Port Clinton Police Department(PORT CLINTON, Ohio) — Police provided new background information on a Port Clinton, Ohio, 14-year-old who has been missing since the morning of Dec. 20.A surveillance image believed to be Harley Dilly crossing the street in front of his house is the last known sighting of the teenager, said Detective Ronald Timmons with the Port Clinton Police Department on Saturday night, during an appearance on “Live PD on A&E.”It is out of character for Harley to just disappear, Timmons confirmed. The teen has a very specific schedule eating certain foods, bathing several times a day and typically “stays around his home,” Timmons said.Police believe Harley is in danger.It was 18 degrees with snow on the ground when he left his home and he was last seen wearing a thin sweater, sweatpants and a thin “puffy” coat, police said.All of which “leads us to believe he wasn’t planning on being outside for an extended amount of time,” Timmons said. “He was going to meet with somebody, somebody we haven’t identified yet.”Several organizations have raised almost $10,000 in reward money for any information leading to the teen’s safe return.Dilly’s mother, Heather Dilly, spoke publicly for the first time on Friday since her son went missing.“There’s no words for any of this. I would never want anybody to go through this,” Heather Dilly told Cleveland ABC station WEWS. “I mean, somebody had to have seen something.”She said the investigation is taking so much longer than she anticipated and is praying her son comes home safely.“You see everything on TV, you watch all these crime shows and you think, ‘oh, that’s never going to happen.’ And they solve it in an hour. It doesn’t take an hour to find out everything,” she said. “I love you Harley, please come home. Please, I just … We need you, I don’t believe that you ran, but if you did just please, this isn’t you.”Timmons said that Harley’s cellphone was broken at the time he left his residence. The 14-year-old also has a “big social media presence” with accounts on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and Reddit. There has been no activity on those accounts since his disappearance.Harley is 4 feet 9 inches tall, weighs 100 pounds, has brown hair and green eyes and was wearing glasses when he disappeared.Officials are asking anyone with information about his whereabouts to call the Port Clinton Police Department 419-734-3121.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

The Cornell Big Red, the last unbeaten team in the Ivy League, fell at the hands of a stronger, more talented Harvard Crimson team on Saturday (Oct. 11) by a score of 38-17. The Crimson (3-1; 1-1) got out to a quick 14-0 lead in the first quarter and went into the half up 28-7. A demoralized Cornell team (3-1; 1-1) came out of the locker room trying to get back in the game, but, stifled and undermatched, Cornell just could not put enough points on the board.This past weekend, Harvard looked more like the Crimson team that was predicted to finish first in the Ivy League Preseason Poll than the team that had only outscored their opponents 74-61 before Saturday’s win.“We did what we said we had to do,” said Thomas Stevenson Family Head Coach for Harvard Football Tim Murphy about the Crimson’s game plan. “Number one, do a great job protecting the football and … make some big plays against the blitz. Two, some young guys are going to step up — we’ve got three wideouts down — and our defense [has to] just keep the ball in front of [them].”The Crimson’s first score of the game came on a screen pass to freshman wide receiver Adam Chrissis on third down with four yards to go. Chrissis caught the ball, made a quick diversionary move, and scampered down the field for the 67-yard touchdown. The reception was the first of his career.Trying to hold back a smile when talking about his first career catch, Chrissis said humbly, “It was really a lot easier than I thought it would be; I just kept behind my blockers and my line. The receivers downfield made it really easy. … It was awesome. It was really a team touchdown, I didn’t do anything special.”Chrissis’ next touch was on the following possession, which was a run to the left side for 21 yards. His third touch came with 1:03 left in the first half on another screen, which resulted in a 22-yard touchdown.For his efforts in his first game of the season, Chrissis was named Ivy Rookie of the Week. Senior Linebacker Glenn Dorris, who was also recognized this week, recorded a game-high 11 tackles and was selected as the Ivy Defensive Player of the Week.The Crimson play Lehigh University at noon Saturday (Oct. 18) at Harvard Stadium.
I think you can get consensus on scene very quickly, he said. He said the new method also will provide an avenue to sit down with the Fire Department and review cases and discuss our mutual needs and interests. Until the ESA board meets on Nov. 7 to consider the proposal, RSI will not be performed in the field unless a doctor is on the line, Ross said. The ESA board said it wanted AMR to do the procedure only when a doctor is supervising by phone, rather than under standing orders as had been the norm. AMR agreed to the change. The debate emerged after ESA board member Marilyn Gifford, Memorial Health System s emergency chief, didn t approve of how an AMR paramedic used RSI in July. A subsequent state investigation cleared the paramedic. At issue is a Sept. 5 demand by the agency, which oversees ambulance contractor American Medical Response, that AMR amend how it conducts rapid sequence intubation for 120 days, pending study. Called RSI, the procedure temporarily paralyzes a patient so a paramedic can insert a breathing tube. COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.– A panel of medical experts recommended Tuesday that paramedics reach consensus in the field before using a controversial breathing procedure. The new proposal calls for spending $220,000 next year, down from an earlier $438,000 plan.CONTACT THE WRITER: 636-0238 or [email protected] On Oct. 3, several physicians told the board that phoning a doctor would delay lifesaving treatment. Those concerns prompted the agency to seek a recommendation from the medical committee, comprising doctors and paramedics. We hope that by providing similar training to the Colorado Springs Fire Department medics and updating our paramedics, the medics on scene will have a better understanding of what we re doing, said David Ross, AMR s physician advisor and a member of the Medical Control Committee. Its proposal, which includes mandatory training for Colorado Springs Fire Department medics, will be submitted to the Emergency Services Agency by its advisory panel, the Medical Control Committee. Also Tuesday, the ESA board amended its 2008 budget after the Colorado Springs City Council rejected it as too high. Firefighter medics would undergo four to five hours of training but would not perform RSI themselves. Meeting Tuesday, the committee unanimously agreed that firefighter paramedics should be briefed in RSI criteria and that they and AMR medics should reach consensus on the need for it before RSI is performed. If consensus is reached, a doctor wouldn t be called. If they cannot agree, AMR medics would call an emergency room doctor before using RSI.

