MASON CITY — A plea change hearing has been set for a Mason City man accused of a vandalism spree throughout the community earlier this year. The Mason City Police Department says they arrested 36-year-old Bill Grouette Junior on August 25th and charged him with second-degree criminal mischief. Police say Grouette is suspected of spray painting and writing on the walls and windows of various businesses in the downtown area during the month of August. Grouette originally pleaded not guilty to a charge of second-degree criminal mischief with his trial scheduled to start on October 29th, but online court records show that Judge Karen Salic has scheduled a plea change hearing for October 28th in Cerro Gordo County District Court.
England’s Marco Penge was just pipped in the French men’s international amateur championship when he lost a title play-off on the second extra hole in heavy rain at Chantilly.The honours went to Ivan Cantero of Spain but Penge, who holed a 50-footer to birdie 18 and get in the play-off, was not disappointed. “It’s a learning curve for me,” he said.“I gave it a good go and tried my best,” said the 18-year-old international from Golf at Goodwood in Sussex. “This time it wasn’t enough, but next time, you never know.“I’ve had good start to the year and I’m really happy with the way I’m playing and looking forward to the St Andrews Links Trophy,” he went on. Penge, from the England Golf men’s squad, has proven good form north of the border, having previously won the 2015 Scottish men’s open stroke play.Penge was five-under par and leading the French championship after 36 holes, surging to the top of the leaderboard with a second round of five-under 66, which included an eagle and five birdies. But the third round was washed out by heavy rain and the championship reduced to 54 holes.When play resumed, Penge had to play through heavy rain on his final nine holes, losing at least one shot to the bad weather when he had to putt through puddles. “I wasn’t happy with that, but the putt on the last gave it back to me,” he remarked, after holing the monster putt for a level par last round – and five-under overall.The Chantilly green staff made a tremendous effort to prepare one hole for the play-off, the short 16th. The green was squeegeed and the bunkers were pumped out and, first time round, both players halved in three. Cantero also managed another three at the second attempt to win the championship and the Coupe Murat.Chantilly will host the European men’s team championship this summer and this event attracted an excellent quality field of players keen to gain course knowledge.England Golf’s Men’s Performance Manager, Steve Burnett, watched the final round and commented: “This is a really good result for Marco in a very strong field.”Marco also had the support of his girlfriend, England women’s international Sophie Lamb, who caddied throughout, despite the drenching rain.Click here for full scoresImage © Filipe Farinha 22 May 2016 Marco is pipped in French championship play-off

The doctors posed shortly after the farewell ceremonyAn International humanitarian organization known as “Hernia International” in collaboration with the E&J Medical Center in Ganta, Nimba County, has completed another phase of “free surgical service” on patients with hernia-related diseases.The medical team of doctors from Spain was headed by Dr. Ceasar Rimarer. They performed 208 surgeries on those with hernia-related cases from April 20 – 29, 2018.Children who were diagnosed of hydrocele and women with umbilical hernia were among patients that benefited from the operation. A hydrocele is a type of swelling in the scrotum that occurs when fluid collects in the thin sheath surrounding a testicle. It is common in newborns and usually disappears without treatment by age 1, a medical research has shown. The operation brought relief to hundreds of underprivileged people, who have been suffering from the disease without any hope of treatment due to lack of money for many years.“I thank these doctors and E&J family for providing the free service for us,” said one Evelyn, a mother of a 7-year-old boy who benefited from the exercise.In November 2017, a team of doctors from Slovenia, representing Hernia International, also conducted “free surgical operation” for people with the disease at the same venue.Some of beneficiaries waiting in OPDThe team’s visit marked the fourth since the E&J Medical Center, in collaboration with Hernia International, began the free medical operation.Meanwhile, the Chief Executive Officer of the hospital Representative Jeremiah Koung has also thanked the Spanish team for the operation, adding, “nobody can pay for what you have done.”The hospital’s administrator Victor Kpaiseh gave one of the Spanish doctors a traditional name, “Luah,” which in the Dan language means blessing. The name “Luah” derived from the way the doctor was directing members of the team to remain focus as they performed each of the hernia cases.Kpaiseh then called on members of the team to always remember the hospital and consider it as their own.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

