I got one of his books and it was most interesting. And it was concerning, too, because of what the POWs were subjected to. One thing I remember about Wallace’s book was that, to keep his sanity, he said he built houses in his mind, one plank at time. Those POWs suffered. What all, we just don’t know.”The B-29 co-pilot was quoted as having said that every hour as a POW seemed like a month and every second was filled with pain. Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Sherroll Tatom, a native of Banks who makes his home in Brundidge, said he knew Wallace Brown as a young man and remembers when he came home from Korea to somewhat of a hero’s welcome.“Wallace was from Josie and we were close in age,” Tatom said. “He wanted to be a pilot so he joined the Air Force and learned to fly. He was stationed in the Pacific when his plane was shot down and he was held prisoner for about two years.”When Brown came home, there was a joyful celebration in Banks. Some people had been afraid that he would never come home, Tatom said.

Barkley’s six touchdown passes lead Trojans in rout

first_imgThe last time USC visited Folsom Field in 2002 it came away with a 37-point victory over Colorado. This time wasn’t much different.Behind a single-game, school-record six touchdown passes from junior quarterback Matt Barkley, the No. 21 Trojans (7-2, 4-2) toppled the Buffaloes 42-17 in a rare Friday night primetime matchup.Carlo Acenas | Daily Trojan“We talked all week how this is a trap game after the emotional loss last week,” USC coach Lane Kiffin said six days removed from a triple-overtime loss at home to No. 4 Stanford. “It was nice to see our guys play well despite all the injuries we have.”Barkley’s record-setting pass came in the waning minutes of the fourth quarter, as he found freshman tailback Amir Carlisle on a 19-yard screen pass, ballooning the Trojans lead to 24, serving as the final scoring play of the game.“It was awesome,” Barkley said with a grin. “The screen finally worked.”The third-year signal caller had — on three separate occasions — finished with five touchdowns in a single game, against Hawaii and California in 2010 and against Syracuse earlier this season.“I didn’t know it was going to come tonight,” Barkley said of his record-breaking display against the Buffaloes, who ranked to second-to-last nationally in passing touchdowns entering the game.Though USC would finish with its third-highest scoring output of the season, it did trail in the early goings.Colorado (1-9, 0-6) opened the game on a six-play, 69-yard drive that ended when quarterback Tyler Hansen found wide receiver Tony Clemons over the middle of the play for a 38-yard touchdown pass. It marked the Buffaloes’ first lead since an Oct. 1 game against Washington State.But USC responded quickly, scoring 28 unanswered points in the first half — all touchdowns by way of Barkley, who would finish with 318 yards through the air on 25-of-39 passing.On its first drive of the game, Barkley found freshman wide receiver Marqise Lee for a 33-yard touchdown pass. On the Trojans’ third drive, he found freshman tight end Xavier Grimble from eight yards out.Lee would later conclude the first-half scoring outburst, catching a 25-yard pass from Barkley.“The trust is there,” said Lee, who finished with nine receptions for 124 yards and two touchdowns. “And now it’s going to get better and better.”In the aftermath, Lee rushed over to the sidelines, handing the ball to Kiffin after the first-year wideout notched his first two-touchdown game of the season.“I was tired of being called ‘No. 9,’” Lee said. “You have to catch two touchdown passes for [Kiffin] to call you by your first name. So after I took the ball to him”The Trojans, who started three freshmen on defense — all at linebacker in Lamar Dawson, Tre Madden and Hayes Pullard, proved rather stifling against the Buffaloes, limiting them to just one touchdown following the first series.Hansen would find Clemons again in the fourth quarter, but USC’s lead was already well above 20 points by that time.“We have a great class from top to bottom,” Carlisle said of the four true freshmen who started in Dawson, Lee, Madden and guard Marcus Martin. “We have a lot of talent out there and it’s going to be a bright future for USC. We have just been working hard.”USC hosts Washington next Saturday at home in its annual Homecoming game at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum at 12:45 p.m.last_img read more

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast, April 22, 2019

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest A few tweaks to the forecast this morning and they are allowing for a few more dry areas to try and develop over the next week. Unfortunately, we don’t think it will be enough to really give a good planting window statewide. Here is what we see this morning.We are dry all day today. We expect a partly to mostly sunny day with temps near to slightly above normal. High pressure this morning is in northern West Virginia, meaning south winds continue to dominate today on the backside of that high, which will help temperatures climb. Tomorrow, we have some moisture returning to Ohio. We see scattered showers over about 65% of the state. These showers will focus on the northern half to three quarters of the state, with the southern quarter of Ohio seeing nothing really tomorrow. Rain totals tomorrow will be a few hundredths to .4”. Then from tomorrow night through Wednesday, we shift the action south into southern Ohio, with similar rain totals, but coverage down to about 40%.  Wednesday night thunderstorms move into the SW Ohio, and then drift across the rest of the state. Those can have some heavier moisture, with rain totals at .25″-1″ and coverage near 75%. Notice that we see some significant holes showing up in that rain coverage tomorrow through Thursday. That may lead to some locations getting some better drying than others. WE are looking at a fully dry set of days for Friday and Saturday…meaning some of those drier holes can be looking at 3 or 4 days of dry weather in a row. This will be a minority in Ohio, but it is possible.Overnight Saturday night, we see some clouds and can’t rule out a few widely scattered showers. Rain totals will be a few hundredths to .1” with 40% coverage. This really is not a big deal, but we can’t quite wave the “all clear” flag yet. We will be watching to see if this moisture actually goes away. Sunday should be sunny and dry in Ohio again. So, putting it all together, the map at right is a look at combined rain potential for the week, with the period ending Sunday night.However, whether we are able to see that Saturday night moisture fade or not, we finish the 10 day window on a wet note. Rain arrives again for Monday the 29th, bringing .5”-2” over 75% of the state. Scattered showers linger next Tuesday, the 30th and can trigger a few hundredths to .25” with 30% coverage. Then we have rain from I-70 north net Wednesday, May 1st, with potential for .2”-.7” over 60% of the northern half of Ohio. This pattern will bring drying to a screeching halt and will set field work progress potential back once again if it comes to fruition.In the extended period, additional rains are likely for the May 2-4 time frame, with combined totals at half to 1.5”. Coverage will be around 80% of the state. Then after a couple of days of dry weather, another front is likely around the 6th and 7th that brings up to half an inch over 70% of Ohio. Behind that we may be able to put together a drier forecast window into mid-May.last_img read more
