Consider donating today to support our mission.Wide receiver Cameron Jordan has left the Syracuse football program, SU Athletics confirmed to Syracuse.com and 247sports. The program did not give a reason for his departure. The redshirt junior was left off the updated roster that SU released Monday. With the program’s loss of Trishton Jackson and Sean Riley — Jackson a year early to the NFL and Riley to graduation — Jordan was primed to compete for a starting job. He caught three balls for 20 yards in his first two years, but was listed atop the Orange’s depth chart for outside receiver in March. Syracuse this season returns wide receivers Taj Harris, Anthony Queeley, Russell Thompson-Bishop, Ed Hendrix, Sharod Johnson, Nykeim Johnson and Courtney Jackson. Harris and Johnson were listed as the two other starters in the spring and have the most yards and receptions.Hendrix, a redshirt sophomore, was listed as the second string to Jordan in March’s version of the depth chart. He’s yet to appear in a game for the Orange after missing his first two seasons recovering from separate knee injuries. In his senior year of high school, Hendrix totaled 27 receptions for 585 yards and 14 touchdowns for H.D. Woodson (Washington, D.C.).

ALGONA — Three men arrested in Kossuth County in the past week face third-degree kidnapping charges for allegedly trying to prevent a person from providing information to authorities.Criminal complaints filed on December 31, 2018, state that the alleged victim got into a car with Joshua James Smith and Austin Allan Hammond in the early morning hours of May 29, 2017, and was taken to a rural area of northwest Kossuth County and assaulted. Afterwards the alleged victim stated he wanted to go home and instead was taken to the Goose Lake Wildlife Area in far Northern Kossuth County and assaulted again. It is alleged that Christian Daniel Whitesell was present at Goose Lake and allowed for the victim to be assaulted for a second time.Hammond was arrested on January 4 by Algona Police while Smith and Whitesell were taken into custody by the Kossuth County Sheriff’s Department on January 7. Third Degree Kidnapping is a Class C Felony. Hammond is scheduled to have a preliminary hearing in Kossuth County Court on January 15 while Smith and Whitesell are scheduled to appear on January 18.
DES MOINES — The Iowa Department of Natural Resources has a series of town hall meetings scheduled to discuss possible changes to hunting rules and regulations and other topics.DNR spokesman, Mick Klemesrud, says those include meetings this week in Ventura and Algona. “We have 18 meetings set up across the state. And these are public meetings where our local staff will come in and provide a recap of the hunting and trapping seasons,” Klemesrud says. “They’ll give population updates, and they’ll talk about hunter participation, trapper participation and just what to expect and what we’re looking at as potential rule changes.”He says one rule change involves the waterfowl hunting zones. “We are going to increase the size of the Missouri River Zone to actually go all the way to the Mississippi across southern Iowa to create kind of a new central zone, shift the southern border of the north zone up a little bit. And then modify the season dates accordingly,” according to Klemesrud. “So the southern zone will have later season dates, the central zone will have the old southern zone season dates, and the north zone will probably stay fairly close to what it has been.”There’s could be some other rule changes as well. “We are also looking at expanding and increasing the number of otters that trappers can harvest. And there are some other deer quotas, and things like that,” he says. Klemesrud says they expect to have a good turnout. “Hunters like to talk about hunting and they like to come to these. They’ve got a like-minded audience — they’re hearing things that they enjoy — and hunter participation is definitely a part of these meetings,” Klemesrud says.Comments collected from these public meetings will be considered along with other related comments received by the Iowa DNR prior to proposing changes to hunting rules and regulations. Proposed rules will be presented to the Natural Resource Commission during a regular public meeting for consideration and additional public comment.The meetings locally will take place this Thursday at 7:00 PM — one meeting will be held at the Clear Lake Wildlife Unit headquarters at 15326 Balsam Avenue in Ventura, while the Algona meeting will take place at the Water’s Edge Nature Center at 1010 250th Street.
