Employees Donate From Paychecks for 6 Months to Help Family They Never Met

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMoreIn April, friends of Gretchen and Jim Peters in Marshall, Michigan put up a GoFundMe page that raised $12,000 to help make the home wheelchair accessible for their ten-year-old son. Simon was born with a rare genetic disorder (Pallister-Killian Syndrome or PKS), a diagnosis he shares with just 300-500 people in the world.The Peters family had no idea that an Indiana businessman who grew up in Marshall had been so moved by their story that he began planning to do some fundraising on his own.John Wuori, the CEO of Fabric Services in Bristol, learned that the Peters family hoped to one day get an accessible vehicle, but their ongoing expenses currently prohibited that.Mr. Wuori took the story back to his employees and asked them, ‘How much can we raise to help this family?’Fifty-five employees committed to giving money out of their paychecks — and for six months these people continued to donate.A Truck for the Entire Family With 5 ChildrenOn the Tuesday before thanksgiving, Gretchen got a call from her friend, the photographer who set up the GoFundMe page, saying she wanted to come over and get a picture for a company who donated, which didn’t sound unusual. ”‘Get your shoes on,’ I was told and suddenly I could see 12 people in my driveway and a news crew.”It was a representative from the company and some employees.“I was shaking,” she told the Good News Network. “What’s going on?”Then the tall, mild-mannered CEO introduced himself.“We want to present you with a check for a thousand dollars,” Wuori said, and segued into, “to help pay for the insurance.” He gestured toward a big, black accessible MV-1 parked in the road.“This really happened to me!” recalled Gretchen who could hardly believe it, even two weeks later. “It’s so awesome. I went to work the next day. Everybody is just thrilled. I’m just in a fog when people ask, because I am so wowed by this.”When Gretchen brought her son out and he saw the new vehicle, he “beamed and laughed with delight” as they easily rolled his chair into the van. “It’s a little boy’s way of saying thank you even though he can’t talk,” she told the Battle Creek Enquirer.It turns out Fabric Services makes parts for the SUV, so Wuori was familiar with the vehicle’s quality. He didn’t know if they could raise the total amount needed to buy the MV-1, which is custom-built for $50,000, but he was determined that the company would do the best they could.“I’m sharing the story, because I want people to know about these beautiful hearts,” explained Gretchen. “Who does this for people they don’t know — not just once, but for SIX months?”The Christian-based company, which promotes a lot of volunteer activities among employees, on Thanksgiving celebrated seven years as an employee-owned company. They’ve posted the company’s vision on their website, which reads in part: To be a Corporate Citizen that our Community is proud to host.With such Thanksgiving charity, the Indiana town of Bristol is not the only community that is proud of Fabric Services.(READ the story from Battle Creek Enquirer)Don’t Have a Boss Like This?AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMorelast_img read more

