    Empire actor Jussie Smollett was flanked by bodyguards as he walked out of Cook County Jail in Illinois late Wednesday night on a $150,000 bond, followed by his attorneys saying there is “no room for politics in our court system.” Smollett’s attorneys praised the Illinois appeals court that ruled Smollett should be released on bond pending an appeal of his guilty verdict for staging a hate crime, but they argued he was unfairly sentenced twice, having already paid a $10,000 fine and performed community service. "At each of those steps, I wondered to myself whether Chicago had seceded from the Union because in this country, you cannot punish a person twice," said attorney Nenye Uche. “People were not focused on the constitutionality of the prosecution, and we’ve been trying to tell everyone that. It is unconstitutional to charge someone twice.” Uche added that the six days that Smollett spent behind bars did not break him, but he struggled. "The first thing Jussie did was … he pushed his hands on the glass, and...
    Although President Joe Biden promised to deliver 500 million free rapid COVID tests to Americans in a speech on Tuesday, the tests may not come in time to suppress the enormous spread of the Omicron variant predicted in the coming weeks. The Biden administration has yet to actually sign a contract to buy the tests, and the website to order them will not be up until January, The New York Times reported.  It is not even known how many tests will be immediately available or how quickly they can be shipped out to American homes, all while the most recent estimates of the Omicron spread predict more than 2 million new cases a day throughout January.  'That's not a plan - it's a hope,' Jennifer Nuzzo, an epidemiologist at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, told The Times.  'If those tests came in January and February, that could have an impact, but if they are spread out over 10 to 12 months, I'm not sure what kind of impact it is going to have.'  Biden's scramble to boost...
    More from: Mike Vaccaro James Dolan bloodbath a harsh reminder for Rangers, Knicks The two sides of Nets Steve Nash as playoffs loom Weve never seen anything like Derrick Roses second Knicks act Yankees 2017 loss to Astros one of NY baseball’s biggest what-ifs Now the Knicks fun really starts It isn’t just that Giancarlo Stanton is swinging a smoking-hot bat now, or that he looks utterly impossible to retire at the plate, or that he is playing with the kind of swagger he used to have in surplus back when he terrorized the National League in the Miami baseball witness protection program. Stanton, right now, can serve a higher purpose. A unifying element, if you will. Because as bad as things are going for Francisco Lindor on the other side of town — and make no mistake they are bad; his hitting woes officially bled into the field Wednesday afternoon, so he’s also costing the Mets runs now, not just failing to create them — he isn’t the first to pass through unforgiving corridors of baseball struggle.

    PORT ST. LUCIE — Jonathan Villar’s groin soreness has limited his movement lately, but the Mets are still hopeful he will be part of the Opening Day roster. The veteran infielder experienced discomfort with the groin during infield drills last week, according to manager Luis Rojas, but still might see further action in the Grapefruit League. “There is a possibility he is in there Monday,” Rojas said after the Mets’ 8-3 victory over the Astros on Saturday. Rojas said the preference is to let Villar start a game, giving him proper time to warm up. The manager said he isn’t thinking in terms of the injured list for Villar, who gives the Mets depth at second base, shortstop and third base. Villar will possibly take batting practice Sunday to test the groin. “He’s responded real well to the day-to-day treatment,” Rojas said. “When you have things pop up this late in camp, you want to be cautious. We want to leave ready, but at the same time we want to leave healthy.” Jonathan VillarGetty Images The 39-year-old Rojas said he...
    While independent restaurants are struggling, with little hope of relief from Washington D.C. (which hasn't gotten any closer to signing a new pandemic relief bill), big restaurant chains are on the move in the south suburbs.  Eddie V's Prime Seafood opened this week in Greenwood Village, bringing a new concept to town from the Darden Group, which also runs Olive Garden, Yard House, Capital Grille and Bahama Breeze, among others. The spacious seafood house is just four miles up I-25 from the similarly named but completely unrelated Eddie Merlot's Prime Aged Beef & Seafood. Along with seafood, live music and cocktails, Eddie V's notes that "through its Harvest Program, the restaurant prepares its surplus food that is not served to guests for donation to Covenant Cupboard Food Pantry." In Wheat Ridge, the lease is ending at the five-year-old Four Seasons Farmers and Artisans Market, at 7043 West 38th Avenue, so the market has decide to close permanently. Shoppers have until October 31 to pick up their winter squash and other fall produce. After that, owners Dick and Margaret Barkey will...
    The northern Colorado alt-rock band Holdfast hasn't let COVID-19 stop its creativity. With a new single coming out October 16 and a new album in January, the group has been keeping busy. The family trio comprises brothers Tommy Maddocks and Mikey Maddocks and their cousin Charlie Maddocks; the three have made a name for themselves over the years, and recently signed with a U.K. audio network called eOne. The partnership will allow their music to be picked up commercially, a huge step that inspired Tommy and Charlie to drop out of Colorado State University to devote themselves completely to the band. "Ever since we got the deal with the audio network, Charlie and I thought it would be best to focus," Tommy says.Related Stories Record Thieves Long for the Raw Energy of an Actual Punk Show Barbara Jo Kammer and the Hippie Buckaroos Bring Hope to Seniors Kendra & the Bunnies Hops Back to Colorado to Celebrate a New Album During time at home during the pandemic, they wrote nine songs, and they're releasing a new track, "The...
