    TENNIS legend John McEnroe has described retiring presenter Sue Barker as "the Roger Federer of broadcasting" in a fitting tribute.

    May Pang was clearly up to a challenge. Fresh out of school at 19, she had talked her way into a coveted job at the New York offices of The Beatles' music company Apple Records. She was outgoing and rebellious but also amenable, and John Lennon and wife Yoko Ono liked her so much they soon asked her to become their personal assistant. The rock 'n' roll-mad daughter of Chinese immigrants from Spanish Harlem enjoyed every minute of her time with the couple — the union many believed broke up the Fab Four. Pang was soon helping them in the recording studio, accompanying them to the UK and their country mansion at Tittenhurst Park, Ascot, and proving so engaging and photogenic that David Bailey shot her as part of a Lennon-Ono album cover. Pang bought John and Yoko's groceries and answered the phone — and she also supplied backing vocals on some of their songs including the 1971 hit single Happy Christmas (War Is Over). Then, one morning in 1973, when she turned up for work at their home in...

    Visitors to Los Angeles often put on their list of city sights the Hollywood sign, the Venice boardwalk, the Watts Towers, and for the more adventurous and olfactory-challenged, the Farmer John’s meatpacking plant in Vernon. A favored destination for location scouts, for aficionados of camp, muralists and hot dog connoisseurs, this hidden-away abattoir was less distinguished for what took place inside its walls than for its civic packaging. From the corners of Bandini Boulevard, Soto Street and Vernon Avenue, tourists and locals alike can take in scenes of a bucolic, agrarian past such as Los Angeles has never known. Painted pigs gambol in green fields by meandering streams under blue, cloud-studded skies happily oblivious of the fate that awaited them within. That fate took a slightly different turn Friday when the owner of the facility, Smithfield Foods, announced the facility will close early next year. The Virginia-based company said that this step is necessary due to “the escalating cost of doing business in California.” The fate of the building has yet to be determined. “We are exploring all our options,”...
    Washington (CNN)John Hinckley Jr., the man who attempted to assassinate then-President Ronald Reagan in 1981, remains on track to be freed from the strict conditions of release that he's been living with for several years, his lawyer told CNN on Wednesday. US District Judge Paul Friedman confirmed during a hearing Wednesday morning that Hinckley is still on track for "unconditional release" in mid-June, attorney Barry Levine told CNN. The eventual release will mark the end of decades of government oversight of Hinckley. Last September, Friedman approved a deal between the Justice Department and Hinckley for "unconditional release," without restrictions on his movements or internet activity. The judge said at the time that the restrictions would've been dropped "a long, long, long time ago" had Reagan not been Hinckley's target. Hinckley was released from a mental hospital in 2016 and had lived for a time in Williamsburg, Virginia, with his mother, who died last year. Justice Department agrees to drop release restrictions for Reagan shooter John Hinckley Jr. Hinckley was found not guilty by reason of insanity and spent nearly 30...

    With "Lennon, the Mobster, & the Lawyer: The Untold Story," Jay Bergen has authored a page-turner of a book about, of all things, a lawsuit. You may be drawn to the title as a Beatles fan, but you'll leave having enjoyed a glimpse into the strategic core of a first-rate legal mind. It is incredible to contemplate the sheer amount of time that John Lennon spent with various legal cases taking up his headspace, the most prominent of which was surely his longstanding immigration case. Lennon existed in public life for some 17 years, with fully a third of it living in fear of being deported from the United States. He had landed on President Richard M. Nixon's notorious enemies list, which resulted in years of legal entanglements for the former Beatle as he fought to stay in the country. Fortunately, Lennon prevailed, earning his coveted Green Card in July 1976. But that's another story. In "Lennon, the Mobster, & the Lawyer," Bergen focuses on Lennon's other case, his intellectual property dispute with Morris Levy, the publisher of Chuck Berry's...

