Facebook WhatsApp NewsHealthVicky last in line to see cancer reportBy Bernie English – September 12, 2018 2351 Housing 37 Compulsory Purchase Orders issued as council takes action on derelict sites Vicky PhelanVICKY Phelan, the Limerick woman who lifted the lid on the Cervical Check cancer screening scandal, and other women affected by the issue were not given a preview of important new report despite assurances from Health Minister Simon Harris.Ms Phelan has been diagnosed with terminal cancer but was not told for three years that an audit of cervical tests had revealed that abnormalities had been missed.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up This Tuesday, Irish newspapers published an outline of what was contained in the report drawn up by the independent expert, Dr Gabriel Scally, despite promises that the women affected and their families would have sight of it before it was put into the public arena.Lorraine Walsh, one of two patients representatives appointed by Health Minister Simon Harris to a steering committee tasked with overseeing changes to the screening programme, said in an interview with RTE that Vicky Phelan and other women had been re-organising personal commitments to meet Dr Scally ahead of the publication of the report on Wednesday.She said: “I know Vicky was due to have treatment, her life-saving treatment in Dublin, and she was trying to change that so she could be briefed by Dr Gabriel Scally.Ms Walsh said the group was already “emotionally charged” ahead of the report being published and the leak was very upsetting.“It had been confirmed to us yesterday by Gabriel Scally and the minister that we would be briefed prior to the report going to Cabinet or published.“And to wake up this morning and to see news of it all over the papers, it’s just heartbreaking.“It’s just so disappointing that throughout this whole experience the main information source that we have is the media.”The report contains a series of recommendations concerning the need to review screening services and governance issues and open disclosure to any person affected by issues connected with the programme in the future.Long and short-term measures have been recommended in the report but Dr Scally has said that a commission of investigation into the CervicalCheck crisis does not need to be established.

Photo Attribution: USATSIOne of the best parts of College Gameday these days is who the guys have on as their guest picker. We’ve seen everybody from Bubba Watson to Lolo Jones and they’ll have no shortage of folks to choose from on Saturday in Stillwater.Here’s a list and the chances I’ll give each one of actually being the guy:The favoriteBoone Pickens — It’s almost too easy. He’s already there. He’s outspoken as crap (Holder and Burns would be holding hands under a desk in the Classroom Building if they gave Boone a live mic on national television) and he loves this kind of stuff.I don’t think he’s going to be the guy because I feel like Gameday usually rolls with the athlete in another sport or super-famous entertainer and Boone fits neither bill, to my knowledge.Odds: 3-1The other favoritesMatt Holliday — This is my pick. You have the Josh Holliday connection now, I think he has a house here. And he seems like the kind of guy who would be boys with Fowler and Herbs. All of my money here.Odds: 6-1Thurman Thomas — This is very much a possibility. I’ve heard he’s going to be in town and him being on Gameday would be a sweet spot. He doesn’t get the run in Stillwater Barry gets and Gameday actually doesn’t pick as many former football stars as you’d probably think but he’d be perfect.Odds: 8-1Rickie Fowler — Somebody affiliated with Gameday on Twitter said earlier this week that he wasn’t going to be in town so I doubt it’s him but they could have just been playing possum.This is his wheelhouse, though I’m not totally sure how much he actually knows about football or OSU football. I’ve never talked to him about it but he seems like the kind of guy who knows the QB, the coach, wears orange on Saturdays, and that’s it.Odds: 8-1Hunter Mahan — This is my other big bet. He lives close by, goes to a lot of games, and the Gameday crew had Bubba Watson on earlier this year so you know they aren’t anti-PGA Tour. Where do I get 5-1 odds on “Holliday or Mahan”?Odds: 10-1Garth Brooks — I don’t love him here but Gameday does love them a star. He also falls under the “lives close by” category but he’s just not around enough for me to buy in that it will be him. Still, you have to put his odds up there just because of the name.Odds: 15-1Johny Hendricks — This is very much in play. We know he’s not doing anything this week and he’s been in the news a ton of late. Plus he has family (Todd Graham alert!) in the area. I could see it.Odds: 20-1Barry Sanders — His agent hasn’t said “no” to much of late but this doesn’t really seem like his kind of gig. Though judging from some of the atrocities we’ve seen here maybe the producers don’t really care what “your kind of gig” is.Odds: 25-1The “I could see that” groupJohn Farrell — This would be a sneaky good pick. I have no idea where he lives or if he ever comes back for games but he’s certainly relevant.Odds: 40-1Bo Van Pelt — True story: I talked to him at the Crowne Plaza Invitational this year about OSU sports and he started talking about Oklahoma State’s quarterback recruits. You want somebody who actually legitimately knows what’s going on, pick him.Odds: 40-1Desmond Mason — I honestly don’t know if he’s a big enough name nationally. He is to us, obviously, but does that play on a national stage? Or does it even matter? I mean we’re talking about a show that’s had Phil Hansen and Ashton Eaton on it this year..Odds: 50-1The longshotsDoug Gottlieb — I’ve heard his name a lot but you don’t actually think ESPN is going to bring him on to one of its premier shows after he left for CBS, do you? It would be great for ratings but it’s not happening.Odds: 100-1Eddie Sutton — I imagine that phone call going “Hey coach, any interest in picking some games in the 25 degree weather on Saturday morning?” “The hell? I’m tanning that day.”Odds: 100-1Charles Howell III — He knows more about Oklahoma State football than everybody ahead of him on this list except for Bo Van Pelt. Not a big enough name though.Odds: 100-1Scott Verplank — See Howell III, Charles.Odds: 100-1The “so you’re saying there’s a chance” groupBig Country — The national media loves Country and, to be honest, what else is he going to be doing on a Saturday morning in mid-November? He would produce much, much fodder for this website so I’m all for it.Odds: 200-1James Marsden — Does he like football? Did he actually attend classes at Oklahoma State or is he just from here? If you could “Clint Chelf” to him, what would the response be?Odds: 400-1Tyson Ritter — I’m embarrassed that I’m even putting his name on here but other than Garth he’s one of the biggest musicians to have ever lived here. Negative points for not having, you know, gone to OSU. Actually, there’s no way this is happening, is there?Odds: 500-1Brent Parker — Just for LOLs.Odds: 1,000,000,000,000-1Here’s a full list of all the past celebrity Gameday guest pickers.If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.
