IRENE ON OUR DOORSTEP

August 27, 2011

MIAMI (AP) — Weaker but still menacing, Hurricane Irene knocked out power and piers in North Carolina, clobbered Virginia with wind and churned up the coast Saturday to confront cities more accustomed to snowstorms than tropical storms. New York City emptied its streets and subways and waited with an eerie quiet.

Raffetto, Mathewson claim titles at Yo Raymond 5K

August 27, 2011

CUMBERLAND — Prior to Saturday’s race, Louis Raffetto never ran the Yo Raymond Memorial 5K. He just knew it was on an out-and-back course and, after arriving at the Cumberland event, he knew there was a challenging incline at the finish.
Raffetto had a chance to test that quarter-mile stretch from a different perspective shortly after the gun was fired at Camp Ker Anna.
“We just flew down it,” he said. “I definitely wanted to be a little cautious coming back.”

Commentary: Patriots have little to lose acquiring Haynesworth

August 27, 2011

For those who decried the Patriots’ acquisition of Albert Haynesworth last month, repeat after me: No-lose situation.
Sure, the man’s rap sheet is as long as a grocery list, with charges ranging from speeding to sexual assault. Indeed, his on-field transgressions include stomping on the bare head of an opponent. And yes, he definitely would not have been a favorite of the late Myra Kraft, a noted humanitarian who once insisted that the Patriots cut a drafted player because of his checkered past.
Simply put, Haynesworth is not a model human being. That isn’t exactly breaking news.
