Osgood man sentenced for unemployment fraud

first_imgIndianapolis, In. — Osgood resident Christopher Bushhorn, 40, pled guilty to unemployment insurance fraud in Marion County Superior Court Criminal Division 3 on Feb. 22, 2019. Through the use of agency records, an Indiana Department of Workforce Development (DWD) employee began an investigation and determined that Bushhorn was working and receiving wages while claiming unemployment insurance benefits.Bushhorn was sentenced to three years of probation and ordered to repay DWD $6,582 for the benefits he fraudulently collected.DWD receives wage reports and new hire data from Hoosier employers documenting who is employed and receiving compensation. The agency uses this information to ensure people are not collecting unemployment insurance benefits while working.Since 2013, Indiana courts have ordered fraudsters to repay millions in restitution to the state’s Unemployment Insurance Trust Fund. “Combatting fraud preserves employer-paid monies in the trust fund for those individuals whom are truly in need of unemployment insurance benefits,” said Regina Ashley, DWD, Chief Unemployment Insurance and Workforce Solutions Officer.You can help combat unemployment insurance fraud and abuse by reporting it online here. Your efforts will help ensure tax dollars are spent wisely and unemployment insurance benefits are paid only to people who are eligible to receive them. You do not need to provide your name or any other identifying information in order to file a complaint.last_img read more

Pardew ‘open-minded’ over Kinnear

first_img The former West Ham boss added: “People who work with me will know that I am my own man. I will manage this football club and manage this team to the best of my ability. “On the back of last year I am even more motivated to do well this year.” Kinnear’s first few days in the post did not go well as he conducted a series of interviews in which he muddled up facts and mispronounced the names of some of the club’s senior players. Pardew said: “Some of the things Joe said he has apologised for, especially getting the names wrong of our players. That needs to be corrected because there is a certain respect needed there. I spoke to one or two players and my staff here and made them very aware of where the position lies.” Kinnear has been charged with the task of implementing the summer transfer plan drawn up in discussions with Pardew and chief scout Graham Carr, and the manager is hoping he will be able to fight his corner with the sportswear magnate. Pardew said: “It is very simple for me: if Joe can persuade Mike to invest in the right manner, then that will be the best outcome for us. As well as we have done in the transfer market, there is always room for improvement. “I have spoken to Joe and had a couple of meetings with him. I have told him what I think the weaknesses in the squad are. Let’s be fair, it’s a squad, not a side, and I have told him I need to strengthen, and I have a couple of ideas.” Club owner Mike Ashley dropped something of a bombshell last month when he parachuted 66-year-old Kinnear into St James’ Park and handed him responsibility for all football-related matters. Pardew, who was on holiday at the time, kept his own counsel as managing director Derek Llambias voted with his feet and resigned, but the 51-year-old manager is ready to give it a go. He told BBC Radio Newcastle: “I’m very open-minded to Joe’s position. I will take it as I see it.” Press Associationcenter_img Newcastle manager Alan Pardew insists he is “open-minded” about Joe Kinnear’s appointment as director of football.last_img read more

O’Driscoll to boost Irish bid

first_img Former British and Irish Lions captain O’Driscoll will be charged with lobbying for support as Ireland start to add substance to their 2023 bid. “This is a very exciting opportunity for Ireland and, while competition will be fierce for what is one of the most prized events in world sport, we will leave no stone unturned in putting together a world-class case for Ireland,” said IRFU chief executive Philip Browne. The Irish Government and Northern Ireland executive have already backed Ireland’s 2023 bid, that was launched in December. Gaelic Games stadia like Croke Park will be vital to Ireland’s bid, and the addition of Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) chief Duffy to the board further underscores the strength of the Irish preparations. South Africa, Italy and France have all joined Ireland in publicly announcing their aim to land the 2023 global gathering, while the United States could yet join those ranks. Former Ireland star Dick Spring will chair the oversight board, with Dr David Dobbin named chief executive. Hugo MacNeill and IRFU chief executive Browne will join the board, with former British and Irish Lions captain O’Driscoll named bid ambassador. Ulster chief executive Shane Logan and Duffy complete the first raft of board nominations, with the GAA director general’s presence further indication the Irish can utilise traditional Gaelic Games venues to bolster their bid. Test rugby’s most-capped player has agreed to assume the chief cheerleader role for the 2023 campaign, after joining Ireland’s newly-formed bid board. Gaelic Games boss Paraic Duffy has been named on the Irish Rugby Football Union’s (IRFU) World Cup oversight board, a further pledge that grounds like Croke Park would host action should Ireland stage the 2023 tournament. World Rugby officially opened up the bidding process on Thursday, confirming they will now accept receipt of expressions of interest to host World Cup 2023. Member unions now have until June 15 to lodge their initial application, with the host not selected until May 2017. A phased bidding process means detailed tender information will not be sent to interested unions until May 2016, with final bids to be lodged by June next year. World Rugby will invite interested unions to a two-day workshop in London on June 4 and 5 this year, to help streamline the first step in the bidding process. Brian O’Driscoll will flex his superstar muscle to boost Ireland’s battle to host Rugby World Cup 2023. Press Associationlast_img read more

