Arvilla M. Schumacher

first_imgArvilla M. Schumacher, age 94 of Batesville, died Tuesday, February 14, 2017 at St. Andrew’s Health Campus. Born October 29, 1922 in Franklin County Indiana, she is the daughter of Mary (Nee: Fasbinder) and Chester Stevens. She married Edward (John) Schumacher May 18, 1942 in St. Joseph, Missouri and he preceded her in death July 27, 2012.Family was very important to Arvilla. She loved nothing better than to be surrounded with family. Her daughters, grandchildren, great grandchildren, brothers, sisters, it didn’t matter. She was usually content to sit back and listen to the banter back and forth. Part of the silent generation and also part of what Tom Brokaw called the greatest generation, her daughters marveled at their mom’s patience, strength and unconditional love. With John temporary stationed at St. Joe Missouri during World War II, she went to work in a garment factory to help do her part to support the war effort. When John was shipped out, she moved back to the Batesville, pregnant with their first child. Victoria was nine months old before John first saw her. The girls mentioned that although mom wasn’t a seamstress, she did make clothing for them when they were younger and also indicated she was an excellent cook and baker. It was common to come home to the aroma of baked bread, rolls or a sweet treat. Saturday’s were affectionately known as “soup day” and her homemade chicken soup was tough to beat. Trips to Las Vegas or to Florida to see family were always something she looked forward to and for relaxation, she liked watching Oprah, Ellen and Dr. Phil.Arvilla is survived by daughters Victoria Creeger of Batesville, Sherry Ertel of Sunman, Kris Lindemann, Kim Oblinger and Mary Jon McCaig, all of Batesville, Amy Gallo of Indianapolis; sisters Vera Michalowicz, Rita Holman, Betty Lamping; brother Eugene Andrews; seven grandchildren and nine great grandchildren. In addition to her husband and parents, she is also preceded in death by sisters Alice Meyer, Charlene Bushman, Jeanne Haas and brother Gerald Stevens.Visitation is Saturday, February 18th, from 9 – 11 a.m. at the Weigel Funeral Home. Funeral services follow at 11:30 a.m. at St. Louis Church with Rev. Stan Pondo officiating. Burial will follow in the church cemetery. The family requests memorials to the Margaret Mary Health Foundation Hospice.last_img read more

Madigan guides Leinster to victory

first_img Press Association Andrew Goodman did all the scoring in the opening 40 minutes for Leinster, his try and two penalties guiding them to a 11-5 lead. Andy Fenby swooped for a Scarlets try in the 35th minute but they were overrun by the in-form hosts with turnovers proving costly for the Welsh region. Having missed out on a place in the Ireland squad for the RBS 6 Nations match against Scotland, Madigan looked eager to prove a point as a half-time replacement at the RDS. He was involved in Leinster’s most potent attacks as they scored 21 unanswered points after the break, with Madigan converting tries from Aaron Dundon, Jordi Murphy and John Cooney. center_img Ian Madigan pulled the strings for Leinster in the second half as they claimed a bonus-point 32-5 victory against the Scarlets in the RaboDirect Pro12.last_img read more

USG meet and greet suffered from low attendance

first_imgDespite online promotion, only one student attended the USG Candidate Meet and Greet in the Ronald Tutor Campus Center on Wednesday evening.At the event, USG candidates gathered for an informal networking event.  Students had the opportunity to individually meet the presidential, vice presidential and senatorial candidates to ask them specific questions about their platforms.USG had booked the room from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. The Director of Elections and Recruitment Kandace London, however, determined there wasn’t enough interest in the event and officially dismissed the meet and greet at 7:30 p.m.“We didn’t want to waste any of the candidates time,” said Christine Hennes, USG senior director of communications.Candidates had the option of remaining in the room until 8 p.m. when the room reservation expired.One student arrived at the event after 7:30 p.m., though by that point, only presidential ticket Providence Ilisevich and Ehren Elder were present.“In all honesty, it was mostly just candidates at the event,” Rini Sampath, USG presidential candidate and current USG vice president, said. “But, I guess one thing that definitely showed was that we need to reach out to more students to come to these events. Elections and recruitments have done a phenomenal job, but, definitely getting students to become more interested in student government [is important].”Instead, Sampath and Jordan Fowler, USG vice presidential candidate, said that the candidates utilized the time to meet the other tickets running.“The meet and greet was really fun because we got to sit down and meet the other people running,” Fowler said. “Not just the presidential tickets, which are the people I’m more familiar with, but those who were running for Senate.”Eric Suen, a junior majoring in economics who was the one student to attend the event, explained that he heard about the meet and greet because he is a member of a USG committee.He commented that the low student attendance correlates to the lack of university-wide promotion for the USG election.“Right now, the student body isn’t as serious as [USG would] like [it] to be.”Elder attributed the low student attendance at USG election events to the fact that three events were scheduled for consecutive days.“We had an incredible turnout last night with the diversity debate and I’m expecting to see another incredible turnout tomorrow [for the presidential debate],” Elder said. “ It’s tough to ask so many students to come out three nights in a row.”Illisevich seemed to be sure that students would participate in the election.“Students are still engaged in these elections and the elections and recruitment teams put a lot of effort into everything they do,” Ilisevich said. “I know they’ll do a great job with the booths on campus. They’ve also made it really easy because you can vote online now and I think a lot of students will use the opportunity.”Suen said the candidate meet and greet event ultimately helped him decide which candidate he wanted to vote for.“I’m very glad I talked to them, because they are also students that want to have changes,” Suen said. “Every year the presidents change and I want to know if they’re actually going to bring changes. I just really wanted to get some personal one on one time. The way [the candidates] carry themselves gives me a good impression of them.”last_img read more

