Correspondent Published 12:00 am CST, Tuesday, December 11, 2018 The good news for Sam Houston is bad news for the rest of District 27-5A. After losing one of its few veteran starters, Jada Sheridan, to a torn anterior ligament injury not long before the season started, the Hurricanes (13-7, 2-0) are starting to get on track, according to coach Marchae Woods. “They’re just starting to figure out who they are without Jada,” Woods said. “Khadija (Derry) has stepped up. For her to start to own it, is great.” The Hurricanes looked somewhat unstoppable Dec. 7 in a 62-33 win over Burbank (7-12, 0-2) in the nightcap at Alamo convocation Center. In the third game of the evening, Burbank senior Ariana Zapata (19 points, 4 steals) scored nine of the first 11 points. However, the Hurricanes were within 9-8 at the end of the quarter, as Sam Houston juniors Derry (16 points) and Kaliyah Brown each supplied a pair of baskets. “Ariana was on a … [Read more...] about Sam Houston overwhelms Burbank

Mark Phelan Detroit Free Press Published 8:00 AM EDT Oct 25, 2018 New vehicles and technologies got hammered in Consumer Reports 2018 study of vehicle reliability. As a result, ratings for longtime CR favorites Honda and Tesla plummeted, and every brand from the Detroit Three was mired in the lower half of the industry. Countless buyers consider CR’s ratings when shopping for a new car, so this is great news for perennial Nos. 1 and 2 Lexus and Toyota — in that order this year, flipping from 2018. Like fans of a losing sports team, Ford, General Motors and Fiat Chrysler are left to say “wait till next year.” “The early adopters of technology get penalized in terms of reliability,” CR director of automotive testing Jake Fisher said, speaking to the Automotive Press Association in Detroit. “Don’t chase the new technology.

Other Detroit automakers also fared poorly. The highest-ranking American brand, Ford, doesn't show up until 18th place. It was followed by Buick, Lincoln, Dodge, Jeep, Chevrolet, Chrysler, GMC and Ram. Tesla also was near the bottom of the pack, just ahead of Cadillac in the ranking of 29 brands in the survey released Wednesday. The best auto brand in the survey was Lexus, followed by Toyota then Mazda, which moved up nine places. Seven of the top 10 brands come from Japan or South Korea.
