Facebook Twitter Wind chill advisories and warnings are out for today into tomorrow over a large part of the Hoosier state. The coldest part of this arctic air mass will settle in over the region today and high pressure passes by to the south. Temperatures will fail to make it out of the single digits in a lot of places, and if they do, we still will do no better than the teens in many of those places, even in southern Indiana. Winds will average 10-20 mph, creating well below normal wind chills through the day. The cold air arrival will also wring out some snows in some areas. Most of the best snow squalls will be in the northern quarter of the state, as lake enhancement will provide some extra moisture. Farther south, we should see only clouds, and even those can break up easily as the day moves on.The rest of the week will feature minor rebounds in temperatures, although we really won’t see an expansion back closer to normal until next week. The week will finish dry and the weekend stays dry, although the latest European model hints at a bit of lake driven snow sneaking into the northern tier counties overnight Thursday night into Friday. We think that is probably just a bit overdone, and the snows will mostly stay into MI. See Map at right. By Ryan Martin – Jan 6, 2015 SHARE Facebook Twitter Previous articleMonsanto Corn Rootworm Management Program ExpandingNext articleMidday Update Ryan Martin Wells Fargo Indiana Weather Forecast 1/7/2015 Our early next week system is expanding north just a bit, now bringing some quarter inch liquid equivalents into central Indiana from Monday afternoon through early Tuesday. Temps will be key here. Right now, we see daytime highs still below normal for Monday and Tuesday in the upper 20s. That would signal more snow than rain, especially with any precipitation that lingers through the nighttime hours. Stay tuned for more updates on this event after this morning’s model runs complete. This may be a very interesting event. Temps do not get above freezing until sometime late next week, and even then it could be a struggle. We feel the American model (GFS) is a little overdone on warming…and we like a solution about 5 degrees under its current guidance. That would keep temps below normal through most of next week.Longer term, models keep a nice system fro the 18th-20th. Half to 1.5” water equivalent precipitation is still likely out of this event with coverage at nearly 100% of the state. Current guidance suggests mostly rain ending as snow…but if our overall pattern thoughts hold…we think we can be dangerously close to heavy snow out of this system. As we said yesterday…time will tell. Following that system, we look for temps to take another dive…and finish the month well below normal. BEYOND INDIANA:Weather that Impacts CORN:Good rains stated in Argentina yesterday, and the front will continue to move north. We see no need to alter our thinking of 2-4 inch rain totals combined over the next 2 weeks. The next system hits Sunday through Tuesday, and the third toward the 20th. Temps look good. We did hear some reports of dryness in southern Cordoba…and there may be some areas that have been missed there in the past 2-3 weeks…but the rains over the region through the next two weeks should alleviate any fears of prolonged dryness in That part of the country. There are still several weeks to go before we get into heavy pollination for Corn in the southern part of Argentina’s Corn Belt (southern Cordoba would be the equivalent of southern Minnesota here) Temps remain warm, but not overly warmCorn areas in southern Brazil will pick up some rains in the next week to 10 days, with 1-2 inches still possible from Rio Grande do Sul (RDGS) up through southern Paraná. Farther north, corn areas will be a bit dry through the 17th with only scattered showers. There we can see up to half an inch combined, but only with 40-50% coverage. Models seem to want to back away from heavier rains with a front around the 18th…but the front is still there. We will need to watch temps in northern corn areas in Brazil through the next two weeks, and we can see some heat building in from Minas Gerais up into Bahia. Corn Belt in the US will be cold and dry through the weekend, getting closer to, but still staying below normal next week. Southern corn belt precipitation brings quarter to half inch totals to Areas from I-70 southward Monday and Tuesday of next week…with rains along and south of the OH river and MO river, and snow potential farther north. Potential still exists for moderate to heavy rains around the 18th-20th over 70% of the Corn Belt, with areas north of I-80 the most likely to get missed. Arctic air continues to steamroll in over the northern half of the Corn Belt and upper Midwest, even while south winds try and buffet temps a bit in the southwest. SOYBEAN WeatherHeat stress continues to be a storyline in Brazil soy areas, but so far, we have not heard any serious reports of issues or damage. Over the next 8 days we will see temps hold in the 90s with a few pushes into triple digits, but so far, we have stayed away from super excessive heat inland…most of that has been found closer the coast, where soybeans and other crops generally are not grown. Farther west, normal