Ponce gets justice: Ponce Inlet man gets year sentence for killing Ponce the dog

  Ponce gets justice: Ponce Inlet man gets year sentence for killing Ponce the dog A man who beat his 9-month-old puppy to death in Ponce Inlet in 2017 has been sentenced to a year in prison. Ponce, a 9-month-old Labrador puppy, was found in April 2017 not breathing and leaning against a fence and the side of Travis Archer’s home.

In police body camera video, an officer can be heard saying to Archer, “That dog is practically dead,” to which Archer replied, “He bit me.”Prosecutors played the body camera video during the sentencing on Wednesday.

Almost everybody dreams of being well known, and having the luxurious lifestyle that goes along with it. However, I have never felt that being famous is necessarily a good thing. First of all, there are many famous people in the world who are well-known but certainly do not lead rich, glamorous lives.

COMPTON, Calif. — A five ERA will bring you to places, man. A five ERA kicks and spits and leaves jagged marks in places you didn’t even know existed. A five ERA finds you laying rage on top of helplessness on top of hesitation, finds you throwing straight through your shoulder while giving chase to shadows, finds you in that place and looking for footprints that match your shoe size, wondering how you got there.

Chris Archer is working on that.

He’d tied back his dreadlocks with a headband. He wore a gray Pittsburgh Pirates jersey, No. 24. Someone handed him a microphone.

He looked up Saturday afternoon into bleachers spattered by a morning rain, into the faces of little boys and girls in Dodgers caps and Angels shorts and Raiders shirts, and he told them that’s how baseball goes sometimes. That’s how life goes.

A bad season, he said, is like that rain this morning. He needed to grow, he said. So the clouds came and the thunder rumbled and what came in sheets was that five ERA, that bum shoulder and that season that ended in August.

“It’s all about how you respond to things,” he told children whose feet dangled a foot above the floor, whose parents probably knew a thing or two themselves about five ERAs.

Now, he told them, he wanted them to get out on that field, all 250 of them, and run and laugh and swing hard, and he wanted them to learn one thing. Any one thing, it didn’t matter.

Browns Release DE Chris Smith Months After He Lost Girlfriend in Car Accident

  Browns Release DE Chris Smith Months After He Lost Girlfriend in Car Accident The Cleveland Browns made an unexpected roster cut on Tuesday morning, and it comes from a position where they lack depth, thanks to the indefinite suspension of Myles Garrett. Per Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com, the team has released defensive end Chris Smith just a few days after he was a healthy scratch for Sunday's 20-13 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. As of this writing, there has been no follow-up word on a corresponding move by the Browns to add a player to their 53-man roster.

“One,” he said. “Whatever it is.”

He smiled and waved them on. The bleachers cleared to the sound of tiny Keds and Cons and Nikes pattering and squeaking, boys and girls headed toward a green field accessorized with colorful bats and new balls. It would be a glorious day at Major League Baseball’s Youth Academy here, at a Play Ball event put to a DJ’s music and a sandlot’s joy.

Archer turned 31 in September. He’d done All-Star seasons, 19-loss seasons, 250-strikeout seasons, 200-inning seasons and now a 5.19-ERA season. Little ballplayers rushed past him in their wobbly caps and billowing T-shirts and floppy ponytails to, had they been listening, had it made any sense to them at all, learn their second thing that morning, after what to do when the five ERA comes.

Darrell Miller, director of the Compton academy and former big-league catcher, stood at a chain-link gate and greeted families as they arrived. If they hadn’t pre-registered, he pointed them to the right place. If they wondered what this was all about, he told them what it was all about, starting with education and citizenship and baseball and softball, ending with what it would cost them: “The price is zero,” he said. “Which is free.”

10 MLB players who could use a change of scenery

  10 MLB players who could use a change of scenery The MLB offseason brings many new opportunities for players who are traded to new teams. These 10 players would likely benefit from such a move. Chris Archer, SP, Pirates The Pirates traded three top prospects to Tampa Bay for Archer in 2018, putting the pressure on the right-hander to perform. He hasn't delivered, with the worst season of his career in 2019 that included multiple IL stints and a 5.19 ERA. Pittsburgh will have a new coaching staff next season, but Archer might be better off elsewhere given the rebuilding Pirates roster.Orlando Arcia, SS, BrewersA former top prospect, Arcia has struggled to regain the form he showed in 2017.

