A touching letter from the family of the late Dawn Croke has been released today, on what would have been her 33rd birthday.Ms Croke died in a tragic car accident on the grounds of St Crona’s National School in January this year.The beloved teacher and mum of two boys is dearly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her. She was involved in many facets of local life and was a proud Dungloe Mary in 2008. On the occasion of her birthday, Rosses Community School has paid tribute to their former colleague by sharing a heartfelt letter.The letter was written by Dawn’s uncle Paul De hOra a month after her death to express gratitude to the ‘Family of Dungloe’ for their outstanding support and to celebrate her short but beautiful life.“She was pure joy, a light in every room and person’s life that she had ever entered,” Paul wrote.He highlighted the countless good deeds which neighbours, friends, students and strangers carried out in the wake of Dawn’s passing. He thanked those who went out of their way to accommodate visitors to Dungloe. He praised those who showed compassion, sympathy and respect to his family and described their actions as “a reflection of the true Christian spirit and good character of your Community.” Paul said: “You showed us all, I guess what it’s all about at the end of the day “Love”.“In our eyes, out of tragedy you showed your true colors, and a resounding belief in the importance of having good people in your life. Those people are You “the people of Dungloe.” You should be, you actually are deservedly the proudest community in the country. It would be more appropriate to refer to you as the Family of Dungloe,” he wrote.Paul told the people of Dungloe that Dawn’s family were humbled by their greatness: “What struck us while we were up here last month was the special way in which the community stepped in to rally around, support and buoy up their neighbours in their time of sorrow. It was a unique experience, something that seems to be lost in other parts of Ireland. It was something we have not seen in a long time. Anne, Tony and family are blessed to have you as an extended family.”Letter from heartbroken family of Dawn Croke honours Dungloe community was last modified: April 1st, 2019 by Staff WriterShare 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:Dawn Crokedungloerosses community school

For Ohio State and rest of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association, the 42nd and final CCHA Men’s Ice Hockey Tournament will begin this weekend with first-round series at various campus sites. Western Michigan will look to defend its title, and the eventual champion will earn an automatic berth in the NCAA Tournament. Due to conference re-alignment across the college hockey landscape, the CCHA will disband at the end of postseason play. OSU is set to join the six-team Big Ten Ice Hockey Conference in its inaugural season. The fourth-place Buckeyes will enjoy a first-round bye as the field is narrowed from 11 teams to eight. OSU coach Mark Osiecki said the week off is nice to have with his squad’s recent injuries on the defensive end. Sophomore defenseman Al McLean and junior defenseman Curtis Gedig have missed a combined 10 games since Gedig left a contest against Notre Dame on Feb. 1 with a wrist injury. “It’s going to help us to have a week off to heal up, get (Gedig) a little bit more healthy, hopefully get Al McLean back, and see what we can do,” Osiecki said. OSU will return to action for a quarterfinal series with Ferris State on March 15. Game two will be played the following night, with game three on March 17 in the case of a split series. The winner will move on to play in the semifinals at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, Mich., on March 23. Due to the Schottenstein Center’s hosting of the Ohio High School Athletic Association Girls Basketball State Tournament, the Buckeyes will face off with the Bulldogs at the OSU Ice Rink instead of their usual home rink. Despite the limited size of the building, which seats only about 1,000 people compared to the Schottenstein Center’s 17,500 seats, OSU’s coaching staff and players said they are excited to play playoff hockey in Columbus in front of their own fans. “I think home ice certainly is going to help us. It’s going to be interesting playing at the (OSU) Ice Rink,” Osiecki said. Sophomore forward Tanner Fritz said the venue might offer some features the spacious Schottenstein Center does not. “The atmosphere there will be crazy. I think there’ll be a lot of buzz around campus. I think it’ll be a lot of fun for us,” Fritz said. Fritz will look to energize the crowd with his offensive production. The Alberta, Canada, native led the CCHA in conference scoring with 34 points. The February Warrior CCHA Player of the Month was gracious of the support his team offered him throughout the season. “It’s a great accomplishment. I just have to thank the coaches, my teammates and especially my line mates for helping,” Fritz said of winning the league’s final scoring title. Even with the conference’s most dangerous offensive threat, OSU associate head coach Steve Rohlik said the team must continue to improve in practice over the next two weeks. “It’s playoff hockey time, so we’ve certainly got to get better,” Rohlik said. The Buckeyes are seeking their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2009 after their best regular season since finishing second in the CCHA in 2005. Game one of the quarterfinal series is set to begin at 7:05 p.m. on March 15.
