Shields roughed up in the Bronx, loses to Yanks - Wilkes Barre Times-Leader

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
Pettitte said he found something with his two-seam fastball during his pregame warmups and it carried into the game, but the strikeouts still surprised him. "I don't really try to strike guys out," Pettitte said. "I feel like I am able to keep guys off balance. My command was really good tonight." Freddy Garcia gave up two hits in 1 2-3 innings to finish the four-hitter. The Yankees were 0 for 2 with the bases loaded in the first inning Tuesday and were hitting .153 (9 for 59) overall before Martin connected in the fourth on an 0-2 pitch for the team's fourth grand slam this year. "I had Martin 0-2 then I missed my spot, forced a fastball up," Shields said. The Yankees scored two runs in the first when Johnson's throw skipped past first baseman Pena's glove with the bases full. They loaded them again in the fourth on a single and two walks before Martin connected for his fourth career grand slam. "I always prepare myself that the throw is going to be short," Pena said. "On that play I did my best to pick it for him, us. Unfortunately it was between a short throw and a short hop and I didn't get it." Shields was 5-12 with 4.39 ERA in 23 starts against the Yankees and 2-7 with a 5.00 ERA at Yankee Stadium coming in. He gave up a season-high seven runs five earned and seven hits in five innings this time and has lost his last three decisions. "He was not as sharp as we normally see him," Maddon said of Shields. "I think he was over-trying on his part, just not pitching to the spots that he normally does when he is going good." NOTES: Matsui is wearing No. 35 with the Rays in part to honor former Yankees teammate Mike Mussina. "Hopefully I can end my career with the kind of numbers and performance that Mussina had," Matsui said. Mussina, who wore No. 35 most of his career, won 20 games in his final season. ... Longoria (left hamstring), who has been on the disabled list May 1, is close to going out on a rehab assignment. Maddon said he is doing baseball activities and is with the team in New York.

Lexington's Gay faces tall order at Olympic trials - Lexington Herald Leader

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
Ashton Eaton lives up to his potential. ¦ Our best hopes in the long-distance races will be Bernard Lagat and Galen Rupp in the 5,000, Matt Centrowitz and Jenny Simpson, both surprise medalists in the 1,500 last year in South Korea, and, of course, Lopez Lomong, whose inspirational journey from a "Lost Boy" of Sudan to American Olympian helped earn him the role of U.S. flag bearer at the 2008 Games. The weather forecast for the first weekend in Eugene calls for highs in the low 60s and a good chance of rain. In other words, it could feel very much like London, which doesn't bother too many people at this stage. "For me, I don't care if it's raining, snowing," Richards-Ross said. "I've been waiting for this for four years." ...

Charlotte Bobcats hire Mike Dunlap as coach - Chicago Sun-Times

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
Monday because an official announcement was still being planned for the next two days. The Charlotte Observer first reported the news. The choice comes as a bit of a surprise because Dunlap was not one of the team’s three finalists and rejoined the picture late. He was originally one of the 10 candidates to interview for the job, but the team trimmed the list to former Utah coach Jerry Sloan, Indiana assistant coach Brian Shaw and Los Angeles Lakers assistant coach Quin Snyder last week. At some point Dunlap re-entered the picture and was offered and accepted the job Monday night. A text message sent to Dunlap was not immediately returned. Dunlap, 54, will replace Paul Silas, whose contract was not renewed after Charlotte finished with the worst winning percentage in NBA history this past season. The Bobcats were 7-59. A former assistant coach with the Denver Nuggets, Dunlap assumed all duties with the St. John’s program after head coach Steve Lavin took a leave of absence to deal with prostate cancer. Dunlap has spent most of his career at the college level and has worked under Lute Olson in A...

'Frog juice' drug found in horses - El Paso Inc.

