These are great players. We’d love them to be Red Sox for the rest of their careers,’’ Werner said in response to a question about contract talks with Sale and Bogaerts. “We’d love to be able to have long-term contracts with [Sale, Bogaerts, and Betts]. But our conversations with them, which are ongoing, are private. I think that’s the best way to consummate … [Read more...] about Here’s what John Henry and Tom Werner had to say about the state of the Red Sox
Michael H. Hodges Detroit News Fine Arts Writer Published 12:52 AM EST Jan 3, 2019 Feeling a little hopeless about the American political experiment? A cure for what ails you might be to wander through "Enduring Ideals: Rockwell, Roosevelt & the Four Freedoms" at The Henry Ford, which focuses on the four Saturday Evening Post covers illustrating those freedoms that Norman Rockwell painted during World War II. But move quickly: the show, organized by the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, closes Jan. 13. While this sprawling exhibition targets Rockwell's "Four Freedoms" — freedom of speech and worship, and freedom from want and fear — it reaches well beyond those canvases to illustrate how President Roosevelt's administration recruited American artists in the war effort, as well as raising challenging questions about how this nation defined freedom then and now. While a good number of … [Read more...] about Rockwell and WWII at The Henry Ford
James Hawkins The Detroit News Published 5:08 PM EST Dec 14, 2018 Ann Arbor — When Michigan coach John Beilein recruited freshman forward Brandon Johns Jr., he never envisioned using him as a stretch five. How things have changed. With freshman Ignas Brazdeikis and sophomore Isaiah Livers flourishing and holding down the four spot for the No. 5 Wolverines, that has created a roadblock for Johns. But with the backup center position in need of depth, that has opened an avenue for Johns. “I think his eventual position will be a four-man…but you are who you can guard and that's where he is right now,” Beilein said Friday, ahead of Saturday's game with Western Michigan. “I'm just trying to get him on the floor. What's his easiest path to getting on the floor this year? That may be the easiest path right now.

By Connor Muldowney Special to The Detroit News Published 10:44 PM EST Dec 3, 2018 Trailing by 10 in the second half on Monday night, Detroit Henry Ford girls basketball’s Dajanee Cox got hot and the team rode that momentum to a 52-42 win over Detroit Public Safety Academy. Henry Ford got off to a slow start and though it was tied heading into halftime, those tired legs led to a 10-point second-half deficit before Cox’s surge. She scored 10 straight points to tie the score and Henry Ford never looked back. “She’s working hard and comes from a pedigree of basketball players,” Henry Ford coach Candice Pickens said. “So she understands how much work it’s going to take (to lead the team).” Cox finished with 27 points, leading Henry Ford, and Geonecia Lewis added 20. Although Cox had a career game, Pickens noticed a glaring weakness, not just with her, but with the entire team: missed layups. “We’re going to shoot about a … [Read more...] about Monday’s high schools: Henry Ford rallies to victory over DPSA
