Gophers kick off new season at Minnesota Invitational

first_imgGophers kick off new season at Minnesota InvitationalMinnesota returns many key golfers from last season’s successful team. Betsy HelfandSeptember 15, 2014Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintThe Gophers wrapped up last season as one of the most successful teams in program history.They’ll try to build off that on Monday as they begin their 2014-15 campaign with many of last year’s key golfers and several fresh faces.“I think we definitely have good momentum. I think we know what it takes to get to where we want to be, so we know how much time we have to put in and we know what worked from last year and what didn’t,” senior Anna Laorr said.The Gophers finished 11th at their NCAA regional last season and return many of the key members of that team, including Laorr and Carmen Laguna, two of the team’s top golfers.Minnesota graduated Banchalee Theinthong, a strong contributor, but gained a highly touted freshman class that includes Celia Kuenster, a two-time Minnesota Class 3A state champion.Kuenster has worked herself into the lineup for the Minnesota Invitational. She said she has some nerves heading into her first collegiate tournament, but she’s mostly excited.Head coach Michele Redman hasn’t placed any expectations on the talented freshman.“I want her to get better and grow as a player here, and I know she’s going to do that,” Redman said. “I just want her to grow as a player and get better every week.”Kuenster said the coaches haven’t placed any pressure on the freshman class — which also includes Heather Ciskowski and Sabrine Garrison — but there is an internal pressure to succeed. “I want to play well and want to help the team, and I want the team to keep getting better,” Kuenster said.Kuenster will have a chance to do that on Monday. Kuenster, Laguna, Laorr, senior Sarinee Thitiratanakorn and sophomore Sophie Kitchen make up Minnesota’s lineup for the first tournament.Redman said the team was able to play three qualifying rounds, which helped her get a sense of where the team is.“It’s going to be interesting to see who’s in the lineup each week, because it’s probably going to change a bit until I figure out what five play well together,” she said.At this point, Redman said the most important thing for Minnesota is to keep improving, as it has done the past three seasons.“When [we] do that, then everything else just takes care of itself,” she said.Laorr said a long-term goal for the team is making it to nationals. But before that, there’s a lot of work for the team to do.“I think we definitely proved ourselves a little bit [last year],” she said. “I think now we’re more on people’s radar.”last_img read more

For millions on long-term opioid medications, change will be a challenge

first_imgPinterest A team of researchers at the University of Colorado School of Medicine and the VA Eastern Colorado Health Care System recently surveyed patients to understand barriers to reducing the use of opioids to manage chronic pain. The results of those interviews are published in the current issue of the journal Pain Medicine.Millions of Americans take opioid medications daily to manage chronic pain, but there are growing concerns among health care professionals of opioid misuse and overdose. In early 2016, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued new guidelines, emphasizing a conservative approach to opioid prescribing. For patients already on long-term opioid medications, the transition away from opioid medications can be intensely unpleasant, anxiety-provoking and complex, according to the study.The research team at the CU School of Medicine and the VA Eastern Colorado Health Care System conducted in-depth interviews of 24 patients across 3 health systems in metro Denver to explore the perspectives of patients on this issue. Participants in the study described experiences of decreasing or stopping opioid medications that were complicated by opioid withdrawal symptoms, fears of increased pain and confusing medication changes. However, study participants also described an improved quality of life after the transition. “While the process can be very challenging, there may be a silver lining here,” said Joseph Frank, MD, MPH, assistant professor of medicine and a primary care physician at the VA Medical Center in Denver. “We heard powerful stories of patients reclaiming their lives. It will be important to ensure that patients’ voices are heard in the national conversation about these medications.”Study participants also highlighted the importance of support from family and from healthcare providers. This level of intensive support may be difficult for some outpatient primary care practices, where a majority of opioid medications are prescribed. “To achieve goals of improving quality of life and preventing opioid-related harms, we need better evidence and more resources to support patients both during and after this challenging transition,” Frank said.