to slightly warm temps are being found. We like scattered showers with only 40% coverage from now through the 17th. Rain totals will be in the quarter to 2/3rds range with a few isolated higher amoutns due to thunderstorms. This is a somewhat typical corn belt pattern where heat and humidity will keep thunderstorms and showers around in our summers, but where we also hear lots of complaints about being missed. The front for late in the period on the 18th and later still has potential, but is not as strong as a it was shown over the weekend.WHEAT Weather In the US, it is east vs. west…as temps in the west will try and moderate and end up yielding big swings, while temps in the east are slower to rise. The main problem with warming and cool down is likely snowmelt. There will not be any significant precip or snow producing systems between now and the 17th. That system on the 17th can bring big rains to the eastern third of HRW areas, but it will need to dig and tap into a better moisture source to bring rain or snow farther west. Temps next week look to be near or above normal in HRW areas.SRW areas will take longer to move out of the extreme cold. WE finally will push above freezing in some SRW areas late this weekend and early next week, but northern SRW can stay below normal through at least midweek next week. However…with the snows that have fallen…we see no major threat to SRW on a grand scale…even given our temperature expectations over the next 72 hours. The crop is mostly healthy…and should withstand the cold just fine.FSU/Black Sea wheat areas are benign. Cold air hits next week…but is not out of the realm of normal for this time of year. We still expect decent precipitation in the next two weeks, and reports of adequate snow cover are coming in. Home News Feed Wells Fargo Indiana Weather Forecast 1/7/2015 SHARE

Nonetheless, he said he intends to play Friday, with the protective glasses, when the Lakers meet up again with the Thunder, this time in Oklahoma City for the first game of a four-stop trip.“Doing better,” Kuzma said. “Yesterday (the eye) was completely shut. Now it’s open, so I can see a little bit better. Still blurry. I went to the doctor, had like four, five scratches in the eye. It’s all right, though.”Kuzma said initially it hurt to even open the eye, and that it was sensitive to light and “super blurry.”“Couldn’t really see nothing,” he said. “Even yesterday I really couldn’t see much until nighttime … it’s kind of serious. I mean, could’ve been worse. Even now it’s still blurry, it’s kind of scary.” Kuzma also said, in retrospect, he was glad the Lakers’ coaching staff didn’t let him back in the game, because he wanted to continue playing.“I tried to go back in,” said Kuzma, who “pretty much persuaded the training staff to (let him) go out there and shoot at halftime. But (Coach) Frank (Vogel) was being super cautious about my health. Sometimes I’m not, I’m a competitor, but we made the right decision because the next day I couldn’t even open my eye.”“He very much wanted to play,” Vogel confirmed. “I just had to hold him out. Sometimes you have to do what’s in the best interest of the player, and that was the case here.”Kuzma has started to hit his stride recently after returning from a left ankle stress reaction: In his five games before Tuesday’s, he was averaging 18 points and shooting 50 percent from the field and 46.9 percent from 3-point range.Vogel was hopeful the eye injury wouldn’t inhibit Kuzma’s play.“There’s always a concern when you have an injury, especially one that could be a little bit of a nagging injury,” he said. “But we’ll keep an eye on it and hopefully it won’t be a problem.” Yes, he said, in the moment, his career flashed before his injured eye.“Any time you get hurt, it’s always worst-case, especially as an athlete,” Kuzma said. “I’m just thankful that it wasn’t too-too serious.”Related Articles Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions MORE INJURY UPDATESAvery Bradley will be evaluated again Nov. 29, after the Lakers return from their four-game trip. The veteran guard sustained a hairline fracture in a non-weight-bearing bone in his right leg on Nov. 3 in San Antonio.Vogel said he expects Bradley to join the team on the trip, a decision that’s based on the best way for Bradley to receive treatment, the coach said.Also, guard Alex Caruso has a right calf strain, but he is considered probable for Friday’s game. EL SEGUNDO — Kyle Kuzma was rocking new eyewear – and a still-bloodshot squint – at Lakers practice on Thursday, where he expressed appreciation for the extra protection after his right eye was scratched in an ugly accident during Tuesday’s game against Oklahoma City.Thunder forward Darius Bazley scratched Kuzma’s eye on a drive toward the basket in the second quarter of the Lakers’ 112-107 victory. After being struck, Kuzma immediately covered his face and tried to steady himself before he was escorted off the court, his eye bleeding, by the Lakers’ medical staff.Two days later, Kuzma did his best to make light of what was, clearly, a scary occurrence for the 24-year-old forward.“I’m James Worthy now,” Kuzma joked, referring to one of the Lakers’ goggle-wearing greats. “Big Game Kuz. I like how that sounds.”

