Illinois commencement speaker is out of this world

Wednesday, 02 April 2014 07:11 Published in Local News
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) - Astronaut and University of Illinois graduate Michael Hopkins will deliver the commencement address at his alma mater's spring graduation next month.
Hopkins recently returned from a 166-day stay aboard the International Space Station. He says in a statement released by the university that he'll be every bit as nervous delivering his speech as he was for his first walk in space.
 
Hopkins graduated from Illinois in 1991 with a bachelor's degree in aerospace engineering. He was also a member of the school's football team.
The Richland, Mo., native was accepted into NASA's astronaut training program in 2011 after trying without success for almost 12 years.
 
The spring commencement ceremony will be May 17 in Memorial Stadium in Champaign.
   
 

Miller, Blues blank Flyers 1-0 in shootout

Tuesday, 01 April 2014 23:20 Published in Sports
 
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Ryan Miller stopped 31 shots and T.J. Oshie and Kevin Shattenkirk scored in a shootout in the St. Louis Blues' 1-0 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night.
 
St. Louis has 109 points, one fewer than Boston for the top spot in the NHL.
 
Miller, who earned his 29th career shutout, made a skate save against Vincent Lecavalier and a glove save on Claude Giroux in the shootout.
 
One of Miller's best saves came with 1:30 to go in overtime when he stretched out and denied Jakub Voracek's bid to slide the puck under his pads.
 
Emery earned his 16th career shutout and second this season.
 
Oshie, who scored on a backhand, is 9 for 12 in the shootout. Giroux is 5 for 10.
 
Both teams killed penalties in the final five minutes of regulation, with a high-sticking call to Giroux stretching into the first 36 seconds of overtime for Philadelphia. St. Louis penalty killers have allowed three goals on 36 chances the past 12 home games.
 
The Flyers played in St. Louis for the first time since the 2010-11 opener.
 
Miller foiled two breakaways in the opening minutes, one created when defensemen Alex Pietrangelo and Shattenkirk collided. He made an outstanding left pad save on Michael Raffl to thwart a 2-on-1 break early in the second period.
 
Two Blues hit the goalpost in the second period, Jaden Schwartz in the opening minute and Pietrangelo in the final minute.
 
Notes: Flyers D Kimmo Timonen did not make the trip after taking a puck to the chin. Alex Gustafsson played for the first time since Feb. 27. ... The Blues tricked a fan between the second and third periods who was blindfolded at center ice and then shot several yards wide of the net, telling him he'd won $15,000. The fan did a celebratory belly flop on the ice before being told he'd been duped. ... The Blues' last 0-0 regulation game was March 22, 2012, at Los Angeles, a 1-0 shootout loss. ... The Flyers have been shut out four times.
 
 SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - A preservationist group has released its list of the 10 most endangered historic places in Illinois.
 
Landmarks Illinois announced its list Tuesday morning. It includes Chicago's Uptown Theatre, a U.S. Marine hospital in Galena that was built in 1859 and a more than 125-year-old primary school in Otterville.
The group has released its annual list since 1995 hoping to call attention to the threatened sites.
 
Landmarks Illinois officials say that since it started the list designation, more than a third of the places have been saved.
The list also includes Hotel Belleville, a 1931 art deco building on the public square in the southern Illinois city. It also lists the Old Millstadt Water Tower.
This year there's a special 11th item, the Federal Historic Tax Credit Program.
