T his month’s column is an important call to action for EMS agencies to support the National EMS Memorial Service and, more specifically, the families of those who have lost their lives while performing EMS duties. First, let me give you some important background. In 1991, recognizing that EMS lacked a mechanism to recognize and honor those who died performing EMS duties, the Virginia Association of Volunteer Rescue Squads established the National EMS Memorial Service. The first ceremony was held in 1992 in Roanoke, Va. The memorial service is a carefully planned weekend of events for the survivors of the deceased, including co-workers, to meet collectively, reflect, celebrate the lives lost and continue the healing process.The first service was so inspirational that word soon spread throughout the country, and additional EMS agencies began to attend and support the memorial service annually. I won’t go into great detail here about this year’s service because we have multiple articles on JEMS.com that describe it, including an article on the outstanding efforts of participants in the National EMS Memorial bike ride program and the Muddy Angels Bike Riders who ride to honor our fallen EMS personnel and draw attention to the memorial service. What I will tell you is that it’s an inspiring and unforgettable ceremony that should be better attended by EMS agencies and officials to show support for the fallen and their survivors, to reflect on why each person died and to focus attention on how we, as an EMS community, can develop programs, procedures and equipment to avoid unnecessary injury and loss of life whenever possible. I was asked to serve as the keynote speaker at this year’s memorial service and I reluctantly agreed to do so. I say “reluctantly” because I’d delivered a keynote at the service before that honored and inducted two close friends many years after their deaths. I remembered how difficult it was at that service to get the words out as they circulated through the emotional depths of my brain and heart.One of those honored was one of my best friends and partners. She was killed in a MedEvac helicopter crash on the first nighttime on-scene mission in 1982. The other was my father’s longtime EMS partner, who was hit by a car and killed while crossing a dark highway to reach a psych patient who jumped from an overpass and sustained minor injuries. I remember thinking how wonderful (and important) it was for these two young, dedicated people to be recognized and memorialized years after they’d been killed in the prime of their lives and perhaps forgotten because of the lack of a permanent EMS memorial. I also knew that if I was still grieving after such a long passage of time, so too were the families and friends of the other inductees.So, when asked to speak at this year’s memorial service, the first to be held at its new, permanent site in Colorado Springs, I felt it was not only an honor to be asked, but I also wanted to help recognize the momentous occasion. I was naive and thought I’d be more emotionally prepared to get through my remarks this year. But, after reading the reasons why and how each of the 26 inductees died, reflecting on how very young many of them were and meeting their family members, it was a daunting task.It was my hope that my speech (available on JEMS.com) would help heal the emotional wounds of the surviving spouses, children, parents, friends and co-workers in attendance. However, although the National EMS Memorial Service organization raises funds and provides lodging for many of the families, their financial resources are limited, and this year, nine of the 26 families were unable to attend the ceremony due to their inability to pay the necessary travel expenses. In their absence, a member of the EMS honor guard accepted their commemorate medals, roses and American flags at the Saturday evening memorial service. As I sat and observed the ceremony, I couldn’t help but feel that the EMS community needs to band together to provide the necessary sponsorship funds to enable all the families to attend this important weekend to memorialize their loved ones. It would be a wonderful show of support if EMS agencies and organizations throughout the country contacted the National EMS Memorial Service committee and offered to sponsor a relative to attend next year’s service. It would also be a nice gesture for agencies sponsoring family members–and agencies from states affected by line-of-duty deaths in 2010–to send service representatives and/or honor guard members to the 2011 memorial service to show support and ensure that the families and friends have all the assistance they need to heal their emotional wounds.

This drawing shows several retail businesses in the caves which open onto the central courtyard – site of the old pool – with one other business at the higher grade closer to Roe.Roeland Park Mayor Joel Marquardt Monday showed the city council a dramatic new concept to transform the city’s old swimming pool site and the adjacent limestone caves into a potential restaurant, retail, and entertainment center.The site is along Roe Avenue at 48th Street. The city swimming pool was there until the early 1990s when it was closed and filled in. The limestone wall next to the old pool site has caves that were mined out and now have been backfilled to some extent. Marquardt estimates that 25,000 to 30,000 square feet of retail space potentially could be opened up inside the caves. He said the area at one time housed the showers and locker rooms for the pool.In the drawings that Marquardt, an architect, produced and shared with the council, the retail or restaurant space can open onto a courtyard that could hold a large number of tables. That space, roughly the same size as the Power and Light District common area, could be used as an entertainment venue as well as for outdoor dining.The city has been working on ideas for developing its vacant property, the old pool site and the northeast corner of Roe and Johnson Drive among them. Marquardt has been meeting with an ad hoc group of architects and other professionals to develop ideas. In showing the concept drawings, Marquardt noted the proximity to I-35, the large traffic count on Roe Avenue, the dense residential population in the immediate area and the high profile of the site. He also noted the relative lack of restaurant and bar service in the city.Another possibility he said is to place a hotel on the top of the cave site. His plan showed the potential for 260 parking stalls close to the area and a total of 456 close by. The mayor acknowledged challenges with the steep topography of the area and engineering issues to make sure the space is usable and could support a building on top. “Dome outs” or open spaces at the top of the caves is another engineering question.“How good of a project could we get out of this site,” the mayor posed. He said it is not sure the concept could be built, but that it might generate some excitement about possibilities for repurposing the area. He said some people have been mildly interested in the idea and some have been excited. Another concept that has been proposed is a restaurant incubator site at the space.The mayor emphasized that the city does not have a deal for the site and is not working with any developers on a deal. He said he was “just talking about what people are thinking.”This overhead schematic shows the potential caves development and it proximity to Roe Avenue with parking laid out.

