Family, Friends Of Missing Homer Woman To Hold Candlelight Vigil

first_imgChristina Whiting, administrator the Bring Duffy Home Facebook group: “There’s no resolution – she hasn’t been found, one way or the other. So, it’s difficult for the community, the family, the friends, to move on. We’re all in kind of a holding pattern. I just think it’s Homer: we’re a small community, it’s a tight-knit community, whether you knew her or not. Whether you know her family or not, she’s one of us. Many people won’t come, but many people are sharing the posts, many people will light a candle at home, people have donated money, people are sharing the flyers. I think it’s really important that people keep talking about her.” Murnane has been missing since October 17 after she was last seen in a security camera image leaving her Main Street apartment.  Homer Police and Alaska State Troopers issued a Silver Alert on October 19 after she was reported missing that day.  A Silver Alert is for an adult considered a vulnerable person. FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享On Saturday, friends and family of Anesha “Duffy” Murnane, a missing Homer woman, will hold a candlelight vigil for her from noon to 2 p.m. at WKFL Park. Her friends and family have not been shy about their belief that she was abducted, despite police not being able to officially name a cause of her disappearance.  The family is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to her return.  The case is also listed actively on the Peninsula Crime Stoppers website. Anyone with information on her whereabouts can call Homer Police at 907-235-3150 or the Silver Alert hotline at 855-745-8799.last_img read more

Under first-year coach Jim McElwain, the Gators enter with an 8-1 record and the Southeastern Conference’s Eastern Division title already in hand.While Florida is a strong favorite to defeat the Gamecocks in Saturday’s noon game, playing at home in front of family and friends could help the Gamecocks pull out a win. Elliott is confident USC, playing only its second game at Williams-Brice Stadium in its last six will be ready.“I think they take pride in winning and going out and playing a good football team,” said Elliott. “You know anytime you can measure yourself to a really good football team and you’re setting the stage up, ‘Now this may be the best left tackle you’re going up against or the best defensive end. How are you going to stack up individually?’“I think that’s the same way our team looks at it. A great opportunity to go out and put up a good showing against a great football team with a heck of a head coach and staff and just see exactly where we are. And when you look at us the last two weeks, three weeks, you go Vanderbilt, A&M and Tennessee, we’ve stacked up pretty well. We haven’t gotten over the hump, but you know we’re knocking on the door, and somebody’s going to answer it shortly. Our team, we feel like we match up.”Elliott is happy with the effort he has seen from the Gamecocks and hopes, despite back-to-back heart breaking losses to Texas A&M and Tennessee, they will put together a winning formula at home.“You’ve got to see the player’s eyes,” said Elliott. “You’ve got to let them know – when I say you’ve got to see their eyes, you’ve got to look them in the eyes and they’ve got to believe in what you’re telling them.“You can’t have a guy over in the back corner thinking about something else when we’re down 17-3. If you engage that football team and I mean really engage them with your eyes. You look at them across the room and you can feel they believe in what you’re saying, then you’ve got a good chance to go out.”South Carolina interim coach Shawn Elliott talks with cornerback Chris Lammons (3) after a play during the first quarter against Texas A&M.South Carolina interim coach Shawn Elliott talks with cornerback Chris Lammons (3) after a play during the first quarter against Texas A&M.

He doesn’t even want to hear questions of USC being relevant only as a team with the ambition of upsetting others.“Those teams who say, ‘Hey, let’s go play spoiler,’ that’s kind of a joke to me,” sad Elliott. “Our goal is to win football games. It doesn’t matter what their rank or how successful they are, we are to go out and compete.“Any man with a competitive spirit wants to go out there and win.

Other Sports Everest Premier T20 League Featuring Chris Gayle In Nepal Postponed Due To Coronavirus

first_imgNew Delhi: The Coronavirus outbreak continues to wreck international sporting calendars with cricket being the latest casualty. The Everest Premier T20 League in Nepal, which was slated to be the first T20 League in the country and was set to feature the greatest T20 player in Chris Gayle, has now been postponed due to the Coronavirus. The league, which was slated to begin on March 14, would also feature the likes of Sandeep Lamichhane and Afghanistan’s Mohammad Shahzad apart from Chris Gayle. In a report on ESPNCricinfo, the organisers stated that it would be held at a time when it was deemed favourable.”We are naturally all sad at today’s announcement of having to temporarily postpone the 2020 EPL, but we simply have to put the health and wellbeing of all Nepalis and our overseas players before everything else. We would like to thank the government of Nepal for their support and counsel through this challenging period, and we support entirely the professional advice throughout. I would like to assure that as soon as we are able to go ahead with the 2020 season, we will be working to ensure that it will be a spectacular event the likes of which Nepal has never seen before,” Everest T20 League’s managing director Aamir Akhtar said to ESPNCricinfo.Nepal has only one confirmed case of coronavirus so far. The country’s health ministry has, however, asked for a suspension of gatherings to minimise the risk of a spread. The coronavirus outbreak has resulted in massive havoc across sports.

Pamela Anderson says marriage still in the cards following breakup with Jon Peters

first_imgABC/Lou Rocco(LOS ANGELES) — Pamela Anderson isn’t giving up on love, despite her breakup with Jon Peters in February, just 12 days after a ceremony in Malibu in which they were believed to have been married.In an interview with The New York Times published on Thursday, the former Baywatch star, 52, says she and 74-year-old Peters broke up before they even filed for a marriage certificate.“I wasn’t married. No,” says Anderson, adding, “I don’t know what all that was about, but I think fear really played a lot into it.”“It was just kind of a little moment,” she continues.  “A moment that came and went, but there was no wedding, there was no marriage, there was no anything.  It’s like it never even happened. That sounds bizarre, but that’s it.”As for how the brief romance with her friend of 35 years occurred, Anderson recalls, “I was in India and I went to this panchakarma cleanse, and I’d been gone for three weeks in this ayurvedic center, meditating, just so clear.  I came back and VWOOM, within 24 hours, I saw Jon.  It was like this little whirlwind thing, and it was over really quick, and it was nothing. Nothing physical.  It’s just a friendship.”Anderson’s has previously been married to Tommy Lee from 1995-1998; Bob Ritchie — a.k.a. Kid Rock from 2006-2007; and to twice to Rick Salomon from 2007-2008 and 2014-2015.I spite of that, Pamela says she’s ready to give marriage one more try.“Absolutely! Just one more time. Just one more time, please, God. One more time only. Only!” she jokes.By George CostantinoCopyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
