TYLER (AP) – An East Texas family’s dog that ran away seven years ago has been found in Tacoma, Washington, and returned thanks to a microchip implanted in the pooch. Dinah Miller of Tyler traveled to Houston on Tuesday to reclaim her Maltese named Reese. Miller says her family was visiting relatives near Dallas in 2007 when Reese got loose. The Millers received a call last weekend that their dog was found on a road in Tacoma and a veterinarian discovered the microchip with the contact information. Meanwhile, Kelli Davis of Spanaway, Washington, says her family adopted the dog at a shelter in Mesquite, Texas, about six years ago. The Davis family later moved to Washington.

General: Guard to Take Observation Role at Border

Posted/updated on: July 23, 2014 at 11:22 am

John Nichols-Texas National GuardMcALLEN (AP) — A top National Guard general says most of the 1,000 troops heading to South Texas will take up observation positions along the border and detain people only if they interfere with their mission. Texas Adjutant General John Nichols told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the troops will help deter illicit traffic amid a record spike of unaccompanied minors crossing the border. Republican Governor Rick Perry announced the Guard’s involvement Monday. Nichols says troops will be armed for their safety. They will try to avoid detaining people and instead refer people to state troopers. State troopers could arrest people for a state crime or call Border Patrol if they entered the country illegally. Nichols says training begins immediately to cover scenarios such as immigrant children turning themselves in.

The suspect in a capital murder case had been spraying bullets Tuesday night outside the house in the Rio Grande Valley town of La Joya. Hidalgo County Sheriff Eddie Guerra said the man was silenced Tuesday evening after officers rammed the front door, inserted tear gas and exchanged fire. Guerra said the man is “presumed dead” but that won’t be confirmed until a bomb squad clears the house of booby-trapped explosives the man said he’d rigged. Police say the two wounded officers and six others pinned down by gunfire have been rescued.

State District Judge Rick Magnis has signed an order scheduling condemned inmate Donald Newbury, 52, for lethal injection on February 4. Newbury and six other convicts engineered the biggest prison escape in Texas history when they broke out of a South Texas prison in December 2000. Eleven days later, on Christmas Eve, they killed Irving officer Aubrey Hawkins while robbing a sporting goods store in the Dallas suburb. When the gang was captured in Colorado a month later, one member committed suicide as police closed in. The six others all received death sentences for Hawkins’ slaying. Two of them have been executed. At the time of the escape, Newbury was serving 99 years for aggravated robbery.

Yankees Beat Rangers 2-1

Posted/updated on: July 22, 2014 at 11:41 pm

Chase Headley came through with a storybook swing at the stroke of midnight in his Yankees debut, hitting a game-winning single in the 14th inning to give New York a 2-1 victory over the Texas Rangers on Tuesday night.

Derek Jeter broke Lou Gehrig’s franchise record for doubles, and the Yankees won an unlikely pitching duel after both rookie starters entered with a 5.10 ERA.

J.P. Arencibia snapped a scoreless tie with a leadoff homer in the 13th against New York reliever David Huff, but the Yankees responded with Brett Gardner’s leadoff double and Jacoby Ellsbury’s tying single off closer Joakim Soria in the bottom half.

Most seats were empty by the time Brian Roberts doubled with one out in the 14th off Nick Tepesch (3-6), who threw 99 pitches over 4 1/3 innings during Sunday’s start in Toronto. Roberts was held at third on Francisco Cervelli’s single before Headley looped a single to left-center just as the clock struck midnight.

Acquired from San Diego in a trade before the game, Headley raised one arm as he ran to first and was soon mobbed by his happy new teammates. He was doused with a sports drink by Gardner during a postgame television interview.

“Unbelievable,” Headley said. “I’m excited to be here. I can’t wait to help, and just to be a part of this great franchise.” Read more …

Former Cowboys FB Newhouse dies at 64

Posted/updated on: July 22, 2014 at 11:41 pm

By Jean-Jacques Taylor | ESPNDallas.com

Robert Newhouse, responsible for one of the iconic plays in Dallas Cowboys history, died Tuesday after a long illness. Newhouse was 64.

Rodd Newhouse told the television station that his father was surrounded by his wife and four children at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, when he died from the effects of heart disease.

He had been in declining health since suffering a stroke in 2010.

Newhouse, a Longview, Texas, native, played fullback for the Cowboys from 1972 to 1983.

He helped Tom Landry win his second Super Bowl with a memorable play against the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl X.

With about seven minutes left, Newhouse took a handoff from Roger Staubach and headed left. Suddenly, he pulled up and lofted a pass to receiver Golden Richards just over the outstretched arm of a Denver defender to give the Cowboys their final points in a 27-10 victory. Read more …

Judge denies McClain’s request to delay trial

Posted/updated on: July 22, 2014 at 11:43 pm

An Alabama judge has denied a motion from Dallas linebacker Rolando McClain to delay his trial because of training camp.

