St. Edmond boys roll in opener at Garrigan | News, Sports, Jobs



ALGONA — The St. Edmond boys got off to a strong start here on Monday, knocking off Bishop Garrigan 67-42 on the road.

The Gaels (1-0 overall) built an 18-point first half lead and never looked back.

“We talked about playing well right away and getting off to a fast start,” said SEHS head coach Adolph Kochendorfer. “Going into the third quarter, we wanted to keep the intensity up even though we were (relatively in control).”

The Gaels did exactly that to start the second half, extending their lead to 27 points.

“It’s nice to get the season going and play against someone (officially),” Kochendorfer said. “Our defense played and put a body on defenders for the most part. There were a couple of stretches where we struggled, though.”

The Gaels placed three players in double figures, while two had nine each.

Senior Hayden Mayer led the way with 20 points. Noah Simpson and Caleb Schaeffer had 10 points a piece.

Quinten McCarville and Zach Smith checked in with nine each.

St. Edmond swished eight three-pointers in all.

“The balanced scoring was huge,” Kochendorfer said. “We had some guys coming off the bench and doing well. We want them to play defense and move the ball around and maybe score five or six points in the process.

“The more we can even things out, the better.”

Jacob Leerar scored nine points for the Golden Bears. Jack Grandgenett and Andrew Fogarty contributed eight points each.

The Gaels are back in action on Friday when they travel to Clarion-Goldfield/Dows. Girls tip at 6:15 p.m. with the boys to follow at approximately 7:45 p.m.

ST. EDMOND 67, BISHOP GARRIGAN 42

St. Edmond — Hayden Mayer 20, Noah Simpson 10, Caleb Schaeffer 10, Quinten McCarville 9, Zach Smith 9, Jackson Palmer 2, Sam Mericle 3, Issac Landerwhr 4.

Bishop Garrigan — Jack Grandgenett 8, Jacob Leerar 9, Andrew Fogarty 8, Ryan Noonan 5, Hollis Bode 2, Grant Haugland 2, Drew Muller 6, Nate Bronk 2.

Quarter scores: St. Edmond led 18-12, 32-14, 51-24.

Lambert International Airport expecting Thanksgiving holiday travel to double over 2020 | St. Louis News Headlines


ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KMOV.com) — More than 171,000 passengers will pass through TSA security checkpoints at Lambert International Airport within the next week, according to projections from the Transportation Security Administration.

The administration estimates between Nov. 19 and Nov. 29, 171,980 passengers will pass through Lambert’s checkpoints. The data does not reflect connecting passengers.

In 2020, the airport saw 78,925 passengers in that same 11 day span. Record low air travel last year occurred in airports nationwide, largely due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This year, TSA estimates nearly 20 million Americans will take to the skies for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Masks are still required within airports and on airplanes for all passengers above the age of two. Passengers are able to remove their mask to eat and drink.

“People want to be out again, people want to see families, they want to see friends, they want to be together and obviously the holidays are a big piece of that,” Rhonda Hamm-Niebruegge, director of the St. Louis Lambert International Airport, said. “It tells me that we’ve come a long way of ensuring the public it is safe to fly.”

Both the airport and TSA aren’t immune to the staffing shortages plaguing much of the country. Even so, both said they are equipped to handle the holiday rush.

“You’ll see additional staff on hand and we’ll also use some of our administration staff that will come over and help the TSO’s in the checkpoints to move the bins and things like that to keep it moving,” Mark Howell, a spokesperson for TSA, said. “You’ll see an all hands on deck approach really throughout the holiday week.”

Many airport workers will also work overtime and double duty to ensure processes on its end run smoothly, Hamm-Niebruegge said.

TSA recommends arriving two hours before your flight to ensure you’re able to get through the security check point and check any bags. In doing so, the agency is also able to better staff each of its checkpoints.

“We take a look at when the flights are going out and we try to set the setup with at the checkpoints with the appropriate staffing at those periods based on that two hours,” Howell said. “So getting there on time is going to really help out in keeping things moving.”

Most solid foods are allowed to be taken through security, but Howell recommends leaving early holiday gifts unwrapped.

“If you want to travel with gifts, we highly recommend you don’t wrap them,” he said. “If you check your bag or bring it through the checkpoint and we have to search it, or at least the specific item, we may have to unwrap it.”

Tuesday and Wednesday are expected to be the busiest travel days ahead of the holiday at Lambert, with more than 17,000 passengers projected to clear TSA each day. Sunday will likely mark the busiest day of the travel season so far, with more than 18,000 people expected at Lambert.

