Lets just say
By Gary Peterson | [email protected] | Bay Area News Group PUBLISHED: September 20, 2018 at 9:16 am | UPDATED: September 20, 2018 at 9:46 am Colin Kaepernick’s attorney is back doing what he does best — dropping hints regarding the future of his high-profile client. During a recent walk-and-talk with TMZ, it was more like the whiff of a whisper of a possibility of a hint. “This is what I’m going to predict,” Mark Geragos said when asked if Kaepernick would ever be signed to an NFL contract. “I would just say, ‘Stay tuned.’ Next week there might be some news. That’s as far as I’m going to go.” That’s what all the fan dancers say. Geragos told TMZ that Kaepernick, his girlfriend, and Eric Reid have been watching the NFL this season. Neither Kaepernick nor Reid, pioneers of the silent kneeling protests before NFL games, have been signed since leaving the 49ers. Both are pursuing collusion … [Read more...] about Did Colin Kaepernick’s attorney just say the Raiders might be interested?

Tim Evans and Marisa Kwiatkowski IndyStar Published 5:46 p.m. UTC May 24, 2018 USA Gymnastics officials agreed to provide what Larry Nassar's attorney called "false excuses" for his absence from major gymnastics events in 2015, rather than disclose to parents and gymnasts that Nassar was under investigation for child sexual abuse. Emails obtained by IndyStar reveal that on two separate occasions, Nassar and a USA Gymnastics attorney negotiated cover stories — first that Nassar was sick and later that he was focusing on his private practice — to explain why the longtime team physician was not attending two major events in the run-up to the 2016 Olympics. In one of the emails, Indianapolis attorney Scott D. Himsel told Nassar his medical techniques were under investigation, and "it is in everyone's best interest" that Nassar not attend a gymnastics event that weekend. Himsel said USA Gymnastics would tell people Nassar was not attending for … [Read more...] about Larry Nassar and USA Gymnastics’ cover story: ‘Can we just say i am sick?’

ByNeal Thompson June 15, 2018 My older son was in eighth grade when he got home from a day of skateboarding, glassy-eyed and dopey, and fell asleep on the couch. For two hours. My wife and I sniffed around him as he snored, and barked at the same time: “Pot?!” It was the end of our family’s innocence and the start of a yearslong battle against substances. Our job as parents got even harder when the law turned against us. In 2012, with our boys on the verge of high school in Seattle, the state of Washington approved Initiative 502, which would begin to phase in legalized marijuana. It was as if the electorate had conspired to legalize arson, or dropped … [Read more...] about A ‘Just Say No’ Dad’s Struggle in the Land of ‘Just Say Yes’
