The spacecraft — designed, built and owned by SpaceX — was set to blast off in the afternoon for the International Space Station, opening a new era in commercial spaceflight. It would have also marked the first time in nearly a decade that the U.S. launched astronauts into orbit from American soil. In this image made from video via NASA-TV, a SpaceX Falcon 9, with NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken in the Dragon crew capsule, prepare to lift off from Pad 39-A at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida, United States on May 27, 2020. NASA VIA AP But thunderstorms for much of the day threatened to force a postponement, and the word finally came down that the atmosphere was so electrically charged that the spacecraft was in danger of getting hit by lightning. (AP) Liftoff was rescheduled for Saturday afternoon. CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – The launch of a SpaceX rocket ship with two NASA astronauts on a history-making flight into orbit was called off with less than 17 minutes to go in the countdown Wednesday because of thunderclouds and the risk of lightning.
Chris Welsh, a TV announcer with the Cincinnati Reds, was born in Wilmington, Delaware, but moved to Cincinnati, Ohio, at a young age and graduated from St. Xavier High School and then South Florida University. The left-handed Welsh pitched for Robin Roberts at South Florida. Roberts, as most of you know, was a star pitcher in the National League for many years.Chris Welsh’s career was a spotty one at best. His career record was 22-31. He was known then as a crafty left-hander. To the novice baseball fan, this means he could not throw hard so he had to depend on a lot of breaking pitches to fool major league hitters. He came to the major leagues in the early 80’s with San Diego. He also pitched for Texas and Cincinnati. It was with Cincinnati that he posted a 6-9 record. His best season was in 1982 when he went 8-9 with San Diego.If you listen to Reds’ broadcasts regularly, you know that Welsh is very good at explaining baseball to the average fan. He does a pre-game show in which he interviews major leaguers in spring training, and they explain different aspects of the game that are very helpful to young kids trying to learn the game. Chris, at one time, did a lot of coaching in the Knot Hole Leagues in the Cincinnati area.
Batesville, In. — Local leaders, officials from INDOT and Milestone Contractors conducted a ceremonial beginning to the $61 million I-74 reconstruction project. Already signs are being placed and workers are gearing up for a project that will last until 2019.In 2017 work operations and lane restrictions will center around the I-74 exits at New Point and State Road 101.

Ricky Thornton Jr. swept a second straight Kupper Chevrolet Dakota Classic Tour program, winning IMCA Modified and IMCA Sunoco Stock Car features at Southwest Speedway Wednesday night. (Photo by Byron Fichter) By Jackson Braun Going into championship night Thursday at Dacotah Speedway, opening night winner Tom Berry Jr. holds a 14-point lead in the Modified standings over Thornton. Marriott sits third, 24 points back, while Lucas Schott holds fourth 26 points behind. Justin O’Brien sits 29 points behind Berry. The Iowa racer, transplanted from Arizona, found Kupper Chevrolet Dakota Classic Tour victory lane at Southwest Speedway in both the IMCA Modifieds and IMCA Stock Cars for the second event in a row. As the laps wound down, 17th starting Hunter Marriott was hustling his way to the runner-up spot. The last time any other driver found victory lane on tour was all the way back on Sunday when Matt Speckman held off Thornton in the Stock Car portion of the evening. Thornton has won six out of a possible eight features between the two classes. An all-North Dakota front row of Robert Hellebust and Travis Hagen led the 28-car field to the Modified green flag. Hellebust jumped out to the lead early as Thornton loomed behind him from the fourth starting spot. Hellebust was able to make the high line work and get enough momentum to keep his car in the top spot by as little as two-thousandth’s of a second for a few laps in the early running. Modifieds – 1. Ricky Thornton Jr., Adel, Iowa; 2. Hunter Marriott, Brookfield, Mo.; 3. Robert Hellebust, Minot; 4. Jason Wolla, Ray; 5. Jason Hughes, Watts, Okla.; 6. Jeff Taylor, Cave City, Ark.; 7. Joel Rust, Grundy Center, Iowa; 8. Tom Berry, Newburg; 9. Travis Hagen, McGregor; 10. Tracy Domagala, Bismarck; 11. Mike Hansen, Dickinson; 12. Tanner Black, Otis, Kan.; 13.

