Helene St. James Detroit Free Press Published 1:50 PM EST Dec 5, 2018 Andreas Athanasiou was baffled and disappointed. He is the Detroit Red Wings’ leading goal scorer with 11, and might have had another one entering Thursday’s game at Toronto things gone differently Tuesday. Athanasiou was on a breakaway in the third period when Lightning forward Alex Killorn used his stick to slow Athanasiou, tugging at his leg. Athanasiou lost his balance, and both ended up penalized: Killorn for hooking, Athanasiou for embellishment. More: Red Wings say 'no chance' this call was right in loss to Lightning “I thought I was going to get a penalty shot, to be honest,” Athanasiou said Wednesday. “It was almost a clear cut breakaway – obviously I didn’t want to dive, I wanted to score. “Everyone makes mistakes. Some people have tough nights, even the refs. The game is really fast, so you have to be paying attention and you have to … [Read more...] about Detroit Red Wings’ Athanasiou: No way I dove on breakaway

Kristen Jordan Shamus Detroit Free Press Published 6:00 AM EDT Sep 20, 2018 Cindy Shank was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison. Her three daughters were sentenced to 15 years without a mother. Her husband lost a wife. Cindy missed bedtime stories and kissing boo-boos, carving pumpkins, Easter egg hunts, birthday parties and Christmas mornings. She missed 4-year-old Autumn's first dance recital, baby Annalis' first steps, and 2-year-old Ava's first day of school. Her marriage to Adam Shank was torn to shreds. The fallout from Cindy Shank's 2008 sentencing on drug conspiracy charges was wide-reaching. It changed the trajectory of the life of the woman who went to prison that day as well as the lives of everyone who loved her. All of it is captured in a film directed by her brother Rudy Valdez, who grew up in Lansing and set out to document the lives of Cindy's children so his sister would one day be able to see what … [Read more...] about ‘The Sentence’ reveals who really pays when mom goes to prison

0 View Gallery View Comments It’s not really a pinggg, or even a wwwwhhck. When John Elway connected off the first tee box on The Broadmoor’s fabled East Course on Sunday, the delightful sound of sweet spot meeting Titleist turned heads all the way over at the starter’s shack, 20 yards away: thhhhmmp. No. 7 can play. But No. 4 took him for $100. During a recent game at Castle Pines Golf Club, Broncos quarterback Case Keenum fired a 74 that nipped Elway’s 76. The new guy didn’t even give his boss any shots. Kids these days! “Case can really hit it,” Elway said Sunday. “It reminded me of my youth, watching how long he is off the tee and with his irons. I can’t do that anymore.” Related: Woody Paige: Could be a dream Colorado foursome at U.S. Senior Open if John Elway qualifies Monday at The Broadmoor, 84 hopefuls will compete for two spots in the U.S. Senior Open on one … [Read more...] about Paul Klee: John Elway, U.S. Senior Open chairman, says of the Broncos: “As motivated as I’ve been since I took this job”
