The speedway typically draws more than 300,000 spectators for one of the biggest live sport events in the US; Penske said there would be only 2,500 people in attendance Sunday due to the coronavirus outbreak. Santino Ferrucui came fourth, with Josef Newgarden the highest-placed Chevrolet in fifth.
Sato’s Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing teammate, Graham Rahal, came in third. Team owners David Letterman and Graham’s father, Bobby Rahal, were at the track to congratulate both riders. The new track owner, Roger Penske, was hosting his first Indy 500 without spectators present, although a new lift that carried Sato up to an elevated victory circle did liven up the formalities.
Cuts in state funding for local municipalities have squeezed the sheriff’s budget, along with voters’ November rejection of a county sales-tax increase that would have generated about $20m a year for 10 years. The sheriff said Sunday he didn’t know what the solution was.
The selection process sparked controversy, however, after reports that Abe’s successor would be chosen by a narrow section of the party, with officials invoking an “urgency clause” to exclude rank-and-file members.
The store will take orders until the end of January and then sell dresses at discounts and liquidate all assets.
“Our customers have been great. We tried to call everyone who had an order with us before we closed,” Younker told the Northeast Ohio Media Group. “They weren’t surprised but sad for us, they understood.”
No sign of Ebola was ever found in the store. Its manager was temporarily put under home quarantine, and some employees and customers were among the 160-plus Ohio residents whose health was monitored by officials for several weeks after Vinson’s diagnosis because of their proximity to her.
Younker says she thought about reopening elsewhere under a new name but isn’t likely to do that.
Sato denied five-time IndyCar champion Dixon after race officials declined to throw a red flag following a late crash by Spencer Pigot. Fernando Alonso, bidding to complete a “triple crown” having won the Monaco Grand Prix and Le Mans 24 hour race, could only finish in 21st place.
Operators of a north-east Ohio bridal shop linked to an Ebola survivor nuevo teclado tfue say the store is closing because it lost significant business and has been stigmatized.
Dallas nurse Amber Vinson was diagnosed with Ebola days after visiting Coming Attractions Bridal & Formal store in Akron in October. The store temporarily closed and cleaned before reopening in November, but business hasn’t bounced back.
“We had a big opening and we had hoped that the publicity may even have been a good thing,” owner Anna Younker told the Northeast Ohio Media Group. “But now we are the Ebola shop. Customers are tired of hearing ‘Oh, you bought it at the Ebola shop.'”
Owner Anna Younker said her shop has become known as the Ebola store. She told the Akron Beacon Journal the temporary closure and canceled orders cost the store at least $100,000. That wasn’t covered by her insurance because it excludes viral illnesses.
Sato, who also won here in 2017, said he knew Dixon would have been tough to beat under green. “I know Scott was coming right through, out of turn four, he was screaming”, Sato said. “I had to hold him off.”
The road from San Sebastián to A Coruña is one of big cities, pretty fishing towns, high cliffs and raging sea. It skirts the rugged Basque coast, runs through lush Cantabria and Asturias, and ends up in Galicia, on the wildly beautiful Costa de la Muerte.
Unlike Nascar, which typically runs two-lap shootouts to the finish when a caution interrupts the ending, IndyCar rarely follows the same procedure. Sato was instead able to coast around the speedway, with Dixon’s plan to run down his rival as he worked through lapped traffic spoiled by the crash with four laps to go.
The survivor, Scott Davis, now 49, testified that he heard the click of a gun as he walked in front of Beasley at the reputed job site. Davis, who was shot in an arm, knocked the weapon aside, fled into the woods and called the police.
Beasley, who returned to Ohio from Texas in 2004 after serving several years in prison on a burglary conviction, claimed at trial that Davis had in fact pulled a gun on him in retaliation for Beasley serving as a police informant in a motorcycle gang investigation.
In arguing the sentence before the jury, both sides highlighted Rafferty’s case: the defense said his life sentence should factor into the jury’s deliberations, but prosecutors said it should not because Rafferty’s age ruled out the death penalty entirely.
The jail received about 50 new inmates over the last two days, complicating Sunday’s release, the sheriff said. Most of those released were being held on low-level, nonviolent felony charges, and none had been charged with murder or rape. The sheriff said authorities tried to contact the victims in every case.
Local media reported on Tuesday that Suga was poised to confirm rumours that he intended to join the race to succeed Abe as president of the ruling Liberal Democratic party (LDP) – a position that would automatically make him prime minister.
