What channel is Bears vs. Vikings on today? Time, TV schedule for Week 4 game

first_imgBears vs. Vikings is the kind of matchup that draws attention beyond Chicago and Minnesota, so many around the country will be scanning their TV channels Sunday afternoon to find this Week 4 game. Thanks to the schedule allowing Bears vs. Vikings to be CBS’ game of the week, the majority of the country indeed will be treated to this rivalry.The roots of this NFC North matchup run deep, with the Vikings holding the all-time series lead at 60-53-2. But even in this rivalry, rarely does a meeting so early in the season carry so much weight. Week 4 NFL PICKS:Against the spread | Straight-up picksThe reason, as explained by SN contributor and former Vikings general manager Jeff Diamond this week: Against Chicago, Minnesota will find out whether the offensive overhaul around Dalvin Cook it went through in the offseason was worth the trouble. The Bears forced the Vikings into changes last season when they dominated both meetings and stole the division title. The question now: Can Minnesota run the ball on Chicago?The Bears still boast one of the NFL’s best rush defenses, but Cook is on fire this season in his team’s revamped rushing attack. He has recorded at least 100 rushing yards and a touchdown in each of his first three games, and his 375 rushing yards lead the league. With at least 100 rushing yards and a rushing touchdown Sunday, Cook would become the fifth player in NFL history with at least 100 rushing yards and one rushing touchdown in each of his team’s first four games to begin a season.​Diamond also considers this game a litmus test for Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins, who has thrown for more than 200 yards in just one game thus far after doing it in 14 of 16 games last season. He’ll get a big challenge from a Bears defense led by Khalil Mack, who is tied for first in forced fumbles (18) and tied for second in games with 2-plus sacks (13) in the NFL since his rookie season in 2014.Below is all the info you need to watch Bears vs. Vikings on Sunday, including the TV channels and kickoff time.What channel is Bears vs. Vikings on today?TV channel (national): CBSTV channel (Chicago): WBBMTV channel (Minneapolis): WCCOLive stream: fuboTV (regional)Bears vs. Vikings, CBS’ game of the week, will share the network’s late Sunday afternoon spotlight with Jaguars vs. Broncos.

NFL trade rumors: Vikings not trading Stefon Diggs; receiver ‘won’t be speaking’ about situation

first_imgThe 25-year-old wide receiver signed a five-year, $72 million extension before the 2018 season. 😶— DIGGS (@stefondiggs) September 30, 2019Yet while rumors are swirling that Diggs might be headed elsewhere, perhaps New England, ESPN reported Wednesday that a team that would “definitely be interested” in the wide receiver had been told he would not be traded.NFL Media further noted Diggs’ “frustration with the organization has been palpable.” Related News Diggs told reporters Thursday there is “truth to all rumors” but he “won’t be speaking” about the situation.Stefon Diggs on reports that he wants to be traded: “There’s truth to all rumors. I won’t be speaking on that.” pic.twitter.com/8q6OZtUMyz— Chad Graff (@ChadGraff) October 3, 2019Diggs at practice pic.twitter.com/Gks8AgsUPC— Chris Tomasson (@christomasson) October 3, 2019It would be understandable if Diggs were upset by his plight in Minnesota. Coming off career highs in catches, yards and TDs last season (102/1,021/9), expectations were great entering this season, but the Vikings’ passing game has been anemic, so bad that fellow Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen publicly called out quarterback Kirk Cousins, and Cousins apologized for his play.Diggs put up uncharacteristically poor numbers in the first three games (six catches and 101 yards on only 12 targets), before breaking through Sunday in the loss to the Bears, catching all seven targets for 108 yards. But even after the game, Diggs left the locker room in full pads, without talking to the media. He further fanned the trade rumor flames the next couple of days by following a number of Patriots on social media. A missed practice and some curious social media activity have convinced many people that Stefon Diggs’ days with the Vikings are numbered.The wide receiver missed the team’s practice Wednesday, mysteriously listed as “Not Injury Related.” That comes two days after Diggs tweeted a mysterious, faceless emoji.

