DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Nearly 60,000 deer in Iowa have been harvested so far this year. The state Department of Natural Resources said Tuesday that the count for the end of the first shotgun season is on par with last year. The agency says five hunters were injured during this shotgun season. About 65,000 hunters are expected to participate in the state’s second shotgun season, which begins Saturday and concludes in mid-December.

Bielema Agrees to Leave Wisconsin for Arkansas

Sports

December 4th, 2012 by Jim Field

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — A person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press that Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema (BEE’-leh-mah) has agreed to become the new coach at Arkansas.

Bielema will sign a multi-year contract soon, according to the person spoke Tuesday on condition of anonymity because the school had not yet made an official announcement.

The move was the second stunning hire at Arkansas, which brought in John L. Smith after firing Bobby Petrino earlier this year after a scandal in which Petrino hired his mistress to work in the football department.

Arkansas was 21-5 the last two seasons, but went 4-8 this season under Smith. Athletic director Jeff Long announced after the season that Smith would not return.

Bielema was 68-24 in seven seasons at Wisconsin, including an 8-5 mark this season.  It’s not known yet if Bielema will coach the Badgers in the Rose Bowl.  Wisconsin embarrassed Nebraska 70-31 in the Big 10 championship game Saturday.

Chiefs had given counseling to Belcher, girlfriend

Sports

December 4th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Police say the Kansas City Chiefs had been providing counseling to linebacker Jovan Belcher and his girlfriend before he killed her and committed suicide over the weekend.  Police Sgt. Richard Sharp told The Kansas City Star that the couple had been arguing over relationship and financial issues for months and that the team had been “bending over backward” trying to help them.

Belcher fatally shot 22-year-old Kasandra Perkins at their Kansas City home Saturday before shooting himself in the head in the Arrowhead Stadium parking lot in front of team officials who were trying to stop him, including general manager Scott Pioli and head coach Romeo Crennel.

Sharp says Belcher reportedly thanked the men for their help but said “it was too late” before he killed himself.

Chiefs begin picking up pieces after heartache

Sports

December 3rd, 2012 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs returned to work Monday at their practice facility near Arrowhead Stadium, trying to find a sense of normalcy. It was difficult to do. The locker that once belonged to Jovan Belcher, the linebacker who killed his girlfriend and then turned the gun on himself Saturday, still had all his belongings hanging in it. Coach Romeo Crennel and general manager Scott Pioli had to walk past the place in the parking lot where Belcher killed himself. Teammates gathered in meetings and to watch film and couldn’t help but notice the empty seat. Crennel said that “time heals all wounds,” and the Chiefs are hopeful the healing has begun.

Yellow caution tape outside NFL shooter’s NY home

Sports

December 3rd, 2012 by Ric Hanson

WEST BABYLON, N.Y. (AP) – Family members have put yellow caution tape across the front of the Long Island house where Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher grew up.  Four signs hanging from the tape on Monday said: “Private property. No trespassing.”  Some relatives and friends paused to look at a shrine that has been in front of the West Babylon, N.Y., house since Saturday.

It includes his football jerseys from high school, college and the NFL. His high school varsity jacket is also there, along with trophies, photos and balloons.  Investigators in Kansas City continue to search for a motive to help explain why Belcher killed his girlfriend and then himself on Saturday.
