This Sunday is Father's Day and for brothers Jake and Scott Wylie it will be the first without their dad, the late seven-time Holland Speedway NASCAR Late Model champion Rick Wylie. Rick died May 3 from health complications at age 59. Since his passing and still very much in mourning, the Wylie brothers have returned to the racetrack. Supporting their efforts from the grandstand as always is their mother Karen Wylie who along with her late husband Rick, raised their two sons into the racing way of life. Much of what the Wylie brothers know about racing has come from their parents. Karen won a season championship many years ago at Perry Speedway. This past Saturday evening at Oswego Speedway, emotions were high as Jake (age 28) took the checkered flag in the 30-lap New York Super Stock Series main event while Scott (35) finished a strong third. It was an emotional turn of events for a family that is trying their best to deal with, and healing from, from Rick's loss. "It was definitely a … [Read more...] about Wylie brothers honor late dad with fine Oswego finishes

Now he faces trial for the deaths at a concert there — including some of his close friends. Max Harris at Santa Rita Jail. Credit Credit Katy Grannan for The New York Times Supported by ByElizabeth Weil Dec. 12, 2018 Once a week, Max Harris is allowed to leave his 6-by-12-foot cell to go outside. The first thing he does, before the other inmates arrive in the small cement yard in Santa Rita Jail, is run around and yell, “Safari!” as he picks up all the bugs — the furry moths with leopard spots, the grasshoppers in jade armor. He wants to move them out of harm’s way before other men in red-and-white-striped jumpsuits start playing basketball. Sometimes he’ll find a … [Read more...] about He Helped Build an Artists’ Utopia.

Chapter 1 “Inmates Run This Bitch” Chapter 2 Prison Experiments Chapter 3 The CCA Way Chapter 4 “You Got to Survive” Chapter 5 Lockdown Chapter 1: “Inmates Run This Bitch” Have you ever had a riot?” I ask a recruiter from a prison run by the Corrections Corporation of America (CCA). I take a breath. Am I really going to become a prison guard? Now that it might actually happen, it feels scary and a bit extreme. From the editor: Why we sent a reporter to work as a private prison guard I started applying for jobs in private prisons because I wanted to see the inner workings of an industry that holds 131,000 of the nation’s 1.6 million prisoners.

Andrew Atkins Naples Daily News Published 4:38 PM EDT Sep 27, 2018 If you asked John Wendel, he’d tell you: “You’re there because something’s wrong.” Wendel, of Naples, was one of 900 employees and contractors Florida Power & Light sent to North Carolina for repair and restoration efforts on behalf of Duke Energy as part of a mutual assistance agreement. And they went, of course, because something was indeed wrong. Or at least it was about to be. The National Hurricane Center first identified Hurricane Florence as a potential tropical cyclone in the eastern Atlantic Ocean. It became a tropical storm Sept. 1 and became a hurricane Sept. 4.

Sections Skip to content Skip to site index Feature With the new show ‘Maniac,’ he continues bringing an auteur’s sensibility — and a fanatical attention to detail — to the small screen. Credit Credit Richard Burbridge for The New York Times Supported by ByWilla Paskin Sept. 11, 2018 At the end of 2009, the director Cary Joji Fukunaga was hunting for his second feature film. His first, “Sin Nombre,” had been an almost preposterously ambitious undertaking for a first-time filmmaker, tracking the intertwining stories of an immigrant and an erstwhile member of MS-13 as they made the dangerous journey to the United States border atop fast-moving train cars, all written by Fukunaga in slang-heavy Spanish. Over the course of two years, he made multiple trips to Mexico, riding the real-life version of these trains and visiting prisons in Chiapas to make connections with gang members who could help ensure that … [Read more...] about ‘True Detective’ Director Cary Fukunaga Is Bringing His Obsessions to Netflix
