That could also make it the most dangerous ever when that increased traffic is combined with holiday related impaired driving. To help reduce needless tragedies this weekend through July 4th, AAA and Budweiser urge everyone to plan ahead if they are out celebrating. This means choosing a designated driver, calling a cab, staying where you are celebrating or finding another safe way home.For those that did not plan ahead and need the Tow To Go program, it is available Friday, June 30th through 6am Wednesday morning, July 5th.  The following guidelines apply:If you are hosting a party, please do so responsibly.

It is offered based on the availability of AAA drivers and tow trucks during times of high call volume.

First-year student wins Dr. Pepper tuition giveaway at Big 12 Championship

first_imgTwitter printThanks to Dr. Pepper, one TCU student won’t have to worry about tuition anymore.Jazlyn Rodriguez, a first-year comparative race and ethnic studies major, won Dr. Pepper’s $100,000 tuition giveaway during halftime of Saturday’s Big 12 Football Championship.Jazlyn Rodriguez Hernandez wins $100,000 at Big 12 Championship thanks to Dr Pepper Tuition Giveaway Saturday, Dec. 7, 2019 in Arlington, Texas. ( Brandon Wade/AP Images for Dr Pepper)The challenge was to see which of the two contestants could throw the most footballs in a giant soda can in 30 seconds, and Rodriguez outscored her opponent by nine, 17-8.Rodriguez practiced for about 30 minutes a day since the week she found out. She would set up five footballs on a chair next to her, go through warmups and have one of TCU’s football players monitor her to make sure she keeps proper form. She discovered the competition when she was applying for scholarships last year, but it was too late to apply. In order to participate, Rodriguez and other candidates had to submit a video explaining how the tuition money will help them make an impact in the world. In her video, she explains how coming from a low-income family had shaped her. “I decided to do this because I took a leap of faith by choosing to attend TCU,” Rodriguez said. “I’ve been paying for school on my own and I know that my family wishes that they could support me financially. This opportunity lifts up so many burdens not only from my shoulders, but the shoulders of my loved ones around me who also wish they could financially support my education.”In her video, Rodriguez spoke about her loved ones and the impact of growing up the daughter of a single parent — the person who has pushed her to get her to where she is now. “I wanted to make sure the viewers felt really comfortable with me; I acted like I was talking to someone who I knew well,” she said.Jazlyn Rodriguez Hernandez wins $100,000 at Big 12 Championship thanks to Dr Pepper Tuition Giveaway Saturday, Dec. 7, 2019 in Arlington, Texas. ( Brandon Wade/AP Images for Dr Pepper)In the time leading up to her shining moment, Rodriguez said she prayed, took slow breaths and listened to her favorite songs to keep her in a good mood. Above everything, she made sure to thank God for everything he’s done for her. “I wish other students like me could experience it. I just took a risk to go there. We put that leap of faith in front of me and God did provide,” Rodriguez said in an interview with Mullen High School.

first_imgHomepage BannerNews WhatsApp Community Enhancement Programme open for applications Google+ Facebook Google+ Publicans in Republic watching closely as North reopens further RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Gardai in Donegal say they have been made aware of a number of extortion emails doing the rounds.Scammers will falsely claim that the recipient’s password has been used to access sensitive information.In one case, the email contained an actual password that the victim used in the past while the other contained one that the recipient had never used.Gardai are warning that these criminals often rely on leaked email addresses stolen from large companies and email providers over the last decade or so and may include passwords associated with the email which have been bought by the scammers.Gardai say while these emails are very threatening in nature and can cause a lot of worry and upset, people are advised to not panic, never give in to what is being asked, never click on the link provided, and to delete the email.If a password is mentioned in the email that you still use, you are urged to change the password on all online accounts immediately.Anyone who has already fallen victim to such extortion emails and has already paid a fee that has been demanded is asked to contact Gardaí.

‘Shock and profound sadness’: Deputy city attorney kills wife, son in murder-suicide, police say

first_imgEvgen_Prozhyrko/iStock(LOS ANGELES) — A Los Angeles deputy city attorney allegedly shot and killed his wife and 19-year-old son in their home on Wednesday before dying by suicide, police said.Eric Lertzman, 60, first killed his wife, Sandra, in the master bedroom of their Northridge home, according to Los Angeles police, and then walked across the hall where he attempted to shoot a woman who escaped and locked herself in the hallway bathroom.Lertzman then shot and killed his 19-year-old son, Michael, according to police.The surviving woman fled through the bathroom window and ran to a neighbor’s home for help, police said. Authorities did not release her identity but according to ABC Los Angeles station KABC-TV, she is Lertzman’s daughter.Lertzman then went back to the master bedroom where he shot and killed himself, according to police.The motive is under investigation, but authorities “believe the recent loss of a loved one and on-going health issues played significant roll,” police said.Lertzman had been with the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office since 2005, Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer said.“It is with shock and profound sadness that we announce that today Deputy City Attorney Eric Lertzman was involved in a tragic incident which we understand resulted in the death of his wife, his adult son and himself,” Feuer said in a statement Wednesday.“Details are evolving, though early reports indicate police were called to the family home because of a domestic disturbance,” Feuer said. “As we search for answers to how this could happen, we mourn the victims and envelop those left behind with our love at this time of unbearable loss. Of course we will provide members of our City Attorney Family with needed counseling and support.”Michael Lertzman was a member of the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity at California State University Northridge, where his fraternity brothers are hosting a candlelight vigil Thursday night.“Michael was a shining light in our community, who always had a smile on his face and brought joy to all of his brothers and anyone who met him,” the fraternity president posted on Facebook.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

first_img Comments are closed. UK hospital staff are swapping jobs with their French counterparts as partof an experiment to help healthcare professionals from different sides of theChannel learn from each other. Under the scheme, Kent-based doctors, nurses and other health professionalswill spend time at the Catholic University of Lille and St Philibert Hospital. Activities covered in the £1m project will range from specialist workplacements to intensive multi-disciplinary programmes. Their French colleagues will observe practices at the University ofGreenwich at Medway, which is spearheading the initiative, and at the Dartfordand Gravesham NHS Trust in Kent. Jenny Kay, director of nursing at Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust, said shewas delighted by the enthusiasm shown by the staff for this “very positiveevent”. “We hope staff from both sides will bring back new ideas, but at thesame time be reassured of their own practices,” she said. “There willbe a forward evaluation process to make sure all the information gained willnot disappear into the ether.” Maureen Mounty, head of the department for health development in the Schoolof Health and Social Care at the university, said the initiative was madepossible by the Eurostar and improvements in communication through e-mail,webcams and online education. “What we have to offer each other is endless. We are overworked andunderpaid compared to the French, and they have beautiful, clean hospitalswhich are being under-used. “But we have a system to be proud of,” she added. “The Frenchare amazed how organised we are and how well we work under pressure – it’s abig psychological boost”.
