MANHUNT: Second suspect named after nurse is gunned down on interstate while driving to work
A manhunt is underway for a second suspect accused of criminal homicide, following the shooting death of a Tennessee nurse.
The Tennesseean reports James Edward Cowan, 28, is wanted in connection with the death of Caitlyn Kaufman. On December 3, Kaufman was gunned down while driving along Interstate 440, on her way to work at the Saint Thomas West Hospital
As CrimeOnline previously reported, a Nashville Parks police officer saw Kaufman’s car against a guard rail off of Interstate 440 on the west end of the city shortly before 9 p.m. He stopped to assist, thinking it was a single-car accident.

The officer discovered Kaufman in the vehicle with at least one gunshot wound and called for assistance. Kaufman was pronounced dead at the scene. A gun was also left behind at the scene.
“That gun was test-fired and we have a 100% match of the three 9mm shell casings found on the corner of the road on I-440 the night Caitlyn was killed,” Chief Drake with Metro Nashville PD previously said.
SWAT members arrested Devaunte L. Hill, at around 6 a.m. on December 11. Authorities found Hill at an apartment in East Nashville. The suspect and the victim, Caitlyn Kaufman, did not know each other, according to police.
Authorities have now issued an arrest warrant for Cowan, although it’s unclear at this point what role he had in the shooting.
Anyone with information on Cowan’s whereabouts should contact CrimeStoppers at 615-742-7463.

How And Why Online Courses Work
Rockhounding on Vancouver Island and Gulf IslandsDonald Lovegrove2019-01-14T23:42:12-08:00
Discover ancient fossils, sedimentary chert, or just regular old pretty stones. Vancouver Island’s volcanic origin and the ancient uplifting of tectonic plates promises the energetic hounder a constant supply of interesting treasures and precious finds. Combine rockhounding with casual strolls along the beach or strenuous hikes in search of exposed mineral veins – either way, you’re in for a memorable outing amid magnificent scenery!
Sedimentary Rock Formations, Conery Crescent Beach, Pender Island, Gulf Islands, British Columbia
The abundance and accessibility of beaches on Vancouver Island makes it a ‘gold mine’ for the rockhound. Most beaches are public with good access, and full of treasure at low tide. The glacial origin of the Island is responsible for large deposits of debris full of rocks, with the fascinating geology visible everywhere here and in the Gulf Islands. Ferocious winter storms constantly churn up the coastline, offering renewed bounty to the rock enthusiast.
Even the cobble beaches within Victoria can provide areas of interest to the rockhound. Dallasite, named after Dallas Road, is a volcanic rock found on almost any beach, and is not restricted to the Island. Just outside Victoria on the way to Swartz Bay is Island View beach, the site of several palaeontological finds and a good area for rocks and fossils. Large pieces of the sedimentary cliffs that overhang the beach often crumble to the ground below, revealing precious fossils and rock specimens.
West of the city, between Sooke and Jordan River, miles of rockhounding terrain include Whiffen Spit, Sooke Bay, Otter Point and Gordon Beach. Each of these areas has its own unique beauty, geography and rock finds.
Driving north up the Island will bring you to the Cowichan Lake region, including the ridge around Lake Cowichan and the community of Youbou, known for their supplies of rhodonite. At Nanaimo there is Petroglyph Provincial Park and the Horne Lake area (Horne Lake Caves Provincial Park), which is rich in dallasite. The beaches at Parksville and Qualicum Beach are wonderful for rockhounding, beachcombing and swimming.
Englishman River Falls Provincial Park has a spectacular series of waterfalls and pools with unusual geological formations and interesting rocks and boulders. The area has been made into a provincial park and campground, and it is an easy day trip from Victoria. To get there, drive west out of Parksville for ten minutes on well-marked roads.
Many of the Gulf Islands are home to interesting geology, and provide good areas for rock hounding, particularly Saltspring Island, Saturna Island and Hornby Island.
Wherever you travel on Vancouver Island, it is possible to discover interesting geological specimens. The experienced rockhound will not find it difficult to search through the overgrowth and vegetation of inland areas, while the novice may want to stick to the beach. Either way, the trails, roads and paths that crisscross the Island make it possible to have a rewarding rockhounding experience.