C.Ronaldo set to miss two weeks with injury

first_imgReal Madrid have received some bad news from the treatment table in the aftermath of their impressive 7-0 win over Malaga on Thursday evening, with star player Cristiano Ronaldo forced off the pitch after 77 minutes of play due to a hamstring problem.The Portuguese superstar netted a hat-trick in the encounter, but after scoring his third, immediately signalled to the bench that he had to come off, and the player confirmed that he will be sidelined for a while.“I hurt myself when I scored my third goal. I didn’t want to risk anything with all the important games coming up so I limped off. The injury doesn’t seem to be too serious though,” said Ronaldo to Marca.“We were winning the game and there was no need to take any risks. That’s why I left the pitch. However, I don’t think I’ll be able to play against Racing Santander on Sunday.”Ronaldo underwent further examination on Friday morning and a scan has revealed that the attacker will be unavailable for 10-15 days due to the knock, meaning that he could very well miss the Champions League match against Olympique Lyonnais on 16 March.The Real Madrid forward has now scored 27 goals in 26 La Liga appearances, and currently sits second in the Castrol Rankings.

My family were more nervous than me about Manchester United move – Anthony Martial

first_imgThe family of Manchester United’s latest signing Anthony Martial were more nervous than he was about him becoming the world’s most expensive teenager by moving from AS MonacoThe 19-year-old, dubbed the new Thierry Henry despite making barely 50 first-team appearances for the Ligue 1 side, moved to Old Trafford for a reported 36 million pounds. However, the forward told a news conference in France on Wednesday he was not concerned about the size of the fee.”My family were definitely a bit nervous because of my high price but I’m going to stay focused on my work,” he said. “I don’t worry about the sums. The price is between the two clubs and I’m going there for the football side.”I don’t see myself as being under any pressure.Since I was young, people have told me I have the right characteristics to play in England.” Martial said United manager Louis van Gaal had asked him his best position and been told it was in the centre.”But he told me I can play in a number of positions,” the French Under-21 international added. “It’s the coach who decides.” Nor did Martial appear overawed by the prospect of featuring alongside players like England captain Wayne Rooney.”It’s normal Wayne Rooney doesn’t know me,” he said. “Next to him I’ll improve my game a lot.” –Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.

