Both he and his wife had recently received many threatening phone calls, he said.Mosiyshuck published a series of articles claiming that members of the town council made a lot of money from the privatisation of municipal land. He also ran an investigative report on the desire of certain officials to reopen a controversial fuel storage depot that was closed a year ago because it emitted toxic gases.

Corcoran: Wisconsin athletics no longer a one-trick pony

first_imgEverything is bigger in Texas, and that certainly holds true for the stakes when the Wisconsin football team travels to the Lone Star State in August to take on Louisiana State University.But even back in Madison, Wisconsin Athletics is taking a page out of the Texan playbook and going big.As a new group of athletes prepare to come to Wisconsin this fall for their respective sports, and the new class of freshmen prepare for their first year of college, all newcomers alike will enter a Division I university where athletics are often synonymous with success.However, it didn’t used to be like this. In fact, at one point in the not-so-distant past, being a Badger was hardly synonymous with success on the playing field.Wisconsin football struggled for some time after an appearance in the 1963 Rose Bowl, not returning to a bowl game until the 1980s. The Wisconsin basketball team, which won its only national championship in 1941, is now expected to make the NCAA tournament year after year. Even the men’s hockey team went through its own turmoil in the latter part of the 1990s and early 2000s. But thanks to coaching changes and Barry Alvarez becoming athletic director in 2005, Wisconsin has made drastic improvements — and not just limited to one sport or even just to the three previously mentioned.The fact of the matter is that Wisconsin used to be a one-trick pony. Hockey was one of the few — if not the only — good things the Wisconsin athletic department had going for it for the longest time. Legendary coach Bob Johnson built the Badgers into a perennial power in hockey and won multiple national championships while at the helm. But outside of hockey, the Badgers were just plain brutal. Things got so bad in the late 1980s and early 1990s that Wisconsin had to cut five varsity sports, including baseball. The football team was underperforming and hemorrhaging so much money that those sports were no longer in the budget.However, hiring Alvarez as the football coach in 1990 not only turned around the football program but the entire athletic department. Slowly but surely, Wisconsin has made the transition from having a one-trick pony to having a horse in nearly every race.Wisconsin football’s string of three Rose Bowl berths came to a halt this past season, but in the hands of a new coach this season, the Badgers look to be in the driver’s seat to head to the Big Ten Championship Game and perhaps their fourth ‘Granddaddy of Them All’ in the last five years.As for the Wisconsin men’s basketball team, they’re coming off a year in which they set a school record for the best start to open a season and then followed that with an unprecedented run to the Final Four, the first since 2000 and the first in head coach Bo Ryan’s tenure.Things were quite good in the athletic department going into the fall of 2000, as well, with a Rose Bowl win and a Final Four berth the previous school year. But unlike back then, Wisconsin has a lot more going for it today than just football and men’s basketball. The men’s hockey team made its second straight appearance in the NCAA tournament this past year, the women’s hockey team went back to the Frozen Four. Under first-year head coach Kelly Sheffield, the Wisconsin volleyball team made it to the national title game. Wisconsin’s softball team made its second straight NCAA tournament appearance this year. Oh, and don’t forget the Wisconsin men’s soccer team also made the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1995 this year, too.That’s not to say that everything is ho-hum in the land of Badger athletics right now. The men’s hockey team did graduate nine seniors this year and lost two talented players early to the NHL. The football team lost several key members, as well, most notably one of the better running backs in school history in James White and perhaps the greatest linebacker yet in Chris Borland. In addition, the men’s basketball team lost one of the best sharpshooters in recent memory with Ben Brust’s graduation.However, through all of these changes, one thing remains the same: the success of Wisconsin sports is here to stay. By the time this freshman class graduates from this university the wins will outweigh the losses.About 30 years ago, the only thing to cheer for was the end of another drubbing in football and the start of the Fifth Quarter. Thankfully, and more so than ever, right now is a good time to be a Badger.last_img read more