The details with the tentative dates through December that were previously announced can be found at: http://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/shellfish/razorclams/current.htmlMARINE TOXIN UPDATE:Listed below are the most recent marine toxin levels, as announced by the Washington Department of Health (WDOH) on September 28, 2018. This is the FIRST of two rounds of razor clam samples required by WDOH before any recreational razor clam opener. As you can see, these samples are all below the action level for Amnesic Shellfish Poisoning (ASP) from Domoic Acid, Paralytic Shellfish Poison (PSP) and Diarrhetic Shellfish Poison (DSP). The second and final round of sampling is scheduled for Thursday October 4 with results by Monday October 8.Recall, before a beach can be opened for the harvest of razor clams, WDOH protocol requires that all razor clam samples collected from that beach must test under the action level (20 ppm for domoic acid; 80 µg/100g for PSP; and 16 µg/100g for DSP) on both of the two required sample collections.Note that in all of these samples; only razor clam meat tissue is tested.These samples were all collected on 9/26/18.9/26/18; Long Beach Area E (north):domoic acid = 1 ppmPSP = none detectedDSP = none detected9/27/18; Twin Harbors Area CL (middle):domoic acid = 1 ppmPSP = none detectedDSP = none detected9/27/18; Copalis Area XL (middle)domoic acid = 1 ppmPSP = none detectedDSP = none detected9/27/18; Mocrocks Area BC (south)domoic acid = 1 ppmPSP = none detectedDSP = none detectedFor more information on razor clams, including how seasons are set, population sampling techniques and how to dig, clean and cook razor clams please see the following link:http://wdfw.wa.gov/fish/shelfish/razorclm/razorclm.htm
This article was first published in the May 31-June 7, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times. “Dr. Calendar was an incredible teacher,” said Dara Evans, an associate professor and former student. “He was Virgil to my Dante.”Evans said she was not academically inclined and enrolled late at Brookdale because her parents insisted. Most classes were filled and by default she ended up in Calendar’s 9 a.m. Shakespeare’s Plays class.“He did not stop calling on me, the quiet girl in the back, and saw something in me I certainly didn’t see,” she explained.“My perception was I didn’t have to have the same answers as everyone else,” she said. “I could have confidence in my own voice. He has that gift.”Evans went from a job in sales and makeup to a career as a Brookdale literature professor. She still marvels at his technique.“He knew what Shakespeare’s characters ate for breakfast, what their favorite colors were and didn’t use notes in his lectures,” she said. “It’s an honor to have learned from him and I’m not the only one who will say that.”She’s right. Gilda Rogers was in her 30s when she decided to get a college degree.“Dr. Calendar had such a profound impact on my life,” she said, noting she still can’t call him by his first name. “He’s supportive of everything I’ve done. He’s my No. 1 cheerleader.”An English/journalism major, she’s now vice president of the T. Thomas Fortune Foundation, works in community relations at the Two River Theater Company and founded Frank Talk Multimedia Network online.“He’s authentic,” she said of Calendar. “Very loose, open and funny in class. He just speaks the truth and encourages you to be yourself. I never missed a class.”And she followed in his footsteps as a teacher, working for him in the Poseidon Early College High School program, a collaboration between Neptune High School and Brookdale to enable students to earn their high school diploma and associate’s degree simultaneously.Now that he’s retiring, Calendar’s calendar is an open slate.He knows he now wants to get back to visiting museums and attending lectures and the theater in New York City with his wife, Jody, a former managing editor of the Asbury Park Press and former executive editor of The Two River Times. They also have a five-month-old granddaughter to spoil.He wants to travel and do a lot of walking, both in New York City and Europe. He’s already walked 200 of the 500 miles of the Camino de Santiago and wants to finish the pilgrimage to the shrine of the apostle St. James the Great in the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in northwestern Spain.He met his oldest friend, Steve Dummer, in college and they traveled Europe in 1963.“The dollar was strong and it was cheap to live in Europe then,” he said. “We went to Berlin, London, Paris. We were good at having fun.”Dummer, who lives in Tennessee, pursued a medical career and he, too, has taught and is retired.“Carl’s a good person, curious and gregarious, and we both have a lot of interest in books,” he said. “People who share a formative part of life often make lifelong friends and can pick up where they left off.”And Calendar wants to get Netflix “and some of those channels with the shows everyone is talking about,” he said.