Talk about how the mission speaks to you, and then tie those things back to the description and your unique skill set .” What you should say: A better answer might be, “I do not have a set figure in mind as I do not know enough about For example , “As you can see from my background, I am someone

Archer (shoulder) will have his .25 million option picked up for the 2020 season, Nubyjas Wilborn of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. The move was widely expected despite Archer 's struggles in his injury-plagued 2019 season, as he posted a 5 .19 ERA with a 143:55 K:BB over 119.2 innings.

He nodded at the lanky figure in the Pirates road grays.

“It validates what we’re trying to do here in the inner city,” he said. “That influence is priceless. He’s what you want to be. That’s what it looks like and sounds like and feels like.”

If that sounds like a lot, if that sounds like a lot more than just baseball, then sure, it is. Archer has done these events regularly for years, since the minor leagues even, scheduling days around the baseball calendar, dropping in on a whim, this time driving across town on a dreary Saturday morning. The kids who didn’t look and sound a little like him in Raleigh or Tampa or Cleveland or L.A., they looked and sounded a lot like him here. Some days he was the All Star, whatever cred that brought. Other days, hey, us five-ERAers gotta stick together, ya know? Every day, he looked them in the eye so they knew they’d been seen and heard, that they mattered to whatever world is out there. He’d take every picture, sign every T-shirt, shake hands with every mom and every dad, because it was easy and he liked it, because who wouldn’t like this mess of kids running every direction, balls flying, hearts bursting?

On Archer , everyone is so flippant that whatever emotional turn the show might take, it always seems to respond with a simple, “so what?”. When the apparent love of Archer ’s life is killed and he spirals into a depressed funk, it’s difficult to relate to him on any kind of realistic level.

“Their eyes open … ,” Archer said. He grinned to say, that’s it, that’s the whole point. Their eyes open.

He is in Southern California for the offseason, living a couple miles from the beach, trekking north to Westlake Village to heal — and better understand — his body. On the advice of St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Jack Flaherty, he’s become a regular at Live Athletics, a facility run by Zach Ray, a doctor of physical therapy. Archer finished his worst season on the disabled list with a sore pitching shoulder. Also, and perhaps more daunting, he was on the disabled list at the end of his worst season, no way to fix it.

So, he wondered, where had this come from? What, exactly, had he been fighting since the trade to Pittsburgh? Across 33 starts, what amounts to a full season, he was 6-12 with a 4.92 ERA. What was he trying to prove? And to whom?

“Dealing with the past season,” he said, “I had to re-evaluate all of that. I had to look inward.”

His shoulder healed. He is throwing again, easy. His head is clearer. The disaster that was 2019, the places a five ERA took him, those could not be misspent.

“I already know that I’m great,” he said. “Now it’s getting back to being comfortable being me and doing what I do. I don’t feel like I have to prove myself to anybody. I’m more comfortable in my skin than I’ve ever been.”

Craigslist finally get official mobile app after being founded 24 years ago

  Craigslist finally get official mobile app after being founded 24 years ago Craigslist has at long last launched an official mobile application of its online classifieds platform, originally founded over two decades ago. Despite Craigslist setting the standard of online product and services exchange since it was founded in 1995, the website had never officially launched a complementary mobile application despite dramatic growth in smartphone internet use over the last 10 years. However, this week the company decided that to take the better-late-than-never approach. On Wednesday, Craigslist launched an official iOS application for the first time in its history.

Rumors of a Chris Archer trade are popping up, with the Dodgers as a popular destination. That 's all the more likely given the bad news the Dodgers got on Tuesday, when they learned that Clayton Kershaw will be sidelined indefinitely with a back injury and could be facing season-ending surgery.

The phrase "two plus two equals five " ("2 + 2 = 5 ") is a slogan used in literature and other media, most notably the 1949 dystopian novel 1984 by George Orwell.

He stood Saturday morning in the middle of it all, all of them, all of him, beneath rain clouds to which he was indifferent.

“I just feel free,” he said. “I feel I’m closer to them” — he waved his arms at the blur of small, teetering, untethered humans — “and I am my old essence. I feel that free and unjudged and comfortable. I know what that feels like now.”

Then he excused himself. All the five-ERAers were going to have a dance contest. He couldn’t miss that.
