July 15, 2010

In Monday's home run derby, Corey Hart led all players with 13 home runs in the first round but failed to hit one in the second, causing his elimination. Hart didn't hit in the second round until an hour and a half after his first-round performance. He seemed visibly fatigued, and he admitted that he didn't feel right in a post-derby interview.

Geneva/Genoa suffers sweep

Team hoping for full roster in regionals

July 15, 2010
Genoa City — The Geneva/Genoa Red Legs are stumbling into the playoff picture. That's because last weekend the boys dropped both games of a doubleheader, 15-7 and 2-0, to Beloit, considered to be one of the top two teams in Region 7 along with Burlington. Once again, the Red Legs fell victim to the numbers game. They were without Jake Hodgeman along with several other top players. However, they have still found a way to possess a 15-9 mark heading into regionals Wednesday, July 21 at Telfaer Field in Beloit, home of the Minnesota Twins Single-A affiliate Beloit Snappers.

This is a historic summer for the National Basketball Association. On July 1, free agency officially kicked off, and mega-stars such as LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, Dirk Nowitzki, Amare Stoudemire (who signed a five-year, $100 million contract with the Knicks Monday) and Carlos Boozer all hit the open market. Not to be outdone, the Milwaukee Bucks have actively joined the mix, signing “B” players Corey Maggette, Chris Douglas-Roberts and Drew Gooden as free agents. Thanks to the expiring contracts of not only has-beens but never-dids Dan Gadzuric and Charlie Bell (sorry, Danny G), the Bucks cleared up $11 million in salary cap space.

Burlington native Romo addresses Packers, Rodgers
Wedig personally invited for first time
July 01, 2010
Burlington — Dallas Cowboys starting quarterback Tony Romo understands the importance of teaching young kids the right way to play football. On June 23 and 24, he was back at Burlington High School, his alma mater, for his annual football camp. And during a June 23 press conference, he made it clear what his visits back home are all about.“Football can be hard for a young kid,” he said. “They need to learn fundamentals first and foremost. They need to be taught in broad strokes. You don’t want to say something specific and be wrong. Once you see a kid is talented, then delve into the technical side. I like to teach the older kids about leadership and younger kids that their parents are the most important people in their lives.”
