A Sangamon County lawsuit alleges that owners of a Gardner Township property where a California teen died should have known of the dangers posed by an all-terrain vehicle hooked up to a rope swing by a pond.
The lawsuit also names as defendants the 14-year-old victim’s aunt and uncle, who he was visiting in Springfield, saying they should have known that young people would be unsupervised at the site.
Scanlan Derrick suffered head and neck trauma in a fall at the site on Aug. 18, said Sangamon County Coroner Jim Allmon. Derrick was airlifted to HSHS St. John’s Hospital after the accident, and died there Aug. 20, Allmon said.
His parents, Matt and Susan Derrick, filed the lawsuit Aug. 31 against Michael and Tracey Morley, owners of the property in the 6200 block of Old Salem Lane where the accident occurred; and against Dean and Nicole Derrick of Springfield, aunt

Regular exercise is good for overall health, but it doesn’t mean you have to do it every day or overdo it. It’s important to have rest days between workouts to allow your muscles to recover from the possible damage sustained during exercise, and grow. Several studies have also highlighted the importance of rest days in maintaining good health and fitness.
Both rest and recovery should also be part of your training program. Rest is defined as a period of time without any training and it usually about 24 hours for most people. Recovery, on the other hand, can be compared to taking a short break during training between rounds, which lasts between several minutes to hours.

Food is about so much more than nutrition—it’s one of the most personal expressions of our cultures, values, and traditions. Our new series, Behind the Recipe, profiles a different healthy cook every month to explore the personal, untold stories of their favorite dishes. This month, health coach Haile Thomas shares how her father’s health inspired her entire family to eat differently—and changed her life in the process.
Growing up, eating food that was “healthy” wasn’t really a priority for my family—we just ate what tasted good. My parents are Jamaican, so my mom would make a lot of traditional Jamaican food including red meat, white rice, green beans, and fish. Those foods were really the cornerstones of my childhood meals.
When I was 9, my dad was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. That’s when, as a whole family, we really started to think more about what we were eating.
Who won the presidential debate is in the eye of the beholder as Trump and Biden argue, giving little of substance to voters and both claiming victory.
WASHINGTON — The night voters across the country were waiting for finally arrived: President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden went head to head in their first debate of the general election.
It was an opportunity for each to appeal to undecided voters and solidify their bases by explaining their policies and visions for the country, but the majority of the time on stage was spent trying to get their points across amid frequent interjections and back-and-forth exchanges.
They bickered over their views on who should appoint the next Supreme Court justice, their stances on health care and even brought each other’s families into the fray. Moderator Chris Wallace of Fox News struggled to rein in the candidates
Due in large part to the lack of social connectivity during the pandemic, nearly three times more Americans — a whopping 25% overall — are experiencing symptoms of depression. In general, limited in-person contact boosts stress levels, while loneliness increases the risk of high blood pressure, chronic inflammation, a weakened immune system and several other health problems. In a pandemic, these issues are compounded even more.
“We are people who need people,” says Adriane Kruer, a Los Angeles-based psychologist. “We’re all kind of in a heightened trauma state. It’s really key for us to notice that and take excellent care of ourselves.”
Many people used to accomplish that by hitting a spa to get a massage, which not only relaxes the body, but can also ease anxiety while providing receivers a sense they’re being cared for and connected with.
Kruer advocates for massage in these trying times, saying, “Anything that
AUSTIN – Nursing homes in almost half of all Texas counties, including Dallas and Tarrant, must start testing their staff twice a week for COVID-19 or face potential fines.
The sweeping new rules from the federal government are aimed at reducing spread in nursing homes, where the virus has cut a deadly path. Families and advocates hope the rules will open the door to more visitation, which has been restricted for months.
But nursing homes leaders warn a lack of testing supplies right now could undermine the government’s efforts and strain resources over the long-term.
“Regular testing is a good policy because it helps providers to identify the virus,” said Kevin Warren, president and CEO of the Texas Health Care Association, which represents senior care facilities in the state. “But given the limited supply availability, these providers are not going to be in compliance overnight.”
The rules, announced last week
He claims he was abandoned on a riverbank as a baby by his biological mother and adopted by an Indigenous family which named him Brahminy — meaning wild and free.
It’s the story Allan Brahminy’s program for troubled kids was based around, and for more than a decade he has been looking after children — many of whom are Indigenous — receiving hundreds of thousands of dollars from state governments.
But Mr Brahminy’s biological family, former military colleagues, ex-wife and former partner claim he is not who he says he is.
His program, which provides therapeutic care to at-risk children, is based on a remote property just outside Batchelor in the Northern Territory, about 122 kilometres from Darwin.
The ABC understands the only children currently at the site are from Tasmania.
Their families and the Tasmanian Aboriginal community have for years been raising concerns about the program.
But it has
State and county health officials, as well as the leadership of a Bremerton hospital, knew Aug. 13 that at least three employees and two patients there had COVID-19. An outbreak was declared the following day.
But the public wasn’t told for another week. And some hospital employees say they found out at the same time the public did.
The state Department of Health (DOH) says it’s up to local health departments to decide when to notify the public of an outbreak. A spokesperson for the Kitsap Public Health District said the outbreak was small, contained to one unit of the hospital, and cited federal laws governing the privacy of health information.
“We are very careful with the level of public information we release regarding cases at specific facilities, especially when a small number of cases is involved,” health district spokesperson Tad Sooter of the health district wrote in an email.