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
Texas. Some of the results were first reported on, the website of The Times-Picayune in New Orleans. “This whole thing has really taken us by surprise,” said Charles A. Gardiner III, executive director of the Louisiana Racing Commission. “It couldn’t have come at a worse time. We’re fighting back federal intervention. We’re under attack and losing our fan base. Fans believe that the sport is dirty, that there is cheating. And here we have an obvious attempt to cheat.” In Louisiana, Gardiner said, 11 horses, both quarter horses and thoroughbreds, tested positive for dermorphin, though none of them broke down. He said two quarter horses in particular earned big purses. “A lot of money’s got to be given back,” he said, adding: “I’m sure that there are more positives across the country. It’s not unusual that something isn’t being detected.” Barker of the Louisiana State lab said 15 horses in Oklahoma had tested positive for dermorphin. Industrial Laboratories in suburban Denver was the first lab to successfully identify dermorphin in postrace testing. It was not easy. Petra Hartmann, director of direct testing services for the company, said clients relayed that the frog secretion was being used, and later some seized materials did turn out to be dermorphin. “We identified dermorphin,” Hartmann said. “We knew it was out there.” But, she said, the lab’s test could not identify the drug in horses after they raced. After racing regulators kept insisting that the substance was in use, “We went back to the drawing board,” Hartmann said. Industrial’s chief scientist subsequently developed a more sensitive test, specifically for this compound, she said. “There is no resting in this business,” she said. “You are always chasing something, trying to determine what’s rumor, what’s real.” ...

Community Foundation gets surprise bequest - Fort Wayne Journal Gazette

Sun, Apr 22, 2012
Drummond during his high school and college years and remained a lifelong friend, in a written statement issued by the foundation. It said the gift was given without restrictions. "This gift was a surprise to us," said David Bennett, executive director of the Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne, in the statement. "I only wish we could have thanked Mr. Drummond for his gift. However, it will be used to address needs in this community, just as our donor wanted. "What a marvelous story of a local person who for many of us gave a fortune to help organizations in his hometown not only now, but in perpetuity." Drummond grew up in Fort Wayne and was a graduate of Central High School, according to his obituary in The Journal Gazette. As an adul...

Scott K. Rohring, Buffalo native, trial attorney

Sun, Apr 22, 2012
Feb. 7, 1970—April 16, 2012 A once-in-a-lifetime trip to London for a behind- the-scenes tour at the movie studio where the Harry Potter movies were made was a surprise from attorney Scott K. Rohring and his wife to their two children during the recent school recess. On the flight home, Mr. Rohring became ill with a catastrophic infection that spread throughout his body. The plane made an emergency landing in Gander, Newfoundland, and Mr. Rohring was near death, with a temperature of 106, by the time he reached the local hospital. He then was airlifted t...

Former Liverpool FC star Ray Houghton says there is no crisis at Anfield as ... -

Sun, Apr 22, 2012
Boas had been built up so high, it was inevitable he would come crashing down once results started to go against him. Now, the wheel has stopped on Liverpool. It shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise to see the Reds in the firing line. February’s Carling Cup win brought a welcome end to six years’ worth of trophy drought, but in the league the negative statistics are piling up. Liverpool currently sit below neighbours Everton, their recent run of six defeats in seven league games is the club’s worst sequence for 59 years, while they have won just five of 15 home league games, and managed to drop significant points to four of the bottom five clubs over the past four months. But there is always somebody worse off than yourself, and on Saturday Kenny Dalglish’s side run into another of the Premier League’s under-fire sides, as Aston Villa visit Anfield. Villa’s ‘crisis’ is far more conspicuous; Alex McLeish’s men are just five points above the relegation zone, having won just two of their last 11 league games. Only Wigan Athletic, in 19th, have managed fewer league goals. Ray Houghton knows a thing or two about both clubs. The former Republic of Ireland i...

Mike Connell: End of the Underground Railroad - Port Huron Times Herald

Sun, Apr 22, 2012
Virginia. Brown came to Chatham, Ontario, about 30 miles from Marine City, to recruit volunteers for the Harpers Ferry expedition. It would not surprise me to learn that Thompson joined Brown there, although I can find no documentation of it. «« »» IN THE PRESIDENTIAL election of 1844, James Birney of the abolitionist Liberty Party received a single vote in St. Clair County. Thompson proudly boasted that vote was his. Birney, a Kentuckian who moved to Bay City in the early 1840s, received less than 3% of the vote nationally. Even so, many historians believe he swung the election from the Whig candidate, Henry Clay, to James K. Polk, a Democrat. If so, it changed history. Clay opposed the annexation of Texas and the...

