Christian Coleman , the Olympic 100m favorite before being banned last year over missed drug tests, had his suspension reduced from two years to 18 months on appeal. He will still miss the Tokyo Games. “While I appreciate that the arbitrators correctly found that I am a clean athlete, I am obviously disappointed that I will miss the Olympic Games this summer,” Coleman, the 2019 World champion, said in a statement, his first public acknowledgement that he will not compete in Tokyo. “I look forward to representing the United States at both World Championships in 2022 [indoors and outdoors], especially the first ever World Championships held in the United States next summer where I plan to defend my world title against a new Olympic champion in the 100 meters.” A Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) panel cut Coleman’s ban from the maximum two years to 18 months, deciding his degree of negligence was lower than previously found. Coleman is suspended into mid-November for missing … [Read more...] about Christian Coleman’s ban reduced, will still miss Olympics
We’ve been saying for years—decades, to be honest—that America does not need any more restrictions on firearms to combat violent criminals who misuse guns; we simply need to enforce the laws that are already on the books. Our argument has always been that passing new laws will only affect the otherwise law-abiding, responsible gun owners the anti-gun crowd keeps claiming support their “sensible” proposals. Violent criminals will always ignore gun laws, just as they ignore the myriad other laws that make them violent criminals. But it seems these criminals are not the only ones who ignore gun laws. So does the federal government, according to President Biden. If you don’t believe us, just listen to what he actually said. “And to your point, Mr. Baker, regarding the lack of prosecutions on lying on Form 4473s, we simply don ’t have the time or manpower to prosecute everybody who lies on a form, that checks a wrong box, that answers a question inaccurately.” Biden … [Read more...] about More Laws For Government To Ignore?

For all its beauty, last spring had a pall of grief tucked in here and there between the blooming flowers and dappled light. We didn’t know what was here or what was coming — and it was scary. Like most everyone else, I had more time on my own and with my family than I had ever had before. I sought activities and moments of comfort, one of which was carving and printing linoleum blocks. After a day of working, I would sit quietly on my patio, watching the beauty of the leaves dancing and river flowing, and I would carve scenes into linoleum. The most meaningful image I created was four dancing characters. Once my husband helped me print it, I titled the piece, “We will dance together again.” I’ll own that as I carved the dancing figures, I shed a few tears. As the product of a Southern Baptist upbringing with minimal dance floor abilities, I still love those moments of abandon, dancing with people I love. And last spring, I wasn’t certain when we would have that opportunity … [Read more...] about Jan Risher: A dance party is just what the doctor ordered after so much time apart
