Fayette County coroner’s office. The cause of death was not immediately known. An autopsy was scheduled for Thursday. Ifeacho was pronounced dead at 5:47 p.m. Wednesday at University of Kentucky Hospital.A vigil is scheduled for 6 p.m. Monday at the high school. That date was when the basketball team had planned to hold its annual recognition banquet. Fayette school officials held a morning news conference. Dunbar Coach Scott Chalk said Ifeacho had complained of light-headedness earlier Wednesday during a light workout at open gym. He went to the athletic trainer’s room and called his mom to pick him up. He collapsed in the presence of teammates and a trainer, who immediately began resuscitation efforts.“The athletic trainer immediately provided emergency care, including CPR and the use of the AED (automated external defibrillator), while 911 was called,” Fayette schools Superintendent Manny Caulk said in a news release. “When paramedics arrived, they took over his care and transported him to the hospital.”Ifeacho had a sports physical on record and was cleared to play for Dunbar’s 2016-17 season, Chalk said. He’d never experienced any similar problems before, Chalk said.“It’s just a sad situation,” he said.Dunbar Principal Betsy Rains said the day was a difficult one for Dunbar, “but it was inspiring to see our students and staff come together to s

Minnesota," Medley said.McRaith's sister, Margaret Mary Madden, said she felt a powerful blast of grateful warmth from the community in Kentucky when she traveled there for the funeral mass. The Owensboro diocese covers 32 counties in the western third of the state."I feel like I was sucked up into the eye of a tornado," she said. "I found there such love, peace and togetherness. I'm an introvert and I have never been so energized. I've got to hand it to them."There was humor as well, she said. "During one of the homilies it was stated that 'When we found out our new bishop was from New Ulm, Minn., people were all like, Where is that?' And you know what people from Minnesota were saying: 'Where is this Owensboro?'?"Recognized advocate on farming and rural issuesMcRaith was born in Hutchinson, Minn., to a family with three siblings. He attended grade school in a one-room schoolhouse and high school at St. John's Prep in Collegeville. He later studied at Loras College in Dubuque, Iowa, and Mount St. Bernard Seminary in Dubuque, and did postgraduate work at what was then Mankato State University.After he was ordained in 1960, he was associate pastor of St. Mary's Church in Sleepy Eye, Minn., and pastor of St. Michael's Church in Milroy, Minn., and St. Leo's Church in St. Leo, Minn. He returned to Sleepy Eye in 1968 as administrator at St. Mary's and superintendent of St. Mary's High School.McRaith jumped to the national stage in 1972 when he became director of the National Catholic Rural Life Conference, headquartered in Des Moines. He became known as an advocate on farming and rural issues, which Medley said was a factor in his becoming a bishop at a comparatively young age.From 1978 to 1982 McRaith was vicar general and chancellor for the Diocese of New Ulm. When Owensboro Bishop Henry Soenneker resigned in 1982, McRaith was named by Pope John Paul II to take his place.Responded to growing d

Wayne H. Davis: A legacy in flight - Lexington Herald Leader

Saturday, April 08, 2017

Lexington. But the colorful sparrow-sized birds can be found flitting along rural roadsides and in fields across Central Kentucky.Their presence in the state is due in large part to Wayne H. Davis, the retired University of Kentucky biology professor who died March 16.He was present at just the right time in the bluebird’s long up-and-down history.There probably weren’t many bluebirds in the Kentucky wilderness when Daniel Boone hiked in. But when people started putting up fences, and fence posts rotted just enough to provide nest holes, bluebird numbers exploded. They were quite common at the start of the last century.Then house sparrows and starlings from Europe started taking over their nests. Then cities sprang up, and in the countryside, old posts were replaced by concrete, steel or treated wood.By the early 1970s, bluebirds had virtually disappeared, and people like Wayne Davis stepped in to help.Davis began doing research on what kinds of houses attract bluebirds. He tried birdhouses made from plastic bottles, birdhouses with tiny skylights, birdhouses with openings of different sizes.He had the most su
