David Goricki The Detroit News Published 5:42 PM EDT Apr 21, 2019 Howell — Molly Carney was happy she didn’t have to deal with any near-death experiences prior to the season the way she did a year ago when she escaped serious injury when she was involved in a car accident during spring break in Georgia. Carney is enjoying her junior season while pitching for Howell, which advanced to the Division 1 state semifinals at Michigan State last season. Carney had an outstanding freshman season in 2017 when she was 32-3 with a 1.50 ERA to help Howell win the Kensington Lakes Activities Association championship while advancing to the regional finals. But prior to last season, Carney was traveling back from a resort area in Georgia when she was involved in a horrific accident with her mother behind the wheel. “We were just leaving Tybee Island and a car was rolling in the air and came at us and smashed the front of our car,” Carney said of last … [Read more...] about Prep softball preview: David Goricki’s top players

Private jets are your subways. Weekends with pals at $2,000-a-night island resorts are your backyard barbecues. The question “what to do for kicks?” becomes harder to answer. That may be why Robert K. Kraft, the owner of the New England Patriots, ended up on stage with Cardi … [Read more...] about Robert Kraft Awaits Your Judgment
When René F. Jones was a 27-year-old new hire at M&T Bank Corp., he went for lunch in the cafeteria and sat at an empty table. Someone else carrying his own tray walked up and asked, "Is this seat taken?" It was Robert G. Wilmers, the bank's chairman and CEO. Gradually, other employees filled the rest of the seats. Wilmers, as was his nature, peppered Jones with questions. Jones was thrilled by the experience and called his mother that night to tell her about it. "That was one of my first impressions of the bank, that there was always access," said Jones, now 54. "Everyone was equal and there was no pomp and circumstance." Neither Jones nor Wilmers likely imagined where that first encounter nearly 27 years ago would lead. Jones would rise through M&T and became a close associate and friend of Wilmers. When Wilmers died in December 2017, Jones was named his successor days later. Jones had … [Read more...] about At M&T, a tough act to follow as Jones settles into Wilmers’ job

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — In the NFL community, one word might be feared more than any other: Foxborough. It is where the rosy Super Bowl dreams of visiting teams die a frosty death each January. It is where the New England Patriots, before a raucous southeastern Massachusetts home crowd, rarely lose a playoff game (this century’s postseason record there is 19-3). It is where NFL road teams are not only defeated, but rejected under peculiar circumstances. See: Deflategate, Tom Brady and the tuck rule. How did out-of-the way, small-town Foxborough, of all places, come to be synonymous with heartache in NFL cities from coast to coast while blossoming into a shrine to comprehensive Patriots glory? The Patriots, after all, came to Foxborough in 1971 only because no one else wanted them. It helped that the stadium land, 30 miles south of Boston, was free. Foxborough (population: 17,000) remains firmly rooted in its pre-Patriots past, with dairy cows visible from the top of Gillette … [Read more...] about How did out-of-the way, small-town Foxborough become synonymous with Patriots glory?
