Custom Bob Hayes Jersey Large

A 15-year-old boy was shot multiple times on Tonya Drive in La Vergne around 11:30 p.m. on Dec. 14.

The victim described the suspect as a light-skinned black male. The victim remained in a hospital the following day to be treated for his injuries. A police spokesperson said the department had no other updates on his condition.

The teen was approached by the suspect. A few minutes later, the suspect fired multiple shots at the victim. The La Vergne Police Department acquired two security camera pictures of the suspect.

The La Vergne Police Department is seeking any information about the shooting. Anyone with information can call the La Vergne Police at (615) 793-7744 or the Rutherford County Crime Stoppers at (615) 893-7867. Callers can remain anonymous.

“We seem to be having an increase in juvenile crime here,” La Vergne Police Sgt. Bob Hayes said. “The increase started over the summer and has continued on into the holiday season, unfortunately.”

Custom Billy Wilson Jersey Large

A newly unearthed photo of Billy the Kid is expected to make one family fabulously wealthy. There may be no more infamous symbol of the American West in the 19th century than Billy the Kid. He went by William H. Bonney, although he was born Henry McCarty in New York to Irish immigrants. He has been part of the romanticized, outlaw image of the Old West for well over a century; his end at the hands of a friend is a famous tale that has morphed into legend.

That notoriety did not escape the notice of Hollywood, of course. A quick online search reveals more than 50 films in which Billy the Kid is either the main character or a secondary one. His last days have been the central narrative of many of them, including “Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid,” a 1973 film by director Sam Peckinpah that endures as a classic among fans of the genre. So attracted are Americans to the story that the latter movie even features singer-songwriter Bob Dylan, who finally got his chance to play an outlaw on screen — a boyhood fantasy, he said at the time.

But images of the real Billy are few and far between, because his last day was in 1881, long before photography came into its own as a popular art form. Images in those days were captured on tin, thin sheets of the metal that rarely endured.

There was currently one confirmed image of Billy the Kid, with another alleged one. Recently, however, a second confirmed image has popped up. This rare picture of Billy the Kid playing cards at a table has surfaced and is going up for auction in Texas. It is expected to fetch $1 million (USD) when it goes on the block, perhaps more.

The 1877 photo in question was handed down through the family of one of Bonney’s cowboy friends, David Anderson, who rode under the name of Billy Wilson. The family says Bonney gave the photograph to Wilson, who’s widow in turn gave it to their grandfather, and they have kept it within their ranks for more than a century. It has never been made public before now.

Tomas Anderson II recently explained to the Irish Central news website how his family came to own the one-of-a-kind picture. “When my family went to pay their respects to the widow of David Anderson at his 1918 funeral, she gifted him with, among other items, a small leather family photo album. “She explained to my grandfather’s family about the history of the photo, and how Billy had gifted the photo to her husband.”

So a second confirmed picture of Billy the Kid (second from left) has emerged. That’s incredible considering for over a century there was only one confirmed picture. Turns out a family had this in their possession the entire time and kept it quiet. Amazing. pic.twitter.com/EyBFnKXEz0

According to the auction house, Sofe Design Auctions of Richardson, near Dallas, there is no doubt about the photo’s authenticity. “This is historically important,” a spokesman told the Irish Central, “incredibly rare and one of a kind. It also possesses meticulous and irrefutable Anderson family provenance dating back three generations.” Furthermore, the photo has been verified by the Eastman Museum in Texas.

The picture shows Billy playing cards, presumably poker, with three other men from his gang. The Kid is wearing his distinctive top hat and waist coat, and looks more like a teenager than an outlaw. He was just 21 years old when Pat Garrett finally caught up to him.

Garrett was sheriff of Lincoln County, although he and Bonney are said to have been friends in childhood. Lore has it that when Garrett took on the mantle of sheriff, he urged his friend to get away from town, but “the Kid” refused. Soon, the sheriff did what he was supposed to do, and arrested Bonney.

The outlaw, however, didn’t remain in jail long. He soon broke out but didn’t get far; Garrett tracked him down and, as the story goes, shot his friend in the back.

Why Americans hold such fascination with the story of Billy the Kid is difficult to pin down; it is partly people’s romantic notions of the Old West at play, and partly a collective love for antiheroes. Their myths about the “wild west” factor into it as well. Their admiration for those who live outside the law while at the same time holding them accountable is a paradox of the American psyche, too.