It does not matter how you look at it, how you hold it up and examine it, EMS is a dangerous and a risky job,” said Peter Dworsky, EMT-P, during his lecture Risk Management for EMS, delivered Thursday, Feb. 25 at EMS Today 2016 in Baltimore, Md. Dworsky stressed the need to include all departments within the EMS agency in the risk management process: billing, operations, communications, fleet, education and administration. He suggested examining incident reports and quality assurance audits, and recommended that EMS managers talk with their insurance carriers, focusing on incidents categorized as high frequency/high severity (typically motor vehicle collisions, worker’s comp cases, stretcher drops, patient injuries and law suits). Identify the Risk–What are the things that will harm us?Prioritize the Risk–How often do they happen?Quantify the Risk Potential–How bad will it be?Strategize–What can be done to prevent it from happening? If something is predictable, it is preventableRisk management is everyone’s responsibilityRisk management protects staffRisk management saves money It is impossible to completely eliminate risk in EMS, however there are methods that can be implemented to reduce the likelihood of the effects of an incident. The goal of any risk management program is to reduce the agency’s exposure and provide a safe environment for the employees, visitors and patients. Additional observations Dworsky made included:

Eight candidates running for seats in the Kansas House of Representatives were in widespread agreement Saturday morning on a number of the issues facing the state – with some notable exceptions.One of those was when Libertarian candidate John Taube in the 19th District said he agreed with Kansas gun laws and individuals should have the right to defend themselves at anytime. “Good people are not the ones who go around shooting people,” Taube said. He did, though, encourage gun owners to take classes.His opponent in the 19th District, incumbent Stephanie Clayton, said she had seen gun laws passed that make people feel unsafe. In an active shooter situation, she said, police cannot tell who the good guys are. Democrat Elizabeth Meitl did not attend the forum.Both Jerry Stogsdill and Dorothy Hughes, candidates for District 21, opposed campus carry and called for major changes in gun laws. Stogsdill said he was a former Naval weapons officer and a gun owner and called for limitations on the types of guns people can buy. Hughes said concealed carry without a permit is “outrageous.”While both incumbent Democrat Jarrod Ousley and his Republican opponent Rob Johnson said they opposed the concealed carry law, Johnson said he would not support rolling back campus carry. Rather he advocated for more local control for campuses to make decisions. Ousley said it was “absurd” for someone to be able to walk into a restaurant with a gun.Both incumbent Melissa Rooker and Democrat challenger Matt McCann running in the 25th District opposed the gun laws. Rooker had voted against the gun packages. “We live in a civilized society. Common sense should prevail,” she said.“I don’t want to live in the old west,” McCann said, calling for “Rambo guns” to be “taken off the shelf.”All of the candidates opposed an amendment to change how Kansas Supreme Court justices are named. Taube, though, qualified that he didn’t support a change “right now.” He said the courts can’t keep coming back on school funding.All of the candidates were critical of the current Kansas tax system and advocated a tax overhaul. Taube, though, said he favored a “fair tax” system based on consumption, but later called the sales tax on food “ridiculous.”Clayton, along with the other candidates, wanted to eliminate the food sales tax and she also called for removing sales tax on “dignity” products.None of the candidates supported giving tax dollars to private schools. However, Johnson said he would give an option for families to get a tax exemption for what they pay to private schools and Taube said parents “have to have options” that it cannot be just public or none.
