Credit Credit Mark Catlin Supported by ByJuliet Macur April 8, 2019 WABASHA, Minn. — In the weeks before the Olympic cyclist Kelly Catlin killed herself, she felt her mind slipping.

(April 8 marks the 50th anniversary of the first major league game in Padres history. To commemorate the occasion, the Union-Tribune is producing a nine-part series on memorable debuts through the years. Today: Chapter Two ... Why Did The Chicken Cross Friars Road?) The Chicken definitely came before the egg. Or, more specifically, before the eggs. In 1974, local radio station KGB planned a promotion to give away candy Easter eggs to children at the San Diego Zoo. But first the station had to find someone willing to wear the chicken suit it had rented for someone to wear at the event. The costume featured a paper mache head and red cloth body with the station’s call letters affixed across the front. An intern had on it for about an hour, took it off and wanted nothing else to do with the idea. So KGB sent an employee out to San Diego State to find someone else for the job. That someone was a journalism major named Ted Giannoulas. It wasn’t the first time Giannoulas was … [Read more...] about Padres 50th anniversary: Why did The Chicken cross Friars Road?

Sport / Blether with Brown by John Brown December 17, 2018, 10:45 am FacebookTwitterLinkedInWhatsAppEmail Sign up to our Sport newsletter The photo on October 27 of the Dundee Rockets ice hockey team from 1981 provoked comment from several quarters. One reader was intrigued by the team’s jerseys. “Why did that Rockets team have ‘Rangers’ emblazoned across the front of their jerseys,” he asked. I contacted my former colleague Steve Taylor. Steve has retired from his full-time position on the Tele sportsdesk but has now taken up new duties as the paper’s ice hockey correspondent. In my opinion it’s a good appointment as, apart from his wife, family and steak pie, ice hockey is his first love. Steve quickly responded with a reply from George Reid’s son, Mark. George was in the team photo published and Mark said: “Rockets supremo Tom Stewart was friendly with the great Rod Gilbert from the New York Rangers … [Read more...] about Blether: Why did Dundee team have ‘Rangers’ on their jerseys?
Nørrebrogade in Copenhagen. File photo: Ida Guldbæk Arentsen/Ritzau Scanpix The Local Denmark’s editor Michael Barrett is hoping to become a Danish citizen. For most prospective new nationals of the Scandinavian country, that means passing a citizenship test. I pedalled hard as I cycled along Nørrebrogade, a busy main road in Copenhagen’s Nørrebro neighbourhood, in chilly weather on Wednesday afternoon. I was a few minutes late for the recommended arrival time of 12:15pm at Nørrebrohallen, a sports centre and one of 53 locations across the country where the citizenship test was to be taken simultaneously from 1pm. 4,537 people had registered for the test nationwide, according to figures from the Ministry of Immigration and Integration. There was no need to get too out of breath, as when I arrived there was still a large queue of people waiting to register and hand over their mobile phones for safekeeping before entering the exam hall. … [Read more...] about I took the Danish citizenship test today.
