, and if confirmed as the missing men, “will be returned to the families of both.”

“We found the bodies three kilometers (nearly two miles) into the woods,” the investigator said, adding that rescue teams traveled about an hour and forty minutes up the river and another 25 into the woods to reach the burial place.

Pelado’s family previously said he denied any wrongdoing and claimed police tortured him in an attempt to extract a confession.

Another officer, Guilherme Torres of the Amazonas State Police, said the missing men’s boat had not yet been found, but police knew the area where it was believed to have been hidden by those involved in the crime.

“They put bags of dirt on the boat to make it sink,” he said. The boat’s engine was removed, investigators said.

Federal police officers arrive at the pier after searching for indigenous expert Bruno Pereira and freelance British journalist Dom Phillips in Amazonas state, Brazil, June 14, 2022.

The press conference at Brazil’s federal police headquarters in Manaus also included military leaders, who joined the effort to find Phillips and Pereira days after they were reported missing.

President Jair Bolsonaro, a frequent critic of journalists and indigenous experts, has criticized the government for not getting involved quickly enough. Earlier Wednesday, he slammed Phillips in an interview, saying without proof that people in the area where he disappeared didn’t like him and that he should have been more careful in the area.

Efforts to find both were spearheaded by the indigenous peoples of the region. UNIVAJA, an association of indigenous peoples in the Javari Valley, lamented the loss of “two partners” in a statement on Wednesday, adding that they only had the help and protection of local police.

As federal police announced they would hold a press conference, Pereira’s colleagues called a vigil outside the headquarters of the Brazilian government’s indigenous affairs agency in Brasilia. Pereira was on leave from the agency.

Pereira, 41, and Phillips, 57, were last seen on their boat in a river near the entrance to the Javari Valley indigenous territory, which borders Peru and Colombia. This area has seen violent conflicts between fishermen, poachers and government agents.

The developments began on Wednesday when federal police officers took a suspect they did not identify at the time down the river to search parties looking for Phillips and Pereira.

An Associated Press photographer in Atalaia do Norte, the town closest to the search area, saw police take the suspect, who was in a balaclava, away.

On Tuesday, police said they arrested a second suspect in connection with the disappearance. He was identified as Oseney da Costa de Oliveira, 41, a fisherman and brother of Pelado, whom police had previously named as the prime suspect.

Police investigators said Wednesday that de Oliveira had confessed to no involvement in the crime, but added that they had evidence against him.

Natives who were with Pereira and Phillips said Pelado brandished a gun at them the day before the couple disappeared.

Official search teams have focused their efforts around a spot on the Itaquai River where a tarp from the boat used by the missing men was found on Saturday by volunteers from the Matis Indigenous group.

Authorities began searching the area and on Sunday discovered a backpack, laptop and other personal belongings submerged underwater. Police said that evening they had identified the items as belonging to the two missing men, including a health card and Pereira’s clothing. The backpack reportedly belonged to Phillips.

Police previously reported finding traces of blood in Pelado’s boat. Officers also found apparent human-made organic material in the river which was sent for analysis.

Authorities said one of the main lines of the police investigation into the disappearance has exposed an international network that pays poor fishermen to fish illegally in the Javari Valley reserve, which is the second largest territory. native to Brazil.

Pereira, who previously headed the local office of the indigenous federal agency, known as FUNAI, has been involved in several operations against illegal fishing. In such operations, as a rule, fishing gear is seized or destroyed, while fishermen are fined and briefly detained. Only natives can legally fish on their territories.

“The motive for the crime is a personal quarrel over the fisheries inspection,” Atalaia do Norte mayor Denis Paiva speculated last week, without providing further details.

While some police officers, the mayor and others in the area associate the couple’s disappearances with the “fish mafia”, federal police have not ruled out other avenues of investigation, such as drug trafficking.

Torres, the federal police officer, reiterated that point Wednesday night, saying he couldn’t discuss the details of the investigation.

“We are working with several lines of investigation,” he said.

After the news of the human remains’ recovery, Phillips’ wife, Alessandra Sampaio, said the discovery “puts an end to the angst of not knowing the whereabouts of Dom and Bruno”.