John: Hack departs Syracuse after discovering profession he truly loves

first_imgYears ago, when I was just a kid, I had a conversation with my dad about what I wanted to do when I grew up. His message to me was simple: Find something that you truly love, and do it to the best of your ability. Over the years, my dad has always been the supreme example of that. I can’t think of many people who love what they do more than how much he loves being an architect. Though the day-to-day grind has undoubtedly caused its fair share of stress over the years, he genuinely loves his career and enjoys getting out of bed and going to work. Growing up, I often thought about his advice. I wasn’t sure there was anything I would enjoy doing professionally as much as he did. One thing I did love was sports. When I wasn’t playing, I spent most of my time studying and reading about the players of the major professional and college teams. I religiously read my favorite sports writers, Michael Wilbon (long before ‘Pardon the Interruption’ came along), Thomas Boswell and Mike Wise, in The Washington Post. At one point, I was somewhat of a sports encyclopedia. Friends and family members would ask me about certain players, and I could usually give them a full biographical and statistical breakdown. When I was told I could have my choice of any book in a downtown bookstore as a gift, I chose a simple, $20 sports almanac.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text It wasn’t until after high school that I even thought about trying to tackle a career in sports journalism. While many of my friends and colleagues in the student media at Syracuse University have known that this is what they wanted to do since childhood, I just never thought it could happen. Not to me. I didn’t even enjoy writing growing up, and I certainly wasn’t any good at it. So how was that going to work? In addition, I had let myself get sidetracked. I found myself listening to those, most of whom knew nothing about the industry, who would tell me about the difficulties of embarking on a career in print media. Yet that didn’t stop me. I started a sports blog and wrote about anything I thought people would be interested in. I soon found that the more I wrote the more I began to like it, and then love it. Eventually, in what I consider to be a turning point in my life, I bit the bullet and enrolled at SU with one thing in mind: I wanted to pursue what I loved to the best of my ability. I had very little writing capacity (just ask my editors), but I had a desire to learn the craft and found some of the best teachers available at The Daily Orange. During my time The D.O., I’m proud to say I’ve taken my father’s advice and truly found something I love — and I’ve tried to do it to the best of my abilities. Like so many that have gone before me at this newspaper, I’ve worked harder here than I ever have at anything else in my life. When I worked as sports editor while covering the SU football and men’s basketball teams this past season, in addition to being a full-time student, I would joke with my colleagues that we were working the equivalent of three full-time jobs. We barely slept. Yet despite the long hours — whether in the office, writing and reporting, or on a road trip covering a game — it rarely felt like work. I didn’t mind flying to Seattle and back, writing four stories over the course of a weekend. Nor did I mind driving back to Syracuse from Madison Square Garden during the middle of the night to make it to an early morning class the following day. Those experiences, along with the many wonderful people who I’ve associated with along the way, are why I love doing what I do. A very wise person once told me that to have a career in this business you have to love writing even more than you love sports. I hope I’m being honest with myself when I say that I have made that transformation. So after more than 250 bylines, this will be my last in the pages of this newspaper. I may be entering a tough, competitive profession that has been on the decline in recent years, but I’ve found the one thing I truly love doing. And I hope that leads to a career that I not only enjoy, but one that makes me want to get out of bed in the morning. Andrew L.

UCL Review (Early Kickoff): 1-1 Scoreline Dominates Proceedings As Besiktas Secure Last 16 Spot

first_img1-1 scoreline turned out to be the theme for the early kickoff games in the UEFA Champions League (UCL) on Tuesday evening.In Turkey, Besiktas secured a spot in the last 16 despite playing a 1-1 against visiting side FC Porto in their Matchday 5 clash in Group G.Brazilian defender Felipe gave Porto the lead after 29 minutes before former Benfica forward Anderson Talisca levelled matters for the home side with four first half minutes remaining. Neither side could add to their respective goal tally after the interval leading to Besiktas’ qualification for the first knockout stage.FC Porto will however need to wait to confirm qualification in the last group game against AS Monaco at home. A win would be enough to see the former champions through to the last 16.In the other early kickoff, Spartak Moscow’s qualification hopes took a massive dent after they were held to a 1-1 draw with Slovenian side Maribor at home in their Matchday 5 clash in Group E.Maribor held off their more illustrious opponents till the last 10 minutes before Cape Verde striker Ze Luis broke the deadlock in the 82nd minute only for Jasmin Mesanovic to earn a rare point for the Slovenians in added time.The Slovenian side have already been eliminated from Matchday 4 but Spartak Moscow face a battle to qualify for the first knockout stage and will need to beat Liverpool at Anfield on Matchday 6 to have a chance to secure a last 16 place.

