1  Discussion / Sports Forum / ALBANY STATE NOTEBOOK: Rams continue to work on fundamentals on: Yesterday at 06:39:59 PM
With opener still a week away, Albany State continues to work on little things

ALBANY — As the third week of practice concludes for the Albany State University football team, coach Mike White doesn’t think it’s time for his team to begin hitting someone else.

While the team is still riding its late-season momentum from last year, White doesn’t want his team to repeat how it started last year when the team opened the season 1-4 before rattling off five straight wins and the SIAC championship.

“We’re coming along,” White said. “We’ve still got a ways to go, but we’re slowly making progress.”

White has repeatedly said his goal is to make sure the younger players fit in with the returning players. The Rams open the 2014 season on Sept. 6 at national power Valdosta State.

“I just thought it took us too many games last year to come together as a group and find our weaknesses and strengths as a team,” White said. “It took us probably until midseason last year before we started playing better. I’m just hoping we can get it together before we face our first opponent.”

Before Albany State tackles Valdosta State next week, White and his coaching staff continue to work on fundamentals and developing players, one of the bigger reasons he’s not in a hurry for the games to start.

“We’re still trying to learn what we’re doing,” he said. “We’re still trying to make sure we are where we’re supposed to be in our coverages and our blocking assignments. Right now with so many new guys, we’re still in more of an alignment-assignment type of thing. We’re in more of a teaching mode right now.”

ATKINS READY TO GO: Senior wide receiver and former Mitchell County standout Jessie Atkins missed some earlier practices with nagging injuries. However, the 5-10, 180-pounder was back catching passes from quarterback Frank Rivers on Tuesday.

“Jessie, he’s had quite a few (injuries) over his career here,” White said. “But he is our top receiver and a very good leader. He’s done everything we’ve asked him to do here. He played hurt here a lot last year and really came through in a lot of the big games. I’m looking forward to him having a good year.”

Atkins was second in the SIAC in receiving last season with 47 catches for 646 yards and eight touchdowns.

PRACTICE SCHEDULE: White said the Rams will practice each afternoon from 3-5 p.m. the rest of the week, then hold a pair of practices on Saturday. They will hold a walk-through Saturday morning with a regular practice in the afternoon.

The Rams will begin their “game-week” practices on Sunday.

PRESEASON POLLS: When the Rams meet Valdosta State in the opener next weekend at Bazemore-Hyder Stadium in Valdosta, it will mark the first time in recent memory that neither team will begin the season ranked.

Both teams received votes in the recently released American Football Coaches Association Division II poll – VSU received 59 votes, while Albany State garnered 32.

The Navy has decided to separate Hospital Corpsman 2nd Class (SW/AW) Jessica Sims, a 12-year sailor, for failing to obey an order to cut off her natural hairstyle, according to a Wednesday statement from the chief of naval personnel's office.


Navy officials have decided to separate a 12-year African-American sailor for failing to obey an order to cut off her natural hairstyle.

Hospital Corpsman 2nd Class (SW/AW) Jessica Sims confirmed to Navy Times that she will be honorably discharged Friday, after refusing to trim her locks, which she had worn most of her time in the Navy. After a delay on her discharge, officials ruled that Sims’ locks were out of regs and that her bun was too bulky to be worn with a gas mask.

“For the past couple weeks, not knowing what the Navy was going to do, if they were going to move forward with the discharge or keep me in, had me in a little limbo,” Sims said in a phone interview Wednesday. “In the back of my head I knew that they weren’t going to change, so it was more of just waiting for the date.”

Chief of Naval Personnel spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Chris Servello said Sims will be discharged for disobeying a lawful order. Her chain of command at Recruit Training Command Great Lakes, Illinois, ordered her to get her hair within regs earlier this year, soon after she reported in April.

Unfortunate my arse....that's gonna cost them dearly....

Probably not since they had a legal warrant. shrug  I doubt if they will be able to sue the judge/court.

They had a legal warrant to search the house next door. Not to bust into this lady's home, put a gun to her head and handcuff her nephew without a real reason.  Oops, sorry wrong house. Seem to me she has a legal right to sue if she wants. This woman(and her son) could be traumatized for life.

Laretta McCaskill told WCTV that she woke up at 5 a.m. Wednesday morning to a gun pointed at her head and her 16-year-old nephew in handcuffs.