“Now we can take them home and say goodbye with love,” Sampaio said in a statement. “Today we also begin our quest for justice.”

It was mission accomplished for Marcus Ericsson on Sunday at Road America as he powered past his teammate to finish second in the Sonsio Grand Prix at Road America presented by AMR and reclaim the NTT INDYCAR SERIES points lead.

Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge winner Ericsson entered the race weekend wanting to regain the championship lead he lost last weekend after finishing seventh at the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix presented by Lear.

Ericsson climbed to the second step of the podium after a late warning brought the peloton together at Road America. On the restart on Lap 52, Ericsson got a run on the #27 NAPA AUTO PARTS/AutoNation Honda of Alexander Rossi and catapulted himself into second place with three laps to go.

From there, it was smooth sailing for the rider nicknamed the “sneaky Swede” due to his ability to keep a low profile during a race and pounce on the competition when it mattered most.

“It was a really good race for us,” said Ericsson. “I had a few opportunities at the end to try and get a better position. Alex (Rossi) slipped a bit on the last corner so I had a run on him and managed to get out of it. go out.

“P2 is a very good result for the championship and puts us back in the lead, and I’m super happy with that.”

Ericsson entered the weekend just three points behind Will Power, who won last weekend’s race at The Raceway in Belle Isle Park.

However, early race problems for Power, in which his No. 12 Verizon Team Penske Chevrolet was spun after contact by Devlin DeFrancesco’s No. 29 PowerTap Honda on lap 8, allowed Ericsson to reclaim the lead. championship with a good day.

Ericsson has a 27-point lead over 2014 NTT INDYCAR SERIES champion Power and a 32-point gap over two-time series champion Josef Newgarden in third place, who won Sunday’s race. It is the second time in his career that he has topped the points standings, the first time after winning the Indy 500 on May 29.

“It was one of Road America’s goals, to get back that lead,” Ericsson said. “I think we’re in a strong position, but it’s going to take a lot of hard work and keep doing what we’ve been doing.

“I think it’s going to be a difficult season, a long season. We have put ourselves in a very good position now leading, so we have to keep doing what we have been doing.

While the 14-turn, 4.048-mile road course at Elkhart Lake, Wis., is fun to watch, Ericsson’s day in the No. 8 Chocolate Chip Ganassi Racing Honda Huski was anything but simple.

Ericsson started the race fourth for his best qualifying effort of 2022, but he quickly got off to a rocky start. On lap 4, Ericsson made a pass for third place to teammate Alex Palou. As they drove inside defending NTT INDYCAR SERIES champion Palou, the two men made light contact.

Contact with Palou’s left front wheel was enough to break something on the #10 American Legion Honda. Palou’s car limped off course at Turn 5, and his Chip Ganassi Racing team took it behind the wall for repairs. He returned to the track briefly, but eventually retired and finished last, 27th.

Ericsson regretted the contact with his teammate, but said his overtaking attempt was a fair racing gesture. He apologized to Palou and said he was surprised the two cars even touched in the first place.

“From inside the car, the door was open and I left for the move,” Ericsson said. “I was with him at the top and took the turn. For my part, he crashes into me from the outside lane. You hate to see your teammate withdrawing from any contact with you. That’s the last thing you want to do.

“I don’t see that I did anything wrong. It was an all-running move. It may have been a little early in the race, but this race is a track race. If you have an opportunity, you have to go. »

Palou, who is yet to win a win this season and has fallen to fifth in the championship, 47 points back, was furious after he was checked and released from the care center on the pitch after contact early in the race.

“I think everyone saw that,” Palou said. “I just think he was trying to win the race on lap three. The car broke down and that was it. Game over.

“I was surprised that my teammate hit me, not that the car broke. It’s a single-seater car, right? So if you have a hard hit like that, it breaks. We can also play at this game.

Ericsson went on to defend his decision saying, “There was nothing wrong with that decision. It was clear on the TV pictures.

The Chip Ganassi Racing teammates will have two weekends off to settle their disagreement before the NTT INDYCAR SERIES returns to action on Sunday, July 3 with The Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio presented by the all-new Civic Type R 2023 at noon (ET), live on NBC, Peacock Premium and INDYCAR Radio Network.

