Dave Birkett Detroit Free Press Published 6:00 AM EDT Jun 6, 2019 Sam Martin wants nothing to do with the past. Not the four standout seasons he had to start his NFL career —when he mostly punted at a Pro Bowl level — nor the 1.5 seasons since, when nothing seemed to go right. Martin suffered a serious offseason foot injury in 2017 that cost him half the year and he hasn’t been the same punter since. He showed noticeable regression upon his return two years ago, when he averaged a career-low 43.4 yards per punt in 10 games, and last year he still was dealing with some lingering effects from the injury. Martin netted just 39.2 yards per punt last season, and the Lions’ early-season struggles in the punt game led to special-teams coordinator Joe Marciano’s dismissal. Now reunited with his first NFL position coach, John Bonamego, who was hired as Marciano’s replacement in January, Martin is a prime candidate for a bounce-back year.

As the chug of the engine fades away, 2,500 books imperceptibly settle on the shelves and, already, a man is walking across the farmyard towards us. Farmer Roy Parfitt has been borrowing books from the mobile library for decades. Years ago, says Roy, quite a crowd would appear when the library van parked up at his North Tuddenham farm.

Is Denaturalization the Next Front in the Trump Administration’s War on Immigration? Sections Skip to content Skip to site index The prosecution of naturalized United States citizens is a sign of a gathering storm. Odette and Gilbert Dureland, who became naturalized Americans in 2012. Credit Credit Sharif Hamza for The New York Times Supported by BySeth Freed Wessler Dec. 19, 2018 On the morning of June 2, 2017, Odette Dureland woke to a loud knock on the door of the one-story bungalow that she shares with her husband and her children. She was recovering from minor surgery, so her 26-year-old daughter, Rebecca, rose to open the door. Outside, there was a group of federal agents from Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

This story was produced through a collaboration between ProPublica, Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting and Newsy. Andy Leisher didn’t like what he was seeing on the security cameras from his post at the front desk of the Ramada Inn in Janesville, Wisconsin. On the closed-circuit television in front of him, Leisher watched as a man in his 30s kissed what appeared to be a teenager in the motel hot tub. It put him on alert. “It just felt awkward,” Leisher said of the scene. “She just seemed really young, and he seemed really old. Or too old to be with her.” When Leisher, a part-time pastor, confirmed that the girl was 16, he called the police. A few hours later, police arrested 31-year-old … [Read more...] about When it comes to rape, just because a case is cleared, it doesn’t mean it’s solved
