Hall of Fame DT Art Donovan dead at 89

Monday, 05 August 2013 03:37 Published in Sports

   BALTIMORE (AP) - Art Donovan, the Hall of Fame defensive lineman who spent much of his 12-year career with the Baltimore Colts, has died. He was 89.

   Donovan died Sunday at Stella Maris Hospice in Baltimore, according to Kevin Byrne, senior vice president of the Baltimore Ravens.

   Back in the day when NFL players made little money, the 6-foot-3, 265-pound Donovan played for the love of the game and the thrill of winning. He helped the Colts win championships in 1958 and 1959.

   Donovan broke into professional football in 1950 with the Colts, who folded after his rookie season. He played with the New York Yanks in 1951 and the Dallas Texans in 1952 before the Dallas franchise moved to Baltimore and became the second version of the Colts. He spent the remainder of his career with Baltimore before retiring after the 1961 season.

 

   As the start of the new school year fast approaches, more than 300 students who want to transfer out of the troubled Riverview Gardens and Normandy school districts still don't know where they'll attend classes.  That's because of the limited availability of open seats in some districts they've applied to attend.  

   Many students didn't get into one of their first three choices of districts, or didn't list more than one choice.  So officials with the Cooperating School Districts have extended the application deadline for the still unassigned transfer students.  

   Families can submit a new list of choices.  Those who don't re-apply on the Cooperating School Districts website by noon Monday will not be able to transfer out of the unaccredited districts.

   All of the Normandy students transferring to Francis Howell Districts did get their requests filled.  About 2,400 Riverview Garden students have also received transfer assignments. 

IL Gov signs bill mandating insurance for athletes

Monday, 05 August 2013 02:51 Published in Local News

   CHICAGO (AP) - A new law says Illinois schools must offer catastrophic insurance coverage for student athletes.

   Gov. Pat Quinn signed the law Sunday at Eisenhower High School in the Chicago suburb of Blue Island.

   Rasul "Rocky" Clark played football for Eisenhower until he was paralyzed from the neck down when he was tackled during a 2000 game.

   His care was provided through a $5 million insurance policy held by the school district. When that policy hit its limit, he relied on Medicaid and his mother. Clark's story fueled legislation sponsored by state Sen. Napoleon Harris, a Democrat from Harvey and former NFL player.

   Under the legislation effective next year, a school's minimum policy will cover $3 million in aggregate benefits or five years of coverage.