Stars of Thunder Ridge is a big hit https://scotsbeavers.org/stars-of-thunder-ridge-is-a-big-hit/ Fri, 10 Jun 2022 12:45:47 +0000 https://scotsbeavers.org/stars-of-thunder-ridge-is-a-big-hit/ When Joel Struckhoff took over as head coach of the Thunder Ridge Longhorns, the program had experienced its worst streak in the school’s ten-year history.

When Joel Struckhoff took over as head coach of the Thunder Ridge Longhorns, the program had experienced its worst streak in the school’s ten-year history. From 2015 to 2017, the Longhorns went 3-23. The Class of 2022 entered high school the same year Struckhoff took over and from there, they had four straight winning seasons.

This year’s senior class compiled a 30-11 record in their four seasons as Longhorns and in 2021 they had the second-best record in school history, finishing 11-1. After an 11-0 start, they lost to eventual 8-Man DII State Champion Axtell in the state semifinals.

Olin Brown, Daxton Dunlap and Owen Hrabe all played big roles in that success, as evidenced by their invitations to the 8-a-side game on Saturday. All three athletes will play for the DII East team in the afternoon game.

Brown started his season on the Longhorns offensive line, but midway through it became apparent he could make a difference by handling the pigskin. He was moved to fullback before the Osborne game and finished the season with 477 yards and 15 TDs, averaging 7.8 yards each time he carried the ball. As an All-State LB honorable mention, he also led the Longhorn defense with 127 tackles including 19 for loss. Brown reflected on his memories of the season, including that transition back.


Owen Hrabe ultimately helped pave the way for Brown. Hrabe was an honorable mention All-State OL and first-team All-NPL and All-District. With Hrabe in the middle position, the Longhorns have rushed for over 3,000 yards in 2021. He has also added 34 tackles on defense. He commented on what led to the great success of Thunder Ridge.

Daxton Dunlap was also a regular for the Longhorns in 2021. He recorded 45 tackles and three interceptions from his defensive back position. He’s caught just six passes this season for 188 yards, but three of his receptions have been for touchdowns. He was second team all leagues and all districts in both positions. Dunlap was happy to credit his coach for the success he and his teammates had in high school.

Representatives from Thunder Ridge have one last chance to show off their footballing skills in the 8-Man DII All-Star Game on Saturday afternoon at Trojan Field in Beloit. The game kicks off at 1:30 a.m. with pre-game coverage beginning at 1:00 a.m. on KD Country 94 and the Kansas 8-Man All-Star Game Radio Network at http://www.8manallstars.com.

Mike “Bax” Baxendale, co-host of the morning show “Rock 102”, Springfield is this week’s guest on Harrison Podcast. Often referred to as Michael Harrison as “pound-for-pound talk radio champion” Mike “Bax” Baxendale – who has ruled Western Massachusetts radio ratings and revenue for the past 27 years at an extraordinary level – is this week’s guest on the award-winning program Podcast One series, “The Michael Harrison Interview”. Known to his loyal legion of listeners simply as “bax“, Baxendale has enjoyed tremendous success as a key member of the evolving WAQY “Rock 102” morning team since 1995 and continues to grow. First, he enjoyed an incredibly long run with a talented co-host John O’Brien (Bax & O’Brien) and now the dynamic continues with the co-hosts Steve Nagle and Dave Combes (“Bax, Steve and Dave”). See photo (lr) Bax, Steve Nagle and Dave Coombs. Bax became, according to Harrison, “a quintessential example of the notable breed of radio talker operating in the context of a duo or crew on a music FM station where the politics are mostly local, unpredictable and non-partisan and not the only focus.” Harrison continues, “This hard-working broadcaster talks about politics, music, sports and a wide range of everyday issues and ranges from the silly to the serious, from the irreverent to the respectful.” Harrison and Bax speak business realities faced by duos and crews on radio as well as the differences between how talk show hosts on music radio stations approach their audience in terms of subject matter and attitude and those who perform on news/traditional speakers. Harrison references his own talkative roots in FM music radio. To listen to the podcast in its entirety, click here.
