Chicago White Sox great Minnie Minoso dies

Minnie Minoso diesIn what has been the cruelest of baseball winters for Chicago, Minnie Minoso, the most popular White Sox player ever as the heart and soul of their “Go-Go Sox” teams of the ‘50s, died Sunday, barely six weeks after the Cubs lost their beloved icon, Ernie Banks.

No one was ever quite sure how old Minoso, the major league’s first black Cuban, actually was but the White Sox said he was 90. He was, however, forever young at heart; one of the most exciting players the game has ever known, with an effervescent personality, a perpetual smile and an insatiable love for life and baseball.

Exxon settlementA long-fought legal battle to recover $8.9 billion in damages from Exxon Mobil Corporation for the contamination and loss of use of more than 1,500 acres of wetlands, marshes, meadows and waters in northern New Jersey has been quietly settled by the state for around $250 million.

The lawsuits, filed by the State Department of Environmental Protection in 2004, had been litigated by the administrations of four New Jersey governors, finally advancing last year to trial. By then, Exxon’s liability was no longer in dispute; the only issue was how much it would pay in damages.

Police shooting of unarmed 17-year-old Colorado girl ruled homicide

Denver A medical examiner's report ruled the death of a 17-year-old girl as a homicide one month after Denver police shot her to death.

Jessica Hernandez was killed on Jan. 26. The Denver Police Department said at the time that she had driven a stolen car at two officers in a dark alleyway, hitting one officer's leg and prompting them to shoot several times.

The autopsy report indicates Hernandez died after suffering four gunshot wounds, with two bullets fatally entering the left side of her torso, hitting her heart and lungs, and another two wounds, possibly from the same bullet, in her pelvis and thigh. Denver Chief Medical Examiner James Caruso, who performed the autopsy, notes there was "no evidence of close range discharge of a firearm associated with any of the entrance wounds."

South Carolina college denounces homosexuality after two volleyball players come out as gay

SC Universtiy denounces gaysErskine College in Due West, S.C., describes itself as a “liberal arts” institution, but as far as that freedom applies to the hearts and minds of its students, it seems limited.

In response to two male athletes on its volleyball team coming out in an article published on OutSports.com last year, the college, which is aligned with the Associate Reformed Presbyterian tradition, released a strongly worded denouncement of homosexuality on campus that many read to be a behavioral ban. The document, titled “Statement on Human Sexuality,” was submitted by the Student Services and Athletic Committee and adopted by the board of trustees last Friday.

The situation soon escalated into a riot, with inmates setting fire to some of the tents and at least three injuries. Guards used tear gas to quell the uprising.

A day later, the federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) said the Willacy facility, which houses mostly undocumented immigrants — many held for illegal border crossing and low-level offenses — was uninhabitable and its 2,800 prisoners would be moved to other facilities.