Whatever the reason, this photo of Billy the Kid, and any others like it that may surface in days to come, will make rich the family about to sell it. That was something the Kid himself never achieved; in spite of his lawlessness, he didn’t manage to hang on to the money he “earned.” He was a poor man, leaving behind only a rich legacy that others continue to ponder, and be fascinated by.

Custom Arnaz Battle Jersey Large

This week, we’re taking a look at our favorite players from the Ty Willingham era. Even though Ty was an overall terrible head coach, there were definitely some studs that played for him in his 3 years. Some were his players that succeeded under Weis, and some were recruited by Davie that came on the scene later. My favorite player is one of those Davie guys that had a breakout year with Ty. Because of that breakout year, that is why I include him on this.

Arnaz Battle was a wide receiver that had 5 years with the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. He actually was recruited and started off as a quarterback, but switched to wide receiver and kick returner for the 2001 and 2002 seasons. He actually didn’t have too many years of filling the stat sheets, having only 1 major season. He was a presence at QB and in the backfield, but he really broke out during that 1 season at WR when he had over 1000 all-purpose yards.

Why should you remember Arnaz Battle? Well, he only had 6 career TDs, but he had 2 of the most memorable ones for me as a young fan. See, 2002 was really the first full season that I watched for the Fighting Irish. That was the beginning of my true and passionate fandom. Arnaz gave me 2 great memories:

This one, to beat MSU, when it seemed all hope was lost:

These calls from Brent Musberger and then the great Tony Roberts are just unmatched…Holy Rudy, you definitely can’t beat that!

And also this one, helping us realize Arnaz was a road warrior:

That mocking tomahawk chop is the absolute best. Also the first play from scrimmage too, which helped spark the team to win.

Thank you, Arnaz, for your memories, and for probably making me realize my favorite number was 3.

Custom Alyn Beals Jersey Large

Aradio sports anchor and an international climate change economist will be the newest members of the Kennedy Middle School Hall of Fame after ceremonies beginning at 7 p.m. March 21 at the school’s Gary Beban Gymnasium.

The induction, open to the public, will honor Steve Bitker, the morning-drive sports anchor at KCBS since joining the San Francisco Bay Area station 18 years ago, and Carter Brandon, for 23 years a World Bank economist working to focus global attention on adapting to climate change. Bitker and Brandon, both 1967 graduates of Kennedy, will share the speaker’s platform with Beban, the 1965 winner of the Heisman Trophy, awarded to the nation’s top college football player.

Bitker has been the morning-drive sports anchor at KCBS since joining the station in April 1991 and has won many broadcasting awards. He is the author of “The Original San Francisco Giants” (Sports Publishing Inc.), which profiles every player of that 1958 team.

Brandon held leading positions at the World Bank in its environment, agriculture, social, poverty and climate change sectors. He moved in February to the World Resources Institute to work with the Global Commission on Climate Change Adaptation, led by former U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, Bill Gates and Kristalina Georgieva, World Bank CEO. For good measure, he’s a Rhodes Scholar and played bassoon in the Paris Symphony in 1972.

The Hall of Fame, one of the few in the country for a middle school, was founded in 2001 by physical education teacher Bret Baird, with Beban, former White House Press Secretary Mike McCurry and former Redwood City Mayor Daniela Gasparini among the first of 24 members representing success in a variety of professions. Several of them will be at the March 21 ceremony, Baird said.

His message to current Kennedy students: “This could be you!”

“It’s always a fun community event,” Baird said. “There is audience participation and entertainment by school music groups.”

NOW IT CAN BE TOLD: Diana Reddy, who won a hotly and closely contested race for Redwood City City Council last November, got her start as a candidate at a very early age indeed. At a January event at the home of Alyn Beals, Jr., Reddy disclosed the details of their early childhood education in politics. Both were in the sixth grade at Lincoln School running for student body offices. His presidential slogan was “Don’t Be Heels, Vote for Beals,” which took him to victory.

Her campaign slogan for vice president was “Don’t Be a Banana, Vote for Diana.” That one didn’t seem to have as much a-peel and she lost.

Lincoln School, by the way, was located at Whipple Avenue and Oakdale Street and was razed in 1974 because of … declining enrollment.