Decatur Municipal Court Clerk Jessica Haggard said Tuesday that Judge Bill Cook Jr. declined to push back the trial set for Friday on charges of resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. McClain’s local attorney, Carl Cole, had filed a motion to reschedule because the Cowboys start camp on Thursday.

McClain was with the Cowboys when they arrived in Oxnard, California, on Tuesday. He wasn’t available for comment, and it wasn’t immediately clear how the team planned to handle a possible trip to Alabama.

Dallas acquired the rights to McClain from Baltimore on July 1. He was the eighth overall pick by Oakland out of Alabama in 2010 but had retired and hasn’t played since 2012.

Haggard says the case had been postponed three times since McClain’s arrest in April 2013.

It was his third arrest in Decatur since 2011.

McClain has played in 41 games over three seasons.

Cuban: Mavs might hold on to $2.7M exception

Posted/updated on: July 22, 2014 at 11:43 pm

By Tim MacMahon | ESPNDallas.com

DALLAS — The Dallas Mavericks are in discussions with a couple of candidates for their $2.7 million cap-room exception, but owner Mark Cuban made it clear that the team isn’t desperate to fill that slot this summer.

“We’re talking to a couple of players, but it’s one of those things that if we don’t get the right player, we’ll just hold it so that during the season when a player gets cut, we’ll have that opportunity to offer,” Cuban said during a Tuesday appearance on ESPN Dallas 103.3 FM’s “Fitzsimmons and Friedo.”

There has been mutual interest between the Mavs and guard Mo Williams throughout the free-agency period. However, Williams has offers for more than the $2.7 million salary the Mavs can offer, sources said.

A source also told ESPNDallas.com recently that Williams wasn’t the Mavs’ top target for their $2.7 million exception, declining to elaborate on the player who is a higher priority. (Jameer Nelson?)

If the Mavs opt not to use the exception this summer, they’d be positioned to outbid many teams for veteran players who receive midseason buyouts. That is how the Mavs acquired swingman Corey Brewer during the 2011 title season.

Sources: Mavs hosting free agent PG Nelson

Posted/updated on: July 22, 2014 at 11:42 pm

By Marc Stein | ESPN.com

The Dallas Mavericks will host free agent Jameer Nelson on a recruiting visit Thursday, as part of ongoing negotiations with the former Orlando Magic point guard, according to sources close to the situation.

Sources told ESPN.com that the Mavericks are bringing Nelson to town in hopes of finally closing a deal with him, as Dallas continues to pursue a veteran point guard to help fill the void created by Jose Calderon’s exit in June.

The Mavericks had to part with Calderon to reacquire center Tyson Chandler in a trade with the New York Knicks. Since then, they have been chasing Nelson and fellow veteran Mo Williams to give coach Rick Carlisle another trusted ballhandler.

Longtime Maverick Devin Harris is the projected starter at the point, after he landed a new, four-year deal worth more than $16 million this month. Newly acquired point guard Raymond Felton and second-year point guard Gal Mekel are also on Dallas’ roster, but the Mavericks have made the signing of another point guard their priority, if they are to spend the $2.7 million room exception they still have at their disposal.

Rangers put C Soto (groin) on disabled list

Posted/updated on: July 22, 2014 at 11:45 pm

By Calvin Watkins | ESPNDallas.com

NEW YORK — The Texas Rangers’ projected opening day catcher is on the shelf again.

Geovany Soto was placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday afternoon with tightness in his right groin. Soto suffered the injury running the bases in Monday’s 4-2 victory over the New York Yankees.

Soto started the season on the DL when he underwent surgery to repair a torn lateral meniscus cartilage in his right knee in spring training.

“It’s frustrating,” Soto said. “I was out with the knee surgery and to comeback work, really, really hard to come back and do everything and more to be ready, it’s frustrating. All I can do is do whatever the doctors tell me to do and work hard and come back. Some things you can’t control.”

Last weekend, the Rangers had four catchers on the active roster.

Manager Ron Washington said Robinson Chirinos and Chris Gimenez will be the main catchers with J.P. Arencibia serving as the emergency catcher. Arencibia will mainly play first base the rest of the season.

“Feel real bad, he worked his butt off to get back and he was starting to be productive for us,” Washington said of Soto, who hit .364 in four games with three starts at catcher. “And he’s done a great job with our pitching staff since he’s been back. It’s going to be a blow.”

Strong offseason fueling Brandon Weeden

Posted/updated on: July 18, 2014 at 10:44 am

By Todd Archer | ESPNDallas.com

IRVING, Texas – Brandon Weeden’s bid to be the Dallas Cowboys’ No. 2 quarterback in 2014 got a lot easier when the club decided to release Kyle Orton.

Barring something unforeseen, Weeden, who signed a two-year deal in the offseason, will be Tony Romo’s backup. But Weeden does not look at the move as “weight off my shoulders.”