“I actually bought ‘Breaking Bad’ because I got so tired of people telling me about it,” he said. “I just never had time to watch much TV.” By Gretchen Van Benthuysen |On June 30, Brookdale Community College visitors may get the feeling that time is out of joint on the Lincroft campus. And they’d be right, because it’s the day popular professor and administrator Carl Calendar officially retires from the school that was founded in 1968, admitted its first students in 1969 and hired Calendar in 1970.That event must have been similar, in spirit, to the 1995 film “Mr. Holland’s Opus” in which Richard Dreyfuss takes a high school teaching job until he breaks into the music composing business and instead spends his career changing students’ lives.Just like Mr. Holland, Calendar became teacher because he needed a paying job.He studied English and German, traveled Europe for a year, and earned a doctorate in comparative literature at the University of Oregon.“I’d been in school until I was 25 and I thought I ought to do some work” he explained. “So I got a job at Brookdale thinking I’d stay a year. And I stayed 48.”It was in his blood. When Calendar was growing up in Middlesex County, his father taught at Rutgers University and his mother was a high school math teacher. His older brother went into the “family business” as a molecular biologist teaching at University of California-Berkley.“Most of the family was into science and math,” he said. “I’m the only one in the arts. I was just good at writing and literature.”Calendar reaches for a calculator when asked how many students he’s taught, which include journalist Brian Williams and movie director/actor/comic Kevin Smith.“I’d say between 9,000 and 10,000 students, definitely over 10,000 if you include the non-credit courses,” Calendar said during a recent interview in his office in Larrison Hall.The first 30 years he primarily taught and the next 18 years he took on more administrative duties. His current title: Institute Dean-Humanities.In April, dozens of former students, colleagues and other well-wishers, including one of the nine students in the school’s first graduating class, attended Calendar’s retirement party.

Former England captain Michael Vaughan branded England’s astonishing battling collapse against minnows Ireland at Lord’s as “embarrassing” after the hosts were skittled for 85 on the first day of the four-day Test on Wednesday.In their first Test match in a summer dominated by the one-day World Cup, England could not even muster three figures against a nation playing its third Test match ever.A week before Joe Root’s side take on Australia in the first Ashes Test at Edgbaston, Ireland’s London-born seamer Tim Murtagh exposed the fragility of England’s batting, taking five for 13 in nine superb overs on a pitch that, while offering some movement, should not have held terrors for a top nation.England lasted 23.4 overs as they were bowled out before lunch on the first morning of a Lord’s test for the first time.To make matters worse Ireland were playing just their third match since being given test status in 2017 — the previous two against Pakistan and Afghanistan ending in defeats.While Murtagh bowled a superb line and length, England’s batsmen were guilty of loose strokes as they ended the day 122 runs behind as Ireland made 207.”When the ball does anything you shut your eyes and hope England get through it,” Vaughan told the BBC’s Test Match Special.”There were some good balls but there was also some timid play and poor strokes.”Let’s be honest, it’s an embarrassment — you’re at the home of cricket, in a Test against Ireland and you’re all out for 85, there is no other word to describe it.”advertisementEngland batting coach Thope on Lord’s horror showEngland’s batting coach Graham Thorpe said the euphoria of winning the World Cup in a dramatic conclusion against New Zealand 10 days ago had played a role, although only four players who played in the final — Root, opener Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow and Chris Woakes — were on duty on Wednesday.”I would say the players have to show an enormous amount of character and mental strength as well to be able to come back down from last weekend and to be playing this week,” Thorpe told reporters after an extraordinary day.”We can’t run away from today’s performance, can’t make excuses — it’s been a bad day.”It was England’s lowest test innings score at home since they were dismissed for 77 by Australia in 1997 and Thorpe said it could work as a wake-up call before the Ashes.”Hopefully the bump in the road puts some of the players back in a better place and we will be ready for Australia next week,” he said. “But the first task is to try and stand up over the next two to three days and put Ireland on the back foot.”They had a great day today and it is up to us to counter attack tomorrow and get ourselves back into the Test match.”Also Read | 127 minutes, Tim Murtagh’s heroics and other stats as Ireland bundle England for 85Also Read | MS Dhoni’s jersey No.7 may not be worn by India playersAlso See:

Coach K speaks with Dillon BrooksOregon took down defending national champion Duke on Thursday night, securing its place in the Elite Eight this weekend. The end of the contest, however, featured a little bit of controversy.On Oregon’s final possession, as the shot clock was winding down, Ducks forward Dillon Brooks launched and hit a deep three-pointer, which was meaningless to the game’s outcome. He then celebrated wildly, clearly irritating some of Duke’s players. As we showed you earlier, Blue Devils guard Grayson Allen wouldn’t shake Brooks’ hand. Coach K reportedly took a different route in response.According to SI’s Pete Thamel, Krzyzewski told Brooks that he’s “too good of a player” to show off. Brooks agreed.Brooks shoots 3 on final poss.
