Manning Drama in Past, Cassel Focuses on Future


April 25th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Matt Cassel doesn’t believe that the Kansas City Chiefs went behind his back when they pursued Peyton Manning during the offseason. In fact, he appreciates them being open with him. The veteran quarterback was quick to acknowledge that Manning is one of the best to ever play the game. Manning ultimately ended up with AFC West rival Denver, where he’ll play the Chiefs twice a year in the regular season. And that means Cassel is back in control of the Chiefs, a position that he never really lost. General manager Scott Pioli said he’s confident that Cassel can lead the Chiefs back to the playoffs. That’s what he did two years ago, before a tough 2011 season cut short by injuries.

Soriano Lifts Cubs Past Cardinals 3-2


April 25th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

CHICAGO (AP) — Alfonso Soriano hit a game-ending RBI single in the 10th inning and the Chicago Cubs beat St. Louis 3-2 on Tuesday night, ending the Cardinals’ run of 13 consecutive winning series. Tony Campana sparked the winning rally with a one-out single off Fernando Salas (0-1). Campana then stole second in a close call that led to the first ejection for Cardinals manager Mike Matheny. After Starlin Castro struck out, Bryan LaHair was walked intentionally before Soriano hit a full-count pitch off second baseman Tyler Greene and into the outfield. Campana scored easily to give the Cubs their second consecutive dramatic victory against the Cardinals.  James Russell (1-0) pitched a scoreless inning to get the win.

The Trevor Frederickson Memorial Fund is preparing for the 4th Annual T-Fred Memorial Golf Tournament to be held Saturday, August 11, at the Nishna Hills Golf Course. While organizers say their mailing won’t go out until early June, they do have t-shirts available for sale now. The royal blue and silver t-shirts are $12 each and feature this year’s saying “Laid a lot of memories down, like tattoos on this town”. Melanie Petty, Fund representative, says “The saying is taken from Jason Aldean’s song, “Tattoos on This Town.’ The chorus of that song not only fits how Trevor lived but also what the Fund hopes to do in his memory.

Petty says the Fund’s logo is the tribal tattoo Trevor had designed of his name, making the saying even more appropriate.”  

(Here is the chorus to “Tattos on this town”: “It sure left its mark on us, We sure left our mark on it, We let the world know we were here, With everything we did, We laid a lot of memories down, Like tattoos on this town”)

To date, proceeds from the Annual T-Fred Tournament have funded over $35,000 in academic scholarships and donations to a variety of groups and organizations.  For information about the upcoming tournament or to order a t-shirt, contact Melanie Petty at 712-249-3696 or melaniepetty05@hotmail.com. Updates on the Fund’s activities can be found on KJAN, or by following the Trevor Frederickson Memorial Fund on Facebook.