Gary and Betty Jo Glenn are dedicated supporters of the Boys Home of the South ... - Greenville News

Sun, Apr 1, 2012
Page 2 of 2) Glenn is a longtime contributor whose interest elevated when he attended a Thanksgiving dinner there in the mid-1990s. “I was surprised to see so many people I knew, but didn’t know they were connected to the Boys Home. It grew from there.” An avid fan of stock car racing who has worked in some kind of auto-related business for more than 30 years, Glenn said he often thought about the home as he drove past it on U.S. 25 South. Each time, he was reminded of the day more than 50 years ago when it appeared that he would be living at the Connie Maxwell Children’s Home in Greenwood. His parents had divorced when he was 3 years old. When he was 10 and living with his father, his father’s job required extensive travel, so the Children’s Home seemed like the best option. Glenn vividly recalls that drive to the Children’s Home. “We drove there with my suitcase packed. I thought I’d be living there, and it was frightening to a child,” he recalls. As it turned out, Glenn bounced among several relatives during his teen years but never lived in an orphanage. But life experience has given Glenn and his wife insights into the problems of young men who live in children’s homes and foster homes around the Upstate. “The staff is so caring and dedicated,” Betty Jo says. “Everyone from the house parents to the kitchen staff does what they can to help those boys learn life skills, and they don’t make big money doing it. “The boys who go there learn independent living. They learn cooking and laundry. It’s remarkable, the skills they learn in a short time there,” she says. “Children can’t help themselves. I was fortunate to have a great home life; Gary was not. The average person might not be aware that plenty of children are removed from homes every week, and it happens to families in all walks of life,” Betty Jo adds. Glenn often combines his love for the youngsters at the Boys Home with his love for stock car racing, his primarily hobby. Each summer, he’s made it possible for Boy’s Home residents to attend races at Greenville-Pickens Speedway. “It’s just a little thing. But you’d be surprised how many of these kids have never seen a race. They just don’t get to do the little things that children in traditional family units experience on a regular basis. I guess t...

Bozich: Rick Pitino rewriting his destiny - USA TODAY

Sun, Apr 1, 2012
Ralph Willard, one of Pitino's closest friends and a former Louisville assistant coach. "But that's who Rick is. Rick's a guy who gets people to do things they don't believe they can do. Am I surprised Louisville is in the Final Four? Yes. Am I shocked? Not at all. Rick's enjoying this because he really loves this team for never packing it in when a lot of teams would have." Love wasn't the emotion percolating around the program about four weeks ago. Not after the Cardinals scored 17 points in the first half and Pitino canceled the Senior Night post-game ceremony against South Florida. Not after the Cards got rolled by Syracuse in their final regular-season game. The Cards were 22-9. They were sitting on a seven seed in the Big East tournament. That means they were projected to be sent home after two games. They had failed to score 60 points eight times this season — a first in Pitino's 26 seasons of college coaching. Critics started chirping Pitino would be 60 in September. He'd seen one Final Four in 10 seasons at Louisville. The gap from the national title he won at Kentucky was about to become 16 years. It became fashionable to quote his salary. Pitino cleared the Carrier Dome locker room of everybody but the active players. One by one, his assistants, training staff and injured players made solemn exits into a narrow hallway while Pitino talked to the guys he expected to resurrect this season. "Coach pretty much put fire under us by telling us, 'Your legacy will either be getting knocked out in the first round in each tournament or you can have great success and be remembered,'" said senior Chris Smith. Smith said Pitino walked from player to player, pointing his right index finger at each guy who had been knocked out of the NCAA tournament in the first round the last two seasons. "He pretty much told us the ball was in our court, and that everybody was healthy so we had no excuses," Smith said. No excuses have been necessary. The Cards have won eight in a row for the first time since December. They have won four NCAA tournament games, one more than Louisville had won the last three seasons. Now comes Kentucky, the best team in America since December. It's not a misprint or miscalculation that the Wildcats are favored by 8 ½ points. It's an honest reflection of the gap in ta...
