Fewer Iowans buying hunting, fishing licenses

Ag/Outdoor, Sports

August 29th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) – Fewer Iowans are buying hunting and fishing licenses, but state officials say that doesn’t necessarily mean interest in the sports are waning.  Sales of hunting licenses to Iowa residents dropped 13 percent from 2007 to last year, and resident fishing licenses declined about 4 percent during that period. Nationally, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service estimates hunting is up 9 percent and fishing has increased 11 percent.

Joe Larscheid, chief of the Iowa Department of Natural Resources Fisheries Bureau, says that the national numbers are based on interviews. He says fishing remains strong in Iowa and license declines could reflect recent flooding.  DNR spokesman Kevin Baskins says declining pheasant populations hurt hunting license sales. That decline is blamed on grassland losses and recent harsh winters.

Chiefs enduring their usual wretched preseason

Sports

August 29th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs are assured of their ninth straight losing preseason. At 1-2 going into Thursday night’s final tuneup at Green Bay, the Chiefs since 2004 are a woebegone 7-28 in preseason games. They haven’t posted a winning preseason since 2003, when Dick Vermeil’s Chiefs won the Hall of Fame game to finish 3-2. They then tore through the regular season 13-3. Anyone who insists that preseason games are meaningless should take note that Kansas City’s combined 6-26 record of the past eight years was followed by 53 wins and 75 losses in the regular season, one playoff appearance and no postseason wins. Coach Romeo Crennel may use the starters against Green Bay much more than first-teamers normally play in a game that usually belongs to backups and longshots.

Pirates rough up Cardinals in 9-0 win

Sports

August 29th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pedro Alvarez homered twice and drove in four runs, James McDonald scattered two hits over seven innings and the Pittsburgh Pirates beats the St. Louis Cardinals 9-0 on Tuesday night. Alvarez hit a two-run homer in the third to give the Pirates a comfortable lead, added an RBI double in the fourth then hit a 469-foot blast to center in the sixth. He went 4 for 5 as Pittsburgh drew within two games of the Cardinals in the race for the NL’s second wild-card spot. McDonald (12-6) gave up two hits, walked one and struck out six to beat the Cardinals and Jake Westbrook (13-10) for the second time in the last two weeks. The Cardinals played most of the game without catcher Yadier Molina, who suffered neck, back and shoulder injuries following a violent collision at home plate with Pittsburgh second baseman Josh Harrison.

Iowa RB Bullock the latest hope for Hawkeyes

Sports

August 29th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Damon Bullock will step into perhaps the most treacherous position in college football on Saturday when he starts at running back for Iowa. The Hawkeyes just can’t seem to keep its tailbacks on the field. Iowa’s bad luck with backs reached a breaking point in the offseason. Five players expected to compete for carries in 2012 won’t be on the field Saturday when the Hawkeyes face Northern Illinois in Chicago. All that’s left is Bullock, a sophomore who also played receiver in 2011, and a pair of true freshman in Greg Garmon and walk-on Michael Malloy. Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz says Bullock had a good fall camp and that he’s been impressed by Garmon and Malloy.

Chiefs Go with Quinn as Backup Quarterback

Sports

August 28th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Brady Quinn has been picked as the backup quarterback of the Kansas City Chiefs, leaving Ricky Stanzi at No. 3 on the depth chart heading into their preseason finale. Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel told the team of his decision before Monday’s practice. The race to back up Matt Cassel had been one of the few open contests for Kansas City during training camp. Quinn signed as a free agent in the offseason, and Stanzi was No. 3 a year ago. Tight end Kevin Boss missed practice for what Crennel called personal reasons. Defensive backs Jalil Brown, Kendrick Lewis and Brandon Flowers were among numerous players who did not participate because of various injuries.  The Chiefs wrap up their preseason Thursday night at Green Bay.

Chiefs Still Trying to Find Identity in Preseason

Sports

August 28th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs are heading toward their preseason finale Thursday night at Green Bay with what appears to be an identity problem. Jamaal Charles and Peyton Hillis give Kansas City one of the league’s best backfields — a quintessential thunder-and-lightning look. And with the play of Matt Cassel at quarterback one of the biggest question marks entering the regular season, there’s little doubt the Chiefs prefer to be a defensive-minded, ball-control team. That makes the way Friday night’s 44-14 loss to the Seattle Seahawks played out all the more surprising. New offensive coordinator Brian Daboll aired it out 44 times. Even Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel sounded a bit perplexed by the direction the team is headed, and admitted that it needs to figure out quickly what it does well.

Holliday Homers to Lead Cards over Pirates 4-3

Sports

August 28th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

Matt Holliday hit a tiebreaking home run and Kyle Lohse won his eighth consecutive decision, leading the St. Louis Cardinals to a 4-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday night. Holliday led off the sixth inning with his 24th homer, a drive to right field off A.J. Burnett that put St. Louis ahead for good at 3-2. Lohse (14-2) pitched five innings before being lifted following a 34-minute rain delay in the top of the sixth. He allowed two runs and five hits while striking out three and walking none. Lohse has not lost in 13 starts dating to June 15 and raised his career record against Pittsburgh to 9-2. Burnett (15-5) gave up four runs, three earned, and seven hits in 5 2-3 innings with three strikeouts and one walk. He lost at home for just second time this season in 10 decisions and 13 starts.
