Proposed fishing regulations the topic of 4 public meetings in IA

Ag/Outdoor, News, Sports

August 13th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources has scheduled four public meetings to discuss proposed changes to the state fishing regulations for 2015. One of the hearings will take place 6:30-p.m. Sept. 2nd, at the Lewis and Clark State Park Visitor Center, (21914 Park Loop) in Onawa.

The DNR is proposing a series of rule changes to make the regulations easier to understand, to protect lake improvements, remove duplicate language in the Iowa code and to enhance fishing opportunities.

The proposals also include: allowing the DNR to manage walleye populations in the same manner as it does bass by posting length limit signs at lakes; removing hand fishing as a legal means of take for all rough fish; establishing a paddlefish season on the Missouri and Big Sioux rivers; and removing duplicate trotline or throw line language in the Iowa Administrative code.

At the hearing, persons will be asked to give their names and address for the record and to confine their remarks to the content of the proposed amendments. Any persons who intend to attend the hearing and have special requirements, such as those related to hearing or mobility impairments, should contact the DNR and request specific accommodations.

Any person may submit written suggestions or comments on the proposed amendment through Sept. 4, 2014. Written materials should be addressed to Martin Konrad, Iowa Department of Natural Resources, 502 East Ninth Street, Des Moines, Iowa 50319-0034, by fax at 515-281-8895 or by email to martin.konrad@dnr.iowa.gov.

Chiefs’ Eric Berry leaves practice with heel pain

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) — Pro Bowl safety Eric Berry left the Chiefs’ practice for the second time this training camp on Tuesday as he continues to be bothered by tendinitis in his right heel. Berry missed a few days of practice last week with the heel injury. He eventually returned to workouts but did not play in the Chiefs’ preseason opener against Cincinnati.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid said that the team will continue to monitor Berry and rest him as needed, though it’s unclear when he’ll return. Kansas City plays at Carolina on Sunday. Defensive end Mike Catapano also left practice with the same illness that has sidelined him for much of training camp. Kicker Ryan Succop remained out with groin inflammation.

Chiefs finally building up depth at wide receiver

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) — The past few years in Kansas City, it’s been Dwayne Bowe and everyone else at wide receiver. Bowe is the unquestionable leader of the group, but Junior Hemingway also has emerged as a big, reliable slot target. De’Anthony Thomas already has proven to be an electrifying playmaker, whether the rookie’s taking a handoff or splitting out wide. And a group that includes Donnie Avery, Kyle Williams, A.J. Jenkins and Frankie Hammond Jr. has all had moments of brilliance.

While he put some of the best numbers of his career last year, many of those yards came on dump-offs and short passes that running back Jamaal Charles turned into big plays. Smith hardly had the same kind of big, rangy targets such as Michael Crabtree that he had in San Francisco.

Marlins beat Wainwright and Cardinals, 3-0

Sports

August 13th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

MIAMI (AP) — Jarred Cosart pitched seven innings in a duel with Adam Wainwright to earn his first victory for the Miami Marlins, who beat the St. Louis Cardinals 3-0 Tuesday. Cosart allowed three hits and one walk to win for the first time since July 7. The victory came in his second start for Miami after being acquired from Houston in a trade for prospects.

He’s 1-1 with Miami and 10-7 overall this year. Wainwright, making his first start against the Marlins since 2010, missed a chance to became the first 15-game winner in the majors. He went seven innings and allowed three runs, with two coming on a home run off the foul pole by Donovan Solano — only the sixth homer allowed by the Cardinals’ ace.

Chiefs’ Charles relishes chance to lay the lumber

Sports

August 12th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) — Jamaal Charles is known for his speed and skill. He’d like to be known for his ability to lay the lumber, too. The Chiefs’ Pro Bowl running back relishes the chance to drop a blitzing safety or linebacker, even though there are no fantasy points at stake for a block. He considers it one of the biggest reasons why he’s become one of the few every-down running backs in the league.

In fact, Charles has even coined his own “Jamaal Charles rule,” whereby he promises to keep his defender out of his quarterback’s face for 3 seconds. After that, they’re on their own. Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson said Monday that Charles has become a better blocker over the last year, and that’s allowed him to take the next step toward greatness.

Stanton powers Marlins past Cardinals in 6-5 win

Sports

August 12th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

MIAMI (AP) — Giancarlo Stanton hit two home runs and made a spectacular diving catch in right field to help the Miami Marlins beat the St. Louis Cardinals 6-5 on Monday night. Stanton’s 13th multi-homer game established a franchise career record and he tied Hanley Ramirez for second place on the club’s all-time home run list with 148. Stanton hit a two-run homer in the first and a solo shot in the third to give him 31 on the season. Marlins starter Tom Koehler (8-9) allowed three runs and eight hits in five innings.

Steve Cishek escaped the ninth to record his 30th save in 33 chances. With two outs, Cishek allowed an RBI triple by Kolten Wong and an RBI single by Matt Holliday allowing the Cardinals to pull within 6-5. Cishek struck out Matt Adams to end the game.

Jon Jay hit a two-run home run, Holliday had four hits, and Shelby Miller (8-9) allowed five runs in five innings for the Cardinals, who have lost three of four.

Cardinals beat Orioles 8-3 to avoid sweep

Sports

August 10th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

BALTIMORE (AP) — Rookie Kolten Wong had four hits and scored twice, Peter Bourjos homered and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Baltimore Orioles 8-3 Sunday to avoid a three-game sweep. After allowing nine home runs in losing the first two games of the series by a collective 22-5 score, the Cardinals amassed a season-high 17 hits — 14 of them singles.

Bourjos capped the barrage with a three-run drive in the ninth off Zach Britton, ending the left-hander’s run of 27 straight scoreless appearances at home. Wong’s four hits, all of them singles, matched a career high and lifted his batting average 11 points to .253.

Iowa State looks to plug holes at defensive line

Sports

August 10th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State looked relatively set at defensive line at the end of last season. It all fell apart in the offseason. Nose guard Brandon Jensen quit the team with a year of eligibility left, and starting tackle Rodney Coe was dismissed for violating team rules. Fellow tackle David Irving was kicked off the team after photos of him holding an uprooted stop sign in the midst of a campus-wide disturbance emerged on social media.

The Cyclones know they’ll need to find some stability along that line to have any shot at besting last year’s 3-9 record. Jensen’s return following an offseason chat with coach Paul Rhoads should help the Cyclones compensate for losing Coe and Irving.

Chiefs’ Kelce finally shows glimpse of potential

Sports

August 10th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) — As tight end Travis Kelce walked down the hill and onto the practice fields at Missouri Western, the crowd that turned up at sunrise for Saturday’s practice gave him a round of applause.

After spending all of last season on injured reserve and dealing with a knee injury that many though could jeopardize his playing career, Kelce finally showed a glimpse of his potential in the Chiefs’ preseason opener. The athletic Kelce got loose over the middle, hauled in a pass and then out-ran the entire Bengals secondary on what turned into a 69-yard touchdown reception.

It was exactly the kind of play the Chiefs envisioned Kelce making when he was chosen in the third round out of Cincinnati. And it was why the fans Saturday were cheering him on.