SPRINTING legend Usain Bolt has continued to approach his upcoming tryout with Borussia Dortmund with as much vigour as he did while dominating track and field over the course of 10 years.After enlisting the help of former Reggae Boyz-turned-coach, Ricardo ‘Bibi’ Gardner, Bolt has continued making sure he doesn’t go to Dortmund without any experience training at the top level.In South Africa, Bolt trained with Mamelodi Sundown, an African ABSA Premier League side, who share the same sponsor as the eight-time Olympic gold medallist in PUMA.Bolt has, for a long time, toyed with the idea of playing professional football but only recently, got an offer to train with Dortmund, after which the double world-record holder over 100 and 200 metres says he could try out with Manchester United.The retired sprinter has, for even longer than his own ambitions of playing, been in love with Manchester City and his tryout with Dortmund is just to see if he might be good enough for a shot at making it to the club he has loved since he was a boy.“One of my biggest dreams is to sign for Manchester United. If Dortmund says I’m good enough, I’ll crack on and train hard,” said Bolt in an interview earlier this year.“I’ve spoken to Alex Ferguson and I told him he needs to put in a good word. He told me if I get fit and ready he will see what he can do.”Since those comments Bolt has leaned on Gardner, who trains Harbour View FC in Jamaica’s Red Stripe Premier League, but has pointed out that while this is a goal of his, his success or failure shouldn’t be seen as a big deal.“I am always confident in everything. You have to go into everything confident. I know I will be a little bit nervous but it’s not a life-or-death situation. It is just something that I personally want to accomplish and I think I can do so. So I am going to go out there and do what I have to do,” the 100m and 200m world record-holder said. (Sportsmax.com)
Kupper Chevrolet Dakota Classic Stock Car Tour Champion Elijah Zevenbergen. (Photo by Tom Macht, www.photofinishphotos.com)OCHEYEDAN, Iowa – Elijah Zevenbergen returned to familiar surroundings to win the Kupper Chevrolet Dakota Classic Stock Car Tour for the third time in four years.Then he made his first-ever visit to Boone Speedway and won on IMCA’s biggest stage.“The Dakota Tour is a nice little vacation. We have some friends out there,” said Zevenbergen, from Ocheyedan, Iowa. “Williston and Nodak are my favorite tracks on the tour and were two that got rained out, but nonetheless we won at Dickinson and Mandan, so it was a good tour.”His week at Boone was even better as Zevenbergen topped the Saturday night IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s main event.“It was kind of a standing joke in the pits, people asking me why I was there because I’d never raced at Super Nationals before,” he said. “It was a pretty crazy deal, no doubt about it, but I had a lot of good people helping me.”“Super Nationals was the biggest win of my career. It was pretty surreal. To win with all those good drivers there was a huge honor,” he continued.His 11 feature wins were a single-season career best. In addition to Boone, Zevenbergen made starts at 15 tracks, scoring late-season victories at Arlington Raceway’s Joe Voss Memorial and on opening night of the Iron Cup at Park Jefferson Speedway.“I’m not a points racer. I like to bounce around. It might be noon on Saturday before I decide where I’m going to race,” he said. “We had a phenomenal year. “Everything just fell into place.”Starts: 3Wins: 2Additional Top Fives: 0HIS CREW: Parents Loren and Sue Zevenbergen, girlfriend Kim Cuadros and friends.HIS SPONSORS: Z Machine, Mega Inc., Bow Tie Auto Repair and D & K Transportation, all of Ocheyedan; and Raveling Inc. of Melvin.
The Washington Wizards kicked off their first preseason game against the Guangzhou Long-Lions last week. Meeks’ provided efficient and quick offense, shooting 7-9 from the field, ending the game with 19 points in 16 minutes of play.https://youtu.be/77FNj_b7gIEIn the contest against the Cleveland Cavaliers Meeks’ dropped 13 points (3-7 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT) while adding four rebounds in 102-94 victory over the reigning Eastern Conference champs.Coach Scott Brooks appeared to be extremely confident in the depth Meeks’ could bring to the Wizards crowded backcourt. Floor spacing will be a important component in the Wizards offense and Jodie Meeks helps allow that by adding a offensive shot maker to the rotation.“He gives us a knockdown shooter off the bench, he shoots the ball over 40% and with our playmaking guards I’m sure he can get a lot of shots, that’s why we brought him in.” Coach Brooks said after the win over the Guangzhou Long-Lions.Please follow and like us:
