Detroit — Five men who broke into Dietta Gueye's east side home early Tuesday morning got more than they bargained for when the 34-year-old woman opened fire at them with the 9 mm Glock she keeps by her bedside. One of the men shot back and hit Gueye in the right thigh. "I'm kind of just a little sore," she said. The incident is the second this week in which a woman with a concealed pistol license opened fire on criminals in Detroit. On Monday, a 27-year-old woman shot a 16-year-old would-be carjacker in the arm. Detroit Police Chief James Craig made national headlines last year when he said "good Americans" with concealed weapons licenses could lower the crime rate, because it would make criminals reluctant to attack them. Gueye believes the five men who broke into her house Tuesday likely will think twice before doing it again. Gueye said she was asleep Tuesday morning in her home in the 12400 block of Whitehill when she heard a tap at her window. I thought maybe kids were out playing and hit the window with a rock," she said. She glanced at the clock: It was 2:37 a. m. "Then I heard a second tap — then glass shattering," she said. "They told me if someone has a gun on you, don't make any quick movements," she said.
Mookie Betts might be a budding star for the Boston Red Sox , but the center fielder's baseball career began as a simple mom-and-popup operation in Nashville, Tennessee. Betts' mom, Diana Benedict, coached his first organized baseball team. Sporting a green Ninja Turtle glove and suspenders because the team didn't have a uniform small enough for him, little Mookie came up big and made Mom proud. "I remember catching my first popup," Betts said. "After I caught it, I looked to my mom, raised the ball up and said, 'Mommy. I caught it. '". Betts is one of several major league players whose baseball roots trace back to the family matriarch. Texas Rangers reliever Anthony Bass ' mom, Linda, was his first coach-pitch coach in Trenton, Michigan. Mom grooved a pitch right down the middle, and Anthony pounced on it. "I was trying to take her head off [with line drives]," Bass joked. "My favorite memory of her coaching was hitting a home run off her when I was 7. When I crossed home plate she was smiling from ear to ear. Betts almost did clean mom's clock with a comebacker. A line drive up the middle against Diana in coach-pitch sent her to the sideline. "I let one of the other coaches pitch from that point on," she said. "I didn't want Mookie to change his swing because he was afraid of hitting me. ". CC Sabathia's mom, Margie Sabathia-Lanier, didn't pitch to her son, but she did.
Lansing — The state agency responsible for inspecting adult foster care facilities and senior citizen group homes failed to notify authorities in the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services of patient neglect and abuse complaints,... A report by Auditor General Doug Ringler says the state’s adult foster care licensing division did not report abuse allegations to the Adult Protective Services division within the department in 12 of 48 cases — 25 percent — that auditors sampled... “Although licensing policy requires staff to report all allegations of abuse, neglect and/or exploitation to APS, the division stated that staff did not consistently follow this policy because they believed that they should establish reasonable... The Adult Foster Care and Homes for the Aged Licensing Division also failed to ensure the facilities it regulates conduct background checks of all employees, according to the audit. People with physical, mental or developmental disabilities who do not require round-the-clock nursing care may live in state-licensed adult foster care homes. State auditors randomly selected 44 adult foster care facilities employing 1,574 workers and found.
