Perdue says Johnson’s experience with rural utilities, including expanding access to high-speed Internet, “will serve us well as we strive to increase prosperity across rural America.” Johnson serves as general manager and CEO of Co-Mo Electric Cooperative and President for Co-Mo Connect in Tipton, Missouri. The cooperative is the first to deploy a fiber-to-the-home network to all its members without federal or state funding, providing gigabit internet, video and voice services to nearly 16,000 subscribers.Johnson has also worked for the Twin Valleys Public Power District in Nebraska, as well as the Nebraska Public Power District. In the same statement, Perdue urged the Senate to act quickly in confirming other pending nominations to USDA, including the nomination of Iowa’s Bill Northey to a top USDA post.Source: NAFB News Service Perdue Applauds Trump’s USDA Rural Utility Services Administrator Selection SHARElast_img read more


Larry Hicks to be shown on A&E

first_img Wasserman and a television crew were in Troy this week to film a segment of “Urban Legends” that will feature the Roush rescue with the story as told by Hicks.“We will recreate what happened that day and the interview with Larry Hicks will be a part of the narration,” Wasserman said. “It’s a real story of faith.”Wasserman’s interview with Hicks took him back, not just to the plane crash and rescue but also to his years with the U.S. Marines.“How was it that you had the training and know-how to rescue a pilot from a plane submerged in eight feet of water?” she asked. Print Article Skip Hicks explained that, as a Marine, he was in full time telecommunications, but he also took advantage of an opportunity for Corps search and rescue training.“Although I never had to use that training in the military, it prepared me for what happened 18 years later,” Hicks said.“I had been trained to search for a pilot whose plane had gone down in water. Once I located the pilot, I knew where the seatbelt was and how to release it.”Hicks said, when he released the seatbelt, the pilot floated into his arms.“When we got to the surface, the pilot wasn’t breathing. I held on to the wing with one hand and gave him modified CPR with the other hand. On the fifth breath, he started breathing.”Hicks said it was the Marine training that prepared him for the rescue situation.“But I’m no hero,” he said.“So many things just fell into place. God had His hand in it all. God saved Jack. I was just God’s instrument.”Following the rescue, Hicks and Roush have become more than friends. They are family.“My concern right now is for Jack,” Hicks said.“The plane he was flying just snapped in two during the landing. But he walked out of the plane. You know, it’s strange but this crash was at 6:15 p.m. – and that’s the same time he went into the lake behind my house. I know because I was watching the news when I saw the plane hit the steel cable and go in the water. I pray that Jack comes back from this crash just as he did before. He’s a good friend and a great guy.”The Roush/Hicks story will air on A&E in 2011 and will possibly also be shown on the History Channel and the Discovery Channel. For Larry Hicks, it’s hard to believe that there are others who still remember.But, the recent recognition has a bitter sweetness to it.As Hicks remembered Thursday under the bright lights of a television camera, the man that he rescued from a plane crash in a Troy lake in 2002 was listed in serious condition in a Wisconsin hospital, the victim of yet another plane crash.

But a researcher and interviewer with Cineflix in Toronto just happened to read the story of the Roush rescue in a faith magazine. The story captured Amelia Wasserman’s interest and she recognized it as a potential story for A&E’s “Urban Legends.”“When I was contacted about doing a television interview and they said it was for ‘Urban Legends,’ I said, ‘You’ve got to be kidding,’” Hicks said, laughing. “Legend?

19-year-old arrested in killing of Philadelphia police chief inspector’s son: Officials

first_img(Philadelphia Police Department) Tyquan Atkinson is seen here in an undated mug shot. (PHILADELPHIA) — A teenager was arrested Wednesday in the killing of the 20-year-old son of the Philadelphia police’s chief internal affairs inspector, according to authorities.Tyquan Atkinson, 19, faces charges including murder and conspiracy for the Saturday night shooting of Nicholas Flacco.Atkinson allegedly led police on a foot chase before authorities found him hiding on the roof of a shopping center, reported ABC Philadelphia station WPVI.Flacco, 20, was in Philadelphia’s FDR State Park, tailgating with friends for the Phillies game, when he was fatally shot in the chest, according to the Philadelphia Police Department.Flacco was allegedly trying to break up a fight between women when one woman threatened to “call her man,” police said. A man showed up at the park a short time later with a gun, police said.Flacco’s friends allegedly dared the man to shoot them because they did not think the gun was real, police said. The gunman then shot Flacco, authorities said.“There’s no suggestion that he was involved in the initial argument whatsoever,” Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross said earlier this week.Flacco, who planned on joining the U.S. Marine Corps in the fall, was home in Philadelphia for the weekend to celebrate his birthday, reported WPVI. His funeral is scheduled for Thursday, said WPVI.The victim’s father, Chris Flacco, is the chief inspector of internal affairs at the Philadelphia Police Department.“It does hit very close to home,” Ross told WPVI. “I’ve known Chief Flacco for probably 25 years at least. So our hearts are broken. We’re keeping him and his family in our thoughts and our prayers.”Nicholas Flacco was in his fourth semester at Penn State University, said university spokeswoman Lisa Powers.“Random acts of violence such as this are unfathomable and very troubling,” she told ABC News via email on Monday. “This news is tragic and we offer our deepest condolences to Nicholas’ family and friends during this difficult time.”Atkinson’s bail was denied early Thursday. His preliminary hearing is set for April 24.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
