Double Drivel 4/29/14 Issue

Mike’s Commentary: In 2011, Ryan Braun was named the National League Most Valuable Player as the left fielder for the Milwaukee Brewers. In 2013, Braun was suspended for the final 65 games of the season for his use of performance enhancing drugs. Thus far in the 2014 season, Braun has returned to form and is hitting .300 with 6 home runs. He proved that he didn’t need to use PED’s when he recently, in consecutive games, took Pirates closer, Jason Grilli, deep in late innings to set up back to back come from behind wins.

Into The Outdoors 4/29/14 Issue

Well, folks, by the time you read this column, it will be almost May.  In my personal opinion, May is the best month of the whole year.  Winter is definitely over, and summer is just around the corner.  I know that there are a lot of summer people out there, and it’s time to celebrate.  May is great for a lot of reasons.  First of all, for teachers and students, it means that school is almost over for another year.

Football Hero Becomes Role Model for Deaf Children

Seattle Seahawks fullback Derrick Coleman didn’t quite win the Most Valuable Player award this year in the Hawks’ Super Bowl romp over the Denver Broncos, but don’t tell that to hundreds of hearing-impaired youngsters who watched the game as his guests. As far as they were concerned, he was the MVP for all time and a lock for the Hall of Fame. And who’s to say they’re wrong?