Schumer: Feds Will Pay For WH Water Cleanup

first_imgThe briefing was important enough for Senator Chuck Schumer to leave John McCain’s wake in Washington and fly into Gabreski Airport on Friday, August 31, and then return in time for the funeral early the next morning.Leaving the momentous occasion of his friend’s passing underscored the seriousness of the business at hand, Schumer said.“I care about this a lot,” he told a half-dozen county and state officials gathered at the Westhampton National Guard base. He was referring to a bill that would make the U.S. Air Force responsible for the costs of cleaning up drinking water in Westhampton.The Independent, the first local newspaper to report that U.S. Air Force and National Guard bases have polluted civilian drinking water supplies, was invited to attend the gathering by the senator.Senators Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand earlier in the week shepherded an amendment to a Senate Appropriations Bill — fittingly called “The McCain Defense Authorization Act — through the Senate. If the amendment is added to the McCain Act, it will reimburse states, counties, and water authorities that have allocated funds to clean drinking water contaminated with PFOA/PFOS, chemicals commonly used at U.S. Air Force and National Guard bases.There are three bases identified so far in New York including Gabreski, in Westhampton Beach, home of the 106th National Guard, and Stewart Air National Guard Base (Newburgh), home to the 105th Airlift Wing of the New York Air National Guard, a state Superfund site.For years, the bases used a type of foam for aircraft emergencies and training purposes that contained PFOS, or perfluorooctanesulfonic acid, which has been linked to cancer and other medical problems. The Independent learned the chemicals routinely leaked to drinking wells near the facilities, but adopted a policy of not being proactive — waiting until municipalities identified a problem before starting an investigation into the possible causes.“We endeavored to force the Air Force to pay and they resisted,” Schumer related. “We forced them to admit it.”There will be $45 million made available nationally for cleanups in communities surrounding affected bases, including $4.8 for the Westhampton site, the senator said.Schumer, visibly moved by his experience in Washington earlier in the day, strayed from his prepared briefing to offer insights into his relationship with McCain, his fellow Senator.“He was one of my closest friends. We spent the day together the day he voted against their health care plan.” Schumer said McCain traced his lineage all the way back to Scottish kings in the Middle Ages — the McCains were always fighters. “His father and grandfather were both admirals,” Schumer noted.He assured County Legislator Bridget Fleming that he would get an additional $300,000 to reimburse the county for its share of the cleanup costs.The bill now moves to the House of Representatives, where Schumer said there has been some resistance. Congressman Lee Zeldin’s take on the matter accompanies this article.There are other sites contaminated with PFOS/PFOA in Suffolk including Hampton Bays, Yaphank, and Wainscott, but the bill McCain is championing will cover only the federal sites, he stressed. The former Plattsburgh Air Force Base has also been identified as a source of the chemicals.The worst case is Newburgh. “Unfortunately, it’s gotten to the lake,” the senator pointed out referring to Lake Washington.Since discovering the contaminants in wells primarily south of the airport, county and state officials have expanded the test area and put affected homeowners on public water.All of the affected homes are located south of the railroad tracks in Westhampton Beach, and between Beaverdam Creek in Westhampton and Quantuck Creek on the Quogue Village border. Since 2016, the chemicals have been detected in more than 100 private wells and early in 2018, the testing area was widened.“Suffolk County and its Water Authority deserves to be repaid for the actions they took to respond to the contamination of their water supplies and private wells due to toxic PFOS contamination that originated at Gabreski,” Schumer said.The state Department of Environmental Conservation added the 89-acre defense facility to the state Superfund list in September 2016. In 2017, Mark Kinkade, a U.S. Air Force spokesman told The Independent, “The Air Force is evaluating a Suffolk County Department of Health Services report on possible sources of perfluorinated compound contamination in local drinking wells. If our review validates the data and report findings, we will work with local regulators to address the issue.” Sharelast_img read more

Two Arrested After Violent Robbery at Jamesport Gas Station

first_imgA gas station attendant at the Jamesport Valero was hit over the head with a metal object during a robbery on Sunday night. K. VecseyAfter a violent hold up in Jamesport Sunday night, two men have been charged with robbery, one of whom was arrested just last week following a daytime burglary in Bridgehampton.Riverhead Town police said Oscar N. Mayen Orrego and Ludwin G. Perez, both 21, along with a third man who has not been apprehended yet, robbed the Valero gas station on the corner of Route 25 and South Jamesport Avenue at about 8:50 p.m. They allegedly hit the gas station attendant in the head with a metal object and took an undetermined amount of cash from the register.When police received the report, they were given the description of three Hispanic men who had fled in a two-tone Chevrolet work van south on South Jamesport Avenue, then west on Peconic Bay Boulevard.The van then crashed into a building on Meeting House Creek Road and the occupants fled, but police caught up to Orrego and Perez.Police called in the Southampton Village police K-9 unit to assist. Evidence and the cash taken from the gas station was found at the crash scene, according to  police.Meanwhile, the gas station attendant was treated for a head and arm injury at Peconic Bay Medical Center and released.Orrego and Perez, both of whom live in the Riverside-Flanders area, were charged with robbery in the first degree, a felony.Orrego has racked up a slew of charges in the past year. He has been charged with giving fake names. Earlier this summer, he was charged with a string of thefts from parked cars in Quogue Village.Then last week, a Bridgehampton woman came home to find him inside her house Wednesday afternoon. When police arrived and confronted him, he jumped out a second-story window and took off. The Southampton Village police K-9 unit was also called in and helped officers find Orrego. At least one officer was injured in the chase.Under New York State’s bail reform laws Orrego had to be released without any bail set because he was charged with what is considered a nonviolent felony.First-degree robbery however, a violent crime, required bail be set. Both defendants are being held on $150,000 bail each, police said.Police are asking anyone with information to call detectives at the Riverhead Police Department at Sharelast_img read more
