May 7th, 2016 by Chris Parks

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Jung Ho Kang homered twice and Francisco Liriano continued his dominance at Busch Stadium as the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the St. Louis Cardinals 4-2 on Friday night.

Kang, who was activated from the disabled list before the game, ripped the first pitch he saw from Tyler Lyons into the right field bullpen for a two-run homer to give the Pirates a 3-0 lead in the sixth. Kang followed with a 427-foot homer into the upper deck in left in the eighth.

Liriano (3-1) improved to 4-0 with a 2.07 ERA in six career starts at Busch Stadium. Liriano fanned 10 through seven innings for his 24th career double-digit strikeout performance of his career.

Mark Melancon got his eighth save for Pittsburgh, who won its fifth straight road game and improved to 4-0 against the Cardinals this season.

Courtside seats at Iowa State games are a perk for lawmakers

News, Sports

May 6th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

Tickets to Iowa State men’s basketball games were hard to land for fans this year but easier for one group: legislators being entertained by University President Steven Leath. An Associated Press review shows 10 lawmakers accepted invitations to sit with Leath courtside at Hilton Coliseum, including House Speaker Linda Upmeyer and education appropriations subcommittee chairman Cecil Dolecheck.

While legislators paid a face value ranging from $25 to $50, comparable seats are open only to donors or cost far more through brokers. Lawmakers avoided fees of $4 to $6 apiece assessed on tickets bought by phone and online, the way most fans acquire them. They could also access the in-stadium sports bar usually open only to donors, where soda and appetizers are free.

Lawmakers deny the arrangement violates the gift law.

(Update) — Adams County Sheriff’s Dept. looks into alleged deputy impersonator incident


May 6th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

In an update to our earlier report, officials with the Adams County Sheriff’s Office said today (Friday), that a person who allegedly posed as a Sheriff’s Deputy Thursday afternoon, has been identified, and “A thorough investigation is underway. The community is no longer in danger from this individual.” The Sheriff’s Office cautioned parents however, to “Please educate your children how to handle strangers approaching them. Proper training and preparation can help keep our children safe!”

Earlier, authorities had said a middle-aged male described as being approximately 5’8″ tall, heavyset with short dark brown hair and going bald approached a group of juveniles between 4:00 and 4:15 PM near the high school in Corning.

The man allegedly identified himself as a sheriff’s deputy and informed the group he was looking for a fight in progress and he was taking them to jail. The individual was driving a late 90’s or early 2000’s Chevrolet or Ford pickup black and red with a silver stripe down both sides.

The group of juveniles left the scene and the man who spoke with them drove off.
