What a Day!

July 4, 2010 - Michael Palmer

Friday was an eventful day. The news was not all good as I witnessed a collision in the outfield of the Cadiz Legion game that sent a young man to the hospital and then return to the office to learn that our beloved Tricia Graham, Lifestyles Editor and Taste Bud, had left the office via EMT transport.

Learning that evening that one of the outfielders, Kraig Kubancik, had been transported to Wheeling's Medical Park, X-rays revealed Kubancik has suffered a ruptured spleen, requiring emergency surgery.

Rich (Hoot) Gibson was quite taken back by this, he immediately began calling his contacts and when he learned of the seriousnes of the injury contacted the coach. Hoot had suffered the same injury in his youth and felt for the young athlete.

Kraig seems like a tough individual, aside from being a catcher, he always displayed an attitude and personality that makes me feel he will come through this set back just fine.

Tricia, we learned from her husband, had fallen due to complications from a heart condition and was transported to Allegheny Hospital in Pittsburgh for treatment.

Tricia had just celebrated a birthday and was looking forward to a full out birthday bash at the family's cabin on Seneca Lake, which is a long standing family tradition for the Fourth of July weekend. She was hoping for a nice Kayak as a gift so she could paddle around the lake. Unfortunately, the family has other holiday plans now.

Tricia is also a tough cookie, but everyone was still quite worried and all are praying for her and her family. I am sure more details will be available on these two soon, but until then I would like to solicit the prayers of our readers.

“And their prayer offered in faith will heal the sick, and the Lord will make them well. And anyone who has committed sins will be forgiven. Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and wonderful results.”
James 5:15-16
