By Karen Warren, Houston Chronicle Published 6:07 pm CDT, Tuesday, September 10, 2019 Rocky (ID: 41349485) is a 9-month-old, male, yellow Labrador retriever mix available for adoption from the Houston Humane Society. Photographed, Tuesday, Sept. 10, 2019, in Houston. Rocky was brought into the shelter as a stray in April, with a broken leg, that the vets had to amputate. He was adopted out, but returned because he did not get along with cats. He's a precious boy, who runs, jumps and plays without needing that back leg. His adoption fees have been waived, as he has a sponsor. less Rocky (ID: 41349485) is a 9-month-old, male, yellow Labrador retriever mix available for adoption from the Houston Humane Society.

Denver Post sports writer Patrick Saunders posts his Rockies Mailbag every other week on Tuesdays during the season and once per month during the offseason. Pose a Rockies — or MLB — related question for the Rockies Mailbag. Hey Patrick! I’ve never loved Charlie Blackmon in center field. I’ve always seen him as sub-par defensively and would rather not see him burn himself out playing center in that huge outfield at Coors Field. I know Garrett Hampson is naturally an infielder but what are the odds they try him out in center and to utilize his crazy speed?— Blake Coulter, Littleton Blake, there certainly is a chance that Hampson gets a look in center field during spring training, but David Dahl also will get a shot, as well Ian Desmond, whom both general manager Jeff Bridich and manager Bud Black have said will move from first base to the outfield. Hampson remains in the running to replace DJ LeMahieu at second base, where he’ll be competing with Ryan … [Read more...] about Rockies Mailbag: Fans not impressed with lack of offseason moves from Bridich and Co.
Eliza Relman, provided by Published 6:05 am CST, Friday, January 25, 2019 Hollis Johnson Editors note: This article was first published in March 2017. It has been updated in light of Roger Stone being indicted by the Mueller probe. It took nearly 20 years for Roger Stone to realize his dream. Since the 1980s, the self-described "dirty trickster" who's been in and around Republican politics for half a century, had made it something of a mission to make Donald Trump president. Despite parting ways with the Trump campaign in August 2015 — Trump says he fired Stone for hogging the media spotlight; Stone says he quit because Trump attacked Megyn Kelly — Stone has remained one of Trump's most loyal true believers. And now Special Counsel Robert Mueller has indicted him with one count of obstruction, five counts of false statements, and one count of witness tampering, according to a Justice Department filing on Thursday. Stone was put in the crosshairs of … [Read more...] about Meet Roger Stone: One of Donald Trump’s most loyal supporters, who was just indicted by the Mueller probe
With spring training less than three weeks away, there is the growing possibility that Nolan Arenado and the Rockies will enter salary arbitration to determine the amount of his 2019 contract. According to a major-league source, the two sides probably will go to arbitration rather than reach an agreement on the all-star third baseman’s one-year contract. Arenado is scheduled to become a free agent after the 2019 season. Arenado sought $30 million and the Rockies countered with a $24 million contract when the two sides exchanged figures earlier this month. Speculation has been that Arenado will ultimately land a deal around $27 million. Whether through negotiations or arbitration, Arenado’s salary will break the arbitration record of $23 million, set last year by Josh Donaldson, then with the Blue Jays. This year’s arbitration hearings run from Feb. 1-20. When the two sides are unable to come to terms, they meet in front of an arbitration panel. Each … [Read more...] about Nolan Arenado, Rockies likely headed toward salary arbitration hearing next month
IT IS the McCoy Contractors Classic Chase Day at Warwick on Saturday and, following the bumper crowd of just under 7,000 on New Year’s Eve, there should be another good turnout as the course celebrates past winners of its most valuable race of the season, writes David Hucker. Now named the McCoy Contractors Civil Engineering Classic Chase, the race has attracted 25 entries, including the 2018 victor Milansbar, whose bold front-running display was just one of a number of high-profile winners that helped launch the career of Bryony Frost. Milansbar then had two more races when ridden by different jockeys before being reunited with Frost in the Randox Health Grand National where he finished fifth to Tiger Roll. He ran from a rating of 134 last year when disposing of another of Saturday’s entries Cogry, but is now on a mark of 140 and was well-beaten on his seasonal reappearance at Sandown Park in December. Although trainer Lucinda Russell had earmarked the race for 2017 … [Read more...] about Rocky’s Treasure tipped for Classic Chase at Warwick