(Updated) Scott City ends Conway Springs season with 21-7 loss

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — The defending Class 3A State Champion Scott City Beavers eliminated the host Conway Springs Cardinals 21-7  in the third round of the playoffs. Conway Springs season ends at 11-1.The key moment to this game came with less than a minute to play in the first half, after Conway Springs had tied the game on a 1-yard plunge by junior Luke Fisher on fourth down. Scott City would return the ball to the 27. Then Trey O’Neal, the younger son of Glenn O’Neal a former head basketball coach in Wellington, would hit hit a long pass to  Warren Kropp to put the Beavers in enemy territory. Then Scott City scored on a 27-yard touchdown strike from O’Neil to Sloan Baker with 31 seconds to play to take a 14-7 lead into the locker room.The Beavers would score on a 17-yard touchdown pass from O’Neil to Chris Pounds in the fourth quarter.“We got beat up front,” said Matt Biehler, Conway Springs head football coach. “We were in second and third and long situations all night. That makes it difficult to recover for any team. Let alone ours.”Conway Springs depends on the run, no doubt. It is what the Cardinals do. But Scott City took that away from them and Conway Springs had to resort to passing. The Cardinals were 1-of-6 for the night from the air.Rushing-wise, Conway Springs was held to a season low 196 yards. Travis Wood had 82 and Fisher 72. Alec Stanley had 9.Scott City would accumulate 143 yards passing and 184 rushing for 327 yards of total offense. O’Neil was 8 of 13 for 143 yards. Kropp had 130 yards rushing and 81 yards receiving for 211 total yards.After Scott City took a 7-0 lead on its second offensive series of the first half, neither team would score for more than a quarter. But with about four minutes in the second quarter, Conway Springs fielded the ball at midfield and took the ball downfield. Fisher would score from the 1 on a fourth down to tie the game at the 1:16 mark to knot the game at 7-all.Scott City’s late drive in the first half was a huge blow to the Cardinals.Conway Springs and Scott City went scoreless in the third quarter. Conway Springs, though, had its opportunities. It recovered a fumble on a Scott City pass reception at the Scott City 34.But the Cardinal offense could not move the ball including a great Dakota Finstad pass to a receiver in the end zone between Scott City defenders that was just dropped at the end.  Scott City drove the ball into Conway Springs territory but punted with 7:36 to play. Conway Springs started at its 15 but was intercepted. Scott City started again at the Conway Springs 26.The Beavers moved to the Cardinal 22 with 6:28 to play.Scott City then scored on an O’Neal to Pounds on a  17 yard touchdown reception in the corner with 5:00 to play. Conway Springs Ben Pauly would return the ensuing kickoff  to Scott City’s 42. But Conway Springs was unable to capitalize on good field position and Scott City took over on downs with 2:39 to play.

Council approves “resolution of support” for proposed apartment complexes

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — The Wellington City Council voted 4-2 a resolution of support to the development of a 48-unit multi-family complex at Settler’s Creek – a housing addition, west of Woodlawn Ave. and south of U.S. 160 in east Wellington (see proposed plans below). The council earlier approved 6-0 a resolution of support for the proposed 42-unit apartment complex at the Wellington Junior High building.Now the developers of both proposed complexes will submit an application to the Kansas Housing Tax Credit program hoping to procure tax credits which “provides the private market with an incentive to invest in affordable rental housing.”Mind you, what the Wellington Council passed Tuesday night was nothing more than a “letter of support” that is part of an overall package sent to the Kansas housing organization. If the housing incentives are approved, then the developer(s) can use those credits as cost reductions that in theory will ultimately lower rental prices.If the housing credits are turned down, as was the case last year with Gary Hassenflu of Garrison Properties with the Wellington Junior High, then the developer will need to decide to build without housing incentives, give up, or try again in the future. In November, Hassenflu decided to try again for the tax credits to refurbishing the Wellington Junior High after being turned down in May.Both developers were on hand Tuesday to procure the council’s support which obviously is essential in the application process.Jim Moore of Affordable Housing Group/Zimmerman Properties of Springfield, Mo. was there to promote the building of apartments on the east end of Settler’s Creek. Hassenflu was present to promote the junior high.Moore stated the two developers were in competition to get these tax credits.“About one in five who apply actually get these tax credits,” Moore said. “They are very, very difficult to obtain. But what Wellington has going for it is we are two very reputable developers with a long history of good service.”Moore said his company is proposing one, two and three bedroom apartments ranging from $450 to $750 and will be a $5 million investment. This was comparable to what Hassenflu is offering at the Wellington Junior High.This is where the proposed Settler’s Creek apartment complex would sit if built.A third group of developers, Jason Van Sickle of Wichita, is also wanting to build apartments in Wellington. Van Sickle is wanting to develop a 192-unit apartment complex east of Wal-Mart. Unlike the two developers on Tuesday night, Van Sickle is not applying for housing credits. The council recently annexed and rezoned property for that proposed complex.Wellington City Council member B.J. Tracy asked Moore whether he was aware that three different developers were looking to develop multi-family rentals in Wellington.Moore said the Van Sickle apartments will be a different clientele – a higher income group. He said his properties are for families at or below 60 percent of the area income median.Tracy then asked whether that will eventually lead to subsidized or low-income rentals, especially if the apartments do not rent. Moore said this will not happen and his company has never done so in the past at other facilities built by the Affordable Housing Group/Zimmerman Properties.Moore said the company determined Wellington to be a good fit based on an in-house housing study done. He said the study determined there was a significant number of people making this income within certain milage of the proposed location.Realistically, Moore said the Kansas Housing Department will reward one of the two apartment properties – either the Wellington Junior High or at Settler’s Creek – or neither. He anticipated Wellington could get two of the three proposed complexes but won’t get all three based on the population density of the town. Close Forgot password?