Weddle did a little bit of everything for Utes

first_imgE-MAIL: [email protected] Contributing: Dirk Facer, Brad Rock Related SAN FRANCISCO — You’d think the Most Valuable Defensive Player of the Emerald Bowl would get a little more respect that Eric Weddle did Thursday night.The press box announcer had problems with his name all night, calling him “WEE-dle,” “We-DELL,” and “Widdle,” everything but “WED-dle,” as he’s been known by throughout his three-year career at Utah.Weddle was a jack of all trades again in the Utes’ Emerald Bowl victory, playing cornerback, returning punts, running the ball, passing the ball, holding the ball on kicks and even running the ball off a fake field goal.Weddle’s biggest job was watching Georgia Tech’s all-American receiver Calvin Johnson, and he did a superb job holding him to just two catches for 19 yards.”I took it as a challenge, because no one gives you a chance,” he said. “You want to prove everybody wrong.”About the only thing Weddle did wrong was throw an interception in one of his stints as a quarterback. After a botched play, he was trying to throw it away, but had it intercepted in the end zone from 50 yards out. “I didn’t get enough oomph into it,” he said. ANOTHER QUARTERBACK: Utah coach Kyle Whittingham declined comment on his team’s impending quarterback controversy calling it a nice problem to have. He did, however, draw laughs in his postgame press conference by adding Weddle’s name to a pool of candidates for the job that includes Brett Ratliff, who is coming off of the best passing performance in Utah bowl history, Brian Johnson and Tommy Grady. A PLACE IN THE SUN: Utah linebacker Spencer Toone said even if this wasn’t his team’s best season, it deserves a place in history.Asked how the 2005 Utes might be characterized, he said, “I think as one of the teams with the most character.” He continued, “You know what? We’re not going to be characterized as the best team, but as one of the most high-character teams.” MOMENTS TO REMEMBER: Ute defensive coordinator Gary Andersen said despite last year’s historic Fiesta Bowl season, this year’s club provided its own memories.”These kids had every type of life experience you could have,” he said. “They had the lowest of lows when we lost three in a row and now the highest of the highs.” Asked whether finishing as they did this year is as sweet as rolling through every game, as they did last year, he added, “There was a lot of sweetness. Every year is different, but this year provided some very, very sweet memories.” STILL ABOVE AVERAGE: Weddle was both happy and realistic about the Utes’ season, which had a strong ending but a weak middle. “Seven-and-five is still mediocre,” said Weddle, “but it’s better than 6-6.” THE NEXT LEVEL: Utah’s Quinton Ganther, who finished the season with 1,127 yards rushing (fifth-highest in team history), has accepted an invitation to participate in the NFL Draft Combine, Feb. 23 to March 1 in Indianapolis. NFLDraftScout.com ranks him as the 18th best running back prospect. Former Utah quarterback Brett Elliott, who transferred to Div. II Linfield College near his home in Oregon two years ago, is also headed to the RCA Dome that week. He’s also scheduled to participate in the Las Vegas All-American Classic on Jan. 14 and the Hula Bowl in Hawaii a week later. NFLDraftScout.com ranks him 15th at quarterback. Both Ganther and Elliott are projected to be drafted in the sixth or seventh rounds. SENIOR FINALE: Several senior starters concluded their Utah careers at the Emerald Bowl. The now-former-Utes include captains Jesse Boone, Steve Fifita, Spencer Toone and Ganther, as well as Travis LaTendresse, David Dirkmaat, Chad Jacobsen, Eugene Oates, kicker Dan Beardall and long snapper Brock Condie.”It’s been a pleasure having those guys in the program,” Whittingham said of the entire senior class. He praised their hard work and is elated they were able to finish with a bowl appearance. Boone and Fifita each have a game left to play, They’ll represent the Utes in the Hula Bowl and East-West Shrine Game, respectively, on Jan. 21. RECORD DAY: A combined total of 12 individual and nine team Emerald Bowl records were broken. So, too, was the Mountain West’s three-game losing streak in the game. The league’s lone win may stand for quite a while. Starting next season, the San Francisco-based contest enters into a new four-year agreement to pit teams from the Pac-10 and Atlantic Coast Conference. EXTRA POINTS: Scouts from three NFL teams (Seattle Seahawks, Cleveland Browns and Oakland Raiders) and two CFL franchises (Calgary Stampeders and Edmonton Eskimos) attended the game . . . The Emerald Bowl used instant replay for the first time . . . “Buzz,” the Georgia Tech mascot, was at the center of a trademark controversy with Salt Lake City’s Triple-A baseball team several years ago. The matter was eventually resolved and the Salt Lake Buzz became the Stingers and now the Bees . . . The officiating crew came from the Mid-American Conference . . . Attendance was 25,742.

Real Madrid struggle to find solution to Odegaard equation

first_img At the moment, it is expected that the Norwegian will take part in pre-season preparations with the first team, ahead of a loan move to a European club yet to be determined. 09/07/2016 at 21:22 Real Madrid signed the player in January 2015, for 2.8 million euros from Stromsgodset.  CEST The 17-year-old Norwegian midfielder, who arrived at the club with the tag of being a future superstar, has seen his star wane in the last few years and the club is looking for a team to take the youngster. Therefore, the future of Odegaard seems to be in the German Bundesliga, as it is the league which most interests the player and his father.center_img After 18 months with the second string Castilla, he has failed to adapt and has not shown a sufficient evolution in his game to make the leap to the first team. Sport EN The case of Martin Odegaard has become a real headache for those responsible of the sporting structure of Real Madrid. ‘Los Blancos’ are actively searching for a solution to the player’s situation. The ideal outcome would be to loan him to a mid-table Liga club. However, the salary of the youngster makes this a very difficult, and unlikely, option.last_img read more

first_imgShelby Hardy is the last Bearkat to claim an individual tournament title after she claimed three titles, including the Southland championship, her senior season in 2012-13. Alisa White finished second at the Corpus Christi Islanders Classic last season. Senior Alisa White (75-79-77-231) finished in the top-15 while junior Nicole Budnik (78-80-74-232) finished strong to place just outside of the top-15.