Classy Ronaldo spoils Spanish party in 3-3 World Cup cliffhanger

first_imgCristiano Ronaldo broke his goal duck against Spain, scoring a hat-trick in an extraordinary World Cup Group B game which ended 3-3.Spain appeared to have shrugged off a tumultuous backroom crisis and were cruising to a 3-2 victory until Ronaldo curled a lovely free-kick very late to spoil the Spanish party.Bullish Diego Costa twice cancelled a Christiano Ronaldo brace before Nacho powered the Spanish in the lead with a volley of breathtaking genius. But Ronaldo came in with his majestic strike.There was a tangible sense of anticipation the night on which the two neighbours were paired in Group B and on the day when they met at Succhi Russia, that anticipation turned into sumptuous drama, a great football spectacle and a World Cup classic for many nights.Spain had sacked their coach Julen Lepetegui two days into the World Cup. They did not end there. They slapped a €18.8 million tax fine against Cristiano Ronaldo just hours into the game and took the stakes even higher but the big Real Madrid man knows how to turn adversity into great fortune.The man who until today’s game had never scored against Spain, netted a hat-trick in spectacular fashion and left Nacho, his teammate at club level scratching his head and De Gea gnashing his teeth. In what was more an El-Classico than a World Cup game, the big Real Madrid man, playing against four of his teammates, handed Spain a nightmarish start with a powerful penalty four minutes into the game.He had been caught late by the trailing leg of Nacho after his trademark stepover and down he went with referee Rocchi pointing to the spot.Ronaldo sent De Gea one way and put the ball the other way before heading towards the corner line for a Portuguese jubilation.David Silva had the opportunity five minutes later to draw level but he skied his shot in the vital area with his weaker right foot. The Spaniards were beginning to dictate the pace with a fondness of possession but it was the Portuguese side that broke away on a counter in the 20th minute. Ronaldo selflessly laid the pass for his partner who had De Gea at his mercy but he fluffed his line. Three minutes later the Spaniards struck and it was Diego Costa who knocked down Pepe with an elbow, dummied two Portuguese defenders before striking low and hard to beat Rui Patricio in post for the Portuguese.The Spaniards were in control, with the sleekly individual display and an even admirable teamwork. But Portugal were composed in defence looking for a break.At this point it was difficult to blink an eye because to do that was to take a risk of missing an action or a great skill.In one of those special Isco moments, the Real Madrid man fired a powerful left volley that begged for a goal-line technology after hitting the bar and bouncing off the goal line. Rocchi was right in waving play-on and the technology proved later it was a right decision to take. Then in the 34th minute, Iniesta had his strike whisk just wide after a sublime build-up by the Spanish side.The Spanish side looked more menacing in front of goal but it was Ronaldo who got the Portuguese noses in front again in the 44th minute. He needed help from De Gea. The goal machine who scores with every part of his body fired a low shot on his left foot but the Manchester United allowed the ball to slip through his fingers just before recess.Back from the dug-out, it was the Spanish side who needed a goal badly and that man from the other side of Madrid gave it to them. Costa tapped in from close range after a Busquet header but it was Iniesta’s freekick that caused the damage.2-2 it was with two men scoring a brace each and looking for the icing on the cake. Costa was taken off by Hierro a decision the Spanish coach will rue later on perhaps. But even before that, Spain went ahead in the 56th minute with a goal from an unlikely source, a goal with class and finesse.Nacho who was picked ahead of his superior teammate at Real, Carvajal, wrapped his foot around the ball and blasted a half-volley just at the edge of the 18-yard box for his first goal on international duty.An overstretched Patricio could still not keep the volley away because the goal post kept it in and gave the Spaniards another bragging right.It looked settled. The Spaniards were in control. Ronaldo was getting increasingly frustrated and was either swearing at the referee or throwing the balls at his opponents. But when Pique fouled him just on the edge of the 18-yard box in the 88th minute, all Ronaldo needed was to breathe in and out, watch the position of the human wall curled a lovely little one beyond the wall and turned De Gea into a tour guide watching the ball enter his own net.3-3 it ended a fair result on a night of great football spectacle.last_img read more