Pre-pandemic, more than 198,000 people passed through Lambert during Thanksgiving holiday travel in 2019. Hamm-Niebruegge said 2018 was a record travel year, with more than 202,000 people traveling through Lambert in the same 11-day span.

Why there’s much to love about St Lucia’s natural wonders


St Lucia. Romance. The two have long been woven together. And that’s because the island has been so successful conjuring up its mercurial mix of welcome, charm and character-filled hotels – a unique variation on the seductiveness of all the Windward Islands.

So yes, as a couple, there’s plenty to lure you here. But part of that charm is St Lucia’s physical luxuriance, and – whether or not you’re visiting with a significant other – you’re reminded of this at every turn. Other Caribbean islands have a lush beauty about them, but nowhere else does this culminate in the crescendo of the Pitons, St Lucia’s iconic twin volcanic peaks, which in a moment of pure geographical drama soar 2,500ft from the sea like massive incisors. 

Mind-boggling fertility is everywhere. Trees drip with fruit, hotel gardens explode with colour and even roads seem under threat as growth encroaches from either side. Not long ago this was known simply as “bush”. But there is more to bush than you could ever imagine. To celebrate it, St Lucia has come up with the idea of a Botanical Trail that will tempt couples and singletons alike. Launched just before lockdown, this loose collection of sites of natural interest – parks, gardens and plantations – is now re-opening as the individual elements become Covid certified.

Tet Paul, a community project, claims to have the island’s finest view of the Pitons. From the village of Chateaubelair, I was led by guide Bertha up a ravine to the Tet, a plateau. She pointed out local crops and tropical trees – breadfruit, cashew and lime, sweet potato, ladies’ fingers and pineapple; the last grows in an impressive explosion of spikes. On the plateau itself the sounds of village life rose to meet us – music, a shrieking laugh and a dog bark. The culmination of it all is a viewing platform: the massive pointed Pitons really are magical.

Rabot Hotel by Hotel Chocolat is one of a number of luxurious options clustered around these extraordinary mountains. Its pool, dining room and most of its rooms gaze across greenery onto the Petit Piton, which hovers above like a pyramid. It’s easy to spend time gazing at something so majestic, particularly with a cup of local “cocoa tea” (unprocessed, unsweetened chocolate) to hand. Interestingly, chocolate, bitter or sweetened, is included in almost every dish on the menu at Hotel Chocolat. The hotel name itself hints at an important dimension of the island’s fertility: plantations. In the late 1700s the difficult terrain here was found suitable for cocoa forests, cultivated to satisfy a taste for the drink in European chocolate houses.

Manatee, rehabbed after vessel strike, released into St. Lucie River


STUART — Hope comes in many forms. On Wednesday, hope was a rotund 735-pound manatee, swimming her way home after more than five months of recovery.

“Sheep,” an 8-foot-long young adult female manatee, was released into Frazier Creek, a tributary of the St. Lucie River in Stuart. She was rescued in May after a boat collision in Martin County left her weak and floating on her side.

After being reported May 12 to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the manatee was relocated 110 miles south to Miami Seaquarium, where she’s spent the last half-year growing strength, adding fat to her frame and regaining her energy.

Can we feed them?: Manatees are starving to death in Florida. Experts weigh pros, cons of feeding them

$7M worth of lettuce: Starving manatees: Will Florida spend $7 million more to help save them?

Can Congress help manatees?: Manatee Protection Act would reclassify manatees as endangered. Now what happens?

Don’t call it a come back

Florida wildlife officials released the gentle marine mammal from the boat ramp at Shepard Park in Stuart with the help of Florida Atlantic University’s Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute and the Miami aquarium. She was cheered on by more than 40 enthusiastic bystanders. 

“Seeing her come back and being released back into the wild is a great accomplishment for everyone involved,” said Steve Burton, director of stranding and population assessment at the Fort Pierce-based Harbor Branch. “It’s a great thing to watch.”

It’s been an especially tough year for Florida’s beloved sea cows: A record 988 manatees have died through Oct. 29, according to state data updated Wednesday. Biologists point to seagrass loss in the Indian River Lagoon as a catalyst for starvation and malnutrition. 

As cooler temperatures arrive to the Sunshine State, wildlife officials fear another rough winter for manatees could be in store as they begin to gather in warm-water areas with little food to go around. 

But Sheep — whose nickname is a play on “Shepard Park” — still has some time to travel and forage before water temperatures start to drop, according to Julie Heyde, an animal care supervisor at Miami Seaquarium.

While some manatees rescued during this year’s die-off were equipped with tracking belts before released, Sheep was given microchips (similar to those found in pet dogs or cats) in case she’s rescued again in the future, Heyde said.