Ohio State redshirt junior running back Mike Weber (25) runs the ball in the second quarter of the game against Indiana on Oct. 6. Ohio State won 49-26. Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorMike Weber entered his Ohio State career having to fill some big shoes.Earning the starting running back job in 2016, his redshirt freshman season, with the departure of Ezekiel Elliott, Weber was filling in for a back who ran for more than 1,800 yards in consecutive seasons and went No. 4 in the NFL Draft.Three seasons later, and Weber, now a redshirt junior, is following in his predecessor’s footsteps, forgoing his final season of eligibility for the 2019 NFL Draft following the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1.But Weber will not leave the program the same way Elliott did before Weber ever played a snap.In Weber’s first season, he broke out for 1,096 yards and nine touchdowns, enough to help Ohio State reach the College Football Playoff for the second time.A hamstring injury to begin his redshirt sophomore season was enough to permanently change the outlook for Weber’s collegiate career.Weber missed the opening game against Indiana in 2017, allowing then-freshman running back J.K. Dobbins to earn the start and make an impact.And make an impact he did.Dobbins ran for 181 yards in the victory on 29 carries, enough to earn him a sizable role in the offense for the rest of the season. In 2017, Weber only earned more carries than Dobbins once, rushing 18 times for 82 yards against Nebraska.The running back duo continued to split carries this season, with Dobbins entering the Rose Bowl at 223 carries, and Weber with 157.Dobbins said he’s had no issue with the strategy.“I am not a selfish person. I am a team player first,” Dobbins said. “Whatever the team needs to do to win a game, that’s what we’re going to do. If it’s him getting 30 carries and I get five, and if we win, im fine with it.”Now, splitting carries or not, Weber is a game away from the end of his Ohio State career, and, unless he has the second-highest rushing game of his season, recording 162 yards against Michigan State on Nov. 11, he will end short of 1,000 rushing yards for the second straight year.Weber said he still believes he hasn’t reached his full potential, and that his season did not go exactly as planned.“I felt it was OK. Decent. I did what I could with the opportunities I had, and I just want to finish strong,” Weber said. “You start it, got to finish it.”Having to finish what he started is why Weber will still be playing in the Rose Bowl instead of following in cornerback Denzel Ward’s footsteps from a season ago.Ward decided to forgo the Cotton Bowl to avoid injuries heading into the draft. Defensive end Nick Bosa did the same by deciding to pull the plug on his Ohio State career this season, a few weeks after he sustained an injury in the team’s third game of the season against TCU.Weber said in a tweet he has to finish what the team started this year, which includes a 12-1 record, a third-straight win against Michigan in Weber’s tenure and a Big Ten Championship, Weber’s second.But Weber has a chance to do something more: To finish his Ohio State career as the back it looked like he could have been his freshman season.With 142 yards, Weber can get the second 1,000-yard rushing season in his Ohio State career. With a big game in head coach Urban Meyer’s final game, Weber can prove he is worthy of a high-round pick in the NFL Draft.Weber said on Wednesday before he made his announcement he would leave for the NFL, he wants to send his head coach out win a victory.“That’s something that we take a lot of pride in,” Weber said. “I feel like he deserves it and so do we. So that’s the No. 1 goal.”Though Weber has not been able to top his Second Team All-Big Ten season, he has made his mark in the backfield for the Buckeyes.The redshirt junior heads into his final game with 2,580 rushing yards and 24 rushing touchdowns, averaging 5.5 yards per carry or more every season. He leaves with a 32-5 record in games he played in and he leaves a back who has faced adversity and a split backfield over the past two seasons.Weber sees the Rose Bowl as just another opportunity. “Every day is an opportunity. I just have to take advantage of it,” Weber said.This time, it is Weber’s final opportunity to cement his legacy in an Ohio State uniform.

The legislation ‘the SAFE Banking Act’ would prevent federal officials from being able to punish banks simply “because the depository institution provides or has provided financial services to a cannabis-related legitimate business.” The legislation, currently being discussed by Senate committee, could prove to be a welcome change for Alaska’s cannabis industry, according to Murkowski. Most banks at time time refuse to do business with anyone in the industry because marijuana is still a controlled substance under federal law. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) is working to push legislation that would allow legal marijuana businesses to use banks to store profits made. Sen. Murkowski: “The SAFE Banking Act is intended to resolve these uncertainties, not only for the benefit of the marijuana businesses but also for the states that regulate them.” Murkowski said that allowing marijuana businesses to set up bank accounts could help the state of Alaska manage the businesses better.