In those 12 years, Wellington has had an entree place in 10 of those 12 years. 2015 is no exception, as the sister team of Madi and Mekenna Adams, clinched a seventh place finish in the doubles competition of the Class 4A State Tennis Tournament in Winfield on Saturday. They become the first sister team in Wellington history to have placed in a state tournament. Madi, the senior, finishes as a two time state qualifier. Mekenna, a sophomore, is now a two time state placer, having placed ninth last season with Maggie Fink.   “What a run this was,” said Brian Aufdengarten, Wellington head tennis coach. “Three or four weeks ago I didn’t know if the sisters playing together was going to work.  They made adjustments and so did us coaches and it all fell together.”   Wellington took two doubles to the state tournament. Dietra Sober/Madi Lewellen did not place but picked up a huge first round win at the Vaughan tennis courts. Overall, the team finished 12th. The following is a synopsis of the two days the two teams had. More pictures can be found here. Madi Adams finishes her high school career as a two time state qualifierThe Adams sisters Adams girls opened with Angleton/Wendt from Chanute in the first round and easily won 6-1,6-2.   “We played well,” Aufdengarten said. “Madi was attacking the net and volleying extremely well. We felt like Chanute was a dangerous team but didn’t have the consistency on their shots on each series.” .The girls then played a team with a bye in the first round and fed into Carlsen/Slettehaugh from Bishop Miege.   “We didn’t have our best performance here,” Aufdengarten said. “The Bishop Miege team played an awkward style with a player starting off of the court and running in on a serve or both players at the baseline with the server running up.” The girls won the first set 6-4 and the second set 7-5.  This win guaranteed the girls could play on day two and be a state medalist.   “I was so happy after this match,” Aufdengarten said. “We wanted Madison to get to day two this year and get a medal, and we wanted Mekenna to get another medal.” The pair then lost in the quarterfinals to Ediger/Ivers from McPherson 6-0, 6-3.   “The first set we never really competed,” Aufdengarten said. “In set two, we got their attention and jumped up 3-2.  Man we were playing well there. It was very impressive going against one of the top teams in the state.: On Day 2, Adams/Adams opened up with Parsons and fell behind 4-1.   “After I talked to them about cutting down on unforced errors, we rallied off eight straight games to win 9-4,” Aufdengarten said. The Adams sisters then played Bellah/Roets from Smoky Valley.  It was a close match as they were neck and neck up until 6-6 then Smoky Valley won three in a row to win 9-6.   “The match was so even,” Aufdengarten said. “Smoky Valley had 25 winners to our 15 winners, that is were the game was won.   This put Wellington in the seventh place match were they played Nussbaum/Cody from Collegiate.  Wellington won the match 9-6 to finish seventh.   Madison ended her career as a two time state qualifier and ending with 90 wins for her career.  Mekenna now has a ninth place and seventh place medal in two,years along with 53 wins.   “I know this is something these two can always talk about doing this with your sibling has to be a great feeling and sense of pride,” Aufdengarten said.Dietra Sober is a senior for Wellington.Sober, Lewellen As far as the other doubles teams, Lewellen and Sober beat Wright/Farris from Parsons 5-7, 6-3, 10-4.   “We fell behind 5-1 in the first set then settled down and started our comeback,” Aufdengarten said. “This was a nice win. We had lost to this team at the Tournament of Champions 8-4. “It showed we are a better team now, that was the girls second meet ever playing together.”  Next Sober/Lewellen lost to Ediger/Ivers from McPherson 6-2, 6-1, the same duo that would beat the Adams sister later.   “This is a very good team and we didn’t play too badly,” Aufdengarten said. “The McPherson team finished second overall.” In Sober/Lewellen’s next match they played Cunningham/Hale of Spring Hill.   “We stayed even for a long time but just couldn’t get it going against them.,” Aufdengarten said. The Wellington duo led 5-4 but then lost three straight games and trailed 8-5.Madi Lewellen should return as one of the two premiere players on the Wellington team next fall.  “I told them let’s give it everything we got and get it to a tiebreak and our girls responded tying it at 8-8,” Aufdengarten said. In the tiebreak, Wellington had two match points but couldn’t get two points in a row.  Spring Hill won the tiebreak 10-8.   “It was such a heartbreaking loss,” Aufdengarten said. “We were all kind of stunned after the match.  These two did so well they only played in four meets together before regionals, I’m so proud of the two of them.” The pair ended up 15-8 together.  The Wellington state girls tennis records can be found here.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