Shropshire’s Williams is England’s champion golf captain

first_img12 Aug 2015 Shropshire’s Williams is England’s champion golf captain Shropshire’s Malcolm Williams is England’s champion golf captain – claiming the title a year after he almost gave up the game.“I was thinking about giving up because I was so bad,” remembered Williams (image © Leaderboard Photography), who was the 2007 captain at Worfield Golf Club.The turning point came at the 2014 final of the England Golf Captains’ tournament when his caddy made a couple of suggestions which, he said, “made a tremendous difference to my game.”He confirmed it today in the 2015 final at Frilford Heath Golf Club, Oxfordshire, when he added 40 points to his opening 35 and won the championship by a point.“This means an awful lot, especially when there are so many captains taking part from all over the country,” said Williams.“I wasn’t expecting it all. Yesterday 35 points wasn’t really anywhere, but 40 points today made a big difference,” added the 16-handicapper.“I was just very steady, nothing dramatic, but it all seemed to come together.”The runner-up on 74 points was Martin Wainman from Wychwood Park, Cheshire; while third place was taken by Alan Brack of Crook, Durham, who had 73 points.The final was played as part of the new Golf Week, a five-day festival run by England Golf to celebrate team and handicap players.Click here for full scores.last_img read more

This time Ronaldo Souza will look to be more Thiago Santos and less Luke Rockhold when he challenges Jan Blachowicz in Jacare’s native Brazil. The duo is all set for the Light Heavyweight main event seizing the limelight and keeping their fans up from their seats. Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza, a veteran in the UFC roster, has very strong control on the mat and John might have a tough time grappling him. At 40, he is an explosive athlete however what causes the slightest tension for the fans is that despite his strong calves, he might be giving up a substantial amount of reach to Blachowicz, who is only one inch taller and has a 78” reach compared to Jacare’s 72”.Jan “John” Błachowicz, on the other hand, might not have physical strength at bay but is known to take over with his strong mental game, which has always rendered the opponent unconscious around the fence. However, the fight is predicted to be very simple and if Jacare can get Blachowicz down then there’s every chance he can get him out of there with a submission, as well.Light Heavyweight Title Bout (Main Event) – Maurício Rua and Paul CraigThe co-main event this week is a reminder of the abode of talent that exists in the Light Heavyweight with the incredible opening act with Maurício Rua and Paul Craig.Keeping his boat afloat this year after that violent knockout by Anthony Smith, Maurício “Shogun” Rua is back this weekend to face Paul “Bearjew” Craig. Craig is almost everyone’s favorite all over the world right now. He may not the best athlete or isn’t as skilled but has got to this level due to sheer hard work and dedication. He’s not terrible from the clinch to be fair, but against some of the more explosive 205lbers, he always has a tough time as he struggles to grapple.Shogun, on the other hand, is a BJJ black belt and a skilled grappler and is known to steer his opponents away by reminding them of his incredibly hard punches. Amongst these two, Craig might have some success early on by clinching with Shogun, but we really doubt his strength and stamina to combat the heat that Shogun’s going to throw at him. Of course, Shogun’s power and finishing instincts undoubtedly remain intact. Advertisementlast_img read more

Survey results highlight roles of women in agriculture

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Women are active advocates for agriculture and successful business owners interested in filling leadership roles, according to a new Farm Bureau survey. A majority of those surveyed, 91%, also believe there should be more women in leadership roles in the industry. More than 3,000 women completed the informal survey online, which was conducted to determine the goals and achievements of women in agriculture.“Women play a vital role in modern farming and ranching,” said Sherry Saylor, an Arizona farmer and chair of the American Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Committee. “We hope to use the survey results to drive our program of work and also to give women their voice and help them make even more of an impact in their communities.”More than 50% of women surveyed have started their own business that’s still in operation; 25% have not started a business but indicated they would like to do so in the future. Respondents cited prioritizing and finding time to accomplish tasks, acquiring financial support and marketing plan development as their top business challenges.Respondents ranked communicating effectively, inspiring and motivating others, and managing conflict among the most important leadership skills for women in agriculture.Another topline finding of the survey was that 75% of respondents are leaders at the local level, 50% are leaders at the state level and 26% are leaders at the national level.All women who are farmers, ranchers, farm/ranch employees, employed in agricultural businesses, pursuing ag-related higher education or supportive of agriculture in other ways were invited to participate in the survey.Full survey results, including comparisons to the initial “Women in Ag” survey (conducted in 2015), are available online at fb.org/women.last_img read more
