first_img Pinterest Twitter Jason Namako RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR WWE tag team pulled from live events, Batista and RAW tonight, Former WWE star to retire WWE releases behind the scenes documentary of Super ShowDown 2019 Sporting News has a new interview up with WWE star Adam Rose about his thoughts on the ESPN E:60 documentary that showcased him and more.Thoughts on the documentary:“I thought it was really well done. I think it was a really good look at all the different aspects of first what it takes to become a WWE superstar and secondly a personal look at what the guys go through to get there. “It makes you a little vulnerable when you see things that personal coming out. For my wife, I think it was hard because she has been with me through the entire journey. She’s been with me through all the ups and all the downs. It’s hard for her to watch me go through all of that. And then to see it all pay off at the end of the day, I think we all share in the reward of that.”Origins of the Adam Rose character:“The initial inspiration was Elton John and I wanted something where I could be really flamboyant and dress up and show a completely different look. I had always done a South African accent and I wanted to do something with more of a European accent. Then someone else said to me it was pretty much Russell Brand and then I hooked on to the Russell Brand stuff and put a lot of that into Adam Rose.”Sportingnews.com: Adam Rose reveals family life, journey to WWE superstardom in E:60 documentarycenter_img Google+ New Day show support for Kofi Kingston, Early look at new Mark Henry documentary Facebook WhatsApplast_img read more

Nevada becomes one of Trumps big hopes for swing state win

first_imgLAS VEGAS — Russ Wheeler bears the financial scars of Nevada’s lost decade, and he hopes Donald Trump can heal them.He worked for a Las Vegas roofing company when the real estate bust crushed the state’s economy. He took two pay cuts before getting laid off. He had to commute into the California desert to find work after that. Wheeler considers himself one of the lucky ones. He was able to build up enough savings to retire, but even now his wife had her teaching hours reduced at a community college, dramatically reducing their household’s income.“It’ll be better with Trump because he’ll bring the jobs back,” Wheeler, 66, said as he stopped by a Republican Party office to scoop up some “Make America Great Again” yard signs and bumper stickers. “Everybody I know is a Trump supporter. He resonates well in Nevada.”Nevada is the most diverse battleground state. On paper, it should be secure for Democrats. But there are enough people like Wheeler, still rattled by the recession and frustrated about other things, to make it one of Trump’s best swing states.last_img read more

Press Talk Theres always something going on

first_imgLou Brancaccio is The Columbian’s editor emeritus. His column of personal opinion appears the first Saturday of every month. Reach him at lounews1@gmail.com. Sometimes, you can’t turn around without finding the usual suspects helping our community in so many ways.Take Vancouver Councilor Anne McEnerny-Ogle.One day, she’s introducing a noon concert at Esther Short Park, the next day, she’s baking pies for visiting law enforcement officers and — yep— that was Anne scrubbing clean a mural in the city.Oh, and those pies? They’re illegal in 14 states. Too dang addictive.But this isn’t a column about Anne. It’s a column about our community and the number of events we hold, not only to bring us together but to assist those who need help.Hey, government can’t do it all.I was thinking about all these events when I found myself in a bit of a jam this weekend. Too many things to do and not enough cloning.Look, if I can be honest, I go to my fair share of events; but when I did the math, I found that I was number 10,034 on a list of folks who are out there doing good things. Yep, that’s chump change compared with so many others.last_img read more

