    MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc led a one-two Ferrari sweep in the first practice session Friday for Sunday’s Australian Grand Prix. Sainz completed the revamped Albert Park circuit in a time of 1 minute, 19.806 seconds, with Leclerc .571 second behind. Red Bull drivers Sergio Perez and defending series champion Max Verstappen were third and fourth-fastest ahead of a second practice session later Friday. There will be another practice session on Saturday ahead of late afternoon qualifying for Sunday’s race. Lewis Hamilton was seventh-fastest in his Mercedes and local hope Daniel Ricciardo was eighth in his McLaren. Leclerc won the opening race of the season in Bahrain and Verstappen took the second in Saudi Arabia, both in March. In a major renovation to the track, five corners were reprofiled at Albert Park and two were removed completely, meaning practice times were generally five seconds faster than in previous races. The opening practice session came 756 days since the 2020 race canceled at the last minute due to the COVID-19 pandemic with spectators lining up at...

    The Coast Guard station at Grand Marais, originally known as Superior North, was built in 1928 to aid the people who traveled and worked on the sometimes turbulent waters of Lake Superior. Since the opening of the station in 1929, Coast Guard personnel from the station have rescued hundreds of fishermen, boat crews and passengers, and recreational boaters from the lake. In 1918, Grand Marais was considered the center of the North Shore fishing industry, with 126 official licensed fishermen, an annual estimated value of $172,684, and an annual yield of 4,283,684 pounds of fish. The natural harbor of Grand Marais was also a port from which loads of pulpwood, gravel, and other forest products were shipped to mills across the lake. Ships carried locals, visitors, and supplies to the communities along the shore. Fishermen, boat crews and passengers, and other travelers on Lake Superior were at grave personal risk from intense storms, which could blow up without warning. The nearest life-saving station was ninety miles across the lake in Michigan or 120 miles (by car) down the shore, in...

    BLACK HAWK, Colo. (CBS4) – The Monarch Casino Resort Spa has been open and functional for years now, but the grand opening this week finalized the last bits of the $400 million construction project over the last decade. (credit: CBS) “We are part of Colorado and we are here to make sure Colorado grows and thrives and that we are a huge part of Colorado’s success,” Erica Ferris, Director of Marketing at Monarch Casino Resort Spa said Wednesday. It’s a triumphant return to open business in the heavily gaming based economy for the mountain town. Gilpin County recorded a $6.5 millionloss out of its $20 million budget in 2020. The budget is mainly comprised of gaming tax revenue and property taxes, so when doors closed, money dried up with it. “We were closed for 92 days,” Ferris explained. “During that time, major newspapers were reporting that the Gilpin County, Colorado, was one of the hardest hit counties in the nation.” (credit: CBS) Now, doors are open and new restaurants and sports betting locations have been added to the towering Monarch...