“I just kept hearing something, like a loud noise. I felt as if I was just dreaming,” said mother Laretta McCaskill. “Then, once I woke up, I’d seen a flashing light and a gun pointed to my head, just cops yelling, ‘hold your hands up, hold your hands up! Put your hands up!’”

The Madison County, Florida Sheriff’s Office knocked down McCaskill’s door after being issued a search warrant. The nephew, Terrance Coleman, said the cops came into his room and told him to “Turn around, turn around, turn around,” he said. “And put my hands behind my back. So, he had snatched me off the bed and put me in the living room. So, I came in here and there were guns pointed and me and my cousin. I just feel like they had misplaced me with somebody else.” It turns out the warrant was a mistake. It should have been issued for a mobile home adjacent to McCaskill’s.

“The warrant was obtained for that residence in error. It was a very unfortunate event,” said Chief Deputy Epp Richardson. “Investigators, reviewing the video from the previous transactions that had been occurring over previous months, identified the video by mistake as being the wrong mobile home. It should’ve been the mobile home that was adjacent to it.”

According to officials, Tommy Turner was the man they were looking for, and was subsequently arrested Wednesday night.

Woman caught allegedly having sex with dog, then poisons roommates

A woman in Albuquerque was arrested after she poisoned her roommates’ food and drinks.

The reason why she poisoned them is even more disturbing.

Police allege Shari Walters, 53, was caught by a female roommate having sex with the roommate’s dog, Spike.

Walters boasted that this was not the first time she had had sexual relations with the roommate’s dogs.

When the male roommate, who was also Walter's boyfriend, found out that Walters confessed to having sex with the dogs, he promptly ended their relationship, KOAT reports.

Walters told police that she sought revenge for the relationship breakup by poisoning both of her roommates. According to the report, Walters used rubbing alcohol and toilet bowl cleaner to poison the food.

The roommates are being medically treated and are expected to fully recover.

The dogs were examined by a local veterinarian, who stated they suffered minor injuries.

Walters is being held in the Bernalillo County Jail. According to the KOAT report, she is charged with aggravated battery, cruelty or extreme cruelty to animals and assault with intent to commit a violent felony.

11  Discussion / Sports Forum / Westover, Lee County game on ESPNU moved to 9 a.m. this Sat because of the heat on: August 21, 2014, 09:09:43 PM
LEESBURG — Tailgaters will be eating sausage, eggs and biscuits instead of hot dogs and hamburgers on Saturday when Westover High School opens its 2014 football season at Lee County.

That’s because the anticipated game, which will air live on ESPNU, has been moved to 9 a.m. Both schools announced the change Thursday morning because of heat-related concerns.

Officials were concerned that by the time Saturday’s game, which was originally scheduled to kick off at 1 p.m., started, the temperature would be unsafe for the two teams. The National Weather Service is forecasting a high of 101 degrees, making it one of the hottest days of the year.

Representatives from both schools and ESPN agreed to move the game up four hours from its original start. It will still be televised live, then replayed at 1 p.m.

“Safety needs to be the first and foremost concern,” Lee County football coach Dean Fabrizio said. “When the temperature gets over 100 degrees, it’s not smart to play the game. I think this is a good thing for the kids.”

The game is one of seven that will air on the ESPN family of networks this weekend and is part of the 2014 High School Football Kickoff. Two games will be played tonight starting at 6 p.m. The first game features a pair of South Carolina powers – Byrnes and Northwestern.

Westover and Lee will be the first of five games on Saturday. Buford will join the pair and represent Georgia with a 9 p.m. kickoff on ESPN2 against Trinity Christian (Fla.).

It will also be an opportunity for Lee County to show off its recent stadium improvements, which features artificial stadium turf and a new video board screen.

“This is a win-win for everyone involved,” Westover principal William Chunn said. “I had the opportunity to see the new Lee County field, and it’s a beautiful facility. This will be a great game and a great day for Lee County and Westover.”

It remains to be seen how the time change will affect game attendance. High school football fans are unaccustomed to games that start before noon, but with the high temperatures that have invaded Southwest Georgia, the argument could be viewed in a variety of ways.

“I think that depends on how you look at it,” Fabrizio said. “It’s a lot more comfortable at 9 or 10 in the morning rather than 1 or 2 in the afternoon. More people may want to come now.”

Westover coach Octavia Jones added, “Either way, it’s still going to be hot.”

Fabrizio commended both schools and ESPN for making the changes, two days before the kickoff.

“The kids safety needs to be top priority,” he said.

This is basically the same thing they did when raising money for George Zimmerman. They did it nationally online.