Man sentenced to 2½ years in assault on infant

first_imgA Vancouver man who assaulted his 3-month-old son, causing 15 rib fractures, was sentenced Wednesday to about 2 1/2 years in prison.William Jeffrey Burleson, 37, previously pleaded guilty in Clark County Superior Court to second-degree domestic violence assault of a child.According to an affidavit of probable cause, Julia Durr brought her 3-month-old son, identified in court records as JD, to a hospital out of concern that his ear was swelling. Clark County sheriff’s deputies responded to Randall Children’s Hospital at Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in Portland and learned that JD had 15 rib fractures and a partial laceration on his liver.Durr told authorities that she was worried Burleson was too rough with JD, the affidavit states.In an interview, Burleson told investigators there were times he hugged JD tightly and squeezed his ear but said he did not try to intentionally hurt the boy. When the deputy pointed out that there were multiple injuries inflicted over a few weeks and that not all of them could be accidental, Burleson claimed there were times when he was “tired and half-asleep and might not realize what he is doing,” according to the court document.On Wednesday, Burleson’s attorney, David Kurtz, told the judge that his client admits to hurting the boy, but it wasn’t intentional. He said Burleson lacked parenting skills and that many of the child care duties had fallen on him.Judge Robert Lewis accepted the attorneys’ previously agreed-upon sentencing recommendation of 31 months in prison followed by 18 months of community custody. Burleson will also have to undergo a parenting class and an anger management evaluation. He is not to have contact with his son.last_img read more

Texas mourners endure grief that none of us can comprehend

first_imgSANTA FE, Texas — Congregations in this deeply religious community near Houston gathered Sunday for their first services since a gunman blasted his way into the high school and killed 10 people, with one pastor lamenting the grief “that none of us can comprehend.”Just two days after the deaths of eight students and two substitute teachers, the pastor of the Dayspring Church acknowledged the pain wracking Santa Fe, a town of 13,000.“They will never be forgotten in this community, these young people, children just going to school,” said Brad Drake, who then read the names of the dead, including a slain student who attended services at Dayspring.“We have families today that are grieving a grief that none of us can comprehend.”The family of the slain student, Angelique Ramirez, did not attend the service. She was a member of the church’s youth ministry, Drake said.“She was a sweet young lady, had a style all of her own,” he recalled. “She almost always had a new hairstyle.”Kelly Ward, who runs a ministry in Springfield, Missouri, and is a licensed counselor, took the stage to urge congregants not to hold in their emotions.last_img read more

Vancouver man in court in arson case

first_imgA 38-year-old Vancouver man wanted since March for allegedly lighting a bed on fire while his mother was inside their home appeared Thursday morning in Clark County Superior Court.Judge Derek Vanderwood granted an arrest warrant against Michael Grant Fuller on March 30, based on a charge of first-degree domestic violence arson.Court records show that authorities couldn’t locate Fuller for the alleged Feb. 11 incident and opted to obtain a warrant due to concerns for the victim’s safety, and Fuller’s history of failing to show up to court for prior criminal cases.According to a probable cause affidavit, Fuller was upset and lit his bed on fire in his bedroom while his mother was in the house. His mother extinguished the fire before it spread.“Michael (Fuller) told his mother, you can put that one out, but I’ll come back tonight and start another one while you’re asleep,” the affidavit says.The Clark County Jail’s inmate roster shows Fuller was booked Thursday.Judge Robert Lewis set Fuller’s bail at $20,000 during his first appearance.

Amazons 15 an hour a win Not so some veteran workers say

first_imgNEW YORK — Amazon’s announcement that it would raise its hourly minimum wage to $15 has been seen as a win for workers. But some longtime employees say they are losing out.Those who already made $15 will get an extra dollar an hour when the change is made next month, but they will also lose two benefits they relied on: monthly bonuses that could top hundreds of dollars and a chance to own Amazon’s sky-rocketing stock, currently worth nearly $2,000 a share.At least four longtime workers, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity for fear they would be fired, said the $1 an hour raise would not make up for the lost benefits. The employees, all of whom work in different warehouses around the country, said the $15 minimum wage was great for new workers, but the math didn’t work out for those who have worked at Amazon’s warehouses for a few years.“I feel hugely disrespected,” said a worker at a warehouse in North East, Maryland. “The ones who are loyal should be rewarded for loyalty, not smacked in the face.”According to Amazon, the wage increase will benefit more than 350,000 workers, including full-time, part-time, temporary and seasonal positions, as well as those at its grocery chain Whole Foods. Economists said the move could put pressure on other large employers to raise wages.last_img read more
