Jason Thompson wins Kings 2013 Oscar Robertson Triple Double Award
The Sacramento Bee - almost 4 years
I'm still flying back from OKC, but here is the press release from the Kings on the latest honor for Jason Thompson: SACRAMENTO, CALIF., Apr. 16, 2013 - In honor of one of the NBA's all-time greats, the Sacramento Kings continue to celebrate the legacy of Oscar Robertson, both on and off the court, by awarding the 2013 Oscar Robertson Triple-Double Award to Jason Thompson. The longest-tenured player on the current Kings roster, Thompson has proven himself a model professional and dedicated steward in the community ever since being selected with the 12th overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft. Heralded for his hustle, rebounding ability and competitive spirit, JT has cemented his legacy as a fan favorite and respected teammate. Already an active contributor towards the Kings charitable efforts, Thompson broadened his philanthropic footprint after experiencing a personal tragedy a few seasons ago.

Malaika Bobino: Lob City Shut Down in Sacramento
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
It's an amazing show! The entertainment is phenomenal except once in awhile the show stopping, acrobatic moves fail. And that's what happened when the Los Angeles Clippers dunk show got out shadowed by the Kings' three-point show. In what seemed like the best performance Sacramento fans have seen all season, the Kings beat the Clippers 116-101. Connecting on 14 three-pointers, one shy of their season high, Sacramento collectively played their best ball game. Six players were in double figures and the Kings played hard ball all four quarters. "The game plan was to be aggressive as much as possible from a defensive standpoint," said coach Keith Smart. "We could give up some highlight dunks and some three's, that's going to happen, but we hoped that over the course of the game our guys could wear them down." Los Angeles got off to a great start but Sacramento's defense kept them within reach throughout the first half. The usual suspects did their part, Blake Griffi ...

Malaika Bobino: Kings Lose to the Bucks
Huffington Post Sports - almost 4 years
It was certainly the reaction many expected. No one was surprised DeMarcus Cousins got ejected for a flagrant foul two after elbowing Mike Dunleavy in the head. Dunleavy had done a good job of boxing Cousins out who fell awkwardly and got up limping. "I'm not going to begin to try and reason with someone like that," said Dunleavy. "I'm not even sure what I did, I thought I was just blocking him out. After the timeout he got in my face. In those situations, you've got to be ready. I felt like something was probably going to happen... It's too bad because he probably hurt the team more than he hurt me." Despite the game being almost in their reach, the Kings fell to the Milwaukee Bucks 115-113. Demarcus led the way for Sacramento with 24 points and 10 rebounds but his night was cut short for going after Dunleavy. He probably would've had a 40-point night but his temper often gets the best of him. Cousins picked up his 12th technical foul and third flagrant-two of ...

NBA Trade Deadline Winners and Losers
Huffington Post Sports - about 4 years
While the NBA's annual trade deadline has come and gone without the barrage of deals that has characterized years past, some moves (or the decision not to move) will undoubtedly affect the second half of the season more than others. Fortunately for the Clippers, owner Donald Sterling shrewdly elected not to mortgage away the team's future and avoided the one absolute deadline no-no: Doing a deal simply to do a deal. Here's what to expect from the winners and losers at the trade deadline: WINNERS Los Angeles Clippers The duo of Bledsoe and Blake Griffin provides the rare combination of premier speed and athleticism. Sometimes it's actually the decision not to make a trade that makes a team a deadline winner. Point guard Eric Bledsoe is just 23 years old, and at this point in his young career, one can argue that he's been more successful than former Kentucky teammate and 2010 top overall pick, John Wall. Bledsoe is a blur with the ball, a dynamic and har ...

