Following his team’s two-point victory against Miami Saturday afternoon, Louisville coach Rick Pitino expressed some concern for the way the Hurricanes handled a potentially-concussed player. In the first half of the contest, Cardinals’ senior forward Montrezl Harrell threw the basketball at the face of Miami center Tonye Jekiri. Harrell was given a Flagrant 1 after referees reviewed the play. The Louisville star said following the 55-53 victory the throw was not intentional, though Hurricanes’ coach Jim Larranaga disagreed. Jekeri, a starter for Miami, began the second half on the bench. Larranaga said after the game his player was suffering from severe headaches. Miami’s trainers originally believed the 7-foot big man had a concussion, before allowing him back into the game. Miami’s handling of Jekeri was troubling to Pitino. Here’s what the Louisville coach said during his post-game press conference, courtesy of the Courier-Journal:“Here’s the ironic thing: Coach Larranaga walked over to the officials, all the way over to the other side. I’ve never seen that. I wanted to know what (Larranaga said). The official says, ‘Well, he wanted to let me know that the big guy has a concussion on that play.’ I said, ‘What motive do you need to know that? He’s back in the game.’“So I called (Louisville football coach) Bobby Petrino — this is no joke — I said, ‘Get a hold of that Miami doctor because, in 15 minutes, a kid went from a concussion to playing and totally healthy.’ We’re sending a plane down to hire that doctor for football. We will never have a concussion ever again. He was back 3-4 minutes later. He walked all the way over there to tell him he had a concussion, then he was back in the game.”That’s a pretty direct calling out of Miami from Pitino. Concussions are obviously something that should be taken very seriously, but it’s impossible to know if the Hurricanes’ medical staff followed protocol or not. This likely won’t be the last we hear of this incident. [Courier-Journal]

Junior forward Tanner Lacyzinski (9) skates with the puck in the first period of game one during Ohio State’s hockey game vs. Michigan State on March 1. Ohio State won 5-1. Credit: Nick Hudak | For The LanternThe Ohio State men’s hockey team’s season is over after losing 2-0 in a low scoring game against Denver in the NCAA West Regional Semifinals.In what was one of the lowest scoring games of the season for the Buckeyes, Ohio State (20-11-5, 13-7-4 Big Ten), a No. 3 seed in the NCAA tournament, was not able to crack the defense of Denver (23-11-5), resulting in its third loss in a row and the end of its season. Ohio State’s head coach Steve Rohlik was upset after what he described as a disappointing end to the season.“We knew the team that’s good first was probably going to get the upper-hand and we certainly had our chances there and it just didn’t work out the way we wanted to,” Rohlik said.The turning point in the match came nearly 40 minutes after the puck drop, when Denver put the first point on the scoreboard with 39.5 seconds left in the second period on a goal by senior defenseman Les Lancaster. Despite Ohio State getting its fourth power play of the match in the third period, the Buckeyes still couldn’t find an opening in Denver’s defense. With 1:30 left in the game, the Buckeyes replaced their goalie with another skater in an attempt to tie the match up and go into overtime. Denver managed to win the faceoff, however, and scored the game-sealing goal with 58.3 seconds to go.Ohio State finished the game outshooting the Pioneers 24-13. Despite the loss, senior forward Mason Jobst was proud of the Buckeyes’ aggressive performance in the first period.“I think going into the game, obviously, we know the style that they were playing and we were playing was going to be mainly defensive and 0-0: that’s what we expected,” Jobst said. “We had the upper hand in shots and we were keeping things simple. After [the first period] I thought we were feeling pretty good.”Senior defenseman Sasha Larocque said it was difficult to comprehend this being his final game in an Ohio State uniform.“We played that Carmen song after every game for the last four years so it was a little bit of a goodbye,” Larocque said. “It’s tough to accept that the best four years of your life are behind you, and you’re never going to throw this jersey on again and play a real game.”

Smith encouraged the parents to stop leaving their children at home, unsupervised and to be far more vigilant in checking the mobile devices on which their children are communicating. The forum was the first in a series arranged in Jamaica by the JTA for ‘Parents Month’ under the theme: “Parents, Take the Time… Be Involved.’ Related Items:cellphones, greg smith, Jamaica Teachers Association
Stafford: “The older generation is just doing what they’ve always done- making the most of the fishery, and working with the system they’ve been given. Fishing for a lot of people isn’t just a job you eventually retire from. It’s a lifestyle that is near impossible to quit.” The report concluded that the ongoing loss of locally held permits in Alaska, whether by sale, migration, or cancellation by the state, suggests the need to develop specific provisions to ensure access to fishery resources remains in Alaska fishing communities for the long-term. The report reviewed programs and policies to address access challenges in Alaska fisheries in the Bristol Bay and Kodiak regions, and what they refer to as the “greying of the fleet”. According to the report, privatization of fisheries access has resulted in increased financial capital and risk needed to enter into fisheries. Of the permits that do remain in rural Alaska, increasingly older fishermen hold them. The average fisherman today is over 50 years old, a decade older than the average fisherman of a generation ago, according to the report. Alaska passed the Limited Entry Act which created a set number of commercial fishing permits, and established the current limited entry system for the commercial fishery entry permit system. The first generation of permit holders were awarded permits from the state, based on their fishing record. They are a property right of the holder and may be sold, bought and are heritable. Research findings concluded that young people, small-scale fishermen, and rural communities have limited access to commercial fisheries where access has been privatized making it difficult for new fishermen to break into the business. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Since limited entry programs were implemented in state commercial fisheries, permit holdings by rural residents local to their fisheries have declined by 30%, according to a report from University of Alaska Fairbanks and SeaGrant scientists. The objective is to “limit entry into commercial fisheries and provide annual licensing and permitting of fisheries to facilitate the management and development of fishery resources for maximum benefit.” Kevin Stafford, Fisherman: “The risk/reward calculation just doesn’t add up for most young fisherman.” Market value for a Southeast seine permit today is around $230,000, and that’s before paying for gear, gas, groceries, and crew. According to the study most fisherman have to take out a loan in order to afford that.