    Tommy John elbow reconstruction surgery was once so rare that when the procedure’s namesake had it in 1974, many believed he’d never pitch again. Now, it’s so common that one doctor has performed three such surgeries on Major League Baseball pitchers in the past two weeks. Orioles ace John Means became the latest, receiving the surgery Wednesday morning in Texas from Dr. Keith Meister. Orioles executive vice president and general manager Mike Elias called the surgery “successful” and said the club expects Means to return “at some point in 2023.” “Everything went great,” Elias said. It can take 18 months to come back from the procedure, so the road ahead for Means is lengthy. But it’s also a well-trodden path, as hundreds of hurlers have had the surgery and continued their careers. In 2021, about one-third of MLB pitchers were Tommy John veterans. The surgery repairs a torn ligament in the elbow — the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL), which connects the humerus to the ulna — with a tendon from elsewhere in the body. When John, a Los Angeles Dodgers...
    As the lead singer of vocal trio the Ronettes, Ronnie Spector helped bring a hot, sexy edge to the Sixties girl-group sound. She was the muse and would become, notoriously, the prisoner of producer husband Phil Spector. Before she died in January at the age of 78, she updated her sensational autobiography – an astonishing glimpse into the hedonistic excesses of her rock ’n’ roll life... The Ronettes, were signed by legendary music producer Phil Spector in March 1963.  Once he had us, we became his obsession. And pretty soon Phil and I were boyfriend and girlfriend. He wasn’t what some people would call handsome. Even though he was only 22, Phil already had a receding hairline and almost no chin. But he had great eyes. They looked deep, like he could see right into you. I thought he was adorable. Our first single, Be My Baby, hit the charts in the last week of August 1963. After that, the thrills only got bigger. We started a tour of Britain in January 1964. We must have been quite a sight...
    TYSON FURY says his mum could not understand why he was so famous and asked him why so many people ask him for photographs and autographs. The WBC champion is set to return to the ring this weekend at Wembley to defend his WBC heavyweight title against Dillian Whyte. 2 Tyson Fury's mum does not understand why he is so famous and asks the world champion why so many people ask him for photographs and autograph Whether his mother Amber will be in attendance remains to be seen, as she had never been to one of her son’s fights, amateur or pro, despite dad John playing a big part in the 33-year-old’s ring career. In his autobiography, Behind The Mask, the heavyweight hero explained how his mum is not fully aware of his superstardom. And she was puzzled when so many fans asked for pictures during a shopping trip following his 2018 draw with Deontay Wilder. Fury famously went on to beat Wilder in the 2020 rematch, before winning again in their trilogy battle last year. LATEST SPORT NEWSHIGH 'N...

    John Scofield’s 2011 concert at Grace Cathedral wasn’t quite his first unaccompanied performance, but filling that reverberant room with sound as part of SFJAZZ’s Sacred Space series seems to have kindled a slow burning creative flame that fully ignited a decade later during the pandemic. Returning to the SFJAZZ Center this week, the guitarist opens a four-night run April 14 with a solo show focusing on tunes from his debut solo recording, an eponymous album recorded last summer and released last week on ECM. With time on his hands, he decided to plunge into a demanding and exposed project that he’d long kept on the back burner. “Grace Cathedral was only the second time I’d ever played a solo show, and it was when I started to really consider a situation like that,” said Scofield, 70, who did several short European tours in recent years to hone a solo approach and develop a body of material suitable for a jazz artist’s version of the full Monty. “Solo jazz guitar is impossible,” he said. “Andres Segovia I am not. I had...
    That's the stuff. On Sunday, Comedian John Oliver’s HBO news show Last Week Tonight with John Oliver had a fun time with One American News Network’s (OANN) recent lawsuit against DirectTV, AT&T, and AT&T Chairman William Kennard. OANN has been facing an existential business crisis as of late. DirecTV announced that it would no longer carry the ultra-right-wing media outlet Herring Networks’ OANN or A Wealth of Entertainment (AWE) after their contracts ended this month. OANN contests that their whole operation is dependent on DirectTV—making up around 90% of its generated revenue—and is arguing that the exclusive ad sale deal with DirecTV taking them into 2024 is proof that they are contractually obligated to renew the lapsing carrier deal. At the same time, OANN founder Robert Herring Sr. swore in the deposition of an earlier case that OANN was AT&T’s idea, and that they asked for the network to be created. None of this matters for the moment. What does matter is that Oliver’s satirical news and politics show was named in the lawsuit. This is going to be good. Oliver begins by pointing out that...
    Julian Lennon is covering one of his late father John Lennon's most iconic songs for the first time ever.  After a longstanding vow to never perform the tune, the 59-year-old singer-songwriter delivered a haunting performance of Imagine during a benefit for Ukraine refugees on Saturday, April 9.  In a dark room full of candles, Julian Lennon did his version with only vocals and an acoustic guitar, played by Nuno Bettencourt, who would join to sing the final chorus in the arrangement. Iconic: Julian Lennon, 59, performed his late father John Lennon's classic song Imagine for the first time during the Stand Up For Ukraine Campaign benefit event 'Today, for the first time ever, I publicly performed my Dad's song, Imagine, the Liverpool, England native wrote on YouTube along with a video of his performance. 'The song reflects the light at the end of the tunnel, that we are all hoping for.' He continued, 'I had always said, that the only time I would ever consider singing Imagine would be if it was the end of the world.' RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1...
    ALL aboard on yet another leg of Sutton United’s incredible journey.

