Marlowe Alter Detroit Free Press Published 12:43 p.m. UTC Jul 22, 2018 Detroit's four professional sports teams have had plenty of stars emerge this millennium. From Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg with the Detroit Red Wings, to Ben Wallace and Chauncey Billups with the Detroit Pistons, to Justin Verlander and Max Scherzer with the Detroit Tigers, and Calvin Johnson and Matthew Stafford with the Detroit Lions, Detroit hasn't lacked star power. Last July, we ranked the top 20 pro athletes in Detroit. But after many underperformed or were traded, we thought it was appropriate to look to the future. Who's the next big talent in Detroit? Our sports staff evaluated each roster, and some prospects, to compile a list of potential stars on the rise. We then ranked the athletes based on who's most likely to become a star in our city, as we try to break a 10-year championship drought. The qualifications: The athlete must be younger than 25 years … [Read more...] about These 12 Detroit athletes could become the city’s next big star
GREEN VALLEY — The Substation wildfire that raged across 80,000 acres is out, officials said. Focuses are shifting toward recovery after days of blazes. "In Sherman county and for the folks in Wasco county, you showed the state how to get stuff done, and we did it," Sherman County Sheriff Brad Lohrey said. "This thing is done." The goal is to have the fire completely contained within the next day or two, said Kyle Cannon, operations sections chief for Pacific Northwest Team Two. It's mostly black, charred earth inside the fire zone. Firefighters are checking the fire's perimeter to feel for any heat that could be dangerous if strong wind comes. This marks the end of a wildfire that drew firefighting resources from around Washington and Oregon. Once designated the country's No. 1 firefighting priority, some firefighters are being sent home or to other fires breaking out in southern Oregon. Fire officials hosted a community meeting in Green Valley Saturday afternoon to … [Read more...] about ‘This thing is done’: Officials discuss next steps for Substation fire

More than ever, Republicans need Robert Ray’s wisdom Justice Kennedy was an accidental libertarian All articles by Adam A resignation on the Iowa City Council leaves city leaders with three bad options. Former council member Kingsley Botchway was confirmed last week to an administrative position in the Waterloo Community School District. He delivered his resignation effective the following day, leaving his at-large seat empty. The timeline for filling empty positions is governed by a maze of state laws, complicated even more by the regularly scheduled state and federal elections in November. A special city election can’t be mixed with the general … [Read more...] about Iowa City should let the people pick next council member
Thousands of tiny tremors over the past few months have moved parts of Washington and Vancouver Island westward. It’s a near annual event that backs expectations by some scientists that a big earthquake may hit the Seattle area harder than their previous models suggested. This recent wave of activity began in May and appears to be dying off now, according to University of Washington earth-sciences professor Ken Creager. It’s a process, known as episodic tremor and slip, thought to increase stress on locked faults — areas where tectonic plates cannot move past each other. Earthquakes occur when the pressure on locked zones reaches the breaking point and the plates snap past each other. Scientists believe an episode of tremors could someday trigger a so-called megaquake on the offshore fault called the Cascadia Subduction Zone. The 700-mile-long fault runs from Vancouver Island to northern California, and can unleash earthquakes of up to magnitude 9.0. It’s one of … [Read more...] about Tremors shove Washington westward, offer clues into next big earthquake
