Ex-Coal Lobbyist Heading EPA: Unsafe Water Is ‘Biggest Threat,’ Not Climate

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Environmental Protection Agency’s new administrator says unsafe drinking water is “probably the biggest environmental threat” the world faces. Andrew Wheeler told CBS News in an interview airing Wednesday climate change is “an important issue” but most of the threats it poses are “50 to 75 years out” and it’s “unreasonable” for the 2020 Democratic candidates to focus so much on it. Climate scientists see the necessity for broad and immediate action to address global warmi...

Maple Leafs Gardiner & Brown: Will They Be Back in Blue & White?

Wheeler reported that, although the Maple Leafs would like to keep both players, they will be forced to make some difficult salary-cap decisions that will result in thes...

Two Proud Boys Members Indicted On Assault Charges For Portland Attack

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A member of the right-wing Proud Boys group was arrested Tuesday in Oregon after being indicted last month on assault charges. The arrest came a day after the mayor of Portland complained that law enforcement was essentially ignoring violent protests in the city. Protests occur often in Portland and police have at times struggled to contain violent clashes. “In what city is it legal to engage in a street brawl?” Mayor Ted Wheeler asked Monday at a news conference. The Ore...

Hayes Gives Jets Deadly Second Line Again

In the midst of the Winnipeg Jets’ lower points during the months of February, before they acquired Kevin Hayes they were far too often a one-line team. With Patrik Laine slumping, it fell to Blake Wheeler, Mark Scheifele and Kyle Connor to shoulder the whole offensive load. Now, however, Hayes coming to the team via trade in the early part of deadline day means teams facing the Jets can’t just hone in on Wheeler’s unit. If they do, they risk being eaten alive by the newly-formed second line. No...

A Four Goal Night For Blake Wheeler

from Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun, Wheeler hadn’t produced a four-goal game since he was in Grade 11 at Breck High School in Minnesota. “You want to contribute. That’s the biggest thing. I think that’s the goal for our line every night, to contribute in such fashion. Obviously the score sheet is part of our job,” said Wheeler, who is riding a six-game point streak and is up to 17 goals and 80 points in 65 games this season. “We pride ourselves on all the little details in the game.

Jets’ Top Trio Elevates Patrik Laine

The Winnipeg Jets desperately needed to kick-start Patrik Laine after the biggest slump of his young career. The magic formula to break that slump turned out to be what many Jets fans had been clamoring for all season: a change in linemates. It wasn’t exactly the change everyone wanted, but it was apparently the right one. Say whatever you will about Jets coach Paul Maurice’s much-discussed line blender, every now and then it hits a grand slam. Such was the case for Laine who, since joining Mark...