“She was always very active in the pool,” Heyde said of Sheep’s time in recovery. “She definitely has a sassy personality.” 

Roughly 75% of the manatees at Miami Seaquarium are rehabilitated for boat strikes, Heyde said. At least 89 were killed this year from watercraft, compared to 91 in all of 2020, state data show. 

November is also “Manatee Awareness Month,” and as the animals begin to relocate to warmer waters, boaters should begin to take extra caution, said FWC regional director Tom Reinert. He added boaters should wear polarized glasses to help see clearer into the water. 

“Manatees are on the move,” Reinert said. “Keep an eye out.” 

Report sick, injured, dead manatees 

Contact FWC’s Wildlife Alert Hotline by calling toll-free at 888-404-3922 (FWCC), emailing Tip@MyFWC.com or using VHF Channel 16 on your boat.

Manatee protection: How boaters can help

  • Consult a boater’s guide for each county you visit to learn the manatee speed zones.
  • Obey posted speed zone signs and keep away from posted manatee sanctuaries.
  • Avoid seagrass beds and shallow areas where manatees might be feeding.
  • Stay in deep-water channels, but beware manatees travel in them too.
  • Don’t jet ski, water ski or do other high-speed watersports where manatees frequent. Stick to land-locked lakes or waters well offshore.
  • Wear polarized glasses to eliminate the sun’s glare and see below the water surface.
  • Look for a snout, back, tail, flipper as well as a flat spot or swirl of water, which manatees create when they flap their tail to dive or swim.
  • Remain at least 50 feet away from a manatee and cut your motor to sit and observe it. Remember, it is illegal to feed and give water to manatees.

ST. GEORGE, Utah (ABC4) – The state’s only COVID-19 testing site in Southwestern Utah at Dixie Technical College is expanding its lanes and operation hours just in time for the holidays.

“We noticed we have a lot of people traveling, the holidays are coming up and we really wanted to make sure people are able to get that done as they are leaving the country, a lot of different countries have different requirements as you’re traveling and they need that negative test,” says Carolina Herrin, the Operations Director for Nomi Health.

Starting Monday, there’s a designated testing lane for those expecting to travel in the coming weeks the only other site like this is at the state’s health department in Salt Lake City.

“On average we do about 400-600 tests a day our travel lane in Salt Lake has done over 1,000 tests and we’ve barely been open for a month not even a full month, so we’re looking to have those numbers increase in St. George as well,” says Herrin.

The testing site is now open from 7 AM to 7 PM, seven days a week. Rapid molecular tests, PCR and rapid antigen tests are available.

“All Utah residents, you can get this service for free, we just need to know you have a boarding pass, or you’re traveling so any type of proof of that, proof of residency and it’s completely free,” says Herrin.

Anyone from out-of-state has to pay a $179 fee for the rapid PCR test, however standard PCR and rapid antigen tests are an option and free of charge.

BEIJING (AP) — Asian stock markets were mixed Monday after Wall Street slipped and China tightened travel controls in some areas in response to coronavirus infections.

Shanghai, Hong Kong and Sydney advanced. Tokyo declined.

Wall Street’s S&P 500 index lost 0.1% on Friday, weighed down by losses for tech companies after a seven-day streak of gains.

The Chinese capital, Beijing, banned visitors from areas with infections in the past 14 days and Gansu province in the northwest closed tourist sites after coronavirus cases were found. China has reported a few dozen cases, but Beijing’s response of curbing travel prompted concern that might weigh on economic activity that already is weakening.

“One may expect aggressive measures to control virus spreads, which may put a cap on growth,” said Yeap Jun Rong of IG in a report.

The Shanghai Composite Index rose 0.3% to 3,593.51 while the Nikkei 225 in Tokyo lost 0.8% to 28,572.21. The Hang Seng in Hong Kong added less than 0.1% to 26,124.84.

The Kospi in Seoul advanced 0.6% to 3,022.89 and Sydney’s S&P-ASX 200 gained 0.3% to 7,441.00.

India’s Sensex opened up 0.1% at 60,894.54. New Zealand, Singapore and Bangkok declined while Jakarta advanced.

On Wall Street, the S&P 500 ended at 4,544.90 on Friday after losses for big tech companies after a day of choppy trading.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 0.2% to 35,677.02, exceeding its Aug. 15 high. The Nasdaq composite slid 0.8% to 15,090.20.

Some 65% of stocks in the S&P 500 closed higher, led mainly by financial and health care companies, but losses in communication and technology companies held the S&P 500 down. Chipmaker Intel slumped 11.7% after reporting disappointing revenue.

