The Permian High School Band and Orchestra hit a weather snag on their way back to Odessa, but should now be home.The group of a little more than 150 people, including chaperones, took a charter flight to Chicago to perform “The Star Spangled Banner” during a White Sox game Saturday and do some sightseeing and other activities.When thunderstorms hit the region Sunday night and early Monday morning, the group wound up staying the night in the Abilene Regional Airport baggage claim area. The Miami Air Flight Crew and Greenlight Group Tours tried to get the group back to Midland, but they couldn’t.Director of Bands Jeff Whitaker said there were 149 people on the way home because some had extended their vacations, or taken other transportation options.About 9 a.m. Monday, busses from Ector County Independent School District were on hand to pick everyone up. Whitaker said he called Director of Transportation Roger Cleere about 2:30 a.m. Monday.Whitaker said Cleere has gotten them out of binds many times. He wanted to make sure the drivers got enough sleep before making the trip to Abilene, so he didn’t call them right away.“He’s a good guy,” Whitaker said of Cleere. “He didn’t even blink an eye. It was almost like he was excited he could help.”In a social media post, Orchestra Director Todd Berridge said the Abilene Regional Airport staff and the Abilene Police Department stayed with the group and even set up cots.Berridge wrote that the City of Abilene also provided Shipley Do-Nuts.And Whitaker said the restaurant upstairs opened and fed everyone at no charge.More Information WhatsApp By admin – June 4, 2018 Twitter WhatsApp Registration set for engineering camp Previous articleGeorgia man dead after Reeves County rolloverNext articleDAILY OIL PRICE: June 4 admin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Noel earns award Smoked Bacon Wrapped French Vidalia OnionFoolproof Roasted Pork TenderloinUpside Down Blueberry Pie CheesecakePowered By 10 Sec Mama’s Deviled Eggs NextStay last_img read more

314 days after becoming a mother, Serena Williams is headed to Wimbledon finals

first_imgJuly 12, 2018 /Sports News – National 314 days after becoming a mother, Serena Williams is headed to Wimbledon finals FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailABC News(LONDON) — Three hundred and fourteen days after becoming a mother, tennis champion Serena Williams earned her spot in the finals at Wimbledon.The 23-time Grand Slam champion beat out German player, No. 13 seed Julia Goerges, Thursday in a 6-2, 6-4 victory to advance to the women’s final.This will be Williams’ 10th final at the All England Club, according to Wimbledon, putting her in position to tie Margaret Court’s all-time record of 24 Grand Slam titles.In Saturday’s final, Williams, 36, will compete against another German player, No. 11 seed Angelique Kerber, herself a two-time Grand Slam champion. The two faced-off in the 2016 finals, where Williams was victorious.Williams was ranked 25th in this year’s tournament after giving birth to a baby daughter in September. The All England Club amended the rules and seeded her, instead of following the ranking list that doesn’t take into account players’ taking a break for maternity leave. She was ranked No. 1 when she took her maternity leave and was ranked 183rd in the world after returning to the tour in March.The tennis champion and her husband, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, welcomed a daughter named Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. Three months later, Williams and Ohanian, 35, wed in an intimate New Orleans ceremony.Ahead of the tournament in London, Williams told Good Morning America that her body had changed after the baby.“It wasn’t as tight as I was used to,” she said last month. “I’ve played tennis for over 30 years, so I’m so used to [being] incredibly fit. But I realized everyone is different.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved. Beau Lundcenter_img Written bylast_img read more