Sound familiar?

CONGRATS: Congratulations to Redwood City resident Bill Schulte, a long-time volunteer with Sustainable San Mateo County, who will receive the organization’s Ruth Peterson Award at its 20th annual award dinner on April 4. A 55-year county resident, Schulte has been involved with SSMC for more than 13 years, serving on the board from 2006 and as its chair from 2008 to 2014.

REDWOOD SHORES CONTEST: Residents and workers from Redwood Shores have an opportunity to enter a contest about something that promises to be exciting – and boring too. Silicon Valley Clean Water, a multi-city agency that operates the wastewater facility on Radio Road, has a major project underway to replace and rehabilitate the entire conveyance system that serves much of southern San Mateo County. Part of the project includes building three miles of tunnel to the treatment plant. A huge Tunnel Boring Machine (aka a TBM) will be arriving in July, which will dig out the tunnel and install a new pipeline underground, sparing everyone the prolonged disruption and delays that would occur with open-cut trenching along Redwood Shores Parkway. The tunneling will occur up to 60 feet below the busy arterial.

Tradition dictates that a TBM can’t begin work until it has been named, a sign of good luck for the project ahead. The TBM that will be deployed in Redwood Shores can be named after a real or fictitious person, character, or thing, and the name should be reflective of SVCW’s mission. Besides getting the winning name displayed on the TBM, the winner will get a rare opportunity for the ultimate Redwood Shores underground tour – inside the TBM.

The contest is open to Redwood Shores residents and workers 18 and older. For complete rules and information, go to https://svcw-rescu.org.

In a similar contest, the name “Chessie” was selected for a project at Chesapeake Bay, Virginia. The abolitionist Harriet Tubman, who helped rescue fugitive slaves via the Underground Railroad, has been honored at least twice with TBMs called “Harriet.” In Fort Wayne, Indiana, the name “MaMaJo” was created from the first two letters of the city’s three rivers.

Custom Nick Bosa Jersey Large

Defensive end Nick Bosa has unfortunately been out of action with a hamstring injury for most of his early scheduled practices with the San Francisco 49ers, but at least he’s been making a good impression while doing what he can from the sidelines.

Bosa joined the 49ers on April 25 when they made him their selection with the second overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft. He then was forced to the sidelines on May 21 when he strained his hamstring during the team’s second OTA (Organized Team Activities) practice of the spring. Despite the injury keeping him out until the start of training camp in late July, Bosa has managed to shine nonetheless, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.

“For not being out there very much, I’ve been very impressed,” Shanahan told reporters Tuesday. “He’s been one of the guys. He’s not too loud, doesn’t try to stand out but also doesn’t sit there and hide in the corner. He’s one of the guys. I think he’s fit in very well. I think he’s very attentive in his meetings. I think he enjoys football. He’s not a guy who’s falling asleep in the meetings just because he can’t practice that day. He enjoys watching it. He enjoys watching other people and learning from other people. He’s been handling himself great so far.”

What’s Bosa been doing to improve while out with his injury? Defensive line coach Kris Kocurek spelled that out while speaking to reporters on May 29.

“Every mental rep that he can get, put yourself in the play from the play call, try to get him the play call, he knows what it is, he sees the formation, sees where he would line up, get on his keys and see how he would react to the situation like he was in there,” Kocurek said. “And then a bunch of work behind closed doors in the film room, getting with him on the board, watching practice, watching some of my stuff from previous years, watching some of the guys, studying them as much as he possibly can. As much mental work as he can possibly get right now, we’re utilizing.”

It would have obviously been an ideal situation for Bosa to stay healthy throughout the remainder of the spring workout schedule, as it would have helped him get his feet wet from a practice perspective while also giving him a chance to get some work in after missing much of his 2018 season at Ohio State due to core muscle surgery. But once he returns, Shanahan expects Bosa will be able to pick things up quickly due in part to the position he plays.

“Yeah, definitely,” Shanahan said. “I think there’s not as many variables that go into it. You’ve got to beat the guy in front of you. If you don’t know what you’re doing but you beat the guy in front of you every single time, you’re going to be alright, where there is more to that at another position. Everybody wants to be out there and get reps – that’s what you need to get better – but we’ll get him healthy and it’ll make him hopefully better for him to get reps at training camp.”