The availability of zero-entrance duplexes is just what is needed.

We’ve looked in the Wichita market, but have always lived here. It sounds like some council men are making up our minds for us. They are basically saying I’m a bad neighbor. LOL I’ve paid a boat load of taxes through the years to help support this community. I don’t understand why some people hate growth. Investors are not going to spend millions to see their project fail. What about this project didn’t fly? Where it is being built will hide Keohn Motors building from the rest of the development. The opinion of these council men comes across as apartment dwellers are low life’s. Report Reply 6 replies · active 343 weeks ago +6 Vote up Vote down JustMe · 343 weeks ago Apartment complexes don’t seem to do well in small communities. Sure, they fill up. But the upkeep and occupants tend to go down hill over time. I’m not saying everyone that lives in an apartment complex is scum. I did my time in Woodlawn. Sure, Mr. Brand, when you build something new, it’s kind of nice. But over time, the shiny wears off, and the termites move in. Drive around town and take a look at the ones we have now. Look at the ones near Plum and Mission St. (by braums), Woodlawn aparments, there are 3 near the intersection of 4th and F., Shady Lane, Michigan. Would YOU build a house directly adjacent to one of the complexes we have now?

There was no prior communication with the residents and the developers, it was sprung on them and Gus you should be ashamed of yourself…This city is not going to grow without jobs to support it….start there..

The communication from the developer, city, and citizens were not there. I feel for the current residents of Settler’s Creek. The developer used a technique of not accepting a “table” of the vote and the Council got suckered into it. So sad.

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments This is the proposed site looking east toward Woodlawn Ave.The neighbors While the Hassenflu Wellington Junior High apartment proposal received no objections and easily passed unanimously by the council, this wasn’t the case for the Settlers Creek addition that generated responses from five property owners in the area, and one prospective buyer.Settler’s Creek has had a rather troubled history. The first of three housing developments in Wellington, the develop took advantage of the city’s housing incentive program only to default. The city of Wellington is now the owner of the housing complex. While there have been five homes built there, there is plenty of open real estate with an estimated 20 to 25 empty lots. The proposed apartments will actually sit on a cul-de-sac where no lot has been sold.Allen Keller, a resident of the addition, was the first to speak and said building at Settler’s Creek was one of the worst investments ever made. He said he was the first to build and paid full value for the home at $137,500 with the promise of a scenic view and a manicured creek. But those promises weren’t fulfilled. That coupled with the housing market collapse in the late 2000s makes him think he may never get a good return on the investment.He worried a proposed apartment complex in the neighborhood could further reduce his property values.It was a sentiment echoed by the property owners at the meeting.Moore responded later that devaluing property values simply isn’t true. There are no studies that reveal that property values decrease based on the construction of multi-family dwellings nearby.Tony Farley, another neighbor, was upset about the lack of communication with the developer and the city. He also questioned the safety of having an apartment so close to single-family dwelling with small children.Richard Acton of San Diego said he is selling a house at 834 Homestead Drive, which was owned by his father, who is deceased. He said the house is about to be purchased but the prospective owners are wanting to pull out because of the proposed apartment complex. Mike and Brenda Leverich, the prospective owners, were there. They wished to purchase the house and build a garage and in-ground swimming pool on the east and west side. They did express that if an apartment complex did come in they would pull out of the prospective purchase.Wellington council member John Brand, who lives north on Huron Court by Hargis Creek, said he too was upset because they were building duplexes in his neighborhood. But he found that after they were built, the neighborhood took off and there was significant growth.Council member Jim Valentine said this sounded like a train wreck and there needs to be more time to study the proposal. He tabled the motion, but it died from a lack of second. Moore said tabling is not an option because deadline is approaching for him to submit the application.Tracy said he was torn between the mistakes made in the past and what is considered potential growth for Wellington. He said he has been accused of being anti-growth and anti-progress. But he said the council made mistakes in the early 2000s with this housing development that has cost the city significantly by providing housing incentives. The developer received the incentives, built the addition, but was unable to sell enough lots and eventually defaulted. The city bought the property back and now is sitting with empty lots. Tracy does not want to make the same mistake again.Mayor Roger Stallbaumer put an end to discussion after going longer than an hour. Voting for the resolution of support was: Brand, Kelly Green, Vince Wetta and Jan Korte. Voting against the resolution was Tracy and Valentine.last_img read more

