"You look at the guy throughout his career at Rice, there's not a guy that teams are more scared of to put on because he gets on and gets in. It's just unbelievable. Lightning in baseball cleats, Phillip reached base four times and scored three runs while Hesslink went the distance to tame top-seeded Champlain Valley on Saturday as No. 2 Rice scrapped its way to a 5-2 victory in eight innings at Centennial... That title-winning formula that Rice (18-2) took 50 years to find before breaking through on the same stage a year ago. Table-setters like Phillip (2-for-2) getting on base to wreak havoc, Hesslink and the defense applying the clamps and the Green Knights tossing their gloves and hats skyward after the final out. "We have a simple recipe and we're not going to hide from anybody and we're not going to change because of who we're playing or what we're doing," Merchant said. "It's how we know how to play baseball and it's what we train for all year long every year. "We're going to play aggressive and we're going to attack as much as humanly possible," Merchant said. Meanwhile Hesslink, who also tossed a complete-game as a sophomore in last year's final, managed to one-up himself against the Redhawks (18-2). The left-hander struck out the side in the last two innings as he went the distance on 111 pitches,...
Several times a week for nearly four years, Donna Watson of Newark calls state animal control to see if officers have picked up Rudy, her shrewd miniature dachshund. Then she steels herself to call the Delaware Department of Transportation to see if Rudy has been picked up – in another form. The smooth, short-coated red dachshund with the soulful eyes has become the talk of Brookhaven and beyond since he went missing from a pet sitter's yard on Christmas Day of 2011. Meanwhile, the blaring-yellow "Still Missing" Rudy signs and... Last month, the state agency fined Watson $175 for seven violations of interfering with the public right-of-way. Watson denies that she placed the offending signs, noting that any one of her 13,000 Facebook followers can print them off her "Bring Rudy Home" page. Perturbed, she has launched a letter-writing campaign against DelDOT on Facebook and Twitter, accusing the agency of "selective enforcement" of its sign laws. To buttress her claims, she has snapped photos of roadside memorials, also illegal in the right-of-way, which DelDOT has ignored for years. "It's about equality under the law," says Watson, 61, who has petitioned the state to create a lost-and-found pet registry.