Rangers manager Mark Warburton admits he has sympathy for under-fire Celtic boss Ronny Deila.Deila is under pressure following disappointing European and Scottish League Cup campaigns, while Aberdeen are chasing Celtic hard at the top of the Ladbrokes Premiership.Warburton and his team could put more pressure on the Norwegian in the William Hill Scottish Cup semi-finals, but the Rangers boss feels his counterpart is on the end of some ill-merited criticism. Warburton told Drivetime: “I referred to the goldfish bowl and it is a really passionate football city. I thought London was a football city and then you come to Glasgow and really they live and die for their football.“There’s 14-15 pages every day in the papers, there are radio shows every evening, and it’s scrutiny beyond belief. The fans phone in and it fuels the fire.“So, he’s top of the league. They had a difficult European campaign, okay, but what more can he do?“I do feel some sympathy for him but I think you know when you join a club like Celtic or Rangers, you know what you are putting yourself up for, that’s for sure.”Warburton, whose Championship leaders face Celtic in mid-April, added: “We took 9,000 officially to Kilmarnock on a Tuesday night, pouring with rain, on a Champions League night, but there were nearer 11,000 unofficially. It’s an unbelievable support.“This is the size of the club and we have got to enjoy it. The players have a responsibility, we have a responsibility and if we can get the environment right where they enjoy the responsibility, we will be in a good place. You have to thrive on it.”
Letterkenny General Hospital.Donegal’s largest Trade Union, IMPACT has raised concern that the supports will not be in place for the recently announced new breast consultant post at Letterkenny University Hospital. The public sector trade union which represents over 2000 members in the County, with significant membership at the hospital, has stated that the new Consultant will not be resourced with a dedicated Medical Secretary, a post that is critical for the Consultant in the relationship and dealings with service users.IMPACT North West, Assistant General Secretary, Richy Carrothers said As with everyone else, we were delighted with the announcement that a new breast consultant was to be appointed. But he added “When we enquired as to the appointment of a Medical Secretary, management reported this must be within existing resources. The Medical Secretary is a key link between the Consultant and patients, they are responsible for calling clinics, making appointments, responding to queries from patients, processing GP referrals, ensuring that all medial notes are typed up and patient records are up to date. Without this dedicated clerical/admin support, there is no way a Consultant will be able to be as efficient and effective as they could be”.The union representative added they have raised their concerns with the Letterkenny University hospital management and at the highest levels in the Saolta hospital group.He added “The medical secretary staff in the hospital are already at breaking point trying to cope with staff shortages and overwork and this will simply add to a system that is already significantly overstretched. Management have acknowledged that there is a crisis due to the severe shortages at the hospital of clerical and administration staff, but little is being done to address the problem”.“The Saolta Group trumpeted the announcement of the Breast Consultant with much fanfare and we were delighted to be told that it was on the way, it now turns out that the post will not be staffed adequately. With the best will in the world, the new post will not run at full capacity without the dedicated resources it requires – this is bad news for the people of Donegal and across the North West. Yet again we are being sold short in relation to comparative services on offer elsewhere in the Country.” UNION EXPRESSES CONCERN OVER CANCER SPECIALIST FOR HOSPITAL was last modified: February 15th, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)
Champions: TermonTermon power on to 5th Title on the trot by James TreartyTermon overcome a brave Glenfin to lift the Donegal Senior Ladies title for fifth time at Naomh Mhuire GAA grounds today.Termon who fielded without the influential Yankie Friel sisters were on the back foot for long periods after a disastrous 5th minute goal. Glenfin who opened smartly were pressing when a speculative wind assisted lob from all of 50 meters by Yvonne Mc Monagle deceived the Termon custodian Lara Gallagher to end in the back of the net courtesy of the upright and crossbar. Termon responded and went into the break one point down.But a resilient Glenfin held firm and with the experienced Geraldine Mc Laughlin not at full fitness Termon looked to relinquish the RTE Radio Na Gaeltachta crown.But Termon responded and with the Maureen o Donnell playing a pivotal role Termon went on to claim another title to a score of Termon 4–11 Glenfinn 2–9 TERMON LADIES WIN 5TH GAELTACHT TITLE IN A ROW was last modified: May 6th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:glenfinTermon