Hank Berry, Sidney, Mont.; 25. Don Gumke, Jamestown; 26. Billy Kendall, Baxter, Minn.; 27. Travis Mosley, Bearden, Ark.; 28. Troy Cordes, Dunkerton, Iowa. Dalton was able to maneuver lap traffic just as well as Thornton but did not get a good enough run to catch the leader before the $800 checkers flew. Austin Daae, Speckman and Joe Flory completed the top five. With a few more laps, Marriott could have made a race-changing move but Thornton held on to grab the $2,400 victory. Hellebust secured third with Wolla and Jason Hughes behind him. Thornton has had a near-perfect tour in the Stock Cars, with 159 points out of a possible 160. Dalton Flory still sits only seven points behind Thornton, with Speckman nine behind, Daae 10 behind, and five-time champion Zevenbergen in danger of having his four-year streak of being the top dog snapped while he sits in fifth with a 14-point deficit behind Thornton. Flory’s son Dalton was Thornton’s toughest competitor around the 3/8 mile oval, as Dalton found some grip in the low-to-middle groove of the racing surface. Thornton ran his machine up around the high line and made a spectacular move, splitting two lap cars to maintain his lead over Flory. Feature Results Elijah Zevenbergen and Joe Flory, brought the Stock Car field to green. Flory was in contention early but Thornton eventually found his way to the top spot from his third place starting position. Stock Cars – 1. Ricky Thornton Jr., Adel, Iowa; 2. Dalton Flory, Williston; 3. Austin Daae, Estevan, Sask.; 4. Matt Speckman, Sleepy Eye, Minn.; 5. Joe Flory, Williston; 6. Elijah Zevenbergen, Ocheyedan, Iowa; 7. Jace Iverson, Tioga; 8.

Joe Schrodt, Coleharbor. DICKINSON, N.D. (July 10) – Ricky Thornton Jr. looks absolutely unbeatable right now. Several bobbles by Thornton helped Hellebust to create some space and Jason Wolla to contend for second. Thornton was still too smooth, however, as he was able to slide around Hellebust to grab the top spot.

UNDER the theme ‘Coaches pivotal to the development of athletes’, coaches from across Guyana gathered yesterday for the Athletics Association of Guyana (AAG) coaches seminar at the Guyana Olympic Association (GOA) Conference Room at Liliendaal.Present for the afternoon session of the event was Minister of Social Cohesion Dr George Norton, who is also a former Vice President of the AAG.Minister Norton, under his new portfolio, is also responsible for sport and, in very brief but blunt remarks, he extended his office’s support to aid their development to see the continued success of athletics in Guyana.Norton, upon congratulating AAG President Aubrey Hudson for an exceptional year, stated that the athletes’ success would not have been possible without the hard work of the coaches, who often times work with little or no resources.“I want to work with your suggestions. We (Government) don’t know it all, and the best way for us to help is to reach out to you, seeking your guidance as well push to help to ensure a good life for all our athletes” Minister Norton noted.The Minister also stated that his position as being responsible for Social Cohesion in Guyana, will require him challenging the AAG and coaches to diversify the sport of track and field, pointing out that Guyana is multi-ethnic.Several areas were addressed and discussed following questions raised by the coaches to Minister Norton, with Government funding and support being the most important, as well as a Synthetic Track in the City.
This meet, originally scheduled for Oct 16 but delayed due to torrential rains, was carried out in fall sunshine over APW’s still-soggy 5,000-meter course.As they have throughout the season, the Lakers used their superior team depth to prevail against the Mustangs, who entered the meet with just one loss.Cazenovia started the race aggressively and held four of the first five places after one mile before Marcellus’ Alana Bolster seized the lead. The Lakers still held a decisive lead after two miles but the Mustangs’ Meaghan Strempel hung close to the leaders and moved into second place with less than half a mile to go. The Cazenovia runners knew they would have to dominate the middle positions to win the meet with the Mustangs starting out the scoring with just three points as Bolster (22:34) and Strempel (22:51) crossed the line. Senior Captain Isla Stover hung tough for the Lakers, capturing third in 23:03.Cazenovia’s tenacious front pack did their part, seizing four of the next five places in a span of just 53 seconds to lock in the team’s score of 27 points.Lauren McLean (23:18), Claire Braaten (23:26), Mary Williams (23:50) and Finlay Stover (23:56) all ran strong, consistent races to keep the bulk of the Marcellus scorers behind them.Maddie McGreevy displaced the fourth Marcellus runner in a time of 23:59 with Molly Hart (24:22) and Melanie Michael (24:28) adding a bit of insurance as both edged out the final Mustangs scorer to lock in the final score of 27-31.Laura Fitzgerald (25:01) was the ninth Laker overall to cross the line before the first APW scorer finished, more than guaranteeing a perfect score of 15 points and victory over the host Rebels.It was a total team effort as Mia Chesbrough, Emma Steinberg, Grace Dolan, Eleanor Wester, Maggie Rowles, Jenna Steinberg and Alyson Woolbert all crossed the line before the final APW scorer.The double victory was a successful capstone to the Lady Lakers’ decade of cross country action spanning 2010-2019. The league title was its fourth in 10 years to accompany three sectional titles and the sweep brought its win-loss record to 54-6 during the period (.900).The girls will have more than a week to train in preparation for the OHSL Liberty Championship meet, slated for Long Branch Park in Liverpool next Wednesday.