Snapchat’s parent company, Snap, plunged 26.6% after reporting weak revenue and disclosing that its ad sales are being hurt by a privacy crackdown that rolled out on Apple’s iPhones earlier this year. Facebook fell 5.1% and Twitter lost 4.8%. Google’s parent, Alphabet, declined 3%.

The three major indexes post their third weekly gain after investors were encouraged by mostly solid corporate results.

Also Friday, Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell said industrial supply chain problems have gotten worse and will likely keep inflation elevated well into next year.

Investors are looking for clues as to how companies are navigating supply chain problems and rising costs for materials, transportation and other goods and services. Many companies have warned higher costs will hurt operations.

Powell also said the Fed isn’t prepared to lift its benchmark interest rate from near zero. But he suggested the economy might be ready fo ra rate hike next year.

In energy markets, benchmark U.S. crude rose 76 cents to $84.52 per barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The contract rose $1.26 to $83.76 on Friday. Brent crude, used as the price basis for international oils, lost 28 cents to $85.25 per barrel in London. It rose 92 cents the previous session to $85.53.

The dollar gained to 113.60 yen from Friday’s 113.44 yen. The euro rose to $1.1658 from $1.1637.

Pirates Travel To St. John’s (RV) on Saturday


South Orange, N.J. – Following a road victory at DePaul, the Pirates will stay on the road to take on St. John’s on Saturday. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. at Belson Stadium in Queens, N.Y. The match will be streamed on the BIG EAST Digital Network on FloSports.
 
LAST TIME OUT
In their first BIG EAST road match of the season, the Pirates got the better of chances in the first half, holding advantages in shots, 9-3, and shots on target, 2-0. Still, the Pirates entered the break in a scoreless draw with the host-Blue Demons.Following an hour-long delay due to lighting in the area about halfway through the second half, the Pirates came out hot despite the soggy weather.
 
In the 81st minute, CJ Tibbling (Jarna, Sweden) made an aggressive run for the Blue Demon box where he was met with a tackle from a DePaul defender. The ball shot up into the air as Jordan Jowers (Middlesbrough, England) used his body to better position himself once the ball landed while shielding the final Blue Demon defender. Once he corralled the bounce, Jowers was able to successfully beat the keeper with a low strike into the left corner of the net for what would eventually become the game-winner.
 

 
The Pirates held the Blue Demons without a shot on net for the full 90 minutes. Andreas Nota (Rome, Italy) picked up the shutout for The Hall, his second of the season and 12th of his career. The 12 career clean sheets move Nota into third place on the program history leaderboard.
 
SCOUTING – St. John’s (8-3-1, 3-1-1)

  • The Red Storm are coming off an overtime, road victory over Villanova last Saturday. Lucas Bartlett scored the lone goal in the 1-0 victory on a penalty kick just over one minute into the extra period.

NEWS & NOTES

  • Seton Hall is looking to continue its recent success against St. John’s as the Pirates are currently riding a two-game win streak and three game unbeaten streak against the Red Storm, the longest of either such streak since Seton Hall won seven straight against St. John’s from 1986-1991. The Pirates’ 3-2 overtime victory at Belson last season was the first since 2014 and also served as the first time the Pirates scored at least three goals in a win at St. John’s since 1988 when they took down the Red Storm 4-0.

  • CJ Tibbling tallied twice for Seton Hall against No. 1 Georgetown. For Tibbling, it was his 16th and 17th tallies as a Pirate. The multi-goal game was Tibbling’s third of his career and first since the 2018 season.
  • Leading the BIG EAST with a team-high 15 points, Johannes Pex converted his second and third penalty kicks of the season at Fordham earning him a spot on the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll. The tallies for Pex were just 62 seconds apart and served as his second career multi-goal game with his first coming in last season’s season-opener at NJIT. Pex also tallied twice and picked up an assist across wins against Delaware and NC State earning BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Week honor (9/6). The junior was also named to College Soccer News’ National Team of the Week. Pex was also selected to the conference’s weekly honor roll following his three assists against NJIT (9/10).
  • Thirteen different Pirates have now found the back of the net this season with 30 assists on 25 total goals. The Hall had tallies from 12 different players last season.
  • The Pirates are 5-1-0 in games where they were the first team to score. Dating back to the start of last season The Hall is a combined 13-2-1 when striking first.
  • The Seton Hall men’s soccer team was picked second in the BIG EAST Conference Preseason Coaches Poll as the reigning BIG EAST champions were awarded 93 points including three first place votes. Georgetown took the top spot in the poll edging the Pirates by just five points while Creighton, the third team picked, was awarded 74 points.
