B.C.’s provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry says most people are feeling stressed out because of the pandemic and advocated reaching out to others to ask if they are OK.

Henry made the comments during a keynote address Saturday morning to more than 1,500 girls, aged 11 to 13, at Science World’s third annual Girls and STEAM event.

This year’s event was the first time it was held virtually. STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, arts and math.

Henry repeated her “be kind to each other” message to the girls, and suggested they reach out to the nerdy, shy person in their class.

“All of us are feeling really stressed out…Just reach out and ask someone if they are OK,” she said.

“Kindness is about compassion. It’s about understanding.”

COVID-19: ‘Ask someone if they are OK,’ Dr. Henry tells girls at Science World STEAM event

Henry, who said she feels anxious a lot these days, meditates and tries to stay physically active by going for a run. She also said it’s important to connect with other people when she feels stressed.

Henry seemed shaken as she told the girls that these are “scary times” especially given B.C.’s growing number of COVID-19 cases. On Friday B.C. set a daily record with 589 new cases.

She said the pandemic has been very tough for young people, with no birthday parties, or being able to see relatives, and not being able to hug their friends.

“But we need to keep doing what we are doing,” she said, “Who knew we’d be washing our hands so many times in 2020.”

A fan of the Sherlock Holmes novels since she was a girl, Henry told the STEAM event that when she first heard about the field of

Henry Colombi leads Texas Tech to first Big 12 win in his first start for Red Raiders

The introduction could not have been better Saturday.

Henry Colombi, who earned his first chance to start at quarterback, marched the Texas Tech offense down the field and capped off a 10-play drive by recording a 1-yard run in which he dove into the end zone against the West Virginia defense.

But, it wasn’t a quarterback who provided the game-changing, offensive punch in the Big 12 Conference game.

Instead, Red Raider linebackers Jacob Morgenstern and Colin Schooler caused a fumble which Zech McPherson returned 56 yards for the go-ahead touchdown in a 34-27 victory over the Mountaineers inside Jones AT&T Stadium.

With the victory, Texas Tech (2-3, 1-3) snapped a three-game losing streak in conference play by fending off a late-game charge by the Mountaineers (3-2, 2-2).

Colombi, who threw for 169 yards and one touchdown, played efficiently but found himself walking toward the sideline following a three-and-out with Texas

Texas Tech QB Henry Colombi looks to ‘keep working’ to jumpstart flailing Red Raider offense in his first start

During a Florida recruiting visit in 2016, then-Utah State coach Matt Wells told Henry Colombi he could play quarterback for him someday.

Saturday, Wells’ prediction will be fulfilled after winning not one, but two recruiting battles for Colombi. A redshirt junior, Colombi will be making his first college start when Texas Tech (1-3, 0-3 Big 12) hosts surprising West Virginia (3-1, 2-1).

“It’s one of those emotional moments that is kind of behind the scenes,” Colombi said this week on a media Zoom call. “You keep your head on straight and keep working.”

Colombi replaces Alan Bowman, who had been viewed as both the present and future of the Tech offense. Bowman started the first four games, was hurt early against Kansas State and then replaced late in a loss to Iowa State.

During the bye week, Wells made maybe the biggest decision of his Tech career to move to