    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — In New England, John Madden’s voice has forever been attached to the birth of the Patriots’ dynasty. When the Patriots got the ball with 1:21 left in a tie game in Super Bowl XXXVI, it was Madden’s voice that suggested the team with the inexperienced quarterback ought to take a knee and play for overtime. And it was that same voice minutes later that said in a stunned and impressed tone, “What Tom Brady just did … gives me goosebumps.” That moment rightfully got a rebirth in December and January, after Madden passed away at age 85. Football fans the world over mourned his passing but celebrated his long life in football. One clip that didn’t resurface during that time has recently popped up on social media, and it’s every bit as good — if not better — than the famous clip from Super Bowl XXXVI vs. the Rams. This clip comes from the season opener in the 2002 season, aka the very next NFL game following that Super Bowl win for the...
    Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) called out fellow Republican Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) over his simple country lawyer shtick during the confirmation hearing of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson on Tuesday. In various appearances on cable news and in committee hearings, Kennedy has projected a folksy and sometimes punchy Matlock-esque figure who is always armed with one-liners and old adages. But despite the bumpkin image he puts forward, Kennedy actually holds degrees from Vanderbilt, the University of Virginia, and Oxford University, where he was a Rhodes scholar. When it was Sasse’s turn to question Jackson, he used the opportunity to needle Kennedy, his fellow Senate Judiciary Committee member. “I’m not an attorney, so farming and ranching people where from I come from know that John Kennedy is super smart, Rhodes lawyer, who kind of pretends to be an aw shucks kind of guy as he picks your pocket,” Sasse told the nominee. “Do I get equal time, Mr. Chairman?” Kennedy quipped. “He always gets unequal time,” Sasse shot back. “He always gets bonus time.” Sasse then resumed his questioning of Jackson. Indeed,...
    New York Times columnist John McWhorter has criticized his own paper's decision to capitalize 'Black' when writing about race, calling it pointless and a waste of time and energy.  In his latest editorial on Friday, McWhorter, a critic of 'woke vocabulary,' revealed that he always writes 'black' with a lowercase 'b' and that it's the Times editors who uppercase the word when linked to race because of the Time's house style. The august paper and hundreds of other outlets began capping up black when discussing race in summer 2020, after George Floyd's murder and ensuing Black Lives Matter protests.  'With the 'black' issue, my ultimate sentiment is that we spend an inordinate amount of time concerning ourselves with how matters of power and diversity are expressed,' wrote McWhorter, a linguist and senior fellow at the conservative Manhattan Institute think tank.  'I suspect that activists and agitators of yore would find our obsession with such things rather peculiar and worry that it siphoned off energy from more grounded efforts.'  New York Times columnist John McWhorter, a critic of 'woke vocabulary,'...

    New York's crime problem is so bad now that the head of the largest supermarket chain announced on Thursday he is hiring extra security to crackdown on thieves, after a 50 percent spike in shoplifting that the woke District Attorney is determined to ignore.  John Catsimatidis, owner and CEO of the Gristedes/D'Agostino's, told DailyMail.com that he has become so frustrated with the authorities doing nothing to solve the problem that he is taking it upon himself.  He says he has noticed a 50 percent spike in shoplifting across his stores in the last year, costing him 'several million' dollars.  In an interview with DailyMail.com on Thursday, Catsimatidis said the thieves are not hungry homeless vagrants in need of meals or basic hygiene products, but are 'professional criminals' who often travel to New York City from other states where they wouldn't get away with the crimes.  'I love New York City and it has got to survive. We have got to put our foot down to make sure that it does survive. Enough is enough,' he said.  Catsimatidis will hire dozens of...

    Delaware, one of the handful of states that still has a mask mandate in place two years after the start of the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, will end the rule this week, Gov. John Carney (D) announced Monday. According to the governor, the statewide indoor mask mandate, which requires individuals kindergarten aged and up to wear a mask regardless of vaccination status, will end Friday, February 11. However, the school mask mandate will not end for nearly two more months, expiring March 31, 2022. According to the state’s website, the governor’s decision to extend the school mask requirement “gives parents time ​to get their school-age children vaccinated before the expiration of the statewide requirement.” “The March 31 date also allows districts and schools time to consider local mask requirements, and gives the Division of Public Health (DPH) and the Department of Education (DOE) time to work with schools on updates to quarantine and contact tracing guidance,” the release reads.