Online Recovery Doesn’t Just Work; It’s Preferred
In the spring, as the coronavirus spread through the country and states called for citizens to stay at home, people with substance use disorders (SUDs) and seeking, living in, and supporting recovery were concerned. The combination of not being able to attend traditional meetings and treatment programs, with the general anxiety about the COVID pandemic, threatened to put many at serious risk. Heightened anxiety can be a trigger for people with SUDs, especially those isolated from support networks, and unable to attend in-person meetings or recovery programs. Plus, the pandemic has exacerbated mental health illnesses like depressive disorders, anxiety, and or obsessive-compulsive disorders.
At Lionrock, we were confident that if we could reach people, we could help them. That’s because since we first opened ten years ago, we have delivered all of our services online. And in that time, we’ve helped thousands of people. We deliver all of our care online by secure video conference and mobile app and we’ve built a state of the art telehealth program – accredited by the Joint Commission.
We knew that with residential units and their freestanding intensive outpatient programs (IOP) programs closed, telehealth would become even more critical for people with SUDs. Telehealth allows people to get help from the privacy of their home. In fact, telehealth is one of the most effective ways to reach and treat people with SUDs. It’s also one of the most effective ways to support recovery. With a telehealth solution, people can seek and receive treatment from the privacy of their home. For years, online treatment has been a practical option for employed people who may have been wondering how to get the help they need without signaling to their employers that there is a problem.
Now, as we head into the fall, we have a better understanding of the impact this pandemic is having on people with SUDs. First, we know for the entire population, COVID-19 is indeed adversely impacting mental health. A recent report from the Center for Disease Control shows that symptoms of anxiety disorder and depressive disorder increased considerably in the United States during April–June of 2020, compared with the same period in 2019. But we also know, that for those who have accessed SUD treatment online, it’s helping. We recently conducted our own survey of people accessing online support and found that for people who had attended in person meetings prior to the pandemic, more than half (52%) will continue with online meetings only and 45% will continue with a combination of in-person and online meetings when restrictions are lifted. More than half of respondents cited the ability to connect with others, privacy, and flexibility as the reasons for their preference to online meetings.
We’re a long way from reaching everyone who struggles with SUD and unfortunately none of us can predict the long term impact of the pandemic, but we are encouraged by the response to online recovery programs. For more information, visit LINK.
KNUST moves part of academic work online
The Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) is adopting what management terms a blended approach in teaching and learning as part of Covid-19 preventive measures.
This includes the use of online-based learning and physical classroom activity.
Already, the V-class medium deployed at the peak of the pandemic to complete the academic year, has been strengthened to withstand any eventual pressure.
Fiber optic cables are already laid in wait for government’s free internet connectivity for schools, which will improve connectivity on campus.
“Some of the classes we will break them into smaller sections, those doing laboratory work will be structured into smaller groups. With very large classes some will join via the V-class.
“Every student who enters KNUST is given a Vodafone sim so we are in talks with Vodafone to increase the internet data so students can use it whiles they are off-campus”, Dr Bekoe said.
A complex for the School of Business is completed to ease the congestion in the lecture rooms, same has been done for the Faculty of Social Sciences.
The Faculty of Allied Science has also completed a lecture complex to absorb the increasing numbers especially from the Free SHS batch and also observance of social distancing protocol.
Veronica buckets and hand sanitizer dispensers are already installed for observance of protocols.
Dr Bekoe believes the expansion project on the main campus and that of Obuasi will help in the enforcement of all protocols.
“Obuasi campus admitted about 350 students last year, this year we intend to increase it by additional 500 students and so expansion work is also ongoing at the campus”, he added.
Meanwhile, hall and hostel managers have received training on new guidelines for resumption of school.
Protocols for persons who may show signs of Covid-19 are in place.
“We are appointing what we call Covid-19 focal persons in all the halls and hostels so that they will help with the observance of protocols and others. We have also fumigated all halls and hostels”, he emphasized.
Academic activities in the Universities resume on January 9.

He was thankful to the staff and students who followed the COVID-19 procedures and protocols, allowing them to finish the fall sports season.
As of the meeting, plans were still in the works involving the logistics of the winter sports season.
Moll thanked the three Lehigh Valley Health Network trainers who assisted during the sports season to make sure the students were safe and healthy.
Catasauqua High School Principal Adam Schnug, Catasauqua Middle School Principal Melissa Inselmann and Sheckler Elementary School Principal Eric Dauberman gave the board reports on what events are coming up at the schools.
The board members thanked the district administration and staff for the hard work in getting through this difficult year so far. Many noted they had expected another shutdown, but through the efforts of the staff members, they were able to push through.
“I couldn’t be more proud to work with you and the district,” CASD Superintendent Robert Spengler told the board members.
He noted it took hard work, organization and leadership to maintain the education levels and experiences for the students in the district.
The school board next meets 7 p.m. Jan. 12.
