Shawnee police set up ‘internet exchange’ space in parking lot that’s under constant video surveillance

first_imgSites like Craigslist have made it more and more common for total strangers to meet up to buy or sell an item.The practice has been great for people looking for specialty goods and deals, but it’s also created an opportunity for criminals, with reports of people being robbed or attacked while making a purchase unfortunately common.In an effort to create a safer venue for people to meet up to exchange payment for goods they’re buying from someone they connected with on the internet, the Shawnee Police Department has established a new “Internet Exchange” spot in its parking lot.Two bright green parking spaces marked “Internet Exchange” sit just yards away from the police department entrance at 5840 Renner. They are also under 24 hour video surveillance from two separate cameras.“The intent of this Internet Purchase Exchange location is to provide our citizens with a location where they can feel safe making an internet purchase exchange,” read a message from the department about the new space.However, the department notes that just because the space is under video surveillance doesn’t mean the feed is being monitored at all times.“Being video monitored does not mean a person is watching each exchange, the location is just recorded,” read the message. “If a person using the Internet purchase exchange parking and needs the police, they need to call 911 or go inside the police department lobby.”last_img read more

After popping the finger back in place and receiving stiches to close the cut, Willis will be sidelined for at least 10 days.“There was blood on the floor,” Calipari said. “Now I wanted to go throw up because now I’m thinking of this kid.”UK’s Poythress at ’75 percent’ healthJunior guard Dominique Hawkins will also be sidelined for at least a month after breaking his right hand during a freak accident in practice when he caught the hand on a teammates’ jersey.Hawkins averaged 7.1 minutes per game in 23 games as a sophomore while Willis averaged 3.9 minutes per game in 19 games last season.Sullivan | Kentucky now follows Ulis’ leadAfter the departure of seven members of the 2014-15 team to the NBA draft, Willis and Hawkins hoped to earn a spot in the primary rotation this season, but the injuries have dealt a significant blow to those chances.“Derek was one of those guys that you’re saying we could have a really good team with two bigs and him at a three,” Calipari said. “You could put him at a four and just space the court and go pick and roll. Now all of a sudden you’ve got 3-pointer shooters all over the place. They’ve got to play zone. And Dominique was defending and getting in the lane. He probably was our leading 3-point shooter.”Sign up to get more like this free in your inbox Session ID: 2020-09-18:4c9af4b8ca16e927a081c64 Player ID: videojs-brightcove-player-520631-4557874329001 OK Close Modal DialogCaption Settings DialogBeginning of dialog window.