Jacob Freedman is a junior majoring in print and digital journalism. His column “Four-Point Shot” runs every other Monday. To comment on this story, visit dailytrojan.com or email Jacob at email@example.com The atmosphere at the Galen Center had all the reason to be rocking. The Trojans were playing crosstown rival UCLA, tipoff was 7:30 p.m. on a Saturday night, in-house DJ Mal-Ski was spinning some half-decent tunes and even USC hardwood great Nick “Swaggy P” Young was courtside with his son.Yet as the Trojans built a surprising 41-35 halftime lead, splotches of the lower bowl at the Galen Center were empty, and row after row in certain parts of the upper area remained desolate. The Trojans collapsed within the first six minutes of the second half, and by then, the well-represented Bruin contingent was significantly audible even in USC’s most packed student section of the year. After UCLA went on a 24-5 run to open the second half, with the exception of a late Trojan flurry that cut things to 78-71, the crowd remained dormant for the duration except to boo referees’ calls. The students I talked to walking out weren’t even disappointed; they just shrugged their shoulders, enjoyed their free “Crosstown Showdown” t-shirts and happily ventured off to their Saturday night plans.Early returns from the Andy Enfield era have been a mixed bag. He should be given somewhat of a pass due to USC’s mishmash of a roster — not ideal for running his fast-paced, three-point-based system — but there have been times when watching the Trojans has been an exercise in agony. There was the second half of Saturday night, the second half against Arizona, the entire game against Arizona State and a multitude of non-conference home bouts against inferior squads that the Trojans let hang around for far too long. After a low degree of difficulty to the non-conference slate, the Trojans have allowed more than 81 points per game in Pac-12 play. They defeated Cal at Galen for their only conference victory so far, but have lost their other four Pac-12 home games by an average of 14.3 points. In short: The home entertainment has had little value.Enfield has been brief on the home attendance issue. His stance is that while he wishes more fans would turn up to root on his squad, he appreciates the home court advantage the Trojans do have at Galen. My take isn’t as courteous.I usually find it fair to judge a team’s following based on its attendance for the games at the bottom of the interest-level totem pole. But if USC can’t fill out for UCLA, that’s all I need to know. The Trojans’ two most attended home games this season — and the only two filling more than 60 percent of the seats at Galen — have been Saturday night and Jan. 12 against Arizona. Neither were sellouts. Both were filled with opposing fans; UCLA because the Bruins are located a couple miles down the I-10 and up the 405, and Arizona because of the massive Wildcat alumni base in Los Angeles and the timing of the game during winter break. The Trojans have become that type of team, where the loudest contingent of fans is the one cheering for the Pac-12 visitor.I’ll make the never perfect but ever-so-fun football comparison between the Trojans and the Bruins right now.Even on the brightest days of the last 10 years of USC basketball, the farthest the Trojans advanced was the Sweet 16. Meanwhile, as the support for UCLA head coach Ben Howland waned last spring, he won 25 games. How many times has USC won more than 25 games in program history? Zero.Now to football. As the Bruins celebrated their 10-win season in 2013, the Trojans endured a transition season to win the same number of games.Just as the Trojans saw middling football attendance with a coach doomed to be fired, so did the UCLA basketball fans, despite it being the first year at a renovated Pauley Pavilion.So as Steve Alford has UCLA at 18-5 and likely headed back to the NCAA Tournament, Enfield has USC at 10-13 and still looking to double its Pac-12 win total. Howland left the cupboard stuffed with statsheet-filler Kyle Anderson, scoring guard Jordan Adams and the wiry Norman Powell. Enfield got a group of players where for every strength, there’s an equally egregious weakness. While stars continue to fill the Galen Center — just look at Young, DeMar DeRozan and O.J. Mayo — so far, USC has been seeing stars as the losses continue.The future is bright, but sadly for this year’s squad, fans aren’t exactly dwelling on the present.
