Anthony D. Prickel, age 76 of Batesville, died Wednesday, September 13, 2017 at Christ Hospital in Cincinnati. Born September 19, 1940 in Batesville, he is the son of Alvina (Nee: Wallpe) and Alphons Prickel. He married Joyce Gindling May 5, 1962 at St. Louis Church and she preceded him in death January 17, 2002. Tony worked as an inspector for Cummins Engines in Columbus for 33 years before retiring in 1995. He was a member of the Batesville Knights of Columbus Council #1461 and the Batesville Eagles Aerie #1130.For those who knew Tony, he had two passions. To say he was a huge Notre Dame fan would be an understatement. A bigger fan would be harder to find. A close second was his love of golf. He played as often as he could. He also followed the Reds and was a casual Bengals fan. In his earlier years he enjoyed rabbit and squirrel hunting and in later years Tony became an avid Solo player. He would often stop at the Knights hall mid afternoon to sit in on a game or two.He is survived by his daughter Gayla Prickel of Greensburg; sons Scott and Chris Prickel, both of Batesville; his longtime companion Brenda Gridley; sisters Emma and Katie Prickel, both of Batesville; brother Larry Prickel of Napoleon and seven grandchildren. In addition to his wife and parents, he is also preceded in death by sister Pauline Vankirk and brothers Alvin (Buster) and Paul (Pete) Prickel.Visitation is Friday, September 15th from 4 – 7 p.m. at the Weigel Funeral Home. Funeral services are 10 a.m. Saturday, September 16th at St. Louis Church with Rev. Stan Pondo officiating. The family encourages everyone to wear their favorite Fighting Irish attire to the visitation and funeral. Burial will follow in the church cemetery. The family requests memorials to the Batesville Knights of Columbus or Shriner’s Children’s Hospital.
Disappointingly, the 2019-2020 Wisconsin men’s basketball team is not ranked amongst the top 25 teams in the country in the AP preseason poll. While this revelation is certainly a bummer, it’s not all that large of a surprise to those who follow the team closely.Ethan Happ, despite the fact that he didn’t have the developed talent necessary to go straight to the NBA, was the cornerstone of the team. Last season, Happ scored a grand total of 589 points — 196 points more than the next-highest scorer on the team, D’Mitrik Trice.Basketball: A day in the life of a UW basketball hopefulThree minutes. That’s essentially what about 50 guys went through hell and back for last Wednesday night when they flooded Read…This total of 596 points averaged out to 17.3 points per game, nearly six points more than, you guessed it, the second highest scorer Trice. On offense, the absence of Happ will be a massive blow to the Badgers and, while Trice is next in line to take up the mantle of offensive leader, he’ll have to massively up his production to fill that role.In fact, this is true for the rest of the Badger squad, as no clear scoring leader stepped up as a dominant offensive force during Happ’s final season. With all of these factors, can you blame the AP poll for leaving the Badgers out of the top 25 rankings?Men’s Basketball: Wisconsin searches for new identity post-HappThe University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team ended last season disappointingly in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, losing Read…With just one stand out recruit arriving in Madison for the 2019-2020 season, three star small forward Tyler Wahl, it’s unlikely that an unexpected leader will arise from the ranks of untested competitors.On paper, there is not much to look up to for this season, the head of the team departed without leaving a clear successor to take his place and no fresh face can bring his level of contribution. Even with this being the case, the Badgers have often been one to surprise their detractors and make them eat their words.Men’s Basketball: Changing of the Gard, Carlson and Crowl bring massive talent boostTwin Cities native Ben Carlson verbally committed to the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team Wednesday afternoon. In-state recruiting has Read…If the Badgers were to have a down year as predicted by the AP poll, things still look bright in the future. Their 2020 recruiting class includes four star power forward Ben Carlson as well as a highly-ranked three star combo guard Johnny Davis. On top of this, there is a non-zero chance that Wisconsin will land five-star small forward Ziaire Williams.This is just a small list of the recruits that Wisconsin has landed for their class of 2020. Even if the AP poll is right in believing that the Badgers won’t have an immediate replacement for Happ’s prowess, their future looks bright.

The scene of the crashA 20-year-old man will appear in court today charged in connection with a series of driving offences in Co Donegal yesterday.The man, who has an address in Derry, was arrested last night by Gardaí. The arrest came just hours after a man driving a Nissan Primera fled the scene of a crash on foot – and wearing just one shoe – in Letterkenny.That man had been tailed by Gardai from Ardara on Wednesday afternoon after he was spotted driving dangerously in the area.But instead of pulling over the man continued to drive at speed.Attempts to stop the suspect using a Stinger device failed with Gardai fearing the driver could cause serious harm to other road users.The subsequent chase lasted close to an hour and came to a sudden and dramatic end in Letterkenny.He drove into an Audi A4 on De Valera Road – close to Letterkenny’s fire station – at 4.20pm.The one-shoed suspect was apprehended close to the Polestar roundabout later.He was last night charged at Letterkenny Garda Station with a number of alleged offences. He will appear at Sligo District Court later today.MAN DUE IN COURT AFTER 60KM DONEGAL CAR CHASE was last modified: March 6th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:car crashde valera roadletterkennySligo District Court
