Wellington travels to No. 2 Andale… South Haven to battle Udall in what is a playoff game… Conway Springs hosts Garden Plain

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — This week on tap on football Friday… Wellington has its work cut out for it when it travels to Andale, Udall travels to South Haven which is essentially a playoff game, South Barber comes to Caldwell, and Garden Plain travels to Conway Springs in what may be the least anticipated matchup between these teams in years… Injury situation: The Dukes seem pretty healthy. Tyson Hodson should be back. Brendon Troutman could be back from his wrist injury. Oct. 31Winfieldaway •••••Other Sumner County games:UDALL AT SOUTH HAVEN (CJ COMPUTER pick: Udall) This is a playoff game for both teams. West Elk defeated both Udall and South Haven in District 1 and has all but sown up the top spot in District 1. But the second place is up for grabs. Sedan is also playing in the mix.The Cardinals are hoping to preserve their playoff streak that has run back to 2003. That’s an eternity in the football world. But to do so, they have to win this weekend. South Haven lost 44-42 in overtime to West Elk two weeks ago while Udall lost to the same Patriot team 42-22. Both have beaten Oxford. Wellington21.66741.80014493 The synopsis: Wellington head football coach Tyler Ryan made a startling point at Crusader Club the other day.“Andale has probably the best team they have had in years, probably since they won a state championship,” he said.Oh, boy.Andale last won a state championship in 2007. That’s five Andale teams since that weren’t as good as these 2013 Indians.To say the Crusaders have their work cut out for them may be that, well you know the term.. ” an understatement.”Wellington beat Circle 43-0 in a romp during a rain-induced Friday. Trouble is, Andale was down the road destroying Augusta 73-6.2012 was not a good season for the Crusaders. But Wellington really lost to Andale losing 60-30. The game was notable in that Andale held a 52-16 lead at the half. Ask any Crusader player who played that game last year, and they will tell you Andale just hit harder than the other teams.Andale will typically run you over. Hunter Knoblauch is the leading rusher in Ark Valley-Chisholm Trail League Div. IV with 767 yards. Hank Eck (always an Eck) has 292 yards and quarterback Jared Smarsh has 212.The Indians rarely pass, but Smarsh has thrown for 289 yards this season.So should Wellington even bother showing up?Of course it should. One thing this year’s team has proven – it can play ball with about anybody. Wellington lost to Wichita Collegiate 49-21 but was tied with the Spartans midway through the third quarter before they let the game get away from them. Collegiate has been the one team that gave Andale a game, losing a close one to the Indians 30-28.Wellington will have to put together its best game of the season and then have a little luck on top of that to win this one. But that’s why they play the game. The Topeka Capital-Journal computerized picks: Andale. Follow the game: Twitter: Cueballnewscow. Radio: Adrian Young, play-by-play, KLEY-AM 1130. Television: Sumner Cable TV, Channel 5 (audio). Photos and recaps: Wellington.cc and Sumner Newscow. Wichita Collegiate21.66732.60019899 Andale401.00501.0023864 Oct. 11Andaleaway Sept. 27CollegiateCollegiate wins 49-21. SOUTH BARBER AT CALDWELL (CJ COMPUTER pick: South Barber) Caldwell is sitting on a two-game losing streak. South Barber is just 3-2. This will be a tough matchup for the Bluejays who are still reeling from injuries. AV-CTL standings:  Game’s significance: League title. If Wellington wins this one, it pulls into a three-way tie with Andale and Wichita Collegiate with just Clearwater left to play. Oct. 18Clearwateraway Sept. 20AugustaWellington wins 19-10. Series history: In 2003 Wellington defeated Andale 46-29 and owned a 6-1 advantage on the Indians. Since 2006, Andale has a 8-1 advantage with the lone Crusader win in the 2011 season opener. Overall TeamWinsLossPct.WinsLossPct.ForAgainst Augusta13.25014.20075196 Oct. 25Mulvanehome WELLINGTON AT ANDALE: Wellington (4-1) ranked in the “others” in Class 4A.  Andale (5-0) ranked No. 2 in Class 4A. . Kickoff is at 7 p.m.  Ark Valley-Chisholm Trail-Division IV Circle03005034213 GARDEN PLAIN AT CONWAY SPRINGS (CJ COMPUTER pick: Conway Springs)This may be the one time where this game doesn’t look like a barn-burning winner takes all kind of contest. That’s because Garden Plain has struggled as of late with two straight losses. Last week it lost to Cheney after falling to Wichita Trinity the week before. Trinity then lost to Conway Springs last week.So Conway Springs may be salivating for a chance of beating Garden Plain like a drum, something that just doesn’t happen. The Cardinals are 5-0. The Owls are 3-2. But the thing about a rivalry like this, you never know… Andale:Andale 30 Wichita Collegiate 28Andale 32 Rose Hill 16Andale 37 Clearwater 7Andale 66 Circle 7Andale 73 Augusta 6.

