MIAMI/MEXICO City – Police in Miami on Wednesday arrested the former governor of the Mexican state of Chihuahua, Cesar Duarte, who is wanted on corruption charges in his homeland, U.S. and Mexican officials said. César Duarte fled Mexico in 2018 after being accused of embezzling millions to fund a lavish lifestyle. LATINUS The Mexican attorney general’s office said Duarte faced extradition back to Mexico. Its statement came shortly after U.S. President Donald Trump met with his Mexican counterpart, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, at the White House. (Reuters) Duarte, who governed the northern border state from 2010 to 2016, has been accused by Mexican authorities of misappropriating public funds.
Yesterday I explained the reason for the EIAC split in the football portion of the conference. To me, when you have a 9-game regular season, it is not that difficult to schedule the other 7 schools and have a single conference champion. Theoretically, someone could win a single game in their portion of the conference and still be crowned conference champion. The conference championship is based on your record against your division foes, not the games played against the other half of the conference. For example, the 3A schools could all beat one opponent in their section thus making each one 1 for 2 and all of them would be c0-champs. I know you say this is impossible, but you have to remember that some schools play all the conference schools and some will only play part of them. Therefore, you don’t have the normal “wins must equal losses” like you do if you have just a single conference format. This year the 3A schools (going into tonight’s schedule) will have better overall records than the 4A schools, and yet someone in 4A will be named conference champ for that division. To borrow a phrase from a local TV personality, “doesn’t this stink?”

BATESVILLE — Margaret Mary Health has been named one of the 2014 top “100 Great Community Hospitals” in the United States by Becker’s Hospital Review. This is the third year in a row Margaret Mary has received this distinguished award“We are proud of this award, but what makes us most proud is having the opportunity to be part of such an impressive community,” said Tim Putnam, hospital president and CEO. “What makes our hospital great are the qualified doctors and support staff who choose to work here, the local businesses and organizations that choose to support us and the patients who trust us with their care year after year.The hospitals featured on the list have fewer than 550 beds and minimal teaching programs. Many are located in rural areas and are their communities’ sole hospital. All have worked to provide the experience and quality of care their patients expect and deserve. Hospitals were selected based on rankings and awards which considered clinical, operational and financial performance“I am proud of our hospital for again being named a ‘Top 100 Great Community Hospital,’” said Jim Roberts, EdD, Batesville Schools Superintendent and MMH board member.“With that said, the recognition is not a surprise to me as ‘great’ seems to describe everything about us: GREAT schools, both public and private; GREAT businesses, both big and small; GREAT eating establishments, both old and new; GREAT churches; GREAT people; GREAT families; GREAT community. Margaret Mary is an extremely important part of our GREAT community and goes above and beyond to ensure we receive the best service possible.”