Stephen F. Austin’s Rally Falls Short in NCAA Second Round

first_img But SFA once again showed why it has won 61 games over the past two years as the Lumberjacks began chopping away at that deficit. The `Jacks were paced by a key three-pointer from Charles, some timely turnovers, free throws and an authoritative block by Walkup on All-American Delon Wright, pulling to within four at 44-40 with six minutes to go, setting up a frantic finish. Utah responded by building a six-point lead at the midway mark of the opening half at 16-10, answered by a three from Charles and a jumper from Walkup to cut the deficit back to one at 16-15. In a game that played out as a defensive slugfest from the get-go, Utah built an early 4-0 lead, which was quickly answered by a three from Charles, cutting the gap to one. SFA then took its sole lead of the night off a jumper from Parker, leading 5-4 with 15:00 remaining in the opening half. “We just didn’t hit the shots we needed to hit tonight,” said head coach Brad Underwood. “You have those nights where shots just aren’t falling, and tonight was one of those nights for us. But it shouldn’t overshadow what a tremendous year this team has had. I can’t say enough about how proud I am of this team and what they accomplished.” Dallas Cameron and Jacob Parker each finished with six points as Parker struggled in what is normally one of his strengths, going 0-for-8 from beyond the arc. Demetrious Floyd finished with five points while Trey Pinkney dished out three assists, finishing with three points on the night. SFA now sets its sights on the 2015-16 season and a defense of its three-straight Southland Conference titles. The Lumberjacks return four of its starting five, as well as a handful of other key returners. Freshman Ty Charles gave SFA fans a great deal of optimism, finishing with a team-high 14 points, hitting four of his eight three-point attempts, while adding seven rebounds. Thomas Walkup came up just shy of his third-straight NCAA tournament double-double, finishing with 12 points and nine rebounds with five assists. However, SFA’s shooting woes struck once again as the `Jacks were unable to hit the key shot down the stretch and Utah’s free throw shooting put the game away. SFA upped its intensity early in the second half as a pair of free throws by Cameron, a layup by Pinkney and a driving dunk by Parker once again pulled SFA to within one at 26-25 three minutes into the half. PORTLAND, Ore. – Stephen F. Austin had itself poised for another memorable NCAA tournament comeback, trailing fifth-seeded Utah by two with less than a minute to play. But the Lumberjacks couldn’t get the key shots to fall when it counted, falling to the Utes 57-50 in the second round of the NCAA tournament at the Moda Center.center_img 2015 NCAA Second Round Utah 57, Stephen F. Austin 50 Moda Center • Portland, Ore. Records: SFA (29-5); Utah (25-8) After Utah went back on top by four at 48-40, SFA and the Utes exchanged blows over the final five minutes. Trailing 52-46 with a minute and a half to go, Charles banked in a three from the top of the key. Walkup then forced a turnover and Pinkney hit one of two free throws to trail by just two at 52-50 with 40 seconds remaining. SFA closes out another memorable season at 29-5, coming one victory shy of notching back-to-back 30-win seasons. But the shooting drought once again clipped the `Jacks as SFA managed just two field goals over the next 10 minutes with a pair of free throws as Utah used a 17-6 run, building its largest lead of the night at 43-31 with just over nine minutes to play. A key stretch in the contest then came over the next seven minutes as the Lumberjacks were held without a basket while Utah rattled off a 10-0 run, building an 11-point lead at 26-15 with a minute to play. Momentum started to swing back in SFA’s favor, thanks to back-to-back dunks by Tanner Clayton in Parker in the waning seconds, trimming the Ute lead to 26-19 at the half. The 50 points marked SFA’s lowest output of the season, one point shy of the 51 points its registered in the loss at Baylor in November. The loss to Utah also marks the third-straight year a Pac-12 team has ended the Lumberjacks’ season, falling to Stanford in the 2013 NIT and UCLA in the 2014 NCAA tournament. The loss brought to an end the storied career of senior Jacob Parker, who finishes his career ranked 15th in program history in scoring and 12th in rebounding, establishing his place as the all-time winningest Lumberjack in Division I history. SFA shot just 33.3 percent for the game, hitting just 17 of its 51 shots, and was a mere 19.2 percent from beyond the arc, making five of its 26 attempts. Contrast that with Utah which hit 47.4 percent of its shots and 38.5 percent of its threes.last_img