Dodgers’ Don Mattingly in balancing act heading into postseason

first_imgSAN FRANCISCO >> Clinching the Western Division title earlier than any Dodgers team since the franchise’s move from Brooklyn earned them a dip in the pool and a harsh tweet from a certain former presidential candidate who represents Arizona in the U.S. Senate, along with some obvious advantages going into the playoffs.The Dodgers, who became the first team in the majors to clinch on Sept. 19, have the last week-and-a-half of the season to set their rotation and allow everyday players a chance to rest nagging injuries.But for a competitive athlete in any sport — and especially in a game in which timing and rhythm are such crucial components — checking out of the daily grind too soon can be a perilous endeavor.Need proof? Just ask the mighty 2012 Detroit Tigers, swept by the San Francisco Giants in a World Series they were heavily favored to win after a six-day layoff.As their season winds down, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly acknowledged that keeping his players sharp, and at the same time getting them some rest, is a delicate balancing act.“I think what you can’t do is you can’t get caught in the trap of just turning it off,” Mattingly said before Tuesday night’s series opener against San Francisco.“You can’t say you’re going to shut it off for a few days and then all of a sudden you’ve got to turn it back on. I think that’s where the danger is.”The Dodgers really shouldn’t be in full-blown shut-down mode anyway. They’re still in the hunt for the National League’s best record, which would give them home field advantage throughout the playoffs. Going into Tuesday, the Dodgers (90-66) trailed Atlanta (92-64) by two games for the league’s best record. St. Louis (92-65) led the Dodgers by a 1 1/2 games.“Certain guys don’t really need to play that much, but you still want them playing because we’re still in it,” Mattingly said. “It would be nice to have home field advantage.”Nice, but not imperative.“What’s the price of that,” Mattingly said. “That’s where the balancing comes in for us. We’re just trying to balance ‘this guy needs his days (off), we want him totally healthy going in,’ but (we’d) also like to see him playing enough so that he’s sharp.”Mattingly said it’s especially crucial that players make his staff aware of aches and pains now, before they turn into injuries that could hurt the team in the playoffs.But athletes aren’t inherently wired to be so forthcoming. And baseball players, perhaps more than other sports, have a vested interest in staying on the field.“Obviously baseball more than any other sport is about timing and it’s about timing and rhythm,” utilityman Jerry Hairston Jr. said. “Especially with hitting, you definitely have to have timing. If you’re off just a hair it can affect you. That’s why guys want to play every day.”There are also immeasurable qualities that are lost when a player sits.“It’s a fine line because if guys are banged up a little bit you can get them healthy, but at the same time you’ve got to keep that edge, keep that fire going,” second baseman Mark Ellis said.That edge isn’t always so easy to recapture.“The Tigers came in last year and I’m sure they felt that they weren’t as sharp,” Hairston said. “If you have two or three days off then that’s a good thing, but if you six, seven, eight; that’s pretty rough.”For his part, Mattingly would rather err on the side of resting his players less.“I’d say I’d like to as long as it doesn’t cost me an injury, so again it’s back to that balancing act,” he said.“I’ve heard some smart people say there’s only one way to play and that’s the right way, and that’s all the time.“The danger is any time you get lazy and you get away from how you’re supposed to play the game, then you’ve got the chance of starting a bad habit and doing something you really shouldn’t be doing.” center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Angels, Dodgers starting pitching hit hard in 6-6 tie

first_imgHe was recalled in June and finished the season with a solid run, going 6-3 with a 3.30 ERA in 17 starts, but his pitch counts were consistently high. “I think he has enough stuff to keep hitters off-balance the third or fourth time through the lineup,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. “His flaw right now has been pitch count and his flaw has been when he’s gotten behind in counts and hasn’t had the stuff to get back in … but if he’s in the zone, his stuff plays and he can be a big asset in the starting rotation if he can continue to do that, so I think it just comes down to command.”Scott Van Slyke was 2 for 3 with a home run and a pair of RBIs for the Dodgers, who took a 4-3 lead with a three-run fourth inning. The Angels’ Kole Calhoun was 2 for 2 and Collin Cowgill was 2 for 3 with a pair of runs scored. Cowgill’s seventh-inning RBI double was followed by a go-ahead RBI single from Johnny Giavotella. The three-run frame gave the Angels a 6-5 lead that held up until the bottom of the ninth inning.Kike Hernandez’s solo home run to lead off the ninth inning tied the game, but extra innings were not played because it was an exhibition game. “My stuff was terrible, borderline embarrassing,” Anderson said. “My breaking balls were terrible. My command wasn’t very good … I know I can pitch, it’s just being able to go out there and do it physically and I feel fine, so now it’s just going forward.”When No. 3 starter Hyun-Jin Ryu returns from the disabled list, the Dodgers are planning to bump Anderson to fifth in the rotation. The Angels are in a similar situation with 2014 breakout star Garrett Richards, who is still recovering from knee surgery. Hector Santiago, expected to be the fifth starter, will begin the season as No. 4. Saturday night, Santiago gave up five runs on five hits in four innings with a pair of walks. Last season sent so poorly for Santiago, the 27-year-old entered this spring with his roster spot in jeopardy. He was demoted to the bullpen after beginning the last year 0-6 with a 5.19 ERA. Two relief appearances later, he was sent to Triple-A. Neither the Dodgers nor the Angels used a fourth starter in the playoffs last season.The Angels’ postseason infamously ended in three games while the Dodgers chose to pitch NL MVP Clayton Kershaw on short rest on their fourth and final game of the playoffs.Based on their final exhibition game before Opening Day, a 6-6 tie between the two teams Saturday night at Dodger Stadium, both parties are glad a long season stands between them and the postseason, given the state of their current fourth starters. The oft-injured Brett Anderson, who the Dodgers signed in the offseason to a one-year, $10 million deal, was shelled for seven hits in three innings of his final tuneup. He was fortunate to allow only two runs, but the 27-year-old wasn’t sugar-coating his performance.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