    John Smoltz believes his former Atlanta Braves teammate Fred McGriff should join him in Cooperstown. While Fred McGriff was not elected into the National Baseball Hall of Fame the first time around, his former Atlanta Braves teammate John Smoltz believes “Crime Dog” absolutely belongs in Cooperstown. McGriff fell off the ballot after not getting 75 percent of the vote from 2010 to 2019. The five-time All-Star earned three Silver Sluggers in his career, helping the Team of the 90’s win its lone World Series championship in 1995. McGriff retired from baseball at the age of 40 with 493 home runs, 2,490 hits and 1,550 runs batted in for his hometown Tampa Bay Devil Rays back in 2004. If McGriff hit seven more home runs, he would probably have a plaque in Cooperstown already. Hall of Famer John Smoltz says that undoubtedly former Atlanta teammate Fred McGriff deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. McGriff should be a slam dunk to be elected in December on Todays Game era committee ballot along with 3-time World Series champion manager Bruce Bochy. — Bob...
    New York GOP Rep. John Katko New York Rep. John Katko, one of just nine House Republicans to represent a constituency that also voted for Joe Biden, announced Friday that he would not seek a fifth term in the Syracuse-based 24th Congressional District. Katko last year was also one of the 10 GOP members who voted to impeach Donald Trump, which almost certainly would have ensured him serious opposition in the June primary; two other members of this group, Ohio’s Anthony Gonzalez and Illinois’ Adam Kinzinger are also not running for re-election. It remains to be seen just what will happen to Katko’s constituency. The current version of the 24th backed Biden 53-44 four years, but as Katko’s resilience demonstrates, this area remains quite friendly to Republicans down-ballot. However, no one knows what this district will look like after redistricting, especially since legislative Democrats have the numbers needed to pass their own map. The Democratic primary already consisted of 2020 candidate Francis Conole, Steven Holden, and Air Force veteran Sarah Klee Hood; more will likely take a look now. On...
    PAT SUMMERALL was a former football player who finished off his career as a legendary sports broadcaster. The late athlete worked alongside the recently deceased John Madden. 2Pat Summerall worked closely with John MaddenCredit: AP:Associated Press Who was Pat Summerall? Born on May 10, 1930, Summerall was a Florida native who got his start in sports at a young age. While attending Columbia High School in Lake City, Summerall played football, tennis, baseball, and basketball. The multitalented athlete was later inducted into the Florida High School Athletic Association's Hall of Fame and All American Team. From 1949 until 1951, Summerall played college football for the University of Arkansas Razorbacks. He graduated in 1953, with a major in Russian history. Summerall was a fourth-round pick in the 1952 NFL Draft, joining the Detroit Lions for preseason football before breaking his arm. He was then traded to the Chicago Cardinals (now Arizona), where he played until 1957. From 1958 until 1961, Summerall joined the New York Giants. His broadcasting career began in...

    By JOSH DUBOW John Madden, the Hall of Fame coach turned broadcaster whose exuberant calls combined with simple explanations provided a weekly soundtrack to NFL games for three decades, died Tuesday morning, the NFL said. He was 85. The league said he died unexpectedly and did not detail a cause. Madden gained fame in a decade-long stint as the coach of the renegade Oakland Raiders, making it to seven AFC title games and winning the Super Bowl following the 1976 season. He compiled a 103-32-7 regular-season record, and his .759 winning percentage is the best among NFL coaches with more than 100 games. But it was his work after prematurely retiring as coach at age 42 that made Madden truly a household name. He educated a football nation with his use of the telestrator on broadcasts; entertained millions with his interjections of “Boom!” and “Doink!” throughout games; was an omnipresent pitchman selling restaurants, hardware stores and beer; became the face of “Madden NFL Football,” one of the most successful sports video games of all-time; and was a best-selling author.

                 A complaint filed with Gov. Tony Evers (D) seeks the removal of Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm who approved the low bail for the alleged Waukesha parade killer Darrell Brooks. “The devastation resulting from Chisholm’s dereliction of duty to protect the public has reached outside the borders of Milwaukee County,” the complaint reportedly says. The group has identified themselves as Milwaukee County taxpayers and one of the signers names is Orville Seymer, who is reportedly affiliated with a group called Citizens for Responsible Government. As reported by The Wisconsin Daily Star, “Brooks had just been released days prior to the mass murder on a $1,000 bail following charges of domestic abuse and jumping bail. Wisconsin State Senate President Chris Kapenga (R-Delafield) released a statement about a different letter, sent by Wisconsin lawmakers earlier on in the month. Kapenga said that there was “a bipartisan and unanimous vote by the Joint Committee on Employment Relations to prevent the Milwaukee County District Attorney from receiving a wage increase in light of his failed policies that led to the Waukesha...
    After a lonely sushi night at a Killington, Vermont, hibachi restaurant, longtime CNN senior producer John Griffin slammed his brand new pickup truck into another car while allegedly driving drunk down a two-lane mountainside road, court records show. He vehemently denied drinking, according to the responding officer, but he failed a field sobriety test, and a towing company found empty wine bottles in the truck. It happened roughly a month after police seized his electronics in a child trafficking investigation last year. Federal prosecutors filed charges in that case last week. On Oct. 11, 2020, a Vermont state trooper responded to a report of a two-vehicle crash on Route 100 in Plymouth at around 6 p.m., about 13 miles north of the $2 million ski-in/ski-out cabin that he has now been accused of inviting women and their minor daughters to for sex crimes.