North Dakota author details comeback of American buffalo

first_imgNorth Dakota author Francie Berg’s last book about the American buffalo was a guide for adventurers eager to get out on back roads to see the historic sites where the great animal once flourished. Then she found she had more to say.The result is “Buffalo Heartbeats Across the Plains,” a deeper dive into the stories and trails of the last book, with colorful illustrations, historic paintings and photographs for the history buff who may never leave her armchair.FILE – This Sept. 23, 2012, file photo shows buffalo in Custer State Park in western South Dakota. A new book detailing the history of the American buffalo is telling the story of the last great bison hunts in the western Dakotas and efforts to restore the animals that were on the brink of extinction. “Buffalo Heartbeats Across the Plains,” released in June 2018 by North Dakota author Francie Berg, takes a deeper dive into the people and places featured in her previous tour book. (AP Photo/Amber Hunt, File)“It’s a companion piece to the self-guided tour book for people who want to dig a little deeper into the buffalo story,” Berg said.Bison, or buffalo, once thundered across the heart of North America in the tens of millions. But overhunting saw their numbers plummet to a few hundred by the late 1800s.“I could see our country was changing fast,” reads an excerpt from the new book quoting Plenty Coups, the last chief of the Crow Nation, in 1898. “Anybody could now see that soon there would be no buffalo on the plains, and everybody was wondering how we could live after they were gone.”The new book also tells of early restoration efforts by Peter Dupree and other families who took in bison calves and raised them on their lands. By the time of his death in 1898, the family was raising more than 80 bison and spurred restoration efforts.“Tatanka” — the Lakota word for bison — was at the core of its people’s culture for thousands of years, providing not only food but also a spiritual and physical connection.“The buffalo provided virtually everything to live on and live from,” said North Dakota Indian Affairs Commissioner Scott Davis, a member of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.According to the National Bison Association, nearly 400,000 bison are now living in North America, on private ranches, native reservations and public lands like Yellowstone National Park.“That’s something we can celebrate,” Berg said. “We didn’t do a great job saving them, but we did save them.”Dave Carter, executive director of the Bison Association, said he considers buffalo restoration one of the greatest efforts of its kind in modern history. Its success can be seen in the wide availability of bison in restaurants and grocery stores.“The best way to save bison is to eat them,” Carter said, adding that the group recently launched an initiative to bring bison populations to more than 1 million in the U.S. and Canada over the coming decades.The experiences described in Berg’s books cater to history and nature enthusiasts. Her first book on the trail that opened last year covers a recommended two-day journey that starts in Hettinger, North Dakota, leading travelers through pasture and gravel roads and into South Dakota. The trail then turns north where visitors can gaze over the Standing Rock reservation and its herd of more than 250 bison.Sara Otte Coleman, North Dakota’s tourism director, said interest in the state’s buffalo history has been growing, especially among international travelers. She cites a rise in traffic on the tourism department’s web pages detailing buffalo hunting sites.Inspired by Berg’s books, Hettinger Public School Principal Darin Seamands said students at the high school will soon have the option to study the subject in a local history class. Seamands said it gives students the opportunity to learn about Native American culture and history “in our own backyard.”“Everybody needs to know their local history,” she said. “A lot of people think history happened somewhere else.”Follow Youssef Rddad on Twitter: https://twitter.com/youssefrddadlast_img read more

‘Southampton will have Koeman replacement already in mind’, insists Beattie

first_imgFormer Southampton striker James Beattie insists the impeccably-run club will already have a replacement lined up for Everton-bound boss Ronald Koeman.Dutchman Koeman is expected to be confirmed as the Toffees’ new manager this week, with the Merseysiders ready to make him one of the Premier League’s highest-paid managers to temp him to Goodison Park.Bournemouth head coach Eddie Howe and former Ajax manager Frank de Boer are early favourites to take over at St Mary’s if the deal goes through, while the likes of Andre Villas-Boas and Manuel Pellegrini have also been linked with the south coast job.But Beattie, who played for both Southampton and Everton during his playing career, believes the Saints’ hierarchy will have already made their choice.“Southampton are under great stewardship behind the scenes, so I don’t think the departure of Ronald Koeman will be a surprise to the backroom staff,” Beattie told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“Ronald has done so well in charge of the team that he has always been linked with other clubs, so I think even before his departure they would have had people in mind who could step in.“With the way he’s progressed Southampton over the last few years in the Premier League, he’s done a great job. Both clubs have great history, but with Everton under new ownership, I think he’s going to get a big war chest.“Success doesn’t come with money, as we’ve seen before, but he would be a great acquisition for Everton if it all goes through. He’d be someone who can really utilise that money well and push the club forward.”Koeman’s first job at Goodison would be to try and keep hold of the club’s bright young stars, with Romelu Lukaku, John Stones and Ross Barkley all linked with moves away from Everton.And Beattie believes ‘straight-talking’ Koeman will quickly decide on the players he wants to stay and go.The ex-Saints and Toffees frontman added: “Lukaku has made it very clear he wants to leave Everton, although that might all change with the new manager coming in.“But you only want to keep players who want to stay.“If any players want to be somewhere else, than I think Ronald Koeman has proved in the past that he’ll be straight-talking and will get straight to the point with these players whose futures are in dispute.“If they don’t want to be there I’m sure they’ll be able to find another home, and Ronald will go and use his wisdom in the transfer market where he’s been pretty successful.”last_img read more
