“Outstanding service. They were extremely careful delivering the extra large container into our driveway.” -- A. L. GARNER
Davis as he made the rounds. Then everyone's attention turned to the trash can. Sophomore defensive back Trent Taylor grabbed the can and walked to the field. Taylor held it high in the air, beating it and nodding his head as the team created a lane for Davis' double clutch dunk attempt. Unfortunately, Davis was stuffed by the rim. But that didn't take away from the takeaway. "The trash can, it's like us having our own little swag thing, you feel me?" Davis said after practice. "It's becoming a religion. You gotta get turnovers every day. It helps us create great habits."Each day, the coaching staff sets a goal for the defense with a certain number of turnovers to record. When the defense meets the goal, practices look like a slam dunk contest. When the defense doesn't, they make up for it in post-practice conditioning. Creating turnovers will go a long way toward improving a defense that allowed 47 points per game last season, the most points allowed by an FCS team. The players are buying in."We got a lot of playmakers," Davis said. "A lot of people fly around the ball, and we've got a lot of attitude on defense. We don't take anything for granted. We wanna win."The trash can will continue to be an active member of the Austin Peay defense. The team is already planning on bringing the can on road trips and it'll be on the sidelines of Fortera Stadium this fall, pushing the defense to reach new heights. "I think we have the potential to be very good, but we still gotta go out and execute," Cooper said. "It's on them how good they're actually going to be. We'... (Clarksville Leaf Chronicle)

Bishop led off for the Travs with a single, then shortstop Chris Mariscal singled to right to move Bishop to second. Next up, right fielder Chuck Taylor singled to center to load the bases with no outs.Midland pitching coach Don Schulze walked to the mound to talk to right-handed starter Heath Fillmyer. He offered a simple message."I just told him, 'You have good stuff. Just keep the ball down there, and you're just one pitch away,' " Schulze said. "I just want to make sure they're calm and they're composed and ready to challenge the next hitter. He did a great job."Arkansas' opportunity turned to nothing after first baseman Ryan Casteel popped up to catcher Sean Murphy, designated hitter Marcus Littlewood struck out, and third baseman Seth Mejias-Brean flied out to left fielder Tyler Ramirez to end the inning without a run and a 1-0 deficit."We know what we have to do," Taylor said. "We have to execute in situations like that, and when we don't, it's frustrating. You know, ain't nobody trying to get out, but it's been like that all year. We just can't seem to execute with people on base. It's why we lose when we lose, and we're better than that."Taylor, who hit .386 through May, batted a combined .197 in June and July. In his past nine games, he has hit .324."In baseball, sometimes you ride that roller coaster," he sai... (Arkansas Online)

Monday seeking treatment for addiction. On average, about 12 to 16 people per day in Kensington seek treatment, said Alicia Taylor, spokeswoman for the city’s office of Health and Human Services.New fencing already had been installed on seven bridges that cross the tracks, according to Managing Director Michael DiBerardinis. Another 1½ miles of 6-foot fencing will be installed by Conrail on the sides of the tracks as contractors continue their cleaning efforts, expected to be completed in about 30 days.“Today we are taking a big step in what will be a long journey,” DiBerardinis said.[embedded content] Officials from Conrail, the Mayor’s Office, the Police Department, and elected officials including Quiñones-Sánchez and State Rep. Angel Cruz (D., Phila.) all spoke at a news conference in the middle of the newly established outreach hub at Second Street and Indiana Avenue.“Never have I seen such a coordinated effort to make things happen,” said Quiñones-Sánchez.Some in the area worry, however, that once the cleanup is finished, overdose fatalities in the area actually could increase as users shoot up in abandoned houses with no one watching out for them.Jose Benitez, executive director of Prevention Point Philadelphia, the health-care provider and needle-exchange agency that has worked with the community for years, said last week that day visitors to the camps have been dispersing into the neighborhood, using drugs in vacant homes, parks, and anywhere they can find shade.Lauren Hitt, spokeswoman for Mayor Kenney, said that the city’s outreach workers “are committed to going wherever the need is — including into abandoned houses.”Inspector Ray Convery, a police commander who oversees the area including the tracks, also said that getting users above-ground would make it easier for officers to find users in need of help. The tracks had become so covered in trash and vegetation, he said, it had become difficult and dangerous for law enforcement to patrol and monitor the area.Monday was the contractual deadline to which Philadelphia and railway officials agreed last month to begin the process.img class="alignnone wp-image-93531" src="http://media.philly...