Lorraine Devon Wilke: Still Racist After All These Years
Huffington Post - over 4 years
America: just seconds away from a clean getaway. All convinced of our post-racial bona fides, certain of our moral and cultural evolution, ready to embrace the multihued palette of a vibrant mixed-race society... then we elect a black president and that old Devil comes slithering out from under the carpet, crawling in from behind the drapes. You know the one. All hiss and ignorance; the beast that inspires white hoods, lynched men, shuttered neighborhoods, and ugly political speech. Racism. Ann Coulter -- Mad Mouthpiece of the Right -- would not agree with this thesis. She of the tight jaw and narrow mind wondered recently on Bill Maher's show, "Where are all the racists liberals keep talking about?" None exist, she announced to a flabbergasted Bill; none except for "liberal racial demagoguery." Annie, Annie, Annie... I wish you could see how silly you look from the view outside your little blonde head. "Where?" she asks? Not hard to find, but let's make this ea ...

Massachusetts Volkswagen Dealership Sells Record-Breaking VW Passat
Braintree Patch - over 4 years
There are more than three months left in 2012, but Volkswagen has already sold more Passats in the United States than any year previous, and the record-setting model was sold locally last week at a Greater Boston VWdealership. The automaker announced on Sept. 19 that U.S. Passat sales reached 77,524 units year-to-date with a sale at Quirk Volkswagen in Braintree, surpassing the previous mark of 77,523 units that was set during the entirety of 2001. Variants of the European VW Passat have been sold stateside since the 1970s, however, the Passat nameplate didn’t cross the pond until the 1990 model year. Then last year, Volkswagen kicked off production of a redesigned U.S.-market Passat at its new Chattanooga, Tenn. plant. Featuring a roomier interior, more standard features and a smoother ride at a lower price point, the new VW Passat quickly attracted buyers, prompting production increases during its first year on the market. “Our customers have been enthusiastically drawn to the ...

Comics Roundup!
The Portland Mercury - over 4 years
Reviews of new funnybooks, in handy capsule form. by Alison Hallett, Courtney Ferguson, Erik Henriksen and Suzette Smith No Straight Lines edited by Justin Hall (Fantagraphics) No Straight Lines: Four Decades of Queer Comics is an important, overdue anthology—but to describe it as such shouldn't take away from just how much fun it is. Among the stories chronologically collected here, there are tales of young love, heartbreak, frustrated nights at the club, and meaningless hookups of both the fun and depressing variety; there are drag queens, lesbians who sleep with men, transgender people in transition, and a few anthropomorphic penises, just for good measure. Some of the most powerful work here deals with the AIDS crisis, while the funniest stuff mostly involves butts. Queer-themed comics have long been self-published, indie affairs (gay Green Lantern notwithstanding)—thus this book collects not only a remarkable range of tones, ...

Marlin & Ray's Is A Catch For Stafford
Fredericksburg Patch - almost 5 years
When you enter Marlin & Ray's in Stafford County it has the appearance of a typical seafood chain restaurant with beach art on the walls and a fisherman's vibe, but the food is what really counts and this restaurant gets high marks. Marlin & Rays has had the busiest opening week in the franchise's history, said manager Jason Thompson. The restaurant has happy hours at the bar from 4 to 7 p.m. every day of the week, which is rare. "The happy hour is awesome. People love it," Thompson said. I've never seen so many servers and busboys at a restaurant before and everyone seemed well trained and busy on this Wednesday night. Every table was taken at 7 p.m. and people were waiting in the entryway to be seated. My server, William, visited the table numerous times to fill my water, talk about sports and was overall responsive to his diner's requests—and he gets an extra plus for being a Dallas Cowboys fan.

VOTE 2012: Meet the New Hanover County Commission Republican candidates

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- The race for three open seats on the New Hanover County Commission is hotly contested this primary with six candidates in the GOP race alone. Each of the six Republicans say they have what it takes to win the race, but what exactly do they think matters to the community? The candidates agree there are many issues facing the county including the budget, economy, and jobs. Some hopefuls say their previous service shows their dedication to the county. “People,” said Buck O’Shields. “I'm a people person, and I believe that we all have ideals and goals." “Goodness knows if someone starts some controversy and drama, I can be the first one to get in the mix and mess it up,” said Jason Thompson. “I think that's healthy. I think you need to be passionate about what you're doing, and I am." “I have committed most of my life to community service and helping others with the ultimate goal of improving the quality of life,” said Beth Dawson.
