|Katrina anniversary brings tears, gratitude to tiny Mississippi town||Encarnacion hits 3 HRs, 9 RBIs as Blue Jays rout Tigers (Yahoo Sports)|
|While the narrative for New Orleans after a decade has become one of rebirth and renewal, the same cannot be said for small Pearlington, Miss. that saw just as much devastation. Many here acknowledge that Pearlington may physically never be the same. But just as Katrina broke their buildings, townspeople say one unexpected positive note is that the unity required for the recovery also broke a longstanding racial divide.|
Edwin Encarnacion found a grand way to cap off his homer hat trick. Encarnacion hit three home runs, prompting Toronto fans to toss their hats onto the field, and tied a team record with nine RBIs as the high-scoring Blue Jays routed the Detroit Tigers 15-1 Saturday. ''He's some kind of locked in,'' manager John Gibbons said.
|Republican Christie proposes tracking immigrants like FedEx packages||Spa Stunner! American Pharoah loses in Travers to Keen Ice (Yahoo Sports)|
(Reuters) - New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said on Saturday if he were elected president he would combat illegal immigration by creating a system to track foreign visitors the way FedEx tracks packages. Christie, who is well back in the pack seeking the Republican nomination for president, told a campaign event in the early voting state of New Hampshire that he would ask FedEx Chief Executive Officer Fred Smith to devise the tracking system. Immigration has become a top issue in the Republican campaign, with front-runner Donald Trump vowing to deport all of the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants and to build a wall along the southern border.
The day after American Pharoah won the Belmont Stakes and became the first Triple Crown winner in 37 years, trainer Bob Baffert already was leery of Saratoga in the summer. The track lived up to its reputation as the ''Graveyard of Favorites'' when 16-1 long shot Keen Ice held off American Pharoah by three-quarters of a length in the $1.6 million Travers Stakes - a result that seems almost unfathomable. ''I feel bad for the horse getting beat like that,'' a disappointed trainer Bob Baffert said.
|Man charged with murder in ambush of Houston area deputy||Falcons announce 5-year contract extension for Julio Jones (Yahoo Sports)|
HOUSTON (AP) — A sheriff's deputy in uniform was shot and killed Friday night while filling up his patrol car at a suburban Houston gas station, according to authorities.
The Atlanta Falcons agreed to a $71.25 million, five-year contract extension with Julio Jones on Saturday that compares favorably with recent deals paid to other top wide receivers. Owner Arthur Blank recently said an agreement would come soon, and he has consistently said he wants Jones to play his full career with the Falcons. ''We could not be more thrilled to make Julio a Falcon for life,'' Blank said in a statement released by the team.
|Sarah Palin gushes over Donald Trump in highly-anticipated interview||Lawyer: Tony Stewart's response to lawsuit 'appalling' (Yahoo Sports)|
Attorney Mark Lanier said Saturday in an email that Kevin Ward Jr. was killed last year as he walked on a dirt track in upstate New York even though Stewart is one of the world's best drivers. Ward's family sued Stewart this month for unspecified damages, accusing Stewart of gross negligence in the August 2014 accident at Canandaigua Motorsports Park. Stewart's lawyer, Brian Gwitt, said in court papers Friday that Ward was impaired by marijuana and died because he exited his car during the race.
|Ten years later, resilient New Orleans reflects on Katrina||Redskins' LT Trent Williams agrees to new 5-year contract (Yahoo Sports)|
From the Lower Ninth Ward to the Super Dome, New Orleans launched a day of events on Saturday to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, paying tribute to its victims and homage to the city's resilience in the face of disaster. Dignitaries made speeches to honor the 1,500 who died, brass bands marched through the streets and neighbors gathered for block parties across the city, where the mood shifted in turns from somber to reflective to celebratory. While residents and visitors alike said it was difficult to deny the rebound that New Orleans has made, there was also recognition that the poorest areas, like the Lower Ninth, have lagged.
Washington Redskins left tackle Trent Williams agreed to terms Saturday on a new five-year contract that comes with $32 million in guaranteed money. Williams' agent, Vincent Taylor, said Williams will receive an $8.5 million signing bonus. Taylor said the contract is the largest in NFL history for an offensive tackle.

Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One
Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nation’s military, the mind’s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagon’s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.
Living Wages Are A Global Problem
The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.
Ukraine: Not What It Seems
After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.
In a Five to Four Decision, Voting Just Got Harder
In a five to four decision along party lines, the Supreme Court ruled on the controversial Shelby County v. Holder case. The ruling, believed by many sets the nation back decades in Civil Rights, while others see it as the fault of Congress dropping the ball on updating the act when it should have years ago.
Coup Or Civil War In Egypt
The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