    Will Ferrell's former longtime collaborator Adam McKay has revealed how the pair fell out and ended their friendship.  The duo frequently worked together on huge comedy hits like Anchorman, Step Brothers, The Other Guys, and Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues and even had a production company together.  But in a new interview with Vanity Fair, McKay, 53, admits that things turned sour between the pair when he decided to cast John C. Reilly in a role that Ferrell, 54, wanted, that resulted in them parting ways personally and professionally.  McKay explains in the interview how he was working on an upcoming HBO limited series about the Los Angeles Lakers basketball team in the 1980s - and wanted to cast Reilly, 56, in the lead role to play team owner Jerry Buss.  Formerly close: Will Ferrell's long-time collaborator Adam McKay reveals they fell out after the director casted John C. Reilly in HBO show instead of the Elf star (the pair pictured in 2013) However, McKay admits that he should have handled his decision better, as it was expected by many that...

    Sir Elton John received one of the highest honors from Prince Charles on Wednesday for his contributions to music and charity. A special committee selected John to receive the Companion of Honour award, adding him to a list that can comprise only 65 members at any given time, according to the Associated Press . Other people currently in the club include athlete Sebastian Coe, novelists Margaret Atwood and J.K. Rowling, and environmentalist Sir David Attenborough.

    Artists who delve into matters of the macabre have a two-fold task: usher people to a place they prefer not to venture but a place they like all the same; darken their spirits without leaving them spiritless; unsettle their foundations until they give thanks for having been settled at all. Like a pendulum, the artist swings between two opposing dichotomies, imbibing the best of both until a stable bridge springs forth – a palindrome of equal parts order and disorder. When it comes to the film composer, the macabre can be treacherous terrain. After forging this thing of beauty in a pit of ugliness, the composer must then use it to punctuate a dramatic event. Like a muted Greek chorus, they guide us through the throes of pathos, confidently signaling to us from the wings without ever intruding upon the stage. Too harmonious, the audience will sense manipulation and grow disdainful; too discordant, they sense ineptitude and grow disquieted. With those parameters in mind, several considerations were made when curating the “Top 10 Horror Film Scores of All Time.” 1.) Does...
    New damning developments pertaining to the insurrection on the U.S. Capitol have come to light. According to Washington Post, the latest investigative update involves former President Donald Trump's lawyer John Eastman. The report, written by Washington Post reporters Josh Dawsey, Jacqueline Alemany, Jon Swaine, and Emma Brown, explains how Eastman attempted to build a case to persuade former Vice President Mike Pence to overturn the election. It has been revealed that "even as rioters overran the Capitol and a recalcitrant Pence was forced into hiding, Eastman emailed a Pence aide to actually blame Pence for the scene." At one point, Pence's aide Greg Jacob also became embroiled in a heated exchange with Eastman telling him that "his 'bullshit legal advice was why Pence's team was 'under siege.' An accusation Eastman replied to with a suggestion pushing the blame off on Pence. "The 'siege' is because YOU and your boss did not do what was necessary to allow this [election challenge] to be aired in a public way so that the American people can see for themselves what happened,"...
    CHICAGO (AP) — In the fall of 1976, Carolyn Sanders received an exciting postcard from her brother. “I’ll see you soon cause I love you,” Francis Wayne Alexander — known to his family as Wayne — wrote to his younger sister. She hadn’t spoken with him since his 1975 wedding and hoped the brief note meant he was coming to visit the family on Long Island, New York, for Christmas. It was the final communication Sanders can remember receiving from her brother, who on Monday was confirmed to be among the victims of John Wayne Gacy, who was convicted of killing 33 young men and boys in the Chicago area in the 1970s and was executed in 1994. Alexander’s family spent the next 40-plus years hoping he had a reason for staying away, trying not to linger on the possibilities. Decades without a word didn’t stop the family from wistfully mentioning Alexander, hoping he would call or even show up for a holiday. Sanders typed his name into Facebook from time to time and their brother Richard Clyde...
