    The Associated Press
    NEW YORK — One by one, for three weeks already, players accompanied by their lawyers have been summoned to interviews as part of baseball’s latest investigation into performance-enhancing drugs — and the process is a long way from finished.
    Some pretty big names, led by Alex Rodriguez, could be on the hot seat.
    A-Rod, Ryan Braun, Nelson Cruz, Melky Cabrera and Bartolo Colon are among the 20 or so players who may be disciplined for their links to the now-closed Miami anti-aging clinic, Biogenesis of America.

  • Spurs getting a different LeBron

    The Associated Press
    MIAMI — Before reaching the top of basketball, LeBron James was run over by the San Antonio Spurs.
    The Spurs swept James’ Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2007 NBA Finals, so long ago that the winning game plan focused on exploiting James’ weaknesses. Those are nearly impossible to find now, and James essentially warned the Spurs that they shouldn’t bother looking.
    The Spurs already know.

  • Go Fish - June 7, 2013

    FISHING REPORT,
    June 4

    Charette Lakes: We had no reports from anglers this week.   
    Cimarron River: Water flow below Eagle Nest on Monday was 30 cfs. Trout fishing was good using elk hair caddis, Cimarron specials, brassies, Cimarron worms, stimulators, salmon eggs and worms. Anglers using dry dropper combinations did best. Stone flies are starting to put in an appearance. Fishing at the Gravel Pit Lakes was fair to good using salmon eggs, Power Bait and Pistol Petes.
