Rabbit season is open

Ag/Outdoor, News, Sports

September 11th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

Rabbit season got underway in Iowa this month. Iowa Department of Natural Resources wildlife biologist, Todd Bogenschutz says hunters shouldn’t have any trouble finding targets. “On our roadside surveys they’re actually a little bit down from last year, not much, basically unchanged,” Bogenschutz says. “But our rabbit numbers are 20 percent above the long-term average right now — so we’ve got plenty of bunnies in Iowa.”

While the population is doing well, he says fewer hunters are looking to hunt rabbits.
He says the number of hunters has been trending down and he is not sure if that is following the pattern of more people moving from rural to urban settings. “There’s just a lot more opportunity for other species right now, 30 years ago we didn’t have a turkey season or deer season, or giant Canada geese,” Bogenschutz says. He says rabbits are a good way to get a young person started in hunting.

“For beginning hunters, there’s nothing easier than cottontails and squirrels. All you need is a 22, and you don’t need any camo, you just need a place to go and sit in the woods,” Bogenschutz says. Rabbit season runs through February 28th, with a daily bag limit of 10 rabbits and a possession limit of 20. Shooting hours are sunrise to sunset.

Hunters looking for places to go rabbit or squirrel hunting should use Iowa’s online hunting atlas at www.iowadnr.gov/hunting.

Frazier and Phillips HR, Reds hand Cards 4th loss in 5 games

September 11th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

CINCINNATI (AP) — Todd Frazier and Brandon Phillips both homered and drove in three runs as the last-place Cincinnati Reds sent the NL Central-leading St. Louis Cardinals to their most-lopsided loss of the season, 11-0 Thursday night. The Cardinals opened their longest road trip of the season — 11 days, 10 games — with their fourth loss in five games.

Reds star Joey Votto doubled and singled, driving in a run and scoring one, a day after his tantrum at home plate following an ejection. Jaime Garcia (8-5) lasted a season-low 4 1-3 innings and gave up six runs. He had been 5-0 in seven starts since losing to the Reds on July 28.

John Lamb (1-3), one of three left-handers acquired from Kansas City for Johnny Cueto in late July, shook off control problems for his first major league win. He walked six, struck out six and gave up three hits in five innings.

 

(Update) Iowa to honor former star Tyler Sash during Iowa St game

September 10th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Iowa will honor former star safety Tyler Sash by switching out one of its “Tigerhawk” decals for Sash’s No. 9 for Saturday’s game at Iowa State. The 27-year-old Sash was found dead Tuesday in his Oskaloosa, Iowa, home, about 3 1/2 years after he won a Super Bowl during his rookie season with the New York Giants.

Foul play isn’t suspected. The Iowa State Medical Examiner’s office said an autopsy conducted Wednesday revealed “no acute trauma” or evidence that he was killed by external force. Sash starred for the Hawkeyes from 2007-10. As a junior in 2009, Sash picked off three Iowa State passes in a 35-3 win in Ames.

A memorial service is set for Friday at the Oskaloosa Community Stadium at the Lacey Complex in Oskaloosa. A private family burial will follow. Bates Funeral Chapel in Oskaloosa is handling arrangements.

AG: U. Iowa track email should have been marked confidential

News, Sports

September 10th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – A mistake by state defense lawyers enabled a plaintiff’s attorneys to release an email suggesting the University of Iowa athletics department discriminated against their client and other male candidates during a coaching search.
A spokesman for the Iowa Attorney General’s Office said it inadvertently failed to mark as confidential the email and thousands of other university documents provided to Michael Scott’s attorneys.

Scott is suing the university for gender bias, contending he was passed over for a job opening on the track and field staff repeatedly because he’s a man. His claims were bolstered last week when his attorneys exclusively gave The Associated Press a copy of the 2013 e-mail in which the head coach told assistants there was a “mandate from the administration to hire a female.”

The cause and manner of his death are being investigated.

The University of Iowa says visitation will be held Thursday at Fellowship Bible Church in Oskaloosa.

Carpenter, Piscotty lead Cardinals past Cubs 4-3

Sports

September 10th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Matt Carpenter tripled and scored two runs and Stephen Piscotty doubled in the winning run Wednesday, leading St. Louis past the Chicago Cubs 4-3 to end the Cardinals’ three-game losing streak. The NL Central leaders scored three times in the eighth inning to avoid their first sweep at home this season and their first against the Cubs since September 2010.

Cubs left-hander Jon Lester left after seven dominant innings. He didn’t allow a hit after the third batter and retired 20 of his final 21 hitters. Carpenter scored after a triple in the first, and his single in the eighth ignited the rally. Piscotty’s double off the center-field wall scored Peter Bourjos and Carpenter. Jonathan Broxton (2-4) got the win and Trevore Rosenthal picked up his 43rd save. Clayton Richard (3-1) took the loss.
