Iowa linebacker Spearman arrested, suspended

Sports

October 25th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — University of Iowa football player Reggie Spearman has been arrested on suspicion of drunken driving, leading coach Kirk Ferentz to announce a minimum one-game suspension for the linebacker. Iowa City police records show the 19-year-old was arrested just after midnight Friday on suspicion of operating a vehicle while intoxicated. Spearman was booked into jail around 1:30 a.m. Saturday and later released.

Ferentz said in a statement Saturday that he was disappointed to hear of the charge against Spearman and that team officials will “work with authorities in gathering all the facts.” Ferentz said that Spearman will face consequences other than the suspension, but did not provide details.

The Hawkeyes had a bye week, and host Northwestern next Saturday.

Pheasant hunting season opens today (Saturday) in Iowa

October 25th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

Today (Saturday), marks the start of the pheasant hunting season in Iowa. Mick Klemesrud, a spokesman for the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, says weather conditions should be ideal for hunters this weekend, though there will be challenges. “We’ve got a lot of crops still out in the field and that could cause a little bit of tougher hunting if there’s a lot of standing corn for the birds to escape to,” Klemesrud says. “On the flip side of that, it could provide some better late season hunting because the birds haven’t been hunted that much.” He’s hopeful the number of hunters on opening day will be up this year after a drop in 2013.

“We’re hopeful that we can hit 60,000,” Klemesrud says. “Last year was our lowest on record of about 41,000. Traditionally, back in the late ’80s and ’90s, we’ve had opening day numbers around 200,000. We used to call it the largest sporting event in the state. We’re hoping that some of them come back.” Hunters should always get permission from land owners to hunt on their property. Klemesrud has some other safety tips.

“We always want to stress blaze orange, knowing the zone of fire, stay in a straight line, talk to everybody in the hunt so they all know what their role is and where there zones of fire are going to be,” he says. “You always want to be seen in the field. Go beyond the minimum. Wear as much blaze orange as you can.” The DNR says there was one hunting-related injury during the pheasant season last year.

Cardinals Wainwright undergoes elbow surgery

Sports

October 25th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright has undergone what the team describes as minor elbow surgery that should not set him back for next season. The Cardinals say Friday’s operation was an arthroscopic procedure to trim a small piece of cartilage from the right elbow. The 33-year-old Wainwright is expected to begin physical therapy in two weeks and resume his offseason throwing program in eight weeks.

General manager John Mozeliak and manager Mike Matheny made no mention of the injury at a news conference to review the season earlier this week. Wainwright went 20-9 with a career-low 2.38 ERA in 32 starts this season. The team says an initial MRI came back negative, but Wainwright requested additional tests and the findings of a second MRI resulted in the decision to operate.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Jeremy Guthrie pitched shutout ball into the sixth inning, Lorenzo Cain drove in an early run off Tim Hudson and made a pair of nifty catches, and the Kansas City Royals beat the San Francisco Giants 3-2 Friday night to take a 2-1 World Series lead. Cain’s RBI groundout three batters in put the Royals ahead, and Kansas City expanded its lead to 3-0 in the sixth when Alex Gordon hit an RBI double off Cain and scored on Eric Hosmer’s single off left-hander Javier Lopez.