Wellington Area Chamber of Commerce has made its move to Memorial Auditorium

first_imgby Amber Schmitz, Sumner Newscow —  The Wellington Area Chamber of Commerce is officially in its new home at Wellington’s Memorial Auditorium at 208 North Washington. The Chamber made its move early last week. The decision was made in January to move from its old location at 207 S. Washington to replace the Wellington Recreation Commission Fitness Center that was moving south to the newly remodeled WRC Center. “The Chamber knew that the Recreation Center was going to move out, as they were expanding and relocating, and the city wanted to make sure there was still a presence in the auditorium,” said Annarose White, Wellington Chamber of Commerce Executive Director.The Chamber is working with the Recreation Center, as they have turned responsibilities of scheduling open hours to the Chamber. Those wishing to walk in the gym will still be allowed to sign in through the Chamber office during normal business hours.“Hours are mainly 9 a.m.-4 p.m., but we are working beyond that, and we are always available by appointment,” White said.The weekend before last, Gaston’s Floor Covering began installing new carpet in the former Wellington Recreation Fitness Center on the top floor of the Memorial Auditorium as part of the remodeling process for the new Chamber of Commerce/Convention and Visitors Bureau offices.The Chamber is also working with Sunflower T’s to help them put up directional signage. A logo will be placed in the center of the Memorial Auditorium sign to help visitors locate them. There will also be a panel placed on the north end that says “Events Center.” The south side will say “Convention and Visitors Bureau.”Currently, White said, there are four weddings, two crafts shows, and a reunion booked in the gymnasium in the near future.“A huge part of our mission is to reach out to visitors and guests and to promote event facilities,” White said.There are funds being raised in hopes of eventually air conditioning the gymnasium. As of now, only the lobby and upstairs, where the offices are located are air conditioned. Ten years ago when they remodeled the auditorium, White said, it was going to cost $100,000. Now three years later, it would cost closer to $200,000 to install a unit. During the Kansas Wheat Festival last year, fans were sold by Memorial Auditorium board members to raise money toward the project.“We are interested in helping with the project,” White said. “It opens another set of doors if it is air conditioned.”White began duties as Executive Director in March, and Wanda Kelsey, who has 10 years previous Chamber of Commerce experience in Kingman, was hired shortly before White as office manager. This will be the team’s first Wheat Festival, which is scheduled for July 8-12.During the Kansas Wheat Fest, the downstairs lobby will be open with volunteers selling buttons and taking entry forms for activities. The Veterans Room will have an open house, and it will be the first time the room has been on display since the remodel.Wheat Fest buttons are now on sale for $3 at all five financial institutions, Walmart, Dillons, and are available from any Chamber board member.Follow us on Twitter.

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments Sumner Newscow report — A 21-year-old Conway Springs man, who was trapped in a grain bin of soybeans for nearly seven hours, is now out of the hospital according to Wichita media reports. Emergency crews were called to the Conway Springs Co-op at 524 E. Parallel at about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, before getting him removed after seven hours.  “He came out laughing, and saying he needed to get back to work in the morning and clean up this mess,” said Elevator General Manager Pat Lies to KAKE News. “Obviously we’re all blessed to have him come out unscathed.” The victim, whose name has not been released, was doing routine maintenance to get a soybean bin ready for a new crop, when the soybeans began sucking him down. Specially trained crew from the Sedgwick Co. and Wichita fire departments arrived on scene shortly after. A team of two was lowered by rope into the elevator where to reach the victim, then shoulder deep in soybeans. “He was vertical, standing up right in the lowest part of the grain so he was trapped to the extreme,” said Capt. Tony Tracy, who headed the rescue team. “It was a pretty lucky situation and the right chain of events that we got here in time and were able to get him out before anything worse happened.” Emergency workers said the man remained alert and in good spirits throughout the rescue efforts as workers removed grain, bucket by bucket until the victim was freed and lifted to safety.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
