Bicyclists Roll Along in Ride of Silence in Several Iowa Cities Tonight

News, Sports

May 16th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

Hundreds of bicyclists in at least a half-dozen Iowa cities will gather and ride their two-wheelers in a slow line tonight (Wednesday) as part of the Ride of Silence. Scott Sumpter, organizer of the Des Moines ride and founder of BikeIowa.com, says it’s a solemn tribute. “The ride exists so we can ride in honor and pay respect to those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roadways,” Sumpter says. Since May of last year, five bicyclists have died on Iowa’s roads and 16 were injured. Those 21 names will be added to a list of more than 160 people who’ve been killed or injured while biking in Iowa in recent years. He says it’s an unfortunate fact that cyclists aren’t always respected by careless motorists.

“Every year, we see bicycling grow but we also see a few people get hit and killed,” Sumpter says. “We’re out there to raise awareness that the cyclists have the legal right to ride the roads.” Rides of Silence are being held in more than 300 American cities tonight and in 18 other countries. Sumpter says the bike riders will only be rolling along at maybe 10 or 12 miles an hour, and in many cities, with a police escort. “Every ride is supposed to start at 7 PM,” Sumpter says. “It’s just a silent procession, a really slow ride. It’s almost like a funeral-like procession.” Rides are being held in cities including: Ames, Cedar Falls, Des Moines, Mason City, Woodward and in the Omaha suburb of Bellevue, Nebraska. Most of the rides will only go between four and ten miles in distance. Learn more at: www.rideofsilence.org

May 15th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Yadier Molina hit an RBI single off Cubs closer Rafael Dolis with two outs in the ninth inning and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Chicago Cubs 7-6 Tuesday, avoiding a sweep and an 0-5 homestand. Alfonso Soriano, who hit 26 home runs last year, tied it for the Cubs with his first of the season leading off the ninth against Jason Motte (2-1). Matt Carpenter’s second homer in four games off James Russell had put the Cardinals up in the eighth. The Cubs scored three runs in the first, and there were later four ties before the Cardinals won.

Chiefs Owner Talks About First and Next 50 Years

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Kansas City Chiefs owner Clark Hunt says his team is celebrating its 50th anniversary in the city this year and plans to stick around for another five decades. Hunt joined Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli and head coach Romeo Crennel on Tuesday to announce several activities planned to mark the anniversary. Among them are charitable functions and a trip to Joplin to help the city rebuild from the deadly May 2011 tornado. The team also honored 10 Chiefs fans who have been season ticket holders since the team moved from Dallas 50 years ago. Hunt says he’s excited about the upcoming season after injuries sidelined several key players last year, and that his goal remains to bring a Super Bowl championship to Kansas City.

Dempster Still Winless But Cubs Beat Cardinals 6-4

Sports

May 15th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Alfonso Soriano singled in the go-ahead run in the eighth inning and the Chicago Cubs sent the St. Louis Cardinals to their fourth straight loss at home with a 6-4 victory on Monday night. Bryan LaHair had three hits for the Cubs, including a two-run homer to break a 1-for-14 slump. Chicago’s late rally wasn’t enough to make a winner of starter Ryan Dempster, whose winless streak reached 15 starts dating to last August. Shawn Camp (2-1) allowed one hit in two innings of work and Rafael Dolis worked the ninth for his fourth save in six chances. Jake Westbrook became the latest Cardinal starter who couldn’t pitch deep into the game, allowing four runs on 11 hits in five innings. Of the other four pitchers during this run through the St. Louis rotation, only rookie Lance Lynn lasted six innings. Mitchell Boggs (0-1) took the loss.
