Baker City native serves aboard USS New Orleans

Submitted Photo Seaman Kasey Knaus is a boatswain’s mate aboard the San Diego-based San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock ship.

A Baker City native is sailing the high seas on one of the Navy’s most advanced amphibious ships.

A 2011 Baker High School graduate, Seaman Kasey Knaus is a boatswain’s mate serving aboard the USS New Orleans according to a press release from the Navy Office of Community Outreach.

21 year-old Knaus said it is an exciting time to be in the Navy, and serving aboard a ship has truly made him a better person. 

He stated that his service has “helped me become a better leader and it improved my social skills.”

Concussion Symptoms

S. John Collins / Baker City Herald Kim Zinn, left, and Jodi Flanagan, right, finish a Sport Concussion Assessment Tool 3 test with Leonard Radinovich, Baker High School varsity baseball player. Baseball and softball players were tested during practice last week to create a baseline of fundamental information about players should they incur a head injury during the sports season.

The Baker High School varsity and junior varsity baseball and softball teams probably didn’t realize they’d be taking tests when they arrived at practice last Thursday at the Baker Sports Complex.

At various times during the practices, therapists Kim Zinn, Jodi Flanagan and Blake Marlia met one-on-one with the players.

Zinn is a physical therapist and certified athletic trainer at St. Alphonsus Rehabilitation Services (STARS). Flanagan and Marlia are physical therapists at Baker Valley Physical Therapy.
