Donations for Dan Thompson

Donations for Dan

Eagle Pizza, the staff, and Dan’s family members are grateful for the outpouring of love, prayers and support the New Albany community has sent. In response to this, Eagle Pizza is in the process of setting up a fund for donations to be made to help Dan’s family through this hardship. Information will be posted as soon as this process is complete.

 

Background Story

The accident:  On November 18, 2012, Dan was helping a neighbor trim a tree.  While he was holding the ladder, a large tree branch fell and knocked Dan to the ground, making his head hit the concrete sidewalk.  He was life-flighted to OSU Medical Center, where they ascertained he needed immediate surgery to remove part of his skull to alleviate the pressure of blood flow on the brain, a subdural hematoma.  Through ct scans, the neurosurgeon realized that major damage had been realized by  the right side of the brain, along with many skull fractures, including the base of the skull, and the bone around the carotid artery and the jugular vein.
We are steadfastly praying around the clock that Dan is completely healed.  The doctors tell us that he has extensive brain damage, but our Father God is a great healer!The family certainly welcomes your visits to the SICU waiting room, however no visits are allowed for Dan in ICU.  The doctors have restricted his visitors for the next few days.Daily updates on Dan’s recovery can be found at:http://eagles-pizza.com/

Eagles are flying high!

Friday night everything was going right for the New Albany Eagle’s. The only thing that could stop the offense’s attack was Mother Nature as the game was called late in the fourth quarter due to lightning. The final score was 66 to 14 and was the Eagles third win in a row.

Pelotonia Riders in New Albany

New Albany Welcomes Pelotonia Riders August 11 & 12

SATURDAY RIDE ENDS AT BEVELHYMER PARK; SUNDAY RIDE ENDS IN MARKET SQUARE

Please exercise added caution and patience as you travel in and around New Albany this weekend as our community welcomes the 6,000 plus participants of Pelotonia, a two-day grass roots bicycle tour aimed toward raising funds and awareness for cancer treatment and research.

On Saturday, riders will leave Columbus at 7:00 AM on a route that will pass through New Albany and stop at Bevelhymer Park.   Residents can expect to see heavy bicycle traffic from 9:00 AM to Noon along Beech, Kitzmiller, Central College, Walnut and especially Bevelhymer.

On Sunday, the remaining 1,500 riders who will be completing 155 or 180 mile rides will be arriving at Market Square in New Albany – right in front of the library from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM.  Be sure to watch for some road restrictions along Market Square and for all the riders as they approach from the north along State Route 605 to Village Hall Road past the police station and Village Hall, and ultimately to the library.

There will be plenty of areas to support participants, especially along Village Hall Road near the finish line on Sunday.  Parking will be available at various places in the Village Center including the McCoy Center and behind the medical offices next to CVS.   Come early and grab lunch or ice cream at a local eatery and visit the steps of New Albany Village Hall where Scouts from Troop 364 will be manning a “sign table” to welcome your favorite rider at the big finish.

 

Remember to give yourself more time to arrive to your final destination this weekend.

News from the City of New Albany

Football Recruting Update: Buckeyes back to baker’s dozen

Urban Meyer and his coaching staff landed a local three-star recruit as Darron Lee pledged his allegiance to Buckeye Nation.

Lee, a senior-to-be at New Albany High School in New Albany, Ohio, a suburb northeast of Columbus, currently garners the three-star rating from both Rivals.com and Scout.com.

Though Lee, who’s listed at 6-foot-2 and weighs 205 pounds, has the ability to play quarterback, wide receiver or safety at the college level. Rivals tabs him as an “athlete” while Scout lists him as a safety. He was recruited by co-defensive coordinator Luke Fickell, so the odds are better than 50/50 that he’ll end up playing on defense, and if he bulks up in size, he could eventually become a linebacker.

What’s surprising is that Lee is only ranked as the 59th-best safety in the country by Scout.com, while Rivals.com has him ranked as the 60th-best prospect from the state of Ohio. Clearly, he’s a either a “diamond in the rough” or a late bloomer in the recruiting circles. Lee has spent the last two weekends in camp at Ohio State before getting the scholarship offer.

With Lee on board, the 2013 recruiting class is back to 13 with quarterback J.T. Barrett from S.H. Rider High School in Wichita Falls, Tx., tight end Marcus Baugh from J.W. North High School in Riverside, Calif., defensive end Joey Bosa from St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., cornerback Cameron Burrows from Trotwood-Madison High School in Trotwood, Ohio, running back Ezekiel Elliott from John Burroughs School in St. Louis, Mo., offensive tackle Evan Lisle from Centerville High School in Centerville, Ohio, quarterback/athlete Jalin Marshall from Middletown High School in Middletown, Ohio, defensive tackle Billy Price from Fitch High School in Youngstown, Ohio, defensive end Tracy Sprinkle from Elyria High School in Elyria, Ohio, safety Jayme Thompson from Central Catholic High School in Toledo, Ohio, punter Johnny Townsend from Boone High School in Orlando, Fla., and cornerback Eli Woodard from Eastern High School in Voorhees, N.J.
