Milligan leads way for Owls

Milligan leads way for Owls

first_img“Games like these are every day for her,” Boxley said of Milligan (4-1), who has started all but one of Citrus’ first six games and faced just one more batter than the minimum 28. “Some teams are better than others at catching up to her stuff, but she’s always throwing like that.” After leaving one runner on base in the first inning and three in the second, the Owls (4-2) broke through in the third. Citrus, trailing 1-0 after allowing a run in the top of the inning, put a runner on third with one out. Milligan hit a shot toward left field and Ventura shortstop Esperanza Reyes cut the ball off, but she couldn’t throw out Milligan as the tying run scored. Sophomore outfielder Caitlin Tolan reached on a fielder’s choice, which put a runner on first with two out when freshman first baseman Nicole Frusher tripled to right. Tolan scored to give the Owls the 2-1 lead they didn’t give back. Milligan didn’t allow another runner past second and struck out two in the seventh. Milligan struck out the first seven batters she faced and 14 overall in a complete-game five-hitter as the Owls, ranked No. 3 in Southern California, beat the visiting Pirates, 2-1. She also went 3 for 3 and tied the game in the bottom of the third inning with an RBI infield hit. GLENDORA – Citrus College softball coach Justine Boxley knows how important sophomore pitcher Corinne Milligan is to the team’s success. She showed it once again on Tuesday against Ventura. center_img sean.moses@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811 Ext. 2213 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast, September 17, 2018

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast, September 17, 2018

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest  The remains of Hurricane Florence are working northward today, and will bring rain to about 60% of Ohio. We expect rain totals to run anywhere from a few hundredths to perhaps 1.25″ or more, depending on where thunderstorms and longer term rain streaks develop. Right now, we think the best chances for thunderstorms will be far south near the Ohio River, ,and then in east central OH into western PA. The upper end of the rain range will be over southern OH and the eastern third. There is a good chance we see nothing but clouds farther west in west central OH, and even a mix of clouds and sun in NW Ohio…so today’s weather spread may be all over the place, thanks to the remains of Florence. Temperatures do remain warmer than normal today, even with the rain. South flow will be key to keeping temps warm. The map at right shows potential for today’s rain.Drier weather is back for tomorrow, and we should stay dry for Wednesday and Thursday as well. The front we had been watching last week for midweek on Wednesday late afternoon has completely fallen apart down this way, and moisture looks to stay farther north, across WI, northern IL and into MI. But, even though we are taking moisture out at midweek, we are going to have to pay for it later. That payment comes due starting early Friday.Three waves of moisture will move over the state from Friday through Sunday, one for each day period. The first wave his for Friday, and goes into the evening, then another batch of moisture comes Saturday and a final batch Sunday. Combined, all three systems bring potential for half to 1.5” rains over about 90% of the state. We think a few areas see all three waves, but most areas see at least two of the three hitting over the 3-day period. This will bring a slowdown to harvest field work.Dry weather is back for next Monday through Wednesday. Temps will be a bit cooler behind the weekend rains but will stay mostly near normal for the period. Then, we kick off the extended 11-16 day window with a strong front for next Thursday and Friday, the 27th and 28th. This front brings half to 1.5” inch rain potential to a full 100% of the state. This front also ushers in much cooler Canadian high pressure out of the west. We expect temps to move to below normal levels to finish out the extended period, while dry weather finishes out the month and kicks off October. For the 29th and 30th, we think it wise to be on the look out for temps bottoming out near 40 degrees, and we won’t rule out a few upper 30s. A map of potential morning lows for the 30th is at right. However, keep in mind that there is plenty of time for that to change, though. Just putting it out there this morning.last_img read more

A Foot-Controlled Faucet For Convenience and Savings

A Foot-Controlled Faucet For Convenience and Savings

first_imgFor the past eight years we’ve been able to turn our kitchen faucet on and off using a knee- and foot-controlled valve from the Canadian company Tapmaster. This may seem like a convenience-only product designed for lazy people. I can’t argue with all of that — and admit that I probably wouldn’t have installed one if I hadn’t received it for testing from the manufacturer after we had reviewed a competing product in Environmental Building News. But I gotta say, I love it, and I’m convinced that it does result in significant water and energy savings.Foot and knee controls for faucets have been used for decades in hospitals, where doctors and nurses don’t want to risk re-contaminating their hands by touching the faucet handle after washing. Now these controls are making their way into high-end homes as a convenience feature (as are sensor-activated controls), and our company has recommended this type of product since our first review of a foot-controlled faucet in 1999 (log-in required to read full article).With foot- and knee-controls for faucets, you set the desired temperature and flow rate using the standard hot and cold levers. Then you turn the tap on and off by pushing an under-sink cabinet door with your knee, by stepping on a foot valve, or by depressing a “kick-plate” beneath the cabinet. Our particular model allows us to use either a knee against the cabinet door or the tip of a foot pushing against a kick-plate. To adjust the rate of flow or the temperature, one simply adjusts the levers like normal — but you turn the flow off by releasing pressure on the cabinet door or foot pad.We usually have only the cold water lever turned on (to quickly fill a water glass or rinse a spoon off during the day). When we’re going to wash dishes, we simply turn off the cold lever and turn on the hot (because we keep our water heater set to about 120°F, we usually don’t have to mix cold with hot for washing dishes).It’s certainly a convenience to turn the water on and off without using your hands. But it also saves water. This morning, when I was filling the water bowl for our golden retriever, for example, I was able to hold the bowl with both hands and not waste water by turning on the faucet and then lifting the bowl under the tap. When washing pots and pans, with the hot-water tap turned on, I control the flow very simply using my knee, while many people leave the water running.While you save water whether it’s hot or cold water that’s being controlled, there’s a whole lot more money to be saved by reducing use of hot water, because it’s water that doesn’t have to be heated.The biggest problem we have is when guests are over and can’t figure out how to turn on the water. For this reason, we often lock the control in the “on” position (a simple process using the kick-plate) so that the flow is controlled with the faucet levers — like normal. Our younger daughter used to enjoy tricking her friends, though, by snapping her fingers as she surreptitiously pushed in the cabinet door or foot pad. Her friends would try to turn on the tap by snapping their fingers….Tapmaster’s foot- and knee-control systems start at about $300 (not including installation), with some systems costing over $500. Would I recommend this as starting-point investment in water and energy savings? Certainly not. But, I have to say that after using one of these for eight years (with absolutely no problem), if I were building a new house today I would figure out a way to work this feature into the budget.In addition to this Energy Solutions blog, Alex contributes to the weekly blog BuildingGreen’s Product of the Week, which profiles an interesting new green building product each week.