Clearwater12.33332.600135134 STAFFORD AT ARGONIA-ATTICA IN ATTICA (CJ COMPUTER pick: Stafford)Stafford saw success against a depleted Caldwell team on Monday. This could be a good contest. The CJ Computer has just two points separating the two schools. A&A lost handily to Hope last week which is one of the premiere teams in eight-man football. Game night weather: No rain! The temperatures are expected to hover in the 60s and perhaps dip into the upper 50s by the end of the game for a good fall evening. Oct. 4CircleWellington wins 43-0. 2013 season thus far: Wellington:  Notable stats: Wellington’s Colin Reichenberger has 657 yards on 28 receptions, leading everyone in the league by160 yards. Bret Waddell of Collegiate is in second place with 34 receptions and 497 yards.Trevor Nance is currently second in the league passing department with 768 yards, behind Landon Root with 1,169 yads passing. Austin Dunn is second with 622 rushing behind Knoblauch.

OXFORD AT SEDAN (CJ COMPUTER pick: Oxford)The Wildcats may have kissed their playoff hopes goodbye with a loss to South Haven. But Oxford can take care of business with Sedan and hope Udall and South Haven completely self destruct down the stretch. Points BELLE PLAINE AT WICHITA INDEPENDENT (CJ COMPUTER pick: Wichita Independent)Belle Plaine had its highest point total of the season in week 5 against Haven scoring 28 points. Trouble is Haven scored 52. Wichita Independent is coming off a big win over Chaparral 36-20 last week. Close Forgot password? Please put in your email: Send me my password!

I just wish the school board would have put on the replace list, new bleacher for the Middle School track. Those 2x8x12 are so weathered and very easy to fall threw trying to get to the top. Everyone sets on the bottom seats because no hand rails except at each end. A lot of Seniors I seen. I’ll bring my own chair next time. Bleachers are an accident waiting to happen.

Hard working people ought not be treated this way. Just because something may be “lawful” doesn’t make it right. This isn’t Malibu Heights or Boca Raton, it’s Wellington breadbasket Kansas and we don’t do people that way. People need to resign over this. Not cool at all.

Why was the taxes not paid…did the county have the correct owner listed?Was the address current? Is there not two sides to every story? If the appraised value is less than 5,000 I am thinking that these folks do not have 75,000 in the property…how much did they pay and when? If I remember right the city has bent over backwards to give people time to clean up property to avoid demolition… Report Reply 2 replies · active 295 weeks ago +7 Vote up Vote down mom2mykids · 295 weeks ago Not to be rude but it looked like a complete dump, eye sore, etc… BUT City should have notified the bank, if there is a loan on the home it would of been listed on the deed and they could have easily notified the bank and found the owners. My question is, if you are remodeling something like that, wouldn’t you pay the taxes and keep them current, why would you let the taxes go for a year? Sounds fishy to me….

That does not include the value of the “land.” I am sure the land is worth a little more as it is more than likely around 2700 an acre. Not saying this place is worth a whole lot but with 10-20K in renovations they anticipated on putting into it would value it roughly at the 75k range. I see their side and I see Wellington’s side. They should have contacted the bank like everybody else says but what they did was lawful. Putting a notice in a public published reading is considered a reasonable attempt by law. These people will probably be shafted and the city will probably squeak by with this one. They should change their policy after this one though! They don’t need to be getting sued on the taxpayers dime. Report Reply 4 replies · active 25 weeks ago +10 Vote up Vote down Guest · 295 weeks ago Hold on, can we all recall several buildings downtown that needed demolished, the worst being 201 N Washington which transformed into a swan. I don’t know these people, but they don’t live here and 3 months is nothing, if they were remodeling they were doing it on their time frame, not yours. The lawsuit I am guessing is representative of what the home would have been valued at completed (I am not an appraiser so just guessing that was their mindset). As for taxes there are plenty of people behind on taxes, doesn’t mean they won’t be paid and definitely doesn’t mean they should be burned at the stake. For the rest of my 2 cents — the city paid for a business to relocate when a structure next door was compromised, which the city didn’t own any of these buildings but yet they paid for the relocation of the business, so try to figure out why the city does one thing for one and something completely different for another. .

I have seen people posted in the paper for being 2 and 3 years behind on taxes and they don’t tear down their houses. Maybe the City could just pay the suit off out of the contingency account they always pay the hospital electric bill with. Those people should hire a contractor and doze down City Hall.

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments by Shane Farley, Newscow.net and Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — A Burden couple is suing the City of Wellington over a house that was allegedly demolished without their knowledge in the spring of 2013.Tevra Venn and her husband, Jasen Venn, filed the suit this summer. A pretrial conference in the case, set for this week, was postponed.The couple is seeking a judgement in excess of $75,000.The property in question is located at 806 S. Cherry St. in the southern portion of Wellington. According to the suit complaint, it was a first home for the Venns and recently they were working to remodel it and have it as an investment property to be rented.Those plans changed in the summer of 2013 when the couple learned their house and a detached out building on the property were gone. A man who had been taking care of the lawn for the Venns told the couple the structures were no longer standing.“He asked when we had made the decision to take down the house and garage,” Tevra Venn said in a brief interview with NewsCow. “And I was confused, I said, ‘What? The house is gone?’ And he said, ‘yes, it’s gone.’”Neither the Venns or any tenant was living at the residence when the issue with the city began.Tevra Venn did some investigating and learned the demolition had been performed by a contractor on behalf of the City of Wellington. In the suit, the Venns accuse city officials of failing to properly notify all interested parties.That includes the bank that had loaned the Venns the money to purchase the home. The couple continues to pay a mortgage on that residence, even though it no longer stands. Materials inside the residence, intended to be used for the remodel, were also destroyed.Tevra Venn said she approached the city looking for answers before deciding to file the suit.She acknowledged the exterior of the home wasn’t in the greatest of shape, but she said the interior had been partially remodeled and the couple had purchased new siding they planned to install.Power to the home had been disconnected so that repairs to the electrical system could be made.In the suit, the couple contends the decisions leading to demolition were made through government action taken on April 2, 2013. The home was gone just over three months after that when the couple learned of it.Tevra Venn wonders how a property could be deemed in need of demolition and brought to the ground in such a short time frame. She also contends that city officials seemed unreceptive of her attempts to settle the issue amicably without a lawsuit being filed.The suit accuses the city of trespassing on the property by failing to give proper notice of the demolition and for being negligent in formulating a lawful plan to demolish the buildings.In an answer filed by the city in district court in August of this year, Mulvane attorney Michael Brown, legal counsel for the city, denied claims the city of Wellington did anything unlawful and contested the accusation that proper notification had not been given to the appropriate parties.In a city public hearing report filed by the Wellington Code Compliance Office to the Wellington City Council on April 2, 2013, it stated the 806 S. Cherry Street structure was deemed “unsafe and dangerous” and was recommended for demolition. It was one of seven properties on the agenda that gained demolition approval through a resolution.The report said on Feb. 5, 2013, a public notification was made and placed in the legal newspaper, stating the taxes had not been paid in one year and contact could not be established by the owners.It was also observed:“Exterior inspection was made of the property at a reasonable time and date. The primary residence and garage had been deemed unsafe due to damage and decay. Highly visible evidence of water saturated exterior walls present. Roof covering on rear and garage are worn and may not provide a weatherproof seal. Foundation, where visible, shows cracks, fissures and leanings.”The appraised value of the building at demolition according to the Sumner County Appraiser was $4,750.The council approved the resolution unanimously to remove the structure. Council members at the time included Kim Woodrow, John Brand, Larry Shimer, Dana Anderson, Larry Shimer, Lanny Taylor, Terry Nunemaker and Jan Korte.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more

Tom Brady: Sporting News NFL Athlete of the Decade

first_img As we noted after the Patriots’ victory over the Rams in Super Bowl 53, that sixth championship mattered more than it should. For a sports world in which perception is often governed by first-grade math, an approach that is absolutist at best and lazy at worst, a sixth title for this dynasty was a big deal.Now Brady has more Super Bowl wins than any other player in NFL history — just in case it wasn’t enough for him to be the only QB ever to win five; the only player ever to win four Super Bowl MVPs; the Super Bowl record-holder for passing yards, completions and TD passes.Because of what Brady did from 2010 to 2019 to pad what he accomplished from 2000 to 2009, the NFL player of the decade now belongs in the greatest-athlete-ever argument.By the time he’s done playing, he just might shut down that dispute, as well.By the numbers6 Super Bowl championships4 Super Bowl MVP awards3 AP NFL MVP awards3 first-team All-Pro selections14 Pro Bowl selections538 passing touchdowns74,079 passing yards97.0 career passer rating44 game-winning drives35 comebacks218-63 record as starter30-10 record as starter in playoffs Of course, the player who held the greatest stranglehold on the rest of the NFL from 2010 to 2019 was the same guy who dominated the previous 10 years. Brady, who is on the verge of completing his 20th NFL season, has been a Pro Bowl selection after every Patriots campaign this decade. He has won three Super Bowls and appeared in two others. He has played in eight consecutive AFC championship games.SN’s ATHLETES OF THE DECADENBA | MLB | NHL | College football | College basketball | Men’s soccer | Women’s soccer | Men’s boxing | Women’s boxing | Men’s MMA | Women’s MMAFor Sporting News, New England’s comeback win in Super Bowl 49 against Seattle to close the 2014 season featured the Brady performance that cemented his status as the greatest passer in football history. For many more, an even greater Patriots comeback in Super Bowl 51 against the Falcons did the trick. A few years and an additional championship later, the 42-year-old is simply (and unnecessarily) padding his resume.From 2010 to 2019, Brady threw for more than 4,000 yards in seven separate seasons. He recorded 30 or more TD passes in every year but three. In 2018, when he neither threw for more than 4,000 yards nor recorded 30 TD passes, he earned his sixth Super Bowl ring. Simply put: Had NFL teams not doubted the possibility of a player like Jackson translating a skill set that dominated the college game, he would not have been the fifth QB selected in his draft class. His early professional success already has and will continue to force NFL talent evaluators into a newfound open-mindedness. In that regard, Jackson’s influece in the long term could prove historic.There will be competition. Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes already has an NFL MVP award and an AFC title game appearance on his resume, though he is a couple of years older than Jackson. Texans QB Deshaun Watson has a promising trajectory, though he is limited by his surroundings — which is an important factor. Perhaps the greatest accomplishment of an NFL career that will land Tom Brady in the Pro Football Hall of Fame is the conformity the Patriots quarterback has forced upon observers of American sports.At a time when discourse is plagued by divide and subsequent debate in the realm of athletics and elsewhere, Brady creates an anomaly. The best-QB-ever discussion has ceased to exist. Likewise, selecting the Sporting News NFL Athlete of the Decade requires no deliberation.center_img What they’re saying:”There’s no quarterback I’d rather have than Tom Brady. He’s the best. He does so much for us in so many ways on so many different levels. I’m really fortunate that he’s our quarterback and for what he’s able to do for this team.” — Bill Belichick“He’s the leader, the general, the best ever and that is the end of the story.” — Danny Amendola“His overall game is just so much greater than the sum of its parts. And Tom Brady just wins. He knows voodoo … Tom Brady’s the G.O.A.T.” — Von Miller”He’s the most basic quarterback you’ve ever seen. It’s the simplest football that you’ll ever see in your life. He’s figured it out: Don’t complicate football. People can hate on him, y’all can be mad at him, but he’s the best quarterback we’ve ever seen.” — Ray Lewis”You saw that body (at the 2000 NFL Combine). There’s no way you saw six championships in that body. To produce what he has produced, and to play at the level he has played at, is incredible. All of us living should understand how blessed we are to be in this moment while he’s doing what he’s doing. I say yes to comparing him to (Michael) Jordan, and I think what he’s accomplished is more difficult.” — Michael Irvin”He’s not going to beat himself — he’s going to make you beat yourself. You can’t beat that.” — Ryan Shazier”Tom is extremely disciplined. They see the end result on game day, but they don’t see all that he does in the offseason and during the season to maintain his health, his body and his mechanics.” — Drew Brees”The guy has already accomplished so much, he’s the best out there. The way he competes, the way he prepares for the game, the way he practices every single week, it’s just legendary. It makes him the greatest.” — Rob Gronkowski”Tom Brady is a game changer on the field, in the locker room, in life. The only one that can really rival him, that man from the 49ers, Joe Montana, Dan Marino, Peyton Manning. (But) Tom Brady is in a class by himself.” — Deion Sanders”I am the baddest motherf— on the planet.” — Tom BradyThe next decade belongs to: Lamar Jackson, QB, RavensBrady changed the game in the early 2000s when he reeled off three Super Bowls in four seasons. New England notoriously found the QB in the sixth round of the draft, and other teams over the past two decades have been searching for a similar gem. Yet the Brady formula, a combination of work ethic, leadership skills, attention to detail and raw talent, can’t be replicated.Now NFL teams will spend the next several years looking for the next Jackson even though he can’t be replicated, either.The QB the Ravens snagged with the last pick in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft is already dominating the league in a way it has never experienced. At age 22, he needed just 14 games to shatter Michael Vick’s single-season QB rushing record, and his freakishly quick development as an NFL passer has led to 33 passing touchdowns through Week 15, the most in the league in 2019. Brady, of course, benefitted from a stable organization led by arguably the greatest coach in NFL history over the past two decades. Nobody will mistake John Harbaugh for Bill Belichick, but in Baltimore, Jackson has a similarly reliable environment in which to flourish.And it takes an NFL athlete of the decade to know one. Before the Patriots’ Week 10 matchup against the Ravens in November, Brady approached Jackson during pre-game warmups. “You’re doing some great stuff,” the veteran told the youngster. “Big fan.”That night, powered by Jackson’s 224 scrimmage yards, Baltimore hammered New England 37-20.last_img read more
