The decision accepts Epstein’s explanation that injuries to Mike Olt and Tommy La Stella prompted the timing of Bryant’s call-up to the Cubs in April 2015.

Mason City council approves interim permits to allow outdoor dining, sidewalk sales

first_img TAGS Mason City Iowa Coronavirus Mason City Council MASON CITY — The City Council in Mason City last night approved changes of an ordinance that would allow interim encroachment and sidewalk service area permits to help businesses during the pandemic.City Code allows for encroachment permits, which permit private outdoor use of city-owned property, and sidewalk service area permits, which allow private outdoor use of adjacent sidewalks.The current process for allowing such things as outdoor dining or sidewalk sales is typically somewhat lengthy and onerous, and City Administrator Aaron Burnett says while each application is unique, the use of interim permits would allow more rapid deployment of outdoor business activities for business owners seeking quick methods to return to business while remaining health conscious. “Some of them will be fairly easy to move through the interim process. Others depending on things like the width of the sidewalk, making sure that it’s not blocking pedestrian passage, making sure we have egress for buildings, things along those lines get a little complicated. It really depends on that application and how quickly that business can provide the information for consideration and approval. It can move very quickly if all the information is together and filed with the office.”Burnett says there has been interest in the interim permits. “We did receive interest from a business with all this discussion. We already received interest from other businesses. I think this will be a useful tool to move things through.”The council approved the ordinance changes, waiving the first and second readings and approving it on the third and final reading to allow the changes to take place as soon as possible. sidewalk sales private outdoor patio use City Administrator Aaron Burnettcenter_img City Council in Mason City Mason City code encroachment permits outdoor dining Mason City COVID-19last_img read more

DeSantis Says Children’s Illness is “Extremely Rare”

first_imgHowever, Wolfson Children’s Hospital in Jacksonville confirmed on Thursday that it had two patients with cases of MIS-C.Additionally, 12 patients in the Jacksonville area who have been treated at Wolfson since mid-April who are now suspected to have had the illness.South Florida has had another six cases, with five patients still hospitalized. One patient who was being treated at Holtz Children’s Hospital in Miami was discharged last Friday.MIS-C is most common among school-age children. Patients who meet the definition of the syndrome must be under 21 and have a fever, laboratory evidence of inflammation, have a clinically severe illness requiring hospitalization and must test positive for a novel coronavirus infection, or have been exposed to it within the four weeks ahead of the symptoms’ onset.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published information on May 15 on its website, after the illness emerged in New York. As of Friday, New York health officials said they were investigating 161 reported MIS-C cases in their state. There have also been three deaths.UPDATED: Local Children Diagnosed with Illness Possibly Linked to COVID-19 Gov. Ron DeSantis late last week called a childhood illness that has been tied to COVID-19 “extremely rare,” despite reports of at least eight confirmed cases in our state.He added that parents can decide whether they believe their children are at risk.“I think it’s something parents should consider. It is extremely rare,” DeSantis said Friday of the illness known as “multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children,” or MIS-C.DeSantis made the comments during a news conference in which he announced that coronavirus-related restrictions on youth activities have been lifted for the summer. However, he deferred questions about MIS-C to Bonnie White, a pediatrician who appeared at the news conference.“It’s my understanding that we haven’t seen any cases, that Wolfson (Children’s Hospital) is monitoring seven kids for symptoms of it, but as of yesterday they haven’t had any cases,” White said.last_img read more

Cancer-stricken Cooper leads Dream into playoffs

first_imgAtlanta Dream coach Michael Cooper talks to his players during the first half of Game 1 of the WNBA basketball Eastern Conference semifinals against the Chicago Sky on Friday, Aug. 22, 2014, in Atlanta. Chicago won 80-77. (AP Photo/John Bazemore)ATLANTA (AP) — Michael Cooper remembers the day well. The sun was shining bright, yet the notorious Atlanta heat wasn’t too stifling. The sky was a brilliant blue, speckled with only a few puffy white clouds.As he looked out the eighth-floor window, all seemed right with the world. His job was going well. His wife and young son were good.Then, the doctor delivered one word that changed everything.Cancer.“I’m like, ‘OK, how long do I have to live?’” Cooper recalled. “That’s the first thing that came into my mind.”The defensive stopper for the Los Angeles Lakers during their glorious “Showtime” era of the 1980s was facing an opponent unlike any other.“This lets you know that life is fragile, and it can be taken away from you at any moment,” Cooper said. “Here I was, just going along, having a great time down here in Atlanta with a team that I know can win a championship, and the next thing you know, they tell me … ‘You have cancer.’ Now, tongue cancer isn’t as bad some cancers. But cancer is cancer.”Cooper is in his first season as coach of the Dream, a team that finished first in the Eastern Conference after reaching the WNBA finals three of the last four years.The Dream were dominating the East with a 15-6 record when Cooper went in to have a small spot on his tongue checked out. It seemed like a cut, but just wouldn’t heal. It had become quite annoying, making it difficult for the 58-year-old to chew, drink or swallow.The specialist knew right away it was cancer. Cooper underwent surgery six days later to have the lesion removed. Also, his lymph nodes were taken out, reducing the risk of the disease spreading but leaving a gnarly scar down the left side of his neck.The very day of his surgery, Cooper’s 83-year-old father, Marshall, was buried. He had been in failing health, and the two were able to visit a few weeks before he died.“I flew to LA on a weekend when we had some days off,” Cooper said. “I told him I loved him, said all the things I wanted to say. We laughed and talked. I told him, ‘Pops, if you’re hanging around for me, don’t hang. I’m OK.’ That was the last time I saw him.”Instead of grieving, Cooper actually took a bit of comfort from his father’s death as he was wheeled into the operating room.“I knew I had another angel up there looking out for me,” he said. “I knew things were going to be all right.”The cancer was caught in its early stages, according to Cooper, and the chances of a full recovery are good. He’ll need to undergo about six weeks of radiation after the season, but hopes the worst of his ordeal is over.He missed only six games, but the Dream took a definite turn for the worse while he was out, eventually losing nine of 11.“Anytime you’re on a team, you want consistency, you want familiarity,” said DeLisha Milton-Jones, a 15-year veteran. “When you’re thrown a blow like that from the head coaching position, I mean, he’s your first leader. When you don’t have him there, of course the team may stumble a little bit. And we did.”Now, there’s a chance to make it right.A best-of-three series against the Chicago Sky begins Friday night. Atlanta, led by top scorer Angel McCoughtry and rookie star Shoni Schimmel, is favored in the East. But no one outside this locker room really believes the Dream (19-15) can knock off the Western Conference champion Phoenix Mercury (29-5) or the Minnesota Lynx (25-9) — should they get that far.Cooper, meanwhile, is still adjusting since returning to the bench.He tires more easily than he did before, and he’s been told not to raise his voice while his tongue recovers. He talks just fine, other than swishing saliva around his mouth more frequently, but relays instructions during the games through assistant coach Karlene Thompson.But this is where he wants to be, where he needs to be.“It’s been great to be around the team,” Cooper said after a recent practice at Philips Arena. “With my wife and son back in Los Angeles, the team has been like a comforting thing for me. It’s like family coming here. That’s why it was important to come back as fast as I was able to come back.”His eyes darted around the court. One player was getting in some extra free throws. Another was shooting from 3-point range.“This is what love,” Cooper said, smiling like a man whose life is back in order. “Being in a basketball gym. The smell of hoops.”Cancer couldn’t take that away.___Follow Paul Newberry on Twitter at www.twitter.com/pnewberry1963last_img read more