“Given the situation Kyle has been in in previous years in Dallas, he’s been the backup quarterback, so I think if he was there it would be one more obstacle I would have to kind of hurdle,” Weeden said. “But at the same time I can’t really get wrapped up in putting all of my attention on that. I need to do what I did in the [organized team activities] and continue to play well and get better. I think hopefully things will work out that way regardless.”

The Cowboys felt confident enough to jettison Orton, who skipped the entire offseason program and minicamp, in part because of what Weeden did in the spring. With Romo recovering from back surgery and being kept out of competitive drills and Orton missing, Weeden took all of the first-team snaps.

“I think the reps I got in the OTAs were kind of irreplaceable,” Weeden said. “If I was in a situation where God forbid something happened to Tony and I’m asked to play, those are the guys I’m going to battle with, so those reps I got were invaluable. I know I won’t get many of those in [training] camp, but fortunately I had 12 practices where I was able to get out with those guys. Now it’s, ‘Let’s get to work.’ I’m ready to get to California and get things rolling.”

Orton had the same benefit last year of taking all of the offseason snaps in 2013 as Romo recovered from surgery to remove a cyst from his back. When Romo hurt his back in Week 16 against the Washington Redskins, he was able to step into the season finale against the Philadelphia Eagles and play well. He completed 30 of 46 passes for 358 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions, but a late turnover sealed the Cowboys’ loss.

“[Gavin] Escobar and [Jason] Witten are two totally different players. Dez [Bryant] and Terrance [Williams] are two totally different players,” Weeden said. “You kind of learn what certain guys’ strengths are and little nuances of what they do. That’s the thing more than anything. You kind of get a feel for what Dez likes on fades and all that stuff a certain way where Terrance might like it another way. You’ve got to learn what each guy likes. When you’re with so many new guys it takes time. You always want more time, but it’s nice to have the reps I did get there to get a head start.”

Mavs void Rashard Lewis contract

Posted/updated on: July 23, 2014 at 12:19 pm

By Tim MacMahon | ESPNDallas.com

DALLAS — The Dallas Mavericks voided the contract for Rashard Lewis after discovering that the veteran forward needed surgery on his right knee.”It came to our attention during Rashard Lewis’ physical that he is in need of a medical procedure on his right knee,” Mavs president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson said in a statement released by the team. “We wish him all the best for a speedy recovery and continued success in his remarkable career.”

Lewis signed a one-year contract for the veteran’s minimum with the Mavs last week.

Agent Tony Dutt said they aren’t certain yet about the severity of the injury or how long Lewis will be sidelined.

The Mavs signed the 34-year-old Lewis, a 16-year veteran, to back up Dirk Nowitzki at power forward. The two-time All-Star averaged 4.5 points and 1.8 rebounds in 16.2 minutes per game for the Miami Heat last season, primarily coming off the bench.

Felton pleads guilty in NYC gun case

Posted/updated on: July 23, 2014 at 10:51 am

Associated Press

NEW YORK — Dallas Mavericks point guard Raymond Felton pleaded guilty Wednesday in a New York gun case, taking a plea deal that involved admitting a felony but spares him jail.

Felton pleaded guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of a firearm. He admitted he knowingly had a large-capacity ammunition magazine and a pistol without a license.

“Are those charges true?” Manhattan state Supreme Court Justice Larry Stephen asked.

“Yes, sir,” Felton said, later adding in a soft voice, “I apologize.”

He was immediately sentenced to 500 hours of community service and ordered to pay a $5,000 fine. Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Jonathan Rebold said Felton will be allowed to do the service outside New York.

If he complies, the case will be closed without jail time or probation.

Felton has said the Manhattan district attorney’s office, which had outlined the agreement in court last month, was fair to him.

The criminal case arose last winter, as Felton grappled with the breakup of his marriage and navigated a struggling season with the New York Knicks. He was traded to Dallas last month, two days after his plea plan was announced.

About a week after Felton’s law student wife filed for divorce, her attorney brought a loaded semi-automatic handgun to a police precinct and said it was Felton’s and she wanted it out of the house, authorities said. Felton’s lawyer, Jim Walden, has said Felton never threatened anyone with the gun.

After police contacted Felton, he turned himself in shortly after a Mavericks-Knicks game at Madison Square Garden.

Felton was charged under a state law that bans many large-capacity ammunition magazines. Prosecutors said Felton’s could hold about 20 rounds.

The NBA has said it is monitoring the case. The league usually waits until criminal cases against players are resolved before deciding whether to impose any fine or suspension.

Felton, 30, was a star at the University of North Carolina and was the fifth pick of the 2005 NBA draft. Besides Dallas and New York, he’s played for the Charlotte Bobcats, Denver Nuggets and Portland Trail Blazers.

Last season, Felton missed 17 games while battling injuries and averaged a career-low 9.7 points as the Knicks went 37-45 and missed the playoffs.
